Forging the Truth Chapter 3
Rin and Obito were watching Minato and Kakashi talk. "What are they saying?" Obito whispered to Rin. Rin looked at Obito. "Shh. We can't let them hear us."Obito nodded. "Sorry." He said quieter. Kakashi threw a kunai at the tree. Rin and Obito jumped out of the bush taking cover. "So you were spying?" Kakashi asked. Obito scrambled to his feet. "Heh. No." He helped Rin up. "Didn't I tell you two to go ahead?" Minato asked them. They both nodded. "Yes Minato Sensei. But what about him?" She pointed at Kakashi reading his book. "He's coming with us. Until we figure out what to do with him." Kakashi looked up. "So the Third. Are we heading back to the village?" Minato nodded. "We are done here." The four of them left.
"What do we do now
" Naruto asked. "Who's our leader?" They all looked at each other. "Well, Sai and I are Chunins. What are you again?" Sai butted in. "He said he was a Jonin." Naruto shook his head. "He's twelve. I'm not taking orders from him." Sakura shook her head. "We have no choice. He's above our ranks." I just looked at them. "Um. Then let's go complete this mission. Finding your friend. Sasuke right?" Sakura and Naruto nodded. "Yes." Sakura said. "Lead the way." He told them. They all left the scene.
We arrived. I looked around. "Where are we?" I asked. "The man who took Sasuke away from our village to become what he calls a vessel." Naruto told me. "Who?" I asked. "He calls himself Orochimaru." Naruto said annoyed. I froze. "You mean. Orochimaru Sensei? He's-" They all looked at me. I didn't know what to say. "Sensei?" Naruto asked. "The last thing I remember he was with Jiraiya and Tsunade. But
" Sakura shook her head. "He's done some illegal things." "
" I didn't really know how to respond. We kept moving forward. We couldn't find them basically anywhere. Then, we came across a room. One was sitting in the chair and the other standing next to him. "OROCHIMARU!" Naruto screamed. Orochimaru stood up coming closer. The one behind him must be Sasuke. I stood in my stance ready for attack if necessary.
"Well we are back." Minato told the team. "Finally. I want a break." Obito said as he started walking away. "Kakashi, come with me." Minato told him. Kakashi followed him to the Hokage's office. The two entered standing before the third. "Sarutobi Sir." Minato said. "We have a slight problem." The third turned around from looking out the window. "If it's not about the war-" "Sir, it's about Kakashi. He went missing. More like, he drowned, and then he showed up in his place." The third walked over to them. "And you are?" he asked. Kakashi looked up from his book. "My name is Kakashi Hatake." The third shook his head. "Not possible." Minato looked at Kakashi and then back at the third. "Sir. I give you my word. He is Kakashi. My student Kakashi." The third looked at Minato. "He can't grow into a 28 year old man over a time span of a couple of hours." Minato sighed. "Just hear me out. He is Kakashi. He can prove it to you." The third looked at Kakashi waiting. Kakashi didn't even notice still reading. "Kakashi!" Minato yelled. Kakashi looked at him. "Hu?" "He's waiting for your explanation." Kakashi looked at him. "Oh yea. My younger self. He's with my students." "Your students?" The third asked. "Yes. Naruto Uzumaki, Sakura Haruno and Sai. They should be doing an investigation on someone, I'm not saying who. I don't want to mess anything up. But my other student Sasuke Uchiha. He is with this man. We have been trying to bring him home for years." Kakashi informed them. "Naruto Uzumaki. Sasuke Uchiha. Sakura Haruno. And Sai?" He said for conformation. "Yes. That's their names." Kakashi nodded. "Well then. We must find a way to get you two back home safely." He nodded. Letting them leave.
