My Tactless Sweetheart
Hello! Just to assure everyone I'm still around! University has been keeping me super busy, so I apologize for the lack of updates! . But I do hope you all enjoy the latest installation to MTS. :)
Truth or Dare?
"Please tell me I'm dreaming."
"Sakura, you're dreaming."
"Goddamn it, this is a fucking nightmare!" said girl yelled in frustration while gripping her hair tightly.
"I'm really curious as to how this happened. I didn't even know he-"
"That's not the issue right now!" the pink haired girl snarled at her best friend. The blond merely shrugged her shoulders while smiling sheepishly.
"It kind of is. I mean, how did this happen?" Ino asked, gesturing to Sakura's body. Sakura's brow twitched as her face flushed to a shade of red even Hinata would be proud of.
"We got drunk. At Naruto's birthday party." Sakura said in the smallest voice possible.
"YOU WHAAAAAAAT?" was heard across Konoha.
"Wait, so does Tsunade know about this?" Ino asked, her brows slightly furrowed.
"I'm not even sure if I should tell Shishou." Sakura admitted shamefully.
Ino sighed while face palming herself. "Of course, the one time I'm gone for a mission, and something colossal like this happens."
"I know, I made a mistake." Sakura moaned as she chucked the pregnancy test stick into the garbage can. Ino only patted her best friend's back in sympathy as Sakura cried.
It had been Naruto's eighteenth birthday last month. Although they were still minors, Kakashi thought sake would've been fine for the party. Clearly, he underestimated the alcohol tolerance of inexperienced drinkers.
Despite being an apprentice to the Slug Sannin, she had not inherited her drinking skills. In fact, she was one of the first to fall. When one is drunk, they tend to become more susceptible to persuasion and provocation.
It was Kiba's insistence that they play spin the bottle.
It was Tenten's idea that they play truth or dare on top of that.
It was Naruto's dare that Sai must get laid.
It was Sakura's mistake for getting drunk, then agreeing to play spin the bottle truth or dare and accepting Sai's dare.
"I dare you to sleep with me."
In the end, Sakura decided it would be best to consult with her mentor concerning her... situation.
"Sakura, I thought I taught you better than that." Tsunade started, giving Sakura a disappointed look after she told Tsunade her story.
"You got drunk after one bottle of sake!" Tsunade thundered, slamming her palm onto the table. Sakura almost fell over in disbelief.
"That's all she cares about?" she wailed to herself inwardly.
Sai may not be overly perceptive about a person's feelings or needs, or know about emotions in general. But he does know when he is being avoided.
Although he does admit it was awkward to be around his female teammate for a while, she had never outright ignored him. But as of late, all he ever saw was the back of her pink head.
Whenever he tried to approach her, she would quickly turn away and say she had other duties she must attend to. But after a month of aversion, Sai had had enough. It was time he confronted Sakura of her abnormal behaviour and how he could fix their friendship.
Leaping up to her balcony, he let himself in easily. No matter how many times Sakura had scolded him and Naruto for entering her apartment that way, she had never made the effort to lock the balcony doors.
"So you're not gonna tell him?" Ino asked Sakura as she took a sip of tea.
Sakura chewed on her bottom lip for a bit before replying. "I was going to. But every time I even look at him, I start getting nervous. I know he has a right to know, but how should I tell him?"
"Simple. Tell him to take responsibility or Tsunade-sama will kick his ass."
Sakura sighed heavily. "But telling it to him that way would put more strain on our friendship even more."
"Yeah, but you running away from him every time he even looks at you doesn't help either." Ino pointed out bluntly.
Sakura moaned despairingly into a cushion she had been death hugging. She felt the tears start to pool in her eyes.
"I can't cry. I can't cry. I can't cry!" She chanted like a mantra.
"Alright, I'll... break it to him somehow tomorrow. I'll get a good night's rest, and be refreshed in the morning." Sakura said, a fake smile stretching across her face. Saying their goodbyes, Sakura left Ino's home, and roof hooped to her own.
Upon reaching her apartment door, she felt an ominous feeling come from the pit of her stomach.
"Oh God, please don't let it be morning sickness."
As she entered her apartment, the ominous feeling wasn't because she was going to puke, but because she subconsciously knew Sai was behind the door.
Before Sai could even finish saying her name, Sakura had vomited violently all over herself, him and her brand new doormat.
"Sakura-san.. are you sick?" Sai decided to ask, two weeks after the surprise vomit attack.
A vein popped on Sakura's forehead, but was unable to retaliate because she was too busy 'bowing to the thrown'. After that incident, Sai had made multiple house visits to check on her, but he finds her puking every time. Sakura wished he would stop visiting already.
When Sakura could finally breathe, she answered his question.
"No, Sai. I'm pregnant with your child." she told him in a deadpanned voice, then proceeded to puke her stomach out.

"Sai, what are you doing?"
"I'm stocking your house with buckets so you won't get vomit everywhere."
Sakura's brow twitched. She knew she vomited lots, but this was just ridiculous.
