Thanks for reading! I don’t own any of Naruto! Please let me know if you enjoy!
Sasuke Uchiha stood, not far from Orochimaru’s latest hideout, ready to try a new jutsu. Since leaving Konoha, the rogue ninja had been pursuing all the training he could to make himself more powerful. His spiky, raven hair glistened in the bright sunlight as he took a stance. As he prepared, he closed his eyes and made the hand signs. He took a breath, gathered his chakra and shouted, “FIRE STYLE VANISHING DRAGON JUTSU!”
He expected a powerful burst of flame that struck hard and vanished before his imaginary opponent could detect it.
Orochimaru said it was fool proof, so……….Sasuke wasn’t sure why there was no flame.
There was nothing.
One moment he tried the jutsu, the next there was something white over his face.
What was it?
He blinked, confused, as he realized he was covered by a cloth.
Sakura, Kakashi, and Naruto trekked along in the afternoon sunlight, stealthily approaching the suspected whereabouts of Orochimaru’s latest hideout. “Do you think Sasuke is actually going to be there again, Kakashi-sensei?” Naruto asked, a little skeptical.
“He was there the last time you all found one of these hideouts, wasn’t he?” Kakashi asked.
Naruto made a grunt of agreement.
A short while later, they stopped for a break and Sakura wandered a little way up the hill to look out over the land below, clearing her head.
Her eyes widened when she saw a pile of clothes, Sasuke’s clothes.
“Sasuke?” Sakura called, she knew she probably shouldn’t, but she approached without alerting her teammates, looking for the Uchiha male.
A blush tinted her cheeks as she secretly hoped she might find him naked.
“S-sasuke?” Sakura called again, bending down to look at the pile of clothes.
She head a very faint, high-pitched chirping noise and saw Sasuke’s white shirt ruffle on the ground.
Surprised, she gently picked the shirt up and shook it.
Out tumbled the most adorable thing she’d ever seen.
Sasuke’s new jutsu had indeed gone wrong.
He stood in front of her as a miniature, chibi version of himself. The little Sasuke chibi was no more than three inches tall. He looked like a living sack doll, with handless little arms, and footless little legs, a plump little body, round, large head and big, onyx eyes. He wore his raven-hair the same, spiky with some strands in his face.
The little chibi looked up at Sakura with a pout.
What was she doing here?
Sakura was so annoying.
“Sasuke!” Sakura exclaimed, covering her mouth, her eyes wide in shock.
“Uchi-ha!” The chibi Sasuke chirped at her in response.
What should Sakura do?
She knew she needed to turn him over to Kakashi and Tsunade but……...what if they hurt him?
He was soooooo cute like this.
She gently picked him up in her hand and patted his little head. Sasuke squealed in protest. Not being able to attack in any other way, he nibbled angrily on her finger with his toothless little mouth.
Sakura’s heart melted.
She had heard of things like this happening in her medical training, it probably wouldn’t last more than a day.
………..maybe she could just…...take him home with her?
Just for the night to keep him safe, of course.
Anything could happen to him out here like this.
Then she could hand him over to Kakashi and Tsunade in the morning when he was his normal self again.
Sasuke whined and huffed at her as she tore off a piece of his shirt and made the little chibi a makeshift, white kimono to wear.
She thought he looked even cuter now.
“I’m making some dumplings tonight, would you like some, Sasuke-kun?” Sakura asked, smiling at her miniaturized ex-teammate.
“Uchi-ha!” Sasuke chirped angrily at her from the palm of her hand.
Sakura ignored his protest and sat him down in her bag, locking him inside so he couldn’t escape.
“Glad to hear it, Sasuke.” Sakura said with a coy smile as she walked back to Kakashi and Naruto.
She would fake a headache and return home early from her mission today.
“Uchi-ha……..” Chibi Sauske sighed from inside her bag.
He couldn’t believe he turned himself into this and got taken hostage by Sakura in the same day.
The same hour!
It was going to be a long night.
