His Only Love: Sasuke's Redemption.

Sasuke took in a deep breathe as he knocked on the door of his boyfriends apartment. God, I hope he's home.

He waited for a couple seconds then heard some shuffling inside. The door opened slightly and Naruto soon peeked his head out from behind the door. "hmm? Sasuke? Why'd you come here?" he asked looking just a little groggy.

"I ...uh...geese did you just wake up?"

Naruto let out a small yawn. "I was still sleeping actually."

"It's 12 o'clock...," Sasuke replied giving Naruto a strange look.

"I'd have thought you'd know my sleep patterns by now Sasuke."

Sasuke bowed his head. "I...forgot. Maybe I'll just...come back at another time then..." Sasuke replied solemnly as he turned to walk away.

"Well I'm up now. You might as well tell me what you came here for."

"I just...thought we should talk." Sasuke said as he stopped walking.

"What is there to talk about?"

"..." Sasuke remained silent for a few moments before speaking again. "No...it's...nothing...you're right. Sorry I woke you." Sasuke continued as he began to walk away again.

"..." Naruto shut the door and let out another yawn and headed back to bed.

Later that day, Sasuke walked into Gaara's office looking just as depressed as the day before.

"So how'd it go?" Gaara asked as Sasuke sat him self down on the couch and moped.

"What do you think?"

"Did you even talk to him?"

"I woke him up. I don't think he was too happy and...he didn't seem in the mood for talking."

"You woke him up? Shouldn't you be happy to still be living. I heard waking Naruto up is like asking for murder."

"I guess..."

"Just give him some time sasuke."

"But..."

"Do you want me to talk to him for you?"

"..." Sasuke looked up at Gaara blankly. "I didn't know you two talked."

"Naruto is a friend of mine. Yes. How do you think I knew you were lying yesterday? Aside from the fact that it was just ridiculous. You really aren't a very good lier."

"Wha- So you already knew!!!"

"Yeah. Pretty much."

"What the hell?!! And you didn't say anything!!!!!"

"It wasn't necessary."

"What do you mean it wasn't necessary?!!!! He probably made me seem like a total ass."

"Well yes, but there's two sides to every story. I wouldn't make judgments based on just what he said. That and I'm your counselor so I'm aware of your attitudes and behaviors enough to know what really happened without talking to you."

"So you're on my side then?"

"No."

"What? but you just said-"

"I never said I was on Naruto's side either. The fact is you both have points that should be considered and other points that are...merely a result of your own stubbornness."

"..." Sasuke looked solemnly off to the side knowing Gaara was right. "So...you'd...really talk to him for me?"

"Yeah...I'll talk to him." Gaara sighed. "Seeing you this depressed is pathetic."

"...You can't just be nice can you? You have to add in some insult somewhere."

"Be happy I offered to talk to him in the first place."

"..."

-----------------Later that afternoon-------------------------

Naruto sat inside Ichikiru's eating his usual bowel of ramen when Gaara walked in and sat next to him. "You really are predictable you know that?"

"..hmm..? Gaara? What's up?" Naruto asked in between mouth-fulls of noodles.

"Not much. Though I now have both sides of this little fight between you and your uncontrolled hormonal boyfriend."

"...So you talked to Sasuke then..." Naruto noted in a more somber tone.

"He's unavoidable. Irritatingly so."

"So what? I suppose he asked you to talk to me?"

"Sort of. More like I offered. He's pathetically depressed."

"Made another move on you didn't he?"

"Yup."

"He doesn't get it does he?"

"No. He doesn't, but he really does care for you."

"tch. He doesn't act like it."

"Yes it would seem that way but you didn't see him break down and cry because his boyfriend threatened to leave him."

"...He...cried?"

"More like sobbed yes."

"..."

"You mean a lot to him Naruto,"

"Yeah well he means a lot to me too but I...can only put up with so much. He..he has the tendancy to be a total ass."

"Would it kill you to give him a chance and actually talk to him."

"I've tried! he just..."

"He might be more willing to listen now. I think he's realized that your serious. He doesn't want to loose you. That's why he tried talking to you this morning."

"He woke me up."

"Yeah. I heard."

"I...I don't know. I just...I need some time..."

"I understand. But sooner or later...you'll have to face him."

"...Yeah..."

And with that, Gaara stood up and left Naruto to think on the situation.

