Summery: In which, Naruto will stop if Sasuke stops, and vice versa.

Disclaimer: I'll never surrender.


I'll Stop If You Stop!


Naruto rounded on Sasuke in the training grounds, shoving the Uchiha's chest as the other boy shot him a surprised look.

"God Damnit, Sasuke!" Naruto yelled without warning, "why do you have to be so affectionate to me all the time?"

Sasuke, quickly recovering from the Uzumaki's sudden aggression, glared icily at Naruto - shoving him back with as much ferocity.

"Well, maybe I'd stop being so 'affectionate' if you'd stop being so thoughtful to me!" The Uchiha retorted harshly.

Naruto scowled at the other boy, raising a hand to point accusingly at him.

"Stupid teme!" The blond seethed, "I only do that because you buy me ramen!"

Sasuke hit the offending finger away, feeling his hands tighten into fists at his sides.

"Well, maybe I'd stop if you stop being so frickin' caring all the time! Always doing things for me without me even having to ask!"

Naruto's face flushed red in outrage.

"OH YEAH?" He shouted, "WELL MAYBE I'D STOP IF YOU WOULD STOP BEING SO FUCKING SEXY!"

Sasuke, eyes wide with infuriation, stepped close enough that he was right up to Naruto's face, their noses almost touching, and hollered back;

"YEAH? WELL MAYBE I'D STOP IF YOU WOULD CUT OUT SHOWING UP IN MY DREAMS NAKED!"

Naruto gritted his teeth, his body now shaking with anger, and eyes filled with contempt as he yelled;

"FINE! IF YOU STOP MAKING ME LOVE YOU SO GODDAMN MUCH!"

Sasuke flailed his arms in the air in exasperation, shouting even louder;

"OKAY! IF YOU STOP WALKING AROUND LIKE THE FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THING THAT YOU ARE!"

Naruto squinted his eyes in concentration as he screamed;

"DEAL! IF YOU COME PICK ME UP AT EIGHT TONIGHT FOR A DATE!"

And Sasuke, summoning all the rage he held in his body, doubled-over to bellow as loud and shrilly as he possible could;

"SURE! IF YOU WEAR THOSE LEATHER PANTS I LOVE ON YOU!"

A moment of absolute silence stretched between them, both of the boys panting heavily as their anger ebbed away, and their eyes met stonily.

"Fine!" They both shouted in unison.

Then they stormed away from the training ground, huge grins spreading across their faces, and leaving a very stunned Kakashi and gaping Sakura behind.


A/N: ... Yep.
