One Hell of a Day
"Mai, hang in there." Sakura told her. She could see the light in her friend's eyes start to recede and was trying hard to blink back the tears.
Ziom had frozen dead in spot and couldn't stop staring at his dying love. She weakly lifted her hand and he took it immediately. Her strength was fading fast. "I'm so sorry." He whispered and kissed the palm of her hand.
Mai's eyes looked to Sakura, "Please...save...our baby..." As Sakura nodded to the plea, Mai switched her attention back to Ziom. "If boy..." she coughed up more blood, "Ria...You pick...if girl..." She waited for a sign of acknowledgment and when he nodded, she spoke again, "Please protect...it..."
"Suzu, if it's a girl." He muttered. It was the only name besides Mai that would appear in his head.
She smiled a bloodied, fractured smile. It was like looking at a broken stone angel. "I like...that name..."

Life: Free, Old, and New
She ran into Tsunade's office. Sakura's heartbeat had risen exponentially as the anticipation and nervousness took over her conscious thoughts. Her breath was caught in her throat as the pounding in her ears grew in sync with her heart. She slowly approached Tsunade's desk, the Hokage's chair was turned around facing the window. Sakura hesitated in speaking up, but there was no need. The chair slowly turned around, revealing the least likely person she'd believe to be there.
It definitely wasn't Tsunade, the Hokage, who had turned around in the Hokage's chair. It was none other than Sasuke. His hair had grown down to his shouldersshe made a mental note about cutting itand his eyes seemed dull and deprived of light. He wore gray, unflattering clothes that made him look malnourished and starved.
He opened his mouth to say something but the words wouldn't

After finding the information on Inken, both Sasuke and Sakura couldn't wait to get back to the village. In order to go to Kagegakure, they would need the permission of their Hokage, and lucky for them, Neji's team finished that night. The next morning both teams were prepared to set out ot Konoha, but Lee asked to stay. In fact, he practically begged. It was a bit out of character, but Tenten felt bad and allowed Team Seven to go back to Konoha. Neither Sasuke nor Sakura told the others about what happened the day before with their encounter, so it was only by coincidence that she let them off the hook.
Sakura was in charge of the team and told them to pack up immediately. Thankfully, there wasn't much to pack and they left before noon. She led the team without rest with Sasuke by her side. Naruto was clearly confused as to why it was so important to get back to the villag

It felt as though she had just rested her head on her pillow when the cry of an infant had woken her up from a fleeting second of sleep. She rolled over onto her back as the baby continued to cry. Sakura reached out for Sasuke and when she felt no one next to her, she panicked. Propping herself up, she groggily looked around in the dark and saw that she was all alone.
"That bastard," she mumbled as she pulled the covers off of her and walked over to the twins' crib.
Tsunade had come to the hospital the other day to check the twins' health since they were born three months premature. Though they were smallwhich was to be expectedtheir vitals seemed to be healthy so she allowed Sakura to take them home. Her shift at the hospital had ended later than she expected, so when she got home, she wasn't surprised to see Sasuke already asleep. Luckily, she had already set up their crib a few days a

Blood, Sweat, and Tears
Sakura couldn't help but to stare. After being away for so long and then being contained for six months, Sasuke was finally on a mission. For the past couple of days, he'd been wearing loose, baggy clothes that seemed faded from use but now he was completely different. He wore a sleeveless black cloak with a high, popped collar. It was zipped halfway down his torso only to reveal the long sleeved mesh shirt but it was practically see-through, showing his chiseled frame. He wore dark blue pants that hugged his legs before being stuffed into his black shoes that reached up to his calves. He had on dark blue gloves with the fingers cut off and a metal guard on the back as well as black elbow guards. His katana was strapped to his hip and his headband was tied around his foreheadhis bangs covered Konoha's symbol. Though the sight of him made her both hot and cold

Dinner with the Devil
"It is you," Sakura muttered under her breath.
Ziom simply stared at her, waiting for her to say something. When all he got was her large green eyes, he asked, "Do I know you from somewhere?"
She snapped out of her daze. "Uh, yeah. It's me, Haruno Sakura." This time it was his turn to stare at her. "Don't you remember me?"
Sadly, he shook his head. "I'm sorry, but I think I would've remembered someone like you." He took a strand of her pink hair and let it fall through his fingers.
This man claimed to be Katorabe Ziom. He had the same face and voice of the Ziom she knew. His eyes were a bit different though. They were sadder and more tired than she remembered even though they retained their golden hue. Maybe there were two Katorabe Zioms in the village. How popular was the name Ziom?
"Excuse me, Haruno-san"
"Sakura, please call me Sakura."

What did I do to Deserve This?
Sasuke was frozen with anger, frustration, pain, concern, and strangest of all wonderment. There, standing beside the mysterious shinobi, was a translucent image of Sakura. She was bright and glowing. There seemed to be a certain sense of life to her as her colorless eyes reflected longing and sadness. If this was a reflection of her soul, it was completely accurate. This showed her true feelings. Just pure, raw emotion.
She just stood there, beside him, as her intense light and frantic swirling started to fade. He had magically beckoned her over to him, and the shinobi took hold of her wrist. Reeling her in, the shinobi made contact with her lips and though it looked as if he was kissing herwhich made Sasuke boil insidehe was instead eating her chakra. Sasuke didn't know what to do. His instincts were screaming at him to mo

With Holy blood running through his veins
Though his name is sacred to speak
There is something that remains
His body is carved from all things precious
Diamonds, gold, and sapphires
He speaks carefully, melodically, but cruel
Though I'd listen to his voice forever
Never does he express what's on his mind
And never does he embrace
He desires to be alone
Yet he lacks to keep the space
He will forever remain a mystery
One that I'll never completely understand
Though I know it's a hopeless cause
By his side, I'll still stand
He calls himself the devil
Weaves tales of exaggerated stories
He's doing everything in his power
To diminish his deserved glory
He doesn't listen
No matter how hard I try
Now he's keeping me at bay
Causing me to cry
I do not weep for myself
But I do for him
He's destroying everything
Because he's an angelic demon
I hear his call
And I come forth
I ignore his snide remarks
Because of his worth
He was my savior
From that wretched place

c) You don't have to tag anyone, but it's highly expected.

On the Dock of the Bay
The salty sea air stung her face as it blew with the sail causing it to ride the waves at a speed faster than its normal pace. The sky was clear with only the sun in her way as it made its way across the sky on time. She looked out to the vast and clear sea, and with no land in sight, she sighed. For three days now, they've been sailing this part of the Grand Line and what worried her more was that she hadn't seen a single ship on these waters. But, she knew that this wouldn't bother her Captain for he was the only person that could be carefree in a moment of desperation.
"LUFFY! GET OUT!"
She could hear their cook, Sanji, yell like he did every time their Captain was in need for a snack.
The crashing and booming echoed after she heard Luffy shout back, "BUT SANJI! I'M HUNGRY!"
He ran out onto the deck as a frying pan flew past his ear. The commotion stopped as she leaned over the rail of the ship to see the sun reflect off of the dancing waves.
