Son of the Assassin
So this is a fanfic with both Naruto and Assassin's Creed mixed in. This chapter will be nothing but an introduction to what is going on.
A young blonde boy with blue eyes and whisker marks ran through the empty streets of Konoha, the only light he has is form the moon. He wore a grey shirt and blue pants. A group of adults ran behind him waving weapons ranging from blunt to bladed. The crowd shouted curses to the young boy as he turned down an alley. The boy ran until he ran into a dead end. He turned around to see that the crowd blocked off his exit.
The crowd sneered at him as the boy tried to crawl up to protect himself. They did say anything as they started to beat on the boy, creating bruises and deep cuts. The boy cried out in pain but the crowd didn't stop.
A man walked through the village coming from his talk with the Hokage about the employment of his group's skills. He had tanned skin and brown skin. His brown hair was tied back into a small ponytail with a few strands hanging in front of his left ear and had various ornaments in it. He stood around 6'3'' with broad shoulders and high cheekbones. He wore a white hooded outfit with blue on the inside, blue pants, and brown leather shoes that went past his knees. Around his waist was a red band with a hood symbol on it. He had a brown strand of leather wrapped around his biceps and had brown bracers on his wrist. On his chest, he had a strap that held the bow on his and a quiver full of arrows.
He was walking when he heard someone scream. He narrowed his eyes and climbed up a building. He freeran till he got to where the scream came from. He saw a group of people beating on something. He wondered what it was. He lost control of his anger when he saw that it was a young boy around 3.
He dropped down on two of them in the middle. Two steel blades around a half foot extended out of the bracers on his wrists. The blades went into the backs of the victims and into their hearts, killing them. The crowd dispersed around the man. The man stood up and the blades went back into the bracers. One of them came forward and stepped in front of the man's face and said, "Who the hell do you think you are. You better get out of her before you regret it. The demon isn't worth it."
The man didn't reply. He only flexed his wrist making the blade on his right wrist appear again. He then thrust the blade into the man's chin making it go into his brain. The blade disappeared again and the dead person fell to the ground. The man then reached under his jacket and drew a small double edge dagger and a strange ax. It was small and the blade was shaped like the symbol on the man's waistband. On the handle were markings and two feathers were wrapped onto it.
"You people are the true demons," He said in a smooth voice and anger in his tone. "You beat a young boy that is unable to defend himself and call him a demon." He looked up, showing rage in his eyes. "Come at me and I will kill you with hesitation." The crowd was scared and ran away.
The man put up his weapons and walked to the boy. "Are you alright?" HE asked with a soft tone. The boy nodded and asked, "Who are you and why did you help me?" "I helped you because it is unjust to attack a young boy for no reason, and my name is Ratonhnhaké:ton." The boy looked confused at his name, not knowing how to pronounce it. The man laughed and said, "You can call me Connor."
The boy nodded and said, "My name is Naruto. How did you do that?" "I trained," Connor said. Connor then turned around and said, "Climb on young on." Naruto nodded and did that. Connor stood up with Naruto on his back. "Where are we going, Connor?" Naruto asked. "To see the Hokage to tell him about your treatment." Naruto nodded.
Hiruzen Sarutobi, Sandaime Hokage and The Professor of Shinobi, was getting ready to leave. He was an old man with light skin and grey hair. His face was gaunter, and he had wrinkles and liver spots of old age. He initially had three line running under each eye reaching his cheeks. He wore the customary hat and haori with a red, full-length kimono that is tied using a white sash.
A K=knock was heard at his door. He sighed and said, "Come in." The door open to show Connor, the man he was just talking to a few minutes ago. "Connor, I thought you went back to your group to tell them about my acceptance of them?" He asked. "I was going back when I heard a scream I alley. I checked it out to see a group of people attacking this boy." He turned to show Naruto on his back. He put Naruto down and walked up to the old man and said with anger in his tone, "If this is how you allow your adults to treat children, then the agreement about us is void. I refuse to allow my Brotherhood to be associated with such scum."
