Just the way you are
by: kirei na yukki
She was the invisible school nerd, main editor of the school newspaper, a wonderful musician, and the nicest girl you will ever meet once you meet her.
Uchiha Sasuke and Haruno Sakura.
Two complete opposites...
One popular, one not popular...
One rich and famous, one just a regular teenager...
Who knew they'd complete each other?
Oh right...well where to start, where to start?
My name is Sakura, and I'm the 'school nerd' of Konoha high. High schools can be soooo cliche.
Its annoying. Anyway, I have 3 BEST friends Yamanaka Ino, Hyuuga Hinata, and of course Tenten! These three chicks are popular also, and are my friends. Why? Simple, we've been BFF's FOREVER!
Aha. Yeah, I don't have a boyfriend. Single and not looking. But that all changed after I met HIM.
I was unfortunately dragged out to some nightclub. It was the 'teen night'.
Oh joy. What fun it'll be to see guys and girls rub up on each other.
Notice the sarcasm.
Ino pulled a scary face technique and so, here I was.
My glasses were hidden and replaced with contacts and my long skirts and sweaters were replaced with skirts, jeans, and other things I was 'supposed to wear'.
I decided on a pink and white thick-spaghetti strapped dress that came down to my knees.The top part was pink until it reached down under my bust from there down it was white. I guess it was something called a babydoll dress, and I had on white chinese slippers. My hair was flipped into curls.
"Wow! We did a good job!" Ino said, applying some lip gloss on my lips.
"Sure did," Tenten agreed, finishing the eyeshadow. Hinata shyly nodded and gave me a mirror.
I couldn't even recognize myself! I smiled.
"That's me?" they nodded happily and I laughed, standing up and embracing my friends, "Arigatoo,"
Afterward, we all hopped into Ino's car and drove off for the Hidama dance club.
We arrived around, like, 11 and took our seats in a booth. From the corner of my eye, I saw someone looking at me. Tilting my head, ever so slightly, I gasped.
I don't care for my status of the school.
I just do what I do to surpass Itachi.
I have some friends.
The dobe, Hyuuga, and Shikamaru. I'm not interested in any girl, I don't care.
And, since every girl in my school is a fangirl, it'd be hard to find the right one...
But I was wrong, she actually was right there.
"I told you it'd be fun to come here Teme!" the dobe yelled over the annoying music.
I was irritated.
Erotic dancing, all signaled towards me. I rolled my eyes.
"For once, I agree," Hyuuga said.
"Yare, yare," Shikamaru yawned.
He spent most of his time sleeping.
"SASUKE KUNN!" I sucked my teeth and slightly winced at the source of that annoying voice.
I really need to get a restraining order, "I have the lastest newspaper. Look! You made the front page, I'm going to go hang it in the bathroom, AFTER we have our date,"
"Hn. Get lost," I huffed. Karin frowned, but left me with the guys.
"HAHAHA! That was so funny!" Naruto laughed at me, earning him a punch to the head, "Ita!"
I smirked at being the cause of his pain and the others smirked too. I scanned the room and saw a booth in the corner of the room inside it was the most...
...the most beautiful girl I've seen. It was Naruto who saw the group she was with.
"Hey look! Its Sakura-chan!" I cocked an eyebrow.
"Who's that?" Naruto looked at me funny, "Well?"
"School nerd." Shikamaru answered simply, "But it looks like Ino did something,"
"Let's go over there!" Naruto signaled and we all got up and left our table to sit with this Sakura and her friends.
I panicked, "They're coming over here!" I screeched.
"Just let them," Ino smirked, "I can't tell if Sasuke was digging you or not,"
Unexpected and unwanted heat came to my cheeks.
Wow...it was the first time I blushed OVER A GUY! I looked for an exit to dash to but...
...kuso. Too late.
"Heyyyy," we answered (yeah, even me).
I looked down in my drink and stirred it with my straw.
"Come sit!" Tenten said, all the guys sat. Hinata & Naruto, Shikamaru & Ino, Neji & Tenten, and...
Me & Sasuke.
That darn heat came back and I felt overheated.
"Oh Sasuke! I don't think we've introduced you to our friend,"
"You didn't," he answered.
Kami-sama, his voice was just so...
I immediately felt attracted to him.
"Go on Saku-chan!" Ino chived. I made a mental note to glare at her later.
Hesistantly, I turned towards the Uchiha and gave a small smile.
"Hajimemashite. I'm Haruno Sakura," I bowed, half-thankful that I got to hide my face.
I felt something lifting my hand and looked up to see Sasuke's large, warm hand holding my smaller one. He shook it gingerly and said with his low, husky voice.
