By the way… I made some changes in the battle, especially the last part (in which Naruto transform into that half fox state) because in my opinion, that last scene had too little action for my taste. But nevertheless the result is almost the same. I hope you like it. This first chapter contains A BIT OF SPOILERS! Read at your own risk!

GWA HA HA HA! : Kyuubi speech
My first Naruto Fic, be nice.
The story begins in the duel at the valley of the end.
Valley of the End
Two red eyes with two commas in it are widening at the sight. Uchiha Sasuke stared disbelievingly at a certain blond haired shinobi in front of him emanating a huge amount of chakra as well as a tremendous killing intent. The Chakra was so incredible; it vibrates the whole river around them. But what is more terrifying for him, the Chakra forms an image of a large Demon Fox with nine swishing crimson tails. Here he was trying to kill his so called best friend, who tried to stop him from going to Orochimaru to gain power, with his Chidori. His so-called friend however managed to deflect his thrust and it impaled his lung instead. He was about to finish it with a tight chokehold when the blond suddenly grip his arm tight, nearly crushing it in the process. He managed to let go, only to be gripped with this sudden… terror. Then before his vary crimson eyes, the huge hole in his lung closed in a fast rate.
'What? His injuries healed this quickly… Impossible!"
Soon the image dispersed as it shrank towards the blond, transforming him in the process. Than, raising his head, the blond look at Sasuke. His usually blue eyes replaced by a ruthless, blood red, with a black slit eyes. The whiskers in his cheeks grow bolder by the second. His canine grew longer till it resemble a fox' fang. Contradict the bloodlust aura he emanates, the blond was crying.
'Wha… What is this?!'
"Sasuke! You won't go to Orochimaru! Even if I have to break the bones in your arms and legs, I WILL STOP YOU!!"
'Th… This is Naruto? What is this pressure? What the hell is that crimson Chakra anyway? …Is… he… a Monster!?'
Gulping down his throat, Sasuke tried gathering some nerve to let him speak while still holding to his crushed arm. "Naruto… What the hell… are you."
The berserked blond answer simply: "A friend." Naruto cracked his now clawed fist before continuing. "That's why; I say I won't give you up to Orochimaru. Even if I have to break your arms and legs, I'm going to STOP you!!"
Sasuke gritted his teeth. Kami-sama, his arm stings so much! What did that Naruto done to him? Before he got his answers, the said blond lung forward with incredible speed. With a mighty roar, Naruto slammed his arm at Sasuke who blocked it. The force of the attack was too much for the Uchiha to handle, and the next second he was already thrown off course several meters away.
Then he notice that Naruto was already on top of him, ready to smash him again. A few quick hand seals later, and "Katon, Gokyakuu no jutsu!!" A giant raging Fireball burst from Sasuke's mouth and engulf Naruto. The Fox host screams while unleashing his Chakra, dispersing the attack, while pushing the jutsu performer down to the river.
'What! With Chakra alone!?'
Before he could brush off his shock, a blur appear around him.
"Wha… Too fa…" the next second, the Uchiha were punched in every part of his body without him being able to guard let alone counter attack. The next second later, scratched and bruised, a powerful punch sent him out of the water and smashed him on the cliff walls. Before he could fall down, however, the Kyuubi host slammed him back to the rock.
"Wake up already!! If you're still not sure, I'll break you like a stick, and brings you back immobile!"
Silent for a couple of seconds later, Sasuke start to laugh, Orochimaru style.
"Ku ku ku ku…" Sasuke went quiet for a moment before memories of his family flashed in his mind, and he begins to talk once more. "Shut the hell up…"
"What do you know about me? Someone like you without family or siblings…" Then suddenly his voice grew louder. "YOU HAD NOTHING IN THE FIRST PLACE!! WHAT THE HELL DO YOU UNDERSTAND ABOUT ME!! HUH!?" He kicked Naruto off him while continuing on, knowing he had hit the spot. "WE SUFFER BECAUSE OF OUR BONDS!! YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE LOSING THEM… you…!!"
Sasuke panting heavily, either it's because of fatigue, or glad that he had finally let out. Naruto kept quiet. Knowing how true it was… but…
"I don't understand about real families and brothers…" Naruto quiet for a moment before continuing, his voice slightly calmer then before, "But when I'm with Iruka-sensei…" an image of Iruka Sensei treating him a ramen flashed for a moment.
"The first thing a Shinobi had to do is filled up! Don't get yourself a stomach ache though!"
"I wonder… if its feel like being with a father…" They drop silent once more…
"And when I'm with you…" Again, memories of him bickering with his arch nemesis in front of him flash in his and, probably, Sasuke's mind.
"Dumb ass! Dumb ass!!" "What did you say? You Dumb Nut!"
"I ain't gonna lose to you dammit!" "Heh Keep talking…"
"Ha ha! Look at that!" "Humph!"
They went silent for a minute before Naruto continue. This time there is no hostility whatsoever in his voice.
"… I wonder if it's what it felt like… of being with a brother…"
Sasuke's eyes widened for a moment. Here he was, angry because his hated brother betrayed him while he unconsciously betrayed the one person that had thought him as a brother… He closed his eyes for a moment… thinking. 'Naruto I'm sorry… I… I wish to kill Itachi… I need you guys to hate me… so that one day when I left, none of you will feel sorry about it… I was striving to kill my brother… I need strength Naruto. More strength... I need to go to Orochimaru... but...' "…why?"
"…Why… for me… just because of me… you go this far?"
