Eyes of a Sage XII/XIII: A New Era is on the Horizon!

(Recap: When we last left, Sasuke had met his fate when he died at the hands of Reibun.  Reibun took Suigetsu (The only remaining member of Taka) back to the Akastuki Hideout…)

Chapter XII: On the Horizon

With Reibun…

“Suigetsu!  Hurry!  We need to get to Madara before he gets upset.” Reibun said with a hint of fear in his eye.

“Whatever, Reibun!  I don’t take orders from anyone!  Not you, Sasuke, and especially not Madara!” Suigetsu replied.

“Whatever, Suigetsu.  When Madara finds out, there will be hell to pay.”

They went silent…

With Naruto…

“You, Naruto Uzumaki, are the toughest person I’ve ever fought.  It’ll be an honor to kill you.”  Genkimaro snickered.

“No, I will not die and neither will you!” Naruto replied.  His power was incredible!  In all of the battles Genkimaro had fought, he had never seen people with this much chakra.  He would have to use his most grand technique, the Iron Bone…

Naruto dashed at him, at a speed so incredible it was almost invisible to the normal eye.  Naruto extended his arm, though it grew longer and wider as it stretched.  He slammed his palm down on Genkimaro’s back…

… and the pain was excruciating.

When he lifted his hand, it was bleeding!  He never bled when he was in a transformation.  He looked at Genkimaro, his back full of long sharp bones.

“Are you wondering why your hand hurts?  It’s because of my Iron Bone Technique.  It makes my bones harder than they can be with my Kekkei Genkai.  You can’t beat me.  You can’t even hurt me!”

Naruto quickly analyzed the situation.  His options: Option 1 – Die at the hands of Genkimaro; Option 2 – Sacrifice himself along with Genkimaro; or Option 3 – Transform into his full Nine-Tailed Fox Form.  He chose…

… Option 3.

The ground began to tremble.  The chakra erupted from Naruto.  His tails grew.  He grew, to the size of the mountain.  Before too long, he was the Nine-Tailed Fox!

Genkimaro, stunned by how powerful Naruto truly was, was taken aback.  He would have to try though.  He raced toward the towering beast.  Naruto tried to slam his paw on Genkiamro, but his size made him slower.  Genkimaro raced up his leg.  The leg, it was so… full of chakra.  He could feel the chakra radiating from underneath the skin.  But, he had to focus.  He jumped up to Naruto’s face, creating a drill of bone on his arm.  He aimed and yelled, “Clematis Dance: Flower!”…

… But Naruto was too fast.

He transformed back to himself.  Before Genkimaro could react, Naruto Reverse Summoned Genkimaro and himself to Mount Myobokuzan.  When Genkimaro opened his eyes, he saw a paradise of plants and amphibians.  Genkimaro was shocked.  How had he got there?

“Where am I?!  Where have you taken me?!” Genkimaro yelled, infuriated that he had been outsmarted.

“You are at Mount Myobokuzan, the valley of the toads.  Welcome.” Naruto replied.

“Why am I here?”

“You are here because you have so much potential.  You should train here and become a Sage.  You would be even stronger.  Besides, do you really want to take orders from Kabuto?”

“No, and, because you spared me when you could have killed me, I will become a Sage as a token of my appreciation.”

“Excellent!  Well, I’m sorry but I cannot stay.  I must help my friend.”

“I understand,” he lied.  He had never had a real friend.  Now, he did.  Naruto Uzumaki.

“Thank you.  Fukasaku, please take care of him.”  With that, Naruto disappeared.

With Kuza…

The field they started  at was in ruins.  There was all but life in the area.  Kuza, barely being able to breathe, spoke up.

“Kabuto, how ’bout we end this battle.  Once and for all?” Kuza asked.

“Fine with me.” Kabuto replied.

The both made hand signs.  The must have weaved those for a few moments, because Kabuto had weaved 40 hands signs!  The prepared to release their jutsu.  Finally, the both yelled…

“Ying Yang Release: Seal!” said Kuza.

“Snake Technique: Snake Bath!!” Kabuto yelled back.

Kabuto’s attack met Kuza’s.  Kabuto’s jutsu was sealed.  Kuza disappeared.

Where is he?! Kabuto thought to himself.

Suddenly, Kuza appeared in front of Kabuto.

“Ying Yang Seal: Release!” Kuza yelled.  The snakes from Kabuto’s jutsu attacked Kabuto.  In seconds, there was nothing left but a empty skull.

After awhile, Naruto appeared beside Kuza.

“Where’s Kabuto?” he asked.

“Dead.” Kuza replied, pointing at the empty skull next to him.

“Hmm.  I see.  Do you want to go to Mount Myobokuzan now?”

“Yes, let’s go.”

With that, they disappeared.

