Ch. 19: The End?
As Sakura neared her door, she pulled out her key. She unlocked and opened the door, only to find the walls covered in blood.
"What's the matter? Holy shit."
She saw her Aunt, who was nailed to the wall, and ran to her. She heard a low moan as her Aunt tried to speak.
"Sakura, please move on and be happy, forget about me. I know that boy will take care of you for me. Please….please…please." Her word were slurred because of the sloshing of blood in her lungs.
"AUNTY! NO, PLEASE DON'T DIE!"
Sakura slumped on the floor crying. Sasuke ran over to her and held her.
"No Sasuke, don't. I…I…I need too get my stuff, so we can go. I'll be right back."
Sasuke didn't understand how she could just go on, but then again, he didn't hear her Aunt's last words. Sakura slowly wiped the tears from her eyes as she went to get her things. When Sakura opened her door, she paled. Ino, Shikamaru, Hinata, Naruto, Neji, and Tenten were all nailed to her wall. Blood was flowing every where, but they weren't dying. Tenten looked up at her with tear-filled eyes.
"SASUKE! I NEED YOU TO COME AND HELP ME!" Sakura screamed down the stairs.
Sasuke rushed up the stairs and nearly threw up at the sight. He slowly entered the room.
"Hold them up while I pull the nails out. I'm sorry guys, this is going to hurt."
Sakura started with Tenten pulling out the four nails that held her up. For each wound she pulled off a piece of her shirt to tie around it. By the time she was done, she didn't have a shirt. She didn't care. She grabbed Ino, Hinata, and Tenten and slowly descended down the stairs. Sasuke grabbed the boys and did the same.
"There's no enough room in just your car, so I'll take the girls in mine."
"Okay, I'll meet you there."
Sakura pulled out her keys and unlocked the door. She put the girls inside and sped to the emergency room. As soon as she got there, she grabbed the girls again and ran into the hospital.
"I NEED HELP OVER HERE!"
"Miss, calm down…OMG!"
"PLEASE GET A DOCTOR!"
"Right away, how many are there?"
"Three girls, three boys. Please hurry!"
"DOCTOR HATAKE, PLEASE HURRY TO THE FRONT OF ER. THERE ARE SIX INJURED PATIENTS IN NEED OF DIRE CARE."
Doctor Hatake (hehe, I thought I'd throw ya for a loop.) rushed to ER and was shocked to find his ex-students lying there bleeding to death.
"Kakashi? So that's what happened to you…I don't have time for this, help them!"
Six bed were brought out and were onto the IC unit. Sakura wanted to follow, but Sasuke held her back. He was trying to calm her down because she was half naked and hysterical.
"Sakura, calm down. Here, put on my shirt."
She did as she told and tried to stop crying. After she had stopped crying, Doctor Hatake, came out of the IC unit.
"I'm afraid I have some bad news. Ino is beyond saving and wants to share her last words with you Sakura. Tenten is close to being totally bled out. Neji, Hinata, Naruto, and Shikamaru are barely hanging on by a thread. I don't know how long they will live. I'm sorry."
Sakura followed the doctor to Ino, who was growing weaker by the second. As she entered the room, a new wave of tears stung her eyes.
"I-I want you to know….that you have always been like sister to me. Tell Shikamaru that I love him. I know how much you love Sasuke…hold on to him and live…live like….you….were….dying."
With her last words said, she slowly passed away.
"Ino? INO! No, please don't leave me! Why does everybody I love have to die!"
Sakura looked down at her friend's hand and saw the ring. She pulled it off and read the inscription.
I will love you always,. Through pain, tears, and blood. I won't leave when things get rough. I love you Ino. Love Shikamaru.
Sakura took the ring and made her way to Shikamaru's room. When she entered Shikamaru looked up at her.
"She…she told me to tell you that she loves you."
"Sakura, that doesn't answer my question."
"I know. Ino…Ino just…passed away."
Shikamaru looked up at her with tear-filled eyes. Hi screamed could heard throughout the halls.
"Shikamaru, I'm so sorry. It's all my fault. If you guys never met me, you would be better off."
"No Sakura. We wouldn't have been. If we had never met you, we would have never been so close, Ino and I never would have met, and Sasuke would still be trapped in his miserable little shell. I love you like a sister Sakura, don't forget that."
"I…I am dying Sakura. Here take this ring with you. Bury them with mine and Ino's body….side….by….side….forever. I…I…love…you….like…a….sister."
"Shikamaru? Please don't give up yet."
Shikamaru passed away. Sakura ran to Tenten's room, but was too late. She was already dead, but Sasuke was with her when she passed.
"Sakura, she said that she loved us and wanted us to move on from this. She wants us to be happy. She knows it's not your fault. It was…Orochimaru."
"What? I'll kill that son of a bitch!"
"What about Shikamaru and Ino?"
Sakura turned around and made her way down the hall to Hinata's room. Sasuke stayed behind to tell the police what he had learned from Tenten.
"Sakura-chan, come in."
"Are you going to die too?"
"Yes, there's nothing they can do. I lost too much blood. Tell Naruto-kun that I love him."
"No, tell him your self."