Naruto smiled his sad smile before replied. "…… for me… that's the first bond I've ever had…" 'I could never hate you Sasuke… you are my brother' "That's why… I must STOP you…"
Sasuke closed his eyes remembering the days they went through together… as if could read Naruto's mind he went to reply his thoughts… 'I can't hate you either… Naruto… but…'
Sasuke opened his eyes. He tied his Konoha hitai-ate. A look of determination was evident in his face as his Sharingan transform, from two comas to three comas. 'So be it Naruto…' "Come… Naruto…"
Naruto took a bit shocked by the sudden behavior.
'If you can't hate me…' Sasuke look determined more than ever.
"Then… I'll break that bond!" '…I'll make you hate me!!'
'Sasuke…' Naruto thought for a moment before noticing something. "Break them…? Then why… now your headband…" His voice enters its battle mode almost instantly.
"I will acknowledge… that you are strong."
"Because… you are someone who knows the same pain of loneliness like I do… and that pain makes a person stronger… Because of that, by severing these bonds…I will gain even more strength!" 'Forgive me Naruto'
"From now on we'll fight as equals. However…" here, Sasuke tap his Headband while giving his trademark smirk. "You will not be able to scratch my forehead. That much hasn't changed."
"No matter what you've said, it's useless, Sasuke…" Naruto cracked his knuckles.
"The time for talking is over… For now… we only fight!"
Both eying each other for a moment.
'Sasuke stop this now!'
'Naruto… I'm sorry… I'm way too far to stop…'
And the duel rise again…
Sasuke, having mastered the Sharingan, managed to predict every single movement Naruto do. Things go the other way around as it Naruto's turn to get pummeled down by Sasuke. After a couple of dozen punches and kicks later, Naruto back to square one: completely out bested by the Sharingan user.
'I can't back up… Sasuke has me now…'
'Naruto… I'll punch you one more time to finish this… Farewell… brother.' Sasuke held Naruto's leg in preparation for the final strike.
(Meanwhile, inside Naruto's mind, Kyuubi's cage.)
KU KU KU KU… YOU ARE WEAK AREN'T YOU…YOUNG ONE?
'Kyuubi? What do you want? I'm not expecting my last conversation is with you…'
KU KU KU… WHAT DO YOU EXPECT KITTLING? ANGELS FROM HEAVEN COME AND SAVE YOUR PUNNY SORRY ASS? GIVING A NICE POMPOUS CONVERSATION FOR YOUR LAMENT TO HEAVEN? SORRY BUT A FOX DEMON LORD HERE ISN'T VERY COMFORTABLE WITH ANGELS OR KAMIS, DON'T YOU THINK? KU KU KU KU…
'What do you want?'
NOTHING REALLY… JUST… I DON'T LIKE IT WHEN THINGS DOESN'T GO THE WAY I LIKE IT.
'What EXACTLY you want, OMAE WA KITSUNE NO BAKA!?'
GA HA HA HA HA…! I LIKE THAT GUTS OF YOURS! THE ONE WHO SEALED ME… WHAT WAS HIS NAME? YONDAIME-DONO, YOU HUMANS CALLED HIM? THE ONE WHO SEALED ME HERE… YOU AND HIM, BOTH OF YOU ARE TRULY ALIKE… SAME GUTS… SAME STUBBORNESS… SAME STUPIDITY…
'Kinda lost here…'
I WANT TO MAKE A DEAL WITH YOU KIT. A NEW DEAL… BUT FOR NOW… SAVE YOUR OWN ASS FIRST FROM THIS SO CALLED 'BROTHER' OF YOURS… LET ME HELP YOU…
'Don't see why I should trust you… but… what do you need?'
'In your dreams. You'll kill us both! I want to bring Sasuke back alive! Not half digested in the belly of a stupid oversized fox!'
GWA HA HA HA HA HA! GOTCHA! JUST KIDDING KIT. WHAT I'M ASKING IS A BIT OF YOUR MIND. LET MY VOICE GUIDE YOU. AND LET ME HAVE A LITTLE REIGN OVER THE YOUKI I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU.
'Why should I let you?'
WELL IT WILL BE YOUR ADVANTAGE. FIRST YOUR CHAKRA WILL BE REPLENISHED AND EVEN INCREASED BY TENFOLDS. SECONDLY, I WILL SHOW YOU SOME OF MY MOST PRIZED TECHNIQUES DURING MY OLD DESTRUCTION DAYS.
Naruto didn't dare to imagine what this 'destruction days' means, but he had to admit that the fox had a point. But one thing still doesn't fit well.
'Why should I share a bit of my mind with you? And this Youki, why do you want a little reign over it? Can't you just simply give it to me?'
THAT, YOUNG ONE, BRINGS ME TO MY THIRD AND FOURTH REASONS. RIGHT NOW, THE ONLY PROBLEM YOU HAVE RIGHT NOW IS THE FACT THAT YOUR FRIEND THERE IS INDEED A GENIUS. WHILE YOU, YOUNG ONE, ARE PROOVED TO BE 100 SHEER DUMB BRAT.
THAT'S TRUE ISN'T IT? EITHER WAY, NO MATTER HOW CLEVER HE IS, HIS SO CALLED GENIOUSITY PALES COMPARE TO MINE. HIS BRAIN CAN NEVER BE ABLE TO COMPETE WITH THE CUNNINGNESS OF A FOX DEMON OVERLORD WHO HAS LIVED FOR ETERNITY. CATCH MY DRIFT?
Naruto's mind quiet for a moment, knowing how true it was. Kyuubi, having lived for thousands of eons, must have encountered unbelievable number of obstacles and difficult situations. His experience and cunningness is, beyond doubt, surpass even probably Sandaime Hokage or even Orochimaru.
'What's the last reason?'
