Try to break my muse in five words or less.
She had fought her way back in the room. Tsunade had seen her resolve and hadn’t stopped her as she began to fly through the hand seals for that jutsu, Chiyo-sama’s legacy. After all, how could anyone stop her when they’d all do it to, for their precious person. What she hadn’t expected was Tsunade placing her healing hands upon her shoulders. It wasn’t a guarantee, but it was a chance.
As her eyes began to flutter open and the rays of sun flitted past, she knew. She knew she was alive. But what about-?
She gasped her face whipping around eyes searching. Until they froze upon the face a pillow space away. Their beds were pulled together. Her eyes ran over his face taking in every detail. He was so peaceful. Her heart clenched. Was he-?
Two sets of beeps registered. Two? Two. Her monitor and his. His. It was beeping. He was alive.
Shifting closer as best she could on to her side, she lifted her weakened arm to trail her fingers down his cheek. She took him in more fully. He was bandaged, weakened, paler than usual, but he was alive. “Ka-kashi,” her voice barely above a whisper as her heart raced. Tears spilled down her cheeks. He was alive.
Silver brows furrowed, ashen lashes flutter open, and she was met with the most beautiful sight in the world. His dark grey orbs locked with hers.
She pulled down the medical mask he had been given as she smiled a shaky smile, “Kakashi, what were you thinking? You almost died. You did die for a bit.” Her voice cracked, as he silently gave her support with his gaze. “I thought I’d never get to tell you,” her hand cupped his cheek, “Kakashi, I-“
His hand rose to cover hers upon his cheek,
“Will you marry me?”
Her eyes snapped back to his, searching. Was he serious? Did he really-? “I- I,” she swallowed as her voice shook. She found nothing but sincerity in his eyes. “Yes, Kakashi, yes, I will,” closing the gap between them she wrapped her arms carefully around his waist, her head nuzzled under his chin, “I love you, Kakashi.”
