"Naruto, what the hell are you doing? !" Sakura screeched causing said boy to briefly stop pawing through the pockets of the man who had just tried to kill their team.

"He's dead." Naruto said as he crammed the scroll he'd found in the man's pocket into his own pocket.

"Yes, that is obvious Naruto, but that still doesn't explain what you're doing." Kakashi - who looked dead on his feet - asked.

"Only bit of good advice that bastard Mizuki ever gave me was 'You can get free equipment from dead ninjas'." Naruto replied as he tried to drag Zabuza's sword away from his body only to be stopped by a blow from Sakura.

"Have more respect for the dead IDIOT!" Sakura yelled.

The hunter nin then took the opportunity this distraction gave him to grab the body and take off with it before Naruto could find any more treasures.


"Where's my stuff?" Zabuza asked when he turned his head to find the scroll that contained his spare clothes and the vast majority of his supplies and what little cash he had on hand wasn't on the bedside table where it usually was when he was staying indoors.

"I had to convince the Konoha guys that you were all dead rather than mostly dead." Haku replied looking embarrassed and slightly distressed.

"What did you do?" Zabuza asked, knowing he probably didn't want to know the answer.

"I let the small blond one search your clothes for change." Haku mumbled.

"Don't worry, we can get it all back later when you're better Zabuza-sama." Haku said in a tone that was apparently meant to be comforting.

Meanwhile at Tazuna's house:

"Woohoo! Jackpot!"
