5 years after Kyuubi's attack
"This is becoming a nightmare!" One of the Elder advisors of the Uzumaki clan shouted in the council chamber. "That…boy…is ruining this clan's reputation!" There were whispers amongst the gathered group about that statement.
"Fifteen times, fifteen times we've had to request ANBU protection for that failure in the last month," another replied. "We're losing face while the Uchiha and Hyuuga continue to gain power. At this rate we'll end up like the Kurama clan, a weak minor clan no longer on the council group. We need to do something about this situation now."
"The boy shows no talent in any of the clan techniques" another voice spoke, "Not only that but he doesn't even have our bloodline in his body. As a matter of fact, he doesn't even have chakra in his body at all other than the demonic one sealed away. He doesn't have any trace of our chakra. Someone like him isn't need in our clan. We have strived to reach the same level as the Senju and Uchiha clan. Before he came along, we were always compared to them as equals. But now we're losing that power. That boy is cancer to our reputation. Keep him around too long and it'll affect us on a high scale." The group once again whispered to one another about the situation.
"We should distance the clan from that failure" stated the second voice, "With the new contract offered to us by the Fire Lord himself, the boy's presence would only be a hindrance. Even now, he disrupts the training of his twin sister, who is turning out to be a genuine prodigy for the clan. Kasumi-chan may not be in the direct line for clan succession, but she's certainly going to be a prize jewel for us in a few years."
The trio of elders nodded, and then turned to stare at the red haired woman kneeling before them. Once, this woman was the prize of the Uzumaki clan. A jounin of remarkable skill, second only to the Densetsu no Sannin, Sandaime Hokage, Hatake Sakumo, and her own deceased husband Namikaze Minato, Uzumaki Kushina had in recent years turned cold and almost unfeeling. She rarely spoke to the council, or to any other clan members, unless it was absolutely necessary. Even her two children, the aforementioned Kasumi and the boy –Naruto– received little attention from her.
"Kushina-sama," the head elder spoke, "You know that the Fire Lord has requested our entire clan move to the capital city of Fire country, Hinokakugin (Fire Pavilion). This move gives the clan a great opportunity to reclaim some of the honor your son has cost us…perhaps even gain greater renown as his highnesses' body guards. However…"
"You needn't ask me what you are about to, Kosuke-san," the cold woman replied, "You wish me to leave my son here in the village while the rest of us travel to the city."
"Yes, that is correct," the old man replied, "Do you have a problem with it?" He eyed her carefully and waited for her response. He would read her body language if she showed it this time. Lately reading Kushina had been extremely hard. It was like staring at a brick wall. Maybe she would subconsciously show some type of emotion now.
Kushina felt a tug at her soul, even as she voiced her answer. She looked at the elders with eyes of cold blue ice not showing any signs of remorse.
"No," she replied, "I will do what is best for the clan. We will leave immediately before our reputation is dragged into the mud any further. I hope everyone has packed their belongings because we're not waiting for anyone." The Elder advisors smiled at her decision. It would seem that Kushina had proven that she was more than capable of being a clan head after all. The needs of a clan come before the needs of one person. The group made their way to wagons waiting outside their compound.
"Kaachan?" a small voice whispered catching Kushina by surprise even though she didn't show it. She turned to face the voice with cold uncaring eyes on the small child that called her. The boy was 5 years old with blonde hair, blue eyes, and fair skin matching her complexion. Beside the small child was an elder man with grey hair, several wrinkles and very few liver-spots. He wore the Hokage's gear which consist of the customary hat and cloak, which he wore over a red, full-length gown that was tied using a white sash. This was Hiruzen Sarutobi, Sandaime Hokage of Konoha and ruling Hokage after the Yondaime died sealing Kyuubi away at the cost of his life. Currently he was looking at Kushina with pleading eyes.
"Kushina-san, I beg you once again to stay this madness!" Hiruzen's voice carried both anger and pleading. "This is your son, by the Kami! To abandon him this way…" He didn't want to think about the damage that could occur to the boy mentally. Kushina's cold eyes remained the same as did her unreadable body language.
"It is the will of the clan, Sandaime-sama," she replied, "I will do what is in the best interests of my clan. If leaving the boy is the best thing for the clan then I will do so as clan head. As a matter of fact, we officially disown him from now on. He will no longer be permitted to carry the name Uzumaki."
"Kaachan?" the small boy whimpered again, even as his big sister gave him a look of pity mixed with longing, "Was…was I bad? Did…did I…do something wrong?"
Kushina ignored the boy's questions, though she again felt the strange pull at her heart she had felt a week prior when the decision had been made. "We are the last one's here aside from Arashi-san," she replied, "He'll stand proxy for the Uzumaki clan on all civilian and shinobi matters. Katsumi and I must depart now."
"Goodbye, Sandaime-sama," the woman finished, before walking away. She climbed into the wagon with her daughter, and the driver lashed the horses, getting them moving.
The blond boy stared at the wagon as it moved away from his home. His heart crumbled at the thought of being left. Without realizing it, his legs began taking him to the moving wagon. He forced himself to run as fast as he could and ignored the burning feeling he was experiencing right now. The wagon continued to move forward, even as he began to shout his pleas. "KAACHAN….DON'T LEAVE ME!" He continued running until he was at the gates of Konoha. It was there he tripped over his feet causing him to fall. He didn't acknowledge the fact that he scraped some skin. The only thing that mattered was the wagon.
As he was about to make another attempt to run after the wagon he felt someone's hand on his shoulders. Naruto turned around and slammed his face into the robes of the Hokage and cried. Hiruzen embraced the young boy giving the boy emotional support.
"Oji-chan, why did Kaachan and Onee-sama leave me? Did I do something bad?" the boy whispered.
"No Naruto-kun, you were a good boy." Sarutobi Hiruzen replied, patting the boy's back in an effort soothe his fractured heart, "You are truly special. Your Kaachan and Onee-san will see that someday." The boy continued to cry his soul out into the white robes of the old man.
"If…if I…if I become a good ninja," the boy sobbed, "Will…will that…make them love me?"
Sarutobi frowned over Naruto's head, even as he began to think of something to say. He wanted to cheer the boy up so he quickly thought on his feet and lied. Besides it was Minato's dream for Naruto to become a shinobi of Konoha so why not. He had Kyuubi's chakra to use so why not have Jiraiya teach him. If the boy could utilize Kyuubi's chakra then he could very well become a shinobi of Konoha. "I think…many will come to love you if you become a good shinobi, Naruto-kun. Just become the strongest shinobi ever and many people will respect you. As a matter of fact, why don't you train to become stronger than me so you could save me from a Kage's most deadly enemy? I would be happy if you save me from the evil monster I fight every day." Hiruzen by now was thinking about his paper work.
"B-but Jiji, no one else is stronger than you." Hiruzen shook his head at that. He sighed in relief that he managed to stop him from crying. The last thing he wanted was an emotional case on his hand that could possible lead to suicide. He had seen it happen several times for different reasons including the loss of parents through death or in Naruto's case abandonment. If Naruto died now then he wouldn't be able to become a shinobi. He promised Minato that he would try to get Naruto to become a shinobi before his death and that's what he would do.
