Disclaimer: Anything and everything Naru belongs to Kishimoto-sensei; which means characters, places, and all the flippin' awesome Justus are not mine. What do I own? My kickass plot tweaks that make the story better.

A/N: This story originally belonged to Mello's-Killing-Festival but they stopped writing it and so I decided to forcibly adopt it seeing as I never heard back when I asked to adopt it. The original story was called Naru's Betrayed. Also 'Tobi' is just Tobi nothing special

Summary: Naru and Sasuke have been together since there first chuunin exam at the age of 13, however shortly after Naru agreed to go on a two year training trip with Jiraiya. Sasuke promised to wait for her return but when Naru comes home she finds out Sakura is three months pregnant with Sasuke's child. What will Naru do now?

Rating: Rated "T" for language and possible violent and/or bloody scenes (I mean come on they are ninjas).

Warning: Obito is dead and Tobi is just a powerful moron in an orange mask.

Now for the changes to the story; the biggest change is Naruto is now Naru, all the other changes are 'cosmetics' and added details.

Age 13

Naru had just returned from retrieving Tsunade with Jiraiya. She was waiting outside the council room so that she could bring Tsunade to the hospital to take a look at Sasuke and Lee; finally after two hours the door opened.

"Shizune, head to the office and get everything in order." Tsunade ordered as she walked out of the council room. "It seems those old farts haven't done anything since sensei's death."

"Hai Tsunade-sama." Shizune said as she took off down the hall.

"Hey, Old Hag, you didn't forget your promise to help my friends did you?" Naru shouted.

"Brat!" Tsunade warned as a tick mark formed on her right temple, "Do you ever show respect?"

"Not really!" Naru replied with a cheeky grin and a shrug. "So are we heading to the hospital now?"

"Lead the way." Tsunade said with a sigh. Once there Tsunade headed to Sasuke's room where they found Sakura sitting beside his bed.

"Ohayo, Sakura." Naru greeted. "Has he woken up yet?"

"Naru" Sakura greeted, "No, and who's that behind you?"

"That's Tsunade-baachan," Naru said pleased, "I brought her back to help Sasuke. She's the best medic in the whole Five Great Nations."

"Naru, move out of the doorway so I can get in the room." Tsunade said, "Do you want me to help your friend or not?"

"Hai, hai." Naru said while moving to the side and Tsunade entered.

"You're Tsunade of the Legendary Sannin!" Sakura exclaimed in awe.

"The who of the what?" Naru asked confused.

"Didn't you pay attention in the Academy at all?" Sakura asked exasperated, "The three legendary Sannin are the strongest ninjas Konoha's history, Tsunade Senju, Jiraiya, and Orochimaru."

"Oh, guess I missed that lesson." Naru said, "Wait that pervert is that great!"

"Unfortunately," Tsunade said, "Now quiet brat I need to focus."

"Hai." Twenty minutes later Sasuke started to stir awake and Naru raced to his side.

"Hey Teme, how do you feel?" Naru asked in a concerned yet caring tone.

"How do you think I feel - like shit." Sasuke said.

"That's because you went after your brother when you were still recovering from Jiraiya's second sealing of the curse mark." Naru said, "What were you thinking?"

"Yeah Sasuke, do you know how worried we were?" Sakura asked in a motherly tone. "If Naru hadn't gone to get Tsunade-sama who knows how long you would have been out, and what possessed you to go after you brother when you know you're not ready yet?"

"I agree with Sakura," Naru said, "plus you know we promised to help you, what could have possibly been your reason."

"If you'd both stop nagging me I would say something," Sasuke said.

"Fine, explain." Naru said placing her hands on her hips.

"I was afraid he'd take you away from me as well," Sasuke told Naru, "I just couldn't stand the thought of losing you."

"That's so sweet." Sakura cooed.

"I'm glad you care for me so much," Naru said as she gave Sasuke a chaste kiss, "But I was with one of the Sannin so please don't put yourself in so much danger again because the same goes for me."

"My god you guys are so cute together." Sakura said, "But now that I don't have to worry about Sasuke possibly having a death wish I'll leave you two alone."

It took two weeks for Sasuke to get discharged from the hospital seeing as he had to have a psych evaluation to make sure he was fit for active duty. Once discharged Sasuke and Naru spent all their time together when they were not doing their chuunin duties; they would either train or hang out at each other's apartment, just watching a movie or making-out but never went farther than that.

After a few months Jiraiya returned from his information gathering trip and was currently sitting at Naru's apartment waiting for her to return; however the sight that greeted him when the door opened had him writing notes for his 'books'. After a couple minutes he cleared him throat to get the attention of the young couple currently pressed against the front door.

"Hey gaki when you come up for air I need to have a word with you." Jiraiya said, Naru and Sasuke disengaged from each other's faces. Naru was blushing a brilliant red color because of her embarrassment.

"Ero-sennin what are you doing here?" Naru asked, "I thought you were on and information gathering trip."

"I was," Jiraiya said, "but I got some information on the Akatsuki and decided to come back and discuss it with you, but you seem a little busy at the moment, hmm."

"Sasuke just got back from a two week mission," Naru said, "We were just catching up, so what was it you wanted to talk to me about?"

"I wanted to talk in private." Jiraiya said.

"He already knows about the Kyuubi," Naru said, "If that's what it's about."

"Fine, from the information I gathered about the Akatsuki it would appear they are not going to come after you for about 2 ½ to 3 years," Jiraiya said.

"Well that's good, I'll have plenty of time to train and get stronger." Naru said.

"I'll help you." Sasuke said.

"Of course you will." Naru said.

"That's the next thing I wanted to talk to you about." Jiraiya said, "I want to take you on as my apprentice and train you myself."

"Really?" Naru asked excitedly.

"Yes, but there is a catch," Jiraiya said, "I still have to work my spy network, which means that for the next two years we'll be away from the village. I'll give you a week to think it over but I need you answer by then."

"Hai." Naru replied and Jiraiya left.

… … .N. … …

It was three hours after Jiraiya had left; Naru and Sasuke were cuddling on her couch watching a movie.

"So do you think I should go?" Naru asked suddenly.

"I think it's a good opportunity," Sasuke said, "but really the choice is up to you, I'll support anything you choose."

"Even if I have to leave for two years," Naru asked, "What about us?"

"I'll wait for you to get back, just like you would do if it was me." Sasuke said, "Just think of it as an extended mission."

"Are you really alright with waiting two years?" Naru said, "It's an awfully long time for a ninja."

"I would wait for you for eternity." Sasuke said as he kissed her, "besides think of all the things you could learn for Jiraiya, ninja skills and otherwise."

"You've been near Kakashi-sensei too much," Naru said as she playfully pushed Sasuke away, "You turning into a perv, I swear if I leave and you start reading Ero-sennin's books in public I'll break every bone in your body."

"Will you kiss my boo-boos all better afterwards?" Sasuke asked kissing her causing Naru to break out in a fit of giggles.

-*- -*- -*- -*- N -*- -*- -*- -*-

At the end of the week Naru left with Jiraiya on her two years training trip after a big farewell party from her friends. She had a promise ring on a chain around her neck that Sasuke gave her as a parting gift as a reminder of his promise to wait for her to return to his side.
