The man with maroon hair nodded in acknowledgement and said. "We are here
upon you request, Grand Hokage, and are now here for the first time as a
symbol of peace between our countries."
Hokage nodded. "Yes, and we consider it the greatest honor for Konoha. Let
us introduce ourselves. I am Tsunade, Hokage of this village. The ones with
you are Uchiha Sasuke, Yamanaka Ino, and Uzumaki Naruto. Here are our ANBU
captains and here are the jounins, namely Kurenai, Ebison, Jiraiya, Iruka,
Anko, Asuma, Gai and Kakashi."
The princess arched a perfect eyebrow at this, but remained silent.
The man with short block hair then stepped forward. He looked at the prince
who nodded. "Let me introduce ourselves. I am Aoshi Shinomori, captain of
the warriors protecting our kingdom. Here are a few of our most highly
regarded fighters. Shido, the Beast Master." The man with unruly black hair
"Mido Ban, one who possess the Evil Eye." The chap with wild brown hair
raised a hand.
"Thunder Emperor, Amano Ginji." The blonde man grinned.
"Himiko, also known as Lady Poison." The blue-haired woman stepped forward.
"Boy Genius, Makubex." At this, Makubex protested, "Who's the boy genius?!"
"Akabane Kuroudo, Dr. Jackal." The man with a shoulder-length black hair
removed his hat.
"Yue, the guardian." The silver haired man nodded.
"And last, but definitely not the least, our prince and princess, Toya and
Chapter 3: Confusion
"Sakura?!" All from the Leaf village cried out. From the sound of their
voice, they were experiencing the shock of their life at the very moment.
Finally Tsunade-sama shook her head and said, "I- I am sorry. I realize
'sakura' is a very common name, I mean-"
Suddenly, Sakura giggled, managing to say, "But I am little weak Sakura you
knew, Tsunade-sama. Yes, Sir Kakashi, it IS me and please calm your jaw,
Sir Jiraiya, toads might come out."
Finally, Naruto, the usual hyper-active no. 1, broke the silence by saying,
or may I say, yelling, "Sakura-chan is back! Sakura-chan is back!"
Ah, well, Sasuke managed to open his mouth too and murmur, "Sakura...?"
"Ah, the bitch is back." Ino burst out unintentionally. You see, Ino's
anger for Sakura rose within each passing day. She always blamed her for
everything. Chouji's death, Shikamaru's distance, and of Sasuke's coldness.
Barely a split second after the words were out, all the members of the
Infinity Clan were ready to do battle, eyes burning with hatred.
Akabane smiled that creepy smile of his, saying "Forgive us, but we do not
tolerate such vulgar words addressed to our ladyship. If you do not
understand, I would willingly cut your tongue out."
"Akabane-san! Everyone, calm down!" Sakura exclaimed. "Please, you're
making a big deal about nothing at all! Lower your weapons and fighting
stances!" Of course, everyone obliged.
But then, Akabane was not yet finished. His image grew hazy and then back
to being solid, all in a split second. This was only seen by the sharp eyes
of the Infinity Clan, and was unnoticed by those from Konoha, Tsunade
included. "Let this be a reminder of your deed." He slightly touched his
hat, and suddenly, Ino screamed.
"My face! My face!" Her cheeks each have a slash on them, both bleeding.
"We are leaving now to go to the inn. Excuse us." Sakura graciously said as
her group filed out of the room, her eyes somewhat mirroring her concern.
At this, she closed the door.
I forgot to mention, Sasuke was still standing in shock.
"Sakura is back?!" Hinata almost screamed. "She is?! I must go see her!
Come Tenten! Naruto, please tell us which way!"
Naruto was on his way home when he met up with his girlfriend, Hinata, who
was with Tenten, hanging out at the park. Hinata and Tenten, who slowly
became close to Sakura before she left, were always believing that she
would return and always kept faith. So, it paid off. Sakura is back.
"Akabane-san! You shouldn't have done that!" Sakura said, pacing the floor.
"But Sakura, what he did was just right, that witch deserves it!" Misao
countered angrily. They were all gathered at the common room of their,
well, grouped rooms. It was composed of 3 bedrooms, one was occupied by the
ladies and Makubex, while the men were divided to two for the rooms. Misao
Makimachi, a close friend of Sakura, just arrived with Hevn, with the
message that Sesshoumaru will not be able to come and Kadsuki sprained his
ankle and was escorted back to Eternia, their home town.
"That girl sounds so stuck-up! Blonde and annoying too!" Hevn said,
flipping her hair haughtily.
"As if she wasn't stuck-up..." Ban murmured.
"What was that again?!"
"Someone's coming!" Misao said, alerting everyone. She was gifted the
ability of detection and if she concentrated, she can see through walls.
"Huh!" Hevn said. "As if we should be on guard with them!"
"It doesn't' hurt to be alert, Hevn-san..." Ginji replied.
Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. Yue, who was leaning by the wall,
Sakura's eyes widened slightly and she joyfully cried, "Hinata! Tenten!"
PEOPLE!!! FORGIVE ME!!!!!! Please give me ideas! I'm kinda running out for
Infiltrating Sadness. By the way, I'm giving Hevn ability too! She can use
her hair as weapon, like in Flame of Recca! Thanks for all those who read!
