~010 – Sixth Sense~
You were starting to think these Akatsuki guys had some sort of sixth sense. You had noticed a small pattern when it came to who joined you in purgatory. The guys rarely ever looked at through the clouds to the world below them. Many of them claimed there was nothing interesting down there to see and that watching people was boring and/or rude, as they weren't giving them privacy.
So, when they did find something that interested them, mildly surprised you. And the majority of the time, it was another Akatsuki member (you had still yet to find out what that group did… some sort of male book club perhaps?) fight they were watching, the fight would end with a death and that person would walk through the gates to join you on this plane. It made you wonder if they could just sense when one of them was going to die.
This thought was running through your head as you approached the boys, who were all sitting around another hole in the clouds. You peeked over Sasori's head, as he was the shortest, and looked down at the view below. As you predicted, they were watching two raven haired males fight.
"Come on Itachi, un! Kill him! Avenge me!" Deidara yelled down at them, despite neither of the boys being able to hear him.
"Why the f*ck would Itachi want to avenge you?" Hidan asked him, raising a silver eyebrow.
"Besides brat," Sasori began. "Sasuke didn't kill you, you killed yourself. If Itachi for some unexplainable reason wanted to avenge you, he'd have to kill you, not him."
Tobi blinked at him from beneath his mask. "But why would Itachi-san want to kill Deidara-senpai if Deidara-senpai is already dead?"
"Danna didn't mean it literally, baka!" Deidara barked at him, glaring at him from across the hole. As per usual, he took out his frustration on the masked good boy as he crossed his arms and sulked.
You sweat dropped at his actions, before diverting your attention back to the scene below. The taller boy appeared to be winning, and was reaching towards the younger one's eyes. But, before he could gauge them out, he paused, smiled, poked him in the forehead and then collapsed to the ground. You all watched shocked, clearly not expecting that to happen. No one really knew what to say to this, except Hidan.
"What the f*cking hell?"
And with that, the dirge began playing again, signalling the next spirit's appearance. You jogged over to the gates with, surprisingly, the rest of the group in tow. The gates opened and a silhouette became visible. The shadow walked cautiously into your plane and blinked at your party as the gates closed behind him. His black eyes were focused on one person in particular. "Madara-sama…?"
"Nope~! Tobi~!" Tobi chirped in response before running over to him and pulling him into a bone crushing hug. "Tobi missed you Itachi-san~!"
Itachi clearly didn't know what to think of the masked man, and resolved to simply patting his back. He scanned the crowd that gathered, his eyes filled with recognition. Until he spotted you. You smiled at him and stretched out your arms to the side.
"I'm [Name]. Welcome to purgatory!"
A/n: A very short chapter this time, but that seemed like a good place to end it. And so, Itachi joins the mix. I'm starting to run out of Akatsuki members, which means the plot will be meeting up with us soon. Excited~? Also, double digits! :D
