A/N:This is just something that popped into my head, and I decided to write it down.I've never writen an Ita/Saku story before, but I've read plenty.Anyways, please go easy on me!

Title:The Dancing Cherry Blossom

Pairing:Itachi/Sakura:)

Rating:T

Warnings:Possible sexual content

Here I am, again.Standing on this cliff where he proposed.Where Sasuke proposed.And now, as I look down to the 200 foot drop, I'm positive those words were hollow, just like his heart.A tear falls from my emerald eye, my face still impassive.

It's weak to cry.True shinobi don't show such emotions.But then again, you aren't a true shinobi, are you Sakura?

Sasuke had said that to me.When he had returned, he said I was still weak, and that I'm just a pathetic excuse for a kunoichi.Just weeks later, he proposed.I was foolish to except it, but my heart wouldn't let him go.

I need to restore my clan.And you are the only one that I might consider making my wife.I could choose someone more beautiful, like Ino or someone not so annoying like Hinata.But you are the apprentice of Tsunade, and you are one of the most intelligent kunoichi in this village.And I doubt you would say no.Sakura, marry me.

I had smiled and took the ring.He walked away and said three weeks.I moved in with him just two days after the proposal, even though my friends suggested that I shouldn't.Sasuke never even acknowledges me.But I still cook his dinners, he replies with a quiet 'thanks' and walks away.I still wash his clothes, he usually murmers something, but I never hear it.I still bandage him up and heal his wounds after a mission, he complains about the pain.I still say I love him, he doesn't even glance at me.I still stay by his side...He doesn't care about me, though.

After our wedding we are going to restore my clan.Once we get a child or children, you will take care of them and keep them healthy, I will train them since you are too weak to do it yourself, and I don't want my children to be weak like you.

Tomorrow is the wedding.But I'm afraid that I won't be there.And Sasuke will have to find somone else.Maybe some village girl.He can't marry Ino, she has Shikamaru.He can't marry Hinata, she has Naruto.He can't marry Tenten, she has Neji.I'm not really worried about that, though.But I do feel bad for the woman that will marry Sasuke.

I contemplate wether I should jump or not.I wait a few more minutes.I'm trying to think of a reason of why I should keep living for him.I don't know if I can let go of the fantasy of me and him, living happily together.I suddenly feel disgusted.Me, living happily together with Sasuke Uchiha.

I shake my head.All's he done is break my heart.My impassive face twists into a small smirk.I wonder if he thinks I would really give my life up just for him.No.I won't end my life, just because of him.He can't break me.He truely is stupid if he thinks I will.I'm too smart for his games.

I won't marry him.I don't want to see his face anymore, now.My love has turned to hate, so quickly.Only when I look back at all the things he's done to break my heart, there's so many I can't count.But he can't break my heart, you see, because it was never whole.

I'm going to start over, I'm going to become stronger.I know where I can go to get power.I've already been made an offer.By Sasuke's arch enemy.Sasuke's brother.Uchiha Itachi himself.

Your medical experties is exactly what the Akatsuki needs.I am offering you membership to the Akatsuki.I will give you a few days to consider this.But if you refuse, I will have no choice but to kill you.

I take off my hitai-ate.Would I really betray my village for Sasuke?I pull out a kunai and drag it swiftly across the leaf symbol.I've made my decision.

--------------------------

Hours pass and now it's nightfall.I'm sitting on the cliff, now.My legs dangeling over the edge.I look up at the stars, my eyes glistening with excitement.He'll be here, shortly.I've been thinking about my village ever since I made my decision.I will be betraying everyone I know and love.And I'll never be able to go back.

Just a few minutes pass, and I can feel his powerful chakra behind me.I'm startled and I almost jump."Have you made your decision?"He asks.I pull myself up and face him."Yes, I have.I accept your offer, Itachi-san."I say.He nods, and we're off to the Akatsuki base.
