A/N: I like the idea of this latest story of mine. I think that if I do it right it should come out okay. If not at least I can say that I tried.

Disclaimer: I seriously don't own Naruto but we all know that already


"He loves me I know that he does." The platinum blond thought to her self.

Ino stared at the back of her husbands head. She was starting to become used to this sort of behavior. They had been married for about two and a half years now. Ino was starting to wonder if maybe the passion was starting to die out. She remembered her mother saying that sometimes in marriage things can get a little stale.

"You have to keep things interesting dear." Her mother's voice replayed in her mind.

She shuddered at the many conversations she and her mother had before she officially became Mrs. Uzumaki.

(Flashback)

"So Ino honey you'll be married in a few months. Are you nervous?"

"No way mom. Naruto and I have been together for 3 years. We're good." She nodded in enthusiasm.

Mrs. Yamanaka took a sip of her tea.

"Well I' am glad to see that you're happy. But you know marriage isn't easy."

"Yeah, Yeah I know that marriage is a lot of hard of word, but Naruto and I we can handle this."

"Yes you both are very determined individuals. I'm sure that you will do your best. I don't want to scare you dear so I will tell you that marriage can be plenty of fun."

Ino noticed the mischievous look in her mother's blue orbs.

"Mother!" she shouted.

Mrs. Yamanaka chuckled. "I was just saying dear that there's nothing wrong with having an active fun sex life. I'm sure that you and Naruto are covered in that area."

The younger Yamanaka blushed furiously as she realized her mother was referring to the time where she had almost caught the couple in a heated intimate moment. That would have been completely embarrassing even for Ino; someone who was not shy at all.

"With that being said if things get a little stale just keep things fun."

"Mom I'm not even married yet and you're already treating me like an old married woman."

"Speaking of which when do you and Naruto plan on giving me some grandchildren?"

Ino hastily spit out her tea at her mother's question.

"Mother please!" she yelled.


Ino sighed as she inched closer to Naruto. She wrapped her arms around his shoulders.

"Naruto-kun?" she whispered in his ear.

"Yeah Ino-chan?"

"Naruto I miss you and I'm bored. I want you to entertain me baby." Her voice held a seductive tone.

The blond male let out an exhausted yawn he moved over slightly.

"Ino-chan I'm tired alright we just got back from an A rank mission. Not tonight okay." He yawned again.

Ino pouted she understood that he was exhausted. But she wanted some alone time with her husband.

"You know you've been tired a lot lately. Are you really exhausted." She started running her fingers up and down his arm. "Or is it possible that you just don't want me."

Naruto opened his eyes and turned to look at his wife. There was a far off expression on her face.

"Ino?" he started.

"No I understand. You're too tired to make love to me. Its fine I understand."

The beautiful blond got up from bed placing a robe over her semi nude form. Naruto raised an eyebrow to her. He was more than used to this sort of behavior. She would give him the silent treatment, he would eventually sweet talk his way back into her good graces, and then they would really make up by having wild, passionate sex.

"Alright Ino-chan how long will you give me the silent treatment. Two, three days or are you going to top you last record of a week straight?" he teased her.

She turned to him throwing her pillow at his head.

"Jerk." She muttered.

"What it's true you know that."

"I'm going to sleep in the guest room since my husband doesn't want my company tonight."

She stormed off in a hurry.

"Oh come on Ino-chan don't be…." He was stopped as he heard the door slam shut. He sighed placing his pillow over his head. He disliked arguing with Ino luckily for him this wasn't their most heated argument. Naruto figured that it was because they were both such passionate individuals.

"I'll give her a minute to cool down before I check up on her." He decided.

Ino plopped down on the bed. She was more than just a little frustrated with him. She only wanted to be able to spend "quality" time with him. She remembered how much fun they used to have before they were married. Even in the early days of their marriage they had fun. Now a days Ino was feeling rather undesirable. She knew that he loved her that she was sure of. Was it possible that maybe Naruto had fallen out of love with her? The passionate side of their marriage was definitely starting to dwindle a bit.

"The sad part is we're only 24 we should be fucking like rabbits still." She thought very bluntly.

Ino couldn't help the fact that she wanted to be made love to by her husband. It had been about a month now and in honesty it was driving her crazy. She was even s starting to wonder if he was avoiding her. And then there was her worst fear of all. Had he found another woman? Was that it?

"No he wouldn't I doubt that he's being unfaithful to me."

So just what was going on in that spiky blond head of his. There was many times where Ino wanted to go invade his mind to find out what he was thinking.

"Sometimes I want to shout "Shintenshin no jutsu! Over and over again until I find out the truth."

No matter how much she had wanted to do that she had always decided against it. For some reason her conscience had always won out in the end. Ino was brought out of her thoughts when she heard a knock at the door.

"Go away Naruto I want to be alone right now."

"Sorry but I'm coming in."

The shirtless male entered the room causing Ino to look up at him. She frowned.

"That's a very dirty trick you jerk; coming in here shirtless so that my mind could be so hazy that I forget why I'm mad at you."

"Heh." He laughed. "I'm sorry Ino-chan." He then lay down besides her placing his arms around her waist. "Seriously though how long are you going to be mad at me this time?"

"For as long as I want to be." She answered.

"Okay babe." He kissed her cheek. "You'll cool off I guess, are you coming to bed with me or not?"

"No I think that I'm going to stay here."

She was expecting Naruto to say something else. She wanted him to persuade her to come back to bed. Instead all she heard was the sound of him leaving. She gazed at him with wide eyes.

"That's it you're just going to leave without even trying to get me to come back to bed?"

"Nope." He shot her his familiar foxy grin.

"What? Why the hell not?"

"Come on Ino-chan it's the same thing every time. You get a little pissed at me, ignore me, and then we eventually hit the sheets."

She crossed her arms turning her attention elsewhere avoiding his gaze. She knew that he had a point. It was really actually routine for them.

"I didn't want that to happen this time. I don't want to always feel like we have to solve our problems by having make up sex."

"Ino what's wrong with you lately. You haven't been acting like yourself."

"Huh? I'm fine."

"No." he sat down next to her putting his hand to her arm. "Something's different."

She agreed with him that things didn't feel like they used to. Ino leaned into her husband's chest closing her eyes.

"Naruto what's happening to us." She wondered.
