Hey everyone! Sorry if you were disappointed of my last chapter, but I wanted to introduce Yuffie and Leon pretty quickly, and I was trying to hurry so I could get the next chapter of Team Fox up. And I would have wrote the matches horribly. So I beg for your forgiveness.
Also, to Dragon and Sword Master, thank you for pointing out that mistake, but I think I can come up with something.
And to Behind you with a knife, I have a plan, relax.
Well, you know the drill; I don't own Naruto or Kingdom Hearts. And that is getting annoying.
Kakashi was searching high and low for the blond enigma. He had to assign a sensei to him, but he couldn't do that unless he found the boy. At the moment he was standing at training ground seven hoping to find the boy, but so far he wasn't having any luck. He ran through his mental checklist of places to look for him, "Ichiraku ramen was a bust, he's not on any training ground that I can see, he's not on the Hokage monument. Where is that boy?"
Kakashi began wandering the streets, hoping to find him when he thought he might as well check his apartment. When he arrived at the building, the landlord greeted him, "Good morning, Shinobi-san, is there something I could do for you?"
"Yes, which room is Naruto Uzumaki's?"
The landlord moved closer, and whispered, "Now is a bad time to trash his apartment, I think the demon is still in there, come back tonight, he would have left by then."
Kakashi wanted to bash the man's skull in, but being a Jounin, was able to control his temper enough to not kill the man where he stood.
"Thank you for the info." Kakashi said, "Now tell me what room he's in, so I won't have to ask you later, and thereby incriminate you."
"Sure, it's room 107."
"Thank you." Kakashi said before turning to 'leave'. When he was outside the door, he shunshined inside and down the hall a little ways, just out of view of the landlord. He walked down the hall until he got to room 107. He knocked on the door, but was surprised to see a small pale yellow creature open it. He had small, red bat wings and a large ball that stood on the top of an antenna.
"Kupo! I'm assuming you are 'Cyclopes'?" It asked.
Kakashi blinked, "Uh…Yeah…that's me…"
"Kupo! Well I'm afraid Naruto is asleep right now. Kupo! If you could come back later, though."
Kakasi was about to leave when a slightly familiar voice croaked out, "Uhg, who is it, Joey?"
Kakashi answered the question, "Your favorite, one-eye, Jounin sensei." He peaked in to see Naruto standing in black pajama bottoms with a white undershirt. The scowl on his face made Kakashi assume he wasn't a morning person.
"Go crawl in a hole and die." Naruto said, proving Kakashi's assumption correct.
"Not a morning person, Naruto?"
"Kupo! That doesn't even begin to describe it." Joey said.
"Anyways, Naruto, I have some good news and bad news." Kakashi said.
"Whatever, Joey, where's breakfast?" Naruto asked.
"Kupo! Coming right up!"
"The bad news is, Naruto, that I won't be able to train you for the Chuunin Exam finals."
"Oh, I'm just so devastated." Naruto said, apparently his sarcasm doesn't lose its strength even though Naruto's mind was fully awake.
"The good news is, I found a teacher for you." Naruto turned to him, almost slightly interested. "He is a good teacher and a good Jounin."
"Name?" Naruto asked.
Naruto visibly slummed. "You have got to be kidding me! Him!? That no-good closet pervert who was Konohamaru's sensei?!"
"Don't ask. Bad memories."
"I don't need him, besides; I already have two people who have offered to train me."
"You wouldn't know them." Naruto answered simply.
"Well, tell me if you change your mind."
"Whatever Cyclopes." Naruto said before diggingin to his breakfast.
The moon began to rise on the small clearing, as Naruto waited for his new senseis to arrive.
He did not have to wait long before two cloaked figures materialized from the dark woods around him. Without a word Naruto drew his keyblade. "Are you ready?" Leon asked, pulling the Gunblade from his belt.
"I was born ready." Naruto said, as he slipped into a figthing stance.
Leon quickly raised his Gunblade and began firing huge balls of fire at the boy. Naruto was able to dogde most of them, while the rest, he dispersed with Areo. He was almost on Leon, when suddenly three Shuriken flew past his face. Naruto was able to hit the brakes just in time to keep his nose form getting cut. However, his sudden stop gave Leon a chance to begin attack him with his blade.
Naruto quickly brought his Keyblade between the oncoming slash and his head, saving him from a nasty hair cut. "Not bad for a seventy-year-old." Naruto smiled.
"Not bad for a brat who hasn't even hit puberty." Leon replied with a smirk.
"Touché." Naruto said.
Suddenly, Yuffie charged him. Naruto jumped back and began launching a newly-learned jutsu, "Fuuton: Kazekiri!" A blade of wind was formed and began flying at Yuffie.
