Re: Dark Plague
"Strange." Itachi said, as he was readied to attack. "I don't sense him...." he said as he looked about.
"What are you blabbling about??" Naruto shouted, making a fist. Itachi then held two fingers together. "I'll finish this next time, Naruto-kun." Itachi said, as he poofed away.
"Whew! He was too strong for us, Naruto." Sakura said, catching her breath.
"Damnit! If we couldn't beat him, how will Sasuke do against him?!" Naruto said, concerned.
"Naruto, we should head back and look for Kakashi." Sakura said.
"Yeah." Naruto said, as they both ran off.
Back at the showdown between Kakashi and Sasuke....
"What....oh." Kakashi said, as he was drawn into some strange dimension that looked similar to when Itachi used his MS on Kakashi.
"I told you not to help. I don't need your help." Sasuke said, as he appeared out of thin air.
"What?" Kakashi asked, as he noticed his arms were chained down to the ground, so he was unable to make any movements with his arms. Kakashi struggled to free himself, but failed.
"I won't kill you, Kakashi." Sasuke said, as Kakashi suddenly found his one Sharingan eye was fading. "But know that the next time you do this, I won't be so easy on you." Sasuke said, as he looked Kakashi directly into his eyes.
Suddenly Kakashi found himself set ablaze. His body had been set on fire, starting from his feet going upwards. He struggled quite a bit to free himself of this, but couldn't. His clothes began burning into ashes, as his flash began to burn, and Kakashi yelled out in extreme agony. Sasuke stood there, infront of poor burning Kakashi, just staring at him with his sinister Sharingan eyes.
"What, what is he doing to Kakashi?" Lee asked.
"I don't know, but he's making Kakashi sweat a whole lot." Gai said, a bit concerned. Lee, Neji, and Gai just watched on as maybe less than a minute went by. Sasuke and Kakashi just stood there, motionless.
"SASUKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Kakashi screamed out, as his flesh began to peel off and hit the ground. "S....Sas......uke........" Kakashi barely said, as his charred body hit the ground hard. His flesh nearly burned off, his hair burned as well. Kakashi began to pass out, with a fading vision of Sasuke.
"I'm not finished with you, Kakashi." Sasuke said, as he leaned forward.
Kakashi suddenly woke up in an invisible box of water. "What....what the hell is this?" Kakashi asked himself, as he looked at his body and saw that he was back to normal. "How can I break free from this?" He thought to himself.
"You can't. Not until I'm through with you." Sasuke said. Kakashi had a shocked look on his face. It was as if Sasuke had the ability to read Kakashi's mind. Kakashi then found himself running out of air fast. He tried punching through the invisible barrier which kept the water in, but it was of no use. He swung his arms and legs wildly because he was unable to breathe. He held his neck and chest in a huge sum of pain. It seemed Kakashi was drowning, but the strange part was that the entire ordeal lasted for a while. Kakashi wasn't allowed to actually drown. Only feel the effects of drowning, and stay in that condition for a while. "Kill me!" Kakashi thought to himself. After the burning, and now this, he'd reached his breaking point.
"Now now, I said I won't kill you." Sasuke said. Suddenly, Kakashi stopped struggling, and he found his own body just floating above, with his vision fading.
"What's he doing now sensei?" Lee asked, a bit worried.
"I, I don't know, Lee. His sweating has stopped, but he looks pale." Gai said, as he looked at Sasuke.
"Naruto, wait!" Sakura shouted, as they both stopped on some large branches.
"What is it?" Naruto asked.
"Let me heal your wounds." Sakura offered.
"I'm okay Sakura-chan. We have to get back..." Naruto said.
"Naruto. If they're in trouble, we won't be of any use if we're hurt." Sakura said, as she sat Naruto down on the branch and began healing his arm.
"Naruto." She said.
"Hmm?" Naruto said.
"I can't believe you're still keeping your promise after all this time." Sakura said.
"When I make promises, I keep them." Naruto said. "I don't like seeing you cry." Naruto said.
"......" Sakura continued healing him.
"Sakura." Naruto said.
"Yes?" She asked.
"Do you, like him, still?" Naruto asked shyly.
"Like who?" She asked innocently.
"Sasuke. Do you still like him?" He asked.
"I never stopped, Naruto." Sakura said.
"Oh...." Naruto said, lowering his head.
"But I moved on. He chose his path, and I chose mine. I will always have a place for him in my heart. As a friend." Sakura said.
"YEAH BABY!!! OH YEAH!" Naruto thought to himself. "Oh. That's cool." Naruto said.
"Why do you ask?" Sakura asked.
"N...no reason!" Naruto said, as he blushed.
"You've grown alot, Naruto." She said, as she began healing his shoulder.
"Y...yeah. I have." Naruto said. He couldn't keep his eyes off her beautiful face. Although she looked beaten up, to Naruto, she looked like heaven.
