Alright, here's a new story! I got this idea while watching star wars 2 and 3. You know, since Anakin and Padme have a secret relationship? Yeah, well that's how I got the idea of it. I know, I know, such an unoriginal idea, but hey, I don't care :P I really like the idea of them having a secret relationship, and I wanna try that out. :D

This is not the original storyline of Naruto, by the way. Sasuke will be a little OOC. Really not that much, though. I think. xD

A Truth Not To Be Revealed

by DeepPoeticGirl


It was getting irritating.

Irritating, and maybe a little hard.

Their opponents were much stronger than they had both estimated, and it was a shock—well Naruto not so much, but for Sasuke? He was usually never wrong about his calculations. But it was nothing to really worry about, that he knew, because no matter how much stronger these opponents apparently were, they could not defeat two extremely experienced, cunning, genius-like, fast and strong ANBU'S such as them. No doubt, Sasuke was obviously the only actual genius there, but Naruto had, too, learned how to use his brain during missions.

Uchiha Sasuke and Uzumaki Naruto made an unbeatable team.

"Oi, Sasuke, how are you hanging in there?" he heard the knuckleheaded blonde call to him, no doubt probably grinning, although he wouldn't know because he kept his eyes on the man he was fighting. He grunted, smirking a bit, but landed a loud and hard hit on the tall jounin enemy, finally knocking him out. And then he turned, pacing towards the enemy Naruto was handling. He took his Kusanagi out of the case, slicing right through a ninja who had not noticed him in time, and as the enemy fell down, Sasuke turned to look at Naruto. "Hn. I think I'm doing just fine," he finally replied, smirking wider. Naruto laughed, before grinning in return.

"Come on, teme. We better get this stupid scroll back before they send any more annoying reinforcements."

Sasuke shrugged, placing his beloved katana back in its container before he turned, rubbing the back of his neck lightly while he dragged out a long sigh. "Finally, I was started to get annoyed with this stupid mission," he growled under his breath, infusing chakra in his feet as he prepared to launch at full speed towards the path that would lead them home.

Naruto followed without any complaints, because he was just as eager to get home as Sasuke was. But it didn't stop him from talking to his best friend anyway. "Oi, teme, I always wondered… why are you so rushed into getting back to the village when you don't even have anyone to return to?" he asked, tone quite confused, earning him a hot glare.

Well there, at least it's out, Naruto thought. He'd actually been wondering about that for the past few months.

"I have plenty of people to return to," Sasuke retorted, scowling at his best friend.

Naruto laughed, and then grinned in a cunning manner. "I meant other than those you know, Sasuke. Like, I'm talking about a girlfriend here. Or boyfriend for all I know." The last part didn't go unheard by Sasuke, whose head had shot in his direction to give him the deadliest glare he'd ever seen—something that made Naruto laugh again. "Well hey! You never showed any interest in any girl! I'm just saying, you know?" he explained, refraining himself from laughing even louder as the features of the lone Uchiha darkened all the more.

"Have you even ever gotten laid?" Naruto suddenly asked, out of the blue.

Sasuke, completely taken aback from the question, raised his eyebrows. "What kind of question is that?" He scowled, a frown creasing his perfectly defined features.

Naruto shrugged, and then grinned playfully. "Just a question. Like, you're twenty one, teme. I've never even seen you with a girl," he stated seriously.

Sasuke snorted, rolling his eyes. "Doesn't mean I haven't gotten laid. For all you know I could be having one night stands." But a sharp hit in the shoulder is what woke him from his apathetic state, and switched him to an irritated one. "What the hell was that for?!" he barked, rubbing the spot radiating with waves of pain.

To his surprise, Naruto was glaring sharply. "I swear to Kami, Sasuke, if ever you are having one night stands only, I'm giving you the bloodiest beating of life. A girl's feelings aren't to be played around with."

Sasuke scoffed, and then shook his head. "I didn't even say I had one night stands. It was a freaking example," he growled thickly, icily glaring at him. "And for your information, I am involved with someone," he muttered, although not meant for Naruto to hear.

