A Flowers Fragrance

---------------------------

Chapter One:

"U-uchiha-san!" a small girl with lavender hair said happily running her arms out and hands together, "Uchiha-san! L-look what I f-found!" opening her clasped hands she revealed a small bluish-lavender flower.

A hand was placed on the small girls head, "A Forget-Me-Not." The voice stated.

The girl stared at the person of whom the voice had come from still, "I-isn't it p-pretty?" she stuttered, the voice then spoke, "Hyuga-san---"

--------------Hinata----------------

Hinata woke up to her alarm clock; she let out a groan and rolled over covering her head with the covers, "Five more minutes…" she said to herself.

A few minutes passed before Hinata realized that she was supposed to get up, "O-oh no!" Hinata hastily got dressed and ate breakfast, turning the corner she almost bumped into someone, but quickly moved to avoid the impact, "I-I'm sorry Neji nii-san." She said panting lightly.

"Hinata-samma, you might want to slow down or you'll end up hurting yourself." He said in a blunt tone of voice, not that he was trying to mean anything by the tone of his voice, it was just a habit that he had come across through out his life.

"Y-Yes! I-I'll be more c-careful next time Neji nii-san!" with that Hinata took off running to the training grounds of which Shino and Kiba were found standing there.

----------Kiba, Shino, and Hinata----------

"I'm telling you it was seven feet long!" Kiba argued.

"Sure…" Shino replied in a non-chalant manner fixing his shaded glasses.

"You don't believe me do you?" Kiba complained, while Shino just remained silent, of which at that time Hinata arrived.

"D-don't fight…I-I mean we-we are a team…" Hinata said timidly walking over to her teammates.

"Hey you're late Hinata." Kiba said looking at her.

"Like you're one to talk…" Shino said rolling his eyes from underneath his glasses. Kiba almost didn't notice this…almost….

"What? Did you just roll your eyes at me?" Shino sighed in annoyance from having to listen to Kiba's bickering.

"Um…K-Kiba-kun…" Hinata said quietly looking at the ground, "Are…are you feeling alright?..." she asked noticing their canine obsessed team member being a lot more…louder than usual.

"NO!" he snapped loudly, making Hinata wince, "I'm not alright!" Kiba was silent his arms now crossed, he seemed to be waiting for something.

There was a brief silence as both Shino and Hinata stood there staring at Kiba, it wasn't till several minutes later did Hinata noticed Kiba was waiting for someone to ask 'why' so she did, seeing as how Shino wouldn't since he preferred Kiba staying quiet, "Um…W-why are you upset K-kiba-kun?" Hinata asked in her usual small tone.

"Because! Kurenai-sensei decided to cancel our mission that we were supposed to go on today! And I was really looking forward to it to!" Kiba stomped his foot in anger, while Akamaru whom had doubled in size from the Chuunin exams barked in agreement with the Inuzuka.

"W-well…W-we could always t-train…i-if you want…" Hinata stated now looking up at Shino and Kiba.

"Fine, let's train." Kiba said, his aggravation still clearly showing.

-----------Itachi and Kisame--------------

Itachi sat by a tree his arms crossed and eyes closed. He seemed to be in a rather bad mood, knowing not to bother him, his so called 'partner' Kisame sat across from him and stared.

"You know Itachi…" Kisame began slowly, choosing his word carefully.

"What?" Itachi asked in the, I-will-kill-you-if-you-say-another-word-you-worthless-scum-so-leave-me-alone, tone of voice that he strictly reserved for Kisame when he thought he was being annoying or wanted him to shut the hell up.

"Ah…Nevermind…" Kisame sighed; sometimes Itachi's little mood swings could be rather annoying, but the poor shark-like Akatsuki member had grown accustomed to it, though it wasn't like he was about to tell Itachi that it was annoying in the first place.

Itachi's eye twitched noticing Kisame's stare on himself, "What?" Kisame stared at him blankly, "What?" Kisame questioned having no idea what he was doing now to upset the Uchiha.

"You're staring…At me."

Kisame looked towards the sky trying to avert his eyes from Itachi, "Does your whole 'attitude' have anything to do with the fact we're so close to Konoha?"

Itachi opened his eyes and then stood up uncrossing his arms, "No." he replied in a calmer tone. At heart Itachi had no idea why he was feeling so pissed, it could be by the fact he felt like something was nagging at the back of his head, like he'd forgotten something.

