OoOoOoOoOoO

Red Star, Rarity, Lightning Bolt, and Twilight Sparkle had been walking for what seemed like hours.

“Excuse me, dear,” said Rarity, “but how far is this exit?”

“I am uncertain,” answered Red Star, “my spell can only find a way out. It can not tell me how far.”

Rarity whimpered. Twilight would have joined Rarity if her attention wasn’t on how much her hooves hurt. She glanced over at Lightning Bolt. The Pegasus was looking around for any potential danger. Lightning Bolt stopped for a moment when he noticed movement. He flew up to the spot and looked around.

“Is everything all right Bolt?” asked Red Star.

Lightning Bolt looked around one more time.

“Yeah,” he said before flying back to the group.

Necromorph let out a sigh of relief.

That was a close one, he thought.

He looked past the rock pillar, that he hid behind, at the group. His changelings had informed him of the locations of the missing two elements. Necromorph watched as the group turned a corner. He flew to another cliff. This time he made sure the Pegasus wasn’t looking. The sound of rocks moving took Necromorph’s attention away from them. His eyes narrowed as he spotted what was causing the noise.

“Gem dogs!” Necromorph heard the Pegasus shout.

The pack of three gem dogs charged at them. Red Star caste a barrier spell causing them to bounce off. Lightning Bolt flew up and stomped the stomach of one, knocking the breath out of it. Twilight was firing off beams of magic at the dog that was coming at her. It skillfully dodged the beams and headbutted Twilight. The attack had enough force to knock her hard on the rock wall. She lost consciousness.

“Twilight!” shouted Rarity, “why you no good gem eating mutt!”

Rarity jumped on the back of the dog. The third dog had Red Star cornered. Red Star smirked, and her horn glowed. She fired off a fire type spell only to have it shoved away. Red Star’s eyes widen while the dog, this time, smirked. However, that smirk didn’t last long. The dog’s eyes widen upon seeing Necromorph hovering above them all.

“Run!” the dog shouted, “It’s the changeling prince! Run! Run away!”

The second dog picked the third up while the first ran past them. Necromorph glared as he watched the last of the gem dogs scoured away. He had no choice, but to interfere. He needed all six harmonies unharmed and alive for his plan B to be successful. Speaking of them, Necromorph looked down at the group. Lightning Bolt was glaring at him and was ready to defend the others with his life. Red Star was getting a spell ready. Rarity was using her own body to shield the unconscious Twilight in case of an attack.

Necromorph just grinned at them before flying off. Red Star, Lightning Bolt, and Rarity watched him go. Rarity sighed in relief before checking on Twilight. She had a gash on her head.

“I think we should let the prince know about that Changeling when we get back,” said Lightning Bolt.

Red Star nodded in agreement. She went over to Twilight and Rarity.

“She has a gash on her head,” informed Rarity.

“We’ll stop the bleeding for now,” said Red Star, “then we’ll get out of this cave as fast as we can.”

Rarity nodded. The two stopped the bleeding, and Red Star put Twilight on her back. She, then, cast her location spell and the three started heading to an exit at a much faster pace.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Bloody Chaos was heading to the castle doors. He needed some fresh air after having a long talk with his father about past events. His ears flattened when he heard arguing. Upon turning a corner, Bloody Chaos was who it was. It was none other then Reaverstein and his two siblings, Crystalstien, and Richen Bit, arguing with Sapphire Rush. Crystalstien was a white unicorn with a silver mane plus tail and light blue eyes. Richen Bit was a gray unicorn with a black mane plus tail and gray eyes.

“And what is the prince going to do about all those Changelings banging out there?” asked Crystalstien, “that barrier isn’t going to last long.”

‘It will,” Bloody Chaos spoke up startling the siblings.

“How would you know?” asked Richen Bit.

“Because I’m the one who cast it,” stated Chaos, “the only way that barrier will come down is if I make it do so. I am very tempted to do just that to only watch the Changelings feast on you. Judging by your attitudes no one will miss you.”

The siblings were taken back. Reaverstein looked at Sapphire Rush.

“Are you just going to let him talk to us like that?” he asked.

“He is the prince of Equestria,” answered Sapphire Rush, “I have no authority over him.”

“Prince huh?” commented Crystalstien, “I bet Celestia was very desperate to marry a lonely freak like you.”

Sapphire Rush’s eyes widen, and she slowly backed away. Bloody Chaos smirked very creepily making Crystalstien swallow.

“Dear little immature spoiled filly,” Bloody Chaos started, “if you insult me like that again. I will give you nightmares that are so bad that you will gouge out your eyes and start wishing you were never alive. Do I make my self clear?”

Crystalstien nodded. Bloody Chaos looked over at the other two. The brothers swallowed, and their legs started to shake.

“The same threat goes tot he two of you as well,” said Bloody Chaos, “I suggest the three of you leave. Now.”

The siblings didn’t hesitate. They ran away. Sapphire Rush sighed in relief.

“Thanks,” she said, “those three can be a real pain sometimes.”

“I’m surprised Prince Dusk hasn’t banished them,” commented Bloody Chaos.

“He didn’t want the kingdoms to suffer the same misery we have to deal with,” said Sapphire Rush.

Bloody Chaos rolled his eyes.

“That colt is far too nice,” he said before continuing on his way.

He took a deep breath and let it out once outside. Bloody Chaos looked up at the moon.

Is it really that late? He asked himself.

“Chaos?” a voice called out.

Chaos mentally sighed.

So much for peace and quiet, he thought.

He looked at Red Star.

“Hello mother,” he greeted.

He, then, noticed Twilight slumped over on his mother’s back.

“What happen?” he asked.

“Gem eating dogs attacked,” answered Lightning Bolt, “she hit the rocky wall hard enough to cause a gash and knock her out.”

“I’ll see if I can find someone who can heal,” said Blood Chaos, “mother we can talk afterward if you are not too tired by then.”

“Okay,” said Red Star.

“I didn’t know you were the prince’s mother,” commented Rarity.

“Prince?” Red Star asked.

“Chaos is the prince of Equestria due to marrying Princess Celestia,” answered Rarity.

Red Star’s eyes widen. Just what was her son been doing after he left Alamoria.

“Ladies you can continue the conversation later,” said Lightning Bolt, “right now Princess Twilight needs medical attention.”

Red Star and Rarity nodded. Bloody Chaos managed to find a nurse. The nurse and Dusk were with him when he met up with Lightning Bolt, Red Star, and Rarity. Dusk had Twilight brought to his room to be treated and for her to rest. Rarity retired to her room. Red Star and Lightning Bolt went with Bloody Chaos and Dusk in the throne room.

“Are you sure that’s what those dogs called him?” asked Dusk after being told about the events in the cave.

“I’m sure of it,” answered Lightning Bolt.

“I managed to capture his image with a spell,” said Red Star.

“Show it to me please,” ordered Dusk.

Red Star’s horn glowed, and an image of Necromorph appeared in front of them.

“He looks familiar to me,” commented Dusk, “but I don’t remember where though.”

“He sort of looks like the female one that attacked during Princess Cadence and Shining Armor’s wedding,” stated Bloody Chaos.

