Chapter 1: Sasuke or Satsuki? Who is the Last Uchiha?
"Shadow Clone Jutsu!" Naruto called out his signature jutsu's name, creating over two hundred clones of himself. They were spread all across team sevens training ground; on the ground, in the trees, and even standing on the water.
The real Naruto stood in the center, surrounded by his own army of shadow clones. One of the clones, who was standing in a tree, yelled out to his clone brethren, throwing his left fist into the air. "Alright guys! Are you ready!?"
The other clones simultaneously cheered out loudly and ready for battle. "YYYYEEEEAAAAHHHH!" They all charged at the real Naruto, some running towards him with shurikens while others jumped down from the sky wielding kunai.
The real Naruto charged forward, taking on his own army of clones. He tossed three shuriken at the clones in front of him. The clones easily deflected them and continued to charge at the real Naruto. "You're gonna have to do better than that Boss!" The nearest clone said as he rushed in with a hundred clones behind him, kunai hands.
"Don't think I'll make it easy for you dattebayo!" The real Naruto said as he smirked and charged at them. He delivered a few swift kicks towards their stomachs making a few poof out of existence then he sent out a barrage of chakra enhanced punches. "Time to try something new, Wind Style: Air Bullet!"
"What!?" The clones yelled out as they got shot with multiple blasts of air. He had taken down at least thirty clones, but there was still an entire army to get through. What's even worse is that the clones are preparing for an attack. All the clones went through hand signs and called out the jutsu's name, "Wind Style: Air Bullet!"
Suddenly Naruto was hit with multiple blasts of chakra enhanced air. Or at least that's what his clones thought. When the dust cleared all they saw was a destroyed log. "Substitution!" One of the clones yelled out angrily, what he didn't notice was a shadow behind him, ready to take him out.
"That's right pal!" The clone only had enough time to widen his eyes before Naruto reduced him to smoke. "Wind Style: Air Bullet!" Naruto sent out five blasts of air, taking out three clones, with only two clones able to dodge Naruto's attack.
"Crap!" The clones said after being defeated with a strong punches to the gut. "100 clones left." The real Naruto said, panting from exhaustion. The clones were also panting as their chakra started to deplete.
"Well. . .one thing left to do." One of the clones said.
"What?" Another clone asked.
"Time to go explosive." The first clone answered.
"Exploding clones huh?"
"Now this is gonna be a blast." Another clone said as he cracked his knuckles.
"Ah crap!" Naruto said as he watched the clones come into him all at once, ready to explode. "Suicide bombers. . .really!?" He yelled out at them.
"Hey don't blame us! You're the one who learned the technique!"
Naruto's face froze for a moment. They did have a point, they were his clones after all. Naruto didn't have time to think about this too much though as the clones charged in, all ready to self destruct. Naruto continued to pant from exhaustion, he was almost entirely out of chakra. "Alright I think it's time to use it!"
Naruto closed his eyes, yelling inside his mind, "Alright fox! Time to pay your rent!" Suddenly red chakra poured out of Naruto's body, making it look like he was on fire. The Kyuubi's chakra radiated heat, so much that the clones lips were drying up, and they were still over ten feet away from him.
Naruto's nails grew into claws, and his canine's grew longer and sharper. Finally, his eyes turned from cerulean blue to blood red, his eyes turning into slits.
Naruto swiped his hand through the air, causing a shock wave to take out at least half of the shadow clones. One of the clones that survived yelled in shock, "Crap! He's gone Kyuubi!" That clone was imminently destroyed by Naruto jumping to where he was and slamming his fist into his face. Suddenly all the other clones surrounded him.
"Wind Style: Air Bullet!" "Shadow Explosion Jutsu!" All the clones called out these two jutsu, causing a massive explosion around Naruto. But what would surly mean death for any other ninja was nothing too life threatening for the number one knuckleheaded ninja of the leaf. The explosion expanded and released a shock wave, tearing down the surrounding tree's and making a small crater around where Naruto was last seen.
Naruto stood in the center of the crater. His cloths were a little torn and singe from the explosion. He wasn't much better, but the wounds were minor and were healing already. He would be at full strength again in about an hour. Naruto had sent a shock wave using the Kyuubi's chakra, canceling out the explosion around him, well for the most part.
