Hey guys, it's me, Shagnasty214, and although this is my first fic, I'm an avid reader. I've had this idea stuck in my head for so long and it's bugging the hell outta me!I really want you guys to honestly review for me and tell me how to improve. You can flame! You can tell me I suck or whatever but at least tell me why. Constructive Criticism appreciated!This story is going to be a decent length story. That I guarantee. I plan to update soon in between chapters and the chapters are going to be pretty decent lengths also. But What I DON"T have, is pairings... yet. I'm still undecided on this. I was going to make it a NaruSaku, but now after I've written it, I don't know what to put it as. You guys should tell me what the pairings should be after you read, uhuh! OOOOO and also. Hidan and Kakuzu are going to be ALIVE. So I don't wanna hear any complaints cuz I need nine akatsuki members. You might complain about it but I don't want to make OC's if I don't have to (although I undoubtedly will).

Summary: Naruto, heartbroken, leaves Konoha at 16. Five years later he returns, but not as everyone expected. Now, a leader of Akatsuki and their village, Naruto must make peace with Konoha or be forced to destroy it. Undecided pairings. Naru saku? Naruhina? Narusasu?RR



Kyubbi – Inner Sakura – Whatever the hell I want

Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto, but damn, that would be hella tight if I did! On with the story already!

Demon's Return

Chapter 1

"Leader-sama, it's been a while hasn't it?"

"Yes, it has Itachi."

Two men in Black Cloaks with straw hats stood on a branch just outside the Hidden Village of the Leaf overlooking the gate. Anybody passing by would know enough just by looking at them that these were no people to mess with. A light breeze blew by swaying the cloaks in the wind, and just then, seven more figures dressed similarly appeared behind the two.

"Eh, Itachi? It's been a while for you too, hasn't it?" said Kisame while sneering.

"Hn." Was his reply.

"Might I ask again? Why do we need to have an alliance with this pathetic excuse for a village, Leader-sama?"

"I would be careful Tobi. That's my former village you're insulting. And to answer your question we need an alliance with Konoha because without it our village is more prone to be attacked by other Hidden Villages", the mysterious figure at the front explained.

Tobi bowed. "My apoligies. I am truly grateful for what you have done for all of us Leader-sama."


All nine of the figures waited there ominously next to each other. The breeze still lightly blowing there cloaks. They watched as civilians constantly walked in and out of the gate, paying no heed to the nine people in the trees. The two Konoha Shinobi at the gate were greeting the people as they pass through, completely oblivious.

"You'd think they would have been alerted to our presence by now, hmmm Kakuzu? For shinobi, they don't seem to have a very good security system." Hidan inquired.


"Bahhh. Who cares what you think? I just hope that there's a fight. It's time to show these shinobi the true meaning of art! It's a BANG!"

All the other eight people looked back at him as if he had another hand growing from his face.

"…ehhh, ummmm…, I m-mean" Deidara stuttered.

"You really need to shut up with that art crap cause it's just plain annoying." The woman with blue hair known as Kanaki stated.

"hnn." "agreed…" "well said." everybody else concurred.

"You guys just don't understand my art.."


Everyone looked at the distinguished "Leader" at the front who was laughing. Surprisingly for a group this feared, the mood was relatively light-hearted. Ever since the replacement of the Leader three years ago, the organization had grown to trust each other and become friends.

After he had finally settled down he wiped his eyes. "You guys don't know how much it means to me that you choose to come with me. I don't know how I'll ever repay you."

"Nonsense!" Zetsu exclaimed, "After you freed us from the old leaders curse, I'm sure there's nothing we could do to repay you Leader-sama."

"Geez! It's been three years and you guys still haven't stopped calling me that! How many times do I have to tell you, just call me by my real name."

"Alrite… Naruto" Itachi said

"There, that's better."

Naruto then decided to take his straw hat off. His golden hair reached nearly down to his shoulders now. In fact, besides the note that his whiskers were a little darker, he was the spitting image of the Yondaime Hokage. He sighed as he put his hat back on. "It's better not to have my face be seen till later."

Naruto put his hands inside his pockets and sighed. This place could really get his emotions stirring.

"Itachi," he said dropping his head, "as the leader of Sanatogakure, I'm supposed to have my village's best interests at heart, but now that I'm here, I'm wondering what Konoha will think of me? Will they accept me as an accomplished young man, or will they still scorn me and call me demon? I don't know if I can bring myself to kill these people. Especially the ones that were close to me. Will Sakura-chan have forgiven me yet?"

