Kuroda Taishi
07-01-2009, 06:15 PM
Hey so this is my fanfic. It is set in the future. It is about a young Genin in the Hidden Petal Village and the adventures he has with his teamates Sakura Nagana and Jando Hyuga along with thier sensei Kayo Yuhi. Everything seems normal as Team 3 goes on missions and the young students work their way up the ninja ranks, however Kuroda keeps many secrets that could spell trouble for those around him. Currently Team 3 is participating in the Chunin exams in the Hidden Rock Village and some very strange things are occuring, with most of them concerning Kuroda. All three members of Team 3 were able to get into the third stage of the exam, but after Jando's loss and Sakura's forfiet Kuroda is the last one remaining.

1. Yes I know it might seem like the characters are overpowered, but the entire series is set up that way.
2. Yes these first few chapters are not that well written, but I guarentee the later ones are better.
3. Yes I realize I don't really describe characters that well. That's because I am more of a plot focused writer. However I did make a place where I am requesting artists who could draw characters for me, and so far I have 4 very talented artists that have done stuff for me and will hopefully be able to do more.

Go here: http://naruto.viz.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7182 If you are good at drawing and want to help me out.

Now for some reason Kuroda is a lot more serious and has some secret mission that no one else knows about. Is he really the hero of the story or is he the villain?

An explination of Kuroda's secret Kekkei Genkai:Warning: It is best not to read this until at least the 3rd Stage of the Chunin exams. It helps keep the plot better.Kuroda's flying thunder god technique works by his being able to instantly transfer himself to one of his "special kunai" which will have been previously marked with the required special seal or jutsu formula. Kuroda must be able to see the sealing mark in order to transfer to them. Kuroda can also mark his "associates" with a variation of the special seal during a secret rutual. He must still be able to see the mark on the body in order to transfer to it (This requires his associate to expose the skin of where the mark was placed.

Snow Country Arc

After a few more D rank missions Team 3 is sent on a C rank escort mission to the land of Snow. A freighter full of food is being shipped to the land of Snow and would like some protection from the recent elevated pirate attacks on the route. Team 3 and Team 10 are both ordered to make sure all the goods and crew arrive safely. They journey to the port where the ship is docked, and Ichimaru tries to renew his friendship with Kuroda.
Kuroda takes this time to have a serious conversation with his old friend about his life in the village, his teammates, and the future. Team 3 and Team 10 arrive at the port and board the ship. Yoshikuni and Kayo talk with the ship’s captain about what they will be facing on the mission. On the second night of the journey five pirate ships appear and attack the freighter. Team 3 and Team 10 are able to repel most of the pirates, but then the leaders come aboard.
Three missing ninja from the Village Hidden Among the Snow are in control of the pirates. They are angry that their attack was being stopped and wanted to know why. They are surprised when they learn that the freighter has hired Petal Ninja to protect it. The leader Taiki a Jonin level ninja attacks the Genin while his subordinates, Funimo a Chunin and Yukiko a Genin engage Yoshikuni and Kayo. Taiki overwhelms Yui, Kenta, and Jando. Then he decides to retreat because Funimo and Yukiko were loosing. While recovering from the Snow ninja attack everyone starts questioning why they are attacking a shipment meant for their own country. Meanwhile Taiki is furious that he was forced to retreat by the Petal Ninja.
It is revealed that Yukiko is an orphan who was taken in by Taiki and feels she has to do his bidding even if she does not agree with it. A few more days pass and the freighter is finally repaired and almost halfway to the country of snow. Yui, Kenta, and Jando are not fully healed, so everyone else has to cover for them. This time Taiki attacks during daylight, and comes out directly to engage the Petal ninja. Taiki and Yukiko take on the Jonins, while Funimo attacks Ichimaru, Kuroda, and Sakura.
“Well, well this is a surprise. I didn’t think they would hire so many ninja to defend a simple shipment of food,” says Taiki. “I think it’s obvious that this shipment of food isn’t exactly little,” retorts Kayo, “But I’m sure you already knew that didn’t you?” Taiki laughs, “Think you got me pegged, do you Petal Ninja?” “Actually we were wondering why a Snow Ninja would be attacking ships that are delivering goods to his own country,” says Yoshikuni. “Ah, if it isn’t Hanabira’s Brown Cobra. I didn’t realize such a famous ninja would be here,” says Taiki. “You seem to have me at a disadvantage, because I don’t exactly recognize you,” replies Yoshikuni. “It seems my former village hasn’t let out the news that I no longer reside with them. No matter, you don’t need to know my name,” replies Taiki. “So you’re a missing ninja then?” asks Kayo. “Yes, and now that I know who you are it will be a good chance for me to test my skills against one of the best.”
“I don’t go around looking for fights, but if you’re going to continue attacking these freighters then I’m going to have to stop you,” says Yoshikuni. Taiki laughs, “Well then let’s get to it,” and then he and Yukiko fling some shuriken at them both. They both dodge, and Yoshikuni counters with his Striking Shadow Snakes. Four snakes are launched out of his left sleeve and wrap themselves around Taiki, while four snakes from his right sleeve capture Yukiko. Kayo moves in close and attempts to use a Genjutsu on him. Before she can Taiki’s body melts into a pool of water. “Hmm, a Water Clone,” comments Kayo, “When did he do that?” “Kayo behind you,” yells Yoshikuni as Taiki rises up from the water behind Kayo with an ice spear in his hands. As Yoshikuni moves to help Kayo he momentarily forgets about Yukiko, allowing her to use her Ice Style: Swallow Blizzard to hurl sharp icicles at him.
Meanwhile Ichimaru has been attempting to capture Funimo with his Shadow Paralyses Jutsu. “Man this guy is tough,” comments Ichimaru to Kuroda and Sakura, “We need to think of a plan.” “You little kids are annoying,” says Funimo as he appears in front of them and lands kicks to there abdomens, knocking them a few feet away. “I’ll teach you what a real ninja can do,” he says.
Funimo knocks out Ichimaru with his Instant Freeze Illusion and then goes after Sakura. Sakura is caught in a trap and then Funimo launches a dead on Swallow Blizzard right at her. This triggers her seal and Kuroda is instantly transported in front of the attack. He easily deflects the attack with a kunai which catches Funimo off guard. Kuroda throws his special kunai at Funimo, and hits him with his Flying Thunder God Technique. Taiki sees this and thinks, “So that one was holding back. I can’t fight all of them at once, so I’ll have to get rid of them one by one. He seems to have a connection with that girl, so ill start with her.”
Taiki makes a Water Clone to help deal with Yoshikuni and Kayo, as he goes after Sakura. “Sakura watch out!” screams Kayo as she tries to make her way to Sakura, but is blocked by Yukiko. Sakura is helpless as she is attacked by Taiki. After knocking her unconscious he throws her into the freezing cold ocean. After easily knocking Funimo unconscious with Taijutsu, Kuroda dives in the water after Sakura.
Yoshikuni lands a punch into Yukiko’s face sending her flying, but Taiki is able to catch her before she falls into the ocean. He looks over to see Kayo slash his clone across the chest with a kunai causing it to loose its form. “It looks like you’ve won this time Petal Ninja, but I’ll be back, and you’ll be down two more ninja,” says Taiki as he picks up Funimo and runs across the top of the water back to a waiting pirate ship.
Ichimaru wakes up and wants to search for Kuroda and Sakura, but Yoshikuni tells him that sometimes ninja loose the ones closest to them, but they have to keep going and complete the mission. Kuroda is able to reach Sakura under the water, but they are caught in the currents and flung deep underwater. Kuroda is able to find a cave inside an iceberg and get Sakura out of the freezing water.
“Good thing I prepared this fire scroll” he says as he summons the flames to keep Sakura warm. He also takes out a heavy coat that he packed and changes Sakura out of her wet clothes, hanging them up to dry. Slowly Kuroda is able to lift the fever that Sakura gets. Meanwhile he leaves a shadow clone to watch over her as he explores the cavern inside the iceberg.
While wandering around looking for an alternate exit he stumbles upon two summoning scrolls hidden behind a series of puzzles and traps. After retrieving the scrolls and returning to Sakura, she is finally able to wake up. “What…what happened? Where are we?” she asks weakly. “Don’t talk, I will explain later, but you need to rest,” says Kuroda, “Here I made some soup, you should eat.”
While waiting for her to recover Kuroda decides to test out the new scrolls he found. So he rolls them out and signs both of the scrolls with his blood and then summons the sacred animals. The first one is a human size mammoth that yawns, “It’s been a long time since I was summoned. I’m called Uthuloxo, who are you?” “I’m Kuroda,” he answers. The mammoth yawns again, “You must be a very skilled ninja to have found my scroll. It was hidden down here a long time ago.” Kuroda uses a second summoning Jutsu for the other scroll and an elephant appears, “Hey, Uthuloxo long time no see. So someone found the scrolls eh?” “Yeah that’s him right behind you Dantoloxo,” says Uthuloxo.
“You? But your only a kid?” says Dantoloxo. “Appearances can be deceiving,” replies Kuroda, “So tell me why exactly did I find your scrolls down in some ice cave under the sea?” “It was those damn Cloud Ninja,” explains Uthuloxo, “They sealed us down here so the Village Hidden Among the Snow wouldn’t be able to use us, and they wouldn’t be able to become a larger power among the villages.” “I see, so you are very strong then?” asks Kuroda. “Just give me someone to fight, and I’ll show you how good I am,” says Dantoloxo.
Yukiko suddenly appears in the cave, “So you were able to get the scrolls out? Taiki and Funimo have been trying to get them for a while now.” “You, how did you get here?” asks Kuroda. “Is she an enemy?” asks Dantoloxo. “Yes, but I can handle her on my own. You two may go,” says Kuroda. “Well then, until you need us,” says Uthuloxo. Two clouds of smoke appear as Uthuloxo and Dantoloxo disappear.
“This cave is in the middle of a giant iceberg, our base is also inside,” explains Yukiko. “I see, but you’re an enemy, why are you not attacking me?” asks Kuroda. “I have a question to ask. Why did you risk your life to save that girl?” she asks. Kuroda explains, “I saved her because she is important to me. She is going to help me accomplish my dreams. I would do anything to protect her.” Yukiko comments, “Taiki would never do anything like that for me. I don’t believe in his dreams.” “Then why are you with him?” asks Kuroda.
“My parents died when I was young. He found me and took me in,” she explains. “So you feel that you have to serve him because he saved you?” he inquires. “Yes,” she responds. “It’s understandable. So tell me, what is he really after? Why is he attacking shipments heading towards the Land of Snow?” he asks. She tells him, “Taiki and Funimo were banished from the Village Hidden Among the Snow. There only goal is to get revenge on the village, so they are gathering supplies and people for an attack.”
“How foolish, he is going about it in the wrong manner,” mumbles Kuroda, “So let me ask you this, what would you do if they were no longer living?” “I don’t know,” she replies. Kuroda tells Yukiko, “I wasn’t planning on it, but I will kill Taiki and Funimo if you will pledge your life to help me accomplish my dreams.” “And what is your dream?” asks Yukiko. “I can only tell you that after you pledge your life,” he responds, “However I can promise you that if you do follow me I would sacrifice my life for yours without hesitation, if you were ever faced with death.” “Those eyes of yours, I can tell your not lying, you meant every word you spoke,” she replies. “So what is your decision?” he asks.
Yukiko agrees and signs one of Kuroda’s blood contracts. She goes through his marking ritual. They wait a few more hours until Sakura has recovered and then she leads them to an above ground exit from the cave. Yukiko takes them to the hiding spot that Taiki and the pirates use, but all ten ships are gone. “It looks like they left for the next attack already,” comments Kuroda, “Sakura and I will go after them, but you have a different mission.” “You don’t want me to come?” Yukiko asks. “No it would ruin my cover, plus I have a more important mission for you. I need you to seek out the strongest female shinobi in the Snow country, evaluate their skills and compile a list for me” explains Kuroda as he gives her a letter, “After you feel you have found all of them send this letter to the Hidden Petal Village and I will come.”
Meanwhile the Freighter is only a few miles away from the Snow Country, and Jando, Yui, and Kenta are healthy again. Ichimaru is depressed that Kuroda threw his life away and does not understand why he would do that for someone he barely knew. Taiki and Funimo attack a third time with ten ships full of pirates. The Genin take on the pirates while the Jonin handle the enemy ninja. Funimo tries to use his Instant Freeze Illusion on Kayo, but she is not affected by the Genjutsu attack. The Genin manage to work together to defeat a majority of the pirates, and they retreat without orders from Taiki. He gets angry and uses his most powerful Jutsu. He summons a giant whale made of ice. He sends his Ice Whale Jutsu to destroy all the pirate ships. Yoshikuni catches Funimo with his Striking Shadow Snakes and then Yui uses her Mind Transfer Jutsu to take control of his body.
Taiki returns his attention to the Petal shinobi and is able to defeat everyone with his Ice Whale and Ice Weapons Jutsus. Kuroda and Sakura arrive on the scene. Kuroda sees that everyone is unconscious and he can use his true abilities. Taiki is furious that they somehow survived and uses his Ice Whale Jutsu; Kuroda throws his special kunai along the sides of the Ice Whale. Then he uses his full Flying Thunder God Technique to appear right to the side of Taiki and stab him in the heart.
Ichimaru awakens first and is stunned to see Kuroda alive, and a dead Taiki. He sees that Funimo is only unconscious and wants to take him as a prisoner. Kuroda stabs Funimo in the heart against his friend’s wishes. When asked why Kuroda replies that people that do not follow their hearts do not deserve to live, referring to Funimo’s goal of revenge on the snow country when he was the wrong doer. The freighter finally arrives in the snow country, and the Village Hidden Among the Snow is relived to receive the corpses of Taiki and Funimo. The journey home is a lot shorter, but Team 10 starts questioning about how Kuroda and Sakura survived, and what happened to the female Snow ninja. Kuroda lies and says that Yukiko decided to save them, then helped kill Taiki, and then ran away.


Training in the Valley Arc

After arriving back in the Hidden Petal village Kuroda reflects on the mission and decides that it would be good to know some healing Ninjutsu. So at nights he secretly has Emi the nurse from the village hospital teach him some basic healing techniques for cuts and bruises. He is able to effectively heal all the small cuts he practices on, but not a lot more than that. After the dangerous mission that Team 3 was just on the Koukage decides that they need some more D rank missions to improve their teamwork. This time they are sent to the Valley Country to take care of the King’s daughter while he goes to some diplomatic meetings with the neighboring Forest Country.
On the way there Kuroda starts to help Sakura out with her ninja skills. He decides to teach Sakura the Shadow Clone Jutsu stating that she needed some more offensive moves. Jando gets jealous and tries to learn the Jutsu on his own. Kayo tries to get Kuroda to talk about what really happened on the Snow Country mission, and he says that he will reveal the happenings to her, but it is not the right time. Team 3 arrives in the Valley country and meets Princess Kyoko who is only a few months younger than Sakura. She is instantly fascinated with Kuroda because of his looks and his serious yet relaxed personality. She is also surprised by his knowledge of formal manors thinking ninja were all ruffians. They quickly become friends, and she stays near him a majority of the time. Jando gets jealous again and tries to get Kyoko to pay attention to him, but she ignores him. Sakura focuses on perfecting her new Shadow Clone Jutsu so she doesn’t disappoint Kuroda. Kayo tries to figure out Kuroda and what his true intentions are. She watches him closely, but he mostly just trains with Sakura, or entertains Kyoko.
Kuroda decides that having the future leader of a nation on his side would be very useful in completing his plan, so he convinces Kyoko to sign one of his blood contracts and performs the seal ritual on her. On the last day of the mission Sakura is able to create one fully functional Shadow Clone, Jando has not gotten any better, and Kayo has not learned anything from watching Kuroda. The King returns to find his daughter in perfect health and in an unusually gleeful state. He is very pleased and rewards Team 3 handsomely. After arriving home the Koukage decides to keep Team 3 on D rank missions for a while longer. After one uneventful day in the village Kuroda is summoned all the way to the Snow Country to defend Yukiko.
Kuroda easily kills a rain ninja that was attacking her, and decides to keep the headband. Kuroda decides to have Yukiko teach him the Ice Weapons Jutsu because it is a rather unique jutsu allowing for great flexibility in tactics. He is able to master the basics in two days. Yukiko has made little progress on her mission and Kuroda decides to have her continue to seek out the strong ninja. He uses his Flying Thunder God Technique to go all the way back to the Hidden Petal village in one day. Apparently no one but Sakura noticed he was gone for three days, and she did not tell anyone.


Attack of the Smoke Arc

Finally Team 3 is given a third C rank mission. This time they must go and pick up a valuable sculpture from a master sculptor and bring it back to its buyer in the village. The buyer decides that he does not need to go with them, because they will move faster without him slowing them down. Team 3 arrives in the master sculptor’s village in a few short days with no problems. Kayo talks with the sculptor and learns that someone has been trying to steal the sculpture.
In the morning Team 3 wakes up surprised to see a heavy mist in the village, which is very unusual for this time of year. While trying to leave the village they are attacked by unknown enemies. They are able to make it out of the village and to a lakefront where they rest awhile.
Kaneo and Bosch of the Smoke Village appear as Team 3 escapes the village. Bosch says to Kaneo, “Can I go after them alone? I don’t think they will be much of a problem, even if I am only a Chunin.” “Sure, go ahead and have fun.” Bosch heads after them and finds them the next day by the lake and confronts the group.
When Kayo does not give him the sculpture, Bosch attacks them with his Water Vapor Reflection Jutsu. At first everyone is confused and accidentally they attack each other. Then Kuroda sees through the Jutsu and is able to disrupt it. Jando is able use his gentle fist Taijutsu on Bosch, and force him to retreat.
While Jando is celebrating his victory Kayo warns her students, “More ninja will come to get the sculpture, be on guard all of you.” The next day Team 3 runs into some bandits, but they are able to defeat them easily using teamwork.
Meanwhile Bosch returns to his hide out and reports to his superior Kaneo. “I’m sorry I failed. I underestimated their strength.” Kaneo laughs, “I knew you would be defeated, but it always better to learn from experience.” “So what is the plan?” asks Bosch. Kaneo explains, “I already started working on it. Im going to lure them into this cave, and we will take them down one by one. Here is the trap setups, finish them up while I go and get our guests.”
Kaneo finds Team 3 by the lake and attacks without warning using his Poison Fog. Kayo reacts quickly and disperses the fog before it can affect the team. Then Kaneo uses his Smog Choking Technique to capture Sakura. He drags her into the forest and forces the others to follow.
They track him to a cave entrance and decide to enter in order to save Sakura. Inside the cave Kaneo gives an unconscious Sakura to Bosch. Jando sees Bosch and feeling confident he goes after him without thinking. The cave collapses behind Jando, so Kayo and Kuroda cannot follow; instead they are confronted by Kaneo. Kaneo uses his Hidden Mist Technique to separate Kayo and Kuroda. Kaneo attacks Kuroda with his Deadly Poison Death Illusion, and leaves to defeat Kayo.
Meanwhile Jando has followed Bosch into a large cavern. Bosch starts attacking with his Poison Fog, but Jando is able to avoid the attacks. In the cave next door Kaneo is able to corner Kayo and seal all the exits. Kaneo tries to use his Deadly Poison Death Illusion on her, but she counters with some of her own Genjutsu.
Meanwhile Kuroda manages to release Kaneo’s Jutsu and wanders around trying to find the others. Sakura wakes up and joins Jando in the battle against Bosch. Bosch manages to catch Sakura off guard with a lucky kunai throw, but her seal is triggered, and Kuroda is summoned to save her. Confused for a moment Bosch decides to cast his Fog Clone Jutsu. In response Kuroda and Sakura each use their Shadow Clone Jutsu’s. Jando tries to use his Byakugan to help out, but it does not work. Kuroda and Sakura attack the Fog Clones, but they are not destroyed when hit.
Kuroda starts to think it might be a Genjutsu when he is summoned to the aid of Kayo. Kayo is in bad shape with some deep wounds, she is confused when she sees Kuroda appear in front of her. Kayo tells him, “My Genjutsu was not effective against him, be careful.” Kaneo is angry and yells, “I don’t know how you escaped my Jutsu, but if you were smart you would have run away.” Kuroda decides to use his Elephant Summoning Jutsu and Dantoloxo appears. Kuroda tells Dantoloxo, “I don’t know how long I’m going to be here, you might have to fight by yourself for a while.” Dantoloxo seems eager, “That’s fine with me; I haven’t been in a fight in a long time, so I need to see if my abilities are still as good as they used to be.”
Kuroda starts a combination attack, but is thrown back by Kaneo’s Smog Choking Technique. When he hits the wall a crack appears and he is able to see Jando on the other side. Kuroda starts to mount another attack when he is summoned to Sakura’s aid once again.
Jando and Sakura are both beat up, but Jando’s Byakugan has started working. Jando figures out that the real Bosch is hiding underground and attacks when they are distracted by the clones. Kuroda makes a few clones, and transforms all but one into Bosch. Then the original goes underground using the Headhunter Technique. When Bosch surfaces to attack the clone, Kuroda catches him from underground, and then his transformed clones use a combo attack and send Bosch through the wall and into the cavern where Kayo and Kaneo are. Kuroda, Jando, and Sakura arrive to see the Dantoloxo and Kaneo fighting.
Kaneo is furious that Bosch was defeated and uses his own Fog Clone Jutsu. Kuroda uses the same strategy to catch Kaneo, and then Dantoloxo uses a water attack to kill Kaneo. Exhausted Jando falls to sleep. Kuroda decides to test his healing abilities and heals the more severe wounds on everyone, but leaves Kayo unable to walk as punishment for almost getting the other two killed.
Kuroda explains to Kayo and Sakura about how the seal works. Kuroda orders Kayo and Sakura not to tell anyone about his healing abilities. After a day of rest Team 3 starts back towards the village, with Kuroda carrying Kayo on his back all the way to the Hanabira Medical Facility.
Sakura and Jando hand over the sculpture and give a mission report to the Koukage. All members of Team 3 have to stay in the hospital to heal from the recent mission. Kuroda recovers the fastest and is released before the others. Kuroda is summoned to the Koukage’s office where she informs him, “The Chunin exams are coming up and I think you proved on your last mission that you have the ability. I want you to participate.” Kuroda surprises her by his knowledge by saying, “I am aware that the first stages of the exam require a team, and I feel that my team is not ready yet.”
Just then Team 15 enters to tell the Koukage that they do not feel they are ready for the Chunin exams either. This time Kuroda seems surprised saying, “I would think that a team like yours with all that talent would be itching to move up to Chunin level.” Rame Tsu and Naoko comment, “Our sensei is more concerned with being a pervert. He hasn’t really taught us anything that we could not have figured out on our own.” The 8th Koukage decides, “Fine if none of you are going to participate then I will give you a mission instead, and since Kuroda’s teammates are still in the hospital, he will join you on the mission.” As Kuroda and Team 15 exit the Koukage’s office, Team 10 enters to tell her that they also don’t want to enter the Chunin exams either.


