Summary: He was the devil and she was an angel, their love forbidden but for some reason they just didn't care. They only needed one thing and that was each other. Sasu/Sak
Chapter 2: Debts
Sasuke looked at his brother than down at Sakura in confusion.
"You two know each other?" He asked, his eyes narrowed and tinted to red once more.
"Well….we've…..meet." Itachi said slowly, not wishing to upset his brother.
"Met? When? How?"
"Well, your brother, kind of got into some trouble." Sakura told him and he looked down at her, his eye brows knitted together in confusion.
"What kind of trouble?"
"Demon trouble, brother. I was killing off some demons that had escaped hell and I was injured, I…."
"Injured? He was dieing! He had taken a direct blow to the heart and his skull had been cracked open. You call that injured?" Sakura asked him while shaking her head.
"I'm a demon, I can take it."
"I'm an angel and even I can't take a direct hit to the heart without at least having a fatal injury. Besides you didn't seem like you could take it at the time, you were on floor, groaning in pain. If I hadn't arrived when I did, you would have been dead." Sakura told him and he looked to the ground, his cheeks red.
Weather in embarrassment or anger, no one knew.
"And what happened? Where do you come into this?" Sasuke asked with interest, his eyes on his Sakura still.
"Well, I had been passing and saw the whole thing, so I healed him."
"Healed him? I thought Angels couldn't heal demons." Sasuke said to her and she turned away from him.
"They can't. Sakura, don't tell me you….," Angel said and when Sakura wouldn't meet her eyes, she gasped, "You did, didn't you? SAKURA!!! Do you know how much trouble you can get in if anyone was to find out? You could be killed for it."
"Killed? For what? What did she do?" Sasuke asked, his eyes narrowed. Nobody was going to kill his mate, if he had a say in it. No matter what she had done.
"She gave me some of her blood." Itachi told them, his voice barley a whisper. Angel and Sasuke's eyes both widened.
Angels were never suppose to give blood, ever. It was a law, and it was a law that was strictly enforced. The penalty being death. Angel blood had special qualities to it, that if given to the wrong person, could mean the destruction of the Heavens. The blood stayed in a persons system for the rest of their lives, allowing them to live a longer life. It also allowed them to heal faster and when they did eventually die, go to heaven.
The reason that the blood was never given to demons, other than the fact that they were mortal enemies, was that with Angel blood in their system they could enter and exit Heaven as they pleased. However, there was a certain amount of time they could stay their before their bodies would begin to burn and, eventually, incinerate.
The hours depended on the amount of blood received and how old and powerful the Angel was. The next day, they would be able to return, for the same amount of hours.
This is how Heaven and Hell had survived so long without killing each other. When an angel entered Hell or a Demon entered Heaven, they would burn and turn to ashes or melt if they did not leave within an hour. An hour to attack was not enough for them to send their forces into the other realm. Especially when they would get burnt.
"You WHAT?!" Sasuke yelled as he turned her around, grabbed her by the shoulders and looked straight into her eyes. She was startled by the action and was very tempted to back away when she saw that his eyes were a dark blood red.
"I-I h-h-had to. I-I d-don't l-like se-seeing a-anyone d-die. De-demon or no-not." Sakura stuttered out and he scowled.
"You could be killed for it!" Sasuke told her and suddenly her fear faded, replaced by anger.
"I could be killed for it. COULD. He was DIEING! DIEING! YOUR BROTHER, YOU IDIOT! YOU SHOULD BE GRATEFUL! IF NOT FOR ME HE WOULD BE DEAD!" She yelled at him, her voice getting louder and angrier with every word she spoke.
Sasuke sighed, his eyes turning back to normal as he calmed down.
"I know, and I thank you, love, but I-I…." He grabbed her and crushed her to him, holding her in his embrace, his head on her shoulder, "I don't want to lose you."
She smiled, her anger quickly vanishing as she hugged back, "It's ok, I'm not going anywhere, don't worry." She gently ran her fingers threw his hair.
"Now that, that's over, I think we need to discuss, what I will give you in return." Itachi said to her, Sasuke pulled away from her to look at his brother, Sakura turned to look at him and Angel stared at him, her eyes narrowed.
"What do you mean?" Angel asked him.
"I mean, that…in my world, when someone saves your life, you owe them, big time. I never got to discuss this with her before, because she left before I got the chance." Itachi explained to Angel and Sakura.
"And, what is, the usual…payment?" Angel asked.
