Aaa! First project from my “Easter cosplay marathon” is almost finished.
I’m so hapy and sad at the same time because this was that ‘easier’ one and took me longer than I expected.
So here you are: My first try as Hiroko Katsuki vel Mama Katsuki.
(Wig and glasses are pretty random because that good ones are in my other house)

Happy easter from Mama!

Jigokudani Monkey Park - Japan

Jigokudani, meaning “Hell Valley”, is famous for its population of Japanese Macaques. During the winter, when snow starts to fall, the monkeys head down to the valley, to take advantage of the natural hot springs. There, the steam and boiling water keeps them warm. During the summer, most monkeys return to the surrounding forest areas, although many still remain by the hot springs. 

Japanese Macaques are born into a strict social class system. Groups have an alpha male, which changes whenever the alpha male dies or leaves the group. Female’s can maintain or achieve a higher social status, by grooming their peers.

Day 2: Oct 31st
Prompt: Risqué
Risqué: (related to sexual romance) indecent, not moderate.
Title: Hot Spring.
Rating: M.
This fanfic might not be for everyone.
Summary: After the war was over, they decided to relax and what better way could there be than a hot spring? But there are more problems to deal with. Like finding Kakashi-sensei’s true identity and- wait! Is Sakura naked!? /post war/ sasusaku/ team 7
A/N: This story isn’t supposed to be decent as the prompt says (though I’m not too good at writing (.. eh?) dirty romance but I thought about giving it a try. I hope it turns out as good as I wanted it to be..
AND I have literally 0% idea of what happens in Japanese hot springs so if something feels inappropriate, please tell me, I’ll fix it.

The luke warm water, mixed with medicinal herbs, felt heavenly to their skin. The heat seemed to have healed all the tensed and bruised muscles of their body. The smoke that made their facial skin appear soft and the sensation of the cozy water that brushed their epidermis, was indeed relaxing.

It was, after all, a good idea to relax at a hot spring in the mighty village of Konoha than to be treated by the current hokage at Ichiraku’s. The previous members of the original squad seven were presently, celebrating their victory at the fourth great shinobi war by ‘relaxing’.

“The war sure left me tired.” uttered the hero of the village, Uzumaki Naruto.

“I agree with you at that one, Naruto.” Said the medic, Haruno Sakura.

“Hn.” muttered the sole survivor of the Uchiha, Sasuke.

“The moment when Kaguya arrived, sure left me scared.” Sakura stated.

“But we kicked rabbit-granny’s ass!” grinned Naruto.

“At least stay quiet here and relax.” Sasuke sighed for the hundredth time that day.

First, his two teammates couldn’t decide on where to go and ‘celebrate’ the defeat of the enemy. The argument about ramen or hot bath kept going on forever until Kakashi, the sixth hokage arrived and declined Naruto’s suggestion. After that, they couldn’t decide on whether Sakura should go and take a bath alone (which she preferred) or join the guys, but due to Naruto’s debate on how his ‘precious’ Sakura-chan would be lonely without him, she ended up taking a combined bath with the duo and their teacher. The masked ninja, on the other hand, was yet to be discovered.

Old habits sure die hard. Sasuke thought to himself as he smiled at olden memories.

“Sasuke’s right. Lets forget about the war at least tonight!” Naruto grinned, yet again, which in turn made Sakura smile and give up the idea of discussing the horrible war.

“Yo!” finally, arrived the most awaited 'guest’ for the night, Hatake Kakashi.

His face never once failed to hide his identity. The white mask covered his face while a small, white towel wrapped around his waist. His idly, sluggish eyes were the only thing visible of his face.

Looking at the infamous mask of Kakashi, three eye rolls were directed towards him. Even though he owed them a reason for being late, they avoided any sort of questioning since they had a clear idea of what type of a reply they would get.

“It seems like you guys arrived pretty early.” He stated as he drenched himself in the soothing, warm water.

Naruto looked over his left shoulder, only to be met by a pair of soft, green eyes giving him that evil look. A smirk was directed towards him as he smirked back at the raven haired boy. Sakura took a look at Sasuke as they shared the same expression. Emeralds looking into deep, dark pearls of the avenger. They understood each other’s motives as the trio decided to complete their previously incomplete 'mission’.

A knock was heard at the door and the blonde Uzumaki told the knocker to come in. An employee came in with a tray filled with food and sake. After an exchange of 'thank you’ and 'you’re welcome’, the door got closed again, leaving team 7 and their 'beloved’ sensei alone.

“wanna have ramen? Kakashi-sensei? Asked a hopeful blonde, but the hope was shattered when the former holder of the sharingan nodded his head, no.

