Prologue

3rd Person Limited

Uzumaki Naruto has had better days than this one. Sure it started out fine, he was going on a mission outside of Konoha, even if he did have to deal with a drunk old man intent on insulting him. He was happy, even happy enough to listen to Kakashi-sensei's lecture on the different villages in till they passed a puddle. He thought it was a bit strange but he just walked on by thinking that there were no ninjas to encounter.

Then two men with gauntlets on their hands appeared out of the puddle and with large chains tore Kakashi-sensei in to bits. He froze feeling something he hadn't in this amount in at least three years, KI or killer intent. He was stabbed in the hand and he could almost feel the burn from the poison and Sasuke swooped in to save the day.

Afterwards, he was singled out by his sensei even though he didn't see Sakura do anything other than stand there shaking. He internally sighed and let out a small chakra pulse, and thought about his life in general. A lot of people thought he was an idiot but he was actually very smart, he had taught himself how to read and write, but put on this façade to get attention. He didn't really like orange all that much, well not enough to wear this much, but it's not like the pariah could get anything else.

He then felt a chakra source and threw a kunai at it only to find a terrified white rabbit which got him a bonk to the head from his female teammate. Then his teacher had told all of them to get down only to see the largest sword ever that would have sliced through them had he still been standing. There was then a man with cow-like camo pants and a sliced Kiri headband standing on the giant sword.

His teacher then fought the man and is now trapped in a water jutsu and we are now at present time. An explosion is heard and he can see a small plume of smoke and something heading towards their group. Then a large splash can be seen and heard and it blocks his view of his sensei momentarily. Once it calms down he sees bubbles and a boy with a beanie gets his head out of the water and breathes in deeply.

He then swims towards shore wincing slightly from some type of injury most likely caused from hitting the water. He hoists himself on to the ground and seems to do an inventory check to see if everything is there and smiles when his beanie is still on. Then he scans and sees Tazuna only to run towards him limping slightly.

"Tazuna-jiji, how are you? I can't believe you're already back, who are the kids with you?"

"Meno, go home to Tsunami, it isn't safe here."

"Of course it's safe you got ninja here we'll be fine," and we all hear a dark chuckle and turn to Zabuza, but he just cocks his head and asks.

"Um Mr, is that sword of yours compensating for something?"

Most of the people there are too terrified to laugh all except one blonde wearing bright orange who tries to stifle giggles. Then the two boys both start giggling in till they can't stifle it anymore and start roaring in laughter.

"Oh, my kami, that's," the blonde giggles, "that's just frickin' hilarious," and they laugh even more at the red faced water clone in till the real deal shunshis over to them not even caring about his prisoner in his rage.

"Still think it's funny," and he brings down the sword on the shoulder of the still laughing youth, but it doesn't do anything.

"Is your sword plastic?"

"Yo- what the hell are you?"

"Um, an amnesiac that's been adopted," he tells the older man with a cat face.

"No, how the hell did your skin stop my sword, it's chakra conducting metal, it should cut right through you like butter!"

"Zabuza, leave the kid alone, did you forget about me?"

Then the two veterans left the kid alone and fought creating giant water dragons at the same exact time. Then the man asked if the Konoha ninja could see the future and he said yes and that his future was death in till a young boy/ girl with a hunter ninja mask appeared and killed him and took away the body. Then the sensei of Naruto's team collapsed exhausted and the blonde and the client's grandson helped the poor man towards Tazuna's house.


Naruto's Pov

"So your name's Meno, right?"

"Hai, shinobi-san what's your name?"

"Naruto, Uzumaki Naruto, at your service."

"I have to thank you and your team for protecting my grandfather, Naruto-san, so arigato."

"Anata no kangei, Meno-san, but it was mostly Kakashi-sensei that protected him, we're the lowest level of shinobi right now."

"Yeah, but that doesn't mean you can't do anything right? And besides I bet you'll get really strong Naruto-san."

"Arigato, Meno-san, so what did you mean you were adopted?"

"Oh, well four years ago when I was eight, Tazuna-san found me washed up on shore, I didn't remember anything except my name and age, and his daughter Tsunami took me in and cared for me like I was her child, I have a little brother named Inari."

"Wow, Tazuna-san's daughter sounds like a really good person."

"She is," and we chat for a little bit longer.

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre.
