“Right so that was your boyfriend…?” Georgia asked Lozzie.
Lozzie smiled awkwardly and nodded.
“Not the way I was expecting you to meet him…”
“He’s… nice.” Georgia told her. “Be warned though, if he ever upsets or hurts you he’ll have his ass handed to him. Understood?”
“Yes Ma’am!” Lozzie replied with a small salute.
Georgia laughed at her and quickly hugged her.
“So I’d better go home then, all that lovely paperwork to-”
Both of the women turned towards the voice.
Her voice trailed off as the blonde student stood in front of her with a goofy smile on his face.
“What on earth are you doing here? You live in the village don’t you?”
“Yeah but I went to the ramen shop down here and got lost…” He chuckled lightly. “Believe it…”
“Right…so how are you getting back to the village?” She asked him
Again Naruto laughed awkwardly and rubbed the back of his neck.
“I missed the last bus…” He replied.
“Oh dear…do you need a lift?” She asked.
“Yeah. Sure get in!”
She climbed into the car, Naruto climbing in the other side. She turned to Lozzie and rolled her eyes before pulling off.
“So you live in the village then?” She asked him.
“How can you be happy about that?” She asked him with a small smile creeping onto her face.
“Well I wasn’t at first, I was going to sleep on a bench or something till the morning bus came… but then I spotted you sensei and I thought that I could…”
“Appeal to my nice side?” Georgia suggested.
Naruto nodded. Georgia turned around a corner speeding up towards a wall.
“Yes Naruto?” She replied.
“That’s a wall…” He told her, pointing at it slowly.
Naruto stared at her like she was insane before paling as she locked the doors.
“This is the quickest way to the village.” She told him upon noticing his state.
“Yeah!” Naruto shouted. “To the village Graveyard!”
“Do me a favour Naruto?”
“What is it…?” He asked cautiously.
“Watch the wall and be quiet.”
He nodded. Georgia glanced at the gearstick and flicked the top of it up, revealing buttons. She then pressed the middle button, Naruto closing his eyes.
“We’re going to crash!” He screamed.
Georgia rolled her eyes at him speeding up. The car drove through the wall, which had now moved up a bit and slowed down. There was a few minutes of silence as she stopped the car and allowed her student to open his eyes and take in the sight before them.
“What happened? We’re still alive? We’re in a tunnel…?”
“Yes thank you for stating the obvious Naruto.” She told him getting out of the car.
She stood still and stretched. The tunnel they were now in was lit slightly by lights on the sides. Naruto followed her and climbed out.
“What is this?” He asked her.
“This Naruto is a tunnel.” She replied. “In fact this tunnel has been here for years, I’m surprised that no one remembers it. It’s pretty much ancient.”
“But you-you just drove through a wall…”
“Yeah and I would appreciate it if you would keep all of this our little secret. I don’t want to lose my job.”
“Of course, your secrets safe with me! Believe it!” He reassured her with a smile.
“I appreciate that now shall we continue?”
Naruto nodded, the two of them climbing back into the car. She put it back into gear and drove off taking him back to his house.
