Dedicated: to my amazing adoptive mother, CapricornKitty1975. I'm grateful for all of the help and support I've received from this wonderful lady. I don't know what I'd do without her. Ya'll should go check her stuff out because she's an amazing authoress.



Ever since the day Naruto left the womb, his life has been nothing except strife. All of the villagers seemed to hate him which is derived from a fear that he will become or is just like Kurama, the kitsune sealed inside of him. Yet, he doesn't even know the creature sealed within him from day one. He has had strange dreams of being visited by a female kitsune locked behind iron bars. It always seemed strange to the spiky blonde haired male. At this point, he's in early adolescence which would be around between thirteen to fifteen years old. He's managed to evade the vicious attacks upon him from the civilians of Konoha. Sometimes, he's unable to escape. It leads to him being pelted by stones, called insults, or worse. He's been able to hide in his makeshift home although at times the villagers stalked him to his home to badger him there as well.

Right now, Naruto is running away from some of the villagers. He zigzagged through the streets. Eventually, he went to the rooftops where he seemed to lose them. When he came to a spot where he thought he'd be safe for now, he relaxed. It wouldn't last for long. Frowning, Naruto hoped that one day he wouldn't be on his own. He knew the Hokage watched over him by keeping tabs on him. He just hoped Sarutobi would assign someone to adopt him or something. He hated always living in fear of being harassed by people.

What he couldn't stand for is being here in Konoha where no one seemed to understand him. He stayed hiding on that rooftop until the close had been clear. Jumping down to land on his feet by doing a leap of faith, he glanced around to see that there's no one in sight. What he couldn't etect is a pair of eyes watching him from the shadows. The serpentine gold eyes belonged to a certain legendary shinobi. Sighing to himself, he went the long way home. It's usually what worked. Upon hearing the vibration of an echo amongst the empty streets, he followed it. It seemed to be coming from a serpent. It sounded like a hiss, bu it's low enough to attract the one it's looking for. When the blonde arrived at the spot where Manda is sitting with its coils underneath it, the huge anaconda stared at him intently.

"What?" blurted out the genin in awe of the summon beast.

"Massster sssummoned me to meet with you," hissed out the serpet, noticing they're in an alleyway out of sight of anyone, noticing that the serpent's signature is heavily masked for no one to find it.

"But why?" asked Naruto, confused. "I don't even know who your Master is."

"No need to know about that, little drake. What you need to know is he will cme for you when you're of age," informed Manda.

"For what reason?" inquired Naruto, wanting to know the truth.

"You won't know until then," hissed Manda, knowing it had to bite the blonde to give him the curse mark before leaving.

"Oh," Naruto felt mesmerized by the serpent itself, not seeing it lower its head down to reveal its venomous fangs before plunging them into the juncture between his collarbone and neck, causing him to grunt from the intnse sharp pain that caused a burning sensation afterwards. "W-What was that f-for?"

"What I had been ordered to do. Now, you know, he will right the worngs that have been committed to you. Until then, remain patient, Naruto. Good things come to those who wait."
