Setting: Outside Dark Room
Summary: Sasuke runs into a girl.
Warnings: Eeeeewwwww cooties
Even though the sun was up, Itachi was still not back. Sasuke had spend a good portion of the first half of the day looking for him, but his inability to swim slowed him down. After growing tired of wading through water, he went back to the room for a nap.
It was almost painful to be in there alone. Itachi either got lost or left, but both options defied some basic fact about him. Itachi didn't get lost, and Itachi wouldn't abandon Sasuke. He hoped. He had to hope. It was all he had.
It took Sasuke a while to get to sleep, and when he did it wasn't very soundly. He tossed and turned for what felt like several hours before finally giving up. Still stiff and sore, he pulled he began to pull his shorts back on and prepared for another search.
