Naruto Uchiha Namikaze

Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto, or any techniques from Bleach. Also the character 'Kagura' is owned by Dragon6.

Sorry about taking a long time to upload this story but I had trouble with it at some point so I have decided to rewrite the first chapter and expand it better. I know everyone wants the conclusion to the Naruto/Sasuke fight, but that should be out shortly, as I already have some of it done.

The Second Chapter with the actual fight will be back out soon, there will be some changes to it however.

Chapter 1: A Hero Returns Home

Takigakure

Slave Camp

In a dense jungle that went on for miles inside of Kusagakure, a bunch of bandits and some missing nin from various villages were laughing, drinking, and chatting about how they raided a small village, killing men, children and women alike. In the camp they had captured women who were ages 14 to 35 and imprisoned in cages as a sort of victory trophy. They were whimpering and crying because they knew that with being captured by bandits and missing nin, they would plan on raping them and doing unspeakable things to them.

Just then all of the mentioned bandits and missing nin got up and approached the cages looking like animals on the hunt with bottles of sake swinging around, showing just how drunk they were, terrifying the woman and hoping for a miracle to drop down.

"Hahaha, look at them crying and whimpering." One bandit said with a malicious smile on his face as some women duck their heads away scared to death.

Another bandit stepped forward with a smirk on his face. "Hahaha, it just makes it all the more fun."

"Well, then…" A missing nin with a slashed Iwagakure headband. "…Why are we waiting?" He said as he unlocked a cage and pulled a woman out who looked to be in her twenties, kicking and screaming the whole time only for the missing nin to slap her. "Shut it bitch, soon you'll be screaming for a different reason." He said with insane laughter at the end with everyone else joining in.

Before anyone could do anything a voice called out through the forest. "Raiton: Byakurai!" (Lightning Release: Pale Lightning) A large streak of condensed yellow lightning burst from the behind the trees and struck the missing nin in the side of the head killing the man instantly, allowing the woman to drop down and scramble back.

"You people disgust me, humans like you should never exist." Everyone looked to the side to see a figure that appeared as an 18 year old young man, he stood at an impressive height of 6 ft. 2, he had blond spiky hair with black highlights that stood up all over the place that flown down past his shoulder blades, much like Madara Uchiha's hairstyle looked like. His face was unblemished not so much as a spot of dust on his tanned faced that seemed to glow in the radiant sunlight that shone through all the many trees around him. He had dark onyx eyes that displayed some warmth in them but not as much as they use to, on his left ear he had an earring of what looked like a phoenix that dangled slightly on a very short chain. His face was set in to a blank stare as if he was staring at nothing at all, despite the fact he was staring at a bunch of rapists, murders and anything else that can be considered a crime with rage and hate.

He wore steel toed black combat boot along with a pair of baggy black cargo pants with various extra pockets, a shuriken and kunai holster strapped to each leg due to becoming ambidextrous. He also had a utility belt with several pouches on it along with scrolls for easier use. He wore a normal black t-shirt that had an upturned colour covering his neck, on top of that he wore a black sleeveless trench coat with crimson fire licking the bottom much like his father's own trench coat, due to having no sleeves on it his t-shirt covered up his biceps only, however he did wear a pair of fingerless gloves which seemed perfect for fighting as they had metal plating fitted in.

On the back of the trench he had the kanji for Shinku Senko (Crimson Flash) in gold stitching vertically. The trench coat's collar stood up covering his neck. Around his neck was also a beautiful silver chained necklace where it held a replica of a phoenix along with another beautiful necklace he had received from Tsunade Senju. And last but not least Hyōrinmaru strapped to his left side in his utility belt showing off its beauty while also being perfectly placed for a quick draw.

Hyōrinmaru looks like a normal katana with the exception of the guard, which is in the shape of a four-pointed bronze-coloured star. Its hilt is light blue and sheath dark blue, the blade was also at about 1.4 meters long.

This was Naruto Uzumaki or as he is really called Naruto Uchiha Namikaze, however this is not known to many people for obvious reasons. He was the son of Namikaze Minato the Yondaime Hokage and Uchiha Mikoto, also unknown to a lot of people.

You see what many people didn't know was that Fugaku Uchiha's wife had an affair with the Yondaime as the Uchiha head was never in love with the woman, instead she was a political wife forced in to a marriage. Despite that she had to stay married to protect her children from the Uchiha clan, as well as those who wish to harm her sons.

The only way he actually knew all of this was when he had met Itachi on his travels; at first he thought he was there to capture him for Akatsuki. So it came to quite a shock once Itachi revealed the truth about everything, opening Naruto's world to so many possibilities, along with sadness that was soon to come.

It was quite a shame no-one ever looked up Naruto's family history otherwise the council would shit themselves. What was even more ironic was that after Sasuke had killed Itachi, he was welcome back in the village with open arms as if he had took a stroll in the forest for a few years. He never knew why Sasuke went back to Konoha though, and honestly he didn't care.

Naruto only knew of all this as he had kept in contact with Jiraiya who had believe it or not, gone behind the councils back and trained him somewhat, however he wasn't the only one, he had many senses that he was eternally grateful for. But Jiraiya was the person who was always there for him as well as teaching him everything he knew, even going so far as to take him to Mt. Myōbokuzan to learn the sage arts. Now that was something he loved to learn, especially with being in such a peaceful environment.

Naruto had discovered that with having Kyuubi within him it had given him control over the five main elements and if he trained hard enough, sub-elements, something he could finally be grateful for from the Kyuubi.

So with that knowledge he went and learnt as many jutsu he could to expand his jutsu repertoire for all the many different situations that can come up in a battle. Something else he had worked on had been combining his Rasengan with elements, and he had to admit it was the hardest thing he had ever had to do before.

Naruto had gone to Kumogakure to learn all about Raiton so that he could master it faster, while there had met his fellow Jinchuriki who had helped him with his training secrets up in the mountains out of peoples way.

Killer Bee was the Jinchuriki of the Hachibi no Kyogyū and he had to say he thought of him as one of the greatest sensei ever, despite his poor raping he was able to get along with the dark skinned male as he always taught him what he needed and explained everything clearly for him so he didn't miss anything out.

Yugito Ni the was the Jinchuriki of the Nibi no Bakeneko, at first she was a bit cold towards him seeing as he was a stranger to her, but after some persuasion from Killer Bee she had started to talk to him a bit more slowly eventually becoming friends. She had taught him a bit in Raiton and Katon seeing as they were her elements while he too helped her in other areas which she was thankful for.

While training with them Killer Bee had introduced him to his three students.

Karui was a beautiful woman in his eyes; he had learnt though that she was an extremely tough woman, something he has come to realise with all Kunoichi he meets. She was also like the old him, how she always seemed to be cheerful, rash and spontaneous.

Samui was also a beautiful woman like her fellow teammate, he had noticed however that she always had back aches and well…considering the size of her breast which rivalled Tsunade's…he wasn't surprised, he had also ended up giving her massages her which became a regular basis.

