Full Summary: They were best friends back then. But when he moves, everything changes. Ten years pass and her family moves too. They meet, but have no clue about eachother, or who the other one is. Then how are they supposed to revive their long lost friendship? And what's that about a crush??

Disclaimer and such: I have a confession to make.......I don't own Naruto. Shocker, huh? This is AU btw...

A Promise

"Sasuke-kun, you're doing it wrong." stated my friend. Yes, she's a girl, but who cares? She looks about frustrated with me, maybe because I'm doing this wrong.

"Well, I don't want to play this!" I protested, pulling off the elegant hat on my head revealing my, now disheveled hair. It's naturally spiked up, maybe because it's too short. "It's too girly." I made a disgusted face. It's not her, I just don't like playing tea party.

"Then what do you want to play?" she whined. She, too, took her hat off and gloves and followed me out the door.

"We'll play..." I thought for a moment, then turned around. "Rescue the princess!"

Sakura stared at me, an eyebrow raised, before she spoke up. "No way!"

"Why not?"

"Because then that means you have to 'rescue' me." Her voice showed some anger, hurt, and...anger as she quoted and emphasized the word rescue. I stared at her back. There was something up with her. She usually went along with this game.

"What's wrong with that?"

"I don't like being unrestimte. Um...untirestim...uh..." she never liked big words.

"Underestimated?" I finished for her. She nodded her head, then turned away angrily.

"I'm pretty strong too, you know!" she glared at me one last time before stomping off.

"Okay, Sakura, I'm sorry." I chased after her. She turned around, unable to just ignore me like that. I think she likes me...ew! Girls have cooties! It's gross… Even though nii-chan doesn't think so. "We'll just play something else."

"Like...?" she was way past angry now.

"We can spar," I suggested.

"Okay," she happily brightened up and stepped back, her hands going up in her fighting stance. I mirrored her actions, and we started.

I started with something straightforward: a jump side-kick. She reflexively threw her hands up to protect her face from the impact, and moved aside so she could attack. It went on for a while; punches and kicks were thrown and blocked.

"You're...really good." I admitted after a while.

"Told you," she bragged. Maybe her way of saying thank you.

"But I'm still better." I said before catching her foot, flipping her around, and pinning her down to the soft grass- my hands on both sides of her head and my knees on either side of her hips. She's just staring at me, her pretty emerald eyes looking up at my darker ones.

"Um...S-Sasuke-kun?" she stammers, her face looks red. I awkwardly push myself off her and help her up. We both look away, I could feel my face get hot...

"You'll still have to get better if you wanna beat me when we get married." she joked.

"…Married?" I questioned, surprised.

"Yeah!" she chirped. "When we get older, we'll get married! Cause we're best friends."

"Oh…" I turned away, blushing again.

"Sasuke, honey," I hear my name being called the second time. "Let's go."

"Yes, mom," I sigh and climb over the fence.

Something was different though. The rooms were completely empty and instead of the furniture lying around, there were boxes. Some were closed and others still open. "Mom...?"

"Sasuke..." she paused. "We're moving."

"What?!" Sakura answers for me.

"Don't worry, Sakura," her mom reassured. "They're only moving to Konoha."

"But," I cut in. "I heard Konoha is on the other side of Japan!" I remember Itachi telling me that before.

"Sakura, you have five minutes." her mother tells her. "They're leaving early tomorrow morning and we don't want to keep them up." The clock to my right tells me it's late: the longer hand is on the six while the shorter one is on the seven. Why couldn't anyone tell me this before? I hate surprises…

"Mom...Why couldn't you tell me this before?" I let out my thoughts.

"I did," she looks surprised. She did? "Two weeks ago."

"Oh yeah." I look down, fighting tears. I'm a boy. We don't cry- or so Itachi says... "Come on," I take Sakura by the hand and we go somewhere else. To my room.

She sits down on my bed, even after I told her the maid just cleaned up. Apparently she doesn't care. I walk over to her, but I notice something on my drawer.

Ah, I remember now!

After my mom told me we were moving, I knew I probably wouldn't see her again. So Itachi told me to get this: it's a necklace. Two of them, actually. They're both hearts- but a heart ripped down the middle. One says 'Best' the other says 'Friend'. It was expensive...so I had to borrow money...from my mom.

But she said it was okay…

"Here," I say, handing her one of them. She takes if from my hands gently, stares at it, then looks back at me. She was going to say something, I think, but her mom called her again.

She stands up sadly, the necklace in her hand as she tightly held onto it.

"Wait," I call after her. She stops and I run up to her, wrapping my arms around her waist. I don't really care if it's not "manly". I'll miss her. I feel her arms go around my neck- she's hugging me back.

"I'll miss you, Sasuke-kun." she tells me before pulling away. Then she does something that surprises me: she leans forward and kisses me on the cheek. My eyes widen again as I feel my face and neck getting hot once more. "Don't forget me." were her last words.

"I promise."

But before I can say anything else, she's gone.

Short, I know…but prologues are naturally short! ...I think.

Yeah, this was in Sasuke's point of view, but the rest will be in Sakura's. Review!!

Aaaannnndddd just so you know as well, they're about 6 here, and the rest they'll be 16+...
