Akatsuki Babysitters

Midday

"Rocky road ice cream?"

"Check!"

"Cream soda?"

"Check!"

"The complete third season of Scorned?"

"Check! Yosh, Kisame-san! Now we're ready to watch for the rest of the day!" Sakura exclaimed. Both her and Kisame plopped onto the couch, each with their own tub of ice cream, and got comfortable as the opening credits began. Yes. They were going to binge watch the most angsty, tear-jerking drama they could get their hands on. Each of them had a pint of ice cream in their laps and were shoveling the sugary dessert in their mouths almost immediately.

It was three minutes into the fourth episode when Kisame had gotten up to get his fifth pint of ice cream when he saw a light purple blotch on Sakura's shoulder.

"Eh, what's that? You get hurt again?"

She chuckled sheepishly and rubbed the back of her head.

"I was running and I didn't look where I was going and hit a wall." she said, "Just being clumsy as usual."

He tousled her hair without a second thought.

"You really gotta be more careful, but damn. You must've hit your shoulder hard to get a bruise like that." he mused. Sakura laughed it off like it was nothing and they continued watching the drama. At the end credits of the seventh episode, eleven empty pints of ice cream and six empty bottles of cream soda were on the coffee table, and faces of heavy despair were plastered on Kisame's and Sakura's faces.

"We ate too much ice cream." she muttered.

"And that didn't help the fact that the main character of this series is an absolute dumbass." he added on disappointedly. They both shared a glance before bursting out into a fit of chuckles. With their stomachs full of junk food, they paused the show and went into the kitchen to get even more food. They came back to the couch with a bowl of popcorn and a bag of sour cream and onion potato chips.

"What in HELL is she doing?!" Kisame exclaimed with a mouth full of food as he pointed at the TV angrily, "GIRL, YOU'LL GET KILLED IF YOU WALK IN THAT GODDAMN HOUSE ALONE! HE'S IN THERE! YOU KNOW HE'S IN THERE!"

"TURN AROUND! TURN AROUND, HE'S BEHIND YOU! WHY IS IT IN SLOW MOTION?! WHY?!" Sakura shouted.

Near the end of the season finale, Kakuzu and Itachi walked into the living room. They paused, though, when they saw the overturned coffee table and the furious forms of both Sakura and Kisame.

"YA' DIED LIKE A STUPID BASTARD! HOW FUCKING DARE YOU!" Kisame roared, "YA' MADE US SIT THROUGH ALL THIRTEEN EPISODES JUST SO YOU COULD DIE FROM FALLIN' OFF A CLIFF?! WHO THE FUCK DOES THAT?!"

"NOT ONLY THAT, BUT YOU KISSED YOUR BROTHER INSTEAD OF YOUR BEST FRIEND! I DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE VAMPIRES, YOUR BEST FRIEND LOVED YOU AND YOUR BROTHER WAS A PUREBLOOD WHO LIED TO YOU THIS ENTIRE TIME!" screamed Sakura. Itachi observed the two with a raised eyebrow, and Kakuzu shook his head before turning around and leaving.

He had to remember to ban anyone from watching dramas like these in the house.
