"Sure Hinata! I should probably get to bed too," he stifled a yawn, "'s tough being Hokage," and he grinned. They walked side by side back to the Hyuuga residence, smiling. Naruto said his goodbyes on the doorstep and made his way through the quiet streets back to the Hokage residence. He paused after shutting the door behind him, drinking in the empty shadows and not bothering to turn on the light as he made his way to bed.

Sakura dragged herself out of a crazy dream with a groan. What the hell happened? Oh no wait, she winced as her headache spun and pictures from the night before began to seep into her mind. I think I may have gotten horribly drunk. And then what? Did they go to more than one bar or was she just confused? She couldn't remember anything too clearly from her sixth cup onwards, although she had a weird memory of bouncing around on Akamaru that might have been a dream. Groggily, she opened her eyes and groaned at the light in her eyes. As the room came into focus she felt a delayed sense of panic - this wasn't her room! Where the hell was she?! She froze as she heard a soft snore, and turned her head very slowly. She was in a bed that wasn't hers... and Kiba was sprawled half of the bed next to her. With a yelp of shock and horror, she lurched backwards, and then moaned in pain when her head protested and her leap sent her off the side of the bed. Landing in a heap, she clutched her head. OhgodohgodwhatdidIdowhenIwasdrunk?! Please tell me I didn't... with Kiba... she buried her face in her hands, not noticing that the both of them were still fully dressed.

Kiba moved around a bit when he heard a loud yell coming from close by and softly growled a little when his eyes met with the light of the room but what he saw when opening his eyes made him yelp as well and moved away from the bed swiftly. omg we didnt no this cant be true all did was taking her out for some drinks and that made us really drunk Clutching his head Kiba slowly stood up again and tried to think of how this might have happend. ''Sakura uhh i am really confused here did i do anything to you last night? i cant really remember anything all that much. and ohhh my head is really killing me here arrgh'' and made himself sit down on the bed while still clutching his head.

With a groan, Sakura tipped forward and let her head rest on the side of the bed. "Ohgod, please don't talk so loud. Did we... what did we do?" she couldn't bring herself to look at Kiba. I can't believe I woke up in his bed. We didn't... did we? I can't remember anything! I am never touching sake again, dammit! Her thoughts were interrupted by a tap on the window and she looked up to see two small birds perched on the windowsill. "A mission? Guh, now?" she struggled to her feet and realised with relief that she had slept in her clothes. She saw from Kiba's slump that he had noticed it too - geez he didn't have to look that relieved. "Um, Kiba? Can I borrow your shower? I guess I'll just have to wear this... oh, damn. I don't suppose your sister has any clothes I can borrow?" she hated wearing dirty clothes, and the rumpled ones she had on were hardly suitable for a mission.

Naruto stretched back in his chair as the ANBU captain he had been briefing disappeared. He had woken up in good spirits that morning and after dragging himself out of bed (why was it that no matter how big his bed - and this one was pretty big - he always managed to pull the covers off and throw the pillows on the floor? Yesterday he'd fallen out of it too) and eating two cups of ramen had hurried out to get in a quick warm up. He was interrupted halfway through his katas by a messenger with an urgent message from the Daimyo - having read it, he wasted no time summoning who he needed and made his way back to the hokage tower to brief the team.

Kiba shook his head and growled when the headache that he felt right now really started to became worse.

''Sakura please i cant really concentrate on what you are saying when my head is really given me trouble'' And growled once more.

''Let me get a painkiller first, while you borrow my shower, its around the corner you cant miss it''

Without given her any further instructions of what she could do grabbed the door frame to very slowly making his way towards his kitchen to grab the antidote for his head killing headache.

When he finally arrived at his destination, he quickly pushed open one of his kitchen closets and grabbed his medicine box to take out a small bottle with small pink tablets inside of it. opening it with great hurry he took two of the small tablets in his hands, went to the sink, made himself some glass of water and took them in his mouth,swallowed took some water after it and signed in relief when he slowly felt the headache started to fade from his head bit by bit.

But then he remembered Sakura was still inside of his apartment room and a slight panic started to spread through his mind.

She was inside his shower now and with her complains about needing new clothes made Kiba rack his brain of were to get them. Slightly annoyed with himself he went through his messy uncombed hair and gave up. Maybe the mission wasnt anything special and would give her enough time to go get some new clothes to change into. With that thought in mind made Kiba walk back to his own room to grab some fresh washed clothes and changed quickly.