Tea Country Arc

The next day Kuroda and Team 15 set out on the mission. The objective is to track down a man with an extremely large gambling debt who seems to be able to elude normal debt collectors. They arrive in the Tea Country and meet with the leader of the Wasabi Clan. They learn that the gambler seems to have ninja like abilities, can disguise himself, and disappear in an instant. However the gambler has an extremely recognizable way of playing, so they have figured out a way to find him. The plan is for Team 15 to wait until a message comes in that the gambler is at one of the betting houses. Then they will immediately go and capture him. Nothing happens in the first few days, and everyone starts to get restless.
Tousen decides that he will pass the time by trying his luck in a casino, but no one else can come, because they are too young. Rame Tsu and Naoko speculate, “I bet he’s not even going gamble. He is probably going to a brothel, because he is a pervert!” Kuroda takes this opportunity to explore the region looking for possible people he can use in his plans. Shun becomes suspicious of Kuroda and follows him; however Kuroda quickly becomes aware of his tail, but is not really concerned. After most of the day is passed Kuroda is disappointed he did not find anyone. He vanishes from Shun’s view and appears behind him asking if he is ready to go back. Shun is stunned and ponders how and when Kuroda became aware of him.
When they arrive Rame Tsu and Naoko immediately start questioning and telling off the two males. In the middle of Naoko screaming at Kuroda, about running off without telling anyone where he was going, a messenger comes in and informs the Wasabi leader that the gambler is at one of the gambling dens. Kuroda suggests that they should wait until Tousen returns, but Rame Tsu argues that it might be a long time before they get another chance to catch the guy. A vote is taken, and Kuroda reluctantly agrees to go without Tousen. The messenger gives them directions to the gambling den and they head off.
When they arrive they are greeted by an eccentric Tousen who loudly tells them that he has been winning tons off some sucker. Then he asks them why they are there, because they are supposed to be waiting for the gambler to show up. With that a man throws a smoke bomb and crashes through a window. The Genin take off after the gambler, leaving Tousen looking confused. After realizing that he will not receive any of the money he just won, he figures out that the sucker was the guy they were looking for and he takes off after them.
The gambler leads them to the ocean where they run into an extremely dense mist. Kuroda instantly recognizes it as the Hidden Mist Technique, and speculates to the others that they are dealing with a ninja. Tousen arrives and uses his Air Bullet Jutsu to disperse portions of the mist. The gambler is revealed, and Tousen tries to use his Syrup Capture Field to trap him, but it turns out to be a Water Clone. Shun sees the gambler sneak into a cave, so they all follow. Kuroda advises them not to split up, because it might be a trick to split them up and make them easier targets.
Team 15 finally corners the gambler in a large cavern. The gambler is surrounded by smoke, and then a young woman appears. Tousen immediately recognizes her as Kasumi Momochi a Jonin from the Village Hidden in the Mist. She does not recognize him, and he sulks. Rame Tsu and Naoko make comments on how much of a failure is. Tousen warns them that Kasumi may look young, but she is a child prodigy and extremely dangerous. Kasumi says that now that her cover is blown, she has to kill them before she can return to her village. Tousen says, “All right all of you stand back, I am going to take her on by my….” But both Shun and Kuroda create Shadow Clones and start to attack her.
Kasumi effortlessly defeats the clones, and then captures Shun in a Water Prison. Then she creates a Water Clone with one hand and it starts to attack them. Naoko uses her Manipulating Attack Blades to try and free Shun, but the Water Clone deflects them all. Tousen takes the chance to launch an Air Bullet attack at the real Kasumi. She is forced to release the Water Prison. Kasumi looks like she is about to start some hand signs, when another clone of hers appears and knocks out Kuroda. Everyone including the real Kasumi is stunned. Then four more clones appear and knock Team 15 unconscious.
Now Kasumi is shocked and starts to try and figure out where the clones came from. Kuroda stands up and gives orders to the clones to take Team 15’s bodies outside; rough them up a bit, and make sure they stay unconscious until he comes out. Kasumi stares at Kuroda and asks him how he was able to make the clones and transform them without anyone knowing, and why he attacked his own team. Kuroda comments, “Why would I tell the secrets of my Jutsu to you? I will however say that I took out my own team because he wanted to be alone with you.” Kasumi starts laughing hysterically and says, “You are a fool for wanting to fight an advance Jonin like me by yourself. There is no way you can win with all those weak attacks you used earlier. I barely even had to try.” Kuroda retorts, “I was only using a tenth of my power to attack earlier.”
Kuroda throws a few kunai at her and then he disappears form view. Kasumi dodges the knives, and then is attacked with a kick from behind by Kuroda. She blocks the attack and throws Kuroda against the ground saying that his speed was impressive for a Genin, but not good enough. As the dust clears Kuroda’s body turns into smoke and the original Kuroda appears above Kasumi and lands a powerful kick to the head. Her body melts into a pool of water. Then she materializes next to him and traps him in a Water Prison Jutsu.
She comments, “Good strategy, but you are not the only one who can create a clone within only a few seconds.” A puff of smoke appears inside the Water Prison. Kasumi releases the Jutsu with an angry look on her face. She yells, “I’m getting pissed off and now I’m not going hold back anymore. I will use some of my more advanced Jutsu to kill you quickly.”
Five clones materialize and charge at her. She takes out a kunai and tears them to shreds. When one of the clones does not disappear, she uses some hand signs and shoots her Rapid Crasher straight at Kuroda. He is able to get most of his body out of the way, but his left arm is severely injured. Kuroda makes a Shadow clone and it starts to use the Mystical Palm Technique to heal him. Kasumi gets even angrier and fires off another Rapid Crasher at him. This time he instantly transports right behind her and slashes her back with a kunai. She falls to the ground screaming in pain. He lands and begins to heal his arm again.
After a while Kasumi struggles to sit up and says, “Impossible, no one can move that fast. Besides, you were only half as fast as I was, so there is no way you should be able to do that.” Kuroda replies, “I already told you I was only using a tenth of my power. As a Jonin you should know to never underestimate an opponent that you know nothing about.” Kuroda looks satisfied with the state of his arm, even though it is not fully healed, and walks toward Kasumi. He starts saying, “This battle is over, and now I need to hurry and fulfill my objective before the others wake up.” Kasumi struggles to her feet looking even angrier and charges at him. He easily dodges her and this time lands a huge slash across her chest with the kunai. She falls to the ground.
Kuroda looks at her and says, “I’m impressed. You are indeed a highly skilled ninja; you shouldn’t even be able to walk right now. I really don’t want to kill you.” He offers to spare her life in exchange for her serving him. She spits in his face and then jumps up and away across the room. She immediately starts a long chain of hand signs. Kuroda says, “You just keep surprising me. To think that you still have enough chakra to do what I assume is an extremely advanced Jutsu.” Kasumi comments, “Prepare yourself, This Jutsu is going to send you straight to hell,” and then she finishes the hand signs and attacks him with her Water Dragon Jutsu.
A huge river of water surges toward Kuroda, and he has no way to escape it. He is tossed around inside the water and slammed against the cave wall. Kasumi throws some kunai at Kuroda, but his body goes up in smoke. She falls down exhausted, and curses him and his Clone Jutsu. Kuroda appears with a kunai knife to Kasumi’s throat, and restates his offer of sparing her life in exchange for her servitude.
Kasumi thinks to herself, “I will probably be executed if I go back to the village and tell them I failed this mission, so I might as well agree to the terms.” She tells Kuroda, “I accept your offer.” Kuroda takes out a scroll and tells Kasumi, “Sign your name in blood to bind the agreement.” She does. Then Kuroda has Kasumi take off her clothes. She hesitates and a surging pain goes through her body. Kuroda tells her, “This pain will happen every time you don’t do as I ask. It is not fatal, but it hurts a lot.”
She takes her clothes off. He takes out a kunai and carves a symbol similar to an exploding tag into her flesh. Then he makes a few hand signs and pours some of his chakra into the mark. After a minute the mark dims and soon is no longer visible. Kuroda tells her to tell no one about what he just did, and to put her clothes back on. Kuroda then starts to heal the wound on Kasumi’s back.
He tells her, “I’m only going to heal this one wound. I won’t heal any of the other ones, because you need to look like you was just in a battle. You will return to the Village Hidden in the Mist and report everything up until I took out my teammates. Instead you will lie and say that a mysterious and powerful ninja attacked all of us and somehow you were able to get away and headed back towards the village.” Kasumi rejects the idea, “If I go back to my village I will be executed for failing the mission.” Kuroda ignores her and says, “They wouldn’t kill you because of that.” She tries to object, but he cuts her off, “You must do as I order unless you wish for that pain to return.” Kasumi gives up remembering the horrible pain, instead she asks, “What are you going to tell your village?” He responds, “Oh I’m just going to pretend that I was knocked out like the rest, and woke up outside the cave with her gone.”
They walk outside the cave and head over by the others. He tells her that as soon as she has made him unconscious to leave. She knocks him out.
When he wakes up two days later, the others are all standing around him. Naoko comments, “Jeez, you should have been the first one up, because you were attacked first.” Kuroda asks, “What happened, and how did I get back to the Wasabi mansion?” Shun tells him, “When I woke up we were all outside the cave and that Mist ninja was no where to be seen. I waited until Tousen was awake and we decided to come back to the mansion.” Tousen says, “We are going to head back to the village in the morning and reporting this to the Koukage.”


Murder in the Mist Arc

Meanwhile Kasumi arrives at the entrance where she is met by some guards. “What the hell happened to you?” one of them asks. “It’s none of your business,” she says, “Just tell them I am back” “Yes ma’m!” they salute, and then one of them goes to get someone while she waits. A young boy appears from nowhere. He says, “You back already sis, always looking to finish as soon as possible, but you don’t look to good. Did you underestimate your opponent again?” She replies, “Shut up Desh. You should not concern yourself with my missions unless you are included in them.” The guard returns and says, “Come with me Lady Kasumi.” He sees Desh and tells him, “The Mizukage was looking for you, he wants to talk to you right away, and he isn’t in a patient mood.” “Damn,” says Desh, “Well see you later sis.” He reluctantly dashes off. The guard leads Kasumi through a series of buildings and trees and into an underground tunnel and up to a door. She enters and he returns to his post.
Team 15 is about halfway home when they decide to take a short break. They stop by a spring for a rest. “I am going to look for some rare berries I heard were around here,” says Kuroda as he walks off. “Just don’t go too far,” says Yoshikuni. Kuroda wanders around looking for the rare berries, when he is suddenly transported away. When Team 15 realizes he is gone they begin to look for him. After an hour they decide to give up and head back towards the village.
When Kasumi closes the doors she sees five outlines of men, but can’t see their faces. She knows they are some of the highest ranking Jonin who are under direct orders from the Mizukage. One of them speaks, “Kasumi Momochi, why did you abandon your mission? You were supposed to be there for two more months.” Another one questions, “And why are you so badly hurt. You are one of the top young Jonin in our village.” A third demands, “Answer us now! Explain yourself or face the punishment!” One of the final two yells, “All of you shut up! How is she supposed to talk with you badgering her? Now speak Kasumi!”
She recounts, “I was discovered by a team from the Hidden Petal Village. I lured them into a cave so I could take them out without anyone seeing. Everything was going fine; I was in the middle of fighting them when suddenly a figure appeared. This… mysterious ninja was so fast that I could barely see what happened. He attacked both me and the petal ninja. When I woke up I was outside of the cave in this condition and the petal ninja and the mysterious ninja were nowhere to be seen. I thought it was best to return here and report what happened.”
One of the men slaps her across the face, “You lying !” She falls to the ground clutching her face and retorts, “I would not lie to you! My only purpose is to serve you! I am telling the truth!” They talk amongst themselves whispering and debating. They determine that since she failed such an important mission and revealed herself to an enemy village that she would be killed and they would claim she was a rogue ninja not acting on their orders. The silent one pulls out a long sword aims it at her chest and stabs at her heart.
Kuroda materializes and blocks the attack. The man yells, “Who the hell are you?” He sees the petal symbol on Kuroda’s headband and yells out, “She is a traitor! Kill them both!” Kuroda takes out forty of his special kunai and throws them all over the room. He uses his Flying Thunder God Technique, flashing around the dark room and killing all five men before they could even try and defend themselves. Kasumi stares in amazement realizing, “Is that his real power? If he had used that against me he could have defeated me easily with that technique. Was he only testing my abilities when we fought?”
Kuroda takes off his headband and stores it in a pocket. Then he walks over to one of the corpses and takes the mist headband and puts it on. He tells Kasumi, “I guess you weren’t kidding when you said they would kill you. I will remember to believe you next time. However they should believe you this time, so tell them that the mysterious ninja from earlier followed you back and assassinated everyone but left you alive for some reason.” “Yes, I will,” she replies. Then he stabs her in a particularly painful spot and she lets out an excruciating scream heard throughout the village. Guards from all over come running in the direction of the scream.
He opens the door and uses his Flying Thunder God Technique to escape the village and head back to his own. He arrives just outside of the gate about 12 hours later. He creates a Shadow Clone and has it put some serious wounds and gashes in him. He sees Team 15 approaching and stumbles out onto the road falling down to the ground.


Kuroda’s Suspension Arc

When Kuroda wakes up he is in the Hanabira hospital. The nurse sees him and summons the Koukage. She comes in and greets him, “Hello Kuroda, it is good to see you awake.” “Lady Koukage, why are you here?” asks Kuroda. “Do you know where you are?” she inquires. “I assume that Yoshikuni and the others brought me inside the village,” he replies, “and judging by the room I assume I am in the hospital.” “Good the doctors thought you might have had a concussion,” she replies. “But still why are you here Lady Koukage?” he asks. “When someone disappears from a mission and then shows up in front of the village it is a matter that a high ranking person needs to investigate. And considering the report I got from Yoshikuni I thought it was necessary I investigated this matter personally.”
“So he told you what happened,” comments Kuroda. “Yes, but I would like to hear your version,” she says, “And please start at the point where you tracked the mist ninja called Kasumi into the cave and engaged her in combat.” nicely. He explains, “I anticipated that Shun was going to attack her alone, so I thought I would give him a hand. Obviously we failed and Shun was trapped in her water jutsu. After Tousen was able to free Shun, I was going to try another attack, when Kasumi started to perform hand signs. Suddenly, as if Kasumi did not mean to do it, a clone attacked me from behind and knocked me unconscious. I woke up back in the Wasabi mansion.” “That is consistent with what the others said, but what about your arm? Yoshikuni said it was injured when they all woke up and found you,” she says.
“I’m not sure,” he says, “I just woke up like that.” The Koukage does not seem to believe him, but she moves on, “So what happened to you on the way back to the village? Where did you disappear to?” Kuroda explains, “We stopped to take a break, and I remembered reading about some rare berries that were in the area, so I went to look for them. While I was searching someone came out of nowhere and attacked me. I tried to get to the others, but could not find them. I tried to fight the enemy, but he was too fast for me, I could barely even see his movements. So I did the only thing I could think of which was run. Somehow I was able to make it to the village gates where I collapsed. I’m not sure why my attacker didn’t follow me.” The Koukage again does not believe him, but does not press the matter. “Very well, thank you for explaining that to me,” she says getting up and walking to the door, “please get some rest.”
She leaves the room and meets with a fully healed Kayo in the hallway “So how is he?” asks Kayo. “He seems fine both physically and mentally,” says the Koukage, “However I believe he is lying to me for some reason. Please use your Mind Interrogation Technique to find out what really happened.” “Yes lady Koukage,” says Kayo. Kayo enters the room and immediately does the Jutsu before Kuroda can say anything.
Inside Kuroda’s mind Kayo finds the wall, and Kuroda appears. She tells him, “The Koukage ordered me to find out what really happened.” Kuroda replies, “I was summoned to help one of my other associates.” “You mean slaves,” Kayo snaps. “Is that what you really think?” Kuroda says. “Do you not see that this is a mutual relationship? I have already proven that I will risk my life to save yours, and all I ask is that when I need you to, you follow my orders and wishes so I can accomplish my dreams.” “And the majority of your orders have been to keep your secrets about the betrayal of the village, and to help you in enslaving others to my own fate,” replies Kayo.
“It is only your opinion that I am betraying the village, because you do not know the full extent of my plans,” says Kuroda. “Plans that you swore you would tell me,” snaps Kayo. “And when the time is right you will know them, but I cannot risk you meddling,” replies Kuroda. “As for my other associates they have all agreed to my terms of their own free will in return for something that they wanted from me. Now, you will tell the Koukage that my memories have been tampered with and the originals cannot be recovered.” Kayo returns from Kuroda’s mind, walks outside and gives the Koukage the message.
The Koukage comes back in the room and informs, “I have decided that you will be suspended from all further missions and you are not allowed to leave the village until I say so.” “What? Why?” he protests. The 8th Koukage explains, “It is for your own protection and for the village’s protection. You cannot fully remember what happened and some of your memories have been tampered with. You may have given up some information about the village, or been put under a Jutsu. Also the person who attacked you might be waiting and will try to kill you the next time you go on a mission. It is safest for you lay low for a while.”
Kuroda is restricted to the village after he gets out of the hospital. He is allowed to go on the D-rank missions that are inside of the village. For any ones outside either Shun, Ichimaru, or Rame Tsu accompanies Team 3 as a replacement. This goes on for two months so Kuroda spend most of his time training on his own, training Sakura, researching various things, or hanging out with Ichimaru.
One day Kuroda is in a library looking up something on the Village Hidden in the Grass when Ichimaru walks in. he says, “Man this is really getting annoying. Pulling double duty as a replacement on your team as well as going on my own teams missions is really a pain. What makes it worse is that Jando Hyuga doesn’t listen to anyone. He always jumps right into everything without planning or strategizing. When are you going to get yourself back on to missions?” Kuroda replies, “She is the one making me stay inside the village, go complain to her.” “No way man,” says Ichimaru, “I’m not going to say that to her.” Kuroda states, “It stinks, while I can get in a lot of research and practice, there is no better training than a real mission.” “Strange to see you doing research, but yeah a real mission is the best training,” Ichimaru agrees, “Well I am pretty tired I am going head off to bead.” “Make sure you get a good rest,” says Kuroda, “I heard from Kayo that you have another mission tomorrow.” “Oh yeah, I just remembered, “says Ichimaru, “Sakura said she wanted to talk to you about something important. You should probably go and see her.” “All right, thanks for the message,” responds Kuroda. They depart their separate ways. Kuroda is walking over to Sakura’s house and is almost there when he is transported away.


Rescue Yukiko Arc
Kuroda appears in the Snow Country. He immediately deflects some shuriken that were aimed at Yukiko. Kuroda looks and sees two enemy shinobi from the Village Hidden among the Snow. Behind him is a battered Yukiko. She has a thankful look on her face and says, “I knew you would save me.” Kuroda walks over to her and starts to heal her wounds. One of the enemies throws a few kunai at Kuroda, but he deflects them easily. She yells at him, “Who the Hell are you?” Kuroda does not answer her, and continues to heal Yukiko. This time she fires of a Swallow Blizzard at him. He picks up Yukiko and dodges the attack. He then puts her behind a large rock.
He speaks to the attacker and says, “It is proper to give your own name before asking that of someone else.” She replies, “Why aren’t you a cocky one? You interfere in some other villages business, and don’t even identify yourself.” Kuroda looks confused, and then remembers he has his Petal headband still on. “Oh I see now why you are confused,” he says. He removes his headband and stores it in a pouch, “I am interfering, because you just tried to kill one of my allies. Now why would you do that?” “That weak little piece of is your ally? Well then you must have been the one who told her to follow us around. Well my friend Rin and I don’t appreciate people spying on us. I guess I will just have to kill you both then.” She says. “Hey Gina you think you can handle them both on your own?” says her partner. “The girl is only a Genin, and this guy doesn’t look so tough.” Replies Gina. Kuroda yells to them, “Yukiko will no longer be participating in this fight, but I would recommend that you both attack me. You might have a chance then.” “Why you are a cocky one,” says Rin. “Go get him Gina.” “Yeah, this guy is gonna pay,” She says.
Gina starts off attacking him with some basic Taijutsu and ninja weapons, but soon realizes that it won’t work. Then she uses her Ice Weapons Jutsu to make a big mace. She handles it extremely well, coming close to hitting Kuroda. Kuroda decides to use his own Ice Weapons Jutsu and makes a staff. Gina is disgusted; she says, “That brat is a traitor to her country for teaching an outsider our Jutsu. Kuroda does not reply to the comment. Instead he starts his attack on her. She changes her mace into a staff of her own, but he is to fast for her and lands a few blows. She gets angry and then uses an Ice Clone Jutsu. She and her clone change the staffs into swords and counter Kuroda’s attack. At first Kuroda can defend himself, but eventually Gina overpowers him and he is forced to create two shadow clones. He combines with his clones to destroy hers, and injures her badly.
Rin sees that Gina is loosing and decides to step in and uses her Swallow Blizzard to attack. Gina switches back to her mace and they attack him together. He is able to fend them off, but they destroy one of his clones. Rin decides that the battle is taking to long and uses her Wolf-Fang Avalanche Jutsu to destroy Kuroda’s last clone. Kuroda is barely able to escape, but then Gina traps him in an Ice Prison Jutsu. Kuroda tries to break a bar, but instead shatters his staff. Then he tries to throw a kunai outside, but it freezes in between the bars. Gina laughs and says, “You cannot escape unless I release the Jutsu.” Kuroda yells to Yukiko, “Yukiko I need you to come out where I can see you and lift up your shirt so I can see your belly”. Rin and Gina laugh and say, “What ever you are trying to do, it’s not going to work. There is no way you can possibly escape.” Kuroda uses his Flying Thunder God Technique to transport over to Yukiko. “Thank You Yukiko, please return to a safe area now,” he says.
Rin is pissed and fires off a Swallow Blizzard at them. After dodging Kuroda decides to use a summoning Jutsu and summons the mammoth Uthuloxo. Rin and Gina talk together and decide that they will need to use their most powerful Jutsu to defeat Kuroda. Rin and Gina try to use their Wolf-Fang and Ice Prison combo to trap Kuroda and Uthuloxo, but after seeing it once he is smart enough not to get caught again. Then they go on the offense with Kuroda using his Ice Weapon staff and Uthuloxo using a Swallow Blizzard to attack Rin and Gina. Then Gina uses her strongest attack the Freezing Mist Jutsu to stop an attack in mid-air. Uthuloxo notices that the attack has a limited range, and would only affect them if they got to close. Gina tries to create some Ice Clones, so she can extend the range of her attack, but she does not have enough chakra left. Instead Rin uses her Tiger Pierces Dragon attack. The tiger freezes everything it touches, and can chase after its targets. Kuroda is fast enough to escape it, but Uthuloxo is caught and frozen. Kuroda then leads the tiger and gets it trapped in Gina’s Freezing Mist Jutsu.
Rin and Gina start yelling at each other, and Kuroda takes the opportunity to slash Gina across the chest. Rin sees that Kuroda will win if she does not attack, so she uses her most powerful attack. Rin uses her remaining chakra for her Ice Whale Jutsu. Recognizing the Jutsu Kuroda is able to escape the giant whale. Kuroda attacks Rin and she is too exhausted to dodge and he lands a slash on her chest as well.
Kuroda brings Rin and Gina together and prepares to give them a final blow when they ask for mercy. Kuroda is surprised by their request. They tell him that they are actually rogue ninja who left the snow village because they did not like the way it was being run. They tell him that none of the ninja truly cared about each other and would sacrifice their own lives like Kuroda did for Yukiko. They tell him that if he spares their lives they will follow him and do his bidding like Yukiko. Kuroda calls Yukiko to him and asks for her opinion. Yukiko says that if she believes they are like her and are just searching for someone who will be there when they need them. Kuroda decides he will let them live. He has Rin and Gina each sign one of his contracts. Then Kuroda has them take off their clothes. They hesitate and a surging pain goes through their bodies. Kuroda tells them, “This pain will happen every time you do not obey me. It is not fatal, but it hurts a lot.” They take their clothes off. He takes out a kunai and carves a symbol similar to an exploding tag into their flesh. Then he makes a few hand signs and pours some of his chakra into the marks. After a minute the mark dims and soon is no longer visible. Kuroda tells them to tell no one about what he just did, and to put their clothes back on.
Kuroda then starts to heal their wounds. Kuroda decides they should find a place to stay and rest a while. After they reach a suitable cave he has Rin and Gina tell him about the Village Hidden Among the Snow. After a few days of rest he decides he wants to see more of the village first hand. He takes Gina with him and has Rin stay behind to train Yukiko to use her Jutsu’s better. Kuroda and Gina travel to the snow village and pose as a couple of kids who want the village to search for their missing father. They stay in the village for a week and a half. Kuroda uses the time to learn more about how the village is run, and even a few secrets. Gina gets impatient, because Kuroda makes her stay inside for most of the time. After Kuroda is satisfied they return to Rin and Yukiko.

