Akatsuki School Special: Tobi's Field Trip
The next day, Tobi and friends went to school; they sat down at their seats and saw a written announcement on their desks. Tobi was new, so he didn’t know what they were. He look...

Everyone was rowdy at Itachi’s lunch table, but at Deidara and Tobi’s table, it was rather quiet. Sasori said nothing when he had sat down and pushed away Deidara and Tobi when they offered to sit beside him. Zetsu, Deidara, and Tobi were told to sit on the other side of the lunch table away from him, or he would make them into his newest puppets.
Tobi and Deidara didn’t understand why Sasori acted so differently today. Zetsu knew well to back off and leave Sasori alone. Once Sasori left to dump his lunch tray, Tobi and Deidara started up a conversation. “Why is Sasori acting differently, Sempai?”
“How should I know? I don’t live with Sasori-no-Danna. I just met him when first grade started, un,” Deidara responded.
“I know what’s wrong with Sasori,” Zetsu’s white half said.
The two turned to Zetsu. “How do you know?” Deidara asked.
“All of us apprentice Akatsuki members besides you and Tobi know why Sasori is acting this way.” Zetsu’s black half cackled as if Deidara was an idiot and oblivious to what was going on.
“So why is Sasori acting differently, Zetsu-san?” Tobi asked.
“It would be better if I tell you the whole story at recess,” Zetsu told the masked boy.
Sasori returned to the table, saying nothing, and laid his head on the table, covering his face with his arms and hands. “Why? Why’d you deceive and betray me my old friend?” Sasori said to himself so quietly no one heard him.
At recess, Zetsu gathered Tobi and Deidara and went up to the large, shaded tree beside the basketball court. Itachi and Kisame were playing against each other and it was clear Kisame was winning, but Itachi was blind to see that. Zetsu sat on one of the tree’s roots and Tobi and Deidara sat on the dry grass. “Okay I’ll tell you the story,” Zetsu explained.

“Sasori, check it out!”
“What is it?”
“What do you mean, ‘What is it?’ It’s my pet snake.”
“Oh, I’ve never seen a snake before!”
Sasori was in kindergarten playing with his best friend from preschool. Today was show and tell. Kakuzu brought his newest safe that would obliterate anything or anyone, other than him, that tried to open the safe. Itachi brought Kisame, which really wasn’t a show and tell object of choice. Hidan was at home, due to the fact he had the chicken pox. Sasori wanted to be last because he thought his new puppet wasn’t that good. “All right, Orochimaru, it’s your turn for show and tell,” Konan called.
~ ~ ~
“Wait, un!” Deidara interrupted.
“WHAT?!” Zetsu’s black self snapped.
“Who’s this Orochimaru?”
Sasori sat on the swing and thought about his long-gone-away friend Orochimaru.
~ ~ ~
“This is my snake, Manda,” Orochimaru told the class.
The class was hypnotized by the large purple snake around Orochimaru’s neck and right arm. “He’s 5 yrs old and my first pet,” Orochimaru said staring at Itachi, who wasn’t paying any attention.
“Thank you for introducing us to your snake, Orochimaru,” Konan said, “Now, Sasori, it’s your turn.”
Orochimaru sat down and told his friend “Good luck.”
~ ~ ~
“So, Orochimaru was a fellow Akatsuki apprentice and Danna’s best friend, un?” Deidara questioned.
“Yes, was,” Zetsu said.
“Where’s Orochi-san now?” Tobi wondered, asking Zetsu.
“No one knows. He tried to take Itachi, but Itachi chopped off one of his hands and Orochimaru fled afterwards.”
~ ~ ~
“Man, Orochi, I did awful at show and tell today! I suck!” Sasori whined.
“Don’t say that!” Orochimaru said getting into his friends face, “Your puppets are good. All you need it to get your confidence up.”
Sasori nodded. Orochimaru then looked at Itachi and Kisame as they played basketball. “Hmm? Whatcha lookin at Orochimaru?” Sasori said suddenly as he noticed Orochimaru turn away.
