Hair Dye

Chapter Text

One night at The Castle that Never Was, everyone was asleep, except for Demyx. He was quietly walking through the castle, making sure he didn't make any loud noises. In one of his hands, there was a bag full of bottles of hair dye. There was a variety of colors, and Demyx planned to use them all.

Demyx soon stood in front of Axel's room. He carefully opened the door and stepped inside. He saw Axel sleeping on the bed. Demyx chuckled as he pulled out one of the bottles of hair dye. He slowly walked over to Axel and opened up the hair dye and began his little prank.

The next day Axel woke up, got out of bed, and walked to the bathroom that was connected to his room. Groggily Axel turned on the lights and walked over to the sink. He stared at himself tiredly for a moment before waking up to shock and giving out a yell.

"What the hell is this?!" Axel said as he looked at his reflection.

Something wasn't right with his hair, it wasn't his usually bright red. Somehow his hair was now a sky blue! Axel turned on the sink and started splashing water on his head, trying to wash it off, but nothing happened. He went to the shower and put a lot of soap in his hair and scrubbed it like crazy. After washing out the soap and drying his hair he went back to the mirror to check his hair. But nothing had changed. His hair was still that sky blue.

"When I find out who did this…” Axel grumbled angrily to himself. "Oh they better hope I don't find them… or they will be in pain."

Axel stood in front of his door, he didn't want to head out into the Grey Room and have everyone see him. He knew they would probably laugh at him. He didn't want to be laughed at...he would be mocked for a long time. So Axel put up his hood and headed out of his room.

Axel entered the Grey Room, the only ones in the room were Saix, Demyx, Luxord, and Larxene. Saix was standing at his usual spot and the others were on the couches. Axel then walked up to Saix, but before Axel could say anything Saix spoke first.

"Axel, why is your hood up?" Saix asked.

"Uh… no reason," Axel said trying to avoid the conversation.

Saix gave Axel a serious, emotionless face. "You're hiding something."

Axel shook his head. "No… No I'm not."

Saix continued to stare at Axel, not believing him. At this moment the other organization members in the room were looking at Axel. He would keep denying it, until the blue in his hair finally faded. But Axel didn't know how long that would take. Larxene was suspicious of Axel, so she had snuck up behind Axel and pulled his hood off from.

Then there was silence. All four org members were staring at Axel's new blue hair. Axel lowered his head, feeling slightly embarrassed. After that moment of silence Larxene started to chuckle, and soon Luxord also started to chuckled. Demyx start to laugh and Saix actually had a smirk on his face.

"Stop it!" Axel shouted. "It's not funny!" He turned around and faced Larxene. "Did you do this to my hair?!"

Larxene shook her head. "As funny as this is. I didn't dye your hair."

Axel then asked Luxord, who also said he didn't dye Axel's hair. And both Demyx and Saix also said didn't either. But Axel didn't believe any of them. "I know someone in this castle did it. And I'm going to find out who did it," Axel said before storming off out of the Grey Room. Saix watched Axel leave and let out one small laugh, thinking about how ridiculous he looked.

As Axel walked back to his room he ran into Roxas and Xion. Both of them stared wide-eyed at Axel. "Uh...Axel...what did you do to your hair?" Roxas asked.

"You look really different," Xion added.

Axel grumbled. "It's none of your business." Axel said before walking past Roxas and Xion. Roxas and Xion looked at Axel as he walked over, then they looked at each other and shrugged, not knowing how to react to what had just happened.

Axel walked back to his room, and thankfully didn't run into any other members. Axel walked into his room and lied down on the bed. He still couldn't believe that someone had dyed his hair. Axel ran his hand through his hair. He looked so different and so weird with blue hair, it didn't suit him at all. Axel also thought how odd it would look when would use his fire attack, his blue hair would just seem out of place. He hated it but he knew everyone was going to laugh at him and mock him. He knew he wouldn't hear the end of this. He knew he had to find out who did this and make them pay. But little did Axel know, he wasn't the only one who would be laughed at… there soon would he others.