“Was she beaten?” asked Dusk.

“From what I was told yes,” answered Bloody Chaos, “as for how; I think the elements of harmony can tell you. Simply because I have no idea.”

Dusk nodded.

“As for the citrine gems,” he started, “we’ll put them up tomorrow.”

“Will Twilight’s barrier hold till then?” asked Red Star.

“Her barrier failed a couple of hours after you guys left,” answered Dusk, “the current one is one your son here caste.”

“And it will hold,” stated Chaos.

“Now then,” said Dusk, “if there is nothing else I suggest we get some sleep.”

Everypony nodded. Lightning Blot left. Bloody Chaos looked at Dusk and his mother.

“I’m sorry about the cave in,” he said, “if I had known that the earthquake I added would have caused that I wouldn’t-”

“It’s all right Prince Chaos,” interrupted Dusk, “everypony is still alive. So all is forgiven.”

Bloody Chaos shook his head.

“Too nice and too forgiving,” he commented, “looks like I’m going to have to break you of that habit sometime.”

Dusk chuckled.

“Good night you two,” he said while heading out of the throne room.

Red Star came up to Bloody Chaos.

“So my son,” she started, “what is this about you marrying Princess Celestia? Also, what did you do to your eyes? They look much different from the last time I saw them.”

Bloody Chaos bit his lip.

This is going to be a long night, he thought.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Dusk sighed as he opened and shut the door to his room. He looked at Twilight as she slept on his bed. He nuzzled her gently. Dusk smiled and laid down on the floor.

Please get well soon my beloved Twilight, he thought before drifting off to sleep.

OoOoOoOoOoO

So this took so long. Life happened. Hopefully, Bloody Chaos wasn’t too dark for you guys, but that’s usually how he threatens people….according to Amber. The offer still stands if you would like your oc in the story as a background character like Lightning Bolt, just pm me their name, cutie mark, a description, type of pony, and how they act.

Many Years of Pain Chapter 16

All in this fic belongs to Nintendo!

Reminder: this is a Link x Mido fic, not a Link x Midna!

OoOoOoOoOoO

Mido and Link made it through the tunnel to the other part of Faron Woods. It was, once again, filled with poisonous gas. This caused Link to sigh.

“Just what we needed,” he said, “poisonous gas.”

Mido looked around and then up at the sky. An idea popped into his head.

“Which way do we need to go again for the last five bugs?” he asked.

“To the west of here,” answered Link, “but there might be some here. There was last time at least. With Midna’s help I jumped all of the gaps, and there we’re buuuu ah!”

Mido had picked up Link and was slowly going up.

“Shout if you see one,” Mido said.

“And what about the ones that are buried underground,” asked Link.

“If you see a spot that might have a bug underground then point it out,” Mido answered.

It took them a bit to locate four of the five bugs. After that Mido flew them to where the forest temple’s entrance was. Link spotted the last bug right away. He killed it, and their light entered the vessel. The Twilight receded, and Link and Mido returned to their usual selves.

“That is all eight,” said Link, “now we just need to get this back to the spirit spring….”

He noticed that Mido wasn’t listening and was staring at the forest temple.

“Mido?” Link asked.

“Did you know most of this place was under water once?” Mido asked.

“No,” answered Link, “I didn’t.”

“Well it was,” said Mido, “about a hundred years ago. That huge tree was once the Great Deku Tree.”

“The Great Deku Tree?” Link wondered.

Mido nodded.

“He had a face and could talk,” said Mido, “he guarded and guided us, the Kokiri. Of course, during the great flood, the Kokiri evolved into the Koroks.”

Mido was silent for a moment. Link frowned when he noticed tears running down Mido’s cheeks.

“The Deku Tree died when the water receded,” Mido continued, “without someone to guide and protect them, the Koroks panicked….they soon died out….”

Mido was sobbing now. Link did the only thing he could do and hugged and comfort Mido. Link understood and pity Mido. Not only was he the last of his kind, but watched helplessly as his people died out. It was a while before Mido calmed down.

“I’m sorry,” Mido apologized while letting go of Link.

“Don’t be,” said Link, “I would be the same way.”

Mido gave him a small smile before sighing.

“Link,” came Midna’s voice, “Mido. Can you hear me?”

‘Yes we can,” answered Link.

“We found out who is behind the Twilight leak-ish,” said Midna, “meet me where the path from Faron Forest ends, and the path through Hyrule Field begins. I’ll explain everything then.”

“All right,” said Link, “meet you there.”

“We shouldn’t keep her waiting,” said Mido.

Link gave him a worried look.

“I’ll be fine,” Mido reassured him.

Link nodded. They left and returned the vessel of light before heading out of the forest. They spotted Midna at the entrance of Hyrule Fields. Midna smiled at Link but frowned at Mido. The Kokiri looked demoralized. Link shook his head signifying that she shouldn’t ask. Midna nodded and cleared her throat.

“Thanks for coming,” she started, “as I had stated that we found out who is behind all of this and you’re not going to like it.”

Link sighed.

“Who is it?” he asked.

“A creature that calls himself Ganondorf,” answered Midna, “but he isn’t. He is but his shadow. A shadow that has a bit of the original Ganondorf’s power.”

Link nodded before noticing Mido looking a bit alarmed. He followed Mido’s gaze to the curtain of Twilight that covered Castle Town. It started to fade before disappearing altogether.

“Ah so it worked,” commented Midna.

Both, Link and Mido, looked at her.

“We found a potential way of getting rid of the Twilight,” Midna explained, “since it worked we can get rid of the rest while you two go and warn Princess Zelda about the shade.”

Link nodded.

“Be safe,” said Midna while the two walked away.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Mido was holding onto Link’s arm for dear life while they walked through Castle Town. He was watching all of the people they walked by.

“I take it you don’t like crowds,” said Link.

Mido shook his head.

“I’m sort of use to big crowds,” he said, “but this. This is beyond big.”

Link laughed.

“Don’t worry,” he said, “we’re almost to the castle gate.”

It took them a bit longer to weave through the crowds to get to the gate. The guards recognized Link and let him and Mido through. It was a while longer for them to climb up the last set of stairs. Mido was huffing and puffing.

“Who in their right mind would put a throne room up on the very top of a castle?” he asked between breaths.

“Not a clue,” answered Link huffing and puffing as well.

They entered the throne room. Zelda got up from the throne and smiled when she saw Link. Link and Mido bowed.

“It is wonderful to see you again Link,” said Zelda before frowning, “I take it you are not here to catch up.”

Link shook his head.

“The Twilight is back,” he said, “and it’s being controlled by Ganondorf’s shade.”

Zelda was now on high alert.

“Tell me all you know,” she said.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Sorry for the long wait. Life happened.

Kingdom Pokemon Chapter 7

All in this fic belongs to Nintendo and Square Enix!

OoOoOoOoOoO

Xemnas groaned as he came two. He looked around at his surroundings.

“A forest?” he asked himself.

He sighed and got up. That’s when he noticed that he was on all fours.

“And I am a Pokemon,” he stated.

He looked at himself and took note of the silver rings.

