One insult. One betrayal. One accidental slip, and everything changes. Naruto leaves The Hidden Leaf Village when he's just 12 years old. Wounded and near death he questions himself and his fellow villagers, but in the end he can't blame anyone for his life's pitfalls. Cut off from the rest of the world he feels himself fading when a certain stranger asks a question he'd never thought of. His life is changed forever.
Years later a strange man appears at the village gates. He bares an all-but-forgotten crest from a people who'd supposedly gone extinct twenty years ago. Not to mention, traveling with him are Them. They have a strange way of looking at things and tend to become the center of attention. Even if they're not trying. Find out who "they" are and if they can live through a few assassination attempts by reading on.

**This will have yaoi. BoyxBoy. Don't like, don't read.
*** I do not own Naruto, I only own my OC's. Please be kind and don't try to steal them because I will report you if you do.
