Moterock's Den of Devastation
CHP 1: Spies among Leaf
Ascending over the engraved faces with on the mountain tops of the great passed leaders known to the grand village, was the sun generating light in essence a new day. The village had its portion of peaceful as well as hard times. Recently things had been going well for the Hokage and the village as a whole. The fifth Hokage A.K.A Tsunade was in high spirits. Gazing down over the Leaf from her balcony she thought about numerous past events; most of which of her training in the early days with Hiruzen. From that point she never imagined things would turn out the way they did with her becoming Hokage so many years later. Whenever times were like they are now is when neighboring nations got along best. Enjoying the view for a little while longer she entered into her office through an unlocked door.
Inside a home down below a young girl awoke sitting up in bed. Resting her hands over the tops of the sheets she yawned. Giving herself a few seconds to fully awaken she got out of bed stretching. Catching a glimpse of herself through a mirror in a corner of the room, she ran a finger through her pink shoulder length hair. Stepping out of her clothing she entered into the bathroom taking a quick shower. She got dressed into her pink/red combination ninja attire tying her Leaf village headband over the top of her hair exiting out of the room.
Walking down the road she waved at some of the villagers who did the same back. Exchanging a few helloes she continued on her way. It was yesterday that she had been informed she'd be heading out on a C rank mission along with two of her teammates. After meeting up with the two they'd speak with and get the details of the mission from the Hokage. Jogging down the street she ran up a set of stairs slowing as she stopped in front of a door.
"Naruto open up!" She called out.
Knocking a few times over she waited to see if her friend/teammate would answer. After minutes of remaining patient, she reached out grabbing hold of and turning the doorknob. Slightly surprised to see that it was unlocked she slowly entered calling out his name. Tip toeing onward she hoped he'd be dressed. Noticing that his kitchen area was close to spotless shocked her a little. Coming up to his already made bed she rested a hand over her waist. She had no choice but to look elsewhere for her spiky haired teammate, sighing as a result.
Once back on the road she thought hard about where he ran off to but came up with nothing. The thought he went to the Hokage first without meeting with the rest of the team is something she highly doubted. Holding her head down below her shoulders with clinched fists, it was times like now that she didn't mind strangling him until he passed out. It was made clear in advance to the team when they'd be meeting with lady Tsunade.
"How's it going for you this morning Sakura-neechan? You wouldn't by any chance know where I can find Naruto would you?"
Looking off to her left Konohamaru walked up next to Sakura.
"Hate to say it but I'm looking for him as well, he and I are supposed to be in lady Tsunade's office no more than thirty minutes. Naruto has a nag for running off at the most inopportune times. Anyhow what do you need him for?"
"Ah it's nothing really…just something to do with a jutsu I've been working on."
Crossing her arms she glared down at him.
"Mind sharing the details of the jutsu?" she asked.
With a guilty smirk he ran off telling her he had somewhere to be in the next ten minutes. She kept a close look on him as he disappeared into one of the alleyways up ahead. Not thinking much of it she got back on track to locating either of her two assigned squad members. A couple of others in the area greeted her before she took off up the street. When making a right she bumped into her team member that wasn't Naruto.
"Sai I'm glad I ran into you…where is Naruto? Or what I should ask is if you've seen him." She asked.
Sai smiled having no clue where Naruto was. This agitated Sakura even more, and Sai's grin didn't help at all. Grabbing hold of his left arm she pulled him forward alongside her and demanded that he wipe the stupid smirk off his face before she did it for him. He pulled his arm away from her suggesting they split up, telling they'd cover more ground.
"Sounds good to me, but we should at least check and see if he isn't already waiting for us in Tsunade's office."
Agreeing she first wanted to check with the Hokage. Now that Sakura found Sai she didn't want to lose him to. He followed her to the main building in the center of the village. Traveling up various steps they walked down the hall. Sakura knocked at the door while Sai stood behind her. Opening the door Shizune invited them inside informing that Tsunade had been expecting them. Both greeted the Hokage and realized Naruto was nowhere to be seen. Sakura looked passed that informing that she and Sai were ready to hear the details of the mission.
"Where's Naruto?" Tsunade asked.
Clinching her fists holding them close to her sides Sakura told the truth that neither she nor Sai knew of his whereabouts.
"I see," Tsunade paused for several seconds which made Sakura gulp, "If you can't find him in the next fifteen minutes I'll be assigning a replacement member to your team for this mission. In the meantime I'll enlighten you both with the info of this mission. Your replacement member will be waiting at the main gate if you don't find Naruto in time."
The two shook their heads confirming they understood. Standing off to the side Shizune walked over opening one of the windows to the room letting in some air while Sai and Sakura paid close attention to the instructions the Hokage gives them. Following the briefing Sai and Sakura bowed down exiting the room. Neither had much to say but knew the first thing they needed to do was find Naruto. Sai suggests using his beast scroll to locate Naruto, but Sakura decided against it. Placing a hand over his shoulder she let him know using that would take away unnecessary chakra.
