Plans about Story:
Hey long time no see, So as a lot of you know, FF is beginning to enforce the rating policy for M rated stories. Since my story has not been hit, I see no reason to think about moving sites. (Mostly because the other ones are just so hard to navigate). I did have some plans for some lemons, but I think that if authors play by the rules now, it will return to the previous lax system, and I can write them later. So if I don't get any messages from the administrators, I will not move my story.

Kakashi, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kiba sat in the waiting room outside the Hokage's office. They had gotten back a few hours ago and were waiting to give their report of their C turned A rank mission. To pass the time, Kiba played with Akamaru, Sakura gazed at Sasuke, and Sasuke just glared out the window.
Kakashi was seemingly reading his book, but on the inside he was picturing every way this meeting could go. He knew how much the council hated Naruto, and when they found out that not only was he alive, but part of the Kumo Shinobi ranks, they could be willing to risk war to either kill or control him.
The secretary came out with three envelopes. "Here you go, Shinobi-san, your paychecks may be raised or lowered depending on the debriefing," she said, handing an envelope to each of the genin. She then turned to Kakashi, "Hokage-sama is ready for you now Kakashi-san. Your paycheck has been moved to your account," she said before returning back to her desk.
Kakashi nodded before looking at the genin team, "You guys are done for now, we have a two week recovery period from our mission, so use it however you see fit," he said gaining nods from the teens before walking to the Hokage's office.
When he entered the office, he saw Kurenai waiting for him, along with Sarutobi smoking a pipe at his desk. Sarutobi looked up and gave a grandfatherly smile to Kakashi, "Ah Kakashi-kun, how was your teams first C-rank mission? Kurenai-chan is here to hear of her own genin's performance."
Kakashi bowed before looking at Sarutobi with utmost urgency, "It was quite eventful, Hokage-sama, but I discovered something very important that should not be heard by unworthy ears," he said, making Kurenai and Sarutobi's faces become serious. The Hokage sent out his ANBU and activated the office's privacy seal. "Now Kakashi, what happened on your C-rank?" asked Sarutobi.
Kakashi nodded before starting, "We were assigned to protect the bridge builder, Tazuna, from bandits and such on his way to Nami, and until the completion of the bridge. About two days out I noticed a puddle of water in the middle of the road. I knew it was a trap, but needed to see who it was for. As soon as we passed over it, the Demon Brothers staged an attack on Tazuna," Kurenai's eyes widened slightly, while Sarutobi stared on, imploring Kakashi to continue.
"Sasuke and Kiba were able to subdue the two missing-nins enough for me to step in and defeat them," continued Kakashi. "After interrogation, I discovered that Nami had been being controlled by Gato, of Gato industries, and was abusing the town and its people. The brothers were hired to kill the bridge builder before he finished to keep the citizens in line, and not lose the monopoly they had on trade ports. After confronting Tazuna, he admitted that he signed up for the C-rank because that was all he and his family could afford. My team then took pity on him, and continued the mission."
Sarutobi looked at Kakashi with a hardened gaze, "You were right to say that this is interesting, Kakashi, but I fail to see why you placed a privacy seal."
"I am getting to that," said Kakashi, before continuing, " We continued on until we met another shinobi under Gato's payroll, Momichi Zabuza, or the Kirigakure no Kijin." Kurenai's eyes widened further, while Sarutobi took another puff of his pipe. "After a long strenuous fight, which included the use of my Sharingan, I was about to kill Zabuza when a hunter-nin took him out and thanked us for weakening him. He then pointed out a team of Kumo-nin that had been watching the fight, making them reveal themselves. They stated that they were also hired to guard Tazuna, and that since they had been the closest genin team to the area, were chosen to assist," said Kakashi, who was now hardening himself for the next sentence.