"That's not true young Naruto. There are several others that are as strong if not stronger than me. I know one person or entity that could easily defeat me. He is the most powerful and most respected person." By now he had Naruto's full attention.
"Really, who is he?" Hiruzen smiled a little as he ruffled the boy's hair.
"Kami" was the simple answer. "No one could beat him other than another God. With the amount of power he has, he could do anything he wants. Almost everyone respects him as do I." Hiruzen continued ranting about Kami and Naruto listened to every word. His young mind soon began thinking about the possibilities of him and this power. As soon as Hiruzen was finished, Naruto's mind had formed a goal that he would strive for.
'One day I will become god and everyone will respect me. Anyone who tries to harm me will be sent to the bad place. I'll be able to punish all the bad people in my life and save jiji from the evil monster he's fighting. I will become a god.' Determination shone through is eyes which went unnoticed by Hiruzen. As soon as he finished that train of thought, he felt a strange pull on him. His head snapped in the direction it came from. He stared in the direction for what seemed like eternity.
"Naruto are you okay?" Naruto was brought from his thoughts by the concerned Hokage. He wiped his tears away and nods his head.
"Good now let's get some ramen shall we." Naruto pumped his fist in the air when ramen was mentioned. Hiruzen couldn't help but smile at how fast the boy forgot about his abandonment of his family and clan. Hiruzen grabbed him by the hand and led him towards Ichiraku ramen for ramen.
Naruto was found leaving Ichiraku ramen rubbing his tummy. He bit his teeth down in agony from the amount of pain he was experiencing at the moment. He didn't know why his stomach was hurting so much but what he did know was that his stomach started hurting after consuming ramen. Did that mean he ate too much ramen or did he eat too fast? He stopped mid-step when the pain amplified for a few seconds bringing tears to his eyes. Maybe his body didn't like ramen anymore. He clenched his eyes together hoping for the pain to go away. He opened it once more and began walking once more ignoring the pain.
'I'll get better soon because I'll be god one day. I'll tough it out for now. I'm a god in training so I'll have to learn how to take pain.' This thought helped him ignore the pain slightly but not by much. He forced himself to keep walking not noticing the blood dripping down his lips. Naruto stopped once more but it wasn't because of the pain this time. He felt a familiar pull on him but this time it was a little stronger than before. He began to wonder what it was he felt before when he was with his jiji. If it wasn't for the fact that he was with his jiji, he would have investigated it. But now he would be able to investigate it now. It's not like he had someone waiting at home for him. His jiji had informed him that Kushina no longer wanted him when he asked when they would return.
At first Naruto didn't believe him but seeing the sad face on his jiji made him realize that he wasn't lying. His parents didn't want anything to do with him and that crushed his spirit. His jiji hugged him and told him everything was okay and that he didn't need them at all. It was there he labeled his family and clan as bad guys needing to be punished in his mind. When he became bad, he would punish them for leaving him alone. Also he would never forgive them for making him cry.
Naruto turned in the direction the pull came from and walked with the determination to find out what it was. Naruto soon came upon a forest with heavily fortified gates each sealed off with chains and a rather large lock. There were warning signs all around the area making the young jinchuriki nervous. The pull came on him once more but unlike the last two times, it was stronger than before. Even the feeling that came with the pull was different. This time it felt as if something was calling him. As if in a trance, Naruto scanned the fence until he found a small gap in the gates large enough for him to barely squeeze through. Despite the nervous feeling he was experiencing, he walked towards the gap and squeezed his body through. Once on the other side, he made his way towards where the pull came from. By now he knew he was close though he couldn't really explain how he knew that. All he knew was that his body was drawn towards something located here and he would find out what it was. Naruto went into the forest and continued his search for whatever it was he was drawn to.
15 minutes of searching brought Naruto to the sight of a small bluish-purple orb that was glowing brightly. Naruto couldn't help but feel captivated by the beautiful orb. He wiped away blood pouring from his lips as he got closer to the orb. He wasn't aware that it was blood he was wiping away. He thought it was drool or something. When he went to wipe his hands of said drool, it was then he noticed the red on his hands. His heart began to race at the sight of his blood. Not only did his heart begin racing, but pain erupted in his stomach once more but unlike last time, the pain caused his legs to give out. He dropped on the glowing orb adding more pain. The last thing he saw was bright lights before blacking out.
As soon as Naruto lost consciousness, a white shell formed around Naruto's body until a prefect cocoon was formed around him covering him up completely.
"Na…..ru…..to" Darkness was everywhere he turned. There wasn't a light anywhere and it scared him. Naruto walked a few steps forward and stopped.
"Nar…..uto" His head snapped the direction it came from but found no one.
"Naru….to" The voice sound much closer than before yet he couldn't find the source of this voice. He scanned the area a few more times to make sure he didn't over look things.
"Naruto-sama wake up" A shiver went down his spine when he heard the voice directly behind him. There was also the dreaded feeling from behind him. Slowly he turned around to find the source of the voice but a hand on his shoulders prevented him from doing to. He turned his head slightly to see a soft pair of hands on his shoulder belonging to that of a female. The hand had a flawless white color to it while the nails were painted black. "You will see me in due time Naruto-sama. Right now you need to wake up." Her voice sent shivers down his spine. It was a beautiful voice fit for an angel. The world around him began to brighten.
Naruto opened his eyes to the sight of trees. He slowly sat up and began wondering why he was in the forest to begin with until memories of a certain pull and a small orb came back. He scanned the area for said orb but found none. He didn't get time to ponder on the situation when several animals' sounds were heard. One of them sound like a tiger or lion but he wasn't willing to stick around to find out. He stood up and ran towards the direction he came from. As he made his way back from the forest, he noticed that his stomach pain was gone.
'Maybe it was a tummy ache after all.'
He ran to the gates and left through the small gap he came in successfully escaping the forest. He stopped once he was outside the gate and allowed a triumph smile to grace his lips. He had concluded that this forest had some dangerous creatures in there. The fact that he went in and out must mean something right?
"Naruto" Said boy turned around when he heard his name being called. It was none other than his jiji carrying a look of concern. "Where were you Naruto? I've been searching for you all morning." Naruto scratched the back of his head nervously.
"Sorry I made you worry jiji. I went to check out this forest. I hit my head on something and everything went dark. Anyway I woke up and ran out the forest when I heard a tiger or something. I didn't want to be food for anyone so I ran." Hiruzen's face went to serious mode after Naruto was finished his tale. To go in the forest of death was something reckless. The last thing he wanted was for the young Kyuubi container to be eaten by one of the many mutated or abnormal animals in the forest of death. The forest of death was home to some of the most dangerous creatures ever. People that knew about the forest of death stayed clear of it. Amongst those people were anbu members.
"Well Naruto I want you to stay away from the forest. It's filled with dangerous creatures that will eat you." Naruto paled at the thought of being eaten by an animal. Hiruzen noticed this and knew he didn't need to go any further with his explanation. "Anyway let's move away from this area before something tries to eat us." That was all Naruto needed to hear as his legs took him away from said forest. Hiruzen chuckled as he followed the boy. As Naruto continued running from the forest, a small bluish-purple light shone from beneath his shirt for a brief second which went unnoticed by Naruto.