“It seems that I am an Umbreon,” he said.

He took one last look around before picking a direction and going. He took his time since there was no threat to him. Xemnas would even stop now and then to look around some more.

I can’t tell what forest I am in nor which game, he thought.

His ears moved behind him when there was a snap. He looked behind himself. Something ran behind a tree in the distance.

Was that a greenish gray Houndoom? Xemnas thought.

His eyes narrowed. He knew only one person with that skin color.

So Maleficent possible is behind all of this, he thought.

A girlish and boyish scream came from not too far away. Xemnas looked in the direction they came from. He ran. Once there Xemnas saw Roxas and Xion surrounded by Poochyenas and Mightyenas. Xemnas watched as Roxas landed on a Mightyena’s head and pecked him before getting shaken off. He, also, saw a Poochyena go through Xion making her get creep out. Xemnas took a deep breath.

“Umbreeee!” he shouted getting the attention of the Poochyenas and Mightyenas.

“An Umbreon?” Xemnas heard Roxas asked.

The Mightyenas and Poochyenas turned their attention back to Roxas and Xion. Roxas pecked the head of the same Mightyena while Xion dodged another Mightyena’s shadow ball. She, then, used nightshade on it, making it faint. Xemnas sighed before taking another deep breath.

“Breeeee!” he shouted.

Xemnas backed up a few steps before turning around and running. While the Mightyenas and Poochyena started chasing him. After a few minutes into the chase, it dawned on Xemnas.

Why did I save those two? He asked himself.

He shook his head.

I saved them because I still need them to help complete Kingdom Hearts, he thought, yes that’s-

His thoughts were cut short when a group of Houndooms and Houndours came at him on his left. A Houndoom pinned him down by the neck. A Poochyena was trying to drag him by one of his back legs. A Mightyena bit him on his back. Xemnas gasped in pain.

I…He thought, will not…

He started to spark.

“Die here!” he shouted letting lose an electrical charge shocking and fainting the three Pokemon that had him pinned down.

He got up and winced when pain shot through his back leg. Xemnas shook it off and started to run. Some Houndours and Mightyenas began to chase him again.

Why was I able to use an electric attack? He asked himself, Umbreons can’t learn any.

Xemnas made it to a lake. He jumped in and started swimming to the other side without noticing that his procurers had stopped.

“Superior!” he heard someone shout.

VI? Xemnas wondered.

Just then something underneath him.

Gyarados! He thought in alarm.

He took a second to look for a place to jump to. He leaped to what he thought was a stable branch. It broke and Xemnas fall to the ground; farther injuring his back leg. He slowly got up and limped to the road. The pain had gotten too much for him. He closed his eyes.

“An Umbreon,” he heard a ten-year-old boy exclaimed.

“It’s badly injured,” said a fifteen-year-old boy.

“There’s a Pokemon Center near here,” said a ten-year-old girl.

“Right,” said the ten-year-old boy.

Xemnas felt himself get lifted up. He yelp when his leg was touched. He only opened his eyes to see the road moving below him before slipping into unconsciousness.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Sorry, it’s short, but I didn’t want to go and farther on Xemnas’ tale without getting a bit farther in the other members. As for why Xemnas was able to electric move 1) I asked if it was okay and no one answered so I just went with it 2) Xemnas is possibly the body of Terra that Master Xehanort took/infused with and I picture Terra as a Jolteon.

As for why Xemnas saved Roxas and Xion. Maybe he did it in order to make sure Kingdom Hearts will be completed or maybe a little of Terra came out. Who knows for sure.

Hatred Chapter 6

All in this fic doesn’t belong to me! Ocs do though.

WARNING! Ideological Sensitive! Read at your own risk!

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

The morning of the next day, Naruto’s son’s, Ero’s, team had made it to Konoha. Neji immediately approached the boy. With a swallow, Ero followed him. Neji glanced at the boy and noted the nervous look.

“You are not in trouble,” he said, “so you can calm down.”

Ero didn’t look too sure about that.

“If I haven’t done anything wrong,” he started, “then why do I have to see the Hokage?”

“You know something that no one else does,” Neji answered.

“Ah,” said Ero, “so it’s about my dad then.”

Neji blinked a few times under his mask.

“How-” he started.

“He told me everything about him and this village,” Ero answered the unfinished question, “he was worried about me coming here.”

Neji nodded.

This boy is smarter then he looks, he thought, hopefully, he would tell us something.

Neji knocked on the office door.

“Enter,” said Sasuke from the other side.

Neji opened the door and let Ero in before him. Sasuke looked at the boy. Neji bowed.

“Lord Hokage,” he said, “this is Ero Uzumaki.”

Sasuke gave Ero a small smile. Naruto’s son reluctantly returned it.

I wonder who died and made this bad man Hokage, Ero thought.

“Hello Ero,” Sasuke said gently, “I hope you weren’t too frightened by Mr. Anbu here. He can be quite scary sometimes.”

Sasuke could feel Neji glare at him.

“It was a bit scary,” said Ero, “but Mr. An bu was very nice and tried to keep me calm. Though I’m afraid, I might get questioned by my sensei.”

“Your sensei has nothing to worry about,” said Sasuke, “if he or she still needs reassurance then they can come straight to me.”

“I’ll tell her that then,” Ero said, “you want information about my dad right?”

Sasuke raised an eyebrow.

“Why yes,” he answered, “we just want to know where he is.”

Sadly the information they had was where Ero went to school. And on the home part which was just ‘somewhere in the land of earth.’

“I’m afraid that these lips are sealed,” said Ero, “I will not break my father’s trust. I’m sorry Lord Hokage.”

Sasuke sighed. He should have expected this.

“That’s all right,” he said, “I’ll let you return to your sensei now.”

Ero bowed and headed for the door. He stopped and looked over at Sasuke.

“Dad does work.” Ero said. “he’s work makes him travel a lot. Maybe one day they will have him come here. He left home just a week ago.”

Sasuke nodded.

“I’ll take note of this,” he said, “thank you Ero.”

Ero looked toward the hall before looking back at Sasuke.

“What did dad do wrong?” he asked, “I mean other than running away. Which I do find a bit dumb to get in trouble for.”

Sasuke smiled a little.

“He didn’t do anything wrong,” he answered, “he won’t get in trouble other. I just want to know the reason he left then he will be free to go back to you and your mother.”

Ero thought on this for a moment. He smiled at Sasuke.

“I’ll see if I can convince dad to pay you a little visit,” he said, “as long as you promise that he will not get hurt.”

“I promise,” said Sasuke.

Ero bowed again and left.

“Well at least you got they much out of him,” Neji said.

“Yeah,” agreed Sasuke.

OoOoOoOoOoO

The very next day was the written exams. Ero was with his team. All three were looking around nervously.

“These people look ruthless,” commented Aquila, the only female member of the team.

“Yeah,” agreed Xano, the other male member of the team, “I hate to see them on their bad days.”

Ero swallowed.

“You guys scared too?” asked someone from behind.