The moment the words left her mouth she regretted them. Sasuke started to growl lethally and his eyes turned blood red once more. Itachi sighed, looking down at the ground while his cheeks tinted to a red.
"Err….what's the matter?" Sakura asked in confusion. What had gotten Sasuke so mad and riled up? And why was Itachi's cheeks red and why was he looking down at the ground?
"The usual payment for a female demon that rescued a male demon is well….either…getting mated or, well……sexual favors."
"S-Sexual favors? As in sex any time they want?" Sakura asked, in disbelief.
"Yes but he will get neither." Sasuke snarled.
"I don't want either of them Sasuke. I will not take your woman from you. Believe me brother. I will not take what little happiness you have." Itachi told his brother, sincerely and sternly.
Sasuke immediately calmed down, his eyes turning back to normal, again. Sasuke nodded to his brother, his arms wrapping themselves around Sakura's waist.
"So, exactly what will Sakura get as payment?" Angel asked him and Itachi sighed.
"Well, I was thinking that since she saved my life, that she could…own it, I suppose."
"As in you're her slave for the rest of eternity?"
"NO! Absolutely not." Sakura said, immediately protesting.
"I know you may not like it, love but that is the only other payment, other than the other two, which under no circumstances will happen." Sasuke told her, nuzzling her neck to calm her down.
"Sakura, it is the demons way of life. You saved my life, so now you own it. If you refuse than it is taken as a sign that I am weak and unworthy, and my life would be taken me, anyway."
"He will be killed if you do not accept his life as payment." Sasuke told her and she sighed, biting her lower lip.
"I-I don't want you to die. That was the whole point in me saving you. I-I guess than, I will accept." Sakura said to him and Itachi nodded to her, his face void of emotion.
He didn't like the idea of being owned by anyone but he suppose if it was his brother's chosen mate, than it was alright. Sasuke was not too thrilled with the idea of his mate, owning his brother as well. That would mean that Itachi had a connect with her for the rest of his life.
Now that he had her blood flowing threw him, he would be able to feel, what she did and locate her when he wished to. They would also be able to communicate telepathically. But first, Sakura needed to accept Itachi's payment the demon way. Than she would also be able to locate and feel what she did.
Itachi sighed as he walked over to Sakura and knelt before her, his head bowed.
"Err….what are you doing?" Sakura asked in confusion.
"In order for the deal to be complete, you need to take some of his blood and….bond." Sasuke said, his voice low as he tried to keep his anger in.
"T-take his blood?"
"Bond? What the hell do you mean she has to bond with him? It's bad enough she's with you, but now she has to bond with your brother? Are you kidding me?" Angel yelled, in anger and disbelief.
"No it has to be done. That way if she is ever in trouble, he will be able to tell and know where she is. Same with her for him."
"And your ok with that?" All eyes turned to Sasuke who averted his gaze from them.
"No, I'm not, but it must be done." Sasuke answered honestly.
"Yes, well can we continue? My knees are starting to fall asleep." Itachi said with a smirk, and the two girls giggled while Sasuke snorted.
"Ummm….what am I suppose to do?"
"Well, usual you would bend down and bite his neck, but seeing as you don't have fangs, I don't think you can do that, so….I guess he'll cut open his wrist and you can drink from there." Sasuke told her and her face showed one of pure disgust as she knelt down in front of Itachi, who looked at her.
He took a deep breath and lifted his right wrist to his hand and bite into it. He lifted towards Sakura who looked ready to puke.
"This is so nasty." Angel muttered, looking away, not being able to take it.
"Your not the one doing it, so don't complain." Sakura snapped as she slowly bent her head down towards Itachi's wrist.
Sasuke who looked about ready to kill, turned around, not wanting to watch anymore, in fear that he might do something that he would regret.
Sakura's lips met Itachi's wrist and she sipped a bit of his blood before pulling away. She licked her lips, getting rid of any blood that might be on it before looking back at Itachi, who was licking his wound. It instantly closed. Sakura looked at him in amazement. Wounds didn't heal that fast. Itachi smirked at her.
"Self inflicted wounds heal much quicker than others." He told her and she nodded.
"Is that it?"
"No, wait a moment." Itachi said to her and she nodded, wondering what was going to happen next.
