Sarutobi had a headache.
Scratch that, migraine.
The council was once again demanding the death of the Kyuubi Container and said Container, once again, was in hospital after, yet another, attack.
Naruko Uzumaki was only six years old and already forced to wear an almost undetectable henge 24/7 that makes her look like a male version of herself: Naruto Uzumaki. He dreaded to think what the villagers may do otherwise.
'Minato, if you could see what this village has come to…'
The elderly Hokage jolted out of his thoughts as his door burst off his hinges, letting in a very very pissed off Anko Mitarashi. While rather startled by Anko's rather violent entry he wasn't that distracted that he didn't notice the presence of the cloaked person that 'shushin'ed into the corner. For a moment he felt relief at the familiar chakra signature but then he felt dread… a lot of dread when he remembered who that chakra belonged too.
Sarutobi gulped, he had two of the most frightening konoichi he ever knew in his office… in the middle of the night… both really angry.
'Kami, help me…' then a thought hit him, Nori wasn't supposed to be in the village at all. She was supposed to be a representative for Konoha in another allied village. This was bad. Nori always did what was asked of her, she often used loopholes but she still did it. He briefly entertained the idea that it was because of the hospitalised Naruko before dismissing it. It took two days to get to Konoha from the other village; Naruko had only been in hospital for roughly twelve hours. No shinobi no matter how fast could make it from that village to Konoha in that time… well maybe Maito Gai but he was never charted in the normal. That only left one other reason. Nori had already set off to Konoha before she heard the news about Naruko, but he could safely bet she knew about it… probably made her angrier… and for a good reason. Nori was known to have a fiercely protective streak, heck it's what made her so popular with escorts; they could really feel safe around her no matter how crazed she might seem later on. It made her a good Jounin.
Konoha got quite a good bit of profit because of her.
"Anko-San, Nori-San… what brings you here at this time of night?" Judging by the look on Anko's face and how Nori was too quiet it was nothing good.
The fifteen year old sat down opposite the village leader with a sigh and said village leader noticed how she kept the cloak covering her. "I originally came here about… complications in my last mission…" She was interrupted by a dry snort of the purple haired snake mistress," Complications my ass! Her last mission was supposedly a low level B rank right? Where the Target is only protected by low level samurai or chunin to low Jounin Nuke-Nins right? Right?!" Sarutobi hurriedly nodded his affirmative. "Well look what that low level B rank did to her!" At the end she grabbed the cloak and, before Nori could protest, ripped it off then Sarutobi could see why she had worn it.
She was covered in bandages head to toe, there was barely any skin showing, the majority of her body was expertly covered in thick white gauze; even on her face only one blue eye remained, peaking out from behind shaggy brown bangs. Said remaining eye looked mildly annoyed.
"Why thank you Anko, I wanted to show it at my own time but thank you anyway."
"Like hell you would've, you're too prideful to show it without being forced."
"I'm a medic as well as a Swords mistress Anko, it's not that bad, I mean I'm able to walk aren't I?"
"Baka! You're only fifteen and you're already as or more scarred than own retired veterans. Not only that you died out there Nori! That Lord sent letters when you were recovering telling us about it so don't under exaggerate!"
The old man's eyes widened, "Died!?"
The now rather embarrassed teen shrugged one shoulder. "Well, I was dead for only five minutes tops, someone resuscitated me of course… they also apparently took care of whoever took me out. They sent a team out to investigate and they only found Vulture Food."
Sarutobi couldn't help but take time to process this information.
'The mission we sent her on was B rank assassination, simple for someone of her standards yet judging me what was said her target must have hired help strong enough to take down a Jounin… which means she shouldn't have gone alone. Surely the council wouldn't…'
"What opposition did you face when going for your target?"
"Roughly two dozen samurai and nuke-nins from both high Chunin to mid-Jounin and the target itself had a pair of sumo warriors as bodyguards. I managed to take out a fair majority with no lack of effort on their part and no lack of evading on this ones part. One of the nuke-nins managed to get me by summoning a bear right after I finished off some other guy. I killed the bear by stabbing it when it was on me but we took each other out." Sarutobi felt resigned, it was as he thought. Nori kept talking her tone becoming less embarrassed and slightly sarcastic "now Saru-jiji why exactly was I sent on a mission to the likes of that without a team or, I don't know, actually knowing what I was up against? As the mission stated that my victim, who I did kill thus, completing the mission, may be guarded by a few samurai at most, ya this one thinks that was wrong."
