Chapter Twelve: Golden Snake Eyes And Curse Marks

On several occasions, we had many encounters with ninja who tried to attack us by being Naruto. Sadly their little plan didn't work. Since Naruto and I had a special connection with each other, I knew who the fake was. But we were somehow separated. Naruto and I got stuck fighting off a damn snake while Sasuke and Sakura fought off the real enemy. Luckily for us, we were able to defeat the damn serpent. We quickly took off to help our teammates. Meanwhile, Sasuke tried to get the opponent to leave them alone by giving her the scroll. But before he could, Naruto lunged out and snatched the scroll out of the Uchiha's hand.

"Sasuke, you're nothing but a coward! We're not going to give up that easily! Kazumi! Catch." Naruto yelled as he threw it towards me.

I caught the scroll and placed it in my pouch. As soon the grass ninja went on to attack, another damn snake appeared. However, Naruto was quick enough to stop it. But when he did, I felt the Nine-Tails' chakra appear. Somehow Naruto was able called it forward. But then I saw the Grass ninja using some type of hand seal, causing their fingers to light up with purple flames. She then thrusts her hand forward, striking Naruto in the stomach. I lunged forward and sliced through the ninja's tongue to free Naruto. After I caught him, I carefully sat Naruto down and turned towards Sasuke.

"Uchiha! Snap the hell out of it right now! We don't need you acting like this!" I yelled. . I jumped back and punch Sasuke to snap him out of his trance. As soon as he realized where he was, he looked at me for a minute.

"Kazumi?" he asked.

"Come on, Sasuke. We don't need losing your sanity." I told him. We need to retreat and fast. There's no way we can fight her off. Not like this."

"Yeah, you're right." he said. "But before we do, I want to try something. I think I may have an idea that might work."

"Huh? What is it?" I asked.

"Before I tell you, I need to ask you something." He said. "Can you perform any wind attacks?"

"Yeah. Why do you ask?" I asked.

"I'm going to execute a fire attack once I get her immobile." He explained. "If I combine my fire attack with your wind attack…"

"Then that would make the attack twice as strong." I finished. "A combination attack with Wind and Fire is dangerous and devastating for any opponent."

"Exactly." He said. "While I fight him, throw shuriken at him. I need as much help distracting her. Just be sure that you don't hit me in the process."

"You're underestimating me, Uchiha." I told him. "I'm pretty good with kunai, shuriken and especially my katana."

"All right, then let's get started." He said, closing his eyes. When he reopened them, he revealed his Sharingan.

"You do your part and I'll do mine." I told him.

With that, Sasuke took off, heading right for the Grass Nin. As he fought, I took aim and threw my shuriken when he wasn't in the way. So far I haven't touched him, but I was succeeding with distraction the Grass Nin, ever so often. I paid close attention to Sasuke's actions and found that he was able to wrapped the ninja with ninja wire. He jumped back over to me and landed on my right. That's when he tightened the wire, trapping the ninja in place.

"Now, Kazumi!" he yelled through clenched teeth.

"Right!" I said as I performed the right hand signs. "Here we go, Uchiha! Wind Style: Wind Dragon Breath!" I blew out a jet a wind, which created a straight path towards the Grass Ninja, covering her body.

"Fire Style, Dragon Fire Flame Jutsu." Sasuke yelled.

As soon as Sasuke's fire trail touch my wind attack, the flame shot forward towards that direction. Before long, it collided with the Grass Nin. We continued to hold our attacks as our enemy screamed in pain. We stopped once we figured the girl was dead. I fell to one knee, trying to catch my breath. Fighting off a damn snake then dealing with a Grass Nin was no easy feat.

"Is… is she… dead?" I asked, out of breath.

"I… I think so." Sasuke replied the same way.

At first, it was quiet, but that suddenly came to an end. We started hearing laughing. Our heads shot up and found that it was coming from the ninja. We stood there in silence. Right before us, the Grass Nina broke free from our wires. This was impossible. That attack should have killed her. And there she was, standing, walking, talking, as if nothing happened at all.

"What the….? That girl should be dead." Sasuke said in shock.

"There's just no way. This girl isn't human." I told him.

"You're correct, I'm not human. You're a very observant one." The Grass ninja smirked. "I expected nothing less from you, Kazumi."

When the Grass Ninja looked up, we saw her face peeling off. But that wasn't what caught my attention, instead, it was her eyes. They were a golden-yellow with a slit in the middle of them both. They looked exactly like eyes of a snake. At that moment, I didn't know what came over me. I found that I couldn't move, no matter how hard I tried to make myself do so.

"Kazumi? Kazumi, what's wrong?" Sasuke asked but I didn't answer.

"Heh, sorry but your little friend can't hear you." the Grass Nin taunted.

"Who are you? What the hell do you want?" Sasuke demanded.

"She, she's the one. Her eyes. The same as the ones I saw in my nightmares." I thought to myself. Even though the fear was slowly increasing, I also started feeling anger burn in my chest as well. "No! A ninja must never show their emotions. No matter what type of situation they are in." I thought. "I can't allow her to get the best of me. I can't!"

Before Sasuke and I could move to attack, the Sound Nin, who we found that his name was Orochimaru, performed some jutsu that froze our movements. As we stood there, he thrusts his arm forward, extending it to an unnatural length. The next thing I knew, he had his hand wrapped around my throat. He instantly recoils his arm back to its normal length. He just held me just inches away from his body. I still wasn't able to move, so I couldn't fight to free myself.

