A/N: I'm glad everybody liked the last chapter!!! I felt that if I put in Author's notes on that one that it would bring down the quality considerably. THIS IS THE LAST CHAPTER!!!! I told you that i'd include an Epilogue did I not? This is fairly short but I like it. It also explains absoulutely nothing so if you were looking for answers... well... sucks for you. And I hope that despite it's intolerable shortness you will enjoy this last chapter. Now, and for the final time, I present...

DISCLAIMER: Dude, I don't have enough to buy Sasuke and Naruto plushies and sew their hands together. What in the -BLEEP- makes you think I have enough money to buy Naruto? I didn't own him in the last chapter either.
A little, blonde, pig-tailed girl ran through the large house in her sky blue pajamas. Her strawberry streaked locks shimmered in the light as she sped around a corner, dancing on tiptoe to keep from losing her balance. Finding the room she was looking for, she threw open the door and let out another cry.
A tall blonde haired man shot up in bed. Flicking the switch on a small lap that sat on the bedside table he yawned and grumbled, "Saa, Momo, you don't have to yell I'm right here."
The girl called Momo pouted before replying, "Daddy sleeps like a rock! I had to yell!"
The man chuckled, "That I do. Still lets use our inside voices."
"That's so lame!", She groaned.
"No, what's lame is being pulled out of bed right after you've fallen asleep. Never mind, what did you want sweetie?"
Momo pulled on an endearing face, "Daddy forgot to read me my bedtime story!"
"Alright then!", the man laughed, hoisting the small girl onto his shoulders, "One totally awesome bedtime story coming up!"
She giggled, "Yay!"
In a few minutes they arrived at a brightly painted room. Leaping off her father's shoulders with the grace of a monkey, she slipped into bed. The man pulled up a chair and her turquoise eyes glitered in excitement.
The blonde man sighed, "So which story do you want me to read?"
Momo grinned cheerily, "Make one up! Make one up!"
The man raised an eyebrow in question, "Well then… I'll tell you the story of the Kyuubi no Kitsune."
Her smile stretched from ear to ear as he cleared his throat and began.
"A long time ago there was a powerful fox demon. With a twitch of one of its long nine tails it could crush mountains and cause tsunamis. One day it attacked Konoha and only one person could stop it—"
Momo waved her arms wildly, "Yondaime-Sama!"
He smiled, "That's right! Yondaime-Sama gave his life to seal the Kyuubi. He was a hero. And years later Tsunade-Obaa-Chan released the demon and saved the village. She is a hero as well! Then for no reason what-so-ever the Kyuubi resealed itself and spared the village. In the end, it seems the Kyuubi no Kitsune wasn't so bad after all."
The little girl smiled and her father tucked her in neatly. Just before she slipped into slumber she whispered.
"Daddy's a good storyteller."
He smiled and moved towards the door. He had just closed it when a thin pair of arms slid around his waist.
"I think you're a good storyteller too.", The bubblegum haired woman murmured.
"Good Evening Sakura-koi, did I wake you?"
"Naruto, with all the noise you two were making you've probably woken up the whole neighborhood." She chided.
Naruto grinned apologetically, opening the door a bit he gazed at the sleeping child, "I can't deny her anything… she's such a gift."
Sakura smiled gently, "She'll become spoiled if you keep acting like the doting father you know?"
"I know… but I want her to have the childhood I never had, as soon as she's old enough to become a shinobi her world will change dramatically…" he whispered worriedly.
Sakura nodded, "The life of a shinobi is hard, but that doesn't mean she can drag you out of bed whenever she wants. I have a claim on you too!"
Naruto laughed, "Let's get back to bed."
Just before they left Naruto peeked his head back into Momo's room.
"Good night sweetie, Daddy loves you."
Sakura smiled, "And so does Mommy, Good night."
