Chapter 1 | In The Hot Springs
-No, not yet, but i am sure I will someday when he's ready to come back to the Hidden Leaf.
-But, Sakura, this guy always follows his own path, and he's in Akatsuki Organization, there's nothing you can do to change his mind.
-Shut up, Temari! Hinata looked with angry eyes at her.
-It's okay, Hinata. I know he loves me. A smile showed up on Sakura's lips on a dreamy way.
-Yeah, sorry, but I want a guy who's smart, sweet and hot! -Really, then i think you should pick Shikamaru! Tenten laughed and winked at her.
-Why not, he's damn hot, especially when he use his Shadow no jutsu or whatever he calls it, and I'm sure he prefer a girl who can stand on her own feet and lead a whole army in a war!
-I didn't knew Temari was in love with you, Shikamaru? Gaara looked with impressed eyes at his friend.
-Shut your mouth, Gaara! Shikamaru's eyes looked like a cat's sharp eyes. He hided his face, so his friends couldn't see he was blushing. -So, what about you, Tenten, tell us about your dream guy?
-OMG! I'm not sure to tell now.
-Oh c'mon! We all know it always have been Neji!
-Yeah, you're right about that, Ino, I'll not deny it.
-If you want some details about how he feels in bed, you can always ask Hinata! Ino laughed on a creepy way.
-I... I won't tell any of you, I... just stop.
-Never mind her, Hinata! Sakura covered over her.
On the other side, all the guys eyes focused at Neji.
-What? He looked at each one of them.
-You slept with her, didn't you, Neji?
-What if I did! Nobody of you guys owns any rights to ask me such a stupid question. Its my private life.
-Does she have big boobs? Choji sent some teasingly eyes to Neji.
-Shut the hell up! Naruto growled at Choji.
-Yeah, don't talk about Lady Hinata like this, Choji! Neji's eyes showed anger and dismay.
-She's my girlfriend you know, and if there's any of you who name her again, i'll personally fight against each one of you outside this house right here, right now, is that clear?! Naruto yelled and looked around on each one of them with eyes like Kyuubi.
-Why do you spy on the 5th Hokage' house? That voice could only belong to one person.
-Sasuke!? Naruto turned his head and saw into the face of his old friend.
-What are you doing here, again?
-Yeah again, Baka ya!
-Not friendly tonight, are we?
-Whatever! Naruto continued his spying into Tsunade's living room.
-What are you looking at anyway?
-That's out of your business! Sasuke glazed at Naruto, then he became more interested to see what was so damn cool about the 5th Hokage.
-W-What the hell! Is that Neji Hyuga?
-What the bloody hell is he doing there so late?
-Can't you figure that out by yourself. Naruto gave a deep sigh and just wanted Sasuke to shut up his big mouth, so none of them would be discovered by Neji.
-What the fuck... he just... no way!
-Kissed her, yeah, and she didn't rejected him, both so full of passion, and let me guess; too.
-That is really, I mean that's really insane!
-Insane you think, eh... I think it's disgusting to look at! Naruto turned around and began slowly to walk away.
-Hey, you shall see this, Naruto! Neji holds her up against the wall, and his fingers is moving fast inside and ...
-Shut the hell up, it's enough information for me! So disgusting!
-So, Naruto, I heard you converted Hinata!
-Shut up already! Naruto growled at him.
-Okay, then I'll keep my mouth shut, but, have you seen Sakura-chan lately?
-How do you care?
-I just asked you, man, so calm down! Naruto walked so fast he could with both of his hands deep down in his pockets.
-Why can't you just shut up for awhile!
-Why so grumpy, Naruto?
-Where the hell have you learned to talk like a waterfall? Not cool!
-Huh!? I just wanted to know a bit about Sakura's feelings for me, that's all.
-Her feelings? You gave a damn care for her feelings so many times, you even tried to kill her for 3 years ago, by then, you treated her like rubbish, so why care for her now, eh!? Sasuke was out of words for a while. In the mean time they just walked out in the middle of nowhere. Suddenly Naruto took a closer look at his old friend, then he saw, how sad his face expressed itself with deep pain painted in his face.
-So, do you really have true feelings for her this time?
-Believe it, Naruto, I truly have this time. Naruto could not speak, he was totally ran out for words.
The rain poured down.-What now!? Naruto stopped and looked at his friend who looked very disoriented in his face.
-Why don't you tell her so.