"This is a grand opportunity for me to take what's mine." He hissed. "But sadly, it's not your time yet. I have other affairs to accomplish before resuming my plans I have for you. A certain Uchiha has captured my attention."

"What…? What do you want… with me and Sasuke?" I strained out.

"You'll find out very soon, my dear, Kazumi." He hissed.

Orochimaru lifted me higher into the air and extended his arm once more. He slammed me through several branches high above before bring me down, colliding with a much thicker branch. He released his hold as soon as I was down. During the impact, my head also slammed against the branch, dazing me. I looked through blurred eyes and saw Sasuke standing there, not moving. Before long, I blacked out.

When I regained consciousness, I found myself staring up at a… at a tree stump. I slowly sat myself up and looked around. Right beside me laid an unconscious Naruto and Sasuke. Just as I moved, a pulsating pain appeared on the left side of my head. Apparently that hit to the head did more damage than I thought. I was still feeling the effects.

"Kazumi, you're awake!" I heard Sakura. I looked to my left to see her sitting beside Sasuke.

"Sakura?" I asked, a little confused. "What happened?"

"I brought you and the others here." She explained.

"What? Hey wait. Where's that snake, Orochimaru?" I quickly asked. she shook her head.

"He vanished." She answered. "But not before…"

"Huh? Not before what?" I asked. "What is it Sakura? What happened when I was out?"

"Orochimaru bit Sasuke in the neck and a strange mark appeared. The next thing I knew was he started screaming in pain." She explained. I slowly got up and looked at Sasuke's neck. Just like Sakura said, there was a strange looking mark there as clear as day. "Before long, he just passed out."

"And I see that Naruto hasn't wakened up from his own attack." I said quietly. I soon turned back towards Sakura. "You should get some rest. You've done your part, so now it's my turn."

"Huh? Are you sure?" she asked.

"Sakura, go on. You can barely stay awake now." I told her. "I've been asleep, so I won't be going back any time soon."

"All right. If you're sure." She said, I just nodded my head.

I watched Sakura sit down and lay against the wall of the tree. Before long, she was asleep. I soon turned my sights back outside. So far, I didn't see or sense anything. So I was hoping that we were in the clear, for now at least. I sat there in Indian Style as I kept my eyes on the area in my sights. I soon glanced back and looked at my teammates. My eyes soon landed on Naruto.

"I really don't think that I'll be able to communicate with him in that state." I thought to myself. "I'm hoping that he regains conscious soon. That goes for Sasuke as well."

I turned back around and sat there quietly. The events that occurred before I was knocked out played inside my head. I couldn't get Orochimaru's eyes out of my thoughts, no matter how hard I tried to think about something else. All I knew was he was the enemy, even in my nightmares. And it was always Kiyiya who would run off and aim for his throat.

"Kiyiya, can you hear me?" I thought as I tried to communicate with her.

"Hmm? What is it, pup?" she responded.

"Do you have any idea why Orochimaru is after me?" I asked her. "Because he said that I had something he wanted."

"Unfortunately I don't, pup." She said. "All I do know is that he's an enemy. And if he is after you, he might be after me as well."

"What the hell did he meant by that." I growled.


"This is a grand opportunity for me to take what's mine." He hissed. "But sadly, it's not your time yet. I have other affairs to accomplish before resuming my plans I have for you. A certain Uchiha has captured my attention."

End of flashback…

"Pup, now is not the time to think about that right now." Kiyiya said. "You have to look out for your teammates. An enemy could attack without warning."

"Yeah, you're right." I agreed. "We'll have plenty of time to deal with this later. Like after the exams."

A few hours later the sun finally revealed itself, indicating that it was morning. I looked out the corner of my eye to see Sakura still asleep. Naruto and Sasuke were still fast asleep as well, but I could tell that Sasuke wasn't resting peacefully. Sometimes he would start breathing hard but other times he would be sleeping quietly.

"Well, at least they are doing okay for the time being." I thought.

I swiped my eyes, sleep was trying to take its toll on me. But I knew I had to stay awake. As I sat there, I heard a little shifting noise. I turned my head back around to see Sakura stirring in her sleep. Before long, she finally woke up. She stretched her arms as she released a small yawn. At least she got some rest. Now we both can be on guard.

"Hey. How are you, Kazumi? Are you doing okay?" Sakura asks.

"Yeah, I'm fine. But we need to be cautious." I told her. "I haven't picked up anything yet, but that doesn't mean that we're not in danger."

"Okay, got it. So, how are Naruto and Sasuke?" She asked.

"They're both sleeping all right. I already rinsed their towels with fresh water." I explained.

"Okay, well maybe you should get some rest now. You've been up all night, so now it's my turn to keep a lookout for any enemies or wild animals." She said.

"Heh, the only sleeping you'll be doing will be a permanent one."

Sakura and I both heard the voice and quickly turned around. Standing across the field were three Sound ninjas. Sakura and I quickly got to our feet and pulled out a kunai knife. We both stood ready just in case they wanted to try something. Just before anyone could move, someone else appears out of nowhere. It was none other than Rock Lee.

"Lee?" Sakura said.

"Where did he come from?" I thought.

"I came here to protect you Kazumi." Lee said.

"Hmm, I see." I replied, shaking my head. But this was no time to argue. "Sakura, stay back and watch over Sasuke and Naruto. Lee and I will keep these freaks away." I told her as I moved forward and stood beside Lee.

"Uh, hmm right." she responded.
