Death of an AngelDeath,Death of an Angel3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The one thing that binds us all.
The person who all heed his call.
The one who takes loved ones away.
The person who leaves us till our last day.
The one things that cannot be out run.
The person who takes even those who just begun.
Even Angels on earth cannot hide,
For Death cares not for love or pride.
Friend and foe,
Through joy and woe.
All will listen to Death's song,
And all will be gone after long.
He cares not for age,
Be they new born baby, or wise old sage.
He cares not for others or how they feel,
Be they free from taint, or about to keel,
He cares not for the person's life,
Be they full of joy, or full of strife.
Death takes those hated and loved.
Death takes those who want to be forgotten,
and those who want to be remembered.
He takes demons and Angels alike, But most of all.
He took my angel and he took Your Angel.

He's in bed. It's late... or it's early. He doesn't even know really. He's conscious and still, he's not. His body is sleeping, heavy as a rock, drawn into the mattress. His mind is somewhere between deep sleep and fully awake. He's drifting back and forth, like he's in a twilight zone. The movement of the bus is lulling him, making him unable to wake up and he knows he probably should. He can hear voices so everybody's up and about already... or are they going to sleep soon? He doesn't know. His eyes are glued shut it seems and he can't force them open no matter how hard he tries.
All of a sudden, the curtain to his bunk is slowly pulled to the side a little, he hears... or did he dream that. He wonders who's by his side because he can sense them close as he hears voices far away in the background.
"Hey." someone whispers close to his ear and Tommy feels his mouth draw out into a big smile. He recognizes the voice. It's very familiar but he can't place it.

The room felt big. Its size was not spectacular, but its emptiness and the white wall, ceiling and floor gave an impression of space. There was a single white bed in the center of the room. A window with white curtains could be found next to it. The door, which could be found on the other side of the room, was brown, like it had to be more visible than anything else in the room, more visible than the bed itself.
On the bed was a dark grey mare. She was awake, and was staring at the beautiful blue sky through the window with an empty look. Her left front leg was covered by bandages, but no blood was to be seen. More bandagess were on her forehead, her neck and her back. She didn't seem to suffer from physical pain, though. She sighed deeply and took a look at the door.
Her mind was still unclear. She had no idea why she was there, why she had all those bands, and only wanted to get out of the hospital, take a shower and go take a nap. She was awfully tired, even though the sky showed it

It was now mid-day as Naruto Uzumaki awoke from his slumber. He stretched out his arms and gave a big yawn as he emerged from his bed. He then began to rub his eyes as he was trying to figure out what time it was, but the bright sun glowing in his face showed him it was well past morning.
"Dang, it seems I've slept-in again. I really gotta stop doing that. Thank goodness I don't have any missions for today." Naruto hopped out of his bed as he went to change clothes. Once that was done, he went into his apartment's kitchen to get his belated breakfast started.
"Okay, let's see what we have to eat today?" he said as he opened up his pantry and refrigerator. Unfortunately, there wasn't much in both of them to satisf

Chapter 21: Draiko vs. Naruto Pt. 2
Both Naruto and Draiko rushed at each other with full speed before clashing into a fury of punches and kicks. Most of the attacks were just parried by the other as they both tried their best to get a shot in, but so far neither of them were giving in.
However, it wasn't long before the two ended up jumping back to get some space from the other. Draiko stared down at Naruto, who in turn formed his hands into the Shadow Clone hand-sign.
Draiko saw this and quickly grabbed for his sword, but by the time Naruto had already started his attack.
"Shadow Clone Jutsu!" yelled Naruto as a huge cloud of smoke engulfed his body before settling down and revealing twenty Naruto Clones ready to fight.
By now Draiko had already drawn his sword and also prepared for the Clones' attack.
"Tear him apart!" yelled Naruto as the clones rushed at Draiko at all angles.
But Draiko was more than prepared for this. He

Location: Inside Draiko's mind.

