Naruto's Breaking Point

No I don't own Naruto

Chapter seven

It had been five days since Naruto and Hinata had returned to the village. Hinata had taken up her former job as assistant teacher at the academy. Naruto had done nothing but hang around Hinata, be it at the academy or otherwise. The two had been spending all their time with one another. They also spent a great deal of time with Sora as well. Naruto had given Sora a few scrolls to study, one of them being sealing arts, while another was the Rasengan.

Naruto sat in a tree on the academy grounds looking into the room Hinata was teaching. Hinata looked so happy just sitting there teaching the young shinobi. When Hinata was happy, Naruto was happy, as she was everything to him now.

Naruto's friends came to visit the mansion when they could and everything seemed to be back the way it was before he left. Even Konohamaru was begging him to train him like old times. Odd how everything goes back to the way it was. That's the thought Naruto had on his mind when he looked at how things were now. There was only one thing that was really different about things now. That one thing was Sakura; she had yet to confront Naruto. Of course, Naruto knew why she was avoiding him. He was glad she was avoiding him, as he never wanted to speak with her again. If they did speak, Naruto would have some rather unpleasant things to say to her.

Today was the day the Kages from the Sand and Mist villages would be arriving. Naruto was actually looking forward to seeing Gaara again after such a long time.

Naruto's attention turned to the door of the academy. Hinata's class was coming out onto the academy grounds. Naruto smiled as Hinata came out right after her class. The class was preparing for a sparring session. Naruto smiled before disappearing from the tree and reappearing behind Hinata.

"Hey, Hina-chan. I've been waiting for you to come out," he said happily, wrapping his arms around her waist.

Hinata smiled. She had been waiting for Naruto to come see her. She spun around in Naruto's arms and kissed him. The two stood there in each other's arms making out. The students just stared at the two of them, a decent amount of the male students thinking it was gross.

"Would you two play kissy face somewhere else?" Sora asked, rather annoyed that they couldn't wait till class was over.

"Yes. I believe you might traumatize some of the male students."

Everyone turned to see a man with red hair and a tattoo of the kanji for 'Love' above his left eye. The students knew who the man was, but didn't understand what he was doing here.

Naruto and Hinata broke their kiss and looked to see Gaara, the current Kazekage. Naruto thought Gaara looked a good bit taller than the last time he had seen him.

"Yo, Gaara, what's up? I didn't expect you to come here," Naruto said, not letting go of Hinata, who seemed somewhat embarrassed. "Sorry, Hina-chan, but it seems like I have to go talk with Gaara. I'll see you later, alright?"

Hinata gave him a quick peck on the cheek. "Of course, Naruto-kun. Go have a chat with Gaara."

Naruto appeared next to Gaara, put an arm on his shoulder, and began to talk about the weather as the two walked off.

"Umm... Hinata-sensei, Why is it that Naruto talks with the Kazekage so informally?" asked one of Hinata's female students.

"The two of them are friends, and that's just how Naruto talks to his friends, regardless of rank or prestige. Also, Naruto is the only person to have beaten the Kazekage in a fight."

"Really?" the same student asked.

"They fought during the Sand and Sound invasion a little over five years ago. Although you won't find that information in any textbook. Now, pair up and get ready to start your sparring." Hinata watched them pair up and began their sparring session. She smiled as she watched Sora. Hinata sat down on a bench as she watched them spar. She had been feeling terrible all day, and she really didn't know why. Hinata felt bad enough that she just wanted to lie down and sleep. She intended to go get a checkup from Tsunade after she was done at the academy today.

Gaara and Naruto were walking down the street; Naruto was doing all the talking. Everyone was staring at the two of them as they walked down the street. Naruto was just chatting away about completely random things until Gaara spoke up.

"You looked happy with her," Gaara stated, cutting Naruto off mid-rant.

"Yeah, Hina-chan is awesome." An image of Hinata appeared in Naruto's mind. "I've never really loved anyone before, but she's the one," Naruto replied, a pleasant smile on his face.

Gaara was pleased to see his old friend act like he once had years ago. "It's good to see you smile again. From what I've heard, you weren't acting like your old self."