Than her wrist started to burn. She looked down at it and saw it was turning red. She quickly looked at Itachi who held his right wrist up, showing that it was also red. She watched as a red and white fan appeared on her wrist, a I and U under it. In the middle of the fan was a large black S. She looked at Itachi's to see that it had a small white O on it, with S and H under it. In the middle of the O was a large black M. (I'm just going to use the symbol on the back of her outfit in the beginning of the series.)
"Now it's complete." Itachi told her as he stood, and held his hand out to her. She took it while looking at the symbol on her wrist.
"So why do I have this symbol on my wrist?"
"It's tell people that he is in your debt and on his it shows that you are the master."
"The M on his wrist means that you are his master and the S on your wrist means that he is the slave." Sasuke answered her as he turned back around and she nodded.
"Right, now that, that's done, we need to make sure that nobody else knows about what happens. If this got back to Kami or the Devil, than boy would we be in some trouble." Angel told them and they nodded. They would probably all be killed.
"A little too late for that now, isn't it?" A deep, loud male voice said from behind the four. All heads snapped towards where the voice came from. The Angel's eyes widened as the two devils/demons eyes narrowed.
There stood a six foot man with eyes that were half onyx and half red and he had long raven hair. He wore black silk pants and no shirt for there were two black wings coming out from his back. There was also a white horn coming from the middle of his forehead. His name Fugaku Uchiha, the King of Hell. The Devil himself.
"Father." Itachi muttered, as he went to stand next to his brother, his hand on the hilt of the sword that hung on his left hip. Sasuke stood protectively in front of Sakura, his hand also on the hilt of his sword.
"Itachi." His father said, his voice dripping with venom. His eyes scanned the room and stopped on Angel.
Upon seeing this Itachi stepped in front of her, blocking his fathers view. His father's eyes flashed a full red for a moment before returning to normal.
"So you both like Angels do you? The Princes of Hell, taking a likening to Angels. This is not acceptable." Their father seethed, as the floor began to lightly shake.
"I don't care if you think it's acceptable or not, father. It's my life, I'll choose what to do and who to do it with." Sasuke told him, his eyes slowly turning red.
"You dare talk back to me, over some Angel whore?"
"Whore? I am most certainly not a whore for you information." Sakura said, poking her head over Sasuke's shoulder, with much difficulty.
"Ahh, so the little bitch reveals herself. Nice to finally meet you. How unfortunate that its going to be the last time." Their father said, taking a step closer to them. Sasuke's eyes were now fully blood red as he took a step forward also.
"You touch her, and I swear I'll fucking kill you." Sasuke growled, his instincts taking over. His chosen mate was being threatened and he was not going to stand for it.
"Threatening your own father, over an Angel, Sasuke? Didn't your mother teach you better?"
"I would threaten and kill anyone for her. As for my mother, she taught me everything I know, so I guess she taught me to protect those precious to me."
"She always was a bitch." His father told him and that was the last straw. Sasuke lunged at him.
Fugaku smirked as he avoided his son, and countered, smashing his fist into his back. Sasuke was sent straight to the wall, fortunately he somersaulted so his legs were in front. He bounced off the wall and flipped onto his feet. His father wasn't even turned towards him, he was slowly walking towards Sakura, who, being the brave angel she was, stood her ground. Fortunately Itachi was in front of her.
"You will not touch her, father." Itachi told him, his eyes also fully red.
"What? You have a soft spot for the Angel too?"
"She's given my brother more happiness than he has ever had, I will not let you take that away from him." Itachi told him sternly, as he got into a fighting stance.
"You will fight me over an angel as well? This is unacceptable. You two will be punished for treason." Fugaku snarled, barley containing his anger as the floor shook more.
"You can punish me all you want, father, it will not stop me from protecting her nor will it stop Sasuke from loving her." Itachi said to him.
"It will stop if I kill her."
"You will not get near her." Sasuke said as attacked his father from behind. His father whipped around and ducked in time to miss a fist in his face.
He countered and punched Sasuke in the stomach. Sasuke winced and smashed his fist into his fathers head. It didn't do much damage. His father in response stabbed Sasuke in the stomach with his horn. Sasuke's eyes widened as blood splurged out of his mouth. His face contorted in pain as he slumped forward.
"SASUKE-KUN!!!!" Sakura yelled as she tried to get to him, only to be held back by both Angel and Itachi.
"No, let me go! I need to help him!" She screamed at them, tears running down her face.
"You can't, Sakura-sama. Your…you know. It isn't safe. Stay back here with Angel. I'll help him, alright? If things get too out of hand, you need to get out of here. Return to Heaven, that's the only place your safe." Itachi told them, as he let go of Sakura. Angel tightened her grip on Sakura's arms and nodded.
