Sasuke grumbled as he straightened his tie. He was trying to sell his house and was meeting a potential buyer in a few minutes. His parents had always taught him to make good first impressions. He had cleaned his house from top to bottom, decorated all of the rooms to look 'homey' and even baked some cookies to make it smell nice. His suit itched; the dry-cleaners hadn't done a very good job and left his suit too stiff. He shifted uncomfortably in one of his kitchen chairs. Finally the doorbell rang. Sasuke stood and checked his appearance in the entry mirror. He opened the door and started to shut it again when he saw the person standing there.
"Oi," The boy said catching the door before Sasuke closed it.
"I'm not interested in whatever you're selling." Sasuke grumbled at the man.
"Are you Uchiha?" The man asked.
"What's it to you?" Sasuke growled.
"I'm here to look at the house." The man said. Sasuke opened the door again and looked at the man standing there. Sasuke frowned. He started at the feet. The man wore dirty flip-flops. Then there were the baggy black cargo pants covered in paint and dust and dirt and full of holes. He wore an orange muscle shirt and a black vest with orange pin-stripes that was opened. He had a bandage on his left hand with sharpie drawings similar to the tattoos that decorated his right arm. He wore a black leather necklace with an emerald pendant that landed in the middle of his chest. He had three scars on each cheek a few paint smears on his right cheek. He had the biggest shit-eating grin Sasuke had ever seen but it was completely genuine. His eyes were closed into upside-down 'u'. He wore a pair of green goggles on his forehead and had a paintbrush sticking out of the strap behind his ear. Bright blonde bangs hung down around the goggles and then the rest of his hair stuck up wildly.
"Who are you?" Sasuke asked.
"Uzumaki Naruto." The man smiled. He opened his eyes and looked at the house.
"No way." Sasuke accidentally said out loud.
"Hmm?" Naruto asked looking at Sasuke.
"You're Uzumaki?" Sasuke asked. The boy smiled and nodded. "The world famous artists?" Sasuke said looking the man up and down. Sasuke was a fan of Uzumaki Naruto's work. He went to a few of the galleries where his work was on display. He read any article that came out about the man and even had a copy of his autobiography even though it was more of a picture book and a few stories about his life. But there were never any pictures of him and this was not what Sasuke was expecting.
"World famous? I didn't know I was that good." The man laughed scratching the back of his neck.
"You've held shows in the very best art galleries all over the world. People everywhere refer to you as the youngest artistic genius in history as well as the greatest artist of the century. And you don't know you're good?" Sasuke asked somewhat shocked. The man shrugged and stepped into the house. Sasuke's brain froze for a second. Uzumaki Naruto was in his house. Did I mention that Sasuke was in love with Uzumaki Naruto? Of course he had never met the man but from his artwork whether it was painting, sculpting, sketches, or photography and his life story Sasuke didn't care what he really looked like he was in love.
"This place is great." Naruto said kicking off his flip-flops in the entry and stepping into the rest of the house. Sasuke turned slowly to look at the man now standing in the middle of his living room. "How long have you lived here?" Naruto asked holding up his hands in the air and staring between them at the front wall.
"Not very, a few years or so. The original plans I had for this house fell through and now I have to move back into the city cause I can't afford this place." Sasuke shrugged. Naruto looked up at the ceiling.
"You have high ceilings, that's good." Naruto nodded only half paying attention to what Sasuke had just said.
"Um yeah, they're about twenty down here and ten upstairs." Sasuke said.
"Great." Naruto said.
"Uh, would you like me to give you the tour?" Sasuke asked.
"I want to buy this house, Mr. Uchiha." Naruto said turning to Sasuke.
"Really? You haven't even looked around yet." Sasuke said.
"That's okay; I looked at the floor plans online. It doesn't really matter what it looks like right now because I'm going to be changing it soon." Naruto said pulling the paintbrush out from the goggle strap behind his ear.
"What?" Sasuke asked slightly confused.
"Your house is the ideal location. At first I was just going to design and build my own house but then I found yours online and decided remodeling this house would be significantly less work." Naruto smiled at him.
"Oh." Sasuke said. Naruto tapped the wooden handle of the paintbrush on the wall he had just been staring at and nodded.
"I'm gonna turn this wall into windows. What do you think?" Naruto asked looking at Sasuke.
"It's your house, why should I care?" Sasuke asked.
"You're an interior decorator, right?" Naruto asked.
