Author Notes: Hello everyone! Welcome to my first attempt at writing drabbles. It's a collaboration with my daughter who is responsible for getting me interested in Naruto in the first place. As Naruto is an established fandom with a huge number of fanfiction, I apologise in advance if our ideas have already been written to the death. Hope you enjoy them anyway :)

General Warnings: Parody, tongue in cheek humour and OOCness.

Chapter Warnings: This chapter will make more sense if you're familiar with Naruto Episodes 6 - 19 (the Land of the Waves arc).

Rating: 'T'

Characters: Zabuza Momochi & Haku

Disclaimer: Naruto belongs to Masashi Kishimoto.

"Haku! Where are you?"

"In the bedroom, where else?"

"Aren't you ready yet?"

"Just a few minutes more."

"We're going to be late for the Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist party!" Zabuza groused.

No reply.

With an impatient grunt, Zabuza stomped towards the bedroom. He disliked being late. Not because he was a stickler for punctuality or anything, but he wanted to see the others' entrances. Kami knew some of them bordered on the ridiculous... like Kisame who would inevitably decorate Sharkskin with the gaudiest of flowers, ribbons and vines.

Throwing open the bedroom door, Zabuza froze. Haku was seated at the vanity, attending to his fingernails.

Zabuza let his eyes trail over the loveliness before him - long dark hair spilling down a slender back, a perfectly shaped head bent in concentration, an elegant pale arm and that pink kimono patterned with tiny golden flowers.


There was no other word that fitted so well.

Haku was gorgeous and Haku was all his.

"Do you always have to paint your nails at the last minute?" Zabuza grumbled, grasping at the first thing he could think of so he wouldn't melt into a puddle on the floor.

Haku looked up and smiled at him, making Zabuza tighten his grip on the door handle lest he melt in any case.

"You know this pink kimono doesn't match the gray colour on my nails," Haku said mildly.

"Whatever, just hurry up," Zabuza growled.

It looked like he and Haku would be the last ones to arrive at the party.

Oh well, it would be just as fun seeing all their jaws drop when he walked in with this vision of heaven on his arm.
