OH KAMI I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY ALL THE FEELS

It's the end people! I can't believe it. This is going to take a while to get over.

I want to give big thank you-hugs to everyone reading, favoriting, following, reviewing, and being overall awesome. I'm so incredibly happy for all the praise I've gotten. Feeds my ego so nicely.

And to those reading this as a completed story: You clever bastards. XD On the other hand it was over a lot more quickly for you, compared to the four months or so it's taken me to write this.

I'm still shocked that this story became so popular, I was just writing it as a side-project at first. But I really love it! And I think I'll cry a little once I've pressed the update button...

(On a sidenote I discovered that chapter 13 was missing, so I fixed it.)

Anyway, not much more I could say right now, so I'll spare you my ramblings! Read and enjoy! This is definitely my favorite chapter:3


Chapter 42: Epilogue

'

When Naruto stepped into their apartment he was surprised as Sasuke immediately shoved him up against the door. Well, the whole shoving thing wasn't very surprising, but the words whispered seductively in his ear were.

"Welcome home Naruto. And don't get any ideas, I'm topping today."

Naruto sighed, dropping his bag of groceries on the floor. He'd gone to the supermarket after working at his part-time job, and even though he was always up for sex this was starting to become a little annoying.

"Really Sasuke, and what number in the order would this attempt be? I'm starting to wonder if you're even doing this seriously."

Sasuke scoffed at him, pushing harder against him and licking the shell of his ear.

"Hn. Say that again when my dick is in your ass."

"Oh come on teme" Naruto whined, switching their positions and rubbing up against the raven. "We both know you'll give up half-way through and beg me to fuck you."

Sasuke narrowed his eyes in warning, but when Naruto brushed their lips together and slid his hands underneath the loose t-shirt he had to bite his lip to prevent a whimper. But before Naruto's hands reached his nipples he intercepted them, collecting himself and glaring death at the blond.

"What day is it tomorrow?" he asked, the dangerous edge to his tone making Naruto wonder if he'd done anything wrong lately.

"Umm, our one year anniversary?"

"Exactly" Sasuke hissed, removing Naruto's hands from his chest and turning them around again, pinning said hands above Naruto's head. "I refuse to go a full year of this marriage without topping even once."

Naruto couldn't help himself. He started laughing, dropping his head onto Sasuke's shoulder. Bad move. He sucked in a breath and cursed when Sasuke's knee caused what was sure to become an ugly bruise on his thigh, and with eyes now watering from pain instead he raised his head to find a pissed off look on his husband's face.

"I'm sorry Sasuke, it's just that, I mean, uuh…" he faltered, having learnt the hard way that pissing off Sasuke by insulting his manliness was not a good idea.

"Hn. I thought so. Now let's go."

Sasuke let go of one hand only to drag him inside by the other, stopping and giving Naruto an unfair look screaming 'You're an idiot' when he pointed out that they had to take care of the groceries first.

Once they'd managed to reach the bedroom Sasuke pushed Naruto on the bed, then positioned himself a few steps away and crossed his arms.

"Aren't you joining me?"

"I'm not taking the risk of letting you touch me. You're going to prepare yourself for me."

Naruto pouted.

"Well you're no fun."

"Open up your pants" was the answer (more like order) he got.

"I just washed these yesterday" he complained, unbuttoning them and pulling down the zipper anyway.

"Then take them off, whatever" Sasuke said and rolled his eyes.

Naruto pulled them off, boxers, socks and shirt joining them on the floor. He knew Sasuke hated it when he threw clothes deliberately on the floor.

"You're kind of ruining the mood, glaring like that you know."

"Well that's your problem isn't it?" was the nice reply he got.

"I miss the romantic mushy Sasuke" he mumbled in a self-pitying voice, starting to stroke himself.

"You'll meet him tomorrow so you can stop feeling sorry for yourself."

"You could at least talk dirty to me."

Sasuke stared at him for a few seconds, then started talking in a monotonous voice.

"Oh god. You look so sexy like that Naruto. Yeah. Makes me so hard."

"You're a jerk."

Sasuke smirked at him, then opened up his own pants to free his already half-hard dick. Starting to play with it he raised an eyebrow at Naruto.

