Mmm, I've been wanting to try a drabble, yeah.

Go Dei-chan!

(Deidara is not appearing in this chapter)

(But an Akatsuki crackfic is boiling in my brain)


His back was to her, but she knew he sensed her. A cool wind rustled their cloaks.

"Why?" he asked.

"Because…we belong together. Me, you, and Naruto-kun…we belong together."

He turned around, a corner of his mouth tilted wryly. "I figured you'd say something like that." He shook his head and turned away. "You really are annoying."

"Heh, even after all this time. Maybe none of us has grown up after all." She shook her head. "Not like I thought." She put her back to him, knowing that he wouldn't attack her. "I'm really not supposed to be confronting you, you know."

"You aren't only after me, are you?" he asked flatly. "You're looking for him."

"Him?" She questioned innocently, glancing at him.

He whipped around. Fiery hatred emanated from the depths of his dark eyes. He was radiating with a purpose so murderously retributive, she could hardly make out his old self hidden underneath the vengeance. She was so intent on trying to make out her old teammate, that she nearly missed the two words he hissed.

"My brother."

She hesitated, unsure of whether or not confirming that they were out for Itachi was the best idea. "Well," she sighed. "Yes." She eyed him again, but the moment had passed, and he slipped back underneath his apathetic mask. There was no trace of the emotion that he had displayed before. "I know - "

"Nothing," he interjected quietly. Turning his back to her, he said, "If you happen to see him first, don't try anything. Don't even say anything to him. In fact, run away."

"Sasuke-kun - "

"For your own sake, stay away from him." He turned around, glaring fiercely at her. "And if I find that someone has killed him before me…" His eyes flashed with malice. "I'll kill you all."

Her eyes widened.

And, not for the first time, he left her watching his retreating back like a fool.


I luv reviews! And so does Tobi-kun!

Tobi-kun: Please review?

How can you say no to that adorably masked face? Huh Dei-chan? How?

Deidara: Easy. Tobi's an idiot, un.

ACK! REVIEW! OR DEI-CHAN AND TOBI-KUN GET HUGGED TO DEATH FOR BEING SO ADORABLE!
