Sakura's Admire 2: The Poposal

Ch. 1

"Uchiha...Itachi?" Sakura asked as she tilted her head to the side slightly. A thoughtful look came across her face, "Hummm....that name sounds familiar...."

"It does??" Itachi asked, unable to hide his surprise.

For a moment, Sakura remained silent as she continued to think. "Uchiha..." She repeated more to herself. Another moment ( and Itachi practically at the edge of his seat) later, a smile spread across her face as she looked at him. "Ah! You must be related to wouldn't happen to be his father....or uncle maybe?"

It took a moment for him to process what she had just said and once he did his eyes widen and his mouth hung wide open in shock. Did he look THAT old?! It's true that the men in the Uchiha family tend to look older then what they really were however; he didn't think it was possible for him to be mistaken as his brother's father! Sakura was pretty quick on catching Itachi's reaction, despite him trying horribly to hide it.

"" She started to fidget around a bit feeling embarrassed for her misunderstanding. "I...uh..." She said quietly as she looked down. "I didn't mean to be rude Itachi-san...." Just then she looked back up at him with her eyes widen slightly. "No...I mean...Itachi-kun..." She looked slightly em brassed after changing the suffix. For a moment he looked down and didn't say a word.

"If you don't feel comfortable calling me that....." He began but was quickly interrupted by Sakura.

"No, you misunderstood..." She corrected him as the look on her face softened a bit. He silently looked at her as she continued. Her face twisted into a confused thoughtful look. "I can't quite put a finger on it....but calling you Itachi-kun....." She shook her head. He continued to look at her wondering if she somehow was remembering about their past and he felt eager to ask, but remembering what the doctor said gave him doubts in questioning all together.

She smiled as she continued and this of course peeked Itachi's interest."Well, you see I did feel a bit weird calling you by that suffex cause even though I don't know you well enough I've always been taught to show proper respect to strangers." She paused as her smile widened. "'t a stranger to me. You're the nice young man who would always come to visit me, so says the nurses and doctors. Since I've been awake, everyday I've seen you and you were always encouraging me. You've already become a friend to then it would be appropriate to call you Itachi-kun right?"

A smile of his own appeared and he couldn't help but to chuckle a little. This of course earned him a confused look. He shook his head as he spoke. "You're right're right" He smiled as he looked at her and she like wise smiled back at him. They were silent, just like that for a moment.

He had made a promise right? Even if life threw an unfair curve ball at him, he promised to stay by her side. Without another word, he walked up to her bed side and gave her a hug. For her that was the first time he hugged her and although she was taken by surprise, it soon subsided and she returned the hug.

.....well that's it for now. Expect to see more really soon. Until then, later!
