Here without you

Slice, stroke. Every gash and cut made it's mark, every fist hit it's mark, and every jutsu did it's job. The result was a battle won and a victory for Konoha.

Wearily the men returned to their camps, every man collapsing into a fitful sleep. Every man dreaming of their special someone's; wives, children, or friends. Hatake Kakashi was one one of them but he dreamed of one person, he dreamed of HER.

'A hundred days have made me older

Since the last time that I saw your pretty face

A thousand lies have made me colder

And I don't think I can look at things the same

Oh yea, yea.'

"OI! KAKASHI!" Genma kicked him. "WAKE UP! WE'RE LEAVING!" Genma growled. Kakashi grunted and began to pack. In less than 6 minutes everything was packed in his bag but a picture. He put that in his vest pocket, right above his heart. He sighed and looked up at the falling leaves thinking about how he missed her.

'I'm here without you baby

But your still on my lonely mind

I think about you baby, and I dream about you all the time

I'm here without you baby

But your still with me in my dreams

And tonight girl, it's only you and me.'

Kakashi walked down the dusty road to Konoha at a steady pace. Around him some men talked, others kept up their guards. He just looked ahead, counting the steps until he'd be home.

' These miles just keep going

The people say to wait but I'm gone

They say this life in overrated

But I hope that things get better as we go

Oh yea, yea.'

His eyes wavered till the sound of a twig snap caught his attention. Just as he was turning a sound ninja sprung from the trees. Sasuke..

The hand on his kunai shook as he watched HIS former student take into his seal form. The aura around him licked the ground around him. Kakashi shook, desperately trying to seek comfort in his angel, his happiness. Slowly he relaxed and the Makenkyo (think I spelt that wrong, sry) Sharingan emerged.

' I'm here without you baby

But your still on my lonely mind

I'm here without you baby

But your still with me in my sreams

And tonight, it's only you an me'

Sasuke's eyes glowed, immediately Kakashi recognized that this wasn't Sasuke. This was Orochimaru in Sasuke's body. His heart clenched as the knowledge seeped in. Sasuke was gone, as good as dead. And in his place was the monster called Orochimaru. The same monster that cost everyone so much.

Kakashi's fists clenched and body hunched. He was going to kill the bastard who caused so much pain and sorrow. Dodging quickly a kunai Kakashi summoned his hounds.

Snakes crawled around the hounds and crawled to grip Kakashi when none other than the great Manda (a summoning snake) blocked the way. Orochimaru gasped, Kakashi squinted. Just for a moment as Manda disappeared Kakashi saw Sasuke's chakra. Blossums passed by in the wind, Kakashi understood. It was time for Orochimaru to die. In his hands he formed bolts of blue and charges. "RAIKIRI!"

'When the last one falls

When it's all said and done..'

Orochimaru stood gasping, blood choke him and seeped from his mouth and from the whole that was now in his gut. Kakashi stood in front of him, hands dripping with electric blue chakra and Oorochimaru's blood. And for just one moment Kakashi saw Sasuke, smiling. Behind Sasuke stood the entire Uchiha clan, waiting. Just before Sasuke walked to them he pointed to a cherry blossom and murmured, "Sorry.." The he turned and disappeared home. Tears misted in Kakashi's eyes. For comfort he gripped the pocket where the picture lay.

'It gets hard but it can't

Take away my love.'

Kakashi picked up a blossom and clenched it in his eyes. Turning to the stoic men behind him (Genma being one of them.) who had watched the scene without moving he nodded and turned.

Pushing Chakra into his legs he ran through the forest into Konoha. Tears began to leak out and overwhelm slightly. Just like Obito, Rin, and Yondaime- sensai… a team mate was gone. And now he needed HER.

'I'm here without you baby

But your still on my lonely mind

I think about you baby

And I dream about you all the time

I'm here without you baby

But your still with me in my dreams

And tonight, it's only you and me, yea..'

Running through Konoha he threw open the door of his homeand yanked off his mask. "SAKURA!"

"Kakashi?" Sakura came out of in a white Yukata, their three month hear old infant in her arms. "Your back?" She smiled. "Thank goodness." She walked over. Kakashi cleared the distance in a flash and wrapped his arms around her, careful not to squash their infant.

' And tonight… it's only you and me..'

"He says sorry…. Sasuke says he's sorry…. He's in peace now.." Kakashi spoke softly.

Sakura nodded, tears falling down her face. "Good… finally.. ALL of team 7 can be happy…."

Kakashi nodded and held her just a LITTLE tighter. The baby sighed, the parents smiled tearfully. Together with the baby they walked to bed.