"It is just as probable that you were purposely misinformed," Sarutobi sighed heavily, suddenly feeling as old as he was. "As the council unfortunately does not see you as the valuable Jounin you are." At this Nori and Anko snorted. "Ya think I don't already know that? I know I've been considered a liability ever since I saved a certain precious blonde when I was a Genin. Which brings me to my other reason that I'm here," her tone now resembling cotton covered steel," our blonde isn't being protected here enough, that much is obvious. It is also obvious that if she stays here she won't get a proper education if she even survives that long. Sarutobi-sama I humbly make this request of you: I want Uzumaki Naruko out of Konoha until she is strong enough to survive here, "once again her tone changed, this time pleading, "Please sir, surely you know a contact you can sent her to for a few years?"
The elderly Hokage felt his headache pick up a few notches. 'She does have a point and she genuinely cares for Naruko, I know she can be trusted and she is unfortunately correct about the village but where can I send her to? Who do I know that can be trusted that lives far away from the village?'
A light bulb went off.
'Of course… it'll take some effort to get her there but that's no big deal, if I just call the trusted clan heads to help me on this and perhaps Uchiha Itachi as well and Morino Ibiki.'
For the first time in six years Sarutobi felt Naruko may finally be in safe hands… or paws.
"Nori, are you well enough to assist me with something." Said teen shifted, "depends on what that something is…"
"I need you to bring Naruko here from the hospital while Anko, do you mind quietly getting a few people for me? I don't want to send messenger birds as they might attract attention.."
"You mean that you're actually doing it?" The hope and relief in her voice was crystal clear.
"I believe Naruko deserves this."
Sarutobi looked at the twelve Nins before him: Inuzuka Tsume, Aburame Shibi, Yamanaka Inoichi, Akimichi Chouza, Nara Shikato, Uchiha Itachi, Morino Ibiki, Mitaraishi Anko, Sarutobi Asuma, Shiranui Genma, Namiashi Raidou and Gekkou Hayate. The last three were Elite Jounin who the Konoichi recommended.
"Including you, my son and the Clan leaders that I know are trustworthy we still need two other people that won't sabotage this attempt and have large enough chakra supplies with sufficient control." Sarutobi said with slight frustration, it didn't help that Nori had just looked slightly sheepish.
"I think you mean three spaces, ano you see… in my last mission my hands got rather damaged and I still haven't managed to regain enough mobility in one of them to form a single hand sign." This made the Hokage's frustration rise slightly but Sarutobi couldn't blame the Jounin teen who sounded so apologetic. "But…," the old monkey returned his attention to her again, "You could use Genma-Kun, Raidou-Kun and Hayate-Kun for the missing spaces." Anko thoughtfully nodded her approval of the choices. "Of course… they're perfect."
"You mean Shiranui-San, Namiashi-San and Gekkou-San?"
"Hai, Sarutobi-Jiji," even now Sarutobi couldn't help but be amused by the amount of Titles the brunette girl used to refer to him as, now he knows where a certain Blonde got it from.
"You certain they can be trusted on this?" At this Nori snorted, "No offence meant sir but Duh! I mean ones my brother, another I've known since forever and the last is one of the people I know and can be trusted with my blonde… its either him or Gai-Senpai." At this the Hokage and Anko couldn't help but wince, Maito Gai may be open minded on many things and trustworthy… lets just say secrecy was not an angle best suited for him, as he also figured others were just as trustworthy as he is when they actually weren't… that and he was just plain loud,"… I see your point."
"No worries Saru-Chan, I'll vouch for them!" Her optimism was contagious and he conceded to include the advised Shinobi… however he also had another thing to say first.
"If anyone else
ends up calling me Saru-Chan because of you, you'll find yourself
on D-Rank duty faster than the Yellow Flash… "
"Like I won't be doing those anyway until my hand regains full mobility... Saru-Chan" a light teasing, mocking tone, the Snake Mistress shook her head bemused. 'This girl's insane... Ibiki's fault, probobly, since he was her Sensei... and he is Cheif of the Torture and Interrogation Program at ANBU... heck he introduced me to this girl when i became his apprentice!'
The Hokage glowered lightly at the non-effected brunette,
"… I'll make you a sensei to a Genin Team."
Stalemate silence then,
"I'll be good."
.:: End Flashback!::.
Nori looked at the Hokage telling the others why they were summoned, part of her felt relief that her blonde would be safe at last from the villagers but another part felt like never letting the little girl go. Before she could simply go to the village and visit the blonde girl but after tonight the child wouldn't even be in the Elemental nations any more, plus she had no idea who she was being sent to only that Sarutobi knows them somehow and they'll help Naruko become stronger. The Jounin knew she should trust the Sandaime but… her blonde had already been hurt so much… what if she gets hurt again? Her heart was pained at the thought.
