If you were here I'd never have a fear. So go on live your life- but I miss you more than I did yesterday! ~My Chemical Romance(Give 'Em Hell, Kid)

"It's finally the day. He should be back today." I said walking out of my apartment.

"Commoner... Can I go back to bed?" Ryota asked.

"Ryota, I know your excited about seeing Naruto-kun, you just don't want to show it because of your own pride and inner shyness." I said.

"Are you implying that I am a tsundere? If anything I AM A PROUD KAMIDERE! BECAUSE I AM KAMI~~~~!" Ryota said.

I sighed at Ryota's, well, Ryota.

'I wonder how much Naruto has changed over the years...' I thought.

"Oi, Commoner. I smell the Orange nincompoop." Ryota said sniffing the air.

My eyes widened as I looked at the large rabbit.

"Really?" I asked calmly.

"Yup, I know that stench of ramen and sweat anywhere." Ryota said.

"Well, we should be getting to the village gate, then." I said walking faster and faster.

"Well, if it isn't Akiko-chan." I heard a familiar male voice from on a roof next to me.

"Kakashi-sensei!" I exclaimed.

"It's good to see you." I said trying to smile, but could only get a smirk on my face.

He jumped down and I gave him a hug.

"I'm glad to see you back my cute little student!" he said giving an asumed smile.

"I'm suprised your not arrested for saying stuff like that Scarecrow sensei." Ryota grumbled.

"Nice to see you too, Ryota-chan!" Kakashi said.

"Chan?!" Ryota growled.

I stood silently as Ryota argued, and Kakashi was calm as ever making Ryota get gradually louder and louder.


"Oh really? I assume she's a rabbit, or is she another rodent?"


The arguing that used to not affect me was getting annoying.

Suddenly, a smile formed on my face.

"Boys, give me some peace and quiet. You two are causing a scene and it isn't pleasant." I said with a closed eyed smile letting out a cold killers intent. It was small, but enough to make the hairs on someone's neck raise.

"H-Hai!" they both said in unison, Kakashi easily masking his uneasiness.

"HELLLLLLOOOOOOO, KONOHA! YOU HAVEN'T CHANGED AT ALL!" I heard a voice that was easily recognizable yell.

"Naruto-kun." I said immediately running towards the voice.

I ran and saw him standing on top of a pole looking at the village.

"NARUTO-KUN!" I yelled.

He looked down and saw me.

"Aki-kun?" he asked.

I gave an awkward wave.

He jumped down and I calmly ran over to him and hugged him.

"I'm really glad to see you again." I said with my usual smirk.

"I'm glad to see you too, Aki-kun!" he said hugging me back.

"I think you've hugged her long enough, orange nincompoop." Ryota said.

"Well if it isn't the bunny. You've gotten bigger haven't you, Ryota-chan!" Naruto said with the sunny smile of his.

"Chan? AGAIN?!" Ryota growled.

"I see you've grown up, Naruto." Kakashi said walking up to us.

"Kakashi-sensei!" Naruto exclaimed letting me go.

"Yo." he said.

"Kakashi-sensei! I have something for you" Naruto said giving Kakashi the newest Icha Icha book.

"Show of hands! Who wants Ichiraku Ramen!?" Naruto asked walking quickly away.

'I've been practically living off of instant ramen for the past few years since Gunso-sensei can't cook to save her life...' I thought slightly sweatdropping.

"Can I recommend udon?" I asked trying to catch up with him.

"Screw that, yakisoba for the win, ya jerk!" Ryota said hopping trying to catch up.

"Oi! Naruto-niisan!" a kid yelled as we walked towards Ichiraku Ramen.

"Check this out! Ninja Centerfold!" he yelled.

The name gave me a small flashback and I quickly covered my eyes.

"Konohamaru, I'm not a kid anymore. You gotta work on other jutsu too, ya know." Naruto said.

I uncovered my eyes to stare in awe of Naruto.

'Did he actually mature? I never thought I would see the day...' I thought.


"Naruto-san..." I said with the closed eyed smile and cold killers intent.

He looked unsettled slightly.

"Maybe later, K-k-Konohamaru! I-I!" Naruto said stuttering.

"HOW DARE YOU DO THAT, NINCOMPOOP!" Ryota yelled kicking Naruto's face sending him into the dirt.

"YOU TRYING TO FUCK WITH MY SIGHT, ORANGEY?! GOD DAMN IT, ORANGEY!" Ryota yelled rubbing his foot into Naruto's face.

"Ryota, thats enough." I said smirking slightly at their shenanigans.

"That's enough with the emotional reunion. Kakashi..." Tsunade said walking up.

"Well, from here on out you two are going to be part of my team. Not as sensei and students, but as equals. Fellow Konoha shinobi." Kakashi said. He took out two bells.

"Now I want to see how much you two have grown. The rules are the same as last time. Attack as though you mean to kill or you'll never stand a chance." Kakashi said.

"PSHHHHH! HA! This'll be a piece of pie! I've gotten way stronger, I could get all of them easily on my own." Ryota said proudly.

"Ryota..." I said, shaking my head.

We all walked to Training Grounds 7.

"You can use whatever tactics you wish to take the bells from me. You have until sunrise tomorrow." Kakashi said.

"Brings back memories, huh, Aki-kun?" Naruto said.

"It does." I said.

"Oh, right. This was the site of your very first exercise as Team 7. Back then, we had Sasuke too, didn't we..." Kakashi said.


'The day he left...'

'I lost two important people.'




"Worthless... Just terrible..." I muttered now sitting on the ground.

"Ahem, anyway... Let's begin, shall we?" Kakashi said.

"Not gonna read this time around, Kakashi-sensei?" Naruto asked.

"Let's go." I said taking my sword out of its sheath.

"GET READY TO RUE THE DAY YOU WERE BORN, SCARECROW!" Ryota yelled quickly turning into me.

"I get the feeling that this time I'm going to have to make a more serious effort." Kakashi said, pulling up his headband to reveal his Sharingan eye.

Guess I might as well end it here.

Would you believe me if I told you I hadn't updated because Sachiko from Corpse Party didn't want me to?


Fine, I got obsessed with Dragon Ball Z, and I'm currently on Kai (Don't have time for filler) and well... You know how it goes.

Plus its the work that inspired Naruto, so, I felt like it was obligation to watch it. Now I'm addicted.

ANYWAY, Song of the Day, Distance by Nishino Kana Nightcore Ver.
