"Naruto"-Normal speaking

'Naruto'-Normal thought

'Naruto'-Kyuubi/greater being thinking/speaking from mindscape/somebody demonically pissed off.

Disclaimer: I don't own Naruto, One Piece or any other licensed fiction work otherwise WHY THE HELL I WOULD BE HERE?! This is a story that I adopted from Atlanrom who discontinued it. Now this will be a yaoi. If you don't like don't read! This story will be lemon scented come later chapters. All I want to know is if it should be NaruXItachi or NaruXKakashi? Tell me in reviews.

This fic is basically a neglected godlike Naruto story.

Key points: Naruto will seem very awkward mixture of Minato and Joker (Sick Humour) in general. During battle he will be mostly like how Madara is in a battle. He will be strong almost overpowered at times but I tried to find a reasonable explanation for his power.

*Yoko – Naruto's sister. Basically looks like her mother when she was young but has shorter hair, has violet eyes, her face is less round (from Minato's side), and has the same whisker marks. She is one year younger than Naruto. She wears skin-tight black ANBU-style battle armour except that instead of the vest she wears an open light green jacket that covers her chest area and a short Sakura shippuuden style-skirt. She contains 5 tails worth of Kyuubi's chakra and the Yin part of his soul.

*Menma- Naruto's brother. Looks like cannon naruto but he has violet eyes. He is usually dressed in a light blue tracksuit with three orange stripes on his sleeves, a mesh undershirt, dark blue trousers and dark calf-length sandals (similar to Namikaze Minato's clothing during his academy years and genin days).He has 3 tails of Kyuubi and Yang part of his soul. Looks physically and mentally Like Cannon Naruto.

NOTE- Kushina will have 1 tail of chakra with perfect control over it.

Yoko will love naruto LIKE A SISTER (No No F**** incest) I JUST DON'T WRITE IT. Menma will be jealous of Naruto's power.

Warning- There will be Menma, Council, Sasuke and Sakura Bashing. There will be minor Jiraiya, Kakashi and Tsunade bashing.

The main pairing will be Naru/Hina. I don't write nor encourage writing harem. It screws with romance.

Possible pairings which I might consider adding

1- Iruka/ /Anko

2- Gaara/Tenten

3- Yoko/Ino or any other female. (This pairing will only and only be written if my reviewers want so.

JAPANESE MIGHT YOU NEED TO KNOW-

Kibishi- Grim

Akumahada-Meaning Devil's skin- It will be the name of Naruto's sword.

Senso- War

###################### STORY TIME ###################################

It has been five years since the Kyuubi no Kitsune/Kurama was ripped from Kushina Namikaze, wife of the Fourth Hokage Minato Namikaze, and had its power resealed into two of their newborn twins Yoko and Menma. Like always they were declared a hero to the village. Forgotten by his own parents was their older brother Naruto Namikaze.

5 Years Ago

"Are you ready to die?" the Shinigami asked in its emotionless voice.

Minato had known that the price of summoning the Shinigami was your own life and he had been sure that when the moment came he would show no fear. But standing here with his children in his arms, he didn't want to die.

So he looked up at the Shinigami and shouted "Of course I'm not fucking ready to die! I just had 3 children and sealed a demon inside of two of them! I want to see them grow up! I want to see their mother again! So no I'm not ready to die!"

The Shinigami simply stared at him with a blank face before saying "Fine I can let you live, on a condition."

Minato was so dumbstruck that he could barely speak. When he composed himself, he managed to utter out the word "What!?"

"The price of using this sealing is your life. So no matter what you will eventually die and I will get your soul. It may take years but I am patient and there are plenty of other souls that need to be collected." Said the Shinigami rather patiently.

Minato just stared at the space where the Shinigami was and said "What!?"

Rubbing his forehead, Shinigami muttered "That's why Yami hates the lot of you"

Then the Death continued "Your child is born with Great Power, Don't FUCKING neglect him otherwise crap ton of people will die and Paperwork of GIGANTIC PROPORTION WILL WRECK HAVOC ON HIGHER WORLD!" Said the deity yelling at the end.

Present Day

Naturally thinking the great power was Kyuubi, The fanfiction began.

In the last five years the personality of the twins especially Menma has gone from bad to crap. When something didn't go their way they complained until someone gave them what they wanted. They also bullied other children of their age group mostly Naruto. Naruto didn't say a word. Speaking of the boy, even at the tender age of four years old when life is just beginning, Naruto Namikaze was forced to mature faster than anyone else his age. The reason why? Once the Kyuubi incident was over, Minato told the village that someone powerful summoned the Kyuubi to destroy the village, specifically omitting the fact that it was an Uchiha who caused the commotion to keep the Uchiha Clan calm. (A.N. Yeah, that turned out great asshole.)

But he had defeated the beast and sealed it into his twin children who would use the power to protect the village. The people who loved Minato trusted his judgment and accepted them as the savior of their village and treated them like a hero. But there were some, who doubted him. Thankfully they kept their thoughts to themselves.

Naruto was soon forgotten on their birthdays even though all three shared the same one. On Christmas was the same thing, during the family parties, family dinners, family vacations…not once did they remember him. He was left at home alone. Sometimes when his parents were so attentive of his siblings they would forget about his food. And when they did notice him, they would only nod their heads as if he wasn't of any importance. But again he suffered, just for sake of others. Like a perfect half ass son. Although Naruto knew all the crap was due to some prophecy talk though.

As far as relations mattered his parents were parents were for name sake. Bully siblings. As if it wasn't enough ignorant god parents came into the mix. Tsunade wanted to train Yoko for super strength and 2nd slug sage position. Jiraiya wanted to do the same for Menma. Speaking of the Toad, did I mention he once even dared to call our favorite blonde worthless? Yes you heard right, you see last year when Naruto was 3, he was trying to hit bull's eye painted on the Holy Log (It's holy because it saves everyone's lives and is always there for you whenever you're in danger.)

