Chapter Text

 

 

Please come back.

 ..................................................

Where are you?

.................................................

Come back

.................................................

I miss you

.................................................

Why did you do it?

.................................................

Are you okay?

.................................................

Are you eating properly?

.................................................

Have you been resting enough?

.................................................

Why did you go?

.................................................

Come back

.................................................

You're an asshole

Sasuke blinked. Had Naruto written on Sakura? No, that is her handwriting. He feels his lips pulling upward. The first smile since he left Konoha. He traces the kanji that appeared in his arm insulting him. He wonders why did she write that, or rather, why didn't she write it before?

Sakura always takes care for her kanji to be in his forearm, a place that is easy enough to hide for both of them. He doesn't think she would appreciate her messages be read by anyone but him. She writes to him almost every day, he never answer. His wish for her to stop writing to him and that she doesn't stop is always warring inside of him.

I hate to love you

.................................................

Happy birthday!

.................................................

Happy new year!

.................................................

Naruto is back!

Naruto is back? So he had left the Village. Sasuke felt annoyance that the dobe had left Sakura alone, then crushes it with the thought of 'You left her first, and she is your soulmate'.

We did it! We snatched the bells from Kakashi-sensei!

He feels another tiny smile forcing itslef on his mouth again.

.................................................

We are going to Suna on a mission

That one, he stared for who knows how long until it faded.

She didn't write the next day, nor the next one, nor for a week. His training sessions became more long and focused on those days, his fingers always twitching with the urge to take a brush and write.

I'm tired

I wish you had been here

Sasuke felt like he was taking a breath for the first time in a long time.

.................................................

The moment pink hair shows on his field of vision, then his soulmate grabs that boy by the neck and starts janking and screaming at him, he is amused and annoyed she hasn't realized he is there.

"Sakura." He calls, and her jade eyes lock with his. It feels like watching to the sun after being stuck in a cave for too long, so he recoils on his mind and wishes he hadn't seen her.

.................................................

Would you care if any of us died?

"No, only if you did." He whispered in the darkness.

.................................................

Don't kill your brother

It won't bring your family back

He seethes after reading those kanjis and almost claws his skin off.

.................................................

Konoha is gone

Akatsuki destroyed it

Sasuke can't care beyond knowing she is alive, maybe not well but alive.

.................................................

Sasuke where are you?

You got your revenge

Why won't you come back?

He tries to ignore the trickling feeling it always come with her messages, he fights the urge to read them. Yet when the others memebers of Taka aren't watching he reads them quickly, and doesn't know if he hates her longing words or that he can't shake her away from his mind the way he did to the rest of Konoha.

.................................................

Is it true?

About your brother?

.................................................

Why are you doing this?

This isn't what your brother wanted

.................................................

Why are you making me do this?

I hate this

.................................................

The war is about to start

Please stay safe

And stop being an asshole

.................................................

.................................................

The first time Sakura saw kanjis that weren't her own, was after the war. She bites her lip as tears fall down her cheeks. "Stupid asshole."

I'm sorry, Sakura.
