Chapter 1

"Stupid Naruto, I'll never forgive him for what he did to me. I just wish there was some way I could get back at him." said Sakura as she walked through the forest. She was still heavily frustrated about what had happened three days ago. Naruto had snuck into her bathroom while she was taking a shower and switched her shampoo with a bottle of green hair dye. She had dyed her hair green, and it lasted for two whole weeks. Everyone, including Tsunade and Kakashi made fun of her, calling her names like cabbage head or lettuce face. Eventually she was able to to wash it out. Since then, she despised Naruto even more, and was determined to even the score.

But soon, she came to a stop when she noticed a mysterious, green wooden mask laying motionless next to a tree. She scratched her head, wondering where it came from. Out of curiosity, she picked it up and looked at it.

"That's funny, I've never seen any masks like this one before. It doesn't look like it's from around here. Still, it looks interesting, maybe I'll bring it back with me."

Changing direction, she headed back for the village. However, she failed to notice the green glow that emitted from the mask.


Later on...

Sakura had made her way back to the village. However, she kept the mask in a brown sack she had brought with her earlier. As she walked on, she caught a glimpse of Naruto and Sasuke nearby. Naruto noticed her and waved at her, only to recieve a glare in response. She was still mad at him for the prank he played on her, and as such, she didn't say a word to him. Ignoring him entirely, she continued on her way.

Four minutes later in the afternoon, she finally arrived at her apartment. For the rest of the day, she spent most of her time sitting on her bed, staring at the mask she found.

"I don't know why, but I just can't help looking at this mask. There's something about it that just intrigues me. I wonder how I'd look if I tried it on." said Sakura as she held it in her hands.

But suddenly, an idea popped into her head as a mischievous smile formed on her face.

"I think I know what to do with it now. I'll use it to scare the daylights out of Naruto. That'll teach him not to pull a prank on me. Maybe I should try it on first, to make sure it fits."

She chuckled to herself as she lifted the mask up to her face. But she suddenly pulled it away when it nearly tried to attach itself to her.

"What was that about, that wasn't normal."

She looked at it for a short second, flinching a little with shock when she saw a green glow emit from it.

"Okay, I'll just try it again and see what happens."

Taking caution, she once again brought the mask up to her face. But suddenly, when she put it on, something happened. The mask somehow came to life and began to wrap itself around her head. Sakura struggled to pull it off, but to no avail. There was a sound of thunder as the mask continued to envelope Sakura's head. When it stopped, Sakura started spinning around in a mini tornado. Her screams were muffled by the tornado entirely. She twirled around the room continously, knocking over random furniture.

When the tornado stopped in place, the spinning came to an end. Standing in it's place was Sakura, who now had a bright green face, complete with a large, cartoonish grin, as well as a more curvy and slimmer body, along with a much larger bust.

"Ssssssmokin." said Sakura as she looked at herself in the mirror.

"Ooh, someone call the police, because there's a hot babe on the loose. I feel pretty good, more than I ever felt before. I think maybe I should go where the fun really is, out in the open."

"But first." she said with a high pitched, cartoon voice.

Getting into running position, Sakura sped out of her apartment.


Meanwhile...

"I think I really blew it this time. Sakura must really hate me for that prank. I didn't mean to hurt her, I just thought it would be funny." said Naruto who was up on a tree branch while talking to Sasuke, who was leaning on the tree trunk.

"If you didn't act like an idiot so much, then maybe you wouldn't have done it." replied Sasuke.

"Gee, thanks for the lecture. Maybe I should go find Sakura and apologize."

"Duh, you think."

Then suddenly, a speeding blur came rushing towards them, with a big cloud of dust trailing behind it. Naruto and Sasuke both coughed as they were engulfed in dust. Once the dust cleared away, there stood Sakura, green face and all, along with a cheesy cartoon smile.

"Eh, what's up boys." she greeted.

"Sakura, what happened to your face, why is it all green?" asked Sasuke.

"Are you sick or something?" asked Naruto jumping down from the branch.

"No, I'm just nice and peachy."

"Anyways, I'm glad you're here. I just wanted to apologize for switching your shampoo with green hair dye. I'm sorry, I never meant to hurt your feelings. Can you forgive me."

"Aw you're so sweet. In fact, I'm so pleased by your apology, I even made you a nice and delicious whipped cream pie."

Sakura then presented him with a whipped cream pie which had a lit fuse at the tip of it.

