A/N: Well, since I finished 'be careful who you kill' I wanted to write another story about murder. But I wanted it to be sad and tragic at the same time. The plot bunnies attacked, and this story was born. Also, some of the stuff that Sasuke does was inspired by an episode of Criminal Minds I saw once.

These wounds won't seem to heal. This pain is just too real. There's just too much that time cannot erase. When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears. When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears. And I held your hand through all of these years. But you still have all of me.-Evanescence
Naruto cluched the pillow under his head and bit his lip. 'It's always like this.' He thought. He cluched the pillow tighter and moaned as felt a finger slip inside of him. "Ahhh...harder..." He growled. One finger became two and they quickly began to thrust into him quickly. Naruto looked up at his partner, whose stage name was simply Rocker. He wasn't a bad looking man. He had striking green eyes and wavy black hair that fell down to his shoulders.
Rocker leaned down and licked Naruto's ear. "Baby I can't wait to pound your ass." He pushed his hips forward so that Naruto could feel his erection and slipped a third finger in.
Naruto resisted the urge to roll his eyes. He honestly wished they had better lines. But sticking to the script was their job. "Do it. Fuck me." Naruto pushed his hips back and moaned loudly.
"Alright...cut!" Their director called from a few feet away. "Time for a break, guys. We'll finish this scene after lunch." The camera man turned the camera that was beside the bed off and started unpacking his lunch.
Naruto heaved a heavy sigh and pulled away from Rocker. He slipped on his loose street clothes quickly. 'It's always like this. But I guess that's what life's like when you're a porn star.' He scowled when he felt Rocker's arm across his shoulders. "What is it, Jake?"
"No need to use my real name, Kitsune." Jake smirked when he used Naruto's stage name like he always did. "We might be on break, but why don't we take that time to go somewhere private and make a little scene of our own?"
Naruto slipped out of Jake's hold. "On camera, you only get to fuck me because the director paired us up. But in real life, I would never let you anywhere near me. Your the kind of concieted snob I hate the most. So why don't you just let me have my fucking break alone?"
"Fine." Jake put up his hands in surrender. "Do what you want. But no matter how you look at it, when our break's over, your ass is mine." Naruto rolled his eyes and walked away. Every fake bedroom or living room set his company owned they kept in a warehouse for the actors and directors to use. The ventalation wasn't very good so the entire building smelled like sex, sweat and cigarrettes. Naruto hated it there. The smell, the sights and most of the people. But it was the first aldult company he'd worked for and he was stuck there under contract for the next two years.
Due to his looks, he'd quickly gained popularity that he didn't want. He was sometimes recognized by fans on the street. Most of those encounters ended with his having to fight them off because they got too confident with him. Sometimes he was targeted by gay bashers and porn prostesters. Those never ended too badly for him since he knew how to fight and defend himself. It wasn't like he wanted to be in porn. He just had nowhere else to go when he first showed up in Konoha city. And Foxy Media was the only place that would hire him.
When he finally made it outside of the building he took a deep breath. The eavening air was a bit chilly but it wasn't unbearable. Naruto looked up at the sky and smilled. Fall and winter were his favorite seasons. He loved being out in the cold until his body got numb. He knew it wasn't exactly healthy to do that, but somehow it made him feel alive. He sat down on the back steps of the building and pulled out his lunch bag. It was nothing special, just a brown paper bag with a couple of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and some fruit cups.
"Hey!" Naruto was lost in thought as he ate his lunch and didn't hear the man calling him the first time. "Hey you!" Naruto slowly looked up from his half eaten luch to see a middle aged man standing a few feet away from him.
Naruto raised and eyebrow. "Can I help you?"
"Yes. I'm with the group of protesters at the front of the building. I just came back here for a smoke when I noticed you." The man cleared his thoat nervously. "I wouldn't sit near that building if I were you. Are you aware of the perverse atrocities going on in there? Do you work somewhere around here?"
Naruto leaned agaist the back door. "I work here." The man took a few steps back and Naruto rolled his eyes. "Don't want to get close to my pervert germs?"
"You..." The man looked at Naruto with pure disgust and hatred written across his face. "Do you not realize the horrible things you do? You people are ruining our nations morale!"
Naruto glared up at him. "How about you go after the real perverts instead of wasting your time on us, huh? What about the pedophiles, rapists and child pornographers on the loose? I'm just trying to make a living so stay out of my fucking business!"
"You little fa-" Before the man could even get the whole word out Naruto was on him in an instant with his hand around his throat. He was about to punch him with his free hand when someone grabbed his writst to stop him. He growled and turned to see who it was. "Fuck! Let go, Jake!"
