It's filled with things that we take for granted.
Family, friends, and the people we care so much about. The trees, the sea, the air that we breath, we've become accustomed to.
Most of us don't really notice them until they're gone...
A lone cherry blossom petal fell from its place on a sakura tree.
It drifted from side to side, gracefully, before landing on the ground without a sound.
If anyone were there to see the sight, they wouldn't care – that happens every few minutes.
No one really stops to enjoy the beauty of nature here in a village within the Fire country.
No one, except a few. A few who appreciate what life has to offer because they know - it might not be theirs forever.
The Sun appeared from behind the mountains far in the distance, shining its light throughout the village of Konoha.
The trees seemed to have awakened from a long, peaceful rest as a slight breeze made them gently sway.
Many flowers scattered around replenished with colour and looked alive again.
The chirping of birds could be heard and the soft melody sounded like a song to tell the villagers that it was morning.
Deep into the heart of the silent town, a young girl had just awoken.
She never complained about how early it was, or how she didn't want to be disturbed in her sleep.
She only accepted the fact that she was no longer crept up in her dreams, but awake and in her own world.
She was just as compassionate and beautiful as the flower she was named after. Sakura.
On the other side of the village, an heiress had woken up, too.
A young lady who just wanted to be accepted in her highly prestigious clan.
One who changes herself to make people happy, because their joy is her happiness.
The Sun's rays came in through the window and reflected off her porcelain skin.
Her eyes fluttered open, and she smiled - a genuine smile. A smile that is very rare in her family.
A smile only she could give. Hinata.
Not far from that estate, a pair of eyes surveyed the room she was in.
Everything seemed to be the same, the same sunlight, the same soothing breeze, and the same scenery out of the tainted window.
However, the girl knew that every day, something would change and she should enjoy this moment while it lasted. This girl was determined to be as strong as she dreamed she would be.
Talented, skilful, and sympathetic were some of the many words that could be used to describe this kunoichi. Tenten.
In her large room, the daughter of a very important member in one of the most impressive formations in history had also awakened from her slumber.
She brushed the blonde locks from her face and stared at the ceiling.
Thoughts came rushing in and out of her head. Most about how free she could be if she tried.
The clouds outside her window were roaming around so freely, so why couldn't she?
A dreamer, she was. A dreamer that could make her own dreams become reality. Ino.
A final thought raced through her brain. She had somewhere to be. Honestly, all these girls had somewhere they needed to be.
The cool, crisp air withered around outside Sakura's door. She sighed and looked out her window.
Plenty of other shinobi were stepping out of their houses, probably to accompany others on their assigned missions. The village was covered by a thin mist that was barely noticeable. Still, she saw the slightest bit of it.
The low clouds reminded her of one of the last times she spent with Uchiha Sasuke.
He was the person she fell in love with all those years back.
He was the person that left her heartbroken on a bench in the darkness of the night.
He was the one who betrayed Konoha, team 7 . . . and her.
Wound up in her own thoughts, Sakura wasn't aware of the time.
"I have to get going. The girls are probably already there waiting for me."
Suddenly, she heard an ear piercing noise.
Something happened in the streets of Konoha – and it was right outside her door.
Meanwhile, the three other kunoichi were in front of the Hokage tower, patiently waiting for Sakura.
They've stood there with nothing to say since approximately sunrise.
Ino was the one to break the silence.
"Where is she? Does she have any idea what time it is?"
"Calm down, Ino. I'm sure she'll be here soon." Tenten spoke, easing her anger.
"Y-yes, Sakura – Chan is never late. S-she must have a good reason." Hinata added.
Ino toned down.
"Fine, but when she gets here, I'm going to –"
"BOOM!" Her sentence was cut off by a loud noise.
"What was t-that?"
"I don't know. Come on, let's check it out." Tenten said, dashing to where the sound was coming from.
Her friends followed.
Sakura reached for the doorknob hesitantly.
She curled her fingers around the cold metal and occupied her other hand to reach for her kunai on the table beside her.
As she slowly opened the door, her whole body was trembling.
The crash seemed serious-dead serious. Little by little the door opened.
What Sakura saw in front of her, made her heart stop.
The girls found their way to the street which Sakura lived on and were astonished in what they saw.
