Writer's Note: I'm sorry for what happen, but again I restarted on the story I made, based on Dorlath's Naruto the Marine. Starting over again after all that hard work can become a pain in the ass. Because of the incident my son made, I'm forced to makes some changes in my original story.
Also, I am going update Naruto & One Piece Crossover 2…not a sequel to Naruto & One Piece Crossover if that is what you all think. In this crossover, it is a different story.
Chapter 1: The Devil Fruit
Leaf Island; Grand Line
"Hey boss…what are you doing?"
Turning around, Naruto discovered a 12 year old Konohamaru Sarutobi standing right behind him. He has short bristly brown hair, black eyes, and a small chip in his tooth. His outfit was a yellow shirt with grey shorts, and a long blue scarf. On top of his foreheads was a pair of goggles.
"Keep it down will you," Naruto respond to Konohamaru with harsh whispered.
"What are you doing boss?" Konohamaru asked, this time in a low tone.
"What do you think I'm doing Konohamaru?" Naruto respond. "I'm getting out so I can join the Marines."
"Again?" Konohamaru said with surprise and disbelief before he responds with mocking tone. "Well good luck on that."
"What is that supposed to mean?" Naruto asked Konohamaru, confused.
"Come on Boss," Konohamaru told him. "I know you're serious, but you've tried this about a dozen times in the last ten years and Grandpa and Grandma have caught you every time. With a boat docked here, you know they are watching it boss."
"It's different this time," Naruto insisted. "I have a plan that's will work this time. So if you have anything to say to me, say it now. It might be a long time before we see each other again."
"Okay, goodbye Naruto. And See you for dinner," Konohamaru told him cheerfully before he left Naruto alone.
Annoyed, Naruto turned around and stalked off, Konohamaru laughing at his antics as he departed. He and the rest across the island may doubt him, but he'd been planning this attempt for a while and he wasn't about to fail again. He was getting off of Leaf Island. It was not that he had anything against the island, but its single small town with a population less than 800 felt completely restraining Naruto D. Namikaze. He had much bigger dreams than possibly spend the rest of his life here on this island.
Naruto had been training his whole life to be ready for the Marines. Since he was young he had been training every day, every night, pushing his body to absolute limits. Such example is Rokushiki, a Marine martial art which his father taught him and the rest of the village.
Years of combat training has made him into a powerful fighter and he has honed his fighting skills by defending the island from numerous pirate attacks. He has learn three of the six powers of Rokushiki; Soru, Geppo, and Kami-e, becoming extremely good on each fighting skill. In his point of view for studying these three powers, he believes speed, greater height, and agility are the most importance in combat.
Naruto knew he's going missed everyone here on Leaf Island. He knew he's going to missed Konohamaru, who look up to him as an older brother. Not to mention, Asuma, the Mayor and Mistress Sarutobi's laid-back son. And he'd really is going to miss Old Man Sarutobi and his wife, despite the fact their severe logical approach irritated him.
But there was a whole world of exciting people to meet and things to do. And today it would all start he promised himself. He'd won his favorite outfit to commemorate the occasion, a white shirt and white pants. The shirt had blue seagull designs on its sleeves. It wasn't an official Marine uniform, but it was his personal tribute to his career choice.
It didn't take him long to come upon a small warehouse on the edge of the village. It was even cruder than most of the houses, actually having a thatched roof of all things. Sneaking inside as quietly as he could, he closed the door behind him. Then grabbing an empty crate from the back, he moved it next to a large pile of similar crates near the entrance. Opening the top he climbed inside and closed it behind him.
Previously he'd always tried to sneak directly onto the ship. But as Sakura had said, the old man was sure to have it watched. But if he hid among the cargo the village was selling to that merchant ship, they'd carry him on board themselves and he'd appear to be nothing more than another box of goods.
He didn't have to wait long before he heard the door open and soon after felt his crate being lifted. He remained as motionless as he could, barely dare to breathe. But after what seemed like an eternity to Naruto's frayed nerves, the box was set down. He then waited what must have been twenty minutes listening for any other movement.
Finally, he decided to risk lifting the lid to peak out, only to find that he was staring at the faces of Mayor Hiruzen Sarutobi and Biwako Sarutobi.
"What are you two doing on the ship?" Naruto demanded of him.
"We're not on the ship, we're in my office," Hiruzen replied. "I was having you followed. So when you tried your little stunt, I just had you carried here."
Looking around Naruto confirmed this to be the case. They were in the somewhat cramped room in Hiruzen's house that doubled as his mayor's office. It wasn't any cleaner than usual either, books lying about haphazardly all over the place. And his large desk was completely covered in paperwork dealing with village affairs.
