There's A Class For This
Chapter Sixteen: A Little Wiser
Sakura wasn't exactly sure how she was going to face the next day but that didn't matter since it was morning already and she was up and getting ready. She took her time with her normal routine. Making sure to take extra care of her hair, she decided against her normal make up. If those Uchiha brother's wanted to be in love with here they would have to do it the old fashion way and she already knew deep down she could never love Shisui. She stared at herself in the mirror, she had decided to wear her hair flat and down and no make up. She grabbed her book holder before leaving the room and walking down the stairs when she reached the kitchen Sai was already sitting at the table eating a bowl of cereal.
"Any word from mom?" Sakura asked grabbing an apple from the fruit bowl and taking a bite from it before hoping up on the counter.
"Yeah dad called last night said they would be home Thursday and that Shin would be coming with them," Sai said after swallowing a mouthful of food. It wasn't long until the two were in Sai's car and on their way to school for once on time. Sakura's stomach was doing flips in her stomach but was doing her best to not let it show how nervous she was. She made a silent prayer that the Uchiha's would be missing from school, though at the same time she didn't think she could stand the thought of never seeing Itachi again.
Sai parked the car and the two got out. "I'm gonna head to first period I need to talk to Genma-sensei about a few things," Sai said before waving goodbye to Sakura and heading towards their first class. Sakura on the other hand headed off towards where Naruto and Hinata normally stood in the morning.
"Well look who it is," Sakura inwardly groaned. She turned around a glare on her face as she came face to face to Konan. The blue haired girl had her hands folded under her breasts pushing them up making them look bigger then they were. Hidan stood behind her a grin on his face. Sakura rolled her eyes this was not what she had planned for her nervous day but hey why not get this out of the way?
"What do you want Konan?" Sakura asked making sure her annoyance was evident in her voice.
"I think you have something that belongs to Hidan," Konan smiled sweetly. "Or is he going to have to beat your pussy of a brother to a pulp?"
"Look Konan I know you're a bitch cause you haven't been laid in forever and no one other then Hidan want's to tap that," at this point a small crowed had formed around the two. "Also that thing that belongs to Hidan has been gone for awhile. Sorry buddy but I'm not a virgin." Everyone stared shocked at the pinkette. Sakura turned around and walked away. She honestly didn't care anymore about what any one thought about her. Maybe it was a little too much like the old Sakura she was. But at least back then she didn't let anyone walk all over her and she certainly wasn't going to let it happen here.
The bell rang letting Sakura know that she wouldn't be able to see Naruto or Hinata before she had to go to first period. She groaned before turning and making her way to first period. She stopped mid step. Itachi was in her first period. This would be it. This would be the first time she would see him since she accused him of not being human. She took a deep breath and finished her walk. When she got into the room she noticed that Sai was already in his seat, most of the class hadn't arrived yet. She smiled at him before walking up and taking her set. She sat down at her desk and pulled her phone out of her pocket.
Instead of loading up a text to send to Hinata or Naruto to let them know she was okay she sat staring at a blank text to Itachi. She didn't even know what to ask him or to say. Hey? No that would be stupid. Where are you? Not likely. Hey sorry about saying you weren't human yesterday. She had to resist the urge to smack herself. Hey I know the truth about your family and how I'm the only one who can break the curse and that if I accidentally fall in love with your evil brother you'll be damned to live forever and never be happy. Now that was ridiculous.
"Sak-" She looked up instantly. He was here. He was right next to her. He wasn't running. Well at least not yet. She felt her stomach leap into her chest. Never had she been so happy to see someone. It was like she needed him around. No it wasn't a need. It was want. She wanted him. She wanted him. That thought scared her for a second before she stood up knocking her chair over she flung her arms around his neck and pulled him closer to her. He was here. She forced herself to not let tears come to her eyes.
"I'm so so so sorry," she whispered. Itachi wrapped his arms around her waist and pulled her closer to him. He missed warmth. The warmth of someone. He closed his eyes and remember the woman who he had originally loved. Mito. The woman who he had given up on ever being with. He had wanted nothing more then for her to be happy. With Sakura... he had a chance of being happy. He had a chance of a normal life. The kind where he had a family and grew old with the one he loved. He kissed her forehead without thinking.
"We can talk later," he whispered before the two of them pulled apart and sat down. Sakura smiled at him before exiting out of the text to Itachi. She then opened one to Hinata.
Me: Hey I'm okay.
Sakura closed her phone before looking up to the front of the class. It wasn't long before her phone buzzed in her lap.
Hinata: Good. I heard you got into a fight this morning?
Sakura rolled her eyes before typing out her next message; Not really a fight... more like a verbal disagreement.
Hinata: Oh okay. Sasuke isn't at school today. Is Itachi?
