Well, do they love you back?
Thats the thing! I dont know, and the more I say nothing, the more it hurts. My heart feels like its on the verge of bursting! You know what I mean?
Well Naruto, youre never going to know unless you ask...
But Im just
Afraid? She finished his sentence,
He nodded sheepishly,
Well then youll never know Naruto! God, dont be stupid, I mean how else will you find out?
He turned his head away sighing,
See? There is no other way!
But how?! If Ishe...doesnt return the feelings I have for her, then I dunno what Ill do...
Sakura shifted a bit, she had been taken back by Narutos burst of seriousness for once, she had a sudden burst of pity for the blonde a strange compassion she felt, she smiled pleasantly placing a hand on Narutos shoulder,
Dont worry, if she really cares about you as much as you care for her, then itll all work out, trust me
Narutos wide grin returned on his face, Thanks so much Sakura! He exclaimed hugging her graciously (practically knocking her to the floor),
She pulled him off finally, he grinned and thanked her again, then left, falling asleep immediately once he got home, waiting for the next day to arise once more.
Itachi, you have still done nothing, not even an attempt to kill him? I might as well step in...
No Kisame Itachi snarled, This is my job, my assignment back off
Then finish your assignment already! Enough is enough Itachi! Kisame roared
Sadness burdened Itachi for if he did continue doing nothing Kisame would step in. But to hurt Naruto, would utterly kill him.
Fine. I will. He will die Itachi muttered bitterly, the pain of knowing what he must do, a gut-wrenching decision, it made his heart hurt, a burning sensation in his soul, why, why couldnt it be anyone but him? His sweetness left a mark on him that couldnt be removed, the instant joy he felt just being in the same room, presence of him, it was a never-ending dream, but as all dreams go, you eventually have to wake up, snap back to reality. And he knew that, he and Naruto were from two different worlds, two different paths they chose to go down, now both paths meeting.
Youd better do it... Kisame muttered
Gilt stricken, Itachi trudged into his room. He sat there deciding, he loved him. He had to kill him. He loved being around Naruto. He had to complete his assignment.
No... He muttered, he arose from his seat and silently escaped through the window.
It was late, the crescent moon glistened softly in the sky, he appeared at Narutos window rapping at it softly,
Naruto turned over blinking innocently, then looked up rubbing his eyes, eh Itachi?! Her sat up yawning then slipped out of bed groggily, opening the window, Itachi came in silently, Naruto felt the grimness surrounding him,
Something wrong? He asked,
Itachi nodded solemnly, yes...
There was a long pause, Naruto shifted unpleasantly from the silence,
I was sent to kill you... Itachi choked,
No, its a joke right? Right Itachi? He whispered,
The Uchiha shook his head,
Naruto gasped taking a step back, Please...please dont... He whimpered
Thats why Im here, to tell you I cant
Naruto sighed in relief, good...Im glad because IHis voice trailed off, he looked away bashfully,
Naruto gazed at him, Promise you wont hate or think differently of me if I tell you?
Itachi chuckled, Of course, I promise, now what?
Naruto began to sway side to side, Itachi... He stuttered, I think Im in love with you...
Itachi stepped back a bit shocked, You? Have an infatuation with me? He asked his face glowing a deep shade of red.
You hate me now, dont you? He quivered stepping back, he felt embarrassed, maybe he shouldnt have taken that advice from Sakura. Bah, love was confusing.
No, no! I dont hate you...matter of fact... He slowly approached Naruto wrapping his arms loosely around his waist, Ive loved you for a very long time now...more than you might possibly know...
Naruto gazed at him lovingly, then he awkwardly went and kissed him softly on the lips, Itachi returned the kiss, but with more passion, small sighs escaped from Naruto with every breath he got, Itachis tongue roamed the inside of Narutos mouth, massaging each others tongue, both boys felt the warmth of one another so close to each other as each kiss became more passionate, Itachi held Narutos head in his hands as he kissed him deeper, it sent a tingling sensation through Narutos wet lips, their faces were so close their noses touched, Narutos whole body felt limp and numb, he would surely fall over, he was a puddle in Itachis hands. Their lips finally unlocked themselves, Naruto let out a deep heavy sigh, for once he was completely speechless, Itachi pressed his forehead against Narutos, Naruto felt his warm breath over take him, he heart was ready to burst right in front of him, Narutos warmth made Itachi smile,
Id love to stay but, Kisame doesnt know Im here, I have to go He kissed him softly again, and quickly ran off,
A sudden chill entered the room; the warmth had faded slowly, if only he could stay longer. Naruto wanted more of Itachi, though he knew he couldnt, hed have to wait for the next night to come along, though he wished once of these times he could come in the daytime. His stomach still had butterflies and his lips still had that sweet tingling sensation, it kept him up that whole night, he tossed and turned about that whole night, that one simple kiss kept him up, and yet he wondered one thing, deep in the pit of his stomach and in the back of his mind, he pondered on his choices, was what he was doing right? And one face popped into his mind, Sasuke. That kiss reminded him of his first actual meaningful kiss with Sasuke (no, not that accidental one on the T.V. show XD), awkward but passionate, just like the one he had with Itachi. But he was sure that he loved Itachi, there was no doubt in his mind, he slowly drifted off to sleep, but one question in his mind, was Sasuke happy where he was? And where was he?
