You keep trying to get inside my head....
Kankuro: I would never hurt you Ayame... I swear on my life.. I love you..
Ayame: Whatever! Men are all the same; you will hurt me! Even if you don't intend to!
Kankuro: [grabs her by the shoulders and looks intently into her eyes] Then look into my eyes and tell me I'm lying!! I'm not them
Ayame! I'm Kankuro!! You need to get over what happened back then because I'm not like the rest of them-I'm not trying to use you! I just want to be with you! Why cant you see that!!? You're all I think about- you're all I care about, Ayame! I need you.. ..While I keep trying to lose the words you said....
Ayame: [hides in her room alone and curls up in a ball against the wall] ..No... [sobs] It cant be... I cant...!! I cant love you..! I've learned my lesson! I've sworn off men...I've sworn off love.. I cant..[sobs] Be with you... [clutches her chest] It...It will hurt..too much.....Can't you see I'm hanging by a thread..?
Kankuro: [notices something on Ayame's arms] Huh..? [grabs her arm and flips it over and looks closer] Ayame...What is this..? Why..? Why would you do this..?
Ayame: They're not fresh... It was a long time ago, okay..? I was going through a phase...
Kankuro: What kind of phase do you have to go through to make you think its okay to cut yourself..?
Ayame: ..One where I was naive' enough to believe love could save me.. [looks away] To my heart- Yeah I know...That I'm losing control..!
Ayame: WHY DON'T YOU JUST LEAVE ME ALONE, GODDAMMIT! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU I FUCKING HATE YOU BEFORE YOU GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK FUCKING SKULL!?
Kankuro: BECAUSE I'M NOT GIVING UP ON YOU, DAMMIT! NOT WHEN YOU NEED ME! I DON'T CARE HOW MUCH YOU SAY YOU HATE ME- WE BOTH KNOW THAT ISN'T TRUE!
Ayame: ..And what if it isn't...!?
Kankuro: Then its just one more reason...
Ayame: [pouts]..I don't need you, ya know..
Kankuro: [glares] Ayame...I'm a ninja. I know how to tell when cuts are fresh...
Ayame:.... Oh no..My walls are gonna break..!! So close- it's more than I can take!
Ayame: [tackles Kankuro to the ground] Don't you EVER go away to the Leaf Village for two weeks without me- EVER AGAIN! YOU HEAR ME!?
Kankuro: GWAH! >w< Is this you're way of telling me you miss me..? [winks]
Ayame: As if..! [pouts and blushes]
Kankuro: ...[leans up] ..I missed you too..Ayame..[leans in to kiss her]
Ayame: Eh..!? 0////////0 [slowly melts into kiss and wraps her arms around his neck and pulls him in closer]
Kankuro: [wraps his arms around her too]
Ayame: [visions of exes and relationships in the past gone wrong flood her and shes reminded of why she never falls in love] ....!! [suddenly shoves him away and gets off of him, turns and runs away crying]
Kankuro: ..?? Ayame...? Are you..okay?
Ayame: [sobs] I..Im sorry..! I cant- I just cant..!! [runs to hide in her room] God, I love you so much, but..!! I cant trust you...There is no way we'd ever work..But I'm SO tired of turning and running away!! When love just..
Ayame: We cant keep going on like this...
Kankuro: I could've told you that..
Ayame: It's driving me crazy..!
Kankuro: Oh, you have no idea..
Ayame: [a bit of courage comes into her] Ya know what!? Im just..Im SICK of running away..! I wanna believe in love again..I wanna believe...In you..But..[sigh]
Kankuro: I'll be here when you're ready..
[pulls her close and presses their foreheads together] You know I'd wait a thousand years and more for you..
Ayame: ..But why..
Kankuro: [grins] Because you're the only girl I've felt this way about.. So its worth it..
Ayame: Kankuro... .//w//. ..Isn't safe..
Ayame: You're not safe...
Kankuro: ..What do you mean?
Ayame: No one is...Its not safe to be close to anyone...Its just.. Its so much better to be alone...where no one can touch me..
