For the next hour, Naruto listened to Mei's story. Some she gave in meticulous detail, others she gave vague hints. He in turn, gave her some of his, adjusted as they were from the full truth of his foreign nature.

Throughout it all, their hands remained linked and slowly but surely, Mei opened up to him even more.

He learned that she was but a child when she received that scar. It was by her father's hand, one who abused her mother as well as a much younger Mei Terumi. It brought an anger to him that was quickly quenched by the comfort that Mei sent to him through their connection. Her feelings were one of serenity, of forgiveness and acceptance of the past. Naruto in turn, sent her a feeling of pride and admiration, to which she'd blushed and gave a small chuckle to.

He learnt of her rise to strength, to leadership, to being responsible over a mass of people.

By the end of it all, they were once more staring into Kirigakure, understanding one another far more than an hour ago.

"You said that you had more than one question," Mei asked him, smiling and seeming…free from her long held burdens. The gratitude in her eyes made Naruto feel uncomfortable.

He chuckled, before clearing his throat. He felt heat rise to his cheeks. "I do, I…I wanted to know why you weren't on the candidate list that you gave me for potential partners."

The question made Mei jump, her posture tensing as if she couldn't believe what she'd just heard.

"Ex–excuse me?" she got out, stuttering the first word, so unlike her usual calm.

"I wondered why you were left out. From what I see, you do not have a partner and you're far from non-child bearing age," Naruto reiterated.

"I–" Mei couldn't think of a response for a minute before she regained her composure, "I didn't think you would be interested in someone of my age…the age gap is…"

"Too much?" Naruto finished for her.

She nodded.

"And if I disagree?" Naruto asked, removing the blindfold to reveal his blue orbs. Mei gulped as he stared into her, knowing that he meant every single word that he said, and that this wasn't just some playful prank.

"I'm over a decade older than you!" Mei said.

"And yet if I had to pick a Kunoichi from Kiri, I would pick you far and above the rest," Naruto said.

Those words made her ears warm.

It wasn't what she expected coming from him. It wasn't what she expected when she invited him into this room.

Silence fell upon them as Naruto turned to look at Kiri once more, not expecting any particular response from her. He'd simply stated his preferences and that was all.

"You want to have a child with me?" Mei asked, almost disbelieving her own voice.

Naruto turned to her once more and found those Azure orbs staring intently into him. She was serious. If he'd just jump up and say that this was a prank now, then their relationship would be irreparably ruined.

She was vulnerable, as he knew that even from his old world, Mei's dream was to get married to someone and possibly have a child of her own.

"No," He responded and for a moment, Mei looked disheartened. Then he continued. "I want more than just that."

He laced his fingers into hers and squeezed, using ninshu to send the emotions he was feeling her way.

"I want you, I want you as a wife, as one of my wives, eventually," Naruto admitted, "And I want a future with you."

Mei's throat dried up, no words could be said in response.

"Are you alright with that?" Naruto asked, gentle and eager.

Mei hesitated, imagining a future where she was wearing a white dress, standing upon an altar, waiting for her blond haired husband to put a ring on her finger. She imagined herself with a bloated belly, bearing a child for her whisker-marked man and sitting on his lap, smiling into his eyes. He was young, sure, but she could see no man more worthy nor more qualified to be by her side for the rest of her life. He was more than over-qualified, not just for her but for everyone.

She looked into those deep blues once more and her imagination turned for the worse. She imagined him, older and wiser, holding the hand of a now grown up child, standing before a grave that said her name. He'd outlive her, for sure.

It was bittersweet.

And Naruto could feel her emotions.

He gave a relieved smile.

"You needn't worry about that," he said, before projecting an image of his own.

It was an image of the same older Naruto, now surrounded by her fellow wives and his many children, honouring her and cherishing the life she'd lived.

"We will be fine," Naruto said.

Mei was in her early thirties, as much as she hated to admit it, and yet she felt like she was a love-struck teenager whose heart just jumped another cadence into high gear.

There was something about Naruto, a maturity in his eyes, it was as if he'd seen too much in his young life, that called to her.

This was no boy barely past his teens. Far from that.

As fate took over their bodies, they found themselves leaning towards one another and just like that, their lips made contact.

Mei had little to no experience with love, despite her age, and from the times that she'd tried she could never allow herself to be this vulnerable in front of anyone before they got to this stage. If anything she felt like she was probably the oldest virgin alive.

It was hard to believe but it was true. All her time was spent fighting and trying not to die. Her burn scars and her strength scared people, even ninjas, hence why she liked to cover it up so much.

Naruto, however, placed a gentle palm on her cheek before moving up to brush her hair aside to reveal her face in all its glory.

She froze, nervous and awaiting a terrible reaction.

He smiled at her. "You're so beautiful."

She was dazed now. It was like her dreams had become reality before her eyes, gifted from a man who brought the dead back to life.

