Chapter 20At long last!

After the team had returned home to Konoha and had reported in to Tsunade, she sent everyone over to the hospital for a checkup. Afterwards, she sent everyone, except for Kakashi, Itachi and Sasuke, home. Those three she asked to come back to her office.

"Kakashi, I would like Itachi to live in the Uchiha residence with Sasuke, but he is still under probation. I want you to take turns with Anbu on watching him. I may still send you on missions, but when you are not on missions, I want you to be watching him."

The silver haired ninja nodded his head.

Tsunade looked at Sasuke. "You also will be responsible for keeping an eye on your brother. If, after six months, he has behaved, then he will no longer be under watch and can resume life as a ninja again."

Sasuke and Itachi were surprised at the light sentence, but neither one questioned it. Sasuke nodded in reply to the Hokage's order.

All three men in the room were tired after their mission and looked forward to getting a good night's sleep. It was only around nine in the evening, but they had all been in a rush to get back to Konoha and hadn't had much rest.

Tsunade could see they were tired and smiled at them. "Okay, well that is all I needed to tell you for now. Go home and get some rest. Kakashi, you will be spending the night at their home tonight. Tomorrow you can set up a schedule with the Anbu captain on when you wish to perform your guard shift duties. You are all dismissed."

All three men stood up and bowed their heads respectfully to the Hokage, then turned around and left the room together.

Tsunade opened her top drawer and pulled out a bottle of sake and opened it. She took a big drink out of the bottle. I'm glad that is over with. Now maybe we can have some peace around here. I will need to start training Naruto even harder now, to take over my job. I really need to retire. She took another long drink, then put the bottle back in the drawer and closed it. It wasn't long before she fell asleep, with her head laying on the mission's report she had yet to fully read.

The following morning, Gaara was standing near the front door of Naruto's home. He had spent the night at the blond's house, since it would be a while before they would get to see each other again. Before they had gone to Naruto's place, Gaara had got his luggage from the hotel and had checked out. He smiled as the blond came up to him and gave him a hug.

"I'm going to miss you, Gaara! I hope you can come back here again, soon." Naruto pulled back from the hug and smiled at his friend.

"I will miss you, too. You will probably be busy training to be the next Hokage and won't have time to come to the Sand village to visit me."

Naruto's smile got bigger as he thought of his dream, to be Hokage, as coming true. "Yes, Tsunade told me last night to come to her office this morning and start training with her again. I can't wait to become the Rokudaime!"

"The Hyuuga clan haven't been bothering you lately, have they?"

Naruto shook his head. "No, Hiashi has left me alone since the last time I refused to marry one of his daughters. Hinata and Kiba have been growing closer, I hope Hiashi will not interfere in their relationship. As for Hanabi, she's just a kid and I'm in love with Sasuke anyway. If Hiashi bugs me again, I'll tell him I'm gay."

Gaara snickered. "Don't know if that will stop him, but it's worth a try."

Naruto laughed, then got a sly look on his face. "You know, Gaara, speaking of the Hyuuga clan, I noticed that you and Neji seemed to be closer now. I saw you two talking together, a few times on our way back." Naruto grinned when he saw the blush spreading on his friend's cheeks. "Something you want to tell me about?"

Gaara glared at the blond. "We were just talking. We are friends."

Naruto smiled sincerely at the red head. "I'm glad you have found a new friend. Neji is a good guy." I bet they become more than friends later though! I'm sure I saw them staring at each other a few times when they thought the other wasn't looking. They are definitely interested in each other.

Gaara smiled back. "Yes, I think he is too. Well, Naruto, I have to go now." Gaara picked up his bag and put it on the shoulder that his gourd was not on. He turned around, then opened the door.

"You sure you don't want me to walk you to the gate?"

Gaara looked back at the blond. "No, you need to finish getting ready for your appointment with the Hokage. I'll see you again, when I can."

