Chapter Four: Rescuing Me

The tension began to grow by the minutes. When night began to fall, there was to be a special dinner with Mari as the special guest. Hinata was dressed into a pastel blue kimono with the setting sun at the hem. Her hair was pinned up into a bun held up with a pair of chopsticks. Pale powder was dusted onto her face, painted lip, and charcoal eye liner.

To Sasuke, she looked prettier than the night he received his precious gift. It was strange being around her. Every time he glanced at her, he smiled and the corner of his heart twitched. Usually when he brought in women, he'd give them the silent treatment. She made him talk and smile, which made him even more excited than last night. His thoughts were rudely cut short when he heard a certain someone clear their throat.

"Sasuke-sama, are you sure you do not want to take up my offer? The offer still stands," she said trying to use a cute voice.

"No, I am quite satisfied with what I have," he said playfully while glancing at Hinata. Mari began to fume at the sight.

"And what is it that you have that is keeping you satisfied?" she managed to say between her clenched teeth with a thick layer of innocence.

"Why my flower of course. Everywhere I go her beauty is there by my side," he answered while caressing his flower's hand. Hinata stayed silent but blushed when Sasuke confessed and touched her hand. She knew that she was only a toy, but he still managed to make her heart flutter. It was a foreign feeling to her to tell the truth. Her mind snapped back to reality when she heard Sasuke stand up.

"Excuse me ladies, I have something to attend at the moment." Before he left, he quickly pecked Hinata on the cheek, which annoyed Mari. Hinata's eyes landed on the man that annoyed her from earlier. She still had no clue who he was, which bugged the heck out of her. When Sasuke and that strange man left, the room fell under a dead silence. It sure didn't bother Hinata, she was used to be being locked up in a room. But Mari was fidgeting. At her palace, everyone was bustling around and barely anyone slept.

To break the growing tension, Mari began to talk to her enemy. "So, what brings you here to this palace?" she asked.

Hinata placed down her wine and raised a brow at the woman sitting opposite of her. "N Nothing actually.I I was s sold to the l lord o of this c castle as a g gift."

Mari smirked. Just as she thought, another castle whore. "So you're not engaged to him?"

"I I s share a a c chamber w with him," she said taking a sip of her drink.

"And your body," spat Mari in disgust. "So that's why he was all clingy. Don't worry, you'll be free soon. When I marry him anyways," she said flipping her hair over her shoulder.

"Y Y Yeah, t that'll b be t the d day," she managed out.

"What do you mean by that? Are you saying that he will accept my offer?" she asked a little to pleased.

"O Of c c course," said Hinata as she stood up. " I If you d don't m mind, I I have to go somewhere."

Before Hinata left, she heard Mari whisper, "going to pass your body around. Tch." That's when she turned her heal and stood right behind Mari.

"What did you say?" she asked with an angered tone.

"I didn't say anything. What am I doing wasting my breath to a filthy whore like you anyways? I have no clue what Sasuke-sama sees in you. Oh yeah, you're only a toy, that's all," she said calmly before popping a piece of candy into her mouth.

"T T thank you for the c compliment," lied Hinata as she glared at the woman . Mari nearly choked on the meat if it wasn't for the glass of whine. Hinata walked out of the dining room with a proud smirk on her face. When Hinata was wondering around in the corridors, she accidentally bumped into someone.

"Sorry Hinata-sama," said a scratchy voice.

"It's n n no prob-" She stopped mid sentence when she saw it was the man from earlier. "-lem. W W Who a are y y you a again?" she asked.

"Forgive me for my rudeness. I am the royal advisor, Orochimaru," he said slithery.

"H How do you know m my n n name?" she asked curiously.

"Oh, I was at Sasuke-sama's speech. Would you care to join me for a walk on this beautiful night?" he asked with a devilish grin. Hinata reluctantly agreed. In time they began a simple conversation.

"…so you were sold off as a gift to this palace?" he asked interested.

"W Well, t t that's h how much I've g gathered so f f far. I'm t taking that S Sasuke t thinks of me as a d different kind of t toy," she said with a sigh.

"A toy huh?" he said under his breath.

