This is just a plot bunny that I decided to post up here. I would call this a one shot but it's quite long. I don't know how or when to divide it in to sections. so bare with me, it's kind of long...
There was the sound of a glass being shattered. Sasuke woke up from the sound of the shattered glass. His parents were fighting again. He knew not to disturb them, so, he turned on the night light. Itachi came in as he always did to check that Sasuke was sleeping.
“Otouto, why are you awake?” Itachi asked the small boy.
“U-um, n-n-nightmare. I can’t get to sleep anyway with all the noise mum and dad are making.” Sasuke replied a bit shaken.
“It’s alright, do you want to play a game to calm down a bit.” Itachi asked. He knew that Sasuke was lying but he didn’t care too much. Itachi couldn’t exactly blame him, the noise their parents were making was extremely loud.
“Yeah! Can we play with the nerf guns?” Sasuke asked very excited.
“I don’t see why not.” Itachi answered the little boy and they both ran to the toy room to get the toy guns.
“Okay otouto, we don’t want to make too much havoc of the toy room so we’ll see who has the best aim.” Itachi told him while getting the target board out from behind a few boxes of toys.
“Nii-san, do you know why mum and dad are fighting?” Sasuke asked.
“I’m not too sure, but they are always fighting over small things so I think its not a problem.” Itachi said to calm the worried child.
“It doesn’t seem like they are fighting over a small thing.” Sasuke said doubting his brother's words.
“And what makes you say that?” Itachi asked. He was getting a bit worried that Sasuke was getting suspicious.
“W-well, I didn’t wake up from a nightmare. It was a loud noise, a smashing glass.” Sasuke confessed.
“You didn’t have to lie, you could have just told me. I woke up from dad smashing his fist on the table.” Itachi said. Itachi took one of the nerf guns and shot straight in the middle of the target.
“Why am I bothering trying to aim well, I’m never going to be as good as you!” Sasuke said with a broken spirit.
“Hey, you’re pretty good for a six year old, and I’ve been doing this for nearly nine years already.”
“But you were always good at it.” Sasuke said a bit upset.
“Not always, I only had these four nerf guns to play with before you came along, you know.” Itachi explained.
“Yeah, but ever since I can remember you’ve always been able to shoot a bullet bang straight in the middle of the target.” Sasuke argued.
“Sasuke, your memory has only been fully functioning for two years now. I’ve been on this earth for twelve, it’s only natural that it would at least be a bit better than you.” Itachi tried to explain the frustrated boy.
“Why are we arguing over this anyway? We’re turning into mom and dad!” Itachi joked. Sasuke laughed then froze. There had been another loud crash from down stairs. He gave his older brother a scared look and tried to talk. Only slurred words that were hard to understand came from his lips. Itachi approached his younger sibling and knelt down to reach the same height of the scared boy.
“it’s going to be alright, I’ll just see what’s going on down downstairs okay?” Itachi tried to sound convincing.
“Can I come with you?” Sasuke asked.
“What if there’s glass everywhere, or you get hurt?” Itachi said.
“C’mon! I may be five but even I deserve to know what’s going on!” Sasuke argued.
“Alright, but prepare yourself for a big shock.” Itachi said in defeat.
“If something bad happens, you’ll protect me!” Sasuke said smiling. He had full trust of his older brother. the boys made their way to the door, down the stairs and to the battle zone of his parents arguing.
“I’ll go in first and you follow.” Itachi whispered.
“Why?” Sasuke pouted.
“To see if it’s okay to go. I’ll tell you when to come” Itachi explained to his little brother. Itachi sneaked through the living room and behind the wall where the kitchen was. He waved his hand signaling hit younger sibling to join him. Sasuke made his way through to Itachi’s side. They both went to the frame of the kitchen door and saw broken plates scattered across the room and two very angry people standing either side of the room. Mikoto turned her head and saw her two boys standing at the door of the room.
“Itachi-kin, Sasuke-kun. Why are you two awake?” Mikoto asked trying to pull herself together.
“I don’t know mum, why were you and dad both throwing plates around the room?” Itachi retorted.
“Itachi...Sasuke...bed...now...” Fugaku managed to say.
“I can’t.” Sasuke said bluntly.
