Chappie 1, Buh-bye!
I was sixteen, the day I was banished from the Village Hidden in the Leaves. I got the news when Tsunade-Baa-chan called me to her office.
"Yo, Baa-chan!" I called when the door opened. Inside were all the council members, that cripple, Danzo, and Tsunade and Pervy-sage.
Tsunade's desk had countless sake bottles littering it, and she looked like she wanted more, needed more. "Naru, I'm so sorry, but..." She couldn't go on, her throat was too tight but she didn't want to cry in front of the council, or Danzo for that matter. So Danzo took up the responsibility of dishing out his 'justice'.
"Naru Uzumaki, for using the Kyubi's chakra and endangering the Leaf Village, you are given two choices." He snarled menacingly. "One, to join ROOT and be trained by me. Or two, refuse and be banished from the Leaf Village!"
He was counting on Naru's love for her village so she would choose option one, but she wasn't the number one most unpredictable ninja for nothing.
"I pick, option number two." I said simply, her expression blanker than any ROOT's. "I know full well what happens to people who join ROOT."
Danzo spluttered in an attempt to make a come back.
As calmly as I could, I walked to Tsunade's desk and took off the necklace she had given me four years ago. "Here, I'm afraid I won't be able to become Hokage. I'll keep the head band if you don't mind though, it has sentamental value."
As I spoke, I untied the head band given to me by Iruka-sensei and made a slash through the symbol using a kunai.
"See ya around, Baa-chan." I waved to her before walking back out the door.
At the Leaf Gates, all of my friends came to see me off. Hinata and Sakura were crying, Sasuke looked almost heart broken. We'd been pretty close after I brought him back from the Valley of the End.
He was currently letting Sakura cry into his shoulder. Kiba was holding Hinata and Akamaru(Who was as big as a bear) was hanging his head and moaning pitifully.
"Don't look for trouble." Neji sighed sadly.
"I usually don't have to." I countered, trying to sound upbeat. "It literally comes looking for me."
It has been four years since that day, today is the anaversary. My golden hair that before was unruly has straightened out, it also has a red tinge to it, most likely a mix of my parent's hair.
It also now hangs to the tips of my thighs when I leave it down. Though for a ninja, and a missing-nin at that, loose hair is often a hindrance. I normally keep it in a high pony tail.
As for my wardrobe, I now wear a kunoichi's kimono. Which, in actuality, is a kimono that reaches midway down my thighs. It is black with a red obi, it also had a red kanji on my chest above the heart, the kanji for fox.
Over this, I wear a dark blue coat that slightly resembles Tsunade's. I use it to hide numerous scrolls and weapons up my sleeves and in the many pockets I sew into it.
I've also sewn storage seals into key areas of the jacket, making the number of weapons held, well over a thousand.
Apart from my eyes being purple, and being permanantly slitted, the only thing changed about my personal appearance is the whiskers have gotten darker, more noticable. I also have fangs. I've stopped hiding them under the genjutsu.
One month after my banishment, I was captured by Akatsuki, but instead of stealing the fox, they trained me for two years. At that time, they began talking about taking Kyu and I made my escape.
Afterwards though, I was greatly weakened. Orochimaru, having been cheated out of Sasuke, came after me. At first, he wanted to kill me, but then I did something that surprised him greatly.
I activated my gekki genkai.
Turns out, my mother came from a clan that was rumored to have one of the most powerful Gekki Genkais in the world. This bloodline trait, came out as golden chakra wings.
He captured me, wanting to learn the secrets of this jutsu. I stayed with him for a year, and only that long because I wanted to learn about my ancestry. That is when I lrevealed my father was the fourth Hokage and my mother Kushina Uzumaki.
I took with me many scrolls filled with jutsus.
For the past year, I've been making money catching missing-nin, partly for money, partly to test my skills. I can happily say my jutsu library has increased significantly.
Not only do I learn the common jutsu from scrolls and various ninja who agree to teach me, I learn from the demon within me.
I have managed to look into his own mind as he looks through mine.
