He's a pain in the neck, he's my rival but what's this feeling that makes my stomach churn?

He's so annoying, he's so loud, he's so obnoxious.

He's determined, he improves, somehow he manages to match me.

I can't pinpoint this feeling…

Naruto Uzumaki, you puzzle me…

What is this feeling that I get when I think of you? An avenger like me is not supposed to feel like this…

It's not a bad feeling, but for me it is… why? Why do I feel happy? I'm not supposed to be happy…

Looking at your grin… knowing that it takes a lot of effort for you to smile like that. You share my pain don't you? You're alone like me after all… but I'm back to that feeling…

I call you a loser, an idiot, a coward… but do I really mean them? Now that I think about it… I don't… but then why?

This feeling that I feel… it's becoming clear but no… I can't…not for anyone… not for a boy… not for him… I'm an avenger! I can't be like this!

Naruto… my pain, my rival, my… love?