-Or you are afraid to tell! Naruto crossed his arms and looked at Sasuke with distrust in his eyes. That look of Naruto made him uneasy, but also some kind of inner guilt for all the evil he had offered Sakura through all these years.
He knew that she only tried to help him, but she did it
-Are you now blaming Sakura again? Naruto tried to catch his eyes.
-What's that suppose to mean?
-All right! The way you sighed at.
-I am afraid you know me
-Do you want to know why?
-Are you crying, Sasuke?
-I don't know what the hell you are talking about. Sasuke´s words came like a hissing snake.
-Just to be honest with you, Sasuke...
-I am not crying, you made me suffer when you started all this bullshit with your silly talk about Sakura! Naruto could see how Sasuke´s lips quivered even they were surrounded by darkness.
-I never thought you were this weak!
-I AM NOT WEAK!
-Then show her how much you care!
-Hell yeah! But before any of them started the fight, both of them were captured by Shikamaru´s shadow.
-If it isn't enough,
-Dammed, Naruto! This is
-Whatsoever, it was Sasuke who brought it up!
-Let go of me! A deep voice who belonged to Sasuke whistled after Shikamaru.
-Behave yourself like a friend and not as
-I am not your friend, and
|Thanks to "|
-Get along, guys! A bright but strong voice broke through the guys discussion.
-Stay out of this, Sakura! She stopped up and listened to the voice.
-Exactly! You are still annoying, but on a more special way this time.
A smile filled out his face. He
-Do you think it's funny, Sasuke? Naruto growled at him.
-In fact, yes! Naruto and Shikamaru
-Are you laughing at me? Sakura came closer to him, she wanted to take a deeper look into his eyes.
-Don't come any closer than this, Sakura!
-Silly talk! All three of you guys, leave us!
-We will, Sasuke, but if
-Just leave us, NOW!
-He's totally out of his mind.
Sakura felt her heart was beating faster and harder. She
-Always you tried to protect me...
-I- I... I always cared about you, and believed in your skills, and...
-Stop! I don't want to listen to all this crap, it's
Sakura fell backwards and pushed herself backward to get away, for she knew that he showed no mercy and she certainly wouldn't survive.
-Never mention my childhood again!
-Please, finish me off! She fought bravely not to cry this time. She could see a lightning in his eyes, it was strong, but suddenly she felt a breeze of misery and heartache in his eyes. Sakura felt a cold wind surrounded them. The rain has stopped.
Chapter 3 - Wild is the Wind
-I won't fight you, Sasuke! Naruto took a deep look into his eyes, as well they changed to
Chapter 4 - Explain Me What Love Is
-Shush... I feel me safe here in the arms of yours. She hugged him even more tight than before. He gave a deep gasp.
-Hey, you two troublemakers, why are you still here? Sasuke pointed it clearly out to Naruto and Gaara.
-Yeah... we won't leave Saku...
-Just leave us, it's okay, really, I mean it! Sakura smiled with tears in her eyes.
-Unless Gaara wants to stay and take a lesson in; how to kiss a girl! Sasuke laughed with a sly teasing glance at him. It was hard for Gaara to stay calm. But he kept his inner peace.
-Are you trying to be smart? Then I can tell you, that no girls wants to date such a freckled redhead orangutan like you with a stupid tattoo on his forehead! Gaara was untouched of Sasuke's opinion of him.
-That tattoo stands for LOVE! A word you'd never will come to learn, no matter how much you try.
-You think I'll never come to show Sakura, what true love is? I can tell you, that you're so wrong!
-Hm...! Gaara turned his back to Sasuke and began to walk home.
-What was that all about? Naruto looked from one to the other.
-Come back, you coward! Gaara was gone already.
-Stop acting like this, Sasuke! I do not want to have more shit with you! So behave yourself decently in the front of a real Lady. Sakura wouldn't interrupt none of the guys. She looked nervous from Sasuke to Naruto. The two guys were looking at each other like two fighting lions.
-Haven't you got enough damage, already Sasuke?
-No way! He has disgraced my honor in the front of Sakura!
-Stop to act so selfish, man!
-This redhead demon only want glory anyway, but certainly not from me!
-C'mon, grow up! Are you okay, Sakura-chan?
I'm fine, thank you, Naruto-kun. She blushed.
-Of course, she's okay, she´s with me! Sasuke found Sakura´s hand and hold it safely into his big hand.
