| KakaSaku - Be there
She sighed. It had been two years now since her parents died and one year since Sasuke. She didn't know if she still had loved him then, but she was still very sad about his death, even if she saw how much sadder Naruto had been. No wonder really. Naruto had been the one who was forced to kill him after Sasuke had gotten a lucky hit at Kakashi-sensei so he crashed and passed out against a tree. Also note that the tree also "HAD" to fall right over the same sensei so he got stuck there even after he woke up. Sasuke had been on his way to kill Kaka-sensei with Chidori - the very attack sensei had taught him - when Naruto attacked with his rasen-rasengan and killed Sasuke.
It couldn't have been easy to be team 7's sensei now when she thought about it.
Kakashi-sensei had also told them that they were the first one he had passed.
The first team he ever passed had been the jinchuuriki of the nine tails, the last Uchiha in Konoha - later even a betra
Two Worthy CompetitorsIt’s never too early in the morning for idiocy.Two Worthy Competitors3 years ago in Romance More Like This
That’s a lesson Sakura acknowledged in the distinct way several things had been presented to her attention lately: By watching Sasuke and Naruto yell at each other.
“You’re a complete idiot! What sort of girl would fall in love with a pathetic little BOY like you?” Sasuke fired at Naruto, the impact hitting the other right in the stomach. “Get this through your delusional head: Sakura wants a MAN, not a little boy! Do you see any other MEN here?”
Kakashi turned a page in his book.
“I thought you didn’t like Sakura!” Naruto hurtled back, a reddish hue now present upon his indeed childish features. “You said she was an annoying bitch!”
Perhaps this weakened Sasuke’s defense, but he gave no indication as to such.
“This isn’t about like or dislike,” he returned swiftly. “It’s about y
Written FeelingsWords flowed almost effortlessly on to the page.Written Feelings5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Sakura wrote with little pausing or hesitation, emptying her heart and soul on to the paper.
The words were of love, of passion, of affection too deep for words. Drawings illustrated each thought that blossomed in her head and found a place on the page.
As she wrote, she felt something that she didn't feel often.
She felt as if everything in the world made sense.
These words that were taking shape on the page, these feelings that were coming to life through the gentle strokes of a pencil, they were fresh and new. As new as the leaves on the trees and the wind that whispered its way across the village and tickled the young girl's face as she wrote.
"What are you writing?"
Sakura blushed and clutched the notebook to her chest. She looked up, her heart doing a little dance inside her nervous chest.
Naruto grinned at her.
"Is it about me?" he asked hopefully.

"Right. And I'm going to grow wings and fly to the Land of Parrots."
"Of course you are."
"Stop grinning like that! I'm really serious!"
"I believe you. I really do."
Naruto's face turn red.
"Why don't you believe me?" he demands.
Sasuke laughs again.
"First of all, you don't have the guts. Second of all, she'd probably rather go out with me."
"No way! She got over you years ago! She's seventeen now, Sasuke!"
"Got over me? Ha! I doubt it. What, do you think she's loves YOU now?"
"Of course she does," Naruto sneers. "Remember a few days ago? She let me hold her hand."
Sasuke rolls her eyes. "Actually, you grabbed her hand, then she punched you," he reminds him.

My true love.
Why couldn't she be mine?
I remember how I reacted so calm and uncaring when Sakura told me that her and Naruto were dating.
I smiled and nodded, trying to look bored, even as the thoughts running through my head were overflowing with panic, envy, and anger.
And the picnic, about two days afterward.....
I sat across from them, peering at them over the top of Make-Out Paradise, watching Sakura giggle as Naruto balanced a strawberry on his nose. She looked so cute when she giggled that it nearly broke my heart. I tried to concentrate on my book, but the words seemed to run together on the page. Like.....tears.
When I looked up again, Sakura was feeding Naruto.
Jealousy overtook me.
Why couldn't it be ME she was feeding, ME that was making her giggle and smile in that irresistibly cute way of her's?

Sakura stares at him, a thoughtful expression on her face.
What do I care? Kakashi thinks. She can stare at me as long as she wants. I don't care at all.
He's not good at lying, even to himself.
He DOES care.
Especially since she's been staring at him for most of the day.
So what? Kakashi thinks, keeping up the pretense. She can stare at me all day if she likes. I don't care.
Sakura clears her throat loudly.
Kakashi pretends to ignore her.
"Kakashi-sensei," Sakura says quietly.
Kakashi sighs. "Yes, Sakura?" he says, looking up from his book. Sakura looks at her shoes. "Well.....you see.......earlier......me and Naruto and Sasuke were..talking...," she hesitates. "...about YOU."
Kakashi says nothing.
"About you," Sakura repeats. "And Naruto said that you probably didn't love anyone, and I said that that was ridiculous,

It was while the village was snuggled deep within a blanket of such that four companions gathered, their hearts swelling with the cheer of the impending holiday.
"Thanks again for helping."
Naruto's entire visage was radiant with the utmost joy, his own heart fit to burst with the the spirit of Christmas.
"No problem. We WERE coming to visit, anyway….."
This from Sakura, currently standing upon a ladder as to affix Christmas baubles, their glittery sheens of celadon winking at the collective, upon the tree.
Kakashi stood by, his arms burdened by a large box housing by the remaining ornaments.
Hinata poked her head from the kitchen, her eyes sweeping the room at large.

