"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron." ~Dwight D. Eisenhower, speech, American Society of Newspaper Editors, 16 April 1953.
AN: I'm using Sasuke's retrieval fights in the manga for Chouji's, Kiba's, Neji's, and Shikamaru's fight since they're pretty much fighting the same people, if you want to rewrite this chapter on how you think it should be written, then rewrite it and e-mail me the result and I'll repost the chapter and give credit to whoever's rewrite better since I suck at writing fight scenes.
CHAPTER 7: Rock & Sound Pt 3
~Team 8, West Wall~
Kurenai casts a genjutsu, confusing the enemy as she throws some kunai at them, killing a few.
Kiba and Akamaru do a piercing fang, making both of them into little tornados heading towards their opponents, killing some by shooting them into a destroyed building that had metal skewers poking out of them.
Shino sends his bugs towards the enemies, draining them of their chakra, killing them.
Hinata Jyuukened the enemies who got to close to her.
All of a sudden someone slams into Kurenai, flinging both her and her assailant down the street.
"Kurenai-sensei!" Kiba yells out as Kiba, Shino and Hinata look in her direction worried.
A dark chuckle reached Kiba's ears as he, Shino and Hinata look towards their right.
Two Oto-nins are standing on a rooftop, looking down at Team 8.
The male Oto-nin looked to be in his early to mid teens and had bluish-gray neck length hair, with long bangs covering his right eye with a small piece of hair over his left eye, and his eyes are black, around his eyes he has brown eyeliner around his eyes and was wearing turquoise lipstick.
He wore a long brown tunic with long black wrist bands, black shorts and a purple rope belt tied around his waist, and had something on his back but wasn't entirely visible.
The female Oto-nin also looked to be in her mid teens, had red eyes and red hair that is short, spiky and unkept on the right and the left side was straight and combed.
She is wearing a lavender uniform that was zipped to her belly button leaving the bottom half of her top open, black shorts, black thigh high stocking with ninja shoes and brown glasses.
The female Oto-nin runs down the street, opposite of where Kurenai was.
Hinata follows her as Kiba, Shino and the unknown Oto-nin have a stand off.
The male teen lands between Shino and Kiba startling them when they realize that he had squiggle lines and dots growing on his face.
The teen grins and says, "Bring it on trash!"
~Hinata Hyuuga vs. Karin~
Chasing after the female Oto-nin, Hinata thinks to herself, I won't fail, I will defend my home!
Hinata stops when she sees the Kunoichi stops, jumps down from the roof, and faces Hinata.
The female kunoichi looks at Hinata and says, "You can't beat me."
Hinata narrows her eyes, getting into the Gentle Fist stance and says without stuttering, "Yes, I will."
The female kunoichi smirks and says, "My name is Karin from Taka and I will defeat you."
Hinata just says, "Then I Hinata Hyuuga of the Hyuuga clan will take you out."
Surprisingly Karin looks worried but gets into a fighting stance anyway.
~Kurenai Yuhi vs. Daiki Aomori~
Kurenai after getting blind-sided by the enemy who introduced himself as Daiki Aomori.
He's in the bingo books, Kurenai thinks to herself.
"Your Genjutsu is useless against me, Konoha's Genjutsu mistress." Daiki says to Kurenai.
Damn, Kurenai thinks to herself.
~Kiba Inuzuka & Shino Aburame vs. Sakon & Ukon~
Shino and Kiba run around Sakon throwing punches or putting bugs on him to suck his chakra.
"Don't underestimate our comrades!" Kiba yells as Sakon after he made a fun of his friends.
Sakon smirks and something nails Kiba, making him go flying down the block and then has to jump away when Shino launches some kunai at him.
Kiba and Akamaru get up from the force of the blow. Kiba then whispers into Akamaru's ear, "Listen up Akamaru, we'll attack him Gatsuuga as Shino distracts him."
Sakon notices that Kiba and his little dog are charging in his direction as they both start to spin as Kiba yells, "Gatsuuga! (1)"
As Sakon is focusing on Kiba and Akamaru, he doesn't see Shino coming up behind him with his fist raised.
As Kiba and Akamaru hit Sakon, a cloud of dust covers everyone, and when the dust clears, the sight shocks both Kiba and Shino.
