Comments: I love this pairing, and Milk Moon is sadly rotting away on FF.net. I really do intend to finish that fic... someday.
"Um," she says weakly, too sensitive to the cold wall at her back.
"We're, um, late. For the, uh, conference." Her words are both rushed and slow as she tries to think the sentences through. "We need to go. Now?"
"We're going," he says simply, and she yelps as warm breath rushes over the bottom part of her ear and up, not tickling but definitely different. It isn't like a warm breeze on a sunny day, because it is moist and she can smell tangerines.
He isn't moving and she's terrified of touching him when she tries to get past. "Kakashi-sensei? You're not moving." Ah, her eloquence is back. Now if she can just meet his eyes bravely and straighten her shoulders, with all the arrogance and assurance twenty three years of life has given her - but she can't, so she doesn't, and she stares at her feet, lips pressed tightly together.
"You look terrified." He sounds affronted and irritated, and she jerks a little at the words.
"I'm n-not," she insists doubtfully.
He laughs then, and moves suddenly so he is squatting in front of her, his face by her stomach and tilted back so he can look into her eyes. "Sakura," he says, amused, "You were the one that wanted to see me without the mask."
Her eyes jerk away and she stares at the lamp on the corner. "I never said that," she lies.
"You did," he counters, suddenly husky and low and wicked. "Right before you kissed me."