Anyways a broken Jiraiya then came who has been rejected by Tsunade once more. Wanting to take out his frustration on the log he ordered Naruto to go away. Unfortunately he did it in a berating way. Poor fool didn't knew how much it will come back to bite him in the ass.

Genjutsu: Flashback No Jutsu

"Go and take your shurikens away, Not that they matter much, being worthless considering their master." Jiraiya said in tone which was broken like his heart.

Flashback No Jutsu: KAI

That drove Naruto near the breaking point, His only lifelines to village being his Honorary grandfather Hiruzen Sarutobi. The Sandaime was the only person in the entire village to give him gifts and parental love. Honestly Naruto would be lying if he said he didn't view Sandaime as more of parent then his biological ones. Sandaime didn't give him any shinobi training but he gave him moral lessons through stories about life. But Naruto didn't care about not getting any training. Sandaime gave him time. It was what mattered.

However, He was in the end pushed to limits finally few days later.

Genjutsu: Flashback No Jutsu

On October tenth the day of his fourth birthday, Naruto walked out of his room and went out to see that his parents were getting the gear ready for twin's training. He went to ask if he could train with them today, but when he got close he heard his father say something.

"You know what Kushi-chan?" Minato asked his red haired wife, "Today at the party I plan on allowing twins to sign the toad and the slug contract."

Kushina turned to her husband and looked at him like he was crazy or something. "Don't you think that it's a little too soon for them to sign the contracts?"

"Not at all, once they sign it, I will begin teaching them my rasengan," Minato said.

"I don't see why you would want for them to learn so much in such a short amount of time," Kushina said shaking her head.

"Come on, I won't have my children go out there and get themselves killed because they were not properly prepared," Minato said

"But that's not all I think twins will be better as the heirs of our clans, Menma for Namikaze and Yoko for Uzumaki and I will announce that on their 8th birthday that they will be our heirs" continued Minato shocking Naruto who was listening on the other side of the door., "now come on, let's finish this so we can finish twin's training soon then we'll go and eat something together like a family." Kushina happily nodded.

Ironically it was at that very moment the family broke apart.

What neither of them noticed was that their son had heard everything. Naruto had tears flowing down his cheeks. He was in pain, the kind of pain of being forgotten by his own parents. Turning around, he began to run away, he would run away from the village and never return. Reaching the compound's main gate he didn't even turn back, he just kept on running.

Flashback No Jutsu: KAI

Few hours later he returned being tired only to find he was alone. Naruto gripped his own hands into fist. He was in pain due to his nails digging in the flesh of his own palm but it wasn't comparable to one in his little heart. Naruto then did the only logical thing he knew he should, He planned.

To plan, Naruto went to his own room.

To anyone else the room was the definition of plain, there was nothing on the walls, the floor was bare, and no clothes were anywhere to be seen. Only things out of place were several books about sealing and basic chakra control. That too Naruto got by copying from his father's things from his personal library that he left here and there, from public libraries or by stealing money his parents left here and there. Unlike his siblings he wasn't allotted pocket money nor did he ever ask for one knowing that it would be useless.

First step of planning assess your own situation

1- Time period- 4 years before clan laws will disown him. He knew from clan laws that the only way to make younger sibling heir was to either disown elder sibling or make him heir of another clan. Naruto knew the probability of the later one was zero at best and negative at worst.

2- Skills- Naruto knew from book his IQ was 150 not 200 like a Nara but still a genius. He could perform substitution (E RANK), Henge (E rank) and bushin no Jutsu (E rank).He could form Kage Bushins but only one that too caused him to near chakra exhaustion. (A.N. Remember he is four year old and doesn't has Kyuubi) The only reason he could make a Kage Bushin was due to him being Uzumaki and his chakra being strong. His chakra was dense due to his IQ and physical training.

He has mastered academy style of taijutsu and is working on combining Uzumaki Forbidden Taijutsu: Whirlpool style and Drunken Fist. The reason whirlpool style was forbidden was because in it every part of body moved in a whirlpool motion and while being deadly against opponent, It can tear one's own limbs if not done correctly.

Kushina only had the Novice and Apprentice Scrolls for it so she never tried to master it. Oh Naruto was so taking these scrolls with himself. He called the new style Drunken Whirlpool. All in all he was High Genin

3- Money-10,000 ryo ( 1$=1 ryo)

4- Weapons- Low grade battle armory, sealing stuff, 20 shuriken, 20 kunai and average medical kit.

Second step-Aiming- Plan- Escape from Hell hole

Third step-Define short term targets to reach to long term goal

1- High chunin level or preferably Low jounin

2- Fuinjutsu-Level 7

3- High jounin or low Kage level chakra

4- High chunin level or preferably Low jounin level chakra control

5- Money- 50,000 ryo

6- Better armory and at least a 1000 shurikens and kunais and standard long term travelling plan.

7- Taijutsu should be Apprentice level Drunken Whirlpool i.e. Borderline Jounin.

8- Any scroll of technique or secret of Konoha he could sell in case plan fails.

Knowing he is short on time already, he started to work on the plan, His plan.

Two years later

The last two years have not been kind to our favorite blonde.

The first year he had been training hard with a workout that could make that weird Jounin Gai sweat. Totally ignoring parts of his life like socializing and playing Naruto trained 16-18 hours a day. During one of the sessions Naruto stumbled upon Forest of Death and started training in it. He started using resistant seals used on prisoners to enhance his muscle activity while not causing deformities in his still developing Skeleton. Naruto also stumbled upon in the process Anko and Itachi. Befriending them caused three effects.

