Author's Notes: I am now totally into this pairing. It's so kawaii to write about, and this is a completely random drabble I did in like, five minutes. I did a quick spell check but my 'dot' key is broken and I have to press extra hard. Sorry for any mistakes.

Suigetsu couldn't believe it. Even after everything that he had told her, she still went back to Sasuke? Even when Sasuke was in love with someone else? Couldn't she see that? Was she too naïve, or did she just like hurting people endlessly?
He had watched her from years, ever since she was a little girl. Remembered when she cried into his arm, because she needed glasses and was terrified at the thought of people teasing her. Listened to her when she ran her mouth off about how she liked Uchiha Sasuke—the most egotistical guy in their school. Comforted her when she wailed that Sasuke had gotten himself a girlfriend.
Suigetsu sighed and stared at his feet. He also watched when he told her that he loved her, watched as her face crumbled up in confusion. Watched she she bit her lip and avert her breathtaking crimson eyes. Watched as she exclaimed that he couldn't love her. Watched as she ran away from him.
And back to Sasuke.
Suigetsu thought it would be the end of her fangirling when Sasuke had gotten himself a girlfriend.
Karin just didn't get it, did she?
Sasuke didn't want her, yet she still ran towards him.
He wanted her (so much) and yet, she ran away from him.
It was raining, and he was walking down the street with his hands in his pockets.
Suddenly, the rain stopped and he turned around, and there was Karin.
She smiled at him and he almost flinched. "Hi." she whispered, blushing a bit.
Suigetsu shrugged in response. Karin shuffled slightly. "Just because you like the rain so much, doesn't mean you need to be drowning in it." she stated softly. She stepped closer to him, so that they were both under Karin's large red and black umbrella that resembled a lady bug.
"I... would've thought that you would shelter Sasuke from the rain, instead of me."
Karin gave off a smile. "He has Sakura to do that, though."
Suigetsu rose an eyebrow. "I don't understand. I thought you hated Sakura, because she's Sasuke's girlfriend."
"I did hate her, because Sasuke liked her, and not me. Sasuke told me though, that you shouldn't chase fake dreams."
"So chasing Sasuke was a fake dream?"
"Yeah. It confused me, though. I guess, after liking him for so long, it because a game, to see if I could actually win. Now that I think about it, I don't know how I would've felt if Sasuke had returned my feelings. I doubt I would've felt the same."
Suigetsu scowled a bit. "It's not nice to play with people, Karin."
Karin was quiet for a moment. "I know. That's why I'm here, because it isn't nice to play with people..."
She looked up at him, her cheeks flushed. "You love me."
Suigetsu found heat spreading across his cheeks. "Well.... uh, yeah—!"
Karin stood on her tip-toes and pressed a sweet kiss onto his mouth. Before he could have time to kiss her back, she pulled away and the taste of cinnamon was left on his lips. "Why should I chase something fake when I have the real thing, right in front of me?"
Suigetsu opened his mouth to say something but Karin kissed him again, and this time he kissed her back with passion.
It was still raining and many people around him were getting wet, and as his hand wandered to Karin's flaming red hair, molding his mouth with hers more fervently, he knew they weren't sheltered.
But he was.
Author's Notes: Cheesy ending, but I'm a sucker for happy-ever-afters. Might post an epilogue or a sequel, if I get enough ideas :)
