For the past week Naruto had been going back and forth between waiting for Itachi at his house, then once Itachi had left hed go back to Sasukes house. This was beginning to be too much for the blonde to take, he didnt want to just hurt Itachi but he couldnt lie to him, making false promises that he knew he couldnt keep, he had to end things with Itachi, but to keep safe, Sasuke his incase Itachi should lash-out at Naruto.
Itachi, I have to tell you something...
Naruto sat down, his stare was at the ground,
What is it Naruto? He asked, sitting beside him,
I dont want to live a double life anymore! I dont want to hurt you, but Ive been seeing Sasuke...
What are you saying Naruto?
Its over between us... His gaze still did not meet Itachis,
Itachi sprang up furiously, How could you do this to me Naruto! I thought you cared about me! And for once, tears rolled down his face, overwhelmed with instant sadness,
I liked the fact of being with you Itachi...not you...Im sorry, so sorry I hurt you Naruto whispered
You cant do this to me Naruto! I love you! Ive been with you through everything! And you go back to the person that hurt you the most!?
He never meant to hurt me...he explained everything...I forgave him...
You little SLUT! I loved you so much and this is how you return my feelings?! I HATE YOU! He hollered
Naruto stood shakily, Itachi, you dont mean that! He cried
Oh you really think that do you?!
Itachi, please stop...
Stop? Stop what?! The pain I feel, the hurt and betrayal I feel, thats pretty hard to stop! He wiped the tears that blurred his vision,
Well its too late now Naruto! I should have done this along time ago! Itachi, who was overwhelmed with anger, which blurred his good-judgment and the utter sadness that wracked his brain, he threw a charka-induced kunai leaving a large gash straight across Narutos head, scarlet blood poured in and on the outside of the wound, his face went back, and his eyes rolled until the whites of his eyes showed, with a loud crash to the floor, a pool of blood around him, he was knocked out,
You die now, Naruto Uzumaki!
Itachi! Brother! Dont! Sasuke ran out, a kunai in hand, holding Narutos head up, cradling the rest of his body in his arms, What have you done Itachi?! Sasuke cried
Something that should have already been done along time ago... He took out a second kunai,
*Bam!* Itachi was suddenly out cold, he was hit in the back of the head,
Thats enough Itachi...I had a bad feeling this was going to happen...this is an unfair fight, I could kill you now, but eh, itd be no fun to watch... Kisame, slung Itachi over his shoulder, So, until next time I suppose...
Sasuke nodded cautiously and Kisame nodded back, then disappeared
Hehe spared us?! He actually knocked out Itachi... Sasuke gasped, Theres not much time I need to get you to a hospital and fast. He quickly ripped a piece of his shirt off exposing part of his pearly white abdomen, he applied pressure, wrapping it tightly to ensure no more blood would be lost. He then scooped Naruto up gently holding his head up and holding him close to his chest, he started at a light pace then to a full run,
Please hold on Naruto... He thought worriedly
Heeyyy its you again!!! HEY HEY MISTER!
He heard a kind yet loud and bubbly voice, its you! He gasped still running, it was Brandy, she still recognized Sasuke, and well, god only knows how she got there.
Sir, please listen! Im a nurse at the hospital in the village, my name is Brandy! Give me the boy, hell be in good hands, promise! She smiled, so it seemed to Sasuke that smile never left her lips, in a case like this one, it annoyed Sasuke a little
He gave her an uneasy look but well, she helped him before, so he handed Naruto to the girl
Please, be careful! He blurted out
By the looks of things...hes lost a lot of blood...its all rushing in and out of his head, theres a definite amount of head trauma, youre luck you ran into me! But dont worry hes in good hands now! She giggled and sped off
Happy...and extremely fast...eh, strange girl... She was almost like Sasukes guardian angel, at the rate he was going, Naruto might not have made it in time. Truly grateful Sasuke ran off after her.
A few painstakingly long hours went by as Sasuke passed up and down the hall worriedly wringing his wrists, if he heard no word on Naruto soon, he would surely break down.
Pacing isnt going to make things go faster you know... There stood Brandy giggling at the oh-so nervous Sasuke,
How can you be so happy?! When my boyfriend is in there dy
Hes fine sir, I told you to trust me. The surgery was successful, we suctioned up all this blood, stopped the internal bleeding in his head and stitched him up! So dont worry! She said with more pep then anyone had ever spoken with stood beaming at him,
What a relief... Sasuke sighed,
It was such a huge gash, he was hit pretty hard, were you two in some sort of battle together? She asked,
Yeah, I thought I lost him for good...I dont know what I would have done...
Hes lucky to have you then...Im quite jealous of him really... She giggled, waved merrily then left,
A doctor came out shortly after, The patient is returning in consciousness, hes okay to see now.
Sasuke jumped up, his heart pounding out of his chest as he nodded, and sluggishly walked into the room.
There hooked up to I.V.s, breathing and pulse monitors, laid Naruto, still as can be, he looked almost dead. Sasuke moved over to him sitting beside him he leaned down close to Naruto, he felt his warm light breath calmly sleeping peacefully, Sasuke took Narutos hand in his own,
I promise to always protect you...theyll be back again...I can feel it...
We can beat em right Sasuke? His voice was soft, he seemed to still be in a daze from the amnesia, from when they put him under
Yeah... He whispered, But more importantly, how do you feel? He asked quickly with a worried tone,
My head hurts, and the room feels like its spinning a little
Well thats thankfully normal for head trauma, my brother really hit you hard...
