Author's Note: A Sasodei/Akatsuki version of Disney's Treasure planet! With story twists, of course. I really hope you'll like it! This Fan-fiction will have shorter chapters than I usually write, so I'm expecting this will turn out to be about 30 chapters long.
'On the clearest of nights, when the winds of the etherium were calm and peaceful...'
A very big, majestic merchant ship sails into view. Yellow solar sails powered with solar energy, glittering almost more than the stars of the galaxy, help the ship calmly sail through the universe. 'the great merchant ships, with their cargos of Arcturian solar crystals, felt safe and secure. Little did they suspect, that they were pursued by...' Suddenly a smaller but very dangerous-looking ship, with blood-red pointy solar sails flies up behind the merchant ship, silently.
A shadow of a man is seen. He's calmly staring at the big ship as they soar closer to it. 'And the most feared of these pirates, was the notorious Uchiha Madara.' As he turns around, his two red eyes twinkle red, and a wide, evil smirk is visible on his lips. The dark-haired man has a black pirate hat on his head, along with an expensive outfit fitting a professional pirate. There's not only red in those eyes, but also skill and danger. 'Fire!' the pirate yells with his dark voice, rising his sword in the air. At this, the small ship swoops up next to the much bigger ship, firing its cannons at it, causing several explosions to take place on the ship. When the pirate's consider the ship damaged enough, they take place right beside the big ship and a loud, violent fight between the pirate's and the passengers of the merchant ship takes place.
Two clear eyes, holding a deep tone of shimmering baby blue, view the chaos with great interest and satisfaction.
Deidara was currently up late. The five-year old boy should have been asleep long ago, he knew that. His mother had even been nice enough to let him stay up a few minutes extra, to draw a bit, before going to sleep. But Deidara really hadn't been able to help it! The story was his favorite, he had to listen to it! So, after his mother had tucked him in, kissed him goodnight, and left the room, Deidara had quickly gotten up, snatched his favorite book from the bookshelf in his room, and lied down on his bed before opening the fascinating hologram-book. He had decided to just listen to a little bit of the story, since staying up later than he should always made that feeling of guilt pop up in Deidara's stomach. But as soon as the narrator had started telling the tale, Deidara knew he was stuck, and the thought of his mother was completely forgotten. Eyes and mind both caught by the holographic 3D pictures dancing before him.
The cool pirates fought with the merchant people who were putting up futile resistance, as the narrator continued speaking;
'Like a Candarian Zaftwing overtaking its prey-'
A sad, disappointed frown appeared on Deidara's small lips, as he almost automatically snapped the book shut, silencing the sound of the action in the book, and the narrator.
Deidara's mother was wearing a rather stern look, standing in the doorway of her little child's bedroom. He had stayed up? Again? This had to be the third time she walked in on him this week, listening to that book, playing with toys or drawing. Did he really have that much energy in him? "I thought you were asleep an hour ago!" Sighing, she entered the room, careful not to step on any of the toys lying around on the floor. Messy little kid... But he was really sweet, and she loved him. But he really had to learn what 'bed-time' meant! "But mom!" The blonde boy looked up on his mother with a begging, cute face, clutching the book to his chest after sitting up.
His mother, Mari, just stared at him, trying to keep her angry-mask on. But who could say no to those adorable eyes? That begging little innocent voice? No one could. Not even she. And it was his favorite story, wasn't it...? "Please? I was just getting to the best part, un..." The blonde woman tried staring at him for a little longer, but found her angry look was slowly melting away, and decided to give up. "It's not even worth trying to say no, is it? You stubborn little kid," Chuckling slightly, she saw how a victorious look appeared on her sons face. Alright this was the last time she was letting him stay up this late... He would have problems waking up tomorrow. "Move it!" She smirked slightly as he wiggled over a bit, allowing room for her to sit down with him in her lap.
Hugging her precious little boy close she hum's slightly, putting a loving kiss on his head, as he opens the book again, his excited look re-appearing.
The sounds of the book speeds up as it resumes the interesting story, letting the mother and her child listen to the narrator speaking in a deep, calm voice; '
Like a Candarian zaftwind overtaking its prey, Madara and his band of renegades swooped in, out of nowhere...' The pirates cause more shots and chaos upon the merchant ship, and they eventually get to their goal. A treasure filled with gold and jewels of all shapes and colors is poured out onto a tabletop. Uchiha Madara sinks his hands into the valuables, and gives a maniacal laughter of pleasure and joy. The looting was successful. The ravaged merchant ship is left to burn to ashes, and the pirate ship quickly sails away from it. 'And then, gathering up their soils...' There is suddenly a flash of light, and the pirate ship had disappeared into thin air! '...vanished, without a trace.'
