As the thunder crashed above, a girl ran through the forest. Her dark brown hair looked black and threw water everywhere as she whipped her head around trying to see anything other than trees. She heard a branch snap behind her and dashed off in a random direction clutching her side. She had to get away. To escape.
As she was looking behind her she almost slammed into a wall. She sobbed in relief as she followed it, trying to find a way in. Her vision had clouded over and she could only see straight in front of her. She kept on hand to the wall almost leaning on it. Suddenly the wall ended and she fell over. She struggled to get up but the black edged in closer. Before she fainted she thought she heard voices and prayed that it was villagers.
She kept her eyes shut as she slowly started to wake up. Wherever she was it was warm and comfy. Slowly she opened her eyes then quickly shut them again. Too much white. Inch by inch she tried to get her eyes accustomed and a few moments later was looking around the room. It was clear she was in a hospital. She lifted her shirt up slightly to examine her side. It was neatly bandaged. She sighed. At least she was somewhere safe. But where was she? She heard the door rattle and she tensed slightly but forced herself to calm down. These people saved her life. Her eyebrows rose in surprise.
"Oh you're awake. It's about time. We were starting to get worried," said the nurse.
"You're hair is pink," replied the girl in astonishment.
Sakura reached up and touched her hair. "Yeah. It's natural too. I take it you've never seen the color before," she laughed a little. "My name is Haruno Sakura. The guards saw you collapse at the gate a few nights back. They brought you here."
"Where am I?" asked the girl.
"You're in Konohagakure," replied Sakura. "What's your name?"
"Are you a ninja?"
"Well you must have lost your headband somewhere. We couldn't find it. Where are you from?"
Chinatsu opened her mouth and a look of astonishment flitted across her face. She looked back to Sakura.
"I don't know."
Sakura left Chinatsu after a quick checkup and headed straight for Tsunade's office. She knocked on the office door then opened it.
"Tsunade-sama? The girl has woken up."
Tsunade looked up. "That's good. Did you find out where she's from?"
Sakura shook her head. "That's where the problem starts. She knows her name, Ahriyushi Chinatsu, and she remembers everything about her past and all her jutsus but can't remember anything to do with the people she knew or where she came from."
Tsunade folded her hands together. "Interesting."
"Could it have anything to do with how she got here? Do you think her own village attacked her?"
Tsunade sighed. "I was thinking the same thing. If that is true we can't push it. In all likelyhood her own mind has blocked that from her memory. In any case I want you to show her around Konoha when she's better. She'll be around at least until she regains her memory."
Later that day Sakura visited Chinatsu again. "How are you feeling?"
Chinatsu sighed in frustration. "I can't believe I can't remember anything."
"Don't push it. You'll remember everything eventually. Tsunade-sama says you're welcome here."
Chinatsu smiled brightly. "Really?"
Sakura nodded. "So how do you feel? It's been four days since you got here. Do you think you can walk? I want to show you around."
Chinatsu nodded. "I already got up to go to the bathroom."
"Who said you could get out of your bed?"
Chinatsu grinned sheepishly. "I have a problem sometimes with authority. Especially if I know I can do something and I'm not allowed to."
Sakura sighed. "Fine. I brought you some new clothes."
Chinatsu nodded and hopped out of bed. Sakura got to see her really for the first time. She wasn't skinny but she wasn't fat either. She seemed very athletic but had a larger than average chest. Sakura judged her to be about a C cup. (No it is not perverted, girls judge each other) She had dark brown hair and dark eyes that often glittered for some reason known only to Chinatsu. She quickly changed into the clothes Sakura had brought her, a pair of ninja shorts and a skirt like Sakura's but green and a tank top shirt.
"I know it's not much. I'm sure Tsunade-sama will give you some money to buy new clothes. If not I'll give you some," said Sakura.
As they walked out of the hospital Sakura asked, "So how old are you?"
"I'm 20," replied Chinatsu.
"Oh so am I. How about a nickname like Chi-chan or something?"
Chinatsu giggled. "The only nickname I remember is Natsu-chan and you reversed it, but either is fine. I realize my name is a mouthful."
