[They had been friends for a really long time. Roxas was smart enough to recognize that, and Roxas knew that his relationship with Naoto was different than his relationship with Xion or Axel. He couldn't really put a finger on what it was that made the girl different, but he knew it was something deeper than he could really, fully understand.
It wasn't uncommon for the detective-girl to come to his house to put their heads together regarding some new mystery or another. It wasn't uncommon for them to read books together in silence or trade notes. Hell, it wasn't even uncommon for her just to come over and have fun with him and Nea, but those were more rare occasions than the other two.
It was late. He wasn't sure what time it was, but it was definitely dark out and Naoto had fallen asleep on top of her notes. Roxas wasn't sure if it was on purpose or on accident, but he wasn't going to wake her up just yet. Instead he settled back and monitored her closely. It wasn't any different than the times he'd held vigil over his other friends, especially during the reign of terror Vanitas brought upon them. But this...was much more calm.
He just didn't have any idea how he was going to explain it to her if she woke up and found him staring at her. Oh well. Maybe he wouldn't have to deal with it for a while longer.]