"Don't let him die, please." Sakura told him, her eyes frozen on Sasuke. Itachi nodded to her and turned around.
After the shock of being stabbed vanished and pain replaced it, Sasuke took both of his hand and gripped his father's head with them. He pulled him back, taking the horn slowly out of his stomach and kicked his father in the face. His father fell back and Sasuke stumbled forward from the loss of contact. He placed his left hand on his wound and groaned when he placed too much pressure on it. Sasuke backed up away from his father slowly.
"You alright, brother?" Sasuke heard someone ask from behind him. He slightly turned his head to see Itachi.
"Does it look like I'm ok?" He growled at his brother, who rolled his eyes.
"Go back by the girls. I'll deal with father."
"No! This is my fight. He insulted and threatened MY mate. I'm the one who has to defend her."
"With your last breath, right? And, what happens, little brother, when you die and she's all alone? Having to take care of the child that you created?" Itachi asked him, his voice going very low as he said the child part. Sasuke glared at his brother and scowled, knowing he was right.
"Keep him busy for five minutes. Long enough so I can figure out where the hell to go. Alright?"
"Yeah, yeah, now go." Itachi told him as he took a step forward towards his father. Sasuke backed up, his eyes on his father, who was now standing up and glaring at him. When he was sure he was far enough away, he turned around to come face to face with a teary eyed Sakura.
"Sakura, what's wrong?" He asked her and immediately regretted saying it when he saw her eyes narrow as she glared at him.
"What's wrong? You ask me what's wrong when there's a gapping hole in your stomach?" She yelled at him and he winced.
"Sorry, but now isn't the time to talk about that. We need to figure out a place to go." Sasuke said to her. He took a step forwards so he was right in front of her.
"I'll be fine, alright? Don't worry about me." He said to her softly as he wiped away the tears that had started to fall with his right thumb. She gave a stiff nod and he smirked before kissing her forehead.
"A place to go? On Earth? There is no safe place. Not with your father alive." Angel told him and he looked at her.
"I know, but aren't there sanctuaries for angels?"
"Yeah, for angels. Not demons or devils or whatever the hell you are."
"Well, there is one that I can probably get to take them in." Sakura muttered to Angel, whose eyes widened.
"Sakura, we can't take them there. That's the only one that has been kept a secret from them. Besides I don't think she'll like demons in her sanctuary. I don't even think they can go in a sanctuary for that matter."
"They can. I know they can. You just have to invite them in. And she will take them, I know she will." Sakura said to Angel who shook her head and sighed.
"And what happens if she don't? They'll be stuck."
"We'll be stuck because if there not allowed in than I'm not going in."
"Alright, Alright. We'll take them there. Get Itachi so we can transport." Angel told her with a sigh as she rubbed the bridge of her nose. Sakura nodded and turned around, only to hit Sasuke's chest.
"I'll get him. You stay here." He told her as he turned around and walked towards Itachi and his father who had their swords locked together, creating an X. Itachi had a long cut going across his stomach and the back of his head was smashed open from hitting the wall when his father had punch him. He also had other minor cuts and bruise on his face and arms.
The only wound his father had was four shallow cuts on his left cheek where Itachi's claws had grazed him. Sasuke sighed as he took his hand off his wound. He took a deep breath before disappearing, only to reappear behind his father. In one quick motion he slid his claws over the back of his father's head.
Fugaku roared in pain and with raw strength, pushed Itachi back, and swung behind him with his sword, only to hit nothing. Sasuke had disappeared once more, reappearing behind his father as he turned. He gave him a hard kick in his back, making him shoot forward and hit the wall, head first.
"Let's go." Itachi said from behind Sasuke, who nodded. The two backed up as fast as they could without falling and taking their eyes off there father. When they reached Angel and Sakura, they quickly turned around to face them.
"Take our hands." Sakura told them and they complied. Sasuke held Sakura's left hand in his right, Itachi held his left, Itachi held Angel's right hand in his left and Angel had Sakura's right hand in her left.
"Ready? Alright close your eyes." The two did as was told and closed their eyes. They heard their father yell in fury and where about to let go of the girls hands, when they gripped their hands tighter.
"Don't let go." Sakura said to them and they nodded, their eyes still closed.
"Alright, you can open you eyes." Angel told them and they did. They stood twenty yards from a large white castle shaped building. There was a large flight of stone stairs leading into the building. A forest surrounded them.
