Temari heard the footsteps before the knock.

"Shikamaru!" she whispered. "There's someone outside for you."

"What?" he asked sleepily. "You want me to come inside you? Didn't we do that enough yesterday?"

"You're still asleep," Temari groaned.

She wrapped a sheet around herself since she didn't have time to find her clothes and went to answer the door. To her dismay, it was Ino.

"Engaging in some late night play Temari-chan?" Ino asked innocently, not at all surprised.

"It's more like work with that boy," Temari replied nonchalantly. "You just think he's lazy."
