"Returning Favors"

*

*

Sakura's kunai are buried up to the hilt in the much-abused training post that she is using.

She wears her hair short nowadays. Too short for ribbons, but the bangs still fall over her forehead and get in her eyes. It says something for Ino's influence that she will flick them aside automatically.

It says more for Lee's influence, though, that she makes a lot of stupid promises and always keeps them.

If he will protect her until he dies, then all right, whatever, that's fine by her.

She intends to do everything she can to return that favor, though.