Visit the Mist Arc

After two weeks in the Snow County Kuroda decides he should probably return to the Hidden Petal Village, but first he wants to make a side trip. Kuroda, Yukiko, Rin, and Gina pose as siblings and take a freighter all the way to the Land of Water. The journey by water takes them a week and a half. After getting to the port they make their way to the Village Hidden in the Mist.
Kuroda puts on a disguise and makes himself look like an old man with a long white beard. He also has the girls change their faces and hair with jutsu. “I have a very secret and important mission and I require the shinobi known as Kasumi Momochi for the mission,” says Kuroda to the Village elders. “Kasumi is one of our top Jonin, she is very important to our village. What will this mission entail?” asks an elder. “This is a very top secret A rank mission. I will only reveal the details to Kasumi,” replies Kuroda. “Can’t you give us any more information than that?” asks another elder, “And why do you need Kasumi specifically?” “I cannot answer either of those questions,” replies Kuroda in a polite manor. The elders whisper among themselves and then the first one who spoke says, “Kasumi is unavailable at the moment, but her brother Desh Momochi is highly skilled and can take her place.” Kuroda fakes considering it for a moment and then puts a large bag of money on the table saying, “Kasumi is the only one who I trusted will be able to do the mission the way I want it.” Eventually the elders give in and summon Kasumi.
Kasumi does not recognize him because of his disguise. An elder tells her, “This man and his friends have hired you for a mission. They have paid a significant sum for your services. You are to leave immediately.” She asks, “So what exactly is the mission? Can you give me some details?” “I will tell you once we are outside the village,” responds Kuroda, “I trust you are prepared for anything that will come up.” She starts to argue, but the elders tell her, “The matter has already been settled Kasumi. Please complete the mission as fast as possible then return to the village.” She does not say anything else and follows her new employers out of the village.
A few miles away from the village Kuroda stops and turns around to Kasumi. She starts to ask him, “Why was I requested for this mission and what exactly is the mission? And…” Kuroda interrupts her, “Is anyone from the village is following us?” She says, “I was not aware there was any reason for someone to follow us.” Kuroda says, “Let me rephrase that; tell me if anyone was sent by the village to follow us.” Kasumi does not answer and she is hit by a wave of pain, and falls over. She slowly gets up and says, “it’s you isn’t it?” “Answer my question Kasumi, unless you want the pain to continue,” says Kuroda. Kasumi answers, “The village elders told me to watch you closely and abandon the mission if it was too dangerous, but they did not send anyone to follow us.” “Good,” says Kuroda, and then he takes off his disguise.
Kasumi asks who the others are, because they don’t look like they could be the same ones from the last time. “Don’t be foolish.” says Kuroda, “I would never bring any of those people on a personal mission.” “A personal mission? Why are you here? What do you want me for?” asks Kasumi. Kuroda replies, “I have come to see how you are. I also want to know why the Hidden Mist Village has not made any public responses to our encounter in the Tea Country.” Kasumi asks, “Is that all?’ “Yes, that is the only reason I have come. I became concerned when I did not hear any news in my own village and wanted more information. I figured that they might have used poison or some other means to kill you because they did not believe your story.” “Oh the Mizukage believed my story when he heard it, and the village is taking it very seriously,” replies Kasumi. “We have sent out messages to all our ninja to look out for a mysterious and deadly shinobi. We have sent spy’s all over to find out which village he is from. As for our encounter in the Tea Country the Mizukage has decided to wait for the Petal Village to make the first move before responding.” “I see, very interesting,” comments Kuroda.
Kuroda tells the others to take off their disguises. “Kasumi, this is Yukiko, Rin, and Gina. They are other associates of mine. If you ever happen to come across them during a mission for your village I want you to do your utmost to avoid any combat with them. Now you three return to the Snow Country and continue to train and become stronger. Yukiko you can tell the others of the mission I gave you, but I doubt you will find anyone. Do not go near the Village Hidden Among the Snow. If you need to contact me by either sending a note using the aliases Rin and I used; or you can come in person and ask for a ninja called Kayo Yuhi and her squad to go on a freight escort mission.” He throws them a bag of money. “This should be enough if you need to come in person. Now give me your headbands, from this point on you are no longer to associate yourself with that village. If nothing happens I will contact you in two years if nothing comes up, now go.” The three head off.
He turns toward Kasumi, “Now you will wait for a few days and then return to your village saying that you assassinated ninja from the Snow Village.” He tosses her one of the headbands. “In one month you will suddenly remember that you saw the Mystery ninja use a grass type Jutsu. You will suggest that the village give this information to the Hidden Petal Village and that there should be a joint mission to identify if the Mystery ninja hails from the grass village.” Kasumi asks, “Why do you want to blame the grass village? Kuroda replies, “I want to visit the grass village for my own purposes that you don’t need to know at the moment. However I am still a member of the Petal Village and I don’t have any good excuse to go there. So this will give me the opportunity I need.” Kasumi decides to not question it anymore. “Have fun on your mini-vacation,” says Kuroda, “Make sure to be discrete about where you go and what you do.” “That won’t be a problem,” she replies. He nods and then decides to leave and head back to his village.

Kuroda is Back Arc

Kuroda arrives outside the gates of the Petal Village, and then two guards jump down and block his entrance. They both take out a kunai and get ready to attack. “Who are you? And what are you doing here?” one of them asks. “Relax,” says Kuroda holding his hands up, “My name is Kuroda Taishi, I am a Genin here in the village.” “We know who Kuroda Taishi is,” says the guard, “and there is no way you are him.” “Why not?” asks Kuroda. “Because he vanished from the village two weeks ago,” replies the second guard, “You may look like him, but there is no way you are him.”
“Well if it is going to be like that then I request an audience with the Koukage,” says Kuroda. The guards look at each other and then one of them sends a message on the radio. Raj bursts into the Koukage’s office and immediately falls to his knees bowing, “I am sorry to intrude Lady Koukage but we have urgent news.” She sets down the scroll she was reading and replies, “What is it? Did the Tsuchikage send a reply message?” “No My Lady,” he responds, “There is a report from the East Entrance that there is a boy claiming to be Kuroda Taishi.” She stands up immediately, “What did you say?” “The guards say they stopped a boy trying to get into the village. He claims to be Kuroda Taishi and even looks like him. He has requested an audience with you.” The Koukage jumps out of the window and runs toward the gate leaving Raj behind.
Kuroda sees the Koukage approaching and sighs in relief, “Finally someone rational is coming. Will you tell them who I am Lady Koukage?” “I know who you look like, and who you claim to be,” says the 8th Koukage, “But I find it very hard to believe that you would just suddenly appear after running away from the village for a month.” Kuroda states, “What makes you think I ran away? I could have been kidnapped, or mislead by someone to think I was on a mission.” The Koukage admits, “Those two options are possible, but there is no proof of either of them.” Kuroda replies, “Well then I guess that the only real way to confirm my identity is to have Kayo to use her Mind Interrogation Jutsu on me.”
The Koukage then remarks, “The real Kuroda would not know about that Jutsu.” Kuroda counters, “I am well aware of the Jutsu and I am sure that it has been used on me at least once, due to a time gap in my memories. Plus I have seen Kayo-sensei use it on a mission before and I know it erases all traces of the invasion into the victims mind. The 8th now seems convinced that it is in fact Kuroda. The Koukage grabs him by the ear and drags him all the way to her office.
Once they get there she starts yelling at him about all the ninja they had to use to look for him, and how Sakura got extremely sick from worry and ended up in the hospital, and various other things that could have destroyed the entire village because he disappeared. Then she starts questioning him, “Now I want to know where you went and why you left even though you were under direct orders not to do so.” Kuroda calmly explains, “I was on my way to visit Sakura when a messenger bird flew up to me and gave me a note saying that a friend I met on one of his missions needed my help. So I decided that I would go on my own and help out, partly because I wanted to help and because I wanted to get out of the village for a while. It turns out that my friend was being harassed by some new gang that just showed up in his town. So I helped to get rid of the gang and set up some defenses, so that the people would be safe from any future trouble.”
The Koukage starts yelling at him saying, “We could have easily sent a team on a mission to help out and then this whole mess would have been avoided.” Kuroda replies, “The town was poor and would not have been able to pay for a mission, so I did it for free.” The Koukage admits, “It was the right thing to do, but you should have at least told someone. But now you have forced my hand. You will still be confined to the village like before, but now I will assign someone to follow you everywhere you go to make sure you obeys my orders.” Kuroda exits her office groaning when he runs into Kayo.
She tries to slap him across the face, but the pain of the seal surges through her. “You idiot where have you been? Sakura has been so worried about you. She even tried to kill herself in order to summon you back and make sure you were still alive. But this cursed pain prevented her from doing that. Finally she tried and failed so many times that her body just collapsed and the medical ninja are bewildered because they cannot figure out what is wrong.” Kuroda drags her into a private room and replies, “It was pointless of her to worry so much because if I die you will instantly know because the seal mark would burn off. Kayo snaps back, “How are we supposed to know that? You never told us that, so there was no way for us to know.” Kuroda smirks and says, “I was not aware that Sakura cared that much about my well being. Kayo gets angry, but Kuroda walks away to visit Sakura in the hospital.
Guard the Princess Arc

Kuroda is trapped inside the village for another month and this time he has fellow ninja following him around. He gets irritated very easily because he can never be alone, but is lucky when his escort turns out to be either Ichimaru, Kayo, or Sakura. Kuroda starts to notice that Sakura is getting very attached to him and is very grumpy when she returns from long mission and has not seen him for a few days.
One day a request comes in and all of Team 3 is called to the Koukage’s office. The Koukage starts out by saying, “I am still very angry at you Kuroda and was not planning on letting you go outside the village for another few months; however a request came in asking for you personally to be on the mission.” “A request for me, who is it from?” he inquires. “It seems that the King of the Valley Country asked for you. As you know, from your last visit, the Valley Country is in negotiations for peace with the neighboring Forest Country. Well it seems that there are some people who do not want peace and have threatened the Princess of the Valley Country. So until the negotiations are completed the King has asked that you come and guard her. Now if you did not know the Forest Country has a small ninja village, which is not much of a threat to us, but for a country with no ninja village of its own it is very serious. The King seems to believe that the ninja are very loyal to the leaders of the Forest Country and will not attack the girl. Yet there is still the possibility that someone will act of their own volition, so he wanted your protection. For obvious reasons I am sending the rest of your team with you,” decides the 8th Koukage.
Team 3 travels to the Forest Country and are greeted by Princess Kyoko when they arrive. She is very excited to see Kuroda again and has lots of fun with him. She now starts paying more attention to Jando, but only for the purpose of pulling pranks on him. Everyone is very entertained by this, except of course for Jando. An uneventful week goes by and nothing happens. Sakura uses the time to continue her training and can now produce three fully functional Shadow Clones. Kuroda notices that Jando has also improved and is now able to control his Byakugan better.
One morning Sakura, Kyoko and Kuroda go for a walk in the forest when they are attacked by a female ninja. “So they hired some Petal Ninja to protect the princess,” she says. “Who are you?” asks Kuroda shifting himself in front of Kyoko. She identifies herself, “I am Kohaku from the Village Hidden in the Woods. I do not support the alliance between the Forest Country and the Valley Country, and I have come here to ensure it does not happen. Be warned Petal ninja, I will do anything to stop it.” Kuroda orders, “Sakura, bring Kyoko back to the village. I will deal with her.” “Right, come with me princess,” replies Sakura as she grabs Kyoko and takes off.” Kohaku tries to follow them but is stopped by Kuroda. “You will have to get through me first,” says Kuroda as he engages her with a kunai.
Kohaku leaps back onto the branch of a large tree, “Bad move deciding to take me on by yourself. I have the advantage in the forest.” “I advise you not to underestimate me,” responds Kuroda. “Why because you are from the Petal village?” she asks, “That won’t make any difference. Ninja Art: Stick Needle Jutsu!” Thousands of tiny sticks and branches come flying at Kuroda from all directions. He tries to dodge it, but the attack is very fast and comes from many angles. Kuroda decides to use his Ice Weapon Jutsu and forms a sphere with the water in his pouch. Now Kuroda is able to deflect Kohaku’s attack easily.
“No bad,” comments Kohaku, “I will just have to change my strategy then.” Suddenly Jando, Sakura, and Kayo come to back him up. Kohaku decides, “Four against one, I don’t like those odds. My best option is to retreat for now and come back later.” She runs away deeper into the forest. Kuroda orders, “You three stay here with Princess Kyoko in case any more ninja show up. I will track her down and attempt to capture her.” Jando objects, “You have not even been with the team for a while. I do not know why the others are even listening to you, but I am coming too.” So Jando and Kuroda go after Kohaku.
Kohaku crosses the border into the Forest Country and goes inside a gigantic tree in a large forest. They follow her inside the base of the tree and into a large room with a strange looking tree in it. The tree looks to be half alive and half dead. It has wings and it has a portion of a scroll sticking out of it. Kohaku looks and sees them enter the room. She says, “I thought that all of you would follow me, but since there are only two of you I she won’t have to take the scroll from the tree.” Jando replies, “Don’t get cocky. It is a two on one match and you will need all the help you can get.” “You are the one who is cocky,” replies Kohaku as she quickly uses her Stick Needle Jutsu to attack them.
This time the attack is even more powerful than before. Jando and Kuroda are able to use Escape Jutsu to get away safely. Kohaku follows them outside the tree still attacking. She explains, “This part of the forest is denser than the area we were in earlier. My Jutsu are three times more powerful in here.” Kuroda uses his Ice Weapons Jutsu and creates a large shield that is big enough to protect both of them. Jando activates his Byakugan so he is able to see outside. “Good thinking Jando, now we can see what she is doing out there. You should observe her attacks and see if there is an opening we can use to our advantage.”
They sit under the shield fully protected from everything she throws at them. After a while Jando reports, “There is a pause in her attacks every 30 seconds we can strike then.” “Good work,” compliments Kuroda.” When the time is right they lift the shield and counter with kunai. She dodges behind a tree. Kohaku think, “Damn this isn’t working, that shield is too strong. I don’t see how though seeing as it is made of ice. Whatever it doesn’t matter, I will just have to step it up a bit. Ninja Art: Falling Tree Jutsu!” She barely even touches the tree she is hiding behind and it instantly toples over on top of the boys. Since they are under the shield they cannot dodge the attack, and the trees fall on top of the shield. It gains a small crack in it, but still holds strong.
“What was that?” asks Kuroda. “She threw a tree at us somehow,” explains Jando, “Do you think this shield will hold.” “I don’t know, just be ready if it breaks,” warns Kuroda. After 3 more trees fall, the shield breaks and they scatter for cover. As Kuroda runs her suspects, “The air here is not as cold as when I was in the snow village. I should have realized that the weapons I create will not be as strong. I also lost nearly all my water when the shield collapsed, I will have to be careful.”
Jando decides, “I am tired of hiding, it is time to go on the offensive.” He charges straight at Kohaku. She is so surprised that he lands a punch right in her face. Then Jando uses his Gentle Fist Taijutsu to close up some of her chakra points disabling the flow of chakra to her fingers. She tries to use her jutsu again since they are out in the open, but is unable to. “What the hell did you do to me?” she questions. “I noticed that you use your fingers to control your jutsu,” explains Jando, “So I messed with your chakra points. You wont be able to use those jutsu anymore.” “Not bad,” she says, “But you didn’t think those were my only jutsu did you? Ninja Art: Branch Bashing Jutsu!”
She uses her arms to control the branches of trees and attack Jando. Since the forest is so large Jando is not able to dodge the attacks and is knocked out when a branch hits him right in the back of the head. Kuroda takes the opening and uses his Headhunter Jutsu. He sprouts up from the ground underneath her and grabs her ankles and drags her down, trapping all but her head under the surface. He stands up and brushes his hands off. “Let me out of here!” demands Kohaku as she struggles to break free. “I haven’t practiced this a whole lot on a full-fledged ninja, but it is worth a shot,” comments Kuroda. He uses the Demonic Illusion: Hell Viewing Genjutsu Technique on Kohaku and makes her believe that she is being burned alive.
She screams in agony as the fire consumes her body. “I can stop this,” says Kuroda, “I can save you from the fire. I am the only one who can save you.” “Please stop, help, save me,” she begs. “I can save you,” he repeats, “But you must pledge your loyalty to me.” She is in such fear that she agrees and instantly signs the contract he gives to her. He releases the Genjutsu and brings her up from the ground. “Thank you,” she says. “ Kuroda tells her, “Take off your clothes.” She hesitates and a surging pain goes through her body. Kuroda explains, “That pain you are experiencing right now will happen every time you try to disobey me. It is not fatal, but it hurts a lot.” She begins stripping her clothes off. “It stopped,” she remarks. “All you have to do is follow orders and you will be fine,” replies Kuroda. “That pain, it was worse than the fire,” she comments as she takes the last article of cloth off.”
“Good that means it is working correctly,” he says, “Now please lie down and relax. When she does he holds out his palm in the space above her body and moves it around until he locates the correct spot. Then he takes out a kunai and carves a symbol similar to an exploding tag into her flesh. Then he makes a few hand signs and pours some of his chakra into the mark. After a minute the mark dims and soon is no longer visible. Kuroda says, “You are not to tell anyone about what just occurred. Oh, and you can put your clothes back on.”
“So what now?” asks Kohaku as she dresses. Kuroda asks, “Are there any other ninja who accompanied you?” “No, just me,” she admits, “There were a few others that agreed with her and did not want our countries to align, but none of them wanted to go against the village.” Kuroda ponders, “What should I do with her? I could send her back to her village, but would they accept her back? Hold on a moment I just remembered something.” “Kohaku, what was that strange tree with the scroll inside the gigantic tree?” he inquires. Kohaku replies, “The tree contains a very powerful summoning scroll, but it is sealed inside and can only be obtained if the person knows the answer to the riddle engraved in the tree.” Kuroda asks, “So what is the answer?” “I was bluffing earlier,” she admits, “I have been trying to figure it out for a while. I was trying to get it before you two got to me, but I would have needed more time to figure it out.”
“I guess I will just have to do it then,” he replies. “Do you really think you can get it?” she asks. “No harm in trying,” he responds. Kuroda walks over to the odd tree and looks for the riddle. It reads one of element and one of animal; both these things are bringers of life and both have three stages of existence. Touch them both to the scroll and it will be released. Kuroda thinks for a moment and then walks outside. He searches around for a while and then returns to the tree. In one hand he holds his water pouch with the last of his water and in the other a butterfly. He pours the water over the scroll and sets the butterfly onto it. Then he pulls and the scrolls slides out from the tree. After the scroll is completely out the wings of the tree recede and the dead portions are returned to life.
Kohaku is amazed by the ease at which Kuroda solved the riddle. Kuroda explains, “Water is a source of life for both plants and animals, while the butterfly spreads pollen from one flower to another and helps them reproduce. Water can also be in the form of ice, water, or vapor. While the butterfly starts out as a caterpillar, then becomes a cocoon, and finally transforms into the butterfly. The scroll will most likely summon a butterfly.” Kohaku requests, “Please allow me to sign the scroll.” Kuroda says, “You already posses some very powerful Jutsu and so I will give it to someone else. Now I need to figure out what to do with you.” “What do you mean?” she asks.
“Well I can’t just bring you back to the Petal village now can I?” he replies. “But then why did you…?” she asks. He interrupts, “I was impressed by your strength and decided I could use you for my plan.” “Your plan?” she inquires. “I will inform you when the time is right, but that won’t be for a while. Anyways I just decided what I will do with you.” “And that is?” she asks. “Well you can’t go back to your village and I can’t bring you back to mine. So I will leave you here. You will become a personal guard for Princess Kyoko and protect her from any future attacks.” “What about the other Petal Ninja?” asks Kohaku. “The princess and the others have signed contracts like you have,” he explains, “and the guy on the ground is not important. We can trick him easily.”
Kuroda brings Kohaku with him back to the mansion. He meets with Kayo and Sakura and has them change Kohaku’s appearance just enough so that no one will recognize her. Then Kuroda goes back for Jando. Jando is just starting to regain consciousness when Kuroda arrives.
“Welcome back,” he greets Jando, “Good work.” “What do you mean?” asks Jando rubbing his head. “You killed that Tree ninja with one of your exploding tags.” “I did?” says Jando still a little groggy. “Yep, but she got you in the head at the same time. You have been out for about an hour.” “What about the girls?” asks Jando. “They are fine,” says Kuroda, “Kayo-sensei sent Sakura to find us a while back. It looks like that girl was on her own, but I sent Sakura back just in case and did a little recon. You were waking up when I got back.” They return to the mansion and Jando does not recognize Kohaku who they say was very helpful during the attack and is being hired as a new assistant for Princess Kyoko. A week later the King returns from successful negotiations and is told of about the attack and the new guard for Kyoko.
Team 3 starts their return journey. Kuroda decides to give his newly acquired summoning scroll to Sakura. Jando is mad because he is now the only one without a scroll. Sakura tests the scroll out and summons a normal sized white butterfly called Papilio. Jando laughs at the size of the butterfly, and Sakura seems disappointed. Kuroda tells her, “Even the smallest creatures can be valuable assets; maybe not in battle, but in other areas. You should get familiar with Papilio and practice with her. You should also practice the Summoning Jutsu so you can get better at it and eventually summon larger butterflies.” “All right I will,” she says with a determined look on her face.
Team 3 arrives back in the village after a successful mission, but Kuroda is immediately put back on suspension and not able to leave the village. Kuroda’s birthday comes and goes, but the only one who notices is Ichimaru. Kuroda does not seem surprised that no one else remembered. The two spend the day together and talk about the times before they became Genin and how much they have changed. At the end of the day Ichimaru mentions, “So the Chunin exams are coming up again in a few weeks. Team 10 is going to participate in them this time. Kuroda says, “I think that my team seems like it would be ready, but I doubt that the Koukage would let me participate.” Ichimaru offers, “I can to talk to the Koukage on your behalf,” Kuroda replies, “I doubt it will make any difference, but go ahead if you want. It is worth a shot.”

