Once again I am sorry for the supper long delay P School's just been busy lately. Plus, I am also sorry for not telling you about this is my last chapter... I ran out of ideas for this one and I am also planning to start another one. So once again...sorry!!

Gaara sat back down on the roof and looked at the moon. It was nights like this he wished he was back in Suna. The sky seemed much more clear there. He looked over to Sakura. She had also sat up and was staring out into the distance. I don't know how to tell her.

'Then don't! It's that simple.'

I wish it was, but you have no idea. I have to. If not tonight, then tomorrow for sure.

'For your information I do have an idea.'

What's your idea?


You said you had an idea. What is it?

'That's not what I meant! And you know it!'

Sakura stared out into the sky. When she was little, she always loved to see how many stars she could count. She smiled at the memory. Sakura looked over at Gaara. He had a blank expression on his face. Who would have thought I would actually get to know the OH so famous Kazekage of the Sand?

'Who would have known, but I'm glad you did. Just look at him'

Yeah. . . okay then.

'Oh come on. You know I'm right.'

Sakura smiled. He is different from the last time I've seen him.

'Hell yeah he is! He's gotten hotter!'

' What? Can't a girl dream?'

Sakura silently laughed at herself. She looked at Gaara again and noticed he had a small smirk on his face. If that doesn't scream inner conflict, I don't know what does.

Sakura then noticed Gaara turn his attention to her. "Sakura, there's something I need to tell you."

'Uh-oh, this doesn't sound good.'

"What is it?"

"I'm leaving tomorrow."

Sakura sat there not knowing what to do. He's leaving? But why?

'He is the Kazekage, Hun.'

I know that! Why on such short notice and all that? He could have told me before!

"Sakura, I'm sorry I didn't tell you earlier."

"No, it's okay." She replied sadly.

"I'm glad you understand. I need to get ready."

Both Gaara and Sakura stood up. Sakura ran up to him and engulfed him in a hug. Tears started to flow out of her eyes. She tightened her grip when she felt him return the hug. They stood there for what seemed like hours, until Gaara broke the hug. "I'm sorry." He whispered.

Gaara then walked to the other side of the roof and jumped down, leaving a sad and confused Sakura.

The next morning Sakura didn't want to get up. He was leaving and she didn't care. But being the person she is, she got up and went into the kitchen. She entered the room with a tired looking Temari and Kankuro. "Good morning, Sakura!" Temari greeted.

'Honestly, who's that happy this early?'

Sakura smiled in return. Both of the siblings stood up as Gaara walked into the room. Sakura was sure the Sand sibling's could feel the tension in the air. She sighed and went up to Gaara. "Hey, Gaara, I need to ask you something."

Sakura led Gaara into the other room. "Sakura, what's this about?"

"I'm coming with you."

"You're what?"

"I'm coming with you to Suna. There's no reason for me to stay here anymore."

Gaara smiled. "Well then, you have an hour to pack and say your good-byes."


Gaara nodded. Sakura let out a huge smile and hurried upstairs to pack. I'll never understand her.

One hour later all four of them were at the front gates of Konoha. Sakura was finish saying good-bye to Tsunade. "Now Sakura, I expect you to come visit me."

"Of course, Tsunade. Right now, I think it's time for me to go."

Tsunade watched as Sakura walked up to Gaara and then disappeared into the forest.
