Chapter Five.

Sasuke looked at the clock for the fifteenth time that nigh and sighed in frustration. The whole idea of Sakura dying then being brought back to life is very hard for one person to get used to. Especially if you were the person that had a shot of keeping her alive for the rest of her life, if you know, you knew what she wanted.

'Wait…' Sasuke thought sitting up immediately once an idea popped into his mind. What does every single female in Konoha deeply want? A chance to date Sasuke Uchiha, of course. Sasuke almost laughed out loud when the idea came to him, '…and I thought this was going to be hard.' Sasuke got out of bed and grabbed his coat ready to leave and go find Sakura; he stepped outside and realized that it was dark out.

'Oh, yeah.' Sasuke sighed and walked back into his house and got some coffee out.

'It's 2am.'

Sakura groaned and covered her head with her blanket trying to drown out the annoying pecking coming from her window.

'Stupid bird…'

Sakura closed her eyes once more attempting to get back to sleep. Sakura smiled faintly once the pecking stopped, but the smile vanished once the pecking was replaced by banging.


Sakura immediately sat up and looked at her window, and saw the Sasuke Uchiha kneeling on her window sill.

"Sasuke?" Sakura asked more to herself then to him. Sasuke motioned with his finger for Sakura to come closer, and she obliged.

"What are you doing here?" Sakura demanded as she opened the window. Sasuke said nothing at first actually contemplating what he was doing here. Sakura stared at him raising her eyebrow slightly.

'Damn, since I thought he was a bird, I ignored him for at least an hour or so. And it has to be less then thirty-two degrees out there…'

'Ha! Look how cute he looks all frostbiting and what not.' Sakura inwardly rolled her eyes at inner Sakura's response.

"Um, Sasuke?" Sakura asked, waving her hand in front of his face. Sasuke seemed to snap out of his little trance and grabbed Sakura's hand.

"Let's go," Sasuke said instantly, dropping Sakura's hand and jumping onto the snow covered ground. Sasuke looked up at Sakura expecting Sakura to jump down after him, but to his surprise Sakura didn't move. Instead she gave him a very strange look.

"Where are we going to go?"

"Does it matter?" Sasuke retorted, tightening his jaw. Here he was trying to save her freaking life and she was questioning him?

"Yes! It almost five in the morning, Sasuke, and you know if you haven't noticed most people sleep at five am in the morning and most stores don't open at five anyways." Sakura replied crossing her arms.

Sasuke shrugged, "That doesn't apply to where we're going."

"But, the sun's not even out yet."

"Yes, yes I can see that."

"And it's freezing out there."

"Grab a sweater."

"And…" Sakura's voice trailed off, and narrowed her eyes once she saw Sasuke obvious smirk. 'Damn, I hate when he wins…'

Sasuke sighed, "Look Sakura, if we're going to make it, we have to leave now." Sakura bit her lip seriously contemplating crawling back into bed and not waking up till noon.

"So you want me to get up at five am in the morning and follow you to who knows where in freezing temperatures?" Sakura questioned.


"…grab two sweaters."

"Ugh, I can't believe I'm doing this," Sakura sighed as she walked to her closet and pulled out a sweater and some snow boots.

"I hate you Uchiha," Sakura muttered angrily as she jumped out the window, "I freaking hate you."

Sasuke simply smirked, and lead the way.

'She's not a morning person…'

"Where the hell are you taking me?" Sakura demanded stomping her way through one foot of fallen snow. Sasuke ignored her and continued walking up the hill just outside Konoha. Sakura let out an exasperated sigh and decided just to go along with Sasuke's sudden urge to play 'follow the leader.'

'Damn him,' Sakura thought bitterly.

'Aw, you got to admit what he's doing is kind of sweet.'

'Sweet? Sweet? Sweet would be bringing me roses or hand feeding me chocolate. But, oh no, he dragged me out of my bed just to climb a freaking mountain.'

'It's a hill.'

'A pretty damn tall hill. Besides, I wouldn't be shocked that by the time we get to the top there will be a shovel waiting for me to dig my own grave, since he hates my guts and all.'

'Please, that's not true.'

'Uh-huh, why not?'

'Because if he wanted to kill you, he could've whacked you in the head with a shovel while you were sleeping.'


Sakura snapped out of her thoughts, and noticed the he had stopped walking.


"We're here." Sasuke simply stated, sitting down in the snow. Sakura looked around "here" and as far as she could tell, they were on top of the hill over-looking Konoha.

