He woke up two weeks later, in a make shift bed, after his heart to heart conversation with his father. It took him so long to realize that if that was his last breath, he wouldn't have been able to move on. Desperately he tried to move his broken body but he couldn't.

So he waited until his medic came in. To his pleasure, Kakashi found that she was his medic.

And when she reached down to heal some more of his minor cuts and wounds, he sweeped across and kissed her. He told her that he loved her and that these past few events had helped him realized that he couldn't live without her.

Too bad for him, Sakura left the tent and told the nurse that Kakashi was delirious and that they should up his medicine dosage.