Kisame noticed Itachi had stood up, "Ah, then what?" what he really wanted to say was Then what's making you be in such a pissy mood and why the hell do you have to take it out on me you brat? But you wouldn't hear that from Kisame.

Itachi noticed the aggravation in Kisame's voice which annoyed him that he was being so annoyed, "I'm going to scout ahead." With that the Uchiha disappeared in a white smoke.

"…God! Finally! I never thought he'd leave!" Kisame yelled to himself now feeling a little relieved that he didn't have to put up Itachi's bad attitude.

----Kakashi, Kurenai, Gai, Asuma, and Tsunade----

Kurenai, Kakashi, Asuma, and Gai stood in a line side to side in the Hokage's office. Tsunade stared at a piece of paper biting her knuckle in frustration.

There was a long silence no one seemed to talk or more of no one was sure whether they should talk, "Hokage-samma, why were we called here?" Kurenai asked breaking the silence.

Tsunade looked up to Kurenai, now remembering that she had summoned the four Jounin's, "Yes well…We have come across some disturbing information…" she began, the room soon fell into another silence.

"What kind of information Hokage-samma?" Gai asked, motioning for her to continue.

Tsunade set the paper on the desk down, "It seems that the Akatsuki had been spotted in a forest near Konoha." She let out a long sigh, Why's my job so stressful? She asked herself mentally.

There was yet again another silence. All four of them had memories of the Akatsuki, or more specifically, two of them…Itachi Uchiha and Hoshigaki Kisame.

"I would like for you to be on high alert, they were supposedly last spotted on the far eastern side of Konoha, within the forest." Tsunade said.

Kurenai flinched, "Far…eastern? Like the eastern training grounds?" she queried, Tsunade then nodded, "OmigodIhavetogonowmyteamistraingonthefareasternsideofkonohaIneedtomakesurethey'realright!" (Total relapse time: 4 seconds) with that Kurenai was gone in a flash leaving Kakashi, Asuma, Gai, and Tsunade to take a moment and try to translate what she had just said.

Then it hit them, all at once they realized what she was trying to say, Tsunade shot up, "Go Now!" she yelled as the three Jounin's quickly left to assist Kurenai.

Tsunade walked out of the door from her office, "Tsunade-samma, where are you going? You have paperwork to attend to." Shizune stated.

"Three lives are at stake, I'll do the paperwork later! Fill in for me while I'm gone!" Tsunade then hurried off towards the eastern training grounds.

--------Shino, Kiba, and Hinata-------

Shino, Kiba, and Hinata all laid on their backs in the grass staring up at the sky, "Bored…so bored…so very, very, very bo---"

"Would you shut up Kiba." Shino interrupted the Inuzuka in his usual dull tone, but ever he had to admit he himself was bored out of his mind, but Kiba making it more obvious than it already was…just wasn't helping…

"You Shut up Shino!" Kiba shouted not even bothering to look at him.

"…" Shino was silent, which made Kiba mad that he had actual 'shut up' though Shino never really did talk in the first place, "Goddamit Shino!" Kiba yelled aloud making both Hinata and Shino sit up for the sound level of Kiba's voice.

"K-kiba-kun?" Hinata questioned.

"Aaaaahhhh! I can't take it anymore! I'm soooooooo bored!"

"D-do, y-you want to t-train more?" Hinata again questioned.

Before Kiba could say anything Akamaru came out of the bushes whimpering, "Akamaru what's wrong?" Both Kiba and Hinata asked in unison.

Shino fixed his glasses, "Someone's coming." All three of them got into fighting position ready for whoever was coming their way.

------------Itachi-----------

Itachi jumped through the tree's, "People." He said to himself dully sensing others up ahead. He kneeled down on a tree branch hearing voices.

"Hinata, activate your Byakugan and scan the location." A male's voice commanded.

"H-hai." Replied a female's voice.

Byakugan…A Hyuuga, no point in hiding if I'm going to get spotted in a matter of seconds Itachi then came out into the clearing, seeing three 'kids' standing there.

They turned their attention to the figure; red eyes…Sharinghan, as far the trio was concerned there were only two people in the known world with Shainghan, Sasuke Uchiha (which wasn't this guy) and the one who caused the end of the Uchiha clan, Itachi Uchiha.

Itachi noticed the three standing like they were ready to fight. Fight whom? Himself? They would be dead in a matter of seconds, and what was stopping him, no one.
