''Boss Summons, Demons, Dark beings speaking, Demonic/Angry characters speaking as well as extremely Dark spells and Magic.''
Naruto found himself taking residence in the institute for the time being. It would take a bit of time for Professor Xavier to come up with a history for the blond. Thankfully enough he saved some time by creating a kagebunshin to write his information for him. Coming up with an ID and Birth Certificate in itself would need some careful maneuvering along with false school transcripts/grade and other things. Though of course he was going to undergo a medical examination of sorts to help make his records more genuine.
''This won't be one of your turn your head and cough sort of exams is it?'' Naruto asked, just able to keep the smirk off his face.
''No it's not,'' the attractive redhead in white coat remarked as she directed Naruto from the scale to the examination table. The young woman really was a beauty with her long red lustrous curls. ''I'm going to start by taking your temperature.'' she said as she brought out a thermometer.
Naruto simply nodded and held it under his tongue. The red-head raised her arm and began counting the seconds off her watch. When the red-head removed it Naruto decided to ask something. ''So miss Grey what made you decide to become a nurse?''
''I actually haven't decided on a profession. Long story short my sister has a habit of being injured and I always had to tend to her injuries, so I figured since I have a bit of experience tending to wounds, learning first aid and going to a few medical classes offered at the hospital would be a nice skill to have.''
''I see...'' Naruto remarked as the woman quizzical looked at the results.
''102.0? Is that normal...for you?'' she asked him, still a bit startled at the number.
''More or less. My temperature tends to fluctuate from time to time. It's perfectly normal all things considering.''he said as the young woman tend asked him to present his arm so she could check his blood pressure. ''Look I can tell you now that most poisons don't work on me and chances are any disease would be annihilated by anti-bodies with ease. With that out-of-the-way I got a very important question for you? Got a boyfriend?''
Later that day Naruto was explaining his unique relationship and practices to Rogue. While she didn't react as negatively as some people had her reaction was still enough to set Naruto off.
''Look I can understand our cultures being different and know more people often than not partake in a Monogamous relationship, but to refer to what I share with the women I love as disgusting is not something I'm just going to take! You have your beliefs and I have mine and I don't appreciate the fact you react just like every other close minded person when you find out my polygamous practices. It isn't just some big sexfest but a family; a community in itself and while people may argue against it, our personal happiness and relationship is quite frankly none of their business. Everyone involved is a consenting adult by the standards of wherever they come from or is old enough and mature enough to make the choice. Are some of these women marriages of convenience? Yes? Are some of them to insure alliances? Yes? But you know what? This sort of cultural thing has been going on for many years and people should accept that. I'm not saying it's right or just in every case and sometimes people don't get that all encompassing true love that every annoying princess movie or sappy romance shoves down your throat, but you know what? Life doesn't work that way. Love isn't always an all or nothing deal. Sometimes people just have to deal with acceptable happiness. While over the years I've been selfish in many regards I at least try to respect people's decisions and ways that don't revolve around intentionally hurting and subjugating others.''While normally people just felt bad or the opposite and cared less as they stuck to their principles Rogue could for a brief feel's Naruto emotions and it made her realize the depth of his feelings for his precious ones. It wasn't something she wasn't quite ready for along with the feelings that followed. For one she felt shame, for jumping to conclusions and judging something based on her narrow perspective of the manner. While Rogue's viewpoints on relationships were of Monogamous nature, her guardians from when she was a young child, definitely weren't in what could be considered a normal or right relationship, even in current times; despite the fact people were more accepting of it nowadays. Something else she couldn't help but feel was jealousy and it was mostly thanks to this damn bond and it didn't help she could feel Naruto's annoyance with the situation.
Even if she wasn't looking in his eyes she felt, could tell he didn't mean for this to happen at all. That he couldn't help the emotional bonds ended up being formed and he didn't trick her into this situation; that while he was trying to build a family of not for the noblest of reasons that deep down part of himself hating himself for falling into this situation that had almost become predictable. That the source of those feelings were stemming from so much guilt.
''Ah'm sorry...it wasn't mah place to judge. Ah hope y'all can forgive me for being so quick to judge. With my condition and all things considered ah guess ah shouldn't be judging people; y'all won't hold this moment of actin' a fool against a gal would you?'' Rogue asked as Naruto shook his head, his current emotional state resetting back to its state.
