A raven-haired boy made his way past through all the bustling students, unaware of the stares and the giggles of the girls as he walked past. He frowned deeply and slipped his schedule out of his pants pocket, scanning over it quickly.

" An assembly…" Sasuke muttered softly; eyebrows rising up slightly in irritation before he deftly slipped it back into his pocket and made his way towards the theatre.

It was the first day of school again, along with all these boring classmates and boring teachers, along with boring classes and boring girls. Sasuke sighed; it was like this in every other school he attended anyways, why did he care? He was dressed in dark navy pants and a crisp white shirt with a navy blue tie, it was all needed for the uniform requirement.

Finally making his way into where the seats were, he sat down in the middle of the theatre, unaware that he was the first one sitting and that only after he sat down did the rest of the school follow suit. The girls fought to get a seat close to him.

Sasuke wondered if he could take the risk to catch a small doze while the principle droned on and on about how wonderful the school was and how he wanted everyone to cooperate. He had to go through that every year and it was getting rather overused and tiring. Casually lifting a hand to brush back his dark bangs out of his face, Sasuke sat at the seat, waiting for the headmaster to finish off.

" I'm glad to be here this year and to see young familiar faces…" Sasuke listened without really concentrating and rested his head on his arm. " But it's time to introduce to you new students, new relationships and new beginnings…"

This was the part where the headmaster read out every new kid's name and introduced him to the rest of the school, not realizing how socially scarring it is to be shown off in front of over 500 students.

" Hyuga Hinata…"

Sasuke suddenly picked up his head as something caught his eye, a blond tuff of hair? Sasuke peered at the boy standing beside the curtains and the other new students and studied him carefully. Even though he could only see the back of the boy, there was something startlingly familiar about him, something that made the hairs on the back of his neck prickle in newfound excitement.

Sasuke watched in anticipation as the students shifted forward in the line, awaiting to be introduced. It was his turn, Sasuke caught his breath as the boy prepared to turn around to face the auditorium and felt a flood of familiar emotion and love overwhelm him as he did.

" Let me introduce to you, our new student, Uzumaki Naruto."

It was a introduction of new students, new relationships, and most of all new beginnings…



I would hold the hand of the one who could lead me places,
And kiss the lips of the one who could sing so sweet.
And I would fly on the wings of the bird,
I knew, could take me highest.

I would dance with the feet I knew I could always follow,
And take the road that had the straightest line.
You do all of these things for me,
You are, and then some . . . . .

Breathe in, breathe out,
You keep me alive.
You are the fire burning inside.
Breathe in, breathe out,
You keep me alive.
You are the fire, my passion for life.
And I would fly on the wings of the bird,
I knew, could take me highest.

Breathe in, breathe in, breathe out,
You are the fire burning inside.
Breathe in, breathe out
You keep me alive
You are the fire, my passion for life
Breathe in, breath in baby, breathe out, breathe out,
You are the fire burning inside.
You are the fire inside. . . . You give me life
You are my passion for life.