"The team consisted of Darui, the team sensei, Nii Yugito, Sho Isamu, and…Uzumaki Naruto." Sarutobi's eyes were almost out of his sockets, and Kurenai was stuttering. After Sarutobi was able to control himself a bit, he asked, hoping against hope that his surrogate grandson was still alive, "Kakashi, were you able to confirm this, was it really him?"
Kakashi nodded, "Yes, I was able to look at him with my Sharingan, there were no seals, no genjutsus, and I even saw his whisker marks. We are dealing with the real Uzumaki Naruto."
Kurenai took this time to speak up."Is he here? How is he? Does he know about his parentage?" she said, showing more emotion than she had when it was announced of his supposed death.
Kakashi looked sadly at her, "No, he is not here, even though I wish he was. He is now a Genin of Kumo, and from what I can tell, loves his new home and friends very much." Kurenai looked down at the floor, sad that she could not see the boy who she had been dying to get to know.
Sarutobi also looked saddened. He would have been overjoyed to see the blonde boy; it would of brought tears to his eyes. "Kakashi, what are his opinions on Konoha?", he asked, dreading the answer.
"While Naruto shows no hate towards Konoha itself, he seems to highly dislike the people here, excluding you, myself, Kiba, and the Ichirakus," said Kakashi, who then turned to Kurenai, who seemed even more depressed that her name was not on the list. "Don't worry Kurenai, though Naruto may dislike the majority of Konoha, you can still get to know him and be a part of his life like I am. He seems to know of his Uzumaki heritage and if you told him that you were one of Kushina's students, he might give you a chance," he said with an eye smile, making Kurenai give a small smile of gratitude back, inwardly making a vow to get to know Naruto.
Sarutobi gave a small cough to gain the attention of his two shinobi. "While I know we all would like to see Naruto-kun again, what can you tell of how he got to Kumo, and his skill level?"
Kakashi looked back at Sarutobi with the utmost seriousness, "From what he told me, the day he was attacked, it was orchestrated by a woman with pink hair, most likely councilor Haruno, and then was taken into the forest to die." Kurenai and Sarutobi snarled at the woman's name, Kakashi ignored this and continued, "He then said that a Kumo shinobi, who he refuses to give the name of, rescued him, treated him, and offered to be his teacher in the shinobi arts. He then traveled with this man for a few years, before returning to Kumo to enter the last year of the academy. From what I can tell, the Jonin who found him was quite skilled. I would currently place Naruto's skills around that of a high chunin, and that is without his Kekkei Genkai."
This caught Sarutobi's attention. "Kekkei Genkai? Neither of his parents ever had one, so what are the specifics of this?" he asked, generally curious about his surrogate grandson.
"Darui mentioned it, saying that is called on the Kyuubi's chakra, but though I do not know what it is, I know it has something to do with fire and lightning, because when Naruto fought the fake hunter-nin, the body ended up with severe burns and lightning sparkling around it," said Kakashi. He then proceeded to tell Sarutobi about the discovery of how Zabuza was still alive, training his and Darui's teams, and defeating Zabuza and his apprentice.
When he was finished, Kurenai stepped up, "Hokage-sama, I would like to recommend myself to bring Councilor Haruno to justice for betraying you," she said, absolutely resolved to bring destruction to the one who had removed Naruto from the village.
Sarutobi shook his head, "That will not be needed, Kurenai-chan, I already have a plan to deal with her." This caused Kurenai to look irritated at not being able to do anything to the Haruno. "But from what I remember, you are friends with Anko-chan, who is part of the IT department. Maybe you can convince her to let you be a part of her interrogation". This made Kurenai gain a dark grin, before nodding thanks.
Sarutobi undid the privacy seal and flared his Chakra, causing the Tori ANBU to appear in front of him, "Tori, go gather the council members for an immediate meeting at 3. And tell them that if anyone is late, their clans will lose their position." Tori nodded, before using a Shunshin to go inform the members. Sarutobi then looked at his two jonin, "Kakashi-kun, your team will be compensated for an A-rank mission, but you will need to come with me to inform the shinobi council of these developments. Kurenai-chan, you might want to go and convince Anko to let you have a turn with the soon to be ex-councilor Haruno," he said, getting a nod from Kakashi, and a 'Hai' from Kurenai, who then rushed out to talk to Anko.