"Well. . .That was intense. . ." Naruto said as he blew out a puff of smoke. He looked up and saw that it was already night, the full moon shining down over him. Figuring he had done enough training today Naruto started walking home. The cool night breeze felt good after hours of training, monstrous stamina or not.
Konoha was eerily quiet, if someone had dropped a pin it would have sounded like they dropped a baseball bat, but growing up in a ninja village made Naruto used to it. Taking his usual way home Naruto walked by Ichiraku ramen, wanting to get something to eat before he went to bed, only to find it closed. Ichiraku had a habit of closing late, in order to better accommodate ninja who trained until late and didn't feel like cooking, so for it to be closed meant Naruto had been training harder than usual. Disappointed Naruto let out a sigh "Guess it's cupped ramen tonight." Naruto continued walking to his apartment but after a couple of blocks he smelled something. . . funny.
Naruto noticed after his fight with Mizuki, who had revealed to him about having the Nine-Tailed Fox demon known as the Kyuubi inside him, that his senses have gotten sharper. So much so that he could tell a persons gender just by the smell. That's why Naruto had been training so hard. He wanted to train with the Kyuubi's chakra. While the Kyuubi's chakra was flowing through him, his senses were sharper than even those of the Inuzuka clan.
It took about a day for this effect to wear off, depending on how much of the Kyuubi's chakra he used. He had been training with the Kyuubi's chakra for only three weeks but had learned a lot about his new sensing abilities. One thing he learned is that along with their own scents every man and women had a second scent, one more pungent to those able to smell it. It told him if it was a man or a women. He still hadn't figured out how it worked but he knew the two scents were definitely for a man and a women.
That's why the scent present to him was very confusing. "That smells like Sasuke. . .but why is there a girls scent mixed in?" Suddenly Naruto's face turned from his confused to horrified. "Ahhh! W-What if him and Sakura-chan!" Naruto imagined the scene in his head. Sakura draped on top of Sasuke, their body's only covered by a dark blue blanket and each others arms.
Imaginary Sakura's face was as red as a rose as she gently whispers. "S-Sasuke-kun. . .I love you!"
Imaginary Sasuke's smirking face as he guides her face closer to his own. "Hmp, of course you do." He said, as if it was something to be expected. Their faces come even closer until their lips almost meet.
That's where Naruto shook his head, wanting to end the revolting scene before it went any farther. "No frickin way!"
Determined to stop things before they even get started, Naruto followed the scent to Sasuke's apartment. "Bastard, he took her back to his place!? Alright pal, that tears it!" Naruto jumped up and grabbed onto Sasuke's patio.
Ever since the Uchiha massacre, Sasuke has stayed in a apartment the Hokage assigned to him. It was on the second floor of an apartment complex about ten minutes away from Naruto's place. Sasuke had the same financial set up with the village as Naruto, although Sasuke's apartment was a lot nicer. The village supplied them with money every month to live off of until they graduated from the academy and could earn money from mission.
Naruto back flipped, doing a complete three sixty, and landed on Sasuke's patio railing. While he stood on the railing Naruto peered through the patio window, poking his head out from the side, trying to see what was happening. What he saw next was not what he expected. "What the?" Naruto whispered as he looked in.
He definitely saw what looked like Sasuke, but something was 'off' about him. He could only see his bare back, he had no shirt on at the moment, in fact the only clothes he seemed to be wearing were a pair of blue boxers, but they seemed to be shorter than what most guys he knew wore. He had an hourglass figure and his hair flowed down his back all the way to his butt and looked silky smooth, just as his skin did. Near the chest area Naruto could see their seemed to be some bandages bounding something but wasn't exactly sure what. "That weird, I don't see Sakura-chan in there" Naruto muttered.
Naruto shuddered before swallowing his pride and knocked on the door once. "Damn it! Why the hell am I even doing this?! Grr, it's cause I have no know idea if that bastard took Sakura-chan!" Naruto thought in a small fit of agitation.
After a few moments the door opens up revealing Sasuke in a sleeping kimono, but with something seeming a bit off seeing as how Naruto can smell the scent of a girl coming off him and that his hair was short again, clearly when before, it was down to his back. "What do you want dobe?" Sasuke asked in annoyance.
