Offspring chp. 5-Hatake-RestingAkari waded through the snarled muggy water of the Mist's marsh lands annoyed and exhausted. She felt the wound at her side throbbing and tried to force herself into survival mode to ignore it. She had been trekking through the banks of the river to help mask her scent and cloaked what little chakra she'd had left. Her wound was packed with a mud and dirt mixture since she had no bandages to stop the bleeding. There was currently only two ROOT core members still able to follow her. Her face and chest plate were stained splattered with blood from one core member that she'd had to kill. The ROOT was not going to back down on this and she knew that if she stopped it was over. As she'd traveled long into the night, the moon hanging over head, she had started to piece together what she assumed was their mission. It made the most sense to assume that Danzo had given a carry out order about her identity before death. She assumed that as long as she'd stayed incognito she would be allowed to lMore Like This
Offspring Chapter 4-Hatake-Shouldn't ExistSasuke stood outside on the front porch to Akari's smoking. He'd only been outside for about ten minutes dropping his smoldering cigarette onto the wood below to snub it out with his foot when he heard water inside. The pipes to the old apartment were loud and made small pinging noises as the water heated through the metallic heating oven he'd found inside under the sink. He rubbed his shoe over the ashes on the ground and sighed putting his hand in his pockets. He didn't want to walk in there and scare her but he figured she was smart enough to know that she didn't wipe her own sweaty forehead for the last three hours. He opened the door and slid inside before starting for the hallway. Neeko darted in front of him and hoped up on a shelf near the kitchen glaring in at him from the kitchen. His tail swished back and forth flicking a few paper Akari had sitting knocking them to the floor. He raised an eyebrow when the cat growled narrowing it's yellow eyes at him before hissing.More Like This
OffspringDawn was barely approaching, a distant light cresting the hills of Konoha, as an ANBU team swarmed through the trees. One carried another on his back listening intently for her shaky breaths. The injury hadn’t been as bad as they had originally thought but they still needed to get her to a medical unit quickly. They’d been checking out an old hideout that Danzo had used to train Root Core members at when a trap had been triggered. A freshly trained ANBU had made the mistake of tripping a wire and caught Akari across the stomach and back with a sickle like weapon. She couldn’t react because the size of the thing had been enormous and it had impaled her to a wall. The problem wasn’t as much the initial injury but the immediate reaction that had occurred. Akari’s skin had grown paler and her hair had turned a silver mist color, they feared the weapon had been coated in a type of poison.More Like This

Offspring Chapter 2-Hatake-Personal SpaceThe village was sleeping peacefully by the time Tsunade had agreed to let Akari leave the tower and return to her home. However, she hadn't figured out a way to get rid of her new found friend. Uzumaki Naruto had been on her right hand side since Tsuande had started questioning her. Her brain was beginning to ache. It was a dull ache…but an ache. She took a slow breath and turned to face him stopping in the street as they walked. One thing about Naruto was he didn't ever shut up. She gently placed her hand over his mouth and let a sigh of relief out.More Like This
"Listen, kid, one question at a time and only seven per day. You've already hit your quota. Sorry." She let her hand slip from his mouth and waited for protest. He raised an eyebrow and put a hand on his neck grinning and then laughed heartily.
"Sorry, yeah! I forget! I just can't believe Kakashi-sensei has a daughter!" he smirked turning back to watch Kakashi who was walking lazily towards them with Sasuke trailing about a step beh
Offspring Chapter 3-Hatake-Taking OrdersKakashi hadn't really felt like he was a horrible person, not to the extent that he had after he'd slept the night of meeting his daughter. There was just so much rolling around inside his head that he'd awoken four times in a cold sweat breathing heavily imagining the things Danzo probably had done to Akari. He didn't know her and yet a strange foreign piece of him felt like he'd already grown with her and known her on some level. She was so much like him that it scared him beyond belief. She was strongly introverted and bitter to the core about her past that he wondered if this was punishment for not saving Sasuke. He gripped the porcelain basin in the bathroom and sighed looking up at his gruff image. He was too old for this. What the hell did he think he was doing? This young woman deserved better than what he was going to offer, hell, he'd already fucked this up once. He let one student literally walk through hell, one mourn the what seemed imminent death of her teammate after sheMore Like This