All three jumped and looked. A girl about their age with black hair tied up in a ponytail and green eyes was looking at them. With her was a boy with long brown hair, pupiless lavender eyes with strange red triangles under them. And another boy with blonde hair in a high ponytail and charcoal eyes.

“I’m sorry,” apologized the girl, “I didn’t mean to startle you. I’m Mikoto Uchiha, and these are my teammates Gento Hyuga and Kumori Nara.”

“Nice to meet you Mikoto,” said Ero, “I’m Ero Uzumaki, and this is Aquila Wasti and Xano Shado. We are more nervous than anything.”

“It doesn’t help that everyone else here looks like they’re ready to kill at a moment notice,” commented Xano.

“They’re probably just as nervous as us,” said Gento.

“and to some, this is their fourth or fiftieth try,” Kumori said, “I heard the exams are quite hard.”

Ero and his team paled.

“But I’m sure all of us will do just fine,” reassured Mikoto nudging Kumori’s side.

A throat cleared.

“Could everyone please find the seat you were assigned to,” ordered the instructor.

Everyone did as told. The six found themselves separated from their teammates. The instructor handed out the packet of papers before giving instructions. Ero swallowed and stared down at the test.

I’m so screwed, he thought.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Naldosi looked down through the window of a classroom. He turned his head when he senses someone coming.

“Taking a break I see,” said Neji.

“Pretty much,” Naldosi said, “I managed to get one of my targets. I didn’t cause too much of a scene did I?”

“Not that I know of,” answered Neji.

“Ah good,” said Naldosi before looking back at the classroom, “I forgot the Chunin exams started today. My middle son is supposed to be taking it. I wonder how he is doing.”

Neji looked down at the classroom.

“Probably trying his best,” he said, “my cousin’s eldest is doing the exams too. I pray he didn’t inherit too much from his father.”

Naldosi smiled under his mask.

“Haha,” he laughed, “and I pray that if mine were to fail the test that he doesn’t take it to heart.”

Neji tilted his head to one side.

“His elder brother passed with flying colors,” Naldosi answered the unasked question.

“Ah I understand then,” said Neji, “nothing like some sibling rivalry to keep the parents on their toes.”

“Pfft,” Naldosi snorted, “you can say that again. I hope my youngest son doesn’t get in the middle of it when he gets older.”

Naldosi got up from his seat and stretched.

“Whelp I better find those last two and get out of your hair,” he said.

“Will you not stay afterward to see if your son passes the exams?” asked Neji.

“Oh trust me I’ll be here long after they ended,” Naldosi answered before disappearing from the roof.

Neji shook his head and headed off. Naldosi reappeared two buildings away.

That was a close one, he thought.

He looked back at the academy.

Best of luck to you my son, Naldosi thought before going off to ‘look’ for his so-called targets.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Sorry, this one is short and uneventful. I ran out of ideas for this chapter.

Demon Blood Chapter 2

All in this fic belongs to their creators!

Warning! This fic does not follow the manga/the ending of the anime!

Note: The prequel of this fic, Fox Emperor, will be rewritten. This is due to the fact some things that will happen in this fic will no longer make sense int hat fic.

This is Kyuubi talking to Naruto.

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

To say Empress Rolina was surprised would have been an understatement.

“Let me get this straight,” she started, “you, somehow, sneaked passed all of my guards just to see me faster?”

“Yep,” answered Naruto as he took a drink of his water.

They had moved to the dining room so Naruto could eat a bit and tell his story.

“You do know there is a bridge, yes?” Rolina asked.

Naruto blinked causing Rolina to sigh. She rubbed her temples. How this boy managed survived is beyond her.

‘So,” she started again, “what is in the box?”

Naruto looked at the box and pushed it toward Rolina.

“It’s all of the details about the Uchiha Massacre,” he answered.

Rolina’s eyes widen.

“Massacre!?” she exclaimed as she opened the box and grabbed one of the files.

“The third Hokage ordered it,” answered Naruto, “I don’t know why though.”

Rolina glanced inside the box once more. There were a lot of files.

“Tell you what, Naruto,” she said, “Once you finish eating, I want you to go back across the bridge. You need to get Lady Mossa’s blessing even to get the gates to open. I would like to know, sometime, how you managed to climb the walls. Genjilo!”

A guard, dressed like he was of high rank, came to Rolina and bowed.

“Yes your majesty?” he asked.

“When Naruto gets eating, please escort him to Lady Mossa at Higurashi Village and then back here once blessed.”

Genjilo bowed again.

“As you wish your majesty,” he said.

Rolina smiled a bit before going back to reading the files. Once Naruto was done eating; he headed to Higurashi Village with Genjilo. The guard stopped at the gate and looked up at the walls. The walls were made with Howlite stones and were purposely smoothed. Not only that but they, the Solerians, put a spell on them that prevented anyone from using Chakara to climb it. Genjilo looked at Naruto.

“How did you climb the walls?” he asked.

“By using my Chakara,” Naruto answered like it was common sense.

Genjilo looked back at the walls and started to wonder if their spell was weakening. With a sigh, he lifted his left hand and a symbol meaning Open showed up on his palm. The gates slowly opened. Naruto swallowed when he saw how long the bridge was.

I can barely see the end, he thought with a sigh, this is going to be a long walk.

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

Sasuke had come to a gate to a village. He looked around at the outskirts a bit. There was no wall, but the village was big, but not too big. Sasuke took a deep breath and took a step forward.

“Hold right there,” came a voice.

Sasuke looked to his left. There, with arms crossed, was a man with jet black hair tied into a high ponytail, slate-colored eyes, and wearing a blue haori, dark blue haori himo, and white hakame.

“What business do you have here in Higurashi Village?” the man asked.

So that’s what this village name is, Sasuke thought.

“A…fiend of mine went to the island past the bridge,” he answered, “I am merely trying to get to him.”

“No one has walked the bridge since last week,” stated the man.

“He ran across the water,” said Sasuke.

The man raised an eyebrow.

“If that is true,” he started, “there would be no way he could get past the gate. You need a blessing to open it.”

“Oh trust me,” started Sasuke, “if there is a way to get past or do something out of the ordinary, Naruto will find it and use it.”

The man blinked and shook his head. He turned and looked over his shoulder at Sasuke.

“If that is also true then you will need to get your blessing to open the gate and follow this friend,” he said, “follow me, and I’ll take you to Lady Mossa. The name is Narzo Higurashi be the way.”

“Sasuke Uchiha,” Sasuke introduced himself.

“Ah,” said Narzo, ” an Uchiha hm? Then you’ll be most welcomed in Solaria. After all the Uchiha clan has been their allies for years.”

Sasuke took this information in since he knows very little of his clan’s allies.

“Oh,” said Narzo, “is the blonde one your friend?”

Sasuke looked over at the bridge. Naruto was with a well-armored ninja like guard. Naruto looked like he was out of breath.

“Ah young Lord Narzo,” greeted the guard, “is your grandmother here?”

“She is captain Genjilo,” answered Narzo before glancing to Naruto, “I take it that one is here to see her as well.”

“Yes,” said Genjilo, “he somehow managed to climb the wall to get past the gate.”

