In an isolated room in a separate wing of the Konoha hospital two Anbu ninja stood guard outside a sealed door. The room was reserved for treating ninja from other villages that had been captured. Footsteps alerted the two Anbu on guard that someone was approaching. A fellow Konoha ninja dressed in the standard ninja uniform came into their line of sight. He had silver hair and the bottom half of his face was covered by a mask as well as his forehead protector over his left eye.
"Kakashi-sama." Both the Anbu said as they stood aside, releasing the seal on the door.
Kakashi entered the room alone and closed the door behind him. The room was by no means spacious. All it had was a single bed and a single light bulb hanging from the ceiling was the only light source, there were no windows.
Lying on the bed, staring up at the light bulb was a young Konoha ninja. He was dressed in all white, a sign that he was a patient. With his hands a top his spiky hair he sat up to look at the man who just entered the room.
"Things aren't looking good Sasuke." Kakashi admitted.
The Uchiha just stared at him not responding.
"Naruto is in a coma and doesn't look like he is going to wake up anytime soon." Kakashi continued.
"That idiot, if he only stayed in the village." Sasuke mumbled.
"We both know that there would have been no force great enough in Konoha to stop him from going after you. His body isn't healing as fast it should." Kakashi explained.
A pregnant silence developed between student and teacher, neither of them wanting to admit fault over the events that transpired recently. With his left hand trembling, the young Uchiha balled his hand into a fist. He clenched so hard his began to draw blood from his palm.
After their brief talk Kakashi exited the room and began walking towards the main wing of the hospital. Making his way to intensive care unit he found the door he was looking for. A guilty look emanated from his one visible eye. Reaching anxiously for the door handle he finally entered the room. This room was much bigger and looked alike a proper hospital room.
"Sakura?" He said. He was expecting to see a certain pink haired genin watching over the patient but she wasn't there.
Lying unconscious on the bed under a heap of blankets was a spiky haired blonde boy. His faced had several bandages. Looking on Kakashi could only imagine how serve his injuries were. Slowly he approached he bed, a burning sensation creeping across his body. Grabbing at the left side of his neck in pain he stopped. A cloud of smoke materialized and Kakashi disappeared and Sasuke appeared. The Uchiha found a black substance beginning to spread across his body. Feeling himself being engulfed by rage he stumbled away from the blonde boy. Trying to regain control he felt a powerful hit connect with his gut.
Falling on his knees Sasuke began to cough up blood, as he spat out the crimson liquid the rage as well as the black marking resided. Looking up from his ground position the he couldn't believe it. His friend who was supposed to be in coma was awake and standing over him. But something was off.
Naruto was dressed in the same white hospital clothes as Sasuke but the Uchiha could see something was wrong. Naruto's once blue eyes were now red with singles black slit like irises.
"I could sense the hate in your heart." Naruto barked.
"Just because you're still alive after our battle doesn't mean you can lecture me on anything." Sasuke retorted.
"Our battle never finished." Naruto continued his voice filled with something malevolent.
"The loser thinks he can beat me." Sasuke rebutted, this time activating his fully developed sharingan.
After the Uchiha picked himself up a staring contest between the Sasuke's sharingan and Naruto's nine tails eyes began. With his hand on his gut Sasuke stepped forward until he was nose to nose with Naruto. Using his superior speed and the fact Naruto was injured; Sasuke disappeared and reappeared behind Naruto. He used his left arm to put the blonde ninja in a head lock. The Uchiha heir used the knuckles of his right hand to press against the back of Naruto's head in back and forth motion.
"This isn't funny." Naruto screamed as he struggled against Sasuke. His eyes were back to their natural shade of blue.
Releasing the blonde from his grip Sasuke jumped onto the hospital bed. He was different, something about the fight with his rival and friend had changed him. Instead of the usual depressed look, he was smiling.
"It's good to see this Sasuke. It's been a long time since he was around." Naruto commented as he tried to stretch his aching back.
"Don't hurt yourself kid, tomorrow at noon. Meet on the roof. We're going to finish the battle that Kakashi stopped." Sasuke said jumping off the bed and walking to the door.
Unlike the last time Sasuke made this challenge his voice was calm. It wasn't filled with spite, jealousy or hatred.
"Don't forget your forehead protector." Naruto laughed, pointing to his forehead on to realize his was missing.
