Chapter 1: Their Troubles
17-year-old Sasuke tossed and turned in bed, his father's words echoed in his head over and over again like a never ending tunnel. You have 'til next month to find a fiancée. If you don't, your mother and I will, his mind played Fugaku's, his father's, announcement. Why won't anyone understand him? He just doesn't want to be ordered around to do everything that everyone says; like finding a fiancée. He wants to be single. He doesn't want a girl clinging onto his arm. He hates girls.
"Argh," he inwardly groaned. How the hell am I going to find a freakin' fiancée in one month! Sasuke's mind screamed. Why didn't they tell me this earlier! This is bullshit!
Oh my god! I'll ask the guys for help tomorrow, with that, he closed his eyes and drifted off to a sleep.
NEXT MORNING; OTHER SIDE OF TOWN:
"Good morning, Yoko," a pastel pink-haired teenager said while entering the small kitchen of her family's apartment. Her short hair was messy from her beauty sleep and she was still in her pajamas.
"'Morning, Sakura," Yoko greeted over her shoulder. Her chocolate brown hair that reached her shoulders had already been put up into a high pony tail as usual. Being the eldest sister that she is, she was already preparing breakfast. "You should hurry up and head down to your job," Yoko ordered.
"Who are you to boss?" Sakura demanded. "You're not even at dad's bakery shop."
"Yeah, yeah," she replied in a bored tone. "Seriously, you have to go work."
"Can't, got fired," Sakura said calmly.
"What?" Yoko hissed.
"I got fired," she replied.
"Gosh, Sakura, what did you do now?" Yoko groaned.
"I didn't do anything; I was carrying out the costumers' orders and this one man groped me," Sakura explained, getting out 2 plates for their breakfast.
"And?" Yoko demanded for more.
"And I kicked him and he went flying off his chair," she quickly finished.
"Gosh, Sakura, control your temper, please?" Yoko once again groaned. "Think about our situation here; dad ditched us for some whore, mom's sick at the hospital, and how are we going to pay all of the medical bills?"
"Oh, yeah, hehe, I kind of forgot about that," Sakura responded nervously while Yoko gave her a dangerous glare. "I'll make flyers."
"You better," Yoko warned. "If you do, what are you going to say to persuade people to hire you?"
"Um . . ." Sakura cupped her chin and looked up at the ceiling, "Haruno Sakura. Will do anything."
"Okay?" her older sister said unsurely. "I'll help you." Yoko brought the two plates over to the kitchen table; each half of the plates was occupied by scrambled eggs and the other half with snow white rice.
As his pitch black eyes slowly opened to greet the morning sun's sharp, bright rays; he inhaled in as much air as his lungs could hold and then exhaled. Sasuke lazily crept out of his large bed and walked towards his sapphire blue cell phone and dialed Naruto's number.
Naruto was sitting on grazing land. The sun had settled in mid sky. The sky was as light blue as ever and a few thin cotton clouds decorated the sky's exterior.
The blonde turned to Hinata. "Beautiful day today, isn't it Hinata?"
"Y-yes it is," she answered, slightly blushing. Naruto let out a short sigh and inched a little closer towards her direction. As Naruto slowly leaned towards her for a kiss on the lips, she seemed immobilized and didn't move a muscle as her cheeks turned into a shade of crimson red.
Yes! Yes! Just a little closer and I'll reach my goal. I'm so smooth, he thought. Naruto had been waiting forever for this moment to happen. And he thought that it would never come. Now his wish is coming true. But heck, Naruto was as nervous as ever.
As his lips were just centimeters away from her light pink ones; he could hear his heart thumping in his ears, his body warming up, his sweat trickling down his sideburns. He's going to go for it; he's going to go for it! Oh, this is the most romantic scene! This is the most ro-
"Bring . . . bring . . . bring!"
Aw, man, I was just having the perfect dream! Naruto squinted his eyes as he flipped his orange covers aside his bed and carelessly reached for his phone by his lamp.
"What the hell do you want!" he yelled.
"I need you to come over to my house today at 1 o'clock," said Sasuke.
"That's it? You woke me up for that!" Naruto raised his voice.
"Whatever, just remember to come," he reminded.
"Hmm-mmagh-hn," Naruto groaned scratching the back of his messy blonde head.
"1 o' clock got that?"
"Hmm-mmagh-hn," Naruto repeated hung up the phone with his eyes half open. Naruto plopped down on his bed. He let out a deep sigh followed by a loud snore.
"I think that should do," Sakura said, resting her hands on her hips.
"Yeah, we practically covered the entire town with your flyers," Yoko stated.
"It's worth it; the faster I get a job the faster we can pay for mom's medical bills," she continued, "Now all I have to do is wait for someone to call and hire me."
"Wow, I feel bad for you," said Neji.
"Yeah, I mean; a fiancée at age 17. That's just bad luck," Naruto confessed, shuffling through the pile of newspaper that he brought with him.
Shikamaru rested his back against Sasuke's blue bedroom wall. "What a drag." Neji, Naruto, Sasuke, and Shikamaru were in Sasuke's room, obviously talking about Sasuke's trouble that he couldn't get over with. Sasuke shook his head in frustration. What was he do; he could just pick a girl off the streets and make her his fiancée. But then again, he wants someone that he could enjoy his life with.
"You could just pick a girl from school," Neji suggested.
Sasuke shook his head. "I don't want to be stuck with a fan girl for the rest of my life."
"Marry her for one day in the future and then divorce her," Naruto said, still look though the newspaper.
"Dope, my life isn't a game," Sasuke snapped.
"Don't worry. We'll help you find the girl of your dreams," Naruto patted him on the back.
Sasuke narrowed his eyebrows in confusion. "What are you talking about?" he questioned. "The point is, is that I don't want a fiancée." He glanced at the gray pile of newspaper and flipped through it, trying to get his mind off the situation.
He turned over gray paper after gray paper until a pink sheet of paper caught is attention. Sasuke pulled it out and it read:
Looking for some one to hire?
Hire Haruno Sakura
Any job will do for me
Call me at: 856-212-6497
As a thought ran through his head, a smirk crept on his face.
"What's up with you?" Shikamaru asked.
"I have an idea," Sasuke looked up at his friends, "A very good idea."
