'Cuz Ev-ry-Thing is ReNt!

'I GOTTA get outta here. It's like being tied to the hood of a yellow rental truck packed full of fertilizer and fuel oil pushed over a cliff by a suicidal Mickey Mouse. Ohhhh...'

Kakashi eased into the dorm room, the squeak of the door hinge well-concealed by the tortured echoes of Tenten's chanting "Gottagottagottagotta" from the bathroom.

He cast a look about, sensed where Tenten really was, and turned around. She sat behind the door, watching him as she sharpened a kunai.

"You know, having a bunshin take a bath for you won't make you any cleaner when you dispel it."

"I've found having her do vocal exercises in the shower actually does help my own singing voice, though," Tenten shrugged as the clone hit a high 'C' with a 'leeeeap of faith...'

"Also," she gave him a pointed look, "making people think you're in the shower keeps them from barging in, trying to be chummy." He sheepishly scratched the back of his neck.

"I can't constantly be in the shower, Tenten-chan. The girls just won't stop bothering me at my dorm. Can I stay here for a while?"

She sighed, "Just don't get me expelled."


A/N: The plot is, admittedly, thinner than air. What a liberating feeling it gives me.

I have succumbed to the dreaded high school fic. And I started it with a song. Having hit rock bottom, the only way out is up, right?