Jake shook his head and pulled Naruto off the man, who scrambled away brushing his clothes off like he'd just be touched by the plauge. "Kit, we're needed on set." Jake said quietly. "Just forget about that guy. He's probably just mad 'cuz he's got ass pimples or something."
Despite his anger, Naruto chuckled at the unexpected statement. "I don't think I want to know what he's got." He had to admit, Jake could be and asshole most times, but underneath it all he could be a little caring. The two men went back into the warehouse to finish their scene, unaware of the group of men quietly watching them.
"Damn." Naruto hissed in pain before gulping down a couple of painkillers. It seemed like it'd taken forever for them to finish their scene and needless to say, it'd taken a toll on his ass. He slowly pulled himself off the cum stained bed and made his way to the bathroom to clean himself up. The only thing he liked about his popularity was that it gave him special privilages such as his own dressing room and bathroom. He jumped in the shower and turned the water on hot, making sure to lather up his entire body before rinsing all the dirtyness away. It took about ten minutes to scrub his hair clean. Naruto took long showers everyday, but he knew no matter how hard he scrubbed he would always be tainted.
He slid down to the floor despite the water turning cold and buried his face in his hands. No tears ran from his eyes but he still cried. He almost always cried when he was done with work. It wasn't until he'd worked at Foxy Media for a year that he'd gotten his crying down to once a day, and if he was ever in a good mood, he could almost go a week or more. But having to give his body away and deal with overeager fans and protesters took it's toll on him sometimes.
When he was done with his shower he got dressed, packed his bag and headed to his bosses office. When he knocked on the door he cleared his throat nervously. "Orochimaru? Can I come in?" He could here someone moving around inside the room before the door opened to reveal his boss. Orochimaru was a tall pale man with long dark hair that always hung loosely around his face. He smirked at Naruto and licked his lips. Naruto fought down the urge to shudder and turn away. "Um, I'm done with my scenes for today, so I was just gonna head home."
"Why don't you come in, Naruto-kun." Orochimaru opened the door and led Naruto into his office. He sat down behind his desk while Naruto sat across from him. "Naruto, I've gotten alot of mail from your fans lately. They want to be able to spend a night with you, and are willing to make big donations to this company to make that happen. Now, in these times we could use all the money we could get. I could tear up your old contract and get you a new one."
Naruto sighed. "After signing that last contract you gave me I'm not to eager about signing another one." Orochimaru handed him the new contract. "Auction?"
"That's right. We'll have a private auction every saturday. The bidding will start at a thousand and whoever bids the highest will get to spend the night with you. Each person participating in the auctions will have a full criminal background check done on them and be tested for any venereal disease."
"I'll have to think about it." Naruto glared at the older man. "I'm just not too sure I could handle that."
"It's only once a week. You're pay will be at least be double what it is now. Maybe more." Orochimaru's eyes traveled slowly up and down Naruto's body. "It's not like you'll be doing anyrthing you haven't done before."
"Like I said before...I'll think about it." Naruto folded the contract up and stuffed it in his bag. Orochinaru stood up from his desk and walked around it to stand in front of Naruto. He pressed the blond up against the desk. "Orochimaru..." Naruto turned his face away. "I need to get home."
Orochimaru smirked again. "You know, signing that contract will shoot you right to the top. But we both know that's not what you want. If you want you could just stay here with me. I would love to open my home to you."
Naruto slipped away from Orochimaru. "Sorry. I really need to get going." Naruto ran out the office and made his way out the back of the warehouse. The sun had already set and the cresant moon was out. But the light it cast over the city was soft and failed to penetrate the shadows around every corner. He always left his bike out back and used that to get from home to work and vice versa. It was a good way to save gas and his commute never took too long. He hung his bag on the handlebars and undid the chain he'd brought to lock the bike to a pole beside the warehouse. He got on his bike wincing slightly when he sat down and began his ride home.
He decided to take his usual shortcut home and turned down a narrow alley that led to his apartment building. He hesistated when he saw a few men standing at the end of the alleyway, but didn't feel nervous until he glanced behind him and saw two more men had appeared. One of them was the guy he'd almost hit earlier. With a growl he brought his bike to a stop. "Heh. So this is how it is, huh?"
'It's that time again.' Sasuke Uchiha lay on top of his bed looking out his large window at the moon. His breath came and went slowly and steadily. His pale hand came up to his face and rubbed his sleep clouded eyes. After laying there for a few more minutes he got up off the bed and walked down the darkened hallway to his brother's room. His brother Itachi was in his bed, breathing softly just as Sasuke had been. Sasuke leaned down over him until their faces were just a few inches apart. "Itachi..." He wispered. "I going to go out for awhile."
