Author's Note Edit
- First Note: Hey guys! I had this chapter half done so I decided to finished it.
There are several myths about adoption, one of them is that adoptees will leave the adoptive parents once they reunite with their biological parents; another is that an adoptee can never love his adoptive parents as if they were related by blood. I'm not adopted, so I can't truly understand their feelings. I wonder if any of you was so you can give me your opinion on this?
However, I don't believe those myths to be true. Maybe on some cases yes, but not all.
Warning: this chapter metions prostition and pedophilia.
- Second Note: That's it for now. I hope you enjoyed this chapter! I know this is still a bit early, but don't worry. Naruto is going to choose his words and information.
