Subject:Mission Assignment
Time:8:51 pm.
Kotetsu, Izumo, you have an assignment.Collapse )
Comments: Read 2 orAdd Your Own.

Subject:Letter to Kazekage and Suna Group.
Time:8:00 pm.
Kazekage-dono,

Hearing of the re-established safety of your village and country brought me great relief while also still distressing to think that such a terrible event even took place. I offer my condolences on any and all of your losses, as well as my best wishes for your village as it rebuilds its prosperity.

While there have been troubles between Suna and Konoha in the past, even more important than war is the building and healing of peace and alliances. I hope our two nations will be able to continue to build such relationships that will last long and steadfast into the future, so that other generations may see the importance and strength that comes from such bonds.

As such, I, Godaime Hokage, am sending you, Rokudaime Kazekage, relief for your village in the forms of some of my best shinobi and the enclosed finacial aid. These shinobi do include: Hatake Kakashi, our top jounin; Uzumaki Naruto, who I believe you are already acquainted with; Uchiha Sasuke, of our village's infamous Uchiha clan; Haruno Sakura, my personal disciple and talented medic-nin; and my two assistance and messangers of this letter, Hagane Kotetsu and Kamizuki Izumo.

I do request the return of Shiranui Genma, Tatami Iwashi, and Maito Gai and his team however, as their specific services are needed back here in Konoha. I will send more help upon out ability to spare more hands. Please accept these tokens of peace, as well as my personal hope and extension of friendship.

-Godaime Hokage

Subject:All Konoha Report Please
Time:10:04 pm.
Mood: lazy.
Note to self: Don't DO Fine Shizune... Don't leave window open on gusty day when you have a large pile of reports on your desk. Especially if you also have the sprinkler system on below and you recently sent your two favorite lackeys on missions. Stupid missions that were supposed to punish them for letting the Kazekage out of their sight. This was not suppose to come back and bite me in the butt!


Attention to all Leaf shinobi still within village-limits:

Due to an unfortunate mishap with paperwork, I will need all shinobi still available within the village to leave a report below with your current status, both in health and any projects occupying your time. And don't bore me with tiny details/complaints. Just the gist of your situation is all I need.

Mission assignments to follow shortly after your report comes in. That is all.

Thank you.

Subject:[Konoha Eyes Only]
Time:8:57 pm.
Mood: busy.
Two days ago I sent a four-man team to aid and relieve Suna of Orochimaru's control. That team was comprised of Hatake Kakashi's old genin team, with the exception of replacing Uchiha Sasuke with another adequate chuunin (one Sashimi Otaro). Because sending that snake's object of desire right to him would have been the most reckless, destructive, moronic thing ever.

This morning I get the report that Sashimi Otaro was found tied, gagged, and locked into one of the administration building's janitor closests. This is followed by a report that Uchiha Sasuke is no where to be found. My conclusion?

DAMNED UCHIHA BRAT!!! WHEN HE GETS BACK TO KONOHA, I'M GOING TO GIVE HIM A LIST OF THE MOST HUMILIATING GRUNT-WORK, THAT I'LL HAVE TO MAKE UP AN E-CLASS FOR MISSIONS, JUST BECAUSE THEY WILL BE THAT LOW IN RANKING!!! DEMOTION!! UCHIHA SASUKE IS OFFICIALLY DEMOTED TO CADET AND I'M SENDING HIM BACK TO THE ACADEMY!!!

BUT FIRST I HAVE TO MAKE SURE HE GETS BACK.


Maito Gai, your team has a mission.Collapse )


...And of course now I get the report that the Kazekage himself has vanished. Izumo, Kotetsu! You were supposed to watch him! Jeez. While I don't have any authority over the Wind Shadow, I can at least see to it that he has some decent escorts. Izumo, Kotetsu, I am NOT looking at you.


Genma, Iwashi.Collapse )


Missions are piling up and will be distributed to the remainder of you shortly. Stand ready.

