This Story Needs no Title

Chapter 20

-2 Weeks Later, October 10th-

"Sakura-chan!" Naruto waved as he saw her walking towards them.

"Hi Naruto!" Sakura said. "Sasuke."

"Sakura," Sasuke said.

"So Sakura-chan," Naruto said. "I heard Kurenai gave birth this morning. I bet Guy-sensei is happy!"

"How did you know it was Guy's?" Sakura asked.

"Well, her first as Asuma-sensei's," Naruto said. "But since he is no longer with us, I knew it could only be his."

"What about Kakashi-sensei?" Sakura asked.

"Sakura-chan," Naruto said. "He's been dating Iruka-sensei for over seven years."

"I know," Sakura said. "I was just joking."

"I also heard Ino went in for a check up," Naruto said. "Is it a boy or a girl?"

"Ino will have to tell you," Sakura smiled. "You are going to the party tonight? Right?"

"Sure!" Naruto said. "As long as no one gives Lee any Sake."

"If anyone does, I'll give them a beating," Sakura said holding up her fist.

"So who's coming?" Naruto asked.

"Team 10, Team 8, Team Guy, all of our senseis, Tsunade-sama, Shizune-sempai, Karin, Suigetsu, Jugo, and some others."

"Good! It is going to be fun!" Naruto saw the sign that tomatoes were going on sale. "I'll be right back!" He ran off.

Sakura turned to Sasuke. "You did it, didn't you?"

"Did what?" Sasuke asked.

"Broke down his walls," Sakura said.

"Some of them," Sasuke smiled. "There are still some up, but I plan or crashing through them."

"I'm glad you guys are together," Sakura said. "Now all of the original Rookie Nine are either married or dating someone. Did Naruto tell you that Hinata and Sai are getting married?"

"He told me yesterday."

"I'm amazed that she can put up with Sai."

"What about you and Lee? When is the wedding?"

"It's in four months. Ino is gonna be my maid of honor. I think Lee is gonna pick Neji or Naruto to be his best man. I told him if he picked Guy-sensei I'd say no at the altar."

Sasuke chuckled. "I think Naruto would look good in a tux."

"Oh I bet he would."

"Any word from the Sand Siblings?"

"Temari is moving to Konoha and Neji will be moving there. It is an equal trade."

"And Tenten and Kankuro?"

"I don't really know. They don't talk about it a lot."

"I see."

"You know, I won't forgive you if you hurt Naruto."

"I won't. I'll never leave his side."

"Good. 'Cause if you do, you'll have not only me, but an angry fox, a pissed off brother, and several Yaoi fan-girls after you."

Sasuke groaned. "I'll never get rid of fan-girls will I?"

"Nope!" Sakura smiled.

"Sasuke!" Naruto yelled. "Look!" He was carrying several bags. "They had a sale on tomatoes and ramen!"

Sakura burst out laughing. The store had a sale on the two things that will be sold out after tomorrow. "Sasuke, you look so happy," she teased. "Love tomatoes that much?"

"Not as much as I love the man holding the tomatoes," Sasuke said. Sakura fell silent and blushed. "Hey Naruto!" Sasuke walked over to Naruto. "I think I have an idea what to do with those tomatoes."

"Soup? Spaghetti sauce?" Naruto asked.

"Sure," Sasuke smirked. "Sure." He pulled Naruto and the two headed back to the Uzumaki Compound.

"I think Sasuke has been around Kakashi-sensei too much," Sakura said to herself. "Or may be it's Jiriya-sama or Kurama. Great! Now there are four perverts." She walked past Ebisu who was talking to Konohamaru. "Make that five."

"What's this?" Naruto saw an envelope on the ground just outside the barrier. He picked it up.

"Why don't you open it and find out," Sasuke said.

"Do you think it's safe?" Naruto asked.

"Have a clone open it then," Sasuke said.

"Right," Naruto said. He made a clone. The clone opened the envelope. Nothing happened. The clone then handed the envelope to the original Naruto and vanished. "Guess it's safe." He took out the letter and began to read it. It read:

Dear Naruto Uzumaki,

I finally found the courage to tell Nagato how I feel about him. And he told me he felt the same way. We agreed to leave Akatsuki and we hope you will find it in your heart to forgive us. I know what we did was wrong, so if you choose not to forgive us, I won't hold it against you. If you do, then I'd like to invite you and Sasuke Uchiha to our wedding. It will be held on December 3rd. Ask Itachi were the Rose hideout is and that is where we are gonna have it. He can come too. Feel free to bring others. I'm hoping to see you there.

Also, I wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday. A gift should arrive soon after this letter. We are having a dog deliver it to you. Don't worry, he'd friendly. I'm sure you will love the gift. Sorry it's not ramen. I know you love ramen but it is not healthy for you. So keep eating home cooked meals with lots of greens.

Lastly, I'd like to thank you. You have changed my life. You showed me that even as a ninja I have a right to love whomever I want. I gained courage after we talked and every time I remember you, it grew. I want to apologize for out last attack on Konoha. As I said, it will never happen again. I don't know what happened to the other members of Akatsuki, so I can't say they won't attack you, but I hope they won't. I wish you the best of luck!

Love,

Konan

Ps. I think you would make a great Hokage.

Naruto read the letter twice. Sasuke read it with him the second time. Naruto was shocked to have gotten such a letter. Soon, a dog walked up to them and handed Naruto a small package. The dog sat down at Sasuke's feet as if waiting for something. Naruto opened the package. There was a collar and a note inside. The note read:

I thought that a pet would be good for you. And what better than one that can change into any animal? He's made of a special paper that does not burn or get wet. To change him, just tell him. He is loyal and obedient. And best of all, he does not need to be taken care of. His name is Yahiko.

"So what do you think, Naruto?" Sasuke asked.

"I think I have to go talk to the Hokage," Naruto said.

"Why?" Sasuke asked.

"I have a job offer I have to accept," Naruto said teleporting away.

Sasuke smirked. "Well, Yahiko." He picked made a few signs then picked up the dog. "I guess this means you are now apart of the family." Sasuke walked through the barrier and into the house. Itachi, Kurama, Karin, Suigetsu, and Jugo were sitting in the living room.

"Where's Naruto?" Itachi asked.

Sasuke smiled. "He's about to make someone put his face on the mountain." He set Yahiko down. "Konoha is gonna get a lot crazier."

Kurama laughed. "Guess this story has only just begun."

"What's the title?" Suigetsu asked pushing the joke.

Sasuke sat down next to Itachi. "This story needs no title."
