This story is getting kind of convoluted. You are throwing too much out trying to establish some kind of drama that really isn't working too well. Hopefully you will start tightening this up as we go along.

Also, unless I'm remembering wrong, you never did explain just how Danzo became Hokage. WIth Tsunade as Hokage before, she'd never just hand it over to him. Where's the backstory to explain?

Good writing, but there are two simple mistakes. Luckily those are easily fixable with a little information. He ya go!
...your arm to heal after I *break* it. Not brake it.
Break. Break that table. It's going to break.
Brake. That which stops forward motion. The brakes in a car or a train or other vehicle.
Lady Tsunade, how'd he get *past* you. Not passed you.
Past. As he walked past John. That is in the past.
Passed. I passed him in the hallway. John passed the football.
It's a little confusing if you don't know when to use it, but those are examples.
Basically, passed is an action word. There was no action in Sakura's question.
Past – relates to location
The word past locates something in time, and sometimes in space. It can be
used as an adjective, noun, or adverb.
“Past” as an adjective
The first definition which the OED gives for past as an adjective is “Gone by in time; elapsed; done with; over.” For example:
“The days for mourning are now past.”
When attributed to a group of people, past can also mean “Having served one’s term of office; former.” (OED)
“All past presidents of the United States were male.”
And in grammar, we have more examples of past being used as an adjective, such as in “past tense” and “past participle”.
“Past” as a noun
The main meaning for the noun form of past, given by the OED, is “The time that has gone by; a time, or all of the time, before the present.”
“In the past, standards were higher.”
“We cannot live in the past.”
“Past” as a preposition
As a preposition, past can mean: “Beyond in time; after; beyond the age for or time of; (in stating the time of day) so many minutes, or a quarter or half of an hour, after a particular hour.” (OED)
“It is almost half past five.”
It can also be used for location: “Beyond in place; further on than; at or on the further side of; to a point beyond.” (OED)
“My house is the one just past the turning.”
“Past” as an adverb
The first meaning the OED cites for past being used as an adverb is “So as to pass or go by; by.” For example:
“The ball sped past the goalkeeper.”
Passed – a verb in the past tense
Passed is the past participle of the verb “to pass”. It can be an intransitive verb (one which doesn’t require an object) or a transitive verb (one which requires both a subject and one or more objects).
“To pass” means “To proceed, move forward, depart; to cause to do this.” (OED) This can refer to movement forwards in time, in space, or in life (such as “to pass an examination”).
“The weeks passed quickly.” (Intransitive: subject “the weeks” and no object).
“I passed all my exams!” (Transitive: subject “I” and object “my exams”.)
“He passed the ball well during the match earlier.” (Transitive: subject “He” and object “the ball”.)
When do “past” and “passed” get confused?
Often, writers muddle the words past and passed in sentences such as:
“The heroes passed a village on their way towards the mountains.”
It’s common to see this written as:
“The heroes past a village on their way towards the mountains.”
But the word should be passed, as (in this sentence) it’s the past participle of the verb “to pass”. An easy way to tell is to rewrite the sentence in the present tense, as though you’re describing something which is happening currently:
“The heroes pass a village on their way towards the mountains.”
or “The heroes are passing a village on their way towards the mountains.”
However, if you wrote:
“The heroes walked past a village on their way towards the mountains.”
It’s correct to use past. The verb in this sentence is “walked”, and the “past” is acting as an adverb.
Unusual uses of the word “passed”
Most of the time, passed is a verb, as described above. There are a few occasions when it can be used as a noun or an adjective, though. For example:
“Don’t speak ill of the passed.” (noun)
- This comes from the phrase “passed-away”.
“A passed pawn” (adjective)
- Term used in chess.
“A passed ball” (adjective)
- Term used in baseball.
“A passed midshipman/fireman/surgeon” (adjective)
- Someone who has passed a period of instruction and qualified through examination – apparently this usage arose in the navy.

I've to say it's an excellent book! First the Sakura fight amazed me and then this last chapter give us an awesome cliffhanger. You know what kind of things are able to captivate someone into a story.
I really felt sorry for Naruto... hearing his love dying from Madara's mouth must have been extremely hard. Can't wait to read Book III.
Excellent job :D
