A/N: Thank you for everyone who reviewed and I'm sorry if I'm not uploading the chapters consistently. It is quite troublesome to upload when I have to do, like, 7291 assignments.

Naruto's POV:

When I finally got to my house, I was relieved. It felt so tense in the car that even when I rolled the window down to let in fresh air, I still felt very suffocated.

"Okay, Sasuke. Since your parents won't be back for another month, you can stay over at my place. Mom and dad are still vacationing in Greece but they'll be back next week. And even if you're my guest, I'm not carrying your crap so have fun doing that. Come on Gaara!" I then jog over to my front door and unlock it, out of sight of that Uchiha glare I felt on my back. As soon as reach the bottom of the stairs. I feel arms wrap around my torso. I look down and see pale arms.

"Gaara?" Gaara has only ever hugged me once, it's often times me doing the physical interaction and he'll just stand there.

"I don't like him Naru. I don't like him at all," he murmurs into my back, still holding me. I dare not move because I honestly don't want him to let go. "He looks so mean and he looks like he will hurt you or something."

"Don't worry, teme just looks like he has a stick up his ass most times. Even when we were small, he was always like this. A bit reserved. But I promise that once you get to know him, you'll appreciate him and his companionship." I move as to turn and I regret I moved because those pale arms soon release. Though when I had turned, he wrapped his arms around me again and stares into my eyes. Boy, this is awfully strange.

"Please don't leave me, Naru. You're the only person I trust and I would go crazy without you. Please." He whispers into my mouth. At this point, I realize that Gaara's face is a few inches away from mine. He closes his eyes and moves into kiss me. And for some reason, I don't move away, in fact maybe I want to kiss him...

"AHEM," says a loud voice from the doorway and I completely froze.
