A/N: Okay when I first heard of this website, from a friend of mine, I was like 'holy crap this is fucking awesome' and then began reading until my heart contends. After looking over the crossover section of this awesome site, I noticed that there were few stories for one particular a Naruto and Shuffle! crossover fics. One I did manage to find one but the author of that said story has not updated in years and only has one chapter for it. Therefore, I took it in my hands to make and finally made one of my own.
It will take place in the Shuffle! universe and will explain how our favorite blond was sent there in future chapters. Just a heads up, Shuffle! was a novel game (adult hentai game) before it ever became a anime or light novel. Therefore, you should expect lemons as this is a harem and those of you who know, watched, or played Shuffle! there will be a slight OCness. In addition, the first chapter is similar to the anime's first episode just to start things off and later chapters will be different. Therefore, without further a due I give you the first chapter of my third story The Man Who Could Become Kami or Yami!
Beta-ed by: hopelina and Norinco.
The Man Who Could Become a God or Demon!
Naruto was fast asleep in his warm bed, having the most wonderful dream...
Naruto's eye's wandered. The stage he was on consistently lit up with the flashes of cameras. Over the roar of the cheering audience, he could barely make out the words of the many news reporters. "Naruto, is this the happiest moment of your life?" The answer to that question was so obvious, Naruto found no reason to answer it. "Naruto, what do you plan to do with your prize? Have you considered charity?" "Do you have any good family or friends you want to share with?" "Are you a supporter of breast cancer?" Naruto didn't even know where half the questions were coming from, but he didn't really care. He didn't even answer the questions he heard; he was too busy allowing his anxious eyes to search more of his surroundings. Where...
Finally! Naruto smiled as his eyes followed the man stepping onto the stage, or more specifically, the golden ticket in the man's hand. He bit his lip, mentally urging the man to come closer. 'Come on,' he thought, 'come on...' But, that didn't quicken the man's pace one bit.
He drew closer and closer to the blond. Naruto felt drool seep out the corner of his mouth. 'Come on... Come-' Naruto's thoughts were interrupted by a loud ringing.
Just as Naruto's tired, yet tense and shaking hand reached for the alarm clock to slam down and shut the demon from hell up, someone else did it for him. He let his hand drop and tried to find his way back into his wonderful dream world.
A sweet, caring voice called out to him, "Good morning, Naruto-kun. It's time to wake up."
"Five more minutes, Kaede," he replied, still half asleep. "I had that dream again."
"The one where you won a lifetime supply of ramen?" she giggled, receiving a nod from her blond friend. "Let me guess, you woke up just before you were given the golden ticket."
"Yeah, that's why I want five more minutes so I can finally get the damn thing!" he whined, looking up to see familiar blue eyes on a face framed by silky orange locks, cascading down to just below her shoulders.
More giggles bubbled from Kaede's lips. "I would love for you to finally get it, but if you don't get up your breakfast will get cold." She then leaned in closer to his ear and whispered, "I made ramen."
Just then, Naruto's left ear grew in size to listen more closely.
"Miso flavor? You know that's my favorite."
"Of course I did, silly!" she replied, smiling down at him.
"With some sliced pork and fishcakes?"
"Yup, now get up before its gets cold."
She took a step back as Naruto rose to his hands and knees. "How do you do it, Kaede?" he began as he sat up and stretched. "Not only do you get up early, but you make breakfast. You don't forget a thing, do you?"
"Not when it comes to you, anyway," she told him as she made her way to the door. "Breakfast is waiting for you, when you're ready. Come down soon, okay?" Kaede closed the door behind her.
"It's still hard to believe were the same age," he muttered to himself, standing up to change.
His name was Uzumaki Tsuchimi Naruto. The Tsuchimi part came from his late adoptive parents, who died in an accident eight years ago. Since then, he'd been living with Kaede Fuyou, who had been taking great care of him. She did his laundry, dishes, and pretty much everything else you could think of. He felt like he should have been the one who should be doing all the work, since he wasn't paying rent, but she wouldn't let him. Every time Naruto offered to help around the house, she would refuse to let him. On the occasions when he tried to work without asking, she would always catch him and take over what he barely started. The only thing she would probably accept was him giving her a sponge bath, but that's a little off topic.