Chapter XIII: New Era (Epilouge)

At the Akatsuki Hideout…

“Lord Madara.  I have killed Sasuke, like you asked.  The only member of Taka left is Suigetsu.”

“Good job, Reibun.  Since you have accomplished this remarkable feat, I pronounce you the new leader of Akatsuki.”

“Thank you, Lord Madara!  I promise I won’t let you down!” Reibun exclaimed.

“Lord Madara, how many Akatsuki members are there now?” Zetsu asked, finally speaking up.

“There are five, if you count yourself as two people.  But, we have more people waiting to become part of Akatsuki.” said Madara, his Sharingan looking more red than ever.

At Mount Myobokuzan…

“Lord Fukasaku, where is Naruto?” Kuza asked.

“I’m not sure, but he had a feeling you’d ask that.  So, he wrote you a note.”  Fukasaku handed Kuza the note.  Kuza opened the folding…

Dear Kuza,

I’m sorry that I cannot see your training through to the end.

I’ve gone back to my village.

They have sent me a message of distress.

Akatsuki is rising again and I am needed.

I promise to check up on you whenever I can.

With hope,

“The Father Sage” Naruto Uzumaki

“Well, what does it say?” Fukasaku asked.

“It says Naruto won’t be coming back for awhile.” Kuza said as a tear welled up in his eye.  He rubbed his eye and smiled.

In the newly formed Yamagakure…

“Jinkoku, where are you?!” a woman yelled.

“I’m right here, momma!” Jinkoku yelled back, running up to his mother.

“Jinkoku Mazuka, when will you learn to not go into that forest?!”

“Sorry, momma.  I heard a noise and went to see.  Sorry if I scared you.”

“It’s alright.  Now come in, it’s time for dinner.”

As Jinkoku walked into the house, he saw a wolf with fur that looked like it was a dancing wave.  It vanished as Jinkoku turned to the house, leaving the door open behind him…

Eyes of a Sage XI: Sasuke’s Demise

(Recap: When we last left, Naruto and Kuza had found Kabuto and had begun to battle.  While Kuza fought Kabuto, Naruto fought a man named Genkimaro, the sole survivor of the Kaguya Clan.  With Taka, the Mist Hunter-Nin had found them and began to battle.  The leader, Tenshi Hyuga, had easily defeated Suigetsu, but now has to fight Sasuke.  With Hidan, he and his son, Koukishi, sparred, with niether being the victor…)

At Sasuke v. Tenshi…

“Well, I believe this will end quickly.  Susano’o!”  Sasuke said as Susano’o appeared in full powered form.

“Well, this must be Sasuke Uchiha, or as he’s known in the Mist Village, Sasuke of the Susano’o.  Even with that, you won’t last long against me.” Tenshi said.

“Hmph!”  With that, Sasuke made Susano’o aim at Tenshi with his crossbow.  “Fire!!”  Susano’o released the arrow, which shot dead on.  Tenshi started to spin and used Rotation.

“Damn the Hyuga.  Well, I’ll still win.  Susano’o, keep firing!”  With that, Susano’o kept firing and reloading his crossbow.  Tenshi barely manages to dodge the first two, but is hit on his side by the third.  “Perfect!”  Sasuke said.  Now, I will end this befor-”  Before he could finish his sentence, his vision fade.  He had gone blind!

“Oh s***!  I can’t see!  Susano’o, you have to be my eyes.”  Sasuke yelled.

“Perfect!  Now I can kill him!” Tenshi thought.

“Now, Eight Trigrams: Tempest Dance of Infinity!”  Tenshi dashed up to Sasuke and used Air Palm to destroy the barrier around Sasuke that the Susano’o created.  Then he jabbed at the Sasuke, moving around before Sasuke can hit him.  As he finished he said to himself, “358, 359, 360, 361!!!!”  Sasuke fell to the ground as Susano’o faded.

“Bu… but how did you defeat me?”

“You and the rest of the Uchiha are all much too cocky.  You believe that you are more important and more special than anyone else.  That’s how I won.”

As Sasuke began to close his eyes, finally finding peace, Reibun appears at his side and stabs his hand through his back.  Once he brings his hand out of Sasuke, he pulls out his heart and implants in into himself…

“Why did you do that!?” Tenshi asked, shocked.

“I did it because Lord Madara ordered me to.  Sorry Sasuke.” Reibun replied.  He walk towards Suigetsu and put him on his shoulder.

“Oh, I almost forgot, I must take your Angel’s Eyes.  Please just hand them over.”  Reibun began to walk back to Tenshi, but a Hunter-Nin appears in front of him and uses Hidden Mist Jutsu, rendering Reibun blind.

“Fine, I’ll just leave with Suigetsu.”  As he said this, he walked towards to woods and disappeared.

“Don’t worry Captain Tenshi, I’ll get you out o-” the Hunter-Nin began to say, but Jugo jump towards him.