1- Anko sympathized with him and told she had a similar experience due to being Orochimaru's former student. Also this entire incident brought her and a 14 year old Anbu captain Itachi close. (Itachi is 8 years older than Naruto)

2- For Itachi it meant talent being wasted. Itachi helped him in training and various stuff. Moreover He lost all respect for his former role model Kushina Uzumaki Namikaze along with her husband.

3- For Naruto, it meant precious bonds. Soon Naruto started calling Itachi Nii-Chan (older brother) and Anko Nee-Chan (older sister).They called him ototou (younger brother). Also he made a girlfriend. For Naruto he didn't understand meaning of girlfriend so he went to the literal meaning. Poor Naruto thought girlfriend means a girl who is his friend (which was basically correct). Needless to tell when he told Anko and Itachi they were laughing their asses off. Anko followed to tie him up and proceeded to give a very "detailed and graphical" explanation, occasionally using genjutsu's to show and "emphasize" certain aspects. What Anko gave was basically an uncensored 18+ and MAA version of the 'TALK'. Naruto blushed so hard that Itachi thought Anko had dipped him in red paint. After that he never referred to her as his girlfriend again.

He still remembers how they became friends.

Genjutsu: Flashback No Jutsu

Naruto was walking not really paying attention to anything around him until he heard a couple kids arguing about something, getting curious he looked closer. He found three kids around the age of 10, most likely academy students that were messing with a little girl. She looked like she was his age. She had neck length dark blue hair and white eyes, trademark of the Hyuuga Clan. Deciding to help her he ran to them.

"Hey, leave her alone" - Naruto said trying to get thugs away from the girl.

"Get lost" – they simply said which made Naruto jump in front of them shielding the girl. Deciding to prove his point he adopted his Border line Apprentice Drunken Whirlpool style defensive stance. His left leg slightly apart from his right one, knees bent, and both hands hanging loosely to side with his back hunched. Like how a drunken person stands)

"Ah the brat's trying to scare us. Let's teach him a lesson" - they said arrogantly and pushed forward. One of boys sent his right arm forward trying to punch Naruto. Naruto simply used his right hand to parry the boys hand out of the way. Naruto then kicked him in gut followed by a neck chop knocking him out. Naruto saw another guy going to academy stance. Naruto knew better. What the bullies didn't know is that mastering academy stance is one of the requirements to learn Drunken Whirlpool.

Naruto simply made a "come at me" gesture with his right index finger. The boy tried a set of punches aiming at Naruto's gut and chest. Naruto dodges effortlessly by swaying side to side. Getting bored Naruto gripped his enemy's right hand and gave a strong clockwise spin to it. Naruto proceeded to turn so that the bully was on his back. Using the momentum gained and his own back as lever, he threw his enemy at wall knocking him out. Poor Bastard

Naruto turned to the last boy who froze his attacks after seeing his friends effortlessly defeated. Naruto disappeared at high genin speed and appeared in front of him and merely said 'BOO!'. The guy pissed himself and ran away. Naruto turning to see the girl asked "Are you ok?"

"I'm f-fine t-t-thank y-you" - the girl stuttered. Naruto didn't know if she was afraid of him but he guessed (correctly) she was just shy. "No problem, I'm Naruto, what's your name?" - He asked purposely leaving out Namikaze.

"H-Hyuuga H-Hinata" - she replied looking at Naruto. Even though she was still young she couldn't help but to blush and look down. Naruto was 6 years old but for lack of better of word was a Greek God Limited Edition according to her or a mini version at least.

"Come on let me help you up" - he said grabbing her hand and pulling her up gently, he noticed that she didn't have the cage bird seal in her forehead, he now remembered that Hinata was the heiress of Hyuuga clan. Now he never really looked into byakugan very close. Curiosity got the better of him and his hand lifted her head by gently touching her chin.

Hinata saw what was like two pools of sea itself. They were simply magnificent. Naruto was more or less now looking as a younger whiskered version of Minato. Hard and sharp Jaw line , Fair skin and those spiky blonde hair with a tint of red done in a fashion same as Yondaime adored his handsome yet still cute face .She simply couldn't help but faint.

Now it was Naruto's turn to blush. Up close he couldn't help but notice that hinata up close resembled an angel, a beautiful lavender angel. Unfortunately the moment ended with Hinata fainting.

Thankfully Ko, Hinata's bodyguard who had seen the entire event in hopes Hinata fought back, came and took Hinata away but not before thanking Naruto.

Genjutsu: Kai

Naruto being heir of Yondaime for now and a chunin level Shinobi already, Ko encouraged them to be friends for betterment of Hinata. They proceeded to become best friends.

Sadly then was when Uchiha Clan massacre happened.

At 5 years old we find our hero wondering how things went downhill. It all started with shishui's death.

Flashback

Naruto was resting and was near to sleeping after a day of training. Shishui's death a weak before didn't affect him that much due to him never having interacted with Shishui before and even once only heard about him from Itachi. There were rumors that Itachi killed him but Naruto refused to believe that.

Anko was in next room. The sound of hair dryer was coming from the room. She was classmate with Shishui but having seen worse thing in her life she got over it. Thankfully even in classroom she wasn't close to Shishui .In a Shunshin Itachi came and directly went into Anko's room. Then the sound of sound barrier being set up came. While not being as good as Naruto, Itachi had become a descent level 5 Fuinjutsu master with help of Naruto. Naruto being the one who had taught Itachi the level 5 sound barrier knew its weakness; he knew he could break it slightly. Torn in respecting Itachi's decisions and curiosity, Naruto chose to satisfy his curiosity. Naruto couldn't hear much beside something about a mission and ... abandoning village on Thursday. Naruto instantly felt a part of him dying. When Itachi left, however Both Naruto and Itachi heard Anko crying her heart out.

