A/N: Ahem, welcome! If you got here because you have me on author alert, I'm going to edit my profile in a couple of minutes, to give you all some updates on what is going on and all. Anyway, this is a Naruto X A whole lot of girls fic, meaning that Naruto pretty much will have multiple things with multiple women : ) Also it's basically still to soon for Valentine's Day and all but I didn't want to make this a one-shot or something thus needing to post it before Valentine's Day so it MIGHT be complete around Valentine's Day, if not White Day (Aka a month after Valentine's Day...) Well hopefully I'll be done by then with this one, it's not going to be that long : p...I hope. It will contain slight manga spoilers...if not BIG spoilers eventually but...well you're warned ;p Ahem, long enough A/N now a short summary before heading on with the story:
EDIT: Thanks to GGLucas for pointing out some lil facts that were...bad long live the naruto fusion Saskura XD! Anyway what else do you expect when using wordpad XP...
Summary: Naruto, after spending 2.5 years training with Jiraiya is back in Konoha and Valentine's Day is coming up. However he is having some trouble when it comes to asking Sakura out so he needs some guidance. He tells his story of trouble to the old man of his favourite ramenstand, Ichiraku ramen, who comes up with the brilliant plan to force Naruto and his daughter, Ayame to go on a date to make sure Naruto learns how to act on a date, how to treat a woman and how to make sure Sakura notices him as more then a friend. However, Ayame isn't the only one who wants to teach Naruto the ways of dating...
Meh, I kinda suck at summs...but I think that is as best as it gets...Now on with the story!
Chapter 1: The Plan
Ichiraku Ramen, A
ramenstand in Konohagakure.
It's the favourite place where a young cheerful blonde shinobi likes to go and spend nearly every second that he isn't on a mission or training.
After all, his favourite hobby was chowing down as much ramen as he could possibly afford. However, tonight, the usually cheerful ramen gobbling Uzumaki Naruto wasn't as energetic as usual.
Normally, he would have been to his third or fourth bowl by now but tonight, Naruto was just stirring the noodles in his ramen around and around, barely taking any of it.
"What's wrong? You seem like you've lost all energy in that usual energetic body of yours..." Old man Ichiraku asked Naruto as he continued making more Ramen incase more customers came for a meal.
"Hm?" Naruto looked up from his bowl of ramen, "Ah...It's nothing much..."
Ichiraku-san stopped his cooking and laid down all the kitchen equipment at hearing this.
"Naruto, You've been our most loyal customer for many years now. I can tell when something is wrong with you. Just because I'm not some masterchef working for the daimyo doesn't mean I can't tell when my most loyal customer is having something on his mind."
"Ah! But you should be masterchef of the daimyo! I bet he'd love the ramen you make just as much as I do!" Naruto flashed his foxy grin and put some noodles in his mouth.
"Thank you for the compliment, but don't try and change the subject. Spill what's on your mind already." Ichiraku-san replied.
Naruto slurped a bit of the ramen up and put his bowl back down, the wide grin and cheerful mood disappearing from his face once again and showing one of minor depression.
"Well...you know...Valentine's Day is coming up soon and all..." Naruto said as he stared towards his ramen.
"Ah, I see...It's ok you know? Everyone gets rejected every once in a while."
"That's not the case!" Naruto replied fierce.
"Then, why are you so depressed if you haven't been rejected by a girl?" Ichiraku-san asked as he perked an eyebrow.
"Well...it's more like...I wanted to ask Sakura-chan out on a date for Valentine's Day or something...But when I found her to ask her just that, she was talking to a friend of mine, Fuzzy Eyebrows...He likes her too and I heard him ask her out..." Naruto replied.
"So she agreed to him and now can't do to you, huh?"
"No, no...I don't know if she agreed or not, since I just turned around and left...But if she said no, then she'll probably say no to me too because she still likes Fuzzy Eyebrows as a friend and probably wouldn't want to hurt his feelings by going out on a date with me. And if Sakura-chan said yes, then...I really don't know what to do..." Naruto said as he stirred his ramen some more.
