A/N: Here is my new story :) I know I have to finish 'Mission in Suna' and I will soon :)
Temari entered her room in the embassy where she stayed when she was in Konoha. The three days travel from Suna had left her exhausted so she couldn't wait to sleep. After she took a quick shower and changed clothes she lay down on her bed with the intention to finally fall asleep.
Her attempt failed miserably because something was on her mind or rather someone. Nara Shikamaru. He was her guide in Konoha again, but today when they walked to the Hokage something strange happened.
Shikamaru was leading Temari the way to Tsunade's office when suddenly Ino appeared out of nowhere.
"Hey Shikamaru." She shouted. When she noticed Temari she just greeted her with a nod.
"Troublesome." Shikamaru murmured.
"Don't forget about our dinner tonight." Ino smiled, approaching him and the Suna princess.
"Yeah whatever." Shikamaru shrugged.
Temari on the other hand wasn't so indifferent about the situation. She felt somehow jealous when she heard Shikamaru and Ino were going out. For some unknown reason this knowledge made her angry.
After a few minutes Ino left to work in the flower shop. When she was out of sight Temari couldn't help but ask what was on her mind.
"So you are going to dinner with Ino tonight, lazy ass?"
"It's troublesome, but yeah I do." Shikamaru looked bored.
Now the kunoichi got irritated. "You aren't to lazy to do that?"
"I promised her I would go even if it's a drag."
"How nice. Now come on and bring me to the Hokage." Temari snapped.
The rest of the way was spent in silence.
It was all his fault that she was still awake now and thinking this over.
'So what? Ino and Shikamaru have a date. It has nothing to do with me what that lazy-ass is doing. I am Temari No Sabaku and I don't worry about such matters. As if I care about that bastard.'
This night Temari felt in an uneasy sleep not knowing why she got so worked up about the whole situation.
Meanwhile with Shikamaru and Ino at a restaurant
"So why did I have to make the troublesome way here?" The lazy ninja asked annoyed looking at Ino across the table.
"I have a favor to ask you."
"Stop saying that. This is really important." When Shikamaru didn't show any reaction Ino just continued. "I need your help to make this cute new guy I met yesterday jealous. I have a perfect plan. You just have to pretend to be my boyfriend for a while."
"What a drag."
"Are you helping me or not?" Ino snapped angrily.
Shikamaru analyzed his options. Ino never backed down when she wanted something and she would annoy him until he would agree to her plan. The results would be that she interrupted his cloud watching time which could get really troublesome.
He sighed deeply choosing the least troublesome version for himself. "So what do you want me to do?"
Ino's eyes lighted up and her mood change immediately from anger to happiness.
"I will spread the rumor that we are together and than we have to be seen holding hands or something like that by him so he gets jealous."
'This plan is going to fail badly. What a drag.' The genius thought.
"So everyone is going to think we are together?"
"Yeah pretty much, but maybe we should tell Choji and our parents the truth." Ino explained. "The plan starts tomorrow when you take me shopping where I know for sure he will be too."
"You already saw that Temari arrived today and I am her guide again as troublesome as it is. I have to show her around Konoha tomorrow."
Ino frowned at that. "I know that, but there is a two hour meeting where she has to be, so meanwhile you have enough time to take me shopping."
"What a pain." Shikamaru knew his last attempt to get away from Ino had failed.
"What did you say?"
"Nothing. I am going home."
After Shikamaru had left the restaurant he heard Ino yell from inside, but he ignored her.
"Shikamaru get back here and pay for the dinner."
On the way home the shadow-user thought about Ino's plan.
'This is predicted to get really troublesome. As if someone would get jealous this easily.'
He came home to find his mom already waiting for him.
"I just want remind you to do your household chores tomorrow."
Shikamaru looked annoyed. "Why do I have so troublesome women in my life?"
"You don't deserve it any other way. So how was your dinner with Ino?"
"I am part of her new plan. She wants me to pretend that I am her boyfriend to make some guy jealous."
"Sounds like Ino." Yoshino thought out loud. This girl had new plans to get a guy every week so that seems just like her.
"And on top of that I have to guide Temari around Konoha. What a drag."
"I know she is a 'troublesome woman'." Yoshino frowned while using his favorite name of the Suna kunoichi.
"She is the most troublesome woman I know."
"I see." Shikamaru's mom smirked. In that moment she knew her son had fallen for the Nara-man curse. The exact same thing had Shikaku said about her to one of his friends before he had admitted he loved her.
Shikamaru was creep out when he saw his mother's smirk, so he decide it was better to leave now.
"I am off to bed. Night."
"Don't forget about your chores tomorrow." Yoshino could swear she had heard him mumble a 'troublesome' before he went to his room.
