So here's the first chapter of my newest Hida/Hina multi-chapter story. I had this idea going on in my head for awhile and decided to get off my ass and write it. Hope you like it.

Descent Into Darkness

Chapter 1

"So...that's the little fuckwit that we have to capture? Hardly seems like a challenge."

"Don't underestimate him. He is the Nine-Tail's Jinchuriki, after all. He'll kill you if you're reckless."

Hidan snorted and glanced at his partner. "Yeah, I'd like to see him try to fucking kill me."

"Even if he can't actually kill you, all he has to do is lop off that empty head of yours," Kakuzu grumbled.

"Are you calling me fucking stupid?" The Jashinist snapped, insulted.

"Hidan, shut up before you give away our position," his partner growled. "We need to wait a few more minutes before we make our move."

Hidan muttered a few obscenities under his breath, mentally thinking that Kakuzu was a moron if he thought that they would be spotted. They were up at least fifty feet, concealing themselves in the trees, slowly stalking their unsuspecting target. He didn't see what the big deal was with that blond kid. Seriously, what kind of fucking ninja wears orange? That, and he seemed like an oblivious idiot who hadn't shut up once since he and Kakuzu had found him thirty minutes ago. The Jinchuriki was busy yapping to a girl who had accompanied him.

Hidan more interested in the girl than their actual target. She was beautiful, wearing a lavender and cream-colored jacket that was too big for her petite frame. Her long indigo hair went all the way down to her waist, and she had the prettiest eyes that Hidan had ever seen. They were a pale lilac color, much lighter than his own violet eyes. Even from their distance, he could see the light blush on her face as the Jinchuriki continued to talk about something stupid. Is he really talking about fucking ramen?

Down below on the ground, Naruto and Hinata continued their way down the path, unaware of the two men silently stalking them in the trees.

"And then after the tenth bowl of ramen, Chouji finally gave up and I won the ramen-eating contest we were having," Naruto bragged. "No one can out-eat me when it comes to ramen. Not even Chouji."

Hinata nodded with a small smile on her face. "Y-You are the b-best when it comes to eating ramen, N-Naruto-kun..." She hated herself for stuttering, though Naruto didn't seem to be bothered by it. Either that or he just didn't notice.

"But anyway, even after I won, Sakura-chan still wasn't impressed. I mean, I don't get why she wouldn't be. What's more awesome than being able to eat that much ramen in one sitting?" Naruto thought for a moment. "Well, I'm sure I'll find a way to get her to admit that she likes me. I'll bet she's just worried about ruining our friendship."

Hinata didn't have the heart to tell him that Sakura was still in love with Sasuke, though it was pretty obvious. Even though it had been four years, Sakura's feelings for Sasuke hadn't dissipated. Despite being a wanted S-Rank criminal, deep down, Sakura had a glimmer of hope that Sasuke would return someday. Every day the likelihood of that seemed to lessen.

"But I'm positive that after I get her to go out with me on a date with me, she's sure to proclaim her love for me," Naruto said cheerfully, oblivious to Hinata's slightly dejected expression. "What do you think I should do to get her to go out with me?"

"Um, I-I'm not r-really good at giving th-this kind of a-advice," Hinata murmured timidly. "Sorry, N-Naruto-kun."

Naruto waved a hand dismissively. "Eh, it's not a big deal. I'll figure something out." He looked around the area as they continued down the path. "So, how much longer until we get to that village anyway?"

"A-About an hour or s-so," she replied softly. "I-It shouldn't t-take us long."

"That's good. I want to get back to the village so that I can find Sakura-chan and go talk to her," he said. "Besides, this mission is too easy for us. I don't know why Granny sent us for something stupid like picking up a dumb envelope from another village. What's so important about it anyway?"

"I-It's classified information that Tsunade-Sama said was very important," Hinata reminded him. "She w-wanted to make sure n-no one would b-be able to steal it on our way b-back."

Naruto rubbed the back of his neck. "Oh, yeah... Well, at least she knows that we'll be able to do this mission without a problem, I guess. Still, I was hoping for something a bit more exciting."

"I-I'm sorry," the girl said softly, looking away. He'd be a lot happier if he had been sent with Sakura instead of me...

"It's not your fault. You got stuck coming with me," he replied with a laugh. "Besides, you're easier to get along with than Sai. Or Kiba. Or...what's your other teammate's name?"

"Shino." Hinata was surprised that he still had trouble remembering the bug ninja's name, even though they had known each other for years.

"Oh, yeah, that's right," Naruto mused.

The two walked in silence for the next few minutes, not realizing that the excitement that Naruto had been hoping for was about to happen.

"When can we attack them?" Hidan glanced at his partner, then back down at the unsuspecting pair. "We've moved far enough away from their fucking village."

