Its What You Do To Me
I'm a thousand miles away
Don't you worry about the distance
I'm right there if you get lonely
Close your eyes
I'm by your side
Our friends would all make fun of us
And we'll just laugh along because we know
That none of them have felt this way
It had been a month now since he was stationed to Lightning Country. The country had fallen into civil war and the elite ninja of Fire Country were called upon to help defeat the band of rebels from within. And so now Hatake Kakashi sat looking out into the distance watching as dark, ominous thunder clouds rolled slowly into the evening sky threatening to drown the battlefield with pouring rain and streaks of flashing lightning yet once again. Lightning Country indeed.

One Christmas Night
No one should be alone on Christmas or on any other special occasion for that matter. It defeats the whole purpose of the event, the one of sharing and being around the ones who mean the most to you. When you're alone during the holidays, it only makes the loneliness stronger and the depression greater. No one should ever be alone on Christmas.
Kakashi walked with his hands stuffed in his pockets like he usually did, but this time it wasn't because he was simply being aloof, it was because he was cold. Coming back from a simple (for him) A-rank mission, he was now trudging back through the gates of Konoha on this dark and cold Christmas Eve.
As tired as he was, it wasn't enough to push away the pang of despair that clutched at his chest. Another Christmas. Alone.
On previous Christmases, he had either spent it with his fellow Jounins at the local bar or more depressingly, standing in front of the memorial spending it

This was her chance. Who else would know better than him? He was his best friend after all. There were even implications that they may have even grown up together. But even as Haruno Sakura stole a glance at her companion walking amicably by her side, she hesitated. And so the pair continued on in silence until her companion came to a sudden halt, forcing Sakura to stop in her tracks as well.
Is there something you want to ask me, Sakura?
I dont know what youre talking about. Sakura laughed nervously, looking anywhere but at him.
Then why do you keep looking at me like that from the corner of your eye? Something is obviously on your mind, so you might as well come out with it.
Sakura looked him directly in the eyes. Those sweet kind eyes that conveyed nothing but friendship and understanding. They told her that if she had a question to ask or a secret to tell, that he would d

"Kakashi, what are you looking at?" Asuma asked.
"Huh? Oh, nothing." Kakashi answered guiltly and quickly turned his head back around.
"Nothing my ass. You've been staring in that direction for the past 5 minutes with that lovesick look in your eye. Could it be? Our designated bachelor has found a love interest?" Asuma teased, slapping Kakashi playfully on the back. "So who's the lucky girl...or guy?" Asuma smirked.
Kakashi shot him the nastiest look he could muster beneath his mask and raised up his "Icha Icha" book. "First off, I'm straight as an arrow. And secondly, just drop it." Kakashi sneered.
"Whoa-ho! There's no way I'm dropping it now that you've taken that tone. This girl must be really something! Why don't we just take a look at who this mystery girl is shall we?" Asuma said as he shoved a resisting Kakashi out of the way and looked down the street Kakashi had been staring at. The street was empty except for a pin

Will You Feel Better?
As gently as she could, Sakura wound her hands around Kakashi's head and undid the knot of his hitai-ate. His soft silver hair immediately fell upon his face in feathery bangs. Sakura took these locks of hair and delicately pushed them aside while moving in closer to inspect the shades of black and blue that were beginning to erupt just below the surface of his pale colored skin. While Sakura held Kakashi's face steady in each of her hands, Kakashi held her hips steady in each of his, their warm even breaths melding together in this intimate pose. Sakura lifted her chakra infused hands inches above Kakashi's marred flesh and wove it back together and drained it of its bruises.
Without a word and with nothing but an air of professionalism, Sakura slowly lowered the zipper of Kakashi's vest which he obligingly shrugged off. Next came the shirt, but this part was more difficult. Kakashi brought th

When did Kakashi-sensei start wearing cologne anyway? He never seemed to care to wear it before because we get all sweaty and dirty from flying through the trees during our missions. But its unmistakable, lately hes been putting a great deal of effort to be near me and to smell good. Goodness, does he smell good! The cologne suits him, crisp and clean

