It's been such a long time, but I have not much of an excuse--but more of an explanation. I moved away, started the university, and only now I was able to get back to my house and have enough access to the gift from god called internet and my own computer.

Still, this chapter is so short that it probably won't make up for the wait. Much less taking into account that there's only one--yup, only one--chapter left of this story, but I hope you guys will enjoy this one as much as I did. And believe me, I did. It's actually one of my favorite ones, if only for Ino's naughtiness and Sasuke's cluelessness.

I'll see you guys around in the next chapter, which I'll hopefully post before this year is over. Also, don't forget to post your thoughts in a review, kay? You guys know how much I love reading them, so let me take this chance to thank you all for support up to this point. You guys are the best.

With nothing else to say, enjoy! And see you guys soon!


Chapter Four: Tour.


"Come on, Sasuke-kun! I'll show you around!"

The dark-haired Uchiha merely raised one brow at the cheerful blonde, "Ino, I used to live here, remember?"

She just grinned at him, "Yeah, I know!"

"Then what's the point? I already know all around Konoha.."

"…Don't be so sure 'bout that"

Ino's voice reached his ears carrying with it an enigmatic hint which irked Sasuke's curiosity, and the ex-avenger opened his onyx eyes and gave her a questioning look only to find her smiling at him, her blue eyes gleaming with an unnamed emotion that he couldn't quite place.

"There's a place you have never seen…"

"And that is...?" He inquired, his disbelief showing up in his arched eyebrow.

Ino though remained unfazed by his clear challenge, merely smiling at him and reaching out to take his hand between hers, meeting his eyes as she answered; deliberately slowly, and loud enough only for the two of them to hear..

"…My room"

I'll let the rest to your imaginations. Nedless to say, it's safe to assume Sasuke probably didn't have much time to acknowledge the purple paiting of the walls in Ino's room.