Mayor Hiruzen Sarutobi was a handsome old man who seems to enjoy smoking a pipe. His outfit consist common working clothes; Dark blue pants and shirt that were probably cotton, like every piece of clothing someone didn't trade for from outside the island.
His wife Biwako was a powerfully-steady woman. She seems to be the type who looks to be very as wise and intelligent as her husband. But also wasn't above lecturing others for not focusing on important pictures ahead.
Naruto climbed out of the crate, realizing there was no longer any point to remaining inside.
"Why do you guys keep stopping me?" Naruto asked accusingly.
"Because with your father gone," Biwako replied resolutely. "We're your guardians. And we're not about to let you run off without understanding the full implications of your actions."
"How many times do I have to say this?" Naruto retorted. "I'm 17 years old now and yes I do understand the risks involved. Yes being a marine can get me killed, and this island is on the grand line, so it's even more dangerous. I know all that."
"And what about the risks to the other villagers you're leaving would involve?" Hiruzen questioned him. "Many of them have expressed concerns to me about your desires to leave. Considering what happened after your father left, I can't say I blame them."
"That had nothing to do with him!" Naruto insisted angrily. "If it was really some curse because a villager left the island, why did it happen more than ten years after he left? I'm not going to stay here because of a bunch of superstitious villagers who should be grateful my father came back to save them after how they treated him!"
"We still don't feel you're ready to make that decision yourself," Biwako told him before turning to her husband. "Can you talk some sense into him? He proves to be the most difficult."
As she left Hiruzen says "Naruto you had to realize Biwako's reasons on why she can' have you run off to join the Navy. She just doesn't want to lose you the way we lost your father."
Naruto knew that Biwako and his father were very close, similar to the relationship between a mother and son, despite not begin related in blood. Like him, she has suffered grimly over his death. He also aware of her distrust towards the Navy forces, though he couldn't understand her reasons of suspicion.
"Do you really wanted to join the Navy?" he asked Naruto.
"Yes!" Naruto replied quickly.
"What about what you really wanted?" Hiruzen asked. "What do you really personally wanted in life?"
"I want to become a Marine like my father!" Naruto replied in an insisted tone.
"I think your father doesn't really want you to follow his footsteps in the Navy when you're grown up Naruto," Hiruzen replied.
"What makes you say that?" Naruto asked him.
"He told me lot things," Hiruzen assumed. "For example, he felt you should follow you own path, not because you want to follow him the Navy. By all means, with your own free will."
"I'm following my own path!" Naruto said determinedly. "My path is into the Navy like my father before me."
"Is that so," alleged Hiruzen. "Well in that case, there is something I want to give to you since you claimed to be 17 now."
"What's that?" Naruto asked.
Motioning Naruto to follow, he led him to a mid-sized wooden chest in a corner of the room.
"This was found on your father's ship after he died," Sarutobi told him.
"Really?" Naruto asked excitedly, then narrowed his eyes and looked accusingly at the old man. "Why didn't you give this to me before now?"
"You were too young," he responded. "Biwako and I didn't feel right opening it myself, but for all I know it could be full of guns and swords. Biwako believes it would be irresponsible giving this to you when you were a young. And more recently I was just afraid that whatever was in there would only reinforce that foolish notion of yours of joining the marines. But you're old enough now that you deserve to have it."
"I'm going to go open this. Thanks old man," Naruto told him then quickly grabbed the chest and rushed out of the room.
If it had been any larger, it would have been awkward to carry. But as it was, Naruto was able to make a decent pace while still trying not to jostle the contents too much. He was nearly to his house when he saw Konohamaru walking down the street toward him.
"Back already?" he asked him. "I take it things didn't go as planned Boss?"
"Not exactly, but there'll be other ships," Naruto replied optimistically.
"Isn't that chest from the grandpa's office boss?" Konohamaru asked him, frowning a bit at whatever picture his mind was putting together of the events that led to him taking possession of it.
"No, he gave it to me," Naruto corrected him cheerfully. "He says it belonged to my father. I'm bringing it home to see what's inside."
"Well, it makes sense he would choose today to give it to you," Konohamaru replied.
"What do mean by that?" Naruto asked, wracking his brain for any reason why today would be special but not coming up with anything.
"You must not have heard boss," Konohamaru told him. "The merchants decided to relax in the bar for a bit after finishing their business. In addition to that, a marine ship just entered the bay. They're just staying long enough to stock up on provisions and then they're leaving."
"Are you sure?" Naruto asked enthusiastically.
"Yeah, we almost never have two ships here at the same time. He probably wanted to distract you for a few hours until they've left since it'd be harder to guard both of them."
That did sound just like the old man too. Naruto was tempted to head to the bay right at that moment just to spite him. But even if it was playing into his hands, Naruto couldn't leave without seeing what was in the chest.
