Author's Notes: Hi, it's me again. This is my second Neji/Tenten fanfic. Hope you enjoy this one!
Summary: What happens, when there is a childish Sasuke clinging to a person who he thinks is his mommy? Cute? Yeah, right. Disturbing? Very. Especially when that Sasuke is 18 years old!
Chapter 1 – Where's My Mommy?
They say that a child will always love its mother no matter what. It would follow her around and try to impress her in the most amusing ways. But what if that child is an eighteen year old prodigy?
Team Gai quietly walked down the hospital wing. They were going to a certain room with an S rank mission. As they walked, the nurses started whispering things to each other, mostly things about them.
Each step was bringing them closer and closer to their very tricky mission. It was too serious that the Hokage couldn't even tell them what they were going to encounter. They had to find out themselves.
Tenten gulped. She was a bit nervous. Having a mission in a hospital was kind of scary. Well, it was scary for her. After all, it was their first mission in a hospital.
With Lee, he was a bit excited yet a little nervous too. This was a very great challenge for him and his teammates.
And, of course, Neji was calm, a bit too calm. He could handle anything that came in his way. He was, by the way, Hyuuga Neji.
They finally arrived. Neji opened the door. What they saw was the most shocking thing they ever saw.
Sasuke, the great Uchiha Sasuke, was crying! C-R-Y-I-N-G! He was sitting on his bed, cuddled in a ball with his chin resting on his knees. He looked so helpless and scared.
Wait a sec…this was their mission? This was what the Hokage was all worked up about?
Sakura was there trying to comfort him, while Naruto was trying to feed him some food.
But Sasuke was just too stubborn. He kept on wailing and screaming. Neji thought he was pathetic.
None of them looked like they noticed the entrance of the three (Neji and team).
"Sasuke, please stop crying…" Sakura said softly, rubbing his back. She wiped the tears of Sasuke's eyes.
"Yeah, Sasuke-teme," Naruto stated, patting Sasuke's head. "Come on, eat some soup. You haven't eaten in days."
Sasuke shook his head. His eyes were red and puffy from all his crying.
"I don't want to eat," he sniffed. More tears flowed from his eyes. "I want my mommy. I want to see her."
The great prodigy, Uchiha Sasuke, was crying for his mommy. What a loser…
Yet it seemed strange for him to have this kind of behavior…
"Don't' worry," Sakura smiled a little bit. "Your mommy is coming. She's going to be here very soon."
"B-But that's what you told me four days ago," the frightened Uchiha said. "And none of those girls you showed me was my mommy."
"Sasuke-teme, we don't know what your mommy looked like so Hokage-sama told all those girls to come here," Naruto stated.
"It's very hard to find your mommy," Sakura wiped off more of his tears.
Sasuke sniffed again. "Mommy left me here?"
"No, of course not, she was just…just…"
The pink-haired kunoichi couldn't think of what to say.
"Uhmm…there is another girl who is coming today. She might be your mother."
"My mommy has long brown hair and brown eyes. Sometimes, she puts her hair up in buns."
Sakura and Naruto were dumb-founded with their jaws dropping to the ground.
"Sasuke-teme, why didn't you tell us that before?" Naruto yelled, pulling out his hair.
Sasuke started crying again; obviously he was frightened by Naruto's shouting. He didn't like it, when people yelled at him. His mommy would usually comfort him, when that happens. But since his mommy wasn't there, he started crying even louder.
In the background, Team Gai was covering there ears from the piteous crying. It must be stopped before everyone goes deaf!
"Tenten, it may be that Sasuke is referring to you," Lee stated to the bun-haired kunoichi.
"I'm not sure Lee. We might upset him even more, if he doesn't think I'm his mommy," Tenten replied. (They can still hear each other with their ears covered?)
"Tenten, you're our only hope," Lee encouraged. He smiled at her, and she smiled back.
The weapon mistress walked toward the prodigy.
Sakura and Naruto looked up at her and smiled. They took some steps back and went to the door to join Neji and Lee.
Sasuke had buried his face in his knees. He didn't notice Tenten in front of him until she patted his head and said, "Sasuke, what's wrong?"
He looked up. His eyes widened as he saw the face in front of him. The one he knew was of his mother's.
"Mommy, is it really you?"
Tenten smiled at him. "Yes, Sasuke, I'm here now."
He stood up and hugged her ever so tightly. "Mommy, I missed you! Don't leave me again, okay?"
"Okay, Sasuke, I'll never leave you again."
Sasuke pouted, as if he didn't believe her. "Promise?"
They looked at each other, and Tenten giggled. "I promise."
Sasuke hugged her again.
From afar, they looked more like they were reunited lovers than reunited family, since Sasuke was taller than Tenten, and they were already eighteen for God's sake!
Sasuke relaxed in his 'mother's' embrace. But then he noticed something missing.
"Mommy, where's Daddy?" he quirked up.
Tenten looked at his innocent face. "Uhmm…uhh…well…"
She turned to Neji and Lee, and pointed to them. "Look, Sasuke, Daddy is somewhere there."
Sasuke looked at where Tenten was pointing. He first stared at Lee then to Neji.
He pointed to Neji. "Mommy, he looks like Daddy, but his hair is too long, and he's blind."
Neji twitched. How dare he call Hyuuga Neji blind!
Tenten faked a laugh. "Uhmm…Sasuke, he's not blind. He just doesn't have any pupils. He's your daddy."
Sasuke shook his head. "But, Mommy, he doesn't look like me."
"Well, it's because you look more like me."
They looked at the mirror, and Sasuke smiled. "Mommy is pretty."
Tenten blushed. "Oh, thank you, Sasuke. You're such a good boy."
"I love you, Mommy."
"Uhmm…I love you too?"
The prodigy smiled. "Mommy, kiss!"
Everyone (except Sasuke) looked surprised. Neji clenched his fists. That Uchiha, he has no right to do such a crime. Even if he was insane, it was illegal to kiss Tenten! Only the great Hyuuga Neji can do that!
Tenten debated on whether to do it or not. In the end, she decided that she had to. If she didn't, all hell will break out.
Sasuke brought his face closer to Tenten's. Their lips met.
Sakura fainted. Lee caught her. Naruto took a picture, and Neji punched the wall.
The four of them left the room.
A few minutes later, Tenten came out of the room and sighed in relief. (They didn't make out, okay?)
After she and her 'son' kissed, she fed him some soup and tucked him to bed.
Her earlier companions were waiting for her.
"Sorry for all the trouble, Tenten," Sakura said.
"It's okay. But I have one question: why is Sasuke acting like a four year old kid?" Tenten wiped the sweat off her face.
Sakura looked down. "Well, when we were in a mission five days ago, Sasuke receive a sharp blow on the head by our target assassins. We brought him to the hospital and found out that he got amnesia. He only remembers four years of his life. So now, he thinks he's four years old."
"Hokage said that his memory would come back, but it might take years," Naruto said. "She was really upset."
"So this is our mission?" Lee asked. "We have to retrieve Sasuke's memory?"
Sakura and Naruto nodded.
"Hn," Neji said. "I think he's just faking it."
"Neji, give him a break," Tenten stated. "You know what condition he is in right now."
"Whatever. I still think he's faking it just to get some attention."
