Chapter 2

Naruto lay under a tree in one of the training grounds, his eyes closed as he thought of everything. "I want something exiting to happen," he grumbled under his breath.

"Well then, get up boy," a man said from beside him. Naruto opened his eyes to see a man with a fox max over his head.

"What do you want fox boy?" Naruto grunted.

"You're the fox boy," the ANBU snapped. "You are to report to the Hokage-sama immediatly." Naruto sighed to himself as he got up and dusted himself off.

"Fine," Naruto scoffed. He turned from the man and started running towards the Hokage Tower. The ANBU sighed as he turned around and headed off to find the other three ninja. Naruto got to the tower within four minutes and sprinted through the doors. "Yo, Baa-chan!" Naruto found himself in a wall in record time. Tsunade had a vein over one of her eyes, and a fire in them as well.

"Stop calling me that baka!" Tsunade screeched as she sat back into her chair.

"So, what do you need?" Naruto asked the Hokage with much interest.

"I'll tell you when the other three get here," Tsunade replied. At that time, Tenten, Neji, and Lee entered the room. "All right, you all are here now."

"What's this about?" Neji asked calmly.

"We got a request for a mission from Gaara," Tsunade replied.

"Gaara, how is he doing?" Naruto asked with exitment. Everyone sweatdropped, especially since he was exited to see the insane boy.

"H-He is doing fine," Tsunade stammared. "He is having trouble with a group of ninja who are led by a missing ninja. He can't send a team out at the moment, and has requested that you all go take care of them. After the mission, you are to head to Suna to meet Gaara. Which is why he requested Naruto take part in this mission."

"Yay, I get to see Gaara again," Naruto said with exitment.

"Not till you finish the mission," Tsunade corrected him.

"So Tsunade-sama, what's the villiage we are going to?" Tenten asked.

"A small villiage by the name of Surakag," Tsunade answered.

"That's a funny name," Naruto laughed.

"Who cares about the name, let's get going," Neji stated calmly. He turned on his heels and walked out of the room.

"Neji, wait, I'll walk with you!" Tenten called out to the departing Hyuuga.

"Well, let's go Naruto-kun," Lee said. "We could get some training in before we begin the mission."

"Yeah, I suppose," Naruto said with a nod to Lee and together they bounded out of the room.

A few hours later the group headed for Surakag met by the gate and prepared to leave. "Good luck you four," Sakura told them.

"No problem Sakura-chan," Naruto said with a wide grin.

"All right, let's move out," Neji said. He turned and bounded off into the woods.

"Wait for us!" Lee and Tenten called as they bounded off after their teammate.

"Can't believe he is the leader," Naruto grumbled.

"Naruto?" Sakura asked.

"Yes?" Naruto replied with a question.

"Be careful, we still need to get Sasuke-kun back," Sakura told him.

"Yeah, I know," Naruto smiled. He gave her a thumbs up before bounding off after his reatreating comrades.

"What took you so long?" Neji asked with an irritated voice.

"Sorry Neji," Naruto said with an embarrased blush.

"We have to keep on our toes, S-class ninja are going to be tough," Neji told the team.

"Right!" the other three said in unision.

It had been a few days, and the group was now in wind country. They walked through a path that was deep in a forest. The path connected to the villiage, and was a little different than the area around Suna. "I'm boared," Naruto yawned.

"Quit whining," Neji snapped to Naruto. "This is a mission, they are never fun."

"Well, fighting is," Naruto grumbled.

"I agree with you Naruto-kun," Lee said.

"Yay, at least bushybrows agrees," Naruto cheered.

"Shut up!" Tenten snapped at him. Naruto shut up instantly and just sighed.

'What is this feeling everytime she looks at me,' Naruto thought to himself.

'Shut your ass up you stupid brat!' a voice snarled from inside of his head. Naruto stopped with a wide eyed look.

"W-Who said that?" Naruto asked aloud. Everyone stopped and turned to look at him.

"What?" Tenten asked. Naruto looked around but saw nobody.

