Everyone is expecting Madara to spill the beans in 467... but I sense that Kishimoto will troll with us, delaying a little the great revelation! So only in my 468 Madara will talk
Madara: Since I’ll come clean about myself, I guess I won’t needing this…(he puts Sasuke on the floor and takes off his mask, revealing his face) Zetsu, take him. (White Zetsu grabs Sasuke and disappears with him)
(Yamato has fixed the roof; Naruto wanders in the room; Kakashi and Yamato are sitted, staring at Naruto)
Kakashi: You need to calm down. Since Madara left, you didn’t stop wandering.
Naruto: How can I be calm when that guy is plotting something with Sasuke?! We need to find Sasuke before Madara makes his move!
Yamato: Naruto, you know Sasuke won’t comply with that. Like he said, he severed all the bonds he had in the past.
Naruto: But not me! I’ll find Sasuke and bring him back home, even if it takes my whole life to do it!
Naruto: First, we got to go to the summit and talk with the Kage to forgive Sasuke!
Kakashi: Do you even listened to the Raikage? It’s not their affair, so they won’t listen, or even worse, they might find themselves offended and war might rage in. Besides, we already are in the risk of being considered missing-nin, we got to be careful.
Yamato: Kakashi-senpai is right, Naruto. (sounds of fight are heard) What’s this? (everyone rushes to the window; they see Danzou and his guards from afar, against Ao)
Kakashi: Danzou? What he’s doing here, fighting?
Yamato: Something’s wrong… (Naruto jumps from the window to the ground)
Yamato & Kakashi: Naruto! (they follow him)
(Danzou and his guards are close to Ao; Ao is injured and on his knees)
Danzou: Any last words?
Ao: Even if I die, don’t think you’ll get away with it. The Mizukage will hunt you down… and the Raikage, too…
Danzou: Hmph, what a disgrace… (wood sprouts from the ground and restrains Danzou and his guards)
Danzou: (thinking) Mokuton? That means… (Naruto approaches with Kakashi and Yamato; still thinking) So, Sai betrayed me. I’ll dispose of him later.
Naruto: What’s happening here?
Ao: (thinking) His chakra is out of the charts. Is he… the Kyuubi’s Jinchuuriki? (talking) The Hokage was mind controlling the moderator of the Summit and, in top of that, he ran away when the Akatsuki invaded the building.
Ao: Yes… Uchiha Sasuke was the one.
Kakashi: Oh boy…
Naruto: We got to go there, before the other Kages kill him!
Kakashi: Naruto, please, don’t rush things.
Kakashi: You go there and then what? What you’ll do?
Yamato: Kakashi-senpai is right, we need to think before we act.
Ao: Excuse me, but the Hokage must return to the summit, to answer for his actions.
Danzou: Hmpf, again with the accusations...
Ao: Since you have such a formidable restraining jutsu, I’d be glad if you join me, to escort the Hokage back to the Summit.
Naruto: Of course!
Yamato: It seems we don’t have a choice.
Kakashi: And, Danzou… (uncovers his sharingan) I’ll keep an eye on you.
Danzou: Hmpf… we’ll talk later about your little escapade.
Kakashi: (to Ao) Can you walk?
Ao: Yes, but now… let’s return.
Raikage: You think we’ll sit here and let you speak? (rushes towards Madara) I don’t think so! (punches Madara, but Raikage’s fist passes through him) What the hell?
Gaara: (thinking) The attack passed right though him!
Madara: Please don’t interrupt me… (he steps back; Karin tries to escape, but is stopped by Choujuurou and Akatsuchi)
Raikage: You’ll pay for what Akatsuki did to my brother!
Madara: If you listen to what I have to say, I’ll tell you what happened to your brother.
Raikage: I don’t trust you!
Raikage: What now, Shii? Don’t you see the situation?
Shii: I know, but his chakra isn’t changing. He speaks the truth.
Raikage: What?! You got to be kidding me!
Shii: Unfortunatly, I am not.
Tsuchikage: (thinking) Since taijutsu doesn’t work with him… (speaking) Jinton: Genkai Hakuri no Jutsu! (the cube of energy engulfs Madara) Got him!
Madara: (appears behind Tsuchikage) I thought I was clear when I said “don’t interrupt me”.
Mizukage: (thinking) How did he..?
Madara: Now that I notice, the Hokage is missing… shall we wait for him?
(Naruto and co arrives at the outskirts of the Summit’s building)
Kakashi: Look at this mess…
Naruto: (thinking) What happened to you, Sasuke?
Kurotsuchi: (appearing from beneath the pillars ruins; thinking) Oof, for a moment there, I thought I was a goner… (Kakashi grabs her hand)
Kakashi: Are you alright?
Kurotsuchi: I think so…
Ao: You’re from Iwagakure, right? As the fight stopped?
Kurotsuchi: I don’t know, I was hidden in the pillars, watching the battle between the Raikage and Uchiha Sasuke, and that Sasuke guy destroyed the pillars, and if it wasn’t for my Underground Move Jutsu I think I would die in there!
Naruto: You know where Sasuke is?
Kurotsuchi: I think he went inside the Summit’s building.
Naruto: Let’s go!
(they enter the Summit’s room; everyone stares at them)
Tsuchikage: (thinking) Who are those two? One looks like the White Fang, the other reminds me of the Yellow Flash…
Raikage: (thinking) It’s that brat from before…
Karin: (thinking) So that’s Naruto…
Madara: You sure took your sweet time, Hokage. And glad you could make it, Naruto.
Ao: (thinking) Another Sharingan user, they just keep coming…
Danzou: (thinking) His face… Madara…
Naruto: What the hell are you doing here? Where’s Sasuke?!
Madara: Sorry, but Sasuke already left the building…
Madara: My, my, my, don’t be so hasty. Grab a seat and listen to what I have to say…
