He asked for permission to try to find Sasuke, about a month ago. But it was refused, Lady Hokage didnt want another fiasco involving the Uchiha.
But I have to! You dont understand! He choked pleading, almost on his knees begging
No Naruto.. She replied simply, sighing
No Naruto! Look, Sasukes old enough to make his own decisions, this was his choice, why bother go after someone who doesnt want to be here?
Because I love him! He blurted out
What?! She exclaimed puzzled
N-Nothing! He lied and bolted out the door
Never did the world feel so cold, was their relationship so unstable that Sasuke couldnt tell him anything? So the blonde thought, he own sadness clouded his judgment and decisions.
Why didnt he tell me?! II would have understood, he didnt have to leave me! He cried sobbingly, its not fair... His final words, until the boy cried himself to sleep on the cold solid floor, bah, he never wanted to get worked up, so in love with someone ever again.
And in the looming darkness, a figure stood hovering over the blonde. None other than the man himself, the notorious, Itachi Uchiha. No one around to get in his way of what he desired most, Kyuubi. Kisame? God only knows where he was, probably killing some random door to door salesman or something. No matter, the boy was asleep, he could easily take it, then once in his grasp he would finally be able to achieve ultimate power. He took a kunai, to kill the boy first, he went to plunge it straight into the boys heart,
*poof!* It was a mere clone. Damn. He did not like to be toyed with.
What the hell are you doing here? He asked bitterly
To take the fox. Come quietly His voice with no tone at all, no emotion, naturally if Naruto refused he would ultimately use the Mankaneyou Sharingan.
Naruto, horror stricken, stood there, he knew he could never match up to Itachis strength in his condition (he hasnt slept in a few weeks, finally when he can, look who shows up). Naruto hung his head curling his fist into a ball, he couldnt take it anymore,
Then do so. I wont struggle. Life isnt worth living without Sasuke.... He said softly, he picked his head up, staring sadly at the older Uchiha. His big blue eyes shimmering, big and puffy trying hard not to cry, his cheeks rosy red out of frustration that he cant do anything, and just allowing himself to die so untimely.
... Itachi stood there, a bit on the dumfounded side, taken back. Well it was good for him you could say, now he had the upper advantage for the blonde stood helpless. He went in for the kill, yet, something stopped him for a moment or two. Those eyes, so pretty, and big, his innocence showing brightly through them.
What are you waiting for?! The blonde yelled,
There was no response from the Uchiha. He stood there, a little pink in the face.
*poof* then he was gone in a matter of seconds.
Naruto blinked confused cocking his eyebrow, Eh..? he sighed, thank god... he thought in relief, but in the back of his mind he thought why did he stop? What a weird guy... Naruto laughed, he was a bit happier, maybe the relief of him being spared brought a bit of happiness back to him, in a strange absurd way.
*Back with Itachi (hes staying at a motel if youd like to know, hes too cheap for a hotel )
What the hell Itachi?!what do you mean you couldnt do it? Kisame, his blue fish companion roared
I couldnt do it He said nonchalantly shrugging, Something just came over me thats all
Kisame sighed a tad annoyed, well, what came over you?!
Again, the rather bored Uchiha shrugged, I dunno his face a little pink from the remembrance of those eyes (Narutos not Kisames lol.)
Kisame groaned, Please, please tell me you dont love that Kyuubi kid!
Dont even say that! He snapped coldly, his eyes flickering red
I was just guessing, nothing personal. Not like I meant it Itachi-sama He laughed kidding-like
Itachi sighed, Right...
A long silence settled in the room,
You sure? Kisame asked finally
For gods sake, YES IM SURE I DONT LIKE THAT DAMN KID!! He yelled finally with some emotion finally in his voice
Yes! I said yes! he hollered then walked off to his room as a sign of go away Im gonna sleep now, so no more questions, kthnksbye
The next few nights went as this one had been going, the same. Itachi would stop dead in his tracks and Naruto would stand rather baffled, soon after awhile he became quite bored.
Look are you gonna keep stopping or do something? Naruto asked bluntly
Rather than say anything he blinked and stood there
Im going to walk away now. Does it bother you at all? Naruto said turning around and walking away
Itachi shrugged, no, not really
What?! Naruto spun back around, What do you mean, no not really?! Hello?! Ive got Kyuubi I equal ultimate power! Doesnt it bother you to just let me go?! Naruto exclaimed waving his arms frantically, the strangest part of it all was that the blonde was helping the Uchiha without so dim-wittingly noticing it
Itachi stepped forward, Naruto gulped, Itachi leaned in and hugged the blonde fondly,
Does this bother you? He asked mimicking Naruto
Wellyes, very much Naruto stammered confused
Oh okay He said blankly and in a split-second he yet again disappeared
Did he just hug me? Naruto asked dazed and superbly, utterly confused twitching slightly
Does he like me? He thought running his hands through his hair
Infatuation with Naruto? No it couldnt be if anything he wanted Naruto dead, then once dead, he could then feast upon the o mighty Kyuubi and then there would be no limits to his superior powers, and again, say goodbye to the life you so dearly cling onto. The blonde reassured himself, so surely he was just toying with him until he becomes soft and squishy.
Well, Im not going to fall into his trap! He exclaimed, Or...into his arms again He blushed trotting off to bed.
