Story Notes: 1st person P.O.V. from five kids. Heavy use of child vernacular. Words are pronounced as they are seen. If there is any confusion between the switches of P.O.V, please, please let me know via comment. I would love feedback from the readers. Here's the way to tell them apart: Naruto has the worst grammar, Sasuke is always taking about his mother, Choji uses "w's" in his words, Shika is always saying "damn" and finding the shortest way to say things, and Neji is very polite and is the only one who calls his father, "Chichiwe".
If it weren't for that day, when all that happened… All the simplistic stupidities that were made, then most likely all the events that followed so many years later would have never occurred the way that they did. This, I say, is true…
This is How We Met
-Prelude to NSSCN-
~ I love Papa; I love Okasan ~
Holdin' my papa's hand tigh, we walked outta da carriage an ended up at sumbody's house. A large Uchiwa fan pantie da front to dis biiig house.
"We're here, Naruto."
Papa gave me one offa dem large chezzy smiles offa his, an I cheezed back, cuz ya know, he wuz cool like dat. And I wannie to be jus like him. I sawed dem doors open real wide an inside der wus more houses an stuff.
"This is the Uchiha estate," das wha Papa said. Papa wus really tall so he took long steps, an I hadda run but I never let go his hand. We were inside an da peoples dat opened dem doors were showing us around and stuff. I still didn' know why we wus her but den, Papa explainie to me.
"Okay Naruto, I was invited here to a small get together with some of my old friends. It's a grown-up thing, so I'm going to leave you with Mrs. Uchiha." Papa cheezed again, "You can play with Sasuke? Both of you met in the palace once remember?"
"No, I don member," I cross my arms cuz I didn kno dat Sasukay he wuz talkin bout.
"Alright, it's understandable, it was only a brief introduction that time," he look opher at me, "But you'll get to know him very well, and you'll play together, both of you are the same age. Did you know that?"
I really love Papa. I really wanna be jus like him. We had them peoples showed us to where Miss. Uchiwa wus.
I can smell it. It smelled so good. Okasan always, always makes the food. And the food always, always smells good. I wanted to go outside. I want to play with Tachi-nii.
"Come here, Baby," Okasan took my sleeve of her kimimono and she wiped my face. I didn't want to. I wanted to go and play. I wrinkled my nose. Okasan laughed.
"There, all done," Okasan smiled. She was really pretty. I really love Okasan. I really want to always be wherever Okasan would be. Because, Okasan always, always makes me feel safe, so I smile back.
"Greetings, good morning!" I turn around. It was a tall man with sun hair. It was like the sun because it was round and it had spikes coming out of it from everywheres.
"Namikaze-dono, you came. My husband was worried that you couldn't make it," I saw that there was another Namikaze next to the big Namikaze. He had sun hair too, and blue eyes too. He was looking at me and I looked back. I was scared. I didn't know who he was. I saw him before, I rememor. I hid behind Otosan that time.
"Aww, jeez—even for a get-together, they're still worried about punctuality, man!" I saw him scratch his head. The little Namikaze was still looking at me. I hid inside Okasan's kimimono.
"Oh is that Naruto?" How cute, he appears to be a very saucy devious child! How old is he?"
"Heh-heh! He's four years old, he'll be five in October." The big Namikaze sounded very proud.
"Oh, Baby just turned five just few days ago."
"Ah, I see, born in the heat of July!"
"Oh stop it…"
"Well I better get going, I'll leave Naruto to you, is that okay?"
"Of course, he can spend some time with Baby. The other boys are playing with the girls."
"Oh, they brought their tikes here too?"
"Yes," I can feel Okasan smile. She always, always gave this smiling feeling and I felt it. It was all warm and fuzzy."
"You have a lovely smile, Mrs. Uchiha."
"Oh stop it you!!!"
I wus jus standin an standin. Papa had growned up stuff, so I get dat. He jus gotta do wha he needs ta do. He lef an I wus jus standin der.
"Go on, Baby," I sawed Miss Uchiwa pullin out Sasukay frum unda her kimi clothes. Man, I'm bored I wanna play!