"Blah blah, blah blah....blah..." Sakura said, in Naruto's mind.
"Yeeeaaahh." He said, just focusing on her.
"Blah! Blah blah...blah. Blah blah." She continued on in his mind.
"Oh, you're so right." Naruto said with a grin.
"Blah...stand....blah blah....up...blah blah blah!" She said in his mind.
"Oooookay." Naruto said, as he stood up, so she can heal him some more.
"Blah blah. Blah blah blah." She continued.
"Don't...don't you ever shut up?" Naruto asked, in a take charge kind of way.
"What did you say?" Sakura asked, with a o_O look on her face.
"I said shut up for once!" Naruto shouted.
"I...." She tried to say, as Naruto grabbed her in his arms and kissed her straight on her lips. She didn't resist the kiss, but she didn't really enjoy it either. The kiss to Naruto felt like it lasted for days, days of joy. He then let her go, and looked into her eyes.
"S...Sakura-chan, I'm sorry." Naruto said, scratching the back of his neck and lowering his head in shame.
Sakura just stood there, wondering how to react. She had a O_O look on her face. Mainly shock, and nothing else.
"I....I, think we should, get going now." Sakura said, as she looked away.
"Sakura, I'm so sorry! I didn't mean to make you feel bad! It's just..." Naruto tried to explain.
"Naruto! It's, okay. Let's just go." She said. Although it wasn't okay. Naruto was the first person to kiss her like that. She was a little touched, but at the same time, kind of wierded out about it.
"Yeah. Let's go." Naruto said, with a =\ look on his face. They both sped off into the trees.
Back at the battle scene. Well, more like the ownage scene (by the way, that lil' love scene there costed you guys two other stages of Sasuke's Mankekyou Sharingan. Hah!)
"It's almost over." Sasuke said.
Kakashi woke up, and saw Sasuke standing there, with a rather large, thick snake behind him. "Damnit! Why can't I use my Sharingan here?!" Kakashi though to himself.
"It's something I learned from Maikeru. I can cast a nearly unbreakable genjutsu that makes it seem as though any bloodline limit user has their bloodline limits shut off." Sasuke said.
"That's amazing." Kakashi said.
"Yes. Anyhow...." Sasuke said, as he directed the snake to attack Kakashi. Kakashi quickly lept into the air in hopes of dodging the snake, but only found himself coiled up in the large snakes' grasp. "So this is how you plan on beating Itachi?" Kakashi asked.
"Not entirely. While I do have the Mankekyou Sharingan now, i have much more power behind me. He gave me more than the Mankekyou Sharingan. He took away Orochimaru from within, but he left behind most of his powers and memories." Sasuke said.
"You're turning into a monster." Kakashi said, as he looked away. "This isn't how I remembered you." He said.
"Play with him." Sasuke said to his snake. The snake then looked at Kakashi. Kakashi had a very fearful look on his face just by looking at the snake eye to eye, as the snake slowly began to squeeze the life out of Kakashi. There was no struggling to be made. It was all about Kakashi being squashed, and squeezed into nothingness.
"Oh my." Neji said, as he saw Kakashi's body tighten up, and he had difficulty breathing.
"Kakashi!" Gai shouted. "Let him go you monster!" Gai said, as he kicked the hell out of Sasuke's physical body, which broke his hold. Sasuke's body hit the ground pretty hard, as did Kakashi's body. "Kakashi...?" Gai asked. Kakashi's body lay motionless on the ground, still suffering from the effects of Sasuke's attack. His body felt totally broken and battered. His skin still felt as if it were on fire, and he could barely breathe.
"Lee, Neji! Take him to the hospital at once!" Gai commanded.
"Yes!" They both said, as they carefully took Kakashi and headed towards Konoha.
Gai stared at Sasuke with a very angry face. "What have you done to him...." Gai said.
"Be grateful I spared his life." Sasuke said.
"HAAAAAA!!!!" Gai shouted, as he attacked Sasuke with a fast, hard hitting jump kick, which Sasuke dodged, and quickly struck Gai in the chest with an open palm thrust, which was coated in chakra. The strike sent Gai a few steps back. He didn't feel pain right there and then, but as soon as he began to move towards Sasuke, his chest tightened up a bit, and he spat out blood.
"Go back to Konoha. Killing you isn't part of my agenda right now." Sasuke said, as he turned and walked away.
Gai stood there grasping his chest with one hand, looking at Sasuke walk off. "What is he?" Gai asked himself.
"He must be in very delicate condition. Please be careful." Lee said, as Neji and Lee hopped through trees.
"Fuzzy eye brows! Neji!" Naruto shouted, as he stopped.
"Naruto!" Lee said, as he and Neji stopped.
"Kakashi-sensei??" Sakura said. "Why are you carrying him?" She asked.
"Sasuke...." Neji said.