Itachi showed no signs of life execpt for the steady rise and fall of his chest. The only sounds in the room was the repetative beep of the heart moitor and the mechanical buzz of the various life support machines hooked up to the older Uchiha. Itachi had been in a deep coma for a little over three years. He'd been taken away by an agressive nerve disease that took away his sight and his mind. He had slipped into a coma only a couple of months after being diagnosed. Sasuke subconciously knew Itachi would never recover, but he refused to let him go.
He smiled softly and brushed Itachi's hair out of his face. "You were so strong." He leaned down and kissed Itachi's lips. "I promise I'll fix you. I will give you your sight back. It'll help you. I know it will." Even though Itachi showed no signs of life, his lips were warm like they had always been, and Sasuke loved that. He missed the way Itachi would take him tenderly into his arms and kiss him when they were alone. Sasuke had always known it was taboo to do such things with his own flesh and blood, but he couldn't help but kiss him back. The feelings the two brothers had always had for each other had always gone beyond normal brotherly love. Itachi was the only man Sasuke had ever been with physically and emotionally. He pledged his heart and body to Itachi until the day he died.
"I'll be back soon." Sasuke stood up and grabbed his suitcase. It was a plain black case and lightweight. Sasuke always kept it with him because it was a good carrier for his tools. He stopped at the doorway and looked back at Itachi before leaving the apartment.
The night air was chilly but his long coat protected him from the cold. He tightened his grip on the suitcase and headed off toward the rougher side of Konoha where cops and good samaritans were scarce. It was always easiest to take down victims there. He tried his best to stick to the shadows. When he turned down a dark narrow alleyway only to hesitate when he heard voices coming from the shadows. His eyes zeroed in on a group of men in the middle of the alley standing around a hidden person. The men semmed to be taking turns hitting the person while screaming obscenities and hate words at him. Sasuke turned to leave until he caught a glimpse of the person being assaulted. It was a man about his age. He had disheveled blond hair and tanned skin. He also had what looked like a wisker tattoo on his face, three lines on each cheek. But what causght Sasuke's attention were his eyes. They were such a bright striking shade of blue that they practically took the ravens breath away. Those blue eyes locked with Sasuke's black ones for an instant before he fell to the ground when one of the men punched him in the stomach.
Sasuke clenched his fists and walked up to the group of men. "Hey. Step aside."
The men turned around and looked at him in annoyance. "Stay out of our business. This little cocksucker needs to learn his place." He kicked the blond in the stomach, making him gasp in pain.
Sasuke calmly reached into his pocket and pulled out his scalpel. Since it was dark in the alley the man didn't see the weapon until it was too late. He let out a sharp cry of pain and surprise when the blade sliced into his throat. Blood spurted out onto the mans friends and the beaten blond before he fell to the ground. All the other men screamed and ran. Sasuke knew he didn't have much time until the police showed up. He sat the blond man up against the wall and shook him sofltly. "Are you alright?"
The mans blue eyes were half lidded and cloudy. He looked at Sasuke with unfocused and dull attentiveness. Sasuke quickly realized the attackers must had forced him to take some kind of drug. He turned to the dead man lying a few feet away and gripped his scapel tighter. 'Let's not let him go to waste.'
Naruto groaned and tried to stretch, but stopped when pain shot through every part of his body. 'The hell?' He slowly opened his eyes and looked around. He was in a rather plain looking bedroom. The walls were painted light blue to match the color of the curtains and the carpet. There were no posters or decorations of any kind. He looked under the cover and blushed when he realized he was only wearing boxers, but he also noticed there were clean bandages on the parts of his body the ached. 'okay, so I left work, then some guys cornered me on my way home...' He scrunched his eyebrows in concentration. 'What happened after that? Everything's in a fog.'
The door to the roon opened and a man walked in. He had dark hair that framed his face nicely in the front and stuck up in the back. His eyes seemed even darker. Both those features clashed with his pale skin. He locked eyes with Naruto and smiled. "So you're awake?"
Naruto cleared his throat nervously. "Where an I?"
"My apartment." The man sat down at the edge of the bed. "I found you being harrassed in an alley last night and decided to bring to here for some medical treament."
"Oh. Thanks." Naruto said. "Who are you?"
"Sasuke Uchiha. And you are?"
"Naruto Uzumaki." Naruto reached out to shake Sasuke's hand trying hard not to show any signs of pain. Sasuke hesitated before taking Naruto's hand and shaking it slowly.
"Your soft." He wispered.