As they began slowing down as they neared the gates of the village, he heard a gasp, and figured he'd heard it anyway. He rolled his eyes, sighing.

"WHAT?! WITH WHO?!" Naruto exclaimed loudly, nearly breaking Sasuke's eardrums.

"Shut the hell up, Naruto! You're gonna make my ears bleed!" he hissed, groaning in annoyance.

Naruto did so immediately, but his excitement didn't die down. "Honestly teme, who is she? and moreover, how long has this been going on?"

Sasuke groaned again, rubbing his temples soothingly, but then came to a halt as they reached the gates. "Look, Naruto, it's none of your business. And I'd rather you not tell anyone. You know how rumors spread. It's annoying as hell," he muttered, putting a hand on the closed doors to open them. But he was stopped by a wrist gripping his tightly.

"Fine, I'll respect that. But answer me this one question if you don't want to tell me who she is: how long has this been going on?"

Sasuke stayed quiet, for a moment, staring at the green wooden doors as if they were the most interesting thing in the world. Then he sighed, and removed his hand from Naruto's grip, turning to look at him. "A little bit more than half a year." he muttered, his eyes warningly pressing onto his. "Now shut up and don't tell anyone about this," he hissed, pushing the doors open without waiting for Naruto's promise to his statement.

Although, he probably should have, because technically nothing held Naruto back from telling everyone now.


oh, you opened my eyes…

…and showed me how life should be.


"Another successful mission, as expected of you, Uchiha Sasuke. You have impressed me a lot lately by coming back from such dangerous missions untouched. I don't even see a single scratch on you after this one, and I was so deeply sure there would be a few. Have you seen Sakura already?"

Sasuke shook his head at the Hokage, humming in negation. "Haruno Sakura has been much too busy lately. It's impossible to get a hold of her." And he spoke truth, because he had not seen the pink haired girl in a week, almost.

"Ah, yes. She's been asked a lot around the hospital lately. And talking about Sakura, she said she wanted to have a word with you. Is it possible to fit a small meeting with her in your busy schedule?" Tsunade asked, her eyes so sharp as they looked at him, as if commanding him to say yes. But he needed no such pressuring eyes to agree to her proposition, since he actually had plenty of time to waste before his next mission came along. He smirked lightly, shrugging lightly instead of fully agreeing, which was evidently satisfying for Tsunade, seeing as she huffed in triumph and smirked as well.

"Very well, we'll discuss your missions later. Or if you want, maybe we can discuss them now. It would hold me back from all the paperwork I have to do."

Sasuke huffed in amusement, but shook his head. "I have other errands to attend to. Now if you'll excuse me," he muttered, nodding once at the Hokage who nodded in return, swatting her hand away at the Uchiha to shoo him. Sasuke smirked, and turned, running a hand through his hair as he rounded a corner, stopping as he noticed the stairway that led to the rooftop of the Hokage tower. Shrugging, he made his way towards the stairs, and then climbed them up, but as he reached the top and opened the door, the view he was met with surprised him.

"…Sakura?" the raven haired ANBU questioned, closing the door behind him.

The girl whipped around quickly, gasping in surprise, but as her eyes landed on him, a huge grin appeared on her lips. "Sasuke-kun!" she exclaimed, turning around fully so she could run to him.

Sasuke found himself unable to hold back the small smile as he watched her sprint towards him, her long hair pulled out of her usual ponytail, making her pink tresses cascade beautifully down to the middle of her back. She was wearing a white summer dress that caressed her curves innocently, making her look like an angel to him. Upon seeing she was about to collide to him, he opened his arms to fully receive her, the smile on his lips growing a little as she threw her arms around his neck and buried her head in his shoulder.

"I missed you so much, Sasuke-kun…" she murmured, tightening her grip.

Sasuke fixed his arms around her to embrace the girl tightly, pressing his face into her hair. "It's nothing compared to me," he murmured, smirking lightly when she giggled and shook her head.

"Nuh-uh! I so missed you even more!" she retorted, pulling back to look at him.

