Love Always Finds a Way

Chapter One


Sakura Haruno

Sakura, the Medic Nin

Sakura, his old pink-haired teammate

Sakura, his apparently ex-fan girl

This young kunoichi kept flashing into the mind of the sole survivor of the Uchiha clan, and he couldn't explain why. Maybe it was the fact that it had been two weeks since his arrival home and she hadn't come and seen him in the hospital. Maybe because Naruto told him that Sakura had become incredibly strong and beautiful. Maybe it was because he had remembered their last encounter, when he had left her on a stone bench, passed out. Maybe it was because he was falling for her. No, he's not falling for her. He immediately scratched out the last idea. Maybe he was just nervous about what would happen when he would see her again.

"Teme, are you feeling any better? The nurse said that you could leave the hospital tomorrow if you were up to it!" Naruto screamed while running into Sasuke's hospital room. Sasuke couldn't wait to get out of the hospital and go home to eat some good food; maybe some tomatoes.

"I'm feeling fine." He answered in a dull tone. Naruto's smile dulled as well.

"Sasuke, what's eating you?" Naruto always had this annoying way of knowing when Sasuke was upset.

"Hn." Sasuke's usually response.

"It's Sakura-chan, isn't it?" Sasuke never got why he had called Sakura Sakura-chan, when he was dating Hinata. Maybe it was a brother-sister thing that they had. Maybe Sakura called him Naruto-kun. That was something that Sasuke would have trouble getting used to.


"Well, I have a plan! Tomorrow, I'll invite Sakura-chan to go to Ichiraku with me, and not say that you're coming. Then, when I arrive with you, I'll say that I saw you along the way and invited you. She is never rude, so she'll just adapt to the situation and you'll be able to see her! It's perfect." Sasuke stared at Naruto. It was absolutely a perfect plan and he was in shock at how fast the dobe could have thought of it.


"Does that mean yes or no?" To answer this question, Sasuke gave a distinct nod indicating yes. "Alright Teme, I have to go. I have a date with Hinata-chan in an hour and a half. Meet me at my apartment at twelve in the afternoon tomorrow. Bye." Naruto ran out of his room as he heard a big thud come from outside his door.

"Sorry about that. Oh, hi Naruto!" This voice came from the hallway. It sounded very familiar.

"It's okay Sakura-chan! I have to go though; I'm going to be late!" That was definitely Naruto. And that means that Sakura is only outside the hallway. If he wasn't the stone-hearted bastard that he is, he would have gotten up from his bed and went to see her, but he didn't. He just sat in bed thinking about what he would say to her tomorrow. What she would say to him.

"Don't keep Hinata waiting!" Sakura screamed after him.

Suddenly he heard a knock at the door. He looked up and through the window of the door; he could see a flash of bright pink.

"Hn." He said loud enough for hear to here. Here comes the moment he has dreaded. Sasuke embraced himself for the Sasuke-kun's, the crying sob stories of her time while he was gone, and all the squealing noises he would hear from her in 1…2…3

"I have been ordered to give you a final check up Uchiha-san." Sakura said in a strong, confident voice. This was unlike the shaky one he had heard a few years ago. And Uchiha-san? What the hell was that? No Sasuke-kun, no kisses, no declarations of love, no sad stories! What was going on?

"Hn." Sasuke responded as Sakura came closer to him with a stethoscope in her hand. Sasuke took this time to notice how beautiful Sakura had become since he had left three years ago. Her hair fell in a curly pink mess right above her elbow. A side bang covered her now regular sized forehead. The nurse outfit she was wearing hugged every curve she had perfectly. She was beautiful, everything about her.

Sasuke felt her warm touch on his chest as she placed the stethoscope on it to check is breathing. Much to Sasuke's displeasure, the hand quickly retreated from Sasuke well developed chest and went to write something on the clipboard that she was holding.

Sakura had gone through the regular procedures of a physical and was at the last part. She placed the thermometer in his mouth. Sasuke took this moment to make eye contact with her. Maybe Tsunade have performed some sort of forbidden jutsu to make her forget who he was. Yeah, that must be it. Maybe if she looks into his eyes, she'll remember him. His obsidian eyes met with her emerald ones and nothing happened. She didn't flinch; she just kept his gaze, confident and cool.

She did have to break the gaze when she took the thermometer out of his mouth and looked at it, then wrote something down on a clipboard.

"You are in good physical condition and may depart from the hospital tomorrow. Good day." Sakura said in the same self-assured voice she had used before. With that, she had walked out of the room leaving an astonished Uchiha.

What had happened to her?
