The next morning both teams were prepared to set out ot Konoha, but Lee asked to stay. In fact, he practically begged. It was a bit out of character, but Tenten felt bad and allowed Team Seven to go back to Konoha. Neither Sasuke nor Sakura told the others about what happened the day before with their encounter, so it was only by coincidence that she let them off the hook.Sakura was in charge of the team and told them to pack up immediately.
