'I can feel you falling away

No longer the lost
No longer the same
And I can see you starting to break
I'll keep you alive
If you show me the way
Forever - and ever
the scars will remain
I'm falling apart
Leave me here forever in the dark'

Hinata and Temari's relationship flourished.
The formerly shy girl became great friends with Zaku, Naruto, Choji, Tenten, Lee, Ino, and Kiba. With Temari, she was happy beyond words. Every night, before bed, they would lay together, Temari's arms around the smaller girl.

Three months into their relationship, Hinata had told the blond about everything. Her life at the Compound, her cutting, everything. Temari listened and held the girl closely. Her heart burned for revenge, but that would make her no better than those who had done that to her love.

In turn, Temari had told Hinata of her own life.
Temari had confessed that Hinata was her sole purpose now. Needless to say, Hinata was quite shocked to hear this. The blond confessed of the terrible loneliness she had begun to feel. The emptiness.

Hinata understood, of course. She had been lonely, empty. Friendless. Yelled at every day.

Temari had gained purpose by coming to the university. Her purpose was Hinata.

Months later, as the first year of school came to a close, Hinata told Temari that since she had no where to go, she was going to stay and do summer classes, that way, she would finish in about four years, as opposed to eight. Temari smiled at her and said then she would stay too, she would just have to go see Gaara and tell him her life had taken the most wonderful turn. That it was unlikely that she would be spending as much time at home as she used to.

Gaara, did sound happy to hear that, and told her to stay safe.

And thus, began Hinata and Temari's life together.

Nine months into the relationship, Hinata told Temari she loved her. Temari returned the feeling.

On their one year, Temari proposed to her. Hinata accepted.
They decided to have a small ceremony on their one and a half year anniversary. By then, it would be about winter break. And they would have time.

Temari wore a tux, Hinata a deep purple dress.
Their friends attended, along with Temari's siblings.

It was simple, their kiss, loving. Afterwards, They laid together in Temari's bed, just laying together.

"I love you," Temari said softly.

"I love you too," Hinata replied just as softly, twisting around to give the blond another soft, loving kiss.

'Give me a sign

There's something buried in the words
Give me a sign
Your tears are adding to the flood
Just give me a sign
there's something buried in the words
Give me a sign
Your tears are adding to the flood
Just give me a sign
There's something buried in the words
Give me a sign
Your tears are adding to the flood'
