here's a story i'm excited for! Originally planned as a oneshot...but events happen and make stories longer. So it's a story folks! I hope you enjoy. I looove surprise parties. :) eeee.

dont own Naruto.

Surprise Birthday.

"Sasuke…Shikamaru…when did you two start hanging out?" asked a rather confused Naruto when he came across the 2 boys walking.

Shikamaru and Sasuke exchanged panicked looks, "I could ask you the same thing, Naruto. When did you and Kiba start hanging out?" Sasuke shot back.

Naruto chuckled, "we hang out sometimes…" he answered.

"…yeah…sometimes even with Shikamaru…" Kiba added in.

The 2 pairs stopped talking and just stared at each other for awhile, one curious what the other was doing, the other trying to find a way out of the situation.

Shikamaru then sighed, "…might as well tell them Sasuke, the more help we get the better…" Shikamaru said.

"Hn…" Sasuke thought, he gave in a bit, "well…who else knows about this?" he said talking to Shikamaru, completely ignoring Naruto and Kiba.

"Well…no one. I was just about to tell Choji…" Shikamaru answered.

"Oh I see…I understand. Choji has a right to know…" Sasuke told Shikamaru

Kiba and Naruto just watched the two infront of them talk about something they had no idea about.

"Okay…how come Sakura cant know about this. She is after all her…" Shikamaru started saying before Sasuke cut him off…

"uh...shhh! Well…we cant tell Sakura cuz she'll NEVER be able to keep it a secret. Might as well surprise them both…" Sasuke told Shikamaru.

"WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU TWO TALKING ABOUT?!" Naruto said finally getting pissed off. He didn't want to be left out.

Sasuke and Shikamaru moved closer to Kiba and Naruto, "you better not tell a soul about this…" Sasuke said whispering.

"Yeah. You have our word…" Naruto said.

"Shikamaru and I are planning a surprise party for Ino…" Sasuke said.

Naruto and Kiba grinned a very big grin. "YOU ARE?!" the blonde said excitedly.

"Yeah. Now HUSH!" Sasuke shushed his teammate.

"Well, when is it?" Kiba asked.

"Two days from now, on her actual birthday…" Sasuke told them.

"Has Ino never had a surprise party before?" Naruto wondered.

"Nope…that's why Sasuke's throwing her this one…" Shikamaru said.

Sasuke blushed a bit, "he wanted to do something special for Ino's birthday." Shikamaru continued explaining.

"You can shut up about that now, Shikamaru…" Sasuke told his pineapple headed friend. Kiba and Naruto laughed at a slightly embarrassed Sasuke

"Hnn…so only us four know about this?" Kiba asked Sasuke and Shikamaru.

"Yeah…" Sasuke replied, "and Shikamaru was gonna tell Choji…"

"Well…okay. Do you need us for anything?" Kiba wondered.

Sasuke smirked, "…well…actually…" Sasuke said in a sort of fiendish way.

"uhh…" Kiba and Naruto said as their eyes twitched.

They composed themselves and had the courage to ask what the plan of Sasuke was.

"okay…well…I just thought about this yesterday…and that's why I needed Shikamaru…" Sasuke told them.

"alright then, what to do you guys have so far, then?" Naruto asked.

"Well…I want the Suna sibs to be there. After all…Ino and Temari are like this…" Sasuke said. And he crossed his middle and index finger to show them that they were close.

Then Shikamaru chuckled, "yeah, that and…you want Gaara to see Ino's your girlfriend…" Shikamaru said. Kiba and Naruto laughed.

Sasuke blushed, "hey! That's not it…I know Ino's really good friends with them. Plus, Gaara's cool…" Sasuke said, "and it's not like you aren't excited to see Temari…" Sasuke teased back.

Shikamaru just shrugged that off, "whatever…this is such a drag. Im not a party planner…" Shikamaru said.

"Well…okay, for the food, I think pizza and pasta will do, something like that…I was thinking, Choji…" Sasuke said trailing off.

"No." Shikamaru suddenly said. All heads turned to him, with arched eyebrows… "I know Choji's like my bestfriend and all…and he loves to eat, but he cant be put on food duty." Shikamaru explained.

"So…who's it going to be, then?" Sasuke asked.

"Tenten…she's also got some restaurant connections, I think…" Shikamaru said.

"Ten's a good idea for the job, y'know…" Kiba added.

"Okay, Tenten it is. Alright like this, Naruto…you go tell team Gai about this. Tell Tenten what her part is…" Sasuke commanded.

"Okay…" Naruto nodded, "but I wanna stay to hear the rest of the plan."

"Fine." Sasuke said.

"music?" Kiba asked.

"Well…I'm kinda working on that…I think I'll be needing Temari's help for that one… which brings us to Shikamaru, you're in charge of the guest list, with Choji." Sasuke said.

"Okay…who do you want there?" Shikamaru asked.

"well…just us and the Suna sibs…" Sasuke said.

"So…Rookie 9, Team Gai and the Suna 3…" Shikamaru said.

Sasuke nodded, "Kiba. I want your team to be in-charge of the decorations, I want Hinata to take charge of your team, since, she does know Ino well." Sasuke turned to Kiba.

"make sure there are flowers, the colors purple and sky blue and streamers and balloons…" Sasuke said. Kiba agreed to it.

"I'm buying the cake with Shikamaru tomorrow. So, Naruto you don't need to get cake." Sasuke said. Naruto nodded.

"so, I'll handle getting Ino out of her house, you guys HAVE to set up there…" Sasuke was thinking, making this up as he went… "oh! I'll take care of Sakura…I have to have them both out, and I have to be in Ino's house before her…ughh." Sasuke was getting annoyed something always came up.

"…anyway, whatever. I'll take care of those two…Shikamaru, have Temari come earlier—tomorrow. And Naruto, I'll also be needing ice-cream, so inform Tenten…" Sasuke continued.

"…so I think we've got at least the basis of a party." He said.

Kiba, Shikamaru and Naruto agreed with him.

"Guests, Food, Décor and Music…" Sasuke said the 'check-list' out loud. "So you all know what to do?" he asked. They nodded again in unison.

"Naruto, what's yours…?" Sasuke asked to make sure.

"Food…with team Gai. Except no cake…and I'm guessing Tenten will be the leader for this 'mission'?" Naruto said.

Sasuke gave him one nod which meant Naruto was correct, "…Kiba?" Sasuke continued the quizzing.

"Uhm. Our team will handle the décor for the party…leave it up to Hinata. We'll just follow her." Kiba said bleakly.

"good…and you, Shikamaru?" Sasuke turned toward Shika.

"Guest list, with Choji. So I'm guessing we're making calls tonight." Shikamaru said.

"actually…no." Sasuke said. Shikamaru looked confused, his genius mind hasn't processed what Sasuke meant, "since it's only going to be us, and I'm already giving every team an assignment, they're obviously going to be informed about the party…" Sasuke explained. Shikamaru slapped his forehead. "You're only going to be calling the Suna peeps." Sasuke said.

"hnn…alright." Shikamaru said.

"Oh, but make sure everyone can make it…" Sasuke said, "that means you two have to help him out with that." Sasuke said to Kiba and Naruto.

"Okay. So I've got cake and music…so, alright. Let's get to work." Sasuke said with a smile. The other boys grinned as well, and off they went to do their selected assignments.
