A/N: THIS STORY HAS BEEN IMPORTED FROM FANFICTION AND ALL AUTHORS NOTES BEYOND THIS ONE WERE MADE IN RESPONSE TO FANFICTION COMMENTS.

Summary: Life sort of, how should I put, SUCKS for Haruno Sakura. Sure she's the smartest kid at Konaha Highschool and she has all the friends but they aren't exactly the type of people she could talk to, not to mention they all call her the class slut. So Sakura decided to start a blog where she puts her thoughts, a blog that her classmates don't know about. Here she has all the friends and enemies she needs, including a friend she tells everything to, an asshole who likes to argue, a sensical advice giver, and many others.

For the reader:

"Talking"

Inner Sakura

Text/Description

'talking to inner'

Chapter One: Just Another Blog

"Hey, Sakura!" The overjoyed blonde called while running towards me.

"What is it this time pig?" The blonde turned three shades of purple trying to calm down after hearing her much hated nickname. "Ino?" I said trying to get her attention again.

"Oh, Yeah! Haven't you heard Sasuke dumped Karin, he's single again!" The blonde squealed and started jumping around.

He's ours now bitch!

'No, he's not. Plus he doesn't like me, inner.'

He doesn't have to like you, just me.

'I am you.' 'Sometimes inner isn't very smart'

You're the one who just called herself dumb.

Inwardly glaring at inner I pushed that thought aside.

Look! There he is! Pounce Now! Rape Him!

Looking at what inner's imaginary finger was pointing at I saw him, Sasuke Uchiha, the most beautiful and popular guy in school. He was surrounded by a group of girls, literally drooling over him.

He's Walking Away! Quick, Talk To Him Now!

'Your right, he's single and we're popular too. There's no way we could lose to those bitches!'

"Sasuke, hey how's it going?"

You are an idiot.

"Hn."

'Is that even a word?'

Who cares he's hot.

"Okay, well me and some friends are going to the mall after school, you should come with."

You're not going to the mall after school?

'He doesn't know that'

What if says yes?

'We have our date.'

I don't think that's how it works.

'You were just yelling rape him.'

But only you can hear that.

'Great.'

"I'm busy", the sexy Uchiha said coldly then walked away.

With me

'Shut up.' His groupies started to snicker and point at me saying names like "slut" and "whore".

'I can't believe I was rejected.'

I can. I mean look at you, who makes up going to the mall, and more importantly who wants someone with pink hair. As much as I hated it inner was right, I did make up that mall crap and I do have short pink NATURAL hair.

"It's okay Sakura, Sasuke acts like that towards everyone." Naruto, one of my closest friends said while I sat down with my lunch. Comments could still be heard about this mornings events and me being rejected.

We went from popular to being the school slut.

'You're over exaggerating, it's just a rumor that will be gone in a couple days, inner.'

I was so wrong. A month later and here I am still the "school slut" and even my friends are starting to believe it. A couple days ago I even caught Ino gossiping about me.

The bell just rung, it's now lunch.

I headed to the cafeteria when some bitch tripped me, I looked up and saw it was Karin.

"Look slut stay away from my Sasuke, he doesn't like you and no one wants a slutty bitch." The redhead stated before pushing up her glasses and walking away, her little posse following her cheering her on. I just stayed there on the ground a couple seconds staring before finally getting up and walking into the cafeteria. I then saw it, everyone stopped and looked at me whispering nasty comments, and when I made it to my regular table everyone moved their stuff so there was no room for me.

'What did I do wrong? I asked Sasuke out, he rejected me, and now this. Why? I was popular, my friends? What did I do to deserve this?'

Tears filled my eyes and I ran out the door to the nurse. I always like the nurse she was sweet, I think her name is Shizune. I told her I didn't feel so well, which wasn't exactly a lie. After a while of taking my temperature and me whining saying how bad I felt, I was finally sent home. Unfortunately I'm a ophan so my apartment where I stayed with my aunt was to far to walk (not that they'd let me, being "sick".) So my aunt had to pick me up, she's really sweet but I just wanted to be alone.

"Are you sure you're okay from here, you know I can stay home."

"It's fine aunt Tsunade go back to work, I'll just sleep." I told her after arriving back home and faking my best sick look.

"Fine, I'll be back around the usual 6ish."

"Kay, bye." I said trying to smile.

She then left and I proceeded to cry into a pillow.

After about ten minutes of just

wanting to die I looked at the clock, it was now 1:00 p.m.. I still had a couple of hours to myself, so I grabbed my laptop and messed around on tumblr. Nothing really cheered me up just a bunch of post and the comments and repost, yada yada yada. That's when it hit me.

