Nothing special, just felt like writing this.

I don't own Naruto.


"Naruto."

"What is it Gaara?"

"Thank you."

"Gaara we..."

"You made me who I am. You changed me and made me care for people, back when I used to kill for my own good. I killed because it made me feel alive, it made me feel like I meant something. But now caring, and protecting others has made me feel alive, I'm wanted. I became kazekage because of you, I fought because of you, I'd lay my life down for my village and my friends because of you, and I am loved because of you. I lived for my friends, it's too late to fix all the damaged I caused. But I did stop a lot of it from growing. My village is very peaceful and happy."

"Gaara I.."

"Naruto."

"What?"

"I will protect you with everything I have. I live for my friends Naruto. I live for you. And I will continue to live for you, I will never let you fall Naruto, even if I have to die."

"Gaara."

"Why say all of this now?"

"Gaara please."

"Because, Temari said this is what I should do."

"What are you doing exactly?"

"Confessing."

"Gaara we don't have time for this-"

"Temari said that this feeling I have for you is called love, and that when you're in love you confess it to the person."

"But why confess now! Why didn't you tell me a week ago? We were planning we had plenty of time to talk!"

"Because I didn't want you to be bothered by me.. I love you Naruto."

"I love you too Gaara."

"Thank you."

And with that the blonde felt the body in his arms go limp, Gaara's eyes closed. Naruto felt tears reach his eyes, as he held the bloody, lifeless body.

"Sasuke. I'm going to kill you, I promise. And I never go back on my promises, because that's my ninja way."
