Chapter One: Her Arrival

 

 

Village Hidden In The Leaves 

 

Naruto Uzumaki trekked his way through the forest. Lush greens, oranges, reds, and yellow decorated the place signaling that is was the season Fall. Naruto tugged his jacket around him tighter a small frown around his face. 

Which was very uncommon since he was always happy.

The ninja paused in his walking when a very large booming noise reached his ears. A feeling of fear mixed with adrenaline struck his heart when he realizes just how close the sound was. Without thinking he sprinted towards the noise the curiosity already melting within his brain. He dodged trees and jumped over falling logs. The wind whipped at his face seemingly going against them as he grew closer. It only took a few seconds for him to properly locate the cause of the sound and he was very surprised to see what-no who- it was. 

It was a girl…

A very unconscious girl. He tilted his head to the side as a small blush made its way to his cheeks. She was very pretty too. He had never seen her around the village though. He closed his eyes while momentarily pausing to think. He began to narrow out the village.

She seemed about his age, if not maybe even older. He continued to narrow out each villager while thinking of her qualities. Brown skin with wild, curly brown hair. Blue glasses too.

Naruto's eyes snapped open and he let out a small grunt when he realized he never has seen her in the village. So maybe she was a foreigner from another village? But how did she end up in the forest?

Another thing dawned on him and a frown made way to his face again. 

What the hell did she do that made that sound?

It was almost as if the wind was attached to her, swirling around only her. Her breathing was perfectly normal(okay maybe a bit uneven) and she was dressed in some weird uniform. Naruto squinted while taking a few steps forward. She had blue tattoos swirls that even seemed to be glowing! Or maybe they were a birthmark like his. He had no right to judge. 

Not really knowing what to do, he sat across from her and waited. He didn't want to move her to incase she had injuries and he didn't want to alert any ninjas. She might wake up and leave, or the villagers would think that it was another prank. So he continued to wait.

It didn't even take that long. In about half an hour the girl awoke from her slumber.  Her eyes opened revealing rather unfocused (odd) brown eyes. She seemed completely oblivious to his presence and the twigs in her curly brown hair. When her eyes settled on him he gave her his trademark grin.

"Hi my name is Naruto Uzumaki!" he said in the happiest voice he could muster. The girl continued to stare at him blankly not really processing what he just said. Naruto's face followed her confusion when she said something that sounded nothing like Japanese. The girl finally came to her senses and turned toward him fully.

"Na-Ru-To." The girl tested his name on his tongue before nodding to herself, a determined feeling washing over her. Naruto nodded at the broken syllables a smile stretching onto his face.

"Where am I?" She asked a confused look on her face. 

"Konoha! We're in the forest!" He said excitedly and she got even more confused look crossed her face.

"Ko-No-Ha?" She asked and Naruto nodded.

"Yeah! One of the best villages in the Elemental Nations!" He exclaimed while nodding vigorously. The curly haired girl crinkled her nose in response.

"Never heard of it." She said and Naruto fell back comically while letting out a shout.

"Whatdya mean you've never heard of it! Where do you live underneath a rock?" He asked while shooting back up and shaking her shoulders. The girl proceeded to push up her thick blue glasses and gently pushed away Naruto's arm.

"Well, technically where I come from this place doesn't exist." She said in a matter of fact tone and managed to brush a curl away from her face. A skeptic look was all it took for the girl to proceed.

"It seems as if I have done the impossible and have arrived from a complete world. My home is America and I live in a town called Blue Hill. Where I am from you are nothing but a mere character." She said and Naruto frowned for the third time.

Of course, I'm just a dumb side character. I bet its all about Sasuke-teme, Naruto thought bitterly. The girl continued to talk.

"I don't know much but I must say the show is about you and you've inspired many others across the world. I'll leave it at that." The female concluded and eased herself up.

"Now please tell me more about this place." She urged and Naruto stared at her suspiciously.

"How do I know you're not some enemy ninja out to kill me or this village?" He asked while narrowing his ocean eyes.

"Well I don't know how tho place works, but if I were a ninja I would have killed you by now or I would torture the information out of you." She said honestly while leaning back. Naruto gulped nervously and resisted the urge to scoot away.

"But I'm not an enemy, and you look like you can kick my ass anyway." She finished with a shrug and Naruto felt himself perk up at the statement.

"Uh, thanks I guess."

"However, if you still find me non-trustworthy you can still take me to the leader of this home." She said while smiling. Naruto held up his hands and shook his head. 

"No, it's fine. Although I may need to take you to Old Man Hokage anyway, only so we can help!" He said quickly and the girl nodded.

"Of course, I understand."

 ……..

A few hours and Naruto and his newest friend were seated in the Hokage's office. Although the girl seemed a bit angry while Naruto was flustered. Sarutobi Hiruzen stared at the two kids across from intrigued. The girl most definitely looked peculiar with her odd brown eyes.

"And who might that this be Naruto?" He asked and Naruto opened his mouth only to pause.

I never asked her name.

"My name is Sukai Blu Summers." The girl interjected now known as Sukai. She offered a tight smile and slid back into her seat. Sarutobi regarded her somewhat wearily but told her a bit about himself.

"Now where are you from?" He asked and Naruto jumped in.

"She said that we never heard of it! Some placed called 'Murica!" Naruto said while bouncing his leg up and down. Sukai smiled softly while shaking her head. 

"It's America, dumbass," she said with a snort and Naruto paused to glare at her.

"I'm not a dumbass, I'm the future Hokage!" He said while flailing his arms dramatically.

"Yeah, we established that earlier." She snickered before her eyes flickered over to the old man who held a pipe in his hand.

"Hey, old man you're gonna die if ya keep smoking that." She said and Naruto elbowed her in the ribs.

"And you call me disrespectful." He muttered and the brown-skinned girl punched his shoulder.

"That's because you are. I'm actually looking out for this nice old man's health." She retaliated and caught his next punch. She turned back to the leader of the village and smiled sheepishly.

"Sorry, would you like to resume our conversation?" She asked and the old man let out a chuckle while fixing his hat. 

"Of course, now mind telling us how you got here?" He asked and Sukai nodded before letting out a deep breath.

"It started a bit after I got out of school."
