(Note, this takes place around a random time of Naruto Shippuden, don't expect it to match completely with the storyline of Naruto)
A 16 year old teenager, Nathan, and his 17 year old friend, Jeremy, were students of a dojo hidden within the United States mountains....this dojo taught the art of Ninjutsu as the United States knew it; advanced Taijutsu art forms as well as stealthy techniques, and the art of cleaning glasses. [Ergo, they were glasses.]
This dojo was not a true Ninjutsu dojo, but it taught arts to those who lived in the United States, who lived to strengthen their bodies against possible foes, who lived to overcome all obstacles, who lived to...OK that's enough.
One night under a blue moon, Nathan and Jeremy are called by their sensei, Salo. "Listen you two, I am going to put you both in a program...one that will transfer you to a different dojo outside of these United States." Nathan smiled "Wow, that sounds great sensei! But..." he tried to search Salo's mind...
Nathan has had psychic powers ever since birth, and with these powers he could tell if there was more to a story then what met the eyes "You have always given us the best training, and even though I am still at the 5th Kyu (Shoden Taijutsu Belt), it does seem a bit weird why you would send me instead of the others...even Jeremy is better, top of the class!" Jeremy shook his head "Ok...enough dude." he rose his glasses up "You talk too much sometimes Nathan..."
Jeremy's brownish skin, in comparison to Nathan's pale white skin, seemed much darker in the moonlit light "Let me guess Master Salo, you are going to have us go to the Land of Fire?" Salo blinks surprised but nodded "Yes..." Jeremy looked at his pocket. In his pocket was a cell phone which contained a link to government satellites, he was a agent working for the government in one way but, in another he looked like an average Joe.
"Well, I have seen the area once before....but don't ask why." Nathan shakes his head "Do you know what new techniques we could learn?" Jeremy looked down "Not really dude." although he only partially knew the basics, it was a lie all the same.
Nathan shrugs "Well, at least we will get to train more." Salo nodded "Just remember though my students....your training will go towards becoming more advanced in the ways of Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and Gen...." he shut himself up "Well, I think you get the point."
Nathan heard that last detail and thought to himself "Gen...what?" he pondered this, and before he could ask Salo pulled his grayish hair from his face, the wrinkles apparently corresponding to his age, 60 "I need you two to rest tonight, and do not talk of this among your peers...this will be a new experience that I want you to discover the hard way." Nathan stopped searching Salo's mind and thought "The hard way...we would get more experience and learn much quicker, that's what Master Salo told me once before of doing things the hard way." Jeremy nodded "Yep, better then just spoiling the trip for us."
After bowing to their sensei, Nathan found himself in a daze he went towards his room. The doors to each of the rooms were nicely polished although each had certain room numbers to help the students better find their rooms. A dark beast like figure with red glowing eyes surveyed them walking back to their rooms from the top of the dojo, then went back into hiding within the nearby trees.
Girls and boys would either be separated or put together in certain rooms, but too much segregation would halt teamwork if they could not learn to get used to each other. Teamwork was the main goal, but as a precaution there would be security cameras checking up on each room to make sure no one is harmed or otherwise; Salo knew some of his students were still immature and knew not the value of proper relationships.
Nathan yawned and opened his door, finding it odd it was so quiet "Usually the other students are making noise in the room next door...room 12, I know it isn't Jeremy cause hes on his lonesome in room 14, just as I am here..." he stayed in room 13. "Two girls in the other room that love talking about that that smart alek Slater...I wish they could stop talking and start acting." he sat down on his bed and sighed "Oh well...I'm not a pretty boy or one to judge Slater by it, all I can do is find my purpose in life before I find someone special." Soon a knocking was heard at the door. "Hey Nate!" Jeremy stated "Its me," Nathan got up from the bed and walked towards the door, his steps slow but eventually his hand found the door knob and opened the door. "Hey Jeremy...you wanted to talk about something?" "Yeah, are you gonna be ready to go tomorrow?" Nathan shook his head "Who knows? As long as I can learn more...I shouldn't have to be concerned about what Master Salo was holding back," " Tell me about it." Jeremy said sarcastically
Nathan went back in his room and sat down on his bed while Jeremy heard some noise from room 12 "What is going on next door?" Nathan sighed "Amanda and Amy are talking about Slater," "Ok then...I will be right back." Jeremy left suddenly while the door stayed open. Nathan waited patiently until finally the noise halted, he looked around curiously only to find Jeremy's figure standing at the door once more "So, are you excited?" Nathan stuttered a bit "Wait a minute...what did you....ugh why do I even bother." he nodded "Yes I am excited somewhat, and what about you?" "I'm also excited...oh I got something for you for the trip." he took out one of his spare cell phones from his other pocket and threw it at him lightly. While the cellphone was in midair Nathan used his Telekinesis to stop the cell phone and bring it to his hand as he looked at it "...Curious you find the time to not only think of me but disobey Master Salo's rules about electronics." Jeremy chuckled "If I wanted to follow the rules I would have stayed in high school...but since I couldn't tell them about my "cover"..." "Ok I got it, I remember your phone dropped out of your pocket...one of the first stories you told me, among other secrets...too bad you can't tell me everything, agent." Jeremy sighed "Ah well...better than nothing, you know secrets are my life now....your lucky I even told you about my girlfriend."
