-1A/N: Just a little warning but there will be character deaths in this chapter. Just to let you know. But don't worry they won't be dead forever. (Hint, hint) By the way to people who already read this I added something on the bottom. Sorry but it's important for the story and I forgot to put it in.
Sasuke/Sakura's Inner Self
Chapter 8: Mission Complete
Sasuke sighed. He didn't feel like dealing with this right now. He wanted to finish off his mission and return back to the meeting world as fast as he could, that way he and Sakura could be together faster.
"Sasuke? As in Uchiha Sasuke, the dead one?" Ino asked her, shocked. Hell everyone was shocked at the information.
"What other Sasuke would there be?" Sakura replied, as if it were the most obvious thing in the world.
Ino shrugged at the question.
"But how can he be here if he is dead?" TenTen asked, almost everyone was wondering this right now. All eyes turned to Sasuke. He sighed once more before narrowing his eyes at them, glaring at them. He was in no mood for this. They just continued to stare at him.
"Well?" Neji asked him.
"Well what, Hyuuga?" Sasuke asked him; well it was more of a snap. Neji just smirked in response, crossing his arms over his chest.
"So you are Sasuke." He stated and Sasuke just intensified his glare.
"So what if I am?" He growled at him.
"Tell us, how are you alive if we saw your body in a coffin and being buried, no more than three weeks ago?" Neji asked him, a smirk still placed on his face.
"That is none of your business." Sasuke snapped at him.
"How is not our business? We're your friends." Ino told him, and his glare turned to her.
"Friends you say? I doubt that. You are more like…traitors." Sasuke told them, this time a smirk was found on his face.
"Traitors, how do you see that? We did nothing bad to our village." TenTen spoke up, wondering what he was talking about.
"Nobody said anything about the village."
"Than what do you mean?" Shikamaru asked him, even though he was a genius, he was still confused as to what Sasuke meant by traitor.
"For a genius you sure are stupid." Sasuke told him, as he shook his head in disappointment.
'And I thought they would know. Seems like they all got rusty while I was gone.' He thought to himself.
"So what if he doesn't know? I'm pretty sure none of us know, right?" Ino said defending Shikamaru while everyone but Sakura, Sasuke and Naruto nodded.
"Looks like two people know." Sasuke told her, nodding towards Sakura and Naruto.
"You two know what he's talking about?" TenTen asked and both nodded hesitatingly.
"Well, what is it?" Neji asked, well it more of a demand.
"You should all know already, Hyuuga." Sasuke snarled at him.
"Know what? That we're all somehow traitors? I don't see how, Uchiha." Neji snapped back to him.
"You did it, you should know. There's no point on telling you some thing you did." Sasuke told him, becoming annoyed at how dense the people in the room really were.
"Does it have something to do with Sakura and Naruto?" Ino asked, she was nervous right now. She thinks she knows the answer but only a nod will confirm it. Sasuke nodded. So she was right. She sighed and looked at team seven.
"I think I know what it is." She said to them.
"What?" Hinata asked her curiously. Every head turned towards her, all wanting to know what she had to say.
"We're all traitors to team seven because we didn't let them got to Sasuke funeral." Ino told them.
"That is it?" Neji asked, not thinking it was too big of a deal.
"Yes, Hyuuga. Just think about it, what if TenTen died, what would you do if you missed the funeral because your friends didn't defend you and tell the doctors that you should go, hmm?" Sasuke asked him, striking a nerve.
He knew he did, especially by saying TenTen name. Neji bowed his head, thinking about what Sasuke had just said to him. He was right, and Neji knew it.
"You are right, Uchiha." He said, lifting his head back up to look at Sasuke.
"We did what was best for their health though. If they would have went they might have done something to hurt themselves even more." Ino defended.
"Oh, yeah that sure does help, don't it? Not going to see your own team mates funeral, yeah big help." Sasuke replied sarcastically.
"What were we to do? The doctors wouldn't have let them out, even if we tried." TenTen said.
"Liars. They probably would have let us out, seeing as he was a team mate." Naruto snarled, he knew that they knew they were wrong.
They just didn't want to admit it and it hurt him, knowing his friends were traitors to him and his team.
"Yeah, they would have let you out knowing you all were half dead." Shikamaru countered, sarcastically.
