I do not own Naruto, Of course you baka!

Chapter 1 my world is falling apart!

It was a cloudy day in Konoha, the sky was a beautiful blue and the white curvy clouds made it just perfect. When there are clouds in the sky you are almost bound to find Konoha's famous lazy, Chunin, ninja, Shikamaru.

Shikamaru was lying down in the grass looking at the clouds. He wanted to get away from the shinobi world and clear his thoughts.

"Man my life is just perfect. I finally got the girl of my dreams, I'm a Chunin ninja and I have friends I can trust. What more could I want in my life?" Shikamaru placed his hands under his head. "Maybe I should go see Ino, I mean we were supposed to meet later but I don't think she would care." Shikamaru stood up from his comfy spot on the ground and started walking towards a lot a row of houses. Near him was a small wooded area with a lot of tree's he was passing by when he heard a female laugh come so where near him in the woods. Curiosity got the better of him. He walked by a tree and hid himself behind it so whoever was laughing wouldn't see him. He succeeded in his cloaking and looked around the tree just enough to see who was laughing. It was Ino the one laughing, she was there with Sasuke.

"Why is Ino all the way out here with that Uchiha?" Shikamaru stood there watching wondering what his girlfriend was doing out here with Sasuke. Shikamaru saw Sasuke and Ino stumble land on each other Ino back on ground and Sasuke stomach on Ino. "This does not look good." Just as Shikamaru thought that, he saw Sasuke push himself up a little to get off Ino. Ino then wrap her arms around Sasuke's neck pressing her lips against his. Then Sasuke put his arms around Ino's waist and return her kiss. The two laid there kissing each other, until Shikamaru could watch anymore. He got up trying not to cry running into town.

"I can't believe it! Ino actually did that? Why would she do that to me?" Shikamaru tried so hard not to cry, but couldn't help it. The tears were following down his cheeks leaving tears marks on them. The tears flooded his eyes so he couldn't see where he was going he just kept running thinking about Ino. "Stop crying men don't cry. She isn't worth my tears!" All of a sudden Shikamaru ran into something that made him fall on his butt, his vision was so blurry he couldn't tell what or who he hit but realized who it was when they started to speak to him.

"Hey watch where you're going!" Shikamaru focused on what was speaking to him. When his vision became clearer it was reviled to be Temari of the Desert. He rubbed his eyes try to clear his vision more.

"Sorry I wasn't watching I was going." Shikamaru said trying to hide his tears so Temari wouldn't notice. Temari looked down at Shikamaru she noticed that Shikamaru was crying when he ran into her and laughed slightly.

"O it's you Mr. Crybaby. What's wrong did your little girl friend break up with you?" Temari knew that Shikamaru and Ino were dating, which honestly made her a little jealous since she had a crush on Shikamaru ever since there match at the Chunin Exams. She wanted to tell him but when she heard about Ino and Shikamaru dating she decided not to. Shikamaru sighed a little.

"Yeah she did." Shikamaru was speaking in a soft tone; it was almost like a whisper though Temari heard him. Temari looked shocked, she thought Ino and Shikamaru were going to be together forever.

"O I'm sorry." Temari said in a soft tone sorry tone which isn't like her. She put her hand out to help Shikamaru up off the ground. Shikamaru took her hand and pulled himself up. He didn't know why but at that moment he seemed attracted to Temari more than normal. Shikamaru shoved those thoughts away.

"So what are you doing here?" Temari smiled. "He's still the normal Shikamaru."

"My brother Gaara has a 3 day meeting here with the Hokage. I came along with my 2 brothers."

"O so you're only in town for a few days?"

"Yeah unless Gaara get's more meetings or something. Why?"

"No Reason."

Temari and Shikamaru started walking unaware of what they were doing. Shikamaru looked up at the clouds that were getting dark, it seemed like it was going to rain. "I don't know why but when I am with Temari I feel happy and peaceful like the whole world stops when I'm with her like when me and Ino were dating. Wait does that I enjoy spend time with Temari? I can't, love her can I? I mean she is a troublesome sand kunoichi." Temari looked over at Shikamaru.

"Hey Shikamaru…where are we going?" Shikamaru turned his focus over at Temari. "Wow she is beautiful! Wait why do I think that?"

"Shikamaru?" Temari had a worry look on her face.

"Hey Temari would you like to go get some ramen with me in about a half hour?" "I can't believe I just asked her that, I mean I haven't broken up with Ino yet." Temari looked at Shikamaru stunned at what he was asking. "Was he asking me out?"


"Great then I will meet you at the ramen bar in about 30 minutes you know the way there right?" Temari looked serious now. She doesn't want to look bad in front of a guy especially Shikamaru.

