DISCALIMER: Naruto isn't mine.
Sharringan Games, a video game company owned by Uchiha Corps. The best and hottest gaming company in the country. Uzumaki Naruto was one of the top game designers in the company. He had started as an assistant with his best friend. He had gotten tired of coloring and drafting and pitched some of his ideas to the designer. Once the boss heard Naruto's ideas, Naruto was quickly promoted.
"Uzumaki." Itachi called. Naruto perked up.
"Uchiha-san. Good morning." He smiled brightly running his fingers through his messy hair to make it less messy. "Good morning, sir." Itachi smiled a bit.
"You said good morning twice, Uzumaki." He said. Naruto blushed.
"Did I? I'm sorry. How are you this morning, Uchiha-san?" He smiled.
"I'm doing very well, Uzumaki. And yourself?" Itachi asked warmly.
"I-I am wonderful right now." Naruto blushed.
"That's good. Keep up the good work, Uzumaki." Itachi nodded as he left. Naruto smiled idiotically.
"Yeah, you too." He laughed and waved.
"Oh please." Kiba scoffed from the other side of their cubicle.
"What?" Naruto asked looking over his shoulder at the brunette. Kiba was hunched over his drafting table, coloring designs for their latest game idea.
"I don't even need to look up to know you're drooling all over yourself. You're probably coming in your pants because Itachi spoke to you." Kiba scoffed.
"There's no reason for you to be so crude, Kiba." Naruto bristled. Kiba laughed.
"You're just a prude." He laughed as he turned to face his friend.
"I'm not a prude." Naruto huffed. Kiba laughed again.
"Whatever, I know what you are." He rolled his eyes.
"Be quiet, Kiba. Stop making fun of me." The blonde pouted.
"How cute, you're pouting now." Kiba smirked.
"Hey, get to work. We are not paying you to sit around all day." Sasuke snapped at them. Naruto growled under his breath. Sasuke scoffed and walked away.
"Why does he have to be such a jerk all the time?" Naruto grumbled as he sat down.
"Don't say that, he's your future brother in law." Kiba smirked. Naruto shivered.
"Don't remind me. It's so sad that those two are related." He sighed. Kiba laughed.
"Whatever, we should get back to work before he comes back to bitch at us." He said as he turned back to his drawings. Naruto sighed and sat down at his drafting table and pulled out the illustrations he had been working on for the past week. He and Kiba had been collaborating on a game, Kiba was in charge of creating the characters and Naruto did the scenery.
"Hey, for the palace, do we want everything gold and red like Prince Ari's costume?" Naruto asked.
"Yeah, but throw some greens, blues and purple for accents." Kiba nodded.
"Do you think adding green would clash with the garden?" Naruto asked.
"Maybe a little." Kiba nodded. Naruto pulled out his watercolor pens and began coloring the illustrations. "Hey, how does Jane look?" Kiba asked showing his partner a drawing of a little girl. She had blonde hair in braided pigtails, huge green eyes, and a light pink sundress on; she was a rich little girl who didn't really have any point other than to be cute.
"She needs a teddy bear or something." Naruto said.
"Yeah, yeah. A brown teddy with a big yellow bow." Kiba nodded as he turned back to his table to draw in the bear. Their day progressed like that, Naruto asked Kiba about color schemes that wouldn't clash with the characters and Kiba asked for minor additions to the characters. They had designed many games together and knew how to work together. They had been working all morning and Naruto glanced at his watch and seeing that it was past noon.
"Hey, lunch." Naruto said, hitting Kiba's shoulder. Kiba put his pens down and rubbed his eyes.
"I'm starved." He said as he stood up and stretched his arms and back. "We got pretty far. We could have the sketches done before the end of the day." He observed, looking at the combined work on their desks.
"Yeah. Maybe we can pitch it to Itachi tomorrow." Naruto smiled excitedly. Kiba rolled his eyes. "Don't make fun of me." Naruto pouted. Kiba laughed and wrapped his arm around his blonde friend's shoulders.
"I'm sorry, I'm sorry." He smiled. "Come on, where should we go for lunch? I don't feel like cafeteria food."
"Ichiraku's." Naruto answered quickly and easily. The other man laughed again.
