Today was both the best and the worst day for seven year old Naruto Uzumaki the worst part believe it or not was that today was his birthday. Now an orphan's birthday isn't usually a happy occasion at the best of times. Throw in the fact that the people of the village seem to hate you, and being kicked out of the orphanage at the age of five and forced to survive on the streets. Plus the fact that drunken mobs comb the village in an attempt to find, and kill you on your birthday. Which happens to be the same day six years ago that the village was attacked by the kyubi (nine tailed fox). October 10th.
He had learned his lesson last year about being easy to find on his birthday, but on that day last year the hokage had stopped them from killing him, although he still ended up in the hospital for two days.
Naruto woke up and stared at the ceiling above him, and knew instantly that he was in the hospital he heard a noise and looked towards the window. When he did he saw a man with white hair that went down to the middle of his back with it being spiky on the top. But that's all he could see as his back was to Naruto. "Who are you and what are you doing here?" Naruto ask the man.
But the man just disappeared in a puff of smoke. He then heard a crooking sound and looked down at his feet to see a small toad sitting at the foot of his bed, his first reaction was to jump away and call for help. But for some reason he didn't. The toad was small about the size of his hands put together. Suddenly the toad opened its mouth and extended its tongue and produces a scroll it was about 30cm long and quiet thick. The toad places it on Naruto's lap and poofed out of existents. He pick up the scroll and saw there was what he recognised as a seal holding it close. He looked at it and the thought came to his mind to put some blood on it. So he did and a letter appeared in a puff of smoke.
Congratulations and commiserations fellow clansman.
If you are reading this that means that you are and Uzumaki and maybe the last one of us although I do hope our plan succeeded and the civilians and children escaped. Now this scroll contains enough of our knowledge of sealing, taijutsu, ninjutsu, kenjutsu and epically fujitsu as our clan are master of the art the scroll has seals on it that will only respond to the blood and chakra of an Uzumaki and specifically yours now. The seals will know when you are ready for what's stored in them; right now you need what's in the first one as it contains scroll on chakra control and the basics of the dragon taijutsu the clan's signature style.
I suggest you keep this hidden from others and train in secret, I will say no more.
Third and final uzukarge
After that he heard footsteps coming towards his room. So he hid the scroll and made sure to take it with him when the old man took him to his new home.
Since that day he had released the fist seal and two scrolls and a book popped out of it. There was the basic taijutsu scroll plus a scroll filled with exercises, both physical and chakra control which a third scroll 'a short history of the Uzumaki 'told him that because of one of the abilities of the clan that they always had more chakra than other people there age and skill level. It didn't say what it was though. And the book was 'fujitsu level one the basics'.
As he was thinking about all this he was in the middle of 300 one handed push ups, after finishing on his left hand he did 300 on his right. All this while using chakra to stick 150 leaves to his body and a medium sized rock to the bottom of each foot. And while Naruto was doing this he had 100 shadow clones doing various other things.
50 practicing taijutsu
25 practicing some basic jutsu
And the last 25 were studying fujitsu and ten of that were also studying history maths, science and things like that.
The shadow clones really helped a lot without it he wouldn't have been able to progress this far in only one year. He had found it inside the second seal there was an entire scroll dedicated to it explain in detail all of the uses for the jutsu. It seems that because of the Uzumaki clans large chakra reserves, none of them were able to do a simple Bushin (clone) jutsu. So they created the shadow clone jutsu as an alternative that although it required more chakra they also required less chakra control to perform. And as with most jutsu the more practice you had with it the more clones you could create, and the better chakra control you had the less chakra you need to use. One of the benefits of shadow clones over other clone types is that when one dispels the memories are shared with the original as well as the reaming clones. Making them great tool, for scouting and spying. And for Naruto I particularly training and learning. As he was doing right now. He had also learned the henge (transformation) jutsu from watching other ninjas practice while hiding in the trees.
