Trying To Move On
I was looking for Naruto fanfics where Naruto brings Sasuke back and gets rewarded instead of being punished and Banished, so Naruto gets rewarded and Sasuke gets what he deserves, sorry guys for not uploading often, I have a small inspiration issue, but I hope I can get that fixed soon.
Summary: It's been a long day but Naruto finally returned Sasuke back, Naruto's friends and loved ones congratulated him for completing his first S rank mission, all expect two, Hatake Kakashi and Sakura Haruno, the two people who have scolded Naruto for bringing an injured Sasuke back, he losses fate in his team, later he receives along with the rest of the team who participated on the mission their rewards for bringing the Uchia back, Naruto leaves with Jiraya on a two and a half years training trip, two and a half years later he returns, with lots of changes, Can Kakashi and Sakura ask for forgiveness from Naruto or not?
Pairing Naruto X Sakura
"RASENGAN!" Naruto Shouted, jumping towards Sasuke
"CHIDORI!" Sasuke Shouted, jumping towards Naruto
As both Genin jumped at each other with their strongest attacks, the attacks clashed causing a huge explosion.
Naruto awaken from being knocked a few moments later, just to see Sasuke doing the exact same, but he still wasn't waking up.
"Sas….Sasuke-Teme?" Naruto called, but no answer from Sasuke
"You bastard, your….your lucky that I was sent to retrieve you not kill you, but it looks like I beat you." Naruto said, looking at Sasuke still unconscious on the ground.
"I'll come get you, Sasuke-Teme." Naruto struggled to move but his body was shut down and he could hardly move.
"Dam it, I can't move, well we have to, or probably that Kabuto bastard will come and kill me and capture you." Naruto Said to himself.
Seconds later Kakashi came by and found Sasuke and Naruto laying down there on the ground, he picked Sasuke and Naruto up.
"Kakashi-sensei." Naruto called.
"Naruto what in the world happened to you?" Kakashi asked, looking at Naruto the rolling his eye towards Sasuke.
"I'll explain in the hospital." Naruto answered.
`Well, whatever happened to him, I'm sure it has something to do with Sasuke` Kakashi thought.
Hours later in Konoha Hospital.
Naruto was in a Hospital bed sitting up, he knew the 9 tails would heal him but Tsunadae forced him to stay there and heal, Naruto hated waiting, but he had no choice, if he would get out early, she would take away his Ramen privileges away.
So Naruto had to stay, but she said when he feels better he may leave the Hospital.
Sasuke was in the room at the other side of the hospital, there were four Anbu guards guarding his room, just in case if he escapes again.
"*Knock* *Knock*" Somebody was Knocking the door.
"COME IN!" Naruto shouted, the people who came in were Hinata, Shino, Kiba and Akamaru, Tenten, Lee, Neji, Ino, Shikamaru and Choji.
To Narutos surprise he seen Choji, Neji, Kiba and Akamaru walking, since Tsunadae told him that they will be in the Hospital for a while.
"Kiba, Neji, Choji, Akamaru, I thought Granny Tsunadae said that you will be in a bad condition and that you will have to spend months in the hospital?" Naruto Asked in total shock.
"She did, before she gave us these." Choji said, lifting up his sleeve to show a piece of paper with handwriting on attached to his arm.
"What are those?" Naruto questioned
"Our condition isn't as bad as you think, these are pain killing papers, they only allow you to move for an hour or so, so we will be returning to our rooms soon but we thought that we should visit you and Congratulate you in the mission to retrieve Sasuke." Neji Explained and Answered.
"Thanks Neji, but I would have never get the Teme back if you weren't there to help me." Naruto Said with a thumbs up and a smile on his face.
"Don't call Sasuke-Kun a Teme, you damn Teme." Ino replied aggressively
"Ino." Shikamaru called
Ino looked at Shikamaru with a questioning look.
"Do you understand what we done, just to bring that poor bastard back?" Shikamaru asked
"But that doesn't mean that Naruto can just-" Ino was cut off by Choji
"Ino, Shikamarus right, do you know what happened, we almost died saving Sasuke, the man who left the village, we were assigned to the mission to retrieve him, and look at us compared to him." Choji said, his eyes darkened
"THAT BASTARD IS ONLY UNCONCIOUS WHILE WE'RE BLEEDING OUT ALL OF OUR BLOOD HERE, IF ANYONE IS A BASTARD IT'S HIM!" Kiba shouted violently
"Ki, Kiba, I don't think it is the ti, time for-" Hinata was cut off by Shino
"Hinata, Kiba has the right to talk like this, if Ino doesn't appreciate Naruto's hard work for bringing her fantasy love, then he shouldn't have brought him back, only if I were assigned to the mission I would-" Shino was cut off by Kiba
"Man can you cut that out, I don't think it would make a difference." Kiba said
"I agree Kiba, the sound nins we faced were completely Jounin levelled nins, we hardly took them down, and we would die if we haven't got our back up." Shikamaru nodded in agreement
"Back up, What back up, I thought we were the only ones assigned to the mission?" Naruto Asked in confusion
"Well, well, looks like Blondie's awake." Everyone turned their heads to the door to see Gaara, Kankuro and Temari
"Hey Blondie are you really awake, because last time we met, it seemed your brain was asleep." Kankuro mocked
Temari hits Kankuro on the back of the head.
