Kakashi learns of Sasuke’s defection. He flees Konoha and instructs his ninja dogs to find Naruto and Sasuke, hoping to get to them before they kill each other. Meanwhile, Sasuke pierces Naruto’s shoulder with his Chidori. Missing his heart, Sasuke begins choking Naruto to kill him and get the Mangekyo Sharingan. The Nine-Tailed Chakra begins to seep out before he can do so, forcing Sasuke to free Naruto and healing Naruto’s injury. Naruto threatens to break every bone in Sasuke’s body to keep him safe from Orochimaru.
