Itachi looked bored. He easily side-stepped Sasuke when the younger Uchiha charged towards him again.
Sasuke tried to keep his balance but in the heat of battle he found he'd forgotten his training in Hinata's body. It didn't help that he'd woken up that morning feeling strange. He ignored the feeling and continued his preparation. This was his chance to kill Itachi. He couldn't pass it up just because he was feeling "strange".
He swung wildly and moved erratically.

Itachi wasn't even bothering to fight against him.
Sasuke roared. He was getting angry and frustrated. Itachi's stoic attitude was an insult.
Worse, Sasuke realized, was that he would have acted the exact same way had their situations been reversed.
-

Itachi knew full well he was antagonizing the gorgeous woman who was struggling with all of her apparent might.
Itachi wondered why the Hyuuga wouldn't use her precious Byakugan.
-

High in the branches of the forest, Hinata watched the two with a grim frown.
"He's not doing well at all." Naruto sighed.
"Nope." Kakashi groaned, "He's too emotional."
"He's all over the place." Iruka agreed.

"He's going to get me killed." Hinata hissed, "I should go down there and stop this nonsense."
"Don't even joke." Iruka said, "The appearance of Sasuke would be disastrous. Itachi's only allowing Sasuke to battle him now because, one – he doesn't know its Sasuke and two – he's interested in seeing a Hyuuga fight. Plus he's probably getting some sort of amusement from provoking him… her… whatever."

Hinata sighed. The only reason they'd come was to make sure Sasuke didn't end up getting her body destroyed and himself killed.
They still didn't know much about why or how they'd managed to switch bodies, but it probably wouldn't bode well if Sasuke died while in her body.
Then Hinata would be stuck as Sasuke forever!
Complete with emo, hair-care and dick!
SHE COULDN'T LET THAT HAPPEN!
"Hinata!" Neji grabbed Sasuke's arm, "Calm down. We have to be patient and see how this situation unfurls."

Hinata clutched Sasuke's stomach. She'd been feeling strange all day but didn't tell anyone for fear they'd force her to stay behind.
She had to make sure her body was safe!
Down on the floor, Itachi had grabbed Hinata's arm, spun her around and threw her across the clearing.
Hinata winced in the tree.
-

Sasuke clutched his stomach. His vision swam before his eyes.
This wasn't good.
He was unbearably dizzy.
If he didn't go back out there to meet Itachi, who knew what the Uchiha would do?

Sasuke stumbled across the clearing.
"Perhaps it would be advantageous to stop." Itachi said.
Sasuke blinked several times. Itachi's voice seemed to echo.
"N-no…" Sasuke shook his head and immediately regretted the action, "We… we continue!"

Sasuke took a deep breath and assumed the gentle fist fighting stance.
"Are you finished playing?" Itachi asked.
Sasuke remained quiet. His only response was to turn his left hand – whose palm had been facing Itachi – to face himself and motion for Itachi to come forward.
Itachi smirked.

Sasuke moved forward, the details of Neji and Hinata's training running through his head.
Hinata's hands moved as if Hinata herself were fighting and the blows were coming quick and strong.
But Itachi was still able to deflect them all.

When Sasuke aimed for Itachi's chest, Itachi deflected Hinata's hand, grabbed her wrist and jerked Sasuke off his feet.
"Why aren't you using your Byakugan?" Itachi asked.
Sasuke frowned, "I don't consider you worthy."
Itachi's eyebrows rose and Sasuke pulled Hinata's wrist free, "Don't underestimate me."
-

Hinata swayed on the branch and caught herself before she went tumbling down to the forest floor.
No one noticed the action. They were too intent on watching Sasuke and Itachi's very mismatched battle.
Hinata tried to concentrate on something to help keep her mind off the dizziness.

What had Karin and Juugo learned?
The Hyuugas and Uchiha's were distant cousins. For a long time before the village of Konoha existed the two families were as one – intermarrying often.
But when Uchiha Madara had founded the village of Konoha with the first Hokage the Hyuuga family had been offended that their head had not been asked to help found the village.
The two families had a schism and the relations grew bad.

Somewhere in the past, Hinata and Sasuke shared an ancestor. They were distantly related.
It still wasn't a reason as to why the two had switched bodies but perhaps it was a clue.
-

"I'll admit your fighting improved a moment ago but I have no worry as to whether or not you'll defeat me." Itachi said simply.
Sasuke snarled and assumed the stance again.
Again, Hinata's body moved fluidly.
But still, Itachi had no trouble maneuvering against Sasuke.

Again, Itachi caught Hinata's wrist but this time he forced her forwards, towards himself.
"Why are you so intent on fighting me, Hyuuga-san?"
"You ask too many questions." Sasuke hissed.
Itachi was amused. That was something he'd never thought anyone would tell him.