“Not with all the yelling and breaking of plates anyway.” Itachi added.
“ENOUGH OF THE WITTY COMMENTS!” Fugaku exploded.
“It’s true. I woke up from the sound of a plate braking.” Sasuke said defending his sibling.
“Sasuke-chan, we’re done arguing so i’ll put you to sleep.” Mikoto said while leading sasuke out of the room.
“Itachi...go to bed.” Fugaku said still furious.
“No, why should I?” Itachi said starting to get angry.
“Because you deliberately brought Sasuke with you here and make us feel guilty YOU SHOWED SASUKE THIS! I’M GOING TO KILL YOU! ITACHI UCHIHA!” Fugaku bursted out his anger for his son.
“Sasuke-kun came on his own, and we wanted to see what the HELL you two were doing.” Itachi clarified the misunderstanding. Itachi started walking toward the living room when his father yelled;
“ITACHI! GET BACK HERE!” and started running toward him. Itachi started running upstairs to his little brothers room.
“Nii-chan!” Sasuke cheered. Itachi didn’t reply, but instead jumped over his mum and brother and landed next to his little brother.
“Let’s go to bed, huh?” Itachi said while getting under the covers.
“Itachi-kun, you shouldn’t have.” His mum said, already knowing what was going on. All itachi did was turn around and face his little brother.
“He’s coming you know.” She added to her previous statement. Itachi smirked and wrapped his arms around his baby brother. Mikoto sprung to her feet and stood in front of the door, waiting for her husband to burst in.
“ITACHI!” Fugaku screamed, but was muffled by his wife who was waiting at the door. He looked past her head and saw his two boys sleeping soundly. He took Mikoto’s hand off his mouth and huffed at them sleeping in the same bed;
“Smartass.” He let out a smirk and walked off to bed.
The next morning the boys woke up to their dad pounding his fist on the door.
“GET UP! YOU TWO START SCHOOL TODAY, DON’T YOU?” He shouted.
Itachi moaned and got up with Sasuke trailing behind him. Fugaku walked down stairs to the dining room.
“I’ll race you.” Sasuke offered.
Sasuke started running down the stairs while Itachi flung himself down the stairs and bolted to the dining room sitting down like nothing happened. Sasuke came rushing in and sat down angry about how much faster Itachi was than him.
“NO FAIR!” Sasuke pouted.
“You should have known, Sasuke-chan.” Itachi said while ruffling his hair. Sasuke looked away from Itachi embarrassed.
“Itachi-kun you’re so mean.” Mikoto said while serving breakfast.
“Hey, he had it coming.” he replied.
“Itachi!” Mikoto scolded.
“It’s your first day of school sasuke-kun!” Mikoto squealed
“How are you feeling about it?” Fugaku asked.
“Not too excited, but it’s something different.” Sasuke said not showing much interest in the subject.
The Uchiha family ate in peace and the boys got ready for school. Itachi was ready in a matter of minutes, walking downstairs with a towel over his shoulders and soaking wet hair.
“Itachi-kun, come here.” Mikoto said annoyed. Itachi dragged himself to a seat, for he was too tall for his mother's reach, and sat through his mother blow-drying his Jet black hair. Fugaku came into the room and saw the scene. He approached his son and grasped his hair in his hand and said;
“I know you like it long, but you REALLY need a haircut.”
“Leave him alone.” Mikoto said while hitting his hand off her sons lovely hair. She finished drying his hair and tied it up.
“Lunch?” Itachi asked reminding his mum that she had not prepared their lunch. She hurried to make them lunch and put it on the counter.
“Thank You.” Itachi said sarcastically. Meanwhile Sasuke was in his room getting dressed.
“Can you check up on Sasuke-kun?” Mikoto asked her son. He went to his brothers room to see him just dressed.
“Come on Sasuke-chan, we have to leave soon.” Itachi rushed him.
“Here, let me help.” He said while tying his brother’s shoelaces. Sasuke went to the bathroom to fix his hair. Itachi sighed and packed his brother’s bag to speed up the process a bit. He checked the time, It was 8:27. He ran to the bathroom relieved to see his brother’s hair was styled. He scooped him up and ran to the bus stop.
“Nii-chan, what are you doing?” Sasuke yelled embarrassed that his brother was carrying him.
