Woot! Update, after such a long time… I've had epic writers block, sorry. Anyway. Here's the next chapter!

No, I do not own Naruto, and I don't know who does, either.

"Um… Sakura…" Naruto was at a loss for words. He expected her to scream, cry. Hell, even knock his lights out. Never, never did he expect her to ask to see the tattoo! He stood there for a few minutes scratching his head.

"No, Sakura. You cannot see his tattoo," Sasuke answered her. Naruto let out a breath of relief. Now there was only the task of running away before Sakura blew up. He nudged Sasuke, trying to warn him. Sasuke glanced over at Naruto, confused. Naruto widened his eyes at the other man. It was time to leave, now.

"But… but… I want to see the tattoo! I want proof that Naruto belongs to my Sasuke-kun!" she screamed. Attracting the attention of surrounding nin, of course. Murmurs ran through the crowd.

"Naruto belonging to Sasuke?"

"A tattoo? Where?"

"Sakura's Sasuke? When did that happen?"

There was one whisper that stood out to Naruto:

"Are they gay?"

Great. Now Naruto would have to deal with homophobia along with the whole fox-demon thing. He shot daggers with his eyes, directed at Sakura. He'd kill her! He'd murder her! He'd-

"Hey! Mumbling idiots!" Sasuke yelled, "I am not gay! And even if I was, I would find someone much better that Naruto." Sasuke gasped as he realized what he had said. He turned to Naruto. "Naruto, wait. I didn't mean it. I-"

"Don't bother. Thanks for letting me know the truth. That I'll never be good enough for you, in anything. Goodbye, Sasuke." Naruto turned and walked through the crowd.

Aw, that was kinda sad… eh, I'm dealing with my own sadness, so I guess I can see where it came from. So, please review and tell me what you thought!
