It took the Konoha shinobi two weeks to return to Konoha because Koyuki had them stay a few extra days to relax; they are currently being debriefed by Tsunade.
After reading Koyuki's letter and getting a brief summery from them Tsunade said "Good job all of you; you all may have a week off to rest and I want a written report from both Kakashi and Naruto about their respective missions by tomorrow. Also a Kisuke Urahara came by and wanted you to meet him at his shop."
As they walked out of Tsunade's office Naruto disappeared via a Shunshin, only to reappear a few minutes later in front of Kisuke's shop; as he entered the shop he saw Tessai helping a couple costumers and Kisuke helping a Jonin with her purchase.
When Kisuke noticed Naruto he said "Go through the door on the left and enter the basement and I'll be there in a few minutes; I have something for you."
Naruto entered the basement and looked on in wonder at the amazing plains like landscape complete with sun and clouds.
Kisuke appeared behind him and said "It's a magnificent work of fuinjutsu isn't it?"
Naruto nodded and said "This must be some kind of seal to create a pocket dimension."
Kisuke smirked and said "Very good, can you think of anything else?"
After a few moments Naruto said "Since you probably use this to train, I would say there are chakra blocking and self-repair seals. Also unless you have a strong earth user I would say you also have durability seals."
Kisuke smiled and said "Very good deduction Naruto and can you guess the reason I brought you down here?"
Naruto popped his neck and said "So I can train large scale techniques without destroying the training grounds."
Kisuke brought his fan in front of his face and said "That's one of the reason's; the other reason is because I have a family heirloom to give you."
Naruto spun around to see Tessai holding a 5½ foot long sword; the blade was a red 4½ foot doubled edged broadsword, the hilt was shaped with two wings on either side of a round dark blue jewel, and the handle was 1 foot long with a stylized rapier hand guard connected to a small metal claw at the bottom with another dark blue jewel inside of the claw.
Naruto picked it up as Kisuke said "That sword belonged to the son of the Uzumaki clan head named Genesis, who was the leader of Uzushiogakure when it was destroyed. He was the second in command of Uzushiogakure's elite shinobi known as Soldier, until he became clan head and their childhood friend Angeal took his place. When the village fell; Genesis along with Sephiroth and a warrior named Angeal lead the remaining shinobi of Soldier in the final battle against the combined forces of Kumo and Iwa. Unfortunately Konoha arrived too late to save them and all they found were their bodies and thousands of shinobi from both sides dead. Your mother was present to help bury the bodies and get any of the clan scrolls that survived. As they left she used a jutsu taught to her to cause the island to be surrounded by whirlpools that would destroy any one trying to get in by see and a protective dome that protected from the air."
Naruto smiled with tears in his eyes and said "Thank you for this Urahara-san."
Kisuke closed his fan and said "I'm also going to personally instruct you in kenjutsu, until you become a master of that sword."
Naruto nodded and said "So when due we begin?"
Kisuke disappeared; Naruto quickly brought his sword over his head to block an overhand strike from Kisuke's cane sword.
With a smirk on his face Kisuke said "Now."
Naruto is currently relaxing in his apartment when a knock on his door caused him to groan; when he opened the door he was surprised to see a Boar masked ANBU standing there.
Boar said "Hokage-sama request's your presence immediately."
Naruto nodded and said "I'll be there in a few minutes."
Naruto shut the door, grabbed his supply and kunai pouch, sealed his sword into a seal on his hand, hooked his staff to his back and Mjolnir on his side, and slipped on his coat before activating his locking and security seals, before using a Shunshin to appear in Tsunade's office.
Naruto looked at Tsunade and said "What do you need baa-chan?"
Tsunade eye twitched and said "You need to wait for Shikamaru to come."
It was a few minutes later when Shikamaru entered the office.
Tsunade stood up straight and said "Last night around 9pm Sauske Uchiha left the village; it is assumed he is heading to Orochimaru. You two are to create a team to pursue Sauske; I know Orochimaru and he wouldn't let him go alone so expect some resistance. Unfortunatly I don't have any Jonin or Chunin to send with you; so you have twenty minutes to recruit a team of strong genin to accompany you. Naruto you're the leader with Shikamaru second in command; bring the Uchiha back by any means necessary."
Naurto nodded and said "Hai Hokage-sama."
