If you read, Tradgedy Strikes Their Depressive Lives, this is what I changed it to. Same characters, diffrent plot. Sorry if you were looking forward to the old one. I have no idea what's happening in this new story, but when i find out, I'll tell you what was supposed to happen in the old one.
Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto.
She stood there, letting the soft, chilly, autumn wind blow back her onyx hair. There was a slightly smoky scent to it. She watched as two newly fallen leaves chased each other passed the open window.
"I can't believe we actually live here." The girl thought to herself. "How could my parents just leave Kumogakure like that, what about all of our great memories?"
She clenched her fists, and glared at the city of Konoha with spite.
"It's not like this town has a great history or anything either. I mean, they've been attacked by a tailed daemon, just like Kumo, assaulted by the sound village, and their Hokage died recently. If you ask me, this whole town is a foundation for a total mental meltdown!"
She threw herself down on her new bed and stared up at the ceiling in thought. She sighed heavily.
"Might as well get over it, nothing we can do now." She whispered to herself. She heard her sister calling her from another part of the apartment.
"Atsumi, get your butt over here now!" Maya called as she sat in front of a large, unhooked, television.
"Yes, sister oh mines?" Atsumi asked as she rounded the corner into the peach colored living room.
"I need you to help me set up our new TV" Maya said as she wiped her brown hair away from her forehead.
"Okay. So, how do hook up this stupid thing?" Atsumi asked, walking over to sit next to her sister.
"Don't call it stupid! It's the last thing we need to set up, and I don't want bad karma destroying anything!" Maya said.
Atsumi shrugged her shoulders, "Technically, we still have to move things into the rest of the house, but, you know, who even pays attention to the other three rooms. Not to mention anyone ever looking over the couch to the kitchen area." she remarked sarcastically.
"Oh just shut it and hand me those wires in there." Maya said, pointing to the box that the TV had been in.
Maya and Atsumi worked for about a half hour trying to figure out which wires connected into what and where when a sudden thought dawned on Atsumi. She stopped reading from the TV owner's manual and looked around the living room, listening carefully. When the only thing she could hear was her sister grumbling about the TV, she realized that they were the only ones in the small apartment.
"Hey Maya, where are mom and dad? And what happened to Tsukiko?" She asked.
Tsukiko was there older sister by one year.
"They left to go grocery shopping. I'm guessing it'll still be a while before they come back since we have no food at all in this dingy little shack." Maya replied, now flipping through the pages of the owner's manual herself.
Atsumi had to admit, their apartment was kind of small. The little flat only consisted of one bathroom, two bedrooms, and their living room and kitchen sharing a room. Apartments these sizes are usually meant for families of two or three, not a family of five. Having to share a room with both of her sisters was going to be hell. The three sisters were as different as night, day, and afternoon. Atsumi tried not to think about it and continued to help Maya with the television, which was just about set up.
They had just set their, now working, TV on the table when there was a knock at the door.
Atsumi walked over to their front door and looked through the peephole. From what she could make out, it looked like a spiky haired, bright yellow duck was in the apartment complex hallway. Curious, she opened the door to find, not a duck, but a boy who looked about her age. Atsumi had to squint at first from the blinding colors of the boy's neon yellow hair and bright orange jumpsuit.
"Hey, I'm Naruto!" the cheerful boy said with a huge grin. "I live in the apartment above you."
"Oh, cool. I'm Atsumi, hang on a second." Atsumi replied. Turning around to face back into her own apartment, she yelled, "Maya! Come here and meet our new half neighbor!"
"Did they bring cookies?" Naruto heard a voice ask.
"Did you bring cookies?" Atsumi asked him.
"Umm, no. Should I have?" Naruto asked worriedly.
"No!" Atsumi yelled back through the door.
Naruto heard footsteps and a brown haired girl popped up in the doorway.
"Oh well. Howdy neighbor, I'm Maya!" The girl said, giving him a sweet smile. Naruto realized that she didn't really expect him to bring cookies and relaxed a bit.
"I'm Naruto, I live upstairs from you."
"Nice." Maya said.
"Hey, you want to go out for ramen?" Naruto asked excitedly. Hopefully he could use this as a way to make up for not bringing them any baked goods.
"Sorry, we would if we could. But, we can't." said Atsumi, "Our parents are still out grocery shopping and we don't know when they'll be back."
"Oh, okay. Well, welcome to Konoha, see you around!" Naruto said, giving them another huge grin and a wave as he walked down the hallway towards the stairs.
"Bye!" The sisters said as they closed their apartment door and got back to cleaning.
Naruto jumped from the stoop outside the apartment into the chilly afternoon overcast. He looked at his watch to check the time.
"Ten after four!" He exclaimed, "I was supposed to meet Kakashi Sensei ten minutes ago!"
Naruto bolted down the road towards the training field, leaving clouds of dust in his wake.
"I wonder if Kakashi Sensei will let me off the hook since I was being polite to new villagers." Naruto thought to himself.
Okay. That had PARTS to it that were the same as the original, but I added stuff too. Hope you liked it!