As such, I see he knows countless jutsu, and I have made it my goal to master as many as possible. I will also say, that the happy-go-lucky blonde everyone once knew, has long since died. I am what remains, I am the new, Kyubi no Yoko.
Opening my eyes to the morning, I sighed and sat up in the motel futon I had slept in. Yawning, I got up and went to the bathroom for a shower. Taking off the yukata, I slipped into the running water and washed the grime from my skin. It was nice to take a warm shower now and again, as I didn't usually get a chance to access one.
Stepping out, I placed on my usual wear and left the motel, leaving the money on the futon.
I left via window, knowing some ninja were in the lobby. It was possible they were merely getting a room for the night, but I did not wish to take any chances.
For some reason, their chakra signatures felt slightly familiar.
Shaking it off, I continued on my way to my home.
It was a small farm, mainly growing herbs that my husband used for healing. He was a physician, and though he wasn't a med-nin, he helped to heal many serious wounds of mine.
As I came into sight of the garden, my two year old son began running to me on unsteady legs.
His name is Somma, he has black hair, and blue eyes. He is pale, like his father. He is also Orochimaru's son, born of rape.
I picked him up as he reached me and spun around a few times.
"Hello Somma, were you a good boy for Outo-san?" I asked, looking towards my husband who was stretching his back. "Good to see your home again, Kisune." He walked to me and we embraced and kissed shortly.
"Good to come home." I replied sweetly. I admit, when it comes to Sora, I do tend to relax and put away my cold mask.
Sora is tall, he has flaming red hair, and his eyes are a beautiful green. We went inside and I cooked up a meal for us, Somma was happy to be given a new toy I had brought back with me.
As we ate, I untied my head band from around my neck. Here, I wasn't the missing-nin Naru Uzumaki, here, I was Kisune Yoki Chizun.
"Somma said his first word this morning." Sora announced proudly. "Go on, show Ouka-san what you can do!" Somma looked up from the toy boat and began yelling out mama.
I swept him up, much to his pleasure and declared my son a genius. "Just you wait, your gonna be a genius to rival all geniuses!"
Sora laughed deeply and my own bell like laugh joined his, Somma's cute giggle cutting in as well.
I took Somma upstairs for a nap and to get a little alone time with Sora-kun. I sat with him on the couch and we talked about what had gone on.
Just when we were about to have a little fun though, I sensed the same chakra signatures from before right outside.
"Sora, go upstairs and get Somma." I whispered.
He realised the situation immediatly and ran up the steps to our son's room, while I went outside to confront whoever it was.
Imagine my surprise when I found my old team outside.
It's a good thing I had grabbed my head band before running outside.
"Leaf shinobi?" I growled curiously. "Why on Earth would you humble my little abode?"
"Nice to see you too, Naru." Kakashi greeted, somewhat serious.
Sora chose now to walk out the door, holding a sleepy eyed Somma in his arms. "What do I owe the pleasure, Hatake?" I asked coldly, tieing the head band around my neck.
"We're here to speak with you, do you have a minute or two to spare?" Sasuke asked.
I looked over the team, Kakashi hadn't changed, at all. Sasuke had grown, I could also see he now wore a ring around his finger. Sakura wore a similar ring, she had grown as well, she seemed even stronger than before. There was also a new face, he was even paler than Orochimaru, and he had a creepy fake smile on his lips.
Sora had used the time to walk up behind me and I turned to him, not all the way, not wanting to show my back to prospective enemy.
"Don't worry Sora, these are, old friends of mine, from my Leaf village days." I said calmly, and somewhat hesitantly.
Now we all sat in the living room. Kakashi and the team sitting on the couch, me, Sora, and Somma on the love seat, directly oposite.
"So, what did you want to speak about?" I asked, taking Somma from Sora at the same time.
"I'll cut straight to the chase, the fourth shinobi war is about to break out, and we need your help." Kakashi said in all seriousness. "We've heard of your exploits, and Tsunade gave us this mission. Our mission is to offer you whatever you want, if you'll come and help the Leaf village in it's time of need."
Somma rubbed the sleep from his eyes and squirmed, wanting to get down. "Mama!" He squalled when I wouldn't let him down.