Shortly after Gaara returned to his office Sasuke came knocking on the door. "Come in." he replied looking up from his office desk.

Sasuke opened the door slowly and walked in. "Did...did you talk to him?"

"Yes."

"And...?"

"And ...he needs time to think."

"But..."

"Just give him his space Sasuke."

"..."

"...Was there something else you wanted?" Gaara asked noticing sasuke just kind of standing there.

"Uh...n..no...it's nothing..."

Gaara raised an eyebrow. "Then, would there be a reason you're just standing there awkwardly?"

Sasuke shook his head slightly, snapping out of some apparent daydream. "Huh? Uh...n-no. Sorry I got distracted by you-"

"Stop!" Gaara interrupted. "I don't wanna know."

"Sorry...so I guess...I'll be going then," Sasuke replied as he turned to walk away.

After taking a few steps he stopped and turned around with a desperate look in his eyes. "Okay, while Naruto and I are taking a break and he can't get mad at me...can I get a kiss from you? Please."

"Sasuke..."

"I swear I'll never ask you for anything like this again. Think of it as a test."

Gaara simply raised an eyebrow. A test?

"This way I'll know if I'm really in love with Naruto and not just overly desperate, and ...if you're dissatisfied then I'll know- we'll know- you're not gay, and I'll leave you alone."

"Sasuke...I'm not kissing you."

"Please...," he pleaded as he took a step forward. "Gaara I-" Sasuke stopped as he noticed Gaara's hand pointing out towards him.

"Don't you dare!" Gaara warned, well aware of what Sasuke would try to do.

"I will get a kiss from you damn it!" Sasuke replied, his voice reflecting his determination.

Before Gaara had time to react, Sasuke had gripped him by the shoulders pressing his lips firmly against Gaara's.

He quickly pushed Sasuke away, shoving him to the ground. "WHAT. THE FUCK. IS WRONG WITH YOU?! How many times do I have to tell you that I'm straight?! S-t-r-a-i-g-h-t."

Sasuke looked up at him with tears forming in his eyes. "Gaara...you're so cruel to me," he moaned.

Gaara sighed and kneeled down to Sauke's level. "Well...that's what happens when you force yourself on someone who isn't interested."

"..." Sasuke gave no reply as his eyes simply shifted off to the side.

Gaara let out another small sigh. I must be loosing my mind. I can't believe I'm gonna do this.

Sasuke had little time to respond as he felt the touch of someone's hands on his face and the feel of Gaara's lips against his mouth. G-Gaara? He's..he's actually... Sasuke's eyes were open with an expression of pleasurable shock. He stared wide-eyed at the red-heads closed eyes. Realizing this was his only chance, he closed his eyes and kissed him back passionately, savoring every moment.

After a few short minutes Gaara pulled away from Sasuke. "There. Happy now?" Gaara's voice was filled with irritation and slight disgust as he wiped his mouth with his sleeve.

Sasuke was left completely dazed. "G-Gaara...that was...you-you're a damn good kisser!"

"Shut up." Gaara replied as he stood up and started to walk back towards his desk. "Now I need to find some really strong mouth-wash...or soap..."

Just then the familiar face of the Hyuuga heir popped her head through the door. "Ano..Gaara...I don't mean to interrupt but...umn...are you going to be much longer?" Hinata asked, her voice quiet and shy as usual.

Gaara turned to see the innocent white eyes of his girlfriend. "That'll do," he stated bluntly as he poofed over to Hinata instantly and kissed her with an overwhelming amount of passion.

G-Gaara..? Hinata stared at him in shock as he continued to kiss her. It wasn't the first time he had impulsively kissed her but this kiss was a notch above the others not to mention, the door was swung open, making them in clear view for anyone standing out in the hall. These thoughts caused a deep blush to cover her face a she fell back, lifelessly, in Gaara's arms as the kiss finally broke.

"Hinata...? Hey, you okay?" Gaara looked slightly confused as he began to fan her face in an attempt to wake her up. Sometime in-between all of this Sasuke had snuck out of the room and down the hall.

The day continued, and Gaara- after waking her up- had spent the majority of the day with Hinata. He gave her a quick kiss as he walked her home, soon heading for his own home as well.

Gaara stepped through the door letting out a small sigh. Kankuro was sitting comfortably on the couch watching the T.V screen and Temari was off in the kitchen somewhere.

