Warnings: ItaKyuu. Wedding. Broken hearts. Flash backs.


-4 Months Later-

...

Naruto sat at the kitchen table, staring at Kyuubi who kept groaning and grunting in discomfort as he trotted into the kitchen with a warm wash cloth over his eyes. It was summer and this season made the redhead irritated. Why? Well, because-

"Damn allergies!" He banged his fist on the counter top and Naruto smiled, weakly, looking at his older cousin. The redhead was dressed in a pair of cut-off shorts, a white tank top and ankle socks; his red hair was pulled into a ponytail at his upper back because he stopped cutting it a while ago and his hair was longer now.

He removed the cloth from his eyes and rubbed them with his palms. God, it itched so badly and his nose was stuffy. The blond sitting leaned his chin in the palm of his hand and Jace came crawling into the kitchen with his bottle in his mouth, his red hair also longer and falling around his ears.

"Ya know, Itachi can get rid of that." Naruto stated, waving his hand. The blond smiled when Kyuubi stared at him and the older Uzumaki rolled his eyes.

"No he can't."

"Uh-huh."

"How do you know that?"

Naruto tapped his finger on his chin, thinking. "Because Sasuke had really bad allergies when he was little but his big brother fixed them for him. He hasn't gotten allergies since then." Naruto grinned, leaning back in the chair and Kyuubi cocked an eyebrow, throwing the cloth on the kitchen island.

"How you doing?" He asked, sympathetically and the blond sighed, deeply, lacing his fingers through his golden locks.

"Fine.. I guess."

Kyuubi frowned. He hated seeing Naruto so sad. "Have you eaten?"

"Yeah." Naruto nodded and the redhead frowned, rubbing his eyes again. His nose and eyes were red and itchy. The door bell then rang and Kyuubi leaned down, picking Jace up off the floor and placed him in the high-chair.

"Door's unlocked!" Naruto yelled and they heard the door open and close, indicating someone walked in. Kyuubi sneezed twice and whined, pushing some stray strand away from his face and behind his ear. "I think your boyfriend's here." Naruto chimed, grinning and Kyuubi blushed slightly, pursing his lips.

That said boyfriend then came strolling into the kitchen dressed clad in a pair of jean shorts, a short sleeve button-down shirt that was undone, exposing a black tank underneath and a pair of high tops. His jet-black hair was pulled in a pony at his pale, nape neck and his bangs framed his face beautifully. "Good afternoon." He stretched his arms, walking over to Jace and ruffling his hair.

"Good afternoon, Itachi." Naruto replied, cheerfully. The blond was actually excited that Itachi and Kyuubi were dating now; when he found out he was more than stunned, but he was happy for the both of them. The relationship had been going good for four months now and they still hadn't had their first lovers spat, but he knew they would experience that probably once his cousin was comfortable enough around the man.

Kyuubi sneezed again and rubbed his eyes. "Sick?" The Uchiha raised an eyebrow and Naruto shook his head.

"Allergies."

Kyuubi was facing the sink, his cheeks flushed and his heart beat increasing. That happened every time he saw Itachi or the man came around, but he knew how to act normal. The stoic man then smirked and strolled up behind the redhead, wrapping his arms around his slim waist.

"Aww, how are you feeling kitten?" He cooed, nuzzling his face in his neck and the redhead rubbed his nose.

"I feel horrible. My nose is itchy and stuffy and I can't see." Kyuubi murmured, pouting his lips and the Uchiha chuckled, hearing his whiny voice. Kyuubi rarely complained or whined about anything, but hearing him sound so whiny and cute made the man content. At least he was opening up to him a bit more; he wasn't as distant like a few months ago.

"Want me to make it go away?" He whispered in his ear and Kyuubi nodded, turning to face the man. Naruto blushed slightly, seeing the man act all lovey dovey with Kyuubi.