Flashback end

Naruto decided to confront Itachi later.

Flashback

Naruto could hear screams and pleas of mercy coming from Uchiha compound. Suddenly there was silence. An hour later he could hear footsteps rushing towards him.

There in his full ANBU attire stood Itachi stained in blood of his kinsman.

"Oni-Chan please stop this foolishness already!" Naruto cried out

"What are you doing here Naruto?" Itachi asked in his usual monotone with a tone of stoicism to it.

"What's happening?" Naruto asked after calming himself

"I killed my clan to test myself" Itachi replied

Naruto didn't say anything just threw shurikens at Itachi in response.

Itachi disappeared and appeared behind Naruto with a tanto pointing towards Naruto's jugular, showing why he was an ANBU captain at 13.

"Foolish little brother" Itachi replied and moved his tanto's blunt side and was about to knock him out before-

"The mission" Naruto said in a broken tone

Itachi stopped

"You were given a mission to annihilate Uchiha clan weren't you?" Naruto rhetorically asked.

"How do you know that" Itachi asked with a sad tone instead of a surprised tone to it, showing emotions for the first time in the night.

"I heard you talk to Anko-Nee-san" Naruto replied. Itachi seemed to accept the answer and motioned him to continue with slightest of nod.

"Who gave it? That bastard of my father didn't he" Asked Naruto angrily, not really thinking at the moment.

"Nar-"Itachi was about to reply but Naruto beat him to it.

"WHY? WHY? Why must he take away everything I hold precious?!" Naruto a quarter asked and a quarter cried while the rest half screamed.

"Naruto what you learnt is an S rank secret which I can't let you delve in further" Itachi said

''Just know what I did was necessary" Itachi replied in a pleading tone.

Hearing that, Naruto decided to just drop the topic. For now that is.

"So" Naruto decided to change topic.

"Did you take the travelling supplies?" asked a grinning Naruto despite already knowing answer. He failed to stifle his giggle though.

"I KNEW I FORGOT SOMETHING!" Itachi screamed to heavens above. Naruto sweat dropped.

Naruto threw a scroll to Itachi. Itachi caught reflexively. It was a green scroll with "supplies" written on it.

"I know you better than you think" Naruto said gaining a hearty laugh from Itachi.

Hearing Itachi laugh, Naruto looked horrified

"What?" Itachi inquired.

"YOU CAN LAUGH!?" Naruto scream asked.

"HEY I AM NOT THAT STOIC" Itachi yelled in reply

Naruto gave a look that said "you think?"

"So what's in scroll?" Itachi asked hoping to change the topic.

"General supplies and Fuinjutsu scrolls up to level 8 so that you may not slack" Naruto replied cheekily despite knowing about the change of topic.

"Let's meet again" Naruto said with a grin, extending his right hand forward.

"Yeah let's" Itachi said with a small smile and accepting the hand

With a shake of hands our favorite blonde saw Itachi leaving and disappearing in shadows of trees casted by the moon. Naruto took time in remembering all the good times with him and he too left but not before wiping the stray tear left below his left eye.

Flashback end

Naruto had only a year left till his escape.

Now Naruto was faced with a new set of problem.

He didn't have any sensei. Surely he could ask Anko for training but after Itachi's event, she had proceeded to fall in depression. Naruto would always check on her making sure she ate properly. But even he could do very limited. Anko had lost weight and there were tear marks on her face. The red eyes were constantly reminding the blonde that Anko was crying persistently. Sure she never cried in front of him but it didn't simply matter even if she did.

Hell she even stopped her "Cut cheek with kunai and lick the cut" act! Naruto would have joked about it but the sad mood around her prevented him from doing that. Naruto knew he couldn't sulk. He had goals and a life to work for.

So Naruto stopped going to Forest of Death unless to check on Anko. Now Naruto didn't have any training place either.

Another thing to worry about was that due to Itachi massacring the police force, Konoha was hard pressed for manpower. So Minato had made it compulsory for every active ninja to complete mission criteria according to their rank. Due to Anko's depression she could not work. Which meant that if she doesn't snaps out soon, she would be jobless with her chakra sealed? Due to her reputation, it would be a matter of time before she is raped. OH HELL NO!

Naruto fortunately came with a solution. Naruto would have Anko make a shadow clone. The shadow clone would take all the D rank and C rank mission available with occasionally B rank in the mix. Naruto always had the shadow clone take missions of short term which were done solo. The shadow clone would take them and pass it onto Naruto and then waited patiently on sidelines. Naruto would then make 2 shadow clones and all 3 of them (2 clones and the original Naruto) would henge into Anko. They would complete missions and had Anko's shadow clone complete paperwork. This way Anko had her criteria completed and Naruto kept the money since Anko was well off for time being. Itachi had left her few thousand ryo before leaving.

As an added bonus Naruto had his first kill. While he had nightmares for weeks he knew he must be strong right now.

Naruto actually happened to overshoot Anko's criteria through the method and kept the bonus that came because of it. Naruto had now a massive booty of 100,000 ryo. For once life was good, it was normal.

Now Naruto had a solid 9 months to train and train. Naruto had solved Anko-Nee Chan's criteria problem for 9 months. Also 9 months were time to his escape plan's triggering. He had more money and supplies than his initial target.

So now Naruto was at-

1- Border Jounin level

2- Fuinjutsu-Level 6

3- Medium jounin level chakra

4- Low jounin level chakra control

5- Money- 100,000 ryo

6- 823 kunai's and 768 shurikens and standard long term travelling plan.

7- Taijutsu -Apprentice level Drunken Whirlpool i.e. Borderline Jounin.

8- Copy of Forbidden Scroll and the entire Namikaze/Uzumaki library.