"Ah...Well I can't help you with that, but I know someone who could." Ichiraku-san said smiling as he stood up.
"Huh...That's true?" Naruto asked as he looked wide-eyed at the old ramenstand man.
"Hm, hm...As true as the ramen you are having in front of you, my friend." Ichiraku-san said smiling before loudly calling out, "Ayame!"
A few moments later, a young woman's face came out of the back with her brown locks hanging in front of her face, "You called father?"
"Hai, I need you to help me out here."
"But you said that if I was done with piling the boxes in the back then I could..."
"Well there has been a change in plans. Ayame, you're going to take our friend Naruto here out on a date and be sure to teach him everything how to impress the ladies!" Ichiraku-san announced, shining with pride of his little plan to help Naruto out.
"WHAT!" Ayame and Naruto yelled
"How's that going to help me get Sakura-chan!" Naruto added.
"Father, he's what, fifteen? And I'm almost nineteen! What the hell are you thinking?" Ayame added.
"Ayame, if you don't help Naruto out I'll cut your allowance in half and you'll not be allowed to go out for three months..." Ichiraku-san said with a dark glare towards Ayame.
"What the!" Ayame said in a high pitched voice.
"Listen up, Naruto, Ayame could probably help you out with your love problem and teach you how to impress a girl. So that's why you two should go on a date tonight so Ayame can teach you the basics of going on a date and all. Ayame, he's been our most loyal customer for years so I expect you to put your entire being into teaching him what's what. So...now you two go on a date and make the best of it. Naruto I expect you bring Ayame home at midnight and not a minute later or I'll increase the rates of my ramen." Ichiraku-san said as he pushed Ayame out of the stand and next to Naruto.
"Eh! Then, I'll defintely bring her back before midnight!" Naruto said as he jumped up.
"Good, now you two go...Naruto since you didn't really ate that bowl of ramen, consider it on the house. Now go." Ichiraku-san said smiling widely.
Ayame let out a sigh as her father headed back to his cooking, "Alright Naruto-kun, guess we don't have a choice then huh? We first need to head back to my house so I can get out of my working uniform and into something nicer. Well then, let us be on our way."
She grabbed onto Naruto's hand, who slightly blushed before he was pulled after her towards the Ichiraku residence. Minutes later Naruto was impatiently walking back and forth in front of the door to Ayame's room.
"Come on! What's taking you so long anyway!" Naruto yelled.
"I think that will be lesson one for you, Naruto-kun." Ayame's voice came out of her room.
"If you pick up a girl at her house before she's ready, most of the time you'll have to wait a long time. So learn to be patient, they're getting pretty for you, you know."
"But...this isn't a real date." Naruto crossed his arms and leaned back against the wall, staring annoyed towards the other wall.
"It is going to be somewhat LIKE a real date...Besides just be thankful I don't need a shower right now...I like to bathe for a really long time."
Just then the door opened, "Naruto-kun, I need your help here for a few seconds."
Naruto walked into Ayame's room and there he saw her with her back towards him, halfly wearing a beautiful blue-white kimono.
"Er...What can I help you with?" Naruto asked hesitantly as he wondered with his eyes over her exposed back and arms, which were only covered up partly by her hair and something else, Naruto noted.
"Well you see, I kind of forgot that I have a lot of trouble tying a knot on a corset since I normally only use the zipper kind when I go out, so if you could please..."
"Eh...ehm...sure thing." Naruto flashed a grin and rubbed the back of his head as he walked towards her.
"But if you're going to wear a kimono why would you need that underneath it?" Naruto asked as he walked towards her.
"Because even though just the two of us are going on a date, we might also go to a club or something. Then a kimono isn't really that cool, now is it?" Ayame replied and gave Naruto a wink.