Sarutobi began to walk out of the office, "Come Kakashi-kun, wouldn't want to keep the council waiting, would we?" he said, making Kakashi follow close behind the elder kage.
The council was abuzz about what the meeting would be about; all anyone knew was that it was important, as the Hokage would not threaten a clan's status if it weren't. The ninja council sat on the left side, while the civilian council sat on the right. The elders, including the honorary member, Danzo, sat across from the doors of the meeting hall.
All talking was halted when the Hokage, Hiruzen Sarutobi, and Jonin Shinobi, Hatake Kakashi, walked in. An arrogant civilian council member chose to be the first to speak, "Ah, Hokage-sama, may I ask why we have been called today at such short notice?" He froze when the legendary ninja placed a fair amount of KI on him, before moving up to his seat, with Kakashi right behind him.
"Now before we begin", started Sarutobi, "I believe it is important to get rid of the trash." With a snap of his fingers, ANBU appeared behind Councilor Haruno, and pushed her out of her seat, before using a Shunshin to appear with her in the center of the meeting hall, now sporting some iron handcuffs with small seals etched on the sides.
The Civilians and Elder were shocked by the sudden move of their Hokage, while the shinobi council's interest was peaked. "What is the meaning of this!" yelled the eldest pink banshee, "I am on the civilian council; you cannot do this to me!"
When Sarutobi spoke, his voice was cold, making some of the veteran ninja shiver. "Ex-councilor Haruno, you are accused of betraying this village and its military, how do you plead?"
"Not Guilty! Now release me", she yelled, anger evident on her face.
A dark grin rose on Sarutobi's face, "Well we are going to have to change that opinion aren't we? ANBU, take her to Ibiki's 'care'. And if a certain jonin wants to help, she has my permission."
The pink haired woman's face, and the face of everyone in the room, paled at the mention of Ibiki, she screamed and struggled with her chains as she was dragged out, only being cut off when the doors slammed shut behind her.
"Well now, that is out of the way," said Sarutobi, acting as if he had not just sent someone to be horribly tortured, "Let us get to business." Needless to say, after his demonstration of his power, the entire council was at attention. "As you know, the Chunin exams will he held here soon. I am even sure that most of your children will be participating this year," he said, getting a nod from the ninja clan heads.
"This year, I am going to invite Kumo to participate and attempt to create an alliance with them." His decision was met with cries of protest from the civilian council, the elders, and the Hyuga clan head, Hyuga Hiashi. However, they were all silenced with a blast of chakra from the elder Kage.
Hiashi was the first to speak, "I will have none of this! These are the same savages who attempted to kidnap my daughter and killed my brother! Why would we want a treaty with them in the first place!" he yelled, getting shouts of agreement from the civilian side.
Sarutobi looked him dead in the eye. "Hiashi, while I know that your clan has a history with Kumo, this is not about you, this is about us, and this village's protection."
Hiashi was about to speak again, but was interrupted by Shikaku Nara, "You seem adamant about this. What does Kumo have that we don't?" he asked, looking towards the Hokage for an answer.
Sarutobi nodded at Shikaku for his insight, "You are correct. As many of you know, during the Third Shinobi War, there were reports of a Kumo Jinchuriki who had gained complete control of the Hachibi. Later, there were reports of Kumo creating another Jinchuriki, this time, the Nibi no Nekomata. Today I have discovered from a completely reliable source, that they have gained another Jinchuriki."
This scared the entire council hall; no country had ever had more then two Biju, and with reports of a country having three and themselves none, it was quite disturbing. "But which biju do they possess?" asked Tsume Inuzuka.
