The two faced each other once again. They stood upright, looking into the other's eyes. They both got into a stance. "Naruto, I'm going to end this." Sasuke said, assured. Naruto stared at him, "I'm going to end this too, by dying with you." Naruto stated. Sasuke's eyebrows furrowed.
"You're an idiot." Sasuke said, grabbing a kunai. Naruto did the same. "I was called an idiot for never giving up on you before. I'm still going to be that idiot. The only idiot that even cares about you!" Naruto charged at Sasuke.
The Uchiha looked at Naruto. He held the kunai up and aimed at him. Naruto dodged, creating clones. "You did give up on me. You said so." Sasuke said, no emotion. "Sasuke! I gave up on bringing you back. Not on you!" Naruto shouted, creating Rasengans with the various amount of clones.
Sasuke watched, he activated his Sharingan. "You're using that same trick from before?" He scoffed, jumping into the air. He threw one kunai with a paper-bomb attached to it. It exploded, all the clones vanished. Sasuke landed back onto the ground.
"Not the same!" Naruto was behind Sasuke, a Rasengan aimed from behind him. Sasuke turned around and grabbed his Katana to block it. Thankfully, he was in time. He jumped a few meters away from Naruto's blow.
"Naruto...Your amateur moves are useless against my Sharingan at normal level." Sasuke commented. Naruto launched himself at Sasuke. Sasuke backed away. "You really are stupid." He muttered. He made signs for Chidori.
Naruto backed away so that way he wasn't caught in the lightning. "There has to be something I can try..." He whispered. Naruto created more clones. "Go after him! Don't worry about the lightning!" One Naruto ordered. Naruto decided to create a plan that would get a hit on Sasuke.
All the clones were hit by the Chidori Stream. Sasuke smirked, victorious. "Once again, it's pointless." He said, loud enough for wherever Naruto was to hear. "Always watch behind!" Naruto shouted as he kicked Sasuke in the back. Sasuke went flying across the field.
Sasuke coughed. "How dare I fall for that..." He muttered, as he got back up. Naruto ran at him, landing several punches and kicks on Sasuke. Sasuke still had his Katana and used it to try and chop off one of Naruto's arms. Too bad he only cut the shirt.
Naruto back flipped a few yards. "Sasuke... How unfair. I haven't even tried to rid you of your arms yet!" Naruto shouted, playfully. This gave him a scowl from Sasuke.
"You idiot! I'm done playing with you!" He shouted and blew fireballs. Naruto jumped out of the way. "Is that your best shot? Let me show you how to get a target!" Naruto yelled and threw smoke bombs.
Sasuke growled. "That does you no good! I can see chakra as different- What?" he questioned, shocked. "It's a chakra smoke bomb. I had Sakura make it for me. Now you're at a disadvantage for some time." Naruto explained. Sasuke glared fiercely.
"I'll find you some way or another!" He shouted darkly. "Try if you can." Naruto landed a punch onto Sasuke's face. He hit the ground. Naruto made another punch on Sasuke's gut. Unfortunately, Sasuke grabbed Naruto by his hair.
"I can sense you though." He said as he punched Naruto in the gut. Naruto was sent into the back of a rock. He gasped as he felt the impact. Sasuke got up, dusted himself off and walked over to Naruto. "I can't believe I used to call you a friend." The words hit Naruto harshly. What did he mean by that. "What?" Naruto questioned. "I always thought you were equal to my strength." So that's what. Naruto knew there was a piece missing. Something that made him feel terrible. He imagined the words coming out of the Uchiha's mouth, "How could I have been friends with someone who gave up on me even the slightest." Naruto knew Sasuke would never say that.
Naruto got up to lunge at Sasuke. Sasuke grabbed him by his arms. "You know what, I'm actually wanting to get onto something much more interesting." Sasuke muttered evilly. Naruto frowned. "Sasuke, go on an activate those cursed eyes of yours." Naruto ordered. Sasuke's internal mangekyo appeared. Naruto's eyes lowered. "This is what happened. All because everyone turned their back on you." He whispered, and kicked Sasuke in the leg. Sasuke threw him off.
