Hello, I recently received a message from a Hillerypost, about a fan fiction I wrote on fanfiction.net, telling me about this site and its contests, so I figured since I was already rewriting it, I could work on it here, since she suggested it.
When we open the story we see Hiruzen Sarutobi, speaking to a young baby boy who has spiky blonde hair, three whisker marks on each cheek, and a powerful seal on his stomach that only a seal master would understand. Hiruzen has decided to tell the boy a story because, for the council decided that the boy would be put into the orphanage the next day, so he decided to spend one last night with the hero of his village.
"In the hidden whirlpool village, there was a powerful and honorable clan named Uzumaki. Within this clan, they were separated into three branches. The Main branch, the Dark branch, and the Light branch. The way this clan became so powerful is because of six ninjas who decided that they were not ready to die, they wished to stay on earth to make sure that the ones they loved did not come to harm, and also so their knowledge did not die with them. So they went and studied seals in order to make a way for them to protect their children and after years of becoming more powerful and intelligent, they found a way to seal their souls into swords. The first was able to amplify emotions, while the second could cut through anything, even chakra. The third could generate so much heat, it could create any fire jutsu with just one swing, the fourth had the power of a different warmth, it could heal any wound, just by being pressed against it.”
Hiruzen watched as the child giggled over his expressions as he told the tale.
“The fifth blade was able to generate winds so powerful, they said that swinging it caused a hurricane to form, and then, the final blade that could actually cut one's soul, without doing any physical damage. These blades were well guarded, and only those willing to seal themselves within the blade when they died could not touch them, and even then, you had to have been of Uzumaki blood, or you would not have been able to remove the blade from the sheath, for the blades would only obey those with true Uzumaki blood within their veins, and even when you have that blood, would you want to spend the rest of your afterlife sealed within a sword, unable to be united with the people you miss? However, years ago, a great evil befell the village, and the clan, a ninja seeking the weapons was mad enough to destroy the village and everything in it.”
Hiruzen shed a tear over the loss of Konoha’s ally and friends.
“However, there was one woman who managed to escape, and she was alone, until one day when a jōnin, and his genin team came across her while in the woods, and offered her a home, a place to rebuild her clan, which she reluctantly agreed to. Her name was Kushina Uzumaki, and she gave her name to you in hopes of bringing back the power and the honor of the clan. The red death of Konoha, saw the potential to bring honor to her family name in you, Naruto Uzumaki."
As the story ended we find ourselves in a room with what seemed to be a three-year-old boy with blonde spiky hair sitting in a chair across from the old third Hokage as he finished telling him of his favorite story, for it was how he as an orphan was given a family name. Unknown to Naruto, Sarutobi was telling him this story not for the reason of telling Naruto of how he got his name from a woman who wanted him to bring honor to her family, but because he wanted to tell Naruto of how his mother came to the village, and indirectly give him a mother.
Every month, after the orphanage kicked him out, which was five months ago, the Hokage came over and told Naruto about the wonderful things Kushina Uzumaki did, as well as some of her less than grand tales. The later to show she was still a human with a heart, and sometimes, he told him about how Kushina would end up dating the fourth Hokage a few times and then how he would make a fool of himself and make her laugh.
But whenever Naruto asked about his real parents, he got the same answer, they were both brave, strong and loved him, and that his mother was talking about how she was going to teach him this and that, and even how his father fainted when he was told.
However, when asked about their names, Hiruzen would just tell him that if he was to talk about that out in the open, someone might hear and inform the wrong people, and then Naruto would be in serious danger, of threats he cannot stop. So Naruto went about looking to Kushina and the Uzumaki clan as a role model, he even got a picture of Kushina as a birthday present one year from the old man, which he kept hidden, in a loose floorboard under his bed, so no one could find it, and whenever he needed a mother's warmth, he just got the picture and gave it a hug, then hid it again so no one could take it from him.
The night of his third birthday, as Naruto slept, he was kidnapped, and as he was taken away from the village, he met someone that would change his life…
As Naruto was being roughly dragged over rocks and sticks, in which all he saw when they stopped were a group of guys, there were a few with weird eyes, some had red eyes with two or three black comas in them, and some were white with veins popping out of them while there were others as well that he did not see any outstanding features on.
Some of the villagers decided to attack the demon boy, and so they decided to go and ask some of the clan members of the powerful clans for help, unfortunately, the Nara said it was too troublesome to hate the boy, the Yamanaka and the Akamichi said they had full faith in the fourth's sealing ability, while the Aburame said it was illogical to judge him now, although they did get some Hyuuga and some Uchihas to help them out, they still were going to beat the shit out of him.
