-A\N- I have forgotten the last time we met, it has been a long time, but I feel it is time I continue what I started all those months ago. So here it is, Chapter three Of Summoning the fairies.
Summoning the Fairies.
Chapter Three, Invasion, there's nothing 'Happy' about it.
"Second match, Kunkuro Forfeits to Shino, Shino's victory, next up, Nara Shikamaru VS Temari." Called the announcer to the audience. Temari Glided down easily thanks to her fan and got to the waiting area. "Hey, the other one, Get down here." The announcer called up. Shikamaru wasn't as lucky as Temari, "What? My turn already? Why are you guys getting so excited? Why did that other guy have to forfeit to Shino? I'm supposed to be last. This is troublesome." "Nara Shikamaru, It's you" called the announcer again. 'Should I just copy the other guy and give up?' However before Shikamaru could put this plan into motion, Naruto Came and slapped him hard on the back. "All right, Stop complaining and go get her. Go show her which is the best village." Naruto had hit Shikamaru a bit too hard however as he fell over the banister and into the arena. Temari just looked at the man who was to be her opponent. "Easy win" she muttered as Shikamaru continued to lie on his back, showing no motivation to get up. 'Damn Naruto'
Everyone watching the arena was getting tired of waiting and started to throw their rubbish at Shikamaru. He just stared up with indifference as empty cans flew past him till he was surrounded by litter. "They wanted a Sasuke match and now they have a no name match. So now they are saying get out of here." Muttered Shikamaru as he lay there. "If you won't attack I will." Shouted Temari charging and completely ignoring the Announcers cries of "We haven't started yet." Shikamaru sighed as he took out two kunai and when Temari smashed her fan onto the ground where Shikamaru was lying, she found him standing on the wall having made footholds with the two kunai. "I don't care if I can't become a Chunnin… But a man can't lose to a woman. I guess I'd Fight."
Temari angered by his words unleashed a wind slash from her fan covering the area in a cloud of dust. When the dust cleared however all you saw was the two kunai. 'This guy is quick at running away' thought Temari as she searched the area for any sign of the hidden Konoha Genin. Unknown to her Shikamaru was hiding behind a tree thinking that a man can't really hit a woman. 'But nor do I want to get hit' Meanwhile Temari was planning her stragedy, 'This guy uses shadows, so he must be trying to lure me into the trees where there are plenty of shadows… But that won't happen!' 'Why am I the only one who has to fight a woman?' thought Shikamaru once more, 'so troublesome.'
Temari released a huge wave of wind that covered the entire arena and the audience, and out from the dust cloud created darted a shadow heading straight for Temari. Temari back flipped out of the way until she could go back no more, but lucky for her, the shadow had reached its max range and stopped a few centimeters from where she stood. Marking the place with her fan, she remarked, "I see…Kage Mane No Jutsu, I figured it out. There is a limit to how far you can stretch, shrink and transform your shadow. You can only stretch it as much as its surface area." Remarked Temari to a panting Shadow User. "Isn't that Right?" "Correct. Answered Shikamaru, bringing his hands together in a strange hand seal that Temari was unfamiliar with. After a while he moved his hands apart confusing Temari further as nothing had happened. Unknown to her, Shikamaru had just finished his stragedy.
Temari released a Wind slash at Shikamaru who started running for the trees. The wind continued for ages as Shikamaru seemed to have no intention of leaving his hiding place. Eventually A single Kunai flew out from the wind making Temari leap to the side, Block the next kunai with her fang and spot Shikamaru's shadow heading for her Temari remained unfazed believing the shadow would be unable to go past her line. However she suddenly noticed it wasn't stopping and leapt backwards, the shadow a few millimeters from her foot. "So you were waiting for the sun to set and increase the length of your shadow." Commented Temari. Glad she has prevented him from going further, she smiled.
"Temari, above you" shouted Kunkuro, looking up; Temari saw Makeshift Parachute made from a kunai, Headband and Shikamaru's shirt, which increased the range of Shikamaru's Shadow. As Temari Jumped Back, Shikamaru shouted, "I'm not letting you get away" After Shikamaru's Shadow could go no further, it retreated, and Temari sent a released a wind slash as she turned to look at Shikamaru. "So you've dodged this trick too, eh?" Shikamaru commented. Temari placed her fan in front of her and started to make the seals for a replication. However suddenly she couldn't move. Shikamaru had used the hole Naruto had made when he dug underground to punch Neji as a tunnel to get behind Temari.