"Um, Sasuke…what's here?" Sasuke glanced at his watch, "Just sit."

Sakura rolled her eyes and sat next to him quietly, she flinched slightly as her hands touched the snow.

'Damn, it's so cold,' Sakura thought rubbing her hands together.


Sakura looked at Sasuke and saw that he was handing her his snow gloves. Sakura stared blankly at them, not quite sure what she was suppose to do with them.

"Sakura, just take them."

Sakura reached over to them cautiously and put them on. They were black and a bit too big for her, but the thing that caught her eye was the Uchiha symbol on the back of each glove.


Sakura looked at Sasuke and saw that he was smirking at her.

"What?" Sakura demanded.

"Nothing," Sasuke said still smirking.

"Tell me! What's so funny?"


"Argh, Uchiha! You can not end every conversation with a 'hn' okay? That's not how it wo-"

"Shut up Sakura, and look." Sasuke said nodding his head towards the horizon. Sakura pouted her lip for being so rudely cut off and crossed her arms; she cased her eyes over Konoha and watched as the sun started to rise sending its rays over it. The snow that had freshly fallen the night before sparkled as the sun lit up, almost giving Konoha an eerie, yet beautiful, kind of glow.

"Wow…" Sakura whispered under her breath. Sasuke watched Sakura as her eyes sparkled with excitement, just like a little child. She had the brightest smile on her face, which sent a tingling sensation down Sasuke's spine. And Sasuke realized, that for once he wasn't making her cry, and felt pretty damn good about it too.

The both sat there until it reached its limit in the sky and the effect had worn off. Sasuke sighed, and stood up brushing the snow from his pants.

"Let's go." But Sakura didn't move. Sasuke sighed and knelt down in front of her and noticed that she was crying.

'So much for not making her cry…'


"T-that was so b-beautiful," Sakura choked out through sobs, crying even harder.

"So you're crying?" Sasuke asked, slightly confused.

"I-I am not c-crying,"

Sasuke narrowed his eyes, "Hn."

"I'm not!"


"S-Shut up…" Sakura said, whipping her eyes with the back of her hand.

"Damn Sakura, don't wipe your crap all over my gloves," Sasuke said reaching into his pocket and pulling out a handkerchief. Sakura didn't reach for them again, but instead just looked at them…again. "What is it now?"

Sakura glared at him and snatched the handkerchief, "It's nothing, I'm just shocked is all."

Sasuke sighed, "Why?"

"Well for one thing, you carry a handkerchief. And the other…" Sakura turned the handkerchief upside down and pointed at the Uchiha symbol in the corner, "…you have the Uchiha symbol sewed in the handkerchief."


"Well I just fined that weird." Sakura said, using the handkerchief.

"Most people say thank you after being given something you know." Sasuke replied, ignoring the whole comment on his clan's symbol.

"And, most people don't say thank you before knocking someone out and leaving them on a bench." Sakura muttered under her breath.

"What?" Sasuke said, narrowing his eyes.

"Oh, nothing." Sakura replied sweetly. "So are we going?" Sakura stood up and stretched. Suddenly her stomach grumbled. Sasuke looked at her curiously.

"What? I'm hungry," Sakura muttered blushing just a bit.

"At six thirty in the morning?"

Sakura nodded.

"Let's go eat then."

Sakura looked at him carefully, "Are you sure you're Sasuke?"


"Well the Sasuke I know wouldn't take me to go see the sun rise or give me his gloves, AND offer to buy me food."

"Okay, well then stay here and starve," Sasuke replied walking back to Konoha.

"Whoa, wait!" Sakura called after him. Sasuke stopped in his tracks and turned around smirking.

"Don't you smirk at me! Jeez, I was just wondering why you were acting so weird." Sakura explained catching up to him, and the two started heading back to Konoha.

"Isn't that what you wanted?" Sakura looked at Sasuke completely puzzled by what he was talking about.


"I thought…I thought that's what you wanted, me taking you out to go places…and stuff like that." Sasuke muttered, blushing just a tad, just hoping that Sakura wouldn't notice the faint blush that appeared on his face.

Sakura stared at him, not knowing how to respond to that.

"That's what I wanted back when I was like seven or something." Sakura said.

"You were still fawning over me when we were twelve."

"True, but I guess, people change Sasuke." Sakura said with a shrug, ending the conversation.

'People change…' Sasuke repeated in his head. 'Shit…this is going to be harder than I thought.
