Hastily, Manami followed her team mate round the sharp bend of the inner city walls of the leaf village.

As Chiharu dealt with the first squad of attacks, Manami swerved from behind him- unleashing her pheromones to a concentrated level to the first two team members. The last member, who was female, was gifted with a foot to the side of head- and with quick succession, she joined her two pleasured team mates on the floor.

Ahead lay a deadly battle with another of the leaf Villages finest trios.
Lee and Chiharu began their battle- leaving Manami to deal with Ten-Ten and her long range attacks.

Hurtling towards Manami, came a veritable armada of weapons that Ten-Ten had concealed within her scrolls.
Manami most certainly could not dodge the attack, so instead she chose to divert her path into the nearest building on the street.
Manami crashed her entire body through a wooden fronted window, gaining a few surface cuts in the process.
If she had any chance of winning this fight, she had to make her way to Ten-Ten by using the cover of the building.
Dusting herself down, she darted and weaved through the building, climbing up to it's highest point.
From outside, blades rocketed into the building- it was clear that even though Ten-Ten could not see her, she was most certainly following Manami's movements from outside of the building.

Chiharu was immediately under attack from Lee's Strong Fist style, which was aiming for external damage, including the breaking of bones. Chiharu's own True Taijutsu style was very similar, and so he knew that he would have to defend his center line at all costs. After Lee had back flipped off of him, however, Chiharu had dropped his Diamond Armor so that they could have a true battle using nothing but Taijutsu. Win or lose, Chiharu wanted nothing less than an all-out battle with Lee, a chance to finally push his Taijutsu skills to the absolute limit. Lee's whirling kicks that were coming from so many different directions were not easy to ward off, and without his own extensive training, he would not have been able to see them. Chiharu tried to counter with precision strikes wherever he saw an opening, but Lee's defense was also top-class and he wasn't letting anything through.

The fighting was fast and furious, with Chiharu moving to the side and dodging to avoid Lee's swift kicks and punches. His own punches and kicks seldom made contact, and they were always blocked as Lee moved with him and continued the barrage of high-speed Taijutsu. Both of them were moving while hardly breathing, and Chiharu knew that his conditioning would have to hold out against him. If he got tired first, he could take some big damage that might see him lose this fight. He waited until Lee threw another left roundhouse kick, and dodged in the opposite direction, jumping backwards to put some distance between them and allow him to take another breath. Lee was right on him, however, coming with a right roundhouse kick that Chiharu avoided before countering with his own left roundhouse kick toward his face.

Lee showed great flexibility by blocking the kick with his arm and proceeding to roll over his leg. As his hips turned, Chiharu was struck across the mouth with a heel kick. The force of the kick caused Chiharu to spin through the air like a spiraling football. Rather than crash into the ground, however, he reached out with his right hand and smacked the ground to catch himself and spring outward into the air. Back on his feet, Chiharu met Lee's charge and began executing combination attacks of punches and kicks. Lee responded in kind and so many of his attacks were nullified, but a persistent Chiharu finally slipped one of his kicks and landed a hard punch to his nose.

Lee was knocked back a few steps, but reapplied his stance as Chiharu pressed his advantage. Both Taijutsu Masters as children, the blistering speed between the two made it impossible for onlookers to follow their movements. Not a single part of the body was not used in this incredible clash, but Chiharu always watched Lee's legs the most. His most rapid attacks came from his kicks, and one particular kick came at Chiharu's head so fast that he could not dodge it, only block it with his arm. Thanks to his strong stance and sheer grit, Chiharu took it without moving, but that level of force was something he had never encountered before.
I can't block too many of those kicks or my arms will become too damaged to fight!

Chiharu pushed the leg away and threw a flurry of punches, these being his most rapid attacks. One punch was blocked by Lee using his forearm, but he pushed forward with all of his strength to throw him off balance. With split-second timing, Chiharu then turned his body in a single rotation and buried his foot deep into Lee's solar plexus, sending him flying with the force of it. Lee did a back flip to recover and raced forward once more, jumping toward Chiharu in an attempt to plant both knees into his sternum. He put his arms together to stop this attack, but realized that he had been baited with Lee slammed both elbows into the top of his skull. The sudden pain and force caused Chiharu to drop his guard, and this led to him being kicked hard enough under the chin to send him into the air.

Being in the air was a dangerous place to be with Lee, who had perfected several aerial combat techniques. To deal with this, Chiharu tucked himself into a ball to defend his face and center line. As he weathered several strong kicks to his arms, back, and sides, he waited for the opportune moment to strike. When Lee threw another kick, Chiharu launched his plan into action. Putting both hands on Lee's leg, he pushed himself further upward into the air and then spun his body like a ball to gain momentum. On the fourth spin, he lashed out with both legs in a double kick to Lee's face.

Lee was not fast enough to avoid the attack, and was sent crashing downward with great force. He managed to land on his feet, though it left some cracks in the street from the impact. Chiharu landed normally and took his fighting stance. Seeing that they were evenly matched, Lee knew he would have to get more serious. Reaching down, he raised up his pants to reveal heavy weights attached to his ankles. He removed them with a great crash, and now the fight had reached a whole new level.