Omoi, the only male on out of the three students was someone he could get along with easily, he had somewhat reminded him of Shikamaru only laid back instead of being …well lazy. A funny thing about him was how he would always over exaggerate about situations causing Karui to argue with him.

As he left them all he had said his good byes to them all promising to see them again, but what shocked him was when Karui suddenly grabbed him and kissed him shocking them all, before she walked off leaving a confused Naruto.

He had eventually ended up in Kirigakure to learn about Suiton jutsu seeing as that is where they specialize in that element. While there he had met the Mizukage and had found she was quiet flirtatious with him, something he didn't mind considering her beauty. However despite how much he wanted to he had told her nothing could happen…yet, while she was disappointed she understood clearly, that didn't stop her from leaving him with an eyeful though.

Soon after that he ended up in Sunagakure where he followed up on Futon manipulation as he knew all masters of the elements hailed from the great village. He progressed well in the art thanks to Gaara and Temari who had felt like they owed the blonde young man for saving Gaara from the darkness.

It was around the third year when Jiraiya had shown up before he took him to Mt. Myōbokuzan to learn the sage arts as well as expanding on his current jutsu. While there he had learnt much more and became a hell of a lot stronger thanks to the toads.

He had also met many other shinobi that helped with his elemental training across the countries, some of them started out as enemies, but using his charms he had won them over easily.

When he turned 17 thought the Kyuubi had revealed to him that the fox was dying as Naruto had almost absorbed all of his chakra faster than the seal had planned on to. In his parting he had named Naruto the new Kyuubi no Kitsune.

Despite not having the fox anymore he was still able to enter the transformations he would go through when the Kyuubi was within him only this time the chakra did not hurt him but rather help him. It was however still hard to maintain all the time as it was very strong chakra to take a hold of and maintain long enough.

There had been one change in him that was completely noticeable, something that made Jiraiya so happy he cried with pride, Naruto had discovered the wonders of Icha-Icha.

And now it was finally time to reveal himself once again…

A bandit who was clearly drunk laughed at the newcomer. "Hohoho, look what we have hear fellers, some punk kid wanting to play ninja." Je said laughing more along with the bandits while the missing nin were getting a bit scared at seeing the person shinobi came to fear when they saw the renowned Shinku Senko.

Naruto chuckled and shook his head. "You guys really need to pay attention to who you're talking to." He said narrowing his eyes and his hand gripped the hilt of Hyōrinmaru tightly, prepared to start killing.

One of the missing nin gulped fearfully and turned to his allies. "We should let it go, this guy is the Shinku Senko, we don't stand a chance." His fellow missing nins gave hesitant nods while some of the less…intelligent bandits laughed loudly.

"HA, as if this wannabe punk could ev-" His words were cut off as he started to spit out blood randomly, looking down he saw a silver katana stabbed through his heart from behind him.

Everyone else started getting panicked as they watched the blonde shinobi vanish from his spot and appearing behind the bandit, stabbing him in the chest like it was nothing, a cold steam started coming off of Naruto's katana when all of a sudden ice started to form over the bandit from the heart causing him to turn into an ice statue.

Naruto twisted Hyōrinmaru and yanked it out causing the former bandit to crack all the way from the point of origin at the heart before completely shattering into ice dust before blowing away in the wind as if he never stood there.

Naruto suddenly turned around and shot forward ice coming from his blade cutting down bandit and shinobi alike as if they were a mere flies on the wall, screams filled the forest as heads rolled, limbs were lost and half of those that were struck by Hyōrinmaru were turned to ice and breaking one by one as he cut the forces down.

The area was soon covered in icicles and bits of snow from the dead bandits and missing nin that once stood against the force known as Shinku Senko showing everyone why they should never screw him.

Naruto sheathed Hyōrinmaru securely and turned towards the cages where all of the women were looking at them in awe with small blushes on their faces at seeing their hero in action.

Walking over to them he unlocked all the cages causing all the women to run over to Naruto thanking him, hugging him and even kissing him all over for freeing them from a fate worse than death.

Naruto chuckled as he backed away slightly looking at them all. "Why don't I get you all back to your village so you can be with your loved ones?" He said with a smile as they all nodded their head vigorously with giant smiles on their faces.

Small Village Outside of Takigakure

Reaching the village Naruto found all of the women's family, friends and loved ones were waiting at the gate for them, as soon as they laid eyes on the women they immediately swarmed them thanking the gods they had been returned to them before anything terrible could happen.

Naruto watched the scene with a small smile on his face, glad he could reunite families with each other. Just as he was about to turn around and leave to get on his way an elderly voice stopped him in his tracks.. "Wait a minute young man!" The male voice says. Naruto turns around to see a man who looked to be about 70, crouched over slightly holding an envelope in his hands walking towards him. "Wait. Please take this money. It's for saving my daughter and everyone's loved one from those horrible bandits and shinobi." He says but Naruto shakes his head and smiles .

"No thanks old man, keep your money, I didn't do it for that." Naruto explained getting a look of shock and awe from him and the villagers. "A-are you sure? W-we were gonna pay for bringing them back. Didn't you do this for money?" He asks and Naruto's response was a shake of his head. "No sir, I just did what I thought as right besides if there's one thing I hate more than anything, it's bandits and missing nin who think they can do whatever the hell they like, and money right now is the least of my worries, use it for your own purpose." He said with a grin on his face.

The man just blinks at Naruto for a while but then smiles back. "Thank you so much young man, oh, where are my manners, my name is Momoji. We are forever in your debt for bringing the women back, we don't know what we would do if something had happened" He said bowing his head in thankfulness while everyone else also bowed.

Naruto simply chuckled and smiled. "You're welcome and if you have any more problems with bandits, look me up. Well it's time for me to go...see ya." He says as his body started to turn into ice before shattering leaving no sign of him being stood there.

Konoha

Hokage's Office

Tsunade Senju was currently sat behind her office contemplating on the latest news she had gotten, Akatsuki had been sighted close to Takigakure, and the only reason she could think of them being there is the Jinchuriki they currently have protected, but she knew they wouldn't be able to stop the Akatsuki…so that is why standing in front of her were the Rookie 12 along with Kakashi Hatake, Kurenai Yuuhi, Maito Gai and Asuma Sarutobi all awaiting orders.

Surprisingly, Sasuke Uchiha was also there, it would appear that after killing Itachi that he had realised he had no goal, no home, so he had gone back to Konoha where he was welcomed back with open arms, well from the civilians, the shinobi…not so much, too many had started to respect Naruto for what he had done and couldn't forgive Sasuke so easily.

The rookie 12 had changed quite a bit over the years since Naruto was banished.