"OW!" Kankuro Shouted in pain, rubbing the back of his head, "Temari what was that for?" Kankuro Asked
"For mocking an injured cute boy like Naruto, pay your respect for the person who saved Gaara." Temari demanded
Gaara closes the door behind him
"Naruto, how was the mission, did you complete it, we haven't received any word from Kakashi and the Hokage?" Asked Gaara
"The mission was great." Naruto said with a smile
"You mean the mission was a success?" Questioned Shikamaru
"Yeah, it was, I had to fight Sasuke and-" Naruto was cut off from Ino's outburst
"YOU FOUGHT SASUKE-KUN!" Ino shouted in rage
"Yeah, but I had to, it was the only way to bring him back." Naruto replied, which had led everyone into thinking Naruto beat Sasuke, How could he beat Sasuke after all these years in the Academy, how could someone like Naruto beat a noble Clan member, an Elite levelled ninja like Sasuke?
"Wait, wait, wait, are you telling us you beat Sasuke?" Shikamaru Asked in a mixture of shock and surprised
"Yeah, I beat him." Naruto replied
"WHAT!" Ino Shouted in complete Shock, `How can he beat Sasuke-kun, I thought he was weak till I seen him in the Chunin exams when he fought against Neji, now I hear he beat Gaara the Sand Jinchuriki, and at this moment I'm hearing that he beat Sasuke-kun, I guess the Uchia clan isn't that great at all now.` Ino thought in complete surprise
Somehow Ino's temper turned into happiness for Naruto that he managed to beat Sasuke, she didn't know why but she felt happy for him, probably Naruto just couldn't defeat Sasuke and Sasuke had to insult him, it was beginning to bug her and feel sorry for Naruto, but now she is happy for him and now like for what he had did, besides she wasn't upset that Sasuke was unconscious, she knew being a ninja would get you some serious Injuries.
"So you managed to beat the last Uchia, I would say that it is fated for you to never beat a noble clan, but since our fight, I now rethink everything I had said that would be fated, and know that fate can be changed." Neji complemented with a Smirk
"What a drag for Sasuke to get beaten by you." Shikamaru added with his arms behind his back of his head
"But that's not all." Narutos look suddenly changed from happy to sad with his eyes half closed
"Everyone wondered what he meant
"I think the Sasuke we know, …..is just a costume." Naruto said in a dark tone
"Wha…..what do you mean?" Asked Hinata
"What I mean is that we were just seeing the outside of Sasuke this whole time, we never saw the inside, but I seen it and, …..It was dark, very, very dark, like he was like that this whole time." Everyone was stunned about what Naruto was saying but the believed that he was telling the truth, he would never lie to his friends (Also he's a terrible liar, more terrible than Kakashi.).
"The Sasuke I knew was never like this, ….not until I fought him at the Valley at the End, …..I was shocked, I couldn't believe that he would hurt his own comrade." Naruto Added with the same dark tone
Everyone was shocked, more chocked than anything in this world.
"But that's not all." Naruto added
Everyone looks at him with their eyes widened except for Gaara, Temari and Kankuro
"He…. He insulted the old mans death." Naruto said quietly and darkly tone, looking down as if he's about to die, tears formed in his eyes
"You mean he insulted the Third Hokage?" Shino asked in surprise
There was a slight pause that lasted for five seconds until he gave Shino the answer
"Yes." Naruto Answered Darkly and Quietly
Naruto was slapped on the face by Ino
"LIAR!" Ino Screamed, Everyone in shock, Expect for Naruto who had his hand on his right Cheek where Ino slapped him, he knew it was coming but he let it happen, he didn't want it to get worse.
"HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT ABOUT SASUKE-KUN, HE WOULD NEVER EVER INSULT HIS DEATH, HE WAS TREATED WELL AND THE THIRD GAVE HIM A HOME, HE HELPED SASUKE-KUN WITH HIS PROBLEM, WHY WOULD HE-!" Ino was cut off by Shikamarus outburst
"INO SHUT UP!" Shikamaru Shouted at Ino
"Do you think Naruto would lie to us like that, do you think he would say something like that about Sasuke out of Jealousy, do you?" Shikamaru asked in a serious tone
The room fell in silence for a few seconds
"Just as I thought, you can't answer can you?" Shikamaru turned to Naruto who then turned his expression from Shocked to Sad again
"Naruto, you may continue." Shino stared at Naruto with his normal look, which was just his mouth covered and wearing his black dark shaded glasses
"Thanks Shikamaru, Shino, I needed that." Naruto thanked, "Now where I left off, I was in the middle of the battle
Naruto and Sasuke were in the middle of their battle.
"RASENGAN!" Naruto Shouted, charging towards Sasuke
"CHIDORI!" Sasuke Shouted, Charging towards Naruto
Both attacks hit each other causing and explosion
Sauske and Naruto drifted on their feet a few meters away from each other
Sasuke and Naruto were skinning across the lake with their feet intact with the water still
They both stop and return angry looks at each other
"Sasuke, no matter what, I promised Sakura I will bring you back, I will not break that promise no matter what, even if I have to break every bone in your body." Naruto replied hesitantly
"There you go again acting all high and mighty, why don't you just kill me, and the leaf won't have the Sharingan nor will Orochimaru." Sasuke said mockingly
"Because I want to keep my promise to Sakura-Chan, I won't break my promise no matter what." Naruto said, raising his fists at Sasuke, "An why do you want to join that snake bastard anyway, he tried to destroy the leaf, he tried to kill us back at the Chunin Exams, he invaded the village and he killed the old man?" Naruto Asked
"That's right Naruto, he killed the Third Hokage, he was supposed to be stronger than Orochimaru because he was his Sensei, but he died in the hands of Orochimaru, so therefore I will join him." Sasuke replied with an Evil Smirk on his face
Naruto than got a confused look, why would Sasuke join this bastard, he killed the Third Hokage, doesn't Sasuke care that Orochimaru killed The Third Hokage, that he killed the one man who watched over Naruto and Sasuke through the past thirteen years of their lives, Doesn't he care?