She smiled, and Sasuke simply softly stared at her, bringing her closer, his head dipping down lightly. Sakura smiled while she unwrapped her arms from his neck to slowly slide them down to his chest as he dipped lower and lower, until their lips were barely a breath apart. Her eyes shut themselves as he brushed his nose against hers, and just as she smiled again, his lips met hers, pressing softly.

She returned his kiss, moving one of her hands from his chest to his shoulder, and then to the back of his neck, but as they both separated, she felt herself being basically crushed against his form.

"You have no idea how long it seemed ever since I've last seen you. You were being so goddamn annoying by plaguing my mind every second of every day." He kissed her harder, this time, and she had no trouble returning it, burying her hands in his hair.

"There were whispers around here. Rumors about your death in one of those S-classed missions. I was so worried, and so scared," his pink haired lover whispered back between a harsh, passionate kiss. "I thought I'd never see you again…" she went on, standing on the tip of her toes to kiss him better, and make it possible for her to deepen it.

His hands travel down to press on her hips, and he pulled her closer, kissing her even harder. "I'd never leave you," he breathed between a kiss, a light groan passing his lips as her hands somehow found their way under his dirtied shirt, rubbing his muscles slowly, sensually. He pulled back before anything could go too far, and he didn't fail to notice the pout forming on her lips as he gently took out her hands from his shirt. He cupped her face with his hands, then, kissing her forehead. "Later, alright? You have to get back to work. And as tempting as it is to take you right here and now, on this roof where we could be caught, I just can't. I don't think the world's ready for us just yet," he whispered, embracing her once more.

She giggled lightly, returning his warm hold. "I think they are. You just always refuse to face the fact people have finally accepted you back. There's no problem with Naruto's jealousy either—he's with Hinata now. Come on, Sasuke, we can't keep this a secret forever. It's been seven months that we've been hiding this. I want to be able to walk in the streets while holding your hand, and I want to be able to go on dates with actual people around. I want to be able to kiss you in front of everyone," she murmured, brushing her nose against his neck softly, inhaling his manly, sweaty, dirtied scent which turned her on.

He sighed, rubbing her back, but then kissed the top of her head. "Not yet," he murmured.

Sakura sighed, too, obviously disappointed a bit, but held herself back from completely falling into her sea of disappointment by reminding herself that she had to respect his wishes. If Sasuke was not ready, then she would not pressure him into being ready. She would have to be patient, just as he was patient with her when she had not been ready to sleep with him just yet. He respected her wishes, and so it was only natural that she should respect his.

"Even if you're not ready to reveal 'us' to the world, will you be able to come at the get-together that the Rookie nine have organized?" the pink haired woman asked softly while she pulled away to look at him. She could see the hesitance and indecisiveness in his eyes, as if he wasn't sure he should go or not, something that made her sigh again because she knew he was only debating to go for her.

"Sasuke-kun, don't go for me okay? I don't want to force you into coming somewhere you don't li—" But she was cut off by his arms pulling her to him tightly again, earning a yelp from her. "…Sasuke-kun?" she squeaked, trying to breathe under his tight hold.

"I'll go," he spoke against her hair, rubbing one of his hands up and down her back slowly. "It's the least I can do to thank you for your patience with me," he went on, kissing her locks lightly.

She smiled lightly, wrapping her arms around him, and then exhaled a content breath at the feeling of his heart beating in synch with hers. At that moment, she didn't know why she suddenly found herself thinking of how everything started.

Eight months

earlier

"That was delicious, really. Thank you!" Sakura chirped, placing her chopsticks in her empty bowl of ramen. She smiled gently to the man who owned the Ichiraku ramen stand, giggling when the blond haired boy next to her yelled in agreement to her comment. The girl then glanced at her other side, her cheery smile fading to a gentle and soft one as her eyes landed on the figure of Uchiha Sasuke, the nukenin who had just recently returned and still somehow had her heart.

Her stare didn't go unnoticed by him, although, but Sakura didn't really mind that he turned his head away from his food to look at her with a frown. In his obsidian eyes, she could clearly see the question he did not bother voicing aloud.

"What are you staring at me for?"

