Hello everyone. Okay, just a couple things here, I also forgot to mention that in this story everyone is basically living a normal life. Yes people, meaning that there's no jutsu or anything. It's based here in the future, but of course it's in Japan. So, I'm still thinking of a second girl for Naruto, and that's all I'm having with him. Just Mei and some other one that will come to mind later on. But enough talk, onto the story.
I don't own anything that has to do with Naruto.
Chapter 1: The Infection
Location: Konoha Mall
Several voices were heard throughout the mall. Everyone was enjoying their time with exploring the mall and the time they were enjoying with their friends. There was one group that you all would be familiar with. There was a group just sitting at a table in the food court. It was a group of high school kids and there were only five of them and yet, they were all still wearing their school uniforms. The girl's uniforms consisted a black skirt that was only an inch above their knees and a white blouse. The guys wore a plain short-sleeved white collared shirt and black khakis. Mainly the group consisted of girls; one of them had short pink hair with a red ribbon tied in her hair. Her name was Sakura Haruno; she's an eighteen-year-old girl with emerald green eyes that had only one main interest. Sure her interest turned out to turn her down after they were in a four-year relationship, but she wouldn't let that go. She has been trying to get back with the man she loved after all those years, but she has had no luck. They've known each other ever since elementary and were the best of friends. Then years after that, which was in their freshmen year, they ended up falling for one another and ended up together as a sweet couple. By now, you're all wondering whom exactly I'm talking about. Well, that man she's been trying to get back with was none other then Naruto Uzumaki.
Naruto Uzumaki, a nineteen-year-old man that was very energetic, outgoing; yet most the girls fell for him. He had wild yellow spiky hair, with blue colored eyes along with whisker marks on his face. He was sitting on her right side and was also enjoying the conversation they were all having. Naruto, well in his freshmen year, Naruto ended up becoming a football player and which shortly after that was when him and his best friend ended up together. Sure when those two were together, it was big news going around the school, as most the girls didn't like it one bit. Some girls tried to seduce Naruto and kept trying to get him to leave Sakura for them. However, Naruto would just laugh in his mind and easily turn them down since he truly loved Sakura. However, when it came to the last day of school, they realized how they were going to part and go to different colleges. They knew that it wouldn't workout too well and decided to breakup. When they broke up, they both knew it was hard for the both of them but, Sasuke didn't want to see them go through with this and tried to get them back together before they parted.
Sasuke Uchiha, a nineteen-year-old man that would rarely talk. He would mainly only talk with his friends and show no interest of making anymore. He mainly liked to hangout with his brother. No, not his official brother Itachi Uchiha, I'm talking about his best friend that is like his brother, Naruto Uzumaki. Those two were basically childhood friends. They've grownup together since they were neighbors and ended up hanging out a lot. They mainly talked about things that bothered them, or problems they wanted to share and see what the other had to say. You know, the basic stuff. Sasuke would mainly go where Naruto would. He was also on the football team with his childhood friend. They were known as the best two players that would keep the team up and take them to victory. However, he had a weakness at times when it came to her yelling, it would always mean trouble for him. That girl was none other then Ino.
Ino Yamanaka, she was an eighteen-year-old girl that was a cheerleader with long blonde hair that was tied in a ponytail. She was mainly the kind of flirty type kind of girl in which she tried getting with Naruto, but she decided not to. Since she saw how her best friend was with him at the time. Whenever she would see a hot guy that would catch her attention, she would instantly cling to him. However, that hasn't happened lately ever since she's been with Sasuke. You probably want to know how these two ended up. Well, her best friend Sakura was the one that hooked them up by leaving the two alone at a park, which shortly the two eventually just jumped on one another. Sometimes, her and Sakura would have problems and shortly it would end up in a fight. However, one girl would always try and stop them since she hated to see her friends fight. Her name was Tenten.
