Naruto: Negima Sensei
Chapter 8: Weird Days
AN and Apology: Well dang, it's been a while. One of the reasons I haven't updated is because I wanted to get better at writing and I've been just plain busy with school, and college... *Sigh* I really have no excuse, but I'll try to start updating again faster.
This chapter is redone because it was rushed and just not as good as the others. Enjoy and as always leave a review
He reached the academy rooftop where a figure was waiting for him.
"Did you just wake up?" Naruto asked standing next to the sitting figure.
"I get so tired during the afternoons," Replied a drowsy Evangeline. Naruto smirked and helped her up.
"So did you tell him? He's been acting like I thought he would," Naruto asked. Eva smirked and placed a hand on Naruto's cheek.
"What are you up to?" She asked with sly smirk, "Giving your own brother up, so easily. You know he won't be able to find a partner by the next full moon."
Naruto smiled and said, "He'll find one, because I thrust him to. Although it is kind of obvious that he won't be able to beat you… yet. I'll just have to level the playing field."
Before Eva could reply she froze. "I feel something coming," she said turning to the sky. "Someone has broken the barrier and entered the school district. There's no helping it. I'll go investigate."
Eva began to turn when Naruto smirked and crossed his arms, "I didn't know you cared," Naruto taunted causing the girl to pause.
"Shut up," Eva blushed as she began to walk away. Naruto shrugged before following.
"That's 2 to 1 and we're in the lead," Kyuubi said with his own smirk.
Negi and Naruto were walking through the countryside when Negi ran off in a different direction. Naruto followed in interest until the reached a small trap.
"Brother I found and ermine," Negi exclaimed holding out the little creature. Naruto walked up to him and examined the animal. He examined the trap.
"Why is it in a trap?" Naruto asked with suspicion.
Negi ignored Naruto and healed the creatures wound.
"Thank you bro," The ermine said with a a sigh of relief.
Naruto frowned and grabbed the creature in a flash.
"Hey let go of me!" It exclaimed. Naruto raised an eyebrow at the creature.
"It looks tasty," Kyuubi growled.
"What's your name?" Naruto asked
"Albert Chamomile," the creature responded in fright as it stared up at Naruto. Naruto gave the creature a gentle smile and handed him over to Negi. "Your lucky my brother is a kind person."
Naruto watched as Negi released the creature into the bushes. As it ran away a village mage ran up to them.
"Hey! who let the pervert escape?" the man asked in distress.
Naruto palmed his forehead and looked at Negi who was smiling sheepishly.
Chamo watched from the bushes as Negi and Naruto made up a lie about how the creature escaped.
"Those two saved my life," he thought, "I owe them big time." Chamo turned to walk away and gave a devious smirk. "Now were are the ladies?"
"What are you doing here?" Naruto asked picking Chamo up by the tail.
He and Eva had followed the magic signature and found the source. A white ermine that Naruto quickly recognized.
"Long time no see bro," Chamo greeted.
"That rat of all things. I still want to eat him," Kyuubi growled.
Naruto smiled and put Chamo on his shoulder. Eva watched with a frown.
"Why is that rat here?" She asked in an annoyed tone."Does it belong to you?"
Chamo was about to respond when he felt Eva's glare.
"I'll stay quite for my own safety," Chamo thought.
"Chamo actually belongs to Negi. It's a long story. Why are you here?" Naruto asked turning to the ermine.
"I heard that little bro was here and wanted to help him," Chamo replied.
Naruto smirked and put the creature down.
"Do what you wish," he said, "But don't get in trouble. I know how you are."
Chamo saluted and ran away, "Later bro!" He exclaimed.
Naruto turned to Eva who crossed her arms.
"That was a waste of time," she said crossing her arms, "I thought I'd at least get to fight something." She began to walk away. "I'm going home all this excitement is tiring." Eva paused and turned to Naruto. "I wouldn't be displease if you came to my house sometime."
The comment caught Naruto by surprise.
"Nice one,"Kyuubi chuckle.
Naruto nodded. Eva turned away and smiled before walking away. Naruto watched her leave before giving a small smile and walking away.
In a dark location:
"Tanaka, Ayumi ya back, How'd it go?"
"Shut it Relent!"
"Gat ya arse handed ta ya?"
The female voice growled.
"Tanaka it's ok. Well get stronger."
"Ha, Stronga? Ya wimps? Please let a real pro take care of the girl."
"Relent, calm yourself. You are loud."
"Galex? Y should ah, Am SATRONGA THAN YA!"
The room began to shake. Suddenly all went quite.
"Relent, if your skills are so refined, then I have a mission for you."
"What is it?"
"Return to that school and capture the one who defeated Tanaka and Ayumi."
"Is that it? I'll be done by dinna."
Laughter echoed out through the room.
