YO! This is Shiko speaking! I am coming at you with a brand new fanfiction! Blame Culex, he showed me this fanfic that made me want to puke so I want to write a decent fanfic for the pairing. The pairing is Shikamaru/Tayuya! YAY! There are also oc's... but they are important to the plot and I couldn't make this fic without them. You are about to meet them, the four ANBU that start this whole fic. No, they will not be getting with cannon characters, so there. I have bigger plans for them.

Anyway, this fic is dedicated to Culex. May this fic be what you wanted and so much moreā€¦ Oh yeah, if you see anything that you don't like, let me know so I can change it. Also, the other ANBU's thoughts will be coming into play shortly. I just need to get used to their personalities for now.

Disclaimer:

Kain: Shiko doesn't own Naruto. She only owns the Black wolf ANBU and the Red Wolf ANBU. The Grey wolf and the White wolf belong to her friends. GreyKeiji and WhiteTyriel (haha Culex, I let Tyty be in the fic cause he rocks)

Shiko: Enjoy the fic! P.S. I am just an innocent bystander on the road of life. When an idea hits me, I have to write or draw it. So... don't attack me! grabs Culex You can attack him. He is the reason why Naruto Digital will be getting slower updates. (Probably not. It honestly depends on when I get inspiration again -) (A.N. that little skit was for when I post this on I have followers on there lol. They will be disappointed in me... oh well.)

Prologue

The Anbu reached the area that Tayuya of the Sound Four had died. They heard that a Sand kunoichi by the name of Temari had been the one to deliver the final blow. The Anbu arrived at a bunch of fallen trees and saw a lone arm sticking out of the mess.

"That must be her," an anbu in a white wolf mask said as he approached the arm. It was amazing that one girl could do this much destruction. He was glad that she was on their side-

The sudden movement of a finger on said lone hand brought the man out of his thoughts. It could have been an involuntary movement of muscles, but at the same time... Another finger moved and the man grit his teeth. Damn, that probably wasn't involuntary muscle movement. He signaled for the other anbu to wait as he went over to the arm. He peered into the gap between the trees and saw what he had feared. The slight rising and falling of a woman's chest. She was alive.

"We've got a live one!" He shouted as he signaled the other anbu to come over. They peered into the gap and shook their heads.

"What shall we do?" One in a Grey Wolf mask asked as she looked toward the one in the White wolf mask. "She's not dead and we were told to bring back the bodies of those belonging to the Sound Four."

"Ah, but Tsunade-sama never said that they had to be dead," another in a black wolf mask said as she put her hands on her hips. "I say we just finish the mission by any means necessary.."

The anbu in the white wolf mask thought about it for a good minuet and then turned to his fellow anbu. "We take her to Tsunade-sama." The anbu in the Black Wolf mask smiled even though no one could see it while the one in the Grey Wolf mask just shrugged her shoulders.

"Why?" The final Anbu, this one in a Red Wolf mask, asked as he crossed his arms over his chest. Why would they want to bring someone like Tayuya into the village?

"Think about it," the one in the White mask said as he put his hands on a tree on top of the pile. "The genin failed the mission to bring the Uchiha back. The Uchiha is now with Orochimaru. She knows where Orochimaru is." He let the words sink in before he continued. "We need her alive in order to bring the Uchiha back. Now then, let's start moving these trees." With that, the four anbu began to move the trees away from Tayuya, freeing the girl from her wooden prison. The man in the Red Wolf mask bent down and picked her up when he was able to do so without causing her more pain. He then began to run back to village without another word.

The Black wolf shook her head, "Why does he always do that?" She turned to the others and pointed to the direction that their teammate went. "Shall we go now?"

The Grey wolf nodded her head and started off in the direction the Red Wolf went. When she was gone, the Black wolf looked toward the White wolf.

"I hope you know what you are doing," she told him as she scratched the back of her head.

"You should know by now not to question your leader," he said as he looked at her. "Besides, weren't you the one who suggested taking her to the village?"

