Alone in the Dark

Memories going through his mind... Sorrowfull, painful, hateful memories… all those things that made his life a living hell. Reliving it every night, never knowing when he would wake up. Knowing that the hours would take eternities to pass by. Not knowing if it really was a nightmare or if it all really was happening over again. Pain and suffering all the time. Not a moment of rest. Not knowing if he would make it through… or not…

Voices shouting at him…



"Stay away from us!"

When he tried not to listen, the shouting just got louder. There were figures screaming at him, calling him things, mocking…Shadows pointing at him, laughing at him… someone was poking him, pulling his hair and clothes. Little hands—children's hands, pulling him down. They laughed at his misery. He didn't want to hurt them, he couldn't, they don't know what they are doing.

"No, please… Stay away… Just stop…" his voice drowning in their laughter, silent tears of plead falling from his eyes…

"Get away from him!" a strong voice cried .

The children ran away, still laughing, leaving him there alone in the mud.

He is staring at two feet, a man towering over him.

"Thank…" He starts, but gets a kick in the stomach before he can finish the sentence of gratitude.

More kicks came. Pain swelling throughout his whole body as he got lifted up in the air, like a punching bag by two strong hands as more people join in.

"You stay away from the kids you monster!"

"You are a disgrace to our village!"

"Your not one of us!"

"Why don't you just die, you disgusting little beast!"

Blood flowed out of his open wounds as he fell to the ground. Pain shot through him as he landed on his shoulder.

Not being able to move, he just lied there as the cold rain flooded down on him, washing away the blood and dirt. People passeing by him, staring, whispering amongst themselves and sneering down on him.

He couldn't take it anymore. Finally he pass out due to the unbearable pain.

For a second.

Pain still lingered throughout his whole body, completely cold and soaked, he slowly and silently gets up. There is no one there to help him. No friends. No family. No one. He starts walking, but where can he go? Searing pain shoots through him at every little movement he makes. His arms, legs, head, chest… His heart.

Some people avoid him, trying to walk as far away from him as possible.

Those are the people he actually likes.

Others who pass him by, try as many times as possible to trip him, push him, make him falter…

Why? Why was it always like this? Why did they despise him? The hate in their eyes… for no reason?

A deep voice starts laughing in the dark, threatening, evil, out of nowhere.

He falls as darkness devours him, as everything disappears.




Shadows all around him.






"Get away from us!"



A dark laughter.




He screams.

Screaming as he fell out of bed.

A dream… Just a nightmare. He's drenched in sweat and tears. His head, his body, his heart, aching.

Lightning shoots through the night sky, causing the shadows to dance in the room, hteir arms stretching out after him. The wind causes whispering voices as the rain hits the windows.

He sits back down on the wet bed, pulling his knees up to his chest, lying his forehead on them, while tears fall freely from his bloodshot eyes, his shoulders shaking as he sobs loudly. Pained, scared, alone… Always so alone…


The door shoots open with a figure standing there, drenched wet by the rain, panting.

"Naruto, what's wrong?" he says, walking over to the blond on the bed, concern evident on his face.

"Sensei?" Naruto asks, sitting up streight in bed, trying to dry away his tears, almost choking at his own words, his voice not able to hold.

Kakashi sits down beside him on his bed, gripping the boy and holding him tightly against his chest.

"S-sensei...W-what are you…"

"Don't worry, Naruto." Kakashi interrupted as he stroked the blonde's shin, drying away the tears, kissing him lightly on the forehead.

"It's ok, I promise."

"K-Kakashi-sensei…" Naruto choked out and let himself melt into Kakashi's embrace, tears falling, letting it all out.

Whispering soft words of comfort and caressing the crying boy, Kakashi gently kisses away Naruto's tears, his hands gently stroking the boy's hair.

Soon the sobbing decreased and Naruto's breathing got steadier and calmer. Kakashi's arms holding him, comforting him and keeping him safe. Naruto knew that now, at this very moment, he was safe, that nothing could hurt him. As he slowly drifted off to sleep he could hear Kakashi's soft voice, whispering reassuringly, "I'll never leave you, Naruto. I promise."