How did Sarutobi-sensei do this all the time...?

Time:6:28 pm.
Mood: drunk.
Heads will roll.

Particularly Uchiha's.

I devised an absolutely brilliant plan while I was piss drunk at the festival sitting in my office signing important documents. Toilets. He'd going to clean the bedpans of three wards for about three to four months. AND if I get any cheek from that brat, I will make him change the diapers at the baby ward as well.

Does anyone else feel like disobeying orders now?

Good.

Onto more pressing matters! The festival was a success, not to mention my apprentice returned just in time for it! The individual acts on the stage were amazing. (Female Konoha ninjas usually are) I'm glad, it seemed like everyone worked hard on their presentations. And that's all I remember before I hit the floor-- er, bar. Finally! It was relieving to see everyone relaxed and enjoying themselves. Konoha's been through such hard times lately and we really deserved a break. Even Shizune! You and Genma. BWAHAH! I knew I didn't just walk in on some kind of ACCIDENT.

I think I'm still a bit tipsy from the other day.

The council tells me that Izumo came to a meeting dressed up as me while I was away. I dearly hope that this is still me being tipsy because if it isn't, I assure you, heads will roll. Again.

And now I am swamped with paperwork, moreso because I left SOME PEOPLE in charge and they.. well, I don't know what they did with it and our diplomatic relations have seemed to decline lately. The Kazekage better not have been at that meeting or god knows what kind of trouble we'll be in for the next couple of years. Not to mention, I need to assign some Rank D missions for our beautiful green DELINQUENT, ROCK LEE.

*hiccup*

Don't think that just because I had something to drink, I won't make any harsh decisions. Because I will.

And where's Tonton?

OOC: I'm going to post this ahead of time before I leave so you guys can get on with the plotline and the battles over with.

Also, Orochi-player, I'm really sorry but you can finish the fight if you want. When I get back though, if you still want to RP it out, anything is fine with me. :3

PLEASE READ AFTER YOUR BATTLES COME TO A CLOSE!Collapse )

Time:8:35 pm.
Mood: anxious.
It's ironic that the one time where I shut myself off in the office, is also when I get next to no work done. I haven't been able to properly concentrate lately.. This place is a complete pigsty, Shizune would be horrified. I've also noticed that Shizune's leave seems a lot longer than I had hoped for.. So Orochimaru really is planning something after all. Tch, so much for trying to be optimistic. If this really is the case though, then even a group of elite jounin aren't going to be enough. The last confrontation I had with snakeface really gave Shizune and me a run for our money. Figuratively speaking, of course. Though, I never did find the money I got from that jackpot beforehand.. I'm not saying I'm much weaker than him, but if it means him and Kabuto.. accompanied by the rest of his Sound crew in HIS territory.. Damn, I should've made a move on my own.

This is a bad time, but.. Kotetsu and Izumo, I have to leave things to you to er, well not only paperwork, but just keep the village stable for a while. And please, I have to set these basic ground rules while I'm gone:

1.) No womanizing on the job.
2.) No womanizing in the administration building, even if you are off duty. (I've received some complaints)
3.) No womanizing IN MY OFFICE.
4.) No going through my desk drawers. (It's locked and the key is.. in a rather secure place, with me)
5.) Konoha's safety and stability first, women second, drinking third.

I'm not accusing you dear sweet sweet boys of anything, but this is just a heads up.

Also, I've received word that Gaara, the new Kazekage, entered the village a few days ago. The details as to why are a bit hazy since I haven't left this office in days.. but with my deepest sincerities, I think I'll have to make him wait a bit longer. I trust one of you will send him the memo.

In the meantime, I'm making double haste for Otougakure. Things could get ugly.

Mood: stressed.
My fears seem to have been dutifully sealed with a stamp.

I received a note not too long ago with the familiar elegant scribble I had seen one too many times before. It's from that snake, that goddamn SNAKE.

Letter.Collapse )

So he has been watching my moves after all. I need to find Shizune right now.