THE QUANTITY AND THE QUALITY OF THE CHAKRA I WILL GIVE TO YOU IS NO ORDINARY CHAKRA. THIS IS WHAT YOU HUMANS OFTEN REFERS TO AS YOUKI. ALTHOUGH LOOKS THE SAME, YOUKI FLOWS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT WITH CHAKRA, AS IT WAS ORIGINALLY NOT FOR HUMAN BUT FOR HANYOUS AND YOUKAIS. THAT'S WHY; I NEED TO CONTROL THE DISTRIBUTION OF THE YOUKI SO THAT YOU WON'T GET YOUR LIFE ENDANGERED. NOW WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME HERE. YOU WANT THE POWER OR NOT!?
'… Do it.'
The pool in Naruto's mind flash red, and then a surge of monstrous Youki flows through all his veins.
Meanwhile on the outside, the red chakra envelopes Naruto once more, this time a lot thicker than before, and it appears to be boiling.
Sasuke had his eyes widened a great deal. 'This guy… what is this? Bloodline limit?'
As Sasuke wonders on Naruto, the said person transform further, this time his canine grows even longer, his nails, now covered in claw shaped Chakra, grows longer as well and his whiskers become thicker. The red chakra also starts to shift form into a demon fox form with one tail. Meanwhile, the water around them began to vaporize.
The Sharingan user stares wide eyed at his ex teammate. He observes the… monstrosity before him with both fear and awe. He starts from the fox ear like chakra, down to his claws, before back up to its boiling tail.
'What the hell is that bloody crimson Chakra? Naruto, what on earth are you really?'
Then suddenly, memories came back to him.
'But of course, your target is Naruto'
'"To abduct Naruto" that was the order given to us by the higher echelons of the Akatsuki.'
NOW it all made sense. He doesn't know what on earth Akatsuki is. But at LEAST he understands WHY they want Naruto. The chakra Naruto possessed, it appears to be some short of bloodline limit, and a very powerful one at that. Heck who wouldn't want that kind of power Naruto possessed? Well, he was one of them really… 'So… you seem to possess a special power…'
Sasuke gulped in fear. 'Now… I understand!'
Naruto dashed with an inhuman speed at Sasuke. Taken by surprise, the raven haired boy a little caught off guard when Naruto's afterimage appears behind him. With quick reflexes, he tilts his head. The punch (or should I say claw?) missed his head completely however, NOT SO FAST COCKY BOY!! The chakra suddenly took form into a large claw.
'What the… I swear I heard the chakra talks!!'
The claw smashed his face sending him few meters off. 'Ack… the chakra seems like had a thought of its own! It moves completely different! And then there is that voice… In any rate, close combat is out of question.'
"Gokyakuu no jutsu!" Sasuke sends another burst of flames towards the Kyuubi's host. Much to his horror, the jutsu was… absorbed?
FOOLISH MORTAL! I'M A MASTER OF FIRE. YOUR PUNY ATTACK IS USELESS AGAINTS ME!
'Wha… it talks again! So that Chakra indeed could talk!'
OFF COURSE I CAN TALK YOU LIT'L SHIT! HUMPH! PUNY HUMANS, ALWAYS THINK THEY'RE BETTER THAN US JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN TALK.
"W… You… You know what I'm thinking? W… What are you?"
"I would appreciate it… if we could just finish this…without questions. I thought you said the time for talking is over…?" Naruto suddenly growled before the chakra bellowed in reply. FINE. JIGOKU KATON, KITSUNE ENDAN! (Hellfire element, Fox Fire Blast!)
The chakra on Naruto's left shoulder forms a large kitsune head, about one half the sizes of Naruto's head. The chakra fox's mouth opened before gathering a huge amount of destructive chakra. The chakra fox head shot a large fireball, nearly twice the size of Sasuke's grand fireball. The difference is, as it shot the huge fireball, the flames are colored in bloody red with a fiery purple aura surrounds it. Also the bloody fireball is at least twice the speed of his normal fireball. Making it appear to be larger than it already has.
"Holy shit!" Sasuke jump out of the way. He barely managed to dodge the main fireball, but the aura emanated by the fireball managed to reach a tip of his shirt at the right sleeve, completely ripping a quarter parts of his clothes and burn it down to nothingness. Sasuke stared at his blackened shoulder… 'Kami… sama… and that was just the tip of its auras…' Meanwhile, the fire bolt continues to make its merry way and smashed against the cliff wall creating a massive explosion that shook the entire valley and leaving a 12 foot burnt hole.
Knowing his thought by the look on Sasuke's face, Kyuubi chuckled evilly, GETS HIT BY THAT ONCE AND YOU'RE HISTORY, MORTAL. GOOD OBSERVATION…
'You gotta be shittin me… and I'm out of space already…' indeed he was. The giant fireball had force him to the edge of the foot of the statue… and Naruto is at shooting range… in another words… he got himself cornered.
"You can't beat me Sasuke. Not at this rate. I'm offering you the last chance. Return peacefully to Konoha, and I will help you to defend your case before Tsunade baa-san, or ELSE!" Naruto didn't have to finish. The Kyuubi chakra prepare to use the same attack once more
"Heh, you wish!" silently Sasuke place an explosion tag on his kunai.
DO YOU WANT IT ORIGINAL CRISPY, EXTRA CRISPY, MEDIUM OR WELL DONE? The Kyuubi's voice chuckled sadistically.
"How about raw? I love sushi." Sasuke chuckled. Great. Joke around before get roasted in hell…
IF ONLY YOU WEREN'T SUCH A COCKY BASTARD SMARTASS, I COULD USE TO LIKE YOU. CAN I DO IT NOW NARUTO?
"…you make me have no choice…Sasuke!"
'NOW!' with that Sasuke threw his kunai upward as strong as his hand could muster, injecting chakra into it to make the impact extra strong.
KITSUNE ENDAN!! The fox head roared as he throws a monstrous amount of purple red fire towards the trapped Uchiha.
