"What will you do if I betray you?"
"I'll kill you. Once you swear loyalty to me, you can't go back."
I gave him 20 minutes to think about it.
"I'll swear loyalty to you, but I still don't know your name."
I let him out of the cage.
He got down on one knee.
"I Haku hereby swear my complete loyalty to Naruto Uzumaki. I'll defend Naruto-sama with my life and follow his commands without question."
"Good, I knew it was the right choice to take you in. It will be better if you stay here for the time being. Behind that right door is where you will be staying. It has everything you will need. Behind the left door is a training ground. I will leave a clone here that will train you."
"Thank you for your kindness Naruto-sama."
"It's okay. If you need anything, just ask my clone."
"I will take my leave now. Goodbye Haku."
[1 week later]
I was walking through the village thinking about the chunin exam. I have my clones spying on the Hokage 24/7. Well, except for when he has his pervert moments or is in the bathroom. No one wants to see that.
I have already sensed Gaara entering Konoha. I'm currently on my way to him. I just want to know what another jinchuuriki is like. Making my way over there, I hear someone yelling.
"That hurt, brat!"
'How did he bump into him this time? I don't see Sakura anywhere. Well, whatever.'
I appeared behind him with a kunai against his neck.
"Let him go."
'How did he get behind me?'
He let Konohamaru go, and I kicked Kankuro into the wall.
"Argh, you bastard!"
I looked at a tree.
"Ey, raccoon dog. You should put your dogs on a tighter leash."
On top of the tree, you could see someone standing upside down.
'How does he know?'
He jumped in front of me.
"Who are you and how do you know?"
"You should introduce yourself before asking for someone's name. You guys really have no manners."
"You bastard! I will kill you!"
"Shut up, Kankuro. My name is Gaara."
"It's nice to meet you Gaara, my name is Naruto Uzumaki."
"How do you know?"
"I don't know what you're talking about."
"Tsk lets go."
The three of them left.
"Wow, you were so cool. How did you do that?"
I looked at Konohamaru.
"A ninja doesn't tell his secrets to strangers. Especially not a brat like you."
"Do you even know who he is? He is the honorable Grandson of the Hokage!"
"Why should I care you snot-nosed brat! Even if he is the Hokage himself, I wouldn't care."
"But you have to teach me so I can defeat the Hokage and take over his hat."
"Like one jutsu could beat the Hokage. If you want to beat the Hokage You need to train every day without stop. But even if you trained every day, it will be useless."
"Because I will soon become Hokage and you will never be able to beat me."
"Then from now on, we are rivals. I swear that one day I will beat you and become Hokage!"
"You are too weak to be my rival but I don't mind beating you up every now and then."
I am on my way home when someone tried to stop me. Oh, Isn't that Iruka sensei.
"Why are you transformed into another villages shinobi Iruka-sensei?"
"What, how could you see through it?"
"If I couldn't even see through this simple disguise, I would never be able to become the strongest Shinobi to have ever lived."
"You really make me proud, Naruto."
"Haha, thank you. Well, I need to go see you later."
'He has really become someone amazing. I'm looking forward to what he will become.'

Training ground 8]
Asuma called us to the training ground, saying he has something important to say.
"You guys might have heard about the chunin exam that will be held in Konoha this year. I came here to ask if any of you want to participate. Fill in this form if you want to participate. You can come back to me if you have decided. But don't worry if you don't want to participate you don't have to. It's a solo thing, anyway."
I unsealed a pen and quickly filled in the form and gave it back to Asuma.
"Naruto-kun can I borrow your pen?"
"What a drag. Pass it over to me when you're done, Hinata."
"Good, you guys didn't let me down. I lied earlier. You need a team to join."
"It's not like you fooled anyone, sensei. We aren't dumb enough to be fooled by you."
"You brat dare make fun of me. Show some respect to your sensei."
"Maybe when you can beat me."
"Tsk, I will bring these to the Hokage. The exam begins in three days. Go to class 301 in the academy at 10 am. I will see you there."
"We finally get a chance for promotion. Being a genin really sucks. You guys better not back down. I know you guys can easily become chunins so don't go chickening out."
"Don't worry Naruto-kun, I will stay by your side forever."
"Is that a love confession?"
"What! No, I didn't mean it like that."
"Aw, that's too bad."
"Wha wha what!"
'Does Naruto-kun like me? No, why would he like me? There are so many better girls out there.'
"Don't tease her like that, Naruto."
"I wasn't lying. Well, let's finish our talk another time. I will see you guys in 3 days."
[3 days later]
I arrived at the academy and found my teammates already waiting.
"No, you're just early. Let's go inside."
We were walking towards the third floor when we saw a commotion on the second.
There were 2 disguised proctors that put up a genjutsu making it look like the second floor is the third. All of us saw through the genjutsu, so we were about to walk past them to the third floor.
"Please let us through."
'Isn't that Tenten?'
One of the disguised proctors was about to punch her when I stepped in and grabbed his fist.
"It isn't nice to punch a lady. Kotetsu and Izumo."
"How did you know brat?"
"I heard your names when Asuma-sensei greeted you at the gate. And it's not like making yourself look younger will throw me off."
"Your pretty impressive for a genin."
"Nah everyone here is just stupid. My teammates also saw through it."
Everyone started cursing at me.
'Guess they will make me their target. Well, more fun for me I guess.'
"Let's go, guys, we don't want to be late."
Before we could leave we got stopped by Neji. He stared at Hinata, but she just looked back at him. She wasn't afraid at all. Then he looked at me.
"What is your name?"
"You're not qualified to know."
I just walked past him with my teammates following me. We arrived at the third floor and entered through door 301.