"Whoooa..." Deidara and his mother mumbled in unison, looking at each other. The excited and amazed look in Deidara's eyes making Mari's heart pretty much melt.
They turn back to the story, and there's now a greenish-hued planet, with two rings encircling it, being shown. The planet moves closer and closer, and Deidara's eyes seem to widen more and more.
'Madara's secret trove was never found, but stories have persisted that it remains hidden, somewhere at the farthest reaches of the galaxy, stowed with riches beyond imagination: The Loot of a Thousand Worlds...'
Looking up from the holobook in wonder, Deidara's eyes probably would never look wider or more excited in his whole life, as he whispered with the narrator, in unison: "Treasure Planet!"
Closing the book silently, the same look was plastered on his face for a few seconds, until his mother pinched his little nose to wake him up from his daze. "Okay, that's enough." She smiled sweetly at him, putting him down from her lap as she moved to sit on the corner of the bed, putting a kiss on his cheek. "Good-"
"How, mom?" The energetic little boy still had that look on his face though, and was caught in the tale about 'Treasure Planet'. It was fascinating yet so confusing to him... "How do you think Captain Madara did it, un?" He snickered evilly as he stood up on his bed, grabbing his bed covers, "How did he swoop in out nowhere-" Suddenly he crawled under the covers, as if hiding from his mother under them. "And vanish without a trace!" His head popped up a bit though, and Mari chuckled a bit as she played along to please her son. "I have no idea, Dei!"
Pulling the covers away, she quickly made a move to tickle him, but Deidara giggles and turns away from her. "... Come here you little-" He starts laughing as he feels his mothers hands and fingers all over his stomach and sides, tickling him to death. Well, almost! It really tickled, and her sadistic laughter sounded quite funny too, only causing him to laugh even more! "M-m-mom, un-!" He tried, his laughter stepping in front of his words, not letting him talk normally.
Finally she stopped, a smile on her lips as she let him lie down comfortably before pulling his covers up for him. Deidara returned the smile, letting his mother tuck him in once again. "Time for my little spacer to go to sleep. If he can."
"Do you think someone will ever find Treasure Planet?"
A small sigh escaped her lips, even though her smile didn't seem to vanish. She rose her brows slightly, giving him a rather skeptical look. "Sweetie, I think it's more... Like a legend." He was obviously too young to understand, but she'd prefer not lying to him... The serious look Deidara gave her made her realize it didn't really matter what she would say. He was confident the treasure existed. "I know it's real, un!" And as stubborn as he was, he would probably never change his mind. "Fine," She chuckled, stroking his cheek with the back of her hand slightly. She moved her hand to brush away his bangs from his eyes, running her fingers through his blonde, soft, shoulder-length hair while whispering in a secure tone, "It's real."
She stood up straight and got out of the room. Turning around to close the door, she left it open a bit, to look at him curling up under the covers. She couldn't describe how much she loved him. Her only child. She never imagined being a mother could feel so lovely sometimes. It was hard, it was, especially in her situation. And Deidara wasn't the luckiest child out there. Still, looking at him when he was smiling, laughing, excited or happy... It always made her realize having a child hadn't been the biggest mistake of her life.
"Nighty-night, mom!" The little boy grinned happily at his mother, who smirked slightly as she replied "Goodnight, Dei."
In fact, it hadn't been a mistake at all. She treasured Deidara more than anything, and would make sure he would always be happy. No matter what happened to their family.
"I love you too!"
With that, she shut the door.
Deidara let out a little, content sigh, closing his eyes. Treasure planet... The loot of a thousand worlds... It had to exist, it had to! Oh, he would do anything to find that treasure one day! Go on an awesome adventure, sailing with a big ship, in search for the mysterious treasure...
Eyes shooting open, Deidara decided it had been long enough since his mother left. Giggling to himself in excitement, he reached under his pillow, grabbing the holobook he had put there before. And after crawling in under the covers again, he let his hands open the book, and let the narrator's voice fill his ears once again.
'There are still nights when the winds of the etherium, so inviting in their promise of light and freedom, make one's spirit soar!'