The hyper active ninja began to frantically search around the room for the forehead protector that his sensei had given to him when he was made a genin. With a small laugh Sasuke left the room satisfied that his team mate had survived the battle.
When the slammed shut Naruto cast a hand seal and yelled "Shadow clone jutsu." Three exact copies of himself appeared next to him a puff of smoke. With four people helping the search, they tore the hospital room apart searching for his cherished possession. When the entire room was wrecked the door crept open. Standing in the doorway was an attractive blonde woman. She wore a green robe with the kanji for gamble written in black on the back, inside a red circle. Underneath she wore a grey, kimono-style blouse with no sleeves, held closed by a broad, dark bluish-grey obi that matches her pants. Her blouse was closed quite low, revealing her ample cleavage.
A look sheer joy plastered her face as she saw the young blonde ninja running around the room. The look of joy was soon replaced by one of annoyance when she realized that he had torn apart the entire room.
"I can explain." He said as his shadow clones turned to smoke.
The older woman didn't respond instead she just embrace him a hug that crushed him.
"You're supposed to be resting." She cried softly.
In a small dimly lit room three elderly people were gathering. The first was an old man with a cane. He had black shaggy hair, and his right eye was bandage. He had an x-shaped scar on his chin, it was a very old scar because there signs of it healing over time. He wore a white shirt, with a brown robe over top of it covering from his feet, to just over his right shoulder.
The second was another old man; he had grey hair, a beard and glasses. It was unclear why but he had a frown on his face. His entire body was covered by a grayish robe. The third was an old woman; her hair was pulled back in a twin bun locked by a traditional Japanese hair pin with two pearls dangling off the side. She was wearing a simple long kimono, closed by an obi, a jacket and a sash over it.
"Danzo Shimura, code word Hogo no kage (shadow of protection)." The first man said.
"Homura Mitokado, code word Fukōna piero (unhappy clown)." The second man added.
"Koharu Utatane, code word Buraindo shinjitsu (blind truth)." The woman said.
A short silence followed before the leader of the three spoke up.
"Good, now that we've confirmed that we are who we say we are, the meeting can begin." Danzo announced softly.
"What is the meaning of this?" Koharu asked a bit ticked off.
"I believe this has to do with the nine tails." Homura theorized.
"Nothing get's past you. I read Sasuke's and Naruto's versions of the events that transpired at final valley. The nine tails brat was reluctant to admit it but from what we can gather from the Uchiha's report, there came a point where Naruto called on the nine tails strength to stop Sasuke." Danzo explained.
"That is indeed troubling." Koharu noted nodding her head.
"I don't see the problem. If he can truly control the power of the nine tails, then he would be a great asset for the village." Homura pondered out loud.
"If we allow that power to be control by the brat then we are all doomed. I've watched him his whole life and seen the suffering he has endured within the walls of this village. The rage inside him is building like a dam, a dam that will one day burst and unleash the fury of the nine tails upon us." Danzo answered.
"Not to mention his bond with the Uchiha is troubling. If Sasuke can master his sharingan, he may be able to take control of the nine tails and turn its power on Konoha." Koharu added.
"Our past actions would one day catch up with us. That is the nature of karma." Homura commented as he dropped his head in shame.
"The past will stay in the past. I have a plan to rid us of the brat and obtain the perfect weapon." Danzo said with an evil grin over his normally emotionless face.
On top of the hospital roof waited a young blonde boy. He was wearing an orange tracksuit. The tracksuit had blue areas on the upper shoulders as well as around the waist and a white swirl with a tassel on the left side. The tracksuit had a red swirl on the back of the jacket, a large white collar, orange pants, blue sandals. He had on a blue forehead protector that was given to him by his sensei.
As he paced around another young boy appeared. He had spiky black hair. He was wearing a blue, short-sleeved shirt with a raised collar and the Uchiha crest on the back and white arm warmers with white shorts and black sandals.
"I see you didn't chicken out Naruto." Sasuke taunted as he tied on his forehead protector.
"I can't let you go walking around the village thinking you beat me, the next Hokage." Naruto said pointing to himself with his thumb.
"I owe you one for this." Sasuke said as he pointed to the deep scratch across his forehead protector.
"You can try but I doubt you will." Naruto smirked.
"Let's make this fare. This will be just a plain taijutsu battle. We'll just do the talking with our fists. According to Kakashi you're in no condition to be casting any jutsu's." Sasuke laughed. "I won't use my sharingan."
