I do not own Naruto but I DO own Katsuki Shizenno.

It was a calm, warm evening and Shikamaru was walking through the forest near Konohagakure. It was nice out so Shikamaru wanted nothing but to relax. But then, everything went wrong. He was walking along when he bumped into something.

He flinched.

"Ouch," he groaned, rubbing his hurting head. "What a drag."

"Watch where you're [censored] going!" a voice yelled.

Shikamaru whipped around.

It was…Hidan?

Hadn't he killed him?

"Wait a moment!" Shikamaru yelled. "How in the world are you--"

Suddenly a shaking of the ground cut him off.

An earthquake!

The ground caved in below them.

This cannot be happening.

Shikamaru thought.

When Shikamaru opened his eyes he saw they were in a cavern.

Hidan was laying next to him unconscious.

Shikamaru figured they'd gotten knocked out during the collapse of the cave. He tapped on Hidan's shoulder. He didn't move. He shook him lightly. No answer.

Shikamaru sighed in frustration and the clocked Hidan over the head.

"Ouch!" Hidan screamed jerking awake. "That hurt!"

"Well, you wouldn't wake up," Shikamaru said. "It was a real drag."


"Hey, wait, how are you even alive?"

"What? The same way you are."

"No, no, I thought you were dead."


Hidan sighed and looked to the cave ceiling.

"Do you know about Akatsuki member Katsuki Shizenno?" Hidan began slowly.

"Yeah," Shikamaru answered. "I've heard about her. No one really know where she came from. Some say Konahagakure, some say Kirigakure, others say Sunagakure. Some even dare to say Otogakure."

"Yeah, her. Well, regardless, she has some interesting powers."


"Yep. She can destroy evil lingerings, heal and can use body regeneration."

"Body regeneration?"


"So you're saying she…ew."

"Well thanks a lot! Kakuzu, Sasori, Deidara-chan and the others have also been--"

"Look out!"

Shikamaru pushed Hidan away from a falling stalactite.

They tumbled into one of the intricate chambers of the cavern.

"Ouch," Shikamaru groaned. "I'm gonna need some painkillers later on."

They looked around.

They were a level down from where they were before. It was as if they'd fallen of a small cliff.

"Just great!" Hidan growled.

Suddenly another stalactite fell.

Shikamaru knocked Hidan out the way again.

"I am not going to keep doing that!" Shikamaru snapped.

"Just get the [censored] off of me!" Hidan yelled.

"Listen! The only way we are getting out of this cave is if we work together so shut up and help or stay down here!"



"Okay, I'll work with you."

"Alright then. Let's go."

But was working with each other going to be that easy of a task?

A/N: Thanks for reading ch. 1. ^.^
