Rindiny: Now let's go! On with the story! Enjoy people. :D

Rindiny: OH WAIT! I have something to say. My inspiration for this story are my reviewers for commenting and most especially, on "inugirl24" and "Kaila-mina"on Deviant art. com :D Ok, let's continue.

Morning struck onto and brightened the Hidden Leaf Village. Everybody had be dormant in their sleep. Although, as soon as the sun brighten and popped up to the sky at it's fullest, the entire village was already busy. Naruto, was at Ichiraku eating ramen as usual. Slurping it down and gobbling it up as if somebody would take it from him, he exclaimed through slurps. "Give me ...four more ...and I'll be full and satisfied!"

With Hinata however. She was at the training grounds. She had fallen asleep there from training so hard. Then, suddenly, appeared a Bounty hunter ninja and two other ninja's that had their faces covered. The ninja said nothing, as his hands suddenly then started to make hand signs for a mysterious justu. As he made the hand signs he started to speak as he did so. " Ushi (ox), tora (tiger), ne(rat), mi(snake), u(hare), saru(monkey), inu(dog), i(boar), tori(rooster), uma(horse), saru(monkey), mi(snake), ushi(ox), hitsuji(ram), tatsu(dragon), u(hare), mi(snake), ne (rat)... TORA (TIGER)!" When he finished making the signs, he called the name of the jutsu and performed it. "AGE CHANGE JUTSU! 4 years!" As he said this Hinata was suddenly covered in a white puff of smoke. "There... that should distract that knucklehead until he comes and wants his friend back... This jutsu could last as long as we want it to. And until then, that brat has to come to us in order to change her back. Then... we'll be able to get the Kyuubi's powers from him." He said chuckling deviously as he told his plan to the other ninja's beside him. They jumped away leaving an unconscious (she was already asleep anyway. lol) Hinata laying there.

Kurenai had decided to go to the training grounds with Kiba, Akamaru and Shino. "I wonder if Hinata's already there. I always see her training her ass off. She's got to take a break some time." Kiba said. Akamaru loudly barked in agreement.

"All her work is paying off, you remember that time when she fought that gigantic bee back when we tried to find the bikochu beetle?" Shino reminded him.

"Ohhh.. right... but still! She mastered something and made her own jutsu, but come on. She needs a little break." Kiba said.

"Quiet down you two. Enough with your arguing... Hinata has already advanced that much. She never used to train so hard like she does now." Kurenai said.

"Yeah! I can tell it's because of Na-" He stopped there. "...I can smell Hinata at the training grounds... But something doesn't seem right..." Kiba said sniffing the air. Akamaru barked and yipped, he suddenly jumped off of Kiba's head and started to run to the training grounds. "Hey! Akamaru! What's wrong?" Kiba called. The whole group ran and followed him. And they saw a body laying on the grounds near one of the poles. Akamaru sniffed the body and barked up at Kiba.

"Huh? What's a little girl doing here?" Kurenai said bending down and looking at her, and was shocked to see who it was. "Hinata!"

"What? How is that Hinata?" Kiba said.

"Some kind of jutsu might have been performed for this." Shino said.

"I don't know. Let's get her comfortable." Later the little ninja awoke and she changed into a black T-shirt and some ninja pants as well as ninja sandals. (Sort of like Awakened Hinata is dressed, but she's a mini version. :3 )

Kurenai decided they should skip the training for some other day and just go to Ichiraku's. When they got there, they already saw a Naruto already done with his 3rd bowl.

"Hello, Naruto," Kurenai said as she seated herself next to him. As well as Kiba and Shino. Akamaru perched onto Kiba's head like always.

"Hi, Kurenai... Sensei! Shino...! " He said slurping up his ramen into his mouth unknown that a little ninja he knew was on her lap, looking at the Chef. "Kiba and Akamaru."

"Well, what brings you here?" He asked as he turned to look at her and notice a little girl on her lap.

"Huh? Who's that? I never knew you had a kid. Hey- She looks a lot like Hinata!" Naruto pointed out as he looked at her, the small frail girl turned and saw a very close Naruto to her face and backed her head away.

"That IS Hinata! Idiot!" Kiba said growling.

"W-whaaaaaat!" Naruto yelled almost choking on his Ramen. "B-but! B-but! That's not possible!"

