I've been so busy with my schoolwork and other stories, that I completely forgot to update any of the stories I had running.

I put up two chappies to make up for it. 


"Sasuke, I'm curious. Why did you leave? To gain power or to leave me?" Naruto asked Sasuke, a troubled look in his blue eyes.

"Of course I didn't leave to get away from you, dobe, I love you. I left because of Itachi, you know that." Naruto visibly relaxed, his back hitting the cushion of the sofa, his eyes looking outside the window.

Sasuke stood up to get a glass of water while Naruto still sat on the couch.

"Did you know that Jiraiya and Orochimaru used to love each other?"

"No, I didn't, but it hasn't surprised me."

Naruto looked at him curiously and took the glass of water that Sasuke held out to him. "How come? I was surprised!" he placed the glass on the table, and then on his bare stomach.

"Well, when I was training with Orochimaru he mentioned you and Jiraiya working together."

He took a sip and continued. "The way he talked about Jiraiya showed me that he was close to him or still has strong feelings for your sensei. I know that they used to be comrades before he left."

Naruto chuckled softly at his talk with Jiraiya before, causing Sasuke to raise an eyebrow. "I talked to Jiraiya about it. He still loves Orochimaru."

Sasuke grunted. "Orochimaru will be very pleased."


Naruto lay on the examination table, his hand clenched around the foamy material on the underside. This was going to be his first ultrasound.

Sasuke was seated beside his lover, while Tsunade worked the cool cream on Naruto's abdomen. The blonde hissed at the cold, but other than that, he didn't complain.

As the screen connected to the ultrasound lit up and started swirling along with Tsunade's wrist movements, a small beating came onto the screen, a small, very small body lay in the video.

"There's your baby, brat." She tapped her finger on the screen and chuckled, looking back at Naruto and smiling softly.

The raven was staring at the screen with amazement, clutching Naruto's hand as the blonde observed the screen.

"Shizune! Get the photos!" the assistant went to get them as soon as she was ordered, and came back in with 2 photos. She handed them to Naruto with a smile.


"Our baby's healthy!" Naruto cheered as he walked down the Konoha streets with Sasuke.

"Hn. Of course it is, dobe." Naruto sneered at the comment before smiling again. "Boy or girl, do you think Sasuke?"

Sasuke put an arm around Naruto's waist, thinking to himself. "A boy." Naruto leaned into the small embrace and looked at Sasuke thoughtfully. "Why a boy?"

"I don't know."

The pair walked on, before Naruto came to his favourite ramen shop. Sasuke knew what the boy wanted before he even asked. "Hn."

"Yay! Thanks Sasuke, I love you." Then the blonde threw his arms around Sasuke's neck and kissed him on the cheek.

Sasuke smiled at the display of affection. As he watched the blonde walk off, he murmured a soft "I love you," in return.

When Sasuke caught up to the dobe, he was seated beside Shikamaru, and Neji, who was sitting on the left of Shikamaru, while Naruto was on the right.

"… so yeah, me and Sasuke just got back from the ultrasound, and our baby's okay."

Shikamaru smiled softly. "That's great, Naruto."

Sasuke sat down beside Naruto, putting a hand on Naruto's lower back in a soft gesture. Naruto smiled softly at Sasuke, but turned back to talk to Shikamaru while Sasuke ordered his food.

"How long have you and Neji been together?"

Neji coughed, but his lover smiled before replying, "Uhhhh… 1 year… in about 3 weeks." Shikamaru blushed a bit before eating some more of his ramen, smirking as Naruto inhaled his.


When the couple arrived home, Naruto basically threw himself on the couch, back first and smiled lovingly at Sasuke. "I betcha you're glad you can have children with me, huh?"

Sasuke kissed his lips softly before he licked the other's lips for entrance. The two fought for dominance, the raven winning as always.

"Of course I am, dobe."

Sasuke waited for a reply, but when he didn't get one he looked over at the blonde. Naruto was dead asleep. Guess that means no sex.




Preview of Chapter 5:

"I'm not dressing our baby in that, dobe, it looks ridiculous!"

"It's called style Sasuke."

"Oh, is this coming from the expert?"

"Orange is a good colour, teme!"

"It's a no."

"… But, Sasuke… if you want sex…"

"Get the damn thing!"