"Because if someone like Orochimaru could kill someone like his Sensei that easily then he could teach me to kill my brother and restore the Uchia clan." Sasuke added
"But he killed the old man." Naruto protested
"I don't care." Sasuke replied which led Naruto's mind from confusion to anger, he still had his confused face on, "If the third died, then that's because he was weak, he knew Orochimaru had a few forbidden Jutsu's and he was only willing to use the Jutsu's the leaf has given him, I realise that the leaf is a weak village, I can't believe my clan stayed in the leaf, I would've left the village in search for a stronger and more respectable place, If the third died than he deserved it, we can't have a weak Hokage, now would we Naruto?" Sasuke Asked mockingly
Naruto's arms fell and just stood there, with his eyes darkened and his head looking down to the ground, he knew what the third did and appreciated him for that, he watched over the leaf and took care of all the Shinobi and Villagers like he was a father and they were the sons and daughters, he remembered how he felt at the Funereal, Sad, Angry, Emotionless, probably these were the things Sasuke faced when his clan had died by the hands of his brother.
"You…." Naruto said, clenching his fists hard
Sasuke just stood there in his fighting position, smirking evilly
"You, Damn." Naruto Said
Suddenly Naruto's head shot up and his eyes were red, like a fox's eyes they were
"BASTARD!" Naruto was in pure rage from the comment Sasuke made about the Third Hokage
"HOW DARE YOU SAY THAT ABOUT THE OLD MAN, HE WATCHED OVER YOU,, GAVE YOU A HOME AND HE HELPED YOU WITH YOUR CLAN PROBLEMS, NOW YOUR JUST GOANNA INSULT HIS GRAVE, SPIT AT IT LIKE IT'S NOTHING!" Naruto Shouted in pure rage, all Sasuke could do was Chuckle from Naruto's outburst like some kind of joke
"After all he did for the village and you, you disrespect him, I will injure you so hard that even Granny Tsunadae can't heal you." Naruto threatened
Soon Sasuke and Naruto charged at each other again
Sasuke's curse mark was activated
"CHIDORI!" Sasuke shouted, charging towards Naruto
"RASENGAN!" Naruto Shouted, charging towards Sasuke
Soon both attack were about to hit and
An explosion caused by the two attacks covered Naruto and Sasuke in a small flash of the explosion
FLASH BACK ENDS
After Naruto told the story Ino, Tentenand Hinata had both of their hands on their mouths, they had a few tears coming from their eyes
Kiba, Neji, Lee, Shikamaru, Akamaru and Choji clenched their fists and gritted their teeth in anger
Shino was Angry himself, it may not look like it but he was clenching his fists aswell
Kankuro, Temari and Gaara didn't know about the Third Hokage, but they just left the others alone, seeing how they were either sad or furious about what Sasuke had said
Naruto still remembered every word Sasuke gave him, he wished he had never heard them, he hated hearing those words in his mind, they just kept playing and playing, over again and again.
"We should leave now, we need to give Naruto some time." Shikamaru turned to the door and opened it, everyone left except for Gaara who wanted to come out last
"Naruto." Gaara called
Naruto looked at Gaara
"I'm very sorry about all of this." Gaara apologised
"There's no need for apologises Gaara, I'm fine, just need rest." Naruto waved his hand
Gaara closed the door and left, but everyone didn't go far, they decided to wait for Naruto outside to hear and see how he will be doing, Gai, Asuma and Kurenai were there waiting with their teams, they thought exactly as what their Genins and Chunin did about Naruto, they thought that the mission was a success and that Naruto should be rewarded for completing and S rank mission at such a young age.
Moments later Jiraya, the legendary toad Sanin came through the door, surprisingly he uses a door sometimes
"Hi brat, how are you doing?" Jiraya asked, closing the door behind him
"Great Pervy sage." Naruto Replied Happily
"Don't call me that." Jiraya replied with a pissed off look, Jiraya took a seat next to Naruto's bed, "Listen kid, Tsunadae and the council have decided what to do about this little fiasco, it took time but Tsunadae finally managed to get the council to reward you and your team for bringing the Last Uchia back." Jiraya explained
In the Council room, there was a huge fuss, some member said that they wanted to punish the last Uchia for leaving and joining up with Orochimaru, the other half as always, wanted to find an excuse for Sasuke, so that he will not be punished, but the so called "Demon Brat" will, however, Tsunadae refused to punish Naruto for bringing Sasuke back
"YOU WILL PUNISH THAT DEMON BRAT FOR INJURING SASUKE UCHIA!" Demanded Danzo
"Listen to yourself Danzo, you are in no position to boss me around, I already have decided what's goanna happen, I will move the Retrieval team from Gennin to Chunin, including your so called Demon Brat." Tsunadae explained
"But that demon almost destroyed the village, we cannot allow it to advance any further, or it will be a disaster, I say we kill him or banish him." Danzo suggested, but he received glares from the Council
"Sit down Danzo, that demon brat you pronounce it saved my dead brothers son from hatred, he also saved this village from the one tailed beast and managed to get a treaty with the wave, if he was older, we would reward him the title of Hokage for doing great deeds to our village." Hiashi Explained
