A.N. Hello, everyone!! I'm back with a new fan-fic! I watched this really cute romantic comedy (A Lot Like Love, starring Ashton Kutcher and Amanda Peet) the other day and I was simply inspired.
Only the basic plot of this fan-fic will be based on the movie, I cannot simply replace Ashton Kutcher with Uchiha Sasuke in the dialogue, it just doesn't work (Besides, I can't have Uchiha Sasuke selling diapers. That's just not right). Furthermore, I'll add in my own twists to make it a very interesting SasuSaku. I'm going to have a lot of fun SasuSaku-fying! This is an AU future-fic, Sasuke is 20 years old, new to the world of business, and Sakura is 18, fresh out of high school. It is set six years in the past and about every few chapters there will be a time-skip until we reach the present.
So, I hope you like it! This is only a short chapter, like a small taste of what is to come, I don't want to start out with a full-blown GARGANTUAN chapter because I have other fics to update, so please review and tell me if I should continue or not. Thanks! I hope you enjoy it!

Chapter One: Incompatible
6 years ago
They made a bet at around 2'o clock in the afternoon at a bar
6 years ago
He met her
And she met him
The pink-haired girl opened her purse and took out a handheld mirror, while the Mercedes Benz moved towards the airport. She fixed her short, curled hair into a ponytail with a white ribbon. She was your typical bubbly, cheerful and stubborn 18 year old girl, fresh out of high school. Sakura put away her mirror and smiled when she looked out the window to see that they had pulled up to a few stairs, that being the only thing standing between her and the actual airport terminal. In a couple of hours she'd be with her parents and a few weeks later she would be on her way to medical school. She was brought out of her thoughts by her companion, who she couldn't stand at the moment.
"I'll get your suitcase, you just stand out there and look pretty," spoke her companion/driver/A lot of things. He was of Sakura's age and she had known him since 8th grade. Sakura pouted and crossed her arms.
"I find that insulting. Are you implying that I can't do anything for myself?" argued Sakura calmly.
"No, I'm implying that you can't possibly carry your suitcase up the stairs," said the man. He stepped out of the car and opened the back door to get out her suitcase.
"Fine," replied Sakura. She slung her purse on her shoulder and stepped out of the car with an innocent elegance that is rarely seen these days. She stood a few feet away from the car as the dark-man approached with a pink suitcase and he set it down.
"Come on, don't leave mad. That's nothing to be mad about. Some of my friends agreed that you were useless and I—" Sakura's eyes widened.
"Who called me useless?" questioned Sakura. Her green eyes narrowed, she knew something was bound to go wrong today. It was a Thursday, something always went wrong on a Thursday.
"One of my friends,"
"And you can still call him a friend after he said that about me?"
"It's not like I said it,"
"…fine. I forgive you," said Sakura stubbornly. She pouted and was suddenly embraced by strong arms. The young man started trailing kisses from her cheek towards her neck. Sakura giggled, maybe Thursdays weren't so bad after all.
"Hiroshi-kun! Stop it! We're in a public place," pleaded Sakura. Hiroshi smirked and soon he pressed his lips to hers. Sakura couldn't help but let this one slide, she wouldn't see him for a few months, better make this last meeting special. Sakura was oblivious to the hand moving towards her lower back until she felt a small squeeze. She gasped and stepped away from Hiroshi.
"W-what were you doing?" questioned Sakura. Hiroshi tried to put his arms around Sakura's lower back again.
"Nothing, I was just—" Sakura moved away again and slapped his arm.
"You do not have my permission to touch me like that!"
"Why can't I?"
"No! You can't just touch me like that. We've only been going out for a month!"
"Ryo and his girl have gone all the way already! And they've been going out for one week,"
"I'm your boyfriend, aren't I?" Sakura saw a dark-haired man, a little older than herself, walking with a bottle of water. She walked over to him and took the bottle, not even noticing the glare he gave her. Sakura smiled mockingly and dumped the contents of the bottle onto Hiroshi. The dark-haired continued walking and smirked. Hiroshi glared at Sakura.
"That fact may have been true a few minutes ago. We're done, Hiroshi. Finished," Sakura picked up her suitcase and walked up the steps. She managed to hear Hiroshi shout something before the terminal doors closed.