"Before you said that you had a chance of beating me but now you don't." Naruto said before rushing as Sasuke.
Throwing a right punch Naruto completely missed because he was off balance. He had still not fully recovered was suffering from pain in his legs. Sasuke grabbed Naruto's right arm and locked it in an arm bar.
"I guess once a clown always a clown." Sasuke laughed.
"I'll show you who the clown is." Naruto said as he broke free with sheer strength.
Sasuke jumped away before charging in and attempting low sweep. Naruto back flipped away but ended up landing on his head.
"You're too beat up to fight." Sasuke muttered as he walked over to help Naruto up.
As Sasuke picked up the blonde ninja he sensed something incoming. Quickly he tossed Naruto aside, saving him from being hit by three medical needles. The needles in bedded themselves in the concrete on impact. Naruto and Sasuke both realized that they were surrounded.
There were ten people all wearing porcelain animal masks that concealed their identities. The rest of their bodies were covered by black cloaks. These weren't ordinary ANBU. Naruto and Sasuke could tell they were in trouble.
The Uchiha activated his sharingan when he released Naruto wouldn't be able to fight at his best. One of the ten mystery ninja appeared in front of them holding a scroll. Sasuke stared at the scroll unsure of what the person was planning. Naruto gathered up his chakra as he prepared to call upon his shadow clone technique. His attention was broken by the sound of Sasuke falling over. Naruto's eyes grew wide as he saw two needles in the back of Sasuke's neck. The man with scroll was a diversion.
Naruto's eyes changed from blue to red as he felt the nine tails take control. Then he blacked out.
"Wake up you idiot."
Naruto opened his eyes to see Sasuke clutching the back of his neck. They were still on the roof and the ten strangers were all unconscious.
"I don't know how you did it but you did." Sasuke said as he extended his free hand to help Naruto up.
"Are they…" Naruto asked unsure if he wanted the answer.
"Don't worry you idiot. They're alive. We need to get out of her now." Sasuke said as he jumped of the roof to another building followed by Naruto.
"Lady Hokage!" Koharu screamed as she burst into the Hokage office.
"Shizune, I thought I told you I didn't want to be disturbed." Tsunade shouted as she quickly hid her sake.
A lady with shoulder length black hair dressed in a long bluish-black kimono with white trimmings, held closed by a white obi followed Koharu.
"I sorry Tsunade-sama but its really important." Shizune said with tears in her eyes.
Seeing her former student and friend crying the Hokage realized it must be something important.
"Naruto and Sasuke were fighting on the roof…" Koharu started explaining.
"What!" Tsunade roared slamming her fist into the desk breaking it.
"As I was saying, to stop the two genin from battling a team of ANBU stepped in. After they subdued Sasuke with a paralyze needle attack Naruto lost control and summoned the power of the nine tails." Koharu finished.
"How bad is it?" Tsunade asked as her throat swelled up. She knew that there only a few things that could play on Naruto's anger and his friends getting hurt was one of them.
"Of the 11 ANBU who intervened only one is still with us." Koharu explained.
"That can't be true." Tsunade said as she stopped herself from running and killing the old lady.
"It is. Naruto and Sasuke fled. They're hiding in the old police station the Uchiha clan used to control." Koharu piled onto Tsunade's misery. "We have Asuma Sarutobi, Might Guy and Kurenai Yuhi waiting to go in and arrest them."
"As far as I'm concerned Naruto is innocent. You tell them not to harm a hair on his head. If he doesn't want to surrender call me. No one lays a hand on him." Tsunade roared.
In the lobby of the abandoned Konoha police Sasuke and Naruto waited. It was completely empty and decrepit. There was dust and dirt everywhere.
"You're in this mess because of me." Sasuke admitted as he sealed the door shut.
"What are you talking about? Those were enemy ninja out there." Naruto responded.
"They were Konoha ninja. They were part of a division I've never heard of but they were part of Konoha." Sasuke explained.
"Why would they be after you?" Naruto asked confused.
"I tried to run away from the village. They were probably sent to arrest me." Sasuke shouted losing his patience.
"Grandma Tsunade promised." Naruto mumbled under his breath.
"People break promises Naruto." Sasuke replied activating his sharingan. "You need to get away from me. You have your dream of being Hokage and getting arrested could ruin that."
"What kind of Hokage would I be if I couldn't save one friend?" Naruto smirked as he stood his ground.
