Because I felt like writing something light and sweet... And because I've read to many shoujo high school manga... And because I wanted to try something that looked a little bit high school-ish I guess... Change is good every now and then... Right?
Disclaimer: I just read manga, I'm not very good at drawing things from the top of my head so that's why I decided to write about them and... (so on and on)
"Oh kami-sama! I can't believe this!" Ino screamed loudly and Sakura blushed embarrassed.
"Don't scream, Ino!" she replied and slammed her hand over her best friend's mouth.
"But he's going to be tutored, by YOU!" she yelled again, after she'd slapped Sakura's hand away forcefully. The pink-haired girl was still rubbing her painful hand while muttering: "It's not such a big deal." Then she looked at the blonde girl, who was about to start yelling again by the looks of it and added: "Could you please keep it down?"
"But this is huge!" she hissed, nearly spitting in Sakura's face. Said girl looked disgusted and stepped aside. "I mean, he used to be your crush!" Her eyes were widened and about to pop out, at least, that's what one would assume by the looking at the girl. She just ignored Sakura's glare, but did notice her blush though. "That's exactly why they haven't asked you for this," she replied.
"Che, and because I'm not our year's number one student," she retorted with a wink.
"Nerd!" some random guys yelled while passing by. Ino turned around and stuck her tongue out.
"Idioooots!" she yelled after them. "Seriously Sakura, you should be more assertive, or at least loosen up! How are you going to tutor Sasuke-kun with your attitude?" she shook her head. "Really now, sometimes you really make me worry about you."
Her friend looked down and sighed.
"So when are you going to start?" Ino whispered excited.
Sakura closed her locker and opened her mouth, about to answer the question, when someone butted in. "Now," a voice replied instead of her.
Uchiha Sasuke was leaning against the lockers and looked utterly annoyed.
Ino looked on the verge of squealing though and that's why Sakura pushed her quickly and not too softly away.
"See you tomorrow, Ino!" she said rapidly and laughed nervously. She turned to the number one bishounen of their school. "I'm sorry about her," she smiled awkwardly, feeling very uncomfortable with the situation.
"Che," he replied. "Let's go." Then he walked away, not paying further attention to the flabbergasted girl.
Quickly, Sakura picked up his pace. Quietly, she followed him to his house, hunted by quite an amount of whispers. Sakura looked down, so her bangs were covering her eyes. She didn't feel at ease at all. Sasuke, apparently used to this, couldn't care less and didn't do anything to make her feel any more comfortable.
"We're there," he said, being the first thing he'd said to her during the time they'd been walking home.
Carelessly, he threw his bag away, pulled his jacket out and placed it on the couch, loosened his tie and unbuttoned half his shirt. Then he got himself some juice and sat down. He didn't even ask Sakura if she'd like a drink.
"Sit down," he ordered and she obeyed, which made him smirk.
"Uhm," Sakura started and got her books out of her bag. "With what subject would you like to start, Sasuke-kun?" she asked quietly.
"None," he replied annoyed, clearly not interested in anything she had to say.
"But your grades are dropping and your parents asked me to tutor you," she replied startled.
"I really don't care," he shrugged. He drank a little bit of his juice and just stared at the ceiling. She could almost sense his annoyance.
"Then why am I here…" she asked confused and slightly scared.
"You're here to show my parents my goodwill," he told her. Sasuke hadn't even looked at her once. Therefore, she didn't really feel welcome.
"Sorry, but I can't agree with that. As your tutor, I'm here to make sure that your grades will improve and therefore, we have to study," she replied determined, remembering Ino's words of being more assertive. "Now, where can we study quietly so you won't be distracted," she asked more self-assured than she felt at the moment. She could only hope that he wouldn't disagree.
Suddenly, he rose to his feet though and in one step, he was standing right in front of the pink-haired girl.
"Listen up," he said in a low voice, gazing at her frightened expression. "I don't care about my grades and I don't care about you. Don't pretend like you care about my grades because we both know that you are just here because you want me in your pants," he ended in an annoyed hiss.
