I'm back!

Sorry it took so long to post anything, but I lost inspiration for a while but now I'm back and I'll set the record straight.

For my Raise of the Kaiser fans: I will NOT be abandoning the story, I just don't know what to do next, I was trying to think of how I can include Kyrie without straying too far from the main plot. I will update it sometime in the future, probably this month, but you'll have to wait.

Also for my Legacy of the Soul Society story, I'm not sure how to continue it right now, so that won't be updated for a while.

I made this story because of the other "Shards" fics, where Naruto finds Coyote Starkk's, Tia Harribel's, and Barragan's hollow masks in the Forbidden Scroll of Sealing, so I decided to make this one.

I also have ideas for other stories I'm going to do. One is a Naruto and Percy Jackson crossover fic, another is one I already started working on called The Lustful Fox, where Naruto has a big harem of woman that he will use to 'revive' his clan. There will be many, MANY lemons in that fic. There are also others but I won't tell you about them yet.

The young boy sighed as laid back against the trunk of a tree. He had just gotten done with his task to steal the Forbidden Scroll from the Hokage's Tower and get to the meeting spot his sensei told him about. The boy was not like other children, he never knew the feeling of having a loving family, he never felt the warmth of a mother's touch, and he's never known the feeling of a father's pride. All in all, it left him feeling…

Empty.

It left him feeling as if there was a hole in his heart. He couldn't find joy in anything and decided to put on the mask of an idiot to fool people and hide his pain from the few people that he knew DID care about him. Although the Hokage took care of him and he had the Ichiraku's, it could never compensate for the lack of a mother's or father's love.

He discovered he would get beat less by the villager's if he acted like a fool with his mask on. Part of the reason he wanted to become a shinobi in the first place wasn't to become Hokage like he declares when he has his mask on.

It's so that he can finally take it off.

He decided that when he became strong enough he would take off his mask and show everybody the real him. The real Naruto Uzumaki.

"Maybe I'll find a woman to settle down with and have a family with in the future." Naruto thought. "Nah, that probably won't happen."

Somewhere near Nami no Kuni

A 15 year old girl carrying a white rabbit suddenly sneezed, scaring the rabbit in her arms and making the man traveling with her turn towards her.

"You better not be getting sick Haku. I don't need a tool that will be useless because she can't get out of bed." The man told her gruffly.

The girl bowed her head apologetically, "I'm sorry Zabuza-Sama, I will try not to get sick."

"Whatever." He replied as he started walking again.

"Why do I have the feeling someone is talking about me? It's not possible since the only person I travel with is Zabuza-Sama, and no one else knows me." The girl thought before she moved to catch up to her master.

Back with Naruto

"Well I better get started on a jutsu." And with those final thoughts he opened the scroll and skimmed through it before he noticed a specific jutsu.

"Kage Bunshin no Jutsu? It uses more chakra than normal Bunshins do, which makes them solid instead of just an illusion like the standard academy Bunshin. What's this? It also transfers all knowledge the Bunshin learns to the user once they dispel, that could be helpful for training." He said as he read through the description of the jutsu that was written on the scroll. He decided to start working on the jutsu.

45 minutes later

Naruto panted as he watched the clones dispel. He spent 45 minutes practicing the jutsu and getting it down. He figured he still had time to learn another jutsu from the scroll before Mizuki-Sensei arrived so he went back and opened the Forbidden Scroll again. As he looked through the different jutsu he stopped as he noticed a strange seal.

The seal looked very complex but he could make out many of the kanji that made up the array. The unusual thing though was that in the middle of the seal there was a gothic styled '4'.

Under the seal he noticed another smaller seal that said 'Caution'. Deciding that he should probably open that one before the other one he quickly moved his hand over the seal and applied chakra to it. With a small puff of smoke a letter was unsealed and he opened it up.

Dear reader,

If you are reading this then that means you can look through the Genjutsu that was placed over it. That's good, that means you might be able to control the power that's sealed inside. If not, than Konoha might be doomed.

