Chapter 1: First Day
Haruno Sakura woke up as usual for her first day at a new school. Slowly she looked into her mirror to assess the damage that had been done to her in last night's "family affair". This normally consisted of her stepfather getting completely smashed, and then deciding that it would be a good time to beat on his seventeen year old daughter.
"Shit," she muttered all but to her self, considering there was no one else in the room.
She then reached for a towel, and made her way to the bathroom. Sakura began to run the water to her shower. While she waited for the water to warm, she took a long look at everything. Her head had been busted open on the left side, which left her hair to be caked with a little bit of blood. Not surprisingly her left eye was also adorned with a blue-ish color that almost rivaled black. She knew that she was going to have to work some serious magic with her make-up to hide all of that.
'How am I going to explain this? Well, that is if anyone notices it. I mean did he really have to hit me in the face last night? Jin (A/N: That is what I declare her Step-dads name to be) really was a smart guy... abusive... but smart, he knew that I had school today!'
The bathroom started to steam as she climbed into her shower. Everything that had happened the pervious night was just as it was stated: in the past. As she washed the sweat and blood from her body, memories from last night came flooding back.
"Come here, Sakura dear..."
'Oh... this can't be good'
His hand shot out, fixing itself in her hair. A small noise of shock came from her lips.
"You know what I want, don't you, Sakura-chan?" he stated it in an almost seductive way.
His hand began to creep its way down her neck, gently skimming across the collar bone as it traveled further south"
'Ugh... I don't have time for this tonight, I have school tomorrow!'
A smile graced her otherwise empty face. It was forced, and she knew it. Her only freedom from tonight's torture was going to be sweet talk, and she knew it was her only way out.
"Sorry pops, but you know tomorrow is a school night and I'm afraid I just won't be able to handle that tonight." She sounded sickeningly sweet, and she thought she was going to vomit right then and there.
She knew that it was a dumb mistake, a very dumb mistake to try to back out of what he had planned tonight, but she just couldn't deal with him right now. Jin's auburn eyes lit up to an almost fiery red. She knew right then and there she was going to have at least one mark grace her skin for school tomorrow. Hopefully, she thought, it would be somewhere she could hide it.
"No, that dumb fuck couldn't keep from messing up my face."
She winced as she slid soap over the abrasion that graced her large forehead. It wasn't that Sakura was self-conscious, she really didn't care what people thought about her, but it was the truth; Sakura's forehead was large. After all was said and done, a new, clean Sakura removed herself from her shower, only to step outside her bathroom and freeze.
'NO, NOT RIGHT NOW!'
Jin was standing right outside her bathroom door. 'Was he waiting for me to come out?' He smiled lecherously at her small frame. His eyes scanned the towel that hung loosely at the top of her full breast.
"Oh, Sakura," Jin began speaking to her, but his eyes remained fixed on her thin body. "I will be leaving town for a few months," Sakura's emerald orbs lit up only for a second before returning into a blank stare, "or it might be longer. I have to attend to some affairs at the company."
Jin noticed the fleeting look that her eyes had. Sakura soon found herself against a wall with her feet dangling right above the floor. Jin's mouth came to her ear as warm air puffed onto her neck and ear; Sakura found herself becoming slightly ill.
"Oh I wouldn't be to happy darlin', I won't leave until Wednesday afternoon, and I plan to get as much fun out of you as I can until then." Sakura was dropped unceremoniously to the floor. She sat there for a minute,
trying to settle her stomach. Slowly, she rose and made her way to her room.
"Hello?" Sakura snapped into the receiver.
" H-h-hello, Sa-Sakura-chan," came a meek voice on the other end. Sakura almost instantly felt horrible, and began to soften her voice to almost match the girl on the other end.
"I'm sorry Hinata-chan I just got into an argument with Jin," Sakura sighed. She really hated to lie and especially when person she was lying to was Hinata. She had known the Hyuuga for the majority of her life. Hinata had moved away when both of them were only fourteen. Both her and Sakura were the best of friends, and still continued to talk, and write. When she found out that they had to move, mainly because certain people began to suspect what was going on in the Haruno household, she called her best friend right away to give her the news.
"Oh, o-o-ok, umm... I was j-just calling to tell you th-that I was going t-to be there in about fifteen minutes." Hinata stated calming down just a little bit.
