"Tell me when it's over," came the soft, frightened voice of the woman next to him. The sounds of the horror movie blasted from the T.V. complete with headache worthy screaming and bad acting.

Shikamaru sighed, as Sakura clutched his body tighter. So renting the horror movie hadn't been such a good idea, he thought looking down at the pink haired girl. "If you're not gonna watch it, then why did you want to rent it?"

"Because Ino said it was a good movie," she muttered, her words muffled by his body. "I'll kill her for this."

Shikamaru scoffed and rolled his eyes. "Troublesome woman, you know there are no such things as ghosts."

"But Shikamaru, Naruto told me about that mission he went on. The one with the ghost in the Bird Country," she said with unease.

"There are no such things as ghosts, now can we watch the movie in peace? This was your idea remember?"

"Well…yeah, but I didn't know it was a horror movie! But like I was saying even Neji said it was a real ghost," Sakura said, her arms still clutching his hand in a death grip.

"How troublesome," he sighed. Looking back over at her he wanted to laugh, but knew if he did she'd most likely play dirty and punch him –really hard. "It's just a movie."

"But Shikamaru," she whined, moving closer to him as her eyes were firmly attacked to the TV.

Shikamaru rolled his eyes, she was saying she was scared but still kept watching the movie. At this rate she was going to have nightmares or not be able to sleep because she'd be too worried about ghosts. He could kill Neji and Naruto for making her believe in ghost. "It's not possible," he repeated as she buried her head in his arm, but opened one eye to watch the movie.

"But if Neji said," she started again.

"If Neji said that Ten Ten was a monster, would you believe him?"

"Well, Ten Ten can be a monster…." She started then looked up at Shikamaru seeing his annoyed frown. She smiled back at him.

Shikamaru let out a deep sigh and let his head fall back against the couch and stare at the ceiling. This was going to be a long night.
