Rated: M Title: Yaoi Education Program Chapter One
A/N: Ok, so I thought of this while I was watching Friends…go figure. All right, let's get started shall we? It might be slow at first like no sex in the first chapter but we shall get to that later. I'm kind of working on my building up to the climax skills. That's why its rated M, cause let me tell ya…once we get to that point…the ratings will be needed. Bear with me ok?
Also, I've sort of modernized everything. So I haven't completely eliminated Kazakage's and such I've just twisted it to fit my story. And if I spell anything wrong…please tell me nicely I haven't seen the show in years. Thus, my caring to spell things correctly has disappeared along with my motivation for reading the manga and watching the show. Kind of sad in a way…
But let me add that you're probably wondering why you've seen this chapter over and over again. I get notes that there is a problem and I fix them pronto. But I WILL be updating soon...so calm down everyone. So many changes...I hope I don't confuse anybody.
Chapter One: Moving In
Gaara was moving in with Naruto. It had been awhile since the two had seen each other. The only thing they could communicate with was through e-mail, phone calls, and letters. On occasion Gaara would receive a letter by pigeon but it only happened every once in awhile. Whenever Iruka-sensei grounded Naruto.
"You ready to go?" Temari asked him, popping her head inside of the bland looking room. She had decided to try a new hairstyle this time. Instead of the usually four pommed pigtails she wore she had pulled her hair back into a low ponytail, after hours of straightening it.
"I guess, I don't need much. Naruto told me to bring my clothes and nothing else really," he said. His older sister was going to take him to Naruto's apartment. Gaara knew the real reason she wanted to go, Temari wanted to see her boyfriend Shikamaru.
"Did Kankuro say goodbye to you yet?" she asked, fixing her hair again.
"No, he said he had something to do."
"Probably off playing with those damn puppets again. It doesn't matter; I've got things to do. Come on, the train leaves in half an hour." Temari helped Gaara with most of his things and walked together with him to the train station. After throwing his stuff in the luggage carrier she sat next to the window and motioned for Gaara to sit next to her.
"New school, new place, a pretty sweet deal if you ask me," Temari said, chewing on a piece of gum to try and relax herself. Gaara could only manage to nod. He couldn't wait to see Naruto; it had been years since they had actually met. If anyone were to ask him, he could probably recite the year, day, and time since their last departure. Gaara couldn't help his feelings of longing for Naruto, he missed him.
"Maybe if you're lucky he might ask you out," Temari winked, Gaara froze. Temari, realizing what she had said stroked her hand through his fiery red hair.
"Sorry, I forgot about…hey, you want me to get you a soda?" Temari got up from her seat and went to the back to get something to drink. Gaara was fine, well, as fine as he could be. He usually never talked about it but his older brother and sister knew what happened. It was best if they acted like it didn't.
After a few minutes Temari returned with a ginger ale and gave it to Gaara. He took it and used it to cool his forehead; he was unusually hot for some reason, it was probably his nerves acting up again. The train started to move and the voice on the intercom stated that they would be leaving Sunagakure and would be heading to Konoha. Gaara rested his chin in his hands and was waiting to doze off when his sister tapped his head.
"Since Kankuro isn't here, I guess I can give you your present," she said happily.
"Present?" Gaara wasn't known to receive presents, much less want them. However, if it was his older brother or sister giving it to him, he could stand to make an exception.
"It's a cell phone. You might have to read the instructions though. You and technology don't get along very well." Temari handed him a small cellular device. Gaara turned it on and noticed that a few numbers had already been put inside. Home, Kankuro's, Temari's, 911 of course, and Naruto's. Gaara found himself blushing when he saw Naruto's number.
"I almost forgot your good luck charm," Temari added. She pulled out a cell phone strap with a charm attached and tied it to the antenna. The charm was a sand gourd, Gaara smiled at the thoughtful little charm.
"Don't worry about it. I'm going to go to sleep, wake me up when we get there okay?"
"Hmmm?" She was already beginning to slip into her subconscious. Gaara looked down at the gift and at the dangling sand gourd phone charm.
