[Kakashi/Sakura, Naruto, Sasuke, G]

Sakura glared up at Kakashi, biting the inside of her cheek as she fought to keep her anger from boiling over and pouring out in harsh words and brutal fists. Despite the fresh scar on her stomach and all the blood dried on her skin and clothes, he didn't appear sympathetic in the least. In fact, Kakashi was sighing, pinching the bridge of his nose, and generally acting like he was dealing with an obnoxious child instead of the dangerous, albeit bloodied, kunoichi in front of him.

"I told you not to go out without back up. I told you this would happen. You're lucky you're a medic or else you'd have bled to death by now. Why do you never listen to me, Sakura?" he scolded sternly. Sakura felt like she was twelve again, disappointing her sensei instead of her mission leader, which irritated her all the more.

"BECAUSE YOU'RE AN IGNORANT GIT," she hollered loudly, not at all caring that she had probably let every ninja within five miles know where their team was. She let out a frustrated cry before stomping on Kakashi's foot, spinning around and storming off hard enough to leave footprints in the solid earth.

As Kakashi nursed his foot, he stared after her, absently wondering aloud, "... Typical. I express my concern for her well-being, and she explodes and does her best to cause me bodily harm."

Naruto and Sasuke, who had been sitting off to the side watching in bemusement, both snorted. "You really are an ignorant git," Naruto pointed out. "Even I can tell what's going on."

"When this dobe knows before you, you really are oblivious," Sasuke nodded. When Kakashi managed to tear his eyes from Sakura's retreating form, he turned his head to regard them with an eerily calm expression -- which was really just an eye and an eyebrow, making it even more eerie. Before they could retreat, he had a hand on each of their shoulders, gripping tight enough to elicit a wince from Naruto and a grimace from Sasuke.

"Please. Do enlighten me," he smiled tightly from behind his mask. Naruto chuckled nervously while Sasuke rolled his eyes.
