Summary: AU. Love is unforeseen. She was asked by Sasuke to pretend as if she is his girlfriend so Sakura, his arranged fiancée, would leave him alone. However, everything unexpected has happened.
Chapter 1: And It Began
"Sasuke, are you sure?" the beautiful blonde-haired lady asked, hesitating. "I mean, no shit?"
"…I am," he answered. "You're the only person who can help me right now."
"So, you're telling me that you got a fiancée," she analyzed. "And you do not like her, so you want me to act as if you're my guy?"
"My father set me up with this girl without consulting me," he said. "It's about business stuff."
"Sasuke, why don't ya try?" she insisted. "I mean, what if you will like her and she's your ideal girl?"
"That's impossible," Sasuke rolled his eyes. "Are you going to help me or what?"
"Sure, Sasuke. You are my friend," she smiled. "We just have to pretend, right?"
"That's a relief," he sighed. "…Thanks."
"When do we start then?" Ino asked. "And how is this gonna work?"
"We're going to start tomorrow," he retorted. "She's transferring here tomorrow, and we just have to make her see that we're a couple and wait until she gets tired and leave the hell off me alone."
"So, have you met her?"
He nodded; Ino, on the other hand, was fired up and asked how she looked like.
"…Repulsive," he described. "And annoying."
"Hey!" Ino made a face. "Now that was mean."
"I was just saying the truth."
"Sasuke, we're seniors and we'll be graduating next semester," she looked at him. "Have you thought about college?"
"My parents want me to take over the company," he said. "I need to take something that relates with business stuff."
"Is that you want?" she asked with concern. "I don't think so."
"I don't have a choice," he focused his gaze on the ground. "Itachi doesn't want to take over the company, so the responsibility is passed to me."
"That's what my brother, Deidara, wantsto do too," she sadly smiled. "He also doesn't wanna take over our company, but I don't have any intention of taking over the company for him."
He stayed quiet.
"College is almost there," she reminded him. "Don't let anyone run your life; you're going to regret that, I am telling ya…"
She grinned and started walking off, he watched her until she faded from his sight.
Ino entered the room, and saw an emotionless Sasuke sitting at his desk while looking outside the window. She decided to talk to him and asked him what was on his mind.
"Hey, love!" Ino shouted, capturing their classmates' attention. "Looks like you're in deep thought."
"Hi," Sasuke smiled at her, he saw how their classmates' jaws dropped with that smile. "Just thinking about something."
She heard their classmates' chattering like:
"Since when are they going out?"
"I thought they were just friends!"
"Are they serious?"
"Wow, that is sweet."
"So, Uchiha is actually a man!"
"Man, Ino should be mine, not Uchiha's!"
"That witch! Sasuke-kun, why did you go out with her?"
Some fan-boys and fan-girls were crying over the news, and in one snap the news was spread throughout the whole campus.
"Ino! Sasuke!" they saw their friends walking towards them, ready to interrogate. "Is it true?"
"True what?" Ino asked, pretending she had no idea what they were talking about. "What do you mean?"
"That you and Sasuke are actually dating," Tenten stated. "Oh my goodness! Is it true?"
"Yes, we've been dating for almost 7 months now," Ino acted as if she was blushing. "We didn't tell all of you 'cause we were not ready yet."
"I knew that there's something between both of you all along," Naruto said as if he was a genius. If he only knew. "Congrats, Sasuke-teme! I never thought you had balls!"
"I'm not like you," said Sasuke with irritated tone. "I'm not a loser."
"C-Congrats, Ino-chan," Hinata smiled. "H-Hope you two last together forever."
"Thank you, Hinata," Ino returned the smile, and Sasuke just nodded to Hinata to show some gratitude.
"Does Sasuke know how to kiss?" Kiba asked maliciously. "Sasuke, how farhave you gone?"
"That's not for you to know, pervert!" Ino smacked Kiba in the head very hard. "That's private."
"Sasuke-kun! Ino-san! I am happy for both of you," Lee said as he gave them a nice-guy post. "May the power of youth will always be with you two!"
"Thanks, Rock Lee," Ino smiled. "You're such a good guy."
They heard someone faked a cough in front of their classroom to get their attention. They went back to their seats and kept quiet. Ino sat beside Sasuke's desk. Only Sasuke and Ino knew what was going to happen next. They knew that their teacher would introduce a new person.
"Good morning, everyone," Kurenai said, she was their homeroom teacher. "There's a new student in our class, be nice to her… you may come in now."
And a pink-haired girl with emerald eyes entered the room. Some male students thought she was cute and pretty. Sasuke remained emotionless and Ino thought she was not that bad. However, Naruto thought she was all perfect and such.
"I am Haruno Sakura," she introduced herself. "I am the only daughter of the Haruno Company and you do not mess up with me! Keep your hands out of my belongings."
People raised their eyebrows and started whispering about her and her attitude. Ino rolled her eyes and mumbled some words under her breath. She never thought that Sasuke's fiancée was even worse than she thought.
"Sasuke," Ino called her 'boyfriend.' "What the hell is up with that girl?"
Sasuke didn't bother to answer because he had no idea what was up with that girl's attitude since he just saw her once.
"Hey, you, bimbo!" Sakura exclaimed as she pointed to Ino. "I want to sit in that seat, get the hell out of that chair now!"
"Hell no," Ino just smiled at the pink-haired girl. "I want to sit next to my man."
"Your man?" Sakura questioned heatedly. "He is my fiancé!"
Everyone was shocked, except for Ino and Sasuke.
"That's not true," Sasuke objected. "There is no way you are my fiancée, I already have a girlfriend."
"Awww…" the people in the class squealed except Sakura, they thought that was sweet of Sasuke to stand up for Ino.
Ino smirked at Sakura. But deep down, she thought that Sasuke was so cute when he told Sakura that he had already gotten a girlfriend.
"Sakura-san," Kurenai called Sakura. "You should probably just want to sit next to Naruto."
She was defeated, it's not like she had a choice at all. She sat beside the loud blond-haired boy with whiskers who gave him a warm smile, in which she ignored.
"He's going to be mine," Sakura gave Ino an evil glare. "I am not going to lose to the likes of you."
"Bring it on," Ino beamed at her. "Sasuke is my man."