She simply smiled lightly at him, turning her head down to look at the time on her watch, but as she finally realized what time it was, she jumped in shock. "Shit! I'm late! I—Sorry guys, I gotta go!" she whispered hurriedly, slamming a ten dollar bill on the counter to pay for her meal.

Without really thinking, she pecked both males on the cheek before whipping around and sprinting towards the road that led to the hospital. The two shinobi did not speak of move for a long while, both their breaths caught in their throat ever since the incident that happened only barely a minute ago.

But then Naruto grinned wolfishly upon noticing the keys lying on the counter. Sakura's key's, to be precise. "Guess I'll have to get them to her, since you probably don't want to," Naruto happily chirped, snickering as Sasuke rolled his eyes and pushed his almost finished bowl away.

"Whatever, dope. I'm going home." And with that, the raven haired Uchiha stood from his seat, pulling money out of his pocket and handing it to the owner who thanked him. He shoved his hands back in his pockets and turned, starting to make his way home, ignoring the ringing of the idiot's cellphone. He had not even taken ten steps before his best friend called his name, and fast footsteps were making their way to him.

"What the hell do you what, Naruto?" Sasuke asked tonelessly, his features forming a frown at the grimace on Naruto's face.

"Oi, teme, sorry to bother you, but you'll have to give Sakura-chan her keys back. Tsunade-baa-chan just called me for an emergency," the blonde explained, sighing sadly. "And I wanted to be the one Sakura-chan would thank!" he whined, pouting like a child.

Sasuke rolled his eyes and scoffed. "No thanks, dope. I have other things to do," he muttered, turning to make his way home again, only to scowl as Naruto gripped his wrist.

"TEME! They're her house keys! Have the decency to bring them back so she won't be stuck outside all night, asshole!" his best friend snarled, slamming the keys down in his palm.

Sasuke muttered a curse under his breath, angrily turning around the other road that led to the hospital, and the stomping of the male amused Naruto so much that he just had to laugh. Sasuke's scowl deepened as he heard Naruto's laugh, but he said nothing. The Uchiha survivor sighed heavily, before dumping the keys in his pockets and keeping his eyes on the floor, occasionally mumbling incoherently under his breath.

And as he reached the doors of the hospital, he gripped them harshly, pulling on them with immense strength, only to back up a few steps quickly as the door flung open, nearly hitting him in the face. To his surprise, a pink haired girl stumbled onto him, her weight crashing completely onto him, making him grip her shoulders to steady her.

The girl looked up while mumbling an apology, but as she saw him standing there, she gaped. "…S-Sasuke-kun? What the—what are you doing here?" she exclaimed, utterly surprised to encounter him here.

"I was looking for you." Sasuke stated bluntly, fixing her with a almost-bored stare.

Her shock doubled over. "Looking for me?" she repeated, blinking in bafflement. "Why the hell would you look for me?"

Oddly and funnily, the question seemed to be aimed more at her than at him. He fetched the keys in his pockets before dangling them in front of her face. "You left these," he responded flatly.

She was puzzled, for a moment, but then a soft smile grazed her lips. "Oh, thank you, Sasuke-kun. That's very kind of you," she murmured tenderly, looking up at him with loving emerald orbs.

But before he could even bid his goodbye and turn, she grabbed his shirt with one hand, and his shoulder with the other, before standing on the tip of her toes to lean in and kiss his cheek. The movement had startled Sasuke so much that his head moved to face hers, and before any of them could even realize what was about to happen, their lips met.

Sakura, more than shocked to feel moist, plushy skin under her lips, opened her eyes in a flash, her round orbs widening like soccer balls as she became aware of the fact that their lips were clasped together. She pulled back, gasping as she put a hand on her lips, stammering a soft apology. "I—I—I'm sorry!" Her blush increased tenfold, and she gaped in horror. "I—I didn't mean to!" she sputtered out, her eyes widening in fear as she noticed how dark his face was.

He took a step towards her, and another, and another, but she couldn't even move even if she wanted to. She was frozen in place, completely horrified by what she did, and before she knew it, he was directly in front of her, staring at her with a dangerous expression that terrified her.

