A/N: Well... final chapter... somewhat emotional... but very touching with a pretty funny ending...
Chapter 42: The End of an Adventure
It was a party… after Setsuna found Ash and Ranma a party erupted on the Going Merry… or was it called the Merry Go… either way it was a party… although at first many were reluctant to hold the party… okay to be honest it was only Kakashi and Sakura because of the mission report… but so many wanted to have one all together… Opal managed to convince them in the end with a jutsu she created that makes her eyes big and sparkly… she's unsure whether to call it the "Puppy Eye Jutsu" or the "Kawaii Jutsu"... the party was going good… it was crazy as many parties go… people were dancing, drinking, talking… mob of angry women beating up the Pervy sage… um… wait that not normal for a party…
"You pervert! I can't bevel you asked me that!" yelled Nami.
"What kind of sick weirdo are you!" yelled Akane.
"There's no way I'm going to be in your book!" yelled Setsuna.
"Your going to pay!" yelled Amber
Ruby also join in the beating… Robin was waiting for the right moment to strike.
Naruto, Hinata, Opal and Artemis were watching this…
"Do you think we should help?" asked Hinata.
"I think we should wait…" said Naruto.
That's when Jiraiya screamed in pain indicating that Robin made her move. When all the angry woman (all complementing Robin) left the crumpled pervert the 4 walked up to him.
"Hey we need to talk about something…" said Naruto, "In private…"
"Okay…" said Jiraiya who recovered quite quickly…
They managed to find a part of the ship that had no one around.
Sometime later during the conversation…
"Are you sure Naruto?" asked Opal.
"Yeah…" said Naruto, "The only I can focus on my training…"
"Okay then…" said Jiraiya.
"Well… I better go tell them…" sighed Naruto.
They all went to where most of the partiers were…
"Hey!" yelled Naruto, "I have an announcement!"
Everyone turned their attention to Naruto…
"What is it?" asked Ash.
"Well… you…. See…" said Naruto, "I decided to start my training trip tomorrow… but…"
"But what?" asked Luffy.
"I'm going to leave my communicator and time key with Opal…" said Naruto.
This surprised most of the senshi… with the exception of Kakashi and Setsuna, the others were surprised as well… but not so much as the senshi.
"Why?" asked Ranma.
"Because I really need to focus on my training…" said Naruto, "It's something I need to do…"
Naruto looked pretty upset… so did Sakura and Kakashi… well with Kakashi it was hard to see with the mask… but judging by his exposed eye… in fact every one from Naruto's seemed to sober up… the other 4 inner senshi remember what Naruto said in Crystal Tokyo about Sasuke… and figured what ever happened had to do with him… before the party could get any more depressing a pirate ship showed up…
"So Straw Hat… you're here this time!" yelled one of the pirates, ironically this was a crew that was scared off by Gaara… however unlike most of the crew the captain was cocky and lost his life… the new captain thought that Gaara was no long there…
"Holy shit! That creepy kid that killed the captain is still there!" yelled a pirate.
"I don't want to die!" yelled the new captain.
The pirates sailed away as fast they could… everyone slowly turned to Gaara.
"You killed someone?" asked Zoro.
"It was nothing…" said Gaara who then smirked, "Isn't this supposed to be party?"
And so the party continued... for hours… until it was time for everyone to leave.
The next day in Naruto's world… all the senshi showed up as well Zatch and Pikachu, as well many of Naruto's friends including the Sand Siblings to say their good byes…
"Ash… you better conquer the battle frontier…" said Naruto.
"I will!" said
"What?" asked Kiba confused.
"Zatch you better become king of the mamodo world…" said Naruto.
"Don't worry…" said Zatch.
"Huh?" said Kankuro.
"Luffy you better become king of the pirates…" said Naruto.
"Of course I will!" said Luffy.
"Is anyone else confused?" asked Ino.
"Ace… kill that Black beard bastard…" said Naruto.
Ace only smirked.
"Ranma… for the love of god… fix your life…" said Naruto.
Ranma only sweatdroped…
"Naruto…" said Sakura, "Don't worry… you will still be able to keep your promise… you will bring him back…"
Naruto only nodded then turned to Hinata…
"Hinata… there's something I want to give you…" said Naruto.
"What?" asked Hinata.
"I want you… to close your eyes…" said Naruto.
Hinata did so… that's when Naruto leaned in and kissed her on the lips… causing Ino and Sakura to squeal…
"Oh Kakashi…" said Setsuna holding out her hand.
Kakashi sighed took out some cash… the two made a bet that Naruto would kiss Hinata… Kakashi said that Naruto wouldn't, Setsuna said he would…
The two stopped both began to blush… "When I get back we start dating… okay…" said Naruto.
"Sure thing…" said Hinata.
"Before I go…" said Naruto, "Opal… I want you to carry on my legacy in school… but get good grades…"
"Sure thing Naruto-Niichan!" said Opal.
Iruka sweatdroped… "Why do I have the feeling that Opal is going to be worse that Naruto ever was when it comes to pranks…" thought Iruka.
And with that Naruto left for his two and well they had to cut is back… it was less then two and half years…
Later in Ash's world everyone in Ash's group waited for Ash, Gary and Pikachu to return. All three landed in a crash.
"You okay?" asked Misty.
"Yeah…" said Ash.
And so they continued on their way.
"So how was it?" asked May.
"Well Naruto said some good parting words to Ash, Zatch and Luffy encouraging them… he also told Ranma to fix up his life…" said Gary.
