Kakashi glanced at his sister as she watched the woman lying on the bed. She stirred and rolled over, lifting the covers over her face.
“We should leave her.” He told his sister.
Kaze looked up at him slowly. She shook her head.
“Why not?” He asked.
“She’s precious to you, I don’t want to let anything more happen to her. Especially as you’re not capable enough to make sure nothing happens.” She replied.
“We weren’t going out. Never have been. It was a cover-”
“We all know that’s not true.” Tsunade interrupted.
“Lady Hokage. What are you doing here?” Kakashi asked.
“I came to see if she’s ok. We also need to talk about what happens after this.”
“Why would we need to discuss after this?” He asked.
“Why wouldn’t we need to discuss it? She’s The Machine.”
“What?” Kakashi said. “She can’t be The Machine! There is no way.”
“It’s true.” Georgia told them.
She sat up and smiled slightly at them.
“What’s The Machine?” Kaze asked.
“Five years ago there was a…accident. In order to save the person involved the closest friend did some…upgrades on them. They turned them into a half robot half human.” Georgia replied.
“So you’re not human?” Kakashi asked.
“No Kakashi she’s not. Idiot.” Kaze muttered.
Kakashi looked at her for a moment before smiling.
“You smile like a goof.” She looked around for a moment. “Where’s Naruto?”
Kakashi looked at her appalled, Kaze narrowing her eyes at him and hitting him around the back of the head.
“What was that for?!” He shouted at her.
“You were being an idiot and not answering her.” She smiled.
Georgia laughed. She stood up and went over to stand with the siblings.
“So where is Naruto?” She asked again.
The siblings glanced between each other uncomfortably.
“Lady Tsunade should-where’s she gone?”
“She left while Kaze here was hitting you over the head.” Georgia informed them. “So Naruto?”
“Left where?!” Georgia shouted.
“I was getting to that.” Kakashi said. “I don’t think you’ll remember this, but, you asked him to not let them hurt your friend. At least that’s the gist we got.”
“Well did no one try to stop him?!”
“Lady Tsunade tried and failed…”
“How did she fail?!”
“He snuck out.” Kaze shrugged. “He placed one of his clones in his room so that it looked like he was still asleep.”
“Huh…sounds like him.” She paused. “I’m going to have to go after him-”
“You can’t!” They both shouted at her. “If you get hurt I’m going to kill you!”
Georgia took a step back and stared at them horrified. They all fell silent for a moment before each of them started shouting at the other. A pair of footsteps stopping outside the door. The person waited a few minutes before stepping inside. They picked up a vase throwing it at the group. They all jumped back in shock as they turned slowly and cautiously towards the door. Tsunade stood there with her arms crossed and an enraged expression on her face.
“If you don’t shut up, I’m going to kill all of you!” She shouted.
Tsunade reached for another ornament. She glanced at their expressions before bursting out laughing.
“Did you really think I’d kill you?”
They all nodded quickly.
“Oh well. Now Georgia we’re sending you in with a specialist group.”
“No way! I have to do this on my own!” Georgia protested.
“No and besides…I think you’ll like this group.”
Georgia sighed and followed Tsunade through the room to a hall like room.
“We moved again after you went out like a light. Anyway your group will now consist of Kakashi, Kaze and Naruto.”
“Naruto?” Georgia said.
A second later Naruto, Kakashi and Kaze appeared in front of them. Naruto smiled at Tsunade before disappearing again.
“That little-! I’m going to kill him when I get my hands on him!” She shouted realising what had happened. “Get going now.”
Georgia, Kakashi and Kaze nodded.
“So does anyone have any ideas where they would be?”
“I do.” Georgia told them. “Follow me, if my thinking is right, then they’ll be at the place where they first installed all of this.”
Kakashi and Kaze nodded the three of them following her into the forest as they jumped from tree to tree. Georgia smiled as the building started to come into sight. It was a big grey building that had been covered by vines.
“There’s no way that she’d be able to get into there.”
“Why not?” Georgia asked.
“The Anbu black ops patrol this area-”
“Well they won’t be any more trust me I know her well enough. The Anbu black ops are possibly dead by now.”
“That’s impossible.” Kaze commented.
“No Kaze, from what we’ve seen there is a possibility that they could kill them off.” Kakashi replied.
“Exactly.” Georgia agreed. “Hey isn’t that Naruto?”
The three of them stopping on the tree and jumping down behind the blonde boy.
“So you left on your own?!” She said to him in a threatening tone.
Naruto turned slowly to face her.
“I…I was helping you…”
Georgia smirked at him.
Naruto nodded and then pointed at the entrance to the building.
“I tried getting in to the building but there were some weird guys that popped up from under the ground.”
“Oh they came up from under the ground?” Georgia asked. “They usually phase out of rocks…”
“No way Sensei! They definitely came out of the ground.”
“Cool well I’ll be back in minute ok?”
Everyone stared at her on surprise. She looked back at them and shrugged.
“I’ve dealt with them before.” She smiled.
Georgia stood up and walked towards the entrance nonchalantly. Her eyes flashed illuminous blue, the environment around her changing slightly. She took a few steps more forwards before standing still.
She jumped up in the air, crashing down into the ground parts of it flying back up to the air. She smiled in satisfaction as the two figures flew up with the rocks.
“Hi Drake!” Georgia waved at them as they stared at her. “Tim!”
They landed on the ground and watched her.
“So you came back?” One of them asked her.
“To a degree…yes.” She replied. “Really I’m just here to talk to her. Can I get in?”
“Can you defeat us?”
“Yes you can get past.” They told her.
“Thanks boys. Oh wait a minute I have some friends.”
Georgia smiled and pointed behind her as the three ninja appeared. They all gave them a small wave.
“They can’t come in.” They stated.
“I thought so…” She smiled.
Georgia turned to them.
“Have fun guys!” She shouted.
They stared at her annoyed as she ran off leaving them with the two men. Kaze and Naruto glanced at Kakashi as he watched her. The two men laughed, one of them hitting Kakashi. Kaze narrowed her eyes at them and cracked the knuckles of one of her hands.
“I’m looking forward to this.” She said.
