A/N: Okay, this is my first Naruto posting. I was introduced to the series about a month ago by my friend Seeker of the Charter and am now hooked! So all of my avid readers for other series, you can blamer her. It's all her fault. But anyway, I love the Sand Siblings, Shikamaru, Sasuke, and Hinata. And I must say Shikamaru/Temari all the way! So here is a little one-shot for everyone who agrees with me.

Shikamaru was sitting in the shade, just outside the examinations tower, half-asleep. He had twenty minutes left before he had to return to work, and didn't feel the need to do anything other than catnap. A few moments later and he felt someone standing over him. After an ineffective attempt to ignore the presence, he cracked open one eye and frowned at Temari. "What do you want?"

She stood there, fan in one hand, glaring back down at him. "You are so lazy, Shikamaru. Have you nothing better to do than lay in the shade all day?"

Shikamaru shook his head and closed his eyes again. Temari immediately poked him with her fan. "How troublesome you women are," he grumbled.

"Shikamaru, you are a chauvinistic, selfish, lazy, inconsiderate man," she growled. "Every time we speak, you prove to me that there is absolutely nothing else to your character and the only thing that you are good for is playing shougi and fighting."

"He's also a great kisser," Ino giggled from behind Temari. "Good afternoon, Shikamaru," she added, dropping to her knees beside her teammate and tapping his forehead-completely ignoring the sand ninja turning five different shades of red above her.

"Yes, Ino. Does Asuma-Sensei have a mission for us?"

"No, I just wanted to spend some time with my favorite teammate," Ino cooed happily, offering Shikamaru a sly wink. "You've been so busy with work lately, that I just wanted-"

Ino went flying about six feet and Shikamaru started to scramble to his feet, only to have Temari's fan slam across his chest. The sand shinobi wasn't paying any attention to him though. She was glaring angrily at Ino. "You pig keep your hands and eyes off of Shikamaru."

Ino rubbed her jaw, but laughed at the other girl. "Are you jealous, Temari? A moment ago, you were saying such awful things about Shikamaru-kun. What was it again? Lazy . . . Selfish . . ."

Temari scowled. "Shikamaru is a chauvinistic, selfish, lazy, and inconsiderate man, you pig, but he is my man!" That said, she spun around, slammed Shikamaru against the tree, and kissed him. When she pulled away with a grim smile, she turned back to Ino. "But I'll concede one point. Shikamaru is good for playing shougi, fighting, and kissing. Going out with him just makes it more convenient to do so." During this Shikamaru had leaned back against the tree, hands folded behind his head, and watched Temari with a smirk. "So keep your hands off, pig!"

Now finished, Temari whirled around, picked up her fan, and started towards the tower. Shikamaru turned back to Ino. "You did that on purpose. I suppose I owe you one?"

"Try two," Ino muttered, rubbing her jaw again. "That hurt."

"I suppose it could be arranged," Shikamaru started, but was cut off by his irate girlfriend, yelling from across the yard.

"Shikamaru, come!"

"How troublesome," Shikamaru answered, but he responded to Temari's call, shoving both hands in his pockets.

Temari stood in the doorway with a small frown. "I meant that. You are mine. And I'm very possessive of my things. Are we clear?"

Shikamaru cocked his head. "Crystal. Oh, and Temari?" His hands flashed, and his shadow connected with hers. "Come here." He took two steps forward and she mimicked him. He leaned forward and so did she. This time he controlled the kiss.
