Author's note: Before we begin my 2nd fanfic...yes this is my 2nd fanfic :P anyway..there are a few things you guys should know before you read the story...I have nullified the effects of the mangekyou sharingan meaning...Sasuke doesn't lose his sight...but only experiences intense amounts of pain after using his mangekyou..the vision deteriortiates only after 2 years each only in this fanfic...This takes place after Sasuke's and Naruto's clash at the bridge where Sasuke kills Danzo..as for pairings..this time around...don't bet on it...i made a subtle pairing in my first fanfic only because many reviewers requested it..as time goes on we'll see...but mostly no...this is gonna be a Sasuke centric fic and also Sasuke's susano'o is complete in this fic..as seen in Naruto shippuden 220...multiple crossovers at random points...this is a custom universe..so anyway enough of my ranting LET THE STORY BEGIN!


Prologue: Silence...

Xavier mansion fields...

A lone figure layed on the branch of a tree...gazing into the vastness of the skies..his eyes tired from his thoughts..peace did not become him..he was thrust into this world by an unknown force..why he ended up here,he did not know..his ambition lost to the sands of the mysterious plane known as the universe...he had nothing to live for..as he gazed into the sky,his brother's smile emitted from it..he gritted his teeth in frustration and annoyance..this was not where he should be..this was not what he should be doing..and yet here he was..stuck in this accursed mansion...he did not want the kindness of the man that had offered him his..."home" as he called it...but he had a debt he had to repay to him...he wouldn't leave unless he did repay it..it was a new purpose..his lost soul re-acquainted with another longing to fulfill it..after failing to his previous goal..his ambiton of revival lost...he had nothing to live for...except this...

A man in a wheelchair rolled up to where he lay...concentration in his eyes yet smiling with kindness...Sasuke Uchiha had hated the man's smile...it reminded him too much of the blond idiot who had proclaimed himself to be his "bestfriend"...

"Enjoying yourself,Sasuke?" questioned Professor Xavier as he came to a halt below the tree where Sasuke lay...

His only question was answered by silence...Xavier sighed...he had been like this since the day he arrived..when Orroro Munroe offered him food...he hunger got the better of him as he then accpeted...Orroro had said that he was a boy who carried too much nof a burden for a child his age..Logan had agreed...recalling how he was used in the weapon-X program...he did not interact with any other people...he would either stay in the fields of the mansion...or would come in for something to eat...another of his activities including slicing olden tree barks with his chidori blade..refining his skills...Logan had smirked at this and said that his style was reckless and a little "tune up" was required...Sasuke had just grunted in response...the only time he would speak was if the professor needed something...when Scott had arrived..he had tried to befriend the crazed avenger with a simple handshake...Sasuke had looked at his hand and then moved past him...Ororo had told Scott to give him some time...Logan had told him that he was like that with everybody except the professor...the next was Jean Grey..the telepath..she had tried as well...pestering him to atleast say a word...he had coldly stated to her to stay away from him...she was hurt and shocked...despite the statement...he grew accustomed to her advances for friendship...even going as far to help her during a little trouble with her parents when they had stated that the "mutant powers" were a curse...he had abruptly replied what was on Xavier's mind...it was not a curse..but a gift...it was the way she used it that would define if it were a curse...or a gift...burdened by vengence he spent majority of his days brooding...

"We're growing Sasuke" came another statement from Xavier..Sasuke just turned his gaze towards him..

"I know how you feel Sasuke...but i believe this was a second chance for you...everyone deserves it..a chance for peace..a chance for a new life...a chance for love..."

Sasuke just exhaled his breath slowly..."You do realise i read your mind eveytime you are to your own thoughts?"

Sasuke then sat up slowly and looked at him "I know" he said...

