Hello everyone and thanks for reading! Sorry for the late update, I had a major case of writers block. I can't believe I'm in my fifth chapter! Awesome! The Naruto and FMA gang learn more about each other and their worlds. What would they think about each other's battle strategies? Will Hinata be okay? Will Ed and Naruto get along when it's time to enter the battlefield? Read to find out!
Sadly, I do not own any of the characters from Naruto or FMA, Kishimoto and Arakawa sensei do.
Two Different Worlds
Military Hotel in Central City
"So what exactly is Ninjutsu" Al asked, confused by the strangers' art. Naruto and Sakura along with Ed and Winry all shared a two-bedroom room. It was late and they decide they should get to know each other better.
"I told you already!" Sakura complained. She had spent the last twenty minutes explaining Ninjutsu and chakra to Alphonse. Al just sat there, still confuse and Winry even more confuse. Edward on the other hand wasn't even listening to the conversation. Instead he sat by the window, gazing out to the night, his mind somewhere else.
"Let me explain, you give very complicated speeches that not even I know what you're saying," Naruto said. Sakura gave him a mean look and turned away from him with a huff.
"Ok, first I'll explain chakras, which is the energy needed to perform Ninjutsu," Naruto said.
"Chakra, is the energy of the mental and spiritual energy acquired over training and experience, do you understand?" he asked, looking up at the suit of armor who was sitting across from him.
"Yeah, I guess," Al, said unsurely.
" Next, You manipulate the chakra by performing hand signs, which allows you to perform Ninjutsu. By combining different orders of hand signs, you get different Ninjutsu. The more chakra and control you have, the stronger the Ninjutsu is," Naruto said, feeling smart because of his knowledge.
"It sounds so strange but powerful, I'm sure it'll come in handy when we battle our enemies" Al said.
"Who exactly is our enemy?" Sakura asked.
"It's kind of complicated, we have an idea of who our enemy is but we don't know how many of them there are," Al said.
"What! How can you not know who your enemy is?" Naruto exclaimed.
"Well, um, lets just say our enemy is always one step ahead of us," Al said.
"Do you have any idea of who they might be?" Sakura asked.
"Well, we think our enemies might be artificial humans made by Alchemy," Al said.
"Artificial humans?" Sakura said confusingly.
"Alchemy? What's that," Naruto asked.
"Alchemy is an act when you create something from the same type of substance. Like you can change metal until a spear made out of that metal and the same amount of it," Al said.
"Wow, that sounds like magic," Sakura said.
"Actually it's not. Alchemy is science which means that it consist of laws, rules, and formulas. The first rule is you can only make something in to something else made of the same substance and the same amount of that substance," Al explained.
"I don't really understand, but who cares," Naruto said, folding his arms behind his back.
"Naruto, don't be rude! So can you tell us more about our enemies," Sakura asked, giving Naruto a killer look for his rude comment.
"Are you an Alchemist too," Naruto asked the blond headed girl sitting next to Al.
"Huh, me? No I'm an Auto-Mail engineer," Winry stated proudly.
"An Auto-Mail engineer? What's that?" Sakura asked.
"Auto-Mail are artificial limbs made out of mechanism which is connected to the host nervous system. Edward over there has an Auto-Mail arm and leg that I made him," Winry said.
"That sounds so cool" Naruto said, looking over at Ed and now just noticing his metal right arm.
" Anyway," Al said, "What we know about our enemy is that they're Homunculi, or artificial humans, with the ouroboros tattoo located somewhere on their body," Al said, handing them a sketch of the tattoo.
"It looks like a dragon biting its own tail and some weird star shape in the middle," Sakura said, observing the sketch.
"It is, but I should tell you that the Homunculi aren't our only enemy," Al said with a concern voice.
"You got to be kidding! You mean there's more people we have to deal with?" Naruto burst out.
"Yes, one of our other enemies is a man named Scar. He is a wanted criminal for killing numerous state alchemists. Recently, people we thought we could trust have also turned out to be our enemies," Al said, looking down sadly.
"Huh? Did something happen," Sakura asked gently, thinking there might be something serious on his mind. Winry, who was sitting by his side also looked down sadly.
"Well, we one of our friends was killed by someone we trusted and things have been confusing and hard lately," Al said softly.
"Oh, I'm sorry. I dint know what you guys were going through," Sakura said.
"It's okay, anyway what do you guys think of this place? Are you comfortable? I still find it hard to believe you guys are from another world," Al said.
"Do you guys remember how you got here?"Winry asked.
"I wish, all I remember backing up Naruto in a battle when one of our enemies used some strange jutsu. The next thing I knew I was being taken apart by thin black hands. When I woke up I was here in your world," Sakura said.
"Thin black hands," Al and Winry said in unison making Edward snap out of his thoughts.
"Wait Sakura, didn't you see that huge gate and that weird guy?" Naruto asked.
