"SENNEN GOROSHI!!!" Thinking
"SENNEN GOROSHI!!!" Inners/Kyuubi
Author's note: I know I know I should be writing my other story but damn plot bunnies won't leave me alone. I do also recall promising to write a nejisaku story for some of my readers well here it is, now read seriously read now. Again Kakashi is Sakura's dad and Rin her mom was killed in the Kyuubi attack on the village. Sakura was put with a foster family right after the fox was defeated and Kakashi had visitation rights, so she knows who her real dad is.
Tsunade looked down upon her village with sadness and relief. The war with Sound had led to many casualties and much damage, though somehow Konoha pulled through. The village was now being rebuilt piece by piece, Tsunade let out a small smile as she saw young children eagerly helping their parents rebuild their home and that smile turned frown as she saw a child mourning the loss of his parents.
"Tsunade-shishou." A voice called softly.
"Please do not look so sad it really hurts to see you like this." Said a worried Sakura.
"How can I not be Sakura, look at all this devastation, all this pain. As Hokage I…I was supposed to prevent this."
"No one could've prevented this Tsunade-shishou. Not you, not I, no one could have prevented this. Look around you, yes it may be a sad sight to see, but as you look more closely you see the hope, the joy, the will of fire that burns within each and every person in his village. And with that will Konoha will rise again and stand proudly for all to see."
"And I thought Naruto was the one who was supposed to give the inspirational speeches."
"Either way Tsunade-shishou don't worry things will get better soon, besides we did manage to save quite a few lives."
"Yeah you're right as always. Sheesh Sakura if I'm not careful you may steal my job from me."
"Nah that's Naruto's job."
Tsunade just smiled as she quietly recited her sensei's famous words.
"Where tree leaves dance…one shall find flames…the fire's shadow will illuminate the village…and tree leaves shall bud anew."
"Nothing Sakura, now will you get your lazy ass out of here and get to work." Tsunade playfully said to her favorite student.
Sakura just laughed before saying a quick goodbye and exiting the office.
Once she was gone Tsunade pulled out a scroll that said FORBIDDEN USE
"Sakura I've already made my choice and it would seem I'm going to have to send you on a mission soon, let us hope you succeed."
"Shizune please get me a list of available ninja Chuunin and above!"HOSPITAL
Sakura was now on her lunch break and currently visiting Naruto and Sasuke.
"How are you guys feeling?" Asked Sakura.
"Hn I've been better."
"I'M FEELING GREAT! Thanks to you Sakura-chan."
"Don't be modest cause you don't seem to acknowledge the fox that is currently healing your every wound." Stated Sakura.
Naruto just smiled sheepishly before saying "Oh yeah I forgot about that."
"Oh will you two just shut up." Said Sakura in annoyance.
"Whatever I have to leave anyway, bye guys."
Sakura exited the room quietly thinking about how happy she was to know that none of the Konoha 12 was killed during the attack, although she would've appreciated it more if most of them weren't in the hospital. Sakura just sighed as she went into the room that contained the Gai look-alike.
"Hello Lee-san how are you feeling today?"
"Just great Sakura-san, I will soon be out of this hospital ready to embrace youth."
Sakura let out a small giggle before mentioning that in his condition he would not be leaving the hospital anytime soon.
"Well no matter lets get your treatment started so you can get better and embrace the youth you love oh so much."
Once Lee's treatment was over Sakura went next door to do a quick check-up on Kiba and Akamaru, who by the way both got off with minor injuries.
"Hey Sakura!" Greeted Kiba
"Hello you two."
"Shall we get started on your check-up then?"
After about fifteen minutes of looking over wounds, bandage changing, etc. the check-up was over.
"Well everything seems to be healing fine, at this rate you two should be back in the game in no time."
"Oh, before I forget, here are the treats you've been asking for Kiba."
"Yeah thanks, Akamaru won't eat anything else its frustrating really."
"What its true."
"Okay, well I gotta go now, Ja ne."FRONT DESK
"Sakura-san." Asked a nurse at the front desk.
"Godaime-sama told me to tell you that your shift is over."
"Nani? I have only been working for a couple hours."