"We don't know... we found her in the training grounds like this and took her with us." Shino muttered looking down to little Hinata.

"four years old...or maybe five... Hiashi always thought of her as a weak child...If I hand Hinata over in this condition, I'm sure he doesn't want to take care of her the state she's in."

"Hinata is not WEAK! Grhng...If only that old man can see how a great ninja she's become!" Naruto said defending the little ninja.

"I think us as a team, attest to that." Kiba said, Akamaru whimpered.

"I don't think Hinata would be able to take such strict training from her father. When she was little, he had placed very strict rules... And since when she had fought with Neji... And how you encouraged her... she actually got more confidence." She said. Naruto calmed down a little bit and placed a sad look. He remembered how Neji had told her she was a failure. Suddenly he tensed up again. Neji.

"Don't worry, I'm not planning on handing her over to Hiashi... I'm going to have to tell him what happened and put her under someone Else's care until then... Even though, Hiashi has got a little soft on Hinata since the time from the bikochu beetle. I still don't trust him enough. Especially her sister Hanabi who would then probably start to fuss on how Hinata is getting more attention now that she's little again." Kurenai said.

"Hey- Uh... How 'bout I take care of her, I mean... I haven't been getting missions lately... and.. I've never taken care of a kid before but- Perhaps I could, you know. Care for her?" Naruto asked scratching the back of his head.

"That'd be great Narut-" Though she was cut off by Kiba.

"He can't even take care of an ant! Come on! Are you sure you know a little bit of basics of taking care of a child? You've got no responsibility! Especially for an arrogant kid like you!" Kiba said.

"And what's that supposed to mean? I can take care of Hinata! I was able to keep myself alive!" Naruto said.

"Yeah! With Ramen! The moment you start to feed her Ramen she'll start to be more like you! Ok, listen, Kids are just like little puppies! You can't just kick a dog and then expect it to come to you! Hinata here is fragile. Well like Akamaru for example, me and him make a pretty good team. He's pretty strong for a little dog." Kiba said, Akamaru was silently smiling however. He barked.

"Don't compare that mutt of yours to Hinata! Hinata is much more strong than that dog! Without you and those freaking dog pills or whatever you give him. He's defenseless! Since when I battled you and that dog, one single punch you gave him, and he was already down to the count!" Naruto countered.

"Why you-!" Kiba said angered.

"Just leave her with Naruto. He's a knucklehead. But he's not that brainless." Kurenai said. Naruto grinned a proud smile. His face clearly said, 'Hah! And what Kiba!'

"Alright!" Naruto said as he finished his bowl of Ramen and got up from his seat. He held his arms out to Hinata who just stared at him. She looked up at Kurenai. He felt the vibe and knew then she was scared of him.

Naruto was surprised, and suddenly tensed on the inside and dropped his arms slightly. Kurenai saw his hurt expression, and knew why. She had heard about the boy with a demon inside of him. The jinchuriki (idk spelled right) of the Nine-Tailed Fox. The one who everyone shunned from society because he had some demon. Hinata then looked back at Naruto and looked at him as if she knew him.

"You look like that... boy.." Hinata said looking at him more closely. Naruto suddenly looked up, his face looked hopeful. "..." She kept her stare on him. 'My name is Naruto Uzumaki! I'm gonna be the Hokage one day! Remember that!'

"Naruto.. Uzumaki...?" She said.

"That's me!" Naruto said giving her his famous grin.

"I don't understand. You were smaller.. How did you grow so fast..?" Hinata asked curiously. Naruto, Kiba and Kurenai laughed. Shino only smiled.

"You knew me?" Naruto asked. "Since when..?"

"You were fighting with.. those three boys.. I thought..." Suddenly she had a sad face, like she was about to cry.

"Hey! Hey! Hey! No crying! You have to be strong Hinata! Whatever happened in the past is over. I'm alive and well aren't I?" Naruto said grinning.

"Yeah... alive and more rebellious..." Kiba muttered.

"Watch it Kiba! I'm about to wipe that smirk off your face!" Naruto said glaring at his team mate. Then suddenly he changed his glare to a happy smile and looked at Hinata. "Come on Hinata! Let's go!" Naruto said holding out his arms. He grabbed her from her waists and held her in his arms.

