(I saw this picture on photobucket and it gave me this idea for a one shot... So here it is... )

It was another boring summer day at the boring orphanage in the boring town of Konoha. My name is Naruto Uzumaki. I'm blonde, blue-eyed, sixteen years old, and slightly athletic... I live in an orphanage. I've had so many interviews and I've wondered why no one wants to adopt me... Maybe it's the whiskers on my cheeks, or maybe the fact when I get upset or angry my eyes turn red... Maybe it's the strange symbolic birthmark on my stomach.

"Naruto! Get down here! Make sure you're dressed!" came Kakashi's voice. He was one of the orphanage helpers, along with Iruka, Azuma, Kurenai, and Anko.

I growled, "Why should I!?" I snapped, standing from my bed and pulling my black jeans on over my boxers and a bright orange shirt over my black wife beater, along with my bright orange Converse.

"Just get down here Uzumaki!" Kakashi yelled.

I sighed and ran down the stairs, only to be met my a man and a woman. I looked at them oddly.

"And this is the last one that fits what you're looking for..." said Kakashi as I stood next to Konohamaru, Sasuke, Neji, and Gaara.

"Well then, considering out choices, he seems to be the best choice," the woman smiled. She had blonde hair and golden brown eyes. She looked at the man beside her, "Jiraiya? What do you think?" she smiled.

The man, he had white hair and odd red markings on his face. "Well Tsunade, he seems to be a healthy kid. I g-"

"Teenager..." I growled, looking up at them with bright blue eyes.

Jiraiya laughed, "I love this kid, he's perfect!" he said, smiling.

I looked at him like he was insane, and too me, he kinda was.

Kakashi and Iruka smiled, "You heard them, go get your stuff together!"

A smile slowly crept onto my face and I jumped in the air. "Sweet!!" I exclaimed, hugging Tsunade and Jiraiya and ran up to my room, throwing my black and orange clothes into my orange suitcase.

I was thrilled, confused, but thrilled! Finally! After years and years of interviews, I was getting adopted! Finally!! I was so excited, I tripped and flipped down the stairs, but stood abruptly back to my feet, 


Tsunade and Jiraiya looked at me oddly and then laughed, "Let's go Naruto-kun," Tsunade said, motioning me to follow her and Jiraiya out of the door.

This was the start of my new life.

(I'm happy with this one for the most part... )
