1. First Kiss

"You've never kissed anyone before?" Kiba asked, eyes wide and staring at his friend in disbelief. Shino shook his head and Kiba raised an eyebrow, surprised. "Are you serious?"

"Not everyone is as romantically advanced as you are, Kiba." Shino huffed, irritated.

Kiba shook his head in dismay, "But you're already 7! At this rate you'll never get a chance to kiss someone." He sighed at the tragedy of it all.

"It's not that big of a deal," The other boy grumbled, not seeing why his friend was making such a fuss about it. "I'll just wait until I am older."

"No, no, no! That won't do at all!" Kiba exclaimed, flailing his arms over his head in emphasis. "You gotta have something to talk about with all the ninja buddies you'll be making when we graduate from the academy! And I bet they've all already had their first kisses." Kiba nodded his head definitely. "And anyway, I've already had four! I bet we can find at least one for you..."

Kiba was silent for a moment then, his head cocked to the side and one finger rubbing his chin, as though he were thinking very hard indeed.

"There's no choice." Kiba stated grimly then, as Shino raised a delicate eyebrow at his friends sudden dramatic tone. "We've gotta get you your first kiss."

Shino rolled his eyes behind his glasses, though he knew Kiba could tell.

"Well, who am I supposed to kiss then?" Shino asked, thinking he had Kiba there, and that would be the end of the matter.

Kiba thought for a moment on who would make a suitable kissing partner for Shino, but found no one who would do. He sighed and ran a hand through his hair.

"I guess I'll have to do it then." Kiba stated, nodding his head as though he had just volunteered for some great sacrifice on his part.

Shino's eyes went wide, "Wha-"

Kiba leaned in before the other boy could mouth off any protest, and softly kissed him.

It was clumsy, and a little wetter than Shino would have liked, but he found his eyes fluttered closed after a moment, and time seemed to still.

Before either of them were aware, Kiba had pulled back, a triumphant grin on his face showing off his sharp canines, before running away, laughing loudly as he went.

Shino stood for a moment in stunned silence, before taking off after his friend, his own quiet smile lingering on his lips.