-Allright! Then i'll leave you two alone. But remember these words, Sasuke: If you ever try to do something strange or worse, kill her, then I'll make sure it will be the last you ever did in your whole entire life! Do you understand me clear enough!?
-Yo, Naruto! Take a look! Sasuke lifted up Sakura in his arms and walked to the nearest tree. He pushed her up against the tree trunk. He led her legs around his waist.
Sakura clutched tightly around Sasuke's neck. He groaned a bit as her strength were enormous. She was full of desire. He kissed her, as she never have felt before. Naruto could see how their tongues were playing merrily against each others.
Sasuke glared out of his right eye hook. He knew that his friend could not resist the temptation to stare at them.
-Are you trying to convince me, how to kiss a girl, foolish monkey ass!
-Can i tease you with this, Naruto? He looked at his old friend. Then again he licked Sakura´s neck. Sakura was a bit shocked, but she let him do it.
But instead to walk straight home, Naruto swung off by Tsunade's house. He wanted to know, if Neji has broken up with his old granny Tsunade. But she wasn't alone, he was still there. They did nothing, just hanged out on the floor in the living room on a carpet with a kimono around their bodies.
-No, don't do it, Naruto! A deep voice sounded behind his back, and a big hand was planted on his shoulder. Naruto could recognize the voice immediately.
-Ero Sennin? But why are you here?
-I had an agreement with Tsunade this evening, but... but... this little gnome came on visit before me, and there was nothing, I could do. I saw how much she desired him, and he's only a boy like you! Jiraiya's voice cracked.
-You still love her, don't ya!? Naruto starred at his Sensei with sadness in his eyes.
-Yeah, I guess so... but...
-You don't have to explain it. I have the same feelings for Sakura, and tonight her and Sasuke... they kissed with so much... yeah, just like those two there! He pointed down at Tsunade and Neji.
-Oh i see! A sad glance came over Jiraiya's face.
-NO, Naruto! Jiraiya jumped as fast he could to protect Neji. STOP!
-Not over my dead body! Tsunade jumped in the front of Jiraiya to protect him.
She stretched out both her arms and hit Naruto so hard he flew out of the door and landed in her pond. All the water in the pond disappeared and Naruto lay deeper than the pond. He could not move as much as a limb of his body.
Tsunade slammed Neji out of her house.
She walked out on her terrace and sat down on the railing. She stared out over her ground, while she saw the sunrise, and wept bitter tears.
On the way home with Naruto, Jiraiya observed two shades of grey up against the wall upside his house.
-What the hell are you doing here on my ground? Growled Jiraiya very irritated. Sasuke's eyes transformed into Sharingan eyes.
-None of your business, old man.
-No, Sasuke, this is Master Jiraiya, do your best and respect him. Sakura´s nervous voice tried to calm down her boyfriend.
-Don't give me instructions, Sakura!
-Yeah, he's Naruto´s Sensei, or he think he is, but in fact it is Hatake Kakashi.
-Doesn't matter, silly boy! I was asking; what the hell you're doing on my ground at this time?
-I am so sorry, Master Jiraiya. Sakura bowed with full respect.
-Don't bow for him, he'll do all in his power to slaughter all members of the Akatsuki Organization, Sakura!
-But... but i thought you had leaved this Akatsuki Organization for long time ago, because it do bad things for you, Sasuke.
-I'll not discuss these things with you, Sakura! If you want to be my girlfriend, you shall accept it.
-Never! She yelled with full lungs into his face.
-Whatsoever, it's really not my problem! By the way, Sabaku no Gaara, had the chance earlier today, why did he not arrested me at this time?
-But it is your problem, Sasuke, can't you understand the meaning of this? Why are you always so arrogant ? Sasuke couldn't answer right away. His eyes was still focused on Jiraiya.
-Listen to your girlfriend, and try to find a reason, why you're came into the Akatsuki Organization.
-I know that already! Don't waste my time with silly talk, is that understood? An anger burned inside of Sasuke.
-I prefer you don't gives me any kind of order at my own ground, Uchiha Sasuke. If you listened closely after, you could hear a slight growling deep down from Jiraiya's belly of anger.
-W-who's this guy in your arms, Master Jiraiya?
-Can't you see that? It's your best friend, Naruto. Her eyes became big.
-I can't tell you.