Manami steadily ran from building, avoiding each onslaught as it rained down from the sky. Though the buildings provided excellent coverage, this game of cat and mouse could not keep up forever.
Manami was getting tired and knew that eventually other ninja's could easily run into her whilst she down from building building.

As Manami encroached on the next building, she made her first move and began making her way to the roof.
Agility was going to be key here.
Like the unleashing of a bullet from a gun, Manami sprang to the roof top and began making tracks towards Ten-Ten.

Ten-Ten locked onto her target in the distance.
' You can't escape! Stop playing games!' she called, as the distance between them shortened.
Again, she withdrew a scroll from her waist belt and unravelled it, transporting kunai blades with explosive triggers upon them.

Ding! Ten-Ten had just given the game away. If she was willing to send explosives towards Manami, then this section of the village was already evacuated.
From roof to roof, Manami danced- the kunai presented some challenge as they blew roof tiles in every direction.

Ten-Ten realised that Chiharu's partner was more difficult to slow down that she had first thought- small attacks that would work on weaker opponents were not going to cut it.

With the removal of his leg weights, Lee was much faster than before. Chiharu struggled to keep up as attacks came at him from every direction. He managed to block every attack, but even these blocks were doing damage to his arms and legs. If he just stood here and kept defending, he would be worn down and defeated eventually. He would have to take the offensive, and so waited for his opportunity to arrive. When Lee came in again, Chiharu launched his counterattack.

He ducked a flying kick aimed at his head and countered with a vertical kick that landed under Lee's chin. When he was knocked airborne, Chiharu followed him up and wrapped his legs around his neck. Turning his body, he slammed Lee headfirst into the ground.
"Crushing Twist!"
Chiharu did a couple back flips and took a fighting stance. Lee was injured, but got quickly to his feet.

"That was a great Taijutsu technique. However, I cannot afford to lose here!"
The two rushed at each other, exchanging blows in close quarters. Chiharu did his best to dodge the powerful kicks, his own blows trying their best to find their target. The battle went on for several moments before their fists collided and they pushed each other back. Chiharu reapplied his stance, ready for another round of combat.

Lee rushed at him again, his attacks even faster than before. Chiharu ducked a high kick, but then realized that he had fallen for a trap. Lee swept his legs out from under him at great speed, and Chiharu was sent rolling away down the street.
"Leaf Hurricane!"
Chiharu got to his feet, though his legs were very sore. Lee turned to him, a look of solemn determination on his face.

"I didn't want to have to use this."
Chiharu's face turned more serious, knowing something big was coming. Lee took a different stance and brought his hands up. As he clenched his fist, an incredible aura started to appear around him. Chiharu's eyes went wide and his stomach tightened up as he realized what was coming. The legendary Eight Gates were about to be used, and he didn't know if he would be strong enough to withstand them.

Manami danced around each explosion with haste. If she was going to have any success here she had to make her way to Ten-Ten.
Someone who spent so long fighting long distance would find close range attacks difficult.

Like a jolt of electricity, one of the exploding blades Ten-Ten sent rippled a stack of slate upon the roof that Manami had landed on. With a crash, the roof below her collapsed.
Manami landed with a large and devastating crash into the bottom floor. Luckily, she had managed to position herself so her fall didn't impact her too badly.

As she dusted herself off she realised the immense pain from her wrist. This long range crap was really getting on her nerves- it was now or never if she was going to stop these ridiculous, pernicious onrush.

Manami ran from the building she had fallen in- then began climbing her way back towards her opponent- who looked quite pleased with herself.
Ten-Ten began to unravel her latest scroll as Manami made the relevant hand symbols.
'Burning rose!'
Burning petals dove from the sky- directing their attention to Manami's opponent. Ten-Ten dropped her scroll and manoeuvred herself away from the destruction. Each flower burst wildly as they landed, blowing bricks a mortar across the now abandoned section of the leaf village.

As each explosion landed, a hurricane of dust and brick ash flew across the battleground that Manami and Chiharu were fighting in.
Giving Manami the advantage over Ten-Ten, who was now blindly finding her way to higher ground.

Lee had opened the First Gate, which caused an incredible green aura of Chakra to appear around him. He rocketed forward at increased speed, so fast that Chiharu could barely follow it. He felt himself kicked into the air, and his first instinct was to go into the fetal position to protect himself from further attack. However, before he could, he felt himself being wrapped with Lee's bandages so tightly that he couldn't move. Lee turned him so that they were spinning headfirst toward the ground. It was then that Chiharu realized that Lee was using the Primary Lotus, a vicious Taijutsu technique used with the Eight Gates.

Chiharu remembered the last time he had faced this technique, four years ago after the Hokage had been abducted. He had faced Kakashi and tried to prevent her recovery, and during that battle, the Copy Ninja had used this technique on him. Chiharu felt a sense of panic welling up in him, but he pushed it down. He was more experienced now than he was back then, and he knew what he had to do. As the ground got nearer, Lee jumped away so that only Chiharu would hit the ground. However, this was when he launched his counter to the technique by using Substitution Jutsu and getting away.

