-The first book in the Shatani Trilogy-
The second book has been completed (I Know I'm Going To Lose Him)
The third has been started (I Will Find Him Again)
Jeez. The captain was such a jerk! Itachi Uchiha! Thinking he's so great because he's the captain. Do this. Do that. All the time. I just wanted to take that arrogant look off his face and ram it up his-
"Chizuru. What are you doing? Get into position."
Hell, just thinking of him made him appear. He's so obnoxious. He thinks he can have whatever girl he wants. He's got so many choices. Not me. Count me out! I mean his friend wasn't so bad but I can't stand this guy!
"I'll get there in a minute." I grimaced.
"Hurry up." he ordered
"When we get back from this mission I'm gonna ask why he's such a prick to me. He seems nice to everyone else and his mum was nice, so why me?"
"What did you say?" he asked.
"Nothing! Absolutely nothing. In position."
We crept up on our target. "One, two, three!" he counted.
We leapt forward and got the target.
It was a cat! In Samuals arms it struggled but when I took it from him, it purred loudly and fell asleep in my arms. "Cute kitty." I stroked her fur.
"Mission completed." Itachi said into the microphone.
"Can you identify the ribbon?"
"Good. Head back."
"Of course sensei. Chizuru can carry her back. She seems to like her."
"Shut up!" I yelled.
"I'll see you when you guys get back. Good work all of you."
"Arigatou gozaimasu sensei." I thanked him.
"We should head back." Sam smiled at me.
I smiled back and he blushed.
Itachi grumbled something. Sam was older then us, but Not by much.
I rolled my eyes and poked my tongue out at him. Jerk.
Chizuru : 11
"I'm not the one who slipped over!" I argued while laughing. It had been raining and the floor was wet and Itachi had slipped. Sam and I had started laughing at him.
Meanwhile, Itachi and my relationship hadn't gotten any better. In fact it might have actually gotten worse since we joined ANBU. We were young for Black Ops but experienced just the same.
"ANBU and you slipped in a puddle!" I continued laughing, starting to walk past him. He stuck his leg out and because I wasn't paying attention, I tripped over it and landed straight into a pile of mud.
I spat out some mud that went into my mouth. When I stood up, Itachi was smirking at me. Sam was laughing hysterically.
"Itachi. You are to come to the office."
We all looked up to the Old Head Captains voice and stood formally. "Sir!"
"Why are you covered in mud, Itachi, Chizuru?"
"We were mucking around sir. Pranking each other." Sam said quickly.
I flashed him a grateful smile.
"Itachi. Come with me."
Itachi followed him into his office.
"I wonder what that was about." Samual sniggered. "He can't be in trouble. Uchiha is perfect."
"I seriously doubt that. Come on Sam, lets go." he came with me in the opposite direction. "Knowing him, it's probably a promotion."
I blushed at the question. "Huh?"
"Oh come on, Chizuru! We've known each other for ages! Will you go out with me?" Sam asked again
I saw Itachi watching out of the corner of his eye. When I glanced his way, he looked away quickly.
Sam was 17, three years older than I was.
I shrugged. "Alright." I mean he has liked me for years and he was really good looking now. And he was nice. So what the hell? I'll go out with him for a while. See what it's like having a boyfriend. I mean I've had one before, but not one I knew like Sam.
He smiled brightly. "Cool. See you tonight then? I'll pick you up at 7."
I nodded. "Sure. See you then." and took my seat beside Itachi, my Captain. I was his lieutenant. And we outranked all of the officers in here. Kind of funny seeing as we were also the youngest.
"Going to enjoy tonight?" Itachi asked.
I had to admit that Itachi had gotten better looking as well and girls went even more crazy over him now then they did before. Our relationship had gotten better and we could tolerate each other now. Sensei would have been proud.
