A/n: Ok so when was the last time I even thought of glancing at this story of mine? (sweat drops) Haha! It's practically been a year or two or even more than that. (sweat drops some more) Haha! Oh well.. Here it is the continuation of Everybody Grows Up! Enjoy! Oh by the way effective by the end of August 2005 my official pseudonym is Isidora, so if you're wondering who mementomori09 is that's me too. I just changed my penname because it's really uh.. what should I call it? Too… Tasteless and also because my gender cannot particularly identified properly. So let's cut to the chase. This is, by the way, the last chapter. I should say thank you.
Disclaimer: I own the world and everything in it including vast creations of other people! (evil laugh) Of course that will only be in my dreams. I do not own Naruto.For the First Time
Kakashi scanned the training grounds for any sign of his pupils as a smile of contentment formed on his masked face upon seeing none.
He was the first to arrive.
For the first time.
He knew he was going to say much about it and his students were never going to hear the end of it.
He found himself a spot among one of the tree's branches nearby to await his students' arrival and took out the latest issue of Icha Icha Violence.
"This is really good stuff. It's not only entertaining but also very educational." He said to himself as he leafed through another page, savoring its strongly explicit and visual contents.
He finally reached the last page and still his students were nowhere to found. He looked at his watch.
"They're two hours late. What could have happened to those three?"
He stopped for a while to ponder on his students' character in connection
to their punctuality.
"Let's start with Sakura." He told himself as he created an image of her on his head. "It's very unlikely for her to be late or if ever she was late, it wouldn't be this late. She wouldn't miss a training when Sasuke's around." He pressed his chin with his thumb and index finger. And Naruto.. He is always enthusiastic about training so he couldn't have been late or this late either. He thought as he pictured his first meeting with him and hearing him say that he wanted to be the next Hokage of Konoha. And Sasuke… hmmm… well he's serious… too serious for his own good. His mind mentally provided him an image of Sasuke's sharingan.
He sighed at the thought of a possible mutiny among his students pressed against him. He lazily stood up to find things himself.
"First stop. Sakura's house."
"Oh I'm sorry. My Sakura can't come to training today. You see, she has an unaccustomed pain at the moment and is resting upstairs." Sakura's mother said as she met Kakashi by the door. "But I will tell her of your very considerate visit."
Kakashi smiled. "Please tell her to get well."
"I sure will."
Kakashi left as soon as he came and thought to himself. Well that is a reasonable excuse. So that's one down and two more to go. And with these last thoughts he leapt into the air to pay a little visit to Naruto's house.
"I wonder where Naruto's house is? I can be sure it was here the other day?" Kakashi thought dumbfounded as he found a shanty almost about to fall apart from it's structure.
"At the looks of it seems it has been attacked of some sort." He said to himself as he went in the remains to investigate.
"Hey you!" A kid called.
Kakashi lazily lifted his head to see who was calling him.
"Hey kid, do you now what happened to this house and where the owner is?" Kakashi asked.
Konohamaru grinned. "I am not sure of what happened but I heard a monstrous scream after a stampede from the house and later on I found out that Naruto's in the hospital."
"Do you have any information why they brought him to the hospital?"
"From what I heard…" Konohamaru stammered for a bit. "Well you do know that Naruto was just circumcised?"
"Well they say it was hit and of course knowing that it was a fresh wound…" Konohamaru was cut short.
"Alright kid. Thanks." Kakashi said as he sprinted to the hospital not only because he wanted to make sure Naruto's alright but also because he didn't want the kid to give him a very detailed lesson on Circumcision101 and the effects of it being hit after only a day or two's grace period of healing because it would bring back very painful memories for him.
The past should never be looked back at especially when it's all pain. He thought as he entered the room Naruto was residing in.
"Kakashi-sensei…" Naruto said weakly.
"Naruto you look horrible." Kakashi stated the obvious as he looked at his pupil wearing a pink flowery skirt and his usual top together. He was also bruised, cut, and swollen all over.
"Well… who did this to you?" Kakashi asked, knowing the answer already basing on the trademark bruise shaped like a hand on Naruto's face.
"Well?" Kakashi asked again when a medic-nin suddenly appeared.
"Excuse me. It's time to treat Naruto's wounds. Would it be okay if you step outside for a moment. This won't take long."
Kakashi nodded and turned to leave but before he did he saw Naruto's horrified expression.
As Kakashi shut the door to Naruto's recovery room he heard a loud scream of pain accompanied by earth shaking. After a few minutes the medic nin went out with a smile on his face.
"You can see him now."
Kakashi peeped into the room.
"Oi Naruto, are you still alive?"
"Well, I'll be seeing you on Monday. Same place. Same time. Oh and don't die yet, alright." Kakashi said as he shut the door silently.
Kakashi walked through the streets to his last stop. He stood in front of its door and felt like there was no one home and indignantly left. He could take care of himself.
Kakashi sighed. Well this is a fruitful day.
He went back to his spot earlier on that day and took out the newest issue of Icha Icha Paradise. Well at least I have this beauty with me.
At the middle of it all, he heard a stampede well on his way and saw Sasuke running for his life. Kakashi blinked as he saw the throng of girls pass by all after Sasuke. Well, well.. he thought before going back to his reading Isn't Sasuke a lucky guy?
The crows started their little ritual before sun down and little did Kakashi know that it was nearly twilight. He yawned and took the time to realize what his day has become and concluded it in a question.
"How did I end up with such a dysfunctional team? And I went early this morning too…" He said to himself, quite disappointed. He sighed once more.
"It was supposed to be a surprise too. I'm never going early again. "
A/n: I know this chapter is quite disappointing. I'm disappointed myself. But hey it's a wrap-up and it's really been awhile since I last wrote something that is enjoyable! Haha! Oh well. I hope you liked the over all concept. Leave me a review, alright? Oh and I may be continuing my other fics which I have started long ago (sweat drops) and hopefully finish them. Thank you for your patience. Ja!