They were in a hurry soo that made his decision of what to wear simple.

All he needed was his ambu uniform, his mask, his black t shirt, his black pants and his ninja sandals.

in case it was a dangerous mission,he grabbed his collection of suriken and kunai that would make him prepared enough if there was to be a fight.

Taking a deep breath Kiba walked back to his bathroom and knocked on the door softly.


''Sakura uhm I wasn't able to find you some new clothes to wear but maybe you will have the change to get back to your own home before we need to leave..
he waited till she responded to his words and hoped she wasnt all that mad. you never knew how she would reacted to bad news was one thing Kiba knew all too well.

That same morning Hyuga Hinata had woken up with a smile upon her face. after her date with Naruto everything had become clear to the young woman. She was finally able to go on with her live and with Naruto calling her one of his special people made her feel very cheerful and happy this morning.

She could'nt wait to tell Kiba the news. But when she thought of Kiba she became worried once more what had he been doing while she went on her date, she hoped nothing awful.


Well knowing Kiba he probably had searched up one of his friends to hang out with and just enjoy himself while he had the time. yes that probably might be it Hinata thought and grabbed her brush to comb her hair. fully satisfied with that answer.

Sakura frowned as she put on the same clothes she had slept in. They were icky and no way was she going to sniff them... god this had better not be one of Naruto's stupid 'friendly' missions or she'd kill him. She really wanted to change... but friend or not, when the hokage summoned, you went with all haste. At least she had dealt with her headache - a hot shower, a big glass of water and some healing ninjutsu and she no longer felt like the sky was crushing her. They left the house together bleary eyed, chewing on fruit for breakfast, and failed to notice Ino quickly whip out of sight round the corner of a nearby house. She had been walking to her usual training ground to meet her team... she hadn't expected this. Sakura... spent the night? No way! Kiba and Sakura? I don't believe it I was sure she had a thing for Naruto... she watched them leave, her mind working a mile a minute as it digested this interesting new development.

Naruto sealed his hastily written message just as Kiba and Sakura entered the room. He stared at them in surprise - they weren't dressed for a mission at all, in fact they both looked like they slept in their clothes. What was going on? He shook his head abruptly, this was no time to think of things like that. "I'll be quick," he said, "I've already briefed Aoki, who will be your captain for this mission. I received a message this morning from the capital - the daughter of the Daimyo of the Land of Water, who was visiting her cousins there, has been kidnapped. Half the shinobi assigned to guard our Daimyo and his family are already in pursuit, and it may be that by the time you arrive this will already have been resolved - however they may well need back-up. I'm sending a team made up of my best tracker and medic nin to assist, along with Sai who is skilled in covert ops. The little girl was taken without any of the guardsmen noticing, so there is a strong chance that enemy ninja could be involved. This could become an international incident. She needs to be rescued as quickly and discreetly as possible - When you have her safely back," the gaze he fixed on them conveyed his faith in their ability to succeed, "I want you to do everything needed to make sure that things are resolved. Peacefully. If that means escorting her back to her home country, send me a mission request and I'll sign off on it. Understood?" He waited for their nods, and then rubbed his forehead (a gesture he'd picked up since becoming hokage and discovering what stress was). "You'd better swing by the ANBU quarters to pick up some gear," Sakura flushed at his frown directed at her rumpled civilian garb. She'd never felt so irresponsible. "Your team meets at the main gate in 15 minutes. Oh and take this with you, it's to be delivered to the Daimyo. Go."

Taking everything in Kiba was ready to travel to the village hidden in water but had trouble not to laugh when Naruto gave Sakura that frown instead he gave a sharp nod. ''Everything is clear to me we jsut need to get that little girl back and doing it as quickly as we possibly can. no need to worry,we have her back in no time at all right Sakura-chan?'' he said in a teasing way and chuckled slightly.

But still he could not help but wonder how Naruto and Hinatas date went but having this mission assigned so suddenly didnt gave him the chance to ask about it at all he knew that. it just had to wait till they got back home.



The morning went by slowly for Hinata having no mission assigned to her today gave her enough free time to spend for herself. After getting dressed she decided to get some grocery shopping done. She wanted to suprise her cousin Neji and her sister Hanabi that evening by making a sweet apple pie with lots of apples and cream on top of it and maybe her father would want to taste a bit from it as well.

With that idea on her mind made the young woman grab her coat to get on her way.

