Warning!: Crack pairing! I want you with me, because standing in the rain alone is just too cold. By: Hayley
~ Flashback ~
Training had ended for the day and people had departed to various places it sets of two. His friends finding thier life partners, while he remained alone had upset Shikamaru more than he could say. Shockingly the laziest of all the genin had started to pine for a love to call his own. Someone to stand out in the rain in an embrace with until they both caught cold, with no other apparent purpose other than to stay together. He could see doing something like that...but here he was at a park alone bacicly hating every little speck of dust that got to close to him. This is such a drag... " You...play go, correct? " Shikamaru Turned his head to see Shino. " So what? " " Would you...like to play a round of go with me? " The mesh wairing boy layed down to stare at the sky. " I'm kind of busy. " " Oh. " The small reply sounded meek and was barely wispered. The lazy-nin's heart stung at his own spitefulness. As Shino continued to walk the burning in Shikamaru's chest kept growing. " Wait! I didn't say you had to leave! " The bug boy turned to show a raised eyebrow. Shikamau could feel his face heat up. " I-I mean...You can watch coulds with me...if you want to. " Yeah right, like he acutaly come back you dumbass! TT^TT To his surprise Shino walked back and streached his body out next to his. " Let's play the cloud game. " " What? " Shikamaru pointed at one of the clouds. " It's a cat. Can you see it? " Shino smiled making Shikamaru smile as well. He has such a pretty face... " Yes, I can. That one looks like a male tiger-swallowtail. " The bug obsesed boy lifted his arm to point, brushing hands with Shikamaru in the prosess. " See? " Shikamaru nodded without even looking...he was to distracted by the tingling that ran up his arm and spread to the rest of his being. ...like a thousand butterfly kisses...Shino...I think I...have a crush on you.

Shikamaru tossed the pen and started to put on his sandals on a deep urdge to revisit the place he had fallen for Shino. It didn't take long to reach the spot, but when he got there he stoped dead in his tracks. " Um...Sh-Shino. " The boy with glasses startled, jumped, turned around and smiled. " Hello Shika-kun. " Did he just call me Shika-kun...?! Shika kicked a stray rock. " I've been thinking and...I think I like you. " OMG!!!! O.0 I DID NOT JUST SAY THAT OUT LOUD!!!!! " I like you too. " Shikamru gave a dumbfouned look. Had he just heard right? His plan of strategy killed by a fluke slip of the tounge? And the fluke worked? And Shino admitted his feelings so easily! Looking at the sleepless nights of worry...they seemed vaguely crude. " Can I kiss you Shika-kun? " Shikamaru would have been less shocked if Shino had started to combust on sight. " O-okay. " Shino moved foreward , pulling his jacket down and he and Shikamaru started to kiss. Shikamaru ran his fingers through the bug boys hair and licked shyly at his bottom lip. Shino opened his mouth giving Shika entrance. Thier tounges wadged a lustful battle. Soon they had to pull apart to breath. " I...love you so much Shino. " " I love you too Shika-kun. " Shikamaru Smiled and held his love tightly as it started to rain. A strange, happy realization dawned on Shikamaru. He - Shikamaru Nara - had gotten what he was waiting for...