"Close your eyes." He demanded and the redhead did so, shrugging. Itachi then walked over to the fridge and took out what he needed; Naruto cocked his head to the side, arching an eyebrow and the man smirked, walking back over to Kyuubi. "Open your mouth." Kyuubi's face burrowed into confusion. "C'mon, you want it to go away right?" Itachi mused and the redhead hesitantly opened his mouth; the Uchiha then put something in his mouth and he chewed before his eyes shot open, his face flushing deep red.

"W-what the fuck?!" He ran over to the trash can and spit out whatever he chewed. "Hot, hot, hot!" He then dashed over to the sink, turning on the cold water and Naruto and Itachi laughed. Kyuubi put his head under the cold water and opened his mouth, stomping his foot at the burning taste. When he finished and his mouth cooled down he glared at the raven who smiled, teasingly at him.

"Itachi, what the hell did you give me?" He snarled, clenching his teeth and the Uchiha snickered.

"Wasabi."

"You-"

"Can you breathe?" The man cut him off and the Uzumaki cocked an eyebrow.

He then sniffed the air and a smile crept onto his face. "My nose isn't stuffy anymore."

The long haired raven gave a nod and Naruto grinned, widely. "I told you." The blond gleamed and Kyuubi's green eyes narrowed.

"My eyes still itch though." He muttered, pouting and the Uchiha hoisted him up off the floor bridle style in his arms. Kyuubi blushed, furiously and his emerald eyes looked at the man. "W-what are you doing?" He stammered out and Itachi replied,

"A bath will keep your eyes from itching, especially the steam." He stated, firmly and Kyuubi wrapped his arms around his neck.

"It better work." He grumbled and the pale man kissed the tip of his nose, carrying him out of the kitchen. Naruto ruffled his own hair, giggling.

"They're so cute, right?" His blue eyes looked at Jace and the child banged his hands on the table.

"Food!"

"Please." He frowned and Jace whined, kicking his feet. Naruto sighed in defeat and got up; the red-haired child laughed and the Uzumaki furrowed his brows. 'So rude.' He opened the cabinet and took out some food for his little cousin.


After spending a while in the bath Kyuubi walked into his bedroom with a towel wrapped around his waist. The Uzumaki's hair was a deeper shade of red from the water and his silky red locks were drenched, clinging to his damp skin and back. His slim yet, curvy frame had droplets of water dripping down it and he shook his head, flinging water in the process before shivering from the cold air.

"Feel better?" A deep voice asked from behind him and he turned around. Itachi strolled into the room and Kyuubi nodded, grabbing the other towel his boyfriend tossed to him as he walked passed him and took a seat on his bed.

"Thanks." He smiled and the raven patted the spot beside him, smirking. Kyuubi took that as a hint to sit and planted him beside the Uchiha, fidgeting nervously.

The man then grabbed the redhead by his jaw, turning him to face him and looked him into his emerald green eyes. They were slightly red and Kyuubi blushed, staring into those black orbs.

"Good, it looks like your eyes are getting better." Kyuubi sighed, shrugging before the Uchiha gave him a peck on the lips.

Kyuubi then rolled his eyes and turned his face away from the man. "I'm not completely helpless." He folded his arms across his chest and Itachi chuckled.

"I know, but you can depend on me sometimes."

"Whatever." Kyuubi huffed out and the stoic man, sighed, scratching the back of his head. "Don't you have work today?"

"No."

"Well… did you want to do something?" Kyuubi turned his gaze to the raven and Itachi dug in his pocket; Kyuubi cocked an eyebrow, curiously and the raven pulled out a black, rectangle box. "What's that?" He moved closer to the man and Itachi handed it to him.

"For you, kitten." He hummed, leaning back on his hand and the redhead opened it before his eyes widened.

"This is… for me?"

The man nodded with a sincere smile on his face.

"But this… looks so expensive and…" He stared at the man oddly before his eyes narrowed as he laced his fingers through his wet hair; Itachi had a blank expression on his pale face as Kyuubi furrowed his brows.

"What?"

"What do you want?" Kyuubi scoffed, closing the present and the inky haired man had a confused look on his face.

