SECOND NEW STORY!

Because like I said, new chapter has me excited.

I will admit right now that this particular story will probably be the hardest for me to write due to what it's about lol. I will try my best to do it justice anyway.

Rated T for now. I'm not sure if I will ever bump the rating up to M though.

Please enjoy!


It was 7:00 on the dot when Naruto got up from the comfy chair and went to the kitchen to make dinner.

It was 7:30 when dinner was finished and Naruto started setting the table up for two.

It was 7:40 when Naruto had his plate ready and was sitting down at the table, waiting.

It was 8:45 when Naruto realized he was lied to and that he would have to eat alone again.

It was 9:00 when Naruto finished clearing up the kitchen and packed all of the leftovers into the fridge.

It was 9:02 when Naruto sat back in the comfy chair and started staring at the TV.

It was 11:57 when Naruto finally got up again and made his way through the large, cold, and empty estate to the master bedroom.

It was 12:38 when Naruto finished his nightly rituals and laid down on his side on the large empty bed, getting under the covers that provided him with no warmth.

It was 2:30 before he finally fell into a dreamless sleep.


"Good morning Sasuke," Naruto said with a smile when he came into the kitchen. Sasuke didn't answer as he kept his eyes on the paper he was reading, coffee in hand, open briefcase on the table. Naruto's smile lessened. Sasuke was also wearing his suit already.

"How was work yesterday?" Naruto asked politely.

"Fine," Sasuke grunted, still reading his paper.

"When'd you get back?"

Sasuke didn't answer. Naruto figured he wouldn't.

"I left dinner in the fridge. I made a lot so I hope you helped yourself."

Sasuke again, didn't answer.

Naruto was standing in the kitchen doorway wearing his pajamas while his husband ignored him for his work. Again. By this point, Naruto didn't even have the urge to fidget awkwardly. He instead just walked over to the pantry and pulled out a box of pancake mix.

"Would you like some breakfast?"

"Don't bother. I'm leaving for work in ten minutes," Sasuke said sipping more of his coffee. Naruto looked down.

"Oh. Okay then. I'll just make some pancakes for myself then," he mumbled before walking over to the counter to get started. It was silent in the kitchen but Naruto was used to that. Didn't mean he still sometimes tried to fix it. So when his pancakes were on the stove he tried to start some light conversation.

"You sure are working hard huh? Is it another big case?"

Naruto heard Sasuke sigh in frustration behind him.

"Can you stop talking? I really have to focus on this."

"Sorry Sasuke," Naruto said. He kept his voice steady and apologetic. He hid the hurt he felt that Sasuke turned down yet another chance at having a conversation with his husband. The first conversation they would've had in months.

"Never mind. Talk all you want I have to go," Sasuke replied. He drank the last bit of his coffee before throwing it away in the trash. He gathered up his papers and briefcase and without even a good-bye, walked out the door leaving Naruto alone in the Uchiha estate again.

"See ya," he said to no one. He stared blankly at the wall right in front of him, not even noticing as his pancakes burned and burned.


And that is it!

Sorry no chapter 1 to go along with it :(. I actually have some of it written but it's not complete yet.

Hope you enjoyed this!

Do note that this along with October 10th, and Anything That Can Go Wrong, will all be focused on once Technically I Never Lied is complete. I mean October 10th will still get chapter 4 soon but I wouldn't expect updates for this story and ATCGW until TINL is finished.

But eh. WHo knows? I didn't expect to update October 10th so soon either. But if the people want! They shall receive!

Please tell me what you think of this!

EDIT: Fixing typos. Oh do note I will NOT bash Sasuke in this(or at the very least try really hard not to).