SHIZUNE ONLY; URGENT.Collapse )

We're going to play your game then, Orochimaru. You want stealth? I'll make sure you get it-- and a clear foot up the ass.

.. Damn, this is the best I can do right now. This and what seems like an unsuccessful attempt of notifying one of Sakura's closest friends. I was planning not to, maybe get this whole thing sorted without too much damage or rumors floating around, but it seemed that Ino had picked up on this and qusetioned me about it. All I can say from that was, NOBODY becomes cheeky with me, ESPECIALLY in a situation like this. Che, I don't know what kids are thinking these days. I stressed the importance of telling no one, especially the members of Sakura's team. That Uzumaki Naruto and Uchiha are as headstrong as they are talented.. Apart from hoping for the best for Sakura's safety, now I also have to hope that Ino won't blab to her friends by mistake. I've noticed gossiping is quite popular among these teens.


Sakura.. do all that you can to stay.. alive. I know I've taught you enough to fend for yourself.. So just hold on.

Mood: anxious.
I was never one for office work, yet here I am, reading over mission briefings for the 20th time. I've been up all night actually. It started when I took a quick lunch break this afternoon and had some nice afternoon tea sake and dango when I noticed a giant crack running down the side of my cup. That familiar cold chill ran down my spine; this was a bad omen.

So for the first time I willingly flung myself into the office and sifted through all sorts of papers. The first thought that ran through my head was that it must have something to do with the missions-- what else could it be? The only problem is, oh I don't know, I sent a huge CHUNK of the Chuunins out on missions in the past week. I could always issue a recall and have them all return but that'd be taking a hunch too far. Quite frankly, even Hokages can have their doubts..

As consolation though, I'm going to gather a squad on standby incase anything happens. I made a promise at both my grandfather and Sarutobi's grave and I don't intend on breaking it. Shizune, in spite of your mountainous load of work, I'm looking towards you to organize that.

Heh, this really is unsettling. Now I can't even enjoy my evening tea.

Anko only.Collapse )

Time:1:22 am.
Mood: productive.
Things have been going well. Wages are back up, the townspeople are finally healthy, and I'm even cutting back on the drinking. It wasn't a pleasant idea to be hung over during a meeting with the official council. I feel as if the town's progress is starting to become.. in a way.. my progress perhaps? This a bit awkward to say in my own journal though. Maybe this is what my grandfather felt on a grander scale. I remember he would come to see me on weekends and festivals no matter how busy he was. I guess that's why growing up, I was always proud of him in a way. I don't think I've ever actually envisioned myself as Hokage. It was always Nawaki.. It seemed that his spirit was more than enough of the position, heh. All the while, I felt that I was the big sister or even the maternal figure. And then here I am, in the office. The most peculiar thing about this job is that I thought it to be really strict, demanding and exhausting. And well, I admit it is. But there is so much more than I had ever anticipated. I didn't realize it until I had a few bottles of sake and dango [ that's not the point though! ] but I feel the village has really started to thrive. I find myself knowing a lot more of the people personally rather than as acquaintances. I don't think I've ever fully understood or believed my grandfather when he told me that leaves always catch fire, but not in destruction. He said it in a blazing, courageous way. One that burns with power and light. It's funny, I always figured it was some cheap saying of how everyone is special. But you know.. With age comes wisdom, I suppose.

Straying away from those oh-so-deep thoughts, I hope it will be known to the administration that I absolutely REFUSE to give Hagane Kotetsu a weeklong break. Do you have any idea how much work can be accomplished in a week?! And what is it for? To romance one of my best jounins?! It's not acceptable. [ Kotetsu, if you snuck into my room again and are reading this now, it is NOT out of jealousy. ] I'm going to talk to Kei whether you like it or not. I think she needs a briefing on this..

