From the start of Team 7's career it was always the exact same thing. The three of them would show up at the time that Kakashi had specified, they would wait two hours for the masked man to show up, and when he finally did arrive he would give some lame ass excuse on how 'A cat crossed his path' or 'he got lost on the road of life', afterwards they would go to the Hokage tower to receive their D-rank mission where HE would do all the work while the rest of his team, his so called comrades, would sit on the sidelines and watch him struggle to finish the mission. Once the mission was over they would go through 'Teamwork Exercises' where he and Sakura would spar Sasuke and Kakashi would give the damn Uchiha pointers on how to fix his form.

Once the official training sessions were over, he would leave along with Sakura while Kakashi took Sasuke to a secret training ground where he would personally train the Uchiha in Taijutsu, Genjutsu, and Ninjutsu…hell, he even taught him some basic Kenjutsu. The only reason Naruto knew this was because he had followed the two in hopes he could ask Kakashi for some pointers.

After the wave mission Naruto became even more depressed. During the mission he had finally made a true friend. Haku was beautiful; she was the itinerary of beauty. She had a good heart, a kind spirit…and she understood his pain…Naruto felt like he was falling in love with her, the two had met the day after they brought Kakashi to Tazuna's place, the two had conversed and comforted each other as they spoke about their past.

The two had gone on small dates around town, they had taken long walks in the forest…they even trained a bit together. By the end of the week the two had grown extremely close. Naruto offered to bring both her and Zabuza to Konoha. Haku was easy to convince and she swore that she would convince Zabuza to accept the deal. The two departed with a hug and a kiss on the cheek. Naruto was so happy that day that he had trouble sleeping…a mistake that he would never forget.

The next morning he awoke to find that his team had gone to the bridge. He quickly dressed himself as he stopped a pair of thugs who were about to kill Inari and Tsunami. He ran with all the speed he could muster and managed to get to the bridge as his team attacked the Zabuza and Haku who were trying to make a deal. Sasuke had attacked Haku while Kakashi engaged Zabuza…he didn't make it three feet before he was ambushed by another group of thugs. When he finally finished he ran to the bridge, when he finally got there he was greeted to a morbid sight that would haunt his nightmares forever…

Kakashi had ran a ball of lightning right through Haku and Zabuza's chest. Zabuza managed to stay alive long enough to kill Gato and a few of his thugs before death claimed him. When he finally managed to get out of his shock from seeing the life be ripped from his dear Haku-chan he presented himself before his sensei who ordered him to quickly bury the two. As the rest of his team left he had to contain himself from attacking Sasuke as he kicked Zabuza's corpse and walked over Haku's arm…

He had spent as much time as he could burying the only woman who had ever showed him kindness and her adopted father. He had spent hours carving out beautiful headstones for their graves. When he finally returned to Tazuna's house he immediately went on the roof and cried himself to sleep…

When they all returned to Konoha he had reclused himself, trained until he dropped from exhaustion, only leaving his training area for team meetings and food, besides that he slept and trained in one of the older training grounds until he dropped from exhaustion.

However…one day he felt drawn to leave his chosen training grounds, he ran through the village until he found a few Kumo shinobi entering the village. The Kumo ninja entered in a group of four with a man wearing Kage robes leading them. There was a girl with blond hair and cat like eyes. She appeared to be a year older than him. There was also a large dark skinned man with eight swords on his back wearing sunglasses…the last member did not interest him…only his two teammates did. There was an aura of…familiarity about the two.

The same thing happened the next day, he ran to the place he felt the energy and found a young woman with crimson hair wearing tomboyish style clothes entering the village with an elderly man with white hair. The two were both carrying medical field equipment…and he got the same feeling from the young girl that he got from those two Kumo nin.

