Tides of Fate!
"Well this is perfect now I have you both here and can save some time" Sasuke smirked and drew his sword.
Sasori smirked and laughed slightly, "You make me laugh Uchiha, thinking you could defeat me with your mediocre skills"
"I'll show you what my skills can do!" Sasuke yelled, only earning another laugh from Sasori.
"You're too much for me Uchiha, but I'm afraid your silly antics are going to end tonight because you did the one thing NONE will get away with" Sasori smirked evilly.
Sasuke gulped and looked around for a way out. "KILL ALL THE GUARDS BUT LEAVE THE UCHIHA, he's mine" Sasori ordered smirking and jumped down as all his crew took on all the guards.
Sasori stood in front of Sasuke and pulled out his sword, "It's time to die Uchiha Sasuke"
"I won't die to you, it will be you who dies" Sasuke said almost a little confidently. Sasori rolled his eyes and swung down meeting Sasuke's sword and pushing down hard.
"You can't withstand my strength you sad excuse of existence" Sasori glared.
Sasori pushed Sasuke back and was about to send in for the kill when, Sasuke pulled out a gun and pointed it at him. Sasori froze and glared at Sasuke; Deidara let out a hardly noticeable gasp and gulped.
Sasori looked at her slightly past Sasuke and then returned his gaze back to Sasuke. Sasuke smirked and moved the gun and pointed it at Deidara, Sasori went wide eyed.
"DON'T YOU DARE!" he yelled.
Sasuke smirked and cocked the gun, "It will be so much fun to see you enraged for the first time Sasori" Sasuke laughed.
Sasori's glare intensified and his grip tightened, he was infuriated with himself. Sasori looked at Gaara and died a little on the inside, Sasori swung up and cut the ropes holding Gaara down and Gaara punched Sasuke in the face.
Sasori stood up straight and looked at Gaara, ". . . thanks" he forced out.
Gaara smirked and stood up straight as well. He glanced at Sasori, "The thanks should go to you" he said giving a look of gratitude to him.
"Now out of my way!" Sasori said pushing Gaara slightly and going after Sasuke who was trying to escape. "You stupid Uchiha how dare you! How dare you attempt to kill her" he seethed swinging down Sasuke barely blocking it.
Gaara glared slightly he wanted to be the one to kill Sasuke. But interrupting an enraged Sasori would only complicate things. He untied the rest of them who started helping with the others as Sakura and Deidara stood by Gaara.
"Gaara." Deidara trailed off staring at the back of their savior. Sakura looked at the scared blonde she was obviously worried about Sasori.
Sakura frowned and looked up seeing archers on the balcony. "Look out!" she yelled to them all. They all saw the archers and jumped off into the water as they let go of the arrows. Sasori had looked up to see them and went wide eyed feeling cold metal run right through him.
Gaara pushed both Sakura and Deidara off into the dark water and took out his sword deflecting the arrows at him and Sasori. Sasori glared at Sasuke and winced as he pulled out the sword. Shoving it right into Sasuke causing him to fall into the water and sink to the bottom.
Sasori feel onto his knees trying to keep consciousness and holding a hand to stop the blood from flowing out. Three by the three all the archers were taken out by arrows as well. Shikamaru sighed and tossed the used bow down looking at the two red heads. "Making me do stuff, I already don't like you guys" he smiled lazily.
Sasori fell down unable to stay awake anymore making Gaara freeze. They other had pulled themselves out of the water and looked at the two. Sakura stared sadly from her spot beside Gaara. Deidara bent down more water streaming onto her face as tears fell from her eyes.
"Don't die please. . ." she said quietly placing a hand on the dark spot on his back and feeling the sticky blood. "DON'T DIE!" she screamed at the top of her lungs making everyone cringe from pain of their own feeling her own remorse. Hinata stepped forward and pulled Deidara up. "NO! LEAVE ME HERE!" she yelled being forcibly lead away by Neji and Naruto.
Sakura sat in her room staring at the diamond crown on her dresser. Her father had died two days ago in the attack that had saved her life and now she was queen. The third day she was ruler over her land; she stood up and opened her door looking out into the hallway only seeing Neji walking and reading a book.
"Oi, Sakura" he said smiling a bit before continuing past her room. She sighed and came out closing the door silently behind her. Sakura yawned and walked in the opposite direction. She went out onto a balcony over looking the sea where she saw Deidara on the ledge just staring out at the ocean.
"So I hear you guys are all leaving today" Sakura spoke up getting the blonde's attention. She nodded and looked back out at the clear blue. "I think that the doctors are done. I'm sure that you can go visit him" she smiled walking beside her.
"What makes you think I want to see him" Deidara looked off to the side not wanting to look at the pink haired princess. Sakura let out a small laugh,
"If you don't want to then I'll just go tell them to lock his door so he doesn't get and unwelcome visitors" Sakura yawned turning around and placing her hands behind her head and looking for a reaction.
Deidara quickly jumped down and ran down the hallway. Sakura sighed smiling. "You realize what you're doing don't you?" Gaara's voice came from the door way.
Sakura nodded paying no heed to him. "Of course I know a lot more then you think I do Captain Gaara" she smiled and turned to the water. Gaara sighed shaking his head and walked beside her.
"You and your smarty little mouth" he smirked making her smile all the more.
"Maybe I like being smarty to you?" she rose a slender eyebrow leaning in a little closer to him.
