I do not own anything in relation to Naruto.
Seven Years After the Kyuubi Attack on Konoha
Naruto sat in the corner of his dank room with his knees drawn up to his chest eyes streaming with tears. The man who he had called "Oji-san" and had looked up had lied to him. One of the only handful of people who he thought actually liked him and thought of as family. He thought back to what he had found out.
Naruto had managed to dodge the ANBU guards of the Hokage tower and he got into the room. Looking around for his "Oji-san" he didn't see him. For as long as he could remembered he had wanted to become Hokage in his mind the main reason to be Hokage was he had lots of friends and everyone looked up to and admired him that was what Naruto wanted……. he had never understood why no one wanted to be his friend the only people who he had was "Oji-san, Anko-chan, Neko-chan, Kurenai-chan, Inu-san, Teuchi-ojisan and Ayame-chan".
Kurenai-chan and Anko-chan had even taught him how to read and to write. But even thought he had them he wanted friends at least around his age but still he was thankful for the friends he had. But still one thing continued to plague him he never knew his parents he didn't even have any memories of them, he had asked, pleaded and cried to "oji-san" to tell him who his parents were but he never told him, he wanted so much to know about them to know if they had at least loved him.
Now he was in the Hokage's office alone waiting for his Oji-san, tomorrow was his birthday and he wanted to know if he had gotten any presents. After sitting still for about two minutes he couldn't help but fell bored. Looking around the office for a good minute for any secret present hiding places the four pictures on the wall caught his attention. They were the pictures of the previous Hokage's.
He pushed the chair towards the wall and hopped onto it to inspect the pictures closer. Starting at the first one he saw Hashirama Senju the First Hokage one of the most powerful shinobe of his time and a ninja renowned for his Wood release ninjutsu and battle prowess.
The second picture was of the Second Hokage Hashirama's brother Tobirama Senju also one of the greatest shinobe of his era. He was most renouned for his god-like affinity for water being able to pull water from the very air around them. As mush as he was renouned for his water ninjutsu skills he was also known for his Kenjutsu along with the sword that he had wielded the legendary Raijin-no-ken.
The next one after him was the Sandaime Hokage, Sarutobi Hizuren. He chuckled when he saw oji-san's name " Oji-san sure looks younger back then" he mused. But he knew even thought he was old oji-san was known as the "God of Shinobi", he was given the title because of the massive amount of ninjutsu he was said to have known, he was also a master tactician and strategist.
He then came to the fourth and last picture on the wall. The Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze the man he looked up to and admired every since he had heard stories of him from his battles in the Third Great Shinobi war to his Legendary defeat of the demon the Kyuubi-no-Kitsune. He was said to be a master in the art if Fuin-jutsu or the sealing arts. And he was also known by the name that the ninja's of the hidden rock had given him "Konoha's Yellow Flash" a testament to one of his most powerful techniques the "Hiraishin" of the Flying Thunder God technique a jutsu said to be able to make him move at the speed of light.
As he stared at the picture for a full minute going over every detail of the picture when he noticed something. He saw his own faint reflection against the picture and he noticed something that completely startled him his reflection and the picture looked eerily similar. Could the Yondaime be related to him?.
Naruto was practically bursting with excitement could his idol be some sort of family member that oji-san had forgotten to mention somehow?. He raised his hand to the picture and traced over the Yondaime's face as he stretched to reach the picture the chair lurched forward making his finger drag across the wooden frame of the picture.
This caused a cut and said finger caused by the smooth edge of the picture frame letting a few drops of blood to fall against the picture frame immediately a seal array appeared on the frame and with a poof of smoke the picture swung forward to reveal a hollowed out space behind the picture revealing three scrolls and a leather bound book that had a seal lock on the front.
Looking at the scrolls and the book he felt as though the smaller scroll was calling him, it was like this little pull in the back of his mind, so he reached towards it.
He figured that it was the same as the picture and smeared a small amount of blood on the seal and with a poof of smoke two letters appeared folded up both addressed to him. Unraveling the one closest to him he began to read.
If you are reading this then you're old enough to understand what I'm about to say. My mane is Minato Namikaze, the Yondaime Hokage and more importantly you father. I cannot write a lot. The Kyuubi is currently heading towards Konoha. I ……….. I have no choice my son but to seal the beast within you my son. I beg your forgiveness for doing this but I cannot ask anyone else to do these only someone of my own flesh and blood. I regret that I won't be there for your first walk, speech and when you become a ninja. I'm sorry but I don't think your mother will be able to make it she also wrote you a letter it's sealed along with this. There are also our technique scrolls that we left to you, the both have training regimens to follow to keep fit and in order to do certain techniques. Again my son I beg you forgiveness and hope that the village sees you as they should the hero that saved them from Kyuubi. Your Father,
Naruto's eyes were teaming with tears his own father….. his own father had sealed the Kyuubi into him causing the entire village save a certain few to hate him as though he was the beast itself making him the village pariah.
