It`s the middle of the night, but I still can`t sleep. I`ve been so restless, lately, and I know why. I sit up in my bed and look at my bedside table, and there I see it. It`s the thing that's been so painful to look at lately, the object that`s so full of memories.
It`s the picture that we took a long time ago, when Naruto, Sasuke, and I were Team 7. I looked so happy and peaceful. I remember how I felt, then, too: everything was nearly perfect. Naruto and Sasuke cared for me, just as I cared for them. We did everything together, not just missions. We had an amazing friendship. We had Sasuke, then.
Things are so different, now. Naruto and I still care for each other, but we wonder whether Sasuke still cares about us. Deep down, I think he remembers everything, but his memories are clouded with thoughts of revenge. I wish he`d never taken that path. Back then, on that day when he left the village, he said he had to take that path, because he was an avenger. But he was wrong. He didn`t have to take that path. All that path lead to was more revenge, and like I told him, that doesn`t make anyone happy. I wish I could have saved him that day.
It`s true, though, I do have Naruto. He`s always been there for me, and he`s going to keep being there. In fact, I`m even starting to have feelings for him.
But I haven`t forgotten Sasuke. I never will. He`s always going to cling to my heart. He`s always going to be my first love. He`s unforgettable. And when Naruto and I rescue him and bring him back to the village, I may be the happiest I`ve ever been. Every night, lately, I`ve been thinking about him even more than usual. I wonder if he gives us even a passing thought. Naruto and I have been thinking of him, though, so I know he`s out there somewhere, thinking of us, even if it`s just a little thought. I also know we`re going to rescue him soon, or he`s going to come here. Because, like Naruto said, " Home is where someone thinks of you". Konoha is Sasuke`s home. I know he`s going to come back, someday.
When he does, I don`t know what I`ll do, really. All I know is, then Team 7 will be whole, again. After all this time, that`s still my wish of a lifetime.