“How dare you kill Sasuke.  I cannot forgive you for that!  Die!!”  He lunged at the Hunter-Nin.

“Sorry, but I can’t let you kill Captain Tenshi.  Water Release: Grand Water Torrent!”  Before Jugo could stop, he was hit with that Jutsu and was covered in a torrent of water.  Within seconds, Jugo’s body was ripped apart and dismembered.  He was dead before his head it the ground.  The Hunter-Nin grabbed Tenshi and began to walk in the direction of  Kirigakure…

(Recap:  When we last left, Taka had begun to face Killer Bee, the Eight-Tails Jinchuriki.  In the battle, Danzou was killed.  Now, Bee is in a state of subconsciousness…)

Jugo, Suigetsu, Reibun, and Sasuke walked down a path connecting Kumogakure to the mysterious Uzugakure.  While they walked the people of Uzugakure stared in shock as they carried the unconscious body of the Fifth Raikage, Killer Bee.

“Sasuke, couldn’t we have walked through the woods instead of the middle of a village?” Jugo asked.

“No.  We need to show everyone that Akatsuki is a force to be reckoned with.” Sasuke replied.

“But, the Fourth Great Shinobi War already proved that.  That’s when you, Madara, Suigetsu, and I killed the Fifth Kazekage, Gaara of the Desert, the Fourth Raikage, E, and the Third Tsuchikage, Onoki of Both Scales.  So my question is, what do we need to prove?”

“We need to prove that Taka is a force to be reckoned with.” Sasuke said, the coldness burned deep into his eyes.

They began to walk silently…

With Naruto and Co…

“Kuza, you and Fukasaku stay here.  I’ll go in and find out why Kabuto sent those men to kill you.” Naruto whispered.

“No, I’m coming with you.  I want to know why he did it myself!” Kuza said, trying not to yell.

“Fine.  But you need to stay behind me.  Got it?”

“Yes.”

“Okay.  Let’s go!”

Naruto and Kuza burst into the room.  It was empty, minus the chair in the middle of the room, and Kabuto.

“Oh, hello Naruto.  It was you who was whispering behind the door.  Been awhile, hasn’t it?  Well, it’s a shame I won’t be able to listen to all that you’ve done in the last twleve years.”

“And why is that?” Naruto yelled.  He could feel the Nine-Tailed Chakra starting to leak out.

“Because my, uh… ‘friend’ is going to kill you.  Genkimaro, come out and play.”

A man walked out from the shadows.  He look just like Kimimaro, except he had a huge scar on the left side of his face.

“Yes, Lord Kabuto?  How shall I serve you?”

“Dispose of these insect, now.”

With Kabuto’s permission, Genkimaro hurdled towards them.

“Naruto!  Watch out!” Kuza yelled.

Genkimaro threw a punch at Naruto, but he evaded.  Naruto repeat Genkimaro and threw a punch.  Genkimaro tried to dodge it, but the natural energy around Naruto hit him in the jaw.  Genkimaro fell back, but got up instantly.  Once he was up, Naruto noticed his bone was protecting his jaw.

“No wonder you look like Kimimaro.  You have his Kekkei Genkei, the Shikotsuyaku!  It’s been named the second most dangerous Kekkei Genkei in existance.  But I’m Naruto Uzumaki!  I am the Nine-Tailed Fox Jinchuriki!  I will defeat you!”

“Stop talking and prove it.” Genkimaro sneered, grinning.

Naruto lunged at him.  He pulled out his katana and slashed at Genkimaro.  Genkimaro pulled his humerus bone out and blocked Naruto slash.  Naruto, getting more and more frustrated by the minute, kept slashing at Genkimaro, who easily blocked or dodged them all.  Naruto uses Wind Release: Seismic Air Palm and sends a blast of air into the roof of the room.  The roof crumples and Genkimaro jumps out.

“Come on, Naruto Uzumaki.  Show me what you can do.”  Wanting to end this, Naruto jumps and follows Genkimaro as he runs down the mountain into the forest.

“So, I guess it’s just you and me, Kuza of the Rinnegan.  Come.” Kabuto gestured, using his hand as a signal to ‘come’.  Kuza, enraged by the fact that Kabuto tried to kill him, sped towards Kabuto so fast that when Kuza uppercut him, he sent Kabuto flying thirty meters into the air.  Before he could land, Kuza used Water Release: Violent Water Wave and pushed Kabuto away from the hole in the mountain.  As he got up, he yelled, “Kuza, you just made a big mistake!”.

“I thought you were going to be strong.  I must have just imagined that someone called ‘Lord’ would be able to defeat a 14 year old boy.” Kuza snickered.

“Why you little brat!  I’ll kill you!”

Kabuto made a hand seal and hit the ground with his palm.  The ground started to shake and crack.  By the time the shaking and cracking got to Kuza, half the mountain had been destroyed.

