Sakumo, moving from treetop to treetop, silently looked back and forth, making sure the missing-nin was still in the area. As he scanned the immediate area, he heard a sharp noise. With the keen senses he possessed, Sakumo rushed towards the source of what sounded like metal clashing with metal. Was someone else looking for this man? Who was this man?
After making his way to a small clearing, he spotted the man he had previously fought with. He quickly grabbed his Sabre, causing the man to look his way.
“So, you just don’t give up, do you? Well, it’s your funeral.” the mysterious adversary spoke. In seconds, the man was behind Sakumo, kunai in hand. “Give up now, and you might get out of here alive.”
Breathing a large sigh, Sakumo swiftly swung his blade back, hoping to stab his attacker.
Prepared, the missing-nin quickly jumped back, as well as sending a flurry of shuriken Sakumo’s way. As Sakumo evaded the dozens of throwing stars, he noticed that they had been covered in explosive tags. Damn! he thought as the man detonated the strips of paper. With too many to evade, Sakumo was sent flying into a nearby tree. Without any hint of pain, Sakumo leaped towards his enemy, causing the missing-nin to flinch. Without any thought, Sakumo made several hand seals and yelled “Earth Release: Boulder Blizzard,” sending a large boulder into the air. Sakumo jumped up, sending a punch through the giant rock. The force of the rock caused the boulder to break into thousands of pieces; all of which aimed towards the mystery shinobi. On instinct, the missing-nin drew in a large breath and sent a wave of flames towards the shower of stones. The missing-nin then rushed Sakumo, coming in for the killer.
“I’m not in the mood for games, Uchiha.” Sakumo said with a sinister tone; stabbing his Sabre into the missing-nin’s chest. “You can’t fool me with the same technique twice.” he continued, just as the Uchiha was enveloped in a puff of smoke. From a nearby tree, the man looks upon Sakumo, a Sharingan forming in his right eye.
The Uchiha quietly jumped down from the tree limb he’d been standing on. “Hmph, so you finally figured it out? I guess I must give you some credit, no one in thirty years has caused me to activate my Sharingan.”
“Thirty years?” Sakumo asked. This man looked no older than twenty.
“Yes, thirty years.” the Uchiha whispered into Sakumo’s ear; having appeared next to him. “Now, let’s really fight.” he said, just as he punched Sakumo in the gut, sending him into the air.
With a sharp pain, Sakumo attempts to kick his adversary, but for his leg to… phase through him?! How was this possible?! But there was no time to think. Before he could even begin to come up with an explanation, the Uchiha clansman had made three hand seals and sent multiple flaming missiles towards him. Thinking on his feet, he ran towards the thicker region of the forest. Because of how thick the trees and brush were, he narrowly dodged the flames. As he ran, the missing-nin appeared in front of him, smiling a crooked smile. Sakumo continued to ran towards the enemy, weaving several hand seals as he ran. After the seals had been completed, Sakumo grabbed his Sabre and slashed at the unnamed Uchiha. Just as Sakumo had suspected, the blade had phased through him, much like his foot. Okay, now for part two of my plan… he thought as his hand became covered in electricity. He quickly thrust his palm into the man’s shoulder, causing the man to scream out in pain. It had worked!
Both men jumped back, hoping to get as much distance as possible. They stood there, silent. After several moment, which, to Sakumo, had felt like several hours, the Uchiha was the first to speak. “So, it appears you’ve found out my weakness. However, I still have a few tricks up my sleeve!” he said as a large gunbai appeared in front of him. He then made a hand seal and yelled, “Fire Release: Great Fireball Technique!” Immediately after the flame had reached the air, he swung his gunbai, causing the fireball to drastically increase in size. As the great flame made it’s way towards Sakumo, it overtook the trees, causing them to burn to a crisp. With nothing else coming to mind, Sakumo weaved a seal and created an equally large fireball to combat his adversary’s.
The two balls of flames clashed, causing them to reach a stalemate. This is not good. If I run out of chakra, I’ll be dead for sure… Sakumo thought as he continued to feed chakra into his jutsu. As he did so, his fireball slowly began to overwhelm his opponent’s. However, the Uchiha activated his Mangekyou Sharingan and yelled, “Amaterasu!” Immediately, the godly flames overcame Sakumo’s own flames, causing Sakumo to dash to the side.
“What are you?” Sakumo asked, a mix of curiosity and terror beginning to set in his mind.
“I am Madara… Madara Uchiha.” Madara said, his Mangekyou Sharingan beginning to deactivate. “Now that I’ve told you, you must be eliminated.”
Sakumo began to glare at his opponent. “You believe that you can defeat me that easily?” he asked, a hint of cockiness in his voice.
“If I hadn’t, I would never had told you my identity.” Without another word, Madara’s left eye began to change. As Sakumo continued to glare, his glare quickly became an expression of pure horror. Madara’s left eye had morphed into the Rinnegan, the “Samsara Eye”…
Sakumo, knowing he’d never be able to take on the Rinnegan in this condition, fled for Konoha.
“Heh, I think I’ll play with him while I still have business in Konoha.” Madara snickered as he phased into the unknown.