Once he had broken free from the attack, Chiharu went on the offensive. He went after Lee with combinations of punches and kicks, landing a few but missing or having his attacks blocked most of the time. Lee was still faster because of the First Gate being open, and he used that to make some space and open the Second Gate. Even faster now, Chiharu was forced back under a barrage of kicks that he struggled to fend off. It was a furious exchange of blows, but Chiharu was still holding his own. A solid kick to the stomach knocked him back, and during his recovery, Lee opened the Third Gate.

Moving at incredible speed, Chiharu was battered from right to left. It was impossible to follow the movements, and he was knocked into the air with a punch to the stomach. It was only once he was airborne that he realized the bandages that were wrapped around him. Lee was in the air in front of him and pulled on his bandage. Chiharu was yanked toward him, and an incredible impact to the solar plexus shot him back down to earth. His mouth opened in a silent scream of intense pain, feeling like his whole body was broken.

For his part, Lee felt exhausted and like he could barely stand up. The Hidden Lotus was a powerful technique, but it exacted a heavy cost on its user. Closing the Gates, Lee sought to maintain as much power as he could, wanting to conserve a little in case Chiharu was not defeated. Chiharu grit his teeth from the pain and planted his elbows on the ground, struggling to rise. He got up a little bit, then lost energy and dropped back down. He was breathing heavily from the pain and exertion, but he refused to give up.

Chiharu lifted himself up again, fighting the pain to sit up straight. He slowly got onto his knees, and then moved one foot so that he was kneeling. The pain shot through his body in protest, but he stubbornly pushed it aside.
I can't be defeated...Not here...Not like this...
Slowly and unsteadily rising to his feet, Chiharu finally stood up, though his vision was swimming. He felt nauseous, and it took everything he had not to vomit.

Once the nausea passed, Chiharu looked up and fixed his eyes on Lee. He was barely standing up, as well, having used most of his strength with the Hidden Lotus. Both of them knew that this next offensive would settle the fight. Chiharu couldn't fight much longer, just enough to use one last Fist of Rage. If Lee withstood that, then he would lose and it would be up to the rest of the Akatsuki to bring the victory home. However, every fiber of Chiharu's being refused to lose, and so he resolutely stepped forward for the showdown.

Taking his stance, he approached Lee, who did the same. Lee sprang forward and threw several kicks at Chiharu, who looked for the right opening to finish the fight. When the opening came, he pushed forward off of his right foot and rammed his right fist into Lee's solar plexus.
"Fist of Rage!"
The incredible impact propelled Lee backwards and he rolled several feet before he stopped face down. After several moments Chiharu smiled, realizing that the fight was over and he had won.

Exhausted from his hard-fought battle, Chiharu moved over to where Manami was still doing battle with Ten-Ten. He had faith in Manami's ability to win the fight, and so he wouldn't interfere unless her life was in danger. Dropping to his knees, he took deep breaths as the pain eased from his body. Rock Lee had been one of the most difficult opponents he had ever faced, a man who took him to his limits and beyond. He was proud to have fought him, and of the role he had played in this battle. Watching Manami as she did battle, he silently cheered her on and tried to recover from his intense battle.

Ten-Ten was now showing clear panic.
Her long distance advantage was now nowhere to be seen, as Manami rocketed forward towards her.

Slightly more tired from her previous encounter, Manami made her first connective blow to Ten-Ten.
A fist dove wildly into her stomach; the brunette kunoichi spun back as the connection was made.

For the next five minutes, Manami sparred against Ten-Ten. Since Manami was tired, Ten-Ten was successful in landing a few blows.
However, it was obvious that close combat was not her style and her weaknesses were obvious to all.
Like a mirage, Manami landed a series of devastating combinations. However, as each closed fist hit, Ten-Ten rose.

It wasn't until Manami realised that Chiharu had successfully defeated Ten-Tens partner that she knew she had to finish this.

As Ten-Ten lunged forward to attack, Manami sidestepped and dodged.
Reaching out, she grabbed her opponent by the hair as she tumbled forward after missing her attack.
Manami pulled her back hard with great force, despite her struggling.
She then locked her into a hold to knock her unconscious and waited patiently for her to sleep.

Chiharu watched as Manami continued to battle against Ten-Ten. It was a hard-fought battle, but his partner finally got the win by choking her unconscious in a grappling hold. With the fight over, Chiharu got to his feet and walked slowly over to her.
"Good job on the win, Manami."
He fell on one knee and chuckled between breaths.
"I guess I used too much energy in the last fight."

All over the city, the Akatsuki were winning on all fronts. Many of the Jonin and Chunin had been defeated, with the Anbu being pushed back to the Hokage's Mansion. Pain and Konan had made their way to the mansion, and the Anbu fell before their combined onslaught. However, one ninja was not going down easily. That ninja was Naruto Uzumaki, who had entered Sage Mode to honor the fallen Jiraiya. With the hopes of the Hidden Leaf on his shoulders, he pushed Konan and Pain back until they were outside of the village.

