Sakura's New Power
As Naruto, Kakashi, and myself approached the Mist, I got the strangest feeling that someone was still watching me. But it was more extreme this time.
Okay now this is starting to get out of hand if it is going to mess with my missions. I can't believe I'm asking you, but do you have the faintest idea as to why I keep having this feeling demon? I thought.
'Hey don't ask me I'm as stumped on this one as you are. And you better get that confused look off your face Saku, Naruto and Kakashi are going to notice if you don't do it soon' it said.
And with that I wiped my face of all emotion. I forgot to hide the face expressions because Tsunade told us that we were not to wear our ANBU masks, to avoid suspicion. So of course I forgot that I wasn't hiding under my mask.
Luckily for me the boys didn't notice.
"So where should we start Kakashi?" Naruto asked.
"We can cover more ground by splitting up. So Naruto you go north, Sakura you go east, and I will head west," Kakashi said and then he handed out the comlinks, "When you find infromation about the scroll use this to contact me, or vice versa. From what we know it may be located in the east part of the Mist. So Sakura I need you to use your special technique that I taught you."
"Hai," I said with pride in my voice.
"Whoa wait a sec, since when did you teach Sakura-chan a new technique Kakashi? And why didn't I know about it Sakura-chan," Naruto pouted.
"This is hardly the time to be talking about it Nar-" I said.
"Hey, aren't we supposed to know what everyone on their team can do? So if you won't tell me Kakashi will, right Kakashi-sensei?" Naruto interrupted.
"He does have a point Sakura," Kakashi stated to me, "Okay I will make this quick so we can get started. Sakura has the rare Rinnegan, except her's seems to work a little differently. It came to her eyes during our regular training sessions. Besides the powers of the Rinnegan she also has the genjutesu level of the Shaningan in her Rinnegan, though she has always had an unusal affinty for genjutsu. So I taught her a technique that she can use to track anything, to track things better than Inzuka's can."
Naruto's mouth dropped. Inzukas were the best trackers in the Leaf, or so he thought. And me of all people was hiding this from him.
"So she's that good with the Rinnegan?" Naruto asked seriously.
"Yes she is, probably because of her perfect chakra control. Anyways by using the Rinnegan she is able to use any of the main elements. By combining certain elements she is able to track anything down including things as small as Shino's bugs."
"Okay I think he knows enough for now Kakashi. Now let's get this over with," I said, then I was enveloped by cherry blossom petals, and then disappeared.
"She's right Naruto. Now go and remember to contact me if you find anything," Kakashi said.
"Hai, sensei," Naruto said then he disappeared in a puff of smoke.
My petals led me to a street corner; luckily no one was there to see me and the cherry blossom petals.
I was hoping to tell him later on. Oh well guess he knows now, I sighed mentally.
'Hey! How long did you think you could hide that information from me Saku? I'm really hurt that you didn't share your rare abilities with me' my demon faked cried.
Sorry I can't tell you everything you nosy demon. And I'm still learning how to control it...it gives me so much power that I was worried about anyone knowing except for Kakashi and Tsunade.
'Well don't be a downer, I want to see this Rinnegan in action my dear Saku' it replied.
You only act like that because you want to sweet talk yourself out of my body. Well sorry not gunna work...even though it would be the best thing ever if you were gone.
'Fine be that way. At least use the Rinnegan so we can find the scroll.'
I activated her Rinnegan. Because it had some of the properties of the Shaningan the color was not grey but a dull red with grey rings around it.
I focused on the scroll and my Rinnegan, using the elements lightning for speed and earth to cover more ground, took me to the sight of a temple...with the scroll inside. I turned on the comlink and told Naruto and Kakashi the coordinates.
"Geez Sakura-chan that was really fast. You did it in like what one minute flat? I need to see what that Rinnegan looks like," Naruto said giddily through the link.
I laughed mentally. Even when this scroll could mean the end of him from the Akatsuki he still thought more about me than himself.
When I got to the temple I wasn't surprised by how small it was. It had a reddish roof coloring with grey stone on the rest of the building. And it seemed to be deserted, since I couldn't sense any chakra signatures.
I pulled my hair into a ponytail because I didn't want it to get in the way. My hair had grown mid-back again but was still as beautiful as ever for a ninja, in my opinion.
I thought that I should wait for Naruto and Kakashi to come so I sat down on the temple's steps and waited. And, just to be safe, I activated my Rinnegan if any unwanted visitors came along.
What's taking them so long; they should be here by now, I thought with a hint of worry.
And to make matters worse the feeling of someone watching me intensified. I felt as if someone was burning a hole through my head by staring.
Just as I got into a fighting stance I heard a rustle in the bushes.
There, I thought.
I pounced on to the bush, and whoever was in it, only to find yellow hair with now a big bump on top of his head, holding his hands up in surrender.
"Please don't hurt me Sakura-chan! I wasn't doing anything, I just got here before you attacked me," Naruto pleaded.
I let out a sigh of relief, "Oh it's just you I'm sorry."
"I wouldn't be so sure of that dearest sister," a deep voice said from behind me.
