My dearest Madara-nii,

I know where this will all lead.

It hurts to think about, yes, but at the same time, I'm surprisingly calm about it.

I know you will win the war. You and Hashirama, together you are invincible. And you also have my eyes. I don't mind being blind, I never did. It was strange at first, and terrifying a bit scary, but I knew you were seeing the future for me, so I didn't really mind.

That's why I don't mind what I know will happen to me either.

You'll win the war, and I won't be there to celebrate it.

But it's okay, because you see it for me with my eyes, and you have Hashirama, and even Mito-san. I'm glad you finally trust her; she is the kindest woman I've ever met - excluding Mother, of course, but Mother would always be special to us.

But of course you don't need me to tell you how kind Mito-san is; you've already experienced it for yourself.

The purpose of this letter is to tell you I really don't mind too much. Of course, I will miss you terribly, and there's Tobirama - I don't want to break his heart by leaving him behind - but I honestly have no chance don't see too much of a chance of me living through this war. Of course, I'm not saying I won't do everything within my power to stay alive, but without my eyes, I'm useless not what I used to be. I tried as hard as I could, but I was always aware that it wouldn't be the same. I always wanted to be like you, aniki.

Please, don't cry too much, okay? I know you won't let anyone see your tears - well, maybe Hashirama -, but I know you are going to cry, despite always saying how Uchiha don't show weakness; you were my aniki after all, and I know you better than anyone.

Please, nii-sama, carry on for me, win the war, and don't take it all out on Hashirama; he's strong, and he loves you to world's end, but even he can break if you want to break him too much. Please, just be happy for me, alright? That's all I'm asking for.

Oh, and please tell Tobirama I'll love him forever.

I'll put this letter on your table under a genjutsu that'll dissolve when I die.



your otouto