"Ah, I guess you're right." Naruto said grinning sheepishly and grabbed onto the two ends that should be tied together.
As Naruto breathed in order to relax somewhat, the smell of a lot of different ramen flavours and an even sweeter smell entered his nostrils. Being intoxicated by the smell, he forgot for a moment what he was actually supposed to do.
"Naruto-kun?" Ayame's voice shook him out of his moment as he quickly shook his head.
"You. You were thinking something perverted, weren't you?" Ayame asked him grinning.
Naruto shook his head again wide-eyed, "It was nothing like that!" Naruto firmly said and just as firmly pulled on the strings.
"Ah! Not so hard Naruto-kun!" Ayame moaned loudly. Just then the door of Ayame's room was kicked down, the shock causing Naruto to fall over and pulling Ayame on top of him.
"What do you think you are doing to my baby girl!" A woman's voice yelled in anger.
Naruto blinked a couple of times to look at the woman that was standing on the door and noticed she had a pan in her hands, a pan that for some reason seemed to emit a radiance of intent to kill.
"Mother! It's nothing like that!" Ayame yelled as she slightly sat up, forgetting she was ontop of Naruto.
"Ayame! He's underage! OH MY GOD! You are so getting in trouble for this young lady!" Ayame's mom yelled.
"I told you it's nothing like that, he just pulled the strings of my corset a bit too hard!"
"Why are you letting a teen with raging hormones like him do it! I'm your mother! You could've called me!"
"But I didn't even know you were home today!"
"Eh...Neechan..." Naruto's voice barely reached Ayame's ears.
"Hm, what's wrong?" Ayame looked over her shoulder to see a blue faced Naruto.
"Can't...breathe..." Naruto managed to say before passing out due to obvious lack of oxigen.
"Ah! Naruto-kun!" Ayame quickly jumped off him.
"Naruto-kun, Naruto-kun! Hang in there!" Ayame said as she shook Naruto a couple of times.
"What happened...?" I thought as I slowly opened my eyes.
The first thing I saw once my vision was clear again was a middle aged lady holding a frying pan in her hands and Ayame-neechan.
A middle aged lady...
With a frying pan...that radiated killing intent...I think?
A middle aged lady with a frying pan...
"Welcome back to the land of the living Naruto-kun." The lady said.
"AH! DON'T KILL ME!" I shouted at the top of my lungs as I shot up.
Ayame-neechan and the lady looked wide-eyed at me, like I just said something funny, but it isn't funny at all 'tebayo. That obachan looks like she's ready to hit me on the head a couple of times with that thing. Ayame-neechan started to giggle and the lady let out a sigh.
"I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. Anyway, you two had somewhere to go right? I'll ask your dad to come home early and fix that door." The lady said as she stood up and left.
"Ok, bye mom." Ayame-neechan said.
I still don't get what the heck just happened...
"Ehm...Like...what in the world happened?" Naruto asked as he looked towards the door that was lying on the floor.
"Hm, you don't remember?"
"Eh...no not really."
"I asked you to tie my corset, you pulled a bit too hard, causing me to say something that had my mom's ears tingling, she came and kicked the door out, out of shock you fell over pulled me on you and I kind of sat on your stomach as I argued with my mom, you weren't able to breath and passed out. If I hadn't preformed CPR on you, you'd probably have died and that's a short summary of it all."
"Died!" Naruto let out.
"Hm, probably...Well let's go then, we'll take it easy with things since I don't know how well you are feeling but still we made a promise to my dad that you and I have to keep, remember?"
Ayame stood up from the side of the bed Naruto was lying on and started walking.
"Come on, get your ass of my bed already." Ayame said smiling.
"Huh, your bed? EH!" Naruto yelled as he jumped of Ayame's bed and straightend the sheets and all.
"Come on, there's no need for such a thing." Ayame grabbed Naruto's hand and pulled him after her.
