Disclaimer: If I owned Naruto. I would own the world. Sadly It'll never happen. D

On top of the hokage mountain stood a figure. His blood red cape fluttered in the wind. His blond hair flowing in the breeze. Cerulean eyes flared with determination. Black shirt and pants adorned with weights were on him. Fire blazed on the bottom of the shirt and pants. A taller man stood beside him. White clothes adorned with symbols of a fox shown all around his body. His blood red eyes showed excitement.

Memories flashed before the blond boy's eyes. Some sad and some happy.

Flashback

A blond haired boy shaking from pain was curled up in a tight ball because of the pain. He didn't understand why they all hate him. He was just a 4 year old wanting some food. He heard his name being called from afar. Footsteps drew closer but he ignored it. He just wanted the pain to go away. He just wanted everything to go away. When the man gently touched his forearm he looked up to a gentle but smiling face. "I won't hurt you. I'm not like those villagers who hit you for no reason. Do you want to come with me?" the man asked.

The boy nodded and followed the man. He was walking to a huge tower and they entered inside. He ushered the boy into a big office and motioned him to sit down in one of the chairs. "Naruto, do you want to know why the villagers hit you for no reason?"

"Yes please tell me! They always hit me when all I want is a little bit of food. Why do they hit me? I never did anything to them!" Naruto burst out crying. The man went up to Naruto and put a hand on his shoulder. The teary eyed boy looked up and saw that gently smile again.

"Naruto, do you know the tail of the 9 tailed kyuubi that attacked the village 4 years ago?" the boy nodded. "The truth behind that story is not what you believe it is. The kyuubi could never be killed because it used chakra as a life force. It would suck the chakra out of everything around it and it would aim it right back at Konoha. The 4th hokage knew this so instead of killing it he sealed it inside a boy. Can you guess who that is Naruto?" the 3rd asked.

"He sealed it inside me? Why? He must have had a good reason if he it was the 4th hokage."

"Ai, he did have a good reason. He didn't want to put a burden on anyone else's families. He couldn't live if someone's misery was caused by him. Don't take this the wrong way. Even though he sealed it inside you, you will have great power when you grow up.

"I'll be powerful? How can I be powerful at all if he's sealed inside of me?"

"The kyuubi will call upon you. When a great tragedy befalls on you he will call upon you to help you through that time. I know it seems out of character for him but he didn't attack Konoha just for the sake of destroying it. He came to kill Orochimaru because he was becoming too much of a threat to both ours and the demon's worlds. He came too close to immortality and that's why the Kyuubi came here. I unfortunately found this out after the attack and by then it was already too late.

"I found it peculiar for the Kyuubi to not use his full power on this village. It looked like he was looking for something but the villagers lashed out at him causing him to get angry and go on a rampage."

"For now Naruto do you want to stay with me so you won't get attacked?"

"Yes please! I want to become stronger then the 4th hokage. If you said he was the strongest hokage out there then I'll just have to prove you wrong. Besides I'll have the Kyuubi to protect me too! I'll become stronger then the 4th! The Hokage chuckled. He resembled the 4th a bit too much. But then again you couldn't blame him if he was like that. He was the 4th's son after all.

Flashback

A 7 year old Naruto stood shaking from nervousness. OK Naruto. You can do this. All you have to do is give her the flower and ask her to be your friend. He walked up to the girl and asked. "Hey my name is Naruto Uzumaki and I was wondering if you'd like to be my friend?" He held out the flower with a huge with a grin on his face. The girl took the flower and threw it at his face. "Why would I want to be friends with and ugly girl like you?" Naruto was shocked and ran away before they could see his tears. "Ino, that wasn't very nice." Her pink headed friend said. "hmph. I don't care. I've got my eyes on Sasuke anyways. Why would I want some ugly baka trailing me around?"

"Still, you should go apologize to that boy, and don't use the excuse that you're after Sasuke. We both know your just using him to hide your loneliness."

"Eh, he's gone now so can we get back to what we were doing?"

"Sigh, you'll never learn" The pink headed friend shook her head and resumed what she was doing.

Naruto was running as fast as he could. He didn't want them to see his tears. He didn't want them to see him hurt so easily. "kit." He heard someone and spun around to see who it was but no one was around him. "kit" He heard it again. "I must be dreaming. No one is around me and I'm voices. I'm going crazy." "You're not going crazy. I'm the Kyuubi you brat."

"The Kyuubi?" Then that means I'm going to be super strong right?!" He was jumping for joy and forgot about what happened not 2 minutes ago. "Yes I'll train you but on one condition." "What's the condition?" He was jumping because of anticipation. "The condition is that you eat ramen at least once a day and I'll train you to be powerful" Naruto nodded and they began their training straight after.

Flashback end

"Kit, just because I trained you doesn't mean you're the strongest yet. Your probably on the level of a high Jonin but don't show your true potential until you're in a life or death situation, or someone calls you weak. If you are called weak then you can bring ur fighting style up a notch, just don't show them your true power.