Naruto ran towards the Uzumaki compound and stopped when he noticed several Nins exiting the house with furniture in their hands. Standing next to the shinobi were civilians holding brief cases. Naruto stepped forward to ask what was going on but a hand on the shoulder caught his attention. He turned to find Hiruzen staring at the scene in contemplation. "Jiji what's going on? Why are they taking things from my home?" Hiruzen looked down at the boy and sighed.
"I'm sorry Naruto but the house was sold by your kaachan before she left. Everything she left behind is being seized by the council members to be sold or given away. You'll be moving somewhere new Naruto so don't worry about living arrangements. I'll take care of you from now on until you reach of age." Naruto didn't seem too happy about this at all. Hiruzen ruffled his hair softly. "Everything will be okay in the end. Now let's go see your new home Naruto." He placed a hand on Naruto's shoulders and vanished in a swirl of leaves.
The duo appeared in front of a small old apartment complex located in the slums of Konoha. "This will be your new home Naruto so why don't you explore the building for a while. The top floor has all your belongings and a few things I want you to study. Since you're not able to attend shinobi academy, I have enlisted you to attend civilian academy."
"Wait, why can't I go to the shinobi school jiji?" Naruto was completely confused as to why he couldn't attend the shinobi academy. He was told that in order to become a shinobi, one had to attend the academy first and graduate. If he couldn't attend said school then he wouldn't be able to become a shinobi just like the people in his clan said. He remembered their harsh words to him clearly. "You will never become a shinobi."
"I'm sorry Naruto but you don't have any requirements to attend the academy. You're not fit for shinobi related training nor do you possess chakra." Naruto's defeated and betrayed look caused the Hokage to wince. His eyes watered and his body trembled. Hiruzen looked away feeling sad for the boy.
"But what about what you said earlier? You told me to get stronger and that people will respect and love me." Hiruzen cursed inwardly that he brought that up. Hiruzen just couldn't look him in the eyes and tell him the real reason why he couldn't become a shinobi. While the requirement part played a large role in it, he would have still allowed the boy to become a shinobi however the larger part of the reason stems from the council members, a letter from the Uzumaki clan to the Fire Daimyo about the boy's situation, and finally the Fire Daimyo's letter preventing the boy from becoming a shinobi.
The Fire Daimyo stated that for a jinchuriki without chakra of his own to become a shinobi is a reckless decision. Since he didn't have chakra of his own to battle the beasts own chakra, he thought it would be safe that Naruto didn't become a shinobi at all. They all must believe that since he didn't have chakra to suppress the demon's own, then the demon would gain influence with time should he uses the beast's chakra. As to where he got that idea from, he had an idea. It had to be between the Uzumaki clan and his own Elder Advisors. Maybe it was the combination of the council members and the Uzumaki clan. Either way they made sure it was impossible for the boy to become a shinobi.
'I'm sorry Minato but at least I tried.' He was brought from his thoughts when Naruto pulled away and ran into his home. He glanced at hi retreating form and saw a lone tear drop hit the floor. 'I'm truly sorry Naruto-kun.' He turned around and retreat to his office to battle the evil paper work.
Naruto continued crying his eyes out that he wasn't able to become a shinobi. Why was everything going so wrong with his life? First he was left by his kaachan and the others without an explanation. Did he do something wrong? Now he won't be able to become a shinobi and get stronger. How was he going to become a god if he wasn't able to attend the academy school? How was he going to get stronger to gain everyone's respect if he wasn't a shinobi? The question was what he will do now. As far as he was concerned, being a civilian sucked.
'You don't need to become a shinobi to get stronger Naruto-sama.' Naruto stopped crying immediately when he heard the same female voice when he was in the forest. His head snapped in different directions to locate the source once more. 'You won't be able to find me Naruto-sama so there's no point in searching for me.' This stopped Naruto's attempt to find the voice.
"Who are you and where are you?"
'You don't need to speak out loud Naruto-sama. All you have to do is think your response and I'll hear you just fine. As to whom I am, I will tell you later after I have deemed you worthy. My location will be revealed later. I will answer your question later but right now, do you want power and why?'
'I want to become a god' was the quick response. He had already decided what he wanted to be after hearing his jiji talk about how great a god was. That type of power could very well help him do anything he wanted.
'Why do you want to become god Naruto-sama?'
'Because their strongest ever and that's what jiji said' was his quick response once again. 'Plus all Gods are loved and respected right?'
'No Naruto-sama, not all gods are loved and respected. Some gods are feared and hated but that's a story for another time. Right now let's focus on helping you gain power. However whatever I teach you must remain a secret. People will try to hurt you if they find out you're getting stronger of. Do you understand me Naruto-sama?'
'Very good now listen up closely.' And so begin Naruto's training by an unknown female.
8 years later
"Naruto-sama you're breakfast is ready. Should I bring it to the lab?" Naruto continued staring at the computer screen in front of him surfing through information he collected from Konoha's library in secrecy.
"That's ok Nemu-chan; I'll be having breakfast with you today. Just give me a few seconds." He continued scrolling through the remaining information to see if his new discovery was in. Once he was sure it was there, he rose from his chair and turned to his assistant Nemu Kurotsuchi, one of his creation.
Slender and youthful, Nemu has green eyes and black hair with slightly parted bangs and is pulled back into a long braid. Her uniform consists of a short black kimono that extends to mid-thigh with a white nagajuban under it. The sleeves of her kimono are not as wide as those worn by most Shinigami and the upper parts of the sleeves are puffed. She wears a traditional wide white obi with a red cord fastening it. In addition she wears white gloves that cover only the back of her hands and wrists; as well as a dark red choker.
She was an artificial soul recreated using knowledge gained from the Hogyoku. She was one of many things he re-created using knowledge gained from the Hogyoku. It was a shocking discovery to find that the little orb he found in the forest of death came from another time and dimension in search of someone with Reiryoku flowing through their body. Before his death Aizen Sosuke created a small rip in space to hide the device to prevent the Shinigami from gaining it. The rip would lead to the Dangai and hopefully swallowed up by the Kototsu. What he didn't count on was for the power of the Hogyoku to create another rip as soon as it reached the Dangai. That small rip closed once the orb went through and traveled back into time seeking out any Reiryoku signatures. It had zone in onto his location but a small barrier around the Uzumaki compound prevented it from landing near him. The orb bounced off the barrier and shot into the direction of the forest of death where it resides. It sensed the level of Naruto's Reiryoku and knew it wouldn't be able to communicate with Naruto for the time being. It was there it waited for Naruto's Reiryoku to reach a certain level.
As to how Naruto gained Reiryoku, he had gained Reiryoku from the Shinigami king that helped seal Kyuubi in him. When the Shinigami's hands came into contact with the infants body, a small amount of the entity's Reiryoku had escaped its body and into the infants replacing his chakra completely. The Reiryoku would slowly increase over time on its own. As to the Kyuubi discovery, he had his Zanpakuto spirit to thank for that. He was surprised when he discovered about his Zanpakuto and the power he was able to gain adds to the fact that said spirit was the owner of the same voice that helped him over the years. He was able to finally meet her at the age of 8 and he thought she was one of the most beautiful girls ever.
