It was the day all the ninjas of Konaha finally had their graduation they are going solo from now on at least that's what they all thought.
"I can't believe I am saying this but I am going to miss you two so much!"Ino yelled while running up to Shikamaru and Choji to give them a big hug.
"What a drag...I guess I will make sure we stay in touch"Shikamaru said smiling a little.
"YAY! Best friends forever!"Ino said giving Shikamaru another big hug.
They all smiled and gave each other another huge group hug.
"I have to admit it I am going to miss you two knuckle heads."Sakura said with a smile
Sasuke had finally come back to Konaha when well since he met Sakura's sister,Sasha, they fell in love in a insistent,Luckily Sakura was way over Sasuke and wasn't really crushing on anyone yet.
Sakura hugged Naruto and Sasuke.Then it was group hug time and of course Sasuke didn't want to join,Sakura and Naruto had planned this so they were prepared.
Naruto grapped Sasukes legs while Sakura roped them.They dragged Sasuke and stood him up again and they forced his arms around them.They laughed while Sasuke of course was very angry.
"SORRY I'M LATE!"Yelled Kiba as he was running with the oh so huge Akamaru by his side.
Actually Kiba and Akamaru were running too fast.
Kiba ended up hitting Hinata causing her to hit the ground.
They stared at each other red faced but then they both started laughing still kiba on top of her it was awkward but funny.
On the other hand Akamaru ended up on top of Shino,They were right beside Hinata and Kiba.
Akamaru had a nervous look on his face afraid he made Shino mad.
Kiba and Hinata could feel the tension and looked over and they too started having nervous faces.
Then the most unexpected happend Shino smiled and chuckled a bit.
Everyone started screeching in laughter and Akamaru was licking Shinos face.
"My youthful friends I will miss you all!" Rock Lee said looking like he was bout to-...nope he just started breacking down crying.
"Aw Lee don't worry I will make sure we all stay in touch." Tenten said while running up and giving Lee a hug.
"Please my friends lets have a youthful group hug"Lee said while opening his arms nice and wide for Neji to join in.
"No I don't care how much you bage me I am not doing a stupid group hug..."Neji said glaring at his two old team mates.
"Oh come one Neji its not so bad besides this is graduation you'r supposed to be happy!"Tenten said giving Neji a glare back.
"Fine..."Neji finally gave in and hugged Tenten and Lee.Causing Tenten and Lee to get huge smiles while suffocating Neji a with a huge hug.
"Gather around everyone!"Yelled Iruka.
When everyone finally settled Iruka gave all of them a amused smirk witch caused everyone to give him a confused look.
"Well things are a bit different this year. We have found that if we put a couple on a mission they will be more protective and cautios while causing them to have a better chance of surviving."Iruka said smirk still on his face.
Naruto raised his hand.
"Yes Naruto?"Irukas asked.
"But most of us are single."Naruto said with a confused look.
"Well that where I was getting,Naruto...Anyways me and all of your other sensais and teachers have been watching you for a long time and we all have a good idea who would and wouldn't be perfect for each other..."Iruka said giving a huge amused smile.
"Wait so what your saying is your gonna pare us up with someone you THINK would be perfect for us and then hope that we get along and don't kill each other?"Shikamaru said while raising his eyebrow.
"Well...no...fine yes but I don't care how much you you all complain with your pairing you will have to do it anyways."Iruka said while glaring at Shikamaru Oh he is so going to get pay back thought Iruka while giving an evil smile.
"And for the people who are already in a relationship?"Asked Choji.
"Well everyone that is in a relationship will be with that person from now on with every mission they go on.In fact I would like everyone that's is in a relationship to come forward and let me know who and I will have someone contact them and let them know."Iruka said as he looked at his list.
Choji,Sasuke,Shino and Rock lee stepped forward.
"Alright Choji who is your girlfriend?"Iruka asked.
"My girlfriends name is Shelly Nara" Choji said with a big smile.
Shelly was Shikamarus sister she had gone onto a mission and for years after awhile Shikamaru finally told Choji about his sister they met while eating dinner and completely ignored Shikamaru so he left.They becamed a couple quikley.
"Alright Sasuke how about you?"Iruka asked again.
"My girlfriends name is Sasha Haruno..."Said Sasuke in his normal deep tone.
Well you know the story about the two.
"How about you Shino?"Iruka said
"My girlfriends name is Hana Inazuka."Shino said quietly.
Kiba had introduced his sister to Shino,she started flirted with him and next thing you knew they where together.
"Ok,last but not least what about you Lee?"Iruka said releived.
"My girlfriends name is my beautiful youthful Hinabi!"Rock Lee said.
Well I bet you are wondering how THAT happend well Lee forced Neji to introduce him to his little cousin.So when he did Hinabi thought he was funny so they got together since she was only 2 years younger then him.
"..."Iruka was speechless and had a face that was priceless.
After awhile Iruka cleared his throte.
"Well Choji,Sasuke,Shino and Rock lee you may either leave or stay and wait till you'r team's are done with their new lovers"Iruka chuckled.