-Get lost, before I call the reinforcement. Jiraiya walked into his house. Outside the house, Sakura and Sasuke could see the light from the lamps out of the windows.
-What do you think, happened to Naruto-kun? Sakura had tears in her eyes.
-I have no clue or maybe i have. Earlier we visited Lady Tsunade's house and saw Neji there.
-OMG! So it is true that he visits her?
-How do you know? However, i think he walked back to her house and tried to fight against Neji.
-Wow, he's brave, for Neji is too strong for him. Sakura shook her head.
-Nah, or maybe it was Lady Tsunade.
-How do you know?
-Easily! Neji always uses his Byakugan. I could not see his veins was effected by his Jutsu.
-Yeah, that's right. So you mean it could have been Tsunade who did this, but why?
-To protect someone. Let's talk about something else. He came with a silly smile.
-Huh?! About what, Sasuke? He came closer to her. He held her very tight, so she could hear his beating heart.
-Did you know, I have loved you since we were kids and long time before we started on the academy... I guess, it started on an evening were we visited the Sport Festival with our parents... I was eating an ice-cream, when I saw you at the first time... the blue flower in your pink hair... oh, blue is my favorite color. Sakura, you're so beautiful. If there're a day I'll never forget, it is that day, you rescued me and Naruto, the same day I was cursed by Orochimaru. you sacrificed your long soft pink hair, as I adored so much, also you got beat up... and...
-But you protected me with your life, Sasuke, even you couldn't walk, you fought for my sake, but I also prevented you from killing these guys...
-Yeah, that's what you can call true love and not to forget true friendship in a team.
-The best team like Kakashi always said. Team Kakashi!
-Did he? I see. Sasuke smiled. He took her away from his body, so he better could see her sweet adoring green eyes.
-What? I mean, why do you stare into my eyes with running tears?
-Huh!? Tell me!
-Not now. Come let's go. Jiraiya have banned us from walking on his ground, as you remember. He smiled through his tears.
-Ah yeah. She giggled.
-Hey, first, come here. He gave her a deep special kiss, so her heart gave an extra skip.
Sakura opened up her eyes. Sasuke's tears ran slowly down over his cheeks. Sakura closed her eyes again, and felt a happiness she never had felt before. Sasuke gave slip on her.
Then he looked deep into her eyes.
-I love you, Haruno Sakura.
-Ditto! She cried too. Finally after all these years, she got confirmed that Sasuke loved her.
-It's nothing, Naruto. Now you shall rest. I made some special tea for you, some tea Tsunade teached me, for long time ago then.... His voice cracked over.
-You don't have to explain it. I am sure she loves you.
-How can you know? He turned around and saw deep into his old students eyes.
-I have instincts, ya know. Naruto smiled.
Ah, from the nine tailed, I guess.
-Exactly, and that's why I know too, that I found true love in Hinata.
-Yes, you have, boy, and never let go of her. I mean, raise a family, Naruto. You two are meant for each other.
-Just like you and Tsunade.
-Now i know you're lying. He mumbled.
-You think so? Can you then explain me, why she protected you against me?
-That's unfair, Naruto.
-No, i don't think so. I saw her right through her eyes. You didn't saw her tears?
-In fact no.
-Pervy Sage.... Can't you see this love between you and her is unbreakable.
-Huh!? What are you telling me?
-Invite her out and try not to stare at her chest and pay her billings. Be normal and not a pervert! Show her your inner feelings, so she knows, that you love her with your pure heart.
-But, what about that kid she saw?
-You mean, Neji?
-He means nothing to her. She just wanted to have someone to adore her, so she not felt loneliness. Give her more attention, tell her she's beautiful and that you adore her. Show her some respect.
-How can you know so much?
-As kid i was always everywhere, and there was a day i listened to one of Granny's conversations with Lady Shizune. Man i can tell ya, she told Shizune everything about her feelings for you.
-Ah so sure, you're my Master! Both of them giggled so loud that Sakura and Sasuke glared through the window.
-Wow! Naruto is in good health again.
-Why are you still so surprised about that, Sakura? He shook his head.
-C'mon let's go already. I have a special place to show you.
-Shush! I can't tell ya yet.
-Please! Her eyes begged him for an answer.
-Nope! He kissed her nose.
-Come with me!
-Awesome! Is this place yours, where you sleep, eat and hanging out?
-Yup! This is my special place where i live, and no one knows this place, yeah, except you.