"I don't even know why I bothered asking you. Ichiraku's it is." He smiled and led the blonde away. They met Itachi in the elevator.
"Uzumaki, Inuzuka, going out for lunch?" Itachi asked.
"Yes we are, Uchiha-san." Naruto smiled brightly. Kiba rolled his eyes. "You're on your way to lunch as well?" He asked.
"Yes, unfortunately I have a lunch meeting with Uchiha Corps." Itachi sighed and smiled tiredly.
"You make that sound like a bad thing." Naruto smiled. Itachi laughed softly.
"I have better things to be doing than eating with my father. But, I can't argue with the boss, right?" He smiled. Naruto laughed and nodded.
"Exactly. But I'm sure he'll just tell you how great of a job you are doing running Sharringan Games, Uchiha-san." Naruto smiled. Kiba snorted.
"Thank you very much, Uzumaki." Itachi smiled. The elevator reached the bottom floor by that point and the doors dinged.
"Where have you been? The car has been waiting for nearly three minutes." Sasuke snapped as soon as the doors opened.
"My apologies, little brother, I had an important call." Itachi apologized. He turned to Naruto and Kiba and nodded at them before he left.
"Oh, Uchiha-san." Naruto called.
"Tsk, what do you want, dobe." Sasuke scoffed. Naruto glared at Sasuke and then looked at Itachi.
"Uchiha-san, Kiba and I should be finished with the illustrations for our new game idea by the end of the day. Would tomorrow be a good time for you to go over them?" He asked with a hopeful smiled. Itachi smiled and nodded.
"Of course, come by my office any time tomorrow morning and we can look over them. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a meeting to get to." He smiled and left.
"Tsk." Sasuke rolled his eyes as he passed Naruto to follow his brother.
"I really dislike that guy." Naruto huffed. Kiba laughed.
"Yeah, he doesn't seem to like you very much either." He smiled. Naruto glared at him. "Sasuke's an ass anyway, so don't feel too bad. I mean who really wants to be friend with a bastard like that guy?" Kiba scoffed as they left the building. They walked the few blocks to Ichiraku's and sat at the bar. Naruto motioned for the owner to make them two bowls.
"So, I had this idea for the train section of the game. I think that instead of trains with the passenger seats out there and the one aisle, you know, we should do like those trains with the individual boxes. I mean it would make more sense for a huge sword fight to happen on a crowded train if the passengers aren't in the way." Naruto explained.
"Yeah, yeah. That sounds good." Kiba nodded.
"Are you two designing another game?" Ichiraku asked as he set their ramen in front of them.
"We're trying." Naruto nodded.
"You two always make great games. The kids who come here are always talking about your games." He smiled. Naruto and Kiba laughed.
"Really? That's great." Kiba beamed.
"Yeah, it's always cool when we hear about people loving out work, because we're just doing what we love." Naruto smiled.
"Well, just keep what you're doing." The old man smiled and went off to help some new customers. The two designers quickly finished their food and headed back for their office.
"Man I'm stuffed. Ichiraku makes the best ramen around." Naruto smiled happily as he sat down at his table.
"You two went to Ichiraku's again?" Sakura asked, leaning on the cubicle wall.
"Yeah." Kiba nodded.
"You're gonna get fat, you know." She sighed.
"I doubt it. Blondie can eat lard soaked in grease and covered in sugar and still not gain a pound." Kiba laughed.
"And what about you?" The pink haired woman looked at him.
"I work out every day." Kiba smirked.
"He does." Naruto nodded, remembering the few rigorous work outs he had joined.
"And you don't?" Sakura asked looking at the blonde. Naruto laughed.
"I'm too lazy." He smiled. Sakura laughed softly. "So, what brings you to our lovely cube in the corner?" He asked.
"Mm, Itachi told me that you and Kiba were going to present your latest game idea to him tomorrow. I came to give you his schedule." She said as she was looking through a large day-by-day planner. Naruto smiled and Kiba sighed. Itachi was known for not knowing his schedule. Usually he said he didn't have anything going on when he had his entire day planned out. "Ah, here. He has 15 minutes free at 7am and 9:30am. Then he has 30 minutes free at 12pm and 3pm. What would work best for you two?"
