Author's Note: Well howdy! Long time no see, eh? My summer has been fabulous! I got a major sunburn that has now faded into a farmer's tan! Whoot! Anyways, here is the next installment of OMBS! THE BOYS' CONCERT!! Hope you likey!

Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto because if I did the Akatsuki would be a hippie gang and would spend their time smelling flowers, instead of trying to take over the world!

Warning! Yay! Finally a plot! There will be extreme over usage of the words 'Oh My God'

Note:In this story Tobi and Madara are separate entities. I just find it hard to believe that stupidly cute Tobi (the one who dropped his ring into a crack in the ground) is the same person as the sneaky and revengeful Madara (who helped destroy the Uchiha's).

So, Madara bad and Tobi good!

NOW ON WITH THE STORY!


Of Music and Boarding School

Our time is here:


"So," Neji asked as soon as they had stepped out of the school and into the back parking lot that following morning. "How was the visit from your brother?"

"He wouldn't fucking leave!" Naruto shouted, his voice ringing through the quietness that had once descended over the parking lot.

Shikamaru quirked an eyebrow, "What do you mean?"

"The Cheetos, man! Why the fuck did I buy the Cheetos!?" the blonde moaned into his hands. Shikamaru and Neji stared at the two as if they were on crack.

"What are they on?" Neji asked quietly behind his hand and Shikamaru could only shrug in confusion. Then again, they did look kind of tired. Both had dark bags under their eyes, from lack of sleep the brunettes assumed.

Sasuke had been yawning all morning while the blonde had been fight to keep his eyes open. They looked as if they were both in dire need of an energy drink.

"Jeez…" Sasuke muttered unhappily while rubbing his irritated eyes. And just when he thought his brother's friends couldn't get any stupider…


"Hey." Sakura announced upon entering the classroom to Hinata and TenTen. Ino waved from behind the pinkette in greeting as the two roommates sat down at their respective seats.

Knowing Kakashi was going to be tardy (yet again), Ino- after setting her books down- followed TenTen as the brunette scurried over to Hinata and Sakura for a little chit-chat before their teacher walked through the door.

After a moment, the conversation halted as Sakura noticed something was amiss.

"Where's Uchiha?" She asked while looking at the empty seat that was right next to hers and then added, "And the others?" when she saw the other three boys' chairs were also vacant.

Ino and the two others mirrored her previous actions. Weird…

"Maybe they're sick?" TenTen offered with a half-hearted shrug. Sakura raised an eyebrow.

"All four of them, though?" Sakura turned to Hinata. "Did your cousin say they were going anywhere?"

Hinata shook her head. "No, nothing I know of at least."

"Hmm." Sakura said suspiciously.

Ino smirked. "Why are you so concerned Sakura-chan?" Sakura gave her a look and continued her pondering.

What were the chances that all four boys were out at the same time? "Maybe they all caught something last night." Hinata offered, making Sakura frown.

"Within a 15 hour period?" Even with Sakura being a medic it sounded ridiculous. Viruses couldn't take affect that fast, could they? In all her years of studying medicine with Tsunade-shishou, she had never encountered a virus that had spread that fast, let alone through 4 healthy boys' immune system. (A/N: Yeah, I'm no doctor so if I'm wrong- just bear with me then, ne?)

They could have some type of disease…Sakura wrinkled her nose at her inner. That could be a possibility, but Sasuke had sounded perfectly healthy last night on the phone when Itachi had called him from his car to tell his little brother he had arrived.

Not that she, herself, had talked to the youngest Uchiha, but Itachi had put his little brother on speaker so she, and the rest of her backseat companions, could hear their conversation.

And he didn't sound pleased at all that his big bro. was coming over to bond with him. Inner Sakura snickered and imagined herself pinching Sasuke's cheeks affectionately.

Serves him right for being such a prick yesterday… Sakura's thoughts, however, were interrupted when a brown haired man walked into the classroom and introduced himself.

"Hello everyone! I'm so sorry I'm late!" he said sheepishly. "My name is Umino Iruka. As you can see Kakashi-san isn't here today so I'll be filling in for him." Iruka smiled cheerfully.

Sakura narrowed her eyes.

Kakashi too? This was getting really weird. What were the chances of four teenage boys and a teacher- who were all thoroughly acquainted with- would go 'missing' on the same exact day? It was, very suspicious, to say the least.

"Will everyone please return to their seats so we can get started?" Iruka said pleasantly and turned around to write a few notes on the board. Sakura sighed and shook her head- she'd have to deal with this later. Taking out her notebook, the pinkette wrote down the words the substitute had put up.

She'd defiantly have to make a phone call to a certain someone later.


"Man your battle stations!! Load the cannons!"

Sasuke rolled his eyes, "Dobe, this isn't a fucking pirate ship! It's a concert, you dolt." And walked back up the aisle, muttering on how giving Naruto a Monster was one of the worst ideas Shikamaru has ever had.

"And get down from there!" the raven added as an after thought.

The blonde pouted and jumped down from the rafter, onto a mini cherry-picker that he had used to get up there with. "Mah!" he yelled and pushed the button to descend. "You no fun, teme!"

Sasuke flipped him the bird and caused his best friend to chuckle.


Sakura crouched in the bathroom stall to find a signal. Not having any luck, she got up and carefully maneuvered to stand atop the toilet seat.

"Yes!" she whispered in triumph when a single bar popped up on the screen and quickly hit the number 5 on her speed dial.

"Hello, Sakura." A familiar masculine voice answered, making her smile slightly.

"Hey, I need to ask you something."

"Oh, really? And what would that be Sa-Ku-Ra?"

She huffed. "You know, your brother calls me that too." Sakura crossed her arms and a pout settled on her face. "I swear, you two are like twins…" she murmured just loud enough for the receiving end to pick up.

Itachi chuckled. "Hmm…Now where have I heard that line before?"

Sakura rolled her eyes. "About my question…?"

"Ah, yes. What is it?"

"Well, your brother didn't come to class today and I was wondering if you knew why he and his friends didn't show?"

"Hn. I might."

"Itachi…" Sakura bit out warningly causing the older Uchiha to smirk on the other line.

"Why so interested, Sakura? You worried about him or something?"

Sakura sputtered. "W-what?! No! I just wanted to know because, it seemed strange that him and his friends were all absent on the same day! Besides, even our English teacher is missing and it all seems very suspicious to the girls and I. That's all!" she finished, panting, from saying so much in one breath.

Itachi 'tsk'-ed. "I'm sorry, pinku-chan(1). But that information is strictly classified." There was a hint of teasing in his voice. "So, I can't tell you."

