I sat there staring at Sasori. I didn't understand why he needed to hear this all of a sudden. My voice was trapped in my throat as Sasori stared back at me. "I knew you couldn't say it," he said in a low growl. "You're leading him on."
"No," I said quickly. "I just...I..."
The door opened and I jumped looking up to see three other boys walking into the room, Itachi, Kisame, and Deidara. They stopped inside the doorway and looked at us. Kisame seemed a little disappointed, Itachi looked uncaring like he usually did, and Deidara looked a little panicked. "Why were you yelling?" Deidara asked looking at me.
"How do you know it was her, for all we know Sasori could have a girly yell," Kisame said smirking. Sasori glared at him.
"Oh shut up Kisame," Deidara snapped, glaring too before turning to look back down the aisle at me.
"It was nothing, Sasori was just being a jerk like usual," I told him, my throat hurting a little. Sasori turned his glare on me now.
"You're the one being a jerk," Sasori told me. We glared intensely at each other for a few seconds before Itachi walked between us.
"That's enough," he said. "Sasori get up, we need to get this practise started." Sasori pealed his glare away from me slowly, and stood up fallowing Itachi and Kisame over to the small stage. Deidara came over to me.
"Is anything wrong?" he asked me. I shook my head.
"No, why?" I asked him.
"Well you don't usually come up here, so I was wondering if something happened," he told him.
"Oh, well I'm just a little mad at Gaara, it's nothing really," I lied to him. It was strange. I didn't feel safe telling Deidara why I was mad at Gaara or that it actually was a big deal. In fact I hadn't really told him the truth about a lot of things. Like that I was an orphan living on my own, or that Sasuke had been the one to kill Sakura. I'd told other people, but I didn't linger on these thoughts as Deidara gave me a slight frown and went on stage to practise.
The bell range for lunch to be over and I headed with Naruto and Sasuke quickly up to class. We were going to get there as early as we could to talk to Choji for a while if he'd been ditched again. When we got to the classroom the door was open, and we entered the room happy to see Choji sitting in it already. We put our bags down at our table and went over to him. "What was Ino like when you went back to her?" I asked holding back a smirk.
"She was just really upset and then took some food from me, and Shino and her left. They`ve been ignoring me more lately. I think she either thinks I helped with the rumour, or I believe it. She isn`t talking to me now," Choji said with a frown. "Sorry, I don't think I can be of much more help." I let out a small sigh, but Naruto talked before I could say anything.
"It's ok buddy, you have a spot with us. We know you're not a bad guy," he told him smiling. Choji smiled back.
"Thanks," he said. "But I know they're plotting something big now, I just don't know what. They won't tell me."
"Its fine, we'll figure it out eventually," I told him as the bell rang for classes to start. Naruto, Sasuke and I went quickly back over to our table and sat down acting as if we'd been ignoring Choji's presence the whole time.
I walked out of the music room with Deidara, behind his friends. Deidara had decided to walk me to class. When his friends were out of earshot he looked over at me with a frown. "Are you sure nothing's wrong?" he asked me. I looked up at him with a smile.
"Yeah, it's just Gaara, it's nothing new," I told him. He looked away from me nodding.
"So what were you and Sasori talking about that got you both so mad?" he asked sounding really concerned.
"He was just being a jerk, kind of like what he was like during the band tour," I told him with a shrug, "It's really nothing to worry about." Deidara sighed.
"You know you don't have to lie to me, I want to help," he told him. "Or at least try to help." He looked and sounded a little hurt now, and I looked down at the floor biting my lip.
"I know you do, but you don't need to get involved in these things. I don't want you to get involved. If you try to help something might happen that would really hurt you," I told him in almost a whisper looking back up at him. He raised an eyebrow at me.
"What do you mean something might happen that would really hurt me?" he asked. I took a deep breath and sighed.
"There are just some things that have been happening and I don't think it would be good for you to get involved in it. I'm not really involved in it, but since Gaara's my brother I have to be involved a little. But you don't have to be," I told him. He gave me a look of confusion as we stopped outside my classroom. "Look, don't worry about it. We're figuring things out and soon it won't even matter what's going on anymore," I told him. Deidara just shook his head.
"Fine, I'll see you later then," he said turning and walking away.
"Bye..." I said just barely enough for him to hear.
Sorry guys, I think this is the worst/most rushed chapter I've ever wrote :S. I'll try to be better next time.
