Naruto looked across at the Sand Demon he and Gamabunta were currently fighting. The battle was pretty even but Gamabunta was wearing down. He had managed to cut off one of his arms but the Demon was steadily firing air bullets. "Naruto we have to wake up the host. That should make the demon return back into his host." said Gamabunta. Naruto's face was configured in determination as a bead of sweat rolled down his face.
"Any ideas?" asked Naruto.
"Yes." replied the summon. He began to tell Naruto the plan.
Shikaku had gotten restless and wanted to fight. "You damn frog what the hell is taking you so long!" Renkudan! Yelled the Shikaku as he pressed his stomach multiple times firing air bullets at Gamabunta.
Gamabunta jumped high into the sky and yelled "Now!" He said Katon: Gamayu Endan! He fired oil that Naruto set on fire with a Katon: Endan! The Shikaku was hit and flew backwards, he used his only arm to get up. He was helpless as Gamabunta had been turned into the Kyuubi and latched onto him, and Naruto launched himself off of Gamabunta onto Shikaku and punched the shit out of Gaara. The red-head instantly awoke and flew off of the beast's shoulder who was yelling about being free. Naruto and Gaara fell out of the air and landed on the sand covered earth. Gamabunta poof-ed out of existence.
Naruto took in a shaky breath as he pushed his exhausted body off of the ground and began to walk toward Gaara. Gaara who saw this began to scream, "Stay away from me! Stay away!" He was surprised when Naruto sat next to him and looked up at the sky.
"It's wonderful huh, how the clouds never have to fight. They never have to argue yet they can reek havoc whenever they want." Naruto looked at Gaara who had a terrified expression on his face.
"Gaara I know how you feel, to be shunned and hated. To have no one, but you do have something I don't. A family, I can tell your sister and brother care about you a lot and hate what you have done to yourself. You don't have to bear the burden of that demon alone. There are others who want to help you but you have to let them. I have the Nine-tailed fox sealed in me and for years I have had no one but myself, no friends no family, nothing. You have a family and I'm giving you the chance to have a friend." Naruto looked Gaara in the eyes. He could tell he was going through a lot in his head.
Temari and Shikamaru stepped out of the forest and so did Kankurou and Shino. He looked around and stood up, "You can take him." said Naruto walking away. Temari and Kankurou went to him and picked him up rapping his arms around their shoulders.
"Thank you for not killing him." said Temari.
Naruto closed his eyes and said, "I never planned on killing him, he was no threat this far away from the village. But had he killed my teammate I may have not been so forgiving."
They nodded and began to walk away only to stop when Gaara spoke, "Uzumaki, I would like for you to be my friend." Naruto turned around and smiled.
"No problem Gaara." smiled Naruto as he Shikamaru and Shino turned and began to walk away.
"Do you think he will really change?" asked Shikamaru.
Naruto looked ahead, "There's is not much changing for him to do. He could have killed as many people as he wanted when he wanted yet he didn't he endured the hate and loneliness yet still kept the demon at bay. He only did this for his village, I'm sure he doesn't like being used but allowed himself to."
Shikamaru sighed and Shino nodded. As they were walking Naruto stopped, "Damn it! We forgot Sasuke!" he said as they turned around.
Lee looked at Orochimaru with hate in his eyes as tears streamed down his face. "She never told me what was wrong with her telling me she was just a little sick. She told me not to worry about her and that she would always love me. She was taken away from me by you! I never got to say goodbye." said Lee.
He then exploded with chakra as his pupil disappeared leaving a black ring. He disappeared and reappeared in front of Orochimaru with his fist in his gut knocking the wind out of him and breaking some ribs. Orochimaru was then kicked into the air where Lee had rapped him in his bindings and was beating the shit out of him all over the place. He while in the air kicked Orochimaru with both of his feet through the roof. He jumped through the hole and punched another whole in the roof using Orochimaru. When Orochimaru hit the ground Lee jumped on top of him and grabbed two kunai and stabbed both of his hands making him scream. He began slicing and stabbing both of Orochimaru's arms in a savage manner making the Sannin scream. He was savagely slicing and stabbing, as blood, skin, and muscle flew everywhere including on Lee's face.
Lee was kicked off of him by one of the Sound Four. As they grabbed Orochimaru and took off, the Anbu went straight to the Hokage. "Hokage-sama are you alright?" asked one of them.
The Hokage looked at them and said, "Yes I am fine. You should be more worried about him over there." he said pointing at Lee. The Anbu nodded and grabbed him jumping off.
3 days later..
Naruto walked up to room he was looking for. He opened the door to see Lee doing finger push-ups. He laughed, "I'm pretty sure the doctor didn't tell you to do that." sad Naruto.
Lee looked up and smiled, "Hello Naruto-kun!" yelled Lee. Naruto sat in one of the chairs. Lee sat on his bed and looked at Naruto.
"Lee I heard about your heroic battle next to the old man." said Naruto.
Lee smiled, "Yes Naruto-kun, it is a battle I can never forget."
