The Uchiha Secret
Sakura glanced back and forth between the two intimate items, unsure of which one to choose for the important occasion. On one hand, she could go with the red-laced bra, and on the other hand she could go with the black. In complete honesty, Sakura had no idea what to do, that was why she had brought Ino along. While Sakura had kept herself busy with training and hospital duties, Ino had gone on many dates. While Sakura had saved herself for Uchiha Sasuke, Ino had moved on with Nara Shikamaru.
Ino sighed loudly, "Sakura, this isn't the Jounin exams, just pick one already!"
Sakura blushed a light crimson, "How do I know which one Sasuke-kun will like more?"
The blond rolled her eyes, "Honestly, he probably won't even notice it before he rips it off."
"Ino, come on-this is very important to me." Sakura folded her arms in front of her nervously, "I just want things to be perfect."
Her best friend gave another sigh, "Fine. You'd look killer in either one, so what's the problem?"
Sakura's face flushed darker, "Well, Sasuke always sees me in red, as it is the Haruno clan's chosen color, so what if he doesn't pay attention to the whole meaning of me wearing it for him?"
Ino nodded, "And what is wrong with the black bra?"
Sakura averted her eyes, "I don't want Sasuke-kun to get this idea that I'm into…Weird kinky things…"
Ino chuckled, "Having hormones is normal Ms. Medic Ninja."
Sakura's cheeks inflated, "Oh forget it! Why did I ask you to come with me anyways?" Sakura then grabbed the two garments and moved to exit the dressing rooms. "This was just a stupid idea."
"Sakura, wait!" Ino paused between giggles, "I'm sorry. Go with the black bra, it will help bring out your hair."
Sakura raised her eyebrow, "Really?"
Ino grinned, "Trust me."
Once they had made the purchase (complete with matching underwear), Sakura was starting to feel a little more confident about the whole plan, and situation she was putting herself into. She was going to go train with Sasuke, and once they were finished she was going to offer to him a home cooked meal. Once he accepted from there, and after dinner, she was going to, for lack there of a better word, seduce him.
Sakura couldn't help but grin. Since her childhood years she had been in love with Sasuke. And years after knowing and chasing him, she felt she had finally made progress in their relationship; enough progress to take it to the next level even. And today was the perfect day for their relationship to move on to the next level. It was their anniversary, and a beautiful spring day. The sun was shinning and the air was neither hot, nor cold.
Once she parted from Ino, Sakura hurried home to her apartment and changed, to get ready for her training with Sasuke; making sure to wear the matching intimates she purchased a few hours before, underneath her battle gear.
After looking herself over once more in the mirror. She then hurried out of her apartment, not wanting to be late. Of course, when she reached the bridge from their genin days, Sasuke was already there, arms crossed as he leaned over the railing.
"Sorry to make you wait Sasuke-kun," Sakura smiled sweetly at him.
"Hn." He responded, pushing himself off the railing of the bridge.
It was then that Sakura noticed that he was in his Jounin uniform, complete with the Uchiha clan symbol on his green vest. "Eh? Sasuke-kun, how come you are in uniform?"
Sasuke averted his eyes, "I have to take over teaching Neji's team today-he got called away on an Anbu mission."
Sakura's smile threatened to fall, "Oh. Well, that's okay." She cringed a little bit on the inside, while Inner Sakura pledged to beat Neji into a pulp when he got back. "We'll just train later."
"There is no need for you to wait for me, I already asked Naruto to help you."
"He was busy with his own team though."
Sakura nearly sighed in relief. As much as she loved Naruto like a brother, she had really wanted to train mostly as an opportunity to hang around Sasuke without the other members of team seven.
"So then Sai suggested that he take my place."
This time, Sakura's mouth did drop: "He did what?"
"I volunteered Ugly," interrupted Sai as he made his way to join his teammates on the bridge. "I explained to the Uchiha here that I thought you were a little rusty anyways-what with all the time you spend in the hospital." His lips turned upwards into a smile.
"Rusty? Oh he was most definitely going to pay in bruises for that comment," Sakura mentally noted.
"Okay then, I'll see you two later then." Said Sasuke as he began to take his exit.
Sai just continued to smile, "Come on Ugly, you need all the time you can get in."
Sakura's eyebrow twitched in annoyance, "Lead the way, practice dummy."
She followed him to the Southeast forest, and from there, the battle began. She hadn't even allowed him to say one word once they reached the normal clearing that their team trained in.
"You're being too rash," he told her as he avoided her attack, causing her to slam her fist into the earth.
"Of course I am being rash!" She hollered at him, "You ruined my date with Sasuke-kun!" She kicked her leg in his direction in an attempt to hit him in the gut.
In a matter of seconds he had pulled out his paintbrush and scrolls, and before Sakura knew what was happening, she was bound by his ink jutsu.
"Sai!" Sakura screamed at him. "When I get out of this I am going to kill you!"
He smirked at her challenge, "Interesting…How about we make a little bet on that?"
