Author's Note: Hello people! Long time no see! I'm really sorry for such a long delay! Of course now I'm a senior and I had a lot of summer reading and a lot of college visits plus work above everything else. I'm also working on a crossover with my friend. We're doing an adommy/klaine fic, but I need to start working on it. But if it wasn't for my friend Lauren and TechnoAngelprincess I probably wouldn't have decided to start updating my stories. I really am going to push myself to update my stories. I'm going to try an update them every Monday or Tuesday. Depending if I have work Sunday or how much homework I have. Well anyways, here is the next chapter for Safe in Your Arms.

Note: I do Not Own Naruto

Safe in Your Arms

Chapter 5: An Idiot's Best Friend

The sun shone brightly through the closed curtains. The light began to flood the room and yet it was still dark. The room was big and spacious. There was a huge case with books, a desk sat next to it with an awesome flat screen laptop sitting upon the top. The room was rather plain and dark colored blue and the curtain was a dark heavy black. The bed was made of the finest mahogany wood and was dressed with the silkiest black sheets that were all crumpled into a pile in the middle. To the right of the bed was a night stand with a small lamp and clock with blue glowing numbers. The time read that it was 6:30 and as the clock turned to 6:31 it went off.

As the screeching went off nothing moved. A minute went by and the alarm continued to screech out, the clock turned to 6:33 and an arm finally came out from under the covers, reached over and grabbed the clock. The arm brought it over to the pile of covers and the figure that was underneath gave a groan. The bed shifted as the person began to rise. If you could see this figure you would think you died and went to heaven.

The boy was around 15 or 16 sat in the middle of the bed tangled amongst the sheets. The boy was pale white with blue-ish black hair that stuck out in the back like a ravens feathers. His eyes were also a black that could pierce the core of your very soul. This man seemed like he was sculpted by the darkest angels.

He was not wearing any shirt. So you could see the contours of his chest, he was neither the the most bulky nor the scrawniest thing in the world. He was lean but he had these well defined muscles on his biceps. The rest of this boy's body was hidden under the black sheets.

The teen was glaring at the clock as it continued to screech. He gave a light sigh and threw the clock on the other side of the room, with the impact the clock broke into pieces; it was a surprise there wasn't a hole left in the wall.

He gave another sigh and started to run his fingers through his hair. 'Why does today have to be a Monday? Damn it I hate Monday's.' thought the raven haired boy as he put a hand over his face. Suddenly there was a knock on the door.

A deep sounded voice came from the other side, "Sasuke. It is time to get ready for school." said the voice as he could hear feet going back down the stairs.

The boy named Sasuke gave the door one more glare. The teen groaned as the he tried to untangle himself from the blankets. He struggled for about three minutes until he was out of the sheets. The black sheet covered the gray carpeted floor. Sasuke gave one last glare at the silk sheets before he started to get ready for school.

Sasuke made his way towards his closet making his way towards the back to grab one of his many school uniforms he then came out of the closet to walk towards another white door that led him into his private bathroom. Sasuke walked into the bathroom, locking the door and coming out three minutes later. When he emerged from the bathroom he was dressed in a pair of black slacks that were held on with a black belt. The shirt was white and flat from being ironed the night before, the shirt was a button up shirt except for the first two buttons which he kept open with an undershirt worn beneath. His hair was brushed and went into its usual pointed form.

Walking over to his dresser by his closet Sasuke pulled out a pair of black ankle socks before he proceeded to walk back into his closet to slip on his black dress shoes. A knock was then heard at the door. A bubbly voice came from the other side of the door.

"Sasuke, Itachi said to hurry up." the voice said and Sasuke gave another sigh.

"I am almost done. I'll be down in a few."

"Okay don't take too long." said the bubbly voice as they left.

Throwing on his shoes in a rush Sasuke went to his bedroom door and hurried down the stairs and into the kitchen. In the kitchen stood two other men; one man with long blond hair that was tied into a ponytail, and he was wearing a business suit. Then another male that looked a lot like Sasuke but with long black hair that too was tied into a ponytail. The two men looked up as Sasuke entered the room. The blond smirked and made his way over to give Sasuke a hug. Sasuke gave the biggest glare that he could.