Sarutobi looked right at her. "Their container is Uzumaki Naruto, and by extension, the Kyuubi no Yoko". The council erupted in a cacophony of yelling. Some yelled for war, while others demanded that they retake Naruto from Kumo. They were all silenced again when Sarutobi screamed, "ENOUGH!" laced with a heavy dosage of KI.
"Hiruzen," said Danzo, "I recommend that we try and reclaim the boy. He can still be a valuable weapon, just with training from Kumo, we would be getting power and information at once."
Hiruzen gave a bark of bitter laughter, "Are you really that foolish, Danzo?" he asked, getting a growl from Danzo. "The Kyuubi destroyed a large portion of the village, including a lot our own people on its own. Do you really think that we could protect ourselves from the Kyuubi, Nibi, Hachibi, and to top it all off, the Kumo military? We would be slaughtered even before the first move." The bluntness in his tone emphasized the idea.
"Also, kidnapping would be impossible. Kumo seems to treat their Jinchuriki with some decent amount of respect, unlike our own villagers. And added on to the fact that they have a perfect Jinchuriki, who could no doubt teach the other two as well, we would be walking to our own deaths. No, the only path we can take is peace. Not only that, it will recreate trade between our two nations that has not existed since the era of the Nidaime, something our economy sorely needs," finished Sarutobi, leaving no room for argument. "Now if the civilian and elder council would leave, we have some shinobi business to discuss. And if any of you talk about what has been said today, especially Uzumaki Naruto, you will be joining Ms. Haruno in the IT department," he continued. Begrudgingly, both councils left, leaving the shinobi council and Sarutobi.
"Is there something else about the Kumo treaty that you did not tell us?" asked Choza Akimichi.
Sarutobi nodded, "I trust you all remember the true parentage of Uzumaki Naruto?" he asked, getting nods. Sarutobi had told the council about Naruto's parentage as an SS-rank secret, about two years after his supposed death.
"What I didn't tell you is that his godfather is my student Jiraiya; when he found out that Naruto had died, he was heartbroken. If he finds out Naruto is alive, he might seek him out, but will remain loyal to the village. The real reason I am worried is his Godmother, Senju Tsunade," said Hiruzen, causing the council to gasp. "After the Kyuubi attack, I have reason to believe that Tsunade was tricked into thinking her godson was dead. I have suspected the elders and Danzo, but have found no proof with which to accuse them. Tsunade would have not left her godson to this- she was giddy with the thought of being a godmother. If she discovers that Naruto is alive in Kumo, and that the elders lied to her, that may well be the last straw for her, and she could leave Hi no Kuni to be with her godson."
The Shinobi council knew what that would mean; the village would lose its last true link to the Senju bloodline. Yes, while Tsunade was out of the village, she was still considered to be a loyal member of the hidden leaf. If she decided to move her clan to Kumo, all remnants of the two founding clans would be almost completely lost, save the last loyal Uchiha, who, even with the coveted Sharingan, was still just a genin. And while they would still have Yamato, it had been discovered though numerous tests that the Mokuton could not be passed down, and many were too human to repeat Orochimaru's actions towards another child.
Not to mention all of the medical knowledge Kumo would gain; Tsunade was not a legendary medic for nothing. During the Daisanji Ninkai Taisen, she had created antidotes to any poison thrown at her. Having her in Kumo would increase the production of highly trained Iryo-nin, able to dish out as much as they could cure.
Seeing that the Shinobi council understood the gravity of the situation, Sarutobi continued, "I see that you all understand the predicament. Inform your clan about my plan, and make sure that no one does anything drastic," he said, his eyes lingering on Hiashi near the end.
