Yola mina! This is KiKi-chan with another story for yuh! I hope you like it. I wrote it a while back but never posted it cause I didn't think you guys would like it. Anywho I hope you like it.
It was a cold windy day with the pregnant grey clouds towering over the school, threatening to burst any minute. I looked out the window and watched the trees sway to and fro as if dancing for some happy reason. Today was anything but a happy day. I just wanted it to end.
The clock on the wall, which never lies, said that I only had fifteen minutes until the school day was over. This day always does this to me, the tenth of October.
"Today he would have been sixteen." I stated in a whisper.
"What did you say Pinky?" asked the most annoying boy in the school who also happens to sit next to me.
"Nothing chicken butt." I sighed.
"Are you sur-"
He was cut off by the bell.
I packed my bag and bolted out of the classroom before any fangirl tried to kill me. Why you might ask? Because Chicken Butt was also known as the most popular guy in school, Sasuke Uchiha.
Although we've been attending the same schools since the second grade and we were always at each others' throat like two lions fighting over a slab of meat. But never the less, he and I were friends.
As I walked down the street I wondered what kind of flowers to buy 'him'.
"Maybe I'll buy some lilies or white rose." I thought to myself.
"Who are you talking to Pinky? Casper the friendly ghost?"
"Ha ha ha, very funny Chicken Butt." I said dryly walking away until Sasuke grabbed my hand.
"Well lately you've been acting weird." He sounded worry though it didn't show on his face.
I yanked my hand away from him, "Because I can and who do you think you are grabbing my hand like that?."
Sasuke ran his hand through his hair which is usually an action he takes when he's trying to find a way to say something. " No I mean you've been acting weirder than usual since last year." He sighed " You're no fun when you're like this. Later hater." He said walking down the street.
"I don't hate on losers!" I shouted hoping he could hear me from the distance. Shortly after I enter home, I realized that what I shouted to Sasuke was really stupid.
Even though my house may not be as big as some of the people I go to school with, it is big enough for me and my parents. My room is very spacious and is painted in baby blue. I put my book bag on my desk and sat in my chair. I lifted my hand to play with my dragonfly pendant only it wasn't there. I patted my chest, there was nothing there. I looked for my silver chain that had a dragonfly with green gems down the tail. I searched high and low but couldn't find it anywhere.
"Where could it be?" I yelled.
In a matter of minutes my room looked like a typhoon passed by. Clothes were thrown all over the place and shoes were scattered across the floor. I changed out of my school uniform, into a plain black t-shirt with a navy blue fade away jeans and a pair of black low top converse and headed out of the door telling myself that I simply miss placed the thing I've been wearing since the day I got it.
I was walking to the Yamanaka's Flower Shop when I saw Sasuke hanging out with some of his friends… holding my chain in his hand.
I marched up to him, not caring that his friends were there and said, "Where did you that chain?"
"A store, duh!" Sasuke replied.
I gripped on to the front of Sasuke's shirt collar "Don't get smart with me Uchiha! I know you took it out of my bag."
Sasuke leaned closer to my face with a smirk plastered on his face, "And whatcha gonna do about it?" he questioned playfully dangling the chain in front of me.
"I said, give. It. Back!" I yelled tackling Sasuke to the ground.
"What the hell Pinky!" Sasuke shouted as he tried to stop me from getting the chain from him.
Sasuke's friends watched in amazement, cheering him on as we both tugged at the chain. Feeling the chain firmly in my hand, I pulled with all my might. Either I had pulled it too hard or Sasuke's grip was slipping because the chain flew out of our hands and into the overgrown grass of someone's lawn. The group of boys left except for Sasuke.
I got up and walked over to the patch of over grown grass, got on my hands and knees and began looking vigorously for my chain.
'It's the only thing I have left…I can't lose it now…not today.'
I heard someone walking towards me but I didn't have to look up to see who it was. I figured if I ignored him long enough he would get the message that I didn't want to talk to him or be anywhere near him for that matter. But of course, this was the most annoying boy in the world I'm talking about here so he did what I didn't want him to do. Sasuke sat down next to me.
"Is there something more you want from my pitiful excuse of a life?"
"Nah, you can keep your soul, I'll get the reaper to collect it later."
