Epilogue: Your Guardian Angel

When I see your smile
Tears roll down my face I can't replace
And now that I'm strong I have figured out
How this world turns cold and it breaks through my soul
And I know I'll find deep inside me I can be the one

"Sasuke-Kun." Her voice sounded deliciously pained. As if the sight of him made her heart throb and shiver and quake. He didn't turn to face her. She wasn't really there. She was just a figment of his imagination. A little mirage designed to make him realize the meds weren't working. Then again, when did they ever complete the task of ridding her from his mind? Not yet and he had decided they never would. "Oh, Sasuke-Kun!" She gasped out in that gorgeous pitch. He could just see the emerald eyes wide with tears and silent pleading, the rosy lips hung open as she cried out and the soft pink locks framing her face elegantly as she cried out to him. So beautiful. So angelic. Such a demonic, hideous, beautiful, cruel thing she was.

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up for you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

He turned and faced her. Those lips turned upward in a graceful arc, a smile he came to love and long to see every day. Her eyes gleamed a brighter color at her joy of his attention. "Oh Sasuke-Kun, you finally looked at me again." She mused happily, reaching out to touch him. He knew how it always worked. Her hand would faze through him, leaving them both bitter and heartbroken.

"You aren't real, Sakura. You're just an illusion I've come up with to keep myself from forgetting you." He stated harshly and her hand froze. Her eyes widened in horror at his words. She tilted her head downward, long pink bangs hiding her tempting eyes from his view. A little cloud appeared beside her. His eyes widened, because this was not a normal occurrence to his maniac episodes.

And seasons are changing
And waves are crashing
And stars are falling all for us
Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
I can show you I'll be the one

Standing beside her was her loyal assistance, Kakashi. He wore the long black cloak that he had always worn in the past. His scythe was in his right hand, a watch in the left. "Sakura-Sama, time is running out. Does he understand?" He asked softly, indicating the dark haired male staring at them in sheer alarm.

She looked up tearfully. "No, he doesn't. Time is up and now we'll never have our happily ever after." She whispered softly. She reached out and her hand touched his cheek, caressing the pale flesh. If she wasn't real, her hand wouldn't be able to reach him. "Our time is up now." She murmured before taking her hand back. His heart began to break as her black wings cascaded from her back, the tips gently flickering on the cold white tile.

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up for you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

He tried to grab at her but she was starting to float. "No! Don't leave me again! Don't you dare!" He screamed, gripping at her frantically. The doctors and nurses rushed in. He glared at them all, swinging his arm to try and shield himself from their reaching arms. "No! Get away from me! She's here; I know she really is this time!" He screamed as they tried to subdue him. One doctor tackled him down while a few nurses grabbed his arms and legs. He continued to thrash about, despite him being straddled by the medical team.

Kakashi looked frantically between the cool and calm Sakura to the frantic and crazy Sasuke. She smiled, snapping her fingers. He looked at her. She smiled. "Kakashi, I've been waiting five years for him. I will not be denied again. And from the looks of it, neither will he." She purred softly, her eyes warm and loving on the boy being stuck with needle after needle of anesthetics. "He'll be dead soon. Take his soul and bring it bellow. I'll be getting his outfit finalized." She stated before waving and disappearing. Kakashi watched her disappear then watched as the doctors tried to subdue the enraged and annoyed raven haired teen. It took a good ten minutes but finally his head lolled to the side and his eyes closed. His heart stopped. Kakashi sighed.

"So she shut down his systems reaction time to the meds so that they'd over dose him. At least she's smart enough so it looks like malpractice and his brother can sue for some money. He'll be happy about that." He murmured before lifting his scythe and bringing it down just at the young male's heart. His soul crawled out, weaving in a pale silver mist around his blade. "Best hurry and get him back down." He murmured, flying away before the soul could materialize.

Cuz you're my, you're my, my-ay-ay, my true love, my whole heart
Please don't throw that away
Cuz I'm here for you
Please don't walk away and,
Please tell me you'll stay, woah stay woah

He opened his eyes slowly, trying to regather his thoughts. He had seen her. She had touched him. He shot up and looked around. He wasn't in his room with its all white d├ęcor. He was in a room with a large bed, which he was on, draped with dark purple bedding. A long black veil fell over the bed, making it slightly darker The room was all dark purple, the walls and other furnishings the same dark hue. The only thing that wasn't purple was a large black desk with a leather chair. Someone sat there.

The chair slowly turned and he froze. Long, flowing bubble gum locks. Dark, mischievous jade orbs. The milky white skin that was soft as velvet. Rosy lips turned upward in a beautiful yet almost cruel smile. "Welcome to the Underworld, Sasuke-Kun." She hummed in that delicious voice he'd missed so much.

Use me as you will
Pull my strings just for a thrill
And I know I'll be ok
Though my skies are turning gray

He looked at her with wide eyes. She smiled and stood, walking toward him. She wore a long black dress with white cuffs at the wrist and edges of the skirt. A white ribbon that was tied into a bow in the back hugged around her waist. She pulled back the veil and crawled over to him, settling in his lap. "Sasuke-Kun, I'm sorry you had to die like that. But I made sure it was painless for you. Please don't get mad." She whispered softly, gently resting her hands on his shoulders.

Sasuke pulled her closer and crashed his lips to hers. She blinked before leaning into it. She wrapped her arms securely around his neck, pressing her body to his. He smirked into the kiss. They broke away and they smiled at each other. "I missed you so much." He whispered, letting one of his hands tangle in her hair. She giggled lightly.

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up for you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven

"You're stuck with me now, darling. I hope you don't mind." She hummed. He chuckled and lightly kissed her cheek. She smiled and nuzzled deeply into the crook of his neck. "I'm not letting you get away from me ever again so you'd best get ready for the long run."

"I could say the exact same to you. Now, once we're done here, I believe I have some unfinished business with a certain blond haired demon fox." He growled into the top of her head. Sakura laughed lightly. "I'll have to pay him back the Hell he's given us."

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up for you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
