Grabbing her notecards that she’d been using to study for an upcoming history exam, Sakura exited her house. Her feet carried her, almost unconsciously, to Sasuke’s house. It was routine by now, her going to pick up Sasuke before school and then
forcinghim quizzing her with the meticulously made flash cards.
Bounding up the rest of the walk, she rapt three times on the Uchiha’s door. Hearing Mikoto call that the door was open, since she was over at their house daily, she opened the door and slipped inside. Grinning, she gave a slight wave at Sasuke’s parents.
"Ohayo. You guys ready for your trip? You don’t have to worry about Sasuke here," she joked, slinging an arm around her friend. "I’ll make sure he does all his homework.” She knew Sasuke didn’t really need her to help him. He was fine on his own, but she couldn’t help teasing him. They often did their homework together anyways.
Giving Sasuke’s hair a s l i g h t ruffle, she let her arm drop. “You ready for school yet Sasuke-kun? I want to make sure that we get good seats in homeroom.”
"Hn." Sasuke only greets her with a noise. He eats his pancakes in silence until the quirky pinkette comes to join him. He doesn’t react to the arm slung around him, just eats around it and shakes his head when she pretends she’ll help him with his homework. It’d probably be the reverse way around. Mikoto smiled at her. "We appreciate that, Sakura-chan. How is your mother?" She hums a tune as she walks through the kitchen putting away ingredients.
Sasuke swats at Sakura’s hand as she ruffles his hair and glares at her. He stands, takes his last bite and brings his plate to the sink. "Yes. Let’s go." He replies flatly. School wasn’t really that exciting to him. He was often just so bored in class. Luckily Sakura and Naruto were there always distracting him. Even if they -especially Naruto- would benefit from actually paying attention.
His mother comes to stand by him and strokes the top of his head. He’s almost as tall as she is now. She fixes his bangs and squishes his cheeks. "Kaasan.. Stop." He scowls. "I just want to look at my beatiful boy." She says, still smiling. "Now, it’s time for school. Don’t you dare be late!" She kisses him three times, once on each cheek and once on his forehead. "Kaasan, please, I’m too old for that!" He rubs his cheeks turns away from her. “I’m fourteen!”. His mother looks a bit defeated, she is proud of her son, but a bit sad that he’s growing up so fast. Itachi at least lets her kiss him on the cheek still. "All right.. I won’t kiss you anymore, dear." "And don’t call me that either!" He walks off, grabs his bento off the table, his bag from the floor and walks out.
"Remember, we will call tonight!" She calls after him, waving and shaking her head.
Sasuke waits for Sakura at the door and then walks out. "I’m going! Kaasan, tousan!" He calls. His mother replies with a goodbye, his father just grunts.
Outside he sighs and rubs his face again, glancing sideways at Sakura. "You’re enjoying this, are you?" He grumbles. They have to hurry to catch the bus.