Sakura had taken her training more seriously under Tsunade and became what people had dubbed, 'Mini Tsunade' with her strength and expertise in the medical department. She had also been dying to apologize to Naruto for what she has said to the boy as she had never been able to forgive herself. The fact that he was banished because of Sasuke didn't help matters either, especially when he waltzed back in Konoha and was welcomed back with open arms after despite the fact he was a traitor. She changed her outfit which now consisted of the same basic red top as in, with black gloves, black high-heeled boots, black shorts, short pink apron-like skirt, and pink elbow protectors. Sakura is now also armed with a Chūnin's Tantō above her Medical pouch; forehead protector has also changed to red in colour.

Ino had changed drastically, ever since she had confessed to Naruto she had become more focused on her training much to everyone's shock, she learnt most of her family's jutsu as well as an array of elemental jutsu that had helped her greatly in missions. Now she understood why Naruto loved jutsu's so much. The only person who wasn't shocked at her change was Shikamaru as he knew how the blondes felt for each other and it was only a matter of time before Ino confessed and started to commit, what he didn't count on was Naruto being banished. But in a way it was good for the fact that it seemed to motivate Ino much more. Ino had removed the bandages that she used to wear around her waist which allowed her stomach to be seen and replaced the fabric arm wear on her elbows with fishnet and also wears fishnet over her knees. Ino is now also equipped with a Chūnin's tantō, which she wears above her medical pouch much like Sakura.

Shikamaru hadn't honestly changed much, other than the fact he actually trained harder, maybe because he wanted to help Naruto in the future as he knew of the dangers the blonde faced or maybe it was because he realised just how dangerous missions were if not fully prepared, something he learnt on his last mission with Naruto. Shikamaru has grown noticeably taller. He has also gone under a costume change, sporting a different undershirt and pants, and changing his earrings from rings to studs, though the placement of his headband is the same place as it always was. Shikamaru has been equipped with a Chūnin's Tantō; he was also wearing a flak jacket ever since he first became a Chūnin.

Chouji hadn't changed much either other than deciding to take his training more seriously since in the retrieval mission he was beaten within an inch of his life thanks to his families pills, ever since then he had never had to use them. Chouji has brown hair, swirl marks on his cheeks, and like the rest of his clan, he has a much rounder physique than most other people. He sports a red top with armour on his torso, arms, and upper legs, similar to his father. On the front of his chest armour is the obligatory kanji for "eat". His brown hair has grown much longer, changes his earrings from rings to studs, and he now looks less overweight and more muscular, just like what he himself had always claimed: big-boned.

Kiba, also has changed a lot ever since Naruto was banished he had become more of a controlled person, instead of being a loud mouth he was more calm with his nerves and able to fight better now that he didn't get angry fast. He has messy brown hair, sharp black eyes with vertical slit-like pupils, pronounced canine teeth, and nails that he can change into claws. He also has the distinct red fang markings of the Inuzuka clan on his cheeks. His outfit changed to a form fitting black jacket and pants with a black forehead protector and black sandals.

Shino was the same, just like all Aburame he didn't really say much to anyone, and to be honest he preferred it that way as it was much more relaxing. Shino himself didn't like the way Naruto was banished since he had kind of admired the boy years ago as he always felt like he was like himself in the regards of being an outcast. Shino has dark bushy brown hair, pale skin; his appearance became even more mysterious, with his jacket hanging down to his knees and the addition of a hood that obstructs his face even more and a satchel on his back.

Hinata had changed the most though, she never stuttered anymore, she was probably the most confident person there and one of the strongest kunoichi, ever since the banishment she had thrown herself in to training non-stop, even to such levels that her father actually worried for her, which was a first. She had let her hair grow to waist-length, and wears a white-lavender jacket with navy pants with black sandals. Although she still wears her forehead protector around her neck, the cloth has changed to black in colour.

TenTen hadn't changed much at all, since she didn't really know Naruto it didn't affect her all that much, well not to the extent it did in the others anyway. Her outfit had changed from a pink blouse to a white one and red pants instead of green. She now wears black fingerless gloves; everything is still a reference to the Chinese culture. She holds a giant tool summoning scroll on her back that she uses when fighting.

Lee had seemed depressed as he looked up to Naruto as he saw him as a brother of sorts seeing as Naruto, like himself was the dead-lasts of there year, hearing him being banished he couldn't help but feel it was most un-youthful which made him train twice as hard, to the displeasure of his teammates. Lee well he wore the same except for a vest top like many other shinobi, plus the fact he was much taller now.

Neji had started mentioning fate a bit more again as he saw that with Naruto banished that fate had intervened stopping Naruto from achieving his goal to become Hokage, never mind the fact Sasuke was welcomed back like fuck all happened. Neji abandoned the bandages. Instead of the regular tan jacket and shorts, he now wears traditional white and black Hyuuga robes. This may have not only been to make his attacks easier, but to show that he is now closer to his clan. Neji is usually seen with a large tan and black drawstring bag, which he carries over his shoulder.

And there was Sasuke…he had changed slightly, oh he was still arrogant about the Uchiha clan and their power, and with his newly acquired Mangekyō Sharingan it only got worse. But he was more talkative, he didn't isolate himself anymore and he was more outgoing albeit a little reluctant seeing as not many people wanted to be near him. He was shocked that when he came back Naruto had banished because of him and somehow deep down he knew that decision would bite his and the villagers ass in the end. He had changed his appearance much over the years as he now stood at 6ft. his hair was slightly longer ganging over his eyes slightly while wearing a white long-sleeved shirt which was open at the torso, with a smaller version of the Uchiha crest on his collar. He wore black pants with a blue cloth hanging from halfway up his stomach to his knees. He also wore a purple rope around his waist, tied in a bow.

Looking up Tsunade held a grave look. "I've called you all here for a very special mission that needs each and every one of you."

Kakashi seemed to raise an eyebrow at that. "A mission that needs us all, what could be so important?" He asked with everyone else silently agreeing.

Tsunade folded her hands in front of her face and sighed. "Akatsuki." That one single word was enough to stop any comments that had been on their tongues as they all stiffened up and drew in gasps, thinking and hoping that Naruto was involved somehow.

They had all been told about Naruto's connection with the group and had trained As hard as they could to help fight alongside him, whether he was banished or not, he was still a comrade.

Sakura who had her hands gripping the side of her skirt looked at Tsunade with a grave look. "What of Akatsuki?" She asked wanting to know what they would be facing.

"Akatsuki had been sighted close to Takigakure, at first I didn't see what they were after from there, until I realised they currently have a kunoichi there that goes by the name of Fū, the Jinchuriki of the Nanabi no Kabutomushi." She said causing everyone's eyes to widen.

"Just like Naruto?" Neji asked curiously.

"Yes, exactly like him, only we have no information on her, the only thing we can do for now is help Taki to protect Fū and stop Akatsuki from abducting her at all cost." She ordered.

"Do we know what member or Akatsuki was sighted?" Asuma asked with a cigarette in his mouth.

Tsunade sighed and shook her head. "Unfortunately we don't have a clue, the only thing that can honestly be done is be prepared for anything that may come at you."

"When do we leave?" Sasuke asked wanting a good fight.

