The Chronicles of Naruto Uzumaki: Naruto Chapter 3- Naruto’s Retrieval Team
The next day in Konoha, in the Hokages office we see Kakashi stands before Shikaku and Shikamaru.
- Shikaku are you sure Shikamaru is ready for this?
Shikaku looks over at Shikamaru closes his eye and smiles
- Absolutely… he has become as or maybe even smarter than myself, he is the perfect person to be your advisor on this mission, and I think I’m better off here planning and strategizing from Kohona’s home front, I will get all the preparations ready for you return.
Kakashi looks over at Shikamaru nods towards him
- then get ready Shikamaru We must be ready to move out tomorrow.
– Yes, Hokage
Shikaku and Shikamaru turn and leave the room…you see them walking side by side down the hall at a very slow pace Shikamaru has his hands behind his head.
- Dad, are you sure I’m ready?
- Shikamaru the question is, do you think you are ready, because if not I will take your place and try to help Naruto to the best of MY ability, because HE would and has done that for us.
Shikamaru hands fall to his side and his lazy walk becomes a determined stride but stops and goes back towards the Hokage’s office … the scene zooms in on Shikaku’s face which has a big smile…
- yeah son, you are ready…
The Scene fades out and cuts to the Next Day…
Kakashi and Shikamaru are seen walking together towards the gate
- is everyone ready?
- Yes, Hokage
- please stop calling me Hokage, I never have got used to that
- hehe yes Hok…
Kakashi tilts his head and glares at Shikamaru
- Yes, Kakashi sensei
- So how are they doing?
- they are excited…
The scene cuts to the gate and shows four peoples backs all looking at Kakashi and Shikamaru
- HELL YEAH we are excited!!!!…
The scene zooms around and focuses on the faces of the four individuals
The scene does a four panel split screens revealing the four to be Sakura, Sai, Hinata and Sasuke.
- Good….. So Shikamaru did you tell them what they will be doing on this mission
- perfect then let me. Myself and Shikamaru handpicked you four for this mission, because you are the best at what you do and that all of us here will do anything for Naruto.
Shikamaru, Sai, Hinata, Sakura, and Sasuke all nod their heads in agreement.
- Sai you have the task of passing info, notes and plans back to Konoha with your ninja art, we can also travel to the summit all the quicker with your art.
Sai nods his head in agreement
- yes Hokage
- Sakura I chose you because beside Tsunade you are the best healer in the land and the alliance will need your input on what is needed for the possible battle ahead.
- Right, Hokage
- Hinata you are going to be my eyes, and will have a joint mission with Sasuke.
- OK Hokage
- and you Sasuke, well Shikamaru thought we should bring you along
Kakashi looks at Shikamaru
- what is it you said, oh that’s right … he will fight harder than anyone for Naruto because he owes him one, but you and Hinata will protect Naruto at this Summit.
- but who knows if that’s even necessary at this point.
- True, but it must be done to protect the future Hokage…
- Lets Go retrieve Naruto Team!!!! And please STOP CALLING ME HOKAGE !
The scene show everyone jump on one of Sai’s ink Eagles and fly off into the Horizen… the scene fades white and cuts to a wooded area and is zoomed in on someone’s feet walking….. buts then cuts to a split screen of 20 pairs of eyes… we fade out.
