Well... whaddya think? It took me three hours to get it just right. Naruko giggles, innocently.
The third hokage meanwhile, wasnt too impressed with the picture in his hand.
I mean, nothing ordinary would have done, not for me. Naruko grinned, confidently.
Do it over! The third hokage said, bluntly. But its not this... unusual picture that bothers me. Why arent you wearing your headband, Naruko?
Well... I didnt want to damage it before tomorrow. Naruko said, a little embarrassed.
In any case, Naruko. This picture will be in your permant record, an essential intelligence resource for the village. So this picture just wont do. The third said.
Aww... but its a cool picture. Naruko said.
Naruko then noticed that the door was creaking open. Suddenly, a young boy darted through, a shurikin in hand, I gotcha now ol man! he shouted, just before he

The village was deafly quiet, almost as if the people there knew what was going on at the bridge, and didn't want to get involved.
The only sound was the sound of footsteps on the pavement, and the knocking on one door after another as young Inari attempted to gather the people to support him and the ninjas on the bridge.
"MR GI'ICHI!!" Inari cried out as he banged on yet another door, even though he had been at this for several minutes, he still looked dedicated and persistent. "Open up please, I need you to come to the bridge with me... if we all stick together, this time we can beat Gato and his whole gang!"
From behind the wooden door of the house, came a nervous male voice, "I'm sorry Inari... but we're not going to fight back anymore." he said. "Your father was a hero, but he's gone now, and if we fight... we'll just be sacrificing ourselves, and we've already lost too much... we can't handle any more regrets."
Inari looked do

The sun was still low in the sky when team seven stopped in the middle of the woods.
Kakashi was using crutches to walk around with, but wasn't slow, and his genin team all wondered what he had in mind to help them train, and get better, fast.
Naruko was hoping for some new, super jutsu, that could probably help her take down Zabuza, and was drooling at the prospect.
Sakura just shook her head, Naruko was just being a pain again. She looked over to Sasuke, and blushed, maybe this was her chance to impress Sasuke.
Sasuke didn't notice, he was too focused, and ready for anything.
"OK... today we begin our new training regime." Kakashi said, "But first... lets discuss chakra."
"We know about chakra." Naruko said. "It gives ninja the ability to use jutsu."
"But do you know how it's made?" Kakashi said.
"Of cour... err... wait... I... yes." she said, not sounding too convi

Naruko peered into the empty hallway, looking in both directions for any sign of their missing sensei.
She sighed as she turned back into the empty classroom.
Why are we the only team whose sensei hasnt showed up yet? She pouted. All the other teams have gone off with their senseis... even Iruka-sensei has gone.
Naruko then smiled as she grabbed a chalk board eraser and moved a chair to the sliding door, placing the eraser in-between the door and frame.
What are you up to Naruko? Sakura said as she walked over to her.
Its what he gets for making us wait. The young blonde replied as she returned to the floor, leaving the eraser stuck in the doorway.
Would you grow up! Sakura said, although inside she was actually thinking it was a funny idea.
Idiot. Theres no way a superior Shinobi could be caught by such a simple trap. Sasuke said.

It had been some time since the land of waves mission, and the village was peaceful and quiet. It was a sunny morning, and Naruko slowly awoke from her deep sleep, stretching out over her bed in her over-sized t-shirt that she slept in.
She got up and out of bed, as she yawned, her long yellow hair reaching down her back to her butt, strands sticking out and sticking up as it was as much of a mess than her bed was. She had obviously had a restless night again.
Ever since the Zabuza and Haku incident, she had felt something was wrong in her mind, still in disbelief at seeing their bodies, and burying them.
She first went to the bathroom, and refreshed herself, tying her hair in to her familiar pigtails, before stepping out and getting her usual breakfast of milk, and an instant-ramen, before she finally got dressed in her familiar black training shorts, short orange skirt, training top and orange jacket.
And once her hitai-i

