Naruto frowned into the phone, not sure if he had forgiven the person on the other end enough to talk civilly to them.

"What do you want, Anko?" Huh, guess not then.

"Don't hang up on me!" Anko's voice was quick and sudden. She was excited about something. "Just hear me out, Naruto!"

With a heavy sigh Naruto collapsed onto the bed, staring up at the ceiling. "Fine," he grumbled, "talk."

"I know you say you're happy," Anko began, ignoring the warning growl from Naruto, "but if you ever do want out of the marriage with the Uchiha, I know someone that will annul the marriage."

"It can't be annulled!" Naruto snapped, regretting his decision to not hang up on the woman, "and we're not gonna."

"I know, I know," Anko's voice was cautious. She didn't want to piss off her godson. "But if you ever do…"

"I'm not getting an annulment!" Naruto snarled into the phone. "I love Sasuke and we're going to stay married!"

Naruto hung up the phone before tossing it onto the bed. How fucking dare she even suggest such a thing! He was not going to annul his marriage! He loved Sasuke more than anything – wait…

Naruto's eyes widened as he stared up at the ceiling, the breath leaving his body. He loved Sasuke. He loved Sasuke.

A brilliant grin appeared on Naruto's face and he leapt to his feet, dashing for the door. He stumbled through the apartment until he found Sasuke; Sasuke was standing in the living room, a pair of work shoes in hand and dressed in a suit. Naruto slowed down, looking Sasuke over in confusion.

"Where are you going?" Naruto asked. Fear rushed through Naruto. What if Sasuke was sick of Naruto's non-commitment to their marriage? What is he was leaving?

"Work," Sasuke's calm voice broke through Naruto's inner rant. He looked up to see Sasuke sigh softly and run a hand through his hair. "Itachi called again," he explained. Naruto blinked, remembering the call Itachi had made to them yesterday that had cut off his almost-confession. "He knows it's my day off, and it's not urgent, but he'd like me to go in for a second."

"It's okay," Naruto mumbled as he looked down at his feet. Sasuke frowned, crossing to Naruto and tilting his head up. Naruto smiled softly up at Sasuke, meeting the fathomless black eyes filled with love.

"What's up?" Sasuke asked, curiosity filling his tone. Naruto's smile grew.

"It's nothing," Naruto's voice was rich with repressed emotions. "I'll see you later, alright?"

"Alright," Sasuke's tone was obviously suspicious. "I'll be back later, love."

Sasuke turned back to his shoes, but Naruto's hand darted out to catch Sasuke's. He pulled Sasuke around to face him, ignoring the surprised look on the Uchiha's face.

"Bye," Naruto whispered as he pushed a gentle kiss to Sasuke's lips. "I-I love you."

Sasuke froze; his eyes locked onto Naruto's blue ones. Naruto tilted his head slightly to the side, the smile on his face fading. His words rang through Sasuke's mind, over and over again.

Sasuke threw his shoes to the side, grabbing Naruto's face and pulling him forward. Naruto fell into Sasuke, who slammed his lips down on Naruto's. Sasuke's tongue was in Naruto's mouth in an instant, exploring and poking around. Naruto moaned softly against Sasuke, clutching him tightly like a lifeline. Sasuke's arms slid around Naruto as he pulled him closer, and they shared a kiss filled with lust, warmth, and love.

Naruto tore free, gasping heavily as Sasuke tasted his jaw line and neck. He tried to pull free of Sasuke's grip but Sasuke was not letting Naruto go anytime soon.

"Sa-Sasuke," Naruto panted. "You ha-have to go to wo-work."

Sasuke bit Naruto's neck with a soft growl. He lapped at the spot until a large hickey appeared. "I'll call in a sec." Naruto hated how Sasuke's voice was so calm. Little did he know, Sasuke's heart was racing a hundred miles an hour. Naruto pulled Sasuke's face back up to his as he dragged the Uchiha towards the couch.

They went down in a tangle of limbs, neither caring as they pushed their bodies closer, wanting complete physical contact. Naruto fisted Sasuke's hair furiously as Sasuke continued to ravish his mouth. Sasuke ground down on Naruto, smirking into the kiss at the moan, and then Naruto was bucking up against him.

"Nnn… Naruto," Sasuke panted. "I ha-have to call Itachi."

Naruto, not liking what was originally his own argument, simply flipped Sasuke over and attached himself to Sasuke's neck. He began to work at the tie around Sasuke's neck while Sasuke moaned softly. Once the tie was off Naruto continued down, his nimble fingers racing down the buttons quickly. Sasuke closed his eyes and decided he needed to call Itachi before things got out of control.

Sasuke snatched up the phone from the table next to the couch, scrolling down the contacts until he found Itachi, and tried to ignore the eager blond that was currently sucking at his stomach having already passed the neck and nipples.