“Wh-what was that Jutsu?!” Kuza asked, surprised at the sheer force of the Jutsu.

“It was Earth Release: Earthquake Slam.  It destroys all earth that comes into contact with it.  If I were you, I’d surreder right now.”

“Pfffft!  Like I’d back down to you.  One of the weakest people I’ve fought!”

Kabuto, not being able to take Kuza’s remarks, uses Ninja Art: Dead Soul Jutsu and reanimates all the men Naruto killed to get to Kabuto.

“Try to beat all thirty-seven of these guys.” Kabuto smirked.

With Hidan…

“This is my son?  This little twerp is my son?” Hidan demanded.

“Yes, he’s your son.  But, he’s got a… Kekkei Genkai…” Chishio’s voice trailed off.

“He’s got a Kekkei Genkai, eh?  Well, let’s see this so called, Kekkei Genkai.”

“Okay.  Koukishi, use it.”

“But mother, you told me never to use it unless it was an emergency.” Koukishi spoke.

“Well, it is an emegency.  Now show your father it, now.”

“Okay.  Blood Style: Black Blood River!”  After he spoke the Jutsu, he spit out a huge amount of blood and it began to flow like a river.

“Impressive.  But, I want to fight you.  See if you can beat your father!  Can you, or are you just a p***y?” Hidan said.

“O-okay.  I’ll try.” Koukishi replied.

“Perfect!”  Hidan grinned and threw his Triple-Bladed Scythe at Koukishi.  Koukishi dodged it, but Hidan twisted the rope connected to the Scythe and it hit him in the arm.

“AH!” Koukishi screamed.

Hidan retracted the Scythe and grabbed it in his hand.

“This battle was over before it even began.  Good-bye!”  Hidan licked the blood on the Scythe and changed to his Jashin Form.  He stabbed himself in his heart, but nothing happened to Koukishi.

“Wh-what’s happening?!  Why aren’t you dead?”

“Because I can change my blood type whenever I feel like it.  After you got my blood, I changed my blood type from Type O to Type AB.  Your Jutsu is useless.” Koukishi replied.

“Well played.” Hidan said.  He has never complimented anyone before.  It felt kinda good.

“Okay.  Now that we’ve had our little fight, can we go inside and eat?” Chishio asked.

“Yes.” Koukishi and Hidan said in unison.

With Taka…

“Jugo, set Killer Bee down here.  I’m going to kill him.” said Sasuke.

“But why.  If you do, Madara will kill all of us!”

“Because I’m not a tool for Madara.  Besides, during the next solar eclipse, Madara shall fall and I will take his place.”

“O-okay.” Jugo said as he layed Bee down.

Sasuke grabbed his sword and started to send lightning through it.  He lifted it up.

“Sorry, Killer Bee.”  As he let his sword go, a kunai hit it and changed it’s course, barely missing Bee’s eye.  Taka turned and they spotted a man… with a Kirigakure Hunter-Nin uniform!”

“Who are you?” Suigetsu asked.

“I’m Tenshi Hyuga.  Leader of the Kirigakure Hunter-Nin and is rightfully the heir to Zabuza Momochi’s Executioner’s Blade.  That’s why I have come.  Suigetsu Hozuki, I demand you give me what is rightfully mine!”

“In what kind of stupid world do you think I’ll hand it over?” Suigetsu sneered.  Perfect.  Sasuke would have to let him kill this Tenshi Hyuga guy.

“I never thought you would.  But now, I’ll take it by force.”  Tenshi dashed towards Suigetsu with a small katana in hand.  Suigetsu grabbed his sword and the blades clashed.  They began to play with their swords, neither able to gan=in the upperhand.

“You’re pretty good with that sword.  Maybe you wouldn’t mind if I kept this one for myself.” Suigetsu snickered.

“Whatever.” Tenshi replied.  He activated his Byakugan and used Air Palm.  Suigetsu was sent back by the pressure of the air.

“This will be fun” Tenshi said, grinning.

At Naruto v. Genkimaro…

“You’re tough.  It’s been an honor fighting you.  But, it’s time for me to end this.  Dance of Seedling Ferns!!” Genkimaro yelled.  He put his hands on the ground and a forest of bones began to sprout.  Naruto jumped back, barely dodging the last bone.

“That was a worthless move.  I guess I’ll finish it.  Transformation: Four Tails!”  Naruto yelled as he fell to all fours.  His skin began to peal and reappear.  He grew a coat of Nine-Tails Chakra and four tails.  Before too long, he was in his Four Tailed Fox Form. Unlike the when he fought Orochimaru and Nagato, he could control this form.  He roared and a burst of Chakra sent Genkimaro’s Bone Forest packing.  Genkimaro got caught in the blast and was sent flying.

