Naruto left Konoha years ago, and comes back years later. At first, people don't recognize him, which pleases, yet disgusts Naruto. But then, Neji and Hinata come along and recognize him immediately. They all soon find Naruto has become extremely strong, perhaps stronger than Sasuke himself. But what happened to Naruto while he was gone? And what is he so afraid of becoming? -This is a rewrite. If you previously read that one, please forget all about it. This will be a totally different story, and it would be awesome if you didn't mention the last one. Thanks!