He then turned and began to walk towards the door, but just as he was about to leave, he stopped. "I know that this is not Konoha's finest moment," he started, gathering the attention of the clan heads, "But this is all we can do. Due to the ignorance of both the villagers, and yourselves, we lost a boy who not only contained the blood of two of our finest Shinobi, but also a beast that could level armies at will. We knew this, and yet our village's hate clouded our judgment, and we tried to make the poor boy's life a living hell. This is not a war we can win, we will not come out on top, we lost that chance years ago. All I am doing is trying to protect my village. Though I do not like all of them for their actions, I still love everyone who calls and once called this village their home, for that is my duty as Hokage. We have already lost; all I can do is try and recover as many pieces as I can to help us survive."
With that he left, soon followed by Kakashi, leaving the clan heads to think of how they were going to explain this to their clans.
4 days after Meeting in Konoha
After Team 33 flashed their ID's to the Kumogakure guards, they began to walk to the Raikage's tower. Naruto, with his mask, to Yugito and Nibi's displeasure, covering the lower half of his face, said, "God, Aya-chan's ramen sounds so good right now. I am going to eat half miso, and half pork. Or maybe, half miso, quarter pork, and quarter shrimp. Or maybe-" he was cut off when Yugito knocked him on the head.
"Baka, there are other places to eat besides Aya's, and other things to eat besides ramen, like sushi."
Naruto gave her a pleading look, "But it's ramen, it is liquid awesome, and if I don't have it, my awesome supply will run out! Come on Yugi-chan."
Yugito just looked back at him with a smirk, "Awesome or not, you still have to buy me sushi for four more weeks," she said, making Naruto look down to the ground in depression, which made Yugito laugh.
When the team finally entered the Raikage's tower, they saw Mabui sitting at her desk. She was a dark skinned woman with green eyes and light gray hair. Currently, she had her hair tied in a bun, but leaving two bangs to fall on either side of her face. As the Raikage's assistant, she wore the standard uniform: a long sleeved black shirt along with a black skirt, accompanied by some earrings and sandals.
"Ohayo Mabui-nee, is Ero-Densetsu ready for us," he asked. During Naruto's stay in Kumo, due to all the pranks he and Yugito pulled, he had gotten close to Mabui. She had even treated him to ramen once, which she vowed to never do again because later, she had to work overtime to compensate for the cost of the meal.
Mabui giggled, "You know, I don't think A-sama likes it very much when you call him that," she lightly chided, secretly liking the name as well. Naruto just shrugged, "If I didn't call him it, who else would, plus if he can survive Kirabi-sensei's raps, then calling him Ero-Densetsu won't hurt."
Mabui just sighed, before pressing a button on her desk to inform the Raikage of visitors. When the light above the button turned red, she looked back at the team. "Raikage-sama will see you now," she said, earning a nod of thanks from Darui, before leading the Genin towards the door.
A was sitting at his desk, seemingly working on the mountains of paperwork that came with his position. When he noticed Team 33 waiting in front of him, he gave them all a bored glance. "Have an interesting trip?" he asked.
Darui nodded, "Hai, both missions complete, first the C-rank in Yu, then the C turned A in Nami," he said, while his students stayed silent. A nodded, "Yes, I heard a bit about your mission in Nami already, heard you had an unexpected meeting with a Konoha team," he said. Seeing some looks of confusion on his shinobi's faces, he picked up a small carrier scroll amongst the piles of papers on his desk. On the ends of the scroll, were the seals for Konoha. "A little bird told me," he said humorlessly.
A got up from his chair and walked to look out the window. "Imagine my surprise when I got a hawk from Konoha, not only telling me of your involvement in a C turned A rank mission, but also inviting Kumo to participate in the Chunin exams being held there this year," A said as he looked down at the people walking below.
Turning to his team, he said in a commanding voice, "I am sure they left some parts out, but I will trust my own ninja to tell me what happened."
Darui then began to explain every detail of the trip, from the bandit camp in Yu, to the battle with Zabuza. While he retold their mission, A's face betrayed no emotion. When he was done, A turned to three genin, "What were your opinions on the other Genin, don't let your formalities hinder the truth."