Sakura picked Hinata up and carried her to Naruto's room. She sat Hinata down by Naruto and let them talk.
"Naruto-kun, I don't have much time left."
"Neither do I. I'm sorry Hinata. I should have told you a long time ago that I love you."
"I love you too Naruto-kun."
He brought her down for their last kiss. When the broke apart, Hinata and Naruto died, together, in each other's arms.
Sakura blindly fled the room and ran down the hall. However, she was pulled into a dark room.
"Did I hit a nerve, Cherry Blossom?"
"Orochimaru." Venom dripped from her voice.
"What's the matter?"
Sakura turned around and decided to play his game.
"Nothing Orochimaru, I just missed you is all."
"Really? I could fix that."
She pulled him in for a kiss, but when he was distracted she stealthfully grabbed four of his kunai and stabbed him in the neck, but she pulled the kunai out as well. She push him against the wall and held him up by his throat.
"You killed everyone close to me, except Sasuke. Now you're going to feel the pain you have inflicted on me."
She pulled out one of the kunai and stabbed his hand to the wall with it. She repeated the same for his other hands and his feet. She looked around and saw scalpels lying on a table. She gave him an evil smile and began to cut at his chest.
"You know, I don't think that you could possibly feel all the things I felt."
With each word, she stabbed him in the abdomen.
"So I'm going to leave you here to bleed out, just like you did my friends and family."
"My…Cherry Blossom…has been….tainted with hate."
"No, I'm not yours and I'm not tainted."
"She's right Orochimaru, she's not tainted."
Sakura and Orochimaru looked at Sasuke who was bleeding because someone hacked off his left arm.
"SASUKE! WHO DID THIS!"
"You're going to die too aren't you?"
"Yes, I am…LOOK OUT!"
It was too late, the kunai found it's mark in her back. Another one followed and hit her in the side.
"If I'm going down, you're going down, Bitch."
Sakura woke up with a scream. She looked around at the white walls and sighed.
"It was all just a dream, a scary dream, but a dream no less."
"Yes that's right Sakura, it was a dream. You're still at the hospital, in the mental ward. You have been here for 11 years. You're not going to get out anytime soon. Hope you are enjoying yourself here." Stated a rather bitchy nurse.
"BITCH! FUCK YOU!"
"Now, now Sakura, you know we don't permit foul language. Besides you have a visitor."
"I'll show you."
Ino walked into the room.
"Ino-Pig, what do you want."
"I came by to give you some messages."
"Naruto says hi and he misses you. Sasuke says he still hates your guts and that you are a nasty bitch. And I cam by to tell you that Sasuke and I are together now, so you can quit fantasizing about something you will never have. Bye Psycho."
Ino left, but before she did, she watched Sakura cry.
"I HATE THIS PLACE, I WANT OUT NOW!"
"Sakura, you have to wake up…wake up."
"Sasuke? Is that you?"
"Please wake up…"
"I am awake."
"Please wake up."
Sakura's eyes opened, everything was hazy and she heard an annoying beeping sound.
"Sasuke I am awake…I'm awake."
"Sakura? You're awake thank god."
"Sakura, you have been in a coma for three days since Orochimaru attacked you again. You killed him, but he pulled a couple of kunai on you."
Sakura sat straight up and blinked back her tears. They were all alive. Nobody died, she wasn't in a mental ward, and Ino and Sasuke weren't together. (Okay, she dreamed everyone died and then woke up from that dream, dreaming she was in a mental ward. Now, she's woke up again and nothing's changed, except Orochimaru is dead.)
"You're not dead. Is everybody else okay?"
"Of course I'm not dead. Everybody else is fine, they should be by later."
"Why wait till later, were here now. Sakura, I'm so glad you're awake."
"Thanks Tenten. How are all of you?"
"We're fine, but we do have some bad news. You're Aunt can't come to visit you, she had to stay over in China for a few more months."
"Hey, whose everybody talking to…Sakura? You're finally awake."
"Sasuke…I dreamed that you were going to die. I dreamed everyone died."
Sasuke walked over to her and she put her head in the crook of his arm and sobbed.
"It's okay Sakura, he's dead now. You'll never have to hurt again. I have to go get the nurse, so she can release you. They've been waiting for you to wake up so you could come home with me. I'm so glad you woke up."
6 Months Later:
"Sasuke! I'm home."
"Hello, my cherry blossom."
"What are you doing in there?"
"Sakura I need to ask you a question."
Sasuke got down on one knee and produced a tiny box. Sakura looked dumbfounded.
"Sakura, this is a promise ring. I have loved you for a long time now. I want to ask if you will marry me. I know we can't right now, we are both still in school and stuff, but one day I want to marry you."
Sakura was crying and she threw herself at him, knocking him over, and planted a kiss on him.
"Oh, Sasuke you know I love you. I will marry you one day."
Sasuke opened the box, and pulled out the ring. She examined the ring, which had an emerald in the middle and two rose engraved on the silver band. She read the inscription.
Forever Yours, Love Sasuke
So Sakura's life changed from light to darkness and back to light. She was happy with Sasuke and they loved each other. The group had been inseparable for a long time. They were all in love, be it friendship or other. They all cared for each other and made a promise never to forget what brought hem together.
