Age: Sakura-21, Sasuke 22
The magnificent sun arose in a show of incandescent yellows, radiant oranges, and blood red, with a touch of soft cotton candy clouds. The dark mysterious mountains wrapped the billowing forest in it's protective embrace. And this is where my story begins...in the grand city of Tokyo..
The morning rays fell gently through the windows, rousing the world from their slumber. That is, save for a very sleepy pinky haired women.
Sakura yawned weakly as she forcefully opened her eyes and glanced towards the alarm clock. Her jaw dropped in surprise, and shock. "OH SHIT!" she cursed, jerking awake. She quickly scrambled out of bed. However she tripped and landed hard on her ass in a tangle of sheets. "I can't believe I'm late!" she half screamed, trying to unsuccessfully free herself of her prison.
Of all the days she could have chosen to sleep in! Why did it have to be today! Sakura all but ran towards the bathroom to quickly get freshened up. "DAMN! I'M LATE!" she hissed, trying to comb her long silky hair, and applying a thin amount of make-up.
She smiled lightly when she recalled why today was so important. Her best friend was getting married! Sakura's eyes sparkled dreamily. It had been years since she'd last seen Ino, ever since she's moved to Tokyo, they've become a bit distant. She laughed softly. It wasn't like as if Ino could be blamed for that, she had a fiancée to worry about. Sometimes, friends tend to drift apart....even the best of friends.
How she wanted to meet Ino's so called perfect boyfriend, the ever famous Shikamaru! She'd heard so from Ino about him, from what she was told, he was by far the most drop dead gorgeous guy in the universe. Then again, Ino had a habit of exaggerating things, and blowing things way out of proportion. But no matter what, she was going to make her own decisions about him. Like whether or not he's worthy of Ino's affections.
Sakura's eyes darkened slightly. The last thing she wanted was to see Ino hurt, and she damn well wasn't going to stand around and let a guy break her best friends heart. And if she found that Shikamaru was acceptable...then she'd give them her blessings. A playful smirk played on her lips. But if not...
...he was going to pay a hell of a price...
She jumped in shock when she heard the clock strike eleven. Sakura shook herself out of her trance and jumped once again into action. She reached out towards her tote bag and automatically turned towards her wardrobe. Suddenly, everything from blouses to socks were being flung gracefully through the air, while they landed in a tidy pile in her bag. Sakura lifted an eyebrow in amusement while she studied her bag carefully. The whole entire bag was so swollen that it looked like as if the smallest poke would cause it to explode.
Sakura carefully edged towards the bag and gently picked it up. She wasn't going to take any chances of all her clothes spilling onto the streets. She grimaced slightly, while she tried to walk, feeling weaker by the second. "Why did I have to bring so much clothes?!" she grumbled to herself, while she helped herself into her car. Before she drove off towards the airport....
Ino paced around the room intensely. Her small shoulders were hunched together, while her fingers were curled tightly into fists. However on her face, she wore an expression of panic, and excitement. Today she was going to see Sakura again! They've lost touch a bit over the years, but they still were best friends.
Nothing was going to come between their friendship. A confident smile lit her angelic face. Nothing could come between them, they were going to be friends forever...But Ino glanced down at her feet. She wasn't sure how much Sakura had changed over the years...sometimes she wondered about how she was doing. The Sakura she'd known was always so fragile...so innocent. She never had the guts to stand up to anyone...she always needed someone to be there for her...someone to take care of her.
But now...after all these years, Ino had gotten use to defending Sakura. She wasn't sure whether she would welcome the change with open arms...or whether it might break them apart. She shook her head in disgust. How could she think like this? She wasn't going to give up on Sakura, even if she'd changed. Alright...it might take a lot of effort, but she'd learn once again to accept Sakura for the women she'd grown into, not the girl she'd once known.
Ino suddenly felt strong muscular arms around her. She giggled playfully before turning to face her fiancée.
"Are you alright?" asked Shikamaru, studying her face carefully. After spending a few glorious years with Ino, he'd become familiar with her mercurial attitude. She was like an open book to him, he understood her...in a way that no one ever would.
"I've fine..." she whispered softly, leaning in to give him a gentle peck on the cheek. When Shikamaru shot her a skeptical look, she sighed and muttered, "I'm just a bit worried about today. I hope she likes it here..." Ino waved her hand dismissively around indicating the house. "I haven't seen her for such a long time..." she wined pathetically.
"And you miss her?" finished Shikamaru, gently stroking Ino's blonde hair. "Look, you're already under enough stress already..." he stated calmly, staring deep into her sapphire eyes. "You don't need to worry about her...I'll make sure she's satisfied with everything."
"As a matter of fact," he said brightly, ignoring the curious look on Ino's face. "I'm going to make one of my friends in charge of being her tour guide." He smiled and pulled Ino closer against him. "So how does that sound, darling?" he said softly, his breath tickling her ear.
Ino frown. "I've met your friends...and they're not exactly the most friendly people around," she said weakly. Images of Sakura running out of the house screaming bloody murder was playing over and over again in her mind. "I don't think that's such a great idea..."
"Oh course it is!" retorted Shikamaru. "My friends aren't nice to just anyone..." he said defensively. "You have to earn their respect, and it takes time. Since we're getting married, I think it's important for our friends to get along." He rolled his eyes in annoyance. "Do you actually think we could have a peaceful marriage if our best friends are out there murdering each other?"
She sighed reluctantly. Although she hated to admit it, Shikamaru had a point. As much as she wanted Sakura to enjoy her stay, she had to worry about her own well being...her future. If getting married with Shikamaru meant that she had to make some sacrifices...she was going to do it. She and Shikamaru were made for each other...and nothing...not even her friends were going to stand in her way.
"Alright..." she huffed. "Which one of your demonic friends are going to torture..." she coughed mockingly. "I mean be Sakura's tour guide?"
Shikamaru forced himself to remain stoic. Inside he wanted to laugh his head off, Ino was so funny at times. "Well...the lucky guy is..."
