Dedication: to all my beloved reviewers….and even to the lurkers who I hope will review this time
"Daddy," a cute little voice almost screamed at his ear as he was just getting out of bed. "Daddy," it repeated.
Uchiha Sasuke sighed. "Yuki, it is morning, please don't be too loud."
He looked at his daughter as she pouted. Who could resist a look like that?
"Alright, what do you need," he asked a little exasperatedly. Her pretty little face literally glowed as she smiled and tucked a strand of raven hair behind her ear. She suddenly looked very very serious.
"Daddy," she repeated, leaning in closer as she looked straight into Sasuke's eyes. He looked at his daughter as intensely. "I have to tell you something."
Sasuke raised a brow. "So, what is it?"
She looked at him a minute longer. Then to Sasuke's surprise, obsidian eyes slowly-very slowly- turned red. It was his cue to widen his eyes in excitement, anticipation and pride.
"How old are you," he asked urgently, momentarily forgetting, "4…5?"
Yuuki sighed. "I'm 6 daddy." He continued to stare at her incredulously, unconsciously activating his very own Sharingan. She scowled then abruptly jumped down the bed and ran outside the door. Sasuke watched his daughter with slight confusion and still unshakable amazement. His daughter was the youngest to utilize the Sharingan-the youngest ever! If that wasn't a ninja wonder, he didn't know what is.
"Mommy," he overheard her complaining in the kitchen, "It's unfair!"
His wife's melodic chuckles reverberated throughout the house. "What is unfair Yuki?"
He could just imagine his daughter's scowl as she replied, "Daddy's looks like a flower!" His wife laughed once again. He creased his brows.
He stretched a little and decided to get up and walk to the kitchen, noting the fact that nobody else was making a big deal out of a 6 year old already having the Sharingan and instead discussing about how his precious Mangekyou was similar to a flower.
True enough, his Yuki was scowling and his wife is looking at their daughter amusedly. "No. Not a flower," he interfered, "like an atom or a galaxy."
She looked back and forth at her parents then she finally decided to go to her mom. "Mommy, what's an atom and a galaxy?"
Sakura bent down to carry her daughter and sat her on the counter. "An atom is the smallest unit of an object," she said patiently. "Huh?"
She tapped her daughter's head. "They're very small so you can't see them."
"Then how do you know they're there?"
"You won't understand right now," she replied, "you will when you grow older though."
"Oh alright," she said, "what is a galaxy then?"
Sakura whispered in her daughter's ear. "Ask your daddy."
Sasuke watched as his wife patiently explained to her daughter and whispered something in Yuki's ear as she asked what a galaxy was. He raised a brow, not unnoticed by Sakura who smiled in return. Yuki tugged at his sleeve.
"Daddy, what's a galaxy?'
"Ask your mother."
"But mommy said I should ask you," she complained.
He looked at her, calculating. "I don't know anything about those things." At his statement, Sakura laughed out loud.
She smiled as she said, "don't listen to him Yuki, your father knows a lot about these things."
He almost glared at his wife. "What are you talking about?"
"Daddy," his daughter reminded, "galaxy?"
He sighed. "A galaxy is a collection of stars and planets and it is very huge," he finally said.
At this point, his wife gracefully took on the task of explaining. "Yuki, planets are like worlds, only more…scientific in concept." Yuki nodded. "Stars are…well stars are…"
Her eyes suddenly glowed in slight mischief. "Well, your daddy used to tell me that my eyes were like the stars." Yuki looked confused. Sasuke crossed his arms over his chest.
"I never said that."
Sakura laughed. "The stars are shining brighter tonight…remember?"
Sasuke shook his head, although just in denial, not in honest forgetting. "No."
"Come on, Sasuke, I know what you were referring to then."
"What are you talking about?"
"You know what," she replied naughtily. Sasuke almost blushed.
"Mommy, Daddy?" The tiny voice of their daughter reminded them that she was there.
"Your daddy can explain to you Yuki," Sakura finalized, "I'm going to cook breakfast."
Yuki looked at her father with anticipation. Sasuke ran a hand through his hair. "After I brush my teeth," he confirmed, defeated.
Yuki smiled. Sakura smiled. Sasuke shrugged his shoulders.
Such was the life of the Uchiha family. The new Uchiha family. And Sasuke knew he'd probably rot in hell for reveling in such a blessing-but he didn't care.
Because his life was heaven. His life is heaven.
