Hi there, everyone!!! I am SOOOOOO sorry for the late update, I was planning on having this up earlier, but I got sick a few days ago, and could only do it now… Anyway, a very special thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this whole story, be it by reviewing, favoriting, or giving me ideas. You guys rock!!!!
In any case, here's the new chapter. Enjoy!!!
Disclaimer: I don't own the show Naruto, or any of its characters. I do, however, own my OC, Sasha, and Bri Nara owns her OC, Bri.
Everyone looked over at Tobi, who, sure enough, looked back with a different aura around him. No longer was he the fun-loving, carefree Akatsuki member that the others had come to know. Now he looked determined, and his only visible eye was glowing bright red.
"What's the matter with you?" Hidan asked, noticing the difference in Tobi's behaviour.
"I advise you to show him more respect, Hidan." Said Pein.
"Yeah, like that'll ever happen! I've never shown respect to anybody, what makes you think I'm gonna start with this twerp?"
"Maybe because "this twerp", as you called him, is the real Leader of the Akatsuki." I said, without looking at him.
"You can't be serious, un!"
"I am serious. He is the one who created the Akatsuki in the first place."
"But what about Pein?" Sasori asked, still unsure of what to make of all of this.
This time, it was Madara who spoke. (AN: From now on, I'm gonna start referring to Tobi as Madara. Just a little heads-up.) "Pein is actually my second-in-command. I decided all of the plans, and he was the one who gave you all the orders."
"Wait, wait, wait!!! Just hang on a second, un!!!! Can someone explain to me what the hell is going on?"
"Very well. I do believe a few explanations are in order." Said Madara, and he began to tell them everything: the early years of the Uchiha clan, the constant rivalry with his brother, him obtaining the Mangekyo Sharingan, the fights with the Senju clan, the founding of the Leaf Village, how Hashirama Senju became the first Hokage, how he then left the Village and became a missing nin, how he came back and tried to destroy Konoha, and how he trained Itachi for the Uchiha massacre. He told them everything, right down to the present.
When Madara was done explaining, everyone froze. But Deidara looked like a wide-eyed statue.
"Deidara?" Sasori asked.
"Sempai?" Bri poked Deidara's head. He tipped over.
Then he got up, went to the wall, and started hitting himself, while ending every word with a very loud BAM. "How" BAM "did I not" BAM "see" BAM "this coming" BAM "UN?!"
Bri sweatdropped. "Give him an hour; he'll be fine eventually..."
"But I still don't get it… if you're our boss, why the fuck haven't you shown yourself?"
Madara shrugged. "Because, it's a lot easier to see how everything is going from the inside, while nobody knows about it."
"And that's where Tobi came in." said Kisame.
"But there's one thing I've always wanted to ask you… why Tobi? Why make his personality like that?" I asked, sorta confused.
Madara shrugged again. "It was the first thing that came into my mind, and I thought it would be perfect to go with a personality that would be the complete opposite of my own. Plus…" he glanced over at Deidara. "It gave an excellent opportunity to annoy everyone, especially Deidara."
The room exploded with laughter, and Deidara stopped banging his head against the wall to look at Madara.
"I'M GONNA KILL YOU!!!!!!" He then lunged forward, but was stopped by Bri and me.
"That not exactly the smartest thing to do, Sempai." Bri said.
"Why not, un?"
"Remember when you faced Itachi's Sharingan?" I asked him. Deidara winced, the memories of that day still haunting him, but nodded. "Well, Madara's is way more powerful."
Deidara sighed, and sat back down.
"OK, so now what?"
"Well, I think I have an idea to get you all back into the Narutoverse. I just need to talk with Bri, Madara and Itachi first, and then see about trying it out."
"Then what do we do in the meantime?"
I shrugged. "Just find something to do, like watch TV, or something. There are some good shows on, and we'll only take a minute."
As I closed the door, I could hear Kisame saying: "Hey, Hidan, you up for another round of that game?" I mentally sighed and prepared to tell my idea.
"So, what's the plan?"
"Well, I was thinking that, since it was a Sharingan ninjutsu that got you guys here, the same thing could bring you back to your world, and put you back into your original bodies."
"Makes sense. But what exactly do we do?" asked Itachi.
"Well, that was just an idea… Don't you guys know any kind of time and space jutsus?" asked Bri.
"There is something we could try… It's kinda dangerous, since I've never done anything like this with anyone, but… we could try one of my abilities, the teleportation using the Mangekyo Sharingan."
"Will it really work with so many people?"
"In theory, it could, as long as none of us get separated during the teleportation." Madara explained.
"And what's my part in all of this?" asked Itachi.
"I won't be able to carry that many people on my own. You need to learn the technique too, so that you can teleport out of here too."
I also had a question for Madara, but Bri beat me to it. "What about us?"
"Well, once we get back, we are going to get revenge on the Leaf for what they did to us. We need spies inside the Village, who can tell us its weak points, who all the ninja are, stuff like that. None of the current members can do it, because we are all listed as missing nins in the Bingo book. We need new spies, ones that have the information we need."
"I'm offering this job to you two. What do you say? It would mean leaving all of this behind, and…"
"WE'LL TAKE IT!!!!" we both shouted at the same time.
"Are you sure? It would mean giving up on the life you both already have here, not to mention your families…" said Itachi.
"We both live by ourselves, and the only thing tying us here is school, so…"
"Very well. We shall leave in the morning."
We nodded, and left the room to the Uchihas, so that they could train on the Teleportation technique.
Bri went to find Kisame and Hidan still trying to play the game, and Kisame had gotten pretty good at it, and laughed every time he saw his moves on the screen.
I went to the living room, where Deidara and Sasori were watching a comedian on TV doing a skit with puppets. Sasori didn't think it was particularly funny, because he thought it was a huge disrespect towards puppets. Deidara, however, thought it was the funniest thing ever. That is, until the comedian brought out the next puppet, which was supposed to be a dead terrorist. At this point, Deidara got mad, and threw the TV remote at the TV.
"What's wrong, Deidara?" asked Sasori, seeming amused.
Deidara then mumbled something under his breath, and turned away from the TV.
I chuckled and entered the room.
"I just wanted to let you guys know, To- I mean, Madara came up with a plan and we should be back to the Narutoverse tomorrow."
Deidara immediately stopped frowning, and turned towards me. "What do you mean "we"?"
"Me and Bri are going with you. Apparently the Akatsuki needs more spies."
His face lit up. "Awesome! Does that mean you guys are gonna be ninjas?"
"Maybe, I don't know. I guess we'll have to wait and see."
Finally, it came the time for all the members to gather in the living room, and try out Madara's plan.
"So, what exactly are we supposed to do?" asked Hidan, looking excited to finally be able to return to his old body.
"We need to split into two groups. Bri, Deidara, Sasori, Kakuzu and Konan, you're with Itachi. Sasha, Hidan, Kisame, Pein and Zetsu, you're with me. Then, just hold on and when we say when, you can let go. Just one little tip: try not to open your eyes too soon, you could get sick."
We all nodded in understanding and formed the groups. Then, Madara and Itachi started to concentrate their chakra and I began to feel a weird sensation in the pit of my stomach, as if we were beginning to be pulled. Then, darkness began to settle in and I knew that this was a ride I would never forget.
And that's it!! The final chapter to this fic!! Don't worry; there will be a sequel, called "Akatsuki's revenge!" (Title still in progress).
Cake to all who review!!!!