"Okay Hinata-chan. I will see you in a little bit. Bye"
Sakura flew into super speed mode. She took her damp hair that lay flat a little past her shoulders, and ran a brush through her pastel locks. She had left her bangs out so that they hung over the left side of her face. She did a few quick swipes of foundation to try and hide her new bruise. Of course, Sakura had been used to this treatment for a while now, and even though the thought of being proud to be able to hide such vulgar marks on her otherwise flawless skin sickened her, she couldn't help but feel a little pride, no matter how shameful it was. She then took out her grey kohl eyeliner and applied it ever so gently, but quickly to her swollen eye, and just as swiftly to the other. Her glasses were the last thing she put on. Her normal contacts would not do today for the simple fact that she wouldn't be able to open her eye that far at all. It wasn't swollen shut, just swollen so that she couldn't go all bug-eyed to put them in. Now that her face was intact, she walked to her closet. She pulled out a short-sleeved baby-tee that was red with the saying "I don't need friends like you, I have enough of my own." in black scribbled letters. She grabbed a pair of black stretchy capris, and wrapped a long chain around her waist loosely before clipping it together and letting it hang. Just then a horn sounded. Sakura peeked out her window and saw Hinata outside in her dark blue Lancer. Sakura took one last look in the mirror, satisfied. On her way out she grabbed her fingerless gloves, along with her keys and notebooks. She put on her black sandals and walked out.
"Hey Hinata-chan!" Sakura waved to her.Hinata had let here hair grown out, and it sat right at her shoulders, in small waves. She had applied a thick line of black eyeliner to the top and bottom of hers eyes.She was wearing a black sleeveless dress that sat right at her knees, and had on black fishnet gloves that went up her forearm, and a pair of black lace-up sandles. Hintata was one of the shyest people Sakura knew, but her outfit just screamed "Don't Fuck With ME!" Sakura almost had to laugh at the irony of it all.
"Hi Sakura-chan, are you ready?"
"Yep, lets get goin'."
The car then pulled out of her driveway. Sakura had all but time to listen to one song and put on her gloves before they had parked.
Hyuuga Neji had woken up to here his cousin rushing out the door, saying goodbye to everyone else she left. It probably just would have been a very quick "see ya" that rang throughout the house, but the simple fact is that anything beyond a whisper would have been very un-Hinata like. He rolled out of bed and slowly walked to the shower. Neji uncle stopped him before he reached his destination.
"You are going to be late Neji."
"Not if you get out of my way and stop talking to me," Neji grumbled. He honestly didn't know why his uncle tried to care so much. He had exited the shower just as quickly as he had entered it. His hair hung just shy of waist length dripping wet as he made his way back to his room to get dressed. Neji truly was a pretty boy, even though he never really put much effort into it. The biggest effort he made was putting on a little bit of eyeliner every now and then, and today was not one of those days.
He made his way to his closet to look for something to wear. It was still pretty warm for being September, so he couldn't add layers of clothes. He took out a pair of dark blue jeans and a button up top that was white with black and red kanji signs. He brushed his hair and pulled it into a low ponytail. On his way out the door he picked up his messenger bag, grabbed the keys to his bike, and took one glance at the clock."I'm out, with five minutes to spare!" Neji smirked knowing full and well that it had pissed his uncle off.
Neji drove his bike to school. The first day back to school was truly going to suck for him. One, because of the obvious, it was school, but the second reason was because of him.
Gaara had been up for the last few hours, he couldn't sleep that well to begin with, and then there was that dream again. He really did hate that dream; it almost hurt him to have it every night. It was true him and Neji had had a relationship in the past, but he had to end it. It really wasn't quite fair to either of them really. Neji was a cold person to begin with, and Gaara... well he was just Gaara, void of all emotion because of outside circumstances in his life. It was really that dream that had ended it all, when both were so happy, well as happy as they could get. He glanced up at the clock, 7:20am; he had to be to school in thirty minutes. He had already taken a shower in few hours before so there was no need for that. He flipped on his light switch so he could see. Gaara had to squint his eyes until his eyes adjusted to the light. He grabbed a pair of black jeans that from wear and tear had been made into a pair of shorts. He pulled a black tank top out of his drawer, and threw a dark blue button up top over it. He then proceeded to make his way to the bathroom.
'Thank god everyone was still asleep.' He lived with his to older siblings; both had graduated already, so he was by himself in the morning unless Temari had to work. In the bathroom, he looked in the mirror and applied his black eyeliner; it took a total of five seconds at most. He was used to doing it everyday for the past five years, it was the same thing every morning, plus of minus a few things. He finally went down stairs and grabbed a piece of bread before walking out the door. Gaara was going to have to walk to school, but he didn't mind considering he live two blocks away. He was left alone to his thoughts as he walked down the street. He replayed the memory inside his head over and over again.
"I'm sorry Neji, but we are done"
"WHAT?" His voice was somewhere in between 'Are you serious?' and 'I didn't quite get that'.
"Me and you are not going to work out, we can't." Gaara's tone never changed and remained blank in true Gaara fashion.
