Unknown Tales of Namikaze Minato
"How far away are they?" asked the blonde ninja dressed in normal Konoha attire standing next to the Huyga scouting with his Byakugan.
"About 800 metres behind us....and they're gaining on us." replied the Hyuga with fear present in his voice.
"Hyuga Hideki, he is among them, isn't he?" the blond ninja asked again.
"Yes, Minato. A, the Fourth Raikage along with 5 other ninja are headed our way." The Hyuga replied.
Minato turned to his other comrades. "I'll be the decoy that allows you guys to escape. Increase your pace and get as far away as possible."
"Minato," started one of them, a female with very long red hair, "are you trying to get yourself killed?! You'll be outnumbered!"
"You worry too much Kushina. I'll be fine." he responded with a comforting smile. "Now go!" said Minato as he turned backwards, charging alone towards the incoming enemies.
"He's right Kushina," starts Hideki, "he'll be fine. Its Minato after all."
"Ok, let's go." says Kushina to the other Konoha ninja.
Elsewhere, in the same forest, the enemy Kumo ninja press forward, led by a large black skinned man with white hair. Upon seeing someone ahead, he signals with his hand and all his followers stop.
"You're looking angry as ever, A." Minato teasingly said as he began throwing a flurry of kunai around the battlefield and watched the black skinned man suddenly become coated in lightning. "I see B isn't here with you. By the way, congratulations on being promoted to Raikage. My condolences about your father's-"
A cuts Minato off, moving with incredible speed at the blonde, his fist is already in front of Minato's face much to Minato's shock. The blonde suddenly disappears into thin air. A looks down and notices a kanji writing on the tree branch where he is standing. "*Hiraishin marking!*" he thinks to himself as the blonde appears above him armed with a kunai and stabs him. The weapon fails to penetrate his lightning armor and A suddenly turns around and throws another punch but Minato dissappears once again. A leaps away from the marked tree branch and lands on another three.
"Your armor...is tough." says Minato after appearing on another tree where one of his previous kunai landed.
"Wow!" exclaimed one of A's companions."Saigo, did you see that?!"
"This is no time to just stand there watching. We've got to help." said Saigo, another Kumo nin as he begins to form seals while watching Minato and A repeat the same scuffle which ends with Minato teleporting away again. "I'll create an opening for Raikage-sama to get him off guard with my genjutsu." He is shocked when he sees one of Minato's kunai headed towards him.
"*Damn it! Make it in time!*" A thinks to himself as he rushes toward Saigo at full speed, knowing Minato plans to teleport and kill him but he ultimately fails as Minato teleports to the thrown kunai and stabs Saigo before A gets to him then the Konoha ninja teleports away again.
"You'll never be as fast as me." says Minato with a very serious expression on his face. "Though it gives me no pleasure to kill any of you but to protect Konoha, you will all die by my hand."
"Get away from Saigo's corpse! Minato must have already marked it!" A shouts to the rest of his comrades and they leap away from Saigo.
"A," starts Minato, "while you are a match for me, these ones are not. I suggest you retreat to avoid their deaths. As Kage shouldn't you consider the lives of your comrades above all else?"
"That may be the childish thinking of you Konoha ninja. However, in Kumo, we don't flee from our enemies to protect our own lives!" A charges up his lightning armor once again. "Especially since this is our opportunity to kill the Yellow Flash, the ninja who is Konoha's trump card in this war. After I kill you, our forces will crush Konoha!"
"Then you leave me no choice." responds Minato as chakra begins to spin on his palm and eventually forms a sphere.
A, in another burst of speed, attacks Minato and Minato teleports and reappears near another one of his kunai. A keeps moving forward, fleeing the battlefield.
"*He's going after Kushina and the others!*" Minato thinks to himself as he begins to chase A. Minato runs after A but the Raikage's lightning armor enhanced speed allows him put a great distance between himself and the Yellow Flash. "I can't catch up!"
"*I'll start with the Nine Tails jinchuuriki then I'll kill the others.*" A thinks to himself as he presses forward with immense speed.
Elsewhere, Kushina along with the other Konoha ninja leap from tree to tree as they continue onwards. "*Minato...I hope you're okay*" Kushina thinks to herself.
"Danger! A very large amount of chakra coming at incredible speed!" Hideki shouts to his comrades. "Its too fast for my Byakugan to properly see it."
"I'll stop it!" says Kushina as chains emerge from her back and begin to form a barrier around her and her comrades but the incoming opponent speed through its boundary before the barrier is completed. "*I couldn't make it in time.*" she thinks to herself as A apporaches and throws a punch at her.
"*Die Uzumaki Kushina!*" A thinks to himself as he prepares to kill her but suddenly Minato appears above him.
"Rasengan!" Minato smashes A in the back with a sphere in his palm sending A crashing into the ground from the treetops.