Tenten, an eighteen-year-old girl that was also a cheerleader. She has brown hair with two buns that had one on each side. It made it look as if she had panda ears on her head. She was sort of the quiet type, kind of like Sasuke. Mainly she would only pay attention to mainly girls and get shy around guys. But, there was only one guy she showed interest in. Yeah, yeah, you could probably guess who that was. It was Naruto, she would usually have some problems in school and Naruto would always be there to help her with them. She knew Sakura had been his girlfriend and yet she would hide those feelings. But, when she found out the two had broke up not to long ago, she has been acting a bit more affectionate around him. Sakura realized how she's been acting differently and didn't like it one bit. As you know now, that is why Sakura's been trying her best to get back with Naruto. She didn't want to see him with another girl; it would just make her feel different.
"So, Naruto…" Sakura said, as she wrapped herself around his left arm. "What should we do later?" She asked in a seductive tone.
Naruto turned to face her and cocked an eyebrow, "Um what exactly do you mean by that?"
"You know…" She placed her finger on his chest and trailed it down his body. "Just some alone time."
"Sakura… I thought we've already discussed this?"
She pouted her face, "But…"
"Naruto." He turned around to face his best friend Sasuke. "Come with me for a second." He said, as he got up from the table, while Naruto followed him.
He led him a good distance from the table to where the girls couldn't hear them, "Okay Naruto, what's up man? Why are you acting like this to her?"
"Sasuke… let's not talk about this please."
"Oh come on man, you've known her since elementary and she deeply cares about you. She practically loves you and yet after you broke up from a four year relationship with her, she's been acting as if she was hurt."
Naruto sighed, as he turned around to start walking the opposite direction. Sasuke followed him remaining next to his side, "Sasuke… I know, but since we're not going to see each other for along time, I just don't see how it'll work."
They were now starting to walk into a crowd that was slowing them down, "But Naruto… does it not come to show you that she really loves you? She knew you two would not see each other for awhile and yet she still wanted to be with you but you just wouldn't allow it."
He turned his head to the side to look at him, "Look, I just… oomph." He stopped due to bumping into someone. Naruto let out a sigh, as he kept his attention on his brother, "Now look what you made me do?" He blinked and turned to face a woman that was sitting on her bum. He just stood there seeing how gorgeous she was. She had ankle length hair that was an auburn color. Her hair had a topknot tied with a dark blue band, and with four bangs at the front. Two of them were short with one covering her right eye, and the other two were long, which were crossing each other on her chest. She had light green eyes similar to Sakura's. She was wearing a dark blue dress with long sleeves that falls just below her knees. It was closed at the front with a zip and was kept open on the front-right side from the waist down. The upper part of her dress only covered up to the upper part of her arms and was underside of her breasts, which were a D-cup size. Underneath her dress, she wore a mesh shirt that covered more of her upper body then her dress, but it stopped short of covering her shoulders, in which still showed a good amount of her cleavage. She also wore shorts, which were the same color as her dress and underneath those were mesh leggings, which reached down over her knees. She also wore a belt around her waist with a pouch attached to the back of it. She was wearing high-heeled sandals. Her nails were colored dark blue, which her lips were too. She looked as if she was in her mid twenties.
She looked up at the man she had bumped into, "Why don't you watch where you're going?" She said.
Naruto shook his head and held out his hand to her, in which she gratefully accepted it and got back up to her feet, "I'm sorry miss, are you okay?"
"Yeah I'm fine, just watch where you're going." She said, as she walked past him. Naruto turned around to watch her walking off, which his eyes were focused in one area and that, was her bum.
Sasuke watched Naruto, as he cocked an eyebrow, "You know I'm still here right?" He asked.
Naruto turned back around and looked at Sasuke with a blush on his face, "Ugh… yeah I knew you were still here." He started to laugh slightly and lifted his hand to the back of his head and scratched it.
However, Naruto turned back around to realize that the woman was gone, "Damn it." He whispered.
Sasuke shook his head and rolled his eyes, "Why don't we get back to the girls?"
"Ugh… sure." He answered, as they turned away from the crowd and headed back to the girls.
"Why don't you just have a nice talk with him Sakura? I mean, you make it obvious that you still love him." Ino asked.
