@bluefurcape: Thanks, my dear, for prompting this lovely bit of fun.

Minato owns an ice cream store because he just wants to bring joy to the world. He really should have known better than to get drunk with Kushina and Jiraiya in an attempt to broker a peace treaty after a vicious four month battle over the name. And he really should have known better than to order all of the signs and things while they were all still drunk. It’s his own fault that they ended up with the pink aprons and the frog mascot.
Luckily for Minato, he looks great in pink. His best employee, however, wishes that she never went to her best friend’s dad to beg for a summer job. She never thought that one summer with the Yamanakas visiting family and their flower shop closed would see her still in this pink apron, six summers later.
Warnings for poor customer service and Kakashi being a troll.
The girl behind the counter might just be wearing the fiercest glare Kakashi has ever seen on a service employee.
To be fair, if he were the one wearing an apron with a smiling frog wielding a sword on it that was the same shade as his hair he might just be grumpy too. And he, at least, isn’t in possession of fiercely pink curls. Grey on grey would be much less of an eyesore, he’s sure.
It doesn’t help that the decor is retro pastel-pink diner, either.
“Welcome to Ice Cream Hidden Under The Pad,” she says, “what can I get for you today?”
The amount of peppy cheer she manages to infuse into the question is impressive considering the way her smile looks like it’s about to leap off of her face and start a bar fight.
Kakashi takes his time browsing through the flavours; there are the usual standbys, of course, and some of the names are ridiculous puns, but oh, there. Yes. That will do perfectly.
Kakashi looks the girl straight in the eye, and smiles his best, most innocent smile. “Two scoops of bubblegum, please,” he says, tapping on the glass.
The girl’s left eye twitches. It’s beautiful.