Naruto glared before taking a deep breath and narrowing his eyes at Sasuke, "Where's Sakura-chan? Did you take her? If you did what did you do to her teme?" Naruto asked in a slightly rapid speed.
"Why on earth would I bring that pink haired dead weight to my home? Do I seem like the kind of person who takes pleasure in her loud unholy voice?" Sasuke growled out, irritated by the questions.
"Then why do I smell a strong scent of a girl here at your place?! Either you're lying or something strange is going on here teme!" Naruto yelled in anger before taking a few sniffs of air discreetly.
Sasuke stared at Naruto in shock before going back to a calm facade and calmly said, "I don't know what you are talking about dobe, but there aren't any girls in my home. If there were I wouldn't be able to get a good nights sleep. So leave before I kick you out." Sasuke gave one last glare before turning and walking away.
Naruto huffed out and said while unconsciously drawing a bit of Kyuubi's chakra, "Fine, if you don't want to tell me I'll go to the Hokage, fellow ninja or not I will go to the old man since you could be hiding something dangerous."
Sasuke stopped in complete shock before tightening his fist 'Would the dobe really run to the Hokage for this!? That idiot wasn't supposed to find out like this', Sasuke thought in panic.
"Hey, I'm talking to you teme!" Naruto walks up and grabs onto Sasuke's shoulder and forces him to turn around while pulling off part of the kimono by accident, allowing Naruto to catch a glimpse of bandages around Sasuke's upper torso. "Eh?"
Sasuke quickly pulls back away from Naruto and glares heatedly at him while fixing the kimono to cover himself back up. "What the hell is your problem dobe?!" Sasuke yelled out in anger. "I can't believe he actually did that! That was too close for comfort!" He thought. "Listen dobe, if you don't get out of my home, I'll kick you out myself!"
"Oh yeah teme?! How about a little bet? We find a secure location and we have a spar, best two out of three wins. I win and you tell me why you have a strong female scent on you. You win and you can keep your secret."
"What would happen if I say no to this whole thing dobe?" Sasuke asked while thinking 'Since when did the dobe think things through so calmly?"
"Well you don't get a fighting chance to defend your secret and I go straight to Hokage-jiji."
"Crap. . .I can't let him go to the Hokage, the elders will force me into the CRA. Hopefully I can beat the dobe and keep my secret safe. . .I can't let anyone find out the truth. . ." Sasuke thought as he looked up at the dobe and sighs heavily, making it seem like he is more annoyed than worried "Fine, dobe, when I win you keep your mouth shut and get off my property, got it?"
Naruto smirked at his rival. "Bring it on!"
Sasuke, who decided to take them to the Uchiha private training grounds asked, "So dobe, how was it that you could "smell" a female scent on me? I know for a fact that you're no Inuzuka. So what's the deal?"
Naruto, who was slightly behind Sasuke faltered a little in his walking, because of him being thrown off by the question, and the fact that the teme is actually talking to him. ". . . .I guess you can call it. . .somewhat of a bloodline teme. I recently learned about it and asked the Old Man if he could explain what it did. . . ." Naruto said after trying to find the right words without giving anything away.
"You have a bloodline dobe? What exactly does it do besides your enhanced nose?" Sasuke asked curiously.
"I don't think it's any of your business teme, seeing as how I don't ask you how your Sharingan works." Naruto said a bit defensively. "Besides I don't trust you enough to actually give you ideas on how my bloodline works."
"Fine with me dobe, I don't care anyways." Sasuke turned his head, but only slightly. "Damn, something is definitely up with the dobe. . .but what?" He thought out of curiosity.
"Alright dobe, we can spar here, the training field is far away enough from the civilian homes so we shouldn't get interrupted." Sasuke said as the two arrived, both of them ready to fight. "Now to beat him and shut him up for good." He thought.
Before the start of the match, Naruto creates a shadow clone to stand off away from the fight to act as the proctor. "Alright, ground rules are the following no killing and whoever forfeits first loses. Got it?" Naruto said as he got into a fighting stance. "Now to find out what's really going on around here Sasuke!" He thought.