Narzo’s eyes widened and looked over at Sasuke. The Uchiha gave him an ‘I told you so’ look. Genjilo looked at Sasuke with interest.

“Oh this is Sasuke Uchiha,” introduced Narzo, “he is here for the same reason.”

Genjilo bowed deeply.

“Honored to meet you, my lord,” he said.

Sasuke just nodded and looked back at Naruto. Naruto, in return, looked at him with wide eyes.

“What are you doing here Sasuke?” he asked.

“I could ask you the same thing.” answered the Uchiha, “I saw you run across the water. What was in that box you had with you?”

He saw the name on it but wanted to confirm his suspicion. Naruto, however, clammed up and looked the other way.

“I’m sorry my lord,” said Genjilo, “that is for the empress to know. If she thinks you should be informed of such information, she will tell you her self.”

Sasuke raised an eyebrow and nodded. He had never heard about this empress. Narzo cleared his throat getting all three their attention.

“If you, please follow me,” he said before walking off.

They followed Narzo to a big building. Inside it looked like some sort of temple. There were paintings of all kinds of demons and priests and priestesses on the walls. They were led into a vast room where a group of fifteen people dressed as priest and priestesses sat in a circle. They seem to be praying. Narzo stopped Genjilo, Naruto, and Sasuke and put his finger over his mouth to indicate that they should remain silent. He went to the elder woman that seemed to be leading the prayer.

“There is two men here that need to be blessed grandma Mossa,” Narzo whispered into her ear.

She glanced up to look. She recognized Genjilo right away. Mossa marked Sasuke as an Uchiha but did not know Naruto. She nodded to her grandson.

“We are almost done,” she whispered back, “just need to do the ending prayer.”

Narzo nodded and moved back to their guests. Mossa took a deep breath.

“Dearest ancestors,” she started.

“Dearest ancestors,” repeated the rest that was in the circle.

“We send you out love,” they said in unison, “we send you our joy and happiness. May you continue to watch us as we continue to watch us as we continue living. Til we met one another in the heavens above or the hells below. Amen.”

Those of the circle got up. Most left the room except Mossa. She bowed to Genjilo.

‘It is good to see you are well Genjilo,” she said with a smile, “who do you have with you today?”

“This is Lord Sasuke Uchiha and Lord Naruto Uzumaki,” answered the captain.

“Ah I thought you were an Uchiha,” said Mossa, “you have the look of one.”

Sasuke raised both eyebrows at this. Mossa looked over at Naruto.

“Normally Uzumaki’s have red or brown hair,” she stated, “you are the first I seen with hair as golden as the sun.”

Naruto blushed.

“He is from those that lived outside of Solaria,” commented Genjilo.

“Oh,” Mossa said, “I see. You both require a blessing from your ancestors to even open the gate.”

“Or you could climb the wall,” Naruto said under his breath.

Sasuke nudged him in the side. Naruto glared at him. In return, Sasuke gave him a look.

“I will start with you first Lord Sasuke,” said Mossa moving to were the circle of prayer was, “if you could come and sit in front of me and give me your hands. We shall commune with your ancestors to get your blessing.”

Sasuke did as told.

“Now close your eyes and clear your mind of all things,” Mossa ordered.

Sasuke did just that. He heard Mossa start chanting. Sasuke began to see a man dressed in white and had armor on. His long silver hair was up in a ponytail. He had two blue strips. One on each cheek. Then a beautiful woman appeared beside the man. She wore noble like clothes and had jet black hair that was long. Another woman appeared. This one had silver hair with dog-like ears on her head. Sasuke could have sworn that he saw a dog-like tail. Another man started to appear next to her. He was dressed in red and had silver hair as well as dog-like ears. He couldn’t make out both of them due to how blurry they were.

“You may open your eyes now,” came Mossa, “they have deemed you worthy of receiving their blessing.”

Sasuke opened his eyes.

“I saw two men and two women,” he said.

“Aye,” said Mossa with a smile, “they were your ancestors.”

Sasuke’s eyes widen. He couldn’t believe he got to see his ancestors. He knew next to nothing about them. Mossa laughed.

“I always love seeing this type of reaction from those who got to see their long distanced relatives for the first time,” she commented before looking at Naruto, “your turn.”

Sasuke moved so Naruto could sit. He put his hands in Mossa’s. He closed his eyes as she started chanting.

“I wonder what Naruto’s is,” Sasuke wondered out loud.

“A fox demon,” stated Genjilo, “all Uzumaki’s are related to him. I know this because I was there when Empress Rolina got blessed.”

“I would like to meet this empress,” said Sasuke.

“I was hoping you would say that,” Genjilo said with a smile.

Narzo started to frowned when he heard Naruto’s heavy breathing

That’s not good, he thought.

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

Naruto saw before him a beautiful woman with braided red hair and a fox tail. Her face, however, was blurred. A man started to appear beside only he was completely blurry. Naruto couldn’t see any details about them. He then felt something crawling all over him. He looked to see a bunch of spiders. There was laughter before the scenery changed to that of a field with a red sky. Naruto saw shadows of people he didn’t recognize. There fighting something, but that too was a shadow. There were voices; so many voices.

“Stop please,” begged Naruto, “please make it stop! Stop!”

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

“Mina!” Naruto shouted, “MINA! MINA!”

Mossa stopped and stared at him wide-eyed.

“What is going on with him?” Genjilo asked with concern.

“He is speaking in demon tongue,” answered Mossa, “he is shouting stop.”

“Can you bring him out of it?” asked Narzo, “because I don’t think those glowing marks are normal.”

Mossa now noticed the strange reddish orange marks that were spreading on his arms and his face. She, then, see the spider mark on Naruto’s forehead. Mossa grabbed Naruto’s arms and started chanting. Naruto opened his eyes. Narzo gasped. Naruto’s eyes were slit and red like a demon’s.

“BUR NILZOLO GERA MINTI!” Naruto shouted before collapsing onto the floor.

Narzo was at his side check him. Genjilo starting going over while Sasuke stood there wondering what happened. His eyes narrowed at the glowing marks that were still there. The color and the design seemed familiar. Mossa watched as the spider marking faded away.

“Naruto?” Narzo called out.

The blonde shook his head. He was shaking while he tried to make sense for all he had seen.

“What happened?” asked Genjilo.

“It’s a reaction to the chanting,” said Mossa, “but I can’t tell you what caused it.”

“It might be the seal causing it,” said Sasuke.

“What seal?” asked Mossa.

“The Kyuubi’s seal,” answered Sasuke.

“You mean to tell us that Naruto here is a Jinchuriki?” Genjilo asked.

Sasuke nodded.

Genjilo swallowed.

Rolina isn’t going to like this one bit, he thought.

Narzo looked at Mossa.

“Grandma is there anything you can do for him?” he asked.

Mossa shook her head.

“Unfortunately no,” she answered. “I’m not sure if the marks will go away or not. I do know that as long as he is a Jinchuriki, he cannot be blessed. Someone will have to open and close the gate for him.”

Genjilo nodded in understanding.

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

Naruto opened his eyes slightly to see that he was in front of Kyuubi’s cage. Said demon was looking down at him in concern.

