Chapter 1:Konoha's Lore
(I don't own them!)
When the 4th sealed the Kyubi into a new born baby, he wanted him to be recognized as a hero of the village but it didn't turn out what he wished for.
Those who fought against it held a great grudge against the Demon Fox. The grudge that they held passed on to the child who contained the demon. In order for the child to live peacefully, the 3rd ordered everyone in the village not to mention that the child contains the Demon Fox. Yes, the villagers accepted that order but many misinterpreted it. They thought that the order was used to make the child separated from the society. They hated him, despised him.
The child grew with no parents to welcome his existence and thus he lived alone. Since he was a child he already noticed the cold eyes that people place on him wherever he went. Once, he tried to make friends to other children but his efforts turned to vain as their parents took their children away from him. The child's heart was broken as if like thousand sharp daggers just pierced through it.
Although the people regarded him as some sort of a criminal, he acted strong and did things that somehow attracted the people's attention. The child became a prankster. He thought that by this way he would be recognized as part of the village. Still, the people of the village couldn't erase the pain that the Demon Fox did to them. Their hearts were cold.
The child was severely hurt. He didn't have friends, maybe inside the academy but they don't last long for as he the day of the school comes to an end, they disappear, leaving him all alone.
One day the child decided to finally leave the village. He thought that it would be for the best. He thought if he would be to leave the village, the fear in the eyes of those who suffered because of what he carried would lessen and at least forget him. Also, that he could somehow keep to himself the sorrow he carries.
The 3rd persuaded him not to do so, even his sensei pleaded him not to leave but the child's decision was final and no one could stop him because everyone didn't bothered to.
The child settled in the deep forests outside the village. There he lived peacefully together with the creatures that linger within it. He became adapted to his surroundings and survived on his own. He thought that the village people have finally let him go but it didn't seem so.
The people made him someone to be afraid of. They said to their children not to go outside without permission, even the locality accepted this rumor. The child heard this and again was deeply hurt but he didn't bother what they said for as long as they do not bother him.
They said that anyone who passes the forests of Konoha should travel with care for a demon lingers within it. A demon, who is ready to strike anyone. The child's also heard this but was helpless, so with the Hokage's blessing, he somehow altered the story. Yes, still, he was referred to as a monster but a monster, which protects Konoha from harm and watches over it day and night.
Today the child is known as the Konoha Forest Demon, that is what they say but to those who knew him, he is still Uzumaki Naruto, the young ninja of the leaf.
