The blonde stared at the sun, mesmerized by the passing colours, flickering and fluttering in the sky, touching the pair sitting on the tower.
"Bet you don't know why the sun sets red." the red haired man next to him said. He too, was staring. Not at the beautiful sunset, but at something much more beautiful to him and closer.
The blond laughed and turned to face the spiky red head. "What, should I know, Axel?" he said, inquisitively.
Axel's gaze on the blond lingered longer than it should have for friends, for just friends.
Axel turned to the sunset to break the dangerous eye contact and said, a tone softer than before, "You see, the light is made up of many colours. And out of all those colours, red is the one that travels the furthest, Roxas!"
A emotion crossed Roxas's face as Axel turned away, but what was he to know to look?
The emotion was replaced by happiness- half happiness, as Roxas replied, "Like I asked! Know it all." and laughed genuinely, hard work for a Nobody with no heart, enjoying the moment.
They watched the sunset slowly fade as the sun disappeared over the horizon, replacing the colours of light with darkness.
This was the worst part of the day. Axel now had to go back to reality, and realize unpleasant things, like that... he didn't want to think.
Just enjoy the moment, his thoughts scolded him. Just enjoy the moment.
Axel carefully placed his hand near Roxas, a dangerous move considering that they were just friends.
He wanted to be near Roxas, and to protect him always!
Axel sneaked one last look at Roxas.
Just for now, Axel planned, but he'd tell him soon. Soon.
Roxas looked at Axel as he stood up. "It's time to go." Roxas said, getting sad.
He really enjoyed this moments with Axel... he hated reality.
Lately, he had been feeling like- feeling? Roxas shook his head inwardly. Rephrase time. Lately, he had been wanting to be closer to Axel, physically and mentally.
Roxas didn't know what this meant, and when he snuck a moment to ask Demyx (the only one he thought he could ask. All the others were too smart), and explained the feelings Person A had for Person B, Demyx had a faraway look on his face, and told him it sounded like... love.
Roxas needed to ask Axel about that. He would know.
Roxas would ask him soon. Soon.
