Walking into the filled parking lot, I looked around at all the trucks and vehicles parked there, each with large speakers playing different songs, all depending on what section they were in.  Looking around, I turned to one of the guys that I had come with.

“Why did I let you talk me into this? Kiba, this is just like every other tailgate party I’ve let you drag me to over the years.” I jabbed playfully as I lightly punched my brown haired friend’s arm. With a fanged smile and a pat on his dog’s head, Kiba just shrugged before walking over to a group of guys. “Alright the party is here!” He called out as they all turned and greeted each other.

Laughing, I walked over as well and greeted the rest of my friends as we had all agreed to meet here. “Okay so what is our game plan now that we are all here? Just mingle or are we running a set of speakers tonight?” I turned my gaze towards my best friend, Sasuke, who always set this stuff up. Shaking his head, he informed us that he hadn’t really felt like running anything this time when they asked him to. Instead it was Sai who had that privilege this time, so we could all just mingle and have fun for once.

A smile formed on my lips and immediately I straightened up and looked around. “Well if that’s the case, I’m going to go get a drink and then check out some of the other areas.”

It wasn’t long before I held a red dixie cup in my hand and was walking around listening to the different songs playing all over the place. As my gaze traveled, it suddenly stopped when my eyes took in the sight of the most beautiful girl I had ever seen.

She had long, brown hair with two black cat ears perched on top of her head, which were twitching with the beat to every song that came on. Her golden eyes were lined with black and a light green eyeshadow which made them shine even more than they already did in the bright lights of all the headlights. She wore a crisp white off-shoulder blouse with lace-like ruffles along the top, a green mini skirt which matched her eyeshadow with a black tail wrapped around her waist swishing to the music, a simple black choker and black heels with straps winding up her calves.

I must have stood there looking like an idiot for a while as I was stunned by her beauty. ‘Alright, there’s no way she is here alone so let’s find her boyfriend before going over there and talking. I don’t want to start a fight.’ After about twenty minutes of only seeing girls walk up to her and talking for a few minutes before walking away, I walked over to her. Her long legs swung from the edge of the tailgate of the truck she had been sitting on as she swayed to the music.

Nodding to myself I made my way to her and smiled as I got close enough to sit down with her. “Hello, my name is Naruto, what’s your-” I just about to ask her name when she jumped up with a bright smile on her face and she turned to me.

I fell under her spell as I heard her voice. “Oh my God, this is my song! I’ve been listening to the radio all night long, sitting here waiting for it to come on and here it is.” She bounced before her eyes gained a beckoning look and she tugged on my hand. “Come here boy, I wanna dance.”

As soon as the words left her mouth I was on my feet and we danced until the song faded out -  that was when I knew I was in love. She leaned up and placed a gentle kiss on my cheek and smiled, allowing me to learn that her name was Nozomi. Meanwhile, I made a mental note of just what song we had danced to, as it was rather catchy. Finding out that the song was called “Rush”, I listened to all the other areas hoping to hear it again.

Honestly I would have paid this particular area’s  DJ every cent I had to play the song again but we ended up mingling instead. Nozomi was fairly popular at these gatherings as she and her group of friends came to every single one of them. We went around talking to everyone and we ended up meeting each other’s friend groups, and I saw sparks fly with the lot of them.

Finding out that the girls had all carpooled together I smiled down at her. “So Nozomi, would you like me to give you a ride home tonight? It seems like your girlfriends might all have different plans for the night.”

A soft giggle came from her and she nodded thanking me. “Though let’s stay just a little longer. I’m not quite ready to leave yet.” Her smile hadn’t faded at all since I met her only a few hours ago and I found myself smiling with her. “Alright then. Just say the word when you are ready and I’ll start the engine.” We continued to dance for a few more hours and I mentally counted out how much money I had on me to see if I could bribe one of the DJs to play her song once more.

Sadly it wasn’t meant to be though, as she finally started to tire and turned towards me. “I’m ready to go if you are, Naruto.” I turned towards her and nodded before saying bye to everyone else and leading her over to my truck. I helped her up into it before making my way around to the driver’s side.

It didn’t take long before she had me turn onto her street and pull up in the driveway of her house. As we both sat there, not really wanting to get out of the truck, I leaned forward and started scanning every station on my radio. If you’d asked her she’d probably tell you I looked like a fool, but I was on a mission. Shortly after I started scanning, I heard it. Her eyes lit up so brightly that I couldn’t help but smile.

“Oh my God, this is my song! We’ve been listening to the radio all night long, I can’t believe it came back on, but here it is.” She spoke almost giddily as she jumped out of the truck and turned towards me, standing in front of the headlights. “Come here boy, I wanna dance.” She called out to me and before I could even reach her, she came to me and took my hand.