Chiharu could feel the intense Chakra emanating from Naruto and Pain as they battled.
"Unreal! There was a ninja in this village that could fight Pain on equal footing?!"
He tried to head toward the battle, but couldn't walk more than a few steps.
"Manami,please help me get there. I need to see this battle with my own eyes."

As the battle came to an end, Manami breathed a sigh of relief.
Her energy was now depleted- she would not be able to exert her energy like that again for at least an hour.

Her focus was brought back to reality when her partner congratulated her work. He looked exhausted, pained and near collapse.
He had clearly used too much energy on Rock-Lee.

In the distance a huge surge of energy could be felt. Manami knew what this meant-the final battle was going to take place. Even in her battered and bruised state, she could sense the pulsating energy of Pain- colliding with a new an unknown energy.
Each piece of male energy had a unique smell- and Manami could sense it all. However, this new energy was amazing.
A sheer volt of positivity danced in the atmosphere. It clashed against the smell of hot iron that pulsated from Pain.

Manami stood in silence. Captivated by the ferocity of these two men.
She knew beyond any doubt that this was Naruto.
The young boy of the fox spirit- and- in that moment, she longed to meet him.
To see what kind of child could tame and control the horrid spirit that destroyed so much.

"Manami,please help me get there. I need to see this battle with my own eyes."

Her concentration broke.
Turning towards him, Manami smiled.
' Of course, We shall go together-'

Taking Chiharu's weight, Manami hoisted his arm over her shoulder.
The pair made their way to the battle- Manami, unsure of weather she wanted Pain to succeed against this boy.

Chiharu felt his arm being slung over Manami's shoulder and struggled to walk as they made their way to the battle. This would be the final clash to see if the Akatsuki could take the world as they planned. When they arrived, the other members of the Akatsuki were there watching the battle in solemn silence. Kakuzu and Hidan had the unconscious Hokage between them, captured and defeated shortly after Pain and Naruto began their battle. Chiharu saw Naruto in clothes much different from the kind he had seen him wear years prior. His Chakra was amazing, a kind of boosted Chakra similar to the Eight Gates within Lee.

Chiharu watched as Pain and Naruto had a vicious back and forth battle. His boss unleashed incredible new attacks and even had multiple bodies attacking his foe, but Naruto kept up and even pushed the pace. It was a true clash of titans, and Chiharu even found himself almost rooting for Naruto at one point. However, in the end, Pain was the stronger, and lasted a devastating combo that knocked Naruto out of Sage Mode and into his regular form. As Pain went to finish him off, Kakashi quickly appeared and spirited himself and Naruto far away. The Leaf had lost this day, but both of them would live to fight another day.

With that, all of the Akatsuki members cheered. At last, the day they had planned for years had come true. The Five Great Nations had fallen, and the Akatsuki would reign supreme. Pain approached the unconscious Tsunade, regarding her for a moment.
"Should we kill her, Lord Pain? asked Kakuzu.
"...No, leave her alive but imprisoned, so that she cannot become a martyr for an uprising."

Kakuzu and Hidan picked her up and took her away. Chiharu turned to Manami with a bright smile.
"We did it, Manami. We won."
He was able to stand on his own and stood there, tall and proud. Though he smiled, he felt bittersweet feelings coursing through him.

Chiharu was elated that the Akatsuki had won, and that he had fulfilled his promise to help Pain create his new world. But now that that task was finished, it was time for him to go and rejoin his family in death. It would be hard to say goodbye to everyone in his Akatsuki family, but he would need to do so. When Kakuzu and Hidan returned from locking up the Hokage, Chiharu turned to Pain.
"Pain, I...I want to withdraw from the Akatsuki."
Many of them were shocked, and Pain regarded him with a curious look.

"Have you fulfilled everything you sought out to do?"
"Yes. My revenge is over and the Akatsuki have taken control of the world. It's time for me to go."
"Thank you for everything, Chiharu, and I hope your reunion with your family is as joyous as you imagine."
"I do have one last favor to ask before I go, though."

"For all you have done, don't be afraid to ask."
"Please allow the samurai of the Land of Iron to be free and independent in this new world. After I lost everything, they offered me home and shelter, and I want to pay them back for that."
"Of course. I will see that Mifune and his men are not troubled as I reorganize the world."
Chiharu shook hands with Pain, saying his goodbyes to the man he had followed for the last four years of his life.

Chiharu next shook hands and bid farewell to Konan, who was relieved that all of the fighting was coming to an end. He thanked Kakuzu, Hidan, Sasori, Deidara, Tobi, and Zetsu for all of their help and support. The time then came to bid farewell to the people who had been the closest to him. Chiharu undid his sword and handed it to Kisame, fulfilling a promise he had made two years ago before the attack on Orochimaru.
"Thank you, Uncle Kisame, for everything."
He then turned to Itachi.

