it was a dark evening at the uchiha clan's base - the cats didnt keep it quiet though - sasuke uchiha was used to the meoing of the animals
but that didnt stop it from irritating him. he grumbled to himself wanting to get his supplies and leave peacefuly.
he lead his team towards the innermost end of the base and entered the room of granny cat.
she was as her name suggested ann elderly woman with many a cat - as well as several cat-like
features. Sasuke had aquired the necessary money to obtain the supplies needed to carry out his goal -
to kill Itachhi uchiha - his older brother.
however he needed teammates for this and thus he had gathered three other shinobi - juugo -
one who shares the birth of the curse mark, suigetsu -weilding the blade once owned by zabuza and
karin - a kunoichi specialising in sensing chakra.
all his team had their own personality - juugo the silent type, suigetsu the loudmouth and karin
the girl with a crush.
sasuke grined to himself as no matter how much he escaped it, they reminded him of his old team . . .
'thank you, granny cat' sasuke handed her a sum of money and led his tam out of the base.
'so sasuke where to?' askes suigetsu his smile showing his sharp teeth.
'with the information juugo collected we will be heading south of here' sasuke said not
particularly to suigetsu but to everyone.
'karin check if there is any chakra around in that direction"
'...' karin placed her hands together and sensed the area in a south direction.
'well?' asked sasuke
'nothing' replied karin
the group headed south and stopped along the way for another of suigetsu's 'breaks'
they stayed in an inn with seperate rooms.
suigetsu was enjoying a swim in the pool and juugo was speaking with nearby birds
that sast atop his windowsil and as for karin she was down in the small store the inn had downstairs
sasuke however was sleeping soundly in his room - the only peace he would have for a long time
- until he heard a knock at the door and a voice outside yelling
'SASUKE - ITS KARIN AND JUUGO' sasuke got up and opened the door to see suigetsu in his towel
dripping wet at the door
'what is it suigetsu? how could it be more important than my rest?'
'juugo has gone off on a rampage and taken karin!' suigetsu seemed generally worried
'hmpf' sasuke turned and closed the door on suigetsu and called back 'get some clothes on suigetsu
i suppose I have to get them back' and sasuke jumped out the window
'juugo had karin and ran off towards the forrest' suigetsu informed sasuke
sasuke turned and looked at suigetsu 'u seem to know alot seeing as you weren't there at the time suigetsu?'
'well he came charging through the pool and broke the fence and ran off'
sasuke and suigetsu ran following the destruction that juugo had created and came to a cave
sasuke and suigetsu exchanged glances and decided to go inside
it was too dark and crapmed for them but they managed to reach the end to find karin tied up
lying unconcious on the ground and suigetsu stepped forward and sasuke put his arm oout to stop
'suigetsu where is juugo?'
'how the hell should I kn-
suigetsu was struck on the neck and sasuke jumped back and avoided the blow
'juugo . . . stop this i still need your help . . .' sasuke said into the darkness
juugo appeared from the darkness already morphing from the curse mark
'juugo why did you do this?'
'i . . cant stand . . the smell . . the smell set me off . . ' juugo was trying to hold back and
the curse was progressing and receding
'juugo what smell?' sasuke asked
'her . . .' and juugo pointed to the unconcious karin
sasuke looked towards her
'. . . '
'she has a smell similar from the days i spent caged under orochimaru'
sasuke walked over to karin and placed his hand under her chin and lifed her face up
and karin opened her eyes slightly he leaned in and smelt her neck and smiled and whispered something to himself
'she has bought another perfume' sasuke said to juugo
'perfume . . .?'juugo asked
sasuke untied karin and turned to juugo
'juugo stop now' sasuke looked him in the eyes
juugo's curse mark receded and sasuke turned to suigetsu and walked over to him and nudged him
suigetsu moaned and opened his eyes 'sasuke?'
'get up we are leaving' sasuke said looking down to him
'urrrh right' ans suigetsu got to his feet
'let's go' and suigetsu and juugo began leaving the cave
sasuke turned to get karin
karin opened her eyes 'sasu . . .ke . ?'
sasuke put his hand on her head 'are you . . .
karin smiled to herself - sasuke was asking if she was ok but couldnt quite
say it outloud
'no sasuke im not hurt'
'hmpf' and sasuke picked up karin's glasses and set them back on her face
and he turned to leave and karin struggled to get up and fell back down
sasuke turned and picked her up and carried her to the cave's entrance and let her go
before juugo and suigetsu saw him displaying any kind of affection
they returned to the inn and sasuke informed karin of her perfume being the cause
of juugo going on a rampage
she understood and immediatly went to return it and sasuke stopped her
'juugo . . i mean . . he didnt appreciate the scent . . but . .
just dont wear it around him . . .
because i . . . well i appreciate it . . . and you can wear it on occasion . . .'
karin blushed slightly because she had a flashback of the cave
**sasuke walked over to karin and placed his hand under her chin and lifed her face up
and karin opened her eyes slightly he leaned in and smelt her neck and smiled and whispered something to himself**
'sasuke . . . I . . .'
sasuke let her go and she walked out of the room smiling
and sasuke also had a grin on his face
karin returned to her room and placed the perfume down on the nightstand
the lable read 'infinite lust' remembering sasuke's words
"if love is a scent it smells like you, karin I love you"
karin smiled for days after hearing those words but wasnt sure if it was true of just a wonderful dream
