When I Look At You

When I Look At You

It was just an ordinary night. The trees were quiet as usual, the birds probably sleeping and the village quiet.

It was raining, however, that night. And she had no umbrella.

Shivering, she clutched her cloak tighter to her frame as she walked in silence. As if her body wasn't tired enough, her mind kept replaying what happened many years ago.

"Don't go...please."

The image of him, as clear as day, flashed through her mind. She never really did forget his face...or his voice.

"Thank you... Sakura."

How many lives had she saved since then? Countless.

Why couldn't she save his? Stupid, stupid man... He could've still be there with her, with Naruto, and everyone else.

He didn't have to die! He didn't have to go solo! But he chose to. And now no one will ever be the same again, because he's gone.

After a few minutes of walking, Sakura finally stopped at a certain door, fishing for her keys in her wet bag.

The door suddenly opened.

.

.

"Sakura, god you're soaking wet!"

She looked up and smiled. "It's alright. You know I love rainy days," she murmured softly as he kissed her forehead gently. Shrugging off her cloak, she walked in and sat on the living room couch.

"Did you help Lee with his wedding plans?"

"Ahahaha...not yet. I'm meeting him tomorrow," he muttered, smiling nervously as he passed her a cup of tea.

She glared at him. "You promised!"

"I did! I'm meeting him tomorrow, I swear!"

It seemed as though he managed to skitter through the interrogation, for her frown disappeared and she appeared content with sipping her tea.

"I was thinking about Sasuke today," he suddenly said. She looked up at him in surprise.

"Strange. I was thinking about him too. I wish he was here with us."

His face betrayed no emotion, but his voice did when he asked.

"If he were here, would you have married him?"

"..."

"You will, won't you." He made it as a statement more than a question. He sounded resigned as he said it.

"You really are such an idiot!" Sakura's voice suddenly rose an octave as she stood up, furious. "You really think I chose you because you were my second choice? I'm not that low to do such things!"

He fell silent as he looked down, his face distressed. "Sakura, I'm-" he began, but was cut short with her suddenly small voice.

Her body was not facing him as she spoke softly. "Do you want to know why I chose you, Naruto Uzumaki?"

"There is a song that really reminds me of what you do Naruto-kun. It made me realise that I was in love with you."

And then she sang, her sweet melodious voice clear as ever.

"'When I look at you, I see forgiveness, I see the truth.

You love me for who I am, like the stars hold the moon'"

Softly and slowly, with her eyes closed.

"'When the waves

Are flooding the shore

And I can't

Find my way home anymore

That's when I look at you'"

He walked towards her and turned her gently by the shoulders so that she was facing him.

Her eyes. They were still closed, but her lips moved. "That's when I realised, I was in love with you." Her eyes opened, and he was struck with an intense desire to kiss her beautiful jade eyes as she gazed into his cerulean blue ones.

"You are my husband Naruto, my one true love, my everything. You are mine and will always be," she whispered in their embrace.

That was when he kissed her with such ferocity and she matched it with her own. It became a long battle for dominance until they ended up on the bed.

"I love you too...Sakura," he whispered that night on the bed when he thought Sakura was asleep.

Curled up on her side with her eyes closed, her lips curled into a smile.
