DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE
When they parted, Natsuri smiled gently but was hurting inside. She couldn't find the courage to look Gaara in the eyes or she might start crying. (A/N: GAARA YOU IDIOT!!! Gaara: Hey! You wrote it!!! A/N Oh right…heehee)
"I-I gotta go Gaara…" Natsuri said and ran back in the direction of the house.
"W-Wait Natsuri! I didn't mean to-" Gaara cried but it was too late. Natsuri couldn't hear him anymore. Deciding that he would run after her, Gaara gathered some chakra in his feet and followed. Unfortunately for him, he met Neji and Tenten along the way and was stopped by the lavender-eyed Hyuuga.
"What the hell did you do!?" Neji asked angrily, getting into his fighting stance. "I just saw Natsuri crying."
"C-Chotto Neji!" Tenten said, trying to hold him back.
"Shut up and get out of my way, Hyuuga Neji." Gaara spat dangerously.
"Just what the hell did you do!?!? She doesn't cry for no reason!" Neji glared and Gaara glared back. Uh-oh this is not good…not good at all.
"MOVE!" Gaara yelled as sand start flowing out of his gourd.
"Come." Neji said calmly.
"Neji no!" Tenten cried, clinging on to his arm.
"Tenten. Get. Out. Of. My. Way."
"Neji! Gaara-san!" Tenten yelled.
"Hn." Gaara said as the sand turned into a sharp shape and charged at Neji. Neji dodged and pushed Tenten out of the way. Getting into his Jukken stance, he aimed at Gaara's heart.
Just then, there was a puff of smoke and out came Hinata and Naruto. Hinata used her own Jukken to stop Neji's and Naruto used Kage Bunshin and stopped Gaara's sand.
"Stop it you two! What happened?" Naruto asked. "Tenten you okay?"
"Aa. We saw Natsuri-chan crying and they start fighting!" Tenten explained.
"This bastard made her cry! I've never seen Natsuri cry." Neji spat.
"Neji-niisan! Please calm down!" Hinata begged.
"Neji!" Tenten yelled as well, holding his arm.
"Fine." Neji said and shook her off but still glaring at Gaara. Gaara was angry as well.
"Move Naruto." He said calmly.
"What are you gonna do?" Naruto asked.
"Find Natsuri. Move."
"A-Aa…" Naruto said and let Gaara pass. As he passed Neji, they exchanged a dangerous glare, causing the girls to shiver.
Meanwhile, Natsuri slammed her bedroom door and sobbed on her bed. Punching her pillow, she screamed about Gaara being a total idiot. After she calmed herself, she fell asleep on her tear stained bed. Soon, there was a knock at the door.
"Natsuri? Natsuri?" Came a deep gentle voice. But there were no answers.
"Natsuri, it's me." Gaara said softly.
Gaara got worried and tried to open the door. Turning the handle, he was surprised to find the door unlocked. He quickly made his way in to see Natsuri, curled into a small ball with a tear stained face, sleeping soundly. He silently sat on her bed and wiped away the tears with his thumb.
"Sumanai Natsuri." (Sorry) Gaara murmured. The red haired sand ninja then accompanied Natsuri until she woke up.
-Some time later-
Natsuri softly opened her eyes to see the boy she love sitting next to her bed with a hand rested on her head. Seeing Gaara was asleep, Natsuri carefully removed his hand and left a note before she left.
Thank you for being here to comfort me. I'm fine now, please don't come find me, I'll come back later. Take care.
Natsuri ran and ran mindlessly until her legs got sore. She sat down by a Sakura tree and stared up at the sky. From the color of the sky it was probably around 5:00 o' clock. Since she ran for so long, she was freezing, thirsty, and tired. Tiredly, she dragged herself to the nearest café. As she entered, she saw Temari and Kankuro sitting there, having hot chocolate.
"Ah! Natsuri-chan!" Kankuro called out.
"Hey." Natsuri said quietly, which was very unlike herself. You can't blame her now, can you?
"What's wrong?" Temari asked, standing up.
Natsuri immediately ran forward and hugged Temari, which surprised the blond. She was even more surprised when Natsuri start sobbing.
"Natsuri-chan? What's wrong?" Temari asked again, patting her back.
"Gaara…" was all she could get out.
"What!? Did he hurt you?" Kankuro asked worriedly. "What happened?"
"Friend…only…friend…" was all they two siblings can make out for Natsuri was talking through sobs. But Temari understood what she was trying to say and embraced her.
-A few minutes later-
"Thanks Temari, Kankuro." Natsuri said thankfully.
"But Natsuri-chan, you need to understand that Gaara has never been loved and he didn't know what to say. So you'll have to forgive him. Mk?"
"She's right you know, Natsuri-chan."
Everyone came back to Temari's house to celebrate this wonderful day, wishing their friends a merry Christmas and a happy year. All except for a girl, sulking on the roof while gazing up at the brightest star.
"Natsuri." A voice called out from behind her, causing her to jump a bit.
"Gaara…" Natsuri murmured quietly.
"Do you know where you are!?" He said a bit loudly.
"A-Ah sorry! I guess I'm on your spot ne? I'll move." Natsuri said and got up. She was about to leave when Gaara grabbed her wrist.
"Where are you going? I never said you were on my spot." The red head said gently.
"Eh?!" Natsuri asked, utterly confused.
"I'll ask again, do you know where you are?" Gaara asked, this time softer. Natsuri shook her head no.
"You know…" Gaara began, sitting on the roof. "Temari told me…that I should say what I want to say and don't hold back."
"Oh." Natsuri said, expecting a 'you're not more than a friend to me.'
"That…you are…always in my mind ever since I met you…and…"
Natsuri's eyes widened.
"…that…you're always in my heart…" Gaara said monotonously, look up at the sky. Natsuri blushed madly.
"So…" Gaara began, he was expecting Natsuri to say 'well not me' or something like that. No one would love a demon right? I mean…he's not good looking like Sasuke, not fun like Naruto, not cool like Neji, not outgoing like Kiba. He's just a quiet and cold person.
"Aishiteru Gaara." Natsuri said meekly.
"Aishiteru." Natsuri repeated louder and ran over to give Gaara a big hug. "Gaara! Aishiteru!"
"Natsuri!" Gaara said, surprised. Then slowly, his arms snaked around Natsuri's back in a warm, loving embrace.
"Me too." Said Gaara shyly. Natsuri looked up at him.
"Really?" She said with big, I mean BIG eyes.
"Gaara! WAHHH!!!" Natsuri cried in happiness and shook from excitement.
Gaara smiled. This is the greatest gift I've ever gotten.
Natsuri jumped up and lean in. Gaara understood her message and the two shared a passionate and sweet kiss that they've longed for for a long time. They both blushed madly in each other's arms.
"Ne Gaara?" Natsuri asked timidly.
"Hai Natsuri…chan?" Gaara replied gently which made the brown haired girl giggle.
"Do YOU know where you are?"
