A/N: This is just something I decided to start on a whim. For reasons known only to myself, I thought it would be cool to start a NaruHina drabble/oneshot series based on different articles of clothing. Yeah, don't ask me why, it just came to me and I went with it. It was most likely because a number of the NaruHina oneshot ideas I've come up with lately have somehow involved clothes and I figured it would make sense to group them in the one fic under one theme... I guess.

Anyway, the first one is a drabble called Subtlety and is based on scarves. So yeah, hope you like it!

Summary: Scarves are good for keeping the neck warm. But more importantly, covered


Kishimoto = the owner of Naruto.

I ≠ Kishimoto.

Therefore: I ≠ the owner of Naruto.

#1. Subtlety

Sakura knew that Naruto wasn't referred to as Konoha's most unpredictable ninja for no reason, but today he had certainly raised the bar.

As if the clearly sweltering, obnoxiously bright, orange jacket her team mate wore on a regular basis wasn't distracting enough in the heat, there was now an equally vivid, orange and thick piece of fabric shrouded around his neck.

Seriously, what was he thinking? A scarf? On a hot summer day? While training?

He clearly wasn't wearing it because he was cold, it was scorching today! He must've been hiding something; and Sakura was pretty sure she knew what.

"You know, Naruto," she called, smirking "You'll have to be a bit less obvious if you want to hide the hickies Hinata gave you!"

In the silence that followed, several yards away you could hear the sound of a mortified Hyuuga heiress fainting.

A/N: So, what do you reckon? Worth continuing? I'll try to update this ASAP, if so. But until then, please R&R! :D

Rating is K+ for the moment, but will probably go up in future.