"Better?"

Naruto pursed his lips.

"Hn."

Sasuke scoffed at his trademark sound falling from the blond's lips.

"You could never pull it off, so don't bother trying. Start working on that tight asshole of yours instead."

A few minutes later they were both considerably more worked up; Sasuke rubbing himself slowly as Naruto fingered himself on all fours, leaning on one arm.

"Feels good doesn't it?" Sasuke asked, voice husky and slightly strained.

He was almost irrationally jealous that those fingers weren't inside him instead, but he hurriedly squashed those thoughts. He had to use every ounce of self-restraint if he wanted to go through with this. And he really wanted to.

"Mm, I'm fucking good at this aren't I?"

"Yeah yeah, are you ready yet?"

Naruto raised his head to grin at him, the sight inspiring a strange mixture of arousal and annoyance in Sasuke.

"Impatient are we? Just don't come as soon as you enter me."

Sasuke walked over and crawled onto the bed, kneeling behind Naruto and grabbing the lube to slick himself up. He groaned as he fisted himself to even out the substance, Naruto urging him to hurry up. He got into position, guiding his erection and sliding the tip over the puckered hole in front of him. Gritting his teeth he started pushing inside.

Naruto tensed up momentarily at the slight discomfort. It wasn't the first time he bottomed but it sure had been a while since the last time. He wasn't a fan, but so far everything he'd done with Sasuke was at least a thousand times better than anything he'd done before, otherwise he would have objected more to it. He let out a gasp as Sasuke suddenly sank the whole way inside, not even bothering to go slow.

"Bastard" he mumbled, but it must have fallen on deaf ears because Sasuke didn't respond.

The raven was leaning against his back, his fingers digging into Naruto's hips almost painfully, and he wondered if maybe his earlier taunt hadn't been too far off. He was grateful for the pause though, Sasuke sure filled him up nicely.

"It's fine, move" he said after another minute or so, feeling Sasuke nod his head against his skin and tentatively pull out.

If he was going to be honest it wasn't the best sex they'd ever had, but Sasuke managed to get in a few good hits that had pleasure shooting up his spine. He jerked himself off in time with the thrusting, Sasuke releasing inside him without warning, and he cursed as he furiously fisted himself in order to not be too far behind.

Sasuke groaned as he clenched around him, sliding out and falling down on his back. Naruto turned around gingerly, some of Sasuke's semen already dribbling out. It was totally hot to watch his own cum leaving Sasuke, another to feel it himself. He lay down on his side, fully intent on cuddling the raven but was given the cold shoulder.

"What is it now?" he sighed, recognizing the signs of a stage one sulking Sasuke.

Sasuke graced him with his favorite one-syllable answer.

"Come on Sasuke, I won't know unless you tell me" he coaxed, shuffling closer and succeeding in putting an arm around the other man.

Sasuke mumbled something, too quietly for Naruto to catch.

"What was that?"

"I said" Sasuke huffed, "that I should have just spared myself the trouble and let you do me."

It took a few seconds before the words sank in, but when they did a smile formed on Naruto's lips and he snuggled closer to Sasuke.

"That's nice" he mumbled.

"No it's not. It sucks. I hate you."

"Oh really? Then I guess I should just leave you here and go get started with dinner."

Sasuke grabbed his arm as he pretended to get up. Sinking back down he nuzzled Sasuke's neck affectionately.

"Don't worry about it. We'll work on it."

"Hn."

"And Sasuke?"

He turned the raven over so he could see his face, the dark eyes staring at him indignantly.

"You're gonna have to return the favor you know."

The answering blush and smack on his arm made him chuckle, the perverted smile still there. Maybe he should cash it in right now.

~Line breaker~

"Hasn't it been three years soon?"

Sasuke glanced at his brother and nodded.

"If you're counting since the engagement."

"And you still have no control over him?"

Sasuke sighed, rubbing his temples to rid himself of the imaginary headache Naruto was causing him at the moment.

"As I recall, this was your idea in the first place."

"There's nothing wrong with my idea" Itachi said, leaning back comfortably against the edge of the swimming pool. "It's your husband acting like a crazed kid that is the problem."

And sure enough Naruto seemed to have the time of his life, running around the water park and wreaking havoc wherever he went.

