"Make me!" Gaara roared back, and gleefully—sandily—launched himself back into the fray.
Yep, best scene in this chapter...
Don't mind me just raiding all of your stories and reading them.

You got married? Really? Wow. Congratulations! I hope you have a long, happy, fun-filled, peaceful, and smexy days - years - with your beloved. Congrats again.
- Even though this was posted like how many years back and I only read it now. Hope the two of you are still together and are growing more fond of each other. Have lots of love.

This is amusing! I wonder if Ino finds out about this? I can't believe Lee, Naruto and Gaara used a perverted book as a guide for romancing a girl. I can't stop laughing as I read this piece!

This is hilarious! I hope there's a sequel somewhere, because this was fricking adorable, too! I've always enjoyed a "boy likes angry!Sakura" story, and this was beautiful. Thanks! Favorite quotes:
It didn't look like he'd leave without an answer. And when she didn't budge, he played his trump card. His shoulders slumped a little, the corners of his mouth turning down in a dejected frown and his expression eloquently telling her that she'd just trampled his last hope. Sakura sighed, her own shoulders slumping with defeat. She definitely wanted to know when he'd realized the vulnerable act made her melt.
She flipped a few more pages, her brow knitting with a mix of horror and confusion. "This is supposed to be sexy?"
He frowned. "That's what we were afraid of." At her questioning look, he elaborated: "Naruto said it'd be like getting the wrong manual for a power plant mainframe if it wasn't right."
Oh no. So he wanted a how-to manual.
And… Oh no. He'd come to her.
Naruto had a mute button, she'd discovered. It just took her entire hand and a whole lot of force to activate. As the blond bounced off the nearest wall, she turned to Lee, who at least had the decency to look appropriately terrified. That left one other target for her rage.
Gaara, of course, looked completely unperturbed.
"This does not mean I like you."
"I don't remember asking you to like me."
She sputtered, her fists clenching. "Yeah, you practically asked me to let you cop a feel. Like that'd just happen! You'd have to do a hell of a lot of convincing—"
By the time she realized what she'd said, both conscious guys were staring at her and it was far too late to take the words back.
Gaara finally broke the silence. "I can be convincing."
"But… I…" She stuttered to a halt.
In the meantime, Gaara scooped Naruto up, checked his breathing, and handed him off to Lee. "I need some more time," he said. "For field research."
She put her back to the wall and tried to up her glare a notch. "I don't trust you."
"You people always tell me that when I'm trying to be polite."
"You can be as damned polite as you want; it still doesn't mean I'm gonna trust you."
The attentiveness leached away, leaving something colder, silkier. "I don't have to be polite."
"I don't have to put you through the wall," she returned. "But I might."
Well, here went her security deposit.
Lee jerked to attention at the first crash, then darted forward to try to catch the Fifth Kazekage when he came sailing out of Sakura's second-story window. His best efforts met Gaara's sand, and all of the boys ended up half-buried.
"And stay out!" Sakura shouted.
"Make me!" Gaara roared back, and gleefully—sandily—launched himself back into the fray.
"Hey—" Lee pointed. "Is that a mating mark?"
She dove at them, they dove backwards in terror, and Gaara crashed into her, truncating her brief flight at their throats and pinning her face-down onto the floor. Undaunted, she snarled wordlessly, splintering floorboards and sending little clouds of sand into the air as she used chakra bursts to claw her way along, inch by bloodthirsty inch.
"Save yourselves," Gaara said mildly. The two immediately turned tail and bolted, slamming the door behind them.
"You," she growled; and the sand wrapped around her loosened enough that she could roll over. She'd knock some sense into him next—if he wasn't that close, maybe. And if he wasn't smiling like that, and if he stopped touching her cheek, and…
"I've never scared them that badly," he said in awe.
After only a few moments of retrospect, Sakura decided this entire adventure had been a terrible idea. She couldn't fix the window with what she had in the house. She couldn't go out with Gaara to pick up the things she needed for the repair without leaving a big wide hole for anyone to clamber through—and she'd be damned if she left Gaara to his own devices there while she was gone.
But if she sent him out alone, she'd have to deal with the little matter of the giant hickey he didn't know he had.
"I only have a short meeting this afternoon," he said, as she glared at the window opening. "I'll get the supplies on my way back."
She could see him leaving the meeting now: Yes, Hokage, I'm helping Sakura with some repairs. What do you mean, you can tell how she's paying me?
Next time, she told herself, she'd think before she chomped.
It took monumental mental effort to force the words out. "Before you go… You might want… to put a genjutsu on your neck."