"Naruto" Itachi sighed, "I can't tell how they feel or what will happen when we go inside." He cleared his throat, "But I can tell you this, whether they accept you or not, we will always trust you."

Everybody else nodded, saying they agreed with Itachi.

Naruto sighed.

"Thank you. I will do my duty as Kage to defend and put my village's best interests at heart."

The Wind became more rapid and the hats of Akatsuki were on the verge of falling off, then, as soon as the wind came, it died.

"It's time."

Then the nine figures disappeared towards the gates.

'It's been a long time since I've been here. A long time since I've seen them...'


"Sakura!" Barked Tsunade while stumbling into the room. She was out of breath, "They're back."

'Oh my god' "They? You mean he's back?" Sakura asked tears in her eyes.

A nod of her head confirmed it.

"Sasuke-kun!!!!!" She screamed while she flew through the door and scrambled down the stairs towards the gates.


"You're really heavy, you know that, teme?"

"Hn." Was his reply. He barely had enough life in him to mumble.

"You know they won't exactly let you go without punishment."


"But I'm sure after they hear your reasons they'll probably tone it down a bit."

Sasuke groaned, 'even after putting another hole in his stomach, he just can't give up can he?' his mouth formed a faint smile.

'Thank you'

"Arg," He grunted as Naruto almost tripped on a stone.

"Don't worry. We're almost at the hospi-"


Naruto looked towards the sound of the scream and to his surprise, Sakura was running up to him, tears in her eyes. She gasped as she looked at the damage Naruto did to Sasuke. She came over and…


"What did you think you were doing?! Trying to kill him?!"

"Sakura-chan I-"

"Don't Sakura-chan me! I don't want to hear your excuses Naruto! Maybe the villagers are right to scorn you! Because of YOU, my Sasuke-kun is half dead!" she sobbed.

'She's right. I shouldn't have gone all out. What have I done?'

"And also, why didn't you bring me along, huh? I thought you trusted me? I could have helped, you know. Maybe if you weren't so god damned careless Sasuke-kun wouldn't be in this condition!" She screamed.

Here words stung more than she would ever know. Or maybe she did know, and that's why she was saying it.

"I do trust you. I just didn't want you to get hurt. Sakura-chan, you know I would never hurt you-"

"What do you think you're doing huh?!" she retorted, "Naruto… I thought you said you'd promise to do your best to make me happy. I guess it isn't true that you always keep your promises…"

I hung my head down, too ashamed to look her in the eyes.

"You just didn't want to bring me cause you thought that I'd be a burden. Well, guess what Naruto? I didn't train under a Sannin for nothing, you know? The only reason I ever trained with Tsunade-sensei was so that I COULD be a help when it came time to bring Sasuke-kun back!

"You're not a burden. You could never be. How could someone as beauti-"

"Don't try flattering me, Naruto! If you didn't think I was a burden then your actions would have proved it!

"But I-"

"Everyone hates you Naruto. This whole damn village hates you!!! Why can't you just do us a favor and leave! At least then this village would be rid of its DEMON!"

Then she took Sasuke off my back and stormed straight to the hospital, leaving me in the middle of the street with blood running over my whole body.

I sank to my knees, not being able to comprehend what she just said. I gasped "Demon". No. Not my Sakura-chan- 'Don't Sakura-chan me!'. She didn't mean it I told myself. But still. It hurts. I put my hand up to my cheek and touched where she slapped me. It didn't hurt physically, more on the inside. 'She hasn't hit me in so long'. 'She's just overwhelmed with him coming back and all'

'You keep telling yourself that boy.'

' Just shut up!'

'You knew this would happen. You knew that as soon as you brought him back she would leave you'

'I said shut up you bastard fox!'

'Why don't you make me? Sasuke has always had her heart from the moment she laid eyes on him.'

'No. We're engaged. She would never leave me. She only said that because of all the emotions that came up because of Sasuke coming back. She smart enough to realize that she loves me'

'Whatever you say. Then why would she take Sasuke to the hospital and leave you out here in the rain? Huh? Tell me!'

'I-I. I don't know-'

'I sure do. It's because she's still in love with Sasuke!'

'You're wrong! I'll make it up to her by buying her flowers when she gets better. She still loves me! SHE STILL LOVES ME!!!!!'

