Chapter Two is up! Check it out here !! ----> ( Part 2 )
Well this is my first try at a fanfic, i've been inspired by alot of people and thought i would give it a try.
~ Thread of Hope Poem ~
How did it come to this
after all we have been through
two of a pair on opposite sides,
From the very start
with passion we lived
watched each others backs
we are closer then brothers!
Now we have to fight each other
shall we trust our fates to the hearts of each other?
No matter what let our lives begin
No matter what may the best man win,
we were once in this together, but now we know
we will be friends forever. It's been you and me against the world
but we never thought anything would be this hard
Time's running out with everything hanging in the balance
We will show them what we are made of,
as we fight with our hearts!
I swear I will hold onto that Thread of Hope,
that one day we will stand together, as friends again!

'How could it come to this..'
~ Far, far from the village known as Konoha, two figures stood in front of eachother, in a dusty, endless plain of sand. The endless sandstorm raged on, as the two blood-covered figures drew their final breath, and fell to their knees..
- - Four Years Ago - -
A boy, around the age of 13 lay down in a hospital bed wrapped in bandages.
He was asleep, plagued by the nightmares of his lost cause..
Suddenly an old, funny looking man appeared in the window..
He was suited in a red vest, with a white shirt underneath. He wore a headband, with the symbol "Oil' written in the center. His hair was large and spikey, and was tied in a spiked-ponytail going down below his waist.
Naruto woke up with a shock, leaning upwards quickly and looking around frantically.
Naruto: 'Pervy-Sennin!? Where is Sasuke!?'
He yelled eagerly, waiting for an answer..
Jiraiya looked at Naruto with sorrow in his eyes, he obviously knew what Naruto had gone through..
Jiraiya: 'His gone, to Orochimaru'
The shock in Naruto's eyes grew, and his eyes slowly began to water..
He looked down, and noticed Sasuke's headband on his lap..
He placed it in his palms, staring at it for a few seconds, and began to sob.
Naruto:'I was supposed to bring him back.. I promised!'
He tightened his grip around the headband, thinking back to the battle..
Jiraiya sighed, and eventually put his hand on Naruto's shoulder
'You never had any parents or siblings, you were alone from the start! You couldn't possibly understand what i'm going through, so mind your own business!'
Jiraiya: 'Don't hold it against yourself Naruto, it wasn't your fault..'
Naruto: 'NO! I never go back on a promise, that's my ninja way!'
Naruto looked up, his eyes brighter then ever.
Naruto: 'I won't give up, I will bring him back to the village, I promised!'
He looked back to the headband.
Naruto: 'I swear, on my life. I will bring him back! I will hold onto that small
thread of hope,
that we will stand together as Team 7 again!'
~ More then Three Years Later ~
Naruto knelt down, at the end of a destroyed battleground with debris lying everywhere. Huge shards of rock were splitting out from the ground, covering the entire battlefield as if the heavens themselves had opened up. Thick dust was polluting the air, limiting vision to a very small degree.
Sasuke stood there, standing over the top of Naruto, glaring down at him with his Sharingan activated.
Sasuke: 'Hmph.. Your so weak..'
Naruto was very weak, holding a deep wound in his stomach.
He coughed up blood, as he struggled to utter two words..
Naruto: 'Sasuke.. please..'
Sasuke slowly slid out his blade, getting ready to deliver the final blow. He held the sword above Naruto's head, and pulled it back preparing to kill Naruto.
Sasuke: 'I thought your resolve was strong, but it just turned out you were the same as everyone else.. My hatred is stronger then you, so die now knowing you failed!'
He yelled these words, and swung his blade down towards Naruto's neck.
Suddenly a huge burst of wind sent Sasuke flying backwards, but he quickly regained his footing to see the Shinobi Alliance rushing to Naruto's Aid.
Sasuke turned around, letting out a 'hmph' before sheathing his sword as he walked away.. He slowly faded into the thick dust that surrounded the battleground, out of the Shinobi's sight.
Naruto's sight was blurry, and he began to go unconcious..
The last thing he seen was Sasuke's figure in the distance.. Yet again escaping him...

I hope you enjoyed, this is my first try at a fanfic so ALL criticism is defiantly welcome and accepted. I know the start is already a part of the original manga, but it is necessary for the base of the fanfic.
Also if you can, try to point out any grammar mistakes so I can fix them ( I'm a major grammar nazi and HATE spelling things wrong
I will probably get to work on chapter two some time throughout the week, so add me and i'll be sure to send you a link when i make it!
