Fourth round: Daddy´s Little Girl
Uchiha Sasuke had never felt any attraction for anyone, neither male nor female. He had no time for such shallow emotions and did have lots of things to keep himself busy, very busy. He had to do excellent in school so that he could enter the best University of the country as his father expected him to. He and his brother were going to succeed his father´s charge in the family company someday, so he had to get familiar with the business as much as he could and this implied that he had a part-time job in such company. Apart from his duties, and like any other boy of his age, Sasuke liked sports, or in his case, arts. He and his whole family had being practicing the art of fighting since the samurai era. Besides, he wanted to be as good as his brother was, thus he had to train very hard.
So Sasuke was busy, but a happy busy boy. He did not feel the need of having a romantic life. If anything, he thought that thing called "love" really stank. It made his best friend more stupid that he already was, and it made even the smartest guy in class a total fool. As far as he was concerned no woman (apart from his mother, of course) in the world deserved his attention much less his affection. The majority was just too plain to notice, others were so damp annoying, or boring, or shallow, or mean. There was always "a but" in every girl he had the disgrace to meet. Sasuke wondered that if Itachi was able to do put up the all things an Uchiha boy had to do when he was younger and still being a womanizer, was because he was a genious, and because Itachi had no good taste in girls anyway.
Too bad his brother did not think the same way. When Sasuke was still twelve Itachi said that in anytime soon he would be teaching his little brother, the art of girl chasing. Apparently Itachi was a way too anxious to give that the lesson because when Sasuke told him he was not interested, he made a total fuss about it. It was him who made their parents worry about his love life, Sasuke knew. He was used to Itachi´s "pranks" but sometimes his genius brother crossed the line, like when his father wanted to have the "talk" or when he wanted to take him to the doctor because he apparently was not normal. Sasuke could bet his new car those awkward situations were Itachi´s fault; after all he was crazy manipulator with no limits of what was fun and what was not.
Fortunately, Itachi and his parents grew tired of trying to get him a girlfriend and let him being the way he was, and so he lived happily ever after. Or at least he thought so.
One day while listening to his favorite band Sasuke found himself thinking how awkwardly comfortable it felt to be around his new best girl friend. He never saw it coming, he should have, but did not. He liked his friend; that explained everything, the nervousness when she was close, why he smiled more often, why he was the first one to talk to her, why he suddenly was friendlier than usual.
Sasuke started hyperventilating and got up of the bed so as not to chock himself. This could not be happening to him, he thought. Then, the next days he tried to deny his feelings, but soon enough he realized it did not do anything good to him, so he accepted that he, the great Sasuke Uchiha had fallen into the trap of love. Anyway, he thought being in love was not so bad after all. Love cannot be bad, can it? He loved his Mom, and Dad, and also Itachi (despite their bickering) and his pet too; and what about his extended family? He loved them too. Besides, being with his new friend felt nice and normal, and it felt like he had known her since ever. She was different from all girls, and had something that made her interesting and cool. She was not shallow, or mean, or boring or annoying and her name was Karin; it was pretty and he promised himself to make her his not matter what.
Finally one day his efforts gave results and she accepted to be his girlfriend and even accepted to meet his family and even more better she did not run after the meeting like he was afraid so. He felt like the happiest person in the world. He had his Mom, Dad, Big bro, his cat and now his wonderful girlfriend; the best of it was that they got really on well. Karin had no family and his parents loved her like the daughter they never had, even Itachi liked her, too. What anything else could he ask for?
To have his best friend and his girlfriend get along, of course!

Next chapter: the dinner with Sasuke´s family and Karin will be addressed, but the main thing will be how she and Naruto react to each other.
