I apologize so much for being so late with this chapter. But anyway, other than my lateness due to my homework and midterms, this story reached over 500 reviews! I'm so happy! Thank you guys so very much! I am happy that you all loved the last chapter.
Disclaimer: I do not own.
After Sasuke kissed me for the second time on Friday night, Naruto just had to pop into the room and ruin things. I mean, really, it was going so well. I got two kisses from Sasuke, was told by Sasuke that he loved me, and was asked to be his girlfriend.
But of course, Naruto just had to appear. I didn't feel sorry when the television's remote hit him square in the face and left a mark-yes, it was my handiwork. It was then, after I hit him, that Sasuke decided it was getting late and that I should get home. Naruto, of course, complained about not getting help with the rest of his homework, but a glare both from Sasuke and I shut him up immediately.
And did I mention the goodnight kiss I had? That was one hell of a kiss we had on my doorstep. In fact, I still get goosebumps remembering how his lips felt against mine, his tongue dancing with my tongue, his hands on my waist and in my hair.
But little did I know that mommy dearest was watching us from the window. Questions started flying everywhere as soon as I entered the house. Hell, she even followed me around for half an hour, asking about how it happened, when it happened, and why the hell I didn't tell her.
Ten minutes more of her badgering and I told her the story. What my mother did next made her look and act like a total teenage girl. I followed her out of my room as she raced downstairs, grabbed the phone, jumped down on the couch, dialed Mikoto, and squealed the whole story out to her.
I shook my head at her before retreating to my room for the night.
"Sakura," my mother sang while waltzing into my room.
"What?" I mumbled into my pillow, wishing that the weekend could be longer.
"It's Monday morning! Time for school."
"You say that like Monday is the most awesomest day ever."
"Well, it would be if you haul your ass off your bed and get ready before Sasuke picks you up for school."
My head shot up from my pillow. "He's picking me up today?"
"Ya, I would have told you last night but you were already sleeping."
"Dammit," I mumbled as I tried to disentangle myself from my blanket before tripping over my feet on the way to the bathroom.
Monday mornings, aren't they just great?
"Good morning," I said once I opened the car door.
Sasuke smirked back at me and murmured a soft good morning before leaning over and placing a kiss on my cheek. I blushed at his gesture as he pulled back, turning the key to start the car. The nice pink tint stayed present on my face all the way to school.
In fact, the pink tint on my cheeks grew a shade darker when Sasuke got out of the car and came around to my side of the vehicle to open the door for me.
"Thank you," I mumbled as he closed the door behind me.
"Aa," he said, smirking at me as we approached the school doors.
"I'll see you in class," he said as he walked me to my locker.
"Ok," I said. His face got closer to mine and I held up a hand in front of his chest to stop him from coming any closer. "Not where people can see us," I whispered nervously.
Who knows how some people would react to the news. I might have to walk around with a taser to keep the wild beasts-fangirls-away.
"Fine," he said pouting slightly.
He is just so irresistible when he does that. I looked around and saw no one in the hallway except for one of the mathletes who took a corner into another corridor.
"Come here you," I said, pulling him close before placing a quick kiss on his lips. He was about to dive in and steal my breath away before I stopped him. "Later," I promised.
"Aa," he said stealing a kiss before walking to his locker.
I can touch her when I want, I can kiss her when I want, hell, I could bite her all I want (heh hickeys). Damn, life is good.
"The race is underway," Ino announced. "As we can see there are two teams facing off. Sakura and Sasuke on the right and Tenten and Neji beside them. Who will claim ultimate victory? Let's tally up the scores so far. Sakura and her partner pulls ahead from their score of Sakura receiving a hickey! But wait Tenten and her partner are catching up from the one incident in the dojo. But no! What's this?! Sakura is in the lead again for being locked in a bathroom with Sasuke, but Tenten is closing in on her. It's anyone's game as both teams are neck-to-neck in this race, heading to the finish line!"
I looked at the blond as she spoke into her soup spoon, one of her hands gesturing wildly to whatever she was trying to point out as she walked around the lunch table outside of the cafeteria. I mentally shook my head at her. If only she knew that I already won the race that she has so vividly imagined.
"Um," Hinata said, cutting in to whatever else the blond was saying.
"Yes Hinata?" Ino questioned with the spoon still held up to her mouth.
I looked at Hinata, waiting for her to continue, but she looked up at me, caught my eyes, shook her head, and mumbled out "It's nothing," before going back to eating.
I understood what she wanted to say immediately. She was going to stop the blond from rambling and say that Sasuke and I was already together, but she stopped, knowing it wasn't her place to say anything at all.
"I think what Hinata was trying to say was that I already won the race," I stated before popping a cherry into my mouth.
