AN: This is just a short chapter that I wanted to write but wouldn't have really fit into the main story, so I just decided to add it here I hope you all enjoy it. If anyone here had been reading my Naruto/Code Geass story I do want to make it clear that this isn't one of the stories I said I'd be updating before getting back to it.

The Second Condition
As winter was finally coming to an end nobody seemed to be as happy in the changing of the seasons as Rumiko Nonaka. It wasn't odd to see Rumiko suddenly burst into a fit of giggles and a delighted smile to spread across her face for no apparent reason most days. Though everyone asked her what had her so happy Rumiko never gave anything away, as she waved it off as nothing important, though Kushina seemed to have an idea of what it was by the knowing smile on her face that would appear whenever anyone brought up Rumiko's strange behavior. But whenever Rika Nonaka heard her mother giggle she couldn't help the small feeling of dread that crawled up her spine.
Rumiko's excitement finally came to its highest point one weekend after she received a phone call on her cell phone. "Naruto, Rika!" The blonde woman called cheerfully to the two teens who were relaxing out by the back garden near Rika's room after a stressful week.
"Kaa-san?" Rika asked slightly unnerved by how happy her mother was acting, "What is it?"
"Get ready, you two we are going out!" She replied happily.
"Where?" Naruto asked tilting his head to side curiously.
"That's. A. Secret." Rumiko answered him with a wink before grabbing the two tamer's hands and practically dragged them to the front door. "Now come on you two we don't have any time to waste!"
A few minutes later the two blondes and one redhead stood outside a building that Rika recognized from the few times that her mother had managed to drag her there before, though Naruto was still confused on exactly where they were as this was the first time he had ever been there. It was a tall pristine white building with people busily working inside; it was a famous and accomplished modeling agency building that hosted many of Rumiko's photo shoots for when she had work specifically in Shinjuku.
"Kaa-san what are we doing here?" Rika asked with a groan. "I thought we were done with this." She said in exasperation.
"No, I just agreed not to make you model any more dresses for photo shoots." Rumiko stated, "The clothes I have picked out are ones I'm sure that you're going to like, Kushina agreed that there were nice so I'm confident that you'll like them."
"What am I doing here then?" The blonde shinobi questioned confused.
"You're going to be in it too of course." Rumiko answered in a matter of fact voice as she walked into the building.
"What?!" The two teens shouted in surprise before following after the smiling blonde woman.
"Why?" Naruto asked with Rika just as curious beside him.
"Do you two remember my two conditions I had you both agree to in order for me to transfer Rika to the public school?" Rumiko asked them instead getting a nod from both of them.
"Yeah, the first condition was that I had to go to that stupid private school for an entire school year." The redheaded tamer began.
"You never told us what the other condition was." The cerulean eyed tamer finished, though both were starting to get an idea of what the second condition was at this point.
"This is the second condition." Rumiko said confirming the two teen's thoughts. "I want you two to be part of a photo shoot that I've set up with the help of a friend of mine." She told them walking onto a set where everything was already set up. "First we will start off with Rika before going on to you Naruto-kun." Rumiko explained before greeting the cameraman in a friendly manner.
Not too long later Rika was escorted to the dressing room in order to change her clothes for the first session. Naruto stood off to the side nervously not sure if there was something that he was supposed to be doing while waited, soon Rumiko rejoined her fellow blonde and started the rare and strange task of trying to get rid of the blonde teen's nervousness. A couple minutes later Rika finally emerged from her dressing room. Naruto couldn't help but to stare at the girl in awe with his mouth hanging slightly open.
Rika was wearing a blouse the same color as her eyes, with a small white heart on the left edge of her shirt and a fox surrounding the heart, neither teen had any doubt about why Rumiko chose that particular shirt for Rika. She still had on a pair of jeans but they were a lighter color than the ones she normally wore and were cut off shorter, and with a simple pair of sandals on her feet. Around her neck of a crystal blue gem necklace similar to the one that Tsunade wore. Rika didn't have any makeup on, Naruto doubted she would ever wear any no matter the circumstance and he honestly thought that she didn't need it, her natural beauty being more than enough. Rika's hair had grown longer in the last few months, so much so that even though she still had it in a ponytail it was no longer in the normal spikey style and instead fell down beautifully to her mid-back near her shoulder blades. Rika copied Kushina's hair style at the front using a hair clip with an orange Uzumaki swirl, that Kushina had given her during Christmas, to keep her hair out of her face and instead to frame it perfectly.
