The biggest blow to their life together is hurricane KatrinaGenre:
They were fortunate enough that Roxas had a spare room in his apartment a few states up north, and Axel and Saïx stayed quietly to themselves, hidden in that spare room while the hurricane completely ransacked New Orleans.
The reports on the news should have prepared them for what they would find when they finally made the drive back home, finding the house that they’d worked so hard for, reduced to a pile of splinters in knee-deep water.
Axel sighed and ran a hand through his hair, as he stood in the middle of where their living room once stood, the water soaking his pants up to his thighs. Saïx was silent.
“Well,” Axel began. “I guess we’d better see if there’s anything salvageable.” And he began by picking up a soggy… something
from a splintered shelf. Saïx sighed and joined Axel, as they sorted through their ruined livelihood.
