A Hero Fades Away - Tobirama: part 2
part 1 here
Kumogakure shinobi were surprised to hear that. Everyone turned back to see the technique that’s been called. It was a terrifying one. It seemed as if the forest was coming to kill them. They desperately tried to find a way to defend themselves. Kin-Gin brothers made their move:
“Banana Fan: Flame Wrap”
With the flames appeared Kinkaku was able to stop the technique. But the timing was a little late. He could see 4 of his men hanging down from the newly appeared trees. Then he realized he missed an important piece which was Tobirama. He turned back to see him. But the first thing he saw was Ginkaku, floating in the air. It was obvious from his stance that Tobirama was the one who sent him flying. Tobirama started doing hand seals. Kinkaku realized he had to do something quick. He yelled:
“Banana Fan: Earth wall”
The wall made of rocks appeared in front of Tobirama, clouding his sight of vision. Kinkaku yelled: ”Ginkaku. There is no other choice. It’s time we used it.”
After destroying the wall that’s been standing in front of him. Tobirama watched curiously. “Isn’t that, Kyuubi?”
On the other side of the battle, Hashirama sensed it as well. (What’s the meaning of this? Kyuubi should’ve been sealed inside Mito.Tobirama might be in a trouble I need to finish this qucikly.)
Kinkaku Force LT: “That was Kin-Gin brothers’ transformation. Let’s see how will you guys stand against Kyuubi’s power.”
Hashirama pushed himself not to laugh. He could sense them. Compared to real thing they meant nothing. Of course Kumogakure shinobi didn’t know about who they were talking to.
Kinkaku Force LT: “I don’t know who you are. It’s certain you are strong and you posses First Hokage’s powers. But don’t underestimate us. There are 11 of us. You won’t get past us that easily.”
Hashirama: “Let me tell you one thing. Against the “First Hokage himself” 11 of you won’t do any good.”
Kinkaku Force LT: “What? What do you mean? How cou…? No way. Could that be, Impure world resurrection?”
Hashirama: “I don’t know what it’s name. I’m here because my brother summoned me.”
Kinkaku Force was shocked. Lt knew that they had no chance of victory against someone like him. And if he were to join the battle against Kin-Gin Brothers, it would mean serious trouble. He made his decision. They were to hold First Hokage until Brothers finish their battle with the Second Hokage and come to aid them.”
Kinkaku Force LT: “We won’t let him to go back his brother up. Stall him at all costs.”
Hashirama: “So it came to this. You are underestimating my brother. He can hold his own until I’m done with you. (don’t fail me brother)”
On the other side Tobirama was really having a hard time. Taking on two of them at once was a bit too much. If it was one on one he could surely win but not against both of them.
Ginkaku charged right towards Tobirama. He went for a strong, kyuubi enchanced punch. Only to be stopped by Tobirama’s water wall technique. Kinkaku saw this as an oppurtunity and attacked from Tobirama’s left side. Tobirama sensed him but he knew he couldn’t dodge, he released the technique and used some water to cover his body in order to lessen the effect of the impact.
He was sent flying 30 meters. But water armor did it’s job. If he didn’t protect himself with that he would've been done for. Tobirama thought: “( I have to hold myself until brother arrives. This was a bad choice. He should’ve been the one to fight against these two while I fought against the others. Damn I made a poor decision back there.)”
However it wasn’t the time for that. He searched for an opening and finally caught one. Kinkaku was moving from the side, while Ginkaku was charging from the front. Same strategy again with one difference, brothers’ timing was off. He made the hand seals and yelled the name:
“Water Release: Great Waterfall Technique
Water inside the river surged and rose in front of Tobirama, taking a big global shape. It had high density. With one hand move Tobirama sent it streaming towards Ginkaku. Since Ginkaku was also charging towards the technique it was impossible to dodge. He used the tails to protect himself. But the water was too powerful. It absorbed Ginkaku and kept going for meters. Finally stopped after hitting the trees created by Hashirama. The technique was impressive. It carved a new path for the river. It was able to push back Ginkaku in his transformed form. If it wasn’t for tails he would’ve been done for. He stood up and saw that river had another path. Tobirama’s technique was really amazing. He saw his brother going on a rampage. Tobirama was having difficulties defending himself. But Kinkaku was careless after seeing his brother like that. Tobirama finally found the opening and punched Kinkaku with his water enchanced fist. It was hard to use the water as an armor. But he could still use it for little things like that. Tobirama started doing some hand seals. He was going to finish off Kinkaku. He sensed Ginkaku a little late. Tobirama had his share from Ginkaku’s punch. He was able to avoid a fatal hit. Still though impact was too powerful.He was sent flying until he crushed one of his brother’s woods. Some of his ribs were broken and he couldn’t lift his left arm anymore. He wondered “(that technique should’ve been enough to keep him out for a while. He rejoined the battle too soon.)” Then he sensed some warmth in his abdomen. He checked and saw a splinter coming from his abdomen.
Now it was their time to finish the enemy off. Both Kinkaku and Ginkaku powered up. They took their stance and made their move to finish off Second Hokage for good. But a powerful force stopped them from moving.
“Wood Release: Kakuan Entering Society With Bliss Technique”
Each brother had 10 pillars around them and they were circling the brothers. The pillars started to absorb kyuubi’s chakra and the brothers returned back to normal. Before they could realize they were in their original form, Hashirama sent Kinkaku flying with a strong kick. He then turned to Ginkaku and used:
“Wood Release: Wood Locking Wall”
Woods popped out of ground and surrounded Ginkaku from three sides. Only open side was front, and he could see Hashirama standing there. Ginkaku had nowhere to go. He yelled out: “Kinkaku!”
But he was silenced immediately. Because the wood wall surrounded him collapsed and fused with the ground, completely crushing Ginkaku.
Kinkaku watched desperately getting his brother killed. He rushed to Hashirama but was stopped by one of his techniques.
“Wood Release: Tree Bind Flourishing Burial”
A giant tree came out of ground and surrounded Kinkaku. Pressure was so high he was crushed into pieces in mere seconds.
He then turned to see his brother. Feeling sorry that it was one of his techniques that gave the fatal blow. But he didn’t make a fuss. Tobirama knew that this was his last battle even before it started.
With a cold face Hashirama started talking: “It seems you are about to die as well. Do so after you released me.”
