Unsealed Time Rift

Adventure

Prologue

It was a bright sunny day in Konoha and Team 7 were gathered on Training Ground 3 waiting on their, as always, late sensei. Due to the usual expectations of Kakashi being hours late at a time to anything he hasn't deemed important, such as the release of a new book in the 'Icha Icha' series by Jiraiya of the Sennin. After exhausting his energy trying to have a civil conversation with either Sakura or Sasuke, Naruto had begun to scavenge around the Training Ground and came across an interesting gap in the structure of the Memorial Stone shaped like a kunai facing the sky. Reaching his hand into the gap, he wriggled and pushed until his hand made contact with the glint that had been reflecting the light.

"Yo." Kakashi greeted his team as he arrived three hours late. Naruto was still wrist deep in the Memorial, and didn't bother with shouting "You're late!" At their sensei along with Sakura.

This, being as unusual as it was, gained everyone's attention. Sakura stared at Naruto openly whilst Sasuke watched, slightly concerned, from the corner of he's eye. Kakashi eye-smiled at Naruto and asked if something was up, receiving a vague. "Fine." In reply.

As Kakashi turned back to the other two to question if Naruto had shown any other unusual reactions, Naruto managed to pull both his hand and what he'd found out from under the Memorial.

"Hey, Sensei! What's this for?" Naruto called out holding up a three-pronged kunai with a yellow seal tag wrapped around the handle.

Kakashi turned to see what Naruto was asking about before his lone visible eye widened in panic. "Naruto! Put that back!" He cried out.

There was a loud gush of air from the gap which Naruto had just removed the three-pronged kunai knife from, the rush blowing Naruto's hair forwards into his eyes as he stumbled forwards slightly.

With a loud gurgled swoosh and cracking sounds, a swirling tornado of light exploded from within the gap and dragged a loudly protesting Naruto into its clutches. As he was whipped higher into the air, he heard his team cry out his name and felt as his sensei grabbed him by the waist and tucked Naruto's head close to his neck and shoulder, shielding him from the harsh tendrils of glowing wind.

At the sound of a high pitched screeched and a startled yell, both Sasuke and Sakura were roped into the glowing tornado with their team mate and sensei.

"Grab hold of each other!" Kakashi shouted his order, watching as Sasuke grabbed Sakura's arm. "Now grab my hand!" He finished holding his hand towards the pair. Sasuke, keeping a firm grip on Sakura, reached out and latched onto Kakashi's hand and was then yanked into Kakashi's protective embrace also. Two shadow clones of Kakashi suddenly appeared behind the genin and held the three between them, keeping them as safe as possible.

The glowing tornado suddenly disappeared, leaving every member of Kakashi's Team 7 stranded in mid-air.

"Uh, oh." Naruto muttered before all four began to fall. With a yell, Naruto scrunched his eye shut and held onto Kakashi tightly.

Sasuke landed messily on his feet beside Kakashi who was simultaneously holding Sakura up by her arm and supporting Naruto who had clung to him like a baby monkey and carried on yelling.

"Dobe! We're on the ground!" Sasuke snapped causing Naruto to quiet down and open one eye cautiously.

"Oh yeah. We are." He blinked owlishly.

"Maa, maa." Kakashi started. "You're so much trouble, Naruto." He finished with his infamous eye-smile.

Naruto tilts his head up to look at his sensei with a deadpan expression. "Pervert." He utters as he lets go and drops to the floor. Kakashi adopts a wounded look and presses a hand to his heart.

"Such disrespect from one of my cute little genin." He mock whines.

"Woah!" A loud voice suddenly exclaims from behind the group. "That was awesome!"

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.

This is gr...
