-Epilogue-

Ten Years Later

A tall blond lounged back in his chair, letting out a small sigh of annoyance, while eying the still growing stack of paperwork. He almost growled, when the doors to his Office exploded inwards, with many shouts, and insults.

"OBAA-CHAN! Let me go!" A screaming six year old boy, with red hair, and deep blue eyes was being held under the immovable arms of none other than Uchiha Sakura.

"Shut it, brat! I ain't old, you play my son for heaven's sake! Naruto, I caught this little brat tagging up the memorial stone in the cemetary." She said crossly. The blond sighed.

Was this how the Third and Baa-chan felt?

"Ok, Sakura. Just leave him here." She nodded, and threw the kid in while slamming the door behind her.

"Jira... No... Namikaze Jiraiya... What am I going to do with you..." He mused aloud.

"How about... we leave Mom out of this?" He suggested.

"Perhaps.." Naruto smiled as he watched his second oldest son gulped quickly.

"Jira... Come with me." Naruto swept his son into his arms, and flashed away.


They reappeared at the giant blue stone, and Naruto let the boy down.

"Jira... Tell me what do you think this place is?"

"I dunno.."

"Jira... This is a place, where we pay homage to thoses heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us."

"Heroes?"

"Yes, Jira.. every single name of that stone, is the name of a Great Hero." Naruto led the boy to the list of names, and let him run his hands on the engravings.

The boy stopped and studied two particular names.

"Jira-Jiraiya? Thats my name!"

"Yes, but it was also the name of my teacher, he was a great man, and a hero." THe boy touched several other names before stopping at one.

"Uzu-Uzumaki Nagato? Didn't you used to have that name, Uzumaki?"

"Yes, I did. And Nagato, he was indeed a great man, he had a hard life, and was lost for a while, but in the end, he made the ultimate sacrifice to right the wrongs as best he could." He mumbled softly and ruffled his son's hair fondly. His son's quick eyes, found two more familiar names.

"Uzu-Uzuamki Kushina? Huh? Why is Shina's name on here?"

"Uzumaki Kushina was my mother, just as Namikaze Hinata is yours."

"So your mommy is a hero?" Naruto felt a small smile split his face.

"Yes, and she is your grandmother. But you know what? This is your Grandpa." He took the boy's hand to the name and let him read it.

"Namikaze Minato? So... Min is named after Grandpa?" The boy said with a large smile on his face.

"Yes, Jira. Your mother and I decided we wanted our children to be named after Heroes, so that they could continue on being Heroes into the future." The little boy sat quietly for a moment, before smiling brightly.

"Then, one day, Imma Hokage!" Naruto chuckled.

"I'm sure you will."


Naruto swept into the large house he and his new family shared, and let his small son run to greet his mother. Hinata bent down and swept him into her other arm as one arm was currently holding a newborn. Then, just as Naruto took a step forward, two more children came down the stairs.

"Tou-san!" They yelled in synch, and threw themselves on him.

"Ack! Get off, your all too heavy!" He moaned theatrically. The two children on his legs smiled and laughed. THe oldest boy, a carbon copy of Naruto, minus the whiskers, stepped back.

"We missed you Tou-san!" He cried and latched onto his father's waist.

"I missed you too, Ryuu."

His daughter, who was his wife's double, also let go and chirped up at him.

"And you as well, Shina."

Hinata walked up to the smiling children, and Naruto shot her his Special just for her smile.

"Tadaima."

"Oideyasu." He smiled broader and snatched the bundle from her, and crooned at the small bundle of black hair. The baby seemed to realize that he was being held, and opened his eyes to reveal two beautiful cerulean orbs.

"Ohayo, Min-kun." He whispered down at the baby, who smiled sleepily.

"Alright, come on. Dinner's waiting." Hinata chided gently. The children jumped up and ran to the table dragging their parents there. As Naruto walked in, a surly raven looked up at him.

"Hey, Dobe."

"Teme-" He got no farther, as two pairs of hands whipped out of no where, and twin voices chanted together.

"shall we watch our language today?" Hinata and Sakura chanted in a syrupy sweet voice, but their eyes promised a slow pain death, if the answer was no.

"Yes..."

"Good." They snapped and went back to gathering the seven kids. Sasuke growled, but his face softened as his eldest boy, a carbon copy of Itachi, sat down next to him, and placed his head on his father's shoulder.

"Whats wrong, Daisuke?"

"I'm hungry." Naruto chuckled and Sasuke smirked.

"Well, mom and Aunty Hinata are a little bit busy, so if you want to eat, go get Ryuu and help seat the kids." Daisuke studied his father with his grey Uchiha eyes before smiling and jumping into his task. The two lounged back and made small talk.

"So, how is Koto doing?"

"Mikoto is fine. How is Jiraiya doing?" Sasuke wrinkled his nose at the name.

"What? He was a good man, a lil perverted but a good man.

"If my Mikoto falls for him, I will not allow it! He will take after his namesake and his father, both real perverts." The Uchiha smirked at him.

"Haha, laugh it up. You Uchihas are all a crack seriously, why can't you just let the past die! I'm happily married now!"

"Says the boy who created the Sexy-" A frying pan cut off the sentence, by hitting Naruto, instead of Sasuke who dodged.

"I think it would be safer to wait till the kids go to bed to talk." Sasuke murmured to howling blond.

"YA THINK!"

"Anyways..." Sasuke swiftly cut in.

"Did you hear? Hana is pregnant again." Sasuke's eyes glittered happily at the statement.

"Jesus... So thats gonna be Itachi's fourth?"

"Yeah. And you know how Hana gets when she's pregnant, I would suggest for the safety of my family that you not send Itachi anywhere for the next four months." Naruto smiled at him.

"I'll take that into consideration."

"Dinner!" Sakura's snapped at them, while managing to remain calm and light for the kids.

Naruto got up, and followed the Raven towards the Dining room, when he stopped in the doorway, and stared at the sight before him. His four children, mixed with the Uchiha children, sitting next to his wife, and Sakura, while Sasuke sat right down next to his two eldest children.

How did I get so blessed, to have such a future? He thought to himself. Then, he smiled.

Arigato, Nagato-san, Tou-san, Kaa-san, and Ero-senin.
