Please choose one of these options.OPTION 1
- Draw my oc Ayumi (and one of your OC's AND/OR one of the contributors' OCs) together.
Ayumi must be wearing a different outfit. You can either redesign her current outfit or make a new one. It has to be an outfit for shippuuden or older.
Don't pair Ayumi with other OC's romantically. This isn't because of you, it's because of other options for this contest. I don't want to blend everything in here. OPTIONAL

If you want, please pick one of the contributors' OC's too for your entry!
- Draw a pic of Ayumi and Gaara together (as a couple), according to some fanfiction examples.
First time they met (in a few years)
Ayumi ran off the Hokage's HQ as fast as possible, carrying on her pouch the newly made maps and a small porc pasty in her mouth (her lunch..!). Swiftly, she managed to deliver a copy of those maps to Michiyo and her fellow chuunin companions before running back to the Northern Gate. The day was pratically over, signed by the last sun rays in the far distance, marking the fading blueish sky, and she knew it was about time. "Darn it, I shouldn't had run so fast..! It feels like my heart is about to pop out of my chest... Am I getting too lazy or something?" she thought, foolishly blaming her low stamina for her impatient breath and racing heart. The kunoichi sat down by the entrance and looked into the distance for a long, long while. But there was no one around or near. No one to be seen.
She began to worry.
- Doushita? The moon's almost up and no one has arrived yet... - She sighed and read her instructions all over again. - I'm on the right place, but they are late... And there's no one detectable nearby.
- Perhaps you should consider in putting your sensorial skills to test and practice a little harder...
Her heart skipped a beat, startled, or so she thought. Ayumi meeped and turned around fast, blinking at the sight before her eyes.
There he was, mighty and powerful, the Godaime Kazekage. Sabaku no Gaara, looking directly into her purple and amused orbs as serious as ever. And surprisingly, his emerald eyes were so serene and peaceful that the kunoichi mistook him for a fake, for a few seconds. "He... Looks so different..." she said to herself, silently, looking at him from top to bottom. Gaara was taller and stronger now, and really... Handsome. But more than that, he was certainly a new person now.
Curiously, Ayumi found herself blushing for no reason.
Their first kiss (I've written so many possibilities for this one... But well, here's the very first one I wrote)
"Is there a problem, Gaara?", Ayumi asked, leaning against the desk. None of them turned the lights on, but the room wasn't completely dark thanks to the open windows, allowing the moonlight to invade it. For moments, the kazekage stared at the young female in silence, at how alluring she looked under the moonlight. Ayumi tilted her head gently and asked him the same thing again. Gaara came back to reality, unaware of those feelings.
"No, there's no problem at all. I've realised that you're not in your usual self. At least my hat is still where I left it", he replied. Her cheeks turned into a soft pink, knowing she wasn't hiding her feelings correctly.
"Gomenasai. I simply don't feel like I'm worthy of having your presence with me. I wish I could had avoided your... death", she paused.
"You were away. You had a mission and you fullfilled it", Gaara took a few steps forward and got closer to Ayumi, "I learned so many things when I came back. I knew I had a very good friend by my side and I learned that my people need me. Death taught me to pay more attention to what Life has to give me. And when I woke up, you were there, in the middle of the crowd. Your eyes were filled with joy, relief and regret. I quickly realised you felt guilty for my passing, when you had nothing to do with it."
Yes, he was right. More than guessing it, his words opened her scars widely and looked into her broken heart and values. Before she could say something, Gaara approached her and held her face in his pale hands. He stared into her purple eyes, as if he was trying to speak directly at them, trying to reach her heart.
"At that moment I finally knew why. I finally understood why were you different from all of the women I get love letters from. I knew why were you closer to me than any other person other than my siblings without even trying. You cared about me before and now, you want to keep me safe. Now I know the meaning of your smile and your look, I understand your entire self. From the moment I saw you staring back at me, I knew I owed you this. I owe you this feeling I still don't know what it truly means. So in return, I want you to teach me its true meaning. I believe we owe this to one another".
Silence came. It was impossible to listen to anything else around them, the whole World was quiet. Before any of them could break that promising silence, Ayumi leaned forward and sealed his first words of love with a kiss.
Their wedding day
She heard him, her hero. And she was bored. Tsukiko was too tired and couldn't stand the idea of staying in that dressing room one more minute. And before she came up with a plan, Gaara crossed the hall right next to them.
He wasn't supposed to be there. It was his wedding day and tradition says the groom cannot see the bride before the ceremony. Things were going the perfect way until he decided to walk around the huge mansion and got closer and closer to the room where Ayumi was hiding from him with her daughter and her sister-in-law Temari. But then she heard him and she opened the door quickly, running towards the sound of her father's footsteps. Tsukiko reached Gaara's wedding robe and pulled it gently, screaming his name. Before he could look backwards and get the chance to find them out, Ayumi and Temari shut the door instantly.
"Kuso, I hope he didn't see anything!", Temari hissed. She still had to finish preparing the bride. Ayumi blushed and covered her eyes, hoping for the same.
"The problem is that now Tsukiko-san is outside. What if she tries to bring him in here? Or simply tells him that I'm in this room?", the bride wondered. The last thing she wanted to do was to ruin their wedding day. However, there she was, standing behind the door while hoping that her future husband and daughter wouldn't come in. And by the other side of the room stood Gaara and Tsukiko in his arms. the small girl giggled cheerfully, whispering secretly to her father how beautiful her mother looked.
And Gaara couldn't avoid to show a gentle smile, despite telling his first child that he would have to wait for the ceremony to see his future wife. Bride and groom stood there, so close to each other and yet so far, separated by a door and a wedding tradition, against their eagerness to finally see one another... And their daughter, innocently supporting her parents' most deepest wishes.
Only from shippuuden forward! Gaara must have already been separated from the Shukaku. (I'm trying to make this as good as possible...)