"Thanks, Konohamaru," he told him sincerely. "I'll just have to finish going through this before they leave. So I can't waste any more time talking."
With that he rushed off down the cobblestone path through the center of the town until he reached his house. It was a small single story building left to him by his father. Setting down the chest, he opened the door, slid the chest inside and let the door close behind him. Wasting no time he opened the lid and began going through the contents.
Looking inside he saw a small telescope sitting atop one of his father's marine uniforms. Moving the uniform he spotted three log poses. Although on closer inspection two of them were eternal poses. One was labeled Marineford and the other had 'Leaf Island' scrawled on it. That last one must have cost his father quite a bit. Custom made eternal poses weren't cheap, and he highly doubted anyone else would have cared enough to make one for their little backwater island.
The final item in the chest was another, much smaller chest. Naruto quickly pulled it out and opened the lid. But he certainly wasn't expecting to see a piece of fruit in it. Was the mayor playing a joke on him? There was no way a piece of fruit would sit in that chest for more than a decade without rotting.
Actually, there was one way. The fruit was unlike any he'd ever seen before. Sort of shaped like a pear, but red in color with purple spots. Could it be a devil fruit? Almost as soon as the possibility occurred to him, Naruto made up his mind. Grabbing the fruit he took a large bite out of it. The flavor of the taste was tremendously spiteful, but he ignored it and finished off the rest of the fruit. He left nothing behind as it seemed to lack a stem or core of any sort.
Thoughts of what amazing new power he might have received were swirling through his mind, but Naruto pushed them aside to focus on trying to confirm he actually had eaten a devil fruit. Those who had eaten one were supposed to be cursed by the sea, unable to swim. But risking drowning didn't seem like the best way to find out, and he didn't want anyone else to know about this just yet anyway.
He knew some devil fruit users could transform their bodies, so he decided to try that first. He attempted to will his body to transform in some way, when without warning he begins feel his body was changing. To his experience, he felt like he was growing in height, weight, and width. He even felt the inside of his body was changing, result of his muscles and bones felt like they are redesigning themselves. But despite this weird feeling he's experiencing, he felt he was growing stronger every moment.
Heading towards the mirror, Naruto saw that he has transformed into a fox. He's more athletic and taller in his human form, though he still slender looking. The fur color of his fox form was the colored red-orange fur, with his eyes no longer ocean blue but blood-red eyes. His hands shows vicious looking claws which he can retract by will. Strangely he has nine tails instead of one, which seems very strange as he recalls a fox has one tail instead of nine.
So he had eaten a Zoan fruit. That was good. From what he heard, Zoan Devil Fruit users are the most accomplished fighters in the Devil Fruit category as they mainly focuses on increasing their physical abilities to prodigious levels. Naruto, begin a formidable martial artist in his own right, felt this power will help him in his future career in the Navy.
As Naruto continue to gaze and be fill with awe over his Devil Fruit powers, he suddenly have an idea on how to get off Leaf Island.
An hour has pass when Naruto begin to look out his window with the telescope he'd found in the chest. He had a good view of the bay from there and could see that both ships were now preparing to leave. Still he waited a little longer; he'd have to time this almost perfectly. The marine shipped finished preparations first, and Naruto saw them getting ready to raise anchor. It was time to put his plan into action.
Slipping out his window, he began to dash towards the marine vessel. It was larger than most ships that came to port, being more than twice the size of the merchant ship docket a couple hundred yards from it. Just seeing the seagull painted on the ship's flag gave Naruto an extra burst of energy as he ran, determined that today would finally be the day he joined.
Out of the corner of his eye, he caught a villager running after him. Naruto grinned to himself realizing his speed had forced the man to abandon his attempts at stealth. But his smile vanished when he noticed that despite his best efforts, the man was slowly gaining on him. He just hoped he could stay ahead of him long enough.
As he approached the ship, he saw a second villager moving to intercept him, but Naruto continued to run for the ship. He was only about a dozen feet from the second man, with the first having closed the distance to about half that, when he took the two spherical objects he'd been holding in his hands and threw one at each man.
The smoke bombs went off, obscuring them from view, and in the confusion, Naruto made a sharp turn to the left and changed course toward the merchant vessel. The two men who had been chasing him did not immediately give pursuit thanks to the smokescreen. He'd traversed most of the 200 yards when still another man attempted to intercept him.
He prepared a third smoke bomb for the man who must have been assigned to watch this ship and threw it at his feet. But this one was prepared for the tactic and continued through the smoke in order to seize Naruto by the arm. Yet without warning, a large nine-tailed fox appeared out of the smoke. This completely caught the third man by surprise, which was the chance Naruto was looking forward as he ran toward the departing ship with all his might.
