Confessions of an Uchiha
Confession 1: Call Me
He was always staring at her whenever he gets the chance. He had always liked her from the start, from the first contact they ever made, to the first small talk they had. He was attracted to her, like a bee is to a flower, like a moth is to a fire, and like Naruto is to ramen.
"So, like I was saying-" she walked pass him along with her friends.
She didn't see him. He wasn't too popular, due to his anti-social behavior. Unlike her, who had majority of the boys in school following her around. But he wasn't like that. He still kept his cool, he still remained calm, and he seemed to not even have a crush on her. Which Naruto knew was a lie.
Haruno Sakura was a drug to Uchiha Sasuke, and yet, he still hasn't even had a taste of her, but he was already addicted to her, or rather…
In love with her…
He continued staring after her, wondering why she never even said 'hi' to him, even after meeting or bumping into each other numerous times, even after saving her from a group of guys once, him paying the price with multiple cuts. Some of their meetings were accidental, and some were intentional. Yet he remained quiet about his feelings. "Sasuke is gay."
"That caught his attention…" Naruto thought, grinning. "So, staring at her again?"
"No duh." He scoffed, shoving his hands into his pants' pockets and walking away. "Chill dude, school's over, and I have to rush home," Sasuke didn't seem to listen, but he was wondering why the idiot's telling him this useless information. "…so I decided to help you out!"
"Help me out..?" he repeated Naruto's words, stopping and looking at his best friend with a raised brow.
"Yup!" Naruto nodded and grinned again. "Since I already have a girlfriend, I might as well lend you a hand to getting your Sakura!"
"She's not mine idiot, she's not even an object."
"Whatever," Naruto muttered, waving his hand dismissively as he shoved a piece of paper in Sasuke's hand. "Call me later for some tips, or if you just want to talk when you finally let your emotions out of your emo box!" and he ran off, leaving Sasuke to glare after him. "Emo box my ass…" and he walked away, heading to his home.
His mother wondered why he was silent the whole time during dinner. Sure that wasn't anything unusual, but he would always respond whenever she said or asked something. "Sasuke..?" the boy blinked and looked up at his mother. "What's wrong?" she asked, her voice coated with worry. "It's nothing." He answered, finishing his food and excusing himself from dinner, afterwards, headed up to his room.
"Itachi..?" she turned to the older Uchiha who shrugged and continued to sip his tea. "We may be close, but not that close."
"Damn! I can't take anymore of this!" he thought, placing his hands on his head as he let himself fall on his bed, lying on his back as he shut his eyes and tried to get rid of Sakura in his head. "Stop annoying the hell out of me Haruno!" he thought, not succeeding in shoving the images of his crush away. "Damn!" he thought, sitting up and grabbing the wireless phone in his room as he approached his desk and picked the piece of paper that Naruto handed to him.
"Let's see…" he dialed the number that was written on the sheet and listened to the ringing of the phone on the other line, waiting for someone to pick it up. He walked around his room, then leaned against a wall, ready to hang up until he heard the ringing cease and someone answer it. "Dobe! What took you so long to pick the phone up?!" he instantly said, not giving the other a chance to speak, so he continued. "I bet you're talking to Hinata again! And you told me to call you?! Geez, okay, so your so-called emo box theory about me is true, because right now, I just have to let this all out!" he yelled.
"Shut it Naruto! I'm serious! I can't stop thinking about her! She's annoying me in my mind with all her smiles, giggles and-and- crap! Even her pink hair is annoying me! I can't stop thinking about how soft her hair is!"
"Not to mention, I can't believe that I'm going to say this but, I think I love her! It's not just a mere crush anymore! I get jealous when I see her with another guy! I get worked up when she's sad and I even had dreams of kissing her under the moonlight! Am I sounding too cheesy?! That's not a good sign for guys!"
"Geez! How slow can you get Naruto?! I love her, I love Haruno Sakura! I can't deny it any longer! I just can't!"
He froze. Did he just confess?
"This isn't Naruto, huh?"
Sasuke paled. "S-Sakura..?"
"…Mm. Hi Sasuke."
"You knew it was me?"
"Well, yeah." She blushed as she found out that she said yes. How was she going to explain this? "Might as well go for it now." She sighed.
"Sorry, I… I… well… you see…"
A giggle escaped her lips. "Ne, you sound cute when you stutter Sasuke."
"Crap…" he murmured, but she heard it and continued laughing. Her laughter echoed in his ears, and he found the sound so alluring. "So…" he trailed off.
"I'm listening…" she grinned, she could imagine him blushing.
"You already heard me…"
"I wanna hear it again, Sa-su-ke!" she giggled. "Say it again for me?"
"A-Aa…" he didn't know why, but he actually smiled at her behavior. It was cute. "I'm in love with you."
"Mm-hm. So I've heard." She teased.
