"…We were together last spring…You left me during summer…All through out fall I was crying…and by winter…I was all alone…with nothing left…but our memories together…"

There were screams everywhere as they entered their enemy's border. He watched as everyone in that village scampered in all directions trying to avoid their bullets and slashes. He watched as his comrades and he kill those women. Those women who would have had been dreaming of a peaceful family. He watched as he killed those children, those children who would have had a dream for a better future for their parents, friends, for the others and themselves. He fired to the two children who were running whilst holding hands. Siblings perhaps, he thought. He didn't want this but it was an order, a direct order from the general that damned general. The next thing he knew he was surrounded by dead and lifeless people and a cry of victory wrung in his ears as he saw his comrades raise their weapons in success. They were victorious their enemy was no more. But so were the dreams of those children that didn't have the chance to learn and grow.

Uchiha Sasuke dug his hands inner to his coat pockets. He wore a long black coat that covered the dark blue shirt he was wearing and the pair of black pants. He ignored all the lustful and love-struck gazes thrown at him and continued walking along the ship. It was the crisp of September 19th 1874 and his hands were nearly freezing from the coldness. He angrily reprimanded himself for forgetting his gloves at this kind of time.

He looked ahead as they were nearing towards their destination, Japan. He was sent here to train the newbie soldiers. He frowned when he was told that he should prepare them in fighting those Samurai rebels. Apparently those Samurais do not want to accept the new government that Japan was planning. They still believe in their old, foolish and ignorant ways of living.

It was all about honor and nothing more.

He scowled at that thought. They are truly foolish and with that thought embedded in his mind the ship ducked to the country of Japan. He strode past those people who are still taking in the site of Japan's market. He jumped from the ship and onto the cold pavement floor and took his time by observing Japan.

There were many people here indeed. There were women dressed in the traditional kimonos whilst the men already wore the new Western clothes that were introduced to them. The stores were open and customers flocked in each of those. There was a shop for clothes and he spared a glance at those women trying in the western clothing displayed. There was also a shop for accessories and jewelries.

"Uchiha Sasuke-san!" cried a voice as Sasuke turned around to look for the source of that voice and saw a plump man wearing brown polo and gray pants with polished black leather shoes and a camera with him running towards him all the while waving his hand. He raised an eyebrow at said person and waited for the latter to catch up with him.

"Uchiha Sasuke-san," he greeted whilst bowing, "I am John Graham the photographer from Britain and we were supposed to meet at near the ship but I didn't find you there and then I saw you wandering around."

Sasuke totally forgot that he was indeed supposed to meet this man because he was too preoccupied in knowing this place, not that he would admit it in front of this man. Sasuke did a curt nod before replying, "Ah, Mr. Graham it's a pleasure to meet you."

Said man nodded excitedly and continued talking, "Sasuke-san I shall be your interpreter while you are training those new soldiers. I was also allowed to take pictures of anything I see here that has caught my attention."

Sasuke didn't reply it was not as if he felt that he needed to. When the man saw that Sasuke wasn't going to give him any reply he talked again, "So…Shall we go now?"

Sasuke slightly nodded and let the man beside him guide him. He wasn't really listening as the man continued to introduce him to everything and everyone he knew that they met. The man called John Graham continued to talk and talk.

"Those women who have painted their faces as white as the grain of rice and wore long traditional kimonos are called geisha's while those…"

Sasuke felt his mind drift of. He closed his eyes lightly and walked with ease. It wasn't long before they arrived at the training site. He was led to a room with dark brown and newly-polished oak doors. Upon entering the room he was greeted by two familiar faces.

"Sasuke-kuuuuuun!" cried the woman with long light blonde hair and attached herself to Sasuke's arms. He stepped to his left in order to avoid her. He was already used to this in fact he was always greeted by this damned woman like this every single time they meet. Said woman was wearing purple shirt and black mini-skirt with shorts underneath it. She also wore fishnets in her legs and had a gun in her right side.

"Ino, I don't think you should be bothering Sasuke-san right now," reprimanded a man with silver spiky hair and had a mask around his face and the only thing that was shown was his eyes. His face was buried with a red pocket book as he scolded the woman named Ino lightly yep, same old Kakashi. He gently put his book down and greeted Sasuke too.

"Yo. Long time no see, eh?" he greeted while Sasuke gave him a curt nod as an acknowledgement.

"I am aware that you are all old companions," said a man seated in the table. The man had long black hair and snake-like eyes. He has this malicious smirk painted upon his face that would clearly suggest that he is not normal and highly dangerous. The man's pale hands were rested among the table as he flipped some documents in the folder before him.

"Yes," replied Sasuke.

"I am Orochimaru the Head of Council Advisor of the Emperor. It is a pleasure to meet you, Uchiha Sasuke-san. I have heard many great things about you."

"Same," was Sasuke's reply. He made a mental note to stay away from this man. Not only does he look like insane and a snake but a pedophile as well. It was just his instincts but his instincts never failed him. Not once, not never.

"Well then if you shall show him his room and the rest of the new battalion, Kakashi-san if you would follow him Sasuke-san."

