Chapter 13: Oh what a day!

Sakura was walking down a lone road. The town was deserted. The sky was a dark grey and green. Storm clouds were brewing, spewing lightning and the sound of thunder rolled through the town. The wind was fierce and threatened to push Sakura over. Fear bubbled inside her. What kind of place was this, she wondered. Then there was a figure at the end of the road. It walked towards Sakura slowly, but confidently. The figure stopped just before Sakura could see his face. Then there was a hand on Sakura's shoulder, she screamed and turned around. It was Sasuke. He pointed behind Sakura will a look of fear. It was strange to see Sasuke scared. Sakura turned around and the figure was there again. But she could see his face. It was Sai, holding a gun. There was a bang and he shot Sasuke between the eyes and laughed.

Sakura sat up abruptly and screamed. What had just happened? Suddenly she remembered where she was and began to take deep breaths to calm herself down.

"It was just a dream.." she muttered to herself. Sakura put her right hand on her chest, just over her heart. It was beating very fast. She sat there for a while, just waiting for it to slow down. Then suddenly her door flung open and was thrown off the hinges to land on the floor with a big thud. Sakura let a small gasp escape her, and immediately her beat began to beat furiously again.

"Sakura, are you okay? What's wrong?" exclaimed Sasuke as his eyes darted around the room, searching for the cause of Sakura's panicked scream of terror. He then found that there was no immediate danger and surveyed Sakura. She was fine, just a little shaken up.

"What is wrong with you?" exploded Sakura. "Was that completely necessary?" she continued with shock plastered on her face.

"No, I suppose not" replied Sasuke. He stood tall and his expression changed from worried to lazy. "My mistake" he spoke as he turned around and left. He had broken Sakura's door. She merely stared at it in shock. What was she going to do with a broken door? She now had no privacy.

"Just great" she mumbled. She figured that there would be no use in crying over spilt milk so she went to investigate the damage. Sakura took one glance at the door and the frame in which it was ripped off of. She had no idea what she was looking at, or how to even begin fixing it.

"Bit rough this morning were we?" asked that familiar friendly voice. Sakura looked up and pouted. "Aw, what's wrong. How did this break?" he asked as he squatted and grabbed Sakura's chin. She began to blush.

"S-Sasuke" she whispered. Itachi nodded with a grin. Of course it was Sasuke, he thought.

"That boy is trouble isn't he" said Itachi. Sakura didn't answer because it was a rhetiorical question. Itachi then kissed Sakura on the cheek and spoke again "I'll get this fixed up for you. I suppose you wouldn't want an audience while you change" he said, winking at Sakura. Then he stood up and walked away, he then stopped and said "Oh, I'm going to go out for a while. I just have a couple of errand to run. Be back this afternoon beautiful." Sakura blinked a couple times and blushed. This was becoming an odd morning for her. She touched her cheek, where Itachi kissed her. She sighed happily.

When Sakura went downstairs she noticed that the house was a mess. Ever since she wasn't the maid, there house was steadily getting dirtier and dirtier. The kitchen had cups and plates everywhere. Pots and pans too. It was like somebody tried to cook, but didn't know how and just gave up. Sakura shook her head. She walked towards the counter and was just about to start cleaning when Sasuke walked in.

"Don't clean anything. You're not a maid Sakura" he said firmly. Sakura poked her tongue at him.

"I can do whatever I want!" she exclaimed. Sasuke was a little taken back, he didn't expect this kind of childish behavior from Sakura. She then picked up a pot and pretended to clean it. "Look, I'm cleaning! What are you going to do about it?" she said mocking Sasuke. Then there was a thud and Sakura screamed in pain, she had dropped the pot onto her foot. "It hurts, it hurts!" yelled Sakura and she jumped around the kitchen on one foot as she clutched her other. Sasuke laughed.

"You are so silly" he said with an incredulous smile. He then when to the small freezer and grabbed a bag of frozen peas. He sauntered over to Sakura, grabbed her hand and walked her to the lounge room and sat her down on the couch. She looked away in embarrassment. Sasuke knelt in front of her and placed the bag of peas on her swelling foot.

"You're such a mess" he sighed. Sakura looked at him and tapped him on the head. "Ouch" he said in disbelief as he stared into Sakura's eyes.

"You're a mess! You broke my door" she spoke confidently. Sasuke smiled again.

"Yes, I suppose I did. Sorry" he said. Sakura widened her eyes, it was a genuine apology. She looked at her hands and smiled.

"You know Sasuke, you're actually not as bad as I thought you were.. You're a nice guy but, why are you so cruel sometimes?" said Sakura quietly. Sasuke stared at Sakura. She couldn't read him, she had no idea what he was thinking. He stood as he spoke.

"Just keep that on your foot" then he walked away. Sakura just watched as he left. She was so confused. What had she done wrong? Why was he like this? She shook her head. Sakura only wanted to understand him. A while later Sakura could hear the door open and close. Sasuke left the house. Sakura was home alone. She sighed and decided she would just retreat to her room.

She walked in her room and flopped onto her bed. She heard something shift behind her and she turned over immediately. She saw who it was and screamed in terror.

"Hello Sakura, I've missed you"
