Tsunade held back a groan as she looked in front of her. Naruto, Sakura, Sai and Kakashi all stood in front of her. Naruto was beaten to a bloody pulp but had this freaked out look on his face as he kept glancing to Kakashi. Sakura had an innocent smile on herface, meaning that SHE was the reason Naruto was in his current condition. Sai and Kakashi merely stood smiling.

"Grandma, can we hurry this up? I wanna get a mission and go already." Naruto sighed, not letting Kakashi out of his sight.

Tsunade began to rub her forehead, a sign to Sakura that she was getting a headache. She readied herself to slap Naruto if he yelled.

Tsunade took a deep breath. "Actually Naruto, I already have a mission selected for you." She pulled out three scrolls. Tossing one to Kakashi she explained, "Kakashi, Sakura and Sai. Since all of you are Chunin and above I'm giving you a C-ranked escort mission. We have a merchant who has recently been trading in our area and has apparently had great success. He has contacted a friend of his and your job is to get him and bring him back to the Leaf Village safely."

Kakashi nodded before raising an eyebrow at Naruto's sparkling eyes. 'I CAN EAT RAMEN AGAIN!'

Kakashi chuckled, making Naruto give him 'the look'. 'Ah Naruto. Did you not think I already had planned for this?'

Naruto quickly turned back to Tsunade.

"Wait a minute Grandma Tsunade, what's MY mission?"

Tsunade nodded. "Naruto, you too have an escort mission, although B in rank. Actually, two of them." She said tossing him two scrolls.

"WHAT?" Naruto and Sakura shouted, Naruto barely catching the scrolls.

Tsunade squeazed her forehead at the migrane she was getting. "Yes, two. I have had both of the clients ask for YOU specifically to give them a tour of the village. Do not ask WHO. You'll see them soon enough." She added after Naruto opened his mouth and lifted a hand.

"Fine..." Naruto grumbled as he folded his arms over each other.


Team Kakashi left before Tsunade made her hand glow green. Pressing her glowing palm to her forehead, she could feel her headache disappearing. Smiling, as the headache was now gone, she opened up a nearby drawer, a bottle of sake hidden inside.

"Now that my headache's gone, it's time for another drink." She laughed as she threw her head back, taking a large swig of the alchoholic beverage.

Naruto walked down the stairway, wondering who he would be giving the tours to.

'It's probably gonna be some drunk, smelly wierdos. Man, why does my life suck like that?' Naruto thought as his shoulders slumped.

"So, tiny dick, who do you think you'll be giving the tours to?" Sai asked as they walked into the foyer of the room, a smile still on his face.

"DAMMIT SAI! I TOLD YOU NOT TO CALL ME THAT!" Naruto shouted, announcing his prescence to the room.

"NARUTO..." Sakura growled as she cracked her fist.

"Ah! Naruto-kun!"

The group turned to see something they definitely were not expecting.

"Koyuki-hime! Shion-chan!" Naruto beamed as he saw the two walking up to him.

"Hello Naruto-kun. It's been quite awhile hasn't it?" Shion said smiling, glaring dangerously at the woman next to her.

"Yes, it has been MUCh too long!" Koyuki said, her smile focused on Naruto but her eyes narrowed at the shorter blonde next to her.

Sakura and Kakashi could have sworn they had seen live electricity travelling between the priestess and the princess's eyes, while Naruto and Sai continued to smile, completely oblivious to what was going on.

"Um...you two wouldn't happen to be the ones who had asked for the tours were you?" Sakura asked hesitantly. If Naruto was to be their escort, he was doomed. Sakura could still hear Shion's request to Naruto in her head. Her hand twitched slightly at the return of the memory.

"Why yes! That was me, er...us." Shion faltered slightly.

"All right! Well, let's get started! I'll show you two some of the best places in town!" Naruto smiled, quickly grabbing each of his clients hands and pulling them towards the door. He almost missed it, but Kakashi caught Naruto's glance/evil grin combo. As they disappeared, Kakashi smiled.

'Well, he'll find out soon enough.' "All right team, shall we head out?"

Naruto grinned as he pulled the girls around town, pointing to random objects and scenes of the leaf village and talking a little about them. He wasn't that good at giving tours, but he was away from Kakashi, which meant he could eat some breakfast soon! Unbeknownst to Naruto however was the fact that since he started the tour he had yet to actually tell neither Koyuki nor Shion anything. Since the moment they made physical contact with the blonde, the hidden seals had activated, making the two females hormone levels rise. Not by alot, but enough so that they couldn't think clearly and were basically in a great big haze. However there was that small moment when they had heard 'shopping district'.

"And finally, the greatest viewing platform of them all...The Hokage mountain summit!" Naruto smiled as he finally let go of his two clients' hands.

The physical contact broken, Koyuki and Shion finally were able to think clearly, and finally realized where they were at. Sure, they had heard the words 'Hokage Mountain Summit' but were not expecting to be on TOP of said mountain. With a loud shriek, the two clung to the nearest moving thing. Namely, each other. Naruto turned around to see the two pale and clinging to each other for dear life.

"What?" Naruto asked innocently.

"Ummm...i-it's nothing Naruto-kun." Shion said shakily. Koyuki was shaking too much to speak. She never was one for heights.

"Well, that's the tour!" Naruto smiled.

The two escortees suddenly realized their striking moment had come and gone. As Naruto led the two back to the village Shion had a sour look on her face.

'DAMMIT! That wasn't how it was supposed to work!' Images of the two in a secluded spot in the forest appeared in her mind. The imaginitive Naruto grinned hungrily as he watched her beginning to undress. He moved towards her before starting a passionate kiss, his hands letting no space in-between their bodies as he slid his tongue into her mouth. Their tongues had barely gone against each other before Shion had submit to Naruto's tongue revelling in the warmth of it. Unsurprisingly, it tasted like ramen.

Koyuki pouted as she walked behind Naruto. 'I can't believe I lost my chance!' Her mind drifted to an imaginitive clearing in a forest, Naruto underneath her, captivated by her naked beauty. 'Shhh, Naruto-kun. Let me show you how it's done.' She whispered softly. Koyuki gently lifted Naruto's hand to her right breast. He shivered upon the contact, but soon was kneading the older woman's chest with expertise. Grinning at his quick adaptability, Koyuki attacked his mouth, fighting for dominance with Naruto's tongue.

In reality, Naruto could hear some soft moaning behind him, and when he turned around, he saw both Koyuki and Shion, their eyes barely open and their mouths moving around. He wondered what in the world they were doing, but ignored it. Whatever they were doing, it obviously didn't have anything to do with him.

Kenta: A short chapter over a long break is really annoying, I know, and I apologize. However, I just wanted to let people know that I have not given up on ANY of my old stories, and still plan to finish all of them. I just need to rethink and reorganize everything. Besides, it's better to get a little more of a story than just getting a note or something and crush all of your hopes.

Hinata will be coming up soon, don't worry. And for those of you who keep wondering what Kakashi has planned...you'll find out in due time.

Thank you all of you guys who were waiting for this story to come back to life, and thank those of you who are new and excited about this story. I hope to keep a decent timing for updates, but we'll see what happens.

Merry Christmas!

Kenta Raikiri