-Ah, it's beautiful, Sasuke. She walked against to the waterfall. Her fingers played with the water. Sasuke came behind her and hold his arms around her body.
-Stay here for awhile.
-I'm begging you! He kissed her neck. His arms fell down over her body, and he had a soft grip around her hips. Sakura got goosebumps over her entire body.
-My clothes! She gave a gasp.
-No problems! We can take it off and we can dry it with a bonfire.
-What? You kidding me! She stared with big eyes.
-Nope, I'm not kidding at all. Now she felt his soft lips against hers. Slowly Sasuke took his shirt off and right after her top.
-You make me feel like this! He gave her a tongue kiss.

Chapter 9: The Beast Inside Of Me
Chapter 10/Part 1 - The Five Kage: The Judgement
Chapter 10/Part 2 - The Five Kage: An Unexpected Direction
No one could see what actually happened. They just heard a deep painful roar which belonged to the Fourth Raikage.
Chapter 10/The Five Kage/Part 3 -
The Blindness in the inner Eye
The Raikage felt a deep pain as the sword of Sasuke´s Kusanagi had hit him. The outer part of the sword had burned through the flesh of his chest. The blood spurted out of the mouth of the Raikage. His eyes tried to get focus at Sasuke. All he could see out of his blurred eyes, was two satisfied eyes which his mouth was wide open and laughed with the most self-mocking arrogant laughter he ever had heard throughout his long Shinobi life.
Mizukage Mei gave a deep cry which sounded like a mad screaming cat. She opened her mouth wide open and glowing lava splashed into the face of Sasuke, but he managed to hide behind Susanoo. In a hurry she looked down at the Raikage. Tears flowed over as she had some hidden feelings for this strong masculine man, even she knew he only served his country and had no time for romantic in his life.
Naruto, Kakashi and Gaara reacted immediately.
-There's no way for you to escape this time, Uchiha Sasuke! Gaara´s voice sounded powerful but also very dry and deep, as he tried to hide his anger. All three of them attached Sasuke at once, but of course he knew that already. Everything glowed purple around them and Susanoo looked stronger and more powerful than ever.
-W-What the heck? Naruto and Gaara starred with blindness in long time up on it's face.
-Move on! We have no time to take a break in this situation. Kakashi yelled.
-But, what the heck happened? Naruto wanted to know.
-This is Sasuke´s perfect Susanoo and we won't confronting him and be standing here and stare like three stupid mannequins. Trust me! Kakashi was ready and removed his headband from his left eye to his forehead. His eye glowed red and the Sharingan eye stared at the enemy. In the beginning Sasuke´s target was Naruto, Kakashi and Gaara, but suddenly the giant Susanoo run over the heads of all three of them.
-NANDA!? Naruto turned around to see what happened behind him. Sasuke ran right past his three friends without notice them. His gaze was fierce and showed an indirect hatred.
In the house of Jiraiya
-You can't keep me here like a bird in a cage, old Baka!
-Old baka, you say, huh! We're on same age, Tsunade, never ever forget that, and...
-In bad mood we are, eh!
-Why do you think i'm in a bad mood, Jiraiya? I will tell you.
For the first; My Team needs me, i'm the Hokage and Uchiha Sasuke concerns under my village.
For the second; I'll beat you to one big beef, if you don't let go of me immediately!
-Why haven't you done that already for long time ago?
-BAKA! You puts me in a bad situation! I dammed love you, and i can't hit you, when you look like this, baka ya ro! Jiraiya looked at her with tenderness in his eyes.
-You mean that, Hime? He walked against her and hit her mouth with a sensual kiss.
-Stop it right here! I have no time... no time for this... she enjoyed him, but also she had strength enough to slap his one cheek.
-That hurts! He showed her a sad mouth.
-Your lessons, old Baka! When i'm done with Uchiha Sasuke and this case of mysterious, i'll show you the bed.
-Ohhhhhhh..... His eyes smiled and his mind became very dirty.
-Spare it already, old man! Let's go!
-What's going on here?
-Granny? Naruto ran to her.
-Tsunade-sama! Uchiha Sasuke is hunting ghosts now! Gaara´s face looked deadly serious.
-He's totally out of mind! Naruto starred as Sasuke´s moves. He turned around in circles like he was surrounded by something. The other friends couldn't see anything and might think that he was crazy, but his eyes showed Mangekyou.