"And also he saved my daughter's life and encouraged her to get a little bit stronger, if he gets punished I will not stand for it." A Council woman with pink hair Shouted
"Mrs Haruno, you remember what happened to your husband, he died fighting the nine tails." Danzo reminded her
"No he did not kill my husband, that was the nine tails, I never held a grudge against him since I knew the difference of a container and what it contains." Mrs Haruno Replied
"We're not here to discuss about Naruto Uzumaki, we're here to discuss about Sasuke Uchia's punishment for his crimes against the leaf, as I hear the reports from Naruto, him and his team were attacked by five S class sound nins, for a couple of Genin and one Chunin, it is surprising that they survived a long fight against them, the mission would have been a complete failure if Gaara of the sand hasn't showed up with his brother and sister." Tsunadae Explained
"You mean the sand demon who might turn against us soon." Danzo mocked with a smirk
"That "Sand Demon" has proven himself that he no longer has a grudge against the leaf, if he and his siblings haven't showed up in time, they would have never get to Sasuke in time." Tsunadae continued, "And because they killed the five Sound nins, Orochimaru's strength had significantly decreased and his plan to take Sasuke was a failure aswell." Tsunadae finished
"But if the demon brat wasn't getting stronger-"Danzo was cut off by Hiashi
"It wouldn't matter if Naruto uzumaki was getting stronger, if it were any other Genin then Sasuke would have left anyway." Hiashi stared at Danzo with killing intent
"Thanks Hiashi." Tsunadae thanked, "Then it's settled then, we will severely punish Sasuke Uchia and reward Naruto and the Retrieval team for their efforts." Tsunadae finished, "We will continue in a few hours." Tsunadae sat up and walked to Jiraya, who was leaning beside the wall the whole time, "Jiraya, Naruto is hereby announced as Successor of Hokage and announced as your apprentice." Tsunadae told Jiraya, "And I think it's time to release his heritage and his true name to the village." Tsunadae gave Jiraya a tough stare
"I will take him as my student, but I need to keep my spying job, so I will leave the leaf with him." Jiraya informed
"How long?" Tsunadae Asked
"Two and a half years." Jiraya Answered
Tsunadae didn't want Naruto gone for two and a half years away from the village, but she had no choice, for Naruto to become Hokage, he needs training from a Sanin, Tsunadae couldn't train him because she picked Sakura as her apprentice, Orochimaru was trying to kill Naruto In the forest of death and at the field where Tsunadae and Jiraya fought Orochimaru, so it all leads to Jiraya to take Naruto in, she re thinks and realises that, It's just two and a half years, two and a half years is nothing, It will be like your gone for two and a half days or months.
"Alright, you may take him in two days." Tsunadae told Jiraya
"Why two?" Jiraya Asked Jiraya
"It will take me a day to release his family's titles to him and another day to spend all of his time in Konoha before he leaves." Tsunadae explained
"Alright, two days it is." With that said, Jiraya stood up and walked towards the doors of the council room
FLASH BACK ENDS
"Kid, I have to tell you something, something very, very important." Jiraya gave a serious stare
"Wha…. What do you mean Pervy Sage?" Naruto Asked, in a confused tone
Ignoring "Pervy Sage" Jiraya told Naruto about his Family and his mother and father
"Kid, your name isn't Naruto Uzumaki, It's Naruto Uzumaki Namikaze, you're the last of the Namikaze's and the few remaining Uzumaki's, your father was the fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, and your mother was Kushina Uzumaki." Jiraya Explained
Naruto was speechless, he only spent a few months with Jiraya since the Chunin exams and now he's hearing about his clan.
"If you don't know who the Namikazes are, … they were the nation's greatest clan, they possessed a bloodline, which you have at the moment." Naruto just sat there confused, he couldn't believe it, he has a blood line and his father was the greatest out of the five Hokages
"Bloo…. Bloodline, what Bloodline?" Naruto Asked Confusingly
"Your Bloodline is the king of bloodlines, called the Kopi Ketto (Note: Kopi Ketto in English means the Copy Bloodline.), It's like the Sharingan, it copies other bloodlines, with just one stare you could copy a bloodline in just a few seconds, I heard about your battle with the one called Haku." Jiraya Explained and Reminded
"Yeah, but what does Haku have to do with this?" Naruto Asked Confusingly
"Haku died on the bridge." Jiraya was about to explain so he stood up, "You see Naruto, I was the Sensei of the Fourth Hokage, he explained to me how it works, you see, there's and Aura around you, with a range of one meter, when you took out Haku using the nine tails Chakra, you accidently copied his bloodline, how I know this when you were Unconscious you used Haku's bloodline, when you used the nine tails Chakra, it increased the range of your Aura to five meters." Jiraya Explained
Naruto never knew he had a bloodline, he remembered Haku, but he doesn't remember using his bloodline, probably the Kyuubi remembers
"Probably you don't remember, I'll explain what happened." With that Jiraya started telling the story about Naruto activating his bloodline
It was when Gamakichi, the boss Toad put Naruto down on the ground with his tongue and then disappeared
The Boss Toad disappeared
"Looks like the kid is tired." As Jiraya walked towards Naruto, ready to pick him up, his hand was slapped by Naruto, who then got up, flowing with red Chakra and his red, he had fox eyes
