The Water Guardian's Lover
Naruto x Irma
The Guardian of Water found herself alone, yet again, on another Friday night. The other guardians were spending time with their boyfriends, leaving Irma the odd girl out, yet again. So she decided to go to the one place that would cheer her up. The Beach.
Since it was a nice warm day, she figured she could go for a swim. After leaving a note for her parents, she began making her way to the beach. It was a normal day and people bustling and hustling about.
"Stop! Thief!" Irma turned in response to the shout, when the next thing she knew a tall man pushed her out of the way. The force of the push knocked Irma off balancing, sending her falling to the ground. Since she couldn't use her powers in public without exposing her and her friends she braced for the impact. A loud scream left her lips during the fall when suddenly her descent was stopped.
Irma open opened her eyes and found herself face to face with a young male who appeared to be roughly about her age, maybe older. "Are you alright?" He had long blonde hair in an unusual style, it was spiky like those characters in the show her brother liked to watch. He was wearing an orange of all things T-shirt with blue jeans and black and white sneakers. He also appeared to what looked like whiskers. Though considering all the things Irma had seen in the past two years it wasn't all that strange.
"Uugh, what?" she dimly asked as a faint blush appeared on her cheeks. Being the boy crazy girl that she is, she couldn't help but note that he was cute.
"I asked if you were alright?" he asked with a kindly smile.
"Yeah," she said dreamily before collecting her wits. "Yes! I am right okay!" she rambled on before mentally kicking herself. Now was not the time to act like a goofball.
"That's good to hear." he remarked as he helped her up. "My name is Naruto Uzumaki," he introduced himself and extended his hand.
"I'm Irma Lair." she replied, shaking his hand. "I can't believe that jerk would knock me over like that. Apparently his parents never thought him out to treat a lady." she added with an annoyed hmphed, resting her balded fists on her hips. She quickly turned her attention back to the smirking. "I've never seen you around here before. Did you recently move here?" she asked as the blond nodded.
He folded his arms against his stomach. "A few days ago actually. I'm trying to familiarize myself with the area. I have an aunt who pays my rent and furnishing while I attend school so its not like I can put off knowing where the grocery market is at. This might be late to mention, but hopefully my Italian is bearable."
"You kidding, you're a natural." she complimented as she began playing with her hair.
"Yeah well," he remarked as used his right hand to pull out the folded map that rested under his left pit. "I wish I could say the same for my directions."
"I can show you around!" she enthusiastically volunteered a little too excitedly. She began to blush furiously as she turned away and take a moment to collect herself. "I, well you know, to say thank you and all because I've lived here my whole life so I know where everything is at, not that I'm bragging or anything, but you know what I'm trying to say and I'm just going to be quiet now." Irma said feeling incredibly foolish.
"Nonsense," Naruto responded with a grin. "If you're going to be my tour guide that involves a lot of talking and how else am I suppose to get to know you better or say lunch?"
'Is he asking me out?' Irma mentally wondered, trying to be as calm as possible. The fluttering sensation in her stomach and the urge to burst out into giggles was not helping at all.
"I'm sorry if this is really presumptuous or if you're seeing someone, but I'm not what you would call patient or subtle." the blond explained with a sheepish grin. "Besides, I can't notice how cute you look with that shade of red you're wearing."
"You know how to flatter a girl." She joked, a smile forming under the hand that was covering it. For some strange reason unless their name was Martin, boys never shown much an interest in her.
After hours of walking and exploring the city they finally came to the dessert shop that Irma recommended. The two of them were sharing a Banana Split, their third one in fact signifying their status as large eaters. "So you never mentioned where you were going to school?"
"Well I was enrolled into the Sheffield Institute."
"No way!" she exclaimed. "I go to that school too. It must be fate."
Naruto chuckled, "I'm not one for believing Fate. We people make our own destinies."
'Then this is one Destiny I wouldn't mind shaping.' she thought. After they finished their dessert the two of them walked down the street. They continued chatting as Naruto walked Irma home. They arrived to door step as Irma turned to face him. "When will I see again?"
"Soon, I have to continue to settle in, but I promise I'll call you." Naruto couldn't remember the last time he had fun.
"Well, just to make sure," Irma remarked as she walked off the steps and down to Naruto. She pecked him on the cheek. "A little incentive. I'll see you soon." she remarked, hopefulness in her voice. Saying their final good bye a blissful sigh escaped Irma's lips. Today couldn't have gone any better.
Naruto continued on his way to the direction of his place of residence. Suddenly the crystal he kept neatly tucked into his pocket went off. A huge shadow loomed overhead and Naruto turned to face it. "You!" For that thing to be here meant it was getting stronger, and soon he would be broken from free from his prison.
So yeah, its kind of annoying that people won't stay in their own damn rooms and watch their own damn TVs. Makes it really difficult to focus and write. Sorry everyone, I'm going to have to start writing somewhere else in order for me to focus. All and all, I hope this was a satisfactory first chapter.
Naruto x Irma FTW A.K.A Stomachshipping.