"Do you think they'll throw us out?"

"Don't worry about it little brother, I've got you covered."

That's the point where Naruto decided to join them again, skidding to a halt on the tiles just behind their heads and kneeling down, throwing his arms around Sasuke's neck.

"Best birthday present ever Sasuke!" he shouted excitedly, ignoring Itachi's slightly put out look. "Come on teme let's go, I found this awesome waterslide!"

"Sasuke is fine right here" Itachi said.

"No way, stop hogging him all the time Itachi! This ass belongs to me you know!"

"He's my brother, so technically it belongs to me."

Sasuke was desperately trying to breathe through the death grip Naruto had around his throat.

"Like hell it's yours" he wheezed out to his brother.

"What do you mean Sasuke? When you were a kid you always told me you'd grow up to become my bride" Itachi said in a mock hurt voice.

"Lies! All lies!"

Sasuke smacked Naruto's arm since he was chuckling.

"Nu-uh, I've got it taped."

Now Naruto burst out laughing for real and Sasuke rid himself of his grip to attack the smirking older Uchiha.

"Jeez Itachi, get yourself a boyfriend" Naruto complained once he'd stopped laughing and saved Sasuke from getting hugged to death.

"Why should I? I'm straight."

"How?" Naruto asked, his voice laced with as much disbelief as he could muster.

"What do you mean, why can't I be?"

"You just made a claim to your own brother's ass you know."

The corner of Itachi's mouth twitched. Sasuke despaired.

"Oh but Naruto dear, that doesn't mean I'm into men. It just means I'm into incest."

Naruto paled, as impossible as it sounds considering the excessive suntan he'd achieved while on their vacation.

"That explains so much" he whispered, causing Sasuke to hit him again and Itachi to grin innocently. "I don't think I can ever let you two be alone in the same room again."

"Please don't" Sasuke agreed.

"Naruto! Come on, I just got us this awesome inflatable shark! Let's go kill some tourists!" Kushina yelled, her voice carrying over most of the park.

"Count me in!" Naruto yelled just as loud, jumping to his feet and running off again.

So much for 'Can't leave you alone'.

"So…" Itachi said, giving Sasuke a pointed look as he scooted closer.

A shudder of fear ran down Sasuke's spine and he turned around as fast as possible and got out of the water.

"Wait for me!" he called after Naruto as he started running.

Itachi chuckled quietly to himself, then sighed and made himself comfortable again. Lately he just didn't get enough chances to tease his baby brother.

He was fairly sure he'd gotten him back now though. Deleting the simply perfect picture he'd taken of him yesterday, there was a limit to what he could get away with after all. So what if the picture was of him sleeping like dead on the beach due to over-activity in the bedroom while a random kid decorated him with seashells, seaweed and a crab Naruto had found.

It was a work of art.

~Line breaker~

"Sasukeeeeeee!" Naruto shouted and ran into the living room, jumping over the back of the couch but landing on the cushions instead of his husband as he'd expected to. "Sasuke? Where are you babe?"

"Don't call me that" Sasuke said, entering the room as well but at a walk like normal people.

"Why aren't you on the couch? You ruined my awesome entrance" Naruto pouted, stretching a hand out and beckoning for the raven to come over to the couch.

"I went to the bathroom during the commercials."

"Oh. Well never mind" the blond said in a much happier tone, turning the TV off with the remote.

"Hey, I was watching that" Sasuke complained as he sat down, allowing Naruto to cling to him.

"But Sasuke, they just called me!"

"They?"

"The company I had an interview with last week, remember?"

"Oh" Sasuke said, shaking his head at the memory of an unbearably nervous moron pacing back and forth in their apartment for hours before it. "And what did they say?"

Naruto grinned widely, making the peace sign.

"I guess that's a yes then."

"Aaaaah can you believe I'm gonna start my first real well-paid job! I knew suffering through university would pay off!"

"Of course it paid off."

"This is so awesome!"

"When do you start?"

"Two weeks from now." Naruto couldn't stop grinning, now also jumping up and down. "I can't wait!"

"That's still during summer" Sasuke complained.

"Bastard, you've got work too anyway don't you!"

