Something was off about her.
Sakura barely spoke since their last mission. She rarely smiled—really smiled, not the half-smiles she’d crack whenever anyone asked her how her day was. She’d blink and she’d say fine, her reaction almost delayed, but then there it was, the piece de resistance, the smile that never reached her eyes. And no one seemed to notice.
But he did.
Granted, Sasuke didn’t think anything of it at first—just as imperceptive as Naruto and Kakashi were—but as another day passed and another and another, without any change in her attitude, he couldn’t help but feel concerned. It was just so unlike her, he thought. He hadn’t realized how accustomed he’d become of her voice and her laughter until it stopped, without warning, without perceivable cause.
The next time he saw her, two days after their last team training, she was sitting atop of the hill that overlooked the Academy, knees to her chest, vacantly staring into the void before her. She didn’t even notice when he walked up to her.
He waited for a few moments to see if she’d finally turn. She never did. He cleared his throat. “Hey.”
“Hm?” She blinked. “Oh, hi, Sasuke-kun.”
Love it! SS family