"What the-" Jiraya was cut off when Naruto jumped at him, Jiraya dodged Naruto by standing to the left, Naruto growled at Jiraya for a second then punched the ground using Haku's mirror bloodline, ice mirrors then rose from the ground to circle Jiraya, he hoped to one mirror and another, "It can't be-" Jiraya said in complete surprise, Naruto took his head out one of the mirrors, he then lost Consciousness due to Chakra exhaustion and fell to the ground, the mirrors then Shattered into a thousand pieces
"Wha…..What was that." Jiraya said in complete Shock
FLASH BACK ENDS
"That's what happened, and if you don't want that to happen again, then you will have to get your Demon Chakra under control, I know a friend in The Village Hidden In The Clouds, I can't teach you how to control the nine tails but he can, he possess the eight tails." Jiraya Explained
"And who is he?" Naruto Asked
"He is Killer Bee, and one of my best buyers for my "Make out" series, he is one of the nine tailed Jinchurikis." Jiraya Answered
"Great another pervert, wait you said eight tails Jinchuriki, I thought me and Gaara were the only ones?" Naruto was now confused, first Gaara, and now Killer Bee
"No not really, there are more Jinchurikis than you three, there are nine of them, some are respected and some are disrespected by people." Jiraya Answered
"Wow." Naruto was confused
"Naruto, in two days we will be leaving for two and a half years, so I say pack up now and we will be leaving in two days." With that said Jiraya left the room, he opened the door to see Tsunadae, and lets her in, Jiraya walks out and Tsunadae walks in, Jiraya closes the door behind him
"Granny Tsunadae." Naruto called in surprise
"Don't call me that brat." Tsunadae took a seat next to Naruto, "Naruto, the council and the village are now paying their respects to you, they are glad that you brought Sasuke back, and the entire village is happy for you." Tsunadae informed
"Thanks Granny, hey could you do me a favour?" Naruto Asked
"What?" Tsunadae asked
"Will you let Sakura-Chan be your Apprentice, I know she's strong but she doesn't know much fighting skill, and that could get her killed, promise me that no matter what you will teach her, she doesn't know much of the ninja world." Naruto answered and Explained
"Sure Brat, I will take your girlfriend off of your hands and teach her, I am also goanna put one medic nin in each team to reduce casualties." Tsunadae Replied, getting off of the chair and turning to the door, "Before I leave, I want you to know something, you are now free to leave the hospital either now or later." Tsunadae then left the room, Naruto couldn't help but smile that he's finally free to leave the room
Second later, Naruto heard knocks on his door
"Come in!" Naruto Called
The door opened to reveal Kakashi and Sakura coming in, Kakashi walked towards Naruto while Sakura was closing the door, Sakura closed the door but held on the knob like her life depended on it, she looked down, her eyes darkened, Kakashi's right eye was half closed, showing disappointment towards Naruto, what could Kakashi be disappointed for, he brought Sasuke back, he completed the mission, the sand Shinobi and leaf Shinobi didn't die, he ruined Orochimaru's plans, what could he be disappointed at?
Naruto just seemed a little confused but puts his smile on, he had a huge smirk on his face and looked at Kakashi, "Kakashi-Sensei, can you believe what happened?" Naruto Asked, "I managed to complete my first S rank mission, and all because of Pervy Sage and your teachings." Naruto gave a huge smile after that, but soon he felt more disappointment coming from Kakashi, like a wave is hitting him, his smile suddenly turned into a confused look, "What's wrong?" Naruto Asked
When Sakura heard Naruto say "What's wrong?", she couldn't keep her rage in any more, she let's go of the Knob and walk towards Naruto with her fists clenching hard
Naruto notices this quickly and says "Sa….Sakura-Chan?" Naruto Asked confusingly
Her fist then suddenly turned into a flat hand, which she then slapped Naruto hard on the face, on the right cheek
Sakura Slaps Naruto
Naruto puts his hand on his right cheek
Outside everyone could hear what was happening
"Sakura-Chan, why?" Naruto Asked
"Why?" Sakura said in a dark tone
"WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO SASUKE-KUN!" Sakura Screamed in rage
Naruto was confused than ever, he thought she would be happy that he completed a tough mission and brought Sasuke back, but instead of happiness, he got rage, lots and lots of rage, Kakashi didn't do anything to stop her, he just lets her scream at him, after all that he has done
"But Sakura-Chan-" Naruto Said, but Sakura cut him off
"Don't "Sakura-Chan" me, you injured Sasuke-kun severely, he has a few broken bones, Chakra Exhaustion and a broken arm, I said bring Sasuke-kun back, not injure him till he dies." Sakura said in a rage tone
"Kakashi-Sensei, tell Sakura-Chan I had no choice, he would never listen to reason, so I had to do what I did." Naruto begged
But Kakashi just stood there until he said, "Naruto.", Naruto looked up at his Sensei, all confused and upset, 1. He was upset that Kakashi did not help him to reason with Sakura that he had no choice, 2. He was confused, why would his Team mate and Sensei be mad at him, he brought Sasuke back didn't he, he did everything he could and it all just led to Kakashi and Sakura scolding him?
