My story's time clock is based from my country's fall of events... Book 1 occured on February... Book 2 is now focused on Sasuke's graduation from college... In our country March is considered to be the 'Graduation Month'... all school levels end their school year in March... so that's why this story revolves around the said month...


This fictional series contains fluff, smut, yaoi, kawaii moments, drama, romance... etc.... a mixture of everything... This will be the first part of my so called "Uchiha Diaries"... a compilation of Sasu-Ita/Ita-Sasu stories, based on their individual diary entries... It's my project for this year (2010)... hahaha I really hope this project would be a success... if I dont get too lazy, that is... I mean I still have the on-going Sasu-Hina fic, My Sasu-OC fic... and the various attention-grabbing-out-of-nowhere-oneshot-ideas... hehehe... C'est La Vie!


This compilation of stories serves as a tribute for my favorite anime characters.... The hottest anime men that ever graced the anime world (in my point of view, that is)... The gorgeous Uchiha Itachi... and the ever handsome Uchiha Sasuke.... ^0^


Everything in this fic (the plot, scenes, food etc...) is a figment of my perverted imagination...bwahahahaha.... XD


Ita+Sasu and Gaa+Naru pairings... do enjoy :) R&R please... It's what keeps me going....


The entries shown before the start of every chapter are the basis of the chapter's stories....


UCHIHA DIARIES

Book 2

From the pages of Sasuke's diary


March 13, XXXX

Dear Diary,

Tomorrow is my graduation and nii-san is still not here, as he promised...

He seemed to have forgotten about me again... as always...


Itachi's Gift

Chapter 1 : Living Everyday With Something Stupid Called PRIDE

March 5

"Narutoooooooooo!!!!" Sasuke screamed as he jumped up and down. The blonde looked at his bestfriend who was bouncing about. The blue-eyed bloke smiled as Sasuke ran towards him. Their bodies jammed together as Sasuke crashed his lithe body to Naruto's unsuspected built and wrapped his friend in a tight hug... "Have you seen the bulletin board?" Sasuke asked excitedly, his obsidian orbs shining with delight. Naruto had to laugh out loud, Sasuke looked like a kid who got his first toy. "Of course I did, Suke... and I'm so proud of you..." Naruto purred as hugged Sasuke back. Sasuke just found out that he was graduating with latin honors... summa cum laude for his course in Industrial Engineering with Architectural units...

Sasuke was happy, not because of the honor attached to his name... but his graduation was a sign that Itachi was coming home. Kami, He missed his nii-san so much... the last time he saw Itachi was just a day after valentines... Itachi left the next day for his usual business trips, though he promised Sasuke he would come home for his graduation. Sasuke was excited, how he missed the long-haired raven to bits. He just couldn't think of any reason why Itachi needed to work... They were not getting any poorer... All of Itachi's businesses were increasing their revenues at very high levels. They had enough money to last their lifetime.

Sasuke actually pleaded Itachi not to go, but the elder insisted on continuing his business... Sasuke hated the fact that even though they were officially a couple, Sasuke still couldn't have Itachi anytime he wanted. Several days after Itachi left, Sasuke never received any phonecall from his lover. He started to doubt if Itachi ever thought of him while he was away. Maybe, it was just a one-sided love affair. Sasuke sighed as he walked over the school's parking lot to retrieve his car. Naruto would be riding with him, for he promised Gaara he would bring the blonde home safely. As he was walked towards his car, the smile from his lips faded into a sad frown.

Sasuke started the engine and slowly made his way to the cafeteria's entry where Naruto was waiting for him. The blonde smiled as Sasuke stopped over. Naruto got in the car and Sasuke immediately started the engine and drove off. Naruto noticed Sasuke was silent and serious. He was different from the bouncing friend that was extremely happy just minutes ago. "Suke, what happened to your smiles and giggles earlier?" Naruto asked as he touched Sasuke's shoulder. Sasuke sighed deeply, he looked at Naruto through his frontview mirror, blue eyes stared back at the black orbs. "Sasuke... spill it out... it's painted all over your face..." Naruto said as he poked on Sasuke cheek. The raven pouted and Naruto chuckled. "Is it Itachi again?" the blonde eyed his friend. Sasuke was quiet about his affair with Itachi... only Naruto and Gaara knew about their status. He sighed and nodded "Yes Naru... it's Itachi..." the raven sighed in defeat.

Naruto sighed with Sasuke, he wasn't used to see his bestfriend sad. Sasuke was now a different person... he radiated a certain kind of glow right after valentines... that soon faded off little by little as time flew by... Sasuke became even moodier than before. Being in love wasn't doing wonders for the raven-haired adonis... Naruto felt bad... Sasuke's lovelife was complicated. He can't even make his pretty blonde head understand how Itachi could stay away from his beloved. Even his ever serious Gaara, calls him like crazy when the redhead was in one of his business trips. Itachi was one hell of a complicated lover!