Naruto thought about what Gaara had said for a minute. "Yeah, well, I guess I was pretty cold and unapproachable for a time." Naruto changed the subject to Gaara instead of himself. "So... Gaara what about you? Found anyone special?" Naruto had a grin on his face as he awaited Gaara's answer. Naruto was surprised when Gaara smiled a little.

"I guess you haven't been keeping tabs on me, Naruto. If you had, you would know I was married already. My wife is currently two weeks pregnant with our first child."

Naruto just stared at Gaara for a moment. 'Huh... So Gaara is a married man? Never thought that would happen. And he's even got a kid on the way.' Naruto put his arm around Gaara's shoulder once again before speaking. "So what's her name? How did you two meet? And what are you going to name your kid?" Naruto began to barrage Gaara with questions.

"Her name is Matsuri. She was actually my apprentice at one point. About three years ago, we started dating, and last year we got married. And if it's a boy I wanted to name him Naruto, after you." Gaara answered Naruto's questions without hesitation. If it were anyone else, Gaara would most likely not have answered those questions so quickly, if at all.

Naruto really couldn't believe that. Gaara was going to name his son after himself? Naruto really couldn't understand why someone would want to name their child after him. "Really?" Naruto asked in disbelief. "Why? It's not that I'm complaining or anything. I just can't understand why you would want to."

"Because it felt appropriate," Gaara replied.

Naruto smiled. "Alright! This calls for drinks!" Naruto pumped his fist into the air and dragged Gaara off to the nearest bar.

"Naruto, I don't drink," Gaara said in protest as Naruto dragged him off.

"Nope! You're drinking, and that's that! The Kage meeting can wait!" Naruto stated as his grip on Gaara tightened on and dragged him inside of the bar.

Matsuri was walking around the village, trying to find her husband. She had heard Gaara had headed to the academy, so that's where she was currently walking to. Arriving at the front gates of the academy, she noticed the class that was currently sparring and a beautiful woman with long indigo sitting on a bench. Matsuri knew this woman to be Hinata Hyuga. She walked over and sat down next to Hinata.

"How have you been Matsuri?" Hinata asked. Hinata smiled pleasantly at her friend.

"Oh just fine. I'm pregnant, though," Matsuri replied with pride.

"Really? That's wonderful!" Hinata replied, she was happy for Matsuri. Hinata hugged Matsuri in congratulations on the soon to be new addition to her family.

Matsuri decided to ask about Gaara in a little bit, because it had been a while since she and Hinata had talked. "I hear Naruto's back, and you two are an item?" Matsuri asked teasingly.

Hinata blushed and played with her index fingers. She had gotten over her shyness, well, most of it, at least a few years ago, but when someone talked like that to her, she couldn't help it. "Yes. We've done it a few times, too, I guess," she replied nervously.

Matsuri smiled, "You can be so cute when you're embarrassed, Hinata." Matsuri began to giggle at Hinata. "Come on, Hinata! Tell me the details! It's your childhood fantasy come to life!"

Hinata smiled. Matsuri was right; it was her childhood dream. Hinata began to tell her all the dirty details of everything that had happened. The two sat there and chatted while the students finished their sparring and headed inside.

"Really? You got out of the shower then threw yourself on him?" Matsuri asked.

Hinata blushed at how Matsuri had bluntly put what she described to her. "Well, I wouldn't say I threw myself on him..." Hinata fidgeted. She was feeling really uncomfortable now.

Matsuri just smiled. "Well, enough girl talk. Do you happen to know where my husband is?" she asked.

"He and Naruto walked off a little while ago. I'll see if I can find them with my Byakugan." Hinata activated her Byakugan and proceeded to scan the village. She found them, alright, in a bar, drinking. "It seemed Naruto and Gaara are in a bar, drinking. Naruto probably dragged Gaara with him." Hinata stood up. "Let me go find someone to take my class so we can go get them."

"Sure." Matsuri sat there and watched as Hinata went inside the academy. She didn't have to wait long as Hinata came out minutes later. Matsuri stood up and the two of them walked off to retrieve what was theirs.

Hinata and Matsuri walked through the village to the bar. They chatted about what had happened lately. The subject turned to what they would name their kids. Hinata was pleasantly surprised when she heard Gaara wanted to name his first son after Naruto. They arrived at the bar. Gaara sat next to Naruto as they took shots.

"Come on Gaara! You've only had four, you lightweight!" Naruto said as he put down his eighth glass.