The item that is inside of the seal above is an item that was found in the Forest of Death one day by my brother. He thought that it was peculiar because it just appeared out of nowhere when he was training. The thing he found was a white bone-like helmet that had a horn on it. Seeing nothing wrong with it at the time, he decided to wear it.

That was his mistake.

When he put on the helmet, it felt as if all emotions people had disappeared and all that was left was despair, I know because I felt it too. That's when those two Senjus and I decided to go see what caused the disturbance in the village. When we arrived at the Forest of Death where we felt that energy we saw something that haunts me to this day.

There he was, my brother, although he was different. His hair was straighter than before, his eyes had green sclera with yellow, cat-like irises, and his skin become a pale white. That wasn't the strangest thing about him. It looked like he had thick black tear marks running down from his eyes, and his arms and legs were covered in what looked like black feathers, and he had two bat like wings coming from his back. But even those weren't the strangest things about him.

No, the strangest thing about him was the giant hole in his sternum. Running down from the hole in his chest was what appeared to be a black fluid reminiscent of blood, and there was a horrible feeling of emptiness and despair coming from the hole.

It was at that moment that my brother turned towards us and the next thing I know Tobirama was sent sailing towards a tree and the new demonic form of my brother was in his place. In my shock I had no time to react as he turned around and disappeared before reappearing in front of me and punched me sending me back into a tree. After that Hashirama, Tobirama, and I decided that we had to stop my brother before he moved to the village and destroyed it.

After a long battle which injured Tobirama, we finally managed to defeat my brother and the changes made to his body receded and the white bone like helmet laid on the ground next to him. It was decided that it was too dangerous to leave the helmet alone so Hashirama decided to seal it away within the scroll of sealing so that no one would be able to use it for evil purposes. However I decided to place a Genjutsu over it along with this letter to ensure that no one could unseal it. Since you were able to see past the Genjutsu that means either one of two things:

You are either a descendent of mine, or it means that you a descendent of Senju Hashirama, the Shodai Hokage.

I would like to think you will be able to control the power of the white helmet, so I am entrusting it to you in the hopes you will protect Konoha.

The seal is a blood seal which means that you have to apply your blood to it so that you can unseal the helmet.

Madara Uchiha.

Naruto was shocked, if what the letter said was true, than that means he's just discovered a power stronger than any of the Kages.

Without putting any more thought into it, Naruto quickly bit his thumb and applied it to the seal. He noticed that he could see the chakra that he applied to the seal and noticed it change from a light blue color into and dark black color with a green outline.

A small poof appeared and as the smoke cleared away he noticed that the letter was correct, a white bone like helmet with what appeared to be a single horn on it came into view. He noticed that there was a feeling of emptiness coming from the helmet and it seemed to be calling to him. His eyes glazed over and slowly, as if in a trance, he reached out to grab the helmet. He was just about to grasp it when…

"Naruto!" he was brought back to the real world by the shout of his teacher, Iruka Umino. Iruka was a young man around 23 years old. Iruka is a man of average height and build. He has brown hair that he keeps in a ponytail, dark eyes and a scar that runs across the bridge of his. He wears the standard Konoha shinobi outfit complete with forehead protector, sandals, and flak jacket. He was currently panting with an angry look on his face.

"Naruto! What were you thinking!? Stealing the Forbidden Scroll!? Do you have any idea how much trouble you're in!?" The Chunin yelled. Naruto decided to put on his mask again and gave the Chunin and big goofy smile.

"Hey Iruka-Sensei! Are you here to promote me to Gennin? I only had time to learn one jutsu though so I hope I still pass the test!" He exclaimed while scratching the back of his head like he usually does. Iruka was confused by the boy's actions.

"Naruto, what are you talking about? What test?" Iruka asked the young boy.

Naruto tilted his head in confusion. "The make-up test that Mizuki-sensei told me about so that I could pass the exam and become a Gennin." He stated as is it was the simplest thing in the world.

