OMG thank Kami this had a happy ending because it was so hard to hold back the tears while reading. I'd be a sobbing mess if Sakura hadn't made it back.

nice plot, the format was great as well... The feeling of nostalgia came over and over again, I love how SS authors made me feel like I have to explore something w/in the story, so I have to stay still... I'm so overly satisfied to read even how short a chap could be, like this.. #Thumbs up! #LongLive #SS #Writers!

It's simple but endearing

That moment when you're crying together with Sasuke. I like the implication with the statement, "you found me." It's so much like Sasuke and Sakura. This is like the dynamic of their pairing. So imperfectly perfect that they found themselves in each other. So many emotions, man!

I have to say that, no matter how many times I read this fanfiction, I keep wanting to reread it.
You have done an amazing job with this piece. It is beautifully written from start to finish and I couldn't see anything wrong with the story. You did a wonderful job!
Keep writing great fanfictions :)

Oh god. This is beautiful. I literally teared a bit at Sasuke & Naruto. Gosh. Don't ever disappear again, Sakura!

That was... That just left me speechless! :O That was beyond epic! Best oneshot ever! Even though it was just a oneshot, I felt as if though I lived through the whole five depressing months! That was pure genius, mate! Absolutely, wonderfully, amazingly epic genius!

I absolutely love the imagery that you provide. My favorite parts:
And when Naruto left, tears tracking over his whisker-marks in impotent rivulets, Tsunade opened a fresh bottle of sake and imbibed enough to stay drunk for a week. But the special brand of painkiller only lasted until Naruto's next visit, when the wounds were torn open and the salt poured fresh.
The Godaime didn't need Naruto to remind her that it was she who had sent Sakura on this mission because that fact haunted her more than she cared to admit. Sakura had become something of a sister to her, granted a much younger one, but a sister nevertheless, and the possibility that she, Tsunade, had inadvertently sentenced her, Haruno Sakura, to death was nearly more than she could bear.
Shizune was the only one who knew the true extent of the Hokage's anguish, but that was because she was the one who threw out all the empty sake bottles.
Naruto renewed his training, but Sasuke privately thought that was only so he could destroy things and let his emotions out. Sasuke found his stomach rebelling against him when he did deign to eat, and he had his head in a bush more often than he determined was natural. Kakashi could be seen tracing words on the monument that weren't there yet. Tsunade spent a lot of time blankly staring at a death certificate.
Who knew Sakura could torture them all so much?
With slow, mechanical motions, Sasuke untied her headband from around his wrist and fastened it in the proper position across his forehead. Naruto, seeing this, removed her blue one from his own wrist and copied his friend; on unspoken cue, they both jammed their fists back into their pockets, staring at the cold stone monument before them, as if daring the name to disappear.
- This moment is so... so lovely. So raw and meaningful.
It did not. Her name remained carved into the stone, and Sasuke couldn't help thinking that it looked wrong somehow. Sakura—cherry blossom—did not belong trapped in rock. The name, the word was out of place, supposed to be free and flitting through the air on the back of warm spring breezes, not forever bound to the earth.
- God, your imagery is so beautiful it almost hurts!
He could not forget that his last words to her had been interpreted as an insult. He hadn't even bothered to correct her. He would like to think that, before the end, she would have thought better of him, remembered some better time, but he knew those were few and far between. He had given her no happy memories to carry to eternity.
Bile rose in his throat, and tears seared his eyes, and her headband burned against his forehead.
Sasuke never went to Ichiraku anymore, even though Naruto kept up the tradition, ordering three bowls, two of which went untouched. He paid for them all anyway, as if that were the only way he could pay homage to her memory. He knew it wasn't enough, that finally settling this debt would never be enough, but it was all he could do.
Sasuke let out a barking laugh, his whole body quivering with the emotion's reflex, and as she stared at him wonderingly, he laced his fingers through hers and led her off to Ichiraku. When they arrived, Naruto was there, as predicted, and beside him were two steaming bowls of ramen.
Sakura and Sasuke slid onto the stools, not dropping their joined hands as they dug into their meal.
At the end, Naruto coughed up the money for her bowl, and Sakura laughed like it was the funniest thing in the world.
I'm quickly becoming obsessed with your works!
