Hunted - A Kingdom Hearts Story

Sad, Mad and Glad

I smiled as we all trotted back to where to camp. Mom said she had to help a four of her friends recover. She said it would be about two nights before she would meet my dad at the clearing not far from the camp and mom's camp.

Xinev agreed happily to come back to camp with Cloud and I. Of course when I returned to camp I was clomped by both Sora and my boyfriend. But Axel waited patiently for Sora to get off of me to attack me.

"What am I going to do with you Roxy?" He asked as he had me pinned down on the ground.

"Hmm, that's a good question." I laughed as kissed my cheek.

"Hey!" I froze completely forgetting that Xinev didn't know about me and Axel. "Get your hands off my brother!"

"Rox, Who is he?" Axel asked me as we both stood.

"Uh… Well… Axel this is my older brother Xinev, Xinev this is my boyfriend Axel." They both glared at each other that is until Sora broke it by snapping his figures. I'm guessing he asked Axel a question.

"Hello? Anybody home?" Sora asked as Axel looked at him.

"What Sora?"

"Has Roxas seen the letter yet?"

"Letter?" I asked. "What Letter?"

Both Sora and Axel looked over to me with sad eyes before Namine and Riku joined us. They too seemed disappointed. I looked over to Cloud and Leon as Cloud handed me the letter.

(A/N: You know the letter Xion wrote in Chapter 23 it's the same thing you don't have to read it again if you don't wanna.)

Roxas… Axel…

We had some fun times while working for the organization… even though I was really only a puppet of Roxas… but when we all became Werewolves, I think that's when I finally found, I did have a heart, it was part of someone else's though. That someone else is the somebody of a boy I'd once protected as an Angel…

Sadly… I failed to protect him, I knew this day would come… this day when I failed at taking him home for the night… I still don't remember much of what happened that night. I honestly feel like this was meant to happen, from the day I was killed.

Sure I was happy to see you two again, but was it really worth it sense all I did was hurt you both? I think not, Roxas you may say differently, Axel… not so much.

I was glad… that we were once friends… now I'm nothing… not even a memory to you two, I'll soon be erased from you memory, so writing this letter won't mean much, but I just wanted to say goodbye…

I really hope Yuffie does a good job of freeing you Roxas… and I'm sorry that I failed you… I really hope you get home safely, this war will end soon… it has too, and once it does… you and your family will be together again, You Your father, your mother, and brother, and who knows, maybe even Axel will be.

I hope you and Axel live forever happily, and I'm sorry I couldn't be there to enjoy it with you two… I hope you both have a wonderful life… without me in it…

So long my friends… you may not remember me… but… I'll remember you…

Xion.

I read the letter out loud. I was crying before I even finished the letter, when she thought that when I saw her again she was only hurting everyone, I started getting choked up. Xion… I lost her again… and this is the second time in a row I didn't get to say goodbye.

As tears rolled freely down my face I saw Namine crying with my brother holding her. Sora was crying into Riku's chest. Riku also had a few stray tears. Then I looked over to Cloud and Leon who both looked at the ground in shame they did something terrible.

I'll have to ask them about it later, because when I felt the two arms wrap around my waist, I turned into Axel's chest and cried harder. Why did my life have to be so screwed up?!

Axel started to comb my hair with his fingers as he tried to calm me. Cid, Yuffie, Zack, Aerith, Tifa, and know Xion?! Why is everyone dying because of me?! What is so special about me?!

'You know what Cloud Strife! Fuck you! I gave you everything I could… and now you're leaving me for someone you've only just met!'

'Don't worry I will get revenge! But you won't ever know when! I'll will get my revenge you slutly bastard!'

Sephiroth. It's all Sephiroth fault that this people are dying! Not me! I want to take my revenge on him… He won't use me for revenge, when I can give him his.

I fisted my hand into Axel's shirt as my sobs became little whimpers.

Sephiroth is down by numbers now. There was only Him, Xemnas, Saix, Maleficent, Xehanort and Vanitas. That's six against us, a team built of Cloud, Leon, Riku, Sora, Namine, Xinev, Ven, Axel, Mom, her friends, and me. Not to mention Hayner, Kairi, Olette and Pence. That's a team of 18.

