Summary: When Haruno Sakura's family had a nothing left with them, Sakura decided to help her parents. She applied to be a waitress... and only to be sold to the three handsome men in the town as a slave. GaaSakuNejiSasu
Sakura's eyes widen when she saw Sasuke and Neji outside her front door. How could she have been so stupid? She did not even detect any trace of their signatures?
Her fear grew. Fear for her baby.
For her newly born family.
How can this happen? But she knew this would happen sooner or later. This was giving her a headache and she felt her baby hug her tightly, afraid of the new faces.
For a moment, she got the chance to study Neji's expression.
He wore a expression that would closely resemble hurt. He looked so betrayed that she found it hard looking at him again. It would not take a genius to figure out that the child was his.
She studied Sasuke's chin for a second then decided that she don't want to see him.
Everything about him made her wanna run at her room, choke and cry.
She almost forgot that seeing him in person was going to be harder than just imagining him.
There he was, the star of her nightmares..
The one who gave her too many heartaches that she started to think that it won't go away no matter what she do..
Engaged to someone else...
She could feel her eyes tear up and her lips trembled. Sakura hugged her baby close and closed her eyes.
That stupid ass...
He still had my heart.
That was the last thing in her mind when the stress finally caught up with her, and all slowly turned black.
Neji could not take away her eyes from that child Sakura was holding. It's got to be his. That kid- Sasuke as Sakura had called him- was his child. She could feel the hatred running through her veins. Why Sakura did do this to him?
He was not there when his son was born.
Hell, he was not even there during her pregnancy. For the life of him, Neji did not know.
She did not even have enough respect (and love) for him that she ran away... with his child!
Neji frowned. His child was named Sasuke. Neji breathed out. That was okay, they just need to talk like the old times. He steeled his resolved and frowned.
Gaara surely was selfish. Gaara did not even tell him that he had a child and had a family to support...
But no, the man (his former best friend) decided to marry the girl of his dreams instead.
Why? Why did it become like this? Their once happy relationship turned out to be so complicated in the end. Why Sakura did became something like this to him? It all started like a whim. For him. For Gaara. And for Sasuke.
She was like a plaything, at first. That was until she decided to steal their poor and lonely hearts. Crush it. And ran away.
Oh, how the mighty had fallen, indeed.
Sakura had this funny look stuck into her beautiful face. He wondered what she was thinking. She should be ashamed. He could sue her for doing this to him
The latter thought was a bitter joke though. That girl was Haruno Sakura.
But even after all that had happened, he knew he was still looking forward to a future with her and his son.
Even after all that, One Hyuuga Neji would still be willing to be by her side. Anytime, anywhere.
He was startled when Sakura seems to lose control of her footing and the next thing he knew; Neji was rushing in to catch her and his child.
To say that Sasuke was shocked to see Sakura was an understatement.
He felt different kind of emotions that he didn't even know he possesses.
Sasuke felt shocked. Then came confusion. Then, anger. Then, loneliness? Or just plain pain?
She even named her blasted son Sasuke. He was a man with feelings-albeit little- but with feelings nonetheless. So she had this connection with Gaara, being his wife.
And with Neji too, being the father (Sasuke felt enraged when he thinks about them doing THAT).
The connection Sasuke had with Sakura is---
Her child was named after him. Uchiha Sasuke.
In the world of Hyuuga clan now comes a Sasuke as a part of the family. A one Hyuuga Sasuke. Every second pass and the bitterness inside his body grew.
If he had know from the start that that girl would do this kind of thing to him and his friends, then he would never even look at her direction at that dark night.
Why did she have to be so defiant and tried (he did not even know if she really did) to catch their attention. And catch she did. But she just had this kind of character that makes people around her - mainly him, Gaara and Neji- to love her.
Loving someone was so difficult. Sasuke had known this for a fact.
Why can't he just walk away? Walk away and leave her behind?
He panicked when Sakura seemed to lose it all and faint, so Sasuke rushed towards her.
Gaara carried the baby into his room and place him gently into the cradle. When Sakura had passed out, the one who got the baby from Sakura was Neji and Sasuke got the girl. To say that Gaara was pissed was not an understatement either. He really was pissed but what could he say?
His two friends visited him without any warnings. Their little visit had caused him some shock, even though he knew this meeting would be inevitable.
After the passing out commotion, he let his friends carry out his family into his house. The three of them stared at each other inside and the tension between the once inseparable friends was very obvious.
"Explain." Neji deadpanned. The feeling of being a father was something he did not plan, but the moment his arms went about his own child, he felt unexplainable joy inside him. His child(named Sasuke) looked like him when he was still a child. His eyes softened as his pearly white eyes dropped to the behaved child.
His eyes scanned the room they were in. The room had a small table with three chairs: Two for the adult and another kind of chair for the baby. He did not know that it was called, but he knew that that chair was for his child. (He still refused to call his child Sasuke.) It looked like a typical commoner's house.
The room was a living room and dining room joined type of room. And to think that, Gaara was happy living in this house. He let a small bittersweet smile. If he was to live with Sakura, he could accept any type of house.
Their living room consists of a small love couch and a normal looking flat screen television. A little bit of decoration here and there to make the house more like a home.
Still, the knowledge of him being married to the love of his life and the father figure of his son did not quite sink in yet.
"There is nothing to explain." Gaara said as he pointed to Sasuke the door to their room. Next, he demanded the baby from Neji. "Give me my son."
"He is not your son. He's mine."
Gaara smirked wickedly. "Now, Neji, I am married to the mother. Let us discuss this when Sakura was up."
Five minutes later, Gaara found himself seated on one of the chairs in the dining room with Neji seated on Sakura's seat and with Sasuke leaning on the wall near to them.
"You want to talk?" Gaara offered. He leaned comfortably into the chair and let them bombarded him with questions.
"You did not even let us know." Sasuke quietly said.
"That child was mine, Gaara. You should have let us know first." Neji accused seconds after Sasuke talked.
"It was all over, Neji," Gaara looked at Neji then Sasuke. "Sasuke. I am married to Sakura now."
"No. It was not over yet." Gaara's eyes glanced at the direction of Sasuke. He looked murderous even to the perception of Gaara.
"You are engaged already." Neji countered to Sasuke.
Sasuke smirked and pushed himself off the wall. Then he walked towards the door from which they entered minutes ago. "Even if you and Sakura are now married, I can still steal her away from you."
Gaara frowned then returned his own kind of smirk at Sasuke's back. "I should wish you luck, then."
"You should." Sasuke said evenly. "Because the girl you married was named Haruno Sakura. I'm only man who she truly loves."
Neji raised his eyebrow that the cheesy line Sasuke threw at Gaara(and himself). Gaara seemed troubled by it for when Sasuke's back was out of view, Gaara slammed his fist onto the table with so much force that Neji was surprised the table was still standing.
Neji shrugged and stood up as well. He had came here with Sasuke, then he would as well leave with him. "Give me your best shot as well." Neji said as a parting line then head out of the house as well.
After the sound of engine starting and a vehicle leaving, a piercing silence came. This meeting troubled him. What could Neji and Sasuke do, when Sakura was now a important part of his life being his wife.
No, he won't let them touch Sakura. He won't even let them go near their house again.
Gaara drew a deep breath and stood up as well.
This war between the three of them was something he did not plan on losing.
Not at all.
AN: I wont promise anything now. I just know that I will finish this ASAP.
