Hi!

I do not own Naruto. I'm tired of saying that…

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Everyone stayed silent for a while

"Muahaha, nothing to say eh?" the sand taunted.

Silence…

"That is not youthful!!!!" Lee blurted out, shattering the silence.

"L-Lee's right…" Tenten agreed. She latched onto Neji's arm. He turned his attention to her and gave a reassuring smile.

Silence…

"Well, bye! I ain't stayin' here with some creepy, talking sand in a gourd!" Ino claimed standing up and walking outside.

"Right behind ya, Ino-pig!" Sakura added, exiting after her.

"Muahaha, no come back!" Gaara's gourd grew legs, jumped off his back, and ran after Ino and Sakura.

"Eek!!!" The two screeched and ran outside. The gourd followed, but it tripped every two steps…

"Muahaha, you're useless gourd! Let me down!" The sand spilled from the gourd and proceeded to pursue Ino and Sakura… with a GIANT BUTCHER KNIFE!!!!! "Muahaha! Blood, blood! Kill, kill!!"

Sasuke looked alarmed and bolted out of the door to save Sakura. Shikamaru just sat there.

"Shikamaru, aren't you going to save Ino?" Tenten questioned.

"Nope, too troublesome." He replied, leaning back in his chair. "But, I will ask why the sand suddenly came to life. Gaara? Temari? Kankuro?"

"Uh, maybe the sand is cold?" Kankuro suggested, shrugging his shoulders.

"Well, it's possible; Gaara's never gone where it's cold…" Temari agreed. "Did you know about this Gaara?" She continued. He stayed silent. "Erm, I guess not…"

Meanwhile…

"Ino! What should we do?" Sakura asked, running faster.

"Isn't it obvious billboard brow? Hide!!!" An enormous boulder came into view. "There!" The two jumped and ducked behind the boulder.

"Muahaha! The two of you won't get away that easily!" The sand used to butcher knife to slice THROUGH the boulder!!!

"Dammit! My hair!" Ino screeched. Some of the hair on the top of her ponytail danced in the wind.

"No time for that! Let's go, go go!!" Sakura grabbed Ino's hood and ran.

"A tree! Sand can't climb trees!!!" Ino said, grabbing Sakura's hood and running up the tree. They sat on a branch near the top and stuck their tongues out at the approaching sand. The sand stopped at the base of the tree. Then… it started climbing the tree!! "Oh hell no! That's so not fair!! C'mon!" She and Sakura jumped out of the tree and started running again.

"To the hotel!"

"But everyone's there forehead girl!"

"So? We can get backup there!"

"Good idea!" They dashed off towards the hotel

Somewhere in a cave nearby…

"Ok, Gai, you can stop chasing them now…" Kurenai suggested sweatdropping.

"Never! Exercise is good for the soul! Go youth!!!"

Kakashi sighed, "I knew he was going to do this."

"You think you can do better, eh Kakashi?"

"Actually, I never said-"

"Well that's fine because I challenge to paper, scissors, rock right now!!!"

Kakashi sighed again, and they started the game.

"Rock, paper, scissors!" Gai called out. Kakashi chose paper, and Gai chose rock. "Grrr, fine, rival Kakashi! I admit defeat! You used your youth to defeat me…"

"Just go control the sand… jeez…" Kakashi said returning his attention to his precious Make Out Paradise book.

Near the hotel…

"Hi Sasuke! Bye Sasuke!" The girls greeted, passing Sasuke. Sasuke turned and ran after them. He grabbed Sakura and tossed her on his back.

"Hey! What about me?!"

Sakura grabbed Ino's arm and hauled her onto her back. The three spotted the hotel.

"Muahaha, I told you, you can't escape that easily!" Sasuke jumped on the roof and continued to run until Ino started slipping.

"Ino!" Sakura tried to grab Ino again, but, she'd already fallen through the chimney. Sasuke stopped and let Sakura get down. She immediately glomped him.

"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" She squeezed tighter. Then, they fell through the roof "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!" When they landed in the room below, they looked up. "So that was made from straw?!? Who the hell makes a ceiling from starw?! Well, I'm not complaining. I thought I might have to go on a diet again."

Sasuke turned to her with a half smile. "You're pefect just the way you are, "He said, placing his lips on hers (awwwwwwwww , )

In a closet somewhere in the hotel...

"I'm hungry, hungry, hungry, hungry!!!!" Naruto sang.

"Naruto-kun-"

"No! Wait, wait! I've got a song! Sing it with me Hina-chan!!"

"Ok..."

"EVERYWHERE I GO!"

"Everywhere I go."

"PEOPLE WANNA KNOW!!"

"People wanna know."

"WHAT I ATE!"

"What I ate."

"SO I TELL THEM! NOTHING! I'M STARVING!!"

"Nothing. I'm starving."

"I'M FRIGGIN', FRIGGEN HUNGRY!!!"

"I'm friggin' friggin' hungry."

"YEAH!!!! I LOVE THAT SONG- WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?!?!"

"Muahaha, suprised to see me?"

"W-who are y-you?"

"I'm Gaara's sand, muahaha!"

"Who's Gaara again?" Naruto asked.

"The red-headed sand ninja with the kanji for love on his forehead, muahaha."

"Nope, doesn't ring a bell," he replied, scratching his chin.

"Grrr, muahaha." The sand took out its butcher knife.

"Um, Ms. S-sand?"

"Yes child, muahaha?"

"P-please don't kill N-Naruto-kun. H-He's just h-hungry."

"Muahaha, ok." It put its knife away.

"AAAAAHHHHH!!!" Naruto screamed.

"What, muahaha? All I did was put the knife away, muahaha." It said, showing Naruto the knife.

"AAAAAHHHHH!!!" The sand moved the knife to the left. "AAAAAHHHHH!!!" then the right "AAAAAHHHHH!!!" up "AAAAAHHH-" The door opened.

"What's going on?" Neji asked irritably. Naruto ran pass him and flung himself onto the floor, hugging it.

"Oh, how I missed you so!!! I love you glorious light!!! Never leave me again!!!!!" Neji sweatdropped. The sand rushed off, saying something about 'Muahaha'

In the hallway...

C'mon Sasuke! You call yourself a man?! Push!" Lee froze in his tracks at Sakura's voice and put his ear on the door.

"What do you think I'm doing?"

"Well, you're not pushing hard enough!!! Put some back into it!" A few moments later, he heard Sakura scream. "Great. It's everywhere!!!" Lee couldn't take it anymore he kicked the door down only to see Sasuke and Sakura pushing the bed back into place, fully clothed. The sand slithered by him, mumbling something. Lee fainted.