"Uncle Itachi, I owe you so much. Thanks for everything."
He then turned to Manami and tears appeared in his eyes. Of all the people in the Akatsuki, he was closest to her, his partner and big sister. He hugged her tightly, holding her close.
"I love you, Manami," he said, never having loved her more than in that moment.

After breaking the hug, he took off his Akatsuki coat and headband before handing them to her.
"Goodbye, Manami. I'll never forget everything you did for me."
With that, he turned and began walking out of the village. His destination was the Land of Iron to see Mifune and his samurai. There he would say one last goodbye before going to join his family in the afterlife.

Manami staggered towards the final battle with Chiharu- they gathered with the other members of the Akatsuki. Manami sighed with relief to see Itachi unharmed.

As the battle raged on, Manami could sense each man. One intent on death and destruction- the other full of peace and tranquility.
It had been amazing to watch.

Shifting uncomfortably, she looked towards the Hokage- who lay limp in the arms of Manami's brethren. Tsunade was no longer the stunning young woman she was known to be; but instead a frail old woman, close to the end.
What had they done?

Manami was now decided.
She did not like what she was doing.
She did not agree with Pain any longer.
She was happy to die in place of Itachi and join Chiharu and her parents in the afterlife.

SNAP- back to reality.
The others around her cheered in glory. Pain had won.

Manami joined the celebrations, careful not to give her true feelings away.
Chiharu then began to say his farewells and even though Manami was prepared- she was caught off guard all the same.
He hugged her- finalizing their family.
Like a river of pain and anguish, tears fell heavily down Manami's cheeks.
Through broken sobs she managed to utter...
' You have made my existence into a life Chiharu- and don't you ever forget that.'

As he turned to walk away, Manami vowed to see him again soon.

As Itachi watched Chiharu walk away, he knew it was time for him to embark on his own mission. He had something to settle with Sasuke, and the young man needed to know the truth about why he had really killed the Uchiha Clan. With the world in the grip of the Akatsuki, there was nothing to distract him from the goal. Turning to Pain, he bowed respectfully.
"Lord Pain, I also request leave to undertake an errand. It is something important that I must take care of before I take up further duties for the Akatsuki."

Pain regarded him for a moment and then nodded.
"I understand. I give you leave to go."
He knew that there was a chance that he would not see Itachi again, but he had loyally served him all this time and deserved this chance to tie up his own affairs.
"Thank you, Lord Pain."
Itachi turned to Manami.

"Would you mind if I took Manami with me? It's always better for the Akatsuki to travel in pairs, even now."
Truthfully, he knew that Manami was suffering from Chiharu's departure, and he didn't want to leave her alone. She had always been there for him, and now it was his turn to be there for her.
"Your logic is sound. I give you both leave to go."

Itachi smiled.
"Let's go. We have a lot of ground to cover before the sun goes down."
He took off with her and they were soon in the Land of Fire. Itachi didn't know exactly where Sasuke was, but he knew what his Chakra felt like. He could be anywhere in the world, so they would have to look carefully.

Manami took a moment or two to calm herself- knowing that she should not show her emotions around the Akatsuki- especially Pain. She was glad that her own life was shortly going to end- all this death, anguish and destruction made her hate what she had become.

When Itachi requested to take her with him, she took her place next to him.
For now she had to place her own emotion beside and begin preparing for what she had to do.

Before the pair took off to complete Itachi's mission, Manami took the small silver crest she once kept by her bed and fastened around her neck.

The amount of coverage the pair had to make before the sun went down was monumental. Itachi had known that Manami's own talents of sensing men would come in handy for finding his younger brother.
Faint twists of darkness hung in the air- and she knew that it was Sasuke. A conflict of pure innocence, clattered against a stolen darkness that writhed through the essence of childish spirit, like a snake. He had one of the most conflicted Aura's Manami had ever sensed- rivalling that of his older brothers.

'I sense him in the wind- he won't make it hard for you to find him- You are giving him what he wants'

Itachi nodded at Manami's words as they kept running.
"Yes...He too knows that it is time for us to settle things."
The two of them could sense the darkness radiating off of Sasuke, and it was forming an invisible trail within the wind. Itachi felt great sadness as he realized that his brother was like this because of him, his longing for vengeance having led him into a deep darkness. His actions taken in order to save his brother had ended up turning him against him, and now it was time for both of them to face their pasts. It was ironic how destiny played with people as if they were puppets.

Itachi continued to follow the darkness, traversing many lands with Manami by his side. They traveled through the night, stopping only briefly to rest before the next morning. They finally tracked the source if Sasuke's Chakra to an abandoned village in the wilderness, and he stood there as if he had been waiting for them.
"About time you showed up, brother," Sasuke said with a dark look on his face.
"Please stay back, Manami," Itachi said.
He then stepped forward to confront his brother and his destiny.

The two stood across from each other before taking their fighting stances. Sasuke had drawn his sword, leaving no doubt that he intended to kill his brother. Itachi drew a Kunai knife and took a defensive posture. After several long moments, the two rushed at each other. There was a clash of weapons, and then they broke away only to clash again and again. The fight to the death between these two brothers had begun.