Again we danced around until the end of the song. Smiling brightly she reached up and placed yet another kiss on my cheek. “Thank you for a wonderful night, Naruto.” She smiled as I walked her to her door.

Before she walked in, I got her number and asked her out for a proper date later in the week. As I walked back out to my truck I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face . All I could think about was that song and wishing it would come on again.


I sat on my couch and played a few strings on my guitar as I looked over the sheet music in front of me. Over the last week I went out with Nozomi three times. I took her to see a movie a couple days after the tailgate party. The next date was a dinner date at one of the nicer restaurants in town. Yesterday I surprised her with a random trip to the lake for a nice swim.

Smiling as I remembered the look in her eyes each time, I grabbed my phone. Pulling up our text conversation I sent her a quick text asking her to go camping with me this Friday if she was available. I continued practicing the song as I waited for her response.

When my phone went off a few minutes later, I glanced over at the screen. My heart skipped a beat when I saw the text was from Nozomi - and she had agreed to go with me. I couldn't help breaking into a grin as I texted back that I would pick her up Friday after work. And speaking of work, it was time to get ready, but I didn't want to set my guitar down just yet.

By the time Friday came I was more excited than I had been for a while. As soon as I got off work I rushed home and packed everything we would need for our camping trip that night. Once done I texted Nozomi letting her know I was on my way. It took maybe a half hour before I pulled up in her drive, parked and walked to the door.

Once she was ready we packed her bags into the bed of my truck. Again I helped her up into the passenger seat before moving around to the driver’s side and got in. We drove for maybe an hour, up in the nearby mountains, towards my favorite campgrounds. It didn’t take us long to find the perfect spot and start setting up camp.

Before we knew it the sun was setting. I quickly started a fire in the designated spot and pulled out some marshmallows and the rest of the ingredients for s’mores. I also pulled out the small radio that I had brought and turned it on low for background noise. As we sat and roasted our marshmallows, we talked about our week as well as anything else that came to mind.

When I looked up and saw the first stars beginning to break through and shine bright, I stood up and walked back over to my truck and pulled out my guitar. The smile that lit up Nozomi’s face was breathtaking. She turned down the radio just a tad as I sat back down and started strumming a few familiar cords. Just then I could hear the radio start playing the same song and I played in sync with it for a few moments watching her smile grow.

“Oh my God! This is my song! I’ve been listening to the radio all night long, sitting here waiting for it to come on, and here it is!” I loved how she was always so genuinely excited when the song came on. She stood up then and beckoned to me again, “Come here boy, I wanna dance.” Before I could get another line of lyrics out she had turned the radio up and grabbed my hand, pulling me to dance with her again.

Our dancing came to a stop as the song ended, and that was when she leaned up. Expecting a kiss on the cheek as she always gave, I was pleasantly surprised when she actually placed a chaste kiss upon my lips. That was our first kiss, but not nearly our last.

I continued to play my guitar late into the night, playing her song every so often as a treat for her. I dare say that was the best camping trip of my life.


All of that happened more than three years ago now, and I am happy to report that we have been together ever since then. In fact I’m going to see her again tonight.

I grab my jacket as I had decided to take her to the nicest restaurant in town. Looking myself over in the mirror, I deem myself decent enough to be in her presence. Walking over to my night stand I grab a small, square box and gently place it into my right jacket pocket before picking up my phone and texting Nozomi that I was on my way to get her.

By now, the way to her house was as familiar to me as my own. Pulling into her drive I park and walk up to her door. She answers and takes my breath straight from my lungs. She stood there wearing a beautiful green dress, a black slim belt looped around her waist, a black choker, and the same heels from the night we met. Her hair hung in soft waves about her shoulders, she had even gone so far as to tie a green bow onto her right ear and her tail. She was a goddess.

Helping her up into my truck was an honor like no other tonight. The drive to the restaurant was filled with her telling me about how the children at the daycare she works at had somehow managed to get her to play dress up with them all day. I was enraptured in her voice, and trying to imagine her in all the outfits the little ones had gotten her into.

Pulling into the parking lot for the restaurant, I found a spot rather close and parked. Jumping out, I move to her side and open her door before helping her down. We walk in and I inform the hostess of our reservation. She leads us to a small table near the window, and it wasn’t long after we ordered that our food was brought to us. The lighting inside only enforced Nozomi’s goddess looks as it gave her a bronzed look to her flawless skin and her soft makeup made her feel untouchable. It still blew me away that this beauty had agreed to be my girl all those years ago.

After dinner was over we walked back out to my truck and drove to a nearby park. I park close to the lake, and leave the radio playing as we sit on my tailgate, watching the ducks swim peacefully. Looking over at Nozomi, I smiled, as her eyes lit up in that familiar way as she heard her song begin to play. I had called into the radio station moments ago and requested it just for her.

