Chapter 1

*Naru's POV*

Naru Uzumaki was nineteen years old. She was a college student at the University of Konoha. That was only one part of her life though. Naru had split her life into two separate parts. The first part of her life was being a college student. The second part of her life was working at one of the best bars in Konoha as a waitress and a singer. To keep the two parts of her life separate, Naru didn't use her real name at the bar. She used the nickname the owner of the bar gave her. That nickname was Kyuubi.

She was nicknamed Kyuubi because when she got angry, she was supposedly more fierce than the nine-tailed demon fox in the famous Konoha legend. That was what Jiraiya, the owner of the bar and her godfather, told her. Yes, Naru's boss was also her godfather. That allowed her to insult her pervert of a boss and get away with it. To keep people from figuring out she was Kyuubi, Naru's appearance was very different when she wasn't at the bar.

When she was Naru, she wore a black long-sleeved shirt, a baggy black hoodie, a pair of baggy black sweatpants, and a pair of black sneakers. Her choice of clothing kept her appearance completely hidden. Her face was even hidden because of the shadow from the hood. Naru had started hiding what she really looked like right before she started high school. She did this for personal reasons.

During high school, Naru was constantly picked on because of her wardrobe. All of her high school classmates assumed that she was fat and ugly because she refused to show what she really looked like. This caused everyone that went to high school with Naru to insult her. The three people that picked on Naru the most were Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, and Ino Yamanaka. Naru's four years of high school went by with her getting insulted every single day by everyone she knew. She also got good grades though. She had the second highest grade point average of her graduating class. The only one with better grades than her was the lazy genius, Shikamaru Nara.

If you think people stopped picking on Naru once she was out of high school, you would be wrong. When she applied to the University of Konoha, she got accepted easily because of her good grades and the reference letters written by her teachers. Unfortunately for her, Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, and Ino Yamanaka also got accepted. Naru could have applied to a better college like Harvard, Yale, or some other Ivy League university, but she wanted to stay in Konoha. She didn't want to leave the place she had always called her home. Naru had also just gotten used to spending time with her godparents. She hadn't met her godfather and godmother until she turned sixteen. They had traveled around until they finally settled down in Konoha again. When they heard about their goddaughter, they looked Naru up and they have been making up for lost time ever since.

The fact that the three people that picked on her the most during high school were going to the same college as she was didn't bother Naru that much. After all, it was a big school. The likelihood that they would all be taking the same classes was very slim. Unfortunately for Naru, luck was not on her side. All three of them were put in most of her classes. She only had one class without them. It seemed that Naru was destined to be picked on by those three forever. As always though, Naru didn't let it get to her.

Soon after she started college, Jiraiya told her that he was going to open a bar. He offered her a job as a waitress. Naru figured it would be a good way to earn some extra spending money. After all, college isn't cheap. Jiraiya did insist that Naru wear clothes that actually fit and that she stopped hiding what she looked like. Naru agreed to wear clothes that fit while she was working at the bar. When she wasn't working, she would still wear her dark oversized clothing. Jiraiya took the compromise. Ideally, he wanted her to burn her oversized clothes, but he decided to take what he could get.

Jiraiya's wife and Naru's godmother, Tsunade, was very supportive of Jiraiya opening a bar. When Naru asked why she was so supportive, Tsunade told her anything was better than those perverted books Jiraiya insisted on writing. The books Tsunade was referring to is the Icha Icha Paradise series. Icha Icha Paradise was actually a cross between a graphic novel and a regular book. Jiraiya was the author of those perverted books that were every pervert in Konoha's dream come true. Jiraiya actually made plenty of money just from writing those books, but he decided that opening a bar would keep him busy when he wasn't writing. It would also give Tsunade access to sake that wasn't overpriced. Tsunade was addicted to sake. Naru had come to learn this very quickly after she met her godmother for the first time. She had some interesting godparents. One was a self-proclaimed super pervert that wrote the books that all the perverts in Konoha loved and the other was an extremely strong woman that loved to gamble and drink sake. Unfortunately for Tsunade, she sucked at gambling. Jiraiya told Naru that Tsunade was known as the Legendary Sucker in Las Vegas.

The Sanctuary opened soon after Naru started college. When Naru asked Jiraiya why he chose to call his bar The Sanctuary, he told her that he wanted the bar to be more than a place that people just got drunk at. He wanted it to be a place where people could be comfortable and forget their problems for a little while. He wanted it to be a sanctuary from the real world and all the problems people had. Naru decided to help Jiraiya make this bar a sanctuary for people to relax and enjoy themselves in. Naru even planned to make the bar her own sanctuary.

On opening night, Jiraiya was shocked when Naru showed up for work. She was wearing clothes that actually fit and she was not trying to hide what she really looked like. Naru was 5'4" tall. She had wavy golden blonde hair that went down to her waist and deep blue eyes that seemed to be able to see right into your soul. That first night, she wore a dark gray t-shirt, a pair of black pants that fit her perfectly, and a pair of black ankle boots that had three inch heels. She also had a black waitress apron tied around her waist. On the apron's right pocket, her nickname, Kyuubi, was embroidered in white letters. On the apron's left pocket, a small white nine-tailed fox was embroidered. Naru also had pens and a notepad to write down orders. Jiraiya and Tsunade were behind the bar and a man named Teuchi Ichiraku was in the back to make food for anyone who wanted something to eat with their alcohol.