Despite her experience with politics and all her skill of hiding her face behind a mask, she could not help the stray tear that fell and traversed the contours of her cheeks.

Naruto wiped it away with his thumb.

"Beautiful," he repeated.

This time, their lips met with far more passion than before. She was clutching on to his black jacket, holding it close and making sure that he wouldn't go away.

She needed this. She needed to hear those words. She needed him.

She'd only known him for a few weeks and yet her heart beats for him.

She'd never felt like this in her entire life.

Before this meeting, she hadn't even thought of him as a potential partner, and yet the moment he wanted to, he'd swept her off her feet…and she allowed him to do so.

His tongues parted her lips and she gasped. It was enough for him to invade her mouth and further.

She tried to suppress a moan and failed.

It was at that moment that Naruto threw a seal-attached kunai to the door.

Mei reared back for a moment, surprised.

At the question in her eyes, Naruto answered her. "It's a privacy seal. No one can hear what comes out of this room."

Mei blushed, hard.

She didn't have time to even stammer in indignation at such a suggestion before Naruto took her mouth again, this time using his full expertise.

She moaned, proving her pride wrong.

She couldn't help it.

When they separated again, she was out of breath.

"How far do you want to take this?" Naruto asked breathily, panting as well from the intense bout of affection.

Mei could only look clueless. "As–as far as you want."

Naruto looked at her, dead serious. "I want everything."

Mei felt her knees go weak, yet somehow she remained upright. It was the arm that was wrapped around her waist, she realised, and she didn't even notice when it had gotten there.

She smiled. "Then take everything."

"Are you sure?" he asked.

"Yes."

And with a yellow flash, they were no longer in the room.

-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-

Sakura received a signal from the seal that Naruto gave her informing that he was already at the tent.

At first, she thought that this was an invitation meant only for her to follow him there and…well…

She giggled.

Then she stopped as she saw that Haku took out her signal tag as well, feeling the same thing she did.

She huffed.

Ever since that night, she'd been so riled up.

It was like she was counting the minutes before she could be in his arms again.

It probably wasn't healthy.

She didn't care one bit.

She wanted to turn in and head home but a hand on her shoulder stopped her. She turned to find Kushina.

The beautiful red haired matriarch smiled.

"I think it's about time we had a one to one conversation, don't you think, Sakura-chan?" Kushina asked.

Sakura felt chills run down her spine.

This couldn't be good.

-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-

'I'm going to take everything you have' he said, and yet Mei wondered why he was just…standing there…

…watching her as she lay on his bed…

It was a look of amazement and admiration, of disbelief and wonder.

It was like he couldn't believe his eyes that she was on his bed about to be taken by him.

"Are you just going to keep standing there?" Mei asked, putting up a false bravado of confidence.

She had no idea what she was doing.

"Let me take a minute to admire you," Naruto said.

She blushed and tried to hide her face away once more, making her hair fan over her scars.

Naruto stopped her by placing a finger on her chin and tilting her head back to face him.

"Don't do that," he said, "don't hide yourself. When I said that you were beautiful, I meant all of you, including this."

He traced her scar and the sensation sent shivers down her spine.

His lips met hers again but this time it was with a sensual touch, a different sort of kiss altogether and it made her wonder why he was so good at this.

Was he a playboy only attempting to get laid?

No, even without the Ninshu connection that was still ongoing, she knew that he was not that type of person.

He wasn't a playboy wanting to get laid.

He was a playboy wanting to get laid and keep her by his side forever as a lover.

She would have scoffed at the notion yesterday–the idea of her not being enough for one man–but today?

She didn't care.

As long as a part of him belonged to her, it was enough.

Naruto smiled into her lips and his hands began tracing the contours of her body, starting from her hips before rising up to her waist and then…

She moaned as he gently squeezed her assets.

She was getting warmer, her face redder and she knew that he was not far from the same.

"Last chance to back off, no repercussions, are you sure you want to do this?" he asked.

Mei smiled. He was incredibly caring.

"Yes," she answered.

Just like that, Naruto's finger found the zipper to her dress.

"Say stop if you don't like what I'm doing to you," Naruto said, then he tugged.

Her assets revealed themselves to him…underneath her ninja mesh shirt.

She was embarrassed that she was wearing such a thing during a moment of intimacy but to her credit, it wasn't like she was expecting this outcome.

Yet Naruto still seemed hypnotised, as if barely seeing her generous mounds under a veneer of stitched metal excited him even more.

He continued the motions, zipping all the way down to her navel and dragging the upper portion of her dress down from her shoulders and pooling it at her waist.

"Do you mind if I fuck you in that dress?" Naruto asked.

For some reason those words broke any and all illusions that this wasn't just some elaborate genjutu.

This was happening.

This was really happening.

She was going to have sex for the first time in 31 years on the night after her country was finally liberated.

Instead of answering him, she spread her legs like a cheap whore from a local brothel.