"Uh...thanks." Naruto closed his eyes. "Do you have any painkillers?"
Sasuke pulled a small bottle of pills from his pocket. "Here." Naruto took them with a grateful smile and swallowed two without water.
"Thanks. For everything. I didn't think anyone was gonna help me."
"Did you call for help?" Sasuke asked.
Naruto shook his head. "No. I can usually fight those guys on my own. I mean, it's not like I'm weak or anything. But a couple of them got me against the wall and made me swallow some kind of drink. I don't remember anything after that. I...I knew they would overpower me sooner or later. That wasn't the first time a protester picked a fight with me."
Sasuke nodded in understanding. Naruto suddenly gasped. "Wait, you said you found me last night? What time is it?"
"Shit! I'm late for work." He started to sit up but Sasuke put a hand on his bandaged chest to hold him down.
"You're not going anywhere in that condition." He pulled out his cellphone. "What's your bosses number? I'll call him and exlain what happened." Naruto reluctantly told him the number and waited while the phone rang. "Hello? This is Sasuke Uchiha. I have your employee Naruto Uzumaki. He won't be coming into work today. Yes, I understand, but he was attacked last night and is in no condition to be moving around. Yes. Uh-huh. He should be back to work within the next few days. Well, I apologise for the inconveniece, but..." Sasuke sighed and handed Naruto the phone. "He wants to speak to you."
Naruto gulped and held the phone to his ear. "Hello?"
"Naruto, you had better be pretty mesed up to be missing work." Orochimaru hissed. "How am I supposed to run a successful business if my stars don't show up?"
"I'm sorry. I'll be back to work as soon as I can."
"You better be. And you better be prepared to take your punishment." With that said he hung up. Naruto gave the phone back to Sasuke and closed his eyes. He hated to think of Orochimaru's punishments. He got them everytime he missed work or made any kind of mistake.
"You're boss was quite rude." Sasuke said. "Maybe he was just worried."
"Why would he be...oh yeah, there's some killer on the loose right? You'd think the police would have caught him by now. What was his name again? Eyesnatcher." Naruto remembered how the killings had stared about three years ago. The victims of the killer, all male, were always found killed in all kinds of ways from being stabbed to being poisoned. But one thing they all had in common was that their eyes were cut out.
Sasuke looked at Naruto and smiled. "But you're okay. You're safe with me."
Naruto smiled up at him. Sasuke stood up to leave. "I'll go make some breakfast." He left, leaving Naruto alone in the quiet room. Naruto looked around and noticed a small tv on a night stand at the foot of the bed. The remote was on the windowsill beside the bed, so he picked it up and turned it one to the news.
"Another victim of the Eyesnatcher was found last night..." The reporter was saying. Naruto turned up the volume. "The victim has been identified as forty-two year old Ken Myers. Myers was last seen in this area protesting Foxy Media, an adult video company. He was found in this alleyway with his throat cut and his eyes missing. His friends were with him when he was attacked but say it was too dark to get a good look a the killers face. They say they were just on their way home when it happened."
Naruto furrowed his brow when the victim's face was shown on the screen. "That's the guy that messed with me on my break..."
"Authorities are searching the crime scene for any clues that will lead them to the killer and hopefully he may be caught." The reporter continued. "We'll have more information after the break." Naruto jumped when Sasuke came back into the room holding a breakfast tray. He stared at the tv then slowly looked at Naruto.
Naruto bit his lip softly. "Sasuke...when you found me last night...did you..."
"Are you wondering if I saw the killer?" Sasuke asked calmly. "Or are you asking me if I am the killer?"
Naruto stared into the ravens emotionless black eyes. "What happened?"
"I fought those guys who were messing with you and they backed off. Then I took you back to my place. The killer must have struck after we left." Sasuke chuckled softly. "Do I really look like a homicidal maniac to you?"
"No." Naruto relaxed and closed his eyes. Sasuke set down the tray on the small dresser beside the bed. He ran his hand over some of Naruto's blond locks.
'His touch...it's warm.' Naruto thought.
"Naruto...if it's okay with you, can I just touch your hair for awhile?" Sasuke asked quietly.
Naruto looked up at his curiously. "Why?"
"It's just so soft. My mom used to run her hands through my hair when I was little to get me to sleep."
Naruto nodded. He could feel the painkillers setting in. They were numbing his body and making him drowsy. Sasuke hummed slowly as he ran his hands through Naruto's hair. Naruto smiled and leaned toward his touch. They stayed like that even after the blond drifted off to sleep.
A/N: So what do you think? Should I continue? Saying that I have fun writing this sounds weird considering the situations the characters are in...eheh.
Until next time...
