White flowers were blossoming everywhere and a cherry blossom tree stood behind them. She was looking down. He looked at the gorgeous girl standing in front of him. Flower petals fell all around them.

She smiled shyly with a faint blush on her cheeks.

"Neji…I…", she looked up into his beautiful white eyes, "I want you to know …you're the first guy I've ever liked."

Her shy smile turned into a beautiful grin.

"I like you," she said.

"I can't believe you said that…" Neji responded, his facial expression the same stoic look.

Sakura's smile faltered.

"Because I should have said it first," he continued, "I think… before you liked me, I already like you."

He gazed into her eyes, and a slow smile spread across his face.

"Sakura, be my girlfriend."

Sakura smiled up at him and walked into his arms. Neji wrapped his arms around her and beamed. She rested her head against his chest.

'I think I love him,' Sakura thought.


"Pst…Sakura," Tenten whispered, "Sakura!"

In the middle of English class, Sakura was sitting at her desk, her head upon her cheek, grinning like crazy. Her mouth began to shape into a pucker…


Sakura was in Neji's arms. They leaned in to kiss…


A book hit her desk and Sakura sprung to life.

"Is this class too boring for you, Sakura?" Kurenai asked demandingly.

Sakura realized that she was daydreaming and looked down at her hands. Her long pink hair was pulled back into a half-up, half-down hairstyle and her silver, star-shaped earrings dangled an inch or two from her ears. Sakura brushed her bangs out of her face and turned to her left.

There was Hyuuga Neji, smiling at her. Happily, she shyly smiled back and turned back to her desk.

'She's cute,' Neji thought. He grinned, flipped his pen and got back to work.

The bell rang and students began to file out of the classroom. Neji slung his backpack over his shoulder and walked out of the class. Sakura poked her head through the doorway, smiling at his retreating figure. She jumped excitedly.

Tenten and Hinata rolled their eyes, still sitting inside the classroom, at Sakura who was pressed up against the doorway, still staring at her beloved crush. Tenten shook her head and shut her eyes.


The classroom was now empty and Sakura sat on top of one of the desks. Tenten and Hinata were the only ones left.

"Were you dreaming about him again?" Tenten asked.

Sakura looked down.

Sighing, Tenten sat up on the desk next to Sakura.

"You're getting worse by the second, I swear." Tenten said.

"What were you doing in class?" Hinata said, finally piping up.

Tenten and Sakura glanced over at Hinata. Her cute blue beanie pushed her straightened blue hair gently in front of her eyes.

Tenten smirked, "It must've been…"

"I dreamed of…LOVE VICTORY!" Sakura shouted.

"Shhh!" Tenten and Hinata yelled, clapping their hand over Sakura's mouth.


"Can I really do this?" Sakura asked nervously.

Her two best friends glanced at each other and pushed her into the corner in front of the stairs.

Sakura's hands were shaking from anxiety and in her hands was a note.

Sakura looked at Tenten with a look that said, "Do you really think I can do this?"

"Absolutely. Okay, go for it!" Tenten mouthed back from a distance.

"Here he comes!" Hinata told Sakura.

Hyuuga Neji was heading towards the stairs with his iPod plugged in his ears.

"I can't. Too nervous; heart's beating too fast; can't breathe!" Sakura thought, hyperventilating.

"Maybe I shouldn't do this!" Sakura thought, turning away, "No! I have to tell him my feelings."

Sakura shut her eyes and flung the note out in front of her. Head bent, she said, "Neji Hyuuga! I like you, please go out with me!"

She opened her eyes, and turned her head only to see that Neji was walking up the stairs. He apparently missed her and didn't see her.

That's when she looked up in front of her…
