Pairing: Konohamaru Sarutobi & Naruto Uzumaki
Summary: Konohamaru is sick and tired of watching Naruto continuously asking that damned traitor Uchiha out on a date and always being rejected in return. Sasuke didn't deserve someone as loving and caring as his blond ANBU captain damn it! And it was about time Naruto learned that too.
Chapter 1: Admiration from Afar
"C'mon Sasuke! Date me!" The raven in question ignored the whiny voice and kept his focus on reading over his mission report. The young blond in front of him leaned over his desk and grinned suggestively at him, licking his pink lips enticingly. Not that Sasuke would have noticed since the paper he was holding up was covering the idiot's face.
"I'll make it worth your while." The blond continued on in a sultry tone of voice while smirking. Sasuke's eye twitched and his hold on the paper tightened, crinkling the crisp sheets of paper.
"You're so cute when you're pissed, Sasu-chan!" Naruto cooed happily, flattening his hands under his chin and giving his raven haired friend a toothy smile.
Sasuke slammed his hands on his desk and abruptly stood up, letting the wooden chair he had been sitting on fall to the ground with a clatter. Onyx eyes glared down at a surprised Naruto and Sasuke found himself growling menacingly at him, an evil glint shining in his eyes as he leered down at the blond who shrunk back away from him.
"Naruto, for the last millionth time! No! I'm not gay!"
The blond ANBU captain sat up straight in his chair, crossing his arms and then proceeded to pout at the plain white wall across from him. He scowled and glanced over at Sasuke, tapping his fingers on the his crook of his elbow.
"'Coulda fooled me with that haircut of yours...looks like a chicken's ass." Naruto grumbled lowly under his breath.
Sasuke walked around his desk and glowered at the uneasy blond in front of him. Naruto laughed sheepishly and scratched his whiskered cheek nervously while a bead of sweat rolled down the side of his face.
"Ah-ha-ha! I'm sorry Sasuke, I didn't mean it!"
A growl and more nervous laughter.
"Please Sasuke, don't do it! Think rationally now!"
An evil smirk followed by a whimper.
The young Uchiha crouched down and wrapped his arms around Naruto's legs. He quickly stood up and smirked when Naruto lost his balance and landed on his shoulder with an "oomph". He stepped out of his office and ignored the odd stares he received from the other shinobi's. Some of them laughed and shook their head, already used to such behavior from their two top ANBU captains. Sasuke finally spotted the office door he was looking for and opened it. The man at the desk looked up and sighed when he saw the blond he was carrying like a sack of (annoying and gay) potatoes.
"Konohamaru," Sasuke began, but fell silent when a hand was raised.
"Yeah, yeah, I'm on it." He got up and caught his captain bridal-style as Sasuke dropped him without a second though. As the Uchiha went to leave, Naruto started squirming around in Konohamaru's arms, but the raven held onto him tightly until he was sure Sasuke had made it into his office. He finally let Naruto jump out of his arms after five whole minutes of restraining him and went back to his paperwork.
"Konohamaru! Why'd you let him get away? You're supposed to be helping me!" Naruto whined while sitting on the bare part of the mahogany desk. Konohamaru rolled his eyes.
"I don't know what you see in him."
Naruto put a finger to his chin and concentrated on which attributes he liked about Sasuke. Konohamaru glanced up at him and could help but think Naruto was cute when he tried to focus on one thing. The way his little pink tongue stuck out slightly and how his slender blond eyebrows would furrow together in concentration. It would have been a lot more cuter if he had been thinking of something other than the stupid good-for-nothing Uchiha.
Konohamaru despised the fact that Naruto was in love- obsession more like it -with that traitorous bastard. The damned asshole returned two years ago and both Naruto and he had become ANBU members right after Sasuke had finished with the three years of constant surveillance by ANBU and could finally take on other missions rather than the D-ranked ones. A year later, they had risen to the ranks of Konoha's best ANBU captains.
Konohamaru had joined the blond's squad three months ago, and he already hated it. Don't get him wrong, he loved being Naruto's right hand man, especially since the blond looked so damn sexy in his ANBU uniform. He found it particularly hard to look away when Naruto was drenched in blood, but he just didn't like the fact that every goddamn day the young ANBU captain found it obligatory to flirt with the bastard Uchiha.