Sasuke only huffed, easing into a better position so Naruto wasn't bending his neck in such a painful angle anymore.

"And the best part Sasuke! Now you have to keep your end of the promise!"

Sasuke smiled, he couldn't help himself when Naruto's face radiated such happiness.

"As if I intended to break it even if you didn't get the job."

"That's not good Sasuke, we need steady jobs before we even think about having kids."

Naruto didn't stop pouting even though Sasuke tapped his mouth with his index finger and then pecked his lips.

"And yet you seem to have thought this through already."

"Well someone has to be prepared!"

"Hn. I'm prepared. Actually, I already booked a meeting with the adoption agency."

"You did WHAT!?"

"You don't have to yell dobe. Come on, I knew you'd get the job, and if you didn't you'd get another one soon. It's going to take a few years to get accepted anyway, we should start as soon as possible."

Naruto stared at Sasuke, their faces were already close since Naruto half-sat on Sasuke's lap with his arms around his neck. Then he broke out into a smile, the kind of thousand-megawatt that still sent Sasuke into pleasant shivers.

"I love you bastard, you know that right?"

"Hn. You better love me."

"Ooh what should we name them?!"

"Aren't you getting a little ahead of yourself?"

"And should we get boys or girls?"

"That doesn't really matter you know."

"Hmm so both then…"

"Don't just decide on your own!"

Then Naruto started an excited rant that lasted for weeks, getting worse once they'd visited the adoption center.

Sasuke didn't really mind though.

~Line breaker~

"Sakura help meeeee~"

Sakura eyed the blond standing outside her front door with an unimpressed face.

"Rather than come whining to me every time you and Sasuke disagree on something, shouldn't you man up and fix it yourself?"

"But Sakura he's really mad at me! I didn't even do anything wrong this time!"

Sakura sighed, letting her miserable friend inside. It's not like she was really busy anyway.

"So what is it this time?" she asked bluntly, handing him a cup of tea and sitting down opposite of him at her kitchen table.

"He complains that I'm working too much!"

"Then you probably are."

"But I want to hurry up and save money for our baby!"

"And Sasuke disagrees with you because?"

Naruto sighed, running a hand through his unruly hair and pouting.

"He says there's no point saving money if I die from over-working myself before we even have the baby" he muttered.

"So obviously Sasuke is right. Now go home, apologize, do what he says and stop bothering me."

"But that's not all Sakura! He's gotten all moody lately, always nagging at me and nothing's good enough! I don't know what I'm supposed to do!"

"Naruto," Sakura started, using her serious voice that for once made Naruto listen intently to her, "how long have you and Sasuke been married now?"

"Umm… a little over four years?"

"Don't ask me you airhead!" She sighed. "Look, all couples have good times and bad times alright? Honestly I'm surprised you've been this crazily lovey-dovey up until now. Maybe you've finally settled into a routine. When was the last time you surprised Sasuke and did something romantic together?"

"You mean like extra intense sex?"

"Idiot!" she yelled and hit him over the head. "Romantic, not sexual! Like going out for dinner, or taking a trip together, or just cuddle on the couch for hours."

"Hmm… I guess it's been a while since we did something like that… Ah! I know exactly what to do! Thanks Sakura, it's surprising how good advice you give considering you're still single."

The cracking of knuckles made Naruto realize his mistakes, and chuckling nervously he rubbed his neck, getting out of the chair and hurriedly escaping towards safety.

'

The next day Sasuke came home from work in a bad mood. No, bad wasn't nearly close enough. He was pissed. Not only had Naruto been annoying him lately, he just called him to say there'd been a water leak in their apartment and he had to get home. That dobe really didn't care that maybe he was actually in the middle of something important.

But fine, he was home now. Opening the door and stepping inside he didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, and certainly no water. If anything the hallway was neater than usual. Maybe in case the water spread.

Walking further inside the scent of cleaning products assaulted his nose, and curiosity getting the best of him he walked around the apartment, finding it spotless and shiny. Reaching the bedroom last he found Naruto sitting on their bed, a faintly nervous look on his face as he stood up.

"I took the day off and cleaned. And I also did the laundry and went grocery shopping and I fixed that broken mirror in the bathroom, and I bought a new coffee machine" he rambled, almost too fast for Sasuke to understand.