"Okay, well have a safe trip home, Gaara!" Naruto watched as the red head walked away. I wonder if Neji will show up at the gate to tell him goodbye? Naruto smirked, then closed his door. He walked upstairs and headed to his bedroom to get his green jounin vest and put it on, then he put on his weapon pouch. He went back downstairs, then to the front door and put on his black sandals. I wonder how Sasuke is doing. I wish I had time to go see him this morning, but I slept in too late. Maybe I'll have time at lunch to check up on him.

Naruto left his house, closing and locking the door behind him.

Tsunade cleared her throat to get the blond boy's attention. He looked up from the paperwork he had been working on, with a questioning look in his eyes. He was currently seated at a table, that had been brought into the Hokage's office for him to use as his own desk. "It's lunch time, Naruto." It was actually only ten-thirty, but she figured Naruto wouldn't notice the time right away and would be in a hurry to get out of work. She went on, before the Hokage-in-training could jump up from his chair. "Don't bother coming back here today. I have an important meeting with my advisors and this is one meeting that you won't be attending. Take the rest of the day off."

Naruto grinned in happiness and leaped up from his chair. He wasn't about to question his good luck. "Great! Well, I guess I'll see you tomorrow then!"

Tsunade smirked at the boy. "No, you won't. You have tomorrow off too. Consider it a reward for the success of your mission." Actually, it was Sasuke that came by here early this morning and asked me to give you this time off. But he told me not to tell you. The blond Hokage laughed inside. Ah, young romance.

Naruto was puzzled about why he had had to come into work at all in the first place, but shrugged it off. "Okay, well, I'll see you the day after then. Bye Tsunade baa-chan and thanks!"

Before he reached the door, he had to dodge a paperweight that had been thrown at his head. He laughed and quickly opened the door and slammed it shut behind him as he left. He walked out of the Hokage tower and turned in the direction of Ichiraku's. I'll get some ramen first, then go see Sasuke!

After Naruto had devoured four bowls of miso ramen, he paid his bill and said goodbye to Ayame. He teleported himself to the Uchiha district, appearing right in front of Sasuke's house. He knocked on the door and waited.

Sasuke answered the door and smiled at his blond. "Hey."

Naruto smiled back. "Hey to you, too! I have the rest of today and all of tomorrow off. Can I come in?"

Sasuke stood back and motioned for Naruto to come in. After the blond had entered and took off his shoes, Sasuke grabbed him by the arms and turned him around. He pulled Naruto up close to him, then lowered his head and kissed him.

Naruto was surprised at first, but then relaxed into the kiss. He opened his mouth when he felt Sasuke's tongue probing between his lips. The blond moaned at the pleasure of feeling his love's tongue exploring all around his mouth. His tongue started playing with Sasuke's. Naruto felt satisfaction and excitement when his actions were able to draw a moan out of the raven haired boy.

Sasuke decided to stop what they were doing, before he lost control of himself. He pulled back from the kiss and pressed his forehead against the blond's, staring into the turquoise eyes he adored. "Let's go into the living room." He stood back and let go of Naruto.

Naruto still hadn't got over the kiss yet, but nodded his head anyway, then followed the other boy into the living room. He let Sasuke pull him down on the couch to sit beside him.

Sasuke raised his hand to the side of Naruto's face and cupped his cheek in his palm. He stared deeply into the blond's eyes. Naruto is so beautiful. I can't believe he's really mine. "It's time now for us to go further in our relationship, Naruto. I'm ready if you are."

Naruto stared back into Sasuke's beautiful dark gray eyes. He nodded his head because he was afraid to speak right now. He wasn't sure if he could get the words to come out at the moment. I love Sasuke so much.

Sasuke smirked at the sudden shyness of his normally fearless blond. "I asked Kakashi if he could stay here tonight to watch over Itachi. I thought I would spend the night at your place, so we can be alone together."

Naruto's eyes widened in surprise. "Really?" The blond wanted to go further in their relationship and he had a pretty good idea what Sasuke wanted to do. He felt nervous though.