"Geez Ino, do you want me to go deaf?" I rubbed my ears gently.
"What do you mean you won the race?!"
Well, the cat's out of the bag now. "Sasuke and I are together."
"Wah?" Tenten asked, mouth open slightly.
"As in boyfriend and girlfriend?" I nodded in confirmation at Ino's question and she gasped.
"Since when?" she demanded.
"Friday at Naruto's house."
"And you didn't tell me bitch?" She threw her hands up in the air in disbelief.
"I was going to," I said.
"But?" Ino questioned, hands on her hips.
"I didn't want any headaches."
"Headaches?! You think I would give you a headache?!
"You are right now."
"Gah! I can't believe this! One of the single most important things happened and you didn't even bother to tell me!"
"Congratulations! You two lovebirds are finally together," a familiar voice said as an arm was slung lazily around my shoulders.
"Wah?" I asked confusedly as I looked at Suigetsu.
"You might want to buy a muzzle for blondie there," he said, jabbing his thumb in the direction of the blonde who was ranting the poor life out of Hinata.
"Maybe Kiba has one," I muttered, wishing the blond would keep her trap shut.
"You're just lucky I'm the one that overheard and not anyone else," he said.
"Mhmm," I said.
"Anyway, I think I should be going." I turned to look at him. "Your boyfriend is glaring at me," he answered.
I looked behind him and saw Sasuke walking towards us, his eyes focused on Suigetsu. "I guess you should," I said before saying goodbye.
"What was that all about?" Sasuke asked taking Suigetsu's spot.
"What? Are you jealous?" I teased.
He growled slightly at me and his eyes penetrated mine. "Relax. Suigetsu was just saying hello and warning me to keep that blond big mouth over there quiet or else everyone would know we are together in an hour."
Sasuke stopped his growling but still sat there with a slight pout on his face.
"I told you, relax. Suigetsu is like Naruto-just a brother figure in my life. There's no need for you to be jealous."
"I can't help it," he muttered.
"I know, I know. Uchihas are very possessive anyway. And I kinda like it."
"Aa," he said, a smirk appearing on his face.
"Now is there any way you could maybe get me another chocolate chip cookie?" I asked.
"Oi, Sasuke! Why didn't you tell me?!" Ino yelled, interrupting Sasuke and I and drawing attention to our table.
"Aa," Sasuke answered me, completely ignoring the blond.
"Hey, chicken butt! I asked you a question."
By now all the students were ignoring Ino and her random outbursts-thank God.
"Gah! I give up!" she snapped, throwing her hands up in the air. She slumped down into the space next to me and picked at her food.
"What's up homies?" Naruto asked, approaching the group. He plopped down in the seat across from Sasuke.
"It's all good," I replied before a chocolate chip cookie wrapped in plastic wrap was shoved in my face.
"Thanks," I said to Sasuke while reaching for the cookie.
"Aa," he answered.
"TEME! That was my cookie! You damn chicken butt!"
Sasuke just smirked in return and told me to eat the cookie-which I did after Hinata gave Naruto hers. Isn't she sweet?
"Did you hear Ino-san during lunch today?" one of the freshmen girls asked.
"You mean when she was talking about Sasuke-san and Sakura-san being together?" her friend asked as they passed Karin.
"Sasuke-san and Sakura-san make such a cute couple."
"I totally agree!" her friend nodded as they climbed the stairs.
A nasty scowl appeared on Karin's face and she made her way to the classroom to get her things. Sasuke and Sakura? Together? Bullshit. Those newbie freshmen girls didn't know shit. She would be best for Sasuke. He was popular, she was popular. His dad own a big company, her dad owned a company. He was good looking, she was good looking.
She grabbed her things and paused in front of the window facing the parking lot. Her eyes narrowed considerably as she saw Sasuke and Sakura in the parking lot. She watched as he made Sakura laugh before cornering her against his car.
The pencil Karin clenched in her hand snapped in two. She just didn't understand it. She should be feeling something right now. She should be feeling angry, jealous, but instead she was angry at herself for not being able to feel anything at all. Didn't she like him?
"Tch. Of course I do," she thought to herself.
She walked out the classroom still fuming, not at the situation but at herself.
So sorry once again for the lateness. So someone asked about me writing well smut and such things in this. I'm sorry to say that I do not write smut, lemons or anything like that. I hope you do understand that it is my choice to do so and I just am not really a person who writes those things.
On another note, this story seems like it might be coming to an ending. I am not saying how many more chapters left because I, myself, do not know how many chapters it will take to finish. Also, I seem to have two story ideas jumping around in my head. One for a SasuSaku fic and another for a NejiTen fic with minor pairings. I hope all of you would stay and read them once this story is complete.
