Hi! This is a fic I just thought up one day when I was thinking about what to write while watching an anime called Black Cat! If you haven't already seen it, you should really watch it! It's about assassins and bounty hunters (or, as they call them, Sweepers) with the perfect mix of violence and humour!
Disclaimer: I own the plot, though it is kinda like Black Cats!
Claimer: I don't own Naruto! Sadly, it belongs to Masashi Kishimoto!
Summary: Uchiha Sasuke is a feared 17-year-old assassin who has no mercy. Haruno Sakura is a normal 16-year-old High School student who thinks that he has a good heart. Can she turn him around, or will he remain a ruthless killer? SasuSaku! AU! Rated T for cussing and violence!
Enjoy! Reviews are greatly appreciated!
.:Start Chapter One:.
"Aargh!" another body fell to the ground, victim of the handsome seventeen-year-old standing there, sword in hand. His raven hair was turned blue in the silver moonlight, swaying in the night breeze. A cruel smirk was plastered on his face, amusement in his onyx eyes.
"Didn't stand a chance…" he spoke softly, placing his long, glinting weapon back in its sheath. He knew that, out of all the other criminals in the city, he was the most feared. It was to be expected, as he was a merciless assassin who cared for no one except himself. He stood for a moment, watching as the man's blood, which was staining his white shirt, took the shape of what seemed to be three colons (curse mark shape).
Satisfied, he turned away, glancing at his surroundings before disappearing into the night, lean-tailed coat billowing for a heartbeat. The pink-haired girl that had been watching him stood in shock for a moment, heart beating wildly. She had heard that he was fearsome and ruthless with a dark heart. But the teen she had just seen was merciless, yes, but she could tell that underneath that hard shell he had a good heart and a reason for killing.
Feeling a cold wind chill the bare skin that her short, plaid school skirt didn't cover, she continued the walk home, heavy bag hurting her shoulders. Her white school shirt clung to her, compulsory pale green tie loose. Looking up, she watched the stars, wondering where he had gone. There was an endless sea of rooftops surrounding her, and he could be anywhere. She didn't know why, but when she imagined his handsome face, raven hair, lean-tailed coat and onyx eyes, she felt an odd, warm emotion stir inside of her.
When she had looked into his obsidian eyes she had seen through the amusement and found what he had been trying to hide; pain, grief and, most importantly, loneliness. Her round jade eyes reflected the stars as she stared at them in wonder, pausing for a moment. I wonder where he is…she thought, thinking of how exhilarating it would be to meet him. But it's not like he would actually like, or even want to talk to, someone like me! She saddened a bit at this, averting her eyes to the pavement in front of her as she continued on her way home. Maybe, just maybe, he might make an exception for me…
Arriving home about fifteen minutes later, she headed straight for her room to think.
"Sakura-chan! You're home!" an annoying voice greeted at her door.
"Go away, Kayoko! I'm trying to think here!"
"Fine then! I was just trying to say hello!"
As her little sister's light footsteps faded away, she plopped exhaustedly onto her dark pink covers.
"Finally…" she breathed closing her eyes as images of him swamped her mind once again. Turning over restlessly, she clutched the fabric of her blankets tightly with her fingers. Annoyance swept through her, mingling with the odd feeling from before. Shifting restlessly, she didn't register the fact that her mother was calling her until she appeared in the doorway.
"Dinners ready, and I've been calling you for five minutes!"
"You seem distracted…did something happen to you today at school or while you were walking home?"
"Hmm…" her mother scrutinised her with a knowing look.
"I'll be down in a minute…"
"Okay, but don't take too long."
Alone again, she glared at her wall, feeling that emotion swirl within her, making her even angrier. She didn't want to feel this, not at all. Every time she thought of him, her cheeks heated up. She had just been walking home, that's all. She had been innocently walking home.
The pink-haired female waved goodbye to her friends as they went their separate ways
"See you tomorrow!" she yelled, turning around, back to the school. As she walked, it was unusually quiet, the only sound that she could hear was her sandals hitting the pavement. She was used to it being quiet, as her school finished at 5.30 pm, but not this quiet. Usually there were pedestrians and late shoppers walking past, but today there was no one.
After fifteen minutes of walking in silence, a sudden yell stopped her.
"W-what do you want with me?! I'll give you all my money, just please don't hurt me!"
Gasping slightly, she changed direction and followed the terrified yell into a dark alleyway. As she saw shadows on the ground, that were getting closer with every step, she hid behind a corner and peeked out to look at whoever was there. And was amazed at the sight.
Standing there, sword in hand, was a teen who looked about seventeen years old. He had raven hair that was spiked up at the back and a fringe framing his handsome face. His onyx eyes were emotionless and he wore a black, lean-tailed coat with a black shirt and pants underneath.
"W-wait a minute," the man that was trembling in fear on the ground stuttered in fear, "y-you're…Uchiha Sasuke!"
"And?" his voice was calm and suave.
"You're going to kill me, aren't you?"
"And what if I am?"
"P-please don't kill me! I'll give you all my money, just please! I have a wife and three children!"
"Sorry…Lord Orochimaru's orders…" by now his lips were forming a cruel smirk. "Don't worry…you can watch your children…while you're in heaven!"
There was a sickening squelch as his long sword sliced through the other man's flesh, blood spraying into the air. As the man fell to the ground, dead his onyx eyes caught her own jade ones. Eyes widening, stared in shock as he turned away.
"Didn't stand a chance…"
By now she was more confused than ever, wondering why she felt a burst of happiness whenever she envisioned the handsome seventeen-year-old. Recognising the feeling, her olive eyes widened in shock. She didn't need to feel this way; she didn't want to feel this way! But alas, she couldn't control her emotions, and gave in to the realization.
Her name was Haruno Sakura, and she was in love with the famous assassin, Uchiha Sasuke.

Well, I hope you liked it! I'll probably put the next chapter up soon, and introduce other characters! Do you like it how I made Orochimaru Sasuke's boss? Please tell me what you think!