"Let's see what Nemu-chan prepared today. I'm sure it will be good as always." He walked up to Nemu and kissed her on the lip causing her to blush at the affection she was receiving. Despite being a mere creation, Naruto treated her more than that. She could see the love in his eyes when he saw her. The amount of affection he received made her feel devoted to him. She will without a doubt sacrifice anything to make him happy. "Nemu-chan, are you okay?" She was brought from her thoughts by his question.
"Hai I'm fine Naruto-sama. I was just thinking about how kind Naruto-sama is to me despite being his creation." Naruto waved it off as if was nothing.
"Don't think of yourself as a creation Nemu. Think of yourself as someone precious to me because that's what you are to me. You're happiness means a lot to me and I want you to understand this. Now let's eat before the food gets cold." He grabbed her by the hand and led her to the kitchen. Nemu blushed all the way to the kitchen from contact with her. Once the duo made it to the kitchen, he offered her a seat which she accepted before taking a seat of his own. The two began eating in silence and like always, Naruto always broke the silence.
"This is delicious Nemu-chan." That didn't end there as he gushed about how good she was at cooking and how he would never eat anything unless it was made by her which was true. Ever since the re-creation of Nemu, Naruto only ate food from her. He never went back to Ichiraku ramen shop ever after he discovered that they had poisoned his ramen several times to try killing him. When he discovered that dark aspect, memories of the bowl of ramen he ate when he was 5 came flooding back. It would seem that the tummy ache was the affect of their poison. Once they were finished eating, Nemu and Naruto washed and dried the dish. Naruto didn't want her to cook and clean so he offered her help. Once the dishes were done, Naruto went to his room for a change in outfit. He switched from his scientist garbs into simple civilian clothes. Once he was changed, he along with Nemu in tow walked towards a small portal. The portal would take him back to the basement of his apartment.
Naruto and Nemu transported from the portable dimension he created and back to Konoha's slums right in his apartment complex. They appeared behind a hollow wall and opened it to the sight and smell of shit. Naruto sighed in annoyance at the damage before him. "It seems that there was a recent break-in. At least the apartment's still standing."
"Don't worry about it Naruto-sama, I will have this cleaned in no time." Naruto held his hand up stopping her from making any moves.
"Don't worry; I'll have my new creations clean this mess up as well as the ones upstairs. I'm sure this isn't the only damage they caused. I'm glad I didn't build my lab here or things could have gotten messy. I'm glad the Hogyoku came with knowledge on the Seireitei allowing me to rebuild it. The Seireitei is more than enough space for me to work on my inventions freely and train. There are so many benefits to having the amount of space I possess. Anyway let's go for a walk Nemu-chan. I already contact the cleaners so they'll be here within the next few minutes." He grabbed her hand and walked out the apartment.
Naruto and Nemu turned around to find another one of his creation Nozomi Kujo. Nozomi Kujo is a short and petite woman with chin length dark green hair and purplish-red eyes. Nozomi wears a short shihakusho that goes only goes a little below her waist with a white band around the waist and knee high white boots.
"What is it you want Nozomi-chan? Did you want to come with me and Nemu-chan?" Nozomi blushed slightly and nod her head. She along with Nemu had a strong attraction to the young Naruto.
"Alright let's go" He motioned for her to approach him. Once she was close enough, he grabbed her hand as well before taking to the streets where they were greeted by glares and whispers.
"Look it's the demon and his whore. He even has a new whore with him."
"That demon and his whores should be put down before they multiply."
"I can't see why the Hokage kept him alive after all these years."
"At least he's not a shinobi. I heard the demon cried when he was told he couldn't get his powers back."
"If it wasn't for his whore, we would have been able to kill that thing."
"I'm sure the last Uchiha will kill it. As for the whores, I'm sure he would be interested in using them to build the Uchiha clan back to former glory."
Naruto ignored the whispers and turned his head towards Nozomi. He could care less about what these fools had to say about him. To him they were nothing but arrogant monkeys. "So how is the Project spearhead going? How far are we into creating my own special forces?" Nozomi thought about the mod-souls created based off on the Gotei 13 and a few other full-fledged souls reapers.
"We manage to re-create most of them sir that was within a certain time period. All of them are combat ready for anything." Naruto allowed a smile to grace his lips. "When are you going to create your new clan Naruto-sama? You did say you were going to create a clan since you weren't allowed to use Uzumaki. Have you found a name yet? If so why not get started now?" Naruto stumbled a bit at the reminder. He almost forgot about that. He scratched his chin in contemplation.
"Well I was thinking about using Kazama. What do you think Nozomi-chan?"
"Kazama is a good name Naruto-sama. You should have that name established somewhere outside Konoha. As to who will be on the list, I think its best that I don't tell you." Naruto's eyebrow rose at the mention of a list.
"How many girls are we talking about here Nozomi-chan?" Nemu giggled a little catching his attention.
"How many girls did you re-create Naruto-sama?" His face was that of confusion until a thought occurred.
"Wait, you don't mean-" Nemu nod her head cutting him off. Naruto stopped instantly and before Nemu or Nozomi could react, he shot backwards via super nose bleed. He twitched on the floor causing Nemu and Nozomi to giggle.
"So…. Many…..Girls" The thought of over sexual intercourse with over 20 girls was any man's dream. Names and faces of the women soon appeared in his mind.
Naruto cursed his zanpakuto spirit inwardly for making him like this. She was the one to introduce the opposite sex to him in a way that made him look at women differently.
'Don't forget little old me Naruto-sama.' By now he lost consciousness he was barely holding on to. Nemu walked over to him and lift him up over her shoulder surprising the people around them. She didn't seem to struggle with his body. Nemu and Nozomi turned towards one of Konoha's training grounds and walked off. It was there they would relax until Naruto came back around.
Back in the Seireitei, more specifically the captains assembly hall we find 13 powerful figures standing in two separate lines with one person standing in the middle. These were the re-creations of the Gotei 13 in a new mod-soul form. They were created to be more like humans but not exactly. While they were capable of human things like reproducing, eating, and a few other things, they were built much tougher than humans. While the name Gotei 13 and a few other things remained the same, their objectives were no longer destroying hollows since they didn't exist in this time or dimension. Their new goal was to serve their leader and creator Naruto as a special force.
The person in the center of the line was Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto, the captain of the 1st Division in the Gotei 13 and also the Taichou- Shushou (Captain-Commander) of the whole Gotei 13. He is an old man with red eyes a very long white beard, and long eyebrows. There are many scars on his torso and head, the two most prominent being a pair of long, perpendicular scars above his right eye, suggesting numerous battles in his past. He wears the standard Shinigami uniform, but its size is greatly exaggerated. He also drapes his haori over his back instead of actually wearing it.