'I'm in your head idiot,' the voice snarled again.

'Who are you?' Naruto asked the inner voice.

'I'm Kyuubi idiot,' the voice said.

'Are you the nine-tailed fox?' Naruto asked.

'No, I'm Santa Clause, of course its me,' the voice said sarcastically.

"Are you okay?" Lee asked.

"What? Oh, I'm fine," Naruto said. "Let's get going." He moved pass the three people and continued on the path. 'So, what do you want?' Naruto asked the great fox.

'Simple, for you too shut up when I'm sleeping,' Kyuubi growled in a low voice.

'Oh, is that all?' Naruto asked the fox.

'Stop the wise craking you stupid bastard,' Kyuubi growled again.

'Okay, okay, I'll shut up,' Naruto said, careful not to make the fox mad. Naruto stopped when he heard something in the bushes. 'What the hell,' he thought to himself. "Get down!" he commanded his team. An instant later a storm of kunai came flying down towards them. A group of ninja stood ready to fight in front of them. "Hey you bastards, you almost hit us!"

"That's the whole point," one of the ninja laughed.

"Shut the hell up!" Naruto hollered at the guy. He did a familiar hand sign. "Shadow Clone Jutsu!" Twenty clones of Naruto appeared beside him and charged the ninja. Lee got into a fighting stance and started throwing kicks and punches at the group of ninja.

"Byakugan!" Neji called. He ran forward and used his gentle fist style to kill some of the ninja. Tenten brought out a set of shuriken and threw them into the body of a few ninja. She then took out a scroll and bit her thumb before using the blood to summon a long pole weapon. She ran forward and easily knocked two ninja that were attacking her. One ninja in the back of the group raised his sword and took down half of Naruto's clones in an instant.

"What the hell," Naruto muttered. He ran forward with his other clones, but was instantly knocked back. The ninja in front of them laughed as he pulled out a kunai that was glowing with red energy.

"Time to die demon," the ninja snarled. He ran forward towards Naruto, as the blonde shinobi did the same. The kunai met in the air and they began to slash rapidly. Lee rolled to the side to dodge an attack from one of the ninja, and quickly turned around and sent a kick into their abdomen, knocking them out. Neji flipped over one ninja and came face to face with another, which he quickly took down. A kunai was lunged at him but it stopped right before it hit him. An energy surrounded Neji, and he just smiled at the ninja.

"8 Trigrams Palm Rotation!" Neji commanded. He spun around and knocked any ninja near him away. The fell with a thud, and couldn't move again. Tenten was fighting near Naruto and was able to get a few kunai lunged in the eyes and chest of the enemy ninja.

"This is easy," Tenten commented as she spun around and knocked some people down with her pole weapon.

"Ahhhhhhhhhh!" a voice screamed from beside her. She quickly turned to see a red kunai struck into Naruto's arm. He pulled out, but began to wobble around the area. "What the," he muttered.

"A demon kunai," the ninja explained. "It can knock the demon inside of you out."

"W-What?" Naruto asked with a scared look. The ninja lifted up his sword and sent a mighty blow into Naruto's body. Tenten ran forward and managed to catch the blonde before he landed on the ground.

"Kill them," the ninja in front of them told his six men. The walked forward, which made Tenten walk backwards. She held Naruto tightly in her arms and came to a cliff. She turned her eyes to look down the cliff and back to the ninja.

"Guess your out of luck," one of the ninja said with a smile. Tenten gritted her teeth as she looked back down the cliff.

"Hold on tight," Tenten whispered into Naruto's ear. She pulled him closer to her body, and then jumped off the cliff and into the woods below.

"Damn, you four," the lead ninja said, pointing to the four on his left. "Get down there, and make sure they are dead." The four ninja nodded as the bounded for away down the cliff. The lead ninja sighed as he turned to see their leader facing off against two other fighters. "Guess I have to go help him," he mumbled. With that statement, he pulled out his long sword and charged into the battle.

To be continued...
