"What is it?"
"We have spotted Itachi Uchiha and Kisame in the village. Both are S-class criminals and part of the Akatsuki."
'He must have come here to warn us.'
"Did anything happen?"
"Yes sir. Kakashi Hatake, Asuma Sarutobi and Kurenai Yuhi engaged with the two of them."
"Did the two of them escape?"
"No sir. The Hokage and two of his anbu joined them. The Hokage and Itachi were talking while the rest was fighting Kisame."
"What were they talking about."
"I'm sorry sir but the Hokage put a silencing barrier around them."
'Curse that kid, what did he and Itachi talk about?'
"How did it end?"
"Kisame got imprisoned and Itachi Uchiha has gone with the Hokage into the forest but their current location is unknown."
'This bastard! Don't tell me he has pulled Itachi to his side.'
"Take as many Root Shinobi's as you need and go search the entire village. Don't think about coming back before they are both found!"
'This is bad. If Itachi tells Naruto everything about me, I will have no choice but to leave the village and come back when I'm stronger. Naruto isn't like Hiruzen. He will not take pity on me especially not when he finds out that I leaked the secret of him being the Jinchuuriki. He will send everyone after me and I'm not strong enough to take on the entire village.'
A root agent appeared in front of me.
"Danzo sir. The two elders and the 3rd Hokage have requested your presence. They said it was an emergency."
"Where are they?"
"They are in the Elders office."
He nodded and disappeared.
'let's see what they have to say about this.'
I arrived at their office. After entering I could see that the 3 of them are in deep thought.
"You're finally here. You must already know what this is about so sit down." Hiruzen said
He activated a silence seal and I sat down.
"So Hiruzen, what have you told Naruto."
"What do you mean?"
"Don't play dumb. He must have known everything about Itachi and used that to make a deal with him or why else would Itachi go with him so willingly."
"I have never even spoken out Itachi's name in front of him."
"It doesn't matter if he knows or not. The only thing that matters is what deal he has made with him." Said Homura
"He is right. Itachi was our only way to find out about what was happening in the Akatsuki. Now that Kisame has been imprisoned inside this village there is no way they would trust Itachi." Said Koharu
(AN: Homura Mitokado is the male elder and Koharu Utatane is the female elder.)
"If you made me Hokage this would have never happened."
"There was no way we could have predicted he would do this. But if he really knows everything about Itachi he must have a reason for doing this."
"Don't be a fool he must be trying to get more power to get rid of us."
"I told our secretary not to disturb us so this must be important." Said Homura
Hiruzen stopped the silence seal.
A woman came in. She is the two elders secretary.
"I'm sorry to disturb you, but the Hokage told me to deliver this envelope."
She gave it to Homura. He opened it and took out two papers that looked like forms. After reading it he slammed the table.
"What is it?" asked Koharu
"These are retirement forms. The Hokage wants us to retire."
"What he dares! He can't make that the decision on his own."
"Honorable Elders, the Hokage didn't make this decision on his own. He got the support of all the clan leaders, the entire villager's council, and the majority of the Jonins."
"What! When did he do that?" Koharu almost got a heart attack
"I won't stand for this. Let's go and see what that brat is thinking. Hiruzen come with us maybe you could talk some sense into him." said Homura
"I was going anyway."
"I'm coming to."
We arrived at his office. Hiruzen knocked on the door.
"It's me Naruto. I'm here with the elders and Danzo."
"I'm sorry but I'm really busy right now. Could you guys wait outside for a bit."
"Who does he think he is!"
"Don't get angry. He must be really busy to make us wait outside. Let's just sit down and wait."
We all sat down outside the Hokages office.
[1 hour later]
"What is taking him so long. Did he forget about us or something?"
"He wouldn't forget about us. Let's just wait a little more."
[5 hours later]
"THIS BASTARD! I WILL KILL HIM TODAY!" Homura screamed
He stormed inside the office and we followed him in. What we saw shocked us all. He is sitting on his chair with his feet on the desk and a book in his hands.
"Oh, you guys are still here? Sorry, I forgot about you guys."
'I have decided. He will die!'
"You bastard! You dare make us wait outside and forget about us."
Suddenly the room turned cold.
"Watch your mouth! I'm not someone you can talk to like that."
"Naruto please calm down. He is just stressed. He didn't mean to talk to you like that."
The room got back to its normal temperature.
"So what did you guys come here for."
Homura took a deep breath.
"We came here to ask about the forms you send us. Why did you send them to us? You even had people vote without informing us."
"Oh, that. I just thought you two deserved to retire. You two are getting old so I thought you would like to take rest and go on a vacation or something. A lot of people seem to agree with me."
"But who told you we wanted to retire? We don't need to retire." Said Koharu
"Well, that's too bad. You two will sit down and fill in the forms. It has already been decided. If you don't resign now you will be seen as enemies of Konoha."
'I knew he would try to get rid of us. He has become a great treat. I need to go back and think of a plan.'
I walked towards the door and opened it.
"Where are you going?" Asked Hiruzen
"I'm going home."
I closed the door and started walking home.
Danzo just left.
'He must be extremely wary of me. Well, I don't blame him.'
I looked at the two elders.
"What are you waiting for? Fill the forms."
"How do we know if there really was a vote?"
"Do you really think I would lie."
I called my secretary.
"Go and tell Shikaku to come here."
2 minutes later we heard a knock.
"How can I be of help, sir."
"They don't believe that we took a vote."
He looked at the elders and the Third Hokage.
"I have personly organized the vote. The Hokage didn't interfere with anything. 98% of the participants have voted for your retirement."
Both of them fell down on the couch.
"This can't be, why would so many people vote for their retirement?" wondered Hiruzen
I had a small smirk.
"But how can you have held a vote in one day?" asked Koharu
"I started a week ago since I already had the power of a Hokage."
"What do you think we should do, Homura?"
"We have no other choice."
He took a pen and started filling in the form.
"What are you doing! We can't just give up so easily."
"The only reason we have this position is because we get supported by the people, now that our support is gone we have no choice but to resign. If we don't resign now we will be seen as criminals."
Koharu looked at the form for a couple of seconds before she also started filling it in.
After they finished filling them in they gave them to me.
"Good, I expect you two to have left your office by tomorrow."
They were visibly angry, but there is nothing they could do to me.
They left my office without saying anything.
"What are you planning, Naruto?"
"I don't know what you're talking about."
He looked at me for a couple of seconds before he started walking towards the door.
"I will take my leave now."
"See ya later.'
He left the room.
Shikaku transformed into me or should I say my clone transformed back.
'Haha, those idiots. They trusted Shikaku so easily. I didn't even hold a vote to begin with. I really want to see what their faces would be like when they find out.'
My clone disappeared and this time I called my real secretary since the other one was also my clone. And the elder's secretary was also my clone.
"What can I do for you, sir."
"Announce to the village that the two elders have officially retired."
She looked shocked but quickly got her composure back.
She left the room.
I walked up to the window and looked at the village.
'Just a little longer and everything will be mine.'