"Never mind." Temari couldn't hear him any longer, she was already asleep. It was about two or three hours until they reached Konoha. Gaara decided to re-read the last letter from Naruto. He had read it so many times that he already knew what was on the piece of paper before looking at it.
I'm actually very excited that you'll be moving in with me. Iruka wouldn't let me get my own place unless I had a roommate. I can't believe we're already second years. Truth be told, I find myself envying your classmates from first year. I really wanted to see how cute you must have looked. We'll be going to school together; eating breakfast together, I won't let you out of my sight so prepare yourself.
Anyway, Sakura is pretty much excited to see you. I think anything that keeps me away from her beloved Sasuke makes her excited. I have so many things to show you. I've been thinking about what I want to write to you but I can never find the right words. I know what I want to say, I just don't want to write it. I can't wait to see you. I really did miss you. I found a great place that should resemble your house. It's a very sandy area and not many people stop by there, sounds perfect for you to play around. I guess this is the shortest letter I've written. I'll tell you more the moment I see you at my front door. I promise.
Gaara pressed the sheet of paper to his nose. It still had his scent on it. Naruto loved ramen, it would make sense that every letter he sent him smelled of it. Gaara carefully folded the piece of paper before putting it in his pocket. He kept everything that Naruto sent him. As thoughts of what Naruto must look like filled his mind he heard the intercom from the train say that they had arrived.
"Temari…wake up," he said, nudging her out of her dream.
"I don't want to," she complained. Gaara sighed, Temari never wanted to wake up for anything.
"Temari, if you don't get off you won't be able to see Shikamaru." Temari bolted awake, grabbed Gaara, got his bags, and ran off the train. Temari was so easily motivated.
"Okay, it's somewhere over here," Temari said, pointing southeast.
"Temari, it's over there," Gaara corrected. Why she insisted on reading the map was a mystery to him. She had the worst sense of direction.
"I'm telling you it's over there Gaara! Listen to your onee-chan!"
"Onee-chan, you're about to get us lost." Gaara grabbed Temari's blouse and dragged her toward Naruto's apartment. When they finally reached their destination the two were a bit shocked at what they saw.
"That's a pretty big building," Temari said looking up. The two siblings were looking up at what looked like a skyscraper.
"What floor did he say he was on again?" Gaara asked her.
"The ninth floor."
"Are you sure Naruto isn't loaded?"
"Yup." The two walked toward the inside and asked where the elevator was. It looked so classy. Everything looked so professional and expensive. It wasn't until later that Gaara realized that most of the students from his new school occupied this building.
"Ninth floor, door number seven," Temari said aloud. "You okay Gaara?"
Gaara was on the ground, wheezing. He didn't like heights. He could stand them but he didn't like them one bit. Especially if he was in an elevator. There was nothing good about a small rectangular box dangling from a metal string going in an upward direction, it was unnatural. He would have preferred to take the stairs but there was no way Temari would have gone for that.
"I'm fine, I'm perfectly fine," he lied.
"You don't look fine. You look paler than usual. Didn't think that was possible for you. Your tatoo even looks pale," Temari pointed out. She told Gaara she was going to knock on the door and Gaara forcefully stood up. He was still a little shooken up but not too much that Naruto would be able to tell.
"Hey guys, you're earlier than I thought you would be." Standing a distance away from Temari was Naruto. He was walking towards the door with a bag of ramen in his hands. His blonde hair and his sparkly blue eyes were just like Gaara remembered. He found himself blushing at the sight of him. He still had that stupid smile on his face and his figure was more built, he had gotten a lot taller than Gaara had expected as well.
From the looks of it Naruto was still wearing his school uniform. An unbuttoned white collared dress shirt revealed the white t-shirt he was wearing, his black pants hung lazily on his waist, and two orange wristbands blazed brightly from his wrists. Naruto nodded at Temari as he walked towards Gaara.
"Hey Gaara, long time no see. You still look the same, as cute as ever," he laughed. Gaara found himself blushing at the comment. He never told Naruto that he was gay; it's not something he wanted to talk about in a letter.
"Y-You look different than I expected," Gaara managed to say.
"Do I? How so?"
