Chapter 13

"Haruno Sakura, what is the meaning of this?!"

"Wh-what do you mean Da-daddy?"

"Don't act all innocent! I heard from one of the villagers that you were making out with Sasuke in public like some harlot!"


"How could you do something as irresponsible as that?! Do you have no respect for our family's name at all?!"

"I-I-I'm s-sorry."

"Sorry? Sorry isn't good enough! You've disgraced our name! I thought I raised you better than that but apparently I was wrong!"

Sasuke's face contorted in anger when he saw tears pouring down his angel's face. Without a word, he took the cell phone from Sakura, ignoring the shocked look on her face, and spoke into the phone, "Haruno-san, this is Sasuke. I understand that you are upset with Sakura but she was not the only one to blame. She is my girlfriend and I love her very much. I won't stand for you treating her like this but since you are her father I will let you off with a warning. If you ever make Sakura unhappy again, I will make sure that you will never be able to preach anywhere again."

Sasuke closed the phone without waiting for a response. He put the phone back into her purse before gathering Sakura up in his arms.

"It's ok, there's no need to cry," Sasuke whispered.

"M-my daddy h-hates me though!" Sakura sobbed.

"He doesn't hate you, he's just upset. He'll get over it and everything will return to normal."


Sasuke's heart clenched when she looked up at him with a tear streaked face. Her eyes looked so hopeful and Sasuke smiled gently as he wiped her tears away.

"Really." He whispered before he softly kissed her.

Sakura sailed into her apartment and closed the door, a goofy smile on her face.

'Sasuke-kun, I love you so much!'

She squealed before she picked up her phone and dialed Ino's number.

"Hello?" The blonde answered

"Ino, I'm so in love! I love Sasuke-kun so much!"

Ino laughed at Sakura's excitement, "I'm so glad that you're so happy."

"I've never been this happy before."

"That's what love will do to ya."

"Did you hear?"

"Hear what?"

"About Sasuke-kun and I making out in public last night, surely you the gossip queen has heard about it."


"It's true..."

"Yeah it is and yeah I heard about you and Sasuke. Some people made it sound like you had sex in public but I knew they were exaggerating. Don't worry about it, a lot of couples do PDA."

"It was pretty hot and heavy. We ended up going back to his place and making love."

"You had sex!" Ino squealed.

The pink haired girl pulled the phone away from her and rubbed her ringing ear before replying to her loud friend.

"Ow Ino, there was no need to be so loud."

"Yes there is! You're not a virgin anymore, this is a huge deal!"

"There's more."

"What do you mean "there's more"?"

"My dad called this morning."

"Uh oh…"

"Uh oh is right. He was not happy at all when he heard about Sasuke-kun's and my PDA and he was yelling at me and I was crying but then Sasuke-kun took the phone from me and…. Well he pretty much threatened my dad to leave me alone but it was still sweet."

"He threatened your dad? How is that sweet?"

"He defended me and told him if he ever made him sad again that he'd make sure my dad never preached anywhere again."

"That's oddly sweet I suppose," Ino stated hesitantly.

"I know and then he comforted me. Sasuke-kun is so sweet and I love him so much."

"We should double date."

"Yeah, that'll be fun!"

"Ok, how about tomorrow night?"

"That works. I'll come over tomorrow at five and we can get ready together."

"Ok, I'll see you then."

"Ok, bye."


Sakura ended the call and dialed Sasuke's number to tell him about the double date.


"Hey Sasuke-kun."

"What's up Angel?"

"I was talking to Ino and we both thought it would be fun to go on a double date."

"Ok, when?"

"Tomorrow night."


"Ino's coming over at five tomorrow so you guys can pick us up at seven."

"Alright, see you then."

"See ya. I love you."

"I love you too."

As soon as Sasuke hung up the phone, the smile was wiped from his face.

'Shit, a double date? Being around Shikamaru is ok but hanging around Ino for God knows how long, I hope I can restrain myself from committing suicide.'

While the Uchiha went to the kitchen to grab a tomato, he attempted to convince himself that being around Ino for an unknown period of time wouldn't be such a bad thing.

'She can be nice and she is Sakura's best friend so she can't be all that bad.'

Sasuke opened the fridge and grabbed a tomato before shutting the door.

'Oh who am I kidding, that woman is a loud mouth blonde, just like the dobe. I don't know how Sakura can have two loud mouth blondes in her life, I only have one and half the time I feel like strangling him.'

Sasuke sighed when he heard pounding on the door and Naruto's loud voice.

"Sasuke-teme, let's go to Ichiraku!"


"I heard about you and Sakura. You finally got together with her, it's about time," Naruto said. Sasuke stared at him in mild surprise.

"Don't look so surprised, I knew you were in love with her. I am your best friend after all."


"It took you long enough; you know for a genius, you can be an idiot at times."

Sasuke glared at the blonde and then smirked.

"Why are you- OW!"

Sasuke's smirk widened as he looked at the blonde sprawled on the ground.

"You bastard, you pulled the seat from under me with your leg!"

"Serves you right."

The Uchiha turned back around and ignored the grumblings of the blonde as he continued eating his ramen.

Sasuke walked back home and mentally sighed when he saw Suka.

'Shit, this is going to be uncomfortable.'

As expected, Suka's eyes widened when she spotted Sasuke.

"Sa-suke-kun," She whispered.


"I heard about you and Sakura. I'm happy for you."

The Uchiha's eyebrow rose at this.

'She's happy for me? That was the last thing I expected her to say. Where's the anger?'

"You look skeptical, I'm not surprised. You expected me to get angry but I'm not. In fact, I'm honestly happy for you and yet I'm also sad. I'm sad that it couldn't be me because I love you but, because of my love, I want you to be happy. If Sakura makes you happy, then I'm glad."

Sasuke stood there, at a complete loss for words. Suka looked at him with watery eyes.

"I wish you all the happiness in the world. Take care Sasuke."

She smiled at him before walking past him.

Sasuke stood there for how long he didn't know. When he managed to get himself out of his stupor, he continued his walk home.

'What the hell was that? Was that some kind of plan to tear me and Sakura apart? Was she hoping to get me at ease and then try something? No, that can't be it. She seemed genuine and my instincts didn't go off at all.'

Sasuke reached his house and unlocked the door.
