A/N-This is the last one-shot…the idea for this story was given to me by Supershark1 who suggested I put something with Itachi's P.O.V of his final moments…and here it is. Thanks to all those who reviewed 'Pieces of an Altered Reality'.

Summary-Itachi's P.O.V of his final few moments as he sits trapped and dying.

Fading

Disclaimer-I don't own Naruto.

OoOoOo

I guess it's best this way. I mean I always knew that he would be the one to kill me…Sasuke that is. That's why I let him live.

But I certainly didn't intend to die after being beaten to a bloody pulp by angry parents. Although, after that Hyuuga girl went I didn't really feel anything…I was too far gone in pain…

However, that punch to that area…certainly brought me back to the living…at that point I made a mental note to never tick off the woman with super strength again.

And then I remember that I probably won't make it through this ordeal alive. If the Yourusashi doesn't take my life…Sasuke will.

And now that's what happens. I'm a bloody writhing mass in a mass of writhing sand. I'm one less an arm thanks to Mika and I doubt, if I survive this that I will ever look the same or be able to have children.

And then he shows me the kunai. The engraved one that I used to kill our parents…

And I understand he will now use to kill me.

As he stabs me with a kunai that was once mine, I can feel my life draining away…and the world around me is fading to black.

The way it always has. When I was younger, when I killed my family, that's when I first started fading…for the longest time I was stuck in a sort of grey zone…neither light nor dark. But that is over now. As my life ebbs away it grows darker and I fade…

Fade to black…

And finally the fading is done. The pain that the parents who I have attacked have bestowed upon me finally vanishes and the world around me goes dark…

Uchiha Itachi has faded from this world.

A/N-Rather short and to the point…Hope you guys enjoyed…
