On with the story

The day had gone by as usual for Ino. She had trained and hung out with Shikamaru, Chouji and Asuma-sensei. After that she had met up with Hinata and they had had fun talking and laughing and just being girls that was until they were walking towards Hinata's house. They had decided to have a sleepover. They were just going round the corner when suddenly someone bumped into him. It turned out to be Naruto who was as always arguing with Sasuke while walking backwards.

Ino's pov

"Hey Naruto watch where you are going" I said to the blonde haired boy

"Oh hey Ino sorry about that but you know Sasuke was being a idiot as usual"

"It's okay Naruto" Hinata replied while blushing like there was no tomorrow. I couldn't help but giggle at her.

"Hey Hinata I didn't notice you there" Naruto grinned at Hinata causing the poor girl to stutter and blush while replying a quiet "its okay" to him.

While this was happening I heard someone talk to me.

"Hey Ino pig. What do you want" Sakura sneered

"Listen Sakura In case you haven't noticed, I don't like you so therefore i ain't here to talk to you. Now since you asked so politely",I said sarcastly "I'm here to talk to Sasuke . Move aside girl you are wasting my time"

"Hey Sasuke-kun" I greeted him before hugging him. Hey he let me hug him so why not take the opportunity.

"Hmm" he replied

"Let him go Ino. Why are you so stupid? He don't even like you!" sakura shouted

"Did I say he did? Shut up because you chat waffle"

"Whatever just let him go you slut"

"You should talk. I'm not the one that goes off clinging onto him like my life depended on it"

"Don't you dare talk to me like that you no good sluty bimbo!"

I tensed and I think Sasuke felt it since I was still hugging him. Being called a bimbo hurt. Yes I was blonde with blue eyes so what. Before I could reply I was surprised when Sasuke talked.

"Sakura you are annoying" he simply said before he shrugged me off gently and walked away .I looked over at sakura and saw that she had a hurt expression on her face. For once I felt sorry for her I wanted to comfort her but before I could do anything she shot me a glare before running after Sasuke. When was she ever going to learn? She was like a lost puppy always coming back for more.

Sasuke's pov

I don't know what came over me. When Sakura insulted the Yamanaka girl I felt her tense I knew Sakura had hit a nerve so I don't know why I did but I looked at Sakura and told she was annoying. I don't know what's happening to me. Whenever I'm near the Yamanaka girl, something comes over me. It's like she does something to me. I feel like I have to protect her but at the same time not spoil her. No I can't think like that. I'm Sasuke Uchiha and I don't care about anything but avenging my clan. I sound like a bastard but if you had a past like mine you'd act just the same. I have to be strong or else. My thoughts were broken off when I sensed Sakura's presence following me. I turned and looked at her.

"What do you want Sakura"

"Erm I just thought we could hang around together you know since we are a team and all" she said

"No" was my simple reply. I walked away once again wanting to be alone. Luckily this time she didn't follow so I went to the training grounds. I spent hours training and didn't even realise that it was getting dark. When I did realise I decided to go home eat, change then go out for a walk in the park.

When I got there I walked to the highest peak in the park and lay on my back. I sat there and just watched the stars. Soon I drifted off to sleep. Hey I had been training I was bound to be tired.

Ino's Pov

We said bye to Naruto and walked to Hinata's house. When we got to her house I couldn't help teasing Hinata about Naruto. This caused her to blush. I told her about my argument with sakura and how Sasuke had reacted.

"Ino I know you like Sasuke but do you think it's worth all this. I mean Sasuke doesn't even seem interested in either you or Sakura. I don't want my best friend getting hurt so please don't get your hopes up. I know you won't give up on him but please Ino be careful" Hinata suddenly Said.

"I know Hinata but I can't help what I feel. I really like him" I said but I don't know I suddenly felt sad. Tears stared falling down my cheeks. I know I'm being but like I said the Uchiha boy had had an impact on me. I'm not scared to say that I even love him. I'm scared of the rejection I'm going to have to face sooner or later.

Anyways hours passed and Hinata and I enjoyed our selves at her sleepover. I even got to meet her cousin Neji who I'd briefly met at the chunin exams. He was quite good looking but not my type. Neji was actually fun to talk to and he even gave some pointers on how to improve my jutsus.Hinata told me that he had a crush on a girl named Tenten so i couldn't help teasing him about it.Hinata and i played all the sleepover games and we even had a mid-night feast but soon Hinata told me she was tired so she went to bed.When everyone went to sleep I couldn't sleep. I kept thinking of what Hinata had said and Sasuke's behaviour earlier. Looking at Hinata I saw she was fast asleep. I grabbed a jacket and put it over my pyjamas that consisted of a light blue tank top and trousers. I did the hand signs and disappeared in a puff of smoke only to appear in the park. I walked to the small hill that Shikamaru normally sat on to watch the clouds. As I got near I noticed a person who seemed to be lying on the ground in the moonlight. I walked nearer curious to see who it was. Imagine my surprise when I saw Sasuke sleeping quite peacefully on the ground. He looked so innocent. To think this was the same cold and distant boy I knew. I walked nearer and sat down next to him. Almost subconsciously I reached out and touched his cheek. He didn't stir so I just sat there next to him and watched the stars lost in my own thoughts. The stars were beautiful so was the moon.As I watched i saw a shooting star but before i could make a wish Sasuke began tossing and turning and thrashing around violently in his sleep. His cursed seal began to glow an eiree black colour.

Suddenely he was screaming

"no no noooooooooo Itachi whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?"

He looked like he was having a nightmare but I could tell there was also something up.I reacted on my instincts. I put his head on my lap and began rocking him while whispering soothing words to him. He slowly opened his eyes and then violently jerked.

He looked at me and began to shake before I knew it, the normally cold, distant, mysterious and cool Uchiha was crying. He then pulled me into a hug and I did my best to comfort him, feeling his warm tears soak my neck and jacket.

What was wrong with him? Whatever it was I was going to help him get through it. Slowly I whispered into his ear

"Sasuke you are not alone. I'm here for you. Please let me help you"

I felt him tighten his hold on me. I nodded then did the hand signed causing us to disappear in a puff of blue and silver smoke.