Sakura caught that alright. "Did he just call you mama?"
Great, now I have to explain, again. "Somma is my son." I said simply. "Sora here is my husband."
They all just blinked at this bit of info, even the newbie looked stunned.
That is when I felt another chakra signature, one that caused my blood to boil. Orochimaru was here. "Sora, take Somma and hide." I whispered urgently.
He took Somma who began to cry, but I had to go out and draw that snake away from my family.
Kakashi and the others followed me outside, and we saw Orochimaru exiting the line of trees. "Why, hello Naru-chan, tell me, how's little Somma-kun?"
"You bastard!" I cursed. "You stay the Hell away from my son, Oro-chan!"
He scowled at the accursed nickname, but didn't fall for the bait. "What, don't fathers get visiting rights?" He asked. "After all, he's not just your son."
"Naru, what does he mean, when he says father?" Kakashi asked.
"The guys a frickin rapist, need I say more?" I snapped angrily.
Suddenly Sora's screams and Somma's wail could be heard from inside the house. "Sora!" I cried, turning to run back in to him.
Suddenly Orochimaru's lapdog, Kabuto came out, carrying an unconious Sora and squalling Somma. "Kabuto, I swear, if you so much as harm a single hair on his head, I won't kill you, I'll massacre you!"
Kyu could sense my emotions and started sending me chakra, just enough to make Kabuto freeze momentarily. Long enough for me to pull out a three-pronged kunai and used Hirashin to appear behind him and knock him out.
I caught Somma and Sora and laid them gently on the ground.
Pulling out another kunai, I slit Kabuto's throat. "Sorry, but I had to put down your lapdog, Oro-chan." I crooned sickeningly.
He growled and began making handsigns for a summoning.
I bit my thumb as well and made the signs for my own, personal summons.
At the exact same moment, we both yelled. "Summoning Jutsu!"
When the smoke cleared, Orochimaru and I were both standing on the heads of our summons. His of course, was the giant snake, Manda, while mine...was the Kyubi no Kitsune himself!
I had devised a way to summon the fox from his seal, so that he could fight with me. Somma screamed in fear and I gave him a hug to assure him all was alright. Sora was still unconcious, but he seemed to not be to badly hurt.
Glimpsing downward, I saw my old team still standing in shock. "Hey, if you don't get your asses in gear, your gonna get squashed!" I yelled to them.
Luckily for them they heeded my warning, because Manda and Kyubi weren't waiting any longer. They charged, and so began a battle to end all battles.
Both of the Summons had been dismissed, and now it was just me and Oro-chan. We were both breathing hard, beginning to run low on chakra.
"You won't get away this time, Orochimaru!" I roared, creating a rasenshuriken in both hands. "Today you die!"
I threw them one after another, but when the second one managed to sever his upper and lower bodies, a bunch of snakes reconnected them. "You've improved, Naru-chan." He commented. "I'll see you again, try not to kill Somma."
He melted into the ground in the damned irritating way he did to escape.
In all this time, I'd forgotten about Sora and Somma.
Turning around, I saw Sakura healing Sora of his wounds and the mystery boy was being tormented by Somma. Somma was pulling at his face, pinching him mercilessly.
After silently praising my son, I walked over to the group. Sora's eyes opened and he saw me, immediatly he was standing up and hugging me in relief that I was alright. "Are you alright? Your not hurt are you?"
"Sora, don't worry so much." I scolded him gently, returning the hug. "I was only fighting one of the greatest ninja in the world."
He sighed and held me out at arm's reach to inspect me for wounds.
Kakashi cleared his throat, loudly.
"Well, I don't suppose you have an answer yet?" He asked uncomfortably, having rescued the newb from my son and now having his mask pulled at.
As curious as I was to see Kakashi's true face, I took Somma off his hands anyway. "I didn't exactly get any time to think about it." I admitted shamelessly. "But since I don't really hold a grudge against the Leaf, I'll let you guys stay here the night and tell you what I've decided in the morning."
The Sun was beginning to set, the fight had lasted six hours. They agreed to stay, and I went inside to begin cooking for seven, a big task, but doable.
