Over in Tazuna's living room, a meeting was taking place between team seven, with a conscious Naruto, Tazuna, Tazuna's family, Zabuza, Haku, Sora, Riku, and Kairi. Kakashi started the inquisition of the last three. "What just happened on the bridge?"
"That man had control over or was being controlled by heartless. The leader of the heartless, who was that pale green woman, allows people with evil intentions on different worlds to be controlled by heartless, or control of heartless if they are powerful enough. It always starts out as control of the heartless, but the longer they are under a person's control the harder they are stop from controlling the person. That man must have recently been given the heartless, and he felt like flaunting them." Riku said.
"You said that the woman gives the control to people from different worlds, does that mean you are from a different world also?" Sakura inquired.
"Yes, we are. But that is all we can say on that matter in order to protect the world order." Sora replied.
"Those weapons you and the blonde had, what are they?" Zabuza wondered.
"What my friends and I have are what are known as keyblades. They are a weapon manifestation of the light in our hearts. They are the natural bane of creatures of darkness and one of the few weapons that can harm them. Another way of harming them is if a person has a strong enough will, and the strength to back up your will. Why your friend has one means he was given it, or he resisted the darkness." Sora answered.
"What happened to the heartless? When I went to the bridge, there were no bodies on it." Inari asked.
"Heartless are the hearts of people that have given into darkness, or have fallen prey to a heartless attack. When a heartless is destroyed the heart is released where it does one of two things. One is go to the heart of its home planet. The other is to find its body and recombine with it. It only goes the heart of the planet when it cannot return to the body because it is dead or the bodies turned into another creature of the darkness known as nobodies. Nobodies only happen to those with strong wills that have been attacked by heartless. They are more like the original person the stronger the will of the person was. Nobodies are soulless and have no emotions, even if they look human. They only exist to wreak havoc and do something with the bodies." Kairi said.
"What exactly happened to Naruto on the bridge when Sasuke turned into a light and entered Naruto?" Haku asked.
"What he did was a very advanced form of magic known as drive. Drive is a new form that happens between two or three people. The host will become extremely powerful for a certain amount of time and is capable of things the host normally can't do. It will also combine some of the traits between the host and other. But as the form grows in power, the things that the form can do eventually become things the host can do. Only four forms are known. They are Valor, Wisdom, Master, and Final forms. The form Naruto had is the valor form. It is a form that can only do physical damage to heartless and nobodies and grows more powerful the more hits that are landed on opponents. Because of its requirements to grow, it needs a lot of hits. It allows the host to wield two keyblades, but it doesn't transfer that ability to the host. It gave me higher jumping abilities, which sounds lame but is really useful." Sora said.
"How long have you been fighting heartless?" Naruto asked.
"I have been fighting them ever since I found out about them. That was around two years ago. Riku and Kairi started fighting heartless about half a year ago." Sora answered. "Are there any more questions?"
"One more question, how do I unlock other forms?" Naruto asked.
"It just happens." Sora said.
A silence stretched for about thirty seconds, and then Kakashi spoke. "What happens now?"
"We still have to think about that" Riku stated then motioned for a huddle with his friends. "We never thought that we would encounter a situation like this, so we have little clue on what to do."
"We could ask if Naruto wants to fight against the heartless. There is a good chance he will accept as he seems to have both a grudge against Maleficent and a strong sense of justice." Kairi thought.
"If he accepts, we will also have to extend the invitation to his teammate Sasuke. Without him, Naruto will not be able to use the Valor form." Sora interjected.
"There is also the matter of training him to put up a good fight against the Heartless. We can't train him, and the king Mickey is busy governing." Riku stated.
"What about Leon and his friends? They helped Sora when he started and me also." Kairi said.
"Transporting him isn't a problem; we can always have one of us drive them in on of our spare gummies." Sora said.
"Here's a plan. How about we ask his permission if he wants to fight with us, we then go to the king to ask his position on this if Naruto accepts. If Mickey approves of it, we go to Leon and ask if he will train him and Sasuke. We then wing it from there." Riku said.
"One problem," Kakashi suddenly yelled over to the group. "In order to have any shinobi from the leaf village out of there, they must either be on a mission, or have permission from the Hokage."
"How did he now what we were talking about?" Kairi asked.
"I am an elite ninja. That means that I have honed most of my body to be an information-gathering, human-killing, loyal machine. In order to gain information, I have sometimes had to listen through a wall to get it. Your conversation was too easy for me to listen in on."
"Okay, so you're saying we need the Hokage's and Naruto's permission before we can even think of adding him to our ranks?" Riku said. Kakashi nodded. "It is a small change to our plan to ask another person. Plan agreed on guys?" He got nods from Sora and Kairi.
Sora then walked towards Naruto and asked him right out. "You want to be a keyblade master and help us kick heartless but?"
Naruto went into thought for this proposition. The downs were that this group didn't reveal everything they know, no clue if they were telling the truth (except for a gut feeling that said they were being truthful), and unpredictable situations. Ups were payback against Maleficent, probable training, recognition; get to see the 'other worlds', and just the overall image of kicking ass. But he still has doubts.
"You don't have to make the decision now, so you have some time to do things before you choose. And there is the chance that you won't be able to leave." Riku said. He then added, "But if you are willing and able to leave, you will get some very effective training."
Sasuke then started to key into the conversation at the words 'very effective training'. 'Training' meant getting stronger. 'Effective' meant that it would either be fast, have a huge increase in strength since before the training, or both. 'Very' meant that it was even better than 'effective training'. So in his mind it translated to power that will help him kill Itachi (No clue if that is spelled right). He became jealous that the worst student that the academy had was getting the chance to get the power he needed. Then he thought back to the Valor form at the bridge. He came up with what he thought would be the only way to get a chance at the training. "Won't that idiot need me for training the Valor form? He can't do it with out me, right?"
Kairi sighed then spoke. "We were going to open that offer to you if Naruto accepted, but now we know your answer. So you will be allowed to go only if Naruto accepts our deal and it is okay by our leader and your leader. And he can always train to do it as long as you are around and willing."
Zabuza, who was no longer interested, told Haku to hurry. He wanted to leave the, what he called, Weirdness Convention. Haku stopped to look at the room once more before leaving. He knew that they seemed unimportant in the matter, but he just wanted to be important in this war between the keyblades and darkness.
"Listen up team," Kakashi said, "For the remainder of the time for the bridge completion you shall have duties you must stick to unless I say otherwise. Sakura, you and I will be switching guarding of Tazuna. Sasuke, you are to train with Naruto in the drive form. Naruto, I want you to train with your keyblade and the drive form. In order to train you with the keyblade, I want one hundred swings to the left, one hundred to the right, two hundred down, and seventy-five upward. After that, you will practice the drive with Sasuke. And you three," Kakashi then points to Sora, Riku, and Kairi, "I would be inclined to help get the acceptance for your deal if you help Naruto and Sasuke master the matter of drive."
Next chapter is the training for drive and the trip back probably. But I give no guarantees.