Sakura's eyes softened, "I don't know… I've tried and tried, but he just doesn't show the same emotions that I have for him. I think the reason why he broke up with me is because… he doesn't trust me."
Ino and Tenten gasped upon hearing that, "Oh come on Sakura, you two have been friends ever since elementary. I don't see how he can't trust you." Ino said.
"I just think… because we won't see each other for along time, he probably thinks that I would cheat on him."
Ino scooted over next to Sakura and placed her left arm around her shoulders, "Then what you need to do is just talk to him tell him how you really feel and show him you mean what you say."
"Don't worry Sakura, if it doesn't workout for you, then I'll just go after him myself." Tenten said.
Ino looked over at Tenten, as her eyes twitched slightly, "Tenten, you're not helping."
Sakura looked over at Tenten, "How about you just leave him alone? You only knew him since junior year. I doubt he'll show any love interest in you anyway."
Tenten rose out of her seat and looked at Sakura, "I don't think so. You can't control other people's emotions."
Sakura then rose up out of her seat as well and glared at Tenten, "I didn't say I could, I just want you to stay away from him. You hardly know anything about him, unlike myself, I pretty much know almost everything about him."
"Oh yeah? And what if I don't?"
Ino got up from her seat and placed herself in between the two, "Will you two calm down? Don't make this anymore trouble enough as it is or I'll have to hurt you both."
Tenten sighed and waved her hand, "Fine, but I can probably win Naruto over. I'm pretty sure it won't take much from me to even win him."
That was it Sakura couldn't take it anymore. She moved around Ino and jumped at Tenten. She caused them both to fall with her on top of Tenten and started punching her across the face, "You won't go anywhere near him!"
Tenten grabbed Sakura's arm to prevent her from punching her again and flipped them over with her on top this time. She swung at Sakura getting a few hits in, "How about you worry about yourself? He already turned you down cause it was obvious that he couldn't trust you."
Ino grabbed Tenten by the shoulders trying to get her off of Sakura, "Stop! This is going out of hand!"
"Naruto, don't tell me you want to find that girl…"
Naruto chuckled a bit, "I do actually. She was just…"
"Would you two stop!"
Naruto and Sasuke looked at where the yelling was coming from and saw Tenten and Sakura fighting. They ran toward them, "Tenten get off of her!" Ino yelled, while trying to lift her off of her.
Naruto and Sasuke appeared, as Sasuke pulled Ino away. Naruto grabbed Tenten by the shoulders and easily lifted her off of Sakura. Tenten tried to break free from Naruto to go back after Sakura, but then Sasuke grabbed Tenten by her right arm. Naruto walked over to Sakura and grabbed her by the arms and lifted her up to her feet.
Sakura's nose was pretty bloody, as she took quick breaths. Naruto grabbed a napkin that was on the table and whipped the blood off her face. Tenten on the other hand kept wiggling about trying to get back at Sakura, but Sasuke wasn't going to let her go anywhere. Once finished, Naruto threw the napkin back onto the table, while Sakura threw herself at him wrapping her arms around his mid-section and placed her head on his right shoulder. This caught him by surprise in which he wrapped his arms around her too. He looked at her and then at Tenten, "What happened?" He asked.
"I'll answer that for you." Ino said, as she walked in between everyone. "Well, when you two were gone, we were just talking with each other and Tenten said… something that made Sakura angry. And when she did, Sakura got through me and attacked Tenten… and then they just carried on."
Naruto looked at Sakura, in which she pulled her head away from his shoulder, "Sakura… this isn't you. Why would you attack her?"
Sakura pushed herself off of him and glared at Tenten, "Because she kept saying how she was going to win you over me."
Naruto looked back and forth between the two, "Yeah, because he doesn't like you like that anymore, get over it!" Tenten yelled.
Sakura was just about to launch herself at her again, but luckily Naruto saw it coming and wrapped his arms around her waist, "Look, you two need to calm down, there's no reason to fight. But Sakura, why do you keep trying? You know how I feel."
