Okay, I've been noticing that some people are still, for some odd reason, adding this story to their alerts and/or are "eagerly looking forward to the next chapter".
"Finally" is over, done, finished, complete, ended. There will be no next chapter.
There will not be a sequel. I'm struggling with my sequel to "Innocence" already.
I am aware that at the beginning of chapter 21 I mentioned something about me and my friends writing a massive story.
Unfortunately all three of us have lost significant amounts of interest in Naruto, and therefore none of us are going to be writing our huge massive project stories.
I apologize for any misunderstandings, but please be understanding to the fact that I pretty much have lost most if not all my interest in Naruto.