Sakura laughed. "It's not that bad. Hopefully we'll get to meet some of my friends while I show you around."
"Are any of them cute?" joked Chinatsu.
Sakura laughed then shrugged. "Never really thought about it. I have a boyfriend."
"Oh," replied Chinatsu looking slightly sad.
"Do you have a boyfriend?" asked Sakura.
Chinatsu shook her head. "Always wanted one but no guy ever saw me as more than a friend… I think. Hard to tell for sure when you can't remember any guys you used to know."
"Don't worry about it. It's their loss you seem really nice," smiled Sakura.
They chatted some more as they walked through Konoha. Suddenly a big white dog bounded up to them.
"Hey big guy. What's up?" said Chinatsu reaching to scratch the dog behind his ears.
"That's Akamaru. Guess that means you'll meet Kiba pretty soon," explained Sakura.
"Hey Akamaru. Aren't you a big dog?" crooned Chinatsu. Akamaru woofed and licked her face. She giggled.
"Hey Sakura!" called a voice.
"That's Kiba," said Sakura to Chinatsu. Chinatsu turned to see a dark haired boy with some triangle markings on his face running towards them. She thought he looked kinda cute in wild kind of way.
"Hey Kiba," said Sakura as he approached them. Chinatsu kept absentmindedly scratching Akamaru behind his ear.
"This is Chinatsu," introduced Sakura and Kiba took a good look at her. She wasn't half bad looking.
"Where are you from?" he asked. She frowned slightly.
"Gomen Kiba," she replied. Kiba looked puzzled.
"She staggered into the village and collapsed about four days ago. She'd been attacked, but now she can't remember anything to do with where she came from. Tsunade-sama's letting her stay here until she remembers."
"Can you remember anything else?" asked Kiba curious.
"I can remember everything else except where I came from or anyone there," replied Chinatsu frustrated.
"That's ok. I'm sure you'll remember," said Kiba reassuringly smiling slightly.
"Thanks," she replied flashing a smile. Kiba was taken aback. Her smile was gorgeous. He thought she was cute but when she smiled… Wow.
Akamaru woofed at Kiba. Chinatsu smiled at the dog.
"Is he your pet?"
"No. He' not a pet but he is mine. Actually I'm surprised you weren't scared when he ran up to you."
Chinatsu laughed. "I've always loved all kinds of dogs." She frowned. "Although now that I think of it I don't know why his size doesn't bother me. He's quite a bit larger than normal dogs." She trailed off and Akamaru took the opportunity to lick her face again.
"Akamaru!" scolded Kiba.
Chinatsu laughed. "It's fine Kiba. Well if he isn't your pet what is he then?"
"He's my partner," explained Kiba. "We work together to complete missions and stuff."
"Your…partner?" asked Chinatsu, eyes widening but not in shock, in fear. She froze but then started shaking. Kiba stepped towards her.
"Don't hurt me," she whimpered flinching back, pupil's dilating. Sakura and Kiba exchanged a glance.
"I'm sorry. I won't do it again please," begged Chinatsu. Her hands flew up to clutch her head. Akamaru whimpered.
"Please no!" she yelled falling to the ground.
"Sakura what the hell is going on?!?" yelled Kiba not sure what to do.
"I think she remembered something," replied Sakura rushing to Chinatsu's side. "And now she's reliving it." Suddenly Chinatsu started screaming and flailing around.
"We need to get her to the hospital now!" commanded Sakura.
"Akamaru can get her there quick," replied Kiba.
"She needs to stop moving. She'll fall off," said Sakura starting to get frantic.
"Get on Akamaru. We'll have to hold her," replied Kiba bending down and picking up Chinatsu trying his best to stop her thrashing and ignoring when she did hit him. He got her on Akamaru and they dashed off to the hospital.
AN: Well I'm back. This originally was going to be basically me running around the Naruto world but something happened and now she only sort of looks like me and has the jutsus I think are cool. I may write more stories with her and she could be paired with either Kiba or Kankuro depends on the story. I hope you like it.
I don't own Naruto.