The tracking of Sasuke had not taken long.
Now the two brothers stood opposite each other and a lifetime of waiting was now about to meet its revolution.
Manami made note of how alike they were, sharing the same distinct eyes and sparks of the same aura.

She too a step back at the request of Itachi- making sure she was far enough away to stay safe but close enough so that she could see the battle.
Manami was strangely calm about the whole ordeal- the fact that Itachi was getting to live out his destiny made her feel at ease.

Both brothers rushed into battle. Sasuke, like a snake, graciously thrusted is sword forward.
Itachi quickly countered this with the kunai he held within his hand.
Forcefully, like polar opposites in a magnet, the pair flew apart after their blades connected.

This certainly was not going to be an ordinary battle.

The battle between the two brothers continued as opposites clashed. Sasuke was full of rage and swinging his weapon with anger, each strike reminding him of all he had lost. Itachi on the other hand was calm, deflecting his blows and countering with Taijutsu techniques that forced him back. Sasuke's speed and strength had increased greatly since their last clash, as had his bloodlust. He kept coming at Itachi again and again, trying to break through his guard from different angles. However, Itachi's guard was absolute, and he defended himself with great skill.

Seeing that this first approach wasn't working, Sasuke jumped back and prepared to strike with a Jutsu.
"Fire Style: Great Fireball Jutsu!"
After making the appropriate hand signs, he held the side of his clenched fist up to his mouth and blew into it. A huge fireball came shooting at Itachi, and he jumped high into the air to avoid it. However, Sasuke had been waiting for this exact moment and moved with great speed to appear behind him.
"Die!" Sasuke shouted as he thrust his sword forward, intending to impale Itachi through the heart.

However, Itachi dodged the blow using a Substitution Jutsu, and countered with an axe kick to the top of Sasuke's head. Sasuke recovered by doing a slip and came back at him to continue the fight. Fire Jutsu flew everywhere, with both brothers using the Fire Style against each other. Itachi avoided the Dragon Flame Jutsu and landed a kick on Sasuke's stomach, which forced him back. Their weapons clashed again, and they were soon fighting at great speed. The two were continuously pushing each other, each trying to get the advantage in the fight.

As the fight progressed, however, it became clear that Sasuke had surpassed his older brother. With ferocity, he broke his guard, hammering and slashing at him with fury. A technique using both the Fire Style and the sword did damage to him, and left him open to a finisher. Sasuke's hand began glowing with the lightning of the Chidori, but instead of blue, it was black. Rushing at his brother, he seemed to go right through him at incredible speed.
"Chidori Lament!"

Sasuke landed behind him and Itachi seized up from the electrical shock. After a moment, a dark red stain appeared around his chest and he coughed up blood. Unable to stay on his feet, Itachi fell backwards and blood started to pool around him. He had lost the fight, and now he was going to die. The thought of death terrified him, but he also felt relief that he was finally facing his fate. As he had always thought, those who murdered their own clan never died decent deaths.

Sasuke stood over him and looked down at the dying brother he had waited to take revenge on for so long.
"Before you take your last breath, I want you to answer something for me."
The dark anger went out of his eyes and a sadness appeared there.
"Why? Why did you kill our clan? How could you kill our parents and everyone else we loved?"

Itachi didn't answer for a long moment, gathering his words. His breathing was getting shallower, and he knew he wouldn't last much longer.
"The Hidden Leaf...wanted to exterminate our clan."
"Why?"
"Danzo...He thought we were a threat. He wanted the Third Hokage to approve the extermination...said it was for the safety of the Hidden Leaf."

Sasuke clenched his fist.
"Danzo..."
Itachi coughed, trying to speak more.
"I found out about the plot, and convinced them to let me do it. That way...I could spare you...and our clan...could live on..."
Itachi's head then fell back, looking like he had died.

Sasuke closed his eyes and his fist trembled with rage.
"Danzo...You won't get away with this."
With that, he turned and walked away, having a new target for his revenge. When Sasuke had been gone for a few minutes, Itachi turned his head to Manami, having not passed away yet after all.
"Manami..." he wheezed out, barely able to talk or breathe.
He reached out with his hand, wanting to die while holding the hand of his beloved.

The young man who had collapsed upon her doorstep had yet to leave, the male in question seeming to think she required compensation in the form of physical labor. This was of course, not the case, but Mizuki found she didn't currently have the heart to turn him away in his state.

He had come to her in a quest to find a cure for his sister- a cure for a natural born ability she carried that caused her much trouble in life it seemed. The poor man had initially been ready with purpose and coin with which to pay her, looking at her with the most hopeful expression she had probably ever witnessed. He had shared with her his anguish at how he found himself unable to convince his beloved sister to seek help. How she had defected and attacked some of her own.

Mizuki was of course willing to help- if she even could. She made sure Nee knew she couldn't guarantee she could relieve someone of an ability or any conditions that came with it. But finding someone who was part of the most infamous group of shinobi the world over was not exactly something she had any realistic chance of doing. Nor did the young man currently have ready contact with her.

