Chapter Four: Hysterics and Life Saving

Axel finally got up and helped me up. “What will we tell the others?” I asked.

“That we are finally going out. They have been predicting it, or at least the boys have.” he said.

He grabbed my hand and I cried out. “Ow! I forgot about the fight with Saix. Speaking of him, what did he do to me?” I grabbed my throat, remembering the kiss.

“In the group, Saix was Xemnas' right hand man. When Xemnas wanted something, Saix got it for him. Or marked it. I recognized it when he did it to you. Once that happens, the group can always find you. It's kind of like you have a chip in you. Do you get it?” he said.

I nodded and looked ahead. “That’s scary. I don't want them to find me. Or you...” I said, putting my arm around me.

“Don’t worry. We only have two years left and then we can get away from everyone. Then it will be just the two of us. But for now...” he took my hurt hand and kissed it gently so he wouldn’t hurt me, “...we have to deal with them.” He pointed at the others. I didn’t realize it but we were back among our friends.

“Axel! Mickey!” We stopped walking and waited for them to come to us. “Where have you been? We were looking everywhere for you.” Sora said, looking at us.

“Yeah, and when we spotted you we saw Axel kissing your hand.” Namine said.

I blushed and looked at Riku. He looked at me and rescued me from their never-ending questions. “Most likely, Axel made Mickey mad and she punched him. Then he felt sorry, told her his true feelings for her, and now they’re going out. And then he kissed her hand to make her feel better. Isn’t that right?” Riku asked.

I was stunned by what Riku guessed. “You know me too well.”

Axel rescued me. “We are going out and to prove it...” he said, lifting my face up, “...here is our first kiss.” he said quietly. The kiss wasn’t hard and demanding, but soft and full of passion.

“Wow.” was all I could say.

Kairi and Namine had their mouths open and Sora and Roxas were snickering. “Oh, yeah? Namine and Kairi, I think your boyfriends want one, too.” I said with spite. They soon snapped to reality and started chasing Roxas and Sora. With them gone, and Axel’s hand around me, I turned to Riku. “Thank you. Do you want to know what else happened?”

“No, Mickey. It's your business and I’m just happy for Axel. He got a real beauty...” he said, leaving us.

“What does he mean by 'beauty', Axel? I’m ugly.” I said.

“No, Mickey. Even though you think that, you're not. Your eyes are a perfect hazel, your lips are full, your face is perfect, and your hair is a beautiful golden brown. I might just keep you away from everyone. But there is one problem. What will we do for our date tonight?”

I looked at him with confusion. “What date?”

“I want to give you something special, like Demyx did. But tonight when everyone is asleep.”

I smiled at the idea. “I like it. Just the two of us.” I said putting my arms around his neck.

“So, we agree?”

“Yeah, but what is it?”

He smiled and shook his head, “No, I can’t tell you, my sphinx. But we are leaving tomorrow. Namine and Kairi want to make sure they have plenty of time before school starts so they can get new clothes.”

“Uh, don’t they have clothes they've never wore before?”

He laughed, "Yeah, but they said those are old clothes. Out of style.”

I cringed my nose like I smelled something bad. “I don’t want to go back to school.”

“Neither do I, but school is school. You still want to get into that college for game designers, don’t you?”

“Yeah, but I still don’t like school.” He laughed and moved my arms off of him. He picked me up and started to walk back to my towel.

“I’m worried about what Saix said. If what he said is true then we will get a visit from Demyx tonight. At first I couldn’t wait, but now I want them to leave us alone.”

“Don’t worry, okay? Just think about our date.” I pouted and looked at him. When we got back to my towel, he sat me down on it and then he sat beside me. “Don’t be like that. Don’t pout or else.” Axel smiled evily.

“Or else what?” I asked, challenging him. He pounced on me and started to tickle me. “OK! STOP IT!” I yelled, laughing. When he finally stopped both our faces were flushed.

“Having fun, Mickey?” a cold voice asked.

“Demyx!” I gasped and turned.
