Prologue

(Konoha October 13)

Konoha, the village hidden in the leafs, located in the Fire Country, the biggest of all the elemental nations. Responsible for producing some of the most powerful and famous shinobi in history was having one of its worst days in all its history. That was because today it was been attack by the Kyuubi no Youko, the most powerful of all bijjus (A/N: not sure if that's how you spell it, correct me if I'm wrong), capable of leveling mountains and splitting oceans with one swipe of its tails.

"HOLD YOUR GROUND!" shouted a random jounin while dodging one of the beat's tails.

"We got to keep it out of Konoha until the Yondaime arrives!" shouted the former sandaime while launching a barrage of shurikens at the beast.

(At the Hokage Tower)

The Yondaime Hokage, Minato Namikaze, is pacing back and forth. His normally cheerful blue eyes were now full of worry and desperation, his already messy blond hair was even messier do to all the stress he'd been through lately. His long white coat was all ragged up and if you looked closely, you would notice the bags under his eyes. There in his office standing with him were the legendary Toad Sannin Jiraiya leaning on the wall with his eyes closed

"Are you sure this is the only way, kid?" asked the white haired sannin while opening his eyes.

"Yes, I've been sure about this since we found out the Kyuubi was headed this way."

"Ok, but using that jutsu?" Jiraiya asked

"Sorry old man, but I have to do this. It's for the village's survival and future."

At that moment a girl around 14, with silver, pointy hair that seems to defy gravity, wearing a face mask that covers the lower half of her face and her leaf hitai-ateover her left eye. "Sensei! The Kyuubi! The Kyuubi is almost at the village's walls!"

the Yondaime nods at his student then looks at Jiraiya then asks " sensei can you give these letters to hiruzen it's from me and kushina tell him I said to give these two to my son when he's 14 years old and the other one is for just in case something bad happens to him I have a feeling that the village well not see him as a hero like I want him to be seen as" minato looks down frowning then said "in the last one is a dimensional jutsu that I found in a scroll that was in the scroll of sealing" then hands him the letters then all three shunshin to the battlefield.

(At the top of the Village's Gates)

"It's time." The Yondaime jumps and lands outside, in front of the village's gates and starts going through handsigns after setting the baby in a crib. "Kuchiyose No Jutsu" With that he slams his left hand on the floor and a large cloud of smoke appears in front of him. When the smokes dissipates, in its place stands a giant toad, with a greyish blue, open robe, a giant pipe in its mouth, a scar over his left eye and a knife on his right side.

"Why have you summoned me, Minato?"

"As you can see, Chief, we are under attack from the Kyuubi, and I need you to take me and my son to it and then I need you to hold it off until I can get everything ready for the sealing." pleaded the Hokage.

'Hum, The Kyuubi attacking mere humans that a rare sight, indeed. Why would it be doing that? Well now's not the time to be think about it.' "Alright, let's go, Minato!"

"Thanks, Chief." So the Yondaime grabs the crib and jumps to the top of Gamabunta's head. Gamabunta then starts jumping towards the Kyuubi

(At the Battlefield)

The Kyuubi keeps its advances until Gamabunta jumps in front of it. "It's the Yondaime!" shouted a jounin, "The Yondaime here!" shouted a kunoichi, and "We're saved!" stated a chunin.

"Guess this is it."

"You're right, chief, it's time to end this."

"Minato...It was honor fighting alongside you."

"Same here, Chief, same here." With that the Yondaime give the toad one of his grins, grabs the crib and jumps down his head. 'Kid, you're the only person I know that would smile at the face of his own death, that's one of the reasons that made you so special.' The Chief then goes and engages the Kyuubi. The Yondaime seen this starts preparing for the sealing.

"Son, I'm sorry for what I am about to do to you..." he then starts going through handsigns,"...I'm sorry that I won't be able to watch you grow..." he tries to hold back the tears that are threating to fall, "...and I'm sorry I'll never be there for you when you need me..." tears now falling freely from his eyes,"...but I always want you to remember that I loved you really much and no matter what I'll always love you and you mean the world to me, son..."

