"Sorry I'm late girls, had to take a message to Iruka sensei and relive him of his charge," stated Ino, as she indicated to Nato hiding behind her leg.
"No problem, come on you two, sit down so that we can introduce ourselves," suggested Tenten, tapping the grass next to her.
Ino and Nato sat down on the grass but she noticed that Nato was obviously shy and decided to begin the introductions.
"I'll start, OK. I'm Ino Yamanaka, my favourite Jutsu is the Mind Body Switch and I work part time at my parents flower shop."
"I'm next, Sakura Haruno, apprentice to the Hokage and advanced med-nin," stated Sakura.
"I'm Tenten, I work at my parents' armoury shop, making me a weapons expert," said Tenten.
"I'm Hinata Hyuga, the heir to the Hyuga Clan. I am engaged to Naruto Uzumaki, who is currently on a mission for you Kazekage," explained Hinata.
"I'm Hanabi, Hinata's younger sister," said Hanabi.
"Um...my name is Nato. I'm from Suna. I have two possessions that I never leave out of my

"Well, would you look at that," stated Iruka, "with all our talking, it looks like we've ended up at the Academy."
Nato looked up at the building in awe.
"Would you like a tour?" he asked. Nato just nodded, too lost for words as they entered the complex.
"So, that's the tour. Let's sit down in the staff room and I'll fill you in on the courses," said Iruka as he brought Nato a drink out of the staff fridge.
"We teach the normal stuff, you know. Reading, math, the boring stuff, Ninja abilities, Tai, Gen and Nin Jutsu, and for girls like you flower arrangements to blend in on missions. Any questions Nato?" Asked Iruka, wondering how this kid could sit still for this long a period.
"What do you have to do to graduate?" asked Nato, putting the drink aside for a second.
"Graduation? Well you'll have a boring test that you have to write the answers in, a practical in which you show us what you've learnt. When the Konoha 12 came through here they were most in my class. They had to c

The next day Kankuro and Temari entered the Kazekage's office as requested by their brother. They were surprised to see a Suna citizen being this close to Gaara. Gaara had Nato sitting on his lap as he explained the history of the village. They tried to be discrete about their surprise but Gaara caught them.
"Temari, Kankuro, I'd like you to meet someone," said Gaara, startling his sibling, "this is Nato," indicating to the girl on his lap. He was met with silence so he continued.
"She will be travelling with us back to Konoha, she is to be the first student exchanged between the villages. The last member of her family, her brother has recently passed away, she like so many is alone but I think that with nurture, the best can be brought out in these cases," stated Gaara, "I was told by Naruto before he left for his mission that Iruka Sensei is a very friendly instructor at Konoha's academy. I think he will be able to guide her in her journey in the same manner that he helped

"Damn, that was difficult," Naruto stated to Gaara as they entered Gaara and Matsuri's Kage living quarters . "I felt like running back."
"I'm sorry. I should have thought about your relationship, Sorry." said Gaara.
"No need to apologise, It was my idea, I have to deal with the consequences," said Naruto.
"OK, what do you say you get your gear and I'll get Matsuri. Than we can set up your disguise." said Gaara making his way to the door.
When he got back with Matsuri, they were surprised to see a young student sitting on the table crying her eyes out. Matsuri was immediately at her side rocking her soothingly asking what the problem was.
"It's the day my brother left us," she replied breaking out in to uncontrollable sobs.
"OK Naruto, enough, that's a winner," said Gaara, as Matsuri looked on in confusion. The little girl jumped off the table and dispelled the Transformation Technique. There stood Naruto with a pleased look on his face.
"What's going on here!?" exclaimed Mat