"Why not?" Sakura whined, hating that she sounded like a little kid but figured if would soften the Uchiha up a bit.

"Because momo iro(2), What fun would that be?" And with that, he dropped the call. So much for softening him up…

Sakura gave out a distressed and angry growl as the lunch bell rang and stepped down from the toilet seat and out the stall. Pocketing her phone and curiosity with it.


"What, Aniki?" Sasuke bit out when he answered his cell.

His brother chuckled. "Mah, someone's cranky today. What's the matter, Otouto? Wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?"

Sasuke snarled. He would know! It was his fault that Sasuke was so fucking tired today! Not to mention that he had a concert in less than 12 hours!! It would have been an understatement when said that Sasuke was a 'little' cranky this morning. He had already thrown a janitor out a window for bumping into him, while on his way to the bathroom. What was wrong with him?!

No, Aniki. What's wrong with you?! You stupid, son of a-

"Alright, alright. I just wanted to call to tell you that it seems your girlfriend was worried about you, that's all."

Sasuke's internal blood-fest ceased for a moment. He wrinkled his eyebrows in confusion and tilted his head. "Girlfriend? What girlfriend?"

He could hear his brother's smirk all the way from across the line. "Oh, you know. The one with green eyes…and pink hair-"

"Haruno?!" Sasuke choked on his spit. "The hell, Itachi…?" he managed to get out before coughing again.

The elder Uchiha feigned innocence. "What? Don't tell me you really do like her?"

"T'ch, no." Sasuke said after regaining his composure. "Hey wait a minute," he said after something occurred to him. "How does Haruno know your number?"

"Ah, that's classified information, brother."

The youngest Uchiha frowned suspiciously. "Why does it seem like you know her personally and more than on an acquaintance level?"

Itachi pursed is lips. "Whatever do you mean, Otouto?"

"Nii-san, I know you're lying to me…" Sasuke growled.

His older brother sighed. "I do not know what you are talking about. The bark on the trees are as green as ever. You are sorrowfully mistaken to think that they are red, little brother."

"What?" Sasuke pulled the phone away from his ear and gave it a funny look. "The hell are you on, Itachi?"

"Brother, you need to understand the difference between taking and asking. If you wanted a Klondike bar, all you had to do was ask." Another sigh was heard. "But instead, you continuously try and sneak the Hershey's out of the house and get caught using the couch as your stationary. It's very un-sightly. What would mother think?"

Sasuke was getting more confused by the minute. Deciding that his brother must be on something, he hung up the phone before he caught whatever Itachi had inhaled (probably paint fumes again), even if they were just using the phone.

Sasuke shook his head. It wasn't like his brother did drugs or anything, Itachi made sure not to set a bad example for his little brother. And it wasn't as if they would benefit him anyway- 'It's just a waste of money and brain cells' Itachi had explained to the youngest Uchiha.

Whatever the hell his elder sibling was rambling on about over the phone, Sasuke didn't want to know.


"So, your brother was asking about our little cherry blossom, was he?" Itachi turned to his shark-like friend and nodded, setting his cell phone down as he got up from his sitting position to stretch.

"And you used the 'Bark on the Trees' method to confuse and cause the poor son-of-a-bitch to think that you are on some type of drug that induced you to- ultimately- talk crazy shit and freak him out, while making him forget all about his little interrogation on how you know Sakura personally?" Kisame asked uninterestedly, while continuing to stare at the computer monitor in front of him, clicking the mouse every so often.

"Mhmm." The shark-like man turned around in his chair and raised an eyebrow at his dark haired companion.

"You do realize that he's going to probably tell your parents that you're on something, right?"

Itachi shrugged and plopped down onto the couch, hands behind his head in a nonchalant manner. "At least it stopped him from asking me how I know Sakura."

Kisame shook his head. "That boy's getting too curious for his own good…"

"Don't I know it." The raven-haired man ran a hand through his bangs, letting out a sigh. "He'll eventually put two-and-two together and figure it out sometime…I just hope he won't freak out or anything like that."

"Or go to Orochimaru." Silence rang through the room like a shotgun going off. The eldest Uchiha leaned forward, putting his forearms onto his knees, interlacing his fingers and stared at the ground.

It wasn't a secret among the Akatsuki, that Itachi's little brother had deflected leaf -and ultimately Konaha- to pursue Orochimaru, one of the three legendary Sannin, when he was at the tender age of just twelve. When Orochimaru had fled the organization after failing to sway Itachi to become his latest protégéé- the sick bastard had gone after his kid brother.

And after he had given the curse seal to Sasuke…

It had been a living hell. For both of the brothers.

Getting him back was one thing, but keeping him here…It was like training a bloodthirsty tiger to become a vegetarian­.

Impossible.

The only thing keeping Sasuke here, in Konaha and not at that psycho ward called Sound, was Itachi's steel-strong will and stubbornness not to let his baby brother get corrupted by that pedophile and destroy what little innocence he had left, forever.

No matter how old Sasuke got, Itachi would always remember of him as the little eight-year-old boy who had admired him so much and wanted to be with him every minute, to follow in his foot-steps and later on surpass his older brother at whatever he did.

They didn't hate each other -even if they did have occasional fights and petty little arguments- they were brothers and loved each other.

When they had been younger, and their parents had been overbearing, they were each other's best friend. The siblings had been close as brothers could get without stepping over the boundaries of incest.

Because if it wasn't for that, Itachi reasoned, he would have definitely gone crazy by now from their parents' higher than almighty expectations.

(And that had even been before Haruno Alice came into the picture and ultimately turned his world upside down).

He knew that his foolish little brother hadn't meant to betray leaf and help Orochimaru destroy Konaha. He had just wanted attention like everybody else had given his elder sibling. Sharing the spotlight, even.

And especially acceptance from their father.

It had been Sasuke's dream to make Fugaku recognize him as someone and not an inferior to his prodigy of a brother.

(Singing had been just a hobby for him at that time, not a serious carrier like it was now).

Being their mother's favorite had helped ease the pain a little but had, all in all, done little to soften the blow of Fugaku's constant rejection.

When Orochimaru had finally approached his younger sibling, Sasuke had immediately refused his offer, but with the snake-like man's fast talk and sweet words, it wasn't long until the youngest Uchiha was shipping himself off to Oto without a word of consent to either his older brother or parents.

Orochimaru spelled trouble, plain and simple.

"Especially with his connection to Sakura and all." Itachi finally spoke.

"Mmm." Kisame hummed. "That too. Even if she doesn't remember…" he finished off awkwardly, leaving his companion to raise a brow.