"Dai Endan!" She cried, blowing a large fireball from her mouth. As soon as the wind met the Fireball, the wind was completely engulfed by it, rendering Naruto's attack usleless, while making her own stronger.
"Bilzzaga!" Naruto yelled, shooting an icy blast at the oncoming fireball. The ice, upon contact with the fireball, melted, and the water doused the flaming projectile with a hiss.
Yuffie was doubled over, her hands on her knees, and her arms supporting her. "Alright kid, sorry, but I can't keep this up." She said panting.
Naruto nodded, he wouldn't admit it, but that new jutsu she taught him was draining. "That's alright, we can take a break." Naruto said, trying to hide his own pant.
He didn't hide it well enough. Yuffie smiled knowingly at him, "You are such an opportunist."
"What?" Naruto asked.
"Nothing." She said before adding, "You are very lucky to be a wind type like I am."
"Well, if you know anything about me, I'm all about luck."
Later that night, Naruto had just finished another Jutsu Yuffie taught him, and had finsihed some sword techniques from Leon. When he had finished, Yuffie asked how life as going for the boy. After explaining his history to her, he began retelling the events of his life. Then he came to that very morning. "Then Cyclopes comes up to me and suggests that closet pervert to be my sensei! Can you believe it!? Kakashi wants Ebisu to be my sensei for the chuinnin exams."
Yuffie looked at him, "So did you accept?" she asked.
"No. Why would I do that?"
"Because," Yuffie began, calmly, but growing in anger, "No matter how lazy, idiotic, or bull headed he may be, he is still your sensei, and should there-by be treated with respect!"
"And if I'm going to be the sensei of a boy who does not respect any other sensei he might have, then I will not teach him."
Only one thought went through Naruto's mind as Yuffie finished her monologue "Oh, crud." He then quickly decided the best thing to do was take up Kakashi's offer, especially if he wanted to learn anymore Fuuton jutsus. "Alright," He grumbled, "I'll take the closet-pervert's training…"
"Good," Yuffie said, "You will train each day with this Ebisu person, then each night with us. Understood?"
Naruto smiled, "You couldn't be clearer."
Naruto grumbled. "At least he is a good teacher."
He was standing on the center of the lake near the hot springs, Kyuubi giving him instructions on changing his chakra flow."It's just like tree-walking, but his time you have to constantly change the flow to your feet."
"Yeah, I heard him." Naruto thought as he practied water walking. After awhile he sent Kyuubi a message, "You know, this easier than I thought."
"Not surprising, you did pull off a Kazekiri earlier, and that does take some serious control. Not to mention Atsugai."
"What do you know, Kakashi was right. This guy is helpful."
After a couple of minutes of walking, and then running on water, Naruto got bored, but Ebisu refused to teach him anymore until he was sure that Naruto had mastered it.
If Naruto had contiued to be taught under Ebisu, he would not have learned anything else that month.
But this was not to be.
They heard a giggling next to them. They both turned in time to see a white haired man peeking through a small hole in the wooden fence. He was wearing some sort of red robe and wooden sandals.
Ebisu saw this as an opportunity to change Naruto's opinion of him. Normally, he wouldn't care, but when a boy constantly calls you by a nickname that reveals something rather negative about you, you tend to try to disprove it. This was Ebisu's case. "So, pushing his sunglasses up his nose, he said calmly, "I will not have un-gentlemen-like behavior in my presence."
Before the white-haired pervert could respond, Naruto did his job for him, "That is the saddest lie I have heard in my life."
The white haired man laughed. "This kid knows his prevs."
Naruto closed his eyes and shuddered. "Ew. Don't ever say that again."
The white-haired man laughed more. "I like this kid." He said out loud, but mostly to himself.
"Look, can you just leave, so this closet pervert can keep training me?" Naruto asked.
"No. I'm not. So what are you going to do about it?"
Naruto smirked as the Keyblade shimmered into his hand. "Where to begin?" Naruto asked, answering the White-haired man's question.
Both men's mouths dropped.
Thoughts were racing in the white-haired man's head. "A Keybalde? How did he get one? When did he get it? Why haven't I heard anything about this? Who is this kid?" The man was only able to put the last question into words. "Who-who are you?"
Naruto smile only got bigger, "MY NAME IS NARUTO UZUMAKI, KEYBLADE MASTER!" The boy yelled at the top of his lungs.
The white-haired man stood in shock. This was Naruto?
Naruto's smirk grew, "Obviously, I blew your sorry little mind with my awesomeness. Now if you'll excuse us, Closet-pervert-san needs to keep training me."
"Hey, before you do, can I ask you something?" The white haired man asked.
"Is this sorry excuse for a perv your Jounin sensei?"
"Hey!" Ebisu snorted at the remark.
"Are you kidding? I wouldn't be caught dead in his team if he ever had one." Naruto answered.
