Kanna led the way to the next stop on the list, Kiri. She talked with her fellow ambassadors about how to handle Kiri nin. Both Girls found it interesting what Kanna was saying. Kakashi confirmed her every detail. It seemed that Kanna knew Kiri better then Kakashi. That surprised everyone, even Temari. Kakashi asked how she knew so much. She told him that her father sent her everywhere on business. She told them that she has been an ambassador for about six years. They were all impressed. Naruto didn't get the political part of it, but he understood the time she spent on her job.
Once in Kiri, the nin took a break. They spoke very little and mostly slept. When they were all ready, the went to see the Mizukage. It turned out the the Mizukage was doing the same thing. Only they hadn't sent out any ambassadors yet. That made things very easy for Kanna, Temari and Sakura. The Mizukage sent an ambassador of their own to accompany the others. It was also a female, by the name of Hoshi.
The group then went to Kumo. There they had no success. The Raikage saw them, but quickly turned down the plan. Kanna knew that he was set in his ways. The others wanted to try and change his mind. Kanna convinced them it was hopeless and they left, downhearted. Hoshi also knew it was hopeless and helped Kanna prove her point. Luckily, Kanna had contacted a friend in Iwa. While she was busy here, he was setting it up with the Tsuchikage. He told her via a letter that it was all good on his end.
Kanna told everyone that they could now go home. Hoshi nodded and was off. Temari stayed with the Konoha nin. Kanna went home. Among the letter from her friend, she ot one her father telling her to hurry home. She did, knowing her father was not one any one could go against, not even her own mother. Kanna told Temari to say hello to Gaara for her. Then she left with one last joke.
Kanna arrived home at midnight that very night. Her father was waiting impatiently for her. Her mother and the rest of her father's followers were inside the house. They all eyed her as they always did. But said or did nothing more, afraid of her father's wrath. Kanna sat down beside her mother and father.
"Pein, are we ready yet?" Kanna asked her father.
"Yes daughter, we are. The first target is one you can help us with. The new Kazekage, Sabaku no Gaara." Konan spoke this time.
Kanna's eyes widened. She didn't want to disobey her father, but she didn't want to have a hand in Gaara's death either. She chose now, in front of her father and the rest of the Akatsuki, to stand up. She stood up and looked at her father. He looked at her, waiting for her reason.
"No, I will not help you kill my friend. He is the best friend I ever had. If you're going to kill him, you will have to kill me first. If you don't-"
Pein, having no mercy or love, killed her. It was then that the Akatsuki realized just how evil and fearful their leader really was. Konan felt immediate grief and sorrow, but she knew better then to repeat her daughter's actions. She loved her daughter, but she loved herself more. Pein shortly sent Deidara and Sasori after Gaara.
I don't own Naruto. Sorry for the short story and chapter. Sorry for the sad ending, but I couldn't think of a good ending and wanting to end the story, so I came up with this.