Splitting up they began their search for Naruto. Coming across several of the villagers Sai asked if any of them had seen the boy who dressed in orange. All of who he came across hadn't seen him yet this morning. Continuing on he searched in several other locations. In the passing of those fifteen minutes neither he nor Sakura were able to find him. Regrouping at the main gates the replacement to him waited.
"Captain Yamato what a surprise. I had no idea you'd be the one assigned in his place." Sakura said.
"I'd agree with her, this mission hardly calls for someone of your status. Sakura and I can handle this alone…but you're more than welcomed to join us." Sai told.
He was more than confident they could get the job done on their own, but decides it best to travel alongside them. They briefly go over the information of the mission one last time. Following that they discussed the formations they'd use in case they found themselves in a battle. Settling all of that they headed out on their way.
Over at the east end of the village inside the forest area approached a group of armed individuals. They carried with them swords, all sorts of daggers and paper bombs. In total there were seven of them and for the most part had different strengths. Three used taijutsu, while two used Genjutsu and the remainder specialized in weaponry. Closing in on the Leaf, they're stopped in their tracks by two Leaf Shinobi ninjas. The group is asked to identify themselves. One of them stepped forward in front of the rest.
"We're here from the hidden mist. We've got something important for the Hokage to look over," He handed the two Leaf shinobis each a map, "Just take a look at the marked areas."
Both shinobi lifted up the maps in search of the points the individual spoke of being killed immediately by the unknown person! Knowing they'd have their eyes off him he used two separate knives stabbing through the maps and into their necks cutting them open. One of the ninja behind him used an earth style jutsu to quickly get rid of their bodies.
"Let's move along now, I feel we're closing in on the great one." The leader of the group spoke.
They made sure to stay concealed using the surrounding trees as best they could. The leader of them could feel they drew closer to the one they had been ordered to locate. The amount of chakra he possessed was unmistakable. They watched a group of children pass by and stopped. The team waited for the young ones to be out of sight. Re routing they traveled throughout the small forest area bordering the Leaf village. Again the leader stopped the group grinning widely beneath his mask.
In deep concentration a boy sat over the top of a large rock with his eyes closed and legs crossed. There was an immense chakra flow in and outside of his body. All kept their attention on the boy wondering what he was doing. Moments later his eyes of bright blue sprung open. Jumping up from his position he stood on top of the rock looking out in the distance while the wind blew his hair as well as the back of his ninja headband back and forth. With much confidence over his face the ninja cracked his knuckles leaping high into the air performing a front flip and landing perfectly.
"Is this him? I feel a lot of chokra coming from that guy, but how could someone of such youth contain that amount of Chakra?!"
"Yes that's him alright…Naruto Uzumaki! I shall contact our leader and see what he wants us to do from here."

Using a small earpiece the main ninja in charge contacted the head guy giving him a small report of what they'd done so far. Asking if the team should try and apprehend the boy, the speaker on the other side told them not to do such a thing. All he wanted for them to accomplish was to observe and calculate what goes on in the Leaf. They weren't the only group with such a mission, he sent similar groups to the hidden rain, sand, mist, sound, land of waves and several others! None of the groups are aware of what his ending plan will be. For now they take orders and relay as much info to him as they can.
"You're not to engage Uzumaki…I will deal with him and others of his status at a later time."
Hearing a clicking sound, the leader of the group turned back to the rest of his team sharing with them what he had just been told. Putting away some of their weapons, all of them understood what was asked of them. "Multi shadow clone jutsu!" All of them turned their attention to the boy who spoke aloud out on the field. When the smoke cleared there were over thirty copies of the boy surrounding him. The clones partnered up in groups of three. One clone in each group stood while the two others helped form a ball of energy in both hands.
"What's going on? What exactly is he doing?"
"It's called the Rasengan, it is a jutsu that was created by the legendary fourth Hokage. The boss man has his reasons for doing things a certain way, but I don't see why we can't get our hands dirty. I'd like to test my skills on this kid." The leader of the group said.
All of them remained in place watching Naruto train. He did some things that impressed them, but at the same time the entire group felt it would be an easy victory for them if they engaged him in combat. Aside from the mission the thing that had them a bit spooked was the reality none of them had ever met the one they take orders from. Even worse they haven't a clue of his name either. All of the missions have been assigned through his two spokespeople. So far no one has questioned this unknown being and the three who did were unheard from again. Executing one move after another, Naruto finally grew a bit tired, deciding to lie out over the grass. Glaring up at the sky Naruto sighed feeling relaxed. A butterfly landed on his nose reminding him of something.