Mist Alliance Arc

A day later Team 3 including Kuroda is summoned to the Koukage’s office. She starts off, “As I am sure you are all aware, I restricted Kuroda to the village after his mission in the Tea Country with Team 15. The team and the Mist ninja Kasumi Momochi were attacked by an unknown person, and then on the return to the village Kuroda was attacked again. I have had recent talks with the Village Hidden in the Mist regarding this matter.” “Did you find out what Kasumi was doing in the Tea Country?” inquires Kayo. “The Mizukage did not tell me and I did not ask,” replies the Koukage, “Whatever her assignment was it is not a high priority at the moment.”
“Still it was suspicious,” remarks Kuroda. “Anyways it seems that The Hidden Mist has uncovered evidence that the ninja could possibly be from the Village Hidden in the Grass,” reveals the 8th, “Our two shinobi villages have decided to participate in a joint scouting mission as a sign of good faith between us. You can come in now.” A tall young man with spiky light blue hair walks into the room. He wears light blue pants, a brown vest, and his mist headband is slightly slanted on his forehead. He introduces himself, “I am Desh Momochi, the Mizukage sent me as his representative on this mission.” “Momoshi, are you related to…?” inquires Kayo. “She is my older sister,” says Desh cutting her off. “How come you are alone?” asks Sakura. “How come you are not?” retorts Desh. “Quiet down all of you, I want to go over the mission rules,” says the Koukage.
“Lady Koukage, why am I being sent on a mission where I could possibly encounter the ninja who might have attacked me?” asks Kuroda, “And if the mystery ninja is from the grass village, then its leaders might know what I look like anyways and they might attack.” She replies, I am sending you because there is a possibility that it might trigger some suppressed memories and you might be able to recognize the ninja and confirm his identity.” Kuroda then asks, “As you wish Lady Koukage. Now I have a question for you Desh. Why is the Mist Village only sent one ninja? This is a joint mission, and I would want an equal number of ninja from both villages if I was in charge.” Desh replies, “I am more than capable of conducting the whole mission on my own, and the only reason that your team is going along is to ease relations between our two nations.”
“Are you two done now?” asks the Koukage. “Yes I apologize if I spoke out of turn,” says Kuroda. “Now you are to go to the Grass Country and search for any traces of this mysterious ninja. This mission is strictly to gather information. You are to retreat if you are met with any opposition. Is that understood?” “Yes Lady Koukage,” confirm all of Team 3. “Desh?” she inquires. “Yeah, I was already told by the Mizukage,” he replies. “Good, then you are to head out as soon as you are ready,” she says.
Team 3 and Desh leave on the mission and head to the border of the Land of Fire and the Land of Grass. Desh and Kuroda get into conversation where Desh comments, “You talk a lot. If this mystery ninja had not attacked my sister Kasumi, then you would not even be alive right now.” Kuroda retorts, “It was a four on one situation.” Desh mocks the statement, “So what? My sister is stronger than most of the Jonin in the Hidden Petal Village there is no way she would have lost.” Kuroda then mentions, “You say that, and yet she was apparently not strong enough to defeat the mystery ninja.” Desh starts to get angry, but Kayo interrupts, “Settle down. We are approaching the border.”
Desh says, “I don’t have to follow your orders.” She reminds him, “This is a joint mission, and since I am the highest in rank that you will have to follow my orders in order to ensure the success of the mission.” “Fine, I will follow your command,” replies Desh, “For the moment.” The team passes through the border town, without any hassle. They make camp for the night.
They next day the team disguises themselves as ordinary travelers and they put on long blue traveling cloaks. Then they head for a large city only a few miles away from the border. It is a city known for having lots of information on anything and everything. Kuroda notices that three ninja are following them, but does not mention it to anyone else. When they enter the city Desh suggests, “I am familiar with a few places. We should check them and ask around about any strong or mysterious ninja that have passed through lately.” “Do you really think that will work?” asks Sakura. “Everyone is willing to talk,” explains Desh smirking, “For a price.” “What if they give us bad information?” asks Jando, “What if it is just rumors?” “Every rumor has some sort of factual base,” says Kayo, “besides we are looking for rumors and whispers about this mystery ninja. This will also be good training for your information gathering skills.” “Training?” inquires Jando, “I didn’t think of that.” “I will do my best!” announces Sakura. “I know you will,” says Kuroda patting her head and messing up her hair, making her blush.
“All right, let’s get moving then,” orders Kayo. “Follow me,” says Desh, “We will head to a little flower shop I know of.” The team sets out through the city going to multiple locations trying to find the information they need. Kuroda is curious about how Desh knows all of these information sources and he is very careful to take note of all of them. He advises Sakura to do the same. After a while they are directed to a small restaurant that looks to have very promising information. They enter the restaurant and Kuroda, Jando, and Sakura sit down at a table while Desh and Kayo go to talk to the bartender. After a drink of water Kuroda stands up and starts to walk away. “Where are you going Kuroda?” asks Sakura. “To the washroom, do you want to come?” he replies smirking.
Meanwhile the bartender has directed Kayo and Desh to a man in a black suit sitting alone at a corner booth and smoking a cigarette. “Do you mind if we join you?” asks Kayo as they walk up. “Who is your friend?” asks the man. “Just my younger brother,” she replies. “Well in that case you are welcome to sit with me,” responds the man, “As long as you let me see that pretty face of yours.” Kayo lowers the hood of her cloak and smirks as she sits down. Desh sits next to her and asks, “So are you the one called Byakko?” “That’s what they call me,” confirms Byakko, “and if you don’t mind I would like your sister to do the talking. I much prefer listening to the voice of a woman.” “We were told that you might have some information we have been looking for,” explains Kayo.
“I have information on a lot of things,” replies Byakko. “We are looking for someone,” says Kayo. “I know lots of people,” says Byakko taking another puff of his cigarette. “We are looking for a Ninja,” says Kayo. “A ninja, well why didn’t you say so? So what kind of ninja? Is it a man or a woman? Is there anything special about them? Where are they from?” asks Byakko. “I can’t tell you the gender or give you any facial descriptions. We believe that the ninja is from the Grass Village,” explains Kayo, “However I can tell you the ninja is very strong. They were able to take out 2 jonin with ease, and possibly has an ability to alter memories.”
“A strong ninja from the Grass village you say? Well that is interesting,” comment Byakko. “Why is that?” asks Kayo. “Because there is a very skilled Grass Ninja staying at an inn on the far end of the city,” explains Byakko, “I believe his name is Mazuma Shiranui.” “You are positive about this?” asks Kayo. “Absolutely,” he confirms. “Well I think we will be going then,” she says as she starts to stand and take out some money. “There is no need for that,” says Byakko, “Just make sure you stop by and chat the next time you are in town.” “I will be sure to do so,” replies Kayo.
Meanwhile Kuroda has made a shadow clone while he was in the bathroom. The clone walks out and joins his team when Kayo and Desh rejoin them. “Find anything useful?” asks the clone. “Kayo pulls the hood up on her cloak and replies, “Yes, it seems there is someone in town who fits the profile.” “Really?” asks Jando. “We will find out when we get there,” says Desh. They leave and the real Kuroda emerges from the bathroom and takes a seat in an empty corner of the restaurant.
He waits a few minutes until he spots the ninjas, which have been following his team since they entered the city, enter the restaurant. They are a young Genin team made of two guys and a girl. They stop and talk to each other, Kuroda overhears them call the girl Midori, and tell her to head back to the village and tell the leader about the enemy ninja’s actions. They head in separate directions, and Kuroda follows Midori. She heads towards the edge of the city and then stops and goes inside an old house. Kuroda follows her inside, but is attacked by a flurry of shuriken. Kuroda is able to perform a Replacement Jutsu to escape to another side of the room.
Midori takes out a kunai and says, “I noticed you following me after I left the others. I probably should have tried to get some help, but you didn’t look that strong so I decided to take you on all by myself.” Kuroda comments, “Confidence is a good thing to have, but looks can be deceiving and you should never underestimate a fellow ninja.” “And what does that say about you?” she replies, “Seeing as you came after me on your own.” “Well said,” compliments Kuroda,” However I know something that you do not.” “And what is that?” she inquires. “You will just have to find that out on your own,” he replies.
“Fine then, here I come,” she shouts as she charges toward him. Midori uses basic Taijutsu to attack Kuroda but he easily counters all of her attacks. He lands a hard kick to her gut and sends her flying into a wall. Her back crashes into it and she slumps to the ground panting. He starts to say, “Well this is disappointing. You are not even worth my time, and I should probably kill you quickly before…” “Not so fast, Grass Style: Vine Spear Jutsu!” A long vine that she wore curled up on her belt unrolls itself and turns into a long sharp spear. Kuroda thinks, “Very intriguing, I wasn’t expecting anything from her. She may be useful after all.”
She jabs the spear at him from across the room, and he neatly slips to the side to avoid it. “That is strange, I thought she was exhausted,” thinks Kuroda. She twists the spear to the side and tries to slash his mid-section. Kuroda nimbly jumps over the spear and it cuts a nearby table in two. “You have been holding back,” comments Kuroda. “You should never attack an unknown enemy at full strength right off the bat,” replies Midori. She twirls the spear back behind her back and raises it above her head, and then brings it down for a powerful blow. Again Kuroda sidesteps, and the jumps over the vine spear when she does a follow up horizontal attack.
The same attack and dodge game continues on for a while. Midori’s attacks are more disciplined, but Kuroda is able to avoid them all with ease. “Well I think I have seen enough,” announces Kuroda. “What do you mean?” she asks. “Haven’t you noticed?” says Kuroda smirking, “I’ve just been testing out your abilities the whole time. Suddenly he lunges forward, straight past her defenses and slashes her across the chest with his kunai. Before she can even react he uses his speed and technique to land a series of painful blows with a kunai. She falls to the ground and drops her vine spear. It loses its shape and returns to a normal vine as soon as it falls from her grasp.
Then he uses his Demonic Illusion Hell Viewing Technique on Midori. A giant white tiger appears on top of her and threatens to bite her head off. She is too frightened to recognize that it is a Genjutsu. Because of the insane fear and panic caused by the jutsu she is in no condition to make a rational decision. So Kuroda is easily able to convince her to sign one of his blood contracts. Then he does his special sealing ritual, transferring a minute portion of his chakra into the carving he makes on her upper thigh. After the ritual Kuroda interrogates her for information. “So why was your team following us?” he asks as he begins to heal her wounds with his medical jutsu. “My squad was sent to investigate why the Petal Village and the Mist Village were working together on a mission in the Land of Grass,” explains Midori.
“I see, and why did your friends send you off on your own?” he asks. “We followed you around all day and all you were doing was searching for information. They sent me back to ask the village if we should continue the mission,” she replies. “And they will continue tracking my team while you are gone?” he asks as he finishes up the final cut on her left breast.” “Yes,” she answers. “You should be fine now,” he says as he stands up, “You can put your shirt back on.” She quickly covers herself, already embarrassed and confused about what happened. “So what now?” she asks.
Kuroda tells Midori, “You will return to your village like you originally planned, and tell your superiors that the enemy ninja were searching for a mysterious and powerful ninja that was rumored to be attacking people and stealing valuable information from their villages. The Petal and Mist village have uncovered evidence that the ninja uses techniques from the Hidden Grass Village and they sent a scouting team to investigate.” “Why do you want me to tell them that?” she inquires. “Because it is the truth,” he replies. She looks at him skeptically, “But why would you want me to tell them what you are really doing here?” “That, you don’t need to know,” he replies. “Fine, is that all then? Can I go?” “Hold on a minute,” he replies.
Kuroda transforms into a perfect replica of Midori. “Why are you…?” she asks. “Because I need to look friendly when I catch up with your team,” explains Kuroda, “Now you can go.” She hesitates for a second and then takes off; he leaves to catch up with her team. Kuroda uses his Flying Thunder God Technique to catch up in a fraction of the time. Kuroda quickly reaches the other two Grass Village Genin and runs up behind them. “Midori, what are you doing?” one asks, “We told you to go back to the village.” He explains, “One of the enemy ninja tried to follow me, but I defeated him and learned that they are looking for a powerful ninja from the Grass Village and were sent to kill him.” “What are you serious?” one exclaims. The other comments, “The only ninja in the area is Mazuma Shiranui because he is on vacation.” “I know,” says Kuroda, “He must be their target. We need to warn him quickly!” They say, “If we take the shortcut we should be able to beat the enemy by a few minutes and warn Mazuma.”
After a speedy race across the village they reach Mazuma right before he enters his hotel. “Muzuma sensei, there is a group of enemy ninja in this village. We have solid information that they have been sent here to assassinate you,” explains one of the boys.”Where are they now?” asks Mazuma. “They are headed this way,” replies a disguised Kuroda. “All right, Midori you head back to the Village and tell the elders about this. We will stay here and see what they truly intend to do,” says Mazuma. “Yes I will go now,” says Kuroda. He heads off just when he sees his team approaching from afar.
As Team 3 approaches the hotel Desh notices that Kuroda is falling back in the formation. “What is that guy playing at?” he wonders. However he quickly forgets when he sees three grass ninja in front of the hotel. While no one notices the real Kuroda switches with the clone and rejoins the group. Desh darts ahead of the group and heads towards the grass ninja while pulling out a kunai. “Wait, what are you doing?” says Sakura as he runs past her. “Damn I told him not to separate from the group!” shouts Kayo as she and the others sprint after him.
Mazuma sees a group sprinting towards him and takes it as a threat. He quickly takes the vine off his belt and hardens it into a spear. Desh doesn’t stop even when he sees this, just mealy raising up his kunai a bit. Mazuma thrusts Vine Spear forward and hits Desh right in the chest, but it is a Water Clone and falls into a puddle. The real Desh appears back where the rest of the group is and they come to a stop. Desh yells, “You just made a big mistake Grass Ninja! Attacking another persoon like that without any warning. Mazuma replies, “Foreign ninja are not supposed to be in the grass country without the permission of the Hidden Grass Village. I had every right to attack,” Desh corrects him, “That rule only applies to the Hidden Village. The entire country is fair game to any ninja from any other village unless you set up strict border entrances like the rain village. By attacking so recklessly you might have just declared war on the Mist Village. I should kill him for attacking someone who so obviously was not attacking him.”
Mazuma responds, I just received information that a group was sent to assassinate me. How am I supposed to react when someone rushes at me with a knife?” Desh laughs, “I don’t even know who you are. You are a nobody! If I had really wanted to kill you i would not have come straight towards you like an idiot.” Kayo steps in and whispers to Desh, “That is enough, our cover is blown and the mission goals are no longer obtainable. We need to retreat.” Desh regretfully agrees, “Fine let’s get out of here then.” “I apologize for the intrusion, we will be leaving now,” Kayo says to the Grass ninja. As they turn to go Desh warns Mazuma, “Hey you! The next time we meet I won’t hesitate to kill you even if it is against my orders.” They leave and head back towards the border.
After passing through the border town they rest at a Petal Village outpost. Kuroda watches as Sakura practices her Summoning Jutsu and is now able to summon two Butterflies about the size of dogs. Kayo yells at Desh, “What were you thinking? You just made all the work we did useless! Now we can’t even go investigate any of the other cities in the Grass village. Desh does not really pay attention and says, “I told you I would have done a lot better on my own.” Jando comments, “Yeah, that was stupid for just charging towards an enemy group all by yourself.” Sakura comments to Kuroda, “Reminds you of someone else we know?” Kuroda snickers and she giggles.
They arrive back in the Hidden Petal Village a few days later and immediately report to the Koukage. It mostly consists of Kayo and Jando complaining about Desh. The Koukage admits, “I knew the mission did not have a high success probability in the first place. I only agreed to it to improve relations with the Hidden Mist.” She excuses Desh and he heads back to his own village. Everyone else leaves after some more complaints, but Kuroda stays behind.
He asks the Koukage, “Was it really a good idea to expose a possible alliance to other ninja villages?” The Koukage replies, “You wouldn’t understand the complexities of the situation or my true intentions. I am not going to bother explaining them.” “I have done a lot of reading about politics,” he replies. “Books can only tell you so much,” she replies, “Practical application is an entirely different thing.” Sensing she wouldn’t say anymore he changes she subject, “So am I going to be put back on suspension now?” She replies, “I have decided to return you to active duty.” Kuroda seems genuinely surprised and asks, “Why the sudden change?” She replies, “The Chunin exams are coming up soon. It will be the first time in over two centuries that the Petal Village will be participating alongside the Rock Village. I want the best Genin in the village to be participating in it, which includes you. Kuroda decides that her answer is satisfying and exits her office. Kuroda goes to find Sakura to see if she has learned any more about her new summons.

Yeah, well he wasn't doing anything naughty. He just needed to find a certain chakra point on her body, and since he doesn't have the Byakugan it was the only way he could do it

Kuroda Taishi and Ichimaru Nara are academy students in the Village Hidden in the Petals. They have been best friends since early childhood, and are almost always together. They are both extremely intelligent, but do not like to show it. They enjoy goofing off and messing around with everyone. Noako Fei and Rame Tsu, the best female shinobi in the class, always point them out as why boys are incompetent. Shun Kaishi, the top academy student, enjoys their pranks, but thinks they could do a lot better in school if they wanted to. Yui Yamanaka and Sakura Nagana ignore them and think they are pests; they focus their attention on Shun.
__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
Recently tension has been growing between the Hidden Leaf Village and the Hidden Rock Village. This is due to an incident where Leaf shinobi accidentally attacked Rock shinobi. Now the 7th Koukage Hanabiramaru Sarutobi made a deal with the Tsuchikage to prevent a war. As a part of the deal he has to sacrifice his life in order to form an alliance with the Hidden Rock Village. But before this the 7th must reveal an awful truth to a certain academy student. The 7th uses his Telescope Technique to observe Kuroda and Ichimaru pulling a prank in class.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
After school Kuroda and Ichimaru are walking home, joking around like normal, when the 7th appears in front of them and asks, "May I speak to Kuroda alone Ichimaru?"

"Of course Lord Koukage," replies Ichimaru, "See you later Kuroda."

"So what's up gramps?" asks Kuroda.

"Come walk with me," replies the 7th. They walk to the stone of the lost shinobi and the 7th tells Kuroda about the situation the village is in. "So I have no other choice than to give into the demands of the Hidden Rock Village and sacrifice my life for the safety of the village," finishes the 7th.

Kuroda is upset and yells, "No, you can't do this Gramps! You can't do this to me! Other than Ichimaru you're the only friend I have. You are the only family I have!" The Koukage reminisces about Kuroda's life.
__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
Kuroda's mother and father appeared in the village with serious injuries. Kuroda was born and both his parents died. Many people objected to the 7th letting the boy stay in the village and to this day are resentful and treat him badly.
__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
"You know that's not true young one," says the Koukage.

"She doesn't count!" yells Kuroda.

The 7th sighs, "I am not going to discuss that with you know, I have something more important to tell you. You must be careful, because when I am gone people will not be as forgiving towards your jokes and pranks. They will use any reason they can to kick you out of the village."

"Then don't do it," pleads Kuroda, "Don't leave!" The 7th leans over and whispers something into Kuroda's ear and then teleports away before Kuroda can respond.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
A woman with long blonde hair knocks on the door to the Koukage's office. "Come in Michiyo," says Konohamaru.

She walks inside commenting, "You know I hate when you call me that."

He chuckles, "Yes I am well aware, but an old dog doesn't like to learn new tricks, especially when he is about to be put down."

"Your being foolish!" says Michiyo abruptly, "There is no guarantee that they won't attack right after you die."

"I must do what I can in order to protect this village and save lives," he replies.

"You will save more lives by being alive!" argues Michiyo.

"I am well past my prime Michiyo," sighs the Koukage, "There are younger, faster, stronger, and smarter ninja that are more useful in battle then me. So I will do what I can do to prevent them from going into battle."

"But the Tsuchikage is…" she starts.

"That's enough," he says sternly, "The decision is made. You cannot change my mind."

"Then why did you summon me here?" she asks.

"You are like a daughter to me. Would you deny me the chance to see you one last time before I go to my final resting place?" he asks.

"Of course I wouldn't," replies Michiyo, "But isn't there someone you should be seeing instead of me?"

"My son made it very clear that he wants no part of this village, and I will respect his wishes," says the Koukage. This hurts Michiyo deeply and she holds her chest. "I'm sorry I didn't mean to…" starts the 7th.

"It's fine," she says.

"However just seeing you is not the only reason I called you here," he says.

"It isn't?" she inquires.

"No, I have made a decision," he states.

"A decision, on what?" she asks.

"Michiyo Katonae from here on forward you shall be known as the 8th Koukage of the Village Hidden in the Petals!" he announces.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
The 7th Koukage officially announces Michiyo Katonae as the 8th Koukage. Then the next day the Tsuchikage comes to sign the treaty and the 7th is executed. Kuroda runs away into the forest for a few days. When he returns Ichimaru questions where he was, but he acts like nothing happened. Soon the final academy exams come and Kuroda and Ichimaru both pass.

Ichimaru is sitting in class the next day waiting impatiently. "Come on where are you?" he wonders in his head.

Sitting a few rows above, Yui tries to hold in her excitement, "I can't wait! I hope I get on the same team as Shun."

"I am the one who is going to be on Shun's team!" says Sakura.

"You better not be!" replies Yui.

"Where are you?" wonders Ichimaru again, not listening to the girls.

Below him Naoko whispers to Rame Tsu, "Why do those two have to be so pathetic? I hope neither of them is on our team."

Rame Tsu replies, "Yeah, but I just hope we get an all girl team, and a wise female sensei too."

"You're almost out of time, where are you?" mutters Ichimaru.

"Where is who?" asks Kenta sitting down next to him.

"Kuroda, he is not here yet," explains Ichimaru.

"I don't know if he is even coming," says Kenta, "I heard he went missing for a few days after the new Hokage was named."

"He did, but I checked the list and he passed the test yesterday. So that means he is back," replies Ichimaru.

"Who is back?" says a voice from behind them. They look around to see a young boy with dark hair.

"Kuroda!" exclaims Ichimaru, "Where have you been?"

"I had some things to take care of," replies Kuroda.

"What…" starts Ichimaru.

"All right everybody quiet down and take a seat," says a man with long dirty blonde hair sticking straight up, "I am Tousen Nohana a Jonin here in the village. I will be dividing you up into your Genin teams and assigning you to your Jonin instructors. Is everybody here?"

The door flies open and a boy with short black hair and white eyes runs in panting, "Did I make it?"

Tousen sighs, "Yes, take a seat." The boy sits down in the nearest seat. Tousen starts, "On Team 1 will be…"

"Who is that kid?" asks Kenta.

"Not sure," says Kuroda.

"That's Jando Hyuga," answers Ichimaru, "He is 2 years older than us. Looks like he finally passed the test though."

"A Hyuga?" inquires Kenta, "Don't all of them have the Byakugan? I thought they were all great ninja's from that clan."

"I don't know," replies Ichimaru, "I guess he is the odd one out."

"On Team 3 will be Sakura Nagana, Kuroda Taishi, and Jando Hyuga," announces Tousen, "Your sensei will be Raj Fujo."

"Awwe man this stinks," comments Ichimaru, "Why didn't they put us on the same team Kuroda."

"I suspected they wouldn't group us together," says Kuroda, "I guess they don't want us goofing off when we are real ninja, but I guess it will be better this way."

"I guess," says Ichimaru disappointed, "But it still stinks."

"Yes!" says Yui doing a fist pump behind them, "looks like you are out of the running Sakura. And you have to be with that goofball Kuroda. Have fun with that."

"I don't know," replies Sakura, "Something seems different about him."

"Like what?" asks Yui.

"I'm not sure, he kind of looks more…serious I guess. To be honest I am sort of attracted to him now for some reason," admits Sakura.

Yui takes a closer look, "There is something different about him, but he still doesn't compare with Shun."

"Team 10 will be Kenta Akamichi, Ichimaru Nara," says Tousen.

"Sweet we are on the same team Ichimaru!" exclaims Kenta.

"And finally Yui Yamanaka," finishes Tousen.

"Ha ha," laughs Sakura, "looks like you got stuck with the other goofball."

"Your instructor will be Yoshikuni Dosu," says Tousen.

Yui sighs, "Well at least I got Kenta. He is decent, plus he always has the best tasting food with him."

"So I guess neither of us gets to be with Shun," says Sakura, "I wonder who the lucky girl will be." More names are called off until there is only one team left.

"And finally team 15 will consist of Shun Kashi, Rame Tsu, and Noako Fei," announces Tousen.

"Well I wanted an all girl team, but at least we got a decent guy," says Noako, "If you can even use that word to describe a guy."

Rame Tsu chuckles and then realizes, "Hey wait a minute, who is our Jonin Sensei?"

"Well my beautiful young kunoichi, that would be me," says Tousen.

"Great our Sensei is a pervert," comments Noako. Tousen falls to the floor in shock.

He recovers and returns to the front of the room, "Your Instructors will be here in a minute to meet with you. Take this time to meet with your team and get to know them better."

"I guess I will see you later," says Kuroda getting up.

"Yeah, maybe we can hang out later and catch up," replies Ichimaru.

Kuroda walks up the steps to meet Sakura. "Hey Kuroda," she says nervously.

"Hey Sakura, let's go over to the corner to meet," he replies.

"Okay," responds Sakura, "Bye Yui."

"Later Sakura," she replies, "Come over to my house later if you are not busy."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Kuroda and Sakura walk over to the corner in silence. "Is there something wrong Kuroda?" she asks, "You seem different."

"Surprised I'm not showering people with confetti or throwing water balloons?" he inquires.

"Yeah kinda," she admits.

He chuckles, "I guess I just decided to grow up and get serious if I want to be a real ninja."

"Cool, I hope our team can do well, and I hope our Sensei is good," she says, "I want to become the strongest ninja I can be."

"Some kids told me you are Sakura and Kuroda," says the boy with white eyes walking up to them.

"That's us," replies Kuroda, "I am guessing you are Jando."

"That's right," he replies.

"Is it true?" asks Sakura.

"Is what true?" replies Jando.

"Do you really have the Byakugan?" she asks.

"Of course I do," he says, "I am from the Hyuga clan."

"So you are my team," says a ninja who drops down in front of them, "I am Raj Fujo, your Jonin instructor."

"It's nice to meet you," says Sakura.

"So I don't feel like playing around so I will just tell you now," says Raj.

"Tell us what?" asks Jando.

"You may think you are Genin now, but you are not," says Raj.

"But we passed the test," argues Sakura.

"That was just the preliminary test," explains Raj, "Now you have to pass my test and I will determine if you are truly worthy of being Genin."

"So what do we have to do for this test?" asks Kuroda.

"Meet me at the Stone of Lost Shinobi tomorrow morning," says Raj, "And bring your ninja gear. You are dismissed."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
They all go home and prepare for the next day. Kuroda does some research and learns about Jando's Byakugan. The next morning Raj describes the bell test and tells them that only two of them can become true Genin.

"You have until the end of the day to snatch a bell," explains Raj, "Ready? Begin!" The test begins and Sakura and Kuroda dash off into the bushes to hide.

"All right, it looks like they have all hidden themselves pretty well," thinks Raj before he looks over and sees Jando still standing in front of him, "…I guess not."

Jando widens his base and gets into a fighting stance. "Umm…what are you doing?" inquires Raj.

"I can't get a bell if I go run and hide. So the only option is to attack," responds Jando as he charges forward, "Byakugan!"

"That is right," thinks Raj as he dodges Jando's first blow, "I forgot this kid is from the Hyuga clan. However his Gentle Fist Taijustu really is not up to par." Jando charges in again, his fingers dart in towards Raj's chakra points intending to disrupt them. Yet Raj casually dodges and slaps the attacks away.

"Technique number one of a shinobi: Taijutsu," comments Raj. Raj seems to have the upper hand, but then Jando lands a strike to the chest. Raj liquefies and his Water Clone is destroyed.

"Water? What the?" exclaims Jando.

"Technique number three of a shinobi: Ninjutsu," says Raj appearing behind the Hyuga boy. Then he kicks Jando in the gut and easily knocks him to the ground. Kuroda creates four shadow clones and launches them into attacks. They sprint out of the forest and attack the Jonin from all sides. Raj is surprised and gets overwhelmed.

"Four clones?" thinks Raj as he defends himself, "I don't remember reading anything about that in the profile. Impressive, he must have been hiding the fact that he could use them."

Raj is knocked backwards away from the four clones and he quickly performs seals, "Good idea Kuroda, however it is not going to be that easy. Fireball Jutsu!" A large ball of fire erupts from his mouth and engulfs the clones. Two of the clones are destroyed, but the other two manage to escape with minimum damage.

"Wow, amazing!" thinks Sakura as she observes from her hiding spot.

"Sorry but I don't need your lessons," says Kuroda appearing behind the Jonin.

"What? How did you…?" says Raj before the young Genin lands a devastating kick to his spine.

The real Kuroda starts performing hand signs as his remaining clones go in for another attack. "Earth Style: Headhunter Jutsu!" announces Kuroda.