'I should start a blog about my life, maybe someone can cheer me up!'

I started the blog right away. I made it under the user/penname Pinky because of the nickname I used to get due to my hair color.

After about a half an hour I had the registration of the account done and started my first post, naming the thread Just a blog from the class slut. I debated changing it thinking it would be really obvious who wrote it especially with the username Pinky but I kept it.

'I want someone to find it and read it, someone like Karin or even my former friends. I want them to see the reviews bashing them once I've posted this.'

What if they beat the shit out of you instead.

'Sometimes you ruin the moment, inner.'

I then proceeded to write out my very long, detailed post about my life and what had happened, making sure to state more than once that I was exaggerating the events. After what felt like years of rambling on about myself I reread my post over and over, cursor hovering over the post button.

Just click it.

'I can't this could be my savior or just make matters worse.'

You won't know that until you click it.

'You're right, I won't know until I post this.'

I'm always right, and you might want to hurry it's already four and I'm hungry as shit.

'Crap! I haven't eaten anything since seven this morning.'

I clicked post then headed to the kitchen where I made a sandwich; I then made another sandwich when my stomach still wanted food and I obliged. It was now 4:30 p.m. and I still had about an hour before I had to fake a sickness some more. Heading to my room I sat down to check my posting status, when someone buzzed the door.

I crept toward the door without making noise and checked the peephole to see Hinata, one of my closer former friends. Knowing I'd probably regret opening that door I turned away and pretended no one was home.

"S-Sakura I know you're there, I just wanted to give you this note I'll slide it under the door for you." She then did just that and an envelope appeared under the door.

How did she know we were here? It's like she can she us through the door. (A/N: hehe )

'Tell me about'

"I have to go now or I'll be late for dinner and I don't want my dad to get mad. B-bye Sakura." Once her footsteps couldn't be heard anymore I grabbed the letter and started to read it.

Dear Sakura,

I'm sorry for what we did at school today and all the rumors about you, Naruto and everyone else at our table too. We didn't want to exclude you but Ino convinced us that if we didn't go along with it we'd be just as hated and made fun of.

Sincerely,

Hinata.

I sat there staring at the letter for forever not knowing what to do.

'Should believe and forgive Hinata she was one of my close friends? But what if everyone else continues or even what if she continues to exclude me? She never said anywhere that anyone would stop. In fact the letter was really short and brief, even though Hinata's shy she never would make such an unbelievable apology. Maybe I was wrong about who my friends were from the beginning.'

Maybe you're giving me a headache.

'Sorry. I guess I'm just ovethinking things.'

I don't know if you are or not maybe you should ask your blog.

'OMG. I forgot all about the blog. There could be comments and reviews and who knows what else I'll find'

I raced to my laptop and opened it up. Plopping myself down on my bed I turned on the laptop and waited for it to start up. The login screen finally appeared and I entered my password, clicked internet explorer, and opened the blog. Hearing keys rustling at the door I closed the laptop viciously, through it down on my desk and jumped under the covers. The main door could be heard opening.

"Sakura, I'm back I got off a little early to check on you!" Aunt Tsunade was right it was 5:15 and she usually got back around 6:00-6:30ish. She walked into my room quietly, "How are you?"

"Fine, I think my headaches cleared up."

"That's good do you think you could stomach some soup?"

"I can try."

"Okay, I'll make you some right away." Smiling she walked out of the room to start the soup. She came back awhile later with a bowl of wonton soup. (A/N: Which actually helps more than chicken soup in my opinion.)

I had about three fourths the bowl saying I couldn't finish the entire thing, she understood since I was "sick". This wasn't far from the truth, I couldn't eat after two sandwiches.

The rest the day I laid there thinking about all that had happened and replayed it over and over in my mind. What stuck in my mind out of all of it was what I saw in the corner of my laptop screen before closing it.

6 new comments.

Hell yeah!

A/N:

Hi eveyone! First things first I got a couple of things I'd like to say and ask.

1: The rest of the chapters will not be this short.

2: I plan on updating every Monday and Thursday, maybe Friday instead.

3: This chapter was just an introduction and from here on out I plan on making it mostly SakuraXAkatsuki.

4: There will be an end pairing but for now Sakura will have loving moments with them all.

5: I'll take pairing request :)

6: I'm having a hard time with creating pen/usernames for the Akatsuki if you guys have any suggestions.

7: I will not abandon story no matter what!

8: R&R (Read and Review).

bye bye :D