Suddenly an explosion occurred on top of them. The three (Kyuubi too) look up, only to see a huge hand made of rock falls right between them. The rock slammed Kyuubi's attack and cancelled it right on the spot before explodes and create a huge crater. It was the chance he needed to jump out of the danger zone. Quickly enough he threw few smoke bombs and out of the place immediately.
KU KU KU KU… YOU HAVE A VERY INTERESTING FRIEND HERE KIT…
"Interesting, but idiot."
LOOK WHO'S TALKING HERE…
"At least I'm not foolish enough to let myself to become a sacrifice for that snake asshole…"
I'D LIKE TO SEE THAT OROCHIMARU TRY IF YOU DO… I WANNA KNOW WHAT HIS FOUL SOUL TASTE LIKE…
"Let's finish this… I sense Sasuke is still nearby…"
Meanwhile, Sasuke was more then terrified. He just miraculously escapes death. What on earth is Naruto's chakra? Not only it provides Naruto with an insane amount chakra, it also spreads a feeling of terror to whoever close by. The only person managed to make himself this frightened is Itachi… when he massacred his clan…
HEH. FOUND HIM.
HE'S HIDING BEHIND A ROCK… CLEVER BASTARD… HE KNOWS THAT KITSUNE ENDAN WILL TAKE TIME TO GET THROUGH A ROCK…
"Then let's just fire a shower of it then… ack!"
Naruto saw his arm and see that it got burned. 'Chakra burn?'
THAT'S THE PROBLEM BRAT. I CAN'T GET MORE YOUKI OUT THAN IT ALREADY HAS… YOUR BODY CAN'T TAKE IT… AND KITSUNE ENDAN TOOK A LOT OF CHAKRA… I SAY… WE HAVE ONLY 4 MORE SHOTS… AND AFTER THAT THAT'S IT. IF I GIVE YOU MORE OF MY YOUKI, YOU'LL BE THE ONE WHO GET BURNED DOWN YOUNG ONE… WE CAN'T STAY LIKE THIS FOR LONG!
"Then what should we do? You got any close combat jutsu?"
I HAVE A VAST NUMBER OF JUTSU THAT I CAN USE, EVEN WITH OUR CURRENT CHAKRA AMMOUNT. I'M NOT A FOX DEMON OVERLORD FOR NOTHING! HOWEVER… I THOUGHT OF A MORE INTERESTING IDEA…
Sasuke was trembling now… he was hiding behind the head of the statue while focusing chakra in his ears so that he could hear what is going on, though barely. He heard the awkward conversation between his ex-teammate with his… demonic chakra. He calls it that now as he heard something along the lines of Youki and Demon lord. 'WHERE ON EARTH NARUTO HAD THAT KIND OF CHAKRA ANYWAY?' his mind screams in both terror and frustration. His brain suddenly stops working when he heard the next demonic message from the devil chakra:
LET'S CHANGE STYLE SHALL WE?
The chakra kitsune head opened once more, gathering more and more energy in its mouth before bellowed with a mighty roar
Sasuke had no idea what the hell was that mean until he heard the next sentence:
JIGOKU KATON, MAKAI NO HIKARI! (Hellfire element, Light of Netherworld!)
The fox head's mouth shot out a sickeningly red beam that forms a large laser line. The size of the beam is a bit smaller then Gokyakuu no jutsu, but it looks solid showing that a large quantity of chakra are condensed in it. The demonic laser beam shot out, drill its way through the statue's face, and pierced Sasuke right on his cheek and upper shoulder in an instant. Now Sasuke was completely terrified. A black gash appeared in his cheek and shoulder.
KU KU KU KU… FOUND YOU.
"That attack… how much chakra did he put on that thing he shot me with?!"
NOT MUCH YOU KNOW. AT OUR CURRENT STATE, I CAN ONLY DO THIS TWO MORE TIMES. THIS ATTACK COMPRESSED A GREAT NUMBER OF CHAKRA INTO THAT ONE SINGLE BEAM. LESS FLEXIBLE, BUT EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE AGAINTS SOME COWARDLY KIT WHO HIDE THEIR SORRY ASS BEHIND AN OBSTACLE...OR IN YOUR CASE…A ROCK. HEH HEH…
Okay. That's it. He nearly got himself pummeled down into a bloody pulp, burned in flames of hell, and now, his friend's chakra almost shot an air hole through his head. "I thought your mission was to capture me ALIVE?"
"I am. However, the order doesn't state that you must come back in one whole piece. I see no problem why I can't take you back to Konoha… without a limb or two."
Naruto was completely pissed. Here he was, punched and bruised, trying to save his brother in arm's ass from a psychotic snake freak, and his so called brother insist on going on his merry way, while he get a chakra burn and possibly could have been burned down to a crisp by his own Chakra if this goes too long. Big deal. For now all he cares about is taking Sasuke back to Konoha, AWAY from Orochimaru, no matter how battered his and mainly Sasuke's body get. Even if its means he will be disabled for the rest of his life, he didn't care.
GWA! HA! HA! HA! I AGREE.
"Some bloody brother you are."
"You start it."
"What do you mean?"
"You're the one who impaled me with Chidori in lung head on. Remember?"
"Oh bloody hell…" to say that Sasuke didn't regret the time is a complete lie, given with the current predicament he's in. "And I suppose you're going to try to put me in a chokehold as well?"
"No I won't… but Sakura or Tsunade baa-san might."
"Heh, that hag won't strangle me."
"Yep. She'll smash you to the seventh depths of hell, I think."
"In any case, have you changed your mind?"
"My offer has no expiration date. You could come with me back to Konoha in one piece, or in separate pieces. Make your choice."
"Naruto… do you think I really going to incline after all this?" As Sasuke said this, his curse seal began to activate. 'Damn… Finally I can change… I have no choice. Let see how much power you have given to me… Orochimaru…'
"…Fine. I'll leave you half dead, but alive enough for our trip back to Konoha!"
