I sat crying in the arms of my older sister, Sora. She was not happy to see me at this hour in the morning, but she put her anger and annoyance aside when she saw that I was crying. Having never once cried this hard, she immediately knew what it was, though I never knew she knew how I felt about Deidara.

"Hana, baby girl, you just stay here and I'll give him a piece of my mind, if I see him when I get your stuff," she added at my look.

I whipped my eyes, "But I never told you-"

"Hana, I am your older sister and I know when something is wrong with you," She told me sternly, but in a sweet, caring way.

"Sora, you're the best," I smiled at her.

"I know. Here, tell me the full story and then I'll go while you sleep,"

I nodded and told her everything.

She just shook her head, "Hana, that is so you, trying to please everyone close to you, hurting yourself at any cost,"

"I know, but I love him," I looked down and paused, "I'm tired,"

Sora nodded and led me to my old room, as she still lived in our family home, caring for our aging father and her twins, Kishi and Kaida. She was so great, stepping in after mom died.

"'Night," She whispered and kissed my forehead.

She left and and I just stared at the ceiling. Just when I finally started to fall asleep, there was a soft tap on my window. Some one was throwing rocks. I sighed and went over to my window. I pulled back the blinds and searched for the culprit. I was shocked not only to see the culprit climbing up to my room on the rosebush, but to see that the culprit was none other than Deidara. He looked rather comical trying to climb into my window. I couldn't help but to giggle slightly.

"Hana, this was so much easier in middleschool," He said when I opened my window.

"Well, you did get fatter," I helped him into my room, "I don't know why I let you in,"

"Because you love me. Yeah, not winning any points," He rubbed the back of his head.

"Nope," I shook my head.

"Hana, listen, I don't want to lose you," He grabbed my arm.

"As a friend? As a wing man? As what?" I started to cry again.

"At all. Hana, you've always been there for me," He looked at me pleadingly.

"Don't come here like this after sleeping with her," I shook my head.

"Huh? I didn't sleep with anyone after our fight," He looked at me in confusion.

"Please. I saw her leaving our room!"

"After I rejected her," He told me.

"Listen, if you're trying to pull-"

I could not finish my sentence as Deidara cut me off, "Hana, I love you!"

I would have fallen to the floor, had Deidara not been holding my arm, "What?"

He smiled at me and I knew he was telling the truth. I started sobbing and hugged him. He hugged me back and released my arm.

"Deidara, I-" I looked at him apologetically.

"No, Hana, I'm the sorry one. You were right, like always, that I was blind. But I not just to ignore you, but my feelings for you," He held my hand, "Hana, I love you so much, and I hope to never lose you,"

"You won't," I smiled through my tears.

He sighed and pulled a piece of string from his pocket and tied it into a tiny circle, "Hana, I know this is far from proper and perfect, but I know what I want; I want you. Hana, would you please marry-"

I kissed him before he could finish, "Yes! Oh, God yes!"

"I know we never dated or did anything-"

"I don't care, I love you!"

The door opened and Sora came in, "What the hell is all of this racket?"

"Sora, I'm getting married!" I smiled at my sister and flashed the piece of string.

"Whoo, that must have set you back a pretty penny," She whistled sarcastically.

"Hey, I'll buy her a better engagement ring!"

"You will do no such thing! I love it!" I smiled at the impromptu ring.

"You'd still better buy a wedding ring," Sora whispered.

"That is a to do," I nodded in agreement.

"You're just lucky I love you so much," Deidara kissed my head.

We had an autumn wedding on a hilltop in the rain, just like I'd always dreamed, after dating for a year after the engagement. Our family was overjoyed and chock full of I-told-you-they'd-get-married-someday. We are currently enjoying our honeymoon on a private island and can't wait to get back and spend our lives together with our friends and family, oh, and go back to college. Tara was never heard from again.


Here is the final chappy. I hope you enjoyed the story, and I'm terribly sorry if you did not for any reason. I think I may have put them together too soon, but the only other thought I had for this chappy would have ruined the story beyond all belief. Please review and tell me what you thought about the story and if you think I should make a sequel. I don't own Naruto, Deidara, Konan, Yahiko or anything else written by Kishimoto. I do own Hana, Sora, Tara, and any other fictitious element I wrote.

Thanks again, Deida ^-^