"Why does this pie have a fuse in it?" asked Naruto.

"No reason. I hope you like it."

She then slammed the pie in his face. Afterwards, it exploded, leaving Naruto's face covered with ashes.

"It has explosive taste, HA HA HA."

Then suddenly, another idea came to mind.

"Hey Naruto, you know what would look good on you?"

"What?"

Before he knew it, Sakura reached in his pants and pulled his underwear up over his head.

"A nice old fashioned, WEDGIE, HA HA HA."

"THAT WAS NOT FUNNY." yelled Naruto as he tried to pull the underwear off his head.

"I don't have time for this stuff, I'm outta here." said Sasuke as he turned to walk away.

"Whoa, hold on buster, not so fast."

"What are you gonna do to me?"

When he turned around to face her, she was dressed like a professional hairdresser/ makeup stylist.

"Tsk tsk tsk, that look is all wrong for you my dear. Allow me to give you a proper makeover." said Sakura.

"Hmph, no thanks, I'm fine the way I am."

But she grabbed him and threw him into a styling chair, tying him up in a ribbon soon after.

"Now don't be so shy my darling, it's only a makeover."

Reaching into her pocket, she pulled out an entire set of shampoo and hair care products, complete with a large mirror.

"Now let's start things off with a little Spin Cycle, shall we?"

"Spin Cycle."

"Here goes nothing."

With one quick twist, she twirled him around in the chair with incredible speed like a tornado. As this took place, Sakura began adding in various shampoos and other products in the process.

"A little of this, a bit of that, some of this, and a whole lot of shampoo."

Then she pulled out a bucket of water from behind her back and poured it into the tornado, dropping the bucket in with it. She then stood there waiting for about 10 seconds before using her left index finger to bring it to a stop.

"Ooh la la, you look, how you say, magnificent, no." said Sakura with a cheesy french accent.

Sasuke looked at his reflection in the mirror, gasping with shock. His hair was now dyed purple, with red highlights, his eyes were covered with eyeliner and blue eyeshadow. His cheeks were coated with light pink blush. He grunted with frustration as he tore himself out of the ribbon and wiped the makeup off his face. He could hear Naruto laughing uncontrollably while rolling back and forth on the ground.

"Hahahahahahaha, you look like a girl, hahahahaha." said Naruto while laughing.

"I wouldn't be laughing if I were you, wedgie boy." retorted Sasuke.

Naruto suddenly stopped laughing after, glaring at Sasuke for a brief second before shrugging it off. He then turned his attention to Sakura.

"I'm sorry to say this Sakura. But something's wrong with you. You've never acted like this before in your whole life. You're behaving like some sort of wacky cartoon character."

"Alas, it is true my friend. For it is the moment of truth, a pitiful case if you will. Therefore, I shall bid you adieu." said Sakura in a sulking tone.

"What are you talking about?" asked a confused Sasuke.

Without warning, Sakura grabbed Sasuke into a tight embrace and dipped him back.

"Sasuke, my sweet, sweet darling. How I've loved you for so long. Let my everlasting love burn within your heart as it has burned within my own, mon cherie."

With that, she puckered her lips and planted a big, sloppy kiss on Sasuke. Everyone who was present in the village at the time gasped with shock and surprise. Naruto on the other hand was also shocked, but at the same time amazed. Sasuke however was currently struggling to get loose as Sakura's overly affectionate kiss was starting to suffocate him. But after a while, Sakura finally broke the kiss and dropped him on the ground.

"AWOOOGA AWOOOGA, NOW THAT'S-A WHAT I-A CALL A SPICY MEATBALL." shouted Sakura with an italian accent in a squeaky cartoon voice.

"Now if you'll excuse me, I must be going, bye bye. Ayeyeyyeye."

After that, she dashed away, once again leaving a trail of dust behind her. She dashed all the way back to her apartment. Once she realized that the coast, she grasped her face and with a mighty yank, pulled the mask right off, turning back to normal. She then plopped down on her bed, holding the mask to her chest.

"I have to admit, that was quite weird. But it was worth it, at least I got payback on Naruto."

She then sat up to look at the mask face to face.

"I have no idea why, but I think I just might get used to you."

The whole time she stared at it, she couldn't help but smile. Even though despite the little scene she caused not too long ago in front of the whole village, she still felt satisfied, but deep down, she also felt guilty for what she had done to Naruto and Sasuke.

Her moment was soon interrupted by a knock at the door.