Chapter 9-You Have To Care
When Sakura stepped out of the steaming bathroom with a thick, fluffy white towel wrapped tightly around her body and another one wrapped around her damp hair like a turban, she was pleased to see that Kakashi had neatly made their previously rumpled bed and carefully put away their clothes that had been haphazardly thrown onto the floor the night before. There wasn't a scrap of evidence left to testify to their recent activities except maybe for the telltale marks on both their necks, but that could be easily rectified with Sakura's healing chakra. As such, Sakura walked over to the dresser mirror opposite their bed and began to heal each and every one of Kakashi's many love bites.
Kakashi watched with a sigh of disappointment. And I had worked so hard on those, too! Oh, well. It gives me an excuse to neck her again, Kakashi thought smiling to himself.
"What are you smirking at?" Sakura raised an eyebrow at hi

I heard the crash and tinkling of shattering glass, and my eyes widened in horror. At the same time, my hands shot up to cover my open mouth. What had I done?!
My hands still covering my mouth, I carefully stepped forward and dared to peek around the tree to confirm my suspicions.
I hadn't just imagined it. This wasn't a nightmare I could just wake up from with my heart racing and quickly push aside.
There was the gaping hole and ragged edges of broken window pane. There was Mrs. Kyoyou framed by the aforementioned hole, her face looking as shocked as mine felt. But unlike mine, her face quickly turned a bright shade of red, her eyebrows furrowed, and her mouth set in a grim line from sheer anger.
I watched as her furious face disappeared from the now shattered kitchen window, only to reappear again through the opening of her front door. I braced myself for what I knew was coming. What I wanted to do was to just runaway

Kakashi brought his fingers to the top edges of his mask and knowing what he was about to do, I lowered my hands from the sides of his face and placed them patiently on my lap instead.
With his back turned away from everybody else so that nobody but I could see, he began to lower the thin barrier of fabric down from his face, slowly revealing himself to me.
First, came the straight bridge of his nose and the tops of his cheeks where I could see more of the scar that bisected his left eye. Then, the tip of his pointed nose, his hairless upper lip, followed by his thin, smooth lips. Last was his chin and jaw, angular and masculine and cleanly shaved.
I paused for a moment, letting it all sink in.
This was my first time really seeing his face: Not a hazy blur as he suddenly pushed me up against a wall and ravished me senseless on New Year's Day, or in darkness as we slow danced atop Hokage Monument beneath a starry n

"Thank you." I said, taking the newly filled water canteen from Kakashi's gloved hand. Since the decision to linger at the River and Wind Country border was made, a small team had been sent to go a few miles back into River Country to refill our water supply. That way, water rations wouldn't be quickly depleted while we all waited for the sun to set.
"How are you feeling?" Kakashi asked, lowering himself down to sit beside me in the shade of a scraggly, dried out tree.
"I'm fine, Kakashi. Don't worry about me."
Still, Kakashi gave me an anxious look with his one exposed eye.
I let out a sigh and took a sip of the still slightly cool water from my water canteen to appease him. When I lowered the canister down from my lips, I saw that the tense look in his eye had

Kakashi still had me pressed against his side and his masked lips buried in my hair when I caught Madam Shijimi walking towards us, a far off look in her eyes and a small smile on her lips.
"I've never seen her so happy," she said to herself in a disbelieving daze.
"Yes, and it's all because of you. What you did was truly amazing." I praised her. "Thank you for being so understanding and giving Hiraku-hime and Shinri-san a chance."
Madam Shijimi's eyes focused onto mine, as if suddenly seeing me for the first time. She had been so lost in her own thoughts that she slightly jolted when I addressed her. Then, her eyes widened, looking between Kakashi and me in realization.
"You knew about them all along, didn't you? Both of you did. That's why you gave me that little talk, wasn't it?" she asked, her eyes focusing solely on me now.
"Yes, we did and we're sorry for not telling you, but it wasn't our place. And I had promised Hiraku-hime

"What do you mean?"
"Well, for one, whose is this? What is this?!" Sakura said hysterically while jabbing a finger at...something.
Kakashi tilted his head to the side so that he was looking at it almost upside down just like Sakura.
"Well, if you squint at it really hard, I'm pretty sure it's a leg. And if you start here-" Kakashi said, jabbing his own finger onto the page, "And follow it up all the way to...here...it's quite obvious that it belongs to the girl."

