Author's Notes: I often get asked in IMs and in some reviews why I am so mean to Sakura. There are two reasons. 1) It's easy. 2) It's fun.

This story is a direct result from my IMs with Mistress Winowyl. She enjoys torturing Sakura as much as I do. I know some of you do like Sakura's character. I just can't imagine why.

Sasuke looked over at Naruto. So this is the Kyuubi's state with its chakra controlled…

Naruto glanced over at Sasuke. His new sharingan's black flames…

"So...Naruto. You're pretty powerful."

Naruto puffed out his chest. "Yep, I am."

"Been working out?"

"Huh?" Sakura began feeling a bit uncomfortable.

"Of course." Naruto said. "Can you tell?"

"A little. I bet my chest is manlier than yours."

"No way."

"Yep, it sure is."

"Prove it." Naruto pulled off his jacket and undershirt.

"Fine." Sasuke began to slooooooowly remove his shirt.

"Hey! What are you two doing? Stop this right now!" Sakura shrieked.

"You're right Sakura-chan, we're not being fair." Naruto said.

"True," Sasuke turned to Sakura. "Let's see your manly chest as well."

"Wha… what?"

"Well that would be fair wouldn't it?" Sasuke asked.

"Uhm, Sasuke-kun? I am Tsunade's apprentice. Not only am I a top medic nin I can shatter boulders with one punch. I have really grown these past three years."

Sasuke nodded. "I can tell you've grown Sakura."

"Really Sasuke-kun?"

"Yes, your forehead is definitely bigger than it used to be."

"..."

"Now please be quiet, I'm not done staring into Naruto's eyes."

THUMP.

Or…

"True," Sasuke turned to Sakura. "Let's see your manly chest as well."

"I don't have a manly chest!"

Hinata walks in... looks at Sakura. Keeping her eyes on Sakura, Hinata slowwwwwwwly unzips her jacket, takes off one sleeve at a time, tosses the jacket over her shoulder, glances at Sakura's eyes, her chest, her eyes and smiles.

"Oh, shut up, Hinata."

Or…

"True," Sasuke turned to Sakura. "Let's see your manly chest as well."

"Wha… what? I am not going to do something like that in public!"

"Forget to shave again?" A nearby Ino asked.

"Well I have been really busy these last few days and… HEY!"
