-- I own nothing--

Drip, drip, drip was the only sound in the dark cold cell. Occasionally the sounds of chains could be heard from the occupant of the cell trying to get comfortable even though nothing worked. His arms were chained above his head and even though he could sit his arms were aching from the position. Shikamaru sighed. 'If it wasn't for her in his life this wouldn't have happened' he thought.

I hate feelin' like this
I'm so tired of tryin' to fight this
I'm asleep and all I dream of is waking to You

He sighed again 'that wasn't true, he needed her'

Tell me that You will listen
Your touch is what I'm missin'
And the more I hide I realize I'm slowly losin' You

Comatose
I'll never wake up without an overdose of You

"Troublesome," he breathed out to the empty cell. 'Oh God did he need that woman. She was his very air that he breathed' he closed his eyes to only see her face and remembered very single moment he spent with her before he went on this failure of a mission.

I don't wanna live
I don't wanna breathe
'less I feel You next to me
You take the pain I feel
(Wakin' up to You never felt so real)
I don't wanna sleep
I don't wanna dream
'cause my dreams don't comfort me
The way You make me feel
(Wakin' up to You never felt so real)

'Where is he? He should've been back by now' Temari paced back and forth in her and Shikamaru's apartment.

I hate livin' without You
Dead wrong to ever doubt You
But my demons lay in waitin'
Tempting me away
Oh how I adore You
Oh how I thirst for You
Oh how I need You

"You ready? C'mon we gotta get going," Kankurou leaned in the doorway. She looked up at her brother,

"Yeah I'm coming," 'I just wanted to see him before I headed back to Suna' Temari thought.

Comatose

"Hey don't worry about it. You'll only be in Suna for a couple of weeks and it's not like he doesn't know that you'd be gone," Temari nodded at her brother's lame way of trying to cheer her up. "Trust me once you get back the lazy ass will be home and sleeping like he usually does," Kankurou led her out, she sighed. He had a point but she just had a feeling that something wasn't right.

I don't wanna live
I don't wanna breathe
'less I feel You next to me

After a few days in Suna and still no word from Shikamaru, Temari knew something wasn't right. She headed to Gaara's office to tell him that she was going back to Konoha to see what happened to Shika when one of the soldiers came up to her in the hall. "My lady, the Kazekage has been looking for you,"

"I was just going to see him," she replied. The solider bowed and went back to his post. Temari stopped just in front of Gaara's door. 'If he wanted to see me then he either has a mission for me or he has news,' taking a deep breath she knocked once on the door and headed in. Gaara looked over his shoulder to see his sister step in. He stood in front of the big picture window in his office. "You wanted to see me?" he nodded to his desk where a report laid on top. He once again turned to look out the window. She noticed the report was from Konoha.

You take the pain I feel
(Wakin' up to You never felt so real)

Month: August

Day: Thursday

Report concerning the return of a classified scroll

The returning of the scroll was a success but the team was heavily wounded. Only one casualty.

Team Members: Hyuga Neji (ICU),

Inuzuka Kiba and Akamaru (ICU),

Nara Shikamaru (MIA)


I don't wanna sleep
I don't wanna dream
'cause my dreams don't comfort me
The way You make me feel
(Wakin' up to You never felt so real)
Temari had to reread the report over again to make sure she was reading it correctly. The last words stood out 'Nara Shikamaru (MIA)' "I have a squad waiting for you when you want to leave. My sources say he was last seen in Grass Country," Gaara never looked away from the window.


Breathing life
Waking up
My eyes
Open up

"Thank you," Temari whispered. She quickly turned around and headed out for Grass Country.

Comatose

"MY LADY IN HERE!" one of the sand shinobi yelled. What would have taken a week to get to the Grass Country only took a few days. Temari didn't care if she lost her group the only thing on her mind was getting to him. Gaara knew she would do this and that's why he sent his best with her. They were the only ones that could keep up with her. Temari ran to the cell that the shinobi pointed. 'Oh God let him still be alive' she silently prayed.

I don't wanna live
I don't wanna breathe
'less I feel You next to me
You take the pain I feel
(Wakin' up to You never felt so real)
I don't wanna sleep
I don't wanna dream
'cause my dreams don't comfort me
The way You make me feel
(Wakin' up to You never felt so real)

"Sh-Shikamaru…"

Oh how I adore You
Wakin' up to You never felt so real
Oh how I thirst for You

"Temari" Shikamaru could barely left his head 'I must be dreaming'


Wakin' up to You never felt so real
Oh how I adore You


"Everything is going to be alright" she breathed.


Oh
The way You make me feel
Wakin' up to You never felt so real