Again Naruto blushed as they were holding hands and then something just hit him, "Wait...You said...CPR!"
"As in CPR, CPR?"
"Yeah CPR as in CPR, CPR."
"But that means!" Naruto blushed and touched his lips with his free hand.
"Means what?" Ayame asked as she looked towards Naruto, who was still touching his own lips.
Ayame turned bright red, knowing what he was thinking of,"I-it's nothing like that! It was just to...well...y-you know..."
As they left Ayame's house, both of them were silent for a couple of moments.
"Ah! So where are we going to?" Naruto asked grinning, but still not daring to look Ayame into her eyes.
"First we'll just go to a restaurant. And just for this once I'll pay for you. Ow! That's another lesson I guess. If you can always pay for your date's meal and make sure that she won't have to pay yours for you." Ayame said, also not looking Naruto in his eyes.
"Huh? Why not?" Naruto asked confused.
"Because, that just isn't right. A man should always be able to pay for himself and if possible for his date. That's just how it is." Ayame said.
"Hn, Girls don't want to pay for the guys just because they'd rather spend it on other things then on someone who likes them." Naruto said moderately annoyed.
"That's not true!" Ayame raised her voice and looked towards Naruto with a slight blush.
"Then why won't they each take turns paying? On one date a man could do it and on the next a womam can..." Naruto said.
"You might have a point there..." Ayame said as she blinked at him,"Ah! With all these things happening I almost forgot!"
"Huh? What?" Naruto asked as he questioningly looked at Ayame.
"Why do we need to do this? My dad wouldn't set us up on a date without good reason. He said it was helping you out with something, right?" Ayame asked.
Naruto told her about how wanted to ask Sakura out for Valentine's Day but that his friend, Rock Lee was there before him and asked her out and how he didn't know what she answered because he headed off, followed up with his dilemma of wether to get rejected or have the posibility to hurt a friend's feelings.
"That's all? You should've stayed and listen to what she answered." Ayame said once Naruto was done explaining.
"Yeah but even if you say so..." Naruto said as he crossed his arms and pondered.
"Naruto-kun, just so you know, Haruno Sakura isn't the only girl availible you know? I'm sure you know more girls then just her." Ayame said.
"Ofcourse...There's Ino, who is kinda Sakura's rival and best friend...Then there's Hinata, she's friendly but for some reason she keeps fainting when I get close to her..." Naruto said counting on his fingers.
"Maybe she thinks you have a scary face." Ayame said slightly giggling.
"What! I don't have a scary face!"
"AH! Scary! Scary! Get away from me!"
"That's not funny!"
Ayame giggled as she pretended to faint,"Any other girls that you let faint or know atleast?" She smiled at Naruto.
"...grr...It's not funny..." Naruto muttered, "Hmm...Then there is Tenten, who'se Neji and Fuzzy Eyebrows' team-mate...I don't really know much about her. Ow and then there is my friend's Gaara sister, Temari, from what I've seen she's quite...agressive."
Naruto took a thinking pose and nodded a couple of times.
"And any other girls you know?" Ayame asked.
"Other then them I only know a couple of women." Naruto replied nodding.
"Well thank you for the compliment." Ayame said, Naruto looking up in surprise towards her.
"You didn't name me when you were naming the girls which means you see me as an adult woman." Ayame said sticking her tongue out towards Naruto. He grinned widely and let out a short laugh as he put his hands behind his head.
"Well, let's get something eat huh?" Ayame said once they reached the restaurant.
"Hehe. Ofcourse. All this talking and thinking has kind of made me hungry. Plus you can teach me more over dinner, right?" Naruto asked.
"Well, We'll need to see who else you could ask out on a date. Or have a couple of dates before Valentine's Day so you get used to it and all." Ayame replied as they headed into the restaurant.
They soon had their own table and had ordered their meals, so they were now waiting for their meals to arrive.