'Whatever you say…'

Tired and bloody, I fell forward on the wet pavement, falling unconscious.


When I woke up, all I could see was bright white.

"Where a-am I?" I stuttered, still only seeing this bright light.

Then a voice broke the silence, 'You're in room 407 of Konoha hospital."


"You've been in here for about a week. I dare say even you can't just get up and stroll around after having a hole in your chest."

Suddenly, my vision became clear and I saw Jiraya standing over me with a smile on his face. "How ya doing boy? Apparently you're free to leave now because of your furry friend inside of you," he chuckled.

It all came back to me then. The reason why I was here, my fight with Sasuke, the hole in my chest and… Sakura-chan.

I looked up at him. "Anybody visit me while I was out?"

He answered, "Yea! The whole Rookie Nine and Ayame, Teuchi, Iruka, Garra…"

"Sakura-chan?" I said while cutting him off.

He just looked away for a moment, then looked back at me, "You should probably get up and get out of here. You never did like being in hospitals." Then he walked out.

' She didn't visit at all? Has she calmed down? What if something happened to her? Where was she-'

'I know. Probably with the Uchiha.'

'She just hasn't seen him in years. I'm sure she just missed him'

'Yea, maybe. But you're her Fiancé for crying out loud! You think she'd at least give a shi-'

'You don't think I realize that! I don't even know what's going on anymore…'

'Well then, maybe you should buy her flowers like you said.'

'Yea might as well. Oh, Kyubbi?'


'Uhhhh… Thanks.'

'No problem kit'


'It's good to be out of that place' I thought as I walked out. I stretched out my arms and took in a big breath of fresh air. 'It's also good to be back home. That mission took nearly four weeks didn't it?' I started walking down the road towards Ino's flower store.


I looked back and Neji, Lee, and Tenten came running over to me. I stood and waited for them.

'At least these guys don't hate me'

"Naruto-kun, I heard about the fight with you and Sasuke. Congratulations on winning! Your youthfulness still shines bright!" Lee practically shouted.

"Will you SHUT UP with the youth crap!" Tenten screamed, "Don't you agree Neji?"

"I guess…"

"Oh, thanks anyways guys, but I'm just not in the mood." I said while looking down. I started walking off.

Neji, Lee, and Tenten all looked at each other before nodding and running after me.

"Hey, Naruto." Neji said while turning to look at me, "Why don't we talk about it over some ramen, eh? I really haven't gotten to know you much, but ever since that fight at the chunnin exams I've been beginning to realize what makes you so strong."

"Oh," I said interested, "What's that?"

"Then it's settled," Tenten agreed, "We'll talk about it over some ramen!"

"Thanks guys"

"No problem Naruto-kun, we'll always be here to help keep your youthfulness shining bright!" Lee exclaimed

"Will you SHUT UP!" both the Hyugga and the weapons mistress yelled.

Naruto smiled.


Naruto walked away from the ramen stand feeling a bit better.

'What makes you so strong Naruto,' Neji said, 'is that your heart is so big.'

'He believes in me. A Hyugga actually believes in me. Neji, you don't know how much it means to me that I still have people who don't take me for granted in this village. I think I'm finally beginning to make more friends. But still… Sakura-chan…'


"Naruto?" Ino said looking a bit concerned?

"Ahhh! Crap! That hurt like a bitch!" I yelled while holding my forehead.

"Yea, I think that walking right into my store's front window would rattle you a bit. What were you doing anyways?"

"Actually, I was on my way to your shop to buy a couple flowers for a certain somebody."

"Wait, wait, wait! Lemme guess. Forehead girl?" Ino said.

I nodded my head.

"Awwwww! That's so sweet!"

"Yea, she's really mad at me for beating up Sasuke that much and I want to make it up to her. Have you seen her lately?" I questioned.

"Well, to tell you the truth, I haven't seen her since Sasuke returned. You don't think she still has feelings for him, do you? She's engaged to you."

"I hope she doesn't still feel that way. I don't know what I would do without her." Naruto sighed.

"Well," Ino said while putting her arm on my shoulder, "do you want to talk about it?"

"Nah, I think I'll just get my flowers and go talk about it with Sakura-chan." I answered.

"Hey," she said while giving me a hug, "Why don't you come down and get some coffee with me, Chouji, and Shikamaru? God knows that lazy-ass could use some!

I couldn't help but blush with a girl this beautiful hugging me. When she broke apart I just chuckled, "Why not?"

