Xanadu Among HorsesXanadu Farm.
It's old and dilapidated and mushy and ooshey and grimy. Most of all grimy. It's most certainly not the glorious
marble palace of Kublai Kahn. It's a proper working farm that demands sweat to seep out of every pore and gives back only
painful calluouses and a sense of fulfillment. The barn was leaning in on itself in a haphazard and careless manner. I'd
had nightmares that the old mold heap would fall down on me in a moist and crumbling vise of a heap. It never did.
Manure and compost.
The stench of them goes hand in hand up you nose and down the back of your mouth to lie it's tired-self down on your
tongue for a bit, for even the odors have to labor away on Xanadu farm. After a while, you'll come to welcome the reek as it
becomes associated with happy memories. It becomes, 'homey', if you can stand to bear it.

"But Guy, the team needs me!!" Naruto began complaining. Guy sighed.
"I know, but rules are rules. You need good grades in order to compete."
"Who's dumb idea was that!?!" Naruto pouted. It just wasn't fair. It's not like he wanted those classes. He needed them to graduate.
Naruto was failing in science and math, the two subjects Naruto was the worst at. All those numbers and formulas, who in there right mind remembers that useless stuff?
"Look, you obviously need help. Why don't you go to your teachers for help after school?"
Now Naruto was the one sighing. "Because no matter how many times I go in, they just don't make sense. It's not that I didn't pay attention in class, it's that I can't follow what they're saying. So when all they do is just repeat what they say in class it really doesn't help."
Guy nodded understandingly. He knew Naruto was a good kid and that what he was saying was probably true, but what could he do?
"Have you ever consider asking one of the other students

I was the only one with a helmet on, and I didn't want to panic him.
"Kid, take my helmet off and put it on yourself" I yelled over the sound, feeling his warm fingers brush under my jaw as he took off the helmet, and the small click that indicated he had it on. I could tell he was curious, and hesitant. I skidded across a corner sharply, looking for anywhere with grass.
"Do you trust me?!" I yelled loudly, feeling Kids arms tighten around me and his whole frame shudder as he sucked in a sob
"Slow down, please!"

Naruto wasn't paying attention. Well, to what he was saying anyways. He was however paying attention to something else. Sasuke's lips. There was something about them that seemed to draw him in. They looked so soft he wondered he was slowly leaning towards Sasuke, who at that time was glancing down at the book and was unprepared for what was about to happen next. Naruto kissed him. Naruto could feel fireworks going off inside him. But when he noticed Sasuke had stopped talking and was looking at him with wide eyes, Naruto pulled back.

'So call him.' He remembered Shino saying to him.
Sasuke sighed. But about what? That and wouldn't it seem weird that he would have his number? After all, Naruto didn't give it to him, Shino did. Sasuke sighed. He knew Shino meant well but just then his phone ringed.

Sasuke was twiddling his thumbs as he waited for Naruto to come out of the bathroom. Naruto was spending the night! IN HIS ROOM!! Itachi had lied telling Naruto that Dieara was going to be sleeping on the coach (much to Diedara's dismay) so Naruto would have to share a bed with Sasuke. Sasuke was trying to take a deep breath. That wasn't until later. It was still afternoon so that wasn't going to happen for a few hours. Sasuke needed to relax.
Naruto was nerve wrecked. He had just gotten over the whole 'dream' thing and was sure he could control himself (hence the pause on the phone) but HE WAS GONNA HAVE TO SHARE A BED WITH HIM!?!? Naruto splashed some cold water on his face, hoping to wash off his dirty thoughts along with it. But sadly, no such thing happened.
" are you sure this is a good idea?" Diedara asked worryingly to Itachi as they sat in the living room.
"Why wouldn't it? What other possible way could you get closer to someone than by sleeping with them?"

"G-good morning "
Naruto smiled "Come on." He commented as he pulled Sasuke towards him. "Let's go take a shower."
"Ah-ah shower?" Sasuke's voice gave way and squeaked.
"Why not? Were both boys."
Naruto pulled him off the bed and lead the way to the bathroom with their hands still in hand. Sasuke blushed. They were holding hands and they were gonna take a shower TOGETHER!! Naruto had opened the door and pulled Sasuke in before he shutted the door with the other hand.
Naruto let go which made Sasuke a little sad at first, but then he saw Naruto take off his pants, SLOWLY. Naruto's eyes never left Sasuke's, and his smirk grew more devious as he continued drawing Sasuke's attention.

Sasuke was so lost in his haze that all he could do
