In His Arms
Ch. 6
Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto...
Pairing: Sasuke and Sakura

Sakura was whispering her plan to Sasuke as they walked to Ina and Shikamaru's house, which wasn't too far away. When she had finished, she asked, "Do you get it?"

"No, not entirely, but I think I can do something about it. Should I just follow your lead?" Sasuke asked, not wanting to mess up her plan because he wanted to get Shikamaru back, hating his friend for always being right.

"Yes. Just follow my lead." She rose up and kissed him lightly on the lips, pulling away when he was about to deepen it. She turned around, and forced herself to be very angry. "Sasuke! I'm very upset at you! How dare you."

"You're mad at me?!" he said, not realizing it was his cue. "What the heck's your problem?"

"What's my problem?! What's your problem?" She turned around and glared at him.

Oh! "It's not my fault you forced yourself on me in my shower! If you didn't want some hot action or a hot reaction, then why the heck did you come and rub yourself all over me?" he yelled back at her.

Looking relieved, she quickly turned around, stomping up the sidewalk to their house. "I did not! You lured me in, pretending to be injured! You played upon my love for you, knowing that I would fall perfectly into your scheme that you had all figured out."

"Did not! You just can't keep your hands off of me." he said rather arrogantly. "Just admit it. You love touching the hard texture of my body. To feel my hands running up your body, causing all sorts of heat rushing throughout your body, making you so hot you don't know what to do."

"Why you-!" Ino opened the door then, causing Sakura to turn around. "This arrogant swine thinks I can't keep my hands off of him!"

"It's true, Ino. You should have heard her. 'Oh Sasuke! Your body's just!' Really. That's what she kept on saying." he said casually.

"Woah. Wait a second. Please, pause, rewind, and play." Ino said, not understanding what was going on.

"I told him I loved him, and he said, 'If you do, let me love you.' And I let him, but he lied to me about being hurt! Plus, he has no intention of marrying me, Ino, and I practically begged him to! You see, we kind of forgot to use protection."

"WHAT!!!" Shikamaru exclaimed, rather loudly, coming to stand next to his wife.

"I slept with her, and now that I have her out of my system, I'm leaving." Sasuke made a move to turn around, but Shikamaru grabbed his arm and turned him back around.

"Sasuke, you need to marry her! What if she got pregnant? You just can't sleep with her after she says, 'I love you.' then leave her to fend for herself and possibly a baby!" he said, then realized what he had just said and to whom. "Sasuke, you weren't kidding, where you?"

"No. I told you that I don't need just one woman. Or was the Naruto that I told? Anyway, I don't care how many I have, as long as they're good in bed."

Sakura gasped. " used me!" She glared at him strong enough to bore holes through his body.

"Sasuke! I can't believe you! You're lower than pond scum!" Ino declared, grabbing Sakura in a hug.

Sakura's shoulders started shaking, and Ino thought that she was crying. Poor Ino! She's going to kill me! Sakura thought, turning her head to look at Sasuke.

"Look what you've done! You've made her cry! You poor dear." Ino said, still glaring at Sasuke.

"Sasuke, now that I'm a married ma, you can tell I'm happy and content. I highly recommend marriage with a woman, and for you, Sakura is the best choice." Shikamaru said, pinning Sasuke with his glare.

What is this? Glare at Sasuke day? Sasuke wondered, looking at Shikamaru, then Ino, and back at Shikamaru.

Sakura, unable to hold back any longer, broke out of Ino's embrace. She turned to Sasuke, and Ino thought, Yes! Slap him! He deserves it!

Shikamaru thought, Sasuke, you brought this upon yourself! I can only laugh from here on out!

Sakura raised her hand, and if contemplating what to do, and Ino was rooting her on the whole way thinking, Sakura! Put some oomph behind it and let her fly! But she shocked them both. She raised her hand, cupped his cheek in her hand, and rose up on tiptoe and kissed him. This time, she allowed him to deepen the kiss, enjoying the feel of his body close to hers.

He pulled back, and whispered, "You better explain to your friend what just happened."

Sakura turned around, and looked at her friend, whose jaw was all the way down to the ground, she was so shocked. "Sorry, but we didn't want to come over and just say, 'We're getting married!' We wanted to tell you in a...dramatic way. Plus Sasuke hated the fact that Shikamaru predicted that he would end up loving me."

Ino and Shikamaru's mouths dropped open. "You're...getting married?" Ino asked, shock totally evident in her voice.

"Yep, we are." Sasuke said, putting his arms around her.

"Why does that surprise you?" Sakura asked them.

"You can't get married!" Ino said.

"But didn't you guys just say we needed to? That I could've gotten her pregnant, so it was my responsibility to marry her?" Sasuke asked.

"Yes, but...Shikamaru! Do something about this! Tell them that they can't do this!" Ino pleaded with her husband.

"Now, now Ino. You need to calm down. Let them get married if they want to. Besides, this isn't too good for the baby!" Shikamaru said.

"What baby?" Sakura wondered. "Ino, are you pregnant?"

"Yes, I am, but that's besides the point. Sakura, are you sure you want to marry him?"

"Yes, Ino, I do. Please be happy for me, Ino. For us." Sakura said, patting Sasuke's arm.

Ino gave in, realizing that her friend was very happy, and that Sasuke really did love her.

"Well, don't that beat all! Sasuke Uchiha getting married! And to Sakura Haruno, too!" Shikamaru exclaimed, going to hug them both, since his wife had "approved" of the happy couple.
A.N. this is just a little extra "story" that I wanted to add. It's about Naruto, so don't get too angry...
Title: Naruto's Excursion

"Man! I only got one little part! I can't believe it!" Naruto exclaimed, walking down the street. "I thought that I was the main character. What happened to the manga title Naruto? It might as well be called Sasuke's Adventure or something lame like that!" He kept on walking until he got to a very big restaurant. "Oh! Food! I love food! Maybe food can help wash away my pain of losing Sakura to that...that...creep!" He ran towards the counter, and sat down. "Give me one, no, two of everything you've got!" He waited, enjoying the smell of food and picturing all of the different types of food in his mind, making his mouth water in anticipation of all the good foods he was about to receive.

"Here you go." the cook said, carrying lots of food.

"Thanks!" Naruto exclaimed. "This is the best part of the story now since Sakura and I don't get together! Food! And lots of it!" He started shoveling all of the food into his mouth, not even taking a break to breathe it looked like. "This is fantastic! Really good." He went to pull out hes wallet (his little green frog purse), and realized that he couldn't pay for all of his meal! Oh no! Not again! He started to get up, but a hand on his shoulder stopped him. "I'll get it. This time, since, after all, you didn't get the girl."

"Thanks, Shikamaru! You're the best!"

"Your welcome, but did I mention that I had be done that I don't have time to do since my wife is expecting a baby, and I want to enjoy all the stages of pregnancy with her?" Shikamaru stated, enjoying the groan he heard escape Naruto's mouth.

"Ah man!" Naruto exclaimed, suddenly dreading the next day.


Finished! Hope you liked the little short story and the last chapter of In His Arms!
Please leave a comment about who I should have Hinat paired up with! I am utterly clueless about who would make the better story: Hinata and Naruto or Hinata and Kiba. Open to other suggestions, too!
