Some people think that mythical creatures don't exist. They Also think that they are Vicious and bloodthirsty. But I can prove them wrong!
Oh, who am I? I'm the famous Uzumaki Naruto; next in line to be Hokage, and Konoha's greatest-
"Oi! Kyuubi! You're not supposed to be in this story!"
"I can be in any story your in, brat. I have to be."
"And why is that?"
"I'm inside you, Baka, or have you forgotten that?"
"No, I didn't forget that! And stop calling me Baka!!"
"Good. Now will you leave me to start this story?"
"Fine! I give up! You can start the story, Baka Kyuubi."
"Haha!!! I win! Ok, now that our fight is over. Start the story, brat."
"Didn't you want to start the story?"
'Two can play the talking in our minds game, Naruto!!!'
"Alright, I'll start the story!"
The day was like any other Monday in Konoha, really. The sun was shining, people were allover the streets, and the Past Hokages that were carved into the distant mountains had their heads held high as they watched over the small town. I was walking to the ramen shop with my friends, Kiba and Shikamaru, after school like we always did. I ordered the usual three bowls, Kiba two, and Shikamaru one. The only thing different was the questions they started asking me.
"Man, I had a great time at the movies yesterday!" Kiba said, giving the last of his Ramen to Akamaru. "Hinata kept getting scared of the chainsaw massacre, and kept hiding her head! It was awesome!"
"You better not have scared her half to death, dog breath, or I'll have to kill you!" I told him. Hinata used to have a crush on me in grade school, but slowly started to like Kiba instead because of me. Boy, I'm good when it comes to getting people together!
"Troublesome…" Shikamaru said, picking at his food with his chopsticks.
"What did Ino start being a pest in the middle of your date?" Kiba asked. Bored expression still on his face, Shika said;"… I blame Naruto…" I swear how he can keep a straight face like tha- wait WHAT!
"Why blame me!?"
"Cause you were the one who said I should ask her out. Too troublesome…"
I just stood there in shock. 'Ok, so it's 50/50. I can get half of relationships right, and half wrong.'
"Oh yeah, Naruto, you've never told us who your girlfriend is!" Kiba said.
I gulped. I'd never told anyone that I'm gay because most of my friends are homophobic. This also includes Kiba and Shikamaru…
'Think, Naruto, THINK! You can pull this off, just think! Ok, maybe if I tell them I have no girlfriend, they'll get off my back!… Not likely. Kiba might, but Shikamaru's not stupid. Ok, then why don't I tell them It's a long-distance relationship!… I've never really been out of Konoha. I could tell them that it's… Sakura! She'd… Probably beat me to a pulp if she found out I said that…well, it's A, B, or C, and I choose…'
"I don't have one yet." Wow. Nice answers I give… especially for making them wait for five minutes!
"Naruto Uzumaki… Konoha's greatest couple radar… has no girlfriend!?" Kiba said, obviously shocked. I nodded and bent my head like I was waiting for a big whollop on the head… It never came…
I looked up and saw both Kiba and Shikamaru… Smirking!? 'What the hell!? Since when do they BOTH smirk???'
"Looks like we have to play matchmaker now. Who do you think would be a good match for Naruto, Shika?"
"…Sakura?" he said, bored face put back on.
"Hmm… No, she's too mean to Naruto. How about TenTen?"
"… She's going after Gaara…" he said.
'I don't believe this! My two supposedly best friends are trying to steal MY job!' "I can find a girlfriend by MYSELF! Don't forget it!!!"
"Oh really? Then let's make a bet. I'll give you two months to get a girlfriend. That means if you don't get one by the end of school, I'll go all around the school and tell your secret to everyone."
"You wouldn't dare." I knew Kiba better than that, and he knew how secret my secret was. The truth is; I still collected stuffed animals like pink bunnies and blue bears. Having no parents can make you really lonely…
"I would. And I'll also MAKE you take a stuffed animal to school to prove it." Kiba was so evil!
"Fine! But If I win?"
"I'll give you my necklace that you've always wanted" … Alright, I'm a sucker! "Deal!"
"Troublesome." Shikamaru said, walking away.
"I gotta go, too. I have to write down the bet and put it on my to-do list." …To do list? What the hell!?
"Whatever. See ya later, Kiba."
I came into my apartment and crashed on my couch… literally. It took all my strength just to get to my bedroom much less change out of my clothes.
'… I'll wake up early and take a shower tomorrow… too tired.' My body took control of my mind, and I ended up falling on my bed in nothing but my boxers, and falling into a deep sleep at 7:00.
I woke up and looked around. My bedside clock said 11:57. Just lovely... 'Jeez! I haven't even slept for four hours! Why am I awake!?… Must be from the shock about Kiba telling everyone my second deepest, darkest secret If I can't find a-'
Ding! Ding! Ding! Midnight… the time I thought I was going clinically insane. The time my eyes went wide and I jumped to the ceiling. The time HE spoke.
"Hey Dobe, stop talking to yourself, It's not healthy." HE said. It was dark, so I couldn't get a good look at his face. But from what the moonlight allowed me to see, his hair was pure black with a blue tint, and his skin was a beautiful pale color.
"Wh-who are you?" I asked the beautiful guy.
"…So you really did forget me…" He said just barely enough for me to hear. Thinking he didn't want me to hear, I ignored it, and tried hard to focus on his face. It didn't work…
"My name is Sasuke Uchiha; and you'd better not forget it. You will be seeing a lot of me, count on that."
