I am trying to update these more frequently, but it is hard to keep writing when you are busy all the time. Anyways here you go. Now this chapter, I made when I was feeling energetic, so thats why Naruto is on a constant sugar high in this chapter.
After that little incident last night when he crashed through Kurenai's apartment, Naruto was trying to find a way that he could fly without the use of the helmet. Mostly because it could be damaged too easily, and he didn't like the idea of crash landing everytime his helmet broke, so he was doing to try and find a way to make adjustments to the seals or to his clothes so that he wouldn't have to worry about crashing or breaking a flight pattern.
"Hmm, if I could add a secondary seal to the propulsion, that would act as a smaller steering thruster, maybe that would help stabilize my flight pattern...god I am starting to sound like Tony Stark." He said as he had stayed up all night thinking of ideas.
In fact the waste basket was full of discarded ideas that he decided were useless. He was back in what he liked to call his lair. Over the years since he had discovered the old comic book store, he had redecorated it with his inventions, clothes, and some seals. He was trying to find a way to make it more high tec, but it was a bit hard in a world that was a little bit technologically declined.
"Hmm...I wonder, if I could bring back some of the machines in the comic books...I could make a lot of money selling them...Oh! I could use the extra money! Maybe buy another house, because lets face it, where I currently live kind of sucks." He said as he thought to himself about what he might be able to reinvent that wouldn't be too complicated.
"Well, I can't think of anything now...maybe later, as for now, I need to get to the academy...But I'm so tired...and today is the day we meet our masters." He said as he walked over to his robot companion.
"Dummy...I need coffee." He said as Dummy splashed it in his face.
"...NOT what I meant Dummy." He said as the robot sagged down a little.
Naruto was considering selling dummy to make some extra cash, but despite all the mistakes the robot made, he did love the little thing to death.
"Look, just make a fresh pot, and see if you can find a way to give it a little kick...I'm gonna need it." He said as Dummy nodded and got back to work.
"Hmm, I know this is going to sound weird, but what should I wear today?" He asked as he looked at the assortment of clothes.
Meanwhile, Dummy was making Naruto's coffee extra special, especially for someone who had stayed up all night working.
A LITTLE BIT LATER
"Okay everyone take your seats and...Naruto are you okay?" Iruka asked his student as Naruto nodded fast.
"Yeah iruka sensei why wouldn't I be I feel great,why are you asking a question like that? Is something the matter because I feel better then I have in a long time, and I mean a really long time, even better then when I graduated, seems like so long ago, oh wait that was just yesterday, oh man I feel really energetic but I have no idea why, do you think its weird how stuff like that happens, I mean sure I drank coffee this morning but damn it has never done this to me! My eyes are moving so fast that I can see into the back of my skull and I can see my brain move! WOOOOOOOO!" Naruto said so fast that it scared everyone.
"Naruto...I'm asking if you're okay because you are walking back and forth...on the ceiling." Iruka asked as he was impressed that Naruto had mastered the tree walking exercise.
"More importantly, what was in that coffee you drank this morning?" Iruka asked as Naruto threw a travel mug at him.
"I don't know! Look for yourself!" Naruto said as he continued to pace up, down, across the ceiling and all around the room.
And the rest of the class hadn't even gotten there yet, Naruto had arrived thirty minutes early. Iruka took a look in the coffee Naruto was drinking, and frankly he couldn't believe what he found.
It looked like someone combined Honey stinger bars, with energy drinks, with highly caffeinated coffee, and finishing off with a shit ton of sugar, all in all, it was something that would keep you awake for days...it scared Iruka. Naruto hadn't acted this hyper in a long time. And he was hoping the rush would wear off soon.
"Naruto, why don't you go for a run around the village and be back in thirty minutes." Iruka said as Naruto saluted him.
"Okie dokie lokie! WOOOOOOO! I'M GONNA TEAR THE ROAD UP!" He yelled as he literally ran through the wall.
"...You know, its a good thing that that hole in the wall was already there from when I was practicing a jutsu last night." Iruka said glad that Naruto didn't really run into the wall.
"HEY! I'M NARUTO! WANT TO BE MY FRIEND?!" Naruto yelled as you could hear people screaming at the hyperactive teacher as he ran around the village.