Sasuke scoffed as he got into his family's battle stance. "Just don't be complaining when I beat you into the ground dobe."
"Right back at cha teme!" Naruto shot back. "I'm not losing that easily!"
The clone looks at the both of them before raising his hand and asked, "Fighters ready? BEGIN!" He then pulled his arm back down quickly as the two fighters quickly shot at each other, both of them ready to deliver a punch.
As the two closed in on each other, their punches cancelled each other out forcing them to jump apart. Sasuke began some hand signs and called out "Fire Style: Fireball jutsu!" Sasuke cheeks expanded and he blew out a medium sized fireball towards Naruto.
Naruto quickly started his hand signs and cried out "Earth Style: Mud Wall Jutsu!" After the Mizuki incident, the Hokage had came to Naruto's apartment and and given him a scroll with the technique, thinking it would be helpful for him.
"What!?" Sasuke thought in shock as he saw a wall of mud rise up from the ground, blocking Naruto from his fireball. "When the hell did he learn that!?" He asked himself. "This spar might have just gotten more complicated than I originally thought. . ."
Soon after Naruto and a new clone jumped over the mud wall and had just finished making some hand signs, both of them calling out, "Wind Style: Air Bullet!" Soon a barrage of air bullets shot towards Sasuke intent on doing a decent amount of damage.
"Crap!" Sasuke exclaimed as he quickly used a substitution jutsu to safely get away from the oncoming attack. "How did the dobe get this strong? Was he hiding his true power during our academy years? If so then why?" Sasuke thought as he hid behind a training log to catch his breath.
"Hey Sasuke, if you're wondering why I'm much stronger now," Naruto started, freaking Sasuke out thinking that he had just read his mind. "I decided to take things seriously now! I'm not the same kid from our academy days"
Sasuke grunted as he heard this declaration and moved away from the training log. "Seriously or not, I'm still gonna kick your ass dobe!" He yelled out as he started gaining distance. "Alright, so this version of the blonde dobe is a bit more of a power house, gotta be careful. . ." He thought to himself.
"Where is he. . .?" Naruto muttered to himself, scouting the area around him, body tense with anticipation. "Where's the teme?" Soon with his enhanced hearing heard a whirl in the wind, he quickly took out a kunai and deflected some shuriken that were headed his way."There!" He then threw the kunai in the direction the kunai were thrown. At once Naruto heard a soft thud and assumed he hit his mark only to see that it was a log that he hit. "What the hell!?"
"Hyaa!" Sasuke yelled out as he came up from behind Naruto and roundhouse kicked him towards some trees and bushes. "Gotcha dobe!"Sasuke yelled out in triumph.
Naruto quickly flipped on his hands and landed on his feet quickly turning around and watching the teme with his smug look. "Lucky shot." He cracked his neck quickly as he sped up and delivered a punch to Sasuke's gut. "And here's the payback."
Sasuke gasped in pain and coughed up some saliva as he took the brunt of the attack. "H-how did he. . . .?" Sasuke managed to say to himself before e then felt cold metal press against his neck.
"Surrender teme, I got you this round." Naruto said in a serious manner as he had maneuvered himself behind Sasuke and placed a kunai against the base of his neck.
"D-Damn. . ." Sasuke got out, knowing he was in a pinch. "He's this strong!?" He thought, enraged at the idea of someone like Naruto beating him in a fight. "Lucky win dobe. . ."
"Luck had nothing to do with it." Naruto said as he removed the kunai from Sasuke's neck and placed it back in his holster. "I've just learned some crazy truth about myself. . ." He explained, half regretting some of the stuff he learned as his hand unintentionally went to his stomach where his seal was.
Sasuke wanted to question what he meant, but knew not to ponder at it. "Fine, then get ready for round two."
Naruto then jumped back to create a fair amount of space between him and Sasuke before taking out some shurikens. "Then bring it teme!" He then threw them at his rival.
Sasuke couldn't help but smirk at what had been happening. "Gladly dobe!" He quickly took out his own shurikens and threw them, to deflect the ones that Naruto threw.
As both barrages of shurikens bounced off each other, the two rushed at each other again, determined to win for their own specific reasons, but now knowing another reason that they both at least knew.