"I can't drink that much right now. I have meetings to go to, Naruto," Gaara replied, swaying back and forth on his seat. Gaara fell over and hit the ground.

Naruto just looked at Gaara and cracked up he fell backwards off his seat and hit the ground as well. Naruto opened his eyes to see the most beautiful thing he had ever seen. "Hi Hime!" Naruto stated while lying on the ground. Naruto quickly got up off the floor.

"Naruto, you're drunk." Hinata sounded somewhat amused.

"And you're sexy!" he said hugging her and burring his face into her chest. "I love my Hina-chan," he mumbled as he snuggled into her chest.

A light pink blush appeared on Hinata's face. "Then again, I guess you're not drunk," she stated.

Naruto let go of her and looked her in the eyes. "What gave me away?"

"Well, you weren't really acting all that drunk, just goofy, you should really try slurring your words next time," she replied with a small giggle.

Naruto pouted a little bit before the four of them exited the bar. An ANBU dropped down in front of them just as they exited the bar.

"Sorry, but if you're here to get Gaara, he's a little drunk at the moment. It will have to wait. Just tell Baachan the meeting will have to take place in a few hours, once it's out of his system."

The ANBU only nodded and disappeared without a word in reply.

Matsuri was helping Gaara walk, seeing as he couldn't walk straight to save his life at the moment. "I think this is the first time Gaara's ever had a drink before," Matsuri stated.

"Really? Sure is a lightweight when it comes to drinking, then. I mean, try drinking with Kakuzu sometime! That guy can sure put them away!" Naruto stated. Naruto walked with an arm around Hinata's waist holding her closely.

Hinata sighed happily. Both her arms were around Naruto as she walked. "So, how was your talk with Gaara, Naruto-kun?"

"He really has a lot more emotions now, unlike the last time I talked with him. Other than that, he really hasn't changed," Naruto replied.

They chatted as they walked down the street. The four of them weren't headed in any specific direction; they were just walking. The four at the moment looked like two normal couples walking down the street. The villagers would have thought the sight was cute if they didn't know who those people were.

Sakura was walking down the street; she had just gone to the store to pick up a few things. Sakura had been avoiding Naruto since she knew he was back. She would even go so far as to duck into alleyways and hide behind something to avoid him.

"Why won't you stop avoiding him and just talk to him?" Lee asked.

Sakura looked over at her boyfriend who was walking beside her back to their apartment. "Because I know he doesn't want to talk with me, Lee-kun, or even see me for that matter."

"I don't think..."

Sakura cut Lee off. "I love you; Lee-kun, but you don't always understand how long people can hold a grudge. What I said and did a little over five years ago was something he didn't deserve," Sakura explained.

They continued to walk until Sakura heard a familiar voice.

"Naruto-kun don't grab my butt in public!"

"AWW... Why not? You have a great butt and I just can't help myself!" Naruto thought about what Hinata had just said. "So, does that mean I can grab your butt in private?"

Hinata blushed, unable to answer that question in front of others. She knew Naruto was just doing this to embarrass her.

Sakura stood there, frozen in place as Naruto and Hinata came walking down the street With the Kazekage and his wife.

Naruto stopped teasing Hinata and looked at Sakura in front of him. His eyes narrowed dangerously at his former teammate. Naruto said nothing; he only glared daggers at her. Before Naruto did anything rash, he walked off, keeping Hinata next to him.

"Aren't you going to say 'hi' to your former teammate, Naruto?" Lee asked.

"What teammate? My teammates, as you call them, died a little over five years ago in my eyes. The only one left is my teacher, Kakashi," Naruto replied before walking off.

Matsuri and Gaara quickly followed Naruto and Hinata.

Sakura just stood there, head pointed at the ground. She was expecting a response like that, but it actually hurt more then she thought it would. "Let's just go home, Lee-kun," Sakura said sadly before walking in the direction of their apartment.

For once in his life, Lee didn't know how to respond. He would normally talk about youth or something like that, but right now, he couldn't even think of a single word to say. Lee caught up to Sakura and put an arm around her.

Tsunade and Mei were sitting in the Hokage's office, waiting on Gaara to arrive.

"I wonder where Gaara is? It's not like him to be late," Mei stated.