"But who should I ask for such a thing. I don't think you'd have the time to take me on multiple dates. And if I suddenly asked any of the girls I know they'd think I've given up on Sakura-chan and that I like them then!"
"Then how about asking someone who people won't think you could date?" Ayame suggested and smiled at Naruto.
"Like who could I ask then?"
"You know some women, right? I think they're probably some of the Jounin so you could ask one of them to 'discuss shinobi business' over a dinner or something." Ayame said.
"What!" Naruto yelled.
"Sssht, Keep your voice down, people are staring."
"Anyway, why not? It might be weird but you could ask them for advice as well." Ayame said.
"Because..." Naruto replied.
"Well, what women do you know then?" Ayame asked.
"Eh...Tsunade-obachan, but I doubt she knows a lot about dating since she's always just drinking sake and gambling...I doubt she really went on many dates...then again I might be wrong. Then there's Shizune-neechan, but she's always making sure that obachan works so she can't go and date that much either...Then Kurenai-sensei and that chuunin examiner, what's her face...Mitarashi...Anko or something like that. I think they have the most time off." Naruto stated nodding.
"And out of the two who do you think could teach you the most?" Ayame said and the ears of the person sitting behind her perked.
"Hmmm...Probably, that chuunin examiner. Ero-sennin told me once she had some kind of disease or something...Nymphiwhatchamacallit? Anyway he said it meant that she likespeople a lot or something." Naruto said and now the ears of the person behind him perked.
Ayame stared blankly at Naruto as he pondered, however his pondering was soon disturbed.
"Yo Naruto! I didn't think I'd find a ramen obsessed guy like you in a restaurant like this!" A middle aged white haired man's head popped up behind Naruto's seat from the seat behind him, scaring the shit out of Naruto.
"Gah! Ero-sennin! What are you doing here!" Naruto said pointing at his sensei's face.
"That's my line, you brat. Buuuut..." Jiraiya sang the last word of his sentence as he looked up towards Ayame, "I already see what brought you here. Hehehe, Who could've thought that you listened to my wise teachings these past two and a half years about women and actually made use of them!"
"Huh? What are you talking about?" Naruto asked.
"Tell me, Naruto. Why would you need advice about women from a woman when you already learned everything from me? A sly way to take her out...effective but sly..." Jiraiya said nodding.
"That's not the case!...Hey wait a minute! How do you know what I was talking about with her! How long have you been here Ero-sennin and what else did you hear!" Naruto asked as he put one foot on his seat and dramatically pointed towards Jiraiya's face.
"Talking about with her? I heard nothing. I just happened to sit down just in time to hear my student call me by the name I forbid him to use out in public." Jiraiya said innocently.
"...Liar." Naruto replied.
"Ah, anyway...Watch and learn Naruto." Jiraiya said as he turned back around.
"Oi, you wanna see old fart's failing compliments and get smacked in the face by some lady?" Naruto whispered to Ayame who nodded and sat down next to Naruto.
The two of them perked over the edge of the couch and looked at the seat across Jiraiya, there was no one there yet.
"Uhm, excuse me Miss." Jiraiya said as he raised his hand when a waitress walked into their direction.
"Can I help you sir?" The waitress asked as she walked up to Jiraiya.
She was quite good looking, probably just a bit taller then Naruto and the first thing that Jiraiya ofcourse noted was that her chest was quite big for her.
"Ah yes, Would you mind to sit down over there for a second?" Jiraiya asked.
"Sorry sir, but I have customers to help."
"Well, I'm a customer to and part of the help you could provide me comes from sitting down for a few moments."
"...Well ok, but if I get scolded by my boss you'll have to take the blame." The waitress said as she sat down across Jiraiya.
Jiraiya raised a slight smirk before speaking up,"Might I ask why you are working in a restaurant?"
"To earn money ofcourse." The waitress said smiling sheepishly, "I have to keep up the rent you know. Besides it isn't so bad. The tips of most people are quite a lot."
