Still, the hefty boy was skeptical. "But they're both girls,
Awww, so innocent and naive...
Somebody in this bunch has to be at least a little innocent ^_^;...
The other two boys turned to examine the shinobi in question; for
reasons that the slick-haired boy couldn't guess at, Sakura was once
again clad in just a light mesh undershirt, running shorts and a bra,
"Yeah, we can see what she's been *training*... H_H"
Well... you can... >_<;....
"Not the bruises," Shikamaru corrected impatiently, "look at the
on her calves and upper arms; they're more defined than they were
"Also, pay special attention to her thighs. Her smooth, creamy, supple
Sadly, Sakura probably has the least developed figure of all the
kunoichi in Naruto, so she probably couldn't claim that sort of
attention -_-;. Poor Sakura-chan...
"Yeah, I guess she does got more meat on 'er." A faint leer spread
across Kiba's face, but it didn't seem to be directed at the object
their scrutiny. "Heh... I wonder if Hinata would wanna do some
Ecchi! (Though I can't say I blame him for thinking it.)
In contrast to Chouji, Kiba is... exactly like what one normally expects
of a junior high school boy...
"...I think I would like that, Kiba-kun," came a quiet, hopeful voice
from behind the boys. "Could you help me?"
The question is, how innocent is Hinata's request, _really_? I'm not
sure of that myself O_o;...
*Huh... whipped by the shyest girl in school, and _neither_ of them
it,* Shikamaru observed drolly, before coming to his fellow male's
rescue. "Hello, Hinata. I see you came prepared." He nodded down at
large first aid kit that the Hyuuga girl had clutched in her arms.
"Did you also bring the ropes for the shibari?"
Uh.... >_<;. Hmm... strangely, i don't picture either Kiba or Hinata
being into that sort of stuff. Kiba's too straight forward, and if
Hinata wanted to be kinky, she's a goddamn Hyuuga; there have to be a
billion naughty things they can do with what those eyes see...
"No, they're definitely doin' it," the tattooed boy cut in. "Ino saw
crazy woman sneakin' in Sakura's window this mornin', so she came ta
house and we-"
"Humped like mutts in heat."
Ah, ah- even if they had, would he say that to Hinata? I figure that'd
be something he'd spring on her later on, when he was feeling a little
more confident of his Alpha Male status...
It was lucky that Kiba couldn't possibly have gotten redder than he
already was, as Hinata's inquisitive gaze fell upon him once more.
_she_ watched em' gettin' busy in Sakura's room. I tried ta stop 'er-
mean, Sakura's my neighbor, and I'd _never_ look through 'er window
that -but'cha know how pushy Ino can be, right?"
Yup, that's Ino for you. A big pushy.
Hmm... 'bitchy' might have been more in character for Kiba... but then
it might not have; he's a dog lover. It might actually be a compliment,
coming from him.
*Well, at least that explains why Haruno looks like she could chew
rocks, but why is Ino getting all bent out of shape over this?*
Because they wouldn't let her join in!
Shikamaru wondered agitatedly, ignoring Kiba's pleading eyes for the
moment. *Even if it's true, it's not _that_ big a deal. Ino's not
Well, she's not as petty as, say, the girls that were harassing Sakura
before. Maybe it would be better to say that she's not 'genuinely
petty,' but this is from Shikamaru's point of view.
"Sakura, we don't have to do this!" Ino began, speaking low enough
only the people in the front row of their slowly growing audience
"Not in public, anyway!"
Sakura apparently likes to be watched, tho...
She glanced around self-consciously at the crowd of friends,
and curious foreigners that had gathered in the gate and along the
village wall, before continuing. "I don't hold it against you or
anything, really! I was just... surprised, and upset that you didn't
trust me enough to tell me about... this, and... you." Looking
distinctly uncomfortable for a moment, Ino waved a hand at Mitarashi
Anko. "And I'm worried about you! I mean, she's so- so- _old_!"
Ouch, BAD move.
Anko's actually pretty young, though; only kids like the main cast would
consider her 'old,' so she's probably not at the age yet where this
statement would be grounds for immediate execution.
Eventually, the white-knuckled fists that she held stiffly at her
relaxed, and she opened her eyes to cast Ino a steady, determined
"This is all just... a big _misunderstanding_, but we can talk about
later. Right now, all I want to do is settle _our_ fight, nothing
"We can fuck like rabid weasels later."