"What, that he killed her parents?" The raven-haired man sat up straight. "Che' no kidding. Leader-sama would rather keep that quiet."

"Ignorance isbliss…Cherish it." Itachi nodded and smiled sadly.

"Sakura's father was his best friend, after all." He said softly.

"Yeah, that's why he got the honor of being her godfather, right?"

"Yeah." The eldest Uchiha sibling pinched the bridge of his nose and frowned. "I can't even imagine what it would be like to have your best friend murdered by one of your underlings and not even knowing it until after you hired him to be in your gang."

Kisame bared his sharp teeth and growled. "The fuck-tard even tried getting you to be his next successor."

"T'ch." He scoffed. "Like I'd let him."

"He needs to be taught a lesson…" The blue man muttered angrily.

Itachi crossed his arms and leaned back into the sofa, crossing his ankle. "Yeah, well. So does my great Uncle. He helped you know."

"Who?" Kisame cocked his head to the side. "Madara?"

The Uchiha nodded stiffly.

"Figures." He scoffed. "He was always one to cause trouble."

"Who was?" Both men turned to the doorway where Sasori stood, leaning against the frame, arms crossed.

"Madara." Itachi answered simply.

Sasori frowned and wrinkled his eyebrows together. "What are you talking about him for?"

"Nothing much," The Uchiha said, a lazy smirk thrown on his face. "Just reminiscing on how much he fucked up all our lives with Orochimaru helping in the process."

"Ah," The redhead said quietly and walked into the room. "You know, I found a police report the other day that you two might be interested in."

"Oh, really?" Kisame asked and moved out of the computer chair to let Sasori sit down and find the report. After a few moments of 'click'ing he pulled up the report and moved to the side so the two other occupants could lean in and read.

The report went into detail about how two teenagers- a boy and a girl, went for a walk a couple of weeks ago and were never heard from again. Two weeks later, an old woman, with her husband and dog, went out for a walk when they noticed something strange propped up next an old warehouse.

The old man and woman evidently had found a young male, around the age of 16 or so, murdered, with the whole front of his abdomen torn open, the organs scraped out and gone as well. When police arrived they identified and confirmed it to be the missing boy from two weeks prior.

Upon later investigations, no information was found on the girl, however.

"Fuck." Itachi said while gritting his teeth.

"Double fuck." Kisame added. "Where did this happen?"

Sasori leaned back over and clicked on a link that brought up a map of the location where the victim disappeared and where he was found. "South side." He said simply and pointed to the red dots. "Where he was abducted and where he was found."

"That's by Sakura and Sasuke's school." Itachi growled and pointed to a box, about a half an inch away from the site of the crime, that represented the school.

"Okay, I get that this is a horrible crime and everything, Sasori." The blue haired man said, turning to the redhead. "But, I don't get why this would interest us so much, like you said it would."

"What they didn't mention," he leaned in close to Kisame's face, a cruel smirk on his face. "Was that the eyes where plucked out of his own head."

"So?" Kisame asked, oblivious to his partner's body stiffening.

"I'm surprised they didn't tell you, Itachi." He addressed the raven-haired man.

"Tell him what?" The shark-like man snarled, angry he was being left out of the conversation.

Sasori drew his face back. "That, that kid they found, was an Uchiha."

Silence, once again, descended throughout the room.

"Are you sure?" Itachi asked seriously.

"As sure as I am about Deidara giving me head." He answered honestly.

"Dude," The Samehada wielder said, giving the redhead a look.

Sasori shrugged half-heartedly.

Itachi sighed and rubbed his temples, an oncoming headache that was sure to become bad. "Did you tell Leader-sama about this?"

He shook his head. "He's been in Rain, remember? He told us not to contact him unless it was an emergency."

"Hello!" Kisame said and gave the crimson haired Akatsuki member a strong 'whack' on the back of his head, making him wince. "I would classify this type of situation as an emergency!!"

"But he's the Hanzo of Rain (3)!" Sasori yelled, touching his head lightly where he hand been backhanded.

"Who the Fuck caresif he's the Hanzo of Rain?!" Kisame yelled back, grabbing the front of his shirt and shaking him. "This is an emergency! You shit nugget!"

"What?!" Sasori twisted Kisame's wrists, making him let go of the front of his shirt and put him in a half nelson. "The fuck does that even mean?!"

"Where's Leader-sama?!" The Samehada wielder tackled the other Akatsuki member, making them both fall to the floor.

"He went out to lunch with Konan, today." Itachi stated calmly, watching the two idiots strangle themselves.

"Argg! God, he's like, obsessed with her!!"

"Well no shit! She's his wife!! You dumb fuck!" Kisame growled at Sasori's insult and flipped him over, effectively pinning him on his stomach, with Kisame sitting on top of him.

"Hehe," The blue haired man snickered. "Who's the 'dumb fuck' now, eh Sasori?" His reply was a choked off grumble.

"Whatare you guys doing?" All three members turned to the door where Haruno Alice stood, with her hands on her hips and an eyebrow raised.

"Well hello, ferret." Itachi smirked when she gave him a seething glare in response.

"Uh, Kisame." He turned to her and she gave him a sweet smile. "I think your crushing him." She said pointing to Sasori's face that was rapidly losing color.

"Oh," he grunted and stood up, letting the other man up. Grunting, Sasori rose up on his hands and knees looking up at the big blue man.

"Damn Kisame…You weigh like 500 pounds."

He grinned down at the redhead and patted his arms. "It's all muscle, baby."

"Ugh," He groaned and stood up clutching his rib cage, giving Kisame a hard jab in the side. Then turned to give Alice a smile. "Hey, Alice."

She smiled back at him.

"How long are you staying for?" She shrugged.

"Until break is over." She scratched the back of her head and gave a sheepish grin. "Though I can't remember the date off the top of my head."

"Heh, So you like the college lifestyle?"

"Oh, yes." She said while clasping his hands together mockingly. "Especially when weasel over here is taking all of the same classes as I am."

"Uh-huh." Itachi said pointing at her with his finger. "I'm not taking synchronized swimming."

"That's because it's for girls only!!" Alice screamed in his face and grabbed the finger that was pointing at her and twisted it. "I took that class because of that reason you egotistical jerk!"

He pulled his finger out of the death grip she had over it. "Mah, no need to yell, Alice."

She let out a frustrated growl that made her face turn red. Fisting her fingers together, she drew her hand back but was jolted by her collar being pulled back. She looked up and saw none other than the leader of the Akatsuki giving her a glare.

She smiled sheepishly as Pein let go of her collar. "I don't like you trying to harass my underlings, Alice."

