Nanowrimo 2016 : Fire : Chapter 20

Half an hour passed, or so Sonic thought, they were still blasting the distracting monsters with chakras. Their blue bubble like shields have cracks on them and Sonic wondered whether the creature were actually weakened. Did the cracks let the monsters be open to a powerful sever attack if they tried. Sonic did not have a bigger chakra powered weapon so she couldn’t do anything than slightly attacking the monsters and defending their attacks. The others who had bigger chakra weapon were now starting to hit onto any coming monster with much more vicious blow than before.

Sonic spun around to search for the lavender eyed girl. She spotted Hinata crouching behind a wall with a man in white spiky hair with one eye hidden behind some kind of cloth. They were deep in conversation which ended as quickly as Sonic’s eyes laid on them. Hinata came back running to Sonic while the white haired man in green army clothings did some hand signs and his arms emitted blue electricity or lightning like something and pointed at the monsters.

“Chidori!” The white man called out as the blue electric blasted out of his hand and into the cracks on the monster’s shield and instantly cracked it wide open. Then two other person jumped out of his sides and attacked the now exposed monster with their chakra katanas and split the monster’s flesh into parts. The monster screamed while the its counterparts screamed and then in seconds moved their direction towards the white haired man to attack him.

Hinata gripped Sonic’s shoulder and said urgently, “We have to be on attack mode now. As soon as Kakashi blow them apart, we will attack the exposed monsters. Just hit anything.”

Sonic nodded and they parted to areas which aren’t covered by anyone. Sonic watched as the monsters reached for the white haired man which she realized was named Kakashi and waited for his attack. Meanwhile Kakashi continued on his next calculated attack while all the monsters zoomed in on it. Sonic waited breathlessly for her cue to attack.


Meanwhile in Sasuke’s and Naruko’s dream.

Ino came out and babbled about wanting to spend more time with Sasuke and suddenly stopped as she walked to the dream couple.

“You know, for a couple you both don’t really sit like a couple. I read that if you sit not facing each other you’ve got a really big problemo, right? I like to read all these chic mags, they teach me a lot about reading people,” Ino said knowingly at them.

“It’s not like I ever need to convince anyone that I am in a relationship,” Sasuke said with an in denial tone, though he shifted from sitting facing the other side to slowly moving towards Naruko.

Naruko who was sitting facing the opposite side quickly sidled towards Sasuke though still not playing into Ino’s words with huge affection actions. She sighed dramatically before placing a hand on Sasuke’s legs, “Yep, Sugarpie and me don’t need to display our relationship. Our family and friends know it and that’s all important.”

Ino nodded in agreement and then sat at the edge of the sofa. “Well, you guys started any plans on the wedding?”

“Not at all, just enjoying it for as long as I can.” Naruko said as she patted Sasuke’s knee. “My mother said we shouldn’t rush it just because we are engaged, she wanted the time to be just right for me. This engagement was a surprise and I did not even realize that I wanted him to propose until he popped me the question at the lake.”

“Oh, you proposed to her by the lake, how romantic!” Ino squealed. “I wish Sai would do something like that, we have been together for eons now, but even admitting we are a couple took him some months to admit it.”

“Yeah he sat a picnic mat by the lake o the grassed and told me it was for our second anniversary. I thought it was just us celebrating that and he was on his knees after our meal, it was rice and fish - he made it. I cried…” Naruko said dramatically. Meanwhile Sasuke’s smile was growing tighter as the story went more elaborate.

Sasuke had a sudden idea bursting into his mind as he sidled closer towards Naruko and placed his hand around Naruko’s waist. The single lady who had never had a man ever hug her like that, almost jumped from the touch but froze as she saw Ino’s smile widen at her story. By the time Sasuke’s hand was planted firmly on her waist Naruko was unable to continue her story. She blinked owlishly as Sasuke placed his other hand under her hand which was on his knee.

Ino's eyebrows shot up at the gestures and exclaimed excitedly at the couple. “That’s more like it Sas, your mother would be proud to know that you’ve overcome your allergies towards PDA. You guys should do this often in front of a lot of people we all know. Then they’ll stop hunting you and respect your fiancee too. Your parents are going to be proud!”

Sasuke tried his best to school his face which was best described as having a fake smile plastered over an enraged face. He took a deep breath before speaking to Ino, “Well I think it’s best that we get home before my mother arrives. She said she is on her way home.”

Ino jumped to her feet before replying, “Oh yes, she told me she went out for some cake tasting with her friends. Said she was having some cravings and also to help you along the way. It’s never too early to prepare, right?”

“Come on Naru, let’s go home. We can wait at the back while they arrive in less than 5. Thanks Ino for your hospitality,” Sasuke said as he released his hands from Naruto’s and instead gripped her hand and pulled her up. They both walked quickly to the front door and opened it. Ino was happily escorting them home and waved them off. They bounded down her patio and along the pavement while Ino shouted at them, “Make sure to keep the PDAs on.”

Sasuke pulled Naruko along the way until they reached the back of his house which was a small field of neatly trimmed grass with white patio chair and table. He let her hand go as they reached the area out of Ino’s sight. Sasuke promptly walked to the chair and sat down. He sighed audibly and palmed his face, mumbling into his hand incoherently as Naruko watched him blankly from afar.

