"Welcome back to the Third Chunnin Exam." The proctor said after the small break. "Now we will continue with our matches. First match of round two: Sabaku no Gaara vs. Sabaku no Kankuro. Will the combatants please step down?"
"Proctor, I forfeit." Kankuro called from the stands. "Sorry bro, but I'd rather not fight you." Gaara just nodded wordlessly.
"Very well, next match: Sabaku no Temari vs. Rock Lee." The blond Suna Nin rode down on her big fan while Lee jumped down from the combatant stands with a huge grin on his face.
"Yosh! I wish you a most youthful match!" Temari raised an eyebrow and readied her fan.
"Hajime!" Temari fired off a cyclone of razor-sharp wind at Lee, who was too quick for her and dodged easily. She tried to maneuver him to the trees so she could send them crashing down on him, but that plan didn't work. Every two attacks Lee would alternate jumps, first to the right then to the left.
"Yosh, this youthful match has been most fun, but it's time to end it." He jumped behind one of the trees and started taking off his weights. Temari sent multiple cyclones at the small group of trees, hoping to end it before he could finish, but a green blur shot out from the falling logs quickly, appearing in front of her, and punching her in the stomach, knocking all her air out, dizzying her. Another punch to the head knocked her out completely.
"Shousha: Rock Lee. Will Sabaku no Gaara please come down."
The match between Gaara and Lee was very arduous. Even though the red-haired Suna Nin swore to Naruto he wouldn't kill anybody, he was still a very powerful opponent, slightly outmatching Lee's mêlée prowess, until the green Gennin dropped his leg weights. Lee managed to outmatch Gaara's sand and sent a few good hits at the boy, before the sand tripped him and Gaara sent him flying into the wall, knocking him out.
"Shousha: Sabaku no Gaara. The final match will now begin. Will Namikaze Naruto please come down?" Naruto calmly walked down the stairs and stood across Gaara, his right hand on the hilt of his sword.
"I look forward to facing you, Namikaze." Naruto just nodded.
But their match finished before it even started, as white feathers started falling down all over the stadium, sending the civilians and Gennin in the audience to sleep instantly.
"It has begun." Gaara stated, staring at the feathers.
"I know." Naruto countered. There were two swirls of sand and Gaara's siblings, Temari and Kankuro, appeared on either side of him, their weapons of choice drawn.
"No. Stand down Temari, Kankuro. We will not join the fight." The two looked at their brother, surprised.
"You should also inform your forces to retreat. You have been tricked, and your Kazekage killed." Naruto motioned to the Kage Stand, where the Kazekage just ripped his veil off, showing a pale face with serpentine eyes. Gaara nodded and the three disappeared.
After the Suna Gennin Shunshinned out of the area, Naruto was surrounded by his family and Kakashi.
"The village is being invaded." Kakashi stated.
"I've noticed." Naruto deadpanned, getting a sheepish chuckle from the scarecrow. "Uncle, did you finish the project I sent you?" He asked Hephaestus, who nodded, bringing a garbed object from behind him, which Naruto handed to Kakashi. "A present for you, Sensei." Kakashi raised his only visible eyebrow and threw the cloth away, revealing a gladius with a pure white blade.
"Wait, is this…?"
"The Hakkō Chakura Tō. I sent my summons to retrieve it from that cave you left it in, and had uncle Hep strengthen and remodel it, but it's still basically the same blade."
"Thank you, Naruto." Kakashi gave the silver-haired Gennin a small bow and, with a single tear from his right eye, grabbed the hilt of the sword, fixing the sheath to the small of his back. A spark of white chakra shot out from the blade. "Heh, prepare for the Nidaime Konoha no Shiroi Kiba." He grinned, disappearing in a swirl of white chakra.
"What do you want us to do?" Hercules asked his nephew, who stared at the purple barrier the Oto Ninja erected in the meantime.
"Help with the invasion, protect the civilians." He said, before jumping up to the roof of the building and landing next to three Anbu who were just watching it. "Status report." The three masked Ninja looked at him for a moment, before the one in the tan cape shrugged and spoke up.
"The barrier was formed three minutes ago by the four Oto Shinobi at the corners. They formed the outer layer first, so we couldn't stop them. The Sandaime Hokage is trapped there with Mizukage-sama and an old man with a big white beard, their opponents are the rogue Sannin, Orochimaru and a traitor of the village, a boy named Yakushi Kabuto." Naruto nodded.
