Child of Prophesy
Chapter 001: Baby Jinchuriki:
Zetsu traveled through the earth and arrived upon the head of Sandaime's monument (Hokage Monument).
"I can sense Sandaime-sama! Let's go. We might be able to pick up Yondaime's hideout." White portion of Zetsu responded.
"Fool! We don't have to follow that old coot! Just pin down Kyuubi's chakra!" Black Zetsu scolded and told.
Konahagakure no sato:
Minato was in great dilemma.
What should he do?
And then he noticed that Sandaime Hokage had arrived.
"Sandaime Sama!" Minato exclaimed.
Seeing Hiruzen arrived, Kushina hoped that he would keep her request and might have found a way to restrain this bijuu.
And then, Kyuubi no Yoko roared in its full rage as it sensed Minato's Chakra signature.
"I'll restrain Kyuubi for now" Telling this, Kushina ejected the chains from her body and tied Kyuubi in a tight fixation on the ground.
Sandaime noticed that Minato and kushina combined a nin-barrier jutsu while Kushina was providing ninjutsu as a potent densed chakra chain and Minato was providing a barrier Dome connecting with every anchor of Chain that created pressure upon Kyuubi and defensive layer against any heavy ninjutsu attack.
"Sandaime sama, I am going to do what I should do. I am entrusting Naruto and Kushina on your care. I suppose you won't disappoint me Sandaime sama!" Minato said while starting to do hand seals. Minato was just looked like a man of iron and devoid of emotion while sticking various hand seals to form the required Handseals.
And Minato summoned a small cushioned cot with eight candles, lighting the side of the cushioned cot and in the middle, Naruto was laid.
Kushina sadly glanced over her beloved baby. And she never got chance to request Hiruzen to talk with Minato so that he could be restrained from self sacrificing because Minato had already decided what he would do.
"Minato…you are doing it!" Kushina never tried this seal but she knew the sequence.
Hiruzen noticed that some Jounin followed him and they were now outside of the barrier. They were trying to enter but couldn't.
Hiruzen indicated them to stay there and not to interfere in it. Then Hiruzen noticed a child on a small cushioned cot with Eight Candles on side.
"Minato…what…you are…!" Sandaime was speechless so to say. He recognized the sequence and then suddenly Shinigami apeared before Minato and the whole place became chilly and a great amount of spiritual pressure was fallen upon the area.
But the sorrow of a mother proved to be powerful enough.
"MINATO! You…are leaving me and your son alone!" Kushina was in verge of tears and sorrow. She had a great desire to have a lifelong happy family. Here all went to nothing but soreness.
"Don't be sad! You have to keep yourself strong for our son's welfare. I know I am putting too much responsibility upon your shoulder. But know that we are a Shinobi Family. We are bound to be sacrificed for our Home land's safety. Please, don't berserk on the matter because even after my death, I'll love you." Minato said while smiling.
Kushina was just crying and crying. She was in a great dilemma. But she also knew that without her care, Naruto won't be raised well enough in his father's wing.
"Minato, What are you going to do? Don't tell me you are intending to seal Kyuubi into your son." Hiruzen asked warily.
"Yes, Sandaime sama, my son will be able to hold kyuubi. He has my will and his mother's body." Minato said.
Minato then proceeded with his plan and sealed half of Kyuubi's chakra meant yin chakra with him and half of kyuubi's other chakra meant Yang chakra was sealed into Naruto through Hakke fuin. And the key was stored within A Taod named Geratora.
Unknown Underground Rocky Place:
"So, Kyuubi is now sealed in another Uzumaki?"
"It seems so" Telling that, Zetsu steadily sank into a twig of a tree which was nearby to the place where the sealing process of Kyuubi was done. Thus they arrived into the Stony cave through their own type of teleportation.
"You are right! Kyuubi was sealed!" White Zetsu told a resting masked man.
"Namikaze Minato did it and self-sacrificed for this. He used Hakke Fuin. A complex seal, forming with double layer of Shisho Fuin." Black Zetsu informed.
"I see! In that case, we have to snatch that baby from Konoha's possession." Masked Man said.
"Who will do it? Will you go again?" White Zetsu asked. "No, I won't go now. I'll have to construct Akatsuki through Nagato. But I think I have to manipulate a dark root of Konoha's Tree to activate my master plan. It could be quite a gruesome work!" Masked man told with a tiring sigh.
