A/N

My boyfriend of 3 years just gave me an angel figurine for my desk at work...

Here I am at work and as I stared at the item... this plot popped out of nowhere...

***POOF***

The story was then born.

There are a lot of loop-holes on this story

since I haven't taken time to create it's own universe and rules...

I am just after the love story... mushy... fluffy... hahahaha...

I hope you'll like it... I enjoyed writing it... :D


Flying Without Wings

Chapter 1 : Heaven

"I am so happy you finally auditioned for the choir..." A beautiful blonde angel with aquamarine eyes commented as she strummed her harp. A beautiful raven haired angel with lavender eyes nodded "I finally took the courage to... It was worth it..." she added as she held her flute tightly to her chest. "Ino... Ino..." a lively voice called out and the blonde angel looked back. "Hey Sakura... Join me and Hinata here..." she called out as she waved her hand. A cute angel with strawberry-blonde hair flew to their direction and sat in between them.

The three of them started to have a good conversation about the choir and some daily stuff. The three of them had been best friends since they where young. They began laughing at some joke until a chirpy voice stopped the riot. "Hi girls..." A blonde with blue eyes greeted them "Hello Naruto..." they greeted in unison... their melodic voices echoed all over the area. The blonde grinned. He floated above them and saw that Ino was painting her nails with something like red ink... "Uh.. what's that Ino?" he asked. Ino looked up "It's nail ink... my mom got it from the human merchandise after her mission..." she smiled proudly.

"Can I try some?" he asked and Ino nodded. He took the brush and began painting his thumbnail as he listened to Ino telling everyone that she loved red. Soon a few spots splattered over and hit Ino's wing. Naruto studied the stained wing and decided to himself that the red spots looked nice. he added a few more and even drew a small heart. He stopped when he realized that Hinata was looking at him and tugging on Ino's sleeve. Ino's eyes grew wide and her face turned beet red. "Naruto! What are you doing?" she screeched and Naruto quickly made his great escape from the fury of the blonde angel.

An hour later...

"NARUTO!" an annoyed booming voice bellowed. A blonde being flew sideways and hid behind the cumulus clouds. He wasn't scared nor worried as he chuckled behind the fluff. He continued chuckling as he reminisced his escapade earlier. He played a prank on one of his friends earlier and he knew that his victim already reported to their headmaster. He was immune to it... he always gets detention daily, but was always forgiven. He grinned and turned his back and hit something hard that he fell down. "Going somewhere, hm?" A tall man with flowing silver hair questioned him with arms folded over his chest.

Naruto, a young angel that fervently hoped to be an Archangel someday. He was mischievous and lacked seriousness due to his age and care-free attitude. But despite that, he was a good angel... just too playful... He had silky long hair that had the color of the sun, a pair of bright blue eyes that mirrored the ocean. Naruto looked up and gave the tall man a toothy grin. The man huffed and looked bored as he continued to stare at Naruto. The blonde got up and bowed "Good-morning Kakashi-sensei... I was..." he stammered. "Save it! Come with me..." the man ordered and turned his back, motioning Naruto to follow.

They were both silent as they flew. Naruto had his lips pursed and it formed a thin line. Kakashi, one of the Archangels and teachers in the Angel Academy escorted Naruto to the head angel's quraters. Naruto heard his teacher sigh sadly and it made him feel bad. "Naruto... why did you have to put red paint Ino's wings? Don't you know how hard it is to remove paint stains on our feathers?" the man asked as he turned his head and looked at the blonde. Naruto bowed "Well... she said she loved red..." he explained "But not on her wings!" Kakashi exclaimed. Naruto bowed... he did it again... like always.

Soon they both reached the golden gates of the head angel's quarters. Kakashi motioned Naruto to stay at the lounge as he went in to report. Naruto nodded and floated at the corner near the window. Kakashi gave Naruto a skeptical look then turned to knock on the door. "Come in..." both heard the approval and Kakashi turned the knob and entered the bright room. Naruto watched as the door engulfed his teacher. He peeked outside and saw a couple of guardians patrolling... Guardian angels who would soon be Archangels... his ultimate dream job. He sighed as he watched them dreamily.