"What do you mean?" He sat up and the redhead frowned.

"You gave me this, so you must want something in return, don't you?" His eyebrows knitted together and Itachi sighed, deeply. There he goes putting up that wall again.

"Kyuubi, just because I give you something doesn't mean you have to give me something back. I saw you looking at it last time we were out, so I got it for you." Itachi leaned his face closer to the redhead's and Kyuubi's face faltered, a small smile appearing on his lips.

"…I thought all guys-"

The man placed a finger on his lips. "I got it for you because I wanted to. I don't expect anything from you and I'm not like other guys you know." He had a stern look on his face and Kyuubi rubbed the back of his neck, puffing out his cheeks.

"…Sorry."

"Apology not accepted." The man uttered and Kyuubi seemed stunned by that response as he leaned closer to the Uchiha.

"I said sorry." He repeated, seriously and Itachi shrugged.

"Hn. Apology not accepted." He had an amusing smirk on his face and Kyuubi panicked, clutching the man's shirt, some of is wet hair falling in his face.

"Please don't be mad at me. I'm not use to this whole boyfriend thing and in the past guys always tried to bribe me with stuff, so they could get things in return. I'm really sorry." He finished and the man's smirk widened.

"Fine. I'll forgive you if," Kyuubi looked at him with alluring green eyes. What would the man ask for a blow job or maybe a hand job; Kyuubi's eyes wavered as he waited for the raven to answer. "A kiss."

Kyuubi blinked a few times. "Huh?"

"A kiss, then I'll forgive you." Itachi tapped his finger on his lips and the redhead gulped. That was simple. He got on his knees and placed his hands on the man's chest before leaning in for a kiss; it started off slow and then Kyuubi relaxed into it. Their lips meshed together and the redhead straddled himself on the Uchiha, his legs on either side of his hips.

"..Hnn…" He pushed the pale man back onto the bed and Itachi's tongue swiped his bottom lip. Kyuubi opened his mouth and the man's tongue delved into his sweet mouth; he felt Itachi place his hand on his hip and pulled him closer. Itachi then grunted in satisfaction when their tongues began to twirl and thrust into each others mouth.

Kyuubi's body tingled with pleasure and his nerves felt like they were on fire. He wrapped his arms the Uchiha's neck and the man's hands roamed his damp body. The raven's hand then caress his thigh and he could feel that hand gliding under the towel wrapped around his waist. His body tensed at the feeling and Itachi could tell as he sat up.

The redhead tried to ignore it and kept kissing the man vigorously. "Mm-Kyuu-Nh!" The Uzumaki pushed him back on the bed and his hands clutched his shoulders. Kyuubi placed his hand over the hand that rested on his thigh and the Uchiha groaned, grabbing the redhead by his shoulders and pushing him back, breaking the kiss forcefully.

Kyuubi gazed at him with wide eyes and Itachi took a deep breath. The redhead bit down on his bottom lip nervously and Itachi sat up with Kyuubi still straddled on him. "Kyuubi, I'll only go as far as you want me to. Don't force yourself." The Uchiha panted and Kyuubi's eyes brimmed with tears.

"I'm sorry… I don't want you to stop liking me because I won't have sex with you, but I want you to feel good too." He sniffled with tears dripping down from his eyes and Itachi had a pained expression on his face. He hated seeing Kyuubi cry. This was his first time feeling loved by someone, being held by someone that actually cared about him, but didn't Itachi want sex like other guys? What if he cheated on him because he didn't spread his legs for him?

"Kyuubi…" The man wrapped his arms around him and Kyuubi wiped his eyes. God, Itachi made him act weird. He didn't usually cry so easily, but here he was falling apart when he shouldn't be. "It's fine. Of course I want to have sex with you, but that's not the only reason I'm with you. I'm with you because I love you." Kyuubi leaned up and stared at the Uchiha.

"R-really?"

