Sesshomaru looked at the location he was in and closed his eyes. Too much has happened in his life to care about a new territory. And besides...
...it smelled of humans. Sesshomaru lightly growled. How he hated humans. He always wanted to get away from all the foolish Hanyous and that stupid toad that followed him...but he did not mean a place full of humans!
Damn you Hanyou.
Sesshomaru was not the one to use prophasive words, but he was annoyed. His anger was at a minimal, but he stil felt like going on a rampage. His plans to steal the Tetusaiga had gone wrong once more.
Sesshomaru looked at his clothes. All bloody. How would he get new ones now?
He was in a different dimension and had clothes in blood. With his damned injuries as well. Sesshomaru couldn't even comprihend when he had such injuries. It was frustrating, but he had his healing powers to heal his wounds. With his plans averted...for the time being, he would first need to find new clothes and then find his way to his dimension.
His eyes were a bit tired. But with the new sounds his ears picked up, it was a battle between his mind and instincts. Sesshomaru was unsure about the new place and he was also needing his powers and strength to return. Neither would happen anytime soon.
Sesshomaru stood up and decided that the sooner he found some clothes and his world, the better off he would be.
His eyes slightly wide.
There was no way a Demon besides himself could be in this dimension.
It was powerful.
Sesshomaru looked around and his eyes scanned the landscape. Some of the ground was soft and rugged. It looked like a flood of water and other content had washed over it. Sesshomaru walked toward the village he would no doubt find trouble...
"Help! My child is stuck!" Yelled a woman.
Sesshomaru looked around the village. It was torn up. Fires had started and water had washed over some of the grounds, drowning out any and all living creatures. Sesshomaru was amamzed at the power that had created such destrucctive forces and destruction.
That's what it was. Types of elements had created such that. But what Demon could control the elements?
This is unlike what Father could do. It is as if a true Demon without any thought had done this. But with this power and the scales of the way it churned the power...it is as if it was controlled. And no common Demon could control such forces.
Sesshomaru stopped. He could feel the mush of mud and grass under his shoes. He looked around and saw many people looking at him. It was the blood and the different clothing and the way he seemed to act that attracted them, was his conclusion.
"Are you here to help us?" One asked. Sesshomaru almost scoffed. But he remembered that they knew not of him and restrained himself
"No." He replied. Sesshomaru found the humans a bit akward than what the other humans were. They wore green like vests and dark pants with a sash wth a leaf like symbol carved into it. They had weapons that common ninja from Sesshomaru's world used.
Those weapons had targeted him more than once in his lifetime. Sesshomaru looked ahead.
"What is going on?" He asked.
"You don't know?" A man asked.
Sesshomaru's hand twitched, wanting to kill the man. Sesshomaru clenched his fist.
"All I see is destruction." He said.
"The Kyuubi No Kitsune is on its way here." A man with a toothpick in his mouth said. Sesshomaru stared ahead. "Where is your leader?" Sesshomaru asked.
"You mean the Yondaime?" One asked. Sesshomaru nodded, unsure of what a, "Yondaime" was.
"He's at the Kage Tower or the hospital." A young boy with silver hair said. Sesshomaru turned and headed in the direction that the "Yondaime" might be.
"Hey wait!" Sesshomaru ignored them. Their problems were not his.
Sesshomaru looked around the hosptital and saw many peopel in white running around.
He grabbed one by the arm. "Where is the Yondaime?" He asked.
"I am not obligated to tell you." The woman said.
Sesshomaru tightened his grip on her arm. She winced.
"Room 492." She said. Sesshomaru let her go and walked to the room.
Sesshomaru looked around as he saw 489.
He looked to his right.
Sesshomaru walked to the door and laid his hand on it.
He heard voices.
Male and female.
Sesshomaru opened it and two faces turned to him.
"Who are you?" A blond haired man said. Sesshomaru saw the stance the man took and smirked.
Overprotective much. Amusing.
"Are you the Yondaime?" Sesshomaru questioned. The man was taken aback by the question but nodded. "Yes, I am the Yondaime." He replied. Sesshomaru looked at the red haired girl in the bed.
