Sakura gripped her shoulders as she stared at the gates before her. She took a shaky breath when Tsunade placed a long, slender hand on her shoulder.

"Sakura, as you're teacher I say that you are doing a really stupid thing," Sakura winced at her words, and Tsunade sighed. "But as you're mother figure, I just need to say be careful and come back to me." She said, and Sakura broke down, tears cascading down her face. She turned into Tsunade and hugged her tightly.

"I-I need to do t-this." She managed to say. Tsunade just nodded and knew not to break down.

"You know what to do if anything goes bad." She mumbled into Sakura's pink hair. The girl nodded and wiped the tears.

"Of course, bye Tsunade-sensei, I'll write or something." She joked and adjusted her backpack strap.

"I'll keep that in mind. Good-bye." The blonde said and disappeared before Sakura's eyes. She sighed and turned on her heel and collided with a stone chest. She looked up and gulped.

"Naruto, what are you doing here?" She asked, trying to side-step around him but the boy stopped her.

"Seeing you off…I heard this mission might be a little tough for one person." He stated and Sakura smiled, glad he really didn't know she was leaving.

"Ah, you know me I'll be fine." She replied and wrapped her arms around his waist and hugged him.

"You've gotten a lot taller since you came back." Sakura said and Naruto grinned.

"Well you've gotten even prettier so we all win." He slammed his hand over his mouth and shook his head. "I swear I didn't mean to say that." Sakura looked up and smiled at him.

"Well that's better than the first time you saw me. Bye Naruto." She laughed and kissed his cheek.

"I'll see you later." He mumbled, smiling as Sakura slipped away from him and she dashed to the trees.

Sakura slowed and glanced behind her. Her emerald eyes sparkled from the recently cried tears.

"I'll miss everyone. But I need to do this." She said pulling her hair into a high ponytail and rolling her neck. "This bastard better be ready for the worst time in his life." With that she turned her back towards Konoha and began her search for the man who killed her father.