Isamu was the first to speak, "As a team, they appeared to fairly green Genin, most likely their first C rank out of the village. I do remember that the Inuzuka was a part of another team, but was working with this one for the mission. The Inuzuka was brash and stubborn, but did show genuine care for his teammates as a shinobi of Konoha. The jutsus he used were obviously from his clan, and showed a proficient mastery of some of the medium rank Taijutsu styles. The kunoichi, if you could call her that, was lacking in both Tai and Ninjutsu, following the Uchiha member like a lost puppy. While she was no doubt smarter than her other teammates, she is still little to no threat. The Uchiha is without a doubt trained well, showing high skill in both Taijutsu and Ninjutsu, which is strengthened by the Sharingan. My impression was that he is merely in Konoha because of its attachment to the Uchiha clan, and that it serves his personal goals." When he was done, Isamu returned to his original space.
A turned his attention to Yugito, who took a step forward, a rare serious expression on her face. "The Genin's performance was well below ours, it is actually surprising to think they come from the presumed strongest hidden village. The Inuzuka could be a great tracker someday, but that girl is a horrible excuse for a kunoichi. Hell, even Yuriko-shofu could kick the crap out of her without barely trying. Without that brain of hers, I doubt she ever would have graduated. And the Uchiha is a dick. No question there, he will do anything to come out on top, with his teammates or not. I wouldn't turn my back on him unless he was behind an iron cage and had a prison seal placed on his back," she said with a lot of aggravation in her voice. When she was finished she returned to her spot next to Isamu and Naruto.
A turned his attention towards the masked teen, eagerly waiting to hear his opinion. "Well, what did you think, gaki," he said, not really asking, but telling Naruto to answer.
Naruto was still for a moment before he took a step up, "As Yugi-chan said, it is really surprising that they were Genin from the so called strongest Nation, but as Isamu said, I believe that this is mainly because they were brand new. They all seemed a bit hostile towards us in the beginning, namely for the Kumo/Hyuga incident, but some like Inuzuka Kiba, and their sensei, Hatake Kakashi seemed to lighten up as temporary teammates."
A and the rest of the team just stared at Naruto as he continued, "Kiba and his dog, Akamaru, no doubt carry the Will of Fire, a trait which Jiji told me all great Konoha shinobi have. If he continues to train, he will no doubt be a powerful tracker. Sakura is just as Yugi-chan said, a useless excuse for a kunoichi. I would have guessed that she joined the Konoha force just to be with the Uchiha. She is no doubt related to the woman who orchestrated the attack on me when I was six." Isamu, Yugito, and Darui's eyes widened a bit when he spoke of the relationship between Sakura and the woman who had tortured him.
Seeing the looks he was getting, Naruto explained, "I did not want to bring it up, namely because while Haruno-san is related to that woman, she had no involvement in my attack. Blaming her for something her mother did would be just like the villagers blaming me for Kyuubi." Hearing this the eyes of his teammates softened, and A, who had not changed his facial expression then entire time, waved his hand for Naruto to continue.
Nodding, Naruto continued, "Uchiha Sasuke…is one of the few people I despise," he said, causing A's stare to harden. Naruto began to look at the ground, not meeting anyone's eyes, his hands balled into ever tightening fists. "He has almost no respect towards his teammates or others, simply because of his blood. He views others as beneath him, even if the other is stronger. If someone is stronger than him, he takes it as an immediate insult to his pride as an Uchiha. Kakashi even told me something, a motto he lives and bases his shinobi lifestyle around."
Naruto looked back up into A's eyes, allowing him to see that his once sapphire colored eyes had hardened into a dark blue. "In this world, those who break the rules are considered to be trash. However, those who abandon their friends are even lower than trash," said Naruto, in the exact words of the one-eyed shinobi. "Sasuke Uchiha," said Naruto hatefully, his eyes flashing crimson for a moment, "is lower than trash. Each moment I was with him, I got to see more of what a model Uchiha was. The more I saw, the easier it was to understand why Uchiha Itachi murdered his entire clan."
