"Come on. Just do it once. Ne, Itachi-san? Just once."
Kisame growled in frustration. "Why the hell not? It's just hot sauce."
Itachi glared at him. "Because I said no."
Kisame folded his arms and glared back at his partner, thoughtful. He suddenly had an idea.
"I'll hide the dango."
Itachi laughed humorlessly. "Nice try. I don't eat those anymore."
Kisame stomped his foot. "Dammit, Itachi! Just try it!"
Itachi looked like he was considering it, but then shrugged and grinned. "Nope."
The blue nin growled under his breath and stomped back to their room.
Itachi waited until he was sure his partner was really gone, then reached for the bottle of hot sauce and opened it. Sniffing it once, he drained the entire thing.
Kisame poked his head around the door and watched his partner lick his lips. "What! That doesn't bother you at all?"
Itachi turned to look at his stunned teammate. Holding up the now empty bottle, he grinned and said, "Fire chakra nature. Spicy things don't affect me."
Kisame just stared at him open mouthed. "Not in the slightest?"
Itachi stared at him for a moment before letting out a huge belch.
Kisame started to laugh. "I knew that couldn't be it."
Itachi just shrugged and threw the bottle away.
