My Happy Ending.

Chapter One: Weakness

She hated that word. The one word that could kill her: weak. She was always the weak one. Never the strong. She was never good enough for them. Never good enough to fight, she always had to stand to the side lines. She was the last chosen to play. Why? Because she was weak. Fragile. Unwanted. Annoying.

She landed to her feet. Her long pink hair feel over her shoulders. She looked up at the now setting sky. She was surrounded by trees. She would no longer be weak. She was sent on a one man mission, after receiving the rank of ANBU. Her mission was to find and kill S-class criminal Uchiha Itachi.

Everyone told her she was strong enough for this type of mission. She could handle it, couldn't she. She sighed to her self, taking off all her ninja attire. And changed into a tight red dress, that was a little bit higher then mid-thigh. She made her way though the rest of the woods, and into the city.

As soon as she reached the city. She went into the first bar she saw. Scanning the area she saw the black cloak with red clouds that she was hoping for. He sat alone taking small sips of a drink. She smiled, as she walked over and took a seat next to him.

He wasn't as scary as people said. Now that see got a good look at him, he had no huge muscles falling out of his shirt. In fact from far away he kinda looked well... scrawny. He wasn't even that tall 5.7 at the most.

His blood red eyes turned and looked at her. "Yes?" he asked. His voice wasn't scary or sadistic, it was deep and smooth. Keep calm... she thought. Her instincts were to run, but her mission was to stay. She could feel his high amount of chakra.

"I was just wondering what a good looking guy like you was doing in a place like this?" she said.

"Hn." Sakura smiled, her bright greens eyes shined. She thinks she has me fooled... Itachi thought, smirking.

"I'm Hotaru by the way." Sakura said.

"Nice to meet you, Hotaru."


A scream escaped Sakura's lips, as she was thrown into the wall. She coughed up some blood. She cursed her self, her eyes where clamped shut, her whole body burned in pain. Her eyes stung. She could feel the lump in her throat telling her to cry. She wanted to, but she wouldn't. She needed to be strong.

He stared down at her. His raven hair was tied back and his bangs framed his beautiful but tired looking face. "What are you doing here, Kunoichi?"

"I was here to assassinate you." she mumbled, her voice barely a whisper.

"Who sent you?" he said, his body moving closer if possible.

"The Hokage of the leaf village, Tsunade." Sakura said, bitting her lip, trying to stop the tears.

"And you who are you really, Yumi?" he asked, his eyes turning into slits.

"My name is Haruno Sakura, the Hokage's apprentice." she smiled, coughing a little bit of blood up.

"I didn't think they would send someone so important. You must not mean a thing to them." he smirked.

"What do you mean?" Sakura asked, her eyes widening.

"You're hated. Unwanted. Not needed. You mean nothing to them. Your nothing but a withering flower. In other words your weak." he smirked seeing more tears roll down her face.

She hated it she was so weak. Her brain just snapped. "I... I don't try to be weak... you know." she looked down at her hands, a small smile on her face, as more tears feel. "Every time I ask for help. It's the same thing. 'Not right now Sakura.' I'd ask them later. They'd say no again. So I tried to teach my self..." she hiccuped. "I know I'm weak, annoying, unwanted, fragile. And every time I tired they'd put me down. But..."

Itachi stared at her. "Someone once told me, when I was studding for the ANBU exams, he told me that I should give up. I wasn't strong enough to pass. He told me that I can't change my destiny. But I still tried." she said, pushing her self against the wall, to push her self up. "And that's why I'm not weak."

He smirked. "I can make you stronger." he said. She gapped at the S-class criminal. "I can train you. But you... you would have to forget everything about Kohona. Everything from your past."


"Are you willing to forget?" he asked. She thought for a moment.


He grabbed a hold of her shoulders and sat her down on the bed. "When you wake up you will only remember me." he said. She looked up at him. Her eyes widened seeing the black comas in his eyes start to move. Her eyes rolled to the back of her head, and she passed out.
