*Naruko's P.O.V.*

"Finally!" I cheered as I saw the gates of Konoha. I would be there in about.... now. Hehe. I saw the guards at the gates and they looked up when they heard my footsteps. "Hi!" I chirped happily to them.

"Uh.. Hi." One of them said. "State your name and purpose."

"I'm Naruko Namikaze!" I said cheerily. I'm in a good mood right now. Their eyes widened. Yeah, I know I'm the Fourth's daughter and the Namikaze princess so if I was them I'd be surprised too.

"Go straight to the Hokage. He's in the tallest building, you can't miss it." The other one said.

"Mkay, see ya." I walked into Konoha and searched for the largest building. I found it.

I walked up the flights of stairs and came to a room with 'Hokage' written on it. I knocked on the door and heard a male voice say 'Come in'. I did just that.

I walked in and there was the Hokage, sitting in his chair behind his desk. He looked surprised to see me but then smiled at me, "Hello, what is your name?".

"Naruko Namikaze!" I beamed happily at him.

"Are you Minato's daughter?".


"You look a lot like him."

"I get that a lot, hehe."

"Well, are you a ninja?".

"Yep! And some day I'll be Hokage!".

"Would you like to participate in the Chuunin Exams?".

"Yes, of course I would! Thank you!".

He chuckled and gave me a key, leaf headband and map, "This is the key to where your parents used to live and heres a map so you can find your way around," He took out a little envolope and handed it to me, "And this is some money."

I was grinning from ear to ear. Seriously, I was smiling so much it hurt. I ran behind his desk and hugged him. "Thank you, Hokage-sama!".

"Your welcome, Hime-sama.".

I forgot I was a princess. I pulled away and kept on smiling.

"Feel free to wander around the village."

"Arigato." I walked out and headed for my parents' old home. The Hokage had circled some places for me, like the place where the Chuunin Exams would be; the Academy, a ramen shop, etc.

I got home and unlocked the door. It was actually clean. Weird. It was a nice, normal place. It had pictures of my parents around the place. Needless to say, I loved it.

I put away my stuff and walked out, locking the door after me and slipping the key into my weapon pouch. I walked around the village aimlessly, just looking around.