I'LL TAKE OUT HIS LEGS THEN. JIGOKU KATON, MAKAI NO HIKARI!
As expected, Sasuke jump away from his hiding spot. The laser blast pierced through the place where his leg had been, just like what the Demon's chakra had said. Sasuke set chakra on his foot, attempted to stick to the walls before run for his dear life…BEFORE he found himself unable to move at all. The Sharingan was terrified to no end when he saw this long claw like crimson chakra had grabbed him. Then he saw that Naruto had already stood on the wall, the long chakra claw protruding from his left arm.
With a roar, Naruto pull the Chakra to his direction. The next view Sasuke saw, Naruto's chakra induced fist, up-close. A sickening crack could be heard throughout the Valley of the End. Sasuke were smashed high above the sky before a Naruto's clone, which had sneak up on top of him, kick him all the way back down to the leg of the Shodaime Hokage statue. By the time Sasuke hit the stone leg, the curse seal had already covered almost all of his body.
"Ku ku ku ku… I'm not even hurt…" Sasuke was chuckling madly now.
CRAP. CAREFUL KIT. I SENSE A DEFILED CHAKRA FLOWING THROUGH YOUR FRIEND.
'Orochimaru's curse seal…'
"Ku ku ku ku ku" 'I finally have this power… I don't know what I will become… but…' "I'm not hurt… Naruto…" As he speak, the curse seal starts to cover his skin, turning them into pale blue and his hair grows longer while turning into white color. His blazing Red Sharingan, left untouched, but his eyes turned black. "You were special, but… I'm more special than you." By the time Sasuke's on his feet, the transformation was (half) complete.
"Special… is that what you called it… Sasuke… such monstrosity…"
"Monstrosity? I don't think so… I'm surprised Naruto… You, with that demonic power of yours, above all others, should understand…"
"…At least the power doesn't turn me into a selfish power hungry bastard like you..."
"Well your loss then… As for me…I need more of this power… More… so much more… yes… that's right… no more hesitation… I'm going to Orochimaru… he will give me more power… much more than now… and I will become not just powerful enough to kill Itachi… I will become invincible!!" at that, two large palm-like wings sprouted from Sasuke's back.
'Alright, that curse seal had made him gone completely insane.' "Sasuke… you're truly are foolish… power isn't anything… power came from hate and sadness can never make you gain true strength."
"I don't care… All I want is power. Power that surpass you, surpass Itachi, surpass anything in this world! As long as I have power, I don't care about anything else!"
Sasuke went quiet at that. Frowning, he thought about the pink haired kunoichi. 'Sakura…'
"She loved you Sasuke… more then everything in this world… I too love her… but the look in her eyes… She shed tears for you Sasuke. I can see there is no place for me in her heart aside being just a friend. But at least I want to see her happy and it's you Sasuke. You're the one person that could make her happy."
"Sasuke." Naruto stretch out his nailed hand. "For Kami's… no, for Sakura's sake, please. Just stay the hell away from that snake freak, and return to Konoha, to her."
"Sasuke!!" Naruto was completely mad now.
"I've made up my mind, Naruto. Orochimaru will give me power… in which I need it!"
"…Then I'll crush them."
"If that power that Asshole had given to you had tampered your mind so much, then I will crush them. I will show you how puny that power to you." Rage was evident in every word that escaped from angry Naruto's trembling lips. 'KYUUBI!!'
Meanwhile, 2 minutes ago, somewhere in Otogakure…
"What is it Orochimaru-sama?"
"Get some men and go to Sasuke-kun's place, ASAP."
"Why now, Orochimaru-sama?"
"…I believe that the sound five had done its job. I presume Sasuke is within the borders of the Fire Country. It'll be easy to acquire Sasuke-kun."
"…But I thought you said that Sasuke can get here by himself?"
"Perhaps… But I'm afraid I've made a miscalculation on the way…"
"…what would that be Orochimaru-sama?"
"Can you not feel it Kabuto? That monstrous chakra…"
"Now that you mention it, I just felt it also. It really send chills down to my spine… it makes my old blood boils again. I wonder who it is…" the silver haired spy sent a devilish smile, while veins start to appear in his eyes. "…I wonder who he is… I would like to meet him, fight him, KILL him…"
"Ku ku ku ku… no wonder you don't know… its Naruto-kun's…" Kabuto's smile wicked even more.
"No need for more men then…"
At this, Orochimaru look at his silver haired servant with an amused glare.
"…because… if this old blood boils even further…" here, Kabuto was trembling in excitement as he licked his lips. A wicked killing intent emanating from him that sent shiver even to the snake sannin. "I might kill them all…"
"Ku ku ku… excited aren't we… so be it than…" almost instantly, Kabuto disappeared from sight. 'Ku ku ku ku… my apprentice… my servant… how strong are you really?'
…WHAT IS IT KIT? I'M NOT DEAF YOU KNOW.
'You said something about the youki you gave me, suppose you increase the amount, how long can my body lasts?'
…ABOUT 2 MINUTES AT TOP.
'More than enough to kick that bastard Sasuke's ass. Do it!'
ARE YOU SURE? YOU MIGHT KILL HIM…AND YOURSELF AT THAT.
'Better I kill him rather than let that Orochimaru bastard plays around with his mind!'
'JUST DO IT! If I die, I'll make sure to let you out. And when you do, take a VERY warm visit to that Snake Sannin's village would you?'
…ALLRIGHT. HERE GOES NOTHING!
A gigantic swirl of blood red chakra engulfs Naruto. It cause the temperature seem to increase a great deal. The rocks around Naruto start to melt. Sasuke gulped at the sight. The moment the swirl had finished, he saw Naruto, covered in flames with the same purple red aura as before. The flames took shape into a two tailed demon fox. He could've sworn there is something about him that resembles the sand demon, Sabaku no Gaara.