And someone else who needs a briefing? Haruno Sakura. I've received a request a few days ago for a specialized medical nin to treat the Hidden Village of Mist. Apparently there's been some serious pollution in their reservoir and half the village is bed-ridden. I'm a little nervous about giving her this mission but she's been so energetic and hard-working through everything. No complaints at all. I appreciate it but somehow I have an.. odd feeling about this. But a mission is a mission and someone qualified needs to do it. So..

...

Oh great, I just remembered my birthday's in a few days. *slaps forehead* I hope people don't do that ridiculous game where they have to guess your age.. If so, I refuse to participate.

NOTICE TO ALL SHINOBI.Collapse )

I dismissed Sakura early yesterday. She had the scalpel technique going well for her, but all she needed was to practice keeping her hand steady. [ Fluff everywhere. Damned bears. ] Kotetsu was the only one that came in for the meeting. I'm still wondering exactly WHO assigned Izumo to clean the toilets.. That kid is cute. He really knows how to get things done. Seems a tad.. preoccupied with women though. It's almost surprising how instead of being distracted by them, he almost INCORPORATES them into his job. But I'm not one of them. I got YEARS on that kid. But maybe if I were a few years younger.. Promiscuity does not guarantee maturity, I'll tell you. I think he tried to get one on me a few times. Bold, if you ask me. Almost as bold as Jiraiya in his prime. Nothing happened when we went out for drinks after his shift though. [ It was just a very WELL-DESERVED BREAK for the both of us ] Something tells me he wanted to, but thinking of the horrendous violation of code that is and the fact that I'm.. well.. let's say a more mature woman, it's unthinkable. What are kids thinking these days? It's something in the water. *sigh* Do I honestly have to consult the jounin and host some assembly for abstinence and cutting back on the raging SEX that is going on? Just because I'm holed up here in my office doesn't mean I'm not aware of the things going on. [ Refer to: Shizune and Genma housing incident ] Maybe I really should consult the council and switch the water reserves..

In terms of old friends, I gave Jiraiya a little run for his money. Considering he's been training so hard with Naruto, I decided to.. help him out with his studies. What better than an assistant to make sure he gets all of his work done on time? I'm sure you avid readers out there will thank me for this. [ I'm looking at you, Kakashi ] No disagreements there, eh? I made sure that the assistant was a MALE and not a female. Horrible things could happen if it were a female. I think his editor told me stories.. Anyway, this assistant is supposed to be top-of-the-line PUSHY and work work work. Heh, I love old friends. In any case, I'm looking forward to hearing about his progress. He was always a hard worker-- just needed a little push is all.

Alright, my joints are stiff as hell and I think my muscles just went into atrophy. Maybe I can ask Shizune if she has any of those lavender oils left. I need them.

Time:12:36 am.
Mood: tired.
The past few days have been non-stop work. I fell asleep on top of my paperwork again. This makes for the third time in a row. I guess you could say I pulled an "all-nighter." [ Speaking of all-nighters, I wonder where Kotetsu is.. ]

I still don't get what the big deal is with drinking sake in the morning. It's just sake. "None of the bars are open during the daytime, Tsunade-sama!" But when you're Hokage, shouldn't they be opening up at your will? That'd be paradise. Maybe they could even implement Pachinko machines in the local bars as well. Hm.. I should look into this later.

Well, those matters aside, I'm beginning to remember what it is to teach again. I haven't taught anyone this thoroughly and harshly since Shizune. Sakura is doing a great job, but I have to keep pushing her. With students, you can't keep showering them with compliments. It just feeds the ego. We need to make them smart. Make them mature. Make them quick and concise. Kakashi told me about her shrewdness, but I didn't expect her to pick up intermediate techniques at only a beginner's level. I was quite impressed. Still, she continues to improve. I find that the only obstacle she seems to have is self-doubt. Looks like medicine isn't the only thing I need to enlighten my apprentice on.

