"Sarada Uchiha" (うちはサラダ, Uchiha Sarada) is chapter 700+1 of the Naruto Gaiden mini-series.
As Shino Aburame explains to his class that within one week they'll be going through graduations for genin positions, the majority of the class voices their views on the opportunity. As Sarada Uchiha walks home, she begins to show jealousy over all her classmates getting training from their fathers for the coming graduation, with Chōchō Akimichi eating with her father Chōji Akimichi, Inojin Yamanaka getting drawing lessons from his father Sai, and even Boruto Uzumaki playing an expansive game of hide-and-seek with his ever busy father the Seventh Hokage Naruto Uzumaki, coupled with being given a lecture by Shikadai Nara and his father Shikamaru Nara.
Seeing all this, Sarada quietly admits she has never seen her own father, Sasuke Uchiha, in her whole life. Upon returning home and seeing a picture of her parents together, Sarada questions her mother Sakura Uchiha on if her father needed glasses like her. However, when Sakura can't give her a straight answer, Sarada openly questions the validity of her parents' marriage causing Sakura to violently lash out for the comment. Seeing that her daughter is acting out of sadness rather than anger she collects herself, Sakura apologises to her daughter but realises her outburst has destroyed their house, much to her horror as apparently this is not the first time Sakura destroyed it as she cries out about a loan she took out, fainting. Dropping off her mother to Shizune, Sarada returns to her house's ruins to collect some valuables. However, as she picks up the picture from before, Sarada makes a horrifying discovery: the picture is fake. Pulling out the larger picture of her father, she sees him with the rest of his team Taka and, to her horror, Karin, a girl with glasses similar to her, causing Sarada to further question the validity of her parents' marriage and, more importantly, her own parentage as well. All the while, Sasuke appears to be returning to Konoha.
