previously: The story takes place after Hashirama vs Madara. (Tobi is a random Uchiha here.) Madara had formed Akatsuki and hid in the shadows,but they managed to capture Tobirama, so Akatsuki could made its move.In exchange for Tobirama's life, Madara made Hashirama sacrifice himself. Then they released Tobirama, but he was under genjutsu. The hokage's advisor and the head of the Hyuga clan cancelled the genjutsu, and Tobirama tried to warn the other nations to be careful. Unfortunately, Zetsu and his clones killed the messengers and gave false messages to the villages. This was Madara's plan to turn the nations against each other and start a war. In addition,he sent his men to kill the kages...The first match was Tokage, a new member of Akatsuki , vs Hisashi, the 1st Tsuchikage. The second match is Kakuzu vs Kazuki the 1st Mizukage.
-Haru, come back! Haru! – yelled a boy, his voice echoing in the valley bordering the Country of the Wind.
-But it’s my turn now!- shouted a younger lad, playing with a ball near the lake of the oasis.
-It’s getting late, mother will scold us!
-Alright, alright, brother, I’m coming- and thus Haru was merrily skipping towards his fellow, bouncing the ball. Suddenly he slipped on a wet rock, but Akihiro caught him in a flash.
-Be more careful- sighed Akihiro.
-Thanks brother, your speed is so cool. I wish I’ll become a genin like you one day.
-You have a long way to go, and by then I’ll already be a chuunin so you’ll have to obey me- laughed the elder brother.
-No fair- cried Haru.
-Don’t be pouty, after all, noone is as strong as Kazekage sama.
-Kazekage sama?- pried Haru.-How strong is he?
-He is the strongest in the village, the best wind user of course.- replied Akihiro, then grabbed the hand of his brother.
-So cool! I want to be Kazekage!- said Haru excitedly.
-Haha, we’ll see about that. You have to surpass me first. Let’s just go home for now.-answered he, and they started to walk through the desert.
-Wait, my ball! I forgot about it!- Haru broke out of Akihiro’s hand, and ran towards the ball that rolled away when he fell. Akihiro was waiting, while the sunset was painting red the autumn sky.
A minute later Haru came back with the ball in his hands. Suddenly he stopped.
-Sigh, you always make me worried. It’s getting dark, let’s not waste any more time...The desert is dangerous at this time.-but Akihiro couldn’t see the figure emerging from the ground behind his back. Haru dropped the ball in his fear and raised his hands pointing towards the silhouette.
-What’s wrong, stop being weird.-frowned Akihiro. Then he was stabbed from behind, his blood sprinkled over the face of his little brother.
Haru collapsed. The last thing he saw was a plant-like monster taking the shape of his dead brother.
Meanwhile in Iwagakure, the Tsuchikage woke up. –Where am I? –he asked the medic next to his bed.
-Tsuchikage sama, thanks god you are alright.-sighed the ninja.-We were worried about you. You have to rest for a few days, but you’ll be fine.
-I cannot rest. Peace in the ninja world is in danger. My opponent was not an ordinary assassin. We have to contact the other villages- said Tsuchikage and he tried to sit up, but the pain made him lie back.
-Don’t push yourself, Hisashi sama. Please be patient. Eiji is taking care of your responsibilities.-answered the doctor.
-Eiji? He is a fine ninja. I’m...relieved...-Hisashi fell asleep again.
-So, how are we supposed to strengthen our position among the Great Ninja Villages? It’s...-the Kazekage and his advisors were having a meeting when suddenly a young boy broke into the hall.
-Excuse me Kazekage sama, I couldn’t hold him up- apologized a guard.
-Kazekage sama...forgive...my...intrusion...-panted a young boy-...but...there is no time to waste!
-Who do you think you are to...-an old man raised his voice but the Kazekage gave him an angry look.
-What happened? Talk, boy!-turned the Kazekage towards Akihiro.
-My brother! Akihiro! He was taken hostage in the valley at the border of the country! Follow me kazekage sama, please save my brother!-gabbled the exhausted genin.
-Kazekaga sama. Shall we send a scouting squad to investigate the case?-asked the man sitting next to the kage.
-No time for that. If it happened at the border, they might have already left the Country of Wind. But if their purpose is to lure us into a trap, we need to take extra precaution. I’ll go personally. You take care of the village. –answered Isao to his right-hand man.-Boy, what’s your name?
-My name? It’s Haru, Kazekage sama.
-Alright, Haru, please show me the way. We’ll go by wind. Let’s go.-said the Kazekage and once they were outside the building, he created a small swirl of wind under his feet, grabbed the hand of the boy, and they took flight.
A few minutes later they took off near the valley.-You can show your real form now. I know you are not Haru. You took the shape of Akihiro, a genin of our village, but you used the name of his younger brother.-said the Kazekage to the enemy.
-So you knew it all along?- smirked Zetsu, taking his original black and white shape.
-What do you want? And where are the boys?
-Well they are dead. But I’ll make sure that you soon meet them.-said Zetsu in a threatening tone.
-You bastard you gonna pay for that!-shouted Isao and quickly formed some seals, while gathering chakra in his lungs. Then he blew out several blades of wind, cutting Zetsu into pieces. However the pieces started to splice together themselves, and Zetsu stood up without a harm.
„It’s gonna be harder than I thought”. Right after a moment, some roots grew out of the sand below, and Zetsu tried to capture Isao, but he formed a blade of wind with his right hand, and cut through the branches.
-Nice move, Kazekage!-praised Zetsu. The Kazekage left no time though for talking, as he ran towards his enemy, with his windblade in his hand. He tried to cut Zetsu again, he jumped backwards, but Isao stretched the length of the blade and managed to pierce Zetsu.
-This time you won’t escape-said Isao confidently, preparing his right hand for a sealing technique, but suddenly several clones emerged from the ground, all of them pushing towards the kage. Isao was surrounded, so he wielded his sword in a circle, bisecting all the clones, but other ones emerged from under his feet and grabbed him.
„Damn there are so many of them. I have no choice.”-thought Isao, and he moulded a huge amount of chakra, then he started to spin around, while forming a tornado around himself. His body became the whirlwind itself!
He managed to get rid of the Zetsus, but when he finished his jutsu, he fell onto his knees.
The bodies of the clones were lying all around the place, motionless.The original emerged in front of the weary man.
-Why am I...What did you do to me?-asked the Kazekage. As an answer to his question, Zetsu-spores started to form a white mass around the Kazekage’s body, growing larger and larger, covering his whole body at the end of the process.
-When my clones grabbed you, they planted some spores on you, that suck your chakra. This is the end for you.
-I didn’t expect that...-the Kazekage said his last words as the mass fully covered him.
-It was an easy win.-said White Zetsu.
-Don’t brag. Let’s go report to Madara.-answered the black half of the being.
The last rays of the Sun were shining on the white statue of the Kazekage,as the nightwind blew a bloody ball near the dead body.