"Alright, you guys stay here and me and Sakura will go inside to tell the owner of the sanctuary to allow you guys to come in."
"You go, I'll stay out here with them." Sakura told Angel, who was about to protest, when she saw Sakura's glare.
"Fine. I'll be right back." She said as she began to climb the stairs.
Sakura turned around to face the two Uchihas. She looked at Sasuke, than at Itachi, her eyes scanning their bodies, as she calculated how serious there wounds were.
"What are you doing?" Sasuke asked, not at all pleased that she was looking his brother over.
"I'm trying to figure out the seriousness of your wounds." She told him and he nodded, "Itachi that cut across your stomach is deep. It goes half way threw your body. And from what I saw the one on the back of your head isn't deep but wide. I have a feeling that you skull is once again cracked. Not as bad as last time though. And Sasuke, I'm sure you already know that, that hole in your stomach is fatal. To tell you the truth I'm surprised both of you are still standing."
Sasuke snorted, "I'm a demon, and the son of the devil, it takes a lot more than this to put me down." Itachi nodded in agreement.
Sakura rolled her eyes. 'Men.'
"Alright, but I don't know how were going to get those treated. Angels can't heal demons. Your just going to have to let it heal on it's own."
"We'll be fine. It'll only take a few days." Sasuke told her and she nodded.
"Sakura Haruno." A angry female voice from behind her said. She turned around to see her a blonde haired, bronze eyed woman.
"Tsunade-sensei." Sakura greeted nervously.
"First of all Sakura, no sensei, second care to tell me why there are demons in front of my house?"
"Can we talk about it in inside?" Sakura asked with a nervous smile.
Tsunade looked over Itachi and Sasuke carefully.
"They're the devils sons."
"And you want me to allow them to stay here?"
"You have some explaining to do." Tsunade said with a sigh, still eyeing the two.
"They better behave."
"They will. Don't worry." Sakura reassured her as they began to climb the stairs.
"So, care to tell me, what you have been up to these passed few months I haven't heard from you?"
"I see and what exactly does a lot mean?"
"Can I tell you when we get inside? I'm actually pretty tired." Sakura asked her and she nodded.
"Sure. So, you two," Itachi and Sasuke both looked at her, "What are you doing associating yourself with angels? I'm sure daddy wouldn't approve."
Sasuke eyes narrowed as they once again tinted red. Itachi put a hand on his shoulder to tell him to relax.
"He doesn't." Sakura told her and Tsunade looked at her.
"How do you know that?"
"We had a run in with him just a few minutes ago. That's how they got those wounds."
"He wasn't happy at all." Sakura said to her.
"And he attacked his sons…why? I thought he'd kill you first."
"He was ready to."
"And what stopped him?"
"Them." Sakura said pointing to Sasuke and Itachi.
"And why would they go against their father to save you?" Tsunade asked, her eyes narrowed as she looked at Sakura.
"Because she's my mate."
"And I am in her debt." The two said as they spoke up.
"Mate? Debt? Sakura what the hell have you been doing?" Tsunade yelled as they reached the doors to the building.
"I told you, a lot."
"No doubt. Now go sit in the living room while I go to the kitchen and get some tea and food." Tsunade said as they entered the castle.
They were in a large room with stairs going up to the other floors in front of them and a door on each side of the room. Sakura nodded to her and walked towards the right with Sasuke and Itachi behind her. The living room was also very large, having four leather couches in a square, with a medium sized white marble coffee table in the middle. There were two fireplaces, one on the right wall and one on the left.
The minute they entered the living room they heard voices and saw people sitting on the couches. There were three girls including Angel and three boys.
The first male stood at six foot three with spiky blonde hair, and blue eyes. Three whisker like scars were on each of his cheek.
The second male stood at six foot one with long dark brown hair, and white eyes.
The third male stood at six foot with dark brown hair that was pulled back in a pony tail and brown eyes.
The first female was five foot six with dark blue hair and lavender eyes.
The second female was at five foot six with brown hair that was put up in two buns and hazel eyes.
The last female was five foot five with blonde hair that was put up in a pony tail and bright blue eyes.
"Sakura." Angel said as she saw her, causing all talking to stop and everyone to look at the three. Itachi's, Sasuke's and the boys eyes widened as they saw each other.
"YOU!!!" The boys all screamed at each other while the girls looked at them in confusion.
