I don't own Naruto, and no profit is being made off of this.

"What do you –" Sai pauses, as if searching for the words. "– see in him?"

It is a genuine question, asked out of curiosity and without the slightest hint of malice. It still annoys the hell out of Karin.

"I don't know," she says airily, and kisses him. Since she is currently sitting in his lap, it takes a bit of manoeuvring, but Sai does not mind.

"What do you see in me?" he queries a few minutes later, as she is knocking back a drink. Karin almost chokes. After he helps her get the liquid down, she looks at him with new, yet dull eyes.

"Him," she says shortly, and pours herself another drink.

He nods seriously, as if he completely understands.