"I have a feeling he went to go chat with Naruto and they lost track of time," Tsunade replied. She pulled out a bottle of sake for the both of them. "So why not get a few drinks in while we wait?"

"Sounds like a plan!"

The two began to drink the contents of the bottle when an ANBU appeared in the room. He bent down and whispered something into Tsunade's ear. The ANBU disappeared right after delivering his message.

"Well it seems like Gaara beat us to drinking. Naruto dragged him along and got him drunk."

Mei just started laughing. She downed the sake that Tsunade gave her. "Tell me, are the rumors true that a single person destroyed that Kumo fortress about a week ago?"

"All true, Naruto was the one who did it. Hinata Hyuga was captured and Naruto went to save her."

"Really? Sounds like a romance story I read once."

Tsunade chuckled. "Yeah, it does, doesn't it? Well, the two are an item at the moment. I wouldn't doubt them getting married sometime soon."

"Wish I could find a man like that…" Mei mused as she drank some more sake.

"Yeah, well, a few years ago I finally realized I had one who had been my teammate for years. I just finally gave him a chance."

"Well screw his brains out have a kid and live happily ever after," Mei said bluntly with a perverted smile on her face.

Tsunade was taking a sip of her sake until she spit it all over the floor after hearing Mei. "I'm over fifty! I'm way too old to have a child!"

"Excuses, excuses," Mei replied taking another sip of sake. "If I ever found a man I wouldn't let him slip by me. Considering I'm a Kage it's hard to find one that honestly likes me for who I am and not the title and all."

Tsunade nodded her head in agreement. "Well, Naruto never had that problem since Hinata, the one he saved, has had a crush on him for years. I wish he would have realized her crush on him years ago, before he left the village."

Mei just shrugged. "At least she got her prize in the end. I wonder how he is in bed…" Mei mused as perverted thoughts filling her mind.

"I wish you wouldn't talk about my Godson like that, Mei."

Mei laughed. "Sorry, I can't always help myself."

Tsunade sighed and pulled a report out of her desk, she decided that was enough idle chitchat. "It seems they have pulled back all their forces for the time being."

Mei opened the file and read it over quickly. "Why though? It couldn't just be from one destroyed fortress." Mei looked at the pictures of what was left of the fortress. "Do you think they're planning a major offensive?"

"I have no idea. It doesn't make any sense at all, to be honest. My strategist can't make heads or tails of this current course of action."

Mei put down the file. "I suppose we will just have to wait and see what they're planning."

"That's exactly what my strategist said when I talked with him earlier about the matter."

"Well we can let everyone rest up. They've been constantly attacking the borders at random for a while now. However, they only recently declared war on the leaf and their allies."

"Yes, I know that, and it's a good thing we now have the Akatsuki to help us in this war."

The two Kages sat there and discussed what do, but they couldn't really come up with anything other than sit tight and see what they do. Tsunade and Mei headed to the hospital, seeing as Tsunade was still the head doctor and needed to make her rounds.

Naruto, Hinata, Matsuri, and Gaara had arrived back at the mansion. Naruto and Hinata were in the master bedroom on the couch. Naruto was still in a foul mood after seeing Sakura. Hinata was trying to get him in a better mood, but he was being difficult. Hinata was currently sitting on Naruto's lap her arms wrapped around his neck trying to talk with him.

"Naruto-kun, please stop being so upset. I don't like seeing you like this."

Naruto wrapped his arms around her waist and held her closer. "I'm sorry Hina-hime. I can forgive a lot of things, but right now I can't forgive her for what happened back then." Naruto noticed how much paler Hinata was right now. "Are you doing alright, Hina-chan? You look kind of pale."

Hinata curled up in Naruto's lap and laid her head down on his chest. "No, Naruto-kun. I don't feel all that well today. I planned on going to see Tsunade or someone at the hospital for a checkup after my class, but Matsuri wanted me to help find Gaara and I forgot all about it."

"Aren't you one of the best medics or something like that?" Naruto asked wondering why she just didn't diagnose her own problem.

"I guess, but I try not to treat myself. I prefer having someone else make the diagnosis just in case."

"Well then I'll take you to the hospital to get you checked out." Naruto picked Hinata up bridal style and walked out of the master bedroom. He walked down the stairs with Hinata in his arms. He saw Gaara passed out against Matsuri, who was talking with Konan. "Well, Gaara certainly looks comfortable."