"Why a new coffee machine?" he asked with a raised eyebrow.

"Well, you've been saying that the coffee isn't as good lately, so I thought maybe there was something wrong with it, it was pretty old anyway."

"Hn. This is nice and all, but couldn't it have waited 'til I finished work? I had a pretty busy day."

"I know" Naruto said and walked over to him, sneaking his arms around his waist and kissing his cheek. "I just wanted to spend some time together, you're right, I've been working too much and I've been neglecting you. I'm sorry."

Sasuke met his gaze for a few seconds then sighed.

"It's okay, I forgive you. I haven't been the best company either."

Naruto's lips quirked upwards.

"You've been a little tense, I noticed. Lucky you that I know just the way to cure it."

His voice dropped an octave or two, turning seductive as he led Sasuke over to the bed. Forcing him to sit down he loosened Sasuke's dark green tie, taking it off and tossing it onto the bedside table. Then he opened up the first three buttons in the blue dress shirt, smiling impishly the whole time.

"Why don't you find a more comfortable position?" he suggested, following Sasuke as he scooted backwards.

He gave Sasuke a deep kiss, and the raven moaned into it. He couldn't believe it had already been a week since they had sex last time. Naruto let his hands trace down over Sasuke's chest, fiddling with the belt once he reached it.

"I really wouldn't mind a blowjob" Sasuke said when Naruto let go of his lips to expertly lick his throat.

"One blowjob coming up" Naruto mumbled in his ear, already successful in his attempts to free Sasuke's cock from its confines.

Not wasting any more time the blond eased down Sasuke's body, eyes on the prize. Caressing pale hips he created a wet path along the underside of it, Sasuke sinking down to rest his head on a pillow, thrusting upwards for more contact. Taking the hardening appendage into his mouth Naruto hummed around it, rolling his tongue and using his teeth just the way he knew drove his second half crazy.

It didn't take long for Sasuke to fall apart, squirming and twisting the sheets as Naruto went down on him without mercy. He came with a gasp, letting it all out in Naruto's mouth.

"Feel better now?" Naruto asked as he hovered on all fours above the slightly panting raven.

"Make me come a few more times and then ask me again."

Naruto snorted, leaning down to initiate another slow kiss. The fact that Sasuke still made him feel like a horny teenager every time they had sex had him smiling into it, and breaking the kiss to peck the tip of a pale nose he ghosted his fingertips over the smooth skin on Sasuke's face.

"I'll work less from now on, I promise."

Sasuke blew some air through his nose, smiling back at him.

"I don't like not having your full attention you know. I'm jealous of the kid we haven't even met yet."

Naruto snorted again and gave him a chaste kiss.

"Then let's make the best of our freedom while we still have it" he said suggestively, wiggling his eyebrows and making Sasuke laugh.

"Sounds good to me."

~Line breaker~

"I'm surprised you dare to sit down next to me looking so troubled."

Sasuke glanced at Gaara. Honestly he hadn't noticed the red-head already sitting on the couch in Kiba's apartment; if he had he might have contemplated going somewhere else. As it was he couldn't bring himself to care.

"Don't flatter yourself, you're hardly a threat anymore. Back with Sai again are you?"

"Having a lover's quarrel at an engagement party are you?"

"Don't try to be smart with me Gaara, I don't like you."

"And apparently you don't like your cousin either, so I guess he and I are just made for each other."

Sasuke took a sip of his drink, grimacing at the overly sweet taste.

"Isn't it annoying to have such an on and off relationship?" he asked, not particularly interested, but not bored enough to settle for silence.

"We can't all find the love of our life right underneath our noses."

Gaara's tone was faintly mocking, but not bitter. Maybe Sai was right and he really had gotten over Naruto.

"So the reason you're with Sai isn't to make your stalking easier? Or maybe you just enjoy annoying me."

Gaara sent him a look that could almost have come off as amused.

"If I annoy you it's a bonus."

"Hn."

"So" Gaara said after a brief pause, "when are you going to admit defeat and let Naruto get what he wants?"

"What Naruto wants is a house that has no good qualities whatsoever."

"It can't be that bad."