"I had enough of this, you all betrayed us by not letting us go to our own team mates funeral, ok? That's it, it's done, you can't change that. Just know that we'll never trust you again for it." Sakura said to them all, her anger getting the better of her.
Everyone quieted down. Sasuke smirked at the reaction of his former friends. Sakura could get that reaction from mostly everyone if she was mad enough.
"I think it's time you all left." Sakura told them, she didn't need this aggravation right now, not in her condition.
"But…" Ino began, only to be cut off.
"No, Ino. Leave everyone, please. I don't have time for this, nor am I in a condition for this." Sakura yelled, her eyes closed as she leaned against the wall for support.
Sasuke saw this immediately. He turned towards his former friends and glared at all of them except Naruto. All thoughts of staying that had ran threw there mind were immediately vanquished. They all nodded, hesitantly and left with one last glance at Team seven. Naruto turned back to Sasuke with a grin.
"Too stubborn to stay dead, huh, Sasuke-teme?" He asked him. Sasuke rolled his eyes at Naruto.
"Of course dope." He replied. "
Stubborn bastard. Why didn't you want us to know?" Naruto asked, curiously.
"None of your business dope."
"Stupid teme." Naruto said to him.
"Will you two shut the hell up, please? You're giving me a headache." Sakura asked them, still angered from before. Both nodded to her in response. "Thank you." She said as she stood up straight.
Pain shot threw her shoulder and stomach as she did. She gasped as the pain shot threw her body and grasped both of her wounds. Her knees were about to give out. Sasuke was immediately next to her, helping her stand by sliding on of his arms around her waist. Naruto also was by her side.
"Sakura, you ok?" He asked her, earning a glare from Sasuke.
"Of course she isn't dope. Why else would she be holding her wounds?"
"Wounds? What wounds? I thought she was better." Naruto said frantically as he tried to look at her wounds.
Sasuke hit him on the head with his free hand, making a bump and than turned back to Sakura. The pain had subsided and she was better although every now and than short pulses would run threw out her body.
"Owww. What was that for Sasuke-teme?" Naruto asked, rubbing the bump on his head.
"For being a dope." He replied.
"Enough guys." Sakura said to the two.
"You ok?" Sasuke asked, softly. She nodded as her cheeks turned slightly pink.
"Sasuke, are you going soft on us?" Naruto asked with a sly grin.
"Shut up dope." He said looking away with a very slight pink tint to his cheek.
"Guys, enough with the name calling, ok?" Sakura asked them and Naruto pouted.
"But Sakura I like calling the teme a teme." Naruto whined.
"Yes I know but not now." Sakura said to him and he nodded, a pout still on his face.
"Ok. So…anybody want to go get some ramen?" He asked the two.
"Naruto, it's ten in the morning." Sakura told him.
"So?" He asked her, with a shrug.
"We're not going to eat Ramen for breakfast." Sasuke said, simply.
"Fine than I'll go by myself. See ya later." Naruto said and walked out of the room.
"Bye." Sakura said and Sasuke stayed silent.
'Finally the damn dope left.' Sasuke thought to himself.
'Yeah now we can follow out our plan and do one of the missions the council gave us.' Sasuke inner self said to him.
'Finally, we can get it over with and rule our new territory.'
'Yup with a beautiful new Queen.'
'Yeah.' Sasuke said to his inner self. "Sasuke?" Sakura asked, seeing his staring at nothing really. His head snapped towards her.
"Oh, nothing. You just zoned out." She told him and he nodded.
"Sasuke, can I ask you something?" She asked hesitantly.
"If you want." He told her and she took a deep breath before asking her question.
"How are you back? I mean how did you get revived or whatever? And why are you back?" She asked him.
"That's more than one question you know." He replied with a smirk and she smiled.
"I know but can you answer them, please?" He nodded to her.
"Alright, sit down and get comfortable." He said to her and she walked over to the bed with him still holding her waist.
"Yeah?" He asked, looking down at her.
"Can you…umm…let go so I can sit?" She asked with a blush, motioning towards his arm around her waist. He smirked and shook his head.
"What do you mean no?" She exclaimed.
"Just sit down." He told her.
