PS: Do they have handcuffs in Naruto world…?


A group of Anbu Black Ops from the Hidden Leaf village surrounded a young girl. She had shoulder-length chocolate brown hair in a messy bob cut and matching eyes. She was meditating under a large birch tree, and looked perfectly calm despite having five armed ninja surrounding her.

“Don’t move!” Yelled one of the men.

The girl looked towards the one who spoke. “What have I done?” she asked. Her voice was high and sing-dong, like bells.


“What did I do to you that made you come after me?” she asked again.

“This isn’t personal.” They closed in so that they were but a meter from her. “We’re here to take you to the Leaf, Hokage’s orders.”

“Okay then.” The girl stood up and brushed herself off. She was wearing a long-sleeved light grey dress with bare feet. She brushed a few strands of hair from her face and nodded.

One of the men shoved her shoulder slightly and she retaliated. She swung her forearm up and a branch from the birch tree wrapped itself around his wrist.

“Don’t touch me.” She said dangerously. Her voice had lost its dreamy state and now sounded mean. The ninja, meanwhile, were now battle-ready, kunai in hand and in fighting stances. Their masks seemed even more frightening than usual. Silence fell and all was still, until the girl lowered her arm and the tree branch returned to its original position.

“What just happened?” One man asked his neighbor.

“I don’t know,” he replied, “but that was freaky.”

Then the girl took a step forward and they all reacted. Two men stood in front, kunai at the ready, while two more grabbed hold of her shoulders and forced her to her knees. The last one clapped shining silver handcuffs onto her wrists. It all happened in one second flat. But the girl lost her calm state and became vicious. The birch tree imitated her and struck out at the ninja. It sent them flying in all directions, giving the girl a chance to scramble to her feet and start running.

She went deeper and deeper into the forest with the ninja all chasing her, throwing kunai and shuriken every other second. She managed to dodge most of them, albeit gaining scratches and cuts on her arms and legs.

But one shuriken caught on the skirt of her dress and she was pulled to the ground. She landed hard on her right shoulder – her hands still cuffed behind her back – and cried out in pain. The tree nearest to her stretched out a branch and hooked it under her arm, helping her up. She continued running.

The ninja were still chasing her. And one ninja shouted “Fire style! Fireball jutsu!” and a fireball hit her square in the back and sent her sprawling.

Her breath left her and she tried to scramble away. Her eyes were wide with dear as she looked at the burning grass near her. She sat up against a tree and squeezed her eyes shut.

The fire-style ninja grabbed her by the arm and hauled her to her feet. But she was dead weight.

“What a pain.” He muttered. “Here, Tenzo, carry her.”

“What?” the ninja called Tenzo cried. “Why me?”

“Because I’m the leader and I said so.”

So Tenzo walked over and took the girl. He slung her over his shoulder and the group disappeared.


A/N: I just realised how much I love ending thing with “and then she/he/they disappeared.” It makes good suspense. I think.

So that’s the first chapter for you all, please be sure to read the other books in the series, aaaaaaaaaaaand… that’s it, I think.

Luv you all! Peace out!
