Of Ears and Puffy Tails

Chapter One: Unwanted Mission


(Mumble mumble.)

"You are not making me wear that..that…thing!"

(Mumble mumble mumle mumble.)

"Are you crazy? Is this some sick joke that old perverted sannin conned you into, Sheishou?

(Mumble mumble.)





"Yes, sensei."


The door to the Hokage's office opened and a defeated Sakura stepped through and quietly closed the door behind her.

God, I am never going to be able to live this one down…ever!

'What was that old bat thinking!!' Sakura's inner self lamented.

Clutching the two black garment bags in her fists, she made her way down the stairs and of the tower.

Walking on autopilot, Sakura headed to Ino's, too deep in her thoughts to really notice where she was going. So deep was she, in fact, she never noticed the presence in front of her until it was too late. Bouncing off the hard chest with an "oomph" from her lips, Sakura landed painfully on her behind.

Blushing nearly crimson with embarrassment she said, "Gomen! I wasn't looking…"

"Obviously." he chuckled, "Unless of course you intended to use my chest as a springboard?"

Recognizing that sexy timber anywhere, Sakura flushed several shades more and slowly turned her head to look up at him. Taking in the familiar loose navy pants, matching shirt and green flak jacket, she took a steadying breath. Moving past the oh so familiar mask and tilted headband, she finally met his amused smoky gray eye. Noting the upturned eye and grin beneath the mask, Sakura wanted nothing more than a convenient hole to appear and swallow her whole.

Wait a minute….I can actually make that happen., she snorted.

'Well, make with the fists of steel and punch us a hole outta here!!" Inner Sakura intoned.

Raising a slim silver eyebrow at her snort, Kakashi held out his hand to help her to her feet.


"Well what sensei?"

Sakura hesitantly took his hand and was hoisted to her feet.

"You didn't answer my question."

Looking completely perplexed, she frantically wracked her brain trying to remember what he asked of her.


Taking pity at her confusion he repeated his earlier question.

"Because you obviously weren't paying attention to where you were going and crashed into me, I had asked you if you intended to use my chest as a springboard?"

Flushing in anger and embarrassment, Sakura clenched her fists and growled out, "Of course not!!"

She reached down and grabbed the garment bags that went flying when she had collided with Kakashi.

"Then what has got you so distracted?"

"Erm, nothing really…just thinking."


"Well, I've got to go. See you around sensei!"

And with that Sakura dashed off with the bags clutched tightly to her chest.


A/N: Well what do you think so far? I know it's kind of short but I felt the chapter ended well where it did. Please read and review…it will encourage me to write more chapters. All spelling mistakes are mine, mainly because I'm too lazy to go and find the correct spelling.