Naruto sat back in his chair and pulled at his collar. Giving his friends orders still felt really weird - he kept expecting them to look at him like he was an idiot and say 'why the hell should I do what you say?' In the beginning he was always stumbling over orders and unsure of himself, but Tsunade had schooled him to slip into what she called 'Hokage mode' - he sometimes felt he was wearing boots too big for him, but he could act with the confidence and authority he needed - and Tsunade had assured him he'd grow into them eventually! Going over the orders he'd given in his head, he hoped they understood the implications - well they probably did, they were smarter than him after all. And what was with their clothes? They looked like they'd slept in them or something... what the hell had they been doing? Dammit it he shouldn't think about that now...

"Ah... Shiho? Where's the list I made last night?" He had taken to always listing the things that needed doing, or any thoughts and ideas he had, whenever they came into his head - and he read his list over and redid it at the end of each day. It was horrifyingly organised of him and he'd die if his friends found out about it, so he gave it to Shiho for safekeeping.

"I put it on your desk, Hokage-sama." The young woman had just brought an armful of scrolls in from the adjoining room.

"Eh? No..." he looked over his empty desk, which Shiho (and an occasional kage bunshin army) was kind enough to keep organised for him - it was empty except for a small stack of scrolls she had just brought him. "It's not - the only thing here was the letter I - ah CRAP!" Shiho looked up in surprise when he suddenly grabbed two handfuls of his hair, eyes wide.

"What?"

"I - I sent my list to the Daimyo - I wrote a letter to him on the other side!" He hadn't even glanced at the paper as he rolled it up and sealed it with a direction, he was in such a hurry.

Shiho looked slightly amused. "Well He'll probably understand you were in a hurry. I'm sure he appreciates how hard it is to keep on top of a whole hidden vill-"

"You don't understand! My ideas for Teuchi's new ramen recipe competition were on there!"

Sakura released the seal on her ANBU locker and hurriedly pulled out her things and got changed, grateful the ANBU quarters were set up with male and female changing for just such occasions. She barely had time to check over her equipment - and she was slightly obsessive about checking it before each mission, especially her medical supplies. But she understood the need for haste - a little girl's life was on the line, and riding on it was potentially the peace treaty and goodwill between the nations of fire and water. This was an important mission, and her adrenaline was already pumping, her hangover forgotten. Once she was all set she emerged into the main hall - Kiba was waiting for her, now hidden behind his mask. (She had always thought it was a bit silly considering how recognisable Akamaru and her pink hair were, but until they deemed it appropriate they wore the masks) With a nod, they took off together for the gate. Sai and their Captain Aoki, a seasoned ANBU captain who had trained them on their entrance into the black ops, were waiting for them.

"You took your time getting here," he snapped - he had always been a hard taskmaster, she remembered with a wince. "Just what have you two been doing?"

Kiba laughed a little nervously before answering and sharped his voice.

Every time they were going on a mission with caiptain Aoki made him feel a little uneasy and didnt quite know what to say he hated to feel that way because usually he never was one to feel anything but nervous when talking to people he always was very confident in his own skills and doings. ''Uhm well thats a little personal captain and i rather not talk about it if you dont mind'' before the stern man could even respond Kiba all ready climbed his dog and was no longer there to have conversations with.

Very relieved to have escaped the mans difficult questions made Kiba lean backwards and take a deep breath before he made Akamaru stop again to wait for further orders and for the rest of his team to have cached up to him.

At the same time Hinata just was about to cross a small bridge while having her basket full of the ingredients to make her applepie when she spotted Kiba Sakura Sai together with a elder man who she regoniced as one of the elder ANBU captains and a small smile appeared on her face when seeing Kiba. she was all ready afraid she wasnt able to see him today, afraid he might be all ready left on another mission.

being one of Konohas best trackers made him away from home plenty of times. But when seeing him waiting near the gates for his team to catch up to him made her speed up her pace and a little out of breath made her arrive just in time.

Breating hard she stood still before Akamaru and said with a soft voice ''Kiba-kun please wait before you go let me wish you good luck'' Kiba stared at her suprised to see her standing there but that was quickly gone and replaced with a soft smile on his lips. ''Of cours Hina-chan I migth not be back for a couple of days so please take good care of your self can you do that?''

Giving him a firm nod he made Akamaru walk a little bit closer and placed a hand on her shoulders. ''Thats good then'' leaning forwards he kissed her softly on top of her hair before the rest of his team arrived.