"I see...But you don't plan to work here your entire life, right?" Jiraiya asked as he perked an eyebrow.
"Ofcourse not, I want to become a fashion designer." The waitress replied.
"Hooo. That's quite interesting." Jiraiya said. (A/N: Hooo is that sound Jiraiya makes a lot of times, ya know in surprise and all)
"Oi, when does he get smacked?" Ayame whispered to Naruto.
"I don't know. The old fart is lasting longer then usual...Maybe he wants to show off in front of you."
"Yeah you. You're the girl here. Probably he'd like to take both that girl and you back to his hermit shelter."
"Hermit...shelter...?" Ayame's eyes twitched and the two of them then focussed back on Jiraiya's attempt to arrange somethign with the waitress.
"You know, you look more like a model to me." Jiraiya said as he took a zip of the water that was already on the table.
"A model? Me? Are you some kind of agent?" The waitress asked surprised.
"Yeah, you have really pretty eyes. I bet they'd come out great on pictures...Though I'm not an agent I have an...eye for good looking future models." Jiraiya said as his eyes averted down to the waitress' chest.
"Ehm...My eyes are up here..." The waitress said.
"Hm, what?" Jiraiya asked as he looked up.
"You were staring at my chest, weren't you." The waitress said as she glared at Jiraiya.
"No, no, no, no! I was just looking at your uniform! It er...looks like it's kind of tightly wrapped on your body..." Jiraiya said.
"Yeah it is! They didn't have one that perfectly fitted me, the other uniforms were all way too big so I had to take this one." The waitress said as she demonstarted how tight it was, Jiraiya smirking widely and drool escaping the corner of his mouth.
"What a liar, he was looking at her chest, even I could tell that she had a rather large chest and that he looked at it." Naruto whispered.
"Oooh, Naruto, you stared too, didn't you?" Ayame whispered back and softly giggled.
"No I didn't." Naruto whispered back fierce.
"Naruto no echii." Ayame giggled more.
Naruto softly pushed in her side with his elbow.
"Sir, You are a customer and I appreciate the fact that you find me attractive but if you continue thinking perverted thoughts about me I'm going to smack you trough that wall..."
Jiraiya shook out of his trance and quickly whiped off any remaining drool with a napkin.
"Ahem...Sorry about that...I couldn't help but remember something as you...well it was just that something happened here many years ago when I was younger. The uniforms haven't changed since then you know."
"Happened? Oh I see. Sir, you met your wife here or something, right?" The waitress asked kindly smiling at him.
"Wife...? Ehm, I'm single." Jiraiya said grinning widely.
"Then what happened here that you just remembered?" The waitress asked.
"Well...It just so happens that a lot of years ago there was also a girl working here that was er...quite attractive to say the least. And her uniform was too tight and small for her as well so..." Jiraiya said and then whispered something in the waitress' ear, who flushed red in her face.
"That's awful!" The waitress said when Jiraiya was done with his story.
"Yeah, isn't it?" Jiraiya said noding as he sat back, "So how about you and I go and get you out of that uniform then?"
"Yeah, let's go! I don't want to spend another minute in this horrible place." The waitress stood up and so did Jiraiya.
The two of them walked towards the exit and stopped for a moment there as the manager was standing there as well.
"Kani-chan, where are you go..." The manager said but got interrupted by a loud smack to his face, leaving a red hand print on it.
"That's for having the same perverted idea's as your uncle!" The waitress yelled and then stomped out of the restaurant. Jiraiya grinned towards Naruto and Ayame, raised his thumb up before quickly following the waitress.
"Well atleast someone got smacked..." Ayame said as she blinked.
"How the hell did Ero-sennin not screw up?" Naruto asked no one in particular.
"Hm? What's wrong?"
"Lesson number three: Don't ever try to pull what your sensei just did...It won't work that well on any other girl then that one most likely."