"That's more like it!" she exclaimed and took my arm and started pulling me towards the coffee shop that the others were in.

'Man I have some good friends I thought'


"Uchiha Sasuke. Hmmmmmmm… Room 212"

"Thank you." I said and walked towards his room with my flowers and a card in hand.

'I wonder if she's even in there. What am I saying, the nurse said that girl hadn't left the room ever since he came.'

' What if she slaps me again?'

I stopped walking

' Nahhhhh. She has to have gotten over it.'

I started walking again.

Room 212. I was about to open the door when I heard two people talking inside. I opened the door slightly and I saw Sakura-chan hugging Sasuke. I was about to run in there when-

'Stop. Just watch. It may reveal the truth.'

I watched and listen.

"Sasuke-kun," Sakura stammered while crying, "I'm so glad you're back."

"Shhhhh," Sasuke said while stroking her hair.

"I thought I'd never see you again"

"I'm sorry."

"Sorry?! You think that one word can make up for all the pain that you've caused me?!"

Then Sasuke did something totally unlike him. He took her hand and intertwined it with his own. Sakura gasped. Suddenly he stopped and looked down frowning at the ring on her hand.

"Who's the lucky man?"

"Ohh umm this? This stupid thing. Ummmm…"

"It's the dobe isn't it?" Sasuke said.

Sakura-chan didn't respond. He was about to turn away when she grabbed his arm and said, "Sasuke-kun, this doesn't matter. It's just a stupid ring, it doesn't mean anything. I haven't even married him yet, we're just engaged."

Then she took the engagement ring off her finger and threw it on the ground.

"I never really loved him Sasuke-kun, he's just annoying and loud. Sure I was dating him and I just didn't know what to say when he proposed to me, so I said yes. But don't you see? The only person I've ever loved, is you."

Their lips closed in together and touched as they started putting their hands up each others shirts.

A teardrop fell on the ground outside the door. Sakura didn't notice but Sasuke heard this and immediately looked towards the door while he was still kissing Sakura.

Teary blue eyes met onyx eyes.


My eyes met Sasuke's as I dropped the flowers. Time seemed to slow down as I took the ring off and laid it onto the flowers, my eyes never leaving Sasuke. My tears also fell on the letter, blotching the simple writing that said 'Sakura. Love, Naruto'

I needed to get out of here.

I ran out of the hospital, not caring where I ended up, as long as it was away from them. I just kept running and running, occasionally ramming into people. I ignored their threats and complaints about what they were going to do to me. Some angry villages were taunting me saying, "Ha! Look at the Demon of Konoha! Crying like a baby!" 'That's what I am. The Demon of Konoha.' After running for about thirty minutes I found myself on top of the Yondaime's head.

I screamed at the top of my lungs, "AHHHHHHHHHH!" I hit the ground with my fist making a small dent where I hit, "Why me? Why does everything bad always happen to me?!"

' Kit.'

'You were right.' I thought while bawling my eyes out 'You were right all along'

'I'm sorry kit.'

'You're the only one I can trust now Kyubbi. You're my only friend."

'What about the rest of the rookie nine?'

'They'll desert me after they learn about me being a jinchuriki.'

'You don't know tha-'

'Yes I do! Everybody else left me!'

'Jiraya didn't. Jiraya still believes in you.'

'Jiraya. Perhaps the only person I can trust now. WHY?! Why can't she just love me? Am I really that annoying? Why did she play me like that? I loved her and for Christ's sake we we're engaged! You think she would love me more because of that stupid promise I fulfilled. I would have died for her! Is there really something wrong with me?'


'It's you… she hates me because you're inside me right? I never should have told her. I never should have told ANYONE!'

'I'm sorry for making everyone hate you. If it's anything to you, I'm sorry for treating you so bad early on.'

'You don't have to apologize to anyone. You didn't choose to get stuck inside me.'

' Are you going to talk her?'

'I don't want to have anything to do with them anymore.'

'Even Sasuke?'

'Sasuke… He's like a brother to me. And he did nothing wrong, besides he loves her too.'

'Do you still love her?'

'… yea, how could I stop? But… she'll never be mine. I'm sorry for not listening to you earlier.'

'It's not your fault. So what are you gonna do now?'

'I don't even know. Maybe I'll-'


Suddenly stirred from my thoughts, I looked at the ANBU behind me. "Yes?"

