A/N: It's my first try at a Naruto fanfic; and actual fanfic, to be specific. This was an evil plot bunny too, it smacked me in the middle of the night when I was trying to sleep! And It's not letting me stop either…
Warnings: Implied yaoi for now, I think that's it…
Disclaimer: I don't own "Walk Away" by Paula Deanda and I don't own Naruto or else I wouldn't very well be sitting in my home fretting about my grades and other random stuff.
Summary: Naruto and Sasuke used to be together then Sasuke had to be the jerk he is and decide that his duty to his family came first so he broke it off with Naruto and married Sakura so that he could 'revive the Uchiha clan'. Naruto got over it, married Hinata and became Hokage. But of course, Sasuke never really did get over it, being the way he is… Silly goose.

You gonna remember me

Walk Away by Paula Deanda
"N-Naruto-kun! Be careful!" The beautiful black haired woman said as she chased after her husband who held their four-year-old high above the heads of the citizens of Konoha. Said citizens merely watched in amusement as their Hokage spun his son through the air as the child laughed and clapped in delight. The white eyes of a little boy spinning in the air reflected everything but right now saw only a handsome blonde-haired man with an aura that radiated happiness to the world.
"No worries, Hinata-chan!" Naruto Uzumaki, age twenty-four said when his wife had finally caught up with him. He grinned brightly at her as his sapphire blue eyes sparkled with mischief. Hinata sighed as she took their son back into her arms. Hiroki (1) Uzumaki whined as Hinata gently checked him over, "Mooooooom!!! I was okay, really!! C'mon Dad, do it again!"
"Your mother is right, Hiroki. Your father really shouldn't be so careless. Which he is if any of past experiences with him remain true." Said a dry voice. Hiroki looked up and squealed as he launched himself at the newcomer. "UNCLE GAARA!!!"
And indeed, there stood the Kazekage in all his white and blue robed glory, smiling mysteriously down at his godchild. Naruto turned as well, "Eh? Gaara what are you doing here?" Konohamaru, the Hokage's personal aid, who had suddenly appeared, very out of breath, slapped the back of Naruto's head.
"Hokage-sama no BAKA!!" He wailed as he pounded Naruto's back with his fists. "I told you three weeks ago to go through your mail!! But you didn't!! And that's why you DON'T KNOW THAT KAZEKAGE-SAMA IS HERE FOR THE CHUUNIN EXAMS!!" Question marks floated around the Hokage's pretty blonde head as he spluttered, "B-b-b-but I thought the Chuunin exams weren't for another three months!" Hinata giggled softly at her husband's antics. "Naruto-kun, you haven't changed the dates on your calendars for three months."
"Why didn't you remind me then, Hinata-chan?" Naruto asked. Hinata merely shook her head, "Tsunade-sama told me to let you be responsible for yourself. And Shizune-san told Konohamaru-kun to help organize you." She reprimanded gently. Naruto hugged Hinata suddenly, "Hinata-chan, you are the best wife a man could ever ask for!" He exclaimed. "You always have my best interests at heart, believe it!" The beautiful woman blushed happily in her beloved spouse's arms as Hiroki and Gaara discussed the upcoming Chuunin exams and how Hiroki was going to become Hokage someday in the background.
Naruto slung an arm around Konohamaru who was sniffling, wrapped his other arm around his wife and chattered loudly with them as Sabaku no Gaara carried Hiroki and the walked behind them, headed for the Hyuuga compounds. Hinata looked up adoringly at the wonderful man she was married to as he greeted and was greeted by the people he protected. And she was glad to see that there was no flash of pain when he saw a certain pink haired woman shopping for groceries. Because now the Hyuuga heir could see that this man that she loved and adored was finally healing.
Sakura Haruno crooned softly as she brushed the hair of her two-year-old son, Michio (2) Uchiha. His black hair gleamed softly in the light from the lanterns and his bright green eyes stared in wonder as little hands played with his mother's pink hair. She picked him up and tucked him into bed a minute later and blew out the lights. Walking softly through the halls of the Uchiha mansion, she opened the door to her and her husband's room, Sasuke Uchiha. He was asleep already and the lights were also out.
She climbed into the bed next to him, ignoring the painful stab to her heart when he whispered the name of someone else as he wrapped his arms around her. The beautiful young mother buried her head into her husband's chest as two tears leaked out of her eyes. Would the day ever come when he said her name instead of his?
His breath tickled the hair on the top of her head as he whispered words from his subconscious.
"Naruto. Naruto, come back, please… I'm sorry, I'm sorry…"
(1)Hiroki: Abundant joy and strength.
(2) Michio: Man on the right path.