Sasuke turned his head to give him a look that clearly told him that yeah, it really was that bad.

"He only wants it because it's close to a ramen restaurant. I'm not kidding. He'll get fat. He'll get me fat."

"Not to mention the kids."

"As if I'd let him bring them up on ramen. But no, I'm not giving in until he understands that there's more to choosing a home for your future kids than how close the nearest ramen place is."

"Sounds harsh." Gaara didn't sound sympathetic at all.

"It is" Sasuke answered, the lack of compassion or even interest going unnoticed.

"You guys doing alright?" the suddenly appearing Kiba asked, that honeymoon-phase-glow obvious in his whole appearance.

"Having the time of our lives" Gaara answered.

"That's cool. Oh Sasuke, by the way, you know Naruto would have agreed to pick your house if you hadn't called ramen, and I quote, 'slimy tasteless junk'."

"Mature" Gaara mumbled, and Kiba laughed out loud.

Sasuke froze, then groaned to himself. He should have known.

"Excuse me" he said, getting up from the couch, "but I guess I have to go apologize to ramen."

~Line breaker~

"Isn't he the most adorable thing you've ever seen?"

"Oh look, he's scrunching up his face, so cute."

"I bet he picked that up from his mommy."

Both Naruto and Kushina looked up to grin at Sasuke.

"Will you stop it with the 'mommy' deal already? I'm a man. I have a dick."

"Sasuke! What kind of language is that in front of your baby son!" Kushina chastised him, and Sasuke groaned inwardly for the umpteenth time since Naruto's and his own parents had come over to visit.

At least Minato didn't call him mommy, but he might be the only one.

"You should be proud Sasuke, being a mother is a great responsibility."

If his father thought he was cheering him up then he failed miserably.

"I just don't see why we can't both be dads" he muttered, but as usual no one paid attention to him.

He feared for what would happen once the kid grew older and Itachi managed to come up with ways to get to him alone. Or – god forbid – letting him stay over at his grandparent's place on his own.

No, it was probably better to focus on the present.

"Say hi to your mommy Tetsuya" Naruto said in a sing-song voice, holding up the baby's little hand and waving it at Sasuke.

Sasuke tried very hard to ignore the adorableness that was his son.

"Oh just hand him over" he finally said in a testy voice. "You're clearly only using him for your own amusement."

Naruto carefully picked little Tetsuya up from his secure place in his arms and gave him to Sasuke without any protesting.

If there was anything he thought was more adorable than looking at his son it was watching his husband holding him. The way Sasuke's face lit up in wonder and pure love couldn't be described with words.

Later, when their parents had finally left and Naruto had cleaned up the kitchen he went into the spacious living room of the house they bought about a year ago, finding Sasuke lying on the couch with the pink-clad (courtesy of Sasuke's grandma) baby asleep on his chest. He sank down on the floor next to them, removing a stray strand of hair from Sasuke's forehead.

"Hey" he said quietly.

Sasuke smiled and took a light hold of his chin, guiding him down for a kiss.

"Can you believe we're actually dads now?" Sasuke then said, a smile on his face.

"You mean mom and dad" Naruto had to point out, just barely dodging when Sasuke tried to hit him. "But yeah, I know what you mean."

Sasuke carefully brushed his fingers through the tiny tuft of hair on Tetsuya's head.

"It's a crazy feeling" he mumbled.

Naruto put one arm behind Sasuke's head, leaning over so that their foreheads connected. He raised his other hand to intertwine it with one of Sasuke's, closing his eyes and smiling.

"I love you so much" he whispered, and felt Sasuke squeeze his hand in response. "Both of you, so much."

"I know. I love you too."

If it was possible to become happier than they were in that moment, then they sure didn't know how to achieve it.

~Line breaker~

"Mommy."

Sasuke almost jumped, startled by Tetsuya's voice. He'd been spacing out, cleaning up the kitchen after lunch, and now he looked down at the small seven-year-old boy, his light-blue hair a little ruffled and the just as light eyes staring seriously up at Sasuke.

"Can I go play outside?"

Sasuke smiled, patting the little boy's head.

"Sure, let's go get you dressed alright?"

