Chapter 1: The Unexpected Occupation
I couldn't believe that I was doing this. I couldn't believe that I, Cloud Strife, was going to apply for a job at a strip club just so I could see him again. Then again, the chance to see him again would be worth it, even though I would be practically naked. Oh well! It's not like I was doing anything special at my last job! Hell, I was very happy to have finally quit my job last week. All thanks to my new friend Naruto and his sexy boss.
One Week Ago
I used to be a cashier at the sex shop that was near my apartment. The pay wasn't much, but it was enough to keep the lights on. The shop sold everything that had to do with pleasure. From whips, collars, chains, swings, and handcuffs – you name it, we had it. The day was going as expected, not too many customers and me reading my newspaper looking for a new job, until I heard music blaring from the front door. I turned towards the front door to see a limo sitting there. I shrugged it off and went back to my newspaper. Apparently, that group started partying before 6pm. I wasn't surprised when the door chime rang and in walked a group of giggling boys.
"Hey, where are the handcuffs?" one of them asked.
"Last aisle on the left, all the way down on the middle shelf," I answered nonchalantly, not even looking up from my newspaper.
"Well damn, Cloud! If I had known you were gonna be a prick today, I wouldn't have brought my friends over to take a look at your store!" the boy laughed.
I looked up to se a face that I knew quite well. I couldn't help but smile and scratch the back of my head in embarrassment.
"Oh, sorry Naruto. I didn't mean that. You know how I get when my peace is broken."
"Apology accepted," he said before he turned to his friends. "You guys go have fun looking through the store. They literally have everything!"
With that said, they all scattered throughout the many aisles of the store, which Naruto chuckled at. Naruto and I almost looked identical, except for his skin being tanner than mine and he has whisker tattoos on his cheeks. I just happened to be a bit taller and more muscular than him. It was only natural that when he came in the shop the first time looking for handcuffs that we would bond. From then on, he came in the shop almost every other day, buying replacement items that his boyfriend had broken during their 'sessions.' It was during those visits that I learned Naruto and his boyfriend worked at the new strip club that opened up a few months back. He said that he was proud to work there alongside his boyfriend and friends, and that he makes three times as much as he did when he worked a regular day job.
"So, what are you replacing today?" I asked him while putting my newspaper away.
"The usual. New handcuffs."
My eyes widened at that.
"You just bought a pair on Thursday!"
"Well, what can I say; my man can't control his strength when it comes to me!" Naruto said with laughter. I couldn't help but laugh along with him. If there was one thing that I envied about Naruto, it was the way he was always so cheerful. I have yet to see him with a negative expression on his face.
"I saw that you were looking at the Classifieds again. I take it that you don't like it here?"
"No, I don't."
"Then why don't you come and work at Club Rev? You can either do my type of 'work' or you can be our new cashier…which would still require my type of work." Naruto said while wiggling his eyebrows. I laughed as I shook my head.
"I'm not sure that –"
"Oh my god, Naru-Naru! They have that new vibrator that I have been searching for!" shouted a blond from one of the aisles. I had to do a double take because the guy looked like a girl at first.
"I really didn't need to know that Dei-Dei!" Naruto grinned sheepishly. I couldn't help but raise a brow in confusion.
"That's Deidara by the way, who's just as crazy as me! His stage name is Bomber Boy. Don't ask why."
"Oh? And what's yours?" I said slyly.
"Kyuubi!" he said with a growl. He and I burst into laughs, until Naruto squeaked. I opened my eyes to see a beautiful raven-haired man with his hair in a low ponytail and bangs that shaped his face. His dark eyes, pale skin, and lines on his face only added to his beauty. If he works at the club with Naruto, I wouldn't mind dropping rent money to see him dance!
"Who's your friend, koi?" the man spoke.
"Tachi, don't scare me like that! This is my friend that I've been telling you about. Itachi, Cloud. Cloud, Itachi." Naruto said as formally introduced us.
I couldn't believe that this was the man that kept Naruto buying toys over and over again. He didn't look like he could break stainless steel handcuffs. I immediately changed my mind when we shook hands.
"He should work with us Naru. He may be able to outrank Gen if he wears a mini skirt." Itachi said as he gave me a look over, which caused me to blush.
"That's what I was thinking! See Cloud, since Itachi thinks you're good enough, you have to work there!"
"W-Wait a second! I-I can't wear a mini –"
"What's taking so long in here Kyuubi and Susanoo?" a low baritone voice spoke from the door. I turned my eyes towards it and gasped. If Itachi was beautiful, then this guy was a sex god! He had long silver hair that went to his knees and wore tight leather pants with a coat that was held together by leather straps that revealed part of a strong-built chest. I knew I had to be blushing because I heard Naruto's chuckles. The man turned to me and smirked. Thank god that I was already sitting down because I couldn't feel my legs. Too bad I couldn't see what his eyes looked like because of his sunglasses.
"It's Bomber Boy, boss. He's like a kid in a candy store," Itachi answered with a sigh. This was their boss? They wanted me to work for him? I'm speechless. Literally.