"That's actually kind of cute.." Kurenai said handing Hinata to Naruto to carry.

"Awww shucks! She's so small! Look at those tiny little hands! And those tiny fingers! Heh heh heh!" Naruto said with his foxy grin. He was carrying Hinata with left arm and holding her left palm in his right one. Her hand was so soft. She wasn't that heavy but at the same time she was. But to Naruto she seemed light.

"Naruto, take good care of her. This is your mission for right now. Protect her... Don't leave her out of your sight..." Kurenai sensei said whispering the last part. "What was that?" Naruto said not quite hearing the last parts she whispered. "Nothing.. just go and keep her company. You're actually gonna LOVE her." "You can count on me Kurenai!" Naruto said grinning.

"And make sure you keep her entertained! Don't, and shes going to be bothering you all day!" Kiba said.

"Hinata is not like that. She actually waits for the person to decide whether they want to play with her or not. Really... she's had no time to play in her childhood..." Kurenai said sadly.

Naruto then looked over at Hinata with a sad stare. She reminded him when he was much smaller and had no time to play. Because he had no friends.

"Don't worry Hinata! You're safe with me!" Naruto said. "But... Kurenai... what do I do with her now?" Naruto asked.

"Well.. I guess, you can just- um, Well, Naruto, I don't know what to tell you other than just babysit her until we find the culprits. I'll have a word with Tsunade to see what we should do." Kurenai said.

"What about us sensei?" Kiba barked.

"Well, you three just go train or something." Kurenai said. "While I talk with the Hokage." The 4 nodded their heads.

"Well! Let's go little Hinata! To my house!" Naruto said already running and leaving a trail of dust as he did.

"He won't last even an hour if Hinata goes and get's lost. I bet my money on that." Kiba said. Akamaru barked.

"If she doesn't get lost for an hour that'd be a miracle..." Shino commented.

"If you boys don't mind. I'm headed to Tsunade. See you later. And when I come back can one of you go and tell him to meet at the training grounds, I want all you three to be there as well." Kurenai then bounded off and jumped from building to building over to the Hokage's tower.

'Naruto's House:'

"Well! Make yourself at home. It's not much, but it's something!" Naruto said putting her down on the floor so she can walk around. "Naruto-sensei-"

"First things first! I'm not your sensei! Second of all are you hungry or anything?" Naruto asked, Hinata shook her head. "No... B-but...Naruto-sensei." "Well, if you need me! I'll be in my room! And I'm not your sensei! Got it?"

Hinata looked around the place and wondered around. She sat on a chair nearby and just stayed there, and after 13 minutes she decided to go and ask Naruto if she could play.

"Naruto-Sensei..." Hinata said. "I told you. I'm not your sensei! How many times do I have to tell you!" Naruto yelled from his room. He was getting a little annoyed. He was looking over some scrolls the old pervert had given him to study.

"..." She whispered something Naruto couldn't make out, backing away a little and bowed, she walked out of his room. Suddenly, he felt guilty for yelling at her. She was still young and had a lot to learn. This reminded him of his childhood.

"Umm.. Hinata.." Naruto said calling her back again. He was sitting cross legged on his bed thinking. The sun shining through the windows. Hinata walked in slowly into the room, her head looking at her feet as she came in.

"I'm.. going to go and train in the training grounds. I you to.. well.. you know.. be good while I'm gone." Naruto said looking at her with intent eyes.

Hinata looked up slightly and back down closing her eyes. "..Y-yes..." She said trying hard not to say Naruto-Sensei. She felt like crying but couldn't. She couldn't risk crying in front of Naruto. If she did she thought he would scold her and call her a failure, like her father did for showing such weakness.

"Come here for a second.." Naruto said, suddenly she got nervous. She walked slowly over to close to the bed. Naruto picked her up, he had a blank face which was scaring her. He placed her in between his legs and looked down at her. She looked forward frighteningly. Shaking. "W-why are you shaking?" He asked with a concerned face.

"C-can I come...?" She said as she gulped holding in tears. Naruto closed his eyes, Raising his fists in the air. Hinata held onto his shirt prepared to get hit, a hand over her mouth to prevent her from crying out. But instead of a punch, it was a gentle hand over her head. She opened her eyes in shock and heard Naruto say. "Don't cry Hinata! It's okay to feel sad. You can come. As long as you stick with me. I don't want you getting hurt now! I need to keep you safe! I told Kurenai I would!" His left eye opened as he looked down at her with his famous grin.