By now, he had given up the hope he had come to her with. Mizuki was well aware he had since decided that he was unable to find help for his beloved sibling, and even worse- that he wouldn't ever see her again.

Thus, Mizuki had taken pity upon the young man and offered that he stick around if needed. He had traveled far to find her, and was collapsed from exhaustion, dehydration, and several injuries when he had arrived. She couldn't in good conscience shoo him away after just recovering and in a depressed state of mind. A person whose hope had dwindled so much was at risk of ending it. While she didn't think Nee was likely to off himself, she also didn't want him to do something stupid or reckless either.

Besides, it was admittedly pretty nice to have some help, and she didn't really have company on a regular basis. Even so, the young woman wasn't entirely sure about what to do with her patient turned helper. Surely he had a home to go back to, and people who missed him?

Speaking of missing people, a certain regular had yet to show up for his medicine. Mizuki glanced over at a shelf with two bottles set to one side, picturing the mysterious Uchiha who passed by on the second Tuesday of each month. Said Tuesday passed four days ago, and she was feeling an unusual sense of worry churn in her gut. The man was never late.

The redhead checked her mask on impulse, ensuring the only part of her face that was visible was her left eye and upper cheek. It was a silly habit that had gotten a bit out of hand, but before seeing anyone she had to make sure she was covered. Satisfied her mask had not somehow magically moved, shrunk, or otherwise failed to hide her scar, Mizuki went to see how Nee was doing with scraping the sticky flesh out of some aloe leaves. Hopefully he wouldn't be cursing or frustrated with the plant by now- -although she knew she herself most certainly would be. Wonderful plant. Annoyingly tedious and messy to extract the usable ingredient.

For a long portion of the battle, Itachi seemed entirely in control.
He deflected his opponents wild swings and attacks with such composure. Grace and fluidity radiated in every move that he made.
However, Manami felt uneasy, it seemed far too simple and peaceful- and from the aura that Sasuke was radiating, there was more to come than the angry swings of a blade. His younger brother was like a snake, sly and domineering. Sasuke was going to win by any means possible.

She watched as the battle turned deadly. She pained to see the man she loved coming to what he believed was his end.
Upon his revelation of the truth to his brother, Manami knew she had to act quickly. There was a small window of time before she could use the stolen jutsu.
With great haste, she removed a life scroll from the small bag attached to her leg. It was important for her to double check what she was doing, with this move being kinjutsu, no on else had tried it before other than Lady Chiyo of the sand.

When she brought her attentions back to the battle Sasuke had left.
He now knew the truth about what had happened to his clan and he would seek to further his revenge.
Luckily, Itachi was alive but fatally injured- which made Manami more confident in what she was about to do.

Itachi weakly called her over. Now was the time.
She glanced over him one more time- he was so close to death. His physical appearance now matched the pained emotion that he had been carrying all these years.
Taking his hand, she looked deeply into his eyes.

' You did well my love- I'm sorry'

Jolting her hand from his, she placed both her palms on his chest and knelt on his left side. He looked panicked through his blood stained eyes; as if her knew what she was to do.
It began..

Blue life force chakra surrounded her palms- the feeling of depletion was instant.
It was working but Manami could feel her life leaving her and her vision blurring.
This not was enough for her to stop. She just hoped that he would not halt her actions before enough of his wounds were healed.
Looking up at his eyes again, she smiled- this was her gift to him.

As her life drained away into his, she started to cough and blood splattered on the opposite side of Itachi.
His internal injuries were now becoming her own -and his bloodied vision trickled down her own cheeks.
She could no longer see.

That was the last of Manami's memory.

It had been months since Nee had arrived at Mizuki's door. Drained of energy and rather manic.
Upon the chance to leave, he chose to stay and repay her kindness.
She cared for him when others may have left him to suffer.

Nee steadily scraped away at the small annoying plant he had grown to hate.
Once a strong and trusted soldier- now a medics assistant.

He had enjoyed his stay with Mizuki and had come to realise that he was likely never to see Manami again. His beloved sister, who he would have walked through fire for was now gone.
He understood that she may never have been able to forgive the village for abandoning her.
In fact, would she even be able to forgive him after their last meeting?

He brushed off these cruel thoughts, that haunted him at least once a day.
With haste, he continued peeling the Aloe plant that he had been left- he had to admit that this was his least favourite thing to do.

Mizuki entered, after positioning her mask, looking enthused at Nee's struggles. Over the course of the last few months he had aided her, kept her company and picked up on her small neurotic tendencies(though he never questioned them).
'I am sure you get joy from the turmoil I suffer from these plants' Nee scoffed.

Itachi grasped Manami's hand with what strength he had left, and shook his head when she said that she was sorry.
"I always knew...it would end this way. With you here...I can die...in peace."
His vision was going black, and he knew that death would soon wrap him in its eternal shroud. He looked into Manami's eyes, wanting those beautiful eyes of hers to be the last thing he would ever see. All of a sudden, he was shocked to see Manami draw her hand back and place both of them on his chest.

