A/N: I guess my surprise isn't really a surprise when you guys pretty much already know or guess what it is haha.
Or maybe I should have said TWO surprises.
PLEASE read the VERY end of the chapter. I have a very important suprise at the end!
DISCLAIMER: Kishimoto owns Naruto… he really does
"I think I'll sleep in today. I don't feel well." Naruto announced. He watched Sasuke stop in the middle of buttoning his shirt and leans over him. Sasuke's hand pressed against his forward and neck to check for any signs of a fever. Naruto smiled and pushed his husband's hand away. "I'll be fine Sasuke. It's just a little stomach ache." He assured.
Sasuke frowned but kissed his wife on the lips. "Are you sure? You never let a little stomachache prevent you from getting up from bed."
The blonde sighed and nodded his head. "Yeah I'll just sleep it off. If I feel like I need it then I'll go see Tsunade baa-chan okay?"
Satisfied (but still a little worried), Sasuke kissed the blonde mop of hair before going back to dressing himself. In just a few short minutes he heard his blonde lightly snoring; it made him chuckle how easily he fell asleep sometimes.
Before he left he pulled the blankets to cover Naruto up more – since fall was beginning to get a little chillier – and went off to work.
Hours later, Naruto stood in front of the fridge to see what was available to eat. Lately he had just wanted to eat potatoes for some reason. French fries, curly fries, baked, mashed potato whatever.
But for now the kitchen was out of stock of potato dishes. Not that they had a lot anyway.
Naruto sighed and just reached for a carton of milk. A secret habit of his was that he drank from the carton when Sasuke wasn't home. He gulped it down for a few seconds before wiping at his mouth and putting it back inside the fridge.
He held his stomach a little as he sat down on the couch. "Ugh! Seriously, why do I still feel sick?" he asked himself. "I told Sasuke I got better like a week ago but I still feel like crap!"
He looked up at the ceiling, wondering what he should do.
"I guess I'll call baa-chan…"
Shikamaru was busy working at his computer like a good employee. He was answering emails, editing documents, and trying to just earn money. He at least had a steady income to support himself and his future family.
Yes he planned to have a family.
His plan went exactly like this: marry a regular girl who isn't too ugly and not too pretty. Have two children, first a girl, then a boy. Retire after his daughter marries and his son becomes successful a man and spend the rest of his life playing shogi or go. Then die of old age before his wife.
Kiba had to admit that Shikamaru's plan didn't sound that terrible.
"Psst, Shikamaru!" someone whispered to him.
He looked away from his computer screen to see Sakura and Kiba. He sighed and leaned back in his chair. He wondered what kind of trouble they were up to now. He muttered, "Troublesome… What is it you two?"
Sakura spoke first, "Naruto just went into Sasuke's office!"
"And he looked really happy for some reason." Kiba added.
Shikamaru just stared at his friends. What was so important about that?
"We're gonna eavesdrop!"
He turned his back to his friends and continued on with his work. Or tried to when a strong arm had pulled him from his seat and away from his computer. Sakura pulled him by the collar of his shirt while Kiba followed.
And then they all stood at the front of Sasuke's closed office door.
"I wonder what they're doing in there…" Sakura said.
"Office sex?" Kiba offered as an answer.
Both of his friends turned to him in question.
Sakura pressed her ear against the door and listened closely (because secretly, if they were having office sex she wanted to be the one to hear it). But to her disappointment, she didn't hear any sexy noises; just the sound of talking. She went back to her friends and shook her head no.
"Do you think… we should walk in?" Kiba asked.
They all glanced at each other. The first and last time that happened well… the ending result was meeting Naruto. Would it be okay to repeat the action? They were all so curious to know what was going on inside the room.
Kiba reached into his pocket and pulled out a coin. "Flip for it? Heads, go, tails, no go. Two out of three?"
Sakura and Shikamaru nodded in agreement.
The first flip landed on heads. And then the second flip landed on tails. They flipped one last time and the coin landed on heads.
Yet even with the score, they all stood still in their places. And the same question all rang inside their heads: should we do it?
Then Kiba took two large strides, just like the last time, and swung the door open.
"Excuse me Uchiha-san!" Kiba said as he opened the door. And again, just like the last time, two people inside the room broke away from their lip lock to stare at him. Sasuke glared at him while Naruto just looked plain giddy.
"Inuzuka, what the hell are you coming barging in here for? And without even knocking!" Sasuke voiced, almost bordering on yelling. But he had to keep him voice calm; he didn't want to cause a scene in his building. "It better be damn important, I was in the middle of something."
Shikamaru had to stop himself from rolling his eyes. Oh yeah, Sasuke was definitely in the middle of something.
Naruto diffused the tension with a bright smile. "Aw come on, stop being such a dick Sasuke! I just gave you some really good news!"
Sakura squeezed herself into the room and stood before Naruto. "What's going on?" she asked.
"I'm pregnant!" Naruto announced, practically bouncing on his heels in excitement. "I had cravings and feeling a little sick so I decided to go see my Godmother who's a doctor and I found out I'm pregnant! Now my family can stop bugging me!"
Shikamaru watched as Naruto, Sakura, and Kiba circled around each other. And he had to watch in amusement as Sasuke pinched the bridge of his nose in exasperation and shook his head. He could see his lips moving, probably muttering something about this whole scene happening before him.
He had to admit that before Naruto was even "introduced" to them, he felt sorry for the person that married Uchiha Sasuke, his superior.
"Come on, we should go celebrate Sakura-chan! You come too guys!" Naruto said as he began to pull all of them outside of the office. "Sasuke, they're all going to lunch with me! You and I can celebrate tonight at home!"
Shikamaru thought that whoever married Sasuke was one poor sucker…
"… Have them back within an hour." Sasuke sighed as he leaned back on his desk, looking cross.
But maybe it was Sasuke that was actually the poor sucker for being married to Naruto.
And that brought an amused smile to his face.
HERE'S YOUR (OTHER) SURPRISE: This is the last chapter for PS! I know it seems kinda abrupt to just end it like this but you need to read on to discover my reasons.
I finally decided to make Naruto pregnant. And don't worry you will get to read all about that in the SEQUEL.
Since PS is mainly about Sasuke & Naruto as a married couple, I decided to keep it that way. And seeing as I (finally decided) making Naruto pregnant, the sequel will be about them soon becoming parents.
So for readers who enjoyed this story but don't really want the mpreg, you can feel free to reread the story and skip out on the sequel if you want. But for readers who want the mpreg and are excited and anticipating the next story, watch out for…
That Poor Guy
(yeah… creative sequel title right?)
Thanks for sticking with me!
Update: Prequel - That Poor Kid