"Make-up test? There isn't a make-up test, so why would Mizuki-" Iruka's eyes widened as he heard a whizzing noise and quickly grabbed Naruto and pulled him down as a few kunai and shuriken embedded themselves in the spot he previously was.

"Well, well, it seems you're on to my plan, eh, Iruka?" They both heard and looked up and saw that the person they were talking about was standing on a tree branch holding a fuuma shuriken and had another one strapped to his back. Mizuki is man around the same age as Iruka. He wore the same outfit as Iruka does except he has his forehead protector in the form of a bandana around his head. Mizuki has silver hair and black eyes that were shining with arrogance along with a smirk plastered on his face.

"Mizuki, what are you doing? Why did you lie to Naruto?" Iruka yelled at Mizuki as Naruto watched with confusion on his face.

"Isn't it obvious Iruka? I want the power within the Forbidden Scroll so that I can gain it and become stronger than even the Hokage himself!" Mizuki sneered.

Iruka narrowed his eyes at the silver haired man. "It all makes sense now. Naruto! Grab the scroll and run!"

Naruto widened his eyes, "What? Why?"

"Because Mizuki tricked you! He told you to steal the Forbidden Scroll because he wanted it for himself! Mizuki's a traitor!"

Mizuki started laughing, "Don't listen to him Naruto! He's lied to you your entire life! In fact, you've been lied to by everyone in this village!" the traitor said making Naruto look confused and Iruka widen his eyes. "Would you like to know why everyone hates you Naruto? The reason they all glare at you? Beat you? And why they despise your very existence?" He said making Iruka's eyes widen even more in fear.

"Mizuki, you can't! It's forbidden!" Iruka yelled desperately hoping Mizuki wouldn't tell Naruto but it fell on deaf ears.

"The reason everyone hates you is because 12 years ago, when the Kyuubi no Kitsune attacked, the Yondaime couldn't kill the demon! No, the only way to defeat the beast was to seal it within something. But he couldn't seal it within just any item, no, he had to seal it within a newborn baby! And the baby he sealed it into-"

"Mizuki, NO!" Iruka yelled desperately.

"-was YOU, Naruto! The Kyuubi was sealed into you! You ARE the Kyuubi no Kitsune!" Mizuki yelled and started laughing at Naruto's shocked face.

Naruto froze as he processed what Mizuki told him. It all made sense now, all the glares, all the insults, all the hatred. It finally made sense. He was so wrapped up in his thoughts that he didn't noticed Mizuki throw the fuuma shuriken in his hand straight at him.

"Naruto, MOVE!" Iruka yelled as he noticed Naruto's prone form.

"Die Demon!" Mizuki yelled in glee.

Naruto was brought back to the real world when he heard a squelch sound and a warm liquid hit his face. He looked up and was shocked when he saw Iruka crouching over him as he had a fuuma shuriken embedded in his back.

"W-Why?" Naruto whispered as he looked into Iruka's eyes and saw tears start to well up.

"Because you are like me." Iruka said as he remembered something the Hokage told him.

Flashback

Iruka was kneeling before the Hokage as he awaited for the elderly ninja to start speaking. He had just gotten done with the academy after many of his students graduated.

"Iruka." The Hokage started.

"Yes sir!" Iruka yelled.

"You know about Naruto's prank on the Hokage Monument correct?" The Hokage asked to which Iruka nodded.

"Of course sir! I will punish him accordingly sir!" He replied causing the elderly man sigh.

"You have to see Iruka, Naruto didn't have anyone growing up. The reason he acts the way he does is because he wants people to notice him." The elderly man sighed again, "I fear for the boy's well being, I sense a deep emptiness inside of him."

Iruka was confused at this, there's no way that Naruto, the little ball of energy whose pranks are everyone's worse nightmare can have emptiness inside of him.

The Hokage seemed to notice Iruka's thoughts and lowered his head, "I know it seems unlikely, but I've noticed Naruto have his mask on for so long that even I don't know what he's really like. So please Iruka, help the boy out."

