I do not own Naruto. I know that. Yeesh.

"Hey Naruto! Are you ready to go yet!"

Naruto sat up in his bed and stretched. He could hear Kiba rummaging around in his living room.

"Naruto! I swear if you're not up I'll..." Kiba rammed through Naruto's door and stopped in his tracks. He smiled. "Okay, so you're awake. That's a start."

"Alright, just one more thing." Kiba shifted Naruto's collar, tightening his tie just right. Naruto shivered. He remembered when he use to kiss Gaara goodbye when he went to school. Then Gaara became a student then he broke his hea-

"Naruto? Hey!"

Naruto's head snapped up. Kiba's smile disappeared. He caressed Naruto's face in his hands, a sad look in his eyes. "It's not good to daydream like that Naruto." He took another long look at the blonde and smiled again. "Come on. School will start without us." Kiba took Naruto's hand and ran with him all the way to school.

"So, whose gonna be our new vocalist?" Sasuke leaned forward in his chair and nabbed some of Kiba's chips. The brunette glared at the raven haired boy.

"WELL..." The brunette turned his attention towards Naruto and smiled. "I figured we'd give Shikamaru Nara a chance, ya know? I mean he has to have some kind of talent hiding behind all that I don't give a fuck attitude, right? Heh." Kiba smirked as if he had just conquered the world.

Sasuke and Neji looked at each other, almost bored expressions on their faces. Neji stood up from his seat next to Sasuke, walked to the other side of the desks, punched Kiba in his arm, went back around the desks and sat back down. Kiba sucked in his breath and rubbed his arm.

"Ouch. Tss. You son of a gun...that actually hurt!" Naruto punched him too. Kiba yelped that time. He looked at Naruto like he was a wounded puppy.

"I agree. It's not a bad idea." Naruto smiled. Kiba's expression turned into shock.

"Wait! If you agree with me then why did you punch me!" Kiba groaned at Naruto. Naruto took a sip of his juice.

"Cuz I can."

"Yeah. I don't see why not." Shikamaru shrugged.

"Wah? Ah. Really? Seriously? You'll do it?" Naruto was in disbelief. The pineapple haired boy rolled his eyes.


"Wait. Can you even sing?" Sasuke leaned on the window sill of their classroom as he stared at Shikamaru.

"I dunno. I guess?" Shikamaru yawned. This time, Sasuke rolled his eyes.

"Hey, well practice is at 7 so we'll find out then, right Sasuke?" Naruto grinned. Sasuke shrugged and left the classroom. "Thanks Shikamaru." Naruto patted Shikamaru's shoulder as he followed Sasuke.

"Yeah, whatever." The pineapple haired boy laid his head back down on his desk, resuming his scheduled nap.

Sasuke and Neji stared at Shikamaru in disbelief.

"Is that good enough?" Shikamaru looked around the band's place, looking for who knows what.

"That. Was. Fantastic." Naruto said, his mouth wide open. Kiba jumped up and put an arm around Shikamaru, a huge smirk on his face.

"I should be a talent scout! Look! He's amazing!" The brunette raised Shikamaru's hand in the air like Shikamaru had just won a boxing tournament.

Neji shrugged as he tuned his bass. Sasuke dug a piece of gum out his packet, gave Kiba a thumbs up, and began tuning his guitar with Neji.

"I'll give you credit. Shikamaru is very talented." Naruto genuinely smiled at Kiba. The brunette blushed and sat back down quickly, trying to hide his face.

Suddenly, there was a thud on the ceiling.

"What is that? Hail?" Sasuke put his guitar in a corner and began packing his stuff. Neji did the same, not wanting to be left with the other band mates.

"Probably. Better get home before it gets worse and somebody gets a concussion." Neji slid on his book bag as he spoke.

"See ya." Sasuke waved as he and Neji left.

"I guess I'll get going then. Uh, just let me know when we have, what, practice?" Shikamaru shrugged as he followed the other two out.

Kiba looked at Naruto and smiled, the blush still on his face.

"I guess I'll take you home then."

"What? You think I can't take care of myself?" Naruto pouted playfully. He still flinched when he stood up but he pretended it didn't hurt.

"Ah! No! It's...it's not that. I just...I was..." Kiba began to fluster. Naruto laughed.

"I'm just kidding. Relax Kiba!" Naruto set his guitar near Sasuke's and pulled Kiba behind his as he locked the door to their place.

The two walked in silence, small smiles on both their faces. Kiba stopped walking for a moment. Naruto turned around, confused.

"Kiba? What's wrong?"

The brunette looked up at Naruto.

"Uh...Naruto, you know that festival that's coming up? Do you want...would you like to go with me?" Kiba began to kick the pebbles under his shoes in nervousness.

Naruto smiled. "Sure. Why not?"

Kiba brightened as he caught up with Naruto and they began walking again.

"See ya!" Kiba waved. Naruto waved back as he closed his front door. As soon as he locked it, "What's this? Were you and the Inuzuka kid on a date?" Naruto froze up. He suddenly began to shake as he turned around to see the emerald green eyes he'd recently begun to fear.

"I don't see how it's any of your business." Naruto gritted his teeth. The redhead grinned a very malicious grin.

"Of course it's my business Naruto. We're destined to be together and anyone who would dare to come between us is sure to die."

Naruto panicked as Gaara reached out and hugged the blonde. "Come on. Let's go have some fun." Naruto tried to fight his way out of Gaara's grip but it was futile. It was going to happen whether he wanted it to or not.

Naruto breathed heavily on top of Gaara. The vampire groaned, stood up and pulled on a pair of boxers. "I'll be right back. Don't you move." Gaara glared at the blonde to make sure he knew that he meant what he said.

Once Gaara had left Naruto reached over to the nightstand where his cell phone had been buzzing for the past hour. Who was it of course but Kiba texting him.