"Hey, Gaara," Kankuro greeted, his eyes staying fixed on the TV.

"...Hey..."

After a few seconds or so Temari came out to the living-room. "Hey, umn...you might want to check the answering machine, you have a whack load of messages."

"I do? From who?" Gaara was quite surprised. He wasn't the most popular person around. His siblings got more messages then he did and even then it didn't amount to much.

"I dunno. Didn't check. They're for you, you can listen to them yourself."

"..." Gaara sighed and walked over to the phone, hearing the familiar voice of the machine as he pressed the button to play the messages.

-beep- You have 113 new messages. -beep-

"What the hell?"

"I told you."

-beep- Message 1: "Hey...uh...it's me...Sasuke...umn...I guess you're not home. Umn...I'll just call back later." -beep- Message 2: "Hey...It's me again. guess your still not home. Could you give me a call when you come back? Okay. Bye." -beep-

----------------------5 minutes later------------------------

-beep- Message 21:"Hey...umn...yeah okay I was just...well I went by your office earlier and you weren't there. You usually are so I was just wondering where you went." -beep-

----------------------5 minutes later------------------------

-beep- Message 40: "Umn...hi...I guess you're still not home. It'd be nice if you could give me a call. I was thinking maybe I could come by." -beep-

----------------------20 minutes later----------------------

-beep- Message 93: "Guess who...Sorry to leave you so many messages. Just lonely here...thinking about what happened earlier. Hoping you'll call...and we can at least talk...maybe..." -beep-

----------------------20 minutes later----------------------

-beep- Message 107: "Where are you?" -beep-

----------------------2 minutes later------------------------

-beep- Message 111:sniff "I'm so lonely" sniff -beep-Message 112:"..." sounds of excessive sobing "..." -beep- Message 113: "...Okay, you're starting to piss me off you heartless sunuva bitch!...CALL ME" -beep-

"..." Gaara just looked dumbfounded at all the messages as he stared angrily at the phone.

"Wow...Sasuke really likes you," Kankuro commented from a few feet away.

"So umn...What exactly happened with you two?" Temari asked a small curious smirk on her face.

"Nothing," Gaara growled as he deleted the messages and walked off towards his room.

"I didn't know you we're gay Gaara," Kankuro stated, not completely listening to the conversation.

Gaara stopped and turned to glare at him. "I'm not."

"Kankuro...Gaara has a girlfriend," Temari reminded him.

"Gaara has a boyfriend?" Again, Kankuro wasn't exactly paying attention.

Gaara's eye twitched slightly in annoyence.

"No. He's going out with Hinata Hyuuga."

"Hyuuga? You mean that Neji kid?"

Gaara's eye twitched again as Gaara clenched his hands into fists.

"No. His cousin. Hinata. She is female."

"I thought she was going out with Naruto?"

"Nope. They broke up. Naruto's going out with Sasuke."

"So Gaara is going out with Sasuke?"

"Kankuro would it kill you to actually PAY-A-FUCKING-TENTION TO THE CONVERSATION!!" Gaara yelled out finally.

"hmn?...What was that?"

Temari smacked her forehead in surrender. "I give up," she mumbled.

"...I'll be in my room." Gaara stated simply as he walked down the hall. To simply say he was agitated or annoyed would be a huge understatement.

Gaara's room was predictably dark with a simple and clean design. off to the side there was a small desk and chair- the only real piece of furniture in the room other then his bed and a small dresser. The chair's back currently facing Gaara as he flopped down on the bed and simply stared at the ceiling.

This silence didn't last long as it was soon interrupted by the small squeak of a chair. Gaara sat up to see, to his surprise, Sasuke sitting in the chair in-front of his desk. "What the-" he started to yell but stopped, realizing it would look pretty bad if Temari or Kankuro came to see what the yelling was about. he lowered his voice to a whisper, still attempting to yell. "What the hell are you doing in my room?! Wait. Scratch that. What are you even doing in my house?!!"

"Sorry, but I had to see you," Sasuke replied. He stood up and took a few steps towards Gaara, moving to wrap his arms over his shoulder. His attempt failed as Gaara ducked and moved out of the way, making Sasuke stumble forward slightly.

"No. Go. Get out of my room, and out of my house!" he replied pointing to the door.