"Hai, Hokage-sama!" and with that, Iruka disappeared from the room.

"Why do you hide your pain Naruto?" The Hokage said before going back to his paperwork.

Flashback End

Naruto continued to look at his sensei in shock as Mizuki just sneered at the two.

"Pathetic, even after everything the demon has done, you continue to protect it!"

Iruka got off of Naruto and turned to face Mizuki, "That's where you're wrong Mizuki, Naruto isn't a demon." Mizuki glared at Iruka and unstrapped the second fuuma shuriken from his back.

"Then I'll reunite you two in the afterlife!" Mizuki said as he pulled his arm back.

It was at that point that Naruto remembered the helmet that he unsealed earlier.

"If I put the helmet on, I'll get stronger and defeat Mizuki." Without a second thought Naruto grabbed the helmet from the floor and slid it onto the left side of his head. It was at that moment that an intense pressure that was felt all throughout the forest and parts of the village crashed down upon them.

A giant pillar of a strange energy shot up all the way into the sky. The energy itself was black with a green outline, like Naruto's chakra turned when he unsealed the helmet, and both Chunin, along with everyone else who felt the strange energy felt as if they had no hope at all, and they were all filled with despair and a deep emptiness.

When the strange energy died down both Chunin noticed a figure standing in the middle of where the energy came from. When the figure finally came into view, both Chunin's eyes widened in shock.

Standing there was Naruto, only it didn't look like him. If it wasn't for the blonde hair and blue eyes, they would never of guessed it was him. He stood there with a melancholic appearance. He grew a few inches and is now at the height of 5' 2". His hair seemed to straighten out some, though it was still slightly messy though now he had multiple black streaks in his hair along with his natural blond color. His skin lost its tan complexion and was replaced with a much paler tone, similar to that of an Uchiha, and his eyes seemed to have become much more intense and instead of a round pupil, his pupil was replaced with small slit-shaped pupils similar to a cat's. Part of his bangs falls between his eyes and his eyebrows seemed thicker, though not to the point of Maito Gai. He has azure lines that descend from the lower part of his eyes. He appeared to have a frown deeply etched onto his face. He was wearing strange clothes: a white jacket, black sash, and a white hakama. However, his jacket seemed to have long coattails and the collar is rather high. He also had a white bone like helmet with a single horn on the left side of his head and, much to their shock, a hole going straight through his chest where his heart should be.

Mizuki seemed to recover quickly and he grinned at the boy, "So the demon finally shows his true colors? Looks like you need to be put down!" and with that, he threw the giant shuriken at the boy.

"Get out of the way Naruto!" Iruka yelled hoping the boy would run and save himself but was shocked when Naruto simply raised his hand towards the oncoming shuriken.

Mizuki was equally shocked when Naruto simply caught the fuuma shuriken in his hand as if it was nothing. He noticed there was no blood or cut on Naruto's hand either, further shocking him.

"Pathetic, you would think a Chunin would be able to throw better than that." Naruto said with an emotionless voice.

"N-Naruto?" Iruka stuttered as he gazed upon the changed blond.

"Yes, it's me Iruka-Sensei, now if you don't mind, I'll finish off Mizuki." He replied in the same emotionless voice.

"Heh, as if you could defeat me demon! Now I'm gonna finish what the Yondaime started!" Mizuki yelled as he lunged at the young Uzumaki.

Naruto simply stared at Mizuki with that same emotionless face before raising his free hand and pointing his finger at Mizuki. The next word he uttered would be forever engrained in the minds of those who heard it.

"Cero."

A green beam of energy shot towards Mizuki making him wide-eyed before he was completely engulfed by the beam. When the beam died down Iruka noticed that there was nothing left of Mizuki.

"Such power! But how did Naruto get so strong?" Iruka thought in wonder as he noticed a few ANBU drop down from the trees.

Naruto rolled up the Forbidden Scroll as he handed it to one of the ANBU who had purple hair and a cat mask on.