Sakura turned herself around to face him, "Oh, so you still see me as a friend? Even after everything I've tried to do to get you back?" She asked.
Everyone gasped with their eyes widened. Naruto's head was turned to the side with a huge red mark on his left cheek. His eyes were soft with a look that showed that he knew that this was coming and that he deserved it. Sakura had a rather frustrated look on her face, as she withdrew her hand back to her side, "I know you don't trust me and that was the reason why you broke up with me. So… just leave me alone, don't ever talk to me again." She then walked past him and headed over to whoever knows where she would whined up.
Sasuke let go of Tenten, in which she went over to Naruto and cupped his cheek. She turned his head back to face her, "Are you all right?" She asked.
Naruto turned around seeing Sakura walk off, "I need to talk to her." He said, as he grabbed Tenten's hand and removed it off of his face. He ran after her leaving the three behind. It didn't take long for him to eventually catch up to Sakura in which he spotted her leaning over a railing and looking down at the people walking around the bottom floor. He started to slow down, as he walked over to her. Sakura knew that he was coming over to her, as she kept her attention to the people below. Naruto then joined in and stood next to her, as he also looked down at the people below.
"Why did you come after me? And I thought I told you not to talk to me anymore?" She asked.
"Did you come here to just tell me the same thing like you've been doing?"
"No… I just came to check on you."
She leaned back up and turned to face him, as he did the same thing and faced her, "Check on me? You mean that you came to see what I was doing, so that you could go back to the others?"
"No… I was worried."
"Worried? I thought that I was just a friend?"
"Sakura… please… why can't you…"
"You want to know why I can't get over it? Naruto… I've known you for so long, and with all those years we've spent together I felt more feelings for you. We were always there for each other. Then when you and I were together, I was so happy to be with you. I always wished we would remain like that forever. I loved you so much because of how you would always be there for me and comfort me when needed. But… when it came to this… when you told me you wanted to break up… my heart felt like it was being torn apart."
Naruto's eyes softened feeling bad for what he's done, "Sakura…"
"But now that I know the reason why you broke up with me, that made me felt even worse. I don't see why you don't trust me. You were the only one that could make me happy. No other man could make me feel like that no matter how hard they tried."
Naruto could see the tears forming in her eyes, which then slowly started to slide down her cheeks, "Sakura…"
"Naruto… my heart was jumping in joy when I found the man that I love. I don't see…"
She gasped to see that he grabbed her by the hips and pulled her close to him. They looked each other in the eyes, as the gap between them was slowly closing, "Now that I see how you really feel, I know that I can trust you." He whispered to her.
She whipped her own tears away and smiled at him, as their lips met. They closed their eyes, as he wrapped his arms around her waist and she threw her arms around his neck. They pulled away slightly from one another, as they rested their forehead against each other's. They smiled at one another keeping an inch apart from them.
Suddenly there was screaming coming from the bottom floor. The two then turned their attention to what was below them to see people running all over the place, "What the hell?" He said.
That wasn't the only thing they were looking at; there was blood in some areas as well, "Blood? What's going on?" He asked.
They instantly turned around hearing banging sound coming from a door that connected to the bottom floor.
They turned to what they were hearing from behind them, which was a man slowly walking over to them. The man was all beaten looking; he had blood almost all over his body. His clothes were also torn up.
"Um… are you okay sir?" Naruto asked.
However, he didn't get an answer, "Sir? Are you…"
Suddenly, the man started charging at them. Naruto was so confused of what was wrong with this guy; he wouldn't say a word or anything. The man then opened his mouth making an attempt to bite him. Naruto then ducked and punched him in the gut. However, that didn't quite workout, as he attempted to bite him again. Naruto easily dodged it, and kicked him in the face, which caused him to fall.
