I don't own it; I admit it, so really you wouldn't have much of a case against me in court.

Son of the Snake

Chapter 1

The kidnapping of Naruto Uzumaki!

Naruto trudged home after school. It was tiring, especially for a 7 year old like him. And with everything else, he didn't know what to do other than keep going, even if it was only barely. He entered his apartment, and walked down the small hall which opened into his bedroom. He flopped back onto the bed, and sighed, closing his eyes.


Orochimaru dropped from the ceiling where he had been hiding. He had only come to look over the one he wanted... But the Jinchuriki would make an excellent student, with so much chakra. It was an excellent idea. And who knows maybe he would be doing the kid a favor, no one wanted him around anyways, and that counted even further in his favor because it meant he would be easy to turn into a strong enemy of the leaf.

"Sensei, you are a fool to leave him by himself. People like me can just take him away. Well, it's your loss..." he said summoning a snake, which promptly bit the blonde boy. "That should keep him unconscious for a while..."

Naruto's POV

He woke up, and the first thing he felt was a stinging on his leg. He sat up and moved the covers he was under; he found four puncture marks on his left thigh. It was obviously done by a snake, but he wasn't dying. So obviously the poison was gone. He began looking around the room, he was currently sitting in a fairly large bed, it was about 6 feet across, and 8 feet long, it was obviously underground because there were no windows, and everything was lit by torches. He sat there for almost half an hour before deciding to get out of the bed. He stood up a little shakily, and walked to one of the doors, it was locked. There were three more doors. The next one was a closet, the next a bathroom (Which he was really glad for), and the last one was locked. There was a table with some paper on it, a candle, and a chair in front of it, a mirror on the wall, and in the closet several sets of clothes that looked brand new.

He decided to change clothes into something a bit newer, cleaner as well. He chose the Azure blue pants, and shirt. Once he was changed he laid back down on the bed sighing, wondering what he had been thrown into now...He would have first assumed that it was one of the villagers, but then the clothes, and the bathroom was not only working, but in perfect shape. And the bed was quite comfortable, much more so than the one he had at home, it hadn't been one of the villagers; he decided soon falling back asleep, not noticing as someone entered the room.

Three hours later...

Naruto sat up groggily. He was still slightly tired; from the poison he assumed.

"So you've finally woken up..." a voice said from the corner.

"Who're you?"

"I am Kabuto Yakushi. I've been asked by your father to watch you."

"My... Father...?"

"Lord Orochimaru."

"Orochimaru... That name... I think I've heard it before..."

"Probably when you were in the academy, they have an odd curriculum there, it jumps a lot. One moment you'll be learning about one hundred years ago, and then you'll come all the way to ten years ago… But I guess it's hard to do it any other way. There are lessons that must be learned from history only at certain times."

"I know who Orochimaru is! He's a village traitor, why the heck is he saying he's my dad?!"

"He saved you from that place. Think about it… They have tried multiple times to kill you, and you're only an innocent child. But here, with us, you can have people all around you that appreciate you, and all of your hard work."

"B-but… I was going to be Hokage… I was going to make them all respect me if I had too."

"But you see they wouldn't have allowed that…They hate you, but here, you'll have friends."

"B-But I did have friends… Iruka Sensei, Shikamaru, Choji, Kiba, Shino… And Hinata and I even talked together once in a while…"

"Do you think they should, their parents I'm sure have told them multiple times not to associate with you… They might get in trouble. You wouldn't want that would you?" Kabuto asked him leaving the fact Iruka was an orphan out of the equation.

"I-I…"

"Are you hungry?" Kabuto suddenly asked. Naruto nodded.

"What would you like?"

"Ramen!" Kabuto chuckled standing up.

"Ramen it is…"


Hiruzen sighed sadly. It had been three days already and there was still no sign of Naruto, most of the village was talking about it, and for his liking, far too many were celebrating; far too many as in excluding 12 people, maybe a few others. And of course there was the fact that he had to tell Jiraiya…

"So what's the celebration about?" Jiraiya asked lightheartedly entering his office through the window.

"Something's happened… It's… About Naruto…"

"What?" Jiraiya asked his lightheartedness gone.

"Three days ago he was kidnapped. I immediately sent the ANBU, and Inuzuka I could trust after them, though that was very few, but all signs point to…"

"What? All signs point to what?"

"All signs point to Orochimaru being his kidnapper…"

"But, what would Orochimaru want with him?!" he yelled, much more alarmed with this new piece of information.

"I don't know the nine tails inside of him maybe. I should've finished the job when I had the chance, this wouldn't be happening now if I had." Hiruzen said.

"You want me to go look for him?"

"Yes, in a way… You see I want you to keep an ear out for anything that might lead us to him. I don't even want to think what might be happening."

"I don't either. I'm scared sensei…"

"For the boy, or is it being pummeled by his parents in the afterlife?"

"Both…"

"Well I guess we can only hope for the best."

"Finding info on Orochimaru is now my top priority, I will find Naruto; he's my godson and my responsibility after all." Jiraiya said, and then left the same way he had come, and dropped into a hotel, then left the village ten minutes later.


Naruto laid down for some more sleep, Kabuto had told him that the snake that had bitten him hadn't used poison, it was a sedative instead meant to keep him asleep, and it would only wear off with time. The silver haired boy had been highly amused at how much the kid could eat, he'd finally stopped somewhere around twenty bowls. Eventually the teen had left, and left Naruto to his own devices.

"Kabuto, how is our newest addition doing?" Orochimaru asked.

"He's torn; it might take a bit of tampering with his memory to get him to pledge allegiance with us, but not too much. I mostly just have to remove some people from his mind. Out of sight, out of mind and he's as good as ours."

"Good, good. Now… You should go back. The time your mission was assigned to should be up soon."

"I have two days to return. I'll be fine."

"Yes, you have two weeks to return here, and while you're gone I think I'll go and see him…"


Jiraiya sighed. There was a trail right up until the forest. He must've had an accomplice to meet with him and cover any tracks… "DANG IT OROCHIMARU!" He yelled.


"Well Naruto, it's nice to meet you." Orochimaru said sitting in the only chair in the room. (Unless you count the bed...)

"Who're you?"

"I'm Orochimaru... But I would rather father or something close to it since I've adopted you..."

"You'll have to earn that title."

"Yes, yes, it only seems fair..."

"Why did you take me away from home?"

"Because, it's better for you here, no one here will hurt you, you will not only be acknowledged, but also cared for. And when you're old enough, you'll be able to become a ninja."

"But... My friends are going to worry about me... And the Old Man... And-and I was already going to be a ninja, I was going to be Hokage!"

"Well why don't you just think about it..."

"But I don't want to think about it, I want to go home!"

"Ah, but you are home...At least in my eyes."

"But home...To me...Is Konoha...with my friends..." Orochimaru sighed beginning to lose his patience.

"Look, if in two weeks you still don't want to stay here...We'll send you 'home'...Of course if you want to stay here you're free to. Also you're welcome to leave the room."

"But the doors are locked."

"I'll leave them unlocked. Just don't get in anyone's way."

"F-fine...I agree to those terms..." Orochimaru smirked, he knew he could do it, it had just taken a bit of patience...He stood from the chair and left the room with that unnerving smirk still on his face scaring the heck out of his ninja as he passed.

"Aurea, I want you to keep an eye on the child, make sure he doesn't get into trouble, and if he does keep people from scaring him, I want our best foot forward..." Orochimaru said his disturbing smirk still there.

"Y-yes, Lord Orochimaru," She said before leaving down the hall on the ceiling...
