She looked down into the small cradle. The newborn child was sound asleep. The woman glanced out at the dark night. There was a storm brewing so that’ll help her escape even more. Her husband was out on a mission so there was no need to worry about slipping past him. She gently reached into the cradle and picked up the sleeping boy and put him securely in the sling wrapped diagonally across her body.
When the boy was snug against her, she looked down at him and whispered, “I’m not going to let you be trapped in the main clan’s ways. You’ll be free of that mark and the job of all branch families.”
The woman left a note on the cradle pillow saying almost the same thing she just told the boy. She picked up her small bag and left quietly. No one knew, heard, or saw her leave. No one would ever be able to do that anymore because she never returned to that village again.
Naruto and Sakura walked quietly beside Yamato, Kakashi, and Sai. They were in the largest port city of the Fire Country because of a rumor of Sasuke being there, but nothing was found of him. Yamato and Kakashi looked at the glum blonde and kunoichi.
“Kakashi-san, may I stop in this store to get more ink?” Sai asked.
The white-haired jounin shrugged. “Sure.”
They all stopped as the quiet boy walked into the store. Naruto and Sakura were still gloomy and down. The two jounin didn’t know what to say to cheer them up.
“You really should go! At least go look at him,” a girl said to her friend beside her.
They were walking towards the Konoha shinobi. The two shinobi teens looked at the girls out of boredom yet Kakashi and Yamato ignored them.
“Nah, why should I?” her friend asked.
“Because he looks like a ninja and he’s way hot,” the other replied.
The two were getting closer to the group, yet didn’t lower their voices and didn’t look at them.
“Why in the world would a ninja be working at a brothel?”
“I don’t know, but you should really see him! He’s called Tsuki at the place.”
“And how would you know?” the second girl asked her friend as she raised an eyebrow at her.
The first girl blushed slightly. “I didn’t do anything! I was just cutting through there as a short cut and I saw him. I’ve talked to him twice already. His voice is really deep, his skin is pale, and you could’ve swore he was a part of a noble family.”
Her friend laughed. “Right, and I’m the Hokage. It sounds like you just fell for another “hot” guy again.”
“No seriously,” the girl kept trying to convince her friend to see the guy as they continued to walk away. The four shinobi watched them go.
“Deep voice, pale skin, noble family?” Sakura repeated.
“You don’t think…?” Naruto trailed off.
“Nah, Sasuke-kun wouldn’t steep that low,” Sakura said.
“True, but it’s worth checking into just to make sure, right?” the blonde asked.
Both teens looked up at their jounin. Kakashi and Yamato exchanged looks then sighed.
“I guess we can go check it out,” Yamato said.
“Check what out?” Sai asked as they came back.
“We heard another rumor, but it sounds too strange to be true, but we’re going to check it out anyway,” Naruto answered.
“Oh,” was all Sai said.
They all were walking down a long street with brothels and pubs on both sides. Naruto and Sai were looking around innocently while Sakura hid behind a small blush and the jounin were looking down with a look that said “I don’t really want to be here right now”. The girls standing on the street saw them and some hid small laughs behind hands. Many were looking at Kakashi and Naruto, even though Naruto didn’t get what the looks meant.
“Can we please just get out of here,” Sakura mumbled in irritation.
“But we still haven’t seen the guy those girls were talking about,” Naruto complained.
The few women standing near them heard and some laughed while others looked a bit in shock.
“Naruto,” Sakura growled in anger, “he’s probably busy.”
Naruto looked in confusion at her. “Busy doing what?”
Yamato and Sakura blushed. Kakashi just sighed and zoned out his stupid student again.
“You…are so…stupid,” Sakura growled quietly. She was trying to control her anger so as to not attract attention to them here.
Naruto to a step back in fear of her anger. “Really, Sakura-chan, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Sakura looked up angrily then stopped and her face relaxed as she looked over the blonde’s shoulder. “Hey, isn’t that the guys those girls were talking about?” (A/N: talk about a mood swing eh?)
Everyone looked in the direction she was looking. A teenage boy was looking at them lazily. Kakashi and Yamato’s eyes widened when they saw his eyes.
“He has eyes just like Hinata-chan,” Naruto said.
The boy closed his eyes and went back to leaning against his hand. His long dark hair shifted and fell on to the floor behind him as he laid back down on his side.
“I wonder what his name is. I’m going to go ask.”
Before Sakura could stop him, Naruto had already gone over to the bars the boy was behind.
“Hey, long hair.”
The boy looked up lazily.
“What’s your name?” Naruto continued.
The few other people behind the bars, mainly guys, hid a smile behind a hand. They knew that their “comrade” always got more guys than they did.
“Tsuki,” the boy replied quietly.
“Tsuki?” Naruto said in confusion. “No you retard! I meant your real name!”
The boy’s eyes hardened, but he didn’t move. “And why do you want to know my real name?”
“Because your eyes are exactly like a person’s I know.”
The boy got up and started walking away, his loose yukata almost falling off his shoulders. “My name is of no importance to those from Konoha.”
Naruto’s eyes widened. “Were you a ninja?”
The boy stopped at the doorway and glared back at the blonde, “No.” He disappeared behind the cloth.
Naruto stood there for a second then returned to his friends.
“What did you say to piss him off, Naruto!” Sakura growled angrily again.
“Nothing, I just asked him his name and he said his “name is of no importance to those from Konoha”.”
The two jounin exchanged glances once more.
“Why would he say that?” Sakura said in curiosity.
“Unless he’s the one,” Kakashi answered.
The teens looked in confusion at him.
“Let’s go somewhere quiet before we explain,” Kakashi said.
“So what did you mean by what you said, Kakashi-sensei?” Naruto asked back at the hotel.
Everyone was sitting in the two jounins’ room.
“About 17 years ago a Hyuuga woman disappeared from the Hyuuga compound with her newborn son. All she left was a note saying she didn’t want her son to be trapped in the laws and ways of the clan. No one has been able to find her because she left right before a major storm so all tracks of her disappeared. We’ve all been told to keep an eye out for her or her son. That boy just may be the missing child,” Kakashi answered.
“We should report this immediately to the Hokage while a few of us stay behind to get information on the boy,” Yamato said.
“I agree. I’ll take Sai back with me and report this,” Kakashi replied. He looked at the quiet teen who nodded back in agreement.
