"…he said no."
"Again? Shikamaru, this is crucial!"
"This is too troublesome…"
"You understand that we will have to file for bankruptcy if this doesn't work out?"
"I understand, Haruno-sama. Send Hinata. She can freak him out with her eyes."
"Do you think that hasn't crossed my mind?"
"What's the problem then?"
"Neji-san works there, and frankly, he's the scariest person I have ever had the misfortune of meeting."
"E-excuse m-me, Haruno-sama?" a shy, violet-haired woman stuttered nervously. Shikamaru turned around to face the door.
"Ah, Hinata-san, what do you need?" the CEO of Haruno and Co. questioned, redirecting his attention to her.
"Umm, Ino-san w-would like a word with you, if t-that's alright?"
"Yes, yes, of course," he waved his hand impatiently, "send her in."
Before Hinata could make a move to open the door, Ino barged into the office.
"I've got it!" she cried enthusiastically, pushing Shikamaru out of her way.
"We send forehead over there to work undercover!"
"Uhh…and?" Shikamaru questioned with annoyance.
"Well…I haven't thought that far ahead yet…"
"An interesting proposal, but that's what I pay Hinata-san and Shikamaru-san to do. Corporate spies. You are familiar with the term, correct?"
"Yes, I know Haruno-sama, but Sakura can seduce his gorgeous ass! You should see her at the clubs we go to, really it's quite-"
"Umm…I t-think it's in y-your best interest to s-stop, Ino-san," Hinata interrupted, noticing the CEO's reddening face.
"Oh, right, gotta stay focused. So what do you think, Haruno-sama?"
"I think that just might work. He probably is a hormone-crazed teenager," the CEO replied, shaking the thoughts of his daughter clubbing like a dirty prostitute out of his mind.
"He's 24, Haruno-sama."
"Well, they have those hormonal issues too, right Shikamaru-san?" Shikamaru flushed and turned his attention to a cloud outside of the window.
"Great, I'll go let her know!" Ino hurried out of the room grinning, Hinata scurrying behind her.
"Do you really think this is going to work, Haruno-sama?" Shikamaru asked him, doubt written all over his face.
"No. But we're desperate."
"Are you kidding me, Ino?" the pink-haired co-CEO asked her secretary incredulously.
"Come on, forehead, you know how much this will benefit Haruno and Co. My salary is at stake! And think about how proud your dad will be once you save the company!"
Sakura was silent for a moment, pondering the possibilities.
"So basically you want me to go whoring around with the higher-ups over at Uchiha Inc.?"
"No, I want you to go whoring around with THE higher-up."
"…the CEO? Have you lost it? I'd have better luck seducing a block of ice."
"Perfect, because that's essentially what you will be doing."
"…what do you mean exactly?"
"You'll find out as soon as you apply for a job there!"
"They only hire male models, you know. What use would I be there?"
"I'm sure they could think of something to do with you, don't worry."
"But I'm from Haruno and Co. Hell, I AM Haruno and Co. Do you seriously think they'd want the future CEO of a weapons company to work at a modeling agency?"
"That's why you will be known as 'Sakura Uzumaki,' the cousin of Naruto Uzumaki."
"Who on earth is Naruto Uzumaki?"
"The CEO's secretary," Ino sighed in annoyance, "anyway, Hinata will drive you there tomorrow morning for your job application. Don't worry, you'll do fine! I'll see you tomorrow after your interview!" Ino rushed out of Sakura's office, hearing the phone on her desk ringing frantically.
Great. Now I have to pretend to be interested in some egotistical jerk. Ino, you will pay for this, I promise you.
"Thanks so much, Hinata, I'll call you after I'm done," Sakura said, stepping out of the luxurious BMW.
"O-okay, Sakura-san. Good luck!"
Good luck? I don't need luck. I'll have that jackass on a leash by the time I get out of here. CHYEAH!
Sakura briskly walked up the stone steps leading up to a large revolving glass door. She stood confidently in front of the building, before finally walking in. She was greeted by an elegant lobby, and strode over to the reception desk on the opposite end.
