"What do you mean?..." Confused, he stood looking at her, his arms loosely crossed.
She roughly rubbed tears running down her cheeks, angry and frustrated that they were there in the first place.
"I mean...I don't know... She still in love with you and I'm beginning to think she is so much better for you. She is a more capable fighter, she is fearless and sometimes I feel like I'm not enough. That I will never be enough for you."
Koneko looked down, ashamed of her own insecurities and emotions.
Gaara knelt down slowly, a small smile tracing his lips. Gently but firmly, he picked up her chin so he had to meet his eyes.
"I chose you because you scared me witless." he said, tilting his head slightly.
Her eyes widened. "w-what? How?"
He chuckled lightly, under his breath. "Because you made me feel things that I didn't know I was capable of feeling." color started seeping into his cheeks. " I started noticing you around the village." his smile widened a little. "Pursuing you was a nightmare. I had never had to do that before."
"What with all the women throwing themselves at you?" she said rolling her eyes.
He ignored her sarcasm. "It's always been you.
Gaara pulled her in a little closer. "Telling you that I loved you was the most dangerous thing I have ever done."
More tears started forming in her ducts and she blushed.
He squeezed her chin slightly, emphasising his seriousness. "I've never regretted that...not even once."
His lips brushed Koneko's once before kissing her firmly.