"No. This is what happened because of the village you consider home ordered my brother to kill everyone!" Sasuke yelled. A dark aura engulfed Sasuke. Naruto shielded his eyes. "The village did this? No! You chose to do this! You decided to live an avengers life! You're the reason! Not Konoha!" Naruto shouted. Sasuke grew angrier. "You idiot! You have no idea about anything! You protect that garbage of a village that tormented you too!" Sasuke growled.
Naruto clenched his fists. "I'm different from you." He whispered. He went into the nine-tails form. "I have control now. I can take you out, Sasuke." Naruto said, assured. Sasuke smirked, insanely. "We'll see who wins!" Sasuke laughed. Naruto's eyes lowered, solemnly. "Sasuke, you're damaged." He whispered to himself. 'Even if we survive this battle, Sasuke might be lost forever. He'll be a victim to insanity. They will kill him either way.' Naruto thought.
He ran at Sasuke with his new inhuman speed. The large golden claws extended to the Dark Susanoo's face. Sasuke stood still, though he began to go into a coughing fit. Naruto attacked the dark monster. His golden claws clawed at the creature who sent his sword at Naruto. Sasuke fell to his knees coughing blood. Naruto noticed how much just activating Susanoo costs Sasuke. "If you're going to end up weak just summoning that thing, then don't do it!" Naruto yelled at Sasuke.
The said boy glared at him. "Power comes at risks. If this takes you out, it'll be worth it." He stated. He coughed after that. Naruto charged right at him, penatrating the shield. Sasuke's eyes widened in horror. "How did you?" He stood up, coughing. Naruto launched his claws at Sasuke, grabbing him. "Remove the Susanoo!" He ordered. Sasuke glared at him. He did as told but sent Chidori through Naruto.
Naruto screamed as the electicity ran through his body. He fell to his knees and released Sasuke from his grasp. He entered back to his normal form. Sasuke stood over him, his Katana pointed at the blonde's head. "It ends here." He whispered. He aimed the katana at Naruto's head, but the Uzumaki grabbed it with his bare hands. "I'm not going to die without you." He said forcefully. The blade was cutting into his hands.
Sasuke jerked the katana out of Naruto's grasp. The blonde's hands were bleeding heavily. Naruto stared at Sasuke. He stood up. "No matter what you do to me. I'm not going to die without you." He repeated the sentence again. Sasuke laughed loudly. "You are so Stupid! Have you no idea that we can'd die together? You either kill me or I kill you! Nothing more!" He shouted, finding it all to be seriously funny.
Naruto frowned. "You are so messed up! If that's how you believe it, then I'll prove to you that we can die together!" Naruto shouted, a RasenShuriken heading towards Sasuke. The Uchiha's eyes widened at surprise. He jumped over the spiraling amount of chakra. "You're insane Sasuke! You're broken! You're hurting right now!" Naruto shouted. Sasuke stared at him with a glance of hatred. "You've focused your live on revenge! You don't have to do that anymore!" Naruto yelled and ran at Sasuke with another Rasenshuriken.
Sasuke moved at several angles, trying to dodge. "Hmph! I'll just burn you to death!" Sasuke growled. His left eye began to bleed. Naruto jumped behind Sasuke, so that way he couldn't be burned. "I've had practice with someone who has a similar ability. They taught me how to dodge!" Naruto laughed softly. Sasuke turned around, Naruto went back to the Uchiha's back. "You idiot! Let me burn you!" Sasuke shouted, growing impatient.
Naruto aimed the Rasenshuriken at Sasuke's back. He gripped Sasuke's shoulder carefully. Sasuke looked at him with a look of pain. "You..." The Susanoo hit Naruto's arm. "Heh...My Rasenshuriken went through you..." He said, looking at the gap in Sasuke's back. The chakra had cut through Sasuke's body, right at the chest. Sasuke looked down in horror once again.
"You..." He stopped the burning on Naruto's arm. He fell to the ground. "How could you?" He spat out blood. Naruto smiled, he knelt down to Sasuke. "As for finishing the rest, aim your Chidori into my chest." Naruto mumbled. Sasuke stared at him, confused. "I can't die yet. I'm not going to die!" Sasuke yelled, coughing up more blood. Naruto rubbed a bloody hand on Sasuke's back, masaging in small circles. "Sasuke...Look at me with the real you. You're about to die." Naruto stated.
