Pairing: Kabuto x Shizune
Summary: Two arch enemies are trying to hold onto something they can't and will never have. Desire, hatred, lust and love intertwines them. However, is a glimpse of the unattainable enough to risk everything?
I don't, don't care if it's not right
To have your arms around me
I want to feel what it's like
Take all of you inside of me
I know that you're no good for me
That's why I feel I must confess
What's wrong is why it feels so right
I want to feel your sweet caress
Forbidden Love (Madonna)
It was raining. The sky was roaring like never before and lighting struck the swaying trees, making them hit the ground the second they made contact. In the midst of all this chaos, two lovers were experiencing the cruel thing called reality. Trying to comfort each other, afraid of letting go…
Sprawled over the mud, a battered black-haired woman caressed the bloodied, silver locks of the man lying on her lap. Her tears falling in the same rhythm as the droplets of water falling from the sky.
"Don't you e-even dare to die on me!" She whispered, fear evident in her soft voice.
The man tried to crack a smile, but his attempt went in vain as he started to cough up blood. The woman supported his head preventing him from choking. When his coughing fit slowed down and finally stopped, she found the courage to rest his head onto her lap once again.
"Kabuto..." She spoke worriedly.
He opened his eyes and stared at the beautiful black ones above him.
"S-Shizune, c-rying d-doesn't su-uit you, y-you kn-now." He forced out of his torn lips.
It made her cry even harder. With much effort he slowly raised his shaking hand and touched her face.
"You idiot!" She cried. "Don't talk! Don't move! You're making it worse! You're, you're...- "
She didn't finish that sentence. She simply couldn't. Every sentence hurt, every look clenched her heart and every touch made her feel ashamed of herself. How could something like this which felt so right, be wrong? How could she possibly leave him to die? She knew she had to, but hadn't the heart. Why was she so weak? Why was she letting down her village, her friends and family… but most of all, her sensei? She pushed those thoughts away. Kabuto needed her now, and she wouldn't let him down.
"Shizune." He breathed softly with difficulty. "I-I have one m-more favour to as-sk of y-you."
Shizune bowed down to hear his last request.
"T-tell me our stor-ry, I-I want to die h-here… i-in your arm-ms."
Her eyes slightly widened as her heart started to bleed inside. Staring into his black orbs, she knew now; I love him.
She kissed his forehead and straightened her posture again. Encouraged by the little ray of sunlight which hit them both as it peeked out from behind the clouds, she started to tell him their story…
A story full of rage, hatred, fear, darkness and light, hope, lust and love.
But most of all; a story full with forbidden desires….
A story of two traitors.
A/N: Wow.. This is my first time writing such a depressing story.. I hope I'm managing some how. Just wanted to say that I'm writing a LOT of other stories, so there might be a chance that I'm not gonna update regularly. But when I start a fic, I'm planning on finishing it, so I will definitely be posting the next chaps.
Anyways, Fire and Sand, this is for you..!
Thanx for reading and lemme know what cha think..!
A/N (3 years later, 22th of December 2009): Well, I must say- this is quite dramatic. A little bit too much, maybe... but then again I didn't feel like changing it. It's cute! Anyhow, it's been a while since then, so I just want to warn you about my style; it's changed.. :))
