"And this is where the second part of your exams will take place," Anko smirked, "Battle Training Ground 44, AKA, the Forest of Death. You should be scared, and you'll find out soon enough."
"You should be scared," Naruto mocked, "YEAH RIGHT! DO YOUR WORST, I'M NOT SCARED OF ANYTHING!"
Sakura sighed and ran a hand through her blush pink hair. Looking right, she spotted a woman with long, black hair and an abnormally LONG tongue. She gripped her bandaged wrist as a white, hot pain surged from her head to her toes. Sasuke looked at her strangely before returning to his emo-ish self.
'IT'S HIM! OH MAN IT'S HIM! HE'S HERE!'
'And I have this urge to hug him...'
'You. Are. Sick.'
"Before we begin this test, I have something to hand out to you all." the proctor said as she reached in her trench coat and pulled out a stack of papers, "Just a consent form. Before the test, all of you have to read over this form and then sign it. If you sign it and you don't come back out of the Forest of Death, it won't be my responsibility!"
She laughed, and whispers of this woman's craziness expanded throughout the genin.
"Now, let me explain what you'll be doing in this test. This test will see how great your survival skills are. First, I'll give you all a description of the terrain. The 44th training ground has 44 entrances. There is a river and a forest inside. In the center is a locked tower located 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). This test consists of an anything goes battle.
You need to get your hands on two scrolls.You'll be fighting to get both a heaven scroll and a earth scroll. All together, there are 26 teams which means that half of you will be going after the earth scroll, and the other half of you will be going after the heaven scroll. I'll be handing one kind of scroll to each team.
And that's what you'll be vying for. To pass the test, your entire squad must bring both scrolls to the tower. Oh, and one more thing, the test has a time limit. You must finish in five days. Now the ways to get disqualified...
1- ALL members of your team must make it to the tower with BOTH scrolls.
2- If a team loses a member, or if a member becomes incapacitated.
3- And none of you, absolutely NONE of you can open the scrolls until you've reached the tower!" Anko explained.
"But what happens if the scroll accidently flaps open and we read it?" questioned Naruto.
"Well, look at it this way. You. Don't. Want. To. Know."
The crowd of genin slowly broke apart. As Sakura read the paper and walked away, she looked at the black haired woman from before, who was looking at her with the same look Kabuto gave her. Tch. It was him.
"Well look who it is. The future failure. What's up billboard brow? I though you'd be washed out of the program by now. Your big forehead alone should've gotten you tossed." Ino scoffed.
"Jealous I'm spending time with Sasuke-kun, huh? It's turning you petty and ugly, but you already have the ugly part down." the pinkette smiled.
"I don't get jealous!" the blonde shrieked.
"Whatever floats your boat, pig. Well I've gotta go now, I don't have time for you."
"WAIT! Back in the first part of your exams... what was that blood bath in your memories?!"
Sakura looked at her rival and let out a soft laugh.
"Something that I shouldn't say."
She walked away to join her teammates, and Team 7 walked to entrance 12.
"ALRIGHT! Head's up you maggots! The second part of the exams has begun!"