And then before she could even utter another word, Sasuke dipped down and smashed his lips against hers. She was shocked, and couldn't respond for a good minute. But finally, she managed to find the strength to lock her arms around his neck, and to kiss him back.

It was like this for a few long minutes, kissing and kissing until both couldn't breathe anymore and had to separate for air. It was only when their eyes locked again that Sasuke realized what he had done, and as he did so, he pulled away from her in a flash. "Fuck," he cursed, shutting his eyes tightly. "I'm—fuck, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to do that. Just—" He gritted his teeth, cursing again. "Just—forget about it, Sakura. It didn't mean anything. I didn't—I was stupid. I shouldn't have done that."

And then he left.

Back

to present

"What are you thinking about, Sakura?" she heard her secret boyfriend ask, pulling her away from his body to look at her.

She grinned in return, pecking his cheek. "About how this whole thing started. You remember after you kissed me at the hospital that night, eight months ago? After that, you were so angry at me, and acted so different. Everything you did, it made you so angry. Remember what I told you when I confronted you about it a month later?" she asked, her grin growing wider and his small smirk.

"Aa," he said. "Words that opened my eyes."

"A month, Sasuke. A god damn month. And you're saying you were simply having bad days?! No, I don't believe you. I think there's something that's been going on in your head ever since that night that we kissed. That you kissed me."

"Tch. I dont even think about that day. It was all a mistake."

He pretended that he didn't care. That he didn't remember.

"Your body didn't seem to think so."

She knew he did.

"I don't love you, Sakura."

The words were cold. Angry.

"Maybe not. Maybe you're just scared."

"And do you remember what I told you?" he asked in return, his smirk widening.

She smiled softly, giggling. "It's hard to forget, Sasuke-kun. After all, those words crushed my heart, but then brought it back to life."

"Scared of what? Becoming like you? A human so emotionally fucked up that cries at just about anything?"

He's angry again.

"No. Just a human who loves." She smiles bitterly. "Why are you so angry now, Sasuke-kun?"

"Because of you!" He snarls. "You're so goddamn annoying!"

She's the one who's angry now. "Why? Because I make you feel?"

He laughs coldly, and she feels the blood in her veins freezing, preparing herself for an earth shattering heartbreak.

"Fuck I hate it when you're right."

And then he sweeps her in to kiss her with everything he has.

"And that's when everything started," Sakura stated, kissing the corner of his lips. "It was the day that triggered the change in you—the change of you becoming a better man." She smiled softly, but as she opened her mouth to talk, they both shut themselves up upon sensing the chakra of somebody. Both sprang apart at an acceptable distance: Sasuke turning to lean on the bars of the edge of the roof, doing his best to look bored, while Sakura stood beside him, arms crossed.

They waited for it.

"Sakura? Oh, well it seems you've met the Uchiha earlier than planned."

Sakura grinned at her shishou, waving her hand off at the Uchiha as if he was an annoying fly. "And what an unfortunate thing that is, isn't it?" she teased, laughing lightly when Sasuke played his part and gave her the deathly eye. "I'm kidding, Sasuke. Geez." She rolled her eyes, satisfied when she noticed the amused smile on Tsunade's lips.

Perhaps the world would know of their relationship soon.

"It doesn't have to be that way. We could keep it a secret."

"We'd be living a lie! One we couldn't keep, even if we wanted to! I couldn't do that… Could you, Sasuke-kun?"

"…"

"I can't… we can't… It's not possible, Sasuke-kun…"

"Anything is possible, Sakura, listen to me—"

"No, you listen! We live in a real world, come back to it. You're hated by the village, untrusted and guarded. The council is still debating whether they should keep you, kill you or banish you. I'm one of the most trusted kunoichi of this village, a medic nin, and they would not stand the mere thought of me being with you. They will kill you if ever we do this, Sasuke-kun. If you follow your thoughts to conclusion, it will take us to a place we cannot go, regardless of how we feel about each other."

"…then you do still love me."

"It doesn't matter! I won't let them kill you for my sake. For our mistakes."

"You're asking me to be rational. That is something that I know I cannot do. Believe me, I wish I could just wish away my feelings, but I can't."
