A/N: The whole idea just popped into my mind when I had trouble sleeping one night… I hope this fic will somewhat catch and satisfy the tastes of the SasuSaku fans out there…
Guys, hope you love it! I will really appreciate if you'll give reviews and support me once again.
Anyways, thanks for all the wonderful reviews for "Tears of Memories"
You guys rock!
The bright midnoon sun scorched their skins while they were resting under the shade of the school camp of Mikado High, and the late-summer heat was brutal even there. Haruno Sakura drifted into one of her many dreaming sessions, again of her and Sasuke having a romantic heart to heart talk while wandering all over the far-reaching school grounds. Her old rival, Yamanaka Ino sat across from her on the benches behind the ample cherry tree, the pink petals of which were starting to bloom once again…
In the time-honored lunch break tradition, they weren't eating food from their own establishment; Ino had just returned with goodies from the Tabemono eatery near the street. She gave Sakura her requested soda and chips, while she opened up can of diet coke. Hmmm…Lunch…
"How much do I owe you?" Sakura pulled a pink mini wallet from her pocket and handed Ino a few yen.
"No thanks," Ino shrugged, musing for a while. She noticed her friend's far away longing look, and in an instant, she realized what Sakura was thinking about. "When will you stop waiting for HIM?" She added.
"Huh? Don't tell me you're not over him yet?" Sakura snorted. Does Ino still like him the way we did a few years ago..? "Or ELSE… I'll tell Shikamaru about it!" She crossed her arms, looking away as she bit into potato chip.
Ino laughed out loud and nearly spill her diet coke. "Why are you thinking that way? I'd rather choose my lazy-butt than your ice box, you know…" She paused and in a split of seconds turned her gaze directly on her. "I was just worried about you, Sakura… I mean, it's been a long while now, hasn't it? Whatever differences we had in the past doesn't matter anymore, because you're my best friend… and I don't want to see you all bothered and sad…"
Sakura's eyes narrowed and with a sniff, she nodded. She was touched with Ino's words, and she knew that the other was really concerned about her. "Arigato," she paused, not knowing how to voice her thoughts to her long- time best friend. "I don't know, I can't understand myself anymore! I know he'll never love me the way that I love him but…" She stood up and smiled at Ino, but it was clear to the blond that Sakura was just forcing it. She knew her friend wanted to leave the issue at that.
The pink haired young lady sighed inwardly, heart clenching painfully at the suppressed tears. Here I am again. Why can't I control my tears from falling? Shimata! Damn you Sasuke…
Ino reached out and grabbed Sakura's arm, forcing Sakura back onto the bench. "Girl, you need to start a new life and face the reality… forget about him…" Ino wanted to say more, but the look on Sakura's face pacified her.
"I want to, Ino, but I simply can't." Sakura answered before standing and stepping away.
"I wish you luck and happiness, Sakura…"
