The crow flies out of Naruto's mouth and circles above his head, the MS swirling in its eye.
Naruto: "Itachi! what is that thing? What did you put into me?!"
Itachi: "Something to help you fight my little brother naruto, do you remember when you fought my doppleganger alongside Kakashi senpai?"
Naruto flashbacks to the fight with Itachi when they were going to Rescue Gaara.
He remembers being caught in the Genjutsu.
He remembers Grandma Kyo telling him "If the fight is one-on-one then you run!".
He remembers Kakashi telling him how it all happens in an instant.
Naruto: "Yeh i remember, i'm not all that good against Genjutsu, never have been but I've got my chakra mode now!!". Naruto Drops out of chakra Mode, "Taju Kagebunshin no Jutsu", a hundred naruto clones leap towards itachi.
Naruto: "all i have to do is get out of chakra mode and i can get out of any genjutsu!!"
Itachi appears directly behind naruto, "You can't afford to get caught up in it in the first place naruto!"
He grabs naruto by the throat and stabs him in the back with a Kunai.
Itachi: "I'm sorrry naruto, i wish i had failed this mission too!"
He dissapeare from behind naruto and reappears next to nagato. The two summoned creatures also dissapear leaving nagato and Itachi facing naruto and Bee.
Naruto: "What do you mean you wish you had failed?!! naruto is still standing holding his back looking severely hurt.
Itachi: "I don't have time for that naruto, it won't help you to know anyway. But you need to know about that crow!"
Nagato turns to itachi:" I have some control, I'm doing it now, I won't be able to give you long, do what you must". He sits on the floor and creates hand signs, a massive Seal appears on the floor surrounding both itachi and nagato"
Kabuto: what the hell???!!! why are they not returning to me?!! what are you doing Nagato!!
Naruto: "what the hell is that"?!!
Itachi: "Naruto we don't have long, listen. I knew if my little brother ever chose to follow madarra then it wouldn't be long before he got my eyes too. I don't know what abilities he'll possess but the level of battle that you two must face at that time will be higher than a battle between kages. You cannot afford to have a weakness against the sharingan even if only for a second, that is where that crow comes in".
The crow suddenly dives towards naruto and flies back into his mouth.
Itach: No genjutsu will work on you whilst that is there naruto it will absorb any genjutsu thrown your way even my Tsukoyomi. It will also...
The seal on the ground suddenly dissapears and two caskets rise from the ground behind itachi and nagato. The lids close over them and they dissapear.
Kabuto is sitting back now with a big smile on his face loooking all relaxed. " You two did give me a little trouble but since you completed your mission all is forgiven".
He holds up a vial in front of his blade full of blood. We see a flashback of naruto as itachi pulls back a vial of the blood from where he stabbed him.
Kabuto: "Now Naruto kun, alive or dead you will be my puppet"
From the shadows: "I was about to say the exact same thing"