''I am going now goodbye Hinata-chan'' She smiled at him warmly and nodded once more. ''Good luck Kiba-kun I be waiting for your return'' and with that vanished in tin air. Kiba blinked his eyes still a little bit confused with the way she jsut acted towards him but he had no more time to think about it any further because Sakura all ready stood near him to give him further orders complaing of him always being so hasty.

Sakura hesitated when she came upon the scene taking place between Kiba and Hinata. It looked like a tender goodbye and she didn't want to interrupt, she explained to herself, unwilling to admit to the discomforting feeling of something like jealousy when she saw Hinata. She looked... happy. It must have gone well last night. And Naruto this morning had only looked at her to frown at her clothes - what must he have thought? Perhaps he didn't even care - he hadn't even said goodbye to her, not as a friend. The smile she saw Hinata give Kiba was the kind of smile that told someone they were precious to you. The kind of smile Naruto used to give her - she couldn't remember the last time he had smiled at her like that. She had thought it was just because they were both so busy that they didn't seem to spend any time together, except on duty. Had she been wrong? She squashed the pang of jealousy she felt that Naruto hadn't said goodbye to her like that and hid her emotion in her usual manner - she shouted at Kiba for running off ahead.

They settled into a steady rhythm as they travelled through the trees, hardly making a sound, and the silence gave her time to think that she didn't really want. She couldn't get out of her mind the way he had looked at her. What he must think of her for turning up like that... Damn it why should she care? She could do what she wanted! Yet no matter what she told herself she couldn't shake the feelings making a tangle inside her. Her thoughts went round in stupid circles all the way to the walls of the capital city, where she was able to put them to one side, having something else to concentrate on at last. They moved swiftly across the city rooftops, unseen, and dropped down into the central courtyard of the palace. It had taken several hours to reach their destination and they were provided with food as they met with the Daimyo's guardians and listened to the evidence they had. The little girl had been taken from her room while everyone was asleep, several stories up, the only sign being an open window. The shinobi who had been in pursuit had returned empty-handed to meet with them, unable to find a trail. Their best option was to take up the pursuit as quickly as possible, and they turned to Kiba, as the tracker-nin on their squad, to hear his thoughts.


Naruto had escaped Shiho to have a late lunch at Ichiraku. He stabbed his chopsticks into the bowl with a moody sigh. After asking if he was more concerned about the embarrassment of sending something so silly to the Daimyo, or the fact that his precious ramen ideas were lost, she had followed him round all morning with a pile of reports - even when he was assigning missions in the mission room she kept putting them in front of him until he had started to go cross-eyed. He'd given her the slip on the way up to his office... thank god for his mastery of shadow clones.

She was going to be very grumpy. The last time he had done that she had complained that the clone's spelling was even worse than his... which didn't make much sense to him, other than he supposed maintaining a jutsu took a certain amount of concentration.

It was the first time he'd been able to think since this morning, and he sighed, resting his head in one hand. I sent Sakura-chan on a dangerous mission and I didn't even say goodbye properly. He was going to worry incessantly about her getting injured - he always did - and now he had that to add to his mental disturbance. He couldn't believe he'd acted so disapproving... who was he to act like that? He'd probably pissed her off at best - he might even have hurt her feelings. He wasn't blowing this out of proportion was he? It was just that everything to do with his rosy-haired teammate seemed so important. Realising he was frowning intently at a piece of his spiral-patterned namesake, he stuck it in his mouth and nearly choked when something else abruptly came to mind. He called her Sakura-chan?! Had they gotten that close? When had they - he caught sight of someone out of the corner of his eye and turned on his stool, pushing his thoughts to one side. "Heeeeey! Hinata-chan!" he waved. "Join me!"

Kiba had been busy looking around once everything had been explained,and gave his dog a small nod who asnwered back by given him a loud bark in return. Kiba focused his attention back to his squad and spoke. ''hmm its not very easy to find her if the only tracks that we have are from the widow. If possible i need to go back there to make myself familiar with the girls scent only then will i and my dog be able to find to find the right trail.

and waited for his captain to agree. While he waited he found himself worry a little about his pink haired friend. Hoping she still wasn't thinking into it too much. Ok it was a bit strange that Naruto hadnt wished her good luck in the same happy manner that only he could do and only had given her a hokage like farewell which seemed a little bit strange to Kiba if he thought about it a little bit more .

He glanced at her for a second and saw she was pretty deep in thought. well there wasnt much that he could do for her now but once they held a little break he decided to have a little talk with her to at least try to make her feel a little bit more at ease. he hated to see her this confused.

