AN : Again, an idea for a fanfic. As usual, I probably won't continue after chapter 1 or 2… but I hope I will… Well sorry for the serious plot holes… cope with it lol.
Chapter One : Abandoned.
The one named Uzumaki Naruto was half-crawling, half-walking through the forest. Away. Away from the pain. Running away from the suffering. He couldn't take it anymore.
Every minute or so he clutched his head and nearly screamed in pain, as images flashed in front of his eyes. Memories...
What were those memories you ask?
Flashback ( s )
„I hate you Naruto! Not only you hurt Sasuke-kun, but you are the fox demon too? Go and die!"
„My mom said that you're a monster… I didn't want to believe it… but now... i see. You're a demon!"
„Naruto, I am deeply dissapointed in you. Not only you hurt your teammates, but you don't even regret it. You're trash. Oh, sorry. You're worse than that…"
„Naruto, I've been favoring you for too long. I've been asked to punish you, and it shall be done. You're suspended for six months. That's all there's to it. Now go away."
„Naruto, I've heard everything from Tsunade... I refuse to train you any longer. Now let me do my research."
„Naruto… I tried to love you, like a son maybe… but now I realize, that I cannot… I am sorry, Naruto. I hate you. I hate you, because you hold the Kyuubi. You killed my parents. I don't want to see you ever… again. F…farewell, Naruto…"
Nobody... cares. They ... al l... want me ... dead.
End Flashback ( s )
Sometimes Naruto wanted answers to why was he hated so much. Now he knew. He was the Kyuubi no Kitsune. Fourth couldn't seal him, so he used another seal to make him human and seal away his memories and kitsune powers. How simple, yet very effective.
Now, under an effect of a Jutsu, some of those memories were returning. However, only the bad ones. Unexplained slaughters. Killings. Maybe there were explanations, and maybe they were righteous, but Naruto couldn't know that. Only thing that he saw was blood. That was too much for his human mind. It caused him unbelievable suffering.
( Think about Tsukuyomi... but it was simple memory viewing ( and mind messing-up ) technique or well never mind... )
Anyhow, for the first time he fully understood his existence. At least in the human world. It was to be hated. Hated for eternity.
He continued to walk… or rather crawl away. Still in pain. Still suffering.
He wondered... if someone had ever loved him. Did he have a family in the demon world. Were they evil? Was he evil? How... what... when... so many questions.
In that instant a picture flashed in front of his eyes. There was grass everywhere. Looked like a spring. In front of him, there was a red haired woman, beautiful one at that, with slitted eyes and eight red, bushy fox tails sprouting out of her back. She had a lovely smile. Could it be? Yeah… it was…
„... Mother..." He mumbled, almost incoherently. Could she help him? Would she help him? Will she hear him? Will she help him?
„H-help" he mumbled again,as he clutched his head in pain and kneeled.
„MOTHER!" He suddenly screamed. Will she come now? Will she?
Flash of red light filled the space. It started to retreat soon after. As it was fully gone it revealed the same woman from Naruto's memory. His mom. Would she remember?
She was looking the other way. Was she ignoring him? Did she hate him?
„H-help me... please... „ Naruto tried to make her help him... well and find him.
For her it was quite weird. One minute she was preparing some food and the other she is somehow transported into the Ningen realm. How weird... She was quite pissed. Who dare summon her! The queen of the demon realm!
Then she heard some faint voice in the background. Was it this ningen that dared to summon her.
She turned to him, her facial expression filled with anger. She saw a 12 year old human supposedly in pain. He had blonde hair and some weird orange jumpsuit. Disgusting, even for a human.
„H-help" He mumbled again.
She was thinking what to do. Sure she wasn't evil but killing him for such an insolence would be in place. Or would it?
She looked him in the eyes. They flashed red. Her eyes widened a bit.
„M-mom-my... m-make i-t g-go away..." He mumbled again, now lying on the ground now, clutching his head. Her eyes widened at this. Was this ningen... there was something that happened with her son. After her daughter, his sister was kidnapped by sone ninja, he went to save her. And she never heard from him since. For long 12 years. Well not very long in demon terms, but anyway.
However this boy... whisker like marks on his cheeks. Demonic aura. Eyes flashing demonic red. Calling her mother. And exactly 12 years old. It was him.
„H-hiro-kun? Is that you?" She now looked at him with worried look and began walking towards him, slowly.
Naruto simply looked at her between the memory flashes, and asked her „W-was t-that my nam-e?" It was apparent to her that whatever they have done to him, he was missing quite a lot of memories. Well missing your name and stuff, nothing serious, right? Good news is that he knew the she was his mom. ( simply because she could save him, right? )
She simply nodded. Now she was sure. It was her son.
She kneeled beside him. „Shh... It will be allright." She said, as she touched his forhead gently, and he passed into unconscioussnes.
Naruto woke up. Slowly, he gained some self consciousness. It was bright. He could see that even with his eyes closed.
All the pain from yesterday ( or so he thought ) was simply gone. He felt great.
Oh yeah, he realised the second thing. What the hell was this place... somehow it felt familiar.
He slowly sat on the bed, and looked around the room. It looked like a kid's room. In a demonic way. There were lots of toys, books... photos.