"What's wrong with you? I'm asking you…"
The man got back up to his feet and jumped on Naruto, which caused Naruto to fall to the ground and on his back. Sakura was standing back a bit wondering what was going on, but then she heard banging coming from the same door. Naruto grabbed the man by his arms and bent his legs and placed his feet on the man's stomach. He then shot his legs up, as he threw the man over the railing. Sakura turned back and looked down at the bottom floor to see that the man was lying in blood. Naruto shot himself back up to his feet to see the scene himself. There was more people just lying around in blood, "Sakura…"
"Yes?" She asked.
Suddenly the door slammed open, which they turned to see that more people came running out and after them, "Shit. Sakura, go back and join with the others."
"But… what about you?"
"Just go, I'm going to stall sometime for you to get back to them."
Naruto charged after the people before they got to them, as Sakura obeyed him and ran back to where the others were.
He looked to the side to see that she was out of sight, and looked back over at the people, "I don't know what's wrong with you all, but I can't allow you to hurt anyone." One of the people jumped at Naruto, but he easily took a step to the side and kicked them in the back, causing it to fall over the railing. The group of people then surrounded him, as he looked at each and every one of them. They all opened their mouths with drool dripping down out of it, which then they all ran after Naruto. Right when they were closing in, Naruto ducked and spun kick them at their legs, which caused them all to fall down. He quickly grabbed two of them by the neck and threw them over the railing. He turned around, but was sent over the railing by one of them, in which that one also fell over. Luckily, Naruto grabbed onto the railing with his left hand hanging on for his life. He then brought his right hand up to grab onto it and rose himself back up and over the railing. When he got back up, he realized that they were gone, but then he heard screaming coming from the same door where they came from. He was seeing a woman getting chewed at from them. There were four of them on her; two of them were ripping chunks of her skin off from her legs, while the other two were ripping her stomach open to reveal her intestines. Naruto's eyes widened, as he placed his hands on his stomach. He was feeling uneasy seeing what was going on right in front of him.
"What… the hell… is going on?" He asked himself.
He looked back at where they were to realize that there was hardly anything left of the woman. The four that were eating her up were now covered in blood. They looked over at Naruto with killer instincts in their eyes. However, Naruto was looking at them and saw that they had no pupils.
"Wait a second… this is familiar… No sign of living in them… no pupils, no response from them, all they do is eat people… oh no. We're dealing with the dead here." He said to himself.
Suddenly, from behind those four he could see more coming up, "Oh shit." He said, as they all came out from the door and after him.
Naruto looked around trying to find anything that could be of some use to him. Sadly, there was nothing around him. He looked back at the living dead as they were closing in on him. There was just too many of them, without a weapon or anything he couldn't handle them all. He grabbed one of them by the arm and spun around causing it to hit all the others, which caused them to get pushed back. He then threw it over the railing and waited for the others to come at him. Shortly, he felt a pair of hands grabbing his arm. He turned around to see one of the dead holding his arm out getting ready to bite into him, but he easily yanked his arm free and elbowed it in the face. He then grabbed it by the arm with both his hands and spun himself and let go of it, which caused it to launch at the others. However, Naruto then realized that one came from behind him. He turned around to see a lot more coming around the railing.
"Shit, this isn't good." He said, but turned around to see that the others were just standing there. He turned around again to see the ones coming from behind him had stopped as well. Shortly, all their heads slid off from their body and fell to the ground.
"What the hell?"
"Are you all right?"
He turned back around to see the same women from earlier, "Hey you're…"
Their chat didn't last long, as more of the dead came out from the door and after them. They both saw them coming, "No time, come with me." She said, as she grabbed his hand and ran from them.
"What's taking them so long?" Ino asked.
"I don't know, but I hope she doesn't come back." Tenten said.
"Tenten… you've got to stop that nonsense." Sasuke replied.
She looked at Sasuke with a serious expression, "Don't tell me what to do, I despise her, so of course you're going to hear me act like this."
"Maybe you should just get over it and stop acting like a bitch." He replied.
Ino was ignoring the two and saw Sakura running at them, "Sakura!" She yelled.
Sasuke and Tenten stopped and looked at her, "You guys… Naruto…"
"Whoa, whoa, Sakura take a deep breath first." Ino said.
