Title: Just sell it on eBay
Summary: In which Sakura gets rid of something very valuable. On ebay. By accident. Kinda.
Prompt: When Maya's mom decided to give away Abbey Road. I mean, WHO GIVES AWAY ABBEY ROAD?!
Ino blinked. What? "I'm sorry, could you repeat that?"
"I said, I sold your engagement ring on eBay."
Whatever liquid that had been in Ino's mouth was now sputtering all over Sakura, the table and some innocent by-standers that had the misfortune to be nearby. Sakura winced as the glass she was once holding soon found itself shattered on the ground. She quickly searched for every possible escape route.
Meanwhile, Ino was busy resisting the urge to kill herself, or Sakura, whichever came first. Her first step was to relax and not tear apart the restaurant; Ino didn't want to think about the robust bill she would get. So, she decided that calming down was the next best option. Breathe. Just breathe. In. Out. In. Out. Now that she was nice and calm, Ino smiled sweetly at her panicking friend, opened her mouth and -
"YOU DID WHAT?!" she screeched.
The pinkette sighed. "I told you, I sold your engagement ring on ebay."
"I KNOW WHAT YOU DID, BITCH!"
"Ino, please calm down."
The blond then gaped at her best friend like a fish. "Calm down? CALM DOWN? YOU WANT ME TO CALM DOWN?! YOU SOLD MY ENGAGMENT RING ONLINE! AND YOU WANT ME TO CALM DOWN?!"
"Ino, it's okay, I got Shikamaru to outbid the other-"
"YOU ASKED SHIKAMARU FOR HELP?"
Sakua blinked. "Yes..." she began slowly, "Because he's smart and I figured since I was stupid enough to-"
"I don't want to hear it! I want my engagement ring and I want it now!"
"I heard 'problem'. Why did you say 'problem'? Why is there a problem?"
"Shikamaru wants to use the engagement ring."
Ino was going to flip. No, forget flipping out, she was going to murder Shikamaru. "WHY? That lazy-ass, he can't just buy his own ring?"
"I don't know, he wouldn't tell me!"
The blond growled and crossed her arms, "Where is he?"
Sakura's eyes widened at that, "Now - now, Ino. I can't tell you that."
Her eyes flashed, "And why not?" she asked.
"I'm afraid you might kill him and as much as he deserves to be dead, I can't let you do that. It is a crime, you know."
"Sakura," she snapped, "Give him to me."
"Traitor." he drawled unenthusiastically.
Sakura only nodded glumly as inner-Sakura mentally chided her. 'WEAK! You are WEAK!'
"Shikamaru," Ino began dangerously, "Give it back."
Pineapple head thought it about for a moment before sighing and shrugging her off. "No. I need it."
"Calm down, you troublesome woman!"
"Sorry," she meekly appologized. "Why not?" she asked again.
"To shut my mother up about finding a wife."
"So you steal my engagement ring instead of getting off your ass and finding one yourself?!"
The genius blinked. "Yes."
The mind-jutsu user wiped her face. "Unbelievable." she groaned.
"So," Sakura began, "Who's your 'fiance'?"
And then, with the most annoying and arrogant smirk he could muster upon his face, he looked Sakura directly in the face and said: "You." he answered, ignoring Sakura's pure look of betrayl and 'W-T-F-man-what-did-I-do-to-you' face.
"Uh... Ino, he's lying, I had no - what?"
"And here I thought you were smart." he sighed.
Ino squealed in delight. "Oh, Shika, that's so cute! You're proposing to Sakura!"
And now Sakura was pretty sure her eyes would pop of her head soon if Ino didn't stop it. "What?"
"You really are dense, aren't you?"
"Don't you get it, Sakura? Shikamaru is proposing to you! He wants to marry you and have kids and -"
"What?" she asked hopelessly.
"You." he pointed, "Marry me."
Ino whacked him on his arm for being impolite and rude.
"Please." he rolled his eyes.
"Um, I, yeah?"