"As soon as possible, I want you all to go home and pack whatever you will need for this mission…" Everyone gave a nod and was about to leave until Tsunade spoke up. "…Kakashi stay a minute." Kakashi gave a raised brow and gave her a nod staying behind.

Kakashi looked up at Tsunade once everyone was gone and spoke. "You wanted me alone Tsunade-Sama?"

Tsunade gave a nod and looked at the wall as it slowly shimmered before revealing Jiraiya with his arms crossed. "Did he get it?" She asked with hopefulness in her voice.

Jiraiya looked at Tsunade with a small smile on his face. "Yes, I don't know if he read it yet, all we have to do is wait and hope."

Tsunade smiled slightly. "I just hope he can forgive me." She said so low it may have been mistaken as a whisper.

Jiraiya chuckled. "Believe me, I doubt he would blame you whatsoever." He said making her feel a bit better.

Kakashi looked back between the two before sighing and asking. "Err...what are you two talking about?" Both Sannin looked back at him and the decency to look ashamed that they had forgotten about him.

"Naruto." Tsunade said simply.

Kakashi looked immensely confused. "I don't understand. What about him?"

Tsunade just chuckled lightly. "I have requested that Naruto comes back in a letter that I had Jiraiya give to him, I can't explain much but on this mission there may be a chance you meet him, if so find out his answer and go from there." She ordered Kakashi who stood gobsmacked that his old student would, or may, be coming back.

Looking at Jiraiya he asked. "Have you been keeping in contact all these years with him?"

Jiraiya smiled and stepped away from the wall to stand by Tsunade. "Yep, with him still having the Toad contract I was able to meet up with him multiple times."

Kakashi gave a short nod and turned to Tsunade. "What makes you so sure we may meet with Naruto?" He asked with a raised brow.

"Akatsuki…" Jiraiya stated. "…Naruto is hunting the Akatsuki down one by one, if he knows one has been sighted he will be there, to kill them and save his fellow Jinchuriki."

Kakashi's eyes widen at what Naruto was doing. "He's hunting them? But that's suicide…just how strong is Naruto?" He asked and was slightly afraid of the answer when Jiraiya flinched as if remembering a past memory.

"He has been able to defeat me the last couple of time we had a real fight to test his abilities." He explained getting Kakashi's lone eye to widen in shock.

"I see…I take it this is just between us three for now?" He asked knowing he wouldn't be able to tell everyone else.

Tsunade gave a sad nod knowing how everyone wanted to see him and be able to help him with his troubles. "Unfortunately that is correct, you won't have to treat Naruto as an enemy, he has no animosity towards us, which honestly surprises me, but I guess he wouldn't be the hero if he did." She said with a small chuckle at the end getting smiles from the other two.

Kakashi gave a nod and made his way for the door. "Understood, I guess I'll go get prepared…and I hope he comes back as well Tsunade-Sama." He said eye smiling as he left the room.

After Kakashi had gone Tsunade relaxed into the back of her chair and looked at Jiraiya with a solemn look. "Will he ever forgive us for what we have done?"

Jiraiya smiled sadly understanding her pain. "You shouldn't worry, I doubt Naruto would ever blame you for what you was forced to do, he isn't the knucklehead anymore, he is a very smart young man, and if anything, it's the council who should be afraid." He said with an evil grin while Tsunade smiled slightly while hoping he was.

"Well, we better just wait to see if he comes back." She said with anxiousness in her voice. 'And then I can tell you how I really feel while I can.' She thought to herself.

Later That Day

Takigakure

A Kunoichi stood in an open field with a nervous look on her face as she faced her opponent, this woman was Fu, the Jinchuriki of the Nanabi no Kabutomushi.

Fū wore a clip with her green hair and had pink eyes. Her ninja outfit consisted of a high white shirt, white armlets, and a fishnet waistband, her Takigakure forehead protector being worn on her arm like Shikamaru. Fū also carried a red cylindrical object on her back.

Her opponents however was from the world renowned organization known as Akatsuki, he was however called Kisame Hoshigaki, Kisame was a very tall and strong shinobi, with a distinctive shark-like appearance, complete with pale blue skin, small white eyes, gill-like facial structures, and sharp triangular teeth. Kisame also wears a dark purple nail colour, like Itachi. Underneath his Akatsuki cloak, Kisame wears an outfit similar to the one that his colleague, Zabuza Momochi, wore. On his left ring finger is his Akatsuki ring, which bears the kanji for South (南, nan).

"Come on girly, just come peacefully, otherwise my Samehada will be getting some lovely chakra to eat from you!" Kisame said with a feral smirk showing his sharp teeth.

Fū looked at her opponent and frowned slightly, she knew that this fish-man would beat her, she was strong but she wasn't that strong to beat someone of this calibre. 'But he wants Nanabi, I can't let him take her…never mind the fact that I will be killed, I have to do all I can.'

"You think I'll give up just like that? You really are as dumb as you look." She said with a smirk as Kisame just grinned wider as he gripped Samehada.

"Well then…I'll just have to shave your legs off first." Shooting forward he brought Samehada around and swung at Fū who brought a kunai up with chakra flowing through it to defend herself. Samehada was brought down on the kunai causing an explosion to erupt as a crater was formed.

Fū pushed Kisame off of her and flipped backwards to get some distance between them so she could eye the situation better, looking ahead she saw Kisame stood in the newly created crater with his Samehada hung on his shoulder as he stared at her with his fish like eyes.

Fū held her arms out as bugs started to come from under her armbands before flying around her making Kisame's eyebrow raise. "With having the Nanabi no Kabutomushi sealed within me, it gives me the abilities to control bugs, much like the Aburame of Konoha do."

Thrusting her arms out, what seemed like thousands of bugs flew at Kisame at astounding speed, flipping through hand seals he called out. "Suiton: Suikōdan no Jutsu!" (Water Release: Water Shark Missile Technique) Opening his mouth a large amount of water shot out of it before taking the ghostly form of a shark that cut through the bugs heading for Fū.

Fū seeing the danger heading for her put her hands in a seal and called out. "Mushi Kame no Jutsu!" (Insect Jar Technique) All of her bugs suddenly flew towards her and wrapped around her making a dome like shield protecting her as the water shark struck the shield causing a small tremor in the earth.

With The Konoha Team

At The Border Between Hi no Kuni and Takigakure

"We are close." Shino said causing everyone to look at him as they all jumped through the trees.

"How do you know?" TenTen asked with a raised brow.

"I can sense bugs being used along with someone that holds a large amount of chakra." He explained.

"The bugs must be a side-effect of having the Nanabi no Kabutomushi sealed within her, making her like an Aburame." Asuma deduced getting nods from his fellow Jonin.

Kiba started sniffing around before scrunching his nose in disgust. 2I can smell what reminds me of…fish…and a lot of blood, as if this person had killed all his life."