"Uchiha Sasuke," for the first time, I saw a small smile grace his lips.
My small smile grew and I gained enough confidence to say, "Doozo yoroshiku,"
(I could see Tenten giggling with Hinata and Ino from the corner of my eye.
They were so going to get it!)
Sasuke nodded his head in return and we all conversed in subjects that we all found quite funny...
...like Karin's uneven hair.
Its now 1am and I've never felt more comfortable talking to her.
Haruno Sakura is definitely the most understanding person I've ever met...
...other than Naruto. (Don't tell him I said that)
I haven't even known her for a day and we're laughing, talking, and joking around as if I've known her forever.
"Ne. Pirates are better than ninja!" Sakura argued for the 4th time in this past 15 minutes.
"Hn. No they aren't," I smirked.
We continued our 'arguement' for sometime. I learned somethings about her:
1.) She's in my grade, but 4 months older.
2.) Her favorite color is red. I really thought it was pink.
3.) She eats a lot of onigiri, just because of the umeboshi in the center.
4.) Loves reading romance novels.
5.) Has never been in a real relationship.
6.) Prefers being invisible in school.
7.) Is enemies with Karin and almost every fangirl in school.
8.) Has 3 older brothers and 1 older sister; they live in Sunagakure with her dad. (Her parents are divorced, but it doesn't get to her much)
9.) Has a pet pig named Tonton.
10.) She is the most understanding person I have ever met...and the first I have ever been close to.
Of course we argue about pirates and ninjas and tomatoes, but he talks to me about his personal life.
He has an older brother, Itachi, who's praised by his father who is oblivious to Sasuke's feelings. Sasuke's mother, Mikoto, accepts Sasuke for who he is, but Sasuke wants to be accepted by his father.
...I really like him.
10 things about Uchiha Sasuke:
1.) He's 4 months younger than me. (That's not so many)
2.) Likes dark colors like blue and black.
3.) Loves tomatoes and onigiri.
4.) Hates his fangirls (I do too)
5.) Has never been in a real relationship.
6.) Is not a morning person (...I am)
7.) His best friend is Naruto (Yeah, I figured)
8.) Prefers not wearing anything other than his clothes with his family crest on the back (The crest is a red and white uchiwa)
9.) Has a rocky relationship with his older brother.
10.) The coolest person I've ever met...and only guy I've felt feelings for. (Not normal feelings, stronger than normal)
The time came for us to leave.
It was 2 AM. Sure, it was a Friday...but I had to finish a lot of schoolwork before the next A day came around.
I did actually get Sasuke's number.
We exchanged our numbers in our cell phones and took each other's photos. (Yeah, High School Musical-ish, but this was wayyyy better)
I waved to Sasuke as he walked out of the club with his friends.
Ino smirked and nudged my arm, "Soooo. What went on between you and Uchiha?"
I smiled, "Nothing."
Well, at least nothing came from our mouths.
It was green and pink...it went with me almost perfectly.
The pleated skirt, blouse, and sailor collar was green, while the lining of the collar and the bow that tied the collar to my blouse was pink. I liked it.
I walked in and immediately bumped into Sasuke.
"O-oh gomen!" I said, not realising who I had just bumped into.
"Hn." I gasped and looked into the irriatated face of Uchiha Sasuke.
"Hey Sasuke," I smiled. Sasuke glared at me. He said:
"Go away, I'm tired of you fangirls...just leave me alone," and shuffled on, leaving me there...
...what had happened?
They always fight over the corporation and blame me for its downfalls.
That's all I'm going to say about it. I don't feel like remembering. So I'm in a bad mood.
I just fought with Fugaku and Itachi.
A fangirl attempted to say hi to me.
As I walked down the hallway, I froze as soon as I remembered who I had brushed off this morning:
All of them. They lead you on...and then leave you there in the dirt.
I knew it was just too good to be true; Uchiha Sasuke was just like the rest of them.
A jerk with a pretty face.
"I should just stay invisible," I mutter as I plug my iPOD into my ears. I listened to "Love like this" by Natasha Bedingfield.
I don't like to listen to music that describe my predicament...
...it depresses me and gives me the idea that I am more predictable than I actually thought.
We go back so far,
swingin in your back yard,
all the things that we used to do
We were cool back in high school
ooh I really liked you,
must have been your attitude.
I stalked past the basketball team, currently flirting with the cheerleaders. Ino, Hinata, and Tenten were in that bunch. As were the fangirls.
"Sakura!" Ino waved.
I pretended not to hear her. Instead, I walked on.
That's why you keep on runnin
in and out of my mind.
As the years they'll roll by,
Baby, now I know why
I keep comin back to you.