"All right, Shadow Imitation finally succeeded" commented Shikamaru, "You Don't see how I got you? I'll show you what's behind you." Shikamaru looked behind him, making Temari do the same thing. "Did you use the shadow inside the tunnel of the holes to…?" "Correct." Answered Shikamaru making them both walk towards Each other. "All right, go get her." Shouted Naruto. "That KageYama never used that spell when fighting Natsu." Answered Happy. "A talking cat" said Shino, not seeming surprised at all. "What, how did you get here? And KageYama? That's my friend Shikamaru" said Naruto. Happy finished the fish he was eating and looked at Shikamaru, "Looks like another Shadow User we fought back in my world. KageYama was also a Shadow Using pineapple. Make sure Shikamaru stays away from flutes that have something to do with death." Replied Happy, to which Naruto responded with a "Whaaaat?'
Meanwhile Shikamaru Raised his and Temari's hands and said, "I lose, I give up" shocking everyone in the arena. "What?" was shouted throughout the arena as an uproar began. "Hahaha. That guy is funny." Commented Happy, "I'm glad I came when Lucy said you were having a tournament. Lucy's spirits come out by themselves all the time so I thought I'd try it as well." "What did you say?" asked Temari hardly believing What Shikamaru said. "I said I give up. This fight is too troublesome. I used up too much Chakra using the shadow Imitation so many times and I can only hold you for another ten seconds. I have thought of 200 things I can do now, but times up so I give up. It's too troublesome to do more, so one match is enough for me." "Winner, Temari" called the announcer.
"Shikamaru, How could you? Why did you give up?" grumbled an angry Naruto when Shikamaru got back up to the contestant stands. "It was a gud match" commented Happy. Shikamaru raised an eye at the talking cat but was too lazy to comment on it. Instead he turned to Naruto and said, "Forget it, it's the past. Let's go get ready to watch the next match." "The next match? Sasuke!" Suddenly Sasuke and Kakashi appeared in the middle of the arena. "Sorry we're late." It didn't take long for everything to be ready for the match after all everyone has been waiting for this match for quite a while. "Begin" said the announcer.
Gaara started to release the sand from his gourd, when suddenly he held his head in his mad, so that his right eye was covered by his right eye and said, "Don't get so mad at me…mom. Back there… Back there… I made you absorb foul Blood… I'm sorry… But… This time… It'll taste better." "Come, If you're not coming, then I'm coming to you." Sasuke started running towards Gaara. Who used his sand as a shield, but Sasuke Spun to Gaara's back, and as Gaara changed the direction of his sand to attack Sasuke, Sasuke moved again, and kicked Gaara into the air, who then used his sand to cushion his fall onto the ground. Once Gaara stood up Sasuke started running in circles around Gaara. Suddenly without warning Sasuke appeared in front of Gaara and kicked him in the head. However, before Gaara could fall onto the ground Sasuke Grabbed him and kneed him in the stomach.
Gaara was panting, with his face cracked from his sand armour. He put his hands together and started to manipulate his sand. Covering himself in a dome. Sasuke ran forward to punch Gaara but stopped just before he reached him. If he hadn't, he would have been impaled by the sand spikes Gaara had created. As Sasuke leapt back the spikes retreated into the dome. Gaara activated his third eye as Sasuke threw three kunai at the sand which had no effect. He then tried to punch the dome but the spikes came out cutting him so he jumped back but the spikes followed him. Jumping around and on the dome had no effect as the sand spikes continued to pursue him.
Sasuke run up the stadium wall and started to form hand seals. His hand then was covered in lightning as Chidori was activated. "So he was a lightning User. Was wondering what magic he uses." Commented Happy to himself as he watched the fight. Wondering why Naruto had been so quiet he looked around and couldn't see Naruto or Shikamaru. "Huh? Where did they go?" Suddenly his eye caught orange in the stands and he saw Naruto and Shikamaru there so he flew over to them. Meanwhile Sasuke Started to run towards Gaara, Breaking the wall as he ran. Sasuke ran up to the dome, dodging the spikes, and thrust Chidori directly into the dome. Gaara screamed "Blood, my blood." Sasuke tried to remove his arm from the Sand dome but couldn't, so he re-activated Chidori and pulled his arm out, revealing a giant arm made of sand coming out as well. After Sasuke got free, the arm retreated back into the dome. The sand then collapsed revealing a wounded Gaara holding his injured shoulder. Meanwhile, all around the stadium people started to fall asleep. Naruto started to see feathers falling in front of him. The last thing he saw before he lost consciousness was a blue flying cat shouting his name flying straight at him.
