A/N Sadly, this is the last chapter of this story, but there WILL be a sequal, I promise! I am certain if I didnt make one most of you people will be after my head for the way this story will be ending, so I promise I will right more, and will post an A/N up on here when the sequal is posted so you can find out what happens next!
"Tobi is so confused!" Tobi exclaimed, holding his head, trying to work out who he was meant to trust. Did that mean Yoshirou WAS the bad guy after all? "What is Tobi supposed to do, Pain?"
Pain glared at everyone around him, just as confused as Tobi. If Yoshirou really DID mean what he just said... did that mean the people who brought them here were telling the truth after all?
"He's the bad guy," Itachi said, pointing to Yoshirou. "That IS my brother, and these are our comrades. HE was the one who fucked with our memories."
Pain snarled. "What should we do?"
Sasuke and Konan quickly undid the their chakra-cuffs, helping them to their feet. "You three are going to go further into the base and stay out of this, okay?"
"I want to help, Konan," Itachi murmered, standing beside her.
"No! You're going to go and tell Kakuzu and Hidan, take Tobi and Pain with you and find Zetsu and bring him there as well."
Itachi bit his lip, honestly not sure on what to do. "...Okay."
He picked Tobi up in his arms, taking Pain by the hand and leading him out of the bedroom. They found Hidan and Kakuzu arguing in the living room, informing them of what was happening, and sending them to the fight. It took a while more to find Zetsu, but he was eventually discovered hiding amongst the snow-covered rubble of the base walls, frightened by Hidan and Kakuzu.
"You need to come with us, Zetsu," Itachi said seriously, setting Tobi on his feet, pulling Zetsu from the rubble.
Zetsu whimpered, pulling away from the contact. "I-I dont know you..."
Itachi's jaw dropped and he screamed in frustration. "WHY MUST EVERYONE'S MEMORIES BE FUCKED WITH!"
Zetsu winced, pulling even farther away, and Itachi frowned, hearing an explosion and someone's cry of pain from the direction of the fight. He grabbed Zetsu anyway, putting him over his shoulder, ignoring the frightened's males cries for Konan to save him, took Tobi and Pain by the hand again and hurried them down to where he knew was safe; Pain's office.
"We'll stay in here, okay?" Itachi said. "This is Pain's office and the walls and reinforced with chakra; even if the entire base falls the office will still stand."
Yoshirou was fast; not only with his eyes but with his whole body. He had already sent Sasuke flying into the wall, using a doujutsu on Hidan and Kakuzu consectively, and knocked Konan to the ground with a bodyslam.
"It's no use!" Sasuke cried out, trying to get his feet, but he was so dazed he could barely think. "Even my Sharingan cant get me out of the way fast enough..."
Just as Sasuke said this he was sent through the wall with a poweful kick, landing in Kisame's abandoned room.
Yoshirou laughed; he knew there was no point in bringing half of his army; they were all out elsewhere looking for other possible candidates. Walking over to Konan he picked the woman up by her hair, looking into her eyes.
"Arent you a pretty one?" he muttered with a smirk. "You were together with Pain, werent you? My, my... such a good-looking couple..."
"Get off me," Konan snarled, shoving Yoshirou as hard as she could.
Yoshirou grunted with the sudden impact, shifting just enough for Konan to slide out from under him, and he growled when he realised what had happened.
"You have no hope against me," Yoshirou smirked. "The majority of the Akatsuki is out of commission. Only four of you can fight me... Three of your members are already dead, one left, one cant fight, and the other three cant be trusted. Sounds pretty unfair to me..."
"Dont underestimate the Akatsuki!" Konan shouted, sending paper kunai at Yoshirou.
Yoshirou laughed, dodging easily. "Nothing can beat occular jutsu, Konan-chan."
A voice from the doorway turned all heads. "All jutsu is only as good as the person who wields it." Pain was standing at the doorway. "What kind of fighting style you use has nothing to do with it; it's the strength to keep on going even when you've been knocked down that makes any fighting style formidible. Ninjutsu... Taijutsu... Genjutsu... Doujutsu... each are as good as the other and no particular jutsu makes it stronger than the others just for being a different style."
Yoshirou laughed. "Dear Pain, you have it all wrong... you, a fellow doujutsu, should understand the overwhelming power of the occular..."
Pain glared, Itachi into the room with them. "What was that about three of us not being able to be trusted? That was directed to us three, wasnt it? We wont betray the Akatsuki... but we'll betray YOU."
Six against one should have had a huge advantage, but even with all of their strength combined it still wasnt almost enough to take Yoshirou down. It took HOURS before Yoshirou even began to tire, and by that point, the six Akatsuki were so worn out they could barely stand, their base destroyed.
The one thing that kept them going was their loyalty to one another, not wanting to see another member fall before their very eyes ever again, even if Pain couldnt remember the others.
Once the opening was present, the Akatsuki took it as quick as they could, and at last, the finishing blow was landed, and Konan, taking no chance, finished with her paper jutsu, strangling the intruder ferociously until he was dead.
Now that the current threat was over, they fell to the ground, exhaustion obvious in all of them. Konan, knowing she had barely any chakra left at all, summoned what she could, going to her teammates to heal the most serious wounds, leaving the minor ones for when she had more chakra.
"Konan-sama," Itachi grunted as she healed a nasty stab wound in the male's stomach, "are Tobi and Zetsu alright?"
"I dont know, Itachi, where did you take them?"
"To Pain's office."
Konan smiled. "They'll be fine, then, sweety... Pain and the others are going to find somewhere to rest... I'll go check on them, okay?"
Itachi nodded, weakly getting to his feet, walking slowly to Pain and holding the older male for support as they searched for resting grounds.
Konan carefully stumbled through the ruins of the base, at last coming to the still-intact office. She opened the door slowly, finding Zetsu huddled in one corner, Tobi - surprisingly - in his arms.
Zetsu run to Konan the second he recognised her, crying softly into her hold; he had been terrified by all the commotion.
"It's okay, Zetsu..." Konan cooed, holding him tightly. "It's going to be okay..."
It wasnt until that night Konan made her first major decision as second-in-command. She had spent hours thinking about this, and the more she thought about it, the more it only made sense to go with her idea. She gathered the members together, letting them talk amongst themselves for a few minutes as she relaxed herself, trying not to cry as she thought of what she was going to tell her 'family'.
She took a deep breath, beginning. "As you all know, the Akatsuki base has been destroyed, and some of our members are incapable of ever working for the Akatsuki again... Zetsu, one of our most valuable members, has lost his ability to be a Shinobi due to his... accident... Tobi hasnt regained his memories properly, and will only be a hindrance to us... and Pain, our most important member in the entire organisation... has no idea who we are or what the Akatsuki is anymore... so, it is my decision, as second-in-command, to disband the Akatsuki. This organisation will no longer exist."
A/N Yeah... This is why there will be a sequal... *nervous laugh*. Dont kill me!