"From below?" thinks Raj looking down as he recognizes the Jutsu. However the clones are already on him and one of them throws a punch aimed right for his face. Raj brings up both hands to block it. However Kuroda takes the opening and his hands pop up from the ground and grab hold of the Jonin's ankles.

"Damn!" curses Raj. The second clone is fast enough to take out a kunai and cut off the bells before Raj is sucked underground. The real Kuroda pops up and chops the Jonin on the back of the neck knocking Raj into unconsciousness. He receives the bells from his clone and then they disperse into white smoke.
"He ...won?" thinks Sakura as she makes her way out of the bushes, "Kuroda actually did it." Jando walks over and is dumbfounded at what he just saw. Sakura starts realize, "He doesn't even look tired? I didn't even do anything. I can't believe I am so weak compared him."

Jando is angered, "Damn it! How could that guy beat Raj-sensei? He made it look like it was nothing. How come I was not able to get a bell?"

Kuroda says, "So there are only two bells here. That means only two of us can pass. I will give one of you the other bell if you give me something in return."

"What do you want?" asks Sakura.

Kuroda replies, "Well if you really want to become a Genin of this village then Jando, you will have to give me one of your eyes. As for you Sakura, you will have to give me your life." Both of them are taken aback by such a request.

Sakura questions, "What do you mean my life?"

Kuroda explains, "I want you to bend to my will. I want you to follow every order I give without hesitation, even if it means sacrificing your own life. Don't be mistaken though, this doesn't only benefit me. It will let you become very powerful as well. As for you Jando, I think it is clear why I want one of your eyes. The Byakugan is a very powerful kekkei genkai and anyone with it has an upper hand against an opponent." Jando is still contemplating on what it would mean to lose one of his eyes.

Finally Sakura agrees to the terms. Kuroda takes out a scroll and tells Sakura, "Well then just sign your name in blood to bind the agreement." She does. "Jando stay here and watch him to see if he wakes up," orders Kuroda, "Come on Sakura I need to do one more thing."
Then Kuroda takes Sakura to a secluded area and tells her, "All right, now that we are alone, take off your clothes." She hesitates and a surging pain goes through her body. Kuroda tells her, "Did you think this was just a game Sakura? This is real. That pain you are experiencing right now will happen every time you try to disobey me. It is a part of the contract you signed. It is not fatal, but it hurts a lot."

Regretfully Sakura begins to remove her clothes. He has her lie down and then places his hand above her body and scans over her. Once he locates the spot above her belly button he takes out a kunai and carves a symbol similar to an exploding tag into her flesh. Then he makes a few hand signs and pours some of his chakra into the mark. After a minute the mark dims and soon is no longer visible.

Kuroda orders, "You are to tell no one about what I just did. You can redress now."
Sakura puts her clothes back on and they return to where Jando is still standing stunned. Kuroda looks over at Raj and is disappointed to see him still knocked out. He pulls Raj out of the ground and says, "Follow me."

"Where are we going?" inquires Sakura.

"To see the Koukage," he replies.

Team 3 arrives in front of the Koukage's study and they hear the 8th and some female voice talking about Genjutsu. Kuroda bursts open he doors, walks in the room and throws Raj onto the ground. He glances over at the woman standing across from the Koukage. She has long black flowing hair; her eyes are a scarlet red shade. She wears a white blouse that extends past her hips, with black fishnet under it and a one red sleeve. The other arm is covered in white bandages up to the elbow. Her legs are bare save for her tiny red shorts. Kuroda notes her exquisite beauty, but then turns his attention toward the blonde haired woman behind the desk.

The 8th demands, "What in the world happened?"

Kuroda politely replies, "Sakura and I passed the test," and then he throws the bells over to the 8th, "However now we require a new sensei. Raj Fujo just really is not up to par." He looks over at the black haired woman and sees a hint of curiosity in her eyes.

The Koukage starts to yell, "It is not your decision who…"

Kuroda cuts her off, "That woman over there seems like she would be an appropriate replacement. Jando, Sakura, I will see you tomorrow." Then he turns his back and simply walks out of the room. The 8th gets extremely angry and takes it out on Jando and Sakura.
__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
Kenta, Yui, and Ichimaru are walking towards the academy looking exhausted. Kuroda appears in front of them asks, "So did you guys pass your test?"

Team 10 answers proudly, "Yeah, we are all officially Genin."

Kuroda comments, "Everyone in my team passed as well, but our sensei was not qualified so we are getting a new one."

Ichimaru comments, "My sensei is really good and really smart. I've been told that Yoshikuni Dosu is one of top Jonin in the village."

Ichimaru starts to ask, "So what exactly happened with…?"

"Sorry I have to get going," says Kuroda as he turns to walk away, "See you around." Ichimaru is left standing in disappointment.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Meanwhile the 8th Koukage interviewed Jando and Sakura and learned how Kuroda defeated Raj. She also found out about the deal made with Sakura. After that the 8th decided that the Jonin in the room would be the new leader of Team 3 and they would meet for their first mission on the next day.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Sakura, Jando, and Kuroda meet around noon at the three pillars. They waited until their new sensei arrived. She introduces herself, "My name is Kayo Yuhi." She looks at Kuroda, "I'm impressed from what I was told about you, but I expect that all of you will work as a team from now on." Soon Team 3 starts getting assigned missions. The first few missions are the basic D rank ones, but then Team 3 gets a C rank mission.

Kuroda Taishi

Genjutsu Training Arc

Kayo meets with the 8th and discusses the recent mission and Kuroda’s questions about Genjutsu. The Koukage tells her to go ahead and teach them about Genjutsu. She also wants Kayo to try and go inside Kuroda’s mind and learn about what happened when he disappeared into the forest, and about the scroll Sakura signed. Team 3 has its first Genjutsu lesson and starts learning the basics. Kayo teaches the team about how to dispel Genjutsu. Then she has them practice the release technique, while she uses a low level Genjutsu on them. Kuroda easily dispels the Jutsu, Sakura has to try harder but eventually does it, but Jando fails miserably. Kayo tells Kuroda to come back later for more difficult Jutsu, because the other two needed more practice on the low level Jutsu. Kuroda decides to do some research about Genjutsu while the others practice.
He returns a few hours later and greets Sakura on her way out. She says she really got the hang of it, but Jando was still as terrible as when they started it. Kayo says she was surprised at how easily Kuroda dispelled the Genjutsu earlier and that she wanted to fully test his abilities. Kayo starts using stronger and stronger techniques on Kuroda, but he is able to dispel them all. Finally she decides to drastically increase the level of her Jutsu, and use her Mind Interrogation Technique on him. While Kuroda tries to deal with the illusions, Kayo walks the pathways of his mind trying to learn his secrets. Kayo is freely able to search throughout Kuroda’s mind up until the death of the 7th Koukage. Then she encounters a mind barrier unlike any that she has seen before. She tries to break through it but is unable. Then suddenly Kuroda walks out from behind the barrier.
He warns her that it is impossible to break, and she could cause serious damage to herself if she continued. Kayo questions how he was able to dispel such an advanced Genjutsu, and how the barrier was created. Kuroda replies that he will grant her access to all the information she wants if she will sign a contract, but she is not allowed to read before signing it. Kayo is at first excited, but then after thinking about it she sees that she could end up in the same situation as Sakura. After debating for a while she decides that it would be worth it to learn how the barrier was made, so she could make her own. She exits Kuroda’s mind and signs a contract in her blood. Then Kuroda tells her to take off her clothes. She hesitates and a surging pain goes through her body. Kuroda tells her that this pain will happen every time she does not follow his instructions. It is not fatal, but it hurts a lot. She takes her clothes off. He takes out a kunai and carves a symbol similar to an exploding tag into her flesh. Then he makes a few hand signs and pours some of his chakra into the mark. After a minute the mark dims and soon is no longer visible. Kuroda tells her to tell no one about what he just did, and to put her clothes back on. Kayo wants to know what he just did, but Kuroda just says he will explain later.
He decides that he wants to learn some more Genjutsu, so Kuroda spends the rest of the night learning some more basic Genjutsu. Kayo reports to the 8th that there was nothing unusual in Kuroda’s mind, and the scroll Sakura signed was only about doing some chores and Jando over exaggerated.

Jealous Jando Arc

A few weeks later Jando is training hard somewhere in the woods when he hears some girls talking about how talented Shun Kashi is and how he makes everything look easy. Jando gets extremely angry that he has to work so hard and he is not even very good. Jando sees Shun and Yui Yamanaka approaching him and laughing loudly. Jando gets extremely angry and challenges Shun to a fight. Kuroda appears and tells Jando that it is stupid and he will loose. Shun ignores Jando and turns to walk away. Jando throws a kunai at him, but he catches it throws it back angrily. Jando attacks with his gentle fist Taijutsu and manages to land a few blows. Shun counters with his Leaf Tornado Jutsu. Jando suffers an extreme amount of cuts and is left lying on the ground. Yui looks at Shun disgusted, and Kuroda comments that he went too far. Shun comments that he was only trying to teach Jando a lesson that he should not attack a stronger ninja especially if he spares him in the first place. Kuroda carries Jando to the Hanabira hospital. He watches as the nurses perform the Mystical Palm Technique to heal Jando’s wounds. A few days later while visiting Jando, Kuroda catches a Nurse called Emi in Body Freeze Jutsu and is able to make her sign one of his contracts.

"The objective of this mission is to escort a politicians two sons to a private estate where their mother lives," explains the Koukage, "Come on in boys." The doors open and two boys roll in, fighting each other.

"Take it back Enji!" says the one with dark black hair.

"Never!" shouts Enji who sports light brown hair, "I won't take it back Nobuo."

"We have to escort these brats?" complains Jando.

"Hey who are you calling a brat?" shouts Enji.

"Good luck," says the 8th with a devious smirk across her face.

"All right let's go you two," says Sakura.

"Shut up ugly!" responds Nobuo as he sticks his tongue out at her.

"Why you little…" shouts Sakura stomping over preparing to punch the young boy who is still entangled with his brother.

"Sakura, those are our clients," comments Kayo, "You can't attack them."

"Sorry sensei," says Sakura.

"Well what are we supposed to do with them?" asks Jando.

"Do with us? We are not animals you know!" says Enji.

"If you don't want to be treated like animals then stop acting like them," comments Kuroda as he picks up both of the boys by the back of their shirts and throws them over his back.

"Hey let me go!" shouts Nobuo as he struggles to get free.

"Sorry, but you are just going to have stay there until we get to our destination. Let's go team," says Kuroda.

"Well that was easy," remarks Sakura.

"He can only do that because he is so tall," complains Jando as he walks after them.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Later on in the mission the group is traveling on a road. Kayo made Kuroda set the brothers down since they were behaving well, but it is now looking like a bad idea. They have started to fight each other again and they are becoming so loud that a group of bandits can hear them from miles away. "Those brats are way too easy to track, this is going to be a piece of cake," remarks one of the bandits.

"What about the guards?" asks another bandit, "It looks like there are four of them."

"Who cares? We outnumber them 5 to 1. It will be a piece of cake," comments another bandit.

"Okay let's attack now then," suggests another.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"Will you two please stop fighting, you are hurting my brain," says Sakura as they pass by a stream.

"Mine as well," secretly thinks Kayo.

"How much longer until we get there?" asks Jando.

"You are so wrong!" yells Nobuo ignoring the ninja's comments.

"I am right! You are the one who is wrong!" argues Enji.

"I said be quiet!" yells Sakura.

"Sakura look out!" screams Kuroda as he runs toward her. A large bandit swings a sword down upon Sakura, but Kuroda makes it in time to halt the blade with his kunai.

"We are surrounded!" yells Jando who has activated his Byakugan, "Those brats were so loud it is no wonder they snuck up on us."

"Sakura, guard the boys!" orders Kayo. Sakura runs over towards the boys, but a bandit charges at her. Kuroda is able to toss the one who he was fighting with, so he crashes into the attacker. Team 3 starts to engage the other bandits. Nobuo and Enji are frightened and start backing up when then bump into a very large bandit.

"Hi there boys," says the bandit in an evil voice.

"Sakura help!" screams Nobuo, but she is engaged with another bandit. Two smaller bad guys appear around the boys.

One of comments, "You two are coming with us!"

"Not while I am around," says Kayo appearing in mid-air. Her flowing black hair looks dazzling as she spins around and slams her foot into the heads of the smaller bandits.

"Nice moves for a sexy woman such as yourself," says the larger bandit as he catches and restrains her, "Maybe I'll take you too."

"Not likely," says Kayo.

"What the hell I can't move my body!" exclaims the bandit.

"That is because I caught you in my Genjutsu," explains Kayo as she easily slides out of his grip, "It's called the Body Freeze Jutsu. How do you like it?"

"Damn you, you ;););););)!" yells the large man.

"Next time you should plan more carefully before you attack Leaf Ninja," says Kayo before slashing his neck with a kunai.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Meanwhile Sakura has been backed up against a tree by her opponent. He brings his sword up and slashes horizontally. The attack connects, but Sakura's body turns into a log. "What the heck?" exclaims the surprised bandit.

"I am a ninja of the Hidden Petal Village," says Sakura proudly as she appears in the air above.

"Why you little…!" says her opponent swinging upwards, but only connecting with an illusion.

"You didn't think it was going to be that easy did you?" taunts Sakura as she slams her kunai into the ninja's gut. He collapses and Sakura places her hands on her knees, breathing heavily from her effort.

"Good work Sakura," says Kuroda walking up to her.

She looks around to see a few bandits dead on the ground. "Where did the rest of them go?" she asks.

"They ran away like cowards," comments Jando walking to them.

"No, they retreated," corrects Kuroda, "A wise choice on their part. I guess they weren't informed that the boys would be guarded by ninja."

"I still think they are cowards," says Jando.

"Don't worry," says Kayo as she examines the two brothers for injuries, "I have no doubt they will be back. You can prove your skills then."

"I am fine!" shouts Enji tugging his arm away from the scarlet eyed Jonin.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"Hurry up you two," says Jando later on in the day as the group travels down the banks of a river.

"I am tired," whines Enji.

"I am hungry," adds Nobuo.

"All right, let's take a break then," announces Kayo.

"What? Why?" questions Jando.

"Are we really going to stop sensei?" asks Sakura.

"Yes we are," confirms Kayo, "When you are traveling with other people you need to take their needs into consideration. We are ninja; we have the ability and training to keep going for a long time. These boys are just regular people. Their bodies cannot handle the same things as us."

"I understand now," says Sakura.

"We will stop over there," says Kayo pointing over to a secluded grove, "Kuroda please set up a perimeter."

"Yes Kayo-sensei," he responds.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Sakura starts up a fire so that they can cook a meal for the two hungry boys. Kuroda keeps lookout from high in the trees.

"Wow this is really good Sakura, where did you learn to cook like this?" asks Jando when the meal is prepared.

"Kuroda taught me," she replies.

"Since when does Kuroda know how to cook?" questions Jando.

"Well he has been living on his own for a long time," explains Sakura, "So it is only natural that he knows how to cook for himself."

"I thought you guys were ninja," says Enji, "Since when do ninja have time to learn how to cook?"

"They only recently became Genin, or considered as full-fledged ninja," explains Kayo, "And besides that it is not like ninja are on missions every moment of every day. We do get some free time."

"Yeah, but this food is a lot better than something an amateur could just cook up," comments Nobuo,
"It takes time and dedication to learn to cook this good."

Sakura blushes, "Well thanks, I have been working hard and I guess this means it has paid off."

"I do a lot of reading in my free time," comments Kuroda from above, "and I got tired of eating bad food all the time. So I just took out a lot of cook books from the village library and taught myself how to cook better. I made a meal for Sakura one time, and she liked it so much that she asked me to teach her."

"Since when are you an expert on cooking?" comments Enji.

"What did you say?" replies Nobuo.

"You heard me scardy cat!" taunts Enji.

"Take it back!" shouts Nobuo.

"Oh great, not again," sighs Jando. The boys jump at each other and wrestle around on the ground.

"Why should I?" replies the brown haired youth.

"Because it is a lie!" argues Nobuo.

"No it isn't you are a scardy cat. You were so scared of those bandits back there that you were shaking!" yells Enji.

"Shut up! You were scared too!" counters the black haired boy.

"That is a lie!" yells Enji.

"You were right next to me shaking like a little girl," taunts Nobuo.

"All right that is enough you two," says Kayo breaking apart the fight, "You are going to give our position away again."

"I hate you Enji, and I never want to see you again!" yells Nobuo.

"Good because I never want to see you again either!" shouts Enji.

"Fine, I am out of here!" announces Nobuo before he runs off into the forest.

"Good then I will go this way!" yells Enji before running off in the opposite direction.

"Umm….what the heck just happened?" asks Sakura scratching her head.

"Damnit, now we have to go find them, and it is going to get dark in a few hours," says Jando, "I'll go after this one."

"Jando wait a minute, don't go off on your own," says Sakura as she heads after him.

Kuroda jumps down from the tree and lands next to his raven haired master, "What do you want to do about this sensei? You can take care of yourself, so do you want me to head after them?"

"No I want you to come with me," says Kayo as she pulls out a scroll from her pouch, "The area that Enji is headed towards is very dangerous terrain. We need to find him before he hurts himself. I'm sending a message to Sakura to meet us back here once they get Nobuo."

"Okay," he replies. A small mechanical bird pops out of the scroll when Kayo pours chakra into it. The bird flies off after she attaches a message and winds up the bird it flies off.

"Let's get moving," she says.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
The mechanical bird catches up to Sakura and lands on her shoulder. Sakura takes a note from the bird's leg, and then it poufs into smoke. "What is that?" asks Jando as they run through the forest.

"A message from Kayo-sensei," says Sakura as she reads the note, "She says to meet back at the grove when we find Nobuo. Have you spotted him yet?"

Jando looks around with his Byakugan trying to find the boy, "Yeah, I just found him. He is up ahead about a hundred meters."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"Stupid Nobuo," mumbles Enji picking up a rock and chucking it. There is a thud and then a scary growl. A large bear stumbles out of the trees with a large lump on its head and an angry expression on its face. "Uh-oh, help! Somebody help!" shouts Enji. The bear stalks toward him.

"Body Freeze Jutsu!" announces Kayo. The bear becomes frozen, unable to move. Kuroda jumps down and grabs Enji and then leaps back into the trees. Kayo releases her Jutsu when Kuroda lands next to her. "Good work," she compliments.

"Put me down!" demands Enji.

"Oh, so you would rather that the bear has you?" teases Kuroda.

"No, I'm sorry," replies Enji.

"Good because if you run off again then I won't save you," threatens Kuroda.

"We should head back and see if Sakura and Jando were successful," comments Kayo.

its fine just you know female and yea but still is it his job???

Kuroda Taishi
07-02-2009, 04:42 PM
...Meanwhile Nobuo is in another area of the forest stomping his foot on a log. "Dumb Enji, he always has to be right," mumbles Nobuo.

"Well, well isn't this convenient," says a bandit as he picks up Nobuo by the collar, "We were just about to decide how to attack and capture you, but then you decided to come to us."

"Yeah, but where is the other one?" asks another bandit, "It is a packaged deal."

"Let me go!" says Nobuo.

"Shut up you brat," says one of the others before he punches the boy in the gut.

"We can use this one as bait and set up a trap," suggests the one holding Nobuo.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"Damn, they got to him before us," says Jando as he observes with his Byakugan.

"We should pull back," advises Sakura.

"What are you talking about? We have to go save him now, or else we might not have another chance," says Jando, "Besides they are only ordinary bandits, we can take them."

"I don't know Jando, there are a lot of them," replies Sakura.

"We can do it," argues Jando, "Look, I will go in first and distract them. Then you come in and get Nobuo."

"Okay, I guess that sounds like a good plan," says Sakura.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"So how should we set up this trap," asks a small member of the bandits.

"It needs to be good, because they are ninja," says tall skinny bandit, "They won't be fooled easily."

"You got that right!" shouts Jando as he lands in the middle of the group and starts his assault.

"They found us," yells the bandit holding Nobuo captive, "Watch out for the other three!"

"Wrong, I am all alone!" announces Jando as swipes the feet from under the closest enemy, "I don't need them to take…" The tall and skinny bandit sneaks up behind Jando and chops him on the back of the neck, knocking him unconscious.

"Why didn't you just kill him?" asks the smaller bandit.

"Because now we have another hostage to use as bait," he replies.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"Damn! Jando got captured," thinks Sakura as she hides in a tree, "I can't rescue them on my own. I need to go back and regroup with sensei and Kuroda."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"Somebody is approaching," announces Kuroda.

"Who is it?" asks Kayo looking up to the tree he is in.

"It is Sakura," he replies, "But she is alone. Jando and Nobuo are not with her." Sakura arrives in the grove looking winded.

"What happened Sakura? Where is Jando?" asks Kayo.

"We were able to find Nobuo, but the bandits had already captured him," explains Sakura while she catches her breath, "Jando rushed in and got captured as well. I retreated back here to tell you."

"Good choice, if you didn't come back we would have been in a big jam," says Kuroda.

"So what are we going to do?" asks Sakura.

"Well if they are smart, they probably changed their location. So we have to track them down first," comments Kuroda.

"That part is easy," says Kayo.

"What do you mean sensei?" asks Sakura.

"Well since you came back here I assume you got the message I sent you," says Kayo.

"Yeah I did," says Sakura.

"I get it now," comments Kuroda.

"Get what? I don't understand," says Sakura a bit confused.

"Sakura didn't you find it a bit strange that the mechanical bird was able to find you so quickly?" asks Kuroda.

"Yeah, that was pretty lucky," admits Sakura.

"It was not luck," explains Kayo, "My device found you by keying in on your chakra. Since we are a team and will be for a long time, I took samples of your chakra and exposed each of them to a specific device. So the birds are able to track you if the team is separated."

"I get it now," exclaims Sakura, "and since the bandits captured Jando we can use a bird to track where they took him and Nobuo."

"Exactly," says Kayo, "There is a possibility that they split them up and took them to separate locations, but we will have to deal with that if it comes up."

"So what is the plan of action then sensei?" asks Kuroda.

"Well they will most likely be setting up a trap, on the basis that we will be attempting a rescue. Either that or they will attempt to trade Jando for Enji so they can get a better ransom," states Kayo.

"Why don't we just leave them both behind?" suggests Enji.

"Are you serious?" exclaims a disgusted Sakura, "You're willing to leave your brother behind with a bunch of bandits?"

"Who cares about him?" replies Enji.

"Maybe you are willing to leave a member of your own family behind, but we can't leave Jando behind," Kuroda says harshly, "Not only is he a friend, he is a member of Team 3, and a Leaf Ninja. If you can say one thing about the ninja of Konoha, it is that we don't leave our comrades behind."

"Yeah, that is right!" adds Sakura.

"Fine then, one of you go and save your friend while the other two escort me to my home," replies Enji.

Kayo squats down in front of Enji and looks at him right in the eyes, "You are angry at your brother, and with good reason. However that anger is not going to last forever. He is still your brother, and always will be. If you leave him behind now you will regret it for the rest of your life."

"I guess you are right," replies Enji.

"So how should we do this?" repeats Sakura.

"Well if they want Enji, then we will just give Enji to them," announces Kayo, "How is your transformation Jutsu Kuroda?"

"I can handle it, but what are we going to do with the real one?"

"I can hide him with my own Jutsu," replies Kayo, "Now let me explain the full plan."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
A while later Team 3 tracks the bandits to a small complex and try to make negotiate for the release of Nobuo and Jando. Kuroda and Enji are disguised as each other. "Well, well, well, we thought you might come to rescue your teammate and the boy," says a bandit as a bunch of them come out of the hideout.

"Actually we are here to make a trade," says Kayo.

"A trade? Well that is an interesting proposal," says a very short bandit, "What were you thinking?"

"We will give you the second boy if you give us back Jando," explains Kayo.

"What? You are selling us out?" screams Nobuo in the arms of a large muscled bandit.

"Looks like you are out of luck kid," laughs his captor.

"So you are selling out your client to get one of your own back?" asks the small bandit.

"He is more important to us," comments Sakura.

"You good for nothing ninja," yells Nobuo, "My mom will have your heads for this!"

"Something seems strange about this," comments a tall skinny bandit, "I don't like it."

"Do you have another proposal then?" asks the fake Kuroda.

"Actually I do," replies the skinny bandit, "I was looking in this useful book I bought the other day, and I figured out who you are. You are Kayo Yuhi of the Leaf Village."

"Yes, what of it?" asks Kayo.

"The bounty on your head is at least double what we would get for ransoming these kids. How about we give you both of these boys in exchange for you?"

"It is a deal," she replies.

"Wait, Sensei that was not part of the plan," says Sakura.

"Sometimes you have to alter your plan," says Kayo.

"You there, the other little rich kid. You go over and tie up her hands nice and tight, then we will do the exchange," says the skinny bandit. The fake Enji follows the orders.

