Painful Birthday By: Uzumaki Naruto I do not own Naruto. Sorry for being a day late. I wrote this story on his birthday I am submitting it today. Sakura walked down the sidewalks of Konoha and noticed how everyone looked so different. They seemed angry as they walked passed her, and their hands clenched into a tight fist. People seemed sadder and walked with their heads down. As they walked by she heard shouts coming from not to far away. ?You little shit! I?ll kill you!? A man said as he was trying to force himself to run towards Naruto. His two friends held him back and Sakura walked over to the fight. Naruto raised his fist in the air and was soon ready to yell at the man until a strong fist knocked him down, ?Baka! What do you think you?re doing? Stop annoying people.? Sakura said and then sighed. ?But, but, Sakura-Chan?? Naruto tried to explain but Sakura did not give him a chance. Some people began to laugh but still glared at Naruto, wanting to kill him more then ever. ?Come on baka, we have to meet Kakashi-sensei today.? Sakura had said and Naruto nodded his head and followed her. People still glared at Naruto and some just began to walk away, and continue on in doing their own business for the day. ?Naruto, how can you always get in so much trouble?? Sakura yelled and still gave no chance for Naruto to speak. A chuunnin walked passed her and neither Sakura nor did Naruto notice the evil glare he gave towards Naruto. A strong arm grabbed Naruto as the chuunnin passed them by and Naruto turned around to be hit by a strong fist. As Naruto fell down the chuunnin spit at him and walked away. ?Naruto! What did you do this time?? Sakura yelled as she witnessed the whole thing. Naruto pulled himself back up and growled, he raced towards the chuunnin to only hit thin air. ?Bunshin no jutsu?? Naruto said as he was hit from the back. ?You little shit of a demon, you think you can actually hurt me?? As the chuunnin threw another punch towards Naruto, but this time, the punch was directed towards Naruto?s stomach, which took out all the air out of him. Naruto held his stomach and winced in pain. Sakura felt her heart drop as she saw this, the chuunnin wouldn?t stop attacking Naruto. People from the village who witnessed this began to come closer and cheer the chuunnin on. Sakura felt shocked and couldn?t move as she watched the chuunnin beat on Naruto and then others began to join, the chuunnin began letting the village have free hits on Naruto. Sakura felt her rage build up after the shock had passed and she began to scream, ?Stop it! What are you doing this to him?? She felt scared as people began to stare at her; a couple of men still kept hitting Naruto and ignoring her cry for them to stop. The chuunnin ignored her and kept Naruto held down good so he couldn?t escape. One of the men looked closer at Sakura and noticed that she was the girl that had punched Naruto not to long ago. Then he looked at the others that began to glare at her, ?It?s ok, she was beating him earlier, lets finish him. He doesn?t deserve to live.? The man said with a grin. Some people began to cheer and others began to smile. Some laughed happily knowing that the disgrace of the village will soon be deceased. Sakura never had felt so scared and when a arm grabbed her shoulder she froze in shock. This event the people decided to have was horrifying and she did not want to know what the person who had just touched her would do to her. ?Sakura, it is ok, it is me Kakashi.? Kakashi said as he glared at the village. He jumped into the middle of the group smashing the chuunnin?s face with his fist and pulling Naruto away. Another hand grabbed Sakura?s shoulder and it was Iruka-sensei. Kakashi jumped back to the group, holding closely to his chest the unconscious Naruto. Sakura was shocked once again when she saw Naruto, there was blood everywhere on his face, arms, and legs. Kakashi held Naruto tightly to his chest, almost afraid to let the little blond go, in fear that if he did, the boy would die. ?Iruka-sensei, go get the hokage immediately! Tell her that three chuunnin?s had attacked Naruto and encouraged a portion of the village to join in.? Kakashi said as he began to tend to Naruto?s wounds. ?He should be fine for right now???.? Kakashi said as he looked carefully at Naruto. Sakura walked towards Naruto and her eyes began to tear up. Why would people do this to him she thought. Yes he was annoying and stupid, but he did not deserve this. That is all she could think of, as she wanted to just hold Naruto in her arms. Her heart couldn?t stop racing, she had almost lost him to the stupid chuunnin,s and a group of people from the village. Her village, his village, their village had almost tried to kill him! Her mind was racing, she couldn?t stop thinking about the village that he cared for and fought for was trying to kill him! ?Sakura, it is ok, he should be fine.? Kakashi said. People began to yell in rage behind them and came closer; the chuunnin that held Naruto to give people free hits was leading them. Kakashi looked at Sakura and raised her chin with his fingures, ?Sakura, watch over Naruto for me, when help comes, make sure they take Naruto away from here, they would of followed and maybe even attacked Iruka-sensei before he could of reached Tsunade-sama, so I couldn?t let him take Naruto, it would slow him down and he already has one of the three chuunnin?s chasing him.? Kakashi said as he turned around. ?You should feel ashamed for attacking him. He is a ninja of the village, and he is part of the village. You three chuunnin?s will not go unpunished.? Kakashi said and directly to the chuunnin that lead the group. He could easily stop two of the chuunnins, but the one that lead the group was well experienced and trained that he was near jounin level. He would cause Kakashi enough trouble to let the other chunnin and possibly a few people from the village, be able to harm or even kill Naruto, and he could not harm the people of his own village! So he was stuck with very little options and he knew Iruka would be slow downed by the other chuunnin. ?Kakashi, you know well enough the demon will die here.? The chuunnin said. ?Karasu, you have the skills as a jounin, but you?re still lacking the true spirit of one!? Kakashi said as he glared at Karasu. Sakura watched as the village slowly walked behind the chuunnin who lead them. His name was Karasu and his skills as a ninja were jounin level but he did not have the heart and spirit of one, which failed him many times to be a jounin. Sakura began to hold Naruto close to her chest, she didn?t want to let him go, she couldn?t let him go. She pulled a kunai out of her pouch just incase someone had gotten passed Kakashi. ?Kage bunshin no jutsu!? Kakashi yelled and many Kakashi?s had come in place ready to stop anyone that would attempt to get passed him. A hand grabed Sakura?s shoulder and she swung her blade viciously at the person.
