The Life Of A Crimson-Haired Shinigami
This is the life that I chose on my own. "I will remain a soldier until the war is won."
Crossfire ~Jiraiya 'n' Tsunade Tribute~
She sat in her desk as usual when the news came. She brought the bottle to her lips and drowned her sorrows, as fresh spilt tears poured from her eyes and flowed with the sake dripping down the corners of her mouth.

There's a still in the street outside your window
And you're keeping secrets on your pillow
Let me inside no cause for alarm
I promise tonight not to do you harm
Yeah I promise you babe, I won't do no harm

She sobbed. He was gone.... he was really gone.... She could tell him how she really felt cause it was too late.... It was always too late. Everyone she ever loved always died. She thought that maybe if she didn't let him get to her then she would eventually get over him and move on, but it wasn't like all the others. He was her first love. She'd never admit that out loud, cause she was afraid that he would be like Orochimaru did to her when she told him she liked him.

And we're caught up in the crossfire
Of heaven and hell
And we're searching for shelter
Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

She thought he felt the same but obviously not. More tears spilled from her eyes as she remembers Jiraiya's first insult/complement to her. She thought it was funny herself, but she'd NEVER let him know that... She really did like the way he showed her affection. The tears of her sorrow flooded like the rain outside literally flooding Konoha.

Watching you dress as you turn down the lights
I forget all about the storm outside
Dark clouds roll their way over town

She throw her green jacket over her couch and undid her hair. She walked into her bedroom and saw the photos on her headboard... One of Dan, Nawaki and Her, She smiled. Those memories flooded back into her brain like a ever haunted nightmare. She placed the photo back and looked next to it. The Genin picture. She sniffed as she looked at the younger version of herself and Jiraiya. She smiled at his goofy face. She noticed a slip of paper under the picture. Her heart stopped when she saw that it was Jiraiya's handwriting....

Heartache and pain came pouring down
Like hail, sleet and rain yeah they're handing it out
We're caught up in the crossfire
Of heaven and hell
And we're searching for shelter
Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Next Day

Tell the devil that he can go back from where he came
His fiery arrows drew their beat in vane
And when the hardest part is over we'll be here
And our dreams will break the boundaries of our fear
The boundaries of our fear

Sakura walked in to fine her master standing next to the window smiling.
"You asked me her, Master Tsunade?" she said wondering what was going on through her head.
Tsunade turned and sat in her seat turning around to face her.
"Sakura, Do you like Naruto?" she asked smirking.
"Like..... Love him? No, I'm afraid not." she blushed. Tsunade shook her head. "Have I ever told you the story of how I beat the living daylights out of Jiraiya when he made a wise crack about my breasts." she said sipping hour old sake. Sakura shook her head no. The Fifth Hokage smiled. "Well, The Third had administered the bell test, which I think you are familiar with, and Orochimaru and I was successful in catching the only two bells, where as Jiraiya failed. He was tied the stump without lunch." she said. Sakura remembered back when Kakashi administered that test. She and Sasuke were the ones successful where Naruto failed. She began to make a connection to what her Master was telling her.
"Sakura, don't follow Sasuke to the grave. It will be the biggest mistake of your life. Try to love Naruto. You know how he's been treated by this village. Don't wonder when you're my age and he's gone just like Jiraiya is." She sighed suppressing some of the tears threaten to spill. "Sakura, don't be foolish like I was. Naruto is Jiraiya made over, and weather you like it or not you are me made over. Just don't make my mistake. Ok," The Fifth said on the verge of losing it again. Sakura nodded and slipped out to go find Naruto.

Tsunade pulled out the letter and smiled again.

"Dear Hime,

I know you are probably gonna trash this after you read it, or you might not even read it at all. Anyways, I know that every night you close your beautiful eyes you imagine Dan sleeping next to you at night, and every time you lay your body down you think of him too. But for once I would like to confess something. Every night I close my eyes I imagine you coming through my window like some secret lover or even a teenager coming to see their lover in the midnight hour. Every since we were kids I've harbored this secret love for you. After Dan, I thought you'd lay your body down, next to mine. But you left. With no trace you left I kind of died inside. Knowing that you'd never be back. But now your back... I'm glad... because I couldn't be here if I knew I didn't get to see your beautiful face again.

Love, Jiraiya.

P.S. I love you, Tsunade-Hime
