Naruto paused in her hurried trek up the stairs leading back to their booth, pausing to look back at the pineapple-haired boy trudging along behind her at a more sedate pace. Come on, hurry up, Lazy Bones! she exclaimed. Were gonna miss the fight!
Shikamaru regarded her with a grimace. Youre starting to sound like Ino he grumbled. I take it you want Uchiha to win?
She blinked at him. Of course.
Surprisingly, Shikamaru found he felt a bit of disappointment. However, the feeling went away when Naruto spoke again. If anybodys gonna wipe that stupid smirk off the temes face, its gonna be me!
He smirked, relieved to know his friend hadnt turned into another one of those rabid fan girls. Not like it matters of course I spose we oughta be callin

"That stupid, stubborn, headstrong... Argh!"
Sasuke ignored the disjointed ramblings of the pink-haired kunoichi behind him, keeping his attention on the trees blurring past them. After that strange ninja had made off that little girl, the open pavilion had erupted into complete pandemonium. Given that there were numerous celebritities and wealthy dignitairies present among the invited, it was no surprise that there would be the fear of any one of them being next. Everyone had scattered in various directions, fearing for their safety. Fortunately, no other ninja arrived to take more hostages, giving the ninja from Konoha time to briefly regain their bearings.
Once they had been certain that Iwano-sama and her family members were safe and accounted for, Kakashi quickly ordered the two genin off after their wayward teammate.
"I can't believe she would just go off on her... Grr... when I get my hands on her..."

Leaning casually against the worn counter surface in front of her, Tenten's keen eyes focused in on her target in the distance. Raising her hand slowly and surely, she carefully took aim and with a quick flick of her wrist let her projectile fly. Cutting through the air quickly and silently, it thudded softly into a dart on the other side of the room, joining its predecessors in forming a perfectly neat circle around the center bull'-eye.
Though pleased with her success, the Weapons mistress of Team Gai let out a heavy sigh. Off days were so boring! Tenten enjoyed a day off just as much as the next person, but when they were spent minding her uncle's weapons' supply shop the young kunoichi was almost certain she would rather spend her time engaged in one of Gai-sensei's bizarre and unusual training exercises!
At the thought of her Jounin instructor, Tenten's mind immediately went to that of her injured teammate. 'Lee...'

A young servant entered into the room quietly, presenting a folded letter to the figure seated at a low, but elaborately ornate desk. The figure, an older man dressed in expensive robes, accepted the note, adjusting the small spectacles sitting on the bridge of his nose in order to read its contents more thoroughly. After a few moments, he set the note down with a frown.
"This is unacceptable," he snarled. "I'm not paying those fools to dillydally - I expect results!"
"Your orders, sir?" the servant murmured softly.
"Send word to the so called Joukuu-Koudo-Umi," he sneered. "Let them know that if they cannot handle this mission, I will find someone who can!"
"It will be done, Bouma-sama,"
Unlike most nukenin, Satoru did not become a missing nin in order to bring about change. He had no designs to become a kage, or assassinate the Daimyo, he'd really desire for revenge of any kind whatsoever. Nor had he been

As a ninja under the Snake Sannins employ, Kabuto learned very quickly that there were times to act and times to make yourself as unnoticeable as humanly possible. Staring at his masters back as it shook harshly with pain and strain, despite being heavily trained in the medical arts, the young ninja knew that it was in his best interest to pretend as if he wasnt there.
Pushing his body forward along the wooded trail by what seemed like mere willpower alone, Orochimaru bit down harshly on his lip to keep his anguish and frustration bottled down within him. However, after a few agonizing steps the attempt proved to be a wasted effort as he opened his mouth and left forth a pain-filled scream of outrage.
Behind him, Kabuto came to a stop, remaining quiet even as a tree that had been blocking their path fell to the ground with a loud, resounding thud.
Breathing heavily, Orochimaru bit back a curse, stepping over the felled oak as if noth

Touga had been a fool. Traditionalist, idealist, weak; his position as a feudal lord had awarded him so much potential, so many possibilities... and yet the man had all but squandered them. Somewhere he'd come across the notion that a feudal lord's duty was to serve the people.
'Pah, what drivel!' Setting his sake down upon the table, Bouma grimaced in distaste as he recalled memories of the man he had served under for over 15 years. It was almost a shame really. The previous Lord Hiyami had been a little idealistic as well, but he'd been a doddering old fool, far more concerned with puttering around his estate, leaving its maintenance to his advisors. It had been assumed that once he'd died, things would continue to run as usual, but no...
Touga had to be different. Pandering around with the commoners had given the boy foolish notions that nobility should have no concern for.
