A/N- Written for alena s anigor, who requested SasuSaku and the theme, "Drown".


Sasuke stands in the rain because it gives him the feeling of being washed away, back, back to the days where the Uchiha's were a people and not a memory, where ignorance reigned blissfully.

He sees the reflections in the rain. Sometimes, they flash gold and bright, sometimes, they smile with mismatched eyes.

Most of all, he thinks the rain is like tears, tears which begged him to stop, to stay, to let him be loved again.

Sasuke stands in the rain, and embraces it with the fevered hope of a missed chance.

The rain is very beautiful, he decides.
