Prologue

Naruto wondered around training grounds no. 44. It was one of the only places where he was safe from the villagers' scorn. Naruto found the forest to be refreshing and relaxing despite the nearly constant attacks. There's no real hatred in a forest, just the primal instinct of survival of the fittest.

Naruto traveled through the forest with slight ease, skillfully maneuvering around harmful animals and plants. He had just gotten out of the academy for the day and didn't particularly feel like dealing with unexplained hatred.

As he traveled deeper into the forest, making sure to avoid the tower in the middle, Naruto began to get lost in his thoughts.

He had recently asked Hokage-jiji-sama if he knew who his parents were. But as usual the old Hokage merely changed the subject never really answering him. It was slightly frustrating for Naruto to always have that particular question dodged again and again.

Discouraged by that question not being answered Naruto didn't feel the need to ask why the villagers hated him so.

So lost in his upsetting thoughts, Naruto failed to notice the slightly covered whole in the ground. Letting out a surprised yelp, Naruto quickly slid down a slanting and smooth tunnel.

'What the hell is this?' Naruto thought as he continued to slide.

Finally after fifteen minutes of sliding down the sloping and curling tunnel, Naruto arrived at the bottom into an underground cavern.

"Oh great, now I'm going to be stuck here for who knows how long." Naruto muttered to himself as he got up and dusted himself off.

Naruto took in his surroundings finding that the cave he was in was medium sized with five tunnels branching off from it, two on his left and right sides and one straight ahead.

Making a quick decision Naruto began to explore his new find.

Twelve hours later

During the past twelve hours Naruto was able to cover most of the underground cave system. He traveled countless tunnels; some leading back to the original cave he found, others leading to different places above ground, and still some leading to beautiful underground water sources. (i.e. Lakes, rivers, hot springs, etc.).

Naruto had made a decision to map the place out after the first time he was led back to the original cavern. With a slightly jagged stone he drew arrows on the wall that told where each tunnel led.

Sighing lightly Naruto rested in one of the caves with a lake in it. He was debating if he should continue to explore or if he should go back home.

"Well what's one more tunnel going to hurt?" Naruto asked himself as he got up from his spot at the edge of the lake.

Looking at his choices Naruto hummed thoughtfully to himself. There were three tunnels leading out of here, if you don't count the one he came from. The left most tunnel he already traveled and he knew that it led to a series of room like caves that had no other tunnels and that if you continued straight, or as straight as the tunnel would allow you, you would end up back in the original cave.

So he mentally crossed that route off of the list in his mind. That only left him with the middle most tunnel and the right most tunnel.

Shrugging to himself Naruto turned to the right one and began his trek.

After about five minutes of traveling down that tunnel Naruto noticed that the path way was sloping down, going further into the earth.

"I should have chosen the other path, this one has no branching tunnels." the blond muttered to himself irritably.

Finally after twelve minutes of following this sloping tunnel Naruto entered a large cavern. It was covered in glowing moss and there was a strange large egg looking thing nestled neatly against the far wall.

Curiosity peeked, Naruto walked over to the strange egg, it was a deep moldy green color with a weird top to it.

Once he was close enough Naruto bent over and poked it. He grimaced slightly as his finger came back covered in slim.

Snorting in disgust, Naruto stepped away from the large slimy egg. He turned away from it looking at the other tunnels, there was three to the right of him and four to the left. Then there was the one he came from, Naruto silently contemplated which way to go.

He jumped as a squelching whoosh-like sound came from behind him. He turned to see a weird spider like thing scurrying quickly towards him.

Taking a surprised step back, Naruto's face morphed into a look of dread as he tripped over a rock. He watched in absolute horror as the spider thing leaped at him and clamped onto his face tightly, feeling it's long spine like tail wrapped around his throat choking him.

The last thing Naruto felt before darkness claimed him was something large and slimy being forced down his throat.

A/N Oh noz, Naruto was attacked by an alien! Will he survive? Does this mark the end of the elemental continents? Well I guess you'll just have to review and wait for the next chapter to find out!;3

Please review.
