Disclaimer: My name is not Masashi Kishimoto. I'm just a mere fan.
Summary: At the age of 17, Sasuke and Sakura were given a task, which was to baby-sit an extraordinary baby. They never thought of this mission to be easy, because one: they have to live in ONE house. Two: the baby was atypical. Three: The baby used to call them "Mama" and "Papa". And last but definitely not the least; Kakashi would be there with them. And that's what you called BIG TROUBLE.
Hazuki Saiuno: Hi! This is the first chaptered fic I've written, so please go easy on me! I'm a beginner and still learning many things. Haha! Ah, another thing.

It's better late than never, though. :D I hope you enjoy reading, and please leave a review afterwards! I needed your views…!
Oh Mama, Oh Papa!
Chapter 1: The Shock-filled Mission
By: Hazuki Saiuno
A new start to change a dark past is not a regretful thing.
"…and you're LATE!"
Kakashi scratched the back of his head. Some things never really changed even after a long time. Just like old times, having a meeting with his students, having a mission with his students, and having shouted by his students— as if he was the student and they were his teachers.
But the different thing is, he was dealing with the older ones.
Naruto felt like his temper blowing up. Damn this perverted sensei of his! Well, what can you expect from that lazy old man? Old people tend to bear the worst memory gap, which greatly affects their responsibilities. He, the seventeen-year old 'fearless' Uzumaki I'm the freakin' next handsome Rokudaime' Naruto truly understand that fact, and so if that is the case, he (Kakashi) should better quit being ninja and get married!
Like hell any mentally intact girl would fall for him with that kind of excuse, Naruto thought. The blonde-haired boy would truly believe that the dog goes meow if his sensei gets married before he does.
"Naruto, you've said that twenty times already. My ears are functioning very well, no need to worry." The silver-haired jounin mumbled calmly, but loud enough for them to hear with his book attached to his hand firmly. "And you are so mean. I still think of getting married someday."
"Then dream on, sensei!" Naruto yelled at his face. "And don't read my mind!"
"Naruto, give him a break. Old habits really die that hard for him." Haruno Sakura remarked and let out a genuine snigger. Currently at the age of sixteen, Sakura blossomed into one of the strongest kunoichi in Konoha, and almost inherited the Godaime's unparalleled skills of being a medical ninja. She grew more matured both physically and emotionally, which fascinated every man's eyes and were tempted to court her. But she never recognized their feelings. Duty first before anything. Although many things changed, there were also remained the same.
"Hmm. It smells another bet, right Naruto?" Kakashi said, challenging Naruto. " Who's gonna get married first."
" YOU WON'T WIN! And DON'T change the subject here!!!"
Kakashi chuckled. "Yes, I could win for sure. It doesn't mean that you've got your own girlfriend, you could get her hand that easy. The Hyuuga's a powerful clan, mind you."
"T-that's absurd!" Naruto stuttered and blushed. "We are LEGALLY together! So…uhm… so don't talk…marriage…uhhh…"
He was out of words, they all knew that. Naruto could be speechless when it comes to these kinds of things.
" So who's your bet, Sasuke?"
Being involved with senseless stuffs is out of his concern. He, Uchiha Sasuke, labeled as the ice king, would never EVER care for that type of subject. At now seventeen years of age, he attained the Jounin rank and became one of the Konoha's elite ninja. He even joined the ANBU, and now that he had finally achieved his goal; he continued his priorities here in Konoha. But of course, things didn't go that simple when he came back.
Still cocky as ever. Kakashi pondered with a small smile gracing his lips. "Anyway, I got a mission for all of you."
Three pairs of eyes instantly looked at his direction.
It was Sakura who broke the ice between them. "But why? Tsunade-sama could give us that mission directly."
" Silly, Sakura-chan. I hope you know how busy our Godaime is. And I don't want to be a guinea pig of her stumpy temper if I insist that to her."
Sakura sweat-dropped. If they only knew how diverse her master's personality is.
Kakashi cleared his throat and prepared his self for any violent reaction, especially from Naruto. He has implanted on his great vocabulary that term called 'I-never-accept-low-class-mission-oyaji!', in actuality when he is still a Genin. " Okay, you only have to find the missing baby—"
" NOT AGAIN…!" Naruto groused angrily. "What does that old freakin' hag think of us??! Bunch of kids that still needed to be fed by a pacifier?! HOLY—"
Seeing the pair of flaring and perilous eyes, Naruto didn't vacillate to stop what he was going to say. "Holy what again, Na-ru-to?"