"If you're going to sit here and make fun of me, I'm not in the mood."
Sasuke sighed and without even looking I knew he was running his hand through his hair again.
"Look,I just wanna know why that chain is so important to you. I mean I could just buy you a new one since you obviously won't find it in this." He said gesturing to the wild grass around us.
I stopped looking in the grass and faced Sasuke.
"I can't just replace that chain, it belonged to him."Sasuke remained quite so I continued to speak." His name was …Naruto and he was my best friend. I loved him…but I never had the guts to tell him…and then the next thing I knew I never would get to tell him because he die and left me all alone."
That was the first time I ever told anyone about how I felt about Naruto's passing. Not even my parents knew. At that exact moment it began to rain heavily but I didn't care. A part of me wanted the rain to wash away the feelings I had and let me move on with my life but I knew that wouldn't happen, not as long as I still loved Naruto.
"Sakura? Sakura?" Sasuke called my name repeatedly, trying to get me to stand on my feet. "Sakura, come on. I gotta get you home."
"But I need to find it." I pleaded fighting against Sasuke who refused to let me sit.
"No. I will not have you looking in the rain for some necklace and catch the cold which you will blame me for tomorrow." Sasuke said sternly, he grip not loosening.
"It is not just some necklace." I glared at him, trying to stop my teeth from chattering.
Sasuke rolled his eyes at what I can only guess was me shivering, got up and began to stretch before he kneeled before me in the muddy ground with his back facing me. I looked at him in confusion, trying to understand why he put his back to me.
'Maybe I've gotten now his last nerve.'
"Just get on Pinky, I know you can't get up even if you wanted to."
At first I could feeling heat racing to my cheeks from embarrassment that he was right and than i was grateful that Sasuke couldn't see me. I crawled onto his back and wrapped my legs around his waist and put my hands around his neck just as i would do if i were to get a piggy back ride from anyone else.
'this is all for security. it's not like i wanted to do this.'
"You comfortable?" Sasuke asked standing still as he waited to confirmation.
I could feel the vibrations as he spoke. It was like feeling the gentle humming of a car that has its ignition on.
"Yea." I replied softly.
"Warmer than before?"
I nodded my head.
"Good. We'll be at your house in a couple of minutes." After he said that he began to jog to my house.
I could feel as Sasuke inhaled and exhale with each step. He hair smelt like green mint and I couldn't help myself. I inhale it's intoxicating fumes and sighed happily as I exhaled.
'Some boys smell so nice...'
"Uh Sakura?" Sasuke cleared his throat.
"Yes Sasuke?" I answer sweetly.
"Could you please stop smelling my hair?"
"But Chicken Butt, you know I love the way you smell especially when you wear that gravity cologne."
"If I didn't know that you weren't a fangirl, I would be really crept out right now." He commented.
We arrived in a matter of minute at my front door. It was hard for me to get off of Sasuke's back and it wasn't because he was a head taller than me but because I would lose his body warmth. When I was on my own two feet I realized that Sasuke's cheeks were tinted pink. I automatically raised my hand to his forehead, wanting to believe that it was due to him running in the rain with me on his back and not for the fact that i was standing before him wet clothes which clinged to me like a second layer of skin.
"Yikes! You're on fire!" I remarked.
"What can I say…I'm hot." Sasuke replied.
I opened the front door quickly and tugged on Sasuke's hand " Come inside and get warmed up before you get worse."
Sasuke gently removed my hand from his and shook his head "Sorry but I gotta get home, my mom is most likely calling the police right now to file a missing person's report. So I'll see you tomorrow. Bye."
I watched as Sasuke ran back into the rain and away from my house. It was only until I took a shower and changed my clothes that I remember that I was supposed to go and visit Naruto. It was tempting to go back out into the rain but it was already dark outside.
I kneeled at the side of my bed and began to pray,
"Hi Naruto. I'm sorry I couldn't visit you today but I promise it won't happen again. I know that if it was me that had die, you would have gone to see me no matter what. I lose the necklace or as you call it, 'the dragonfly of maturity' that you gave me. I still don't get why you called it that though… but anyway I'll talk to you later I really tired. The first thing I'll do tomorrow is go and visit you and I look for the necklace tomorrow too. Night Naruto, I love you."
