Oh yeah. I've decided to name every little drabble I write individually, until I compile them all and think of an overall title.
Title: Some Slight Scheming
Rating: PG-13 (Language, suggestive scenes. Kinda.)
Category: Humor, slight romance
Summary: Advice from Neji - NEVER ask Tenten exactly what it is she's doing.
Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto. It owns me.
Neji couldn't take it anymore.
She had been reading that ridiculous comic book for over two hours, like it was the most enthralling thing she'd ever laid eyes on. She would laugh hysterically on occasion, then quickly glance at him over the pages before going back to making disgusted grimaces or frowning as if puzzled. Once, her cheeks flushed and she looked almost ready to cry, but such an expression quickly disappeared behind either shock or surprise as her eyebrows shot up. Several minutes passed, and she chuckled amusedly at something happening in the black and white volume.
It was all he could do not to calmly stride over and heave that goddamn book through the window. Maybe because he was bored, or because Tenten's fingers were glued over the title of whatever it was she was reading. All he could see was the mustard-yellow covers. She suddenly scrunched up her nose and raised an eyebrow, shoulders shaking as she chortled quietly.
He could have a popped a vein at that. She lowered the comic and stared at him straight in the eye, blinking innocently before resuming her "refined literature". The corner of his mouth twitched upwards.
The hell with it. She wins.
"What are you reading?" Neji asked, trying in vain to keep any curiosity from seeping into his voice.
Tenten grinned widely. She'd waited an entire two hours for that. "The Demon Ororon. I got it on the way home from shopping a month ago, but haven't had time to read it until now."
He seriously doubted that. She hardly did anything but draw, sleep, or watch TV when she was at home.
"There's this girl Chiaki," she continued, "and she finds this guy Ororon kickin' around and being all moody against a street lamp. Turns out he's the king of Hell gone A.W.O.L. or something. Anyways, he's bleeding from a fight with this guy named Matthew he had before he left Hell, and the general population's being a dick about it and completely ignoring him. So Chiaki comes along like the innocent high school dropout she is with bandages, and is like 'Hey, mind if I keep you from dying?' and he's like 'No. Screw off.' Nice guy, I know."
Neji quickly regretted ever saying anything at all. She could have just left it at the title.
"So anyways, Chiaki's this clumsy person so she drops her first-aid stuff in the mud, then runs away to get more. She comes back, and then Ororon sees these freakin' huge wings on her for some reason and is like 'Holy shit. An angel.' and lets her fix him up and bring her back to her house for some reason. How kinky is that? Anyways, Chiaki's friend Lika doesn't like him and thinks he's crazy and stuff, but lets her keep hangin' out with him anyways."
"And then one day, out of the blue, he's like 'Hey. How abouts I grant youse one wish?' and she's like 'Okey dokey! I want you to stay with me forever and ever!' which is really weird, because they've known each other for a total of thirty seconds. So they keep hangin' out for a few days, and then suddenly Ororon just leaves. And in the middle of breakfast, too! Anyways, he stays gone for a while, and then Chiaki gets attacked by these four monsters. One of 'em looks really gay. So they're about to eat her, and then Ororon just appears out of nowhere and blows three of them up. But then Chiaki's like 'Nuuu! Pity them and all that pacifistic stuff!' and he's like 'Okay.' and brings the cute guy with cat ears back."
"After that, Ororon's maid Lucy moves in, along with Shiro, the cute guy, and his little brother Kuro. And they're all strangely happy and familial and stuff. Then we get introduced to Chiaki's aunt and uncle, who are complete asses, and some demons attack Shiro and her. One of them kills Shiro, but Chiaki understandably freaks out and yells a lot and then suddenly these huge wings burst out of her back and she brings him back to life with all these cheesy falling cherry blossoms."
"So some pointless stuff happens, and then Ororon's older brother Orthello comes out of the ground and is so unbelievably gay. Then Chiaki and Ororon get in this tiff about him killing stuff, after he comes back and is completely covered in blood. Then he goes all weird and kisses her, because he's been madly in love with her since like the second page, but she isn't too cool with that and hits him with a rock. And she's fifteen! Sheesh, what a sleazy freak! The guy's like two hundred years old!"
Tenten took a deep breath. "And then she runs away. That's all I've read so far."
Neji was at a complete loss for what to say. He fumbled with the words forming in his mind for a moment, but then got an idea. He smirked.
"Don't worry," he said. Tenten looked confused. "I'm twenty-four."
Her eyes widened to the size of saucers, and her cheeks turned a brilliant red. She quickly hid her face in the pages.
And there you have it.
The Demon Ororon is one of my favourite comics. :D