It was a challenge for each one of them to get through the giant Susanoo. All of them flew many meters away. Naruto kept on to get through, so he could talk some sense into Sasuke´s brain. Naruto spotted his old friend's eyes glowed red.
-What's he up to? Naruto clenched his teeth hard together and flamed yellow. Once again he was slammed back by the Susanoo.
-Enough already! Naruto changed his strategy and headed straight for the Susanoo, nothing could keep him away. A loophole was visible and he managed to get through. Sasuke had not yet seen him as something invisible caught his attention. His eyes was like in blindness.
-Nooooo... Naruto-kun!!! In same second Naruto turned round and got a view of this girl which mean everything in the world to him.
-Hi-Hinata-chan, huh!? How came you here? No, i am seeing ghosts like Sasuke, she's definitely on the hospital, it can't be...
-Naruto-kun, do not attach Uchiha-kun, he´s surrounded by some of the Akatsuki members and...
-No, they're dead, all gone!
-Yeah, but it's their spirits, believe me. Hinata ran straight to him and blocked the road and looked deep into his blue eyes.
-How it this possible? You here, and what's that nonsense about Akatsuki spirits?
-Believe me. I see them. You have to believe me. The story about me... you have to wait to get another day. She tried to smile as she was excited and happy to be with him again and in his presence.
Chapter 11/The Five Kage/Part 4 -
Fight For Your Freedom
-I... I... I love him and I... no, i meant, don't judge him to the death! He's a kind and caring guy.
-Caring guy, huh? How can you put it like this, girl? She has it from you, Lady Tsunade! Raikage growled and his eyebrows flew to his forehead of anger and pointed at her.
-Don't mock with me, Hatake Kakashi!
It made Sakura more nervous than before. She just wanted to get over this and move away with Sasuke, before Madara showed up his ugly face. Kakashi sensed her. He knew her deepest to each one of her bones. Her feelings for Sasuke had always been extremely sensitive. And now finally he confessed his feelings for her after all these years since their childhood. Of course Kakashi wanted Sasuke to get some kind of punishment, but suddenly not the death. A talented Shinobi like him, you have to search for ages. Only Itachi could surpass him. He knew after all, that Sasuke worked hard in his childhood years to be the best of best, but also he knew that, Sasuke only fought hard only to kill his brother in revenge. Kakashi had to believe that he can change or maybe he had changed a bit by bit. Maybe love was the only cure for this lost child. Kakashi removed his headband from his left eye, to get a better view. He looked deep inside Sakura's eyes. She felt it right away and stared back.
-It seems none of you fools, have observed we're dealing with a dangerous and very crafty shinobi. The Raikage was still pissed.
-Let's end this for all. It will be like Kakashi-sama suggested.
-...Hey wait! That means you'll let go of this treacherous killer machine, although I have to admit he has a sexy hot body. However, he's still a damned Uchiha! The Mizukage´s eyes became small like a cats. She licked her softly pink lips with the tip of her tongue. Raikage looked at her mouth with big wet eyes.
-You all looks like mess! As it's me, he tried to get rid of, it will be me, who has the last word in this case anyway. So, i'll support the proposal Kakashi and Lady Tsunade came up with.
-I disagree!!! He also tried to kill my brother! Raikage came back from his dream place and raised himself up with so much power, that the table crashed.
-He'll be watched night and day the first year. Kakashi commented.
-T-The first year day and n-night? You can't mean that! Sakura looked in the eye of Kakashi then Gaara.
-We offer this chance to Sasuke as the last solution of all of this complicated mess, he left behind his back. Gaara didn't blinked at all. He nodded to Kakashi as a sign. Kakashi disappeared in two minutes and came back with the guilty prisoner.
-Sasuke-kun! Sakura screamed through.
-What's he doing here? Raikage pointed.
-We want to hear Uchiha Sasuke confess his guilty conscience. Gaara nodded.
-Don't you have anything to say, Tsunade? Mei hissed at her.
-I already did. Both Hokage and the Kazekage agreed with one another. So, that's three against three, as we're six Kage in here.
-Naruto-kun? Sakura gasped.
-Yup, i will be the 7th Hokage, right! That means my vote will count also. It will be four against three.
-NO! That doesn't count! Raikage growled right up in the face of Naruto.
-But i gave him the title this morning in all secret. Sasuke glared at his old friend with open mouth.
-Sorry, Sasuke, not this time, but...
