Prompt: Socks

The first thing Sakura buys with her very first Genin paycheque is a pair of socks. They're dark blue with tiny orange and white stars on them.

Naruto just laughs when he finds out. Sasuke rolls his eyes.

Ino says, "If that's what makes you happy, Forehead," which pleases and irritates Sakura in equal measure because they're not friends-they're rivals.

Kakashi-sensei looks at the socks for a long time and says, "There's no red."

"It would look funny," she says.

"Where are you, then?"

Sakura beams at him. "I wear them."

(He gets it, even if the others don't.)
