It was an unusually quiet morning in the Leaf Village. It was usually loud, the sounds of little children playing, the adults chatting, and the Genin training and the ninja academy students as well. For some odd reason, Sasuke didn't feel like getting out of bed. He was so tired, but he didn't know why. His legs and arms felt numb, he just couldn't move.

"I'm sure Kakashi-sensei and the others won't mind if I skip out on practice today, any way I AM the number one Genin in the whole village," Sasuke thought to himself, and soon he fell back asleep.

At the usual spot were they all meet...

"Were's Sasuke?" Sakura asked as worry filled her bright green eyes.

"Don't worry Sakura, I'm sure he's just running a little late," Kakashi stated.

"Yea, he'll be here, Believe it!" Naruto exclaimed.

15 minutes later...

"I guess we should go check on him," Kakashi started. "It's unlike him to skip out on practice."

"Yea, it really is unlike him," Sakura replied. With that they headed off to the little shaggy house that Sasuke lived in. When they got there Kakashi knocked on the door. No answer. He knocked again. No answer.

"Sasuke, I'm coming in!" Kakashi announced as he opened the door. The three of them walked in and saw the sleeping form on the bed.

"Stay here," Kakashi whispered, " I'll take care of this." then Kakashi walked over towards the bed. When he was leaning over Sasuke's sleeping form, he noticed Sasuke was paler then usual. Also his breathing was off track, and his face had a good flush to it.

"Is he sick?" Kakashi thought to himself. "Sasuke," he whispered while shaking his shoulder lightly Then after that Sasuke shot up foward. His faced was covered with sweat and he was panting.

"Nice to see that you're awake," Kakashi said smiling. Sasuke looked towards Kakashi with a confused expression on his face.

"Sasuke!" Sakura cheered as she ran over to him.

"What are...you guys...doing here," Sasuke asked with a weak voice.

"Well you didn't show up for practice, and we all got worried so we came to check up on you," Sakura answered.

"Guess I should get up now," Sasuke thought as he tried to get out of bed. When he stood up. He fell foward, like he was fainting but Kakashi caught him just in time.

"Are you okay?"Kakashi asked.

"Yea, I'm just a little dizzy," Sasuke said while trying to stand up only to fall over again. Kakashi put his hand to Sasuke's forehead to see if he was running a fever.

"You're burning up," Kakashi stated.

"I'm fine, I'll get dressed and we'll head out for practice," Sasuke said while standing and heading towards his closet half limping, half walking. Sasuke grabbed his regular attire. The blue shirt with the collar with his clans symbol on the back with the white shorts. He headed towards his bathroom and grabbed his headband on the way. Once he was done he put on his blue ninja sandals he was ready.
