Humble Beginnings

A millionaire, a girl swooned over by many, smart, has a loving family, great friends, what more could she ask for?

This young girl had lived her life, having everything from the start, being fed with a silver spoon. Unlike others, she didn't have to break a sweat to get everything. To cut a long story short, she was lucky, very lucky.


She looked back and saw a girl with bright red hair and stunning blue eyes. She smiled.

"Hey…" Sakura said as the girl spread her arms wide.

Sakura took her gently into her arms, she smiled brightly.

"I missed you onee-san!" she said as she wrapped her arms around Sakura's neck.

"I missed you too Mika-chan." She said as she kissed her small forehead. (AC: small forehead…he..hehe..)

Sakura had the ideal family, and no, she wasn't being idealistic because in this reality she did have the ideal family. It was complete, and each of them loved one another like no other. Though they had different personalities, different reactions to situations, they were one in heart.

"Oh Sakura, you've return! How was the business trip with the Matakishi's?" her mother asked.

"They we're wonderful! They were hospitable enough to let me stay at their house while I discussed the matters with them, and their son…he was so adorable, he was very bashful though we are the same age. I liked him, not as a lover but as brother, he was just a sweetie." Sakura said as she placed her hand under her chin and looked up thoughtfully.

Sakura's mother giggled as they talked some more.

"Ohayo Otou-san! How have you been? Having those morning strolls lately?" Sakura asked as she kissed her father on the cheek.

"Hai Hai Sakura. I missed you dear. Did everything go ok?" he asked.

"Everything went perfectly! They even asked me if we wanted to eat dinner with them next time. So I told them, why not." Sakura said as she smiled.

The day went by, with nothing more but laughs, smiles and heart-warming discussion.

"Oh Sakura, your father, me and Mika are going on a trip. I was thinking you were too busy with the business, so I thought maybe you wouldn't want to come." Her mom said as she smiled sadly.

"Good thinking Okaa-san. I'm attending a conference 2 days from now, so yes, most likely I wouldn't be able to come." Sakura said as she smiled.

"Oh good. So no hard feelings?" she asked.

"Of course not Okaa-san." Sakura said as more subjects were brought up.

Sakura woke up with a start, she heard tapping on her window, and she pushed the thought aside. Suddenly another tap was heard. She stood up and opened it with caution only to be hit with a stone on her forehead.

"Youch! What the heck?!" Sakura said as she clutched her acing forehead.

"Oy Sakura!"

She looked out, her hand still on her now swelling forehead.

"Keiichi?" she said.

"Yeah, sorry about that but I just had to ask you, will you go out with me?" he asked, in his outstretched hands was a bouquet of roses.

"Oh my…don't you think it's a bit too…early for that? I mean it is 2 o'clock in the morning for pete's sake! Can't that wait until tomorrow morning?" she asked.

"No! I need to know if you're willing to give this young man in love a chance to be your man." He asked, smiling cheekily.

'Oh boy…how to I deal with these kinds of will-you-go-out-with-me-even-if-it's-midnight suitors? They are so stressful!' Sakura thought. (ooohh…snap! She's bragging…she's bragging!)

"Look Keiichi, you're a really nice guy but I can't go out with you…I'm sorry, and no, I'm not seeing anyone if that's what you're thinking. Being in a serious relationship never really crossed my mind at the moment. I'm so sorry…Are you ok with that Keiichi? Keiichi? HEY!" Sakura looked down and saw an unconscious man on the ground, looking petrified as ever.

"Oh my! That's the third time it happened. I have to ask one of our guards to get him." Sakura said as she dialed the intercom.

"When will they ever stop?" Sakura asked herself as placed the phone back on its rack and walked back to her bed and fell asleep.

When she opened her eyes, she was blinded by the light coming from the window.

"Ugh…morning already? Time to work…again…" Sakura said as she swung her legs at the bedside, and stretched her arms up high. "Yaawwwnnn…."


"Come in." Sakura said.

"Lady Sakura, you have a visitor." The maid said as she bowed.

"Who is it?" She asked as she stood up, walking into the bathroom.

"I believe it was Mr. Uzumaki." She said.

