She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night
Me and Zexion had been going out for 2 and a half years now. Ha, and the Superior said nobody could have emotions. One day, Zexion had to leave for a week on a mission. We said our goodbyes, and he was off. Three days later I was upset not being in his presence, and eventually bad things happened. One day Demyx and I were in my room and he was on top of me. The door creaked open and I pushed him off me to see a very upset Zexion in the door way. Tears were streaming down his face and were brimming my eyes. Then he vanished into a portal.
Then Demyx was gone too.
He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby
Nobody had seen Zexion for a while, about a week. He started coming out of his room, but something was different about him. He stumbled past Axel who stopped him.
"Dude, whats the matter? Nobody's seen you for days."
"I-....I don't wanna see her anymore."
"Woah dude. Slow down with the alcohol."
"Axel, I can't. I was gonna-."
Zexion sat down on the floor and took a swig from the bottle.
"I came back and was going to propose to her, and when I opened the door-"
Tears were flowing freely down his face and Axel just stared at him, knowing what was coming next, and tears were brimming his eyes too.
"I-- Demyx was on top of her, man! I didn't know what to do. I-- I can't take it. I hear her cry every night. I left her by herself, man. And she was so upset. And I just can't believe it."
He threw the bottle and it crashed into the floor, the liquid tainting the white tile floor and seeping between the tile cracks, the glass bottle pieces skidding across the hall. He put his face in his hands andd broke down. Axel just stared for a minute, tears streaming down his face for his heart broken friend, then reacted. He knelt on the floor and picked Zexion up.
"Im gonna bring you back to your room. Dont do anything drastic."
All Zexion could do was nod. Axel set him on his bed and walked to the door.
"Im really sorry man. Ill check on you later."
And with that he walked away the door shutting behind him. Zexion could hear her screaming and crying as she slit across her arms. He got up from his bed and grabbed a new bottle of whiskey. He popped off the top and downed half of the bottle. He turned on the light and came face to face with a picture of him and her, kissing. Just before the day he left. He decided that was it. That was the last straw. He still loved her. And she still loved him. He downed the rest of the whiskey and took the picture out of the frame, sticking it carefully in his pocket. He walked out into the hall and a few paces left and knocked on the thick white wood. She wiped away her tears and stared at the door through the darkness. She rose from her spot on the bed, opening the door a crack, silvery purple hair coming into her vision. She immediately fell to her knees and cried. He knelt down and lifted her chin. She could smell the alcohol on his breath.
"I just need..... one last kiss."
She looked up at his and he pressed his chapped lips to hers. Tears streamed down her face as she shut her eyes tightly and kissed back. He got up to his feet with some difficulty, and looked at her. She looked up into his eyes.
"Goodbye, Amayax. I've always loved you. And I always will."
She stared at him wide eyed.
"Zexion, no, please don't! You can't. Please don't do this to me!"
"Amaya. I have to. I can't take it anymore."
He placed a small black box on her thigh and walked to his room. She opened the box and cried more as she saw a small sparkling stone set in a golden ring. She tried to get up, but didnt have enough strength.
She heard a bottle smash and she cried out in despair. She needed to get up.
Zexion walked back to his room and into the conjoined bathroom. He dumped pleanty of pills, any pills, into the large whiskey bottle. There was no way he could continue without her. He drank the bottle and all the pills with it. He started thrashing and broke the bottle against the wall. He heard Amayax scream and had the sudden urge to stop, but it was already too late.
Amayax heard footsteps getting closer and closer and say a flash of red go by and a blond boy sat next to her. Roxas. He helped her stand up and the box fell from her lap. She was screaming and crying.
"Please just go save Zexy!"
Axel ran into Zexions room to see him trashing around with the broken bottle in his hand, red tainting the white carpet.
"Zexion, no! Please don't do this! Don't you see what you're doing to me! To Amayax!"
Axel was wrestling with Zexion to get the bottle. Tears were streaming down his face as he thought to himself.
'Theres no hope. I wont be able to get the bottle from him!"
Zexion pulled back with the bottle and stop thrashing. He looked at the sharp edges and then at Axel.
It seemed in slow motion as Zexions hand brough the bottle closer and closer to his body.
"Zexion, no! You can't do this!"
The bottle thrust into Zexions stomach then he forcefully pulled it out and started stabbing his forearms and his thighs. His screams were getting louder and the blood was pouring faster. Axel was screaming and crying trying to get his best friend to stop.
Roxas was holding Amayax, rocking her back and forth with his hands over her ears, trying to calm her down. She could still hear everything. He was driving her to insanity. She was screaming, begging Zexion to stop.
All Zexion could hear was Axel and Amayax. But he couldnt stop. He wouldn't until he was dead. His grip loosed on the bottle, but he used some of the rest of his energy to stab himself, where his heart was. He dropped the bottle and Axel was screaming and crying.
"Why?! Why Zexion?! You loved her! Look at what youre doing to us!"
He pulled the picture out of his pocket and stuck it on the blood over the wound on his chest. He fell onto the bed and the blood tainted the purple sheets turning it to an evil black. He cried out with his last breath,
"Im sorry Axel, Amayax. I will always love you. Always. And I will wait for you. I'll..... Ill be wai-"
And then he went limp.
Axel fell to the floor crying and Amayax wept into Roxas' shoulder.
The rumors flew but nobody know how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
Until the night
She did nothing but lay stay in Zexions room. Laying on his blood stained floor. Drinking whiskey. She knew this was all her fault. She did this to him. She always thought about him. Thought about that day. He was going to propose to her. They would be together, something beautiful together. But she went and ******** it all up. She wore the ring around her ring finger on her left hand. That was the only thing she needed. That and the whiskey. She clenched the blood stained picture and the note he left her, 'I love you Amayax, and I always will.'
She lied on the floor, dumping the whiskey down her throat. She had cuts all over her arms and legs. Whiskey was pouring out the side of her mouth down her face.
She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby
A few years later, Axel and Roxas came to check up on her like they did every other day. Axel screamed and Roxas started crying and ran over to her body. Axel ran over to her and lifted her body. Whiskey poured out of her mouth. She drowned herself. Roxas screamed.
"Why?! Why did all of this have to happen!? Why..."
He stood up and punched a wall and a hole blew through.
"Roxas, we need to bury her with him."
"Shouldnt we tell everyone else?"
"We will. But we need to bury her with him. What if.... what if her is really waiting for her?"
"Everything will be better for the two of them. Thats all they wanted."
They buried her body with his. Axel and Roxas both believed that he would be waiting for her. And that they would be happy, together in heaven.
Zexion was sitting in a chair crying. He never forgot about her. He heard footsteps and looked up to see a shadow under his door. The door creaked open to reaveal a girl with shoulder length black hair and deep blue eyes.
"Zexion.... I missed you."
He got up and wrapped his arms around her in a tight embrace. She wrapped her arms around his neck and cried into his shoulder.
"Ive been waiting for you.... I didnt know you would be here so early."
"I drowned myself. I couldnt handle it anymore. I wish I could thank Axel and Roxas."
They both looked down onto the World that Never Was, to see Roxas and Axel sitting by where they were buried. Zexion intertwined his fingers with Amayax's and looked back down on the two teenage boys. They smiled seeing the two look up to the sky smiling, knowing everything was okay again.
