Naruto: The Shinobi Genius Book 1 Chapter 21


Volume 1 Chapter 21

Feeling the toad stop I woke up.

"So are you convinced yet?"

"You have proven yourself. From today on you are allowed to summon us whenever you want."

"Thank you. My name is Naruto Uzumaki, what is your name?"

"My name is Gamabunta, it's nice to meet you. I have to go now, goodbye."

He vanished in a big puff of smoke. I walked up to Jiraiya.

"So pervert what do you think of me now?"

"Your chakra control is really amazing. How did you do that?"

"Training. I have to go home now."

"Wait. You are in the chunin exams right. I heard that they will continue in one month so how about I train you in this month."

"Like you could teach me anything."

"Just look and then tell me if I have nothing to teach you. It's called Rasengan"

He struck it against a tree and send it flying away.

"That's pretty cool, how did you do that?"

He had a smug look on his face.

"You need to rotate your chakra in multiple directions and then increase the volume and density of the chakra."

I walked u to a tree.

"This is a really hard jutsu to master. It took the Fourth Hokage 3 years to create and it took me years to learn."

I held out my hand and a blue sphere appeared on it. I struck a tree and it got destroyed.

Jiraiya's eyes were about to pop off.

"This is easy. Didn't you say that it took you years to learn? I don't want to waste this month with you if you aren't even close to my level. I'm going home, bye."

I went home leaving a surprised Jiraiya behind. The reason I was able to use the Rasengan is because it was on the scroll of sealing. There were a lot of cool jutsus on there, but I need to be careful not to reveal them. I now have a good reason to use Rasengan.

I arrived home and went to sleep.

[Next morning]

After doing my daily necessities I went outside. I started walking towards the Hokage faces. I didn't want to bother to take the stairs so I just went straight up the mountain.

Arriving on top of the mountain I went into the forest that is on top of the mountain. After walking for a little longer I got to a clearing. I found this place 2 years ago and since then I've used this spot to meet up with Hinata.

I took out a scroll and placed it on the ground. After putting in some chakra a full-blown picnic came out of it. It smelled really nice.

[Hinata P.O.V.]

I'm in my room choosing what to put on. Naruto invited me again to hang out with him. He started inviting me 2 years ago.

[Flashback 2 years ago]

I was walking out of school when I heard someone call my name.

"Hey Hinata, wait up!"

"Naruto-kun?"

"Hey, Hinata are you free today."

"Uhm yes."

"Good, come with me."

He took my hand and started heading towards the Hokage mountain.

'Where is Naruto-kun taking me? Everyone is looking at us. I'm so embarrassed. But Naruto-kuns hands are so warm. They make me feel safe.'

We arrived on top of the mountain and he took me inside a forest. After some walking, we arrived at a clearing. It is beautiful. There are a lot of beautiful flowers and I could see a couple of cute animals.

"Why have you brought me here Naruto?"

He took out a scroll and after unsealing it a picnic came out of it.

"I wanted to invite you to a picnic."

'This smells really good. Did Naruto-kun make this?'

"Take a seat.'

We sat on the blanket.

"Go ahead and eat whatever you want."

I took some Dango and ate it.

"Wow, this is so delicious. Did you make everything yourself?"

"Yup."

"You're amazing Naruto-kun. I wished I could cook half as good as you."

"I could teach you if you want."

"You don't have to go through the trouble."

"It's okay, I like spending time with you."

I felt my face heating up.

"Thank you."

[Flashback end]

Thinking back to that day my heart started beating faster.

'In those 2 years, we have gone to the forest a lot of times. And even though we have become a lot closer, I still haven't told him how I feel about him.'

I finished picking my clothes and started to walk towards the forest.

'I need to tell him how I feel about him today. If I keep postponing it, he may find someone else.'

I arrived at the clearing and saw him waiting for me.

[Naruto P.O.V.]

I looked at Hinata. She is wearing a dress purple with black stockings. The dress reached 5 inches above her knees. Her hair is normal, but I could see that she has put on some make-up.

"You look even more beautiful than normal. Is there a special occasion?"

She blushed.

"I just felt like dressing up today."

"Well, you should do it more often. Have a seat."

She sat down. We were talking like normal. Asking how we are, what we are doing, and things like that. But I could see that she was contemplating something.

After we were done, I packed everything up and we were about to go home.

"Naruto-kun."

I turned back to her. She came really close to me.

"I have to tell you something."

I can already tell what she wants to say.

"Don't worry, you can tell me whatever you want"

"Naruto-kun I.. I.. I"

'She is really trying hard. Even if she isn't shy around me, this is still hard for her. But how do I actually feel about her? She is someone really special to me. Every time I see her my heart starts beating faster. When we aren't together, I can't stop thinking about her. She always makes my day better.'

I've read a lot of books including romance. And all of them tell me that what I'm feeling is love. I looked into her eyes and decided what I will do.

I grabbed her waist and pulled her closer to me. Our faces were an inch apart.

"Naruto-kun?"

"Hinata. I have thought about this long and hard. But I have finally decided how I feel about you. Every time I see you my day brightens a hundred times more than the sun ever could. My heart starts beating so fast I feel like it's about to fly out. And when we are apart I can never stop thinking about you."

I looked at her eyes one more time.

"Hinata. I love you."

She gave me the biggest smile I've ever seen.

"I love you too, Naruto."

We brought our faces closer. Our lips touched.
