Based on Naruto Shippuden episode 194. Sasuke and Naruto's hand have been stuck together, and now they have to live with each other for three days! Can something blossom out of this? Or will the rivals remain enemies?


How did it end up like this dattebayo? Naruto wondered. How did we get to here?


"We're going to split into two teams and lie in wait for them," Kakashi-sensei told his three students.

They were on a mission to retrieve a golden statue stolen by bandits from a feudal lord's daughter.

The three genin and their jounin teacher sat in a diamond shape in a clearing, discussing their plan to get the statue back.

"In terms of balance," Kakashi-sensei went on. "I guess I should go alone, and the three of you will be together."

"What do you mean by that?" Naruto asked. "Are you saying Sasuke needs all the help he can get?"

Sasuke, who was facing their teacher, scowled and turned to glare at the blonde.

"No, you're the hindrance," he said irritably.

Naruto made a sour face.

While Sasuke turned back to Kakashi-sensei, the blonde grit his teeth. That teme! He cursed.

"I'm not up to your level yet, but surely three to one is too much." Sasuke said. "Why don't you take Naruto off my hands? Subtract his skill from yours and we'll be even."

"Huh?" great stars appeared in Sakura's eyes.

Inner Sakura winked and skated in a circle. "Sasuke-kun, is that just a clever approach so you and I can be alone together?" Inner Sakura cried blowing a kiss and several hearts went whooshing around her.

Naruto saw her love-struck face and growled, clenching his fists and gritting his teeth. "You've got to be kidding me dattebayo!" he shouted.

He turned to Sasuke and began literally screaming with rage right in his ear. "Why would you subtract my skill?" he demanded.

Sasuke had his eyes closed and didn't even flinch at the harsh shouting, "Because you have nothing to add," he said calmly.

"NANI?" Naruto screamed.

Sakura squealed happily and began waving her head back and forth, fists clenched at her chest in passion. "Sasuke-kun wants to be with me so much he's getting impatient!" she cried.

"You're just as irritating!" Sasuke snapped.

Kakashi-sensei set a bamboo stick on the ground and lighting coursed through the ground from it, electrocuting the three genin.

Robotically, they turned to him.

"Listen up," he said. "I'll watch the pier, and you three will keep an eye on this path in the forest,"

So, a normal everyday mission. Nothing unusual about it. But that was just the beginning.

Sasuke and Naruto managed to get the statue, but Sakura was kidnapped by the bandits.

Also, to add to their problems, their hands had been glued together with gooey chakra.

Apparently the lead bandit was so evil his chakra came out a gooey substance and he could excrete it from his palms.

The two tried several different ways to break the chakra. Some of them painful

Firstthey pulled away from each other, trying to snap the chakra.

They gritted their teeth as they pulled, but ultimately they snapped back like a rubber band, their heads smashing into each other.

Then they tried something else.

They ran at a boulder and punched hard, a few seconds later pain rippled through them and mechanically they pulled back.

Pain was written all over Naruto's face, and while Sasuke was more composed, he couldn't stop his eye twitching.

Then they stood and the top of a waterfall, looking at each other they nodded and jumped.

There was a rock sticking out from near the bottom that they were aiming for.

Their conjoined hands hit the rock and they went under the water, desperately trying to swim away so the chakra would snap.

But unfortunately the rubber band action happened again and they were propelled upwards, back up the waterfall.

Even more unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) their lips were smashed together as they fell back down.

They fell into the water and resurfaced quickly, spitting out the effects on the 'kiss'.

"Why is it always with you?" Sasuke shouted angrily.

"That's my line!" Naruto snapped.

They both looked at their still-joined hands and sighed deeply, looking away, both blushing from the fact that they had once again kissed. Accidently or not.

Naruto sighed to himself.

~small flashback~

"Thank you Sasuke-kun!" Sakura cried adoringly, clinging to Sasuke's arm.

Sasuke looked at her like a dead fish was attached to him.

"Hey, I did my best too," Naruto complained. Damn teme, always gets all the credit.

"This is ridiculous dattebayo!" Naruto put his foot to the chakra and tried his best to break it off his hand. "How come you of all people can't undo this Kakashi-sensei!"

"Remember that boss said so too," Sakura said trying not to laugh. "It'll crumbled apart in two or three days."

Sasuke and Naruto's eyes widened and they redoubled their efforts to free themselves. "Like I can put up with him for that long!" Sasuke said.

"That's my line dattebayo!" Naruto said through gritted teeth.

Sakura giggled behind her hands.

Suddenly Naruto stopped struggling. "Ah man, I think I gotta go," he said urgently.

"Not again!" Sasuke said in disbelief, who needs to go that often?

"This time it's number two dattebayo," Naruto grinned placing a hand on Sasuke's shoulder.

Sasuke panicked. "You've got to be kidding me," he said as Naruto forced him away to the trees.

"Don't you dare Naruto!"

"Aw c'mon, we already peed together," Naruto said.

"This is worse!" Sasuke shouted.

Sakura gave a completely-weirded-out face and turned away from the scene with a 'hmph!'.

~end small flashback~

This is going to be hell dattebayo, Naruto thought to himself.

"Oi dobe, wake up we gotta go," Sasuke said snapping his fingers in front of Naruto's face.

"Ah. Right." Naruto said getting up.

"What were you thinking about so hard anyway?" Sasuke asked as they followed Sakura and Kakashi-sensei back to the village.

"About how much I'm gonna hate this dattebayo!" Naruto snapped.

"Hey do you think I like the idea of being stuck to you for a week any better?" Sasuke shouted.

Naruto growled.

"Come on you two, it won't be so bad," Sakura said to them.

"Yeah, but you're not the one attached to the idiot," Sasuke said.

"Hey! I hate being stuck to you twice as much teme!" Naruto retorted.

"Trust me, I hate it more usuratonkachii!" Sasuke yelled.

"I hate you so much!" Naruto shouted.

"Right back at you dobe!" Sasuke snapped.

"Calm down you two." Kakashi-sensei said, perverted book in hand.

"First you have to figure out whose house you're staying in."

Sasuke snorted in contempt. "There's no way I am setting foot inside this idiot's trash pile," he said.

"What did you say?" Naruto challenged.

"That you'll stay at Sasuke's," Kakashi-sensei cut in.

"Nani? I am so not staying in that gloomy place, have you seen the Uchiha complex?" he said.

"Have you?" Sasuke snapped.

"Well…not really. From a distance I have, and it looks like a graveyard," Naruto stammered.

Sasuke growled, his Sharingan showing. Naruto's words had brought back old memories of the Uchiha Massacre. "Say that again." He demanded.

"Sasuke-kun, calm down." Kakashi-sensei ordered.

"First you'll go to Naruto's apartment and get his things, then you'll go to the Uchiha complex. Missions are hereby cancelled for the week, but feel free to train."

Sasuke groaned. "This has to be the worst moment of my life," he muttered.

"Yeah right back at you," Naruto grumbled.

They both sighed.
