Hi there, first of all, I want to thank my reviewers and readers out there! I know I haven't updated super fast, but fast enough to keep some suspense I guess, lol. Please, enjoy the last chapter of Beauty and the Beast, and no flamers! Lol! On with the story now!


Chapter 7: A Tale of Love

"No, no!" Sakura yells and hugs the lifeless beast. "No, please don't leave me!" She yells into his chest. "I love you." She whispers softly and cries into Sasuke's chest. The last cherry blossom petal fell down and it's magical glow, disappeared… She sobbed harder and harder into his chest. Sakura wiped some tears out of her eyes, but they just kept coming back. She rested her head upon Sasuke's chest. Lightening and thunder were heard and saw in the darkened sky. It started to rain hard but then something odd happened. The rain wasn't coming down in a water formation but in colored streaks. The raindrops fell to the ground with the colors pink, green, blue, and yellow. Sakura got up from her position and stared at the streaks of colors.

"What…is going on…?" She asked herself. Sparkles and glitter started to also fall down with the streaks. Sakura stared in amazement at the scene before her. Never in her life has she seen this happen before, never had she really seen a beast, or talking objects before. Sakura thought that it was all fiction and fairy tales, but she was wrong, for she fell in love with a fairy tale character, the Beast.

Naruto, and the others went to the rooftop where they saw the scene of a lifeless beast, sobbing girl, and colored rain. Hinata and the girls saw the beast's dead body and Sakura just crying on it. They also broke out into small sobs. The boys bowed their heads and did not speak at all.

Sakura continued to cry but then stopped her sobbing when Sasuke's body was lifting up off the ground and into the sky. He began to float and twirl in the air, still lifeless. Sakura moved back a bit and looked shocked and confused. Sasuke was wrapped up in his own cape now and started to move on his own. His eyes still closed.

Slowly, Sasuke put out with left paw, and it transformed into a human hand. The same with the right hand happened. Then he stuck out his right leg and it became a human leg as did the left. Lastly, his whole body became human, with a broad and lean torso, and handsome face. Sakura now really saw what her love looked like. He had black spiky hair, pale skin, and he looked muscular but not over buffed. He looked flawless and perfect in her eyes.

Sasuke was slowly set upon the ground gently. The rain had stopped and it was just dark now. Sakura walked over to Sasuke and was about to touch his back, when he started to move. He got up from the ground, back facing Sakura, and he started to examine his hands. He smiled and turned to face Sakura.

"Sakura…it me, Sasuke." Sasuke said and grabbed her hands. She was unsure for a minute, so she stared into his eyes and spoke.

"It is you…" Sakura replied softly while the two stared into each other's eyes. She ran her hand through his raven hair and smile at him. Sasuke leaned down towards her and she tip toed up. Sasuke presses his lips lightly on hers and she kisses him back. She wraps her arms around his neck and he wraps his arms around her waist.

Suddenly, a firework is shot out of nowhere, but it's for a happy ending. As the firework flew up in the sky, and exploded, the sparks fall down on the palace and start to change the scenery. The gargoyles are gone and replaced with white baby angels. The palace is no longer spooky looking, but beautiful. The darkened day now shines bright upon the palace and its people. Naruto, Neji, Shikamaru, Ino, Tenten, Hinata, and the others in the house, are starting to change back as well. ( Picture them like in the series, but without the headband or weapons, and with fancy looking clothes, lol.) The girls had stopped their crying a long time ago and were now looking at the new bodies. Same as the guys.

Sasuke and Sakura stopped their kiss and looked at all their joyful friends. Sasuke went over to the guys and Sakura went over to the girls.

"You girls look amazing, and might I say, taller in your human forms." Sakura said/laughed. The girls giggled and Ino spoke.

"Well, you try being a feather duster than! Haha!" Ino laughed and all four girls enjoyed them selves.

"Look at me!" Naruto yelled. He was pointing to himself.

"Ah quiet Naruto." Shikamaru said.

"So, is this the new couple?" Tenten asked and grinned with everyone else. She was by the way pointing to Sasuke and Sakura. Both nodded and Sasuke picked Sakura up and swung her around in a dancing type of form. (Scene CHANGE!)

Sasuke and Sakura were now dancing at the wedding in the palace ballroom. Their song was Hinata's favorite. Sakura wore her yellow/golden dress from the last time she was at the palace and Sasuke wore his same attire from before, but only a little more fitting. At the end of the song, Sasuke and Sakura kissed once again. Other couples started to join in on the dance floor, like Tenten and Neji, and Shikamaru and Ino.

"Ah, what wonders can love bring…" Naruto said. Chouji, Shino, and Kiba stared at him like he had 5 heads.

"What?" Naruto asked. They shook their heads and laughed at Naruto.

"Hey Naruto, heads up!" Kiba said. Hinata was coming their way.

"Hello Naruto-kun." She said softly.

"Hello Hinata!" Naruto grinned.

"Would you like to dance?" She asked softly again and blushed.

"Yes I would!" Naruto took Hinata arm and ran onto the dance floor. Everyone surrounded Sasuke and Sakura as they danced their last song together and kissed once more. Clapping and cheering was heard. Sasuke held Sakura's hand and they looked into each other's eyes.

"Sakura, I love you." Sasuke said it loud enough for everyone to hear. Sakura was about to cry out of happiness but spoke then.

"I love you too, Sasuke." And she hugged her prince.

" Its strange how love works. One minute you could hate a person and the next minute, you could fall in love with them. It's always the person you hate the most is the person who you love and care for deeply." Kakashi said and everyone turned to look at him.

"What?" Kakashi asked. Sakura shook her head at her father but smiled at him and he smiled back. They resumed to dancing and from that day on, Sasuke and Sakura were always together and they never fought nor complained about anything, cause all the every really need was………each other.

Tale as old as time,

Song as old as rhine,

Beauty and the Beast.
