Time: Backdated to after the thingy with the mirrors

As Sora and Axel reappeared the taller redhead refused to release the brunette from the tight hug. The black coated man smelled strongly like soot and blood and he was softly crying. He'd lost Roxas, lost his life. What more could he lose and still manage to exist this way? No, he couldn't lose Sora. That's all he had now, all he wanted.

Sora stood still listening to Axel's rapid breathing as the redhead clung to him. "A-axel... why are you crying and... what's that smell...?" The smaller male said softly, sounding worried as he tries to look at Axel's face.

The man smelled like sweat and blood. It scared him a bit but he wasn't about to leave Axel. "What happened? Where were you all this time, Axel...?" He said sounding a little sad, he'd been worried for Axel all this time, he wasn't even sure how long he'd been kidnapped and was still a little shaken at suddenly being home.

"I thought I'd lost you... I couldn't.. I couldn't stand the thought of it..." Axel continued to hold Sora, shivering slightly. He nuzzled the smaller boy's hair, his breath ocassionally catching as he cried. "I'd do anything for you. I just didn't realize... How much you meant to me. I'm such a ditz."

Sora's face turned a little pink at all the strange things Axel was saying, he couldn't help but wonder if the man had been drinking but he didn't smell liquor on his roommate's breath. "You mean the kidnapper? Yeah, how'd you find me anyway? And what happened to you? You're bleeding aren't you?"

He frowned before his face blushed harder at the sweet words and feel of Axel nuzzling his hair. "R-really..? Even... after what I said to you...?"
Axel: Expressiontobihi on June 20th, 2007 12:31 am (UTC)
Axel shook his head a little. "I found a letter when I searched for you. It somehow transported me to this weirdass place. I... just got to the end." Axel didn't care to mention how he'd been forced to face his fears of losing Roxas and Sora. Or the fact that he'd ended up taking a bullet for Sora. Even though he couldn't feel the wound now. He was rather sure if he had been shot it would hurt more than this. Axel blinked at the next few questions. It took a moment to sink in. "Ah.. Yeah I'm bleeding... No biggie?" His lip was cut pretty bad. But that had been burned closed. And the rest well... His jacket was on. "And it's not like I didn't run my mouth off either... Just... Not in that way."
paopuboy on June 20th, 2007 12:38 am (UTC)
Sora frowned worried up at the nobody. "No biggie? You look all beat up! What did that lunatic do to you?" He started to feel angry now that he got a look at Axel's face and saw the cut there.

"Come on..." He tried to wiggle out of Axel's grasps to lead him somewhere. "We gotta clean them up! You just can't take good care of yourself can you!" He said trying to sound angry but he was mostly sad that Axel put himself through all this for him and all Sora had done since he'd gotten there was treat Axel badly and yell at him. Cleaning him up and making it better was the least he could do for the man.
Axel: Like I had a Hearttobihi on June 20th, 2007 01:01 am (UTC)
Axel frowned a little as Sora insisted on cleaning him up. "No no. It's alright Sora... I can do it." Axel had no desire to let Sora see the new wounds nor the old ones. "It's not that bad...." Besides it wasn't Sora's capture that had done it. Axel had asked for this pain. And he was regretting it now seeing the worry on Sora's face.

"Don't be so stupid. Come on. You gotta at least get that jacket off, it's just going to open them more..." Sora said reaching up for Axel's zipper. He wanted to help, he wanted to do something to help after all the pain and trouble he'd caused the other man since his arrival.
Axel: Expressiontobihi on June 20th, 2007 01:20 am (UTC)
Axel still tried to squirm away from Sora's advances but ended up twisting wrong, hissing, and holding still for the other. Nope, there was no bullet wound under there. But there was just about everything else. Fine cut marks, whip marks, and oddly enough, burn marks. But just what could burn Axel is unknown. "H-Hey... Cut it out Sora. I said I'd take care of it." The redhead tried to pull his jacket back on.
paopuboy on June 20th, 2007 01:35 am (UTC)
"You're hurt, Axel..." Sora said in a slightly choked voice not understanding why Axel wouldn't let him help. "You can barely move... how are you going to do it on your own?" Usually Axel was pawing for attention, in fact a moment ago he was cling to Sora like some sort of life line now he was doing all he could to get away. "What's with you...? Is it those scars? I don't don't care about those... you showed me them and they don't bother me..."
Axel: Goodnighttobihi on June 20th, 2007 02:42 am (UTC)
Axel stopped at the hurt sound in Sora's voice. He let out a soft sigh and shrugged off that gingerly. "It... Is those scars... I... I don't want you to see them... I don't want to explain them to you. You.. You have no idea how sullied I am. And how I'm afraid if I touch you I'll stain you too."
paopuboy on June 20th, 2007 04:10 am (UTC)
"Then I wont ask..." Sora said looking more sad than confused now. "I don't know all the details but I know it's your past... and your past made you who you are right now... And from the looks of it, it did right by you in that. But I wont ask... and you don't have to touch me. Just let me help." The former keybarer tried to compromise. "You don't have to answer my until you're ready..." He dared to pull the zipper down a little more.
Axel: Be my Saviortobihi on June 20th, 2007 04:26 am (UTC)
Those fresh marks went even lower, disappearing beneath the waist of his pants. Axel wasn't really actively bleeding, but some of those marks weeped with any movement. Axel closed his eyes, not wanting to see Sora's reaction. "You want me to sit down or something so you can reach?"
paopuboy on June 20th, 2007 05:15 am (UTC)
Sora let out a sharp breath but bit back any words doing all he could not to turn away. "Y-yeah... lets go to the bathroom so I can wash them. You have a first aid kit?" The boy asked sounding a little shaken but trying to hard to keep calm and his emotions in check.
Axel: <3tobihi on June 20th, 2007 05:23 am (UTC)
Axel nodded. "Yeah. I'll get it." Axel left his jacket on the floor and went to get the kit. He met up with Sora in the bathroom, perching on the rim of the tub so Sora could reach the wounds. "I'll take care of the stuff on my legs alright? I don't want you to see me entirely nude like that." Axel gave Sora a fake grin. "You're too young for that."
paopuboy on June 20th, 2007 05:33 am (UTC)
Sora tried to offer even a little smile at Axel's attempt to joke as he knelt down in front of the injured man. it was just to hard to when so many questions were running through his mind and the guilt that this was his fault.

