Chapter 1

On a moonlight night in the Village Hidden in the Leaves, a Sand Village Ninja by the name of Gaara sat on top of a roof.

"Why aren't you asleep?" he heard a voice asked him. He looked down to see Dosu, a ninja from the Village Hidden in the Sound. "I was hoping I could kill you in your sleep, so that I could fight Sasuke Uchiha."

"Coming here was mistake…" said Gaara."…and it will be your final mistake."

"Oh I'm so scared" said Dosu in mock frightened voice. But in the next minute he ended up having a good reason to be scared. His eyes widened in horror as Gaara turned into some sort of creature.

About a minute later, Dosu's screams echoed though the night.

From a distance, Baki, Gaara's sensei, Kabuto, a Sound Village spy posing as a Leaf Village Ninja, and a mysterious man in a black cloak watched from a distance as Gaara killed Dosu.

"So he's the Sand Village trump card" said Kabuto.

"Interesting" said the cloaked man.

"I apologize for Gaara killing one ninja" Baki said to Kabuto.

"It's alright" said Kabuto. "As long as the Sand Village keeps their end of the bargain."

"Don't worry, we don't plan on backing out of the invasion" said Baki.

"What about you?" Kabuto asked the cloaked man.

"Don't worry I assure you that Organization XIII will keep their end of the bargain" said the cloak man. "Oh and by the way, we seem to have a quest."

At the moment, Hayate, a Leaf Village Ninja, realized that they knew he was spying on them. From what he heard, he knew he had to hurry and warn the Hokage.

"Don't worry, I take of our spy" said Kabuto.

"No let me do it" said the cloaked man. "To show Organization XIII's good will in our agreement." Then he disappeared in a shroud of darkness.

As Hayate ran and jumped from roof to roof, he stopped in surprise when the cloak appeared in front of him out of a shroud of darkness that appeared out of no where.

"Sorry, but I can't allow you to interfere" said the cloaked man. The next thing Hayate knew, he was surrounded by different kinds of Heartless. Hayate began striking down the Heartless one by one. But for everyone he killed, he seemed liked some more would be summoned up. Hayate figured his best chance was to go for the cloaked man. But he couldn't reach the cloaked man. The Heartless were over powering Hayate. They were soon piled on top of him and he couldn't get out. Then he felt strange as he felt a Heartless reached into him and began to remove his heart.

As Sora, Donald, and Goofy brought their Gummi ship in for a landing, they were excited about the prospect of seeing Naruto and his team again. They also hoped they could find the item they need that would open a path that would lead them closer to the lair of Organization XIII. But what Sora hoped the most was that they could find some trace of Riku. So far they had met up with King Mickey at Hallow Bastion, but there was still no sign of Riku.

As the trio entered the Hidden Leaf Village, it looked like some sort of festival was going on.

"Whoa/Wow" were their reactions as they walked around and saw all the lights of the festival and all there was to do. It made them want to stop and have some fun. Then they spotted what looked a ramen stand, so they decided to get something to eat, since they were feeling kind of hungry. As soon as they went over to the ramen stand, they spotted a familiar ninja team.

"Hey Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi!" Sora called to Team 7. The team looked over to see Sora, Donald, and Goofy.

"Sora! Donald! Goofy!" said Naruto excitedly at the sight of his new friends that he made back during the mission to the Land of Waves.

"Yo" Kakashi greeted them.

"It's good to see you guys again" said Sakura.

Sasuke just smirked.

"What have you guys been up to?" Sora asked. "Did Tazuna finish his bridge?"

"Yes, and Tazuna and his family are fine" answered Kakashi.

"That's good to know" said Sora.

"Sasuke and I are in the finals for the Chunin Exams" Naruto said in excitement.

"What are these Chew-nin Exams?" asked Goofy.

Then Kakashi explained to them how in this world, ninja are divided into ranks and in order advance in rank, a ninja must take exams and meet certain requirement. He also explained how the Chunin exams worked. The team had passed the first two parts of the exam, but unlike Naruto and Sasuke, Sakura didn't make it pass the preliminaries.

"I'm sure you'll get it next time Sakura" said Goofy to reassure the pink-haired girl.

So then Sora, Donald, and Goofy decided that they could stay to watch the third part of the exam to cheer Naruto and Sasuke on. They figured that maybe it wouldn't hurt to stop and have a little fun. So Naruto invited them to stay the fight at his place and the stay the night at his apartment so they could all go to the tournament together tomorrow. The trio took Naruto up on his offer. But little did they know there was a great evil working behind scenes of what they thought would be a good time.