"What? If anything you should be grateful!" Ebisu told him.
"So who is you Sensei?" The white haired man said.
"That would be Cyclopes, or better known as Kakashi." Naruto answered.
"Thanks, I'll be right back." He said before disappearing then reappearing. "You have been dismissed from teaching duty, and I'm, to take it up where you left off." He said to Ebisu.
"And who are you?" Ebisu asked.
"My name is Jiraiya, the famous Sanin!"
"Famous?" Naruto asked.
"And YOU," He said, pointing to Naruto, "Are my new student!"
"Alright." Naruto said, "When do we start?"
"Tomorrow!" He said, "Meet me at the waterfall that's south of here."
That night, after a light spar, Naruto told Yuffie and Leon about what had happened that day. When Naruto mentioned Jiraiya, Yuffie jumped. "A Sanin! No way! And all these years I've thought they were a myth!"
"Huh?" Naruto asked.
"Well, according to legend, the Sanin were three of the greatest ninja who ever lived, they could bring down an army just with their presence. However, they lived on another world, so no one could prove their existence. But wow! An actual Sanin! And he's gonna be your sensei! Kid you are lucky!"
The next day, Naruto walked up to the waterfall, almost surprised to see Jiraiya peeking at a bunch of women in bikinis. Emphasis on 'almost'. Suddenly, an evil idea popped into his head. He quietly snuck behind the Sanin, and making the Tora seal, he shoved his finger up the unknowing Sanin's rear end. "Yeow!" He cried, scaring the girls and making Naruto land on his back and start laughing.
"'One thousand years of death' is DEFINITELY the best Taijutsu ever!" The boy cried.
Jiraiya muttered something about stupid blondes ruining perfectly good research. Then he turned his attention to the boy who was still rolling on the floor. "Alright, gaki!" Jiraiya said, picking the boy up with his hand, "Time to train!"
That night, Naruto sat with Leon and Yuffie, telling them about what had happened that morning. "Then he did this stupid dance and a toad appears," Naruto said, "The toad was holding a large scroll, and Jiraiya told me I'd get his summoning contract. The look on his face was priceless when I told him I already had one."
"All you'll have to do is sign your name in blood at the bottom,"
"Then you'll be able to summon toads in the midst of battle,"
"This will help you become one of the greatest Ninja ever!"
"What?" Jiraiya asked angrily.
"I already have a summoning contract." Naruto told him.
"What? How could you have a summoning contract already?"
Naruto didn't answer, he did, however begin summoning. "Kuchiyose no Jutsu!" He cried, drawing a quick circle of blood and going through the hand seals. Suddenly there was a huge poof of smoke. When it cleared, it revealed Naruto on the head of a huge eagle.
Jiraiya's mouth dropped open.
"Thanks for the eagle contract, by the way." Naruto said as he continued. "Then he said since that was out of the way, he could begin teaching me a jutsu that belonged to the greatest man who ever lived. Speaking of which," Naruto said before pulling out a rubber ball, "Come on, come on!" The ball bulged several times but nothing else. "Darn it!" He said, throwing the ball off into the forest.
"Hey Naruto," Leon said.
"I have a couple of questions I have been meaning to ask you."
"When you were telling us about your fight with that Orochimaru guy, you said you shot a fire spell at him, but you were in Valor Form, how did you do that?"
"Kyuubi sensei was able to channel some of his magic into me so I could pull it off, however, Valor form does suck up most of the power so the spell greatly weakened."
"Wow." Leon said, "And my second question is when did you start loving Hinata?"
"Well, if you want Kyuubi's exact quote, he said 'I can recognize love easier than you can recognize Ramen.' Then he told me I loved Hinata I just didn't know it yet." Naruto then began to sadden, "And during her fight with Neji, I-I felt that, without her, I-I wouldn't have any reason to live."
"Yeah, that sounds like love to me." Leon said, "Well, good luck with that." Leon then stretched and pulled out his Gunblade. "Ready for another round?"
Three weeks went by, and Naruto had learned four new Fuuton Jutsus from Yuffie, and the Rasengan from Jiraiya. He had summoned the Boss eagle, Songen (majesty), and received his blessing, and he also had finished a new spell he had been working on. "Woodaga!" Naruto yeeled, when suddenly vines grabbed a hold of the rock that he had targeted. Slowly the vines began crushing the rock until it was nothing but pebbles.
Naruto sighed, he liked this part of the day, it was the time between when he was training with Jiraiya and Yuffie and Leon. He actually got a lot done at these times, like summoning Songen, and completing the Rasengan. In fact, he had just remembered another he got done at this time of day.