"Onee-Chan?" a small voice caught her attention and she couldn't
help but hug her blonde since she wouldn't be able to for a long
time after this.
"Why are you so sad? Why am I here?" Nori looked down and a single blue eye met innocent azure, she sighed trying to think of a way to explain it.
"You'll… be going away for a while. I'm sad because I wont be
able to go with you and I'll miss you," Naruko blinked and looked
"W-why am I going away, Onee-Chan? Is it because I'm bad?" Now it was Nori's turn to blink.
"What do mean you've done something bad? You're the sweetest kid I know, you're loud, mischievous and you can get on peoples nerves but you're not bad."
There was a small sniffle. "B-but I must be. That's why the v-villagers always hate me so much, other kids get punished when they are bad so I must be really—" the blond was cut off by a hand covering her mouth. Three blue eyes looked at the Snake Mistress to who the hand belonged; she looked to be struggling to hold in her KI. Nori understood as she herself was having the same struggle.
'Save that for the villagers…'
At that thought the Purple haired seventeen year old calmed down
enough to pick up the blonde without the chance of accidentally
frightening her. "Naruko look at me. You're not bad!
You're wonderful, in fact there is no word for you except Heart
that I know you have plenty of. You have strength of heart which will
one day make you the best person you can ever be because that's who
you are. Never loose that heart Naruko, keep your family and friends
close to it, listen to it, follow it but protect it, guard it.
I never want that heart to be broken and I never want you to break
others for no reason. The heart is the best thing you can ever have
but it can break… promise me you'll always protect your heart and
others Imouto-Chan." At the end Anko saw tears in Naruko's eyes
and felt them in hers, the blonde hugged the teenage girl sniffing.
"Arigato Onee-Chan… Aisheru Onee-Chan."
Anko squeezed the only person she considered 'Little Sister' and felt Nori join in a small group hug. "Right back at'cha Blondie. You'll go where ever Saru-Chan's sending ya and you come back strong… one day… I know one day they'll be a bunch of people looking up to you... one day," the bandaged teen said trying to keep the wavering out of her voice.
'I will not cry, I will not cry, I will not cry, I-will-not-cry!' Nori and, not that she knew, all the ninja in the room who'd overheard her, basically all of them, were having the same thought. Well… apart from the Hokage who was also thinking:
'She called me Saru-Chan again… she will suffer…'
And Anko who was thinking:
'I can't believe I made such a sappy speech… hey Nori said: Saru-Chan oooh she's gonna get it!
"Ahem, Naruko its time to go," those five words caused both
teenagers to squeeze the blond tightly before Nori walked with her;
putting her on the floor in the middle of the room. "Stay here and
stay still okay?"
"Hai…" The nervously was clear despite the attempt to hide it, Nori ruffled her hair before heading to the back of the room before she lost the downhill battle of not letting the tears fall. The twelve other ninja took places in a circle around the blonde while the Hokage gave Naruko a folded piece of paper.
"Give that to the person you see when you arrive."
Sarutobi completed the circle of thirteen and immediately the other twelve each formed one hand sign, no two did the same one, the Hokage then began flashing through signs almost quicker than the eye could see. A seal began to form on the floor below them and a wind began to pick up around the determinedly still girl in the centre. It was like the wind began to swirl chakra around her feet slowly reaching up, Blue eyes looked to the ceiling and saw another seal absolutely parallel to the one on the floor, from that seal something else began to swirl down… gradually descending towards the chakra. All eyes watched in anticipation as both began to get closer and closer then finally…
Naruko closed her eyes as the wind began to furiously blow around
her… it was like a hurricane. Then she no longer felt the ground
beneath her feet. Eyes squinted open only to see everything around
her begin to fade. Before it was gone completely she
"Goodbye! I'll make you\all proud I promise!"
Then a flash of light,
Uzumaki Naruto was no longer in Konoha or any other Elemental Nation,
Was no longer in that dimension at all.
Hi there! This is my first story and it's dedicated to DarkMagician14. If you've read his work than you'll probably know who Naru-Chan will end up with.
'Nori' is an OC and they will be others so no like, no read. IT WILL BE SLIGHTLY OOC! So no complaining! BTW, you may request pairings but don't whine if I don't chose them. Don't choose a pairing with Sasuke (Coz I hate him with the power of … there isn't a suitable metaphor for it) or Chouji, Isaribi or Tayuya. (I have something in mind for them. Lesser known characters need love! Whoot!) I'm sorry if the chapters seem short, they may get longer.
Flames will be used to roast Orochimaru!!
However constructive critisism will be acknowledged.