"Sakura has a point, why would you injure Sasuke critically, you know Sasuke Is our team mate, remember what I said "Those who betray the rules are scum, but those who betray their friends are worse than scum", it was our first lesson and I thought you would learn it by now." Naruto was speechless, he did what he had to do, and now he is being scolded for returning Sasuke
"But Kakashi-Sensei, I did learn that lesson but I'm not the one who betrayed my friends, Sasuke-Teme was, he knocked Sakura-Chan out and ran off, all I did was stop him and bring him back, I'll admit I didn't bring him back because my was paralyzed for a few hours and you were the one who brought me and Sasuke-Teme back but I did stop him." Naruto Protested
"But Naruto, there's more ways to stop someone then attack them, like talking, when will you ever get that in your head that fighting doesn't always solve everything." Naruto was about to say something until Sakura stopped him
"Why would you injure Sasuke-Kun badly, you promised me you would bring him back, why would you break my promise you idiot." Sakura added
Naruto turned to Kakashi, "Ka…Kakashi-Sensei-?" Naruto was cut off when Kakashi spoke
"Naruto, Sakura has a point, even though the council won't punish you I will, I will assign you out of team seven, you are to stay away from Sasuke and Sakura and me, away from team 7 for the next four months, this is the punishment for injuring Sasuke and breaking a comrades promise." Kakashi finished
"YEAH, SO STAY AWAY FROM SASUKE-KUN AND I, YOU GOT THAT!" Sakura Shouted
Naruto turned back to Sakura "Sakura-Chan-" Naruto was cut off by Sakura
"I SAID DON'T CALL ME SAKURA-CHAN, I WILL BE NOT YOUR SAKURA-CHAN BUT SASUKE-KUN'S SAKURA-CHAN, WHY WOULD I LOVE A MONSTER LIKE YOU!" Naruto's feelings change from sadness to rage
"IF I WOULD LOVE YOU, IT'S LIKE LOVING A DEMON, YOU UNGRATEFUL-!" Sakura was cut off by Naruto's outburst
"SAKURA, SHUT THE HELL UP!" Naruto Shouted
Sakura then became quiet, her anger gone and her rage, she calmed down, but was completely shocked that Naruto did not call her "Sakura-Chan", she realised what she said, but still did not care, she still had Sasuke injured in her mind
"Naruto, don't raise your voice so loud." Kakashi ordered Bossley
"YOU SHUT UP ASWELL HATAKE!" Kakashi was surprised that he did not address him as "Kakashi-Sensei", "I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU TWO ARE DOING BUT IF YOU HAVN'T NOTICED YOUR FAVOURITE STUDENT AND PRCIOUS SASUKE-KUN WAS THE ONE WHO INJURED ME HEAVILY, I DID TALK TO HIM BUT HE REFUSED TO LISTEN AND ATTACKED ME, I HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO INJURE HIM TO PUT HIM UNCONCIOUS, IF YOU HADN'T NOTICED I RUINED THE SNAKE BASTARDS PLANES WITH SASUKE-TEME AND SAVE THE TEME BEFORE OROCHIMARU COULD GET HIS HANDS ON HIM!" Naruto Screamed, making Kakashi and Sakura silent
"No you're lying, Sasuke-kun would never do that to you, he even almost died in The Land Of Waves trying to protect you from Haku, why would he try and kill you." Sakura Replied, with a few tears in her eyes
"Protect me, that's what he did before he met his brother again." Which led Kakashi starring at Naruto wide eyed at him, he couldn't believe that Naruto found out that guy who was after him was Itatchi
"Naruto, what makes you think that the Akatuski member you met is Sasuke's brother?" Kakashi Asked
"BECAUSE SASUKE TOLD ME!" Naruto Shouted, to make sure Kakashi understands, Kakashi couldn't believe that Sasuke would tell Naruto about his brother, "And that's not all." Naruto added, giving Kakashi and Sakura a confused look, "He said more, even about why he protected me against Haku." With that Said Naruto explained
After the explosion, Naruto and Sasuke both flew meters away from each other, landing on the ground
"YOU DOBE, YOU THINK YOU CAN BEAT ME, ONCE I'M DONE WITH YOU, I WILL EITHER KILL YOU OR JUST GO OFF TO OROCHIMARU!" Sasuke Shouted in rage
"Sa…..Sasuke, you wouldn't kill me… wha….. what about all those times we had together as a team, we had fun, we saved each other and we protected each other, just like when you protected me against Haku by taking the hit for me." Naruto reminded Sasuke with a tough look
"Protected you and took the hit so that your death would not lead to wasting my time, if you died I would have to wait till the Council would find you a suitable replacement, and I'm not sure that the replacement would be good or bad, If the replacement was stupid or useless, the replacement would die, making me wait again, and the same thing happen again, again and again, all because of your stupid death, plus I'm an Uchia, I can survive anything, I don't know why I was put in a team, being by myself would be great with no teammates, but seems like Kakashi-Sensei tried to help me by teaching me by himself instead of you or Sakura, do you think your even worth his time, but when I learned you were with Jiraya, that's when I knew you would get stronger than me and Kakashi-Sensei combined with a Sannins help, Orochimaru would provide me all the strength and Jutsus to get stronger." Sasuke finished
Naruto just stayed there, listening what Sasuke just said, he remembered those words in his head echoing again and again
"SO YOU NEVER CARED FOR ME AND SAKURA AT ALL, JUST YOURSELF AND YOUR REVENGE, SAKURA LOVES YOU AND WOULD RISK EVERTHING TO SAVE YOU, AS WELL AS OUR FRIENDS, THEY WOULD DIE FOR YOU, I WOULD DIE FOR YOU AND YOU SPIT US AT THE FACE JUST LIKE THAT, YOU WILL NEVER GET YOUR REVENGE, I'LL MAKE SURE YOU RETURN TO THE VILLAGE AND NEVER GET YOUR REVENGE!" Naruto Shouted
Then Sasuke and Naruto Charged at each other
"AHHHHHHH!" Both boys screamed before punching each other in the face at the same time
FLASH BACK ENDS
Sakura and Kakashi just stood there Shocked, but denied what Naruto said was true
"YOUR LYING, SASUKE-KUN WOULD NEVER SAY THAT, YOUR JUST JEALOUS THAT I LOVE SASUKE-KUN INSTEAD OF YOU, YOU IDIOT!" Sakura Screamed in Sadness, tears streaming from her eyes
