Fire to the Kage- Chapter I
Fire to the Kage Chapter 1
Haven’t you wondered why it’s all turned out this way? I have, every single day of my life since that accident; I have asked myself that one question. While children go out to play, go to school, have friends, family… I get nothing? How is this fair? To make it clear for you I should probably tell you about the accident, so…
It was an exceptionally hot night, and I barely got any sleep. Nightmares about the war have made me get up at 3:00a.m., drenched in cold sweat, heart beating quickly, blood roaring in my ears… I imagined bullets shooting my way, tearing through the air with an ear splitting whistle. My friend was running away in the direction of the desert, in vain attempt to get away from the terrorists. Suddenly came a bright flash and that was the last I have seen of my friend… After the initial moment of shock I recovered and got on with my own escape. Running… images flew past when I ran out my door. I ran until I reached a cliff. If only I could jump over… No, I can’t make it, if I did that it would be my final shot. I allowed myself a look back. I saw an armored man running at me with an incredible speed. I had to. I had to jump, no chances otherwise. I looked down at the drop, it was about 50 paces down, but I had no chances. I’d rather die than be captured. I closed my eyes. Just as I was ready to jump, two strong arms grabbed my shoulders. I roared with pain, but the man covered my mouth. His hands were rough and tasted of blood. All I could remember was a bright flash and then darkness, I got knocked unconscious then. The next morning I woke up in an old, dusty tent. It smelt burnt and raspy. I found out that I have been abducted by the other village, Sunagakure. That was when the torture started~ forcing to kill, moving at night, no food, sickness, I could go on… One day, I decided that it was enough. I refused to kill and work. I got sentenced to death…
Now, as you know my story, I have two questions to ask you; Why has it turned out this way? The hurt, the pain… I would know, writing this a day before my own execution.
Suna Guard: Wake up you useless prick. Kazekage wants to see you.
He grabs my shoulder where I got shot. I’m too asleep to notice and feel pain. I would never have faced this man if I decided to jump earlier. My friend, my only friend at that time, was Aruko. When I wanted to destroy Konoha, I met this boy in the forest. He is only 13, but he had something about him that I couldn’t quite understand. He had a born ability to heal, and he had no reason to live without me. And now, since he is dead, I regret my decision. Itachi was right.
Sasuke: Uhh.. excuse me.. am I dead yet?
The guard looks at me with surprise, he doesn’t understand anything. He only has the illusion that everything he does is right. So that’s what it takes to be a shinobi of Sunagakure.
Guard: Ah. You conscious already? I thought Sakura-chan’s drug will do the job taking you out until we are Kazekage’s palace.
Sasuke: Sakura.. eh? I don’t really remember… is she a shinobi?
Guard: So Madara did brainwash you after all.
I’m afraid he is right, Madara has been using me. I’m a tool of hatred and power. A true avenger. Madara wanted that to stay the same. But looks like the drug, what ever it is, woke me up. I wasn’t a complete emo after all.
Guard: Stand up, Uchiha Sasuke, we are entering the palace. Kankuro-sempai, I need some more chains. I don’t think this will hold this prick.
Kankuro: I’ll take him from here.
I look at the palace, sand falling from it.. moving slowly towards the entrance… and I see…