"Aw, Pushpin! You really do care about them, huh?" She slapped him on the back, causing a deep frown to surface onto his face. "That's so sweet!"

Pein grabbed her hand and flung it to her side, lips set into a firm line. "Alice, don't make me throw you out a window." He sighed.

She shook her head and sighed in mock disappointment. "You can't hurt me Pin-cushion." She grabbed Konan, who was standing next to her husband with her arms crossed, and put her hands on the blue haired woman's shoulders. "I'm your wife's best friend."

"She's right, you know." Sasori calmly pointed out.

The leader rolled his eyes and shook his head. "What did you need to show me?" he asked, turning to his three subordinates.

They gave him incredulous looks. Well, more like Sasori and Kisame did, Itachi just stood there with an eyebrow raised. "We could here you all from the other end of the compound." Konan elaborated boredly for the bewildered party.

"We found something interesting." Itachi voiced, the first to break out of his stupor. The leader raised an eyebrow, motioning to continue.

Sasori lead him over to the computer and showed him all of the information they had collected. As soon as the explicatory had started, Alice and Konan had each come over to where the boys were and listened in as well.

"Well doesn't that just figure…" Alice muttered as soon as Sasori had stopped explaining everything to them.

To say Pein was angry would have been an understatement. He was livid, furious; a type of angry that couldn't even be described in words. His fists clenched involuntarily and his face was contorted into a deep scowl complete with teeth grinding. But, to say the least, he wasn't all that surprised. He had been expecting his old comrades (if they could even be refereed to as such) to make some type of move for a long time coming.

But never anything like this.

It wasn't a surprise that Madara was outright attacking the Uchiha clan, but Orochimaru helping him? That was something he never saw coming.

He could understand why the once-been-Uchiha was rising up against Itachi's family, Madara had been holding a grudge against his old kin for a long time now. But him and Orochimaru working together to bring the Uchiha down? It was suspicious. Not that anything the Sannin did wasn't suspicious, but this more so than anything else he'd ever concocted, even under Pein's rule over him.

It was a dead give-away that it was the both of them just by looking and hearing about the condition of the body. The removal of the eyes was Madara's doing, (for what that man would need those for, Pein was glad that he didn't know, it was better not to bring up images that would make him lose his lunch) and the removal of the internal organs was probably the work of Orochimaru's right-hand man, Kabuto.

The young boy that had been found had probably experimented on before he was disemboweled and for 'what'- was the question that desperately needed to be answered and fast.

For all of they're sakes.

"Damn it!" Pein yelled and slammed his fist down onto the unsuspecting computer table. He stood up abruptly and started to pace, his back to everyone. "Christ…" he muttered under his breath and rubbed his forehead.

"When did you find this?"

The redhead shrugged. "A couple of days ago."

"What?" He whipped around. "Why didn't you tell me?"

"You were in Rain!"

"And you didn't think to contact me there?"

"You said not to call you unless it was an emergency." He said and stood up.

"I think this would be classified as an emergency, Sasori." Pein said and crossed his arms, giving him a level stare.

"But, you're the Hanzo of Rain!"

"Who the fuck caresif I'm the Hanzo of Rain?!"

"That's what I said!" the blue haired man declared gleefully.

"Shut up, Kisame!" Both of them yelled and cause a frown to replace his features.

"Leader-sama, with all do respect." Itachi said, entering the conversation. "If it's any constellation, what Sasori did was probably the smartest thing to do."

Pein gave him an incredulous look and pointedly ignored his subordinate's grin. "Care to explain?"

Itachi shrugged. "Well, if he did tell you when you were in Rain, then you probably wouldn't have had as much concentration on the tasks that needed to be done over there, correct?" Taking a look at Pein's frown, he continued. "Plus, tonight is when everyone comes home so we can have everyone on deck and working to figure this all out."

The orange haired leader stared at Itachi for a minute until he smirked. "I always knew there was a reason I named you my heir." (4)

Sasori mocked a pout. "It's just 'cause he's your favorite."

"Why no Sasori, I'm sure you're all aware that Konan is actually my favorite." He said and patted him on the back, causing Konan to smirk and Alice to giggle, who was failing to hide them behind her hand.


"Alright, is everyone ready?" Sakura asked as she came out her bedroom, fully dressed for their rival's concert.

"You bet!" Ino cheered. "I'm so excited!"

Sakura raised an eyebrow and smiled at her best friend. "Excited about seeing our competition? Well that's new."

The blonde huffed. "Oh come on, Sakura! You can't tell me you aren't a little excited to see this concert! I mean, it was sold out! And it's at that awesome entertainment hall where there's bound to be a killer light show!" She squealed.

Sakura had to admit though, she was a little excited to go to a concert that she didn't have to perform in. It could be interesting to watch their competitor's live and see how much they could pump up the crowd.

"Alright, alright you two." TenTen held up her hands and sighed. "Can we just get there in one piece please?"

"Yeah, yeah." Ino pouted.

Hinata giggled. "Okay well, we should be going now or else we'll have to wait in line for ever."

"'Kay." They all chorused and left Sakura and Ino's dorm, safely locking it behind them.

Besides, How bad could it be?

Too bad she was about to eat her words…


"Everyone ready?"

"Yes, teme." Naruto said and patted him on the shoulder. "Lighten up, will ya?" He gave a cheeky grin. "It's not like your nervous or anything like that, right?"

Sasuke raised an eyebrow at his idiot of a best friend. "T'ch. You know I don't get nervous, dobe."

"Mah," the blonde said, retracting his arm. "Whatever you say, bastard…"

Sasuke shook his head and frowned when his bangs covered his eyes, effectively blocking his view of everything.

For the performance, the stylists had straightened his hair so that it no longer stuck up in his obscure 'chicken's butt' style (As Sakura loved to call it) but now hung limply in his face, making him brush it back every few minutes (5).

It was beginning to get annoying.

He was also wearing dark, emerald-green contacts, which whenever he looked into a mirror, reminded him of a certain pink-haired classmate of his.

He then later blamed these thoughts on his elder brother who had the audacity to call him and tell him Sakura was worried about him. Him! Of all people! But now, thinking back on it, Sasuke internally chuckled. The day Sakura became concerned for him was the day he'd find out the true identities of 'Undreamed Visions'.

Which meant, in sarcastic terms for Sasuke, was not coming anytime soon.

He looked over to his companions and noted how they had their appearances altered. Naruto was now a brunette (which was really weird. What had those makeup artists been thinking?) and had brown contacts in. Shikamaru's hair was the same except it was now down and brushed out until it was perfectly straight, he was also sporting blue contacts. Neji, on the other hand, had his long coffee-brown hair up in a high ponytail, with light green contacts.

