Miranda (Twelfth Night), Act V, Scene I


Sasuke couldn't believe it, he was married.

He stared at the gold band around his ring finger as if he expected it to come alive and bit him.

Across from him Naruto also openly showed his disgust for his ring.

They hadn't bothered with a ceremony but thanks to Tsunade's sick sense of humor Naruto and Sasuke had been forced to dress up formally when they signed the marriage license. Tsunade and her entourage along with Naruto's parents and a judge had attended to bear witness.

They had gotten married outside in the estate's garden – a lavish landscape of greenery that included a marble walkway and was decorated with beautiful statues and fountains.

They sat outside where tables and chairs had been set-up in the shade of a large tree. Servants came in and out of the house refilling their wine glasses and serving them pastries.

It would have been a perfect place to have an actual wedding Sasuke thought absently.

Tsunade smiled smugly at both of them, looking over the marriage license. "No kiss?"

If she had been a lesser human she would have instantly shriveled at the twin glares she received for her comment.

Clearing her throat she nodded to her bodyguards and aids as a queue for them to exit. "Congratulations to you both," she said politely. "Don't fuck this up."

Then she left.

"Is that the time!" Naruto exclaimed looking at his bare wrist. "I have a mission in less than two hours so I should probably go change."

"Hold on a moment Naruto there's something we need to discuss." Kushina placing a hand on Naruto's arm.

"If it's about Neji I already –"

"No, son, it's about you," Minato said. He looked at Sasuke who stared back at him. "Both of you."

Naruto furrowed his eyebrows. "What is it?"

"Your mother and I think its best that you move in together."

Sasuke inwardly sighed. He should have seen that coming.

Naruto blinked owlishly. "What?"

"It'll give you a chance to get to know each other."

"We don't need to get to know each other!"

Minato stapled his fingers together and spoke calmly. "As a new married couple you need your own space."

"There's plenty of room here why do we need to leave?"

"It's time you lived on your own," Minato said firmly.

"You're kicking me out?"

Us out, Sasuke corrected in his head. They're kicking us out.

Kushina sighed. "No of course not darling."

"Then why –"

"I'm pregnant."

Minato grimaced, although Naruto didn't notice since he stared at his mother as if she had grown a second head. Sasuke was the first to break the long silence that followed.

"Congratulations," he said softly.

"Thank you," Kushina said smiling.

Naruto sat in stunned silence.

"You two fight constantly." Minato said. "I will not have you causing her and the baby unnecessary stress."

"We've already found you a beautiful home," Kushina said cheerfully. "It's much closer to the city and it will be easier for work."

"Work," Naruto said suddenly getting up. "I have to go."

"Naruto," Minato started.

"I'll be back in two days," Naruto called over his shoulder. "Have the Uchiha move-in first."

Sasuke ignored Naruto's refusal to say his name and cleared his throat in order to get Kushina and Minato's attention. Now that the family melodrama was over he could finally speak.

"You should have probably told us this earlier," Sasuke said. "I suppose we really don't have a choice in moving. Ever since all this started it seems our lives have been dictated by the whims of adults." He stood and bowed his head slightly, his eyes giving away his agitation. "I'll go pack my things."

When Sasuke had disappeared into the house Kushina leaned back in her chair and sighed.

"How angry do you think they'll be when they figure out I'm not pregnant?"

"Well," Minato said a smile tugging on his face. "Hopefully by then they will be such good friends they will forgive us instantly."

"I hope your right."