Sasuke smiled gently at Naruto, then pulled him into his arms and held him. "Really. But first I have the rest of today planned out for us." He released Naruto and pulled back to look at him again. "You know that lake we like to swim at? Well, I thought we would go there first and swim and just enjoy being outside, since it's going to be a beautiful day today. We can catch some fish for lunch while we are there too. Then we can go to the hot springs to relax. We will have dinner at the new restaurant called Doumono, then head over to your place afterwards. How does that sound to you?"

I never knew Sasuke could plan a day that would be so much fun! Hey, how did he know I would be available today? Naruto shrugged mentally. I'll ask him later. Naruto grinned at the raven haired boy. "It sounds great, Sasuke!"

The young Uchiha leaned down and gave the blond a quick chaste kiss on the lips. "Good. I packed us some swimming trunks and some towels to bring along with us and some other supplies. I'll be right back." Sasuke got up from the couch and headed up to his bedroom to get the bag.

Naruto smiled as he watched the other boy leave. It's so great to see him like this. He looks at peace now. He got his revenge and also has his brother back in his life.

A couple minutes later, Sasuke came back downstairs. "You ready to go?"

"You bet!" Naruto followed Sasuke to the door.

After Sasuke closed and locked the door behind them, he took Naruto's hand and both walked down the road, heading out of the Uchiha district. It took them about fifteen minutes to reach the lake, that was located on the other side of the training grounds. During the walk, neither had said much and instead just enjoyed holding hands, while thinking about the other.

They swam and played together in the water. Naruto started a water fight that ended up in a make-out session, when Sasuke came up on him from behind. The young Uchiha grabbed his shoulders, turned him around, then kissed him senseless. Naruto didn't mind. When Sasuke finally let him go, the blond realized he was hungry.

"Sasuke, can we eat now?" Naruto was panting slightly, because of having to catch his breath.

The raven haired boy grinned down at the blond. Guess I'll have to wait until later to kiss him again. God, he looks so delicious right now. The way his long hair is plastered around his face and body. It makes his eyes stand out even more...and the way the water is dripping all over his tan colored skin. Sasuke had to force himself to turn away and get out of the water. He spoke with his back to the blond. "You catch the fish, I'll get the fire started."

Naruto only half-heard what Sasuke had said. His eyes were glued to the back of Sasuke and then he looked lower, watching how the boy's hips were swaying. I feel so hot right now! Sasuke is so gorgeous, that I could look at him forever. Naruto forced himself to snap out of his trance. Got to catch our food! He created some clones and used them to help him catch a few medium sized fish. He dismissed all, but one clone, and then he and the last clone carried four fish out of the water. They both laid the fish down on a towel. He dismissed the clone, then grabbed a filleting knife that Sasuke had brought with them. He gutted the fish, then cut off their heads, after that he put all the fish on sticks and placed the sticks over the fire.

Sasuke grabbed Naruto and pulled him down onto his lap, facing him. He started giving his blond, small playful kisses, sometimes nipping at Naruto's bottom lip, sometimes the top. He ran his hands through long blond locks of hair, then began to kiss his love more deeply.

Naruto moaned in pleasure, he had his own hands in Sasuke's hair, playing with the raven locks he loved so much. When he felt Sasuke's tongue asking for permission to enter his mouth, he granted it by parting his lips. The sensations he was feeling caused him to squirm a bit in the dark haired boy's lap.

Sasuke knew he had to stop or their fish would get burned. He forced himself to pull away from the blond's lips. "I have to turn the fish, Naruto."

Naruto got out of the other boy's lap and turned around, then sat down. He looked at Sasuke, after he had finished with the fish and sat back down. "I love you, Sasuke."

The youngest Uchiha looked at Naruto and smiled. "I love you too, dobe."

"Sasuke! When are you going to stop calling me that!" Naruto couldn't really be angry though, because a confession of love had been with the insult.

Sasuke smirked. "You will always be my dobe."