Instead of one person, there are two, the other person was sticking out of Sakon's back and holding onto Shino's fist.
Sakon smirks and says, "Don't underestimate us trash!"
Kiba is shocked as he tries to kick Sakon's stomach, only to be stopped by a foot that comes out of Sakon's stomach, blocking Kiba's kick.
The other person, still in Sakon's back looks into Shino's face and says, "Two on Two is just perfect, eh, Sakon?"
Sakon still smirking says, "Of course Ukon."
Sakon and Ukon start attacking Shino and Kiba with, "Ta-Ren-Ken! (2)"
~Hinata Hyuuga vs. Karin~
"Hakke Sanjuni Sho! (3)" Hinata yells out, striking Karin who stumbles from the hits.
Karin winces but still manages to stand and goes to charge forward but gets no further as Hinata cuts her head off using, Shugohakke Rokujuyon Sho (4).
~Kurenai Yuhi vs. Daiki Aomori~
Kurenai and Daiki are both covered in cuts, though Daiki has a burn mark on his face from not dodging a fire jutsu fast enough.
"How's your face?" Kurenai asks, smiling a little at her handy work.
Daiki is not amused at Kurenai's comment and narrows his eyes.
Daiki launches his kunai at Kurenai but she dodges them as she jumps back.
Unfortunately Kurenai doesn't see a shadow shuriken coming towards her head, but she does feel someone tug her out of the way.
Looking over her right shoulder, Kurenai spots one of the warlords, Hajime Takigawa.
"Attacking a lady isn't a very gentlemen like thing to do," Hajime says with narrowed eyes.
Daiki looks unsure of himself now, before he could take on the Genjutsu mistress, but he knows he outclassed by far now that he's facing one of the warlords.
Daiki was so screwed.
And it showed when Hajime moved so fast Daiki couldn't defend himself and died from a kunai in every major organ in his body and lays slumped against a wall.
"Thank you," Kurenai says to Hajime who turns and says, "It's no problem... though we still have a problem."
Kurenai looks confused but then Hajime points behind her, turning around Kurenai sees about 25 Oto/Iwa-nins coming there way.
"Shall we?" Kurenai asks, taking out a kunai.
"We shall," Hajime says as they both charge at the oncoming enemies.
~Kiba Inuzuka & Shino Aburame vs. Sakon & Ukon~
After flinging Akamaru away, Sakon talks about the Ta-Ren-Ken to Shino and Kiba, "A kick that is three times as powerful hurts pretty bad, huh? Let's see what's next..."
Sakon is cut off by his brother Ukon who covers his mouth and says, "We don't have much time left, Sakon."
Ukon then starts to separate himself from Sakon, as his skin started to turn a shade of red, his hair got longer and a horn appeared on the right side of his head, as an arm and a leg came out of Sakon's body as he says, "Kill quickly, activate 'level 2'!"
Sakon's skin also turns red but his horn appeared on the left side of his forehead as he says, "Yeah, yeah, you're too hasty brother."
Shino and Kiba are winded from the punches.
Kiba looks at the horns then mutters to Akamaru and Shino, "Those horns aren't just for show."
Shino silently agrees.
Sakon glances at his brother who is at his right and asks, "So how do you want them cooked brother?"
Ukon just says, "In pieces."
Akamaru barks at Kiba who looks worried as he says "You're telling me to use that?"
Akamaru barks at Kiba again and tugs on his coat, as Shino makes sure that Sakon and Ukon are far enough away.
"No Akamaru! It's too risky to use it without any help." Kiba tells Akamaru who isn't happy at what Kiba said and bites his hand.
Sakon and Ukon then charge in their direction as Akamaru growls at them as they get closer.
Kiba and Akamaru get in front of Shino as Kiba says, "Garouga! (5)"
Kiba and Akamaru clash with the twins, Akamaru manages to spin in the air and pees on the twins at the same time.
That made the twins angry as they yell, "What the... dog piss!"
Kiba then jumps in the air near Akamaru as he thinks to himself, It's all set.
Akamaru jumps onto Kiba's back as he makes hand signs for the Inuzuka-style man-beast morph, "Soutourou! (6)"
Sakon and Ukon tense up not knowing what was going to happen.