Later that day he ran to the gates again to see a team from mist being led by a beautiful looking woman. She was leading a group of three…but like the Kumo-nins, only two interested him in the slightest. The man with silky black hair and kept a calm exterior while he blew bubbles from some form of pipe drew his interest, the same thing happened with the brash looking man with a scar across his left eye, he had green hair and wore a basic Mist uniform with more…natural applications added to it…he got the same feeling again from the two Kumo nin and the young woman…

The same thing happened over the week, he got similar feelings of familiarity from a Waterfall Kunoichi, two Iwa ninja, as well as a sand genin…he wondered what the feeling was, and he wondered if they had the same sense of familiarity that he did.

He pondered what the feeling was that was making him run to the gates until he decided it wasn't important. When he finally went to sleep he slept with dreams his tormented life, his anger…his pain…unaware that the other nine shinobi he met, were all a part of a plot that he and they would decide…unaware of the conversations going on in not only his head…but the other nine…

With The Sand Team

Gaara had been extremely confused, ever since he entered the village he felt…at peace, the demon that always demanded he kill and slaughter, the one who he saw as a mother to him…had silenced itself of these demands. In fact, the demon now acted as if it were Gaara's mother, she cooed him to sleep, she comforted him…she encouraged him.

The silence from their brother had unnerved his two siblings. They had become restless and more worried what if their brother went insane at a moment's notice, the two often slept with their weapons right next to them, fearing they would be awoken with the need to fight for their lives.

Gaara had walked through the village, and he always had this, longing, this need to go search for something, anything…but he always ignored it. He would return to the place they were staying, always feeling…hollow, as if he had not accomplished what he set out to do.

He was not the only one who felt this way…

With the Iwa team

Han and Roshi were considered the hotheads of Iwa, out of all of Iwa the only person who could match them in craziness was the missing-nin Deidara…but now, the hot heads were calm, quiet, collected.

The Tsuchikage had come with the two fearing that they would go nut's and destroy the village…true he disliked Konoha, but regardless of how quickly Iwa recovered from the last three shinobi wars, each war gave Konoha many benefits that only served to make them stronger. He was not going to risk Iwa's safety because of some old grudge…

Roshi and Han always meditated, trying to contact their inner demon…but why?

No one realized they weren't the only ones trying to contact their inner demons…

With the Waterfall Team

Fu was the most dangerous Kunoichi in the waterfall village, she is just one of several shinobi who make their village feared amongst the minor villages.

She also was considered a tomboy, she was brash, rude, disrespectful…but now she was meditating, trying to contact the demon sealed within her by the former village leader. Most believe the old leader died from drinking the hero's water, when in reality he died using a forbidden jutsu to seal the demon inside of her newborn body.

She was told of her status as a Jinchuriki from the moment she turned five and was trained to be the strongest Kunoichi of her time…some even wondered if she could hold her own against some whirlpool ninja…if there were any still alive that is.

The young Kunoichi was quiet while the rest of her team drank and gambled in the red light district…unaware that she wasn't the only demon container in Konoha…

With the Mist Team

Yagura and Utakata sat facing each other as they sharpened each other's blades while the Godaime Mizukage watched them. She was charged with keeping an eye on Yagura since she was the one who gave the tyrant Mizukage a second chance.

She had used her clan's special jutsu, a jutsu that returned one to the age of thirteen and erased their memories to make the old tyrant a child again, thinking she could kill him…but she lost her resolve to kill him when she saw the innocence in his eyes. She took the title of Mizukage and gave Yagura a second chance.

Yagura and Utakata became quick friends as fellow Jinchuriki, the two became known as the dynamic duo of the mist.

The two however…were nothing like they always acted, they were usually calm but brash…now they were nervous and edgy, they felt a familiar presence in this village, a presence that called them, yet they ignored…something another Jinchuriki did as well…

With the Medics

Amaru was repeatedly cleaning her medical supplies, constantly counting through the various nerves and pressure points of the body, all to keep her mind distracted from the presence that called to her.

