Re: Dark Plague
With the blood gone, the polls fell to the ground, as Lee, Neji, and Sasuke got back down also.
"What power." Sasuke said. He hadn't activated his MS yet, but he certainly felt some of it's power surging through him.
"Gai....sensei?" Lee said, as he saw Gai's body on the ground.
"Kakashi is there. How did they survive in the blood?" Neji asked.
"It was an illusion." Sasuke said calmly.
"Impossible." Neji said.
Gai had woken up, and his wounds had begun to disappear. As did Kakashi's.
"L...Lee?" Gai said, as he slowly sat up.
"GAI-SENSEI!!!" Lee shouted, as he ran towards Gai with a ^_^ look on his face.
"He could have killed us." Kakashi said, as he too began to sit up.
"Strange that he didn't." Gai said.
"I think it was a genjutsu." Kakashi said.
"It was. It seems he's more like me than I thought." Sasuke said, remembering when he could have killed that mass of useless shinobi back at Orochimaru's lair, but didn't.
"Neji?" Lee asked as he saw Neji a bit upset at the fact that his Byakuugan couldn't even see through Maikeru's genjutsu.
"Sasuke...." Kakashi said, as he stood up, and wiped himself off.
"I'm leaving. I wouldn't follow if I were any of you." Sasuke said, with his back turned to everyone.
"Sasuke, at least let us help you. You don't have to take this route on your own." Kakashi offered.
"I will do this on my own, Kakashi." Sasuke said.
Sasuke suddenly had a flash, showing Maikeru training with someone younger. A child. They practiced some taijutsu, and naturally, Maikeru had held back. They were training in some sort of dojo. "Was the child his brother?" Sasuke asked himself. Sasuke came back to his senses.
"Sasuke, is it true that you defeated Orochimaru?" Kakashi asked.
"I defeated him. That other ninja killed him for good." Sasuke said, as he turned and looked at Kakashi.
"That's certainly good news!" Gai said with a smile.
"Right." Sasuke said, as he turned again to leave.
"Sasuke. You, you're a wanted criminal now." Kakashi said.
"Is that so." Sasuke said in a non caring way.
"Tsunade seems to think you are a good person, Sasuke." Gai said.
"I don't care. And I'm wasting time here. Goodbye." Sasuke said. Kakashi suddenly appeared infront of Sasuke.
"Get out of the way." Sasuke said in a serious tone.
"My experience tells me that you're not ready to fight Itachi. Tsunade feels the same way. We're going to help you whether you like it or not." Kakashi said.
"Will I have to kill you then?" Sasuke said.
"............" Everyone thought.
"We just helped you Sasuke, please don't act so selfishly." Lee said.
"Sasuke!" Kakashi said, as he walked backwards from Sasuke. "Show me why you think you can kill Itachi. Right now. And we'll leave you be if you can defeat me." Kakashi said in a serious tone, as he lifted his forehead protector, revealing his Sharingan eye.
"I won't say this again. Get out of my way." Sasuke said, as he began to draw his sword.
"No." Kakashi said, as Sasuke, with insane speed, zipped towards Kakashi, and stabbed his sword through Kakashi's chest. Kakashi was in shock at Sasuke's speed, as his body poofed away. Kakashi then appeared out of no where and rushed at Sasuke. He swung a punch at him, which Sasuke blocked. Kakashi took a few more swings with more speed, and Sasuke dodged them as well. (He's fast!)
"Kakashi! Stop fooling around!" Gai shouted. But he knew Kakashi wouldn't use his MS on Sasuke.
Kakashi jumped backwards into the air and used the Uchiha's grand fireball technique on Sasuke. Sasuke then quickly countered it with a large tidal wave, which made everyone jump high into the air, and flattened the fireball in an instant.
"You learned how to use water jutsu?!" Kakashi asked.
"I learned much with Orochimaru." Sasuke said. "Unfortunetely, you're wasting my time." Sasuke said, as he put his sword away.
"We're not finished yet!" Kakashi said. (He's stronger than I thought. Although he hasn't really done all that much right now, I can sense his power. I wonder if he can dodge...that.) Kakashi thought to himself.
Kakashi activated his Mankekyou Sharingan.
"Crap!" Gai thought to himself.
"Pfft." Sasuke said, as he too activated his Mankekyou Sharingan.
"You have it?" Kakashi asked.
"Shut up." Sasuke said, as the MS took effect on Kakashi.
Kakashi suddenly found himself.....
