It was a different type of Friday night. Kids sped down streets in many types of costumes, being chased by their less than exuberant parents, as they prepared to raid every being in the neighborhood of their delicious, colorfully wrapped pieces of candy. Others, such as teens and adults lucky enough not to know the joy of having a child, traveled to their friends houses, about to party down for the night.
It was October 31, the day better known as Halloween.
Leaves gently floated down from trees, indicating that the fall season was here. And, in the midst of it all, no one seemed to notice the ten cloaked figures that had magically popped into the middle of their unofficial holiday.
The group looked around, taking in the strange sight of the new place.
"This isn't good," the only women of the group muttered, looking over at her auburn haired friend. He nodded in agreement.
"Pein-sama," the shark-like member addressed, "I can sense three chakra signatures coming from somewhere around here."
His black hair partner nodded in agreement. "You're right Kisame; they seem to be the only ones here with chakra too…"
"Alright," Pein said, turning to speak to the group, "Hidan and Kakuzu, Kisame and Itachi, and Deidara and Tobi, all of you will split up and locate the three chakra containers. Once you have, capture them and report back to me. However, do not let anyone see you; they may not react well to seeing that we are not like them. Is this understood?"
"Hai," the six chorused and took off, traveling at a speed no one would be able to detect.
Pein sighed, rubbing his temples. The situation couldn't possibly get any worse.
"OH MY GOD!" Pein's head snapped up. Standing in front of him was a blond haired boy, looking to be around the age of nine. "YOU GUYS ARE COSPLAYING THE AKATSUKI, FROM NARUTO SHIPPUDEN!"
Pein raised an eyebrow as the boy rambled on. "YOU MUST BE PEIN, THE AKATSUKI LEADER! YOU EVEN GOT RINNEGAN CONTACTS AND ALL OF HIS PEIRCINGS! OH!" He turned to the rest of the group, "YOU MUST BE KONAN! I love her, she's the prettiest. OH AND HE'S SASORI! YOU'VE EVEN GOT A ZETSU! OH MY GOD, YOU EVEN PAINTED YOURSELF BLACK AND WHITE! YOU GOT THE PLANT THING AS WELL! WOW, YOU'RE ALL JUST SO AWESOME!"
Zetsu stared at the boy hungrily. "Leader-sama, can I eat this brat?"
Pein sighed, shaking his head. "As much as it pains me to say this Zetsu, no, you may not."
"Oh damn," he cursed as the boy took off to go and tell his other friends, in amazement, that they were speaking completely in Japanese as well.
Meanwhile with Hidan and Kakuzu
The zombie brothers both stalked through the shadows quietly, their target in sight. It was a blonde teenage girl, looking to be about 5 ft 5 inches, wearing a short strapless green dress with a pair of wings strapped onto her back.
She seemed completely oblivious to the fact that they were practically leering above her, when Hidan jumped down, clamping a hand over her mouth before chopping the back of her neck, slinging her over his shoulder once she went limp in his arms.
Kakuzu nodded to him and they both slunk back into the cover of the shadows.
One down, two to go.
With Deidara and Tobi
"Katsu," Deidara whispered quietly, a small clay bird appearing in his palm. The bird fluttered from the tree the two were hiding in, headed down to the red head that had stopped, and rested against the base of the tree below.
The small bird silently circled the teens head, going unnoticed. Eyes suddenly snapping open, the green orbs stared in shock at the little white bird that, once discovered, had immediately flown back up into the tree.
Deidara cursed knowing their cover had been blown, and nodded to Tobi. The masked man disappeared in a swirl, startling the teen when he was suddenly looming in front of, from what Tobi could tell, him.
The man took in the teens baggy jeans and black and blue plaid hoodie placed on top a simple gray graphic tee, along with the short read hair the peeked out from the hat on his head.
Quickly, Tobi pinched the base of his neck, and the kid went limp.
Seeing this, Deidara hopped down next to his companion and scooped up the male in his arms, heading back to where Pein and the others had now relocated.
With the majority of the Akatsuki
"Itachi," Pein addressed when the Uchiha suddenly appeared, "where is Kisame and the other shinobi you were to capture?"
The raven haired man looked over to the male and female who were both tied against the base of a tree, unconscious, before, turning back to his leader.
"The chakra signature started moving. Kisame went to chase after the ninja; he suggested that since he could handle it alone, that I come here and report in."
Pein nodded, eyes trailing back towards the two captives. "Good work. Now, since you're here, please wake the captives, I'd like to ask them some questions."
The Uchiha nodded and walked up to the tree, kneeling in front of the two. He made a couple hand signs before placing a hand on both their heads.
Slowly they both came to, and the red haired one turned to Itachi, eyes slightly wide.
The man smirked, and his Sharingan, which had been activated, suddenly disappeared, revealing a pair of multicolored eyes.
Both of the captives' eyes widened slightly before they glanced at each other with smirks. By the time Itachi had turned to walk back to the other Akatsuki, the two were glancing around, looking scared.
"What's going on?" the blonde questioned. "Why are we tied up?"
Pein raised an eyebrow, still not used to hearing the foreign language they spoke, and opened his mouth to say something before he was interrupted.
"Pein-sama, the ninja we were pursuing was actually a kage bunshin and-"
The blue shark that had suddenly appeared alongside his partner stopped, staring at the other Uchiha that was standing across the field.
"Why the hell are there two Itachi's?"
"That's what we'd all like to know," Sasori replied got into a defensive stance, along with the other nine members of Akatsuki.
Before the group even had a chance to move, however, the Itachi by the captives suddenly changed into a figure in a black cloak, and had sliced the bonds of the two which were tied up.
The figure didn't get a chance to finish because the real Itachi was there, pointing a kunai against the person's throat.
The figured chuckled, and Itachi noticed the voice seemed slightly feminine.
"Trust me; you don't want to hurt me."
Itachi's eyes narrowed as their own language rolled of the women's tongue. "Why not?" he pressed and the female only chuckled again.
"Itachi," Pein said walking up behind the Uchiha.
The male nodded and reached a hand forward, yanking back the hood of the figure.
All the Akatsuki immediately dropped their guards, staring at the figure in shock.
No, it… it couldn't be. They had… she had left over a year ago.
The Akatsuki continued to stare in shock while the girl raised a hand and saluted them.
"Yo, it's been a while, hasn't it?"
The 10 criminals shared a look before screaming.
Haha, they're back! :D
I didn't want to make you guys wait too long. :P
Short chapter I know, but this is just the beginning.
Hope you all decide to stick along!
