Kabuto smiled at Naruto as he handed Naruto a plate. He sat across from the Genin and they both silently started to eat their dinner. It stayed like that for awhile before Naruto asked something.

"Why do you always smile?"

Kabuto looked up. Once again, he smiled. "What do you mean?"

"Every time I see you, you're always smiling. Why?"

"I like to smile. So what? Is that a crime?"

"But it's not a real smile."

"Yes, it--"

"No, it's not. I can tell it's fake."

Kabuto smiled once more. But it was sad. "The only real smiles I give out are to my friends. Are you saying that I'm not your friend?"


Kabuto's answer meant that if his smile was fake, then did that mean he wasn't Naruto's friend?
