A/N: I fixed the whole Gaara/Sasori scene by making it longer, and adding some stuff, such as making the actual result of the battle ambiguous. What is Gaara's ultimate fate in this fic? So, check it out before reading this chapter, okay?

Also, until I get really interested in working on this fic again, this is as far as it's going to go for now. I'll eventually finish up this chapter fully by adding everything else, but at this time I'm just not in the mood.


Once Kiba regained consciousness and finished screaming at Rock Lee, the training session was finally able to start.

"But it did make me stronger! Remember when I punched you?" Rock Lee shot back.

"Ugh...don't remind me..."

Kiba gasped so loud he swallowed a fly, and then he screamed, "OH GOD, ANYTHING BUT THAT! I AM NOT GETTING NAKED IN FRONT OF YOU TWO! THIS IS WORSE THAN WHEN I FOUND OUT ABOUT FUTANARI! ...Then again, I did jerk off to it, so it wasn't all THAT bad..."

"Hell, yeah! You always have the best ideas, Gai-sensei!"
