mutters Don't worry, Sasu-kun. I'll love you forever...
The teenager sighed, as he walked into his shabby apartment. He
silently closed his door, not wanting to hear angry shouts from next
door for being too noisy. The teens' stomach rumbled as he glanced at
the small kitchen in the corner of his living room. With another
defeated sigh, he stalked over towards the cupboards, and pulled out
the only substance of food it looked like he had.
With a somewhat a brighter face, he pulled off the lid partway, and
emptied the packets of flavour and dehydrated peas and carrots. After
he put on the kettle, he shook of his orange and black jacket onto the
floor of the kitchen, and kicked it onto the tan coloured carpet of the
living room. Folding his bed into a couch, he slumped down, and reached
toward the radio, hoping is favorite music was on. He made a face when
he heard the classical music pouring out of the speakers. Shutting the
electronic box off, he stood back up, and went to his small porch. He
leaned against the bars, and looked up at the dark sky.
He looked down to see a young woman walking down the street. Jeez,
lady. It's not very safe to walk out at this hour... The boy thought,
and shook his head. Still gazing at the lady, he saw two shadows
creeping up from behind. He looked to see who they were, and saw that
both guys were holding pocket knives' behind their backs with sick
grins on their faces. He looked back, worriedly, at the woman, and saw
that she didn't notice that anything was creeping up from behind.
Swearing under his breath, he went back inside, grabbed his jacket, and
keys, and ran out the door.
As he reached the bottom, he could hear the men talking to the woman.
"Konbanwa, onee-chan. Having a nice stroll?" said one of the guys.
"We are too, and we thought you could join us for a little fun,"
grinned the other.
"Please leave me alone," said the girl, the street light elimunating
her frightened face.
"Oh, don't be so mean, onee-chan. We won't harm you. Much..." said the
guy, slowing taking out the knife he had hidden behind his back.
The blonde-haired teen crouched behind a wall in an alley, watching
the whole conversation. He saw the lady back up a few steps, as both of
the men took out their knives, and slowly walk towards the frightened
Taking a deep breath, he leapt out from his hiding spot. Landing
behind the two men, he opened his mouth, "Hey. Why don't you both take
a flying leap of a cliff? I don't think the world will miss you two
The men turned towards the speaker, and their grins got wider.
"Seyo, do you see what I see?"
"I do, Riku. A small vermin who doesn't know his place," Seyo replied,
"Do you know what we do to vermin who don't know their place, kid?"
Riku laughed, pointing with his knife hand at the blue-eyed boy.
"Why don't you show me?" the teen smirked, his hands curling up into
Seyo's grin faltered as he growled with annoyance, and leapt forward,
trying to stab the boy.
But then he reached his target, the boy vanished.
"What the..." he managed to say, before a fist, which had just come
out of nowhere connected with his face. Seyo flew backwards, hitting
the wall behind him.
He glanced up, wanting to see what had hit him so hardly, and saw the
boy. Riku ran towards Seyo, and pulled him up. They both now stared in
a scared way at the teen, who had turned towards them.
"If you don't want me to kill you both, I'd advise you to get the fuck
out of here," he glared at them.
Just as the men started to run, Riku glanced back, and said "What is
your name, you little punk?"
The teen smirked "I wouldn't normally answer that, because you haven't
introduced yourself first, but its Uzumaki. Uzumaki Naruto,"
Seyo yelled back at Naruto, "We'll get you back someday, Uzumaki
Naruto. You just wait,".
Watching the two men disappear down the street, Naruto turned back
towards the woman, and was shocked to see her staring frightenly
towards Naruto. He hadn't expected that, because he had just probably
saved her life.
"Onee-san, are you ok?" he stepped towards her, wondering what was
"I just saved your life. Can't I get a thanks?" he said angrily.
"Who would want to thank you, monster?" she snapped back, meeting his
His eye's widened with shock, as he hadn't heard that word for a
while. He thought the villagers had accepted him. He thought he
wouldn't have to hear that word directed towards him.
He hadn't heard that word since...
"Get away from me!" the lady's voice became louder, and snapped him
back from his thoughts.
"No..." he whispered, as the womans' eye's widened. "Not until you say
The lady became angrier, and thought "He killed my sister. I can
avenge her death, right now, and say it was in self-defense. I could
say that this monster attacked me. I can avenge Naomi's death right
She looked up at the boy that was called Naruto. Her eye's softened,
and she smiled, "Arigato gozaimasu. I'm sorry for what I said. I
thought you were... someone else," She had trouble saying that last
bit, but managed it.
With another forced smile, she held out her hand, and said, "I'm glad
to have met you, Uzumaki Naruto. My name is Takana Karoki,"
Naruto looked relieved, and shook Karoki's hand. Then she opened her
mouth again, and laughed a bit. Looking somewhat embarassed, she asked
him to walk her home, in case those bad men came back. Naruto agreed,
and started to walk beside her.
Though Karoki's mind ran though what she had planned, and she hid the
smile that creeped onto her face. Taking numberous turns, she led him
towards her house, which was on the outskirts of Konoha.
"Thanks for taking me home," as they arrived to her house, "But I feel
like I should give you something. Just saying thank you doesn't cut it
Naruto laughed, "It's ok, Karoki-san. Thanks is good enough for me,"
"No, no, Naruto-kun. I'll feel bad if I don't. Just wait a sec, right
here, ok?" she smiled.
Naruto looked interested, and nodded his head. Karoki turned towards
her front door, and unlocked it. Walking in, she dropped her coat, and
purse. Gazing around, she walked towards her bedroom, and yanked open
her closet. She pulled out a old dusty box, which was full of her
deceased sister's belongings, that included a number of weapons, for
her sister was a ninja. Was...