Naruto leaped in the air, landing on an invisible ground in the air, before making another leap towards the Marine ship. When using Geppo, he at first felt a moment of fear seeing all that water beneath him, for he knew that he will drown since all Devil Fruit users cannot swim. But it soon passed as soon as his feet landed solidly on the deck.
This startled a number of the marines on the deck who obviously hadn't been expecting his last second arrival and he found more than a few guns suddenly pointed at him.
"Who are you? What are you doing on board?" One of the uniformed marines demanded of him.
"Relax men," another voice called out. "It doesn't look like he means us any harm."
Transforming back to normal, he turns toward the voice he saw a fearsome-looking slivered-haired man, wearing a marine officer's uniforms, which appeared to be the rank of Vice Admiral. He was smoking a cigar and wearing black gloves. The other marines followed his orders and lowered their guns.
"Yeah, I'm here to enlist," Naruto told them cautiously, much happier with the guns no longer aimed at him and not wanting to do anything that would lead to them returning to their previous positions. "Are you in charge here?"
"I'm Vice Admiral John "Hannibal" Smith," the marine officer introduced himself. "Now would you mind telling me why you felt the need to make such a flashy entrance?"
"Most of the villagers are superstitious," Naruto replied. "They don't like to let anyone leave the island. But it's always been my dream to join the marines like my father did, so I wasn't about to let that stop me."
"I think I've heard of that superstition before," Vice Admiral Smith said thoughtfully. "Wait a minute; I knew Leaf Island sounded familiar. You're related to Admiral Minato D. Namikaze, the "Yellow Flash"?"
"He's my father," Naruto confirmed proudly. "Naruto D. Namikaze, reporting for duty, sir."
"Well then," Smith said, "if you turn out to be half the man your father was, it'd be nothing short of dereliction of duty if I stopped you from joining."
"Oops, sorry about that," the Vice Admiral added bashfully, realizing what he'd just said. "That was a bad choice of words. I didn't mean to bring that up."
"Don't worry about it," Naruto told the man.
"That look like one of the Rokushiki technique, Geppo, wasn't it?" he said, obviously wanting to change the subject.
"It was! My father taught me it!" Naruto boasted. "We're a small island in the middle a major route on the grand line. Everyone is taught to defend themselves. I've been helping fight off pirates for years."
"Good to hear," Smith told him, back to his cheerful demeanor already. "I'd wager you have a bright future ahead of you. Marineford isn't too far out of our way. I'll have you there in no time. Then you can start your official training."
This was turning out to be a near perfect day for Naruto. He only wished he could see the old man's face when he figured out that the chest he'd given Naruto had been the very thing that made his escape possible.
Sarutobi stood watching the ship depart through a pair of binoculars. He'd wondered what kind of Devil Fruit power the boy has uses. Whatever it was, it would certainly aid the boy in his endeavors. And the villagers could hardly blame him—saved for his wife.
After all, how was he supposed to know Naruto would have access to a devil fruit? It's not like he'd given it to the boy or anything, right? Sarutobi chuckled a bit at that, taking his pipe out of his pocket and lighting it.
"Good luck, Naruto," he said out loud. "Make your father proud."
Inu Inu no Mi Model: Kitsune (Mutt Mutt Fruit: Fox Model): The Inu Inu no Mi: Kitsune Model is a Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit which the user has the ability to transform into a fox creature with nine tails. The fruit's powers are tremendously rare, rarer even than Logia Devil Fruit power and his among the most powerful Mutt-Mutt fruits. Like most Zoan-type Devil Fruit users, the user's physical abilities increased, and he is capable of adapting to three forms for combat; human; hybrid, and animal form.
As a Mythical Zoan type, Naruto possesses a special ability that makes his Devil Fruit unique and powerful among normal Zoan Devil Fruits. His Devil Fruit enables him to manifested aura energy called the Aura Force. Naruto activated his Aura Force through emotions, such as anger or circumstances with desire to protect those that were closet to him. Naruto became surrounded by fire-like aura (orange for normal, red when angered, and gold when using Haki). While in this advanced state, his physical abilities boosted up and his fighting skills had become radically effective.
Like most Devil Fruit users, Naruto cannot swim and is vulnerable to Kairoseki. Another weakness of the fruit's powers is when Naruto uses his Aura Force he become extremely tired. The use of Aura energies depend on the strength level of the user. He needs rest before using the aura energies, which reflects the time he use it.
I hate starting over again, but I believe I owe you all several reasons you should all had right to understand. For example, I got several reviews from fan fiction writers that I made some errors or mistake sin my writing. I hadn't got any more reviews after writing chapter 10, so I check each paper and realize did a sloppy mess, and I need to undo not just the chapters, but the whole story.
