"Sakura?" Sasuke asked, gently touching her grimy cheek.

The girl looked at him blankly, and his heart fell.

Sasuke couldn't believe it.

How could this girl, who looked so much like their fallen teammate, not be the one?

He sifted through his memories and remembered the report that an ANBU had compiled.

Sakura Haruno

'Age: 17


'MIA/KIA UNKNOWN' was the status they put when a Ninja was unaccounted for, and didn't return within two weeks.

Then, the cell door slammed open, the metal ringing slightly.

Sasuke noticed as he was dragged out that the girl was being taken too.

Where were they going?

He got his answer soon enough.

They were pushed into a small courtyard surrounded by walls.

"Exercise" the guard said, shoving them in and locking the door.

Sasuke looked around the small confines.

Maybe he could escape....

He tried mustering up his chakra, but it was a futile effort, as soon as he gathered some, it drained away.

He looked down and saw that he had a chakra inhibitor on his arm.


That would make things much more complicated.

Frustrated, Sasuke kicked a rock to vent his anger a little.

He looked back and saw the girl staring numbly at him.

He walked over.

Gently brushing the hair out of her eyes, he saw that they were a pale green.

He turned away, the icy knife being driven further into his heart.

Then, he felt arms go around his waist.


The whisper from the girl behind him froze his breath.

He turned around to see the short pinkette crying quietly.

"Sakura" He whispered back, engulfing her in his arms.

"I'm so sorry" She sobbed.

"I never should have left"

Sasuke pulled away and cupped her face in his hands.

"No, you shouldn't have"

He pressed his lips to hers, knowing he should have done this a long time ago.

After a few seconds, he pulled away again, studying Sakura's face.

"Why didn't you recognize me in the cell?"

"Oh god Sasuke, I didn't know if it was really you, I-I thought I was imagining things. after a while here, your mind starts to play tricks on you"

Sasuke gathered her into his arms again, noticing how painfully thin she was.

"Don't worry Sakura, Naruto and Sai will save us soon"