Hinata felt her body being pressed up against the wall. "Wh-what are y y you d d doing?" she said with a scared expression.

"You said you were a toy. I don't think our dear Sasuke-sama would mine sharing, ne?" he said while untying Hinata 's obi.

"S S Stop i it!" she screamed frantically. Why was no one coming to rescue her? Suddenly she realized where they were, it was the end of the castle were nearly nobody goes. What did she do to deserve this? Was it because she was really a toy?


Sasuke sat in his study chambers as he read all his scrolls that were sent in. All he did was read them and approved them. What a drag. 'After all this work is done, I think I will visit a certain flower of mine,' he thought with a smirk on his face.

Hazaah! His last scroll! Sasuke sighed heavily with relief. With little effort, he pushed himself out of his chair and walked out of the forsaken room. That's when he heard a scream from the end of the castle. 'Hinata!' his mind screamed. Quickly his legs picked up speed and ran in the direction of the cry. In less than a minute, he saw a sight that made his veins pop and his eyes bleed red.

There was Orochimaru, his royal advisor, touching 'his' property. No one touches an Uchiha's property, especially when they are royally pissed off. "Orochimaru!" he said with power in his voice. "What are you doing?" he asked with force.

"Nothing, I was just talking to Hinata," he said while quickly releasing Hinata. The woman ran towards Sasuke's side with her hands tightly holding her slipping kimono together.

"Hinata-sama, you WILL respect her," he spat out.

"Yes your lordship," he retorted with his slimy grin.

"You may leave us now," he said with his fists clenched. Orochimaru brushed past the two while smirking at the shaking girl. Hinata just shivered.

As soon as he was gone, Hinata let out a sigh. She felt her body being spun around to be locked in a tight embrace by Sasuke. "Did he touch you?" he asked with concern.

"No," she managed out. Suddenly her body was back against the wall, but much more gentle. Sasuke's head found his way to his new resting-place, the space between her shoulder and neck. To Sasuke, that was were her fragrance was the most intoxicating of all. She smelt of fresh rain mixed with lavender.

"Good," he said before he crushed his lips with hers. His tongue found it's way into her mouth as it explored her cavern. Hinata lightly moaned into the passionate kiss. Sasuke's hand found it's way to Hinata's thigh as he brought it around his waist. He pushed aside all the layers of the complicated silk kimono while Hinata pushed down Sasuke's hakama. Unwillingly, Sasuke broke the kiss so they could catch their breaths.

Both of them were heavily panting as sweat began to build up. "I don't like other people touching my stuff, especially if it's you," he said before plunging into Hinata.

"I'll keep that in mind," she moaned out as her other leg wrapped around Sasuke's waist. Sasuke glided in and out of Hinata while his hands grasped the sides of Hinata's waist to keep her up. While they were still going at it, he used one hand to find a door to one of the extra rooms. Found it. With Hinata still on him, he walked into the room and lied them against the unused futon.

Sasuke used his hands to slide off his blossom's kimono as Hinata used her hands to take off Sasuke's yukata. He kept pumping into her as she fiercely kissed him. Their tongues began to battle each other at they were reaching their peaks. With one final push, Hinata moaned loudly into Sasuke's kiss as he collapsed onto her. Both began to pant heavily once again from their love making as their sweat mixed together.

"Don't forget, you belong to me and no one else," he murmured into Hinata's neck before he fell asleep. Hinata smiled to herself, so she did have somewhere she belonged.


"What are you doing in here? This is personal stuff, Mari-sama," said Orochimaru.

"Oh! I was…uh I was ah, looking for something, yeah that's it!" she said while dropping a scroll. Orochimaru walked passed her and picked up the scroll with a raised brow.

"Putting a fake scroll into Uchiha-sama's are we?" he asked as his eyes scanned the scroll. "So you want to elope with him, ne?"

"Yes," she confessed. "But I can't do that with that tramp in the way," she whined.

"Hmm…interesting," he said with his finger on his chin. "Same problem. If I help you get what you want, you'll have to help with want I want in return," he slithered

"What is it that you want?" she asked cautiously.

"I want the blossom," he said with an evil smirk.
