in the end, the one he wanted was her. he didn’t want anyone else — no, not even sakura — he only wanted her.
she was the first person who had accepted him, demon and all, and welcomed him, and had always been there to offer unwavering support. she was the first person who had extended her hand towards him while everyone else ran away, blinded by fear.
even though he harbored a monster inside of his body, she had always believed in him. she had always, always believed that he would become a leader that everyone would look up to.
she had always been at his side, whether it be physically or mentally, no matter what, and she had risked her life for him, over and over, without a millisecond of hesitation.
through the years, she had loved him for the person he was, the person he truly was, and not the creature everyone else saw. she had followed him through heaven and hell, just to be able to walk beside him and hold his hand. and she had done it all for him—only for him.