Meanwhile with Naruto. 'Kami… it burns me inside out!!'
I TOLD YOU IT WILL BE DANGEROUS. END THIS QUICKLY IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DIE IN VAIN!!
The pain effect him greatly that he couldn't help to give a pained expression on his face. This doesn't go unnoticed by Sasuke. Who also frown as the after effect of the transformation starts to kick in. 'Che… this body… I can't hold it for too long.' "Hem… seems like both of you and me are quite alike."
"That powers of yours too… of course there's always a risk…"
"Do you know Naruto? This place… is called the valley of the end. For both of us, this is indeed the perfect setting."
"Is that all?"
Sasuke shocked to say the least.
"I'm asking you is that all? I hope you won't regret it 'cause that'll be your last sentence!"
"Not so keen on taking me back alive now are we?"
"If I can't bring you back, then during the last minutes of what probably my life as a ninja, I will do what a shinobi should do when facing a missing Nin."
'Haku-chan, Zabuza-san, Sasuke… I'll see you all soon in hell. Farewell, Iruka-sensei, Sakura-chan, Konohamaru… everyone.' "PREPARE TO DIE, SASUKE!!" The Chakra, following Naruto, bellowed: JIGOKU KATON: TAIYUU MAKAI NO HIKARI!! The chakra flames released a dozen of medium sized fireballs, before 7 of the fireballs shot out showers of laser beams towards the mutated Uchiha.
Terrified by the magnitude of force, the Sharingan user used his wings to get out of the blasting zone, only to be shocked when he saw Naruto on top of him, a flock of fire balls are ready in his palm, Chakra palm to be exact. The chakra controlled flames had surrounds Naruto's arm, turning it into a monstrous demon arms. Naruto roared before throwing another barrage of deadly burning lasers towards the Sharingan user. He barely managed to dodge them all. However, the barrage severed his clothes, and at that burnt a bit of his wings.
'Gah!! How much power did he possessed… he could still damaged me in this state?!' "Katon, Gokyakuu no jutsu!!" a huge fireball, twice the size of his usual fireball burst from his mouth. Much to his dismay, the chakra AGAIN absorbed his attack. 'Shit! I should've known. Katon jutsu is out of question here…' he dashed towards the fiery blond before swiftly plant a kick on the blonds chin.
The next second, he appeared behind Naruto, sending a powerful roundhouse kick that hit him full in his ribs, followed by a fist to his stomach, and another on his chest, before slamming him to the ground with another roundhouse kick. "Shishi Rendan!! (Lion Combo!)" When Naruto hit the ground though, his body popped into smoke. 'Shit! A bunshin?'
"Oi!" Sasuke turned his head to meet head on with Naruto's foot, which send him down to ground. When he landed to the ground and tried to stand up, the ground crumbles and hundreds of burning red Naruto welcome him with powerful kicks and punches that send him sky-high. "U! ZU! MA! KI!" When he looked up, he was again welcomed by thousands of Naruto, all throwing kunais and shurikens. Using his wings, the Uchiha avenger protected himself from the incoming barrage. Before he could open his wings, the army of berserk Naruto sends thousands of punches and kicks that seemingly covered his entire body. "NARUTO RANRAN MUGEN RENDAN!! (Naruto Burning Infinite combo!!)" Two clones jump in front of Sasuke and shot another: "JIGOKU KATON, KITSUNE ENDAN!" This burned his wings out before explodes and send him towards the cliff.
When being slammed to the walls, Sasuke could have sworn that he heard all his bones screams in pain. He splat lots of blood. 'Gwah!! I can't take this anymore… I have to end this now!!'
The same though ran across Naruto as he made all his Clone disappeared. 'The pain… Kyuubi… how much chakra we have left… or rather… how much time we have left?'
WE'RE RUNNING LOW. ENOUGH FOR ONE MORE BARRAGE OF KITSUNE ENDAN THOUGH. I SAY 5 SHOTS AT TOPS. WE ONLY GOT LESS THAN A MINUTE LEFT. Just then, Naruto feels his left arm gone numb.
'How much needed to create a full powered Rasengan?'
DEPENDS ON HOW STRONG YOU WANT IT TO.
'As strong as you can give me!'
ROGER. HELD OUT YOUR HAND. MY CHAKRA WILL DO THE REST.
Naruto do as told. Then a red orb began to form in his palm.
Sasuke concentrated all his chakra to his hand. A black lightning appears in his pale blue fingers, before forming into a devilish dark ball of black lightning.
"Well Naruto, I think it's finally the ending. This battle. Yes… the battle… until now…" Images of their previous battles appear in both of their heads. Both closed their eyes before jumped in unison.
"YOUKAI NO RASENGAN!! (DEMON SWIRLING SPHERE!!)"
"YAMI NO CHIDORI!! (DARKNESS THOUSAND BIRDS!!)"
Both attack slammed each other, before forming a large energy sphere.
Copycat Nin Kakashi, who just heard about Sasuke's disappearance, were dashing through the woods looking for his renegade students when the surge of the monstrous clash nailed him on his toes.
'This chakra is… terrible!!'
Kabuto, who was watching the whole thing a minute ago had this mad grin plastered in his face…
Somewhere on the valley…
"Uzumaki Naruto… incredible… you tap into the power far deeper than I could imagine…"
Sabaku no Gaara was watching the battle unfold in his vary eyes. Next to him, is none other than Rock Lee.
