"Something about your dramatic break-up with Kabuto-san?" she asks, tilting her head.

Permalink

After a pause: "About that, yes."

Permalink

"If you're defecting…" she says warningly.

Permalink

"I am."

Permalink

"Just because I like you - "

Permalink

"You owe me your life," he interrupts. "From before Orochimaru."

Permalink

That gives her pause. "Huh. I'd thought you didn't remember that... Orochimaru-sama's rescued me since, though, and this isn't the type of thing I can avoid sides in."

Permalink

"I'm not expecting you to just avoid talking. I know he wouldn't stand for it. But between the two of us, we can avoid anything Orochimaru could send, and - "

Permalink

"The Leaf's not going to take in his cast-offs."

Permalink

"Which is why I'm going somewhere else."

Permalink

"And you think your plan will work - why?" But she's eyeing Cam.

Permalink

"Without you helping them, by the time they find us I'll be stronger than Orochimaru."

Permalink

"So, basically, I betray my whole life for - what, a cute boy asking me not very nicely?"

Permalink

"I'm going to fix things. End the wars, the death. Not right away, but that's something I can do. Something Orochimaru probably could do, except he doesn't care."

Permalink

"You're either delusional or you know something," she says with a snort. "And, knowing you, could really go either way."

Permalink

"Name one thing you want. Any material object," he says, somewhat on an impulse.

Permalink

She pauses, regards him, and: "The lost library of Uzushio."

Permalink

"I'll get it for you."

Permalink

"...You don't feel like you're having a mental breakdown… You know what? Fine, but if Orochimaru-sama catches up I'm saying you kidnapped me. Let's go."

Permalink

"If we have time, I'd like to release the prisoners here - "

Permalink

She rolls her eyes. "They'll break out soon enough on their own, but, sure, let's leave chaos in our wake, that sounds fun. You do realize most of them would attack me?"

Permalink

"They won't attack me. We'll leave them supplies and boats, too, for any who can't cross the ocean on their own."

Permalink

"Fine, whatever." And she turns and walks to a flat section of the cliff-face, putting a hand against it. The stone shimmers blue and then slides down. "This'll take me a few minutes to do right, but no one's even looking this direction yet. We've got about a hundred prisoners, some chronic injuries but nothing acute."

Permalink

Sasuke nods, and turns to Cam. "I'll go make sure she actually does what she's saying. Can you make medical supplies, food, water, basic transport for that many?"

Permalink

"Yes but the locals won't recognize the medical supplies I know. I can try to do a first pass on translating instructions for them if you give me an idea what kind of medical problems we're talking about? I also don't know if you lot are likely to be allergic to something I'm accustomed to everybody eating, like, are you lactose-tolerant, can you digest gluten, will somebody go into anaphylaxis if I include peanuts -?"