"Oh that's right! I'm supposed to be going on a mission!" He shouted flipping up.
He sprinted in the direction of the village knowing he had to get to Tsunade ASAP. Some tried to call out to him as he passed by in the village, but he had no choice but to ignore them. Entering into the main building he ran up dashing into the office of Tsunade.
"Sorry I'm late grandma Tsunade…but I'm ready to get going! Sakura told me we'd be heading out on a C-rank so tell me the details, don't leave me hanging," He could see that her face showed signs of disappointment, but he had no idea why, "What's wrong."
Stepping forward Shizune answered for the Hokage.
"Sai and Sakura were dispatched without you. A replacement was sent in your place due to you not being present." Shizune said as cheerfully as she could.
Looking at them both Naruto tightened his fists demanding to know which direction the group went.
"Come on I'll be able to catch up to them in no time, I don't want to sit around and do nothing. All I've done for the past few days is train! I want to get in some action!" Naruto complained.
"Don't you raise your voice at me I'm the Hokage," Tsunade stood slamming her fists over the tabletop. Taking a few deep breaths she looked him in the eyes, "If anything else comes up I'll let you know."
Turning away from her Naruto headed for the exit.
"Whatever you say granny."
Exiting out Naruto rested both hands over the back of his head with nothing but dissatisfaction. Once outside he bumped into a familiar face. Usually he'd say hi but he continued to walk without a word. He was grabbed from behind.
"Hey you don't look so good, do you want to tell me what's going on; how about over a bowl of noodles at Ichiraku?"
"Not now Shikamaru. I really need to get back to my training." Naruto said with a lot less energy than usual.
Scratching at the back of his head, Shikamaru wondered what was bothering his best pal. Watching him walk off, he could tell by his body posture that something upsets him. Deeming it best to not bother him Shikamaru turned walking in the other direction. Outside the border of the Leaf two more ninja groups approach from different directions; both associated with the first. Talking amongst themselves the group had no idea who was pulling the strings/in charge of this group. All they knew was his/and or her vision. If they were successful in completing their part, it' would bring them one step closer to conquering the ninja world.
"We're getting closer by the second. All of you remember not to encounter any of their top shinobi, especially not the copy ninja Kakashi Hatake."

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.
Turning and walking away in the opposite direction he gave his men the order to beat on her for a little while hoping that would soften her up a bit. Two of them held her steady while another of them began beating on her. This went on for a couple minutes. Hanging in strong she took the blows not allowing herself to fall or give in to the pain. Reaching out he grabbed hold of her head kneeing her in the face drawing blood from her nose. With another blow to the head she fell to the ground seeing stars.
"What are you doing sweet stuff; we can't have you falling asleep before you start talking. Come now it'll make ours and your life so much easier if you just talk. You can start by giving us all of the security codes to your village. So what do yah say, are you ready to start talking?"
Turning her head and looking up at him, she felt somewhat weak.
"Go to hell!" She whispered.
Having one of them pick her up the same individual continued punching at her face. Off to the side the leader of the group received a call through his ear piece. Others standing around could tell that it was important by the way their squad leader spoke. He immediately called a stop to the beating of Anko during his conversation with one of their superiors. All of them stood around waiting for him to finish speaking.
"Change of plans gentlemen, we're heading back to base. Mila wants us to retreat ASAP and said everything will be explained to us when we get there. It must be something big; from my understanding she's calling back all units including those in the other villages."
"What about the woman? Should we kill her or take her with us?"
The leader implied they'd do neither, explaining that she knew nothing about them and wouldn't be able to return to the Hokage with any relevant information regarding them. The ones standing behind Anko released her letting her fall to the turf. Walking over to her side the one in charge bent down.
"It's your lucky day little lady you get to live. Aside from that I'd like for you to pass on a message to the Hokage," Reaching down he grabbed hold of her chin with a gloved hand forcing her to look up at him, "Tell her that the destruction of the ninja world as you all know it draws near. Those who're adaptable will survive while the rest will die!"
Removing his hand from under her chin he stood walking over to the rest of the group. All of them formed a circle around him. Anko looked up watching him punch in a code on a high tech looking armband over his left arm. Following that a bright green light formed around the group and they vanished without a trace. Anko wondered if it was some form of Jutsu but at the same time had her doubts.
Re appearing inside the fortress, the team leader followed by his squad bow down to Mila Lihua, who stood next to another person who went by the name of Kian Hwaungel. The two of them together were the spokespeople to the unknown leader none of them had ever set eyes on. Only Kian and Mila have had the pleasure of coming face to face with this being. All groups were present except for the six squads that were dispatched to the hidden sand. Soon word came back they located the Kazekage Gaara, but were asked to return immediately. All of them waited patiently for the squads to return. Once they did Mila took over the floor. She stood at a little over 5'6" with long raven colored hair around her lower back and light brown eyes.
