Konan woke up at sunrise, due to the fact that Pein hadn't bothered to shut the blinds in their bedroom before going to bed the previous night. Needless to say, the room was flooded with sunlight, and of course it shined right in Konan's face.

The blue haired woman sat up and stretched, yawning. She got up and shut the blinds; no need to wake her grouchy boyfriend just yet.

She pulled on a blouse and skirt, before walking into the kitchen. She opened the fridge and pulled out the last of the leftovers; they'd need to get more pancake mix and ramen later today.

As she began reheating the leftovers, she heard a loud yawn and smiled. Pein must be getting up.

Sure enough, a man with messy auburn hair walked in, grumbling. "When the hell did they decide mornings had to start so god damn early?"

Konan grinned. "It sounds like Hidan's rubbing off on you."

"Speaking of which, where's the little psycho? He and Deidara are usually robbing the fridge by now."

She shook her head. "What would you do without me? Check out the calendar; today's the first day of school, genius."

"Well, that explains it." He sighed and shook his head. "Those poor teachers. Five bucks says the school isn't standing by the end of the day."

"You're on."

Sasori pulled up to Deidara's house and sat in his car, waiting. Approximately two minutes later, a perky blonde dashed out, grinning widely. "HI DANNA!" he yelled as he climbed into the car.

"You're late, brat."

Deidara began to pout. "Don't call me that, un."

"You better get used to it; everyone says you're gonna have to fill in for Tobi while he and Zetsu are gone."

"Oh yeah, they're not gonna be there today, are they, un?" Deidara smirked. "Peace at last, un!"

Sasori raised a brow. "I don't think there's gonna be much of that as long as you're in that outfit." He couldn't help looking the blonde up and down. Deidara was in a girl's uniform.

The sculptor smirked. "It's a pervert detector, un! We can find out what kind of teachers we got stuck with this year, un."

"Is that the only reason?"

Deidara smiled coyly. "Maybe I'm hoping you'll finally fall for me if I look like this, un."

"Down girl."

"HEY!"

"You implied it, not me."

"Gooooooooooooooood morning all! This is Bob and Tom in the morning, here to-" the radio announcer was abruptly cut off by Kisame slamming his fist down on the off button. The shark sighed happily as he rolled back over, hoping for sleep. "Get up, Kisame." Apparently his snoozing was done.

"Itachi, noooooooooo!" he whined, pulling the Uchiha close to him.

"I would be glad to let you sleep more, but I need to get up, and am currently trapped under you."

Kisame groaned and sat up, freeing his partner. Itachi stretched, then suddenly stopped moving. He leaned towards Kisame and sniffed. "Kisame, you need a bath."

"I hate showering in the morning."

"Too bad. You stink, and you're not leaving the house until you take a bath."

Kisame grinned. "That doesn't sound too bad."

Itachi rolled his eyes; he knew how much the shark disliked school. "Let me rephrase that. I refuse to have sex with anyone who stinks as much as you do. BATHE!"

"Only if you get in with me."

"………………Fine."

BEEP BEEP BEEP

Kakuzu groaned and shut off his alarm. Damn thing was annoying, but it had only cost him four bucks, so he wasn't complaining.

He got up and sighed, digging a uniform out of his closet. Great, he had to start at his new high school today. It really wouldn't have been so bad, if it weren't for the fact that this place had to have the ugliest uniforms (lime green and an off-white that reminded him of sour milk) in the entire city. Oh, and let's not forget that he didn't know a single person in the whole town, much less at this school.

He rolled his eyes. Still, he couldn't complain. After all the annoying relatives, lost friends, and sneaky counselors, this new town was a welcome change. He grabbed his backpack and, after making sure his checkbook was safely hidden away, walked out the door.

Konoha High School loomed over the students like a colossal beast, waiting to devour the incoming freshmen and any others who couldn't survive high school life. Sasori and Deidara were staring up at the building, smirking knowingly. "Danna, we're seniors now, un."

"Thanks for stating the obvious, blondie." They turned and saw Kisame and Itachi approach. "What's up?" the shark asked.

"Deidara's simply trying to get his mind to wrap around the concept that he's a senior," Sasori explained.

Deidara grinned widely. "We're gonna rule this school, un."

Itachi nodded. "Too bad Zetsu and Tobi aren't here to enjoy this moment."

"I wonder where they are right now…"

--Konoha International Airport--

"Flight 19-A leaving in twenty minutes."

"That's us, Zetsu!" Tobi called happily.

"I know that Tobi. Damn brat. Let's go. And kill Tobi. No, Tobi's a good boy." Zetsu looked over at his empty-handed friend. "Tobi, where's your bag?"

"What bag?"

Silence

"You mean your suitcase isn't here?!"

"Nope."

"I told you to pack a bag!"

"I did."

"I told you to put it by the doorway!"

"I did."

"But you didn't grab it?!"

"You didn't tell me to, Zetsu. And Tobi always does what he's told, because he's a good boy."

Both halves of Zetsu were struggling not to kill the boy. "Flight 19-A leaves in fifteen minutes." The schizophrenic man began thinking. "Tobi, I'm gonna get your bag. Stall the flight!" and with that he dashed out of the airport.

Tobi stood there for a moment, thinking. Suddenly, he thought of something he saw on TV. He took a deep breath and yelled, "OH MY GOD, A BOMB!!"

"Well, can't worry about them for long," Kisame said. He looked around. "Hey, where's our favorite zealot?"

"Right here, dumbasses!" Hidan walked up to the group, shirt half unbuttoned, his Jashinist rosary in plain sight. "Looks like everyone's here." He turned to the school and grinning. "Ready to give them hell?"

The group nodded and walked toward the building.