"Well 30 minutes would be good." Naruto said quickly. Kiba rolled his eyes.
"I'm busy after 11." Kiba told the blonde. Naruto's eyes lit up.
"That's fine. I can present it to Uchiha-san by myself, I don't mind at all. I can come at 3." He smiled. Kiba laughed.
"Great. I will let Itachi know." Sakura smiled as she pulled the pencil from behind her ear and wrote on the planner while walking away.
"Don't you wish you could be Itachi's secretary like her?" Kiba smirked. Naruto smiled dreamily before shaking his head.
"I mean it would be cool, but I love designing games." He smiled. Kiba rolled his eyes.
"Whatever, I know that you would leave me in a heart beat if Itachi asked you." He smirked. Naruto frowned.
"I would not." He snapped. Kiba laughed.
"Yeah, you'd have to work with the asshole if you had Sakura's job." He smirked. Naruto grit his teeth.
"I really don't like Sasuke." He growled. "I mean, why is he always a jerk to me? Seriously, why is it only me he's a jerk to? I don't understand at all." He sighed.
"Who knows, he's just a douche bag." Kiba shrugged. "Let's just get back to finishing this." He said holding up one of his uncolored illustrations.
"Yeah, we need to finish before tomorrow." Naruto smiled excitedly.
"You're gonna be okay by yourself, right? I mean you're gonna get to the presentation before you tear all your clothes off and beg him to fuck you, right?" Kiba smirked. Naruto glared at him.
"Don't say disgusting things, Kiba." He snapped.
"Seriously, you've been in love with the guy for five years now and haven't even done anything. It's pathetic." Kiba rolled his eyes.
"It's not pathetic. He's my boss." Naruto argued.
"He could be something more if you would make a fucking move." The brunette sighed.
"Kiba." Naruto snapped.
"Fine. I won't say anything more about it." He sighed and pulled out his pens. Naruto sighed. It's not like he had never thought about confessing his feelings to the older of the Uchiha brothers. Unfortunately, the younger Uchiha always seemed to be in the way. Every time Naruto worked up his nerve to talk with Itachi alone, Sasuke was always there to ruin everything. He didn't know why Sasuke hated him so much, but the young raven seemed to have something against the blonde designer. Kiba and Naruto had finished their project by the end of the day and even got to go home early. Kiba left and Naruto stayed a little longer to organize everything and make sure everything was finished.
"Where's your partner?" Itachi asked. Naruto jumped slightly and quickly turned to Itachi.
"Uchiha-san, you startled me." He laughed.
"I'm sorry, Uzumaki." Itachi smiled.
"Kiba already left, he had to pick his son up from daycare. I'm just putting on a few finishing touches." Naruto smiled.
"I see, you are working hard." Itachi nodded.
"I just want my presentation to be good." Naruto scratched the back of his head. Itachi smiled.
"Don't worry, you always impress me, Uzumaki." Itachi smiled.
"R-really?" Naruto blushed.
"Itachi." Sakura called. Itachi sighed.
"I have to go now. I shall see you tomorrow at your presentation." Itachi nodded as he left. Naruto smiled as he watched Itachi leave. He half expected a sarcastic comment from Kiba except for the brunette wasn't there. He finished his work quickly and headed home. Unfortunately he met Sasuke in the elevator.
"Cutting out early, dobe?" Sasuke scoffed when he saw Naruto.
"I've already finished." Naruto snapped back.
"Really? I half expected you to be here all night preparing for your presentation tomorrow." Sasuke commented, giving Naruto a sideways glance. Naruto scoffed.
"Why do you care?" He asked.
"It's not like I do." Sasuke rolled his eyes. Naruto huffed and crossed his arms over his chest. They were quiet the rest of the ride down. As soon as the doors opened, Naruto bolted out of the confined space, he couldn't stand being that close to Sasuke any longer.
"Good night, Naruto." The girl at the front desk called.
"Good night, Tenten." He smiled and waved as he left. Naruto walked to the end of the block to wait for the bus.
"Naruto-kun, you're here early." Chio smiled.
"Oh, Chio-baa-san, good evening." Naruto smiled at the elderly woman who had become his bus riding buddy.
