A/N: Well… I don't know what was going through my mind, except that I really, really want a glass of blue razzberry Kool-Aid. Enjoy.


Ino ripped open another packet and dumped the contents into the already blue waters. She tossed the fourteenth container over her shoulder and grinned. She lifted it up to eye level and stared at it for a few long seconds.

"Ino-pig, what the hell are you doing?"

She glared up at a pink-haired girl. "Oh, go away, Forehead Girl. You're in my light."

The other girl didn't move. She stared at the bright blue waters, then at the platinum blond.

"Did you make Kool-Aid?" she asked, raising an eyebrow as high as it would go.

Ino frowned at Sakura. "Yes, I did. And, I'm not sharing with you!" She stuck her tongue out and turned away, picking up a large wooden spoon. She dunked said spoon into the unsweetened mixture and stirred quickly, creating a lovely vortex inside of it. After switching directions five times, she turned further from her pink-haired friend.

She tore out her hair-tie and stood up. She dipped her hair into the bowl until the cool waters touched her scalp. She looked over at an upside-down Sakura and stuck her tongue out.

"You have no chance now, Forehead Girl."

Sakura simply laughed. "Oh, really?"

"Yeah. Sasuke's gonna notice me with blue hair better than he's going to notice you with your stupid pink hair and over-sized forehead!"

They bickered for a while, before Ino pulled her hair out of the water. She grinned at the cotton-candy blue and stuck her tongue out at Sakura again. "Hah! I'd like to see you beat me get Sasuke's attention now!"

At that moment, Sasuke decided to walk by the pair. He didn't even stop for a moment. His rhythm didn't even miss a beat as he said: "Hey, Cotton-Candy Twins."

Ino stared at the boy of her dreams walking away. "No!" she wailed. "No, no, no, no, no!" She glared at Sakura. "I look nothing like you! I'm pretty! I have gorgeous hair! And a normal sized forehead!"

Sakura giggled at her friend's pain. "Oh, well, Ino. So much for getting Sasuke's attention." She turned and walked away, waving at Ino. "You'll just have to wait a couple of months before you get your blond back."


Ino's voice echoed through all of Konohagakure as she sobbed into blue, raspberry Kool-Aid scented hands.