"Whatever." She said and slowly sat down on the bed, he removed his arm from her waist so she could sit down but as soon as he sat down next to her his arm was back around her waist.
"You comfy?" He asked her and she nodded her head, resting it on his shoulder.
"Good. Now let me tell you what happened." Sasuke said and told her the things up until he received his missions. (All of chapter two.)
"Now for what happened after I was told I was to rule one of the realms." Sasuke said and began to tell her.
"Well Uchiha, the reason you are here is because you were chosen to be the ruler of one of the Ninth Realms. Weather it Heaven or Hell is up to you." Akujin said and waited for Sasuke to react. He was shocked, he really was. He was suppose to be a ruler of Heaven or Hell. It was a bit weird that they would choose him for either one, seeing as he was more evil than good, in his opinion anyway.
"Why me?" He asked, with a shocked face.
"I don't know but it says here that you are the supposed ruler of one of them. The one you are to rule though is in your hands." Akujin told him.
"How's that? Do I get t pick which one?" Sasuke asked him and Akujin shook his head.
"No, a mission chooses. Although you are the one who chooses which mission to do." Akujin told him.
"Yes, one mission from me and one from Akujin." Tenshi said.
"Ok and what will they be?" Sasuke asked. "Well they'll be very difficult in our opinion. Especially since it has to do with a teammate of yours. Both missions." Tenshi began and he raised an eye brow.
"You mean I'm going to be sent back to earth to complete it?"
"Yes, you are." Tenshi answered.
"Why?" "Because that's the way we want it boy, enough with the questions. Shut up and let us complain." Akujin growled to him,
becoming annoyed. "Calm down Akujin. It is a good thing to ask questions." Tenshi said to him and he glared at her.
"Whatever. Just tell him yours that way I can tell him mine and get this over with." Akujin snapped and she rolled her eyes at him.
"Ok, the answer to your question is because in order to complete this mission you must talk to one of your former teammates and tell them something. Got it so far?" Tenshi asked and he nodded. "Good, now my mission for you is…"
"Hey, why'd you stop?" Sakura asked with a pout.
"Because I told you enough information." Sasuke told her.
"But what were the missions and who did it involve?" Sakura asked him and he sighed. He stood up off the bed with her following. His back was to her.
You really want to know?" He asked and turned back to face her. "
"You positive?" He asked and she nodded.
"Yes." She told him.
"Before I tell you I want you to answer two things, ok?" He began and she nodded with a slight pout,
"If I were to leave would you want to come with me if I could take you? And two would you ever hate me for something I did?" He asked, softly and she looked at him with confusion.
"Why?" She asked.
"Just answer." He snapped and she was taken a back at the change in attitude.
"Please." He asked, a softer tone and she nodded as she began to think. She thought a moment before she came up with her answer.
"I got it."
"Already?" He asked and she nodded.
"Are you sure?" He asked and she nodded.
'Nobody can come up with a good question within a minute. This is going to end bad.' Sasuke told himself.
'Not necessarily. Just because she came up with the answer doesn't mean it's bad. I mean maybe she already knew what to say.'
'I don't know but I hope it's a good answer.' Sasuke thought to his inner self.
"Well?" He asked her.
"You should already know the answer to the questions." She told him.
"What?" He asked, a bit confused on what she was saying to him.
"You should know." She repeated.
"Umm…." He had no idea what the answer was.
She sighed and said, "Yes and no."
"Yes to what and no to what?" He asked her and she sighed again.
"Yes to the first question and no to the second. Yes I would come with you wherever you were to go if I could and no I can never hate you for something you did even if it was bad." She told him and he sighed in relief before wrapping both arms around her waist, pulling her into a tight hug.
'Well buddy you got your answer, might as well do it now, quick and fast to complete the mission.' His inner self told him and he nodded.
He removed one of his arms from her waist and grabbed something in the back pocket of his shorts. He than placed it back around her waist with the item in hand. Sakura felt this but said nothing about it to him.
"I'm sorry." He said to her and she pulled back a bit to look at his face with confusion.
"Sorry? About…" She was cut off when blood erupted from her mouth as she felt a pain surge threw her chest, right where her heart was.
She slumped against his body, her eyes wide filled with betrayal and pain.