When the laughter disappeared the voice spoke again, "Galex, go after him in case he fails. Capture that man."
"Yes, my master"
"Tanaka, Ayumi, what was this man that defeated you like?"
"I don't know how to explain it, but he reminds me of Zanza,"
"Zanza? Interesting I was planning on calling him back soon, but until then you two are going to undergo true change.
"We're ready master."
"Alright Negi let's see what you can do," Naruto said.
He and Negi were at the lake near their house. Negi clenched his wand and glared at Naruto. He had been waiting for this day for a long time. Naruto had finally agreed to train him.
"Here I come, brother!" Negi exclaimed. He charged at Naruto.
"Stop!" Naruto commanded.
Negi skidded to a halt.
"What is it?" he asked.
Naruto shook his head and began to walk away. "You're still not ready," he said. "We'll try again tomorrow."
Negi watched his brother walk away confused and hurt. He didn't get what Naruto meant. Was he too young or was he too weak? Negi wanted to know. He had been looking forward to this day for a long time. Negi returned home with his head down.
The next day the same thing happened. He charged at his brother only for Naruto to tell him that he wasn't ready. This happened again for the next four days. After the fifth day Negi confronted Naruto.
"Brother why are you telling me that I'm not ready, even though you said you would train me?" Negi asked.
Naruto looked at his younger brother and frowned.
"You truly aren't ready," he replied and walked away.
Negi ran back to the house in tears. He ran straight into Nekane who began to comfort him.
"Why is brother being so mean?" Negi cried "He keeps on telling me that I'm not ready, but he tells me to train with him."
Nekane hugged her cousin and gave him a gentle smile.
"Negi," she said in a calm tone, "Do you think you're ready?"
Negi looked up at her for a moment through tear-stained eyes before nodding.
"Then you are ready. Don't let anyone else tell you differently."
Negi's eyes widened in realization, He gave Nekane a tight hug before running out the door. Nekane watched him run out of the house with a smile. Suddenly Naruto phased next to her. He had a small smile as he watched Negi.
"You have a strange way of teaching things," Nekane said looking at him.
Naruto smirked as he continued to look at Negi.
"No, not really, but I figured that he would get it eventually. All he needed was a little help." Naruto replied. He faded away leaving Nekane with a smile.
Negi ran towards the lake non-stop. When he reached it he saw Naruto waiting for him.
"Brother," Negi panted, "I don't care what you say I am ready."
Negi held out his wand and charged at Naruto. Naruto smiled and prepared himself.
"The first thing you had to learn was to believe in yourself," Naruto said blocking a kick from Negi. "As long as you have that you'll always be strong."
Naruto waited until class ended and walked up to Setsuna. The rest of the class watched in shock, jealousy, and other dark emotions as Naruto asked her to take a walk with him.
After passing all the gossip Naruto and Setsuna reached an outdoor cafe that Naruto had come to like. The waiter there was a young University student named Nori. Nori had taken quite a liking to Naruto. When she saw Setsuna with Naruto she quickly walked up to him.
"Naruto-kun," she said with a hiss, "What can I get for you and your date?"
Naruto chuckled, "She's not my date. we just have things to discuss." Naruto wasn't aware that Setsuna looked away with a blush.
After hearing this Nori looked at Setsuna and smiled.
"What would you like?" she went away when the two had placed their orders. After eating Naruto took a calm tone.
"I want to see how strong you are," Naruto simply stated.
"What do you mean?" Setsuna asked.
"Well, I already told you my mission, but its obvious that either you aren't strong enough to protect your ward or some unforeseen event has happened that you will need help with."
"Harsh," Kyuubi smirked.
"If she can't deal with it then too bad," Naruto thought crossing his arms.
Setsuna seemed hurt by Naruto's words. She clenched her fists and looked straight into Naruto's eyes.
"There is a dojo near here that we could spar in," she replied.
Naruto smirked and said, "Lead the way."
The traveled quickly to the dojo.
"It's empty," Naruto thought out loud.
"The owner allowed me a key because I come here frequently," Setsuna went into the backroom and brought back two wooden swords. She tossed one to Naruto and went into a stance. "This is the best way to see my strength right?" Setsuna asked in a serious tone.
Naruto smirked and said, "Alright, let's see your skills." Setsuna charged at Naruto who stood still. "Stop!" Naruto exclaimed.
Setsuna ignored him and delivered an upward slash that barely missed Naruto's left ear.
"Feisty," Kyuubi commented.
Naruto smirked as he flipped back.
Setsuna smirked and said, "The first thing I learned was to never doubt myself,"
She went into a stance and prepared to strike when Naruto said, "Is that so?" Naruto frowned, "Then why is your doubt rolling off you in waves?" Setsuna flinched. "You're scared," Naruto continued, "Scared that you won't be able to save your ward, scared that you'll fail her, and worst of all scared that you'll have to watch her die in slow agony."
