I sighed and turned over my answer sheet on my desk after thoroughly double checking my answers. My history teacher Kakashi-sensei decided that a pop quiz on Monday morning was the cherry on top a perfect school week. I couldn't agree less and from the reaction of my class mates they shared my opinion. He sat upfront at his desk his masked face buried in his small orange book.
There have been a lot of rumors flying around the school about the contents of the book and from what I have heard it was not educational. On my right, my shy and timid friend Hinata was still working on her paper. Looking around I noticed that everyone was still working on their paper. Well almost everyone, Shikamaru was sleeping on his paper and Naruto looked like his brain was just about to burst. I chuckled; the test was not hard it was actually quite easy. I found almost all tests easy which was why I was considered something of a nerd amongst the school. It's not that I looked like a nerd and people didn't speak to me it's just that I was simply smart. I was something like a good kind of nerd, I guess. I have a lot of friends and people talked to me.
I placed my chin in the palm of my hand and looked at the clock upfront. Eight-forty five, twenty more minutes and history class would be over. I smoothed back a strand of my pink bubblegum hair that got loose from my ponytail. That was something else that made me stand out amongst everyone. My hair reached me in the middle of my back but it was pink! I don't know how I was born with pink hair when my mom didn't have pink hair and neither did anyone else in my family. Maybe I'm genetically a freak.
I didn't really know if I liked the color of my hair because although it is unique, I couldn't really hide or blend in a crowd like everyone else. Who else has pink hair?
Looking over at Ino I rolled my eyes when I saw that she was brushing her hair and reapplying her makeup. I watched as she applied mascara and mused at how she did it so skilfully. I personally knew nothing about makeup. I didn't want to either. If it's one thing about myself I am proud of it's my flawless complexion. I'm not bragging or anything but even I had to admit that I had great skin that needed no artificial makeup. The only thing I apply on my face is lip gloss.
My eyes were what I think made me look like a freak. Ino told me that she thought my eyes were gorgeous but I disagree. It's not that my eyes were just plain green; they were bright like emerald, almost shocking. I stood out without even wanting too. I looked up at the clock and frowned. Only five minutes have passed. I sighed and picked up my pencil twirling it in my fingers. I suddenly had this weird feeling as if someone was watching me. I shifted in my seat and looked around. I turned a bit in my chair and looked back, my body stilled when I saw a pair of cold onyx eyes glaring in my direction.
I looked back in front to see if his gaze was actually directed at me, it was. I turned back and met Sasuke's gaze once again. He was sitting forward in his seat with his hands clasped on the desk in front of him. He was finished already like I was, since he was also smart.
The heat of his gaze was really starting to rub off on me. Did I do something to offend him? I hope not. I had a crush on Sasuke for a while now, maybe about a year. Something about his eyes transfixed me. Sometimes I would see him in the hall talking to his friends, Naruto, Neji, Shikamaru and Kiba and I would just watch him and no matter how hard I tried to look away I couldn't.
I knew he probably hated me. He hated a lot of people he was not exactly friendly either. He glared at anyone who tried to speak to him or watched him and pushed away anyone who touched him. That was part of the reason people stayed out of his way but that didn't stop his fan girl from trying to pursue him it actually made them more determined because most girls tended to go for thee 'bad boys' . It also didn't hurt that he was not hard to look at. He was one of the hottest, sexiest and most handsome male I have ever seen in my life. He was downright gorgeous with the most beautiful eyes and black bluish silky hair that fell to frame his handsome face and cover his eyes making him look all the more mysterious.
I wish just once he would actually look at me or something. I seriously had to get a life because the guy obviously hated my guts. Maybe it was my hair. Judging from his dark wardrobe of black baggy jeans that rode low on his hips, his navy blue vest, his black hoodie and his black sneakers he didn't look like he was exactly fond of pink. Even his eyes were dark and my eyes were bright green. I must be everything he hated in a person. Bright and colorful. My wardrobe didn't help either, my blouse was white, my skirt which I rather favored from my others because it was short and flared out was pink and I wore pink boots with buckles that reached my knees. I'll admit I love clothes and was a bit picky when it came to certain styles of clothes.
