I Guess It's True
SasuSaku drabblish fic. Kind of a storyline...Moments in time between Sasuke and Sakura; emotions, feelings, etc. A bit fluffy, but sweet. Reviews appreciated, flames unnecessary. I know when I do something wrong.
"Sasuke! You do care about me!"
"I...guess that's true."
"Sasuke-kun! You're here early," Sakura said, approaching the bridge where they were to meet Kakashi that morning.
Sasuke looked up.
"Uh...Yeah," he replied, then looked out across the water.
"Kakashi's late again, huh," Sakura said, mildly irritated. "And Naruto probably won't be here for a while either."
Sasuke shrugged, not really listening.
Sakura came and leaned on the rail of the bridge next to him, looking down at the quietly flowing stream. She didn't speak, to Sasuke's relief, nor did she gaze at him in the annoying way she normally did. She stared out over the river, allowing a sense of peace to reside between them.
She was doing nothing to annoy him; he had no reason to turn away and ignore her. So nothing kept his eyes from gazing in her direction. For the few short years he had known Sakura, Sasuke had never really thought about her, never really looked at her; never had the opportunity to since he had spent much of his time avoiding her. But now he had the chance to see her, though he didn't realize it then.
His eyes wandered over her, as though he was seeing her for the first time. He was drawn by her face. The cloudy light-green eyes, small nose, and mouth left soft from many smiles, set in a calm, thoughtful expression in smooth, ivory skin. Her light rose hair was down, almost to the small of her back of her petite figure.
She looked smart, he thought. And she was pretty. But he hadn't noticed it before.
Her arm was touching his, but he didn't move away. As curious as it was, he found he couldn't draw his eyes from her. Sakura finally looked up.
"Sasuke? What is it?" she asked, noticing he had been watching her. "Sasuke?"
He didn't answer. Their eyes locked, and he leaned into her, everything seeming to move in slow-motion. Their eyes closed. He could feel her breath on his face as their noses brushed, lips lingering by each others', nearly touching... When they pulled back. They looked back at the water, turned red and orange from the rising sun. They waited there in silence, each looking rather flushed behind their reddened cheeks, until the others arrived.
The day passed quickly with not a word exchanged between the two. Until they were walking back to their houses at sunset.
"I'll see you tomorrow, Sakura," Sasuke said, and he turned towards his own house. Maybe it was only the impact of the kind words on her distraught mind, but Sakura thought she glimpsed a smile on his face.
"See you," she said, remembering to speak, and hurried home, smiling.
A/N: Yay! I wrote a first chapter! I have like 10 of these drabble things that I wrote in a strangely productive day…yeah…so if you like, review! and I'll post more! This one was short, but it's kinda just the intro. The others are longer, and don't worry, this is one of the supposedly "SasuSaku" fics where they do end up together, not where they're just watching each other from a distance for twenty chapters. I hate those things.