“Whoa.  You’re strong.  I’ll have to use my form.  Kaguya Secret Jutsu: Kaguya Form!”  Genkimaro began to change into what Kimimaro’s Curse Seal Level 2, but his skin color didn’t change.  “Now you will die!

Back at Tenshi v. Suigetsu…

“You didn’t put up much of a fight, Suigetsu.  I’ll be taking my Executi-”

Sasuke grabbed Tenshi’s arm.  “No, you won’t be leaving… alive anyways.”

Tenshi, shocked retracted his arm and said, “Utakata, get Lord Raikage out of here and into Kumogakure.  This area isn’t safe for anyone now.”

Utakata grabbed Bee and put him and Bee into a bubble.  They began to float away into the horizon.

(Recap: When we last left, Naruto and Co. had infiltrated Mount Karagi, Kabuto Yakushi’s hideout.  New Taka had just been assigned to capture Killer Bee, someone they previously lost to.  With Hidan, he finally meets his son, Koukishi…)

Sasuke walked into the Unraiyoku Valley, the place he last fought Killer Bee.  Everything was so nostalgic.  Everything was the same as last.  The giant crater in the middle (Courtesy of Jugo.)  Unlike the scene, the battle wouldn’t end the same…

“We’re here.  Be on alert.  Remember, he’s now the Fifth Raikage.  The Kage is always the strongest ninja in the village.” he said, having already activated his Mangekyo Sharingan.

He’d never show it, but his sight was practically gone.  Having used his Susano’o against the Kage’s and Danzou twleve years ago, plus when he and Naruto confronted each other.  This could be the last time he ever saw the light of day…

“Sasuke!  I hear something.  It sounds like Killer Bee rapping.” Jugo whispered, directing Sasuke towards the sound.

“He’s in that cave again.  Suigetsu and Danzou, you take the right.  Jugo and Reibun, you take the left.  I’ll take the center.  Now scatter!”

The groups attacked Bee, surprising him.  Suigetsu slashed him with his sword, creating a huge gash in his side.  Then Reibun used Wind Release: Wind Palm Explosion, sending a shockwave towards Bee.  Bee dodges but get’s caught in Danzou’s Fire Release: Great Dragon Fire Jutsu.  It blasts Bee into the wall of the cave, making the cave wall crack.  Before Danzou can use another attack, Bee appears in front of him and uses Lightning Release: High Voltage.  The electrical blast explodes in Danzou’s face, sending him towards a spike on the side of the cave.  The spike drives through Danzou’s back, impaling his heart in the proccess…

“Sasuke, take my eyes.  I can see that the Chakra around your eyes has depleted.  If you don’t take my eyes, you’ll go blind.  So, take them as a sign of respect.”

Sasuke was shocked, no one had ever showed him this much affection, except his mother and brother.  He instictivly reached for eyes, but before he could reach them, Bee grabbed them and threw a sword at Sasuke.  Sasuke, not having much eyesight, get’s hit in his bicep.  He yells in pain, snapping out of his trace.

“You’ll never get these eyes!” Bee yelled, trying to figure out a good word to rhyme with ‘eyes’.  While he was distracted, Suigetsu attacked him, and once his sword struck Bee’s thigh, Sasuke appeard next to Suigetsu and grabbed the hilt of Suigetsu’s sword.

“Suigetsu, release your sword.  I’m going to zap Bee into Hell.” Sasuke said.  Suigetsu released the sword and as soon as he did that, Sasuke yelled, “Lightning Release: Thousands Volts of Hell!”  Since the sword was stuck into his thigh, Bee went down like a potato.  Jugo picked up his fried body, put over his shoulder and began to carry him.

(Recap: When we last left, Naruto and Co. had just defeated the three ninja, only to learn that Kabuto Yakushi was behind the attack.  Meanwhile, Danzou was debating whether or not to kill himself, while Jugo gets a bad feeling about Reibun.  With Hidan, he and Chishio were on their way to see their son, Koukishi…)

At  Mount Karagi…

Naruto Reverse Summoned Kuza, Fukasaku, and him there.  The mountain was huge, much larger than Mount Myobokuzan.  With Orochimaru’s power, it’s only natural to have a gigantic mountian dedicated to your name…

“Oh my god!  It’s huge!  How will we find Kabuto?” asked Kuza, shocked by the mountains size.

“I’ve already located him.  He’s deep inside the mountain.  He’s also heavily guarded.  Twenty ninja stand in our way.” Naruto said.

“Whoa!  You can see all that with your Sage Mode?!”

“Yes, I can.  And you could too, if you join me at Mount Myobokuzan.”

“Okay.  I’ve made up my mind.  After we destroy Kabuto, I’ll come with you.”

“Great.  Now, let’s go in.” said Fukasaku, hopping up to the opening in the mountain.