“Oh, it’s nothing,” Orochimaru said turning to his friend, with his expression softened, “If it’s okay, I’m going to go and play basketball.”
Orochimaru walked off to the basketball court, but unknowingly to him, Sasori was closely following behind him.
Orochimaru arrived and had an evil look on his face. “Itachi, can you come over here for a second?” he asked.
Itachi made no move and he signaled Kisame to draw his sword. Itachi summoned up his Mangekyo Sharingan and used his Tsukyomi. Orochimaru and Sasori both looked into Itachi’s eyes and were dragged into his genjutsu. “What are you doing Itachi?” Sasori said looking at both him and Orochimaru.
“Orochimaru has deceived you Sasori, he deceived us all,” Itachi said drawing his katana.
“No! You’re lying! Orochimaru would never deceive me! He’s not even trying to do anything to you!” the six year old cried.
“Then why does he have his snake and katana behind his back?”
Sasori was dumbfounded and looked behind his friend’s back. “No! It’s not true! Impossible!” Sasori said staring at the drawn katana and Manda on his friend’s arm.
“Sasori, you were easy to deceive!” Orochimaru declared.
Sasori looked at his friend’s face, but where the kind soft expression he was used to was not there. “You are a gullible brat! I was able to manipulate you like clay. I pretended to be your friend to gain your trust and get close to Itachi, and then I was going to kidnap him and leave you alone,” Orochimaru said coldly.
Sasori was in disbelief. The only friend he knew was a mere illusion? No, it couldn’t be! Tears started to roll down Sasori’s face. Itachi couldn’t take looking at the sad Sasori, who was filled with so much pain. “Shut up!” Itachi shouted.
He released his Tsukyomi and charged at Orochimaru trying to stab him in the heart. Orochimaru dodged, yet sustained damage because Itachi chopped off one of his hands. Orochimaru screamed with pain and disappeared without any trace of him left.
~ ~ ~
Zetsu said no more and Deidara and Tobi also fell silent.
Sasori, who was sitting on the swing, had tears streaming down his face. “Orochimaru, you worthless, betraying, brat! I will kill you if I risk my life!”
Sasori sat back down in his seat and tried to wipe away the tears he hadn’t had in a year, but it seemed useless. “Deidara, you brat, you were the first true friend I have ever had. Although you believe art is a bang and I disagree, we can both agree on this fact:
True friendship does last forever, even when separated”
Konan then blew the second whistle, signaling the time to throw. Tobi handed one of the two dodge balls to Deidara. Zetsu stayed in the back with Sasori watching in wonder if they were going to win with this new team player. Sasori sat on the ground working with his new puppet creation wondering where he should put the defense mechanisms and poisons.
Deidara crafted a clay owl and brought it to life in hopes of getting more of a better attack range. As he was about to hand the dodge ball to the clay owl, he heard Hidan taunting him from the other side. “Hey, Deidara!” Hidan taunted, “The only reason you’re handing that ball to that owl of yours is because you throw like a girl!”
Deidara was furious at Hidan. He wanted to use his jutsu to make him explode right there and now, but he knew for sure he’d be banished to the principal’s office, so he calmed down…... And threw the dodge ball at Hidan’s face!
The dodge ball slammed against Hidan so hard that it made him fall onto the gym floor. Kakuzu was stunned. Deidara had never done that before! Even Itachi and Kisame were shocked. “Oh My God! THAT F**KING HURTS!” Hidan screamed.
All eyes fell on Deidara who had anger filled in his eyes instead of kindness towards the opposing team.
Hidan sat on the sidelines, cursing that he was the first one out. Itachi became worried about Deidara’s anger and consulted his last two members of the dodge ball team. “I’ve never seen Deidara get so angry like that,” Kisame said shocked.
“I know, he is now actually a threat to us other than Tobi,” Itachi explained.
