Yeah, new story! I'm actually surprised I'm the first one to do this crossover, I was expecting someone to do it before me, but since no one has I took it up myself. Now I know I haven't updated my other stories in a while, but don't worry, I'll get to those soon. The whole reason why I was taking so long was because of writers block and this story was on my mind for the longest time. Anyway, read and enjoy people!
Prologue: The dead and The living
Damn, these things just don't know when to quit! The blond teen thought, as he threw another kunai into the forehead of one of his attacks.
They were slow, sluggish and didn't even hold any weapons of any kind, but they were still deadly. Once they bit you it was over. He'd seen other people turn before, first the fever hit, then when that kills you, ya come back as one of them.
They had many names. Lamebrains, geeks, dead-heads ...but most people called them walkers. They were the undead who feed on the flesh of the living, animal or human, it didn't matter. If you could breathe and had a heart beat, once they found you, you were gonna get eaten if they caught you.
It was as simple as that.
The blond didn't know if he could catch the infection or not, but that wasn't something he was trying to find out. So, he kept on fighting until every last walker was dead ...or deader.
"Man, these things are so annoying, just give up already." He muttered, stepping on the last moving walker's head. It had been a pretty women once, but now it was something else, the right side of her face was completely torn apart, showing nothing but her bloody cheek bone and most of her jaw. Plus, she had bites on her neck and chest.
He felt bad for them, all the people that had died, only to come back and be killed again by some survivor. It was a fate worse then death. Being dead but not being able to rest.
"Naruto, can I come out now?" A small voice whispered from behind one of the wood crates. "Are they all gone?"
Naruto nodded and answered. "Yeah, every things clear, Abigail. It's safe."
A little girl walked out from behind the large wood crate on the right side of the street, near the wall of the store. She was around ten or eleven years old, with long, dark brown hair, tanned skin and wore blue jeans, a pink flower design T-shirt and brown shoes.
If Naruto remembered correctly, she said that she was Hispanic and she spoke more then just English, she also spoke Spanish. He knew some Spanish thanks to being around her and her dad for so long, but there were still some words he had no idea what they meant.
"Are you alright, hermano mayor?" Abigail asked as carefully she walked over the dead bodies of the walkers, towards where Naruto stood. "Did you get hurt at all?"
Naruto looked down as the little girl and grinned. "Nope, I'm just fine, you know it'll take more then a few walkers to hurt me. So you ready to go?"
"Si, but ...uh, where are we going next?"
Naruto thought for a moment, then shrugged. "I have no idea, Abigail. But we can't stay here. The city's not safe anymore." He then lifted the small girl up in his arms and smiled. "But, no matter where we go, I'll protect you. I promise."
"Really, you'll look after me?" She asked in a hopeful tone. "Even though my dad is gone, you'll still be there?"
Naruto nodded. "Yep, you can count on me!"
The sound of a falling trash can distracted the two and Naruto turned around to see another horde of walkers making their way into the back street they had taken, since the main road was too dangerous. The smell of rotting flesh was terrible, and Naruto had a hard time trying to keep down his lunch.
"Abigail, hold on tight. I'm getting us out of here." Naruto said.
Abigail nodded and tighten her grip around his neck, and Naruto crouched down and jumped up onto the roof of the building next to them, then began hopping from roof to roof, towards the outskirts of the city.
Down on the streets, people were running for their lives and the cops were trying to keep every one claim, while at the same time, putting down every walker in site. Car crashes happened almost every few moments. Fires, screams in pain, death, looting. All of that was all that remanded of the big apple. New york city.
It was hard to believe that all of this happened in less then a good two weeks after the infection started. Everyone thought it was a normal virus like the swine-flu or influenza.
If only they knew. Naruto thought, grimly. As he hopped over another crowded street.
In all truth, this wasn't even Naruto's home, this wasn't his world. His home was back in the elemental nations, in Konoha. He ended up in this alternate reality as Kurama, the nine-tailed fox demon, had called it when he fought against Sasuke for the third, and hopefully, last time.
He could still remember the battle, as clear as day.
~ ~(Flashback/one month ago)~ ~
The two kage level shinobi stood on opposites sides of the valley, starring each other down. This was their final battle. The battle that would choose the entire fate of the world as they knew it.