Kaede and Naruto had been friends since they were kids. They went through a rough patch, in the past, but Naruto doesn't hold it against her. It became water under the bridge. As for Kaede's parents, her father works for a big company, so he is usually on business trips. For her mother, she died in the same accident that took Naruto's parents lives. As a result, Kaede and Naruto were the only ones who lived in the house. I know what most of you are probably thinking, two teenagers alone in a house and all that other stuff. It's not that Naruto didn't harbor feeling for her, he just didn't want to ruin the relationship they had. After all, they have to live in the same house together, and that would make it twice as bad.
So, even with Naruto's hidden feelings, the two still get along great. The only thing that worries Naruto is that Kaede works a little too hard. When he walked into the kitchen, there was enough on the table to feed five people.
"Here you go, Naruto-kun," Kaede smiled as she placed a bowl in front of said teen. In the bowl was miso ramen with three slices of pork and fishcakes shaped like his head – Naruto's favorite.
Naruto's classmates, especially the males, would kill for Kaede's home cooking. It's like a gift from Kami, himself! And yet, he's lucky enough to eat it every day. Not only that, but he gets to eat her ramen every day. All of her cooking is delicious, but with her ramen, every bite is like an orgy in his mouth. Naruto doesn't know how she does it, but its quality is on par with the old man's ramen he used to eat form. He sometimes wondered how they can even afford all the food she makes him.
"You know, Kaede…" He began as he examined the spread of different foods on the table. "We can just have toast, next time."
"Okay, I'll make toast tomorrow," she replied gleefully. Then, she went into a cute thinking pose with her chopsticks in hand. "Let's see, what goes good with toast?" She asked herself, causing Naruto to sweat-drop. "I know! Some eggs, bacon, maybe some sausage, and hash browns would be good, too."
"No, Kaede, I mean just plain toast. That way, you don't have to work so hard," Naruto tried to explain.
"Oh, no, it's not hard! I love taking care of you, Naruto-kun! It's what I enjoy doing the most," she told him, smiling fondly. Suddenly, her cheerfulness dimmed. "Does that bother you?"
"Oh, no, I don't mean it like that!" Naruto quickly replied, not wanting to hurt her feelings.
Her expression brightened again. "Good! Would you like some tea?" she offered, doing a complete one-eighty as she pushed her chair out to bring Naruto some tea.
Eventually, Naruto and Kaede both finished their breakfast and made their way outside so they could head to school. Kaede who closed their front door while Naruto waited for her at the front gate ran up to him and held out his bento box.
"Here's your lunch, Naruto-kun." Kaede grins as she hands it to him.
As he took it from her hands, he noticed that she didn't have her own lunch in her hand.
"Kaede, where's yours?" he asked, earning a red tint on Kaede's face.
"Oh, gosh, I forgot." She ran back inside to get hers.
Naruto looked around and noticed a few more neighbors had moved, making a total of eight. It got him wondering if they pissed them off or something. However, that thought was pushed aside as he heard Kaede rushing up to him.
"I'm sorry for making you wait so long," she apologized but he waved it off.
"Don't worry about it. Just try to remember next time, okay?"
"Good. Now come on, we don't want to be late."
Flinging his school bag over his shoulder, he headed off to school beside his childhood friend.
"So, you think your Oto-san will be gone for long, this time?" Naruto asked, trying to pass the time; it was a half hour walk to school.
"He said he might be gone for three to four months."
"Three to four months? Wow, most dads wouldn't leave a young man alone in a big house with their only daughter," he pointed out, watching a black cat run up some stairs.
"I don't know, maybe he trusts you," she replied.
"You think that, but he did tell me to go for it before he left, saying I have his approval," Naruto informed her. He saw her face turn red in the corner of his eyes. "He should be thinking about your future. Isn't he worried that other guys might be intimidated by our relationship? Not that I'm worried if they mess with me, I'll just give them the old one-two." He pumped his fist in the air, making Kaede giggle.
"I think Oto-san is thinking about the same future that I am," she admitted, blushing as she looked up at him.
"What?" he asked, not catching what she said?
"Oh, it's nothing," Kaede replied, still blushing.
"I've been waiting for you, Uzumaki-teme," a man called out from a top of the stairs in front of them.
Looking ahead, they saw a tall, fearsome looking man with a cue-ball-like haircut. He was in a baseball uniform, carrying a nailed bat.