’'Ne, Kakashi-sensei, you want to eat dango?” Sakura offered the small plate of dango to the masked hokage with that puppy look in her eyes.

Even though the son of the 'white fang’ understood their intentions completely, still, he couldn’t say no to a girl when she had such a cute look in her eyes.

“If you say so, Sakura.” he smiled behind his mask as he took one of the sticks in his hand.

'still the same old pervert.’ Sasuke muttered under his breath but his rival didn’t fail to listen.

“Its no time to be jealous, Sasuke. Concentrate.” the last part was whispered, making the Uchiha look away, pouting his lips.

Three pairs of eyes were focused solely on Hatake Kakashi as he placed his fingers on his mask in an attempt to remove it while his right hand held the offered dango.

Curiosity, novelty, excitement.

It appeared in those eyes.

Suddenly, the temperature of the luke warm water rose for a second, leaving a thick screen of smoke, blurring the vision. As Naruto chocked, Sasuke grunted and Sakura panicked, Hatake Kakashi did his job. As the cover of clouds settled itself, their sensei was already done with eating leaving three jaws hanging.

“what was it just now?” asked the confused pinkette.

“we failed again, Sakura-chan.” A dramatic look ruled the expressions of the Jinchuriki.

“Loser. Let me try now.” The holder of the rinnegan held the bottle of sake with all the determination in this world. Turning towards his former teacher, he cleared his throat before speaking.

“Kakashi.” he paused. “drink it.” he offered (ehm, ordered) the current hokage.

Kakashi smiled.


A roaring laughter could be heard in the room filled with water vapors and heart break. Sasuke glared at him before taking a deep breath in.

“what was that again, bastard?” said Naruto, holding back them chuckles.

“Humph.” was all he grunted before he removed the cap from the bottle of sake and started gulping until he could no longer accumulate the amount in his belly.

Naruto snatched the bottle from his hands and drank until he appeared like a pregnant woman. Sakura watched the two of them releasing the despair of failing the same mission for past 4 years by drinking and she didn’t want to be the one left behind. She took the bottle away from Naruto and gulped in what was left in that container.

And then they were… wasted.

Kakashi sighed as he tried to flee from the situation.

“OH NO YOU DON’T!” Naruto screamed in his no longer sensible state. He quickly got out of the water, without having a care for his exposed privates, and tried to catch the escaping 'prisoner’.

“Get.. him NARUTO!” Sakura cheered on him as she and Sasuke got out of the pool of water as well. She tried to run but her current drunk state didn’t let her and she soon lost sight of the blonde savior and the silver-haired kage. Sasuke ran until he couldn’t see them anymore due to his clouded eyes. Giving up, he turned around to get back into the water but his eyes caught sight of something-

“Did we lose them?” asked Sakura. A fainted blush covered her cheeks, eyes half-lidded, hair damp and voice husky. And her body? it was adorable. Pale skin, a pair of round breasts, thin waist, flat stomach and shiny, long legs. She was definitely adorable.

But wait, why could he see all that? was he day dreaming? Or was she.. naked?

Right in front of him?

The scene made him blush like an idiot and he tried to look away. How could he let himself lose to the likes of sake?

“what happened, Sasuke-kun?” He almost fell to his feet as he noticed how close she was to him. Centimeters away. The blush on her face was darker than before and the innocence never lost its presence.

“S-Sakura..” he whispered.

“You’re big, Sasuke-kun.”

The compliment made his ears and neck boil in embarrassment as he took a look at himself.

where was his towel, any way?

“Lets go back in the water until we find something to cover ourselves.”

“why? don’t you like it this way?” the seductive tone in her voice was increasing with the increasing affect of sake. And his self-control was decreasing due to the same reason.

He grabbed her by the hand as he lead her to the previous place. The water was splashed all over the place and the smoke was still lightly covering it. He took every step with precaution but a wet sponge on his way decided otherwise. One wrong step, and there he was, flat on his back on the wet surface with a beautiful, naked girl on top of him. Even though he was, by then, aware of his growing feelings for her, he couldn’t let sake spoil the affection and care he was holding.

But the look on her face, flushed, innocent, inviting, made him change his mind. As much as he tried to control his manly desires, the too-comfortable placement of her breasts on his chest, their stomachs pressed against each other and her legs tangled with his, making their insides touch, was a little-too-much for him to handle. And further more, his growing sentiment for Haruno Sakura, made him give in.

