He's Awake

'Where am I' Naruto thought trying to open his eyes, they felt like weights. He felt something in his hand and on his arm. He cracked open his eyes. He was staring at a white ceiling. 'A hospital?' The blond turned his head the first thing he saw was dark blue, almost black, hair. 'Hinata?' She was sitting in a chair next to his bed and she was holding his had asleep on his arm. 'What happened?' "You worked yourself to much just like I warned you baka." "Who asked you, ya stupid fox?" Naruto grumbled. Just then he felt the weight on his arm disappeared.


Hinata was dreaming a vary good dream when she heard something. She heard two voices both sounded laced with power. One was a little gruffer and sent chills up her spine but the other was familiar but it also sounded like a wolfs howl. She opened her eyes and looked up. Naruto was staring at her. "N…Naruto-kun?" She asked taking her hand out of his. "Hinata-chan, where am I? What happened? Why am I here?" He asked taking her hand. "W…Well, your at the h…hospital in Konoha, y…you passed out after I…I found you, y…you had r…really bad internal b…bleeding." She said turning a deep shade of crimson.

"I'm sorry Naruto-kun, I need to go tell Tsunade-sama your awake." She pulled her hand from Naruto's grasp and walked out. The room felt strangely empty without her there. 'What am I going to tell them?' "How about the truth?" "They'll hate me thought…" "Kit, if they do we'll just leave, I'll help you and don't worry I wont hurt them unless I have to." "I hope we don't have to do that, I really hope we wont." He felt Hinata's chakra coming close along with another.


"I don't know what we can do with him Hinata, I mean he can't stay here but we can't just tell him to leave and if he stays he can't stay alone…I just don't know we'll have to see." Tsunade said as they neared Naruto's room. "So, you decided to join us did you?" She said smiling at the blond in the bed. "Ya, I figured you missed me. I know you but your name…?" He said smiling his foxy grin. "Tsunade" "Aaaaaa, yes know I remember, so how you been doing Baa-chan?" "Well, I've been really worried about you baka. Well, lets see what these things say about you." She indicated the machines.

"Everything seems to be ok, so Naruto you care to explain where you were for three years?" She said turning to see the blond slip his hand in Hinata's. "I'd rather explain to everyone, they deserve to know." He turned to Tsunade a sad, determined look in his blue eyes. "Ok, but it'll take a while to get them all together." The blond just smiled then before Tsunade could say anything did a summons. On the bed appeared 13 small foxes, "Go get the people Baa-chan tells you to." "Just tell them what you would any shinobi, Baa-chan." The foxes turned to Tsunade. "Go get Iruka, Kakashi, Jariya, the rookie nine, and guy's team." "Hie, Tsunade-sama." They disappeared. "Well, looks like I need to get dressed." Naruto said grinning.


"Everyone here?" Naruto asked from where he was sitting in a wheelchair in front of the group. "Ya…" Tsunade walked up. "Everyone, you where called here because Naruto wants to explain where he has been to all of you." She had their attention know. "Naruto…" Hinata pushed Naruto forward, he was still vary light. "Well, I don't know where to begin but I guess I should start with why the Akaski have attacked me so many times…" Naruto looked down at the group a sad determined look on his face.