"Who is it?" asked Sakura.

"Naruto!" said a voice from outside.

"Oh no, if he sees this mask, he'll think something's going on. I gotta hide it."

She looked frantically around her room, searching for a place to hide the mask. Just as she was running out of ideas, at the last second she immediately threw it into her closet. She then walked over and opened the door slightly to peek her head out.

"Hey Naruto, did you need something?" asked Sakura.

"I just came here to talk. I wanted to find out about why you were acting like a screwball cartoon."

"I don't know what you're talking about." Sakura lied.

But judging from the look on Naruto's face, she could tell he was being serious.

"I'm talking about the fact that you hit me in the face with an explosive pie, you gave me a wedgie, you gave Sasuke a makeover, and you kissed him in front of everyone in the village."

"Listen, I'd love to talk some more, but I'm not in the mood. Bye now."

After that, she closed the door. Naruto just shook his head and walked away.

"That was a close one." said Sakura as she layed back down on her bed. She stared up at the ceiling, thinking to herself about recent events. But after several hours went by, as soon as it became nighttime, she thought up another idea.

A mischievous and rather wacky idea. With a scheming smile, she turned towards the closet. Relentlessly she jumped off the bed and rushed into the closet. Within minutes, she came back out spinning in another tornado. She spun all the way through her apartment, going right out the door, reappearing as her green faced, sexy looking and screwball cartoon self once again.

"Look out Konoha, because now it's SHOWTIME." called Sakura before dashing off into the night.

Sakura trotted down the path of Konoha, whistling to herself like nothing was happening. Along the way, she was suddenly confronted by what appeared to be some kind of black clad ninja.

"Give me all your money, now." demanded the ninja.

"Ooh, looks like someone wants to play." said Sakura breaking the fourth wall.

"Didn't you hear me, hand over your cash."

"Say, do you know what rhymes with edgy?"

"No, what is it?"

"An ATOMIC WEDGIE."

She reached her arms behind the ninja and soon pulled his underwear up over his head. While he was distracted, Sakura pulled out a golf club from behind her back.

"Fore!"

With a powerful swing, she launched the ninja high into the sky and out of the village.

"That's what I call an ace in the hole, hahahahaha."

Soon she was confronted by three more black ninjas.

"Oh, you guys wanna play too?"

With a cartoonish smile, she pulled out a small little horn with a honker that had the words "Squeeze Me Gently" on it.

"Sorry, but I'm in a hurry. "

She then honked it.

AAAAWWWWOOOOOOOGAH

The noise had sent two of the ninjas flying, leaving only one behind. After putting it away, she turned her attention to the last remaining ninja. But rather than doing anything, he instead ran away.

"Ooh what a waste. But it was worth it, HA HA HA."


The next morning at the Ninja Academy...

"Alright class. Before I start today's lesson, first I need to do roll call to make sure that everyone is here." said Iruka.

"Sasuke Uchiha."

"Here." said Sasuke.

"Naruto Uzumaki."

"Here." said Naruto.

"Well, that's a first." muttered Iruka before continuing.

"Sakura Haruno."

But there was no response. Confused, he looked over her at her seat, which was completely empty.

"Alright, where's Sakura?" asked Iruka in a serious tone. Pretty soon, all eyes were directed at Naruto.

"Don't look at me, it's not my fault she's absent." said Naruto defensively.

"Well if you're not responsible, then where is she?"

Suddenly, the front doors of the classroom popped opened as a small tornado came spinning into the room. Heading up to the front of the classroom, it came to a screeching halt, revealing a green faced Sakura standing in it's place.

"I'M HERE." shouted Sakura.

"You're late."

"Whoops, my my aren't you strict."

"Just take your seat."

"Whatever you say cubby."

Bouncing like a spring, she landed right next to Naruto.

"Alright now class. For today's lesson-"

"Pow wow."

"For today's lesson-"

"La la la la la."

"Argh, as I was saying, for today's lesson-"

"My fellow patriots, honor is like an ice cream cone. The more you lick it-"

"SAKURA, THAT IS ENOUGH. STOP INTERRUPTING MY TEACHINGS."

"STOP INTERRUPTING MY TEACHINGS." mocked Sakura.

"DON'T YOU DARE MOCK ME."

"DON'T YOU DARE MOCK ME."

"ENOUGH!"

"ENOUGH!"

Soon, a large grin formed across her lips. She got up from her seat and dashed up to Iruka.

