6th Hokage Dimensional Chronicles ~ Chapter 7
Okay, I understand that I’m posting a chapter after a long time but that’s something that was bound to occur given that it’s my last year in High School. I hope you all understand. Initially, I thought to release a double chapter to try make myself excused but due to some modifications still needed over Chapter 8, I’ll post 7 for now and Chapter 8 very soon (in the following 5 days…). Stay tuned along with my FF nevertheless and don’t forget the last movie part of the movie btw.
CHAPTER 7 – Target - The Deathly Hallows!
Hermione: How is this possible? Your scar hasn’t pained since…
Harry: …19 years!
This gut-wrenching feeling - inflicting this queasiness - and his forehead pain, for Harry, there was no more doubt that…
Harry: Voldemort is back.
Ron gulped while Hermione was quite startled by what Harry just said. Naruto was in complete dilemma though as he didn’t really know why everybody just freaked out.
Naruto: Who is Voldemort?
Harry was still stunned by his burning scar and the obvious conclusion that sprung to him. He took a deep breath.
Harry: He was the most evil wizard to have ever lived and…
The evil deeds of fallen Lord Voldemort were recited for a good time to Naruto till the strident sound of the gargoyle statue interrupted them.
Ron: Some people are coming to the office.
Hermione: Let’s keep Voldemort’s return news between us for now till we are not absolutely certain. We cannot create panic for now.
Everyone nodded as Hermione’s office door opened; making way to the 4 House masters – Neville, Flitwick, Smith and Slughorn.
Hermione: What is it?
Neville: Well, we’d like to know Harry’s answer.
Flitwick: As you know, since the demise of You-Know-Who, the Defense against Dark Arts post was eradicated from Hogwarts.
Slughorn: And keeping the student at Hogwarts is risky as they have no duel experience.
Zacharias: So, Harry?
Hermione: Harry is officially the Defense against Dark Arts professor as from now.
This proclamation by Hermione made mostly everyone relieved.
Hermione: Also, Ron will assist the lower classes also as Harry’s aid and most importantly, Hogwarts is as from now on Level 2 alert.
The teachers were quite astounded by this declaration of newly-Headmistress.
Slughorn: Well, aren’t you going a bit fast with this?
Zacharias: Yes, it’s only one enemy.
Hermione: It’s by precaution, so that students don’t wander themselves outside Hogwarts till Kabuto is found. He may be one but his force is to be reckoned.
They couldn’t really say word as Ron seemed utterly impressed with his wife’s authority.
Hermione: One last thing, along with magic defense moves being taught again, I’m also appointing the ninjas to teach some of their techniques to our students.
The vibes were mixed about this. While Neville and Flitwick accepted readily, Zacharias shrugged and Slughorn’s pride eyes were definitely against it.
Slughorn: Well, I think we’re “satisfied” now. Let’s go now, guys.
Sarcasm was definitely noticeable in his voice while he went outside and the other 3 professors followed him.
Ron: Slughorn wasn’t really happy.
Harry: Let it be.
Hermione: Please excuse the cold reception, Naruto.
Naruto: I’ve received so much loneliness and hate in my childhood that this is insignificant.
Ron: Still, I don’t see you ever form part of his Slug Club one day.
Naruto: I don’t know what it is but I doubt it.
The room suddenly echoed with laughter and joy; disintegrating the tension and anxiety that were all around moments earlier.
Hermione: I've heard that Albus has more chance to form part of it, Harry.
Harry: Really, I think I’ll go meet him and James next.
Ron: I’ll come with you too.
Naruto: Just one thing. I accepted to help in training you, wizards, with ninjutsu but if you grant it, I’d like to ask some more “qualified” persons to come and help in that task.
Hermione: Well, I don’t think it will be a problem…
Ron: Apart for the accommodation factor.
Naruto: Don’t worry; they’ll make arrangements in the outside.
Harry: Are you sure? Winter is coming soon.
Naruto: Yes, this will not be a problem.
Hermione: Alright then.
*some hours later*
Tsunade: I see, so they are waiting to get approval by the in-charge there.
Shizune: Do you think they will get any trouble?
Pakkun: Kakashi seemed confident that they will be able to convince them.
Tsunade: *sigh* Send back this to…
As she was going to give another message to Pakkun, Sakura and Neji just appeared out of nowhere.
Tsunade: You guys, here?
Shizune: And the others? Any problem?
Sakura and Neji began narrating the events occurring at Hogwarts; giving them Naruto’s orders.
**10 minutes later**
Tsunade: I see…
Shizune: So he wants some reinforcement along with teaching jounins.
Tsunade: …Shizune, go and contact the persons he asked for and the other necessary arrangements.
Shizune rushed outside as Sakura looked upon Tsunade.
Tsunade: He sure isn’t doing things half-way there, isn’t it?
Neji: He’s still the same.
Tsunade: *sigh* anything else?
Sakura: Well, he asked to bring him some Ramen from Ichiraku…
Tsunade: I should have guessed.
Sakura: But he also said about Kabuto’s motives.
Tsunade’s eyes showed lot more interest suddenly.
Tsunade: Go ahead.
Sakura: Yes, he said that Kabuto is surely after…
Naruto: …after the Hallows.
Kakashi: I see!
Shikamaru: So he wants to master everything in the world with this and indeed, with those…
Harry: …He’ll become the master of Death and with the wicked powers, he already have…
Ron: He’ll be nearly invincible if this occurs.
Hermione: We can’t let him!
Naruto: I already sent back Sakura and Neji to inform Tsunade about it.
Kakashi: I see…
Shikamaru: We need a plan right now. A plan that will permit us to outpace Kabuto. Where are the Hallows right now?
Ron, Hermione and Harry looked to each other.
Harry: Come with me, Ron and Naruto.
They went to the outside till Dumbledore’s grave. With a trembling movement of his Phoenix wand, the white tomb opened. There, among the body dust of the famous Headmaster, was the Elder Wand.
Ron: Here’s the Elder Wand, the first Hallow.
Naruto: You had it here all this time?
From Hermione’s office, Kakashi, Shikamaru and Hermione were seeing the three retrieving the Elder wand.
Hermione: The second Hallow, the Resurrection Stone is somewhere in the forest and the final Hallow…
Harry: The 3rd Hollow is still in my prized possession.
Harry was in deep thoughts. He was breaking the promise he made to Dumbledore by retrieving this ominous powerful wand.
Harry: *in thoughts* Am I doing the right thing?
Suddenly, a glittery skull along with those pearly green serpents rose in the dark sky. This constellation of green smoke was no indifferent to Harry as he disgustedly saw back this neon ill-omen.
Ron: The Dark Mark?
Hermione: This is bad. Everyone will know that he’s back now.
Ron: Damn it. But why is he showing off so rapidly?
Shikamaru: This is bad. Kabuto is really making his move at a worrying pace.
Kakashi: Also, this is not a mere showoff. He knows that we’re here and he has just…
Naruto: …Defied us!
Harry’s gaze couldn’t be removed from the Dark mark; though behind those darkly illuminated bespectacled eyes, Harry knew one thing in his mind.
Harry: Chaos will reign once more.