Naurto and Shikamaru exited the Hokage tower and started thinking who they should take.
After a few moments Naruto said "We definitely need to get Neji, since he's one of the strongest genin."
Shikamaru nodded and said "We also need a tracker, so Kiba is a must and we can use Choji for muscle."
15 minutes later the five Konoha Shinobi are exiting the gates with great speed, they stopped several minutes out to talk strategy.
Naruto looked at Shikamaru and said "You're the strategist of the group Shikamaru, so what's our formation?"
Shikamaru thought for a few moments and said "Kiba will be first so he can track Sasuke, Choji will be next to back him up if needed; Naruto you'll be in the center to allow you to react to any situation quickly, I'll be after you so I can formulate plans as need. Neji will be last so he can cover our backs with his Byakugan; they have a ten hour lead on us so we need to hurry to catch up."
It was a few hours later when Kiba stopped them.
Kiba said "The group that has Sasuke is half a mile out."
Naruto nodded and said "From here on out we go in silent; we only have one chance to sneak up on them."
20 minutes later they came across four people and a large barrel. There are 3 guys and one woman. There was a large man with a strip of orange hair on top of his head and on the sides, one man hand black hair and four arms, the other man had silver hair with a covered bump between his shoulder blades, and the woman wore a cap and had long read hair.
The woman with long red hair said "Are you shitheads ready to go?"
The large man said "Lady's shouldn't curse Tayuya."
Tayuya growled and said "Shut up fat ass we need to hurry up and get back to Oto."
The silver haired man said "She's right Jirobo; are you ready Kidomaru."
Kidomaru smirked and said "Of course Sakon, but we have some pests to take care of."
Kidomaru pulled his hand up and brought the Konoha shinobi out of the tree line via a web attached to their legs. When they landed Jirobo flipped through a few handseals and said "Doton Kekkai: Dorō Dōmu!" and created a large dome to cover the Konoha shinobi.
Jirobo said "Get back to Orochimaru-sama; I'll be there after I eat."
Kidomaru nodded and said "Don't take too long."
Inside the dome…
Shikamaru said "Neji, activate your Byakugan and tell me what's going on outside?"
Neji's veins bulged, but quickly deactivated them and said "The large one is holding up the barrier while the rest left with Sasuke. This dome is also draining our chakra."
Shikamaru scowled and said "We need to get out of here soon."
After a few moments Naruto said "Everyone get behind me, I have an idea."
Once everyone was behind him Naruto started to spin Mjolnir by the strap while simultaneously charging it with lighting; a few moments later Naruto tossed it forward where it smashed through the front of the dome and slamming into Jirobo and sending him through a tree; which caused the dome to collapse. Naruto recalled Mjolnir to his hand as Jirobo stepped into the clearing unharmed.
Naruto looked at him and said "It's a good thing for you that the dome zapped the lighting and some of the power from my attack."
Jirobo scowled and said "I'll kill you all."
Choji stepped forward and said "You guys go on ahead, I'll deal with him."
Naruto said "We should stick together."
Choji shook his head snad said "We can't let them get to Orochimaru, so go I'll be fine."
Before they left Shikamaru said "I don't want to deal with Ino alone, so stay alive."
It was 20 minutes later when golden nets slammed into them and sticking them to a couple of trees; they looked up at the sound of laughter and said Kidomaru hanging upside down one a branch.
Kidomaru smirked and said "I don't know how you got past Jirobo, but none of you are getting any further thanks to my webs."
Neji activated his Byakugan and smirked; with a quick burst of chakra the web exploded off of him. He quickly went to work freeing the others.
Neji said "The webs he uses have chakra flowing through them; I'm the best opponent for him."
With a nod the remaining three leaped through the trees after Sauske; it was ten minutes later when they stopped because Sakon stood in their way.
Sakon smirked and said "You trash aren't going anywhere."
Kiba smirked and said "Trash are we; you guys go on ahead I'll deal with him."
Sakon's smirk grew as Shikamaru and Naruto passed him heading towards Tayuya and Sasuke; however they quickly back pedaled and two arms extended from his shoulders and tried to grab them.
Naruto looked at Sakon and said "How the hell do you have extra arms?"
Sakon smiled and said "Because we are two."