Yugito, hearing enough, took a step forward and put a hand on Naruto's shoulder. Naruto turned and saw Yugito's worrying catlike eyes staring at him, making him calm down. Giving her a nod of thanks, she smiled and returned back to her place in line, A inwardly chuckling at the situation, both happy that the two got along so well, and for having something to make fun of Naruto for later.
Turning back to A, Naruto took a deep breath before continuing. "If Kumo ever gets their hands on an Uchiha, I personally think that their overall arrogance and hatred for other clans would hurt us more than the Sharingan would help," finished Naruto.
A nodded, before asking, "And the sensei? Hatake Kakashi, what do you think of him," his voice betraying no personal thoughts. Naruto thought for a moment, "When he first saw me, he pulled out his Sharingan. But, instead of attacking, he merely looked me over, before saying that I was real, and covering his eye. He stayed away from me for the first night, but after that made attempts to get to know me. Not as a shinobi, or as a Jinchuriki, but as a person. I later recognized his hair as the same as one of the ANBU who was regular guardian for me. Out of all my guards, he was the one who would stop attacks before they began, and if he was late, take me to the hospital. He is one of the few Konoha shinobi that I could trust, besides Kiba, who if you get to know him, is not so bad. He even apologized for not being able to protect me enough. Frankly I think that he is trying to create a friendship with me not for the village's sake, but because it is personal." When Naruto finished, he stepped back next to his teammates.
A sighed before reaching under his desk and pulling out a 45 kilo dumbbell, which he started to mindlessly toss around in his hand, despite its weight. "Darui, your teams will be compensated for both missions, with the later one as an A rank. While you would normally have two weeks recovery time, you have three. Yours, along with Team 22, under Kirabi, and Team 30 under Takashi Manabu will be attending the Chunin Exams in Konoha next month. I was wary at first, but a team of genin who can accomplish an A rank on their second out of village mission is definitely someone who I want to represent Kumo at the exams," he said, getting 'hai' from Darui.
Turning to the Genin, he continued,"Now since this has been the first time Kumo has been in Konoha for a while, I want all Genin on their best behavior, especially you two, Naruto and Yugito. No pranking, got it, Gakis? No matter how much they deserve it, if I hear one word about anything being painted purple or orange, I will tie you both to a chair and have Kirabi test his new raps on you." Yugito and Naruto paled as the heard the punishment, making a quick and stiff salute before saying 'Hai'. Seeing this made A grin madly.
"Now I recommend you use this month to stock up on anything you need. Only light training, so I am putting your Biju training on hold. Do you understand?" A yelled getting a chorus of 'hai'.
"Then you are dismissed. Darui will remain behind to go over other aspects of the mission and fill out your chunin exam forms." Naruto, Isamu, and Yugito nodded before they started to leave the room. When Naruto was about to leave, he heard A's voice, "Gaki, hold on a sec."
Turning, Naruto gave him a mischievous glance. "Hai, Ero-Densetsu?" he asked, before having to quickly duck as the dumbbell impaled itself in the wall behind his head. "Stop calling me that, Damn it. I need you to come in tomorrow to go over something with my student and I about your upcoming trip to Konoha. Be here between 7 and 9 am," said A, a tick mark still on his head from the 'Ero-Densetsu' comment.
Naruto nodded, "Hai, it is between when the latest brothels close and the earliest hot springs open." Seeing A nod, Naruto took his leave, waving goodbye to Mabui, and leaving the building.
When he got outside, he was surprised to see Isamu and Yugito waiting for him. Yugito grinned, "Did you really think that we weren't going to celebrate kicking ass on our first A-rank AND going to wipe the floor with the Konoha brats in the Chunin exams? Uh uh, tonight we party, because after that, we train until we fall," she said, slipping under Naruto's arm. Naruto smiled, and nodded, before walking with his team to the nearest store that sold excess amounts of ramen and sushi, all the while with Yugito under his arm.
