Orochimaru has a daughter? Amaya is Orochimaru's daughter alright, there's no doubt about it, although nobody really knows about her. So what happens when Sasuke meets this loud and hyper girl? Wil...
I looked to my right to see a girl, the palest skin I'd ever seen, I mean, she made paper seem tan. She looked down at me with her big red eyes, a small smile on his face. She was wearing black capris, and a shirt with the kanji for spider in red in the middle of it. (蜘蛛)
"Who's he?" I asked out of curiosity, already knowing it was Orochimaru.
She giggled, "Daddy of course."
I looked at her, What does she mean by that?
"What do you mean by that?" I asked, looking her over, her long straight black hair sort of resembled Orochimaru, but I couldn't picture him a father to anybody.
"I mean he-he gave me life, you know, the whole mother and father thing, I kinda think it's gross."
She answered, looking at me strangely, "Then again, he doesn't talk about me much, he doesn't want Konoha to know I'm alive, but that's a story for another day."
[This girl is interesting.]
Kinda. I thought to my conciounce, just looking at her.
[She seems quiet.]
"Soo, if Orochimaru's your fath-"
"She died, my mother." She interrupted, looking up at the sky, she seemed to be glaring at the sun, but I couldn't tell.
"How?" I asked, I knew getting nosy was a bad thing, and to tell yo uthe truth, this is the most I've said in a long time, but I had to know, it was gonna bug me.
"She died giving birth to me." She leaned back, putting her weight, which didn't look like alot, on her hands.
"I'm sorry," I whispered, not believing the words came out of my mouth.
[YOU? Saying sorry? The world must be ending.]
Must I hurt you?
[Not this time buddy.]
"It's ok, I mean, she was always getting sick, according to everyone who knew her, it's better she died in a peacful way, than from a horrible illness." She smiled, her eyes closed, facing the sun.
"Amaya, you really shouldn't bother other people, apologize to Sasuke-kun, and run along."
We both looked up, Orochimaru was in front of us, blocking the yellow orb thst is the sun.
Amaya got up nad nodded to her father, "I-I'm sorry to be a bother." She whispered, and just like that, she was gone.
"She wasn't bothering me," I informed the snake-like man who had taken her place next to me.
"I figured as much, most people like Amaya, she's like a disease, contagious," Orochimaru chuckled, "but I wanted to talk to you about something."
"What is it?" I asked, and Orochimaru went into this long speech about my training.
That talk with Orochimaru took longer than I had expected, about three hours longer. It had gotten dark, and I wanted to find Amaya. I searched all over the place, until I ran into Kabuto.
"Kabuto, do you know where I can find Amaya?" I asked, secretly hoping he would know.
"Yes, she is most likely in the fields, looking at the butterflys," he answered, walking right past me the second he finished.
Fields, got it.
[So, why are we going to see her again?]
*I just want to talk to her, is that
[It's kinda strange that you wanna talk to someone, a girl no less.]
I ignored that comment, and kept a steady pace to the fields.
Here we are. Fields. I thought as I crept behind trees, looking around for Amaya. I found her in a small clearing, standing in the center of it, butterflys dancing in the air around her. She was smiling bigger than a little girl who had just recieved a new doll from her father, holding out her hands, letting a butterfly land on her palm.
She giggled, "I love butterflys, but that's not why you're here, I assume, is there anything I can do for you Sasuke?" She let the butterfly go, and turned to face me.
"I just wanted to talk to you." I whispered, looking away.
"Well, I'm all ears," She sat in the grass, and looked up at the moon, "what do you want to talk about?"
I walked out from behind a tall oak tree, and sat next to her, "You weren't bothering me earlier, just so you know." I thought out loud.
"That's good," She smiled, looking at me.
I almost smiled, but stopped myself, knowing it would be a crooked one. "Soooo," she broke the silence, "what do you want to talk about?"
I had to think, I didn't want to look stupid, I remembered something Orochimaru had said about her earlier.
She's normally hyper and loud, you'll think of her as annoying.
"You can be yourself around me, Orochimaru isn't here." I whispered, looking at the grass.
"THAT'S a relief!" She yelled, falling back in the grass. Her pale skin glowed in the moonlight, as she wriggled in the grass, giggling.
[You said she could be herself.]
She looked at my face and giggled, "Sorry, my head was ichy."
I stifled a laugh, then, when it passed, looked at the girl in front of me in disbelief, unnoticed of course.
She just made me laugh, well almost.
[WOW, that's like a story for the newspaper!]
You just wanna get hurt don't you?
[No, not really.]
"Soooooooo," she broke the long silence again, looking at the night sky, "Actually, we should head in, before snakey pants has a heart attack."
"Yea, you know? Daddy dearest, whatever."
She got up and held out her hand for me. I took it, and she smiled, "I think this is the start of s beautiful friendship...unless you're a jerk, but I don't think you are."