"YEAH RIGHT, I'M JEALOUS OF SASUKE, BUT I WOULD ALWAYS HELP YOU TO LOVE SASUKE, AFTER WE GRADUATED YOU WERE CRYING ON A BENCH SO I RAN TO SASUKE, EVEN HE EXPLAINED TO ME WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT ME, I STILL LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT!" Naruto Shouted in rage, Sakura stopped crying, how could Naruto still love her after what she said about him having no parents
"You…. You know?" Sakura had a Questioning look on her face
"Yes I do know, Sasuke told me how you said that I'm annoying because I have no parents, you don't understand the feeling to have being alone in your life, like people treat you like you're not even human but a demon, but you would never notice that because you were focusing on one person, Sasuke, I suffered worse than that Teme, I was beaten, mocked and denied of everything, I hardly got a place to live, till the old man found me a apartment to live in, but that's all I have, nothing else." Naruto Stated
Naruto ran towards Sasuke in rage of him making Sakura cry
"SASUKE-TEME!" Naruto Shouted in rage
Sasuke turned around to see Naruto running towards him
"Oh, hey dobe." Sasuke greeted
"Don't "Hey dobe" me Teme, what the hell did you do to Sakura-Chan, she's crying on a bench, she loves you, you know, she would die for you, and you treat her like this." Naruto Said in rage
"If you hadn't noticed all I said to her that she doesn't understand of being alone." Sasuke replied
Naruto's expression turned from anger to confusion and sadness, his eyes widened in confusion, "Wha…what do you mean Teme?" Naruto Asked in confusion
"You don't know what she said about you Naruto, she said that your annoying because you don't have parents, parents to never scold you or tell you off, she said that she feels sorry that you don't have parents to tell you off, but I told her it's just not like that, It's about love, you and I know that feeling about being alone, you may not had any parents in the beginning but I did, and I lost them, I started to feel the pain of being alone, I understood what you feel and it hurts, pain that is worse than what Sakura feels no." Sasuke stated, leaving Naruto speechless and upset about what Sakura said
"So how do you feel about her Naruto?" Sasuke asked
"….." Naruto didn't reply yet, "I'm upset." Naruto Said in a quiet tone, "BUT I STILL LOVE HER!" Naruto Shouted
"But she hurts you." Sasuke Stated
"I don't care what Sakura-Chan thinks of me or how she thinks of me, I will love her the day I day, no matter what she says I will always love Sakura-Chan
FLASH BACK ENDS
"But now that I think of it, I think I was a fool, loving someone who hates me, disrespects me and thinks I'm annoying because I don't have parents, guess what Sakura, I don't love you any more, you have officially lost the one who loved you for the way you are." Sakura couldn't help but feel a little bit happy that Naruto will finally leave her alone, but she felt something inside of her, she feels as if someone had just died in her life
"AND THERES YOU KAKASHI-SENSIE, YOU FAVOURED SASUKE BECAUSE ME AND SAKURA ARE WEAK, YOU MUST HAVE PROMISED AN UCHIA TO TRAIN SASUKE INSTEAD OF YOUR OTHER STUDENTS!" Naruto Complained
"Naruto, that's not true, I never favoured anyone, I trained Sasuke because of his match with Gaara, you seen how strong he was when he defeated Lee, I taught Sasuke the Chidori to break the sands shell." Kakashi Explained, his expression turned back to his normal calm look, with his hands in his pockets
"Which Sasuke failed, and I'm the one who defeated Gaara, not the Teme, even if the village said that I were the one who defeated Gaara, you still believed it was Sasuke-Teme, and would give the credit to him." Naruto Replied
"Naruto, I didn't know you defeated Gaara till I found out later that week, I realised my mistakes, but I taught Sasuke because of the Sharingan, It's the most important weapon in the village, also Sasuke is like me, which worries me because in the past I did a few wrong things which I wish would have never happened." Kakashi replied
"So you taught Sasuke-Teme instead of me or Sakura because he's like you, he has the Sharingan, you know what, all you ever say that Sasuke is important because of the Sharingan." Naruto Stated
"Naruto, the Sharingan is one of the most strongest bloodlines, we need the Sharingan so that other villages won't take it to rise to power, and to protect our village." Kakashi Explained
"Look at Team 8, they have Hinata, and team Gai has Neji, Team 10 has Ino and Shikamaru, but you don't see their sensies treating them like you do with Sasuke-Teme, teams 8 and Gai have the Byakugan which is important to the village aswell, but you don't see them training Hinata and Neji only, they train Kiba, Akamaru, Shino, Tenten and Lee aswell, equally, Shikamaru has brains and Ino has her mind Jutsu bloodline, but Team 10 doesn't only concentrate on those two only, they also help Choji to train to get stronger aswell, so why are you different from the other Sensies?" Naruto Asked Angrily, Naruto was right, Hinata and Neji has the Byakugan, Shikamaru has brains of a combat expert, Ino has her mind Jutsu bloodline, but Teams 8, Gai and 10 don't treat them like Kakashi treats Sasuke
"Why do you two treat me like the villagers did, like I'm nothing but a Demon, even though I did nothing wrong, I try to help and show them what I'm like, and now they respect me, they now treat me like I'm special, now they happy faces towards me, I no longer have the face of hatred any more, I'm now treated properly, but you two still treat me the same." Naruto Stated
"Well guess what." Naruto Said in a Angry tone, "I QUIT TEAM 7, I AM NO LONGER YOUR STUDENT, I AM NO LONGER YOUR TEAM MATE, I HAVE A NEW SENSIE, AND I AM GOING TO GET THE RESPECT THAT I DESERVE FROM HIM!" Naruto Shouted, Leaving Kakashi and Sakura Speechless
Naruto stands on his bed and opens a window next to him, "Naruto, where are you going?" Kakashi Asked, worried about his former Student
"To the hot springs, hopefully Pervy Sage is there." Naruto Answered
