Rated M for future violence, and possible lemons.

READ AND REVIEW THE STORY!

Summary:

Sasuke Uchiha is the CEO of the biggest industry in LA. He models part time and during one of the shoots he meets a shy yet gorgeous young woman named Hinata Hyuuga. The two start off rough but soon reach to a conclusion that can be sappy to anyone. Alongside with these two are Itachi, Naruto, Ino, Gaara, Temari, Shikamaru, Sakura, and Tenten. All of their lives connect in one way or another and soon the entire group become closer than ever expected. The harsh industry of modeling, the too up tight business world of CEO's and the loves that struggle to make it around those tabloids come together to create a love story one shouldn't forget.

Main pairing: SasuHina

Even if SasuHina is the main pairing, the other couples play such large roles that it's necessary to have them. Some shifts may be made and some pairings could seem higher up then others.

AGAIN, ALL NARUTO CHARACTERS WILL MAKE ATLEAST ONE APPEARANCE.

AND NOW HERE IS THE ACTUAL CHAPTER. Sorry for boring you.


Missed Meeting

"Ne Sasuke. Are you done yet?!" yelled the hyperactive blonde as he burst through the intricate double doors of the large office. Sasuke didn't even bother to look up at his friend as he continued to sort through and sign the large stacks of papers. Naruto was a bit peeved that his best friend didn't even look up so he walked around to the side of Sasuke's desk and stared at him. And stared. And stared. Until…

"Dobe! Why are you looking at me like that. Turning gay?" Sasuke shot a glare towards the young man.

"No! But I knew it would piss you off so of course I would result to this tactic!" he exclaimed proudly. Not even letting Sasuke reply with a grunt he continued, "Seriously though. I came with something important. I need you…"

"Wait dobe, let me guess. You need me to model for you again to save your sorry ass from Kakashi."

"Ehehe… how'd you know?"

Sasuke sighed and placed his expensive imported pen onto his desk and looked straight at the blonde.

"Because you idiot, I know you."

"Ehh… so… will you do it teme?!"

"Hn."

Naruto looked at the man before him and was ready to beg his heart out when he noticed his friend stand and move towards the gaping windows to lean on the seal. Naruto got up from his kneeling position and made his way to stand in front of the young CEO.

"Will I have to deal with troublesome women?" Sasuke asked with one eyebrow raised.

"You'll have a female partner but trust me. This one is tolerable."

"You sure now?"

"Yea."

"Hn… fine, but remember this dobe. If I come out raped, you're getting sent to the bottom of the ocean." Naruto jumped up with glee at his friends acceptance but then quickly paused and realized he'd have to make sure not to get any other girls other than the models in the set. He ran out of the room without even saying bye and left Sasuke back to his mountains of paperwork.


"A-ano.. I'll b-be working w-with a m-male model?" Hinata managed to squeak out.

"Yea Hina-chan! He's my best bud. You know, the CEO of Uchiha Inc.? That's the guy!" Naruto belted out. Hinata nearly fainted. She knew him. Of course she did. They met in high school for Kami's sake! She doubted he remembered her though so she would play it off. In the back of her mind, she couldn't help but remember the crush on him she had developed after her feelings for the man before her subsided. True, she was not a fangirl, but she felt for him past the looks. In highschool he seemed pained at times and when the time came that he accepted the position as CEO he seemed anything but happy.

She was there at that party. She didn't get to talk to him but mingled with Naruto since he couldn't reach his friend either. Too many reporters crowded the table. She couldn't help but feel pained for him. Unlike him, her cousin willingly took the position away from her so she could pursue her modeling career.

"U-um.. Na-naruto-kun.. Ino-chan and Sa-sakura-chan are asking if w-we can meet them for lunch." She slightly cursed herself for the stuttering. The damned habit was coming back. She only stuttered when she was nervous, and the fact that she had just discovered that she would be working with a MALE model, but said model was a man that she was secretly admiring. Just her luck.

"Sure Hina-chan! I'll drive so just go grab your stuff and meet me out front."

With that being said Hinata rushed off to grab her coat and purse off the set and then maneuvered herself towards Naruto's 2009 CTS Cadillac Sedan. She made herself comfortable in the passenger side and buckled herself before they sped off into the busy streets of midday LA.


Sasuke stared blankly out of the window at the tiny café his brother had chosen.

"Hey hey, Otouto-chan. Are you even listening?" Itachi asked his younger brother. He seemed so dazed, it reminded him of Shikamaru.

"What aniki?" Sasuke asked a bit annoyed. He only came because his brother insisted that he'd stave if he didn't leave the office.

"How's the office? I mean, you're holding up pretty well according to the tabloids."

"Hn. Aniki you know better than to believe tabloids but yea, I'm doing fine. Couldn't we talk about this at home?"

"Yea but this is more fun!" Itachi proclaimed proudly.

"Hn."

They continued light conversation as they enjoyed a simple meal. That was until a pink blob of hair managed to snake its way to his right side.

"Sasuke-kunnnn," the blob shrieked. Okay sure, Sasuke was friends with her, but her infatuation was ridiculous. He pushed her off and she pouted lightly before actually sitting in the seat she hovered above. She stared at him for awhile, and gained no response so she turned her face towards the man across from her crush. Her eyes widened a little at the site of hunky man meat that was catching her eye.

"Ne Sasuke-kun, who's this?" she asked, not once taking her eyes off the man.

"My older brother Sakura."

"Older brother? Well know, the older piece of meat…," she thought devilishly to herself. Sure she knew he had a brother but this, this man was not what she expected. She expected handsome of course, but not down right drop my panties right here and now gorgeous.

"Sakura-chan was it? Pleasure to meet you," Itachi said politely as he extended a hand. The girl was cute, but Sasuke seemed to have no intrest so he would just have to save his little brother and take the girl out of his hands.

Sakura nearly fainted as she took his hand, and as soon as they released she quickly moved to Itachi's side of the table.

"What's your name gorgeous?" she asked with a giggle. Sasuke nearly gagged at the sight. His number one fangirl had suddenly shifted gears and moved to his older brother. Not to say he wasn't happy, he definitely was, but the sight of the goo-goo lovey eyes was making him sick.

"Itachi, and if I'm gorgeous then you must be down right intoxicating."

Now Sasuke really wanted to gag so he quickly put his share of the money down and stood to leave.

"Wait Sasuke-kun! Naruto is coming! Don't you want to hang out for awhile?" Sakura asked.

"Hn. I already saw the dobe, just tell him I said hi. Oh, and Itachi, if you two are going to do something inappropriate, don't do it at our house." With that said he left a blushing Sakura and a smirking Itachi alone to wait for the rest of the group.

Sasuke hopped into his car, not noticing the blushing pearl-eyed mistress that was currently eyeing him as he drove off.

Hinata blushed and then ran inside to meet up with Sakura, leaving a confused Naruto to lock up.