As always, she jumped off my truck and pulled me with her to dance. As the song started to fade I spin her around and then kneel down, pulling the box from my pocket and opening it.

She finished her spin and looks down, her golden eyes widening, and her small hands moving to cover her mouth. I could see the tears forming in her eyes as a bight smile covers her lips, as she took in the white gold ring set with a heart shaped emerald surrounded by small diamonds.

“Will you marry me, Nozomi?” I ask. This was the whole purpose of the night and I will wait patiently for her response. But I didn’t have to wait long.

She nods with small tears falling down her cheeks. “Yes, of course!”

Play It Again
So this is a Christmas present to :iconstargazingkitten:. I collabed With the amazing :iconsuishouyuki: on this. I worte the story and she drew an amazing picture for it, which is linked below. I had wanted to do something special and she helped me figure out the best thing I could do. I was inspired by the song “Play It Again” by Luke Bryan. The song mentioned isn’t “Rush” by Aly&AJ.  I hope you like this StarGazingKitten I used first person since you said you liked that’s style of my writing.

:iconsuishouyuki:’s picture:…
  Okay, so you have been asking about where I come from and who I am. Just remember, you asked. Let me start by telling you that you all have been lied to. My name isn’t Mikkokan Saera. It is in fact, Namikaze Saera. Yes, that is the name of the great fourth Hokage, I know. My brother was a great man, but this isn’t a story about him, it’s mine. So let’s start at the beginning, shall we?

  When I was born I was very weak. I wasn’t expected to stay alive. That was when the miracle happened. Orochimaru-sama had heard about my situation and came into my hospital room after everyone had left for the day. Seeing as how I was a newborn at the time, I obviously don’t truly remember, I just know what he told me he did in order to save my life. That was when Kyana, my demon, was introduced into my life and from that moment on I was stronger and had the will to survive.

  I never knew my parents but I had Minato and Orochimaru-sama around when I needed someone. Most of the time, Minato was away on missions since he had started his career as a ninja, so I would spend most of my time with Orochimaru-sama. Though thinking back I don’t think his student with the glasses enjoyed it very much when I’d come running up crying to Orochimaru-sama after waking up from a blackout and having villagers chase me mercilessly. Oh well.

  When I turned 3 he gave me a choker with a beautiful blue pendant on it. I still wear it to this day. As you can probably guess I was a Gaijin to the rest of the villagers. In case you didn’t know what a gaijin is it means outsider, someone who is different from the rest of them. It didn’t take long before the villagers demanded they either lock me up for good or to kill me out right. By the time I turned 4 I couldn’t even leave my house without either Minato or Orochimaru-sama with me, otherwise I would be attacked on first sight.

  Orochimaru-sama realized I was in great danger and decided to get me out of the village. He helped me fake my death in a sense and hid me out in the forest. He wanted me to stay close while he was still working in the village but whenever he went on missions I was to follow and learn everything I could by watching and practicing on my own, as I wasn’t allowed to be seen. As I got older he would make trips out into the forest to check on my training and to give me private missions that the village had no knowledge of. By the time I turned 11, I was already taking seduction and assassination missions at his command.

  I owed him my life so I never questioned anything he told me to do. It was around this time that there was a huge commotion in the village, I remember a huge explosion. I was so worried about Orochimaru-sama and Minato, but I remained in the forest knowing that it would only make things worse if I went in. Luckily I didn’t have to wait long before Orochimaru-sama came for me in the forest and informed me that it was finally time to leave Konoha behind us. It took me a while before I could even look away from the gates of the village, and sensing my unease, he stopped and with venom coating his tone he informed me that no one of any value had been harmed. Though he regretted that information, I was secretly relieved knowing my brother was safe, and I quickly followed him away from everyone I once held dear.

  It was during our wandering that Orochimaru-sama found five young ninja and marked them. He dubbed them the Sound Five and used them to start locating a new place for him to continue his studies and to find more to follow in his work.  To be honest I was a little jealous back then that he felt he could mark them but never gave me the honor. Now I understand why, he already had a plan set for my life. His introducing Kyana into my life was not only for my benefit. I am his final weapon, a ticking time bomb if you will, against Konoha itself.

  We eventually joined the group known as the Akatsuki. Again I was sidelined and trained on my own, taking what missions he assigned me. As it was, his partner Sasori didn’t like me very much and thought that having me around would only harm their chances at completing missions. Later on when Itachi Uchiha joined the ranks, Orochimaru-sama asked me to get close to the boy. I did as asked, but eventually grew to care for him as much as one can when raised like I was. It was during this time that I was technically sidelined and doing side missions, that I was spotted by a fellow member.

