'God, even my chakra control isn't that bad!'

It was twilight, and Sasuke and Naruto were still out in the woods trying to master the tree climbing exercise.

Well, Sasuke was. Naruto was just faking it...gotta stay in character and all.

He had figured that Sasuke would have gotten it by now, and left-allowing Naruto some privacy to train where no one would hear him.

After finally seeing Sasuke get to the top, Naruto rushed up following him (Hell, he had been doing this since he was 10! Chakra control was very important for sound-manipulating jutsus).

After returning to Tsunami's and eating, Naruto went back out to 'get it perfect.'

After a while, Naruto, exhausted, just fell asleep out in the woods.

And when he awoke...

"Woah, Momma! What's your name?"

"I'm Haku...please to meet you."

'Hot damn! She's way prettier than any girl my age I've seen around the village!'

So the conversation went, about precious people and whatnot, until Haku decided it was time to leave.

"And, you know...I'm a boy."

As Haku turned to leave, expecting a stunned silence, she was shocked to here, "Bullshit. There is absolutely no way you're a boy."

That'd never happened before.

Most people just believed her when she said it...or if they doubted, they kept it to themselves.

"Excuse me?"

"You can see it in the way you walk, in the way you talk, and in your lack of an Adam's Apple. You're no more a boy then I'm a horse."

"...I see."

"You are, however, one of the most beautiful girls I've ever seen."

'Oh God, Oh God, don't blush, don't-no, I'm blushing. That's just going to encourage him. Wait...where's that music coming from?'

Naruto took her moment of thought to subtly create some Kage Bunshins, and had them start making some slow guitar music.

As it grew louder and louder, Naruto walked closer to Haku, who was clearly nervous.

"And I know how to treat beautiful women."

And with that, Naruto began to sing.

"Wise men say only fools rush in
But I cant help falling in love with you"

As Naruto walked forward, Haku walked backwards. She was also blushing, badly.

'This is why I wear that mask! How is one supposed to handle this?'

Well, ya can't, really...if you spend your life traveling around with a male missing-nin. Ya don't get that much human interaction that way.

And Naruto continued.

"Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I cant help falling in love with you"

Haku had backed up into a tree at this point, and was too panicked to realize that she could move around it.

Naruto reached out, and stroked her cheek. He smiled at her, and, noting how incredibly nervous she looked, turned around and walked the other way a little.

He continued to sing.

"Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be"

Haku sighed a bit, and regained her composure a bit.

'Get a hold of yourself! You're a strong, independent kunoichi! You can control the situation! Don't let the words of this boy get to you.

And just as she was about to interject, and try to stop the singing, Naruto turned back to her, and continued.

"Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I cant help falling in love with you"

And the blush was back!

Naruto took her hand, and kissed it. Haku's blush deepened.

All thoughts of making him stop singing fled her head.

She had never had to deal with interested men...most people she interacted with thought she was just an unusually effeminate boy. And Zabuza had the good sense to keep her away from the types that LIKED unusually effeminate little boys.

Haku thanked God daily that Zabuza had turned down Orochimaru's offer to join Sound.

And then her thoughts were brought back to the boy in front of her, as he continued to sing.

"Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things are meant to be
Take my hand, take my whole life too
For I cant help falling in love with you
For I cant help falling in love with you"

'I...I just can't deal with this. I've never wished, until now, that I had undergone courtesan training. At least I'd be able to handle this! What the heck am I supposed to do?'

So, she did the only thing she could do: Run.

She had at least kept enough composure to remember that she couldn't use any of her jutsus, as that would tip her hand too early.

As for Naruto...he was inwardly cheering his success in proving that girls DID love a man who could sing, while groaning about how quickly she had fled.

Ah well...there'd always be next time.

Author's Notes: The song- "I can't help falling in love with you", by Elvis.

Well, this is the last chapter for the story… the musical, whenever I get around to completing it, will be posted separately.

This was the first story I ever attempted (and it's been done for quite a while… just hadn't gotten around to posting it here), and though it's basic premise is a story type I hate (karaoke fics), I think I turned it into something more interesting then usual.

Thanks for reading : ).