"You should let it go Sasuke...get to know some of the other students...they would love to get to know you...you have indeed helped them when we were showing them that their powers are a gift and not a curse...some admire you..others look up to you and still others throw their jealous gazes of you..Scott and Jean continually ask for you...each day after they return from school...the first thing they do is to search for you..yet you hide away in the darkness away from the light of their friendship"

Sasuke jumped down from the branch of the tree "They shouldn't..." as he turned to leave..Xavier sighed again...

"Sasuke you don't owe me anything...you can stop thinking about how to repay me after we treated your injuries..you were hurt..that was the right thing to do..to heal you..and to give you a palce to stay..this world is new and confusing...yes..but you owe us nothing"

Sasuke stopped and looked back at the man in the wheelchair...his coal black eyes gazing at his form.."I owe it to you...and i will repay it even if my life is what it costs Xavier..."

Xavier just looked on Sasuke's retreating form..Ororro came up behind him and placed a comforting hand on Xavier's shoulder...Xavier just sighed...

"He's growing further away Orroro..he's dead in spirit...his eyes show nothing..when he first came here i saw great hate in him...but now...lifeless" stated professor Xavier...

"I am concerned as well Charles...but he has been growing a little closer to Scott and even...Logan...Logan spars with him showing him his flaws...even though Sasuke is greater in skill..Logan has exceeeded him in experience...when he saw Scott and Jean coming back from the school...he saw that boy Duncan i believe along with his teammates picking on Scott..Jean tried to break the fight up...but proved futile...I had sent Sasuke to buy the groceries from the supermarket..so that he could get a look at the outside world...he had appeared infront of the group of attackers and had mashed their skulls to the pavement...Scott and Jean had pleaded him to stop...he did" narrated Orroro while watching Sasuke's retreating form...

"I do not know Orroro..when i had read his memories the only longing he had was to see the blood of a boy the same age as he..his name was known as Naruto...Sasuke's lust for vengence had drived him to the edge before he appeared here...his brother was the definiton of a self sacrificing hero but Sasuke...seeks to destroy all that his brother had wrought..all that he had fought for..his hatred consumed him..." mused Xavier...

"And that is why we will help him...pester him..push him to a breaking point where he will...give up his lifeless form and renew himself with this chance for redemption..." said Orroro smiling at the professor..Xavier smiled "I hope and pray we do"

Sasuke walked on to his traininig field...Logan had told him that he left his guard open during his third consecutive attack and that even an amateur could exploit it..he had lied of course..so that Sasuke would open up a little more...he did...he had grown in skill and had also practiced his lightning manipulation creating even more different elemental manipulation of the chidori...but it was not enough...he had even perfected the amaterasu..timing the attack at the exact time before the blood could even bleed from his right eye...he walked on to a bunch of stumps Logan had kept for him...he had kept a machine that would shoot the stumps into the air..and had asked Sasuke to slice it using the blade into four divisions...Sasuke found it a bit diffiult at first but quickly adpated to it..he could now slice anything with his eyes closed...he stopped on hearing the laughter of the other two people occupying the mansion..he ignored it as they came out of the mansion...he then pressed the machine..checking it teh speed could be increased...the activation of the machine had caused a rumbling noise...which he ignored but it was not ignored by the other two people...they saw him and waved

"Sasuke!"

He ignored them as they moved to him...eight stumps flew into the air...he then jumped closing his eyes...remmebering what Logan had told him to do...the sound of slices were heard...the other two looked on..it was a daily occurence seeing Sasuke do this...he then landed on the toes of his feet silently and placed his katanna back in it's holder as he did that...thirty two pieces of sliced stumps fell down neatly in a row...he then turned to move to a tree...

"Showoff" muttered Scott...Jean elbowed him in the rib..."Hey! ow!"...Sasuke once again ignored them as he moved...Jean ran up to him...catching his shoulder...