Konohagakure no sato:
Danzou was an older person of the Leaf village. He had a great influence on political matters and business men.
Everyone respected him as an Elder of the Konohagakure no sato.
But he had also a hidden identity to several ninjas. He was literally a war hawk, so to say. And there were no doubt that he had a platoon of specialized Anbu under his wing only.
But none could prove this so he was untouched though his section of specialized Anbu was banded by Sandaime but it is still active in dark.
This man was then facing a man who should be dead more years or decades ago.
"You claim yourself as Madara Uchiha. But you are not agreeable to show your face." Danzo said in calculative manner.
"And you are warning me of an organization that could be a hindrance to my plan, right?"
"Yes, and I also know that you are very keen to behold the Hokage Position." The Masked Man responded.
'I think I have to see what this masked man can offer me. After all, I again missed the Hokage position. Hiruzen again is Hokage!' Danzou thought out deeply.
"Okay, I'll listen to you. But don't think I believed you to be Madara." Danzou told emotionlessly.
"Well, I am not enforcing you to believe me as Madara. But I am Madara, indeed!" Masked man responded.
"Whatever, let's proceed with our plan, shall we?" So called Madara just chuckled when pronouncing this.
Kushina was in hospital with his baby jinchuriki boy.
During Kyuubi's rampage, few buildings were unscathed or less damaged. Konoha Hospital is one of them.
'He's a child but yet he's a Jinchuriki.' Kushina warily glanced over her child and caress him on his cute soft cheek.
Kushina softly smiled.
"He's a cute one!" Kushina whispered or murmured.
Kushina heard someone was heading towards the door. These days she became very protective. She knew it could be Doctor walking on the corridor in the hospital and the sound was from the walk but she just couldn't help but be protective of her child.
But she was releived when she saw that it's a nurse for a routine check up.
"Hello Kushina sama, How are you feeling, I think you are well, right?" Nurse tried to be cheery.
"Hi, Shizuka, I am fine now. How are you doing?" Kushina asked as it's a courtesy.
"I am doing fine too Kushina sama."
The nurse was checking up her nerves and blood pressure. Nurse found it as natural as a fine shinobi should be.
"Impressive! You are restored to your full healthy state. You healed up quickly so to say."
"Thanks!" Kushina smiled.
Nurse later left the room and before leaving, she told Kushina to take more rest and she could be released in the next day and Hokage sama would visit her in that day.
Yes, Kushina knew of Sandaime's reinstated declaration.
So, she laid beside her baby and caressing him with all her love.
Kushina was lying beside his baby. Suddenly a kunai was sailed through the air towards her spine. Only for her overprotective nature, she could detect the kunai in due time and deflected it with her kunai that was hidden under her pillow.
No sooner had Kushina deflected the kunai, Kushina was forced to stand and stop another attempt of direct assault from a masked man with kunai.
"YOU! You again have Come!" Kushina was almost growling in anger. For this man, she was then widowed. For this man, her child was a Jinchuriki.
The masked man didn't say anything but just backed off a lil bit and parried on Kushina's throat again. But kushina again deflected it. They such resumed a kunai- tai jutsu battle in the room and Kushina was never be succssfully forced to move from Baby Naruto. They are circling and dodging and deflecting and parrying in the room. The room was devasted. The shelves and drawer and various medical reports regarding her and her baby's condition were flying and scattering.
The masked man was irritated. He's trying to defeat Kushina on taijutsu in silence. But the room was not enough spacious and the interior had been already destroyed.
'The Uzumaki woman is really something else! I'd better leave now. Anytime, any jounin could come.' The masked man thought.
'But before leaving, I have to take my beast away!' Thinking that, the masked man used his special teleportation technique to phase through Kushina's kunai assault and even her body and jumped on Baby Naruto while trying to catch him without using his sapce time ninjutsu. This was his mistake so to say.
And so, he was electrocuted by a chakra surge from an effective barrier protection.
The masked man could easily take the Baby Naruto with his teleportation technique and he intended to do it but he was then punched from rear by Kushina even before he could re-jump into the barrier with his space time ninjutsu. And the punch was powerful enough to sail him through a broken Wall of the room. Every nurse and nearby Anbu came to investigate what's going on in the room. But the masked man then just vanished in the air.
