Chapter 4: Meet Sister Asia
(Kuoh City, Abandoned Church)
After defeating Rias and her peerage, Naruto felt a sense of satisfaction but also a sense of unease. He knew there was more to this supernatural activity than just Rias and her group. Using his heightened senses, he detected another location that was causing an anomaly.
He quickly teleported to the location and found himself in front of a church. The church seemed to be the source of the disturbance. Without wasting any time, Naruto conjured up a truth-seeking orb and aimed it towards the top of the building. He wanted to make sure that the underground area was not destroyed in the process.
As he fired the orb, it reduced in size and started to suck in any stray priests that were in the vicinity. The church was quickly sucked into the mini Chibaku Tensei, and Naruto headed towards the underground basement.
Silently entering the underground basement, he found a fallen angel facing a nun who was crucified. Naruto didn't want to hear more of the angel's monologue with the nun, so he casually aimed his hand and shot an All-killing ash bone towards her head, turning her into ashes.
He then turned his attention to the nun and quickly put her into a genjutsu to make her unconscious. After releasing her from the cross, he decided to take her with him. He didn't want to leave her there in case the church was destroyed.
Naruto started to float and then flew through the underground ceiling, taking the unconscious nun with him. He hovered above the church for a few seconds, then dropped the mini Chibaku Tensei onto the church, causing it to crumble.
Not waiting for the aftershock, Naruto conjured up a portal behind him and flew into it. As he arrived in his own dimension, he gently placed the unconscious nun on a bed and started to examine her for any injuries. He knew he had to find out more about what was happening in the supernatural world, and this nun could be his key to unlocking those secrets.
(Kuoh City, Naruto's room)
The sunrays hitting her. Slowly stirring up from her slumber. The nun opens her eyes, she then pushes herself up into a sitting position, trying to remember to what happened last night.
As she looked around, the nun realized that she wasn't in her familiar surroundings anymore. The room was small and sparsely furnished, with only a bed, a chair, and a small table. She then tried to remember what had happened the night before, but all she could recall was feeling dizzy and disoriented. She wondered how she had ended up here and who had brought her.
"Hey, you're finally awake."
A voice startled her, and she turned to see a blond man sitting in the corner, wearing a white t-shirt and black pants.
"I'm sorry, who are you?" she asked in a timid voice.
"Yeah, sorry, I forgot to introduce myself," the man said, standing up and moving closer towards her. "My name is Uzumaki Naruto, and you are?"
"I'm Asia Argento, nice to meet you," she replied, trying to keep her composure.
"Well, nice to meet you too, Asia," Naruto said with a smile.
"So, what happened last night? I... I just blacked out," Asia said, feeling embarrassed.
"Sorry about that, I just didn't want you to freak out or anything, so I made you sleep," Naruto said with a sheepish expression.
Asia looked at him with confusion. "Why would I freak out?"
Naruto hesitated for a moment before replying, "Well, let's just say that you were in a bit of trouble last night."
Asia's heart skipped a beat. What kind of trouble was she in? She had been working at a church in Kuoh and didn't remember leaving there. Was she kidnapped? She felt a surge of panic rising within her.
Seeing her distress, Naruto quickly reassured her. "Don't worry, everything's okay now. You're safe."
Asia felt a wave of relief wash over her. She didn't know this man, but she was grateful for his help. She wondered who he was and how he had found her.
"Do you remember anything about last night?" Naruto asked, breaking the silence.
Asia shook her head. "No, I don't remember anything even leaving the church. How did you find me?"
Naruto hesitated again before answering. "That's a bit of a long story. Let's just say that I have a knack for finding people in trouble."
Asia looked at him with curiosity. She could sense that there was more to his story, but she didn't want to pry. She decided to trust him and focus on the present.
"What happened to the others?" Asia asked, referring to the people she was with before she blacked out.
"They're gone. You don't have to worry about them. You're free now," Naruto said with a reassuring smile.
Asia felt a mix of emotions - relief, confusion, and gratitude. She didn't know what had happened to her companions, but she was glad to be out of whatever situation they were in.
"Thank you for helping me," she said, feeling a surge of gratitude.