"I'm glad you all made it back in one piece, and from the reports all of you were successful in locating the five Kage. The reason you have all been called back is for a different reason however," Mila looked over at Kain taking the scroll from out of his hands, "Our master has updated information for you all."
Standing inside the large space was over two thousand of them, but they planned to increase that number by a lot.
"I've brought you back to inform our master selected generals to lead his upcoming war. Unfortunately none of them are in this room presently. All of you will be divided evenly among these groups, and we plan to add more of you in the near future."
Before going any further she asked if any of them had any questions. The room remained silent which told her to continue.
"Alright than I guess I'll get right into it, so not to waste anymore time. I'll start off with the four that are currently deceased…but they won't be for long."
Everyone in the room began whispering to each other wondering what that could mean. All of them were positive once someone died they couldn't be brought back.
"The first four are ***a, Fudo, Fuen and Oroku Saki. The first three were natives to this world, but Saki is from an entirely different dimension. Next is, Deathstroke, Poison Ivy, Sasuke Uchiha, Circe, Killer Frost, Clayface and last but certainly not least… Madara Uchiha!"
If it wasn't silent before, it was now with the mention of Madara's name. Most of them had no idea who most of those people were that she listed off.
"I can see that some of you are confused, I'll clear it up for you a bit. Besides the first three deceased members I mentioned you should only be familiar with Sasuke and Madara Uchiha. The others aren't from this dimension quite frankly."
One of them in the crowed spoke asking why they were resulting to such drastic efforts of collecting/gathering help outside of this world. Many of them agreed saying that it could end up complicating things.
"Don't you people worry about a thing, just let our master do the thinking. This is something he has thought out for a long time, and has looked at it from every possible angle. His reasoning should not be questioned, plus I'm sure we'll all be impressed by what these unknowns will bring to the table."
Dismissing all of them ending the meeting, Kain grabbed hold of Mila asking to speak with her somewhere private. Following him into one of the back rooms they closed the door. She could tell just by looking at his face that something was bothering him.
"I don't have any complaints but…Sasuke Uchiha is the biggest question mark. I'm not sure he will join us. I've even heard rumors that he resurrected that Orochimaru person! Not just that but the choice of Madara bugs me as well, he seems to have his own agenda!"
Coming in closer to him, Mila placed both her hands over his shoulders.
"Stop worrying so much, it might take a little convincing here and there to get some of our general's comfortable, but it'll all work out in the end."
"Yeah I guess you're right. If it all pans out like it should, there isn't a single person in this world who will be able to stop us. Even the great Minato Namikaze's son of the leaf carrying the nine tailed beast will pose no threat. Until we've got everything in place we can't move forward, and once the war begins the fear of the people will give our master power unlike anything the ninja world has ever seen!"

Moterock's Den of Devastation
CHP 3: Enlisting
Inside the back room Mila deliberated with Kian on which squads they would put together to handle and take care of the important task. Going over the list of their most skilled and disciplined recruits they put together six teams of five to locate their targets and to bring them back to base. By orders of their master they had no choice but to go about doing things that way. Leaving the side of Mila, Kian informed that he'd gather the ones they decided on. She took a seat in one of the chairs waiting for him to return. Her eyes caught sight of the burning flames of a candle positioned over one of the walls. Outside the room Kian made the announcement to the large group calling out the names of the individuals he and Mila made in charge for the task.
Traveling up the stairs the selected ones followed him to Mila. Entering into the room they were divided into six groups. The most skilled of them were appointed captains for the task. Team 1 and 4 were given the task to track down Madara and Sasuke, with team 2 in charge of Deathstroke, and team 3 Killer Frost. Team 5 was given a little bit extra to track down both Clayface and Poison Ivy. Team 6 was given arguably the most powerful individual to recruit…that being Circe.
Each group was given a biography of the person(s) they'd be going after. Vital info concerning their targets personality types and how to approach them was given. Giving them plenty of time to go over the information, neither Kian nor Mila wanted to send them on a mission without supplying them with enough sufficient information. Getting several questions from the group, Mila and Kian answered as best they could.
"What about Oroku Saki, ***a, Fudo and Fuen? If the four of them are dead like you two say, how will they be able to join our league? Also which of our teams will be responsible for that?"
"That is something that you need not worry about, Mila and I will handle that personally. Just focus on the task you have been given," Kian looked away from the one who asked the question and at the group as a whole, "I do have to warn to you all that this task will be a lot harder than it may seem. Some of them won't join willingly and will need a little convincing. We've added in a brief description at the bottom of each profile of effective ways to lure each of them in. Do whatever it takes to get them back here, our master doesn't tolerate failure."