Although Sakura was Tsunade's apprentice, one thing she had never learned from her was how to gamble. Which probably was just as well, considering she was known for being a loser when it came to such games. Sakura considered her options and perks carefully. And then after reaching the conclusion that she could probably knock Sai out with one punch of her awesome strength, she nearly accepted the proposal.
"What are stakes?" Sakura asked, knowing that before she accept anything, the prize must be worth it.
Sai tilted his head in thought, "Hm…If you win, I'll quit calling you ugly."
"And any other words or names that are related to the word." She interrupted.
Sai rolled his eyes, "Fine." He then gave a fake smile, "And if I win, you have to be my slave for a month."
Sakura raised her eyebrows in disbelief, "A slave? You couldn't be any more creative?"
Sai shrugged in response, "A slave has many purposes."
This time Sakura rolled her eyes, "Whatever." She then broke out of his ink jutsu and entered her fighting stance. "Let's just get this over with."
Two hours and fifteen minutes later, Haruno Sakura concluded that she was in fact, Tsunade's true apprentice, and where she had inherited her monstrous strength and medic skills; she had also inherited her bad luck at gambling.
When had she come to this deduction?
Right about the time when Sai had surprised attacked her, jumping from a tree branch, before descending upon and tackling her to the ground, he had sliced kunai across her chest.
She laid pinned beneath him, her chest heaving up and down, as she tried to catch her breath. As a medic, she had already begun to take note of all her wounds. A possible broken rib, a fractured wrist, and small stab wounds to both the left shoulder blade and her leg.
Once she had completed the task in her head, she realized that Sai still straddled her hips. Glancing up at him she noticed his dark abyss eyes were staring down at her, lacking all emotions and amusement.
She was expecting him to be smiling and announcing his victory. But there he sat, staring hard at her.
"What is it?"
His eyes still didn't meet hers, and it was at the moment when she realized that he wasn't staring at her, but at something else. She followed his gaze and gasped as she realized that his kunai had torn and ripped through her shirt and brand new bra, leaving a good amount of her breast to be visibly exposed.
She shrieked in horror and while her left arm flew across her chest in an attempt to keep him from seeing anything more, her right fist connected with his face, and throwing him off of her. She sat up and screamed again, "Y-You pervert!"
Sai rubbed his bruising cheek, "It was an accident."
"Honestly, I didn't know I had-"
Sakura began to cry, "I had just bought this for Sasuke-kun…"
Sai froze and his eyebrow arched, "Why would he need a bra?"
Sakura then blushed, realizing she had confessed her intentions and desires regarding Sasuke, to her male teammate.
It was probably from both her silence and her colored cheeks that finally forced Sai to catch on to the meaning of her words.
"Oh," he replied softly when the realization had hit him.
The air around them had suddenly changed, and Sakura found herself no longer comfortable with the direction in which the conversation was going. And she sure as hell was not comfortable with the physical situation.
"I can't walk through the village like this…"
Sai's face flushed lightly and he began to unzip his shirt.
Sakura's immediate reaction was to punch him in the face again; "You pervert!"
Sai jumped up, his hand on his other now bruising cheek, "I was trying to give you my shirt!"
"Oh." Sakura then focused her attention to the ground. Sai then fully unzipped his shirt and handed it to Sakura. She took it in one hand, while the other continued to cover her skin, "Thank you."
Sai had his head turned, "You're welcome Ugly."
Sakura snapped her head up, about to yell at him when she noticed that he was naked from his neck, down to his waist. Her faced flushed up like crazy, as her eyes lingered over his abs and chest. Inwardly she was cursing herself. As a medic, she had seen countless of topless men. Including all the team members of team seven. So why a little bare flesh was making her blush right now, she didn't know.
"What are you two doing?" Sasuke's voice rang in Sakura's ears, the question had sounded more like an accusation.
She glanced in the direction of the voice, and saw him standing a few feet away. She blinked a few times, "Sasuke-kun! What are you doing here?"
Sasuke walked up to them, his hands in his pockets, "I got done teaching early, so I decided to come and see how you were doing." He threw a questioning glance at Sai, "Did I interrupt something?"
Sai closed his eyes, smiled smugly, and shrugged his shoulders, "Maybe." This time Sasuke glared at Sai, as if in a warning. "But really you just missed Ugly here loosing a bet to me."
Sasuke's eyes traveled over to Sakura's body, noticing her arm across her chest, in an attempt to hold her shredded shirt up, while her other hand held Sai's shirt.
"Sai sliced through my clothes while we were sparing." Sakura tried to explain, while avoiding Sasuke's eyes.
"Interesting." Sasuke's attention was then turned back at Sai, who remained impassive. Sasuke then unzipped his Jounin jacket, and shrugged it off his arms. He handed it to Sakura, who stared at him with a puzzled expression. "Wear that," he commanded while taking Sai's shirt from her grasp. He then tossed it to his look-a-like. "Wouldn't want you to get mauled by the fan girls."