"Why not? Why can't we?" Neji had calmed a little bit from the shock, but anger was quickly replaced by sadness.
"I don't care about you, you were fun for a while, but I got bored," Gaara shrugged.
"…Oh," this was the only replied that could be given by the older teen before he walked away.
Gaara shook his head trying to rid himself of the memory. 'I am truly sorry Neji I didn't mean anything I said... but that's just how it's going to be.' Gaara sighed and kept walking.
Without even realizing it, Gaara had walked to school already. His feet carried him unconsciously there without a second thought.
"Hey, Panda-san!" Gaara had to cringe at the nickname. There was only one person that called him that the one the only...
"Naruto. What? It's to early to shout like that"
"Heh, sorry I just didn't want you to walk right past us." Gaara then looked up and was grateful that one person was absent from the group.
Hinata had just walked up to them with her best friend and was ready to introduce her to everyone. With this new member standing in front of them, all of them hushed waiting for Hinata to speak. Sakura had grown highly uneasy with this newfound attention that seemed to focus directly on her.
"Hey Hinata! Who is the new chick?"
"Oh, Hi Naruto-kun." Hinata seemed to grow increasingly shy around him. Sakura had noticed this and put a hand on her friends shoulder. "This is my best friend, Sakura-chan, she just moved here from Tokyo." Hinata started the introductions. There was Uzumaki Naruto, his blond hair and bright blue eyes made him almost child-like, and his attitude was loud and brash. The outfit he wore, light blue jeans with an orange t-shirt, with blue writing that said "spoil me, I deserve it," and orange and blue converse, did nothing but make him stand out from the black and white that everyone else was wearing.
Next there was Naruto's best friend, Uchiha Sasuke, his jet black hair was slicked back, he had pale skin, and eyes where so dark they were almost black. His outfit was much more subdued then Naruto's; it consisted of a white shirt, dark blue jeans, and white Nikes. All Sakura got from him was an "hn". Hinata was almost surprised. Later, she explained that no one, especially the girls, got a word out of Sasuke, unless he had know them forever. Hinata had been an exception for the simple fact that she was Neji's cousin. Next came Gaara, he kind of scared Sakura, it wasn't the clothes or anything like that, but those eyes were so emotionless, and yet they seemed to read into you soul at the same time. His bright red hair was in complete contrast to everything he was wearing, minus the kanji symbol he had placed on his head. He was quite attractive, he had a small build but she could tell that he had a nice body, or at least chest because his tank top was so tight. Sakura had already been informed about him, from Hinata. He was Neji's ex.
"Hey where is Neji-san?" Sakura asked Hinata. She knew a lot about Neji, she knew that he was the fact that her best friend had to leave her. She was angry at first but she understood. Neji's mother had been dead from the time he was born. Neji's father had been murdered. He simply refused to leave his fathers body and move to Tokyo, so Hiashi had moved his family to Konoha.
"Oh, Nii-san was still in bed when I left to get you Sakura-chan. So I don't know when he will show up." Like clockwork, the roar of Neji's bike could be heardfrom the school parking lot.
Neji parked his bike and walked out of the parking lot. He saw his group of friends and the one person he hadn't seen in three months. Gaara looked amazing! Neji looked at the redhead for a split second, and quickly turned away. It was no secret to anyone in the group what had happened between those two. It was just a general understanding that no one talked about it. Neji greeted everyone with a flick of the hand.
"Hey, Neji, how come you act like such a bastard when Hinata-chan here is so sweet?" Naruto asked this as he grabbed Hinata around the waist, hugging her and rubbing his face in her hair. Hinata looked like she was about to die.
"Uzumaki," Neji was beyond pissed to be using Naruto's last name, "If you know what is good for you, you will release my cousin." With that last sentence Neji stormed off after Naruto's hands left Hinata.
"What the fuck is wrong with him?" It seemed everyone saw what was painfully obvious except for Naruto, and Hinata at the moment, as she was left dazed.
With that last statement the bell had rung and it was time for class. Hinata was helped out of her stupor so that she could help Sakura to the office. Hinata dropped her off there and apologized for the fact that she couldn't stay and would see her later.
Sakurawas standingin front of the secretary, quietly waiting to be noticed. Finally, she looked up and acknowledged the girl. She took Sakura's information down and disappeared into a mass of folders and files. Five minutes later she returned to give Sakura a schedule and a map to find her way.

'All right, room 211, here I go. I hope that he won't introduce me or anything like that. I really hate to be put on the spot; it's just so unfair. People tend to stare at you, and when they stare they notice stuff, which isn't good for people like me. Oh shit, I almost walked right past it! Well... here goes nothing...'