"Try it and you're dead." Sasuke mumbled making the blonde male 'eep,' and run to hide behind his boyfriend. Peeking over the stoic mans shoulder he had animated tears pricking his eyes.

"Itachi!" Your brother is so mean unnnn." Said the blond as Itachi gave him a peck on the forehead, giving him a small smirk.

"Don't you worry about him my sweet Dei." He began to whisper as he wrapped his arms around the blonde's waist. He then licked the shell of Deidara's ear and he began to whisper again. "He is just upset because he doesn't have a beautiful blond like you and I get to have fun with you whenever I want." said Itachi as he started to suck on the blonde's neck tenderly.

Deidara closed his eyes as he gave a hearty moan, as the lovers had their little make out fest Sasuke stood there with his eye twitching and as they started taking off their shirts Sasuke was out of there. He grabbed his cell phone and house keys and booked it out of the door. He ran through the walk way and went out the huge metal gate. He stopped to then catch his breath and ran his fingers through his hair.

"Man they're like fuckin' rabbits." Said Sasuke as he thought about all the times he caught Itachi and Deidara in their in their foreplay. 'Thank God it wasn't more.' Sasuke thought as he started to walk towards their bus stop. All of the sudden the 'sexy bitch' song came on and Sasuke stopped in his tracks grabbing his cell phone and attempting to fry it with his heat vision, giving up, and answering it with a sigh.

"Damn it Itachi, hello?" he mumbled and then a voice that wasn't Itachi's rung through his ear.

"Good morning Sasu-chan!" the voice said as Sasuke pulled his phone away from his ear and glared off into the distance

"What the fuck do you want Kiba?" Sasuke grumbled giving a growl.

"Awwwww Sasu-chan! Why do you have to be so mean?" Kiba whined and Sasuke rolled his eyes.

"What do you want dog breathe?" Sasuke asked with malice in his voice.

"I am running late and I was wondering if you can cover for me until I get there?" Kiba asked in a sweet and innocent voice. Groaning Sasuke agreed with a defeated fine.

"Yay! I should be there by first. Cover for me until then. Okay love you man." and with that Sasuke clicked end on the phone and finally made the rest of the way to the bus stop.

**Time Skip—First Period**

First period, how better can it be! Well at least it's a study hall, a nice…a peaceful, quiet.

"SASUKE-KUN!" a pink disturbing blob came and grabbed my arm.

"Oh Sasuke-Kun," she continued.

"I thought I wouldn't see you today…you were thirty seconds late."

STALKER!

Someone shoved the pink blob away Sasuke glared at her and sighed.

"Knock it off billboard brow, Sasuke would never like a slut like you…Isn't that right Sasuke?" another female scrunched up her face glaring at the one who was just shoved. The blond then too was shoved.

"Knock it off Ino-pig." The other screamed.

"No, you knock it off!" Sasuke just stood there as the two girls made their way over to the other side of the classroom. Thank god those two harpies left; but where Kiba is when you need him?

"Alright class sit down and shut up you bunch of maggots." Sasuke slumped in his chair. Oh great, the crazy teacher is back.

"Now you've been in my class since the beginning of the year so get to work and don't bug me! You got that, you know the drill, now go."

"Yes Anko-Sensei," All of the class answered in monotone and she gave everyone a creepy grin.

"Good to hear that. Now where is my dangos?" she said searching through her desk. All was quiet.

"There they are." And with that everyone sighed in relief.

"Alright people do as you wish." Said Anko as everyone started to talk.

Personally I just like to sit there and stare out of the window. There is nothing to bother me.

"Sasuke-Kun will you go out with me?" Sakura called out from across the classroom.

"No." I stated dryly, my eyes never leaving the window. Then I felt something wrap around me. Oh. God. She. Is. Touching. Me… She's hugging me. My eye began twitching like crazy.

"Please Sasu-Kun." She pouted.

"NO!" I growled. She doesn't when to quit.

"Awee come on!"

"I said no." Finally the bell rang. I jumped straight out of my seat and ran out into the hallway.

** Time Skip Second Period**

Thank god I am away from that thing, I thought to myself as I walked to my usual seat in the back of the room.