"Yes, oh powerful Kyuubi. Can I go now? I want to see old man Hokage first before I go to the academy.

"Just go brat. I'm going to go back to sleep. Summon me when you need me" The Kyuubi poofed out of existence and Naruto felt refreshed again. He jumped from building to building until he reached the hokage office. He looked inside and he saw the Hokage reading one of the perverted books the Kyuubi always reads and he had a grin on his face. " Oi! Old man hokage. Open up!" Naruto knocked on the window. The Hokage turned around and was shocked. "Naruto?!"

After a long explanation and a brief summary of what happened in the village while he was gone, Naruto set out to go to the academy to take the Genin test. He enrolled in the academy before the "tragedy" but went on a 6 year training trip with the kyuubi. The Hokage covered up for Naruto.

Naruto knocked on the door and Iruka opened it with a shocked surprise. "Hello, I'm here to take the Genin test." Naruto stated.

"Sorry but only those who have completed a term in the academy can take the test. "

"Throw me any academy question and I assure you. I'll be able to take this test. You might also want to check your list of students. You have one that's called Naruto Uzumaki." Iruka skimmed through the list and was surprised when he actually found the name. "I found your name but I still need you to answer some questions." Naruto nodded and he began. "Name what each Hokage was legendary for."

"The 1st Hokage, legendary for his use of the wood element. The 2nd Hokage, legendary for his use of the water element. The 3rd Hokage, legendary for his use of the earth element. Finally the 4th Hokage legendary for his use of the Hiraishin no Jutsu.

"Name the 5th shinobi countries.

"The land of Cloud, Earth, Fire, Wave and Wind.

"Finally, name the 3 types of Jutsu's and what their uses are for.

"Ninjutsu, used for attack or defense, Taijutsu, used for close ranged combat and Genjutsu used for paralysis or suicide to the enemy."

"Ok, I have one last challenge for you. For me to judge whether or not your strong or not I want you to face Sasuke Uchiha and show us your power. Let's do this outside." The class all walked outside with murmurs like " The new kid isn't going to stand a chance" " His costume is probably just for show" "I bet you he's just here to get his ass kicked."

Naruto smirked and took that as a sign to take this seriously. They headed into the clearing just outside the school and both participants took their stances. "Just because you're a newcomer doesn't mean you can beat me. I'm an Uchiha. No one matches us" Sasuke said smugly

"Just wait till I wipe that smug off your face" Naruto smirked. They heard begin and instantly Sasuke jumped back and went trough a series of handsigns. Katon, Goukakyuu no Jutsu, A huge fireball went straight at Naruto and engulfed him. "The match is over" Sasuke said smugly.

"Winner sasu.." Just then the fireball split open and Naruto stood like he wasn't hit at all. He went through handsigns and yelled Futon: Daitoppa, Sasuke was slammed into a tree and was knocked unconscious.

"Winner Naruto Uzumaki." Shocks were heard around the class and Naruto was handed a black headband, symbolizing him being rookie of the year."Ok, back inside class so I can tell you who your teams are. Naruto went over and gave Sasuke a hand. "Where the hell did you learn that technique?" Sasuke asked. Naruto smirked and said" I'll tell you some other time. Great match though. I never expected you to useKaton, Goukakyuu no Jutsu.

"You weren't going at full power were you?"

"Nah, if I was going at full power, you'd probably be dead. Don't take it offensive but let's just say I had a better teacher" Sasuke smirked signaling there were no hard feelings between them. They walked back to the class to see who they were teamed up with.

"What just happened? Sasuke just got his ass kicked and now they're best friends? How does that work?" Sakura asked.

"Don't ask me. I'm not a guy" Ino replied. Damn maybe there is someone hotter then Sasuke. Why does he look so familiar though? They walked into the class and got their seats.

"Alright here's your team roster. team 1 is… Team 7 is Sasuke Uchiha, the girls jumped with anticipation. Naruto Uzumaki, They were hoping to get on that team, and Ino Yamanaka. Your jonin sensei is Kakashi Hatake. Iruka heard a course of WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT! But continued anyways. Team 8 is Hinata Hyuuga, Kiba Inuzuka, and Shino Aburame. Your jonin sensie is Kurenai Yuuhi. Team 9 is still active and team 10 is Shikamaru Nara, Chouji Akamichi and Sakura Haruno. Your Jonin sensei is Asuma Sarutobi.

Everyone heard started crying because they weren't on Sasuke's team and the boys just sweat dropped.

A/N I'm back with another random fic on Naruto/Ino. Again this may seem out of the blue but I got an inspiration to right this. Hope you all like it. Oh and if you like this chapter at all please tell me in a review. Even a simple good job is ok. Advice is appreciated and also there would be no point in continuing a fic if you don't see any reviews.

Till next time!
