A/N: Im sorry that this chapter is shorter than the first. Im experiencing writers block on this particular fic but hopefully next time I'll have roughly 3-4k words if all goes according to plan.
"Don't you know never to turn your back on an opponent, Uchiha?" Yugito taunted the last Uchiha as she finished her hand seals. "Raiton: Shichū Shibari" She called, slamming her hands onto the ground.
Naruto watched on in curiosity as four pillars of earth shot up from the ground surrounding Sasuke before a bolt of lightning shot from each, wrapping around each of his limbs and pulling him off the ground and suspending him between them in mid-air in a spread eagle position.
Despite his best efforts, Sasuke found himself unable to move as the strange jutsu left him immobile, causing him to roar in anger. "Release me right this second!"
The Nibi Jinchuriki pretended to think about it for a second before sticking her tongue out. "Not a chance. I don't take orders from idiots like you. Now, if you were to ask me politely to let you down; I might be a bit more willing."
Her comments only served to further enrage the last Uchiha who continued yell and threaten Yugito to let him down. Sakura meanwhile stood there with her mouth open wide, staring at her beloved Sasuke. 'How did she do that?' The pinkette wondered.
'She must have cheated! There is no way she is a match for Sasuke-kun!' Her inner shouted.
'I don't think she did. I've read about that move before. It's a favourite among Kumo ninja.' Sakura responded rationally. 'Besides, since Sasuke-kun lost, he has to go on a date with me!'
Naruto was busy laughing like crazy at the still cursing Uchiha as Yugito began making more hand seals for a finishing attack to make sure Sasuke knew exactly who the winner was. "Raiton!" She intoned before Kirabi appeared and grabbed her hands.
"Easy, Nii. You've won, don't ya see?" He rapped, trying to prevent his former pupil from doing something that would make life harder for her in Konoha.
"K-Kirabi-Sensei!" Yugito stuttered, bowing respectfully to the elder Jinchuriki.
Nodding to Yugito, Kirabi released her and turned his attention to Naruto. "So you're Mister Nine! Great to meet you, the pleasure is mine." He continued his rap, holding out a fist to Naruto who had stopped laughing and grinned at his fellow Jinchuriki before doing as Yugito mentally instructed him and bumped Kirabi's fist with his own.
"Mister Eight, meeting you here like this just has to be fate." Naruto replied, trying out this rap thing for himself.
Yugito groaned loudly and smacked Naruto on the back of the head. "If I hear one more rap from either of you, I will personally ensure that you will never mate!" She threatened, using Nibi's chakra to turn her nails into claws.
Naruto wisely shut his mouth while Kirabi just grinned. "Go ahead and try, Two. It's obvious I'm more than a match for you."
"Well, it was nice knowing you, Kirabi-san." Naruto said as Yugito shrieked and charged after her former sensei who was running away, laughing the whole time. "So, Teme, since you lost that fight you're gonna make good on your deal and take Sakura-chan out for that date, right?"
"Forget it, Dobe! She cheated and then our fight was interrupted so it didn't count." Sasuke replied, glaring at Naruto.
Sakura at Sasuke's statement looked disappointed for a second before anger replaced it and she rounded on Naruto. "Grrr, Naruto!" She balled her hands into fists and proceeded to swing at Naruto. "This is your girlfriend's fault! "
The Kyuubi Jinchuriki sighed deeply as he dodged back and forth, trying to stay out of the way of Sakura's fists. "Sakura-chan, the teme is just being a sore loser. Yugito-chan won against him fair and square." He attempted to reason with the pink haired banshee.
"SHUT UP!" Sakura screamed as her fist connected with her former friend's face, knocking him backwards and out cold. She then huffed and stalked off to find her precious Sasuke-kun who had walked off during her assault on Naruto.
At the Hokage tower, both Kakashi and Hiruzen winced as they watched Sakura KO'd Konoha's number one hyperactive knucklehead ninja. "That looked painful." Kakashi said, tearing his gaze away from the Hokage's crystal ball. "I'd better go make sure Naruto is ok. Kami only knows how long Kirabi-san is going to lead Yugito-chan on a wild goose chase through the village." The cycloptic Jonin shuddered slightly at the thought of the rapping jinchuriki who disturbed him nearly as much as Maito Gai before vanishing in a puff of smoke.
Taking a puff on his pipe, Sarutobi sighed. "Why do I get the feeling that having both Naruto and Yugito on the same team is going to wind up causing more paperwork for me?" The elderly Hokage asked of no one.
Awakening in his mindscape, Naruto heard a sound he had become all too familiar with over the years since he had figured out about the Kyūbi. It was the sound of the fox laughing, most likely at his being knocked out by Sakura. "Shut it, Furball!" The blonde snapped as he headed towards the place he knew the Kyūbi to be.