The kid nodded, walking ahead towards the hallway to put on his winter clothes. Just as they were trying to find a lost glove the sound of small feet running reached them, and sure enough a moment later there was a loud "Tetsu~!" before the small girl glomped her brother.

"Sa'ski wants to play with Tetsu!"

Tetsuya patted his little sister's light brown hair, otherwise seemingly un-faced.

"Come here then Satsuki, I'll help you with your clothes" Sasuke said, stretching his arms out towards the four-year-old.

After struggling for a few minutes to dress his overly excited daughter and another few to find the missing glove he finally shooed them out the door, walking into the living room to make sure they made it safely to the backyard. He twitched when Satsuki tripped on the snow, but she got up again laughing as if it was nothing, and he relaxed again with a sigh.

Having kids wasn't good for his nerves.

"Hey mom" Naruto said, sneaking up behind him and encircling his waist with his arms.

"Hn. I might let the kids call me mom, but you better watch it."

"Hmm" Naruto mused, burying his nose in Sasuke's neck and hugging him tighter. "But you're such a good mommy. The best in the world."

Sasuke smiled, relaxing into Naruto's touch and watching their children run around outside, playing some sort of tag. When he felt fingers sneaking underneath his shirt though he frowned, turning his head to give the owner of those wandering hands a questioning look.

"You know, they seem pretty busy over there, shouldn't we go get some alone time?" Naruto said with a suggestive look, brushing his lips over Sasuke's cheek.

"We'll just get interrupted, like always. Dobe."

"Mm but I have a good feeling about today…"

"You mean you're horny enough not to care."

"Might be" Naruto answered innocently. "Come on, we'll be quick."

Sasuke gave him an amused look but followed him into their bedroom, allowing his husband to push him down on the bed. Naruto got down beside him, running a hand over his chest before kissing him, embracing him again and pressing their bodies together. They spent a good amount of time simply kissing and touching slowly despite Naruto's earlier comment, enjoying a rare moment with neither of them on the verge of falling asleep.

Sasuke's prediction proved to be correct though. The voice of a sobbing Satsuki was suddenly heard, calling for her mommy.

"Just once, couldn't they call for 'daddy' instead?" Sasuke muttered, untangling himself from Naruto and getting up to assess the damage.

"It's because we love you so much" Naruto grinned, following him out of the room.

Halfway into the living room, having entered via the door to the porch, stood a sniffling Satsuki. Once she saw Sasuke walking towards her she ran forwards, throwing herself into his arms to be comforted.

And since she hadn't taken off her shoes the floor was covered in wet footsteps. Naruto snickered but shut up when Sasuke glared at him, not needing words to make him understand that he'd be the one cleaning up the mess. He raised his eyes to see Tetsuya trudging inside as well, fortunately stopping just inside on the rug, closing the door letting in the cold air behind him.

"Care to explain?" Sasuke asked the boy, who answered with a blank stare.

"She threw a snowball at me so I threw one back."

Sasuke sighed, and Naruto tried to stifle his chuckles.

"It hurt" Satsuki wailed, turning around to glare at her brother.

As Sasuke proceeded to explain to their son for the umpteenth time that he had to be more careful with his sister Naruto leaned against the wall, enjoying the scene more than he probably should.

He couldn't help it.

He had the three people he loved the absolute most gathered together in one room, creating yet another precious memory.

Thinking back to when they just got engaged, remembering how he'd whined about how he didn't want to spend the rest of his life with Sasuke…

It's incredible how things turned out in the end.

Noticing that his little family didn't seem to be reaching a truce anytime soon he shook his head and walked over to mediate.

He'd get them smiling soon enough.

And then they'd just keep living happily ever after.

~THE END~


Oh god I don't want to write this last AN down here... *sniffles*

As for their kids, I admit that I borrowed characters from Kuroko no basket, which I obviously don't own either. I just couldn't stop myself once I got the thought of making them Sasuke's and Naruto's kids in my head. It's too adorbs.

Anyway, I really hope you enjoyed reading this story at least half as much as I enjoyed writing it! There might be some question marks regarding the other characters, if you really want to know you can just ask me and I'll make up an answer for you, otherwise I'll just leave it up to your imagination.

Lots of love for all of you! Hope to see you in future or past stories!