Both person nodded and led Sasuke out of the room. Once outside Kakashi started to speak, "So, Sasuke what would you like to see first your room or the battalion?"

Sasuke smirked in reply, "Don't ask questions in which answers you already know."

Kakashi chuckled lightly then said, "Off to meeting the battalion then."

With that said he walked down the flight of the stairs and onto the unsurprisingly large grounds. Sasuke looked around. The soldiers were currently practicing under the command of a white-haired man that had his hair in a ponytail and had glasses. He was wearing the usual general uniform. Midnight blue from head to foot and yellow patterns on the shoulder blades side and in front too.

Kakashi walked towards the man and Sasuke followed.

"Kabuto-san," greeted Kakashi.

Kabuto turned towards them and smiled which in Sasuke's opinion was more like a smirk and sneer combined. He seems as dangerous as the Orochimaru is but he doubted that he was also a pedophile.

"Kakashi-san," he greeted back.

Kakashi chuckled lightly before urging Sasuke to stand beside him.

"Kabuto, this is Uchiha Sasuke the new captain and trainer. He has come all the way from New York to help us in fighting the rebels."

Kabuto looked at him before replying, "Uchiha Sasuke, eh? Right the 24 year old genius who is already a pro when it comes to wars and trainings. A great Uchiha indeed, living your family's name are you?"

Sasuke frowned at this guy slightly. He was indeed dangerous for him to know much information. Sasuke "hn'd" in agreement to all the information.

After dinner Sasuke went straight to bed early knowing he won't get enough of it because of all those nightmares. Sasuke sighed comfortably in his bed and his eyes solely closed and his mind sent to memory and nightmare lane. He shifted in his bed as the same old dream came up to him.

There were screams everywhere as they entered their enemy's border. He watched as everyone in that village scampered in all directions trying to avoid their bullets and slashes. He watched as his comrades and he kill those women. Those women who would have had been dreaming of a peaceful family. He watched as he killed those children, those children who would have had a dream for a better future for their parents, friends, for the others and themselves. He fired to the two children who were running whilst holding hands. Siblings perhaps, he thought. He didn't want this but it was an order, a direct order from the general that damned general. The next thing he knew he was surrounded by dead and lifeless people and a cry of victory wrung in his ears as he saw his comrades raise their weapons in success. They were victorious their enemy was no more. But so were the dreams of those children that didn't have the chance to learn and grow.

"Fire!"

Bullets were fired in the same direction but not even one has shot the target in the middle. Hell, not even one bullet grazed over the four corners of the target. Sasuke growled in annoyance, these men really needed practice and training. Perhaps a year before they could be sent into the field.

"Well at least their firing in the same direction," chirped Kakashi as he saw Sasuke's annoyed face.

He walked over to one man and held his shoulders lower and pointed his gun a bit lower too, "Lower your arms like this and shoot," he ordered while Kiba happily translated it to the man. The latter nodded and lowered his arms a bit then fired. The bullet gracefully landed into the middle and straight to the target. The man looked at him happily before bowing in thanks and returning his gaze to the target.

"Well, well, well!" he heard a voice cry.

They all turned around and saw Kabuto together with Orochimaru.

"It seems that they are ready for battle now aren't they?" asked the sneering Kabuto, "We shall send them to the field tonight near the trees Oto."

Sasuke merely scowled. "I don't think that that's the best idea Kabuto-san."

"And may I ask why?" asked Kabuto looking over at him.

"They are not yet ready."

"Nonsense! Of course they are ready," stated Kabuto.

"Prove it to me then, Kabuto-san," said Sasuke.

"Well, prove to me they aren't," was Kabuto's reply.

Sasuke walked towards the target and held out his gun and said to Mr. Graham, "Tell this man to shoot me and if he doesn't I will kill him."

Mr. Graham looked incredulously at Sasuke. "Wha-What? Why?" he questioned.

"Tell him!" barked Sasuke as he in front of the target. He watched as Mr. Graham immediately translated it to the man who looks as incredulous as Mr. Graham was and shook his head.

"Shoot me!" cried Sasuke.

The man continued to shake his head as sweat began making its way to the man's face. When Sasuke saw that this man really wouldn't bulge he readied his pistol.

"Shoot me or I shoot you!" he repeated his order again.

The man was obviously shaking now. Every eye was on the both of them.

"For fuck's sake," murmured Sasuke as he shot the man near his feet.

There were shouts of surprise.

"Shoot me!" he screamed yet again as he continued shooting as a threat to the man. The man was now loading his gun.

"Faster!" screamed Sasuke as he shot yet again.

When the man finally shot at Sasuke because of pressure it was over head. Sasuke calmly placed his gun to his side again and walked over to the man and patted him in the shoulders and stood in front of Kabuto.

"They're not ready," he stated calmly.

Kabuto looked at him then shouted, "You all are to be sent to the trees in Oto tonight. You will start going there when dusk begins to fall. For the meantime train more!"

Sasuke looked at him and was about to protest when Kabuto beat him to it, "Uchiha-san you are the captain of this battalion and you shall lead them to it tonight and I happened to be the general so all of my orders are followed even by you."

With that said he left together with Orochimaru.

"Shit," was all Sasuke could say as he watched the two walk away.
