You Are Not Alone

By Blue_Heart_Burning



"Did you hear?" a male voice said as a girl with brown hair with a sharp blonde streak as her fringe walked passed. She had bandages wrapped around both wrists covered by blue bangles, a black bandeau with beads hanging like dripping rain and tight black shorts. A blue sash was tied around her waist with a shaved metal plaque on the front, looking as if a symbol had been scratched off. She had a white sleeveless trench coat that stopped mid-calf. There was no buttons and the zip was broken, leaving it to hang open revealing the top of the red coloured kanji for love tattooed on her left hipbone. She had on blue ninja sandals. "Gaara of the Sand went to the Hidden Leaf for the Chunnin exams." He finished informing his friend.

The girl stopped walking.

"The demon-child?" The man's friend sounded disgusted. The girl's fists clenched. "I used to belong to the Sand, and that child is nothing but trouble. He should not be allowed to be a ninja."

Before the man who first spoke could reply, the girl had spun and smashed her fist into the man who insulted Gaara's face.

"What the hell!?" the first man exclaimed. He looked at the brunette girl with the blonde fringe. She had her had down, causing her face to be shadowed as she shook with anger.

"Don't." She stated. Her fists tightening, causing blood to drip. The injured man looked up in fear. "Don't you ever insult Gaara!" She yelled, lifting her head to reveal the icy glare she was aiming at the fallen man. Her hair was pushed forward by the wind; covering her face and making her seem both ethereal and haunting. Her lashes were thick, surrounding her different eyes. Her left eye was golden whereas her right eye was dark amber.

As she turned away, glaring down so only the dark amber eye could be seen, she sneered "I'll end you if I hear another bad word about him. You got it?"

The man hurriedly nodded as she walked away, only feeling a little guilty. She tended to be over protective of her friends. As she walked down the path to leave the village she was in, the only thing running through her head was the lonely redhead she missed dearly.

"The Hidden Leaf?" she mused quietly to herself as she walked. "Looks like I'll be visiting my father's grave sooner than his anniversary, then." She paused outside the village walls and looked towards the clear sky.

A whispered "Gaara." Floated across the wind, the longing hidden behind the voice's determination.

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

MegaRogueLegend666: I love this story so much. It's impossible to describe my excitement with each new chapter in words. The author has such a good writing style, very good descriptions of the fighting and character descriptions/emotions. the plot is also amazing! This fanfic could be a side anime show or novel ......

mrh: I love this story soooo much! This is such an incredible twist on Harry Potter's story. I have loved every word of it. I hope you will write more soon! I want to know what happens next sooo bad! Please write more!

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

marycombs14: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

Roger A. Fauble: Excellent read, the only thing not to like is that I could only read it at home on my computer. I'm a character reader, I get into the characters, their story, who/what they are. In this story characters are introduced and developed allowing you to really get into them. Next the story is develop...

Charlie_8472: Recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give this a read. As a hobbyist blacksmith, the blurb certainly caught my attention. I found the sentence about them drinking, dancing and fighting a strange combination of activities, perhaps a reflection of the writer’s personality and humour. Howeve...

Yun Chang: I think what I like the most about this story is the unconventional plot and the unconventional hero. But hero isn't really the right word for the protagonist, is it? The protagonist is at the same time more noble and more barbaric than a normal hero; not necessarily someone you would admire, tho...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...