Kakashi placed his hand under his chin thinking before his lone eye widened. "Out of Akatsuki the only one who sounds like that is Kisame Hoshigaki, if that is the case we need to hurry up."

"What's so dangerous about him?" Ino asked with a confused face.

"Kisame Hoshigaki was a former member of the Kiri no Shinobigatana Nananin Shū, his chakra reserves could rival a Biju making him a powerhouse and his sword Samehada is a truly monstrous thing, if there is anyone in Akatsuki who is a real danger, it is him." Kakashi explained making everyone's eyes widen.

Sasuke's eyes also widen when he realised something. "Itachi and he were after Naruto." He said making them look at him in shock. "All those years ago when I was utterly defeated by Itachi in a hotel, I saw Kisame ready to take Naruto, and if it hadn't been for Jiraiya, they may have actually captured him."

"So what does that mean? Naruto is Kisame's target?" Sakura asked with a worried look.

Kurenai sighed sadly knowing it may be true. "It may be possible, but with Itachi dead, he wouldn't have a partner anymore, his orders may have changed."

"We should hurry then, we have no idea what we'll be getting into." Gai said in a moment of seriousness as he got nods from all around before the shot off.

With Naruto

Naruto was flying through the trees at full speed, he had felt demonic chakra not long ago and lucky for him he wasn't that far from the location, what made him panic more was when he felt a familiar and an extremely high level of chakra.

He knew without a doubt that it was Akatsuki attacking Takigakure for their Jinchuriki, lucky for him he had been there before and was familiar with the village leader Shibuki, over the years he had found out that the village had saw him as a hero much like other villages he had saved has.

He couldn't help but feel proud of himself at the fact that he was being seen as a hero in different countries and yet he couldn't even get that sort of respect in his own village. Shaking his head from his thoughts he narrowed his eyes ahead of him focusing on his goal to save his fellow Jinchuriki.

"Akatsuki's going to be one more member down when I'm through with them." He said with venom lacing his tone.

With Fū and Kisame

Fū's bugs dispersed from around her as she held out her hand firing them at Kisame who just kept batting them away with his large sword getting annoyed as more and more bugs came at him.

"Hijutsu: Mushidama!" (Secret Technique: Insect Sphere) She called out as all of the bugs around Kisame covered his entire body sucking chakra out of him, what she didn't realise however was that Kisame held a lot of chakra.

All of a sudden water started leaking out of the bugs before it exploded in water showing that it was a "Mizu Bunshin no Jutsu!" (Water Clone Technique) She said shocked that she hadn't noticed when he made a clone. 'Must have been when I was shielded by my bugs, the crafty bastard.'

She was shaken from her thoughts as she was hit in her with a such strength that she was sent flying hitting the ground, causing her to get cut up along the way. Placing her hand on the ground she slowed herself down and twisted so that she could flip up to stand on her feet glaring at Kisame who had a smirk on his face, she noticed how the wrapping on Samehada had come of at the top revealing blue scales.

Looking down at her side she noticed that her clothes had been torn and she had a large gash that had ripped her skin, suddenly red chakra started bubbling around the area healing her skin almost instantly making her sigh in relief.

Kisame stabbed the ground placing Samehada there as he flipped through hand seals. "Suiton: Suiryūdan no Jutsu" (Water Release: Water Dragon Bullet Technique) A large water dragon appeared in front of Kisame and shot at Fū who was unprepared for the jutsu, luckily for her, Kami was on her side as a voice called out.

"Doton: Doryūheki!" (Earth Release: Earth Style Wall)

A large wall of solid earth rose up in front of Fū shielding her from the might of the water dragon that slammed into it causing water to splash over the area, some even getting Fū. as the wall lowered Fū saw something she would never expect to ever see, 15 Konoha shinobi lined up in front of her.

Snapping out of her shock she said the first thing that came into her head. "Who are you people?"

Kakashi looked back and eye-smiled. "The Hokage was warned about sighting of Akatsuki in the area, and we are here to help you out." He said as if it was nothing.

"Why would you help me?" She asked bitterly wondering what their motive was.

"Let's just say we owe it to an old friend." Asuma said with a sad smile.

"Who?" She asked still suspicious of them.

"Naruto Uzumaki." Kurenai replied making the Jinchuriki's eyes to widen.

"The hero of Takigakure?" She asked in complete shock making the others look at her in surprise at what she called him, they didn't know that's how the village saw them, making them feel even more depressed of their village's actions towards him.

"Yes…him. He was also a Jinchuriki like you." Neji said almost solemnly making the young girl wonder what had happened to her villages' hero.

Kisame looked at the group and realised he was in actual trouble, while he may be strong and confident, he wasn't stupid, sure he may take a few of them out, but at what cost? "Hmm…this could be trouble, I best be going now." He said as was about to use a Shunshin to get away.

"Mokuton: Jubaku Eisō!" (Wood Release: Curse-Binding Nest) Planks of wood shot out of the ground and curled around Kisame's arms and legs binding him where he stood, stopping him from getting away.

"You're not going anywhere…fish face." Spoke a very familiar voice to the Konoha shinobi.

Everyone looked over to the side to see Naruto knelt down on the ground with his palm flat on the surface and staring at Kisame with narrowed eyes.

"Naruto?" Kakashi asked unsure if what he saw was real while everyone's eyes widen seeing how much he had changed. Fū also looked in shock at finally able to see the hero of her village, as well as a fellow Jinchuriki.

Naruto looked at Kakashi with a small smile and stood up at full height which funnily enough he was taller than most there compared to when he was a midget. "It's good to see you Kakashi-Sensei, it's been too long." He said with a chuckle.

"Ahh, the Kyuubi kid is here, last time I saw you, you was a scrawny little bastard." Kisame said with a feral grin, acting like he isn't even restrained, looking down at the wood his grin got bigger. "So you can use the Mokuton huh?" He said making them look at Naruto in shock.

Naruto simply just shrugged his shoulders. "It isn't that hard to use really, with having the Kyuubi's presence within me, it makes my chakra all the more potent and giving me the ability to re-create sub-elemental chakra, almost like a bloodline." He said as he noticed the wood around Kisame start to crack.

"Amazing." Asuma muttered, he had always had a liking for jutsu, just like his father.

"Being able to do that could increase someone's potential immensely." Kakashi also muttered in awe.

While everyone was in awe of being able to do such a thing, Sasuke was gritting his teeth in anger at the 'dobe' being able to do such a thing when he can't. 'How the hell could he get so strong…?'

Naruto held out his right hand causing a spark of fire to ignite on the palm of it before he shouted. "Katon: Shakkahō!" (Fire Release: Shot of Red Fire) A large red ball of fire blew from his hand hitting Kisame causing a large explosion.

Once the smoke cleared it shown Kisame with a lightly scorched cloak and his Samehada shielding him form the attack. "Hehe, not bad ya little brat, but not good enough." He said with a smirk.

Before Kisame could do anything he was interrupted as someone spoke in his head. 'Kisame retreat for now, you at too much of a disadvantage, we will retrieve the two Jinchuriki another time!'