Naruto saw Setsuna's grip on her sword tighten. He smirked and rushed her. He pelted her with blow after blow. Setsuna had a hard time keeping up with his unrelenting barrage. He quickly backed her into a corner.
Naruto watched her struggle and taunted her, "What will you do now Sakurazaki? How does it feel to be cornered?"
"Zankusen (Air-Cutting Flash)" Setsuna exclaimed.
Naruto's eyes widened as a circular wave of ki exploded from Setsuna and slashed him. He flew back and hit the opposite wall. He quickly stood up and went into a stance only to watch as his sword shattered into pieces.
"Not bad." Kyuubi smirked.
"Not bad at all," Naruto smirked, "But there's more than one way to fight."
Naruto went into a crouched stance and waited for Setsuna. She quickly shook off her fright and charged at Naruto.
"Are you sure she'll be a good partner?" Negi asked Chamo. Negi was walking through the academy halls with Chamo on his shoulder.
The ermine smirked and said, "Trust me bro, by the time we're done you'll have passed Naruto bros test. We have to find you a strong partner because the stronger they are, the stronger you'll be. So we should find out as much about these girls as we can."
Negi nodded and walked into his empty classroom. Chamo hopped off his shoulder and began to rummage through the desks.
"I really don't feel right doing this," Negi said with worry.
"Whoa!" Chamo exclaimed, "Take a look at this."
"What?" Negi exclaimed.
Chamo pulled a notebook out from one of the desks. Negi frowned and was about to examine the book when his conscious got the better of him. He shut the book and put it back.
"We should get out of here," he said to Chamo.
"Yeah, Chamo said with a little disappointment.
As Negi walked away from the classroom he couldn't help but have the feeling that there was something about the notebook.
"I swore I felt a trace of magic on it," he thought clenching his staff.
Negi was unaware of the figure hidden in the shadows silently watching him.
Setsuna fell unconscious into Naruto's arms. Naruto stared at the girl in silence. She had bruises all over her body.
"Let's heal her. The last thing we need is people calling us abusers."
Naruto nodded and used The Life to heal her. Naruto looked outside. Night had fallen and they were the only two in the dojo.
"She's a strong girl, but if she can't accept herself, she'll end up getting killed," Naruto said out loud.
Naruto sat next to Setsuna until she woke up.
"Are you well?" he asked her. Setsuna nodded, but stayed silent. "What's wrong?" Naruto asked easily sensing the hesitation.
"You… healed me?" Setsuna asked. Naruto nodded. He could see where this was going and sighed.
"Do you want me to train you?" Naruto asked.
Setsuna looked away causing Naruto to smile.
"I…If you don't mind," she said with a blush.
"Alright, we'll train," Naruto said, "Maybe by the time we're done, the hesitation in your heart will disappear." Setsuna blushed even more. Naruto stood up and offered her a hand. "Here I'll walk you home."
Setsuna shook her head and stood up.
"I'll be fine," she replied. She walked to the door and turned to Naruto. "Goodnight Naruto sensei." she said with a bow.
Naruto watched her walk out of the dojo and smiled.
"She's a strong girl," Kyuubi said in a gentle tone.
Naruto nodded in agreement. He closed his eyes and sat in silence.
The next day, after school was over Naruto was monitoring the grounds when he sensed a burst of magic. He quickly sensed the signatures as Negi's and phased to the location.
"What are you three doing?" Naruto asked in a serious tone when he appeared near them.
He walked toward Negi, an ermine, Asuna, and Nodoka Miyazaki, who was knocked out for some reason. The other three stared at Naruto until he approached.
"B, brother," Negi managed to spurt out.
Naruto raised an eyebrow as he looked at the scene. He read the air and grabbed the ermine by its tail.
"Chamo, what are you trying to do?" Naruto asked in a strict tone.
Albert Chamomile knew a lot about the magic world. He knew who not to anger and he knew that Naruto Springfield was not to be angered.
Before the ermine could answer Naruto smirked and dropped him, "I really don't want to know," Naruto waved at Negi before walking away. "Good luck brother."
"He plans on getting a partner before the next full moon huh?" Kyuubi asked. "He seems into it."
Naruto paused and looked back. Negi and Asuna where arguing while Chamo watched in interest. Naruto frowned at the site. Something about it didn't sit too well with him.
"It'll be interesting to see who he chooses," Naruto said out loud, "But for his sake I hope it doesn't come back to haunt him."
Over the next few days Naruto watched from afar as Negi, Chamo, and strangely Asuna looked for a partner for Negi. Naruto was currently standing on a nearby rooftop watching the three. They were following Chachamaru to see if she had any weaknesses or so Naruto thought.
