Nee smiled back at Mizuki playfully and continued to harvest what was needed. He had become accustomed to the way she brushed off small playful chat. Ironically, it was part of the reason he enjoyed her company.

It was at that moment, with a swing of rage, the entrance to the cottage blasted open in such aggression.

Nee stood in shock as the man he had once fought with alongside his sister hung at the entrance of Mizuki's home. It was as if the world around him has stopped and began working in reverse.

The pain and the anguish all rushed back and streamed down his face.
It wasn't until the man started shouting that Nee noticed the bright red hair that hung in Itachi's arms. It was a bittersweet reunion.

He screamed Manami over and over again. Yelling uncontrollably.
Well at least that was what his mind allowed him to believe.
In reality, he stood motionless and unmoved. All that emerged was the tears and nothing else.

Shock had forced him into a catatonic state. The sticky Aloe plant had fallen to the floor.

Itachi nodded as Dr. Mizuki assured him that she would save her. Her piercing green gaze met his own as she asked him about Manami. He became alarmed as she talked about her own life being taken if she healed her.
"Don't say that, Mizuki. No one's dying on my watch!"
Itachi clasped Manami's hand in his, her skin cold to the touch.

"Her name is Manami Tsukino, and she's in the Akatsuki, like me. She is also the woman I love the most in this world. I knew that she loved me, too, but to think that she would..."
Tears formed in his eyes, but he brushed them away. This was no time to give in to despair, not as long as she still drew breath.
"Somewhere in this world is a young man named Chiharu who also loves her like a sister, and she must live for his sake, as well."

His head whipped around in shock as Mizuki addressed another man in the room, someone he hadn't even noticed up until now.
"Nee...?"
That name jogged his memory, and he remembered facing down a Hidden Mist ninja, scarring him in retaliation for him hurting Manami. It was clear now that this was her brother, who had been searching for her all this time. He seemed to be comatose, in complete shock at seeing his sister like that. Whatever their past, the two were no longer enemies, and Itachi turned back to Mizuki.

"You're wrong, Dr. Mizuki. You fulfilled your promise, for this woman who I love with all of my heart is also his sister. For his sake, too, you must save her."
His eyes became determined, the same Itachi who was among the best of the Akatsuki.
"Tell me what I must do to heal you once this operation is done. Don't even think about not seeing the sunrise tomorrow, Dr. Mizuki."

The redhead forcefully shook off another rising bubble of jealousy at how Itachi spoke of the young woman he had brought before her. She mentally chided herself for having such foolish and rude thoughts. Stupid.

Her attention was drawn away momentarily as a slight thud met her ears, prompting Mizuki to turn towards the source. Some of the aloe had fallen to the floor as her would-be apprentice dropped it in his shock.

The questions never had a chance to leave her lips as Itachi's voice filled the room once more. So this was Nee's beloved sister. What a convenient and unexpected coincidence.

A soft, somewhat pained laugh escaped her, a sad smile on her face as she returned her focus to the girl she was healing and her favorite patient. It was admittedly heartwarming to see the family reunited and especially flattering to hear Itachi declare his resolve to help her. How on earth could he be a truly bad person- a criminal hated by the shinobi world?

"You truly are a kind man, Itachi Uchiha." She remarked while gracing him with a smile, sweat beginning to soak her skin and breathing getting more painful. "Seems I was correct when I first met you. You are not an evil man by any means, no matter what happened. I have looked into an evil person's eyes; you do not have the eyes of a murderer'."

Looking back at Minami, she considered the question, not once pausing in her work of absorbing any illness and injury the woman carried. "In any case...I do not know if you can make such a promise, though I appreciate the kindness. I have never taken the injuries of someone so close to death as this, so I cannot say for sure how I will do..."

Mizuki coughed, a splatter of blood landing on the table beside her patient as she sank into a chair, feeling more of her body succumbing to the damage.

"It is true I can heal anything, but as you see, I must take it myself. However, I do have the ability to afflict illness or injury upon anyone as well if I choose ..." smiling ruefully, she turned to face Itachi and stop him before he spoke. "But no, I will not pass any of this to you- otherwise her sacrifice will have been in vain. So unless you have the ability to bring me to a surgeon right away, or have other enemies and individuals after your lives for me to pass some of this on to, then please do not worry about me. Besides, it would likely take dispersing the damage among multiple parties to ensure survival."

Resting her hands directly on Manami's chest now in order to spare her energy holding them up, she shook her head gently. "And I've said it before, haven't i? You don't need to be formal with me. " Mizuki coughed again, wincing at the growing pain as her eyes began to blur with blood.

She didn't feel right having Itachi address her so formally. She wasnt officially taught the art of medicine. It was her father passing on his knowledge, endless hours of self-study, and a natural affinity that granted her this power.

Itachi closed his eyes and softly shook his head. He had done too many evil things to be called a good or kind man. No matter what acts of kindness he did now, they would never erase the blood of his clan that forever stained his hands. He just didn't want anyone else to die, especially not for him. Itachi was tired of the killing and the bloodshed. If he never held a weapon or fought again in his life, that would be just fine with him.

