A Coward's Way
Kid Hashirama: Currently, we could say I am your rival in playing stone skipping.
Hashirama: That was when I first met Madara Uchiha.
Sasuke: Then what. How did the fight end.
Hashirama: Ah yes, I remember that as if it was yesterday.
Hashirama: ...I'm coming, Madara!
Madara: Come Hashirama!!
Hashirama: Sage Art: Divine blow of several thousand hands!
Madara: Kyuubi! (Tailed Beast Ball)
Hashirama: If I get this one right..! Ngh!
Madara: What...? He is blocking the tailed beast ball? This is impossible!
''Light Flash ➨ Explosion''
''Smoke Clears'' - ''Hashirama's Hobi Crumbles''
Hashirama: The Susanoo armour took the hit?! It is still up.. damn.. Madara.. as expected.. you're really tough.
Madara: ''Huff.. Huff..'' Shut up.. coward. What will you do? Keep running
Hashirama: ''Sigh..'' You will never learn, will you?
Madara: You are nothing compared to me! ... Ugh...! What's happening..? aaarrrghhhhh! (Susanoo Armour vanishes)
Hashirama: He is exceeding his limits..NOW!
''Hashirama approaches the Kyuubi''
Hashirama: I will contract the seal, and release the Kyuubi from Madara's control!
Kyuubi: ''Falls asleep''
Hashirama: It worked.. that's one down..
''Hashirama approaches Madara''
Hashirama: ''Grabs Madara's collar'' ''SFX GRIP'' Will you open your god damn eyes?
Madara: Coward... I will never bow for the likes of you! ''Forms handseals quickly''
Madara: Katon: Gōkakyū no Jutsu!
Hashirama: That last attack nearly consumed all of my Nature Energy... I will have to take this hit! ngh!
Madara: My chakra.. I've used all my chakra... HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE????!!!! NOOOO!! NO! NO! NO!!!
Hashirama: ''Burning wounds are covering his body'' Madara... It's over... you lose..
Madara: I can't accept this!
Hashirama: Like I said before, I won't kill you, you are my friend. Even in the state you are in now, consumed by darkness. I will do everything to help you find the light within you again, I know it's there, I've seen it.
Madara: You are humiliating me! I can't accept this...! The likes of you.. Hashirama!
Hashirama: ''Grabs Madara's collar'' ''SFX: GRIP'' Uchiha Madara... Right now... I will give you two choices..
Hashirama: You come back to the Konohagakure with me and end your evil ways ... or ... You will never show your face again.
Madara: ''Spits blood on Hashirama's face'' ...
Hashirama: ... I see.. never have I seen someone as consumed by darkness as you are .. Madara.. I wish I could save you.. but I can't .. You are too far gone.. ''Cries''
''Hashirama leaves the Battlefield!''
Madara: How could I have lost.. I need more power... ugh..
Hashirama: Never have I ever seen Uchiha Madara again untill my death since that moment, I told the villagers I killed him, to keep them calm. I just knew Madara would never show his face again.
Sasuke: I see.. ''Flashback in Sasuke's mind - Him hanging above unconcious Naruto at The Valley of the End - ''
Tobirama: You didn't kill him?! Oh my God..! Are you kidding me brother?!
Hashirama: I just couldn't ...
Sasuke: Now.. fourth.. : ''What did really happen during the night of the Kyuubi attack on Konoha?''