Sai caught the dark shirt expertly, and threw it over his shoulders. He narrowed his eyes, "I really didn't want Ugly here to wear it anyways." Sai started to walk away from them when he stopped suddenly, "Oh and Ugly?"
Sakura gave a questioning look, "Yes?"
"Black looks good," He gave his general fake smile, "But green would look better." With that he retreated back towards the village.
At first Sakura thought he was merely commenting on his shirt vs. Sasuke's vest. But realizing that she hadn't put on either of the shirts yet, she became conscious of the fact that he was talking about her newly destroyed bra.
She blushed for the billionth time that day, "I'm going to kick your emotionless ass Sai!" She hollered while shaking her fist to his retreating back.
Sasuke coughed, his cheeks stained pink, "Uh…Sakura?"
Sakura turned to Sasuke, "Yes, Sasuke-kun?"
He coughed again, averted his eyes and pointed to her chest. "Ahem."
Sakura found herself shrieking and blushing once more as she hurriedly tried to put on the Jounin vest as fast as she could. When Sakura was finally fully covered again Sasuke recommended that she heal her wounds, even though they weren't entirely serious. After she had finished healing herself, she offered to make Sasuke dinner, as a 'thank you' for lending her his vest.
"You don't have to." He replied while they walked home.
Sakura nodded, "I know, but I want to."
Sasuke closed his eyes, "Do what you want then."
Inner Sakura cheered, finally, things were back on track! When they reached the Uchiha estate, Sasuke showed Sakura to the kitchen, and where everything that she needed was.
Dinner was pretty much silent. After Sasuke had taken a few bites from the meal she had prepared, she had asked if the recipe was to his liking, he replied with the usual: "Hn."
That had been pretty much the entire conversation. After they had both finished the meal, Sakura moved to collect the plates.
"There is no need to do the dishes."
Sakura waved it off, "It's no big deal."
"Really, there is no need." He then stood from the table and took the plates from her. Placing them in the sink, he walked to her side; "I should walk you home."
"This is it." Thought Sakura as she breathed in and exhaled. "It's now or never." Sakura reached out and grabbed hold of Sasuke's shirt. "Sasuke-kun…Spending time with you today…" She looked up at him and into his eyes, "It was very important to me." Sakura then placed both her hands against his chest.
He remained silent.
Without warning Sakura stood on her tiptoes and placed her lips against his, and for once in his life, Uchiha Sasuke responded with something more than a "Hn."
His hand came up to cup the side of her face, as he pushed his lips against hers forcefully. When they pulled apart, they stared at each other before crashing their lips together once more. As Sasuke's arms wrapped around her waist, she threw hers around his neck, each trying to pull the other closer.
The kiss deepened when Sasuke's tongue licked across her bottom lip, pleading for entrance into her mouth. Inner Sakura gave a squee in happiness, and Sakura opened her mouth to comply with his wishes.
And Uchiha Sasuke kissed like perfectionist he was-pouring everything he had into the one action. He pulled one arm away from her waist, and his hand trailed up the space between them until it held the zipper of his vest. He pulled away, looking into her eyes, silently asking if it was okay.
And Sakura smiled in response at him.
He tugged the zipper roughly, in one swift motion, and before Sakura knew it the Jounin vest was open, leaving her exposed-thanks to Sai and his kunai…
Sasuke then began to kiss her neck, giving Sakura the goosebumps, and at the same time, making her hot. She fisted her fingers in his hair and tugged on the strands while her backed her against the wall, continuing to ravish her neck.
"Oh Sasuke-kun…" Sakura moaned, this only seemed to entice Sasuke further, as his next action was to nibble and suck on the tender flesh of her neck. "I'm glad this is happening on our anniversary." She mumbled softly.
This caused Sasuke to stop his attacks against her sensitive spot. "Our anniversary of what?" He asked, a look of confusion washing over his face.
Sakura smiled, "Of the first day we met."
Sasuke stared at her for a minute, "We met in fall, when the academy started."
"No silly," Sakura shook her head, "we met in spring." Sasuke still looked confused. "When those girls were harassing me."
Sasuke shook his head.
"B-But," Sakura stammered, "You protected me from their bullying. And when I went to thank you, that old man came up and scolded you for wandering off."
"Sakura, I spent all of spring and summer practicing my shuriken and kunai throwing on the Uchiha compound. I remember because I was trying to catch up to my brother." He was staring at her seriously now.
Sakura was known for her brilliant mind, perfect chakra control, and for her skills as a medic. So it made no sense to her why she got there first meeting wrong. But Sasuke seemed so damn sure too…
"It wasn't me."
Without thinking Sakura pushed Sasuke from her: "How dare you accuse me of falling in love with someone else!" She shoved passed him and headed for the door.
"Accuse?" Sasuke was taken aback. "Sakura-wait!" He called after her, "I didn't accuse you!"
She slammed the door in his face.
Sasuke ran a hand through his jet black hair, "Annoying." He muttered to himself.