Me: He's here.
Sakura then closed her phone and put it away for the rest of the class period not want to know what she should do about Itachi. She just wanted to do what felt right to her. And what felt right to her was to hold him in her arms and never let him go. Sakura risked a glance at Itachi to find him watching her with steady eyes. She smiled slightly and he smiled back before turning his attention to the front of the class.
The rest of the day went by quick for Sakura. It wasn't long until she was in P.E. surrounded by everyone. She pulled her hair up. Hinata walked next to Sakura as the two made their way to their spots on the basketball court. They stood alone neither of them talking until Ino showed up. "So I hear you know the truth?" Ino asked her blonde hair pulled up into her perfect pony tail.
"Ino," Hinata said. Ino rolled her eyes.
"Well if she knows she knows," Ino said nonchalantly. Hinata sighed before picking her leg up to work on stretching. Today they would be running most of the class period.
"Yes I know," Sakura said. "Though I don't really think it's a good idea to talk about these things."
"Well as long as Tenten's not here we're fine," Ino said stretching her arms out.
"Why can't Tenten know?" Sakura asked now looking from Ino to Hinata. Hinata sighed.
"Tenten's family... well they're hunters... she knows that there are magical things here she just doesn't know it's us. Her family has been here for a few years looking for the ones who are killers. It would kill her to find out that her friends are the one thing she's been looking for," Hinata said quickly since Tenten was making her way to the group.
"Hey guys!" Tenten said with a smile. Sakura watched her for a moment, actually taking in exactly how Tenten looked. The brunette always had her hair up even when she was sleeping. Her body was completely toned. Not even a single inch of fat was on her body all the way from her feet to her head.
"Alright class! Lets line up and start running!" Gai said pushing everyone out the door and to the track. Sakura watched for a second as the lined up. Ino, Hinata, Tenten and then Sakura. Sakura waiting for Gai to tell them to go and once they did Tenten took off. Sakura stared for a second before taking off herself moving at a much slower speed. Sakura thought about everything as she ran how did they know that Tenten was a hunter? Which lead her to think she still didn't know what Ino's powers were. Or who else in the group was different... or were they considered normal here?
After what felt like an entirety class was out for the day and Sakura had to admit that today was probably the most normal life had been for her since her move to Konoha. She sat down in the locker room and started to untie her running shoes. She looked up when Tenten plopped down next to her panting. "That was such a good class," she said leaning against the cool metal lockers. Sakura nodded still out of breath as she pulled her shoes off. The two girls changed before walking out to the main court yard together. "Have any plans for this weekend Sakura?" Tenten asked.
"Not that I know of. Is there another concert this weekend?" Sakura asked.
"Nahh," Tenten said shaking her head. "The group finally saved up enough money to start getting stuff to fix up the park so I'm sure that's what we all are going to be doing Saturday."
"Okay sounds like fun. I'm sure Sai and I will be there," Sakura said as the two made it to the rest of the group. Sakura was glad to be surrounded by the group. It meant that there was constant talking and always a way for her to put the conversation topic in a different direction. She nodded when ever someone would as for her agreement. Her green eyes scanned the area looking for a crow. She relaxed slightly when she realized he was no where in sight. But she instantly tensed when a voice called out for her. A hard voice. One that had terrified her, but as of late only in her dreams. The person that she had barely escaped. She gulped before turning around. This couldn't be real.
"Sakura," her eyes landed on his sea foam green eyes and she felt like her own life was being taken from him.
Ahhh finally a new chapter. My internet was down for quite awhile but now things are back up and running I should be updating more frequently. Sooo yay! Also I'd like to answer a review that was sent to me by a guest.
To Tsuki: Well I'm glad you found the fic appealing enough to read though to the latest chapter. Yeah trust me you don't need to tell me about the whole vampire thing. In fact I can't stand the whole vampire story thing. I think it's over used and I can't stand reading/watching anything to do with vampires. This was more for some of my readers who enjoy vampire esk things. I've never read True Blood (You mentioned this if your review). So I wouldn't have anything to compare this to. I know I have quite a bit of spelling and grammar mistakes but I refuse to have a beta. On multiple occasions I've had other take my writing and pass it on as their own so that's one reason, I also have to write on an array of different things anywhere from a phone to word perfect. Sometimes I'm lucky sometimes I'm not. I'd also like to point out that you said it seems like I don't remember what happened in my first chapters. I reread from chapter one to where I am now every time I go to write a new chapter. So I'm sorry that you think that you know everything. So I hope this answers all of your questions :) Thanks for reading!
Any who! Back to everyone else. So I bet now everyone's happy to see how things are falling into place. I like to do that add hints in little places and then finally have everything fall together. So Thanks for all the reviews for last chapter :) Hope you'll all still be reading!
