Naruto quickly dropped the bag he's holding on the table. Sasuke twitched at the content he could clearly detect through semi-transparent nylon. Two take away boxes and beers, a lot of beers.
“Oh they’re for you.” As if reading his mind, Naruto answered as he sat down on the sofa in the corner of the room and gestured for Sasuke to join him.
“Where’s everyone?” Without budging from his seat, Sasuke lightly massaged the ridge of his nose.
“Well, they’re going out, to celebrate, you know.” Naruto cocked his head. “With Itachi.” He added after a second or two.
“Hm?” Sasuke seemed surprised. “He didn’t call me.”
“Gezz, you were sleeping like a baby.” Naruto joked, putting his hands above his head. “Come on, come over here and eat with me.” Naruto patted loudly on the leather seat next to his.
Sasuke frowned but he eventually stood up and joined his friend after giving his laptop a quick glance. Yes, Itachi was probably right, this is a day to celebrate.
He sunk down to the comfortable couch, he’d hand picked himself when he first got promoted as the training and support manger and was given this office. That was during the time he’s still with Sakura.
Sasuke quickly jolted when he felt a certain warmph on his forhead.
“Wow! Calm down, dude.” That was Naruto’s hand.
“What are you...” The coal haired watch as his friend drewback.
“What do you think? I was just checking if you were sick or not.” Naruto winced at him as if he’d been the strangest person in the world.
“Oh...” Sasuke lied down again.
“You look tired.” Naruto’s hand was back on his hair.
“Mhmm...” Sasuke slowly leaned to the touch. “That’s what 3 consecutive white nights does to you.”
“You wanna eat something?” Naruto’s voices suddenly sounded like a whisper. It reminded Sasuke of his late mother, that was the only explanation he could think of to rationalize himself for going along with this.