"Naruto..." Kakashi called out and the blonde turned his head and stood up. He floated silently towards the door. Kakashi nodded and motioned him to go inside. He followed Naruto in. In the middle of the great room rested a golden table. There sat Jiraiya, head angel and gatekeeper of the heavens. He had long wavy white hair with spikes on the sides. He had his chin rested on the palm of his right hand and looked at Naruto with knowing eyes "Good to see you again Naruto..." he greeted the boy with a toothy grin. Naruto smiled weakly and bowed.

"Jiraiya-sama... I..." he started to defend himself but was immediately cut-off. Jiraiya took a couple of papers and scanned them "...ssshhh... I'm reading..." Jiraiya hushed Naruto. The blonde shut his mouth and waited for his punishment. Last week, he cleaned 84 pillars surrounding the great dining hall. Jiraiya eyed Naruto "Naruto... what will I do to you?" Jiraiya commented as he gave out a sigh. Suddenly his dark eyes sparkled with delight as an idea brewed in his mind. "Naruto... I am giving you a mission..." he happily exclaimed making Kakashi frown.

"A... mission? But I'm not a guardian yet..." Naruto opposed. Jiraiya was beaming "Bah... that's okay... Besides, this mission will do you good..." he exclaimed as he rose from his chair and went over to the shelves at the corner. He looked over the files. He finally found the folder he needed. He took it and went back to his chair. "Naruto, I am assigning you to visit a certain human..." he started, not even looking up from the files. Naruto gulped... a human... so he will be sent to earth... "A human, Jiraiya-sama?" he asked and the had angel nodded.

"Based on his records here... he will die next month..." he read out and Naruto listened. Kakashi was adjusting the stray feather on his wing. "The mission is for you to aid him to do a good deed... before he dies... so his soul will wait in line for the final judgment." Jiraiya exclaimed as he scribbled some notes on the file. Naruto's brows furrowed 'Do a good deed... is he that bad?' he asked himself. Jiraiya's booming voice broke his thoughts "You need to help him do a selfless sacrifice before he dies... if that happens, your mission is a success." he stated matter-of-factly.

"But what if I fail, Jiraiya-sama?" Naruto worriedly asked. Jiraiya looked back on his notes "Then I'll have to assign another human to you..." he shrugged. Naruto nodded. "Oh... and one more thing..." the head angel quickly said. Naruto looked up "There's more?" he asked with a frown. Jiraiya nodded wickedly "Yes..." his eyes twinkling with delight. "What is it?" Naruto asked, scolding himself at the same time why he dared himself to ask. Jiraiya was an angle of just, but sometimes his punishments were unreasonable... The blonde waited for the additional punishment.

"Naruto... you will do this mission..." Jiraiya said and then cut off... wanting suspense to occur. Naruto pouted "Just tell me please?" he said anxiously. With a great big grin the head angel said "... as a human..." he added with finality. Naruto's jaw fell. He just heard a death sentence. He can't do anything without his wings. "But Jiraiya-sama..." he strated to oppose. The head angel shook his head "You heard me... you will be human for this mission... no buts... or else... I'll send you to clean the gates near Oblivion..." he threatened Naruto.

Oblivion was the pathway to hell... the heat and the flaming atmosphere could destroy an angel's wings in mere minutes. And the wings are an angel's prized possession... and it could never be repaired. Naruto gulped "Okay... I'll go... as a human... just don't send me to Oblivion..." he frowned. Jiraiya clapped "Good... that's settled then..." he grinned. "When will I... um... go?" he asked. "Tomorrow... after I brief you with some stuff... and Kakashi will also teach you some human stuff..." the head angel glanced at Kakashi and the Archangel nodded.

"Oh one more thing Naruto... once you pass the mission... I will make you a guardian right away..." Jiraiya said, his eyes twinkling. Naruto brightened 'Wow... if I become a guardian... that would be one step nearer in becoming an Archanagel...' he thought happily. "Wow... I accept... I accept... brief me now..." he excitedly exclaimed. "Alright, let's start..." Jiraiya chuckled as Kakashi sat at the corner. "Who is this human...?" he asked as he waited. The head angel scanned over the files again "Let's see... here it is..." the head angel said. "His name is Sasuke Uchiha..." Jiraiya said as he laid the files before Naruto.