Nathan blinked "Wait you didn't tell me that," "Well now I,m going to tell ya...her name is Angel, and that's all you need to know." Nathan sighed "Long distance relationships are not good Jeremy...I didn't read your mind because I can't for some reason, yet I assume it's a long distance relationship because I have not seen her before." "Well, to tell the truth...I am engaged to her." Nathan's jaw dropped.
Amy and Angela came to the door having heard the conversation from the side of the door frame "What the heck!?" they both exclaimed. Nathan coughed and then walked over to the door "Eavesdroppers are not welcome...." Amy said "Wait a minute, we are not eavesdropping, we were just about to come over here and apologize for the noise...and overheard it."
"Overheard it...right..." Nathan sat down on his bed and mumbled to himself while Jeremy hit him upside the head with an open hand. "That is no way to talk to a lady!" Jeremy got up from the bed and bowed towards them "I apologize for his rudeness...so what of me and my girlfriend's engagement?" Angela waved her blondish hair from her face and said "How!? Why!? Who!?" she was shocked because Jeremy was only 17, a bit young to think about marriage.
"Long story...besides its near bedtime, Master Salo would get angry if someone wasn't asleep..." Amy nodded and grabbed Angela's right arm with her left hand, then waved at the two teenagers "Bye Jeremy, bye...Nathan," she chuckled as she dragged her friend away from the room as she struggled to break free from 16-year old Amy's death grip. The young 15 year old Angela irritably said "Let go! I want to know what's going on!" Amy let her go...then pushed her into their room "We will talk about this later Angela..."
While the two cats quarreled, Jeremy looked at Nathan "Want me to tell you about the phone's features now?" Nathan smiled widely "Yes please!" Jeremy took a deep breath and said "The features include: A internet connection, unlimited text, camera, satellite up link, and unlimited calling...oh and an SD card slot which works for the watch and cell phone...the watch is a recording device too" he thinks for a second then snaps his fingers "It also has holographic features..." Nathans jaw dropped as he couldn't really find any words to describe how surprised and in awe he was.
Jeremy chuckled "You should see my phone...it's a more updated versio-" before he could finish, Angela kicked the door open and yelled "A cell phone!? You have a cell pho-" Amy growled a little and took Angela by her left arm "I said to stay in the room!" Angela said "They have cell phones!" she said to Amy.
Amy looked curiously over at Jeremy who was a little nervous "Eh...can we keep this from Master Salo please?" Amy folded her arms together after releasing her grip on her disoriented friend "Tell me how the phones got here, and maybe I will..."
Jeremy soon thought up a lie and a truth as well "Actually...I told sensei that this was a shock-cell phone, kind of a prank," "I don't buy it.." says Angela who walks towards Jeremy and swipes the cell phone from his hand...he swiftly presses the middle button amongst the phone delivering a mild shock to Angela, a mild scream is heard as her grip on the cell phone was lost, it slipped from her hands.
"You dummy, what did I say!?" Angela dropped the cell phone and sighed lowly "Aww...ok I believe you....but that's a bit of a heart-breaker," she wanted to call her family whom she had not talked to in a year. Nathan just watched silently as the two girls left the room once more, Amy softly saying goodnight to the boys as she shut the door behind her.
