"The strength of one's will is dependent on the kind of person who owns it." Such words accurately describe Uzumaki Naruto. However, there is one other person who fits this sentence perfectly: Fuyu Kohana. Ignored for a part of her childhood for something she most likely was not even associated with, she strived, instead, to protect two certain people. One of them, is the vessel of the Kyuubi, the one and only Uzumaki Naruto. While this other someone is named Uchiha Sasuke-- one of the only living survivors of the Uchiha Clan. They were all she cared for... until Team 7 is formed. With new bonds created, Kohana is now being pushed to her very limit with the urge to protect almost everyone she comes across. But with the arrival of new enemies and much darker secrets, will she suddenly turn back from the light? Or will she still give everything to protect the people she loves the most? Disclaimer #1: I obviously do not own Naruto-- just my OCs and the different goings-on/conversations in this story. Disclaimer #2: I do not own the image used for the cover of the story. No one knows its maker either, but all credit still goes to the person, but the edits are mine.
