Sasuke's Christmas Carol
I've seen stories where Sasuke gets a Christmas Carol and frankly I am unimpressed. But you know the saying if you want something done, do it yourself. Start the fic.
An eighteen year old Naruto knocked on Sasuke's door. It was Christmas Eve and he decided to spend it with his finally returned best friend Sasuke. The door opened but was immediately slammed shut once the resident saw Naruto. "Oh come on, Sasuke!!! You can't still be mad!!"
Sasuke sounded farer away this time so Naruto opened the door, inviting himself in.
"What's wrong, Sasuke? I thought you'd be happy to be home again." Said Naruto.
"Eeee!! Wrong!! I never said I wanted to come back, the only thing I've ever said I wanted was to kill Itachi!" said Sasuke.
"And you did, so what's the problem?" asked Naruto.
"My problem is you dragged my ass back to this two bit village."
Naruto scoffed. "Oh cheer up, it's Christmas!"
"I hate Christmas."
"Oh come on, how can anyone hate Christmas?"
"I found a way!"
Naruto shook his head. "Anyways, I came by because I saw how undecorated your house was so I brought you this."
Naruto handed Sasuke a Christmas wreath which only earned him a death glare. The truth of the matter was that Sasuke hated Naruto now. He had been all set to start a new life when Naruto showed up, defeated him, and dragged him back to the Village Hidden in the Leaves. It was only when he was away from the village that he become strong enough to kill Orochimaru and eventually Itachi. Now that he was back there were Anbu shinobis watching every exit, keeping an eye out for him. It was literally impossible for Sasuke to leave the village now.
"Well you'd better perk up Sasuke, I'm becoming Hokage pretty soon. Finally, I'll get the respect I deserve!" said Naruto.
Naruto was finally working on Sasuke's last nerve.
"You idiot; don't you realize that even if you become Hokage it isn't going to change their feelings towards you?! All you're going to accomplish is becoming the most hated Hokage that ever lived!!!"
Naruto looked shocked at Sasuke's declaration but soon hung his head in sadness.
"Wow…I…I guess I never thought of that…" said Naruto.
Sasuke didn't look at Naruto, maybe that was a bit below the belt.
Naruto walked towards the door that he came in from and opened it. Before entering through it he turned to look at Sasuke and said "Merry Christmas." With that said he closed the door behind him.
Sasuke scoffed. "Christmas. Hn." He threw the wreath Naruto gave him into a wastebasket.
Sasuke sat down in a booth but soon regretted it as he heard some old headaches were sitting behind him.
"So Hinata, what's the deal with you and Naruto anyways?" Sasuke knew that was Ino. It pretty hard to forget a voice like that when it was constantly screaming your name.
Sasuke didn't have to turn around to know that Hinata was blushing. He quickly told the waitress what he wanted to eat and listened back to the conversation, it was better than anything else had to do at home.
"W-Well I trained with N-Naruto-kun for several months at one point." Said Hinata.
"Oh yeah, I remember that. That was when Naruto finally surpassed all the previous Hokages." 'That sounded like Tenten.' Thought Sasuke.
The waitress brought him his meal and he started to dig in.
"And correct me if I'm wrong but didn't he take you out on like a hundred dates afterwards?"'What's Temari doing there?' thought Sasuke.
"N-No, just seven." Said Hinata.
"And she says that like it's a small number." Mused Ino.
"You know Sakura here could take a lesson from you Hinata. She hasn't had a date since emo boy strolled back into town." Said Tenten.
"Sakura's there too?"
"Please don't call him that. He's just going through some troubling times at the moment. He's still recuperating you know." Said Sakura.
"Oh yeah, from the ass whooping Naruto gave him." Said Ino.
An anger vein appeared on Sasuke's head.
"Make fun all you want Ino but you'll see. It's only a matter of time before Sasuke realizes how much I love him and comes running back to me." Said Sakura.
Sasuke rolled his eyes.
"I say you just kick his sorry ass to the curb and date Lee. You know he'd want to." Said Tenten.
"No, Lee's a great guy and everything but…my heart will always belong to Sasuke." Said Sakura.
Sasuke put down his fork and stormed out of the restaurant. "Idiot!!" muttered Sasuke.
"It's me Sakura."
"What the hell do you want?!"
"I just want to talk! C-Can I come in? It's freezing out here!!" shivered Sakura.
"That all depends. Did you bring me another stupid wreath like that idiot Naruto did?" asked Sasuke.