"Well so does Hinata, it seems," Konan replied.

Hinata blushed and Matsuri giggled at the comment, then looked at Gaara and smiled.

"Well Hinata and I will be out for a little while. You'll be fine here Matsuri?"

"Of course. Gaara probably won't be up and about for another hour or so I think."

Naruto nodded and headed outside.

"Naruto-kun, I can walk on my own." Hinata said in a more assertive tone than normal.

Naruto sighed. "Fine," he stated before he reluctantly put Hinata down.

Hinata wrapped her arms around Naruto's right arm and the two walked off in the direction of the hospital. Hinata had an idea what was wrong with her, but she wanted a second opinion on the matter before she told Naruto. If it turned out that her suspicion was correct, she hoped Naruto would like the news as well. They made it to the hospital in about fifteen minutes since they walked there at a slow pace. The two of them ran into Tsunade, who agreed to check to see what was wrong with Hinata. Hinata and Naruto were both surprised when they saw the Mizukage following Tsunade around. Both Naruto and Hinata waited in one of the vacant rooms as they waited for the test results. Naruto had no idea what tests were being run, as he didn't bother to ask.

Naruto sat next to Hinata on the bed as they waited. He looked at Hinata. She seemed to be happy, as there was a pleasant smile on his face. Naruto wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her close. She let out a cute little squeak-like noise because she wasn't paying attention and was startled by Naruto's actions.

"Kami, you can be so cute, Hina-chan!" Naruto said while hugging her.

Hinata relaxed and leaned into Naruto. She was happy he was back to the happy person he used to be before he left the village.

What they didn't notice was that Tsunade and Mei were standing in the doorway watching them. The two of them just smiled as they watched the happy couple. After a minute, Tsunade cleared her throat telling to the two that they were back in the room.

"Well Hinata, I have your test results, and it seems congratulations are in order," Tsunade said in a happy tone as she spoke. "Your symptoms came a little quicker than most women, but it shouldn't cause any problems. I can give you something for the fatigue, but I have a feeling that will go away in a few days anyhow. Again, I'm a little surprised that you showed these types of symptoms so quickly. Normally it's a few weeks after the fact."

"Really?" Hinata asked excitedly. Hinata was excited she was going to have Naruto's baby. Her hand went instinctively towards her belly.

Naruto was looking between Hinata and Tsunade. He didn't get what was going on. They said something was happening, but they weren't exactly being specific. "Umm... I'm lost here. What's happening exactly, and why does Hinata look really excited? Not that that's a bad thing. I love when Hinata's happy. But what's going on?"

Tsunade grinned. "Well, brat you're going to be a daddy in about nine months, maybe a little sooner, depending on how things progress." Tsunade was thoroughly amused by the look on Naruto's face, as he had been taken completely by surprise.

"I'm going to be a dad?" Naruto asked nobody in particular, not believing this was happening.

"Are you alright, Naruto-kun?" Hinata asked, a little worried. She turned her head to see that he was a little shocked.

Naruto snapped out of his daze after hearing he was going to be a father, which was something he never thought would happen. He looked into Hinata's eyes, which were filled with worry. "Yeah, I'm fine; just surprised. I honestly never thought I'd be a father." He was honestly surprised. He never considered he could get Hinata pregnant on the first try. He certainly didn't get her pregnant any other time, seeing as they used protection every time after that.

Hinata seemed disappointed. Naruto wasn't very enthusiastic about the whole thing. "You're not happy that I'm pregnant?" Hinata asked in a depressed tone.

Naruto's eye's widened. "No, no, that's not what I meant!" he replied frantically, trying to show Hinata he was happy about what was going on. "I'm happy about it, really! I was just really surprised is all. I mean, I was going to ask you to marry me in a few weeks once we went out on a few dates and I talked with your dad some more." Naruto had not meant to say the last part, but he wasn't really thinking straight at the moment. Also it's not that he didn't want to marry Hinata; it's just that he wanted the moment to be special. Of course, he blew that now.

Hinata perked up. "Really?" Hinata asked excitedly. She spun around in Naruto's arms and kissed him. The two fell back against the bed, making out.

