Okay… I did a mistake but hey! This IS my first attempt of long stories… (Sweatdrop) Okay then… Uhh here's another chappie! Enjoy! My computer was fucked up too ya know… Damn the repairer… wonders if he's dead by now…
Let me get this straight! Sakura is 17! I'm aware that I forgot to mention their age in a more specific way. Sasuke and Naruto as you might have guessed… Same age as Sakura. Neji is one year older than them. Their age gap is the same as their age in the anime!
Me: I wonder how I will make Neji stop the wedding…
Soujirou: (Taps his chin in a thoughtful way) Maybe you could make him confesses?
Me: Plain typical…
Neji: Why don't you just make Sakura cancel the wedding and we lived happily ever after?
Me: (Huffs) that's not fair for Sasu-chan!
Neji: Screw him
Sakura: That's my teammate you're insulting!
Neji: (Glares millions daggers at me)
Me: You ran into the wedding and make a fool of yourself then Sasuke and Sakura lived happily ever after OR we do things decently MY way? Take your pick (Smirks evilly)
Neji: ……… (Still thinking)
Me: (Sweatdrop) Wad the hell…?
Soujirou: (Sweatdrop) Uhh Neji? You're not REALLY stupid… are you?
Sakura: (Bonks Neji's head) you baka!
Miyabi and Soujirou: (Shakes head at Neji) Poor Neji……… He must've taken this thing harder than I thought……
Neji: ………………… (Still… still)

Keh… Keh keh… Keh…!
Sakura lay on her bed, staring at the ceiling, seemingly deep in thought. Placing the back of her palm on her forehead, she checked her own temperature. Sakura frowned.
'Holy shit! You're burning!' inner Sakura gasped. Sakura inwardly rolled her eyes at her inner, 'Come on… I've been through worse…' she thought. 'Sakura… this must not be taken lightly…' inner Sakura frowned. Sakura sighed.
Sakura grunted and slowly sat back up. She then slowly made her way downstairs, stumbling a few as she did. Walking down the long stairs, Sakura frowned, 'One thing that I hate about living in a mansion is its SO FREAKING BIG!' she thought.
Sakura sighed, 'Dammit… I bet I'm slower than an old lady…' she thought. 'You're sick! What'd you expect? Prancing around like antelopes?' inner Sakura crossed her arms. Sakura sighed again, 'I do not need to hear you ranting right now…' she silently thought.
Sakura growled lightly, "ALL RIGHT ALREADY!" she breathed out as loud as she could muster as she opened the door. Sakura blinked when she saw who it was.
"Sakura…" Sasuke gave her a smile. Sakura blinked again, "Sasuke?" she coughed out, covering her mouth as she did, of course. She then noticed that her sound changed drastically. As if something had drained them out. Sasuke's face was filled with concern as he saw this, "Sakura… are you okay?" he asked.
'Well… She's just fine… despite the fact that she had a fever over 40 degrees and coughing like there's no tomorrow… OF COURSE SHE'S NOT OKAY!' inner Sakura blurted out. Sakura groaned at the upcoming headache, 'And you're making it worse…' she thought.
"Sakura?" Sasuke called. Sakura flashed him a small smile, "Hm?" she groaned. Sasuke pushed her gently back inside the house and then checked her temperature with his forehead on her own. Sakura sighed and shook her head gently, "I'm fine…" she assured. Sasuke frowned, obviously not buying it.
Sasuke then lead her to the living room and sat down on the black fluffy cushion. Sakura relaxed her head on the armrest of the cushion. Sasuke looked at her in pure concern, not knowing what to do.
"So… what were you here for?" Sakura asked in a breathy tone. Sasuke shifted, 'I don't think this is the right time to say it…' he thought. Sakura blinked at him showing that she's listening. Sasuke sighed, "I was actually here to arrange our marriage date… but…" he was interrupted by Sakura.
"Sasuke… I'm not feeling quite well… Will you come back another day? Maybe… tomorrow perhaps?" Sakura smiled apologetically at him. Sasuke nodded. Sakura felt guilty about it so when he was about to leave, Sakura just gave a quick hug and a peck on the cheek for him.