Itachi answered after two rings, coincidentally at the same time that Naruto unbuttoned Sasuke's pants. "Sasuke? What is it?"

"Ngh, I uh, can't…" Sasuke glared down at Naruto who was reaching into his now unzipped pants. "Make it in!"

"Are you sure?" Sasuke could practically see the frown on Itachi's face. "It's not urgent, but it will be better with you here."

"Po-Positive!" Sasuke almost shouted as a wet tongue swiped over his member. "I ca-can't!"

"Well, if you're sure, little brother." Oh Sasuke was sure. As was the mouth that had just enveloped him. "May I ask why?"

"Ngh, oh God, Naruto," Sasuke forgot himself as he moaned into the phone. "Oh fuck…"

The silence on the other end of the phone was deafening. "I see…"

Almost screaming, Sasuke closed his eyes briefly as he allowed himself to revel in the pleasure of what Naruto was doing.

"Well, little brother," if Sasuke didn't know better, he would have sworn Itachi sounded amused, "I will inform father and Minato-san that you and Naruto are now at the 'honeymoon stage'. Next time, a simple text message will do. I didn't need to hear that."

Sasuke allowed the phone to slide from his fingers as the dial tone sounded. His hands instantly found purchase in Naruto's hair and he tugged the grinning man up.

"Dobe!" he hissed. "I was on the phone with my brother!"

"Yep," Naruto said as he wiped his mouth with his hand, "and yougot caught!"

"Shut up, usuratonkachi!" Sasuke snarled as he pushed Naruto back. "I'll make you pay for that."

"Oh?" Naruto's eyes were alight with mischief. "And what sort of punishment do you have in mind, Uchiha-sama?"

Sasuke smirked before snatching up his fallen tie. He quickly wrapped the silk material around Naruto's hands, binding them tightly together above his head. With that done, he scooped the pouting blond up, bridal style, and headed for their bedroom.

Naruto latched onto Sasuke's neck and decided to continue his imitation of a leech. Sasuke stumbled slightly before tossing Naruto onto the bed. He snatched up Naruto's tie from the day before – lying on the floor, damn it, dobe – before tying Naruto deftly to the headboard. Naruto's eyes shone with lust and anticipation as he tested the bonds. Satisfied, he smirked at Sasuke who raised his eyebrows.

"Well, Naruto," Sasuke's voice was pure honey, "you're in an interesting position, wouldn't you say?"

"Interesting," Naruto repeated, "is not the word I would use."

Sasuke chuckled before crossing to the bedside table. He reached in, pulling out a small sewing kit, and removing a pair of scissors.

Naruto's eyes narrowed as he looked at the shiny scissors. He looked back up at Sasuke whose smirk grew. Sasuke picked up the edge of Naruto's top before placing the scissors at the end.

Naruto shook his head. "No, teme," he warned, "don't even think abo…"


Sasuke's smirk grew as he cut Naruto's top off of his body. He ignored Naruto's shouts and glares as he removed the material. He moved down to the loose track pants, looking up at Naruto again.

"No!" Naruto shouted. "My feet aren't bound!"

"And?" That was the only warning Sasuke gave before he sliced through the pants quickly. He ignored Naruto's curses and death threats as he stripped Naruto until he was completely nude. Stepping back, he looked Naruto over and couldn't help but smirk sadistically. Naruto looked like a little golden fox, tied to a bed and about to be ravished by an amorous wolf that held him captive.

"Mmm, Naruto," Sasuke purred as he tugged his shirt off. "You're so beautiful."

"Shut up," Naruto growled as he looked to the side. His proudly standing erection gave away how much he was enjoying it though. Sasuke tugged his own pants and boxers off before crawling onto the bed, straight in between Naruto's spread legs. Naruto shuffled at the action, still pouting as he looked to the side.

Sasuke ran his hands delicately along Naruto's thighs, rubbing Naruto's hips softly. He leaned in, tasting the skin on Naruto's stomach before dipping his tongue into Naruto's navel. Naruto squeaked, looking down at Sasuke. Sasuke swirled his tongue around the crevice a moment more before withdrawing and continuing down. He swiped his tongue above Naruto's member before bypassing it for the firm thighs.

Sasuke suckled on the inside of Naruto's thigh, leaving a hickey. He made a couple more happily before looking up at the panting blond. Naruto glared down at him irritably.

"Get on with it!" he hissed. "I was never much for foreplay."

Agreeing completely, Sasuke nodded before licking a hickey once more and sitting back. He leaned over Naruto, reaching for the lube in the bedside table. Naruto took the opportunity to bite Sasuke's arm, smirking as Sasuke faltered. Sasuke sat back with the lube, setting it on the bed as he fiddled with something else. Naruto frowned.

"What's that?" he asked. Sasuke rolled his eyes.

