Sick Days

It was summer afternoon. Shikamaru, Sasuke, Sakura, Hinata and Naruto were hanging out in Shikamaru's and Ino's apartment. They were all gather up in the living room playing monopoly when Ino came in.

"Hey" Ino greeted with a small smile as she put her coat and purse down.

"Hey" Everyone greeted without looking at her.

"Hey shouldn't you be at work?" Shikamaru asked as he stands up and walked over to Ino.

"They sent me home. They said I can't work if I'm sick" Ino said. Her voice sound raspy and sick.

"Awww" Everyone said as they all looked at her.

"I'm so sorry you're sick" Shikamaru said as he smiled softly at her.

"I'm not sick!" Ino snapped making Shikamaru jump back with surprise. "I don't get sick. Getting sick is for weaklings, it's for pansies" She barked.

"No one thinks that you're a pansy… but we do think that you need a tissue" Sakura said as she looked at Ino's nose with discuss. Ino's eyes winded and cleaned her nose with her hand.

"I have not been sick in over three years" Ino yelled before she sneezed.

"I think you're sick because that used to be in your nose" Shikamaru said as he pointed at a giant booger left in the floor. Ino stared at the booger and swallowed loudly. "I'll get some tissue" Shikamaru said as he made his way to the bathroom.

"I don't need a tissue! I'm fine-d" Ino yelled but Shikamaru ignored her.

"When you put a D at the end of fine… you're not fine" Sasuke said as Ino sat right next to Sakura who quickly checked her temperature.

"I'm fine-d" She tried. "I'm fine-d" She tried again. "It's a really hard word to say!" Ino said as she crossed her arms and glared at Sasuke. Shikamaru smirked as he handed her the tissue which she didn't want to use. She was so stubborn.


Hours later, everyone had left and Shikamaru and Ino were left alone. Ino had gone to the bathroom to take a bath while Shikamaru watches some TV.

All of the sudden Ino come out running from the bathroom wearing a long red robe. "Okay. So, what do you want to do?" She asked with a grin. "Let's do something crazy!"

"I know, let's rest and drink lots of fluids" Shikamaru said as he showed her the glass of juice he had giving her hours before.

"Okay, I'll rest. But if I'm going to bed, then you're coming with me" She said as she tried to sound sexy.

"See, that would be impossible to resist if you weren't all… drippy here" Shikamaru said as he pointed at her nose while making a discuss face. Ino shook her head and cleaned her nose with sleeve.

"Are you saying that you don't want to get with this?" She said as she tried to move in a sexy way.

"I don't think you should say that even when you're healthy" Shikamaru said as he raised his eyebrow.

"Come on" She said before she started coughing making Shikamaru jump away.

"Honey, don't take this personally. I just can't have sex with a sick person" Shikamaru said softly trying not to make her feel bad.

"I'm with you Shikamaru. I can't have sex with a sick person either, It's disgusting" She said as she walked to where he was. "But I'm not sick. Let me prove it to you" she said as she sat in his lap and got her face really close to his making him lean back. "We are two healthy people in the prime of lime"

"See, that's the thing, I would like to stay in the 'prime of lime'." He said as jumped out of the couch.

"Grrr" She said, as she made her hand look like a paw and then smiled sexily while biting her lower lip.

"Oh, okay, now I'll do it" he said sarcastically while rolling his eyes. Ino shrugged and walked in to the room without another word. When he finally heard the close he smile and sat back on the couch.


Two hours later, Shikamaru had fallen asleep watching TV. "Shikamaru!" Ino called from inside their bedroom making wake up.

"What is it, honey? You need some tea? Some soup?" He asked as he got up and walked to their bedroom. When he came in he found Ino in smiling at him laying on their bed. "Oh!!"

"Calling Dr. Big" She said as she showed her sexy Pjs under robe. "Dr. Big to bed" She repeated as she patted the bed beside her.

"Aw jeez, honey. I thought you were asleep" He whined.

"How can I be asleep, knowing that you were in the next room?" She asked sexily.

"I was asleep" He said to himself. Mean while Ino slip off her robe and when the cold air touch her it made her shiver.

"No, honey. You know what's sexy? Layers" Shikamaru said as he rushed over to where she was and tried to put her robe back on. "Layers are sexy. And blankets are sexy. And hot-water bottle are sexy" Shikamaru said as he tried to get her back in the blankets.

"Come on. Get in to bed. I want to prove I'm not sick" Ino said as she shrugged everything off. "I wanna make you feel as good as I feel" She added before sneezing.

"Would you please get some rest?" Shikamaru begged.

"I'm fine" Ino winded before she started coughing making Shikamaru jump again.

"You're coughing" He said.

"No, I'm not" Ino said. "I'm laughing" Ino said as she started to laughed but ended up coughing again.

"At what?" Shikamaru asked.

"Just something I heard before" Ino said.

"Tell me" Shikamaru said while smirking.

"No, I don't wanna spoil the mood" Ino said sexily as she got close to his face, before sneezing right in his face making him close his eyes and back away. "Oops" She said with tiny smile.

"Go to bed" Shikamaru order before he left the room.


Shikamaru sat in the couch again. He was reading the news paper when Ino came out of the room. "Shikamaru?" Ino said in soft voice. "I think I'm sick" She said.

"Really? Struck down in the 'Pribe of libe'?" Shikamaru asked as he smirked at her making her roll her eyes.

"Okay, fine, I admit it. I feel terrible" She said. "Can you please rub this on my chest?" She asked as he handed him a bottle of vapor cream. Shikamaru smirked as he took it but then he's smirk faded and sat right back down.

"No, no, no. You are not getting me this way" He said.

"Come on, I really need your help" Ino said but Shikamaru cut her off. "Fine, I'll rub it on myself" Ino said as she took the bottle back.

"Okay" Shikamaru said as he went back to reading the paper.

Ino slowly took her robe off, leaving her upper side completely naked before she started rubbing the cream in her chest. She breath heavily in while Shikamaru watched, making him twitch.

"So you're just kind of rubbing it on yourself?" He asked as he put the paper down and stared at her.

"Yeah" She said as she raised her eyebrow.

"It's nice" He said.

"You're kidding me? Is this turning you on?" She asked.

"Yeah" He said.

"Is it the rubbing or he smell?" She asked.

"It's all very good" He said as he looked away. Ino groaned and put her robe back on and sat in the chair next to the couch where Shikamaru sat while Shikamaru stared at her. All of the sudden Shikamaru stand up and walked closer to their bedroom door.

"So you want to go… and mix it up?" He asked.

"Not now, I'm sick" Ino said as cuddle in her robe.

"Oh, come on, you big faker" Shikamaru said.

"What about never sleeping with sick people?" She asked.

"Well, that was before all the vaporizing action" Shikamaru winded.

"Okay, if you really want to have sex" Ino said as she slowly got up.

"Okay" Shikamaru said excitedly and ran to their room. Ino smiled down at the vapor bottle.

"Works like a charm" She said and followed Shikamaru in to their room.