"Sorry about… bursting just like that."
"Don't worry about it." She responded. "I mean, it turned out okay."
"You never called me that before…" he said in a softer voice. Sakura turned redder. "W-well…" her voice had also gone softer. "You see… I…"
"You what..?" he smirked. It was payback time. "I'm waiting."
"Don't make this harder for me…"
"Well, I…" she took a deep breathe-in. "I love you too…"
"Since when?" by this time, he had already moved to his room's balcony, and was leaning against the wide railing of it, one arm resting on top of the flat surface as the night wind blew against his face. He stared ahead, listening to her talk. "Well, no one has ever saved me before, not to mention, take on those many attacks and still standing, I'd have to say, you look really cool that way." She blushed and she could tell he was smirking on the other line. "If you're smirking, stop it."
"And what if I'm not?"
"Mou, Sasuke-kun, you're mean."
"And you must be pouting right now…"
"Am not!" she lied.
"Uh-huh…" a smile made its way to his lips, unaware that she too, was smiling. "So, are you… free tomorrow?"
"If you mean after school, yes, why?" she grinned, knowing what was to come next. "You wanna hang out tomorrow?" he asked. "You mean, like a date?" she giggled when he didn't answer soon. "Yeah, you can say that."
"Sure, but don't you have soccer practice?"
"Nah, I can skip it for you." He said. She laughed at this. "How sweet…" she teased. "But I don't want you to get kicked out of the team."
"Well, if the coach does that, they won't have a chance to win the next game." He smirked when she giggled again. "You're so full of yourself!" she said. "But then, I've seen you play, and you really are good." Her voice turned softer at this. "Hn, I could teach you if you want, I heard you love the sport." Although he couldn't see it, she gave a nod. "Mm, I do. My father was a soccer player before." Sasuke laughed, earning a questioning look from Sakura. "Then I wouldn't have a hard time courting you or getting your family, mainly your father, to accept me."
She laughed as well. "Oh don't worry, mom's seen your picture and she approves, not to mention, dad has seen you play when I let him watch the video of you and the team I taped!"
"Hold on a sec, you have a picture and a video of me..?"
Sakura froze and paled, she just blurted out her secret, the only secret her friends, including Ino, never knew. "U-Um… d-did I say that..?" she gave a nervous laugh. "Hn, stalker." He joked. "I-I wasn't stalking you!" she protested. "Right, so, you have a picture of me…" he said. "Yeah… the one wherein you're in your soccer uniform…" Sasuek raised a brow. "How'd..?"
"Your best friend gave me a copy when I begged him for one."
"Yeah, he said you'd kill him if I gave you one, so I blackmailed, bribed and even offered hooking him up with Hinata."
"So that's why he got the guts to talk to Hinata."
"Yeah, I was really fascinated with his loyalty to you, although it went down the drain when he agreed after I mentioned Hinata." She laughed. "Talk about love winning against friendship."
"Hn, I'd probably done the same thing if Hinata was in your place."
"Aww… you love me that much?"
"Yeah, to a point that I don't stalk you!"
"I was not stalking!"
Silence followed, and then they both laughed. "Well, I gotta go; my dad's eyeing me." She said with a sheepish tone. "In that case, you'd better go. I wouldn't want to get you into trouble, nor do I want to get to your dad's bad side." She laughed, yet again. "Yeah, that would be bad. Good night then," she whispered. "Aa, good night Sakura."
"I'm glad you dialed the wrong number."
He stared at the phone, hearing the dial tone on the other line as he smiled and placed the phone back, then lay down on his bed and closed his eyes, a smile on his lips. "I'm glad too, Sakura…"
His senses tingled, and he knew when it meant danger. School has ended, and he had been avoiding his best friend for the whole day, knowing that he's gonna get it from him. "UZUMAKI NARUTO!!" too late, he was just spotted by Sasuke. Naruto turned behind him, laughing nervously upon seeing Sasuke fast approaching him, the look in his eyes scared him. "I didn't mean it! I was only helping! And… and..! Don't hurt me!" eh raised both hands up in defense and shut his eyes.
"Thanks a lot Naruto!"
"Huh?" he blinked, staring at his best friend who was shaking his hand and smiling. "Wha..?"
"Thanks!" he said again and turned around when he heard Sakura calling him. "Well, gotta go dobe, catch 'ya later." And he left with a wave, sprinting towards Sakura. Naruto stared after them, blinking, trying to register what just happened. Then he saw Sakura kiss Sasuke on the cheek, and his best friend intertwining his hand in hers. He smiled. "Oh, they're together now." He grinned. "No problem teme!"
A/N: Pretty short ne? But hey, this is just the beginning of the many possible ways of an Uchiha's confessions! Note that this not only revolves around love, but maybe even more. You know, like secrets, thoughts… etc. I'll update again when I come up with something!