The room was dark and had a humid smell in the air.
"Draiko, wake up."
He could hear a voice off in the distance.
Someone was calling his name, but who.
"Whaaaat!?" shouted Draiko as he suddenly lifted himself halfway from the damp, wet floor.
He suddenly was in shock as he took a look at his surroundings.
'Where the hell am I?' he thought to himself.
Draiko finally finished picking himself up off the floor as he continued looking around the place where he was. For some weird reason the floor was all wet and a strange, blue, ambient light lit up the whole place.
"What? Who's there? Show yourself!" demanded Draiko as he cautiously looked around the room he was in. It

Chapter 27: Race to the Finish! Who Will Get the Scroll First?
The team of Leaf Ninjas continued their way leaping through the vast forest, tree to tree, as they made their way to the first scroll's location.
"How much further?" asked Naruto to Sakura.
Sakura then glanced at the map to check their distance from their destination. "It shouldn't be much longer. Just a few more miles before we get there."
As they continued their way through the forest, Hinata suddenly looked behind her as if she saw something following them. But as she scanned the area behind her, there was nothing to be seen but the trees they had just passed.
"Hey, Hinata." asked Kiba. "What is it? You see something?"
Hinata had a very unsure-look on her face but decided to let it go. "No, it's nothing. Probably just a bird or something." she said as she and the others kept moving.
Meanwhile, Draiko emerged from one of the trees he was hiding in. "Phew! That wa

"Cheers!" they all said as they raised their glasses in honor of Naruto.
"Aw, thanks guys." Naruto blushed. "This really means a lot, but you all didn't have to do all this for me."
"Are you kidding?" Kiba said. "If it weren't for you, we all would be under Madara's crazy moon-Sharingan-control-thing!"
"It was nothing really." laughed Naruto.

As the flurries of snow and ice settled to the ground, Ayane opened her eyes and saw that she hadn’t missed her targets. Both Naruto and Draiko were hit by her ice attack and were frozen stiff, with Naruto in an attacking position.
However, both of their faces showed how cold the ice really was. Even Naruto couldn’t bear the freezing temperature.
Both Naruto and Draiko were shivering and chattering their teeth as they stayed in their frozen poses.
“G-G-G-G-Good work Ayane!” Draiko said with a smile.
Ayane quickly approached the two as she began apologizing to Draiko “Oh, Draiko! I’m so sorry, but you told me to do it!”
“It’s ok-k-k-k-kay, my dear. You d-d-d-d-did an exc-c-c-c-c-cellent job. I’m p-p-p-p-p-proud of you.”

Draiko continued to sit calmly as he watched the Leaf Ninja huddle together and think of a way to get the Fire Scroll out of the volcano.
Although he couldn't hear what they were saying, he could tell that they were quickly formulating a plan together.
"Okay guys," said Sakura in the huddle. "I've already figured a way how we can get this scroll. Since it's guarded only by that huge fire wall, we'll have to fly our way over it and simply descend down into the volcano and grab the scroll."
Kiba seemed unsure by this plan. "Are you sure that will work?" he asked.
"Of course it will. I've already seen how high that fire wall can go. Sai will simply create a giant bird so he and Naruto can fly down into the volcano and retrieve the scroll."
"Wait, why does Naruto get to go with Sai into the volcano?" Kiba asked.

Late that night Draiko and his group of Uzumakis had already set up camp just outside of the Leaf Village.
Their tents were pitched, and their fire raging as they talked about their day.
"So, Draiko." said Ayane. "What do you have planned for your match with Naruto tomorrow?"
Draiko stared at their campfire as he began thinking. "Oh, I've got something planned alright. I'm going to show Naruto who he really is, who we are, and that we need his help to achieve our goal. One way or another, I'm going to get him to join our clan. Or die trying."
"Yeah, but you have to remember, he's the Nine-Tails' Jinchuriki. And word is that he's got complete control over its power. It won't be an easy challenge."
"Heh, no need to worry, my dear. Like I said before, I've got it all planned out. When tomorrow comes I'll be ready for him."

