[A four page comic drawn in dark graphite on lightly textured paper.
Page One: In light pencil lines, Yamato is drawn sitting on his bed in only his sleeveless undershirt and boxer-briefs. Behind him is a closed window, and numerous framed pictures hang on the walls. He is gripping one of his upper thighs and looking at it contemplatively. A caption/title box in the upper left says "Testosterone Tuesdays"
In the three panels following he grips the flesh of his thigh gently with one hand, and with a focused expression, proceeds to give himself an intramuscular shot.
"YO! Tenzo!" Appears in an exclamation balloon behind him, jolting Yamato out of his quiet moment, as Kakashi slides open the window and climbs into the apartment beside him.
Page Two: "Knock!" Yamato demands, "Flare your chakra! This isn't anbu anymore, we're civilized shinobi!" His posture is tight and defensive as Kakashi settles down next to him, but he's still got left hand up with the syringe in it.
Kakashi eyes the syringe neutrally. "Oh, is it shot-day?" He asks in large text, followed by a much fainter "I've been forgetting to do mine."
"Really? Again?" Yamato asks, letting his guard down nearly immediately.
Kakashi shrugs with smile that looks a bit more like a wince. "Eh. I have trouble making time for it."
"Do you...want to be off?" Yamato asks.
"No. I didn't realize I'd walked into an interrogation," Kakashi replies pointedly.
"It's only fair to counter an ambush with an ambush," says Yamato.
Page three: Yamato bends forward, reaching towards the floor, presumably to clean up his supplies. "Well, if you can't remember, then we can do it on the same day," he offers. "I rarely forget."
"What, like a testosterone shot social?" Kakashi asks lightly.
"Sure," Yamato says, picking up and moving his home sharps container. "I'll just invite myself over for T."
"Invite yourself over for T?"
"Well, it's not happening here. You'll just make a game of trying to scare me shitless," Yamato points out.
Page Four: Yamato stands up, still in his undershirt and boxer briefs, stretching, face a little scrunched. He clasps his arms behind his head, one elbow up, the other down.
"What did you come here for anyway?" He asks.
Kakashi smiles again, waving a scroll in one hand. "Mission time."
