"You can't hold on to a girlfriend for more than a week, can you?" Itachi said to Deidara as they walked through the halls of Konoha High School, the rest of the Akatsuki gang right behind them.
The school year had just started a week ago and Deidara's new girlfriend had been dumped. Deidara went through girls faster than a baby goes through diapers.
"She bored me after a while. She wouldn't shut up for anything, un." said Deidara. Truth was, Deidara only dates, sleeps with and then dumps girls. He was definitely a player.
Even though every girl he dates knows he's a player, they still believe that he'll fall in love with them, because they're just that special.
An idea was brewing in Itachi's head. He and Deidara were friends, but even friends can mess with each other, right?
"Deidara, I bet you couldn't hold on to a girlfriend for more than a month." Itachi said tiredly.
Deidara's eyes widened. "Oh really?" he said. Itachi knew he couldn't resist a challenge.
"I bet that I could hold on to a girlfriend for a whole 30 days. I will even let you choose the girl, yeah." He said smugly.
The Akatsuki gang heard the proposal and jumped right in. "Look at her. I bet she'd be fun on a date." said Kisame, his pointy teeth bared as he pointed to a nerdy looking freshmen who seemed to faint at the sight of the Akatsuki.
The Akatsuki were the bad boys of the school. Except for Konan. She was the only girl. She wasn't a mean girl or anything; she stayed around because she and Pein (Another member of the Akatsuki) were dating.
She also highly disapproved of the bet. He's gonna date some poor girl who will fall for him and end up with her heart broken. I pity the poor girl they choose. She suddenly had an idea.
"Itachi, may I choose who dates Deidara? I have a girl in mind that would be perfect for this situation." asked Konan. Itachi looked puzzled but allowed it. Deidara shifted his focus to Konan.
"Who is it?" he asked.
"I'm not telling you until I see if she's even interested in you." She replied flatly. She walked away when the bell rang. She had to find Junsei.
Junsei Na Unmei. When translated it means "Pure Destiny". Such a beautiful name for such an ordinary person. I don't know what my parents were thinking when they named me.
I'm quite tall for a girl and I have short red hair with one pink stripe on the side. Odd enough, I was born with that pink stripe. I have dark blue eyes and tan skin. I'm very quiet and antisocial, yet I have a boatload of friends.
So far, high school has been ok. Well except for Ino. She messes around with me and my friend Sakura all the time. She always tries stealing Sakura's boyfriend Sasuke.
"Gosh Ino! Can you just leave me alone!" said Sasuke angrily. Ino was in our art class harassing Sasuke.
Sakura's green eyes were staring daggers at Ino. If I wasn't there to keep the peace, Sakura probably would've jumped over the table and choked Ino.
"Yeah Ino, you can't win Sasuke. Just take your stupid face somewhere else. I'm getting a headache just looking at you." I said tiredly. Sakura giggled while our other friend Naruto high-fived me.
"Oh yeah! She told you Ino-pig! Believe it!" laughed Naruto. Ino glared at me.
"Whatever loser. At least I can get a boyfriend. I mean, when's the last time you were on a date?"
Harsh much. Just because I never had a boyfriend doesn't mean I can't get one. "That's none of your business Pig." I said, trying to sound nonchalant. She could tell she hit a nerve.
"Whatever. I'll see you later Sasuke." She said seductively before she left. Sasuke rolled his eyes.
"She never quits huh?" asked Naruto.
"Nope." said Sakura. "One of these days I'm gonna hurt her." I laughed.
Naruto looked like he was thinking really hard about something. "What's wrong Naruto?" I asked.
"Ino's right about something. I've never seen you with a boyfriend before." he said. "Why not?"
Sakura's eyes got wide. "Your right! Junsei, have you ever had a boyfriend?"
I blushed and shook my head. Darn you Naruto!
Sakura gasped. "We need to find you one!" she said excitedly. I could see her trying to think of which guy would be perfect for me.
"No Sakura. I don't want or need a boyfriend now." I said. She sighed.
"Hey Junsei!" I heard a familiar voice call. It was Konan. I smiled when I saw my blue haired friend.
"Hey girl! How are things with you?" I asked. Konan and I were best friends. Odd enough, no one else knew about it.
I mean the Akatsuki don't even know my name. She always refers to me as her "friend" when she would come over. She always believed if they knew my name they would think they had a right to hit on me.
Also, hardly anyone knew I was friends with an Akatsuki member. It would kill my reputation as a good girl.
She motioned me away from my friends. "I have something to ask you. Please be opened minded." She started.
"What is it?" I asked suspiciously.
"Deidara made a bet with Itachi that he could keep a girlfriend for 30 days. I get to choose which girl he dates."
"Awesome! Who are you gonna torture him with? Ino?" I asked.