Jeremy picks up the cell phone and smiles "One more thing...almost indestructible..." he said in reference to its features. He presses one of the buttons on the phone, disabling prank mode. Afterwards he made a call to his supervisor within the CIA, Bob
"Hello Agent J.R" said Bob, and in a rushed tone of voice too. Jeremy said "Hi Bobtail," he joked "What's going on?" While ignoring his top agent's humor, he said "I have heard you will soon be going out of the country...found your name and...Someone named Nathan Henry on a Private Jet list to go to a foreign country, what is going on?"
"I'm going to the Land of Fire, Master Salo is sending us there for more training...not that I need it though," he said proudly as Bob agreed "Yes...an expert in over 800 different fighting styles and not exactly bound to this realm...do you ever sleep at night?" he joked and said "Anyhow, the Land Of Fire as I have studied is a unique country filled with Asian stereotypes...just not Asian."
"You mean their ninjas?" asked Jeremy while Bob agreed "Yes, but look out for the ninja whom attacked the base while trying to steal our nuclear bombs and satellite link-ups," he sent Jeremy a picture of the ninja to his watch, when Jeremy looked at the picture he saw a black-haired, snake eyed, pale skinned person with a evil smile. "We also have suspicion of a group that tried to do the same thing...I will try to find some evidence to get you a photo," Jeremy sighed with discontent "Better be soon..."
"Can do B-" "One more thing Jeremy, I will be sending you oriental ringtones as well so you may feel more welcome there," Jeremy nodded "Thanks..." he said "Well, say hi to the kids for me...and talk to you later," Bob said his goodbyes as well and got off of the phone.
During the night Salo was singing Purple Rain, it was really awful singing to put it lightly..."Shut up Salo-Sensei!" yelled Jeremy from across the hall within his own room; making Salo silent yet sad. "What's wrong with my singing?" he pondered as he got into his bed feeling a little bored. Nathan in the meantime whispered in his sleep "It needs work..." as he caught the off brainwaves from Salo in the distance.
It is daytime now in the Rockies and both Jeremy as well as Nathan were ready to tackle the day, as well as this new venture. In the middle of eating their assorted breakfast composed of pancakes and waffles at the Mess Hall, an oriental ring tone sounded off from Jeremy's left pocket right after they got their food. "Crap...i,m in trouble," whispered Jeremy as Master Sensei appeared right behind him as well as most of the other students "Hey did I hear a cell phone!?" "The smart alek has a cell!" "Let me borrow it please!" The barrage of comments was silenced once Salo-Sensei reached into his pocket, pulled out an air horn, and let it off. As soon as everyone quieted down, and Nathan let go of his ears since the horn was right next to them, Salo quietly walked over to Jeremy so he was staring him down "...So, a staring contest?" Jeremy said nervously as Salo shook his head "You know the rules Jeremy, how am I supposed to let you go on that field trip now?" Jeremy stood silent for a second then said "Because i,m the best...in the school," "Jeremy, you may be the best, but looking down on your peers as if they could not reach your level one day does not explain how you can still go on the field trip...now let me look at this letter I received before I take further action,"
Salo held within his hand a white envelope with a Government Seal in place of a stamp, and was written to Salo, as he opened it up with his trusty letter opener, sliding it along the back of the envelope until it opened. Soon, he pulled out the contents of the letter which contained a note, a rubber band, and a piece of string
Dear Master Salo,
We of the CIA have to notify you that Jeremy Rodriguez, a.k.a J.R [do not disclose this alias at any time] must keep some electronics to keep in contact with his superiors just in case of any national threats. We thank you for your cooperation in this matter, and make sure to give Jeremy the rubber band and piece of string. He will know what it is for.
From, Bob *******
P.S. This letter will self destruct once you throw it in the air, or in ten seconds after reading it.
Salo quickly crumples up the letter and throws it out the nearby window, which lands in a big trashcan near the building by mistake...the trash can soon becomes trash as it explodes, and strangely enough launches into the sky. Jeremy chuckled a bit as he said "There it goes!" while Salo stood quiet, somewhat befuddled...once the trash can was out of view with a trail of smoke chasing it, and out of the state for that matter, Salo folded his arms with an unimpressed demeanor upon his face and said "Your bus will be here in ten minutes...here are your tickets." Salo gave them both two fold out plane tickets "And Jeremy, I have three more things for you...this rubber band, piece of string..." Jeremy took both small items and said "I'll have to call Bobbo later and see why I need these..." "You will also need this," Salo said as he immediately and swiftly slipped a bill for the trashcan into Jeremy's pocket.
