The Legendary Sage of Konoha; Kakashi Chronicles 2
Good Vs. Evil, Brother Vs. Brother!
~ Akashi: Kehehehe... Look who's giving the speech of his life.
Narrator: They were glaring intensely at each other following and analyzing each other's move. The wind had blown up so much that a small storm had begun roaring over them.
Kakashi: What exactly did Kabuto do to you? There is no way you knew all those techniques or had any of those eyes before you "left" Konoha. Why did you choose to stay if you were taken away and tortured, why are you siding with Kabuto and Madara?!
Akashi: ... Time for talking is over... Now we fight!
Narrator: Akashi pulled out his katana and went straight for Kakashi who drew out a kunai and blocked it. The storm was getting more and more violent as rain started to pour down heavily as lightning crossed the air. After clashing for some rounds, Akashi went for Kakashi's rear with a rasengan as Kakashi back-flipped and met it with a raikiri mid-air before landing again.
Kakashi: *Huff... Huff*, maybe it's time I get serious as well...
Akashi: You just got to ask yourself why you doomed yourself by taking me on alone, and sending away the only help you could get for miles and miles. This just isn't your lucky day is it, brother?
Kakashi: Whatever Kabuto has done to you, it's never too late to turn back. You were one of Danzo's most loyal servants, and I know you cared about Konoha and its people back then.
Akashi: Hatake Kakashi... Still trying to avoid the fated battle. I'll tell you what; since you so desperately are trying to make things right, I might as well let you in on a little secret. My goal was never to come here and kill that girl...
Kakashi: ... What do you mean?
Akashi: Even though she might tell you something, she has no clue on anything important. Madara and Kabuto can't give a rat's ass about her. The reason I came here was because of you, and you alone. I knew you would try to send her away to safety if you believed my intentions was getting to her, and as I predicted, you sent her away with your only ally. This is actually the perfect outcome of this situation! Hahahahaha!...
Kakashi: Humph... Even so, you will still have to beat me.
Akashi: Oh, ehehe... my intentions are not to beat you, but to collect your sharingan!
Narrator: Akashi preformed some hand seals, as fire came from his mouth.
Akashi: Katon: Gokakyu no jutsu! (Fire style: Grand Fireball technique!).
Kakashi *Thinking*: He don't leave me much of choice here... Katon: Gokakyu no jutsu!
Narrator: Kakashi countered Akashi's fire technique with one of his own as both fireballs clashed. Then suddenly Kakashi felt a presence from behind as he quickly dodged to the right, making Akashi's fireball go past him, hitting one of Akashi's Shadow clones who were sneaking up from behind.
Akashi: Impressive, but you won't be able to keep up for long...
Kakashi *Thinking*: There just got to be a way to turn this guy. There is just something about him that's not right.
Akashi: Don't let your guard down!
Narrator: While Kakashi was fighting Akashi, Gai had made it back to the village. Once there, he met up with Ibiki and Inoichi, whom took care of Sonia, as Gai rushed to see Konohamaru and Shikaku.
Konohamaru: Gai?! Why are you rushing through the door?! Where is Kakashi and the rest?
Gai: No time to explain! Konohamaru, Shikaku! This is bad! Me and Kakashi managed to catch up with Naruto and the rest, but the situation was under control. Naruto had captured one of the members, and me and Kakashi was suppose to bring her back to the village while they continued to the meeting in Kiri. However, one of the members that escaped during Naruto's fight with Akatsuki came back for me and Kakashi, and Kakashi decided that he would fight him while I brought back the hostage to Konoha!
Shikaku: What?! Then we need to send for assistance to help Kakashi out!
Shikaku: No time to talk, who are available here in the village and who might we to send out, Konohamaru?
Konohamaru: Ehm... Ehm... It says here that Ino, Kiba and Choji are on a mission, but should be here in not too long.
Shikaku: We don't have a minute to waste, who else?!
Konohamaru: Eh.. right... ehm... Tenten and Shino... No they as well are on a mission... Oh! Sai and Neji are down at the academy helping Iruka out at the moment. What about them?
Shikaku: Perfect, Gai let's go!
Neji: Yes that's correct, Sai is quite an ex...
Shikaku: Iruka, we need to interrupt your class!
Narrator: Iruka, Neji and Sai were informing some new academy students when Shikaku and Gai came running in.
Iruka: Shikaku, Gai? What's going on?
Shikaku: No time to explain, I'm sorry, but Neji and Sai need to come with Gai this instance.
Iruka: Okay, I guess that shouldn't be a problem...
Gai: We need to go at once, I'll explain on the way.
Narrator: Gai, Neji and Sai went out the door as Shikaku took Iruka outside to explain the situation.
Kakashi: *Pant*, *Pant*...
Akashi: Getting tired?
Kakashi *Thinking*: He's stronger than I thought. If I keep up this much longer, I might be forced to use...
Akashi: Hahaha, you're pathetic! Here I thought I would get a real challenge from no other than my lost brother... What an utter disappointment!
Kakashi: ... Winning fights isn't always about pure power; you will also need to use your head!