Naruto walked to the table, where the photos were. He stretched his hand and raised one. He looked at it. There was a red haired boy with blue, slitted eyes. About his age. The boy looked a lot like him. Well he was the same, except the hair, and had no whisker marks on his cheeks. Could it be him...?
Naruto put the picture away, thinking about everything that happened, but mainly, about that photo.
He walked around the room looking at stuff, examining it, until he came to a mirror.
He looked at it. To say he was shocked was an understatement. His whisker marks were gone and his hair was red. His eyes were slitted, but they stayed blue. He very well resembled his mother.
‚So that's me…'
Although he was shocked, it made perfect sense. Everything made sense. Well it made sense before… but you know how it is. Now he was perfectly sure about… well quite everything.
He looked around the room again. He saw an open door, and walked through it. As soon as he walked through the doorway he could smell… food? Well, nevermind, he continued walking, until he reached a room, which very well resembled a kitchen. Whoa! It was a kitchen.
The woman, his mother, supposedly, was at the desk, cooking. It looked like a home in his dreams. A nice room, comfortable bed, mom in the kitchen, cooking and with lively, lovely smile on her face.
She turned around a smiled at him. „Oh, you're awake!" Naruto simply nodded, because he was unsure what to do anyway. She then gave him a hug.
Naruto stood there dumbfounded, in the woman's embrace. He closed his eyes and a lone tear escaped his eyes. It was the first hug that he had ever recieved. At least in his ‚human' life, since he had nearly no memories of his life as a fox demon.
She then looked at his face, and saw the tear. „Hiro-kun… what's wrong? Are you sad?" At this he returned the hug. „N-no… I am happy… Too happy to describe…"
‚Just what happened to him?' She thought.
She moved away from him, and smiled again. „Well the food is ready. I am sure that you have a lot of questions since I see that your memory… isn't what it was twelwe years before… and sure want to know what happened to you and stuff…"
Naruto nodded, and moved towards the dining table. He sat down at the left side of the table.
This made his mother smile. „Well well! At least you have intuition! You always sat there… and refused to sit anywhere else." She chuckled.
The food was prepared at the table, and they both started eating, and conversing.
First, Naruto spoke about his life as a ningen. His loneliness… pain… being wronged by everybody, being hated by everybody, being disregared. Beaten up. Starved… and in the end… betrayed.
This was the most horrible fate of a person, which the woman had ever heard. She was utterly disgusted. Foolish humans! How dare they!
When he finished, it was his turn to ask the woman.
His first question was… „Was I a good person…?"
At this, his mother could only smile. „So that is what you're afraid of? That you were an evil demon killing every person you meet? Or that you were hated here?"
Well, as weird and awkward as it sounds, our hero, Uzumaki Naruto, aka Hiro no Kitsune, otherwise the mighty Kyuubi no Kitsune could only nod. He was afraid.
„Oh oh… Hiro-kun! There is nothing to worry about! You were as kind, dense… well and everything else as you're now!"
„Well that's good… I guess…"
„As I was saying… don't worry. You see, we, demons, as the ningen refer to us aren't evil by nature or something. We are simply animals, as the pitful humans often refer to us. The most powerful ones if you want… every animal has a soul. We, our clans are simply the most developed in usány our power and brain" She continued as she poked the side of her head „Well… anyhow I think it would be best for you to regain your memory…"
„R-regain? Mem-mory? But…"
„Well you can't stay like this, can you? You transformed back a bit but its still not enough you see… well how to put this… you sure want to be as powerful as before, don't you?"
"Well… yeah…" He could only mumble. His mother was a freak? Well or she was too enthusiastic for some things. At least she was nice.
„Don't worry Hiro-kun!" She half-squealed again „Your memories were happy ones, as I can remember… besides since you're practically the same person as before… you will just regain them you see? Then, all your questions will be answered."
„Okay! Lets get on with it!"
„Of course? When else"
She was erratic. She was very emotional. Well… she didn't see her son for twelve years, then he comes back with severe memory loss only to tell her that he was in hospital like 468 times with serious injury and uncountable times with a less severe injurie. He didn't remember the exact number of assassination attempts. He then tried to make then foolish ningen accept him, he did his best only to be kicked in the butt as a ‚Thanks a lot, but could you just you know… jump from the bridge? It would really help me… thanks again!'
Naruto nearly fell of the chair. This was the most crazy day of his life.
His mother raised a hand. „Akuma Fuuhaijo! Manten Omoi Ristoua no Jutsu!" Her hand glowed blue – red. She then firmly touched his forhead.
He screamed. And screamed. And screamed a little more.
Images flashed in front of his eyes. Like that time. But now… it was different. Different immages flew around his head…
Then he simply passed out.
Le fin de le premiere… crap don't know the french word for chapter… looking out in a dictionary is too troublesome.
„Akuma Fuuhaijo! Manten Omoi Ristoua no Jutsu!" – Grammatically wrong! However – Demon Seal Removal! Perfect Mind Restore technique
Uzumaki Naruto = Hiro no Kitsune = Kyuubi no Kitsune.
His mother's name is Karei no Kitsune.
So what will he do now? Who will Naruto be? How will he turn out? Will he slaughter all inhabitants of Konoha for their insolence? What about the fox realm? And what would Jan Tleskac say? ( lol… a famous quote from czech magazíne Reflex. See they have a really cool comics there and… well you'd have to speak czech and read it… until then, adios! )
By next time, Ja ne!