Naruto nodded as he turned 90 degrees, Ayame doing the same only the other way around. Both of them realised how close they were now actually sitting with their faces towards eachother.
A blush appeared on Naruto's face and there appeared one also on Ayame's, "...Naruto-kun..."
They slowly leaned forward towards eachother,"A...a...a-ano!"
They looked away towards their table to see a waitress put down their meals and bowing while blushing madly as well.
"Sorry to interupt...Really really really sorry! But the meals are ready." The waitress said while keeping her eyes shut tight.
Both Naruto and Ayame jumped and sat straight up as they said in chorus, "Itadakimasu!"
"Have a good meal." The waitress quickly walked away.
Naruto started chowing down his meal but was interrupted by Ayame who spoke up, "Lesson four, Don't chow down your food."
Naruto looked towards her and saw that she was still slightly blushing.
"Why not? It's delicious, so I want a lot of it at once and all." Naruto asked.
"Well look at your face then." Ayame said faintly smiling.
"My face?" Naruto asked as he poked his own face, feeling all kinds of leftovers from his meal sticking on it.
"Ah I see..." Naruto quickly whiped it off with his napkin.
"You're a ninja right? You should eat your food like one." Ayame said.
"Eat your food like a ninja?" Naruto asked confused.
"Shinobi don't leave a trace when gathering information, right? Eat your food without leaving a trace of it behind on your face other then a satisfied look afterwards." Ayame answered.
"Ah I see...Then I'll try that." Naruto said smiling widely, "But even eating still won't solve my problems."
"About that, I already told you, you should ask one of the women you know. They could teach you a lot."
The person who had previously been sitting on the seat behind Ayame, before Ayame sat down next to Naruto, stood up now and left quietly with a wide smirk.
"Even so, that still won't get me anyone for Valentine's Day this year."
"I see, then we'd have to hook you up with a girl as well..."
"Eh! Hook me up? But how are you planning to do that!" Naruto asked wide eyed.
"Hm...Let me think about that for a few moments." Ayame closed her eyes and thought as she held her chopsticks between her fingers, as if meditating to take a certain single piece of her plate without looking.
"Ah I know! How about you write love letters to every girl you know with a reply adress so they can send replies. You'll just send them anonymously and they won't know who it is."
"Then how will they like me if they don't know who I am?"
"They'll be curious to who you are and might want to meet you and all then. You'll just have to write it so that they won't know it's you and that you describe what you like about them."
"I see...Should I even send one to Sakura-chan then?"
"Ofcourse, it will be easier for you to write down your feelings for her then it would be saying that right in front of her."
Naruto nodded as he put down his plate and thought for a few moments before speaking up again,"But...If I put my own adress underneath it, people will find out it's me."
Ayame let out a sigh and put down her chopsticks, "That's why I said reply adress. Just put my adress underneath it, my mom most likely will start travelling again tomorrow to promote father's ramenstand and to find new ingredients to put into our ramen. And since father and I are most of the time at the ramenstand and I'm home before father, I can check the mail and see if you have got any replies back."
"Hm, hm...That would work most likely. But I have no idea what to write to any of them."
"Listen, I have a day-off tomorrow. How about we write the letters then and send them to everyone. Sounds like a good idea right?"
Naruto grinned widely with his fox grin and nodded,"Sounds great to me. We can discus everything else then as well."
After finishing their meal, Ayame paid the bill and they heaed outside, where they were greeted by loud groans of pain from the alley next to the restaurant. when they walked past it. They stopped in their tracks as a shiver ran down their spine and they slowly walked into the alley.
There, Jiraiya was lying beaten and bruised against the wall.
"Eh! Ero-sennin! What happened!" Naruto yelled as he and Ayame rushed towards his aid.
"Naruto? That you?" Jiraiya asked, and just then Naruto noted that he was covered in scratch marks and had two red hand prints on his face.
"...You did it again, didn't you...You ero-sennin." Naruto said glaring at his sensei.
