See? See what? He blurted out
You dont love her...
Yes I do! He scowled
Liar! Shes just there so youll have someone to cling to, face it Naruto. Theres a void, a gap inside of you that Sasuke left that you want filled, so you pick someone thats already pretty close to you already. To, try and fill whats not there, when you know deep down in your heart it cant be filled so easily, no matter how hard you try. His stare was cold and as much as Naruto hated to admit, he hit the nail dead on the head.
Naruto cupped his hands over his ears childishly, shaking his head desperately trying to drown him out,
Shut-up, shut-up, shut-up! Its not true, its not true...
You cant run anymore Naruto. No use hiding
Narutos lower lip stiffened, he began to sniffle, itsits... He sobbed, You dont understand how I feel!
Itachi slouched over placing his hands on Narutos broad shoulders shaking his head, a sincere look feel upon his face; his eyes were calm, and understanding to the point that Naruto felt a bit uneasy. Naruto bowed his head sadly,
The Uchiha took Narutos chin in his fingers and lifted his head up, then make me understand Naruto...
Narutos eyes swelled up, he shook his head, he couldnt speak, he began to choke, he couldnt take it, all of his emotions keeping him imprisoned in himself, he was going to spill, oh how he wished if anyone was there he didnt want to fall to pieces in front of a person like Itachi. The blonde began to make little childish whimpering sounds, I cant... He sniffled whimpering.
I thought youd understand by now Naruto... Itachi sighed emotionlessly, I wont think any lesser of you if you cry, show emotion, anything! I keep coming because I want to be here for you. I honestly---care about you, so I want to know, help you, but I cant if I dont know whats wrong...
Naruto was a bit taken back by his little spiel; the tears began to stream down his face,
Oh Itachi, it hurts, it hurts so much! He hysterically sobbed burying his face into the Uchihas chest, I just want the pain to go away! at his point he didnt care who Itachi was or what he had done, he was there for him, and thats all that mattered, he could trust him now more than ever, if Itachi truly meant what he said then Naruto was glad; glad that he had ever met such a person like that; that would console him when he needed it no matter what.
Itachi rubbed his back soothing him softly, Ill try, Ill make all the hurt, the pain go away, I swear it. He whispered softly in Narutos ear
The blonde looked up his eyelashes wet, glistening tears rolled down his face, You really mean that Itachi? He spoke soft, his throat ached from all the hysteric crying, he clung onto Itachis cloak,
Yes, I mean what I say... Itachi nodded
You know what Itachi?
Youre alright, I guess, well as far as murders go, youre alright Naruto grinned complicating his words,
Itachi was somewhat nodded happily, but of course, hiding most of his happiness yet it showed in his eyes and that couldnt be helped, then he gave a small hand gesture and left. Naruto sighed, well at least he had someone to turn to, he liked Itachi, and yet he still had hate for him, it was a collision of all his cares all into one. He paused a moment, he had a strong pain that ached in his heart, he hated this feeling, it started out small, and in a few weeks it grew. It was the dreaded feeling of love. At first he thought of Itachi a small ache swelled in his heart, now the more he thought of Itachi, the more it hurt, a longing sort of love.
He couldnt explain it, sp he decided hed go to someone that could, Miss Sakura Haruno, if anyone, he could surely turn to her, she was good at the field of medicine so surely she was good at love, well the only reason was that she was a girl, and he dumbly thought well all girls know a lot about love.
The sun had almost set as he bounced off to Sakuras house, he banged on her door, even though there was in fact a doorbell, he ultimately chose to ignore it.
What?! Do you have to bang on the dooroh Naruto its you She flung open the door then blinked dumbfounded, she wasnt expecting him again,
Look if its another date the answer it no
He blinked frustrated, No, thats not it! I need your help. May I come in?
She gazed confused, Oh yeah, sure
She showed him inside, then they walked upstairs to her room, a light sweet smell of cherry blossoms lingered in the room, then she motioned for him to sit down, he nodded sitting on her bed, she sat beside him,
So, whats up? Its unusual for you to come at this time... She asked
I think Im in love with someone, but I dont know how to tell them... He confessed sighing
