(A.D. 2007, New York City, USA...)
Lightning danced as Thunder roared throughout the heavens above, the rain poring down like the heavens themselves were crying as a red moon blared even in the denseness of the clouds. Only a few souls dared to even walk the streets of this dark lonely city tonight, all others had either left for other places or retired to bed for the night. The leader of the group soon stopped in front of a large building, he then held up a single hand, his dark cloak concealing his features behind a vale of shadows. He looked up into the sky to the top of a sky scraper and saw several more people, they stood in wait, one also cloaked in shadow.
"So I walk this lonely path once more, threw the darkness I do trek to face him anew... Our game now seems almost never ending, for so long we have played it, and it has never seemed longer..."
A man in a red coat with a blond girl by his side then vanished into the shadows beneath him, a tall black haired man took hold of a shorter black haired woman and made a jump to the height, a girl also in a cloak, which was aged and tattered, made her way up also nearly flying at her speeds and grace. The final two seemed to merely observe before also following, one jumping and climbing the wall the other seemingly springing up and moving with a distorted speed.
The leader's eye's became visible in the darkness of his hood, cool icy blue eye's cut threw the shadows to gaze upwards into the glowing blood colored orbs of the other man looking down from above. The eyes of both vanished within an instant and the first man lept up, a sword was drawn, the ebony blade shining in the darkness and gleaming a red edge. A glint of white was seen in the other hooded mans cloak, before he reached to his back and pulled a long sword free.
"How did it come to this, I've asked myself this question so many times, yet I am still unable to come up with an answer... All I know is that he must pay for his sins, for those he has felled and those who can no longer take up the fight against him...
The two lunged at one another, swords grasped tightly in their hands as the first swung his blade and his enemy blocked the oncoming strike. The two fell before pushing off one another's blade into a flip and landing gracefully on their feet on a nearby ledge. They stared at one another for a few moments, silence reigning over this field of battle. The silence didn't last as a mighty clap of thunder came forth, lightning arching down from the heavens above to strike the ground between the still fighters... "Still a weakling I see..." The first man's enemy taunted, his baleful red eyes glowering at him from beneath his hood.
"Yeah... Still the Teme I see..." The first man said his voice young yet weighed down by years of conflict and tragedy. The enemy simply chuckled lightly and rushed forward with blinding speed, the first man bringing up his blade and blocking the oncoming slash with amazing skill and speed.
"Over a thousand years ago, this same enemy was once my best friend, my brother even... But not any longer... Not since he took her from me..."
"Tell me... Tell me what is most Precious to you... So I can take it away..." The mans enemy said darkly, eyes steeped in madness, and the first man's mind briefly wondered to a certain blond girl with red eye's before his glowing blue eye's narrowed in rage.
"You'll never understand will you... There is nothing that isn't precious to me!" He roared towards his enemy, Knocking him back and then running towards him with great speed and clashing blades with him once more. The heat from their two swords heating the blade's, making them hiss as steam formed and they both both spun at the same time and went back in. Their swords clashing in beautiful arc's and powerful thrusts, their bodies moving almost as though in a dance more than a battle as they dodged and weaved threw one another's attacks, finally coming together their swords both vertically pointing upwards...
"You seem weaker than the last time we met in combat... Teme..." The first man said with a soft gentle voice, belying the fierceness with which he could fight. The rain was going full force now, coating all in it's drenching hail, the other combatant's were all also locked in combat, two on one in some cases... But not backing down as they fought their battle's, and their leader fought his own.
"I know now, that I should have stopped him all those years ago... I should have ended his ambition before it reached this point..."
"Maybe I am... But at least I'm not so weak that I protect those puny little humans you love so dearly... Brother..." The mans enemy sneered into his face and the first man pushed him back and curved into an arc slashing his enemies chest. Blood flowed for but a second before quickly healing and leaving only pale skin in it's wake.
"They may be puny... They may even be cruel and foolish... But without them we couldn't survive..." The man said softly, his voice melodious and gentle even in the heat of fierce combat. His enemy scoffed at the word's and jumped into the air, then performed several hand seals and his sword began to conduct lightning on it's own.
"What would you know?!" He demanded then lunged down towards the man. "You who refuses to become stronger! You who has let your heart rule over your mind! YOU ARE WEAK!! YOU ARE NOTHING!!!" He roared and the first man crouched and held his sword. His enemy laughed loudly and brought his sword close to the man in an arch...