Sakura inhaled a good amount of air and exhaled, "Naruto's in trouble."
"Trouble? What do you mean?" Sasuke asked.
"He's being attacked by a group of people."
"What? Why didn't you help him?" Tenten asked.
"He told me to come back to you all."
"Let's go help him then." Sasuke said, but then where Sakura came from, he saw a group of people coming toward them "Is that them?" He asked.
They turned around to see the same people that he was looking at, "Yeah…" She answered. Suddenly, the group came running at them.
"Well, here they come." Sasuke said.
The girls backed up behind Sasuke. However there were a couple of other people in between them both and that group that Sakura was talking about jumped those two. They started ripping them open and pulling out their intestines and eating them. Sasuke and the others went wide-eyed, "What the fuck!" Sasuke nearly shouted.
However, other people that were in the food court witnessed what was going on and started to scream and panic. They then ran the opposite way from them. Sasuke and the girls turned to see them run away, as Sasuke turned back around to see that the two that were jumped by them were completely gone. Nothing but bones was just lying there.
"Shit, this is not good. This is the living dead." Sasuke said.
"Sasuke! What do we do?" Ino asked.
"We need to get away from here. Come on!" He yelled, as he ran to the people that were panicking along with the girls right by him.
"Where are we going?" Naruto asked.
"To higher ground." The women answered.
They stopped and looked around to look for anything that leads to the third floor. Naruto looked to his right and about a few yards away from him he saw a double door with the stair symbol on the wall next to it, "Over there." He said, and pointed at the door.
She turned to also see the door that lead to upstairs, "Let's go then." She said, as they both ran to it.
Once they reached the door, a large group of the dead was coming toward them. Naruto saw them coming, but the girl was already going up the stairs. He looked around and saw a fire extinguisher. He grabbed it and went in the door quickly. He shut both of them and placed the extinguisher in the handles to prevent them to open it. He ran up the stairs and shortly caught up to her, "Took you long enough." She said.
"Don't worry, they won't be coming after us." He said.
"Oh? And why's that?"
"I secured the doors."
"I see." She then turned to the door and opened it. They were now on the third floor, which was a theater only floor.
They walked out the door, as Naruto closed it back up once they were out, "Okay, it looks like we'll be safe here." She said.
"Hopefully, since the theater is closed today we should be safe here." He replied.
Naruto then freely dropped and laid on the ground, "What's your name anyway?" He asked.
She looked down at him, "My name's Mei Terumi."
"Mei… I like that name. My name's Naruto Uzumaki." He said.
Mei looked around to make it sure it was completely safe, in which it was. She then took a deep breath and sat down next to him.
She looked at him once again, "Yes?"
"How old are you?"
Mei's eyebrows rose a bit, "I'm twenty-five."
"Twenty-five! You seem a little younger then that. I'm only nineteen." He said.
Mei blushed slightly hearing him say that she looked younger. She leaned back against her arms to take a little break.
"So… Mei, do you know what happened?"
"No, when I found out, I was in…" She didn't continue thinking that it would make him think dirty.
He leaned up using his elbows to support him, "In what?"
"I was in Victoria's Secret when it happened."
Of course, Naruto blushed a bit and dirty thoughts came through his mind. Unaware of it, Mei knocked him upside the head to knock him out of it.
Naruto fell to his side and leaned back up, while scratching the back of his head, "Sorry."
"Anyway, I was there and when I came out, there was a man that was sitting on his knees. He was covered in blood and coughing badly. But, not long after that he went silent and after that he got on his feet and started attacking everyone. When he kept jumping from one person to another, those people that he had attacked started helping him out. They just kept doing the same thing that he had done."
"I see. So that means it started at the bottom level."
"Yeah, and shortly I found out that their weakness is losing their head or taking a shot to the head. Which is why I got this." She reached over her shoulder and grabbed a handle. Naruto could see a strap that was wrapped around her body diagonally. She pulled it out and held out in front of her a katana, "Since I'm a master at swordsmanship, I figured that this is all I would need." She then sheathed it back into its case.
