A/N:This is an AU story i came up with a few weeks back. Also my first fanfic *nervousness*
An alarm goes off. It's 5 in the morning, and Naruto groans as he reaches for the alarm to turn it off. After a few more minutes of tossing and turning he finally decides he isn't gonna fall asleep again. So he gets up and starts to prepare for school.
Naruto Uzumaki, son of Minato Namikaze, former mayor of Konoha, who died a day before Naruto was born due to some strange heart disease, and Kushina Uzumaki, lives in the town of Konoha. Its current mayor is Tsunade. Head of the Police Force was Fugaku Uchiha, married to Mikoto Uchiha, best friend of Kushina, who has two sons, Itachi and Sasuke, who was incidentally Naruto's best friend.
After getting dressed he heads downstairs, where his mother has already prepared breakfast for him. "'Morning mom" he says. "You're up early" she replies. He grins as he takes a bite out of the PB&J sandwich in front of him. "You're picking up Ino right?" "Yes mom" he replied and they didn't say another word until he left. As he got into his 79' Dodge Charger, it used to belong to his dad, he started thinking about today, about how boring it was probably going to be.
See Naruto is a junior at Konoha High. The most boring school in the history of the world, run by Iruka Umino. Along with fellow juniors Shino Aburame, Shikamaru Nara, Sasuke Uchiha, Gaara, Kiba Inuzuka, Sakura Haruno, Hinata Hyuuga, Ino Yamanaka, sophomores Neji Hyuuga, Kankuro, Tenten, Karin and senior Temari they tried to make life interesting.
Ino Yamanaka, Naruto's best friend since kindergarten. Sure they argued a lot, but she was fun to be around. Except when she wanted to go shopping, Naruto thought, always dreading the days Ino dragged him along to the mall.
As he pulled up to her house and got out, he knocked on the door, Inoichi Yamanaka opened. "'Morning Mr. Yamanaka, is Ino ready?" he asked. "Not yet Naruto. You can come inside if you like" was his reply. Naruto stepped inside and immediately ran up the stairs. The door to Ino's room was unlocked and so he stepped in. "Geez Naruto, you could give a gall some warning" was Ino's first comment, while she brushed her hair and carefully tied it into a ponytail. "I don't see why, it's not like I'll be seeing anything new" he replied, as Ino's face suddenly turned red. This was true as Naruto once walked in on Ino taking a shower. According to him it was Ino's fault for not locking the door, but you don't hear him saying that out loud. "Whatever. Shouldn't we be heading for school?" she asked. Naruto simply shrugged as he walked out, Ino following him. "Dad I'm off" she said. "Ok honey, have a great day" he managed before the door closed shut behind him.
When they arrived at school everyone was buzzing, and when they saw the announcement for the fall dance, Naruto was already proven wrong. This was going to be a very interesting day
A fall dance. What was she going to do. She didn't even have the right clothes, let alone a possible date. Who was she going to ask? Certainly not Naruto. Sure they were best friends and hey may be cool, but he's still a moron. Shino or Gaara? But Sakura has a crush on Shino, so how could she betray her best friend like that? And Gaara just wasn't her type. It was common knowledge among girls that anyone who dared even flirt with Shikamaru had to deal with Temari, and she definitely didn't want that. And no matter how much they denied it, something was up between Neji and Tenten, which leaves Sasuke and Kankuro. Oh Sasuke, if only he knew how her heart desired her. It was settled then. She would ask Sasuke after third period English, in private. How could he refuse her, Ino Yamanaka? She would have to go shopping after school, but it's a good thing Naruto was there.
But that's as far as her plans went. In her head. Because Sasuke immediately asked Karin to go with him. Karin. Of all the people in this school he asked Karin, completely ignoring her. Well then Kankuro would have to do. Not that he wasn't cute. With his light-brown hair and hazel colored eyes. Ok scratch that, he was downright handsome. But he wasn't Sasuke.
He agreed, and it was settled. At lunch when they all sat at their table the girls started conversing about their dates and what they were going to wear, among other things. It appeared Naruto asked Tenten to go with him. 'Great' Ino thought. Tenten could do a lot better, but could also do even worse. She ignored the sudden tugging in her gut. There was no way she was jealous of Tenten. After another day of school she headed outside, where Naruto was waiting for her.
"What took you?" was the first thing he asked her. "Algebra" she replied with a faint smile. He grinned as he got in the car. She followed suit. "Before we go home you're taking me to the mall" she said as he pulled out into the street. She thought she heard him groaning for a second, but decided it must have been the engine