“So, what’s the plan?” Kakuzu said as he stole Kisame’s lunch money.
“Don’t worry, I’ll handle it,” Itachi said calmly.
Itachi explained the plan to both and they agreed to it. Itachi’s team had never lost a dodge ball match and they had no intention to lose now. Kakuzu grabbed the ball that hit Hidan in the face and threw it in the air. “Kisame, now!” Kakuzu signaled.
Kisame grabbed his sword and took a swing at the dodge ball as if it were a baseball and hit it over to the opposing side at Sasori. However, the plan didn’t work so well because it hit Sasori’s finished puppet, now breaking it on contact.
Sasori was quiet for a few minutes, but then his face grew red with anger and he stood up and said, “WHO THREW THAT?!”
Kisame and Itachi stared at him with blank faces and then pointed at Kakuzu and said, “He threw it.”
Sasori grabbed the dodge ball that was just thrown and threw it directly at Kakuzu. Kakuzu desperately hit the floor, groaned, and curled himself into a ball after being hit in a place boys would not like getting hit with something. Kakuzu had to be dragged out of the field by Konan and he lay next to the bloody-nosed Hidan.
“Okay, that plan didn’t work,” Itachi said, “So, you have any ideas Kisa-“
Suddenly Tobi hit Kisame in the stomach, knocking the wind out of him. “me,” Itachi finished.
Kisame steadily walked over to where his other teammates were sitting/laying and sat down clenching his stomach. “Okay, it’s just me then,” Itachi said to himself, “Both dodge balls are over here, so I just need to get the others out. I have no choice…”
Itachi released the mangekyo and used it on Tobi’s team. Deidara and Tobi snapped out of the genjutsu though. Itachi jumped up and threw both dodge balls. One hit Zetsu and the other hit Sasori. “Bulls eye!” Itachi said, “Got them, two more to go!”
Sasori and Zetsu sat on the sidelines as the only ones that were not injured and cheered for Tobi and Deidara to defeat Itachi. Deidara grabbed a dodge ball and chucked it at Itachi. Itachi was too quick though and caught it. “Sorry Tobi,” Deidara said as he sat on the sidelines.
“Itachi you may bring a player back to your team,” Konan said.
“No, I’m doing this by myself… Especially since they would be of no use to me,” Itachi said closing his eyes.
Itachi grabbed the dodge ball tightly in his hands as he and Tobi both approached the center of the gym. They stared intensely into each other’s eyes and threw the dodge ball.
Both Itachi and Tobi were hit, but the force of the dodge balls wasn’t great, so it caused no damage or injury to either one. “Game over, for the first time in Akatsuki School history, there has been a tie in dodge ball!” Konan announced.
All of Tobi’s team ran over to congratulate and thank Tobi for his work. Tobi was surrounded by his team, but he looked at Itachi with question to why he didn’t dodge or catch the ball he threw. Itachi looked away from Tobi’s stare and walked over to the gym’s entrance waiting for the remaining, non-injured classmates, to join him.
Itachi then glanced back at Tobi and his team. “For now, we have tied, but I will not lose to you new kid,” Itachi said to himself as Konan, Tobi, and the others came to the entrance to leave as well.
School went on as usual for the past few days. Hidan, Itachi, Kakuzu, and Kisame would get in trouble and be sent to Pein’s office, Zetsu would visit the counselor twice a day, and Tobi, Sasori, and Deidara were getting As and Bs in most of their classes. “Okay, does everyone know what day it is?” Konan asked.
“Art day?” Sasori, Deidara, and Tobi chimed in.
“No, you bozos!” Hidan yelled, “It’s gym day!”
“Yes, Hidan,” Konan said in an annoyed tone for him yelling at the three, “It is gym day, but because it’s raining outside-“
“Awww!” the first graders whined.
“You didn’t let me finish!” Konan explained, “Because it’s raining outside, we’re going to play dodge ball!”