"N… Naruto's flames of youth are incredible!! It engulfs him so that even I can see his passionate and youthful flames of determination!! If I can't make others see my flames of youth, I will run around Konoha 10000 times on my hands!! And if I can't do that, I'll do push up with my finger in one hand 15000 times!! And I'll… I'll…"
Leaving Konoha's beautiful green beast junior to his own ramblings, the Shukaku's host watch the battle to unfolds and await the victor.
The sphere continues to revolve in the battered battle field. Inside the sphere, the Rasengan and the Chidori are battling for dominance. Finally after a few crucial seconds, the attack enters. Sasuke's Chidori slammed into Naruto's chest, while Naruto's Rasengan found its way to Sasuke forehead, creating a gash on Sasuke's forehead protector, before explodes and disrupting the Chakra sphere they're in.
The chakra sphere explodes with a blinding light. The last thing Sasuke saw is Naruto's face… which is full of regret and sorrow…
The light came out.
Naruto stood on the ground. His clothes were barely intact. Burnt mark spread across his body. Some of the fox features are still intact. Lying in front of him, no longer mutated, is Sasuke. His forehead was scorched, and there is this big gash on the Konoha symbol.
"Heh… who's the hot shot now… loser?" Naruto smirked before the pain comes again. "Gwahk!! Cra…!" Naruto spit lots of bloods on the ground… He was soon on all four, coughing blood. Kami… it burns so much!! The sudden pouring rain doesn't help as much either. '…Kyuubi…'
I'M SORRY KITLING… TIME'S UP…
His voice are filled with… sadness? 'Okay, now I know I'm going to die…'
'Right… get ready… I'll release you soon, and remember what I told you…'
'What? Don't tell me you got a problem about being free?'
…WE GOT PROBLEM HERE… HE'S STANDING RIGHT BEHIND YOU…
"Ku ku ku… Well done, Naruto…"
"Wha… KABUTO!!" rage filled him again. For a moment, he forgot all the pain he suffers for now as chakra flared again… for a moment before died down, followed by another wave of immense pain. "AAAAGGGHHH!!" This time, Naruto couldn't stand it anymore as he falls on the ground. He coughs more blood, while Kabuto chuckles evilly.
"You came here for Sasuke?"
"Yes… and no."
"W… What do you mean?"
"I didn't come here for Sasuke only… I came here for you too Naruto-kun…"
"You're… going to kill me… aren't you?"
"I was expecting that you still had enough power to entertain me… but apparently I'll just have to be satisfied with an easy kill…"
"CURSE YOU TO HELL!!"
"Ku ku ku… no matter how powerful you are… you're still only human… with just a flick and…"
Before Kabuto could strike a deathblow, something halts his movements completely, before a green blur appear and kick him square on his face, sending him a few meters away from his target. Naruto had his eyes widened, when he saw who had saved him. '…sand…? It… can't be…'
"You sir have no honor!! No warrior should attack another who no longer can fight!! I, the reincarnated Konoha proud beast shall call for your challenge on behalf of my fallen comrade!!"
"Uzumaki Naruto, we meet again."
"Naruto-kun!! I compliment you!! You uphold your honor!! I, the Konoha Green Beast, am deeply moved by your unyielding determination of keeping your lifetime promise to Sakura chan!! Allow me to take it from here!!"
"Stay put, Uzumaki Naruto. You won't be able to kill him."
"I… know… just… kick his butt for me would you…"
Both answered in unison: "Roger."
"Ku ku ku ku… I see now why Kimimaro had fallen…Sabaku no Gaara!!" The Orochimaru's right hand laughs maniacally. "I too wish to battle you!!"
"Prepare to pay for what you had almost done to Naruto with death. Sabaku Kyuu!!(Desert Coffin!!)"
Several large hands made of sand appeared and almost grab Kabuto. Using his Chakra Enjitou (Chakra Scalpel) he made an opening on one of the sand hand before bursting through the encirclement. The first thing he saw when he gets out of the encirclement, however, was Lee's foot up close.
The kick sends him a few meters off the ground before landing with a sickening thud on the charred ground. "Ha ha ha… HA HA HA HA HA!! This is fun! Both of you!!"
The same thought flows within their heads: 'Masochist?'
"My… old… blood… is… BOILING!!" Okay, now Kabuto really looks like a maniac now… until…
"Kuchiyose: Doton: Tsuiga no Jutsu!! (Summoning: Earth Element: Tracking fang!!)" The ground around Kabuto shattered, revealing a group of Ninkens (Shinobi dogs) that bite and severely injuring Kabuto while nailing him in place.
"Ah… Finally… the legendary copycat Kakashi… it'll be fun to fight all of you!!"
"Confident aren't we?" Kakashi appeared and another sound of thousands of chirping birds flows through the air once more…
"Kakashi-san!!" Lee bellowed.
"Kabuto prepare to die…!" Kakashi was preparing to stab the Konoha traitor with Chidori.
"Don't think… you've won yet!!" With the greatest ease, Kabuto smashed all the ninkens and before anyone could stop him, he smears his blood on his left hand before making a series of hand seals. "Kuchiyose no Jutsu!!"
Stood before them, was the giant Boss of Snakes: Manda.
"OI!! YOU'RE THAT OROCHIMARU'S BRAT, AREN'T YOU?? YOU BETTER GOT SOME GOOD REASON OR I'LL…"
"Shut the hell up…" Kabuto emanates a wicked killing intent that shut the snake out of his wits. That leaves Kakashi, Lee and even Gaara's jaw dropped.
'What killing intent!! To be able to shut a fierce summon like Manda with it… Who is he…Really?'
"Kill them... Manda!"
"H…HAI…" As Manda prepare to give his strike towards the bewildered shinobis, a loud "KUCHIYOSE NO JUTSU!!" awakens them from their trance.
Kakashi turn his head in shock when he no longer sees Naruto… but rather… two large webbed foot. He tilted his head to find himself face to face with the boss of toads and his former sensei's summon, Gamabunta.
