Six days ago at the Hokage's tower,
"You requested to see us Hokage-sama?" asked Neji, entering the room along with Sasuke, Shikamaru and Naruto besides him.
"Yes, you four betrayed and left this country 3 years ago, without giving any explanations for your actions, I wish to know why you left and why do you think you should be accepted into the village once again….?" said Tsunade-sama firmly.
"Hokage-sama I wish we could tell you the reason we left, but the only thing we can say is that we came back to where our hearts belong, to where we were born and raised. And we have no longer any intension of betraying this country anymore." replied Shikamaru.
Naruto added, "We knew it was wrong, and we are very sorry about it, we hope for forgiveness, of you and the people of the village, and will do anything to repay you any way we can."
Sasuke than spoke, "But if you do not let us stay, we will understand… even if you wish for us to leave right away we will, however we just want you to give us one chance."
The Hokage gave a small smirk to her desk, then said "You have one month to prove that you are reliable and that we can trust you guys, for this you will have to help out in the Chunnin exams, let Sakura tell you about it later, you are dismissed."
"I can't believe we are doing this… it's so troublesome…" said Shikamaru walking to the final round of the Chunnin exams as he, Naruto, Neji and Sasuke walked into the stadium for the first time in a while.
"It's not as bad as it looks, we get to watch kids fight, and maybe Naruto can learn something new…" Sasuke commented and everyone started to laugh while Naruto didn't get it at all.
"Hey guys!" they heard Ino yell and looked to see where she was.
They found her, Sakura and Hinata sitting right next to the Hokage.
"Come over here!" now yelled Sakura pointing to some available sits next to them.
"Guess we don't have a choice" Shikamaru responded as they all walked right next to them.
Tenten and Meiling had already gotten the scroll from Temari, and where now tracking down Huka Iroshi in the village of Sakuha. However, when they had found him, he seemed to be waiting for them with Ninja from the sound country. They were about 300 ninja of them to their surprise.
The ANBU girls had fought already and killed some of the ninja but it was still too much since their level of fighting was ANBU also.
Tenten thought it would be better to retreat a little until she or Meiling came up with a plan. She started to think really hard and the only thing that came to her mind was for her to use her earth control.
"This is being harder than what I thought, we can't take them, and they're just too many. I will need you to go to Konoha fast and bring back enforcements. Got it Mei-chan?" said Tenten who had a worry face look on her looking up to the sky from the tree branch she was sitting on avoiding the look that she would get from Meiling.
"But wouldn't it be too risky? I mean if we can't take them on, how can you while I go back to Konoha? You are already at your limits and…?" Meiling was cut off from speaking and her eyes widen.
"You are not going to use it are you?" she asked with a concerned look on her face as she saw Tenten unwrapping the bandages that cover her arms and hands.
"I've got no choice Mei. If I don't do it, it will be the end for me and you…This is an order for you to fallow," Tenten jumped off of the tree before Meiling could protest.
Meiling having no other choice, did what she was told and ran to Konoha as fast as she could, wishing her friend luck.
Huka Iroshi was waiting patiently for the arrival of the two kunochi, but to his surprise he only saw the burnet girl. Smirking he asked, "Where is your friend? I thought Konoha ninja were loyal, but now I see they are the same as other people."
Expecting to see her angered eyes, his eyes widen as she smirked back at him and said, "You are wrong, we are very loyal, I wanted to try this out for a while now, but I never found the right occasion, you should feel special to see this."
Tenten place her arms above her head and closed her eyes, concentrating on her chakra into her hands.
Iroshi, taking this as an offence to him, ordered the ninja to attack her while she had her eyes closed.
"TO SLOW" Tenten yelled placing her hands on the ground making and amount of rocks to appear up in the sky and started hitting the ninja making a sand cloud from earth.
Meiling kept on running, when she saw the ground shaking, then she looked back to see a sand cloud. Frowning at what her eyes were seeing she kept on going to Konoha, but now at full speed. She remembered what Tenten had told her before they arrive to the hidden village of sand to met Temari there.
00000000000000000000000000000000000 FLASH BACK 00000000000000000000000000000000000
"So Tenten, how has everything been? I heard that Neji is back along with the others…" Meiling said trying to start a conversation while heading to the sand village.
Meiling knew everything about Tenten's life and Tenten knew everything about Meiling's life. They were like sisters.
"Everything is practically the same, but Mei, there is something in me changing, I know that this might sound really crazy but I know I can trust you so I can tell you that I'm one of the chosen ones from the legend that your mom used to tell us all the time remember." Tenten answered without any emotion shown on her face. She knew she could trust her anything and even her life so Tenten didn't thought about
Meiling with her eyes widen looked at Tenten, but than her eyes softened and smile as they continue running since Meiling knew that Tenten didn't really want to talk about it.
00000000000000000000000000000000 End of Flash Back00000000000000000000000000000000000
"Please be safe…" where Meiling's last words before she kept running back to Konoha.
Back to Tenten
"Look at yourself, (laughter) you are running out of energy," Huka Iroshi said in laughter, watching as Tenten kept fighting.
Tenten glared at him elevating rocks and started throwing them telepathically as it were her own weapons. She had now killed most of the ninja but there was still about 97 ninja left or so she thought.