  It wasn’t until years later that I figured out it was Itachi who saw. It was you confronting me that day that finally made all the pieces connect. Orochimaru-sama ended up confronting the boy and got hurt. As much as I cared for Itachi, Orochimaru-sama was the one I owed everything to so I prepared to jump into the fight to protect him. That was when he called out that we were leaving. Without so much as a second look back, I turned and followed him away from the group.

  We then met back up with the Sound Five and he began his work again. I took out anyone that got in his way and managed to keep our location secret for many years. 12 years later, he decided it was time to take our revenge. He sent me on my most important mission, infiltrate and gain as much information about Konoha and report it back to him. I watched the village for weeks, when finally I saw a group leaving on a mission. Following them, I watched their team dynamics and determined how best to use them to my advantage.

  It took some time but once they finished their mission I waited some distance ahead on their path home and used the help of my demon to injure myself severely. As they got closer I pulled in my chakra as much as possible to make it seem like I was as weak as I was claiming. Running into the group leader, I recounted how I had been attacked while walking in the woods, and begged for their help before collapsing unconscious in his arms. When I allowed myself to wake up once more I was in a hospital room in Konoha. My plan had worked.

  It took some time for my injuries to heal and I spoke to the Hokage at the time. I learned about my brother’s death that day but made sure that no one knew my relation to him. I gave them the name Mikkokan to hide my identity as they all believed I was dead. I think the old man was suspicious though, as it had been ironic timing of my disappearance back then. Seeing how it wasn’t long after I had “died” that Orochimaru-sama went awol and disappeared himself. He allowed me to reside in the village as a regular citizen, which was not what I was hoping for. So I had to improvise and take matters into my own hands.

  I turned this into a seduction mission and began seducing the shinobi of the village to gain information. When one ran out of intel I moved onto the next one. I eventually made my way into the bedroom of Hatake Kakashi. He had the most to offer as he was the teacher of Itachi’s little brother Sasuke, in whom Orochimaru-sama was very interested. Everything I learned I reported to Orochimaru-sama and when I had told him of the Chunin exams that were rapidly approaching he gave me my next set of orders: to help him get into the village undetected so that he could meet with the boy.

  I did as was told. I learned everything I could and the morning of the exams, I kissed Kakashi goodbye and wished his team luck. Once he was gone I made my way to the village gate and sat along the top of it, which I did most days so it didn’t seem suspicious to others. Once everyone near me left I sent a signal into the forest letting Orochimaru-sama know it was safe. I’m not sure exactly how he did it but the next time I saw him was he was leaving the forest that the exams were happening in. I stayed in character and played the worried citizen.

  After things had settled I received new intel and again reported it. That was when things went wild. Orochimaru-sama again infiltrated the village and war broke loose. All of his followers began attacking Konoha, me included. I knew what he wanted so I made sure to get Sasuke to a safe place first. When I say safe, I mean, it was where Orochimaru-sama would be able to find him and convince him to follow him. I fought until I knew that Orochimaru-sama had made it safely out of the village before I allowed myself to be captured. I knew with me in captivity they wouldn’t immediately go after him.

  That was when I met Ibiki. I’ll admit he is fun to torment, especially when he is supposed to be torturing you, well me in this case. He did nothing more than tickle me really, thanks to Kyana and my upbringing, nothing he dished out was really torturous enough. I never told a single secret that they wanted, only things that they knew already. I was in there for a good year before something happened and they decided to release me under strict circumstances. That was when I met you, Nozomi. I still felt resentment for the village and didn’t honestly care whether or not you lived or died, but I wanted my freedom so I did as they asked. Years later is when things started to change. I had not heard anything regarding Orochimaru-sama and finally, at the worst time possible, something surfaced. I had started to care for you and the others in my own way, and his resurface threw me.

  That was when I went off on my own with permission to really search where my loyalties lied. Yes I would always owe Orochimaru-sama but I had found things to love again in Konoha. So I decided while on my solo mission that I would protect them. When I returned the village was getting ready for a war, and that is where we are now. Preparing for this war. I will leave this now and hopefully it will be found and used to clear things up, should something happen to me while fighting.

  Now you know who your teacher really was. Use this information however you choose to, but now you know the truth. Now everyone knows the truth. This is the true record of my, Namikaze Saera’s, life.
Saera's Letter to Nozomi
So a lot of people, Nozomi included, have been asking about Saera's origins. Well Saera decided to write a letter to her student allowing her to finally know everything. I am sharing this with all of you against her wishes, so you all may know as well. It's a good thing I know how to hide from my characters. XD Let me know what you all think. Also those of you who are reading Nozomi's story will pick up on similarities and that is because they are in the same universe. So if you see something in this that corresponds to her story it was in fact planned.