"I'M WINNING THIS FIGHT!" The both thought in harmony as they both delivered a punch to each others face.
When the attacks met, they each flew in the opposite direction with Naruto slamming against a tree and Sasuke falling into some thorn bushes near the Uchiha gardens.
". . .Ok. . .that hurt. . ." Naruto got out as he rubbed his back from it's soreness.
"Dammit. . .again. . ." Sasuke muttered to himself as struggled out of the bushes, not realizing that some parts of his clothes got torn. Sasuke soon saw that Naruto was still down and quickly took out some ninja wire from his pouch and rushed towards the dobe, unknowingly stretching out the tears on his clothes, slightly showing his figure, which was noticed by Naruto. Sasuke then wrapped the wire around Naruto's neck tightening it slightly, threatening to cut off his head if he pulled on it more. "Give up dobe?" Sasuke taunted.
Naruto, who was too shocked to move when he saw Sasuke coming because he was distracted by what he saw, soon snapped out of his dazed and growled out. "I surrender teme. . .this time. . ." He felt Sasuke releasing the wires around his neck. "Damn, I can't believe I lost focus like that!" Naruto thought to himself before looking at Sasuke, who was walking away to get some distance for their last round, noticing his waistline as it was curved inward. "Something is definitely off about him. . ." He thought.
"Time to end this Naruto!" Sasuke declared as he got into his clan's stance for the final time.
"Bring it Sasuke! You got me last time, but I won't fall for it it again!" Naruto said, getting into his stance again. Neither one of them realized that they both call each other by their first names.
Naruto then created some clones to distract Sasuke while he started some new hand signs. "I hope this works. . . ." He thought as he finished going through the signs, landing on the dog sign. Wind Style: Beast Wave Palm!" His right hand became engulfed in over powered chakra before he swiped his hand towards Sasuke, sending out a small shock wave right after it.
Sasuke, who had no time to dodge, blocked the attack the best as he could, which resulted in his shirt shredding to pieces due to the immense air pressure that was created from the attack. "Damn, I wasn't expecting that now I'll have to-"
"Wha?" Sasuke heard Naruto got out as he saw his jaw drop in shock and disbelief with a blush starting to appear on his face.
"Eh?" Sasuke looked at Naruto, confused at his expression. "What's with him? It looks like he's. . ." He then felt a draft coming from his chest and his hair tickling his back. "Oh no. . ." He fearfully muttered as he moved his head downward to see that his upper body was completely exposed as his two mounds of flesh on his chest were free.
Naruto, who stood there gaping like a fish quickly turned away not wanting to feel like a pervert before taking off his jacket. "Hey teme. . ." He called out.
In Sasuke's head, he. . .or should I say she, was panicking as she knew Naruto saw everything."W-what d-dobe?" She asked nervously before looking up and seeing Naruto with his head turned and presenting his jacket.
"H-Here, put this on before you catch a cold would you. . .?"
Sasuke nodded as she took the jacket, covering her ample chest that she was secretly proud of but also hated it at the same time. "T-Thank. . ."
Naruto looked towards Sasuke and saw that he, or rather she now had the jacket on as it made her bust look bigger, even though she was only twelve like himself, which he blushed at before he then carefully placed his hand on her back and gently led her back to her apartment. "Let's get you back home. . ."
Sasuke nodded, her head somewhat braindead from all that happened. "A-Alright. . .I'll explain everything there. . ." She said monotonously as she let Naruto lead the way.
"Now what do I do?" 'Sasuke' looked at Naruto's calm face. "H-he saw. . .everything. . ." 'Sasuke' muttered in a feminine tone, Too embarrassed to keep on looking at him. 'Sasuke' turned her head away from Naruto, a blush slowly forming on her cheeks without her realization.
Naruto made a grunting noise as he then opened the door to her apartment and led her inside to the nearest couch.
This made 'Sasuke' blush even more, so much so her face was completely red. 'Sasuke' crossed her arms over her chest, before remembering that she was using Naruto's jacket to cover up. She quickly ran out of the room and went to the back to grab a new shirt and swiftly put it on before heading back to the living room where Naruto was waiting in.
Once she reached Naruto she sat down on the couch and stared at her feet while trying to come with some way to get herself out of this mess without involving Naruto.