Her teacher was nervous. The two had come under Konoha's Ronin qualification so she could become noted when they rebuilt their long destroyed village. He was afraid that the young girl who he began to see as his own child would be hurt in these exams.

Amaru was usually happy and cheerful, now she was moody and annoyed. She always sat by the sink, cleaning her tools, counting through various body parts and lethal points…hell she ran through them in her sleep trying to silence the feeling she felt…she wasn't the only one trying to silence something.

With the Kumo Team

Kirabi and Yugito became cranky and moody, they were hardly ever without some form of weapon with them…and they would randomly shout for their Bijuu to shut the fuck up.

Kirabi's brother, the Raikage, was becoming nervous of his brother and his finest Kunoichi. He was always readying the seals his father had given him before he died sealing up the Hachibi in his younger brother.

The two Jinchuriki always argued with their demons now…and they usually had such a great relationship with their Bijuu…no one knew the plot that was about to unfold.

General POV

The ten Jinchuriki, all gathered in Konoha…none of them knew the plot that was about to unfold, the only thing they knew was that they felt a familiar presence, never knowing why…but always hoping they could find an answer…

A single thought ran through all of their minds…

'What the hell is going on?' little did they know, was that their Bijuu knew…and were discussing it as that thought ran through their minds…

Mindscape

A midnight sky, a full moon…this was the scene in the Bijuu's grand mindscape, where they conversed, planned, and made decisions that would alter the world they ruled.

The calm scene was broken by a storm of chakra as the energy created by the storm began to take form, make shapes…shapes known throughout the elemental countries.

The first shape to form was a long fat form with a dark aura emanating from it, as the form began to solidify it showed a leech like form with a white noh mask with the kanji for Zero right upon the brow…this was the Reibi no Menhiru…

The next shape to take form was a bloated shape with a chaotic aura around it. As the form began to solidify it showed a Tanuki made from sand and covered in purple vein-like markings…this was the Ichibi no Shukaku…

The third shape to form itself was slim and cat like, it had a cold dead aura around it. As the form solidified it revealed a cat made of black fire with glowing golden eyes…this was the Nibi no Baraneko…

The fourth shape to form itself was bloated and covered in jagged shapes. As it solidified it revealed a massive turtle that was missing one of its eyes…this was the Sanbi no Kyodaigame…

The fifth shape to be revealed was slim yet bulky…almost humanoid in appearance. As it took full form it revealed a massive red monkey covered in fire, its fangs were like massive swords…this was the Yonbi no Saru…

The sixth shape was one of the largest; it had a slim figure with a bulky body with a slim and narrow head. As its form became true it revealed a warped creature that resembled a horse with a dolphins head…this was the Gobi no Irukauma…

The seventh being was bulky…and its form seemed to release a weird substance. When the being took shape it revealed the most hideous creature one could ever see. The creature was a massive slug with two small feet that looked like they were too small to be considered useful…this was the Rokubi no Namekuji…

The eighth being was…slender, as well as smaller than all the other ones, but it still held an aura of power. Once it solidified it revealed a massive beetle with horns…this was the Shichibi no Kabutomushi…

The ninth being was bulky and slender. It had an aura of power that made all the other's in the room seem pathetic. When the aura became solid it revealed a massive Ox with tentacle tails…this was the Hachibi no Kyogyu…

And the final form…the one that emanated a power so great that it made all the other's tremble in fear, was slender and muscular. As the great aura solidified it revealed a fox…a massive fox that outsized and out powered all those in the mindscape…this was the Kyuubi no Yoko…current leader of the Bijuu since the true leaders passing…

Kyuubi looked around at his brethren, the demons who he fought with for the last 300 years…the ones who he had risen with to their current status as they trounced the former order of the Bijuu with their greatest leader…finally gathered together at last…

Kyuubi grunted in amusement, "It's been a while since the ten of us last convened hasn't it?"

