The Dream

Chapter 2: The Dream...

It was a peaceful scene, birds chirped merrily as they flew over a well-worn path of stones. This path was easily discernable as a common choice for a nature hike. Rabbits, squirrels, and the occasional chipmunk were also seen on this trail, only coming out from time to time to search for food.

From one side of the serene, stony pathway came two longtime friends, holding each other's hand. Once the two came closer their identities were easily recognizable. They were two members of team Minato, Rin and Obito. They eventually came to rest on a park bench sitting down and looking at each other.

"Rin, today was a great day." Obito said gazing into her eyes. To Obito's surprise he had yet to stutter. Usually Obito was so shy around Rin he could barely form a coherent word. With the way things were going maybe this would be the day he confessed his feelings for Rin.

He looked at her intently, studying her feminine figure. Her hands were smooth with long painted finger nails. Her face was also beautiful painted with a healthy blush. Her eyes seemed to sparkle whenever he looked into them, and her smile was the most stunning part of her. When she smiled, really smiled, it was like thousand angels were smiling back at him, as if to say that all the pain of being too shy, and the fear of being rejected would all disappear and everything would turn out great in the end.

"Yeah I had fun today too." Rin replied eyes lighting with a genuine smile/

"Hey Rin" Obito stated grasping both of her hands in his own, and looking deepley into her eyes.

"Yes?"

"I love you." Obito proclaimed.

Rin's face turned bright Red and she smiled wider that she had been before. "I love you too Obito, I always have."

After her proclamation Rin leaned towards Obito, eyes closing, lips puckering. Just as Obito was about to meet her half way he was interrupted by a strange beeping sound coming from the distance and progressively gaining volume.

BEEP BEEP BEEP

"Rin what is that noise?" Obito asked, but when he looked around Rin was gone, along with the park and the bench the space was just black.

'That noise, I've heard it before...' Obito thought trying to recognize the sound. '... It sounds like an... Alarm clock...' A sudden realization seeped into Obito's mind. Rin had never tried to kiss him, the whole "perfect date" never happened. It was just a dream.

Obito sat up in disgust at his own gullibility. How could he have believed for a second that Rin, perfect in every way, Rin would ever try and kiss him. He slammed his alarm clock in anger and in disappointment.

'If only real life were more like dreams...' Obito thought with a sad sigh.

When Obito greeted his team at the training field his eyes focused on Rin. She looked just as stunning as she did in the dream. Her eyes, her hair, even her clothes they were as perfect as his dream had been.

The only difference was that Rin was obsessing over Kakashi. This made Obito envious and upset.

'Why does she have to like Kakashi?' Obito thought to himself. 'He already has everything else: looks, skill, and now Rin wants to be with him too...' watching them Obito sat down in a huff. 'I can't wait to dream tonight...'

Kakashi moved and sat beside Obito, "What's up Obito?" Kakashi asked with a cheery look on his face.

"Nothin''" Obito said turning away crossing his arms, pout on his face.

"Sheesh, why are you in such a bad mood today?" Kakashi asked glowering at Obito, watching him huff.

"Wouldn't you like to know, mask face?" Obito replied angrily.

"Um... Look whatever I did I'm uh... Sorry..." Kakashi replied unsure how to handle Obito's fit.

Deep down Kakashi didn't want to continue the conversation; the 'mask face' comment secretly offended not only him, but all other 'mask faces.'

Kakashi gave up on talking with Obito and instead pulled out a book to read. It was a book called 'Naruto Spoofing'. He considered it a good break from 'Icha Icha paradise,' and after meeting Jiraiya in the last chapter of this story he had enough pervy-ness to last him for a while.

'Would you look at that, I have the Death Note in this story.' Kakashi thought referring to himself in the book with a smile on his face, 'whoever wrote the 'Naruto Spoofing' is a genius.'

The rest of the day mostly dragged on along the lines; Obito stayed perfectly still feeling sorry for himself, Kakashi read, Minato did Hokage things, and Rin practiced medical ninjutsu.

At one point Obito told Kakashi he should go back to training, but Kakashi refused, saying that he would only train if Obito would train as well.

Eventually night fell on the Village of Leafs, and Obito went home without saying goodbye; he was too excited for night, because even if reality wasn't perfect he hoped he could count on a good dream, like last night to keep his spirits up.

Soon Obito was inside his bed and fast asleep, but as they say you can never have the same dream twice.

It was the same peaceful scene, birds chirping as they flew over the same faded trail of stones. Much like before, Rabbits, squirrels, and the occasional chipmunk were also seen on the trail only coming out from time to time to search for food.

From one side of the serene, stony pathway came two longtime friends, holding each other's hand. Once the two came closer their identities were easily recognizable. They were two members of team Minato, Rin and Obito. They eventually came to rest on a park bench sitting down and looking at each other.

"Rin today was a great day." Obito said. Once again, Obito was surprised he had not stuttered, maybe he would again express his feelings for Rin.

He looked over at Rin as if to study her body. His eyes started at her long and beautiful legs. Her body was feminine. Her hands were soft with long fingers, so far everything was perfect.

Perfect, until he saw the face, his favorite part of Rin's body, her face wasn't there. Instead Kakashi's head was sitting on top of Rin's body.

"I had a great day too." Kakashi said in Rin's voice as he took off his mask revealing his true face and moving in his head as if to try and lean in to kiss Obito.

Obito struggled to get away, but for some reason his body wouldn't move. With no options left Obito let out a scream of pure terror that was muffled by Kakashi's lips descending on his.

Obito woke with a scream, looking around the room frantically. How could a dream go from being perfect to a pure nightmare in a matter of seconds? Jumping out of his bed Obito decided that he would never sleep again.
