Chapter 5: The Kyuunin strengthens with the release of a third member. Without knowledge of their next member the three head towards the direction of two chakra signatures, for some fun. Kaze’s and Crow’s time is getting shorter by the second. And who is this mysterious person who awoke in an unknown place covered in darkness.
Chapter 6: Fire and Sand Makes Glass
He has been running for a significant amount of time. It’s hard to know where he is going. It seems as if he’s been running for days. Where’s his destination? Why can’t he see anything? Why, after so much running, is he not tired. He must continue. He does not know why, but he must.
Location: Wind Country
The three Kyuunin members head towards their destination at an alarming speed. They travelled more in these two days, than the five days it took Aozora and Kattan to reach Hangetsu. Katta’s chakra was surely at 100% now. His sand platform was flying, to the annoyance of Aozora, whose hair was out of control do to the wind. “Slow down! NOW!!” came her cry. Kattan obliged. “Awwhh, is the little princess’ hair all durty?” antagonized Hangetsu, now out of the jar. “Here, let me smooth it out for you.” he added, making a ball out of water. “Don’t you dare!?” came back Aozora, blue flame could be seen within her mouth. “I’ll roast you alive! Besides, it’s not my hair that concerns me.” She speech was slightly true, her hair did mean alot to her, but at the moment something else was on her mind.
“Why the sudden outburst?” asked Kattan. “Stop right here.” was all Aozora answered. She got off the sand platform. Kattan could see the search in her eyes. “Who is it?” asked Kattan, realizing the reason behind her concern. “Kishu.” answered Aozora. Hangetsu finally caught on. “It’s faint, but I know it’s him. He’s north of here.” she continued. “So, what you wanna do?” came Hangetsu’s voice. She searched her mind for just a moment.
“Those two chakra signatures bother me.” finally came Aozora. “That strong, huh?” said Kattan. Aozora just gave a short, but intense, nod. “I’ll go for Kishu. You two check those two out. We will meet up with you two after I release him.” Kattan and Hangetsu nodded there agreement. “Oh, and don’t underestimate them. One of them seems to possess the Sharingan.” “Sharingan!? In this time and age? There’s still Sharingan users?” came Hangetsu’s concern. “You sure you’re ok, by yourself?” came Kattan, surprisingly worried about his colleague. “Since when did I ever need help?” came Aozora arogant reply. “Fine. Let’s do this.” Hangetsu said before the team departed.
“What are you doing?” asked Kattan as he and Hangetsu were travelling on his sand platform. “Waiting, for the right time.” came Hangetsu’s devious smile, water ball at hand. After a brief moment, he launched the ball into the air. Kattan recognized the direction and gave a smile of his own. He sped up his platform and continued on their way.
Location: Wind Country
A cry of pure anger could be heard deep within the grass field of the old Grass Country. “Aaarrggh!! If this was not of the deepest importance, I would of taught that Hangetsu a lesson in manners!” cried out Aozora to herself. This was the second time in a week’s time she had to strain her hair. “I’ll get him back when I see him again.” she said continuing with her rant. “That is if he survives those to shinobi.” She grew quiet and drifted into thought. “To think a Sharingan user, and at that caliber, is still around. I must get to Kishu quick.“
Location: Fire Country
“I’m sooooo bored!! When are we going to find these guys?!” Hangetsu expressed his annoyance. “For the last time: I DON’T KNOW!!!” retaliated Kattan. “She was the sensory one! Just keep your eyes peeled.” That was enough to silence Hangetsu, for as short as it was. “So? What was that over there about?” Hangetsu started again. “What’re you going on about now? What was ‘what’ back there?” asked Kattan. “You know damn well what I’m talking about. That whole ‘You sure you’re ok, by yourself?’ nonsense.” continued on Hangetsu. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” addressed Kattan, trying his best to look preoccupied with searching for the two they’re after. “Yeah, and I’m not made of -” “JUMP!” Kattan gladly interrupted, as he jumped to avoid a huge fireball coming towards their direction. “Don’t change the subje-” Hangetsu was interrupted again, as the platform became glass and shattered on the floor.
“Where that come from?” came a voice underneath the shattered glass. “Within the trees. Be alert.” said Kattan upon his landing. “They’re using the trees as cover.” he continued. “I’ll accept you interrupting me, but those guys are going to pay.” said Hangetsu as he started to rise out of the glass. “Here comes two. DODGE!” said Kattan, dodging his second fireball. “Wha-” the impact of the fireball cut Hangetsu’s words short. “Yes! We got one!” came a voice from within the forest. “Found them!” smiled Kattan. “Sutton: Wind Slicers!” Kattan slashed at the air, once with each arm, shooting two sharp air waves towards his opponents. The waves cut through the trees like butter. Two shadowy figures, covered by cloaks emerged from the trees.
“You gave us away!” cried one of the two. “Sorry. I was just excited to get one of them.” tried to reason the other. “And who exactly did you get.” the puddle of water next to the glass expressed as it made a form of a man. “What?! Just what is this guy?” asked out loud the younger of the two. “I thought I taught you to always be on your guard?” came the strict tone of the other one. “These must be the two Aozora must of spoke of.” addressed Kattan. “They can’t be that strong. I’ve taken stronger fire jutsu than that in my time.” mocked Hangetsu. The head of the young one lowered in disappointment. “it must of came from you.” Hangetsu’s mocking continued. “I said keep your guard up!” came back the strict tone of the other one.