We are like complete opposites. I watched as he continued to watch me with those gorgeous eyes. If only they weren't glaring at me. He was impossible to read his gaze intent and heated yet unreadable. He was just so stoic. I shifted my gaze from his nervously to look at Temari who sat beside him doing her test. I brought it back to his to see him still watching me and even though I didn't think it was possible his gaze was more intense.
I turned back around in my seat and exhaled the breath I didn't even realize I was holding. It was official, Sasuke Uchiha the guy I liked for so long hates me.
I pushed my paper away from me when I was finished with my test. Kakashi-sensei thought it would be good to spoil the first day of the week with a pop quiz. I looked up and glared at the man who was busy caught up in reading his porn. Disgusting. I looked around at everyone else who was still caught up in their paper.
I seriously didn't see what was so hard about the forty questions on the damn paper. Naruto looked about ready to blow up from over using the limited capacity supplied by his brain. Shikamaru was sleeping on his test as usual. The fool was so smart. Way smarter than me but he chose to fail.
Kiba was trying to see Hinata's paper, while the obvious girl was still writing her test. I looked across from Hinata to see that the pink haired girl, Sakura just turn over her paper signaling she was finished. Then she started to look around her giggling when she saw Naruto struggling for his brain not to go in overload. Something about her just. . .annoyed me. Everything about her was annoying. Her pink hair was annoying and who in the hell had pink hair? Her clothes were so bright and colorful and even though I couldn't see them now but I knew her eyes were a bright emerald green, sometimes they even looked like damn neon green. I watched as she raised her hand to move back a strand that came loose from her ponytail. Even that annoyed me.
She was just too damn bright, cheery and vibrant. The complete opposite of me. While my clothes were always dark her clothes were a different color everyday. I could only imagine how her closet must look like some kind of rainbow. Her blouse was a very bright and shocking white, her skirt pink and frilly looking and only good new was this girl managed to find pink boots with those shiny buckles hanging of it.
People referred to her as a nerd but they didn't treat her like one. Maybe it was because she didn't look like one.
For some reason I couldn't stop watching her and it pissed me off. Every time I saw her I just couldn't stop staring no matter how hard I tried. The way she walked annoyed me yet I always watched her, her voice annoyed me yet I always listened to her when she spoke and the sight of her annoyed me but I couldn't for the life of me stop watching her. My eyes always followed her wherever she went and sometimes I didn't even realize I was doing it.
I won't lie to say she was attractive because she was. She didn't even seem to realize it. I did and so did some other guys I always noticed were watching her like some starved dogs. I hated when they watched her the way they did and that was what pissed me off more. I was not supposed to care how guys watched her. She was just a bright, innocent and annoying girl. She was cute and nice to look at and that made me more annoyed.
I studied her long enough to notice that she didn't wear all that junk on her face the others girls wore like her friend Ino. I took a glance at Ino only to see her applying some kind of black shit to her eyelashes that only made her eyes look like a scarecrow. I looked back at Sakura and reluctantly studied her once again. Her complexion was flawless and her skin smooth. Sometimes I got the urge to touch her which irritated me and made me hate her more so I stayed away from her.
I watched as she suddenly tensed up and looked around as if she knew someone was watching her. She turned slightly in her seat and looked back and her gaze immediately locked with mine. I continued to glare at her and watched as she looked back to see if I was watching someone else and looked back. Her gaze held confusion and nervousness. Most people would have looked away by now but she held my gaze and seemed to be studying me.
Her gaze quickly assessed me then herself as if comparing us. She looked back up and her emerald gaze was so damn hypnotizing I couldn't look away even if I wanted to. Her eyes were so expressive and always gave her away. Just by looking in them I could always tell if she was angry, sad, happy, bored, uncertain and the list goes on and on.
There were always times when she came to school and looked happy and cheery. She always managed to fool her friends but not me. Her eyes always gave her away. They were times I knew she was watching me. I felt her watching me. Like in the hall when I was with my friends she would watch me. I guess maybe I annoyed her by being dark and distant just like she annoyed me by her bright and flashy personality.
