"Yup its me berry head. Whats up?"
"Uh nothing really...uh why are you here?"
"Are you stupid? Its our fucking one month anniversary Ichi I would think you would remember that baka."
Ichigo blushed a bit. Damn he really did forget. A whole month with Grimmjow. Neither if them were dead either. A feat like that did deserve a celebration. Though it was weird that the arrancar remembered.
"Well I got ya a present."
"Yeah fuckin really now get yer hot ass over here and open it."
Ichigo sat in the arrancars lap on his bed and was handed the silver box. Inside was a teal kitty plushie.
"Aw how cute! Its even got a pissed off look on its face! It looks just like you!"
The shinigami laughed and turned around to give the other a big hug.

So Naruto, where would you like to go first the- Sasuke was interrupted by Narutos stomach.
Naruto blushed and covered his stomach with his arms. Sasuke raised an eyebrow.
Want to get some food? He asked smirking.
Naruto nodded sheepishly, so Sasuke steered the horse towards a restaurant. Once there Sasuke and Naruto received there menus and Naruto pointed to the dish he wanted.
Ramen? Sasuke shrugged. One bowl of ramen for my companion and Carula Curry Chicken in a Skillet for me.

Great. He thought sarcastically while blinking his eyes until they were completely open.
He checked the room, Sasuke wasnt there but on a desk at the opposite side of the bed was a note, a bowl of steaming ramen, and some of Sasukes clothes. Sasuke and he wore the same size so sharing clothes was ok.
Naruto got up and got changed before anything else. His wet clothes were irritating his skin. Once he had the clothes on he sat down in the chair and glanced around the room. Checking, as if someone had entered or was about to; then he picked up the note and read it.
Wow...not really sure what to say, but here is some clothes and ramen.
Naruto scratched the back of his head. Truthfully, he didnt know what to say either. Was he supposed to go up to Sasuke and just blurt out I love you too.
Naruto sat and pondered that for a minute, actually that might work.

Byakuya walked over to him, his eyes looking no more or less tired than usual.
"Renji-kun..." He looked at the man, calmly taking in the quiet setting around them. "...it would seem that she wants you to hold her." he said, extending the child out to him.
Renji slowly took the baby and cradled her gently.

"Sasuke..why your house?"
"Just go in, Usuratonachi." Sasuke pushed Naruto throught the doors of his house. When Naruto's eyes focused to the darkness Sasuke turned on the light hurting his eyes.
"Teme! I was just getting used to the darkness too!" He rubbed his eyes now ajusting to the light. Inside it was fairly clean as if someone just yesterday cleaned the place. "Wow, I wish my house was as big as this."
"It's only the living room." Sasuke said as he walked down one of the many halls, Naruto following along taking in the view. Come to think of it this is the first time I think that I've been here. It's huge I wonder what he does with all this extra space?
"This is where you'll be sleeping tonight." Sasuke said pointing to a dimly lit room at the end of the hall. "My room's right across the hall and the bathroom's down there." Sasuke said pointing to a door on the right. Naruto nodded and went into the dark room. His hands laced the wall trying to

A couple of hangers were left in the closet but he didnt need them that badly so he just left them. Other than that the room was bare, he sighed then turned and walked down the hallway pass the kitchen and out the front door.
Outside was his black corvette, the back seat filled with bags and boxes. Next to his car, loading in one of the last boxes was his blond housemate, Naruto.
Right, is that the last one? Naruto asked stretching out his back.
Yeah. Sasuke responded throwing the bag he had on his shoulder into the passenger seat.
There was a minute of awkward silence until, of course, Naruto broke it.
Hope you and your brother get to know each other. He said smiling a weak smile.

He took her into his arms and rubbed her back.
"Do you feel sick?"
Hinoro sniffled, rubbing her teary eyes.

"Taicho! No go!" she wimpered.
"Ah... Hinoro..." Renji whispered, coddling her. "It's ok... Taicho's right here."
He kissed her cheek.
She looked up at him and nodded, wiping her eyes.
"Taicho..." she muttered, looking sleepy.
He nuzzled her, sliding into the bed.

Renji watched Hinoro sleep in the bed, the covers up to her little ears.

