Remember when I was young and so were you
and time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
"Hina-hime, do you remember the time we first got together?" Shikamaru asked as he looked over at his lovely wife of 40 years. They, as a couple and ninja's, had survived a great deal and had in fact out lived most of their friends. Between jealous exes, her father, the wars and children it had been a busy life. They sat now overlooking the country side from their perch on top of the Hokage Cliff. She glanced over at him, her light purple, irisless eyes smiling at him. "Yes, the day we became each other's firsts." He nodded and reached across for her hand.
Remember when we vowed the vows
and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
"Troublesome as it all had been with the over dramatics of our friends, the wedding and then the kids, I honestly wouldn't trade it all for anything." She grinned at his words, and she couldn't help but agree with what he said. As peaceful as things were now, they had not always been, but they always managed to make to through together. "Say Shika, do you think that tomorrow we could go see Shikumro and his wife? I know their kids are in the Academy, but we haven't seen our son in so long." He nodded and looked back out over the city, it was built different after Pein's attack all those years ago.
Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other's hearts
"I wonder if Shikumro, Shikino and Hinasa will bring their children by on the weekend, I miss the sound of children." Hinata laughed and he scowled in answer wondering why she was laughing at him for being honest. "Shika, 40 years ago you never would have been sentimental." He grunted and shook his head. "Leave me alone, I'm an old man, I'm entitled. 40 years ago you weren't as bold to say such things you old minx." He gave a a side glance and she grinned while shaking her head. "Don't call me that, makes me sound all… ew… I like just grandma f you please you old bat." She playfully swung at him.
Remember when the sound of little feet
was the music
We danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
He dodged her swing before moving closer on the seat to wrap an arm around her and pull her closer to him. "55. I can't believe we're 55." He nodded and sighed at her words. "Yea, at one point it was an odd thing even being 30." They grew quiet as they both became lost in their own thoughts and memories of their life. They had been blessed, unlike most of their friends and fellow ninja, with a long and happy, even though a highly eventful, life.
Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookn' back it's just a steppin' stone
To where we are,
Where we've been
Said we'd do it all again
Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when
I honestly know this is short, and I've read all the reviews. I tried the suggested song but couldn't get into it and instead this song crossed my mind.
To hit on a few things:
I never said Hinata and Naruto actually dated, I know it says 'they asked me out' but that was more of a Kiba thing and she wasn't being very specific.
I also know it jumps a bit, but it's supposed to in the second chapter, it covers a few years in a few paragraphs.
I actually didn't make t seem as if someone had died at all, that was just the song lyrics.
And yes, this is the last chapter.
~~~ If there are any spelling mistakes I can honestly say it's because my 'i' and 'y' buttons don't like to work on my new keyboard, piece of crap... Never get a cheap keyboard... ever.
Thanks for reading everyone!