Karoki choose the sharpest kunai she could find, and stood up. Turning
towards the door, her gaze landed on the window. Shaking her head, she
turned towards the door. Karoki thought she saw a orange flash flying
past her window, but she knew Naruto was still outside her front door.
She could see him from here.
Hiding the kunai, she opened the front door, and smiled shyly at
Naruto. He look confused as she walked towards him, blushing, until he
could feel her warm breath on his face.
"Er...K-karoki-san...What are you...?" Naruto was interupted when
Karoki put her finger on his lips.
"Call me Karoki-chan, Naruto-kun. And I'm saying thank you, silly,"
she said, moving even closer.
Karoki smiled at Naruto's confused face, and wrapped her arms around
his head. She pulled his blonde head towards her face, and kissed him.
Naruto tensed up, but relaxed and kissed her back.
I like this gift thought Naruto, enjoying his second kiss ((his first
was Sasuke... I loved that part)).
Just as they broke apart for air, Karoki grinned, somewhat evilly.
Naruto gave another confused look at her, and wondered what she was
going to do next.
A shooting pain from his heart startled him. His eye's widened as he
felt something cold and wet start dripping down his jacket. Looking
down, he saw that Karoki had thrust the kunai into his heart.
"That's for my sister, you monster," she hissed at the dying boy,
looking into his watery eyes, "Now die."
Naruto crumpled to the ground, and lay still. Karoki felt scared
because she had just killed for the first time, but accomplished
because she avenged her sister's death.
"Now, that wasn't a very good thank you present, was it?" a dark voice
chuckled from behind.
She whipped around to see Naruto, looking somewhat darker with his
"H-h-how is t-that p-possible?" she gasped, looking back at the other
Naruto. The dead one.
Naruto laughed a bit more, the full moon making dark circles form
under his eyes. With the slight wind blowing from the north, he looked
like a angel. The angel of death.
"Your quite silly, Karoki. Nobody can mistake me from anyone else. I
don't look like anyone else. Second off, I think I'm the only one in
this town people call... monster," he grinned, making him look even
"And it's Kage Bushin no Jutsu I used. I am a ninja, stupid,"
Karoki heard a POOF behind her, and spun around to find that the dead
"Ku ku. So, lets recap, shall we? You just tried to kill me, neh?" she
heard him laugh even more darkly behind her.
"I-i...I d-didn't.." she turned back to Naruto, backing up a step when
she saw him look livid at what she had said.
"You didn't mean to? Oh, so it was an accident that made you have a
kunai hidden on your person, then accidently pull it out and stab me in
the heart?" he growled.
Karoki gasped when she looked back into Naruto's eyes. They were
purple. But they were blue before, it makes no sense she thought. She
turned and started to run down the street, when she heard a teasing
whisper You aren't going to get away.
She ran five blocks without stopping. She looked back and saw nothing
but the dark shadows of housed, looming over the moonlit street.
"You aren't going to get away that easily, Karoki-chan," she heard
She whipped back around to see him standing one foot in front of him,
grinning at her shocked face.
Karoki became angry, for she remembered again that this boy had the
reason her sister was dead inside him. If Naruto died, Kyuubi died.
"Monster..." she whispered, looking at the ground below.
"Hm? I didn't catch that," Naruto said casually.
"I said... You are a monster! Don't you care that you have a demon, a
beast, a killer locked inside of you?!" she screamed shrilly at him.
"No, not really. Because he isn't here anymore," Naruto sighed.
"He died. He used all his energy to save my life, and died," Naruto
looked a bit sad, as he turned his gaze back up to the darkened sky,
"But that is, not before... giving me a goodbye present,"
Karoki's curiosity got the better of her. "What present?"
Naruto shook his head suddenly, and started laughing. Not the kind of
laughing you hear when something's funny. The kind of laughing you hear
after a mad man did something horrid and got away with it. Naruto
doubled over with fits of insane laughter, and Karoki went as pale as a
ghost when he suddenly stopped, and looked down at her.
"Everything. His powers, chakra, speed, and even the way he looked,"
he grinned, pointing at his eyes, ears and hair.
Karoki's gaze shifted over his eyes, ears, and hair. His eye's were a
darkened purple color, almost red. His ears were pointier from normal,
human type ears. And the tips of his hair looked like he had dyed them
"But, we're getting far from the subject at hand, Karoki-chan. You
tried to kill me. What would you do if someone tried to kill you, but
failed?" he asked, giggling silently when her face got paler.
"I'd k-k-kill t-them..." she whispered, her eyed filling with tears.
"Correct," she heard him say, before a hand shot out for her neck.
Just as she was going to say goodbye to her world, and her life, the
hand stopped. She looked up at the teen who was about to take her life,
and saw him looking sadly at the woman.
"I'm sorry, onee-chan. If we hadn't met like this, I'm sure we
could've been friends," as the hand started to continue towards her
Karoki gasped when his hand reached her thoat, becoming tighter, and
her vision blurred around the edges. She stuggled with no prevail, and
looked at her would-be killers face. He didn't look angry or insane.
His eye's looked full of hurt and sadness. Karoki tried to tear her
gaze away from the threatening pools of darkness, but she couldn't. She
made a mistake. He wasn't a monster.
He was only a boy.
As her vision became dark, he heard him whisper.
Hari: I suck at writing.
Gaara: No you don't. It's a very good story, so far, onee-chan.
Hari: flying glomp no jutsu LUFF GAA-CHAN!
Naruto: I seem quite eviler than normal, Hari nee-chan. Nande?
Hari: Muha for angstyness. Don't worry. You only going to be like this
when you are alone.
Itachi: I'MA GURL!
Hari: Right you are there, Itach-kun.
