Chapter 25: Epilogue

4 Years Later

It was the last time that Minato could run for mayor and everyone was gathered in the Namikaze's house, hoping that their gathering would turn into a celebration party. It was nerve wrecking for Minato; though it was likely that he would win, he always got nervous when the results were about to be announced. "I'm sure that you'll win," Itachi told the oldest Namikaze.

"Thanks," Minato replied. "I hope you're right," he smiled.

"People in this city love you," Itachi reminded him. "Plus it's not like you have very good competition," he gave something that was between a smirk and a smile. "If what happened during your last election didn't make you lose, I don't think that you'll lose this one," he pointed out. Minato just smiled and nodded in response.

Kyuubi walked over to them, wondering why it seemed like the two stopped talking when he came over. "What are you two talking about?" Kyuubi asked as he wrapped his arm around Itachi's shoulder.

"You," Itachi smirked, messing with the redhead. "Your father was just telling embarrassing stories about you," he continued before picking up his drink and taking a drink. He seemed so nonchalant about it that it made Kyuubi think that he was telling the truth. "I wouldn't have believed it if he hadn't shown me the pictures," he added.

"Dad please tell me that you didn't tell him about the streaking incident," he pleaded, his hand moving from Itachi's shoulder to run through his hair. "I told you that I was drunk, you didn't have to take pictures of it," he told him. "It was a dare and didn't mean to run into the wrong house afterwards. I mean it's bad enough that the old lady called the cops, you don't have to tell Itachi too," he said, clearly embarrassed by the thought of his father telling stories about him.

"Kyuubi he was messing with you," Minato told him calmly. "I didn't tell him embarrassing stories about you," he informed his son. "We were talking about the election," he said as he stood up from his seat at the kitchen counter. "Now if you excuse me, I'm going to mingle with my colleagues," he added before walking away.

Kyuubi's eyes had widened at that point, "Damn it." He looked at Itachi and said, "Forget I said that." Itachi chuckled, but didn't say anything.

Meanwhile, in the living room, Naruto and Sasuke sat on couch. "You look so thrilled to be here," the blond commented as he looked at his boyfriend.

Sasuke was just staring at the TV, interested at the party around him. "You know how I feel about people," he said, not amused with Naruto's sarcasm.

"We'll be out of here shortly after the results are announced," Naruto promised. "So can you at least pretend like you're having a good time?" he asked.

"Yeah, whatever," Sasuke mumbled, not happy about having to possibly talk to other people. Sasuke was saved though, as the TV interrupted all talking by announcing that the results were in.

The man droned on about the other elections going around the city, before finally announcing the results for mayor. "The winner for the Mayor of Konoha is Minato Namikaze," he announced. The room cheered and congratulated the blond man.


"I'm exhausted," Kyuubi said as he sat down on Itachi's couch. They had just gotten back from the election party and both were just ready to relax. It was surprising how easily just talking to people could wear a person out.

Itachi walked into the living room with two drinks in his hand, he set them on the table in front of Kyuubi as he sat next to the redhead. "Are you going to go home or stay here for the night?" he asked. The question didn't really need to be asked, they both knew what the answer would be.

"I'll stay here," Kyuubi answered, causing Itachi to nod. After a moment of silence, Kyuubi said, "Let's go to bed. I don't know about you, but I'm tired." Once again, Itachi nodded. They both stood up and made their way to Itachi's bedroom.

In the bedroom, Itachi started to strip off his shirt. Kyuubi just watched him, staring at the man's body. No matter how many times he saw it, he still found himself amazed by how beautiful the man was. Kyuubi walked over to him, wrapping his arms around Itachi's bare midsection. "Thank you for coming tonight," he said softly.

"You don't have to thank me," Itachi said. "That's the kind of things boyfriends are supposed to do," he pointed out, moving Kyuubi's hair out of his face.

"True, but I know how you aren't particularly fond of meeting new people," he sad as he started to kiss the other man's neck. "Unless it's business oriented of course," he continued. He stopped kissing his neck and looked into his eyes, "I feel as if I should make it up to you."

"I thought you were tired," Itachi smirked.

"You should know that I'm never too tired when it comes to sex," he answered lustfully. "So let's get the rest of those clothes off of you," he smiled as he pulled him towards the bed.


Naruto and Sasuke had left the party soon after the results were announced. Naruto knew that Sasuke wasn't a partier, so he got them away from the party as soon as he could. However, he expected a special thank you in return, which was how they ended up naked in their bed. Sasuke was lying on his stomach, his eyes closed and head on the pillow, turned away from the blond. Naruto was turned sideways, propped up on his elbow as his other hand ran up and down Sasuke's back.

"If you're trying to make it so that I can't fall asleep you're succeeding," Sasuke said as he turned onto his back and looked at the blond.

"Good," Naruto said with a smile. His eyes wandered over what he could see of Sasuke's body. The blanked began at the bottom of the other man's back and was bunched up so that it ended high on his thigh. "Remember when I asked you to pose nude for me?" he asked.

"Where did that come from?" Sasuke asked, wondering why Naruto was bringing it up. "That was four years ago," he pointed out.

"I know, but looking at you like this makes me want to take a picture," he replied. "Would you let me take a picture?" he asked.

"Why do you need a picture? You can see me naked any day you want," he said, which was his way of saying no.

"What if I asked you to marry me?" he asked. "Would you let me take a picture of you naked then?" he asked with a grin.

Sasuke quickly sat up, looking at him in surprise. "What are you trying to say Naruto?" he asked cautiously.

The blond sat up with a smile on his face as he said, "Marry me." Sasuke was shocked and it showed. "I'm serious," Naruto said.

Sasuke was speechless, he never expected Naruto to propose. He thought that moving in together was as far as their relationship would go, no matter how long it lasted. He just nodded, finding it difficult to form words. He pulled him into a kiss.

"So I take that as a yes," Naruto grinned.

"Yeah, that's a yes," Sasuke said with a rare smile spreading across his face.

"And what about posing nude for me?" Naruto joked as pushed Sasuke onto his back. He was hovering over him, lust filling his eyes.

"Only if I get a naked photo of you," Sasuke replied before pulling Naruto down for a kiss.

"I think that can be arranged," the blond grinned and then leaned down to innate another kiss. "You ready for round two?" he asked as his kisses started going elsewhere.

"Always," Sasuke replied eagerly.

The End.

What do you think? I'm kind of sad this story is over, but I feel this is a good place to end it.