"I couldn't help it...She knew she wanted it! And they looked so nice and soft...And then she did this to me! Life's unfair Naruto, unfair I tell ya!" Jiraiya said as he put he arms out in front of him and acted like he was squeezing something with his hands. Much to Naruto's surprise, Ayame smacked Jiraiya in his face.
"It's your own fault, you shouldn't do such a thing to a woman unless you are close to her. Hmph."
Naruto let out a sigh and Jiraiya dropped his arms before starting to mutter, "So close...so close..."
"I'll have to take him to Tsunade-obachan. Sorry Ayame-chan...I think that's all for tonight." Naruto stated as he picked up his sensei.
"No it isn't...Lesson number 5: Don't use your sensei's ways to get to a girl." Ayame replied smiling at Naruto before turning around and walking out of the alley.
"Ayame-chan?" Naruto asked as he looked towards her.
Ayame turned her head and looked over her shoulder towards him, "Hm?"
"Thank you for willing to help me out. Really thanks." Naruto said smiling.
"It's nothing, just promise me to take me out on another date where we actually can do more then just have a meal." Ayame replied smiling widely.
"Hehe, sure thing." Naruto said as Ayame headed around the corner.
"Naruto..." Jiraiya said.
"What is it Ero-sennin?" Naruto asked as he raised an eyebrow.
Jiraiya raised a wide grin and popped off to his normal self, unscratched and unbeaten.
"Eh! You weren't beaten up by that girl!"
"As a matter of fact I've send her to a hotel where's she waiting for me. But I just wanted to see how it went between you and Ayame-chan." Jiraiya emphasized the last part as he grinned widely again.
"We don't have anything! She was just to help me with some things I need help with!" Naruto retorted.
"Ah...You are really my student." Jiraiya said grinning as he placed a hand on Naruto's shoulder, "I remember when Yondaime first used his natural charm to make a lady fall for him just like you just did. Don't underestimate my teachings Naruto! They'll help you out."
"When it comes to
being a shinobi they do..." Naruto muttered but Jiraiya heard
"Don't say such a thing, I'm a man of many wisdoms as some call it. Actually I got it mostly from Sandaime but that doesn't matter. Anyway, You know my novels right?"
"Ofcourse I do, but what about them?"
"Well...You're offically under age but I think it's time I handed you one to improve your knowledge about women among other things. Yondaime was the first one to read my very first novel you know? So I'm going to give you the very first Icha Icha Paradise I ever wrote and that Yondaime read..." Jiraiya stated as he pulled out a Icha Icha Paradise novel from his pockets.
"Huh?" Just as Jiraiya took it out it was gone already.
"If Yondaime read this then it can't be that perverted! After all Yondaime is the greatest Hokage ever until I become one! Later Ero-sennin!" Naruto yelled before rushing off with the book.
"Ah, He's still a cute kid when it comes to certain matters." Jiraiya said grinning as he rubbed the back of his head, "I wonder where this will lead though."
"Yondaime Hokage read this book and was popular with the ladies...If that's true then this book must be not so bad right?" Naruto thought as he rushed home.
Five minutes after Naruto had gotten home and started reading Icha Icha Paradise...
"Gah...gaaah...Yondaime...read this? I think I'm going to die from this nose bleed..." Naruto said as he was lying back down on his bed with his nose bleeding like crazy.
"I see...He got strong by surviving this book and ever since then he could handle major blood loss...I'm going to do that too!" Naruto said with a pinched nose as he sat back up and read the next couple of lines in the book. Blood again came out of his nostrills as he shot back down on his bed.
"...Who ever said reading couldn't hurt you was wrong...I'm not going to read that anymore until I've recovered from my bloodloss..." Naruto stated as he shut the book tight and laid it on his desk.
He looked over to his alarmclock and let go of his nose as it stopped bleeding, "Tomorrow...Ayame-chan will help me with those letters and get me a date..."