My eyes were closed and I walked past the jock crowd. I didn't see it...but I did feel it---Karin chucked a basketball at me.
"Ack!" I fell...and unfortunately, it was towards the stairs.
Right before I tipped into my death, I felt strong arms wrap around me. My earplugs were out, hanging, and I looked up and saw those eyes.
"Hn. You should really watch where you're going...you're so clumsy Sakura," Sasuke smirked.
My legs immediately turned into jelly.
"Oh, now you want to talk to me?" I glared lightly at him.
Sasuke stayed quiet and I sighed.
"C'mon, let's go talk about it," I knew something was wrong. I took his hand and led him to the music room where I spent study hall in.
Sasuke sighed and quietly told me the story of his fight.
"...I just don't think I'll ever be good enough for anyone," Sasuke muttered, sitting on the piano chair. I bit my lip.
That is the saddest story I've ever heard...well, when it came to family problems.
He just wants to be accepted.
Well, me being a girl did the girly thing...
"Oh Sasuke!" I cried and hugged him, "You don't have to improve yourself, you're perfect just the way you are!"
I heard him give a sigh and slowly, to my surprise, embrace him back.
"That's not what most people say," he muttered.
I sniffled and hugged him tighter, kami-sama...I'm such a girl!
"Then again," he continued, "you aren't like most people,"
I released him to look at him, "Wha---"
I was interrupted when he kissed me. My heart raced, my face got hot, and I returned the love.
"Sakura--arigatoo," Sasuke whispered to me, smiling lightly.
I giggled and pecked his lips, "You're welcome,"
We walked out back to our friends...holding hands. Ino, Hinata, Naruto, and Tenten gasped while Shikamaru and Neji smirked.
"Oh so what do we have here?" Ino giggled.
We both blushed and I smiled when I felt his arm drape around my waist and pull me closer to him. Sighing in relief, I leaned my head onto his shoulder.
"Nothing much," I answered, watching Sasuke smirk from the corner of my eye.
The 8 of us walked to class, talking about the usual stupid stuff (even pirates and ninja!) and even though we were walking together, Sasuke and I straggled a bit behind to talk amongst ourselves.
"Sakura..." he asked.
"...did you really mean those things you said about me?" we stopped and I looked up at him.
"Of course I did...I like you just the way you are, you're perfect," I smiled watching him blush lightly.
For once, I was glad to be just me...
I was fine just the way I was...
Did you like it? I hope you did. Okay now, on to the ranting section.
Time: 7:25 PM
Rant start: 7:26 PM
Okay, now I don't know why in the world people even like this couple. Along with SasuHina and SasuTen. They're nonsense pairings!
I was surfing through some posts on IMDB and these people were saying SasuIno was the best. They were like 'SasuSaku sucks. Sasuke never said he liked Sakura so it makes me sick to my stomach! And if he liked her, why'd he leave her?' and about SasuIno: 'Its perfect! Sasuke knew Ino liked him...'
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.
No one cares about SasuIno.
Get over it.
Ino won't get Sasuke. And she's no closer with him than she is with Shikamaru.
Okay no. She is closer. But I'm sooo annoyed.
My answers are simple:
1.) SasuSaku doesn't suck. And if you don't like it, you can go die somewhere.
2.) Sasuke is stoic. He wouldn't even say you're his comrade unless he had to, so what makes you think he'd tell Sakura he likes her when he has someone to kill?
3.) If SasuSaku makes you sick to your stomach, then you know what SasuIno does to me.
4.) Sasuke left Sakura, BECAUSE he liked her, silly rabbits. Start reading in between the lines. If he took Sakura with him, the Sound 4 would've killed her anyway.
5.) Sasuke KNEW Sakura liked him too, and he probably liked her back. Sasuke's not the type to show his true feelings (unless its about killing Itachi) but little hints were given in the manga showing that he somewhat liked Sakura.
Yes, he did care. I'll say that though.
So, refer to Ch. 1: say no to SasuOC AND SasuIno!
Rant end: 7:38 PM
Next time's rant: Author inserts & Mary Sues.
Author insert-when an author puts themself in their own fanfiction and basically throws the characters and plot out of wack. This idea IS wack, no matter the circumstances.
I don't care how good a writer someone maybe, don't do author insert...unless the story isn't about you and you don't say a single word. You can describe yourself you know, as a person walking with someone else or holding hands or something but other than that: NO!
Mary Sue-imaginary characters who are absolutely perfect. Beautiful, stylish, powerful, intelligent, holds a terrible past or something quite similar to the person they are paired with (refer to ch. 1 of 'Aishiteru')
Okay, thanks for reading my rant and even more importantly, my one-shot! Much love to you all :) please review!