"I don't know if I'll be able to hold it much longer! Minato, if you're going to do anything, you better do it KNOW!"

"Farewell, son. I'm sure you'll grow one day to surpass Me." he then grins at his son, "make me proud." he ends at a ram seal, "Fuuinjutsu: Shiki Fuujin!"

When those words escaped the Hokage's mouth a blinding light engulphs the battlefield then silent.

When the light started to die down, the only one left standing is the Chief Toad, Gamabunta.

'You did it kid, you defeated the Kyuubi, but at what price?' he then looks directly at the baby, 'I hope I could stay a little longer to see how things turn out, but with my chakra almost depleted, that won't be possible.' with those words said, the Chief dessapiers in a puff of smoke.

(Later at the Hogake's office)

Jiraiya lands in the window behind the Hokage's desk, there he find his sensei Sarutobi sitting behind it with his pipe in his mouth, a crib next to him and a blond baby laying inside it.

"So, is that him?" the white hair sannin asks while glancing at the baby.

"Yes, that's him. That's Minato's son. His final word before he died were, that he wished for his son to be seen as a hero, but seeing as the wound from the Kyuubi attack is still fresh, I highly doubt that. I'm sure that they would use him as a scapegoat to all the sorrow rather that seen him as a hero." declared the old leader.

"As much that I hate to admit it, I think you are right Sarutobi-sensei. Anyway, does he have a name?"

"Minato said his name is Naruto."

"Naruto?" question Jiraiya.

"Hehe, leave it to Minato to name his son after a ramen topping." stated the Sandaime.

"Actually, now that I think about it, his name comes from the main character from the book I wrote before I started the Icha Icha series and it means maelstrom not fishcake. I remember Kushina and Minato mentioned to me once, about using that name for him, never thought they were really going to do it."

Then the doors fly open and Kakashi bursts through them. "Sensei, you did it! You defeated the..." She looks around looking for her sensei, with no luck. "Where's sensei?" she sees the expression of sadness in everyone's eyes and her only visible eye widen when she comprehends the reason. "No... It's not possible..."

Before the silver haired jounin could continue, she is interrupted by Naruto, who starts crying. Hiruzen got up, so he walks up to the crib, takes Naruto out of it and starts rocking him in his arms. "It's ok, don't cry. Everything will be fine, don't worry." he reassures him in a grandfatherly tone while waving his finger in front of him. Naruto, then stops crying and stares at the elderly man with his big, blue eyes, which were one of the characteristics that most contributed to his father fan girls' club. He then grabs his finger and smiles, which is supposed to be impossible for a baby that young. He then started to giggle the Hiruzen told him. "I'll always take care of you, Naruto." his voice soft and, filled with a warmth like if he was all he had left in the world. Then he looks down with a frown.

'I hate to think what the Council would do to him.' not wanting to disrupt what was happening, the old leader decided to keep his toughs to himself.

Without speaking a word, everyone just decided to watch in state of awe the scene desenvolving in front of them. Hoping that, if even for one second, they could forget all the sadness and suffering they just when through.

Then Jiraiya remembered what his student ask of him and handed the sandaime the letters hiruzen looked confused then Jiraiya said "minato wanted me to give you these and said that these two are from him and kushina he said to give these to him when he's 14 years old and this one is for when if something happens to him you have to read it".

Then the sandaime looks at the third letter then puts inside his sleeve for safe keepings because he can't trust to leave it in his office because he suspects that if he did someone can use this for their own case but now wasn't the time for that because he has to think about what to do with the village and if he should say anything about Naruto's burden or not then came to an answer that he would but not his parents for fear of assassination attempts from the child's parents enemies he told the two that were there that they were not to speak of what happened on this night to anybody knowing right now of course they wanted to protest but didn't because what he said was true.

Now they have to see what happens in the years to come.