"Thank you for taking care of the traitor Naruto." The ANBU said to which Naruto just waved her off.

"You do not have to thank me, he had it coming to him for breaking an S-Rank law." Naruto replied in his emotionless tone.

"We will still have to take you to the Hokage's Office so that you can give a report on the events that transpired tonight." She told him making him nod.

Later in the Hokage's Office

The Sandaime sighed as he massaged his temples as he went over what Naruto just told him. He decided to give Naruto money equal to the amount of an A-Rank mission, and dismissed his ANBU and told them to take Iruka to the hospital. As Naruto was about to walk out of his office, Hiruzen called him back.

"What is this about Hokage-sama? I would like to go home and sleep if that's alright." Naruto stated making the Hokage frown at the boy's cold attitude and the way he addressed him.

"That's one of the things I'd like to talk to you about Naruto-kun, I figured that it's time that your living arrangements get an upgrade." He said making Naruto look at him in confusion. Hiruzen chuckled a little before pulling out two scrolls and tossed them to Naruto who caught them and raised his eyebrow at the Hokage. "Go to this address before you read those scrolls. I would like you to live there as your new home, though you can't tell anybody about it yet." He finished handing Naruto a slip of paper he just finished writing the address on.

Naruto nodded, though he was still confused by the Hokage's actions. He turned around and started walking away. "Oh, and Naruto?" he heard causing him to turn back towards the Hokage. "I would like an explanation to your new changes tomorrow as well. And you will also have to attend next week's team assignments. I have a surprise for you but you'll have to wait until then."

"What are you talking about? How can I go to team assignments when I'm not a Gennin?" Naruto said.

Sarutobi smirked at the boy he considers a grandson, "Well, seeing as how you defeated Mizuki who's a Chunin, along with sneaking past all my ANBU guards and taking the Forbidden Scroll I'd say you're more than qualified to become a Gennin." Hiruzen pulled out a Konoha hitai-ate and tossed it to Naruto, who caught it and examined it with the same emotionless face as before, though the Sandaime could see many emotions within his eyes.

"I guess I finally be able to lose that damn mask. Maybe it would be nice now having to act like an idiot." Naruto thought as he bowed to the Sandaime.

"Goodnight jiji, I'll see you tomorrow." Naruto walked out of the door missing the smile on Hiruzen's face at the fact Naruto called him 'jiji' again.

Hiruzen turned his gaze to the painting of the Yondaime "Minato, I'm sorry I didn't do a good job protecting him when he was younger but I will do my best to make his life better now that he's a ninja. Hopefully she gets better so that she can take care of him now." Hiruzen sighed as he turned back to the bane of all Kages…

Paperwork.

With Naruto

The newly changed blond was walking through the clan district of Konoha looking for the address the Sandaime wrote for him. "Where is it? So far I've passed almost all of the clan homes, why can't I find it?" He thought more than a little annoyed. Unknown to him, his eyes started glowing and he saw the air around the empty spot next to the Hyuuga shimmer for a moment before a large compound started to appear. Naruto's eyes widened "How did that happen?" he asked out loud not expecting anyone to reply.

"It should be obvious." Naruto quickly spun around and saw the head of the Hyuuga Clan himself, Hiashi Hyuuga. He has long, brown hair and featureless white eyes like all members of his clan. He normally wears very traditional, loose fitting robes with a long-sleeved, brown haori.

"What do you mean?" Naruto questioned the man. He remembers this man never harmed him during his childhood and even helped him out a few times.

"Well the only way the illusion around the compound would be if it sensed the chakra of the someone related to the previous owner." Hiashi said making Naruto's eyes slightly widen before returning to normal. He already knew he was related to either Madara Uchiha or Hashirama Senju, but now he's another step closer to finding out who his family is. Hiashi noticed the scrolls in Naruto's arms and chuckled, "When you read those scrolls all will be revealed to you." And with his part said, Hiashi walked off.