"My name is Magnum Sakai, and I'm from Kitto Kitto Kaede-chan, also known as the KKK," the man declared.
"You racist bastard," Naruto joked. "And besides, aren't you a little old to be in high school?"
"Shut up, Uzumaki-teme, I'm not racist. I'm here to confess my love for Kaede by eliminating you. Now die!" the man exclaimed as he jumped from the stairs with his bat ready to attack.
"Kaede, watch out," he told her. Fully aware what he was going to do, she backed away.
"Be careful, Naruto-kun," she whispered.
Just as the man was in striking distance, Naruto shifted his stance so when the man's bat came striking down, he easily dodged it. It struck the pavement in his stead, cracking it on impact. Before the man could react, Naruto quickly chopped him in the back of the neck, knocking him out cold into a face-plant.
"Naruto-kun, are you okay?" Kaede asked, worried he might have gotten hurt.
"I'm fine, but I can't say the same for him. That fall looked like it hurt," he replied, worrying more about his attacker.
Kaede looked at the man who just attacked her friend. He wasn't moving, but to her relief, he was still breathing.
"Do you think we should call someone to help?" she questioned, just as worried about him.
"Nah, he'll be fine. I'm more worried about being late to class. If we are, Ms. Nadeshiko makes me run both of our laps, with a tractor tire tied to me." He shuddered at the thought of it.
"You're probably right, she would do that," she agreed.
"You ready, then?" Naruto asked her, who looked confused.
"Ready for wha…eep!" She yelped when her blond haired crush swept her off her feet bridal style and sped towards the school. She couldn't help but blush, noticing how she could feel his toned muscles against her body.
When Naruto was six years old, something traumatic happened. Ever since then, he'd been training night and day to excel his physical strength and agility. He'd toned his training down a little, but there were still cases like the one he was currently in, where he had to sprint to school with Kaede in his arms. However, that kind of exercise was nothing to him, now.
It didn't take them long to arrive at school with Naruto's speed. However, he didn't like people knowing how well-trained he was, so he had to slow down once he got closer. The only one who knew about his abilities was Kaede.
Many looks were shot their way, once they arrived on school grounds. Half of them were hatred toward Naruto, who had the pleasure of carrying the beautiful Kaede Fuyou in his arms, and the other half were of jealousy towards Kaede, as she was being carried by Naruto. Both Naruto and Kaede were sought after by many students, in every part of the school. Though, Kaede was the only one with a fan club.
"We made it with time to spare," Naruto pointed out, forgetting the fact he was still carrying a blushing Kaede.
"Um, Naruto-kun…" She began, still embarrassed, as she got her friend's attention, "You can put me down now."
"Huh? Oh, sorry," he apologized, setting her down. Just as his lips parted to speak, he felt a hard slap to the back that made him stumble forward a bit.
"Hello!" a feminine voice called out from behind.
'God, why do her slaps hurt so damn much?' he thought as he rubbed his back.
Naruto turned around to be greeted by an upperclassman, who was a close friend to both he and Kaede. Her name was Asa Shigure. She had green, shoulder length hair with a ribbon tying up her left bangs, and purple eyes. She was a tomboy.
"Hello, Asa-sempai," he greeted her, still rubbing his back.
"Aw, is the big bad ninja wannabe hurt?" she mouthed sarcastically.
"No, it's just your hello slaps hurt like hell," Naruto replied with a glare.
"Then, do you want me to greet you like this?" She then grabbed hold of his left arm, placing it between her breasts giving a light squeeze. He blushed lightly.
"Asa-senpai, what the hell!" Naruto exclaimed, receiving looks from passing students.
Said woman smiled down at her blond friend. "Is this greeting better?" She squeezed her breasts a bit more into his arm.
"Come on, people are watching! I have it bad enough with Kaede's fan boys, I don't needs yours," he groaned.
She released hold of his arm and took a step back.
"Oh, lighten up. If you're so worried about Kaede's fan boys, you shouldn't be carrying her in your arms on the way to school," Asa said in a matter-of-fact tone.
"Asa-sempai!" Kaede whined, her embarrassment still present.
"It's okay, Kaede. I wouldn't mind having Naru-chan carry me in his arms like that, too," she smiled.