Understanding what was asked, the group promised they'd get their assigned jobs done. Some were nervous while others were eager to get going burning for the opportunity to get their feet wet. Going over a few more details each group was given a small teleport device which would enable them to return to this facility once they located their targets. Each single team member is given a separate radar tracker with their assigned target's energy signature. Team 1 and 4 were told to stay put while the rest of the teams were escorted out by Kian into another room.
"What is this place?" One of them asked looking at the advanced looking equipment surrounding the area.
Catching the expressions on their faces from the corner of his eye, Kian smiled. Quickly giving them some insight he got straight to the point. All of what they were seeing around them was a part of the machinery that would be responsible for sending them to another dimension where they'd face their job of tracking down their assigned targets. Typing in a code on one of the computers located off to the side, Kian told Team 2 to step onto the platform in the far middle of the room. Doing as he asked the squad got into their places. Before doing anything else he made sure to give all of them in the room the return frequency they would have to punch in to their device when it came time to return.
"Good luck gentlemen, I'll try and send you as close to your target as I can but it'll be hard pin pointing the exact spot."
With a few more clicks the group was sent off in a blinding flash of light. Following that the next group stepped onto the platform, being sent away to their destination. Soon all teams were dispersed off to their set locations. Locking the door on his way out Kian relocated to where he had left Mila with teams one and four. Surprisingly she was the only one who remained.
"So I see you've already sent them off that's great. The sooner we get our leader's chosen captains here the real fun can begin. So would you like to take care of resurrecting Saki?"
"I'll leave that to you, dimension jumping has never really been one of my things. I'll take care of Fudo and his two acquaintances." She replied.
Informing he had no problem with that he let her know he was heading out immediately. She however wanted to wait until everyone else was gathered before she would take care of her part. Waving at her he returned to the previous room he had been in readying himself for the faraway trip.
Loose grass and fallen leafs blew away in the air due to the rough wind surrounding the area. With his departure from the open field Naruto walked alongside a road with his hands up behind his head. At the particular moment he knew he needed to find something to do before he died of boredom. Whistling to himself he got lost in his own train of thought. He so badly wanted to be on a mission and hated that he was denied the opportunity even though he was late assembling with his team.
Removing his hands from the back of his head he looked forward. Seated underneath a tree with long lavender hair was someone who caught his attention. Jogging in that direction he had a good idea of who it was.
"Hey Hinata what are you doing over here alone." He called out hoping it was in fact her.
"Oh hi Naruto," Hinata spoke timidly. She didn't know what it was but for some reason she almost always became nervous around him. Questioning if her love for him was the cause made her blush, "I thought you were on a mission?"
Smiling widely with his eyes closed and hands behind his back he laughed a little. When around her he felt comfortable and could speak his mind. For him opening up to just about anyone was easy. Deciding to share what happened he started from the beginning giving a shorter version of what lead to him being withdrawn from the mission. She was all ears listening to every single detail of what he had to say. Removing his hands from behind his head he noticed she held a book in her left hand.
"What's that you're reading?" Naruto asked pointing at the book.
"Oh it's nothing really." She quickly replied.
Observing a grin form on his face, she didn't know if that was good or bad. Bending down Naruto reached out trying to grab hold of the book but she pulled her arm away not allowing for him to do so. "Come on Hinata, let me see…pretty please!" Naruto struggled to grab hold of it, having a grin on his face the entire time. Dodging his attempts she tried to stand but instead lost her balance falling backwards with him falling on top of her. They looked into each other's eyes having nothing to say. She quietly whispered his name feeling a shock of electricity go up her back. Similar to her he felt the rate of his heart increase dramatically, feeling butterflies all over.
"What the heck do the two of you think you're doing?!"
Without even looking Naruto knew who spoke and immediately pushed off her and turning to face Shino. Standing beside him was Kiba who couldn't help but smile. Naruto gulped feeling the intensity strengthen, wishing that he were in someone else shoes.
"Guys that was totally not what it looked like, it was an accident! I just wanted to see what she was reading is all!" Naruto said trying to dismiss the whole situation.
"Yeah I bet huh. It's strange how someone can end up on top of another person over something as simple as a book. Here I was thinking Sakura was the one who interested you, but I must say you and Hinata make a cute couple." Kiba said laughing trying to get under Naruto's skin.
Tightening his fists with narrowed eyes Naruto stood punching Kiba over the shoulder again trying to defend himself. Of all his friends Kiba was good at aggravating him whenever he really wanted.
"You idiot I told you nothing was going on, it was a mistake! Ask her if you don't believe ME!" Naruto raised his voice getting into his face.
She blushed feeling embarrassed, except not by what happened but more so because Shino and Kiba passed by. None of them noticed Ino standing a few yards away. Becoming annoyed with Kiba's laughing Naruto turned away from them making up a story that he had somewhere to be. Running off as quickly as possible he looked over his shoulder giving Hinata a quick smile which made her feel even warmer inside. Recovering the book off to the side of her she closed it standing. As expected her two teammates questioned her about what happened and she gave a similar answer to that of Naruto. Taking her word for it they asked if she'd like to accompany them on relocating a few supplies. Agreeing to help she followed close behind. Without it being said she suspected they were skeptical of what she and Naruto told them.
