Pure White Snow
"Naruto," the little ten-year-old redhead pointed to the sky, towards the falling white. "Why is sugar falling from the sky? And why is it cold?" he asked, completely confused.
The blonde giggled as he replied, "Gaara, its called snow. It isn't sugar." He swung his feet casually, kicking away the flakes that had landed near his feet.
His imaginary brows furrowed as he held out his bare hands. A white fluff landed in his palms and quickly melted at the touch. The now new droplet of water slid down his wrist and into his sleeve. He yelped slightly at the cold that attacked him from the inside. "It turned into water!" he exclaimed, completely shocked.
Unable to contain his amusement, he burst out laughing at his friend's cute reaction, nearly falling off the bench. The paler boy pouted and flushed lightly as he sat still, waiting for the tanned boy to stop laughing at him.
"It's not funny," he mumbled sheepishly as he looked down at his boots.
"No, it's not," the other agreed, but grinned and added, "its cute!"
Gaara blushed a little brighter as he pouted once more. "Well, what is snow?" he muttered in embarrassment.
Naruto stopped and looked up, thinking for an answer. A few moments later, he replied, "Snow shows when winter comes. When it gets really, really cold, all the rain turns to snow!" he thought again, "Their like really soft falling pieces of ice."
"But ice isn't soft," the redhead pointed out, still confused.
"Well, snow is. And snow is really pretty too!" He motioned his hands to the scenery splayed out before them.
The pure white blanket spread over the hills evenly, sparkling elegantly under the winter sun. The snowflakes fell slowly and gracefully with barely visible patterns on each one. It was blindingly bright, but so beautiful at the same time.
Completely mesmerized, Gaara almost didn't hear what Naruto was going to say.
"Did you know that no two snowflakes are identical?"
The redhead looked at his friend like he was crazy, "That's impossible! There's bound to be a match out there!"
The blonde shook his head, "I don't think so."
He cocked his head to the side, "Why?"
"Because snowflakes are kinda like people. There might be some people that are almost the same. But no one is exactly the same. Because there are no clones. It's like snowflakes! They're not cloned, they have their differences!"
The pale boy thought about it for a while before seeing why his companion thought this way. He nodded in response, "I guess that makes sense…"
"It does make sense!" the whiskered boy cried out, mocking hurt before grinning playfully, "I really like snow."
"Yeah, I think I do too," he replied, looking up into the sky of floating polka dots.
"Let's make snow angels!" Naruto shouted suddenly as he pulled his friend off the bench and into the white blanket. Gaara yelped at the freezing temperature that assaulted his back before growling and pulling the blonde into the snow with him.
It was his turn to yelp in shiver, but before long, they began wrestling playfully in the snow, giggling and smiling¸ despite the cold.
They were simply two friends playing in the snow.
