He's Familiar, but I don't Know him

Chapter Seven: The End

(Rhiana's Pov)

"Rhiana, wake up!" I slowly and painfully opened my eyes to look at the voice and saw Neji, Tenten, Naruto, and Lee above me. I saw Sumaru was next to me still unconscious.

"What happened?" I asked.

"Akahoshi blew up the building you and Sumaru were in and then I beat him!"

"With the Rasengan?"

"Yeah! With the Rasengan." I smiled and sat up slowly on the rubble. "We're going to take everyone back to the Leaf Village for Grandma Tsunade to check up on," he continued and I slowly set a glowing finger on Sumaru's forehead. He woke up and looked at me. I smiled and helped him up.

"How are you feeling?" I asked.

"Better." He still seemed sad and I knew why, but I also knew I was going to make it better.

"Naruto," I said, turning my attention to him. "Take everyone back to the village. I have something I need to do." Everyone looked confused as they started leaving and once I was alone, I turned and hurried to the rubble.

(Back at the Leaf Village)

"Thanks, Shizune."

"It's not a problem Rhiana," she said as I got everything situated on my clothes. "Are you sure though, that you want to leave?" I nodded and she sighed. "Lady Tsunade and I are going to miss you." I smiled.

"And I'm going to miss you, but I need to go back to my original village. Is Tsunade being hard on my parents about their lie?" She nodded and I sighed. "Tell her I told you to tell her to be nice. Is Sumaru still being checked out?" That time she shook her head.

"He should be over at the balcony area if you know where that is."

"I do." I left the room with one last thanks and went to where Shizune said Sumaru should be. He was there still alone. "Sumaru." He looked over at me and I leaned against the rail next to him. "How is everything?"

"Good." He seemed distracted though.

"I heard Mizura is going to be alright."

"I'm glad he is." He was still seemingly distracted and I sighed, frustrated.

"What's bothering you?"

"What you said last night. About not knowing the whole truth of things about what you said with my mother."

"I'll tell you on the way out of the village." I went to look away from him to gaze outside, but his hands stopped me from it. I looked back into his eyes confused.

"Would I be able to tell you something right now?" I nodded, distracted by.... everything about him, but of course that changed when he moved closer. When his lips met mine, I wouldn't have been able to tell you what I had been thinking, only that I kissed him right back. His hands slid down from my cheeks down to my shoulders, from there to my waist where he pulled me closer to him as our lips started to move with each others and I had my hands resting on his chest. I couldn't seem to catch my breath when he let go of the kiss, though he held me close to him still.

"Do you actually-?" He nodded. "Even after I basically killed off your mother?"

"It was her choice either way. It's not like you forced her to. Plus, I've had this feeling since I was like ten." I grinned, despite my shock.

"I have for such a long, long time. I even had dreams about you when I had lost all my memories." I rested my forehead (with the headband on my forehead) on his and he gave me a light kiss before letting go. I heard Neji leaving and sighed mentally. I did feel bad for him, even though I definitely didn't like him like I used to. Mizura and Hokuto showed up a few moments later.

"Are you ready to leave, Sumaru?" Hokuto asked and he nodded.

"So is Rhiana."

"Rhiana's coming back with us?"

"I am," I answered and pointed at my headband. "I have the headband so it doesn't really matter." We started walking out of the building and were just finishing our conversation when Naruto ran in front of us.

"Hey guys! Rhiana, I heard you were leaving and I heard that Mizura's going to recover well!"

"He is," I answered, "and I am leaving."

"I'm still not going to lose to you." We all turned to Sumaru.

"What's that supposed to mean?"

"It means I'm going to become the Hoshikage before you!"

"Oh yeah!"


"I'm not going to lose to you!"


"I'm going to become the Hokage before you and that's a promise!" I grinned and put my arm around Sumaru's before trying to pull him away.

"Come on! I have a surprise for you."

"A surprise?" he questioned as he started walking away with me. I nodded. "Were you expecting what I did?"

"No, I wasn't. It was to make up for killing off your mother." He grew slightly sad and said nothing as we walked. He only took my hand as we walked and I blushed. He laughed and I looked at him with a sort of pouty face. "It's not nice to laugh at someone."

"Do you want me to make it up to you?" I grinned.

"Maybe." He stopped me and pulled me to him. I didn't grow nervous this time as our lips moved together and this time I put my arms around his shoulders to pull him closer. Sumaru broke it earlier than last time and I could understand why. We were in the middle of the street in a huge crowd. I took his gloved hand and pulled him along, licking my lips for a moment before we reached the gates. "You can come out!" I called after we stood outside of the village.

"Who are you calling?" he asked and before I could answer, she walked out. "Mother..." He let go of my hand and went into her hug. "How?" he sobbed. I stood there while they hugged and cried with each other for a moment.

"Rhiana gave me this Jutsu she had made up and it made her able to bring me back from the dead." He looked at me for a moment and then smiled. He was grateful, that much was obvious.

"Lady Natsuhi!" Hokuto ran over and Mizura stood there for a moment before coming over as well. "How-"

"I'll explain tonight at the Star Village. Let us head back there."

"But you need to be checked out-" She shook her head.

"Rhiana already did it. Come on, let's go." Sumaru was next to her and I was next to him as we started walking. I knew exactly what Lady Natsuhi was thinking and I knew she was going to talk to Sumaru and I about us, but I didn't care. I was finally home.... with my family. My real family.

THE END!!!!!
