Jiraiya was seen peeking at the girls taking a bath on the waterfall. Naruto was practicing the Summoning Technique, with Naruto still can't summon a frog. Sakura was sitting in her bedroom, still worried about Sasuke. The Third Hokage had a meeting with the Jōnins regarding Hayate Gekkō's body found near Kikyō Castle. They seemed to talk about Orochimaru, and the Third Hokage concluded that they don't still have any information regarding to the latter, he also express his trust to the ninjas and they invade Konoha, they will assemble and fight.

Sakura then goes to Yamanaka's Flower Shop to buy flowers for Sasuke. Ino is in charge of the shop, and says that she will accompany Sakura in visiting Sasuke. Ino picks out a rose and Sakura picks a daffodil. Sakura said she will pick two, one for Sasuke and the other for Rock Lee. On their way, they hear Chōji eating in a barbeque restaurant. Inside, Asuma Sarutobi and Shikamaru are also eating with Chōji.

Neji was shown training with Tenten. Neji fell down from exhaustion, having used too much chakra. Team Kurenai was training too, for Shino's match. The Sand Siblings and Baki was talking about their invasion plans. Naruto was still training in his toad Summoning Technique, and Jiraiya was still peeking. The nurse permitted Sakura and Ino five minutes to visit Sasuke because of his condition, but Sasuke was gone. Kakashi was practicing his rock climbing and activates his First gate. Kakashi reaches the top of the rock and is surprised to see Sasuke. Lee was not also in his bed. The girls see that Lee is outside, doing push-ups to become stronger, so they go to visit Lee. Ino and Sakura admire Lee that, despite his condition, he still trains. On his 200th push up, lee finally falls down. At this time, Shikamaru is training with Chōji. Sakura left the daffodil intended for Sasuke in Lee's room. Jiraiya stops peeking at the girls and tells Naruto to call it a day, with Naruto insisting that he can still train, winning Jiraiya over with his Sexy Technique. On his last attempt, though, he can't still summon a frog.