Naruto shrugged. "No problem. I'm just glad that you're okay."
Asia looked at him with curiosity. She didn't know who he was or why he had helped her, but she sensed that he was a good person. She wondered what would happen next and where she would go from here."
"So, anyway where do you live Asia?" Naruto curiously asks.
"Oh, i used to live in a church in italy" she answers in a sad tone.
Naruto looked at Asia with a curious expression. "A church in Italy, huh? That sounds interesting. Why were you living there?"
Asia shifted slightly and looked down at her hands. "Well, I'm a nun," she said softly. "I was living there as part of my religious community."
Naruto nodded, understanding dawning on his face. "I see. And do you have any family or other connections in Italy?"
Asia shook her head. "No, I don't. I've been part of the church for most of my life, so I haven't really had the chance to form any other relationships or connections."
Her expression was starting to get gloomy.
Naruto noticed the change in Asia's expression and realized that she must be an orphan. He felt a pang of sympathy for her and decided to offer her a place to stay.
"So, do you have any place to stay?" he asked.
Asia started to think about a place where she could stay. She had never been in this situation before and didn't know what to do. She didn't want to burden Naruto, who had already done so much for her, but she also had nowhere else to go.
"I...I don't know," she replied, feeling a sense of hopelessness wash over her.
Naruto could sense her distress and didn't want to leave her in such a vulnerable position. He thought for a moment and then spoke up.
"Look, you don't have to think too hard. You're welcome to stay here," he said, offering her a place to stay at his apartment.
Asia's eyes widened in surprise and gratitude. She couldn't believe that someone she barely knew would be so kind to her.
"Thank you, Uzumaki-san. I don't know how to repay you," she said, feeling overwhelmed.
"Don't worry about it. It's the least I can do," he replied with a smile.
Asia felt a sense of relief wash over her. She was grateful to have found someone like Naruto who was willing to help her in her time of need. She knew that she was lucky to have met him and felt a sense of hope for the first time in a long time.
"Feel free to relax, this will be your room from now on," he said, hoping to lighten the mood.
Asia managed to smile a little wider and said, "I'll make sure to help you, Uzumaki-san!"
"Thanks but just call me Naruto," he replied, a small smile playing at the corners of his mouth.
"Are you sure?" Asia asked, still feeling unsure of herself.
"Yes, I'm sure," Naruto said firmly.
"Okay, Naruto!" Asia said, feeling a little more at ease.
"That's better. You're hungry, right? Let's go eat," Naruto said, hoping to distract her from her worries.
"But I don't have any money," Asia said, her face falling.
"Don't worry about it. I didn't cook anything, so let's just go to the plaza," Naruto said, trying to reassure her.
"Is it okay? I don't want to take advantage of your kindness," Asia said, feeling grateful but hesitant.
"Nah, it's fine. I needed a haircut anyway," Naruto joked, trying to make her laugh.
The two of them headed towards the plaza, ready to face whatever the day had in store for them.
(Kuoh City, Plaza)
Arriving at the bustling plaza in the warm afternoon, the two blondes immediately noticed the sea of people. It was crowded, with families, couples, and groups of friends strolling around, shopping, and taking in the sights and sounds of the vibrant city.
Not wanting to brave the rush, they decided to take a break and headed towards the food court. The smells of different cuisines from the vendors wafted through the air, mingling together to create a delicious aroma that made their stomachs growl.
"So, what do you want to eat Asia?" Naruto asked, scanning the food court for options.
Asia looked around, mesmerized by the variety of food available. She had never been to a place like this before, with so many choices. She had always been confined to the church where she lived, and had never had the opportunity to explore the world outside.
"I actually haven't been to a place like this before, so I don't know what they're selling," Asia replied, a hint of wonder in her voice.
Asia mindlessly answers while looking all over the place.
Being more intrigued now he then asks.
"We'll then, how is it after seeing it for the first time?"
Naruto was surprised. He had traveled around and tasted different cuisines, but it never occurred to him that Asia might not have had the same opportunity. He looked at her with a smile and said, "Well, then, let me be your guide. I know a great Italian restaurant here in the food court."
