Summary: Of high heels and lipstick and a bud that's yet to bloom. [InoSaku friendship fic]
Here there are no boogeymen and no monsters; there is only the warm of Ino's hand on her own and the comfort of the bright blue sky above.
Ino is all curves and maturity and sex appeal, but Sakura is filled to the brim with steadfast determination that Ino is secretly jealous of; she planted that seed of strength and now it has outstripped her own.
Sakura will never, ever thank Ino for everything she's done just as Ino will never, ever apologize for the things she hasn't.
"Hey Sakura! There's no point in sitting all by yourself; come sit with me!"
They are six and prancing around in their mothers' high heels and life is perfect; they are twenty and up to their elbows in enemy shinobi and life is right.
For once, Sakura is glad that she can teach her best friend and not the other way around.
Ino is more than willing to learn.
It takes years for them to get over feud but only seconds to make them friends again.
Their rivalry is everything friends should be and everything enemies have to be rolled into one neat (if not violent) package; any way it's looked at, they make each other stronger.
"You're my bestest friend in the whole world, Ino-chan!"
There has never been a limit to Ino's boldness; she presses an enthusiastic kiss to Sakura's forehead after the girl nails her first bull's-eye.
Ino never tells her best friend that the only reason she helped her is because she felt it would be a waste for a flower to never bloom (she's always wanted to know if Sakura was really a hydrangea or an anemone).
She would turn out to be a peony, if only to throw Ino off course.
They borrow so much of each other's things that they don't even bother trying to sort it all out; there's no point in starting another fight over something pointless.
Ino built Sakura's self-esteem up from the ground; Sakura brings Ino back from death more times than she can count (and even then, Sakura owes her best friend so much).
