Chapter 6: Team Seven

"Oh? Sasuke! Hey man, over here!!" A maroon haired teen yelled waving at the ravenette, duck shaped haired teen who wandered the streets of Konoha. The Uchiha turned his attention at the person who had called out to him.

"Menma, Mito. Long time no see!" Sasuke smiled a little, although a little annoyed. He knew how loud Menma's sister was, louder and more bitchy that Sakura herself. Although Sakura wasn't half bad, compared to Mito that is.

"Hey guys!" A cheery voice exclaimed.

They all turned to see Sakura running up to them, "hey Sakura-chan!" Menma grinned waving at the pinkette.

"Hey Sakura!" Mito exclaimed hugging her friend.

"Hn, hey." Sasuke casually said.

"What are you all doing here?" Sakura asked.

"Mito and I were just chilling here and we saw Sasuke walking around so we called out to him." Menma explained cooly.

"Uh... ok?" Sakura said in a questioning manner. Why is he always acting like that? What is he, a show off? Ew... show offs are disgusting. Sakura thought.

Suddenly in a swirl of smoke Kakashi, their Sensei, appeared in front of them. "Yo!" He greeted with his usual eye-smile and favourite book in on hand. "We've a got a mission, so all of you head to the Hokage's Office right away." He announced and disappeared.

"We got a mission! Hooray!!!" The twins cheered along with Sakura while Sasuke just walked towards the Hokage's Office, not wanting to deal with anymore of the twins shenanigans.

"Oy! Sasuke, wait up!" Menma called out and chased after his friend. The two girls followed the boys and all four walked together to the office. It didn't take long and by the time they had arrived, Kakashi was already there.

"Wow, Kakashi-sensei is here before us." Mito said, surprised.

"That's the first." Sakura added and everyone nodded.

Minato sat on his chair, behind his desk, he greeted the team with a smile. "Hello Team 7, glad you could make it." He said. "Now, onto the point."

The atmosphere turned from cheery and happiness to pure seriousness. "We've just received message that the Kazekage of Sunagakure has been taken by an organisation known as Akatsuki."

Everyone's eyes widened, recalling the moment when they had first encountered them. Gaara..? Those damn bastards, again?! Menma clenched his fists. "Your mission, Team Seven, is to immediately head to Sunagakure, find out about the situation and relay it to Konohagakure."

"And then follow the orders of Sunagakure and back them up!" Minato ordered.

"Yes sir!"

"Alright, as the Hokage said, we will head out immediately. Head home and pack everything you need as quick as you can. We will meet up at the bridge." Kakashi ordered.

Everyone nodded and left the building to get ready for their first real mission after two years. Soon they all had finished packing. They gathered at the gates with Minato, Tsunade, Jiraiya and Iruka who had gone to see them off.

"Alright, we're going now, father." Mito smiled.

Minato nodded and smiled, "take care you two, same with the rest of your team." He said. The team nodded with smiles on their faces.

Jiraiya smiled and looked at Kakashi. His expression went from friendly to dead seriousness. "Kakashi, take care of the twins. Make sure the both of them don't do something stupid." He said.

Kakashi simply eye smiled and nodded. "Will do." He said.

"C'mon guys! Let's head out already!" Menma urged, excited for their first ever mission as Team Seven once again.

"Wait up Menma!" Mito yelled and ran after her brother with Sakura close behind her. Kakashi sighed and waved goodbye to everyone else before following after his students.

As the team made their way to Sunagakure, Sakura spotted a certain teen with dirty blond hair walking slowly. "Temari!" She called out, everyone looked down and spotted their friend.

The team dropped from the trees and landed next to Temari. "You guys?" She asked. "What are you guys doing?"

"We're going to Suna." Menma answered and tilted his head to the side. "Do you not know of the situation there?" He asked.

Temari raised an eyebrow, "what do you mean...?" She asked.

Menma opened his mouth to explain the situation but Sasuke beat him to it. "Gaara was captured by the Akatsuki not too long ago." He answered.

"Hey! That was my line Sasuke-teme!!" Menma growled. The Uchiha glanced at Menma and stuck his tongue out playfully, enraging the red head. "You little shit!!" Menma growled and was ready to attack when his sister abruptly hit him on the head.

"Shut up!!" She scowled.

"Come on! Let's get a move on!" Mito urged after they had explained everything to Temari who was clearly still in a state of shock and disbelief.

"Right!" They said in unison.

It didn't take long for them to arrive at Sunagakure, by the time they had arrived it was already just past lunch time. A ninja from Suna had been awaiting for their arrival, "we have been waiting, please come this way." He said.

"Right!" They exclaimed in unison and followed the ninja into the village.

Along the way the ninja explained everything that had happened. "But... the Kazekage was abducted and Kankuro pursued the enemy. Ninja's soon found him outside the village heavily wounded." He explained.

"What!? They got Kankuro too!?!" Temari exclaimed.

"Yes, he was caught by the enemy's poison too and we have no way to neutralize it too." The ninja answered. "At this rate, he has half a day at the most..." He trailed.

Temari cursed under her breath. "Let's hurry Temari," Sakura spoke up getting Temari's attention, "I'll examine him."

They sprinted to the hospital where Kankuro was being held. "Kankuro!!!" Temari yelled as she rushed into the room with Sakura close behind her. The pinkette tossed her bag aside and rushed to Kankuro.

The old lady who stood by Kankuro turned and looked at Kakashi. The White Fang of Konoha?! She thought. Before anyone could even move Sasuke and Menma moved quickly. The two blocked the old lady's attacks with ease.

"Oy! You wrinkly old hag! Don't attack our Sensei!!" Menma growled glaring at the old lady.

"I remember that time... the White Fang of Konoha..." She glared at Kakashi, hatred visible in her eyes, "my son's enemy... I will get my revenge for him today!!"

Before she could attack the elder by Kankuro stopped her, "sister Chiyo... take a good look," he said, "there is a strong resemblance but he is not the White Fang of Konoha."

Chiyo glanced at Kakashi, she squinted her eyes and looked at him for a minute. She suddenly burst into a fit of laughter, "I was just pretending to be stupid!" She laughed and Kakashi heaved a sigh of relief.

After awhile Sakura had managed to remove the poison from Kankuro's system. Temari released a sigh of relief and sat on the floor, leaning against the wall. "Great! Now that Kankuro is fine, let's go after the Akatsuki!!" Menma grinned.

~Konoha~

"Your mission is to head to Sunagakure and support them with Team Seven, is that understood?" Minato asked the team that stood before her.

Gai looked at Minato and gave her a thumbs up, "right!!" He exclaimed.