Asia's face lit up with excitement. "Okay, let's go!" she said eagerly, following Naruto towards the restaurant.
As they walked, Naruto couldn't help but notice how Asia's eyes shone with curiosity and wonder. She was like a child in a candy store, taking in everything with awe and amazement. He found it endearing, and couldn't wait to show her more of the world
After finishing their meal, Naruto and Asia walked towards the barber shop, they chatted about their day so far and what they planned to do next. Naruto apologized for needing to go to the barber shop, but Asia was understanding and didn't mind waiting for him. She was grateful for the chance to explore the area and take in all the sights and sounds of the bustling city.
Once they arrived at the barber shop, Naruto turned to Asia and said, "Sorry Asia, can you wait here for a little bit?"
"Sure, I'll wait around here!" she replied cheerfully.
"Thanks, I'll come back as soon as I'm finished."
"Don't worry, take your time," Asia said, giving him an encouraging smile.
"Take this, just in case!" Naruto grabbed her hand and placed a piece of paper in it before entering the shop.
As Asia looked down at her hand, she saw that it was now holding 10,000 yen. "Is this money!? he gave me too much already!" she thought to herself. She quickly put the money in her pocket and decided to use this opportunity to explore the area.
Feeling grateful for everything that had happened since she arrived in Kuoh Town, Asia reflected on how much her life had changed. She had been freed from a terrible situation and had made a new friend in Naruto. He had saved her from those who were after her, even though she was a total stranger to him. Not many people would have done that, and Asia wished she could somehow repay him.
Lost in thought, Asia was startled when a clerk approached her and asked if she needed any help. Asia chuckled a little and said that she was just browsing. The clerk, sensing that she was looking for a gift, suggested that she look at the flowers. After an hour of listening to a detailed explanation of every plant in the shop, Asia finally settled on a pink gerbera. She wasn't sure if Naruto would like it, but the clerk assured her that it was a great choice.
With her gift in hand, Asia headed back to the barber shop. As she arrived, Naruto came out the door, sporting a new short blonde hairdo with a middle part wavy hairstyle. "Oh, hey Asia. thanks for waiting!" he said, beaming with pride.
Trying to hide her present from Naruto, Asia replied, "No problem!"
Curious about what she was hiding, Naruto decided not to ask. "So, how do I look?" he asked, running his fingers through his new hair.
"You look good!" Asia replied, admiring his new hairstyle.
"Thanks, my head feels much lighter now," Naruto said, chuckling.
"That's great! Umm hey...I want to give you something!" Asia said, holding out the pink gerbera.
"A flower...? Thanks," Naruto said, taking the gift from her.
"No, it should be me thanking you!" Asia replied, shaking her head and looking at him sincerely.
"It was nothing," Naruto replied, smiling.
"But still thank you, Naruto!" Asia said, smiling brightly.
"You're welcome!" Naruto replied, feeling grateful to have met Asia.
After a brief pause, Naruto suggested they go shopping for clothes. Asia agreed, excited to find some new clothes. They spent the next few hours trying on different outfits and picking out new accessories. Naruto made sure that Asia had all the essential things she needed and even purchased some items for himself. When they were done, they grabbed some Starbucks and headed back home, feeling satisfied with their productive day.
(Kuoh City, Streets)
As the two blondes were walking back home peacefully, they enjoyed the serene silence of the night. The moon was shining bright, and the stars were twinkling, casting a magical aura over the whole city. The breeze was cool and refreshing, bringing a sense of calmness and tranquility to their minds.
However, their peaceful stroll was interrupted when a sudden burst of energy erupted in front of them, forming a teleportation spell. Before they could even react, a young man stepped out of the spell. He had dark-green hair and a gentle, handsome face.
"Greetings, my name is Diodora Astaroth. It's a pleasure meeting you, Asia Argento," the young man said with a charming smile.
As soon as the devil mentioned Asia's name, Naruto's caution kicked in, and he immediately became alert. He looked towards Asia and noticed the recognition in her eyes. "Do you know him, Asia?" he asked her.