''No, I mean I guess all things consider my situation is a bit outlandish. Happy, that's how I should feel with what I have now, but I always have this sense of incompleteness. It's a side effect of Deimos's merger. I got a bit of the countless people he influenced and such when someone touches that part of me it awakens and we just click. Though if I am being honest even I was becoming daunted at the numbers before I realize that I'm more then just simply Naruto. I've become so many people during my journey and the friends and family made deserved that bit of happiness; to have that person in their life. So for instance I managed to create the perfect version of one of my existing techniques based around the concept of forming clones. Unfortunately I have to limit how much it gets outside the base power of that particular world and his abilities. Like for instance I have a persona known as Ben Tennyson; now he is probably experiencing different events and forming new memories as a different consciousness. Whenever we are in the same universe he fades into a pocket dimension of sorts and I gain those memories, but when we are in a separate dimension our consciousness and bodies are separate. That part of me that has truly become a unique person lives on as a part of me, but also as a separate entity. It also solves the one guy and multitude of many girl problems as well without me sacrificing that part of me that the people of that particular world got to know and love. And of course with each new adventure I learn something about my self and grow as a person; without a doubt that growth can even began when I meet and just click with a person. It's why that bond formed between you and me so easily Rogue. Inner turmoil, power we can't control, a need of touch in your case or in mind's acknowledging my very existence. For most this whole thought process is a bit daunting.''
''Y'all don't say. It's still a bit unbelievable all these women are willing to share. Then again considering my lack of love life ah guess Ah'm not one to really talk about such things.''
''Nonsense, I believe you add a unique perspective to things based off your own viewpoint, but yeah it isn't all puppies and sun shines. I can't tell you how many fights or arguments I had to break up. I even almost lost the affection of a few of my girls because I ended up putting alliances and business ahead of their feelings. That really isn't something one really wants to project you know and Rogue I want to help you control your power.'' The two of them came a stop in front of a small garden Ororoe took to growing. They had spent so much time walking when they were talking they just realized they were on the other side of the mansion.
''Ah thought y'all sayud that it was impossible.'' she remarked as she briefly felt Naruto's uncertainty.
''As I said before it could be some mental backlash if we tried to end the bond correctly, not that its guaranteed. I don't want you to feel like you have to be with me simply because you have the ability to touch me without my life force drained.'' he said as he held up Rogue's hand. He could see the fear in her eyes, a stock reaction as a result of always having to be careful he supposed as he removed her glove and held his hand against her bare hand only for Rogue to siphon a brief surge of his power which felt about like a small static shock then anything. After it was over their hands pressed against each other with the only side effect of Rogue being a little light-headed. ''You shouldn't feel you like you're forced into no other choice. That you'll lie to yourself, fool yourself just for the ability to feel in the end could result in both of us being unhappy.''
''Give a gal some credit. Ah can make decisions for mahself you know?'' she said jabbing her finger into Naruto's chest. She didn't know why, but Naruto's intent on warning her away grating on her nerves. It was as if he was saying if they got together there would be nothing but misery and that was a bit of a blow to her pride that and his insinuation if she did felt something that it wouldn't be genuine anyway, in his matter of speaking. ''So if Ah feel somethang then ah'm sure ah'll know if it's genuine or not? Y'all got anythang to say tot hat?''
''Yes, that southern accents are very sexy.'' he said, making a complete 180 to how he was acting earlier, throwing Rogue off who couldn't help but blush at the complement. ''And that green is really your color. I'm not saying you and I wouldn't make the great couple, but I don't want to make the same mistake that I did in many of my past entanglements and letting our biggest links being our shared pained instead of a strong romantic interest and interest based off what we know of each other that's all.''
A part of Rogue was fighting the urge to shy away; which if anyone would ever discover what was going on at the moment which they shouldn't be able too, she would vehemently deny that she let a few words fluster her so easily and the other part was curious of learning more about this strange young man who was much older in heart and mind then he appeared.
''How about this? T'ink you up for a little clothes shoppin'? We can get to know each other in a more casual setting. As long as we avoid drawin' attention to ourselves ah don't think the professor will mind.''
''Sounds good to me...'' he said as they made their way to the mansion.
Next time we have Naruto meeting the rest of the X-students. So yeah...
