Disclaimer- Naruto does not belong to me, sadly
A/N-Written for the naruto100 lj community's "Fire" challenge.
The body's combusting, every inch of skin searing, every ounce of blood boiling.
Everything is red; bloody, shifting red.
I said not yet!
The air is Hellfire; the breath is boiled away before it can reach his lungs.
God damn you, I said not yet!
The Snake- evil bastard stole my friend- is smirking, laughing, driving the burning to unbearable heights.
Not until I rip his throat out! Not until I kill this asshole and bring Sasuke back!
How much farther are you willing to go?
Whatever it takes.
Naruto's eyes open.
A fourth tail emerges.