The Reibi was the one to answer, "Indeed Kyuubi, not since the time that our leader's passing…"

Shukaku spoke up, "Yes, not since we became leaderless…had it not been for Kyuubi guiding us up to this point we would not be where we are."

Nibi purred out a response, "Indeed…but it is time we chose a true leader…one who can bring us above what we are…and we now have that opportunity."

Sanbi snarled, "When can we choose a leader…I have nothing against Kyuubi, but we have been idle for far too long for my tastes."

Yonbi spoke in a wise yet aggravated tone, "I must agree. Without true leadership we will merely disappear into history like most of the fallen Bijuu."

Gobi added, "Indeed, hardly anyone remembers that old dog except for his chosen clan."

Rokubi gurgled out, "I hope the chance we have been waiting for does not pass us by…we will not get another chance like this."

Shichibi buzzed out, "Indeed, we may be immortal, but we can only be sealed a few times before we cannot be sealed again, and most of us are on our last host."

Hachibi grunted towards Kyuubi, "So…what is the plan Kyuubi, or is it a work in progress as usual?"

Kyuubi looked at Hachibi in annoyance, "I have a plan…Hachibi…by the end of the next few months…we will have a new leader…"

The Bijuu nodded their heads as they faded into darkness, leaving Kyuubi in the mindscape…pondering their next move.

With Naruto, Team meeting spot

Naruto was walking up to the teams meeting spot at the bridge at 5:00 in the morning…again.

He had bags under his eyes that probably broke Konoha records. He had spent the entire night training himself into the ground; trying to forget that image from wave…it didn't work. Every time he closed his eyes he saw Haku's mangled corpse as he buried her in the ground…he saw the blood on his hands as he carried her in the ground…he…why can't he just forget it?

He shook his head and slumped to the ground as his 'teammates' arrived at the bridge…

"Oh Sasuke-kun, want to go on a date with me tonight?" Naruto snorted at the annoying banshee, 'How the hell could I have ever liked her?'

"No", Naruto made a mental note, 'That's the 50th time he has rejected her since we returned from wave'.

The two noticed Naruto and decided to comment, "Hmm, hey dobe, why do you even bother showing up when everyone knows you won't make it as a shinobi." Sasuke waited for Naruto's response, when he got none he grew angry, "Answer your superior's dobe!" Naruto merely glanced at Sasuke and went back to ignoring him…

Sakura shouted her agreement, "Yeah dobe, you should be on your knee's thanking Sasuke for acknowledging your existence." Naruto clenched his fist and released a small amount of killing intent…it wasn't much, but it was more than enough to make the other two tremble in fear…

'Naruto…the baka is never like this.'

'How can the dobe release such Killing intent…I should be the one to have this skill and power.'

Naruto stopped releasing killing intent as Kakashi entered the field. Kakashi saw that his two favorite students were trembling worse than tey did on the wave mission, he looked to see that Naruto had no reaction, he narrowed his eyes thinking that the dobe had caused this, "Naruto…what did you do to your teammates?" Naruto glared at Kakashi and snarled out a response…

"I shut them up Hatake, get used to this." Naruto got up and walked in front of Kakashi, "Now, what excuse will it be today, I am not in the mood today so I would like to know why you are late so I can get to training myself since you clearly only care about the Uchiha…so…?" Kakashi released a small amount of killing intent that didn't even faze the blond. He sighed and rubbed his temple…

"Ok, I had to get these papers so you three could sign up for the Chunin exams." Kakashi pulled out three forms, before he could pass them out Naruto snatched one out of his hands as he quickly signed the form and shoved it back in the Jonin's hand.

"Is that all?" Kakashi sighed and nodded his head as Naruto left the field. The other two genin quickly signed the papers as they followed the blond, wondering what was going on with him…

With Naruto

Naruto was walking through the village, that same feeling that has been driving him crazy for the last two weeks occurring again and again. Ever since those people entered the village he felt…incomplete, as if there was something he needed to accomplish.