Interestingly enough, word is that Jiraiya and Naruto are returning to the village soon, if they're not already here. Those two.. It's funny how similar they are. I look at Naruto and not only do I see Nawaki and Dan's passion, I see Jiraiya in his youthful days fooling around, being obnoxious as he always was. Those days slipped by so fast.. Hopefully Jiraiya hasn't corrupted his apprentice with his perverted ways.. That hentai. Bah and I told myself that I wouldn't let nostalgia catch up to me. It's true that it shouldn't, I don't have time as Hokage to dawdle around in such fantasies.

It's just that I would have no idea what I would do if there was another Jiraiya in the world. -__-;

Which means I need to educate MY apprentice in the art of beauty and strength.

Lately there's just been an overflow of mission requests from the Tea, Rock, and Snow countries. I've been really giving the Chuunins of Konoha a workout, [ particularly Yamanaka Ino, I'm seeing her name everywhere on these forms ] but it's just how things happen, I guess.

Looking at this stack of papers.. I think I'm going to go for that morning sake now.

Subject:Weakness... and then strength
Time:2:18 pm.
Mood: Got things done.
I became weak.

That, of course, I am not proud of.

Yet I was weak..... in the times where it counted the most.

The jr. Doctor brat really surprised me for figuring out how to move his body well enough to fight even though I disrupted his central nervous system's electricity flow. Then right before the kid was about to do something, Jiraiya, Shizune and Naruto came... I couldn't believe that even naruto came to try to help out.

Too bad I shoved Jiraiya out of the way. Oh well.... then the brat took out his Kunai. Insted of attacking me..... he let out his blood. Damn that brat for doing that! In my... state of shock... I didn't see him when he punched me and sent me flying.

Shizune helped to get me back together... at least, a little. I didn't pay much attention to the battle as it went on, and then I knew that Shizune left me.... well, after Orochimaru summoned those two snakes....

only to fight against the brat and have the stength of her legs seeped out by the brat. He then threw her at my feet. Then I saw everyone else.. Naruto..... Jiraiya.. and then the brat had the galls to start kicking me.

Though I couldn't stop it - the blood...... the blood....

Though right before the brat was about to punch me hard enough -- Naruto steps in front of him and received the blow. I couldn't believe it. one second he was lying there, barely able to move, and then he's there, taking ANOTHER blow...

this kid is amazingly perseverant

after the first try at rasengan.... the brat told Naruto to give up - and his talk about how a Hokage shouldn't run away really had me thinking.

..... though Naruto didn't back down. He surprised me by taking in the kunai into his hand, and grabbing the older brat... and performing the rasengan.

He mastered it in seven days. kids these days are AMAZING

So the other brat wsa down for the count.... as was Naruto, who suddenly started coughing up blood. The brat started telling me how he had made Naruto's heart muscles be beyond repair... how he had made it difficult for naruto to be able to heal...

BULL I tell ya. BULL.

I don't know how, but I tried my best to try to heal the boy....then again, my only thought right there was "Don't die" and I was surprised that he raised a hand to grab the necklace to say, "The bet.... I won..."

.
.
.
.
Heh.... what a kid... I gently raised his head and gave him the necklace... though he was now sleeping - I bet after expelling that much chakra, he needed some rest.

Orochimaru, for some reason, decided that he'd want to off Naruto just because he'd cause him problems later on. Heh, I wouldn't let him lay a FINGER on the future Hokage of Konoha... to protect the future of Konoha. It's his dream, after all. Though that sword that kinda went through my chest and out my back wasn't too good a thing. Orochimaru then slashed me on my shoulder... because I said that Naruto would be the Hokage of Konoha. Snake-face tried to kill naruto again while I was on the floor. Heh, didn't work out. I rolled over, and propped myself up to protect naruto from being hurt more than he was - though Snake-face also got another hit at me at my right side.

"You worthless trash" he said. I admit it - I was shaking with all the blood..... MY blood... that was covering me. Then I just thought to myself, "This is stupid - it's inevitable to see blood if there's a fight between ninja." I rationalized..... and I stopped trembling. I didn't even give snake-face time to react - I threw him away to get him away from naruto. Heh.... "Why am I doing this?" I said... well, the answer is quite simple. "Because now, I'm the 5th Hokage of the Hidden Leaf."

