Sasuke took a deep breath, knowing that Sakura's emerald green eyes were fixed directly on him. For him, he felt like as if it was a life or death decision. Once Sakura discovered his true identity, there was no backing out...
"Sakura...I think you better sit down," he said cautiously, knowing that his confession was going to knock her flat. "Please..."
o-0 Sasuke saying please? dang...tadz just sooo weird =P
Her eyes narrowed in disgust, while reached down and felt the hard cool metal in her hand. This man was definitely up to something, he was more dangerous then she'd first anticipated. If a fight was what he wanted, he was going to get what he wished for. A smirk twisted on her face. There was no way she'd lose to this amateur. Hell, she couldn't even feel his charka...
"I'm fine standing, thank you very much," she replied stiffly, shooting him a glare. "I'm not one of those weak simpering ladies you know. I don't need special treatment," she paused momentarily, before giving him a false smile. "At least not from you at any rate..."
Sasuke shot Sakura a puzzled look. She'd changed so much since he left, it was as if she was an entirely different person. The Sakura he'd known was always so cheerful, and carefree about everything. She always managed to brighten up the darkest days with just a smile, she even managed to get through his defenses and...
...capture his heart...
But the girl that stood before him was different in every possible way. Her eyes, those dark emerald eyes that had once been filled with joy, were dark and empty. That beautiful porcelain face was know hard and unforgiving, so different from the soft and loving one he remembered. Sasuke felt a twinge of guilt. Was he the one responsible this transformation of her? He felt his cheeks heat with shame, while he stared down at his feet.
He shouldn't have abandoned her for a dream, for revenge. If only he'd taken the time to explain things to her, if only he hadn't hurt her so much before he left. Sasuke sighed in depression. The damage was done, and nothing could change the past...nothing...
"Darling, that hurt," he said mockingly, placing his hand over his heart. "Are you always so cold?"
Sakura clenched the kunai tighter, while her eyes darkened with rage. He was playing with her! Who was he? And why...did he seem so familiar? Out of habit, she slowly slid into a defensive stance, just in case her mysterious stranger decided to pull on her.
"Of course," she replied casually, tilting her head innocently. "This is how I deal with 'charming' men such as yourself..." Sakura rolled her eyes in disgust. "Charming, my ass..." she thought mentally trying to force herself not to gag.
Sasuke couldn't help but chuckle softly. As much as he'd hate to admit it, he was starting to like the new Sakura.
"I'm flattered that you think so highly of me. As a matter of fact, I think you're quite beautiful now Sakura," he stated in a clear pleasant voice. "In fact...you're not as annoying as you were before..."
Sakura felt her breath hitch in her throat. Did he just say that she was...annoying? No one had ever called her that before...no one except... She bit her lips in frustration. It couldn't be, Sasuke couldn't have been here...it was impossible...
Her emerald green eyes were filled with denial, slowly she shook her head from side to side. "No...he can't be here..." she moaned pitifully, not noticing the stranger's piercing glance. "No...please...anything but this..."
Sasuke was confused. He thought that Sakura had wanted to see him...that she would be HAPPY to meet him again. Alright, she might not exactly have been overjoyed, but he didn't expect her to look like as if she was about to cry.
He reached out his hand to comfort her, however Sakura drew away instantly. "Who are you?" she hissed, caught between anger and pain. "Tell me..." Sakura was trembling with emotion, not fear. "Please..." she whispered, her eyes shining with desperation.
Sasuke opened his mouth hesitantly, "Sakura...to tell you the truth...I'm..." Suddenly a loud boom struck through the building, screams were heard from all around. The sound of trampling feet, and fear echoed around the building. From the ground a dark figure slowly emerged cloaked in a black shadow...