"Hey, you can start flirting after you open this door. I have to meet Shikamaru in twenty minutes, you're making me late," Temari complained. Naruto chuckled and complied with Temari's wishes. He quickly unlocked the door, revealing the inside. Gaara was surprised, it actually looked clean. Of course it smelled like ramen, but it was clean.
The inside was as extravagant as the rest of the building. It looked so classy and a certain part of the wall was more like one giant window. Naruto grabbed Gaara's things from Temari and she hastily scurried off. Naruto disappeared into one of the rooms leaving Gaara to explore the kitchen. It was so shiny and metallic, Gaara was used to the traditional settings of a kitchen. He didn't really like technology, he was still trying to make sense of the microwave back at home. Naruto came back from putting Gaara's things away and watched as the red head explored.
"You like it?" he asked, leaning on the wall. Gaara looked up and glanced at Naruto, he was watching him so intently.
"It's nice, might be hard to get used to but I like it." Naruto smirked.
"Hey Gaara, I've been meaning to ask you something. I prefer to ask you in person, do you mind if I ask now?" Naruto was looming over him. Gaara silently cursed at his height, he was only one or two inches shorter than him. Gaara shook his head; he had wanted to tell Naruto about his sexual orientation and now seemed as good as ever.
"Why is it that you never talk about a girlfriend?" he asked calmly. Gaara's eyes grew wide, he hastily looked up at Naruto and then back down at the ground.
"You noticed that?"
"I notice everything you write to me. Like how you don't have a girlfriend and that someone hurt you. I don't know how but I could tell from your writing style that you were in pain for awhile…you still are."
"It's nothing really. I don't have a girlfriend because...I don't like girls."
"You're still obsessing over cootey's? That's cute." Naruto was beginning to laugh but Gaara didn't want him to. He already felt nervous enough.
"That's not it! I just don't like girls! I can't like girls in that way. You might think its gross but I can't bring myself to even think about a girl because I…"
"You're gay?" Naruto interrupted him. He had said what Gaara had been meaning to say. Gaara looked up to see Naruto's interested face, then a smile. He expected more of a disgusted look then the playful demeanor that the blonde displayed.
"That's fine with me. You want to know why?" Naruto was beginning to inch closer to him. Gaara shook his head. Naruto grabbed Gaara's face and pulled his head upwards, into a kiss. Naruto's lips were touching his, a gentle and soft kiss. Gaara wasn't used to kissing like this; he had never kissed anyone that conveyed such subtle feelings. The two boys separated leaving Gaara confused.
"I like boys and I like girls. I'm not very picky. Gaara, I really wish you would talk to me more. I'm going to go pick up your textbooks and uniform. I have to make a copy of the apartment key, so don't lock the door. I should be back in awhile and then we can catch up some more." Naruto put his hands in his pockets and walked out the door, leaving Gaara stunned. His face was turning red.
"There's no way, he can't…Naruto, just kissed me because he was proving a point. He can't like me, he can't. I won't allow it." As he thought of the kiss and the taste of ramen on his lips, Gaara's chest ached.
A/N: okay, that was pretty good I guess. Sort of had that subtlety going on there. So leave reviews! PLEASE!!! (on knees, begging) I'll update soon but reviews motivate me so leave lots of reviews! Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell everybody! So most of you are probably wondering about the title...in short this is what happened. It used to be called Don't Love Me, then I thought about it and didn't like it...thus it became The Yaoi Education Program. I may not mention the title this first chapter but trust me...it will get mentioned and will piece itself together. Sorry for any confusion that my name change might have brought up.
I also realized that I got Temar's boyfriend's name wrong. It's not Shino its Shikamaru...can't believe I thought the two were the same. It wasn't until a few days later that I realized...isn't Shino the one with the bugs? Well, he is...he IS in fact the one with the bugs. So if I haven't caught any other Shino names in there tell me and I will fix that ASAP.
It also turns out I spelled his name wrong. Its supposed to be Shikamaru not Shinkamaru...can't believe I let that one slip by me. If you catch anymore just let me know. I usually update after I get done fixing everything that people find wrong or would need improving.