Tsunade and Mei turned around and exited the room to give them some privacy. The two of them walked down the halls of the hospital. They needed to have the strategy meeting soon. They hoped by now Gaara was ready.

"Well, looks like there will be wedding bells soon enough, it seems," Mei said as they walked.

"Looks that way, doesn't it?" Tsunade replied.

The two kage left the hospital. Tsunade sent an ANBU to find the Kazekage so they could begin their meeting properly. An hour later the Kage and a few others met in the council room.

"So does anyone have an idea as to why they have taken this current course of action?" Tsunade asked, after she had explained all that has happened since Naruto demolished a fortress. Tsunade was addressing the others in the room.

Shikaku and Shikamaru Nara, Kakashi, Asuma, and Gai were the only others in the room. They talked about possibilities, but really couldn't think of anything. What they expected was a retaliatory action, not the opposite. Then Shikamaru thought of something. It didn't make complete sense, but it was the only thing he could think of.

"Do you think they're gunning for Naruto?"

The room fell silent.

"Explain?"

"Well, I'm sure they know who did it by now. If that's the case, wouldn't it be more prudent to harden their defensive lines seeing as he so easily destroyed a key position. Right now they will most likely send assassination teams after him, once he lets his guard down. Or the most plausible thing they will do is go after someone close to him. And I'm sure we can all agree there is only one person that fits that description." Shikamaru explained.

Everyone looked at one another, all feeling uncomfortable at what Shikamaru was saying. Tsunade was the most concerned of all, considering Naruto would be a father by the end of the year. She wasn't going to speak of that now. She didn't want that information to get out until the two of them were ready.

"There isn't much we can do except place ANBU near his estate. I know he won't allow them on the grounds at all," Tsunade said.

The doors suddenly opened and Tsunade's three advisers stormed into the room.

"Why were we not told of this?" Homura yelled.

"Because I don't know if I can trust the three of you anymore! Leave before I have you forcibly removed!" Tsunade roared.

ANBU appeared at the doorway and waited for the signal to forcibly remove the three of them from the room. However, that wasn't necessary, as they quickly exited once they got the hint. The meeting continued for a few more hours before they adjourned for the day. They decided to watch the other enemy nations closely and wait.

Naruto and Hinata were relaxing in the private hot springs at the Namikaze estate. Hinata sat in the water leaning against Naruto. Her mind was racing with thoughts of what was going to happen. They had yet to tell anyone that Hinata was with child. Naruto's arm wrapped around her in a comforting manner. Naruto didn't say anything; he just held her. He knew she was a little stressed.

"What are we going to do, Naruto-kun?" Hinata asked. "Everything is just moving so fast." Hinata wasn't really upset about having Naruto's baby. Hinata was happy about that part. She was just worried about what her friends and her clan were going to say and do about this.

"Everything will be alright, Hime. Don't worry about what others think. We can tell everyone when you're ready. Now I think it's time we got out and got some sleep. It's been a long day." Naruto got out of the water and got a robe for himself and put it on. He walked back over with another robe and waited for Hinata. He slipped the robe on her and the two left for their bedroom.

A few minutes later, they were in their room. Hinata lay on her side while Naruto had his arms wrapped around her waist, both of them still in their bathrobes. Naruto was doing his best to try and relieve Hinata's anxiety since they returned to the estate. Naruto pulled her up against him. She seemed to relax when he did that.

"What will Sora say when she hears about this?" Hinata asked.

"She'll probably wonder if she's getting a little brother or sister, I bet," he replied.

That made Hinata giggle a bit. "Yeah, I guess that does sound like a response from Sora."

"Get some sleep, Hime. I know you're tired," Naruto said as he pulled the covers over the two of them.

Hinata turned around until she was facing Naruto. He just smiled and kissed her on the forehead. Hinata buried her face into his chest as Naruto held her against him. She soon fell asleep in his arms, a smile on her face. Naruto lay there awake, holding Hinata; he could talk all he wanted about everything being alright. Yet he himself was very worried about something happening to Hinata and his child. Naruto thought about what Hinata had said earlier. Things were indeed moving fast.

Naruto looked down at Hinata, who was snuggling against him. "Don't worry Hina-chan. I'll take care of everything," he whispered.

Naruto smiled and thought about the little surprise that was on the way in the form his his first born child. He fell asleep, wondering if it was a boy or girl.
