... No reply only constant backing up until he hit a wall
Itachi closed in on him locking him into the wall but putting his arms up, and why do you never look me in the eyes?, Why---
BECAUSE IM AFRAID OF YOU He cried slowly sliding down sitting against the wall, I thought you were smart enough to pick up on that! I HATE you! Im soo afraid of you dammit! He hollered sobbingly,
Itachi sank down to his knees, dumbfounded, Youre...afraid of me? He asked shocked,
He nodded sobbingly still,
But Im not going to hurt you...
Oh who are you fooling?! You want me dead!
I would have already done it, no? But something always keeps stopping me... His voice trailed off,
Oh--? He was intrigued, what?
Itachi smirked, chuckled even, its quite dumb, but, its those eyes of yours...
Eh? He blinked, what about them?
Eh... Itachi smirked, patted him on the head then arose to leave.
Naruto sprang up abruptly, grabbing the back of Itachis cloak Wait!
Itachi turned his head slightly cocking his eyebrow up, hmm?
If you have no intention of killing me, then why do you come every night? He asked releasing his grasp swaying innocently,
Itachi paused, along silence settled in the room, he pondered, he had no absolute reason. Only to see the blonde, but to say that, Naruto would become more distant and there would be no chance for Itachi what-so-ever.
Oh just because... He replied simplistically with a certain whimsy to it
Umm, right...Hey could you do one thing for me? Naruto asked
Oh, Itachis mind swam, what did he want? Hell, hed do anything, yes? He said with a bit of enthusiasm
Could you not come so late all the time?
Oh, yeah whatever He said sighing, Im leaving now
Oh, okay bye then He smiled waving slightly
A final nod and the Uchiha was gone
Naruto smiled and fell asleep; he decided to let him in a bit, dropping his guard gradually. Theyre conversations got better, and Naruto smiled more, causing the Uchiha to go mad in his mind and putting his stomach in shreds. Nevertheless, Naruto only thought of Itachi has a friend, he had no intention of ever falling in love with the Uchiha, he was still in heartbreak, but he dared not to show it. He was naïve he never saw the signs, how much Itachi cared, how badly he wanted him. It was earlier, mid-day the sun gradually drifting down behind the trees, Naruto just got home, he and Sakura went for ramen, Sakura, was quite bored and left shortly after, so bummed, he sat on his bed sighing.
He turned and grinned, Youre kinda early He said to Itachi who leaned, poised against the wall,
I got tired of waiting He said simply, Sooo what happened? He asked teasingly
The girl I like, we went out. I dont think she likes me He laughed,
Werent you just in a relationship? Youve already moved on? Damn. He knew know, that the only feelings Naruto had for him were only friendly. No love. Infatuation. Nada. He had to knock him out of this that girl, had no love for him, and yet, he loved her. He couldnt allow the blonde anymore heartache, or to fall for anyone for that matter.
Well, yes, I was. But were over. Hes been gone for months, why?
I dont know. It seems like you got over it quick...
Quick? He asked blankly,
Yeah quick, its only been a few month, no?
Yeah, I guess youre right, I shouldI am over him
Liar, you stuttered
Naruto heavily sighed sadly, So Im not totally over him, but still, I cant be sad anymore. I need to move on eventually... He said plastering on a fake grin, lying to him and himself.
Itachi rolled his eyes pressing his forehead against Narutos, Who are you kidding? He laughed, You look miserable, I can see it in your eyes
Nothing gets past you... He murmured bitterly
But... The Uchiha began, if you still in pain, why try to love again? Youre setting yourself up for more heartache then you could possibly handle.
I have nothing to lose, I guess...plus shes pretty... He lied
Oh, now I see... Itachi rolled his eyes
