Author's Note: This was initially going to be a small drabble, hence why it seems more rushed in the beginning.


Originality


Haruno Sakura expected something completely different when her boyfriend of five years had returned from Tetsu no Kuni, home of the best jewelers around, and asked her out on a date. The look in his eyes had indicated that he had something planned, and her mother's recent conversation of why the twenty-two years olds hadn't gotten married yet echoed in her head all day as she prepared.

Call her a dreamer but she had been hoping that maybe the blond had lied about being sent on a mission to the land of the Samurai so he could go pick up a custom made ring, which he would then present to her as he knelt down and proposed. She couldn't help it, she was a hopeless romantic at heart.

That's why she felt absolutely stupid for having dressed up for the date only to be taken to Ichiraku's—'A ramen stand for crying out loud! At least take a second to rethink your dinner plans when your girlfriend is all dressed up!'—for a simple meal. Simple meaning that the blond seemed to have forgotten anything and everything he knew about manners during his time away.

Then he had taken her on a stroll through the park and when he stopped them in front of the fountain she couldn't help but get her hopes up that maybe this was it. It had even started to get romantic when he wrapped her in his warm embrace before leaning down to kiss her.

When their kissing began to get more fervent by the second she had pulled back, in case he had forgotten what he was going to ask, like she almost had.

"Naruto, is there anything you might be forgetting?" Sakura tried, holding her breath as she stared up at two confused sapphire orbs. "Anything you might want to ask?"

He took a moment, a moment longer than he should have needed, to think before his face light up and she awaited his question in anticipation.

"Is it safe?"

"Yes! Of course—wait. What?"

"Is it safe to cum inside?" he repeated, clearly confused by her outburst.

"Is that why you brought me out here? A late night public quickie?" Sakura asked through gritted teeth.

"No," Naruto began, calming the rosette slightly, "but when we got here I figured, why not?"

Normally Sakura would've been game for some intimacy with her boyfriend, especially after he had just come back from a rather long mission. However, at the moment she couldn't help but be furious with the blond. It wasn't really his fault that she was a hopeless romantic, but then again he was the one always lecturing to others about reading the atmosphere.

"You jerk!" Sakura yelled before she turned around and stomped off, leaving a dumbfounded Naruto standing alone in the middle of the park.

Needless to say he had slept on the couch that night. Again, unfair of her but Sakura needed a while to get over her disappointment.


That was why, currently, Sakura regarded her anxious boyfriend with impatience after he had asked to borrow her from the Genin team she had been training.

"Did I do something wrong, Sakura-chan?" Naruto asked, honestly worried about what the cause of his girlfriend's ill temper was.

Sakura knew she should just sigh, tell him it was nothing and kiss his worry away, seeing as it was her fault for reading so much from a simple date request. But for some reason she couldn't help but become even more frustrated at his complete cluelessness.

"A full day to think and you still don't have a clue?" she questioned, her fists trembling at her sides. Why was she so worked up? So what if Naruto didn't want to marry her, he was only the love of her life. Aforementioned blond took a step back out of an old instinct.

"I'm sorry, Sakura-chan. I don't know what I did but if you would just tell me, I'll fix it." the sincerity of his words made Sakura feel even worse, but it seemed her mouth didn't need her permission to speak today.

"If you're too stupid to figure it out than just leave me alone!" she turned to walk away, in an attempt to prevent herself from saying something else she didn't mean when she felt a strong pair of arms wrap around her from behind before she was pressed against a familiar firm chest.

"You know I'm not the brains in our relationship, love." Naruto spoke against her hair, his breath tickling the back of her ear making her shiver. "Please tell me what's wrong, I don't like it when you're mad at me and I don't know why. At least when I know, I know how to fix it."

Sakura was silent for a moment before she answered, her mouth finally back under her control. "You're going to think its stupid, Naruto, but I thought you were going to propose. I prepared myself for it but after waiting all night and you didn't I just felt so angry at myself that I blamed you."

Naruto was quiet for a second before he laughed.

'That bastard, he's laughing!' Sakura thought furiously, turning to look at the blond. He tried to calm himself down but only ended up beginning again. "And what, may I ask, is so funny?"

"I'm sorry, Sakura-chan, but you have to admit, that's pretty funny." Naruto gasped out, failing to notice the green eyes that narrowed at him dangerously.

"No, it isn't." Sakura ground out, feeling her anger, now justly placed, grow with every breath the blond took.

"Aw, come on. I return from a mission, you think that I went to get you a ring and wait all night for me to propose? That's funny."

Okay, that just plain hurt. Adding that to the growing flame that was her anger, Sakura forced a false smile on her face.

"Oh yeah, that is funny." she said, moving her hand to grab Naruto's chin with her fingers. "You know what else is funny?" Naruto looked at her expectantly, waiting for her to indulge him. "Watching you soar through the air!"

Her thumb under his chin flipped upwards, sending the insensitive blond flying into the air comically. Well, maybe he didn't find it as amusing as she did, but at least to her it was funny. One of her students must have though so as well for she heard his shout.

"Whoa! Sensei just launched her boyfriend into the air!" Toshiro exclaimed, clutching his sides as he laughed, his finger pointing in the direction the blond had flown, straight up.

"I told you Sakura-sensei was mean." the other male of the team, Yuusuke whimpered, cowering behind the only girl on the team, who stared at Sakura with admiration in her eyes.