A smile curved on Itachi's lips and he cupped his face. "Yeah, so stop crying. We don't have to have sex yet, but I still love you." Kyuubi could feel the steam blow out his ears and his face heat up after hearing those words. He still hadn't said those words back though but Itachi knew it would take time for Kyuubi to actually say I love you to someone else.

"…I think my allergies are acting up again." Itachi laughed and Kyuubi puffed out his cheeks, sniffling. The pale Uchiha then captured his lips and Kyuubi whimpered, blushing up to his ears.

Itachi Uchiha was the first person to ever make him feel completely safe and cherished. If he got his heart broken by this man, he might never recover.


...

A few days after graduation, Naruto laid on the sofa crying his eyes out.

Sasuke was getting married tomorrow and it finally hit him like a ton of bricks; his heart was twisting in his chest and he couldn't stop crying. He cried so much he had a headache and his blue eyes were puffy.

"Naruto." Kyuubi walked into the living room with Jace in his arms and Naruto responded with a few sobs and mumbles. The redhead sat down on the sofa and put Jace down on the floor. "C'mon. You want to go out?" Kyuubi placed a hand on his head and the younger Uzuamki shook his head.

"I d-don't want to do anything." He spat out, crying harder and louder.

Kyuubi scratched the back of his head. What was he supposed to do?

"Do you… want some ice cream?" He went straight to the last resort and the blue eyed teen whimpered, sitting up and wiping his red, puffy eyes.

"That sounds good." He hiccuped and Kyuubi rubbed his back, soothingly.

"Okay, I'll go get you some."

Naruto fell back onto the sofa and sobbed into the cushion. His heart might as well have been ripped out, sliced up and jammed back in by Fugaku Uchiha himself. No wonder Mikoto divorced his money grubbing ass.

'I wanna see him, but…' The blond tightened his fist, grinding his teeth. Life sucked. "Sasuke." Tears streamed down his cheeks and Jace stared at him in awe. The child then stood up and poked his finger at Naruto's tears.

"Jace, stop." He muttered, grinning weakly and the child patted his face with a small hand.

"Na-Naru." The baby tilted his head to the side and the blond got up with wide eyes. "Naruto~" Jace clapped his hands together and the Uzumaki scooped him up in his arms. Jace giggled, clutching his shirt and the blue eyed male ran in the kitchen with the child in his arms.

"Kyuu! He said my name!" Naruto shouted, cheerfully and the redhead cocked an eyebrow, putting the ice cream scooper down on the kitchen island.

"Did he?" He snorted and the blond nodded his head, a bright smile plastering his. "That made you feel better?"

"Yeah, it did." His blue eyes looked at the child, playing with the necklace around his neck. "Thanks, Jace." He kissed his forehead and the child gurgled, making spit bubbles.

Kyuubi smiled and Naruto put the child down to walk. "So… are you gonna go see him?" Kyuubi suddenly asked and the blond wiped his eyes, sniffling.

He scratched his head in confusion, contemplating if he should go see Sasuke. Did he really want to? No, but that would be the last time he and Sasuke would be together before he got married.

"…Yeah." He gave a nod, smiling softly with blush spreading across his cheeks. He placed his hand over his chest and took a deep breath. He loves Sasuke and he knew the raven probably felt just as horrible as he did; hell his life was about to be ruined and he had no control over it.

"You better go then." Kyuubi walked over to him and placed his hand on his shoulder. "Ya know, you're pretty strong, Naruto. If I were in your place I would be broken." The redhead said, truthfully and Naruto waved him off.

"Nah, but thanks." Naruto grinned and turned around. "I'll see you later!" He darted out the kitchen and was soon out the house. Kyuubi turned his gaze to his child who sat on the floor, grinning and his father picked him up.

"Thanks little guy. You did a great job." He put his hand up and Jace stared at it before giving his papa a high five. Kyuubi ruffled his red locks and Jace giggled.


Sasuke stared at the time. A few more hours and it would be a new day; his wedding day. He didn't want to get married, he hated that old man for getting him in this, but what could he do?

