Girls Are Just As Good As Guys


On TV: Sasuke Uchiha. Age:15. Prodigy and still-present avenger of the Uchiha clan. Will he be able to win the title of "Top Ninja"? Or will he lose to the opposing teams.

Neji Hyuuga.


Naruto Uzumaki.

Hinata Hyuuga.

Kiba Inuzuka.

Temari of the Sand.

Kankuro of the Sand.

Shikamaru Nara.

Ino Yamanaka.

The big question is though...can he lose to most talented kunoichi...Ino Yamanaka. Age: 15. Only child of Inoichi and Kisa Yamanaka. With her mind-bending techniques, Can she beat the Uchiha prodigy. Tune in next Monday to find out as we start our first of seven events.

Sasuke switches off the television and goes slowly walks out to the backyard. He scrunches over sitting on the stone step looking over the small circular pond as he starts to think.

'The first event starts next week. It gives me little time to practice. At least by myself. That loser Naruto has been coming over for about two weeks to practice up for the event. Why did Kakashi-sensei ever pick him...well at least he has a sorta chance of winning than Sakura. But her chakra control does give her an edge. Let see...6 guys and 4 girls are in this event. A total of 10 people. The first event I think is a survival excercise so the ones who cant find their way around would be weeded out and then go on. If I go and--'

At the very moment, Naruto charges in through the back door.
"Hey Sasuke-teme. Come on! Kakashi-sensei said that we should be training. Come on, let's go on out to our training spot."

Sasuke gives in willingly thinking that it would be some good training...maybe.

Naruto and Sasuke quietly cross through town...well actually Sasuke stayed quiet as Naruto kept on kept on saying "YEAH! I'M GONNA WIN THIS EVENT AND BE CALLED TOP NINJA! IT'S JUST ONE STEP CLOSER TO BEING THE HOKAGE! YEAH! BELIEVE IT!"

Sasuke sneers at the knucklehead ninja and keeps walking till they get to their destination. As the raven-haired ninja prepares himself, he hears some voices in the distance. Sasuke walks over and peers through a bush to see Ino, Shikamaru, and Choji training. Ino and Choji were sparring against each other. And Shikamaru was laying on the ground looking

'They must be training for the event too. Now that Nara kid wont be much of a challenge really...but that reporter about that Ino was kind of right. I dont really know much of her techniques besides the Mind Transfer Jutsu. So I dont know what to expect. It would be...'

Deja vu...

Once again...the blond haired ninja taps Sasuke on the shoulder, interrupting his thoughts.

"Hey Teme...what are you doing?"

Sasuke pulls back and stands up straight.

"Nothing. Come on. Let's practice..."

Naruto scratches his head like always in confusion. As he turns his head he catches a glimpse of Team 10 in training and jumps forward out of the bush to greet them.

"Hey Shikamaru! Hey Choji! Hey Ino! Are you guys practicing for the event too?! So are we!"

Ino and Choji stop in their sparring and look at Naruto. Shikamaru sits up and crosses his arms behind his head.

"What do you mean by "we"?"

Naruto looks in dismay and turns around to motion Sasuke to come out of the shadows.

Shikamaru coughs as Ino and Choji look at them with Naruto about to say something again, Ino sits back onto the ground avoiding Sasuke, showing that she was getting over Sasuke.

"Yeah me and teme are going to practice. Mind if we practice with you guys?"

Shikamaru and Choji shrug as Shikamaru motions his hand towards Ino.
"It's up to Ino..."

Naruto looks at Ino is looking up towards the sky. Finally Naruto's eyes met Ino's pure blue eyes.

"Fine...but dont think about even copying or analyzing any of our moves. I'm not going to be losing to either of you guys. You guys can stay here. I'm going to go train by myself. No one follow."

Shikamaru sighs as well as Choji.

Naruto and Sasuke start to get confused.
"What's with her?"

Shikamaru shrugs as he turns to look at Sasuke and turns back to Choji, who nods slowly.


Ino's Training Spot

Ino quietly travels to her special spot in the woods. A quiet pond that is flowed in by a gentle waterfall. She had been training and hanging around lately to get her mind off some things.

Slowly and gracefully Ino hops onto the stones planted above water to serve balance. With each of her steps, confidence grew.

Ever since Sasuke had gotten back to Konoha, Ino's feelings for him had almost been gone. Ino's mind was all over the place now because of the two years that had gone by, as she kept thinking about him.

As Ino keeps moving from one stone to another, she accidently slips and falls into the water.

'Damn...I'm losing focus. Why does he have to suddenly appear? A week from the event. My whole mind is gonna blow if he keeps coming around. Who knew my mind would react like this?'

Ino gets up carefully, soaking wet. She gracefully glides across the water and lays down on the grass drying to dry off, again thinking.

'Why did he ever have to come back...?'

Sasuke's POV

Throughtout the rest of her training period, Naruto, Sasuke, Shikamaru, and Choji were sparring each other. It was past noon, and Naruto, Shikamaru, and Choji had went to Ichiraku's. Sasuke was picked to go and get Ino after he had won the sparring. A gift from Naruto...

Sasuke sighed as he walked along quietly looking for the blond haired kunoichi. As he strolled past, he heard the sound of the waterfall and decided to check it out. He peeked through between some trees and saw a girl with long blond hair, laying on the grass in the sun.

Suddenly, in the blink of an eye, a puff of smoke occurs and the girl wasnt laying on the grass anymore. A string was cut, and a kunai was shot, heading for Sasuke. He immediately dodges it, and a soft hand grasps his arm and bends it back. He was caught in a trap. As he opens his eyes to look up, he sees none other than...Ino Yamanaka.

"What are you doing here? Spying on me or something?"

Ino's POV

As Ino settles in, under the sun...she casually nods off to sleep. A couple hours pass by and Ino awakes to the crunching of grass beneath someone else's feet. She stays still, thinking of a plan. As she carefully sets up her trap, the wondering person came to a stop. And her plan, commensed. Smoke blew everywhere. Right on mark. She cut a string, and a kunai came flying towards the person as she slipped behind him or her bending their arm back and holding them in a stance. The smoke blew away and her crystal blue eyes met onyx ones. She tossed him aside and crossed her arms across her chest.

"What are you doing here? Spying on me or something?"

Normal POV

Sasuke shrugs as she complys her question again.

Ino grows angry and then slowly cools down.

"Well? I'm waiting..."

The blond 15-year-old taps her foot, waiting for an answer to her question.

Sasuke smirks and shrugs again.

"Naruto and the others wanted to know if you wanted to go to Ichiraku's for ramen. So they made me come here to find you."

Ino sighs partly in relief and partly in disbelief.

"Fine then. But you really didnt need to sneak up on me. You really shouldnt..."

Ino grabs her bag and starts to head off with Sasuke trailing behind.

'She seems...different now. Almost as if she had a different personality since we had last seen each other. Like she has dropped everything and became more into fighting. It's definetly certain that her techniques have improved. More than Sakura's too...this one may be hard to beat...'

Ok...well here is what I have for the first one. PLZ LET ME KNOW IF YOU WANT ME TO CONTINUE!