"Well tell him to hurry up. We have a big crowd coming in tonight and I want everyone to be ready on time." Naruto's boss said sternly.
"I thought we were having our big show next weekend." Naruto pouted.
"We are, but there is a birthday party being held at the club tonight. Remember?" Itachi said.
"Humph! Oi bitches! Boss is here!" Naruto shouted towards the aisles in which his friends disappeared. One by one, they filed out of the aisles with handfuls of… things. Naruto's mouth was hung open as they placed the items on the counter for me to ring up. As they were talking, I did what I do best: scanning and eavesdropping.
"What the hell? This isn't a grocery store! You guys do not need all of that to survive!" Naruto yelled out.
"Don't yell at all of us 'Ubi. Most of that stuff is Dei's. He ran out of hands."
"I figured that Puppeteer! What I'm trying to figure out is why are you letting him get all of that? You're his boyfriend!"
"Oh come on Naru! You know how hard it is to tell Dei no!"
"Keep your barks to yourself Biscuit!"
"Oh that's not mean at all Naru."
"Can it Chaos!"
"Um, your total comes to $1,598.67. Will that be cash, check, or charge?" I ask sheepishly as I finish bagging. I looked up to see them all gaping at me, as if I were kidding.
"You're… joking right?" Deidara asked me with his one visible blue eye that had widened.
"Sorry, but it's the real total, even with the employee discount."
Just because we sell everything doesn't mean we were cheap…
"AHHH! I can't pay that, un! That's a whole week's pay! I can't! I can't! I –"
"Here." Their boss handed me his Black Card. Now I knew the guy had to be loaded.
"Oh, thank you boss! Thank you so –"
"I'll be expecting the money by next Wednesday."
"Much…" Deidara let out a distressed sigh, much to everyone's amusement. I chuckled as I swiped the card and waited for the customer's and cashier's receipt to print out. Once it finished, I handed the card and cashier receipt to the boss.
"S-sign this please." I asked with a blush spreading across my face.
"Are you sure that's all you wanted me to do?" the man smirked at me, causing my blush to darken.
'Take me…' my inner self replied with hearts in its eyes. I heard Naruto and his friends make cat calls at their boss' suggestive statement, until the front door was slammed open and another redhead appeared.
"General…" the redhead purred as he swayed his hips to walk and wrap his arms around my sex god. Wait, why did he call him General?
"Can we leave now? I'm very hungry and I need to get my hair done so I can be ready for tonight."
I take it that this redhead must be the one that Itachi and Naruto think I can outrank. It was obvious that Naruto's posse did not like him by the way they responded to his request.
"The world doesn't revolve around you… selfish bastard."
"Yeah, what danna said, un!"
"Must you ruin all of the fun?"
The last comment made by Naruto caught the redhead's attention.
"And what fun were you previously having? Standing around looking like an idiot?"
"No, bitch, boss was just flirting with the cashier." The boy with spiky black hair said with a smirk.
I didn't expect the redhead to turn and glare at me with angry blue eyes that were sizing me up. Though I was a bit shaken at first, I was not about to let this jerk embarrass me in front of sex on legs, so sent a glare right back at him.
"That's enough, Gen." the 'general' spoke as he removed Gen's hands from around his waist, who in return let out a whine. He handed the receipt back to me and told me to have a good weekend before walking out of the door, with Gen and Naruto's friends in tow with the bags.
"So, as I was asking earlier… Would you like to work at Club Rev?" Naruto asked me again.
"I don't think I can. I don't look like you guys…" I told him honestly. Naruto and his friends are drop dead gorgeous. It's a no brainer how they can make almost two grand in one week. As for me, I highly doubt I could make one grand in a month. Naruto scoffed, which made me raise a brow.
"Are you serious? I'm sorry, but if you can make the boss flirt with you in public as the way you are then honey, you DON'T need to look like us! You just can't see what we see!" Naruto said with a truthful expression on his face as Itachi was nodding in agreement. Maybe he was right. Besides, I really did want to see their boss again. Naruto began to look through his pockets, until he found what he was looking for.
"Here, this is my card. It has the address to the club and telephone number on one side. Flash the other side with the fox on it to the security guard and he'll let you in with no problems! You just walk right up, flash, then you're in! Make sure you come by next Saturday at 10pm. That's when you can audition."
"Thank you very much Naru." I say to him with a big smile on my face. He gives me one of his own, before the black spiky-haired male yells for him to move his foxy ass into the limo. I laughed when Naruto gave him the finger. As Itachi and Naruto turned to wave goodbye to me before exiting the shop, I looked down at the card Naruto handed me. I smiled.
And that's why I am currently standing in front of the security guard, flashing the side that Naruto told me to.
"You're Cloud?" he asked. I blinked in surprise that he knew my name, but quickly shrugged it off and nodded in confirmation.
"Welcome to Club Revolution. Please enjoy yourself." He told me as he opened up the door for me to go through. My heart began to beat five times faster. This was the first time I was going to dance nude in public.
'Well, there's a first time for everything, right?' With that said, I stepped through the door and into Naruto's world and the General's business, unafraid.
