Thanks to those who all reviewed. My next story will be called: A Mystery She Will Solve
And now for the last chapter of this story, chapter 14!!
I see the angels, I'll lead them to your door, there's no escape now, no mercy no more. No remorse 'cause I still remember the smile that tore me apart.
Sakura got out of Temari's jeep and waited for her by the door. Temari walked up and unlocked it, and both of them went in. "My dad isn't around, so make yourself at home if you're not going to bed right away. Do what ever you want, but I'm off to bed." Temari said.
Sakura nodded and watched Temari leave the room and went down a hallway, and then waited for the door to close. She then got up and went into Gaara's room. There were a few things she wanted to know, that hopefully were in his room. Sakura quietly walked down the bedroom hallway and slipped into his room. She closed the door behind her and flicked on the light switch. There wasn't much in the room; a bed, dresser, and a desk. The walls were black, and the bed looked old and rarely used. The wooden floor didn't look too welcoming either. She walked over to the desk to see if there was anything he could've written. She searched the drawers and found a bunch of notebooks. Picking up the first one, she searched through it. All of them were nothing but school work, except for the last one. Inside it were many sketches. Who knew Gaara could draw? Sakura thought as she looked at each page of the notebook.
To Sakura, it looked like each picture was from a point in life he remembered, and most of them happened to him. Lots of the pictures were showing him being beaten or of someone dead. But what really caught her eye, was one of the last sketches. It was a picture of her and Gaara, and they were hugging. Both of them looked happy. Sakura sighed and turned to the next page. She was shocked to see what it was. He was sitting on a bed, holding a blade to his wrist, and his face was hidden under a mask. He did this before it happened. How does he draw everything, before it even happens? She wondered.
Sakura put the notebooks away and walked over to his bed. She stopped when she felt the floorboard move slightly. She knelt down and lifted the board up. Inside was a box that was probably filled with pictures. She pulled out the box and sat on the floor. She looked at the box's details. It looked old, beaten, and probably had seen better days. She took the cover off and the first thing that caught her eye was a photograph. Sakura took it out and studied it close. It was a picture of the family. Sakura could identify Gaara, Temari, and Kankuro, but the other three she didn't know. One of them looked like Gaara's father, but she wasn't sure. She put the picture on the floor and took out the next one. Sakura looked close and gasp. "You found it, huh?"
Sakura looked at the door and noticed Temari. "Yeah. I just wanted to know."
"Don't worry, you'd probably would of found out anyway."
"What happened to him here?" Sakura asked as Temari came over to look at the picture.
Temari sighed. "He stood up for Kankuro, that's what. He basically yelled at my dad, and that's what happened. He beat 'em up until he couldn't stand and shot him in the shoulder." Temari told.
Sakura grabbed the picture from before. "Who are the older people in this picture?"
"Well, that's my dad," she pointed to the man with dark brown hair, "that's my mom," she pointed to a women with light brown hair, "and that's my uncle, Yashamaru," and pointed to a man who looked almost similar to her mom. "My mom and uncle are dead."
"What happened to them?" Sakura asked.
"My mom died in child labor, and my uncle was murdered."
"Who murdered him?"
"I don't know, but my dad always said it was Gaara. Yashamaru died when Gaara was six-years-old. I don't think he was capable of doing that." Temari mentioned.
"I don't think he did."
"No one else does, either. But, that's in the past."
"So, what's all in this box?" Sakura wondered.
"I'm not sure. I know there are pictures and maybe some things Gaara wrote, but I never really looked."
Sakura put everything back in the box, and put the box back under the floorboards. "Okay, I'm off to bed." Sakura said, standing up.
"Alright, I'll see you in the morning." Temari said leaving the room.
Sakura left the room and went to go sleep on the couch.
Sakura woke up to the smell of something burning. She quickly got up and ran into the kitchen. She looked around and saw Kankuro cooking something in the microwave. Sakura walked to it and looked inside. Waffles. Microwavable waffles. And they were black. "Um, Kankuro, you do know your waffles are burning, right?"
Kankuro looked at the microwave. "They're not burning."
"But, they're black." Sakura added.
"That just mean they're almost done." Kankuro finished.
Sakura just watched disgusted as Kankuro ate his black waffles, when Temari walked in. "When you're ready, Sakura, we'll go."
"Okay." Sakura nodded.
After have a quick breakfast, Sakura took a shower and got ready. Then, she and Temari drove to the hospital. When they arrived at the hospital, Sakura started to get nervous. What am I going to say? Especially when Temari gonna be right there. Sakura tried to remain calm as they started walking to Gaara's room. When they got to his room both of them stopped before entering. "You can go in first, Sakura. I feel there's something you want to talk about."
Sakura walked inside and closed the door behind her. She raised her head and looked towards Gaara, who was sitting up in his bed. She walked over to him and pulled up a chair. "Hey." She smiled.
"Hey." Gaara whispered back.
"I'm glad you're better, but I want to tell you something. I want to say I'm really sorry for how I acted at school yesterday."
"It's okay. I should be the one who's sorry. A part of me really wanted to believe you, but something kept telling me not to." Gaara explained.
Sakura smiled and hugged him. Gaara gladly hugged her back. "You wanna know something?" Sakura asked.
"It might sound crazy, but I think I love you."
"Me two, Sakura. Me two."
Well if you ask me, the ending is really bad, but it could have been worse.

Yays for all of you!! Anyway, I'll true to have the new story up soon. Here are some things that are gonna happen…
He sat there, chained to the wall. His body beaten and bruised. How was he going to get out of here?
Sakura opened the door to the Kazekage's office and looked around. The room was dark, but she saw a figure slumped over on the desk. She ran over to him and saw that the signs were showing…again.
His chakra covered body charged at him with intense speed. His sand wasn't near him, instead it was protecting the other ninja, but the ninja changed course and headed straight to him.
