"Followers of the church of Jashin will forever praise your name Shikamaru." Said the masked man as he ripped off his mask, "Although i really didn't like the fact that we had to fake my death, and espically by your hands' proclaimed the man. It was Hidan, of the akatsuki.<br />
Kiba burst through the door, Akamaru following in his wake. "Ah Kiba Inuzaka, nice of you to join us" said Hidan as he nodded to Shikamaru. Shimamaru jumped as high as allowed in Naruto's cramped apartment, already weaving hand signs in mid air. He perched himself on Naruto's fridge and yelled out "Shadow Trap Jutsu"! Kiba was completely trapped by the shadows, but Akamaru wasn't, he jumped up at Shikamaru and bit his leg, leaving a huge gash and causing blood to spill everywhere. At the smell of blood Hidan ran over to the fridge, jumped up and kicked Akamaru as hard as he could, causing him to crash through the window and fall to the streets below.<br />
Kiba had been freed by Akamaru's brave attempt however and ran toward Shikamaru shouting "Fang jutsu"! His teeth transformed into razor sharp fangs as he bit Shikamaru's neck, instead of blood spilling out, a white mist did. It was a clone! The real Shikamaru stood behind Kiba, a knife to his back.<br />
"Enough" a voice said. It was Kakashi. Standing behind Hidan with a knife to his neck.