A cloud of smoke envelops Kiba and Akamaru, then the smoke clears to reveal a two giant wolves growling at the twins, luckily for Shino he jumped out of the way and hides himself, waiting for the right time to strike while secretly sending out chakra eating bugs at the twins.
The twins scoff and say, "hehe, all of this tension for a some drooling dogs."
As the twins were talking, Kiba and Akamaru twirl in a tornado like fashion towards the twins.
The twins try to jump out of the way but don't make it out of the way as one of their legs gets torn up and then they slip in a pile of drool either Kiba or Akamaru made earlier.
Ukon then yells at Sakon, "What are you doing Sakon! 3 O'clock!"
But they don't move fast enough as Kiba and Akamaru come crashing into them, throwing them into a concrete wall, and creating a huge dust cloud.
Kiba and Akamaru stand half way down the torn up street as Sakon and Ukon lay under the rubble of the concrete wall.
Kiba then says, "Heh, how was that? Garouga is a move where we spin so fast that we can't even keep track of our vision, it's a super spin, even if it doesn't hit, it's shock waves slice the enemy, if you get nailed head on, you're going to be in pieces."
Kiba, Akamaru and Shino are shocked; when out of the dust cloud were Sakon and Ukon... Separated and starting to stand up.
As Sakon stand up he says, "Nah, we were just thinking about splitting up anyway."
Kiba still shocked thinks to himself, What! They multiplied!
Ukon gets up saying, "True, if we got nailed as one, it would've been quite bad, however, the real fighting begins now."
Kiba and Akamaru start shaking, not because they were scared, it was because they were starting to get exhausted from the fight.
Shino appears to the right of Kiba.
Kiba and Akamaru charge at Sakon as Shino heads towards Ukon.
Sakon goes to kick Kiba, but Akamaru gets in his way and is thrown to the ground.
Kiba gets angry, but before he could do anything, Sakon kicked him in the chest knocking him to the ground, right next to Akamaru.
Just as Sakon is about to land the finishing blow, Kiba smells wood and make up.
Who the hell is that? Kiba thinks.
All of a sudden something cloaked in black steps between Sakon and Kiba.
~Kiba Inuzuka, Shino Aburame & Kankuro vs. Sakon & Ukon~
Shino all of a sudden appears once again at my side, and Ukon also comes over and stops at his brother's side.
Though Ukon has to jump back when Kankuro's puppet he stabbed thrusts his arm forward and releasing a needle filled with something.
Ukon sighs and says, "A doll, huh?"
Kankuro ignores Ukon and looks at Kiba saying, "You got your ass handed to you by a make up wearing freak."
Kiba looks confused as he says, "You shouldn't be talking about yourself like that."
Kankuro twitches and Ukon while the Kankuro was distracted charged.
Kiba saw Ukon coming and yells out, "Watch out!"
When Ukon grabs Kankuro by the face he is surprised to find out that he was actually a puppet.
The puppet Kankuro tears Ukon apart, killing him.
Sakon, distracted by feeling his brother die, is killed when Shino sends his bug at him, draining him of chakra then stabs him in the heart with a kunai.
Shino looks up from his fallen enemy to see Kankuro and Kiba looking at him as Kankuro says, "Damn, remind me not to piss you off in the future."
Hearing people coming, Kiba says to Kankuro and Shino, "We got some more enemies to take care of."
Kankuro readies his puppets as Shino's bugs start swarming around him as the enemy comes around the corner and to the trio in the middle of the street.
~Training Ground 44, Forest of Death, South of Tower~
~ Sun vs. Gen Kobayashi~
Akihiko just as he's entering the forest has to duck when a razor bladed flower shuriken nearly takes his head off.
Whipping around and looking up into the trees, Akihiko sees a girl his height and age standing on a branch 10 feet into the air.
"Please surrender, I don't want to fight." The girl says with a sad look on her face.
Akihiko instead of answering runs up the tree and appears in front of the girl and throws a kick.
The kick never connects as the girl does a back flip and lands on another branch 2 branches away.
"You're good Akikiko-kun," The girl says, confusing Akihiko since he never told her his name.
Eyes narrowed Akihiko asks, "How do you know my name?"
