Heroes Emerge

Action / Adventure

The Beginning

It was midday when a group of kids awoke in a grassy gnole in the middle of forest. The grass was long and green, and as they each stood, they found a sword next to them.

Kaze stood first. He had brown eyes with a dull grey pupil along with curly brown hair. He wore a dull green shirt with dirty gray stripes along with black ANBU-style pants.

The next to stand was Kasai. He had blonde hair and blue eyes with a fiery red pupil. His shirt was black with the Kanji for fire written in red on the front and back of his shirt.

Third was Raiu. He had dark brown hair and red eyes with stripes of gold and light, shocking blue pupils. He wore a dark red robe that went halfway down his calves. His shirt was yellow with the Kanji for lightning written on the chest.

The fourth to stand was Mizu. He had short blonde hair and blue eyes with dark blue, almost black pupils. He wore a red T-shirt along with white shorts with the Kanji for water inscribed in light blue on his left pant leg.

The last to stand was Suton, who was above average height with a large stature. He had dark brown hair and jet black eyes with a dark brown pupil. He wore a tan jacket with the Kanji for earth written down both arms in a dark brown.

Kaze looked around and asked, “Where are we?”

“I don’t know,” replied Suton looking down to see a sword. “What’s this?” He leaned over and grabbed the sword. “Strange, this feels oddly natural.”

“I feel strange, like something is flowing through me,” Raiu said.

After they each retrieved their swords, they began to walk a path through the forest they were unfamiliar with. It was strange to them, but everything seemed so lifelike, almost as if they could talk to the trees.

“I don’t think we should be here,” Kasai said as the forest grew darker.

Kaze chuckled. “We’re just going towards the center of the forest, don’t be so scared.”

“I-I wasn’t scared, I’m just concerned,” Kasai said. A second later the bushes shook next to him and he jumped to the other side of their path. “What was that!?” Out of the bushes walked a rabbit and everyone laughed until their sides hurt.

They continued to walk through the forest until they saw a group of people. As they got closer they realized it was a group of kids led by a single adult.

The five of them approached the group and heard the man who must have been the teacher talk about survival techniques that were vital for them to survive in the wilderness.

As they grew closer to the group they heard a boy shout at the man. “Iruka-sensei, when will we ever need to know how to scavenge for food?”

Iruka looked down and groaned. “Naruto, have you ever stopped to think that a mission could go longer than expected?”

“Not rea –” Naruto was cut off when they heard a rustle in the bushes nearby.

“All right kids, stay behind me,” Iruka said as he grabbed a kunai.

Out of the bushes stepped the group of kids. Iruka lowered his kunai and kneeled down. “What are you kids doing out here?”

Kaze stepped forward. “We don’t know where we are, or how we got here.”

Iruka stood up. “Well let’s take you back to the Hidden Leaf Village.”

“Iruka-sensei,” spoke a black haired boy who stood with his arms crossed. He wore a blue shirt with a ping pong paddle on the back.

“Yes Sasuke,” replied Iruka.

Sasuke stepped forward. “How do we know they aren’t enemies of the Leaf?”

Iruka stood thinking deeply about the question. “Good question Sasuke. Well, there isn’t really a sure way of telling whether a person is using a form of transformation jutsu. That’s why newcomers in the village are closely watched,” Iruka turned back to the kids. “Today’s lesson is over. After we get back to the leaf you are all free to go.”

The group let out a cheer and began to run towards the Leaf Village. “Wait! Slow down,” Iruka yelled at the kids. He turned to the group of five. “Follow me, there’s someone I want you to meet.”

The group followed Iruka, who sprinted after his class who had gotten ahead of him. They ran until they got to a huge gate that had no doors. The walls around it were a tan orange color. On the inside of the wall was a small shack occupied by two guards.

One of the guards looked at Iruka. “What did you find this time?”

“A group of kids that I want the Hokage to meet,” Iruka said, continuing past towards a large tower near the center of the village. As they walked through, they saw people with stands selling their goods, and houses placed almost on top of each other. Each of the kids saw something they thought was strange.

They reached the Hokage’s tower and climbed the stairs to the top floor. Iruka knocked on the door of the Hokage’s office. On the other side of the door a man told them to enter. They walked through the door, and when they were at his desk, they noticed he wore a white robe and white hat with red streaks on each of them.

The man turned and lifted his hat to reveal an old wrinkled face. “Why have you come here Iruka?” asked the man.

“There was a group of kids in the forest, and I wanted to get your opinion on what to do with them,” Iruka said, bowing his head.

The Hokage looked at the children and spoke, “I am Sarutobi, the third Hokage of the Leaf Village.”

Each of the kids waved and introduced themselves.

Sarutobi turned back to Iruka. “Find them some housing and have them in your class at the academy tomorrow.

Iruka bowed and took the kids out of the Hokage’s tower where they walked through the village until they reached some housing units. Iruka took them up a flight of stairs and opened a door at the end of the walkway. “This will be your housing for now. I’ll be back tomorrow morning to take you to the Academy.”

After Iruka left, the door next to the groups’ opened and out walked a boy in all orange with a pair of goggles on his forehead.

He turned his head and asked, “Who are you guys?”

Suton replied, “I’m Suton, this is Raiu, Mizu, Kaze, and Kasai. Who are you?”

“I’m Naruto, it’s nice to meet you, but I need to get some ramen before I go to bed,” Naruto said as he began to walk away.

The group set blankets on the floor and went to sleep.
