"Hey, check her out." A blonde ninja with a twitching senbon in his mouth whispered to his friend as he leaned against the back wall of the mission room.

"Genma…" A nin with bandages over the bridge of his nose warned. The nin stopped filing mission reports to turn and glare at the bandana'd man, "One of these days they're going to hear you."

"Chill, Kotetsu. Today's not the day, cause she didn't hear a word." Genma dismissed Kotetsu, then added with a grin, "Seriously though…get a load of that ass."

A tan young lady had just entered the room carrying a rather large stack of papers. The two nin watched as she crossed the room, not struggling in the least, despite how much the pile must weigh. She was a few inches shorter than Genma and Kotetsu, and was rather…'well-built', to say it kindly. She had long brown hair splayed over her shoulders that swished behind her as she crossed the room, and beautiful hazel eyes. However, Genma's eyes weren't on any of that. Instead, the shameless nin was slightly tilted sideways as he watched the girl's rear sashay across the room.

"Genma." Kotetsu hissed.

"Hey, you're new, right?" Genma asked, this time loud enough for the nin to hear him.

The lady in question raised a slender eyebrow.

"I'm Leiko-san, yes." The girl, Leiko, corrected the higher level nin without hesitation as she deposited the papers on the mission room desk.

"Shiranui Genma, at your service." The blonde disappeared, then reappeared at Leiko's desk with a poof of smoke and leaves. He extended a hand with a flirty grin.

If Leiko was impressed or put off by the display, she showed no sign of it. Instead, she calmly regarded the nin before shaking the offered hand.

"Is there a particular reason you can't walk five feet, Shiranui-san?" Leiko smiled sweetly as she shook Genma's hand.

"Ah, no…"Genma raised his eyebrows, slightly surprised.

"Hmm." Leiko nodded before returning to his papers. Kotetsu struggled not to fall off his chair with suppressed laughter.

"Shut it." Genma growled to Kotetsu, who only laughed harder. He turned back to Leiko. "So, Kotetsu told me you were the only one to pass the chunnin exams this year."

"Well, there really weren't that many applicants…" Leiko shrugged modestly as she began sorting through the papers.

"Wish I could have been there to see you. I'm sure you were amazing." Genma grinned slyly as he bent over the desk, turning up the charm.

"Shame." Leiko replied in a monotone.

"So…your name means 'arrogant', huh?" Genma gave a sideways grin, "That's funny, so am I."

"I can see that." Leiko replied without glancing up.

"…right. So, you know any of the other chunnin and Jounin you'll be dealing with?" Genma tried to salvage the conversation.

"Only you, Shiranui-san." Leiko droned, in a tone that made it blatantly clear she wished she didn't.

"Maa, just Genma's fine." Genma waved her off, not bothering to notice the chunnin's disinterest.

There was a moment's silence as he waited for Leiko to say the same. No such offer seemed forthcoming. The only sound that filled the silence was Kotetsu's incessant snickering.

"Let's get to know each other, shall we?" Genma offered smoothly as he leaned over the desk. This new girl was hot, and didn't seem to be aware of Genma's reputation as an…*ahem* romantically inclined individual (cough cough man-slut cough cough). She was the perfect catch…minus the whole 'obviously completely disinterested' thing. They could work past that, Genma was sure.

"I'm aware of who you are, Shiranui-san. You're a Tokubetsu Jounin, because of your impressive fighting capabilities, yet didn't make full Jounin because your lacking genjutsu abilities. You're 29 years old, your birthday is July 17th, and your blood type is A. Your usual slew of teammates include Namiashi Raidou, Hagane Kotetsu, Kamizuki Izumo, Yamashiro Aoba, and Umino Iruka." Leiko listed, "I am also completely and utterly not interested in you, and am ashamed that you don't even seem to be able to recognize a simple transformation jutsu."
Genma's eyes nearly bugged out of his head.

It was then that Kotetsu literally fell off his chair laughing.

Genma suddenly realized it, and smacked himself in the forehead, "Damnit Iruka, that's not funny."

"Oh, you so know it was." The girl smirked before disappearing a poof of smoke to reveal one Umino Iruka.

"It was!" Kotetsu agreed, barely able to speak through his laughter.

"I can't believe you fell for it though." Iruka rolled his eyes, "You've seen my Perfect Clone jutsu hundreds of times."

"Yeah, but…hello!" Genma waved his hands, "Perfect Clone jutsu! Why should I be able to see through it?"

"Because it was obvious." Iruka rolled his eyes. Who else would know all your stats?"

"Yeah, but that was at the end!" Genma protested.

"You're also missing the really obvious part; chunnin exams aren't until next month." Iruka snickered.

"Oh, like I'm supposed to know." Genma rolled his eyes.

"You are; you're a judge, remember?" Iruka nudged his friend.

"Aw, crap. I forgot." Genma cursed.

"Don't worry-Iruka's going to liven things up this year, right Iruka-kun?" A new voice contributed with a smirk as she sauntered in.

"Anko! I told you, I'm not going to." Iruka shook his head.

"Aw, c'mon, Ruru-oto! You promised!" Anko pleaded.

"What's he gonna do?" Genma's eyes lit up, and Kotetsu jumped as well.

"Dunno yet. But I dared him to do something crazy to the wanna-be chunnin, so you know he's going to." Anko confided.

"Uh, excuse me? Right here. And I said I'm not going to!" Iruka protested.

"He will." Anko nodded knowingly, "He never could turn down a dare."

"I can too!" Iruka scowled. Deep down, he knew he couldn't.

"Suuuure you can." Anko sang.

"Whatver you say, Iruka." Kotetsu agreed with a laugh.

"Uh-huh." Genma smirked unbelievingly. "Were you dared to pretend to be a girl to trick me?"

"Uh…well…I'm not going to listen this time!" Iruka finished quickly.

"Yeah, but were you?" Genma grinned knowingly.

"…maybe. But whatever! I said it was different! I'm not going to prank those poor kids!" Iruka announced.

"Sure, Ruru-oto. Sure." Anko smirked.