With Sasuke and Co…

Sasuke, Suigetsu, Jugo, Reibun, and Danzou walk into a large room with a oval shaped table in the center.  Sitting at the table was Madara and Zetsu.

“Well, we’re all here.  What’s our new mission?” grunted Suigetsu.

“You’re mission is the same as your very first mission as part of Akatsuki.  You must find and capture the Eight-Tailed Ox.” Madara snickered.

“But, the last time we fought Killer Bee, Sasuke almost died… twice!  You can’t expect us to win this time!” shrieked Jugo.  Without Karin, Sasuke would die…

“It’s been twelve years.  You have grown much stronger since then.  I know you can do it.” Madara said.

“Whatever.  There is no way that Killer Bee guy will beat me twice.” Sasuke spoke, half-heartedly.  He wanted to believe that he could beat Killer Bee, but he wasn’t sure.

“Well, you’ve been assigned a mission.  Take it, or die.”

“I choose to accept.”

“Great.  You’re dismissed.”

As they left, Madara started to whisper to Zetsu…

“Do you really think they can beat the Fifth Raikage, Killer Bee?” asked Zetsu.

“Of course not.  But, with Sasuke trying to kill me, it’s perfect.  Having been twelve years since he had the Curse Mark, Jugo won’t be able to save him.  His plan will be foiled.  It’s perfect!”

“And, is Reibun in on the plan.  Or is he going to die with Taka?”

“Reibun’s in on it.  He’ll ‘try’ to help Sasuke, but he gets ‘knocked out’ and Sasuke dies.”

“How evil.  But, what could you expect from the evilest person alive?”

Madara chuckles at Zetsu’s comment.

At Mount Karagi…

“Wow Naruto!  You beat all of them within seconds!  Your training has really worked.  Now let’s get Kabuto.” Fukasaku said, amazed.

With Hidan and Chishio…

“When are we going to get there?!” asked Hidan, annoyed.

“We’re here.” Chishio told him.

As they go into the house, a boy walks up to them.

“Who’s this?”

“Hidan, this is Koukishi.  Koukishi, this is Hidan.  He’s your father.”

(Recap: Within the Room of Fate, while Jugo, Reibun, Suigetsu, and Danzou were accepted, Sai and Karin weren’t.  With Naruto, he revealed he defected from the Leaf.  Fukasaku then begins to train Naruto again, but before they can do any real training, a Potential Sage named Kuza has appeared.  With Hidan, he finds out from Chishio that he has a son…)

In the Room of Fate…

“Well, you four have been selected to be in the Akatsuki.  But, I must warn you, this will be hard.  We have one other member that has already been through the Room.  Now, follow me and you will get your Akatsuki Cloaks.” Sasuke said as he waved for them.

As they walked through the corridors, Suigetsu became nervous.  He saw what had happened to Sai and Karin, and he didn’t want that to be him…

Jugo stared at Reibun, puzzled.  He couldn’t decide whether to trust him, or be careful and not put his life in Reibun’s hands.

Danzou silently weeped.  He never wanted to kill Sai, but if he didn’t, Sasuke would kill him and Sai.  He felt so selfish.  He was always saying that Sai was just as important as him.  But, if he killed him, he was just proving he wasn’t.  His conscience was telling him that it was wrong and he should have let Sasuke kill them both, while his selfish side told him if he ever wanted to live, he must kill.

With Naruto and Co…

“Wind Style: Palm Blast!” screamed Naruto, slamming his palms together, creating a giant wave of Wind Chakra.  The wave blew all three ninjas back forty meters.  Before they could make a move, Kuza used Lightning Style: High Voltage to electrocute them, while Gameken used Water Style: Water Bullet, creating a massive explosion of electrified water-covered ninja.  As the smoke cleared, the largest of the three stood up and pulled up his sleeve, to reveal… a snake summoning symbol!

“Ha ha!  Now you’ll pay for killing my fellow ninja!  Controlled Summoning: Manda!”  As he yelled this, he bit his thumb and smeared the blood on his arm, ending at the head of the snake tattoo.  Then, Manda appeared, but he didn’t look like himself, he looked dead…

Naruto began to run towards the giant snake, but before he got more than 10 feet from where he started, Fukasaku stopped him.

“Don’t get closer.  It’s a corpse.  It has a corrosive a Chakra around it.  If you get to close to the Chakra, it’ll kill you.  You need to use a long range attack.  I know having an affinity for wind makes you a short to mid range fighter.  But, you have a few long range attacks.”

“Yeah, I’ll use Wind Style: Rasenshuriken!  It’s perfect.  Kuza, I need you to distract him though.  If he watches me as I do it, he’ll easily dodge it, but if he’s distracted by you, he won’t pay attention to me, giving me a better chance of killing him.  Can you do that for me?” Naruto said, making his plan as he goes.

“Yes, but what do you want me to do exactly?”