"I was keeping all the options open," she said as she cracked her neck. "I'll be heading back now," she announced as she took off in the direction the others had gone. The White wolf sighed, this was going to be a tough team...

So Don't Break my page, my Achey Breaky Page, I just don't think it'll understand. For if you break my page, my achey breaky page, it might blow up and kill this girl!

(I don't own the original song, the person who wrote it did. Whoever can name the song gets a cookie! The name will be posted next chapter!)

The four anbu watched as the Hokage finished healing Tayuya. The woman looked at them with honey colored eyes and a smile upon her lips. "It was fortunate that you were able to find her in time," she said as she stood up. She wiped her hands on a towel that the Grey wolf anbu handed her and nodded her heads toward them. "You four have just sealed the Uchiha's fate," she said as she walked over and placed the towel in a bin. "We can get information out of this girl and she will lead us straight to Orochimaru."

Three anbu nodded their heads while one, the Black wolf, cocked her head to one side. "But she probably won't tell." The other three looked at the girl, glaring at her behind their masks. Didn't she know when to keep her mouth shut?

Tsunade looked at the Black wolf and then walked up so she was standing in front of her. "That is true, but I already have everything taken care of." The Red wolf looked at the Hokage for a second and then turned his attention back to the unconscious Tayuya. All hell would break loose when she woke up, so the chances of her cooperating with them were slim to none.

"So what is the plan?" Tsunade raised a golden brow at the Black wolf. She wasn't used to this kind of treatment from someone who was supposed to be at her beck and call. However, she felt no need to punish the girl. After all, she was in the Anbu and was used to getting filled in on things.

"You will all take turns watching over Tayuya and the person who will be in charge of her." The Grey wolf's eye twitched silently. She didn't want to have to watch over someone, especially someone like Tayuya. She kept this to herself as she continued to listen to Tsunade speak, hoping the woman would change her mind somewhere down the line. "You will be given dates and times of when you will watch them," she continued as she walked over to a folder and brought out four pieces of paper. She handed one sheet to each Anbu and put her hands behind her back. "It is vital that you all do what you are told, do I make myself clear?"

"Yes, Hokage-sama," they said in unison, knowing that now there was no way out of it.

"You are dismissed," she said with a wave of her hand. "I will call for you all when it is time for you to meet the person in charge of Tayuya. The Anbu nodded and filed out of the room. When they were far enough away, they finally began to loosen up a bit.

"Man," the Black wolf said as she hung her head. "There goes most of my free time." The White wolf growled a bit in the back of his throat.

"You are in the Anbu, you should be used to having no free time." The girl simply shrugged her shoulders lazily and walked off, leaving the group to themselves. The White wolf looked at the other two, but they were already gone. Great, he had a team from hell and there was no heaven in sight. Not only that, but they now had a mission that would require them to probably work together. He closed his eyes and walked off, needing the alone time.

page break no song this time I'm lazy

Tsunade sat at her desk as she looked at the file in front of her. This man was going to be Tayuya's babysitter. She felt sorry that she had to do this to him, but he was the only one who even knew who she was. He was a chunnin, so he could get missions like this now... besides, the anbu would be watching over them. Still, the thought of Tayuya being able to fight still concerned her. She opened a drawer and pulled out another folder. She smirked as she opened it up. This would do very nicely. She put the folder down and smiled at herself, this was going to work out perfectly.

The picture on the file of the chunnin was none other than Nara Shikamaru.

PAGE BREAK

Shikamaru opened his eyes as he felt a chill run down his spine. That was never a good sign. He rolled over so that is back was the ground as he looked up at the sky. He hoped that it was just a figment of his imagination and watched as the clouds floated through the sky.

Shiko: ... yeah prologue thing is done! and it took me less than one night to complete it. I hope you like it, Culex! Any way's, there is a lot more where this came from, I just need to put it down in writing some where. Any way, I saved Tayuya's life (I think I modified her so-called death pose... but oh well) and poor Shika is going to be a babysitter O.o oh no! Good thing I already came up with what he is going to get, ne Shika? Any ways, I hope you enjoy the fic!

Shiko out!