Everyone in the classroom cheered except Sasori and Deidara. Tobi suddenly stopped cheering and looked at Deidara and Sasori’s worried faces. “What’s wrong guys?” Tobi said clueless to the situation.
“Inside dodge ball is cool, but it’s not cool because it’s always Itachi’s team ganging up on us,” Sasori explained.
Tobi got the idea of the situation and then realized; it was that bad.
The small class entered the gigantic gym. The gym had Akatsuki colors all over they even had banners of the accomplishments in sports and missions they had. “All right, choose your teams everyone!” Konan said excitedly.
As usual, Kisame and Itachi recruited Hidan and Kakuzu while Deidara, Sasori, and Tobi recruited Zetsu. “Sempai,” Tobi said, “Your team will have a change of luck this time. I’m positive!”
“Itachi, they chose that new kid Tobi. I’ve never seen him play dodge ball here, so I’m worried we might not win,” Kisame cautioned.
“Relax shark-boy!” Hidan said, “Deidara’s team is full of weaklings. His team still lost last time we played, so we shouldn’t worry about a weakling like Tobi being added.”
“At any cost, if Tobi is weak or not, we should consider him a threat,” Itachi said.
“We all know the rules!” Konan said, “You may use your ninja techniques, which involves bloodline traits and genjutsu, if you are hit with a dodge ball, you’re out, you may bring your teammates back by catching a dodge ball, if a dodge ball is caught you’re out, and if you defend yourself with weapons or the dodge ball you’re out. Are these rules clear?”
“Yes!” both teams said.
“Alright!” Konan said.
She blew the whistle and both teams went to gather the dodge balls. Itachi’s team arrived first, but when they tried to snatch up the balls, they disappeared. “What?!” Itachi thought.
He looked over and saw Tobi on the other side of the dodge ball field with all the dodge balls in his arms. “This dodge ball game is getting serious!” Itachi said as he used his chakra to summon up his unique bloodline trait the sharingan, “It’s on!”
For Naruto fans, such as myself, I bet some of you are wondering, "How many of the Akatsuki have died?"
So far, I have little info, but I'll do the best I can
*Note: Spoiler alert if you live in the US. But then again you probably don't care, so read it anyway*
Sasori of Red Sand died fighting his grandma Chiyo and Sakura I believe. I think he was the first of the Akatsuki to die. He was the creator of the Crow, a puppet Kankuro often uses. I think it was the 3rd Kazekage he murdered? His former partners were Deidara and Orochimaru. He said he'd kill Orochimaru, yet was unable to after he was killed.
Deidara died fighting Sasuke out of anger towards him, he turned himself into a bomb, killing himself and Manda (Orochimaru's snake). Either he or Hidan were the second of the Akatsuki to die. He joined the Akatsuki (Well, I can't say joined, he was forced) after being defeated by Itachi. One of his eyes has adapted to be used against the sharingan. He tried to kill Sasuke after realizing he killed Orochimaru before he could. His former partners were Sasori and Tobi (for the last time, he's not Obito).
Hidan died fighting Shikamaru. He killed Azuma, which drove Shikamaru to revenge. Shikamaru defeated and buried Hidan in Nara soil. He has a three blade reaper staff. He's a cusser, he often uses foul language when he can. I forget who his partner was...
Itachi died fighting Sasuke. Yes, Sasuke got his rvenge and was able to kill his brother. Itachi sustained multiple counts of Damage fighting Sasuke and the true reason he kept Sasuke alive was revealed. Itachi kept Sasuke alive in hopes he'd gain a Mangekyo too. Itachi was going blind (most of you are probably saying "I knew it!") due to the Mangekyo's effects, so he kept Sasuke alive to steal his eyes for a permanent Mangekyo, however Sasuke killed him. Sasuke is currently in critical condition. Itachi so far is the last of the Akatsuki that has died. Itachi's partner was Kisame.
So far that's my guide. If any new updates come up I may or may not post them because if I have a life that day, I may not. If you have more information tell me and I will update another page and post who helped me.
