A/N: I have something important to ask of all of you, but it's at the end of this one-shot. For now, please enjoy the story!
Track 11: Sway – Michael Buble
When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more
"You lost again, Sasuke."
"A sore loser doesn't make a good boyfriend, Sasuke."
Summer's days were getting hotter and Sasuke and Sakura found themselves spending more and more time in their houses.
Konoha's excruciating heat was really something to be reckoned with. Sakura had actually come to Sasuke's house once or twice swearing that she had seen buildings melting. Yes, melting. As in the sun's ultraviolet rays were strong enough to deface various buildings and whatnot.
Sasuke's pink-haired girlfriend grinned widely as she waved the Wii remote in her hand tightly, "And here I thought you were good at everything! Boy, do you suck at dancing."
Sakura paused their game – Just Dance 2 – and headed into the kitchen for a glass of lemonade; Sasuke's mother always made the best lemonade. Sasuke tossed his controller onto the couch and followed Sakura.
Opening the beautifully-stocked fridge, Sakura pulled out a pitcher of the yellow liquid and filled half of her glass with its contents. She took a swig and turned to Sasuke, her small hand placed on the countertop.
Sasuke glared at her and shoved past her; he pulled a water bottle from the fridge and choked down nearly half of it. He gasped after he removed it and Sakura shook her head.
"It isn't that serious."
"I don't dance."
It was rather obvious that Sasuke was taking his thirty seventh consecutive loses to heart. Sakura bit her lips together to stop the giggle rising, but Sasuke knew.
She was making fun of him. This was simply unacceptable. Sakura, that annoying neighbor of his with the stupid pink hair and green eyes
He slammed his bottle down and gripped her wrist.
"Again." He growled.
"What? You want to lose again, Sasuke?" Sakura asked jokingly. Sasuke growled and moved his hand to hers and gripped it tightly, Sakura blushed, "You. Are. Going. To. Lose." He bit out, syllable by syllable.
Sakura, with her blush still present, sighed and gave up, accepting Sasuke's challenge. Satisfied with her agreement, he pulled her into the living room roughly and shoved a controller into her hand.
"You pick, Sakura," the pinkette raised a brow, but nonetheless obeyed her steely-eyed boyfriend's command. She scrolled through the various songs provided on the main menu and stopped abruptly when she read the perfect dance for her to totally crush Sasuke in.
"We're doing Sway, Sasuke."
Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance you have a way with me
Stay with me, sway with me
This was the first time that Sasuke was actually proving his dancing ability. By the time the two had reached the middle of the song, Sakura was fully-absorbed in the game, silencing all taunting she had beforehand delivered onto her friend.
"I'm gonna win!"
"Like hell you are!"
Though Sasuke did not want to admit it, he knew that Sakura's presence was one of the main reasons why he was doing so well this round. When they moved together, Sasuke could feel something deeply-rooted in his chest stir and a warmth would radiate throughout his body. When Sakura's body came closer to his, that feeling would re-emerge and cause Sasuke to tremble.
It was only with Sakura.
He gritted his teeth as Sakura drifted closer to him, this time, her emerald-gaze locked onto his face. She grinned coyly and patted Sasuke's shoulder lightly; Sasuke held in a breath.
"Dang Sasuke, you didn't tell me you were holding back."
Sakura let out a loud laugh and turned back to the game; Sasuke was winning by 100 points and the song was nearing its end. As Sakura danced harder, trying to close up the point gap between herself and Sasuke, Sasuke thrived, keeping the pinkette at bay.
Sakura found it unbelievably frustrating; why must Uchiha be so talented at everything?
Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have the magic technique
When we sway I go weak
She was so concentrated on winning the round that she didn't even notice her loss of equilibrium. With a short squeak, Sakura stumbled over and crashed into Sasuke's chest. On reflex, the Uchiha caught her and held her tightly against his body. Sasuke stopped abruptly and the music came to an end.
For those moments, they merely stared at one another, letting this moment simmer. Sakura's face had already erupted into flames, but she couldn't help but stay where she was, motionless. With Sasuke's arms wound tightly around her waist and his eyes on hers, she didn't want to go anywhere else far away from him. Her limbs were rendered useless as she helplessly slumped against Sasuke's larger frame.
The Uchiha, however, did not mind it at all.
"Sa...Sasuke." Sakura murmured lowly. She looked down and averted her gaze to the carpeted floor. Sasuke's lips twitched upwards and he reached to cup her chin, tilting her face upwards to look at him again.
"Don't look away, Sakura," he said. Before Sakura could really register anything, for she felt like she was going into Sasuke-induced cardiac arrest, she noticed his face coming closer to hers. Her heart thumped more and more loudly as Sasuke approached her.
Sakura closed her eyes in anticipation.
It never came.
"Well now, otouto, I don't think that is a dance move on this game. Trust me, I've done all the songs." It was just like Itachi to barge into the room at that moment.
The pair regained feeling in their limbs and broke away from each other, very quickly and awkwardly. Itachi laughed and whistled innocently as he poured himself a glass of water and disappeared back into the hallway, all while dodging the daggers Sasuke was throwing at him.
(Oh he was good, that bastard, Sasuke thought bitterly.)
When Itachi's retreating footsteps became inaudible, Sasuke and Sakura faced each other again. Sasuke rubbed the back of his neck and grumbled, "...sorry about that..."
He didn't expect to hear Sakura's contagious laughter, but he did. Sakura erupted into a fit of uncontrollable giggles; moving closer to her friend, she grasped his hand and squeezed it. She stood on her toes and pecked his cheek; Sasuke scowled as a small blush gave away his embarrassment.
"S'okay, we can try again." Sakura said, pressing the 'restart' button on the remote; the song played again, but the two weren't paying attention to the directions on the TV; Sakura held her hand out for Sasuke to take and very hesitantly, he took it.
She placed one of Sasuke's hands on her waist and held the other her own hand went over Sasuke's broad shoulders. Catching her drift, the Uchiha smirked and drew her in closer, against his chest. Sakura fought off all urges to blush and merely smiled.
"Try not to step on my foot, okay?"
"Shut up. I beat you the last time." Both were smiling now as they began to dance to the music, neither one caring that they weren't receiving any points for this dance on the game console.
The score was 37 to 1.
I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now