“The bus is coming two minutes!” Itachi yelled back. He kept running until he saw an red haired fellow standing on the side if the road.
“SASORI-kun!” Itachi said happy to see they weren’t late.
“ITACHI-kun!” The red hair boy yelled back.
“Where are your blazers?” a girl with blue hair asked.
“Blazers...” Itachi though.
“It’s all right dude, we’ll just start a fight in front of the bus, just go get your blazers.” a boy with long, blond hair said and threw Sasori on the ground. Itachi bolted back home, bursting in and screamed;
“BLAZERS! WHERE ARE THEY?” Itachi yelled.
“Thank God you came back. Here, now go!” His mother said while giving him their blazers. He pelted to the bus stop, blazers in hand.
“What are you two doing?” The bus driver said huskily. The two boys that were stalling for Itachi quickly jumped up and apologised and went on the bus quietly. The group sat down on the five seater at the back and they burst out laughing.
“Nice thinking Deidara-san.” an orange haired man said.
“Yeah I agree, Yahiko-san. Super Idea, start fighting in the middle of the road, brilliant Deidara-kun I must say.” Sasori said sarcastically.
“Sorry guys.” Itachi Apologised to the group.
“Hey, we did it so you wouldn’t get your heads bitten off by Anko-sensei.” Deidara said giving his friend a pat on the back.
“Knowing her you’d probably get expelled for not having your blazers man!” Yahiko joked.
Sasuke was sitting next to his older brother just listening to them ramble. Deidara walked up to Sasuke and put his hand on Sasuke’s head.
“Who’s this kid?” Deidara asked loudly.
“That’s Sasuke, my little brother.” Itachi said prepared for the jokes that went along with the answer.
“So that’s your Oniisan?” Deidara asked Sasuke.
“Um deidara, its Oniisama.” Itachi retorted.
“Oniisan, you’re so funny.” Sasuke said sarcastically.
“Oh damn Itachi-kun this kid’s got some moves!” Another red haired boy called out from the seat in front of them.
“Anyway, who are you guys?” Sasuke asked.
“Yeah, we have other people in our group, but they’re in high school.” Nagato said. The rest of the bus ride they were joking around with Sasuke. When they arrived at the school Itachi scooped Sasuke up in his arms again to take him to elementary school.
“NII-SAN LET ME GO! I CAN WALK YOU KNOW! AAAARG LET ME GO! LET ME GO! LET ME GO!” Sasuke screamed. Once again Itachi embarrassed his baby brother.
“Shut up. You wouldn’t be able to walk that distance without complaining so I’m carrying you.” Itachi explained over the cries of his baby brother. Eventually they arrived at the school.
“Nii-san, don’t put me down.” Sasuke murmured.
“Sure.” Itachi said continuing to carry his baby brother. Itachi had to stay for the first hour with Sasuke like all of the children’s parents were. The two of them decided to sit down and draw. There was a blond kid causing trouble with the other children. Sasuke started staring at the strange boy thinking that he would be annoying while Itachi had to hide the fact that he wanted to laugh at all the pranks this kid was pulling on the other students. While they were both watching the boy he disappeared. To Sasuke’s surprise his older brother quickly turned around and grabbed the boy.
“Gotcha.” Itachi said calmly.
“LET ME GO!” The boy yelled.
“No.” Itachi replied. The boy groaned and tried to wriggle out of Itachi’s grasp.
“Do you want to draw with us?” Itachi asked the boy.
“Draw...with...you?” The boy asked surprised to hear the response.
“Nii-san what are you doing?” Sasuke whispered angrily.
“Yeah!” Itachi said while smiling.
“Yeah...thanks...” the boy said still surprised of the treatment he was getting. Itachi let go of the child and he sat down and started drawing some people. The blond looked up at the two and said;
“The names Naruto!”
“I’m Itachi, and this is my otouto, Sasuke. He’s going to be your buddy at school” Itachi said happily.
“Huh, Is he your baby bro? Hey Sasu-chan! You’re really quiet.” Naruto teased.
“DON’T CALL ME THAT!” Sasuke yelled.
“And don’t think we are going to hang out, OKAY?” Sasuke whispered angrily.
