Title: SasuIno's Love Series
Genre: Romance – General
A/N's: This was originally planned to be a SasuIno Doujinshi, but since I suck at drawing I decided to turn it into a fic instead.
Anyway, the fic itself it's divided in four arcs. Each of them has a series of 5 independent drabbles that may or may not be connected, depending on how you see it. So, please remember that the drabbles can stand well on their own, and that some are more pointless than others.
For now, we start with the first arc: when they were children, which is about their relationship when they were genin. In other words, drabbles about SasuIno moments at the start of the series.
Disclaimer: I can't draw, so I'm obviously not Kishimoto.
Summary: A series of drabbles focusing on how Sasuke and Ino's relationship came to be. Divided in four different parts: when they were children, while he was gone, when he came back, and when they got together.
SasuIno's Love Series
When They Were Children.
First Drabble: Knight in Shining Armor.
A confident voice resounded throughout the whole local.
"Heh, guess I'm always saving your ass, huh?" Ino taunted while tossing Shikamaru's wallet over her shoulder.
The boy just sighed with annoyance as he caught it, pocketing it again. "Tch, and I'm always saving yours."
"Nope, you have to save Chouji's."
"…And he has to save his chips."
Shikamaru blinks at the grinning girl for a moment before a frown draws his eyebrows together. "Then who saves yours?"
The blonde giggles and turns around, probably more than ready to offer Shikamaru some kind of bizarre solution. Alas, the lazy bum never got to hear it.
Somewhere on the middle of her overdramatic twist Ino lost her balance—but before anything preposterous could happen, a hand shot out of nowhere and caught her forearm, steadying her.
"Hn. Be more careful, Yamanaka."
And with those eloquent Uchiha Sasuke's hand was gone, and so was he.
Perplexed, Ino could not nothing but gape at his departing form.
"Oi, Ino-pig! What were you doing with my Sasuke-kun?!" Abruptly demanded a voice, and alongside it was Sakura angrily glaring at Ino.
Before Ino could even muster a word however, Sakura's eyes had taken notice of Sasuke's back.
And just like that, Sakura takes off after the guy, leaving a puzzled Shikamaru and Ino behind.
Not even a second has passed when another voice comes.
"Sak-! Ah! Shikamaru, Ino! Have you—?"
"Ah! Sakura-chan, wait!" And in the blink of an eye, Naruto was after the two shinobi.
A moment of silence passed between the two teammates. And then a thrilled grin draws itself across Ino's lips.
"Heh, guess I can always count on my Knight-in-Shining-Armor to save my ass, after all!"
Shikamaru could only roll his eyes with annoyance.
Second drabble: Tardiness
If you had passed by Yakiniku Q that day, you would have seen a blonde girl waiting outside with her arms folded over her chest, obviously fuming. "Geez... they're always late, damn it!"
Suddenly, the girl's eyes open and close with disbelief, having just taken notice of the lonely figure of a very handsome boy who was currently walking past her.
Instantly, the girl's previously pursed lips curve into a wide grin.
Now, if for some reason or another you had walked by the barbeque again, you would have seen three males waiting outside.
"Oi... Where's Ino?" asked the one who had a bag of chips in his hands.
"I thought we were supposed to meet here…" thoughtfully commented the elder of the three, taking a drag from his cigarette.
The only boy left just sighed with irritation. "Mendokuse… she's always late."
Meanwhile, not so far away from there, two teenagers sat at Ichiraku's Ramen Bar.
The girl happily sitting beside the boy who had just talked lets out a giggle. "Make that two, Sasuke-kun."
The Uchiha just rolled his eyes, speaking again in his usual monotone. "Two."
The man who was taking the order smiled gently. "Alright, two bowls of ramen coming right away!"
Ino simply grinned while Sasuke rolled his eyes again. But suddenly, a thought appeared in Ino's mind.
'…Didn't I have something to do?'
A simple look at the aloof boy sitting beside her answered her question.
And once again, her lips curved into a grin.
Third Drabble: Owner
The sun was bright above the clouds and the sky was bluer than ever; all the people on Konoha were happily resting at their homes or walking through the city and enjoying the nice day.
All but two girls.
"He's mine, forehead!"
"No! He's mine, Ino-pig!"
Both girls were screaming openly at each other, glaring one another to death and beyond.
The blonde abruptly stops, her blue eyes going wide with surprise before narrowing and landing again upon the girl in front of her.
"You know what, forehead? There he is, why don't we go ask him ourselves and let him decide?"
The pink-haired girl crossed her arms above her chest and turned her head away from the blonde.
Ino mimicked the girl. "Fine!"
The brooding boy didn't know what was coming until it hit him.
The dark-haired Uchiha prodigy turned just in time to see two girls running towards him at full speed; instantly, his eyebrow started twitching.
"What?" He called out, annoyed.
The blonde who had called him places both hands in her hips in an irritated fashion.
"Whose are you?!"
Sasuke just blinked with mild surprise and bewilderment.
"You're mine, right Sasuke-kun?! Not this Pig's!" exploded his teammate, hovering over him.
"No! You're mine!"
The boy whose ownership was being so fiercely fought over, just closed his eyes and went on with his walk, not even glancing back at the screaming girls.
"I'm neither of yours. You're both annoying."
And with that, he was gone.
The two girls just stood there; staring at his retreating form in dejected silence for a long moment. Until the blue-eyed one recovered and turned towards her rival with a smug smirk on her face.
"See? I told you forehead-girl, he's mine."
Fourth Drabble: Watching
"Mou, Shikamaru, this is sooo boring..."
Said boy just sighed.
"Tch, I told you not to come."
"But I was even more bored all by myself!" exclaimed Ino, raising her hands in exasperation.
"Then stop complaining. Hn, this is not so bad, Ino."
Both teenagers were currently lying on the grass of a quiet hilltop, under the gentle shadow of a very large tree.
And Ino was just about to open her mouth to complain again, when her eyes landed on the form of a certain dark-haired Uchiha leaning against a nearby tree.
The blonde's thin lips curved up into a soft smile.
"You know what? You were right, Shikamaru... this is not so bad."
A pleased smile drew itself across the oblivious Nara's face.
"Heh, see? I told you."
Fifth Drabble: Glomp
"Sasuke-kun! How 'bout a date with me today?"
"Let go, Sakura." Said boy demanded, not even bothering to glare at the girl who had just attached herself to his left arm.
"Oh, come on, Sasuke-kun! We're teammates! It'll be fun, I promise!" Insisted the pink-haired girl, staring hopefully up at him but letting go of his arm go nonetheless.
Was all Sasuke said before walking away.
Sasuke's eyebrow started twitching in annoyance, while the girl who just had screamed his name ran up to him.
"I'm so happy to see you! You're as charming as ever!" Without even a look at her, Sasuke went on walking, but found himself surrounded by a group of girls who stood there smiling and batting their eyelashes flirtatiously at him.
"How have you been, Sasuke-kun?" Sweetly asked one of them, and Sasuke had the courtesy to open his eyes to glare at her before making his way right pass the annoying group of fangirls.
But not before saying in a cold and commanding tone,
"Don't follow me."
And suddenly, from inside the barbeque that he happened to be passing by came a running girl; and before he could do or say anything, the girl had jumped onto his back, giggling happily into his ear.
"Long time no see!" she grinned, her warm breath caressing his neck and sending unwanted shivers down his spine. And Sasuke's brow furrowed, and he glared. But he made no move to push the blonde girl off him.
End of Arc 1
We already have finished one arc, which means that there are still three more to go before we reach the end of this story.
The next one is going to start with Ino's reaction to Sasuke's betrayal.
