AN: Sadly, my first Naruto is only a drabble (100 words) but I got it out in time for my birthday on the 18th! BANZAI! Could be romance...could be angst...I didn't name a specific character, but I teetered between both Naruto and Sasuke (as much as I love Gaara)...and since I'm a yaoi fan...they're gonna be thinking about the other. Anyways, hope it's worth it. Read on lovelies!

He lay on his back in the grass turning the weapon in his hand. Fascinating, really. So beautiful, sharp edge shining in the sun, so deadly, he had honed it's blade until it sunk through flesh like butter. Virtually painless upon entry, but vicious in amplifying pain and blood when it was torn out.

It spun in sharp circles blade over hilt as he lazily tossed it up into the air above him again and again as he caught it only inches from his face. It was a balancing act, one slip and...

He laughed only slightly, "...sounds like love..."

FINI

AN: Well! Hope that was up to par! Keeping it to only 100 words is tough. When I have more time from school I'll get working on a longer fic to all you yaoi-lovers out there! And remember....reviewers get chocolate bunnies! Huggles!