The blonde-tressed male and pink-tressed woman met her proposal with enthusiastic nods, as the task of decorating the tree was nearing its finale.

Kakashi looks up from his book cautiously. Sakura smiles at him. "Ooooookay.....," Kakashi says slowly. "What is it?" "Er.....well......," Sakura blushes. "I was just wondering....what do you think about at night? Before you fall asleep, what do you think about?" Kakashi closes his book and stares at the sky for a few seconds. "Life," he says finally. "Loss and love." "That's not an answer," Sakura scowls. "Why do you always do that?" "Do what?" Kakashi asks innocently. "You know what," Sakura glares at him. "And why do you read that dirty book all the time?" "You have your interests and I have mine," Kakashi replies. "You mean you're a pervert?" Sakura rolls her eyes.

The question catches Kakashi by surprise. He looks at the asker, a pink-haired ninja girl with an innocent expression on her 16-year-old face, with a mixture of annoyance and interest.
"Why do you want to know NOW?"
"I just do."
"Don't you remember? There's another mask under my mask."
"You know that's not true, Kakashi-sensei....."
"What are you talking about? You saw it yourself."
"Alright. What's under the mask under your mask?"
"And under that.......?"
"Your nose is growing."
"Is it? I hadn't noticed."
"You know what I mean."
"Are you sure about that?"
Sakura stares at him, utterly confused at the question. Satisfied that he's disabled her for now, Kakashi starts to walk away.
"Can you at least give me a clue about what your face looks like?"
Kakashi stops, fighting down a groan. Sakura is not so easily outwitted.
Help from GenmaSakura quietly rapped on Genma's door, stepping back to wait for him to answer. She bit her lip in anxiety as she waited for the door to open. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea. She was going to kill Ino for daring her to ask Genma to help her with her "problem".Help from Genma3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It wasn't a "problem" per say for Sakura, but just a dilemma of her falling in love with men that would never take any notice of her. She sighed as she thought of her secret love interest. Her former sensei.
This was different than when she had been in love with Sasuke. Hell, her "love" for Sasuke wasn't even love, it was just an obsession. But this feeling she had whenever she was around Kakashi or even just thinking about him or listening or speaking about him, this fluttering in her stomach at the mere mention of his name-this was real.
Sakura didn't even know when she had fallen for the Copy Ninja. Her love for the ambiguous ninja crept up on her slowly, like a flower in bloom. She didn't even realize she was attracted to

Others plummet and have their senses knocked from their heads, whilst the beautiful bird laughs at them.
“It’s not funny!” Kakashi uttered, his tone clinging to an irritated growl as he regained control of his defiant limbs.
“You’re right,” Sakura met his utterance, a massive grin spreading across her lips. “It’s the most hilarious thing in the world.”
In resentful answer, the other reached forward and proceeded to give a handful of her tresses a slight yank, albeit more of a teasing pull than something intended to evoke severe pain.
An exaggerated “Ouch!” burst from between the female’s lips.
“Bully,” she uttered in mock complaint, playfully punching his arm. “Do you want to terrorize me or learn how to ice skate?”
ShatteredSakura leaned against a tree and stared at the moonlit sky. Memories flooded into her mind. She remembered when she had been a rather dimwitted girl of thirteen. Now she was an extremely smart and strong-willed girl of twenty-two, and her life still seemed to be shrouded in fog.Shattered6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It's so easy to find yourself in a world overrun with shadows and demons, slinking from place to place, not trying to hide from you. It's so easy to be lured into a trust tainted with empty promises and forgotten dreams. It's so easy to betray.
To deliver love that doesn't exist.
To break a heart.
Sakura wiped a tear from her eye. How could I have been so trusting? she wondered. How.....? She remembered the loving words Sasuke had whispered to her the first time he'd held her. Where were the loving words now? They were gone. Shattered into pieces, just l
Truth or Dare"Why don't we stop here for the night?" suggests Kakashi-sensei, turning to smile at the three ninjas who are trailing behind him. His suggestion is greeted by frantic panting from Naruto, who collapses in exhaustion, falling against Sasuke. Normally, Sasuke would have pushed Naruto away, his face a mask of cold anger, but Sasuke is too exhausted to care about anything except keeping himself from passing out. Sakura wipes the sweat from her forehead and eagerly sucks in a huge gulp of air. She stares in wonder at her sensei. How does he do it? she wonders. He doesn't even look tired...... She shakes her head, deciding that there are some things that she'll never understand about Kakashi. "Who's going to set up the sleeping bags?" asks Kakashi cheerfully. "Not me," Sasuke mutters.