Another scream, another dodge, another explosion of energy and Ichigo was on the ground again, scrambling quickly to his feet before the next swift attack could hit him. He gripped Zangetsu tightly in his hand, swinging wildly through the cloud of dust in hopes of his blade making contact with the target. It was no use.
Before Ichigo could blink, there was a blade to his neck and a body at his back. He immediately tensed, his breathing becoming erratic and his heart beat quickening.
You've gotten slower.
Ichigo scoffed and a scowl replaced his surprised and tense look. Whatever. You've just gotten faster, idiot.
The other person chuckled and slowly began to retreat their blade. I guess you're right.
Ichigo's body relaxed out of his fighting stance as he swung Zangetsu over his shoulder and turned to face his comrade. Let's take a break. I'm starting to get tired.
Aw! Already? Geez, maybe you are falling behind.

To try to change the mood Kiba suggested. How about we go watch a show, or something?
Hinata looked at him, upset but nodded a yes, anyway. Kiba bit his lip not knowing what to do.
How about that show? Kiba said pointing a weak finger over towards an open stand.
Hinata looked towards where he was pointing and giggled once she saw what he was pointing at.

Naruto gulped but went in, slowly after Kabuto eyeing all the weird things floating and growing around the cave. Then he stopped and tried to focus on the voice he heard coming form deeper in the cave.
Come in. It hissed. Come in.
Naruto swam more then stopped just before some seaweed hanging down from the ceiling. He peered in more and saw Kabuto floating by a small conch bed.
Dont dilly dally boy, one might question your upbringing. A figure dropped out of the conch bed.
He had earrings, tattoos and his eyes resembled snakes. His tail was a snake tail; a long snake tail. Wheres the end of that thing? Naruto questioned himself slowly allowing himself to swim further in.
Then Naruto got pushed fully in and was now right next to the feared sea snake. He tensed and saw Orochimarus tail was wrapped around him.

Kiba just allowed himself to float there, and Naruto wrapped his arms around himself. After a short silence, Kiba burst into laughter. Naruto and Iruka looked at him confused, then Kiba whipped his head up and did a small flip then swim right in front of Naruto.
You made out with the dude. Naruto blushed a bight red, as Kiba did a back flip away from him and continued laughing.
Kiba, thats enough he was just giving CPR, right Naruto? Iruka swam closer to the two.
What?! Kiba pointed at Iruka, What about you?! Up on the surface you kept yelling about it!
Iruka turned slightly pale remembering how unprofessional he acted, then shook his head. I was flustered back there, what with seeing our Prince on a humans lips!

The man looked across the room to the door.
A familiar red head stood in place of his door, a bundle in his arms.
"She's awake now? At this hour?" Byakuya asked, looking at his clock. His eyes widened for a moment, but soon returned to their normal dark sweetness.
"Renji... it's nearly 4:00 am..."
The red head nodded, coddling the bundle and kissing it softly.
"...But she wants to be up. You know we can't stop her."
Byakuya pulled his covers down, making room for the small wrap of cloth.
"I've told you before that if she doesn't get used to it now, then she will never sleep alone."
He tried to make his voice sound stern, but only softend his voice when the baby was layed beside him.
She had been wimpering slightly. But the moment Renji layed her on the bed, she set her eyes on Byakuya and grew quiet.

Naruto slowly picked himself off the cold tile floor. He stooped over and picked up his shirt. "This is gonna be one long night." He sighed as he left the bathroom and headed down the hall.
What was that all about? One minute I'm scared for Sasuke's life the next I'm under him moaning in ecstasy.
I still don't know what made me do it, but all I know is when I stepped past Sasuke's room something told me to stop and listen. Normally I don't listen to that tiny voice, but today since all this weird crap has been going on why not listen, right?
Naruto softly laid his hands on the door and pressed his ear to it.
Inside Sasuke was pacing the room about to make a hole in the floor. Naruto focused on the soft noise coming from the room. He slowly began to hear Sasuke muttering to himself.

On the other far side of the room was the bathtub they used earlier. The door near the bathtub is where the toilet would be found. In between the bathtub and the beds is a nice sitting area. There was a window in front of the sitting area that allowed a view of the ocean. It also had some potted plants on the windowsill.

"Don't think I'm doing this to be nice, fox. If Orochimaru takes the Kyuubi from within you then we cannot have it's power. The result of me saving you just happens to be luck on your side."

The waves pulled him away from the boat and he tumbled down deeper under the water. He shook his head slightly then checked if he was bleeding at all.
Finding no blood, he looked around for Kiba and Naruto. He couldnt see them anywhere. More crashes and booms were heard from above the sea and suddenly things started to fall into the ocean.
Iruka maneuvered around the falling objects and swam up a bit almost to the surface looking to see if he could find Kiba or Naruto. He kept moving, thinking that would be the best way to avoid getting hit.
