"No way am I going to let Kakashi-sensei fuck me!" Naruto shouted.

Tsunade squeezed her eyes shut and rubbed her temples; she was starting to get a migraine from Naruto's yelling. "Calm down, boy. It's a tradition; it's merely apart of your training."

"Naruto nearly exploded, "How can you call that training?!"

This had all started a couple weeks ago, when he'd noticed that everybody seemed to be acting a little strangely. Well, not everybody. Most of the villagers remained normal, but some of his fellow genins (particularly those around his own age) appeared to be on edge. Asuma-sensei and Gai-sensei were acting funny too; they were easily startled and lost in thought most of the time.

He'd considered asking Sakura or Sasuke what was wrong with everyone, but he was afraid that it was something obvious and they'd make fun of him. Ten-ten seemed to be the only one acting normally, and she was always really nice, so Naruto decided to ask her what was going on.


Ten-ten looked up from polishing a mace. She was sitting cross-legged in one of the old training grounds in the woods around Konoha, weapons spread around her, waiting to be cleaned. "What is it, Naruto-kun?"

Naruto didn't know her that well, but she was just one of those people that were easy to make friends with. "I was just wondering why everyone's been so jumpy lately. They're all walking around like they're expecting a bomb to go off at any moment or something."

"Oh, that. Don't worry about them, Naruto-kun, they're just nervous about the 'emotional training' that's coming up in a couple of days." She put the mace down on her left, and went to pick up a rusty kunai. "Hey, do you think you could help me oil some of these, Naruto-kun?" But when she looked up again, Naruto was no where to be seen.

He'd run off to go talk to Tsunade. Apparently, there was some emotional training that was supposed to take place in two days that the others knew about, but he didn't. Tsunade-obaa-chan seemed like the safest person to ask what it was, as she was the least likely to laugh at him.

Naruto rushed into her office without being announced. He did this so often that the ANBU guards didn't even bother to stop him; ordinarily they kept everyone outside of the Hokage's office until she okay-ed them to enter, but Tsunade seemed to have taken a shine to the rambunctious genin. She had standing orders that Naruto was aloud to visit her when ever he wanted. The blonde had no idea of the honor he was given, he took it completely for granted that no one stopped him from seeing the 'old lady.' "Tsunade-obaa-chan!"

"What is it, Naruto-kun?" Tsunade was vaguely annoyed. She'd actually been doing her paperwork for once and didn't want any interruptions.

"I just heard that there was going to be some kind of special emotional training taking place in a couple of days. No one's told me anything about it, so I was wondering if you could tell me what it is."

Tsunade gaped. She was struck speechless for a moment. Could the boy seriously not know? "I don't find this amusing in the least--go home."

"This is not a joke. Just tell me, okay?" Naruto was blushing a little in embarrassment, and he was angry with himself for being embarrassed.

The boy seriously didn't know what was going to happen in two days. Tsunade felt a quick stab of pity for him. Most of the students found out about it while they were still at the academy; it was the subject of many a crude joke shared by friends, but Naruto had been shunned by the other students in his academy days. On second thought, it was perfectly believable that he didn't know anything about this.

"Sit down, Naruto." Her tone was very firm, and Naruto obeyed. He was finally going to find out about this emotional training that was causing everyone to be so weird. "As you know, the main purpose of Konoha ninjas is to protect the citizens of Konoha." Naruto nodded--everyone knew that. "That is not the case with most ninja villages." Tsunade sighed at Naruto's puzzled expression. The boy was still so naïve. "In most villages, ninja exist to further the villages' power and control over others. Do you know what rape is Naruto?"

"Huh?" The genin was confused; what did rape have to do with enemy ninja from other villages?

"Rape. Do you know what it is?"

"Of course I do, but…what does that have to do with anything?"

Tsunade sighed again and continued. "Rape isn't about sex--it's about control. It's a common practice among other ninja to rape captured ninja as a form of physiological torcher, to express their power and control over them."

"That's horrible!"

"Yes, it is. That's why we have a tradition here in Konoha that takes place every three years."

"And this is the emotional training I was told about?"

"Yes. Every three years the jounin who leads a team of genin who are fifteen years or older will deflower those among their subordinates who are still virgins."

Naruto sat there a moment, trying to figure out just what it was that Tsunade had said. "Wait. Does that mean that in two days I…with Kakashi-sensei…" The hokage nodded. Naruto leapt up out of his chair. "No way am I going to let Kakashi-sensei fuck me!" (And this would bring us back to where we came in).

"Calm down, boy. It's a tradition; it's mearly apart of your training."

Naruto nearly exploded, "How can you call that training?!

Tsunade was angry herself now--no one yelled at her in her own office. She leapt from her chair as well to bring her hands crashing down on the desktop, cracking it a little. "I told you to sit down!" Naruto cringed back into his seat.

Tsunade took a moment to calm herself before continuing with the explanation. As you get older, you'll gain more skill in the ninja art. Which means that you'll be assigned more dangerous missions, where you'll be more likely to encounter more dangerous enemy ninja (meaning you'll be more likely to be captured by said ninja). Enemy ninja make it a practice to rape their captives. You'll have a better chance of coping with it if you have already experienced sex from someone whom you are able to trust. It is a perfectly legitimate and necessary piece of emotional training." Tsunade sat back down. She could really use some sake. That had been a mouthful.

When said like that, Naruto couldn't deny the practicality of it. "Okay, I understand, but I still don't like the idea." The blonde crossed his arms and pouted.

It seemed like such a silly thing after such a serious conversation that a smile was actually coxed onto Tsunade's lips. "You don't necessarily have to sleep with your sensei. This only applies to virgins. If you are able to find a partner before the day after tomorrow, then you are exempt from the emotional training."

Naruto's mind immediately went to Sakura—but he knew better. Sakura only liked that bastard, Sasuke, who didn't like her back. Feeling depressed, Naruto muttered 'thank you, Tsunade-sama' and left the hokage's office.
