"You shouldn't be so angry. He is already dead and you are complete again. You should be happy."
"You really are a cruel kid."
"I'm just doing my best to reach my goal and if I have to be cruel so be it. And it's not like you have a say in it unless you want to go back on your word."
"I the great Kybi no Yko would never go back on my word. You can do whatever you want I don't care anymore. If you want my power you just have to ask."
"Haha, I knew you would be a good partner. But to officially become partners we should at least know each other's names. My name is Naruto Uzumaki."
He looked at me thinking if he should tell me his name and then he sighed.
"It's nice to meet you Kurama. I have to go now so I'll see you later, bye.
After leaving my mindscape I cleaned up the scene. Removing all the seals and the residue of chakra. I also tweaked Kurama's seal so that no one can sense that I unlocked the seal.
Going home I immediately went to sleep.
[3 years and 6 months later
Iruka called me into the room. Walking in I saw the Hokage, Iruka, and Mizuki.
"Alright naruto start with the transformation Jutsu." Said Iruka
3 clones appeared behind me. Then they said:
Transforming in the 3 people in front of me. Then they said:
In their place appearing a log. I didn't want to waste my time so I just completed all 3 Jutsus. Since they didn't specify which clone I should use, I could use the Shadow Clone Jutsu to pass the exam.
"Very good Naruto, you got a perfect score and you have officially become a Shinobi. Here is your headband. Congratulations."
"Thank you Iruka-Sensei."
"Be sure to be here tomorrow at 9 am to meet your Jonin sensei."
Taking the headband from Iruka I put it on my forehead and left the room. Walking outside I found Shikamaru, Hinata, and Sasuke waiting for me.
"You came out really fast, You must have gotten a good score Naruto-Kun"
"Nah, it was nothing Hinata. I only got a perfect score."
"Why, what did you get Sasuke."
He looked at me with pride.
"I got 95 out of 100 points. I am an Uchiha after all."
"Well it seems that Uzumaki's are better since I got a perfect score and all."
"Tsk, just shut up. You were just lucky."
"That is what a loser would say. But let's forget about the points since we all graduated I will treat everyone too ramen. Let's go!"
Arriving at Ichiraku Ramen everyone took a seat.
"Hello, Naruto. Looking at your headbands it seems like you all graduated, congratulations. So what do you guys want, the first serving is on the house."
"Really? Thank you so much Teuchi-san. I want a big bowl of Miso Chashu Pork ramen."
"1 bowl of Kakuni Ramen please." Said Hinata
"1 bowl of Awabi Ramen." Said Sasuke
"1 bowl of Asari Kinoko Ramen." Said Shikamaru
After we ate our fill we went home. While on our way Shikamaru started to speak.
"We will be joining a team tomorrow, which means that I will probably join the Ino Shika Cho team. That means that I won't be seeing you guys a lot after today."
"Don't worry about it Shikamaru. As long as we stay friends we will be able to see each other every day when we become stronger. Let's just go home and we'll see what happens tomorrow."
"Yeah, I guess you are right."
Splitting up we all went to our respective homes.
I am sitting in class the next morning and Iruka is calling the teams.
"Sasuke Uchiha, Sakura Haruno, and Kiba Inuzuka in team 7."
"Yes! I am with Sasuke-Kun. Take that Ino pig."
"It's not like he'll ever like you, Billboard Brow."
I saw Sasuke looking at our direction with sadness clearly in his face. After we became friends he hasn't become such a douchebag like in the normal series. Even though he still wants to kill his brother and is cold to most people, he at least smiles from time to time and isn't nearly as arrogant.
"Okay quite down. Next up, Shikamaru Nara, Hinata Hyga, and Naruto Uzumaki in team 8."
"Haha, look at that Shikamaru. It seems that fate has been kind today."
Well the one I called fate was actually me. I had a talk with the Hokage and I told him that if he can put me, Shikamaru, and Hinata in the same team I would tell him how to beat his mortal enemy, paperwork. He agreed and after I told him about Shadow Clones he just slammed his head on his desk and he started cursing himself. I just quietly left knowing he will complete his part of the deal.
"I can't believe this happened. Our tree clans are always put together in a team. Could this be a mistake."
"This isn't a mistake. I have asked the Hokage and he said that he has personally chosen the teams. Now the last team. Shino Aburame, Chji Akimichi, and Ino Yamanaka in team 10 since team 9 is still in circulation. Now, wait here till your Jonin senseis come and pick you up."
"I'm so happy to be in a team with you Naruto-Kun, and Shikamaru-Kun."
"Well I'm happy to but it seems like someone else isn't." I looked at Shikamaru
"What, no I'm also happy but I just couldn't believe it."
"Well you have no choice but to believe it. Now you can see us every day as you wanted."
I saw Sasuke walking up to us.
"Will you still be visiting me from time to time?"
After losing everyone he loves Sasuke has become really lonely. And since he didn't want to feel the pain of losing someone he cares about again, he started distancing himself from people. But because we were friends before his clan got massacred, I was the only one he hangs out with and he started to open up to me a lot more. I'm starting to feel bad for playing with his feelings like that, but it is necessary. I'll make it up to him later.
"Of course I will. We are friends after all."
"Thank you Naruto."
We heard the door open and the first Jonin-Sensei came in.
"Team 8 follow me."
