Hello! Note: This story is going to be published on two different sites. Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto in anyway, shape or form. I make no money in this endeavor whatsoever. Onward!

Sarutobi took a deep puff of his pipe. The new jounin was already in an argument with Kakashi. "I want Team 7," the dark-haired man said calmly, his arms folded across his chest. Kakashi's one visible eye was narrowed at the other jounin.

"I'm the only one who can teach Sasuke how to use his Sharingan when it manifests. You only just moved into this village, Himaru-san, you're in no condition t o be making requests." Himaru's dark blue eyes seemed to pierce right through Kakashi as he spoke.

"That is exactly why you shouldn't teach him. Once he develops his Sharingan, you'll start training him more instead of training his teammates. Konoha might lose two potential heroes if you teach him." Kakashi really felt like punching this man. Before Kakashi could retort, Himaru started up again. "Not to mention, I've studied demons for along time. I can teach Naruto how to use Kyuubi without him losing control." There were small gasps from some of the other new jounin. Sarutobi raised his eyebrow at Himaru.

"And how do you know Naruto is Kyuubi's container?" Himaru smiled grimly at the Hokage.

"I'm afraid it's not hard to figure out, Hokage-sama. "

"How do we know you won't show favoritism towards Naruto?" Kakashi argued. Himaru smiled again, though this time it was more in mockery of Kakashi.

"Simple. For Naruto to be able to control the Kyuubi safely, he'll need multiple ties to his sanity. In other words, team bonding is key. What better way to insure that, then with group training?" Kakashi clenched both fists, but released them with a sigh.

"Fine. You can have them." Himaru smiled once again. Sarutobi coughed to get everyone's attention.

"Okay, now that the teams have been finalized, you're all dismissed!"