As we ate, we began a routine, ask and answer session. "So, how long have you been married?" Sakura asked.
"A year." I answered curtly.
"Is Orocimaru really Somma's father through rape?" The new guy, Sai, asked.
"Do you really think I would willingly sleep with that Fruitcake?" I asked, a pair of chopsticks half way to my mouth. "He was worried about my clan really dying out and the next thing I know, he'd torn off all my clothes."
That memory was not one I liked to revisit. Neither would you if you had seen a naked Orochimaru. "The only upside was Somma." I added quietly, more to myself than them.
That night, I kept Somma in the same room as Sora and I, not wanting to take any risks. There was something off about that Sai guy.
The next morning, I was fully rested and ready with my answer when they staggered down the steps like this was a C-rank mission. "Glad to see your up." I said, leaning against the kitchen door way.
"Ah, Naru, do you have an answer?" Kakashi asked cheerfully.
I turned away and sighed tiredly. "Somehow, I just know this is going to be a mistake." Turning to look him in the eye, I said. "But if the Leaf agrees to let me bring Sora and Somma, then I'll go."
He seemed relieved by that, I could see him visibly relaxing, as though he'd been expecting a fight. "Tell me something, Hatake, what would happen if the Leaf village found out about Somma's father?"
He couldn't answer for a long time, and I studied him carefully. "Maybe someday, like they began accepting you after a time."
But unlike me, Somma wouldn't grow up without parents if I had any say in the matter.
Four days later, I was standing with Somma on my hip, in front of the village gates. "How nastalgic." I muttered. Sora put a comforting hand on my shoulder and I shot him a grateful look.
"Well, it's about time the Leaf knew Naru Uzumaki Chizun was back in town." I smirked.
Sora personally, was glad not to have to pretend I was Kisune, but that didn't change the fact we were married. We walked through the gates, people stopped and stared at me like I was some ghost come back from the dead. I attempted to ignore them, until they began bowing to me, right there in the streets. "Okay I was going to ignore it, but this is a bit much." I said, eye twitching begining.
"Your reputation for catching and delivering missing-nin to our gates has helped your reputation spread." Sakura revealed. And admittedly, I had done that when I heard the village was in financial trouble. "A lot of people see you as their invisible protector, even though presecuted, you helped to protect the village!"
By the time we'd reached the Hokage tower, I was more than ready for people to stop bowing and scraping to me. And then to top it off, the ANBU guards opened the doors for me.
"Alright, that's it, this is too much! What the Hell I do to make everyone treat me like a princess!" I demanded, annoyed that so many people were treating me like some Damyo's daughter.
"They also heard about how you killed off an entire team of ANBU in less than two seconds." Kakashi said, scratching the back of his head. "Your considered a SSS-rank missing-nin who is still loyal to the Leaf. Not to mention there are a lot of rumors going around about your parentage."
I hung my head in embarrassment, as that was the most likely reason for them acting this way.
We got to Tsunade's office, to find all of the Leaf 12 had all gathered. When Tsunade saw me, she jumped up and with speed surprising even me, tackled me in a bone crushing bear hug of doom.
"Naru! Your back!" She cried happily, while I was beginning to turn blue.
I pushed her off and she looked me over, checking to see how much I'd changed. "Yeah, I'm back."
"Care to explain what I'll be doing while I'm here? And where my little family will be staying?" I asked curtly, trying to look unruffled.
"Certainly." Tsunade said, sitting back down at her desk. "We've heard of your skill, and the council made a desicion in our favor, they want you to come back as a shinobi and help us. When the war is over, you'll be given full shinobi status back, as well as everything that rightfully belongs to you."
She was under the impression I would be staying, now I had to set her straight.
"Tsunade, I'll be helping in this war, but I will not rejoin the shinobi ranks." I said, loud enough for everyone in the room to hear. "If anything, I'll be quitting as any kind of shinobi. I've been meaning to retire for some time."
Everyone gasped, but Somma was having more fun pulling on my hair for me to notice. "In case you haven't noticed, I'm holding my two year old son. I would kind of enjoy being around to raise him. Being a shinobi is too dangerous to garuntee that."
