A.N. Hello people this is my first Naruto Story so be gentle NO FLAMES PLEASE!

Okay I'll give you a little background so Sakura left the village when she was 12 right after the mission at the Hidden Mist Village because she had always been called weak, pushed around by her dad while her mom sits on the side lines not doing anything, lastly she couldn't help her teammates again like always and yeah she hated it.

Lastly: Sasuke might be an occ in some chappies

Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto if I did Kakashi and Sakura forever!

Inner Talking


Chapter 1

Sakura's Pov:

"Hm… a few more, then I'll be home." I thought as I jumped from branch to branch.

Hi! My name is Sakura Haruno; I'm 16 years old with pink hair and green eyes. Over the years I've been training outside of the village. Tsunade was one of my mentors the others were Jiraiya and Orochimaru, until I killed the ugly snake. That's enough for now I suppose.

I stopped at Konoha's gate.

"Name please," the anbu said.

"Sakura Haruno," I replied taking off my mask.

"Very well please report to the Hokage mansion."

"Alright," I said putting my mask back on and disappearing in a cloud of cherry blossom petals, but only to reappear in front of the Hokage's bedroom door.

I knocked and heard a woman's voice which I recognized.


"It's me Sakura"

Tsunade opened the door smiling. I sweatdropped at my mentor's mood swings.

End of Pov

"Saki-chan, how long has it been?" Tsunade said pulling Sakura in the room.

"I don't know three years? And how come you've never told me that you're the new hokage?"

"Like you said we haven't seen each other for three years," Tsunade chuckled.

"Right, but I do need a place to stay." Sakura said.

"Oh, but who would be awake at this time?" Tsunade muttered thoughtfully.

"But I can just live at my parent's house, until I found an apartment I'm sure they won't mind."

"Saki-chan, you can't remember your dad's going to hurt you like before."

"Sighs its okay I'm much stronger now."

"Um…Sakura are you sure?" Tsunade said frowning at her.

"Yes, baa-chan I'll be fine I'm much stronger than before." Sakura assured her.

"Okay, but if you have any problems all of your friends are here, especially me."

"Alright," she said.

"Oh Sakura before you leave I've already discussed it with the elders that you are promoted to jonin and your first mission is an A-rank…" Tsunade explained but cut off by Sakura's groan.

"Why? I just got back and you already give me I mission." Sakura whined.

"But, Sakura your mission is to be with Team Seven again."

Sakura blinked trying to process the information Tsunade just said.

"Oh, hehehe okay then I suppose my mission will start tomorrow?"

"Yes, now go and get some sleep because you're going to meet them by the memorial stone."

"Alright, but how come I thought Naruto and Sasuke will be anbu by now." Sakura commented.

"About that you see when you were gone Sasuke left to go to Orochimaru, while Naruto trained to bring him back with Jiraiya. They both missed the chunin exams and well we have no information about Orochimaru." Tsunade admitted.

"Right about that I killed him." Sakura scratched her head nervously.

"Oh well you better get going then."

"Hai," she said as she disappeared in cloud of cherry blossoms.

Tsunade sighed and yelled, "SHIZUNE WHERE'S MY SAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

With Sakura:

She arrived at her parent's house; she opened the door and saw every thing was still in place and the same.

"So much bad memories in this place."

"Well, Saki-chan I have a bad feeling about this I don't think we should stay here."

"Well we have no choice until we find an apartment but right now we have to deal with it."

Somewhere on the way to Konoha:

Two jonins with the leaf protector are heading back. One woman and one man.

"You know we still have a week before we reach the village." The man said.

"Yes, I know."

Back in the village:

The next morning Sakura woke up in the sound of her alarm clock. It was around 7:00 am and she was suppose to meet her team in about an hour, but she knew Kakashi would be late so she walked in the shower, but to only come out after thirty minutes. She put on a green long sleeve shirt, pants, black heels (like the one in the shippuden), her head band, and finally her newly acquired jonin vest on top. She looks at the clock and realizes that it was 8:30.

She ran to the training area, when she arrived she saw three people and recognized them as Sasuke, Naruto and Kakashi.

"Kakashi-sensei, I thought we're going to train?" whined Naruto.

"Yes, I know but we have to wait for another jonin."

"Che, another late sensei," Sasuke muttered irritably.

"What's that supposed to mean." Kakashi muttered.

Sakura came down from the three and said, "Long time no see." The three boys looked at her dumbfounded.

"Is that how you treat your old teammate?" Sakura frowned.

"SAKURA-CHAN!" Naruto yelled.

"No that can't be Sakura; Sakura that we know had a flat chest, no curves, and was small." Kakashi muttered, while Sasuke just nodded.

"What did you say Kaka-sensei?" Sakura glared at him cracking her fingers.

"That…" Poor Kakashi never finished his sentence because Sakura had punched him on the face making him fly at least 300 yards away.

"That's definitely Sakura." Sasuke thought.
