MANGA 629 : LONG TIME NO SEE
The Juubi displays a piece of its power....
(The whole battlefield is destroyed by the cyclones and the lightning covering entire area)
JUUBI : Ooooooohhhhhhhhh!!!
(The pitch of its roar goes on reducing as the scene changes)
(A pitch dark black space forms a spiraling portal on it)
(Two figures gets out of the portal)
(Obito pace out from Kakashi by throwing a kick at him)
KAKASHI : Gahhhh!!
OBITO : .....
KAKASHI : (coughs) (gets up) Obito I...
(Both are facing each other)
OBITO : (quietly) Shut up, Kakashi. I brought you here so that Naruto won't be here to protect you. This is similar to what happened with Rin.
KAKASHI : (remembers killing Rin).... (turns his MS to normal Sharingan)
OBITO : I am going gouge out that eye once I kill you. Since it's mine. (imports a sword from his eye and dashes towards Kakashi)
(One whole page is shown showing traces of Obito left behind while he approaches Kakashi)
(At their background, small small panels are shown containing Kakashi's memories running through his mind from his first meet with Obito till his last words at the Kannabi bridge)
OBITO : ...I'm already...going to die...but....I can become your eye...and from now on I will see the future...
(Obito raises his sword to stab him into his heart)
(Kakashi remembers Naruto's words)
NARUTO : (puts his hand on his heart)...Not having my friends hear...is the most painful thing for me.
(Kakashi comes to senses)
(A lightning runs through and cut the sword in two halves)
KAKASHI : Raikiri!!! (focus on his Sharingan) This is the gift I got from my best friend Obito. He still lives on (puts his left hand on his heart) here.
OBITO : ?!!
KAKASHI : It does not belongs to you.
(A bright light emerges from the black dimension as the scene changes)
(Several shinobis are lying dead on the ground at a great distance)
(The kyuubi cloak fades away)
(The Juubi is surrounded by dust)
NARUTO : (normal mode) Damn it.
KURAMA : He got us this time.
NARUTO : I could protect those who were around me.
SAKURA : (place her hand on Naruto's shoulder) Naruto. Don't blame yourself.
???? : You had put up a good fight.
SAKURA : ?!!
NARUTO : ?!!
(Four figures are shown into the dust showing their backs at the alliance)
???? : (One of the figure turns his head) Knucklehead Idiot.
NARUTO : Sa...?!!
SAKURA : ....su...?!!
NARUTO/SAKURA : .....ke?!!
(A blow of wind clears the dust showing Sasuke looking at Naruto and Sakura)
MADARA : He's here.
HASHIRAMA : Cool Madara!! You controlled the Juubi alone. [ No wonder he did that.] (remembers)
MINATO : There is someone with my teleporatation seal on it nearby the battlefield. But the chakra density is very less.
HASHIRAMA : Lets go. Young Hokage.
(Teleports from the village)
(reaches the place)
EVERYONE : ?!!!
(Everyone witnesses the defeated Kages)
(Katsuyu is shown healing the Kages using Tsunade's chakra)
KATSUYU : ?!!
HASHIRAMA : Tsunade?!!
KATSUYU : Shodaime Hokage? Orochimaru? Ho-
TOBIRAMA : That will be explained later. Katsuyu. Didn't Tsunade summoned you? You were supposed to protect her.
KATSUYU : I apologize Nidaime Hokage. Lady Tsunade didn't summoned me during her battle. She ordered me to save the other Kages as soon as possible.
TOBIRAMA : Damn you Madara. I am going to kill that bastard.
HASHIRAMA : Wait. (clap) (A wood emerges out from the ground and puts the fallen tree aside) ?!!
(The whole gap between Tsunade's upper and lower body is covered with blood with some organs)
(Suigetsu and Karin faints as soon as they watches it)
OROCHIMARU : (gets up on the tree) It was a mistake to resurrect Madara.
MINATO : Lady Tsunade.
HIRUZEN : Shodaime Hokage, you must save Tsunade and the Kages.
HASHIRAMA : I can't. My healing abilities are limited to myself.
OROCHIMARU : Leave this to me.
TOBIRAMA : That's impossible.
HIRUZEN : What are you plotting Orochimaru?
OROCHIMARU : Don't worry, Sarutobi Sensei. I have no intentions of killing the Kages. Tsunade won't be healed with only medical ninjutsu. Without Hashirama's DNA, she won't be able to survive. But I also now has his cells in my body. I'll be able to deal with this.
HASHIRAMA : We have no other option left.
HIRUZEN : Then, Shodaime, Nidaime and Yondaime Hokage, you go ahead with Sasuke. I'll stay here and join you later. You must head to the battlefield soon to stop Madara's madness.
SASUKE : (looking at Suigetsu and Karin and then at Juugo)....Juugo. Stay here with Orochimaru.
HASHIRAMA : Lets go Tobirama.
TOBIRAMA : I can trace that bastard from here. Lets go.
MADARA : (shown standing right in front of the Juubi) Long time no see, Hashirama. And you too, Tobirama. I cleared this for you, so that we can start our battle. This time with the Juubi. (devilish smirk)(remembers)
MADARA : [ I was right... This chakra is..Hashirama!! ] I must welcome him. Nicely.
(connects himself with the Juubi without anyone noticing him with his wood)
MADARA : [ I'll handle Obito later. For now, lets clear the field. ]
TOBIRAMA : I'll show you, Madara. This time I won't let my brother handle this alone.
MADARA : (ignores Tobirama's words) Hmm. Who are those two?
SHINOBI ALLIANCE : Does the Kages arrived?
(Naruto looks at the figure standing beside Sasuke)
(The coat of the figure says Yondaime Hokage)
NARUTO : ?!! (remembers) [ I know you can do it. ] (tears rolls down from his eyes) D..Da...d?
SAKURA : Dad?
INO : Sasuke?
KONOHA 11 : ?!!
SHINOBI ALLIANCE : They are the former Hokages.
NARUTO : ?!!
SHINOBI 1 : Did Sasuke revived them?
SHINOBI 2 : Is he planning to use them against us?
SHINOBI 3 : We're doomed.
NARUTO : ?!!
KONOHA 11 : ?!!
(Naruto dashes forward)
SAKURA : Naruto?!!
SASUKE : (as calm as always) .....(looking at Naruto approaching him with rasengan in his hand)
NARUTO : How dare you, Saassukke?
MINATO : ?!! (turns back) (looks at the rasengan) [ He is Naruto. But... ]
HASHIRAMA : Huh?
TOBIRAMA : .....
NARUTO : Sasuke!!!
(Naruto is about to hit Sasuke but Sasuke is still standing calm)
Will Naruto believe in Sasuke's change of heart?
