In an Instant, the news reached Sarutobi, the entire village was alarmed, even though it was already dark, he commanded a large number of s.h.i.+n.o.bis to find her.
In the middle of the jungle.
Two figures flashed.
Uzumaki Mei stopped for a moment, then she printed a hand seal and closed her eyes.
After a breath, she opened her eyes and showed a hint of joy.
“Great, I can feel her Chakra, we're getting close.”
The person standing next to her was Minato, his eyes flashed then he said: “No, I will catch to her quickly, when we get closer you will go back and inform everyone, then you will leave the place.”
“But… Wouldn't it be better if I came along?!”
“Don't worry, I will be fine.”
Minato smiled at her wich made Mei's heart inexplicably warm, then she nodded at him gently.
Later, the two of them went in the direction where Mei sensed Kus.h.i.+na's Chakra.
The relation between Kus.h.i.+na and Mei wasn't simply as cousins, it actually was stronger than that, since the two persons were very similar.
They even look alike, sometimes even Naito cannot tell the difference.
However, Kus.h.i.+na was still the Kyuubi's Jinchuriki, this fact didn't change, therefore; the story became somewhat confusing.
Naito has always felt that things are changing, the appearance of Uzumaki Mei itself is suspicious, no matter how he thought about it, he never found an answer, so he just let it go.
Because Madra wouldn't be able to pull out something like this.
“Just like the original, she's using her hairs as a trace…”
Naito stopped in front of a treetop and picked another hair.
Although Kus.h.i.+na's hair is bright red, is such a forest, it cannot be simply found!
However, with Naito's Ultra Perceive, although he cannot perceive the color, he can sense every single one of them.
Using this, Naito could easily track Kus.h.i.+na.
Although, the speed of the Cloud Squad was very fast and picking up her trace slowed him down, yet Naito wasn't that far away from them!
This proves how fast Naito is!
In the forest.
More than a dozen Cloud s.h.i.+n.o.bis were rus.h.i.+ng fast through the forest, and their bodies were covered by a lightning aura.
One of them was holding a little girl tied by a rope in his hand.
Kus.h.i.+na's hands were tied on her back, and she could barely reach her hair, she kept leaving her hair as a trace throwing it in the forest when they weren't looking.
However, even she didn't believe that anyone could notice it.
It's too difficult to see her hair in this dark forest.
“Were already far away from Konoha, with this kind of distance… Even her cousin Mei wouldn't be able to sense her Chakra…”
As the Cloud s.h.i.+n.o.bis went further and further in the forest, Kus.h.i.+na was getting more and more afraid that no would come to rescue her.
But she never gave up, she kept leaving her hair as a trace hoping that someone will notice.
“With this kind of speed, even if someone finds the traces, am afraid, they will still be able to reach the clouds before anyone can rescue me…”
Kus.h.i.+na couldn't speak, her mouth was sealed, and the steal was locking her Chakra.
Of course, if she could move her hand, she could easily cancel the seal.
However, she was working a little by little on weakening that Seal.
But the problem wasn't the Seal itself, even if she gets free of the seal, she wouldn't be able to escape from these s.h.i.+n.o.bis, they were much faster than her.
Speed was their specialty.
Their leader was a Jonin who had an excellent reputation.
“Naito should return to home by now, he will find out that am not there… but even if he noticed that, its too late for him to catch up, even if he can find the traces.”
Kus.h.i.+an was whispering these words, but she didn't give up, she kept trying to weaken the seal and leave traces behind.
Finally, she managed to crack the seal, she immediately broke the rope and tried to escape.
However, in no time, the Clouds s.h.i.+nbois reacted so fast and surrounded her again.
The Clouds s.h.i.+n.o.bis were way faster than her.
“She cracked the seal.”
“Just how strong are those Uzumaki members?”
“Let just knock her out and carry her back to the village, it doesn't matter what happens to her as long as the Kyuubi is fine.”
Suddenly, the look on their faces changed and became very cold.
Kus.h.i.+na stood in the middle trying to protect her self, while she was very confused about how the Clouds s.h.i.+nbois know her ident.i.ty.
How did they know about the Kyuubi thing, even the people in Konoha didn't know about it.
This is simply unbelievable
“We need to act fast, we don't want Konoha s.h.i.+n.o.bis to catch up to us.”
The Squad leader looked at the others and gave the order.
The other ninjas nodded, and they were ready to attack.
Kus.h.i.+na took a defensive stance, ready to block their attacks.
Kus.h.i.+na doesn't rely on the Kyuubi's strength, but she was still a Chunin, with her power she could barely avoid their attacks.
But the expression on the Cloud s.h.i.+n.o.bis was very calm, they weren't worried.
With their speed, even one of them was enough!
Just as Kus.h.i.+na jumped in the air trying to reach a treetop to escape, one of them flashed toward her, while his body was covered by a lightning aura.
Kus.h.i.+na was still in midair, and she didn't have any chance to avoid his attack, and the guy's speed was too fast compared to her's.
She simply couldn't react, for the first time, Kus.h.i.+na felt despair, and finally gave up.
If they caught her again, they will knock her out, and she wouldn't even leave traces anymore, no one will be able to find her.
Just when she thought that this was the end, suddenly, something flashed right in front of her!
