Set in the "Things Team Nineteen Are No Longer Allowed to Do" 'verse
I do not own the Naruto franchise. I do not own the original idea of Team 19. H.E. Grey has the honor of being the original author of the Team 19 series. Please check out this author's fine work. Thank you for the chance to write this.
A/N: I own Maiko. F.Y.I. She busted out both of her knees fighting enemy ninja upside down on a tree branch. Then she fell from the branch and knocked her head pretty good. She became a seal maker.
140. You are re-banned from all and any explosive devices Iruka. We don't care what Tsume said.
"Iruka-san, Kotetsu-san, Izumo-san!"
The three genin turned to see a young looking woman hobble towards them.
"Maiko-san, how are you today?"
Maiko leaned forward on her canes. "Well. I'm doing quite well, thank you."
The boys saw a pressure bandage wrapped around her left arm. "Did you have more ink made today?" Iruka asked.
"I did, I did," dark brown hair flopped into her face before being pushed back. "That reminds me. I have my thank you gift for that last mission you helped me with." She pulled her shoulder pouch in front of her and began digging. "Here!"
A single sheet of paper was presented with flare before the genin. Kotetsu peered at the writing.
"An explosion seal? And what are those extra marks? I don't recognize them."
"They are what make this the perfect gift, yes, yes." A wide grin pushed her glasses up. "Most explosion tags continue to burn even after become wet. Their effectiveness is reduced quite a bit, however. If they are completely submerged, there is nearly no damage." Her head sadly shook her hair back into her face. Maiko pushed it back with a small smirk, "I made these seals better."
The boys joined the seal worker's smirk. All three spoke in a whisper, "They still do full damage underwater." The troublemakers found themselves with a seal.
"Now, now boys," Maiko drew herself up. "That has a small range blast only. Five meters max. I'm still working a few kinks out of it, but it should be good to go."
Iruka latched on with a firm hug first, Kotetsu and Izumo quickly followed. Maiko smiled. She did not understand why everyone else seemed to hate this genin team. They never caused her any trouble. They were always so sweet to her.
"You boys do a good job on your training," she said limping away. "Don't forget to come by if you want a sweet treat."
"Hey," Izumo spoke when she was gone. "What are we going to do with this?"
"I have the perfect plan," Iruka spoke darkly.
"Iruka, why are we in the restroom?"
"Tsume-sama said that the toilets needed to be cleaned. 'Clean 'em with a bang!' she said." Iruka took his explosion tag out. "I'm gonna light this baby with a ten second delay. Count me off."
The other two boys moved their positions behind Iruka.
"Light, drop, three, flush, five, six, seven, eight, nine, …"