"Alright, guys, back to training!" Sakura ordered, feeling much better, knowing Naruto knew how to land safely. He was a ninja, after all. Suddenly Mina gasped, pointing at the sky.

"Sakura-shishou, look!" The rosette turned to glance towards what the girl was point at, figuring it must be Naruto, when she froze and did a double take.

High up in the sky at least a few hundred Naruto clones fell in unison. But that wasn't what had caught Sakura off guard.

"Oh, Naruto." Sakura gasped, her hand flying to clover her mouth as tears gathered in the corner of her eyes. Her knees felt weak and she forgot how to breath for a second.

It was unmistakable. The plummeting mass of clones had maneuvered themselves so that they spelled, very clearly;

MARRY ME SAKURA!

Her student's squeal didn't even reach her ears as the rosette watched Naruto use an Odama Rasengan to break his fall before jumping away, landing in a kneel in front of her, a dark navy box in his hand.

"I'm sorry I was mean, Sakura-chan, but I really wanted to use that trick, and Gaara was going to come over next week to help me do it, but I figured now was the perfect moment—"

"Yes!" Sakura croaked, tears of happiness sliding down her cheeks. Naruto raised an eyebrow, amused.

"I haven't asked you, yet, Sakura-chan." Naruto chuckled, opening the box to reveal a simple ring with green crystal shards organized to resemble a flower. "Haruno Sakura, will you mar—"

Sakura threw herself into Naruto's arms, burying her face into his chest as she sobbed, "Yes! Yes! Yes!"

The blond held her as she cried out in joy, feeling a stinging sensation in his own eyes. He had been scared—terrified to ask her and despite his calm cheerful demeanor he had been a nervous wreck as he landed before her. When the woman in his arms had finally calmed down enough he pulled back so he could slip the ring on her finger.

As soon as it was on Sakura kissed Naruto so passionately he felt dazed. When he regained his senses he found Sakura admiring the silver band on her finger.

"Those are shards of the first Hokage's necklace, Sakura-chan." Naruto explained. "They were returned to me after the Pein invasion but they just sat in a box at home. So I decided to use them to make a centerpiece for the ring I planned to give you. I went to Tetsu no kuni to make it myself, so I'm sorry if it's a little sloppy."

"It's beautiful, Naruto." Sakura reassured him, truthfully, still staring at the ring on her finger. It all felt so surreal. "I'm not dreaming, am I?"

"If you are, don't wake me up." Naruto chuckled, wrapping his arms around Sakura's waist. "I love you, Sakura-chan. You have no idea how happy I am right now."

Sakura smiled up at the blue eyes regarding her. "Yes I do, if it's anything like how I feel." Sakura glanced up and saw her Genin team staring at them. Smiling, she turned and wrapped an arm around Naruto's neck, whispering something so that only he would hear. A second later the newly engaged couple disappeared in a burst of smoke.

"Sensei ditched us!" Toshiro stated the obvious. "I'm so telling Hokage-sa—Ow!"

"Shut up, Shiro. Can't you appreciate how romantic that was?" Mina chided, glaring at the white haired teen. Her glare soon turned into a blush. "When are you going to propose to me? After seeing Naruto-san's proposal I expect you to do better!"

"Oh, hell naw; get the hell outta here! Who would want a flat chested girl like you!" Toshiro was sporting a blush of his own.

"What did you say?"

"Oh shit!"

Yuusuke couldn't help but roll his eyes at his teammates' actions. Watching the green haired girl chase her self proclaimed boyfriend, he couldn't help but thank god he was gay. Girls were too... Bothersome.


"Yes, Ino, I'm wearing it right now." Sakura spoke on the phone, sitting on the edge of her bed, nude. Naruto lay behind her, admiring her backside. "No, I haven't shown anyone else."

'How could you when we haven't even left the bed for the last three hours?' the blond mused, shifting to wrap an arm around his fiancé's waist, pulling her down on the bed.

"No, you can't come over right now." Sakura said when she felt Naruto's arousal poke her thigh. "I'll stop by tomorrow and show you, okay? How did he ask?" Sakura bit her lip so suppress her moan as Naruto pushed himself inside of her. "I-I'll tell you tomorrow, just know he's still the most hyperactive, knuckle-headed unpredictable ninja. Ohh~k-kay, Ino, Bye!"

"Finally." Naruto murmured against her shoulder, hissing when she smacked his hip.

"You couldn't wait five minutes?" Sakura admonished, the reprimand not having nearly as much effect as it would were she clothed and not moaning as he worked himself inside of her.

"Says the woman who pulled my dick out of my pants not ten feet away from her students." Naruto quipped, stopping his movements cold, his hands holding Sakura's hips still. "Is that any way to behave around children, Sakura-chan?"

"Ohh... I don't know, please don't stop, Naruto." Sakura begged, squirming against him. The blond smirked before fulfilling her request.

"Anything for my lovely soon-to-be wife."


End?


Authors Note: Just a quick one-shot I came up with, refined with help from my buddy, Kyuubi's Naruto and Sakura. My initial idea was to have Naruto do the same thing but with help from Gaara and his sand. But then we came up with the idea of Sakura punching him into the air and him doing this. I think it's something he would try. I hope I am the first to use this method, as it would help make my title match even better.
