A/N: Hey all! So this is my very first fanfic I've ever written, so be easy! Um I voted it mature because of language and adult themes but they're not too bad. Um... anyways any advice would be appreciated and I know the epilogue is short, but I'm posting chapter 1 right after this so go read that one too!

The Love Story of Naruto and Sakura

By. Jessica Goble

Prologue

Iruka-sensei stood among the new genin of Konoha, they had just graduated. Standing along with him was four sets of teams. Naruto Uzumaki and Sakura Haruno was one team. Along with Kiba and Hinata as another team, Shikamaru and Ino was another team, and the last team consisted of Shino and Rock Lee.

"Alright class these will be your team leaders for the rest of your time as a ninja." He said introducing them. "Now as I call your names, please introduce yourself and form your new team."

"Hey Sakura, why exactly do we have to be babysitters for these brats?" Naruto asked as he leaned over to whisper in her ear. "I mean… aren't jonin like Kakashi-sensei supposed to take care of the genin?"

Sakura rolled her eyes and leaned over. "Lady Tsunade told you already! We're having a shortage of jonin, all of the other jonin are on missions so their assigning lower ranking ninjas to work as team leaders."

Naruto crossed his arm, pouting. "I don't get it why I was assigned this position, I'm only a genin!"

Sakura shook her head. "Lady Tsunade obviously saw your potential as a team leader and decided to bend the rules to let you join with all the chuunin."

Naruto seemed to brighten. "Well, maybe this won't be as bad as I made it out to be, at least Granny Tsunade put us on a team!" he said, nudging her with his elbow, suggestively.

"This is serious business, Naruto." Sakura said, sighing. "You can't be fooling around like usual…"

"Mika, Kasumi, and Kenji, you are assigned to Naruto-sensei and Sakura-sensei's team." Iruka said, smiling proudly over at Naruto.

"Naruto-sensei? I think I like the sound of that!" Naruto said, smiling.

"What do you think?" Sakura asked Naruto as the three genin approached them.

"They're really green, but we can show them the ropes!" he said, smiling widely.

A/N: So this was essentially just an introduction to all of the characters, go read chapter 1 for better stuff!!