"Oh Kami, I feel sorry for whoever has Naruto as a student." Iruka said as he looked at the rosters.
"Hmmm...not bad...not bad." He said as sat back down and drank his tea.
THIRTY MINUTES LATER
Naruto was sitting in the back of the room, but he still had a very wide smile on, and frankly it was unnerving as hell, it was like he was there to kill Batman. And it scared the hell out of everyone who sat next to him, even Hinata who enjoyed his enthusiasm was a little creeped out. And that was saying something. Plus he looked like he was still shaking in his seat, even though the sugar rush had worn down a little bit, he was still going nuts. Iruka was trying hard not to laugh at everyone looking creeped out.
"Okay Team assignments are..." He started off as the author decided to skip the first few teams because nobody cares about them.
"Team 7, Sasuke Uchiha, Kiba Inzuka, and Sakura Haruno." He said as Sakura cheered, and Kiba cursed his bad luck.
Team 8, Shino Aburame, Hinata Hyuuga, and Naruto Uzumaki." Naruto smiled even wider and was jumping up and down.
Hinata blushed a little bit and...Shino was looking at a bug.
"Team 9, Ino Yamanaka, Choji Akimichi, and Shikamaru Nara." He said as they all let out their little ways of disapproval...except Choji who was eating.
Insert a long speech about making the village proud, and blah blah blah, on to the meeting of the senseis.
"Team 8...you're with me." A woman with long black hair said as Naruto recognized her.
"HEY IT'S KURENAI!" He said as he was suddenly looking down at her from the ceiling, as she was a little scared that he was acting like that.
"Remember me?! I crashed through your apartment last night!" He said, as Kurenai could have sworn his pupils were dialating to the size of pins.
"Er...Yes...all of you come with me." She said as she was feeling very uncomfortable right now.
AN HOUR LATER
"OKay, I want you all to introduce yourselves...except Naruto since he obviously told us everything about himself within the first twenty minutes of me coming to pick you all up." She said as Naruto grinned.
"And that is what happened when I accidentally crashed through their apartment!" Naruto said as he finished his story about how he met Kurenai, and frankly his team mates couldn't believe him.
"Sensei...that isn't true is it?" Shino asked as he couldn't believe such a ridiculous story.
"I wish it wasn't...but it is." She said as Naruto suddenly stopped and turned his head so quick, you could have sworn you heard his neck break.
"Hey! Come to think of it, why are you our sensei? And why am I on your team? Is there something special about us? Did I impress you? Are we going to be the best squad there ever was?!" Naruto asked in the same hyped up tone.
"To answer your questions, You're on this team because the hokage figured you would be necessary, yes there is something special about all of you, and yes you did impress me last night, and I don't know about being the best squad." Kurenai said as she was honestly telling the truth.
She honestly wanted the Uzumaki kid because of what he did last night, especially with how he captured Mizuki, sure it was on accident, but she could tell that he had wicked potential.
"Well back to introductions...My name is Kurenai Yuhi, my likes include Genjutsu, books and nice relaxing days, dislikes include perverts, rapists and those who believe women are weak, my dream is to become the best genjutsu master in the world." She said as Hinata went next.
I would like to point out that I am not writing the stuttering because its time consuming, so just imagine her with it.
"My name is Hinata Hyuuga, I like flower pressing, cinammon buns, and training, my dislikes include those who look down on me, and those who insult others hard work, my dream is to...is to..." She trailed off as she was too shy to say it.
"My name is Shino Aburame...likes...insects...dislikes...loud people...dream...that is for me and me alone." He said keeping it short and sweet.
"Well, thats everyone." She said as Naruto spoke up.
"WHAT ABOUT ME?!" He said as he was still riding a sugar rush.
"You already gave us the long explanation on the way over here...and what the hell did you drink this morning?" She asked knowing this was not the way she expected him to act after last night.
"Some good stuff! Well, I guess if we're done, I'll go and train, ALLONS-Y!" He yelled as he took off in a cloud of smoke.
"...Next time either one of you sees him, inform him that we are having a test tomorrow." Kurenai said as they both nodded.
"What did I get myself into? Please tell me this isn't how he usually acts."
