Rinnegan is what it is..

Sakura P.O.V

Jumping from tree to tree, I the infamous pink-haired ninja rushed to get to the land of Suna to visit Gaara on my way back to Konoha. Nearing the gates, I push more chakra into my feet to run faster. When I reached the gates I was greeted by the ones and only Temari and Kankuro.

"Ne! Sakura-chan!" exclaimed an overexcited Temari who tackled me to the ground.

I swear she's a second Naruto.

Amen to that.

"Hi Temari, Kankuro. How have you been?" I asked after quickly getting up off of the red sand.

"Hey Sakura. We've been good, but it's been way too long cherry."

Temari then grabbed my arm and proceeded to pull me towards the Kazekage tower.

"Come Sakura. We're going to visit my limp noodle of a brother. That's not Kankuro."

"Okay Temari, just don't dislocate my arm in the process." I said with a slight giggle. "Just know that I have to leave soon because I have a mission report to give to Tsunade, so I have to be quick."

"No. You are not leaving today. You're staying here tonight. You can leave in the morning."

"O-kay Temari. Whatever you say." I replied with sarcasm laced into my voice.

Entering the tower Temari told me to conceal my chakra and to wait outside of the door. She pushed the door open and I saw a long-time friend sitting in a chair on the other side of the desk facing the window that looks out to the village hidden in the sand.

Without turning around I heard Gaara ask: "Yes Temari? What is it that you need?"

"I would love for you to take that giant icicle out of your ass and turn the fuck around because I have a surprise for you." She said with the largest shit-eating grin on her face.

Turning around with an expressionless face as usual, Gaara looked at Temari and asked what the surprise is. Looking up, I saw a slight flash in his eyes that displayed an emotion of genuine surprise.

"Hi Ga-kun or should I call you Kazekage now?"

"Ga-kun is fine, Sakura." He said in a deep baritone voice that just made your insides jump for joy. He then walked around the side of the desk and came to hugs me.

"Gaara. I have a message to deliver to you from Naruto. He said to tell you, and I quote, Gaara became Kazekage before I became Hokage! I'll beat him one day. BELIEVE IT!"

Chuckling he hugged me tighter before whispering, "It's nice to see you again."

"You too Ga-kun."

Interrupting our special moment, Temari insisted that I stay the night, get a hotel room, and leave in the morning. Not leaving any room for argument on my part. So, I agreed to her prodding and left in the morning after a quick goodbye to the two brothers and the blonde and was on my way back to Konoha.

Pein P.O.V.

Looking out to my rain stricken country, I grab my black cloak and told my second in command, Konan, in charge of the Akatsuki in my absence. I jump through the window in my office and was on my way to Konoha. I have a cherry blossom to visit.