“Nice one, just loose your friends as soon as you make them because , you know, its all good.” Itachi said annoyed.
“Just leave me alone.” Sasuke muttered.
“Fine. I’ll leave. Come on Naruto!” He said while putting the blond on his shoulders. Itachi started walking around the room, letting Naruto poke at all the hanging pictures of animals. Naruto changed from being a nuisance to a kind, cheery boy. Itachi realised when he first laid eyes on Naruto that all he wanted was attention, or friends. People that would treat him like a normal human being. Naruto was the son of a genius, Kushina Uzumaki. She was always considered a psychopath because of her point of view on everything. She knew everything other people did but when police had suspicions on cases they were working on she would have completely different conclusions that ended up being right. She then found the man she called her husband, Minato Namikaze. They were happily Married and had Naruto. They were happy with Naruto. The general public thought that the family was going do something bad so they got an assassin to try and kill the happy family. The man had claw shaped knives to make it look like they got mauled by a bear. He found Minato first and took his life. Then the assassin found her with her baby and killed her. Just to scare her he gave the poor infant whisker-like scars. So now he is shun down upon society for being the child of a psycopath.
“Naruto can you do me a favour?” Itachi asked.
“Sure, anything!” Naruto said filled with happiness.
“My baby brother has been throwing things us for the past ten minutes and he got a pencil stuck in the roof. So what I need you to do is get the pencil.” Itachi requested.
“Sure, but, even on your shoulders I can’t reach it.” Naruto pointed out.
“Yes but right now you are sitting on my shoulders, try standing.” Itachi advised.
“No way!” Naruto said surprised.
“Yes way!” Itachi replied.
“AWESOME!” Naruto cheered. So Naruto stood up and got the pencil without a problem.
“Got it!” Naruto said while waving it in Itachi’s face.
“Hey Naruto, want to see something amazing?” Itachi offered.
“What is it?” Naruto asked.
“I’m going to make Sasu-chan say sorry.” Itachi told him.
“NO WAY!” Naruto said greatly surprised.
“Yes way!” Itachi replied and headed toward Sasuke. When they got to the other side of the classroom Itachi finally took Naruto off his shoulders and they sat down either side of Sasuke.
“what do you two losers want.” Sasuke said trying to shake them off.
“SAYS THE IDIOT SITTING ALONE NOT MAKING ANY FRIENDS!” Naruto retorted.
“I think you owe Naruto an apology.” Itachi said and Naruto was vigorously nodding his head in agreement.
“No. He owes ME an apology. He had to nerve to call me, a complete stranger, ‘Sasu-chan’. No! I’m not saying sorry.” Sasuke defied his brother.
“Told you there was no way.” Naruto looked down at his feet.
“Excuse us a moment, Naruto.” Itachi said to Naruto while pulling Sasuke away by the ear.
“You know who that boy is.” He said to his little brother.
“Yeah, that annoying kid is that psychopath’s son.” Sasuke answered.
“Did you see his reaction when I asked if he wanted to draw with us?” Itachi asked his little brother.
“Yeah...He seemed...surprised.” Sasuke answered.
“Good. Now, do you know why?” He asked.
“Err...no. It’s strange even for me to see why he was so surprised.” Sasuke replied.
“Because like you, he has never had friends. However, unlike you, he has been rejected by society because of his mother. You know that much. So to see someone treat him like a normal human being was a huge shock. He just wants to have friends. So just be friends with him, He’s actually a really nice person and not annoying if you’re friendly to him.” Itachi explained all this to his baby brother hoping he would follow.
“Let’s go.” Sasuke said with a flat tone walking toward Naruto.
“I’m... I, errm , um...” Sasuke wandered off.
“Come on, it’s not going to hurt your pride as much as you think, not nearly as much as us calling you ‘Sasu-chan’ ” His brother reassured him.
“I’m sorry, OKAY?” Sasuke finally apologised. Itachi looked at Naruto and said;
“You mean it?” Naruto said excited.
Y-yeah...” Sasuke admitted. Naruto grew a huge smile and gave sasuke a hug and celebrated getting his first friend.
“D-do you want to...draw?” Sasuke asked his new found friend.
“Yeah.” Naruto said feeling content with himself. The two children started drawing portraits of each other.