"We'll do it in a minute," Kakuzu answered. "Just remember; don't kill the Jinchuriki. We need to bring him back alive at all costs."

Hidan smirked, his gaze fixed on Hinata. "And what about the girl?"

"Do as you please with her," the stitched man replied. "Just keep the Nine-Tails kid alive. We'll knock him out and bring him back to the base."

"Sounds good to me," the Jashinist said with a sadistic grin. "Let's do this shit."

They leapt down from the tree, alerting Naruto and Hinata as they landed twenty feet away from them, blocking their path.

"Sorry, but this is the end of your mission," Kakuzu told them.

Naruto frowned at them, moving closer to Hinata. "Who the hell are you guys?"

"Sorry, but explaining it to you would be a fucking waste," Hidan scoffed. "Now, we can either do this the easy way or we can do this the fucking hard way. Your choice."

"What do you guys want exactly?" The blond narrowed his eyes.

Instead of answering the question, Hidan looked his partner. "Want me to take care of the girl and then help you bring this fucker down?"

"You stay the hell away from her," Naruto hissed, shoving Hinata protectively behind him.

"Why? She'd be the perfect for what I need," the silver-haired man said with a devious grin as he pulled his scythe from his back. "She's just so cute, and I think Jashin-Sama would be pleased to have a sacrifice like her."

Hinata's eyes went wide. "S-Sacrifice?"

"What do you mean by sacrifice?" Naruto gaped at the Jashinist as if he had two heads.

"Exactly what it sounds like, dumbass." Hidan rolled his eyes. "You're even stupider than you look. And you looked pretty fucking stupid to begin with."

"Shut up," the Jinchuriki snapped. "I won't let you get near her."

Hidan smirked. "I dare you to try to fucking stop me."

"Oh, I will," Naruto shot back, before glancing over his shoulder at Hinata.

Kakuzu crossed his arms over his chest. "You'd be wise to take the easy way out, kid. Maybe I'll convince my idiot partner here to spare your friend if you agree to come with us without a fight."

"Fuck that!" Hidan glowered at the stitched man. "I want that girl. And who the fuck are you calling an idiot? Besides, we can take this guy down without a problem. Hell, you might not even need my help."

"Leave her alone!" Naruto snapped. "I swear, if you touch her-"

"You'll what?" The silver-haired man challenged, holding his scythe in one hand. "Kill me? Good fucking luck with that one."

The blond glared at him. "What do you want with me anyway?"

"You possess the Nine-Tails, correct?" Kakuzu stared at him with his strange eyes.

"Yeah," Naruto admitted without hesitation. "I'm assuming that you want to take control of him, right?"

Hidan couldn't help but laugh. "Now you're getting it. And I was beginning to think you were a complete fucking dumbass."

"It would be wise to not put up a fight," Kakuzu told the fuming blond. "Although, I can tell that you won't be so willing."

"Damn right I won't," he snapped.

"Fine by me." Hidan lunged forward and threw his scythe at them, the blades glimmering with deadly intent.

Naruto quickly scooped Hinata up and jumped away, narrowly missing the attack. He landed several feet away, holding Hinata tightly in his arms as he glared at them.

"N-Naruto-kun," Hinata said softly, her eyes fearful.

"Don't worry, Hinata," he told her. "I'll figure something out."

His eyes were fixed on the enemy before them. That crazy silver-haired guy was pulling his scythe back, which was connected to a cable hidden under his cloak. His partner had not moved a muscle, though he was waiting expectantly.

"C'mon, kid. You might as well just fucking give up now. We were told to bring you back alive. That doesn't mean that we won't cut your arms and legs in the process. Because trust me, I'll take great pleasure in chopping everything off," Hidan said sadistically.

"Screw you," Naruto shot back, growing angrier by the second.

"I would love to screw her," he informed him, though his gaze was fixed on the trembling girl. "Fuck, maybe I'll get to if everything works out the way it's supposed to."

The blond was fuming by now, and held Hinata even tighter against him, refusing to put her down. "You'll stay the hell away from her or I'll rip you apart!"

"Fucking try it! I dare you," Hidan hissed, scythe ready in his hand again. "By the time I'm done with you, you'll be begging me to fucking kill you."

"Why you-"

Kakuzu sighed. "Both of you are getting on my nerves. Let's just get on with it so that I can go collect my next bounty already. Time is money."

"You and your fucking money," Hidan snarled, obviously annoyed. "No, I'm finally going to have some fun. If you don't like it, then go suck a dick or something."

Hinata surprised Naruto by looking up at him calmly. "Naruto-kun, please put me down."

"But-"

"You can't fight them both while protect me at the same time," she pointed out, the stutter in her voice gone for the moment. "We'll take them on together."

"Hinata, they're too strong," Naruto tried to tell her.