"No... I am me..." The man said his own sword holding back the lightning empowered blade, glowing blue eye's gazing into the blood red of his enemy... "I am Naruto Uzumaki..." He said as his hood flew back and long white hair was revealed, an ancient forehead protector half covered by his hair. "And I shall protect everything... EVERYTHING THAT IS PRECIOUS TO ME!" Naruto roared shoving his blade forward to knock his opponent off balance. The hood of his enemy fell also, his blood red eye's glared at the blue eye's of his enemy, long spiky black hair that also curved to frame his face hung down his back.
"But I couldn't... Because in the end, we are the same at heart..."
The two could be considered opposites in ever way it seemed, save only a few features as the black haired warrior snarled and held his sword to the side before grinning widely. "So then... You still mourn her death? How long has it been since I took her from you and you still mourn for that WEAK Pathetic little reach of a mortal!" He snarled and rage flashed within the cerulean orbs of Naruto for but a moment before the fires were quenched.
"Over a thousand years..." He muttered softly and his enemy grinned madly.
"Yet you still cling to her memory and appose me! You still refuse to admit that WE deserve to rule this world. That the strong are the only one's who truly deserve to exist as we do!" His enemy announced arms spread wide. "Come Brother! Join me at last and forget that wench, live your life for the here and the now, not in the past!" He exclaimed and Naruto was silent for a time.
"Your right... I do have to stop living in the past..." Naruto admitted and his enemy grinned widely... "So first... I'LL KILL YOU AND END THE SUFFERING YOU HAVE BROUGHT TO THIS WORLD ONCE AND FOR ALL!" He roared and lunged at the man who hissed as Naruto slashed him along his side. The man bared his fanged teeth and blocked the next strike, blocking the white haired man's attack and pushing him off balance before flipping into the air and landing on a gargoyle.
"And now, after hundreds of battles, millions of lives lost in our blood feud I can finally avenge her... I can finally fulfill my promise and stop him at long last..."
"How dare you!" The man roared his body surrounded by a crimson aura as his eyes flashed dangerously. "I offer you the world, my friendship, and eternity in paradise and you spit in my face! And for what! A DEAD WHORE OF A GIRL WHO DIED OVER A CENTURY AGO MEANS MORE TO YOU THAN YOUR OWN BROTHER!" He screamed at the white haired young man who actually smirked and then crouched into a fighting stance.
"No not just for her... But for everyone you've ever harmed in all of your year's of living, for all of the people whose lives you and your corrupt dream, has ruined... It is for them that I must fight, it is for them that I must stop you!" Naruto said firmly, grasping the sword in his hands even tighter than before...
"But... No matter what... No matter how insane he was back then..."
The two combatants came together at the same time, Naruto gritting his own fanged teeth and grunting as his enemy pushed down on his blade. Naruto growled and knocked him back, jumping into a spin kick and knocking him back. His enemy hissed and lunged at the white haired man his sword. Naruto rolled out of the way and jumped up running along the side of the building, his enemy following as their swords clashed.
Naruto and his enemy clashed swords, clinging to the side of the building as though by magic as their blades sent sparks flying. Their eyes showed hate and anger towards the other as they fought not for anything, but everything. Lightning stuck threw the night sky, illuminating it as their blades came together once more before they both jumped off the side of the building and continued to battle in mid air. Their skills were unmatched by any mere mortal, no man could wield a blade as these ancient swordsman did now, fighting for their right to survive, for the right to choose the fate of man. The two kicked off one another and landed in a crouch both glaring at the other hatefully...
"I never would've imagined how the story would play our... That it would end in this way..."
"SASUKE!" Naruto shouted at the boy and lunged forward, his sword held diagonally in his hand's and making sparks form from the ground below as he dragged it. Sasuke snarled and held his Chokato out before lunging at Naruto, both roared in utter rage, hate and fury as their blade's hit each other, a flash of lightning lighting the sky the moment they hit...
"That in the end... We would be forced to kill one another in order to truly live..."
AN: This is not a sequel to my "Naruto Ultimate" Story. This is an AU that I thought of that I NEEDED to get out of my head. I didn't know whether or not anyone would like a story like this, so I posted this prologue to gage your reactions. Please leave honest reviews, with criticism if at all possible, or comments on the story from what little bit I showed here. Also, this story will NOT take presidency over my "Naruto Ultimate" fic, this is just a story I will work on whenever I get writer's block on it. Also just so you know in advance, there is now way in HELL this will be a Harem fic, sorry but I'm not going to make all of my story's into a harem fic. I will post a vote for his first pairing next chapter. (Yes he WILL have more than one, mostly cause he live's over a THOUSAND years...) But until then tell me what you think of this story...