Next to him was Sui-Feng, the commander-in-chief of the Onmitsukidō and the captain of the 2nd Division in the Gotei 13. Sui-Feng is a relatively short and petite woman with gray eyes and black hair. Her hair is worn short with two long braids bound in white cloth each ending in a large golden ring. She wears a traditional Shinigami captain's uniform with a sleeveless haori and a yellow obi tied around her waist. Underneath her standard Shinigami captain's uniform, Sui-Feng wears the uniform of the commander-in-chief of the Onmitsukidō, which has no sleeves and doesn't cover the back, though she does wear long black arm bands. Instead of wearing the standard Shinigami sandals with tabi, she wears traditional Chinese shoes with ordinary white socks. Her squad along with a few specializes in something and that something was special ops.
Third in line was Gin Ichimaru. Gin is fairly ordinary in terms of clothing, and doesn't wear any unique items. His overall appearance, however, is not as normal. He keeps his eyes constantly narrowed to slits, rarely ever opening his eyes enough to visibly reveal their bright sky blue-color. Although he appears to be an early to mid twenty-year-old person, he is unusually thin and tall with very sharp features giving him a skeletal appearance. He bears unusual silver hair, which was funny seeing as his name meant silver.
Forth in line was Retsu Unohana, the captain of the Fourth Division in the Gotei 13. Unohana has the appearance of a very youthful woman with blue eyes and black hair. She wears the standard Shinigami captain uniform apart from using an obi instead of the normal sash. Her hair is long and is always worn as a large braid in front. Her squad specializes in Medical, Supply, and Janitorial duties.
Fifth in line was Aizen Sosuke, captain of fifth seat division. He appeared as a mild-featured man with brown scholarly hair enhanced by square glasses. He wore the standard Shinigami uniform with a captain's haori.
Sixth in line was Byakuya Kuchiki, the captain of the 6th Division in the Gotei 13. Byakuya has slate gray eyes and long black hair, which he keeps up in intricate white headpieces called kenseikan that symbolize his nobility as the head of the Kuchiki family, one on top of his head and another on the right side. He wears the standard captain uniform along with a white scarf. He also wears fingerless white tekkou that cover only the back of his hands.
Across from Byakuya was Sajin Komamura, the captain of the 7th Division. He wore gloves with bracers, as well as a helmet, to conceal his entire body.
Next to Sajin was none other than Shunsui Kyoraku, the Captain of the 8th Division in the Gotei 13. Shunsui Kyoraku is a tall Shinigami with grey eyes and long wavy brown hair. His hair is tied in a long ponytail and has long bangs that frame the left side of his face. He wears a straw hat and a pink, flowered ladies kimono, which he drapes across his shoulders and over his captain's uniform. He has thin facial hair around his mouth and on his cheeks.
Next in line was Tosen Kaname was the captain of the 9th division. Tosen has dark skin and dark brown braids. He has pupil-less eyes that are pale lavender and has been blind since birth. While a captain he wore the traditional Shinigami uniform with the sleeves rolled up to the shoulders and his captain's haori over it; the uniform is tied with a purple obi sash. He also wore an orange scarf around his neck, white boots (instead of the normal sandals), and black, fingerless gloves. He usually wore clear goggles, although this was not always the case. He kept his hair tied back in a ponytail.
Following Tosen was Toshiro Hitsugaya, the Captain of the 10th Division in the Gotei 13. Toshiro Hitsugaya is short, has turquoise eyes and short, spiked, white hair. He wears a standard sleeveless captain's haori with a green sash around his shoulders, held together by a round clip. The sash holds his Zanpakutō's sheath in place on his back and is tied to it at either end.
After the white haired boy was Kenpachi Zaraki, the captain of the 11th Division in the Gotei 13. Kenpachi is a muscular Shinigami with a wild and aggressive appearance that fits his personality. He wears a sleeveless captain's haori that has a ragged look to it. He styles his spiked-hair with small bells at its tips and wears a special eye patch on his right. He has green eyes, pronounced hairless eyebrow ridges and a huge scar running down the left side of his face. He is also one of the tallest Shinigami, towering at 202 centimeters. His squad specializes in Melee Combat: Swordsmanship.
After the brute looking man was Mayuri Kurotsuchi, the Captain of the 12th Division in the Gotei 13 and 2nd president of the Shinigami Research Institute. Mayuri's appearance has a very skeletal look to it with a skull-like visage. His face is painted entirely white with the inner portion of his face painted black with the exception of his nose. His eyes are a golden color and he constantly bares his teeth giving the appearance of him constantly smiling. Both his ears are seemingly replaced with stubbed golden cones. His fingernails are blue and, with the exception of the fingernail on his right middle finger, are all short. The one long fingernail is as long as the finger itself. He also wears a white hat with two ends that point to his right and a large purple scarf around his neck. His whole body, even his face and hands, has been painted black and white. His squad specializes in science.
And finally there was Jushiro Ukitake, the captain of the 13th Division in the Gotei 13. Ukitake is a tall man with a somewhat emaciated appearance. His hair is worn long, almost reaching his waist. He wears it parted on the left side with one long piece that tends to fall over his right eye. He has green eyes. Ukitake wears the common Shinigami uniform with a long sleeved captain's haori, and a crimson lining. He wears a narrow white obi, in which he secures his Zanpakuto.
Genryusai scanned the gathered members in front of him before addressing them. "I have gathered you all here on the orders of Naruto-sama. He wanted to re-establish a system that was once created with a few changes. Apparently there are now hollows here like the ones in the memories we received of the original versions of us. Since there are no hollows, we will function as an army. Based on the information we have at our disposal, we will shape this place into an army of some sort. He wasn't exactly clear about this because he wanted us to come together to form something. Unlike the soul society, there will be no Central 46 to tell us how to run things. Any choices we make will depend on what the majority of us has decided meaning please think carefully. Now with that out of the way, we will begin making some changes to fit that of the shinobi world." Soon the 13 powerful figures began making decisions that would make an impact on the shinobi world later.
In Konoha we find a gathered group in Konoha's chambers where decisions regarding Konoha in any form was discussed depending on the situation that is. Currently the council members from but civilian and shinobi side, Elder advisors, and the Hokage were gathered around a large O-shaped table to discuss team placements for the new genins that graduated. Sitting in the bottom center of the O formation was the Hokage Hiruzen Sarutobi and his three Elder Advisors Danzo Shimura, Koharu Utatane, and Homura Mitokado.
Homura is depicted with grey hair, a beard, glasses as well as a constant frown that he's always worn, even in his youth. He also has a strong jaw-line a facial structure he has retained even in his old age. As a member of the Konoha Council, he wears similar garbs to those that Hiruzen would when acting in his capacity as Hokage.
Koharu is described as an elder woman with her hair is pulled back in a twin bun locked by a traditional Japanese hair pin with two pearls dangling off the side. As a member of the Konoha Council, Koharu wears a simple long kimono, closed by an obi, a jacket, and a sash over it. Koharu has also taken to squinting, barely opening her eyes at any point in time.
