Naruto 478: A Sudden Victory
Itachi stands before Danzo. He smiles and Danzo smiles back. Sasuke looks over at Danzo and suddenly Itachi tries to attack Danzo but instantly Itachi vanishes as Danzo looks at Sasuke.
Danzo: “Nice try Sasuke but unlike your brother you are no where near as good at genjutsu.”
Karin thinking: “So thats how he is doing it. Damn it I must warn Sasuke at once.”
Karin smiles and Madara sees the smile then points to Karin.
Madara: “You will keep your mouth shut if you intend on living past this fight.”
Karin thinking: “Damn it. He must know it too but does sasuke realize as well. hmm”
Danzo smiles and looks at Sasuke. Then he sheaths his sword and brings his hands together.
Danzo: “It would appear you have gained much since you left the leaf village sasuke but you are no where near ready to fight someone like me.”
Sasuke gets angry and Danzo notes the anger on his face. Danzo looks up at Madara.
Danzo: “There is no point in me fighting this one. He is not ready. He has yet to reach the full potential of his sharingan.”
Sasuke: “I will avenge the death of the uchiha clan!”
Sasuke charges forward and Danzo dodges a sword slash. Danzo grips sasuke by the throat and lifts him above the ground. Sasuke struggles and suddenly his eyes widen as he tries to free himself from Danzo’s grip.
Madara: “So be it. You are right Danzo. He is not ready to face someone like you.”
Danzo: “Then I will leave him in your capable hands.”
Danzo drops Sasuke who has passed out on the ground and is laying on the ground in a stunned state. Danzo looks down at Sasuke.
Danzo: “If you and I have survived this conflict, I await our next fight. Till then remember the sacrifices your brother and your clan made. Do not make their sacrifices in vain.”
Madara appears next to Danzo and releases Fuu and Torune next to Danzo.
Madara: “I believe these belong to you. You certainly have surrounded yourself with some very decent underlings.”
Fuu: “Boss I don’t know where we have been but I healed up Torune. If you want us to we can make another attempt to take out Madara.”
Danzo: “Negative. We must return to the village as soon as possible. Madara will trouble us
no further. Correct?”
Madara: “Nothing more needs to be done. Sasuke is not ready to fight you but I must warn you that the other villages have all come together in an alliance to remove you from your position as hokage.”
Danzo: “I will see what I can do to disrupt that alliance. Fuu. Torune. We must return to
konoha immediately with all due haste.”
Fuu and Torune: “Right!”
Fuu, Torune, and Danzo all run away leaving Madara, Sasuke, and Karin behind. Sasuke is looking at the fleeing Danzo and reaches his arm out. Sasuke fades out unconscious. Madara looks down and places sasuke over his shoulder.
Karin thinking: “Damn it. Sasuke was so close but what is going on between Madara and Danzo?
Is there some kind of alliance between the two of them.”
Madara looks up at Karin who is still looking at Danzo.
Madara thinking: “It would appear she has become a liability now. I appologize sasuke but I think I may just have to kill off one of your group’s members.”
Sakura, Sai, Kiba, and Lee are watching as Danzo leaves along with Fuu and Torune. Sakura turns to the others to see Kiba and even Lee have concerned looks on their faces.
Sakura: “Now is our chance. Sasuke is wounded and this may be our only time to take him out.”
Kiba: “But you saw what that guy with sasuke did. We don’t stand a chance against them.”
Lee: “I am with you sakura but this is extremely dangerous.”
Madara: “And what exactly were you intending on doing?”
The others turn around to see Madara standing in front of them with Sasuke on his shoulder along with Karin next to him. Sasuke look up slightly to see Sakura and the others.
Sasuke collapses back on Madara’s shoulder. Karin smiles and pulls out a hidden kunai.
Sakura: “We have come here to retrieve sasuke and bring him back to the leaf village.”
Madara: “No. You have come here to kill Sasuke. I heard you myself.”
Karin: “Lets just kill them and get it over with.”
Madara turns to face Karin. Karin is suddenly surprised as she looks into his mask and at his eye with a nervous look on your face.
Madara: “It is time we determined your exact value to akatsuki. I therefore wish to make a bet.”
Madara: “You will face off against Karin to the death. If you win I will give you sasuke. If you lose then your team mates will become prisoners of Akatsuki.”
Kiba places his hand on her shoulder and shakes his head. Sakura moves away from his shoulder and looks at Madara square in the eye.
Sakura: “I accept!”
Madara: “Then the bet is on. If either of you attempt to flee I will kill the one that flees this fight.”
Sakura: “I have no intention of fleeing this fight. I do not flee from fights I know I can win.”
Karin giggles, wipes her glasses, and then pushes them onto her face.
Karin: “By the time this fight is over you just may wish you had chose to flee this fight.”
Madara: “Follow me. You three stay where you are. Any interference will result in your immediate death.”
Madara walks over to the clearing with Sakura and Karin following. They stop in the middle and look at each other while Madara moves to a nearby tree branch. Sakura pulls a kunai from her boot and prepares to fight while Karin smiles at her. Sakura suddenly charges forward and Karin in responce charges forward at her.