Hinata looked around from right to left when she heard her name being called. just when she was almost done with her grocery shopping and saw Naruto seated on his usual place at Ichiruka's ramen restaurant calling her name cheerfully. With her basket in one hand while carefully holding a small bag of apples in her other she slowly stepped towards Naruto. Once standing besides his seat she slowed down and looked at him and smiled a warm smile. ''Naruto-kun?'' something the matter?'' and waited for him to answer back.

"Come sit down!" Naruto patted the stool next to him. "You had lunch yet? I'll buy you some ramen!" He missed the attention he had drawn - the question had been shouted across the street - and Teuchi's speculative look when she sat down next to him. "Hey, you've been shopping? What for?" he peered curiously (nosily) at the bags she had set down at her feet.


Feeling Kiba's eyes on her, Sakura glanced up to see him looking a little concerned. He must have noticed her mood. Remembering how he had bullied and cajoled out of her just how much she liked their blond Hokage, she felt somewhat glad that she could avoid the 'talk' that was clearly coming. She watched him cast about with an expert's deft touch as they were shown the little Princess' guest room, and a collection of her things. She had no doubt that he would be able to pick up a trail, and when he did they would be in swift and silent pursuit with no chance to talk. She didn't understand what she was feeling right now herself, only that a formless sort of cold dread had settled somewhere in her stomach - one that had nothing to do with their mission. She had to try to focus on the mission, and stop thinking of back home - after all, she couldn't let Naruto down. She could untangle her emotions later, when they had time - Kiba would probably get it out of her, and it might even be a relief. Taking a deep breath, she cleared her mind and thanked her merciless shishou for the practised focus she could achieve. Right now she was just a subordinate, and they were all waiting on what Kiba had to say.

Kiba touched the window carefully with his fingers and let Akamaru sniff the scent that was on the small amount of things that the princess had left behind while being kidnapped. given his nin-dog a quick nod Akamaru whined soflty and barked. ''Hmm you think so too huh buddy?'' Kiba spoke to his dog and knelt down on his knees to have a closer look at the little doll that was on the ground. he picked it up and let Akamaru sniff at it some more,before he got back on his feet again and looked back at his caiptain and the rest of his team. ''first of all Akamaru and i managed to pick up the scent but its very faint' so we will try our hardest to find the right trail right Akamaru?'' The white dog stepped closer to his master and whipped his tail while barking fiercely. ''Allright lets go'' he said in a firm and loud voice and swiftly jumped upon the back of his dog to vanish in thin air not a second later.

Hinata looked at her basket and smiled. ''Ohh this I am going to make a applepie tonight i want to suprise Neji and my sister Hanabi they both have been very busy lately and i thought it was time for some family time when i heard they both would be home tonight i hurried off to go buy the needed ingredients.. ohhh and i saw Kiba-kun and Sakura-san leaving for a mission when will they be back?'' looking down at hands she awaited his answer.

Sakura watched Kiba lead off and a second later the rest of the Anbu squad disappeared, only a few wisps of smoke indicating they had been there a moment before. She was left with the impression of the Daimyo staring with an oddly confused expression at the letter she had delivered to his hands.

Naruto's expression fell slightly as he was reminded of what he had been dwelling on a moment before. "Ah - yes it's an important mission. I can't say when they'll be back - it really depends on how they handle things. It could be a few weeks." A few weeks when all he'd have to go on were the intermittent reports a squad on a mission could find time to send - the only knowledge he'd have of whether things were alright. He fought down a sudden urge to take off in pursuit and lead the mission himself, just so he could be there to protect his friends - to protect her... but he couldn't just run off and leave the village. He was Hokage, and however much he tried he couldn't protect everyone at once - he just had to have faith in them. He could do that.

He had been silent for a long moment, and realised that Hinata was looking a little worried. She was probably thinking, if he was worried, that the mission must be serious. Of course she would worry about her teammate. "Uh," he scratched the back of his neck a little awkwardly, "I won't discuss the mission," he ran his village with the belief that it was safest to keep dangerous information only where it was needed, "but I'll let you know if - when I get reports from them, if you like, just to know it's going alright." He paused as a sudden curiosity struck him. "Um, Hinata-chan? What's apple pie?"

