Between a Scarecrow and a Cherry Blossom

Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto or any of its characters and make no money from this. Masashi Kishimoto does.


Number Five

Life was an assemblage of various events and people that were unpredictable. Kakashi knew it. Yet, he still tried to control everything. Perhaps because things tended to get out of hand if he didn't. Still, sometimes, the best moments of his life were triggered by actions completely out of his control; actions that forced him to act himself.

For once, he could thank Naruto for being such an idiot.

"Kakashi-sensei! Sakura! Me and Sasuke are going to go spar, bye!" Naruto exclaimed as he dragged Sasuke by the collar out of the clearing where their camp was set up.  The Uchiha looked creeped out, even though his body remained limp.

Kakashi desperately wanted to protest and force them to stay. He hadn't been alone with Sakura since their kiss on White day. No matter how hard he tried, no valid argument formed in his mind.

"Are you okay, Kakashi-sensei?" Sakura asked, certainly noticing the distraught look on his face.

"Yes," he replied simply, though he avoided meeting her gaze.

"Is it because of the other night?" she whispered, nibbling on her thumb.

Kakashi remained silent, unsure of what to say. Should he admit he had more than enjoyed the kiss? Her motive was still unclear to him, so making a decision was near impossible.

"I'm sorry," Sakura sighed, running a hand through her pink tresses. "It was stupid to think that you would--"

"Sakura-chan!" Naruto shouted in the distance, enthusiastic as always. "Shooting stars!"

As they both looked up to witness the unusual phenomenon, Sakura's interrupted sentence replayed in his mind. She was to stupid to think that he would what? While he watched the light of one of the stars disappear, it dawned on him. To say that if Naruto hadn't told them about the stars, he might have missed it.

"Sakura," he called softly, tone confident. "You're the star of my world."