Naruto looked at Lee and pulled out two scrolls. "I heard you can use chakra now, I am very happy for you." said Naruto.
Lee looked down, "Yes, now I can't become a great ninja without the use of chakra." replied Lee.
Naruto laughed, "You already have Lee, you helped defeat two Kage's with just taijutsu. Who else can say that?" said Naruto making Lee smile. He handed him the two scrolls. "I went to your old home after the old man told me about the story about your clan and found that black scroll right there on your bed. I didn't read it, and the other one is from me. I will see you around my friend." said Naruto walking out the door.
Lee looked at the scroll before opening it. Lee's eyes widened at the first sentence.
If you are reading this it means that I have died. There are a lot of things that I have to tell you. First off, I did not die from being sick or anything, I was poisoned by a sick man. His name is Orochimaru, he wanted to use me for bad things. Do not try to avenge me Rocky-chan, I am gone and killing him will not bring me back and will do nothing but bring you sadness and waste your time and talents. I love you and I want you to become strong and defend and fight for what you love. Now it's time you learn about your clan, we come from the Lee Clan. We were a strong clan that rivaled the Uchiha and Hyuuga. We came to Konoha after it was founded but helped make it great. Many of our clan was wiped out during the Great Ninja Wars, we made up most of the front line and helped greatly in the wars. The last few of us were wiped out during the Kyuubi attack and your father was killed on a mission and never returned. Our clan has a bloodline, one we never bothered to name because we don't see a reason to. Our bloodline gives us the ability to recover stamina at a inhuman rate, even while standing still, and the ability to heal extremely fast. These are the basic abilities, but our bloodline's greatest ability is one that must be unlocked. See our clan has a lot of members that are born with disabilities such as being blind, deaf, mute and very rarely without the ability to use chakra regularly. Our clans members over come these disabilities young and when they activate their bloodline it becomes their greatest strength. When the bloodline unlocks not only are their disabilities gone, they are their greatest strengths. The blind members have been known to see chakra, great distances and predict movements like the Uchiha and even use eye jutsu of their own creation. But you, you are special, you were born without the ability to use chakra like very few have in our clans whole history. When your bloodline unlocks not only will you be able to use chakra but when you activate your bloodline it will multiply your reserves. By how much I don't know I think there are levels. Our bloodline is an activation bloodline so you have to turn it on yourself. Also for you it will be different, you cant just turn it on and off to keep restoring your reserves. It multiplies by how much chakra you naturally hold and expands your network and coils to handle that amount multiplied. The quicker you use it in succession the less you will have after each time. For example, it can be multiplied by ten the first time then if you use it again, then by three then two then not at all, just restored. But enough about your bloodline, I want you to be happy Rocky-chan. I want you to have kids with who ever you love, and if your anything like your father you like older women and try to cover it up by declaring your love for some unattractive girl that is younger than you. Follow your heart, be strong never discriminate or hate people who you do not know. I love you Rocky-chan and treat all of my grandchildren the same or I will haunt you.
I love you Rocky-chan, be strong my little man.
Lee looked at the letter with tears rolling down his face. He laid back as the sun shined through the window on him. He closed his eyes as memories of his mother flashed through his mind.
Naruto walked into the next room he was looking for to see Sasuke staring out the window.
"How are you teme?" asked Naruto.
Sasuke turned his head and looked at him, "What do you want dobe." replied Sasuke.
"I was just coming by to see how you were, I'm surprised that Sakura isn't in here bugging you." said Naruto.
"She left with Kakashi a little while ago, she can be aggravating as hell." replied Saskue.
Naruto knew what was on Sasuke's mind but didn't know how to say it so he just said it, "Sasuke, I know you are still thinking about that battle with the Suna container. It's okay what happened and you did better than most people would."
Sasuke turned toward Naruto, "What the hell do you know! You have been growing stronger while I have been getting no where! I don't know what happened after that Wave Mission but since then you have been leaving me behind."
Naruto stared at Sasuke, "What the hell are you talking about Sasuke! If you want the truth. I am nit much stronger than you, maybe not stronger at all. I have been working my ass off for what I have, none of this came easy. You have too many problems, one of them is you want strength to be handed to you. No one can just give you strength and if they can it probably isn't really yours. Look at Itachi, was he given the title if Genin, Chuunin, and Jounin before he was even a teenager? No, yet you are wanting to beat him with strength you want to be given. Did he have a mark giving him strength? I know you want to kill him and I won't try to change your mind. But maybe you need to reverse your goals or ambitions which ever you call it. Then maybe you will find the strength you are looking for." Naruto walked toward the door and opened it.
"Naruto what do you mean I will find the strength I'm looking for?" asked Sasuke.
Naruto replied, "Think about it Sasuke, why do you want to kill Itachi. They all died a ninja's death like I'm sure most of your prideful family wanted. Besides there are three sides to story, your side, his side, and the truth." with that being said he walked out leaving Sasuke to his thoughts.
