Karui lifted her hand away from her gun to cross her arms over her chest.
“You do know she’s going to kill you for touching her tea without her permission, right?”
She smirked as he jumped at the sound of her voice. Just how intensely was whatever he was trying? She moved to his side, peering over her shoulder.
“What’re you doin’, Whiskers?”
The look of surprise shifted into excitement almost instantly. His ocean blue eyes sparkled as he glanced between her and the blender.
“Learnin’ how to make iced coffee.”
Now Naruto since they were kids always toed around things whenever he was excited. Karui gave a roll of her eyes, leaning her back against the island in the middle of the space.
“Okay, I’ll bite. Why are you making coffee?”
There it was. That full blast grin he did so well. He always had flashed as kids it when he saw her and her brother Omoi coming in the distance towards Uncle Jiraya’s house for a sleepover. Guy hadn’t changed at all.
“I got a job.”
Karui stood in a stunned silence for several minutes. Had she heard him correctly? Naruto had stopped the device, giving her grim frown. The face look so unnatural on him that she laughed.
“I’m sorry! I thought you had you just told me you found a job. On our second day here no less.”
Naruto narrowed his eyes and pouted before scoffing and continuing his blending. Karui laughed again.
“So how exactly did you manage that, Whiskers?” Naruto’s bad attitude towards her teasing melted away as he shrugged.
“The old Uzumaki luck, I guess?”