The girl gives a sad smile and says, "I found Orochimaru's records on you."
Before anything else can be done, someone comes up from behind the girl and stabs her through the stomach, making her gasp and blood trickle down her chin.
The person behind her kicks her off his sword making her crash into the ground, but the guy won't be able to do anything else since Akihiko moved so fast and took off his head with a very powerful kick.
Akihiko then jumps to the ground and runs over to the girl and picks her up and takes off towards the hospital as the girl weakly says, "Why... Why help me?"
Akihiko looks at her, dodging enemies and allies alike and says, "Because you're like me, someone who Orochimaru used and experimented on."
The girl is shocked, and then passes out from blood loss just as Akihiko gets to the hospital.
~Training Ground 44 a.k.a. Forest of Death, North of Tower~
~Yamato & Shibi Aburame vs. Oto & Iwa~
"Mokuton: Wooden Spears!" Yamato yells and then launches 4-foot long wooden spears, impaling the enemy and those who dodged were then swarmed by chakra eating bugs.
"They should not fight with us on our turf," Yamato says to Shibi, making tree roots attack the Oto/Iwa nins.
Shibi makes a Hn sound and says, "I agree, this will prove to be their downfall."
The only thing left to hear is the sounds of battle and the anguished cries of the enemy who were dying.
~Zabuza Momochi vs. Sugeitsu~
Running along the river, Sugeitsu runs into some mist which is out of place in Konoha.
This is a Kiri jutsu, I thought they weren't coming, Sugeitsu thinks to himself.
Sugeitsu has to duck when a huge sword comes flying out of the mist and into a tree next to his head.
"Well, well, what do we have here? Little Sugeitsu Hozuki, you grew." A deep voice resonates throughout the mist, making it difficult to pinpoint the voices origin.
"Zabuza Momochi stop hiding and face me!" Sugeitsu snaps at the mist as Zabuza chuckles.
The mist recedes to reveal the mist ninja Zabuza Momochi.
Sugeitsu notices that Zabuza's headband doesn't have a scratch through it.
"Seems the Mizukage let you come back." Sugeitsu says.
Zabuza grabs hold of his sword and says, "The NEW Mizukage was quite understanding."
Sugeitsu's eyebrows furrow and attacks as he thinks, New Mizukage?
~Fang Dong & Iwao Akasuna vs. Goro Tanaka & Juro Yoshida~
"This is fun! Eh, Fang?" Iwao says happily taking out enemies' left and right as Fang rolls his eyes before kicking away an Iwa-nin.
Fang back flips away from an enemy who tried to take him out.
A man in his mid 30s stands between Fang and Iwao who was dealing with a man with should length blonde hair.
The man in front of Fang has pink hair, which made Fang blink, as he's never met a man with that color hair before.
~Fang Dong vs. Juro Yoshida~
"Nice hair." Fang says bluntly but quietly.
The pink haired guy twitches as someone else has made fun of his hair today.
"You'll pay for that foreigner!" the man spits out, lunging at Fang.
~Iwao Akasuna vs. Goro Tanaka~
"Stop hiding and face me!" Goro yells, pissed off at his elusive foe.
A large scorpion blocks a shot with its tail, the hit itself barely left a scratch.
"When I find you, I'll kill you! I'll kill your Grandmother! Your parents! Your wife! Your child! -"
Goro's rant is cut off when a massive amount of killing intent fills the area, effectively killing a few by the intent alone.
Iwao who was hiding around the area walks out of a shadowed doorway with an extremely pissed off expression on his face, one that promised pain and death.
Goro now realizes that he is doomed and no amount of begging and pleading will get him out of it. Iwao just silently takes out a scroll from his pants pocket, still keeping his eyes on Goro, who's frozen in fear.
Iwao opens the scroll and smears a little of his blood on a seal that is on the scroll.
A large cloud of smoke covers the area blocking Iwao and Goro from view. When a gust of wind goes by, what Goro and some invading Nin see are hundreds of puppets of various shapes, sizes and appearance.
The last thing Goro and the nins think are, I'm screwed.
Standing over the dead boy of Goro and the nins, Iwao just shakes his head and puts away the puppets back into the scroll and went off to find Fang.