"This is such a drag." I looked up to see my friend Shikamaru.

"You say that all the time."

"I know, but school is pointless. Hey where is your dog anyways." Shikamaru asked.

"Who the hell knows with him? I am sick of veering for him but he said he would be late for the first and it's the start of second."

"Probably, thought since we had Kakashi he'd just skip second while he was at it."

"Kakashi is always late. English is pointless anyways. We don't even learn in this class."

Shikamaru gave a yawn, "But it's perfect for sleeping in," said Shikamaru as he laid his head down. I gave a sigh and stared out the window. 'Damn where is Kiba?'

As soon as I thought that, my phone started to ring with a sudden vibration in my pocket. Kakashi wasn't around so I thought I just answer my phone. It's probably Kiba telling me he's on his way.

*Kiba's POV in alleyway*

"My name is….," the kid started to say, but then he started to fall. "Oh shit!" I yelled as I caught him. There was blood coming out his mouth and blood on his hand. He was coughing up blood! Here I am in the middle of an alley with no one in sight….. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO!

"I know! Sasuke will know what to do! I yelled as I started to call him. After about four rings he finally picks up. "Stupid Mutt, where are you?" he asked.

"Sasuke it's an emergency I need your help!"

~Sasuke's Point~

"SASUKE IT'S AN EMERGENCY! I NEED YOUR HELP!" I think my eardrum just broke.

"Damn it Kiba! You're so loud!" I growled into the phone. "So troublesome," said Shikamaru. I gave Shikamaru a little nod, "Calm down Kiba and tell me what's wrong," I told Kiba.

"I was on my way to school when this bunch of guys started beating up on a little middle schooler. He was was coughing up blood! Oh man, this isn't good!" Kiba started to babble on about something, but I knew he was really upset.

"Kiba slow down! Where are you?"

"I'm down by 5th street in the alley near the bus stop. Please hurry!" Kiba pleaded.

"I'll be there," I said in my stoic voice. I hung up my phone and started to walk out of the classroom.

"Where are you going?" Shikamaru asked with a yawn. I turned around and said, "Kiba needs my help. Want to come?" He shrugs, "Sure why not." We both walked out of the classroom.

~Somewhere in Town~

Ring Ring Ring

"Kiba! We're almost there."

"Well hurry up! Me and Akamaru are banging our heads off the wall! *Coughing in background* Crap! Sasuke please hurry!"

"Will be there in a minute," Shikamaru and I started to run. We were close to where Kiba was and I was starting to get a little concerned (Uchihas' don't get scared). About a minute later we're out of breath and at the opening of the alleyway. Kiba runs towards me and jumps onto me.

"Thank the heavens you and Shikamaru are here!"

"Quiet, you troublesome dog. I only came to get out of class."

"Never mind that, hurry! This kid is hurt really bad!" Kiba said running into the alleyway. Shikamaru and I ran after him. When we got there Akamaru was laying down with something blonde poking out from his side. Kiba was crouched down in front of him.

"Well come on," he said waving me and Shikamaru to come over. We went over next to Kiba and I think my heart stopped when I seen the most beautiful creature in the world. A young boy no older then thirteen laid there who was battered, bruised and dirty. He had gashes on his angel like face; like a concrete angel that never earned its wings. The boy had blonde hair that was ruffled and dirty from sweat and blood. The raven haired boy felt for him, and he grew even angrier over the fact that someone had done this to him. The blonde boy's chest started to heave as tears started to stream down the blonde boy's face. The blonde felt weak, but he didn't care. All he wanted was to let the pain he was feeling to go away, but if that meant that he had to cry…. then damn was he going to cry. Sasuke didn't know what he was thinking as he carefully picked up the fragile blonde and started walking away.

"H…Hey," the blonde started to say.

"Shhhh…," Sasuke said sternly. "You don't want to strain yourself." (Thank You Lauren!)

The blonde looked at me with hazy blue eyes. They were beautiful. Wait, what am I thinking. I look back down at him again; he seemed to have lost consciousness again. I looked up at Kiba and Shikamaru, "We got to get him to the hospital. He might have a concussion."

