The news that the elders have retired has already been spread throughout the entire village. Everyone thinks that it was their idea and know that they've signed the papers there is nothing they could do about it.
I'm in my office together with Shikaku. He and my clones are working hard.
The office door got smacked open.
"YOU BASTARD!" screamed Homura
"YOU BASTARD TRICKED US!" screamed Koharu
"What do you two think you're doing. What gave you the guts to storm in my office and curse at me."
"You dare act like you're innocent! You tricked us into signing those retirement forms. You told us that there was a vote, but that was a total lie." said Homura
"And you, Shikaku. Aren't you ashamed of yourself? How dare you help him trick us!" said Koharu
He looked confused.
"Don't involve him. The Shikaku who you saw yesterday was my clone."
"You bastard! Why did you trick us?"
I snapped my fingers and 5 Anbu encircled them.
"Wait, sir. You can't do that."
"Don't interfere Shikaku."
I looked at them.
"You two have guts to come into my office and talk to me like that. You two have no power left in this village. And don't act like you don't know why I'm doing this."
"How should we know. We have always stayed loyal to the village." said Koharu
"Oh, so you two conveniently forgot helping Danzo. You two have helped him a lot of time with his dirty work. The most recent example is helping him provide information to Suna and Orochimaru."
Their faces turned pale.
"Don't accuse us like that. Do you have any evidence?" asked Homura
"Of course I have evidence. I have enough to justify killing you right here right now. You two go and take them to I&T. Tell Ibiki to extract every piece of information he can get and tell him that everything he learns are S-class secrets."
"Also tell him to report to me immediately after he is done."
"You can't do this to us! We are innocent!" screamed Koharu
The two anbu knocked them out and disappeared. The remaining 3 Anbu went back into the shadows.
"Do you mind telling me what is going on."
I activated a silence seal.
I threw Shikaku a bundle of doc.u.ments. He started reading them. After he read a couple of pages, he slammed the doc.u.ments on his desk.
"Those bastards! How can they do something so immoral! How many people did they sacrifice just to cover up for Danzo's dirty work?"
"Too many to count."
"What will you do with them?"
"I'll make them pay for everything they did and take away everything they build up over the years."
"And what about Danzo?"
"Oh, he will die soon enough."
"You should be careful. Danzo isn't someone you can underestimate. He has many tricks up his sleeves."
"Don't worry, I have two perfect candidates who will easily take him down."
"Are you talking about Jiraiya and Kakashi?"
"Nah, these two aren't officially part of the village. But I'll tell you when everything is over."
[6 days later]
I'm in the hidden base with Haku. I'm looking at my mask.
'Who would have guessed that I would one day wear this mask again.'
"What are you spacing out for. We are going to be late if we don't go right now."
We put our masks on and ran out of the base. We are running through the forest.
"I'm counting on you Haku."
"I will do my best."
We split up from each other. I arrived at a group of 20 Anbu's.
"Is everyone ready?"
We started running towards the Root hideout. Naruto told us that Danzo will be expecting us so we need to be careful.
We arrived near the base.
The door is wide open.
'This is obviously a trap but we have our backup so we should be able to beat the trap.'
"You guys know the plan, just make sure not to kill anyone."
We started moving through the base. There were no Boobytraps or any guards. So we were easily able to move to the main hall. We are standing in front of a big door.
'Let's see what he has prepared for us.'
"Stay alert. There may be a trap behind this door."
One of the Anbu kicked the door open. The hall looked empty. We slowly moved inside. When we arrived in the middle the door behind us shut close and we got encircled by Root Shinobi.
"So you did join him."
Danzo came from behind his shinobi.
"Did you come here to kill me?"
'There are 30 Root Shinobi here. It seems like he called all his men back. This will only make it easier for us.'
"Just give up. You have no chance of winning."
"Even if you could kill me all the men with you will die."
Suddenly the room turned ice cold.
"Are you sure about that?" I asked
Half of his men got turned into ice popsicles. 30 Anbu's appeared behind Danzo with Haku in front.
"Who are you? Why is there an ice user in Konoha? Aren't you all supposed to be dead?"
"Why is a dead man asking so many questions? Do you understand why, Itachi?"
"No, I have no clue."
"Don't be so arrogant!"
I looked around.
'If we fight with them here, there will be a lot of casualties. Even if they are strong, Danzo will sacrifice anyone to stay alive.'
"All of you, capture everyone from the Root and leave this place immediately."
After 5 minutes everyone was captured. They got two seals put on them. One was a paralyze seal and the other one was a special seal that Naruto made for today.
"Why are you standing there without moving. We have captured all your men bud you didn't even flinch."
"They are useless to me now and it isn't like you'll be able to get anything from."
"Are you sure about that?" Haku asked
"What do you mean by that?"
"I can't tell you, sorry. But maybe I'll tell you if you're able to defeat me."
A bunch of Ice needles came flying at Danzo.
Danzo sent a big ball of compressed air at Haku's needles, destroying all of them.
I sent a fireball flying at Danzo. He managed to jump out of the way but Haku quickly made his move.
A dome of Ice appeared around Danzo. Haku appeared in every mirror and started throwing Senbon at Danzo.
"You may be fast, but you aren't fast enough."
Danzo managed to easily dodge and deflect the Senbon.
I appeared under his right arm and cut it off with a Tanto. I quickly threw it to Haku.
He punched me.
He got sent flying out of the dome and crashed into the wall.
"Urgh to think you had a clone change into a Senbon."
He stood up and I could see a red eye.
'This bastard dares to use Shisui's eye!'
"Haku, stay out of this."
"Let's see how well you can use his eye."
I activated my Mangeky Sharingan.
I pulled him into my Tsukuyomi world and started torturing him for days. After 2 seconds passed in the real world, he fell down on his knees panting. Before he could make a move I had already pulled out Shisui's eye.
"What will you do now?"
"Argh, give me back my eye!"
"Your eye? Do you want to die so badly?"
A yellow skeleton figure appeared around me. I pinned him down with my Susanoo.
"Haku do it."
Danzo got frozen in a ball of Ice. I stopped my Susanoo and put a seal on the ball making him unable to break out.
"Good work. Have you sealed away that arm?"
"Yes, but I wonder what's so special about it. Master told us that we needed to cut it off first before we do anything so it must be special."
"Who knows, but let's inform Naruto that we have completed the mission."
"There is no need."
Naruto walked out from behind a pillar.
"How long have you been here sir?"
"Before you two arrived. I must say I'm happy with how you two executed the mission."
"Thank you, sir. But I must ask why did we need to capture him. You promised me that I could kill him."
"I thought you didn't like killing?"
"As long as he stays alive the village will be in danger."
"Always thinking about the village first. I will use him to make you able to walk on the streets of Konoha again."
"I'm fine with being in the shadows."
"How can you be a good big brother if you can't even take Sasuke out to eat his favorite food?"
"I see. Thank you, sir."
