Well I've had this one typed up for a while...but Fanfiction wouldn't let me upload it...but here it is now...
Chapter 16 – B*! Please -
I awoke to a soft beating in my ear, like a small drum. I opened my eyes and was blinded by the sun pouring through the window. I didn't feel the cold satin pillow case against my face, but something rather warm and smooth…felt kinda like skin.
I tensed and sat up, quickly. An arm tightened around my waist, and I looked down to see Sasuke laying underneath me, eyes half open, his hair a mess over his eyes, his arm above his head, sun shining on his amazingly fit body, with those abs of steel….
* Oh My God! He's So Sexy! *
"Sorry!" I mumbled, reluctantly taking my eyes off him, and scrambling out of bed.
"What are you sorry for?" He asked, sitting up and rubbing his eyes.
You know you want him!
Go away! I can't think like this!
"For laying on you" I whispered.
He raised an eyebrow and I could have sworn I saw a smirk.
"It's fine" he said and I looked at him dumbfounded.
"Really?" I asked, surprised.
"Yea" he said, before getting up and going into the bathroom.
Me laying on him is ok?
I took this couple of minutes to quick change. I put on a black tank top with the Haruno symbol on the front and back, black shorts, with a white skirt over top. I exited the room, just as I heard the bathroom door open, and went downstairs to make breakfast. I was halfway through making breakfast when he came down the stairs. He leaned on the counter and watched me, making me super nervous and embarrassed.
"Can I help you?" I asked.
"Well maybe, but right now I'm just waiting for breakfast to be ready" he said, a small grin adorning his features.
I blushed and turned back to making breakfast.
"It'll be done soon, ok?" I said after a little bit.
I heard him push off the counter and walk out of the room. I sighed and quickly finished, bringing two plates out to the dinning room. I set them on the table, and saw Sasuke inspecting the glass door.
"You did this?" he asked.
"Yea but I had help" I said, walking over to him.
"This team of yours…" he started, "Will I get to meet them?"
Ryota flashed through my mind.
"Uh…maybe some day" I said, "No come sit and eat before it gets cold".
I went over to my plate and sat down. Sasuke sat down across from me, and we ate in silence.
"You know," he said after a few minutes, "You don't have to make food all the time".
"I know but I like cooking" I said, not looking up from my plate.
We ate in quiet again. When I finished my plate, I picked it up and started towards the kitchen.
"Just bring your plate when your done" I said.
When I started cleaning the dishes, I noticed his presence behind me. I turned around to take his plate but he pulled it away from me.
"I'll do them" he said, defiantly.
I sighed and moved out of his way and made my way upstairs. I glanced at the clock, to see it read 8:45, I quickly grabbed my weapons pouch and head band and headed back downstairs. Sasuke was just coming out of the kitchen. He looked up at me as I tied my head band around my waist.
"Going somewhere?" he asked.
"Yea training with my team" I said, tying my weapon pouch around my thigh.
He grabbed my hand and pulled me close to him.
"Becareful" he said, looking me straight in the eyes.
"They are only 13 years old, how much trouble could they be?" I asked.
But he just looked at me, with those cold, emotionless eyes and I sighed.
"Fine I'll be careful" I said, and turned to put my shoes on.
"Are you doing anything today?" I asked, as I put my shoes on.
"Going to see the Hokage" he said.
"Hm alright, well I'll see you after that" I said and walked out the door.
Once outside I sprinted to the training fields. Nobody was there…
"Phew, I made it" I sad, relieved.
"Bout time you got here" Isao said.
I looked up into the tree I was standing under, to see all three of them perched on different limbs.
"Yea, well" I said scratching the back of my head, giving them a big smile, "I got lost on the road of life" That was the first thing that popped into my head.
Geez I learned Kakashi's excuses too… -Sweatdrop-
"LIAR!' They yelled.
"Ugh fine, get down here, so we can start training" I said.
"ALRIGHT! Training!" Isao yelled, jumping down from the tree, the other two followed.
"Kay Team!" I said turning to face them.
They stopped walking and looked at me, I pulled two bells out of my weapons pouch.
"You must get these bells from me before noon, who ever doesn't will fail."
(A/N: Doesn't this all sound familiar? Lol)
"What?" Isao yelled.
"But there is only two" Chika exclaimed.
"Go!" I said and backed away as Ryota and Chika jumped into the trees.