She kept staring at me and smiling. "What?" I asked.
"You Junsei. I'm gonna torture him with you."
My eyes widened and my jaw hit the floor. "Are you serious? You want me to go on a date with an Akatsuki? Are you nuts?" I whispered.
"Come on!" she squealed. "You get to annoy an Akatsuki! It's perfect! Just act like you don't know anything about the bet. Ok?"
I stared at her dumbfounded. Me and Konan had the same brain. Sure she was the smarter, sophisticated type while I was more of a loudmouth, but we still had the same brain. This plan was full proof and it would be so much fun!
I finally agreed.
"Yes! Ok! I'll introduce you two at lunch today." She walked away with a happy smile on her face.
I sullenly walked back to my friends. "What was all that about?" asked Sakura.
I shrugged my shoulders. "I apparently got a date with an Akatsuki." I said in the most natural voice I could muster.
Sakura's eye twitched, Naruto's jaw dropped and Sasuke fainted. Gosh! They are such drama queens!
The lunch bell rang. I could feel butterflies in my stomach. This is it. I have to keep cool. Then I remembered that I don't have one cool bone in my body. I gulped.
I saw the Akatsuki table. Konan saw me and waved me over. I walked towards her.
"Who's that?" asked Itachi. He had never seen her before. Then again this school was huge. He probably hadn't met half of the student body yet.
Konan smiled. "You know the friend I always hang out with?" she asked. They all looked up. They had heard so much about Konan's friend and yet they never met her. They were all interested to see who she was.
When I finally got to the table, I hugged Konan and stood patiently while she introduced everyone.
"This is Itachi, Sasuke's older brother, that's Pein, my boyfriend," she smiled when she said that. I couldn't help but to feel happy for her. He treated her so well and she was so happy with him.
She continued. "That's Kisame," Kisame looked like a shark. He stared at me like I was a fish. I was half-expecting him to attack me. "That's Tobi," she said smiling. Tobi was a small freshman boy with a little orange mask. He took it off and I started to gush in my head. He is soooo adorable! He had freckles and messy black hair. All I wanted to do was hug him. He looked up at me and waved. I waved back.
"That's Sasori," Konan said continuing. Sasori nodded his head at me. "And that is Deidara." She said, grinning.
I had heard that Deidara was hot, but this was ridiculous. He had long blonde hair, which he picked up in a ponytail. He was wearing a black beater which showed his muscles off nicely. He was wearing tight fitting jeans. He smiled at me. I get to go out with him? What did I do to deserve such a wonderful thing?
Konan nudged my arm and brought me to an empty seat at the table right next to her. She was about to start talking to me about something, when Itachi interrupted. "Excuse me, but Konan never introduced you. What is your name?" I could see the entire table lean forward.
"I'm Junsei Na Unmei." I replied.
Itachi smiled. "Pure Destiny. That's a beautiful name." he said.
"Thank you." I replied. Amazingly I didn't faint. Every guy here was hot and they were all looking at me like I was the eighth wonder of the world. Today is the best day ever! I screamed in my head.
Konan thought it was a good opportunity to say why I was here. "Oh by the way, this is who I want to go out with Deidara." She said flatly, and then continued to talk to me about something. I looked at her and pretended to not know what she was talking about.
The Akatsuki all spun their heads toward Deidara. He looked a bit shocked. "Um, ok, un." was all he could say. Itachi snickered at his stuttering, earning him a glare from Deidara.
I wondered how I looked to them. I was wearing denim shorts, red ballet flats and a red strapless blouse. I thought I looked pretty cute. But then again these were the guys who went out with the rich cheerleaders. I probably looked like a nobody. I'm a nobody who was dating one of them though! I have to rub this in Ino's face next time I see her!
I heard Deidara get up and walk towards me. He took my hand and said "Miss Junsei, I would be honored if you would go on a date with me, un." He kissed my hand softly. Everyone at the table rolled their eyes.
I thought it was sweet. "Well, alright." I said softly, my face turning red.
He smiled sweetly at me. I will meet you at the front of the school later, ok?"
"Ok." I replied. I know it's a bet after all, but I couldn't help it. I got all excited.
The bell rang and everyone went their separate ways. Deidara waved goodbye to me. I waved back. Konan had to remind me that my sole purpose was to annoy him. "I know. Geez! Can't I just be happy that I'm going out with a hot guy?"
She giggled. "Junsei and Deidara sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G…" she started to sing.
"Shut up!" I laughed.
"I've got her eating out of my hand." said Deidara, once Junsei left.
"Don't be so sure. If you mess with her or break her heart, you'll have to answer to Konan." said Pein. "And I'm sure you wouldn't like Konan angry."
Deidara didn't think about that. Ok so no "messing around" with Junsei. He could handle that.
