Notice Me: An Itasaku StoryChapter One -- HerItachi walked silently down the cobblestone path, his hands shoved in his pockets, thinking about his life. He was at the very top of his class at school, he knew all sorts of advanced jutsu, and he was the rising star of the Uchiha clan. All these things made people love him unconditionally- whether it was the girls in his village, the teachers at school, or his little brother.All his life, his father had told him to excel at everything that he did; no matter what. If he was introduced to a new jutsu, he was required to memorize it. If there was a test at school, he was expected to ace it. And if there was something that others claimed to be impossible, he was to make it possible.All of his life, he was told what to feel; what to do. He could never make any of his own decisions-- his father always did that for him. He wished that, for once, he could do something for himself. Decide something for himself. Then maybe he would become something more than this numb per
Notice Me: Chapter ThreeChapter Three -- Who She Loves Isnt Me
Im home! Itachi called out, after stepping inside his manor. He placed his shoes neatly by the front door; Sakura following soon after.It was silent in the house; so much so that you wouldnt think anyone even lived there at all.Its so quiet. Sakura whispered.Itachi nodded. I dont think anyones home yet----Itachi! Sasukes voice rang through the house.and of course I could always be wrong
Itachi sighed.Then Sasuke came charging down the hall, his hair slightly messy. He wore a large grin on his face. He didnt see Sakura at first, but when he did, he slowed to an almost complete stop. He stopped at the entrance of the hall, gaping at the sight in front of him.Sasuke, is Mother and Father home? Itachi asked him, breaking the uncomfortable silence.What is she doing here?! Sasuke asked, ignoring Itachi
Notice Me: Chapter SevenChapter Seven -- A Chocolaty KissItachi and Sakura had walked around the whole park, at least three times, talking about random things. Though Sakura got hungry after a while, so the two went and got ice cream from a stand along the way.What flavor do you want? Itachi asked Sakura.Sakura bit her lip, as she thought. I dont know. What kinds of ice cream do you have? Sakura asked the middle-aged woman managing the stand. The woman smiled kindly in reply.Well, we have the traditional, chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. But we also have other flavors, like green mint, orange sherbet, and blueberry. The special for this week is cheese cake flavored ice cream. Do any of those sound good?Sakura giggled to herself. Um, I guess Ill try the cheese cake ice cream. Is it any good?The middle-aged woman laughed as well, nodding. Yes! Actually its one of my favorites. But you know, thats the good thing about running
Notice Me: Chapter FiveChapter Five -- The PlanItachi woke up bright and early the next morning, eager to try out his idea. He began by writing a letter to Sakura. It looked something like this:Sakura, I want to see you. Please meet me by the fountain at the park. Thanks,
Notice Me: Chapter FourChapter Four -- Thinking About HerAfter Sakura had left, Itachi returned to the manor. When he came in, he found everyone in the kitchen. His mother was humming over a pot of soup, adding spices and stirring it every now and again. His father was at the table, reading a newspaper silently. Sasuke sat right across from his dad, studying something from a book.His Mother smiled at him pleasantly, and his Father glanced at him briefly before returning to his paper. Sasuke, however didnt acknowledge Itachi at all.Ah, Itachi. There you are. His Mother said. Where have you been?Oh, I was out by the dock, with one of Sasukes friends.Sasukes head shot up when his brother said his name. Oh no, brother. Not one of my friends. Shes your friend. You were the one hanging out with her. Sasuke said, trying hard to keep his voice calm.No, Sakuras your friend. You just dont give her the light of da
Just You and Me: Chapter FiveBickering Like A Married CoupleDude, Sakura! What was that all about, yeah? Deidara asked, beingled helplessly by Sakura back to his table.Nothing! Sakura said, blushing. Its just
I dont want anyone making a big deal out of this
because its not. R-right?
She said, letting go of Deidaras hand. By this time, they reached the table, which was accompanied by Sasori and Itachi.So, Sasori said, eyes pasted on his food. Whos this?Oh, right. This is Sakura, yeah. Deidara said happily.
Sakura Haruno? Itachi asked quietly, no longer paying attention to his food. He looked up at the twosome curiously.Sakura nodded. Yes.Sasori looked up as well, and smiled pleasantly. Good game in gym class today. Ever consider trying out for the volleyball team? I bet youd be really good at it.
