Naruto: The Shinobi Genius Book 1 Chapter 3

Volume 1 Chapter 3

Waking up I felt refreshed. But when I looked at my alarm clock I started to panic. It's currently at 8 am and the class starts at 8:30 am. Which means I have only 30 minutes left. I quickly went and did my daily routine. Which included brushing my teeth, taking a shower, and taking a shit.

When I was done I made some noodles and when I left my door I had only 15 minutes left. So I ran as fast as I could to the academy. While I was running I realized that I didn't get really tired. Being an Uzumaki and a jinjuriki has Its benefits.

After 10 minutes of running, I made it to the academy. Opening the door to my class and looking around I saw a lot of familiar faces. Everyone from the future rookie 9 was in this class. I took a look around and went to greet Shikamaru and Chji and then went to sit beside them.

Everyone was looking weird at me. Because even though school has only been going on for 1 week, Naruto has been a loudmouth every single day. So seeing me being so quiet they found it weird. But they are just 5-year-old kids, so they quickly forgot about me.

A couple minutes later Iruka-sensei entered the classroom and told everyone to be quiet. Because It's just a class of 5-year-olds everything here was so easy. We were learning how to read and write. They also taught us the shinobi rules and how to strengthen our mind and body. I thought that we would learn more than that, but I was the stupid one for believing they would teach little kids how to throw a kunai.

When it was lunch I went to get something to eat from the cafeteria. Luckily I was able to get my food without a problem. Rather than sitting in the cafeteria with a bunch of loudmouth kids I went to the roof.

After arriving at the roof I found Shikamaru lying there watching the clouds. Remembering how smart Shikamaru was and how he became Naruto's Chief Aide I decided that he is a worthy Allie. I found it kinda sad how he was always beside Naruto but Naruto instead of befriending him went after The Emo King who always ignored him and looked down on him.

I went up to Shikamaru and spoke to him.

"Yo, what are you doing here alone?"

"Cloud watching."

"Hm, I see. I also look at the clouds sometimes. I find it relaxing."

Shikamaru looked shocked.

'Someone other than me likes watching clouds. I never expected that from that kid. But he has been really quiet today.'

Naruto took him out of his thoughts.

"Hey I haven't introduced myself yet. My name is Naruto Uzumaki it's nice to mee you."

"I'm Shikamaru Nara nice to meet you too."

"Say do you want to be friends."

"Sure, why not."

"Really? That's great. Can we eat lunch together from now on"

"Sure let's come to this roof every lunch break. Its the best place to eat in peace."

"Yeah your right. Let go to class the bell just rang."

After finishing school I went home. On my way home I grabbed some leaves for training. After arriving and entering my home I heard a knock. Opening the door I saw a Chunin. He said the Hokage sent him to shop for me. I told him to wait while I make a list. It was just a lot of food ingredients and a couple of pairs of clothes since I know that wearing bright orange clothes and being a shinobi won't work without plot armor.

When he left I went to my bed and sat cross-legged. Then I grabbed a leaf from my pocket and put it on my forehead. I directed my chakra to it and tried to stick it to my head. But the leave bounced off. I used too much chakra. I tried it again but this time with less chakra. This time It staid on for 2 seconds.

I clicked on Basic Leaf exercise.

[Basic Leaf exercise LV1/30 0.00%

This is a chakra control skill. By keeping a leaf stuck on your body the experience rises. The more leaves you can stick on your body the faster you gain experience. For every level you get + 1 in chakra control.]

This is great. If tree climbing and water walking also get me +30 chakra control when it's maxed out I can get near-perfect chakra control. But why does it say basic in front of it? Maybe because Leaf exercise is the lowest level of chakra control. I'll know when I start with tree climbing.

After finding out a little bit more about the system I went back to training. While I was training the Cunin brought me the ingredients and clothes. Since this body hasn't eaten anything with a lot of nutritions like ever explained the reason why naruto was shorter than most.

I went ahead and made some perfect fried rice with some orange juice as a drink. I already knew how to make it, and I know a lot more recipes so maybe I was a chef in my previous life.


[Skill Basic Cooking learned]

This skill has 25 levels. And it also has basic in front. Maybe that means I can only make basic food now and when I max out my skill it gets upgraded. I wished there was some kind of guide.

After finishing my meal I continued my training since there isn't anything else I can do. After I finished training and getting my skill up to level 3 I went to bed, but not before setting my alarm so that I don't need to rush like last time.

After waking up at 7 am this time. I started doing my daily routine and made some good breakfast, which consisted of eggs and bacon. When It was 8 am I walked out of the door leisurely walked to school. I got there 5 min before the bell and went to sit beside Shikamaru again after greeting him and Chji. Me and Shikamaru had lunch together and did some cloud watching but this time Chji joined us.

After school finished I went to look for a training ground. I heard that training ground 39 was abandoned because It's old and they didn't bother to renovate it. After arriving at the training ground it really looked abandoned. There were a lot of holes in the ground and there were trees that were uprooted.

I didn't really mind it, because it will help me hone my senses and increase my body's reflexes by dodging all the holes while going at my fastest speed.

This is where I begin to truly become the strongest.
