The Seven Sins
Epilogue: The Eighth Sin.
Disc: Lalala, I still can't hearrrr you! Haha. Eight chapters later and I still don't own NARUTO or The Seven Sins! (How on Earth can you own a sin, anyway?)
Sakura blinked, looking over at Sai, still wondering what the hell she was supposed to think. His sin? Surely it couldn't be lust… the way he dressed though, suggested otherwise. His belly shirt allowed his taut abs to show, pale skin shining in the dim lighting of the ex-brothel.
Whoa, what the hell? Maybe envy was the wrong sin, maybe I should've had lust!
She was, after all, half on top of Sasuke and half on top of her own chair. And hey, was that Naruto's hair her hand was tangled in? Oh snap.
Across the table she could see Ino whispering to Shikamaru, and Chouji downing some more sake. Sai was still sitting there blankly, and Naruto opened his mouth finally to relieve some of the tension, "Uhm… How about…"
Sakura didn't catch what Naruto guessed, just noticed Sai flash a smile and shake his head. Naruto made a noise of displeasure before curling into her side. Sasuke had an arm wrapped around her and was hissing something at Naruto from behind her but she just couldn't focus.
"Uh, envy?" Sakura guessed, wincing.
"No," Sai answered almost smugly, flashing her another smile.
She swore she could hear a low growl come from Sasuke's throat.
Chouji opened his mouth to speak but Ino looked thoughtful, "What about wrath?" She asked, looking up at Sai, "It's the only one left, and you've seemed sort of, dejected lately."
Startled, Sai nodded, "You have it right, Beautiful."
At this, Shikamaru stirred, one of his arms wrapping around Ino's stomach, "Who's beautiful?"
"I am," Ino supplied with a grin, kissing his eyelid, "Duhh!"
Sakura rolled her eyes, finally falling all the way off her chair.
"Owie," She mumbled, her hand rubbing her bruised backside.
"OH, SAKURA-CHAN! ARE YOU OKAY!?" Naruto's mouth was right by her ear, and his voice was loud and she was tired and oh- was that Sasuke yelling at him for being such a bone-head?
"You're too damn loud," The Uchiha was hissing at him with a glare, "She's fine, she just fell off her chair, calm down, idiot."
"Shut up, Teme. You're just mad that you didn't get to ask her if she was okay first!"
"You know what, Dead Last?"
He didn't finish, instead dove over top of Sakura at Naruto and tackled him to the ground. The bartender looked up from behind the counter but made no move to stop them, just continued to wipe the deserted bar down.
Chouji was up, watching the fight, vigorously stuffing cookies into his mouth with a look of curiousity painted onto his face as he chewed.
Ino had dragged herself up off Shikamaru's lap, commanding Sai to break them apart, ("They're your teammates, after all!") and shoving him towards the wrestling pair. He didn't get far though because Sakura stood up, yanked them ferociously apart, dropped them on the ground and then staggered her way out of the bar.
Ino stood over the two dazed boys with her hands on her hips, "Well, you're going to go after her, aren't you?"
The boys stared at her for a moment before scrambling up off the floor and jetting out of the bar. Ino laughed to herself and Shikamaru came up beside her, leaning against her.
Sai waved goodbye as he headed out of the bar, followed closely by Chouji, who yelled something about going to see if his favorite 24/7 BBQ House was serving ribs tonight.
Shikamaru pulled the blonde girl to him with a small smile, "Troublesome. Let's go home."
"Mmkay," She slurred slightly, flashing him a blinding smile. She took a step forward but faltered, "Shika-kun?"
"Will you hold my hair?"
"Will you hold my hair?"
Shikamaru looked at her with a frown, "Ino, I don't understan--"
And then she threw up at his feet.
"Sakura-chan, wait!" Naruto shoved his foot in between her door and the frame, halting it in its descent to close.
"Naruto, move your god damn foot," Sakura growled.
"What did you say to me?"
"I said no, Sakura-chan!"
