A/N: *Hides.* Oh lord do I feel silly. Thank you Willowleaf2560 for pointing out what teme meant..

Okay, new chapter. This is for Dictionairy Ink for being patient with me and knowing I will randomly float away on only a sail...no boat.

And just as a quick question:


Thats all.

-^-^-^-^-^-^ -Skip a Heart Beat-

OH MY GOD. I'm SO freaking sorry you guys. I feel like a TOOL for leaving you all hanging like that. GOD DAYUM.

Chapter 2

I tried to be all that you need,

Tried to never let you down,

Still I can see it in your eyes,

Not good enough.

Akumu breathed in deeply, walking down the halls hurriedly, glancing around occasionally and squeaked when she noticed a certain was watching her for a small moment, and he smirked and winked at her. Her face turned beet red, and she truned on her toes and hurried down the opposite way, pace alot faster than before.

"Damn him, damn him, DAMN HIM!" She muttered till it was a yell, everyone turning to her with a raised eyebrow. She chuckled nervously, bending her head down.

"Aw...Now eveyone thinks I'm strange..."She mummbled to herself, walking along, going the long way to her ballet room. She wasn't one to get her feathers ruffled over something so small, but for some odd reason she started blushing at the mere sight of him.

She sighed dejectedly, walking into the room and streached, smiling happily to the girls in the room, including Sakura and Hinata.

"Good morning ladies! Mr. Cat has a funeral to attend, so we'll just be practicing the basic's today, so get on the barre!" All the female's obliged, squealing softly at the thought of Akumu helping them. She was normally in the higher class, but was asked to help the girls today, since was gone. (A/N: I can't really remember if she was in the lower class last time, buuut I'll say she was there for practice okay?)

None noticed the group of men sitting uptop, watching silently.

"So, your Kyo right? The one that kissed Akumu yesterday?" The raven haired boy nodded, smirking at the sight of the pink haired girl.

"Pleasure to meet you..."Fakir nodded, glacing to Sasuke and Naruto, whom where watching the girls also.

"So Fakir, Why don't you do ballet anymore?" Naruto asked half-heartedly.

"Because I honestly preffer writing, but dancing gives me insparation, so I like watching. What about you?"

"I...hate the tights. I thought it'd be okay till I saw the tights. Just...no." Sasuke shivered to indicate his point, and Naruto nodded.

"I can't stand 'em."

"You do get used to them, but I gave up a long time ago. I wanted the best partner for it, but i could never find one." Kyo mummbled, and Fakir nodded.

"One that would suit you best would definately not be a girl like you, thats for sure. You'd need a brighter girl. Thats always how it is, Opposites complimenting each other and all."

"Yeah, your right..."Kyo stared more intently at Akumu, who was by now pirouetteing, smiling happily, and helping the girls keep their posture straight.

"They're pretty good..."Sasuke commented, watching Sakura with a smirk now, and Naruto nodded in agreement, but watching the Hyuuga heiress.

"They're fast learners." Was the last thing Sasuke said, before he sat down on the couch, closing his eyes.

Akumu held Sakura's head up slightly higher than she had, and smiled softly.

"Land like that, and it would be perfect Sakura." Sakura relaxed and smiled, her, Akumu and Hinata being the last one's since they wanted extra help.

"If you keep practicing every day you'll get better, you know what they say: Don't practice for one day and you can notice, don;t practice for a week and the audiance knows it."

"Wow, really?"

"Yeah, its something you have to be extreamly dedicated to to get to the top. After all, it takes a long time to become the best." Akumu smiled at Sakuras distraught look.

"But don't worry, I'm sure you could definately do it! you have a strong bone structure, and that helps alot." (A/N: If it isn't true, don;t point it out D: roll with it, like its a gang.)

The door opened, and Fakir walked in, Chatting to Sasuke, Naruto and Kyo.

"Its definately a great starting point Naruto, but get rid of some of the random stuff that happens, its funny, but the story is meant to be a life lesson, remember?"

"Oh yeah...I'll change it! Don't worry!" Naruto grinned happily, then turned to the girls.

"So, who's up for some cake?!" Sakura squealed and ran straight to Naruto, glomping him.

Sitting down happily, Dosselmeyer, folded his arms, staring inently at the snake-man infrount of him.

"I'm sorry but I have plans for your little Sasuke, But he'll be back as soon as possible!" The snake-an narrowed his eyes, but the insane writter kept a smile on his face, ignoring it.

"Now please leave, I have buisness to attend to." Without warning, the snake-man left, cursing the insane one's name as she went home.

"Now now Orochi-kun, no need to be so hostile!" The insane one laughed hysterically, and waved the matter off like an annoying fly, standing all to suddenly.

"Time for some tea I think."

Sakura munched on the strawberry shortcake, glancing at Kyo who was sitting with Akumu every couple of seconds. She wasn't sure about him, but he seemed nice enough, he even appologized to akumu for being so brash to her the other day. The two seemed normal again, and Sakura smiled. Finishing, she pouted when she noticed no one else was, appart from Sasuke. Sasuke noticed she'd finished, and stood.

"Wanna go for a walk Sakura?" Sakura blinked up at him, but smiled and nodded.

"Sure! I don't feel like hanging around here much longer waitng. See ya guys!" Both waved as the left, and as they exited the shop, a comfortable silence settled between them, neither knowing where they where headed till the passed a lake. Sasuke stopped and stared out at it, looking at the ducks, an one in particular.

"Isn't that the duck that Fakir had yesterday?" Sasuke asked absent mindedly, frowning. Sakura moved closer and look at the duck, then nodded.

"Yea, it is! Aw, isn't it cute Sasuke?" Sasuke just 'Hn'ed at the question, and kept his frown on the duck.

"It's kinda weird isn't it? They must leave her here for the day and feed her and stuff at night time." Sasuke nodded to this, turning to her. She was smiling at the duck, head tilted.

"Hey Sakura?"

"Yeah Sasuke?"

"Have you...Forgiven me yet...?" He hlooked down after he asked, ashamed that he already knew the answer but asked anyway.

"Yeah...Yeah I have Sasuke. I know that all you wanted was to be accepted and cared for by your parents, and Itachi made it so you'd never get that. You wanted to kill him for ruining everything you once had, but, we aren't sure where he is..."Sakura bit her lip, but Sasuke stared at her with wide eyes.

"Y-your...not...m-mad..?"He seemed perplexed by this, and Sakura nodded, smiling at him.

"Of course not silly!" She went to laugh, but gasped instead as Sasuke hugged her tightly.


"Sakura...you have no idea how glad I am that you've forgiven me...You and Naruto are all I have left...Thank you." Sakuras face melted into a smile, and she hugged him back.

"No, Thank yo Sasuke, for coming back to us..."

A/N: A little SasuSaku fluff~! Yeeeey.

Sorry if Sasuke's OOC, buuut he is. So meh.
