Re: Naruto vs Pain aftermatch predictions and Ideas
Since the actuall manga is really boring right now i'll join Shivex and write a prediction on the aftermath as well. Its long i won't lie lol.
Im going on a different tangent.
In this scenario Nagato is already dead, Naruto lets Konan go and has not returned to the village yet.
* The failure of one's duty *
Dusk falls, the weather cools as a light rain blankets the area.
"It feels like an appropiate ending for such a red day" Naruto thought as he stood on the branches of the paper tree now losing it's sturdiness since Konan left.
" Their dream was so much bigger than they were, yet they were willing to die for it even if seemed impossible to achive. All i could do was support them, in the end we weren't enough. Perhaps it will be diffent for you Naruto, you have a gift none of us had, the power to change others. Please keep the vision of a world at peace alive, achive what Nagato and Yahiko never could in your own way. "
Those were the last word she spoke to him before she departed. She didn't say where she would go but he knew it would not be to Aka and the masked ninja.
The rain felt good against his skin. It wasn't until now that it really hit him how tired he was.
Naruto: ( thinking ) No time to rest. better start making my way back to the village.
Naruto makes his way to the ground, the paper tree now sagging as the weight of the water soaked walls becomes too heavy to support. The opening he made on the side was still visible, he peers inside.
A metal structure is present at the corner, the legs spread apart, a side door opened. The ground next to still soft, the soil disturbed and elevated clearly showing the outline of grave occupied by a tall individual. A small paper rose sits on top it.
With a last glance the conversations that took place that day flash before Naruto'mind once again. "Peace", that word had taken a new meaning, now fallen from the wings of pain and suffering.
Naruto turns and begins walking away, the sky grows heavy as the rain intensified.
* scene shifts to the crater and the survivors *
Sakura: Damn it. why did it have to start raining now.
She helps a random villager to his feet, his arms around her shoulders as she supports him.
Sakura: Can you walk a little ??
Random villager: Yes. ( grunts from the pain )
The ninja and villagers who could still walk sweep various areas looking for survivors.Cries of despair are heard as dead bodies of loved ones are pulled from under the rubbles of fallen buildings. stretchers carrying the countless wounded are being transported to the area atop of the hokage mountain
where a few building remain standing.
Tsunade oversees the rescue efforts and gives out directions as the wounded pile up.
Tsunade: ( thinking ) So many wounded, out emergency supplies won't do.
A ninja approaches Tsunade.
Ninja: We have already dispached small squads to the neighboring
logging towns to get supplies.
Tsunade: Were they informed of the circumstances ?
Ninja: They were instructed not to mention the attack as you orded.
Tsunade: Good. If word got out of our current situation we could risk being attacked. Has a messanger been dispatched to the Sand ?
Ninja: Yes, he left about an hour ago. He should reach the Sand in 2 days.
Tsunade: Good work. Carry on.
Ninja: Yes Hokage-sama.
