Naruto: My Demon
By: Hugo Reed
Chapter 1: Without You
Naruto Uzamaki was not having a good day. First off, his alarm clock hadn't gone off properly. So, he had missed his teams very first practice after he'd spent three years training with Jiyira. Then, his favorite ramen stand had been closed for repairs and remodeling. Then, to top it off, a mob had attacked him to try and kill him, again. Now Naruto was running around town to try and hide because it was illegal for a ninja to harm a civilian. However, hiding wouldn't be easy.
All the passageways and hiding spots he'd found as a twelve year old were too small or narrow now. Yet, he had grown a lot and knew how to get up high with chakra, and that caused the people to take long detours before they reached him. Then he merely leapt off to another section. His real problem began whenever other ninja started chasing him. He couldn't hide from them. All he could do was try and outlast them. It worked to because of his outrageous stamina. He looked down at his stomach and swore at it.
"Dammit! Why'd I have to be a container?"
He sighed and used chakra to propel himself deeper and faster though the town. It took another hour or so for it to end, but then the ninja gave up. Naruto smiled at the fact that a genin had outrun and outwitted four ANBU, two Jonnin and five chunnin. Naruto then leapt quickly to his favorite spot in all of Kohona, the hokage faces. He preferred to spend a lot of his time on the fourth hokage's head. Naruto was so focused on the village itself that he never heard the ninja sneak up behind him.
"GOT YOU!" shouted the jonin.
He stabbed Naruto viciously with a kunai. Naruto felt time slow down as the dagger entered his back, right in the middle of his spine. He fell very slowly face-first off the mountainside. He could feel the wind rushing past his head. He could see the ninja jumping off the mountain and tackling him to hasten his fall. He slowly looked up and saw the quickly approaching ground. He hit it with full force. Then time seemed to move at it's normal speed again. The man didn't waste any time.
He pulled out another kunai knife and began to stab Naruto over and over again with what seemed to be a great happiness. Naruto felt the cold, hard steel dig it's way into his back before forcing it's way back out. He could feel his own blood covering his clothes. The man stabbed him in the back of the neck, causing Naruto to cough up blood. At this point he felt the pressure of the red chakra wanting to rise. He forced it back. If he lost control again, a great many people wouldn't live to see the night.
The man flipped Naruto over and began to stab him over and over again in the ribs. Naruto coughed up blood again and again. He could feel the wounds on his back were already nearly healed. The man stabbed him in the gut and flipped him over again. Naruto was in too much pain to even protest.
"How do you like this Kyuubi!?" asked the man.
Naruto didn't respond.
"Is this fun you damn demon! Is this how much fun you had killing my sister?!"
He stabbed Naruto again.
"It seems your good a healing yourself you little monster! That's ok, I got all the time in the world for you, demon!"
He pulled Naruto upright and then slashed him across the chest twice. Once diagonally in either direction. Naruto was stabbed again and again and again. His vision cut out. Naruto fell forward and was stabbed in the back yet again. He groaned. Kyuubi had already healed his wounds again.
"You just don't know when to lay down and die do you? You fucking fox!"
Naruto felt the hands flip him over again. Then he felt the hands grip him around the neck and started force down on him, forcing the air from his lungs and refusing to let anymore enter. His black world turned strange and bubbly. Then he felt all real though and feeling slip away from him.
Naruto didn't open his eyes. He could hear an extremely steady dripping sound. He knew automatically where he was. Inside his own mind with the Kyuubi. He opened his eyes and could see the extremely large cell that held the Lord of Demons. He groaned and stood up slowly. The demon spoke to him in a voice that held malice in every syllable.
"Back again, kit?"
Naruto had no fear and showed it. Kyuubi raise an eyebrow.
"Because of your presence I was almost killed again."
His voice was angry, but not loud or bursting. He glared angrily at the Kyuubi. Inside the wonderful blue eyes the world showed a life of pain, hate, rejection and scorn shined brightly to the outside world. The shine would've made the rest of the world petty and dark, if they hadn't shined with such dark things.
"You know kit, not one person has ever looked at me like that! Every single person i've ever met before you has trembled with fear at my very presence, why do you not seem to fear me? If I wanted to, kit, I could pick you up and crush you like a wooden chew toy."
Naruto looked Kyuubi in the eye and spoke.
"Because... I don't fear you. I know you have power that greatly exceeds my own. I don't care. I don't fear you."
"Kit, not even the eight-tailed demon and my greatest rival would've said such words to me. No one would. You really are something else. At least my container isn't a whipped dog. It would be so typical. Like your friend Gaara, most containers l"
"Kyuubi! Your beginning to piss me off! This is my mind! I hold to cards here!"
Naruto brought his hands up in the ram sign and focused a great amount of energy. Kyuubi's cell shrank quickly. The demon shrank and fell to the back of the cell Naruto charged right on in, and skidded to a halt. In Kyuubi's place was a girl. She was wearing a baggy t-shirt that didn't entirely hide her large bosom. She wore a pair of shorts that went to about her mid thigh and a tan trench coat over it all. Her hair was an orange-red and she had nine long flowing tails of the same color.
"Dammit Kit. I haven't been forced into this form for an age and an age!"