Danzo appeared as an old frail man, who would normally walk with a cane. He had black shaggy hair, and his right eye is kept bandaged. Danzo has had an x-shaped scar on his chin ever since his youth. He wore a white shirt, with a brown robe over top of it covering from his feet, to just over his right shoulder.
Surrounding the Hokage and Elder Advisors were the council members from both civilian and shinobi side. The shinobi side consists of major clan heads of Konoha that has strong influence over Konoha. The civilian side consists of rich civilians that managed to gain power through any means necessary whether it was sleeping with someone, earning their way honestly, or through evil schemes. It was because of this that the civilian side always had different faces. The shinobi side on the other hand changed when they were ready to step down allowing next in line to take place or death. There were a total of 9 shinobi clan with power right now and 9 civilian council members thus making things equal. On the shinobi side these were the individuals as following:
Hiashi Hyuga, head of the Hyuga clan and representative of the Hyuga clan. He has long, black hair and featureless white eyes like all members of his clan. He wore very traditional, loose fitting robes with a cloak much like the others of the Hyuga clan.
Tsume Inuzuka, head of Inuzuka clan. Tsume has a feral animalistic look similar to that of a canine. She has long spiky brown hair, vertical slit-like pupils, elongated canine teeth and nails. She also has the clan fang markings on her cheeks as well as markings over her eyes and a dark shade of purple lipstick. She wears the standard outfit of a Konoha shinobi.
Shibi Aburame, head of the Aburame clan. Shibi, like all members of his clan, has his eyes obscured by dark glasses which feature a single tassel hanging down from one-side. He has very spiky short black hair and a moustache. He typically wears a high collared outfit, while carrying a gourd on his back that is used for holding more kikaichu. He also tends to keep his hands in his pockets a lot.
Shikaku Nara, head of the Nara clan. Shikaku has two scars on the right side of his face which are probably his most noticeable feature. He has dark hair tied up into a spiky ponytail, dark eyes as well as a goatee. His ears are also pierced. Shikaku wore a meshed shirt underneath his flak jacket, a deer skin coat over that and hand guards.
Inoichi Yamanaka, head of the Yamanaka clan. Inoichi Yamanaka has long blond hair reaching into his back, which he wears spiky on top and ending in a long ponytail, blue-green eyes and strong facial features, which include a well defined jaw line. Inoichi wore the standard flak jacket over a black outfit, complete with hand-guards, forehead protector and a sleeveless red coat.
Choza Akimichi, head of the Akimichi clan. Choza has long red hair and has markings on his cheeks, with the latter being a common trait in the Akimichi clan. He wears a samurai like outfit which entails a black suit completed with armor that has the kanji for "food" on it. He also wears a rope belt, hand-guards, and instead of a forehead protector, a hachimaki tied around his head.
Kakashi Hatake, temporary head of the Uchiha clan until Sasuke Uchiha becomes of age. He was the only one in the village or only one known to possess the Uchiha bloodline. He is a tall, fit ninja, is characterized by his tall and spiky white hair, forehead protector regularly covering his scarred left eye, and his chronically visible mask. He wore Konoha's standard jounin uniform.
Jun Haruno, head of the Haruno clan. Jun has long and wavy pink hair, emerald eyes, and full lips. She is well-known for her curvaceous figure; her most distinctive feature of it is her very large breasts. Of course very few knew she wasn't born this way but achieved her beauty through various extreme surgeries. The few who knew about her know how she looked like before the surgery. She was currently wearing a pink Kimono and black sandals.
Arashi Uzumaki, representative of the Uzumaki clan while the others remained in Fire country's capital Hinokakugin. Arashi had long red hair, purple eyes, and fair skin. He wore an outfit similar to a samurai using the color schemes red and blue.
On the civilian side was a bunch of individuals that could change at a moment's notice. No one made an attempt to remember their faces.
"Today is the day we form teams with the newly graduated genins of Konoha. We will decide where each genin will be placed and who their sensei will be based on skills and knowledge. Without further due, let us begin. I want you all to present me with an idea as to which three genins should be placed under which jounin sensei and why. Before each and one of you are a list of genins along with their best skills and jounin-sensei available at the time. Feel free to take a look before deciding." Hiruzen watched with mild interest as the others scanned through the list.
"Hokage-sama I believe my daughter Sakura, Sasuke-sama, and Kasumi will make a wonderful team under Kakashi Hatake." Jun placed the list down and waited for a response of some type. "Sakura has genjutsu skills to distract enemies, Sasuke has assault skills that will allow him to attack them while their distracted, and Ino could interrogate the injured enemies for information." There were a few whispers amongst the group.
"I believe Ino would be better suited with Shikamaru and Choji under Asuma Sarutobi. The Ino-Shika-Cho has proven to be a great team from time to time. The last generation was said to be second to only the Sanins. I believe this generation of Ino-Shika-Cho will surpass the others before them." Choza finished his statement proudly.
"I believe Sasuke and Sakura will make a wonderful team indeed and under Kakashi to boot. As for the third person, I believe Kasumi Uzumaki who is supposed to arrive here tomorrow will make a wonderful team on par with the Sanins. I heard nothing but great things about the Uzumaki clan lately. I guess they were smart enough to separate themselves from the…..thing" stated Tsume with disdain. She had lost her beloved husband to the Kyuubi so it was natural for her to hate the demon trapped in human skin. She didn't believe for a second that Kyuubi was something that could be controlled.
"We're here to discuss the teams not Konoha's jinchuriki Tsume-san. As for your recommendation, I will take that into consideration as well as yours Choza-san" Stated the 'God of shinobi'.
"What about placing Hinata, Kiba, and Shino on a team under Rin Inuzuka or Kurenai Yuhi. They could make the perfect tracking and locating team. Kiba has heightened sense of smell, Shino has his allies, and Hinata has her byakugan. I'm sure this combination will be something we should consider." Shibi pushed his glasses up more after he was finished with his statement. Hiruzen nod his head agreeing with his logic.
"Yes I see some wonderful ideas going around but what will the final decisions be?" Hiruzen continued scanning the room in interest. Danzo seeing the others deep in thought decided to add his own input as to what the team should be like depending on their skills.
"While those teams sound very nice indeed, I believe it's time for a change Hokage-sama. I'm sure our enemies are prepared for another Ino-Shika-Cho group or another group similar to Hinata, Kiba, and Shino. We need to change things around to catch our enemies off guard. Also there are flaws in these teams that could be used against us. The tracking team Shibi suggested sounds good but what will happen if that team falls into a bad situation involving powerful enemies. I think we should mix the skills up so each team could be balanced. Why have an all tracking team when we could have a tracker, an assault, and a retraining type fighter?" There were whispers amongst the group once again. Shikaku yawned gaining the attention of everyone. They knew he was about to speak having been around him long enough to know him.
"Danzo's right about the situation. Our enemies would have prepared for re-creation of several teams we had in the past. Besides we can't keep using the same teams over and over. It'll lose the element of surprise. With that being said, I believe a team consisting of Shikamaru, Hinata, and Yakumo under Asuma will be a wonderful idea. Shikamaru has restraint and strategy, Hinata has her byakugan and her gentle fist, and Yakumo has genjutsu." There were whispered amongst the crowd. Some agreed with changed while others disagreed.
