Konichiwa! This is my first fic ever, so don't be evil with the reviews. This is an ItaSakuSasu fic, even though it sounded better in my head. NaruHina, SaiIno, ShikaTema, and NejiTen are also mentioned, but aren't that important to the plot.
Bold- Either a dreaded author's note, or Inner Sakura.
Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto, but I wish I did!!
Haruno Sakura had changed. Yes, these two and a half years she had gone through a lot of changes. She was the strongest kunoichi in all Konoha, master in ninjutsu, genjutsu, and taijutsu. She was also the prettiest woman in Konoha, since she grew into her forehead and her beautiful, flowing pink hair was down to her mid-back. She was even chased around regularly by her fanboys. She was the best medical nin aside from Tsunade. She was the gem of all Konoha, predicted to be the Rokudaime Hokage, much to Naruto's annoyance. She seemed to live the perfect life.
But that was just a mask, hiding how she really felt about her life.
Sakura was sitting on a stone bench with her chin resting on her hands, deep in thought. 'This is the same bench Sasuke-kun left me on.' She thought bitterly. 'Not much has changed since then. I still love Sasuke-kun, I'm still unhappy, and I am worthless.' Inner Sakura didn't even bother to disagree,(a shocking event in itself) because even she knew this was true. 'And I'm too weak to do anything about it.' she thought hopelessly.
'Why don't you just leave then?'Inner Sakura said.
'Nani?' Sakura replied dully.
'You really should pay more attention to me! I said why not leave then?'Inner Sakura said, annoyed.
'I can't just walk out! Then I'd be an S-rank missing nin!' Sakura exclaimed.
'And…? Your point?'Inner Sakura prompted.
'I can't just leave everybody!'
'Sasuke-kun did and he broke your heart in the process. Besides, what have you got to lose?'
'My life!' Now Sakura was the one getting annoyed. 'Now, if only I had some duct-tape…'
'I heard that!'Inner Sakura snapped.
Despite the fact that it was a beautiful spring day, Sakura felt miserable. She got up from the bench and started to walk home, thinking that her inner might have a point. As she looked around she saw Naruto walking with Hinata while holding her hand and laughing. Hinata was laughing too. Sakura just sighed and kept walking. 'Everyone seems so happy,' she thought, 'They don't really need me much at all. Naruto's got Hinata, Ino has finally gotten together with Sai, Shikamaru has discovered that troublesome Temari is a great girlfriend, and Neji and Tenten are practically engaged. And I'm all alone.' She trudged on slowly, just wanting to get away from all the happiness that she wasn't a part of.
She arrived at her house and went straight to her bedroom and sat on her bed. She clutched a hand to her heart. There must be something she could do to make this pain go away. But alas, no there wasn't. She'd tried healing it with all the jutsu she knew with no avail. Something just seemed to be missing in her life. There weren't even any missions lately to distract her from these thoughts. 'Come to think of it, the others are getting more missions than I am. Am I just fading into the backround?' She sighed. 'I feel like I felt when I was a genin again. Jounin aren't supposed to feel like this! There must be something wrong with me.'
Later that night, she found her self packing her backpack. She had her portable sleeping bag, several months worth of food, a fair amount of kunai, some shuriken, healing scrolls, soldier pills, and, surprisingly, her picture of Team 7. She tied her forehead protector in its usual spot, slung her bag over her shoulders and started to walk.
She met no opposition as she reached the main entrance to Konohagakure. She paused for a moment. Only a moment to look over her shoulder to look at Konoha for one last time. Then she walked right out of the village without a second thought.
Ok, I know it's not good but trust me, it get's better!! And longer. This is just a tester. Now, see that button? Come on, you know you wanna press it!! I'll give you a cookie!
