As I took off the seal I observed how much my younger sister has grown. Her hair was mid-back, still pink, I thought with a smirk. Her Rinnegan was not like mine, that much I knew, as I saw her ringed reddish eyes. She was still short though. That didn't surprise me that much, our mother had been short.
I could tell that leaving her with Kakashi was the right thing to do. Although those damn Elders will pay for erasing my little sister's memory so that they may use her as a tool for them. Oh yes, he and the rest of the Akatsuki would make sure of it.
I was pained to see her remember the day that Orochimaru attacked base. That snake bastard was intent on getting my precious blossom for is body transfer jutsu.
I guess it would be proper and gracious of me to thank Itachi's little brother for killing that snake. That is if I ever see the young boy.
Pein seemed to have taken some sort of seal off her, when the hell did she get a seal put on her?
My little girl showed happiness and then pain on her face. I know those release hand signs...they're for memory locks. I have always wondered who left her in those woods when I found her. She was a very odd sight for me that's for sure.
I still remember that day clearly. I was coming back from a mission when I came across a little pink haired girl in the middle of the woods. I took her and asked her where her parents were. She said her home was attacked so I took her to the Elders, I thought they would help.
Guess they wiped her memory as Pein said.
I looked at my brother who looked passive as ever but his eyes gave him away. He looked relived yet angered at the same time. Those memories were just too much, my entire first seven years of life flashed by in my mind. I'm utterly screwed, no doubt about it.
'Yes, yes you are. This is just something I didn't expect. I wonder how this is going to play out.'
Oh will you shut up and let me think demon, I thought.
"Sakura-chan are you okay?" Naruto asked, still in his fox form seething.
"Yes," I said with a clear voice, very proud of myself for not faltering.
"Good now let's kick some Akatsuki ass!" Naruto said getting in an attack position.
"No! Just...just wait a second Naruto you don't know who you're dealing with," I said fearing for his safety.
"What do mean NO! This guy comes around, claims your his sister, and you act as if you know them. You're not thinking straight Sakura-chan," he yelled at me.
"Kakashi I think you have figured it out by now, tell him," I told my father figure.
Kakashi sighed, "It is true Naruto, Sakura is his sister. The Elders wiped away her memory of them, for unknown reasons. The only proof that we really need is their eyes. It's extremly rare for someone to have a Rinnegan, let alone two people."
"Hatake," Pein said with no emotion what so ever, "Those foolish Elders of yours are trying to use my sister as a weapon for your village. And now that Orochimaru is gone, courtesy of Sasuke Uchiha, I have come back for my sister."
"So the rumors are true, he really did kill him," Kakashi said with little interest, "but you're not taking Sakura."
So that was who attacked base. But what am I going to do? Demon, you can come in and give me your wonderful advice anytime, I thought.
'Well you have a decision to make now don't you...your boys or your family. If I was out there right now I would go with the Akatsuki.'
And why would I go with them?
'I know you care about Naruto. It's simple actually. They want him for the nine-tails and your dearest brother wants you back for obvious reasons. So make a deal that they stop hunting Naruto for a period of time and you go with your family.'
Naruto and Kakashi would stop me though and I don't want any bloodshed, I thought.
'Since I want to learn more about this lovely crime organization you keep talking and let me handle those two.'
And how do you plan on doing that?
It didn't answer.
Seriously this is Naruto and Kakashi, the ones always keeping me out of harm's way. I guess I have no choice but to trust it if I want those two to live.
"Come on kitten let's get a move on," Kisame urged her, while giving me a toothy grin.
"Stay away from her!" Naruto shouted, his own teeth getting pointer.
"Wait! Naruto, Kakashi let me handle this. They are still my family after all," I said morosely.
"What do you mean we ar-" Naruto was saying till I stopped him.
"Shut it now," I said in a dangerously low voice then I turned to Pein, "I want to make a deal."
I saw Kakashi take a step closer to get behind me, "Sakura you don't know what you're doing. Don't try to make a deal with him, please," he pleaded.
This was going to be the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I knew I could knock them out with one look at them with the Rinnegan. So that's what I did, along with my demon's help.
I turned around, Rinnegan still activated, "You two both know that I love you...I'm so sorry," I said with tears in my eyes as I knocked them out with those last words in their heads, I hope. I wiped away the tears and turned to my brother.
"I want to make a deal," I proposed as sadness still tinged inside of me, "I know you guys are after Naruto, and I also know that you all care for me. So will you not go after Naruto for at least six years if I come with you and stay?"
My brother looked at me with a blank stare, but I remembered that I had always been able to read his eyes better than anyone, even in their Rinnegan form. He was in deep thought I picked out, and I knew he wanted me home more than anything, I just wasn't sure if he would give up hunting Naruto for me though.
"Yes that can be arranged sister," Pein said then turning to the rest of the Akatsuki, "You all have your orders now go."
I watched as my family left in a blur, and then I went into my pocket on my right hip, looking for some paper and pencil. I should leave them something to remember me by.
Pein came behind me and put his large hand on my skinny shoulder, "What are you doing?"
"Informing them of our deal, Pein. I promise it won't take long."
He nodded in approval then went to a nearby tree and kept a close eye on our surroundings. Then I started to write.
Dear Naruto and Kakashi,
I will be gone by the time you read this. I have made a deal with my brother that he and his group will not hunt you for six years as long as I stay with them. Please Naruto don't be angry at me and come after me, I care for you to much. And Kakashi don't go and do anything stupid either.
I love you both so this is why I am doing this. Thank you for everything.
I felt a tear fall from my eye and then saw it fall onto the paper. I had this nagging feeling that I would enjoy my new home with my old family, though I was pained to leave my new family.
They will understand...at least I think Kakashi might.
'Hope your right Saku.'
My demon's comment made me feel a little more down as I turned around to face my brother.
This is it, I grimaced taking Pein's hand and jumping into the forest off to my new home.