Okay, well if he puts it like that, I guess I'll just have to stop getting mad when he calls me a dobe. Naruto leaned over and gave Sasuke a quick kiss on the lips, then pulled back. "I guess I can accept that. But if I call you Sasuke-teme, you have to accept that too." He smirked at the frown that came upon the other boy's face.

Sasuke looked away from his smirking boyfriend and checked the fish. Seeing it was done, he took all the pieces off the fire and placed them on a plate that he had brought with them. They both began to eat.

Naruto was too hungry to do anything but stuff his face, so he didn't speak until he was finished. He sighed in happiness. "That was so good, Sasuke!"

Sasuke had finished his meal too, he hadn't ate as much as the blond. Naruto still ate more than most boys his age. Sasuke always wondered where he put it all, since the blond never gained weight and stayed perfectly fit. He looked over at Naruto. "Let's clean up and then we can take a walk to the hot springs." He picked up the plate, then got up and walked over to the lake to clean it.

Naruto put out the fire and put the towels they had sat on and the one he had used for the fish, into a plastic bag so that it wouldn't get mixed up with the clean towels. Then he put the plastic bag into the bag that held their supplies. He took the plate that Sasuke had cleaned and put it in the bag too.

Both boys left the lake and walked in the direction of the hot springs, this time with Naruto carrying the bag. They ended up holding hands again.

To Naruto's surprise, after their dinner, Sasuke took him to one of the local hotels in the village. It was a five star hotel and Sasuke had booked them a suite. Naruto stared around the room in awe. There was a living room that had a big screen tv and a large comfortable looking couch. There was a bar in the room too, but neither of the boys were old enough to drink and they wouldn't have wanted to anyway. There was a balcony outside the room that also stretched to the bedroom. There was a kitchenette and in the refrigerator were some cans of soda and bottled water. There was popcorn and other snacks on the counter. Inside the bathroom was a large tub that could fit about three people in it and a separate shower. But the bedroom was what really pleased both boys. The walls were painted a cream color, while the carpet and bedspread were a dark sapphire blue. In the center of the room was a king sized bed and when Naruto bounced on it, he found it to be the most comfortable bed he had ever been on. He went out on the balcony and stared out over the village. The suite they had was on the top floor of the hotel and that gave them a view of the entire east side of the village.

Sasuke followed the blond out to the balcony and walked up behind him, wrapping his arms around him. He laid his chin on Naruto's shoulder. "Like your surprise?"

Naruto put his hands on the arms that were wrapped around his waist. "I love it, Sasuke! Thank you."

Sasuke raised his chin off the blond's shoulder, then leaned his head down and started kissing Naruto's neck. His arms tightened around his love when he heard the moan of pleasure coming from him.

Naruto turned his head to the right to give Sasuke better access to his neck. His hands tightened on the raven haired boy's arms as the pleasure started to become more intense. "Sassukee."

The young Uchiha stopped sucking on the blond's neck and pulled away from him. He took Naruto by one arm and lead him back into the room.

Naruto allowed Sasuke to lead him to the bed. He began to feel nervous, but there was no way he was going to let it get in the way of what was happening between them. He wanted Sasuke. He wanted to give himself totally to the one he loved. He wouldn't let anything get in the way of that.

Sasuke reached down and grabbed the hem of Naruto's shirt. He pulled the shirt up and when Naruto lifted his arms, he pulled the shirt completely off the blond. He grabbed his own shirt and took it off, then he pulled Naruto to him and started kissing him on the lips. His hands rubbed soothingly on the blond's back, as he did his best to ease any nervousness his soon-to-be lover was experiencing.

Naruto let his own hands stroke the back of his love. He loved the feel of Sasuke's skin under his fingers. He moaned in pleasure as the dark haired boy's kiss became more passionate. His tongue played with the other's and he began to feel as if his body was on fire. Naruto couldn't keep himself from pushing his hips into Sasuke's.

Sasuke groaned as he felt Naruto's erection push up against his own. So my dobe is ready for more, eh? Sasuke began to rock his hips into the blond's. Both of them moaning aloud at the pleasure of feeling their members brush against each other. Sasuke's hands moved down and gripped Naruto's ass, pushing the blond more deeply into his thrusts.

