One Day at a Time

Day Forty-Eight: Limbo

Being with the whole team had disturbed Kakashi. It had reminded him of who exactly the girl he had feelings for was. How would their team react, should they get together? Most of all, he wondered if Tsunade would let him live if she knew what he thought about her apprentice. A relationship with his teammate was something he wanted, but the more he thought about it, the more he doubted it was a good idea.

Surely, they would be the talk of the village if they got together, or if word went around that a teacher was in love with his ex-student. At the very least, no laws against this kind of relationship prohibited them of engaging in a romantic or sexual relationship. That didn't mean that it wasn't looked down upon though. He couldn't help but wonder about how team training sessions would go, if he and Sakura ever happened to be a couple, about how their two teammates would react.

He had no idea how Sasuke might take the news. He wasn't protective of her like Naruto was. The blonde was easy to predict. He'd most likely go on a rant, calling him a pervert, sick, twisted, be disgusted that the two could even think of each other that way. His insults wouldn't matter in the end, the jinchuriki could never really mean such things. Maybe he would end up approving, since he wanted his friends to be happy.

His thoughts were cut short when a nurse entered his room.

"Sakura has waken up, I'll take you to her." The girl let out as she grabbed the handles of his wheelchair and led him out of the room.

Kakashi's mind raced as they went through the several corridors that seperated their bedrooms. He wondered in what state she would be. Disoriented, angry, scared... perfectly fine? As soon as they entered the room, the silver-haired man was relieved to hear her chatting away with Naruto, cheerful and seemingly happy.

"Kakashi-sensei!" The young woman exclaimed as she saw him, leaning forward in her sitting position, bright smile stretching her lips. "How are your legs doing?"

"Just fine." He replied, remaining brief. "What about you? How are you feeling?"

"I'm pretty good, a little tired though." She admitted as she sat back against the top of the bed, which had been folded up so she could do so comfortably. "Um, do you guys mind if I have a word in private with Kakashi-sensei?"

Everyone seemed to raise an eyebrow at her request, including Kakashi himself. Naruto seemed to want to protest, but Sasuke was quick to clap a hand over his mouth and drag him out of the room forcefully, quickly followed by the nurse and Tsunade. The older woman had hesitated a little, throwing them a curious glance, though she most likely guessed it would have to do with their mission.

"Kakashi-sensei..." The pinkette called softly when the door slid shut.

"Yes, Sakura?" He replied as he turned to her, observing her with mild curiosity.

"When Tsunade asks for the report of this mission, could you leave out any part that hints that we've been... intimate?" Her voice was quite timid, but her eyes were determined. Clearly, she didn't want anyone to think that they were closer than they should be.

"If that's what you want." The jonin answered, easily masking any disappointment he felt.

"Thank you." The young woman breathed out in relief. "Just being brought by like this, with everyone knowing what happened to me is embarrassing enough already."

"No problem." Her ex-sensei said. "I guess I'll return to my room now that I know you're fine." He continued as he headed for the door, barely giving her time to react.