Kiba still upon Akamarus back sniffed the air and scanned the area around him to see any kind of movement that would give him more clues of the missing princes and maybe even her kidnapper. Until quite suddenly Akamaru paused and barked while looking into the rigth direction of the forest they were in now. Kiba jumped from his dog and gave a quick nod. ''yes thats right Akamaru we are lucky they haven't gotten very far'' Looking to the closet person next to him which happened to be Sakura gave her the news. ''Sakura I think Akamaru has found the person that kidnapped the princess and we think that he ore she is carrying the young girl on his back we need to be very quick now then i think we have a high chance to save the princess'' and waited for the rest of his team to arrive.

Akamaru was never wrong when it came to tracking missions Kiba thought happy to be distracted. it made him stop to think about Hinata ore even about Sakura when he saw her looking slightly better all ready. He signed and knelt donw on his knees. it sure was hot here. thats what you get when you go on missions in summer time. Kiba thought and went in search for his water bottle while waiting.

Hinata could not help but to giggle at his silly quistion and answered. ''Naruto-kun doesnt know what a applepie is that really suprises me'' and another fit of giggles escaped her lips before she was able to contine again. ''Thats easily asnwered. Its a pie filled with apples lots of them. and a very simple pie to make even. ''Why dont you try it i am sure my father wont mind when i invite you over Naruto-kun'' and gave him a sweet smile.

"Ehh? At your house?" Naruto blinked and scratched his blond hair, pleased but a little apprehensive at the same time. "Wow, no-one's ever asked me to come to their house before... will it be OK?" he put the money for their meal down on the counter absently, his eyes on Hinata.


Sakura landed beside Kiba and listened to his report, happy for the respite in this heat. "We're catching up already?" She glanced at the rest of their squad and with a silent signal from their captain they took off in the direction indicated. Still, although Kiba insisted their quarry was not far ahead, they gained ground slowly. When Kiba and Akamaru paused in a clearing to get their bearings, Sakura glanced around, her mind working. The clearing was filled with long grass and heavily scented wild herbs and flowers, the lowering sunlight casting swatches of hazy gold between long shadows - it was approaching sundown. The forest rose around them, and they stood almost in a gully, next to a stream pooling in a small hollow. "Aoki-taichou," she spoke softly, "something doesn't add up. If we caught up to them so quickly after a good 12 hour headstart, they can't be very fast, but they managed to barely leave a trail - we'd never have tracked them without Kiba and Akamaru. That means that most likely they're shinobi. So something must be slowing them down, apart from the girl - they would have planned for that..." she thought furiously. What could it be? "The way we've been following them, not quite catching up, makes me think they know we're on their tail - and if they know that then this is the perfect place for a-" she was cut off when Sai slammed into her side. They hit the dirt together and there was a ring of metal as their team members deflected a rain of weapons. Sakura felt something warm splash her face - blood, she could smell it. One kunai had found its mark.

"Ambush," hissed Aoki. "Shit-" the last kunai carried an exploding tag, and they barely leapt clear, trying to regroup. The way the forest rose up in shadow around them made it almost impossible to see where the attack was coming from.

"They were aiming for Sakura," said Sai shortly, avoiding tripping a wire that was attached to several more exploding tags by a hairsbreadth. They were forced back towards the centre of the clearing.

"Take out the team medic first - ruthless but efficient," Aoki glanced at the red-marked medic pack Sakura wore, her only distinguishing feature. "Damn it - split," the command was short, they understood in this situation two targets were harder to follow than one, and they already knew their attack partners, Sakura with Kiba. Quickly they parted directions as another barrage of weapons rained down. This time as they were in mid-leap, a kunai darted in front of them pulling across another string of exploding tags. Clever, thought Sakura - severing the string with even a sharp kunai would have pulled at it enough to set off the tags. She used a chakra scalpel to snap it cleanly and she and Kiba landed safe on a branch, immediately ready facing outward with their backs pressed to Akamaru's sides. She sensed more than one chakra signature in the shadows around them - they hadn't been there a moment ago, and usually Kiba would know when someone was approaching. Perhaps their scent was masked - she remembered the wild herbs in the clearing and hoped and prayed he would be able to pinpoint their location as a shout preceded the rushing sound of a water jutsu.

Hinata shook her head. ''Of cours not my father cant say no to you Naruto-kun you are the Hokage after all'' she said softly and a faint blush appeared on her cheeks as she said it. carefully she grabbed the bowl in her hands and ate the last bit of her ramen and stood up from her chair. ''But i really have to go now. Will it be ok for you to visit tonight then i am sure to have my apple pie ready for you to taste Naruto-kun?'' and waited for him to answer back.