His vision was, by then, clouding with passion and his lone hand splayed across her back. Her skin felt wet to his touch and his hand felt warm on her skin. Their blazing, smoldering eyes met, leaving them both helpless to their desires. She lowered her head to meet his gaze while he lifted himself up to claim her lips.

The texture of her lips was gentle but the force with which she smashed them on his rough ones, was surely not that gentle. She ran her tongue over his lips, over where they met, just inside of them, tracing their outline with the tip of her moist tongue. He gasped at the unexpected move and she used the opportunity to increase the passion. Their tongues massaging, lips brushing and souls meeting. She swirled her tongue to explore every single undiscovered place in his mouth as he kept his enraging needs under control.

They broke free after some good minutes, pausing only when their lips barely touched. Panting, breathing each other’s air. The blood in his veins was buzzing by the time she looked at him with that lustful look again. Her eyes, burning in the thirst of his taste. And with that, he knew she was craving for him, as much as he was for her.

“Sakura..” he pleaded for her permission as she smiled at him. The genuine, innocent, pure smile that she only offered him. And how appealing she looked at that moment.

With one swift move, he turned their positions upside down, with him on top and also, the gainer of dominance.

Tilting, he lowered his head until his breath brushed her earlobe. Nuzzling his nose against her jawline, he let go of a hot breath that made her skin shiver. He licked the soft part of her lobe before tugging her closer to him by the waist.

“Sakura.” he whispered her name against her ear in a needy way.

Bringing her hands around his neck and raking nails through his silky, damp hair, she closed her eyes and breathed out the hot air in his ear. He smirked at her reaction as he place a trail of kisses from her throat to the junction of her shoulder. Tasting every part of her soft skin, he gently dipped his tongue into her collarbone and she arched her back, as a result. A content moan escaped her reddened lips, bringing him closer by his hair, she felt herself dissolving in pleasure with every move he made.

He pulled back before claiming her lips again. He licked her lower lip, demanding for an opening and she gladly let him in. The way she smiled in between those kisses and the way she pulled him closer by his hair, he knew she could drive him insane.

The contact of their lips on each other felt heavenly. He flicked her tongue, as the insides of their mouths danced together. Fighting for dominance. Their saliva mixed, making an even delicious liquid for the two of them to erase their hunger. The pleasing contact never failed to make him feel as if fire was pooling in his lower abdomen until they pulled back. The intensity of his needs ignited on a whole new level and by then, he was craving more of her.

He was intoxicated with her and she was mesmerized by him.

The velvety skin of her body felt cold as the previously created friction was lost as he pulled himself up. His knee between her thighs, his hand pinning her wrists on top of her head and his eyes, filled with lust, looking deep into her emeralds. The frenzy love-making continued as he kissed her jawline with burning passion before proceeding downwards, leaving torturous kisses on her throat and frantic ones near her collarbone.

His wet tongue travelled downwards as he left red marks out of possession and lust on every part of her skin that he travelled to. The friction between their bodies was increasing and so was the temperature.

His mouth travelled towards the valley between her breasts as she moaned in his ear, indicating the pleasure she was receiving. His tongue massaged her erected mounds and she shuddered at the sudden contact. Nipping the soft, gentle skin, he sucked a part of it making her feel as if she was on fire. She pulled him closer by his hair, tugging them with too much force in the process.

Even though the pleasure she was being given was immense, she couldn’t let him do all the job. Using her monstrous strength- which she was capable of using even in her current intoxicated state- she pushed him over. Her legs placed on either of his sides, she lifted herself on her elbows over his muscular chest. Eyes half-lidded, desperate, lazily looking into his incoherent ones, while her wet womanhood was brushing his erection.

The look on her face was amazing. Her flushed cheeks, her pouted, reddened, slick slopping lips and clouded eyes. His heart was pounding, trails of fire burned his lower abdomen. He couldn’t wait any longer.

“Damn you sake! He escaped again!”

The voice that reached his ears made him unconsciously awaken his rinnegan. Popping himself on his elbow he was met by a confused Uzumaki Naruto. Sapphire eyes widened at the scene in front of him.

“what in the world happened here?” he barely managed to speak in the shocked state.

Sakura looked over her shoulder and even if she couldn’t figure out what was going on, herself, a crimson colored blush appeared on her cheeks. Her neck was burning in embarrassment as she looked back at her love-making partner only to find him speechless.

“S-Sakura-chan, Sasuke, GET A ROOM.” The blonde jinchuriki said before turning around and closing the door behind him, leaving the two of them alone, shocked, embarrassed and disappointed, all at the same time.

May be tomorrow, no one would remember it. Neither the intruder, nor them. They hoped.
