DISCLAIMER- I don't own Naruto, she/he belongs to Masashi Kishimoto.

OMG I'm soooo happy! I got some reviews! And I was happy.

I'm really sorry about my lateness AGAIN but I accidentally threw my laptop across the room in frustration and may have broken half of the keys. This resulted in my lack of typing ability and I was incapable of logging into my Account. SOWY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE!

Sasuke woke to the early sounding of his alarm. Itachi must have set it for him. Internally he thanked him for it. Rolling over Sasuke cleared his mind of all previous thoughts. This time he set it on Naruto and the course of winning her back. He vowed to stay strong and not give up, ever. Not even under extreme circumstances.

After finally convincing himself to exit the warm confides of his bed, Sasuke headed downstairs to get a cup of coffee. He drank the hot cup in seconds before grabbing his coat and exiting the large house. He snatched his phone from his pocket and dialled the number of Suigetsu.

"Oi, Sasuke?" The slimy character answered.

"I can't hang with you today bro." Sasuke grunted into the small phone.

"But Sasuke… I found us some top quality hoes." Suigetsu pleaded. "You can't bail on me now."

"I have to." Sasuke moaned, "It's my only change to get Naru back."

"Oh really? I thought you didn't care about her? Isn't she just a cheap slut?"

"Don't say that about her!" Sasuke all but screamed into the mobile.

"It's what you said." Suigetsu defended.

"But I was wrong." Sasuke sighed, "I was wrong from the start."

"What are you talking about bro?"

"That blonde," Sasuke grunted, "he's her cousin."

"Oh dude… You're an Arse." He grunted.

"I know. And now I have got to make things right."

"Okay bro, I'm just a little bit disappointed that I'm losing my wingman." Suigetsu grunted back.

"Sure you are." Sasuke closed the tiny phone and thrust his keys into the navy blue sports car, starting the engine. It came to life with a wild roar and Sasuke was speeding down the road in the wink of an eye.

The car came to a sudden halt in front of the apartment belonging to his beloved Naruto. He sighed once more before getting out from the vehicle and walking up the stairs to her front door.

His fist made a RAT TAT on the door and it slowly creaked open.

Naruto wakes to the banging on her door. She sighs and pulls her dressing gown over her minimal clothing and walks to the door of her apartment.

"I'm pretty sure that I made it quite clear that I didn't want to see you, Sasuke." The boy stood on her doorstep holding a large bunch of roses, each a unique colour.

"Let me explain Naru-" He was cut off by the slamming of a door in his face.

"I don't care." She growled through the wooden barrier, "I'm over this."

"But I'm not Naru! I was wrong!" He wasn't at all surprised to see the door reopening and Naruto's aggravated face staring back at him.

"Now you've done it!" she raged, "You knew I couldn't ignore that statement. Even if you don't mean it."

"But I do, Naru." Sasuke moaned, pleading.

"Come in." Naru sighed, still angry at his sudden visit. "Do you want some tea?" she led Sasuke into the kitchenette.

"Sure." Sasuke sighed, "Strong black."

"I know how you want your coffee." Nsaru chuckled.

"You also know what else I want." Naru had almost no time to react before an arm shot out and wrapped tightly around her waist.

"Back off Sasuke!" she growled, shooting him another glare.

"Please Nar, I really am sorry." He couldn't help but cringe at the pleading sound of his voice.

"I really don't care Sasuke." She muttered, unwrapping his limb from her waist and pouring the hot water into a porcelain mug. She lifted the tea bag and dipped it a couple of times before throwing it in the bin. "Here." She handed the mug to Sasuke.

"Naru…" he said, pausing when she waved him off, "please."

"Sorry Sasuke." She said, ushering him to the door. "No." And with that, she slammed the door, shutting him off from her apartment complex.

A tear escaped Naru's blue eyes and rolled down her cheek. She sighed and picked up her phone.

She silently punched in the numbers and waited for the phone to dial.

"Hello?" the gruff voice sounded through the phone.

"Hi, Jiraiya?" She cheered, wiping her tears. "What have we got planned for today?"

"Just a photo shoot." He grunted back, "You know, the usual."

"Yeah, yeah. Smile here, wink there. The usual. K, thanks." She pressed the 'end' button and sighed once more. Just as she was about to put down her phone she got another call.

"Yep?" she chirped into the receiver.

"Hi Naru?" Deidara's smooth voice called through the phone. "You free today?"

"Actually, I have a photo shoot to go to but they usually end before 5." She said, holding the phone between her ear and shoulder.

"Then would you like to come to Akatsuki again? The boys were asking for you yesterday."

Naru chuckled before nodding her head vigorously.

"Oi Nar? Is that a yes? Are you nodding?"

"Oh Yeah, Dei-chan. Of course." She smiled.

"Awesome, can I meet you there then?"

"Sure. I'll be there."

"Itachi!" Sasuke crowed.

"Yes, adorable younger brother of mine?" The taller man sang.

"Do you want to hang out tonight?" Sasuke sighed.

Itachi froze. This was the first time in years that Sasuke had shown any attempt to make emotional contact with his brother. "What happened?"

"I met up with Naru today." Sasuke sighed again.

"Did you have great make up sex and wish to gloat little brother?" Itachi sighed, dropping hopes of his brother's emotions.

"No. She kicked me out."

"So you wish for me to help cheer you up?" Itachi grinned.

"Yes please." Sasuke hated being nice to his brother but he felt that he had no one else to relate to.

"Okay younger brother, on one condition." Itachi mused.

"That being?"

"That you come with me to Akatsuki tonight."

"And hang out with your lame ass friends?" Sasuke frowned, remembering the time that Kakuzu had stolen his wallet and forced him to pay for it back.

"Yes." Itachi smiled triumphantly.

"Okay." Sasuke sighed, "But only because I'm extremely lonely."

"I know Sasuke. I know."

I can't promise that I will update really soon but I will try to update ASAP. I have just started a really complex study method though and will be incapable of writing everyday, possibly not even every week.

I know, I know. I'm a terrible Author. I neglect my wonderful readers :'(

I thank you all for staying with me this long. Please, don't leave me. I will continue this story until I Die and THAT is a promise!

If you REVIEW more, I might remember to post sooner… I'm just sayin'
