Naruto squint his eyes at the yellow book, willing it to burst into flames. No such luck. He changed tactics by focusing on the real enemy. Die, die, die, he chanted. There is a change in the enemy's movement. Naruto is expecting the said person to roll over and start twitching violently into a seizure or heart attack, whichever seems more fitting for a painful death.
"Glaring at me won't help the situation."
Still, he continued to glare at the raven hair boy, who is none other than his boyfriend, Sasuke, soon to be victim of a murder event. He dodged the yellow book with ease as it was thrown at him. "Throwing things are me won't help the situation."
"Argh," Sasuke rubbed his temples, trying very hard not to pop a vein. Along it does seem to be a good idea of releasing the blood pounding against his skull. He just had to fall in love with a sadistic blonde demon from hell. Not literally, as this story is not in the supernatural sense. But Naruto had a right to be angry so Sasuke decided the best thing to do was not get off track, like the many other lessons. "Did you studied the book at all?"
The blonde held up his hands in defence. "I kid, I kid."
Sasuke breathe deeply and exhaled. Its an exercise he took from his therapist. It hadn't been needed until now. It isn't even close to the due date and Naruto has already failed the test several times. Too many to gain any sympathy. "Do you have questions?"
"Lots!" he said excitedly.
For the moment, Sasuke forgot his anger and directed his energy on answering Naruto's questions. At least, his boyfriend looked eager about the lesson, a rare something.
"Okay, first question on Chapter 8-1." They both opened the pages and Sasuke had a few moments of peace before Naruto opened his mouth. "Do I have to memorize the speeds and stopping distance?"
"Yes," said Sasuke through gritted teeth. "That's what I told you."
"But see, there was this question that got me stuck."
"Which one?" I pointed it out and he read it. "There is a kid 60 to 63 feet away from your car, how far would you travel after braking before you hit him. What did you answer?"
"I'll end up in jail."
Sasuke couldn't see the "problem" in this question, but Naruto, being one for observing, knew there is something wrong. "It said exactly 'before you hit him'. Doesn't it mean that no matter how far I travel, I'll still hit him?"
"Well..." Sasuke did remember a question like that on his test; he never thought about it so deeply. "I-I guess."
"That technically means these things in Chapter 8 are unnesscary and are only used as trick questions. Also I want to talk to you about Chapter 9. Who in there right mind would ride a bicycle in the road? There are like rules in here for that. Its really interesting. It also tells you not to race a train or try to beat it to a crossing. And here's the kick-off: 'Even with a tie, you lose'. It actually says that in here. There are a lot of regulations, like park your vehicle 20 feet from a crosswalk. Who the hell is going to check that? Oh, it says you have to pay a 20,000 thousand dollar fine if you kill someone in a car accident. Must be a pretty cheap body, huh?"
The Uchiha remained dumbfounded.
"Are you sure you've memorised all the rules?"
"For the hundreth time, yes." Naruto snuffed in irritation. They've been hanging around the parking lot for a good hour, all because Kiba think he's going to die by getting in the car with him. Not far from the truth, by the way. "I would like to start driving this century."
Last night during the lessons, Naruto and Sasuke had got into an argument. It was more one-sided, but Naruto was angry enough to refuse Sasuke's help. Sasuke wasn't angry at Naruto, but he sure as hell is pissed at whoever's in the car with the blonde right now.
"W-Wait, put on your seatbelts."
"Kiba, it is on. Can we please go?" He was at the point of begging.
"S-Sure, b-but what about h-him?"
Naruto followed his finger to a dark hair young man at the coffee shop. The man (in other words, Sasuke) pretend not to notice them and so the scared people of this coffee shop has no idea why this handsome young man is angry at them. They try to ignore him as much as possible, least they get kill.
"Forget him. Ok, I'm gonna turn on the car."
The ride didn't turn out as enjoyable or knowledgeable as Naruto had hoped. It was filled with 'WATCH THE RED LIGHT, WATCH THE RED LIGHT' and 'NOOOO, SLOW DOWN, SLOW DOWN!'. In the end, our beloved dog-loving character had to be treated for post-traumatic stress disorder. At the same time, the "young man" at the coffee shop was seen to be chanting devilish incantations and curses at a person called "Kiba", scaring the children with his dark aura which some claimed to have reached out to them.
"Thanks for doing this."
Gaara merely glanced at me, having not utter a word since coming onto the car. No one knows if he is afraid or suicidal. "Turn at the front corner."
"You passed it."
Naruto apologized and turned at the next corner. The blonde, so naive, thought nothing of this until they've been driving for...well, neither knew how long. The place they droved into was a place they did not shine and guns were a public safety order. "Gaara, where are we?"
No answer came from the red head, prompting Naruto to glance at him. Then it occurred to Naruto, something that should not be said. It was odd really.
"Don't tell me you...?"
His jaw dropped. Gaara was...blushing?! Naruto hung his head in defeat. So it was true then; Gaara has a bad sense of direction.
"I'll call the cops," he said, numbly locking the doors when he noticed a group of not-so-good-looking people noticing them.
He has seen the records of those who did well by the laws of the road. But papers sometimes lie. Sakura was a horrible teacher. We drove one block. One block! Because she was too busy chatting on the phone to give any "real" directions. I didn't want to be sexist, but I was not going to any female for help. They seem to have too many distrctions. On the guy's side; Shikmaru, there is no story for him. He sleeps eighteen hours a day and still takes naps. Neji? Hah!
"Take a right 100 meters ahead."
And that was the end of our lesson. Iruka' is out of town and all the other adults are incompetence fools. Oji-san offered to help; over my dead body, which is what's going to happen if I drive with him. There was only one option, one person who could help me.
"Eh, so you've come back to me?" smirked an evil Sasuke.
"W-Wait, S-Sasuke, I-I c-change-d-d my m-mind!" Seeing dark shadows behind Sasuke was eeire and Naruto believe they were moving. They seem to be reaching out to him. It was enough to faint.
"We're going to have a lot of fun together, Na-ru-to-chan."
Let us pray for the newly deceased.
"HEY, I'M NOT DEAD!"