“Well…”

With Hidan and Chishio…

“So, let me get this straight.  I am the father of a 14 year old boy named Koukishi?  He’s also immortal, like me?  And he hates fighting?” asked Hidan.  He didn’t want a son.  Especially one that hates fighting.

“Yes.  But, if he knew what his father was, maybe he’d like to fight, like me and you.” said Chishio, emphasizing the ‘what’.

“I guess.  But, if I have to live with him, he has to kill someone.  You got it?”

“Yes, I do.” she said concerningly.

Back at the Naruto and Co v. Manda…

“Thank you, Lord Kuza, you really helped us out.” said Fukasaku.  He wanted Kuza to come back to Mount Myobokuzan so he could train to be a True Sage.

“You’re welcome, Lord Fukasaku.  But, I should be thanking you.  It was my fight and I would have died if it hadn’t been been for you and Naruto.”

“Don’t forget about me!” said Gamaken, feeling left out.

“Oh, sorry Gamaken, I forgot to send you back to Mount Myobokuzan.  Here you go.”  With a puff of smoke, Gamaken was gone.  “Uh, Kuza.” Naruto continued, “We have a question to ask.  Would you please come to the Mountain and train to be a Sage?”

“Uh, what’s a Sage?” Kuza asked, puzzled.

“A Sage is someone that it one with nature.  They gather natural energy and turn it into Sage Chakra, which let’s you go into Sage Mode, a transformation that increases your power, speed, etc.” Fukasaku explained.

“Uh, sure.  But, I need to find out who ordered these people to attack me.”

“I know who.  It was Kabuto Yakushi.  He’s a medical-nin who can revive dead souls.”

“Then we must find him!” Kuza urged.

“Yes, so let’s go, I’ve already located him.  He’s somewhere on a mountain called Mount Karagi.”

Eyes of a Sage VI: Union of Fate ~ Part I

(Recap:  When we last left, Madara played a game with Sasuke and made Sai battle Suigetsu.  Ultimately, Sai won.  Meanwhile, Hidan told Chishio of his time in the hole, while she thought about telling Hidan of his son…)

Sasuke walked into the Room of Fate.  As he walked in, the room filled with a eerie glow.  The rest walked in.

“Is this… the Room?” asked Suigetsu, barely able to spit the words out.

“Yes, Suigetsu.  You, Karin, Jugo, and Reibun will also have to accept your fates in here.” Sasuke said.

“Okay.  But, I don’t understand.  If we’ve been in Akatsuki for 13 years, why do we have to?” Karin asks, dumb struck

“You must go through the Fate’s test.  If you don’t, you will begin to get weaker.  It’s probably why you lost to Sai.  Now come.”

As they gathered in the middle of the room, Sasuke used a Chidori to make the metal in the weapons attract to him.  As he made his Chidori stronger, the weapons flew at him.

“Just a precaution.  If you aren’t accepted, you might attack us.  Now, Karin is first.”

Karin stepped to the exact middle of the room.  As she did this, a surge of Chakra exploded from the ground beneath her.

“Wh- what’s happening?!”

“It’s okay, it’s looking at your Chakra, if it isn’t sinister enough, the last person to be accepted, me, must kill you.”

As she calmed herself, she started to glow red.

“What does red mean?” she asked.

“It means you must die.  Sorry Karin.” said Sasuke.  He charged towards her, slashing her in half.

“Bu- but Sasuke.  I, I… love you!” yelled Karin.  It was all she could say, before her body went limp and her pulse stopped.

“Okay, it’s your turn Jugo.”  Jugo walked up to the middle and the explosion began.  In a matter of seconds, the explosion of Chakra had ended and Jugo began to glow green.

“What does green mean?”

“It means you live, for now.”

At Mount Myobokuzan…

“Naruto, are you ready for your finally lesson?  You must learn it now, or never.  I say this because you have to get back to your team before Madara strikes.” Fukasaku said.

“Yes, I’m ready.  But, I have to tell you, I’m not going back to my team.  I told them I’m leaving the village.  I’m not a missing-nin, I just can’t stay there.  I can’t risk killing dozens of people for the stupid Nine-Tailed Fox!”

“Okay.  I respect your decision.  Now, to do this lesson.  You must remain completely still, just like you do when you gather Sage Chakra.  But, instead of gathering it, you’re going to let me unleash all your Chakra.”

“Okay, but wouldn’t that unleash the Nine-Tails, wouldn’t it?”

“Yes, but only momentarily.  I’m doing this because we need to find all potential Sage’s.”

“Why?”

“Because the Great Toad Sage received a prophecy yesterday.  It said, ‘You’re child, Fukasaku, will teach a man named Naruto Uzumaki.  Naruto will be the Father Sage.  But, he will bring forth a war that will decide the fate of your world.'”