"He's hot, he's got some rock-hard pecs, he has a HUGE dic-"
"Okay! Too much information there!" He yelled before the blond could finish his sentence. Konohamaru knew what Naruto was about to say and he didn't want to hear it.
"What I mean is that I don't know what you see in him. Meaning why are you so obsessed over a person who has the emotions of a rock?" Naruto frowned at the insult directed at his current infatuation.
"You only say that because you don't like him." Naruto countered and Konohamaru shook his head.
"That too, but I also say it because he doesn't deserve you after all that he did. You can do better than that bastard."
Naruto smiled at him and ruffled his hair.
"Aw, thanks 'Maru!"
The ANBU member blushed and swatted the offending hand away from his hair. He hated being treated like a child, especially by his crush. He was a man dammit, and he should be treated as such!
"I'm not a kid anymore, Naruto!"
The blond jumped off the desk and grinned at him. Konohamaru watched how the whisker-like marks on Naruto's cheeks would curve. It made his captain look more like a fox, and the way his eyes would close and the cute dimples that would appear on his cheeks when he smiled. It was so adorable.
"You'll always be a kid to me!" Naruto sing-songed as he walked to the door. Konohamaru growled low in his throat.
"Just watch! One day I'll prove to you that I'm not a kid!" He proclaimed while standing up and pointing a shaking finger at Naruto, his face a tomato red. The blond just hummed and waved at him before shutting the door. The brunette let out a tired sigh.
"Damn that idiot..."
"Oi, Kakashi! Are you busy?" Naruto called, looking up at his ex-sensei calmly while folding his arms across his chest.
The silver haired jonin on the sakura tree snapped his new edition of 'Make-Out Violence' closed and looked tiredly down at his favorite ex-student, making a half-assed attempt to wave lazily down at him. His eye crinkled into an upside down u-shape, the only sign on his face that he was actually really acknowledging the blond below.
"Ah, Naruto-chan! What do I owe this fine pleasur-"
"Oh, save it Kaka-sensei! I know you're just itching to get rid of me so that you can read your little perverted book!" Naruto teased while jumping onto the branch that his old sensei was on and took a seat next to him. The blond heaved one of his legs over the branch so that he could face his friend. He put his head on the bark to keep himself balanced then finally looked at Kakashi.
"I'm hurt Naruto," The jonin put a hand over his heart in mock hurt, his voice dripping with dry sarcasm, "that you would think so poorly of your dear old sensei." Naruto rolled his eyes and snorted.
"Anyways, I wanted to ask you something." Naruto stared sternly at him, any sense of humor gone from his voice replacing it with seriousness. Kakashi's visible eyebrow raised at that and he wondered what was so important to have the usual bouncing ball of sunshine in such a stern mood.
"And what might that be?"
Naruto leaned in, a shit-eating grin on his face slowly forming on his lips and threatening to split his face in half. Only once their noses were practically touching did Naruto finally speak. The blond took a deep breath and paused dramatically. Kakashi just stared into mischievous blue eyes curiously. Now that he thought about it, the blond was always the strange one in the group.
"What do you want for you birthday?"
Was that why the blond was all hyped up about? The copy-cat ninja put a hand on Naruto's grinning face and pushed him away from his personal space roughly. He stared at the blond once more and stifled his sigh. If Naruto had a fox tail, he was certain that it would be wagging happily by now.
"Naruto, it's not really necess-"
"Bullshit! It is totally necessary! A person only turns forty-eight once in their life!" Kakashi's eyebrow twitched and he swore he heard a blood vessel pop.
"Naruto...I'm thirty-six." The blond ANBU captain blinked at the statement and pinched his sensei's cloth-covered cheek, pulling the skin slightly.
"Are you sure? 'Cuz you look like your-"
"Don't you have somewhere to be, Naruto?" Kakashi interrupted him, his temple already throbbing on the corner of his forehead. The blond in question beamed up at him and shook his head as a negative.
"Nope! Not until you tell me what you want for your birthday, Kaka-sensei!"