He blinked at her, his forehead wrinkling—then turned on his heel and marched towards her bathroom. She followed to find him at the mirror, his eyes gone wide with astonishment and… glee? "You did that."
"Yeah," she muttered.
He touched the blotch on his throat; then, when it didn't disappear, he poked it. "I didn't know I could get them." And with that he turned and stepped past her. "Kankurou'll be proud of me."
"Kankurou," she repeated blankly.
"Yeah. I think he thought I was holding out for Naruto."
"Na—" Sakura stopped and shook her head—there were some things she really didn't need to consider. Far better to herd him out the door, turn her face up for a goodbye kiss as dutifully as if she'd done it for years—and hope he didn't get into too much trouble on his own.
Him being around and helping clean was okay. Him liking kisses and hickeys and her threatening her fellow Leaf-nin—well, if she thought about it for long enough, that was okay too. Sort of. And if he tried anything stupid she'd boot him into next week.
Which he'd probably enjoy. Either way, it looked like he had a win-win situation. Sakura, though… just had a headache.
Whose brilliant idea was it to make out with the full-fledged crazy person, again? Really now.
She sighed and looked at the wreckage still scattered across the floor. After the initial clean-up would come the fun part—the wait.
Hold on—had he gone out with the genjutsu, or not?
"He is the one with the mating mark," Lee reminded him, which just made the blond scowl harder.
"I wonder if it's something wrong with her."
Gaara thought about that for a second, then shook his head. "No. I don't think so."
"What? Don't you remember a few minutes ago, when she went after us like she wanted to kill—"
Naruto cut off mid-diatribe. Lee's mouth dropped open into a silent o. "So that's it."
Gaara examined his nails—while nonchalantly cocking his head in order to draw attention to his neck.
Naruto was the first to say it. "You're insane. Still."
"Maybe," Gaara replied gloatingly. "But she wants me to come back."
As he walked out the door he heard Naruto whispering, "Man. This isn't good. Both of them… Imagine what'd happen if they had kids!"
"I know what'd happen," Lee said solemnly. "They'd destroy the world."
"Temari even said she figured if I finally did pick a girl, it would be you." His forehead wrinkled as he frowned. "Apparently I've been inordinately attentive."
And now her curiosity was piqued. "Why did you pick me?"
"Because you're smart, and fun when you're angry. Because if I did something wrong, you wouldn't be afraid to let me know," he said. "And because you're interesting. And not crazy."
"Tired of dealing with crazy kunoichi who like you?"
"Yikes," she breathed.
"Well, at least now you can go back and tell them you've got a girl in Leaf, right?"
"A mean one. One who put me through a wall and lived to tell the tale." He brightened, his spine straightening as he thought her words through, and she squeezed his arm happily.
Wait—this meant the next time she went to Sand, she'd find parents telling stories of her to their kids at night to scare them. "If you're bad, the Sakura'll get you—and bite off your head!"
"Lee," Sakura finally said. "Why are you doing this?"
He blinked at her, confused. "Because it's romantic."
"Go on," Gaara said, and gave her a nudge towards the door. "I'll deal with him."
"I can deal with him." Oh, she'd deal with him all right.
"But if you're out here, you'll just be encouraging him."
That sounded reasonable. But… "Don't kill him," she warned.
"I mean it."
Gaara looked back over his shoulder exasperatedly. "I like Lee."
"Okay," she sighed, and closed the door behind her. Outside, she heard a thump, a yelp, and then, quietly, something like conversation.
It was a very, very strange day when she relied on Gaara to talk sense into anyone. She got the feeling Ino wouldn't believe a single word of this story.
She took one more breath, held it for a second—and then screamed at the top of her lungs.
Gaara caught her as she turned to run, sand spreading defensively behind him. "What's…" Then he took a look past her and into her room. "What?"
"I'm gonna kill him and if I kill him I'll have to look at him and I don't want to look at him so I need you to kill him for me."
"I really like her," Gaara said, and cuddled her face against his shoulder.
"Calm down, Sakura-chan," Naruto said from somewhere behind her. "It's not like he's gonna—Hey!"
"Move faster," Gaara told him.
"I can't find my pants—Ack! Get that away from me!"
Certain that anything she would see would just scar her further, Sakura closed her eyes tighter.
"It was supposed to be romantic!"
"I think you need to be on slightly different terms to pull that technique off," Gaara replied dryly.
"Damn it," she wailed. "I need to burn my blankets. And my sheets. And my bed. And definitely my pillow."
"That's a little much," he told her.
"I still can't find my pants…" came Naruto's voice.
"I'll bring them to you later," Gaara told him. Sakura gritted her teeth and refused to look up.
Her door closed with a light thud and a click, and Gaara squeezed her. "I