"So you're sure nothing happened then? The expressions on both your faces suggested otherwise?" Kiba asked looking back at her.
Resting a hand over his shoulder Shino told him to give it a break. Deep within the forest one of the most respected Jonin's was on his way back from a small mission. Leaping from tree to tree he noticed something disturbing down below and stopped in his tracks. Before making another move he identified who the injured individual was before fully moving in. A strike of fear ran up his back knowing he had to do something fast!
"Anko can you hear me?! Are you ok, what happened?" He called out bending down and coming up next to her.

Extending his left arm he placed his hand over her neck hoping for the best. There was one thing he hoped wasn't the outcome. Using what strength she had, she looked up at him.
"Kak Kaka…Kakashi," She struggled to say attempting to get up but fell forward with limited energy, "I don't know who they were, but th…th the ll…Leaf might be in danger. We mm…must warn the Hokage."
Advising her not to say another word he grabbed hold of her arm lifting it up around his shoulder and helping her up. Holding her up in his arms he leaped back into the tree tops making his way back to the Leaf village. Taking a quick look at her he knew her injuries weren't too serious. Once they returned to the village he felt he needed to find her somewhere to rest before she started talking. Notifying the Hokage would be his next priority.
Examining their surroundings the group as a whole was astonished by the sizes of the buildings compared to those back in the ninja world. It rained heavily over the top of them, but they weren't bothered by that at all. They didn't know how to explain the various moving objects which had lights shining in front of and on the back of them. Quickly realizing that humans sat inside of these strange objects they considered they were the ones controlling its movements. None of them before had seen any form of vehicle such as a truck car etc. This was something new to them all, but they stayed focused and on the task.
Pulling out the small radar devices given to them they saw that one of their targets wasn't very far away. Leading the way the squad member made it clear to the rest of them that they'd have to stick to the shadows. Aside from acquiring their targets he wanted to avoid any confrontation with the people of this world. Huddled up close to one another the atmosphere had a slightly different feel to it in comparison with their home world. Stepping into one of the alleyways three of them spotted something shinning bright in the sky. None of them could confirm what it was, but it greatly resembled a bat. It shinned bright, with one of them contemplating if it was some form of search light. Going over the information of their two targets once more they arrived in front of a gated off premises. By looking at the radar they knew their target was inside this place.
"Arkham Asylum," One of them read from the sign over the gate, "Looks like we might be getting in a little action after all. The name of this place suggests are target is locked up as a patient and or inmate. One of you will go in alongside me while the rest of you wait here."
Using the device which brought them into the world, the captain of the squad used it again transporting him and another of them into the Asylum. Re appearing in the middle of a hall on both sides of them were yelling inmates through caged and glass window cells. The squad leader immediately identified their target without looking at the radar, thanks to the photos they had been given of each target. The design of her cell was much different than the others, which told them she was of high profile. The alarms in the building went off in the following seconds.
"We must have been discovered! Let's try and act quickly."
Ignoring the other inmates they stopped in front of the one holding their target knocking at the bulletproof glass window. Her appearance was much like in the photos, dressed in all green with a couple of vines wrapped around her arms and long red hair. She was even more beautiful in person than either of them imagined.
"Pamela Isley is it? Or do you prefer Poison Ivy? It doesn't really matter, what is important is you're coming with us."
Standing from a corner, Ivy moved toward the front of her cell. Down the hall on both sides of them security officers entered into the space pointing weapons at them. Being told by the officers to identify themselves, they ignored the guards. Annoyed by the distraction the captain used one of his earth style jutsu's creating a huge wall on both sides of them which had a length of five feet both ways. That left them one on one with Ivy.
"Once we get you out of that cage we've got a proposition for you."
Remaining silent for a few moments she glanced back and forth at the two. Never before had she seen either of them, and she found their dress style to be odd.
"What if I say no?" She spoke.
"Trust me my dare…you won't turn down our offer."

Moterock's Den of Devastation
CHP 4: Ravagers of the Den
Fleeing with the two she had no knowledge of or ever met Poison Ivy agreed to their terms and wanted to hear the proposition of their leader. Using a form of teleportation they re appeared outside. It was still raining, but that didn't bother them. Ivy looked around and saw that there were three more of them, dressed exactly as the two who freed her. Even from where they stood, the emergency alarms from inside the asylum could be heard clearly. Getting away from the area as fast they could, it was expected the security officials of Arkham would soon be doing a sweep of the premises in search for Ivy.