"Hokage-sama wants you at her office immediately for debriefing. She looks rather upset."

"I'll be right there."


"WHAT THE HELL DID YOU THINK YOU WERE DOING?!?!?!?!?!?!?" she screamed at me as I walked in her office.

"Is that a trick question?" I replied, " I was trying to get Sasu-"

I got cut off do to the fact that I was sent flying through the wall. Her punches always hurt.

"I don't wanna hear your smartass mouth in my office you little brat. Do you know how much you put me and my entire staff through due to your leaving?"

I remained silent.

"Didn't think so! I was working after hours and sent needless shinobi into the field that could have been used for missions here! You better be glad that you weren't labeled as a missing ninja!"

She cleared her throat.

"Also, I was working damn hard trying to persuade the council to not send hunter-nins out for you. Do you know what would ha-"

"I got him back didn't I?!" I yelled.

"Yea sure you got him back, after disobeying a direct order and almost killing him in the process. Because I don't think you understand, Naruto. He's the LAST Uchiha. The very last one! And without him, we lose the Sharingan forever. Do you know how much that would cost this village? Too much."

She kept pacing around the room then suddenly slammed her fist into her desk breaking it in half.

"Maybe if you didn't have that damn fox in you then you could have brought Sasuke back here in one piece! Naruto, quite frankly, we can't afford to have someone that careless on our staff. And we definitely can't afford to have someone who is that careless become our Hokage."

"Our you sayi-"

"Naruto, I'm going to have to rethink my decision to choose you as my successor. For the good of the vill-"

"Fuck you old hag."

She stopped in the middle of her ranting and glared at me. "What did you say?!"

"I Said FUCK YOU BITCH! FUCK HOKAGE! FUCK KONOHA! What has this shithole ever done for me!"

"I'll teach you to mind that big mouth of yours brat!"

Tsunade moved right in front of him and tried to punch him in the face. Naruto swiftly caught the punch in his hand with ease, then punched Tsunade across the room. Naruto looked at his hands then back at Tsunade, then quickly disappeared. Tsunade wiped the blood from her lip and got back up but he was gone.

'I never thought that he'd actually hit me. Ughh. This is going to be a VERY long day'


"Yes, Hokage-sama."

"Did you see Naruto run out?" Tsunade said.

"Yes, he walked out a few moments ago. It was very strange though, his eyes were red."

Tsunade looked at the floor shaking.

'Oh my god, what have I done...'


I ran back to my apartment as fast as I could. I could care less about the tears in my eyes. The people in the street turned to look at me as I ran by. Some weren't the nicest looks. I threw open my door and walked inside, not bothering to close it, and started packing.

'Ramen… Check. Nightcap… Check. Ninja gear… Check.'

After I finished packing, I walked over to my desk and took out a sheet of paper. I needed to write a letter to everyone telling them how I feel. I began to write...

'What you're about to read is how I feel and is why I've left the village of Konoha for a different meaning in life instead of meaningless suffering.'

'I have nothing left for me here. All this place has ever done is bring me pain. First Sakura-chan was taken away from me. And now they're trying to take my dream?! I don't have any reason to stay anymore.'

'Tsunade. You think you would encourage me for trying to become hokage. But all you've done is tear me down. You said that a Hokage should do what's best for the village. Well, Hell! That's what I did when I brought Sasuke back!'

'Sasuke. Why?! Why does this whole village worship him? What has he ever done for this village? He's the traitor who left the village to go to our biggest enemy! But even after he's come back, everybody else still kisses the ground that he walks on. Well I'm sick of it! But Sasuke, It's not your fault. You'll never know how much you mean to me. You saved me from my lonliness. You were my first friend, that's probably why I was so relentless in trying to get you back. Don't feel bad about Sakura-chan. She obviously doesn't want me and if anybody else had to have her, I can't think of anyone I'd rather have be with her than you. I'm actually surprised I can tell you all of this without my pride getting in the way. You're like a brother to me, at least, that's how I feel. The brother I never had. Take care teme.'

'Kakashi, thank you for your Kage Bunshin training strategies. They are going to greatly benefit me in my training these next couple years. Don't feel bad about abandoning me for Sasuke in our early Genin days. You were the only one in the village who could train him in the Sharingan, and looking back now, I probably would have done the same thing if I was in your shoes. You're forgiven.'

'Ero-sennin. I'll keep in touch shortly.'