Kisame sighed and attached Samehada on his back confusing the group entirely. "Well, looks like I've gotta go, I'll see you, Kyuubi boy, some other time." He said with an evil cackle as he suddenly turned to water splashing the ground.

Naruto seeing Kisame gone slammed his fist into the ground causing a small crater. "Damn it!"

Kakashi seeing everyone was alright stepped closer to Naruto. "Naruto." He said getting the blondes attention who stood up and looked at him. "Tsunade-Sama wanted to know if you were returning or not." He said confusing the Konoha shinobi.

"Kakashi-Sensei? What do you mean? Naruto is banished isn't he?" Sakura asked confused causing Naruto look at her with an even look that put her on edge remembering her last confrontation with the young man while Naruto remembered that and more.

Flashback

Naruto had just returned from the council meeting informing him of his banishment, nothing felt more like a kick in the crotch than being told everything you worked and lived for was being taken from you like that. Turning around a corner on his way home to pack he came across Sakura who was with one of his first ever crushes… Ino Yamanaka. Naruto deciding to be nice ran over to them hoping to say his good byes.

"Hey, Sakura-Chan!" Naruto chirped at the pink haired girl who looked annoyed and…angry?

She responded, "What do you want, Naruto?"

Naruto realising why she must be angry looked down slightly knowing Sakura was thinking about his broken promise. "Sakura-Chan…I'm sorry that I couldn't bring Sasuke back."

Her response was something that he may have expected however as she turned on him with the mother of all glares. "Sorry? Sorry that you couldn't keep your promise? No Naruto, I'm sorry for believing that a dead-last like you would bring back Sasuke-kun."

Naruto looked up shocked that the girl he thought he had a crush on would say something like that. "Sakura-Chan, I really tried but…."

"Tried? Yeah right, you didn't try. Why would you try to save Sasuke? You knew I liked him and I bet you thought that if he was out of the picture then I would say yes to a date."

Deciding enough was enough and that he wasn't going to take care of anymore bullshit from the bitch glared back with icy blue eyes that unnerved them. "I didn't try? I had a hole in my fucking chest, actually make that two from your precious Sasuke-Kun all because I was holding back afraid I might kill him, and what do I get in return? Glares from every fucker I have met, and to make matters worse I just came from a meeting telling me I'm banished, never to step back in this village again. It's you, you pink haired bitch who did fuck all except cry, maybe next time you will lift a finger, fuck you and fuck this village!" Naruto said with so much anger that Sakura kept taking steps back while all the villagers listening in were wondering if they had pushed him too far. As Naruto walked off they could have sworn they heard. "I should have killed him instead."

Ino was wide-eyed through it all not believing this was Naruto that was talking, despite what people thought she never hated him, hell if anything she admired him, years ago before he put up his smiling mask she had a crush on him for a long time. It was when he acted like an idiot that she went to Sasuke as he reminded her of Naruto. Seeing him like that had more her well…horny slightly as old feelings came back, but then it hit her…banishment! For failing a mission? How retarded was that, hell he wasn't even the team leader.

Ino looked over at her friend's face and noticed she had her eyes wide in shock at what she heard. "Well, you deserved that, well I'm going to say bye to Naruto-Kun…and maybe something else." She said with a smirk and blush as she ran off.

It was only later did Sakura realise what she had lost from her actions and she would never get to apologize, and in her eyes she didn't deserve to have the chance for that, she knew she was a bitch and she deserved what Naruto said. It was what Ino said that truly confused her though.

End of Flashback

Naruto smiled at that, when Ino had turned up at his door she had confessed everything, when he asked why she was telling him now she responded. "Because I may never get another chance to tell you the truth again and I don't want that in that back of my mind all my life wondering, 'what if', you know?"

Naruto's answer was to kiss her on the lips making her wide-eyed before melting in to it, loving every second of it as it brought pure bliss to her, bliss she knew she would never forget.

What Naruto and Ino did that night no-one knew but it left the two relieved and happy at finally getting everything off their chest for once.

The next morning Naruto had left everything behind hoping for a better future.

Naruto looked back to Kakashi and smiled slightly. "Tell Tsunade…one week, I still have some stuff to that needs doing before I plan on doing anything…" He paused as he looked at Fū who was looking at him in amazement. "…I should get Fū back to Takigakure and to her brother Shibuki." He said making her go wide-eyed at the fact he knew who she really was.

Kakashi eye-smiled and gave a nod in acceptance and turned around to everyone else. "Well, it seems like everything is alright here, we should head back now, Tsunade-Sama would want to hear everything as soon as possible."

Everyone gave a nod and gave Naruto one last look before jumping away leaving Naruto to sigh in relief. "Thank god, that was getting awkward with everyone staring at me." He muttered to himself.

Fū looked up at Naruto as she walked up to him barely reaching his shoulders. "So you're the one who saved my brother along with our entire village?" She asked making sure this was the right guy.

Naruto chuckled and gave a nod. "Yup, although I did have my teammates with me but I did help Shibuki defeat his former Sensei Suien." He replied as they started walking back to the village.

"Thank you for saving my brother Naruto-San, I was only a Genin at the time, bit I had heard about everything from him." She said bowing and smiling brightly.

Naruto just waved her off with a small smile. "It's in my nature to help those who deserve it."

Fū looked up at him with a smile along with a look of awe before shaking her head and asking. "How come you weren't with the Konoha shinobi, I thought you were one of them?"

Naruto sighed sadly and looked up at the sky as it was getting dark. "I was banished from Konoha." He said making her gasp in shock.

"Banished? Why?" She asked in shock.

"When I was 13 I had a mission to bring back my teammate who had deserted us and was going to Orochimaru for power to kill Itachi Uchiha. I failed, and lost due to be struck in the chest with a Raiton jutsu, when I got back the council had decided I was too dangerous to be there because of the Kyuubi, and so I was banished…but…if I'm truthful with myself, I prefer being banished, than being stuck in a village being treated like I'm the Kyuubi itself or like ticking time bomb."

Fū looked at Naruto in amazement at how much she knew he must've endured with having the Kyuubi sealed inside of him and being betrayed by the village he trusted. She herself knew very well of how people can treat you just because you hold a demon in your gut, but even she could tell she had it easy as the Kyuubi had killed thousands of innocent people in his home village.

Naruto looked at Fū with a gentle smile. "We should get to the village as soon as possible, your brother is probably worried sick for you." He said getting a nod from her as they started running.

Takigakure

Five Days Later

Naruto when he returned with Fū had been thanked profusely for saving her by Shibuki who had practically hugged him to the point he almost died from being unable to breathe. He had simply told him it was no problem and it was his duty.

Shibuki had then offered for him to stay for a while so he can rest up and get his things sorted out before he had to go back to Konoha and deal with the council.

Over that time Naruto and Fū had spent time together, getting to know each other, Naruto told her about his journey and all the stuff he had experienced and seen, she had listened to each and every bit of his tales.

