Underline is emphazing. Italics is thoughts and CAPS IS SHOUTING. I think.
Sadly, I didn't bring any official formalwear, so I just took a shower and put on some fresh deodorant, and put on a pair of black jeans, a maroon long sleeved shirt, orange vest, and black shoes. I checked my clock; it was 7:40.
"Ugh…I have to wait 20 minutes!" I said to myself. I turned on the TV.
"Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?" The TV sang
"SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!" I sang. There are two ways to make 20 minutes pass: 1.) Eat ramen, and 2.) Watch SpongeBob. I chose to do number two. Then, 5 minutes before 8, I went to pick up Sakura-chan. Stay nice, calm, and collected Naruto. Nice, calm, and collected.
It was 7:55 P.M. when I heard a knock at my door. It must be him. OK Sakura, stay nice and calm. I told myself. But inside, Inner Sakura was screaming DATE TIME! YAY! Before I answered the door, I did a quick double take of myself, making sure that my lipstick was right, my hair was still neat, and my outfit wasn't messed up. I opened the door.
"Good evening, Naruto." I greeted him.
"Good evening, Sakura-chan. Lovely dress!" Naruto complimented me.
"Thanks. Nice outfit." I said. Naruto smiled and nodded. I was wearing a pink dress with floral designs, and it was mid-shin length. For shoes, I was wearing ink black high heel boots, which Temari made me pack when she was at my house that day. My hair was curled, well, as curled as it could be. I had on little blush, some red lipstick, and some eye liner. I don't know why I was wearing all that makeup, we were just going out for a walk.
"So, are you ready to go?" Naruto asked me. I nodded and we left. We walked out of the building in silence, then started talking once we got outside.
"Wow, the sky's really pretty at night." I said.
"Yeah, it sure is, but not as pretty as you." Naruto said. A light blush powdered my cheeks.
"You're so sweet, Naruto! Stop it!" I said, playfully giving him a little push.
"I can't help it. It's in my nature." He said. We continued walking, looking up at the sky.
"Do you wanna…uh…maybe…sit in the grass? I brought a blanket." Naruto asked. I asked him where the blanket was. "I hid it so I wouldn't have to carry it around." He answered. Naruto then led me to a tree with a nearby bush by it, which had some flowers growing on it. Naruto circled the bush, bent down, and then pulled out two things. He pulled out the blanket and a bouquet of roses, tulips, and, of course, the flower that I was named after. "Here, these are for you." Naruto handed me the flowers.
"These are beautiful Naruto! Thank you, Arigato!" I told him, smiling. He smiled and then sheepishly rubbed the back of his head.
"It was nothing." Naruto said.
"Let's sit somewhere nice so we can see the stars." I said. He nodded and then we found a spot a few feet away from a little growing tree. The tree had no leafs on it, so it didn't block the view of the star filled sky. Naruto spread out the blanket and we sat down. I stared up at the sky.
"Oh, these stars bring memories back," I say.
"What kind of memories?" Naruto asked.
"Good, happy memories. I remember when I was kid, my mom, dad, and I would go camping during summer vacation and we would stare up at the sky making up stories of how the stars were made." I responded.
"Can you tell me one?" Naruto asked curiously. I thought for a moment, thinking of how the story began.
"It was the evening of God's Mom's birthday, and his mom was out with friends having girl time. God thought that it was be good to surprise his mom with a birthday cake, so he tried to make one. The only problem was the God wasn't really much of a chef," I said. "The man got out some eggs, milk, the basic ingredients for cake mix/batter. He cracked the eggs into a bowl and mixed them into milk that he poured into the bowl. God wanted the inside of the cake to be colorful, and he thought the way to achieve that was to dye the flour, with edible food dye of course. So that's what he did. The man got out another bowl and got out some powder and food dye. He slowly dumped the flour into the bowl, and adding in dye every now and then. He then took his hands and hand mixed the dye and the flour. It looked so colorful, all of the colors just amazed him! God took a handful of dyed flour into his hand and held it up close to his face, a few millimeters under his nose. Suddenly, God breathed in some of the flour and sneezed, and a cosmic wind blew, sending the dyed flour out of a nearby window, into the distance." I said. "And that's how the story ends. After that day, God rarely made cakes, because he didn't want to make any more stars."
"What a nice story. I like it!" Naruto said. He then looked at me and smiled, I smiled back. We continued to look at each other for minutes, until I looked away blushing.
"I could have never done that. You know, tell stories to family members." Naruto glumly said. He then suddenly got all serious curious. "How is it like to have a family?" Naruto questioned me.
"It's ok. Sometimes things can be good, other times things can be bad. The…mood of the house you can say…can change very suddenly because of the people in it, even if it's just three people like me, my mom, and my dad. For example, my mom and I could get in a fight and the house could get all tense. In a way, you're kind of lucky." I explain and then tell Naruto.