Shikamaru rubbed the back of his head, "This is such a drag."

"Akamaru can carry him! The hospital isn't far from here!" Kiba said. Akamaru just barked in agreement. I nodded and put the kid on Akamaru's back. He gave a slight groan, but besides that the angel was quiet. Why am I calling him an angel? Man, my brother must be rubbing off on me. "Come on we better hurry! He's been out for a while!" Kiba said with panic in his voice as we ran out towards the hospital.

**At The Hospital**

Well, we've been sitting here for two hours and Kiba is starting to get on my nerves, "Will you just sit down," I tell Kiba.

He's been pacing since we got here; I hate hospitals. The visitors' chairs aren't comfortable and here I am sitting here waiting for the damn doctor, "No! Not until I know if the kid is ok!" Kiba yelled and started to pace again.

I sighed and started to look at the white walls of the hospital. I couldn't get the blonde's face out of my head, "God, what's my problem?" I said to myself.

'I hope the kid is ok," I thought as I continued to stare into space. Shikamaru's snoring on the lounge coach and with Kiba's footsteps I start to go into my own little world.

**Naruto's Point Of View**

My whole body is aching and my head is pounding like crazy. Ugh, and what the heck is poking me! When the thing poked me in the ribs, I yelped and jumped up a little too fast since I started to fall out of the bed. But right before I fell something grabbed me before I fell to the ground.

"Easy there. You don't want to hurt yourself now."

I looked up to see that a young looking doctor with long honey colored hair was holding me onto the bed.

"Where am I," I whispered out suddenly feeling breathless.

"You're at the hospital. Some of your friends brought you in."

I looked at her with a shocked expression, "My friends?"

"Huh, of course your friends; they're waiting outside. Should I bring them?" I gave her a weak nod. "Okay be right back."

I watched her go out the door of the room. I start to realize my surroundings. The smells of antiseptic, flat beds, and worst of all… those horrible white walls; I give a light groan until I hear the doctor yelling not much longer later.

"How is he? Can we go in? Please tell me," I hear a familiar voice from outside the door.

"Shut up and give me a minute to answer!" yelled was most likely the doctor. I laughed a little when I heard the yelp of the kid who helped me.

After that I heard Kiba (I think that's his name) yelled 'help me' and started to run down the hall. All of a sudden, my door was slammed open. I gave a surprised yelp and fell out of the bed and onto the floor. I heard fast feet coming at me.

"Dude, I'm so sorry! Are you ok?" I look up to see the Brunet from before. I looked at him with a pained filled expression. It shouldn't be a surprise since I fell on my ass.

With sarcasm in my voice I said, "I'm just peachy," as I gritted my teeth.

"I'm sorry," he said as he helped me back onto the bed.

He looked really upset, so I gave him a weak smile, "Don't get so down. I'm fine dog breath."

He gave a sigh of relief, "That's good, I thought for a sec…. hey you little brat! What you call me!"

I laughed, "You heard me."

"Why you little…"

"Whoa easy boy, don't hurt the poor kid (sigh). You're so troublesome."

I look up to see the doctor from earlier, a kid with brown hair placed into a high ponytail, and the most beautiful raven I've ever seen. We looked in each other's eyes and I don't know why, but my stomach started to flutter. Our stares were then interrupted by the doctor.

"I forgot to tell you, but my name is Tsunade and you seem to have some bruised ribs and minor cuts and bruises, but nothing major. You also have a minor concussion, but don't worry you'll be fine. Is there anyone I could contact to let them know you have been admitted into the hospital? Parent or a guardian?" she asked.

'It really isn't a good idea to tell Iruka,' I thought as I looked up at her. "My guardian is out on business and he won't be home for about two weeks," I lied.

"Well, what is his cell phone number?"

All eyes were on me, even the black beauties were to, "He can't be bugged! He is at a very important meeting right now," I gulped as she gave me a funny look.

"Why don't you just tell me the number anyways? I'm sure he would be very worried."

Crap! I need a distraction, "No can do Baa-Chan!" Everything got quiet and there was a killer intent coming from the doctor.

"What did you call me brat?"

