Team 7 is taking a walk to a canyon as the members are starting to do a mission.

"Well, team, it looks like our mission is to guard a female Gebler soldier known as Elhaym Van Houten," Kakashi gives a short statement of the mission. "Or you can call her Elly for short."

"Elly..." Sakura said with her arms crossed and expressions of scorn and disdain. "Hmph!"

"Hey, Sakura, what's wrong with you?" Naruto looks bothered by this impression she's making. "When every time the name 'Elly' comes up, you always look angry."

"It might sound like she has a grudge against that woman or something," Sasuke said casually. Ever since he went back to fight for the Leaf against Madara, he once returned to his former team, bringing rebirth to Team 7. After the events of the Fourth Great Ninja War, he went back into going missions with them.

The team also has Yamato and Sai coming along because ever since his return, they went on this mission as a way to get to know them.

"Yeah, that's it," the latter agreed. "Also, she might think about getting revenge on her."

"I wonder what's Sakura's beef with that woman," the former has a question mark on his head about the topic.

"Don't you think I was about to say that?" the blond boy said with disdain.

"I thought about it first, loser," his rival retorted.

"Why, you...!"

Their argument is cut short when they a fight between two mechas. One is a dark mecha, and the other is a pink mecha. Not only that, but there are other mechas watching over the fight, and siding with the latter mecha.

"What the...?" Naruto is baffled at the sight of the fight.

If I'm not mistaken, the one who is piloting the pink mecha might be Elly, and if that's the case... Kakashi thought calmly of the pink mecha, then focuses on Sakura, who is looking angry with suspicions in her mind.

"That voice?! Elly? Elly, is that you?!" asked the manly voice from the dark mecha.

"Fei... What're you doing? You shouldn't be here!" exclaimed a feminine voice from the pink mecha.

Hearing that voice just made Sakura looking angry as a cross popping vein appeared on her forehead and fiery eyes. Her suspicions on who is piloting the mecha is confirmed and started to run to the battlefield with an angry expression on her face.

"Hey, Sakura, where are you going?!" Naruto asked.

"Just let her go, Naruto. If she's planning to fight the pilot of that pink mecha by herself, let her do it," Sasuke stated, then points out on the other mechas. "Besides, we got pressing matters to attend to."

"That's right, so we pick our opponents," Kakashi added as some kind of small droids are to be shown from the pink mecha.

"Wow! Did you see that?!" Broyer asked.

"Those were Aerods!" Renk replied.

"Aerods?" Vance asked.

"Animum Ether Response-Offensive Drones... Commonly known as Aerods... Within Gebler, there are only a handful of people capable of using them... From what I hear, it should only be people from the Elements Class," Helmholz explained.

"B-but isn't it like a side effect of the 'Drive'? It's no big deal, right...?" Stratski looks confused.

"...No, the Drive can only draw upon the potential that already exists in her. You're looking at... the real thing boys!" Renk contradicted.

The team just heard on what they have to say.

"Well, here's a good advice for you boys. In case they tried to use the 'Drive', be careful," Kakashi instructed.

"Right!" Naruto, Sasuke, Yamato, and Sai agreed.

"Let's go kick some Gebler butt."


In the meantime, Sakura is still running to the canyon, hoping to reach to her target of revenge. While the two mechas are fighting, a conversation.

"Elly, snap out of it!" Fei begged. "Your emotions are being controlled by the drug!"

"This is my true nature! There is no other!" Elly retorted.

Her next opponent jumped up so high that a fist is formed on her right hand.

"I DON'T CARE!" Sakura screamed and sends her most powerful punch on the pink mecha that it is sent flying on the walls of the canyon.

"What the...?!" Renk looks baffled at this sight on what just happened.

"Renk, look over there!" Helmholz pointed at the sight of Naruto, Sasuke, Kakashi, Yamato, and Sai.

"I don't believe it. It must be the copy ninja, Kakashi Hatake."

Once the drugged Gebler soldier recovers from the hit, she immediately take notices on Sakura.

"Sakura? Is that you?"

"That's right, Elly, and I'm about to get my revenge on you!" was the reply with resolve, then pointed a finger at the mecha itself. "If you're so powerful when you used the 'Drive' on yourself, get out of that giant tin can of yours and face me in person!"

"If that's what you want, then I'll come out."

The pink mecha opened and a woman comes out. It's not just any woman, it's the woman that Team 7 is being assigned to keep watch on. Not only that, but also the same woman that Sakura has a vendetta on.

No doubt about it, she looked at her opponent from head to toe. Her hair is red and long, and is wearing some kind of uniform. It consisted of a white top, brown pantyhose, and white light boots. Lastly, she looked at her face which is all aggressive, not to mention it's all zombie-like. That's you, Elly.

"Now, let's split up and take down her squad!" Kakashi cried.

Nodding at this request, Naruto has thrown lots of kunais with explosive tags that it exploded and formed large amounts of smoke. With it, he and the others successfully drive the other mechas away in order to deal with them while Sakura fights the drugged Elly on her own.