Which made Sasuke snicker a little. He was so goofy looking with his hair up like that.

"Alright, gentlemen." Their manager addressed them and motioned them over to where he was standing.

"Your opening act is on in ten minutes, so you've got about forty-five minutes before you all go on." He began, smiling. "In about fifteen minutes the stage crew will usher you into your positions, alright?"

Naruto rolled his eyes. "Sensei, it's not like we haven't done this before, you know."

Kakashi patted the boy on the head. "Of, course." And then walked away.

"Whelp! This had been fun boys, but I gotta go pee!" Naruto announced to the group, who then rolled their eyes as he sped off towards the bathroom.


She had to plug her ears when the gate to the concert hall opened up and everyone started to scream in joy. They had been waiting in line for about twenty minutes, (which was huge by the way! She began to wonder if it had been like this for their concert) because the entrances weren't allowed to open until 5:45 p.m.

So that left them with about an hour to get to their seats and get all set (which were about 10 sections away from the stage. Not too close where you could see the sweat drip off the performers but not too far away that you needed binoculars- they were just perfect).

"Hang on to each other guys!" Ino yelled and grabbed Sakura's hand, who in turn, grasped Hinata's who grabbed TenTen's. The blonde plunged into the crowd of rowdy fans and practically ran to the entryway and showed the woman all of their tickets, shoving people out of the way in the process.

She acknowledged them and nodded her head, letting the four girls through. As soon as they got into the park they released each other's hands.

"Oh my god, that was nuts!" Sakura exclaimed.

"We should totally get special treatment!" Ino pouted.

TenTen frowned. "Yeah, to bad they have no idea who were are."

Hinata giggled. "And if they did, all of them," she motioned to the screaming mass of people trying to get through and into the park. "Would be after us."

Sakura sighed. "You have a point, Hinata."

"Okay," TenTen said, clapping her hands together. "We have about…" she checked her watch. "45 minutes to find our seats and settle down before the opening act comes on."

"Alright! Souvenir time!" The blonde yelled and pumped his fist into the air. She was about to walk over to the T-shirt kiosk before a hand gripped her collar and pulled her back to the group.

"What the hell do you think your doing?!" Sakura hissed. "This is our enemy's concert! Not some regular boy-band's!"

Ino gave her a sarcastic look. "I know that, Sakura. But do see how cute that bag is!" She pointed to a black handbag with 'Apocalypse Assault''s signature emblem on one of the corners of it.

"Besides," she pulled Sakura's arm off of hers. "I could always burn the emblem off of it."

Hinata nodded. "It would make for a very good campfire starter. It looks flammable enough."

"Not to mention a 'killer light show'!" TenTen mocked the blonde and grinned.

Ino laughed, "That too!"

"Okay," Sakura said. "But only ten minutes!"

"Yes, mother!"


"Stations people!" A crew-member yelled in his ear and made Sasuke wince. "We're on in twenty!"

God, did they have to yell so loud? Sasuke was standing right next to the man with the headset and 'stage crew' shirt on and still he continued to yell into his ear as if he were deaf!

"Stupid stage crew…" he mumbled under his breath. And proceeded to where the man was pushing him to go to.

When he passed a window he got a glimpse of the sky's color. It was a luminous gray color, signaling rain, but not dark enough for it to be a thunderstorm.

Sasuke sighed. Good thing the concert had a covered stage or else their opening act might have been getting a little wet tonight.

He was told that by the time they were going to be going on, it'd be dark out. Which was good because it would create the perfect atmosphere for the show.

"On in fifteen!!"

The Uchiha smirked. They were going to blow 'Undreamed' away.

"This is taking forever!" Ino muttered under her breath, just loud enough for her companions to her but low enough for everyone else to remain oblivious.

The blonde continued to tap her foot impatiently before being jerked to her left by Sakura, who had her grabbed her arms, moving her out of the way for yet another 'Meet and Greet' group passing by them to proceed down the long walkway and into the seating area, under the sheltered roof of the concert hall.

It was getting darker and darker by the minute as the clouds overhead were starting to look like they were going to burst open and rain all over everyone in a minute.

Ino just hoped they got in there before it started to down pour.

Screams erupted and everyone turned to the indoor seating area, straining to see what all the commotion was. (A/N: If you want pictures of the concert hall, they are at the end of this chapter, just copy and paste them into your browser and you can see what it looks like.)

Sakura sighed. This was the fourth time they had done that and for what she had no clue.

"Alright!" One of the women guarding the entrance yelled. "Get into a line and show us your tickets."

Everyone made a line and showed the ladies their tickets. Ino, Sakura, Hinata and TenTen holding onto each other for dear life all the while.

As soon as they made it down into the seating area, screams broke out, giving the girls a jump start as they immediately looked to the empty stage.

"What the hell?" TenTen voiced. "Why do they keep doing that?" The other three shrugged.

"Hey, look!" Hinata said, pointing to one of the drop down screens that hung on either side of the stage. The screen was showing comments from fans and said that you could text a message on your cell and send it to the number provided.

The four watched the screen for a moment and read what it said. When the screen changed there was a moment of silence before screams rung throughout the hall once again.

The screen read: 'If you love A.A.('Apocalypse Assault') then scream until you can't anymore!'

"So that'swhy everyone keeps screaming!" TenTen yelled over the noise.

"Okay, now we find our seat." Truth be told, it hadn't been that difficult and they were now sitting down comfortably in their assigned seats. Their section was MM, seats 15-18. TenTen sat in seat 15, followed by Hinata in seat 16, Sakura was in seat 17 and Ino was sitting in seat 18, which was closest to the aisle.

As soon as they sat down it started to down pour, leaving all of the people who had lawn seats to get soaked.

"Damn," Sakura said. "That must suck to have a lawn seat."

The girls agreed and watched as everyone outside quickly unfolded umbrellas and ponchos, huddling under them to try to stay dry.

"Hey," Ino asked, getting everyone's attention. "Wanna send a text to them?"

Sakura tilted her head. "To who, the screen?" she asked and pointed to the monitor.

The blonde nodded.

TenTen shrugged. "I don't see why we can't." Ino smiled and brought out her cell phone.

"Okay, what do we want to say?" She asked when she brought up a blank text.

"Hmm…say, 'if you like 'Undreamed' as much as 'Apocalypse' then scream'"

"'Kay," the blonde said and typed out the message, sending it to the number that was displayed.

"And now we wait!" Within a few minutes their message was displayed and screams tore through the huge auditorium.

