Thoughts

Sakura's Demon

Gaara's Demon

Sakura looked at Naruto. Three kids were bugging him to play ninja with them. Why would he need to play ninja when he is already a ninja. It just didn't make sense to her.

At first her and Naruto didn't get along but after a few missions they soon became friends. Sasuke, the other member of her group, still hadn't showed up. Many of the girls would fawn over him hoping he would notice them. Luckily Sakura wasn't one of those girls.

Komohamaru turned around to walk away but he accidentally hit someone. He looked up and up saw a guy with purple face paint with a hood on and something on his back.

"Huh?" Konohamaru said.

"Do you need something." The guy asked.

The rest of them turned and looked at the guy. He reached out and grabbed Konohamaru by the shirt.

"Konohamaru!" Naruto yelled

"So does this hurt punk?" He said

"Put him down Kankuro or you'll pay for it later." A girl with four blond spiky pigtails said.

"You better take your hands off him right now!" Naruto yelled

"So these are the leaf genin." Kankuro thought. "Temari we have a few minutes before he gets here. Let's mess with these punks." Kankuro said. He started tightening his hold on Konohamaru.

"Let me go you jerk." Konohamaru said

"Your feisty but not for long." Kankuro said

Naruto started growling. "Put him down!" Naruto yelled.

"Your a leaf genin to. Looks like your village is full of wimps."

"There outsiders from the sand. What are they doing here." Sakura thought.

"Cut it out." Konohamaru said. "It hurts."

"That's it. Drop him now or I'll take you apart. You got that fool!" Naruto yelled.

Sakura put Naruto in a choke hold. "Your the fool. Making threats isn't going to help Naruto." Sakura whispered

"Your annoying all of you." Kankuro said. "I don't like runts or any other scrawny weakling. So when a wimp like this starts shooting off his mouth. I just want to break him in half."

Naruto and Sakura looked at him scared. "Ah fine. I'm not involved in any of this oh kay." Temari said.

"What's this guys problem. This is getting ugly." Sakura thought

"First I'll take care of this little squirt. Then I'll waste the other one." Kankuro said. He balled his fist up. He went to punch Konohamaru but was stopped by someone.

Sakura eyes were no longer there emerald green color. They were now an aqua blue and had purple pupils. When he didn't let go on Konohamaru Sakura twisted his wrist. Once Konohamaru was safe Sakura still didn't let go of his wrist. He tried to get his wrist free but it didn't work. He lifted his leg up trying to kick her but she let his wrist go, grabbed his leg and spun him around so he fell on his stomach. Once he was down she let him go.

It took Kankuro a minute to stand up but once he was standing he went to attack her.

"Kankuro you are nothing but a disgrace." Everyone turned to see who spoke. He had red hair, black rimmed jade eyes, and the kanji for love on his forehead. Sakura meet his sea foam green eyes and disappeared leaving only a few blue Cherry Blossom petals where she once stood.

"Follow her." Shukaku said

"No."

"Kankuro don't cause any more trouble or I might just have to kill you."

With Sakura

"I can't believe it got out of control again." Sakura started crying. "It wasn't suppose to get out of control." She sat there for a few minutes crying. Once she calmed herself down she looked at the sky. She was running late.

She was about to head to meet her team but she heard a noise. She pulled out a kunai and turned towards the noise. A fox came out of the bush. The fox had auburn fur, a gold belly, white paws and amber eyes. He looked hungry so she pulled out whatever food wise she could find in her pocket and handed it to him. He started eating and she started to walk away but he followed her.

"You want to come with me?"

The fox nodded. So she picked him up. "I'll name you Ryurio." She ran to the bridge that Team 7 usually meet at and saw Sasuke and Naruto already there.

"Hello Sakura!" Naruto yelled.

"Naruto I'm right here no need to yell." Sakura said

"Sakura that was so cool. How did you do that? Can we train together."

"Why even ask her. She's weaker then you dobe."

I glared at Sasuke. "Naruto you don't need to know."

Naruto then noticed the fox. "What's that?"

"That's a fox."

"Oh. Why do you have it?"

"He found me in the forest." We then went on waiting for Kakashi.

Ten Minutes later"Where is Kakashi-sensei. It's starting to get late." Sakura said

Another Ten Minutes"Will he show up already!" Sakura yelled

And Another Ten MinutesKakashi finally showed up. "Sorry I'm late there was this..."Kakashi started

"Liar!" Naruto and Sakura yelled

"Anyway, I signed you three up for the chuunin exams." Kakashi said

"That's why the three sand nins were here."

"Maybe we'll see that cute red head fight."

"Where have you been?"

"Around. Someone's talking to you."

"And who are you calling cute."

"You know you find him cute."

"I do not."

"Someone's calling your name."

"Sakura!" Naruto yelled in her ear.

Sakura hit him in the head. "Next time Naruto DON"T YELL IN MY EAR!"

"As I was saying the chuunin exams start tomorrow." Kakashi said "So no training today." He then disappeared.

Sakura waved good-bye and walked to her house. She walked in and noticed her parents were gone. "Must be on another mission." She wasn't hungry so she decided to take a shower then go to bed. She grabbed her pajamas out of her drawer, which consisted of a red tank-top and black shorts. She went to the bathroom and turned the water off. She took her clothes off then tested the water temperature. Once the temperature was at what she wanted she got in the shower. She quickly washed herself then got out.

She wrapped a towel around her body and went over to the mirror. She wiped the steam away and sighed looking at herself. "Why did I ever grow my hair out?" She knew everyone said Sasuke liked longer hair and that was one reason she did what she did next. She grabbed a kunai from her pouch and cut her hair to just below her shoulder blades. She put her pajamas on and left her room. She crawled into bed and fell asleep.