She shifted her gaze from mine to Temari. Why the hell did this girl affect me so much? Damn annoying brat. My glare intensified when she looked back at me and turned around. Good. She probably is frightened out of her mind and thinks I hate her. Which I keep telling myself I do even if a voice in my head says otherwise.
Sakura exhaled a breath of relief as the bell for class to end rang. Kakashi got up and collected the papers and exited the classroom and everyone spilled out the classroom behind him to go for their short break. Zipping up her bag she placed it on her desk and hopped up off her chair to leave the class room. In the process of hopping up her pen flew from her lap and rolled under the desk behind her. She groaned in annoyance and turned around and stooped on the floor on all fours.
Grabbing the pen she stood back up and jumped in surprise when she was facing someone's chest. Looking up her gaze immediately locked with deep onyx eyes. She stumbled back a bit in surprise to see it was Sasuke and stood watching him. He was at least a head taller than her. To say she felt intimidated and small was an understatement. She felt completely overpowered like she was caught in the middle of a hurricane.
Heart rate was increasing and she felt like she was about to faint. The last thing Sakura wanted was to look like a fool in front of Sasuke so she gathered her wits and moved to the side so he could pass. That would be the only obvious reason he stood there. He was obviously waiting for her to move so he could pass but he didn't move. Sakura's body froze over as he stayed where he stood and watched her with those unreadable eyes. She was just about ready to hyperventilate from just the heat of his glare when he broke his gaze from hers and walked pass her.
Her breath caught in her throat when his arm rubbed against hers in the process and a tiny shiver ran through her body. He must of felt it too because he stopped walking for a small moment to look at her then proceeded out the class.
Sakura let out the breath she'd been holding and collapsed back in her chair. What the hell was that?
The rest of the day was pretty much event less and when school day ended Sakura was relieved and gladly went home only to plundered about the weird events that took place earlier.
He's watching me-He's watching me-Why is he watching me? I darted my eyes in his direction and looked away quickly when I saw that his gaze was still focused on me. I could literally feel it burning the side of my face.
I tried to focus on what my English teacher, Kurenai was saying but it was hard to listen or even think when Sasuke's gaze was practically boring a hole in the side of my face. It's worse than yesterday. I tried to think hard to see if I did something earlier to offend him but I never even once spoke to him. Or maybe he's glaring at me because yesterday my shoulder touched his or something or he just really hates my guts. That could be---
I jumped when a small paper ball flew on my desk from over my head. Looking back I saw Tenten motion for me to open it. Picking up the paper I opened it and expertly hid it between the pages of my book so Kurenai would think I was just reading my text.
Is it just me or is Sasuke really intent on glaring at you since you walked in the class this morning? I'm so glad I'm not you, he's scary.
I flipped over the paper and wrote.
I know. It happened ever since yesterday in history class. I turned around and he was staring at me.
Looking up I skillfully threw back the paper in a way that no one would notice. Almost five seconds later another paper ball was thrown at me. I unfolded it and read.
That must suck, since you have got this major crush on him.
I blushed until I'm sure my face was red and turned around to scowl at Tenten who was smirking. I turned back around and shredded the paper into tiny pieces. Was I that obvious? Wait. . .What if Sasuke knew I liked him and that's why he hates me. I hope he didn't think I'm one of his crazy fan girls who stalked him.
". . .class. See you Thursday for your next class."
I snapped out of my daze when Kurenai walked out of the classroom. I gasped when I felt a sudden weight on my lap. I inhaled and twisted to get comfortable, "Ino, you must think you weigh ten pounds."
"I'm not that heavy. Anyway, speaking of heavy, what's with those looks Sasuke's been giving you," her voice lowered as not to be heard by our classmates but her eyes were glinting mischievously. I rolled my eyes and shrugged, "I don't know. I think he hates me."
"I don't think so," Ino said after a short pause and a look in Sasuke's direction who was sitting down watching Naruto and Kiba argue with an annoyed expression on his face. Neji sat beside him also looking annoyed while Shikamaru sat behind them all, sleeping. As usual.
I raised a brow.
"I think s she m may be right," I turned to look at Hinata. I didn't even realize that she was beside me and also Tenten. I was so distracted.
"Look at it this way. He hates almost everyone in the school and almost everyone in this class except his friends, right?"