"But-"

Gaara refused to let him talk as he shewed him out into the hall. "If you don't get your ass moving right now I sware I will show you what it really means to be in pain! Now go!"

Sasuke sighed and began to walk down the hall. "...Fine..."

Gaara then grabbed him by the back of the collar and turned him tin the other direction.

"Change your mind?"

"No. You we're going the wrong way. You're using the back door." Gaara didn't exactly want to deal with the questions his siblings would ask if they saw Sasuke just walk out of the house.

"You know you want me."

"No. I don't. Now go," he replied, pushing him towards the door.

"Then you wouldn't have kissed me."

"That. Was to shut you up. Apparently it didn't work."

Gaara continued to push Sasuke, practically forcing him out the door. he was about to shut it but was stopped as Sasuke slid his foot between the door and poked his head back through. "You ever need anything you let me know."

"Sasuke. If you don't move I will slam the door shut with you still in it!"

"Oh now that's not a very nice thing to say. You could at least give me chance."

"I have a girlfriend thank you," Gaara replied, still trying to shove Sasuke out of the door way.

"So did Naruto."

"A-" Gaara was about to argue back but sasuke had already slid out of the door and walked away. He saw him walking a little ways away and noticed him turn around and wink at him.

"..."

Gaara turned around and stormed out the front door. "I'm going out." he stated to his siblings before heading down the streets, headed for a house belonging to a certain blonde haired ninja.

Naruto was currently sitting at the table eating another bowl of Ramen when Gaara came bursting through the door. "G-Gaara?!"

"Would you please! For the love of God and my sanity! Go back to your psychopathic creeper of a boyfriend!!"

Naruto just stared at him blankly for a couple seconds, not quite sure what to say to that. "Umn...wow..is it really that bad?"

"You. Have no. Idea."

"Relax Gaara, you probably just said or did something that gave him the wrong idea."

"Oh God. Just kill me now," he replied, though not exactly speaking directly to Naruto. He sat down in a chair across from him and bowed his head down in his hands. "Please. Just end it now. I can't do it myself. Have some mercy."

"Umn...wow...so what'd you do?"

"You don't need to know."

"And...why is that?"

"Your a jealous type of boyfriend. You wont be happy with me."

Naruto raised an eyebrow. Now he really wanted to know. "What did you do?"

"I kissed him."

"You what?!!" Naruto yelled, standing up from the table.

"I kissed him. He wanted a kiss and.. being really pathetic and- I was trying to shut him up! Let it be known that I DID NOT ENJOY IT."

"Well I should HOPE NOT! Gaara!! What the hell?!"

"Can we spare me the lecture please."

"I suppose he enjoyed it? Fucking whore."

"A little to much."

"Figures." Naruto stepped away from the table and turned his back to Gaara as his face took on a more somber expression as he tried to stop tears from coming to his eyes.

Gaara looked up from his hands. "..Naruto..."

"He wants you. He can fucking have you." Naruto lifted his sleeve to wipe away a couple tears.

"No. No he can't! Naruto, look. yes he likes me but he- he loves you."

"..."

"I know..it doesn't sound like it but- Look he's only really desperate like this when you aren't with him or when you two are in a fight. He's trying to fill the void he feels without you by hitting on me."

"..."

"You don't know some of the things he thinks of you. He's to shy to actually say them to your face."

"..." This comment intrigued Naruto and he turned around to look at Gaara, signaling for him to go on.

"He, he likes the way your hair falls around your face."

"..."

"And your eyes. He thinks they look really 'pretty' under the moonlight."

"He...he said that?"

"Not directly no."

"Then how..."

"He's generally quite attracted to your body. Right down to the way you ..smell...and...feel."

"...How do you-"

"I know because...they're compliments he's given to me. It's not because he actually likes me that much. He does like me but...he's...trying to make up for the loneliness he feels when your not there for him."

"..."

Gaara stood up from the table ready to leave. "Go and talk to him. You owe him that much. It wont kill you."

And with that Gaara left Naruto to once again think on the situation.

-----------------------------Later that evening----------------------------------------

Sasuke lay lazily on his couch, flicking through the TV channels. He had just come out of the shower a few minutes ago and so his hair was no longer in it's usual gravity-defying spiked style as his bangs fell loosely around his face.