Hiruzen sighed and said, "I'm sorry about the actions of the civilians. 4 years ago, we were attacked by the Kyuubi. We lost our Yondaime Hokage to the beast when he killed it. The civilians still hold hatred and Naruto, due to the whiskers on his face, was, unfortunately, the outlet of their hate. I tried my best to quell it, but there's only so much an old man like me can do."
Connor narrowed his eyes and asked, "Naruto, can you wait outside for a bit?" Naruto nodded and walked out closing the door behind him. Connor looked at the old man and said, "You should know better than to try and lie to someone of my profession, Hokage." Hiruzen wasn't surprised and said, "I'm sorry Connor, but Naruto must not know the truth, not until he is ready." Connor nodded and said, "I would like the real story please." Sarutobi nodded and the two men sat down.
"The Kyuubi never died. The Yondaime risked his life to seal it. He sealed the beast into Naruto when he was born. I made the foolish decision of revealing Naruto as the vessel. No one was supposed to know, expect those I told, but the info leaked." Connor nodded with a sad smile. "The boy was dealt a bad hand. I know a way to rectify it." "Hiruzen looked up and asked, "What is it?" Connor stood and said "I will adopt the boy and teach him the ways of my Brotherhood. We will be gone for 9 years and come back. When he does, his training will be complete. He will be a full-fledged Assassin." Hiruzen though about it and nodded. "I need you to sign these forms to make it official." Connor nodded and said the form. "Naruto, you can come back in," Connor said. The door opened and Naruto walked in.
I have good news Naruto," Hiruzen said with a smile. "Connor here has adopted you." Naruto looked at Connor, who had a smile on his face. He then jumped on him, hugging him with tears coming down his face and saying thank you over and over again. "Naruto," Connor got the attention of his new son, "We will be leaving the village. Don't worry," Connor said as Naruto looked to argue. "We will be only leaving to train you. You will be trained in the skills of my Brotherhood, which is like a family. In our family, I am the head and you will have brothers and sisters who will gladly fight with you."
Naruto nodded with a happy smile. "Now we must go to your home to gather what important items you have." Naruto shook his hand and said, "I don't have anything of importance." Connor nodded and said, "Then we leave now. Goodbye Sandaime Hokage, We will be back in 9 years with the full of my chapter of the Brotherhood with me."
"Around you ready Naruto. You will probably not see the village for a few years," Connor asked. Naruto nodded his head and said, "I ready father, I will learn your families art." Connor shook his head and said, "Our family. Your training will not be easy. My art is a fickle one and requires perfection in order to master. I will expect nothing less." Naruto nodded with determination. "Good, let's go."
A few hours later
Father and Son walked up to a cave and Connor says, "Welcome to your home for the next 9 years, Naruto." They enter and instead of a damp scene, Naruto sees that looks very nice. There were other people walking around wearing similar clothing to Connor. One sees them and says, "The Master is home." Another person walks up to them. It was a female. She had pale skin, brown hair, and blue eyes. She was short barely reaching Connor's shoulders. Her figure was covered by the same robes that Connor wore, except they were pure white. She also had the leather bands on her wrist with the blade. She looked at Naruto and smiled. "Mentor, it's good that your back. Who is this?"
"Hello, Anne. This is Naruto, my adopted son. Naruto this is Anne, my student, and a full-fledged Assassin. She's in charge of handing out missions" Naruto bowed to her as Anne kneeled down. "He's so cute," Anne said as she pinched his cheek.
"I'm sorry Anne, but I must start training Naruto." Anne nodded and resumed her duties. "Follow Naruto," Connor said as he walked away. Naruto followed his father. They went to a training hall. It was a large field with many hiding places and straw dummies. In the distance, there were students training with swords. "Here is where we will do the most of your training," Connor informed Naruto. "When will I get my outfit?" He asked. Connor shook his head and said, "You won't get that or your hidden blades until you complete your training." Naruto nodded. "We will start by teaching you the art of disappearing," Connor said as they started training.
So Naruto has meet Connor. You may ask why Connor? He's my favorite assassin of them all. I hope you enjoyed and tell me what you think.