"But he doesn't go around glaring at everyone all day, he avoids and ignores them, he only glares at them if they look at him," Ino put her two index fingers at both sides of my head and watched me seriously like she did when she was trying to figure out what top to wear with her jeans.
"Why out of everyone does he choose to stare at you and you haven't done anything to him. I think he likes you but he just doesn't want to which is why he just glares at you."
Wow. Ino actually made sense. Maybe Sasuke did like me. . . "Ha Ha Ha!" I laughed out loud startling my friends. "Are you serious? Your theory makes sense but come on. Do you really think The Sasuke Uchiha would like me?" I lowered my voice so only they would hear me.
"Look at me. My hair is pink and my eyes are a weird shade of green. My clothes couldn't be any more colorful," I looked down at my green halter top, my black skinny jeans, my green strap shoes and the rainbow colored bangles on my right arm. My earrings were also green. "Sasuke's hair is dark, his eyes are onyx and his outfit. . ." I looked over to where he was seated. A black T shirt that would probably look like a dress on me, a pair of long black and grey plaid pants and grey converse shoes. I turned and looked back up at Ino. ". . .let's just say we're complete opposites."
"Haven't you heard the saying 'opposites attract?" Tenten asked me not really expecting an answer. I shrugged, "That's different . . . I think."
"Well whatever. We have got Biology class now. Let's go else we're gonna be late. You know how Anko-sensei gets," Ino pulled me up and pushed my bag in my hand. Hinata and Tenten followed behind. As I walked out the door I looked up to see Sasuke staring at me once again and I quickly reverted my gaze and followed Ino out the class. There was no way he liked me.
2 hrs Later
This is why I hate gym. If it was one sight that could spoil my whole day more than it already was, is Guy in his stupid, ugly, shiny, green spandex suit. The suit outlined things that I would rather die than to see.
"Alright my little youthful caterpillars who will soon blossom into butterflies to take on the challenges in the world."
His choice of words sucked too. Butterflies?
"Everyone get up and line up."
I got up from the bench and fell into line with everyone else scowling from the noise of their laughing and talking all at once.
"Good morning, fellow classmate," A voice to my right spoke too loudly. At once the gym fell silent and I could see everyone looking in my direction. I slowly turned my head to the right. My gaze was met by a freakishly vibrant and cheery one. I scowled at Lee and at his freakishly bushy eyebrows that seemed to move as if they were alive. His hair cut and the fact that he wore a matching green spandex suit like his role model Guy didn't help either.
I watched as he raised his hand and reached out as if to rest it on my shoulder.
"Do not touch me or ..." I narrowed my eyes at him and let the threat hang in the air. His hand froze in mid air and he just stood there."Your still standing there? Move."
Lee didn't waste any time. In less than a second he was at the opposite side of the gym.
Thud! I turned when someone suddenly ran into my side, I was definitely in the mood to kill someone now. All malevolent thoughts immediately fled from my head when I saw wide emerald gaze looking at me in shock with wide eyes.
"Ahh I uh . . . Sor sorry."
I watched amused as the poor girl stumbled over her own words. The girl was scared of me, though I couldn't understand why. She watched me and tugged and fumbled with her P.E shirt which was much too large for her small frame. It covered her shorts making her look as if she only wore a shirt and I found it extremely annoying that I found it appealing.
I watched as she looked away and turned forward to hear what ever guy-sensei was saying but I didn't miss the slight nervousness in her body language at being in such close proximity with me. I also didn't miss when she turned and glared at Tenten who joined her at her side.
Probably some weird girl mind reading or telepathic crap.
"Okay class. Today we'll-"
"Notice! Good afternoon. The school will be holding an emergency staff meeting so all students are asked "Notice! Good afternoon. The school will be holding an emergency staff meeting so all students are asked to collect their belongings and go home," The vice Principal's voice came over the school's voice system. Everyone started to scream and jump for joy running out of the gym.
She doesn't need to tell me twice. Finally I can get out of this hell hole. I turned and followed the fast moving crowd out of the gymnasium.
I watched as everyone ran out of the gym like animals and watched as Sasuke followed behind walking out of the gym. I turned to Tenten, "I cannot believe you!"