Naruto watched the man walk off before he turned his attention back to the compound and walked towards it. However, he was unaware of Hiashi's thoughts at the moment.

"I'm sorry I couldn't honor our deal Minato, but the Hyuuga elders wouldn't allow me to, but I will see to it that the boy gets the proper help he needs now." Hiashi thought with determination in his eyes.

Meanwhile, Naruto had just gotten to the gate of the newly uncovered compound and noticed a blood seal on it and sighed, "Is today National Blood Seal Day or something?"

He quickly pricked his finger and applied his blood to the seal and notice it glow for a few seconds before the gate slowly opened by itself. Naruto stepped inside and noticed that even though it appeared no one lived here for a long time, there was a garden that looked like a Yamanaka's dream that looked as if it had just been tended to.

Naruto continued up to the front door and notice yet another blood seal and his eye brow started twitching. "Are you fucking kidding me?" he quickly applied blood to the seal and watched as it glowed for a moment like the one at the gate before he heard a small click noise indicating it was unlocked.

As Naruto stepped into the house he noticed that it was fully furnished and there was no dust on any of the furniture. He also noticed that there were a few pictures on a shelf on the right side of the room and noticed the majority of them included a spiky blond haired man and a beautiful red haired woman. When his gaze lingered on the pictures of them he felt a strange pull on his heart, which is strange to him since he still had a hole in his chest. He took notice of the couch on the center of the room and walked towards it. As he sat down, he quickly turned his attention to the scrolls in his hands and quickly opened the first one, a yellow scroll with the Konoha symbol on it.

Dear Naruto,

If you're reading this than that means Sarutobi believes that you're ready to know about your heritage. The first thing you must know is that I am the Yondaime Hokage and Yellow Flash of the Leaf, Minato Namikaze, though you can just call me dad.

Now I know what you must be thinking, 'Oh my Kami, my tou-san's the Yondaime!' But please, bottle your excitement until after you read the letter.

Naruto developed a sweatdrop from this before he went back to reading the letter.

I'm guessing that you already know about the Kyuubi sealed inside of you, so I'll skip the events of that night. I just want you to know that I couldn't ask another parent to give up their child for the sealing, as what kind of man would I be if I asked another family do something that I'm too scared to do. I just want to let you know that your mother and I did in fact love you, in fact when she found out she was pregnant with you she cried tears of joy.

Your mother's name is Kushina Uzumaki, she has beautiful red hair and came from a land of Whirlpool, which was known for their fuinjutsu.

Naruto paused at this part and looked towards the pictures again, or more specifically at the red haired woman in them, "So that's my Kaa-san? She's so beautiful."He whispered with a smile appearing on his previously emotionless face before turning back to read the rest of the letter.

I have to go now Naruto, the Kyuubi is coming closer and I have to stop it before it can destroy the entire village. I hope you grow up loved Naruto, and I hope the people of Konoha see you as the hero that I wanted them to, but I fear that might not be the case.

There are a lot of other things I would have liked to tell you, but with how close the fox is, I won't have a chance to. At library in the Namikaze compound are the instructions to my two signature jutsu, the Hiraishin and the Rasengan. I hope you learn them and use them to protect the leaf, and hopefully be able to improve the Rasengan, as it's an incomplete jutsu. Goodbye my son, do me a favor and live a happy life.

Your Tou-san,

Minato Namikaze.

Naruto smiled at the letter and then turned his attention to the second scroll which he noticed was red and spiral designs, "Must be from Kaa-san." He stated with a fond smile on his face. He eagerly unrolled the scroll and started reading.

Hello Sochi,

You must have read your father's letter already so I'll just skip to the point. I love you my little maelstrom. The moment I saw you on the ultrasound machine at the hospital I immediately fell in love with you. I was so happy, I couldn't believe I was gonna be a mother, 'ttebane!

Naruto's eyes widened when he read that last part of "'ttebane!" as he had a verbal tick of saying "'ttebayo!" before he found the helmet.