"Er, excuse me?" she questioned a receptionist who was busying herself reading the latest issue of Vogue. The woman looked up, raising an eyebrow.
"What do you want?"
"I'm here for an interview."
"So? What do you want me to do about it?"
"I'd like to know where to go, so I won't be late."
"Hey, is the job applicant here yet?" a tall, handsome blonde-haired man with alluring azure eyes questioned the receptionist as he strode into the lobby, completely ignoring a gaping Sakura.
"I think it's that…girl with the huge forehead and atrocious pink hair," the receptionist replied, scrunching her nose in disgust.
Why that little bitch. She better watch herself! SHANNARO!
The blonde turned to face her. Up close, Sakura noticed he had three scars on each side of his face, making him seem younger and more childish than he really was.
"Oh! Hey there," he grinned, holding out a hand for her to shake. She shook it, relieved that there were at least a few decent people working there. "What's your name?"
"Oh, how rude of me. My name is Sakura H-…Uzumaki. Yeah, Uzumaki." The blonde stared at her in disbelief for a moment, screwing up his face in thought.
"Hold on. We're not married or anything, right? I mean, I know I had a bit too much sake that night at the Club Konoha, but-"
"Wait, what are you talking about?" Sakura asked in confusion, "who are you?"
"Naruto. Naruto Uzumaki."
"Ohh, so you're supposed to be my cousin!" she exclaimed, rethinking what Ino had told her, "er, I mean, you are my cousin!"
"…I didn't know I had a cousin…awesome!" the grin reappeared on his face as he lead her down the hall into a glass elevator. He pressed a button and Sakura peered over his shoulder, noticing it was the number 50.
"Wow…that's a long way up…" she couldn't help but comment.
"Well, who else would be on the top floor besides the top dog?"
"What? We're going to see the CEO? Now?"
"Family benefits," he winked at her as the elevator climbed past the 27th floor.
"Oh, of course," Sakura blushed slightly. Don't blush you idiot, he's your cousin! Remember? She unwillingly shook any naughty thoughts out of her head and looked out of the elevator. Down below she saw many extremely handsome, well-built men roaming around, conversing with each other. I could get used to this place…
"Okay, here we are," Naruto interrupted her thoughts as the elevator stopped abruptly. She followed him out into a large waiting area, an enormous door centering the opposing wall. The blonde opened the door, gesturing for her to go in. She hesitantly stepped inside, entering an expansive office. Naruto shut the door behind him as he walked past her and threw open another door at the far end.
"Hey teme, I have our new employee!"
"Dobe, don't you ever knock?" a suave voice remarked coolly.
"No. Should I bring her in?" Without waiting for an answer, he pulled Sakura by the arm into the office. "Meet my cousin, Sakura!"
"Your…cousin? Since when do you have a cousin?" an extremely gorgeous man with sleek midnight-blue hair and obsidian eyes to match retorted.
"Oh, I just met her today!" The CEO raised an eyebrow suspiciously as he glanced in a flushed Sakura's direction.
"What makes you think I should hire her?"
What an ass! Why wouldn't he hire me?
"Dude, she's family. You have to hire her!"
"I don't 'have' to do anything, dobe."
"If I may interrupt, I have experience with secretarial work, and I'm excellent at following orders," Sakura defended herself through gritted teeth.
"You're willing to do…anything?" Sasuke asked, a smirk playing on his lips.
"Of course," she stated immediately, remembering why she was standing here in the first place.
"Hn. I can see that you're somewhat capable." Naruto grinned at Sakura after hearing Sasuke's semi-compliment. A wave of relief washed over Sakura as she relaxed a bit.
"I take my coffee with cream, no sugar." He spun his chair around, turning his attention to the city below.
WHAT A BASTARD! I CAN'T STAND HIM!

"Hey, let's get some people up here!"
"To play some poker of course!" Naruto pulled out a brand-new pack of cards and started shuffling them with a grin on his face.
After a few minutes of game play...
"Royal flush, bitches. Off with the pants!"
Amidst their undressing, none of the men noticed Sakura walk in.
