A Flower Blooms

Work Text:

Sakura stands strong, stronger than she’s ever dared herself to be. She is covered in dirt and blood and sweat, and she smiles. Smiles because it feels right, because her hair is short and more red than pink and she is better for it. She smiles because this is who she’s supposed to be and she was a fool for ever believing otherwise. She smiles because she is dirty and injured and ugly and better than she’s ever been.


She smiles because she is free.