She never felt more alive in her entire life.

Naruto grinned and with expert hands, removed her pants and subsequent ninja mesh legging from her, leaving her in only her panties…and shoes.

Why hadn't he removed her shoes?

Perhaps it was due to the same reason why he didn't remove her dress.

Naruto undressed himself, and she couldn't help but watch mesmerised as each article of clothing was pulled away.

This was definitely no boy. This was a man unlike any she'd ever seen.

When his cock sprang free from the yank of his trousers and undergarments, she gasped.

Naruto junior was magnificent, not that she had anything to compare it to, this was the first time she'd seen a cock in such a setting.

He crawled on top of her, giving her a kiss before dragging himself down.

She moaned and gasped as he placed kisses everywhere.

Little did she know that he was giving her the virgin treatment as he did with Sakura just a few weeks ago.

He enjoyed doing it. He enjoyed watching her squirm.

He definitely enjoyed the fact that Mei had saved herself all this time due to small insecurities…for him.

His mouth eventually found its way to her flower and she smelled like honeydew.

Kunoichi women were ridiculous.

He didn't dive right in, he didn't lap it up like a dog, he simply stared…and each second that passed made Mei Terumi more and more nervous yet more and more excited at the same time.

Her overflowing juices said so.

"Wha–" Mei tried to ask but inhaled sharply as that was the moment Naruto went to work.

Oh she was seeing stars.

Stars. Everywhere.

She'd never felt anything so intense and pleasurable in her entire life. She felt like a fresh graduate from the academy. A maiden unused to such acts even as old as she was.

"Mmmmphh!" She moaned in her hand as it tried to contain her sounds.

Naruto went on for 15 minutes.

She came eight times.

Utter nonsense.

She was making an embarrassment of herself and the kunoichi's of Kiri.

What happened to her resilience? Her stamina?

She would not have it.

Naruto crawled back up to her to plant a kiss on her lips, her own juices tingling her tongue.

She flipped him over, reversing their positions as she laid on top of him.

Partially clothed as she was, Naruto's cock twitched as it accentuated her best features yet still kept them hidden. He wanted to rip them off and let them stay at the same time.

He was patient though, as he waited to see what Mei would do.

And she did not disappoint as she, too, lowered herself, planting kisses as he did, almost mimicking every action he gave her.

But when she got to his cock, she only stared at it for a second, mesmerised, before sticking out her tongue and giving him a lick.

He bucked from the sensation.

Mei's tongue was warm. As in, warm, warm. Impossibly warm.

It was at this moment that he realised the same woman who could spit lava out of her mouth was giving him a blowjob.

He might've reinforced his body but his dick couldn't survive that.

Yet he allowed it, because that was what one did when making love.

Being vulnerable.

Mei's tongue traced upwards once again and he shivered before she gave him a teasing smirk and plunged in, devouring his adjusted 10 inch cock all the way to her throat, taking all the way to the base like it was nothing.

Naruto hissed at the pleasure.

"Kami!" He grunted as Mei began to bob her head.

He knew she was a virgin, he felt it within her, and he also knew that this was the first time she was doing this with someone.

Then how was it possible that it felt so damned good?

Was it?

No, it can't be.

His ninshu technique was still connected…that meant she could sort of feel what he felt, which meant she sort of knew what gave him the most pleasure…

"Oh gods," Naruto groaned as for the first time in his sexual experience, he truly felt he was in the ringer with someone who could go blow for blow with him.

See what he did there? Blow for Blow–

"Argh!" he made an undignified noise as he erupted inside of her.

He could feel her gasping, choking on his cum yet trying her best to take it all in.

…He forgot to inform her of his magic cum…

When Mei recollected herself, she shivered as she felt the pure chakra liquid flowing into her core, stretching her coils like she'd just made a breakthrough in training.

All she could do was give Naruto a ridiculous 'what the heck was that?' expression as she somehow felt like she was on the edge of another climax…from giving him a blowjob.

Naruto gave a sheepish smile.

"Surprise?"

"Surprise? Surprise?!" Mei repeated, "What was that? Why do I feel like I just absorbed a mountain of chakra, and why do I feel like I'm about to cum?!"

"I sort of have…chakra-enhancing and aphrodisiac qualities in my seed," Naruto winced.

She blinked at him.

Then again.

Before a chuckle escaped her.

Then she laughed.

Then she realised.

"Wait…don't tell me this was what happened with that Sakura girl?" She asked.

Naruto went stiff. "H–How did you know?"

Mei rolled her eyes. "Please, as if no one noticed that she arrived as a girl and transformed into a woman overnight."

Then she glanced down at herself. "Nothing's changed with me, other than my chakra growth. Is it because I'm already a woman?"

Naruto blushed. "No, well, I would have to cum inside of you, as in…down there…"

Mei's eyes widened.

"Oh…"

"...yeah…"

"...then why don't we get started?"