Kakashi pinched the bridge of his nose. Kami-sama knew how much he loved the blond idiot before him, but he was just so damn stubborn! The jonin's lips quirked upwards slightly at a thought that suddenly entered his mind.
'Just like his mother,' Kakashi thought fondly.
"Naruto, I'm not your sensei anymore and my bloody birthday isn't until a month from now." The blond shrugged and smiled at him brightly.
"I know you aren't, but you'll always be the loving-but-perverted-sensei-who-reads-porn to me, and still! I want to be prepared for when it comes!"
Kakashi sighed and before Naruto could stop him, the sneaky jonin 'poofed' out of there.
"Damn you, Kakashiiiii!"
"Do you really think it'll work, Moegi?"
"Of course! I'm one-hundred percent sure Naruto-taichou will agree!" Konohamaru didn't seem convinced by the face he was pulling. The orange-haired ANBU member sighed exasperatedly at him. The raven could go into war without hesitation, but when it came to asking his captain out on an innocent lunch date, he immediately chickened out!
"What if he's not...interested in me?" Konohamaru continued on doubtfully, eyeing Moegi suspiciously.
Her once pig-tailed hair was now in a curly pony-tail and her hairline was at the side. The right side of her bangs had been cut short and it made a twirl down the side of her beautiful face. Her once ago innocent wide maple eyes were now sharp and they were looking at him, clearly frustrated. Her skin complexion had not darkened and was still that same soft milky skin of hers. As Sakura always liked to say, Moegi had grown into a fine young woman.
The bright-headed female had joined ANBU together with him and Udon. Who, speaking of which, had finally grown out of his runny nose. Konohamaru snapped out of his thoughts when Moegi spoke in her usual feminine tone.
"This is why your asking him to have lunch with you, idiot! My plans are always full proof, that is, if you don't mess things up. Once he's fed up with Sasuke's countless rejections, he's going to need someone to be there for him! And who better than the guy who is always with him at lunch!" Konohamaru winced at her volume. He bit his lip and furrowed his eyebrows.
"So...I'm just a rebound?" Moegi slapped her forehead.
"Does it matter? You'll finally be able to have him!"
"I don't know Moegi...I don't want to be just some-"
"You're not going to be just some rebound Konohamaru! He's going to fall in love with you and you'll finally be together with him!" The raven was about to speak, but Udon, who had suddenly come into the lounge, beat him to the punch.
"She's right Konohamaru. Wouldn't you rather be able to hold him, kiss him, touch him, fu-"
"Watch yourself, Udon." The raven hissed, glaring at his friend. Udon just shrugged in return.
"Hey, I'm just saying. If you don't hurry up and make your move, I might just have to ask him myself." The brunette smirked while licking his lips. Konohamaru growled at him. He had totally forgotten all about his captain's many suitors. Most of them being the same sex as him. He glanced at Udon one more time and growled warningly at him once again.
Udon had grown up to be quite handsome despite how awkward he had looked when he was younger. The man had cut his light-brow hair so that it fell in layers around his head. He had bought rectangular, black-rimmed glasses that gave him the perfect 'I'm-smart-but-bad-ass' look that seemed to make the ladies go weak in the knees. His past baby-fat had disappeared and left behind a muscular jaw and a well-rounded chin.
Konohamaru himself wasn't so bad-looking either. His jet-black hair that somehow liked to defy gravity had now grown out pointing frontward instead of it's past backward. He had also let it grow out some more and his baby-fat had left as well. A strong jaw and high cheek-bones were left in it's place.
"Just think, once you have him in your reach, you'll be able to do what you've only fantasized about doing. To be able to caress every inch of his unmarked, caramel skin and kiss every dip and curve of his body. To finally be able to feel his hot, anal walls clench tightly around your har-"
"Gotta go!" The raven ran out of the lounge and towards the restroom almost as fast as the speed of light, all the while sheathing his privates. Udon raised an eyebrow at his cackling teammate.
"Where'd you get that from?" He questioned while shifting uncomfortably in his seat, folding one of his legs across the other one to hide the fast forming boner he was getting from the mental images. She smirked and winked at him.
"I heard him talk in his sleep once during a joint mission." She said simply, grinning like a madman.