Sasuke glared at him. "I can't believe you, of all people...Why? Why didn't you give up on me?" Sasuke questioned. Naruto smiled lightly. "I'll tell you if you aim your Chidori at me." Naruto stated. Sasuke started a Chidori and aimed it at Naruto's chest. Naruto fell next to Sasuke, clenching his teeth. "Tell me..." Sasuke pleaded. "Well...You're my friend. The only person who accepted me more than anything." Naruto had said it many times before. Sasuke turned over and helped Naruto do the same, looking at the sky.
"But I betrayed you. Beat you up back then. You still consider me a friend?" He questioned, his voice cracking. Naruto smiled. "Even though you did that it was because of what happened in the past." Naruto explained. Sasuke closed his eyes. "Still..." Naruto sighed. He felt the electricity begin to numb him. "Sasuke, use Chidori once more." Sasuke froze. "No." Naruto looked at him surprised. "You aren't going to die with me. You still haven't accomplished your goal." Sasuke said, his voice soft.
Naruto looked at him in confusion. "You haven't-" Sasuke huffed. "I'm a criminal in the others' eyes. I have no use even being alive." So the real Sasuke shows. "Sasuke, I said we'll die together! I don't want you to die alone!" Naruto shouted, his fists hitting the dirt. Sasuke turned his head to him. A small smile on his face. "I'm not alone." He whispered. Naruto looked at him confusingly.
"I know I'll be alone when I'm dead, because of all the wrong I caused, but at least before I die I get to see the only person who cared." Sasuke smile was from the bottom of his heart. Naruto smiled back. "Sasuke...I shouldn't have..." Naruto started, Sasuke's hand came over and touched him. "Naruto it's fine. As much as I ahte to admit, I will hate being alone but I'll have to deal with it." Sasuke said, still smiling. Naruto felt warm tears fall. "Sasuke...I still want you alive..." Naruto sobbed. Sasuke was silent.
"We can't always have what we want. Isn't that right?" Sasuke questioned. Naruto gazed into Sasuke's black eyes. "Those aren't yours are they?" He questioned. Sasuke lowered his gaze. "No. They're Itachi's." Sasuke whispered. "Naruto...I just have one thing to say..." Naruto's eyes widened. "Live out your dream. Live out of happiness. Sure hard times will come, when don't they? When it seems futile that happiness won't come, think back to happier times." Sasuke's eyes began to close.
"Sasuke! SASUKE!" Sasuke's eyes closed. Thunder was heard, followed by lightning and rain. Sasuke remained still. Naruto cried. He manage to move over to the dead body of his friend. He cried into it. "Sasuke..." He sobbed. The rain fell like tears. "Please...Please don't...be dead..." Naruto whispered. He looked at Sasuke's face. A small smile on his face, like he had never been angry.
"Naruto! Naruto!" Sakura ran onto the field. She looked down to see her teammate. "Naruto..." She whispered blankly. No tears fell from her eyes. "Naruto...He's gone. We have other things to worry about." Naruto stopped. He froze in place. Tears still fell from his face. "Even if you hate him now, you should still feel sorrow for someone who was once your teammate." Naruto stood up. He looked down at Sasuke's body. Sakura walked over and looked down. "He's smiling..." She mumbled.
Naruto nodded. "Sakura, what's going on in the war?" He questioned. Sakura sighed. "Apparently, Madara is attacking several groups. He's using an attack the former Pain members used." Sakura answered. Naruto nodded. Naruto picked up Sasuke's dead body. "What are you planning on doing with him?" She asked. "I'm burying him somewhere peaceful. Far away from war." He began to walk off. "I'll be back soon. You be strong." He said, looking at his friend.
Sakura turned around to head back to the battlefield. She ran at a fast pace. "If he's going somewhere peaceful, he'll be fine." She assured herself.
Naruto carried Sasuke over to an area with a waterfall. It was closed in, two huge boulders made it look like an entrace to an oasis. The waterfall ended in a beautiful pond. Several trees were surrounding the other boulders. "A nice place, huh, Sasuke? You get to rest here."
