Painless (A Naruto Fanfiction) [Completed]
‘This time, I won’t get hurt.’
Asari Kazue is a shinobi who doesn't know pain.
It's not that she's had a soft life- no shinobi does- she's simply physically incapable of feeling it. From the day she was old enough to understand, her family has been teaching her what can hurt her the same way a normal child is taught to read and write. Her cousin, Noriaki, has watched over her the entire time, becoming the protector her blind-brother never could.
As she and her teammates are entered in one of the hardest tests of their lives, however, and she meets a person who seems to be an anchor in her unpredictable world, one thing becomes frighteningly clear.
Just because one can’t feel pain doesn’t mean they can’t be hurt.
‘I’m not going mad, not yet.’
Kurama Jun has lived his entire life aware that one day he’d probably go crazy.
To those who know him, he’s just another ticking bomb. In an effort to keep his freedom he pretends to be unaware of it all, as if the world around him isn’t as fragile as cracking glass. As the darkness within him grows stronger, however, it slowly becomes impossible.
He can only hope that when it shatters, he’s the only one to break.
‘He said I could play family- but he never said I could stay.’
Miki has been taken into the Gekko family and has done her best to put her past behind her. As a result, she puts on a carefree attitude and to most of those around her, it seems as if she’s fine.
The darkness that threatens Konoha, however, starts to shatter the world she’s built around herself. When an old enemy returns, she’s forced to confront not only feelings that she’s buried deep within her regarding the past she’s left behind, but also a different set of feelings.
Ones that could shatter the fragile friendship with the one person she’s not willing to lose.
