~*A beautiful Rose For A Beautiful Girl*~Shikamaru one-shot.
"Hey Yumi, what's wrong? You seem so sad." Sakura asked as she met up with me in the halls on the way to History class.
"Nothing, don't worry about it." I replied.
"Alright. You happy? Valentine's day is in two days! You and Kankuro gonna do a little something extra?"
"We won't be doing anything together anymore! He dumped me!" I yelled.
I ran off down the hall. I stopped when I got to the roof where I normally went to cut class. I sat on roof crying with my knees hugged to my chest. I heard the bell ring after a long time of crying. Next period started already? I just kept sitting there.
"I knew you would come up here."
I looked behind me to see Shikamaru standing there. He sat next to me.
He wipped the tears away from my face.
"Nothing has you crying?"
"Sometimes nothing can do a lot to a person."
"Seriously Yumi, what's wrong?"
He wrapped an arm around my shoulders and pulled me close to him. I blushed a bit at this. Shikamaru was always worried about me. He never liked it when I cried.
"I already told you. Nothing."
"Mhm, fine. Whenever you want to tell me the truth. You know where you can find me."
The late bell rang.
"Your late." I said.
"So are you."
"I'm not late. I'm just, not going."
"Why? Don't you want to see Kankuro?"
"You two fighting?"
"In a sense, you can say that."
He just nodded as I rested my head on his shoulder. Yeah, he had me that close to him. I could even hear his heart beat.
"We really should get to class though." He urged.
"Since when do you care about my education?"
"Since you started to fail."
He chuckled a bit. I blushed even more.
"You haven't noticed that yet?"
"I just throw the report cards out after I let you look at them."
He just smiled and shook his head.
"You can really cheer a person up, you know that." I said.
"I thought nothing was bothering you?" He gave a confident smirk
"Well, there isn't. So don't worry."
"You can tell me you know."
I looked up at him and sighed.
"Kankuro dumped me." I admitted.
"What? Why did he dump you?"
I shrugged and started to cry again. He held me close in a hug. I hadn't noticed at first but, I soon did. He had pulled me into his lap that I was facing him. He had his arms wrapped around my waist while I cried into his chest. He was always there for me when I needed him. He rested his head on mine. I pulled back a bit and looked at him. He wipped away the tears again, tracing my lips with his fingers in the process.
"Thank you Shika." I said.
He just smiled and moved some hair from in front of my face. I smiled and just looked at him. The bell rang again. Damn, school moves fast. I still felt really hurt from Kankuro. I mean, me and Kankuro were going out for almost a year and he just dumps me like I was nothing to him.
"We better get going." Shika finally said after like five minutes.
He helped me up and we left.
Next day - At school - In home room - Free day for Valentines day - On Friday
the girls all chirped about how they wanted to get a rose from someone. The school did it every year. You can get a rose for someone you want with a special message in it. You can put your name or make it anonymous. Either or is great. Kankuro got me a rose before.
"Who do you want a rose from Yumi?" Ino asked.
"Leave me alone."
The people walked in holding roses. Almost every girl got one. They left pretty quick. Guess who didn't get one? That's right, me. I kinda figured that I wouldn't get one. A boy came back in the room with a single red rose.
"We forgot one."
I figured Ino or Sakura would get one. They had like a zillion already. Instead, he handed it to me. I took it and looked at the card. It read:
A beautiful Rose for a beautiful girl
It didn't say who it was from though. I had an odd feeling I knew either way. The bell rang for first period and I took the rose with me to the roof again. I only sat there. I heard the door open.
"Up here again I see."
Shikamaru sat next to me. He looked at the rose.
"Who's it from?" He asked.
"You know who."
He smiled a bit. I looked at him and gave him a hug.
"Thank you Shika."
I moved back and he pulled me in his lap again, facing him. I smiled, letting the rose fall to the ground as I wrapped my arms around his neck. He wrapped his around my waist leaning his forehead against mine.
"I love you Yumi."
"I love you too Shika."
He gave me a kiss on the lips. The door opened again.
"Hey you two! Your not supposed to be up here!" A man yelled.
We split and laughed a bit.
"Guess we'll see each other a lot for a while now." He said.
"Tell me about it."
We got up and walked to the main office with the guy scorning us about being on the roof. Shikamaru's note in the card kept running through my mind. I think I can forget about Kankuro. As long as I have Shikamaru by my side.
Hope you liked it.
