Ch.1 New Missions

Uchiha Itachi was walking through the village, in high spirits. Today was his first day as being part of the ANBU. He was proud. He had been looking forward to this day ever since he was a little boy. As he walked throught the Uchiha district, he remembered what his father said to him the other day.

"You are the link that holds the Uchiha clan and the village together, make no mistake, Itachi. Your mother and I are very proud of you. Pray do not disappoint us."

He wondered what it all meant.

He knew he was the Uchiha prodigy and all, but he couldn't understand what his father was trying to tell him.

As he walked out of the compound, he ran into his friends and colleagues.

"Wow, Itachi-san! You're in ANBU now! That's got to be the best-ranked ninjas there is!" cried his aunt as she went through the compound.

"Thank you."


"Are you sure, Homura?" asked Minato for the last time.

"Affirmative. The Uchiha clan are planning a coup d'etat." As Minato heard those words, he put his face in his hands.

"HIYAARRRGH!" cried a small boy of around six. He tumbled out of the doorway. He had blue eyes and blond hair, just like the Yondaime Hokage.

Minato greeted the young boy. "Hello, Naru-chan."

The boy called Naruto pouted. "Stop calling me that. Only mom calls me that." And with that, Kushina came through the doorway.

"Sorry, dear. Naruto is so fast, you see and-"

"Don't tell me. What has he done now."

"Um, you better take a look at this."

Minato walked across the room and turned to the village elder. "This can wait for now. Please write a full report on it. I'll give the matter my full attention."

And with that, he grabbed a struggling Naruto and walked, hand in hand with Kushina, out of the office.


"From now on, your codename will be Weasel." stated the ANBU captain, Hatake Kakashi.

Bowing, Itachi left the room.

He had a lot of things on his mind. First out of all of them was his younger brother, Sasuke. He would be training with their father at this time.

Itachi wondered if his brother finally mastered the Fireball Jutsu, a trademark of his clan.

He walked out of the ANBU building and into the street.

Itachi sighed. He was extremely bored, and he had nothing to do. In a few hours, he would have to start his bodyguard mission.

Grumbling, he got up and went to the dango shop. Most of his friends were there.

Unluckily for him, he bumped into Shisui.

"YO! Heard that you got into the ANBU, Itachi! I hope we get assigned the same mission!"

"Hn." Itachi truly was a man of few words. I wish Shisui would just go away sometimes. He can be trying.

Shisui was arm in arm with Itachi, walking down the street.

"So, Itachi. What're you going to do today?" asked Shisui.

I hope this works. "Oh will you look at the time," he said fakely, pointing at his watch. "I'm late for my next assignment."

Leaving Shisui in the middle of the road, he dashed off to the Hyuga compound.

"Damn, I'm thirty minutes early." he noticed, looking at his watch.

He didn't notice where he was going, and accidentally bumped into a little girl. The girl shrieked.

"Gomen-" he began. He pulled the girl onto her feet.

And looked into her pearly-white eyes.


Who is the girl that Uchiha Itachi bumped into? Will the Uchiha clan be able to pull off their secret plan? And what's brewing behind all the chaos? Tune in to find out!