"Did you get off work early?" She asked.
"Yes, I finished my project early so I left early so that I can rest up for my big presentation tomorrow." Naruto smiled proudly. Chio's eyes widened.
"You've already finished? I hope your presentation goes well. Your game sounds very exciting. My little grandson just loves your video games." She smiled and pat Naruto's shoulder.
"I'm crossing my fingers that things go well. My boss has told me that he likes my work so I'm fairly confident." Naruto smiled.
"Once you become successful in your job we'll need to find you a nice girl to marry and start a family with." She smiled. Naruto laughed.
"I don't know, I'm just 22. I'm still young." He smiled. He didn't really want to tell her he wasn't going to marry a woman because he was in love with a man. Chio smiled and nodded.
"It's so good to be young." She sighed nostalgically. Naruto laughed.
"How long do you normally wait here, Chio-baa-san?" He asked looking at his watch and noticing it was still almost an hour before the bus they normally too would arrive.
"Normally an hour or so. I'm old and have nothing better to do." Chio shrugged.
"Well, we still have an hour, would you like to get a snack at the café across the street? I'll buy." He offered.
"That sounds wonderful, Naruto-kun." She smiled. Naruto helped Chio off of the bench and escorted her across the street. They sat down by the window and ordered tea and cake. Chio told Naruto about her day and Naruto listened attentively. As they were sitting, Itachi and Sasuke came into the café with a beautiful, older dark-haired woman.
"Uzumaki?" Itachi asked slightly shocked to see the blonde in the café.
"Uchiha-san." Naruto smiled brightly.
"Oh, this is your boss, Naruto-kun?" Chio asked.
"Ah, yes. Chio-baa-san, this is my boss Uchiha Itachi, Uchiha Sasuke and," He paused when he didn't know the woman's name.
"Oh, this is my mother, Uchiha Mikoto." Itachi introduced the woman.
"This is Chio-baa-san, she lives in the apartment across the hall from mine." Naruto introduced.
"It's very nice to meet you." Itachi smiled and bowed politely to Chio. Chio blushed and giggled.
"You must be Uzumaki Naruto." Mikoto smiled.
"Yes that would be me." Naruto smiled.
"My boys talk about you quite often. You are an excellent game designer from what I hear." She smiled.
"He's one of the best. My little grandson owns every game that Naruto-kun has made, they are quite entertaining." Chio smiled. Mikoto laughed softly and nodded.
"Yes, they are very fun." She agreed.
"Uzumaki has actually just finished a project and is presenting it to Itachi tomorrow afternoon." Sasuke said.
"Really? Well, good luck." Mikoto smiled.
"Don't worry, mother. As Chio said, he is one of the best." Itachi smiled and winked at Naruto. Naruto tried hard not to blush, but a bit of pink did dust his cheeks. He saw Sasuke staring at him and glared at him.
"Well, we should let you two get back to your meal." Mikoto smiled sweetly.
"Oh, it was nice to meet you, Mikoto-san." Naruto smiled.
"The pleasure was mine, Naruto-kun." She smiled.
"See you later, Uzumaki." Itachi smiled.
"Y-yeah, see you tomorrow, Uchiha-san." Naruto smiled and blushed.
"Tsk, dobe." Sasuke scoffed as they left.
"Itachi and his mother were very nice, but that other boy seemed rude." Chio sighed and shook her head. Naruto scoffed.
"He's always like that even though he has no reason to be. I don't understand why he is always so rude. He could definitely use an attitude adjustment." Naruto huffed. Chio laughed softly.
"Our bus should be getting here soon, perhaps we should go back across the street." She suggested. Naruto smiled and nodded.
"Let me pay for the food and then we could head over." He said motioning for the check from the waitress. He paid and then they went back to the bus stop, only having to wait a few minutes before the bus arrived.
"Well, good night, Naruto-kun. Thank you for the treat at the café and good luck tomorrow." Chio smiled when Naruto dropped Chio off at her apartment.
"Good night, Chio-baa-san. It was my pleasure and I will definitely let you know tomorrow how my presentation went." He smiled before heading to his own apartment. That night he went to sleep early, excited about his presentation the next day.
it's not itanaru. don't worry.
