Yamato stood there with the others waiting for Sakura to meet them. He started to sweat anxiously waiting to here what had happened to cause the death of two shinobis which they had already disposed of. Kakashi had only told them that it was Sakura who killed the two. Said girl walked up to them with a child trailing happily behind her.
"What," Yamato asked nodding his head to the child, "happened?"
"Yeah tell us Sa- Cat-chan!" Naruto yelled, curious on what happened with the two bodies.
Sakura snarled, "Those bastards were hurting him. Come." Without another she took the boy's hand and led him by her side. They followed
Yamato's eyes widened at the discovery then darkened as he remembered the last time someone had hurt a child. The only thing Sakura ever cares about is her mission and children. Making sure to never, ever, fail or lose a teammate in a mission. And for some odd reason, she has a soft spot for children.
He and Sakura were on a mission to retrieve a forbidden scroll, while on the way, they passed an old women with two kids being harassed and threatened by three shinobis. The way Sakura's eyes darkened and the way her lips formed a wolf like snarl had definitely scared him. Sakura had beaten them so bad that they couldn't blink. It had hurt too much to blink. She then plundged her katana right into their hearts, smearing off the access blood onto them, once again writing the kanji for pain. 'Should've seen how gentle Sakura was when healing the two kids.' Yamato thought. He was brought out of his thoughts when the door opening and a gasp was heard.
"Oh you've found him Cat-san! Thank you so much child. This is my grandson Akio." The old lady said with a relieved smile as Akio ran into her arms. "What could I ever do to repay you?"
"Well you could give us some rame- OW!" Naruto screeched holding thigh.
"That's fine Mizuka-san. We won't need anything in return." Sakura said with a small but genuine smile, ignoring the glare from Naruto at her back for pinching his thigh.
"Oh are these you're friends? Why don't you come on in." She led them in before Sakura could do anything to intervene.
"Baa-chan, how do you know Sakura-chan?" Naruto asked.
The others leaned in closer to the old women who sat down on the couch.
"Well, it was when I went to the woods with Akio and his friend, Daichi. I was picking herbs when I heard a scream. It was Akio and Daichi. Two ninjas were threatening them and later, me. They..." Mizuka drifted off, "...Anyways, that was when Sakura-chan jumped in. She saved us. So now we owe her our lives."
"You don't owe me anything Mizuka-san." Sakura said with a small smile.
"You're the person Sakura-chan saved?" Yamato said as he drank some of the tea she offered.
"We're very sorry Mizuka-san but we have to go now. We are only staying in this village for the night." Sakura interrupted before the conversation could continue.
"I understand. I hope to see you and you're friends again." She said with a sad knowing smile.
"We are so sorry we forgot to introduce ourselves. I'm Kakashi Hatake, this is Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha, Sai and Yamato." Kakashi said indicating to each person.
"Thats fine. What a great team it is you have Sakura-chan."
Sakura nodded as they left the house.
"What a great team it was." Kakashi thought bitterly. "I truly hope that there will be a team called team 7 again."
"Come. We will get food for tonight and the rest of the journey." Sakura commanded.
A/N-Sorry it was so late. I know this chapter is boring. Hell, even I thought it was a bit. Well, the next chapter will probably be more interesting.