Sakura paled and slapped him in his face all of a sudden. "That's the most disgusting thing I've ever heard! Don't you dare to think of me so lowly. As if I would be once of those mindless maniacs who call themselves your fans!" she shouted. "And as for being your tutor: I do care about your grades, now hurry up and get your books. We're going to study."
Flushed, she picked up her books from the floor, where they had been dropped as Sasuke had made his move and she swung her bag over her shoulder, waiting for him to move.
Sasuke let out a long sigh and ran his hand through his hair. "Alright," he agreed sourly.
He got his books from his bookcase and led her to his room. "Let's study," he sighed and opened his math book.
"Good," Sakura smiled contently and started explaining. She felt happy with the way she had reacted and how she didn't let him have it his way.
About an hour later, Sakura leaned back in her chair and said: "Let's take a break." She stretched herself and sighed.
"Want anything to drink?" The raven-haired boy asked his tutor blankly.
"Do you have tea?" she asked and closed her eyes.
"Yeah. Be right back," he replied shortly and left the room, leaving Sakura and their books alone.
Sakura opened her jade eyes and looked around his room for the first time since she'd gotten here. It looked rather plain. Nothing special, no dirty books lying across the room like she'd imagined. Actually, the room looked incredibly neat. It was even tidier than her own.
She yawned by the sight of his bed. It had been early that morning and rather late last night, since she had stayed up late to study. Falling asleep on a soft bed seemed so tempting all of a sudden…How much longer will he stay away, she wondered. If she acted really fast, she could let her sour muscles have a little rest and comfort since she clearly had slept in an awkward position last night.
With a quick glance towards the door, she decided to lay down fast and get up immediately again. Since the bed appeared to be the only thing that was a bit messy, he surely wouldn't notice, right?
Quickly, she got up and lay down on his bed, telling herself that if it wasn't for her lack of sleep, she would never have done such a thing.
As soon as her head hit the pillow though, she felt so sleepy… Sasuke's pillow was drenched in his scent and it was entering her nose. It only took her seconds to fall asleep.
So cozy… so warm… comfortable… strong arms… Wait, Sakura opened her eyes and was in shock. Uchiha Sasuke was staring at her with his deep onyx eyes. The eyes, as rumor had it, which would turn red when he got angry. Quickly, she tried to sit up, but he pinned her down.
"You don't want me in your pants, huh," he whispered hoarsely.
"N-No, I-I… T-This… it's all… misunderstanding! Huge misunderstanding," she stuttered. There was no way she could talk herself out of this.
"You're not just another fangirl, right?" he repeated her words from before oh so sarcastically.
"N-No, you've got it all wrong!" she cried in despair.
"I've got it all wrong?" he replied sarcastically.
She only wanted him to look away. It was like those eyes were piercing her.
"I really am not one of your fangirls! Please, listen to me!" she tried again, feeling very self-consciousness at the moment.
"I-I-I…" she started and took a deep breath at his raised eyebrows. She inhaled his scent and breathed out unsteadily. His scent was making her dizzy. "I fell asleep very late last night. I stayed up all night to study and prepare for today. This morning, I had to get up very early and that's why I couldn't resist such a comfortable looking bed! But I was only going to lay down and get up again, yet I must've been more tired than I'd expected. I apologize!" she finished and shut her eyes tightly, afraid of what might come. As he didn't reply, she opened her eyes carefully and saw him still staring at her.
"Sa-Sasuke-kun?" she asked slightly scared. Yet she couldn't help but wonder if his eyes would indeed color red.
"And you honestly didn't have any other intentions?" he asked, more gentle now. That, or her mind was playing tricks on her.
"No! honestly! I'm not interested in you!" she replied quickly. Shaking her head furiously, hoping that his eyes would focus on something else but her.
"Is that so?" he asked while rising an eyebrow.
"Yes!" she replied eagerly. It seemed like he believed her, right?
Somehow though, his lips seemed to close the space between them and Sakura's eyes widened. "Wait, what are you doing?!"
Then his lips came down upon hers and she forgot everything. Her tiredness seemed to dissolve and turn into a content feeling of laziness. Naturally, her hands slid up to his head and her fingers entangled themselves in his hair.
A content sigh escaped her lips before she realized what she was doing.