I’m so sorry kit. I truly am.

Naruto reached up to him.

“Shi….ppo….” he said before losing consciousness.

Shippo’s eyes widen. It had been 300 years since anyone called him by that name. Shippo, then, frowned when he remembered why.

Damn you Naraku! He shouted in his mind.

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

Genjilo lifted the unconscious Naruto on his back.

“One of the elders might know what to do,” he said, “You come along Lord Sasuke. I’m sure her majesty will have questions for you.”

Sasuke nodded and looked at Naruto in both concern and curiosity before they headed to the bridge.

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

Sakura looked up at what remained of Naruto’s apartment. She sighed.

“Worried about him?” asked a voice.

She looked to her right to see Neji.

“Yeah,” she answered, “I don’t know why someone would want to kill him. He helped save us from the zero tail.”

“Some people still see him as a monster,” Neji stated.

Sakura frowned. She wished everyone could see Naruto the way she sees him. He may be an idiot sometimes, but he was the nicest guy she knows.

“The Hokage wishes to see us,” said Neji.

Sakura nodded and followed him to the Hokage’s office.

“Lady Tsunade,” Neji bowed.

“Ah Neji and Sakura,” said Tsunade.

She quickly shut the door.

“I’m sending you two, Shino, and Kiba on a secret mission,” she whispered, “you four need to go to Solaria City and meet with the Empress. I’ll show you the way there on this map. No one must know about this. Not even the elders.”

“Why are we going there and meeting with someone so important?” asked Sakura.

“You are going to prevent a massive slaughter,” answered Tsunade.

Neji’s and Sakura’s eyes widen. Now they were curious.

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

Rolina was greatly alarmed when Genjilo came back caring Naruto on his back and with someone she didn’t know.

“What happen?” she asked, “and who is this?”

“This is Sasuke Uchiha,” answered Genjilo.

Rolina frowned. She just got done reading about the massacre. She shook her head. Now was not the time to pity Sasuke.

“What happened to Naruto?” she asked again.

“Possibly a bad reaction to being blessed,” answered Genjilo, “which he isn’t by the way. He is a Jinchuriki.”

Rolina paled.

“When?” she asked almost in an angry tune.

“During his life at Konoha,” answered Sasuke, “I don’t know how old he was when it happened. The adults tend to keep it hush hush.”

Rolina was now furious.

“First they dive one of the Uchiha’s so badly mad that he kidnaps our first emperor and ancestor,” she started, “then they end up killing them all off except for one. Now they have forcefully sealed a demon within one of our own!? This is the last straw!”

She turned to Genjilo.

“Take Naruto and Sasuke to one of the guest rooms,” she ordered, “I will send of Lady Shezzia to tend to Naruto. She might know how to work with that damnable seal. I’m going to send a message to Konoha demanding to see that Hokage of theirs.”

Genjilo nodded, and both carried Naruto and lead Sasuke to a guest room.

Depending on the outcome of the meeting with the Hokage, Rolina thought, I may declare war.

OoOoOoOoOoOoO

I had to improvise a little on a couple of characters. Also, I’m sorry if Sasuke seemed out of character. By the way, if you are wondering why Neji is alive. Well, this fic doesn’t follow the manga/anime anymore so I figure I can bring him back to life.

Illidan was in the center or the Illidari headquarters. The center was where the undead dragons stayed. Illidan had his arms crossed while watching Korialstrasz testing out something he learned from Helino. Helino was a black dragon who was killed by Deathwing when he needed someone to use for an experiment. Vaeelairan came up to Illidan.

“General I have a bit of an update,” he said.

Illidan glanced at him.

“Go ahead,” he ordered.

“The druids and the heroes of the Alliance and Horde have taken the Firelands,” said Vaeelairan, “the fire lord Ragnaros, has fallen. There’s talk that the aspects plus Thrall are attempting to take a version of the demon soul. They plan on using it against Deathwing.”

Illidan nodded before giving him a look.

“May I ask how you got this information?” he asked.

“I still have a few living friends,” Vaeelairan answered, “besides not all druids like that twin of yours.”

Illidan smiled a bit.

“If you hear anymore,” he started, “please let me know.”

Vaeelairan nodded and left. Korialstrasz, at this point, had stopped what he was doing and was looking at one of the openings near the top of the center. An undead blue dragon flew through it and landed on a landing platform. Korialstrasz sighed as his thoughts went to his memories of Dalaran, of Rhonin and Vereesa, and, most of all, his beloved queen.

“What’s on your mind?” Illidan asked.

Korialstrasz jumped. Illidan had come and stood right beside him. Korialstrasz looked at the ground.

“Just thinking about the past,” he finally answered.

“Ah,” said Illidan.

They stood there in silence for a bit.

“You know,” started Illidan braking the silence, “you can go and see Master Rhonin and Lady Vereesa. You are not bound here.”

Korialstrasz looked at him in disbelief for a moment before he smiled.

“Thank you,” he said before changing into his skeletal dragon form.

“I wish you could go see that beloved of yours as well, but I think she’s a bit busy at the moment,” said Illidan.

Korialstrasz nodded and flew up.

“I’ll be back before long,” he said, “I may not be bound to here, but it is my home now.”

Illidan smiled.

“It’s a home for all of us,” he said, “stay clear of Wyrmrest Temple. It’s crawling with Twilight Drakes still.”

Korialstrasz nodded again before he left. Illidan sighed and headed to his throne.

OoOoOoOoOoO

To say Malfurion was a little annoyed would be an understatement. All through the fight for the Firelands, he kept getting glares from Varendar. He knew why too. He cast Illidan out just like he did when his twin absorbed the Skull of Gul’dan and turned into a half demon. Malfurion took another gulp of wine from his cup as he watched the people of Darnassus go about their night on the balcony of his home.

“Maybe I was wrong to cast him out again,” he wondered out loud.

“Doubting yourself again, my love?” came a sweet and yet beautiful voice.

Malfurion looked over his shoulder to see his beloved wife, Tyrande. She sat down on the chair on the other side of the small table. Tyrande glanced over at Malfurion with a concerned look. There was silence between the two for a bit.

“Am I an idiot?” Malfurion asked.

Tyrande was a bit taken back by the question.

“I don’t think you are,” she answered, you may do rash things sometimes, but you’re not an idiot.”

“Sometimes I wonder about that,” said Malfurion before taking another gulp of his wine, “and sometimes I wonder, if the roles were reverse, would Illidan have acted the same?”

Tyrande watched Malfurion take another big gulp of his wine. Her eyes narrowed.

He was like this when I told him of Illidan’s death, she thought, He may act like Illidan is some sort of curse, but deep down in his heart he still loves his twin.

“Mal,” Tyrande started, “how much wine have you had?”

Malfurion looked at her. That’s when Tyrande saw how unfocused his eyes were. Malfurion, then, looked down at the ground. Tyrande saw the two empty wine bottles on the ground. She sighed and got up. She took the cup out of her husband’s hand, put it on the table, and pulled him up out of his set.

“That’s enough alcohol for you,” she ordered, “time for bed.”

“Yes mother,” Malfurion said sarcastically.

