Summary Edit

Two weeks after leaving Konoha, Kakashi realises he is being followed. Yamato and Sai show themselves and reveal that they have been following Kakashi because they knew he was still suspicious about Naruto's story. Kakashi allows them to go with him and informs them that he suspects that Naruto has been hiding Sasuke for the last seven years. Meanwhile, in the Unmei Islands, Sasuke and all the adult-children are feeling increasingly desperate because they couldn't find a way to reverse Nobunaga's curse and are also unable to ask for help because there's a barrier sorrounding the islands, preventing them from leaving. After getting some supplies, Sasuke, whose eyes have been itching and blurring ever since his battle, goes to his usual training spot and reminesces on how he had wanted to be strong to feel closer to his father and his desire to not have a first life, but be normal and have been born from him. Then, he goes home and tells the unconscious Naruto all his feelings but also sorrowly decides that if Naruto truly misses his old self, Sasuke was going to become him again and restore their old bond, not wanting Naruto to make anymore sacrifices for him. In his sleep, Naruto hears a crying boy but is awaken by his mother, Kushina, before he's able to reach him. Though confused by his urge to comfort and be with the child, Naruto goes along with Sakura, Kakashi and Sasuke Uchiha to a A rank mission. However, when Sasuke tries to distract the enemy, Naruto finds himself very concerned about his safety, much to his confusion.