''Sakura look out!!!!'' Kiba yelled and pushed her aside to reflect the jutsu that was about to hit Sakura. Jumping away from the branches Kiba quickly called for his dog and not before long was Akamaru transformed in a clone of his master and together they launched forwards.

''Gatsuuga they both yelled and Kiba found himself fighting with by looking at the forehead protector of the man that he was from the hidden water village. but just when he thought his justu made contact with the man all that was left of him was a large puddle of water. Kiba looked around really confused and growled when he no longer smelled the scent of his attacker.

Akamaru also lost the scent and whined silently.

Sakura dropped to the forest floor beside Kiba and Akamaru, panting slightly. "You lost the scent?" she questioned, and at his resigned nod hissed "bastards!" He began scanning the ground around them, obviously looking for signs, and Sakura turned as Sai and the Captain appeared next to them.

"Water clones," Aoki growled. "This complicates things. Keep on your guard - I don't think they were planning on us seeing them and surviving. Sai, you had better send a message to Hokage-sama." Sai nodded, but as he pulled out his ink and a scroll to paint on, Sakura noted that his movement was awkward. He was hurt. Without a word, she pushed him into a sitting position and began inspecting the wound - Sai knew better than to protest. Sakura glanced up as she began a healing jutsu on the disinfected kunai wound in his shoulder, and saw Kiba crouching in front of a bush some way off, inspecting the leaves. Perhaps he had found some signs of their attackers - with the scent temporarily lost she hoped he would be able to track by other means - she knew if there was a trail to be found he could find it. He'd worked hard over the last year to make sure he was the best tracker nin out there.

Sai waited for her to bind his shoulder before he wrote out a quick message and activated his jutsu - the ink scrambled together into a small bird and disappeared through the treetops. They didn't have much information yet of course, but it looked like things were already getting complicated. She was pretty sure now that the little girl had been taken by mist ninja - shinobi from her own country. But why? This was politics turning nasty, and that meant Naruto had to deal with it. I hope you can handle this, idiot. She squashed down a bubble of mixed up emotions - deal with those later - and looked up at Kiba rejoining them. "Have you found anything?" she asked.


Naruto shoved his hands into his pockets and grinned at a young woman carrying a basket of laundry as he passed (she flushed slightly and hissed at her young son to stand up straight), trying to tell himself that he wasn't at all nervous. OK, maybe a little bit... you were supposed to bring a gift when you were asked to someone's house, right? He'd brought a small box of puffed rice cakes filled with fruit jelly - a delicacy from Cloud that he ordered in, mostly because Sakura liked them, though he would never admit that the little sweets he had 'conveniently' placed on his desk whenever she stopped by were so much trouble to get hold of. Would that do? And he'd have to remember all his good manners. A slightly sinking feeling hit him as he acknowledged that at some point he would probably mess up and look like an idiot, talk too loud or say something accidentally rude, but at least he was resigned to it... and if Hiashi turned against him for some slip-up, he'd just have to work extra hard to get back into his good graces. Easy.

Hinata had said to come round about 7. He wasn't quite late, but he would be if he stood around anymore dithering like a little girl. Raising his hand, he rang the bell.

Kiba shook his head ans growled in frustration. '' No i have not. Darn it just when we were this close'' he let himself fall through his knees and smashed the ground near him with his fist rather hard which got Akamaru to bark loudly. Kiba looked at his dog and nodded. ''Yeah i know Akamaru we cant give up just yet.

Standing up again he dusted his clothes and continued to investigate the ground the grass and the tree branches while Akamaru followed his example by sniffing the high grass with his nose. all focused on finding the girls scent again.

After what seemed like forever Kiba suddenly abruptly paused his searching. ''Guys heey look what i found here'' he said with excitement in his voice.


Without waiting for his team to gather around he continued to talk. ''I think this will help us finding the person that has the princess kidnapped''

and in his hand he was holding a middle sized bag and quickly opened it to reveal a collection of herbs.

''This will help us find this person better. i was thinking that the scent of this herb and by the looks of it i think this herb is called Lemon verbena, i am no expert when it comes to herbs but i have seen this herb somewere before its used to make tea with if i am not wrong''

and looked back the herb in his hand. ''I hope to detect the scent by the smell of this perciliar herb i figured the one that has the girl kidnapped is specialist in healing herbs but i can be wrong its just a gues what do you think Sakura?''

and waited for his pink haired team-mate to answer him.

