"You stupid girl!" He yelled as me as he hit me. "Why did I have to get a daughter like you?!" There were tears in my eyes. He always yelled at me, it didn't matter what I did. It never mattered if I did anything right or wrong. It's been like this ever since my mom died. My father just lost it, and he hated me.

"Did you say something!?" He asked.

"I'm sorry daddy! I didn't mean to!" I sobbed only to get hit again.

"Don't cry it only show weakness!!" He yelled as I nodded and wiped away my tears.

"I'll try not to." I said but even more tears come. He then hit me more and more.

12 years later.

I work up in cold sweat from my nightmare. Hi there I'm Sakura Haruno and, I'm 17 will I will be 18 in about 4 mouths but anyways I live with my stepbrother Naruto Uzumaki and Naruto's parents, Shizune and Minato. Naruto is Minato son from his first marriage. Shizune is a very young woman, but is expecting a new baby soon, she is 4 months along. They have been like my real parents for the past 11 years. You see, my mother died when I was 3 and after that my father started to lose it little by little. And he began to hit me, he continued hitting me my last few months with him where the worse and weirder things he would do was that he would bite and hit me every minute of the day, sober or drunk. One day our neighbors came and saw what he did to me and called some shinobi, one was Minato Uzumaki. That's how he found me, he felt bad for me, so that same day he took me in, and that night I lost my only family member and I go a new one. I still remember that day.


It was around 11 pm and I was 6 at the time my father had just come back home. When he saw me up me came at me.

"You stupid child you should me sleeping not up!" He yelled I had no longer cried, I just stood up.

"I, I was doing home work and I don't understand it." I said.

"What?! You can't even that right you're beyond stupid! You good for nothing brat!" This time he hit me with the beer bottle in his hand which knocked me out. The next thing I remembered was when I woke up and they were taking my dad away.

"Daddy!" I yelled as I tried to run to him. This time I did cry he looked at me with hatred in his eyes. They were so cold; they were so full of hatred that it made me stop. "You are not my daughter." Was the last thing he said to me as he was pulled away. It made me drop to my knees and cry as hard as I could. The next thing I knew, Minato came to me and pulled me into a hug.

"There, there, little one. Tell me your name." He said as he stood up with me in his arms.

"I'm Sakura Haruno." I said. He smiled at me. "Tell me, Sakura. Do you have anyone else to live with?" He asked me. "No, daddy is the only one who was taking care of me." I answered him.

"Oh, ok. Then tell me, do you know my son? His name is Naruto Uzumaki." He asked, I nodded I know I have seen him from somewhere. Naruto was a classmate of mine. "Yes he's the boy that always says 'believe it!'" I said as he laughed.

"Yes, that's him alright. Will you see me and my wife, we're looking to adopt and seeing that you need a new family what do you say about me being your new daddy?" He asked. At that moment was the most happy that I ever felt sine my mom died, but I then felt great pain.

"What's wrong?" He asked.

"You don't want me. I'm too weak. You should want someone better." I said.

"Don't say that, you are strong, I can see that you will be a great ninja one day, just like my son." He said with a smile and at that moment, I became his daughter. That same night I met Naruto and Shizune.

End of flashback.

Well, I've changed a lot since then, I have some really great friends in school, but they're always dating and leaving me behind, it gets lonely, although, Ino keeps on bugging about getting a boyfriend, but all I want to do is finish school and become a kunoichi, to prove everyone how strong I am, mostly to my dad.

"Sakura, Naruto! Get down here or you'll be late!" Shizune yelled fromdownstairs. I stood up and took my backpack as if it was a normal day, so I

had normal class. Both Naruto and I got out at the same time.

"Morning, Sakura!" He said as he saw me come out.

"Morning Naruto." I said as we walked together downstairs. "Morning kids, did you sleep will?" Minato asked us.

"Great dad! I had dreams of Ramen." Naruto said, I just rolled my eyes.

"You will never change, will you Naruto?" I asked, knowing the answer. "How about you, Sakura?" Minato asked me.