"Why are you doing this?" Sasuke question perplexed.
"You said I was your closest friend and well you're my closest friend too." Naruto laughed.
Outside the police station three jonin level ninja waited. The rest of the building was surrounded by ANBU. The first jonin who stood in front of the door had thick eyebrows and black hair cut in a bowl. He wore a green jumpsuit, orange striped leg warmers and a standard Konoha flak jacket. His forehead protector was on a red cloth and was worn around his waist, like a belt.
"Naruto, Sasuke, I know the passion of youth burns brightly in you so I know you'll what's right." He cried.
Behind him the other two jonin looked at each other concerned. The man had brown eyes, short, black spiky hair and a beard. He wore a standard Konoha ninja uniform with the sleeves rolled up half way. Around his waist was sash that had the kanji for "Fire". Playing with an unlit cigarette in his mouth he looked at the woman next to him. She had long, black, shoulder-length hair, and red eyes. She was wearing a red mesh armor blouse with only the right sleeve visible. Over that was very broad material which resembles bandages with a pattern on it similar to those of rose thorns. Her hands and upper thighs are also wrapped in bandages.
"Kurenai do you think it was a good idea to have Guy talk to them." He said.
"I don't know Asuma. I can't believe Naruto did all those things." She replied.
Inside the police station Naruto and Sasuke could hear a familiar voice screaming about youth and passion.
"Bushy brow sensei is that really you?" Naruto asked standing next to the door.
"Yes, how could you betray your burning youth Naruto?" Guy screamed, it sounded like he was crying.
"What are you talking about?" Naruto was worried now.
"Naruto, those ANBU you fought are all dead. I'm here to arrest you and Sasuke." Guy continued to cry out.
The ninja in the bright orange uniform fell to his knees. His body was beginning to go numb.
"You're lying!" Sasuke screamed. "Those ANBU were alive when we left. I saw it with my sharingan. They were just stunned; none of them were fatally wounded."
Sasuke grabbed Naruto's collar as he tried to drag the depressed ninja out towards the secret exit. The Uchiha found it hard as Naruto was practically dead weight. Just as they were at the secret escape route they heard someone shout. "Dynamic entry."
Guy burst through the door, breaking Sasuke's weak seal. With Naruto in a state of shock, Sasuke took up a defensive position in front of his friend. As he prepared to take on the jonin before him the walls to the lobby exploded and the room filled with ANBU. The ANBU were dressed exactly the same as the people who attacked them on the roof. The ANBU began throwing chains at Sasuke. Using his sharingan he avoided all the chains until he was hit with a swift upper kick that launched him into the air leaving him in a vulnerable aerial position where the chain easily wrapped around him. The chains began to cut off his chakra, deactivating his sharingan. After Sasuke was capture ANBU proceeded to wrap Naruto in similar chains.
"Naruto activate your power now. Use your red cloak power." Sasuke screamed as he struggled against chain that was being tightened by the ANBU.
Naruto's mind had suffered a sudden breakdown and he couldn't respond to the outside world.
Two days after Naruto and Sasuke were arrested.
In a large well lit room, several of the top officials in Konoha gathered. There were three tables all focus around two empty seats. The tables were on raised platforms looking down at the seats. Sitting in the middle of the biggest table looking directly at the empty seats was the Hokage, Tsunade. Sitting next to her was the Konoha council, Homura Mitokado and Koharu Utatane as well as her assistant Shizune. In the table to the left of the Hokage were Danzo Shimura and a team of ANBU Root. Seated at the table to the right of Tsunade were Asuma Sarutobi, Shikaku Nara, Choza Akimichi, Inoichi Yamanaka and Hiashi Hyuga.
The door to the room slowly opened and Naruto and Sasuke wear escorted into the room. They both had their legs shackled and were wearing straitjackets that had a chakra suppressing seal. They were forced to sit in the two empty seats in front of everyone. Naruto stared at the ground blankly as Sasuke glared menacingly at everyone.
"Naruto Uzumaki, you are being charged with ten counts of murder of Konoha ANBU and one count of attempted murder. Sasuke Uchiha, you are being charged with treason and facilitating murder." Koharu read the charges as she rose from her seat. "How do you plead?"
"We're both innocent!" Sasuke shouted knowing that Naruto was still mentally blocked.
Koharu took her seat and Danzo rose. "It will be my job to present the evidence and the job of the jonin elite to decide on a verdict." He said as he motioned to the table across his.
