Chapter notes: Okay, so this is a reply to Shikamaru's last letter to Ino. (something fragile by SaB) She's tired of waiting for him to make his mind up, and so sends him this, hoping he'll finally decide what he wants.

disclaimer: i don't own naruto

I am truly sorry for Temari, honestly. I never wanted her to get hurt in all this. But you have to stop beating yourself up over it.

It's been a week since I got your last letter, and we returned from a 3-day mission just this morning. I could barely speak to you the whole time. Choji asked me what was wrong, and I said it was woman troubles. That seemed to shut him up. It's not just him. Asuma asked me if there's something going on between us. Usually, I'd tell him anything, but I stopped myself. Because there's not anything 'going on', is there?

And that's what I've been thinking of all day. We've had some small talk, and we've trained alongside each other. We've slept just metres away from each other for 3 nights. The tension was too much for me to bare. I don't expect you to leave Temari and immediately fall into my arms: I also don't expect you too make a bunch of promises to me, especially if you're worried you can't keep them.

All I want is you, Shikamaru! I want to be able to spend time with you. I want to promise to you that I'll be there. Because in relationships, it takes both of you to make the commitment. I don't need you to look after me all the time, I need to be able to look after you.

And so I've reached this decision:

Tonight, at 8:00pm, I will be at the training grounds where we first trained as a genin team. If you want to be with me, meet me there. Take the final chance.

If you don't show, we won't have to speak about this again.

I wanted to tell you though, before you make your choice:

I think I love you, Nara...
