The Night of the Nightmare

The moon shone bright over the still lake. At the edge of said lake sat a 10 year-old girl. She had jet black hair, and onyx eyes. She kept her hair in a messy bun, and wore a headband wrapped around her head. (A/N: thus the name headband no?) Her name is Uchiha Kari. She's a Jonin of Konoha. She was just relaxing at the lake after a long mission. She heard rustling from the tree behind her. Two boys jumped down from it. "Hello Axel, Demnyx." said Kari. The redhead smirked. It always amused him how she knew who was around her. "What's up Angel?" he asked. She twitched at the saying of her nickname. "You know that only Sensei can call me that Flame!" she said, her frown deepening. "Sorry Kari. But…What are you doing here anyways?" The 11 year-old Jonin stared at his comrade. She was usually home bugging her brothers by now. Kari stayed quiet. The 10 year-old boy next to axel finally spoke up," Shouldn't you be home by now? We usually have to beg your father to let you out at this time. It's almost 10:00." Kari's eyes widened. "It's already 10? Why didn't you tell me sooner Demnyx?" she said while grabbing her art pad. Before Demnyx could answer, she was gone…

About ten minutes later, she arrived just outside the Uchiha District. She froze. Something's wrong. She thought ,That scent…Is that nii-san's? It can't be…It's generating too much bloodlust…Unless… She ran into the District. As she rounded the corner,she froze once more. She saw the remains of a massacre. Her suspicions were proven. She concentrated her thoughts and focus on finding her younger brother. Itachi, if you hurt a hair on his head I will kill you myself. She thought as she found her younger brother's scent, running from her home. I've got to hurry…

When she found her brothers, Itachi had just finished knocking Sasuke out. "Itachi what the hell have you done?" she asked, taking out a kunai. "It's quite obvious what I have done, little sister. I have just finished off the last of our clan." Itachi answered, a smirk playing at his lips. Tears worked their way to the edges of Kari's eyes. "Why? How could you do something like this?" Itachi frowned. His eyes became dark and distant. "Little sister, I…I didn't mean to kill off the clan. Just our father." "Well, why? What did our father do to deserve death?" Kari had hated their father as well. He had planned to use his children as tools for taking over the village. But all the same, he was still their father. Itachi stared at her, hoping she would withdraw her question. When she didn't, he sighed" Kari…father…father killed mother. He killed her and planned on killing Sasuke. When I asked for a reason, he said he wanted to rid the world of the weak. I,,,I couldn't help it…I snapped. Before I knew it, his blood was all over my blade. Then Yugiru-san came. When he saw the scene in front of him, he instinctually attacked. A few seconds passed and more blood was shed. After that, my mind went blank. When I came to, Sasuke started yelling at the site of mother and father and the rest of clan dead. Even after I tried to explain, he tried to attack…I was hoping you would take care of him. I have to leave this place… The Anbus are coming to destroy me…" Kari stared at her brother in disbelief. Her mind was trying to process all the information that had just spilled into her brained. "Kari, I really have to go. Please take care of yourself and Sasuke." Itachi said, hugging her. Kari felt the tears falling from her eyes, "Nii-san, I swear that I will get you back into the village. Just…just don't die!!" He chuckled, then picked up his katana and disappeared with the next breeze…