Kushina hurriedly went to near his baby and saw his baby was still sleeping.
Kushina tiredly smiled and sighed.
'This Shinobi life is really against any peacefulness.' Kushina responded in his mind.
"Kushina sama! What had been happened?" One of the Anbu asked.
"I need Sandaime sama's presence. Please, inform him to come here because I won't leave Naruto here alone." Kushina told The anbu while looking on her only child.
"Hai" Saying this, The Anbu shunshined away though several were still there in shadow to look over her safety.
Sandaime was busy after the ramapge of Kyuubi. He had to meet with every Konoha clans' head and Shinobi council. Then he had to send Jiraiya the information about Village's situation.
Then he was meeting with three elder again and they were also his teammate in the second shinobi world.
"Hiruzen! The boy needs to be molded in our strongest weapon. After the third shinobi world war, we were victorious but remained in very much weakened state. But that had been compensated by Yondaime himself. But he has already gone. We needed something to show off." Utatane Koharu told and she certainly had an intensity in her voice to enforce her utterance.
"I think Koharu is right that we are in weakened state and now in more as for we are devasted by Kyuubi's ramapge." Now Mitokado Homura concerned his feelings to Sandaime.
"Give the child to me. I'll raise him adequately. He could be a force to fear if he would be put under my wing." Shimura Danzou, another team mate and mostly his rival for Hokage post proposed him.
"But he has his mother to look after. I think it'd be the best if we entrust Kushina on this matter after all, the child is her own son." Sandaime stoicaly answered.
"But the boy now contains something that should be concerned of us, the elders of Konoha, too. We certainly have something to decide when it relates to Konoha's Jinchuriki." Koharu heatedly answered back.
"Yes, it's true that Kyuubi's power is somewhat of Konoha's concern. But again, his mother, Kushina was the previous Jinchuriki of the same Bijuu. So, I decided to put The Child under his mother wing." Hiruzen stated sternly this time.
"In that case, I have nothing to say. But I must have to say that I certainly look into the matter…Hokage sama." Telling this, Shimura Danzou left the room, followed by Koharu and Homura.
Sandaime just sighed.
'They are really becoming hard to deal with.' Sarutbi Hiruzen, Sandaime Hokage tiredly thought.
Then he suddenly sensed an anbu coming towards the office using shunshin.
"Hokage sama! Kushina sama is eager to see your presence in her hospital room as soon as possible. There was a problem regarding Kushina sama and her baby boy." Anbu infromed hokage stiffly.
"Okay, I am coming!" Hiruzen told and the Anbu just vanished in puff of smoke.
Uzumaki Kushina was shifted to other tidy cabinet of Konoha Hospital while the previous one was emptied for future investigation.
Hokage was led to Kushina's new cabinet.
"Kushina! I heard you were attacked by someone." Hiruzen asked. Wariness could be seen on Hiruzen's face. Hiruzen glanced over Baby Naruto.
"Sandaime sama, my baby was attacked again! Didn't I tell you about the main person behind Kyuubi attack?" Kushina told.
"Yes. You told me…So he came again." Hiruzen told himself rather than he asked Kushina.
"And I think he knew that Kyuubi was sealed inside Naruto. I think someone inside us was leaking information." Kushina told Hiruzen.
"It seems so. But you fought against him this time? Are you okay?" Hiruzen asked.
"Yes, Hokage sama, I am okay. But please, Hokage sama I don't want to lose my baby. Please, incorporate some trusted Anbu…very very trusted Anbu so to say" Kushina told Hiruzen as if she was so much freaked out of losing her only baby.
"Ok Ok, kushina, I'll see into it. I think you are well enough to be released from Hospital, right?" Hiruzen asked.
"Hai, hokage sama, I am alright." Kushina affirmed him.
"In that case, Kushina, you may take Naruto with you to your home." Hokage said. Hokage glanced over the Doctor beside. "Isn't it okay, Doc?" Hokage asked for confirmation.
"Hai Hokage sama. Kushina sama may leave along with her Baby boy. They both are stable enough to be called as normal." Doctor declared while analyzing the main copy report.
"So, Kushina, you may leave. I am leaving too." Telling this, Hiruzen left the room.
Hiruzen Sarutobi later signaled two Anbu to follow Kushina.
Kushina reached to her home.
She laid Naruto on the Big cot where both she and her husband used to lie.