After about thirty or so minutes of staring at each other awkwardly, Naruto decided to break the ice, "So. . . Sasuke. . ."
"Hmm?" 'Sasuke' cocked one eyebrow, secretly nervous about what Naruto would say.
Naruto felt awkward but he knew he had to set things straight "Sasuke. . ." This was really gonna be awkward for him. "You're a girl huh?" He bluntly asked before mentally kicking himself.
'Sasuke' couldn't hide 'his' shock, fully knowing that Naruto got a good look at 'him' during the spar. "Y-Yeah? S-So what dobe?!" 'Sasuke' said, trying to hide 'his' nervousness, somewhat failing at it.
Naruto stood up, looking Sasuke in the eye. Suddenly a mischievous smile spread across his lips. "You know, you've got a really great figure, plus an actual set of breasts that any girl would kill for!" He openly said, trying to lighten the mood with some humor, not denying what he said was true.
Taken by surprise by the complement, 'Sasuke' blushed a bright red before looking away from him. "T-Thanks. . .I-I think. . ." She honestly didn't know what to think since she had never let anyone see her like this. To her, it was confusing, but strangely, she felt something warm in her chest thanks to Naruto's complement. For some reason it felt right to have someone, even if it was Naruto, compliment her on something other than how she was as the last Uchiha. "What. . .is this? This. . .feeling? What. . .is it, that makes me feel as if I need to be close to Naruto-kun of all people?" She thought, confused at what was happening to her, not realizing that she added 'kun' to his name.
"Uh. . .Sasuke?" Naruto got out after an awkward moment of silence between the two. "Is that even her real name?" He thought out of curiosity.
"I-It's Satsuki. . . and. . .please. . .please don't tell anyone about this. . .please. . ." Sasuke, actually named Satsuki muttered, tears running down her eyes, surprising Naruto as if she read his thoughts.
Naruto stared at Sasuke in disbelief, he couldn't believe what he just heard. Sasuke, or rather Satsuki Uchiha begging to keep a secret. Naruto nodded his head then asked, "Could you just explain what this is about? I mean. . .this is pretty serious. . ."
After a few minutes Satsuki took a deep breath, wiping away the stray tear and a few other tears threatening to fall. "A-Alright." Satsuki said feeling nervous about having to reveal her deepest, darkest secret that she has kept for many years for her safety to the most unexpected person she knew.
"So. . .how long have you been a. . .you know?" Naruto asked.
"A girl?" Satsuki replied as Naruto nodded his head. "I-I've always been a girl. . .and the truth is that I kept my gender a secret for quite a while to protect myself." Satsuki started explaining.
"Protect yourself? From what?" Naruto asked.
"The Clan Restoration Act. . ." She shivered at the name of the act before continuing. "I-It's said in that disgusting act that if I'm that last female of my clan, they would turn me into a breeding stock!" Tears started running down her eyes as they stained her clothes. "I don't want that!" She blurted out, more tears running down her eyes. "I'll never see the light of day again if that happened! The Civilian Council is already hounding me with girls thinking I'm a boy in hope to have sex with them to revive the Uchiha clan! I just want to find someone who would like me for being me!" She finally admitted, not even trying to hold the tears back anymore.
"Satsuki-chan. . ." Naruto got out as he looked at the girl in front of him, part of him in disbelief at how much different she was before he smiled at her. "Don't worry, I won't tell! And I always keep my word, that's my ninja way!"
Satsuki quickly brought up her head, surprised at what he said. "R-really?! You really mean it!? But what about what you said about going to the Hokage?!"
Naruto rubbed his head before saying in a calm manner, "I only said that because I believed that your secret could have jeopardized the old man in some way, shape or form, he's pretty much like family to me; and of course I'll keep your secret! No one should have to go through what you're going through." He reassured so she could see in his eyes that he was indeed telling the truth.
Satsuki, in response went braindead again for a moment as she did something that Sasuke Uchiha would never do, she jumped him, hugging him tightly never wanting to let go. "Oooooooh thankyouthankyouthankyou Naruto-kun! This means so much to me!" She gleefully said as she hugged the boy. "Hey. . .Naruto-kun?" Satsuki whispered softly feeling a bit nervous after a couple of minutes.
