Orochimaru never became a missing-nin. The Fourth Hokage still stood tall. There was no Uchiha Massacre. The Akatsuki never existed. Madara never became a problem. What could go wrong in such a perfect world? Sakura Haruno had always been alone, and at thirteen, she abandoned Konoha. She had to run from her past, but what exactly would wait for her in her future?

This really is a strange fanfic but I like it. The name sounds odd in my head though but Im giving it a chance. Im just so used with him being called Uzumaki Naruto.
I thought his last name was uzumaki I just started the series so I am probably no getting it

Why Namikaze!? Why not Uzumaki?! 
                              Which one people 
                              AU Namikaze? 
                              RU Uzumaki?
Uzumaki suits him better. Or maybe cause I'm just used to that one
Oh wow this is actually good even though sakura isn't really like this because she's annoying af but if she were like this in the actual anime i would like her,or if she wasn't in the anime at all they yay but then they would put someone else probably more annoying but who knows

It's kind of nice that you are actually focusing on Sakura and her feelings. Because, honestly, Sakura was never ever given any importance. I'm guilty for that too. There are so many Sakura haters as well. But I think this is gonna be the best Naruto Fanfiction I'd ever read.
