"Alright, what's this all about Kiyoshi? and why are you carrying a bed? There's an invention called a sleeping bag." teased Tsunade.
Kiyoshi looked at the bed and back at Tsunade "I want to return this, but I wasn't sure where to. So I decided to ask you."
"Very well, but only after you give me the chocolate" said Tsunade eyeing the chocolate sticking out of Kiyoshi's pocket.
"Here you go, enjoy." Kiyoshi came over to the desk and gave it to Tsunade
"Why do you want to return the bed?"
"I sleep on the floor."
"Oh, you're one of those people. Fine, go to the storage and put it there, here's a note with my permission to get past the guards." Said Tsunade scribbling something on a piece of paper. "Do you know where to go?" Kiyoshi shook his head "Then Shikamaru and Shino will accompany you."
"Thanks Tsunade-sama. I got another question though; do you still stay in contact with Akane?" Tsunade nodded "Next time you send a letter or message, say hi for me, will you?"
"Will do, now get out of my office, Kakashi wishes to speak to me." replied Tsunade, chasing the three teens out with her stare. "What can I do you for Kakashi?"
"Is he safe to keep around, Tsunade?" asked Kakashi very directly.
"He's fine, he was raised by a very close friend of mine. Her name's Akane, and from what she wrote to me, I'm impressed by him. He reminds me of Naruto on a smaller scale. He has a good heart and his intentions are good. Furthermore, I won't tell you anything about him seeing as it's not my place to. If you want to know his history, convince him to tell you. I'm not going to tell you because I simply just don't know, even Akane doesn't know what happened to him before she took him in."
"Why doesn't he tell anyone?"
"Simple... he doesn't know himself. I tried to restore his memory when he just came, but that nearly killed him."
"At least I can tell everyone to be at ease with him around." said Kakashi turning around to leave "I'll ask him more about himself and report it back to you."
"fine. Oh and Kakashi..." Kakashi turned around, "I want to put the kid on his first mission, I'll send you, Kiyoshi, Naruto, and..." She thought a bit, and something made her grin. "Hinata will come too." Kakashi smiled at the idea. "If he really is as resourceful as you reported him Kakashi, he'll sort those two out."
"When will this mission take place?"
"In two days, you'll be going to the wave country on a simple recovery mission, I'll brief you about it later."
"Good, I'll introduce Kiyoshi to Gai and Lee tomorrow, he needs their help."
"What do you mean?"
"It's a secret, I'll tell you later."
"You didn't have to mention it to me then, now i'm curious." said Tsunade disappointed.
With that, Kakashi disappeared the way all ninjas do.
Kiyoshi, Shino, and Shikamaru were on the way to the storage, Shino and Shikamaru were still wondering what Kiyoshi's history was, They told him theirs, but he kept quiet about himself.
"Say Kiyoshi, where were you born?" asked Shikamaru
The question changed Kiyoshi's happy attitude and smile into sadness. "I don't know..." he said quietly.
"What do you mean?" asked Shikamaru
"My last name is Inamotou." explained Kiyoshi, "when Akane took me in, that's the name she gave to me. because I don't know my origins."
Shikamaru felt like a jerk for ruining Kiyoshi's day, but felt Kiyoshi's slight resemblence to Naruto again.
"Don't worry about it." said Kiyoshi with the resurrected smile.
A memory came to his mind. He was standing in Tsunade's office. her desk was covered in an unorganized pile of papers as usual, and they were drinking tea, discussing him.
"Kazuo... what do you mean you have no history?" asked Tsunade.
"I don't remember my parents or where I come from." answered the blond teen in a trench coat.
Tsunade thought for a moment. "I know you're still a stranger here, and it's against every regulation to revive your memory, but how about it? want to get your memory back?"
Kazuo smiled, but inside ever slightly worried. "definately."
Two hours later, he was lying on a floor with markings on him and on the floor around him. Several medic-nin went through hand seals and he fell asleep. the next thing he could remember was Tsunade leaning over him screaming for him to not leave. He opened his eyes to see terror in hers.
"That was a close call, glad to have you back." said Tsunade in relief and fell back.
"Why? What happened?" asked the blond boy still waking up and feeling sore all over.
"You went into shock and nearly died, for safety reasons, I suggest you don't try revivng your memory again. But still I wonder, do you remember anything?"
His eyes opened wide and a shock came through his body. Then a smile crept across his face. "Kiyoshi" he said quietly.
"My name is Kiyoshi." he repeated.
"no" Kiyoshi replied. He was a bit disappointed that nothing else came back, but was glad that something survived from his parents.
The three teens reached the storage, and after the guards questioned him for 10 minutes, Kiyoshi eventually got in, set the bed on the floor, and left.