Water was heard from the bathroom, most likely Sakura had started freshening up. She walked out of the bathroom still in her pajamas, which by the way was white with pink bunny prints. (like the picture of the playboy rabbit)

"I'll be right down. Please prepare breakfast, cinnamon toast waffles and a glass of orange juice, freshly squeezed and maybe 5 bowls of beef ramen too." Sakura said as she combed her hair.

"Hai." The maid said as she bowed and stepped out, closing the door on her way.

Sakura looked at mirror, stepped out and down the stairs she go.

"Naruto!" Sakura said as she gave a friendly hug.

"Hey Sakura-chan! How have you been?" Naruto asked as they sat down on the couch.

"I've been good, business…well its been doing good since you started supplying those ramen." Sakura said as she laughed.

"Has it really? Well ramen is my all time favorite!" Naruto said as he smiled cheekily.

"Talk about cliché…well, how's your business been doing so far?" Sakura asked.

"Doing good, I've decided to go into the real estate industry. Real estate's make more money than being a supplier of different goods." Naruto said.

"Oh…well I decided to go into the fashion industry. That was the reason why I went on that business trip." Sakura said.

"Ahh…" Naruto said. "So did it go well?"

"Actually well is more of an understatement…say perfect! They asked me if I wanted to take shipping with them too." Sakura said.

"That's great!" Naruto said.

"Excuse me my Lady, but breakfast is ready." The maid said as she bowed.

"Have you eaten Naruto?" she asked.

"Nope. Why? Will you ask me to join you?" Naruto asked.

"Yes. So let's go, we shouldn't keep the food waiting, especially if its ramen." Sakura said as she grinned.

Sakura didn't have to say anything else, Naruto had disappeared long ago, surely munching on those 6 bowls of ramen.

"Make some more ramen please, about 4 more." Sakura said as she followed Naruto to the dining area.

"Hai." The maid said.

The morning passed by with conversations and whatnots.

"I have to go Sakura-chan. I still have a business trip to attend to. Thanks for the ramen! See you soon Sakura-chan!! Bye! Take care!" Naruto said as he walked out of the front door.

"Bye Naruto! Take care!" Sakura said as she waved goodbye.

Sakura walked back to her room, falling on the bed, on her back, her arms spread wide open.

"What am I suppose to do today? Work doesn't start till, I dunno…oh yeah! I don't have to work today! I can go shopping instead!" Sakura said as she clasped her hands in front of her.

"Yosh! Shopping I shall go!" She said as she ran for the bathroom, getting ready to splurge cold cash.

Hours passed with nothing but Caching Caching! It was a shopping spree!

Sakura came home, having handful and handful of clothes and racks of clothes. Sakura got home late night. She got dressed and laid down on her four poster bed.

"Ahh…what a day! Im so tired!" Sakura said as she cuddled to her pillow.


"yhelo." Sakura said.

"Hey Sakura!"

"Ayami! Hey, whats up?" Sakura asked, grabbing the nail file on her side table.

"Oh nothing, I just came home from the club. You, what have you been up to today?" she asked.

"Oh nothing, I went shopping! I missed shopping." Sakura said as she filed her nail.

"OMG! You went shopping for the whole day?! Imagine how fun it would be to be you!" Ayami said.

"What?!" Sakura asked.

"You just don't notice it because you've been experiencing it all your life, but most of us would kill to be in your place, you're so lucky!" Ayami said.

"I don't understand." Sakura said, feeling bad suddenly.

"Oh come one Sakura! You're rich, you have a very stable business you're beautiful, adored by many. What more could a girl ask for?! And girl, you never had to work for those things you have now." Ayami said.

"I don't see why it should be a big deal." Sakura said. "I don't care about those material things!"

"Yeah yeah, can't wait to see your face when your like us...poor..." Ayami said.

"What the heck?! how could you say that?!" Sakura said.

"Yeah right. Well gotta go. Night Sakura! Bye!" and the ling went dead.

"I'm lucky? I don't understand, I mean this is natural, I've been living this way ever since." Sakura said.

"Whatever. I'll just sleep. Night night." Sakura said as she drifted off to sleep.

"I have some much of things in store for you Sakura-chan..."

"Forgive me..."
