Me and shikamaru found most of the others already together just finishing off their last opponents they pretty tired & scared already from facing numerous opponents.I noticed that sasuke, sakura & kiba were missing but thought theyn would be alright we quickly got into talking about the situation.<br />
We have to stick together" ino suggested <br />
shikamaru agreed quickly. " It better to stay together since You guy are already running low on charkra plus me and naruto are still reletivly fresh now because of our break after our fights"<br />
"didnt you fight any of the enemy" said an annoyed ino<br />
" it better because our enemy will be tired now making it easier for us to gain an advantage".<br />
What shikamaru said was true becuse of sound & sand ninja being tired from numerous fight it would be easier to kill them because their guard would be lax. His sword was designed to take out numerous opponent and some of the sound ninja we using katanas & kodachis themselves and their numbers werwe incresing.<br />
I started to think it would be time to drop my mask of weakness and fight seriously i had been training privately doing thousands of slashes with the sword to get used to the weight and learning few wind jutsu that i had found in a dumpster which i some how found easy, my muscle mass had increased allowing him to lift the sword one handed and dish out a decent punch like the uppercut i gave neji i hid my muscle under my orange jacket.<br />
I had to stop wasting time the blood shed of his comrades had to stop even if he had to go all out he realised & kill his heart and become what konoha feared he was a Demon he had wasted enough time the time for action was now.