"God, Sasuke!" Naruto cried out. Right after his cry, Sasuke moved his mouth down to his neck and started licking and nipping at it. "Sasuke, I don't want to wait anymore."

Sasuke pulled back and stopped rocking his hips. He let go of the blond's ass and moved away. He reached down to push Naruto's pants and boxers down his hips. He quickly pushed his own down and then lifted the blond and laid him out on the bed. He climbed up over Naruto and leaned down to kiss him quickly, then he got up from the bed and went over to the bag, that Naruto had dropped near the door to the bedroom.

Naruto was puzzled as to why Sasuke would leave him. "What are you doing?"

Sasuke came back to the bed with a tube in his hand, which he held up to show the blond. "This is what I need to use to make this experience more enjoyable for both of us. Just trust me, I know what to do."

"Hey, have you done this before? I thought this was going to be the first time for both of us!" Naruto was not happy about the idea that Sasuke had done this with somebody else.

Sasuke laughed at his blond dobe. "It is my first time, too. But I had a talk with Kakashi and he gave me a book to read that explained how to do this."

Naruto was shocked. "You talked to Kakashi about us having sex together?"

"Dobe, he knows we are together. Since he reads those perverted books all the time, I figured he would be able to answer my questions. I didn't want our first time together to be bad or painful. I want it to be perfect." Sasuke got on the bed, then leaned over the blond. He needed to get them both back in the mood, so he started kissing Naruto and after he put the tube of lube to the side, he began stroking the blond on the shoulders, then moved his hands down to the boy's chest. He pulled away from Naruto's lips and lowered his head down over one of the blond boy's nipples and started sucking on it.

Naruto moaned loudly and grabbed the back of Sasuke's head to hold it in place. When he felt the raven haired boy's teeth pulling at his nipple, he threw his head back and cried out in pleasure.

Sasuke moved his head over to the other nipple when he felt Naruto's hands had loosened their grip on his hair. He repeated the same actions on it, as he had done on the other. He became even more aroused at hearing the cries of pleasure coming from his blond. He left the nipple and started trailing kisses down Naruto's abdomen. He dipped his tongue inside the boy's navel and smirked when he saw the stomach muscles below him, twitching.

Edited out the lemon, see my profile for the link to the lemon.

Naruto raised a hand to Sasuke's head and caressed the back of his head. "Love you, Sasuke."

Sasuke managed to smile and pulled himself out of the blond.

Sasuke turned himself so he could lay down next to Naruto. "I love you, too." He reached out, with his clean hand, and caressed Naruto's face. "You are going to have to move into my home, you know. I want this every night. Hell, not just at night." He leered at the blond.

Naruto laughed. "You aren't becoming a pervert on me, are you?"

Sasuke smirked. "So what if I am? You're used to perverts anyway."

Naruto mock glared at his love. "There are enough perverts in this village, without you having to join their ranks!"

Sasuke rolled over towards the blond, then leaned his head down and whispered. "You'll just have to get used to it. You are a magnet for perverts. It's your lot in life." He lowered his face and kissed Naruto.

Naruto gave into the kiss and opened his mouth to let Sasuke's tongue in. Their tongues played with each other for a bit.

Sasuke pulled back from the kiss and stared deeply into the eyes of the person he loved more than anyone and anything. "You are going to move in with me, aren't you?" He wasn't planning on taking no for an answer, but he felt it was only fair to make sure Naruto was willing.

"Hmm, I'll have to think about it." Naruto suddenly yelped in surprise when Sasuke started tickling his sides. "Stop that!" He started laughing uncontrollably. In between laughs, he managed to get some more words out. "Please, stop. Sasuke!"

Sasuke took pity on his blond and stopped tickling him. "Okay, you had enough time to think. Yes or no, Naruto."

Naruto grinned. "Yes."

Sasuke grinned back, then attacked the blond's lips.

For the rest of the night, neither boy got any sleep.

The End
