“I suppose I’ll have to start with you after all, Naruto.” The words were smooth, breathing calm and collected as he quietly stepped further away from the others. This was it, he knew. The final battle. “…But not here. Let’s go somewhere else.” That didn’t mean he wanted to do it, though. “You know where.”
This was never how he wanted it to end.
Gritting his teeth, Sasuke closed his eyes and took a few steps forward.
How could he do this to them? Turning on the very people that had never ceased to love him, to believe in him, within a moment’s breath after he no longer had need of their teamwork to beat Kaguya? How could he betray them again, after everything they had just been through? Even when he’d tried not to get attached, there was a warmth that told him of how much he had missed them all. He didn’t want to have to do this to them, especially not after hearing them cheer victory, laughing and smiling as they thought they finally reached the end of it all—as they thought that everything would be back to normal, now.
They didn’t deserve this.
Exhaling quietly, he continued his way onwards—away from his team, away from his second family, away from everything he once, and still, held dear. Away from those who held him back.
Naruto, his best friend; the only person that would ever come close to understanding his pain and suffering, the knucklehead he once used to spend all day belitting, the one person, after Itachi, he’d formed his strongest bond with—the one he found he had no choice but to kill for the price of a better world.
Kakashi, his mentor, who had taught him everything he’d come to know about real, true teamwork—the one who’d also taught him how to use chidori, whom he had once hoped would only be used to protect the ones he loved.
(Oh, how far he had fallen, in his sensei’s eyes.)
Sasuke clenched his fists a little, mulling his lips into a thin line.
Bowing his head, he took a step forward, and grit his teeth a little. She deserves this less, out of everyone.
Yes, the Gentleman’s eyes changed back to normal when he got his heart back! Empty eyes reflect the lack of heart. I would LOVE to hear all your theories! I have some of my own~ Part 3 will be posted in a few hours. When that’s done I can’t wait to read your reactions and theories! <3
Oh my gosh that’s so true! Everyone that doesn’t have a heart, their eyes are a golden color but once they have one they are dark. That’s so ingenious!