"I'm so sorry." He told her before removing the item from her chest from behind. He pulled back, one of his arms still wrapped around her waist as he lifted his other one. A bloody kunai was grasped in it. He opened his hand and it dropped to the floor with a metallic thud.
"Wh-why?" He heard a weak voice ask him and he looked down at Sakura who had tears filling her eyes.
"Because I can't let you go." He answered her as he placed her on her bed, remembering what the two missions were.
"Good, now my mission for you is you have to go to Haruno Sakura and tell her to move on without you, tell her to forget about you so she could live a happy life." Tenshi told him and he looked at her with shock, his eyes were wide and his mouth hung open
'How can this woman expect me to do that?' He thought to himself.
'I don't know but I'm will not give her up to anybody.' His inner self said to him.
"That is my mission. Akujin will now tell you his.' Tenshi told him, even though he was only partially listening, he was still in shock from the mission she just gave him.
'My mission, Uchiha is to kill your love, Haruno Sakura. I mean think about it. What's better to live a life knowing your love is with another that might hurt her or to know that she is safe wherever she is now?' Akujin asked/told him.
Tenshi glared at him. He wasn't suppose to say that to him, only the mission. Sasuke was even more shocked now.
'Now they expect me to kill her? Damn I can't win either way with these missions. What kind of bullshit is that?' He asked himself.
'Yeah that's not fair, you should at least get a mission that gives you something good.'
'That's just it, both missions give me something good, a realm to rule, supposedly mission like these are a small price to pay for such a thing.' Sasuke thought to himself.
'I don't think so.' His inner self mumbled.
Those were the two great missions he had to choose from. The mission Akujin gave him was complete, now. After all what Akujin said was still buried deep into his mind. He was selfish and he knew it. He hurt…killed the one he loved just so another couldn't have her and so she would be safe. He looked down at her now motionless body, wondering if what he did was truly worth it now. It couldn't be changed now, that was for sure.
He would have to live with this forever. He had a plan though, a plan to bring her back. How unfortunate for him that he it wouldn't go as planned. He touched her cheek with his hand, feeling her warmth retreating from her body. He leaned down and placed a light kiss on her cold lips.
His mouth than moved to the junction of her shoulder and neck. He opened his mouth wide, his two upper canine fangs growing longer, he cut his lip, drawing blood before he brought them down, biting her. He drank a bit of her blood and let some of his blood seep into her wound before retracting his fangs and lifting his head up.
He looked at where he bit to see two holes with blood filling them. He smirked as he watched what happened next. A black circle made it's way around the two holes in her neck. Under the first circle a blue S in the form of a flame was formed and under the second a red U also in the form of a flame formed.
He took one last glance at it before straitening himself out and standing up. A slight pain made it's way from his neck threw his body. He walked to the bathroom and looked at his neck in the mirror. A circle made it's way around two holes that appeared on the junction of his neck and shoulder. Than a white S in the form of a rose formed under the first hole, and under the second a pink H in the form of a cherry blossom petal formed. He made his way back to her and leaned down so his mouth was next to her ear.
"I'll see you again, I promise that." He murmured in her ear. He would indeed see her again, that was for sure. Just not on the terms he wanted. He walked out of the room and disappeared into a black light, never seeing what happened to her next.
A light filled the room as Sakura sat up. She stood up and looked around the room, when her eyes hit the bed they widened. Her body was there surrounded by blood from a wound on her chest. Yet she was here? She looked at her hand and saw it was …transparent? She could see right threw it. What the hell was going on?
'Sakura.' A soft, famine voice called her.
'What the…?' She asked herself.
'Sakura, come towards the light. All will be revealed to you soon. Than you can set out on your journey.' It told her. She had no idea what she was talking about but never the less she followed the light thinking she could trust it. She stepped threw the light and vanished. A new beginning was set.
The next day her body was found and a funeral was held. That month was pure disaster for her friends. Neji, Naruto and Shikamaru were killed on a mission, and strangely the survivors who were with them all said they saw a black light come and suck them up. Days after Ino, TenTen and Hinata found out. They were all were so upset and saddened. The day after they found out, some rouges attacked the village and they were killed for they were too weak and tired from crying all night. Everyone who saw this swore they saw a white light come and take them away.