What am I going to do… I can't keep healing myself, its taking too much chakra of me. .. Tenten thought.
"Come on little girl I don't have much time!" he yelled.
I could always make an explosion… she keep thinking on what were her best options.
Meanwhile Meiling could see the entrance of Konoha and teleported herself to the stadium because she knew that today where the chunnin exams. As she was there, she looked to find the Hokage, when she found Tsunade-sama, she teleported herself in front of the Hokage.
Tsunade notice that it was Meiling and wondered where was Tenten. Meiling asked for permission to speak and she got it.
"Tsunade-sama, Panda and I ran into trouble, the man we were to kill was expecting us with at least more than 200 ninja from the sound. They're level is ANBU, she and I killed most of them but were running out of chakra, as an order she told me to come back and get enforcements while she stayed back and fought." She reported.
"WHAT! Sakura, Ino, Hinata, Neji, Shikamaru, Sasuke and Naruto come here!" yelled the Hokage.
Hearing they're names, they all teleported right in front of her.
"I need you to fallow Ruby and help Panda and her. They were send on a mission but now need help to fight, this is a S-rank got it. You have to bring Panda back alive, Sakura you must heal her, but none of you can see who she is as she is ANBU." Tsunade ordered.
Ruby (Meiling) whispered to the Hokage's ear "But Hokage-sama you know we can't send them-"
"I know but the others are busy at the moment." It was her only reply.
Ruby (Meiling) sighed than said "We got to go now, try and keep up with me; we don't have much time left."
And so they all left following Meiling to where Tenten was fighting.
Tenten almost out of energy and her chakra wasn't going to last more than an hour and Konoha was at least 2 hours away. She had to make a decision and quick.
Think Tenten… think… she thought while fighting 2 ninja with her katana. I know what to do… just hope they get here soon enough.
Tenten jumped into a tree and made some hand signs then placed her hands on the trunk and yelled "Earth shadow clone jutsu."
As more clones started to appear, she made other hand signs and jumped down to the ground and placed her hands on it, suddenly a cloud of sand started to appear.
This will blind them for a little bit while I strike and kill them…
And so she did, her clones movements were fast and so were hers, yells could be heard from the ninja. As the sand cloud started to fall down, all of her clones where on trees as if satisfied with their accomplishment. When it was completely gone, the only ones reaming were Tenten, Huka Iroshi, and now 20 ninja.
Tenten started to pant heavily, the oxygen could not get into her lungs, her vision becoming blurry every time she tried to focus her sight to Huka.
Huka, with a smirk on his face started to laugh and then said, "You really are a strong girl… to bad you'll die… but take it as a favor because soon the one you love will be-" he was cut off when a kunai pierced his heart.
Tenten looked back to see if there were more ninja left to fight, but her eyes widen when she saw a familiar pair of pearl eyes set upon the man who he just had killed. What was he and the others doing there with Meiling.
"Panda!!" Ruby (Meiling) yelled as she jumped down to see her. "I'm so proud of you… now let me deal with them… and you're gonna pay for not leaving me enough."
Panda (Tenten) just smirked but with a deadly voice said "Go ahead all yours. But we have to talk later"
Ruby just smirked and nodded, then made some hand signs and a fire surrounded the ninja, as the flames started to increase she said "Those who burn, will never return!"
All of the sound ninja started to burn, yells and cries could be heard, but Ruby and Panda didn't mind at all, they had always done this.
In Ino's, Sakura's and Hinata's eyes could be seen horror and fear. They could not believe that the two ANBU girls that where about their age would do such horrible things while the boys thought the same. Panda caught the sight of this but didn't mind since she knew that the girls didn't know who she was, than her vision became even blurrier.
Ruby noticed this and said, "The girl with the pink hair can heal you."
"No need I just need to sleep… you don't mind carrying me back do you?" Tenten (Panda) asked putting her puppy eyes.
"Of course not" said Meiling (Ruby), she turned around and Tenten placed herself on her back.
Meiling (Ruby) jumped into the tree branch were Ino, Sakura and Hinata were, and then said "Sorry to have you run all the way here for nothing." Than disappear into the forest.
Ino with wide eyes to what she had witnessed spoke "I will never become and ANBU. I'll just stay junnin for the rest of my life."
Sakura and Hinata nodded in agreement.
"Hey Sakura, Hinata, Ino! Let's go or we will miss the chunnin exams!" Naruto yelled at them since they were still frozen from the shock.
Shaking everything away, they all ran back to Konoha.
Tsunade and Shizune where waiting at the gates for Meiling and the others to came back but just spotted Meiling with Tenten on her back.
Shizune ran to them and said "Where are the others?"
Meiling replied "the little miss here (pointing at Tenten) wanted to come back here back as quick as possible since you know how Ino and the others get if they see her at this state."
"Right, I'll heal you in no time" Shizune said as she placed her hands on top of Tenten's head and green chakara started to heal her body, in less than 10 minutes she was done.
"Alright then Tenten, you and Meiling may go home for some time now, the others will arrive shortly, you guys can take the day off and tomorrow we will discuss the mission. Dismissed" Tsunade said.
"Arigato" and the 2 female ninja were gone.