She had soon found herself falling for the tall shinobi, much to Shibuki's amusement who could easily tell by the way she always seemed to be with him doing countless activities.

And now was the day when he was going to leave for god knows how long..

Naruto stood at the gateway of the village that leads to the outside of the large tree, ready to go back to his old village that betrayed him, looking behind him he saw Fū and Shibuki seeing him off.

"Have a safe journey Naruto-San." Shibuki said with a small bow.

"Thanks Shibuki-San, I doubt anything will happen though, Konoha's not far from here." He said with a small smile, he then noticed Fū's downtrodden mode and knew it was because he was leaving, he had known she started getting a crush on him but didn't want to pressure her into anything so he had left it to see how things progressed.

Walking up to her he reached into his pouch and pulled out a three=pronged kunai and held it out to her. "If you ever need my help or in trouble, or if you just want to talk even, throw this at something and I'll be there within a moment's notice…I promise."

Fū looked at the kunai in wonder never seeing something like and quickly took it in case he declined it and took it back, bowing to Naruto slightly she said. "Thank you, Naruto-Kun."

Naruto chuckled and brought his hand under chin lifting her head up, ;leaning down a bit he brought his lips to hers in a soft sensual kiss that almost made her faint while Shibuki tried…not to pay attention to what was happening to his sister.

Pulling back Naruto grinned at Fū's dazed look. "That's something to remember me by, hopefully when I see you again, it can last longer." He said with a chuckle as he waved to them both before leaving.

Once Naruto was out of sight Shibuki looked at his sister who held the kunai tightly to her chest and chuckled. "Looks like someone's in love." He said in a song like voice making the girl blush brightly.

"SHIBUKI!" She screamed as she chased after her brother who was laughing all the way.

With Naruto

A Day Later

Naruto was jumping through the trees at a calm pace knowing there was no rush, all of a sudden he stopped moving as he landed on a tree branch and jumped down to the ground floor.

Suddenly a sharp blade was at his throat, extremely close to coming to killing him when a soft female chuckle came from behind him. "Either you're getting slow, or you wanted to be in this position." The voice said in an almost suggestive voice.

The Naruto that had the blade to his throat suddenly 'poofed' causing the figure to turn around where they saw Naruto leaning against a tree with a smirk on his face. "Well, we have tried every other position, may as well create a new one, Kagura Enkai." He said with a wink.

Naruto gazed at the person in front of him and couldn't help but admire the woman in front of him. Her emerald eyes and crimson hair seemed to sway in mischief, copying her personality exactly. She wore a black battle kimono that was slightly altered. It was altered in a way that it was very revealing. Yet to underestimate her would be a great disadvantage. She was carrying in her hand a wicked looking scythe that had a red coloured blade on it. It was a family heirloom of hers that has been passed from warrior to warrior. It was because of this weapon that she was called the Shoujouhi Kijo.

Kagura chuckled lightly and placed her scythe on her back and sauntered over to Naruto and grabbed his face pulling him into a hungru, yet loving kiss that they both moaned into as if they hadn't kissed in a long time.

Naruto twisted her around so she was up against the tree and started to kiss her neck bringing tingles through her body at feeling such a sensation as she brought her right leg up almost wrapping around his waist as if inviting him in.

Naruto broke the kisses and looked back at Kagura's half-lidded emerald eyes that seemed to shine with love…love for him, something he would have never anticipated in all of his life. "Sorry, but we can't do that here." He said in what sounded like an apologetic voice getting a disappointed moan from the woman

"Are you sure?" She asked hoping he would. "I mean, no-one is here, we could fuck all night and not be disturbed."

Naruto chuckled at her and gave her another kiss. "Sorry, but we have to be at Konoha by tomorrow, I promised Tsunade I would help her, and you know me."

Kagura chuckled as she stroked his whiskered cheeks softly that made him growl. "You and your promises…" She said softly. "…You gonna seduce her too?" She said with a smirk and a wink.

Naruto chuckled and shook his head. "I don't seduce people, they flock to me, and besides I'm only interested in a few women I've met over time, it's up to Tsunade if she want it or not." He said pulling her closer so he could whisper in her hear while his hot breath made her shiver. ""You'll always be my number one, no matter what." He said while giving her ass a little squeeze making her moan in pleasure.

"Tease." She whispered into his shoulder before pulling back with a small smile on her face.

Naruto chuckled and patted down his rustled clothes and look back at Kagura. "So, what have you found out?"

Kagura taking control of her hormones said. "Orochimaru's been gathering more and more missing-nin to his forces; luckily, they seem more like cannon-fodder. It shouldn't be long now until the Hebi-teme finally strikes." She said in a seriousness tone.

Naruto gave a nod and sighed. "Luckily we'll be there to stop him from following through with his conquest against Konoha."

Kagura also sighed hating Orochimaru for all the trouble he has caused people. "Do you think Sasuke will join back with him? There's got to be some reason he left the teme alive before he went after Itachi" She asked carefully knowing his history with the certain Uchiha.

Naruto shrugged as if he didn't care. "Honestly I don't know, while I think it's strange he left him alive, either he couldn't defeat him or he needed him for something. But if he does join with Orochimaru, this time I won't let him survive." He said clenching his fist.

Kagura grabbed Naruto's hand intertwining their fingers together calming him down somewhat. "You're not alone this time Naru-Koi, and with us two, no-one can stop us." She said with a smirk.

Naruto tightened his grip on Kagura's hand for a second as if thanking her before he spoke. "Well, we should head to Konoha to help Tsunade out." Kagura gave a nod as they started leaping through the trees.

'You'll never have to fight alone anymore Naru-Koi, I'll make damn sure of that!' Thought Kagura with a smirk on her face that put Naruto on edge.

'That smirk is never a good sign…then again…she does look sexy like that.'

Hi no Kuni

Konoha: North Gates

The Next Day

Naruto looked at the gates with narrowed eyes; it had been 6 years since he was last here, since he was banished, and he still couldn't help but feel a little anger at those who miss-treated him all those years, Kagura who was stood by him looked at the village gates with also narrowed eyes for the treatment they had given her love.

Now though Tsunade had requested his help, even going so far as to revoke his banishment, what was more surprising was the council whole heartedly agreeing. He knew why he was being called in, Akatsuki were still out there and strong, extremely strong. What was worse was that Orochimaru was also on the move and looking to kill and destroy Konoha.

Starting on his walk towards the desk he was getting excited at seeing Tsunade again, Shikamaru too as he was one of his best friends, Kiba was also a best friend with a certain rivalry. He had also become good friends with Neji after the Chūnin exam as the Hyuuga had become more social with people now that he didn't believe in fate.

Then there was Ino, he had no idea what to do with her, there were other certain women in the village he had his eye on, but with being gone for all these years he had no idea if they had found someone or what.

