Re: Naruto Fan Fiction Thread!!
Chapter six: Sasuke's crime.
The panel shows the little cottage where Adam and Eve are living. Behind it, lies a giant garden, where a man in his 50's is working the earth. Next to him another man stays. A young man, around the age of 20 with blonde hair.
Adam: It's not true, Abel. Your brother doesn't hate you. Why would he hate you?
Abel: I don't know father. That's why i am asking you.*
Adam: Quit having such thoughts my son. You two are brothers...watched by the angels of Heavens and by God himself. You should not bring strife into our family, or God will punish us.
Suddenly a voice is heard.
Unknown man: God will punish us? God punished us already, father.
Adam turns around and look at the young man that just appeared behind them. He is also in his 20's and he has also blonde hair.
Adam: God punished us, Cain because we have made a mistake. We commited a sin.
Cain: God should have punished only Lucifer. Not you! Not me! Not mother!*
Adam: I'm pretty sure that Lucifer received his punishment. You should be careful about what you talk son.
Cain: And why is that? I'm supposed to live my life in fear? I don't care about Heavens, God or angels. They mean nothing to me.*
Adam: You will realise some day that they mean much more than you can imagine.
Cain turns around and leaves the place, leaving Adam with a sad expression on his face.
The scene it's switched. It shows the inside of the cottage. At a wooden table, Adam is sitting with his sons. Eve is shown preparing the meal.*
Eve: Tonight...we have vegetables.*
Cain: Vegetables again, mother?
Eve: It's what your brother and father worked all day. They just took them out of the soil.
Cain: Why don't we chop off a lamb?
Adam: Son, once a month we do it because it's a sacrifice for God. Otherwise, it's a sin to take an innocent life.
Cain is shown with an angered face. Inside him the fire starts rising.
Abel smiles : Besides brother...mother worked very hard to have these cooked for us.
Cain throws Abel a strange look. Then, he stands up and leaves the table.
Adam shouts after him: Cain! Cain! Cain get back here!!!
Eve: He left...
Abel: I will go get him!!!
Abel wants to leave but Adam places his hand on his sons's shoulder.
Adam: No, Abel. I will go talk with Cain. You stay here.
Eve looks with concerned eyes at Adam as he leaves the house, searching for his son.
Soon Adam finds Cain. He is sitting on the grass and looking at the moon. Adam joins him.
Adam: What happend Cain? Talk with me. I'm your father. I can help you...
Cain: You cannot help me father.*
Adam: Tell me son. I'm worried about you.
Cain: You should be worried about your God, father. That's all you care about. And that fool, my brother, he follows you blindly.
Adam: My God? He is not also your God?
Cain suddenly stands up and looks at Adam.
Cain: No. He is not my God.
Adam stands up and confronts his son.
Adam: Then what do you belive in, Cain?!?
Cain with disgust: I belive in nothing. I belive in myself. You and Abel...you are weak people. You'd rather be at the mercy of God than control your own lives!
Adam remains blocked for a moment and then he slaps his son on the cheek. Cain is shocked by his father's slap and looks at him with his eyes wide opened.
Adam: From this point...until you prove yourself worthy again...i will not call you my son again!
The panel shows the house again. Several days have passed since Adam slaped Cain. Now, the young man is with Eve inside the cottage.
Eve: My son...your father told me something that i don't want to belive...
Cain: What? He told you about my lack of faith?
Eve: Exactly. Why don't you belive in God my son?
Cain: Don't take it the wrong way...i know that he exists. But i'm not so sure about his almighty power.
Eve: My son, you never saw the Heaven. Trust me, if you'd have been there, your opinion would be entirely different.
Cain: And who's fault is that i never saw the Heaven?
Eve: It's our fault. But, you must live your life accordingly to God's wish. That way maybe you will be received in Heaven and our sin will be forgiven.
Cain: Like Abel does?
Eve: Precisely. Just like Abel is doing.
Cain: No thanks. I'm pretty sure that i will never get to see the Heavens.
Eve: My son...don't talk like that...maybe some day God will forgive us and you and your brother will be able to leave the Earth and go reside in the Garden of Heaven.
Cain: You don't understand something mother. First of all: i despise my brother and his ignorance. Second of all, i do not wish to leave the Earth!
Eve: You despise your brother?!?
Cain: Actually mother...i despise you for giving birth to such a fool!*
Eve: He is your brother!!!
Cain: Hmpf...well mother...
Cain approaches her and places his hands on her waist, while their faces are very close.
Cain whispers in her ear: Maybe i should make myself a new brother...
The next instant Eve makes a step back and slaps Cain.*
Eve shocked: Stay away from me! Get out! You're not my son!!!
The scene it's switched. It shows Cain and Abel working the soil. Abel suddenly gets up and looks at his brother.
Abel: Cain...what is wrong with you? Why do you hate me? I can sense it. You're filled with rage. And it's directed towards me.
Cain: It's not rage, Abel. It's something else. It's hatred.
Abel: Hatred?!? I don't understand...
Cain: Let me explain you. What do you know about our parents? About their sin?
Abel: Well, they told me that the Archangel Lucifer corrupted them. They eat the Apple of Eden. God was mad, because they disobeid his command. Thus, they got banished from Heaven and senteced to live here on Earth.
Cain: Exactly. So Earth it's a prison. For our parents. It's a punishment.
Abel: You can interpret it that you, yeah.
Cain: Athen...why should we stay in this prison? Why were we denied the Heaven? Why? Why are we punished brother?
Abel: God must have a reason.
Cain suddenly enraged: This is it! You stupid fool! You ignorant! God must have a reason? What kind of answers it is?!?
Abel calmly: The only one that i have.
Cain: Fool...you think that your life here on Earth it's perfect. You thinkthat it's all great! Well, it's not! Not for me! And the problem is that father and mother are sharing your flawed opinion!!! Sometimes...sometimes i wish you were all strangers to me! That you were all dead!!!
Abel doesn't hesitate and slaps his brother. His face is filled with shock and anger.
Abel: Don't you...don't you ever talk like that again! Got it?
Cain furiously goes towards him with his hand raised, prepared to land a punch. But he stops in mid air. His face is scared.
Cain thinking: What am i doing?!? I was going to hit my brother! Stop! Stop!!!
Abel looks at his brother surprised. But suddenly a shadow lands exactly behind him. Abel notices how Cain's eyes are opened in fear. Cain notices how slowly blood starts coming out of his brother's mouth. Abel barely moves and looks behind him. Two red eyes with a Spiralling pattern it's all that he can see. The panel shows Abel's full body. His chest was impaled with a sword. A sword that pierced his heart. A sword that ended his life. A sword that sealed his fate.
Cain looks shocked as his brother falls on his knees. Abel looks at the Sun one last time before he closes his eyes. The next moment he falls down. Dead. Forever lost.
Cain stares at the unknown man that just assassinated his brother.
Sasuke: Hello Cain.*