When he woke up he saw Sakura. "What's wrong Sakura-Chan?" he asked when she screamed something and pushed his head down as a kunai flew past where his head had been. "I'll explain later, just stay down for now." She then moved over to Shikamaru and said, "Shikamaru, You've been awake…" Then a small dog went and bit his leg. Shikamaru suddenly started to wave his legs and arms like crazy screaming making the dog fly up and down with his leg. "You were able to dispel Illusionary Techniques too! Why were you pretending to sleep?" asked Sakura. "Aye" said Happy as he flew by, barely missing a kunai. "And why didn't that Flying cat fall asleep?" asked Sakura upon seeing Happy. "Because I'm a cat" Sakura signed. "I'm not even going to comment on that. Talking dogs, flying talking cats, and now such a crazy reason. This is not my day. The fact that we are under attack makes it even worse." "I don't want to get involved in this" said Shikamaru, bringing them back to the subject at hand. "I'm not doing this, I don't care about Sasuke." As he pulled the dog's cheek. The dog then proceeded to bite his hand. "Owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!" Screamed Shikamaru lifting his hand into the air where a Kunai barely missed it. "Dogs are so stupid" Happy remarked, getting a death glare from the dog.
It was then that Naruto noticed the audience was all asleep and the fighting going on. "What's going on?" he asked. "What you mean" asked happy turning around, then Happy noticed the sleeping audience, the ninja fighting, and the flying kunai. "What's going on?" screamed Happy. "Naruto was asleep so I can understand why he didn't know anything, but you were awake the whole time you crazy cat…Naruto, Behind You!" screamed Sakura as a sound ninja appeared behind Naruto and was about to kill him when Gai came and knocked him through the wall, creating a huge dust cloud and a large gaping hole.
Suddenly Kakashi came as well. "Go after Sasuke, once you find him, stop him. Then await further instructions in a safe area. Go now through that hole." "What happened to Sasuke?" asked Naruto. "I'll tell you as we move. Lets go." Sakura pulled Naruto through the hole. "Hey, kid! If you succeed in this mission, I'll let you touch my pads as a reward…" Shikamaru looked at the dog. "Your pads?" "Yes. Look. It's soft and Bouncy! Actually it's REALLY SOFT AND BOUNCY! Let's just move on" "I want to touch them. Let me touch then." Shouted happy flying after Shikamaru and the dog as they all left.
Later Naruto Happy Sakura and the Dog arrived as Sasuke was being attacked By Gaara. Shikamaru was left behind to deal with a few Sound ninja who were trying to stop them. Gaara was about to land a Final hit on Sasuke when Naruto arrived and Greeted Gaara with a kick in his semi morphed head. "Sand and transformation magic?" commented a shocked Happy as he saw Naruto get a good hit in on Gaara. Gaara flew back but caught hold of a tree and landed on it instead of continuing on towards the ground. Naruto landed on a branch filled with leaves while Happy hovered nearby, and Sakura and the dog, whom Naruto had learnt was called Pakkun, landed by Sasuke to check how he was. "You guys." Muttered Sasuke trying to get up, "Hey Sakura-chan, Sakura-chan. Who the hell is he?" asked a confused Naruto pointing at Gaara. "His appearance has changed but he is that Gaara fellow." Answered Pakkun."
"Hey little girl, I'm not a combat type so don't blame me for not helping." Pakkun commented to Sakura. "Same here" added Happy. "I could tell from your looks" was the only reply Sakura gave. Gaara suddenly jumped to attack, but went right past Naruto and headed for Sasuke, but Sakura jumped in the way. "Sakura-Chan" screamed Naruto and Gaara grabbed Sakura in his giant arm and pushed her onto a tree. He then disconnected his arm and left the hand to bind Sakura to the tree as he turned his attention to Naruto who jumped at him Shouting Damn it.