"I get it. Your jealous cause I carried Kaede, and not you, so you slapped me?" Naruto questioned her.
A faint blush spread across her cheeks. "Y-you wish I did! Anyway, I have to get going," she declared before hurrying off.
Naruto watched Asa disappeared behind one of the many lockers, and then turned to Kaede.
"We should get going, too, before we're late," he suggested, heading off towards their lockers.
Once they reached the door of their classroom, Naruto stopped Kaede from opening the door, having her stand back. Taking a deep breath, Naruto opened it.
"Kaede-chan, welcome to my heart!" some random boy exclaimed. He had ear length, brown hair and wore glasses. Naruto punched him in the gut.
"Welcome to the world of pain, Itsuki," Naruto countered with malice
"Uggh… sorry, man, but I don't like you like that," the man wheezed out as he slouched on Naruto shoulder.
"Man you sure pack a punch," Itsuki complained, rubbing his sore gut.
"Well, you shouldn't try hugging me," Naruto answered simply.
"I wasn't trying to hug you; I was trying to hug Kaede-chan! You just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time," Itsuki explained.
"More like you were. Anyway, why are you always trying to go for Kaede? There are plenty of other girls; take Mayumi for instance?" he suggested.
"Oh, come on, man. You know I have to have something to grab onto, if you know what I mean. Mayumi's too flat chested!" Itsuki proclaimed, using his hands to show her breast size.
"Whatever!" a voice shouted out as they walked up to them. She had shoulder length gray hair with two bangs that framed her face and hung down to her chest. She was heterochromia, which means she has two different color eyes, one being red, and the other blue.
"Hello, Mayumi-chan," Kaede greeted.
"Hello, Kaede," she replied. Then she turned to the two boys. "There is nothing wrong with being flat chested. As a matter of fact, there are guys who actually prefer it," she pointed out, placing her hands on her hips.
"True, but that's a small percentage and you know it," Itsuki countered.
"What are you talking about? No one wants D-cups anymore. Not D's, not C's, not B's, it's all about what fits in your hand," she declared, rubbing her chest.
"Does it feel like a… board?" Naruto joked, dodging one of Mayumi's blows.
"You guys, who can't wait to hug each other first think in the morning, shouldn't talk," Mayumi scoffed, waving her hand.
"Jealous," he replied, smirking when he saw her blush.
"Ahem… Anyways, what do you guys think about the new transfer student?" She quickly changed the subject.
"Oh yeah, I heard about that. So, is the student here already?" Naruto wondered.
"I don't know about that, but from what I hear, the student is either a god or a demon," Mayumi informed, crossing her arms over her chest in thought.
"The transfer student is going to be a very pretty girl," Itsuki declared, sounding very sure of himself.
"What makes you think that?" Naruto asked, but knew it was going to be something stupid.
"It's in the air! I can smell pretty from a mile away, and my nose is never wrong," he replied smugly.
He knew it.
"Whatever you say..." Naruto muttered, unconvinced. He gave him a weird look.
"You'd be surprised. Itsuki's nose is never wrong, when it comes to girls," the gray haired teenager attested, giving Itsuki the same look Naruto was.
"Does it really matter?" Naruto told them, as he could care less if it were a boy or girl.
"You're really not interested? Well, I shouldn't be surprised, since you have Kaede," Mayumi decided.
Naruto shook his head. "How many times do I have to tell you it's not like that? We're just friends!" the blond responded quickly.
Kaede felt a twinge of sadness, hearing the man she admired say that, but no one noticed.
"Come on, Naruto! If you lose your passion for girls, you'll lose you man card forever!" Itsuki exclaimed.
Naruto just looked at him and said, "This comes from a man who just recently threw his arms around me."
"Ugh, you're just too spoiled for you own good. You have a beautiful girl like Kaede-chan providing your every need. You don't even know your living a man's dream come true!" his four-eyed friend proclaimed, ashamed of Naruto.
"You don't know what you're talking about," Naruto countered, making his friend's head drop.
"You're hopeless… Naruto, tell me, do you think your living a fulfilled life, every single day?" he asked his blond friend. He didn't reply. "I didn't think so… Well I say, after school, we get you laid," Itsuki decided, giving his blond friend the thumbs up.
"So that's what you're going for." Naruto shook his head.