"What gate?" Sakura asked confuse, especially by the look Al and Ed had on their faces.
"Wait, you saw the gate. The one within the pure white space and that guy named truth," Ed asked.
"Um, yeah. Is bad?" Naruto said.
"Brother, do you think," Al said looking over at his brother.
"I don't know Al, in their world they have no such thing as alchemy. But if they had something like a philosophers stone than it might be possible to get to the other side of the gate. If that's true it means there must be two parallel, but different, worlds connected by the gate and truth," Ed said out loud, confusing every one in the room but Al.
"So what you're trying to say is that we got to this world by Alchemy," Sakura asked.
"How is that possible," Naruto asked.
"Well what happened before you guys got to this world," Al asked.
"Um, well our village was under attack by one of our enemies. While we were fighting he drew a large circular pattern around the battle field," Sakura said, trying to remember what had happened.
"A circular pattern," Al repeated to himself.
"Yeah, I've never seen anything like it," Naruto added.
"Did it look similar to these," Ed asked, picking up an Alchemy book and showing them many of the transmutation circles.
"It did look something like that," Naruto said as Sakura nodded her head in agreement.
"What else happened," Ed asked.
"I also remember Orochimaru, the enemy we were fighting, summoning a giant black scroll. He said something about it containing millions of peoples' lives within it. Next, he clapped his hands together and placed them on the middle of the circle he created. Then there was a huge blue light and then we ended up here," Naruto said.
"That has to be Alchemy," Al said.
"But how can Alchemy exist in our world? I've never heard of it until now," Sakura said.
"Maybe It was a Gutsu or whatever you guys call it," Ed said.
"You mean a Jutsu?" Naruto asked.
"Yeah whatever, is it possible?" He asked the outsiders.
"I don't think so, um I don't know," Sakura said sighing into her hands.
"Wait a minute, you said you were fighting your enemy before you got here right," Ed asked. Naruto and Sakura looked at him and saw that he must have figured something out.
"Yeah," Sakura and Naruto said.
"Then there's a huge possibility that your enemy made it here too," Ed stated.
"What! No way do you really think our enemy is here too? Aww that sucks," Naruto burst out.
"That means we're now dealing with your enemies and ours. Great! That is such a pain," Sakura said.
"Well what do you know about your enemy?" Al asked, wanting to know more about their world.
Naruto and Sakura's faces were filled with sorrow as they remembered something Ed, Al, and Winry did not know.
"Well it's kind of a long story," Sakura said softly, her voice sounding as if she was about to burst out into tears.
"Is it okay if you tell us about it?" Al asked.
Naruto and Sakura gave each other unsure glances. Should they know about Orochimaru and how Sasuke was and still is an important friend to them?
Sakura and Naruto didn't respond at first until Sakura spoke up, "Well it's kind of a long story."
"That's ok we have all night," Ed said, leaning back in his chair.
" First you should know," Sakura began before she was interrupted by a knock at the door.
"Ed go answer that," Al said looking over at his big brother.
"Ugh, fine," He said grumpily, getting up from his chair and walking towards the door.
"Can I help you?" Ed said when he opened the door.
The others all stood up so they can get a good look at their guest. The person at the door was no other than Major Armstrong. The next thing they know, the general punched Ed sending him flying in the hotel's hallway.
"What the heck did you that for Major," Ed yelled as he stood up and glared at the towering muscular man.
"Oh dear!" Exclaimed the man, grabbing a hold of Ed as if he was injured.
" Your Auto-Mail is broken! This is very bad indeed! We must repair your arm now," Major Armstrong said, observing his dent right arm
"I shall accompany you to Resembool so you can be repaired," he said to Ed.
"Huh? Wait, you don't have to take me all the way back there. Winry is here with us," Ed said.
"Brother what's going on," Al asked as he stepped out to the hallway, followed by the others.
"Ah! Alphonse Elric, you stand out to much you should stay here," Armstrong said, patting Al's shoulder.
"Hey, I remember you. You were at the train station," Naruto said.
"Ah yes! I remember you. You should accompany us," Armstrong said as he grabbed Ed and Naruto and dragged them away leaving the others completely speechless.
"Um, what just happened," Sakura asked.
"I have no idea," Al said.
"We should go back inside," Winry said.
"Hi guys! Are they leaving?" a voice asked.
"AIEEE!" Al, Winry, and Sakura yelled at the same time. Turning to find a tall guy with his black hair tied in a ponytail.
"Lin! How did you get in! Again!" Al exclaimed.
"You left the window open. You should really start closing them. Criminals can get in that way," Lin said smiling.
"How did you find us," Al asked.
" Well your brother is a state alchemist so I checked all the military hotels until I found you guys," He said.
"Lin, have you ever heard of the front door? Why did you even sneak in through the window?" Winry asked, crossing her arms and glaring at him.