Two minutes later Iwao finds Fang and his pink haired enemy. Iwao blinks at the bloody mess that was Fang's enemy.
"Remind me not to spar against you full on in the future." Iwao says looking between Fang and the pink haired guy.
Fang just smirks in response before jumping back into the fight.
~Zabuza Momochi vs. Sugeitsu~
Panting Sugeitsu stares across the river where Zabuza was at with a cut on his face going from left side of chin to his cheekbone, he was breathing a little hard as well.
"You're good, but not that good." Zabuza says mockingly as mist refills the area.
Sugeitsu swears internally as he dodges Zabuza's large sword by going behind the tree as the sword hits the tree. Thinking he's safe Sugeitsu looks around the tree, not noticing someone coming up behind him until the person stabs him in the neck, making him bleed out quickly.
Looking down at Sugeitsu's body, Zabuza thinks to himself, so much potential, too bad he chose to side with the enemy.
Sensing some more enemies in the mist he grabs his sword and disappears into the mist.
~Third Training Ground~
~Ryuu Hisoka vs. Sasuke Uchiha~
Charging through enemies like knife through butter, Ryuu was annoyed but his face didn't show it, all of a sudden a fireball engulfs him but he just pops in a poof of smoke.
A pale skinned teen with hair that looks like a ducks ass lands in the clearing, pausing slightly to look at the three training posts.
Sasuke then leaps to the side as a windmill shuriken slams into the ground where he was standing moments before, landing in a crouch a couple feet away, Sasuke looks up to the trees and sees a teen with black spiky hair and amber eyes stood there blankly looking at him.
"Who are you?" Sasuke demands as the teen just looks at him and doesn't say anything, angering the Uchiha.
Sasuke launches himself at Ryuu but Ryuu dodges him and lands on top of the training posts.
Sasuke whirls around with his sword out and Sharigan eyes blazing in fury at being ignored then charges again yelling, "No one denies an Uchiha anything! I'll kill you!"
Ryuu just looks on indifferently at what the Uchiha's doing.
~Outside ANBU Head Quarters~
~Ibiki Morino & Anko Mitarashi vs. Oto & Iwa~
"This is fun Ibiki!" Anko joyfully exclaims as she leaps into the fray, making Ibiki sweat drop.
Ibiki, and Anko continue to take out Oto and Iwa Nin.
The ANBU near by were also taking out any enemy that got too close for their liking and simultaneously watching Anko have waaay too much fun.
Down in the underground caverns Tristan silently watches Danzo's root ANBU run around.
Walking silently in the shadows Tristan pokes around the rooms as he passes by and he doesn't like what he sees.
In most of the rooms he looks into are filled with dead or dying children and teenagers with various stages of injures.
Upon entering a room filled with scrolls, Tristan looks at each scroll carefully and notices a lot of techniques that Ren and the others would benefit from.
Tristan works quickly sealing everything that was in the room before exiting and just as he's about to exit a root ninja enters the room.
Both Tristan and the root ninja freeze in place. Tristan before the root ninja could flinch flings a kunai, which lands in the other ninjas heart, killing him.
Dragging the root ninjas body in the room then exits the room disguised as the root ninja. Walking through the halls Tristan is disgusted on how this man has managed to keep what he was doing quiet for so long.
Tristan while wandering around taking out any root ninja he came across comes across a room that looks to be a record room.
Poking around he notices the names of Ren Hanajima, Akihiko Houshakuji, Mitsuko Kasugazaki, Takeshi Momochi, Ayame Takahashi, Ryuu Hisoka, Naruto Uzumaki and Kushina Uzumaki.
Tristan thinks that Danzo has or had something to do with the Vongola and Kushina's disappearance so he takes those documents and seals them away before he continues to snoop around to see if he could find anything else on Danzo.
~Kakashi Hakate & Sai vs. Oto & Iwa~
A high-pitched female screech alerts Kakashi and Sai that their female teammate is absolutely useless.
"Sensei?" Sai questions as he takes out an Oto-nin who got too close to the fleeing civilians.
Kakashi sighs in frustration at Sakura who is now out like a light and says, "Leave her with the civilians."
Sai nods and creates an Ink clone, which takes Sakura to the civilians and left there to protect them as a last line of defense.