For some reason, Jiraiya was already back up [though that's good] since we all summoned the top of the top of our summoning animals. Manda, Gamabunta, and Katsuya were all present - though Manda was angry at Orochimaru for bringing him out [and what about 100 sacrifices? The hell?]

Well, to conclude that fight, I took Gamabunta's sword when he let it go, and I drove the sword onto Manda's mouth. That, for me, was the best finish ever to any fight with the biggest of all the summoning animals between the sannin of Konoha.


Yet, soemthing tells me that Orochimaru will STILL try to find a way to screw up Konoha in one way or another

So now I'm thinking to myself, "So... I'm the 5th Hokage of the Hidden Leaf..." I've got a lot of things to take care of once I get there.

Though We need to get some food before we leave - Shizune, Jiraiya... I wanna eat over at that place where we met before this whole load of crap landed on us, alright? Just for my sake. [well, to get some Sake, at least.]

Subject:Finally, the day has come.
Time:10:39 pm.
Mood: Royally Pissed Off.
All this time, I was reminiscing on everything that's happened to me and why I needed to do what I needed to do I tried everything - gambling with dice, going to the pachinko parlors, going to the slots, blackjack, poker... EVERYTHING. Yet nothing seemed to help me out at all. Nothing seemed to help me stamp out the uneasiness that I had this whole time. Then later on last night, I put a certain drug that I made in Jiraiya's cup - sweet dreams, frog-face, 'cause you'll be hurting by the time morning comes went on to drink with Jiraiya - just a couple of cups of Sake.

We talked, and I left a little later while he stayed at the sake-bar, sleeping like a log drinking to his heart's content. When I returned, Shizune had brought in Naruto-kun from God-knows-where, and he was already unconscious when I arrived. With his hands burned with his Chakra, I knew that he wouldn't be able to move at all, nor be awake by the next day - more like, the day after he really pushed himself hard - Tch, how could I get so careless? It wasn't even a fair thing to begin with. Oh well, I'll probably let him keep his bag of money just because I'm a nice person.

Then, Shizune aksked me what I was going to do...

I simply didn't reply. I mean, why in hell should I? it was going to be *MY* choice anyhow. Aside from that, she should learn to respect her elders. Pffft, saying that she'd kill me even if it cost her very own life. Yeah - right. I'm the one that's taught her a lot of things. That doesn't mean I've taught her EVERYTHING that I know - that would just defeat the purpose in a way. So, I just had to deal with her by means of knocking the wind out of her and making her black-out. Nifty jutsu if you ask me


Then I just had to deal with Orochimaru. bastard - made my mascara go all over the place because of my tears

Sure - I met up with him, and I saw that he was alone - his cronie was not to be seen anywhere. Well, I made him promise that in return for healing his arms, he wouldn't touch the Hidden Leaf. He said okay lying worm and I proceeded to try to Kill him, for that's what the scaly worm deserves "heal" him, when his cronie comes out of nowhere and throws a kunai between the two of us.

I have to give that brat the credit - he's been raised to be a good medical-nin. Right on par with Shizune

Of course, the brat told Orochimaru that I had tried to murder the worm like the trash that he is kill him.

Well, not that the cat was out of the bag, there was no reason to hold back what I felt.

Sure: contempt, anger murderous intent, regret, and most of all, the feeling of looking and acting like a total and complete idiot, moron, whatever - If anyone says that about me though, they'll be given a one-way ticket to a coma, and bets are that they're going to be like that for over a year. futility at the thought of my wishes - wishes that are absurd.

It's because of Naruto's words that awakened all those feelings... all those memories. Their wishes.

.
.
.


I guess that's what pushed me to try to go it alone. Oh, too bad that street had to be torn to rubble. A kick from me tends to do that sort of thing.


