Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto.

I've never really tried to describe dancing before so if you can't see the picture as I do in my head and you want to continue to read the story just go to youtube and put in the Argentine Tango. The movements really don't matter. It's the sensuality that's important.

The Dance

They all sat around the table sipping their drinks. They were celebrating the return of their teammate Uchiha Sasuke. He had come home of his own free will to the surprise of many a ninja. He just showed up two weeks prior a changed man. No one but the Hokage and Sasuke knew why he made a sudden reappearance in Konoha. All they did know was that he had been absolved of all his crimes. He was forgiven and loved by those closest to him. So that night they were having a bash to welcome him home.

They all watched surprised when Hinata asked Sasuke to dance. They were even more surprised when Sasuke accepted. The table occupants watched as their bodies swayed together to the music.

Genma stared at the two for a second before remarking, "You young people know nothing about dancing."

Ino smirked. "You do, of course realize how old that statement made you sound."

Genma ignored her. "If you want to know what real dancing is you should see Kakashi do it."

Kakashi looked up from his book to find several pairs of eyes glued on him. He sighed. Genma talked too much.

"You dance Kakashi-sensei?" Kakashi took in the curious look on Sakura's face and gave a curt answer.


"Come on Kakashi. Don't be modest." Genma turned toward the avid listeners at his table. "One dance. One dance is all it takes for Kakashi to have the ladies fall in love with him."

"Bullshit." Ino spit out.

Genma shrugged. "Don't believe me, but I swear it's true. Dance with him. You'll see what I mean."

Sakura could admit to herself that she was occasionally impulsive by nature but she had a point to prove. "Fine. Dance with me Kakashi-sensei." She held out her hand to him and he ignored it.

"No." Kakashi watched her smile triumphantly at Genma.

"See, not even Kakashi-sensei will back up the load of garbage that's spouting out of your mouth. You can't fall in love with someone with after just a dance."

Kakashi frowned. Surely his ears were deceiving him. Did she just say load of garbage? Against his better judgment, Kakashi stood up. He shrugged out of his jounin jacket and draped it over the back of the chair. It was then that you got a look at the black slacks and the slack shirt that clung to his skin revealing his hard abs and lean body.

Many a female found themselves momentarily riveted.

"Genma." Kakashi said commandingly. "Have them play me a song." Genma smirked and jumped up quickly. Kakashi extended his hand to Sakura.

Take it.

He silently dared. Take the risk that others had unknowingly taken. She looked at him skeptically, but took his hand and allowed him to pull her up.

Genma cleared the floor of all the dancers so that Kakashi and Sakura stood alone on the dance floor. A slow, sensual Latin beat began to play, and Kakashi wrapped one hand around her waist and the other hand he held in his. "Can you follow my lead?"

"Of course." She confidently replied. He assumed it was because kunoichi were trained in all art forms. He would later learn that he was wrong.

He immediately began moving forward cajoling her to retreat. After a few steps her turned a changed the direction of their movement. Kakashi twirled her around the room and she followed him easily. Sakura wrapped her arm around his neck and Kakashi stepped back allowing her to lean into him. He quickly approached her once more and twirled her around so that her back was against his chest. He leaned down and inhaled her lavender scent. Wrapping his arms around her waist, he lightly caressing her stomach. He took note of the shiver that went through her.

Kakashi slowly lowered himself to his knees and let his hand lightly run from Sakura's ankle to mid thigh where her dress stopped. Their was a hitch in her breathing that made Kakashi smile. Sakura turned and threw that leg over his shoulder. Kakashi rose to his feet keeping her balanced. He wrapped his arms around her waist and held her firmly while she let drag her other leg behind her. Kakashi wrapped his hand around her ankle and walked around her in a circle. Sakura broke free and dropped her foot to the ground, then placed her hand on Kakashi's chest and began pushing him backwards letting her hips sway seductively as she pursued him.

The Copy ninja grabbed Sakura's hand and pulled her back against his muscled frame. He leaned in as if to kiss her but Sakura turned her head giving him cheek instead. Kakashi pressed his masked lips against her cheek. He leaned her backwards Sakura arched her back giving in to him. Giving her a light push, Kakashi slid her in between his legs. Her body lay stretched out on the floor. She reached out her hand to Kakashi. He grabbed it sliding her across the floor. Lifting Sakura to her feet they twirled around the room once more. Sakura gave a flurry of kicks as he guided her around the dance floor.

Sakura raised her leg and wrapped it around Kakashi's waist. He took his hand and put it under her bottom raising her up to make their eyes level. Kakashi leaned into her and pressed his face into her neck lightly kissing it as the music died.

Kakashi lowered Sakura to the ground and took her hand leading her back to their table. He held out her chair for her allowing her to sit. It was quiet for a moment. Ino was the first to break the silence.

"I'll admit it. I'm a little in love with him and all I did was watch." A slow smile began to form on Kakashi's face. Everyone waited for Sakura to say something, anything.

Sakura calmly lifted her glass and took a sip of her drink.

"Sorry, it's going to take a little more than a dance for Kakashi to win me over."

Everyone around the table looked disappointed. Everyone except Kakashi that is. He knew the truth behind his ex-student's calm demeanor. He had gotten to her. Even if it was just a little bit he had. How did he know?

She had dropped the sensei from his name. He met her gaze across the table. Sakura raised her glass and saluted him.

Sakura walked into her apartment and closed her door. She leaned against it with her eyes closed.

Love? Love Kakashi? No. Not at all.

Lust? Now that was another thing.

Sakura sighed. "Kakashi." She whispered softly.

"Yes?" Came the reply that she least expected. Sakura's eyes snapped open. There sat the jounin who had totally captivated her with a dance.

"What are you doing here?" Sakura asked alarmed and slightly aroused.

"I've come here to tell you that you're a liar, Sakura."

"I am not."

"You said it would take more than a dance to win you over. I don't believe that's true." He said rising and walking over to where she held up the door. (Or it held her up. You pick.)

Kakashi put his hands on both sides of her head.

"It is true. I don't care whether you believe me or not."

Kakashi chuckled. He leaned down to whisper in her ear. "Okay Sakura. I'll let this go." Kakashi took a nip at her ear.

"For now."

And then the elusive copy ninja was gone.