When Jiraiya and Tsunade saw their goddaughter, they rushed at her and gave her a bone crushing hug. They then had Teuchi take a family picture to mark their first day of business. Their first night open was very slow. Only a few people came in, but they left soon after. Jiraiya decided that the bar would need entertainment. He bought some music equipment from an old karaoke bar. He decided that he would buy more karaoke tracks for a singer once he hired one. He would also by songs that had lyrics to use until he hired a singer, or for when the singer had the night off or needed a break. Jiraiya also made a small stage and moved the tables, so there was a small area to dance if people wanted to.

After Jiraiya added entertainment, the bar began to get more customers. Jiraiya had held auditions for a singer, but nobody seemed to fit in. That was until one night, someone decided to dare Naru to sing a song. Of course, Naru refused, but everyone in the bar kept bugging her. Then, someone bet Jiraiya one hundred dollars that Naru would never sing in his bar. Jiraiya bet that she would sing. After that, Jiraiya practically begged Naru to sing one song so he didn't lose one hundred dollars. Eventually, after being bugged for awhile, Naru agreed to sing one song. The same guy that bet Jiraiya that Naru wouldn't sing bet him double or nothing that Naru would be tone deaf. Jiraiya took that bet saying that Naru would sing wonderfully.

Jiraiya had never heard Naru sing, so he was going on faith that his goddaughter was a good singer. He knew it would be better to lose two hundred dollars, than to face Naru's wrath because he didn't believe in her. Naru took off her waitress apron and sat it on the bar. She then walked onto the small stage and turned the karaoke equipment and the microphone on. She then looked at the karaoke tracks they had and picked one out. She put it in and walked to the microphone and said "The song I picked is Here to Stay by Christina Aguilera. It reminds me of how I am when I am my true self." She then pressed play.

Hey Yeah Yeah

Whoa Yeah

Whoa Oh Yeah

Well everybody got an opinion now, don't they?

But it ain't no thing to me

It really don't make any difference now to me

If you don't like what you see

I pay no mind to the negative kind

'Cause that's just no way to be

I don't stop to please someone else's needs

Gonna live my life for me

I'm gonna keep going

I'm a do my own thing

We all got a song that we're meant to sing

And no matter what people say or might think

I ain't going no place

No, I'm here to stay

Gonna keep on doing my thing

'Cause whether they love or they hating on me

I'll still be the same girl I used to be

'Cause I ain't going no place

No, I'm here to stay

Oh Yeah

I'm here to stay

Oh Yeah

I'm here to stay

I've never been the type to be shy

I know that some would say I'm too headstrong

But I'd rather be a woman who voices her mind

Whether you think I'm right or wrong

And I know some people want to criticize

Makes 'em feel better about themselves

So say what you will

Time will reveal

In the end that I will be here still

I'm gonna keep on

I'm a do my own thing

We all got a song that we're meant to sing

And no matter what people say or might think

I ain't going no place

No, I'm here to stay

Gonna keep on doing my thing

'Cause whether they love or they hating on me

I'll still be the same girl I used to be

'Cause I ain't going no place

No, I'm here to stay

Gotta get up

Keep my head up

Gonna keep on turning it up

Never let up

If I keep stepping it up

I'm a prove it

I'm never gonna be stopped

Like it or not

Gotta get up

Keep my head up

Gonna keep on turning it up

Never let up

If I keep stepping it up

I'm a prove it

I'm never gonna be stopped

Like it or not

No matter the pressures that face me

I believe, I believe they will see

I'll never let anyone break me

All your doubt can do now is strengthen me

And life, it ain't always that easy

Gotta fight to see past the boundaries

Crossing the line I will define

Every time that forever is mine

I'm gonna keep on

I'm a do my own thing

We all got a song that we're meant to sing

And no matter what people say or might think

I ain't going no place

No, I'm here to stay

Gonna keep on doing my thing

'Cause whether they love or they hating on me

I'll still be the same girl I used to be

'Cause I ain't going no place

No, I'm here to stay

I'm gonna keep on

I'm a do my own thing

We all got a song that we're meant to sing

And no matter what people say or might think

I ain't going no place

No, I'm here to stay

Gonna keep on doing my thing

'Cause whether they love or they hating on me

I'll still be the same girl I used to be

'Cause I ain't going no place

No, I'm here to stay

After the song ended, Naru turned everything off and walked back over to the bar. She had just finished tying her apron around her waist again when she heard clapping. She turned around and saw everyone in the bar clapping for her. Naru then looked at Jiraiya and saw that he was clapping too. He then told Naru that she was amazing and from now on, she was going to be a waitress and a singer at this bar. Jiraiya also won the bet and got his two hundred dollars.

That is how Naru got to where she is now. The Sanctuary is now one of the best bars in Konoha. Jiraiya, Tsunade, and all the regulars insist that it is because of her singing that The Sanctuary is so popular. She always tells them that she is only one person and that she is only a small part of why The Sanctuary is so popular. She also now lives in a nice-sized two bedroom apartment. After she started singing, her paycheck from the bar got larger, so she had enough to move into a nicer place. She is currently passing all of her college courses easily. All in all, Naru's life is going great if you don't pay attention to all the insults. She only hoped that she could continue to keep her two lives separate.