She looked up at him and saw him grinning. And suddenly, made her feel like smiling too.

"Let's go." Naruto said picking her up and placing her down to stand on the floor. He stood up from his bed and stretched his arms and back. "URghh... That felt good. Alright! Let's move out!" Naruto said holding her tiny hands in his big ones, and went to go outside.

'Tsunade's Office'

"So yes, I'm not sure who the work of it is. But they've managed to change Hinata into a four year old." Kurenai, she had explained the story of Hinata.

"It must be the work of some S-class bounty hunters no doubt. I wonder why they turned Hinata into a four year old and just left her there. This must be a plan to throw us into a circle!" Tsunade said.

"But... Where is Hinata now? And who is taking care of her?" Shizune asked. Holding her pig in her arms.

"...Naruto.." Kurenai said.

"NARUTO! THAT BRAT! Kurenai! How can you leave such a task for Naruto!" Tsunade said. "That kid doesn't know a single thing about caring for a child!"

"Who else was I supposed to put her with? Hiashi would surely be frustrated in taking care of a little child. And everyone else is busy at the moment." Kurenai said.

"True... but still... I don't trust that kid to be taking care of her, especially if he doesn't even know how to take care of one! Did you at least tell him the basics? Please tell me you did." Tsunade said.

"Well... not really-"

"WHAT! *HUFF* Send somebody to get Naruto in here! Please!" Tsunade yelled. "Shizune! Go get Naruto!" Tsunade barked.

"And get Kiba and Shino. Please. They need to know what about this as well. Just in case Naruto is unable to care for Hinata and for emergencies one of the two will." Kurenai said.

"Right away!" Shizune said running out of the office in search of the ones she would be looking for.


Naruto was just walking around the village with Hinata, he was still holding her hand. He didn't want her to get lost. "I forgot where we were going. Hmmmm..." He grumbled lowly.

"W-wasn't it... the trainig grounds..?" Hinata said in her soft kid-like voice.

"Oh yeah! You're so smart Hinata!" Naruto said grinning. She blushed from the compliment but smiled looking away from his stare.

"Right! Let's-!" He stopped when he heard his name being called.

"OI! HEY! NARUTO!" It was Kiba and he was running torwards them along with Shino.

"What's up?" Naruto asked.

"Well we just wanted to talk to you about- WoahoHO! Holding hands huh? I see what's goin on!" Kiba said smirking.

"Huh? What's wrong with that? It's just so she wont get lost." Naruto said.

"God you're so dense!" Kiba said.

"We just came to help you with Hinata." Shino said.

"Oh! Hinata? Well, I guess you can- Wait. Where's Hinata? Where is she! She was right here with me!" Naruto panicked. Looking all around for Hinata including under rocks.

"What! She right here you idiot!" Kiba said, Hinata was behind Kiba, she was playing with Akamaru.

Naruto sighed in relief. "Geez! She scared me there!" Naruto exclaimed finally relaxing.

"Well! She's pretty busy playing with Akamaru! I think it's about time Akamaru had a break too." Kiba said putting his hands in his pocket. Shino and Naruto laughed as they played. But the laughter was soon interrupted when they heard someone yelling.

"Kiba! Shino! Naruto!" It was Shizune, and she was running towards them.

"Shizune? What's the matter..?" Shino asked.

"Naruto! Where is Hinata?" Shizune asked. Naruto looked behind him, Hinata held Akamaru in her arms comfortably.

"So what Kurenai said was true... Naruto! Shino! Kiba! We have to report to Tsunade immediately!" She exclaimed.

"What? Granny? Why?" Naruto asked.

"Just come! She has something to tell you." She said already was jumping to the building leaving Naruto and the rest standing there in confusion.

Naruto grabbed Hinata who she let go of Akamaru to jump onto Kiba's head, and they jumped to the Hokage's domain.

'Tsunade's Office'

"Where are they?" Tsunade yelled.

"Please... calm down.. They should be here any minute-" And at that moment Shizune entered, along with Kiba and Shino.

"And where is Naruto?" Tsunade said. At that moment Kiba and Shino moved out of the way so Tsunade would be able to see. Naruto came in with Hinata walking, hand in hand.