Gaara easily deflected Naruto's punch and threw him onto a nearby branch. "Damn it. I will Save Sakura-chan, and Protect Sasuke. I have to protect everyone." Gaara started laughing. "So you fight for another that is why you guys are weak. You don't need a reason to fight. Only the winner can feel the value of his existence. Now forget your stupid friends, and fight only for yourself." "That's not true. It is for friends that even I can become strong. Wanting to become strong for yourself doesn't work. Natsu has defeated many people like that. It is only when fighting for your Nakama That you become truly Strong." "Shut up cat" Gaara shouted before returning his attention to Naruto. "Stupid…friends?" muttered Naruto. "People who bring unnecessary emotions into battle should just die" "You just keep saying what you want…I swear I will beat you up!" Naruto jumped into the air with a kunai in his hand. Gaara laughed "You guys don't know the true meaning of being strong." "Shut up" screamed Naruto, kunai in hand, heading towards Gaara with the intention of attacking him. Gaara just swung his tail and knocked him into the bushes.
"Summoning no Jutsu" shouted Naruto, smoke covered the area before clearing where a blond haired man stood in front of Naruto with a Towel that had the words FairyTail on it in his hands. "And I was just about to sell a towel too. Hello Happy. I take it you must be Naruto. I'm Max pleased to meet you. I take it the Monster in front of us is the enemy. Also a sand User I see. Sand Storm!" a whirlwind of sand appeared in front of Max and headed towards Gaara who easily blocked it and Hit Max with his arm who was knocked out instantly. He lay there with cuts covering his body before turning into a puff of smoke having been returned to his shop. "Max" screamed Happy upon seeing his friend defeated so easily. "Too weak" commented Gaara.
"What's wrong? That all you have?" Gaara then reconnected his hand to the hand that held Sakura on the tree and began to squeeze. "You don't care what happens to your important friend?" "Sakura-Chan" screamed Naruto. 'I have to save Sakura-chan but how? My summoning wasn't enough. I know, I didn't use a lot of Chakra then, But if I try to use my Remaining chakra maybe I can summon a stronger Summons. Maybe that chibi Jiji. He was powerful.' "Summoning no Jutsu" "I have to summon the Chibi Jiji" smoke filled the area, when it lifted it left a little black cat who said, "Yo"
"Hmm so it's just a small child being attacked by a monster. Very well, I will protect you from that Monster. "Said the small cat. "What? You protect me? You know something? I don't even know If I'd be able to protect you. I hate you Fairies." Complained Naruto. "You know, you better not disrespect FairyTail, I may be new to the guild but I am a member regardless." "Anyway, I don't have time for this. Why trained so much. Do I really have only that much Chakra left? I can't think of anything else. I have to save everyone." "Save everyone? Very well I am Pantherlily. I will help you; after all, I need the training. And this sword Erza lent me will work for the moment, even though it's shorter than my normal sword." "That cat fight me? Don't make me laugth. I fight only for myself and a small cat isn't going to be any challenge at all." Gaara roared as sand covered his body transforming himself more, He then disconnected his hand from Sakura again, and prepared himself for battle.
The cat took a sword off its back and started to grow till it was larger than Naruto. Then wings appeared out its back. "Whoa, you cat's can do that?" said Naruto who then looked at Happy. "I can't grow like that" said Happy with a sad tone. Pantherlily Charged against the cat and slashed down with his blade, cutting into the sand partially, the sword shattered due to the density of the sand. Gaara tried to hit Lily but Lily dodged his arm and flew to above Gaara's head, Pantherlily forgot about the tail however, as it struck him from behind throwing him into the air. Pantherlily disappeared in a puff of smoke as soon as he crashed into a tree. "Now Uzumaki Naruto, What will you try now?"
Back in FairyTail, a few minutes earlier Max was about to hand a towel to a customer when he disappeared. "What?" asked the shocked customer" then suddenly Max appeared once more on the ground covered in injuries, holding a towel that wasn't damaged or dirty. Clearly whatever happened he protected the towel with his own body. A little later Erza was heard Screaming when Pantherlily landed on her Strawberry cake as she was about to have the first slice. As Erza started to beat up Gajeel, Makarov sighed and put his head in his hands. "That damn Naruto kid is worse than Natsu."
-A\N- So there is the long overdue Third chapter of summoning the Fairies. I hope you enjoyed it. Sorry if it was too long in the beginning, or if I skipped too many parts, but I believe It had to be written. Hope you enjoyed it. I will try to get the next part of Naruto vs. Gaara in soon. Next time he summons more powerful members of FairyTail.