"No, we can't do this!" she pushed him away and leaped off the bed. "I'm not like them! We have to study so your grades will get up!"
Sakura seated herself behind his desk in panic and tried to steady her breath.
"Are you sure?" he asked curiously and it sounded so tempting. She was waging them: studying with her former crush or making out with her former crush. Deep inside her mind, she could hear Ino scream already when she would tell her that she didn't take the opportunity. She glanced over to him and saw him sitting, leaned back on his bed, his hair oh so messy because of the look her fingers had created. Sakura blushed heavily, and suddenly, she realized what they'd been actually doing.
"Oh!" she whispered quietly. Sasuke had seated himself besides her again, realizing that she wouldn't come over to him, and looked at her. "What?"
"Just now… This may sound stupid, but… just now was my first kiss…" she murmured embarrassed, since it wouldn't be a big deal to him.
"Oh," he replied blankly. "Let's get back to work," he added and opened his textbook.
"Okay," she whispered quietly but felt hurt. Maybe, it wasn't a big deal to him, but to her it definitely was. Horrified, she could feel a tear rolling down her cheek, slowly falling on the sheet in front of her.
Disturbed, Sasuke looked over to her and saw the wet spot on the further spotless sheet. He frowned. "What's wrong?"
Sakura didn't answer, but another tear fell down and was soon followed by another one.
Sasuke stretched out his hand to brush her hair out of her face. Her face showed moist eyes and tears rolling down her cheeks, tracing wet lines across her face. He inched closer and looked at her. "What's wrong?" he repeated after his first question.
"It's just that… I'm sorry to bother you…" She didn't dare looking at him directly. Her throat hurt because of the tears she was trying to hold back.
"Girl thing?" he asked and she finally looked up and gave him a watery smile.
"Guess so… I didn't want my first kiss to be random. It had to be given by the guy who loved me and cared for me, whom I really liked," she sighed and brushed away her tears.
"Che, good thing I kissed you first. You wouldn't have your first kiss ever otherwise. Those are just girly fantasies. Those things never happen in real life," he shrugged and looked the other way. Sasuke folded his hands behind his head. "You don't even like me one bit?"
Sakura turned beet red. "Not anymore," she replied embarrassed. "I figured with all the attention you are getting all the time, you must either be conceited and selfish, or not interested in girls. But," she added rather sarcastically, "since you've proven the latter to be wrong. I guess I should go with my first theory."
"Or maybe, I'm just not interested in all those girls," he replied, narrowing his eyes at the insult.
"Oh, come on! We both know that every single girl in our school would kill to be in my position at this very moment," she cried out.
"If you hat me that much, then why are you here?" he replied annoyed.
"I don't hate you! I just simply cannot imagine that you would not be interested in one of those pretty and cute girls from school!"
"Maybe I am…" he said and shrugged.
"But you just said-," she protested.
"But maybe, she isn't interested in me," he cut her off, staring at his textbook.
"No way!" Sakura laughed.
The Uchiha boy narrowed his eyes again and gazed at her. Her laugh stopped immediately. "Sorry, I didn't mean to ridicule you…" she said hastily.
"No? Wait until you heard this then," he replied in a dangerously low tone. "The Uchiha prodigy, who couldn't get to the girl he liked, had to drop his grades on purpose, so she, who's the number one student in our year, could come to tutor him," he whispered.
Sakura swallowed hard and replied quietly: "And she didn't show up, so that's why I'm here now?"
Annoyed, Sasuke flicked his fingers against her forehead. "For the smartest girl in our year, you're pretty dense, you know that?"
"I… I am?" she replied anxiously.
Sasuke arched an
eyebrow while he was watching the girl besides him. Then he smirked
and leaned in. "You surely are."
Slowly, Sakura closed her eyes and sighed. Her heart was almost beating out of her chest.
Her skin was tingling where Sasuke's hands were slowly moving up to her face.
"You know," he whispered, tickling her face with his hot breath. "I like the fact that your first kiss was mine." He snickered. "But I'm sorry for the way it turned out… Please let me make up for that," he whispered seductively while nibbling on her lower lip.
"Please do…" Sakura smiled and he did.
Please don't ask for a sequel, I might make one, just not yet.