He saw how heart broken Naruto was at graduation and he couldn't comfort him; he couldn't tell him everything would be okay, he couldn't tell him he'd fix things. Yes. Indeed life could suck. After he was married he'd have to settle down with Hinata Hyuga. This was so fucking crazy he wanted to pull his hair out. Sure Hinata was pretty, but nobody could measure up to his blond dobe.

He sat on the sofa, staring at the tv, blankly. He kicked his feet up on the coffee table, tilting his head to the side and yawned. The door bell then rang and he got up to answer it; who could be here this late? It was almost one in the morning.

Sasuke turned the door knob and the opened the door. His dark eyes widened when he laid on Naruto Uzumaki panting with his hands on his knees. His damp blond locks were in his face and the Uchiha stood there stunned by the sight.

"Naruto?"

The blond stood up straight and jumped into his arms, wrapping his arms the pale teen. "Sasuke, I love you!" He cried on his shirt and the raven stroked his head. "I love you so much, but I promise I'll come back!" Naruto looked at him with determined blue eyes and Sasuke smirked, pulling the blond in the house and closing the door behind them.

"Naruto, I thought you hated me." He hugged the Uzumaki tighter, nuzzling his face in his blonde locks and Naruto shook his head, clutching the Uchiha's shirt in his fist.

"No! Of course not! I hate your father though." He mumbled and Sasuke laughed, halfheartedly. "No matter what happens I'll always wait for you, it's a promise." He giggled and Sasuke kissed his forehead.

The blond then let go of the raven and backed up. "Now, what do you say we have one more hot shower together." Naruto smirked, grabbing the Uchiha's hand.

Sasuke placed a kiss on his lips and his smooth voice replied, "Sex still on your mind huh?" The man scooped him up in his arms bridle style and Naruto had a cunning smile on his face, wrapping his arms around the Uchiha's neck.

"Of course. I can't get enough of my Sasuke Uchiha." He purred and the raven kissed him again before carrying him out the living room, down the hallway and into the bathroom. This was their last night to make love, but no matter how painful it was to let go they would enjoy every minute of it.

That night was perfect. Naruto's cries of ecstasy filled the steamy bathroom, bedroom and living room as Sasuke made love to him until that next morning and on everywhere possible. The kisses, the feeling of Sasuke's warmth made Naruto cry because he knew that it wouldn't last long; how he came to love Sasuke was a wonder, but he was glad that he fell in love with such an ex-playboy. He changed him after all. Sasuke only had eyes for him and everything had been perfect until now; he still remembered how much he hated Sasuke before.

There is only a thin line between love and hate... and sometimes it seemed like they were dancing on that line.

"SASUKE! YOUR FRIEND IS HERE!" He yelled ever so rudely, causing the young man behind him to flinch at the tone of voice.

"Okay, stop yelling dobe." Sasuke came downstairs looking stunning. He wore a half buttoned dress shirt and tight fitting pants with his damp hair messy.

He walked passed Naruto who scowled and he looked at him. "Bye! Go away!" Sasuke shooed the Uzumaki away.

"Have fun with your slut tonight." Naruto mumbled and the raven glared, hearing that smart comment.

..

"Sasuke! That's not how it's done." The raven looked at Naruto almost confused.

"You have to get a plastic bag." Naruto ripped off a mini plastic bag and put the oranges in one. "See you separate them into these little bags." The Uzumaki instructed.

"O-oh." Sasuke scratched the back of his head and Naruto put the rest of the fruits into different bags.

"Next a jar of pickled plums." Naruto read the list out loud to the Uchiha. Naruto then began pushing the cart to a different aisle and saw the jarred foods.

"I can get that." Sasuke walked over and grabbed a jar of pickled plums and put it in the cart.

"Good!" Naruto smiled.

"Don't treat me like a child." Sasuke hissed.

..

"R-really?" Naruto grinned with wide eyes.