Naruto took a large gulp and knew it would be bad to be on her bad side, "I… see."
"So, what do you do?" She asked.
"Well, I recently just graduated from high school and was going to the United States of America for college."
Mei's eyes widened, "The U.S.? That's awfully a long way, but they do have good schools there."
"Yeah, I was looking forward to it too… but now… I don't know if that'll happen." His eyes softened and looked at the ground.
Mei looked at him and felt bad that his dream of going to the U.S. was ruined, "So… what should we do now?" He asked, as he looked back at her.
"I think it would be best to stay here in the meantime."
"I see… I just hope my friends are okay."
"We need to get to high ground!" Sasuke yelled.
"The theater! Since it's closed today, there shouldn't be anyone there." Ino said.
"All right, we just have to get to the…" Sasuke stopped what he was saying, as him and the girls came to a halt. There was a massive crowd trying to go through the double door that led to the theater.
"There's no way we can get there with all these people rushing in all at once." Sakura said.
"Then we'll just have to force our way through. Come on!" Sasuke said, as him and the girls ran to the crowd. Once they got there, Sasuke started shoving people aside trying to make a path for the girls to go through. He then started grabbing people by their shoulders and tossed them back behind them. Once he saw a small gap, he forced himself through it in which he was now at the stairway. He turned around to see the girls coming, "Hurry up!" He called out. He held out his hand, while Sakura was the first to grab it, which he instantly pulled her through the rest of the crowd and got her in. He then again held out his hand, while Ino was the next to grab it, in which he pulled her in as well. He then did it once more for Tenten to grab a hold of, in which she did. He pulled her in, but then a guy grabbed her by the leg.
"Get out of the way you damn kids!" He yelled.
"Let go of her leg you prick!" Sasuke yelled.
However, he didn't listen to him and kept pulling on her leg. Sasuke was getting annoyed at this, as his free hand reached to the back of his pocket. He pulled out a USP 45 from his pocket and brought it in front of him. He then pointed it right at the man's head. The girls went wide-eyed totally unaware that Sasuke would be carrying around a gun, "How about you let go of her or I'll just simply pull this trigger."
The man started to tremble and let go of Tenten's leg, as she was then pulled in with the others. Suddenly people that were trying to rush through the door were getting pulled back. Sasuke's eyes widened seeing that the dead were the ones pulling them back. He instantly shut the door and looked around for something to tightly keep them closed. Just right next to him against the corner was the janitor's materials. He grabbed the broom and mop out of it and slid them both through the handles of the doors.
"Get upstairs!" Sasuke yelled. He didn't have to say anything since the girls were already running up the stairs before he even said it. Before he went up, he grabbed a flashlight that was with the janitor's materials and then worked his way upstairs.
Mei stretched out her arms and let out a yawn. She then leaned down to her side laying her head on Naruto's chest, which he was already asleep. However, she didn't remain like that for long since there was a sound coming from the doors. She leaned back up and looked at the doors that were on her left and didn't hear anything from that side. She then turned to face the ones on her right and heard footsteps coming from it.
"Naruto, get up." She said, as she patted his chest. Slowly his eyes opened and saw Mei standing next to him. He leaned up and started to hear noises coming from the doors on his right. He instantly jumped up to his feet waiting for what was on the other side of it. However, the noises coming from it went silent.
Naruto tilted his head a bit and walked over to the doors, "Naruto! What are you doing?" Mei yelled in a whispering way.
"Just wait here, I'm going to check it out." He walked over to the door. Once he was standing in front of it, he placed his ear against it and heard nothing.
He shrugged his shoulders and turned his back to the door and looked at Mei, "Looks like there's…"
The door slammed opened, while Naruto turned around, but was instantly hit in the head, which made his vision blackout.
"Naruto!" Mei yelled.
45 minutes later
"I still can't believe you did that."
Naruto's eyes slowly opened, but his vision was blurry. He could hear the voices around him and saw a few figures nearby, but couldn't quite make out whom they were.