Narrator: Kakashi charged up a Raikiri and went straight for Akashi. Akashi countered with a Rasengan, as they both clashed with intense power.
Kakashi *Thinking*: I knew it! I knew I saw something fishy about this guy!
Narrator: As they clashed, Kakashi got a closer look on Akashi, as he spotted a strange sign on his neck.
Kakashi *Thinking*: That's a binding seal!
Narrator: From behind Akashi, you could see one of Kakashi's shadow clones closing in.
Akashi: You think you can get me that easy?!
Narrator: Two arms stretched out of Akashi's back and slashed through Kakashi's clone with his katana.
Kakashi *Thinking*: There is simply no way that Kabuto could have done something to this guy, making him learn all those jutsus. Can this be the...
Narrator: A huge explosion occurred as they both dashed back from it.
Akashi: Seems like I've underestimated you a little... brother... However...
Narrator: Akashi was just about to make his next move, when suddenly backup arrived.
Akashi *Thinking*: Damn it...
Narrator: Suddenly two birds smashed to the ground where Akashi stood as he barely dodged them.
Narrator: Kakashi turned around as he saw Gai, Neji and Sai closing in.
Akashi: Well my brother... This seems to be the end for now, until next time.
Narrator: Suddenly he vanished in a cloud of smoke. As Gai, Sai and Neji got up to kakashi, he fell to one of his knees as both his arms touched the ground.
Gai: Are you alright?!
Kakashi: *Pant*... Yeah I'll manage. Ten minutes later, and I would have been forced to do something drastic. Good thing backup arrived.
Neji: Seems like the enemy got away.
Kakashi: Not quite. I managed to put a blood sample on him...
Sai: Blood sample?
Gai: Haha, that's how Kakashi always win!
Kakashi: I've worked up a blood sample for tracking enemies by mixing blood from my summoning dogs with a special ingredients. If I'm able to get the blood on the one I want to track, then there is no problem for Pakkun and the rest to track him or her down.
Neji: I see.
Kakashi: Kuchiyose no jutsu! (Summoning technique).
Pakkun: Hey there!
Kakashi: I was barely able to summon you with my remaining chakra. Pakkun, I need you to track down the blood.
Pakkun: So you've marked a target with it? Gotcha, let's go!
Narrator: Pakkun leaped ahead to show the way.
Narrator: Kakashi almost fell to the ground again as he tried to get up, but Sai caught him, and helped him up.
Sai: Sure you're alright?
Kakashi: Yeah, I'll manage.
Narrator: He said as he pulled down his head protector to cover his sharingan.
Continued: The group had chased the sense for some minutes when Pakkun suddenly stopped in his track.
Kakashi: How's the track? You still got the sense?
Pakkun: It's as clear as the sky. However, the enemy seems to have headed towards the Wave country.
Kakashi: The Wave country, huh?
Gai: Are you thinking the same as me?
Neji: So he's probably going to head back to Madara and Kabuto. Does this mean that they're heading towards Kiri and the kage meeting?
Kakashi: Hmmm... Seems that way. In that case, we should intercept him and warn the kages.
Neji: We should pick up the pace then!
Kakashi: Right. One thing is bothering me about him though.
Kakashi: Not only did I spot a binding seal on his neck...
Neji: A binding seal??
Sai: One that is used to control a certain individual, putting him or her under your command.
Kakashi: Correct, but I also noticed something strange about this guy. No man is able to learn all those jutsus he could by just having a sharingan, nor by being experimented on.
Gai: So what do you think?
Kakashi: I'm suspecting that this man, Akashi... my brother... may have the long extinct Mirror element.
Neji: Mirror element?!
Gai: It can't be?!
Sai: A person with mirror element haven't been seen or heard of for at least 100 years!
Kakashi: Exactly, that's what so strange about it.
Sai: Didn't you say that this man, your brother was abducted as newborn by Danzo and kept hidden?
Kakashi: Yeah, that's what he told me. And according to my intelligence, that seems plausible.
Sai: If he has the rare Mirror element, which is said to be one of the fewest bloodline limits that's not bound by family and that only appears during time of war, much like the rinnegan, then there is no wonder why Danzo wanted him. But how could he know that he would have it, even before you two were born... and why him? It doesn't make any sense.
Gai: One with the mirror element would be able to copy any jutsus he sees as long as he has and mastered the required elements for it, even Bloodline limits, right?
Sai: Right, or at least in theory. Not every secret about this element has been revealed.
Kakashi: So if one with the mirror element has both earth and water as elements then he would be able to copy jutsus like wood element for example, if he engaged in battle with Yamato, or in this case, the Shadow techniques of the Nara clan.
Gai: So that means he must have at least the element of...
Gai: So that's how he's able to use it!
Sai: Then how about Rasengan? That's just pure chakra...
Kakashi: I'm not so sure on that one yet though.
Neji: So if he's under a binding seal. Then that must mean someone like Kabuto or Madara have him under his control, right?
Gai: And if we're able to break that seal...
Kakashi: Then my brother will be free again!