"How am I lucky? Because I'm all alone?" He asked.
"No, no. I think of it as you have no one to boss you around and tell you what to do all the time. You have no curfew, no rules. You can do you want. I have chains, even if those chains are light and even if there aren't that many. I still have chains." I tell him.
"But you have someone to help you through times, those that are good and bad. When I was younger, I had no one to tell me that all the hate from the village was going to go away, that everyone would somehow like me. No. I always thought that people would hate me, that they would always think of me as a monster." Naruto said. He then shift positions; from legs out to him hugging his legs and resting his head on his knees.
"Oh Naruto," I say to him, scooting closer. "You're not a monster! No one says that! You're a good person. If anything, you're a really great friend, even when you're being super stupid and annoying and all I want to do it punch you." I say to him. Naruto looks at me again.
"You really think so?"
"I know it for a fact. Ask anyone, ask everyone. They'll say you're a nice person." I say to him. He hugs me.
"Thanks, Sakura-Chan. You're a wonderful person to, even when you yell at me and punch me." Naruto said to me. I smile a little at him and hug him back.
"Thanks Naruto." I said. He then falls back and stares at the stars with me on top of him (because for some reason I still haven't let go of him). As we were watching the sky, Naruto and I saw a shooting star.
"Look at that!" I softly shouted, and pointed where the star streaked the sky.
"You know what they say, when you see a shooting star, make a wish." Naruto told me. I closed my eyes and thought. I wish that someday, I'll get to date Naruto-kun. I thought. A light blush then dusted my cheeks.
"What did you wish for?" Naruto asked.
"I don't know if I can tell you. What if these shooting star wishes are like birthday wishes? What if they don't come true if I tell you?" I jokingly ask him.
"I'll tell you my wish if you tell me yours." He says. I then think about the deal.
"Uh…fine. I wished that someday I'll…find that special someone." I tell Naruto.
"Really? I wished for the same thing. I wished that someday, that special girl will like me and we'll go out." Naruto told me. Was he talking about Hinata, or…me?
"Tell me about 'that special girl'." I tell him.
"OK. Let's see. She likes this other guy, but I think she likes me too. And I really like her." Naruto said. "And her hair is…it's not an abnormal color, but it's not, natural. And I like it." He continued.
"What color is her hair? Karin's red? My pink? Hinata's deep dark blue?" I asked, curious.
"It's not Karin's red. Her hair color is your pink, or Hinata's blue." Naruto answered.
"Why don't you ask her out?" I asked.
"Well, because like I said, she likes this other guy." Naruto responded. I reply with a simple "Oh." He then swiftly rolls over on the blanket, so now Naruto is on top of me.
"Naruto! Get off of me!" I shout at him. He laughs, and his laugh makes me laugh.
"NEVER!" He playfully shouts.
"Naruto Uzumaki, get the heck off of me before I knock you into next week!" I tell him.
"No thanks!" He smiles and I sigh.
"Same silly Naruto." I tell him. He smiles at me and I smile back. He looks at me, into my eyes.
"You have such lovely eyes." He tells me. I blush.
"Thanks. You have nice eyes too." I tell him, a bit shyly. He blushes, which makes me blush even more. I don't know why. We stare at each other for a while before anything really happens, but then Naruto leans in and kisses me, right on the lips. My eyes widen in shock, but eventually close, embracing the movement. Naruto bit my lower lip, begging for entranced. I sighed and obliged. Our tongues were soon in a battle for control, a battle for power, who will lead the kiss. Oh Naruto-kun. I thought to myself.
End of Date
"I'll see you tomorrow, okay?" Naruto said. We were standing outside my summer camp room door.
"Uh…yeah. I'll see you tomorrow." I said. I unlocked and then opened my door. My hand was then yanked and I was pulled into Naruto's arms. He kissed me again, a deep kiss like before. A few minutes later, he broke away.
"Good night." Naruto smiled.
"Good night…Naruto-kun." I said, blushing. I then kissed him on the cheek and slipped into my door. I then closed it and locked it, force of habit. Naruto then went back to his room; I heard his footsteps get softer and softer.
I think I have a…boyfriend. I sighed. These two were definitely going to win this bet.
Misa: Thank GOD this chapter is DONE and FINSIHED.
Naruto: It's about time, Misa.
Misa: Shut up. Oh, and something Sakura forgot to mention. The date was an hour and a half long because Naruto and Sakura were stargazing and then went for a long walk. And skipped some rocks on a nearby pond.
Naruto: That last one about the rocks was a lie.
Misa: Naruto, shut up. Please. You're ruining it.
Naruto: What's there to ruin?
Misa: Goodbye everyone! See you next time!