"What is Kuroda doing?" thinks Sakura, "I guess he caught on to sensei's plan. I will just have to trust them."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
A few moments later the 3 three people walk across to the opposing sides. The large muscular bandit puts Kayo in a bear hug and laughs, "This was a great idea. We will get a ton of money for her, and maybe we can have some fun with her first."

"Maybe another time," says Kayo smirking.

"What was that?" asks the bandit. Suddenly Kayo's body starts to disappear starting from the bottom up. Her captor tries to hold on, but her from disappears from his grasp.

"She vanished!" yells the smaller bandit.

"It is a ninja trick!" shouts the tall skinny bandit, "Get the others before they can escape!"

"Sakura, Jando, get the boys to cover!" yells Kuroda as he turns back into himself and prepares to fight.

"What the hell?" yells one of the bandits.

"What is this?" yells another.

"I can't get free!" yells the smaller bandit. Trees have start to grow behind every one of the bandits. As the trees grow the branches of the trees wrap themselves around the victims and immobilize them.

"Damn this must be one of her ninja techniques," says the tall skinny bandit as he struggles to get free like the others.

"It is called Tree Capture Death," says Kayo as the top half of her body emerges from the tree right above the bandit, "It is one of my Genjutsu techniques."

"Damn you leaf ninja!" yells the large muscular bandit towards a second Kayo who has appeared above him. In fact every bandit is trapped in a tree, and has a clone of Kayo above them. A kunai appears in all of the copies hands and they all draw back preparing to strike.

"I underestimated you," comments the tall skinny bandit.

"You seemed like the smart one. You should have known better than to take on a Leaf Ninja," says Kayo before swinging her arm down for the final strike.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
All of the bandits collapse on to the ground and then Kayo reappears next to Kuroda. "So that was all Genjutsu?" asks Kuroda, "I couldn't see anything. They all just started freaking out, and then boom they were down."

"It is just a good thing they talked for so long, otherwise I might not have been able to trap them all in it," she replies.

"Wow sensei that was amazing!" yells Sakura running over to them.

"So it was all a trick?" asks Nobuo walking over with his brother.

"You didn't really think we were going to leave you behind did you?" asks Kuroda.
"I guess not," he replies.

"Yeah you totally did," teases Enji.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Team 3 delivers the brothers to their destination, and their mother is happy to see they are getting along.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
On the journey home Kuroda questions Kayo about her Genjutsu. He asks, "Kayo sensei I was very impressed with your Genjutsu. You took care of those bandits so easily. Could you teach us some of the basics? Because it might come in handy in battle."

"Yeah I want to learn to sensei!" adds Sakura.

Kayo says, "I doubt that you will be able to use it, because it requires a certain knack, but learning to defend against Genjutsu is an essential skill for a ninja. So I should teach you about it. We will meet tomorrow and train."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Team 3 arrives home at the same time as Team 15 is returning from their own mission. Naoko and Rame Tsu comment to Sakura, "You are so lucky to have a female leader. Our Jonin sensei Tousen Nohana is completely incompetent, plus he is a total pervert."

Tousen greets Kayo, "Well if it isn't Kayo Yuhi. You're looking ravishing as always. I didn't realize that you had your own squad of Genin. I didn't think you wanted to teach, but I guess things change. It looks like you completed your mission successfully. I myself just completed a tough C-rank mission with my own squad. Maybe we can go out later and celebrate."

However Kayo is not paying attention and says, "I have to go make a mission report to the Koukage. I'll see all of you later for training."

"Bye sensei," replies Sakura.

Tousen gets all depressed and vows, "I will win the affection of the beautiful Kayo Yuhi."

Naoko and Rame Tsu slap their faces and say, "You're so pathetic."

"I am going to train," comments Shun as he walks off.

"Something about that guy just doesn't sit right with me," says Jando.

"You are just jealous because he was the top of the class," comments Sakura before grabbing Kuroda's hand and dragging him off.

"If you want to beat him then you have to train even harder than he does," says Kuroda.

"Not likely," says Rame Tsu, "That kid spends almost every free moment he has training."

"I'll beat Shun and you Kuroda!" vows Jando.

"Good, it seems like the team is doing well," says the 8th after being briefed by Kayo Yuhi about Team 3's latest mission, "Their progression is about in with the other teams from their class."

"After they saw me use some of my abilities they asked if I could teach them more about Genjutsu," reveals Kayo, "Do you think I should begin lessons on that subject?"

"I don't see why not," replies the Koukage leaning back in her chair, "I don't believe they will advance very far, considering their chakra types, but it would be beneficial to learn the basics. Go ahead and do as you see fit."

"Understood, is that all for now?" asks Kayo.

"Actually there is," replies the leader of the village, "Are you familiar with the incident concerning Kuroda after the death of the 7th?"

The Genjutsu specializing Jonin recalls, "When he disappeared into the forest for a few days without any scent or trace, and then reappeared the day of the Genin team assignments?"

"Yes, that is correct," responds the Koukage, "I am still concerned about that and the situation that occurred when Raj was assessing their capabilities. I would like you to use your special Jutsu to see if you can find out what actually happened in both circumstances."

"You want me to use that Jutsu on a Genin?" asks Kayo a little bit puzzled.

"Do you have any problems with that?" replies the Koukage in a commanding tone.

"No my lady, it will be done," submits Kayo.

"Good," says the Koukage satisfied, "That is all, you are dismissed."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"Welcome," greets the dark haired Jonin when Team 3 arrives at her residence for their first lesson in Genjutsu.

"Hello sensei," replies Kuroda.

"Please sit down," says Kayo pointing to the mats on the floor in the center of the room.

"So you are really going to teach us Genjutsu sensei?" asks Sakura as she takes her place, obviously excited about learning. Kayo takes her place in front of the three students on the largest mat.

"Yes, we will be starting with the basics today," she replies.

"Awesome, let's get started then," says Jando. Kuroda remains quiet, but eager for more knowledge on the subject.

"Before you actually begin attempting Genjutsu you must first understand what it is," says their teacher.

"Why do we have to do that?" complains Jando.

"You should always understand concepts before you attempt practical application," comments Kuroda.

"Precisely, now there are three essential parts that something must have in order to be considered human. Those are the mind, the body, and the spirit," says Kayo.

"What in the world does that have to do with anything?" asks Jando.

"Why don't you let her finish before interrupting," says Sakura, "Continue please sensei."

"Thank you, now as I was saying to be human you must have a mind, a body, and a spirit. As a ninja you have an additional part, and that is chakra. Jutsu are the tools that we use to manipulate our chakra," she explains.

"Oh, I get it now," comments Jando.

Kayo continues, "As you know there are 3 types of Jutsu and as some of you may have realized, each one relates to one of those 3 essential parts."

"I'm not sure I understand," says Sakura.

"I will elaborate then," says Kayo, "First there is Taijutsu, this is where a ninja focuses chakra throughout their entire body in order to increase their hand to hand combat abilities. Then we have Ninjutsu, this is where we extend our spirit using our chakra and tap into the natural elements of the world. By forming special seals with our hands we can manipulate the earth, water, fire, wind, and lightning elements. Then finally we have Genjutsu, this is where we use our chakra to affect the mind."

"I see now," says Sakura, "Taijutsu relates to the body, Ninjutsu relates to the spirit, and Genjutsu relates to the mind."

"That makes sense," says Jando.

"As planned, we will be focusing on Genjutsu today," states Kayo, "A Genjutsu works by extending the chakra flow through the cerebral nervous system of the opponent to control their minds chakra, thereby affecting their five senses. The opponent then becomes trapped in an illusion in which the mental pain and suffering is just as deadly as physical pain."

"So it is not real?" inquires Sakura.

"No, but it seems real to the victim," adds Kuroda.

"Yes, your attacker takes partial control of your mind, and your senses tell you that the illusions are real," reveals Kayo, "However in order to use Genjutsu you must have superb chakra control. From what I have observed none of you have the level of control required to be masters of Genjutsu, however you may be able to learn some simpler Genjutsu that can buy you a short amount of time. But we are not going to focus on that yet, instead I will start teaching you how to defend against Genjutsu attacks."

"I don't need defense, I want to attack!" exclaims Jando.

"If you don't want to learn what I am teaching then you are free to leave Jando," says Kayo.

"Fine," says Jando folding to her authority.

"Okay so we will be starting with Genjutsu defense, but before you can defend against it you must know a little more about how it works," says Kayo, "Now I said it affects all five of your sense, which means it can be induced by any one of those senses and it will affect all of them. The most common sense to attack is vision, the caster can activate the Jutsu when the opponent looks at a certain portion of their body. This type has the most variety of techniques, and also the advanced techniques are the most powerful Genjutsu. Next is sound, where the caster creates a certain tone. Then there is smell, the caster makes a distinctive smell that affects the opponent. This type is easy to use, but its power level is the weakest of all of them. Then comes touch, this type is very hard to use because the caster is required to touch the victim's body in order to induce the illusion. Genjutsu induced by touch are the second strongest type. This type has also been adapted for a defensive use. It can be sealed into an object, so that when someone touches the object they are instantly trapped in the Genjutsu. Finally there is taste this is the hardest Genjutsu because it requires the victim to eat something. It is very easy to detect, so most people do not use it, but it can be useful on assassination missions."

"Interesting, I knew that Genjutsu was complex, but I really didn't know just how intricate it was," comments Kuroda.

"I guess that is why there are so few Genjutsu specialists," says Sakura.

"There are a lot more than you think Sakura," warns the raven haired woman, "And there are many ninja who don't specialize in it, but can still use it to great effect."

"Well then we can just defeat them when you teach us the defense methods," says Jando.

"Yes, back on topic," says Kayo, "Now if you have a Genjutsu cast on you there are only four ways to defend against it."

"Only four?" inquires the curious pink haired student.

"Yes, only four," confirms Kayo, "If you are skilled in Genjutsu you can counter attacks, but if you are not a specialist it is best to use one of the defensive methods."

"Okay so what are they?" asks Jando.

"The first option is for the ninja to stop the flow of chakra in their body, and then apply an even stronger power to disrupt the flow of the casters chakra. That may sound like it easy, but you will see that it can be very difficult depending on the level of the Genjutsu. The second option is to have an outside ninja unaffected by the Genjutsu make body contact, and use their chakra to disrupt the casters flow. The third option is to have an outside ninja unaffected by the Genjutsu force the opponent to break the Genjutsu. This is the easiest way to deal with Genjutsu, but if the caster has an ally protecting him then it is smarter to resort to the second option. The fourth option is only to be used when you have no backup to assist you with the second and third options, and when you cannot successfully use the first option. The reason for you lack of success will most likely be that you are low on chakra, or their technique is so advanced that you cannot deal with it. The fourth option is to cause yourself physical pain or injury. This includes causing yourself to bleed by possibly stabbing yourself or breaking a bone. By injuring yourself you change the condition of your mind, since your mental status has internally change the Genjutsu is disrupted and no longer affects you. Now remember, this is a last resort option only. If you use it you must immediately retreat, because it cannot be used two times in a row."

"Good to know," comments Kuroda.

"Now today you will be practicing the first defensive technique I mentioned," announces Kayo, "I will use a low level Jutsu on you, and we will see how well you can do against."

"Okay I will try my best," declares Sakura.

"Yeah, let's do this!" pronounces Jando.

"Are you ready as well Kuroda?" asks Kayo.

"I am prepared," verifies Kuroda.

I like this alot. It's better written and has a better plot (from what you've revealed) than most of these fanfic's. The only thing I can think of is whether or not you want the main character to be relatable to or not. Is he going to go through alot of character development, or is he going to consistently stay as a rape all, serious ninja?

There is character development, but it might take a while.

Also Gama, your pretty smart, so you probably will figure it out sooner than others will, so don't spoil it for them

"Very well then, now step into the realm of serpents," utters Kayo after two quick hand signs.
A hissing sound fills the room and Kuroda looks around to find that hundreds of snakes have abruptly appeared to surround him. Their tongues slip out of their mouths and flicker at him, the animals poised to strike. Many of the snakes have also climbed their way onto his sensei. They cover her voluptuous form, giving her an appearance that would seduce most men. The snakes seem to move with her, declaring her their queen. Kuroda is entranced by her, but then remembers that it is all an illusion. He focuses his thoughts on the task explained to him only a few minutes earlier.

"First I have to gain control by stopping the flow of chakra in my body," Kuroda speaks out loud while performing the action, "Then I have to release enough chakra to disrupt the attacker's chakra." His hands come together and he gathers chakra and then it explodes into a large outward burst when he shouts, "Release!" The snakes vanish and the room returns to its original state.

"Well that was very surprising Kuroda," comments Kayo, "You almost made me release my hold on Jando and Sakura."

"Did you put a separate Genjutsu on each of us?" he inquires.

"That is correct," she replies, "Excellent analysis."

"So what now?" he asks.

"Now we wait and see if the others can get themselves out," says Kayo, "In the meantime you can practice on focusing your chakra and directing it. You were able to free yourself, but a lot of your chakra was wasted because you made it go off in random directions."

"I will refine my technique sensei," replies Kuroda. Sakura has to try harder but eventually does it, but Jando fails miserably and Kayo lets him out after a while.
__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
"Well that was interesting," says Kayo, "Kuroda you can leave and come back in a few hours. I want to try using more powerful Jutsu on you and see how you fare, but we cannot do that with the other two here."

"Why does he get private lessons?" complains Jando.

"Because not only was he able to escape the Genjutsu on his own, he was able to do it after only a few minutes," reveals Kayo.

"Really is that true Kuroda?" asks Sakura.

Kuroda nods as he stands to leave, "I will see you later then sensei."
__________________________________________________ __________________________________
Kuroda decides to do some research about Genjutsu at the library while the others practice.
__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
He returns a few hours later and greets Sakura on her way out. "So how did it go?" asks Kuroda.
"I think I really got the hang of it," replies Sakura, "But Jando was still as terrible as when we started."

"That is not a shocker," he replies.

"Well I am beat, I am going to go home and take a long rest. Good luck with your training," she says before running off.
__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
Kuroda does not see Jando on his way in, and finds his sensei in the same room as earlier. "Welcome back," greets Kayo, "I was surprised at how easily you dispelled the Genjutsu earlier, even if it was just a low level one. If you are ready I would like to test your capabilities more extensively."

"I am ready whenever you are," he replies. "I thought you would say that," she smiles, "Then let us begin. I am going to skip up a few levels instead of going step by step. You might recognize this Jutsu from our recent mission. Body Freeze Jutsu!"

Suddenly Kuroda's entire body feels like it is tightly bound. He tries to shift position, but is unable to.
"I can't move," he asserts.

"I am aware," states Kayo as she sits across from him sipping a cup of tea.

"Is that part of the Jutsu?" he asks.

"No, I was merely feeling a bit parched," she replies with a giggle, "The purpose of this Jutsu is restraint, as you have pointed out. Usually it is not meant for long team incapacitation. The idea is to throw the enemy off, and then strike while they are confused. However for our training purposes it will do just fine. Now you need to focus, before I told you to practice on making all your dispersing chakra go in one direction. Now you also need to learn to detect just exactly how much chakra I have used in my Jutsu. You don't need to overwhelm me; all you have to do is match the amount of chakra I put in. It is wasteful and stupid to use all your chakra when you only need a certain amount to escape. Now focus."

"Why?" asks Kuroda reaching forward to get the extra teacup she had places in front of her, "Oh, you don't mind do you? I was also a little parched and I just assumed the second cup was for me."

"When did you…?" questions Kayo, clearly astonished that he had escaped the Jutsu already.

"Right when you explained I only had to put an equal amount of my own chakra into my dispersal," reveals Kuroda, "I was just going to put a bunch in, but when you said that I suddenly became aware of the exact amount I needed to use. It was very strange."

"Well this is very odd," remarks Kayo, "I can usually tell when a person is more suited to Genjutsu, but I guess everyone is wrong sometimes."

"About the tea…?" he inquires.

"The tea can wait. We need to continue exploring your abilities," she says as she begins to weave hand signs, "This next technique is a lot more advanced than the previous one. Demonic Illusion: Hell Viewing Technique!"
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
And so the process repeats, Kayo starts using stronger and stronger techniques on Kuroda, but he is able to dispel them all. Finally she decides to drastically increase the level of her Jutsu, and use her Mind Interrogation Technique on him. A misty haze surrounds the skilled boy and shadow monsters encircle and attack him. Caught in the fantasy Kuroda charges forward and combats the monsters.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
While Kuroda tries to deal with the illusions, Kayo walks the pathways of his mind trying to learn his secrets. His mind is setup as many crisscrossing hallways, each with many doors. Kayo is freely able to search throughout Kuroda's mind, opening many doors and seeing the memories of his youth. However the doors are in no particular order and the memory fragments are scattered all over the place. She walks around examining things until she encounters a mind barrier unlike any that she has seen before.

She tries to pass through it halts when a yellow electrified field appears. First she attempts to disable the barrier with a few techniques, but is unsuccessful. Then she reaches out her hand to touch the barrier in order to understand it better. Then suddenly Kuroda walks out from behind the obstruction.
"I wouldn't do that if I were you Sensei," he warns walking towards her. She backs away from him nervously allowing him to fully pass on to her side of the yellow static wall. "It is impossible to break though," he says, "And you could cause serious damage to yourself if you attempt to get past."

"Impossible, how are you here?" questions Kayo, "That Jutsu is one of my most advanced Genjutsu, there is no way a Genin could get past it."

"Yet here I stand," replies Kuroda.

Kayo looks at him suspiciously and then returns her attention to the barrier, "What is that barrier and how was it created?"

Kuroda replies, "Impressive isn't it? How about we strike a deal? I will grant you access to all the information you wants if you will sign a contract, but you are not allowed to read before signing it."

Kayo is at first excited, but then after thinking about it she sees, "I could end up in the same situation as Sakura, but I still don't know what that is exactly. I was there when Jando explained to the Hokage that Kuroda said something about following his orders. Yet both Kuroda and Sakura claimed it was a joke. If I sign the contract I could be putting my life at stake. However I would learn all the information that the Hokage seeks, and I can learn what that barrier is and make one in my own mind. I have never seen anything like that barrier, or even something remotely similar. With all my encounters with elite ninja, not one of them has possessed something like it when I entered their mind through the Mind Interrogation Technique."

After debating for a while she decides that it would be worth it to learn how the barrier was made, so she could make her own. "Ok I will agree to sign your contract," she says to the figure in front of her.

"Well then I will meet out there," replies Kuroda.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
She exits Kuroda's mind and returns to her own. When she opens her eyes he is in holding the contract in front of him. "Let me get a pen then," she says.

"Sorry sensei, that will not work," says Kuroda, "You have to sign it in blood."

"A blood contract?" she thinks, "Just what am I getting myself into?" After hesitating she pricks her thumb with one of her teeth and signs at the bottom of the contract in her blood.

"Very good," says Kuroda as he rolls up the contract and places it in his pouch, "Now take off your clothes." She hesitates and a surging pain ripples through her body. If time was slowed and chakra was visible a miniature wave of purple lightning would be seen passing through the woman's body. Kuroda informs her, "That pain you are feeling right now will happen every time you do not follow my instructions. It is not fatal, but it hurts a lot and you cannot stop it." Unable to bear the torture Kayo is forced to strip her clothes off. "All of them sensei," he orders when she stops with her undergarments still on. She takes the rest of them off.

"Lie down on your back please," he requests. She quickly complies, and he walks over to her. He kneels down over her body, and then takes his right hand and scans over her searching for some strange invisible point. He quickly seems to find the correct spot just above her navel. Kuroda takes out a kunai and carves a strange symbol into her flesh. Then he makes a few hand signs and pours some of his chakra into the mark. After a minute the mark dims and soon is no longer visible. "You are to tell no one what has just occurred today," orders Kuroda as he stands up, "Oh and you can put your clothes back on."

"What have you done to me? What was that contract, and what was that ritual you just preformed?" asks Kayo angrily as she redresses herself.

"I will explain it all in due time, but first we have a few more things to go over," he replies.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Kuroda sets more advanced rules in place for what Kayo can and cannot say and do. After that he decides that he wants to learn some more Genjutsu, so Kuroda spends the rest of the night learning some basic Genjutsu attacks.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
The next day Kayo reports to the 8th that there was nothing unusual in Kuroda's mind, and the scroll Sakura signed was only about doing some chores and Jando over exaggerated. Life moves on with more missions and more training form Team 3.

KURODA PLEASE POST A CHAPTER TODAY!!!*puppy eyes with little tears begining to form*

Kuroda Taishi
07-03-2009, 06:55 PM
A few weeks later Jando is training hard somewhere in the woods. Kuroda is sitting high up in the branches of a nearby tree watching the training and munching on an apple. "The technique overall is not that complicated," thinks Kuroda as he spies, "However without the Byakugan I would have no idea at all what effect I am having on the enemy. I was thinking I might add it to my repertoire, but there is really no point if I can't use it effectively." He lies back and starts to stare up at the clouds when he hears two girls talking very loudly. The girls seem to be unaware that anyone else is in the area.

"These are great flowers," says a young blond girl.

"Yeah they are perfect," says her red head companion.

"Do you think he will like them?" asks the first girl.

"Oh yeah, totally," assures the second. Jando tries to ignore their voices and focus on his training. Kuroda still lays up in the tree branch deep in thought. The girls keep up their conversation becoming louder as they get closer. Jando becomes more and more irritated, but tries to keep his concentration.

The girls are now extremely close by when the blond one comments, “I just love Shun so much. He is so talented and so cool.”

“I just know he will love your flowers,” says the red head, “He will definitely go out with you.”

“I know it is going to be amazing. He is the most talented Genin in the village,” replies the blonde, “No other Genin even comes close!”

“Damn that guy getting all the glory and praise,” says Jando in frustration, “He has it so easy because he is naturally gifted. He doesn’t have to work half as hard as I do!” He angrily moves into a complex set of moves, making the sweat drip more profusely from his forehead. He attempts another step, but his feet trip up and he falls on his face. He gets up to his knees and pounds his fist on the ground in frustration.

Some more voices start coming through the woods from the opposite direction. As they get closer Jando starts to recognize them and when they step into the open space he sees they are coming from Yui Yamanaka and Shun Kashi. In his anger Jando stands up and yells, “Hey Shun get over here I challenge you to a match!”

Surprised by the sudden challenge Shun responds, “Look I’m not really in the mood to fight today and besides I am pretty busy at the moment.”

“Get over here you coward!” yells Jando.

“What did you say?” responds Shun angrily heading closer.

“I called you a coward!” says Jando walking to meet him, “Now fight me!”

Kuroda drops down from the tree and lands in between them. “Stop this Jando, you are not strong enough to take on Shun yet,” he says.

“Kuroda when did you get here?” questions Yui.

“He has been here the whole time,” comments Shun.

“Get out of my way Kuroda,” orders Jando, “I am going to take this guy down!”

“I don’t have any interest in fighting someone of your level,” states Shun, “You should listen to your teammate and challenge me when you get stronger. Come on Yui let’s get out of here.” He and Yui turn and start to walk away.

“Don’t walk away from me!” yells Jando as he pushes past Kuroda and takes a kunai out and throws it at the back of Shun’s head. Shun quickly turns and easily catches the kunai in between his fingers.

He twirls it around and hurls it back at Jando saying, “You should be more careful with that. If you just throw it around you could hit someone like Yui on accident. Now listen to Kuroda’s advice and step down.”

The tone of Shun’s voice pushes Jando to the edge. He activates his Byakugan and charges as Shun turns around again. He lunges forward with his right hand, Shun senses the attack and tries to turn around but Jando ends up landing a few strikes to his chest. Shun lowers his level and lands a lightning fast shot to the gut. Then immediately follows it up with a heel kick that connects right into Jando’s chin and sends him flying. Jando hits the ground and tumbles backwards a bit until he regains his composure and is stabilize himself in a three point stance.

In the meantime Shun has been making hand signs for a Jutsu. “You wanted a fight with me, then I will show you a real fight,” says Shun, “Leaf Tornado Jutsu!” Kuroda leaps back up into the trees sensing the incoming attack. As he does some of the leaves begin to drift away from their branches float towards Jando.

“What kind of Jutsu is this?” questions Jando as his Byakugan allows him to see the chakra start gathering around him. With Jando as the central point the leaves start to swirl around him, moving faster and faster while constricting. Kuroda observes as leaves become so fast that there is a tornado of green from the leaves and white from Jando’s clothes. Then a deep red color is added to the mix before all of the leaves suddenly drop harmlessly to the ground. Jando is revealed and his clothes are torn to shreds and his body is covered in blood.

He starts to fall to the ground, but Kuroda steps in catches him before he falls down. Yui shrieks, looks at Shun in disgust, and then runs off. “You went too far this time Shun,” says Kuroda as he checks for a pulse.

