Author's Note: The following tale is, once again, somewhat based off a true story.
Ringtone References: Don't Stop Believing by Journey and Come Sail Away by Styx. In this universe, Naruto (like me) has a heavy appreciation for classic rock – something that was passed down to him from his father.
Papers were shuffled and chairs rolled back as negotiations were brought to a temporary halt for lunch. Minato's company had been courteous enough to provide catering, but with the stress levels being where they were, Minato figured he couldn't really blame anyone for wanting to take a breather.
Don't stop! Believing! Hold on to that fee-hee-eeling!
Ignoring his phone, Minato continued to shuffle through his numerous handouts, hoping to store then away in store them away in some organized manner before leaving himself. Whoever it was could leave a message and wait until next week when he felt like dealing with the world ag—
Come sail away! Come sail away! Come sail away with me, lad!
Without hesitation, Minato pulled his phone from its carrier and jammed it between his ear and shoulder.
"No, Naruto, I am not canceling on tonight's game. And don't you dare tell me you're canceling on me or I may need to punch something." Giving up on organizing his papers, Minato shoved them all into his briefcase and stood up to leave.
The sound of his son chuckling brought a smile to Minato's face. "No, Dad, I'll be there for sure. I just wanted to tell you something."
Using the hand carrying his bag, the businessman hit the elevator call button. "What is it?"
There was a moment of silence during which the elevator arrived.
"I did it."
Minato frowned, nodding at the crowd before him in thanks as they made room for him. "Did what?"
"I had sex."
"Isn't it a bit late to be making this announcement?" Minato asked, turning to face the front of the lift as the doors closed. "I kind of guessed as much back when I had to buy you your first box of condoms."
"No, I mean I had sex with Sasuke!" Naruto clarified.
"Sasuke?" Minato's mind momentarily blanked. "Sasuke Uchiha? You had sex with Sasuke Uchiha?"
From somewhere behind him, a person coughed.
"Yeah, we're dating and madly in love, remember?"
The flabbergast immediately left him as Minato's brain reminded him that his son was still gay.
"I figured I'd let you know so that you don't accidentally walk in on us someday or something."
"Ah, so I'm to consider this a warning then?" Minato shuffled to the side as the elevator came to a stop and more people got on as others tried to exit.
Naruto laughed. "Not really. Can I ask you something?"
"If it's for my blessing so you two can get married, it'll have to wait until after this whole sex revelation sinks in." Minato did a bit of a double take as he noticed a few of the stares he was getting. "My son had sex," he informed them quietly before returning his attention back to the conversation at hand.
"Well, I just wanted to make sure I did it right…" Naruto trailed off sounding a bit unsure of himself. "I mean, it felt great and he didn't complain and we both got off, but…he's just kind of lying there on his stomach…like a dead fish or something.
"Hmm…" Minato scratched his chin in thought. "A dead fish, you say?"
"Yeah. He hasn't moved since I pulled out!" Naruto gasped. "You don't think I broke him, do you?
"I doubt it. He's probably just recovering," Minato reassured. "You have a tendency to get a little enthusiastic, and I'm sure that trait stays present in sex." From the corner of his eye, Minato noticed a woman's eyebrows rise before she flashed an approving smile and gave him a thumbs up. "I'm being signed that's a good thing, so you shouldn't worry too much about it."
"Okay…" Naruto sounded a bit dubious, causing Minato to automatically go into Father Mode.
"Just make sure you're there with a glass of water and Tylenol when he wakes up." The elevator dinged as it finally reached the ground level and Minato stepped off. "A warm meal probably wouldn't hurt either."
"Good idea! I'll ask Sasuke's mom to whip something up!"
"That's the spirit! Now, I'm about to grab lunch, but we're still on for tonight?" Minato asked as he entered the building's food court.
"Definitely! You'll be home on time, yeah?"
Glancing at his watch, Minato estimated how much longer the meeting would last. "Oh yeah. Without a doubt. We may even have time to grab a bite to eat."
"Yes! I want Mexican! I'll see you tonight, Dad! Love you!"
"Love you, too."
Frowning as he hung up, Minato stared forlornly at his phone for a moment before speed dialing the first person on his list.
"I already told you, Minato, I don't care if Naruto cancelled on you, I'm not going –"
"Kushina," Minato whined.
"—I have a date!"
"Naruto just had SEX!" Minato interrupted. "With Sasuke! The Uchiha!"
The following pause went on for so long that Minato grew a bit worried.
"Did you hear me?"
"HA! You owe me ten bucks!"
"I told you he was gay!" Kushina crowed triumphantly, her voice going distant as if the phone were being moved away from her head so that she could wave her arms in a celebratory dance.
Minato rolled his eyes, taking his place in line before one of the various cash registers. "We already knew that."
"Yes, but the sex makes it official!" his ex-wife argued.
"Does not!" Minato tried to argue back, only to be cut off.
"Whatever! You still owe me ten bucks!"
With that the line went dead. Shaking his head, Minato tucked his phone away and sighed as he looked up at the posted menu. He was pretty sure Kushina still actually owed him ten dollars from their last bet…