Naruko sighed as she followed him to the chairs. “Sorry about that, I was just play acting, or whatever saving ourselves back then, I think?”

Sasuke let go of his face and shook his head. “What the hell was that, I can’t even understand. I just wanted to be out of there, everything is weird.”

“Well, since we don’t know what’s happening might as well do that. I have wondered about you, Sasuke Uchiha the heir? I wondered why people wanted you. Your looks? Ino, your friend seems like heads over heels over you though she said she has a boyfriend.”

Naruko stood as she rubbed her own face. “I don’t know what to do either, do we wait for your dream mother?”

“More like nightmare,” Sasuke replied. “We need a plan of action here. Maybe find some kind of meaning behind all this, I am interested in what you were thinking before all this happened. Sit down.”

“Be nice, I am your fiancee here.” Naruko said as she chided Sasuke. She sat down as Sasuke watched her.

Sasuke wasted no time to continue talk, “Ok, so you wanted about me. I… I had an epiphany about finding a wife before all of this happened. Is this a reflection of that?”

“Wait, I wonder if I can wake up from this dream. Let me do something first,” Naruko said as she pinched her hand before screaming in pain. “Darn, that hurts.” She looked up at Sasuke and pinched his thigh this time.

“Damn, it what… it hurts you…” Sasuke gritted his teeth before he rubbed his pinched thigh. Just then the roar of a car’s engine was heard as the vehicle was pulled into somewhere nearby and the engine stopped.

“Sasuke honey, you’re home?”

Sasuke and Naruko’s head automatically spun towards the voice’s direction as a woman in a floral dress and sunglasses walked towards them.

“Baby, you’re home. It’s been a month and Naru dear, give me a hug. It’s been weeks,” the woman said.

Sasuke was in awe at this person who looked like his mother. Still he stood up and looked at Naruko decisively before she pulled him towards the mother for hugs.

“Well, let’s get inside. You didn’t bring your keys again this time is it? I told you last night before you get up to get Itachi’s keys before he left this morning.

Sasuke made another confused face. “Well, you’re here. So all’s ok?”

“If it’s your own apartment, you’re in big trouble young man. If she works out of town, you have to come home whenever you’re locked outside. You have to start being cautious about things like that, if you have a baby one day, you don’t want to lose things like that. My poor grandchildren. But you have to be able to have your own space when you get married, so better now than later.”

Sasuke eyebrows frowned at her words as she dragged them inside. It seemed like even this weird reality-dream mother also wanted him out of the house too.

“Well, you lovebirds go change and we will get lunch outside. I need to attend a function and you’re both my plus twos. Go change.”

The mother pushed Sasuke inside the house and they both stared at each other in confusion. The mother stared at them and frowned, “forgot your way to the bedroom?”

Sasuke quickly pulled Naruko upstairs and entered his ‘room’ before shutting the door behind them.

Naruko who was speechless the whole time sat down on the bed, “Is she like your real mother, she is pretty. So you inherited her looks.”

“Yes, thanks. Almost the same. I think?” Sasuke said as he paced the floor.

“Hey,” he asked Naruko. “I think I want to try one thing.”

“What?” Naruko looked at him in anticipation.

“If this world really wants us to be together, we should give it us being together. But it seemed to not understand that we don’t, I mean are not actually together. Like when we are at Ino’s house playing a couple, everything was going ok. So, I want to try one thing.”

“Is it dangerous?” Naruko asked as she crouched further from Sasuke.

“Nope. Come here.”

“Ok?” Naruko said as she stepped carefully towards Sasuke.

“You know how Ino was going on about PDA and such, let’s maybe try something. I want to ...kiss you,” Sasuke said hesitantly. “If you want to?”

“Umm,” Naruko jerked back. Sasuke quickly took her hands and pulled her towards him as they stood in the middle of the room.


“Umm, I’ve… no…” Naruko was contemplating whether she should tell him that she had never kissed anyone apart from some ridiculous truth or dare childish pecks which lasted not more than a second.

“If you are worried about inexperience, well, I’ve only ever kissed a girl because I did not want her to cry. So in the experience department, none. Well?” Sasuke asked.

“If you think it would change things here, and we should definitely try kissing each other.” Naruko scrunched her face at her own words. “I am never this desperate i tell you.

“Whatever,” Sasuke said as he attacked her lips.

It was only a few seconds touch, brief, no tongues, no saliva at all.

Naruko blinked owlishly again, she was indeed taken aback. Sasuke looked at her and then their surrounding. The room vibrated and the furnitures whitened out into a blinding white blur.

“What the?” Sasuke shrieked.

“Sas!” Narula's unfinished call.

Best video for me this week

I did a lot of watching videos, it's like I have been watching Youtube for the first time in years. Here are some of the best videos for me this week.

5 Seconds of Summer acoustic performance of their own song Voodoo Doll. This video is from 3/4 years ago and one comment said that they looked like they were dancing with their instruments. These lads are talented though I found their voices quite pitchy, well they are teenagers at this time.

Well, they made school instruments sounded cooler than we remembered.


I also watched Sisters Slam Dunk or Unnies Slam Dunk season 1 and two and they were fun. Through these videos I found more about Korean's biggest female acts, and Minzy from 2ne1. The program was fun and very revealing of South Korea's many crews behind the scene team.