The bump on his back started to move before Sakon turned sideways and showed it was another head and not a bump.
The second head said "Hello, my name is Ukon and I'm Sakon's brother."
Kiba scowled slightly and said "That's new, but it doesn't matter. Let's go Akamaru!"
Kiba and Akamaru engaged Sakon and Ukon; while Shikamaru and Naruto went forward. It was thirty more minutes before the caught up with Tayuya. She stopped on a branch and got ready to defend herself when a voice caused her to freeze.
A deep voice said "I wondered what was taking you so long."
They looked to see a figure with pale skin, vivid green eyes, masculine facial features, two scarlet dots on his forehead and shoulder-length white hair, which he wore, divided down the middle on his head with two separate partings on either side of his face. He wore a light lavender, loose-fitting, long-sleeved, zip-up shirt, black pants cut off around mid-calf, bandages wrapped around his ankles, traditional shinobi sandals, and a purple, rope-like belt tied in an inverted bow around his waist. He also wore two red, tube-like hair ornaments; one on either side of his head, securing two locks of his silvery-white hair. He did not wear a headband like the rest.
Tayuya said "We were on our way Kimimaro, but these leaf shinobi caught us.
Kimimaro scowled and said "Give me Sasuke Uchiha and you deal with them."
Tayuya tossed the barrel to him; he placed hit on his back before running away at great speed.
Shikamaru said "Go after him; you're the strongest out of us. I'll deal with this troublesome woman."
Naruto nodded and said "Don't die on me Shika."
Naruto pumped a little chakra to his legs, before speeding off after Kimimaro. It was another ten minutes before Naruto caught up with him in a large clearing, which he looked to be waiting for something. Naruto got his answer when the barrel shook violently before exploding and releasing a cloud of smoke. When the smoke cleared it revealed Sasuke looking at his hands.
Naruto said "Glad you could join us Sasuke, now let's get back to Konoha."
Sasuke looked back before running off towards Oto.
Naruto scowled, unhooked Mjolnir and said "Of course he makes this difficult."
Naruto charged Kimimaro and swung Mjolnir in an overhead arch; Kimimaro stepped back to avoid the strike and the follow up spinning axe kick after Mjolnir hit the ground. Naruto charged again and started to attack and put Kimimaro on the defensive for a few moments before Kimimaro sent a palm strike towards Naruto's face. Naruto dodged backwards, but had to quickly shunshined several feet away to avoid the white rod that extended from Kimimaro's palm.
Naruto looked at the rod and said "That was unexpected; who are you?"
Kimimaro said "My name is Kimimaro Kaguya and you will die today."
Kimimaro looked on in confusion as Naruto hooked Mjolnir on it clip, grabbed a small gold tipped red rod off his lower back.
Naruto said "The Kaguya clan from Kiri; who is said to have the bloodline Shikotsumyaku (Dead Bone Plus). That makes attacking you in close quarters very dangerous."
Kimimaro smirked and said "How is a small stick going to help trash like you?"
Naruto charged towards Kimimaro and when he was several feet away he swung his stick with a baseball swing; Kimimaro's smirk disappeared when the stick quickly extended to cover the distance and sent sideways several feet after being struck in the ribs. Kimimaro recovered quickly, formed twin bone blades and started to defend himself from Naruto's strikes; after several moments Naruto jumped back pointed his palm at Kimimaro sasid "Raiton: Gian!" and started to fire several spear shaped bolts of lightning bolts. In an impressive display of speed and agility; Kimimaro dodged the bolts, before pointing his fingers at Naruto and fired several small bits of bone with incredible speed. Naruto's eyes widened before quickly used a Shunshin to avoid them; only to quickly dodge several bone blades extending out of Kimimaro's knees, elbows, and the ones in his hands. It was several minutes into their fight when a shout of "Dynamic Entry!" and a blue sandal slammed into Kimimaro's face sending him flying to the side several feet.
Naruto looked surprised at the new comer and said "Busy Brows what are you doing here?"
Lee smiled and said "I'm here to help you retrieve Sasuke."
Naruto looked at Lee and said "What about your injuries?"
Lee grabbed a bottle out of his supply pouch and said "As long as I have this medicine Hokage-sama made me; I'm good to fight."
Naruto said "Stay alive Lee; I want a spar when your better."