That jutsu had come in really handy since the store owners in the village except for a few either kicked him out or overcharge him for defect merchandise or near rotten food. So now he just creates a clone or two and then they transform into random people and do the shopping for him. Two of his special clones even have a job one is a man named Moto and the other is a girl named Karima. It took Naruto six months to get to the point where he can create them at will. These aren't just henge copies of Naruto. These clones had their own personality's likes and dislikes.
Moto worked as a carpenters apprentice and Karima works as a waitress at the most popular bar/restaurant in the village. As well as being a good source of additional income to supplement the hefty stipend he receives from the Hokage each month. Karima especially is a great source of information, as he had learnt from a book he got as birthday present from the old man; Intel is a ninja's best friend.
He finished his exercises and put his cloths back on, unlike the orange pans and jacket he had gotten from the orphanage.
He now wore navy blue pants with black sandals and a pouch over his left but cheek. He also wore a dark leaf green jacket over a black mesh shirt. His arms, legs chest and lower back had hidden seals that only an Uchiha with an advanced sharingan would be able to see a body guard for one of his few friends Hinata Huyga, the heiress to the Huyga clan main branch. Came over to his house the day after he met her when he stopped some bullies from picking on her. And demanded to know what the seals were. So Naruto told Ko that they were resistant's seals to help him train by adding chakra to them they added extra weight to his body, at that time six months ago he had only just applied them so he only had them set for an extra 20lbs on his upper body and 35lbs on his legs, and still had to use chakra just to move. That was the only reason Ko had noticed them.
Right now he was at 50lbs upper and 65 on the legs and was getting to the point where he could move freely at that weight without using chakra to enhance his strength and he was almost up to speed. Once he could do a full speed spar with 100 clones verse him he would up the weights another notch, but this set of seals had a 100lbs limit so he would have to find something better after he got used to the new weight. Maybe he would look into making his own training seals.
After upping all the seals to the max his legs collapsed from under he and he fell down onto his back with a loud thud he thought he heard a noise but dismissed it as nothing no one else trained at this training ground as it was close to the forest of death. After pumping chakra throughout his body he very slowly got up and sat back against a tree and had his clones dispel in batches of ten every ten minutes.
Hinata held her breath she had almost ran to Naruto when she saw him fall over after making a few hand signs but a hand held her back. She turned in surprise to see Ko her personal bodyguard from the cadet branch.
"Lady Hinata we must go now your mother wants to take you to the park to meet your friends and she sent me to get you" Ko said. "Ok let's go" replied Hinata.
'see you soon Naruto=kun' Hinata thought as she took one last look over her shoulder at her crush still sitting in a meditative state while dispelling clones and sorting through their memories.
An hour and forty minutes later Naruto open his eyes as he absorbed the memories of the last of the sealing clone's memories. 'hmm it looks like I can finally move on to the next seal now that I have read all the level 4 sealing books, I wonder what will be in the level 5 seal' he said to himself. But he couldn't dwell on it otherwise he would be late to meet with his friends. So after adjusting the chakra suppression seal above his heart, he took off through the trees towards the park where he was to meet the only friends his age that he had.
After getting back to the Huyga compound and changing cloths Hinata walked hand in hand with her mother Hannah with her three year old sister Hannabi being held on their mother's hip.
They reached the park and she saw all of her friends or 'the Konoha nine' as some people had begun to call them. There was Sakura Haruno and Ino Yamanaka together picking flowers. Choji Akimichi was eating a bag of chips while sitting next to his best friend and the lazy one of the group
Shikamaru Nara who was cloud watching as usual then there was Tenten Yakamada who was practicing kunai throwing by aiming for Kiba Inuzuka, probably for trying to flirt with her. The thing that made this group of friends special was that except for Sakura, Tenten and Naruto. They were all the heirs to their respective clans, oh and shino was their too. (Runs screaming from the computer as some bugs head straight for me). They all saw Hinata and they all said high to her and continued with what they were doing while Hinata went to the swings to wait for Naruto.