She stared down at her lap, wishing that she could do something......ANYTHING.....to make Sasuke fall in love with her.
The only thing big about me is my forehead, she thought bitterly.
Inside her head, a scene unfolded......
"Sakura," said Sasuke's pleasant voice. "Your forehead is so big and beautiful. It makes me feel like kissing it." "Go ahead," Sakura said, blushing furiously. "That's what it's for."
Sakura surfaced reluctantly from her fantasy world. Reality struck her like a bolt of merciless lightning. Sasuke would never say that, she thought, looking down at her lap. No one would ever say that.

"Every look is worth a thousand words."
"You-You're crazy. I don't love Kakashi-sensei. Not like THAT, anyway."
"Oh please," Sasuke was utterly disgusted with Sakura's weak lies. "You're always cuddling up to him and praising him to high heaven about every little thing."

I will never forget the look on my face.
It seems odd that, having went over these events too many times to relate thoroughly, the most vivid things I remember are my own actions and facial portrayals.
I remember the bare surprise as the door to my office burst open.
The subtle fear as Kakashi stumbled in, his clothes in tatters.
But I also remember, as cannot be helped, certain details concerning the man.
For example, the deep wounds across his chest and shoulders.
The blood running down the side of his neck in an appalling stream of crimson.
The twigs and leaves tangled into his hair, like some sort of bizarre ornaments.
And of course his voice, as terrified, desperate, and deranged as it sounded.
"Tsunade-sama! Wolves……biting…….! It was so close, SO CLOSE…… Please, we have to…….I have to……naked women…….……wo-WOLVES! Tsunade-sama, we have to……."

Alright, Kakashi's pretty great. He's the whole package: Handsome, smart, brave, sweet, kind, mature. Sure, he's a pervert, but it's not like that's the ONLY thing he is. And you know what? I seriously thought he never wanted a girlfriend. I thought he was a loner, or was afraid of being rejected, or (at worst) he just didn't like women. But stuff like that fades into the shadows when you think about it too much. Before long it was just an imprint of a thought, a faded smudge where a musing might have been.

These were the words that passed the lips of 17-year-old kunochi Sakura Haruno, her hands currently occupied with the task of encasing her sensei’s newest, albeit somewhat trivial, wound within pallid bandages.
Choosing to let the man’s lack of response drift underneath her notice, the female journeyed forward, employing a tone of candid displeasure.
“You’d think a highly skilled ninja such as yourself wouldn’t have done something so clumsy. You’re lucky that vase wasn’t new….”
Still no words voyaged off the man’s tongue, his expression refusing to shift from lack of interest.

At this, both Sakura’s instauration of the man’s lesion and her loose ridicule were provisionally halted.

“I suppose now that were dying, there’s no boundaries.”

And then, in a slightly stiffer tone……

The books aided, of course.
One can always find the greatest of information slumbering deep within the written word.
Natheless, it was Kakashi's unfortunate discovery that literature could only pull him so far through the water before the rope snapped in two. Naturally, there was a bounteous amount of prose on the particular subject that the grey-maned Jonin seeked. It was the sort of subject that almost every author felt the need to dip their ladle into. The broth was simply too sweet to resist.
But, as I said before, literature can only lead one so far.
Besides, the majority of it huddled in the midst of fiction. And Kakashi certainly could not rely on fantasy to pave the way for this drastic leap.
Even the volumes that looked the most promising, with titles likes "The Collected Letters of That Certain Romancist" failed him in the end.

Rude words were flying back and forth between them, and it seemed like the thick string that had been firmly wrapped around their love had finally snapped. Where tender affection and gentle flames had once lurked, now there was only ashes and hatred.
Kakashi and Sakura had started dating shortly after Sakura's nineteenth birthday.
Sasuke secretly thought their relationship was annoying.
Some lovers were just so.......dedicated.
A good description, but still vague enough to only lightly touch the surface of the mind before being comprehended.
They were always holding hands or staring deeply into each others' eyes. To Sasuke, it seemed like every time he turned around they were kissing. Kakashi would whisper things into Sakura's ear that made her blush and giggle. Perverted thin

And if I don't blow your mind with that one kiss, I'll leave you alone," Sasuke pleaded, his intoxicated state making him beg, for if he was in a clear-minded and alcoholic-free state, Sasuke would never beg, Sakura knew. The irony that Sasuke wanted her now, now that she was no longer in love with him or even slightly interested in him, did not miss Sakura's notice. She sighed in defeat, just wanting him to stop pestering her already.
"Fine," she grumbled. "Go ahead and kiss me, get it out of your system. Not like it'll change my mind," she murmured, the latter part of her response so low that he didn't hear it.