Itachi opened his eyes and turned to Manami, noticing how her red hair seemed especially vibrant against her pale skin. Her injuries absorbed from him were extensive, and now it seemed that Dr. Mizuki would have to take them upon herself in turn. Guilt stabbed at his heart as yet another woman ran the risk of dying over him. When blood was spewed from Dr. Mizuki's mouth, he knew he had to do something. He would not let these two noble women die, no matter what it took to save them. Itachi nodded at her words, his eyes burning with determination.

Itachi did actually know of a man who would be able to save Dr. Mizuki. He was an underground surgeon of great renown, but he was very costly. He didn't really trust him and so didn't use him much, but he would if it meant saving her life. Itachi had saved up quite a bit of money during his time in the Akatsuki, and he would use every bit of it if he had to. His thoughts were interrupted when she said that he didn't have to be so formal with her. They had spoken of this before, but Itachi respected her and so he found it hard to do so.

Mizuki was not looking so good, so he prepared to rush her to get help as soon as he could. He knew where to find the surgeon, and the shortest route to get there. If he could possibly do it, he would keep both Manami and Mizuki alive. A small smirk appeared on his face.
"If you make it through this, I'll never address you formally again."
It seemed like such a small thing, but in matters of life and death, there were no such things as small things.

It all happened incredibly fast.
One moment he was cutting up a plant- the next his poor sister was next to death in the arms of the man that Nee assumed had stolen her away from him.

When reality set back in, a blurring image of green Aloe jelly across a stone floor forced its way into Nee's vision. His eyes locked towards it- daring him to look away and see the true horror that had erupted in Misuki's practice.
He looked up at the door again but no one was there. He heard the faintest muffled sound of voices and turned his attention towards it.

Mizuki stood above Nee's broken sister- taking the many wounds on to herself. Itachi stood emotionally to the side. A cascade of Mizuki's blood dashed itself across the floor- as every internal injury from Manami clung to its new victim.

What happened next was purely reactional. For a moment Nee forgot about his sister lying on the table- and instead focused upon the woman he had shared his time with over the course of the last few months.
Lunging forward, he placed his arms around her waste and locked his hands together.
She was beginning to feel cold.
He knew she would hate his arms around her and he knew how passionately she liked her own space. Yet, he felt a strong desire to help her live- alongside his sisters life- she was someone he cherished, because she had helped him live on without his family.
' Take what Chakra you need from me, let me help you share this burden so that we may all survive'
He spoke in a rather forceful tone, that suggested 'No' was not a valid answer.

From the short time he had spent alongside the Doctor, he had learnt that one could share the burden of injury with another healer. However, Mizuki had taken on most of the extensive wounds- meaning she would still need to heal and see a gifted medical nin.
' Come on Mizuki- let me help! Take whatever you need'.

'Don't look at me like that, I had already planned to give my life in exchange for yours- -even if only secondhand from your love who saved you first.' Mizuki thought as she met the Uchiha's eyes, hoping to give him a reassuring smile. "I'll hold you to that." she replied, pleased he finally agreed not to be so formal. She only looked at him a moment longer before returning her attention and remaining strength to her patient. She was working steadily and going through methodically to make sure she didn't miss any critical injury. She promised Itachi she'd fix his love, and damn it she was not about to break that vow!

Mizuki didn't bother to wipe away any sweat or blood, solely focused on making it through to the end. Pain wracked her body, and exhaustion was quickly setting in. Despite this, the medic didn't pause in her efforts. She could not, would not, fail. Mizuki knew she could do it, all she needed was to remain conscious until the end...

Mizuki's focus was interrupted with a jolt and a slight gasp as she suddenly felt a warm set of arms around her middle. The touch resulted in an odd combination of shock, worry, and utter bewilderment. For a few seconds, the young woman ceased in her efforts to absorb the damage and disease that now plagued the kunoichi on her table. Concentration broken, Mizuki glanced over her shoulders to see Nee had effectively locked her in his arms. Had she still enough bloodflow in her veins, her face would have likely burned in mortification at the unexpected action.

Mizuki took a shaky breath, ready to tell Nee he had to let go and let her finish when his voice cut off any attempts at doing so. Take his chakra...?

Realizing his intent, Mizuki's first instinct was to deny she needed help. About to say as much, another cough came instead, causing her broken ribs to burn at the force. Wincing in spite of her efforts not to, Mizuki took a shallow breath and inwardly relented, thinking the options over in her mind. Still slightly reluctant, she gave a brief nod of acceptance and gratitude. "...Very well. If you are certain." she murmured softly, vision blurring more from the blood starting in her eyes and from a growing heaviness.

Refocusing on Nee's sister once more, Mizuki continued to take her injuries upon herself, intent on finishing the job properly. She didn't want to admit it, but she could definitely uses some help. This young woman must have far greater resolve and chakra than she did, in order to actually take everything and not die or pass out beforehand. After all, such injuries alone would end with death, nevermind the fact that completely depleting one's chakra also spelled out the same fate. The thought was more frustrating than she'd ever admit.