"And Naruto also kissed Hinata…" said Ash.
"That's so sweet!" said May and Misty as the same time in the same girlish way.
That's when they go to a crossroads…
"So looks like we're parting ways again…" said Misty.
"Yeah…" said Ash.
"Ash… one more thing…" said Misty, "I'm still angry with you…"
Ash sweatdroped… Gary patted his back…
"There, there… she'll get over it eventually…" said Gary.
Meanwhile in Luffy's world, Ace was leaving…
"Looks like it's time for me to go…" said Ace.
"It was fun having you around…" said Luffy.
"Hey Luffy… if you need anything call me on the communicator…" said Ace.
"Okay!" said Luffy.
"Continue taking care of my brother…" said Ace.
"Hey what's that supposed to mean?" asked Luffy joking around a little.
Ace only laughed… "I'll be seeing you guys around…"
And with that he sped off in his boat.
"All right!" yelled Luffy, "To the next adventure!"
"Um… Luffy…" said Nami, "We're still course…"
"Oh yeah…" laughed Luffy.
Back in Ash's world…
"So you're staying?" asked Ash.
"What can I say… it's been fun traveling with you guys… a lot more than when I was alone… or with my fan girls…" said Gary, "You seem to have adventures all the time…"
"Yeah…" said Ash, "I guess we do…"
As they walked… Max said "You think that things will return to normal now?"
"What do you mean?" asked May.
"Well I think now that since the Neo Dark Kingdom is gone that things will return to normal…" said Max.
"Oh I get it…" said Gary, "He thinks that there will be no more cross-dimensional hopping…"
"I doubt things will return to the way they were before I found out I was a Sailor Senshi…" said Ash.
"Are you sure?" asked Max.
That's when a time portal appeared and Ranma-Chan fell out.
"I'm 100 percent positive…" said Ash.
"Ow…" said Ranma.
"Pikachu…" said Pikachu covering his nose (Translation: You reek of death…)
"What was it this time…" said Ash.
"I ran from Akane's cooking… she didn't' find me this time… but I suspect she's going to check Ukyo, Shampoo and the Snack Shack…" said Ranma-Chan.
"Why are you girl?" asked Brock.
"I was training with pops when I found out she was cooking…" said Ranma-Chan.
They continued on their way with Ranma-Chan… that's when another time portal showed up… it was Kiyo with Zatch.
"So what's the excuse for vesting us this time…" said Gary.
Kiyo sighed while getting up… "I just wanted to see you guys after Naruto left… okay…"
"Is it because he didn't give you any parting words?" asked Gary.
"Well kind of…" said Kiyo.
"Yaah I'm going to miss him too…" said Ash.
That's when yet another time portal this time Luffy…
"Erie…" said Ash.
"Yeah…" said Kiyo.
"Hey! I didn't know you guys were here too…" said Luffy.
"So what are you doing here Luffy?" asked Ash.
"I was bored…" replied Luffy with a big grin.
"Well I guess I was wrong…" said Max with a sweat drop.
"So Luffy did Ace leave?" asked Gary.
"Yeah… I thought he would once everything was okay…" said Luffy.
"So what's the battle frontier thing again?" asked Ranma.
"Well it's…" said Ash.
Before he could say anything a hand grabbed Pikachu. It pulled Ash up to certain Meowth shaped balloon where everyone's favorite idiot criminals were putting Pikachu into a box… then they performed their motto which was surprisingly revised…
"Prepare for Trouble"
"And make it double"
"An evil as old as the Galaxy…"
"…sent here to fulfill our destiny"
"Plus there's me!"
"To denounce the evils of truth and love!"
"To Extend our reach to the Stars above!"
"And Meowth are the names!"
"Wherever there's peace in the universe…"
"Will be there…"
"To make everything worse!"
"Team Rocket!" yelled Ash.
"I can see that they changed their motto…" said Kiyo with a sweat drop.
"Yeah…" said Ash.
"So how are you going to rescue Pikachu?" asked Zatch.
"I choose you Swellow!" said Ash.
Swellow began to peck Team Rocket…
"Get away you stupid bird!" yelled Jessie.
"Luffy... can you…" said Ash.
"Sure thing…" said Luffy.
Luffy grabbed the box with Pikachu in it… while Team Rocket was distracted.
When Luffy got Pikachu on the ground… Ash got it out of the box…
"Okay…" said Ash.
"Can we help zap him…" said Zatch.
This caused Kiyo sweat drop…
"Sure…" said Ash.
Kiyo began to sweat drop even more…
"Pikachu! Use Thunder Bolt!" called Ash.
Swellow dodged and the two electric blast hit Team Rocket… casein the balloon to explode…
"Team Rockets blasting off again!"
"Do you think they saw Zatch?" asked Kiyo.
"No one bit…" said Gary.
"Hey… they're gone…" said May to Ranma-Chan who was hiding behind her because of her fear of cat-like Pokemon.
"Hey… I'm not scared…" said Ranma-Chan.
Everyone rolled their eyes… even Zatch did…
"Well we should get going…" said Ash.
"You know we're still a day or so away from the Battle Factory right?" asked Max.
"…" responded Ash, "I knew that…"
"Yeah right…" said Ranma-Chan.
"I did…" said Ash.
"No you didn't…" said Gary.
For the next hour Ash continued to claim that he knew that they were still pretty far from the Battle Factory…
And so even though the Neo Dark Kingdom was no more… the senshi had become friends… and no matter what they will always be friends.