"Thanks Sai, but I don't need one in my underwear drawer."
- 2 months -
"Sakura-san, you shouldn't be working yourself so hard." Sai said in concern as he watched her heal.
"Sai, I'm pregnant, no invalid, now stop bothering me and go away." Sakura told him, a look of exasperation on her face.
"No buts!" Sakura interjected, turning around sharply to give him a warning glare. But as Sai left, Sakura couldn't help but smile at his concern.
- 3 months -
"Sai, what are these?"
"Maternity clothes." he answered brightly, a great big (fake) smile on his face.
"Why did you get them for me?" Sakura asked curiously, not sure of Sai's motives.
"I thought I'd do you a favour, since you're probably too embarrassed to buy them because you got fat." he answered just as brightly.
That earned him a week at the hospital.

Sai could only watch with mild disgust, as Sakura ate her strawberry ice cream with peanut butter, gummy worms, and pineapples with marshmallows on top.
"Are you sure you don't want any Sai? It's really good!" Sakura offered cheerfully as she ate another spoonful.
"It's quite alright. I'd rather not suffer from indigestion."
Against his wishes, Sai was forced to eat a bowl anyway.
- 5 months -
Sai's eyes snapped open in alarm and was outside the bathroom door in less than a second.
"Sakura? What happened!" he asked in concern, his hand on the knob ready to barge in.
"There's what?" Sai asked, worry etched on his face.
"There's stretch marks on my stomach!" Sakura wailed in despair before proceeding to cry hysterically. Sai almost fell over upon hearing Sakura's reply.
- 6 months -
"Sakura, what are you doing?"
"What does it look like I'm doing? I'm putting together the baby's crib." Sakura replied, not looking at Sai as she continued to hammer a nail in.
"You shouldn't be doing strenuous activities." Sai reprimanded before taking the hammer out of Sakura's hands and sitting her down on her bed.
"Let me do this. It's time for your afternoon nap."
Sakura rolled her eyes, resisting the urge to giggle. "Yes, daddy."
- 7 months -
"Sai, do I look fat in this dress?"
"Sakura, you're pregnant."
"Yeah, I know. But you haven't answered my question yet." Sakura said with a pout.
Sai had two choices. a) Tell her the truth, and get killed in the process. b) Tell her a lie, and live to see another day.
Sai decided to choose option B.
"You look absolutely stunning. You don't look like you've gained 100 pounds at all!"
Before Sai knew it, he found himself at the hospital. Damn him and his tactlessness.
- 8 months -
"Are you sure you're alright?" Sai asked for the umpteenth time, his brows furrowed. Sakura swears his brows were going to be stuck that way.
"For the final time, it was just a little kick. I'm going to live." Sakura told him tiredly. Sai had entered the paranoid expecting father stage, where every little noise she made set him off.
'And I'm the one who's pregnant.' Sakura thought to herself.
"For Pete's sake, I'm all-fucking-right!" Sakura snarled at him before punching him out.
'Ahh, peace and quiet.' Sakura thought contently before floating off to dreamland.
- 9 months -
"Hang in there Sakura! You're doing good!" Shizune told her encouragingly.
"GET IT OUT OF ME! RIGHT. NOW!"
"Sakura, you have to push! On the count of 3! 1, 2, 3-push!"
"You can do it Sakura!" Sai told her with a strained voice. He allowed Sakura to hold his hand for support, but underestimated how strong a woman's grip could be when giving birth.
"When.. this is... over... I don't... WANT TO HAVE SEX EVER AGAIN!" Sakura panted out before screaming the latter part of the sentence.
"Congratulations Sakura, Sai! It's a baby boy!" Tsunade said with a big smile as she held the newborn in her hands. Sakura's body visibly sagged in exhaustion, but had a faint smile on her face. Sai also sighed in relief, for his hand was finally released from its worse-than-death grip.
"Wait, Tsunade-sama! There's another one!" Shizune suddenly exclaimed in alarm, causing all eyes to widen.
"OHMYFUCKINGGOD SAI, I'M GOING TO BREAK YOUR OTHER HAND!" Sakura yelled angrily before the painful process repeated itself.
- 7 years later -
"Mommmmy! Touya painted on my dolly's faces again!" a pink haired girl cried, as she ran tearfully to her mother.
Said mother sighed tiredly. "Touya! How many times have I told you to not paint on Touko's dollies?"
"But they're ugly. I'm only making them prettier." he replied simply. Sakura's eye twitched, giving her husband a meaningful look. Sai made a small cough, as if to clear his throat before he speaking.
"Touya, you can't do that to Touko's dollies. Just because they're ugly doesn't mean you can paint on them" Sai told him.
Touya nodded in understanding while Touko only continued to wail louder.
Sakura's eye twitched even more.
"Sai... come with me for a moment. We need to talk. Now."
I really wanted to do a baby-fic, so I did. Aha, for those who're hardcore pokemon fans, you might know where I got the twins' names. xD
Reviews are immensely appreciated! :)