I started to shake and when I looked over I seen Kiba cowering behind the two other guys. Even though I was scared as hell I smirked, "Baa-Chan, didn't hear me in your old age?" Next thing I knew, a clip board was thrown straight into my face.

"You damn brat! Never mind! I'll just look it up in your file, what's your name anyways?"

I got up from the brutal attack with my best puppy dog face to make her to stop trying to contact Iruka.

"That won't work on me brat," as she gave me a smug look.

Wow that busted my bubble. I pouted, "Fine, Naruto Uzumaki, but please don't tell my dad. He has enough problems as it is. Please, don't tell him," I pleaded.

"Sorry, I have to let him know. But you should get some rest and your friend can stick around," she said as she strolled right out of the room.

Everything was silent and I couldn't take it anymore. I rubbed the back of my neck in a nervous gesture. My face turns into a small grin and I give a small chuckle, "Haha, thanks for saving me back there… um Kiba right?"

He looks at me and smiles, "No problem Dude! Me and Akamaru were glad to help!" he said as he walked over and sat down right next to me.

I looked at the other two, "You guys can sit down, you know."

They both gave a shrug and sat down in the two seats by the bed. We sat in an awkward silence as I kept fidgeting in my seat. I started to rub the back of my neck once again.

"You do that a lot."

I look up into obsidian eyes; I give a small chuckle, "Yeah, don't know why. Just one of those habits that dies hard. Anyways, my name is Naruto Uzumaki. I just moved here into town," I said giving a big smile. "Thank you guys for helping me out back there!"

Kiba hangs off my arm, "No problem! Well since you know who I am, the pineapple head is Shikamaru Nara and the one with the duck's ass is Sasuke Uchiha. Don't let his looks fool you. He's a cold heart bas-," A book came flying, knocking Kiba right in the face. There stood Sasuke in a throwing position.

"Stupid Mutt."

Kiba jumped up, "You bastard, I'll make you pay!"

He smirked, "Let's just see you try it!"

All of a sudden I see Kiba flying at Sasuke, but only to get thrown across the room into the corner. I smile because all I see is Kiba with a dark rain cloud over his head with his pride smashed all over the floor.

Sasuke smirks, "Who's making who pay now," he looks over towards me. "You have to forgive our friend. He can be very difficult to handle."

I laughed, "It's ok, he's cool like that."

"Really!"

Right in front of me was a beaming Kiba with sparkles in his eyes. I gave him a smile, "Of course! You're awesome!"

He turns around and points a finger at Shikamaru and Sasuke. Oh his name sounds nice. I shake my head out of my thoughts.

He starts laughing, "Ha in your face Uchiha!" Kiba throws his head up into the air and starts to laugh maniacally.

The kid Shikamaru sighs, "Great, I'll never get back to sleep," he says.

A pulse shows up on Sasuke's forehead (So hot!) and he starts to grit his teeth. He glares at me and I start to break into a cold sweat. Uh Oh! I think he's mad!

"Great dobe! We'll never hear the end of it!"

I give a uneasy laugh and about ready to rub the back of my neck until…

"You Teme!" I try to launch myself at him, but I manage to end up on the floor again. I groan as pain shoots up my sides. My eyes are shut tight from the pain I was in.

"Dude, Sasuke you're going to far!" I heard Ki8ba say as he helps me on to the bed. I managed to grit out a thanks, while I heard Shikamaru say along the lines of 'Troublesome Kid'. Through the pain, I give a glare to the cold-hearted Bastard. I can't believe I would call him "Hot". He is so ice cold.

"Sasuke you Bastard! Why do you have to pester him?" Kiba asked sitting beside me again.

"Hn, not my fault he fell off the bed," the Bastard said smirking.

My face grew red with anger, "Teme, who do you…"

I didn't get a chance to finish because my door was slammed open to reveal a very worried mother hen. Iruka was panting (Perverts! You know who you are), and right behind him walking was Doctor Tsunade.

"Naruto, I can't believe you're in the hospital!" Iruka sounded like a worry mess.

I scratch the back of my head and I gave a laugh, "Yeah, the car didn't know where it was going."