"Give it up... not one of you will EVER be a ninja." Kakashi said to the stunned trio of genin.
"WHAT DO YOU MEAN GIVE UP?!" Naruko shouted as she angrily squirmed trying to get free from her ropes. "OK, SO NONE OF US GOT YOU STUPID BELLS, BUT WEHY YHE HELL SHOULD WE QUIT OVER THAT?"
Kakashi calmly stood there and simply replied, "Because not one of you has what it takes."
This made Sasuke flinch, did he honestly say that? It was unacceptable, not for him, and in an instant his two female team-mates were stunned to see him charge at their sensei.
"SASUKE!!!" Sakura cried out in shock.
But it was too late, and Sasuke found himself pinned to the ground, his arm held behind his back as Kakashi sat on him.
"What you are is a trio of spoiled brats." Kakashi said.
"Don't step on Sasuke!!" Cried Sakura.
Sasuke looked angry, hating he was dominated so easily, and that his dream, his goal was slipping because of the white haired jounin.
"You three don't unders

The scream echoed through the street as Tsunami watched the two goons before slice in to her son, but the blinked in surprise when instead of pieces of Inari falling to the ground, there were pieces of a log.
"A substitution jutsu?!" Zouri gasped, how did that little boy know the substitution jutsu? What was going on>
It wasn't until they turned back to look at Tsunami that it clicked.
A young girl with blond hair, and long pigtails stood with her back to them with Inari clinging to her was now stood between them and Tsunami, who was now further away
Naruko ushered Inari to his mother.
"N-Naruko?!" Inari blinked, surprised to see her.
"Hey." she smiled cutely. "Your heroine is here." she pulled a 'V' sign and then turned to focus on her opponents. "You did a good job Inari, thanks to your distraction, I was able to untie your mother and get her back here, out of the way."
"Hey... isn't she one of Tazuna's so called bodyguards?!" Zou

Everyone looked to Tazuna, waiting for him to continue, to tell them about what had happened.
He still had a few tears in his eyes as he thought about the time that seemed so long ago.
"Our people- especially Inari - were robbed of the very meaning of courage, because of what happened that day." Tazuna said.
"What happened?" Kakashi asked.
"Let me start at the beginning, let me tell you about the man our entire land called a champion and a hero." Tazuna said as he wiped the tears from his eyes and composed himself again.
Naruko looked at him, 'Champion?!' she thought.
"It was about three years, Inari got himself in to some trouble with a few boys. They were picking on a stray dog he had befriended, and in act of childish thuggery, they threw the dog in to the lake." Tazuna began. "Inari was scared, he couldn't swim, and it terrified him to be unable to save the dog

Naruko blinked from surprise at the fact, before her, her clone was holding another her.
Sasuke and Sakura looked surprised from their hidden places in the bushes. But there surprise was soon replaced with a sweat-drop as Naruko began to attack herself, trying to find which one her, was in fact Kakashi, and she was beating herself black and blue.
"HEY! WAIT A MINUTE." One clone said, "Drop the illusion, if you do, all the clones will disappear leaving on the two."
"Hey thats a good idea... why didn't you think of that sooner you idiot?" Naruko said.
"Because I'm YOU you baka." the clone frowned.
A second later all the clones were dispelled in a single burst of smoke... leaving Naruko standing in the field... alone... and with a bruises as she cried at the fact she really did just beat herself up.
Sakura and Sasuke meanwhile just frowned at her as they sweat-dropped. It was obvious that Kakashi had used a substitution jutsu.

It was a clear morning in Konoha, and Naruko awoke in her over-sized t-shirt, that she used as a nighty, and met the sun that glared through her blind with a long and loud yawn.
Today was the day she was to be assigned to a team, and meet her new sensei who would teach her more advanced techniques, not learnt in the academy, and she was excited.
She quickly downed her breakfast of toast and a glass of cold milk, before taking a shower and getting dressed.
She glanced over at the headband that lay neatly on her set of drawers and she grinned even more.
A short while later, the smile on her face was still there, as she sat at her desk.
Naruko looked around and saw all of her classmates; they all were looking at her surprised she was there since they had heard she had failed the exam. But there she sat, and with a forehead protector tied around her head, and wearing it like a hairband.
At the back, sat one of her few friends Hyuuga Hinata a shy young girl who Naruko had befrien