“I was just teaching him a lesson,” replies Shun, “He should not attack a stronger ninja especially if he spares him in the first place.”

“Still you could have just ruffed him up a bit, you didn’t have to go this far,” says Kuroda.

“This was faster and more effective,” states Shun, “Besides I didn’t even use the full power of the Jutsu.” Shun sticks his hands back in his pockets and walks off.

“Not full power? Very interesting,” thinks Kuroda as he picks up Jando and starts to carry him to the Hanabira hospital.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
“Woah what happened to him?” exclaims a nurse when Kuroda walks through the hospital entrance.

“It was a training accident,” explains Kuroda, “Luckily I was close by and found him only a short while after it happened. But he does need immediate care.”

“Put him on this stretcher,” orders another nurse running up, “We will treat him right away.” Two more nurses rush up and after Kuroda lays Jando on the stretcher they start to take him away.

One of the nurses jumps onto the stretcher and kneels on top of Jando saying, “Mystical Palm Technique!” Kuroda observes as a green aura surrounds her hand and then she places it near a cut in his chest and it starts to heal.
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
Kuroda is leaning up against one of the walls on the second level of the Hanabira Hospital waiting for a certain woman to come by. He has already memorized her daily route and knows that she will be passing by in a few moments unless some medical emergency occurs. "Just as expected," he thinks as he sees the woman approaching.

She is a very plain looking young woman in her early twenties. She has her brown hair in tied up in a neat ponytail, and wears a standard formfitting white nurse’s uniform. Kuroda pretends to be reading an old romance novel as she approaches. "Excuse me miss, I was wondering if I could speak to you for a moment," says Kuroda politely as she passes by.

"Oh did you need something?" she inquires as she turns to face him with a smile.

"Well I've been feeling a little strange lately, and I have developed a strange rash in an umm... private area," he explains pretending to be shy, "It is kind of embarrassing and I don't want anybody to find out. So I was wondering if you could examine me in a discrete manor."

"Oh yes I understand completely," she says becoming a little red in the face.

"So are you free right now? Is there some place nearby where you could take a look at my rash?" asks Kuroda.

"Oh yes, there is a room right down the hall that we can use. Follow me please," says the nurse as she begins to lead the way.

"Perfect, she is even headed to the room that I predicted," thinks Kuroda as he silently follows. As they walk the hallway seems to be completely empty save for them. Kuroda glances out the open windows and comments, "It is a wonderful day outside isn't it?"

"Yes I'll be going out for a picnic lunch with some of the other nurses later," she replies cheerfully.

"Well that sounds pleasant, it is always good to take a break from work and enjoy the nice weather," he responds.

"Yes it is," she says. They make it to the end of the hallway and then turn right into a small corridor. They walk a bit and then the nurse opens the last door on the left. "In here please," she requests. Kuroda walks inside and looks at the glass sliding door with a large smirk. The nurse closes and locks the door and then walks over to close the drapes. "A little more privacy is needed I think," she says, "If you will please disrobe so I can take a look at the rash..."
__________________________________________________ ____________________________________
"Uhh, what happened?" says the nurse as she slowly opens her eyes and puts her hand up to her throbbing head. When her vision becomes clear she sees the young man from earlier standing in front of her, but she is confused because they seem to be outside now. Suddenly the ground drops out from under her and then her mind becomes sharp again and she is able to take in her full surroundings. She is hovering over the middle of a large canyon. She is being held out in the air by only the collar of her dress. The person holding her is standing on the long branch of a tree that sticks out to the middle of the canyon. He is dressed in black and seems to be contemplating something.

"Well that was slightly convenient, but unexpected," thinks Kuroda, "She passed out for a while after I got her here. I guess her body wasn't able to handle that many consecutive transferences with almost no stopping time. Either that or......anyways I'll do some testing later with Sakura, but for now I will take care not to do it for safety reasons."

"Do you know who I am?" asks Kuroda, finally seeming to remember that he is holding the nurse in his hand.

"You're........the boy from the hospital," she says in a frightened tone.

"Not the answer I was looking for, but it will do," Kuroda comments, "Now what is your name?" The nurse is too scared to give a response. A heavy gust of wind blows and violently ruffles the nurse's dress. Her hat is blown from her head, but Kuroda easily plucks it out of the air with his left hand before it falls out of reach. He tucks it into the back of his pants and says, "I don't know if you have noticed yet, but it is a long way down to the bottom of this canyon and on the bottom sit a thousand jagged rocks. Even if you were a skilled Jonin it would be nearly impossible to survive such a fall. Now I am strong, but even I have my limits. The more time you waste by not answering my questions the more the chances of me accidently dropping you. So please tell me, what is your name?"

"My name is.......Emi," she stutters.

"See now wasn't that easy?" he replies, "I am Kuroda it is nice to meet you Emi. How are you feeling?"

"Scared," she stutters.

"The natural reaction. It means you have regained full consciousness and don't seem to be suffering any mental damage," says Kuroda.

"Why are you doing this?" Emi asks.

"Ahh, the exact thing I was going to talk about next," he says, "You Emi have something I need."

"Something you need?" she questions.

"Do you value your life?" Kuroda inquires.

"I don't want to die," she pleads, "I haven't done anything to you. Please, why are you doing this?"

"You have something that I need. When I determine that I need something I will do nearly anything in order to get it," he says.

"What do you need?" she asks, "I'm not very wealthy and I don't have many possessions, what could I possibly have that you need?"

"You misunderstand. I don't want any object you have, I want your skill. I was the one who brought in the Hyuga boy earlier this week and I watched as the staff healed all of those nasty cuts," explains Kuroda, "I was watching very carefully the entire time and I noticed that while you weren’t the or the best healer you were very talented. In order to achieve my goal I may need medical treatment and thus I determined that I needed your abilities."

"So you have some sort of Jutsu to steal my abilities away from me?" she asks.

"Again you misunderstand," he says, "I don't want to take your abilities away from you; I want you to use them for me. I will undoubtedly get into situations where I will be injured and need to conceal my injuries from the the elders of the village. Thus I will require someone who can competently and discreetly heal any wounds I sustain. And that person I am hoping will be you."

"I don't understand, why are you doing all of this then? You could have just asked me," she says.

"Don't be so simple minded. I can't simply rely on the ability of even my most trusted friend to not tell the elders what I am up to. Additionally I can't count on anyone’s ability to resist the village interrogation unit. The only way for absolute secrecy is to get my allies to sign over their lives to me," he explains.

"I don't understand," says Emi.

"I will put it in simple terms then," says Kuroda, "There is a contract in my back pocket. Either sign it or I will let go and you will fall to your death."

"Please no," she pleads, "I am just...." Kuroda lets her clothes slip a bit out of his hands, but makes sure not to let go completely.

"Next time I won't hold on," he warns, "Choose now: Live or die!"

"I want to live!" she screams, "I'll do anything you want."

"Hold out your right palm," he orders. She hesitantly complies, but when she does Kuroda takes out a kunai with his left hand and in a lightning fast motion creates a small cut on her palm that starts to leak blood.

She winces from the pain, but doesn't make a sound. Kuroda stores his kunai away and then reaches into his back pocket to get out the contract scroll. He unrolls it in front of her and orders, "Sign your name at the bottom." Emi curls her hand into a fist and then reaches out with a bloody finger to sign her name. As soon as she is finished another heavy gust of wind comes along and threatens to tear the contract and her out of Kuroda's hands. He is able to hold on until the wind subsides and quickly rolls up the contract and tucks it back into his back pocket.

"Take my hand," he says reaching out towards her. She hastily grabs hold and he yanks her back on to the tree branch. Then he picks her up by knocking her knees out from under her and runs the length of the tree branch before jumping down to the ground and setting her down.

"So what happens now?" she asks warily.

"Now you will need to disrobe," he says. Knowing that her life now belongs to him Emi silently reaches down and pulls her dress up over her head. "I appreciate that you are being so cooperative. It really is a smart thing to do as I don't you will want to experience what happens of you don't comply," says Kuroda, "Oh and remember to take everything off and when you are done please lay your back down on the grass."

Emi silently follows the instructions and once she is on the grass Kuroda kneels next to her. He places his hands a few inches above her body and begins to concentrate. He quickly finds the spot he is looking for right below her belly button and takes out a kunai. "Please lay still this will only hurt a bit," he orders. He lightly cuts into her skin and carefully carves a special seal into her body.

Once the process is complete he stores his kunai away, makes hand signs, and starts funneling chakra into the seal. The seal glows a deep yellow color and then dims until it becomes invisible and it looks like no cutting ever occurred. Kuroda stands and says, "You may redress now."

Emi runs a hand over her belly looking astonished and comments, "I have never seen that kind of healing Jutsu before."

"It is not a healing jutsu it is just a convenient side effect of the seal," explains Kuroda, "Please hurry and redress we will need to return to the hospital quickly so as not to arouse suspicion. Ohh and heal the cut on your palm." Emi slips back into her nurse outfit and then heals her cut.

When finished Kuroda has her wipe the blood on her dress before she tidies up her hair. As he hands her back her hat he says, "If anyone asks the blood is from the rash of mine you were looking at."

"Okay I got it," she replies.

"Now if you will please do me the honor of giving me a hug," he requests. She slowly walks over and embraces him. "Hold on tight and take a deep breath," he says as he grips her securely and looks for the special kunai he left in a tree near the forest line. He uses his Flying Thunder God Technique to retrace his leaps from his carefully placed kunai so they arrive back in the small hospital room they came from.

Snow Country Arc

After a few more D rank missions Team 3 is sent on a C rank escort mission to the land of Snow. A freighter full of food is being shipped to the land of Snow and would like some protection from the recent elevated pirate attacks on the route. Team 3 and Team 10 are both ordered to make sure all the goods and crew arrive safely. They journey to the port where the ship is docked, and Ichimaru tries to renew his friendship with Kuroda.
Kuroda takes this time to have a serious conversation with his old friend about his life in the village, his teammates, and the future. Team 3 and Team 10 arrive at the port and board the ship. Yoshikuni and Kayo talk with the ship’s captain about what they will be facing on the mission. On the second night of the journey five pirate ships appear and attack the freighter. Team 3 and Team 10 are able to repel most of the pirates, but then the leaders come aboard.
Three missing ninja from the Village Hidden Among the Snow are in control of the pirates. They are angry that their attack was being stopped and wanted to know why. They are surprised when they learn that the freighter has hired Petal Ninja to protect it. The leader Taiki a Jonin level ninja attacks the Genin while his subordinates, Funimo a Chunin and Yukiko a Genin engage Yoshikuni and Kayo. Taiki overwhelms Yui, Kenta, and Jando. Then he decides to retreat because Funimo and Yukiko were loosing. While recovering from the Snow ninja attack everyone starts questioning why they are attacking a shipment meant for their own country. Meanwhile Taiki is furious that he was forced to retreat by the Petal Ninja.
It is revealed that Yukiko is an orphan who was taken in by Taiki and feels she has to do his bidding even if she does not agree with it. A few more days pass and the freighter is finally repaired and almost halfway to the country of snow. Yui, Kenta, and Jando are not fully healed, so everyone else has to cover for them. This time Taiki attacks during daylight, and comes out directly to engage the Petal ninja. Taiki and Yukiko take on the Jonins, while Funimo attacks Ichimaru, Kuroda, and Sakura.
“Well, well this is a surprise. I didn’t think they would hire so many ninja to defend a simple shipment of food,” says Taiki. “I think it’s obvious that this shipment of food isn’t exactly little,” retorts Kayo, “But I’m sure you already knew that didn’t you?” Taiki laughs, “Think you got me pegged, do you Petal Ninja?” “Actually we were wondering why a Snow Ninja would be attacking ships that are delivering goods to his own country,” says Yoshikuni. “Ah, if it isn’t Hanabira’s Brown Cobra. I didn’t realize such a famous ninja would be here,” says Taiki. “You seem to have me at a disadvantage, because I don’t exactly recognize you,” replies Yoshikuni. “It seems my former village hasn’t let out the news that I no longer reside with them. No matter, you don’t need to know my name,” replies Taiki. “So you’re a missing ninja then?” asks Kayo. “Yes, and now that I know who you are it will be a good chance for me to test my skills against one of the best.”
“I don’t go around looking for fights, but if you’re going to continue attacking these freighters then I’m going to have to stop you,” says Yoshikuni. Taiki laughs, “Well then let’s get to it,” and then he and Yukiko fling some shuriken at them both. They both dodge, and Yoshikuni counters with his Striking Shadow Snakes. Four snakes are launched out of his left sleeve and wrap themselves around Taiki, while four snakes from his right sleeve capture Yukiko. Kayo moves in close and attempts to use a Genjutsu on him. Before she can Taiki’s body melts into a pool of water. “Hmm, a Water Clone,” comments Kayo, “When did he do that?” “Kayo behind you,” yells Yoshikuni as Taiki rises up from the water behind Kayo with an ice spear in his hands. As Yoshikuni moves to help Kayo he momentarily forgets about Yukiko, allowing her to use her Ice Style: Swallow Blizzard to hurl sharp icicles at him.
Meanwhile Ichimaru has been attempting to capture Funimo with his Shadow Paralyses Jutsu. “Man this guy is tough,” comments Ichimaru to Kuroda and Sakura, “We need to think of a plan.” “You little kids are annoying,” says Funimo as he appears in front of them and lands kicks to there abdomens, knocking them a few feet away. “I’ll teach you what a real ninja can do,” he says.
Funimo knocks out Ichimaru with his Instant Freeze Illusion and then goes after Sakura. Sakura is caught in a trap and then Funimo launches a dead on Swallow Blizzard right at her. This triggers her seal and Kuroda is instantly transported in front of the attack. He easily deflects the attack with a kunai which catches Funimo off guard. Kuroda throws his special kunai at Funimo, and hits him with his Flying Thunder God Technique. Taiki sees this and thinks, “So that one was holding back. I can’t fight all of them at once, so I’ll have to get rid of them one by one. He seems to have a connection with that girl, so ill start with her.”
Taiki makes a Water Clone to help deal with Yoshikuni and Kayo, as he goes after Sakura. “Sakura watch out!” screams Kayo as she tries to make her way to Sakura, but is blocked by Yukiko. Sakura is helpless as she is attacked by Taiki. After knocking her unconscious he throws her into the freezing cold ocean. After easily knocking Funimo unconscious with Taijutsu, Kuroda dives in the water after Sakura.
Yoshikuni lands a punch into Yukiko’s face sending her flying, but Taiki is able to catch her before she falls into the ocean. He looks over to see Kayo slash his clone across the chest with a kunai causing it to loose its form. “It looks like you’ve won this time Petal Ninja, but I’ll be back, and you’ll be down two more ninja,” says Taiki as he picks up Funimo and runs across the top of the water back to a waiting pirate ship.
Ichimaru wakes up and wants to search for Kuroda and Sakura, but Yoshikuni tells him that sometimes ninja loose the ones closest to them, but they have to keep going and complete the mission. Kuroda is able to reach Sakura under the water, but they are caught in the currents and flung deep underwater. Kuroda is able to find a cave inside an iceberg and get Sakura out of the freezing water.
“Good thing I prepared this fire scroll” he says as he summons the flames to keep Sakura warm. He also takes out a heavy coat that he packed and changes Sakura out of her wet clothes, hanging them up to dry. Slowly Kuroda is able to lift the fever that Sakura gets. Meanwhile he leaves a shadow clone to watch over her as he explores the cavern inside the iceberg.
While wandering around looking for an alternate exit he stumbles upon two summoning scrolls hidden behind a series of puzzles and traps. After retrieving the scrolls and returning to Sakura, she is finally able to wake up. “What…what happened? Where are we?” she asks weakly. “Don’t talk, I will explain later, but you need to rest,” says Kuroda, “Here I made some soup, you should eat.”
While waiting for her to recover Kuroda decides to test out the new scrolls he found. So he rolls them out and signs both of the scrolls with his blood and then summons the sacred animals. The first one is a human size mammoth that yawns, “It’s been a long time since I was summoned. I’m called Uthuloxo, who are you?” “I’m Kuroda,” he answers. The mammoth yawns again, “You must be a very skilled ninja to have found my scroll. It was hidden down here a long time ago.” Kuroda uses a second summoning Jutsu for the other scroll and an elephant appears, “Hey, Uthuloxo long time no see. So someone found the scrolls eh?” “Yeah that’s him right behind you Dantoloxo,” says Uthuloxo.
“You? But your only a kid?” says Dantoloxo. “Appearances can be deceiving,” replies Kuroda, “So tell me why exactly did I find your scrolls down in some ice cave under the sea?” “It was those damn Cloud Ninja,” explains Uthuloxo, “They sealed us down here so the Village Hidden Among the Snow wouldn’t be able to use us, and they wouldn’t be able to become a larger power among the villages.” “I see, so you are very strong then?” asks Kuroda. “Just give me someone to fight, and I’ll show you how good I am,” says Dantoloxo.
Yukiko suddenly appears in the cave, “So you were able to get the scrolls out? Taiki and Funimo have been trying to get them for a while now.” “You, how did you get here?” asks Kuroda. “Is she an enemy?” asks Dantoloxo. “Yes, but I can handle her on my own. You two may go,” says Kuroda. “Well then, until you need us,” says Uthuloxo. Two clouds of smoke appear as Uthuloxo and Dantoloxo disappear.
“This cave is in the middle of a giant iceberg, our base is also inside,” explains Yukiko. “I see, but you’re an enemy, why are you not attacking me?” asks Kuroda. “I have a question to ask. Why did you risk your life to save that girl?” she asks. Kuroda explains, “I saved her because she is important to me. She is going to help me accomplish my dreams. I would do anything to protect her.” Yukiko comments, “Taiki would never do anything like that for me. I don’t believe in his dreams.” “Then why are you with him?” asks Kuroda.
“My parents died when I was young. He found me and took me in,” she explains. “So you feel that you have to serve him because he saved you?” he inquires. “Yes,” she responds. “It’s understandable. So tell me, what is he really after? Why is he attacking shipments heading towards the Land of Snow?” he asks. She tells him, “Taiki and Funimo were banished from the Village Hidden Among the Snow. There only goal is to get revenge on the village, so they are gathering supplies and people for an attack.”
“How foolish, he is going about it in the wrong manner,” mumbles Kuroda, “So let me ask you this, what would you do if they were no longer living?” “I don’t know,” she replies. Kuroda tells Yukiko, “I wasn’t planning on it, but I will kill Taiki and Funimo if you will pledge your life to help me accomplish my dreams.” “And what is your dream?” asks Yukiko. “I can only tell you that after you pledge your life,” he responds, “However I can promise you that if you do follow me I would sacrifice my life for yours without hesitation, if you were ever faced with death.” “Those eyes of yours, I can tell your not lying, you meant every word you spoke,” she replies. “So what is your decision?” he asks.
Yukiko agrees and signs one of Kuroda’s blood contracts. She goes through his marking ritual. They wait a few more hours until Sakura has recovered and then she leads them to an above ground exit from the cave. Yukiko takes them to the hiding spot that Taiki and the pirates use, but all ten ships are gone. “It looks like they left for the next attack already,” comments Kuroda, “Sakura and I will go after them, but you have a different mission.” “You don’t want me to come?” Yukiko asks. “No it would ruin my cover, plus I have a more important mission for you. I need you to seek out the strongest female shinobi in the Snow country, evaluate their skills and compile a list for me” explains Kuroda as he gives her a letter, “After you feel you have found all of them send this letter to the Hidden Petal Village and I will come.”
Meanwhile the Freighter is only a few miles away from the Snow Country, and Jando, Yui, and Kenta are healthy again. Ichimaru is depressed that Kuroda threw his life away and does not understand why he would do that for someone he barely knew. Taiki and Funimo attack a third time with ten ships full of pirates. The Genin take on the pirates while the Jonin handle the enemy ninja. Funimo tries to use his Instant Freeze Illusion on Kayo, but she is not affected by the Genjutsu attack. The Genin manage to work together to defeat a majority of the pirates, and they retreat without orders from Taiki. He gets angry and uses his most powerful Jutsu. He summons a giant whale made of ice. He sends his Ice Whale Jutsu to destroy all the pirate ships. Yoshikuni catches Funimo with his Striking Shadow Snakes and then Yui uses her Mind Transfer Jutsu to take control of his body.
Taiki returns his attention to the Petal shinobi and is able to defeat everyone with his Ice Whale and Ice Weapons Jutsus. Kuroda and Sakura arrive on the scene. Kuroda sees that everyone is unconscious and he can use his true abilities. Taiki is furious that they somehow survived and uses his Ice Whale Jutsu; Kuroda throws his special kunai along the sides of the Ice Whale. Then he uses his full Flying Thunder God Technique to appear right to the side of Taiki and stab him in the heart.
Ichimaru awakens first and is stunned to see Kuroda alive, and a dead Taiki. He sees that Funimo is only unconscious and wants to take him as a prisoner. Kuroda stabs Funimo in the heart against his friend’s wishes. When asked why Kuroda replies that people that do not follow their hearts do not deserve to live, referring to Funimo’s goal of revenge on the snow country when he was the wrong doer. The freighter finally arrives in the snow country, and the Village Hidden Among the Snow is relived to receive the corpses of Taiki and Funimo. The journey home is a lot shorter, but Team 10 starts questioning about how Kuroda and Sakura survived, and what happened to the female Snow ninja. Kuroda lies and says that Yukiko decided to save them, then helped kill Taiki, and then ran away.

Training in the Valley Arc

After arriving back in the Hidden Petal village Kuroda reflects on the mission and decides that it would be good to know some healing Ninjutsu. So at nights he secretly has Emi the nurse from the village hospital teach him some basic healing techniques for cuts and bruises. He is able to effectively heal all the small cuts he practices on, but not a lot more than that. After the dangerous mission that Team 3 was just on the Koukage decides that they need some more D rank missions to improve their teamwork. This time they are sent to the Valley Country to take care of the King’s daughter while he goes to some diplomatic meetings with the neighboring Forest Country.
On the way there Kuroda starts to help Sakura out with her ninja skills. He decides to teach Sakura the Shadow Clone Jutsu stating that she needed some more offensive moves. Jando gets jealous and tries to learn the Jutsu on his own. Kayo tries to get Kuroda to talk about what really happened on the Snow Country mission, and he says that he will reveal the happenings to her, but it is not the right time. Team 3 arrives in the Valley country and meets Princess Kyoko who is only a few months younger than Sakura. She is instantly fascinated with Kuroda because of his looks and his serious yet relaxed personality. She is also surprised by his knowledge of formal manors thinking ninja were all ruffians. They quickly become friends, and she stays near him a majority of the time. Jando gets jealous again and tries to get Kyoko to pay attention to him, but she ignores him. Sakura focuses on perfecting her new Shadow Clone Jutsu so she doesn’t disappoint Kuroda. Kayo tries to figure out Kuroda and what his true intentions are. She watches him closely, but he mostly just trains with Sakura, or entertains Kyoko.
Kuroda decides that having the future leader of a nation on his side would be very useful in completing his plan, so he convinces Kyoko to sign one of his blood contracts and performs the seal ritual on her. On the last day of the mission Sakura is able to create one fully functional Shadow Clone, Jando has not gotten any better, and Kayo has not learned anything from watching Kuroda. The King returns to find his daughter in perfect health and in an unusually gleeful state. He is very pleased and rewards Team 3 handsomely. After arriving home the Koukage decides to keep Team 3 on D rank missions for a while longer. After one uneventful day in the village Kuroda is summoned all the way to the Snow Country to defend Yukiko.
Kuroda easily kills a rain ninja that was attacking her, and decides to keep the headband. Kuroda decides to have Yukiko teach him the Ice Weapons Jutsu because it is a rather unique jutsu allowing for great flexibility in tactics. He is able to master the basics in two days. Yukiko has made little progress on her mission and Kuroda decides to have her continue to seek out the strong ninja. He uses his Flying Thunder God Technique to go all the way back to the Hidden Petal village in one day. Apparently no one but Sakura noticed he was gone for three days, and she did not tell anyone.

