Prompt: "Let me talk to her."

"Let me talk to her," Kakashi says and something in his expression must have given away his feelings because the glare in Ino's blue eyes softens a tiny smidgen.

"It won't do you any good," the blonde says, her voice almost—gentle.

He takes a deep breath and nods. "I know," he says. "I still… please, let me talk to her."

Ino judges him coolly and steps away from the door. "Touch none of the equipment," she warns. "You'll kill her."

He nods and steps inside.

Sakura rests on a bed, looking like she's only asleep.

This is his fault.