Caught up in a trance, Asia didn't answer immediately. She seemed to be lost in thought, trying to remember where she had seen this man before.
Not expecting an answer from Asia, Naruto turned his attention towards the devil. "Who the hell are you?" he demanded, his voice laced with suspicion and aggression.
However, the devil just smiled at Asia, ignoring Naruto's question completely. It was as if he was only interested in her and didn't even acknowledge Naruto's presence.
Naruto's suspicion grew even stronger. He stepped forward, his hand preparing to create a staff, ready to defend himself and Asia if needed. "I said, who the hell are you?" he repeated, his voice louder this time.
The devil's smile widened, and he took a step closer to Asia, making Naruto even more uneasy. "You'll find out soon enough, Human. But for now, I only have eyes for Asia," he said, his voice dripping with honeyed words.
Asia finally snapped out of her trance and looked at the devil with fear and confusion. She didn't know who he was or what he wanted from her, but his words sent chills down her spine. She took a step back, closer to Naruto, seeking comfort and protection from the devil's unsettling presence
"Yes, I'm fine now. thank you, Naruto." as she says trying to maintain a brave demeanor.
Although not completely convince Naruto relents and releases his hold after hearing her answer.
Standing in front of them, the devil Diodora kneels down and takes Asia's hand and kisses it. Surprised by the sudden action, Asia quickly takes her hand back and moves away from the devil. Still kneeling, Diodora keeps his smile and stands back up then proceeds to walk towards Asia again.
Having enough, Naruto steps in front of Asia and states his thoughts. "Hey, cut it off. She doesn't feel comfortable around you."
Diodora just sticks his hand towards Naruto's face and blasts his head at zero distance. The whole street pavement cracks and all the light poles go crashing down. Asia stands shocked at what just happened, her friend was suddenly blasted to ashes for protecting her. Tears start to roll down her cheeks as she stares at Naruto's remains.
As if sensing her anguish, Diodora quickly closes the gap between them and starts touching Asia. "Now that the pest is gone, I'll collect you now, Asia." Using all her willpower, Asia pushes him away and quickly puts some distance between them. "Don't touch me!"
Uncharacteristically for Asia, she raises her voice and slaps Diodora's face. Surprised, both of them even herself. "My my, Asia, I didn't think you had it in you," Diodora says as he licks his lips and approaches Asia.
Asia tries her best but can't move her body. "Why can't I move?!" she thinks to herself. Diodora reaches Asia and continues touching her. "Don't worry, Asia. I just cast a spell when I touched you earlier." Asia's eyes slowly lose their light and start to look glazed. "We'll look at that, hypnosis complete. How wonderful!"
Certain that Asia couldn't do anything, Diodora starts to roam his hands all over her body, touching her inappropriately. Asia's mind is clouded, and she can't move her body to resist. She feels violated and helpless.
"You know, my original plan was to have you fall in the pits of despair first, then once you've reach the very buttom that you're so desperate for help, thats where I'll appear and save you, then proceed to add you to my collection, shame though even if it didn't go as plan i can still do it so no worries, say hello to your new life Asia."
As Diodora created a teleportation circle and brought Asia with him, Naruto stood still where he was blasted, unharmed, hearing all that was said. Reaching the limit of his patience, he decided to finally intervene after confirming Diodora's intentions. Slowly turning towards him, Diodora saw Naruto and was surprised to see the human he blasted was perfectly fine. He got out of the crater and jumped to the street without making any sound, while Naruto walked towards them casually.
Diodora stopped conjuring the teleportation circle and blasted Naruto again, thinking that it would finally do the job. But instead of turning into ash, Naruto brushed Diodora's attack like it was nothing and continued his walk. Diodora was shocked to see the human surviving his attack, and he let go of the spell to focus his attention on Naruto and power up.
He then tried to blast him again and again, but it was not working. Frustrated, he proceeded to try and punch him, but Naruto dodged all of his attacks. Diodora lost his composure and started whining, "Who do you think you are? You lowly creature! You're nothing!"
