An Older Brother's Advice
The beating of rapid footsteps was faintly heard throughout the quiet neighborhood. Each step made a loud slap as it hit the pavement.
A date! Sasuke screamed in his mind.
What did Naruto mean by a date? And why did he kiss me on the cheek?
Sasuke slowed down his pace and came to a halt.
He rested a hand on his cheek.
His lips were so soft and warm...
A sigh escaped his lips before he could stop it.
Damn you, Uzumaki! Why did you do this to me? he thought. He didn't sound as angry as he had hoped.
He shook his head and continued his journey home.
"I'm home," Sasuke mumbled as he entered his lovely home.
If anyone were to enter the Uchiha household, they would be amazed at how huge it was. The massive house had ten bedrooms, five bathrooms, three dining rooms, a large kitchen, living room, swimming pool, and game room.
But to Sasuke, it was just home. There was nothing really special about it to him.
When Sasuke headed to the kitchen for a snack, he ran into his older brother, Itachi Uchiha.
There he was, leaning on the kitchen counter with his long, silky, raven-black hair. Today, it was out of its usual ponytail. Itachi was only in his black boxers. The lack of clothing showed off his muscles and eight-pack.
Sasuke rolled his eyes the moment he saw his older brother.
"Didn't Mom and Dad tell you to stop walking around the house half-naked?" Sasuke asked him.
Itachi only smirked when he saw Sasuke. "This may be true, my dear otouto, but as you can see, Mother and Father are not here. They left for Hawaii to celebrate their thirtieth anniversary, remember?"
"Yeah, yeah," Sasuke replied. He put his bag down on the kitchen table.
"Yes. They'll celebrate their undying love on their anniversary," Itachi continued. "I wonder if they'll start with a shot of liquor and get drunk." His smirk never left his face.
Sasuke's eye twitched at the thought of his parents being drunk.
"Shut up, Itachi."
Itachi chuckled. "It could happen, Sasuke. We may never know."
He ignored Itachi and removed a few binders from his bag. Sasuke was startled when his older brother spoke again.
"So what took you so long to arrive? Was the bus that late?"
"No," he answered flatly. "I decided to walk home."
Itachi raised an eyebrow. "You do realize how long it takes to walk home, right?"
"I know," Sasuke sighed. "I just needed some time to think."
Sasuke took in a deep breath. "I was trying to figure out why Naruto kissed me on the cheek and asked me on a date."
The older Uchiha looked surprised for a second, but he quickly changed it to a smirk. "I didn't know that you and Naruto were dating," he said. "It's not that much of a shock, though. You did call Naruto yours when you two were little. You said that Naruto belonged to you, and that no one was allowed to touch him," he teased.
A blush appeared on Sasuke's face.
"Shut it, Itachi! Kushina and Mom said the you did the same thing with Kyuubi!"
Something in Itachi changed. He didn't look amused anymore, and his eyes radiated with rage.
"You might want to keep that mouth of yours shut, Sasuke. It could lead you into deep trouble," Itachi growled.
The two brothers glared at one another.
After a few minutes, their glaring contest ended: Itachi had surrendered with a sigh. Sasuke smirked in triumph.
"So you and Naruto are dating, then?" Itachi inquired.
Sasuke breathed in and exhaled.
The two remained silent for a while.
"But..." Sasuke continued, "I think I want to."
"What?" Itachi asked.
Sasuke shivered. "I think... I want to," Sasuke repeated.
Before Sasuke could turn around, Itachi grabbed him and pulled him close.
"Is that true?" the older one sneered. "Do you want to be with him so much that he has you shaking?" Do you want to feel that soft, tan skin under your fingers? Do you want him gasping for breath while he's begging you to-"
"Shut your perverted mouth, Itachi!" Sasuke shouted. He pushed Itachi off of him in disgust.
"You know it's true," Itachi cooed. He poked Sasuke's cheek.
Sasuke smacked his hand away. "Fuck off, Itachi," he growled.
Sasuke could do nothing but glare at the person he called his brother.
"… You should tell him."
Sasuke's eyes widened.
"Must I repeat it to you, otouto? I said, 'You should tell him.'"
A dark shade of red appeared on Sasuke's face. "A-and why do you say that?"
Itachi loved to make his younger brother squirm. (A/N: Not like that, you perverts! ^^) "You should already know the answer to that question," he chuckled. "It's only a matter of time before a person gives up on the one they love."
Itachi patted his younger brother on the head before walking away. Sasuke was left stunned.
"Don't screw up your date!" Itachi's voice echoed throughout the house.
"It's not a date!"
"Okay! You want to look presentable for your date, so big brother Kyuubi is going to make you look fabulous!"
"I don't want to be a cross-dresser, Kyuubi! And it's not a date!"
"Then why did you tell him it was a date and give him a peck on the cheek?" Kyuubi puckered up his lips and made a loud smacking sound.
"It was in the heat of the moment," Naruto said sheepishly.
Kyuubi stood there for a few moments as still as a rock before he sighed. "That's bullshit, and you know it." Kyuubi made his way to his younger brother and sat next to him on the plush bed. "Just admit that it's a date. I know you just want to get close to him, steal him away, and keep him all to yourself."
Naruto snapped his head around. "That's not true!" he exclaimed.
Kyuubi raised his eyebrows at Naruto's outburst.
"If I were to steal Sasuke away, I would put him in a cage and keep him there!" he continued.
Naruto's statement caused a silence to form around the two siblings. The silence was eventually broken by the sound of laughter.
"You're an idiot," Kyuubi chuckled.
"Like you should be the one talking!"
The laughter soon died down, and the two brothers were left in a comfortable silence.
"Hey, Kyuubi," Naruto whispered.
A smile graced the young blond's face. He looked happy and determined. "I'm gonna win his ice-cold heart."
A smirk easily made its way to the older red head's face. "I know you will, Kit. I know you will."
The brothers enveloped each other in a hug, and the two hoped that the events to take place wouldn't turn out as a complete failure.
"Now enough of all that." Kyuubi laughed. "Let's make you look beautiful for your date!" He winked at his younger brother.
Naruto groaned. "But I don't want to look like a tranny," he whined.
"For the last time, I only dressed like that because lost a bet to a friend. Now shut up and let me fix your hair."