There was a small cover with pillow for Naruto, beside this, a big pillow was on the cot.
She glanced over her cute baby.
'He's adorable!' Kushina again murmured.
Kushina's face darkened remembering Minato.
'He was so eager to be a father. He was so glad to hear that he would become Father. I was so obsessed with having a happy Family…Now, these had all gone away. I am all alone…except my li'l baby Naruto!' Kushina became nostalgic seeing the cot and cute face of Naruto. She was crying silently.
'This pain! It'll never go. But I have to strengthen myself for my son. Minato entrusted me. I have to raise him appropriately.' Kushina thought and vowed silently.
"Don't worry my son. I won't leave you!" Kushina murmured and started some hand seal to activate a barrier around the cot.
'I need to cook for dinner.' Kushina thought.
Konoha Shinobi Council:
There was ellipsoid table in a stony room. There are two doors in the room and no window. The doors situated to each other's opposite side.
In the room, there were clan heads and Konohagakure's elders. There were also several Civilian persons mostly rich business men.
The main chair was empty. There would sit Hokage himself. Everyone was murmuring with one another about village's condition.
Suddenly, a door opened and Sandaime Hokage entered into the room with two Jounin following him.
Hokage hiruzen sat on his couch and glanced over everyone in the room.
"Here, everyone has been called for hearing a finalized decision that I have been taken for the village's welfare." Hiruzen Sarutobi said.
"What is it, Hokage sama!" Naara Shikaku asked.
"Firstly, I wanted to enact the old security plan that was activated during Shodai's time." Hiruzen told.
"The plan was created for village security! But it was banned by Nidaime's time during the war. Later, that security plan of Shodaime's was never enacted." Hiruzen informed.
"Secondly, I want to create a new treaty with Suna. I am going there with an Anbu and a Jounin."
"Thirdly, the new announcement of Yondaime's legacy and his relation with the Kyuubi Jinchuriki." Sandaime told.
"And lastly, there's a spy among our Jounin ranks." Hiruzen told.
Everyone was astonished and became aware too. Hiruzen could notice the Inuzuka clan Head's attempt to smell something new, something suspicious.
"Well, I think during my absence, Shimura Danzou will be an acting Hokage." Hiruzen asked.
"I apologize; Hokage sama but I cannot do this now." Shimura Danzou told.
"...Okay, in that case, Shikaku, you will be an acted Hokage!" Hiruzen told before gauging Danzou with his eyes.
"Hai Hokage sama!" Shikaku affirmed that he would act a Hokage instead of Sarutobi Hiruzen. 'How troublesome! Now I am stuck in paper work!' Though Shikaku was positive to agree, he was still groaning in his mind!
"Is there any opinion about it?" Hiruzen asked. The authority in his voice could easily be heard.
"Hokage sama, I am curious about Kyuubi Jinchuriki. What would be the announcement about Kyuubi Jinchuriki and Yondaime sama's legacy? Did he have any son or daughter?" A civilian Council man asked in sheer curiosity.
"You'll hear soon about this matter!" Hiruzen informed sternly.
"Are there anything else, council men?" Hiruzen asked one last time.
"No, Hokage sama." Everyone chorused.
"In that case, the council meeting of today is dismissed." Telling this, Hokage left the room. Soon, every council member left the room.
Danzou returned to his base.
'I need to evaluate the truth behind the man's information.' Danzou thought.
'And Hiruzen was suspiciously eying me. Was he suspecting me for a possible Spy? But he will be leaving the Fire country. This should be my opportunity to snatch the boy. But the time is not yet perfect. I need Orochimaru's assistance. He's researching that matter for quite a while!' Danzou thought while entering into his compartment.
Danzou noticed that a root agent came and bowed before him.
"What is it?"
"Orochimaru arrived in the waiting compartment of the southern cave approximately half an hour ago. He's waiting in there." The bowing root agent emotionlessly informed.
Danzou didn't repond. He just left the base with a shunshin and later Danzou was found entering into the waiting compartment of the southern cave which was in southern side of fire country.
Seeing the Danzou entering into the compartment of the very deep of the cave, Root agents bowed with due respect.
Danzou noticed Orochimaru was sitting on the couch in the compartment.
Seeing him, Orochimaru stood and told, "Greeting Danzou sama!" Though Orochimaru greeted, you could easily notice his snake like creepy laugh.