'And Sakura-chan... After all I've done for you? Is it ever enough? All I've ever wanted was for you to look at me the way you look at Sasuke. At least you'll be happy now that your demon is gone. I loved you, and you treated me like trash. You probably saw my flowers at the hospital door, but I saw... everything. How could you do that? I thought you loved me? How can you that say our engagement means nothing, that I mean nothing? I've been by your side ever since the academy, and all that Sasuke has ever done is call you annoying and tell you go away, but you still run to him after he betrays our village, leaving me out in the rain with blood dripping over my body! In a way, we're the same, you and me. While Sasuke was being mean to you, you were calling me annoying after hitting me and telling me to go away. But who ever liked me? Nobody likes a demon.'

'You guys take care of yourselves. Maybe we'll see each other again. Maybe... Someday.'


Uzumaki Naruto

I looked over the paper then set it on top of my desk for them to see.

'What are you doing?'

'I'm leaving'

'For good?'

'I'm done with this god forsaken village.'

'It's about time.'


'What are you gonna do?'

'Train to beat Akatsuki'

'What and who are you going to train with?'

'Well, for what, I'm gonna steal the forbidden scrolls from the hokage tower. And for who, I was wondering…'

' If I'd train you?'

'Would you?'

'Might as well. Nothing else to do.'

'Well we're here. All I gotta do is get the scrolls and get out.'


I snuck into the secret library in the Hokage tower, careful not to pull any traps that might have been set. In the back, I did a handsign, and then concentrated my chakra into my hands while I thrust my palm at a spot on the wall. The wall slid open and I walked inside, the scrolls laying before me.

'Let's see Forbidden scrolls… Here! There are four.'

'Kit. You might want to get the one labeled Hirashin no Jutsu.'


That was the Yondaime's prized technique along with the Rasengan.'

'No way?!'

'Hurry up and get them!'

'I'm on it!'

I took the scrolls, strapped them on my back and snuck out of the library as quietly as I snuck in. When I was outside the tower, I ran as fast as I could towards the gate of Konoha. I imagined I looked much like Jiraya with that giant scroll on his back. I passed Ichiraku, Ino's flowere store, the coffee shop, I didn't stop to look at them, even though I knew I'd probably never see them again. When I was at the gates I took a deep breath. I was about to run through the gates when a voice stopped me.

"Where do you think you're going?"

I slowly turned around.


He walked out from behind a bush, and looked at me quizzically.

"Those wouldn't happen to be the Hokage's forbidden scrolls now would they?"

"And what if they are?!" I yelled, not trying to be stealthy, "You're in no condition to fight me since it looks like last week's ass kicking is still taking its toll on you!"

"I'm not here to fight you. I'm here to talk to you."

"Sorry, Sasuke, but I don't have the time." I turned to walk away.

"No, no. Just listen. If you're leaving because of Sakura, I'm really sorry Naruto. She led me on and I-"

"Sasuke, that's only partly why I'm leaving. Talk to Tsunade if you want to know the rest. And Sasuke, you can't hide it. I know you love her. Maybe not as much as I do but her heart has always been yours. Just, please. Take good care of her."

Sasuke hung his head in shame. It hurt him so much to know that he was taking away so much from Naruto. 'Naruto, I would let you have her, but I love her too. I won't give her up!'

"You know you don't have to leave. You still have people who care about you in this village."

"Like who?"

"Neji, Tenten, Shikama-"

"Not after they find out about the Kyubbi."

"They'll still care for you after they find out!"

"Sakura-chan didn't." I said while looking away.

"I still care about you."

I turned around and looked him directly in the eyes. We stayed like that for a while. Then I walked up to him slowly and embraced him. "And you don't know how much that means to me." I said while crying.

"You don't have to leave."

"Wouldn't you do the same thing if you were me?"

Sasuke didn't say anything.

I walked slowly up to the gate when I reached it I turned around. Sasuke was still there.

"I promise I'll see you again. And I never break my promises." I stated.

"Good-bye Naruto."

"Good-bye… Brother."

Then Naruto disappeared out of sight

After a while Sasuke muttered. "Good-bye brother."

He slowly turned around and walked back to the Uchiha Compound. He figured he'd tell Tsunade when he woke up at around, oh...11:00 or so. He wanted to give Naruto as much of a head start as he could get.

End Flashback

Naruto stood before the gates of Konoha, reminiscing about his past.

'Soon. Soon I'll see you again… Sasuke'