On the left side of the valley, under the statue of Madara Uchiha, was his decedent and the last of the great clan, Sasuke Uchiha. His hatred for Konoha was strong and he was going to do anything to watch it burn, even kill his best friend.
On the right side of the valley, under the statue of Hashirama Senju, stood the third jinchūriki of the Kyuubi no kitsune, Naruto Uzumaki, the last member of the Uzumaki clan and son of the forth Hokage, Minato Namikaze.
How did it come to this? Naruto thought, as he clenched his fists. That was the only thing on his mind besides trying to stay alive in this seemly endless battle. The two had been fighting it out for the past three days and nights, nether of them giving an inch. But, now Naruto was beyond tired, he was low on chakra and he was starting to feel light headed. The damage he'd received from Sasuke was beginning to take a total on his body, and even the nine-tailed fox's healing abilities was beginning to slow down.
But he wasn't the only one, Sasuke was in no better shape then the blond. Cuts and gashes covered him as well, the only difference was that Naruto's wounds would heal after a few minutes, while Sasuke's didn't.
They were at their limit, but they still had enough chakra to do one last jutsu, that would decide who the victor of the battle was.
"Sasuke, it's time to stop this, it's over," Naruto said, desperately trying to convince his, once called, best friend. The one he thought of as a brother. "Tobi and Kabuto are dead. We beat all the Zetsu clones. So why? Why wouldn't you come back?"
"You already know why!" Sasuke said with a twisted grin. "I cut ties that village long ago ...I want to watch it all burn to the ground and hear every last person in that village fear the Uchiha name! I'll erase Konoha from the face of the earth, only then will I have what I truly want ...my revenge!"
"B-but that makes no sense, this isn't what Itachi wanted you to do, he wanted you to protect the leaf, not destroy it! He said that himself!"
"Don't you dare say his name! I'm doing this for Itachi ...him and the rest of my clan," Sasuke snapped. Then he began sheathing his cracked chokutō, Kusanagi no Tsurugi. "I'm done talking, it's time for you to die. Hahaha! And once I'm done with you, Konoha's next."
Naruto sighed and looked down at his feet. There was truly no way of convincing Sasuke to stop his foolishness, he was hell bent on destroying Konoha, his home. And there was no way he was going to let that happen, not while he could still move.
"Naruto, I can give you a little bit more of my chakra, but you need to finish this now." Kurama said from his cage. "He's too far gone, kid. There's no saving him anymore."
I know ...I can see that now, there's only one way to end this. Naruto thought sadly.
"Then you know what you have to do," Kurama said.
Naruto nodded, he had no chose, in order to protect the Konoha and his friends, he had to kill Sasuke. It wasn't something he wanted to do, but for the sake of everyone, it had to be done. "Yeah, I know what to do."
"Good, then you'd better do it now, my chakra won't last forever."
With that being said, Naruto felt the demon fox's chakra begin to circulate through his body. Then he transformed into his Kyūbi Chakura Mōdo(Nine-tails chakra mode)form. Most of his wounds healed and unlike when he first used the fox's chakra, he gained a chakra shroud that resembles the Rokudo sennie's silhouette, his eyes, rather then being blood red was orange and the shroud was yellow and it's chakra was flickering like yellow flames.
"It's time to end this, Sasuke. Once and for all." He said, holding out his hand. Two yellow chakra arms came from his chakra shroud and began to form a rasengan in his right hand.
"For once, dobe, I agree." Sasuke said with a evil smirk, activating his eternal mangekyō sharingan. "I can't wait to watch you die, I won't let you live like the last time." He did a few hand-signs and gripped his left wrist, forming a chidori, it was filled with so much hate and anger that it turned pitch black.
They both starred at each other, not saying a word. The only sound that could be heard was the sound of the water fall that was between them. Madara and Hashirama fought to the death once, their battle was what made the scar in the earth which was now called the valley of the end, and it seemed, that now, history was about to repeat it self.
A moment pasted by, then the two ninja's jump across the water, both of their strongest attacks in hand. They got closer and closer, Naruto shot his hand forward and Sasuke did the same.
The two jutsu's clashed in the very center of the water fall, just as they had years before. Nether of them gave an inch, both Sasuke and Naruto pushed more and more chakra into the jutsu. Then a black and white ball began to form around the two until it covered them completely. The power the shinobi's pushed out was enormous, it was so strong that their attacks began to break the fabric of time and space it self. That had already been weakened from there first fight in the valley.