Naruto came up to the gate and he noticed two guards at the gate booth relaxing. These two were Kotetsu and Izumo, the pranking Chūnin's and Naruto's friends, two of the people who saw him for him and not the fox.

When the guards noticed him they almost passed out at seeing someone back from the dead.

"Y-Yondaime-S-Sama!" Izumo spluttered

Naruto groaned at that. "Geez, I know I look like my dad but I'm sorry to upset you it's me Naruto." He said flashing them a grin. This time they did pass out from shock at having Naruto back in the village. "Hmm didn't expect that…oh well." With that he steeped over them and carried on his merry way to the Hokage Tower.

Kagura sweat dropped as Naruto just stepped over the guards but shrugged her shoulders and followed after Naruto as she really didn't want to get lost in a village, the last time she got lost in a village she ended up destroying a portion of it out of frustration with her scythe, until she was kicked out of the village.

Naruto as he was walking noticed everyone looking at him, woman were blushing and pointing and men were glaring at him as they saw their wives and girlfriends look at him in lust.

"Yondaime-Sama has returned!"

"He's back for redemption against us!"

"Our Hero is back!"

"Wow, he's so handsome!"

"I wonder if he'll have my children!"

Naruto groaned at the last comment.

'It's like everywhere else I go!'

Hokage Tower

Tsunade Senju was currently sat behind her desk going through reports on sighting of Akatsuki in fire country lately, and she had a pretty good idea why they were here. Over the years she hadn't changed one bit, she was still the short tempered woman that would fall asleep and get drunk, however it was less and less as the years went on.

Throughout the years she would think about Naruto and what he was doing, Jiraiya had given her bits and pieces of information about her Naruto but it always made her want to see him more. Unknown to anyone other than Shizune she had gained a liking for the blonde, a liking that went beyond and friendship, something she was afraid of admitting as he was too young for her, but that didn't stop the dreams coming.

She was woken from her thoughts as she heard a knock at the door, now though she was confused, there were no teams, out, no missions ready so the only possibility must be…

"Come on." She said with a little hope.

Stepping thought the door what was some people may call a god among men, Tsunade had to hold back a drool and control her emotions. It was then she recognized the man, blowing all of her dreams and fantasies out of the water. "Naruto?" She asked carefully.

Naruto chuckled and stepped forward. "Yep it's me; I got your message a week ago." He said with a soft smile as Tsunade's eyes widened to massive saucers.

Tsunade had practically dove over the desk as she hugged the blonde to her and what she found was, a strong muscled male, taller than her and she loved every minute of it.

Naruto placed his arms around the woman hugging her just as tight enjoying the feeling of being with Tsunade again, he was interrupted when he heard sniffing, looking down he noticed Tsunade had a couple tears down her eyes.

Wiping them away with his thumb as he held her cheek he asked. "What's wrong?"

"I'm sorry…so sorry for banishing you." She said softly as she held on to him tighter.

Naruto grinned as he stepped back while wiping the tears away. "It wasn't your fault, and besides I think it was for the best." He said making her feel a little better as she pulled back…then she noticed the red headed woman, the room just got chilly and Naruto couldn't but gulp.

"Who are you?" Tsunade asked with narrowed eyes.

Kagura smirked and walked up behind Naruto hugging him. "I'm one of Naruto's lovers and future wife." She said making Tsunade's eyes widen as she realised what she said.

"One of Naruto's lovers?" She asked in shook.

Naruto chuckled and waved a hand trying to diffuse the situation. "Well, I need to restart my clan, and as you know I'm able to have multiple wives to rebuild it. But we'll talk about that later anyway." He said while Kagura winked at her making her blush slightly at the implications of that talk may be.

Tsunade then went around her desk as Naruto and Kagura pulled chairs up to the desk and sat down only for Naruto to start off. "I discovered my bloodline."

Tsunade gasped in shock at hearing that, she had never expected him to achieve unlocking it what with the Kyuubi being inside of him. "How?"

Naruto chuckled at her expressions while Kagura grinned. "I had a seal placed on me, I don't know how it was put on or when but it was halting my improvements, it slowed down my reaction time and how fast I learn stuff, technically it was stumping my growth, however Kyuubi informed me of it once I left the village. I asked him if he could get rid of it which he did by pouring his demonic chakra in to it completely vaporizing it. With that gone it sent me all of the knowledge, power, the lot that I should have received was transferred to me, and it was some time later I was attacked where I unlocked my bloodline, I was shocked to find out what it was though."

Tsunade sat there gobsmacked, she couldn't believe someone had intended to stump his growth so much and block off his bloodline, for reasons she didn't want to know.

Tsunade sighed and shook her head. "Only you could go through all that."

Naruto smirked. "I tend to go through a lot." He realised his poor choice of words when she lowered her head and started crying slightly, walking over he pulled he in to a hug. "Stop crying, I never blamed you, I knew you didn't want anything to do with it." Tsunade just sighed before wrapping her arms around the blonde once more, as she was going to let go a voice broke through.

"If I didn't know any better I'd say you two were lovers." Said a voice that came from the window, the two looked over and saw a perversely grinning Jiraiya. As Tsunade was about to retort Naruto spoke up. "Jealous?" he joked with a grin making Jiraiya gape not expecting that response, while Tsunade blushed scarlet.

Kagura chuckled at Jiraiya's expression, if he reacted like to what Naruto said…wait until later. "Well, if it isn't the perverted old man." He said with a dangerous smirk that scared the man.

"Ahh, Kagura-Chan, so nice to see you again." He said a little nervously as he watched Kagura sliding her fingers up and down her scythe as if preparing for something.

Tsunade broke the embrace before going back to her desk and sitting down. "Anyway, you know why I requested you be brought here?" Tsunade asked Naruto who gave her a nod.

"Yep, Akatsuki and Oto I think the letter said. I hear the two are becoming powerful, there are also rumours that they may try and recruit more missing nin or make an alliance with other countries."

The two Sannin gave their own nods before Jiraiya spoke. "That's why you're here, the council agreed with us that right now, we need your help should things get out of control, but first we need to test you, and with Kagura here as well, you two are like an army yourselves." He said while Kagura grinned proudly.

Naruto gave a nod. "Ok, but don't expect me to be the old me against the council, they will learn just who they banished all those years ago." He said emphasizing the 'who' meaning he was going to tell them everything.

Tsunade chuckled and asked, "Before that, we need to evaluate your skills before you are hired as a mercenary like you wanted, is there anyone you would like to challenge to prove you strength?"

Naruto leant back in his seat and thought about everyone he knew that he wanted to show up, however only one stood out, one of his clan, one who had ruined his life and took everything. Looking at Tsunade with a devious grin that well…aroused her slightly leading her thoughts a stray he asked. "What's Sasuke Uchiha doing lately; I want to see what my cousin is capable of nowadays?" He asked as the three of them chuckled at his plan.

To Be Continued

Kagura

Tsunade

Kurenai

Ino

Karui

Samui

Yugito

Mei

Konan