Kattan looked intensely at the man a few feet away from him. “So, that must mean the one who attacked me was you? That was some strong fire, boy. It was strong enough to make glass out of my platform, while in motion.” The young man kept quiet. “I guess we each have our dancing partners, huh Kattan?” said Hangetsu while forming what looked like a sword made of water. “Looks like it.” answered Kattan, his eyes leaving his target only to examine the landscape. “The only sand around this place is on this small road we’re on. I guess I have to stick with wind jutsu for the time being.“
The man used the same time Kattan looked away to look at his pupil. He hoped he wasn’t making a mistake. He felt his pupil might not be ready for the task. Could this fight be to soon? They still had so much training to do. Things were about to get serious, and all he could do is hope everything goes well.
Hangetsu voice interrupted Kattans thoughts. “I’m ready when you are?” Kattan gave him a nod, and the two went after their targets. The young man quickly made hand signs and attacked. “Katton: Flame Bullets!” Fire shards sprang out of the young man’s mouth, shooting at an alarming rate towards Kattan. The other one was unfortunate; the signs were to slow, Hangetsu arrived before they were complete. His sword narrowly missed it’s target, cutting only part of the cloak. “Come back here, you little bitch!” Hangetsu expressed his annoyance.
The ripped cloak showed a part of the person’s body; a leg to be precise. It was to slender to be that of a man. “Who are you calling a ‘bitch’?!” came the voice within it. Hangetsu’s smile came to his face, both for realizing his opponent was female, and the fact that he happened to push one of her buttons. “Is the little princess offended?” “Princess!?” came she came back. “Hiya! Stay focused!” again scolded the other one, kicking Kattan in the chest while doing so.”Hai! My apologies, Kasen-niisan.”
“Hiya? That’s a pretty name. But I prefer princess.” continued Hangetsu’s mocking tone. “I’ve had enough of this guy. And I don’t want to dissapoint brother.” Hiya thought to herself. Her pasture, and attitude, changed to a more serious one. “Bring it, puddles.” “WHAT!? Puddles?! Why you little bit-” again Hangetsu was interrupted. This time it by Hiya via a punch to the face.
“Alright. I had enough of these constant interruptions!!!” exclaimed Hangetsu as he grew in stature. “Sutton: Constant Rain!!!” suddenly Hangetsu’s body started shooting an array of rain drops at an alarming speed. The speed made the drops seem like bullets coming out of a machine gun. They were piercing anything on their way. Hiya knew this and could do nothing but run away as fast as she could. “Doton: Earth Spike Barrier!!” came Kasen’s words spikes rose from the earth to block the array of water headed towards his sister. Kattan used this opportunity to his advantage. “Sutton: Air Push!” from behind him, a strong gust of wind pushed him towards Kasen. The punch that followed sent Kasen flying deep within the forest. “NIIIIIII-SAAN!!!” cried out Hiya.
“You’re all mine now, princess!” came Hangetsu’s voice behind her. before she knew it, she was inside a water prison. Her air was closely coming to an end. “This was easier than I thought.” mockingly stated Hangetsu. Before Kattan could answer, he was hit by something made of fire to fast for either men to recognize. “What the hell was that!?” said Hangetsu before realizing his water prison was turning to ice. He detached from it, before risking turning himself. Soon after, the sphere of ice shattered with a fierce explosion, spreading Hangetsu all over the place.
“Damn. That was my last frost tag.” thought Hiya to herself. “Aren’t we the clever little princess.” said Hangetsu, once again reforming himself. “Guess I have to be a bit more cautious with you.” As Kattan started to rise, he was suddenly binded back down by wiring. “You’re not going anywhere.” came a voice from withing the trees. Kasen showed himself before speaking again. “These are not just some simple wires. They are made out of some strong synthetic fibers.” “How he get back here so fast? Was it he that hit me back then?“thought Kattan realizing he was where his platform crashed. “This is going to be a long shot, but hopefully it works.” He figured, if he can control sand, and glass is just nothing but heated sand.
Kasen quickly avoided the flying shards of glass coming towards him. Unfortunately he had to loosen his wires. He made his way to his sister. Hangetsu puddled his way back to Kattan. “How about we get serious now?” stated Hangetsu, his expression changing to a serious one, while making two swords out of his arms. “Sure thing. I’m getting tired of these brats.” returned Kattan, his expression the same, and glass hovering around him. “Since when can you do that?” asked Hangetsu at the sight of Kattan. “Since now, I guess. Don’t know for how long though.” answered Kattan.
“So, you think father was right? Is it them?” Hiya asked her older brother. Kasen noticed her demeanor completely changed. “That’s the Hiya I know. Looks like she’s done playing around. We sure did give them quite a show.“ He gave a proud smile at the thought. “Yes. I believe father was right. These two are the Ichibi and Sanbi from long ago.” Hiya stared back at her opponents. “Then I believe it’s time we get serious.” she said as she brought out two sai from her cloak. “Yes. I believe it’s time we do.” Kasen answered as he too looked at his opponents. “Let’s show them what the Uchiha are capable of nii-san.” Hiya said proudly. “Let’s” replied Kasen after finishing some hand signs. “Sharingan!”