"Y-Yeah Satsuki-chan?" Naruto asked softly as if trying to give Satsuki reassurance about whatever she is going to ask.
"C-Could I. . . .b-be your friend?" Satsuki asked as she blushed shyly before looking up at Naruto through her eyelashes. "I-I really don't have any friends since no one knows about me and anyone who wants to be friends only wants it because of my name and clan status. . .so I can get pretty lonely. . ." She softly and depressingly explained.
Naruto, who never really had a girl as beautiful as Satsuki hug him nor ask him the Kyubi brat to be friends, had a full face blush that could rival that of certain Hyuga. A part of him also felt sad for Satsuki knowing that she really didn't have any friends and knew what it was like to be lonely. He then scratched the back of his head. "Sure! I would love to be friends with you Satsuki-chan. . .n-no problem." He said nervously before realizing something. "You know something?"
"Yes Naruto-kun?" Satsuki asked as she then cuddled his arm, looking dreamily at him as her onyx eyes sparkled, even if they were slightly red from her crying a moment ago.
"Cute. . ." Naruto couldn't help but think the girl holding onto his arm was extremely cute, not just her face but her personality too. "You're incredibly different than Sasuke. It's like you pulled a complete 180 and is a completely different person."
Satsuki inturn gained a depressed look on her face from the statement, making Naruto regret what he said, although he was still curious about her sudden change in mood. "Well you see. . .I had to. . .or else people. . .would think I'm weird. . ."
"What do you mean?" Naruto asked, confused at this. "What's wrong with you acting the way you are now?"
"I'm suppose to be Sasuke Uchiha. Rookie of the year, loved by the entire village for being an Uchiha, and the last hope for it's revival. If I acted like a girl. . .it would make people speak badly about the Uchiha. I had to put up the best boy facade I could think of. I just didn't want them all to speak badly about my family."
This time it was Naruto who turned depressed as he both understood her feelings, but also could never understand her feelings. He looked towards the ground, not able to face Satsuki. "Yeah, I get it. Well I get the idea anyway, I never knew who my family was so I can only guess how you feel."
Satsuki's jaw almost dropped. He didn't even know who his family was? In class he was always so loud and cheerful, and yet. "Naruto-kun. . ." Satsuki muttered.
Normally it would have gone unnoticed by the blond but with his enhanced hearing he heard it loud and clear. Naruto looked back at Satsuki, about to ask what she wanted, only to be stopped by her sad onyx eyes that were spilling more tears. Naruto couldn't say anything. He was too mesmerized by the sad beauty holding onto him as if he'd disappear if she hadn't.
"I'm so sorry!" Satsuki blurted out as she hugged Naruto's arm even tighter.
Naruto's aqua blue eyes widen in shock, what was she apologizing for? She hadn't done anything, if anything he should have been the one apologizing. "Satsuki-chan. . .what!?"
"I-I'm soooo sorry, I've done nothing but complain even though I knew my family! I shouldn't. . .I mean I-" Satsuki's muttered words were stopped by Naruto who lifted her chin up with his free hand, making her look him in the eyes.
"It's alright, I don't really care about it." He simply said.
"He didn't care!? He didn't care about not having a family!? How could he!?" Satsuki thought, shocked at this revelation but she let him continue wanting to know the full reason why he didn't care.
"I don't know what a parents love is, so I can't really be sad about not having it. So it's alright, go ahead and cry Satsuki-chan, you can just be you now, even it's for a few moments" Naruto said, giving a soft smile.
"N-Naruto-kun. . ." Satsuki muttered as her eyes widened, filling with even more tears than before as she began to openly cry into his chest.
How had the two been enemies for so long? They were supposed to hate each other, that's how it's been since they met. And yet here she was, The Satsuki Uchiha, burying her head into Naruto Uzumaki, the class clown's chest. Crying her eyes out, sobbing into her jacket while he gently held her whispering calm words to help her settle down.
Naruto then decided to get up and bring her to her bedroom to try and help her go to sleep for the night. He couldn't get over how frail she felt. He was worried if he held her any tighter she would break. This was what his rival was really like? The icy cold Sasuke was actually the sweet girl Satsuki Uchiha, who only wanted nothing more than to make her family happy, even if they weren't with her anymore. She was probably hurting a lot more than even he was. He continued to walk towards her room, holding her as she continued cuddling into his chest.