"I agreed with them, Sakura! I tried to use you, but it proved to be waste! You are useless!" Sakura controlled her temper. If she so much as glanced back, that would have meant that Hiroshi won. That he succeeded in making her feel less, but that wasn't going to happen. She would keep her head held up high and walk away with the dignity she had left. Why did she even go out with that idiot?
"Because we've liked him since junior year and he seemed nice. He finally asks us out…and all he wanted was a quick fuck. Stupid Hiroshi! I'm glad we wasted his time! He tried to use us!" thought Inner Sakura.
"I thought I got rid of you two months ago. I was sure Hiroshi was a good guy…but we turned out to be incompatible," thought Sakura.
"Well, I'm back! I couldn't say anything bad about Hiroshi until you broke up with him! And dang, girl! I couldn't have done it better myself!"
"Okay, maybe I could've…but you dumped water on him! You sure showed him! And did you see the guy who you took the water bottle from? He was H-O-T-T! HOTT!"
"Whatever…I didn't even notice his looks, I just saw his bottle and took it. That was rude of me…I shouldn't have done it," Sakura stood in line for the metal detector and sighed. It was going to be a while.
"…but he had the prettiest onyx eyes I had ever seen…even prettier than Hiroshi's,"
"…don't let out your anger on a girl; remember what happened the last two times? First, Ami…then, Rini—" teased Naruto. Sasuke rolled his eyes.
"Bunch of bitches. I don't even remember their names and I was the one in the bathroom with them," countered Sasuke. Naruto laughed and pulled the car up to the airport terminal.
"Have fun, Sasuke-teme! Stay away from the airplane's bathroom! Don't get in a fight with Itachi!" Sasuke bonked Naruto on the head and stepped out of the car. It was around seven in the morning, he was early for his flight to New York. His parents were making him visit his brother, Itachi, so he could learn the family trade. Business. Right now, Sasuke was on a break from the business university he attended.
"See you in a few days, dobe," replied Sasuke. He stepped out of the car in his dark jeans, white dress shirt and black leather jacket. He was certainly a super hot tamale. Sasuke grabbed his water bottle and started walking towards the terminal, when he spotted a girl and a boy who seemed to be arguing.
"So?" questioned the girl stubbornly. She had pink hair tied in a pony tail. She seemed out of place in the stiff surroundings of the terminal with her tan and pink plaid skirt, pink sweater and silver ballet flats. Too delicate. Incompatible with the surroundings.
"I'm your boyfriend, aren't I?" That's when the girl turned to him and walked over. He glared. His onyx and her emerald met for a split second. Before Sasuke knew it, the water bottle had been taken out of his hands and sprayed all over the boy. He smirked at the sight; he certainly didn't see that one coming.
"What a temper for such a short girl," thought Sasuke amusedly.
"That fact may have been true a few minutes ago. We're done, Hiroshi. Finished," the girl huffed. She grabbed her suitcase and walked inside the terminal. The boy known as Hiroshi shouted something before the girl entered the terminal doors.
"I agreed with them, Sakura! I tried to use you, but it proved to be waste! You are useless!"
Ouch. Sasuke didn't see that one coming either, but he wasn't getting into anyone's business besides the fact that he really didn't care. He ran a hand through his raven locks and entered the terminal, oblivious to the blonde that had witnessed the sight. Naruto smiled and started to drive away.
"Only a few minutes and Sasuke's already getting himself into trouble," thought Naruto.
Preview For Next Chapter:
"Who are you? My mother?"
"I don't know. When you look at me, do you see your mother?"
"…I see my grandmother,"
"You know, kissing a smoker is the same as licking an ashtray. Do you by any chance carry any Listerine?"
"Have you ever licked an ashtray?"
"Sorry, you're not my type. I don't go for guys who make out with random girls in the bathroom of an airplane for no apparent reason,"
"Stop lying, you're horrible at it,"
A.N. Well, there you have it! It's really short because I want people's opinion before outdoing myself and typing up a GARGANTUAN chapter. I hoped you all liked it! Tell me what you loved, liked, and didn't like so much. Don't complain about the chapter length, because it'll be longer next time. I can assure you. Just check out my other stories…see? I told you!
I'll accept flames, because I figure that whoever is typing them up is entitled to their opinion…even if it'll hurt. So yeah, everyone is welcome to review. Should I continue? Yes? No? Tell me what you think.
Well, I had fun writing this first chapter. Now I shall hurry and try to update my other story "A Day In The Life Of Team 7" before you all Rasengan and/or Chidori my ass…hehe. Until next time! Please review!
