Disclamer: No, I do not own Naruto, thank you for asking.

Summary: When a clue links a series of crime together, it puts both the criminals and the agents into danger. [NejixTenten][ShikamaruxIno] [SasukexSakura] and maybe a little of [KibaxHinata] if I feel like it.


"Six crimes in a row. Six crimes in 3 days. That means 2 crimes a day on average, ranging from robbery to arson to murder. And you are telling me that even our best agents were not able to find any leads as to who did this? Are you trying to make me a laughingstock of the entire city? Who are we kidding, six crimes in three days! We have proof that they're all done by the same people too!" he roared. Orochimaru has been yelling for ten minutes now, and didn't show any signs of stopping anytime soon. "And now you are telling me that four mere criminals knocked out our whole investigation squad? I'm telling both of you, if your squads combined can't catch those who are responsible for the series of bad things, your jobs are on the line. I'm giving you seven days. Out of my office, now!" Orochimaru turned red from yelling so much.

Hyuuga Neji and Nara Shikamaru walked out of Orochimaru's office frowning. Both of them, being the leaders of two of the best police squads in Hong Kong, were deeply humiliated, perhaps even scarred for life.

"Bad things indeed." scoffed Hyuuga Neji.

Shikamaru mused, "Seven days or we're fired... he drives a hard bargain. My squad... four people. Your squad... four people. We'll also need the dogs... and their trainer and handler, Kiba... one person. And how about that new guy? The one that came from Japan? We'll need his help too, I heard he was pretty smart... so all together we'll have a team of 10 people, plus two dogs. I don't think the baddies could knock us all out. I mean, yah, the investigation squad only has three people!"

"He's holding the coffee incident against us. You know, when you 'accidently' filled the coffee pot with rat droppings. For an April Fool's joke in May." complained Neji.

"It was funny, you have to admit it. The hospital staff got a nice laugh over it as well. So, we better tell our 'team' about our little mission. Not to mention grovel for Kiba's help." Shikamaru replied.

"Don't forget we actually have to tell the new guy that he's in on it"


Far away, in a luxurious hotel room, the criminals toasted each other's success.

"Good luck to those poor slobs who are trying to catch us."

"Yes, they'll need it."

"Is everything ready for the next mission?"

"Not so loudly please, anyone could have heard that."

"Yes, everything is ready."

"Good, I've contacted our weapons source too."

"What are we going for?"

"The police chief's throat."

"Haha... funny one. No, seriously."

"Seriously. Assasination."

"Are we really up for it?"

"I hope so..."

"Of course we are up for it!"

"Without a doubt."

"We should be careful though."

"Oh, stop worrying."

"Those police are too stupid to find us out."

"I've been doing some research, the people who will probably be coming after us... they're all men."


"I could only find the name of the captains of the squad."

"And they are...?"

"Hyuuga Neji and Nara Shikamaru."

"Again; poor slobs."

"Well, if they get in our way, we will have to feel sorry for them indeed."

Their laughter could be heard in the hallway.


Nara Shikamaru poked his head inside Neji's office.

"I've asked Kiba and the new guy, Sasuke, for their assistance on this case, and both of them has agreed to help. We're going to be hitting the bar soon, join in?"

Neji looked up from his computer screen and grunted.

"I take that as a yes?"

"Is your whole squad going?"

"No, just me."

"Alright, I'll be out in five. Wait outside the station."


Two pairs of eyes watched the entrance of the police station from the 3rd floor of a nearby building.


End of first chapter.

A/N: Yay! New story! Hopefully, it will go better than all of my others... I mean, this chapter has 500 or so words! Let's marvel at that fact...