Just then, the door to the classroom opened and their teacher walked in.
"Alright, class, butts in your seats," she ordered.
Without a second thought, everyone hurried to their assigned seat and waited for the teacher to start class.
Class was the same as always. The teacher was going on about an incident, ten years ago, known as the gate opening. That was the incident when the gateway to the world of the gods and the world of the demons were opened. That was how both the gods and the demons began migrating to this world. Both have pointy ears, and the best way to tell them apart was the size of those ears. The gods had shorter ears, while demons' ears were larger. Because of the gate opening, places where humans, gods, and demons could live and studied together were created. Naruto just so happens to live in one of these places.
Naruto paid no mind to either the teacher or the class. Instead, he gazed out the window, running over his conversation with Itsuki in his head. He said Naruto wasn't living a fulfilling life, which was obviously right, and that his friends all have something they do. Itsuki chases girls every day, Kaede always takes care of him, Mayumi is always chasing for any breaking news, and Asa tries to live her life to the fullest. They all found something that fulfills them, and what does he have? Nothing but school and training.
Whilst he was pondering about what he lacks, he never noticed his teacher walk up to him.
"You sure look relaxed right now," his teacher, Ms. Nadeshiko pointed out, leaning on his desk. It scared the hell out of him. "My class must be extremely boring for you," she added as he turned to face her, sweat drops falling down his face at a rapid pace. "Sorry, I'm such a terrible teacher."
"Me too, n-no not that I mean you're terrible, I…" Naruto panicked. Luckily, for him, the bell rang.
"You lucked out, Uzumaki," she declared, standing back up on her feet.
Naruto mentally sighed. It was as if he was going up against Godzilla or something! Not that she was ugly; Ms. Nadeshiko was actually a smoking babe, with a body to boot. She just can be extremely frightening.
Before Naruto could reply to her comment, Ms. Nadeshiko instructed, "Come with me, we need to talk."
Naruto shot her a confused look, but obeyed nonetheless. He allowed her to lead him out into the hallway. "Naruto, have you ever become acquainted with girls from other worlds, when you were a kid?"
'That was an unexpected question,' Naruto thought to himself. "Well, not that I can remember," he answered, rubbing the back of his head sheepishly. 'If only she knew,' he added in his head. "But, I wasn't aware people from other world's existed, back then," he lied. "Why do you ask?"
"Oh, it's nothing you should be worried about… At least I don't think it is?" she decided, the last part mostly to herself.
"Well, you obviously have something on your mind," he pointed out. She was deep in thought.
"The only advice I can give you for now, is be strong." She placed both her hands on his shoulders, giving him a nice view of her cleavage. "I'll help you as much as I can," she continued, starting walking down the hall way. "Remember to be strong, Uzumaki, and never give up; no matter what." She then turned a corner and disappeared, leaving Naruto dumbfounded.
"I don't get it, what is it that I have to be strong about," he wondered aloud.
The final bell rang and everybody was up out of their seats in an instant, heading off to who knows where. As for Naruto, he walked over to Kaede, who was putting her things in her bag.
"Ready to go home, Kaede? I'm starving." Naruto rubbed his stomach as it growled.
"Sorry, Naruto-kun," she giggled. "But I can't go home yet."
"Why? Do you need to stay later for something?" he asked. Before the orange haired beauty could answer, someone called out to her.
"Hey, Kaede!" Asa yelled, grabbing both of their attention. "Sorry for making you wait. Are you ready to go?"
Standing beside Asa was a blonde haired girl whose hair flowed down to her waist, with two long bangs framing her face. Just like Asa, she had one her bangs tied with a ribbon, only hers was on the right side. She bore green eyes and short pointy ears, signifying she was a god.
"Asa-sempai and Kareha-sempai, what are you two doing here?" Naruto queried.
"Hello, Naruto, it's nice to see you," Kareha greeted him. "I heard something about you and Itsuki," she added, causing Naruto to sigh.
"What the hell are the upperclassmen saying, this time?" he asked, not liking were this was heading.
"You know, forbidden love," she answered, her body lighting up with sparkles floating around her as she explored her own little world.
Naruto face-palmed, knowing he was going to have to kicks some of the upperclassman's ass, later today. Cracking his knuckles, he questioned, "Tell me, Kareha-sempai, who told you this? I want to pay them a friendly visit."
