100 Themes Challenge

Theme 1: Introduction

"I've got a feeling," Hinata said to her cousin/big brother figure Neji as they walked into Konoha Gakuen, "that this is going to be a good year."

Neji looked at his little cousin sideways, "A good year, huh?"

"Yes, a good year," she affirmed as they stopped in front of classroom 2-C, Hinata's homeroom.

"Hey, Hinata-chan!" Naruto, Hinata's life-long crush called from inside the classroom, "Looks like we're in the same class again!"

Blushing, Hinata turned to Neji, "Yes. A good, good year."

"Alright, class, settle down," the teacher said, writing his name on the chalkboard. "My name is Hatake Kakashi—that's sensei to you—and I'll be your homeroom and chemistry teacher this year. Any questions so far?"

Naruto stuck his hand up in the air and waved it around. "Kakashi-sensei, why are you wearing a surgical mask?"

"Because I like the fashion statement," he deadpanned. Hearing a knock on the door Kakashi said, "Ah, he's arrived." He turned towards the students. "Class, this year we will have a foreign exchange student with us. His name is Uchiha Sasuke, and he's living with Uzumaki Naruto. I expect you to make him feel welcome and all that."

With that, the teacher opened the door and let the new student in.

The girls gasped.

The exchange student was beautiful. He had thick dark hair and fair skin most girls would kill for. Even under the school uniform you could tell he was in good shape and his high cheekbones gave the impression that he was same sort of royalty.

Ignoring the gushing of the female students Kakashi asked the boy, "Uchiha-kun, could you please tell us a bit about yourself?"

Sasuke glared at Kakashi then said tersely, "My name is Uchiha Sasuke. I'm 17. I'm from America."

"Tell them where in America, Sasuke!" Naruto called out.

"…I'm from Louisville, Kentucky," Sasuke turned his glare to the blonde.

"Like Kentucky Fried Chicken!" Naruto exclaimed. "That's what I'll call you—Chicken! Your hair look's like a chicken's butt, too!"

"Alright, Naruto, that's enough," Kakashi interrupted. "Uchiha-kun, there's a seat next to Hyuuga Hinata. Hyuuga-chan, please raise your hand."

Hinata complied and even managed a smile at the gorgeous boy.

He just glared at her.

Hinata shuddered under his gaze and tried to hide it by grabbing a notebook from her bag.

As she pulled the notebook out of the bag something flew to the floor and rolled to Sasuke's feet. Hinata blushed dark red and stared at the object—it was a tampon. How am I going to get that back without Uchiha-san noticing?

As if hearing her thoughts Sasuke looked at the blushing girl, then followed her gaze down to his feet.

He picked up the tampon but said nothing; he just smirked at the girl.

"Hey, whatcha got there, Sasuke?" Naruto asked as he suddenly poked his head over Sasuke's shoulder. "It's a tampon!" Naruto yelled, much to Sasuke's chagrin and to Hinata's mortification. "The Chicken's got a tampon!"

"It's not mine," Sasuke said.

Oh, no, Hinata thought, please don't tell him—

"It's hers," Sasuke pointed at Hinata as the entire class started laughing.

Oh, yes, it was going to be a good, good year.

Because chicken butts look like duck butts.

this was originally gonna be a collection of 100 one-shots set in the same AUniverse but it turned into more of a chaptered fic. to which i said "ahhh not another one!" because i am a one-trick pony and can only write one-shots well. by the way, this is not in the konoha shippu gakuen den universe because i have not seen that.

why is sasuke from kentucky? well, that's because I'M from kentucky and i wanted to give KY a little lovin'. that and the "chicken" nickname just came naturally then. consider "chicken" the "teme" of my story.

sasuhina, as usual, but with other couples thrown in there, we'll see how it goes.
