…I know what you are going to say. I'm an idiot for making yet ANOTHER story while I have TONS of other ones I haven't even come CLOSE to finishing. Sorry, but I couldn't help myself. I have major writer's block, and I just couldn't get this idea out of my head. Hopefully, this will inspire me to write more for my other stories. I hope you enjoy it! Oh, and let's pretend that, for all intents and purposes, Orochimaru DIDN'T have his arms sealed off by the Third. And the beginning of the story takes place near the end of the Searching for Tsunade Arc.
Prologue: A Brave New World!
The battle was coming down right to its end. And Naruto, with the help of Jiraiya, Tsunade, and Shizune, was able to get the upper hand against the vile Orochimaru, and the traitor to the Leaf, and Orochimaru's right hand man, Kabuto.
"It's…it's over…you Snake-Freak!" Naruto panted, out of breath from the intense battle, and glaring at Orochimaru. "Now…Now you pay for what you did to Old-Man Hokage!"
Orochimaru, glaring right back at Naruto, declared. "No, Naruto-kun. It's not over. It'll never be over until you die by my hand, and the Leaf Village is burned to the ground!"
"Sorry, old friend, but your ambition, along with your life, will end here," Jiraiya said, as he, along with Naruto, surrounding Orochimaru from two sides, began to power up the Rasengan, intent on finishing the Snake-Sannin once and for all.
Kabuto could only watch on helplessly, as the earlier Rasengan Naruto had delivered incapacitated him.
But Orochimaru was far from finished.
"I don't think so, Jiraiya! I still have one last trick up my sleeve!" Orochimaru exclaimed. Right after he finished talking, his hands flew into multiple hand-seals.
Tsunade was very alarmed at this development. She knew that Naruto and Jiraiya were very tired from the fight, and need a little more time to complete the Rasengan.
"Oh, no you don't, Orochimaru!" Tsunade shouted, rushing to sock the Snake-like human in the jaw.
"Too late, Tsunade-hime!" Orochimaru shouted, before completing his final hand-sign. "Forbidden Jutsu: GATE TO ANOTHER WORLD!-!-!"
Orochimaru slammed his hands onto the ground, and jumped back. Soon after, a HUGE, white gate shot up from the ground, and the doors flung open, a strong wind beginning to suck anything, and everything, in.
"What the heck is THIS?-!" Naruto shouted over the roaring winds.
"I have no idea! This is the first time Orochimaru has used a jutsu like this!-!" Jiraiya shouted back.
"Hahahahahaha!-!-! Yes, get sucked into that gate, and be gone from this world FOREVER! With you out of the way, nothing will stop me from destroying the Leaf Village! NOTHING!" Orochimaru cackled madly.
"Ugghhh!!" Naruto grunted, trying to stay anchored to the ground with his Chakra. But the winds were too strong, and soon, Naruto was sent flying towards the gate. "AHHHHHHH!!!"
"NARUTO!-!" Jiraiya, Tsunade and Shizune all shouted.
"Farewell, boy!" Orochimaru declared.
"Don't think I'm going alone, Snake-Bastard!" Naruto declared.
Before Orochimaru could reply, he felt a tap on his shoulder.
Tensing up slightly, he turned around to see a grinning Naruto clone right behind him.
"Special Delivery!" The clone declared, before kicking Orochimaru right above the gate…
And to the real Naruto, who socked him in the jaw…flinging him right towards the gate.
"No…NOOOOOOO…" Orochimaru screamed… right before the gate swallowed him up.
"Take THAT, you freak!" Naruto declared… right before he noticed that the gate hadn't closed yet. "WHAAATT!-?" I thought that the gate would close if the creator of it got sucked into it instead!"
Sadly, for Naruto, he was dead wrong.
"AHHHHH!!!" Naruto screamed as he got closer and closer to the opening of the gate.
"Brat! Take my hand!" Tsunade said, having rushed to Naruto's side. Naruto did so, and Tsunade tried to drag him away from the powerful gate. She almost succeeded as well.
That is, until that flying tree branch hit both of them square in the gut.
"AHHHHHHH!!!" Both Naruto and Tsunade shrieked as they were flung right into the gate, vanishing like Orochimaru had.
"Naruto! Tsunade! NO!" Jiraiya shouted, diving towards the gate. But before he made it, the gate vanished as quick as it came, leaving him to land face-first into the ground.
"Damn… I was too late…" Jiraiya muttered, getting up from the ground.
"Jiraiya…what happened to Naruto-kun and Tsunade-sama?" Shizune said, looking on the verge of tears.
"I don't know, Shizune-san… I just don't know…"
"Uhhh… Ow…My head really hurts…" Naruto said as he began to regain consciousness. He sat up and saw Tsunade still unconsciousness on one side, and Orochimaru in the same state on the other.
"So, we got sent here with that Snake-freak as well, huh?" Naruto said to himself. He stood up, albeit a bit shakily, and looked around.
They were in a huge forest clearing. There was a waterfall, huge trees, sparkling water, and a town that he could see far off into the distance.
As Naruto took in this sight, he could only think one thing.
'Something tells me that we're not in Fire Country anymore…'
And that's the opening! I hope it interested you into wanting to read more. And as soon as I get over this stupid Writer's Block, I'll continue to update my many other stories! Until then, Catch you next Continue!
