"Naruto, don't be a picky eater, just eat a lot so you grow up big and strong. And make sure that you bathe everyday and that you stay warm too. Also don't stay up too late, make sure you get plenty of sleep. Don't forget to make friends as well. You don't need a ton of them okay? Just a few is fine. As long as they are ones you can really trust. And... you mom wasn't very good at this. make sure you study hard and learn your nin jutsu. Always remember, everyone is good at somethings and not so good at others, so even if something doesn't go well, don't get depressed okay?

When you're at the Academy, respect your teachers and the upperclassmen. Oh! now this is important, regarding the three prohibitions of the shinobi, be extra careful about lending and borrowing money. Take your pay, put it in savings account. No alcohol until your of age. To much Sake is bad for you so practice moderation. And another prohibition is women. Remember I am one so I don't know too much about it. Keep in mind that this world is made up of men and women, and so at some point you'll notice girls and that's normal. Just be careful, don't fall for the bad ones. Just go out there and find someone who's like me. That reminds me, speaking of the three prohibitions you should be wary if Jiraiya Sensei ya know.

Naruto, I'm sorry to say there will be plenty of hardships and painful times ahead. Just be true to yourself. Make sure to have dreams and the confidence to make those dreams come true. Oh Naruto, there's so much. There are so many things I wish I had time to pass onto you. So much more I want to tell you. I wish I could stay with you longer. I love you. Minato I'm sorry. I used up your time."

Minato shook his head. "No. It's alright. Naruto, my words to you, well I guess your talkative mom said it all. Eight sign seal."

Tears slid down her cheeks as she watched the couple deliever their first and final words to their newborn son. The scene before her faded and she was met with the same boy in a nursey. Nurses relucantly fed the baby, scowling and whispering how he was 'that child'. It was later that Kagome learned that the boy was the host to the giant demon fox that killed his parents.

She watched as the villagers gave the boy dity looks and led their children away from him. He was alone. An outsider in his own village. An elder man, she assumed was the leader of this village, looked after him.

"I wish I could help him." Just as those words left her mouth, the well suddenly came to life. In an instant, Kagome was down the stairs and out the door, rushing to the well house. She slammed the door open and walked down the steps to the well that was emitting powerful magic, but not the same magic she once knew. It was different somehow.

"Go." the voice of her mother startled her and Kagome spun around to face her.


"Go, Kagome. I know that you miss the Feudal Era and that is where your heart belongs."

Kagome shook her head. "If I leave, I won't be returning to the Feudal Era. And there's a possibility I won't return..."

Her mother sighed as she approached her daughter. "Kagome. We all knew that someday you'll leave and never return. We love you dearly and it would make us happy if you stayed with us, but you'd be miserable, no matter how hard you would try to hide it."

"How did you..."

"I am your mother. I know you better than you know yourself." she winked at her. "Now go on. Another great adventure awaits you."

"Thank you mom." she wrapped her mother in her arms. "Tell Grandpa and Souta i'm sorry and that I love them and I'll miss them."

"I will." she whispered as she watched her daughter swing her legs over the rim and slid forward.

Kagome would have been surprised if she ended up in the Feudal Era, however this was not the case. She was plunged into, yet another, dry well. Wasting no time, she took hold of the vines that grew along the stone edge and made her way to the top. She knew exactly why she had been brought here. She spread out her sense to find the closest village and set off in that direction. She prayed that it was the right one and she'd find him soon enough.
