Many years ago....

The Kingdom of Uruk 

A blonde man lay on a throne as he looked at the green haired woman playing with his lion in front of him.

"Have you ever thought about what you want to do in the future, Gil?" Enkidu said as she stopped playing and looked at the golden king.

Gilgamesh raised an eyebrow as he looked at Enkidu. "What do you mean?"

"Well, I was thinking if you ever want to step down as king..."

Gilgamesh scoffed. "Why should I?"

Enkidu looked down sadly. "W-Well, I don't want the people to talk bad about you."

Gilgamesh chuckled and took a sip from his wine. "As long as the kingdom is safe, it does not matter if the commoners hate my guts. As long as they are safe, it's okay." Gilgamesh smiled sadly. "Their safety is the most important thing to me. If I have to be a tyrant to ensure their safety that is fine with me."

"You're a good person Gil."

The lion roared as if agreeing with the green-haired woman's comment.

Gilgamesh scoffed. "I'm not, but it is you who is a good person." Gilgamesh said as he caressed Enkidu's cheek gently with his hand. "As long as I have you with me, I don't fear anyone not even those foolish Gods."

Enkidu giggled.

Present Day...

Elemental Nations - Konoha 

Naruto opened his eyes and gazed at Enkidu who was sitting next to him during the exams. "Is it really you Enkidu?"

Enkidu hummed.

"Prove it."

Enkidu extended her hand towards Naruto. A clay lion appeared in her hands.

Naruto smiled gently. "I have missed you."

Enkidu smiled. "Me too Gil."

Suddenly the window shattered and a woman stood next to Ibiki.

Naruto ignored her introduction and continued talking to Enkidu. Anko's eyebrows twitched and threw a kunai towards the two; however, to everyone's surprise, a sword deflected the kunai's direction and then disappeared in golden dust. Naruto glared down at Anko and several gates opened around her. All sorts of weaponry surrounded her. "How dare you interrupt our reunion mongrel!"

Anko wanted to reprimand the blond for his insult; however, she was too scared to move. His stare made her feel inferior and what was more terrifying was the strange weaponry that was coming out of thin air. It felt as if a predator has found its prey and in this case the prey was her.

"We're leaving." Naruto said as he took Enkidu's hand and started heading towards the door.

Enkidu giggled. "Alright, my king!!"

Everyone looked at the two leave and let out a breath that they didn't know they were holding. They're insane!

As Naruto and Enkidu were heading towards the next location of the exam, the blonde looked at Enkidu.

"So how are you alive? I saw you crumble to mud in my arms." a tear slid down Naruto's cheek.

Enkidu smiled sadly. "I don't know. One moment I remember dying in your arms and then I find myself in the middle of an unknown forest. I heard an individual with powers like yours has appeared and also sensed your aura, and so I followed it and it let me here."

"I see. Promise me you won't leave again." Naruto said.

"I promise Gil." Enkidu said and kissed the blonde's cheek.

Naruto blushed and quickly turned away. This made Enkidu giggle.

Everyone looked at the odd scene with wide eyes; suddenly they felt the air change around them. Their faces paled when they saw the familiar weapons surround them. "You didn't see anything."

They nodded furiously not wanting to get killed.
