Moterock's Den of Devastation
CHP 2: General's revealed
Marching down the street with crossed arms, numerous people waved at Naruto. So deep in his own train of thought he didn't even realize it. Starting to feel his lost energy from the disappointment return to him from earlier a smile grew over his face. Naruto changed his body posture running down the street trying to avoid running into people. Some of the villagers became curious as to where he was headed to in such a rush. Looking to his left Naruto waved to Ino who passed by a flower shop but didn't see the guy in front of him. Bumping into the elder, the basket of green apples he carried fell to the ground. Villagers of the surrounding area glared at the spiky haired ninja, who nervously laughed. Quickly helping the elder recover and place the apples back into the basket Naruto apologized and quickly ran off, not hearing Ino calling out to him. She watched him progress down the road and eventually out of sight.
Naruto arrived back on the training grounds where he had previously been. Stretching out he got back to work on what he had been doing before, but realized he could use the aid of two particular individuals. Biting at his thumb and drawing blood he used his summoning jutsu. With the clearing of the smoke two frogs stood in place looking directly at him.
"Hey Naruto how's it going, do you have any good snacks on yah?"
Getting ready to answer the question, Naruto noticed the frog became distracted by a group of flies buzzing around in the area. Instead of trying to get his attention Naruto watched and waited. The frog stuck out his tongue devouring the flies in one gulp.
"My my, that sure was delicious."
The other frog wearing a dark blue grayish sweater knocked his younger brother over the shoulder.
"Stop getting off task Gamatatsu, Naruto called us here for a reason," The orange frog then turned to the Leaf village ninja, "What can we help you with?"
Changing his posture Naruto liked the straight to the point attitude of Gamakichi. Clearing his throat Naruto explained to the two of them that he had been thinking for awhile about creating a few sets of combos that the three of them could use in battle. Gamakichi scratched at the side of his head informing they'd have to postpone that for a later time. Arguing back Naruto wanted to know why.
"We're due to take part in some meeting back on Mount Myoboku in the next couple minutes. When you summoned us here we figured it might be something that we could help you with quickly and return home."
"Come on guys forget the stupid meeting, you can ask one of your pals later for the important stuff! I really want to string together a couple team combos!"
Gamatatsu and his older brother looked at one another and then back at Naruto.
"Sorry Naruto but father said we had no choice but to be there. We'll certainly help you out later if you're still interested. Until than see yah later" Gamakichi said.
The two disappeared in a cloud of dust not hearing a word Naruto yelled out attempting to keep them from leaving. Resting a hand up over the leaf village symbol over his headband Naruto sat back over the grass. Upon waking earlier in the morning things have not gone his way, but he fully intended on changing that. Thinking to himself he wondered what he could do first to start turning things around. He badly wanted to be on a mission, and sitting around without anything to do was crazy.
"I thought I heard voices over here."
Looking over his shoulder Naruto saw that one of the women who freaked him out most in the village approached. Listening to her call out his name, he pretended not to hear her closing his eyes. Feeling that she pulled at his air, he opened his eyes jumping up.
"What do you think you're doing snake lady, what was that all about huh?!" Naruto complained pointing directly at her with his right index finger.
"No need to go on the attack I was just passing by and thought I'd say hello. I've got a mission to take care of anyway so I won't be wasting any more of my time on you."
Watching her walk off Naruto couldn't stop himself from running after her and grabbing hold of her right arm.
"What kind of mission are we talking, can I come along? Well I guess it does depend on what type of mission it is, but hey anything is better than doing nothing." Naruto said backing away from her.
Turning around and facing him, Anko rested her left hand over her waist. Reminding him that he wasn't assigned to the mission and added he should stay put until something else came up. She again walked away, but could feel that he was following her from behind. Stopping and turning to face him she put on a forged smile telling him to get lost.
"Come on don't be that way," Naruto watched as she walked off paying him no attention, "Fine be that way…I hope your mission fails."
Hearing his words she turned around giving Naruto a death glare.
"Haha I was totally kidding, have a safe journey and make it back ok. When you get back you can tell me all about it." Naruto said trying his best to make peace hoping she wouldn't do something to him.
Immediately looking away from him she journeyed into the forest area bordering the village. Naruto sighed with relief thankful that nothing else became of that.
Sneaking around close to one another a group dressed in the same attire as the intruders of the Leaf snuck around inside the Hidden Mist. One of the groups worked their way onto the rooftops. Using a set of binoculars one of them looked through a window to the building where the Mizukage supposedly lived. After confirming the target the person made contact with one of the spokespeople to their master.
"I've got Mei Terumi in my sight. What would you like us to do from this point on Miss Mila?"
"You will do nothing but observe. There are separate groups that will be used to impetrate the village from within. Just as the other ninja villages, we will destroy them from within."
Jumping off from tree to tree Anko stayed extremely wary of her surroundings. She was told by some of the security people that suspicious activity was taking place in several locations on the outside borders of the leaf. Five minutes into her travels someone blind sides Anko from one of the trees tackling her all the way down onto the ground for a twenty foot fall. Struggling with all of her strength Anko kicks the person off her asking for them to identify themselves.
"You won't be asking the questions leaf scum, you're outnumbered."
Looking in all directions more of them made themselves visible from the surrounding trees and bushes. Standing her ground she counted those of them who were in her line of sight. She put up her fists ready to fight but was knocked in the back of the head by one of them she didn't account for. Falling to the ground she clinched her fists grabbing and pulling at some of the grass beneath her fingers. Attempting to get up she was kicked in the stomach and had her faced shoved into the ground by one of them who took a knee. Another of them grabbed hold of her hands tying them together. This was their way of making sure she couldn't perform any jutsus. Pulling her up two of them set Anko on her knees.
"I take it you people are the ones related to the suspicious reports that have been coming in. What is it you want?" She asked.
Slapping her across the face the one standing in front of her demanded that she keep her mouth closed until she was asked a question. Several of them moved out of the way creating a path for who she believed to be the leader of the group.
"If you cooperate with us, things will go a hell lot smoother and I'll even consider letting you live. A new era approaches for this entire world…soon our all mighty leader will rise to power! All of the great nations will have no choice but to fall in line or be destroyed. His power will grow with the fear and destruction of the many souls of this wretched land."
"Who is this leader of yours dammit," Anko struggles to get up but was shoved back into place. Paying extra attention to their uniform she realized this was a group she had never seen before, "That's a pretty big claim you're making there, I think you're bluffing. You won't get anything out of me; you people are nothing but spies trying to get information through fear but I won't say a word."
Sticking her tongue out as a form of taunting she's kicked in the face for her insolence. Falling face first into the turf she is instantly pulled back up into her previous position. The one in charge started to become a bit impatient with her bending down and grabbing her by the neck. Squeezing at her throat made him feel his power over her increase. He believed physical punishment was the best way to get someone to talk. Forming a slight smirk Anko opened her mouth spitting over the face of his armored mask.
"*****!" He shouted slapping her across the face.
Standing fully he took a few steps back looking down on her.
"Last chance; are you ready to start talking?"
"Go screw yourself." She replied smiling.