Lee smiled and said "Yosh! Now go retrieve our comrade."
As Naruto left he whispered "If he still is."
It was 10 minutes later when Naruto stood atop Harishima's statue at the Valley of the End; looking across to Sasuke who stood upon Madara's head.
Sasuke smirked and said "What took you so long dobe?"
Naruto said "Come back to Konoha so you can get Kakashi to train you."
Sasuke scowled and said "Konoha isn't going to give me the power I need to kill my brother; so I'm going to someone who can."
Naruto scowled and said "The Senin, Kakashi, Hokage-jiji, the 4th Hokage, and even your brother all gained their strength in Konoha; so please chose your next words carefully."
Sauske smirked arrogantly and said "I'm going to Orochimaru; he'll give me the power I need to kill Itiachi. Once he's dead I'll come back and restart the Uchiha clan."
Naruto said "You're abandoning Konoha to join one of its greatest nuke-nin; who also a few months ago attacked our village and killed the 3rd Hokage?"
Sasuke nodded and said "I see you can figure out something's."
Naruto sighed and said "Then on behalf of Hokage-sama and Konoha; I hereby place you under arrest and do not resist."
Sasuke activated his Sharingan and said "I'd like to see you try."
Sasuke took the Uchiha Interceptor style while Naruto took a modified Muay Thai stance. Sasuke charged forward and threw a right straight; Naruto deflected the strike and sent a right body kick. Sasuke's Sharingan caught the movement; he stepped back to avoid the kick and quickly used chakra to jump back to avoid Naruto's rising knee strike. Sasuke scowled before charging Naruto again; they met in a flurry of punches, kicks, and knees.
Sasuke jumped back, went through six hand seals and said "Katon: Gōkakyū no Jutsu!" and sent a large ball of fire towards Naruto; Naruto flipped through three hand seals and said "Suiton: Suijinheki!" and created a wall of water to block the attack; which caused a large amount of steam to appear. Naruto used the steam as cover, flipped through several hand seals and said "Suiton: Suiryūdan no Jutsu!" and created a large water dragon that burst from, the steam and charged Sasuke with great; Sasuke managed to avoid it with his Sharingan. Naruto appeared in front of Sasuke via a Shunshin and proceeded to land a series of punches and elbows before finishing off with an uppercut sending Sauske into the air. Sasuke rihghted himself in the air as black flames patterns covered his body. Sasuke went throught six handseals and said "Katon: Gōkakyū no Jutsu!" and expelled a much larger and faster fireball at Naruto. Naruto used a Shunshin to avoid the attack and was immediately put on the defensive by Sasuke and his three tomoe Sharingan. Naruto blocked several punches and kicks before one of Sasuke's punches got thro9ught his guard and slammed into his stomach; Sasuke followed up with a left right combo to Naruto's face, before ending with a spin kick to Naruto's stomach, sending him back several feet.
Sasuke smirked and said "I'm already powerful and ii haven't even started to learn anything from Orochimaru; once I learn everything from him, I'll be invincible."
Naruto started to laugh and said "Only managing to land a few hits on me since the stat of the fight and you already think you've won. I'll admit using the curse mark increased your abilities from mid chunin to nearly a Jōnin is impressive. However that allows me to not hold back as much."
Naruto disappeared, only to reappear in front of Sasuke with a fist buried in Sasuke's stomach.
Naruto smirked and said "Now it's my turn."
Naruto got Sasuke in his clinch and started to deliver a couple powerful knee strikes to his sides and stomach; Naruto slammed a knee into Sasuke's face. Naruto followed that up with a couple left jabs, a right elbow strike, and finally slammed the side of his fist together while charging some chakra; with a shout of "Tiger Shot!" he released the chakra in a blast that sent Sasuke flying back and slamming into the feet of Madara's statue. Naruto started to walk forwards, but a large burst of malevolent chakra caused him to stop.
Sasuke stepped out of the rubble with dark grey skin, a black four-point star-mark between his eyes and across the bridge of his nose, his sclera turn black, and his lips turn blue. He also had claw-like nails and his hair grew to waist-length. He also has two large webbed hand-shaped wings on his back.
Sauske smirked evilly and said "This power is incredible; it's time to die dobe."
Naruto scowled unhooked Mjolnir and said "This just got a lot more troublesome."