"My, Rika sure looks beautiful doesn't she Naruto-kun?" Rumiko asked the speechless blonde, getting an unconscious nod from the male tamer.
"W-what is it?" Rika asks, looking off to the side a blush on her face, uncharacteristically shy and cute at that moment.
"N-nothing." Naruto stuttered, a hint of red on his own cheeks, as he looked away.
"You two are just too cute." Rumiko giggled before leading Rika to stand in front of the camera. "Alright let's get started." She said.
Hours later Rumiko was sitting at the table in the Nonaka home next to Kushina each of them enjoying a cup of tea.
"So how did it go?" Kushina finally asked her longtime friend.
"As well as you'd expect." Rumiko replied cryptically.
"So badly." Kushina stated with a raised eyebrow, Rumiko nodding her head in reply as she pulled out two sets of photos from her purse and handed them to Kushina. The first set consisted of pictures of Rika, but the problem was that in all of them the redheaded tamer had a frown, was completely expressionless, or had a forced smile on her face. She also looked annoyed and irritated in a lot of them.
The next set was of her son, Naruto. In the first picture she saw he was wearing a blue shirt with, which did its job in bringing out the whisker marked boy's eyes, a light white jacket over it, so it wasn't uncomfortable to wear during the spring. On the right sleeve was the silhouette of a Chinese dragon going up the sleeve and on the left sleeve shoulder a red Uzumaki swirl. He had on dark blue jeans and black converse. In his pictures Naruto looked uncomfortable and unsure of himself' something that Kushina thought she would never see expressed in her son.
"I didn't think they would turn out this bad." Kushina said amusedly looking through the pictures.
"Well it was what I expected." Rumiko said, as she pulled out another set of pictures from her purse. "Then again their individual pictures weren't what I was after." She finished handing Kushina the final set of pictures.
In these pictures Naruto and Rika were together close to each other. Kushina noticed that at first the two seemed to as uncomfortable as they were in the other photos, but as they progressed the two tamers seemed to forget about the rest of the world and just focus on each other. There was no doubt about the feelings the two shared for each other as the pose changed slightly with each picture, giving Kushina the impression that the two weren't listening to any sort of direction and were instead doing what felt natural to them. In one picture the young couple looked like they were about to kiss, until Kushina looked at the next picture and saw Rika's fist heading toward the camera lens. Kushina gave her blonde friend a questioning look.
Seeing what picture Kushina stopped at Rumiko knew what her friend's question was. "The cameraman said something that knocked the two out of their own little world and made Rika angry. That is a total of six cameramen who have sworn never to work with my daughter again." Rumiko finished with a sigh though an amused smile was on her face.
Kushina laughed and continued to look through the rest of the pictures noting that not only were there more of them together then there were in the individual photos, but that they were also wearing different outfits in some of them. The expressions on their faces were just as happy as before except that now they seemed to be more aware of the rest of the world then before.
"The theme of the photo shoot was young couples and I couldn't think of anyone better than Naruto-kun and Rika." Rumiko began, "No model no matter how good they were at their job could ever express the same emotion, or nearly as strong, as those two making them perfect for this." Rumiko explained, Kushina agreeing with her.
"Alice-chan would be so upset if she saw these." Kushina commented.
Rumiko nodded her head, "Not to mention the girls at Rika's old school." She added.
"Oh, are you playing a prank on those girls?" The red haired mother asked her.
"After the things they said and did to my daughter, I couldn't very well sit back with my arms crossed now could I?" Rumiko asked rhetorically. "Besides with Kushina Uzumaki as my best friend something was bound to stick." The blonde mother said giggling at the end, Kushina joining her soon after.
AN: That's it, this chapter idea has been in my head for a while now and I finally got down to writing it. I'll probably post other chapters like this here when I get other ideas, though they won't be in any sort of order so one chapter could happen before or after another but I don't think that really matters for these.
Please review and let me know how you think this turned out.
