Re: Naruto 461 Prediction / Spoiler discussions
Naruto looked towards the mountains of Iron so far away, he sat quiet for awhile and listened to the wind.
" He is still out there....I'm sure.. I feel the world is shifting, Time of peace is approaching. He must feel it to, that the world is moving on without him. There is no such thing as immortal without bounds. The world binds us and time moves us.
I think this is why he started to move. This is why the war broke out."
Naruto looked at Kakashi again. "Do you remember? We almost had him that time at the temple. If only we knew what we know now none of this would have happened."
Kakashi removes his mask and glares down on Naruto, Naruto looks back, astonished at this rare sight.
"Naruto, Minato once told me something that I think is important for you to know. He said that anything is possible but we must forgive ourselves the past and look for the future to give that answer for forgiveness. It means we must never let our past dictate our future in a negative way, and then, and only then is anything possible, even the world we seek to envision. I have such high hopes for you, and you have full-filled them all except one."
Naruto looks hesitant but serious. "Tell me what Kakashi."
Kakashi leans against the tree, loosing his strength for a second. Naruto stands beside him and let him lean on his shoulders.
"I want you to stop blaming yourself for everything that has happened in concern to this and Sasuke. The world is not perfect. Your intention has always been the correct one."
Naruto looks sad at these words. "I know kakashi....I know. You have given me so much and this is something I will always strive for, a better future in the name of those that sacrificed so much for it to happen. Do you mind if I give my child the memento of both your name and forehead protector? I would want him or her to share in the wisdom and guidance that you have given me over all these years.."
Kakashi removed his bandana and gave it to Naruto. "I would be honored." Naruto held Kakashi and embraced him in a hug, holding him up. "Kakashi, is it time?" Kakashi sighed. "Yes...but you know that.." Tears flow from Naruto's face. " Yes I know, I knew from the time you started to speak of Obito. You hid it well....I couldn't feel you were in such bad shape until that time, even with my abilities. You should have told me Kakashi.." Kakashi smiled. " It wouldn't have made any different and I liked to remising about the past like we did. With this victory today I have no regrets. You will win the rest. I ask one more thing of you of course." Naruto nods. "Like we promised I will look after Samui and little Sakumo, and I will also get you home to Konoha.
"Thank you Naruto. For everything."
Naruto look in front as he thinks of all the things they have done together. "You are the hero of Konoha, everyone know this Kakashi, our kids will know this."
Kakashi smiles one last time I hope Sakumo and your Kid will be nice friends. Sakumo Hatake and Nila Hatake Uzumaki haa? I like the sound of the future....."
"Nila?" Naruto asks.
"Yes, I just know it will be a girl.. Tell Samui I love her..."
Naruto holds onto Kakashi as the last breath leaves Kakashi's body. " I will, my friend." He puts him down by the tree, tears streaming down his cheeks, blending with the rain. Yet another close friend, and teacher ends. "You lived the life of a real ninja, with honor. I'm sure we will meet again, until then I will carry your dreams."
Darkness all around is broken by a light. That light fights it's way to consciousness.
"It's finally time to come home Kakashi." Kakashi moves towards the light and the man he knows is waiting there. As he approaches he is stunned. There are more people at the fireplace. The man speaks. "Welcome home Kakashi, it seems that you got to live longer than me in the end, and you lived a good life. I'm happy. As you can see there is more people waiting for you now." The man does a sweeping motion. By the fire there is two women sitting. His mother and.... " Rin..." Kakashi smiles.
Rin smiles back. "Why don't you come, sit down and tell us all about your adventures."
As Kakashi sits down a thought crosses his mind as he looks around for one more. "We were right Naruto, we were right. But I leave the rest in your capable hands."
And with that Kakashi the Copy Ninja became known as the Legend that won the battle for Konoha's unity, that brought Naruto into the Hokage Seat and turned the tide in the war against Madara.