"No I am a spatial visualization designer." Sasuke said. Naruto raised his eyebrow and smirked.
"You made that up?" Naruto asked.
"Pretty much, but there isn't a title for a designer of everything. I design houses and then everything that goes into it furniture, flatware, curtains, bed sheets, you name it I've designed it. My family business started out as a furniture store then we kept growing and now we build houses and in the show houses they are all fully furnished with our products and I'm the designer of all of it." Sasuke said.
"Did you design this house?" Naruto asked.
"No, I didn't want to live in one of my company's houses. I mean all the furniture in here is stuff that I designed but I didn't want to live in one of our houses." Sasuke said.
"Well, Mr. fancy designer in his nice suit, what do you think about this wall being windows?" Naruto asked Sasuke growled. He did feel like an idiot all dressed up like this especially when Naruto was wearing dirty, casual clothes but Naruto didn't have to make fun of him for it.
"Why do you want the walls to be windows?" Sasuke asked.
"Because, I like windows. They make the room seem bigger, don't you think?" Naruto asked. "Plus, with this view it would be amazing." Naruto said pointing at the open window already in the wall. Through the window you could see the city skyline and a bright blue sky. The house was on a tall hill just outside the city in a secluded area. The lot for the house was a few square acres so there wouldn't be any new houses popping up to obstruct the view.
"It's a good view." Sasuke nodded.
"You're telling me. The view from my apartment is a brick wall." Naruto laughed. Sasuke smiled a bit. "So, you think windows would be good?" Naruto asked.
"Yeah, sure." Sasuke nodded. Naruto smiled and looked around the rest of the living room.
"You're a fan?" Naruto asked noticing a few of his paintings hanging on the wall.
"Hmm?" Sasuke asked not really hearing the question.
"You have copies of my paintings hanging on your wall. Either you're trying to suck up or you're a fan." Naruto smiled pointing at the paintings.
"Copies?" Sasuke asked. "No, these are originals; I bought them straight from the gallery." Naruto laughed.
"Sorry, honey, but I keep the originals. You got copies." Naruto smiled. Sasuke frowned at that, he had spent a lot of money on those paintings. He was kind of nervous for Naruto to see the sculptures upstairs and the painting in his bedroom.
"Well, what else do you have planned?" Sasuke asked changing the subject back to the house. Naruto smiled and looked around the room.
"I was thinking of taking this wall out. It will open the kitchen to the rest of the house. Actually, the dining room wall will also be taken out." Naruto said. Sasuke nodded. "What do you think?" Naruto asked looking at Sasuke.
"That sounds great." Sasuke said. Naruto smiled and walked around downstairs a bit more, mumbling to himself. Sasuke watched Naruto closely. This was the man he had been in love with for the past two years and he was in his house right now. Naruto, although not what he had expected, was beautiful. His azure eyes took in every detail, his smooth, pink lips moved temptingly as he muttered to himself, his unruly blonde locks swayed with every movement he made meaning they were naturally like that rather than styled with gel. His hair looked really soft, Sasuke wanted to touch it, he wanted to touch him, but stuffed his hands in his pockets to restrain himself.
"This is going to be the perfect house for us." Naruto said to himself but slightly to Sasuke as well. Sasuke's heart skipped a beat. Naruto had said us and although Sasuke knew it was stupid to think it, he still somewhat thought that the 'us' included him.
"Us?" Sasuke asked.
"Oh, yeah, me and my boyfriend really want to have a house and this one will be perfect after I'm finished." Naruto smiled happily looking around the downstairs once more. Sasuke's heart stopped at that. Of course Naruto had a boyfriend. Sasuke had read the autobiography. Although it ended when Naruto was eighteen it mentioned him having a lover.
"Oh? Where's your boyfriend?" Sasuke asked.
"Business trip. He's the president of his own company. It's pretty big too; I think they've done work with your company. Suna Inc?" Naruto asked. Sasuke frowned. He knew Suna Inc. He knew the president of Suna Inc. He didn't like the president at all and now disliked him even more.
"Yeah, I know them." Sasuke said. Naruto smiled and looked at the stairs.
"Care to show me the upstairs?" Naruto asked. Sasuke nodded.
"Well, here will be your master bedroom." Sasuke said showing the bedroom. Naruto laughed.
"Well this wall will have to go." He said taping his paintbrush on the wall that separated the master bedroom from the stairs and entry.
"What?" Sasuke asked slightly confused.