"You know…" I said as I finally calmed down enough to speak. "Everyone that I know and love who have passed has been because of Sephiroth and his gang of 5. But to think of all of the others plus Mom's friends, we out number them by six more people." Cloud and Leon looked at me with a small smirk as Sora and Riku broke their hug to look at me as well. Namine and Xinev paid attention to me too.

"What are you getting at Roxas?" Axel asked.

"I'm saying that all of this that has happened is because of Sephiroth." I said as I looked at Cloud. "Sephiroth told me I was he revenge by showing me his past, I wasn't sure if it was false or true, but it still made the point pretty clear that I'm Sephiroth's revenge on Cloud."

"What happened?" Sora asked. I looked at Cloud for approval and he nodded his head for an agreement.

"Cloud and Sephiroth where once friends, after a few months of being friends, they started dating, but when they we dating for couple years, My father told Sephiroth that he was starting to love My mother."

"So how did Cloud and Sephiroth meet?" Namine asked.

"Sephiroth lived by himself in the wild." Dad said. "When my parents told me I was being forced in marriage I fled into the woods, something a rarely ever did. So when I came across Sephiroth I told him about the forced marriage. But as we started to date, I understood the ways of love, and I became closer to Lexia, and that's when I found that Lexia and I were actually meant to be together."

"So why did you go to Leon when you thought Lexia died?" Riku asked.

"Even though I still had my memories of the boys, they never really remembered us, so when I heard of Lexia's death, I started to think that I would have to move on. And I did, Leon and I became really close. I knew I wouldn't be able to handle these numbskulls by myself, so I had to have some back-up."

"Hey!" Me and Xinev said as we realized what Cloud did there he was trying to lighten the mood.

Everyone laughed as me and Xinev gave one look at each other and we had a plan formed. "Well, I guess we learn from the best." Xinev said as I sneaked past everyone to get into a tree as everyone once again broke down in laughter. "What's wrong dad? You know you don't look good in red?" Everyone was breaking down in laughter except for Dad.

Now was my chance. I slipped from down from the branch only to have Riku notice me. I let go of the branch with one hand and place a finger on my lips. He nodded his head and continued to laugh. I dropped down from the branch and held to one end of the vine I had found. I tossed it behind dad to Xinev who then turned invisible. I did too. We then ran at normal pace forwards tripping Cloud to land on his butt.

When we saw the looks on Cloud's face both Xinev and I broke out in laughter and high-fived each other.

"I'll give you till the count of 3 to run." Both Xinev and I looked down to our dad then back to each other before we booked it out of there. I grabbed Axel's arm so he would come with me just in case.

I'm actually kind of glad that Cloud lighten the mood, because I don't look good when being angry.

"Hey, Rox! Remember me!" Axel cried as I came to a stop in one of the highest trees I could find close to camp.

"Of course I do." I said as he was a few branches below me. I leaned back till my back was against the trunk of the tree.

"Good then this won't be a surprise." Before I knew it was shoved on the trunk even harder as Axel captured my lips into a bruising kiss. As much as I wanted to play hard-to-get with him, as he licked my bottom lip asking for entrance, I kind of melted into the kiss letting his tongue explore my mouth for a few second before I start to battle his tongue.

"First you Touch my brother with your hand now your touching him with your lips!? Come on dude!" I couldn't help but laugh at my brother as Axel jerked back afraid of my brother's wrath.

"You scaredy cat, He can't climb trees unless he is a werewolf." I said as a memory of when he and I used to play tag when I was smaller.

"He can't!" Axel asked with excitement. When I nodded yes he captured my lips once again only this time he was determined to make it as slow and sweet as he could just to piss my brother off.

When I couldn't breathe he released my lips. "You… Know… he'll kill you… when it's night?" I asked with pants in between Axel was panting too only to give me a smile.

"Well… then I guess… I'll just have to deal with it… because it's hard not to resist you." Axel said as he and I switched places. He leaned against the trunk of the tree and pulled me into his lap. "You know Roxy, I don't know what I'm going to do when we have to go out to battle."

"Axel…" I was lost at words because I didn't want him to get hurt just like he didn't want to see me hurt.

"I know I know, you don't want to see me hurt, but I don't want to see you hurt, so in order to do that I gotta fight."

"Axel, can you make me a promise?" He nodded his head as I kissed his neck. "Come back to me alive."