When asking a question about where they were headed, she was denied a reply. The only info given to her was that they still had one other to track down. Instead of asking who, she remained silent knowing they'd have to answer her questions at some point…though she was curious as to whom they were in search for. Now that she was free running off was an option, but she really wanted to at least know the story behind why they freed her. Progressing through the dark shadows of the alleyways all members in the group aside from Ivy held out their small radars. Almost all at once they located the next appointed target. From what they could see it was at least a good three miles from their position.
"Could you tell me what that thing in the sky is supposed to mean," One of them tapped at Poison Ivy's shoulder pointing up into the sky, "It's kind of freaking looking if you ask me."
"You're better off if we don't cross paths with him," Ivy glared at the bat signal that sparkled bright. She knows it wouldn't be long before the hero of Gotham became aware of her escape if not already, "Can you boys at least tell me who else you're in search for? Or is that top secret as well?"
None of them answered her question, but they did think about who or what she referred to as someone they didn't want to cross paths with. Informing the group he was going to teleport them the captain explained it'd help them cover a lot more ground. All in the group made sure they had a hold of each other. Following that the captain used his teleportation technique. Re appearing in front of an abandoned theater that had closed years ago, she became confused on who they would be looking for around this part of town.
"The four of you can wait here while the two of us go inside," The captain said referring to the same one who assisted him in freeing Poison Ivy, "We'll get this done as fast as we can. After that we'll return to Murky Mountain."
From what they were getting from their radars the one they were in search for was inside. Listening to the direct order the four stayed put watching the two enter inside. From her backside two of them whistled marveling the body of Ivy. She tightened her right fists frowning, but then eased up with a smirk. Their actions in her opinion were to be expected, any man who set eyes on her couldn't help but fall in love.
"What is this Murky Mountain your boss spoke of, it sounds like something out of a cartoon?" Ivy asked turning to the three.
"I'd rather not ruin it for you plant woman. You will see it for yourself once we get there, and at that point in time your questions will be answered."
She didn't like the answer given, but didn't mind waiting to see the place for herself. Deep down she didn't fully trust them, nor was she sure if teaming with them would be long term. That would be determined once she found out the story behind everything and why they chose her. Elsewhere Kian arrived on what was known as earth three. He had a few supplies with him, all items that would help with his mission. Closing his eyes for a few seconds Kian focused in locating the corpse of his target.
It was a good distance from where he stood but he was thankful to have the device he carried on him. Utilizing the small tool, he teleported to the site of where the body had been laid to rest. Reaching back and pulling a book out of the small sack he carried Kian flipped through a few pages. Setting the book down Kian began a chant from the opened page. At the same time he gathered up energy from his surroundings using a special technique. The thing he was most thankful for was that the area was relatively hidden and secure, which meant the chances of an interruption by a civilian would be little to none.
Closing in on the last few words he increased the flow of energy by ten and amplified his tone. Within the surrounding area above him shadowy clouds formed. Lighting stroke several times over a precise spot in the ground just a few feet from where he stood. Patiently standing in place he hoped his efforts would be a success. A grin formed on his face noticing there was movement out in front of him from the turf below. Subsequently the area lit up with massive amounts of energy, and Kian watched as someone rose from the ground in full nude. The energy soon vanished leaving only the resurrected being.
"Welcome back Oroku Saki. Let's get you something to wear and then I'll explain what's going on. As you already know you were dead, but have been brought back."
The one known too many as the Shredder had nothing to say. More than anything he was perplexed by the reality he was now back in the world of the living. Something else that needed answering was why he was revived and who was this person standing in front of him? There was so much he wanted to know but didn't know where to begin. Another detail that lingered in the back of his head was how long he was dead for? Thinking down those lines brought back the memories of the battle which lead to his death! It was the leader and most skilled of the four that ended his life. Anger arose within as he reflected on the past events which ultimately resulted in his demise. Pondering the final blow which led to his beheading caused him to clinch his fists with growing rage.
Smiling off to the side, Kian loved the hatred he felt reverberating from Oroku. He had no doubts this person would join alongside them in their quest to conquer the ninja world. He had just the thing to lure him in completely.
"If you agree to join by my side I can assure you that those four turtle enemies of yours will be disposed of. Getting rid of them will be child's play for our group. Our power is far beyond anything you could imagine!"
It seemed the research by their master really paid off. Kian wouldn't have known anything about the four turtles if it weren't for his leader. Straightaway Kian could see the desire and dedication in the eyes of Saki. He knew there was no way he'd pass on the offer now.
"How do you know of the turtles? Also…what is the name of you group?" Oroku Saki asked.
Though this person may be responsible for bringing him back, that didn't mean he wasn't skeptical. Trust was something that could be very hard to come by. He's had his share of attempted backstabbers in the past.