"Hinata..." Tsunade said taking a look at the little girl.

"How did this ever come to happen..." Tsunade said running a hand through her hair. "Nobody was with her at the time?"

"No Granny! Kurenai, Shino and Kiba just found her there." Naruto chimed.

"You idiot! You don't even know the basics of caring for a child and you take responsibility for her and take her under your wing?" Tsunade yelled.

"Hey! Even if you would be able to care for a child, you'd have much to many paperwork! At least I have time for Hinata!" Naruto said.

"WHAT DID YOU SAY!" Tsunade yelled getting up from her seat. Hinata hid behind Naruto in fear. This lady was scary. "I wouldn't have time for children, I am a Hokage! And if YOU'RE going to be caring for her at least let me tell you the basics! So be quiet!"

"Humph... Pipe down the yelling! You're scaring Hinata!" Naruto yelled back.

"Alright alright." Tsunade said, finally she sat down. "I'll be telling You, Kiba and Shino. Just in an emergency, if Naruto is unable to care for Hinata Hyuuga."

As she explained much to Naruto's shock for one particular thing. He was interrupting the whole explanation. "Naruto! If you don't mind! FOR THE LAST TIME! SHUT UP!" Tsunade yelled.

"Alright alright! Granny!" Naruto said crossing his arms and pouted.

"As I was saying! You three will have to take responsibility for the child! And when she has to take a shower-"

"We hand her over to uh...Kurenai!" Naruto said. Tsunade was irritated, she tried hard not to punch Naruto in front of Hinata.

"Naruto-!" Tsunade started. "I-I can... s-shower b-by myself..." Hinata said.

"Oh! I forgot! She was taught this.. well... I guess that's solved." Tsunade said forgetting her anger immediately whe the little girl spoke.

"Granny-" "DON'T CALL ME THAT!" Tsunade scolded to Naruto.

"Well, Ms. Grumpy Granny, what happens when we find the culprit?" Naruto asked.

"Grr.. Wait a second, hold your horses. "We"? No Naruto, you're staying to care for Hinata, whether you like it or not you're not going and endangering Hinata's life. And when it's time for you to help us, well, it's when I order you to go. Got it?" Tsunade said.

"We wouldn't want any misfortunes happening because of you. Just keep Hinata safe is all we ask." Shizune said.

Naruto grunted and grumbled. But he nodded. Hinata looked up at him and made a sad face. Suddenly Naruto put a hand on Hinata's shoulder.

"Yeah! I promise on my headband I'll keep Hinata safe! Believe it!" Naruto grinned.

"Well... I leave her in your hands, Naruto, Kiba, Shino." Tsunade said.

"Well... What exactly do we do now?" Kiba asked.

"Well! Let's go train!" Naruto said.

"Keep a close eye on Hinata! We wouldn't want anything to happen to her. I'll see you four when I have any information regarding the culprit." Tsunade said smiling. The trio nodded. "Right!"

"I think i'll keep an eye on Hinata once in a while too." Kurenai said. "Just to make sure everything is in order."

Naruto, Hinata, Shino, Kiba and Akamaru left to the training grounds.

"We're here!" Naruto exclaimed.

"No duh! Where are we? At your house?" Kiba remarked.

"Grr!" Naruto growled at him.

"Don't start with him Kiba." Shino said.

"Yeah! What's he going to use? Sexy no Jutsu? Peh.. I have no time for runts like him." Kiba said smiling.

"Hah! You know well I beat you in the Chunnin exams! I can beat you again!" Naruto said smiling.

"Like I said, I have no time for you! Let's just practice our new jutsu's on each other or something." Kiba said.

"Hinata. Sit here. This training could get intense... And if you're in the way, you might get hurt in the process." Shino said. Naruto, Shino, Kiba and Akamaru started to train together.

"Eat this! RASENGAN!" Naruto yelled as he used his blue sphere and it exploded near where Kiba was. And he flew to a tree nearby.

"Whoa! That's some powerful stuff!" Kiba said. "YOU ALMOST KILLED ME!" Kiba yelled.

"Well, SORRY!" Naruto said.

Hinata was seated there. Watching them sadly as they trained. Akamaru walked over to her and barked. She pet him on the head and smiled sadly. Akamaru whimpered and sat down next to her.

