Chapter one

Eternal serene, the moon ruled over star-strewn vaults of cloudless sable night, like a round shield of flecked amber, casting pale light to the earth below. Vagrant breezes swept passed her pale face, cooling the heavy warmth a bright summer day had left in its awake.

Sakura looked over her window. She couldn't sleep. As she looked, she saw a dark figure. The person was soaked and obviously he's wounded. He looked up. Sakura gasped. Sasuke-kun…? He didn't see her. Then he landed on the ground with a 'thud'.

Sakura couldn't help it; she jumped off from her window.

Sakura looked anxiously at the boy lying on her bed. She should bandage him. "Sasuke-kun…?"

No response.

She knew he was awake. "Talk to me if you're awake."

"You don't have to do this you know."

Sakura bit her bottom lip. "I know… but… Here let me bandage your wounds." Sasuke pushed her away. "I don't need it." Then he got up. "I have to go."

"No!" Sakura grabbed his sleeve. "You're injured!"

"I don't care."

"Well I do!" Sakura protested. "I have to bandage you."

If I let her bandage me, she'll shut up. "Fine."

Sakura smiled. "Do you want to take a shower?" Sasuke paused. "Ok. But what should I wear?" Sakura snorted. "What do you think? Of course my father's clothes."

Sasuke raised an eyebrow but didn't argue. He was too tired to argue with her.

"Here, all done."

Sasuke raised his arm. Not bad. "I'm going now." Sakura looked disappointed. But did not say anything. She sniffed. Sasuke narrowed his eyes. "Are you crying?"

"No."

He put two fingers on her chin and lifted her face up, she instantly blushed, "You are." Sakura didn't say anything. Realizing their gaze met, Sakura wanted him to kiss her. Badly. But he turned his head away. "See you tomorrow."

Sakura was happy that she was put into the same group as Uchiha Sasuke. She has been in love with this boy since she was young. She lost her best friend because of him. But that's not his fault, now is it?

She sighed as she walked her away towards the bridge where the Team 7 always meets. Sasuke was already there. "Ohayo."

Sasuke didn't even look at her. She felt bad. All day long she flirts with him, but all he does is give her a glare or saying. 'You're annoying'. She wants to be loved.

"You're annoying."

He did it again. Why does he always say that? To make her feel bad? Embarrassed?

"Sakura-chan!"

Sakura turned back, "Morning Naruto."

Sakura pulled strands of hair back to her ear. Her hair was cut during the Chuunin Exam. Sasuke didn't really care how her hair was cut. She just said 'I want to change my hair style'. Sakura looked down and didn't say anything.

Sasuke narrowed his eyes and looked at her. What's up with her?

"Yo… good morning everyone. I was attacked-"

"Sensei… don't even bother." Naruto sighed. Kakashi-sensei shook his head in disappointment.

Sasuke had learn how to use Sharingun during the fight with Haku. He wasn't surprised, after all, he came from the Uchihas. Sakura thinks she is useless. Always being protected by Kakashi-sensei, Naruto and Sasuke. She never did things right. She sighed as she sat down next to the tree.

"Yo."

Sakura looked up and saw Sasuke's face. "Sasuke-kun?"

Sasuke threw a bottle at her. "You must be thirsty."

"Thanks." She smiled.

"Well, Kakashi told me to give it to you." Sasuke said and he went off.

Sasuke once lived in a happy family. Until his older brother destroyed it. He killed their parents, the whole Uchiha clan. Uchiha Itachi.

"What are you doing in the weekend?" Naruto asked Sakura when they were finished with the training. She shrugged. "I don't know. My parents are out of the town-" Her voice trailed off. She realized what she just said. She stole glance at Sasuke. He is very sensitive about 'parents'. "Sorry." She mumbled.

"Why are you apologizing?" Sasuke asked.

Sakura shrugged. "Because, you don't like it."

"I don't care."

"Yes you do."

Sasuke sighed, "Why are you always annoying?"

"Why do you always say that?" Sakura asked.

"Because you are annoying."

"And so are you." There was silence. Sakura never speak to Sasuke like that. Never.

"You're calling me annoying?"

"Yes, sometimes." Sakura smiled.

"Hn."

"Everybody, let's eat ramen!" Naruto announced.

"Not again…"
