A Promise is A Promise
Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto! N like many others, I wish I did... But if I did, the akatsuki would NOT DIE b/c, relle, do all hot, misunderstood anime guys have to die? Is it like some unspoken rule?
Rookie 9 and Gaara (Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kiba, Hinata, Shino, Ino, Shikamaru, and Choji) are 18
-Team Gai (Neji, Tenten, Rock Lee) and Kankaru: 19
-Akatsuki (besides Pein and Konan): 23
-Pein and Konan: 24
"Sakura-chan, remember the promise we made 12 years ago? On this very day?" Naruto asked me hopefully, staring at my eyes, as if he could see into my very soul. I looked down, too shy to stare at his face, thinking back to that day. The day that made me cry, but also the day that made me hope. Hope that we'd all meet again, so that we'd be together once more.
"O-of co-course Naruto-kun" I whispered, stuttering. 'Oh great! Now I'm stuttering like an idiot! And to a simple, yes or no question like that!' I thought, closing my eyes in frustration. 'I mean, its ok when Hinata does it around Kiba, she sounds cute. But I don't normally do this! Kuso! Naruto, do you the effect you have on me? Do you do this on purpose?' My face grew hotter and I knew my blush spread.
"You know Sakura-chan, you look cute when you blush like that" Naruto said softly looking at my face lovingly. It times like this that I wish he was still as clueless as he was when we were children.
"I just wanted to know if the promise we made, you were gonna keep. Not because you feel obligated, but because you truly want this just as much as I do." Naruto asked me. I immediately looked up, my jade eyes turned glassy as I stared into his blue eyes. The eyes that I had always thought captured the color of the beautiful clear blue sky, it was my favorite color.
So what do ya think? R & R please!