The girl sighed. "We don't have a choice. If they attack you at the same time, you may be overpowered. At least let me deal with one while you handle the other guy. What else can we do?"

"She's right, you know," Hidan pointed out, enjoying the mental battle that the stupid blond kid seemed to be having. "You don't stand a chance against the two of us at the same fucking time. Hell, you don't even stand a chance against just one of us. But you won't get your ass kicked quite as fast."

Naruto reluctantly put Hinata down, though he still looked unsure. "Hinata, I don't want you to get hurt-"

"And I don't want them to take you away," she said, almost pleading him with her eyes. "If they get the Nine-Tails, there's no telling what will happen."

"Alright, enough talk." Kakuzu was suddenly beside Naruto and gave him a sharp kick in the side, sending him into a tree.

"Naruto-kun!" Hinata cried out.

Wincing, Naruto sat up on the ground. "Hinata, run!"

Turning around, Hinata watched as the silver-haired man began to make his way towards her, the scythe looking deadly in his grasp. Kakuzu was already upon Naruto, delivering another powerful kick to the blond. However, Naruto managed to move out of the way and counter with a Rasengan. Unfortunately for him, Kakuzu was faster than he thought, and the attack was met with only air.

Deciding that it would be smart to separate the two Akatsuki members, Hinata took off down the path. Naruto would only have to worry about fighting that masked guy at the moment while she kept the other one busy.

"Oh, want me to chase you? I can tell that you'll be fun." Hidan went after her, leaving behind a worried Naruto.

"Pay attention, kid." Kakuzu punched him in the stomach while he was momentarily distracted.

"Bastard..." Naruto retaliated with his own punch, sending the masked man flying backwards. Hinata, please hang in there. Just for a little while.

Hinata continued her way down the path, then jumped up into the trees, hoping to put some distance between herself and her pursuer. No such luck, as Hidan was quickly catching up. He was fast, even while carrying that heavy-looking scythe, which he had slung across his back for the time being. She leapt through the trees, moving rapidly.

"There's no use running from me," he called after her, though he looked amused.

Glancing over her shoulder, she sped up, moving as fast as she could as she ran and jumped through the thickening forest. I really hope Naruto-kun is okay up against that masked man...

The girl was fast, Hidan had to give her that much credit. She was small and agile, which worked in her favor as she tried to outrun him. It was a cute attempt, but in the end, he would catch up to her. He would make damn sure of it.

Hinata fearfully looked over her shoulder again, dismayed to see that he was gaining on her. Oh, no... He's catching up... What should I do? With a quick thought, Hinata whirled around to face him, but continued to jump and flip backward away from him. She fired several chakra needles at him, hoping to at least slow him down.

"Ow! What the fuck is that?" Hidan growled, closing one of his eyes as he felt the barrage of needles pierce his skin. "That shit hurts!"

It seemed to slow him down a little, and he put up one arm to help try to block the attack. He hissed as the attack continued to jab into him mercilessly. She controls chakra pretty well. But let's see what she can really fucking do... Hidan took the scythe from his back and swung it at her, letting it fly towards the girl as its cable extended.

Hinata gasped, ceasing her chakra needles by dodging the triple bladed weapon. She cartwheeled out of the way, the scythe imbedding itself into the tree only inches from her. That was close...

"Not bad." Hidan was about fifteen feet away from her, and he yanked the cable to free his weapon. "Not fucking bad at all."

Hinata stood frozen in her spot, unsure of what to do next. Should she launch another attack? Or should she try to run? Both options seemed to have their flaws. If she tried to fight him, she knew that she didn't stand a chance. Not only was he much bigger and stronger than her, he was part of the Akatsuki. She would probably be killed in a matter of seconds if she wasn't careful. But running away wouldn't do much good either, since he was faster than her and had gained on her in almost no time.

"Don't worry. I promise not to make you suffer too much," Hidan told her, a grin spreading across his handsome face. "Maybe I'll even get to fuck you before I do the ritual."

Her moonlight eyes went wide. "R-Ritual?"

"Well, I did say I was going to sacrifice you to my god, Jashin-Sama. You don't happen to be a virgin, are you? Because virgins are the fucking best when it comes to that shit. I'm willing to bet my left nut that you're a fucking virgin. Am I right?" He smirked when she looked away, a slight blush on her face as she refused to answer his question. "Yeah, I can tell that you are. Must be my lucky day." He lunged towards her, catching her off guard at his sudden movement.

Panicked, Hinata turned to run away once again, only to feel a pair of strong arms wrap around her waist. She was pulled against his muscular chest, and her heart skipped a beat.

"Gotcha," he whispered into her ear.

Cliffhanger! Please don't kill me...I'm too young to die. Next chapter will be out within a week.