"Well let's hear your other idea Nara-san." Hiashi leaned forward eager to hear what other ideas Shikaku had. Shikaku then began telling his idea of a team and the reason for each one. Some of the members agreed with his ideas while an equal amount disagreed stating that they should follow tradition. It didn't take long before an argument broke out about whether or not they should change their tradition in selecting teams. The council members fired off reasons as to why or why not they should uphold tradition. In the end, they decided to re-create old teams and follow tradition. The teams Hiruzen recorded went as followed:
Team 1-6 (*Not important*)
Team 7: Kakashi Hatake
Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, and Kasumi Uzumaki
Team 8: Kurenai Yuhi
Hinata Hyuga, Kiba Inuzuka, and Shino Aburame
Team 9: Last year's team Guy
Team 10: Asuma Sarutobi
Shikamaru Nara, Choji Akimichi, and Ino Yamanaka
Hiruzen stared at the list with a little disappointment in the team assignments. It would seem that traditions were something they weren't willing to let go. He really did like the ideas Shikaku came up with but others wanted things to remain the same stating that what if things didn't work with the new arrangements. Did they have so little faith in the genins? He shook his head of those thoughts as if didn't matter anymore. The teams have been selected and the decision was final. The only thing left to do was dismiss everyone and head back to his office to announce the teams to the jounins. From there they would work their magic weeding out genins that need to be sent back to the academy for more training. With the way things are outside the village, he wanted to make sure each genin were ready for the world outside of Konoha. He was not going to send a genin that believed their ready to an early death as long as he remained in the office.
He had seen many genin deaths during his life time especially during war time and it wasn't a pretty sight. It was painful for the genin's family members and friends and often led to suicide depending on the person. There was also the fact that most genins were around the age of 13 so they were still very young and had a long life ahead of them. It was a sad fact that he outlived so many genins combined. However that was the past. This is now and he would make sure each genin was prepared physically and mentally for the outside world. He stood up gaining everyone's attention.
"This meeting is now over. You may all dismiss yourself. I'll be heading to my office to brief the jounins on their teams. I'm sure they're all eager to hear which teams they'll be receiving." Hiruzen turned away from the others and walked out the room. The others slowly made their way out the room as well.
"Welcome back to Konoha Kushina-sama. We weren't expecting you and your team until tomorrow. Who did you bring with you?" The first gate guard scanned the children with keen eyes. The small gate guard was a chuunin by the name of Kotetsu Hagane. Kotetsu has long, spiky black hair and dark eyes; he also has bandages running over the bridge of his nose and has a light-colored marking on his chin. He wears the standard attire of a Konoha shinobi complete with a forehead protector and a flak jacket.
Next to Kotetsu was his partner and close friend Izumo Kamizuki. Izumo has brown hair, and dark eyes. His hair is combed down and always covers his right eye. He wears his forehead protector like a bandanna along with the standard Konoha shinobi outfit which goes all the way up to his chin and a flak jacket.
Kotetsu scanned the faces of the young ones until he recognized one of them. "Hey aren't you Naruto's twin sister Kasumi? Yes I recognize you but man you really grew up. If it wasn't for the red hair, you two would look…" He shook his head at how close the two look alike. Her outfit consists of a red battle kimono that reached her thighs. She carried a black scabbard on her back containing a Kodachi with a black blade, red handle, and black ribbon. He turned to the others. "Who are the other guys anyway?" One by one they began introducing their names for him to record.
"Jun Uzumaki" replied the female mystery. Jun had long red hair tied in a single long braid that extends to her thighs, fair skin, and blue eyes. Her outfit consists of a black battle kimono that reached her thighs. She carried a black scabbard on her back containing a Kodachi with a black blade, red handle, and black ribbon.
"Dante Uzumaki" Dante was a young boy with straight, shoulder length red hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. He wore black shinobi pants, red long sleeve shirts with a black swirl on the back, and samurai sandals. He carried a black scabbard on his hip containing a Kodachi with black blade, red handle, and a black ribbon.
"Jin Uzumaki" Jin was a young boy with light red spiky hair that reached his shoulders, red eyes, and tan skin. He wore black shinobi pants, blue long sleeve shirts with a black swirl on the back, and samurai sandals. She carried a black scabbard on her back containing a Kodachi with a black blade, red handle, and black ribbon.
Kotetsu recorded the names down before allowing them in. "Go ahead in and welcome to Konoha guys. I'm sure the Hokage's done with the team selections by now so you should be able to see him." Kushina walked through the gates without responding. Kotetsu frowned slightly as the Ice queen walked passes them. He leaned over to his partner and whispered to him. "Damn she hasn't changed at all."
Izumo couldn't do anything but agree. "No she hasn't but that's not our problem. Now look busy, someone's coming."
Kushina scanned the area around her as she led her daughter, niece, and nephews to the towers where she and her team would be reinstated as Konoha genins and a team as well. She had an agreement to allow one of Konoha's jounin to train her daughter while allowing her to keep her niece and nephews under her. She was curious as to who her daughters sensei would be not that it showed. She would simply wait to find out who the sensei would be. Right now getting reinstated and getting a hold on Minato's mansion were here first objectives. She looked up at the towers which were her destination not paying attention to the whispers around her. She simply walked pass them without a care in the world. Several people moved away from her and her icy attitude.
"Naruto-sama, I'm here with the information I've gathered from the west as you asked sir. The others are still gathering information." The man bowed his head slightly once he was finished. He was described as an average sized man with brown hair, brown, eyes, and fair skin. He wore simple civilian clothes and had a civilian job located in the west. This was the perfect spy agent created by Naruto and unlike a lot of things he re-created and improved; this was his own work of art. The agent was an artificial human life with a computer as a mind. They did exactly what they were programmed to do plus unlike normal human spies, they were able to record a lot of information matching that of a computer.
Naruto stood up with the help of Nemu and Nozomi and stretched a bit. He returned his attention to one of many spies. "Give me an overall report of the West that you were able to gather."
"The violence in the west is increasing at a staggering rate sir. At the rate it's at, the violence in the West will pour into the East. Since there are no borders preventing them, it won't be long before they start coming over here. I've estimated about 3 years or so sir." Naruto took the next few minutes to think about what he could do with the new information he received. Nemu and Nozomi stared at Naruto as his mind processed the information and his next move. As soon as he was done, he eyes went wide.
"Alright Agent 55, you may return back to gathering information." He turned to Nemu and Nozomi with a smile as the agent opened a small portal that would lead him back. "I think I found a true purpose for my forces ladies. We could act as a buffer for the East and the West. I'll move my second copy of Seireitei there and have the others move there. The captains will have something to do other than sitting in a dimension while their skills slowly dull away. They'll be able to keep their skills sharp for any occasion. Not only that but they'll have their forces to put to work especially Second division. We'll be able to use our prison cells for dangerous criminals. I'll alert the others of my decision." Nemu and Nozomi seemed interested with his plan. Nemu's smiling face changed to a questioning look when something Naruto said confused her a little.
