"Even if you have all the qualifications, it won't be able to prepare you for what you have to do as a Hokage."
"I can learn as I go and I will have Shikaku beside me. He is good enough to tutor me on the things I lack."
'I can't deny that he is a fine candidate to become Hokage, but he is too inexperienced.'
"I will need to discuss this with the Elders. I can't make this decision alone."
'At least he is considering it.'
"That's okay, just make sure to tell them everything I did for this village and its inhabitants."
"I'm sure they already know."
"Oh yeah, I hope you don't let Danzo influence you. I heard that you have a really big soft spot for him. But you are the Hokage. You can't let emotions rule your judgment and from what I've seen, that is exactly what you have been doing."
'He is right, I have always been like that. Why did you have to become like this, Danzo?'
"Get me out of here, I need to get back and stabilize the village."
I sent us back outside.
"I'll be going, I hope you take what I said to heart."
I went towards Hinata and Shikamaru.
"You two look beat."
"Not everyone is a stamina monster like you." said Shikamaru
"Then I'll just have to fix that by upping your training."
"Wait, Naruto please don't. I won't survive it if you make it even harder." pleaded Hinata
"I'm doing this for your own good, Hinata. There will be no whining."
She looked a little scared.
"You guys should go home and rest. The enemies are already defeated."
"I'm too tired to move."
I picked her up in a princess carry."
"What are you doing Naruto!"
"Since you're so tired I'll give you the honor to be carried by me."
"Baka (Idiot)! You always try to embarrass me in public."
"If you hate it so much why do you always have a smile when I do it."
She looked away not answering me.
"We'll we going, you don't need to be carried to, right?"
"You better stay away before I incinerate you."
"You suddenly got balls, well that just means extra training for you."
I could see the horror on his face.
I was running over the roofs.
"Where are you taking me Naruto."
"I'm taking you home."
"You know that my house is the other way."
"I'm taking you to your new house."
"What, but you're going towards your house. This is too soon. I haven't prepared for anything yet."
"Oh, so you're okay with the idea."
Her face turned bright red.
"Yes." She said in an almost inaudible voice
'This girl is too easy.'
"Don't get the wrong idea, I'm not kidnaping you. I'm just taking you home to cook you some food."
She looks disappointed.
"I've you really want to live with me, you just have to ask. You're always welcome."
We arrived at my apartment. We entered and I put her on my bed to get some rest. I made her some food and we ate together.
I picked up some juice and started drinking it.
"I want to sleep with you tonight."
I spew all the juice out of my mouth. Luckily I faced away from Hinata.
"What are you suddenly talking about. We are too young for that."
'Why is he reacting like this. It's just sleeping. Wait wasn't there something about sleeping with someone in dad's book? Oh no!'
She became completely red.
"I.. I.. I didn't mean.. it like that!"
"You should be careful with what you say. If you want to just sleep, you're always welcome."
She didn't say anything and her face stayed red.
"Go and tell her father that she is staying with me tonight."
[Naruto Clone P.O.V.]
I'm heading towards the Hyuga compound. I'm really contemplating about what I should tell him. I guess I should just be as vague as possible.
I arrived in front of the compound.
"What is your business here?" Asked one of the guards
"I'm here to see the clan leader. Tell him it's about Hinata."
One of the guards went to the clan leader. 5 minutes later he came back.
"He is waiting for you. I'm sure you can find it yourself."
"I'll be fine."
'Why am I getting so much freedom in their clan?'
I arrived in front of the clan leader's room. I entered without knocking.
"What is it."
He doesn't look too happy to see me.
"I'll keep it short. Your daughter asked if she could sleep with me and I agreed."
He jumped at me and hit me with enough force to kill a bear.
I got the memories back from my clone. It seems like he will come here to kill me.
"Ey Hinata, we will stay somewhere else today."
"Your dad wants to kill me so we will have to stay somewhere else."
"We can't hide from him. With the byakugan, he'll be easily able to find us."
"Don't underestimate me."
I summoned two shadow clones.
"You guys know what to do right."
They nodded and one transformed into Hinata.
"Do you really think this is going to work? My father knows my chakra. This won't fool him."
"How about you take a closer look with your byakugan."
"What, how can this be? This chakra is exactly like mine. Even I can't tell the difference."
"I'll explain everything later, we should get going now."
I carried Hinata and disappeared. After 2 minutes of running, we arrived at a pond.
"What are we doing here?"
I jumped in with Hinata in my arms.
"What are you doing!"
When we went into the pond, we didn't get wet. We just passed straight through the water and arrived in an underground base.
"What is this?"
"This is our home for tonight."
"It's so big!"
(AN: That's what she said.)
"We can take a tour tomorrow, let's go to sleep now."
I took her inside the master bedroom. We went to bed and I hugged her to sleep.
'I hope I can also be the little spoon sometimes.'
