Dream of thought

Chapter 1: Eternal wounds

Sakura's P.O.V

"NO!"(gasping for air) "Huh? What? Oh, it's just a dream." Hi. My name is Haruno Sakura. As you can tell, that was a nightmare. The same nightmare I've been having for a month now. IT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY!

"Sakura! Are you ok?" Tenten, a friend of mine, who was sleeping over, called as she rushed into the room. (a/n: Tenten was up really late) "What's wro-" she stopped and looked at me. I was drenched in a cold sweat. "The dream again?"

"Y-yeah" I answered trying to calm myself down.

She then walked over to me and hugged me in a comforting gesture. "Why don't you tell me what it's about." She suggested. At that moment I stared up at her eyes. I couldn't tell her my dream was-my dream was-my dream was about him.

"No it's late. I should go back to sleep." I said quickly.

"Fine. But we'll talk about it some other time. Ok?"

"Sure" I said. Then I tried to get back to sleep. Oh, and F.Y.I. it's 2 in the morning and in 4 days it will be my 16th birthday! But I …I can't get him off my mind. I don't know what to do, AND THIS STUPID NIGHTMARE ISN'T HELPING AT ALL!

The next day Tenten and I got up, got dressed, ate breakfast, said our goodbyes, and went our separate ways. On my way to my destination I stopped by Ino-pig's flower shop to pick up some flowers. Then I continued on. When I got to my destination I went inside and asked for Hinata and Naruto's rooms so could visit them. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm at the hospital.

On they're way back from they're mission they were ambushed by some sound-nin. Naruto, I guess, was knocked out from the very beginning. Which left Hinata all alone to defeat them.

Flash back

I was out in the woods, when I heard metal clashing. I went to go check it out. When I got to the area that the supposed clashing came from I gasped at the sight! Hinata was standing in front of a knocked out Naruto, gasping for air!

"Hinata what happened!" I screamed.

"I…"she paused to breath "I protected…Naruto-kun." With that she fell unconscious. I ran over to both of the unconscious bodies that lay be for me.

I carried them back to the village. When I entered the gates I headed strait to the Hokaga, Tsunade-sama. When I got to her office, she got right to work on healing them.

When I got to Hinata's room I opened the door. "Hinata?" I called as I walked into the room. "Hinata! Hinata were are you? Hinata!" I ran right out the door, down the hall and into Naruto's room. Naruto was awake, and sitting in the chair next to him was…

"Hinata!" I gasped. "What are you doing out of bed! You should be resting!"

"N-Naruto-kun was t-the o-one who got i-injured so I c-came to v-visit him and m-make sure h-he's o-ok"

It was silent for a few minutes.

"Oh." That was all I could say. I understood what she felt. Caring for someone so much you would put your life on the line for them, always caring for them more then yourself. Yeah I knew how that felt. She cares for Naruto a lot. I'm surprised that idiot hasn't realized yet. "So Naruto, how are you feeling? Do you still have a headache?"

"Yes, but I'm feeling better." He answered back.

"Well that's good. How are you feeling, Hinata?" I asked curiously.

"I feel…b-better. All I n-needed w-was a good n-nights rest." She answered blushing and playing with her fingers. Yep. That's typical Hinata for you.

All of a sudden the door opened and in came the nurse. She gasped at the sight of Hinata out of bed. "Hinata-chan! What do you think you're doing? As your mother and a nurse, it's my responsibility for your health! You need your rest." She said sternly to her daughter.

Hinata stood up instantly, "I don't need anything!" She screamed. Naruto and I were stunned at what she was doing. "I'm fine, and I know Tsunada-sama said I shouldn't get up, but I just used up too much chakra. (sp?)I don't have any injuries! So I'd like it if you would stop bothering me about that!" Her mother/nurse, Naruto, and I were still in shock! But within an instant Hinata's mother, Kurumi shook it away. She sighed heavily and nodded her head. "Thank you very much." Hinata said as she sat down. Then Mrs. Kurumi Hyuga walked towards Naruto and did her usual check-up. When she was finished she kissed her shy, not so shy right now, daughter good-bye and left.

"Sakura-chan, are you feeling alright?" Naruto asked with a bit of caserne in his voice, "Is there something wrong? You're not smiling like usual."

"Huh? Oh I'm sorry Naruto. What did you say?" I had been thinking about that dream…and him.

"Dose it still hut?" I had no clue what he meant. Did what hurt? It became silent while I thought.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

Hinata must have read he's mind or something, because right away she asked, "Do t-the wounds still h-hurt? The o-ones he g-gave y-you?" At that moment it struck me, they were talking about my heart's wounds. The ones he gave me when he left Kanoha. The reason for my nightmares, the one I loved that left me. The one I will never forget. Him.

"No, of course not. I'm totally over that." I knew I was just lying to my self. But I couldn't tell them the truth. I don't want them to think I'm weak.

"Are you sure?" He asked. I nodded my head and gave him a smile, a fake one may I add.

No matter how hard I wish, I know I can't get over these wounds.

Are they deep?

Yes.

Are the painful?

Of course.

Are they eternal?

They're pretty close. I guess in a way u could call them eternal. In fact maybe they are eternal.