"Alright!" Sakura yelled and pumped her fist up in the air.


"Why do they keep screaming?!" Naruto yelled, covering his ears as the noise grew.

"I think they have that stupid comment page up."

"What comment page?!"

Neji rolled his eyes. "The one where you send a text of whatever you want to us and it gets displayed on the monitor."

"Oh." Was Naruto's simple reply. "Can we see the comments?"

"I don't see why not." Shikamaru shrugged. "It's not like we have anything better to do." He then went over to one of the open doorways, where he had stashed his laptop, and brought it out.

Within moments, he had finished hacking into the mainframe and was showing the group all of the comment that the screen was displaying.

Sasuke sighed, and thought of how boring this was. It wasn't until one particular comment caught his attention that he began paying attention.

It read: 'if you like 'Undreamed' as much as 'Apocalypse' then scream'

The boys listened as the auditorium roared with clamor and whooping cheers.

"Well," Sasuke said, his lips thinning. "It seems we have a few 'Undreamed' fans here tonight."

"I'll say…" Naruto muttered loud enough for them to hear.

"What I think we should do," Shikamaru started, powering down his laptop and putting it in his bag. "Is…convert them."

The four shared a smirk before they were ushered off and into their positions.


The opening act had turned out to be Avril Lavigne, and while she wasn't Sakura's favorite singer in the entire world, she enjoyed singing along, with her friends, to most of the songs the punk-ish rock star performed.

After Avril had said good bye (not before pumping up the crowd a little by asking if they were all ready for 'Apocalypse Assault') the stage crew began to make their final prep before the main act came on and did their thing.

"You guys ready?" They all turned to Sakura and gave her nods. She smiled and gave a nod of her own.

"'M'kay. Just checking." Ino smirked.

"What, don't tell me your nervous, forehead! You're not even performing!"

Sakura gave her a sheepish smile. "I guess I'm just a little too pumped up with adrenaline."

Ino opened her mouth to give another comment but was cut of when the lights dimmed to pitch black and deafening screams tore through the concert hall.

This is it. Sakura thought as her inner squealed.


Sasuke watched as another crew-member ran off at a break neck speed to get Naruto's lucky pick for his guitar.

He rolled his eyes. "Dobe, how could you forget your lucky pick?" He asked the idiot standing in front of him.

He shrugged. "D'know."

Sasuke shook his head. "On in Five!!" a man running by them yelled into his ear-piece.

This is it.

Nervous? His alter ego was mocking him.

Sasuke twitched. The hell would I be nervous about?

Oh, I don't know… His inner drawled. Maybe because you are going to be performing in front of more than 4,000 people.

He internally rolled his eyes. We've performed for more before, remember?

Yes, but were they ever supporters for them?Now that he mentioned it, Sasuke couldn't really remember. It didn't really matter anyway, this was a concert like any other they had done before there was nothing to special about it.

Probably, but does it really matter if they were or not?

Maybe. Sasuke narrowed his eyes but couldn't question further because he was soon led to the platform where his band was going to enter from.

"Have fun boys!" Kakashi said as he patted each one of their heads before he was led to the VIP section.

The lights began to dim above them and that was when they knew it was beginning.

Show time.


The girls slowly rose out of their seats and held their breath like all of the others around them had and watched the stage intently.

The music slowly began with white-noise sounds, reverberating off of the walls around them like an echo.

Electric guitars joined in with the haunting melody and then string instruments to make an accompaniment.

A few moments passed and then the music abruptly stopped. And out came the infamous 'Apocalypse Assault'.

Sakura covered her ears as the auditorium roared with applause and cheers. She looked over to Ino as she too had her fingers jammed in her ears to block out the noise. The blonde mouthed and 'Oh my god!' Before turning back to the stage.

The pink-haired girl looked over at Hinata and TenTen. The Hyuuga heiress had her pointer fingers stuffed into her ears and wincing as the volume of screams only increased. She caught TenTen's eye and shook her head when the brunette winked at her. Sakura turned back to the stage and narrowed her eyes.

They were finally here.

The band was standing on a tall platform that had two sets of stairs, the first lead to a second platform that was about a foot or two below the first and tallest. The last set of stairs led down to the actual stage.

The boys stared at the crowd for about five seconds until they raised their hands in the air, making the crowd scream louder than before.

Sakura rolled her eyes. They are so full of themselves!

Yeah, but look how sexy they are! Inner Sakura squealed. Ahh, and the lead even has pipe pants on!! God look at those sculpted calves!! They are magnificent!

Shut up!! They are our mortal enemies! How can you think about them like that?!

Easy. They are hott.

Sakura rolled her eyes.


The boys walked to their places as the music started to play. Sasuke grabbed the mic a couple of seconds before he was suppose to come in.

He smirked at the crowd and began singing.

Time of Dying

Sasuke:On the ground I lay
Motionless in pain
I can see my life flashing before my eyes
Did I fall asleep?
Is this all a dream
Wake me up, I'm living a nightmare

I will not die

Naruto:(I will not die)
Sasuke: I will survive

I will not die,

Sasuke and Naruto: I'll wait here for you
Sasuke:I feel alive,

Sasuke and Naruto: when you're beside me
Sasuke: I will not die,

Sasuke and Naruto: I'll wait here for you
In my time of dying

Sasuke: On this bed I lay
Losing everything
I can see my life passing me by
Was it all too much
Or just not enough
Wake me up, I'm living a nightmare

I will not die

Naruto: (I will not die)
Sasuke:I will survive

I will not die,

Sasuke and Naruto: I'll wait here for you
Sasuke:I feel alive,

Sasuke and Naruto: when you're beside me
Sasuke: I will not die,

Sasuke and Naruto: I'll wait here for you
In my time of dying

Neji: (Feel alive) Chants until end

Sasuke: I will not die,

Sasuke and Naruto: I'll wait here for you
Sasuke:I feel alive,

Sasuke and Naruto: when you're beside me
Sasuke: I will not die,

Sasuke and Naruto: I'll wait here for you
In my time of dying


The crowd cheered. Sakura clapped and was silently amazed at how well they could captivate their audience.


Breakdown:

Naruto: Breakdown!

Sasuke: Let the fun and games begin
She is spayed and broken in
Skin is cold and white
Such a lovely lonely night

Heaven is on the way
You can feel the hate
but I guess you never will
I'm on a roll again
and I want an end
'cause I feel it creeping in

Sasuke and Naruto: What I found in this town
I'm heading for a breakdown
What's that sound, you're so loud
I'm heading for a breakdown

Naruto: NO!