It was five minutes later Hinata hear a scream coming from the direction that her mother was in. What the kids saw when they all looked towards the sound froze all of them in place. Hannah was on the ground with two dark shapes standing over her limb form and there was a senbon needle stick out of her neck, one of the shapes which turned out to be ninja with leaf head bands that Hinata could see an were wherein the attire of chunin, on was carrying an unconscious Hanabi under his arm. Before anyone could move they were all hit with senbon except for Hinata who managed to doge the ones sent towards her. But she felt pain and felt a presence behind her she looked around to see the second figure had appeared behind her and stabbed a needle in her neck. The last thing she heard was a voice that gave her hope say.
"WHAT THE HELL DO YOU GUYS THINK YOU ARE DOING? GET AWAWAY FROM HINATA OR ELES!" was the last thing she heard as the darkness over took her.
Naruto arrived to a horrific scene. The limb bodies of his friends were spread out all over the park. With what he recognised from one of his book were senbon needles, a main weapon for ninja who specialize in the silent kill.
'Those two look like chunin and the senbon are probably poisoned sigh ... even if I deactivate my resistants seals. I could barely take on one of them let alone two at once hmm... ' Naruto thought as he tried to think of a way to save his friends and Hinata from these two rouge ninja. Then his mind kicked into gear at the thought of Hinata being in danger as he saw one of the missing nin appear behind her and shove a syringe into her neck. An idea began to form in his prankster side that just might work. So he created a few cones and told one of them. "Alright you go tell ojji what's going on" the clone nodded and left while drawing a seal on a blank scroll he out lined the plan.
"This was too easy after this I'm glad we are leaving this weak village, what do you think Dalton" the one that was holding Hanabi said. "I agree with you Dodos" said the one named Dalton who was holding a now unconscious Hinata. They were just about to leave when a figure appeared in between them and the way out.
The person was 4'6 inches tall with blond hair wearing a forest green jacket and light green pants with a pair of black ninja sandals on his feet.
"WHAT THE HELL DO YOU GUYS THINK YOU ARE DOING? GET AWAWAY FROM HINATA OR ELES!" said the figure.
"Or else what you little runt?" said Dalton. "Yeah it's not like a little shrimp like you could do anything to stop us" sneered Dodos.
"I'm Naruto Uzumaki and I will stop you to protect my friend that is my nindo, my ninja WAY!"
"Hah hahaha like a demon like you would have any friends. Hey Dodos let's kill the demon before we take our prizes to lord Oroachimaru" said Dolton as he put his burden down and pulled out some kunai as Dodos did the same and they both lunched their weapons at Naruto at the same time. All Naruto did was make the ram seal and yelled "MULTI SHADOW CLONE JUTSU!" and then there was a puff of smoke that covered the entire clearing.
Hiruzen Sarutobi the third Hokage sat at his desk fighting the eternal that all kage must fight. Paper work he had just denied another request to ban Naruto Uzumaki a boy he thought of as a second grandson from entering the academy. 'Dam fools can tell the difference between the demon and the container, Minto I'm sorry I let it get this bad if only I had told from the start that his father was you" he thought as he looked out the window toward the Hokage monument.
His thoughts were interrupted when his door burst open to reveal Naruto breathing like he had just run a marathon. "Naruto haven't I told you that you can't come barging in here without knocking" Hiruzen said in a stern voice while hiding a smile.
"Sorry Hokage=Sama I didn't have time to waste on your stupid secretary, I'm only a shadow clone the boss sent me to tell you that two chunin have attack Hinata and the rest of my friends, he's going to try and hold them off until you get there and bring some medics too they have been poisoned, hurry from the memories I'm getting the boss is in trouble" the clone said and after giving the location dispelled itself.
"NEKO, BIRD!" he commanded as the two Anbu in the room revealed them and kneeled down in front of him. "Neko, gather your squad and meet me there" he said to the one with the cat mask as she disappeared in a swirl of leaves. "Bird I want you to go to the hospital and gather a medic squad then follow me" he nodded and left.
Just before he left Hiruzen a strong chakra spike in the direction of the park, followed a minute later by another more recognizable chakra spike " hold on Naruto I'm coming" he said as he jumped out the window. 'There has to be something wrong with the seal if he is using the kyubi chakra' he thought.