"Welcome, Kit." Kyūbi greeted, as Naruto approached his cage. "I must say, it was most amusing to see that pink haired howler monkey knock you out. It was also a little disappointing. Even after all the training I've given you over these years, you lost to a fangirl!"
Naruto snorted at Kyūbi's comment. "She's a teammate, Furball. I didn't want to attack her."
This time it was Kyūbi's turn to snort. "That little fact didn't seem to prevent her from assaulting you, and nor would it stop the Uchiha from trying to fry you like he did to your little girlfriend."
"Yugito isn't my girlfriend!" Naruto snapped, trying to restrain himself from punching the annoying furball right on the nose. "She's just my best friend!"
Kyūbi sighed deeply. "Whatever you say, Kit. That aside, there are things I need to discuss with you."
This piqued Naruto's interest. Usually when the Kyūbi wanted to discuss something with him, it was something important and usually wound up making his life within the village a bit easier. "What is it this time, Kyū?"
"The time has come, Kit, for you to awaken your kekkei genkai which has lain dormant within you for your twelve years of life. It is known as the Elemental Star. This bloodline formerly belonged to the Uzumaki clan before I wiped them from the face of the planet in my rampage that night twelve years ago." The Nine Tails explained to his host.
"So it belonged to my clan?" The blonde clarified. "It sounds really cool, but what exactly does this kekkei genkai do?"
Noting that his jailor was fading from his mindscape, indicating that he was waking up, the Kyūbi merely gave a deep chuckle. "That, Kit, will have to wait until you return. For now, it is time for you to awaken."
That said, Naruto faded from his mindscape and awoke to find Kakashi, Yugito, and Kirabi standing over him looking concerned. "Are you alright, Naru-kun?" Yugito asked, concerned for her friend.
"Seems you took quite a hit, Nine. You still feelin' fine?" Kirabi rapped, much to Yugito's and Kakashi's annoyance.
"Yeah, I'll be fine. Sakura-chan just doesn't like hearing the truth about the Teme." Naruto explained, rubbing his head where she had assaulted him.
"I'll be sure to have a talk with her about attacking a teammate outside of our sparring sessions." Kakashi spoke, not at all pleased with the pink haired Kunoichi.
Frowning, Yugito helped her friend to his feet. "She's just mad her 'precious Sasuke-kun' lost to me, but she'll get over it when the teme takes her on that date he promised."
Turning his attention to Kirabi, Naruto grinned and extended his hand. "Hey there. Yugito told me a lot about you, Kirabi-sempai. You're host to the eight tails, right?" His eyes gleamed with the prospect of finding another possible friend and jinchuriki as well.
Returning Naruto's grin, Kirabi grasped Naruto's hand and gave it a firm shake. "Yep, that's me. It's nice to meet you too, Nine. You make sure to take care of Yugi-chan when she's here, alright?"
Grinning, Naruto gave Kirabi a nice guy pose. "You can count on me! Nobody is gonna hurt Yugi-chan while I'm around!"
The Kumo Jonin nodded. "Good. Now that that's been taken care of, I'm heading back to Kumo." He said before bumping fists with both Naruto and Yugito and vanishing via shunshin.
Once he had vanished, Kakashi sighed in relief. "Right, now that he's gone, you two go home and meet me at training ground seven tomorrow at eight AM. Also, don't eat breakfast or you'll just throw it up." He said with an eye smile before poofing away.
"So you expect us to show up first thing in the morning for some kind of test which could include Kami knows what without breakfast?" Yugito questioned.
Giving the former Kumo-nin an eye-smile. "Thats right." He said before poofing away.
Naruto sighed. "Why do we have to have the psycho sensei?"
"One thing you're gonna learn Naru-kun is that most ninja by the time they reach jounin develop some sort of quirk or so in order to help them cope with the things we do as ninja." Yugito said, wrapping her arm around Naruto. "It's part of the reason why Kirabi-sensei is how he is."
Shrugging, Naruto and Yugito spent the remainder of the day running around Konoha until it was time for them to turn in. After a slight debate, Naruto wound up taking the couch while he gave the bed to Yugito.
Later that night, Naruto was awakened by a very high pitched scream. Yugito it seemed had a nightmare. It had been a long time since she had slept alone due to recurring nightmares about either the death of her parents or various things that had happened to her during her life in Kumo. From the age of five up, she had always either slept with Samui or Kirabi since they kept said nightmares away. Once Naruto had learned this, he climbed into bed with his friend, albeit a bit reluctantly and quickly fell asleep for the remainder of the night.