-I don't care any longer, Naruto. It would never go with an Uchiha as Hokage. The inhabitants in the Hidden Leaf has always looked down at my clan like dangerous creatures with no heart. I guess you have deserved the title of the Hokage. Congrats! Some sad black eyes turned away from Naruto´s blue shiny eyes.
-Haha! I must laugh. To be Hokage is mostly paperwork and listen to all peoples grumbles on all strange times at the day.
-You make no sense, Tsunade-sama! Why are we here, huh? To listen to nonsense! I thought those rules we had as Kage was unbreakable, but it seems you all give a damn. Raikage raised himself over again. His eyes flashed.
-IF you crossing my paths just one single time, Uchiha Sasuke, you're so dead. I'll let this right arm of mine go right through your heart! He turned around and walked away.
-You're so cheap, Tsunade! Mei looked at her once more time before she ran after the Raikage.
-What about you, Onoki-san? Gaara asked with a kindly voice.
-You already know you have my full support, Gaara-sama. I count on all of you. The 3rd Tsuchikage bowed his head and leaved in respect.
-You took the last step, Naruto-kun. Gaara came up with a grin.
-I guess i did, but i can't let my brother end up like this. I said so many times before; When i make a promise to those i care for, i never go back on my word, that'll always be my ninja way. Naruto wasn't smiling at all. He caressed Sakura´s cheek and gave Sasuke a friendly pat on the shoulder.
-Promise to take care of Sasuke. Naruto nodded to her.
-I do. She tried to smile through her tears.
-Dammed all of you! No one asked about my feelings, my meaning. A cold breeze blowed heavy through the room.
-Your meaning about what, Sasuke? Kakashi looked him in the eye.
-You already knows, so don't ask so foolish and cold.
-My my, here we go again. You don't own as much as a gram of rights to make such a foolish statement, Sasuke. You should be glad, that no one wants to see your head separated from your shoulders. Just to be honest with you.
-Like the hell i want to rebuild my fathers stupid policestation. Who do you think i am?
-Yes, Sasuke-kun, do as they tell you, i am begging you!
-No! None of you have any clue how it was to be me as a child. It was an eternal struggle to get my father's smallest attention. When finally he took the time to see my skills, I failed greatly. When I tried to correct my mistakes, he turned away and said these words; You will never be as talented as your brother. It made me, it .. it made me so sad ... it hurt me so badly. But he should see me today, i became one of the strongest...
-Yeah, but would you have won this abstract fight between you and your brother, if he hadn't surrendered himself in love to his beloved baby brother? Kakashi hit right through the heart of Sasuke.
-How-How can you say...
-Itachi was my friend also, just like you and Naruto. We played together as kids. Been there for me when i lost my father. In ANBU Ops, we were more than only friends, we were like brothers. We cared for one another. That is what true siblings do. You should...
-Shut up! Just keep your damn mouth closed, Sensei! You were not brothers of blood, so you don't know a damn thing to be cheated on by your own flesh and blood! I killed him. He deserved it. First he killed every single member of my clan, then he played my enemy, and in the end, he just leaved me alone in this misserable place with nothing! I am alone, lost... and...
-Shut up, Sasuke. I already told you for many years ago, i'm your friend, your brother, and i won't leave you behind. I am alone in this world too and have been that, since the first day i was born! You know that, but that doesn't give me a reason to be cruel, evil and put my friends in danger. I give it a fuck, i won't give up on you and i never had, even i think you're stubborn and deserves to be punished. I will always be here as your brother and save your ass from death over and over again.
-You really are stupid and own a very bad memory, Sasuke. But i will gladly remind you; That's because i am your friend!
-No... Sasuke turned around and walked out.
-Where do you go? Sakura yelled at him.
-Where i belong.
-Huh!? They all walked after him except from Gaara. He stayed back and closed his eyes for awhile. He needed to rest after many days with bad sleep. The silence made his eyelids fall. He slept.
Outdoor Tsunade and Sakura had a smaller discussion.
-Lady Tsunade. I can't agree with this observation of Sasuke day and night. How can we have a private life?
-What do you mean? Tsunade wriggled with the left eyebrow.
-Me and Sasuke. Well, you said i should fight for him, and i did, then...
-True! But you and him has to be separated this year, until we know we can trust in him.
-Well, i think there's no problems to be together and...
-You heard me, Sakura-chan! Her right eyebrow wriggled too, and her pupils has changed till two small eyeballs.