Asuma tried to light a cigarette as Danzo pointed at him but Shikaku stopped him.
"Sasuke Uchiha, in your own words, tell us what happened on the roof of the hospital after you and Naruto Uzumaki fought." Danzo turned the attention to Sasuke.
The previous day
Sasuke struggled as he fought against the straitjacket in his small prison cell. Laying on the bed trying to break free he struggled to call upon his curse seal. Realizing it was hopeless he still continued to struggle.
"Poor Sasuke." A voice from outside the prison cell called out.
Sasuke peered through the iron bars but saw nothing.
"Just listen, don't say anything. Do you want to know why Naruto is so strong? Twelve years ago, a powerful creature known as the Nine-tailed Demon Fox attacked the village, killing many people. To save the village the Fourth Hokage sacrificed his life to seal the demon inside the newborn Naruto Uzumaki. Now Naruto is the living embodiment of that demon. The demon supplies him his strength. If Naruto is found guilty, he will be executed and the Nine-tailed Demon Fox will need a new host. You being an Uchiha would be perfect. If you gave a testimony convicting Naruto, it'll go a long way in giving you the strength to kill Itachi."
"We were on the roof when we were attacked. ANBU failed to identify themselves. Naruto fought them off and we left them their alive and well. None of them were dying." Sasuke shouted ignoring his memory.
Danzo flinched at the statement but hid it quickly. "Fine, lie to us. I have more than enough evidence. First we'll go with some character evidence on Nine-tailed Demon Fox host."
"Danzo you're forbidden to talk about that with Sasuke in the room!" Tsunade shouted.
"Hokage-sama the Uchiha boy already knows about the demon fox. In his fight against Naruto he saw the demon manifest." Danzo explained.
Tsunade wasn't happy and continued to glare at the head of ANBU Root.
A member handed Danzo a file before handing out copies to everyone in the room except Sasuke and Naruto.
"This is a transcription of a conversation between Sakura Haruno and Ino Yamanaka." Danzo said coldly as he had an ANBU play back a recording.
"Sakura!" A first female voice cried. "They arrested Sasuke!"
"What on earth are you talking about Ino?" The second voice responded.
"My dad told me he was going to be part of a trial involving Naruto and Sasuke."
"If Naruto is involved it must be his fault. He must have dragged Sasuke down with him."
"I don't know, didn't Sasuke try to run away from the village." Ino asked.
"But he came back and Hokage-sama said she would give him another chance. This is just like Naruto to do something irresponsible and get poor Sasuke involved." Sakura answered.
"You're probably right. Sasuke would never to anything to get himself arrested by ANBU."
"Naruto is reckless, immature, idiotic and undisciplined. That's what happens when you grow up without parents. He has no boundaries; he thinks he can do anything."
"Sakura you can't say things like that."
"Why not, it's true. Everything I said about Naruto is true."
"Not that. I meant the parents thing. Sasuke grew up without parents."
"Sasuke is Sasuke. He is amazing."
"But now his in jail." Ino cried.
"Don't cry Ino. I'm sure the Hokage will sort things out. After all she loves that fool Naruto. And when everyone sees that it's Naruto's fault, Hokage-sama will pardon them." Sakura tried comforting her friend.
"But how do you know its Naruto's fault."
"I'm on the same team as him. It's always his fault."
Danzo raised his hand signaling the ANBU to stop the recording. Tsunade cursed under her breath at her student. Homura and Koharu both looked at each other, communicating solely through glances.
"I hate technology." Sasuke muttered.
"Is that all?" Shikaku asked. "You don't expect us to make a verdict based on two girls gossiping."
"This is just the beginning. Here we have a report written by the jonin in charge of Team 7." Danzo said as he held up a file. A member of Root handed out copies of the file just like before. "This report was based on his first opinion of the team a few days after meeting them."
The jonin elite as well as the Hokage and her council paged through the report reading what Kakashi had written about his team. Tsunade's grip tightened on the file as she read Naruto's review.
Danzo cleared his throat as he prepared to read the review. "Naruto Uzumaki: Naruto has a craving for acknowledgement. In order to feed this craving Naruto pull pranks to get noticed. He smiles to mask the sadness of his lonely life. Due to the prejudice and loneliness he suffered in his childhood at the hands of the village his emotional growth has been severely slowed."