"The frog… It's Naruto!"
"W… WHAT DID YOU SAY?" to say Kakashi weren't shocked is an understatement.
Just then, his student voice bellowed on top of Gamabunta. "KAKASHI-SENSEI!!"
Within second, Kakashi was next to his now… dying student. "…!... Na…. Naruto!!"
His condition was horrible. Charred in every part of his body, he had lost his entire fox feature, but several horrible burn marks appears in all over his battered and bloodied body. A damp scent of flesh being burned is evident in the air around him. Yet with all that, he's still… smiling.
Kakashi was trembling in sadness. The memory of Obito died for him flashed again in his mind… "Na… Naruto… No…" His eyes were already on the verge of tears.
"Hey… you're late… Kakashi sensei… you didn't manage to watch me beat Sasuke senseless…"
"Kakashi sensei, he's still alive… over there."
"Naruto… don't talk anymore… it's enough…"
"It's alright… Kakashi-sensei… Hey, listen… when Sasuke wakes up show him this, will you? And tell him… I've won the bet." Naruto weakly gave the copycat Nin, Sasuke's battered forehead. In which Kakashi receives with trembling hands.
"Na… Naruto… enough… you could die…"
"No… it's alright… when I spoke to that stupid Fox… He said I will die after all this… It's all right. I've already prepared to die anyway…"
"No!! It's all, my fault… If only I come faster…"
"Hatake Kakashi!!" Naruto surprisingly bellowed. The copy Nin went silent. "It's not your fault… it's your nature after all. Heh, Heh." Cough cough
"Naruto! That's it; I'm taking you back to the village!"
"NO!! Kakashi-sensei! That Kabuto will chase you down! His boss wanted Sasuke! Take him out of here first!!"
"What about YOU?"
"Just leave me cough and go! I'll hold him as long as I can!!"
"NEVER! Naruto!! You're coming with me, one way or another…"
"WATCH OUT!!" Gamabunta bellowed before jumping, dodging Manda's dash. Suddenly, Kabuto jumped from Manda right on top of Gamabunta, trying to kill Naruto. "Naruto kun… DIE!!"
Before the Konoha traitor could do anything, his arm, which was once aimed to Naruto were gripped in sand. "Sabaku Kyuu… Sabaku Sousou!! (Desert coffin… Desert Funeral!!)" Blood splattered from what was once the traitor's right arm. "Hatake Kakashi! Now!" Gaara bellowed on top of his sand cloud.
"EAT SHIT YOU TRAITOR SCUM!!" Kakashi screams now… something he hardly ever done before… "CHIDORI!!"
Taken by surprise, the attack hit him full on Kabuto's hips. "Agh!! Curse you… Kakashi!! Very well then… I'll pull down for now… but I'm taking something with me!!" Before anyone could stop him, the silver haired Otonin grabs Sasuke's unconscious form and jump back to Manda. "Manda… we're leaving…" the large snake immediately out of sight…
"SASUKE!! cough!!" Naruto falls unconscious.
"NARUTO!!" Kakashi grab him immediately and checked his pulse… "No… his pulse weakening…"
"Uzumaki Naruto…" Gaara land next to Kakashi, Lee followed soon after. Pakkun, one of Kakashi's ninken are also present.
"Why… Naruto… why must like this… is your fate… the fate of the Uzumaki clan… is inevitably death?" Kakashi now start pulsing Chakra to Naruto's heart. "In such place…"
"Yes… It's ironic… isn't it?" Gamabunta frowns as he spoke.
"What do you mean?" Gaara looks confused, including Lee.
"…It is said that a long time ago, two very powerful shinobi fought here. The battle was so great; it scarred this place and eventually, forms this river." Kakashi look around at the now crushed statue. Rain still continues to pour, as if signing they also saddened by the result of that battle. "If you notice, the flow of the river never stops. It continuously flows endlessly… to mark their battle."
Lee look in awe at the two battered statue, while Gaara continue to ask, "And these two statues are those two excellent Shinobi?"
"Yes. Eventually, Konohagakure was built by the ones who share the fate of these statues…"
Kakashi look once more at Naruto's weak body… "Naruto… Sasuke… your lives… are remarkably like theirs… Naruto? ...NARUTO?!"
Kakashi hurriedly checked his pulse once more… he found none.
"Naruto? Oh no…"
"So, how was it go?"
"I sense two demonic Chakra in the borders of Fire country. It is, unmistakably, him."
"Indeed… Kyuubi no Kitsune."
"What should we do, Kira?"
"I need to see the Jinchuriki first. Then, I could make a decision." A man, wearing a cloak that covers all of his body, and his face aren't visible enough in a straw hat (Think of it as Akatsuki's straw hat, but wider minus its features) with a Gashed Konoha symbol on it, nods.
"Might as well take care of the Shukaku then. From what I heard, the Jinchuriki is in Wind Country, but now he's in Fire Country."
"Indeed. Not to mention there is a dangerous group in the human world that hunt over the Bijyu (Tails Demon). So far they've captured two of them."
"So fast… Can any of you do an investigation on this... group?"
"I'm on it right now."
"What about the Kyuubi?"
"I'll go to the last place the Youma strikes. That would be the hidden leaf village, Konohagakure."
"Be careful Kira!"
"I will. This indeed is going to be a nostalgic journey… wonders what happen to that village now."
How was that? That's my version of Naruto Sasuke duel scene. Hate it, like it? By the way, Kira you see here is indeed Kira Yamato from Gundam SEED. I only rip the name, but he will be a little bit OOC here… Anyway, Read and Review. P.L.E.A.S.E. I'm on my knees here… T T help!
By the way, who should I pair Naruto with? Though romance for our blond hero will come later…