"He's awake." A feminine voice was what he just heard.
Soon enough, he got the strength he needed and leaned up using his elbows as support. He shook his head lightly, as his vision was starting to come back to him. There were five people around him with all eyes on him.
He realized that four of the people around him were Ino, Sasuke, Sakura, and Tenten, "You guys are all right!" He nearly yelled.
"Yeah, about earlier bro, I didn't think you would be up here and I kind of got out of hand." Sasuke said.
"It's all right, I'm just glad to see you all."
Sakura threw her arms around his neck and buried her head against his shoulder, "I was so worried." She said, as tears escaped her eyes and went down her cheeks, which then slid down to his shirt.
"It's okay Sakura."
She then pulled herself away from him and looked at him, "I thought that they were going to get you when you told me to leave."
Naruto chuckled slightly, "There's no way I would let those things get their hands on me."
Mei grinned at him, as she got back up to her feet, but then all eyes except for Naruto were on her, "So, who's this?" Ino asked, as her and the others also got back on their feet.
Naruto decided to join them and got back on his feet as well, "This is Mei Terumi. She saved my life earlier and brought us here." He answered.
Sasuke let out a sigh knowing that things would get worse for Naruto, "She saved your life? And how could she have done so?" Tenten asked.
Mei's eyes twitched slightly, "She's a master in swordsmanship and she easily took out a lot of them that I could barely manage against."
"Oh…" Was all Tenten could say.
"Anyway, was there anyone else still alive out there?" Naruto asked.
Sasuke shook his head, "When we came here, there was a massive amount of people trying to get up here. But, sadly they got them."
Naruto bowed his head, "I see…" He then pulled out his phone from his pocket and realized that he had no signal, "Damn."
"What are we going to do?" Ino asked.
Everyone went silent and started to think of another place to go, "Wait a second…" Everyone looked over at Naruto, "We need to find a way to get a hold of the police."
"Okay, first of all, how can we tell if they're even alive or not? You know how in movies like this that police and everyone… well almost everyone are already dead." Sasuke said.
Naruto let out a sigh in defeat, "Yeah that's true. Well… all I can think of that this place is our safe place for now. But, we need to see if there's any survivors out there."
"So what you're saying is that you want to go out there where all those living dead are and search for any survivors?" Ino asked.
Naruto nodded, "If we do, we can bring them back here where it's safe."
"Okay, I see. But, who's going out there then?" Sakura asked.
Naruto let out a sigh, "I will."
Everyone except for Mei gasped, "But… you…"
"Don't worry, I'll go with him." Everyone looked at Mei. "I'll protect him." She looked at him and gave him a wink.
"Are you two absolutely sure about this?" Sasuke asked.
"Yeah, I mean… we can't just leave others out there to die."
"All right then."
Naruto and Mei walked to the doors that were on the right. He looked back at the others with a serious expression, "Don't worry, we'll be back with more people." After that, he opened the door, as they walked out and closed the door behind them.
"Mei…" She turned around to face him.
"What is it?"
"Are you sure you want to come with me?"
She gave him a look that said, "I'm not going to back down now" in a serious matter. "Yeah I'm sure, I want to save others too you know?"
He smiled at her, "All right then." He ran down the stairs leaving her a bit behind. She then followed him, but shortly they were now in front of the door that would lead to the second floor, "Are you ready?" He asked.
Mei nodded, as he removed the broom and mop that Sasuke had placed. Then, he kicked the doors opened.
A/N: Okay, I'm surprised I got this chapter done today. I just started working on this around lunchtime and found myself hooked onto it and got it done this quick. Anyway, I know I said that depending on the votes I would write it sooner or not. But, just over thinking about the zombie apocalypse one was getting me interested in writing it ASAP. Anyway, I'm sorry to the ones that wanted to see the high school one first, but the zombie one was sounding pretty cool. But enough talk, I want to hear from you all.
What did you think of the first chapter?
Note: This chapter will mainly be a NarutoXMei later on.