"Well, don't just stand there watching, go help with the invasion. I'll deal with things here." The Anbu nodded and Shunshinned away. Naruto used his Devil Trigger and walked through the barrier, grunting a little. The purple walls closed behind them.
When he got in he saw his grandfather, Sarutobi and a very hot chick fighting against Orochimaru and his lackey. The snake-man had just finished a chain of hand seals, and two coffins shot up from the ground.
"Even though I couldn't get ahold of the Yondaime, you still won't win today, Sensei. Say hello to a couple of old friends." The coffins opened to show the Shodaime and Nidaime Hokages, exactly as they were the day they died.
"You bastard!" Sarutobi grunted through clenched teeth.
"Grandfather, can you please deal with them?" Naruto made his presence know, getting a nod from the bearded god.
"Of course." Lightning shot out from his arms and, shifting his suit into more combat-oriented clothing, he charged at the two Hokages, grinning like a madman. "Ha ha, I haven't done this in a long time!"
"I don't know who the old man is, but he'll never win against two former Hokage, Naruto-kun, you know that." Kabuto smiled, trying to get a rise from the Gennin.
"I wouldn't be so sure." Naruto smirked. "But I think I'll let grandfather do the talking himself." The two Hokages were blasted off, lightning running through their bodies, followed by a grinning Zeus. "It seems he's having fun. Shall we go next?"
"There is no way you can beat the both of us, Naruto-kun." Orochimaru grinned.
"Oh I'm certain I can, but I think I'll let the pretty lady over here get her shot." He turned to the Mizukage. "I'm sorry Mizukage-chan, but I didn't get your name."
"It's Terumi Mei." She grinned at him.
"Ah, well then, Mei-chan, would you be so kind as to deal with the minor annoyance whilst I take care of the snake."
"I might." Her grin widened a fraction. "But I will be requiring some… compensation."
"Oh?" Naruto raised an eyebrow. "And what might that be?"
"Are you two quite done?" Orochimaru folded his hands, his eyebrow twitching. "I hope you haven't forgotten about us."
"In a moment, don't interrupt. So?" Naruto turned back to the Mizukage.
"How about a date, Naruto-kun, and we'll call it even?"
"Well I would have to ask for permission from my four other fiancées, but sure, I don't see why not. Now, if you would?" He motioned to Kabuto.
"Of course." She launched several flaming balls of earth at the teen, who was forced to dodge out of the way, leaving his master alone.
"This just leaves us, Naruto-kun." The snake grinned. "Are you sure you can handle me all by your lonesome."
"Oh, I'm pretty sure I can." Naruto grinned, drawing his sword. In response, Orochimaru drew his own, Kusanagi no Tsurugi, from a snake that slithered out from his mouth. "Man, that's gross." Naruto muttered, getting a shrug from Orochimaru.
"It works. Shall we dance?" In response, Naruto charged the Sannin, jumping up and aiming a swipe at the man's shoulder, which Orochimaru dodged easily. Naruto then brought Rebellion in an arc around him, intending to bisect the Sannin. The swipe was deflected along the Kusanagi's blade, chipping the sword a little. "Interesting blade you have, Naruto-kun." Orochimaru jumped back, examining the metal of his blade. "The Kusanagi is said to be unbreakable, and yet here you chipped it." He mended the cut with a little chakra. Before he could charge at the Gennin, however, the bodies of the two former leaders were sent into the barrier, evaporating into smoke, and Kabuto was sent hard to the ground, groaning, as smoke rose from his numerous burns.
"There goes your backup."
"So it would seem. I've… underestimated you. Be sure I will not make the same mistake again." Orochimaru grinned, grabbing Kabuto and signaling his Ninja to retreat. "Until next time, Naruto-kun." He melted into the floor.
"He ran away. Again." Sarutobi said.
"Yes. On the other hand, the invasion is over." Said a grinning Zeus as he walked up to his grandson.
"Having fun, I see." Naruto commented. The god just chuckled.
"Don't forget about our date, Naruto-kun." Mei smiled at him.
"We'll have to talk to the others, but don't worry, I won't…" A pitch-black swirling portal opened above him and a girl with short black hair, dressed in a white buttoned shirt and a plaid skirt, holding a rocket-launcher in her hands and a bunch of weapons and ammunition all over her fell out and landed straight in Naruto's arms. Her dichromic eyes locked with Naruto's purple ones.
"Hm, well there's something you don't see every day." Were the words she heard coming from the silver-haired mash up of beings before passing out.
