A Vampire's Love
Anniversary of her Death

Sasuke stood on the balcony of the castle and let the lights from the moon touch his pale white skin. The 150-year-old vampire prince thought back to the tragic event that happened 50 years ago tonight.

Flashback

"They're gaining on us!" Sakura announced. "We're not going to make, my love!"

"We're almost there, keep running," Sasuke ordered.

Sasuke and Sakura ran through the forest as angry villagers chased after the two lovers.

"I don't think I can, I have eaten for 2 days and my strength is drastically low," Sakura explained.

"We can't give up, Sakura! We have to keep going!" Sasuke said.

The two vampires reached the end of the forest, only to find a river that ended in a waterfall. They glanced down; the huge drop ended in white mists, rushing waters, and several rocks. There was nowhere else to run; the where cornered.

"Sakura," Sasuke mumbled.

"Yes," Sakura said, as the villagers came towards them.

"I love you," Sasuke whispered, as he took Sakura's cold hand.

"I love you too, Sasuke," Sakura replied.

"I want to cut the girl's throat," a villager snarled.

Another laughed.

"Just as long as I get to push Mr. Vampire Boy off the cliff," he said.

The two men who were probably the leaders of the angry mob agreed and shook hands.

"Sasuke!" Sakura said worriedly as the angry mob got closer.

"I won't let them take you," Sasuke told he, he showed his fangs.

"No Sasuke, you'll die!" Sakura shouted. "I'd rather die then you."

"I have to do something."

"Don't worry, Sasuke, we'll meet again, I promise! You'll know when I return," Sakura explained.

"What are you going to do?" Sasuke asked.

"Hold them off for you to get away," Sakura replied.

"Sakura! No!"

"There's no other way," Sakura mumbled. "Now go!" she screamed, as she pushed her lover off the cliff. She knew he would survive the fall.

Sakura showed her fangs to the villagers, viscously threw herself into the mob and attacked.

---------------------

Sasuke gripped the balcony railing tightly, anger shot through his body as he remembered as he got himself out of the water that night, hearing Sakura's screams of pain. It was when he had heard her screaming that night, that he had knew she was dead.

50 years without her, 50 years of pain, 50 years of loneliness. Sakura had said that she would tell him when she had returned, but 50 years it had been and Sasuke had not yet received any sign that his lover had returned.


Sasuke sat at the large table with his brother, Itachi. A maid entered the room and poured thick red liquid into a whine glass and placed it infront of Sasuke. Sasuke picked up the glass, putting his lips to it; he drank the blood. He brought the glass away for his mouth and swished the liquid in the glass back and forth.

"It's the anniversary of Sakura's death, isn't it?" Itachi questioned.

Sasuke gave a small nod.

"Yes… It is," he replied.

"Why are you so obsessed with her?" Itachi asked calmly.

Sasuke slammed his glass down on the table; drops of blood escaped the cup and landed on the white tablecloth.

"I loved her!" he shouted.

Itachi smirked; he enjoyed making his brother angry.

"I'm just saying, if I was in your position I would have just found a new wench to serve my… sexual needs," he chuckled.

Sasuke jumped out of his chair and pressed the palm of his hands against the table.

"She was more then just some wench!" Sasuke yelled.

"All women are the same, like I've said before, the only thing they're good for is sex," Itachi taunted. "Your dead lover is no different then all the rest."

"I'll kill you!" Sasuke shouted.

Itachi smirked.

"I'd like to see that happen," he said.

Sasuke stood death glaring his brother for a few moments.

"I'm waiting," Itachi smiled.

Sasuke turned around and left the room. He knew Itachi was stronger then him and he knew that if he fought him he would probably end up being killed or just seriously injured.

Sasuke walked up the tall, curved staircase. He made his way to the door of his room and entered. A blonde girl was lying seductively on Sasuke's bed. (Its Ino, just so you know.)

"Leave!" Sasuke ordered the girl.

"What's the matter, you highness? Still hooked up on that pink-haired bimbo that died so long ago?" Ino smiled.

"I gave you an order," Sasuke replied.

"I have other order from Itachi," Ino said.

Sasuke sighed, "Itachi sent you…"

Ino nodded.

"I just couldn't refuse," she explained. "After all, you are quite a catch."

Sasuke walked over to Ino and lay down on the bed beside her. He wrapped his arms tightly around her. Ino smiled, thinking she had finally won the vampire prince. Sasuke touched his lips to Ino's ear. His long fingernails drug deep into her stomach.

"Leave," Sasuke whispered in Ino's ear. "Unless you want to die that is."

Sasuke let go of the girl; Ino jumped off of the bed and hurried out the door, closing it behind her. Sasuke laughed to himself. All girls were after him and it was pathetic seeing their attempts to win him over. Their was only one girl for Sasuke, she had won his heart over 80 years ago and all because everyone else thought she was never coming back doesn't mean that Sasuke would believe it. He would never let go of the women he loved. She was the soul he didn't posses, she was the heart beat he didn't have, she was the air he couldn't breathe… she was the warmth he couldn't feel…

Sasuke closed his eyes and remembered Sakura's pale white skin, her long pink hair, her jaded green eyes…

Sasuke could almost hear her angelic like voice, coming from her vibrant red lips.

Haruno Sakura was out there somewhere and Sasuke would find her…


What do you think?

Was it good?

Should I continue?