"You fucking bastard! Don't you know what a condom is?" Sasuke mimicked in a whiny voice. "I believe those were your exact words, dobe."

"Yeah," Naruto said with a frown. "You didn't use one then – why would you now?"

Sasuke stared at Naruto before smirking. He tossed the square to the side before picking up the lube again. He quickly coated three of his fingers, lowering the first to Naruto's entrance. Naruto's breath hitched before he nodded. Sasuke added a second finger, revelling in the heat swallowing him up. Naruto let out a soft mewl as the third was added, and Sasuke worked faster as he prepared his dobe.

Removing his fingers hurriedly, Sasuke coated his erection quickly. Then positioned himself at Naruto's entrance he looked down at Naruto. "You're sure?" Sasuke's voice was low and deep. "There's no turning back once I've started."

"Yeah," Naruto replied instantly. "Now, bastard."

Sasuke pushed forward. A loud groan tore from him as he was swallowed up by incredible heat. He could dimly hear Naruto, either moaning or protesting, but Sasuke didn't care. He needed it. He needed to be taken in. He needed Naruto.

Once fully sheathed, Sasuke stopped. He looked down at Naruto whose face was screwed up in a mixture of pain and pleasure, the pleasure the more dominant.

"Damn," Naruto breathed, "give me a minute – don't move."

"Hell no," Sasuke said as he gripped Naruto's hips, "I'm moving."

Starting off slowly, Sasuke moved in and out of Naruto, ignoring his irritated glare and focusing on the mewls of pleasure that filled the room.

Soon Naruto was over his initial hesitation, spreading his legs further and practically begging for more.

Sasuke hooked Naruto's legs around his waist, reaching down to pump Naruto's member. Sasuke moved in harder and harder, smirking as he hit Naruto's prostate. He slammed the spot continually, relishing in the moans and shrieks Naruto released.

A slight glint drew his eyes to the wedding band Naruto was wearing, and his eyes automatically moved down to lock onto the Uchiha Symbol around Naruto's neck. His mark on Naruto drove Sasuke to move harder, the bed smacking against the wall loudly with the force of his thrusts.

Sasuke growled as they both moved closer and closer to their climaxes. Naruto was practically sobbing, much to Sasuke's satisfaction. He felt the familiar tightening of muscles and knew he was at his end. He was positive Naruto was too, going by the way Naruto was swearing.

"Fuck – gonna – S'ke – fuck!" Naruto's eyes closed before shooting open again. "SASUKE!"

As Naruto's muscles clamped down on him, Sasuke groaned and exploded inside Naruto. He thrust a few times as his hand stopped its pumping, before stilling completely. He pulled out of Naruto with a soft 'squish' before lowering himself next to Naruto shakily. Naruto was panting heavily as his eyes began to slide shut. Sasuke smirked before letting his own exhaustion creep up on him.

The last thing he felt was Naruto curling up against him, and his own arms automatically wrapping around Naruto.


Naruto was sore.

But it was a pleasant ache. He peeked his eyes open, looking around until his gaze fell onto the warmth next to him. Naruto studied Sasuke's face, patting the arms wrapped loosely around him, feeling a vague sense of déjà vu. However…

"Now," Naruto mumbled in a sleep-laden voice, "I can do this." Leaning in, Naruto tasted Sasuke's soft lips. After a moment Sasuke reacted, having woken up to the pleasant sensation.

"Hmm… dobe?" Sasuke's voice was still thick with sleep. "Eh?"

"I love you," Naruto whispered as he kissed Sasuke again. Sasuke's arms curled around him, pulling him down.

"Love you too," he muttered, "but sleep now, talk later."

Naruto couldn't agree more.

They had the rest of their lives to talk.

The rest of their married lives.


Sasuke froze as he passed Minato's office. Naruto was in there and he was yelling.

"Come on Dad!" Sasuke winced at the level of Naruto's voice. "Why him? Why do you need two Vice Presidents?"

He must have been whining about the upcoming company trip to Tanzaku City. Sasuke wasn't thrilled about it either.

"…only thinks of me as some sort of amusement," Naruto finished. "I mean he barely listens to me! He's such a jerk! He seriously needs to relax – he should get completely smashed, that'll fix him. Che, I bet the pretty boy's never even had a drink."

Sasuke rolled his eyes before leaving towards the elevator. Okay, so Naruto thought he was pretty, but he also thought he was a complete jerk. Maybe after they sealed the deal in Tanzaku City on the weekend Sasuke would take Naruto to the bar and show him that Sasuke was definitely no lightweight when it came to drinking. Alright, so he actually was, but he would deal with that. If it involved showing up the dobe then he would deal with it.

Smirking, Sasuke crossed to the elevator.

He'd show the dobe.


A/N: Ergo, this is all Sasuke's fault.
