Damn, poor 'tachi-kun! I barely stopped the tears at how detailed the murder seemed.

I really liked the way your portraited this side of the shinobi life... like you said before, it had ups and downs, hard decisions to be made, priorities to be sorted out, no hesitation, and the fact that Itachi lasted so long in the ANBU team is remarkable. In the end, I think he found his redemption, he's gonna teach Genin and he also have the support of his beloved, so everything will be quite fine :)

Minor nitpick - the past tense of 'drag' is 'dragged' not 'drug'. It was enough to jar me out of your story since for the most part your grammar and spelling are really very strong.
Going back to the story, I could feel Itachi's pain and the trauma to his gentle soul. He's a ninja, but he is not immune from feeling and this expressed that beautifully.
I think Itachi's decision to step down was a good one. He's not emotionally able to take the demands of ANBU anymore.

This was a personal favorite of mine, where Itachi was a gentle and peace-loving man. This has always put me on a story, I can relate to Sakura and Itachi, I'm hot-tempered and violent most of the time...in fact, my boys nicknamed me 'Haruno Sakura II' it was an amusing tittle that I gladly accepted. But by nature I too am a pacifist, I make my boys repent when they prod and test my volatile mood and ill-temperamental self, but sometimes, I'm just plain uncaring or maybe send them off with a vicious death-threat...haha. That doesn't sound pacifistic, does it now..hehe.
Always and forever will be your faithful reader,

You are right in your assumption. Itachi is not above himself to not feel guilty when he takes someone's life be it out of duty or necessity. Even if he is heralded as a killing machine, he is still a man and very much human and thus will be prone to emotions that would otherwise break a lesser man had they not have Itachi's training. It was clearly shown in Sasuke's retelling of the aftermath of the Uchiha massacre in the later chapters when Sasuke remembered that Itachi was crying after he tortured his beloved little brother with tsukuyomi. I don't see any loopholes in the flow of your story and I very much love this story. Humanizing a killing machine is never one's cup of tea but it is the reality, if anybody ever bothered to think about it. Thanks for sharing this.

I was expecting this, actually. Every story has sad parts.
I agree with you there. In my theory, everyone has chakra. The difference is just the amount. A civilian has lesser amount and a ninja has more. The child, being a child and a civilian at the same time, must have had an almost undetectable chakra signature thus Itachi's ANBU group failing to detect the child's presence. Basically the same thing you said. :D
I am also a research geek. Google and Wikipedia are my most visited sites aside from . And I think things through a lot. Don't be surprised if you see me blankly staring at nothing. That happens a lot.
Ooh, how exciting! And unique! I'd love to read about Itachi-sensei.

Itachi always seemed the type to me who would kill a child, then practically kill himself mourning for like, a mnth at least.
| Kintora 5/18/10 . chapter 1
Ah... I wish Itachi could have employed his Sharingan to erase her memories or something. Poor kid. :( Though as usual, this oneshot was nicely written.

Amazing... I found this story absolutely incredible. I mean, I read this one before, but as I was rushing to catch up with the rest of your series, so I didn't really give it any thought. Now, however, I found a connection with this story and it took my breath away. Sad, sure, but definitely with a hopeful note. :) Also, there's a song that I was listening to while reading it: Little One by theset. Check it out, ne! It suits perfectly! ;) Anyway, awesome job! I shall now read the next one... :D Ja ne! . - Cady

This one was so serious! I liked it a lot! I can imagine Itachi with a genin team :) should be fun! Thanks!

The ninja lifestyle...certainly has its upsetting moments. I think you did a really good job in portraying that, especially Non-Mass Itachi's reaction.
Itachi-sensei...is a unique idea XD