Tsunade cringed; she knew Danzo was painting the picture of a child who was too irresponsible to handle the power of the Nine-tailed Demon Fox. Even as the Hokage she couldn't pardon someone over the charge of murder. She believed that Naruto was innocent but he wasn't talking. Something was wrong with him, he couldn't speak and now Danzo was making him out to be something he wasn't and he couldn't respond. She prayed that Sasuke would be able to prove Naruto's innocence.
After a brief pause Danzo continued: "Sasuke Uchiha: Sasuke appears cold, lonely, cynical and arrogant. Sasuke has both superiority and an inferiority complex, as he is unwilling to acknowledge when someone is stronger than him, but obsesses when he believes that they are. He has devoted his life to killing Itachi and in the process declared himself the clan avenger."
"Danzo, these are serious charges. These reports mean nothing. I want to hear from the surviving ANBU agent." Hiashi demanded.
"I'm sorry Hiashi but he is in the Konoha hospital under intensive care." Danzo said.
Tsunade didn't like this. If the only witness was still in the hospital why did Danzo push to have the trial so soon?
"The boy is a demon in human form. The Fourth Hokage created a monster when he sealed the demon fox in Naruto." Danzo accused.
"That's enough!" Tsunade snapped.
"Tsunade it's not your place to hamper the prosecution." Koharu scolded.
Tsunade held back the urge to beat the living daylights out of the old woman and Danzo. She wanted Naruto to say something in his own defense.
"Even he knows he is a monster. Why do you think he keeps quite?" Danzo pointed out. "The Nine-tailed Demon Fox is linked directly to his anger. When he was approached by the ANBU on the roof he lost his temper and summoned the demons power."
After all the character bashing Naruto finally lifted his head. Tsunade was about to smile until she saw the boys face. His blue eyes had become red and pupils became slit shaped. Letting out a growl he showed that his canine teeth grow longer and sharper and his blonde hair grew longer and spikier, as it stood on end.
"If you don't believe me see for yourself. The boy is tapping into the power of the demon fox." Danzo shouted.
The jonin elite were taken back, the straitjacket was supposed to suppress all chakra.
"The Nine-tailed Demon Fox should be extracted and placed in a suitable host." Koharu spoke out much to everyone's surprise.
Shizune jumped to hold Tsunade back from killing the old woman.
"Extracting the nine tails will kill Naruto." Tsunade barked.
"A fitting punishment. A punishment that Uzumaki and Uchiha will share." Danzo proposed. "What say you jonin elite?"
"This is crazy. We didn't kill anyone!" Sasuke shouted.
Shizune struggled to hold back Tsunade as Koharu took over the duty of asking for the verdict.
"Asuma Sarutobi, head of the Sarutobi clan." She asked.
Lighting his cigarette he paused before he spoke, "Guilty."
"Shikaku Nara, head of the Nara clan."
Just like his son he mumbled about something being troublesome. "Guilty."
"Choza Akimichi, head of the Akimichi clan."
With his head bowed and heavy heart and spoke. "Guilty."
"Inoichi Yamanaka, head of the Yamanaka clan."
Pulling out a small asphodel flower that symbolized regret he spoke. "Guilty."
"Hiashi Hyuga, head of the Hyuga clan."
"Guilty." Was all he said.
Tsunade was livid. This wasn't a trial it was a witch hunt. She couldn't believe the jonin elite had come up with that verdict.
"I didn't come back just to die!" Sasuke screamed as black marks began spreading across his face.
Seeing this Danzo ordered a member of his ANBU to attack before the ANBU to hit Sasuke he was blasted way by red chakra. Naruto's body was encased by bubbling chakra, taking on the shape of a one-tailed fox. Using the power of the demon fox he burst free from the straitjacket. The back of Sasuke's straitjacket began to bulge as two hand shaped wings tore the straitjacket open.
With Sasuke taking his curse seal to level two and Naruto calling on the demon fox's power the room filled with ANBU. Tsunade looked on in horror as the boy she thought of like her own blood was being treated like an animal. She wanted to say something but she knew she wasn't looking at Naruto anymore; she was looking at the Nine-tailed Fox.
Naruto held out his right hand and blue ball of spiraling chakra formed in it. Crouching his knees Naruto jumped into the air and thrust his arm upwards, using his rasengan to break through the roof and escape. Sasuke took off with his wings and followed Naruto.
"After them!" Danzo screamed as the ANBU gave chase.
