Section 3 - Heartbreak
"What's this all about?" asked Sakura, Naruto leading her by the arm through the park. "I'm not going out with you!"
"Please, believe me, that's the furthest thing from my mind!" he said, dragging her around a corner.
Kiba was sitting on a bench a few meters away and Naruto guided her there, sitting down and indicating that she should do the same. She sat between the two boys, a puzzled expression on her face.
"Kiba, what's going on?" she asked, hopping to finally get an answer to why she had been lugged to the secluded spot.
"Well, we asked you here so, uh … so we could tell you something." he said, looking at Naruto for support.
"We are, uh …" said Naruto, looking for the right word.
"Gay!" said Kiba impatiently, finishing his sentence.
" … What!?" she said, leaping from the bench, looking from boy to boy, her mouth open.
"Gaaaaayyyyy!" said Naruto slowly. "Honestly, you'd think she has a hearing problem."
"You can't be gay, you two are the furthest things from gay I've ever seen!" she said unbelievingly.
"What, do we have to go, prancing down the street in drag, a neon fucking sign over our heads saying GAY, singing 'It's raining men'!"
"Whoa, no need to bite me head off!" she said, still looking unconvinced.
Naruto turned to Kiba; he shrugged back at him and leaned in, capturing his lips passionately. Sakura gapped as they deepened their kiss, pushing each other's faces closer.
'Wow, that's HOT!' said the voice in her head.
"Ok, ok, I get the point, just put your tongues back in your mouths." she said, trying to look degusted.
They broke, blushing slightly at their public display of affection.
'Aw, look, they're embarrassed!' said the voice, adopting a high girly tone.
"Ok, so you're gay. Why did you always hit on me?" she asked, calming somewhat.
"I dunno, I guess because I thought it was expected of me." he said, turning away.
"Why are you telling me this?" she asked, gazing quizitively at Naruto.
"Well, were going to have to tell everyone sooner or later." said Kiba.
"I suppose so. Well I don't have a problem with it, and I don't think anyone else will either." she said, smiling at them
"Thanks for your support." said Kiba, returning her smile.
"I have to get back, I told Hinta that I would only be a minute. We still have some training to do together." she said guiltily.
"Ok then, bye!" said Kiba, returning her wave as she ran around the corner.
Kiba looked at Naruto, he was looking away into a bush and he could tell that something was wrong.
"Naruto?" asked Kiba uncertainly, placing his hand on Naruto's shoulder.
Naruto spun around quickly, and embraced Kiba, spotting tears as his face as he came to rest on his chest.
"What's the matter?" he said, stroking Naruto's back.
"… It-It was a little hard for me, that's all." he stuttered, his voice frail.
"It's ok, everything went fine, there's no need to cry." he said soothingly.
"It's just, I've b-been in denial so long." he stammered.
Kiba embraced him comfortingly, he had only just come to terms with his sexuality, Naruto must have been tarring himself apart for quite a while. Kiba only began feeling this way a month ago, and settled it quickly; he sympathized for the boy's plight.
They sat there for some time, embracing one another, Kiba making sure that Naruto didn't see the tears of empathy he spilt for his pain, consoling Naruto's injured heart.
He and Naruto stood on the porch of Kiba's house, looking out over the forest at a glorious sunset. Naruto's heart beating profusely, he glanced at Kiba, Idolizing his lover. He knew perfectly well how he felt now, knew from the moment Kiba's comforting embrace touched his soul.
He hooked his arm around Kiba's, resting his head on his shoulder, smiling as Kiba's face turned red, still pointed in the direction of the sunset, watching the sun slowly set, giving in to the pressing night. Naruto watched as the last rays of sunshine disappeared under the dense canopy of trees.
Naruto turned to Kiba, and stared into his eyes.
"Kiba." he said, building up his courage. "I just wanted to say, I … I …"
Kiba looked down at him perplexedly, waiting for Naruto to complete his sentence.
"I … I love you!" he finished, panting slightly.
Kiba gaped at him, utterly shocked, stuttering incoherently.
"You don't have to say it back!" said Naruto, blushing furiously. "I just wanted you to know."
Just as Kiba began to regain his composure and tried to give some kind of response, Naruto turned away.
"I've just remembered I've got something to do!" he said, pulling away, voice sounding somewhat upset. "I'll see you later."Naruto took off, running out of sight.
Kiba was stunned. It had happened so fast, he couldn't even reply. He began to hate himself for hesitating. How could he do that to him, leaving him out to dry?
Smacking himself in the forehead, Kiba was about to enter the house when something hit him in the back of the neck. He turned around, the world around him spinning to see a black shadow moving towards him. His vision blurred as he slowly slipped into blackness.
Naruto rolled over in his bed and glanced at the clock; 6:00am. He hadn't gotten any sleep yet, and supposed that he wouldn't. All he could think about was what had happened the previous night, when he had told Kiba that he loved him. He shouldn't have sprung it on him like that, it wasn't fair to Kiba. But he couldn't help thinking, is it a case of unrequited love, was it just about sex for Kiba? Surely not, they had shared tender moments as well, cuddling late at night after sex, going on their first "date", Kiba embracing him consolingly in the park, watching the sunset together on Kiba's porch.