"What did I do?" Tenten tried to play innocent.
"You pushed me on Sasuke. He must hate me even more now," I groaned.
"Sakura! Tenten!" I turned to see Ino running to towards me at an alarming speed while Hinata walked behind. When she reached me her eyes were sparkling with excitement.
"So, did anything happen with Sasuke again?"
I blushed and growled at Ino, "No! There's nothing going on between us. Now, because of Tenten he hates me even more."
Ino raised a brow at Tenten, "Sakura's just being dramatic. I just gave her a little shove in Sasuke's direction, that's all."
"That's all! I collided with him! He looked angry."
We made our way out the gym and collected our books and bags while Ino ranted on and on about shopping and cute boys. Stepping out of the school doors we started down the long flight of school stairs. I let out a small yelp when I felt a shove in my back and I went tumbling forward. Thankfully I didn't fall but ended up in a slouched position over something.
"Oops!" Ino said.
I growled in my throat ready to kill Ino, "Oops! Were you trying to kill me?" I yelled back at Ino.
"Sakura!" my eyes widened when I heard Naruto's loud mouth. Looking up I saw Naruto grinning at me like a complete idiot, Neji watching me amused and Shikamaru laying on railing of the stairs probably sleeping and Kiba watching me. I swallowed and looked down and my eyes saw an all too familiar pair of shoes caught me eyes. Grey Converse? My eyes widened in shock, Sasuke! I fell over on Sasuke. . .again! I groaned and thought of murdering Ino. Now I know why she suddenly pushed me down the stairs.
Gathering my wits I flew off Sasuke, took up my bag and immediately apologized, "Sorry. . .again."
I looked up and his eyes were literally boring holes through me. I nearly cringed. It's official, Sasuke Uchiha hates me. I didn't get to even think anymore when I was suddenly dragged down the stairs by Ino.
"Bye Sakura!" Naruto called after me. I was too much in a daze to even answer.
"Why you, Ino-pig! I can't believe you." Ino ducked to avoid my heavy book bag which I swung at her head.
"Sorry, it was suppose to be more. . .romantic."
Tenten burst out laughing. Hinata looked at me with sympathy. Tenten swung her arm over my shoulders as we stepped out the school gates, "Don't worry, he'll forget. . .someday."
I lowered my head and sighed. Well it's not like I would have had a chance with him anyways. I'm just a ordinary and boring girl, the only thing that made me unique was my outrageous hair color.
When we were about to turn the first corner I suddenly remembered that I left my Biology book under my desk with our homework assignment in it.
"Shoot. I've got to go back, I forgot my biology book," I turned around.
"Okay, we'll come with you," Tenten said.
"No it's okay. I'll just meet you guys at your house in about an hour. I have to go home for something anyways."
"Okay," Tenten nodded and they all turned around and continued in the direction of Tenten's house. I turned and walked back into the school gates. I sighed in relief when I saw that Sasuke and his friends weren't there anymore. I quickly ran up the stairs and entered into the school building, thanking God that I didn't have to be humiliated once again.
"How can sponge bob live on a beach that is in a beach and how can a crab make burgers under the water. Won't they get soggy?"
Naruto was an idiot. That much I knew. I leaned back against the wall from my seated position on the railing. He and Kiba was having a very heated discussion about 'sponge bob.'
"Yeah! There was this episode when Patrick nearly drowned because he couldn't swim. How the hell can a starfish not know how to swim?"
Naruto shook his head in agreement with Kiba's statement as if he made some great scientifically discovery, "And who the heck lives in a pineapple?"
Neji who sat beside me shook his head at the two idiots. "What a waste of human flesh."
I looked up when I heard the school doors open and Sakura and her friends walked out. As per-damn usual I couldn't for some stupid reason take my eyes off her. As they got closer to us I then saw Ino suddenly push Sakura from behind and she stumbled forward and landed slouched over my lap. Ino muttered an oops. What a coincidence. "Oops! Were you trying to kill me?" Sakura accused Ino.
Naruto being the idiot he was shouted Sakura's name in a greeting. The said girl looked up and looked at everyone. She didn't even seem to notice that she was on someone's body.
She looked down and I think she groaned or something. She suddenly flew up and apologized.
