The Silence - Chapter INot once have I ever walked into my school thinking that I was going to be greeted by a large group of friends, smiling widely as they saw me, flinging their arms around me and asking me the pointless day by day questions such as, "how was your night?" and "is everything okay at home?" even though they had seen you less than a day ago, so not much could have possibly changed that much during that time, today was no exception for me, I received no smiles, no hugs and no questions.
I had never seen the need to make friends seen as though that three quarters of the world lost touch with their high school friends and never saw them ever again, so why should I bother if all of the friends I make at this school would just suddenly disappear? It makes it easier when it comes to special holidays like Christmas and New Years Day as the gift list is pretty small. Plus, in my experience with 'friends', I had found them to be two faced, backstabbers and bullies that liked to make you feel as if yo
RosesThe wind cuts over the manicured grass and through brilliant crimson spikes layering over broad shoulders. The freezing air wraps around his lanky frame like wire biting into his skin, making him aware of where he’s going with every step that he takes. The trees loom over him with branches stretching out desperately, their budding branches trying to shelter him from the moonlight. His plain black tennis shoes stomp softly on the pathway that he hasn’t walked along since that day, that bright sunny day where everything seemed to hit him all at once.
He stops beside a row of gravestones, knowing where to go only by memory. The organ in his chest thuds painfully, wanting to leap out of his throat as well as the contents of his stomach. Nothing about walking over ground where the dead lies sends any comfort to his already tormented mind, everything about this situation sending chills down his spine. From his pale countenance shine emerald eyes dulling with every second he
The Silence - Chapter VIIII could barely control my breathing as Axel continued to move his lips against mine, his large hand caressing my cheek as his other hand lay on my lower back. I had to take back my original thoughts on kissing because it wasn't strange; it wasn't as disgusting as I thought. It was so amazing and whether that was just because I'd never been kissed before or whether it was down to the fact that Axel was just a good kisser, I had no idea, but I didn't care.
I hadn't a clue on how to react or how to actually kiss back; you certainly don't get taught how to do this in school.
'Do I just pucker my lips?' I hesitated before pushing my lips up to move into his a bit more and his hold on me got tighter so I gathered I was doing it right and then I began to slowly move my lips against his, sparks shooting through my body as I started to get the hang of it and I felt him smile against my lips as we started to kiss properly.
"Thank god," Axel snickered as his warm lips pulled away from mine a
The Silence - Chapter IVAxel's home wasn't at all what I had expected it to be, for one thing it was tidy and anyway who came across Axel would agree with me when I say that he looked like he would live in an old rock and roll caravan.
It was Axel's parents that shocked me more than his tidiness; they were a lot more formal and polite than Axel was though that wasn't exactly hard to be.
"My room is just here," Axel smiled at me and pulled down on the golden handle, pushing the door open for me and I rolled my eyes once again as I saw the strange glitter in his eyes come back. His room had dark blue walls with bright red curtains, many CD's and DVD's were scattered underneath his bed which was unmade and the covers made me smile as I tried not to laugh, he was obviously a big Marvel comic fan as he had stacks of them on his shelves and his bed covers were of Spiderman and his pillow case was Batman.
'Okay I have something in common with him I guess' I blinked a few times as I watched him shove books and g

"Be careful!" I gritted my teeth and turned to scowl at Axel, whose hands were hovering just around my hips, trying to make sure I didn't fall as I entered my front door for the first time since coming home from hospital.
"Axel," I moaned and rolled my eyes, "I hit my head, I can walk fine," I continued explaining and I saw him pout slightly before his hands grabbed my waist and pulled me towards him, squeezing me tightly in his arms.
'Damn you, you know you're hugs make me forgive you, damn you to fucking hell, Axel'
"I just worry Zexion, you've been through too much," Axel sighed as he placed a kiss on the top of my head, Vexen smiled slightly at us when he managed to get around our embrace and shuffled into the kitchen.