"It'll fit, Sakura. And it's not an 'it' by the way. It's a he and he has a name."

"What do you think?!" Sakura asked irritably. "I'm sore!"
"Here, let me help." Kakashi laughed again, making his way back to her and lifting her up into his arms until he was carrying her bridal style.

Kakashi was the first to wake up. It began with bright light shining against his closed eyes coaxing him out of his dream-induced lethargy. As his mind began to kick into gear, the realization that he needed to get up forced him to reluctantly open up his eyes, but the view he awakened to didn't make him so reluctant anymore.
Breathing evenly, sleeping on her side facing him was a peaceful, smiling Sakura. One arm was tucked under her pillow while the other covered her chest, her hand resting on her pillow close to her face. The blanket covered the gentle flare of her hip, but he could still see every graceful dip and curve of her thighs and legs beneath the fabric. The side of her body, smooth and hourglass-shaped lay exposed, as did her flat stomach and bellybutton. Looking into Sakura's face, closed eyes laced by long lashes, tender lips curved in a small smile, and soft, flawless skin all framed by silky strands of pink

Kakashi and Sakura slowly parted from their kiss, looking into each other's eyes, and feeling kind of hazy. Who knew that it was true that you could tell if he really loved you by his kiss? Because no matter how deep and passionate, or light and chaste Kakashi's kiss was, to Sakura, Kakashi's kiss always felt right, always felt loving.
Through the years, she had had her share of kisses with Naruto and Sasuke and Sai and even Rock Lee, but it never felt right. Sure, she'd always felt the churning in her stomach when she'd kissed each of them, but unfortunately, it wasn't the pleasant kind. Maybe it was because she knew Naruto was meant to be with Hinata who was now his girlfriend. Or maybe it was because she knew Sasuke was too cold and distant to care for her the way she wanted, no needed, to be c

Things change. It's inevitable. You could be minding your own business, happy as a clam, thinking that life is finally just perfect then WHAM! Curveball. Life and fate don't care who you are and what your plans are in life. They will screw you over.
Thing is, I never asked for much in life. I figured that if I kept my desires simple, then surely the fates would look kindly down upon me and let me have my way because, after all, Haruno Sakura isn't asking for much, just a certain Uchiha with an above average IQ, smoldering good looks, and a desire to rebuild his clan. "Smart, sexy, and looking for sex." I mean, seriously, is it any wonder why Uchiha Sasuke had girls literally throwing themselves at him, myself included? The guy was a walking, talking, billboard for an ultimate dream date!

I don't look at him, but keep my eyes trained on Hiraku over my canteen as I take a deep drink of cool water from it.
"Thanks, Kakashi, but I got this covered." I say, wiping my mouth with the back of my hand as I watch my target have a low spoken conversation with her guards. They stand a few yards away from the rest of us who are resting and having lunch in the dappled shade of the trees.
Although the daimyo has taken on Team Kakashi to watch his daughter's convoy, the majority (and the best) of his guards continue to accompany it because as aforementioned, the daimyo is not a stupid man. And when it comes to something as precious and valuable as his daughter, he is even more cautious and astute, and for that I am grateful.

The alcohol has coursed through his veins, made its way to his brain, and instead of turning him into a better fighter like Rock Lee when he gets inebriated, Kakashi-sensei turns into a blubbering, horny, idiot. Not that he's not a horny idiot to begin with. Blubbering, no. Horny idiot, yes.

If there's one thing I've learned in life, it's that if you want to keep a bad situation from getting worse, then keep a low profile.
An enemy ninja wants to beat the living daylights out of you? Keep a low profile and hide in the bushes. Your overly volatile mentor wants to know who the hell hid her sake this time? Keep a low profile and hide behind Shizune. An amorous ex-sensei kisses you like there's no tomorrow at a holiday function? Hide in your apartment like a turtle in its shell and live off fast-food delivery for the rest of your life. And yes, that counts as keeping a low profile, too.