It was late in the evening. The sun was just hours away from setting, and the ground was wet from a storm that had just passed.
A young female ninja was running through the corridors of a large fortress as she desperately tried to find an exit.
She wore the green flak jacket of the Konoha Leaf Ninja. Under it she wore a black, long-sleeved shirt and dark-blue pants.
Her blue hair flowed in the air behind her as she ran faster and faster as a shadowy figure was in pursuit of her. No matter where she ran to, that shadowy figure followed.
Finally, she was able to find a way outside. She stopped for a few seconds to get her bearings as she gazed at the sight in front of her. Off in the distance was an enormous watch-tower

'It's been over a year since that day of victory. The day I became free of Madara's control, and although it was tough to do, I still kept my promise to Nagato. Over the past year I have successfully wandered this world and found seven other Uzumaki members!'
Draiko was leaping from tree to tree as seven other figures followed behind and beside him. Draiko's appearance had changed over the past year as he now wore customized clothing to show that he was part of the Uzumaki Clan. His shirt shoulders, his headband, the back of his breastplate and battle skirt, all had the Uzumaki emblem on them. He even started to wear thick black goggles to hide his eyes.
'The first Uzumaki I encountered was Kenji Uzumaki.' Draiko turned to his left to look at one of the people leaping beside him. He was a young man, somewhere around t

Draiko and the Leaf Ninjas watched in shock as Mai glared at them from across the vast field of grass. It was now nighttime as the big, bright, full moon shun down upon them as a thin layer of clouds, caused by Mai, began to pass in front of it.
Hinata seemed to be the most shocked one of the group as she couldn’t understand one thing. “I don’t get it…” she said.
“What do you mean?” asked Sakura.
“I made a direct hit on her with my Twin Lion Fists. How is she still able to use her chakra?”
That’s when Draiko stepped in. “It’s because Mai’s using more than just her own chakra. She’s using a combination of her own chakra and Black Magic.”
“Black Magic?” repeated the group of Leaf Ninja as they then turned their attention to Draiko.

"Let's rest a moment," the silver fox panted, plopping down at the base of a giant pine. His scarlet companion glared back at him- it was obvious she wasn't as keen on pausing to rest.
"If you must, Victor." She grumbled. "But we're almost there. I'd rather not stop now."
Victor rooted around under his red neckerchief until he found his quazzilare. He lit it with a swift movement of his paw and inhaled the smoke deeply. His pipe bounced between his teeth as he spoke.

Naruto and the others continued to stare angrily at Draiko, who was hanging from one of the many stalactites, scroll strapped to his back and a sinister smile on his face.
"Draiko? Where did you come from?!" Naruto yelled.
"Oh, I've always been here." replied Draiko. "I was here when you guys showed me how to get to the underground cave. I was here when you all showed me how to get passed the maze, and when you guys got that scroll out of that nasty little barrier for me."

Crickets chirped in the calm night as a panicked Naruto began running through the thick dark forest as he was being pursued by an unknown assailant.
The look on his face showed just how scared he was of this person if they ever caught him, but no matter what, he wasn't going to let that happen.
He continued to run and leap through the trees of the forest, using the half moon as his only light to help him see where he was going.
As it seemed that he had lost the assailant, Naruto took this time to hide behind a large tree as he tried to catch his breath. But as he sat there breathing hard, the sound of a twig snapping above him quickly made him stop and look up as the assailant fell from the top of the tree and pounced on Naruto.

Naruto and Draiko continued to stare down at each other.
Naruto was still trying to understand all the things Draiko told Naruto, but one thing just didn't seem right. What caused the Uzumakis and Hyugas to become bitter rivals?
"So, you're telling me, that our clan has a rivalry against the Hyugas?" asked Naruto.
"That's right." said Draiko. "And it's still going on right now."
"Really? So tell me, what happened that caused us to become rivals to them?"

"It all started one hundred years ago. Back when our clan was already a successful village and society. You see, Naruto, we didn't just specialize in Sealing Jutsus, we profited from it."
"Profited from it?" asked Naruto.
"That's right. See, once we reali