"Of course." Temari then walked away towards the Hokage tower waving to Shikamaru with her back turned to him. "I can't believe I just asked Temari of the desert out. I'm not doing this for a subsatute for Ino am I? Arrg! This whole thing makes me tired. I just want to take a nap. Well better go find Ino." Shikamaru put his hands in his pockets and walked towards the row of houses he was heading for earlier.

He came to a house that had a fence and flowers out side its windows. The flowers were fully healthy and they should be since Ino's mom runs a flower shop. Shikamaru walked threw the fence and towards the door. He pulled his one hand out of his pocket, and knocked on the door lazily, then put it back in his pocket. Ino's mom answered the door smiling when she saw Shikamaru's face.

"Hello Shikamaru! Nice to see you today, you came to see Ino right?" "Ino's mom is way too nice!"

"Yeah, can I speak with her it's important." Ino's mom frowned when Shikamaru said this. She screamed Ino's name inside the house and Ino came down stairs to her mothers call.

"What mom?" Ino looked disturbed.

"Shikamaru is here to see you." Ino's mom left Ino at the door. Ino opened the door and let herself out closing it behind her.

"Hey Shikamaru, listen I am glad you came over here I have something I got to tell you…"

"Ino, I know about you and Sasuke…" Ino looked shocked "and you know Ino I don't like to be played, man this is troublesome." Ino looked worried at what Shikamaru was saying.

"Shikamaru I…" Shikamaru cut her off before she could finish.

"Ino I want to break up."

"Ok Shikamaru and I'm really sorry." Ino's faced turn from a worry look to a smile. She then walked into her house closing the door behind her. Shikamaru let out a sigh of relief and walked away from the Yamanaka household, towards his own home.

"Well that wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. At least Ino took it well." Shikamaru opened his front door and began to walk up stairs. He laid on his bed try to relax and forget about the past.

"Well what's done is done. No use of looking back it's not like I can change it." He looked up at his ceiling, which was a boring white.

"Man why do woman have to be so troublesome?" Shikamaru didn't notice, but he was slowly falling asleep. Until he completely feel asleep.

"SHIKAMARU WAKE UP YOU LAZY BOY!" Shikamaru woke up startled from his mother screaming at him to wake up. Shikamaru rubbed his eyes lazily.

"What, what is it?" Shikamaru sat up in his bed. His mother began to speak in a calmer tone.

"You have a visitor." Mrs. Nara walked over towards his room. "Besides you have been asleep for almost an hour." Shikamaru didn't believe his mother until he looked at the clock. He was asleep for a little over 50 minutes. "O man I fell asleep I was suppose to meet Temari over 20 minutes ago!" Shikamaru tried to pull himself together to meet Temari, until the young sand kunoichi herself walked into his room. He was shocked to see Temari, especially in his room!

"Temari what are you doing here?"

"You were supposed to meet me over 20 minutes ago. Do you remember?"

"Yeah, I'm sorry Temari I just drifted off." Temari walked over to Shikamaru. Shikamaru thought Temari was going to kill him; instead she just sat down on his bed. Shikamaru looked at Temari who had a peaceful look on her face. Shikamaru walked over and sat next to Temari.

Temari just looked at him; Shikamaru was clueless of what to do next. He didn't know what or why but something made him lean into Temari and kissed her. Temari responded by kissing him back and wrapping her arms around his neck. Shikamaru put his arms around her waist and began to kiss her harder. After a few minutes of hard kissing, Temari leaned back away from Shikamaru, just looking at him. Shikamaru wanted to kiss her again, but Temari stood up and walked towards the door. Before she left she looked back it Shikamaru.

"Sorry Shika, but I can't be gone too long or I will get in trouble with my brothers." She laughed slightly and walked out of the room leaving.

Shikamaru and Temari didn't notice but the whole time Shikamaru's mother was watching them. And after Temari left she looked at Shikamaru and asked him 'if he still thinks woman are troublesome'. Shikamaru didn't answer, while his mother walked away laughing slightly.

Shikamaru laid back on his bed trying to drift off to sleep. But couldn't help but think the same thoughts, he was thinking earlier. He looked out the window at the sky, it was raining out. Then he saw Temari running through the rain trying to get back to the Hokage tower not too wet. "What more could I want in my life?" Shikamaru drifted off into deep sleep thinking about his beloved Temari.

I hope that was good. I really like the Shikamaru Temari pairing and wanted to write a story on it. Well I am not sure if I should write another chapter so it is up to the readers. Let me know if you me to continue to write or not. And again please review because the reviews are what keeps me writing. Chihiro-chan (P-O-T-S)