Naruto was about to make a left turn when, "Hey Naruto!" Naruto turned around to see Sakura coming up the street, "What the hell is wrong with you dobe, you ignored Sasuke, you disrespected sensei…what the hell is going on here?!" Naruto turned around and began walking off, "And on top of that, you haven't asked me for a date once since we got back from wave…what's the deal?!" Naruto just kept walking, "I'm talking to you." She ran after him as a square stone came out in front of her, she tried to stop but ended up tripping right over the rock, crushing it…wait, what?!

Naruto heard a crash and turned around to find Sakura laying on top of box that was on top of Konohamaru and two other brats, "Konohamaru…why are you crushed under Sakura?" Konohamaru smiled at the blond and shouted…

"We were training boss; we were looking for you so you could play ninja with us." Naruto chuckled at the three…that is until Sakura put her two cents in.

"Psh, what would a ninja be doing playing ninja?" the three kids looked at Sakura and then at Naruto, the little girl amongst the brats raises her hand and starts shaking it in the air. Naruto noticed this…

"What is it kid." The girl stopped shaking her hand…

"Is she your girlfriend?" Naruto quirked an eye at the girls question and let out a soft and sad chuckle…

"No…no she isn't" Naruto turned to walk off, "Nor will she ever be." Sakura was shocked at Naruto's proclamation…she wondered what had happened to the blond. Konohamaru ran up to Naruto and tried to get him to talk. When that didn't work he decided to grab Naruto's shuriken pouch and began running off with it, "Hey, give that back you brat." Naruto chased after Konohamaru. He was about to make a jump for the brat when he noticed a man wearing a black cat suit…he was one of the genin who came into the village with the sand genin that caught his interest.

Konohamaru turned around and ended up running right into the sand genin. He looked up as his shirt was grabbed by the cat man with make-up, "You little shit, I ought to teach you some manners."The genin was about to hit him when the blond haired kunoichi next to him grabbed his wrist…

"Kankuro, now is not the time, if you want to hit someone wait for the exams…or 'he' will be angry." The one known as Kankuro shivered a bit and threw the kid to the ground…

"Fine Temari…where the hell is Gaara anyway?" Kankuro looked up to see Naruto glaring at him.

The two glared at each other until Naruto quirked an eyebrow, he then snapped his head towards the tree as he saw the sand genin that caught his interest appear in a swirl of sand. He was followed by Sasuke appearing in a swirl of leaves. Naruto stared at the sand genin…this was one of the genin that released an aura of familiarity…but why.

Gaara was staring at Naruto as Sasuke appeared right next to the blond…

"What is your name?" Sasuke smirked and answered…

"My name is Uchiha Sas…" He was silenced by a glare from Gaara…

"Not you" he turned his attention towards Naruto, "Him." Naruto went wide eyed, why was this guy asking for his name?

"My name is Uzumaki Naruto…" Gaara glared at him again…

"Who do you contain?" Naruto was shocked beyond belief…how did this guy know he contained a Bijuu.

Gaara was curious about why he was asking that question…but it was what his mother wanted, "Yes…which Bijuu do you sire?"

Naruto swallowed a lump in his throat, "Kyuubi no Yoko…how did you know what I was." Sasuke and Sakura looked at Naruto in shock and fear…he was the container of the demon that almost destroyed their village years ago?

Gaara smiled, "I know for I contain one of it's brethren…the Ichibi no Shukaku…we will meet again." Gaara shunshined away in a swirl of sand as his teammates followed.

Naruto was still wide eyed…but he was excited…there was another like him…he wondered if there was any other's in the world. He smirked and continued to walk off as the five individuals with him stared at him with fear.

The Next Day

Naruto arrived at the front of the Academy where they would all be testing for Chunin. His teammates had arrived and were keeping their distance from him. He smiled as they all walked into the building…