Tyrande gave him a look causing him to flinch.

“Sorry,” he said.

“It’s okay,” said Tyrande, “jerk.”

Both were smiling a little as they made their way to the bedroom. Malfurion instantly fell asleep when he laid down on the bed. Tyrande smiled as she closed the door.

One day those two will get together and laugh at these events, she thought, that’ll be the day when all will be at peace.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Korialstrasz landed a bit ways from the teleporting crystal before changing to his humanoid form. He thought it best to take the crystal instead of landing at, well, Krasus’ Landing. He didn’t wish to scare anyone. He put his hood up before touching the crystal. With a flash, he ported to the inside of one of the buildings in Runweaver Square. He staggered a bit as he went over to hold on to the wall. Two more people ported in and, like Korialstrasz, staggered a bit.

“Apologizes,” said a Kirin’Tor mage, “we’re having issues with the teleporting crystals. The dizziness should go away in a bit. If not, please go to the infirmary.”

Korialstrasz managed to go down the stairs to the outside world. He heard someone trip. He managed to catch them. It was a female Forsaken Rogue.

“I should have flown here instead,” she stated before looking up at Korialstrasz, “thanks.”

Korialstrasz nodded. Someone scoffed. A male Worgen Druid slowly walked down the stairs.

“For a Rogue, Urscha,” he started, “you are quite clumsy.”

“Oh, hush Kyeersh,” Urscha said, “thanks again. Come on you dog or all of the leather scraped are going to be sold out at the Auction House.”

“I’m coming,” said Kyeersh, “I’m coming.”

Korialstrasz smiled. It was good to see those of the opposite faction treat each other like friends. The undead dragon made his way to The Violet Citadel. He looked around. He spotted Vereesa giving orders to one of her rangers. The ranger nodded and walked away. Vereesa, feeling eyes on her, looked at Korialstrasz. She tilted her head. She couldn’t see his face due to the hood. Korialstrasz wine to her.

“You are looking well Vereesa,” he said, “how are the twins?”

Vereesa’s eyes widen upon recognizing the voice.

“Karsus?” she asked.

Korialstrasz put a finger to his lips and nodded. It took all of Vereesa’s willpower to not scream out in joy. She hugged him instead. Korialstrasz chuckled. Rhonin was at the top of the staircase. He just ported down from the top of the tower. He raised an eyebrow upon seeing Vereesa hugging someone. She noticed him and waved him over. Rhonin went to them.

“Rhonin this is Karsus,” Vereesa said in excitement, “he’s back with us.”

Rhonin stared wide-eyed at Korialstrasz. The undead dragon just smiled at him nervously.

“Wha-” Rhonin started, “we were told that you died.”

“I did,” said Korialstrasz, “and I still am.”

Both, Rhonin and Vereesa, looked at him in confusion. Korialstrasz sighed.

“You two might want to sit down,” he started, “because it’s a long story.”

OoOoOoOoOoO

Illidan was on his throne reading a message from Deathrin. It mostly concerns about the path Garrosh was on. Deathrin was very worried about how it would affect the fate of the Blood Elves. Mostly impotently how it would change the future of his twin sister.

Might have to reassign my Horde soldiers, he thought, maybe convince some of them to come here…

Someone clearing their throat cause Illidan to look up. It was Raknaal and behind him was none other then Thrall.

“He wishes to have a word with you, general,” said the Worgen.

Illidan nodded. Raknaal turned to wait at the doorway.

“No funny business Orc or else,” he warned.

Thrall just looked at the Worgen in a bit or alarmed. Illidan shook his head.

“Ignore him,” he said, “he has been like that since we were cast out of Mt. Hyjal. Now, what did you wish to speak to me about?”

Thrall looked up at Illidan.

“I was wondering if you and your Illidari will aid us in bring down Deathwing,” he answered, “with your numbers, we might stand a chance.

Illidan raised his eyebrow.

“I was told that you and the aspects were going to try and get a version of the Demon Soul,” he said causing Thrall to give him a bit of a shocked look, “did that not happen?”

“No,” answered Thrall getting over his shock, “we have the Demon Soul.”

“Then why do you need us?” Illidan asked, “you have the aspects, an item Deathwing, himself, crafted, and you, a most powerful Shaman that probably will never die. Even by old age. It seems like to me that we are not needed.”

Thrall was getting a little bit frustrated.

“With those, alone, we can not defeat Deathwing,” he said, “he and those that follow his ruling-”

“Oh so you want us to help keep the minions away so you can blast him,” interrupted Illidan, “why didn’t you say that from the beginning?”

“So you will help?” asked Thrall.

“I’ll have to speak with my commanders,” answered Illidan, “then we’ll see.”

Thrall bowed.

“Thank you,” he said.

Illidan nodded and watched Raknaal escort the Shaman out.

This is going to be interesting, he thought before going to wright Deathrin back.

OoOoOoOoOoO

Sorry, it took so long to update. Life has been busy.

Side note: Tyrande will not act the way she does in the game. I hate how Blizzard wrote her.

Legacy of Usopp Chapter 2

This chapter is written by Fuzzylittlekitty (she is couldn’t asleep so I’m posting it)! I edited for her!

FLK FLK FLK FLK FLK FLK FLK FLK

The days had passed and Coby couldn’t get Usopp to talk about what happened. Coby sighed. He was in his office on the Marine side of the island. There was a few towns here and there, but they weren’t as grand as the city Marina. That’s where the Marine building was.

The pirate’s had their own city too. They called it Utopia. Though most of their city was surrounded by three different graveyards. Coby frowned. They had to bury Luffy and the others at graveyard number one, filling up the spaces.

As for the Thousand Sunny, Usopp made it clear that he didn’t want anyone on there ’till he got there. He also mention something about ‘the treasure’. That made Coby a bit curious, but he just sent a few Marines there to guard it.

Coby’s snail-phone rang. He picked it up. He could hear an inhuman roar on the other end. Coby suddenly was on alert.

“What’s going on?” he asked.

“It’s Usopp,” answered Dr. Sarvin, “He’s turned into something I can’t explain. Just hurry and get your ass here now!”

There was a crash before Dr. Sarvin hanged up. Coby jumped up and got his coat. He yelled for Helmeppo to follow him. They got on their horses and galloped all the way to Utopia’s hospital. Once they got to the floor Usopp was on, they were in shook. Usopp was some kind of dark purple angle with strange looking wings. His hair look like white fire and the wings were black. White stars twinkled in the wings while black stars twinkled in the hair. Coby and Helmeppo could pick out the big dipper, little dipper and other consolations in them.

Usopp growled and hissed at them. He was on all fours. Coby looked at the claw like hands and feet. Usopp’s mouth was in a jagged style (think of Naruto’s four tail form for the mouth). He swallowed. Usopp looked at him and growled. Coby looked at Dr. Sarvin.

“What where you doing to him before he changed?” he asked.

“He was complaining about pain on the burnt side of his face,” answered Dr. Sarvin, “so I had ordered a nurse to get me a few things to relieve it. That’s when he turned.”

“Has he harmed anyone?” asked Helmeppo.

