Chapter 2: I loved her first

Uchiha Sasuke looked around, and then his dark eyes returned to the place they had originally been. A dark-haired woman was smiling, her arms wrapped around a man with equally dark hair but with blue eyes, while hers were green.

The female was undeniably beautiful. Her glossy black hair was pulled up into a French twist, and there was a tiara atop her head. As she danced with the man, her dress sparkled in the dim light, courtesy of the rhinestones and diamonds that adorned her silken strapless dress. As she moved gracefully, people got peeks of the white shoes underneath. Sasuke could barely believe that this beautiful woman was his daughter, Hana.

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each other's face
So much in love you're alone in this place
Like there's nobody else in the world

Hana smiled, and the man's azure eyes softened affectionately before he leaned down and kissed her forehead softly. Hana's eyes closed in happiness, and she leaned her head on her husbands shoulder, a tiny smile on her face.

I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one she told me so
And she still means the world to me just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything life must go on
And I'm not gonna stand in your way

Sasuke still remembered when she was little, how frail she seemed to him. Now, though, she was this confident, beautiful woman who was more than capable of breaking bones just as fast as she could mend them. However, that doesn't mean that he won't still look back on her as that innocent little girl who used to walk around Konoha with her hand wrapped around his, marveling at the beauty of the world.

I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart
Will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she'd find you someday
But it's still hard to give her away
I loved her first

"Okay, everybody, time for the bride to dance with her father!" The DJ announced, and began to play a sad tune that Sasuke didn't know the name of. Hana headed over, and her ivory arms wrapped around her father. She smiled at him.

"Hi, daddy." He smiled down at her, something he did rarely around others. Hana knew that such an action was rare for her father, but she was his daughter, and it seemed as if her mother and herself were the only people to honestly be able to make him smile.

"Hello, Hana." He greeted back, and they swayed to the music. He glanced over and noticed his daughter's husband watching Hana, a smile playing about his lips. It was clearly obvious that he loved this woman in Sasuke's arms. The dark-haired Uchiha exhaled rather sharply, and Hana raised an eyebrow as her father met her emerald eyes, so similar to her mothers. "Hana, tell me, are you happy?"

"I don't think I've ever been happier." She whispered as a reply, and Sasuke nodded.

"Then as long as you're happy, so am I." A slow smile began to form on Hana's face before it turned into a bright grin, and she leaned up and kissed her father on the cheek.

"Thank you, daddy."

How could that beautiful woman with you
Be the same freckle faced kid that I knew
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw her with you
It was only a matter of time

"Sir?" Uchiha Sasuke looked up from his writing and looked up at Uzumaki Keitaro (A/N- Which means fortunate) and gestured him in. Keitaro entered, looking nervous.

"How can I help you, Keitaro?" Sasuke asked, folding his hands on his desk and watching as his daughter's best-friend-turned-boyfriend fidgeted slightly in his seat.

"Sasuke-sama, I'd like to ask for Hana-chan's hand in marriage." Sasuke sighed, and glanced down at his hands. Of course he knew that this day would happen, but that didn't mean that he was necessarily prepared for it. Then again, Keitaro and Hana had been dating for five years, and he should've expected that sooner (rather than later, later being what Sasuke had mentally prayed for) the blue-eyed man would've proposed.

"Keitaro… if I had to choose anyone to marry Hana, I'm glad that it's you." Keitaro smiled. He knew that Sasuke was accepting it, and in the stoic Uchiha's words, that was as close to a yes as he was probably going to ever get.

"Thank you, Sasuke-sama." Keitaro said, and in a gesture of boldness, stuck out his hand. Sasuke smirked and reached across the table, where the two of them shook hands. Keitaro stood up, shoving his hands in his pocket. The onyx-eyed male noticed something sharp, like a corner, protruding from the pants. Quite obviously, it was a small box. A small velvet box that would forever change his daughter's life. Keitaro smiled nervously and headed out the door.

"Oh, and Keitaro?" The charcoal-haired man paused and glanced back at his future father-in-law. Sasuke was looking oddly determined. "Take care of my baby girl." Keitaro nodded.

"I will, sir. I will." As he left, Sasuke could only feel relief. He wasn't joking when he said that he was glad it was to be his best friends son marrying Hana.

I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart
Will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she'd find you someday
But it's still hard to give her away
I loved her first

The song ended, and Hana pulled back. "I love you, daddy." She told him, and Sasuke smiled slightly.

"I love you too, Hana. Now, I believe Keitaro is waiting for you." He said, pointing over at the dark-haired man. She glanced up at her father, green eyes bright with happiness.

"Was it hard, dad? To walk me down the aisle and know you were giving me up?"

"Harder than you'd ever believe." He told her, and kissed her on the forehead. "Now go, he's been patient."

"Dad?"

"Aa."

"Thank you." Hana smiled up at the man who had, at one time, been her knight in shining armor. She would always be Sasuke's princess, but now, she was Keitaro's damsel-in-distress.

From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I'm going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
I loved her first

"Hey there handsome." A pink-haired female whispered, coming over and placing her arms around his broad shoulders. Sasuke smirked, his arms wrapping around the woman's petite torso.

"Hey yourself." Sakura smiled, and snuggled her head into the crook between his neck and his shoulder.

"Are you upset about Hana getting married?" She asked her husband, and Sasuke snorted.

"No."

"And that, sweetheart, is what we call denial." If Sasuke could have, he would've glared at his wife.

"I'm not in denial." He protested. "After all, even though I would've liked for her to never grow up and for me to always be the man she was going to marry, little girls must grow up. Besides, I trust Keitaro." Sakura kissed his neck.

"That and the fact that you now have Reina." She murmured, and Sasuke chuckled.

"That's true too." Sasuke mused, and looked over at his youngest daughter. Uchiha Reina was… wait, where was she? Sasuke growled, and his eyes scanned the room for an obsidian-eyed, onyx-haired female. He finally spotted her leaning against the wall and talking to a boy. They were a bit too close for comfort for Sasuke, and he hastily excused himself from Sakura, smirking as he made his way over to Reina.

Hey, just because he allowed one of his daughters to marry doesn't mean he'll allow the other one.

A/N- To be honest, I never really wanted to make another chapter to this, but then I heard this song, and it was too good to pass up XD. Okay, the song is I loved her first, and it's sung by Heartland. If you've never heard the song, I highly suggest that you do listen to it, because it's absolutely sweet, and if I didn't already have out my Father-Daughter dance for my wedding (Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle, another song I recommend) then this would definitely be it. Anyway, I hope you liked it. So do you wanna review and tell me what you thought of it?
