Summary: On October 10th, things don't end the way we all think. The masked man has come to claim the Kyuubi no Kitsune for unknown purposes. Kushina - who had just given birth - and Minato try to fight the man off. Their efforts work as the masked man doesn't succeed in extracting the nine tailed beast. Minato and Kushina live to see tomorrow's sunrise, but at a horrific cost. During the attack, Naruto was targeted by the masked man who threatened to kill the newly born baby if Kushina did not give herself up so that he may have the Kyuubi no Kitsune. Once the boy was back in the couple's possession, Minato and Kushina hastily decided upon something that will alter who Naruto is. To protect him, the couple chose to set him in a boat and leave him to the sea. No one could have known what would happen in the end.