Oops, sorry about that, hehe. I have a verbal tick of saying 'ttebane all the time, something I hope you don't inherit from me

Anyway, I just want to know that I did love you Sochi-kun, the entire nine months I carried you around in my stomach were the happiest times of my life. I couldn't wait to hold you in my arms watch as you grew up and became a fine young man, and give me plenty of grandbabies to spoil!

Naruto had a light layer of pink dusting his cheeks after he read that part but then noticed a few damp spots on the scroll. It looked as if they were, "Tear marks?" he questioned as he inspected them closer and notice that they were in fact from tears that fell on the page.

I wish I could've done all of tat but sadly, I couldn't. I'm afraid that I'm not going to see you grow up since I can feel myself slipping away Naruto. I'm going to die Naruto. And I can see that I won't be able that I won't be able to watch you grow up. I just want you to know that I loved you and am sorry for not being able to be with you during your childhood, as I can guess it will be rough. I'm sorry I won't be able to be there for your first steps, your first words, and you first day at the academy, but I want you to know that I have no regrets towards carrying you inside of me and giving birth to you. In fact, the only regret I have is that I won't be able to take care of you.

I also want to thank you Naruto. Thank you for being my son. Thank you for being in my stomach for nine months. And thank you for making me the happiest woman in the world when I held you for the first time after you were born.

Please Naruto, live a good life, meet a nice woman, or more if you're in to that Sochi-kun, and most of all, be happy.

Your loving Kaa-san,

Kushina Uzumaki

By the time Naruto finished the letter he had many tears lining his eyes, which he quickly wiped away, before he finally felt the day's events catch up to him and walked upstairs towards where he guessed the master bedroom is. His assumption was correct as when he opened the door he noticed that there was a very large queen-sized bed in the room, along with two night stands on each side of the bed, and a closet on the left side of the room. Those weren't the things that caught his eye though, no what really caught his eye was the photo of his father with an arm around his very pregnant mother who was resting her hand on her stomach where he was before he was born. There both had very joyful expressions on their faces making even more tears come to his eyes. After wiping them away he laid on the bed, and closed his eyes.

"Goodnight Tou-san, Kaa-chan."

Naruto's Mind

Naruto quickly opened his eyes again before looking around and noticing that he was no longer in his parent's bedroom, but was what appeared to be a different world entirely.

All around him was nothing but an endless desert of white sand, with what appeared to be dead trees scattered all about. There didn't seem to be any forms of life and he took notice of the four cylindrical pillars. Before he could try and figure out where he was, he heard a melancholic voice behind him, "So, how have finally come here."

Turning around he quickly took notice of a strange man. The man had a melancholic appearance. He has fairly short, messy black hair, pale white skin, a black upper lip, and green eyes with small slit-shaped pupils similar to a cat's. Part of his bangs falls between his eyes and he has distinctively thick eyebrows. He has teal lines that descend from the lower part of his eyes. His facial expression looks like he is almost always frowning. He wears a white jacket, black sash, and a white hakama. However, his jacket seems to have longer coattails than others and the collar is rather high. The man also had a white bone like helmet on the left side of his head and a hole where his heart should be.

"Who are you? And where am I?" Naruto questioned the man since he could feel no ill intent coming from the man.

"We are currently in your mind, little Naruto. And as for who I am, my name is Ulquiorra Cifer."

And DONE!

There's the first chapter of my newest story.

Also the girls that will be in Naruto harem will be:

Fem. Haku

Kin Tsuchi

Tayuya

Yugao Uzuki

Yugito

Kurotsuchi

There might be others but for now those are the ones that are in for sure. Also for those for think they know what Sarutobi meant when he said "I hope she gets better soon." If you think you know, please don't put it in your reviews since I would like to keep it as a surprise. When I reveal it however, feel free to brag that you knew it, I don't mind.

Well that's it for now seeing as I have school tomorrow so I won't be able to work on the story as much but I will update it in 2 weeks at most and a week at least

Ja Ne!