Naruto's plan was working for the most part, he had been able to sneak a clone to each of his friends that place a stasis seal drawn in his blood on them and take them away from here all except Hinata. He had taken down Dalton himself while his clones kept both of them busy with a kunai to the back of the neck, killing him. Dodos saw his brother fall and ran through some hand signs and snarled "Doton grand fissure!"
The ground shook then a large hole opened up swallowing the remaining clones. "for what you did to my brother ill use the power Lord Oroachimaru gave me to CRUSH YOU!" he said as he charged at a panting Naruto now sporting black marks all over his visible skin.
Before he knew what happened Dodos was in front of him and stabbed him I the gut with a kunai and the world went dark.
Naruto woke up in what looked like an old sewer. As he looked around he saw a pair of giant golden cage doors. "COME CLOSER AND I WILL GRANT YOU THE POWER TO PROTECT YOUR FRIENDS" said a demonic sounding voice from inside the cage where two large red eyes were viable. Naruto new he should be frightened right now but the urge to protect his precious people was stronger.
As he got closer he could make out the outline of a big red fox attached to those red eyes.
"Who are you? Where am I?" Naruto asked the caged beast.
"I AM THE KYUBI NO YOKO THE STRONGEST OF THE TAILED BEASTS AND THE REASON THE VILLAGER HATE YOU, AN FOR THAT I'm AM TRURLY SORRY. AND AS FOR WEAR WE ARE THIS IS YOUR MIND CREATED BY THE SEAL THAT HOLDS ME" it replied.
"You're the thing that attacked the village twelve years ago I thought the 4th Hokage killed you and saved the village?"
"NO HE DIDN'T KILL ME, I CANT BE KILLED I'm MADE OF CHAKRA I CAN ONLY BE SEALED, AND LETS JUST SAY IDIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE WHEN I ATTACKED THIS VILLAGE. BUT ILL EXPLAIN THAT LATER IF I CAN BUT RIGHT NOW I'm WILLING TO GIVE YOU AS MUCH OF MY POWER AS YOUR BODY CAN HANDLE RIGHT NOW SO YOU CAN PROTECT YOUR PACK FROM THAT THING".
"Alright ill trust you for now not to try to take control so I can help my friends, now how do I leave this place?" Naruto said.
"THIS IS YOUR MIND JUST WILL YOUR SELF TO LEAVE AND YOU WILL AND YOU CAN CALL ME KURAMA" said the fox as he faded out of his mind.
'JUST LIKE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, MAYBE TOU=SAN'S LAST PROFECY IS FINLY COMMING TRUE. REGARDLESS I WILL KEEP MY PROMESS AND HELP HIM' KURAMA THOUGHT TO HIMSELF AS HE TRANSFERED SOME OF HIS CAKRA TO THE BOY AND WENT TO SLEEP.
Hinata was waking up from the drug induced sleep, she looked up to see Dodos standing over her with his pants around his ankles and his dick hanging out, she screamed and tried to get away from him but she couldn't move yet.
Dodos' cursed seal was bringing out his base instincts on top was his sex drive.
Then they felt it a wave of killing intent that pushed Hinata to the ground all most knocking her out again. She activated her Byakugan and dodos look around in fear while being force to his knees by the KI coming from Naruto. Hinata could see red chakra moving thru his coils.
Naruto stood up and pulled the kunai out of the rapidly healing wound in his chest. "For what you tried to do to Hinata and what you did to my friends I'm am going to kill you!" he said in a growling pitched voice. Then one moment he was standing 100 feet away the Dodos was sent flying strait into a tree with an audible snap he was dead.
Naruto turned to Hinata the fox's chakra starting to leave him, his eyes turning from red to bright blue. "Hinata are you alright" he asked in a soothing voice just as the third Hokage arrived with his Anbu guard and a squad of medics. "Yes you saved us Naruto=Kun thank you" she replied on a whisper as his leg gave out and he began to fall towards her before the Hokage caught him. He looked up at the old man and said. "About time you got her ojji=san you'll find the others in the bushes the seal only need my blood to release them" was the last thing he said before he passed out from chakra exhaustion.