“No,” answered Dr. Sarvin, “all he did was brake the door and a few glass bottles full of medicine. He’s been staying right there.”

Usopp roared. Helmeppo raised his blades. Usopp looked at him and growled. He looked like he was ready to attack Helmeppo if he tried anything.

“Helmeppo,” said Coby, “put your blades away.”

Helmeppo nodded. He slowly put them away. Usopp relax some. He looked at Coby as he got on his knees and slowly made his way to Usopp. Coby had is hands up to show Usopp that he wasn’t going to do anything.

“It’s all right,” said Coby, “I just want to get near you to help you. If you don’t mind changing back.”

“I don’t know how,” said Usopp causing Coby to jump, “I don’t even know how to control this Devil Fruit.”

Coby jumped a little not excepting Usopp to be able to spoke in that form.

“Is it okay if I put seastone cuffs on you?” he asked, “it’s just to change you back.”

Usopp stared at Coby for a minuet before nodding. Coby looked back at Helmeppo.

“Do you have one on you?” he asked.

Helmeppo nodded. He grabbed the one he hang off of one of is belt loops and handed it Coby. Coby slowly and gently put them on Usopp’s wrists. Usopp turned back and fall into Coby’s arms.

“You okay?” Coby asked.

“Yeah,” Usopp answered, “just a bit tired.”

“We’ll take you back to your room,” said Coby, “is okay if the cuffs stay on?”

“That’s fine,” Usopp answered, “…I’m ready to talk as well….”

Coby nodded. With the help from Helmeppo, they put Usopp back on his bed. With a sigh Usopp told them every thing that had happen on that night, including what was still on the ship, One Piece.

“I see,” said Coby, “I’ll make sure no one touches it.”

“Thank you,” said Usopp.

“Coby,” said Helmeppo, “I suggest, when Usopp gets out of here, that we try to help him control this Devil Fruit power.”

“That is a good idea,” said Coby, “but I don’t know. We know nothing about this fruit…not even it’s name.”

“I tend to call it the shade shade fruit,” said Usopp.

“It’ll be fun,” said Helmeppo, “it’ll also be an adventure.”

Excitement filled Coby. They hadn’t had an adventure in a long time. He sighed in defeat.

“Fine then,” he said, “but you’re cleaning up the messes he makes.”

Helmeppo smiled. Usopp was well enough to leave the hospital a few days later. Coby had gotten him a horse to ride to the Marine base. Usopp wasn’t too happy about that. In fact he refused to go near it ’till ether Helmeppo or Coby came to escort him up. Coby had warn him that if any kind of harm came to any of the Marines here, Usopp will be locked up. Same rules applied to the Marines if they harmed a pirate citizen. Though Coby couldn’t due anything to the visiting Marines that were a higher rank then him.

Usopp followed Helmeppo down a trail from the Marine’s training field to the forest area. They stepped off the trail and headed into a deeper part of the forest. Usopp looked back at the path. It was a red brick path. Coby told him that these paths connected the towns and cities together, including the pirate ones.

“All right,” said Helmeppo, “this is where we’ll train at. Let’s, first, work on that form you were in days ago.”

Usopp swallowed. He closed his eyes and held his hands out on his sides (like a T). Black energy balls fired and hit two trees. Their middles blasted out causing the top half to fall. Usopp blushed.

“Just calm down,” said Helmeppo, “just picture the form in your head.”

Usopp nodded. He closed his eyes again. There was guns being fired that scared him. Helmeppo looked back at the direction of the Marine base in announce. He looked to were Usopp was only to find Maroon smoke being blown away by the breeze.

“Usopp?” asked Helmeppo.

Usopp opened his eyes. He was in a whole different place. There was maroon and purple clouds every where and that was it. There was no sky and no ground. Bright purple lightning flashed, but didn’t hit anything.

“Usopp!” he heard Helmeppo’s voice eco, “Usopp where are you?”

Usopp swallowed and closed his eyes again. When he open them, he was still in this strange place. He started to panic and then he started to change form.

“Let me out!” he shouted, “let me leave this place!”

Usopp disappeared and then reappeared in the real world. Helmeppo found him in his angle form on his knees with his head on the ground with his hands covering his head. Usopp was shaking. Helmeppo got on the ground beside him and put his hand on his shoulder blade.

“Usopp you’re okay,” said Helmeppo, “there’s nothing to hurt you.”

“What happen?” asked Coby coming up to him.

He had made his way down the path when he herd the trees fall with a big thud.

“I don’t know,” answered Helmeppo, “he just disappeared as a human and then reappeared like this.”

Coby was on Usopp’s other side now. Guns fire off again causing Usopp to finch.

“It’s okay Usopp,” Coby said, “it’s just the solders practicing.”

“I was in a different world,” said Usopp, “I couldn’t leave it.”

I have to figure out how to better understand this fruit, Coby thought, it’s nothing I have ever seen before.

Soon Usopp calm down enough to change back. He brushed his hair our of the way of his left eye. He had his hair down for one reason only, to cover the right side of his face. That side was so burnt the doctors had to get a surgeon from the Marine hospital to do a skin graph. Usopp wasn’t sure what that was nor was he going to ask. One thing is for sure is that he could no longer see through his right eye. Usopp wondered if, after his devil fruit training, they would let him try practicing his aiming.

They continued his training for the day. He had half way managed to change at will. It was still very hard for him. He still couldn’t control the random black energy balls and the consent porting to this other world. He would always panic would he got stuck there and when he couldn’t turn back. He would scratch at his arms making them bleed when he did turn back. It was so bad that Coby had to go get the first aid to bandage them up.

FLK FLK FLK FLK FLK FLK FLK FLK

Coby was still up. He was at the library at Marina in the restricted area. He was trying to find anything that was about the fruit that the Straw Hat crew found. Coby grabbed a book titled “Devil Fruits of The World”.

This has got to have something about the shade shade fruit, Coby thought.

He didn’t get but two pages in when Helmeppo came up with a paper in his hand.

“We have a problem,” he said before holdup the paper.

It was a wanted poster. Coby’s eyes widen when he saw who the picture was of. It was Usopp in his angel form. Coby closed the book, threw it on the table, stood up, and grabbed the poster. He’s heart was pounding very fast when he read the 500,000,000 beri bounty and the note: last member of the Straw Hats. Coby’s heart slowed a bit when he saw the name, Shadow Angle – real name unknown, in bold letters. Though that didn’t mean they should relax.

“Helmeppo-” Coby started.

“I have all ready made sure no one speaks of Usopp’s angle form,” Helmeppo finished, “the pirates have done said that they will not let a fellow brother suffer in the hands of a “pure” Marine.”

Coby smiled. Leave it to the pirates to look out for one of their own.

“Make sure the other Marines are on high alert for bounty hunters,” said Coby, “I also want boat checks out to make sure no one is hiding a hunter or spys.”

“Right a way Coby,” said Helmeppo saluting and then leaving.

Coby sighed.

Don’t worry Usopp, he thought, I’ll make sure you’re safe here.

He looked back down at the book.

Even if it means my death, he thought, because you’re the last thing I have left of Luffy.
