Interesting things happen whenever I converse with annalovesfiction. This fic is fast forwarding to when the next gen are teenagers.
Pairing: Shikadai & Himawari
Sypnosis: Himawari’s learnt a thing or two about asking nicely from her parents.
It was well known through Konoha that the Nara clan were a lazy bunch. Dependable and respected, but undeniably a lazy bunch geniuses.
And Shikadai was not unlike the other born and bred Nara’s. He was more likely to be seen lying eyes closed under a tree rather than helping his friends decode and organise antique scrolls.
Which made this trip completely useless, Boruto concluded in his mind, because Shikadai would refuse to help because he couldn’t be bothered at all.
“Why are we doing this again?” he whined. “Why can’t we just go straight to Shikamaru instead? You know that Shikadai’s going to decline to help straight away.”
“Because this isn’t urgent and Shikamaru is busy,” his ever logical teammate replied. “Besides, stop whining Boruto. You’re almost twenty for goodness sake.”
A chuckle came from his sister beside him and he noticed that she was carrying a small food container.
That’s right, his brain registered. Hima has a big crush on Shikadai.
In a style like their mother’s, Himawari took one look at Shikadai, back when they were children, and attached herself to him like a koala bear. It didn’t look like Shikadai minded at all; he never rebuffed her. Hell, even if he had minded, he was probably too lazy to rebuff her.
if his sister knew that she was probably courting a dead log.
