I was doing paperwork when I heard a soft knock I was about to answer to 'come in', but they walked on in. I was surprised to see Naruto there.
"Hi Ji-san" I greeted "Hello Naruto-kun, what are you doing here?" "I wanted to tell you something and had a few questions." "What is it?" Jiji asked. "The orphanage is going to kick me out." Jiji looked upset so I decided to continue "Thought I don't really care had I not over heard that conversation, I was going to escape that place anyway." "Why would you do that, Naruto?" "Because... actually I'll tell you in a bit I wanted to tell you where I'm going." "Okay where are you going?" "First you are the only one who I want to know where I live unless I bring them there, okay?" "That's fine Naruto-kun" "I found a nice place for me to live in the Forest of Death" Jiji just stared at me for like 5 minutes trying to process what I had said till he finally responded. "But the Forest of Death is far to dangerous for a 2 year old child, surely you haven't been in there!" "Jiji hardly anyone ever goes into that forest which is great, the animals leave me alone most of the time and I'm more worried about villager attacks." Jiji looked worried and frustrated about me outsmarting him and being stubborn. "Fine, but you have to show me this spot of yours" "Okay, do you want to go now?" "Yes, lets go Naruto". I surprised Jiji when I put up my henge "Naruto when did you learn that?" "I taught myself by watching others, but I just started yesterday watched Academy classes till they let out then went on a shopping spree though I did the shopping in this henge after I figured out." By this time Jiji's jaw was on the floor "Jiji, close your mouth unless unless your trying to catch flies." He snapped his mouth shut.
"Jiji we're at the forest now." "Okay, show me your spot so I can visit" "Okay Jiji follow me" I dropped my henge then I lead gramps through the Forest of Death to my group of tall trees. When we got there I stopped which made Jiji stop and look around "Is this it Naruto-kun?" "Yep, follow me!" I walked up to my tree with a door shape hole covered up and uncovered it and went in and Jiji followed. "Sorry about the mess I left it all here then I went to you" "Its alright Naruto" "Hey Jiji?" "Yes?" "Can you get some sort of light source?" "Yes, I've got just the thing its a crystal you can put it on your ceiling and if you feed it chakra it lights up." "Sounds perfect! Thanks Gramps!" "Your welcome Naruto, is there anything else you need?" "No, but... actually can I have a hunting knife?" "I guess so, but be careful and what were you gonna say before that Naruto?" "I was gonna say, but I'd come by if I had thought of something else I wouldn't be able to get in a henge". "Hey Gramps, I have a question" "What is it Naruto-kun?" "Actually it's kinda silly, but I can't seem to get the bunshin to work, what am I doing wrong?" "Can you show me Naruto?". "Sure Jiji" I did the hand seal and send chakra but it doesn't do anything, but then Gramps spoke up. "Naruto you're not doing anything wrong, I think you just have to much chakra" "Can I fix it?" "No, like I said there's nothing to fix, but you could do a different type of clone." "Can you teach me that clone Jiji?" "Yes". I watched as Jiji made the 'ram' sign and channeled chakra through it "Naruto to do this make the 'ram' sign, but split your chakra into the clones these are called 'Shadow Clones'". " M'kay" I did what Jiji told me to do and after my 5th try I got it. Standing in front of me were 10 Shadow Clones, my smile got bigger when Jiji hugged me which I immediately granted and hugged him back. Once Jiji let go I said "Jiji" he looked at me letting me continue "You should come on my birthday so I can get settled and show you some cool stuff, okay?" He nodded, we said our goodbyes and waved. When I turned around I got to work and assigned jobs to my 10 shadow clones 1 clone got started on a garden, 2 went to get branches and vines to make- ladder, fence, and platform, 2 henged one adult version of the henge I used earlier and one of said henge went to get- a saw, a couple sets of hinges, some ninja weights, some baskets, and some rain barrels, 1 clone left to get fruits, veggies with herbs to make medicine, 1 went to the pond to get some giant leaves and wash them, 3 left to organize my stuff. While I took my new knife and hunted for huge rabbits that lived in this forest. When I was done hunting I had 4 rabbits, 3 huge birds, and a snake who attacked me thinking I was easy prey. I went back to camp with my catch in storage seals, I went to the stack of books I got and grabbed the ones on survival and meat preservation. By this time all the clones were done so I asked 2 clones to get fish and 1 clone to read the ones on survival, while I read the one on meat preservation.
I watched as Jiji made the ram sign and channeled chakra through it "Naruto to do this make the ram sign, but split your chakra into the clones these are called Shadow Clones" "M'kay" I did what Jiji told me to and after my fifth try I got it. Standing in front of me were 10 Shadow Clones, my smile got bigger when Jiji hugged me which I immediately relaxed and hugged back. Once Jiji let go I spoke "Jiji" I said, he gave me a look that told me to continue "You should come either in 2 or 3 weeks from now so I can get settled in and show you some cool stuff, K?" He nodded, we said out good byes and waved. When I turned around I got to work with the 10 clones, 1 clone got started on a garden, another 2 went to get branches and vines to make a platform fence. 2 henged one as the henge I used before and the other used an adult version of it they went to get a saw, a couple sets of hinges, some training weights, rain barrels, and baskets. 1 clone went to go get some produce to make medicines and poisons, 3 went to go organized the stuff I had brought before, 1 clone went to get some giant leaves and wash them in the pond, while I took my new knife and hunted for those huge rabbits. When I was done hunting I had 4 rabbits, 3 giant birds, and a big snake- who attacked me. I went back to camp with my hunted things in the seals in my wrist, I went to the stack of books I got and grabbed the ones on survival and meat so I asked 2 clones, one to get fish and the other to read the book on survival, while I read the one on meat. When the clones got back I had finished the book about meat preservation and my last clone finished the survival guide. I then had a clone saw a hole in the ceiling to the next level with one holding a vine tied together as a latter, 1 clone putting fruits in one basket and veggies in another. Once the clones finished the hole going up, which was opposite of the door, they secured the vine ladder, then 3 clones started on a platform on the newly made second floor in opposite of the front door, 1 clone was taking vines to the other trees, 1 clone that was going up went to the other trees to do the other trees, 1 clone was plucking feathers off the birds and skinning the rabbits so they can use them later and preserve the meat- then putting it on the vines to dry after washing the pelts. 2 put the snake in a different tree, and the last 2 were cleaning the meat, while I make a trip in my henge to buy another couple futons, buckets, salt, senbons, and vials, payed for it and left.
When I got back to my camp I was greeted to the sight of 10 shadow clones arranging logs and stumps as seats around a campfire area in front of the tree I was living in when they were done they sat on them and looked like they were thinking of something. I was curious of they were doing so I asked them "What are you doing?" One of them answered "Well since we were finished we were trying to think of what to do next." "I think you should have some fun before you run out of chakra." They all looked at me shocked. "What's the matter?" I asked the clones. "You mean we can do whatever we want?" "Stay in the forest and use henge so no one knows I'm in here except Gramps." They were upset that they couldn't leave the forest, but were excited anyway. "Yes! Lets go you guys!" one of them said. They were about to leave, but then I realized I wanted to play too so I took my normal henge and yelled, "Hey wait for me! And don't forget your henge!" Right after I said that they all henged into random children and one said, "Lets play tag!" And we played til it was probably 6 p.m. when they said they were running out of chakra so I said, "Good-Bye!" with a huge grin on my face. They dispersed one by one with 5 minutes in between, sometime during the 10 clones dispersing my henge faded so I started heading back.