"Cheer up Suke, he must just be...um, well... very busy..." consoled the blonde which earned him a pout from the raven's pink lips. The drive to Naruto's house was short. Sasuke dropped off the blonde and directed his car towards the Uchiha mansion. Sasuke was assisted by one of the maids (whom Itachi insisted Sasuke needed to get, to help him with the housekeeping...) who opened the main door for him. He drove the his black Ferrari to the garage. As Sasuke got off the car, he spotted Itachi's old red Countach Lamborghini. He sighed loudly... Kami! He missed Itachi so much...

He went directly to his room, as the maids made themselves busy... Sasuke wasn't used to have other people at home. He was used to be alone... he lived alone for years, he actually didn't want any hired help... but Itachi insisted it's for his own good... so that somebody would take charge of his meals... Itachi forbade Sasuke from eating too much take out food... The younger raven sighed... the care was good while it lasted... 'Where's all the love and care now, nii-san? Don't you ever think that I might worry about you too...?' He asked himself as he buried his face unto one of the pillows that sprawled all over his bed.

He got his phone and made a slow effort to input Itachi's number... which he memorized so well... he stared at the number. There were countless times that he wanted to dial the number just to hear Itachi's voice... he even planned to get a different line to use to call Itachi with. But he never dared... he was all plans with no actions... Sasuke was afraid that Itachi might find him too clingy and might even be a bother. Sasuke sighed, his first relationship was too complicated and too scary... scary in the sense that he didn't know what to do. He didn't know if Itachi wanted someone overly protective or possesive... Sasuke was so sure he was going crazy!

Itachi never talked about their relationship after that memorable night... Yes, they made love... expressed their feelings for each other through their actions... but they never came to a point to talk about the rules of their relationship. Itachi was far too busy... maybe too busy to even think of him. The elder raven left right away after dressing on that fateful day. Sasuke sadly bit his lower lip... maybe this relationship was a mistake and a burden for his aniki... Sasuke sniffled a tear trying to escape his eye... "Nii-san... I miss you..." Sasuke slowly said as he closed his eyes tightly, trying to bear the pain that was suffocating him.

Somewhere in Europe...

Itachi was staring at the ceiling, he was resting... after 3 long gruelling hours in a meeting. He was relaxing his tired body and his mind... Itachi was playing with his cellphone when he noticed an unread text message. The message showed that he received it a couple of hours ago. He opened the message... it was from Naruto. Itachi's heart thudded... 'Please don't tell me Sasuke is in trouble...' he silently prayed. The text message contained just one line 'Itachi-san we need to talk, call me when you're free...' though the line didn't provide any info Itachi knew it concerned his otouto.

Itachi sighed. He was such a fool, such a dumb selfish fool. He left Sasuke after what they shared... didn't contact him in any way... he tried to ignore the need to be with his otouto at all times. Itachi was afraid, afraid that Sasuke might find him overly possesive in their relationship. He needed to think things over. Though every night as he take some time off to sleep, he only sees his otouto... his fingers would abuse the cellphone's keys and retype Sasuke's number over and over.. but never making the call in the end. He was a bad lover... he sighed to himself... if only things were a bit less complicated.

He dialled Naruto's number... after 2 rings the blonde was already on the line... "Itachi...how could you?" was all Naruto said. Itachi can hear the sadness in the blonde's voice. He answered, his voice firm and steady... "Do what?" he asked innocently and got asarcastic laugh from the blonde. "Itachi, don't you have feelings? Why the heck can't you call Sasuke for once?" the blonde yelled and Itachi cringed. He knew this was coming... Naruto was very protective of Sasuke. Sometimes, Itachi would think that Naruto was a better brother than him. He sighed... defeated... "I... I can't let our relationship affect my business..." he laughed sourly.

"Damn you Itachi! What kind of a lover are you? What kind of a brother are you? You can't just let Sasuke wait for you like a puppy... he is human... with feelings... with needs..." Naruto sighed, He can't believe he was scolding the great Uchiha Itachi... "Naruto... how is Sasuke?" he asked, the pain in his heart was sickening... he did miss Sasuke... much much more than he ever expected. But he was needed at work... he had no choice. "He's down and in agony... you just don't know how sad it is to look at him staring blankly into space and sighing deeply..." Naruto informed the raven. Every word painfully jammed straight to his heart.

Itachi felt like an extremely bad person... as Naruto ended the call. He thought that he was the only one suffering from the longingness. He wanted so much to call Sasuke everyday... he was just afraid... too afraid to lower his ego and pride... Sasuke might find him as a lovesick puppy... though he really was, it was the stubborn Uchiha pride that was keeping him from doing so. But as the saying goes 'Love conquers all...' Itachi dialled Sasuke's number. He took a deep breath as he waited... each ring was killing him... Finally a faint 'hello' was heard. Itachi's heart melted right there and then "... how are you koibito?" Itachi's voice caressed the endearment slowly.