"Naruto-kun, you can't! If you are suspended one more time, not only will you have to deal with Ms. Nadeshiko, but also you'll be expelled! So please, don't do anything rash," Kaede pleaded.
"Have I really been kicked out of school that many times?" Naruto asked, shocked.
He listed his reasons for suspension, in his head, 'Let's see... The first time, I was kicked out for someone making fun of my whisker marks. Another time was when some of those KKK idiots came after me and I kicked their asses. The last I can remember was to that man who knocked over a bowl of ramen Kaede made for me in her home Ed class, out of jealousy. He'll think twice before he ever tries that again,' He snickered as he remembered the look on the envious man's face when he saw how pissed Naruto was. "Wow, I didn't know I was suspended that many times, but I could always take whoever it is off school property." He smiled at his own idea.
"Naruto-kun, please promise me you won't get into any more fights," she pleaded once more, putting on one of the cutest begging faces he'd ever seen.
Naruto sighed in defeat. "Fine, you win. I promise."
Just then, the door to the class opened, revealing an enthusiastic Mayumi.
"The new transfer student is a girl," she announced loudly, grabbing everyone's attention (especially the boys'). "Not only that, but there's two of them. One of 'em is a god, and the other is a demon. Also, they're both really pretty."
Naruto and the others watched as the whole class crowded up around Mayumi as she began to inform them of her knowledge of the incoming students. Asa looked from the crowd, over towards Naruto, and wondered why he wasn't gathered with the rest of them.
"What's wrong not interested in the new girls?" she asked him.
"I don't see the point in getting so worked up. Yeah, they're girls, but it's not like I don't see them every day," he replied, showing no interest for the new students.
"I get it, it's because your with Kaede. I guess she doesn't have to worry about any romantic rivals for a while," she proclaimed.
Naruto shook his head. "How many times do I have to tell you guys we're just friends?" he sighed, but she didn't buy it.
"Whatever helps you sleep at night," she shrugged, before glancing over to Kaede. "Anyway, you ready, Kaede?"
"Yes," Kaede replied. She stood up from her seat and looked at Naruto. "I'm learning how to make a new recipe to cook for you." Glee was written in her expression as she spoke.
"Aren't you glad you have such a beautiful girl who is eager to learn how to cook for you?" Asa teased, moving to his side. "Lucky!" She smacked his shoulder a couple times.
"God, what are you trying to do, beat the whisker off of me?" he groaned.
His green haired friend just giggled as he rolled his now sore shoulder. "Now why would I do that?" She grabbed one of his cheeks. "You look so cute with them," she pestered in a cute voice as she pinched and pulled his cheek.
"Let go," he demanded. When she obeyed, he made his way to rub his cheek.
"We should really get going. Bye, Naru-chan!" Asa waved as she and Kareha both walked away with Kaede trailing behind them.
Kaede stopped in her tracks to turn and face her favorite blond. "I promise to make you a big pot of ramen, when I come home!" She then ran off before Naruto could say anything.
With a sigh, Naruto flung his handbag over his shoulder and made his way towards the upperclassmen building to pay someone a visit.
Positive a certain upperclassman was taught to keep his mouth shut, he ventured to the grocery store to pick up a snack.
"Hmm… Ten instant cups should be good," he decided aloud, placing the tenth cup of instant ramen in his handcart. "I should get something to wash it down with; maybe some juice or soda will be good."
Making his way over towards the beverages, he saw a red headed girl with short pointy ears pondering what kind of meat to buy. As he walked by her, he could hear her saying something about the cost of the meat and how she could save money buying the bigger one or how she could get more if she bought two smaller ones. Just as he passed her, she turned and asked him something.
"Excuse me, I need help?" she called, holding up two the different packages of meat.
"Ah… Sure, how can I help?" Naruto replied, not sure, if he could.
"Thanks! You see, I'm cooking for someone who eats a lot, but I'm not sure which one of these to buy," she filled in as she looked between the packages of meat in her hand. "Should I buy two of these medium ones or just buy the larger one? Ugh, my head hurts just thinking about it."
Naruto didn't know what to think, but he did know one thing. If she was cooking for someone who eats a lot like him, it was always the best choice to buy the most food.
"Since you are cooking for someone who eats a lot, you should get two to the medium ones," he offered.
