"W-who are you!"
"My name is...
Chapter 27: Expect what you least expect
It's a name that couldn't have ever erased from my mind, ever.
The name that I had read awhile ago in a passage I recall clearly...
...But regardless of the forbidden laws, a researcher named Dr. Orochimaru apparently secretly continued on the research, using many sacrifices to obtain results for his researches...
...From the years of research and finding no cure for this symptom, the Uchiha blood became a lethal weapon and was used for assassination by the ones who opposed the 4th leader Hokage of the village...
...Not knowing about the affects of the lethal gene that was known to only a handful of people working for Orochimaru in the first place, the 4th Hokage, Namikaze Minato had created an F1 generation for the Kyuubi's curse for the first time in scientific history.
So presently, the very first example of an F1 generation of the curse exists. The son

But you know what, Naruto?
I will fall into any deepest darkness with you...
I decided to keep you company and follow you till death does us apart...
So don't worry... you'll never have to feel alone, ever again...
I'll make sure of that.
Chapter 25: Another existence
"Wonders never cease with this kid..." Tsunade thinks aloud, amused. After the operation of implanting Sasuke's eyes onto Naruto, Naruto is already showing recovery signs visible to the naked eye.
The retinal blood vessels are stitched with chakra strings of Tsunade's, but a few minutes is all Naruto needs to get it glued back to originality without the stitches.
What's more, the dark onyx eyes of the Uchiha's slowly turns into a familiar blood red like as if Naruto's blood connects and circulates all the way to the iris, and then ceases, fully conquering the eye as its own body part without rejection.
After the draining of blood through the iris, the boy's original eye color pigment that the blood vessel brings,

Everything somehow seemed so copasetic then, like an end of an episode.
But I felt unnerving to know what was there ahead of us.
It was already tragedy followed by tragedy and the more I dug in to fully understand what situation I was in, it was deeply heart sinking.
Thinking that you're digging to find some sort of treasure, ends up making you realise that you're only just digging to create your grave.
What an utter failure of life...
It makes you wonder what purpose you have for existing.
Questioning your life, meant you're in an endless maze that you can never get out of, and you're constantly driven to insanity because of it like watching a black and white swirl before your eyes over and over, dizzying yourself into nausea or migraine.
...make it all stop!
Chapter 22: Blood and ink
"I'm... a monster..."
When Naruto whispers these words, I feel my heart shrink into a tight space that is way too small for it, making it a painful and a most uncomfortable e

"Sasuke... you know what?"
"Yeah, what?" I murmur quietly.
"...I'm probably going to die soon."
Chapter 20: Looks can't kill, but hearts can strike
I start hearing a chuckle and I frown in confusion. It had taken me a lot of courage to talk to him about myself and what I have burdened upon me but Sasuke is laughing away at that.
I know he's not one to betray me, hurt my feelings or laugh at me sadistically...
So...why is he laughing?
"What kind of joke is that?" Sasuke asks after his chuckle subsides a little, "definitely not the kind to say when you're hospitalised."
Oh...okay. He thought it was a joke...
It feels a little disappointing and relieving at the same time. My message isn't getting through when I'm finally trying to talk to him about myself, but taking it as a joke means I still have a second chance, like an escape route for me to back away from talking to Sasuke about myself...
But no... I can't keep running away like this I think, and build up

I hear Doctor Tsunade scream when I suddenly cough up blood and I feel as if all the puppet strings holding me up, just snap.
I feel the gravity pulling me down, and the vision of the room tumbles and sway.
I suddenly feel the limit to my life.
I hear Sasuke shouting my name over the phone.
Sorry Sasuke... like I'd thought, I can't be the reason for your living...
Chapter 31: Living Instinct
beep... beep... beep...
The constant sound keeps coming closer and closer, as if its advancing towards me.
I know this sound.
It's all too familiar that it makes me sick to hear it, like the ticking sound of a clock that you over-sensitively hear and it distracts you so much that you suddenly can't go to sleep at all.
In my case, it's the other way round.
Not as shrilling as an alarm clock that's on top of the list for the most convenient thing in your life to throw out the window at a morning you just don't want to wake up on...
But still an unwelcoming sound that welcomes you ba

"...heya, you okay?"
Sasuke asks with a shaky laugh.
But his heart freezes when he hears what Naruto has to say next.
"Why are my hands bloody...
...and who is this person laying still in front of me?"
Chapter 34: The end is near
I feel the heart beat loudly against my ears, so loud that I can barely hear Sasuke's words.
My hands are sticky with blood of another's and all I feel is the fear.
Plain, icy cold dread as if someone had stuck an icicle down my spine.
My worst nightmare... had been displayed right before my eyes, and what's worse, is that I don't recall anything.
I start to feel the loss of remembering how to breathe, and I start panicking.
"W-what's going on!? Who is this person!? What have I done!?" I start shooting questions at no one in particular, although there's only Sasuke about to listen to me.
"Calm down, Naruto! Calm down and look at the person carefully! You've seen him before, right? Just check his pulse and see if he's still breathing

Chapter 21: The identity
I close my eyes and feel Naruto's bed so comforting that I wish I could just sink into the soft mattress and never come up again.
But I'm brought back to reality in a split second when I feel a touch on my cheek and jerk in surprise.
"Oh, um...s-sorry..." Naruto apologises in panic as he retracts his hand, looking slightly frightened and guilty.
I hadn't minded. It had just been a little surprising, just that.
And I didn't want him to feel that what he did was something I feel disgusted about, so while he's still muttering something in apology, I quickly grab a hold of his hand and pull it back towards my cheek.
"If you can't see me, feel me. If you want to know about me, ask me. If you want me to stay by your side, tell me. I will never leave you. I promise..."
A knightly phrase comes out of my mouth as it automatically mouths my thoughts while I cup his bandaged face.
It isn't something I had intended to say as it sounds a bit soapy, but I don't bother to ret

"So... did Naruto-kun die?"
"Oh well, even if he didn't die now, he will eventually anyway..."
My body freezes at those words.
I suddenly feel a prick of a needle against my neck with a sharp pain, and a cold feel of liquid being injected into me, making me crumble down on to my knees.
"I had been waiting for this moment Sasuke-kun...."
Chapter 32: Sacrificial blood and regeneration
I wonder how long it's been...
Everything seems so dark... and too quiet...
Such an eerie silence that it makes me feel the fear...
I can feel it starting to consume me, like black poison, slowly starting to dye every inch of my blood, black.
I need to focus and get back my consciousness...
My body doesn't feel tired, because I can't feel it...
But somehow I feel so tired that I don't want to wake up...
Maybe it's my soul that is tired...
I never thought the body and the soul could be different, or rather the soul having the sense of feel too...
But apparently it has, becau

"Come... tell me what's wrong, Naruto."
But then my heart nearly stops at those piercing whispered words.
"There was somebody there... staring at me..."
Chapter 26: Predator and Prey
There was somebody there...
The first word that comes to mind when he spills those words with a shaky breath, is hallucination.
Is this another symptom of the Kyuubi's curse...?
"S-Sasuke...?" I hear Naruto's voice calling me unsurely.
I reach out for where his head should be, and finding right on spot, I pat his head lightly, assuring him that it's okay.
But then my skin pricks as I feel something off.
I quickly shove Naruto to the wall and take a defence stance before him as I feel a dangerous presence.
Naruto starts stuttering in panic and confusion, but I pay no attention to him as I perk my ears and listen attentively for any sound right in front of me, which is the bathroom Naruto had come out from.
And then I hear a gasp from behind.
Feeling the aura of fear from Naruto,