I steadied myself as Isao jumped at me, swinging his leg at my head. I grabbed his ankle and flung him at the oncoming Chika and they crashed to the ground. I barely missed Ryota's fist. He stumbled then turned to face me. We locked in hand to hand combat, punch here, kick there. I managed to punch him in the stomach, sending him flying across the field. I raised my chakra filled fist getting ready to run at him when I felt a chakra presence, that didn't belong to anyone on my team, and it was headed for Ryota.
"Ryota!" I yelled and he froze, aware of the huge chakra headed for him. I ran towards him, but I wasn't going to make it. I pumped chakra into my feet, and jumped. I grabbed him, just as the ground exploded under him. Everything seemed to slow down. The bells rang loudly in my ears, Ryota gripped my shirt tightly. I felt cold metal slid past my stomach, tearing my shirt and slicing my side. We rolled out of the way, as I held Ryota under my arm. I knelt on my knees, I grabbed my side as warm liquid oozed out.
"Oh my god" Ryota yelled.
"Shhh" I tried to calm him down, "I'll be fine."
My hand glowed green, but the wound wouldn't heal. My eye sight blurred for a second, and I was kinda dizzy.
*Shit, what is going on?*
"Well Well Well, if it isn't the great apprentice of the 4th Hokage" A sneer rose from the dust.
Chika and Isao ran over to us.
"Sakura – sensei" Chika shrieked, tears forming.
"Don't worry about it" I hissed under my breath.
"What? I don't get a hello?" The person sneered again.
The dust had settles and I saw a red haired girl in extremely short shorts, and a low cut shirt. I narrowed my eyes.
"I can't believe they have someone as good as you, babysitting brats" she laughed, "Unless the stories aren't true."
"My sensei is a great person!" Isao yelled standing in front of me, fists clenched tightly at his sides.
"Oh really?" She said in mock curiousity.
She threw another kunai, directly at Isao.
"Isao!" Chika screamed.
I moved faster and caught it inches from Isao's face. The tip was laced in purple liquid.
I threw it at the ground.
"Go!" I snapped, stepping in front of Isao.
I could not protect them, if this bitch was using poison, especially since my body is already effected by it.
"We are not leaving you!" Ryota started to argue.
"I'm not asking, I'm ordering, now go!" I glared at him.
They stood together, hesitant, but then ran off in the direction of the Hokage Tower.
*Smart kids…Now let's see if I can do anything about this bitch, before I can't feel my body*
"Are you challenging me?" She asked in a high pitched voice.
"Very good" I growled, "Maybe your not as dumb as you look" And I moved, fast.
I was talking with Tsunade when these three kids barge in screaming, one was even crying.
"Hokage - sama!" They yelled in unison.
"What is it kids?" I saw her tense slightly.
"it's…well, there's….or…there was…" They couldn't make an understandable sentence.
"KIDS!" Tsunade yelled, slamming her hands on the table.
"Sakura - sensei was training us and suddenly the ground broke underneath Ryota, and she jumped to get him, and got cut by a kunai, and then the girl that attacked us threw a poisoned kunai at me, but Sakura caught it and made us leave" the red haired boy exclaimed.
I tensed up ready to spring into action.
"What did this girl look like?" Tsunade asked.
"She had red hair, ridiculously short shorts and a really low cut shirt" The blonde that had been crying, finally spoke up.
That was all I needed to hear, and I was out the door.
"Sasuke!" I heard Tsunade yell after be, but I could not stop.
I ran with all my might to the training field. I heard the clash of metal and a few yells.
As I entered the field, I saw Sakura throw Karin into a tree. The entire field was nearly destroyed. Trees weren broken and giant craters litered the ground. Karin was badly beaten up and Sakura had a few scrathes, a bad gash on her cheek, and a huge wound on her side that was bleeding severly. She took one look at me and I could tell in her eyes that something was very wrong. Karin started to get back up.
"Ah! Sasuke-kun! You've come to save me, your loving fiance!" Karin's words stung my ears.
I ignored her and started to make my way towards Sakura, who's bright green eyes, tinted with anger and fear, never left mine.
Karin sprang forward, and I hesitated in my steps. Sakura, easily tossing her aside, focused her eyes on the ground.
"Sakura?" I asked, softly, and she flinched.
I stopped a few yards away from her.
"Sakura, look at me" I pleaded, the sound of my voice, shocking me.
"Liar!" She hissed, and I flinched inwardly.
"What are you talking about?" I asked cautiously.
"You lied to her Sasuke - kun, how could you even start to love someone like her, when you already love me" Karin sneered from her spot below a tree.
