One year after the attack on the village....
"Nintai" Hinata started, in her motherly tone, "are you sure you're ready for the Academy?"
Nintai just nodded, and walked out of the house.
"Why Nintai," a voice said behind Nintai appeared, "are you coming to the Academy for training?"
"Yes, Shikamaru Sensei." Nintai replied, as she tried to sneak a peek at the person behind her Sensei.
Shikamaru noticed her looking at his son, "Nintai, this is my son, Temshi. Say hello, Temshi."
Temshi poked his head out, from behind his father, “Hello,” Temshi greeted, in a soft, sweet tone, “I’m Temshi, and my parents are the two best ninja in the world.”
Nintai giggled, while Shikamaru spoke to his son, “Temshi, your mother and I are ninjas, but we don’t come close to the 8th Hokage.”
“You don’t?” Naruto said, as he jumped from a roof top. “I remember you being pretty smart, and you saved me, plenty of times.”
Shikamaru just nodded, and told Temshi to go to the Academy.
“How’s Temari doing?” Naruto asked Shikamaru, “I hear you have another baby on the way.”
“Yeah,” Shikamaru blushed, “we’re still trying to get a little girl. It seems that Temshi is the only child that looks like Temari though, with his blonde hair and what not, but I hope this baby does also.”
“That’s great!” Naruto cheered, as he patted Shikamaru on the back.
“So how are your kids doing?” Shikamaru asked.
Naruto grimaced, and Nintai began to cry.
“I’m so sorry,” Shikamaru tried to stop Nintai from crying, “I forgot.”
“No,” Naruto said, “Miko’s death made us stronger. He’s the reason that Nintai’s becoming a ninja. I believe she’s in your class, Shikamaru.”
Shikamaru just nodded.
“Get to class!” Naruto ordered Nintai.
Nintai ran off, trying to keep her composure.
A few hours later…
“Nintai!” Temshi shouted, “Sit next to me!”
Nintai saw Temshi and sat right next to him.
“You look sad.” Temshi said to Nintai.
“Yeah, I am.” Nintai replied.
“Well, I’ll cheer you up, Nintai.” Temshi comforted Nintai.
“Okay.” Nintai said, with a giggle and a sob.
“Shadow Possession Jutsu!” Temshi said.
Suddenly, the boy in front of them jumped out of his seat.
“My daddy taught me how to control people, without moving, I just need to speak, watch.” Temshi told Nintai.
“Dance like a monkey.” Temshi said.
Then, the boy in front of them started to dance, “Why am I doing this?” The boy shouted.
“Temshi!” Shikamaru shouted, when he entered the class room, “you’re grounded.”
“Aww…” Temshi said, throwing his hands in the air, and having the boy in front do the same thing, “I just just trying to cheer Nintai up.” Both Temshi, and the other boy said.
Shikamaru walked up to the boy being controlled, and put his hand on his head, “Release!”
“Sorry.” Nintai apologized to Shikamaru.
“He should know better.” Shikamaru said, looking down on Temshi.
When Shikamaru walked over to his desk, Temshi turned towards Nintai, “So are we friends now?”
“Forever.” Nintai informed Temshi, while she put her hand out, for him to shake.
“Forever!” They said together.
“Do I need to move you two?” Shikamaru yelled across the class room.
“No,” Nintai piped up.
