Konoha's Bash

By hana01

Romance / Humor

Chapter 1

A beautiful blonde woman sat behind a desk, facing twelve teenagers, whose expressions varied from being utterly bored to thoroughly excited. Tsunade-sama, the fifth Hokage of Konoha cleared her throat, "I am assigning you all to a new mission-." Before she could complete her sentence, a blonde, Spiky-haired boy started to jump up and down, "What is it? What is it? Tell me, tell me, tell meee!!!"

"Shut up, Naruto! You will be given the task to plan a party," Tsunade said, her expression grim, as if she were asking them to plan a funeral. The eyes of all the kunoichi (female ninja) lit up while the guys looked apprehensive. "A party? That's not an important mission – can't we get something more exciting, something with more action!" Naruto Uzumaki said, hyperactive as ever, much to the annoyance of all his peers. But this time, all the other guys nodded in agreement. Tsunade's light-brown eyes flashed, "You always underestimate the importance of missions! The kage's, Feudal Lords and other important people will be attending – so Konoha's pride is at stake if you screw this up!"

"Right, right, I get it," Naruto said, scratching his ear.

"Shizune, brief them on the mission."

Shizune stepped up holding a scroll, "You will be divided into teams of three along with a Jonin sensei and each be designated a task to take care of. Team one, who is in charge of food is Naruto Uzumaki, Choji Akimichi and Shino Aburame along with Kakashi- sensei."

A chorus of angels went off in Choji's head at the mention of food. "Team two is in charge of the décor, Sakura Haruno, Kiba Inuzuka and Neji Hyuuga along with Gai-sensei."

All right! At least it's something I can handle! Thought the inner-Sakura, while outwardly, pink-haired Sakura nodded politely. Kiba and Neji looked as though they would have liked to protest but decided against it. "Team three in charge of drinks, Rock Lee, Tenten and Ino Yamanaka along with Asuma-sensei."

"Osu! We will do our very best!" Lee declared. Tenten smiled but Ino looked quite displeased. "And finally Team four, Sasuke Uchiha, Hinata Hyuuga and Shikamaru Nara along with Kurenai-sensei, will be in charge of entertainment." Hinata was looking scared and nervous while thinking, I'm not in Naruto-kun's team. Shikamaru just looked drowsy and Sasuke was frowning. Naruto pointed at Sasuke and laughed, "Hahahaha! He doesn't know the first thing about entertainment!" Before Sasuke could retaliate, Tsunade cut in, "If anyone screws this up, you will be sent back to the Academy, and not just one of you, all of you!" They all gasped in shock, and everyone glared at Naruto as if to say, if you screw this up, we'll finish you. "And finally, the party is this Friday, that's in five days time so you better get a move on! Oh, and a prize will be awarded to the group that organizes their bit the best!"

Everyone immediately perked up, even the usually stoic Sasuke and Neji started to look interested. "What is the prize? What?" Naruto chirped, thinking of free ramen coupons at Ichiraku Ramen, his favourite food stall. "That is for me to know and for the winners to find out," Tsunade said, as Shizune eschewed them from the Hokage's office.

"Tsunade-sama, do you think they will be okay? Is it wise to trust them with something like this? I mean, they are all fine shinobi but this may be…" Shizune trailed on.

Tsunade smiled and looked out her window at the figures below, going off grudgingly into their different teams, "It will be fun to see what they come up with."

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn.
