Minna-san!! Konnichiwa!! How are you to day? I hope your fine!!
You remember what we have learnt last time? The "Janai" thing I told you that the negative form of "desu" is "janai" & both of them have a past form "Datta" & "janakatta" .
I told you also that the next lesson (This lesson) will be about the interrogative form but I changed my mind because it's too easy All what you have to do is to add the particle "ka" at the end of the sentence Like this:
"Anata wa Hiroto desu" . "You're Hiroto"
"Anata wa Hiroto desu ka?" .. "Are you Hiroto?"
So I decided to teach you something more useful & I guess you will like it!! How to say "I like something" & "I don't like something"!!

Deidara inwardly groaned. Tobi was in another one of his moods where he saw fit to
question the meaning of life. Of course, Deidara was always the victim of Tobis questions.
Leave me alone, un! The blond artist had been trying to sculpt, but the boy in the
swirly mask that also occupied the room seemed determined to make that an impossibility.
But senpai, this is important! Tobi whined. Deidara sighed and dropped his clay on the
table, spinning around in his chair so that he could glare at Tobi.
What? The artist snapped. Tobi hung his head.
SMILE FOR MEItachi Uchiha was sitting on the couch in the living room of the Akatsuki base, trying to focus on watching the TV. This was made rather difficult first by the screams coming from Zetsus room, and then by a pair of arms wrapping around his neck. Can I help you?SMILE FOR ME8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Hi Itachi, un, Deidara said, nuzzling the weasel gently. Whatcha doing, un?
Trying to watch TV, Itachi said in an irritated tone, hoping it would make the blonde go away.
Instead, Deidara merely climbed over the couch, flopping down next to the weasel. Can I sit with you, un?
Deidara grinned and sat up, snuggling into the Uchihas side. Thanks, un.
Itachi silently wrapped an arm around the blondes oh-so-feminine waist, pulling him even closer to the weasel. Deidara took this opportunity to climb into the Uchihas lap, snuggling into Itachis chest. Youre being awfully quiet, un, he remarked
When Night's Alive-Sasodei 12Deidara lets out a soft moan, becoming way too hot under his covers; he manages to get them off only to be thrown into a world of coolness. A slight smile tugs onto his lips while gently nuzzling into whatever it was. He lies there for quite sometime, enjoying the pillow for a minute till he at last opens his eyes to stare into two grey orbs.When Night's Alive-Sasodei 128 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Danna I thought you left by now, why are you still here, un? He murmurs, noticing that instead of being in the sitting position like last night he was lying on the bed. The red haired male glances down at the blonde thoughtfully for a moment.
To make sure that Jiro wouldnt come back, besides your father would have heard me trying to leave. The blonde blinks in surprise and slowly sits up, staring at Sasori causing the red head to raise an eyebrow, What?
The shorter male tilts his head before asking softly, Even if he didnt come back would you still be here? At first nothing except f
EMO ANGEL part 7A few days later, Itachi gave Kisame his locker combination, so the shark could bring home his books. It was looking like the weasel was going to be out of commission for a while, a fact that the shark hated. Not only did he have to spend all day without Itachi around, but it was downright painful to see his only friend lying on the couch, covered in bruises and cuts.EMO ANGEL part 78 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Still, the shark couldnt be entirely upset. Having the weasel stay in his apartment helped ease the sharp loneliness he normally felt when he came home from school. Plus, he was learning more and more about the Uchiha. It was true what they said about having to live with someone to find out who they really were.
For example, Kisame found out that his new roommate had a dango fetish.
Hed known that Itachi like sweets, so when hed gone grocery shopping, hed picked up a few sticks of the sweet treat for his friend. When hed arrived back at his apartment, Itachi had been curled up on the couch, s
I NEED YOU epilogueKisame heard the bathroom door open and turned in time to see his partner walk out of the room. He made no move to hide the fact that his eyes were drinking in the sight of near-naked Uchiha, and for once the weasel didnt seem to mind. He merely walked across the room and began to dress, after telling Kisame he could use the shower now. The shark took this as a get-out-so-I-can-dress-in-peace and entered the bathroom, stripping down before climbing into the tub.I NEED YOU epilogue8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
As Kisame let the hot water wash over his sore limbs, he continued to think about Itachi. He wasnt sure what his feelings really were for the weasel. It wasnt just a partnership, or love, or something as simple as that. He relied on the Uchiha in a fight, expected him to react negatively when called a female, trusted him to remain calm and collected at all times, needed him to-
That was it. Put simply, Kisame needed Itachi, as much a plant needed sunlight or a person needed oxygen.

Tobi wondered through the halls of the new akatsuki hideout for probably and hour... Or more. The walls of the long and seemed-to-go-on-forever halls of the new and improved akatsuki hideout (after Sasori and Sakura's little spat) were the perfect place to just go on a long indoor walk. Tobi tends to want to walk as he thinks rather than lay in a bed or relax in a bathtub. And God knows he had a lot to think about.
After finishing his fourth mission with his 'beloved' senpai, Tobi was in a rather shock by something that came up while Deidara and Tobi went on their little adventure.
While Tobi and Deidara were walking on a trail back to the akatsuki hideout, Tobi felt like disrupting the soothing silence that had befallen them. He remembered as they were in a town during their mission that happened to be celebrating a holiday or just having a good parade for the heck of it. He remembered seeing the dancers in the street and strangely thought that might be a fun subject to di

Deidara kicked the ground, and shuffled his feet, uttering some "un"s once in a while.
"Danna, un..." He whispered, sitting down in front of the lifeless body. He ran his fingers through the ruby red locks. The blond pulled the puppet's head into his lap, even though it would never again react warmly to his advances. Even if he kept the body forever, the red head wouldn't reply to his kisses, hugs, whines, nags, or explosions. "Sasori..." He murmured. The body that lay before him held no life, and was eerily still. And again, the blond whispered, "Sasori-danna, un...come back..." No matter how many times he pleaded, Sasori never opened his eyes, smiled up at Deidara and kissed him.
If it was some kind of sick joke, Sasori would have ended it by now.

Kisame pondered his reason as he and Itachi walked along a road, heading back to their base after a recent mission. Itachi had managed to overuse his eyes yet again, so he was sticking close to the shark. Kisame found this strange; the weasel knew Kisame was likely to kill him, yet he still relied on the shark for protection at times like this.

Yes. The Akatsuki disappeared from sight, and a moment later screams echoed through the forest. Their pursuers were now the ones being attacked.