Sudenly there was a simple knock on the door. Grudgingly, he got up and answered it only to find Naruto standing before him. "N-Naruto?"

Naruto said nothing as he simply swung his arms tightly around Sasuke.

Sasuke was baffled by this unexpected reaction as he slowly placed his ams around Naruto.

"I'm sorry," Naruto whispered finally.

"What? Naruto...Why are you sorry...? I'm the one wh-"

Naruto let go of him and shook his head no. "Gaara, told me."

"Told you what?"

Naruto smiled sweetly. "You cried..."

Sasuke turned around quickly to hide his face as a small blush appeared on his cheeks.

"He also told me how attractive you think I am. Oh and one of your favorite features of me are my eyes."

The blush on Sasuke's face deepened as he walked towards his room. "I'm..gunna go get changed," He replied, as he wasn't wearing much other then a pair of simple, dark blue pants. How did Gaara know that? I never said anything like that...It's true...but...I'm sure I didn't say anything...

Naruto followed him into his room. "Actually. He said you never said those things out-loud."

Sasuke turned around to face him, his blush now faded.

"He said he knew cause those we're compliments you gave to him. That you get lonely and desperate without me, so you try to fill the void."

"..." Sasuke couldn't find the words to say anything as tears rose to his eyes. Gaara had him pinned exactly. Even he couldn't understand so many things about himself. "Naruto..." His lovers name escaped from his lips as he lunged forward and embraced naruto tightly. "Please come back. I've been jerk. I'm a total ass. I'm sorry please. I..I can't spend another night alone without you."

"Sasuke..."

"Please. I-I miss you..so much."

"I missed you too. I'm still here. I won't leave you Sasuke. I couldn't bare it if I tried." Naruto's voice was soft and low with a slightly sombre tone.

Tears fell from Sasuke's eyes as he began to kiss Naruto tenderly, moving down his neck and jaw line. His kisses we're quick and desperate. Oh how he had longed to be this close to Naruto once again.

Naruto smiled simply as he let Sasuke lavish him in kisses. Though he made no note about it, he too had longed for Sasuke's touch. Looking down at the raven haired boy he couldn't help but feel overwhelming passion. He lifted Sasuke's face to meet his eyes. Gently, he held Sasuke's face in his hands as he wiped away his tears with his thumb. "Sasuke...did you really miss me or just my body?"

Sasuke smiled, letting out a small relieved laugh. "Both."

Naruto couldn't help but smile back. Typical Sasuke, full of nothing but perverted passion. And yet, he wouldn't have it any other way.

He leaned in slowly and pressed his lips softly against Sasuke's as they became consumed in an ever-passionate kiss.

It wasn't long before the two fell blissfully onto the bed as Sasuke removed Naruto's shirt. He began to again kiss down his neck and across his collar bone, this time going even lower down Naruto's chest.

Naruto closed his eyes in ecstasy as he felt Sasuke's lips graze across his stomach.

Before long, Sasuke had the two of them pant-less and more in love then they could've ever imagined. He worked his way down Naruto's inner thigh, kissing him softly.

Naruto gripped the cotton bed-sheets as he felt Sasuke between his thighs.

Sasuke soon brought his kisses back to Naruto's lips as the two once again embraced in a passionate kiss.

The night continued and their passion grew as the two boys once again found themselves lost in the sexual bliss they had so longed for.

The bond between the two was stronger then it had ever been and continued to grow as the night moved on. To feel the other in their arms, to taste the sweet taste of their lips, it was complete serenity to the two young Konoha nin. Never had they imagined just how close their bond was. After all the time spent in Team 7, how had they grown to love each other this much? The answer remained unknown but neither of them cared. In the end the reason they we're together now was all because of one person. The one they really needed to thank for this, was Gaara.

Sasuke would have to tell him so upon his next appointment.

-------------

"Sasuke?"

"hmn...?"

"What was it like to kiss Gaara?"

"...Amazing."

"Better then me?"

"hmn.. I dunno..."

"..."

"Are you kidding? No one's better then you. You're the only one I could ever really love."

"Sasuke...you're such a whore...but I love you."

"I love you t-wait. I'm a what now?"

"Haha. Nothing."

"Oh that's it. You're in trouble now."

"Am I?"

"Don't expect to be able to move tomorrow."

"Sounds like a promising night."

"mn...damn straight."