"Naruto-sama, what do you mean second copy of Seireitei? I thought you only created one copy of it." Naruto scratched the back of his head when he realized that he didn't tell the others.
"I forgot to mention that I had two copies of Seireitei built. At first I was only going to create one but then I thought about it. What if somehow Seireitei blew up because of an experiment gone horrible wrong? So I created two copies in case the first one blew up or something bad along those lines that would that make it unusable. I'm glad I created it though because we could use it for our new place. We'll have everything prepared within 2-3 months." A smile graced his lips. "Let's head back to Seireitei so we could begin."
With that being said, Naruto, Nemu, and Nozomi traveled back to the apartment to use their special teleportation. This was the only way to get to Seireitei until Naruto finished creating a portal usable for him and his forces only. Once that was finished, he would destroy the one connected to his apartment making it impossible for anyone else to travel there. He estimated about another month before his work was complete. On the way there, they passed dark whispers like last time which he was about to ignore until one of them said something that caught his attention.
"Hey guys I heard Kushina came back with her daughter. You think she's here to finish the demon?" By now Naruto's attention was on the whispers.
"They all had swords with them. They're probably here to exterminate that thing."
"Yes it all makes sense now. They left the thing to train on their own."
"I heard they came here to become shinobi of Konoha. This means that they'll be able to keep us safe from the demon. Since the Hokage's influenced by the demon, we can't kill it without suffering at the hands of our Hokage."
"We'll have to wait until the demon tries something to get him killed. With the Uzumaki around us, we might have a chance to have that thing killed should it do something against us. We'll have to sit and watch him closely until he screws up." All eyes went over to the demon. Naruto had heard enough by now. His eyes turned cold at the thought of his former mother. Nemu and Nozomi saw that look and grew concern. They were well aware of Naruto's past and knew how much bitterness he held against his former clan and especially his immediate family meaning mother and sister for abandoning him. They said nothing as they traveled to their destination. They would wait until he relaxed away from Konoha before taking him to relax somewhere.
"Here's the key to Minato's compound Kushina. Everything should be in tip top shape which I made sure by the way. The house has all the requirements of a home except food. You will have to do the shopping on your own." Hiruzen's voice was devoid of all emotion when speaking with Kushina which Kushina noticed. Hiruzen had always spoken to Kushina with kindness as if she was family but now that was no longer the case. She made a guess that he was still bitter towards her for leaving her son. But she had no choice for it was the will of the clan.
"You know it was the clan's best decision to-" Hiruzen held his hand up stopping her from going any further.
"What your clan decides doesn't matter to me. I'm a member of the Sarutobi clan so unless it affects my clan then there's no point in mentioning it to me." Kushina stared at him while maintaining her cold expression.
"But Naruto is-"
"A civilian of Konohagakure, an orphan, and not a member of your clan so there's no point in bringing him up in your clan situation" interrupted Hiruzen. His face remained neutral as he said this. "Is there anything you would like to discuss that doesn't revolve around your clan Kushina?" Kushina shook her head and turned away motioning her kids to follow her. While she remained her cold expression on the outside, a small pain was inflicted on the inside. She immediately crushed that feeling. As head of the Uzumaki clan she had to make tough decisions that would help the clan. Everything she did was for the good of the clan.
"Let's go to our new home. Arashi-san will meet up with us and bring us up to speed with what occurred in Konoha."
"-and that is my plan for you guys as my special force" finished Naruto with a small smile. The others seemed interested in his idea to act like a buffer between the East and the Notorious West. Kenpachi grinned madly.
"When do we begin our duty Naruto-sama?" Blood lust radiated from the walking death machine. It seems that their personalities were that of the original too. Did they completely copy the originals was the question? He turned towards Toshiro.
"Yes Naruto-sama" His eyebrow twitched in annoyance even as he answered. 'That's very interesting indeed. These guys are almost like the real.'
"Sorry about that Captain, I was just testing a theory out." Toshiro's face was that of confusion as well as a few others. Mayuri was the one to explain things.
"He was testing whether or not we copied everything or simply of personality from the originals. Kenpachi's blood lust for battle must have brought that thought on am I right Naruto-sama?"
"Yes indeed and it would seem that you intelligence is high just like the original. Now could we stop saying the original since they don't exist anymore? From now on you guys are the originals so stop making yourself sound like second rates. You guys are more than that. If anything your more like their twins who so happen to possess the same thing. Anyway let's get back to the original subject. You will al keep the name Gotei 13 but should we keep the name of the place as well when we transfer?"
"I believe it would be a wonderful idea to keep the name Seireitei Naruto-sama." Naruto turned to the soft gentle voice belonging to Retsu. A small blush crept up on his cheeks when he remembered his mega harem.
"A-alright we'll use that name Unohana-chan." Retsu seeing his red face couldn't help but smile. She guessed that it had something to do with repopulating the soon to be Kazama clan. Not only would she carry his child but she would be one of many soon to be wife of Naruto Kazama. With her body created by Naruto, she would be able to bear a child like any other human. She and the other females of Seireitei had volunteered to bear children for him and marry him. This guaranteed for the soon to be Kazama clan to gain large numbers instantly. As to the male members of Seireitei, they would mate with human girls from the real world.
Naruto regained his composure and turned to Genryusai. "Alright old man, I decided to make you the in charge meaning from now on you will be the leader of Seireitei. With that being said, no one else call me Naruto-sama. It will either be Naruto for normal greetings or Naruto-kun for the ladies." He wiggled his eyebrow a little. The female captains blushed at this. "Also you men will travel to the real world to find yourself a human girl to you-know-what. There's no limit of the amount of women you can have as well." Most of the guys blushed at this. "I figured once you guys are there; why not build a village as well and call it Iron fist because we'll rule with an iron fist."
"That sounds like my kind of language." Naruto sweat dropped when Kenpachi said this. He was tempted to change the name once again but decided against it. He finished the meeting by telling the others that they should inform their men about the situation. Once he was finished, he left the room to find Nemu and Nozomi with smiles on their faces.
"Naruto-kun, you sure are unpredictable you know that?" Nemu's question confused Naruto a little so Nemu explained what she meant.
"Let's see, first you wanted to be a god but later that was no longer the case. When you came into contact with the Hogyoku, you started re-creating many things and inventing things without a true purpose. When you created us, it was to have an army but now it's to create a village and act as a buffer between the East and the West. It feels as though you're just using ideas that randomly pop into your head." Naruto was red with embarrassment by now. Nemu seeing this couldn't help but giggle. "So that's why you place Genryusai in charge plus I assume you weren't going to stick around Seireitei for too long."
"I like traveling around freely. A leader doesn't have the privilege to do that plus he'll be able to keep things in order. Also like you said, I don't try to plan too far ahead. I experiment with ideas here and there. Anyway the village will be my final idea for the second copy of Seireitei and my force. There's no point in keeping them waiting when they could be making some changes. Once the village is finished and the border walls are up, I will revolve my life around that village. There is nothing here for me in Konoha except hate and death wishes on me." Naruto seemed in deep thought for a brief moment but snapped back. "Anyway let's go the spa and relax." He led the two towards where the spa would be.
