Hinata stepped back, "What do you mean?"

Sasuke took a deep breath, "I said I did go after you."

"T-That's a lie…."

"Like hell it is you think I would just sit around and wonder where you were forever. After two weeks thinking you'd come back I snuck into the Hokage's office and found out where she sent you. I left immediately to the Suna when I got there I searched practically everywhere for you until I gave up and went to see Gaara. It took me forever to convince him to tell me where you were staying." Sasuke stopped telling his story it was too hard for him to continue.

"What happened?"

He sat back down on his bed, "Forget it I don't want to talk about it anymore."

She felt the incredible urge to smack him at that very moment. "Are you serious? You bugged me for hours and made me tell why I left! Now you tell me right now what happened?!"

He was quite for a moment and he couldn't even look at her, "I…..went to your apartment and I was about to knock on your door when I saw you through your window. You……were sitting there……in your chair balling your eyes out. You looked so sad…..and I thought I must have done something so horrible wrong to make you that upset. And I figured it be best if I just left and not cause you any more pain. I DIDN'T KNOW YOU LEFT BECAUSE YOU WERE AFRAID!!"

"What you would you have done…….if you knocked and I opened the door?"

"I don't know I guess just ask you what was wrong and try to make you come back with me if I could."

She looked around nervously, "I don't know what to say."

He got up and brushed past her he still hadn't looked at her, "Nothing there is nothing you can say to make this situation any better."

"I know it's all my fault." Hinata sat down on the bed with her heads in her hands trying not to cry.

It was silent for a very long time Hinata sitting on the bed and Sasuke was facing the wall. He groaned, "You were right ok? I did tell Naruto that I had to marry you….I was kind of drunk and it just came out. I had no idea you were listening. I wanted to marry you because I wanted to and that's it."

"What about Karin?"

Sasuke's eyes widened "W-What d-do you mean?"

"Do you really think that this is the first time I came back? I came back a couple of months ago….no one knew I came. I wanted to see you to make sure that you were ok. It was six months since I left so I shouldn't have been so surprised that you had moved on but with her! When I saw you two together I just couldn't take it. Why her? It made me sick to see her all over you." Hinata tried to get the memory of seeing Sasuke and Karin on their date.

"It was nothing I went on a date to prove to myself I was over you. Karin was the only girl I knew that would go out with me. It was a horrible date that I wish I never went on. " He turned around to face her, "You came back for me?"

She looked up at him, "Of course I did. You really think that I could go a whole year without seeing you. I couldn't I came back because I love you."

He couldn't stop the smirk from appearing on his face, "Love don't you mean loved?"

She didn't even realize that she let that one slip out but she wasn't going to take it back now that it was out there. "No I meant love I can't help it Sasuke. I feel terrible for what I did and if I could go back and change it I would. This has been the worst year without you and I know that there is no way you can ever forgive me." In the middle of her little rant Hinata had started crying. She had kept these feelings to herself for long it she just had to let it all out. "And even if you could ever forgive me I don't think I'll ever forgive myself."

"Can we stop with the pity party Hinata?"

She groaned and threw the kunai he left on the bed at him, "IT'S HOW I FEEL YOU STUPID JERK!"


Hinata realized something as she looked at the boxes of her things, "You wanted me to come back."

Still kicking he asked, "What are you talking about?"

"You wanted me to come back. That's why you kept all my things. You knew where I was you could have sent it to me. But instead you decided to keep it because you hoped I would come back one day."

"That's……….just…..stupid!" He couldn't argue with her the evidence was right in front of them. He had hoped she would come back just so he could see her and ask her why. He never thought she would actually show up or that they would be locked in his storage room.

She pointed to the necklace, "And you're still wearing it that has to mean something."


Hinata stood up she couldn't stand being stuck in there another moment without knowing. "Do you still love me?!"

He turned away, "What?"

"Do you still love me? I need to know!"

"And what if I did what next are we supposed to go back and pretend like nothing ever happened. Or are we supposed to just start all over. I can't do either one. So why does it matter?"

She reached out and grabbed his arm trying to make him turn around, "Sasuke I love you and I was miserable without you. And I want to be with you and I think you want that too."

He hung his head, "I don't know if I can do this again."

"Will you at least try?"

He turned to face her, "You better……..not ever leave me again."

Hinata walked over her jewelry box and pulled out the ring. She placed the ring on her finger and smiled, "Never."

He let out a sigh of relief as he reached out and pulled her closer to him, "Good."

When he kissed her Hinata felt like this was what she was missing. Just than the door swung open and they heard Naruto yell, "There you two are! Everyone is looking for you come on there is a party upstairs!" Naruto shook his head and ran back upstairs up to the party.

Sasuke shook his head, "Now they find us."

Hinata remembered something and smirked, "By the way you were wrong before. You have done it in this room."

He grinned, "Oh really? I think I'm going to need you to refresh my memory."

He kicked the door closed again as he carried her to the bed. "SASUKE THE DOOR!"

"Who cares they'll come back for us again later. You are going to be stuck with me for a long time Hinata."

She smiled, "Sounds good to me."

~Six Months Later~

Sasuke was in the basement fixing the storage room door when Hinata walked in. "Wow you're finally getting around to fixing that door."

"Well it has been a busy six months. Did you finish unpacking?"

"Yep I just finished Mr. Uchiha."

Sasuke closed the door, "Me too Mrs. Uchiha."

She hugged her husband, "I can't believe we've been married a whole month. And I can't believe I would be happy we got stuck in there." They had relived and overcame their past and now all that was left was their future together.