That's the least she could do for him right now…
Sasuke smiled and headed towards his own home. Sakura closed the door and began to walk back to her room. As she walks back to her room, her legs become wobbly and her head starts to spin rapidly. Then… Darkness envelopes her.
"I'm back!" Soujirou called into the house. Receiving no reply, he assumed that Sakura was asleep, 'She IS sick… I better cook dinner now…' he thought. Soujirou made his way top the kitchen. As he walk pass a hallway, he stopped as a flash of pink was seen on the floor. Soujirou's eyes darkened.
"SAKURA!" he shouted as he quickly made his way towards his unconscious sister. He shook her shoulders lightly, "Sakura!" he called. Soujirou frowned as she didn't make any move, 'I thought she was supposed to rest!' he thought. Without any hesitation, Soujirou quickly picked her up and bring her to the hospital.
Meanwhile, Neji was lying on his bed just staring at the ceiling. He shifted to his sides and tried to sleep. Just as he was about to drift into La-La land, his eyes shot open and quickly sat up, "What in hell…" he thought aloud. 'Something is wrong… I can feel it… But what?' he wondered.
Neji decided to take a walk in his mansion garden to clear his head off, '………… and find a way to stop the wedding…' he added. Surprisingly inner Neji have not yet appeared. Neji spotted Hinata rushed passed him, "Hinata-sama…?" Neji called. Hinata stopped in her tracks and turned to face her cousin.
'All the time he still calls me Hinata-sama…' Hinata sighed at the thought. "Hai, Neji nii-san?" she asked gently. "You seem to be in a hurry… Where are you going?" Neji asked. Hinata indicated sternness in her cousin's voice, "Hai… To the hospital" she answered. Neji cocked an eyebrow, "This late at night?" he asked. (Yes… 8 something is late for me)
Hinata fidgeted nervously, she is much aware of Neji nii-san's feelings towards Sakura-chan, "Ano… Sou desu…" she answered timidly. Neji sighed at his cousin's shyness, "I'm coming along…" he said and went to grab his white jacket. "Ah…" she was about to protest but…
"It's my duty, Hinata-sama…" he said. Hinata cringed at his words and sighed, "All right…" she replied and went towards the door. Neji followed suit.
------------------At the hospital-------------------
"So… you're telling me that she got sick because she was too… worried?" Soujirou quirked an eyebrow. Shizune nodded. Tsunade tucked Sakura in the not-so-comfortable hospital bed and sighed, "How did ever get such a reckless apprentice?" she asked. "Anyways… the fever is lowered. She shouldn't have any problem now…" Shizune scribbled something on the board she's holding.
Sakura stirred in her bed, "Ugh?" she groaned. "Saku-chan!" Soujirou went to his sister's side and smiled down at her. Sakura smiled back, "By the way… why am I here?" Sakura asked curiously. "You blacked out" Tsunade sighed. "Eh? Tsunade-sama? Why are you here?" Sakura asked.
Soujirou explained wad had happened. "OH…" Sakura mouthed an 'o'. "Well I'll just leave you to rest…" Tsunade nodded at the siblings and walked out with Shizune.
Sakura turned to look at her brother and grinned, "Spill" she said. "Huh?" Soujirou blinked. Sakura rolled her eyes, "I knew I didn't collapsed like that! No way! I'm a medic aren't i?" Sakura huffed and crossed her arms over her chest. Soujirou sweatdropped, "Saku-chan… it's true" he said.
"Nuh uh! I don't believe it" Sakura huffed.
"……………………" in Soujirou's mind was, 'let's just leave her be…'
Sakura then can hear voices from outside of the room.
Seriously… I can't believe my cousin is such a…… a…… klutz? I mean… we practically walked the whole hospital and she didn't even know where we are going.
"Hinata-sama… Where are we supposed to go?" I asked for the god-knows-how-much time.
"Eeto…" my clan heiress laughed nervously.
I let out a sigh. And to think she WORKED here. Calm down… calm down…
What ARE we doing here in the first place?
"Hinata-sama… What ARE we doing here?" I twitched slightly out of my impatience.
Just then I heard a voice, "Hinata-Chan! In here!" I raised an eyebrow and looked at my cousin. She smiled and replied, "H-hai!" she stuttered. What a klutz.
