A/N: This is my first Naruto fan fic, so please be kind. Flames will be ignored, but I don't mind constructive criticism. Here's what I consider a flame:

"This sucks. You suck. Don't ever write again."

As you can see, all this does is hurt my self-esteem. If you have something bad to say about my stories, please tell me what I can do to make it better. Example:

"This was one of the most atrocious stories I've ever read! You had no hook or story structure whatsoever, your sentences needed variation, and for the love of Pete, keep a thesaurus with you at all times!"

See? This is an example of (severe) constructive criticism. It tells me how bad the chapter was and what I need to do to make it better. So if you have a beef about my chapter, please tell me so in this format.

Also, I can't write without music, so in the Author's Notes, I like to add a playlist of the songs I listened to while writing. This chapter's playlist was "Change your Mind" by All American Rejects, "Worst Day" by Simple Plan, "I Write Sins, not Tragedies" by Panic! At the Disco, and "Wonderful" from Wicked.

Read and Review!

"For the last time, will you tell me where we're going?" asked a very aggravated Sasuke as his teammates dragged him down the hall.

"No," Sakura replied tersely.

"Why not?"

"Because if we told you, you wouldn't go," Naruto explained.

Sakura whacked him sharply in the back of his head "Idiot! Kakashi-sensei told us not to reveal more information than necessary!" She sent Sasuke an apologetic look. "I'm sorry, Sasuke-kun! Kakashi-sensei thinks it's for your own good."

"What's 'for my own good'?!?!?" Sasuke yelled abruptly.

Naruto smirked at Sakura. "Now who's revealing too much information?" The pair continued to bicker until they reached a small classroom at the end of the hall. The sign on the door read "Anger Management 101".

"What's going on here?" Sasuke inquired before he was ruthlessly pushed into the room by his so-called friends.

"Sorry Sasuke. We're only doing this on Kakashi-sensei's orders," Sakura explained.

"Don't be sorry!" Naruto snapped. "Maybe this idiot will finally get the help he needs!" The pair of them ran off, leaving Sasuke to examine his surroundings.

The classroom was rather small, with bright yellow pillows set on the floor in a circle. Sasuke felt a wave of nausea glancing at the walls, which were magenta and decorated with rainbows and smiley faces. He noticed that he widows had bars on them to keep students from escaping by jumping out of them. Sasuke made a mental note to get back at Sakura and Naruto once he got out of here.

Soon the other students began arriving. First came Neji, who had been dropped off by Lee and Ten-Ten with a reminder to "use the power of youth". After him entered Gaara, who had been bullied into taking the course by Temari. In Sasuke's opinion, she needed anger management more than Gaara, but he wasn't about to voice that. The last person to enter the class was—Sasuke inwardly groaned—Ino, who promptly sauntered over to stand next to Sasuke.

I swear I'm going to slowly and painfully murder Naruto and Sakura as soon as I get out of here, Sasuke thought bitterly. "Where's our teacher?" he asked out loud.

"Who cares? Just as long as we're together," said Ino, leaning in closer to Sasuke. Sasuke inched away from her as subtly as he could—which wasn't very.

Sasuke glanced over at his fellow prisoners, I mean students, for back up, but found none. Neji was too busy muttering things like, "Maybe it's my destiny to be unable to manage my anger" and, "Curse the main branch." Gaara merely stared off into space looking thoroughly uninterested.

Suddenly, a soaking wet woman clad in a sky blue kimono embroidered with cherry blossoms entered the classroom. "Hello people!" she beamed. "Isn't it a magnificent day? It's raining cats and dogs outside, I had to walk seven miles to get here, and my sandal strap broke on the way. But isn't it just great to be alive?" She shook the water out of her long auburn hair, managing to drench every single person standing in the vicinity. She glanced up at their glares and gasped. "Oh, where are my manners? My name is Suki, and I'm—"

Please don't say teacher! Please don't say teacher! Please don't say teacher! Sasuke prayed.

"—your anger management teacher!"

"CURSE THE MAIN BRANCH!!!!!!!!!!" Neji roared.