He rolled over again, deciding on a course of action; he would go to Kiba's in the morning and apologize for putting him on the spot like that, he could bring some Ramen for them to share, everything would be alright.
A few hours later, Naruto was walking down the street, a bag with a couple of containers of ramen in hand, smiling despite what he was there to do. He couldn't help but smile, he loved the dog boy with all his heart, he would go to the ends of the earth for him.
The early morning sun streamed down on him, giving no hint to what awaited him around the corner.
He turned onto Kiba's street and was surprised to see a small crowd around Kiba's house. There was their teacher, Kakashi Sensei and, he took a double take, the Lady Hokage. He ran full tilt towards the house, this couldn't be good. He reached the house in a matter of seconds.
"What's going on, why are you all standing on Kiba's porch?" he asked, not knowing if he wanted to know the answer.
They turned around, looking shocked to see him.
"Na-Naruto …" said his teacher, alarm in his voice.
"Naruto …" said Kakashi, his tone heavy. "Kiba, he's been … kidnapped."
The containers of Ramen fell to the ground, spilling their contents all over the porch as Naruto looked at them, unbelievingly.
"Kidnapped … Kiba …. But …" he stammered, unable to control his voice.
He looked at Kiba's door; a piece of paper held by a kunai knife was affixed to the wood.
He stumbled forwards and read the note.
We have taken Kiba, if you ever want to see him alive again, you will come to Dragon's Head Valley at 7:00pm tonight. Bring no one.
"Naruto, we have our best men on it." said the Hokage reassuringly. "We'll find him and bring him home."
Naruto just stared at the paper, open mouthed, as he read the note over and over again. It was addressed to him, it was his fault that Kiba was abducted.
Naruto ran to the side of the porch and vomited over the railing, the liquid landing with a sickly splatter on the ground below.
"He can't be gone, he can't!" he said, before breaking open the door and running inside.
He checked every room, every closet, any ware. He opened the door to his room, hoping this was all some sick joke, hoping he would see Kiba, lying on the bed, ready to share a new kinky game with him. It was empty.
He would go to the training ground, that's where he is. Naruto ran outside, about to head in the direction of the training area when the Hokage spoke.
"Naruto …" she said.
Naruto paused, her voice was different, he had never heard her use this voice before, it was a high, crackling voice, a voice of sadness.
"Naruto, he's gone." she said, that same scratchy quality to her voice.
Naruto felt the words as though they were punches. He fell to his knees, shaking uncontrollably, as he took in the full reality of the situation. Tears slid silently down his face, his heart pounding.
This is really happening, it was real, and all his fault. There was moment, a never-ending moment when he thought he saw Kiba, laughing, extending his hand to him. Naruto reached out for him, crying his name.
Before he fell sideways, and fainted.
Naruto awoke, opening his heavy eyes, noticing that he was in bed. He rolled over, hoping it was all a dream, hoping to see Kiba beside him, snoring, drooling in his sleep, there was nothing.
He sat up and looked around, he guessed from the equipment that surrounded him that he was in a hospital.
Naruto jumped out of bed, looking at his watch as he did, it was 5:30 pm.
He pulled off the dressing gown and put on his clothes, lying folded on a chair beside him. He didn't have much time.
Running down the hallway, he passed a counter where a lady stood to heed his progress.
"Where do you think you are going? Get back in bed!" she said, looking stunned.
Naruto pushed past her, no one would stop him.
Deciding it would take too long to walk down the stairs, Naruto bounded out an open window. He fell six stories down, landing on his feet and continued running as though the jump were merely hopping off a curb.
'Dragon's Head Valley' he thought, speeding through the entrance gate of the hidden leaf village, I'm coming Kiba, I won't stop until I know you're safe.
He ran through the forest, noticing as he did that someone was following him, leaping from branch to branch beside him.
Halting, he turned to face the newcomer. The pale evening sun shone onto Kakashi's face as he stepped towards him from the shadows.
"You're not stopping me!" he yelled, his face red with anger.
"I'm not going to. The Lady Hokage just thinks it's wise for me to tag along, in case something happens." he said calmly.
"Just stay out of the way!" said Naruto before continuing, sprinting through the forest brush.
Kakashi followed, his movements becoming stealthier as they approached the meeting place.
It was five minutes to seven as he entered the valley, Kakashi keeping out of sight. Naruto spotted a figure at the top of a hill and sprang forwards.
When he reached the top of the hill, the figure laughed as Naruto caught his breath.
"I was beginning to think you weren't coming." said a cold voice.
"Orochimaru!" he said, the figure now visible, his pale skin giving a sinister sheen in moonlight.
"Kiba!" he said, seeing his lover, bound and gagged at Orochimaru's feet, writhing as he tried to call out to him.
"Naruto, this is too much for you to handle." said Kakashi's voice.
He heard a rustle of leaves as Kakashi leaped in front of him.
