I have not forgotten about this story!
Super short, but I'm going to try and get the next chapter up earlier.
"He's not a zombie!" Deidara yelled for the hundredth time as the men tried to pry Sakura's hands away from her eyes. He soon gave up though and she rolled away. Ever since she heard the voice she had refused to look at anyone and had decided to curl up into a ball and fall to the floor. She looked similar to a pillbug on its back as she rolled aimless around, her eyes covered.
"You never killed him, you dumb bitch!" Hidan yelled as Sakura rolled into him for the tenth time. He kicked her over to Kisame who just ignored the other man's tenth attempt at playing soccer.
"Are you questioning my awesome ninja skills?" Sakura asked, her eyes still covered. She had an abnormal fear of zombies ever since all of Konoha's ninjas had decided to pick similar costumes one year for Halloween. She had been on a mission the week before and came home to find the entire town overrun with zombies. No one bothered to tell her it was for Halloween, not even her own parents (both of whom attacked her as a 'joke'). Ever since, she couldn't stand the sight or even the mention of zombies.
"Well we all know you don't have any." Deidara replied with a roll of his eyes.
Sakura gave a feral growl before lunging on the blonde man. Something about him just makes her want to attack him and rip his hair out…
This plan failed when all, minus Itachi of course, lunged after the pink haired girl and pulled her away from the screeching man.
"You scream like a girl." Hidan commented with a smirk as he watch the man wipe some blood from his lip. Sakura had gotten one good punch in and was now doing an odd, triumphant dance, saying how "for someone with no skills she was awesome" or something similar.
"Well you look like one." Deidara hissed back.
"Better than acting like one, bitch." Hidan retorted, his hand on his scythe. Kisame just rolled his eyes at the chaos surrounding him. One fights ends and another begins.
"You both are idiots and you both are girly. The end." Sakura yelled, sliding in between the two men. She didn't care about their health. The two could kill each other for all she cared. She just didn't want to have to clean up the mess they might make – both in the kitchen and out of each other. She didn't want to imagine the nightmare that would result in her having to stitch up the two annoying men.
"Shut up!" Deidara screamed. This caused all the men, and Sakura and Hidan, to stare at him small smirks on their faces, minus Itachi the Tree.
"Way to prove her point, dumbass." Hidan said with a larger smirk.
"She seems to brighten up the place." The familiar voice said emotionlessly to Itachi who gave the slightest nod back in agreement. Yet again, Sakura froze.
"I'm hardly a zombie, Sakura. For me to be one would be a very complicated process not only involving death, but coming back from it. To do so would most likely have to involve Orochimaru in some way or another and he is a person I would rather not involve myself with again." He said his small part eloquently and without a hint of emotion, but Sakura really didn't care.
"So," she paused, "you don't want to eat my brains?"
"I don't there'd be much food there." Deidara said under his breath. Kisame and Hidan both nodded their heads in solemn agreement.
"No, Sakura, I do not need to eat anything, let alone brains. Perhaps you should be a little frightened of –," Sasori was going to continue, but the other Akatsuki members, minus Itachi, shook their heads frantically. "Never mind, do not be frightened of any of us. You have your ninja skills, remember?" He added, completely serious. Hidan and Deidara just rolled their eyes.
"You're right. I defeated you when I was fourteen-" "Not by yourself" Deidara interrupted. "-however I'm pretty sure I'd defeat you again, by myself this time." She said, giving the blonde man a smug look.
"You might be right, but I think that you should concentrate on your duties first. You don't want to give yourself more work to do." Sasori said calmly. Kisame stared at the puppet man who was treating the girl similar to a child. It was a very good idea…
Sakura though over her options. 1) Beat up the zombie who claims he's not a zombie and get more work or 2) live with a zombie and have less work.
"I'll let you live for now." She said nobly, nodding her head slightly. "But one look at my brain and you'll get it."
"He'll get your brain?" Hidan mocked, bursting out into laughter which Deidara soon joined in.
Thus started another fight which ended with Sakura running away from Hidan who changed into his skull form and began chasing her while yelling something about having an extremely small lunch….
So I might add some romance into the next chapter...
If do, what do you guys want? Hidan? Deidara? The Tree Man (Itachi)? Kakuzu?