"Heh, if you say so." The teen replied softly and poured some disinfectant onto a soft rag before doing his best to gently dab it on the worst cuts.
Axel: Be my Saviortobihi on June 20th, 2007 05:41 am (UTC)
Axel didn't give much reaction to the stinging disinfect, mainly because at this point he was feeling rather immune to pain. In fact he even closed his eyes and seemed to doze off. "You're so gentle.... Not used to that. It's... nice."
paopuboy on June 20th, 2007 08:28 pm (UTC)
Sora stood up again and leaned over to reach Axel's back. "Thanks..." The teen murmured before picking up a bottle of rubbing alcohol. "Though I don't know if you'll feel the same after I do this..." He warned before pouring the clear liquid over his injured roommate's back trying to make sure every open cut got some on it. His free hand moving up to lightly brush Axel's hair aside to keep it from getting wet or into any of the healing cuts.
Axel: Expressiontobihi on June 20th, 2007 08:37 pm (UTC)
Axel's back had numerous whipmarks on it that weeped as Sora poured the liquid over. "Owowowow. You're right. That does hurt ya brat." But an older scar was much more distracting. It was on the back of his neck as Sora brushed that hair aside. It was thick and oddly shaped, Almost like someone had tore their fingers through the flesh. It was also clearly a burn scar, yet underneath their were glimpses of a scar of more surgerical nature. Axel tensed when he felt his hair brushed aside and self conciously moved a hand to try to cover and hide that mark.

"I warned you... Next time you'll be more careful... Still I didn't think that Argentine would take things so far. He seemed... so calm." Sora frowned thoughtfully as he lightly washed the blood off Axel's back and dabbed the cuts. "Then again...he did break into like...hundreds of people's houses to kidnap them." The blue eyes narrowed in anger at how someone could do this to people.

"What's with your hand? something hurt you there?" Sora brushed Axel's hand aside to take a look. A gasps escaping his lips when he saw what was there. "A-Axel..." He nearly whimpered.
Axel: Be my Saviortobihi on June 21st, 2007 04:48 am (UTC)
Axel said nothing about Argentine and what the boy was capable of, but he did quickly check his chest for a bullet hole. He sighed and relaxed somewhat. That hadn't been real. It'd felt like it. If he ever saw that boy again he'd be charcoal. But as Sora commented on his hand and moved it aside Axel tensed up once again and tried to cover it once more.

"It's... An old scar. There's nothing you can do for it Sora..."
paopuboy on June 21st, 2007 05:34 am (UTC)
'You promised him you wouldn't ask...' Sora reminded himself and just gave a mute nod before moving away from Axel to pick up some gauze.

"Okay... hold still and tell me if they're too tight..." He said, trying to keep his tone gentle rather than scared, confused and worried like he felt. Placing his hand on the man's scarred chest he started to slowly wrap his torso.
Axel: Burntobihi on June 21st, 2007 05:46 am (UTC)
Axel stayed still as he was wrapped, not fully relaxing until he could move that hair back down to hide the scar. "He didn't hurt you did he? That kid... If he did I swear I'll... I do something damnit." Axel turned his head to look at Sora with those intense green eyes. Those eyes said so little yet spoke volumes.
paopuboy on June 21st, 2007 06:23 am (UTC)
Sora looked up from what he was doing at the man's eyes and shook his head. "No, other than kidnap me, no. He mostly said weird stuff... and played music for us..." He felt a little bad saying this seeing as how badly hurt Axel was from the encounter yet Sora didn't have a scratch on him.

"I'm sorry for what he did to you... I didn't even have a chance to fight he got me when I was sleeping." His eyes fell unable to understand what Axel was trying to tell him nor did he think he deserved their worry. Instead he continued bandaging and sealing them in place.
Axel: AxelxSoratobihi on June 21st, 2007 06:35 am (UTC)
"Stop being sorry. It wasn't your fault. I left. I wasn't there to protect you. And I nearly lost you because of it." Axel reached out and pulled Sora to his chest, holding the boy as close as he could. "So stupid. I didn't even know what I wanted..." Axel nuzzled Sora's hair again, breathing in his scent. "I can't believe I let you see me... But I'm somehow relieved too.."
paopuboy on June 21st, 2007 07:00 am (UTC)
Sora's face heated when Axel started talking sweetly to him and holding him. "H-hey... no one asked you to protect me. I'm not a baby... even if you call me chibi." He managed to force out a soft laugh.

"What do you mean. What you wanted? What did he d-..." He stopped himself remembering his promise not to ask. "Maybe you should get some rest.. or eat something? You were bleed a lot, you need to get your strength back." He suggested tentatively cautiously resting his his hand on Axel's shoulder and the other on his side not wanting to hurt him.