That same day was spend very differently by one young woman named Hyuga Hinata. after she had said her goodbyes to Naruto she had bene very excited and happy to have him coming over to her home. to have him taste a bite from her applepie. to taste a bite from the apple pie that she had made herself.
It being Naruto that came for a visit made her do her best even harder. and when the bell rang and one of the servant of the family had welcomed the hokage in she quickly with a slight trembling of her fingers prepared the plates and had placed them on the coffee table that stood in the middle of the main chamber of the main branch.

Her father was seated near the table while her cousin Neji and younger sister Hanabi sat further away. both glancing curiously into the hall way to catch a small glimpse of Naruto.While Hinata went to welcome Naruto herself without given her father our siblings any further glance and almost ran out of the room. She really was a bit tense. still havent had the chance to tell her father about her and Narutos date so neither him ore he siblings knew about them only good friends yet.

when she was out of the room and stood near the entrance door she waited for Naruto to step in side and waited.

Sakura took the little herb pouch and shook some of the dried leaves into her hand. "It certainly looks like lemon verbena," she confirmed. "It has some medicinal properties, though I think it's mostly used for flavouring and brewing drinks- it's pretty rare though, it's hardly grown on this continent at all, I guess the land of Fire still prefers tea. I have a small supply at the hospital that Naruto grew - I think from a sprig the Mizukage sent him. A herb that's rare except in the land of Water, in a remote part of the forest - It could be a lead. Still.." she turned the little pouch over in her hand. "I don't think this was dropped today. It's got bugs crawling around in it," she flicked an ant away. "Maybe on their way to the capital, before they kidnapped the girl... But if they're returning with the girl to wherever they came from - Kiba, if there's a trail of it you can follow, it could lead us to wherever their destination is! It's a bit of a wild card but," she looked at the Captain, "we don't really have anything else to go on."

Her teammates agreed with her, and their Captain looked at the sky. "It hasn't rained in days but it's starting to cloud over... I think we'd better take this lead while we can. We'll keep going through the night, Kiba, if you can lead us."


Naruto shot a wide grin at the young Hyuuga that opened the door for him, practically bouncing inside (must not bounce. Hokage's do not bounce. Oh, who am I kidding, I'm Hokage and I'll bounce as much as I want!) and then tried to apologise when the Hyuuga girl - who looked about 13 - gave a small 'eep' at his exuberance (he'd bounced really close) and flushed bright red. For some reason his earnest apologies at having startled her with his enthusiasm didn't seem to calm her down at all, and when he looked up to find Hinata watching, he laughed sheepishly, scratching the back of his head. The younger Hyuuga ran off to hide and follow him with her eyes.

"Ah - I brought these! Do you like them?" he stuck the box of sweets towards her. "Sakura-chan likes them, I didn't know if I should bring something but I thought if I wasn't meant to better to get it wrong and have sweets ahahaha!" OK, Naruto himself barely understood what came out of his mouth half the time. "Well..." he pushed the box into her hands, "I hope you like them anyway. Wow, something smells good!"

Hinata gave him a soft smile before she accepted his gift. ''Thank you very much Naruto-kun Sakura-san has good taste and she gave him yet another warm smile before she led the way back towards the main living room.

When they had arrived back Hinata told him to take a seat next to her cousin Neji while she seated herself next to her father and served everyone her applepie which even her father found it very tasteful and well made. Naruto and Hinata enjoyed there time together. happy everything was settled between them now. and when her little sister Hanabi asked with a bolt face if they were dating Hinata had giggled and shook her head before she and Naruto patiently explained that they were nothing more then very good friends.

Hiashi was a bit suprised by this he really wasnt all that eager to have Naruto marrying into the family but him being the Hokage now would make the Hyuga clan even more known. But now that everything was said and done between his daughter and Naruto he wondered what his dauhter was going to do now.

Meanwhile Kiba and his team leaped through the woods with the small trail Kiba had detected on the leather pouch and with Akamaru at his side they tried there hardest to find the right trail. but when the clouds reall broke open and the rain came pouring down they had to stop to take a break for the time being.

The next day came very quickly for Hinata after everything was been said and done she felt very peaceful and happy inside. She could not wait to tell Kiba about it to tell him that everything was fine now.

With another day without having a mission to take part in made Hinata walk the streets of Konoha until it suddenly started to rain. and with wearing nothing more then a thin summer dress and her sandals made her quickly search for a hiding place to shelter from the rain.

Scanning the area she ran inside a cafe were by her suprise Naruto sat hiding behind some huge plants.