But question was where to and how to train? Reminiscing about the 8th point he found his answer to the former question.

Flashback no Jutsu

Naruto was at 'home'. Minato and Kushina (he refused to call them parents) had gone to a trip with their children. Walking to the room he walked past a room he just now noticed.

The Namikaze Uzumaki Library

Seeing a blood seal on it, Naruto grinned. The ten blank scrolls each of which were size of Forbidden scroll he had purchased last week were sure to come handy now.

Flashback no Jutsu end

Naruto knew the only reason he was Fuinjutsu level 6 was because he had spent a lot of time in learning was because he had insisted on learning the level 9 technique-Seal Transmutation. Apparently the blood seal opened and Naruto copied every technique he could find. Seal Transmutation copied seals and text from one location to another one. Thank god for that one. Naruto then sealed everything in a bigger scroll and then stored it in a seal on his back which upon activation showed a large intricate looking seal that covered most of his upper back. Naruto was always one to keep precious things close.

That answered the how to train question. But now the question was where? Yes he could work on Fuinjutsu in his room but he needed to do physical training to increase his chakra reservoirs. Sighing to himself he realized there was only one place he could train.

The Namikaze Training Ground

So with the plan he decided to retire to his bed after lifting a level on resistance seal. He let out a range of curses, which were enough to make a sailor blush. After that Naruto proceeded to retire for the night.

Next morning at the ground

It was a new morning for the Namikaze family. At 8 in morning everybody was getting reading for another day of training. The parents were walking forward and their children trailing behind them. The sight upon entering their training ground was not one they would expect. The training ground for the lack of better word was thrashed. In the center there was a kid standing in front of an intact B rank Jutsu training doll. The kid's back to them.

The kid was obviously gathering chakra due to streams of chakra leaking from joints. What confused Minato and Kushina was that how the kid entered their home and how he could despite being of Menma and Yoko's age hold low Jounin chakra reserves at least. The kid then further surprised them by running through hand seals at a speed worth of a Kage. Kushina couldn't keep up with the hand speed and saw only a blur while Minato though could keep up with speed but only saw the number of seals the kid used and not the symbols utilized. 44!

44 hand seals in less than 5 seconds!

The kid then took a deep breath inflating his lungs making them prominent and yelled

"KATON RELEASE: DRAGON BREATH NO JUTSU!"

The result as the name suggested caused the breath of fire he released to take form of a dragon. The dragon proceeded to reduce the dummy to cinders in a show of power.

When the smoke from cindering cleared they saw HIM for first time in what seemed like years.

"Dang, maybe I overdid it" Naruto thought. The Jutsu had nearly burnt away half of his chakra reservoir.

"So...THEY came and worst saw it too" Naruto mentally added sensing them.

While Dragon Breath was a powerful Jutsu what people don't know is that it also blinds the user for a short while, leaving the person open to attack due to being unable to sense people.

When the smoke cleared a figure of 4 feet and 2 inches came into view. The figure was wearing standard Anbu chest armor the instead of the normal white it was a burnt orange color with dark red arm bracers and black pants with black combat boots which were steel tipped. The pouches on both left and right side of his pants meant only one thing. "Ambidextrous" Both Minato and Kushina thought. Ambidexterity is the state of being equally adept in the use of both left and right appendages (such as the hands). Ambidextrous people are very rare in ninja world due to chakra coils preventing brain from developing equally. You see if you have a strong left hemisphere of brain you will become right handed and vice versa.

You must be very lucky to be one.

Generally chakra coils develops one sphere more. But being Ambidextrous meant chakra coils were having uniform development within them which simply meant higher chakra reserves, higher chakra control and higher hand speed as well as complex hand dexterity.

Moving to the figure's face, the kid had piercing cerulean blue eyes, blonde spikey hair and three small whisker marks on both sides of his cheeks. Minato while right now absent minded did notice that the kid's eyes looked very similar to his own, in fact the kid look like him, too much like him.

Much like her husband it was the face Kushina was stuck at. The kid had a very sharp and narrow Jaw line with fairly tan almost sun kissed skin and no baby fat. His eyes were the same cerulean blue her Husband has. All in all he looked like a mini Minato, but with whisker marks.

Putting everything together they both reached a conclusion at same time causing their eyes to widen in realization.

"Naruto!"

SHIT!

"Hey! Who the hell are you!?"The yelling of Menma brought them all to the reality plane.

Naruto merely walked towards him, took a page from Itachi, poked him in forehead and said "stupid ototo (younger brother)" and walked away out of mansion.

"Ototo? How the hell can he be my bigger brother?" Menma pondered.

"He is"

Both children looked to the speaker, their father with wide WTF expression. Their father was stunned while their mother was stunned as well as had tear building at edges of her eyes.

Later That Day

Kushina's POV

Kushina was standing in the kitchen. She was thinking about her son.

Can I even call him that?

After that incident, she felt that Naruto didn't want to part of their family anymore. But the question was since when was he was part of one? Every time when he came to home from training, that is if he came, either he went to his room and left until the next stop. When he walked around the village, he always kept a distance from everyone while remaining quiet and emotionless. She wondered if he had any friends at all. Before the incident, she had completely forgotten his existence.

Wondering how it all began she remember how she had believed Twins needed extra attention due to her experience with the Nine-Tails. As a former Jinchuuriki, she knew how hard to control the Nine-Tails' chakra, but now she wondered if it was all worth it.

Minato's POV

After the incident, Minato realized that Naruto didn't talk to him or his mother ever. He was very distant and cold to everyone, even to his siblings.

It's all because of my foolish mistakes.