"Really now? That's good I wouldn't like anyone who was to giving, I like to take it slow" he laughed leaning a bit down to her. Only able to see each others eyes and feeling each others breathe against their faces.
"Would if I never give into you?" she taunted wanted so bad to just lean in a bit more.
"I doubt you could"
"Probably not" she laughed and pulled him to her and pressing her lips against his.
Deidara slowed to a stop when she found the door she was searching for. She reached for the door knob and hesitated when her hand touched it. She gulped and bit her bottom lip taking in a deep breath contemplating what to do.
"Go in" she whispered to herself. "Just do it" she urged herself on again. Taking a final looked at the door she pushed it open slowly and looked in. The only inhabitant happened to be sleeping in the bed over to the right.
Deidara shut the door quietly behind her and walked over to the large bed. As she made it to the side and looked down at the wrapped up Sasori she raised a hand and placed it over her heart. It hurt to be near him, but it hurt to be away after what he had done for her. For all of them.
She fell to her knees and stared down at his face and then to his bandages covering his entire chest area. She reached toward his hand and stopped before touching it. The hand was drawn back and she began crying on the bed.
What he had done to her was engraved into her mind and no matter what she told herself nothing seemed to ease the pain. How could you possibly hate someone so much and then have the ability to love them? She felt a hand enclose around her own and looked up alarmed.
She saw his hand holding hers tightly and moved to look at his face that was staring at the ceiling. "I don't want you near me if all it brings is pain. . ." he said quietly. "I'm sorry" he whispered closing his eyes.
Deidara sniffed and rubbed her tears away on her sleeve and looked at his face almost scared of what would happen if she tried to stand. She stood slowly and he half expected her to let go.
His eyes shot open when he felt her lips on his and her hand still holding his tightly. Wet drops hit his face and she pulled away looking down at him with tear stained cheeks. "Sorry" she said wiping them yet again and getting the ones off his face. "I'm just so happy you're alright" she smiled at him.
"Thank you. Thank you for coming to my rescue" she took his hand with both of her own. "I thought you were going to die . . ." she said her voice cracking about to break down any second. She pulled it up and placed her forehead on his hand crying.
"I was so scared" she sobbed. "I thought you were going to die because of me and I . . . I didn't want to lose you" hers sobs became louder and he looked off to the side averting his gaze from her.
"Please don't ever do that again" her sobbing turned only into small hicks. He looked over at her and wondered what she was talking about. "Please don't ever scare me like that anymore" she looked him dead in the eyes.
She moved her free hand over his chest and looked at where the wound was. "Don't make me sad" she told him with tears brimming her eyes. All he could do was nod. Unable to find words to suffice a good enough answer.
"Bye Sakura-chan!" Naruto wave jumping onto the ship. Sakura waved back at him and watched Hinata, Temari, and the rest of the crew with the exception of Neji, Kiba, Ino, and Gaara.
"Bye Sakura it was nice pirating with you" Ino smiled hugging her. "Good luck ruling!" she smiled dragging a waving Kiba behind her.
Tenten came up with a bag and smiled at Sakura. "I guess we go our separate ways" Sakura smiled back sadly. Tenten nodded looking at Neji.
Neji smiled at Sakura, "It was nice kidnapping you," he laughed. "We will be sure and come back to visit" he told her.
"Of course you're my best friend I would never leave forever" Tenten was sniffing and keeping herself from crying. Neji and Tenten went onto the ship and they all looked over to the other one setting sail.
"Oi! Gaara don't be an idiot this country needs a king like you! Don't leave your woman behind to rule all by herself!" Sasori called waving at them.
"Bye Sakura! Bye Gaara! You two become little love birds alright!" Deidara called from his side. Gaara was pale and bright red on his cheeks. Sakura waved after them laughing at what they had said.
She turned to Gaara and smiled up at him. "Don't mind them," she laughed. She turned a little red; "I'm glad I got to meet you Gaara, I won't ever forget you" she leaned in and gave him a quick kiss.
He nodded and smiled a bit back at her. "I won't forget you either, this is where we part" he said sadly. He took her hand and pulled her to him kissing her deeply.
He let go and jumped on board and waved to her. She waved back blushing and watched as it started off from the docks. She sighed and turned around heading back up to her now almost empty palace.
She started up the stairs and down the hallway to her room where she saw the tiara sitting on her dresser. She stood in front of the mirror and looked down at it. She picked it up and set it comfortably on her head. Sakura looked at her reflection and gave a small smile to herself, like a reassurance.
"Well I better go get used to sitting on that throne" she sighed placing her hands on her hips. "I'm off!" she said loudly pumping a fist in the air. She walked back out and down another hallway to the throne room.
Walking in Sakura sighed hating the feeling of being alone in the palace only accompanied by guards. "I dunno, you think I'd be able to pull this off?" a voice came from the throne. Sakura looked up and went wide eyed.
There Gaara sat with the king's crown on. He straightened up and stood up looking down at her. "A queen should never not have a king" he smirked to her.
Sakura felt tears form in her eyes and ran up and hugged him tightly and he wrapped his arms around her waist pulling her closer. "I just couldn't leave you" he whispered to her.
Sakura just tried to hold him closer not even shoeing half of her happiness that he was here. "What made you come back?" she asked looking up at him.
"I told you already" he laughed and wiped away a stray tear. "I couldn't bear to leave you. So I came back and seeing as you won't come with me. I'll just stay with you" he leaned down and kissed her.
"I love you so much" she whispered.
"Not nearly as much as I love you" he smirked and kissed her again.