"Yeah," I murmured and look up at him with what little room he gave me in his arms, "but you were there, so it's alright," I was actually just babbling at this moment, I wanted to get inside for the sheer fact that it was freezing, thou
The Silence - Chapter XIIIIt was all Axel's fault that I was on edge, biting my fingernails so much that I thought I would start to cut through my skin at any minuet. Why was this all Axel's fault? Well basically he had opened up the gates to my past and had allowed it to freely wrap itself to tighten around my throat once more I wanted to know about the parents that had given me up. A pointless thing to be wondering about seen as though I kept on asking myself why the hell I would want to know these horrible human beings who gave me up, I had been told that they didn't want me.
"V-Vexen," I still stuttered when talking to anyone but Axel, though the smile on Vexen's face told me he didn't care.
"Yes?" Vexen stirred our coffee as he poured the milk in and then placed a cup in front of me, which I cupped quickly as soon as it was on the table.
"Could could you tell me about my " I cleared my throat as I stared at the table, poking my coffee cup, "my birth parents?" I finally finished and cringed a
The Silence - Chapter XIIIt took me a while to realize what I had just confessed and I instinctively tried to take it back as I saw the shocked expression on Axel's face, my heart pounded I fear in case I had said something wrong and I covered my hands with my face. To say I was panicking was a huge understatement.
'This is why you didn't speak, this is why you shouldn't have started to talk dammit!' I screamed at myself inside my head, but I was pulled out of my self-torture when something warm gently grabbed at my wrists, pulling my hands away from my face and I opened my eyes just in time to see Axel moving closer to my face before our lips connected and I blushed heavily as he pulled me onto his lap, making sure not to break our kiss.
"You need," his lips came back to mine, "to stop worrying," again, they came back, "that I don't feel," and again, "the same way," my heart fluttered as I pulled at his red hair and I felt myself smiling into the kiss, even when he pulled away, I was still smiling, "because I
The Silence - Chapter IIIChapter III
Whilst I was listening to Axel ramble on and on about how much he wished he could hear me speak, I couldn't hear what Terra was saying to the class, not that I was actually paying much attention anyways as I was still getting over the fact that Axel had held my hand. I sighed loudly, making Axel finally shut up as he must have sensed my irritation levels hitting the roof and he smiled bashfully at me, I had to admit that he looked cute when he was blushing.
"So that's settled then, you all know your partners for this assignment and I expect a report on updates of your project during the four week time period I'm giving you," Terra explained as he tapped the edge of a large textbook onto his shoulders, his eyes flickering to mine. Project? Partners? God DAMN it Axel why did you talk so much, I would at least some idea as to what on earth Terra was going on about if you had kept your trap shut!
"Project?" thankfully Axel and myself weren't the only ones who hadn't been l
The Silence - Chapter V"We've been researching for hours now, I think we should take a break," Axel laughed as he minimized the screen with all of the research on and twirled in his chair towards me with a playful smile and I snapped my notebook shut, placing it on the desk beside me.
"I want to get you talking," Axel muttered to himself but loudly enough so I could hear him, something every human does, mostly for attention most of the time.
I folded my arms across my chest and raised my eyebrows, 'and how exactly are you going to do that Spiky?' I smiled at my nickname that I had recently been calling him in my head 'Spiky', I had noticed that I was feeling and doing a lot more things ever since I had met Axel, nickname giving one of them, but the other
"I'm going to do something you might punch me for later on, but I want to get you talking," Axel smirked and he licked his lips.
My heart stopped in my chest and my eyes widened dramatically as he once again moved his face closer to mine, his hands cre
The Silence - Chapter VIIMy fingers pulled his shirt tighter as Axel moved his lips towards mine and my eyes slipped shut as he pulled me up gently. 'Do it' I was surprised at how forceful that thought had been and Axel seemed to notice as he had stopped leaning in and I blushed heavily as he smiled.
"Never mind," he murmured and pulled me close to his chest again, his hand on the back of my head and I scowled at his shirt at my stupidity, add my name to the list that holds 'moment wreckers'. I wanted to kiss him a lot. But I had never kissed anyone before, how do you even work it? I can't possibly imagine how rubbing your lips on someone else's can be enjoyable, especially seen as though you share saliva, where does it go? Do I just swallow the saliva? I had been watching couples since I had started puberty and I had always been wondering why kissing was so enjoyable that they just had to do it in public in front of me? The male in the relationship seemed to enjoy it more as he cops a feel of his girlfri
