~I don't own anything~

Naruto by Masashi Kishimoto

Time of Dying by Three Days Grace


With some help Temari unchained Shikamaru and laid him out so she could check his vitals. She could feel a slight pulse, his body was badly beaten, and he was passed out

On the ground I lay
Motionless in pain
I can see my life flashing before my eyes
Did I fall asleep
Is this all a dream
Wake me up, I'm living a nightmare

"We have to get him back fast. You," she pointed to the strongest man on her team "You'll be in charge of carrying him. You," she turned to the fastest of her group "You'll go ahead and have a medical team meet us half way. I don't know how long he as, so be fast about it,"

"Hai," The two team member said in unison. One picking up Shikamaru and the other one running ahead. Konoha was closer and considering that the man they rescued was from there she knew that was her safest bet to get help.

"Ok LET'S MOVE!"

I will not die
I will survive

Shikamaru groaned in pain, he could feel very jolt to his body as someone carried him. "Hold in there Shika-kun," 'Temari' was his last thought before he passed out again because of the pain.

I will not die, I'll wait here for you
I feel alive, when you're beside me
I will not die, I'll wait here for you
In my time of dying

"TEMARI-SAN!" Temari sighed in relief when she saw the pink haired medic run towards her. Sakura was the next best thing from the Hokage 'Everything is going to be ok now my love,'

On this bed I lay
Losing everything
I can see my life passing me by
Was it all too much
Or just not enough
Wake me up, I'm living a nightmare

Temari sat by his bedside for two weeks waiting for him to open his deep brown eyes for her "Please Shika wake up for me today," she softly whispered while gently stroking his hand "Please, for me," she laid her head down on the side of the bed.

I will not die
I will survive

"T-Temari…" his voice could barely be heard but that was enough for her. Temari's head shot up and looked at the injured man in bed for any signs that she wasn't hearing things "I thought I heard my wind," he whispered. She was close to tears

"I'm always here,"

I will not die, I'll wait here for you
I feel alive, when you're beside me
I will not die, I'll wait here for you
In my time of dying

"I love you," he looked at her with unseeing eyes, his hand slowly reaching up. She grabbed his hand and held it to her cheek. One of his fingers gently stroked her cheek "I'll wait for you,"

I will not die, I'll wait here for you
I feel alive, when you're beside me
I will not die, I'll wait here for you
In my time of dying

Temari walked away from the crowd of people who came to say there last goodbye to the shadow genius, in a daze 'It's just a dream, it's just a dream, any minute I'll wake up and be in his arms. His soft breath tickling the hair on the back of my neck, his beautiful face peaceful in sleep with his long dark brown hair slightly in his face, that annoying trade mark smirk of his…' "BASTARD!" She pulled her fan out "DAI KAMAITACHI!" Temari fell to her knees, tears streaming down her face; she collapsed on her side, crying until her tears began to slow down to a trickle. She turned to lay on her back and look up at the clear sky "You're such an idiot. Whoever said you could leave," as in response to her answer one lone cloud lazy drifted by.


I will not die, I'll wait here for you
I will not die, when you're beside me
I will not die, I'll wait here for you
In my time of dying