"What is the name of this village?" Sesshomaru questioned. The reason he needed to know was because in case he tired of the toad when he saw him again, he could send the toad there and make him stay there as long as he wanted.
"What?" The Yondaime asked. They were in a battle with a Demon and a man was wanting to know what the name of the village was called?
Did he not know of the Demon?
"Konohagakure no Sato." He replied. Sesshomaru nodded. "Now about the Demon Fox, what do you know of it?" Minato sighed.
"Too long a story for now. But it's a Demon with nine tails and it causes much destruction. What's more, It's mind is currently enslaved." He said. A sudden cry was heard. The three occupants turned to the cry and a baby with blond hair that was wrapped in a blue blanket, stared at Sesshomaru. Minato looked at the baby and picked it up.
"Shh, it's okay Naruto. Daddy's here." The man cooed. Sesshomaru raised an eyebrow.
"Interesting. And that is the mother." Sesshomaru said as he looked at the woman.
"Kushina. Yeah, she's the mother." Minato said. Then his face turned solemn. "And you still haven't introduced yourself." He concluded.
"...Sesshomaru." He replied. Minato nodded. "My time's near. I better get the Sealing ready." He said.
"Sealing?" Sesshomaru questioned.
"A sealing allows me to seal the spirit of a Demon in an infant. And..." He looked down at the baby in his arms. Minato sighed. "...I hate to do this though." Sesshomaru looked out the window and saw a great, red beast heading to the village.
"So that's the Demon." He mumbled. Minato nodded sadly. "And Naruto is going to bear a heavy burden. I just wish I could be there for you." Sesshomaru stared at the two. His lips curved into a frown.
History always turns out in an ugly way. No matter who you are.
"What will happen to the infant after the sealing?" Sesshomaru asked.
"Kushina will look out for him." Minato said. Sesshomaru sensed something approaching the young woman fast, but he knew that it was already too late for her. She could not care for the boy.
But he remained silent.
"Good luck with it then. I must take my leave." Sesshomaru said.
"Wait!" The man said. Seshomaru turned. "What is it?"
"Who are you really? I know you are not a common civilian or a shinobi. By the blood on the clothing you wear, you're not from any village I have seen."
"You are correct," Minato took a defensive stance.
Sesshomaru opened the door.
"I am neither of any village or of this world. " He concluded as he left.
Sesshomaru looked up at the blood red sky which was raining.
It was already beginning.
Minato looked at the Demon which was snarling at him some feet away.
"Are you ready Gamabunta?" He asked a giant toad.
"If I'm ready or not doesn't matter. Let's just go!"
"...Room for one more?" A voice questioned.
Minato turned to look at Sesshomaru
"So what brought you back?" Minato asked with a grin.
"I have one thing to tell you about what you plan to do." Sesshomaru said.
Minato dropped his grin. "What is it?" He asked.
"The seal you plan to use will gradually weaken should the boy tap into the demon's power for the first time without learing control." Sesshomaru said, ignoring the killer intent from the Demon.
"I've already figured that. But it's worth it. If only for some years. But I still feel bad for leaving him like this." Minato said. Sesshomaru nodded.
"And that woman will soon follow." Sesshomaru said. Minato snapped his gaze to Sesshomaru.
"What?" He asked.
"She will follow. I can sense it. She is stricken ill now. Very little is currently noticeable. But its there." Sesshomaru said. Minato looked down.
"That means...Naruto would have no parents." Minato said. "He'll be fine. If you think he is strong enough to hold this great Demon, then surely he can hold his own against growing up without parents." Sesshomaru said.
"No, he needs parents! I grew up without any and it hurt deeply!" Sesshomaru was amazed at the man. "You don't know anything of it feels to be alone witho0ut parents!" Sesshomaru doged a tail as it came toward him.
"I do know how it feels." He said quietly to himself as he jumped forward.
Sesshomaru and Minato both fought the Denmon equally.
Sesshomaru looked at the giant toad that the Yondaime was riding on.
He shook his head as he used his whip against the Demon.
Minato looked at him with amazement.
How can he do that?
Sesshomaru stared the Demon down with his own piercing eyes, the Demon narrowed its eyes and let a terrible roar. Sesshomaru smirked and jumped back and he watched as the Demon raised a tail.