Notice Me: Chapter TwoChapter Two -- The Girl Who SmilesSakura then stopped in front of him, looking up at him through eyes as green as emeralds. Sunlight reflected off her pale skin and hair, making her beautiful features stand out even more.Its a nice day, isnt it? Sakura asked smoothly.Itachi nodded, somewhat mechanically. It is.Why was this girl talking to him? Was there even any point to it?No. Itachi thought. No, it has no point. Shes just making small talk, thats all. She probably wouldve done the very same to anyone else whom was passing by. This is a waste of my time. I could be practicing another jutsu now, or--What are you thinking about?Itachis train of thought ended abruptly. He snapped back to reality and realized that he was staring up at the sky. Sakura was on her tiptoes, her too looking up into the sky.Nothing. Itachi said, his voice in its usual monotone.She looked at
Notice Me: Chapter SixChapter Six -- Would This Be Considered A Date?Itachi knocked quickly and loudly, then he took a few steps back and turned around. He pretended to be looking at something interesting.Moments later, he heard the door creak open, followed by a gasp of surprise. Sasuke? Came Sakuras voice. Is that you?Good. So his disguise worked. Now all he had to do was keep his cool and act like a proper Sasuke.Hn. He grunted, acknowledging her presence. He turned around hurriedly, taking a few steps to close the space in between them.Here. Itachi said casually, handing Sakura the letter.
what is this? Sakura asked.Youll see. Anyway, catch you later. Then he turned around once more and left, heading towards the park.About a half an hour later, Itachi sat on the rim of the fountain, looking around nervously. Where is she? He thought. Maybe I shouldve told her what time to meet me
Just You and Me: Ch. ElevenA little hungry
Sakura mused, looking over by Itachi and Naruto. I dont suppose you two are hungy, are you?Naruto raised a hand enthusiastically. Ooh, ooh! I am! Id like some curry, a few rice balls, some of those chicken nuggets from Wendys that when you dump them in a Frosty, they automatically taste from gross to AMAZING, some chocolate turtles, ramen - of course it has to be spicy, I hate it when its not spicy -, a cherry icee, pocky
oh yeah, and marshmallows, and-It was a full five minutes until Sakura just decided to ignore Naruto all together - him and his humongous wish list.What about you Itachi? She asked, completely cutting Naruto off.Hey! I wasnt done! Naruto complained.I dont care! Theres no way theyd have curry, rice balls, OR the Wendys menu here! Besides if you really want Wendys, theres one right down the street!
Itachi and Sakura ch1Bare feet pounded the ground in an uneven rhythm.Run, just keep running, I thought, Dont stop until you get to the gates.I could hear the pursuers behind me, but I was not far from home. The land of fire was easy to lose your way in. However, I knew this land like the back of my hand; Konoha, my home, was just a few miles away.Im so close I can smell it, I thought.The ones behind me gained on me and I tried to speed up but the throbbing pain in my stomach and rib cage was becoming hard to bare. So close, think about it, returning home after a three month mission.I skidded and tried to scream when a person in a black and red cloak appeared out of nowhere in front of me. My shriek of surprise and terror was silenced when a hand covered my mouth. I tried to fight against the hold the blue man had me in but the fatigue was not allowing me an easy escape. I could feel my world go dark as my chakra was sucked away from me.I mu
Crimson Cherry Blossom - ch 6Chapter 6"I can't believe it… I can't believe it…" Naruto kept repeating himself over an over. He, Sasuke, Kakashi and Tsunade were in Tsunade's office. The three had read the letter."Naruto, we know now, ok?" Tsunade said annoyed. The blond boy was giving her a headache. "But, Granny Tsunade, Sakura-chan's ALIVE! Isn't that good news to you!?" Naruto screamed. "Yes, but please, just shut up, I need to think.""I don't think we should search any longer." Kakashi said to the female Hokage. "I believe Sakura. We should just wait." "I know." Tsunade answered while massaging her forehead. "But what if it's a trick?" "It's not, just believe in Sakura-chan!!!" Naruto screamed. Sasuke hadn't said anything at all. He knew that Itachi had Sakura. Now he had two reasons to murder him."Sasuke, what do you think?" Naruto asked in his loud way. Sasuke raised his shoulders and left. Tsunade and Kakashi gave each other a worried look, before Kakashi 'poofed' away."Naruto." Tsunade said. "I want y
Crimson Cherry Blossom - ch 14Chapter 14"…Itachi… I'm… I'm pregnant…"Scared for his reaction, Sakura looked at his face. He hadn't done anything. His black eyes only looked at her.'I don't wanna be pregnant…' Cried Inner Sakura. 'I'm going to be huge…'Still, Itachi hadn't said anything."What's that with those Uchiha's?" Sakura mumbled a little annoyed. "If you tell or ask them something, it takes them ages to-"She got silenced when he laid his finger on her lips, a sign for her to be quiet. He looked into her eyes.Then, he smiled.It was the most prettiest, handsome, happiest smile in the entire world. It was… breathtaking. Sakura could stop staring. He smiled, he smiled because he was honestly happy, and Sakura could feel that herself to.She was only fifteen, and far too young to get a child and raise it, but again, Itachi looked so happy…He bowed down to her and kissed her really passionate. She answered his kiss and wrapped her arms around his neck. He gently placed his hands on her hips and started to
