Hi! So this is the first chapter of Date Night. I hope you like it!
And, by the way, I sadly don't own Naruto.
Sakura heard her doorbell ring, but before she went to go get it, she took one last look in in the mirror. She was dressed in a short blue jean skirt and a red tee-shirt. She had spent all yesterday with Ino, raiding her closet, trying to find the perfect outfit. She smoothed out her shirt one more time, and finally satisfied, she went to get the door. She opened it and there stood Sasuke. He was dressed in a black sweater and blue jeans. Sakura felt her heart flutter just looking at him. 'Kami, he's so hot,' she thought.
"Ready," he asked her.
"One sec," she told him, running into her living room and getting her small purse. She came back. "Yep," she said, closing her door behind her.
They began walking down the street and Sakura felt Sasuke seek out her hand, holding it. She glanced down at their hands, then up at him and saw him starring straight ahead. She looked back down at her feet, blushing. She didn't know if she was ever going to get used to them doing small things like this. It felt so right though. The way her small hand fit perfectly in his. Sakura'a worst fear was that she was going to wake up any second, all of this being a dream.
They reached the small restaurant and walked in. Sakura looked around and saw it was full of other couples on dates too. They sat down at a table and a waitress came by. "What can I get ya to drink?" she asked.
Sakura looked up to tell her what she wanted but stopped. The woman wasn't even looking at her. Instead, all of her attention was on Sasuke, giving him a lustful look. Sakura felt a strange feeling rush through her. "Water," Sasuke ordered, not even paying the girl any mind.
Sakura opened her mouth to order but she was cut off by the waitress asking Sasuke flirtatiously while flipping her hair, "Don't you want anything else besides water?" 'Like me?' was what Sakura was sure the waitress was thinking.
Sakura watched as Sasuke sent the girl a death glare. "No."
Sakura smirked. 'Ha ha! In your face!' she thought. Out loud she asked sweetly, "Pepsi please?"
The waitress walked away, nodding. Sakura and Sasuke began talking about an upcoming mission they had. Well, mostly Sakura talked while Sasuke hned. The waitress came back, setting their drinks down, and asked what they wanted to eat. Sakura watched as she once again, outrageously flirted with Sasuke. It seemed one of Sasuke's death glares wasn't enough to put her down. Under the table, Sakura clenched her hands into fists. She really felt like laying one of her super punches in the waitress's face.
The waitress walked away again with their orders and Sakura excused herself to go to the restroom. She shut herself in one of the stalls and leaned against the door. 'Calm down,' she told herself. 'You don't need to pummel her.' She stood there a couple more seconds, taking deep breaths, when she heard two laughing girls enter the restroom.
"Did you see that hotty?" she heard one girl say.
"Yeah!" the other girl said giggling. "He's so cute!"
Sakura heard the popping sound of a cap being taken of a tube of lipstick. "But can you believe who he's here with?"
"Oh I know!" the second girl said agreeing. "That girl with the pink hair. She's so ugly! I can't believe someone like him would go out with her."
'Are they talking about me and Sasuke,' Sakura wondered. 'Of course they are. It's not like there's another girl with pink hair out there.' She listened as they made more nasty remarks about her.
"She did a terrible job dying her hair too," the first girl said. "It's so obvious it's fake."
With that last comment, Sakura had had it. She opened the stall door stomping out. She saw the two girls, standing in front of the mirror checking their makeup and hair. One of the girls saw Sakura in the mirror and nudged her friend. Sakura walked to the sink, turning on the water and began to wash her hands. Both girls watched her nervously out of the corner of their eyes.
"You know," Sakura said suddenly shutting off the water. "Just because you came with ugly dates doesn't mean you need to take it out on me." Sakura grabbed a paper towel to dry her hands and faced the girls. Both of their mouths dropped open and their eyes bulged in shock. Sakura smirked and walked past them, dropping the paper towel in the garbage. "By the way, this is my real hair color," she told them. Then she was gone, walking out the door.
She walked towards her table and saw Sasuke sitting there, waiting for her. She noticed something else too. All the girls who were sitting close to their table were checking Sasuke out. She wished that she could shout at all of them to stop. She sat down across from Sasuke and smiled at him instead. He smirked back at her.
'That's right. He picked me to go out with. There's no reason to be jealous,' Sakura thought, but she felt herself beginning to have doubts. She looked around at the other girls. 'Sasuke could have any girl he wants,' she thought. 'Why would he choose me when he can have anyone of them?'
She kept thinking that all through dinner and when they started walking home too. She felt Sasuke grab her hand again but she wasn't really paying attention. She was too lost in thought. She would have walked right past her apartment if it hadn't been for Sasuke pulling on her hand, making her come to a stop.
"Sorry," she said, giving him a fake smile while digging out her keys of her purse. She put it in the lock and opened her door. She turned back to him to tell him that she had a good time but was cut of by Sasuke.
"What's wrong?" he asked.
"Nothing," she lied, giving him the fake smile again.
He glared at her. He could tell she was lying. She was like an open book to him. "Sakura," he warned.
She dropped the phony smile and looked down at her feet, embarrassed. "Sasuke…why did you choose me to be your girlfriend?" she mumbled out.
"Where did this come from?" Sasuke asked.
"No where," she said defensively, looking up at him. "I just wondered, that's all. Plus all those dumb girls at the restaurant kept checking you out and," She hadn't meant to say that last part out loud. 'I have got to stop letting things slip out like that,' she thought.
"Are you jealous?" Sasuke asked, smirking while moving his face closer to hers.
She felt her whole face go hot with a blush. "I am not!" she lied. "Just answer the question! Why did you choose me over all the other girls?"
Sasuke dropped his smirk and his face got really serious. "Because," he said leaning in even more so now that their faces were inches apart. "They're not you." Then she felt him kiss her forehead. she looked up at him in surprise. "I'll call you later," he told her, and then he was walking away.
Sakura watched him go. She was a little miffed that he hadn't given her more of an answer, but mostly, she was happy with it. She walked into her apartment and into her bedroom. She picked up her phone and plopped down on the bed, entering Ino's phone number. She had promised to call her after she got home from her date to tell her all the juicy details.