"Sometimes your brother is an idiot,"
"Naruto-Sensei," A voice said. Naruto turned to see Setsuna next to him, "You said that I should follow them with you, but I don't get the point. I thought we were supposed to train."
Naruto smiled and turned back to Negi.
"Watch them Setsuna. They'll show you something you're lacking," Naruto replied in a calm tone. They continued to watch until Negi and Asuna confronted Chachamaru. "They're about to begin." Naruto smirked.
Naruto's eyes widened when Negi activated a partner spell.
"Why with her of all people?" He thought in grimace.
Setsuna was confused she thought that Naruto-Sensei was honorable, but he wanted her to watch Negi and Asuna double team Chachamaru. There was no honor in that. At first Asuna got the upper hand leaving Chachamaru open for Negi's spell, but what Negi did surprised her.
Just as his twenty arrows of light were about to hit. Negi recalled them causing them to hit him instead.
Naruto who was watching turned to Setsuna and gave a small smile. "That's what I wanted to show you," he said pointing a finger at the now arguing Negi and Asuna. That's what you're lacking. You're not an idiot."
Setsuna could only reply with, "Huh?"
Naruto was currently asleep when Kyuubi woke him.
"They're here," Kyuubi warned.
Naruto sighed and prepared himself.
"Always in the morning. No respect whatsoever," Naruto thought.
"They know when people are at their weakest," Kyuubi replied.
It was 1:00 in the morning when Naruto entered the school grounds.
"Kyuubi," Naruto thought.
"I got it. How long?"
"Max distance," Naruto replied.
"Alright ten miles. It'll cost a good amount of magic though," Kyuubi growled creating a magic barrier.
"Alright come on out," Naruto said out loud.
A figure landed in front of Naruto. He had wild blue hair and his face was covered by a gray metallic mask that had two large eye holes that glowed yellow. The only thing on the mask was red vertical line that cut through the middle. The man wore a black cloak with large sleeves. The cloak was split below the waist revealing the man's Black cargo jeans and combat boots.
"Ya," he said, "So ya the one, huh?"
Naruto stared at the man and sighed, "I thought I told those other girls to warn your people."
"Those two wa weak," the man replied. "Am inna whole otha league."
"Is that so?" Naruto asked. He brought his hand and covered his face. Naruto willed the magic in the air to surround his face . Naruto condensed the magic and created his Avatar's Mask. "Then I don't have to hold back anything."
The figure began to cackle, "Alright let's do this!" Naruto disappeared and reappeared in front of the man. "Wha?" The man exclaimed.
Naruto grabbed the man's shoulder and snapped with his free hand. The man was instantly pelted from all sides by the Thirteen Totem pole. when the assault was finished Naruto used the Chidori and pierced the man's heart.
The man fell dead at Naruto's feet.
"So you killed Relent?" A voice asked.
Naruto turned to face a man with long blue hair wearing the same outfit as the man Naruto had just killed except his colors where white. Unlike his dead comrade, this man had no mask. He had a clear face with light blue eyes.
"And you are?" Naruto asked releasing his mask.
"My name is Galex and my comrade there is Relent," the man answered.
Naruto looked at the dead Relent. He shrugged and looked back at Galex.
"Looks like I killed your partner, sorry about that," Naruto said.
Galex gave a small smile and said, "It is a pity, but I still have a mission."
Just as he said that The world turned black.
"What?" Naruto gasped.
"I can't sense anything," Kyuubi exclaimed.
Suddenly a sharp pain coursed through Naruto's body. He fell to the ground clutching his sides.
"How do we escape this?" Kyuubi asked in pain.
The pain subsided and Naruto tried to stand only to fall back down.
The darkness disappeared and Galex stood over Naruto.
"That went as planned," Galex said out loud.
"No one can beat me," a voice said. The man named Relent stood up void of all injury and walked over to the body of Naruto. He cast a spell that bounded Naruto with invisible ropes. Relent picked him up and turned to Galex. "Let's get back. I wanna rub it in those two girls faces."
Galex shook his head, "Why do you enjoy that so much?"
The two turned and began to walk away.
Naruto watched from afar as the walked away.
"Those two can't tell that that's a shadow clone." Kyuubi jested
"I haven't used the technique in a while, but it's worked out well," Naruto replied with a smirk.
"Time for a hunt," Kyuubi growled.
Naruto nodded and began to follow.
Unfortunately for Naruto what he hadn't expected was for Setsuna to watch him get captured.
"If they could defeat Naruto-Sensei so easily then I don't stand a chance. I have to tell Negi-Sensei," She thought jumping away. Setsuna gripped her sword harder in disgust with herself. She was weak and couldn't even help. Tears stained her eyes as she traveled to the dorms. "I just hope I'm not too late."
Naruto becomes the hunter, but a misunderstanding changes everything. What will happen next?
AN: I redid this chapter because the old one seemed rushed, and I hated that. How was this one?