"Well, what do you want?"

"I'd just like to introduce you to my AK47, semi-automatic, WEDGIE."

She then yanked his underwear up over his head. Everyone, except Naruto and Sasuke all laughed out loud. After pulling his underwear off his head, he was now steaming mad.

"THAT'S IT, YOU ARE IN BIG TROUBLE NOW."

"Whoopsie. It was a blast, but I've gotta run."

Before she could run away, Iruka grabbed her left arm.

"You're not going anywhere."

But in an act reminicent of Bugs Bunny, Sakura turned her head and gave Iruka a big kiss on the lips, forcing him to let go while wiping his mouth. She then took off running.

Naruto sunk down into his seat, feeling embarassed about what happened.

"Neither of you students will speak of this to anyone." said Iruka.

Later after class was over, Naruto and Sasuke went walking through the village, talking about Sakura's unusual cartoonish behavior. But their talk was cut short when they heard someone screaming.

"AAAAAAAHHHHHH, MY NOVELS. MY PRECIOUS NOVELS."

Kakashi had came rushing out of his apartment. He looked frantically around the area. Naruto went walking up to his rather distraught sensei.

"Master Kakashi, what's wrong?" asked the young ninja.

"Someone snuck into my house and ruined my Icha Icha novels. There were nothing but scribbles and scribbles all over the pages."

"Why would someone do that, it's just weird."

"You think that's weird, look around."

Naruto looked around the village, gazing with shock at the villagers. Half the villagers had their underwear pulled up over their heads, others were tied to tree branches like pinatas, while everything else was just random.

"How could Sakura cause all this mischief?" thought Naruto.

"HEY, LET ME GO. WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU CRAZY MANIAC?" yelled a familiar female.

With that, Naruto, Kakashi and Sasuke all ran to the source of the yelling. They soon found Ino, who was tied to a tree while Sakura was standing near her.

"Whoopsie, I've been found out." said Sakura.

"Sakura, this mischief has to stop. Your cartoonish behavior has gotten out of hand." said Naruto.

"But it's fun. Especially when I scribbled all over Kakashi's precious novels with red marker."

"IT WAS YOU!" shouted Kakashi.

"Ooh look at the time. I'd love to stay and chat, but I've got a prior engagement."

"OH NO YOU DON'T." yelled Ino as she angrily broke free from the ropes and grabbed her by the throat.

"Aw, you're such a sweetie. I didn't know you cared."

Just like with Iruka earlier, Sakura kissed Ino on the lips, making the digusted ninja let go while spitting out her saliva. While she was distracted, Sakura soon subjected her to an atomic wedgie, pulling her underwear over her head.

Before she could run off, Naruto grabbed her from behind and held her tight.

"Sakura, you need to calm down." said Naruto.

"Ooh, a wise guy."

She began spinning around in a tornado at full speed, sending Naruto flying into Sasuke.

"SOMEBODY STOP ME, HA HA HA. WOO HOOHOOHOOHOOHOOHOO, AAAWWWOOOOOGA."

She then dashed away, leaving a smoking afterimage of herself.

"What the heck is wrong with her, since when did she become all cartoon-like?" asked Ino.

"What I'm trying to figure out is why her face is green."

"I've read this in a book before. The green face, the mischief, the supernatural powers, it all makes sense." said Kakashi

"What does?" asked Sasuke.

"Sakura is wearing the Mask of Loki. It was created by the God of Mischief himself. Anyone who wears it is endowed with the powers of the Norse god Loki, but at the cost of losing their inhibitions and insecurities. Sakura must have somehow gotten her hands on the ancient artifact."

"So that explains why she was acting like a screwball." said Ino.

"More importantly, we must catch her and take off the mask before she causes anymore trouble."

"I sure hope we can, if I know one thing, she's not gonna be easy to catch." said Naruto.

"Either way, we must try."


Well here's my first Mask crossover story.

The very first entry of my Mask crossover series.

It was originally gonna be a oneshot, but I changed it around. So there will be a second chapter soon.

Just to make a quick statement, I based Sakura's mask personality on the Mask cartoon series.

So now that they know she's wearing a mask, they've gotta do something and fast.

Of course that won't be easy, considering that Sakura's now a living, zany, screwball cartoon.

I'd just like to thank OnyxSteelGray1213 for the inspiration to create this crossover.

If some of the stuff is too confusing or a little off track, I apologize.

Anyways.

Later folks.