"Oh, um, fine." I lied. The truth was that I had kept dreaming of my life before Naruto, Minato and Shizune, about my father and mother.

"Sakura, are you working today?" Shizune asked me.

"Um, yeah. I'm taking the night shift and sleeping over at Adrienne's, so that I don't come home so late. And tomorrow is Saturday, is it ok?" I asked, giving them my last minute plans.

"Yes, that's fine. Just make such you don't stay up too late. I know you're old enough, but we worry about you both." Shizune said as Naruto and I finished eating. "Alright. Thank you, Shizune. Take care. You too, Minato." I said and stood up.

"Bye, mom, dad. Hey, Sakura? Can I drive?" Naruto asked, trying to catchup to me.

"No." Was all I said. "Come on, just this once?"

"No Naruto. You know what Shizune and Minato said you are not allowed to dive until you show some responsibility and seeing that this is you, you'll have to wait for another 30 years." I said laughing. And we got in. I could tell Naruto was a little upset but he's always mean to me, so that was my chance to get back at him. As I drove, I had to get our best friend Sasuke, who is in our cell and in our homeroom.

"Hi Sasuke." I said as he got on. "

Hn." Was all he said, he and his brother were too much alike. As we got to school, we headed to class. When we got to homeroom, we stopped to see the Akatsuki. The Akatsuki are a gang that Sasuke's brother is in and Naruto always wishes he could be in it. I don't know why they are feared, they do nothing but bully others, distract the class, and break every rule they can and more. But then again, Naruto thinks that stuff is cool. By lunch I was sitting with Sasuke and Naruto ran to us with that stupid smile he always has when something good happens.

"What's up Naruto?" I asked him.

"You will never guess what happened!?" He said as he got to us.

"What is it, Naruto?" I asked as Sasuke ate and I drank my juice. "The Akatsuki want me to join!" He yelled happy making me spit my juice and making Sasuke choke on his food.

"ARE YOU CRAZY?!" We yelled together Naruto just smiled and looked as if he was as happy as he could get. With that stupid grin of his.

"Naruto, if Minato finds out, he is going to kill you!"

"Come on, Sakura. Don't say that, dad won't mind and why don't you call our parents mom and dad? Come on they did raise you too you know." He said. I never did told Naruto about my real dad I didn't want him to feel bad.

"Naruto. You know my real dad is dead." I said. That was what I always told him.

"Come on, Sakura. You should just gave it a try." He said. I just shook my head.

"Wait, you're trying to change the subject. Nice try, but you are going to have to tell us what happen." I said. "Fine, long story short I was at math and Deidara and Hidan where there and they where doing this jock ad I gave them an idea that they could do and they liked it and asked me to join and I said yes that's what happened, ok? Now I have to go and sit with them for lunch from now on. Well, see ya!" He said as he left. Oh, if I was in the mood, I would so throw him miles always by now, but I'm too upset. Naruto had just left me. We have been together since Minato took me to live with them.

"Don't worry, Sakura. He will be back, he won't make it a day with them." Sasuke said. I just nodded.

End of school

I drove to the restaurant that I work at with Adrienne who is 20. We are very good friends. She very smart, but never had enough money to go on to school since she been living on her own since she was 15. She works with me everyday, she did have another job, but that was at night, I don't think she would be working there tonight since she's letting me stay with her and the other girls that she lives with. Ok, so she's not so much alone as you would think, the other girls had jobs too, but there were still things they had to buy, even though they each had jobs. Well, anyways, Adrienne had waste long black hair that was wavy with dark blue eyes. Her skin was pale making her look like snow. If you looked closely into her eyes you could see all the pain she had been through, but maybe only some with the same pain as her could see it and

that's why I could. I don't know but I always felt close to her.

"Hey there, Sakura. About time. Come on and take the orders." She said as I came in.

"I'm on it!" I said as I put on the apron. There was about an hour left of work when a man come in. I went to take his order.

"Hello sir, how may I help you?" I asked.

"Well well, you've grown so much, Sakura." I froze at his voice and looked at the man.