"Hey.. Naruto.. Hinata seems kind of lonely over there. Why not... you know. Ask her to train with us. I mean. Remember what Kurenai said.." Kiba said as he looked at Hinata.

Naruto sighed and walked over to her.

"...Hey... Hinata... You want to um... train with us..?" Naruto asked.

She shook her head, as if hiding what she wanted.

"Are you sure?" Naruto asked. She nodded. "Well.. if you wanna train with us, you're welcome to." Naruto said, as he ran back to Kiba and Shino.

"What happened? I thought you were-" "She didn't want to.." Naruto cut Kiba off.

"What? Huh... Well.. That's Hinata for you." Kiba said shrugging. Shino looked at Hinata suspiciously. "She must be hiding something for her not to come and train with us." Shino said. He already knew why but decided to play it low for a while.

"Huh... beats me. Let's just continue." Kiba said, they continued training. Unaware of somebody sneaking up behind Hinata.

"BOO!" Somebody yelled really loud and scared little Hinata and making Akamaru whimper and jump in fright. Hinata the moment she was scared, already she started shedding tears and sobbing.

"Oh my gosh! I didn't mean to make you cry! I just wanted to-" "Ino!" Naruto yelled as he, Kiba and Shino ran over to Hinata.

"Why'd you have to scare her! She's fragile!" Kiba said.

"Why'd you scare Hinata?" Naruto said as he placed his two hands on Hinata's shoulders and tried to calm her down.

"Hinata? What? That's Hinata?" Ino exclaimed in shock. She looked at the little girls face and recognized it.

"Yeah! Somebody turned her into a four year old! We're just babysitting right now until they find the culprit!" Kiba said.

"Whoa! This happened today?" Ino asked. Shino nodded.

"Hey! It's okay! Come on! Please! Stop crying! Or you'll make me cry!" Naruto said, he was actually sniffing.

"Oh come on Naruto! You can do better than that! You're such a dope!" Kiba said.

Naruto rolled his eyes and held his arms out to Hinata awkwardly and held her in his arms. Her head was buried in his chest, she was still crying from the fright Ino gave her.

"Damn Ino! You must've given her a trauma!" Kiba exclaimed. "You scared Akamaru too!" Kiba said as he saw Akamaru shaking a little.

"I said I was sorry!" Ino said. "Naruto, if you want to calm her down, I suggest giving her more reassuring words. Like, i'll protect you, or I'm here. Come on! Haven't you cared for a child before!" Ino whispered.

"Good grief! Am I the only one who doesn't know!" Naruto exclaimed.

"Quiet down. You'll make it worse." Shino said. Naruto glared at Ino for making her cry in the first place.

"You're not going make a very good father Naruto..." Ino said with her eyes closed and a frown on her face. She really thought he was that dense.

"I so am! And the best Hokage too!" Naruto exclaimed.

"Naruto! Shh!" Kiba exclaimed.

"Alright alright..." Naruto said. He blushed at he was about to do.

"It's okay Hinata. I'll protect you from big monstrous Ino. Nothing is going to harm you." He had to smile at the Ino part. Ino just glared at him.

"Hey, you were the one who scared her in the first place." Kiba whispered. "It's not his fault for saying you're an evil monster."

"Shut it Kiba.." Ino said. Kiba just shrugged and grinned. Shino just shook his head and Akamaru just jumped on Kiba's head. Hinata's sobs started to die down.

Soon enough she was silent. Naruto was worried now, he looked down as she stayed motionless in his arms.

"Hinata?" Naruto said in a panicked voice.

"She's sleeping you idiot. Your smell must have put her to sleep." Kiba laughed.

"For your information, I smell like fresh oranges." Naruto countered.

Akamaru barked in agreement. "I never said you smelled bad, did I?" Kiba smirked. Naruto stayed silent and glared at him. Ino had left a few hours later, Shino had already gone home by then. It was a long day and the sun was going down, revealing a beautiful sunset in the distance.

"Well. Might as well take Hinata to Ichiraku's to eat. Then home to sleep." Naruto said with Hinata still in his arms sleeping.

"Yeah. Me and Akamaru might as well join you maybe?" Kiba asked.