He kept his hand locked around Hinata's wrist and Sasuke moved to free himself.
Itachi pushed him backwards and then pulled him forwards – as if Hinata were a yo-yo.
"You're playing with me." Sasuke spat as Itachi pushed him backwards.
"I enjoy playing with you." Itachi said as he pulled Hinata's body towards himself.
"I know other games we could play." He murmured in Hinata's left ear just before he pushed Sasuke backwards again.
-

"What did Itachi just whisper in Sasuke's ear?" Naruto asked.
Kakashi shook his head, "Couldn't hear."
Hinata rubbed Sasuke's left ear. What did they mean they didn't hear? Hinata heard him as if Itachi had whispered it in her own ear.
In… her… own ear.
-

Sasuke's head swam and Itachi released Hinata's wrist, "You look sick, Hyuuga-san."
"Why shouldn't I?" Sasuke groaned, "You touched me. I feel as though I'd like to return my lunch."
Itachi blinked, "You find me repulsive?"
"I know of no one more disgusting than you." Sasuke swayed on Hinata's feet. He raised his hand and tried to assume the stance again.
Instead he groaned and fell backwards.

Itachi caught Hinata's body before it hit the ground, "Such ugly words coming out of such a beautiful girl." He leaned in and Sasuke nearly shrieked, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?"
"I think you're attracted to me, Hyuuga-san."
"NO! NO, I'M NOT!" Sasuke flailed, growing dizzier and more nauseous. He squeezed Hinata's eyes shut, "S-STOP!"

"I believe otherwise, Hyuuga-sAAAAAAARGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!"
Sasuke yelped when Itachi suddenly released him and Sasuke fell to the ground.
"WHAT THE FUCK!?" Itachi was screaming, "NO! NO! THAT IS NOT COOL! OH, JEEZ… OH GOD, KISAME! KIIIIIIIIISAAAAAAAAAAAMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!"

Sasuke sat up. He suddenly felt much better.
He wondered why 1) Itachi was screaming – something he'd never seen his older brother do and 2) why his clothes felt so tight and weird.
-

"WHAT!?" Kisame yelled back, still in mid-fight with Suigetsu.
"WE'RE GETTING OUT OF HERE!" Itachi yelled, "I NEARLY KISSED MY BROTHER!"
"WHAT!?!?" Kisame turned and saw Itachi gagging and Sasuke sitting on the floor. Wearing girl's clothes. Tight girl's clothes.

Suigetsu took the opportunity of Kisame's distraction and slammed the blunt edge of his sword against Kisame's skull.
The blue-skinned man grunted and toppled over.
"I WIN, BITCHES! I WIN!" Suigetsu crowed, "SUSHI TONIGHT! WHO WANTS FIN!? AHHHAHHA!!!"
-

"Oh shit." Kakashi said, "We'd better catch Itachi before he gets away."
"Ahhh!" Hinata sighed as the four male ninjas jumped out of the tree, "I feel much better."
She wrapped her arms around her chest, "I missed you girls!"
-

As Suigetsu raised his blade to begin hacking the unconscious Akatsuki member to pieces, Itachi moved forward.
He grabbed his partner and fled into the trees.
"MY SWORD!" Suigetsu screamed, running after the two, "I WON IT FAIR, UCHIHA! HAND IT OVER!"
Sasuke ran after his brother, "WHAT'S THE MATTER ITACHI!? I THOUGHT YOU LIKED MEEEEEEEE!"
"WAIT SASUKE! MAYBE YOU SHOULD CHANGE YOUR CLOTHES!" Karin ran after Sasuke, "I HAVE THEM HERE! I KEPT THEM FOR YOU!"

"Too much." Kakashi said as he watched the group disappear, "Too chaotic. Uchiha Itachi has escaped."
Juugo trailed after his group, "See ya'."
"Bye!" Naruto called.

Hinata jumped down to the group of Konoha nins, "But how?"
"Who cares?" Naruto asked, "Just be happy you're back to normal."

"We never speak of this again." Neji said.
"Ever." Hinata emphasized.
"Agreed." Iruka and Kakashi said.
Naruto nodded, "Yup."

The End


...

what... the... fudge...?

I... I'm sorry. B-blame the plot bunnies! THEY DO CRACK! I... I'M SORRY!

But yea, that's the end.
I can't write anymore because i have no more ideas for this story.
But I did have fun writing it and all his cracknacity.

I hope you guys had fun reading.
I rather enjoy the image of Sasuke running after his brother, taunting him while wearing tight girls clothing.

I could not, for the life of me, think of a good reason WHY they'd switched bodies.
Let's assume it had something to do with the idea that they're distantly related.

I hope you guys aren't too disappointed in me. (It's ok, I'm used to it. LOL)
I STILL LOVE YOU IF YOU ARE.
(But seriously, isn't it better that the story has some sort of ending and I didn't just abandon it? T-that counts for something right? Right guys?? -crickets- Guys?)

Thanks for all the lovely reviews. I hope I at least made you giggle.