Tch........ now I'm having to deal with two idiots - "snake-face" and "Medic brat know-it-all Jr".

God, I hate it when crap like this happens.

Subject:It's like a strange and perverse reunion of sorts after all these years
Time:3:20 pm.
Mood: miserable.
I knew that I should have gone out of this blasted place before. But Nooo, Shizune insisted that we stay.

Well, after hearing from Orochimaru, I had no choice to have to stay in this rotten place for a whole damn week. As Shizune and I were eating our dinner, and drinking Well, I was the one drinking a whole lot. Still, good sake was being served. Could I certainly refuse?, guess who else decided to drop by? *shakes her head* I swear, it's as if they're all out to get to me.

We had yakitori, and then Jiraiya landed me with the bombshell of a question - if *I* wanted to become the 5th Hokage.

.
.
.

I thought he was insane. Why would anyone want *me* to become the hokage? Anyhow, being the hokage is like saying that your life is easily gambled and that you don't care for shit in this world. Of course, I declined. Hell, I can gamble with money and not care, but gambling with my life - not a chance in THIS world. Then Jiraiya's apprentice came out and told me not to disrespect the hokage or the 4th for that matter - that he'd beat the crap out of me, woman or not.

Heh, I can't believe the little squirt would just come out and tell me that straight off. He showed that he had guts, but he's still a pathetic little genin. Anyhow, I told him that if he wanted to settle things, we could take it outside. Since he's just an inexperienced brat, I told him that only one finger would be enough. Even though I dealt with him, [and before he passed out, or so I thought he would], I asked him why he got so excited when I mentioned the word "Hokage".

His answer left me speechless for a moment. HE said that he aspired to be Hokage, because.... that was his dream.



Nawaki...... Dan....

Then he came at me with a seriously weak version of the lacking form of the rasengan. Since he was charging at me, I had little time to react - so the only way to get at him was down - on the ground. Yep, opening up a crack large enough for the kid to come crashing down with one finger. I still got it. *polishes her nails*


Feh, I can't believe that Jiraiya was teaching him the rasengan. a top level technique for a brat like this one? Then the kid told me that he'd only need three days to master it and then he'd show me that I was wrong. Fine. Then, I made a deal with the brat : if he could master it in seven days, then I'd give him my necklace that I've carried with me ever since... those days long ago. Seven days and in those seven, I have to see whether or not I'll accept the deal that he made with me

So then Jiraiya told Shizune to take Naruto [as I learned later on what his name was] to go look for a place to spend the night while He and I would go drink someplace.

Fair.

Then he told me about the meaning of being a Hokage I didn't need the damn lecture, thank you very much, that if I betray the leaf, he'd kill me. It’s not something that has to deal with me directly, so I don’t give a…. well maybe I do. Maybe.

Anyhow, I asked him why he brought the brat along.

He just brought painful memories of both Nawaki and Dan. Why did Jiraiya have to bring the kid to remind me of something that hurts so much? Same dream... same enthusiasm... same sense of responsibility.

Later on, I sat by myself on the floor in a hallway, away from other people and started reminiscing about the past.

It hurts so much, that it pains me to even start speaking about it again - I want to see them again, touch them again, if even for a moment….

Subject:... I have an odd feeling...
Time:8:15 am.
I won at betting today.

That's a rare thing in and of itself, yet somehow, it gives me a sense of a bad omen for some reason, even though Shizune was telling me what good luck we had this day. Despite this, I told her that we should get out of Tenzaku and into some other place. It was giving me the creeps.

Though, Shizune insisted that we take a look at the castle before we leave this place. She and tonton were admiring the view okay, so I admit, it was kinda okay for a castle when snake-face decided that he wanted to drop by and have a small chat with me.

Not only that, he was also with a cronie, a brat with silver hair and glasses. It seemed that they both wanted to make a proposition to me, one that they felt was something that would behoove me if I helped them... if I helped Orochimaru by healing him

Still, I don't like this - him showing himself up like this...