Sasuke could swear that he just saw a wreath fly by his window.
"S-So can I come in now?" asked Sakura.
"Hell no!! I saw that wreath, now just tell me what the fuck is it you want to talk about!!!" shouted Sasuke.
There was a brief moment of silence. "Me and some of the other rookie nine are throwing a Christmas party tonight and you're invited."
"Oh goody." Said Sasuke flatly.
"So um are you going to come?" asked Sakura.
"Screw you!!! I wouldn't come to your party if my life depended on it!!!" shouted Sasuke.
He could hear a brief whimper from behind the door.
"Anyways…" Sasuke could hear the hurt in her voice. "H-Have you seen Naruto lately? He seems to have just disappeared."
"Like I care what happens to that dobe!! He can freeze to death for all I care!!!"
There was yet another brief moment of silence.
"You know Sasuke, everybody always says some pretty mean things about you. That you're cold hearted, selfish, a dick, one person even called you gay. But despite all of this I always stuck up and defended you, but if you wouldn't blink an eye if a friend of yours died because you didn't care THEN I DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH YOU!!!"
Sasuke heard Sakura sob as she ran away.
"Serves the bitch right." Said Sasuke.
"Hn. Naruto's fine, he's always fine." But he said it more to reassure himself even thought he would never admit (even to himself).
Sasuke walked upstairs and started to brush his teeth in the bathroom. However when he looked into the mirror he thought for a moment he saw Itatchi. Sasuke quickly put it aside as a trick of the light.
He got into his pajamas and slipped into bed. He turned off the light next to his bed and tucked himself in. But when Sasuke closed his eyes he was bothered by yet another light only this one seemed to be glowing blue.
Sasuke stood up to see where the Hell that stupid light was coming from only to see his dead older brother. But there were a few things different him, for one thing he was transparent and another he had tons of chains attached to him. There was even one giant link labeled "Uchiha Clan"
"I thought I killed you!!" said Sasuke.
"You did. And I ended up in Hell."
"Big surprise; killing an entire clan kind of guarantees that don't you think?"
"But even if I hadn't I still would've ended up that and I still would've had these chains. Do you know why?"
"No and frankly I don't care. You're probably just the results of something I ate. I knew I shouldn't have trusted that waitress!"
"You can see me with your senses. Why don't you believe your senses?"
"Because they can be fooled so easily, there are hundreds of reasons that could explain you before me. For all I know this could be a genjutsu."
Itachi had had it with his little brother and pulled him out of bed and pinned him against the wall.
"Now you listen to me, little brother!! I didn't have to come all the way up here to warn you but frankly it seemed like a better idea than staying in the hot place!!!"
Sasuke tried to struggle free from his grip but everytime he would try to get a grip on Itachi's arm his hands would go right through him.
"Do you see these chains? I earned these chains even before I killed the Uchiha clan. I forged these chains during my lifetime, link by link, there's one for every evil deed I did. The really big one is the whole killing the clan thing. I only looked out for myself and never gave a care for my fellow man and now I have an eternity to pay for it. In fact you're in the same boat as me."
"What are you talking about?! I never did anything like kill an entire clan!!" argued Sasuke.
"But you still did a lot of bad things Sasuke!!! Quantity is every bit as important as quality down there!! And trust me, I can tell just by looking at you that you've made many more chain links than I!"
Sasuke's breath was stolen from him. Could it really be true that he was gonna end up worse than Itachi.
"But lucky for you, you may have the chance to save yourself." Itachi grumbled. "Not that I ever got such a chance."
Itachi soon recomposed himself as he saw Sasuke's questioning glare. "Anyways, tonight you will be visited by three spirits. Listen to them and do as they say, who knows, maybe you'll be able to break your chains unlike I did."
Itachi pulled Sasuke closer to his face and said "Don't blow it!" Itachi threw Sasuke back onto the bed. "Expect the first to arrive at the stroke of twelve!!" The windows flew open letting in a whirlwind which wrapped itself around Itachi. "FARWEEEEEEEEELLL!!!" The wind disappeared taking Itachi with it.
Sasuke looked at the mess caused by the exit of his dead brother. "He always did like to make an exit…drama king. Hn."
That's it for the first chapter. I hoped you all enjoyed it, I tried to keep a certain level of professionalism which I hope I have maintained. I also tried to keep some jokes without it turning into a parody. Fingers crossed.
