Naruto belongs to it's respective owners; and the picture was found through google images, I don't know who made it.

An Unexpected Beginning

Chapter 1 The End

As he woke up the young blond known as Uzumaki Naruto had his first thought of the day which was, 'Uhg my head, HURTS.' His second thought, as he now opened his bright blue eyes was, 'WHAT THE HELL!' That is how Uzumaki Naruto's, son of the Yondaime Hokage and Jinchuuriki of the Kyuubi no Kitsune, new life began.

FlashbackHe had seen what few had, and none ever wanted to. He was born into Hatred and Fear. Within a few hours of his birth he had lost more than most ever would, he'd lost both of his parents... and been cursed for the rest of his life. Which might not last too much longer. However that was the easy part.

As he grew he was feared and hated but he was too stubborn to ever give up, to ever give in. The day he learned the truth of him being the Jinchuuriki of Kyuubi, he became a ninja. His life after that was starting to get better he had people he could call friends now, even someone he could call a brother.

Naruto POV

Then He came, the Snake-teme, He took the one I could finally call brother. The Snake invaded MY home, and He is the reason every last one of my precious people are dead, and my home destroyed. I am Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze.In the final battle for Konoha, all of the rookie 9 and Gai's team lined up to fight... except for Sasuke he was gone. The rest of the rookie 9 and Gai's team were some of few left. By this point Konoha's forces had been cut by half at least, from the war against Sound and Iwa. The only reason they made it to the last battle was because they had become very strong over the years... and very lucky.

The final battle had been, so much worse than anything before, I watched as my friends died before my eyes protecting me. So that I wouldn't be taken and have the Kyuubi extracted by Madara Uchiha and the rest of the Akatsuki. I know that protecting me was for a bigger cause but... It was still ME, My precious people were dying for, the ones I'M supposed to be protecting.

They wanted to hide me away from the battle or send me away so I wouldn't be caught. I refused, I wanted to be there to help, I couldn't run away or hide that would be like giving up and abandoning my friends. But it didn't matter anyway they still all died, the only upside was that I finally got to take out that damn snake that took Sasuke's face. Plus a few Akatsuki, you see the Snake and the Akatsuki didn't join forces or anything. The Akatsuki just knew that Sound and Iwa's final battle with Konoha would be a great distraction to come take me.At least I won't have to live without my precious people for long, since my heart was destroyed, really actually destroyed, a Chidori right through. Not even the Kyuubi can replace a whole heart. Kind of ironic my precious people die and my heart is destroyed.Naruto we're dying...

I know, does it matter... everyone else is already gone.

... I may know a way to... fix this...

What do you mean 'fix'?

We could go back to before any of this ever happened, we could change it.

... What do we have to do? I'll need you to make my sign on your arm in your blood, then come back here quickly we don't have much time.

Naruto pushed himself out of his mindscape and marked himself with the sign of the Kyuubi no Kitsune in his own blood which wasn't hard to find. The sign was ironically the kanji for nine. It was hard on the outside his heart was gone after all he couldn't breathe and his blood wasn't pumping to where it needed to but he knew Sasuke's body was right beside him. Naruto had been getting better with his calligraphy though since he started sealing. So he made the symbol on the inside of his forearm as quickly as possible and pushed himself back to the mindscape where the Kyuubi was waiting.

Hurry Nauto I need you to come into the seal.

Now if Kyuubi had asked him that about 5 years ago he would have said 'No way in Hell', but it wasn't 5 years ago, he was 18 now. Through the battles the Kyuubi and him had changed they'd become closer. The Kyuubi could feel every emotion Naruto could. At first he was angry, bitter that a ningen (human) had defeated HIM the most powerful of all the Bijuu, and didn't care that the ningen's son suffered. Time had changed that, little by little, Naruto wasn't just the son of his father now, he was that boy who would always get back up after being beaten down no matter what hit him.

So without a word Naruto stepped in the cage of the fourth's seal with the most powerful Bijuu. Naruto looked barely bigger than an ant next to the fox, but he wasn't afraid. The Kyuubi was not him, but he was part of Naruto sealed to not just his body but his very soul till he no longer exists.

The Kyuubi wrapped his tails around Naruto and himself thinking of when he was taking them,'Heh the brat didn't say when he would like to go so I guess it's my choice. I think I'll give him a 'surprise'. So Kyuubi's chakra grew around them impossibly fast and powerful, there was so much of the thick red chakra it almost looked black, then it was like something broke and the chakra with Kyuubi and Naruto inside seemed to explode... then everything went black.