Itachi, being the prodigy that he was, instantly knew that she was going to use Kinjutsu to save his life at the cost of her own.
"Manami...no..."
He didn't want to be saved, didn't want his love to sacrifice her life to save him, but he didn't have the strength to push her hands away. When the Jutsu began, he gradually felt his internal wounds healing and his strength returning, but was horrified to see these same wounds being inflicted on Manami. Tears appeared in his eyes as blood ran from her own.
"Manami, why?!"

Manami's strength finally gave out, and she collapsed on top of him after coughing up blood. Once again at full strength, Itachi got up and pressed his ear to her chest. There was a slow heartbeat and her breathing was shallow, proof that she was just barely alive. There was still a chance to save her, but he would have to act quickly. Scooping Manami up into his arms like a bride, his eyes hardened with resolve.
"Stay with me, Manami. I won't let you die!"

There was only one person he knew who could save her now, a woman doctor by the name of Mizuki. She was a sort of underworld doctor that he visited once a month for medicine, and she was the only one he could get her to in time. Moving at great speed, a frantic Itachi tore through the wilderness in the direction of her cabin. He was moving faster than anyone would think possible, desperately trying to save the woman who was willing to give her life for him. When Mizuki's cabin came into view, he felt his heart leap with hope. Bursting through the door, he set Manami on the exam table, where she was already turning pale as her life ebbed away.

"Dr. Mizuki, this woman is badly injured. Please, use your healing Jutsu to save her!"
Tears were running down his cheeks as he stepped back from the table to give her room to work.
"She used a Jutsu to take my injuries onto herself, saving me but trying to sacrifice herself instead."
Itachi was so grief-stricken and worried that he didn't notice Nee even though he was in the same room. It was a strange twist of fate that had brought Manami and her brother back together under the most unusual of circumstances.

Behind her mask, the young woman arched a single brow at her unexpected protoge. "Who says I get joy out of your struggle? I have never said such a thing." she remarked nonchalantly, craning her neck to see Nee's progress. It was true that she didn't take any delight in someone's trials.

But still, it was more than just a tad amusing to see his face scrunched in irritation at the tedious chore.

About to leave the young man to his task and work on making some balm, the cottage door was violently flung open on its hinges. Mizuki found it took considerable effort not to jump at the sudden intrusion into her home. Someone had all but barreled through her front door in their haste, prompting her to reach for the weapon at her side. Her hand froze just over the handle of her tonfa as she saw who it was.

Him.

Lowering her defenses, Mizuki's initial relief at seeing her late patient was instantaneously replaced with surprise, shock, then realization. Itachi was always calm and composed. He always came alone. And not once had the medic ever seen him expose his emotions.
Especially not in the form of tears.
Whoever this woman was that he put upon her table was not just any patient. This woman was important to him. Special in his eyes.

Probably the most important person in his life if his distress was any indication.

The thought was uncomfortably bittersweet. Of course Mizuki knew she had no more special a connection with this man than anyone else, nor was she deluded enough to presume he saw her as anything more than an acquaintance, his medic. Likewise, she hoped for his happiness and his overall well being. Even so, she couldn't completely suppress a slight pang of jealousy at how this young man regarded the dying girl he presented her with.

Mizuki had thought in passing that her ultimate gift would be to save the young Uchiha from his inevitable death from the disease and years of toil he had inflicted upon his body. Instead, this strange young woman had made the ultimate sacrifice she herself had envisioned. Having him be her last patient.

The medic shook such foolish thoughts from her mind, feeling both stupid and cold-hearted for thinking such things. The girl was dying, and Itachi had made a request of her. He had never begged her for a thing.

"Please cry no more, Itachi. You know I am able." she assured the Uchiha, lifting her hands over the pale, nearly lifeless body.

For a moment, she hesitated. This was no mere broken limb, no internal bruising, no cracked rib. She knew that in order to sacrifice one's own body required a Life scroll and a particular kinjutsu to even have a chance to pull off. Not like her, where she could naturally heal any injury as her great grandfather before her had been able to. This woman had managed to make the exchange of life for life. The same principle would apply to herself if she healed this girl in turn. She could heal as much or as little of anything as she chose, provided she take any injury upon herself that she chose to heal. For someone as close to death as Itachi's precious person, she might not be able to recover from the injuries she took. Even if she reversed the damage, how much would she realistically be able to fix?

But even so, she would have to try. Hands glowing softly, her visible green eye met Itachi's. "I can tell she is far more than 'this woman'. You know what it is you are asking of me. No one else can do what she attempted successfully." she said, though she was not resentful in her tone. Smiling sadly at Itachi, she nodded to the nearly dead girl. "May I know my last patient's name?" Mizuki asked.

Maybe, just maybe, she'd survive enough to recover from her injuries, or Nee might think to take her to a doctor. But she didn't want to hang on to potentially false hope.

"I apologize Nee. I was not able to help you find your sister. I wish you luck that you might be reunited someday soon." she said with a shaky breath, turning to face the young man in question.

She was anxious to be sure, but at least she felt comfortable she wouldn't have any real regrets.
