Ally to Chaos
Naruto x Kushina
Inner Thoughts, Dialogue, or reading passages from books and scrolls
People, stop saying I'll never finish fics or I forget them you assholes. I just need inspiration and to remember shit. So yeah, shut up and enjoy.
Within the Sunagakure no Sato another development was occurring. Sitting behind his desk, the Kazekage was conducting a conversation with one of his shinobi, a Jounin by the name of Baki. "Good work Baki."
"All three of them managed to pass to the third round."
"As expected of my children and the weapon. The weapon was the only one that needed to reach the finals anyway. From this moment on I presume our deal with the Sound is strong?"
"Yes, we've received the documents from one of their couriers." He said handing his leader the scroll."
" I see, on that day we will be counting on the four of you." He informed him.
"But Kazekage-sama, with only the four of us? Can we not place troops around the Fire country and call it an exercise?" argued Baki.
"Konoha isn't stupid," explained one of the guards. "Their ANBU are already on the move and if we do that, we will draw too much attention. As expected, the forces we can bring into the village are limited. That is why we have Gaara and the others."
"But we can't ignore the latest factor. The Kyuubi being released."
"Do not be a fool Baki. Do you honestly think the Kyuubi released it would have performed the actions you described. The Bijuu are nothing more than mindless monsters that destroy everything in their path. Without a doubt it was merely some scheme of Konoha cooked up with in terms to scare off Orochimaru. If the Kyuubi indeed had that sort of power it would have escaped years ago and it simply wouldn't be in the command of a mere child."
Despite wanting to protest Baki knew better to argue. He simply nodded and left to inform his team of the development. "The Sand will join the Sound in attacking the Leaf on the third day of the Chunin exams" explained Baki to his three students. "This is an S-rank mission, please understand the importance."
"But a war of all things?" Temari uneasily questioned. "We spent so much time and effort to form this alliance, breaking it would result in the dead of thousands."
"In the end, shinobi are tools of war," Baki explained. "The alliance itself threatens our existence. You genin probably don't know it, but the Wind country's daimoyo ministers have used the alliance to forcibly weaken the military strength of the Hidden Sand. Because of the alliance, and the nobles have been sending clients to Konoha. They have been cutting our fondly drastically while sending missions to Konoha at cheaper rates. For our village to keep up, we had to raise the abilities of each of our shinobi. That's why shinobi like you were created…Gaara."
Gaara remained silent.
"Fearing the weakening of Suna, the Kazekage formed an alliance with the Sound to teach the daimoyo the danger the country is in. To ensure the recovery of the Sand village, we will destroy the Leaf. If more time is allowed to pass, the Leaf will become too powerful and out of our reach. This mission, we are counting on you, Gaara." Gaara nodded.
"But what about, you know, the whole Kyuubi being released?" despite being Suna's invincible weapon even they weren't naïve to think that the Shukaku could stand against the Kyuubi. There was a reason why the other countries were hesitant to attack Konoha and why Suna aligned with Konoha. Despite the vast power and resources of each country, the strongest kage tend to hail from Konoha along with the strongest Bijuu.
"The Kazekage seems to believe it was nothing more than a hoax by Konoha to scare away Orochimaru." Even as he said it, Baki didn't believe it himself. "We have our orders so we have no choice to carry it out."
Back in Konoha, Nanako was currently busy training. Nanako was always busying doing training. If she wasn't hurriedly reading over scrolls, she was being tutored in numerous jutsu, her chakra control and taijutsu styles. Now that she was aware of the Kagebunshin's ability to transfer experience back to her, she was training her wind element every day and gaining progress bit by bit.
Without a doubt her acute senses of smell, hearing, and chakra detection were going to help her. He couldn't help but to dub the girl he dubbed mistress fought to control the massive amount of chakra she was wielding. Without a doubt if the girl was hoping to have any hope against Gaara she was going to need to use this jutsu.
She would definitely have the jutsu down before the week was over. Another balloon was burst after she once again used too much chakra. He decided to help her a bit. Normally it would have been better for her to keep on trying until she figured it out, but the amount of time they had until the third round did not provide them with that luxury.
"You know," he said, watching the girl carefully. "You have to relax mistress. You have to learn the art of control."
"I just don't get it Er-sensei." She corrected. Her cheeks burned red along with her bottom at the reminder he had given her the other day on using proper titles. 'Ero-baka sensei didn't have to swat me.' She mentally added. "No matter how little chakra I add it just bursts."
"I guess it might be my doing," Naruto contemplated. "It wouldn't be the first time my separation caused a problem. The leftover chakra of mine in your body would be rather difficult to regulate." He fondly recalled the other versions having nothing but high chakra potency and kinjutsu. He suppose he could be a little more active, true he molded the others into skilled warriors many times in the past but he couldn't help but wonder just how things would play out if he just offered advice here or there.
Using one of his tails he picked up the balloon, placing it in Nanako's hand. Nanako watched as the Kyuubi began doing the steps to the Jutsu with ease. First the chakra began to swirl around his palm, and then it gathered together and formed a tight sphere of greatly compressed chakra winds. The speeds that the chakra was spinning was incredible with one very noticeable thing. He used a fair amount less chakra then she did. She watched as he used the sphere to drill a deep groove into the tree.
"That is the basic power of a Rasengan. I think it would be for the best you at least learn a wind elemental Rasengan. I'd do admit that the amount and level of skills we're trying to have you learn isn't really feasible, but I'm banking you're just as driven and gifted as my other past pupils."
He then placed his right hand under hers and the brought his left hand over hers. "Now perform the motions." He said as she began making the motions to channel the chakra. Slowly but surely the chakra became stable. Even if it was for a few moments, the fact that she was able to stabilize her chakra encouraged Nanako a good deal.
"And that's why my father hasn't spoken to me since." Naruto remarked as he inhaled his pipe and exhaled some smoke. Today was Kushina's day to train Nanako and there was four more days until the third round. Without a doubt things were going to be rather interesting. "You're not mad at me for the whole ball thing right?" Naruto asked, turning to the Sandaime who was passed out, Piper in his mouth. "Huh, maybe I shouldn't have substituted his tobacco with weed. Oh well." Naruto said as he sent sat back and continued to inhale his pipe. This Friday was going to be a good Friday.
