Until one day, his smile was back. Suddenly he started being himself again, maybe not to fullest but at least he didn’t look so gloomy anymore. Yeah, occasionally he had his mood changes but that only meant Naruto was human and as any other human, he wouldn’t let go so easily of such a strong love.
Itachi knew Naruto’s plan and it was sickening. He was going to use that girl just for his twisted pleasure and take advantage of her feelings. “Naruto, please, think twice before you do something stupid.”
“Shut up!” Naruto screamed. “You have no idea what I plan on doing!”
Itachi approached Naruto, walking forward as he moved backwards, until he finally hit the wall. The Uchiha pinned Naruto to the wall and moved his face forward, so that they were inches apart. “I know you Naruto; I know what’s in your head.”
Naruto was breathing hard, trying not to look into Itachi’s dark eyes. “Why do you care?”
“I love you Naruto, I love you…” Itachi whispered. “Why don’t you just change your mind and take her out for dinner or something?”
He smiled. “Yeah right, like I’m going to listen.”
“Naruto!” For the first time, Itachi’s face showed some kind of emotion, maybe it was minimum, but the worry was imminent. It was true, Itachi really did love the boy and it was starting to hurt a lot. Itachi hated what he had become, in a way he blamed his little brother’s selfishness, but he knew it wasn’t his entire fault, it was also Itachi’s.
“Why did you hurt Sasuke?” Naruto suddenly asked.
Itachi looked at the younger boy, with his emotionless face back. “I didn’t want to hurt him, but he wouldn’t listen to me so I had to take him down, it was something I regret. I love Sasuke, I…”
“Then why did you kill your parents?!” Naruto interrupted.
“I had to kill them,” Itachi said, looking straight into Naruto’s blue eyes. “They wanted to kill him, they wanted to kill Sasuke! They were crazy, Naruto!”
It scared him every time Itachi showed some kind of emotion. But by his eyes, he could tell the older Uchiha wasn’t lying. “Itachi,” he whispered and wrapped his arms around him. “I love you.”
Itachi hugged him too, Naruto’s body still touching the wall. The temptation was too much to handle, but he had to. For Sasuke’s, Naruto’s and even his own sake, he had to regain composure. He couldn’t fall into Uzumaki Naruto’s charms.
The bell rang.
Naruto smiled, but this time it wasn’t an evil grin, it was sweet and rather refreshing. He walked towards the door and opens it slowly, instantly spotting the beautiful pink head standing there looking worried. “I’m so sorry Sakura-chan,” he apologized.
“Sorry, why?” Sakura asked, still concerned.
“I don’t know what’s happening to me,” Naruto said. “I feel like I’m someone else.”
Sakura smiled and hugged Naruto. “Hey Naruto,” she said. “I still think you’re the same as always.”
Naruto also smiled. “You know, you’re my best friend,” he began. “That’s why I have someone I want you to meet.”
“Meet?” Sakura repeated, wondering who he might want to introduce her to. It seemed pretty odd; especially because she had a feeling it was a boy. But now, she was almost sure it wasn’t a boyfriend, Naruto couldn’t have someone new. Or could he?
Naruto turned around and looked at Itachi, who was looking attentively at him. “I know this might freak you out, but here come in and meet…” he let her in and closed the door. She was instantly faced with the dark eyes man. “…Itachi Uchiha.”
“Uchiha?” Sakura whispered, as she scrutinized him.
“Nice too meet you, Sakura,” he said almost shyly.
So this is starting to seem more like an ItaNaru or more so NaruIta.
Anyways, ummm… I don’t have much to say. I would love some feedback.
