Chapter 8: A King and a Love
“I will not allow the marriage. Why should I let my son marry another man?” Naruto stood flabbergasted at Fugaku’s words. His mouth hung open and his eyes widened with outrage. The young king would have yelled thoughtlessly at Sasuke’s father if Minato hadn’t swiftly stepped between them. Instead, Naruto grinded his teeth and forced himself to return to the etiquette of a respectable leader.
Fugaku bitterly continued, “Any other man in my kingdom, and I wouldn’t object to the marriage. He, however, has responsibilities to the throne, his country, and his fam
Chapter 7: A Prince and a Proposal
Only the few individuals that understood the emotional chaos that raged beneath the pale, stoic mask of an Uchiha would see Sasuke for what he was truly doing as he sat alone in his room. The young prince was pouting. His usual cool glare shimmered in anger and his posture rigid but perfect. How could Kit offer him a bride when it was obvious as to how he felt? Had he not made it obvious enough? Though he sat motionless, internally, the prince was pacing around the room. Sasuke knew he needed to calm down and think about what was truly important. Even if it cost him the chance at becoming
Chapter 6: A Prince and a Snake
“What do I owe the pleasure of an Uchiha’s visit to my humble land?” The long tongue slipped behind thin lips. The beady eyes framed by purple eye shadow raked across the prince’s body.
“I want information on the treaty you made with the Hidden Leaf Nation.” It was very difficult to stare this man in the eye. There was something about his white skin amongst grey stone that greatly disturbed the prince.
“No you don’t.” His pink tongue flickered out as the Serpent King hissed.
“You want to bre
Chapter 5: A Prince and a Raccoon
The throne room hummed with the council’s whispers with Fugaku’s subtle approval. The graying king sat proudly at his throne and announced, “Prince Sasuke has astounded us all with this feat, but there is one more quest I demand fulfilled.” The young prince internally gloated when he received a nod from Itachi in surrender. Sasuke’s joy was drowned in turmoil once the King continued, “Upon this day, one year from now, one of you shall be King of the Fire Nation and by your side you will present your Queen. The last task I would have of you, my sons, is t
Chapter 4: A Fox and a Fabric
There was little to be said amongst the Uchiha family members. Sasuke was used to the inevitable silence that fell after the kittens charming display. He glanced to his brother’s face to find his eyes returning to the King. At the very least, Sasuke was pleased that his kitten had been deemed worthy enough to catch Itachi’s attention. The silence continued as the kitten was transferred into the King’s hands and then to the Queen’s lap. Mikoto beamed as she held her new pet. The Queen stroked the tiny kitten with one finger as it curled up on the armrest.
Chapter 3: A Fox and a Cat
The months slipped quickly after the night of that mysterious drink and the two royals became close friends. Tucked away from public sight, into the lush south east forest, sat a glistening lake. The mirrored surface was barely disturbed by the soft ripples from a boat floating in the center. This small rowboat was carved, bejeweled, and crafted as expertly as any object from this kingdom. It was not out of pride or greed, but for the beauty and art. This was how the people of this nation lived and that is how their ruler could be resting on that boat, alone with a friend.
Sasuke lounged across plush
Chapter 2: A Fox and a Prince
On a normal day of growing familial tension, Sasuke reported to the throne room. His parents majestically stood at their thrones, the council grumbled at their seats to the left of the room, and Itachi was positioned before the ruling sovereigns. Sasuke took his place beside his brother while the King and Queen calmly took their seats. Their outfits all held a similar theme of black and blue with the familiar fan crest. Itachi’s fan crest, however, sat above a single red cloud with a white border. A glance to his mother allowed him to evaluate that she knew little and was here for support. Her han
Chapter 1: A King and a Problem
“Greed destroys men; men destroy nations.” An aging man sat with his head in his hand, distraught by the foreboding actions of his eldest son. “How am I to protect my family and keep my home safe from him? In my greed, I made him.”
This old man was not a beggar or a merchant; he was Fugaku Uchiha, King of the Fire Kingdom. He looked as many of his blood ancestors have for many generations: black hair and eyes, pale skin, slim frame, and the legendary Uchiha scowl. For Fugaku, his peppered long hair and ferociously etched scowl were his outstanding features They say he got
