Forgotten pasts

Naruto got up at dawn and headed for the Hokage building his heart still heavy from last night. Sakura was fast asleep, still lying in his bed. He left a note on the fridge and headed out. He ran as fast as he could to where Tsunade would be, knowing she was probably freaking out not knowing where Sakura was. As he stepped foot into the building he realized it was dead quiet he walked a little faster towards Tsunade's office. He took a deep breathe and opened the door. Tsunade was behind her desk, her chaired turned so that she was staring out the window. He knew that she had sensed him come in and waited patiently for her to acknowledge him. She glanced at him from the corner of her eyes a frown falling cross her face.

"When I heard that she escaped I can't honestly say that I wasn't surprised." It was very quiet after she had said this. Naruto didn't say anything so she continued. "Though, I have to say I was shocked to say that you actually took her to your place…" She had turned to him and stared intensely at him as if to read his mind. His face didn't change as she stared intently at him.

"It would have been rude of me to have left her in the forest." He said blankly. Tsunade slammed her hands on her desk and stood up.

"Don't give me that bullshit Naruto; you're not the Uchiha so stop acting like him. We all know you care about her and you keep beating your self up because of what happened but you haven't lost her! In that hospital all she wanted was you. She would ask question after question and she would sometimes even cry because she didn't understand why you hated her so much. DAMN IT Naruto she can't remember a damn thing….. and..." Tsunade stopped, took a breath and sat down and stared at him "and... I think you're the only one who will bring her memories back." Naruto eyes glazed over as in deep thought.

"I... I can't" He said shakily. He looked down at his hands. "I have to stay away. Its cause of me she got attacked….and what else happened." He stared at his hands and sighed.

All of a sudden he looked up and stared out the window and growled lowly as his eyes flashing red. He turned around to leave.

"Where the hell are you going" She yelled. He turned around and flashed his teeth at her. For a moment she was stunned.


An empty bottle of sake hit Naruto's head. His eyes turned back to normal and he looked confused at the steaming woman in front of him.

"You better never do that to me again" She warned. "Now tell me what the hell that was about. You looked like a possessive jealous boyfriend" Tsunade yelled. Naruto stared out the window for a bit.

"She's awake and left my house… I need to find her..." He said staring out the window. There was a long pause.

"To protect her?" she asked quietly. He nodded.

"I don't want it getting her again… ever again" Naruto said his eyes once again flashing red momentarily. Tsunade sighed and stared at him.

"You know, you make no sense. You're staying away from her to protect her from you and then following her to make sure that it doesn't get her again. It makes no sense what so ever." Tsunade said. Naruto nodded in agreement.

"Yeah I know. I'm still trying to figure it out." He said still staring out the window intensly. She sighed and watched him.

"Naruto… that day… we need to know more… I know you gave as much as you could and I haven't pressured you to open up more about it but we cant simply just go by what that thing looked like anymore I can't in danger more people. For the people of Konoha and especially Sakura's safety we need to know more about what happened that day." She quietly looked at him waiting for him to reply. He looked at his feet then at her.

"I can't right now… it's just a little too hard…" He replied looking truly broken. Tsunade sighed.

"Fine" She put her face in her hand and sighed. She looked up and was shocked to see she was alone. She turned her chair back around and stared out the window. She hadn't notice that something in Naruto's attitude changed and he had slipped out while she had looked away.

Sakura walked slowly down the street she had been trying to find the flower shop from the day before so she could apologize to the one she hoped was Ino and maybe get some information out of her. She passed a dark alley and felt a shiver go up her back. She stopped and looked around the slightly busy street and then shrugged. As she began to walk away she felt someone grab her around the waist and pull her into the alley. She was pressed into the wall and stared up at dark onyx eyes. Sakura stared at him for a bit.

"Sasuke, can you back up a little, you're making me really uncomfortable." Sakura said. Sasuke was very quiet for a moment.

"I don't want to" And as to prove a point he pressed closer to her. She gave him a weird look and tried to push him back.

"Ok I don't know if you acted like this before but seriously back off." She said a note of fear in her voice. She didn't like this side of him and it was scaring her. She felt sick and could feel her dream coming back. The same feeling she had felt in it. His face was to close to hers like he was going to kiss her and she knew that she didn't want this. She tried pushing him away but couldn't. She closed her eyes scared of what was going to happen. She heard a low growl and then Sasuke's weight gone. She opened her eyes to see Naruto had jumped on top of Sasuke hitting him repeatedly. She gasped and ran over and grabbed Naruto's arm that was going to hit Sasuke again. His head whipped around and she saw red eyes and fangs.

"Stop, Please!" She had tears in her eyes. He got up and picked her up carefully then sent one last glare to the dark haired boy on the ground then jumped away with Sakura in his arms.

He jumped on his balcony and carried her into his living room. She had rapped her arms tightly around him and when he set her on her feet she hadn't let go. Tears still flowed down from her green eyes as she looked into his still red ones. He growled and leaned over and gently licked her check where her tears were making it down her face. She had closed her eyes and opened them again to look at him. His eyes were still red and for some reason deep in her, those eyes scared her and put her to peace all at the same time.

"You're staying with me till you get your memory back. " He said his voice coming out a few pitches lower. She nodded her head. He let go of her and pulled out of her embrace and went to the kitchen to get him self something to drink.

"Naruto… Is Sasuke always like that?" She asked timidly. He looked up at her and his eyes narrowed.

"No... He's not. He's trying to do something and I will find out what it is." He said and turned around. She walked over to his couch and sat down. He came over moment later and sat next to her. He put enough space between them that another person could sit between them comfortable. She nodded her head.

"Thank you for stopping him and stopping when I asked." Sakura said quietly.

"Don't get in the way next time… I could have attacked you if I hadn't been aware of you" He said harshly. She bent her head down.

"Ok… I'm sorry."

There was a silence in the room for a bit till Sakura couldn't handle it anymore.

"Where am I going to sleep? I would feel horrible to take your bed."

"I'll take the couch… don't worry about it" He said. She frowned at him.

"But your already letting me stay here so I can sleep…"

"Sakura I said you're sleeping on the bed… don't argue." He said visciously. Her face turned a little red with anger and she got up and stomped to the room and closed the door swiftly.

Naruto leaned back on the couch. This was going to be one hell of a time. Right now he just needed to calm down, seeing Sasuke almost kiss her sent him over the edge and he was being basically taking it out on her. He knew he needed to apologize but right now they both needed to unwind. He would definitely have a talk with Sasuke and Tsunade about it later. Right now he needed to cook dinner because he could definitely hear both their stomach a few minutes ago.
