Chapter 2: When trouble Kicks in

Sakura was shocked as she about 10 people ganging up on her helpless father. Her father as well as the anonymous men heard her scream and they turned their attention to her.

"Sakura, run!" her father shouted.

Sakura did not waste time standing there. She immediately started to run. Unfortunately, she has not gotten away that far yet when tow men blocked her path. After that, she cannot remember anything for one of them knocked her unconscious.

The moment she gained consciousness, she found herself sitting on a chair with her hands and feet tied up. She had her mouth covered with a hanky but her eyes were covered with none. Being an intelligent girl that she was, she took this opportunity to scan around her surroundings. It seemed like she was in some sort of warehouse. They place was dimly lighted. There are men wearing black suits around the perimeter.

She was about to continue to look around her when she realized that something, or rather someone, was missing. Where was her dad anyway? She may have been unconscious for god knows how long but still, her memory has not failed her yet. She knew that it was her father that she saw before she fainted. In fact, these men around her might be the same people that have beaten her poor dad.

"Hey." one of the men suddenly spoke. "The girl's awake." He said.


As soon as the realization of her being awake hit the men, Sakura found herself being dragged by two of them. They brought her into a room. Once inside, they threw her clumsily on the settee. During that time, Sakura swore that she would kill these bastards if she would be given a chance. But on a second thought, her chances of getting revenge would be futile because she was greatly outnumbered.

"Ahem." A man cleared out his throat.

The rosette haired girl turned her gaze towards the person who made the noise. What greeted her was a man whom she concluded to be around his late 20's or early 30's. He has jet-black hair, onyx eyes and a fair complexion. She noticed that this man has a long hair that was tied up in ponytail. To be honest with herself, the man looked like the image of beauty. If not hotness, that is.

"Hello there." He began.

Sakura stared at him and remained motionless.

The young man noticed the lack of reaction from his correspondent that he tried to find a way to make her cooperate.

"Here's the deal." He began. "I'll intsruct my boys to untie you but promise me that you won't try to run away. Aside from that, I want you to cooperate with me as go have a talk."

Sakura eyed him suspiciously. She was thinking whether to agree with him or not. In the end, she decided to accept his proposition by nodding her head once. The 'handsome' man saw this and he then snapped his fingers as a sign to his men to do his bidding. The same men who brought Sakura came to their boss' (Sakuta assume that he was their boss) aid and untied her. Sakura stretched her arms and legs as soon as she got freed from the binding.

"Feeling comfortable now?" he asked.

Sakura nodded her head in response.

"I suppose that I can now have a talk with you." He asked.

Emerald orbs stared glumly at him. "As if I have any choice." She sarcastically said.

"What did I say." The man innocently said. "Anyways, I'm Uchiha Itachi."he introduced. "You are?"

Sakura's eyebrow twitched. "Do I really have to tell you who I am?!" she asked.

"Of course." Itachi told her as-a-matter-of-factly. "That's the least info that you give to me would be your name. I don't think that you would want to be called ugly names. Or would now?" he asked.

"I don't think I would like that." She nonchalantly said. " Haruno Sakura is my name."

Itachi nodded his head. He then began to proceed on his next agenda. It was to tell her why she was here in the first place.

"Well, Sakura, you are in this sticky situation right now because of your father."

Sakura suddenly remembered her father. Where was he anyway.

"He owes me a considerable amount of money. I want him to pay me back. This is where you are going to enter my dear." He said.

"What does it have to do with me?" she gave him an inquisitive look.

"Everything." He saimply said.

"How am I suppose to do that for my father?" she asked.

Itachi gave her a meaningful smirk as he began to tell her the whole deal about their little encounter.

(A/N: Fast forward. This part is suppose to remain a secret until the next chapter comes out. You'll surely love me as I go on with my fanfic.)

Do you now understand what I wanted you to do?" Itachi asked.

"Yeah." She casually said (feeling close?).

Itachi was about to feel please with the situation when out of nowhere, Sakura asked the 'most taboo' question that a person on such kind of predicament could muster.

"What if I won't do as you asked?" Sakura inquired.

Itachi's expression suddenly darkened upon hearing her query. It took him a while before answering Sakura's question. But instead of answering her with words, Itachi rather chose to show her rather tell her. He signaled to one of his minions and the man came to him. Itachi instructed his minion something and he immediately went outside. A few moments later, the man returned in the room. This time, he was followed with another one. The next person was ushered in and he was bringing with him someone. Sakura's dad.

"Otou-san!" Sakura yelled.

She tried to reach for her father but failed miserably. She was stopped by one of the men inside the room. Sakura felt so helpless during that time. All she could do was to stare at her father who was as of now being pointed with a gun on his temple.

"So where was I?" Itachi suddenly interrupted. "Ah, yes. I was about to give you an option." He said followed by a smirk.

"Bastard." Sakura muttered.

Itachi heard that but still his smirk didn't falter. He seemed to be more please with what was happening right now.

"So Sakura. Would you do as I asked or you would like me to send you and your father to heaven. Oh wait, shouldn't I say hell?" he asked.

To be continued……