Naruto saw an opening and instantly moved behind Diodora while looking in the opposite direction. Naruto slammed his right hand behind Diodora's back, and without giving him any time to reel in the pain, he quickly backspin-kicked him. Teleporting to where Diodora would land, Naruto continued his assault by elbowing his stomach and following up with a punch to the face, sending Diodora flying into an abandoned building.
Slowly walking, Naruto followed Diodora inside the abandoned building. He saw the devil lying under completely collapsed rubble and approached him. Naruto grabbed onto Diodora's hair and dragged him out, ignoring his pleas and cries for mercy. Naruto brought Diodora's face closer, even seeing the devil crying. Pleading for mercy, Diodora didn't feel any remorse, and Naruto felt more anger that his sight started to become more black.
Activating the Rinnegan to see Diodora's memories, Naruto saw the destruction he had caused and came to a conclusion. Having enough, Naruto decided Diodora's punishment. "Now then, how do you want to die?" Hearing the threat of imminent death, Diodora started crying harder and started bargaining. "NO! NO! WAIT, I CAN GIVE YOU ALL YOU WANT! PLEASE, JUST SPARE ME!"
"You can't stop destroying things, can you?" Trying his hardest to get out of Naruto's grip, Diodora looked at Naruto's face only to see an expressionless face. Seeing that reaction made Diodora more frightened. Naruto then pulled back his arm and punched Diodora's face over and over again until it looked completely destroyed.
Naruto was about to end Diodora's life, but someone grabbed onto his arm. It was none other than Asia. In the middle of the night, both of them stood still, waiting for the other person to speak. After a few awkward moments, Naruto asked her calmly, "What are you doing, Asia?" His calm tone was cold to her, and she wasn't a fan of hurting someone and tried to avoid it. After gaining her wits back, Asia shook off her uneasiness and talked back. "I'm stopping you because I don't want to see anyone die." She didn't want Naruto to kill this man or anyone for her sake.
Hearing her answer, Naruto silently complied, slightly moving the grabbed arm to indicate he wouldn't do anything. Asia reluctantly released it afterwards. For a few moments, Naruto just stared at Diodora's unmoving body.
"Tell me why should I spare him after all the things he'd done to you Asia?" Naruto asks with a serious look.
As Naruto and Asia stood there, facing each other, the tension in the air was palpable. Asia was torn between her desire to forgive Diodora and Naruto's warning about the potential danger he could pose to others. She knew that Diodora was a devil and had done many terrible things to her in the past, but she also believed in the potential for redemption.
Hearing Naruto's question, Asia looked towards Diodora and contemplated how to answer. She couldn't deny that Diodora had caused her immense pain and suffering, but something in her heart told her that he deserved a chance to change. Summoning her sacred gear, she approached Diodora and began to heal him.
As she worked, she spoke to Naruto. "I honestly don't know why, but I believe that anyone can still become good even after doing some bad things. I know it sounds illogical. I just can't help but feel that way, maybe it was because I was a nun, or I guess that's just the kind of person I am."
Naruto watched her silently, a look of concern on his face. He knew that Asia's heart was in the right place, but he also understood the risks of sparing someone like Diodora. "I hope you realize that sparing him might lead to more harm towards others, and it's all on you. I hope you can carry that guilt, Asia," he warned her.
Asia hung her head in shame, feeling the weight of Naruto's words. She knew that he was right, but she couldn't help but feel that she had made the right decision. As she finished healing Diodora, she stood up and turned to face Naruto.
"So, what now?" she asked him, her voice barely above a whisper.
Naruto looked at her for a few moments, then turned away. "Let's go, Asia," he said, raising his hand to create a portal.
As Asia followed him towards the portal, she couldn't help but feel a sense of dread in the pit of her stomach. She knew that Diodora was a dangerous person, and that sparing him could have serious consequences. However, she also felt that she had made the right decision in giving him a chance to redeem himself.
As they stepped through the portal, Naruto quickly surveyed the surroundings, making sure that they were safe. He grabbed Diodora by the back of his collar and pulled him through the portal before closing it behind him.
As they made their way back home, neither of them realized that Diodora had set a trap for Asia while he was unconscious. The two blondes may have started the day on a good note, but it had ended on a decidedly sour one.
