"This place really is a mess..." Jiraiya never could find the time to do the cleaning himself and so today, he had employed the help of Nagato. Several hours of sweeping dust under the carpet later and all that was left was to remove Yahiko's stuff from the kitchen table.

"NAGATO STOP TOUCHING MY MELONS!" Yahiko yelled, the red-haired boy practically jumped out of his skin, and Jiraiya to choked on his own spit "...what? Somethin' wrong with my melons sensei?"

"No...no, they're lovely." from that day onwards, Jiraiya never looked at Yahiko the same way.