"Shut Up!" I yelled.
Two Anbu dropped down and grabbed her.
"Hey! Let go of me!" She shrieked.
"Sakura? Sasuke?" I heard Tsunade's voice.
Sakura turned and ran into the forest. I had no choice but to follow her, figure out exactly what was going on.
I kept her in my sight as I began to gain on her. She was tiring out. She soon stopped in a small clearing, just outside of town. She kept her back to me, but she knew I was there. Her fists were tight at her side.
"Why Sasuke?" She whispered.
I walked up behind her. She turned and started hitting me on the chest, and not lightly either.
"Why Sasuke, why would you come back, just to tear me apart again with lies!" She yelled.
I caught her fists, and she stole a glance at me. I caught her eyes, and she quickly shut them.
"Sakura look at me" I commanded.
Tears rand down her cheeks, but she did not open them.
"Sakura, Please!" All authority left my voice, and it came out as a squeak, but I didn't care.
Slowly they opened, bright emerald, burning with tears.
"Sakura, I did not come back to tear you apart, I came back to marry you, to start a family with you, even…" I stumbled over words, not really wanting to explain more then I already had.
She blinked at me, I let go of her wrists, and they came to rest on my chest.
*She makes me say so much*
"So she really told me lies" She asked after awhile.
"Yes" I nodded, "She's an ex-teammate who, unlike you, didn't grow up."
There was a glimmer in her eyes again, a small smile adorning her tear streaked face. She was so cute, that I felt myself being drawn towards her.
He was leaning towards me. Oh my god! My face heated up, and I thought I was going to burst. His lips were only inches from mine. Is this for real?
I heard rustling of bushes and giggling. We pulled away from each other, and looked down upon the faces of my team. Isao and Chika had huge smiles on their faces and Ryota stood farther behind, face red, but glaring at the ground.
*I'm gonna kill them*
A blush spread from one cheek to the other and I looked over at Sasuke. He had his hands stuffed in his pocket, red face, and a pout adorning his lips. I couldn't help but giggle.
"What are you doing out here?" I asked.
"We came to see if you were ok" Isao said, gesturing to my bruises and scratches.
"But we can see your completely fine, so we'll be going back" Chika said, grabbing Isao's collar and hauling him away with Ryota trialing after them.
Sasuke and I stood their in an awkward silence.
"Do you want to go back?" We asked in unison, as we looked at each other.
As I looked into his eyes, I realized the cold Sasuke was back. The warmth that had edged into his eyes before was gone. I sighed and nodded towards the way my team disappeard to. He gave a slight nod of his head. I went to take a step and everything went black.
*Damn, I almost let my emotions get the better of me*
I watched as Sakura talked to the brats, before they left. We stood there in silence, I had no idea what to say. So I recollected myself and looked at her.
"Do you want to go back?" I asked at the same time she did.
She looked up at me and though she showed no physical evidence, her eyes knew I had slipped up and wasn't planning on going anywhere with it. She nodded in the way the brats went in, and I nodded back. She took a step, and fell. I quickly moved and caught her, resting her on my knee, as I crouched down.
*Damn, what the hell just happened*
~Sakura got cut with a kunai…..and then the girl through a poisoned kunai at me~
I picked her up and ran back to the village. Tsunade was just getting ready to leave.
"Tsunade! Sakura has been poisoned!" I yelled.
She stopped in her tracks and faced me.
"Come lay her down" she said urgently, trying not to let worry enter her voice.
I watched as she ripped more of Sakura's shirt and her hand glowed green as she placed it on the wound.
"Dammit Sakura!" She hissed under her breath.
Sakura's skin had turned to an ashy color, and my heart started beating more and more rapidly.
"She tried to heal herself with the poison in her, stupid girl!" Tsunade yelled.
After what seemed like an eternity, Tsunade got all the poison out, and Sakura's color returned to normal. Her eyes slowly opened and she sat up fast.
"What happened?" She asked.
"Owwwww!" Sakura cried out rubbing the back of her head.
"You of all people should know better then to try and heal a wound with poison in it" Tsunade lectured.
"I'm sorry, sensei" Sakura mumbled.
"Damn straight!" Tsunade mumbled before getting up and turning to leave with Shizune and Anbu.
Sakura looked at me.
"I'm kinda getting tired of being the Damsel in distress" She muttered, and it took all I had not to laugh.
Alright, the ending was kinda rushed, because I wanted to get it out…so yea sorry if you don't like it…..