Then, there were his other children. After founding about their brother, they refused to train again unless the whole story is told to them. As a result Minato had to dedicate an Anbu squad of ten members to tail Naruto. Initially there was only one Anbu to tail him but they were unable to trail him since he would always disappear. The only reason even now they were able to track him because now there were 10 Hunter Nin trailing him but even now he knew only about his stealth skills and friends only.

How he came to know of his stealth skills bought a smile to Minato's face despite the sad mood.

Apparently when the first Anbu he sent returned to report that he had lost track to Naruto but when he dismissed the Anbu and the Anbu he turned to leave, with the corner of his eyes he saw a paper stuck to Anbu's back.

The paper read

"IF YOU INTEND TO TAIL ME SEND SOMEBODY WORTH MY TIME.

-Naruto"

Naruto would still occasionally escape his best 10 Hunter Nin, leading him to conclude that Naruto had stealth skills at least comparable to Jiraiya sensei. That was saying something because Jiraiya was arguably proclaimed with possessing the best stealth skills in the Elemental Nations.

When he told this to Kushina, she was ecstatic at first and then she wondered who taught him that. She later broke down crying when she tried to remember what she taught him in the first place.

Kushina later asked him if he had any friend to which Minato said he was is said to be close to only 3 people; Itachi Uchiha, Anko Mitarashi and Hinata Hyuuga. While Kushina was on good terms with Anko and knew Hinata as her goddaughter would only be a good influence, it was Itachi she was terrified of. She wondered what would happen if Naruto became like Itachi.

Now, Whenever Kushina looked at Naruto and couldn't help but think that he was the perfect example for the term prodigy. He was intelligent, calculating, secretive and most importantly young but unfortunately he was also lonely. This while was said to be character of an ideal Shinobi, when followed gave a very fatal ninja generally who was Neutral at best and Traitor at worst. Best examples of that were Orochimaru and Itachi Uchiha.

Namikaze Minato was sitting in his office in the Hokage tower doing the bane of all kages- Paperwork. But his mind wasn't focused on it; his mind was focused on something else or rather someone else, that someone being his son, or really lack thereof. Over the years since he had refused to train Naruto he had isolated himself from the family. The requests for training stopped right after that day 2 years ago when he refused to train him, Naruto had not said a word. Back then he didn't care, and that sickened him, how could he not care about his own son? How could he neglect him for so long? How could he even forget his existence?

He sighed, he had to fix this. Maybe if he offered to train him? But then again there was the problem with council.

Flashback-

The council room of konohagakure no Sato.

The history of how the governing Council of Konohagakure was created dates all the way back to when the village was first formed as part of an alliance between the Uchiha and Senju clans, descendants of the two sons of the Sage of the Six Paths, the strongest clans in the world at that time. Hashirama Senju, the leader of the Senju clan, became the First Hokage after he defeated Madara Uchiha, the leader of the Uchiha clan, when Madara challenged Hashirama's rule of the newly formed village. Soon after this, seven other powerful Shinobi clans the

Nara, Akimichi, Yamanaka, Hyuuga, Inuzuka, Aburame, and Kurama joined the village providing it the foundation both economically and militarily for the Land of Fire, its country of origin.

The Land of Fire was the first country to create a ninja village with Konohagakure and in seeing its success other countries would soon create their own. In a short time, the Five Great Shinobi Nations would be born consisting of the Land of Fire, Land of Earth, Land of Lightning, Land of Water, and the Land of Wind, all of which would rise up to become the most powerful countries in the elemental nations with their respective Shinobi villages at the forefront. And though each country was ruled a Daimyo, the leader of the hidden Shinobi village known as a Kage held equal status with the leader of their respective countries. However, upon the formation of these Five Great Shinobi Nations also came the need or desire to be the most dominant country in the world, which led to the First Great Shinobi War.

Soon, the Land of Fire would become involved in wars with all the other Great Shinobi Nations and even with other smaller nations such as the Land of Rain who sought to become a recognized Great Shinobi Nation. In the turbulent years that ensued, many alliances would be made and broken between the various Five Great Shinobi Nations during the wars, but one constant always remained after each subsequent Shinobi war. Konohagakure, the Village Hidden in the

Leaves and the Fire Nation itself were always victorious at the end.

However, a problem soon arose with the start of the First Great Shinobi War, that being who would govern the village? For you see the original Council which governed the Leaf village was comprised solely of the nine founding Shinobi clans. With a representative voting member from each of the eight clans and Hashirama Senju acting as Kage to cast two votes to either create a majority rule needed in village matters in case of a tie within the Council or if the Hokage deemed his votes necessary for the best interest of village. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of war and all the Shinobi clans needed on the battlefield, they would be unable to oversee and govern the day-to-day running of the village. It was because of this that a Civilian Council was created to work alongside the Shinobi Council. Only during wartime would this Civilian Council hold sole responsibility for running the village, while the Shinobi side fought in the war to its conclusion. Thus was born the current formation of the Konoha Council now in power today.

While the Hokage could still had the word is law and certain actions could be dealt swiftly but in case one of the councilor demands knowledge regarding an Shinobi matter, unless it was a war time, Hokage must give the information. In the event Hokage disregards the request a vote can be casted that forces the Hokage to either give into demand or go to exile.

The only way to overrule this rule is to get help from Fire Daimyo.

Also did I mention that in case an heir is unable to take seat Hokage decides the voting for that seat.