"Of course I have to silly! After all, I'm a wanted criminal and an illegal immigrant. Oh! Don't forget I broke out from prison too," he said proudly.
"Don't act so proud! Anyway, what have you been up to lately?" Al asked.
"Well I heard from Mustang that you guys are in charge of some strangers," He said looking at Sakura.
"So was that other guy Armstrong was dragging also from another world," Lin said.
"Yeah, he is. My name's Sakura Haruno," She said.
"And I'm' Lin Yao," he said giving her a smile.
"Anyway, I heard all about your adventures from Barry the Chopper. It's quite a mess you've gotten yourselves into," he said turning to Al.
"Like what?" Al asked.
"Oh just things," he said smiling as he sat back.
"Ugh, I don't have time for this Ling! Major Armstrong just took my brother somewhere! I have to go after them!" Al said clearly annoyed.
"Well, you know how your friend Maria Ross was accused of killing your friend Maes right," He asked.
"Yeah," Al said, sadness detectable in his voice.
"Well, the Major is taking Ed to her current location to see if she really is the one who killed Hues cause many believe it's not her. That and the colonel doesn't want to deal with him the same goes for some other guy named Naruto. He said he reminds him to much of Ed," he said smiling.
"Sounds like something the colonel will do and say. Then who do you think killed Hues?" Al asked.
"Isn't it obvious? The Homunculi," Ling said with a grin.
"No way!" Al exclaimed.
"Yup there in here in Central, I'm just waiting for the signal. Where going to confront these monsters," he said.
Suddenly there was a loud noise and colorful explosions outside in the sky.
"Fireworks? At this time of the year?" Winry said, looking out at the colorful display.
"Nope, that will be the signal. You coming Al?" Ling said, looking over at Al.
"Of course I am! If it will lead us to Hues killer than I'm up for it," Al said.
"I think I should go to, I would like to help you guys fight your enemy," Sakura said.
"Then it's settled. Let's go," Ling said as he jumped out the window.
"I'm right behind you," Sakura said as she jumped out the window.
"Sheesh, Haven't those two ever heard of a door!" Al said. He turned around to face Winry who had a look of worried all over her face.
"You'll come back alive right?" she asked softly.
"Always managed to, don't worry ill come back," he said as he to jumped out the window.
"Ugh, Huh? Where am I?" Hinata groaned as she finally started to come around.
"Hinata your awake, how do you feel?" asked a voice. Hinata turned around to the voice to find her white-eyed cousin sitting by her bed reading a manga book.
"Neji! I'm so glad to see you! Where are we and why am I in the hospital? What happened?" Hinata asked.
"Wait, you don't remember what happened/" Neji asked, concern showing in his eyes.
"Huh? What happened? Why are you looking at me like that?" she asked, feeling uneasy by the look in her cousin's eyes.
Neji sighed, "Hinata tell me what you remember."
"Let me see, um, I remember our village being under attack and I was running to join the battle but I never got there," she said.
"Well this is problem, now I have to tell you everything. I'm still confuse myself about the situation we're in," Neji said.
"Neji tell me what's going on? You look so serious it's creeping me out," she said, sounding worried.
"Well where do I begin? You did fight but Sasuke knocked you out so that's probably why you don't remember anything. You see, Orochimaru used a strange jutsu that brought us to a different world," he said.
"What? That doesn't make sense. Is this some kind of joke? Cause its not very funny," she said.
"You don't believe? Fine, I'll prove it to you," Neji said as he stood up and walked over to the window. He opened the curtains revealing the busy city.
Hinata gasped at the sight before her, she's never seen anything like it. There were many tall buildings that lasted for miles. There were many streets that were filled with strange vehicles. People were everywhere in the loud city, many who seemed there were in a rush to get somewhere. In the middle of the city, was a big building surrounded by soldiers in blue uniform. She had a feeling the leader of this city was in that feeling; she couldn't help feeling uneasy as she looked at the tall building.
"But how is that even possible! What happened to Konoha? What about our friends? How are we going to get back home!" Hinata said as she started to have a panic attack.
"Hinata calm down. We meet some people in really high places who can help us find a way back home," Neji said as he tried to calm done his cousin.
That's when there was a knock on the door and Ten-Ten walked in. " Neji the Colonel wants to see us. Hinata! You're finally awake! We were so worried about you!" Ten-Ten said.
"Ten-Ten! I'm so glad to see you in one piece," Hinata said, smiling at the girl.
"What does the Colonel want Ten-Ten?" Neji asked.
"He didn't say, but it's apparently some kind of mission. He wants to meet us right away so we should go now," Ten-Ten said.
"Fine, Hinata I'll be back when this is over. Get your rest so you can join in the action next time, do you understand me?" he said giving her a look when he was serious.
"Ok, just come back safe," Hinata said, giving her cousin a soft smile.
"You got it."