"Sorry. . .again."
She looked up at me and I did what I did best, I glared at her. Her hyperactive and crazy blonde friend suddenly pulled her away and down the stairs, her other two friends following close behind. Naruto yelled goodbye to Sakura in his loud annoying voice.
I watched as they disappeared out the gate.
"Again?" Neji looked at me referring to when Sakura Said 'sorry. . .again."
I nodded, "She ran into me in gym."
Neji nodded, "Well, I have to go. I have to meet one of my relatives this afternoon." Neji's voice held a trace of annoyance. He never liked meeting new people or relatives. I nodded and he left.
"That makes two of us," Shikamaru got up from his laying position on the wall. I raised a brow. "You have a relative to meet?"
"No. I have a bed at home to greet," Shikamaru lazily walked out the gates. How the hell someone so damn lazy could be so smart?
"Well. Sasuke, Kiba let's go for ramen," Naruto chipped in cheerfully.
"Hell no," I answered. Kiba shook his head.
"Aww. Come on," Naruto whined. I shook my head. Naruto turned to Kiba, "Well it's not like you could eat more bowls of ramen than I can anyways."
"Oh Yeah!" I shook my head. Kiba fell for the trap. He was so gullible. The two rushed off leaving behind a trail of dust in their wake. What idiots. I hopped of the stairs and landed in the grass. I was about to leave through the school's back gate when I saw a flash of pink. Sakura was walking back into the school gates. She looked around her for a brief moment but from where I was she wasn't able to see me. She quickly went up the stairs and entered the school building.
I followed her. It was time to take action. I wasn't stupid. I didn't want to have this attraction to her but I did, so this just means I'll have to act on it because it sure as hell wasn't going anywhere.
Sakura sighed in relief when she saw her text book was still under her desk and not stolen. Pushing the book inside her bag she zipped it up. She started to leave the room when she felt like. . .she always did when Sasuke was watching her. She spun around and gasped in shock when she came face to face with Sasuke. Gulping she took a step back as she tried to read the foreign expression in his eyes, not sure wether to feel threatened or not.
She stepped back and he stepped forward. This continued until she was backed up against the door.
"Sasuke? I Is something wrong. I didn't mean t to f fall-" her words got stuck in her throat when he put both of his hands on both sides of the wall caging her in. She licked her lips nervously and saw that he trailed the movement with his eyes. Those gorgeous onyx eyes.
One of his hands came down to circle her hips and pull her tightly and possessively into him. "You are one damn annoying girl . . ." his mouth hovered inches from hers and Sakura swore she was having a heart attack. She could feel is warm breath on her lips.
". . .but I want you."
Sakura's eyes widened in shock and he brought his head down to hers and kissed her. He crushed her body tightly against his and ran his hands down the length of her curvy waist and legs. He licked her lips and slipped his tongue in her mouth when she shyly opened her mouth. He could feel her sliding to the floor and had to hold her up. She tugged at his shirt and tried to pull him closer which was impossible. His tongue tangled with hers in a heated battle which he won. He ran his hands over the curve of her butt and pressed her tighter against him causing her to moan.
When they finally pulled away they were gasping for air. Sasuke buried his head in the crook of her neck and inhaled. She smelled so sweet. He licked her neck then sucked on the tender flesh, leaving a mark on her neck. He kissed her one more time on her lips just to keep the taste of her in his mouth. He walked past her and stood by the door. She slowly turned around to watch him go, to tongue tied to say anything.
He stopped by the door and looked at her, the look in his eyes possessive, "Just so we're clear. Your mine, now. Only mine. I don't like to share."
He walked away leaving a shocked and unbelieving happy Sakura behind. After five minutes of standing and watching the door Sakura slowly walked out the class. Her walk soon broke into a run. Just wait until Ino, Tenten and Hinata hears this. The Sasuke Uchiha just declared me his.
Author's Note: Well that was it. I hope I didn't make too many mistakes. Anyway this was naturally a one-shot but I got so many reviews asking to continue it so I will. I just finished my recent story, Need you So Bad so I will be working on developing this one-shot into a full story. It would be much appreciated if you review. Constructive criticism is welcome.