As the tears were streaming down his face he let out an empty chuckle "a sacrifice for the village only to be scorned, hated and ignored" he whispered. But even though he hated what had happened he understood his father's reasoning. "Who else to trust but his own flesh and blood" he mused.
Wiping the tears from his eyes he turned to the other letter… his mother's letter as he unfolded it noticed that is was dotted with smudges……….. The smudges he realized were tears.
My name is Kushina Uzumaki and your mother. I…… I waited so long just to see you and to hold you in my arms and now I have to be taken away from you , I don't know if a did something to anger Kami in my life or some previous life to have her take me away from you. I hope you can forgive me Naru-chan forgive me for not being there. It hurts so much to know that I won't be able…………. That I won't be able to be there for you to see you grow up to see you get married and to see my grandbabies (you better have a lot). To not be there for your birthday and to experience everything that you go through with you.
I had put so much effort into those training schedule and the jutsus on the scrolls. I…….. was hoping that we could have done them together when you had gotten older but it seems that you will just have to learn them yourself. It's……… it's nearly time for me to go Naru-chan but before I go one last piece of advice.
You don't have to be in Konoha to be great I know my share of hardships so I know what I'm talking about when I say that I don't have as much faith in the villager's as you father that they will accept you but the main thing is you don't have to stay you can explore the world learn new things become what to want to become. I know the hardships and suffering that one can endure in life so son my one request to you is to live your life to the fullest and never give up until the end even if you have to leave this village to do so.
This is good bye my son, I've left my diary along with some of the picture that I had if you decide to leave I ask that you visit the Land of the Whirlpools. Good luck and good bye my son.
He looked at the letter silently for a moment then folded it up he collected the twoo scrolls and the book and shoved them into his pockets. After replacing everything in the office the way that is was before he left headed towards his apartment.
Still in the corner he pulled out his mother's diary and took out a picture of his father and his mother while his mom was still pregnant with him he ran his fingers over their face the parent that he had never knew the ones that he had yearned for so long.
While doing this Naruto made up his mind he knew………… he knew that the people in the village would do their outmost best to prevent him from becoming a great ninja so that left only one thing he was going to leave the village and he was going to do so with a bang.
It was around two in the morning of October the tenth when an explosion rocked the village and lit up the early morning sky and huge flames consumed the apartment building that housed only one occupant………….. Naruto Uzumaki.
As the flames lit up the sky ANBU's and most of the ninja's in the village raced towards the fire the first to reach the burning building were ANBU's Inu and Neko as they saw the flames consume the building their only thought was "NARUTO!!".
They both flashed through hand seals and both simultaneously shouted "Water-style: Water Dragon Jutsu" and at the same time two dragon made of water sped towards the burning building as the water doused the flames the two ninja's along with their teams quickly sped into the ruins looking for any sign of Naruto.
After an hour of searching both teams had given up there was no body left no sent to be picked up nothing. Coming out of the rubble they were met with the faces of the Hokage, Kurenai, Anko, Ayame, and Teuchi as they looked at them expectantly the two ninja's shook their heads.
At this the girls had tears running down their faces the little boy that they had looked upon as a little brother was gone they would never see him again he was dead.
It was a few hours later that Sarutobi was sitting in his chair in the Hokage's office silently. The whole thing seemed unreal to him there had to be some reason to cause all of this to happen but what.
He continued to brood upon the situation as he surveyed his office as his sights set themselves on the pictures of the past Hokage's or more specifically on the Yondaime's as he continued to look at the picture it was then that he noticed that the picture was slightly tilted to the right.
But that wasn't right all the pictures were normally all the same way unless………. "Of coarse you fool the seal" he mentally berated himself as he reached up to the picture it swoung open reavealing an empty hollow were three scrolls and a book was supposed to be.
He now had connected the dots the buring of the apartment building the missing scroll's and the book along with them not finding Naruto's body he had concluded that Naruto was still alive.
In the forest's surrounding Fire country Naruto was running as fast as he could he was heading straight towards Water country when he reached there he would try to get to Whirlpool country. All in all it would be a long time before anyone saw Naruto Uzumaki again.
