Unable to Understand

Chapter one

After all of these years, Zaku was still unable to understand why Dosu had done what he did…

Zaku had felt pain surge through his body as he felt his arms being violently ripped out of place by what at that time, a demon. A demon covered in black marks. A demon that he was supposed to kill but was instead almost killed by him…

Zaku had passed out from the pain; he was unable to do anything…

When Zaku woke up, he was in the tower. He felt so groggy and his arms were still throbbing with pain. Although it was sp painful, Zaku still fought on with courage. He may have even made himself worse off than what he was though, but it wasn't in his nature to give up…

The next thing Zaku knew, he was in a hospital bed back in his home village with Dosu waiting by his side. His eyes fluttered open and as they did, his pupils caught the shape of his fellow sound nin.

"D-Dosu…" Zaku managed to stutter through his weakness.

"Yes Zaku…" Dosu had sprung up and was alert right away. He had been waiting forever and a day for Zaku to wake up.

"D-Dosu d-did you st-stay with m-me all t-this t-t-time?" asked Zaku barely conscious.

"I did…"

Zaku felt a delicate caress brush past his cheek. Dosu had begun caressing Zaku's cold cheek with his palm and fingers.

Zaku relaxed into the touch. In his current state, it was hard for him to tell that this would be an awkward situation for him. Dosu on the other hand was thrilled to see Zaku was okay. Dosu had always loved this boy so much.

By this time, Dosu had rolled down his bandages and was leaning in closer to Zaku, admiring the pure innocence of the boy's face. It was so beautiful.

As Zaku slipped back into reality, he felt something soft against his lips and when he opened his eyes again there he was, Dosu in all his glory, kissing him…

Zaku made a muffled whine.

Dosu pulled up immediately and looked into Zaku's shocked eyes. He then quickly left the room.

Zaku layed there in shock as the image of Dosu's full face, full beautiful face was fresh in his vision.

Zaku was unable to understand why Dosu had done what he did, and Zaku was even more unable to understand why the whole thing made his stomach flutter and his heart beat so fast…