"Yeah, I never believed in master bedrooms. I'm gonna turn this into a balcony for my work space." Naruto said. "Where is the next biggest room?" he asked walking out of the master bedroom.
"Um, this one." Sasuke said. Naruto looked into the room that Sasuke had pointed out. He nodded.
"Gaara's office." He said before stepping out again.
"And then there are two rooms back here." Sasuke said. Naruto looked at the two rooms at the end of the hall. Naruto walked into the room at the front of the house and looked out the window.
"Get on the bed." Naruto told Sasuke. Sasuke raised an eyebrow.
"What?" He asked.
"Come on, get on the bed." Naruto said crawling onto the bed and patting the space next to him. Sasuke sat down where Naruto had told him to and Naruto pushed him so his back was against the mattress. "Now, arm here and here then let me just get right here," Naruto mumbled as he wrapped Sasuke's arms around him and then curled against his side. Naruto's arms wrapped around Sasuke's middle and one of his legs wrapped around Sasuke's and then Naruto put this head on Sasuke's chest. Sasuke prayed that Naruto couldn't feel Sasuke's heart hammering against his ribcage.
"What are you doing?" Sasuke asked.
"Checking the room for afternoon nap quality." Naruto said. "I always take naps around this time." Naruto said.
"Your paintbrush is poking me." Sasuke said trying to reach for the paintbrush in Naruto's goggle strap.
"Touch the paintbrush and I'll murder you." Naruto growled dangerously. Sasuke immediately went back to the position Naruto had put him in. Naruto laid comfortably there for a minute. "Your windows will need to be bigger, I can't see out of them. What kind of bedroom has windows you can't see out of?" Naruto asked.
"You want this to be your bedroom?" Sasuke asked.
"Yeah, why not?" Naruto asked.
"It's the smallest room in the house." Sasuke said.
"Bedrooms should be intimate, don't you think?" Naruto asked. Sasuke didn't answer. Naruto laid there for a few more seconds and yawned.
"You're not going to fall asleep on me are you?" Sasuke asked somewhat kidding, although he really wouldn't have minded. Naruto laughed a bit.
"Nah, I can't sleep with clothes on. Me and Gaara started sleeping naked and now I can't wear anything if I want to sleep." Naruto said. Sasuke swallowed audibly.
"I need a drink." He said quickly standing up and disentangling himself from Naruto. He left the room and Naruto followed him. "You want anything? Beer, wine, vodka, whiskey, anything?" Sasuke asked as he poured some whiskey in a glass for himself. Naruto laughed.
"No thanks, man. Gaara would flip if he found out." Naruto smiled.
"He doesn't like you drinking?" Sasuke asked.
"Yeah. He's kind of protective and says I get clingy. He's probably gonna have a heart attack when I turn 21 cause Kiba and I are going to a club without him." Naruto laughed. Sasuke froze. Sasuke knew how old Naruto was but it was the fact that Naruto had said it out loud that reminded Sasuke that this man was in fact a 19 year old kid. A just turned 19 five months ago kid.
"Shit." Sasuke said under his breath and poured more whiskey into his glass.
"This is a great house." Naruto said not really noticing Sasuke's sudden change of mood. Sasuke looked up at him and smiled slightly.
"I'm glad you like it." Sasuke said. Naruto smiled and nodded.
"I should get going. I have work that I need to do." Naruto said.
"Yeah, okay." Sasuke nodded.
"Hey, do you think I can come back tomorrow? Maybe we can draw up some plans for the new house. I'm sure you know more about that kind of stuff than me. I'll even let you design the furniture." Naruto smiled.
"Sure, that would be great." Sasuke smiled and nodded. Naruto grinned and nodded as well.
"Awesome, I'll see you tomorrow then, Uchiha." He smiled and left. The door shut and Sasuke heard the motorcycle starting up and drive off. Sasuke set the empty whiskey glass on the countertop and groaned.
"Why did you say yes, idiot?" Sasuke asked. He knew this was not going to end well for him for multiple reasons. 1. Sasuke always expected to get what he wanted. 2. Sasuke wanted Naruto. 3. Naruto was dating the overprotective jackass, Gaara, who happened to be the best business partner his family's company had. 4. Sasuke couldn't even think about Naruto without risking destroying that partnership and humiliating himself and pissing his family off. Sasuke was screwed. He was in love with a kid who was completely off limits and he had a problem with paying attention to limits.