During the First Great Shinobi War this structure of the Konoha Council had worked splendidly and in a small way helped Konohagakure emerge victorious in the war by allowing Hashirama and the Shinobi clans to concentrate on winning the war rather than the operations of the village. Unfortunately, the absolute power the Civilian Council was able to command over the village during wartime began to corrupt them little by little with each ensuing war. So much so that they began to quietly pass laws that would not only increase their powers during war or peacetime, but also subtly weaken the Shinobi council and effectively entrench themselves as the sole power brokers within the Konoha Council causing a bitter divide to develop between the Shinobi side and the civilian side of the Council. Now instead of the initial 6 civilians there were 8

So at the time of Kyuubi incident at the hospital, the civilian side of the Council had held 8-8 numerical equality over the Shinobi side. However due to adviser's power to vote and koharu as well as homaru as his loyal puppies, Danzo could cast a single vote causing a power disadvantage against Shinobi side. Even worse was the fact that Danzo Shimura through many means of blackmailing and threats had finally gained total control of the Civilian Council through his root. So the actual numerical advantage was 9-8. And even Minato's ability to cast two votes as Hokage under the disguise of "village head", he could not stop them due to vote being allowed only in case of a tie.

It was only by a fortunate circumstance that this did not happen, as one of the civilian councilmen had died. Such is the current structure of the Konoha Council, but that was about to change, as a new civilian councilman had been just elected.

As Minato had predicted Danzo had got him overruled and asked him about training of his children often calling them Jinchuuriki instead of Menma and Yoko.

However the talk ended prior to how he thought because in Minato's opinion because Danzo almost seemed bored in progress of Jinchuurik's progress which was very unlike of him. The fact didn't go unnoticed by Minato, Kushina (Anbu representative) and Hiruzen.

"So" Danzo started, causing all muttering to go down.

"What can you tell us about the progress of your eldest son?" asked Danzo with a predators look in his eyes…eye.

Minato was taken aback by this question.

"He has another son?" Most people thought.

"A-h ah- he-is just a normal kid you know" answer a Minato rubbing his head sheepishly. While inwardly he was calculating at how Danzo could have known about it.

"No normal 6 year old kid is Border Jounin level"

Now this answer caused any remaining mutterings to go down. Borderline Jounin at 5 was unheard of. It was simply beyond prodigy level.

"How do you know that?" asked Minato with narrowed eyes. His mind was already working on various possible scenarios.

"You didn't refute the statement" Danzo said. Inwardly he was making plans to give a bonus to the spy who give him that information.

Flashback end

After that Danzo asked some general questions regarding Naruto.

When Minato answered and said he didn't give him time, Danzo asked who his sensei was.

Minato answered Itachi Uchiha with his head lowered. The answer caused Gasps amongst people for sure.

Danzo then asked about his hand preference. While an odd question it seemed to fit in the ongoing conversation.

Flashback

"He is ambidextrous" Said Minato with a smile reflecting his pride.

The shinobi including Sandaime-sama were doing perfect replica of gaping fish. All ambidextrous Shinobi's from Konoha were geniuses and missing Nins. The list of known ambidextrous had only Itachi Uchiha and Madara Uchiha, Both legendary S-rank missing Nins.

Danzo had his eyes extremely wide which caused Sandaime and Yondaime to narrow their eyes. They knew even the news of Naruto being ambidextrous couldn't have caused that. IT MUST BE SOMETHING ELSE!

"So do you know if Naruto possess the Uzumaki Ambidextrous Bloodline? If he has that it could explain his skill level rather easily." Danzo asked after calming himself.

THE WHAT?! ?# ?

That was the collective thought of most.

"The answer seems to be no" Danzo mused

"You wouldn't happen to give him to me to train?" asked Danzo without giving people time to react.

That took a while for most to digest. However Kushina wasn't most

"HAVE YOU GONE OUT OF YA MIND YOU HALF MUMMY SHITHEAD!" roared Kushina demonically and hairs waving like Kyuubi's tails, telling everyone why she was so feared.

"Calm down Kushina-san" Danzo waved her away. Please...ever faced Uchiha Madara's killer intent? The man was such a monster that he made Kushina look like a joke.

"Any ways, Let' get back to main topic. My offer stands give the boy to me for "training" and I will remove my influence from council. You can tell me answer tomorrow and give me boy in two years." Danzo said before turning to leave. Danzo wanted Naruto as early as possible but knew if he waited 2 more years then the chance of his activating bloodline on his own was very high.

"WAIT DANZO!" Minato yelled

Danzo stopped, turned around and facing him.

"What's Uzumaki Ambidextrous Bloodline?" Minato asked pretty much summing up questions of everybody.

"It is the bloodline of stealing, so powerful it said to be a gift of Hermes to humans" Danzo said cryptically.

"Oh it's also the strongest bloodline in existence." Danzo said and left the room with a wide eyed council.

Flashback End

Minato sighed as he closed the doors and sat back down in his soft and expensive leather chair. Before the meeting he desired that when he went home he would talk with Kushina about this in hopes she felt the same and that they could bring Naruto back into the family.

What he didn't know was that Kushina felt the exact same about Naruto, she was sad that he didn't consider himself part of the family to the point of only showing his face during dinner, and even then he wouldn't always eat with them or even at the estate but going to a forest for hunting.

She hated what she did, Mito-sama always cherished family and she tried to emulate that, but it seems she didn't do a good a job as she thought.

Minato's thoughts-

HERMES

Minato knew that Hermes was the god of thieves and travelers.

Because Danzo said the bloodline was of stealing, it probably had something to do with of god of thieves.

Minato had later proceeded to dive in Uzumaki Library with Sandaime and Kushina in hopes of finding it.

He found barely anything about it.

Apparently the last person to know in detail about the bloodline was Mito-Sama who told it to Nidaime Hokage in brief who apparently told about it to Danzo.

He also found that it was Mito who destroyed everything about the bloodline for reasons unknown.

From what he could find out though, people had said the bloodline wasn't a bloodline even. It was as if person could make wrath of god descend from heavens itself.

Minato knew that while it was probably exaggeration, it left him wondering if any bloodline could really be so strong.