"Look out Sesshomaru!"
Sesshomaru raised his arms in front of him in a guarded position over his face and the Demon's tails rushed at him. Sesshomaru braced himself and waited for the impact.
But it didn't occur.
Sesshomaru looked ahead and saw the toad in front of him. Minato turned to him. "You okay Sesshomaru?" He asked. Sesshomaru nodded.
The Demon roared and it raised its paw and slashed the toad.
"Dammit! Minato, pay attention!" The toad yelled. Sesshomaru raised an eyebrow.
"Oh sorry Gamabunta." Minato said as he disappeared in a flash. Sesshomaru looked ahead.
What's your next move?
The blond reappeared with two blue balls of chakra in each hand. He rammed them into the Demon.
He jummped back as a red aura started to make its way to the injury.
"Healing. The Demon is healing itself." Sesshomaru stated.
"Healing? Dammit!" Minato cursed. Sesshomaru smirked. He reminded him of Inuyasha.
"Leave this to me." Sesshomaru said as he stepped forward.
"What? Sesshomaru, you can't be serious!"
"Just shut up and get the seal ready."
Sesshomaru stared ahead and he closed his eyes.
A wind picked up around him. His silver hair raised some and he reopened his eyes and they were red. He narrowed them and a light shot up in the air and soon came down on him, like a ray it traced the grounds and Sesshomaru was engulfed.
"What's happening?" Minato asked in a panic.
"This guy is different than any human." The toad stated.
The light disappeared and in Sesshomaru's place was a giant dog with white fur and blood red eyes. It was evenly sized with the Kyuubi.
"Sesshomaru?" Minato exclaimed.
The giant dog turned its eyes to him before staring at the other Demon. The Kitsune's eyes curved into what seemed like a smile.
"Hehe, and here I thought I was the only one." The Demon stated, speaking for the first time. Minato stared ahead.
I never would have believed this if I never saw it. Two Demons.
"That is interesting. Are you going to seal Sesshomaru as well?" The toad asked.
Minato shook his head. "No, I don't think he would do anything." He said. At least I hope. I just have high hope.
I need to finish this. This battle might result in more deaths than saving them. And I need to hurry in finding my way out of this place.
Sesshomaru lunged forward and grabbed the Demon's neck in his mouth and bit down hard, drawing blood.
The Demon raored in pain and it eyed Sesshomaru and slashed him with its claws across the side. Sesshomaru bit down harder. His older injuries were still there. And it was weakening him.
Get the seal formed! Sesshomaru thought to the Yondaime as he glared at him.
Minato nodded and started to perform the seals.
Sesshomaru jumped back as a light started to envelop the Fox Demon.
Sesshomaru looked back and saw the Yondaime falling off of the toad which was disapearing.
Sesshomaru disappeared and he reappeared with Minato on his back. Sesshomaru laid him down.
Minato opened his eyes. "It took you long enough." He teased. Sesshomaru reverted to his usual form.
"And vice versa." Sesshomaru shot back, there was something about this man that reminded Sesshomaru of his own father.
"Heh, yeah. I was just making sure you didn't do anything stupid."
Sesshomaru shook his head. "You are hopeless."
"Point taken." Minato looked at the raining sky.
"Sesshomaru?" Sesshomaru looked at him.
"Would you take my headband and cloak to the Residence and wait for a few years before giving it to Naruto?" He asked. Sesshomaru looked up. "What does "wait a few years before giving it to him" mean exactly?"
"I'm asking you to take care of Naruto." Minato said. Sesshomaru looked down at the man.
"What of the other people?"
"I have signed a certificate that says you are granted the Guardianship of Naruto. Along with Jiraiya who is the Godfather." Minato said. Sesshomaru sighed.
He had no choice.
"Very well." Sesshomaru said. Besides that, he could help the infant to train the Kyuubi's power. Not a bad feat.
"And I suppose he would need to know his parents' names. Kushina Namikaze and Minato Namikaze. That's the names." Sesshomaru nodded.
"I guess this is it." Minato said.
He smiled. "Tell the other guys I said good bye."
Minato's eyes closed. He was dead...with a smile on his face.
Sesshomaru sighed as he stood up.
"Good bye." He repeated.
