Okay, seeing as how my boyfriend keeps making fun of me for saying I write fanfiction and never posting anything I decided I would. Here. Where no one will ever see it. BWAHAHAHAHA.

It's rated G and quite pointless. However, I've been getting sick of people saying there was no reason for Naruto and Sakura to keep going after Sasuke, so this is the first in a tiny series I want to write about why they do it.

By the way, I wrote this at like 4 am in about 5 mins. I hate  writing drabbles really, because I'm not poetic enough.



They both knew the impossibility of their mission. Though they never spoke about it aloud, they could feel it in the bitter-sweet feeling that passed in the air between them when they caught each other's eye, in the movement of their lips when they forced their smiles, in the desperation that was apparent in each of their movements. But they would never give up, not on Sasuke, not on their team. They knew that there had been something special between the four members of Team Seven, something they'd all taken for granted because they'd failed to notice it was there. Not the Sannin, not the Yondaime's gennin team, not even any of the Rookie Nine had ever had a bond like Team Seven. It had been an intangible energy that flowed in and out of each of them, completing them and taking everything away. It made them feel full but never satisfied.


To Naruto, Sasuke and Team Seven had represented everything he'd ever wanted. You didn't pick your family and you didn't pick your team. Naruto was aware that his team was probably the closest he could ever hope to get to real family. Naruto accepted it when Sasuke said he'd never understand what Sasuke had been through. Naruto had no blood relatives and he didn't expect nor plan that he ever would, but sometimes Naruto wondered why bleeding for each other, onto and into each other, wasn't good enough.


Sakura had a family. She was the only member of Team Seven with that privilege and sometimes she felt guilty for it. She hadn't understood her teammates then and she knew she never would never have such a tie to any of them that they shared. But still, being the only one who knew what it was to live with a normal mother and father in a normal house with a normal cat and normal goals, she saw that she was just as important to the team as any of the others. She stabilized things. Without her there would be no Team Seven, just like there was no Team Seven without Sasuke. The team existed in body, but it's breath wasn't there. What good what the heart, brain, and legs if the body couldn't breathe?


Sasuke did his best to never think about his life with Team Seven. He couldn't afford to be distracted from his goals. He'd swore to himself over and over that nothing was worth having if Itachi was still alive. Nothing was worth the weakness he felt inside when he was in Konoha. Everything was worth sacrificing if it meant his brother's death.