Despite him having an eagle contract, Jiraiya insisted that he sign the Toad contract. So, Naruto was working on summoning the Toad boss, Gambunta, if he remembered Jiraiya correctly. He had summoned many good-sized toads that, despite their unwillingness to help him, liked the boy. Naruto was actually happy that he was on the Toads good side, it would help him with Gambunta, because a reputation is something that most summoning animals base their beliefs off of. He went through the handsigns again and drew the blood circle, "Kuchiyose no Jutsu!" He cried, this time a huge toad with a spiky fork and a huge shield appeared. The toad looked around before spotting the black-clad boy, "Oh, hey Naruto."
"Sorry about that Gamaken, trying to summon Gambunta."
"Well, keep it up, you're almost there." The giant toad said reassuringly, "You're actually doing better than Jiraiya did."
"Really?" Naruto asked, sitting in front of the toad.
"Yup. He had our contract for almost a full year before summoning Gambunta. Each time he either summon me or my brother and he really began to get on our nerves."
"Must have stunk, listening to Ero-senin complain all the time."
Gamaken laughed, "Ero-senin, that's good. I've gotta tell that to someone."
"You do that; I'll keep trying for Gambunta."
Gamaken Laughed and disappeared in a puff of smoke.
Naruto began the jutsu again and this time was rewarded with the second-in-command toad, Kyaputen (captain). "Greetings Naruto Uzumaki." The toad said.
"Hello, Kyaputen." Naruto said, slightly downtrodden.
"What is the matter, boy?"
"It's just, I'm so close, yet the contract is useless to me unless I can summon Gambunta."
"Well, you are doing very well, for someone who is only twelve." The wise toad said.
"I know, but still."
"Well, I hope you can succeed in your summoning." The toad said, "Oh, and one more thing, never be afraid to ask for help." Then he disappeared.
An idea sparked in Naruto's head. "Kyuubi-sensei, can you help me please?"
Kyuubi was shocked, the boy was asking for help? That was definitely new. "Why should I help?"
"Because it's just so I can summon Gambunta once, as soon as I do, the Toad Contract could help me, unless he has a problem with the eagles."
Kyuubi thought for a second or two, he was trying to have the kit do it all on his own, but then again, he did summon the second in command, it was only a matter of time until he could summon Gambunta, and it was time the Kit didn't have."I suppose I could help."The Fox said, giving the boy some chakra.
"Kuchiyose no Jutsu!" He cried, this time, he was rewarded by a huge toad wearing a kimono of some kind with a knife at his side and a pipe in his mouth. He looked down at the robed boy, "You must be Naruto Uzumaki."
"Yep, that's me."
The toad sat in silence for a while, then spoke "I have heard many things about you, but there is something that causes me distress."
"What is it?"
"I am aware that you already have a contract, with the eagles."
"As a general rule, we summons only allow one contract per shinobi, this rule is normally followed by the fact that most ninja have only one sensei that is willing to give a contract. Yet you have been able to sigh two. Can you tell me how?"
Naruto told Gmabunta about Yuffie and how he met Jiraiya. All the while, the toad sat quietly and listened. "So even though he knew I had a contract with eagles, he insisted that I sign the toad contract."
"Hm." Gambunta groaned, "I think I understand, can you please summon the Eagle Boss?"
"Of course." Naruto said, before drawing a quick circle with his blood and slamming it down on the ground "Kuchiyose no Jutsu!" Suddenly, next to the Toad stood a huge Bald Eagle, "Gambunta, Songen. Songen, Gambunta."
"Hello, Gambunta." said the Eagle, "What did you want to talk about?"
"It is a possible problem that we may have on our hands, do you have anything against Naruto holding a contract with Toads along with the Eagles?"
"Why would I have a problem with that?"
"Because my grandfather told me of a time when the Eagle contract was quite popular, many Toads died at the beaks of your Eagles."
"As did many Eagles themselves, Gambunta." Songen said, "Those were dark times for us, as much as they were for you, maybe even darker. And honestly, I would like to forget the past."
Gambunta nodded, "So then you have no quarrel with us, then?"
"No." The eagle said, shaking his head, "Not at all."
"Very well, Naruto, you may summon any of the toads to help you, and I will make sure that they do." Gambunta said the last part a little sadistically before puffing away.
Naruto learned three things that day. The first was that the Eagles and the Toads had a dark past they were trying to forget, the second was that he should never be afraid of asking for help, and the third was that Gambunta was very sadistic.
The fourth week of the month flew by without as much as a problem. It was almost as if nothing had ever happened. But everyone knew in their hearts that that feeling was dead wrong. Something did happen, a Hyuuga had nearly killed his cousin, and the demon brat called for retribution. They decided to cheer the Hyuuga, in case he might kill the demon, but little did they know, Naruto was going to get the retribution he asked for.
And end chapter. Here you go, hope you enjoy, also hope I didn't mess this chapter up.
See ya guys around!