Sasuke: Drank up all my alcohol
This is not a free for all
I'll be there for you
'till my heart is

Sasuke and Naruto: black and blue

Sasuke: Heaven is on the way
You can feel the hate
but I guess you never will
I'm on a roll again
and I want an end
'cause I feel you creeping in

Sasuke and Naruto: What I found in this town
I'm heading for a breakdown
What's that sound, you're so loud
I'm heading for a breakdown

(Guitar solo by Neji)

Sasuke and Naruto: What I found in this town
I'm heading for a breakdown
What's that sound, you're so loud
I'm heading for a breakdown

You breakdown, you're so proud
I'm heading for a breakdown
What's that sound, you're so loud
I'm heading for a breakdown

Naruto: NO!


Instead of stopping, the guitar and bass player kept the melody going. Sakura watched as the lead looked the crowd over and smirked. "How is everyone tonight?" his deep resonating voice asked.

Cheers erupted. Sakura squinted her eyes in confusion. That voice kind of sounded familiar to her but she couldn't quite place it.

"We're going to be doing something a little special tonight, how's that sound?" his response was an accolade.

He chuckled. "Alright, then." A man with a 'Crew Member' shirt on came out on the stage carrying a bucket of what looked to be drumsticks and placed them in front the lead guitarist.

"We're going to see how many sticks our drummer can catch. I'll need everyone to count with me, okay?"

The lead singer nodded to the drummer, who was sitting up on the highest platform where his drum-set was.

"Ready?" The lead singer asked as he watched the lead guitarist pick up a stick and getting ready to throw it at the drummer. "One…Two…Three!"

The stick was launched high into the air. A second later it landed in the drummer's hand and the crowd went wild.

"Alright! Again!" The same trick was performed two more times, the second time the drummer missed but the third time he caught it and started to play with them.


Sasuke grabbed his mic off of it's stand and went over to the backstage area and grabbed a stool, Neji and Naruto following suit as Shikamaru went over to grab his violin, Neji's viola and Naruto's acoustic guitar.

They walked down the stage and onto the island that branched off of it and set their stools down. Shikamaru handed Naruto his guitar and sat down on a stool close to Sasuke.

"Who hear wants to hear a new song?!" Naruto yelled into his microphone. And then grinned when the auditorium went nuts.

Naruto fingered a few strings and then started a melody, followed by Neji and Shikamaru.

Sasuke tapped his thigh to keep the tempo.

Gotta Find You: (A/N: Shut up! I love this song! Lol.)

Sasuke:Every time I think I'm closer to the heart
Of what it means to know just who I am
I think I've finally found a better place to start
But no one ever seems to understand

I need to try to get to where you are
Could it be you're not that far?

Sasuke and Naruto: You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason that I'm singing
I need to find you
I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
The song inside of me
I need to find you
Sasuke: I gotta find you
Oh yeah

Yeah, Yeah

Sasuke: You're the remedy I'm searchin' hard to find
To fix the puzzle that I see inside
Painting all my dreams the color of your smile
When I find you it will be alright

I need to try to get to where you are
Could it be you're not that far?

Sasuke and Naruto: You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason that I'm singing
I need to find you
I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
The song inside of me
I need to find you
Sasuke: I gotta find you

Been feeling lost
Cant find the words to say
Spendin' all my time stuck in yesterday
Where you are is where I wanna be
Oh next to you, and you next to me
Ohh...
I need to find you
Yeah

Sasuke and Naruto: You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason that I'm singing

I need to find you

Neji: (I need to find you)
I gotta find you

Neji: (yeah, yeah)
You're the missing piece I need
The song inside of me
I need to find you
Sasuke: I gotta find you

Neji: (I gotta find you)

Sasuke and Naruto: You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason that I'm singing
I need to find you

Neji: (I need to find you)
I gotta find you

Neji: (I gotta find you)
Your the missing piece I need
The song inside of me
I need to find you
I gotta find you
Sasuke:Yeaeaahhh
I gotta find you...


Okay, the guitarist's voice defiantly sounded familiar. But again, Sakura (for the life of her) couldn't place it with a specific face. And it was killing her!!

Why did she have to have a brain block now?! Ugh, of all places, too!

"Do you recognize that voice?" Ino leaned in and asked her while clapping politely.

She shook her head. "No, but it sounds familiar, doesn't it?" Ino nodded and went back to watching the show.


As soon as they finished, they immediately got up and raced back onto the main stage. Naruto handed his acoustic guitar, along with Shikamaru's violin, to the stage man and grabbed the electric guitar he was handed.

Neji followed suit and joined Naruto and Sasuke on the stage while Shikamaru raced up to his drums.

Sasuke began to sing.

Cold:

Sasuke: Looking back at me I see
That I never really got it right
I never stopped to think of you
I'm always wrapped up in
Things I cannot win
Sasuke and Naruto: You are the antidote that gets me by
Something strong
Like a drug that gets me high

Sasuke, Naruto and Neji: What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
Neji: I never meant to be so cold
Never meant to be so cold

Sasuke: To you, I'm sorry about all the lies
Sasuke and Naruto: Maybe in a different light
Sasuke: You could see me stand on my own again
Cause now I can see
Sasuke and Naruto: You were the antidote that got me by
Something strong like a drug that got me high

Sasuke, Naruto and Neji: What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
Neji: I never meant to be so cold
Never meant to be so cold

I never meant to be so cold

Sasuke, Naruto and Neji: I never really wanted you to see
The screwed up side of me that I keep
Locked inside of me so deep
It always seems to get to me
I never really wanted you to go
So many things you should have known
I guess for me there's just no hope
I never meant to be so cold

Sasuke, Naruto and Neji: What I really meant to say
Is I'm sorry for the way I am

Naruto: (I'm sorry for the way)
Neji: I never meant to be so cold
Never meant to be so cold

Starless:

Neji: If only you could watch me fall
I cannot feel it anymore
The soul you cut the soul you adore
Cannot feel you anymore
Cause you've run through me with destructive force
I think somehow I gotta get it straight
I gotta get you out of me
But I cannot get through to you

Neji and Naruto: See me I'm down and I get deeper with every breath
See me I'm over the edge farther with every step
See me I'm down and I get deeper with every breath
Standing over the edge I'm taking my last breath

Sasuke, Naruto and Neji: How I feel like I'm starless
I'm ready to fade now
And how I feel like I'm starless
I'm hopeless and grayed out
Somehow I feel like I'm starless
I'm ready to fade now
And now I feel like I'm starless
I'm ready to burn out