“So, I will become the Father Sage?  And I will bring forth a war?  Well isn’t that just awesome?” Naruto said, sarcastically.

“Yes, and the war will be between the Sage’s and the Demon’s.”

“The… Demon’s.  I thought they were just a myth.”

“That’s what I thought, until I heard the prophecy.  I can’t tell you anymore of the prophecy, for I will be killed by Gamabunta.  I swore to secrecy.”

“Okay.  But, how would unlocking my Chakra help us find potential Sage’s?”

“Well, as the prophecy said, you shall become the Father Sage.  That has already happened.  The Father Sage has the most powerful power in nature.  He has a connection to every living thing.  Whether it be trees, grass, people, animals, even Demon’s.  With that connection, you have a even more powerful connection to Sage’s and Potential Sage’s.  Your connection is so powerful, you can see who they are, where they are, and what they’re thinking.  As Father sage, you must find all Potential Sage’s back here and teach them.  For now, we need to find the most powerful.  You’ll know who it is because his or her bubble will be the largest.  Now, please let me release your Chakra.”

“Okay.”  With that, Fukasaku made a hand seal and pushed his palm against Naruto’s stomach.  As he did that, Naruto’s Chakra flooded from every pore of his body.  He began to see all the Potential Sage’s, as there are no other Sage’s at the moment.  He saw a boy around 14 years old.  Then he realized, the boys bubble was the biggest.  He also noticed he had the Rinnegan!

“Damn!  Fukasaku, we need to leave, now!”

“Why, have you found them?!”

Yes!  And he has the Rinnegan!  We can’t let him become like Nagato!  Let’s go!  I’ll use a Reverse Summon.”  With that, Naruto used Reverse Summon and they were transported to a desert.

“Oh no.  This isn’t good, not good at all.”

“What’s wrong?”

“We’re in the middle of a desert, there’s no natural energy here.  If there’s no natural energy, then we can’t use Sage Mode to help him.”

That’s not good.  Because, he’s in the middle of a fight!  See?”  As Naruto said that, Fukasaku turned to see the boy fighting 3 shinobi and 1 kunochi.

“Leave him alone!” yelled Naruto, Rasengan in hand.

“Stay out of this!” said the Kunochi.  She then began to charge at Naruto.  Fukasaku jumped into her way and used Wind Style: Ferocious Wind, sending her flying.

“You just messed with the wrong person.  Wind Style: Vacuuming Hurricane!”  The Jutsu made Fukasaku fly into the air, all the while cutting him with the Chakra fused with the wind.  The Jutsu ended, making Fukasaku fall to the ground.

“No!  Lord Fukasaku!  Summoning: Gamaken!”  Gamaken appeared in a puff of smoke, under Fukasaku, just as he plummeted to the ground.

“Thank you Naruto, and Gamaken.  You guys fight the other 3, I’ll fight this girl.”

“Okay” said Naruto.

“Yes, Lord Fukasaku.” Gamaken added.

Back at the Inn…

“Hidan, we have to leave.  You want your revenge on Madara, right?” Chishio said.

“Yes, but I’m hungry!  Why leave now?”

“Because we’ve been eating for 5 hours.  It’s time to call it quits.  Besides, I have to tell you something.  And, no one here can hear it.  Now come on.”

“Fine!”

Twenty minutes later…

“WHAT!?!?  I’M A FATHER!?!?!?!?”

“Yes, but you can;t freak out like this when you meet him.”

“When am I meeting him!?”

“Tomorrow.”

“WHHHHHHHHHHHHHAT!?!?!?”

Chishio sighed.  “I knew this would happen.”

In the Room of Fate…

“Well, Jugo, Reibun, and Suigetsu have been made Akatsuki members.  Now it’s down to Danzou and Sai.  Danzou, step up.” said Sasuke, bored.

Like the ones before him, Chakra swirled around Danzou.  The Chakra disappeared.  He then began to glow green.

“You live.  Now Sai.” said Sasuke.

Just as Danzou, the Chakra exploded.  It disappeared, and Sai glowed… red.

“NO!!!!!  I won’t let you kill me!” screamed Sai.

“Sorry Sai, but I have to do this.  Amaterasu!” said Danzou.  As the black flames of Amaterasu burned Sai, he screamed in agony.  Before 30 seconds were up, Sai’s body was burnt to nothing.

“I’m sorry to make you kill your brother, Danzou.” said Jugo.  Jugo knew his pain.  He only knew because of his own brother, Kugo, who he had killed.

Back with Naruto and Co…

“Yes!  Fukasaku killed the woman!” Naruto yelled with joy.

“Well, we need to help that boy.” said Gamaken.

“Yes, you’re right.  Let’s get ’em!”

Before they could do anything, the boy yelled to them, “Stay back!  I am Kuza of the Rinnegan!  I can not be defeated!”
