COP OUT

Prologue

"What am I going to do with you?" The Inspector asked the young blonde across the table. The blonde had the most brilliant blue eyes that still managed to sparkle with cheekiness as well as un-interest despite supporting a black eye.

"You don't have to do anything – you could just let me go and then we'll be fine".

"You know I can't do that – I've already made plenty of exceptions for you as it is", the Inspector sighed. He flicked his long white hair out of his face and stared at the young blonde before him. The blonde looked right in to his wrinkled face and grinned.

"Well then just make another – one more ain't gonna kill you", the blonde stated unemotionally. He stared curiously at the Inspector before smirking. "Hey, Jiraiya, wasn't it supposed to be your weekend off?"

"We are NOT on first name terms so don't call me that and how did you get my name anyway?"

"Are you seriously as stupid as you look? I've been here enough times to get to know at least half the staff that work here".

"Well, don't and no, this wasn't supposed to be my weekend off at all; I know I'm always going to have to deal with you so I'll never get any peace".

"You could just get someone else to take me off you if you're that annoyed about it", the blonde placed his hands on the back of head and leaned back on his wooden chair. He smirked slightly at the Inspector who was starting to get slightly annoyed at him. He decided to take a different approach.

"Listen, Naruto, I know you have had a tough time but please understand that you can't keep getting in trouble because of it. And as we are speaking about this I would like to point out... – are you even listening to me?!" The Inspector was getting very annoyed as he turned around to see Naruto dozing on his chair slightly.

"You know what? I give up, I'm handing you over to someone who I know will keep you in line". Jiraiya got up and exited the small interrogation room, and stood next to the man who waited on the other side of the one-way glass.

"You are seriously not going to hand him over to me are you?" the man asked, staring at the blonde who sat in the room. Naruto had gotten up and started walking around, kicking his heels and whistling. It just infuriated him that he was always so relaxed every time he was arrested.

"Why not? You were the one who began to take an interest in him".

"You know we don't get on that well". Not getting on well was an understatement.

"Well, it's up to you to make sure that he's kept out of trouble. One more time I let him off and I'll probably get fired", the Inspector turned looked at Naruto before turning to look at his colleague.

"So you're going to try and get us both in prison instead?"

"Uchiha, just see it as your greatest challenge – and you are going to do it. You are now in charge of the blonde. Help him pack his bags; he's going to live with you".

"WHAT?!"
