i said i'd have it last monday, and ended up doing it a week later.



i'm pretty damn busy.

you know.

i'm gonna stop talking now because...well, you're sick of me right?

"They're inside."

"It doesn't matter. We have what we want."

Orochimaru shook his head in disagreement. "What if they find them? They'll find out the truth and then everything will be destroyed."

Sephiroth glared at him. "Like I said, it doesn't matter."



Rei and Naruto stared in amazement at the person in front of them. The person they had taken to be gone was standing right there. But there was something different about Sora.

"Where've you been?" Naruto said, happy to see his friend was alright.

Sora glared. "I said, who are you and what are you doing here?" He responded coldly.

"What's wrong with you?" The grin was fading into a frown on Naruto's face.

"G-get away f-from me..." He managed to say before falling to the ground on his knees, with his hands on his head. Black marks spreading from his neck covered the right side of Sora's face in a matter of seconds.

"He's Orochimaru's..."Rei whispered to Naruto, who clenched his fists in anger.

Sora lifted his head up to look at the both of them. "Didn't you hear me? Get away!"

"Naruto, hold him down." Rei said to him. "I'm going to try to seal his curse mark."

"His what?" He said suprised.

"Curse mark."

"But," Naruto started. "Why would Sora have a curse mark?"

"Orochimaru must want him."

Naruto made a face.

"Not like that you pervert!" Rei shouted. "Seriously, you should stop hanging around Jiraiya so much..." She added in a whisper. "Anyway, hold Sora down."

"I don't need to, he passed out on the floor." Naruto was right. Sora was lying motionless in front of them.


Kairi was screaming in agony. She was thrashing violently on the floor in front of the three dark figures watching her with an interest. "What do you think?" Asked Orochimaru to the other two watching.

"What if her memories come back?" Sephiroth questioned.

"I took care of that." Another figure appeared behind them.

"Kabuto erased her memories so there's no reason to be worried about something so meaningless as that." Orochimaru answered.

"Do you think she'll really be able to kill them all?" Sesshomaru said, turning to the sannin. Orochimaru smirked. "With the curse mark I put on her, she will."


Sora sat up after putting his hand to where the skin on his neck was burning.

"Why'd you do it?" Rei demanded when she saw he was awake.

"Wh-what do you mean?" Sora responded.

"You let him bite you, didn't you?" She questioned.

Sora didn't answer, but stared down at the floor instead. Naruto, who didn't get what was going on, looked from Rei to Sora and back. "What's going on?!" He finally shouted after a moment of dead silence.

"Don't you get it? Sora let Orochimaru bite him!" Rei yelled at him.


"Not like that...you do know Jiraiya killed your innocence, right?"

"Yeah, I know..."

Rei turned her attention back to Sora. "Why?"

"Because," Sora started but then mumbled the rest of the sentence so Naruto and Rei didn't hear the rest. "What?" They both said.

"Because!" Sora yelled. "Because...he wanted Riku."

A/n: that's a good place to leave it at!

i hate cliffhangers too.