"Yes! Now get on before I change my mind." Sasuke scoffed; Naruto nodded, eagerly and got behind the Uchiha on the bike.

"B-but... I don't have a helmet." Naruto puffed out his cheeks and Sasuke flinched, seeing that cute face.

'No! No! Sasuke, look away, don't look at him... you're just sick.. yeah that's all... sick!'

..

"Naruto hand me that pencil." Sasuke pointed to the pencil that was next to Naruto's hand.

"O-oh, here." Naruto held the pencil out to the pale teen and when Sasuke took it their hands brushed together; they both jumped at the feel of each others hands and dropped the pencil on the floor.

"S-sorry." Naruto leaned down, blushing up to his ears and grabbed the pencil from under the table.

Sasuke had a stunned look on his face. 'What the hell is up with my heart…that's weird...' The Uchiha's heart wouldn't stop racing.

..

"All I remember was some guy giving me fruit punch and then um- I don't know everything went black after that." Naruto turned over on his stomach because his bottom hurt like hell.

"Yeah, you decided to get a little freaky last night and then we came back home and-"

"And we did it?!" Naruto sat up and punched the raven on his chest repeatedly but it didn't hurt very much. "Give it back! Give it back! Sasuke I want my virginity back you teme!" Sasuke grabbed his arms and covered his mouth.

"Look I wouldn't consider what we did sex. I only got the tip in and you started crying." Sasuke sighed and Naruto blushed up to his ears.

"Huh?"

"Yeah and plus I remember you saying how important it was to you and stuff so I couldn't got through with it." Sasuke blushed slightly, letting go of the blond's arms.

Those were the days he would never forget...


...

The blond was dressed clad in a black tux the next day. Today was the day. Hinata didn't want to go through it alone so she asked her friends to come and pray for something to go wrong.

Naruto frowned, sitting beside all his friends that had scowls and glares directed towards the two grown men sitting near the front at Sasuke's and Hinata's wedding. Hinata did look pretty in that wedding dress; it was white and tight, hugging her hips and waist. Her long hair was in curls and Sasuke was dressed in a white, fitted tux with his inky locks slicked back.

The room was filled with business associates, family friends and others from the Hyuga family. There were A LOT of people indeed and they would all see Sasuke and Hinata get married.

The wedding hall was beautiful and of course Naruto would have loved to have a wedding like this one. Naruto was so out of it he didn't notice the ceremony had started.

"Dearly beloved, we're gathered here today…"

The blond tuned most of it out and Neji placed a hand on his shoulder.

Naruto then looked forward and Sasuke had a stoic look on his face as he held Hinata's hand. Hinata was crying a little; everyone else probably thought those were tears of joy, but no. She had been crying to this day. Hinata didn't want this and neither did Sasuke. His blue eyes targeted towards Fugaku and Hiashi; they were smirking, ecstatic that their plan had turned out well.

"You okay?" Gaara whispered, leaning towards him and Naruto's lips quivered.

He then shook his head, holding his tears back. This was really happening and there was no turning back. Sakura had a sad look come over her face and Kiba gritted his teeth. How could two parents that love their children do this and for money no less? Naruto's hands trembled as he stared at Hinata and Sasuke, his mind drowned the ceremony out, but he could read lips. Sasuke and Hinata just said, I do, but there was no emotion on their face.

He clenched his fist, gritting his teeth so hard it hurt. His heart felt like his heart was splitting in two and his stomach twisted painfully.

"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride." The priest proclaimed and the two eighteen year olds leaned in to kiss each other.

Their lips trembled as they got closer and closer to each others lips; Sasuke glanced out the corner of his eye and spotted Naruto covering his mouth as he sat there watching.

Naruto dreaded this day and here he was seeing it with his own eyes. Their lips were inches away from each other; hands then covered his eyes and tears dripped down his face. He couldn't hold them back anymore. Neji had placed his hands over his friend's eyes; Naruto wouldn't be able to take it. He would break down if he saw it and Neji knew that for sure.