Provided Ino doesn't hate her and isn't dead by that point.
"I don't have a clue what's going on behind that _huge_ forehead of
yours, Sakura, but if you seriously think that you've got a chance in
Hell of beating me just because of that freakish fluke at the exam,
you've got another thing coming!" Her anger resurrected mightier than
Learn it. Live it. Love it.
As Aaaron Nowak noted, its a commonly made mistake when people actually
use this phrase in speech. I actually didn't know that it was originally
*Well, I'll give this to Sakura: she really knows how to push Ino's
BOY I'LL SAY! WOOOOOOOOO! H_H
She gets better at it later ^_^;;....
A lot of it was well-deserved, as she was one of the best female
in her generation,
Yeah; sad, isn't it?
Showing no lack of initiative, Sakura took the offensive immediately.
Dropping her stance until she was almost horizontal,
A position she's used to being in! WOOOOOOOOO!
Given her original role as token girl hostage, this is also sadly
In terms of speed, Ino and Sakura were about even, but Sakura's
ground-hugging advance had allowed her to enter striking range faster
than Ino had anticipated. The tactic left Sakura's back dangerously
IT'S USED TO IT! WOOOOOOOOOOO!
Not that 'back' ^_^;;...
Three of them bolted toward Ino in erratic trajectories, while the
fourth 'clone' shadowed the third. The pair approached from the
the odd fourth Sakura keeping the third between herself and Ino,
hopefully to avoid the blonde's notice until the last moment. That
be the real Sakura; Shikamaru could tell by the way the smoke cloud
moved when that pair exited.
I believe someone is in for a surprise.
Indeed... which is, in itself, surprising, as Shikamaru is difficult to
"By the way," the taller woman broke in after a minute, startling
Sakura, "what the heck was with all that punching, kicking garbage
there? I thought you were 'training.'" Anko's voice dripped with
as she glanced over to give Sakura an incredulous look.
Despite herself, Sakura couldn't keep the flush of embarrassment from
her cheeks. "Er... well, I'm really only doing strength and stamina
training. Most of those moves I just copied from sparring with
Sakura is very smart... but not all the time.
Her next question was delivered with a more confused and less
condescending tone. "If you knew she couldn't catch you, why didn't
just sneak up on her and clock her on the back of the head right from
This, though, is forgiveable, i think; she exercised prudent caution in
relying upon techniques that she made up herself... at least until she
"All of it?" the brunette pressed, the shock in her voice clearly
evident. "Even that possession thing you used on me?" Almost shaking
with some unreadable emotion, Anko was glaring at her now, as if
_daring_ her to say that it was so.
"Wow, are you some sort of genjustu prodigy?"
"No, but I slept at a holiday inn express last night."
...A strangely un-muffled, worried voice. Unable to stand, Ino cast
around frantically for a second, searching for the source. When she
looked up the blonde's eyes widened in complete disbelief they locked
gazes with a pair of watery green orbs peering down at her, framed by
large forehead, a wild shock of pink hair, and eight fingers gripping
the top edge of the stall door.
That is one of the weirdest, cutest mental images I can imagine.
if I picture it as SD-Sakura. *_*
"Don't ask me! All I know is she's been stalking me since I woke up,
using some sort of genjutsu, so I can't find her," Ino explained
impatiently. "The pervert followed me right into the bathroom, so I
sprayed her and followed the trail out here, but it just stopped all
a sudden. She can't be far."
"...you _sprayed_ her?" Kiba wondered, his thin eyebrows shooting
to the top of his head.
Only character i can think of where this joke would have worked; i had
to use it...
"She was using it then too? Hmm..." Frowning as the pieces finally
into place, Ino lowered her head in contemplation. *Still, if Hinata
can't see her, and Kiba can't smell her, I don't know how-* Suddenly,
she reddened with embarrassment stared at Kiba. "Aaaah! Don't smell
_me_, you pervert dog-boy!"
If you _really_ think about it... i wouldn't want to live in Kiba's
"I don't think she wants to see you right now, Sakura-chan. Let's
go home- I think I know something that will make you feel better..."
"SAKURA-CHAN! What did you just say!?"
"...A-ah- hello, Mother."
Oh man, this just gets better and better. XD
Thanks ^_^. As much as i'd like to be good at writing drama... i'm not,
so at least i can try to make it fun. I'm glad you're enjoying it so