"Are you aware I could shatter all the bones in your foot? Move it, now."
"Let us in, Sakura."
"Sasuke, go away and take Naruto with you."
"How about I throw the dobe into the river and then you let me in?"
Sasuke's comment was left with silence so Naruto decided to push on the door with his foot again, "Uh, Sakura-chan?" It flew open with little pressure and confused, both boys entered the house. It was quiet, and Naruto frowned. "Hellllooo?"
"Shut up, Dobe."
Sasuke disappeared down the hallway and found Sakura on the floor, her back leaning against the bathtub. Her toothbrush was lying in the sink as if she had just used it, and her hair was wet, pushed back off her face.
"Had to throw up," She informed them quietly.
Naruto made a face but Sasuke just stood there, looking intimidating. Sakura seemed to forget her anger towards them and stared at them awkwardly before something registered to her, "Uh, why are you in my house?"
"We need to talk," Sasuke responded dully.
"I love you!" Naruto blurted, looking embarrassed.
Both Sasuke and Sakura turned to look at him, stone expressions set in place. Naruto cowered.
"Uh…thanks?" Sakura said finally, "Love you, too."
"Sakura-chan," Naruto said with a sigh, looking away, then at Sasuke, then away again, "I mean that I really love--"
"I know what you meant," Sakura replied breathily, blinking up at him, "And I know what I meant. Which was the same. I love you. I love you both."
Sasuke looked a little lost.
"That's the eighth sin," Sakura voiced, ignoring their confused looks. "Love."
"How is love a sin?" Naruto asked, putting his back to the bathroom wall and sliding down it as Sasuke leaned back on the sink.
"I love both of you. It's probably a sin to love two people."
"I don't think so," Sasuke said finally, looking down at his two team members.
"You don't?" Sakura blinked.
"Don't they consider it a sin to love the enemy, to love something they don't believe in. So why wouldn't love be the eighth sin?"
"I was under the impression there was only seven," Naruto mused.
"Well I'm saying there's eight," Sakura frowned.
"Love isn't a sin," Sasuke repeated.
"I don't think so either, because… despite the fact that this is gonna sound totally gay, I think I love that stupid teme, too," Naruto said, gesturing with a thumb at Sasuke. "So, if you're going to hell for loving two people, I'm going with you."
Sasuke snorted, "Oh really?"
"Really," Naruto growled, "You got something to say?"
"Didn't think so!"
"Naruto," Sakura warned, "Shush."
"Now," She said, turning to Sasuke, "I've been getting vibes from you. What's the deal?"
"Vibes?" He asked quietly.
"Vibes. Do you like me or what?"
"You could say that."
She stood up, brushing off her clothes before she moved over to Sasuke, grabbing his face and kissing him harshly. He kissed back and Sakura could hear Naruto clambering to get up but she held up her hand to stop him. She pulled away from Sasuke and moved over to Naruto, holding out her hand to help him up.
He looked at her, confused, but took the hand offered to him and allowed her to haul him off the bathroom floor. The second he was standing she leaned in, capturing his lips with hers. He was shocked, and it took him a moment to respond properly. When she broke away for the second time that night, she turned to both the boys with a smirk on her face, "Don't even lie to me and say it isn't a sin that I want you both."
Naruto's eyes widened as his nose started to bleed when his perverted side got the better of him. The prospect of getting to be with both of his teammates made him shiver, and as he looked over at his male counterpart, he could see it was having the same effects on the young Uchiha.
Sasuke blinked at her for a second before he met her smirk with one of his own. Her eyes twinkled as she brought a single finger up to her lips in silent challenge.
"Catch me if you can," She whispered, running off towards her bedroom.
Both boys looked at one another for a second before they barreled down the hall after her.
It's the end of the seven sins! Whooooo!
:D Review for me?
And HAPPY BIRTHDAY SASUKE-KUN!, MOMO-CHAN & DANIEL RADCLIFFE! Hehe.
