Chapter 6- Away

Sakura and Sasuke...

"Yep, so nobody in this realm actually knows that I'm a mermaid cuz they'll only freak if they knew and mermaids are only legends that they think are fake but are actually real. And also... can you just do me this teensy weensy favor?" Sakura said blocking the doorway. Her tone changed from dominant to one of a weak little fragile girl with a problem and she used the infamous PUPPY DOG LOOK!!!! Dun dun dun!


"If I act... weird later... please just go along with me okay?" Sakura pleaded as her eyes seemed to become tear like.

"Fine..." Sasuke said looking away.

"SUCCESS!!!!!" Sakura thought happily as they pushed open the door and walked into the busy place full of people. Suddenly a green blur came apon them.

"THE CHERRY BLOSSOM HAS RETURNED!!!!!" The thick-browed, bowl-cutted haired guy in a green spandex suit shouted as Sakura only hid behind Sasuke. "..."

Sasuke stared at the opposite guy, his mouth twitching.

The guy stared back.

"Lee?" Sasuke said, Sakura blinked.

"Sasuke-kun, you know him?" Sakura asked coming out from behind Sasuke.

"Sasuke-kun what are you doing with my princess?????" Lee bursted out pointing accusingly at Sasuke who was glaring at Lee who was completely ignorant and dangerous aura coming towards him.

"He's from my village- Konoha..." Sasuke muttered. Sakura smiled at him.

"He's being more open to me... I'm glad..." Sakura thought and just said with a smile, "Oh... I see..."

"AND how do you know Sakura-chan, Sasuke-kun?" Lee asked suspiciously.

"He's my boyfriend!" Sakura said abruptly before Sasuke was able to say anything. Sakura then gave Sasuke 'the look' which Sasuke gladly glared back.

"So... the youthful cherry blossom is already taken by Sasuke-kun..." Lee said sadly. "Is this true Sasuke-kun?" Lee asked Sasuke who nodded slightly making Sakura sigh and smile.

"NOW, NOW LEE!!! I'm sure you'll find someone!" Sakura said patting Lee on the back who looked at her with hope.

"You really think so?"

"YUP! OF COURSE!!!" Sakura said with a smile.

"Thank you Sakura-chan!" Lee said, hugged her and then gleefully left on his way.

"You really think so?" Sasuke then asked when Lee was out of sight.

"Not at all..." Sakura mumbled giving a big sigh. "Come on... let's go get those tomatoes..." she said, but before she was able to take one step, she was pulled back by none other than Sasuke. "Sasuke-kun?" Sakura asked and then blushed a little when she noticed how close they were.

"Itachi's chakra... I can feel it... let's go." Sasuke said and turned to go back through the corridor.

"But the tomatoes..."

"Killing Itachi is more important" He said with a glare letting go of Sakura.

"Of course..." Sakura mumbled and hesitantly followed Sasuke. "DAMN!!! Stupid Itachi for ruining my time with Sasuke-kun... sigh..."

Hinata and Naruto...

Hinata and Naruto visited the hospital three times already due to Hinata's excessive times of fainting... but all bad things will come to an end sooner or later and now they were back at the ramen stand underwater where Naruto was eating and Hinata was counting how much he was eating. Her eyes were set on his stomache that never seemed to grow any bigger no matter how much he ate.

Suddenly a strong wave of aura sent a shiver down Hinata's spine.

"Naruto-kun..." She mumbled with a nervous tug at his shirt. She was getting nervous now, not because of Naruto over eating but because she just felt a sudden chill. Strong chakra that close to her sister Tenten's chakra.

"Yeah, I felt it too..." Naruto said wiping his mouth. Hinata looked at the table counter and wondered exactly how many bowls did he eat...?

"It's the same as that time... Tenten... and Yui..." Hinata mumbled.


"Hey! Guys!!! Hinata-sama!!!" The blue haired, golden eyed mermaid yelled as she came out of the realm between human and mermaid happily with a slight blush. She quickly saw the group of mermaids and quickly swam to them, her humanly feets changing to tails as she went.

"Sora? What's wrong with you?" Ino asked noticing the blush.

"I just met the hottest human guy ever!!!!!" Sora squealed remembering her little 'encounter'.

"Really? Do tell." Hinata said with a smile.

"Well... he has the prettiest long black hair... and the most gorgeous and mysterious red eyes!!!!! Unlike Yui's dull red ones." She said while blushing.

"Our Sora finally grew up!" Sakura said with a smile.

"Sakura-sama!" Sora said with a flushed face.

"Haha, so... how sexy was he from a scale from 1 to 10?" Tenten asked with a nudge.

"... Well... I'd have to give him a 10." Sora said with a beet-red face.

"Hey wat'cha talking about?" a new voice said, entering the conversation. Everyone turned to look at the black haired, blue eyed girl who was eating dango(A/N they're underwater... how can they eat like that? Don't ask... I have no clue as well...).

"Hey Kana." Everyone said.

"KANA GIVE ME BACK MY DANGO!!!!!" someone screamed. Behind Kana was a mad brown haired, red eyed mermaid said who was... mad?

"How the hell did Yui find out??? Soi was suppose to cover for me though!!!!!" Kana cried.

"Sorry Kana! She made me tell!!!!!" another mermaid behind Yui cried out. She had red hair and blue eyes.

A little while later...

"So... Tenten-sama, what were you talking about? Before we rudely interrupted you guys..." Yui asked holding Kana in a headlock.

"Well, Sora fell in love with a human." Tenten said smiling which made Kana, Yui and Soi pale.

"What do you mean... fell in love with a human Sakura-sama?" Soi asked with a worried expression.

"Sora-chan met a very cute guy and it was love at first sight!" Sakura explained simply.

"Is... something wrong?" Hinata asked. Kana, Yui and Soi exchanged glances.

"Ino-sama..." Kana mumbled.

"Hm?" Ino asked with a confused expression.

"You guys... DO know how mermaids die right?" Yui asked the five clueless mermaids.

"Yeah we do, only if we're drained of power right?" Sakura said.

"That's only one way. There are two ways." Kana said with two fingers up and still eating the dango which Yui gladly took away from her.

"But we were taught there was only one way... you guys too..." Tenten said unsurely.

"Yeah, we just came from your father... apparently... your cousin Riri just passed away..." Soi mumbled leaving the five mermaids in shock.

"But HOW? Riri is the strongest mermaid I know!" Tenten said in shock.

"Apparently, she fell in love with a human... someone called Lee and she gave him her life energy so he could survive an attack that was supposed to take away his life. Some guy named Gaara or the sand and him faught at the preliminary matches of some chuunin exam." Kana said boredly.

"I still don't understand." Tenten said in confusion.

"Don't you understand??? Mermaids are positive signs, humans are also positive signs but when they combine they make negative. Mermaids that fall in love with humans make the human's life in danger. And we, the mermaids who are not allowed to fall in love with them are the ones to pay! We will sacrifice ourselves for them because thats just how we are. That's the only other way we could die." Yui said while the five mermaids were in shock.