The god nodded and grabbed another medium package, placing the larger one back. "Thanks so much, you really helped. I would love to stay and talk, but the drug store has a sale on toilet paper that I can't miss."
She blushed as he gave her a foxy smile. "No problem, I'm just glad I could help," Naruto told her.
She smiled back. "I guess I'll see you later, then, Naruto-kun." She then ran off, leaving Naruto to his thoughts.
'Who was she?'
Shrugging it off, he made his way to grab his beverage, pay for his things, and head home.
Naruto decided to take a short cut home. On the way was a small park, where he heard one of the most beautiful voices ever to reach his ears. Searching for the source of the melody, he spotted a beautiful young girl about his age sitting on one of the swings. She had light purple hair, tied in a ponytail with ribbon, and long pointy ears. Leaning against a park wall, he absorbed to breathtaking tune. Once she finished, he clapped out of reflex. Startled, the girl stood and turned to the direction of the clapping. Her gaze soon landed on a boy with unruly, spiky blond hair and azure colored eyes. Three whiskers marked each of his cheeks. She mentally noted how cute he was in a school uniform.
"Were you listening this whole time?" she queried, slightly self-conscious.
"Sorry, I didn't mean to, but I couldn't help it. Once I heard you singing, I just had to stop to listen... I must say, you have a beautiful voice," he complimented.
"I'm not that good, but it's nice of you to say that. There are much better singers then I am," she pointed out modestly.
He couldn't believe that she would say something like that.
"Are you kidding me? You have an amazing voice, and I would love to hear you sing, again!"
She smiled brightly. "Thank you, Naruto-sama. Who knows, if keep your ears open, you might hear my voice again."
The evening siren could be heard off in the distance. The young girl checked her watch.
"It's late, already. If I don't get home soon, my Oto-san is going to punish me," she reported.
"I wouldn't want that to happen," he chuckled.
"I'm glad we were able to talk with one another." She politely bowed to him and left Naruto by himself.
'Wow, I was able to meet two beautiful girls today. I must be lucky,' he thought as he headed home.
Naruto was finishing his last cup if instant ramen when it finally dawned on him.
'How did they know my name?' he asked himself, not remembering telling either one of the girls his name. And yet, somehow they knew.
That thought was short-lived when he heard the front door open. He had a feeling something bad was going to happen.
"Uzumaki Tsuchimi Naruto, where are you!" Kaede exclaimed.
Yes, something bad indeed. She left out the -kun suffix, and she only did that when she was upset with him.
Swallowing the food in his mouth he replied, "I'm in the kitchen."
Suddenly, the door to the kitchen opened, revealing a very upset Kaede. She walked in the kitchen and stopped just in front of him, her arms crossed over her chest.
"Would you please explain why I saw an upperclassman hung up on the flag pole by his pants?" she asked, tapping her foot impatiently.
"First of all, how do you know it was me?" he retorted, knowing what he'd done.
"I don't know, maybe because he told me after Asa and I got him down," she answered. Her expression dulled. "Naruto-kun, you promised you wouldn't do anything like that."
"No, I promised not to get into any fights. All we did was have a friendly chat, and then I tied him up to the flag pole as a warning," Naruto countered in a matter-of-fact tone.
"Naruto-kun, that's not the point. If it wasn't for Asa and I talking the student out of tattling, you would've been expelled!" she lectured.
Her worried tone told him he was pushing it when he tied up the upperclassman up. He didn't intend to worry Kaede so much, but he should have known doing what he did would.
Sighing for the third time that day, he placed both hands on her shoulders. "I'm sorry, Kaede. I didn't mean for you to get so worried," he told her honestly.
"That's good to hear, but for punishment you can forget about the ramen," she said sternly. Naruto looked at her, shocked. "Don't give me that look – that's what you get for breaking a promise. Now… go think about what you've done while I make dinner," she instructed, pushing him out of the kitchen.
"You're still going to make me some ramen, like you promised, right?" Naruto received no response. "Right, Kaede?" Again, no answer. "Kaede? Kaede?" This time he did receive an answer: the door shutting in his face. "KAEDE!"
Let's just say Naruto didn't get the ramen he was promised.
The next day at school, everyone was anxious to see the new transfer students. The boys were all sitting on the edge of their seats. Itsuki was literally shaking in excitement.