"Tut, tut, tut." said Orochimaru, waving a finger. "The note said, bring no one."
"I didn't, he followed me here. I told you to stay out of the way!" he said furiously at Kakashi.
"Orochimaru is way too powerful for you to take down!" he said, turning his face to Naruto.
The ground around them rumbled. Naruto was flung back as rock shot up from the earth, encasing Kakashi up to his neck.
"Always keep your eye on your opponent." said Orochimaru bemusedly.
"Dam you!" said Kakashi, struggling to free himself.
"Give Kiba back!" yelled Naruto, getting to his feet.
He gave a sinister chuckle. "Don't you want to know why I've brought you here, why I went through all this trouble?"
Naruto glared at him.
"Well, it looks like someone's a little impatient. I'll give you the short story then. I was once part of an organization, an organization that seeks power. One of our goals was the fox demon you carry. I've been researching the way that the forth Hokage sealed him within you, and now I know a way of taking it from you without dyeing myself. I just need a human sacrifice." he said, gesturing towards Kiba, still struggling at his feet.
"Sorry to burst your bubble but it aint going to happen." said Naruto, concentrating his chakra.
"Oh, do you plan on saving you're little boyfriend? Don't make me laugh! You have no chance of defeating me!" he said, laughing sardonically.
Kiba struggled against his ropes, little by little, he was managing to dig his claws into the material, cutting himself free, still unnoticed by Orochimaru.
"Well, let's see what you've got." he said mockingly, opening his arms wide to give him a clear shot.
"Shadow Clone Jutsu!" said Naruto, splitting into hundreds of angry clones, all of which began to converge on Orochimaru.
"Not the same old trick again." he said, making his own hand signs. "Earth Style, Fissure Form Jutsu!"
The ground shook beneath them as thousands of meter high spikes protruded from the ground. Almost all of Naruto's Shadow Clones were eliminated. A few Narutos managed to make it through and charged at him, screaming war cries.
"Serpents Venom Jutsu!" said Orochimaru, aiming the liquid from his hands at the approaching mob. The rest of Naruto's clones vanished, leaving the original burning in the acidic substance.
"Now, now." he said as Naruto tried to get to his feet. "There's no need to move, this procedure works better if the victim is lying still!" he said, punching Naruto in the gut. Blood gushed from his mouth as his body cringed inwards at the site of impact. He fell to the ground.
"See where playing the Hero gets you? See how futile it is to fight it? Watch as I kill you, then I will take the Fox Demon from your dead corps!"
Orochimaru began to make hand signs, mumbling under his breath, lines of chakra coming up his figure. A light built up at his fingers, blinding Naruto. The light shot forwards, coming towards him, there was no way to dodge it.
An outline jumped in front of the blast and crumpled to the ground. The blinding light reseeded and Naruto saw Kiba, a bloody hole in his chest, wheezing on the ground.
Naruto rushed forwards to Kiba's side, tears running down his face.
"Kiba! Hang in there Kiba!" he said, his voice cracking, clutching his hand.
He heard a laugh behind him. "Kiba! Kiba!" said the mocking voice of Orochimaru. "The fool, letting his feelings for someone get in the way of power. You simpletons, you have no idea, no idea that the only thing in life that matters is power. Love, what a joke!"
Naruto stood, streams of red Chakra ran up his form. He opened his eyes, now red slits. The ground beneath buckled and broke as the force of the boy's chakra surrounded him. The whisker like marks on Naruto's face became pronounced, fangs barring as his fingers produced claws and clenched into tight fists. He turned, a look of such terrifying ferocity on his face that even Orochimaru had to take a step back.
"You're the one who has no idea! You don't know what it feels like to be in love, to have something of such importance to you that you would die for it."
Orochimaru took another step back, the pressure of Naruto's chakra pushing him, a look of surprise on his face.
Naruto raised his hand, a ball of red churning chakra appeared.
"I PITY YOU!" he said and forced the sphere into Orochimaru.
The blast hit him square in the chest, a stare of astonishment on his features. Is this the power I've been looking for? The power this boy has conjured at the simple feelings he had? The power of his affection?
Orochimaru flew back, along with half of the cliff beside him and landed in a heap at the foot of a tree.
Naruto fell to his knees, Orochimaru had hit him with something before the Rasengan made contact. He looked down as he felt something wet, blood poured from the open wound on the side of his stomach. He collapsed onto his back and stared at the sky above him. His eyes slowly shut.
Kiba stirred. He looked to his side and saw Naruto lying there, not moving. He crawled over, dragging his body until he reached the boy and gazed down at him.
He smiled, wiping the mixture of blood and tears from Naruto's cheek and kissing it lightly. He moved his head slowly to Naruto's ear before whispering gently.
"I love you too."
He embraced Naruto, resting his head on his chest, content now to die in his lovers arms.
This concludes, The Fox and the Hound, my first short story. I would just like to take a moment to thank you for reading.
In this story, both Kiba and Naruto dies. I know it is not a perfect fairytale ending, but it shows the true passion and strength of love. I will be continuing to write more KibaNaru stories. Thank you again!