"Yeah sure, do whatever you want. I don't mind." Naruto said. They walked to Ichiraku's place and sat there. Naruto held Hinata like a protective father as he sat down.

"What's this now Naruto? Having children at such an early age?" Ayame teased.

"What! Hey! I'm too young for that stuff!" Naruto blushed.

"I'm just kidding Naruto, but who is your little friend anyway?" Ayame asked.

"This is Hinata." Kiba said.

"Hyuuga? Isn't there another Hinata out there?" Ayame asked.

"Well, this is that same Hinata but... she was changed into a four year old." Kiba said.

"Well. I know what'll wake her up." Ayame said. "Cinnamon rolls. She loves those." Ayame said.

"Well, get her that, and I'll have the usual!" Naruto said.

"I'll have that too. If you don't mind." Kiba said.

"Coming right up!" Ichiraku exclaimed. After a few minutes their food was served.

"Hey... hey.. Naruto. Wake Hinata up." Kiba said.

"But she looks so comfortable there." Naruto said. "I don't want to disrupt her sleep! When you gotta you gotta!" Naruto said.

"Oh for crying out loud." Kiba said. Kiba shook her awake. "Hinata. Hinata, wake up." Kiba said. Hinata opened her eyes and looked around.

"Cinnamon rolls! Don't you want them?" Ayame said. Hinata looked up and nodded.

"Well, let's get yah comfy!" Naruto said. He sat her down on a chair next to him and moved the plate with Cinnamon rolls on it to Hinata.

"Well! Let's eat." Naruto exclaimed. He picked up his chopsticks and broke them in two, then started to slurp down his Ramen.

"Man... You're an expert on eating that stuff. How don't you choke while putting that much in your mouth?" Kiba said as he ate his. Ayame laughed.

"Well, when he eats this every single day of his life, he has to be a proffesional in eating Ramen!" Ichiraku exclaimed making everybody laugh. Naruto just grinned. After he was done with the noodles he was gulping down the liquid.

"Ahhh..." He sighed happily. His stomach filled. Hinata, had put the last Cinnamon roll in her mouth and chewed on it and swallowed. She looked at Ayame with a grateful look and glint from her eyes.

"Your welcome sweetie." Ayame smiled.

"Well! It's already night! Might as well... go home." Naruto exclaimed.

"See yah tomorrow Kiba, Akamaru." Naruto said as he helped Hinata down from her chair and held her hand.

"See ya lover boy!" Kiba said, and Akamaru barked almost laughing.

"Whatever..." Naruto mumbled as he walked away with Hinata back to his home.

'At his house'

"Well... Hinata... *YAWN*... Time to hit the hay..." Naruto said.

Hinata looked confused.

"I meant to go to bed." Naruto laughed. Hinata nodded and started to run out of his room.

"Whoa, whoa, whoa! Hold it right there Hinata!" Naruto exclaimed. He was wearing his pijamas, and his arms had lunged forward and grabbed Hinata's arm gently.

"You're not sleeping out there! I'm not keeping you out of my sight! You sleep on my bed, and I'll sleep on the floor. Okay?" Naruto said. He carried her over to his bed and tucked her in.

"Well.. *yawn*.. G'night..." Naruto said as he layed down on the floor with only a pillow to lay his head on. After a few hours Hinata had woken up hearing someone talking. It was Naruto groaning in his sleep. "Uhnn.."

Hinata, for a little girl knew what this was from. She took the blankets that were over her small body and got up and draped it over Naruto's still form.

"Uhnnnnnnnn... That feels good..." (Don't think perverted people! :P) Naruto said stirring over face up, his back facing the floor. Hinata tilted her head. She wondered what he was dreaming about. Hinata looked over the window and saw it was still night time. She was still sleepy. She got back on the bed and fell asleep...

Rindiny: Well! That went great!

Inner Fan-girl Rindiny: That is sooooo ADORABLE! I LOVE NARUHINA!

Rindiny: Wait but-

Inner Fan-girl Rindiny: Maybe I should help design the wedding-

Rindiny: HEY! We haven't said the Disclaimer yet!

Inner Fan-girl Rindiny: You say it. I'm too lazy.

Rindiny: Well. Naruto does not belong to me. It belongs to Kishimoto. If I did own Naruto, he'd be cuddling up with Hinata already. Yay me AND OUR FANTASIES. :D