"R-right. M-my name I-is…"
"Naruto Uzumaki." I just stood there, trying really hard to stop my eyes from popping out of their sockets. 'H-how!? How can a guy I just barely met… know my name? No, better question, why is this guy in my house!? And why am I not calling the police!?'
"You can relax, Dobe, I'm not going to hurt you."
"Why do you keep calling me Dobe, you Teme!!!"
"Hn, you haven't changed a bit."
'Haven't…… changed? What was that supposed to mean? I've never met this guy in my entire life! And yet, I feel like I know him better than Baa-Chan!'
Just then, I heard something that sounded like a whistle.
"Damn it, I have to go…" he then turned back to me and… HUGGED ME!!! "Naruto… you deserve so much more than this torture… I'll be back very soon. Wait for me… in your dreams." Then, He left without another word.
I was running. Running from the villagers as they started to attack me from no where at all.
"You EVIL child! You killed your mother when you were born, and your father, the fourth Hokage was destroyed from protecting YOU! You're nothing but a MONSTER!"
"But I didn't do anything, Nana! I didn-"
"No more excuses! I'm giving you to the Hokage!!!"
"But Nana! NANA!!!"
Next thing I knew, I was stuck in the orphanage… and I broke the vase that belonged to the owner.
"Your Grandmother was right. You ARE a WICKED child!"
"But I didn't do it on purpose!"
That's right. The woman was a friend of my Nana's. She always starved me and when anything at all went wrong, she blamed me for it…
"YES YOU DID, YOU UNGRATEFUL BRAT!"
"Who is this ungrateful brat?"
Then, Iruka Sensei saved me…
"Iruka! This is the little demon!!!!"
"He doesn't look like a demon to me." That was the first time I ever saw someone give a glare that wasn't at me. The first time in my life… that I had actually felt happy.
"Well, Fine, TAKE HIM! All he's ever been is trouble to everyone!"
"Alright, I will!" He picked up and walked me out of the orphanage.
Next I was moving out of Iruka's place…
"But Iruka Sensei!"
"Naruto, we talked about this. You are only moving two doors away from mine. You need a place of your own, because I'm running out of room."
"…yes Sensei…" after that, we both regretted me moving away…
"Looks like the monster finally went and got his own place!"
"Good. All the more reason to trash it!!!" … and that's what they did, along with beating me half to death.
After that, Even Iruka got distant. But then I met Sakura, Kiba, Shikamaru, and found out Hinata had a crush on me. They became the only family I really ever had, and I stuck to them like glue. But then I found out I was gay…
"Hey Kiba" I asked. "What would you think if any of the people you knew were gay?"
He choked on some ramen. "Probably never talk to him again! I really don't like the idea of two guys together... Why, do you know someone who's gay that I know?"
I gulped. "O-of course not! I just wanted to know what you would think, that's all…" It scared the crap out of me for months. I avoided my friends as much as possible, and only really went outside my house for ramen and school…
Then, the real nightmare began…
"WHAT!? So all the time you didn't have a girlfriend… it was because you were gay!?" Kiba said. Yes, Sakura, Kiba, and Shikamaru all found out.
"I agree with Shikamaru! It IS disgusting!" Sakura said that…
"I'm with both of them! I'm outta here!"
"But… wait you guys!!! Please don't go!"
And then… something utterly weird happened…
Sasuke… was standing right in front of me. I still couldn't see his face, but I knew it was him. His hair, his skin… It all screamed out the guy I had met…
"Ar-Are you gonna leave me too?" I was crying my eyes out. I wanted someone with me; anyone! I didn't care who it was right now…
"Now, why would I leave you? I'm not going anywhere." Then, he put his arms around me…
Next thing I knew I was sitting up in bed, 6:00 in the morning with my alarm clock playing 'GO!!'
"Naruto, are you feeling alright? You look kind of pale…" Kiba asked. At the time I was telling myself that Sasuke…Sasuke wasn't real. He was a figment of my imagination, nothing more… It wasn't working…
"Huh? No, I'm fine. Just… thinking too much."
"That's not healthy." Shikamaru said. I gritted my teeth. Sasuke said the same thing last night…
'I've got to get him out of my head…' next thing I knew, Sakura was screaming her lungs out.
"We have to go save Sakura!!!" I yelled. I ran to the classroom before anyone could stop me, and ran into a… excited Sakura???
"What's the matter, Sakura!? Is it a fire, someone got hurt, WHAT!?"
"Naruto? What are you talking about? I was squealing 'cause there's a new student!!! And he's REALLY Cute!" she said while squealing.
"Oh…" I went in and took my seat. Soon the bell rang and in walked Kiba and Shikamaru.
"So what was Sakura screaming about?" Kiba asked me.
"Apparently there's a new stude-"
"Class, I'd like to introduce a new student. Iruka sensei said. Even though he was no longer my adopted father, he became a school teacher to watch over me.
"Please come in here…" My throat formed a lump. The person standing at the door…
Was the one and only…
Well, that's it for today, I guess.
What!? NOO!!!!! Kyuubi, did you discuss this with Taru?
Yes, brat, and she said it's alright to stop here.
Wha! But it's a cliff hanger!!!
I wanna know what happens next!
….like I said, your point?
…I hate you…
-Is watching the whole thing with amusement- so……REVIEW!!!!!! If you don't review I'll sick Kyuubi on you, and if I get flames, they will be given to Kyuubi to add to his collection! I REFUSE to read them!
Constructive criticism is much appreciated, though! THANKS FOR READING!!!
Next time: Naruto faints, we get to Sasuke's thoughts, and we introduce Kakashi, Shizune, Neji, and Gaara!