Kankuro: Is it, though..? I'm strong enough, I've always told myself...I'm never gonna need somebody else..
Kankuro: Ayame..! Look out! [shoves her out of the way of an attack and takes the blow]
Ayame: KANKURO! YOU BAKA!!!! -____- I'M A BIG GIRL DAMMIT, I COULD'VE TAKEN IT! WHY DID YOU DO THAT!!??
Kankuro: I just..[groans in pain] saved your ass, you bitch..!!! Can you say thank you for once, goddamn!!
Ayame: NO BECAUSE I HAD IT HANDLED!!
Kankuro: Why cant you just ask for help!!??
Ayame: Because I can help myself!! But I've already fallen from that hill...
Ayame: DONT MAKE ME REPEAT MYSELF!!
Kankuro: No really, I didnt hear you.
Ayame: I SAID IM SORRY MOTHER FUCKER, THANK YOU FOR FUCKING SAVING ME ASSHOLE, SHEESH!!!
Kankuro: hahaha, heard it the first time, Ayame! Just milkin' it!!! [grins] Not sorry either. ^^ And you're welcome.
Ayame: YOU ASS!
Kankuro: Yes, I have one..o3o So I'm dropping my guard...Here's your chance at my heart!!
Ayame: Hey, Kankuro...
Kankuro: Yeah, Ayame? :3
Ayame: Ya know.. I did..[looks away, blushing, pouting, and mumbling] I did really enjoy that kiss...
Kankuro: Did you now? x3
Ayame: Y-Yeah... [cant really believe what shes saying]
Kankuro: [catches her lips again]
Ayame: AH! 0/////0 [melts into his arms again, but doesn't run away this time] I..I guess this isnt so bad.... In fact..it feels REALLY good..
Kankuro: [grins through the kiss and pulls her closer once more]
Ayame: [just holds him tighter] OH NO! MY WALLS ARE GONNA BREAK! So close..It's more than I can take..! I'm so tired of turning and running away!! When love just..isn't...
Ayame: I don't want this- I don't want love- I don't want you..!!! ALL LOVE IS IS PAIN! ..Everything you want..!
Ayame: But..But I need you in my life, and I need to feel you there.. I need you to love me...[ a few tears fall] Because when you aren't there- and when you don't- I'm nothing but a hallow shell of the girl I am when I'm with you...I'm so lost...So lost.. But it's everything you need!!
Ayame: But I'm still afraid...
Kankuro: [takes her hands into his] Then don't be. Fear is a choice. Just don't be afraid anymore...You know I wont hurt you..
Ayame: I know, its just I've never gotten the happily ever after I was promised... And it's not always happy endings....
Kankuro: Well, sometimes happily ever after just doesn't work- this is life not a fairy tale.. But you know, happily ever after is still very far away. ^^ First you gotta be happy in between. You gotta learn to enjoy the good times, and use the bad times as learning experiences...Im not promising you a perfect life- Hell, I'm surely not perfect- so Im not promising you a perfect love either, but I swear I'd always be good to you.. :3 ..But it's happy in-between!! Its taken so long- SO LONG to finally see..!!
Ayame: ...I believe you..[hugs him tightly] ..Okay...[wipes her eyes a bit] I'm ready..
Kankuro: Are you serious???
Ayame: [nods] Im ready to try.. ^^ I want to be with you..I want to give us a try..
Kankuro: [tilts her chin up] I love you, Ayame.. ..That your love...Is worth..the..risk...
Kankuro: What is it?
Ayame: Ya know...[blushes, turns away] I really do love you...
Kankuro: [grins] I know. I always knew. I was just waiting for you.
Ayame: [gasp] Really..??
Kankuro: And it was worth it...[pulls her back into another kiss]
Ayame: Oh kitty-kun..[giggles] Ya know what else..?
Kankuro: Yeah, babe..? You're not safe..

I did this skit once before back in middle school, and I deleted it because I didn't like it anymore. But I thought, since this song holds such a meaning to Ayame and to this couple, it deserved another chance. ^^ Hope you like it!</b>