"N-Naruto-kun. . ."
Suddenly Naruto was brought back to earth as Satsuki began to speak, her face still buried in his chest, knowing that she finished crying. "Ah, Yeah? What is it Satsuki-chan?"
Satsuki was hesitant to talk for a moment before gathering the courage to ask. "Would you mind if I. . .be a little more selfish?"
Naruto was confused at this. "What do you mean more selfish Satsuki-chan?"
Satsuki tightened her grip on Naruto's jacket as he walked towards her bedroom, still feeling slightly nervous. "Would you. . .mind spending the night?" Satsuki's entire body tensed up as she finished her question.
"Eh!?" Naruto thought, but was still shocked. Did she really want him to spend the night? "Satsuki-chan?" Naruto could tell she wasn't lying, and he also knew he couldn't say no while she was like this. He was nervous but nodded his head. "Sure, but are you sure you really want me to? I mean. . .we're kinda alone here so. . ." He hesitated at the last part, feeling slightly embarrassed.
Suddenly Satsuki giggled, which surprised Naruto as she nuzzled her head a little with a small smile. "Don't worry, I trust you Naruto-kun."
Naruto couldn't help but think he's blushed more this entire night than he has his entire life. He honestly couldn't help but think that Satsuki was cute when she was showing off her true colors. "Y-Yup, real swap in personality."
Satsuki couldn't help but nod as she heard what he said. "Yup, I'm reeeeally good at acting." She ended with another giggle.
"I-I can tell. . ." Naruto looked away, not wanting her to see him blush as the two arrived at Satsuki's room. "So uh. . .where should I sleep?" He asked as he sat down on the side of the bed.
"Here's fine." Naruto looked at Satsuki who once again rested her body against his, using his chest like a pillow.
Not knowing what to do, Naruto just looked down at Satsuki as she nuzzled into his chest, her eyes were shut and she had the small smile that would make any man fall in love. "Damn. . ." Naruto muttered as he looked at her, but not in hate like he originally did with Sasuke, he just couldn't feel any negativity towards Satsuki. "Don't you worry Satsuki-chan, you don't ever have to worry about anything now that I'm here to help. I'll protect you, I promise." Naruto whispered softly thinking Satsuki is already asleep.
He then felt her shift over to get more comfortable before hearing a small voice "Do you really mean that. . . .Naruto-kun?"
Naruto looked down to see that Satsuki was staring at him in a half sleepy daze before nodding, and putting his forehead against hers, smiling all the while. "Of course Satsuki-chan, I never go back on my word."
Satsuki sleepily smiled as she went back to nuzzling Naruto's chest. "Thank you. . .Naruto-kun. . ."
With that being said, they each said their goodnights and drifted off to sleep, each smiling for their own reasons, both of them not knowing how the future will change with their interactions.
JG (jgresidentevil)'s A/N: Yo everyone! This is JG with a special treat to anyone who see this! As you can tell, the first chapter had been completely rewritten and I gotta say, it's frickin' better than the original! I have to thank DarkAngel325 for helping me with this and the overall new beginning of Uchiha Heiress Remix!
DA325 (DarkAngel325)'s A/N: Hey everyone, DarkAngel325 here and I have to say I had a lot of fun re-writing this chapter. It had a lot more action and drama that was fun to write and was a bit more detailed in the action. I have to say it does look better than the original but then again if it wasn't for the original, we wouldn't have a better remix re-write.
JG: She's right everyone, so that's why we should thank the original author that started the story and asked me to take it, Fallen Angel Zenith, thanks for the start of this and how it's progressed since the beginning. Also to the flamers, bashers and nitpickers, FU *gives the middle finger*, that includes you Trace Reading. So DA325, any last words?
DA325: Other than we don't appreciate haters, we hope that you enjoy this new re-write remix and hope to give you the best damn action adventures we could think of!
JG: So let us know if you want us to redo the other chapters before I started working with Shinobi-Production98, who couldn't be here again cause of his play works but will be back soon. Later everyone and enjoy!