"I know, but it is what she said so you're done."
Sigh "Very well, I'll go get changed now."
"This was unexpected."
"Didn't I get rid of you?"
"And here I thought you'd be happy to hear me."
"…No, but I am here and I have a suggestion.""And what may that be?"
"That we head off to the Hyuuga compound and visit Neji-kun and Hinata-chan."
"I don't believe it a good idea."
"Oh and you've been ready to go for a while now."
Sakura was making her way slowly to the Hyuuga compound before she was stopped by Izumo.
"Sakura-san Hokage-sama requests your presence." Said Izumo before disappearing in a puff of smoke.
"Great just great." Sakura mumbled to herself before poofing up to the Hokage tower.
"Shishou this better be pretty damn important I was…" Sakura stopped her rant when she noticed Tsunade looking depressed and a very confused Neji and Hinata.
"What's going on here?" Asked Sakura.
"Sakura, Neji, and Hinata I'm assigning you an S-Rank mission."
They were shocked to say the least, an S-Rank that's crazy. What was Tsunade thinking?
"I bet you're wondering why I would give an S-Rank to two Chuunin and a Jounin. Well two reasons are that you're the only ones available and you are also the only ones that I know can keep a level head during this mission. For now I need you to gather you're essentials, only the essentials, and meet back here in an hour."
"Hai." And with that the three quickly left the office to go pack the essentials.
"Sakura-chan what do you think the mission is?" Asked Hinata whos time with Naruto had helped her lose her stutter.
"I honestly don't know."
Neji just stayed silent.HOKAGE TOWER
"Tsunade-sama could you now explain the details of the mission now?" Asked an impatient Neji.
"Yes, of course. You see the mission I am assigning you three is not going to be very easy as you all could probably infer. What I expect you to do during this mission is…is to go back in time and stop the Akatsuki, Orochimaru, and to prevent Sasuke from leaving this village."
"Are you serious!?" Yelled a shocked Sakura.
"It does seem rather far-fetched Tsunade-sama."
Neji nodded in agreement.
Tsunade sighed heavily "Yes I am serious and I have already informed your families about this mission and they wish you the best of luck."
"It seems we have no choice." Said Neji with a smirk.
"It would seem so Nii-san."
"So lets get going already, after all it would be fun to see everyone as kids again."
"Now that's what I want to hear, but first things first Sakura I want you take this." Said Tsunade.
"Yes, you can use this to keep in contact with me, the future me. And Sakura I have one more thing I want to give you." Said Tsunade before placing a beautiful pink necklace around Sakura's neck."
"Shishou I-I can't except this."
"When my mother gave me this necklace she had me promise to pass it on to my daughter, and I told her I would. I've lost so much in my life as you know well I've lost a brother, my one love, my hopes and dreams, and the chance to ever become a mother. But, Sakura in the years that I've spent training you I have come to stop thinking of you as an apprentice and more like the daughter that I never had, but always wanted. And for that reason I decided to give you this necklace." Tsunade said with smile and eyes that clearly said 'you better accept this necklace after that lousy yet true speech'.
Sakura just responded by crying and hugging her poor surrogate mother.
Neji and Hinata just smiled at the scene set before them.
Once the hugging was done Tsunade regained her composure and then walked over to her desk to grab The Forbidden Scroll of Time.
"Here we go" Tsunade said before biting her thumb and opening the scroll.
"TIME TRAVEL NO JUTSU!"
The three young shinobi were in shock, a big spiraling portal was now in front of them.
"Hurry go now this jutsu consumes a lot of chakra!" Yelled Tsunade.
"Shall we?" Asked Neji.
Then the three shinobi joined hands before jumping into the portal ready to face whatever awaited them on the other side.
I know I know it was horrible I can't write first chapters :'( sobsob
And sorry I didn't clarify but Sakura and Neji are going out.
And Hinata is at the moment (HINTHINT) only friends with Naruto.
Why did I choose these three well most of the shinobi are either in the hospital or extremely busy and it gives Hinata a chance to prove that she is not weak to her father.
I should be writing "The Trouble With Family" right now AND I AM it's just not finished yet. Heh heh