Sasuke stopped for a second and then closed his eyes before planting a simple kiss on the Hyuga's lips. Tears dripped down her cheeks and Sasuke had a knot forming in his stomach.

Naruto choked out a sob and his breathing lagged when he heard the people cheering, clapping and shoutings of 'congratulations' or 'we wish you the best' fill his ears. He then opened his watery blue eyes and Sasuke stared at him when he got up.

"Naruto." Gaara got up and the blond quickly made his way out the wedding hall, causing some odd looks from people he didn't know. Sasuke stood there with a pained expression plastering his pale face and his anger boiled over; he was married to Hinata now and Naruto was gone.

Everything was done and Naruto was suffering.


-Days Later-

Naruto grabbed his suitcase from Itachi and Kyuubi handed him the last one.

He already said goodbye to his mother, Mikoto and his other friends before Itachi drove him to the airport. He didn't say goodbye to Sasuke though, he was on his honeymoon, but not enjoying it. Jace sat in the car strapped in his car-seat while playing with a toy.

Neji, Gaara and Kiba stood by the airport entrance as they waited for their blond haired friend. They decided they would go abroad with him and explore the world outside of Japan with Naruto; besides they didn't want him to be alone.

"Don't get into any trouble." Kyuubi said, sternly and Naruto rolled his eyes.

"I won't."

Itachi ruffled his blond locks and Naruto swatted his hand away. "C'mon, you're messing up my hair. I'm not a little kid." He grumbled, pouting his lips and the Uchiha hugged him.

"I'm going to miss you." He murmured and Naruto hugged him back.

"I'm gonna miss you too." The blond smiled, blushing slightly. "You were really like my Nii-san, Itachi." The stoic man smiled, pulling away from the blond.

"And you were like the little brother I wish Sasuke was." He scoffed, stuffing his hands in his pockets and Naruto giggled. Kyuubi reached behind his back and held a toy out to the younger Uzumaki.

Naruto's blue eyes then widened. "Kyuu… you're giving me your bear?" He hesitantly grabbed it and the redhead nodded, blushing.

"Aww, so cute." Itachi wrapped his arm around the slim redhead and the shorter man scowled, looking up at him. "Oh, you're so adorable." The man gave him a peck on his forehead.

Kyuubi then looked back at his cousin. "Yeah, you can give that back to me when you return home." He smiled, widely, placing his hands on his hips.

Naruto grinned, nodding his head. "I'll defiantly bring it back, don't worry!" He beamed before Kyuubi hugged him and the blond felt himself tearing up. "I'm gonna miss you guys sooo much." He whimpered and Itachi ruffled his blond locks.

"Have fun too."

"I will." The blue eyed teen pumped his fist in the air.

"Naruto! C'mon, bro!" Kiba yelled and Naruto broke away from Kyuubi's hug.

He then turned on his heels and pulled his suitcases behind him as he made in way into the airport with his friends.

Kyuubi then turned to Itachi.

"I'm gonna miss him, even though he did eat up all my ice cream." He said, causally and the taller man laughed, walking back to the car. Kyuubi followed and got back in the car; Itachi got in the driver's side before closing the door.

"Naruto~ A-ahaaha!" Jace clapped his hands together and Kyuubi glanced back at him.

"Don't worry, we'll see him again."

Jace chewed on his toy; Kyuubi then looked down by his feet and spotted a blue stuffed rabbit. Itachi was about to step on the gas peddle until they heard Naruto yell.

"Oi, guys, wait!" The blond ran towards the car and Itachi cocked an eyebrow, turning his head. Kyuubi then leaned down and picked up the bunny before holding it out the window. Naruto panted, grabbing it.

"Couldn't forget my bunny, thanks, bye!" Naruto then took off, waving and Kyuubi chuckled. Itachi stepped on the gas peddle and the vehicle sped out the airport parking lot.

Usami-sensei: (∩︵∩) I know you hate me, but it's not over. The epilogues are next. So don't hate me(。◕‿◕。)