Kyuubi's voice was different. It still held the power and strength that it had always had, but it was actually feminine.
"Your a girl?" asked Naruto.
"Give the Kit a bone, he figured it out."
"Sorry, It's just... I mean."
"Are you a sexist Kit?"
"NO! I mean everything pointed out that... Look your the lord of demons. You have the deep manly voice, well not now mind you, and you quiet frankly scared me shitless. Can you really blame me? I mean, if you had even given me a sign..."
Kyuubi rolled her eyes a little. She and Naruto talked for several hours more. Eventually, the Kyuubi turned to him and place an almost caring arm around the young man's shoulders.
"Look, kit... you know you'll have to use my chakra eventually for something."
"No," said Naruto. "Not now, and not ever again."
"Because," Naruto said glaring. "I can't control you, and I will not let you hurt my friends the way that... that people say I will."
"KIT! You dare refuse my wonderful power?!"
"YES! Yes I do you bastard fox!" Naruto shouted. "I will never let you hurt anyone close to me ever again! You hurt the prevy sage and other who I've cared about after I took too much of you chakra. You made me attack kakashi-sense! You made me nearly kill my other sensei! You caused me a load of pain when you make me go into the four-tailed state. You made me knock Sakura out and nearly helped kill her! Everything bad I've ever done has been because of you!"
Kyuubi looked shocked at the young blonde.
"Without you I could've had a normal childhood! Without you I could've had a normal ninja's education! Without you I could've had parents! I could've had a family! There was a sign someone painted on the walls of my house in my own blood. 'Demons shed no tears for the pain of others' was what it said. It's true! You killed my parents! You made me nearly kill Sasuke instead of bringing him back! You made my brother leave. Without you I wouldn't be seen as a dead last!"
Kyuubi was touched. The demon was nearly brought to tears over the pain she had caused this one boy! What was so special about him? He was just like the thousands of others she had ruined! She didn't care about any of them! Why him? Was it because... maybe because he was right to think this?
"Without you I wouldn't have had any of the hell I've suffered! Without I would have real friends I could trust! Without you I could be normal! I could live you monster! I hate you! I HATE YOU! DAMMIT! YOU SAID I SHOULD BE THANKFUL TO YOU?! I HATE YOU YOU DAMN FOX! I SWEAR I'LL KILL YOU ONE DAY! I DO WHATEVER IT TAKES EVEN IF I HAVE TO KILL MYSELF TO DO IT! YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY? BECAUSE YOU RUINED EVERYTHING."
Kyuubi allowed a single tear to fall. Naruto saw it.
"HEY! Don't think you can sway me with false tear demon! You shed no tears for others' pains! I know you! You live inside me! BUT YOU AREN'T ME! WITHOUT YOU PEOPLE WOULD SEE ME AND NOT HATE ME! WITHOUT YOU I WOULDN'T BE AFRAID TO LOVE PEOPLE! WITHOUT YOU I WOULDN'T BE AFRAID TO HAVE FRIENDS! WITHOUT YOU I WOULDN'T STAY AWAKE FOR HOURS AT NIGHT CRYING BECAUSE I WAS AFRAID TO LOSE CONTROL! WITHOUT YOU I COULD LIVE!"
Kyuubi looked him in the eyes. She didn't see falsehood or pity. She saw hate, scorn, rage and pain. People say that looking into a demon's eye is horrible. It is nothing to looking into the eyes of people who are in pain or suffering from rage. Naruto's eyes showed both. It was worse to see then any demon's hate. Kyuubi wasn't heartless. She usually didn't feel as much compassion for humans as usual, but to not feel anything for Naruto at this moment wasn't inhuman, it was against the foundations of life.
"PUT ME BACK DAMMIT! PUT ME BACK SO I CAN KILL YOU! I WANT OUT I WANT IT TO END! I HAVE MY LIMITS AND I CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE! BECAUSE OF YOU PEOPLE WILL NEVER EVER RESPECT ME! EVERYTHING IS YOU FAULT YOU DAMN DEMON! Without you--"
Kyuubi interrupted with a raised hand.
"Kit, I never pick you! I know i've made you life a living hell. I was the reason that all your first friends tried to kill you. I am the reason that everyone hates you. I am sorry kit. I truly am. As I already said though, I never picked you."
Naruto laughed. The laugh wasn't happy. It was pained and sad.
"Your sorry? Your sorry?! Oh that's nice the great lord of demons is SORRY! Hey how's it goin' yeah by the way sorry for royally fucking up your life. Sorry I made your life a living hell, but what could I do. I didn't pick you so I'm not to blame. You demons disgust me!"
"It's not my fault!"
"I bet it wasn't. Just what I said. Not your fault so why do you care? The great Kyuubi no kitsune actually has a heart, bullshit I don't buy it. Find a better act."
"Dammit kit! I'm sorry! I do care! Demons aren't cold unfeeling assholes like you think. I care about you! If you die I'd be fine! I'd be free. I don't want that because I'd just be sealed again. I don't want to cause another child your pain and--"
"Bullshit! You will die when I do Kyuubi. Cover you ass some other way. I'm going now you asshole!"
Naruto left his own mind quickly. He left Kyuubi to doing something she had almost never done. He left her to cry.