"Now, now Naruto, you're not allowed to leave this room." Naruto didn't listen, instead he puts one leg on the window, about to jump off, "That wasn't a request, that was an order." Kakashi sounds a little obeying tone
"Sorry, but I take orders from Chunins or Jounins during missions or at a time of crisis, I no longer take orders remember, I am not your student any more, Pervy Sage is, I take orders from him now." And with that Naruto jumped off, "Goodbye Hatake and Haruno." Naruto Said, before jumping off, he jumped off and started hopping towards to the hot springs in hope of finding Jiraya
Kakashi leaves the room, disappointed in Naruto, Sakura just stayed in the room, speechless and feeling guilty of what she said to Naruto, but still a little bit mad at him for shouting at her and hurting her Sasuke-Kun, but still she shouldn't say that, she hears footsteps of people coming in the room, she turns back to see the Konoha nine coming in, Neji closes the door behind them
"What?" Sakura Asked
Everyone just stared at her for a second, then Shikamaru spoke up, "Sakura, why?" Shikamaru Asked in his calm voice, Sakura was confused about his question, "Why would you do that to Naruto, he had no choice, beating Sasuke in a unconscious state was the only thing he could do, you heard what he said, he had no choice." Shikamaru added
Sakura was explaining, "Because…, I don't know why, but he hurt Sasuke-Kun." Sakura replied, looking at the ground in shame
"That's not an answer…., Sasuke left the village on his own will, we risked our lives to save him, Neji, Kiba, Akamaru and Choji almost died saving Sasuke, Naruto almost did too, we read the medical reports about Naruto." Shikamaru Stated
"What reports?" Sakura Asked, confusingly
"Are you really that stupid forehead?" Ino Asked, mockingly
"Naruto has suffered a Chidori to the chest, multiple Kunai stabs, and Chakra Exhaustion, Sasuke only suffered a broken arm, few broken bones, and his Chakra coils damaged a little." Shikamaru Explained, "Sasuke injuries were not threating at all, ….. but Narutos injuries were, we thought he was goanna die, it was a miracle that he was still breathing, …. If any of us were there, we would have died the first couple of minutes fighting Sasuke." Shikamaru added
"THAT ASSHOLE ALMOST KILLED NARUTO AND WAS ABOUT TO LET US DIE, OUR LIVES WERE AT RISK TO SAVE THAT BASTARD!" Kiba Shouted in Anger, "AKAMARU IS RIGHT NOW BEING TREATED, I DON'T KNOW IF HE'LL WALK AGAIN!" Kiba Added, Sakura was now more Guilty than ever, first Sasuke tried to kill Naruto, and let the others die, if Naruto never injured Sasuke, he would've killed Naruto, and let the rookies die
"B…. but it's that curse mark, … It's controlling Sasuke-kun, ….. he never would leave the leaf on his own will?" Sakura stated confusingly
"Can you ever understand, bill board brow, Sasuke did leave, and he almost got two of my teammates killed and yours, if I were you I'd be thanking Naruto for what he did and how he saved Sasuke from going to Orochimaru, I would go on a date with Naruto If I were you as a reward." Ino Said, surprisingly she didn't add "-Kun" at the end of Sasuke
"Come on Ino, you hate Naruto aswell, so why would I go out on a date with that idiot?" Sakura Asked Angrily
"Probably because he loves you and probably our love for Sasuke is nothing more than a lie." Ino Replied
"Don't you dare, say that my love for Sasuke-Kun is a lie!" Sakura Replied Angrily
"So you still call him Sasuke-Kun even though he almost killed Naruto and knocked you out, leaving you on a bench for a night, you still love him, after we almost died for him, I think you should be mad at him, everyone in the village treated him like he was Hokage and I think it's time for him to be punished!" Neji Replied Angrily
"What do you mean punished?" Sakura Asked, worried for Sasuke
"Tsunadae and the council decided the punishment of Sasuke Uchia, it's about time we punish him, he always was getting away with everything, so it's time to show that it doesn't matter who you are or what you are, you can't do anything you want in the village." Shikamaru Explained
"But Sasuke-Kun can't be punished, he hasn't done anything wrong." Sakura Said, in worry for Sasuke still
"Anything wrong, he left, abandoned us and tried to join up with the same man who killed the Third Hokage, he should be executed!" Kiba replied Angrily
"But the elders won't allow him to die, so instead, he's being sent to blood prison, his Chakra and Sharingan sealed, stripped of rank of Konoha Shinobi, and classified as a triple S rank missing nin in case he escapes." Shikamaru explained, which made Sakura scared, she knew what blood prison was, she knew that it was the ninja world's most toughest and un- escapable prison, there had been reports of hundreds of sailed attempts to escape, she knew what type of prisoners were there, all of them were triple S rank Shinobi from other villages
"Blo…. Blood Prison?" Sakura Said, in a terrified tone
"Yes, the Anbu will take Sasuke to Blood prison in two weeks, so if you have anything to say to Sasuke before he leaves, I suggest you to say it before it's too late, aw man, what a drag." Shikamaru replied, with that said, the Genins and Chunin walked out, Sakura walked out of the room in shame, outside she saw Gaara, Temari and Kankuro standing, leaning on the wall, she knew why they were upset, because of what she said to Naruto
"Well, well, looks like girlie here doesn't respect what we did for her boyfriend." Kankuro mocked
"You know, I don't know why you would hate a man like Blondie, he's nice and fun, not boring or emo like your criminal boyfriend." Temari added
"But Sasuke-Kun is stronger than Naruto, he defeated Gaara and-" Sakura was cut off by Gaara
"No." Gaara said, "The Uchia never beaten me, I beaten him, he never could lay a finger on me, you've seen him, I was close to killing him, but Naruto stopped me and saved him, I was in full power, but defeated by Naruto, I lost to Naruto, I was defeated by Naruto, I… learned from Naruto." Gaara Explained
With that said Gaara and the siblings left
Everyone left a Guilty, Upset and Confused Sakura behind