Then there was the matter of Danzo's proposal. Minato had managed to convince Kushina to give Naruto to Danzo. Not that he was happy but in his mind it was for greater good.

Flashback

Minato knew that Kushina is not going to be happy with either decisions but he needed to do it. It's now or never kind of thing.

"Ay Kushina-Chan" Minato called out to Kushina who was cutting some vegetables.

"What do you need, Minato-kun?" Kushina asked in the same tune.

"I can keep on talking or I can cut the slack. Have you thought about Danzo's offer?" Minato said hurriedly.

He regretted it slightly an instant later it made sense to Kushina a massive killer intent flooded the room.

"Minato-kun you couldn't seriously consider his offer?" asked Kushina in her fake sweet voice.

It would have scared a lesser man but not the Yondaime Hokage.

"It's either Naruto versus Menma, Yoko and the villagers." Minato replied, pulling Kushina in a hug a moment later.

Seeing Kushina's confused expressions Minato decided to explain further.

"If we allow Danzo to take Naruto in root he will lose his control of Council and would also lose the ability to ask for taking over as Hokage."

Seeing Kushina nod Minato continued.

"Moreover if a time comes when a Clan Head dies while no Councilman has died, Danzo will highly overpower Clan laws till a new Clan Head is decided and until then he can get Menma and Yoko in root"

"BUT IT STILL DOESN'T MAKES IT RIGHT" Kushina roared but this time Minato could notice tears flowing freely down her eyes make it seem like a whining instead.

"I know"

With that sentence the almighty Yondaime shed a tear for first time in decade.

"So are you..." Minato left the statement hanging at end for a reason

Kushina merely nodded before burying her head in his crook of neck again.

"But can we afford to give him that weird bloodline he said Naruto had" Kushina asked.

"Naruto doesn't have that bloodline" Minato replied.

He added in afterthought though "as far as I think"

Flashback End

All the while they were unaware of a figure following them in shadows. The figure dispelled

Naruto's POV

Getting memories of his clone, Naruto got sad but remembering his life hadn't been fair from the beginning helped.

"DAMN BASTARD AND BITCH SOLD ME OUT!" Naruto roared

"But what was that shit about a bloodline?" Naruto mused in thought simultaneously.

"Got to initiate the plan earlier" Naruto mused after calming himself

He will leave tonight and no one can stop him PERIOD.

That night-

It was the dark time at night with a decreased ANBU patrol due to some Kumo Ambassador and Hyuuga diplomatic meeting. In afternoon he had got some health tests done to ensure he was good. Thanking the young doctor, what was his name again? Ah yes Kabuto. Kabuto had told that Naruto was in perfect health. While Naruto did feel that Kabuto had an uneasy feel to him but Naruto merely waved it off. That was going to hurt for sure.

Naruto decided to take advantage of the decreased patrol and silently moved out with his infamous stealth.

Naruto knew about weakness of Konoha's patrol fields due to escaping from them like god knows what times. He also knew about the only weakness in Konoha's Chakra Barrier.

Now our favorite blonde was running through Forest of Death. During his run from "home" he sensed two chakra signatures moving quietly through the woods.

Forests, night and chakra are not a good combination - Itachi had drilled that in his head years back

He wondered jokingly if it was a fellow runaway.

Placing two fingers in the ground and focusing in their chakra he found that one of those chakra signatures belong to his friend Hinata.

Getting serious and wondering what she was doing this later in this time of day he went to check up on her.

When he arrived near both of them he saw a Shinobi. It was a Kumo Shinobi from his headband. He recognized this particular Shinobi; it was the Kumo's Ambassador for the new trade alliance between Hyuuga's and Kumo. He noticed that he was carrying a bag in his back in which Naruto could sense Hinata's chakra knew that she was unconscious which meant she was being probably kidnapped.

Quickly thinking up a plan Naruto threw a couple of shurikens at the kidnapper cum Shinobi. The Shinobi easily deflected them all and faced the attacker and was surprised. It was a small kid.

"Hey kid, leave before I kill you. I am an elite chunin, you are no match for me" - the man said arrogantly said.

"Was there even an elite chunin rank?" Naruto wondered

But it was true Shinobi could be a good chunin but Naruto knew he could take him out.

The Shinobi proceeded to launch in a Taijutsu battle against Naruto. Naruto realized one thing quickly.

"The guy sucks in Taijutsu"

The fact that he used Academy style spoke volumes that the guy was barely borderline chunin.

"He must have been selected for his low profile and stealth skills" Naruto concluded in the first minute of fight.

Naruto smirked. It was the perfect opponent for him.

Naruto proceeded to act into his plan. It was simple. Naruto took a kick to torso.

Seeing his opponent fall, the genin err I mean chunin proceeded to take out a kunai.

"ACT HEROIC IN AFTERLIFE ALL YOU WANT, BRAT!" The chunin managed to plunge kunai in Naruto's chest.

But there wasn't any blood. All he saw was just a white light and loud booming sound and then darkness.

"It's a good thing I got Shadow Clone Explosion down." Naruto mused.

Naruto then checked on Hinata. She was drugged and was drugged with a standard knocking out drug. She was out till morning.

He remembered that he still had a village to leave. But then he looked at the face of Hinata. Thinking about all the fun times with her, He ended up writing a pseudo apology and a pseudo "LETTER" to her.

Naruto then turned to leave just as he heard the faintest rustle of a leaf.

"Shit" Naruto said out loud.

Knowing how to react, Naruto quickly checked how many people were there surrounding him. Naruto froze at the result. There was one person only in surrounding and he was standing behind him.

"Kukuku...So the mouse finds the snake." replied the dangerous yet smooth voice of the snake sage.

Done!

Remember to tell me in the reviews whether you guys want Naruto to end up with Itachi or Kakashi