Sweat trickled against Naruto's temples. He flailed his hands, being defensive of his statement. Damn, Sakura is the only one that could make him scare like a mouse!
"Anyway, don't just underestimate this mission. It was important, according to the fifth—that's why she entrusted this task to you. As I was saying, you have to retrieve that missing baby. Reports say that the infant was still inside Konoha. So I am expecting you could find him until today. That's all, see you later!" And after that, a loud 'poof' was heard throughout the area.
"Geez." Naruto mumbled under his breath. "So what exactly are we going to do now?"
"Split up." Sasuke suggested with his usual tone.
Sakura nodded, agreeing. "I think Sasuke-kun is right. Let's just meet here after anyone of us reclaims the baby."
And with that, they all disappeared in a blink of an eye.
Sakura continued to wander around the forest and looked everywhere. She spotted nothing at the last bush she stopped by, and sighed. I guess finding the baby is harder than I thought.
Not any later from that moment, she sensed another chakra signature near her. She readied her kunai as she tried to recognize it, but the carrier then divulged himself. She found Sasuke walking towards her direction.
"Got any clues?" Sasuke asked her coldly. Sakura shook her head and suddenly crossed her arms, and thought of a possible way in locating the baby. If he's not in a forest, how about by the river? And how did that baby got lost in the first place? Maybe… we could just ask his guardians… but how? Sir Kakashi never mentioned about his guardians nor parents…!Tsunade-sama may not be available for information…gahh!!
And Sasuke continued to watch Sakura. Yes people, watch. He seldom sees Sakura being stern and distressed, thus this makes him let's just say interested. Just curiosity; not any obsession like her fan boys have who crazed over her.
In fact, he was also confused on his self these days. It's as if he was having a habit—more of a routine one—on watching Sakura train when he has the chance, or free time. He just found her quite amusing in contrast to her personality before. Finally noticing her? Hell no…
…Hell no he was going to admit it!
Both of them quickly focused their attention at the sound of somewhat baby cries. They ran to the direction of the voice right away and noticed a small figure in a blanket. Sakura's eyes widened.
The baby hiccupped.
Slowly but carefully, Sakura lifted the child and held it closer to her. Grin swapped her astonished face and stared at the baby. She felt unexplainable—mixed emotions.
Sasuke looked at them blankly, but he somewhat felt something surreal. Kuso…
"Kawaii! Kawaii! Kawaii!" Sakura felt her feet taking her to Sasuke's side. She never felt like this before. "Ne, take a look at the baby Sasuke-kun! Hmm…I think he is one year old or so… Look, he's smiling! He is smiling at you, Sasuke-kun!"
The raven-haired lad grunted and was about to turn around when Sakura hindered him to do so. "Mou… Sasuke-kun's soo rude, ne? Haha! Do you just wanted to end the mission, or are you honestly afraid of a baby…?"
Sasuke glared her. "What?"
Sakura returned his gaze with a mischievous one. "Unbelievable. The renowned murderous 'Uchiha Sasuke' was too shy or afraid of a baby? I personally don't think it would suit your untainted name, Sa-su-ke."
And she was hitting some nerves. He never knew that Sakura could be good in provocation.
"And how could you possibly resurrect your clan if a single baby could make you run like a frightened cat? I thought you are pluckier than Naruto."
In a blink of an eye, Sasuke pinned her on the nearby tree. Of course, he did it carefully as not to make them hurt. She was getting too annoying, yet in different manner. In some ways, he liked it— she is so… daring. His lips tugged a smirk.
"Don't make me."
Sakura cringed at the tone of his voice and the intimacy of their faces. The only thing that is between them is the bay in her arms, no more spaces. She was only teasing; however he maybe took it seriously. She always knew that a 'joke' is not part of his vocabulary, but she just wants to make some fun out of him sometimes.
The baby wore a bemused look on his expression, but then he suddenly giggled. This made Sakura and Sasuke turn their attention again on the baby between them.
"Mama, Papa! Cuteee!"
Because they can never realize what he meant.
…And SasuSaku needs more love! Please review:D