"That isn't important; all you need to know is that they're good as dead. That is of course if you agree to join us in our crusade. As for a name, we're called the Ravagers of the Den."
Shredder didn't know what he meant by us, but whoever this guy was he had a feeling he was telling the full truth. After all this guy resurrected him, that in itself says a lot and there was no telling what other abilities he might have up his sleeve. Taking a few steps forward he put his right hand out in front of him agreeing to join. Kian covered his eyes with the palm of his hand. Oroku Saki didn't understand the meaning of this action.
"How about we get you dressed before we continue any further," Kian removed the hand from his face, "Mila put together something I know you'll love."
"What about my clan of ninjas?" Oroku asked.
Shaking his head Kian broke the news that his hideout had been destroyed and taken down over a year ago. What became of the surviving members was a mystery. Kian asked if there was anything else he wanted to know, but he had nothing else on mind. With that he grabbed hold of Saki transporting them back to the ninja world in the click of a button. Disembarking on the platform which he used to travel to earth three, Kian was satisfied with how things turned out.
"You wait right here, I'll be back with your uniform," Kian stepped off the platform leaving Oroku Saki, "It is totally your style bud, I know you will like it."
Exiting out he ran down the hall to the planning room where he had left Mila. Surprisingly enough she wasn't alone. Squad three was also present along with their assigned target who sat over one of the tables with one of her legs crossed over the other.
"Killer Frost I take it? I must say you're even more gorgeous in person." Kian complimented but was grabbed from behind by Mila.
"Now isn't the time to flirt. Why are you back so soon?" Mila asked him directly.
Still with his eyes on frost he let Mila know he had come for the suit she had constructed, adding that the one she manufactured it for was waiting in the other room. Pointing to a far corner of the room she informed him it was being covered by a sheet on the table with four wheels beneath it. Working fast he grabbed hold of the table pushing it forward and out of the room. He really wanted to get acquainted with Killer Frost, but knew that would have to wait.
"I'm back," Kian pushed the table into the middle of the room removing the blanket off the suit, "Now is that not amazing or what?!"
Oroku Saki looked down at the armor and couldn't help but smile. It was almost exactly like his original armor, except in this model the silver was replaced with gold. This was certainly something different but he felt he could get use to it. Coming forward and giving it an even closer look his smile widened.
"As you've noticed the color scheme of silver has been changed to gold, but that's hardly what you should be thinking about. The most significant detail about this armor is the fact it'll allow you to control chakra, and in turn that means you'll be able to learn and perform jutsus."
He could tell by the look on Oroku Saki's face that he was completely clueless as to what Chakra and jutsus were. As of right now that was to be expected.
"I'll explain it to you at a later time. For now just get suited up and meet me out in the hall after you're done. Heck maybe I'll even give you a tour of the place if we have time, but we'll see about that. Mila seems to always get ****ed off when I don't do things by the book."
Without another word Kian closed the door on his way out. Even he didn't know the full extent of his leader's true power. The five Kage shouldn't be anything to worry about, but for some reason it has been on his mind. He's gone back and forth with several what if scenarios. The two Jinchuriki of the Hidden cloud and Leaf could prove troublesome as well. Taking his mind off it, he thought only about what they needed to get done here in their own organization. Several miles away from the hideout Naruto walked through the market struggling to think up something that could occupy his time.
"How lame…there's got to be something I can do around here," Watching a few guys walk passed him with a few logs of wood in their grasp Naruto stopped. He wondered where they were headed to with all of that, "Ghee I should at least be training, but with Gamatatsu and Gamakichi busy there really is no point."
Taking off in the other direction he began walking placing both hands in his pockets. Recently he had thought up a few creative formations that would involve the three of them but just like everything else it had to be put on hold. Without even realizing it he made his way to the massive front gates to the village. Just as he got ready to turn, he noticed that someone familiar approached from the trees above landing down in front of him.
"Kakashi Sensei! Boy am I glad to see y…" Naruto stopped in mid sentence noticing that he carried someone in his arms.
Recognizing that it was Anko, Naruto gulped. It wasn't long ago that he crossed paths with her when he was out on the training field. If memory served him correctly she said something about going out on a mission. His fists immediately clinched remembering back that he offered to go with her but she denied him.
"Wha…what happened to her?" Naruto asked.
"She was attacked, but I don't know by whom. Right now I need you to alert Lady Tsunade on what has happened. She isn't in critical condition but I'm going to take her to the infirmary anyway. Get going Naruto, I'll catch up with you as soon as I can and speak to the Hokage myself."
Nodding Naruto traveled at full speed heading in a separate direction to Kakashi. While in stride Kakashi's heart raced looking down at Anko who had her eyes closed. He assured her they'd figure out and get back at the ones who did this. The thing that worried him was if the attack wasn't random. If there is a secret group attacking the Leaf security would have to be heightened immediately.