Neji and Naruto: I can transcend you and mentally bend you
But I can't handle the shit that I'm into
I have been blinded and always reminded
Of the things I've wanted but I never could find
I am a part of a world that I hate I wish the
End would come faster my world's a disaster
Can't you see that I'm down and I'm drowning
And I can't keep my head above my wake

See me I'm down and I get deeper with every breath
See me I'm over the edge farther with every step
See me I'm down and I get deeper with every breath
Standing over the edge I'm taking my last breath

Sasuke, Naruto and Neji: How I feel like I'm starless
I'm ready to fade now
And how I feel like I'm starless
I'm hopeless and grayed out
Somehow I feel like I'm starless
I'm ready to fade now
And now I feel like I'm starless
I'm ready to burn out

Sasuke: I gotta get you out of my veins
Naruto: I gotta get you out of my blood
Neji and Naruto:I gotta get you out of my scene
I gotta get you out of me duet

Neji: What I'm really trying hard to get down to words
Is the way I fit into this world
Things I survived pushed me to the darker side
Because of life as it was the life that was
Yours should've never been mine
But I never could take anymore of this
Cause I'm always gonna get gonna get down to the floor
It's a cold gun that I kiss
'Cause I cannot break anymore

Somehow I feel like I'm starless
Sasuke, Naruto and Neji: I'm ready to fade now
Sasuke and Naruto: That's how I feel when I'm starless
Neji: I'm hopeless and grayed out
Sasuke and Naruto: Somehow I feel like I'm starless
Sasuke, Naruto and Neji: I'm ready to burn out oh
Now I'm starless

Collapse:

Naruto: So, tell me is it right?
Naruto and Sasuke: To feel like we're only getting smaller
Naruto: And it's so hard to fight

Naruto and Sasuke:The feeling
But I'm only treading water
Naruto: We've made a few mistakes, it's not worth it to say

Naruto, Sasuke, Neji and Shikamaru: We are far from the town

(When they sang this part they pumped they're hands -during each individual word- in the air and motioned for the crowd to do it as well)

Naruto, Sasuke and Neji: 'Cause we are the only ones, we will get up
And we are aware, 'cause we've been through it
'Cause we are the only ones, we will carry each other on our own

Naruto:Believe

Naruto and Sasuke:The sound, When the truth will send you falling
Naruto: You see the lights? But

Naruto and Sasuke: Your mind isn't open
Naruto:Now I hear you calling
We've made a few mistakes, it's not worth it to say

Naruto, Sasuke, Neji and Shikamaru: We are far from the town

(When they sang this part they pumped they're hands -during each individual word- in the air and motioned for the crowd to do it as well)

Naruto, Sasuke and Neji: 'Cause we are the only ones, we will get up
And we are aware, 'cause we've been through it
'Cause we are the only ones, we will carry each other on our own

Naruto and Sasuke: Open your eyes and let all the light in
Open your eyes up a little more, I'm sure the rest will come out

Naruto, Sasuke and Neji: 'Cause we are the only ones, we will get up
And we are aware, 'cause we've been through it
'Cause we are the only ones, we will carry each other on our own

Open your eyes and let all the light in
Open your eyes up a little more, I'm sure the rest will come out


"Oh My god!" Sakura exclaimed when the lead singer ran over to the lead guitarist and (after setting his instrument down) held his foot in the air, counted down and helped him do a front flip.

On Stage!!

"He just did a flip!" Way to state the obvious TenTen

Hey don't get grouchy at her because you're secretly jealous that A.A. just did a flip on stage while at your concert you did nothing!

"He just did another one!!" Hinata yelled pointing as the lead singer did a cart wheel and then front flipped over the lead guitarist when he crouched down.

The nerve of them!! Who the hell do they think they are!?

Well they are the most popular band in the entire country and maybe even the entire world…next to us of course.

"Holy crap!" Ino yelled as the Bass player somersaulted over the lead guitarist and the lead vocalist. "They're crazy!"

"They're nuts…" Sakura muttered under her breath.


"Thank you! We hope you all attend our next concert!" Naruto yelled into the microphone when the cheering reached a level where Sasuke had to wince it was so loud.

Damn, they love us!

You got that right.

All four boys took a bow and then casually jogged back stage.

They had done a couple more song and then ended their performance for the night. All four were equally exhausted and were glad it was Saturday and had the rest of the day tomorrow to recover before school started up again on Monday.

"Ahhh…I think they want an encore!" Naruto sighed with a large satisfactory smile on his lips.

Sasuke smirked. "Not tonight, Dobe. I think Hyuuga's going to faint."

Neji rolled his eyes.

"Good performance, gentleman!" Kakashi said when he strolled over to the quartet.

"I'm just glad tomorrow's Sunday!"

Sasuke raised an eyebrow. "Why, you looking forward to the morning cartoons?"

Naruto stuck his tongue out.


No one spoke as they walked to the bus stop. There wasn't anything to say really, except the fact that 'Apocalypse Assault' had been amazing tonight.

"So," Ino started off awkwardly. "What now…?"

"I don't know." TenTen replied softly and gave a vague shrug of her shoulders.

"I think we'll have to talk to Anko about this." Hinata suggested. The pink haired girl shook her head; doubting that talking to their manager would do any good at this point.

Because the fact was- she'd been blown away. The whole show had captivated her attention and she couldn't have look away at any given moment. 'Apocalypse Assault' had said that they were going to make up for the lost time that had given 'Undreamed Visions' the lead in their'Musical Induced Arms Race'. And they had done just that.

Sakura sighed. They'd defiantly need to step up their game.


Author's Note: Yay! Finally done! Almost 30 pages!! Longest one yet! I'm on a roll! Anyways, I hoped you liked it! I'll be updating A Dreamscapehopefully before I start school again so wish me luck! XD

(1) Basically means 'Pinky'

(2) Basically means 'Pinky'

(3) That's the name given for the 'Kage' of Rain. Pein had overthrown the original leader because he was corrupted and was creating a downfall for the village. Under Pein's rule now, Rain is very prosperous and doing very well. He has allied himself with Konaha and created a triangular trade for his village with Sand and Konaha.

(4) Itachi was named Pein's successor if he were to ever die (it is written his will when he had to create it at the age of 35 after he had a heart attack. He and Konan are now 38). Pein was originally going to name Sakura as his next heir but she refused the position saying that she wouldn't be able to lead an entire gang. She then later suggested that Itachi would be more fit for the position and he was then named the next heir.

(5) I'm sure most of you have seen this picture already but for those who haven't: Just got to my photobucket account (it's on my profile). It's labeled as 'Sasuke and Sakura: hair'