Attack of the Smoke Arc

Finally Team 3 is given a third C rank mission. This time they must go and pick up a valuable sculpture from a master sculptor and bring it back to its buyer in the village. The buyer decides that he does not need to go with them, because they will move faster without him slowing them down. Team 3 arrives in the master sculptor’s village in a few short days with no problems. Kayo talks with the sculptor and learns that someone has been trying to steal the sculpture.
In the morning Team 3 wakes up surprised to see a heavy mist in the village, which is very unusual for this time of year. While trying to leave the village they are attacked by unknown enemies. They are able to make it out of the village and to a lakefront where they rest awhile.
Kaneo and Bosch of the Smoke Village appear as Team 3 escapes the village. Bosch says to Kaneo, “Can I go after them alone? I don’t think they will be much of a problem, even if I am only a Chunin.” “Sure, go ahead and have fun.” Bosch heads after them and finds them the next day by the lake and confronts the group.
When Kayo does not give him the sculpture, Bosch attacks them with his Water Vapor Reflection Jutsu. At first everyone is confused and accidentally they attack each other. Then Kuroda sees through the Jutsu and is able to disrupt it. Jando is able use his gentle fist Taijutsu on Bosch, and force him to retreat.
While Jando is celebrating his victory Kayo warns her students, “More ninja will come to get the sculpture, be on guard all of you.” The next day Team 3 runs into some bandits, but they are able to defeat them easily using teamwork.
Meanwhile Bosch returns to his hide out and reports to his superior Kaneo. “I’m sorry I failed. I underestimated their strength.” Kaneo laughs, “I knew you would be defeated, but it always better to learn from experience.” “So what is the plan?” asks Bosch. Kaneo explains, “I already started working on it. Im going to lure them into this cave, and we will take them down one by one. Here is the trap setups, finish them up while I go and get our guests.”
Kaneo finds Team 3 by the lake and attacks without warning using his Poison Fog. Kayo reacts quickly and disperses the fog before it can affect the team. Then Kaneo uses his Smog Choking Technique to capture Sakura. He drags her into the forest and forces the others to follow.
They track him to a cave entrance and decide to enter in order to save Sakura. Inside the cave Kaneo gives an unconscious Sakura to Bosch. Jando sees Bosch and feeling confident he goes after him without thinking. The cave collapses behind Jando, so Kayo and Kuroda cannot follow; instead they are confronted by Kaneo. Kaneo uses his Hidden Mist Technique to separate Kayo and Kuroda. Kaneo attacks Kuroda with his Deadly Poison Death Illusion, and leaves to defeat Kayo.
Meanwhile Jando has followed Bosch into a large cavern. Bosch starts attacking with his Poison Fog, but Jando is able to avoid the attacks. In the cave next door Kaneo is able to corner Kayo and seal all the exits. Kaneo tries to use his Deadly Poison Death Illusion on her, but she counters with some of her own Genjutsu.
Meanwhile Kuroda manages to release Kaneo’s Jutsu and wanders around trying to find the others. Sakura wakes up and joins Jando in the battle against Bosch. Bosch manages to catch Sakura off guard with a lucky kunai throw, but her seal is triggered, and Kuroda is summoned to save her. Confused for a moment Bosch decides to cast his Fog Clone Jutsu. In response Kuroda and Sakura each use their Shadow Clone Jutsu’s. Jando tries to use his Byakugan to help out, but it does not work. Kuroda and Sakura attack the Fog Clones, but they are not destroyed when hit.
Kuroda starts to think it might be a Genjutsu when he is summoned to the aid of Kayo. Kayo is in bad shape with some deep wounds, she is confused when she sees Kuroda appear in front of her. Kayo tells him, “My Genjutsu was not effective against him, be careful.” Kaneo is angry and yells, “I don’t know how you escaped my Jutsu, but if you were smart you would have run away.” Kuroda decides to use his Elephant Summoning Jutsu and Dantoloxo appears. Kuroda tells Dantoloxo, “I don’t know how long I’m going to be here, you might have to fight by yourself for a while.” Dantoloxo seems eager, “That’s fine with me; I haven’t been in a fight in a long time, so I need to see if my abilities are still as good as they used to be.”
Kuroda starts a combination attack, but is thrown back by Kaneo’s Smog Choking Technique. When he hits the wall a crack appears and he is able to see Jando on the other side. Kuroda starts to mount another attack when he is summoned to Sakura’s aid once again.
Jando and Sakura are both beat up, but Jando’s Byakugan has started working. Jando figures out that the real Bosch is hiding underground and attacks when they are distracted by the clones. Kuroda makes a few clones, and transforms all but one into Bosch. Then the original goes underground using the Headhunter Technique. When Bosch surfaces to attack the clone, Kuroda catches him from underground, and then his transformed clones use a combo attack and send Bosch through the wall and into the cavern where Kayo and Kaneo are. Kuroda, Jando, and Sakura arrive to see the Dantoloxo and Kaneo fighting.
Kaneo is furious that Bosch was defeated and uses his own Fog Clone Jutsu. Kuroda uses the same strategy to catch Kaneo, and then Dantoloxo uses a water attack to kill Kaneo. Exhausted Jando falls to sleep. Kuroda decides to test his healing abilities and heals the more severe wounds on everyone, but leaves Kayo unable to walk as punishment for almost getting the other two killed.
Kuroda explains to Kayo and Sakura about how the seal works. Kuroda orders Kayo and Sakura not to tell anyone about his healing abilities. After a day of rest Team 3 starts back towards the village, with Kuroda carrying Kayo on his back all the way to the Hanabira Medical Facility.
Sakura and Jando hand over the sculpture and give a mission report to the Koukage. All members of Team 3 have to stay in the hospital to heal from the recent mission. Kuroda recovers the fastest and is released before the others. Kuroda is summoned to the Koukage’s office where she informs him, “The Chunin exams are coming up and I think you proved on your last mission that you have the ability. I want you to participate.” Kuroda surprises her by his knowledge by saying, “I am aware that the first stages of the exam require a team, and I feel that my team is not ready yet.”
Just then Team 15 enters to tell the Koukage that they do not feel they are ready for the Chunin exams either. This time Kuroda seems surprised saying, “I would think that a team like yours with all that talent would be itching to move up to Chunin level.” Rame Tsu and Naoko comment, “Our sensei is more concerned with being a pervert. He hasn’t really taught us anything that we could not have figured out on our own.” The 8th Koukage decides, “Fine if none of you are going to participate then I will give you a mission instead, and since Kuroda’s teammates are still in the hospital, he will join you on the mission.” As Kuroda and Team 15 exit the Koukage’s office, Team 10 enters to tell her that they also don’t want to enter the Chunin exams either.

Tea Country Arc

The next day Kuroda and Team 15 set out on the mission. The objective is to track down a man with an extremely large gambling debt who seems to be able to elude normal debt collectors. They arrive in the Tea Country and meet with the leader of the Wasabi Clan. They learn that the gambler seems to have ninja like abilities, can disguise himself, and disappear in an instant. However the gambler has an extremely recognizable way of playing, so they have figured out a way to find him. The plan is for Team 15 to wait until a message comes in that the gambler is at one of the betting houses. Then they will immediately go and capture him. Nothing happens in the first few days, and everyone starts to get restless.
Tousen decides that he will pass the time by trying his luck in a casino, but no one else can come, because they are too young. Rame Tsu and Naoko speculate, “I bet he’s not even going gamble. He is probably going to a brothel, because he is a pervert!” Kuroda takes this opportunity to explore the region looking for possible people he can use in his plans. Shun becomes suspicious of Kuroda and follows him; however Kuroda quickly becomes aware of his tail, but is not really concerned. After most of the day is passed Kuroda is disappointed he did not find anyone. He vanishes from Shun’s view and appears behind him asking if he is ready to go back. Shun is stunned and ponders how and when Kuroda became aware of him.
When they arrive Rame Tsu and Naoko immediately start questioning and telling off the two males. In the middle of Naoko screaming at Kuroda, about running off without telling anyone where he was going, a messenger comes in and informs the Wasabi leader that the gambler is at one of the gambling dens. Kuroda suggests that they should wait until Tousen returns, but Rame Tsu argues that it might be a long time before they get another chance to catch the guy. A vote is taken, and Kuroda reluctantly agrees to go without Tousen. The messenger gives them directions to the gambling den and they head off.
When they arrive they are greeted by an eccentric Tousen who loudly tells them that he has been winning tons off some sucker. Then he asks them why they are there, because they are supposed to be waiting for the gambler to show up. With that a man throws a smoke bomb and crashes through a window. The Genin take off after the gambler, leaving Tousen looking confused. After realizing that he will not receive any of the money he just won, he figures out that the sucker was the guy they were looking for and he takes off after them.
The gambler leads them to the ocean where they run into an extremely dense mist. Kuroda instantly recognizes it as the Hidden Mist Technique, and speculates to the others that they are dealing with a ninja. Tousen arrives and uses his Air Bullet Jutsu to disperse portions of the mist. The gambler is revealed, and Tousen tries to use his Syrup Capture Field to trap him, but it turns out to be a Water Clone. Shun sees the gambler sneak into a cave, so they all follow. Kuroda advises them not to split up, because it might be a trick to split them up and make them easier targets.
Team 15 finally corners the gambler in a large cavern. The gambler is surrounded by smoke, and then a young woman appears. Tousen immediately recognizes her as Kasumi Momochi a Jonin from the Village Hidden in the Mist. She does not recognize him, and he sulks. Rame Tsu and Naoko make comments on how much of a failure is. Tousen warns them that Kasumi may look young, but she is a child prodigy and extremely dangerous. Kasumi says that now that her cover is blown, she has to kill them before she can return to her village. Tousen says, “All right all of you stand back, I am going to take her on by my….” But both Shun and Kuroda create Shadow Clones and start to attack her.
Kasumi effortlessly defeats the clones, and then captures Shun in a Water Prison. Then she creates a Water Clone with one hand and it starts to attack them. Naoko uses her Manipulating Attack Blades to try and free Shun, but the Water Clone deflects them all. Tousen takes the chance to launch an Air Bullet attack at the real Kasumi. She is forced to release the Water Prison. Kasumi looks like she is about to start some hand signs, when another clone of hers appears and knocks out Kuroda. Everyone including the real Kasumi is stunned. Then four more clones appear and knock Team 15 unconscious.
Now Kasumi is shocked and starts to try and figure out where the clones came from. Kuroda stands up and gives orders to the clones to take Team 15’s bodies outside; rough them up a bit, and make sure they stay unconscious until he comes out. Kasumi stares at Kuroda and asks him how he was able to make the clones and transform them without anyone knowing, and why he attacked his own team. Kuroda comments, “Why would I tell the secrets of my Jutsu to you? I will however say that I took out my own team because he wanted to be alone with you.” Kasumi starts laughing hysterically and says, “You are a fool for wanting to fight an advance Jonin like me by yourself. There is no way you can win with all those weak attacks you used earlier. I barely even had to try.” Kuroda retorts, “I was only using a tenth of my power to attack earlier.”
Kuroda throws a few kunai at her and then he disappears form view. Kasumi dodges the knives, and then is attacked with a kick from behind by Kuroda. She blocks the attack and throws Kuroda against the ground saying that his speed was impressive for a Genin, but not good enough. As the dust clears Kuroda’s body turns into smoke and the original Kuroda appears above Kasumi and lands a powerful kick to the head. Her body melts into a pool of water. Then she materializes next to him and traps him in a Water Prison Jutsu.
She comments, “Good strategy, but you are not the only one who can create a clone within only a few seconds.” A puff of smoke appears inside the Water Prison. Kasumi releases the Jutsu with an angry look on her face. She yells, “I’m getting pissed off and now I’m not going hold back anymore. I will use some of my more advanced Jutsu to kill you quickly.”
Five clones materialize and charge at her. She takes out a kunai and tears them to shreds. When one of the clones does not disappear, she uses some hand signs and shoots her Rapid Crasher straight at Kuroda. He is able to get most of his body out of the way, but his left arm is severely injured. Kuroda makes a Shadow clone and it starts to use the Mystical Palm Technique to heal him. Kasumi gets even angrier and fires off another Rapid Crasher at him. This time he instantly transports right behind her and slashes her back with a kunai. She falls to the ground screaming in pain. He lands and begins to heal his arm again.
After a while Kasumi struggles to sit up and says, “Impossible, no one can move that fast. Besides, you were only half as fast as I was, so there is no way you should be able to do that.” Kuroda replies, “I already told you I was only using a tenth of my power. As a Jonin you should know to never underestimate an opponent that you know nothing about.” Kuroda looks satisfied with the state of his arm, even though it is not fully healed, and walks toward Kasumi. He starts saying, “This battle is over, and now I need to hurry and fulfill my objective before the others wake up.” Kasumi struggles to her feet looking even angrier and charges at him. He easily dodges her and this time lands a huge slash across her chest with the kunai. She falls to the ground.
Kuroda looks at her and says, “I’m impressed. You are indeed a highly skilled ninja; you shouldn’t even be able to walk right now. I really don’t want to kill you.” He offers to spare her life in exchange for her serving him. She spits in his face and then jumps up and away across the room. She immediately starts a long chain of hand signs. Kuroda says, “You just keep surprising me. To think that you still have enough chakra to do what I assume is an extremely advanced Jutsu.” Kasumi comments, “Prepare yourself, This Jutsu is going to send you straight to hell,” and then she finishes the hand signs and attacks him with her Water Dragon Jutsu.
A huge river of water surges toward Kuroda, and he has no way to escape it. He is tossed around inside the water and slammed against the cave wall. Kasumi throws some kunai at Kuroda, but his body goes up in smoke. She falls down exhausted, and curses him and his Clone Jutsu. Kuroda appears with a kunai knife to Kasumi’s throat, and restates his offer of sparing her life in exchange for her servitude.
Kasumi thinks to herself, “I will probably be executed if I go back to the village and tell them I failed this mission, so I might as well agree to the terms.” She tells Kuroda, “I accept your offer.” Kuroda takes out a scroll and tells Kasumi, “Sign your name in blood to bind the agreement.” She does. Then Kuroda has Kasumi take off her clothes. She hesitates and a surging pain goes through her body. Kuroda tells her, “This pain will happen every time you don’t do as I ask. It is not fatal, but it hurts a lot.”
She takes her clothes off. He takes out a kunai and carves a symbol similar to an exploding tag into her flesh. Then he makes a few hand signs and pours some of his chakra into the mark. After a minute the mark dims and soon is no longer visible. Kuroda tells her to tell no one about what he just did, and to put her clothes back on. Kuroda then starts to heal the wound on Kasumi’s back.
He tells her, “I’m only going to heal this one wound. I won’t heal any of the other ones, because you need to look like you was just in a battle. You will return to the Village Hidden in the Mist and report everything up until I took out my teammates. Instead you will lie and say that a mysterious and powerful ninja attacked all of us and somehow you were able to get away and headed back towards the village.” Kasumi rejects the idea, “If I go back to my village I will be executed for failing the mission.” Kuroda ignores her and says, “They wouldn’t kill you because of that.” She tries to object, but he cuts her off, “You must do as I order unless you wish for that pain to return.” Kasumi gives up remembering the horrible pain, instead she asks, “What are you going to tell your village?” He responds, “Oh I’m just going to pretend that I was knocked out like the rest, and woke up outside the cave with her gone.”
They walk outside the cave and head over by the others. He tells her that as soon as she has made him unconscious to leave. She knocks him out.
When he wakes up two days later, the others are all standing around him. Naoko comments, “Jeez, you should have been the first one up, because you were attacked first.” Kuroda asks, “What happened, and how did I get back to the Wasabi mansion?” Shun tells him, “When I woke up we were all outside the cave and that Mist ninja was no where to be seen. I waited until Tousen was awake and we decided to come back to the mansion.” Tousen says, “We are going to head back to the village in the morning and reporting this to the Koukage.”

Murder in the Mist Arc

Meanwhile Kasumi arrives at the entrance where she is met by some guards. “What the hell happened to you?” one of them asks. “It’s none of your business,” she says, “Just tell them I am back” “Yes ma’m!” they salute, and then one of them goes to get someone while she waits. A young boy appears from nowhere. He says, “You back already sis, always looking to finish as soon as possible, but you don’t look to good. Did you underestimate your opponent again?” She replies, “Shut up Desh. You should not concern yourself with my missions unless you are included in them.” The guard returns and says, “Come with me Lady Kasumi.” He sees Desh and tells him, “The Mizukage was looking for you, he wants to talk to you right away, and he isn’t in a patient mood.” “Damn,” says Desh, “Well see you later sis.” He reluctantly dashes off. The guard leads Kasumi through a series of buildings and trees and into an underground tunnel and up to a door. She enters and he returns to his post.
Team 15 is about halfway home when they decide to take a short break. They stop by a spring for a rest. “I am going to look for some rare berries I heard were around here,” says Kuroda as he walks off. “Just don’t go too far,” says Yoshikuni. Kuroda wanders around looking for the rare berries, when he is suddenly transported away. When Team 15 realizes he is gone they begin to look for him. After an hour they decide to give up and head back towards the village.
When Kasumi closes the doors she sees five outlines of men, but can’t see their faces. She knows they are some of the highest ranking Jonin who are under direct orders from the Mizukage. One of them speaks, “Kasumi Momochi, why did you abandon your mission? You were supposed to be there for two more months.” Another one questions, “And why are you so badly hurt. You are one of the top young Jonin in our village.” A third demands, “Answer us now! Explain yourself or face the punishment!” One of the final two yells, “All of you shut up! How is she supposed to talk with you badgering her? Now speak Kasumi!”
She recounts, “I was discovered by a team from the Hidden Petal Village. I lured them into a cave so I could take them out without anyone seeing. Everything was going fine; I was in the middle of fighting them when suddenly a figure appeared. This… mysterious ninja was so fast that I could barely see what happened. He attacked both me and the petal ninja. When I woke up I was outside of the cave in this condition and the petal ninja and the mysterious ninja were nowhere to be seen. I thought it was best to return here and report what happened.”
One of the men slaps her across the face, “You lying ;););););)!” She falls to the ground clutching her face and retorts, “I would not lie to you! My only purpose is to serve you! I am telling the truth!” They talk amongst themselves whispering and debating. They determine that since she failed such an important mission and revealed herself to an enemy village that she would be killed and they would claim she was a rogue ninja not acting on their orders. The silent one pulls out a long sword aims it at her chest and stabs at her heart.
Kuroda materializes and blocks the attack. The man yells, “Who the hell are you?” He sees the petal symbol on Kuroda’s headband and yells out, “She is a traitor! Kill them both!” Kuroda takes out forty of his special kunai and throws them all over the room. He uses his Flying Thunder God Technique, flashing around the dark room and killing all five men before they could even try and defend themselves. Kasumi stares in amazement realizing, “Is that his real power? If he had used that against me he could have defeated me easily with that technique. Was he only testing my abilities when we fought?”
Kuroda takes off his headband and stores it in a pocket. Then he walks over to one of the corpses and takes the mist headband and puts it on. He tells Kasumi, “I guess you weren’t kidding when you said they would kill you. I will remember to believe you next time. However they should believe you this time, so tell them that the mysterious ninja from earlier followed you back and assassinated everyone but left you alive for some reason.” “Yes, I will,” she replies. Then he stabs her in a particularly painful spot and she lets out an excruciating scream heard throughout the village. Guards from all over come running in the direction of the scream.
He opens the door and uses his Flying Thunder God Technique to escape the village and head back to his own. He arrives just outside of the gate about 12 hours later. He creates a Shadow Clone and has it put some serious wounds and gashes in him. He sees Team 15 approaching and stumbles out onto the road falling down to the ground.

Who do you like? Team 3 amd Ichimaru.
Who do you dislike? Rame Tsu and Naoko; they are too feminist for me.
Who do you think is strong? Kuroda and Kayo
Who do you like as couples? Well, Kuroda has seen about 5 women and has seen their business because of the scroll signing, so I don't know who he finds most attractive. :lol:

My answers are in green above. :D

Kuroda’s Suspension Arc

When Kuroda wakes up he is in the Hanabira hospital. The nurse sees him and summons the Koukage. She comes in and greets him, “Hello Kuroda, it is good to see you awake.” “Lady Koukage, why are you here?” asks Kuroda. “Do you know where you are?” she inquires. “I assume that Yoshikuni and the others brought me inside the village,” he replies, “and judging by the room I assume I am in the hospital.” “Good the doctors thought you might have had a concussion,” she replies. “But still why are you here Lady Koukage?” he asks. “When someone disappears from a mission and then shows up in front of the village it is a matter that a high ranking person needs to investigate. And considering the report I got from Yoshikuni I thought it was necessary I investigated this matter personally.”
“So he told you what happened,” comments Kuroda. “Yes, but I would like to hear your version,” she says, “And please start at the point where you tracked the mist ninja called Kasumi into the cave and engaged her in combat.” nicely. He explains, “I anticipated that Shun was going to attack her alone, so I thought I would give him a hand. Obviously we failed and Shun was trapped in her water jutsu. After Tousen was able to free Shun, I was going to try another attack, when Kasumi started to perform hand signs. Suddenly, as if Kasumi did not mean to do it, a clone attacked me from behind and knocked me unconscious. I woke up back in the Wasabi mansion.” “That is consistent with what the others said, but what about your arm? Yoshikuni said it was injured when they all woke up and found you,” she says.
“I’m not sure,” he says, “I just woke up like that.” The Koukage does not seem to believe him, but she moves on, “So what happened to you on the way back to the village? Where did you disappear to?” Kuroda explains, “We stopped to take a break, and I remembered reading about some rare berries that were in the area, so I went to look for them. While I was searching someone came out of nowhere and attacked me. I tried to get to the others, but could not find them. I tried to fight the enemy, but he was too fast for me, I could barely even see his movements. So I did the only thing I could think of which was run. Somehow I was able to make it to the village gates where I collapsed. I’m not sure why my attacker didn’t follow me.” The Koukage again does not believe him, but does not press the matter. “Very well, thank you for explaining that to me,” she says getting up and walking to the door, “please get some rest.”
She leaves the room and meets with a fully healed Kayo in the hallway “So how is he?” asks Kayo. “He seems fine both physically and mentally,” says the Koukage, “However I believe he is lying to me for some reason. Please use your Mind Interrogation Technique to find out what really happened.” “Yes lady Koukage,” says Kayo. Kayo enters the room and immediately does the Jutsu before Kuroda can say anything.
Inside Kuroda’s mind Kayo finds the wall, and Kuroda appears. She tells him, “The Koukage ordered me to find out what really happened.” Kuroda replies, “I was summoned to help one of my other associates.” “You mean slaves,” Kayo snaps. “Is that what you really think?” Kuroda says. “Do you not see that this is a mutual relationship? I have already proven that I will risk my life to save yours, and all I ask is that when I need you to, you follow my orders and wishes so I can accomplish my dreams.” “And the majority of your orders have been to keep your secrets about the betrayal of the village, and to help you in enslaving others to my own fate,” replies Kayo.
“It is only your opinion that I am betraying the village, because you do not know the full extent of my plans,” says Kuroda. “Plans that you swore you would tell me,” snaps Kayo. “And when the time is right you will know them, but I cannot risk you meddling,” replies Kuroda. “As for my other associates they have all agreed to my terms of their own free will in return for something that they wanted from me. Now, you will tell the Koukage that my memories have been tampered with and the originals cannot be recovered.” Kayo returns from Kuroda’s mind, walks outside and gives the Koukage the message.
The Koukage comes back in the room and informs, “I have decided that you will be suspended from all further missions and you are not allowed to leave the village until I say so.” “What? Why?” he protests. The 8th Koukage explains, “It is for your own protection and for the village’s protection. You cannot fully remember what happened and some of your memories have been tampered with. You may have given up some information about the village, or been put under a Jutsu. Also the person who attacked you might be waiting and will try to kill you the next time you go on a mission. It is safest for you lay low for a while.”
Kuroda is restricted to the village after he gets out of the hospital. He is allowed to go on the D-rank missions that are inside of the village. For any ones outside either Shun, Ichimaru, or Rame Tsu accompanies Team 3 as a replacement. This goes on for two months so Kuroda spend most of his time training on his own, training Sakura, researching various things, or hanging out with Ichimaru.
One day Kuroda is in a library looking up something on the Village Hidden in the Grass when Ichimaru walks in. he says, “Man this is really getting annoying. Pulling double duty as a replacement on your team as well as going on my own teams missions is really a pain. What makes it worse is that Jando Hyuga doesn’t listen to anyone. He always jumps right into everything without planning or strategizing. When are you going to get yourself back on to missions?” Kuroda replies, “She is the one making me stay inside the village, go complain to her.” “No way man,” says Ichimaru, “I’m not going to say that to her.” Kuroda states, “It stinks, while I can get in a lot of research and practice, there is no better training than a real mission.” “Strange to see you doing research, but yeah a real mission is the best training,” Ichimaru agrees, “Well I am pretty tired I am going head off to bead.” “Make sure you get a good rest,” says Kuroda, “I heard from Kayo that you have another mission tomorrow.” “Oh yeah, I just remembered, “says Ichimaru, “Sakura said she wanted to talk to you about something important. You should probably go and see her.” “All right, thanks for the message,” responds Kuroda. They depart their separate ways. Kuroda is walking over to Sakura’s house and is almost there when he is transported away.

I like him because I like Hyuugas and he's a unique one. I'm curious on his character development. ^^

Hoorayz for that! ^^

Couples? I'd go for anyone paired with anyone, seriously. ^^
