He was home at last…
Konoha, Uchiha, home, where he had been away from for too long.
How long had it been since he left? How long had it been since he last held
someone in his embrace? How long had it been…since he last was touched by the
warmth of a family?
Sakura laughed dryly as she confessed to him that the house they
had been living in was now pieces of rubbles. Now there they were, at the
Uchiha compound, where Sasuke never thought he could call home again, but

with joyful nostalgia.
Yes, he was home now.
He had been away for so long that his daughter hardly let go of
the hem of his shirt she was clinging to, not letting him go any further.
Sakura merely smiled, amused, and did not bother to help him. He was the one
who tucked Sarada into bed and lay down to listen to his princess’ stories of
what had happened when he was away. Sakura was there, sitting on the other edge
of the bed, listening with a smile on her face.

that proved her Uchiha blood. The little girl, his daughter, made him smile
just as Sakura did.
It was not like the Uchiha household he
used to know, but…this was not bad at all, right?
Sarada told him and Sakura about when

But that smile
turned unfathomable as Sarada talked about when Sasuke misunderstood
her for an enemy and pointed his katana at her.
Sarada laughed as she talked, no

Sasuke must have been over-vigilant. A
lot had happened. He must have been too exhausted.
princess’ voice started to soften. Her eyelids felt heavier, fighting to cover
the onyx eyes. A big smile was still etched on Sarada’s face when she fell
asleep. The hand that was gripping Sasuke’s shirt fell as sleep took her. He saw
his wife giving the little girl a gentle grin.
No sight was more beautiful than the
one before him.
Sakura set her breathtaking eyes on
Sakuke, put one finger on her lips as if to shush him, and gestured him to the
door so their talk would not wake up the sleeping girl.

How long…had he not seen the most
beautiful smile, those most captivating eyes, and that heart-warming profile of
his most precious?
It had been…too long.
he called out softly, reaching out to pull her into his arm, but the second his
hand touched her shoulder, she swiftly turned around. Crossing her arms, she
stared at him sternly.
“Honey,” she spoke too sweetly that it
made him uncomfortable. She smiled so widely that her flaming-green eyes are
closed. “Welcome home…”

greater than Ten Tail’s force.
“But…you are sleeping outside tonight,
Sasuke-kun,” Sakura spoke with the unchanging smile, but her aura was even more
intense than that when she punched Uchiha Shin and sent him flying.
“S…Sakura,” he tried to find the voice
that was somehow stuck in the throat. He was going to protest.
“No excuses; or I’ll throw you out of
Kohona,” she smiled broadly. “It’s for attempting to harm my dear daughter. You
should thank me for just making you sleep in the garden, actually. And I
haven’t yet decided what to do for you forgetting our daughter’s face.”
“Or do you really want to sleep
outside the village, darling?”
“Good. Now, what are you waiting for?
Out, out,” she did not just say it, but also pushed his stiffened body out the