All of them decided to stay thinking it would hilarious to see who everyone got paired up with.
"Alright as for the rest of you the pairs were chosen by Kurnari she usually is the best match maker anyways so here are the pairings:
Sakura Haruno and Naruto Uzimaki...
Hinata Hyyuga and Kiba Inazuka...
Neji Hyyuga and Tenten...
Shikamaru Nara and Ino Yamanaka...
"WHAT?!" Screeched all the girls unison.Except Hinata she just sat there face turning shades of red.Along with the other girls faces as well where turning shades of red.
Naurto grinned a huge grin.
Kiba smirked a little.
Neji looked nervous.
"What a drag"Said Shikamaru.
"Anyways as I was saying you all will be paired on any mission you go on.But first we know that you are used to the 3 men squids so we are going to let you get used to just being the two of you.You will all stay in some cabins in the forest for two weeks now I want you all to go pack you leave tomorrow at 9 pm. sharp! Iruka said sighing.
Instently all the pairing scooted away from each other a little.
"U-um w-why are we g-going s-so late?"Hinata asked shyly.
"Well its better to go at night because well we just love to torture you..."Iruka said with a smirk.
"How is that torture?"Kiba asked.
"Oh sorry I must have forgotten.Did I mention you will be sharing a bed with you'r partner?"Iruka said with a sly smile.
"NOOOO!!!!!"Screamed everybody all the girls screamed and started running around in circles along with the boys who where still screaming while rolling on the ground freaking out...yes even Shikamaru and Neji.
While in the back Sasuke,Choji,Shino and Rock lee where laughing there butts off.
Everyone became quite and stopped what they where doing.
"Gosh how did you all become ninja in the first place if you are so scared of sharing a bed."Iruka said get irrataded.
"Alright you all are dissmissed"Iruka said sighing and staring at the students...no ninjas.
Sasuke and Shino left.
Rock lee and Choji ran up to there old team mates.
"I am so happy for you! You all shall have such youthful babys!Yelled lee causing Neji and Tenten to run up to him and cup his mouth with their hands.
All the supposed to be couples blushed many shades of red.
Ino ran and grabbed Hinata Tenten and Sakura and ran off.
Naruto grabbed Shikamaru,Neji and Kiba and ran off with them.
The girls ran to Ino's house and sat in a circle in her room.
"So what do you girls think of the person you are paired with?"Ino asked.
"Well...I have a crush on...someone else..."Tenten,Hinata and Sakura said together.
"Oh wow...do you think we should try and give them a chance?"Ino asked.
"Well I think Naruto likes Hinata..."Sakura said with a sad face.
"I think Kiba likes Ino..."Hinata said also looking a bit down.
"I think Shikamaru likes Temari..."Ino said looking down a bit jelouse sounding.
"I truthfully have no clue who Neji likes"Tenten said looking confused.
"Well how are we supposed to give them a chance if they all like different people?"Sakura asked.
Thats when Ino snapped her fingers.
"I GOT IT! Ok so we need to meet up in the forest when Iruka and everyone else leaves,We convince the boys into a game of truth or dare then we all ask do you like so and so...what do you think?"Ino said.
"INO YOUR BRILLIANT!"All the girls yelled and hugged her.
"I know"Ino said laughing.
To the guys...
"So what are we gonna do?"Naruto asked.
"We got to think of a plan to see if they like anybody."Kiba said
"This sucks...maybe we should just ask the girls?"Neji said.
Everyone glared at Neji.
"Or not..."Neji said glaring back
"Why don't we bring it up in a random conversation like,um just be like so do you like so and so anymore?"Shikamaru said looking up at the other guys.
"Guess that would be good"Naruto and Kiba said.
"That was basecly what I was talking about..."Neji said while glaring at the others.
That night Ino called Shikamaru...
Ring Ring Ring...
"Hey Shikamaru,it's Ino...I was wondering if I should bring food or not you know just in case?"
"It's ok I got everything handled with food,you know just in case..."
"Oh...well thank you..."
"Don't sweat it."
"So...what do you think of this whole thing?"
"Can we talk about this later it's getting late and I need to finish packing..."
"Oh right m-me too...um bye sya then..."Ino said while hanging up the the phone before Shikamaru could say anything.Truthfully Ino was pretty nervous and was trying to make it less awkward...didn't work out so well.
Shikamaru sigh,gosh just talking to Ino is messing me up... He thought to himself
Naruto decided to call Sakura feeling a little bad to put Sakura in this situation...
"Hey Sakura...It's Naruto..."
"Oh hey Naruto whats up?"
"Well...if you want I can pack an extra blanket and pillow...so you know we don't have sleep in the same bed..."
"Aw Naruto it's fine we have to do it anyways,besides if we don't we need to get used to it..."
"Oh, ok...right...well guess I better go pack sya tommorow..."
That is when Kiba decided to call Hinata...
"Hey Hinata it's Kiba..."
"O-Oh hey K-Kiba..."