-Does it means we can't have a love life... um... with sex and...
-WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU, GIRL!
Sakura screamed and run as she felt Tsunade wanted to give her a kick.
-Tsunadeeeeeee!!! Help me, Naruto!
-W-What!? Naruto was talking with Kakashi where to find Sasuke.
-Hey, Tsunade-sama, what's going on? Kakashi stared with wide open nervous eyes.
-Stupid kids! What's wrong with young people nowadays! Only thing they can think on, is sex!!!
-S-Sex!? Kakashi turned red in his face and looked quite stupid.
-Yeah, sex! I wasn't talking about you, Kakashi, i guess you never have experienced that part of your life, with only a damn romance book written by one of the most perverted playboys in this world!!! Sakura hide herself behind Naruto.
-I see. So what happened with Neji-san?
-You, you dare not mention this, Narutoooooo!
-In fact i do. No one shall put a bad word about Ero Sennin.
-What about me? Jiraiya turned up with Sasuke on his right side.
-Sasuke? Sakura run to him and hugged him tight.
-Shut up, Jiraiya! You, Kakashi, you better keep your word! Tsunade walked away with many bad words left behind her back.
-What was that all about? Jiraiya scratched his head.
-Ma, Playboy, i guess i am forced to involve you, in your nearer future. He laughed.
-Playboy, huh!? Who said that?
-Who do you think! Naruto laughed.
-Kakashi Sensei. Is it right, that me and Sasuke can't be together in a whole year?
-Ma, we'll find a solution for that. Don't look so worry.
-Thanks, Sensei. She came up with a smile.
-True, Sakura and Sasuke, but no sex! He stared into their eyes with one of his most seriously sights.
-You're kidding! Both of them showed a long face.
-Of course he do! Naruto laughed loudly through.
-One bad joke! Sasuke mumbled.
-Huh!? Sakura squeezed his hand.
-Ouch! He looked at her.
-No, Sasuke-kun. I'm yours, and i am ready, you know. She nodded to him and her face blushed.
-Only if you agree with this judgement.
-To be peeked at, at while we...
-Yes, please, Sasuke... fight for your freedom. She handed him a passionate kiss.
-Be carefully, Uchiha Sasuke. Love bites! Jiraiya smiled and winked.
-In that case, i agree to be watched over in this coming year.
-A sensible move you did there, my boy. Then'll make a promise, so you and Sakura can have a private life. Who wants to watch two young people having... um... yeah... ma, come with me, you two lovebirds. Kakashi coughed innocent.
-Did you hear that, Ero Sennin! No peeking! Naruto cried out and laughed hard through.
-Who says it has become a prohibited rule? Jiraiya came with a silly dirty smirk.
Chapter 12 - Part 1
Love Is War
-I know, Sasuke. I will stay with you and support you the whole way through.
-Will your parents not feel uncomfortable to live with a boy?
-Eh, Sakura... are you okay?
-My parents don't own me, i'm a grown-up woman now, so they better accept it!!!
-Ye-Yeah, i was just asking, so...
-Be quiet, Sasuke! His eyes became small, he sent her a deep dark look.
-I'll take a shower. He walked away. She looked after him with big scary eyes as his voice were deep and cold.
-S-Sorry, Sasuke-kun, it wasn't my meaning to yell at you, i mean...
-I can't hear you! He smashed the door so it gave a thrilling vibes inside her body. She knew he was angry at her. She dared not to think through to go out and visit him in the bath.
Sasuke held his head back over and let his face be washed under the water. He really tried to calm down, he had to go through this with any mistakes. He really wanted this and try to have a normal life together Sakura, but... In the middle of his thoughts, he heard a crack from the bathroom door.
-But, i just want to apologize... this is your home, your parent's home, so again...
-Forget it, Sakura. He gave a deep angry sigh.
-Should i cook something? She asked nervous.
-No, i'm not hungry. He mumbled. But his stomach gave a different answer.
Sakura was disappointed. Tears showed up in her tired eyes. Even she wanted to join him, to hug him tight, kiss him tender, she wouldn't dare. She closed the bathroom door and leaved the house. There were three kilometers to the village, but she felt hungry and wanted ramen. She hadn't in mind to walk home to her parents' house. She wanted to be alone with all her bitterness. Tears flowed over her cheeks. She felt herself like a crybaby. Such foolish...