"Listen Sasuke...don't act like a loner...come on..Scott wanted to get some pizza...come with us"

Sasuke quickly shrugged her hand off his shoulder...and walked on...Jean then used her telekenisis to stop him...his hardened eyes turned to look at her...she smirked...Scott started chuckling...he knew Jean would do this one day or the other..frankly Sasuke had it coming...Sasuke momentarily decided to cast a genjutsu on her and move on..but he thought against it but he thought against it and gave her a chance to say what she wanted to say...

"Listen you either come with us...or i drag you with us with my power..."said Jean in a serious tone... "Better do as she says man! she's like sher khan when she's serious..."said Scott with amusement in his voice...

Jean turned her head to look at Scott annoyance etched in her face...Scott gulped..."I'll just be quiet now..."

"So Sasuke..."before she could complete her question..he was gone...both of their eyes widended as they saw his retreating form laying on a pile of grass a long distance from them..

"How did he..." Jean then recalled about what professsor Xavier had told him about Sasuke being able to place illusions on people...a voice then rang out in both their minds..

"Scott,Jean get Sasuke and come meet me in the mansion..there's someone you need to meet..."

Jean just blew her hair frustration...Scott just chuckled as he moved into the manison..."Well Jean all da best getting mister loner over there to the manison..."...Jean just grew in frustration as she moved to where Sasuke lay...

Sasuke just gazed into the sky again thinking about his brother...Jean came up to him

"Comon Sasuke,proffesor Xavier wanted us to meet someone...don't make me use my powers on you again..." said Jean..Sasuke got up slowly and moved into the mansion...Scott and the professor waited for them in their study...when they reached the study..they saw someone covered in a cloak...a brown cloak...Sasuke just viewed him...


Xavier Mansion

"Ah! good you both are here..." smiled the proffesor...he then turned his gaze towards the msytery stranger..."This is Kurt Wagner...He will be staying at the Institute. Like you all, he is a mutant though his mutation has become more physical in nature," introduced Xavier.

Scott then held out his hand to meet Kurt's "Nice to meet you! my name is Scott" he then pooinetd to Jean "and that's Jean..and that's Sasuke..."

Kurt then moved his hand to meet Scott's..a blue furry hand extended...Scott was a little surprised..Kurt thought it was fear...he quickly withdrew it...Sasuke just viewed on...Jean just looked on and broke the awkward silence..

"So your mutation's physical huh?" smiled the red head...Kurt then turned his hooded cloak towards her "Yes..." he replied...

She then extended her hand...Kurt was hesistant at first..he looked to Xavier for an answer...Xavier just smiled...Kurt then took her hand and shaked it...he then did the same to Sasuke...Sasuke just viewed him with indifference...

Sasuke turned to Xavier ignoring Kurt.."Is this why you called me here? don't waste my time Xavier..." he then moved out of the study room...Kurt looked hurt as he removed his hood...

Jean and Scott just looked on at Kurt..sympathy in their eyes..."Don't bother about him Kurt...he's doesn't trust anybody and he's arrogant with everyone.." smiled Scott...

Jean then continued "He's really a nice guy deep down but he has trouble showing it don't worry i'm sure you'll get to know him better on later..." smiled the red head...

Kurt smiled "Oh"..Xavier just looked on..Sasuke was making progress...this time he actually responded to why Xavier wasted his time with these meetigns...the first time when he met Scott and Jean..he wouldn't even look at them..he smiled a bitter sweet smile "He's on the right track" thought Xavier as he watched the interaction between the students...


Xavier Institute field

Sasuke went back to his pile of grass and lay on it again..this time Ororo came up to him...he sighed in annoyance..these people wouldn't leave him alone...

"Did you meet the new addition Sasuke?" questioned the weather witch...her question was met with silence..Ororo had reminded him alot of his mother Mikoto Uchiha...she was kind and caring,too caring...

"I'll take your silence as a yes then..." she smiled...Sasuke kept his brooding demeanor up..."When your ready come back to the mansion for dinner alright?" and again silence was the answer given to her...

Sasuke then watched as Ororo flew back into the mansion...

"Why do they even care?..."
