Chapter 1: SasuSaku


The crowd roared deafeningly as the baseball flew up in the air.


"Damn it." Sasuke hissed, fishing the vibrating phone from his pocket. Frantically, he hit the green button, not bothering to check who had called. "Yeah?" He shifted his gaze back down at the field, most of his attention still on the game.

"Hey honey." Sakura purred from the other line. "Watcha doing?" You could just taste the sugary sweetness dripping from her tone.

Oh God, Sasuke thought, she needs something.

Suddenly, a loud cry surfaced. "WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!" With a visible scowl, Naruto continued to loudly express his sentiments on whatever had just transpired. Sasuke, being just beside the blonde, had to cringe and cover his ears as the rest of the crowd uttered their own personal complaints.

"You're at a game?"

"Uh, yeah. Why?" If he was screwed, better know now than later.

"I just- Well, we didn't see each other yesterday so I was hoping-"

"Sakura, we ate lunch yesterday."

"Yeah, but we didn't see more of each other after that! I mean, you didn't even call last night.."

Sasuke sighed. God, she's lucky he loves her.

"We'll go out after the game."

"Thank you so much, hun! I'll see you later!"

With that, he hung up.

"Who was that?" Momentarily tearing his attention from the field, Naruto turned towards his friend, who'd just sighed and shook his head.

"No one."

"You still coming with us to that (weird) tomato place though, right?"

Sasuke glared.

Suddenly, Naruto found himself nursing a swollen cheek.

Number 1: Sometimes we are not thinking about you. Live with it.
