Authoress Note: This is just a filler!! I'm sorry, but my computer died…it should be fixed in about a week, so I'll get everything back, and writing more. Since I'm in the eighth grade, I'm killing myself, trying to get honors this year. (And I think I did!) I'm also helping out every chance I get to raise money for my graduation, which also takes up some free time. Well, I just wanna say that I'm sorry for keeping you, and here it is Chapter 5!!


Haruno Sakura walked away from the couple with a very sour attitude.

"I'm surprised that you let her win so easily." Karin commented.

Tsunade found it only fit that if Sasuke was allowed into the village with a new start, then so was his team. Since then, Sakura and Karin had become the best of friends.

"Oh, Yamanaka Ino has not won." Sakura glared and kept on walking, Karin next to her.

"Well, then you better speed up. She'll win Sasuke over by the end of the week." Karin smirked at the way Sakura fumed.

"I'll destroy that girl, if it's the last thing I do." Sakura growled and continued out of the mall. Karin let the pinkette walk alone. Sakura was mad after all.

"And let the games begin." Karin smirked.


"Why would he even like her?!" Sakura shrieked for the umpteenth time.

"Let's face it." Karin said bluntly. "Yamanaka Ino is everything we are not."

Sakura glared at the red head.

"It's true." Karin defended.

"Well, then, we'll just have to change that." An evil grin spread on Sakura's face.

"Oh that sounds so easy!" Karin said, her voice dripping with sarcasm. "What do you propose we do?"

"I don't know." Sakura shot back. "Die her hair red, paint her skin blue, I don't know and I don't care. I just have to ruin her!"

"Please, getting rid of her would be easier." Karin muttered and a wicked grin spread on Sakura's face.

"And that just what I'll do."


Ino closed the door behind her and watched from the window as Sasuke turned the corner. He had been gentlemen enough to walk her home after Meilin and Shikamaru had ditched them at the mall.

Ino sighed and walked into her room, pulling her shirt over her head and throwing it on a near by chair. The Yamanaka let out a yawn as she rummaged through her clothes, grabbing her night gown and pulling it on, unclasping her bra and pulling off her jeans after.

'Tomorrow morning, Mei is so dead' Ino thought before drifting off to sleep.


"Don't die."

The blonde girl shot up in bed, sweat running down her forehead.

"Oh god." Ino murmured. "Now that was scary."

She looked at the clock beside her that read 5.45 am.

Ino groaned. "Who would possibly be up at 6 in the morning? On a Saturday?!"

Despite the time, the Yamanaka got up from bed at got dressed. In her usual outfit, she walked out the door, towards the bare streets. Ino sighed.

If she hated anything more than over time at the flower shop it was being alone.

"Nobody is up at this hour." Ino whined as she walked down the streets.

"I guess, I'm nobody." She heard the same voice from last night say and she spun around, smiling.

"Sasuke!" Ino grinned. "Why are you up so early?"

The Uchiha shrugged. "I go for walks, training, running, it's nicer when there aren't so many girls following you."

"Well, can I follow you? No one else seems to be up."

"It's alright with me. Why are you up anyways?" He asked as both of them began to walk.

"I had the weirdest dream." Ino bit her lip. "That's a lie. It was a nightmare."

"What happened?"

"I saw my mother at the hospital, and my Dad dying, and…" She trailed off.


"And you." She murmured and looked at him.

"Me?" He repeated.

"You were…training." She began. "And Orochimaru, he just…." Ino trailed off again, and Sasuke already knew what happened.

"Ino, Orochimaru is dead."

"I know, but why would I even dream about that? I've never had a dream like that."

"People say that dreams foreshadow things sometimes." Sasuke said and Ino's eyes widened.


The raven haired man chuckled. "Not in the sense that I'm going to die. In the sense that something bad may happen soon."

"I really hope not." Ino murmured.


"You want to explain to me why were going to Konoha?" Kisame asked his partner.

"I need to borrow something from my brother." Itachi answered emotionlessly, the blonde girl flashing before his eyes.