"I'm not going to lose to you, Sasuke!" Naruto shouted, pushing the last bit of chakra into the jutsu, making the rasengan even stronger. "I'll protect everyone, no matter what!"
"We'll see about that, dobe!" Sasuke shouted back, pumping his chidori with more chakra. "The village in going to burn and there's nothing you can do to stop it! Narutooo!"
They gave it their all, every last once of chakra they had and even, unknowing, some of their own life force. Then something happened …the black and white ball of pure energy-.
~ ~(Flashback end)~ ~
After that, he woke up in a hospital in New york. He was completely drained, so much so that he couldn't even speak until the following day. He hated hospitals more then anything in the world and he would have tried to escape ...if he had the energy to do it.
The police had questioned him, saying that they found him in central park. Clothes torn up and bloody, covered in cuts and bruises. At the time, he had no idea where 'New york' was or what 'America' was, hell he couldn't speak English, but luckily one of the cops spoke his language, a man named Kouta Amori. He was even nice enough to teach the young jinchūriki English, about cars and the internet. The cop thought it was strange that Naruto knew nothing about any of these things, he was close to thinking he'd come from another planet, and, in a way. He didn't know how right he was.
But soon, after spending everyday and night in a hospital bed with nothing to do, Naruto decided it was time to leave. His chakra, although not fully back, was half of what it normally was on a bad day. But, He had to fine a way back home, and nothing was going to stop him from doing that.
So one night, when most of the doctors left and the patients were asleep. Naruto packed some clothes and changed out of his hospital gown into some jeans and a white T-shirt, then hopped out the eleventh floor window. He had no idea how the doctors reacted to him disappearing all of a sudden, but if they were anything like the doctors in Konoha, they'd have someone looking for him.
And that's exactly what they did.
The cops were looking for him for days, Naruto had to stay hidden in the shadows and take the alleyways to avoid being chased. It was thanks to this that he met her. The young girl who'd became like a little sister to him, Abigail.
They'd met one day in an alleyway close to her home in Brooklyn, she was on here way from school, and Naruto was looking for a way to make so money so he could eat. He didn't really know why she helped him in her time of need, maybe it was because she felt pity for him being homeless or maybe she had a big heart. But, no matter the reason, Naruto was happy she did.
She brought him food and even introduced him to her father, who was nice enough to take him in, after a few questions on his background of course. Naruto's stay wasn't permanent, it was only until he made enough money and got a job to live on his own.
Abigail was a sweet girl, in many ways she reminded Naruto of himself when he was her age. She liked playing pranks, watching movies, and reading horror novels. She didn't have a lot of friends, but she was happy with the small group she had. And she got along great with Naruto, they played together in the park and took walks out downtown.
By this time, the cops had stopped looking for him, and he was thankful for that.
But, good times don't last forever, not even in a world that was, seemly, peaceful. Things change and it changed for the worst.
A week into the next month the virus showed up, no one knows where it came from or how it started, people just started getting sick, the hospitals got fuller and fuller, then the sick started dying. The only problem was, they didn't stay dead.
Things went straight to hell after that, people were getting attacked on the streets and in their homes. But, this wasn't just happening in New york though, this was happening all over the country and the entire world.
Abigail's father was one of the poor souls who became infected with the virus after getting bit by one of the carriers. After he died, Abigail took it hard. No one could replace her father, not even Naruto, but he had to take care of her and protect her, even if it killed him.
Too bad we couldn't give the old man a proper burial though. Naruto thought sadly, stopping on one of the roofs. The walkers had attacked the house shorty after Abigail's father died, so they had to leave right away. He practically had to pull Abigail off her dad's body while she was kicking and screaming.
"Naruto, do you think things will ever go back to normal?" Abigail asked, sleepily into Naruto's shoulder. "I don't want things to stay like this."
Naruto looked down at the chaos on the streets and frowned. "I don't know, Abigail. I truly don't know. Just sleep now, you've been through a lot today."
"Okay. Buenas noches, Naruto."
Naruto looked down at the girl, now sleeping in his arms, and smiled. Then he jumped to the next building and the next until he made it out of the city. He didn't know what would happen next, but they would survive. He would make sure of that.
New york city was gone, it belonged to the dead now.
