届かない想いは胸の底に降り積もっていき、溜め息に変わる。そんなとき、決まって頭は仕事のことを考え始め るのだ。

As for those thoughts/feelings that didn’t reach (anyone), they were bound to fall and pile-up at the bottom of her chest; then, (they would) transform into sighs. At such times (when she thought about how those thoughts were being collected), her mind always began to think about her work.

まとめなくてはいけない資料。目を通すべき報告書。

It is absolutely necessary (for me) to compile the documents. I should be looking over the written reports.

いつのまにか仕事モードになっていた自分に気づき、サクラは苦く笑った。

Before she knew it, she noticed that she had been in work-mode. Sakura bitterly smiled.

――こりゃ、いのが心配するわけだ。。。

―― Well, it’s because Ino is concerned (about me)…

次号、サクラの恋博打!!
Next issue, Sakura’s gamble of love!! (==love-gambling)

[T/N]

* First sentence didn’t specify it’s to Sasuke, per se. So I left it open as “anyone”. This will probably change once I read the rest of the prologue, for the context.

*降り積もって can also be “to lie thickly”. But the meaning is like something that is ‘piling-up”

*決まって= usually or regularly, I’m using “always” for now, until I get more context about the tone OTL.

*資料 could be work, data, materials, tools, etc. I would need the rest of the passage to know what this refers to.

* So if it’s in the narrator POV, まとめなくてはいけない資料。目を通すべき報告書 should be like “There were documents that she must compile. There were written reports that she should be looking over”. But I thought that was too unnatural, so I switched the POV.

持ちかけた= Offered a suggestion or proposed an idea

相談事= Something to discuss or consult about

Her lipstick stains like acid rain
Dissolving away my self restraint
The streetlamps burned through the cloak of the fog
Concealing the violence, I’ve been stung by the wasp

a/n: i am papasuke+salad trash. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
summary: mama’s not home for the weekend and the fever sarada catches herself is something fierce.


there is a sudden clap of thunder, and it is immediately followed by a shrill cry from the baby’s cot.

he wastes no time rolling out of bed. although fatigued from his recent mission, he dutifully trudges to sarada’s crib and gently picks up his crying toddler.

“shh, sara-chan,” he coos gently. the room is quiet save for the sound of rain and wind against the windows. 

he presses his back to the wall before he slides into a sitting position on the floor. 

“no, no, don’t cry. papa’s here.”