~Normal Point of View~

Naruto gave Kiba, Shikamaru and Sasuke a pleading look to keep quiet. They all were looking at each other except for Sasuke with his impassive face in thought, 'Why doesn't he want to tell him about the fight?' Sasuke thought.

Iruka ran over and gave Naruto a hug. Naruto hugged back, but nobody seen the hurt in the blonde's eyes except for Sasuke, 'He doesn't like lying,' Sasuke noted as he watched the blonde.

Naruto pulled back and gave him a radiant smile, "It's alright Iruka! Those guys over there brought me to the hospital!" said Naruto as he pointed over at the characters at the end of the bed.

Iruka let go of Naruto and bowed to them, "Arigato, for helping my idiot son!"

Naruto pouted, "You're so mean," he said in a whiney voice.

Kiba laughed and came over and ruffled Naruto's hair, "This little brat was awesome! He needed someone to save his cute little face!" Kiba said as he pinched Naruto's cheeks.

A pulse on the top of Naruto's forehead started to pulse. His face was glowing red from anger. Kiba, oblivious towards Naruto continued to smile while still pinching his cheeks, "Aw, he's so little!"

Naruto slapped Kiba's hands away, "Listen hear Dog Breath don't call me little. Just because I'm fifteen and I'm not as tall as some doesn't mean you have to make fun of me."

All was silent after Naruto gave his short little speech (haha… I made a funny).

"Nani!" screamed Kiba. "I thought you were like twelve or something!"

Naruto gritted his teeth in anger, while Shikamaru yawned and Sasuke had a look of surprise. But none of them knew that Iruka and Tsunade stepped out into the hall. Naruto was yelling at Kiba, "Stupid Dog! I'm 15 not 12!"

"I'm sorry, I didn't know!"

While the two were bickering Sasuke had so many things running through his head, 'He's 15? Maybe he goes to our school. Is he gay? I need to get to know him. Wonder where he lives? He is so adorable, wait what did I just say?' Sasuke was brought out of his thoughts as both Iruka and Tsunade walked back into the room.

"It looks like you're ok to leave now," Tsunade said as she started to sign his chart.

Naruto broke out into a smile and jumped off the bed, "Yahoo!" But then his legs gave out from underneath him. Everyone gasped while Naruto closed his eyes waiting for the hard floor to hit him. Everything seemed to slow down as warmth wrapped around Naruto's middle.

"Hnn, you have to be more careful."

Naruto opened his eyes to see the mysteries eyes of his savior, 'He is so beautiful, wait what! He's a Teme! I wonder what he looks like with no shirt on.'

At the thought of this Naruto's face started to burn from how red his face was getting. He was red as a tomato. Not just from thinking about Sasuke like that, but he just realized where his arms were wrapped around. Sasuke's arms were wrapped around Naruto's hips. Oh how his arms fit so nicely around them. But it ended too soon for Naruto and the same for Sasuke (even though he didn't want to admit it). He helped Naruto stand up and unwrapped his arms from his waist. Naruto missed the warmth.

"Thanks," Naruto muttered out.

"Hn," said Sasuke as he made his way over to his friends. 'I wish I could of hold him so much longer,'

Tsunade faked coughed and everyone looked over at her, "I just need to give you a check up and you're free to go."

Naruto gave a wide smile, "Arigato Baa-Chan!"

Sasuke couldn't believe how beautiful his smile was, 'I want to make him smile like that,' thought Sasuke.

"Alright you're all done."

Sasuke looked up to see Naruto pull down his shirt over his pants.

'I just missed the perfect view of my Dobe!' yelled Sasuke in his mind.

~Few Minutes Later~

After Naruto was checked out, Iruka, Sasuke, Kiba and Shikamaru were out in the front of the hospital.

"Thanks so much you guys," Naruto said as he bowed.

"No problem! Will see you in school tomorrow, right?" asked Kiba.

Naruto smiled and gave a thumbs up, "Yep!"

"Come on guys," said Sasuke as he started walking to school.

"Bye guys!" yelled Naruto as he waved.

"See ya!"

"Troublesome."

"Hn," said all three.

What all didn't realize yet was that all would become close friends, but challenges laid ahead for them all. Some good and some worst then they could ever imagine.
