Next morning

Naruto woke up early and took a quick shower and got dressed in his shirt and pants he got yesterday. Ino would be coming over in a few hours so he decided to eat some ramen. He really liked ramin, especially Ichiraku Ramin. He dug in and decided to strap his sword on his back. Not even half an hour later he heard a knock on the door. He opened it to see Ino with her sword on her back and a big smile on her face.

"Hi Naruto!" Ino said.

"Hey Ino. Where are we going?" Naruto asked.

"My dad has a friend who knows about sword fighting so he'll teach us." Ino said. Naruto nodded and locked his apartment.

"So are we going to your house?" Naruto wondered.

"Yeah we have a training ground." Ino explained.

"That's so cool Ino!"

"Thanks," Ino said while giggling. The two ignored the stares they got from the villagers and soon came up on Ino's house.

"My daddy's off to talk with the Hokage about you staying with us so we're alone for a few hours until daddy's friend comes." Ino said. Naruto nodded and sat on the could with Ino. "So...Naruto tell me about yourself"

"Umm...like what?"

"What do you do in your free time?"

"I like to read, eat ramen, listen to music, and imagine what my parents would be like." Naruto said. "What about you?"

"Well I just watch my daddy train hoping I could be like him."

"Oh. Well that's cool" Naruto said.

With Inoichi

Inoichi walked through the village towards the Hokage Mansion. He said his hellos to the jonin standing guard at the entranced at went up to the Hokage's office. Inoichi walked to the door and knocked before coming in.

"Come in," the Hokage said. Inoichi opened the door and bowed at the Hokage.

"Hokage-sama I would like to request something to you." Inoichi said getting to the point.

"Very well what is it?" The Hokage asked.

"I was wondering on the request of my daughter that Naruto Uzumaki move in with us. They have quite the relationship." Inoichi said.

The Hokage signed and looked down. "I'm sorry but I must decline the request. You along with Naruto and your daughter Ino will understand what I mean."

"Umm...Yes sir," Inoichi said and bowed before leaving.

The Hokage sighed 'Naruto I hope you will understand this' the Hokage thought looking at the Hokage faces. Then he turned back to something world than S-rank Shinobi criminals. Paperwork...

With Inoichi

'Ino's probably not gonna like this' Inoichi thought as he walked home. He continued to walk home until he met a friend of his.

"Hey Shikaku how is it going?" Inoichi asked the man.

"It's troublesome, you?" Skikaku said and yawned.

"You were always a lazy Nara" Inoichi joked.

"Shut up," Shikaku said and walked off.

With Naruto andIno

Naruto was with Ino and a man with white hair and a Konoha headband on his forehead training with swords.

"Man this is tough isn't it Naruto?" Ino asked panting on the ground turning to Naruto next to her.

"Yeah it sure is." He said panting also.

"Well you guys Kenjutsu isn't easy," the man said.

"What's Kenjutsu Mizuki-sensei?" Ino asked. The man slapped his forehead forgetting to tell them.

"Sorry I forgot to tell you that Kenjutsu is sword fighting. Theirs five different Jutsu styles. Genjutsu, Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, Kenjutsu, and Doujutsu. You'll learn them when you go into the ninja academy." Mizuki said.

"Ooooohhhhhh," Naruto and Ino said at the same time. Mizuki laughed and rubbed the back of his head.

"Good to see you guys survived your first day of training." Inoichi said look at Naruto and Ino at the ground.

"Hi daddy! What did the Hokage say? Can Naruto live with us?" Ino asked. Inoichi looked saddened and Naruto got the mesage.

"Oh...Okay I'll see you tomorrow Ino..." Naruto said with a sad face.

"Okay bye Naruo." Ino said and hugged Naruto. He unlocked his apartment and got into his pajamas and slept.

Next morning

Naruto woke up to the sun hitting his eyes. He groggily got up and went to take a shower. As he let the warm water hit his face he thought of why the Hokage didn't want him to stay with Ino. They were close friends so he didn't see a problem. He got out dried himself and dressed in a normal white shirt and jeans. He picked up his sword and went out going to the Hokage Mansion. He tried his best to ignore all the stares and looked to the ground. A few minuets later he came up to the Hokage's office and knocked on the door.

"Come in," he heard the Hokage say. Naruto opened the door and walked inside.

"Ahh, Naruto I'm glad to see your here. There's something I need to tell you," the Hokage said as Naruto raised and eyebrow.

"What is it Jiji?" Naruto asked.

"The Ninja Academy starts tomorrow at 8:00 am."

"Oh. Okay, but their is something I wanna ask you."

"Go on."

"Why can't I live with Ino?"

"Naruto you must understand I can't let you live with Ino for your own safety."

"From what!? I'm already beaten almost every day by the villagers... Please Jiji she's the only friend I have."

"I'm sorry Naruto. No matter how much I want to. I can't," the Hokage said with a sigh. Naruto walked out and slammed the door behind him.

"Oh Minato. Your boy is a lot like Kushina," the Hokage said to himself while looking at the face of the fourth Hokage.
