This short story is based off of Gaara's story. I thought it was an excellent writing base to go off of.

Empty.

Emotionless.

Cold.

Tears stream down my face as I stand over the life that has never really held much importance within my heart.

My life is utterly empty.

I often find myself standing alone. 

There's nothing left for me, really.

It's quite hard to live a life where no one loves you.

Especially after you discover that your parents never did love you.

Never cared for you.

Never felt grateful for your existence. 

So here I am now. Standing in this empty black space that I call home. 

 

But is it really?

 

I often ponder my own existence. Who am I meant to be? What is my purpose in life?

Well, I often come back to the same conclusion. 

It's not an answer, really. Just a statement of confusion.

I do not know.

 

And then there was the time that my uncle also rejected me. 

He tried to remove me from this world.

But failed. 

 

Then, as I stood over his passing soul,

I inquired why he had tried to kill me. 

He replied, and said that he was hired to do so.

 

But why? I asked him. You must have had the decision to refuse him.

I did, he said. But I accepted the offer anyways. You were the one that killed my sister because of your very existence. I could have loved you. I tried. But I failed.

No! I said in disbelief.

No one can ever love you, he said.

And then he was gone.

 

Ever since that moment I have lived my life believing those words to be true.

 

No one can ever love you.

 

But then I met a friend.

A friend who understood the pain that I had endured.

He showed me the importance of human bonds and friendships.

He cleaned the tainted lenses through which I viewed the world.

And then,

 

At last,

 

There was a light at the end of the tunnel.
