Chapter one: Coming Home to Sakura

Me no own Naruto. If I did, Neji, Sakura, and Shikamaru would always be together! X3

Characters are OOC.


Haruno Sakura paced the floor of her mentor and mother figure's office worriedly. "How could you send them on that S-class mission?!" She shouted.

"Calm down Sakura-chan." Tsunade said.

"How can I be calm when my favorite ninja are on a mission?!" Sakrua wailed. Tsunade smiled and patted her on the head. "If you want to go do guard duty with Asuma and Kakashi, they should be here in a couple of hours." She said.

Sakura flew out the door Tsunade chuckled. "She really does love those two." She said to her empty office.

Sakura leaped up onto the gates and greeted her fellow Anbu. "Hello Sakura-chan." Hatake Kakashi said.

Sakura smiled at her former sensei and waved. "Hey Kakashi." She said as she watched for her beloved ninja.

Sarutobi Asuma chuckled and ruffled her hair. "How are you holding up?" He asked.

Sakura sniffled. "I hate not having my boys home." She replied. "Is that brown hair I see?" Kakashi asked as he spotted Hyuuga Neji and Nara Shikamaru's hair from a mile away. Sakura's head spun to look and she flew off the wall with a whoop. "SHIKA!!!! NEJI!!!!" She screamed as she tackled them both to the ground. Shikamaru sighed and Neji chuckled. "Hey Saku. We've missed your gorgeous face." He said. "Yeah and Neji was mean to me on the mission!" Shikamaru whined. Sakura scowled with mock annoyance at the Hyuuga heir and planted her hands on her hips. "How was he mean to you Shika-chan?" She asked. "He made me sleep with Lee and Naruto's snoring!" Shikamaru wailed. Sakura gasped. "You didn't!?" She asked. "I had no choice! Genma and Raidou dragged me into their tent for some odd reason! I wanted to rescue you Shika-kun. Really I did!" Neji protested. Lee and Naruto pouted. "Mou! The snoring isn't that bad is it?" They asked. All three nodded fervantly.

"Yes it really is. You two sound like you're waging a war." Sakura replied. The two men blushed and rubbed the backs of their heads sheepishly. "Sorry." They said. Sakura giggled. "It's ok. You two can't help it." She replied. Her giggling made them feel better and so they all headed back to the village speaking happily to one another.
