Naruto walked down a Konoha Street. He bumped into someone.
"Oh, sorry, I didn't~" The person stopped mid-sentence and Naruto prepared himself.
But the adult didn't say anything, he just muttered something about a fox brat and turned back to the cart vendor. Naruto looked away sadly and kept walking. That's when he saw it. It was a cat mask with two red stripes on each side and a red triangle on the top and bottom of the cat mask. The man behind the shop looked at Naruto.
"It's you! You want this mask? Take it!" The man threw it at Naruto.
It hit Naruto square in the face and bounced off onto the ground. Naruto rubbed his face, grabbed the mask and took off running. He glanced back at the mask seller. The mask seller was engaged with another customer.
'Of course. I'm just trash, not like everybody else.' Naruto thought to himself.
But then he violently shook his head, 'No! That's what they all want me to think! I'll show them! I'm going to become Hokage one day, then they'll all respect me!'
Naruto sat on his bed with a cup of warm milk in his left hand. He drank it and wiped his upper lip with the right hand. He slid into bed and when he was all cozy and tucked in, he decided to pray. Naruto didn't know the traditional beginning for a prayer since no one had ever bothered in trying to teach him. So he started off like he was talking to a regular person.
'Uh, hey there God. I've never talked to you before. But, you're supposed to be helpful. And I could use some helping out, ya know? I'm not asking for much, just,' Naruto's eyes welled up with tears, 'J-Just send someone to love me.'
Naruto ended up falling asleep without saying 'Amen'.
The next day Naruto was walking through another Konoha street when suddenly rush hour(sidewalk version) happened. It was like a conjunction of adults. But as someone got a look at his face, space was created around Naruto.
"It's that fox ki~"
"Shh! You can't say that! It's a taboo!"
"Why don't you just get out of here kid?"
"You're not wanted around here."
But Naruto stood his ground, determined not to falter.
"Didn't you hear us kid?" An adult prepared to hit him, "Get out of here!"
He was about to slap him across the face when a hand grabbed his hand.
"Whoa there! Hitting children," The girl clicked her tongue, "How manly of you."
The guy ripped his hand from her grip and studied her. She was about 16 with had blonde hair and blue eyes, with whiskers on her face. She had on an orange and black jump suit. She picked Naruto up and held him at the side.
"You adults should be ashamed of yourselves." She covered his ears so he couldn't hear.
But what she had said was:
"Just because he has the 9-tails sealed in him, you treat him like an outsider. Wasn't the purpose of sealing the Kyuubi in him to prevent rampages? If you keep treating him this way, he'll eventually succumb to the Kyuubi's hatred, then you all really will be screwed." She predicted.
The adults murmured and one of the adults spoke out.
"You speak bold words, but where have you been all this time?"
"Yeah, hypocrite, where were you for these 6 years?"
But the girl was ready for them, "I've been visiting the other villages and trying to make alliances with some of their fighters. Don't forget that if there is a Fourth Shinobi War involving Konoha, the citizens will be the first to suffer. Fate might have it so that you all die in any casualties."
The adults kept quiet at that one. The girl stopped covering his ears.
"Um, Nee-chan?" Naruto asked.
"Yes?" She answered.
"What's your name?" He wondered.
"Uzumaki Naruko." She smiled.
"Boy, you're heavy aren't you?" I set Naruto down on the ground.
He was still staring at me in awe, probably thinking this was the first time anyone had stood up for him. I was honored, but having a six-year old watch you with such intensity was a bit awkward.
"H-Hey," I put up a hand, "You shouldn't stare at people. It's considered rude."
Naruto looked away, "Sorry. I've never met anyone that actually liked me."
I turned around and gave the adults another look. The crowds disperse as quickly as they had formed. I gave Naruto my hand, "You won't have to worry about that anymore. I'm here. And you'll definitely make new friends."
He took my hand but his face showed that he doubted my words, "Yeah okay."
'We've got a lot to work on.' I thought to myself.
"Alright Naruto. Can you lead me to where you live?" I asked.
He nodded, "I live by myself so it's messy."
I shrugged my shoulders, "I'm willing to bet 5,000 Yen that I'm messier than you."
Naruto cracked a smile, "You'd lose a lot of money?"
"Oh yeah?" I quickened my pace, "We'll see. Show me the house."