Hands on Manami, Mizuki took a moment to focus before continuing with Nee's help. Despite what she presumed he was suggesting, she wanted to try and heal her fellow redhead without involving anyone else. If she could just siphon a little bit of extra chakra to help her get through the process, perhaps it would be enough to finish. And maybe...just maybe if she was lucky enough, she'd have just enough chakra left over to keep her body going for a brief period after (although she thought it impressive Itachi had kept himself going as long as he had when he had first sought out her skill, and he had been uninjured then). Brows furrowing, Mizuki had to make sure she didn't give Nee any of his sister's wounds, but only utilize some of his chakra he was generously offering.

"...Regardless of what comes, I am glad....to have met you both...." Mizuki said sincerely, smiling at Itachi and Nee briefly before turning back to their precious person. She was almost done, fighting to maintain consciousness and clarity of mind to effectively sponge up any and all injury. "She'll...be fine in just a few..." Talking was too much effort, so Mizuki went silent, feeling a slight relief in spite of her probable death now that she was confident she would successfully finish healing Manami.

Itachi watched as Mizuki used all of her ability and some of Nee's Chakra to finish healing Manami. He smiled with relief as she said that she would be fine in just a few minutes.
"Thank you, Mizuki," he said, deciding to not be formal with the woman who had given her all to save her love.
As she looked like she was about to fall, Itachi scooped her into his arms and held her bridal-style.
"I will not let you die."
Itachi turned to Nee with a determined look in his eyes.

"Stay here and look after your sister. When she comes around, tell her that I took Mizuki to a doctor so that her wounds could be treated. We will return as soon as possible."
Leaving the hut, he raced as fast as his legs could carry him across the miles. In the Land of Lightning, he finally found the home of the gifted underworld surgeon. Going inside, he saw the man had just finished a surgery not long before.

"Itachi Uchiha...I was not expecting to see you here today."
The underworld surgeon's true name was unknown, as was his past. He was known simply as The Doctor, and even his face was unknown, as no one had ever seen him without his green surgical hat and face mask. There was a hint of brown hair peeking out from the hat, and his eyes were a piercing blue, but that was all that could be seen.
"This woman is Mizuki, a doctor who took on the injuries of her patient to save her life. I need you to treat her before she dies."

The Doctor had Itachi lay her on the table and did an examination.
"These wounds are extensive and life-threatening. I can save her, but for a surgery this labor-intensive, it will cost you."
Itachi fished a large bag of gold from his robes and set it on the table.
"I trust this will cover the costs."
The Doctor nodded and slipped on his surgical gloves.

"I will do all that I can to save her. Please step out of the room so that it will be sterile."
Itachi left and sat in a chair in the waiting room. The Doctor began performing the operation on Mizuki, using a combination of surgical techniques and medical Jutsu to methodically heal her injuries. When he was finished treating her wounds, he bandaged her up and transferred her to a hospital bed where she would rest until she was recovered. The Doctor then went out to the waiting room to speak with Itachi.

"I have healed Mizuki's wounds and bandaged her up. She will live, but she will need to rest."
"Thank you, Doctor. You have no idea how grateful I am."
The Doctor nodded and led Itachi to the side room where Mizuki was resting in the bed. Itachi sat down next to her and breathed a sigh of relief while the doctor began cleaning the operating room.

She swore she had seen the light.
An aggravating bright and glaring light that beckoned her to come forward from the dark.
Manami had given her all, the searing pain was now leaving her.

Her eyes flung open, her vision was blurred and lacked colour. However, the room was empty and sterile.
Steadily, she lifted her body up- and a strangers arms grasped behind her back to help her.

Nee stood stoically behind Mizuki, as she took what chakra she needed from him to heal his sister.
With every inch of chakra that left him, he felt himself weaken slightly- but- he was not about to give up on either woman.

Once complete, Mizuki fell back into Nee's arms but was quickly scooped up by Itachi, who exited rather rapidly to heal her.
he left Nee to attend and care for his sister.

He cleaned her up, cleaned and wrapped her existing woulds, that were no merely scratches. Strategically, he filled and attached fluids and removed her Akatsuki cloak to gain better access to her arms- in case he needed to monitor her pulse. It was almost like he has visited his childhood again, looking after his younger sister.

An hour or so passed before Manami had began to stir- but Nee did not leave her side.
She still looked broken and blood stained in places, yet her breathing was strong and she was beautiful as she had always been.

When she awoke and lunged forward, Nee was ready and by her side. He propped his hand behind her and guided her head forward. He took the time to explain what had happened- but she clearly was not aware enough to fully understand at this point.
The siblings held some small conversation before Manami fell back into sleep- though he was sure she was not fully aware that she knew who he was.
Admittedly, Nee was exhausted from helping his mentor work. Still holding onto his sisters hand, he drifted into his own sleep, his head lain on the crisp white sheets.