"So, What is the matter, Orochimaru? Shouldn't you be doing a research? I have sanctioned half of estimated money and necessary elements for the research. I don't want to lose my money and efforts in vain." Danzou told and he seemed a li'l bit perked up though it was not so visible but Orochimaru could easily detect Danzou urgency behind his voice.
'It seems he needs it very badly! Well, let's play with the old coot!' Orochimaru thought lecherously.
"Well, to tell the truth Danzou sama, I need at least two more years to invent the perfect blends out from it" Orochimaru told.
"Two more years! This is very long time!" Danzou was eyeing Orochimaru very calculatively.
"Yeah, I know it is! But I can provide you the pro version of it." Orochimaru offered.
"Are you sure it will work out perfectly?" Danzou asked.
"No, I am not sure. But my speculation tells me that it will work." Orochimaru told him.
"Hmm. Well, what else did you come for, Orochimaru?" Danzou asked.
"I want a boy from your wing. The boy's name is Yakushi Kabuto!" Orochimaru told.
"Why?" Danzou asked suspiciously.
"He's very much prodigious. I need him for medical expertise." Orochimaru told while eyeing Danzou seriously.
"Sorry! I am not giving any of my recruit to you for now. You have to finish your work on your own. I have already delivered what you've needed. I won't give you anything else from me. From now on, Orochimaru, I will take from you." Danzou told forcibly.
"I see! Well, I am leaving then." Telling this, Orochimaru left the secluded cave.
'He is not a man to be played! I have to be alert!' Danzou thought.
Uchiha Clan Head's House:
Konohagakure's one of the most powerful and prestigious clan was Uchiha clan. The present clan head of the Uchiha clan was Uchiha Fugaku.
He had two sons and a daughter. The older one was the daughter. She's now a Jounin. Next two were sons. Older of the brothers was a true genius. He had passed the academy at the age of 5, become Genin at the age of 6 and now he was chunin and he was 8 years old. He had a younger brother and only five months had been passed since his younger brother was born.
And this older brother was Uchiha Itachi and younger brother name was Uchiha Sasuke. Sasuke was named after a great ninja of clan war time, Sarutobi Sasuke, the father of Sandaime Hokage and previous clan head of Sarutobi clan of Shodaime's and pre-konoha era.
He was a powerful and skillful ninja so to say.
Sasuke's mother named him after this great man. She hoped that her younger son would be a great warrior like Sarutobi Sasuke.
Sasuke's father came in his house.
"Mikoto, are you here?"
"Hai, what's going on?" Mikoto asked her husband.
"Kushina's son remained untouched. The baby will grow under her mother's wing for time being!"
"That's good!" Mikoto smiled. After all, she was Kushina's friend.
"Hmm. Good for Kushina's sanity. She will remain loyal to konoha. But bad for Konoha's strength."
"I am sure Kushina can forge her son into a fine shinobi." Mikoto told and was still smiling.
"I also want to expect this from the son of Yondaime."
Suddenly Itachi entered into the room.
"Itachi, how is your training progressing?"
"It is going as you expected, Tou sama" Itachi sternly said.
"Where's Sasuke. Itachi kun?" Mikoto asked her son sweetly. Mikoto loved both her son very much. Itachi being older got more attention though. But Mikoto now a days, also looked after Sasuke too.
"He's playing in the Shisui's home with Shisui's cousin. Shisui's mother was there to look after them." Itachi informed.
"So, Shisui was also training with you, right?"
"Hai, tou sama. He's a close friend of mine, after all." Itachi told.
"I see!...Okay, you may leave if you don't have anything to say."
"I don't have anything to say, Tou sama." Telling this, Itachi left the room and entered into his own designated room.
Well, here, it ends but now, I am facing new problem. What should I do about Naruto?
There are three possibilities for me to utilize in this fic, dear readers.
One, Naruto was kidnapped by Danzou.
Two, Naruto was attempted to be kidnapped. I meant Danzou would try but somehow he wouldn't be able to.
Three, Danzou's real motive about Naruto was revealed before Kushina.
If you like this chapter and story too then you just can click on my profile and vote on the related pole! But be warned that these decisions have certainly the capacity to change Naruto's behaviour.
If there was any grammatical problem, you'd better mention me about that coz i m not so so so proficient in English :P
So see ya later, dear readers and give me some feedbacks.