So as they got to a clearing, they started
They kicked him while he was crying on the ground and they even threw weapons at him, some even began using jutsu, and sealing his tenketsu, but unknown to them, someone was going to meet the demon boy because of them, and he wasn't going to sugar coat anything
!#$%^&*()_+ Naruto's mindscape +_()*&^%$#!
"Where am I?"
"You are within your subconscious."
"Who are you then?"
Naruto opened his eyes to see a giant fox with nine tails "Wow" Kyuubi actually felt pride in being able to leave the boy speechless "Your one big kitty" face fault…
"I am a fox, not a cat!"
"Oh, so did you want something?"
"I want to explain what I am doing here, first off I am the mighty demon guardian. Secondly, I was supposed to be sealed into the heir of the main Uzumaki branch by Kushina Uzumaki, considering it would have been her son, but instead, I was sealed into you, the one who was given her name, and without the blades of wind and soul, I cannot test if you are the rightful Uzumaki, so I am stuck believing that old man, who told you the story, although I am surprised he knew that much, the clan story isn't well known anymore"
"Jiji said he feels knowledge is power."
"Correct, and since I am sealed in you, I shall believe the old fool, and aid you in the learning and teach you of seals, so you may one day create a blade and seal your soul into it so you can recreate the Uzumaki clan."
Naruto looked shocked but asked one simple question "Who are you again?"
"I am the mighty Kyuubi, guardian demon of the Uzumaki main branch."
"What about the other bijuu? Are they guardians as well?"
"Yes, although they were either stolen from their respective clan or improperly sealed, or their clan has been destroyed"
"So, what your saying is, that all the bijuu are not actually demons?"
"Yes, when most humans see power, they try to claim it for themselves, and in the end, they destroy everything."
Naruto looked at the fox and asked "What about the people beating me?"
"They have been at it for an hour now, and I have forced you into unconsciousness to keep you from feeling it"
All the Kyuubi got was an ok and that was it, as he curled up in a corner and waited
!#$%^&*()_+ outside +_()*&^%$#!
The mob was finishing up, hopefully ending the life of the demon, but as they were about finish up something really bad happened…
"What the fuck do you think you are doing?" As the mob turned around they knew they were screwed, Hiashi, and Fugaku were looking at them with Hinata hiding behind her father's leg with tear filled eyes looking at the beaten form of Naruto. Hiashi had mixed feelings right now; he really didn't want to deal with the punishment from the Hokage for his clansmen doing this.
Hiashi "I hope you know the penalty for this."
Fugaku had nothing to stop him from speaking his mind, considering he had no little girl to worry over, "You do realize if the Hokage caught you, we would be on the receiving end of a shitload more trouble than we already are right? This boy is under his protection retarded bastards."
Hiashi looked at Fugaku "You do realize he will expect them to be punished right?"
"They will be." was all he got as Fugaku activated his sharingan, Hiashi activated the caged bird seal, the branch members all screamed in pain as Fugaku went and knocked his clansmen out.
Hiashi "I assume they are going to be arrested?"
Fugaku "Of course"
Hinata "Is he going to be okay?" she was still hiding behind her father still looking at the bloody boy as Fugaku signaled for some people to come and arrest the people that were unconscious as he checked the boy.
Fugaku "He is alive, maybe you should take him home and make sure he gets treated for his injuries."
Fugaku loved to piss off Hiashi, and he knew if he refused to take the boy his daughter would see him as heartless and evil, although the village would if he did, then again, Hinata sees a little boy her age who is beaten and bloodied for no reason, so with that Hiashi went and picked up the boy and walked with Hinata back to the estate while Fugaku and some of his clansmen arrested the mob.
As Hiashi was walking home with Hinata, he was glared at for carrying the boy, which got worse when the boy woke up "Am a dead yet?"
He sounded broken, like he was wanting it to be true, Hiashi almost felt like feeling bad, although he knew things such as the level the fourth was at with sealing, considering they were teammates and he trusted him with his life, which happened several times, he had to use an excuse to get the council to not get pissed, he so wished his daughter didn't see the boy, then this would be easier, considering he wouldn't have to explain to a boy who most likely doesn't trust a whole lot of people, he was going to let him sleep in his house for the night.
"Well when you were being hurt, me and Fugaku went and stopped the people responsible and saved your life, and seeing as our clansmen were in that mob, Fugaku has arrested them while I shall be kind enough to allow you to rest at my home till you feel better."
And with that Naruto just fell asleep in his arms to try and regain his strength and to escape being questioned, and possibly hit.
Been forever since I used that separation style.
So, as I said, this is being posted here because of Hillerypost, and her recommendation over my first properly completed and decently sized story, which I thank her for, as well My own friend Aphe the Lion, who also encouraged me to redo this story, and has also been speaking with me over my Naruto of Love fiction and helping me with it as well.
So shout outs to them, and I hope I fixed this a bit.