"Come on, could you get a grip, please?" Mayumi asked Itsuki, knowing it wouldn't do any good.
"No, I can't. Making the first impressions is crucial." He stood up. "Hey, you guys, are you ready?" he shouted, causing a large crowd of boys to cheer.
The teacher just shook her head, telling the students waiting in the hall to come in. Just as the door opened, every boy except Naruto stood up and cheered some even shooting confetti.
"All right, here we go now. This is what I call a happening school, it seems to be a fun place after all," a man's voice called out. The males froze in shock.
"Wow, I think you're right. There are so many pretty young girls around, I'm beginning to feel like a young stud again," another man agreed.
One man had gray, ear length hair, brown eyes, and short pointy ears. He wore a Japanese style Gi outfit. The other had waist length gray hair, red eyes, and long pointy ears. He dressed in a long sleeve turtleneck shirt with gray pants.
"No way. These are the new transfer students. I guess Itsuki's nose was wrong," Naruto commented.
"Well, which kid is it? Is he here?" the taller of the two men questioned, his eyes wandering.
"Ah, look, there he is." The other male pointed to Naruto.
Every eye in the class watched as the two newcomers walked over to Naruto's desk.
"Hmm, he's definitely not bad to look at. He would be perfect for my Sia," the taller one proclaimed as he eyed Naruto.
"Hey, not so fast there, Shin-chan. Naruto-chan so happens to be Narina-chan's fiancé, remember?" the smaller one reminded.
"Hey, no fair!" the taller man exclaimed, turning back towards Naruto. "Naruto, take good care of my Sia for me, okay?"
"Uh… Sure?" Naruto replied in confusion.
"Hey, pal, listen up. My Sia has a cute body, so you better have the energy to…" Out of nowhere, the girl Naruto saw at the grocery store threw a chair at him before he could finish his sentence.
"Oto-san, that's disgusting! Don't say things like that," Sia yelled, blushing with embarrassment.
"Sia, I've told you hitting people with chairs is going too far!" her father managed to say, despite the pain coursing through his body.
"Sia, don't you think that was a bit too harsh?" the other girl Naruto met the day before asked.
"Wait, you two know each other?" he queried, surprised to see both of them in his class. They burst into a fit of giggles.
Eventually, everything calmed down and the four newcomers lined up in front of the class.
"So, why don't you introduce yourselves?" Ms. Nadeshiko gave permission to proceed.
"My name is Lisianthus, and I'm from the world of the gods. Since my name is long, you can just call me Sia," she told the class with a smile.
"My name is Narina, and I'm from the world of the demons. I would love it if everyone would call me Rina," Narina spoke shyly.
"I'm Eustoma; I'm Sia's Oto-san and the king of the gods," Eustoma proclaimed proudly.
"And I'm Forbesii. I'm the king of the demons and Narina-chan's Oto-san," Forbesii introduced himself.
"I didn't mean you two," Ms. Nadeshiko muttered to herself.
"Um… Sensei, did I hear them right? Did they say they were the kings of the gods and demons?" Mayumi asked for the whole class.
"Yes, you heard right. Bear with me, I know it may be hard to believe, but these two are the kings of the gods and demons," Ms. Nadeshiko informed the class.
"Please, don't treat us different just because we are princesses," Sia urged.
"Yes, just treat us as if we were regular students," Narina requested.
"There you have it," the teacher stated. She looked over to Naruto." Uzumaki, it'll be your job to take care of these girls."
"What? Why the hell do I have to do it?" Naruto tried to reason.
"I'll be happy to explain, if you like?" Forbesii voiced, getting everyone's attention. "You see, Naruto-chan, you have been chosen to be either Narina-chan's or Sia's husband," he informed. The whole class was in awe.
"What?" Naruto exclaimed. The rest of the boy's stare at him in disbelief.
"To put it plainly, you can choose to become king of the gods or king of the demons. If you chose my Sia, then all the power of the gods will be at your command," Eustoma stated.
"But, if you chose my Narina-chan, then all the power of the demons will at your disposal until your heart contents," Forbesii added with a smile. Both Sia and Narina laughed.
'I could either become king of the gods or king of the demons,' Naruto thought to himself. 'How the hell did I get myself mixed up in this?'
