How to tell Itami

My three years of training have been payed of well. I am an expert in all types of ninjutsu, genjutsu and taijutsu. In other words, I'm the perfect weapon. I've also mastered my Kekkei Genkai. Weapons and swordplay are also part of my specialties. I have a strict schedule that I usually stick to day in day out. I wake up get ready then meet Itachi out near the lake for genjutsu and fire style training. After that, I stay there and wait for Kisame to come and teach me water style and sword play. Between the hours 11am and 1pm everyone is busy so I annoy the life out of them, specifically my best friend, Hidan. I then meet with Sasori near the rocks for puppeteering lessons after which I stay for Deidara to come teach me explosions and things of that nature. I used to be taught by Kakuzu after that but it was replaced by weapons with Hidan because Kakuzu complained that I was slowing him down too much with his bounties so I dropped out of the bounty business. Once Hidan has run off to do his rituals, Zetsu comes and teaches me chakra control for a bit then Tobi would come with a leash and say 'walkies Mr. Zetsu,' and they'd be off. I would then eat dinner with the whole of Akatsuki then I get trained in paper jutsu by mum but we are now just making our own jutsu and sharing so our time gets cut short. Lastly, father will come out of his office and teach me whatever it is he wants. Kabuto comes every second weekend to teach me medical ninjutsu in Hidan's time slot as well. Tobi used to teach me after Zetsu but he taught me all his jutsu already. Even though it's a strict schedule, I'm the only one who knows it so I sneak between lessons to annoy everyone.

Recently, this girl joined Akatsuki but apparently she's been in Akatsuki for years. Her name is Eienni. She and Hidan are always fighting because their religions crash immensely. All they do is yell at each other curses and religious things I barely understand. Everyone usually just leaves the room. She's ok I guess.

Over the years, I've changed a lot. Mainly, it's just my appearance. I now have two piercings in each ear, one on the left side of my nose, one under my lip and one on my right eyebrow. If anyone asks, dad forced me *shifty eyes*. I also wear different kinds of a-frame dresses now. My favourite one is a strapless dress with a black bottom that goes out with a pink and black vertical striped top and the skirt starts at my belly button and stops at half my thigh. I usually wear my black platform heels with it. Life has changed a lot but it's still a ton of fun.

I was lying on my bed waiting for the bomber and puppet to return from their mission. Sasori and Deidara left on the mission a week ago, dad says they should be back soon but that's not what I'm worried about. The mission was to capture and extract the one tailed beast. When dad told me taking the beast would kill the jinjuriki I pleaded with him to find another way. I begged that they not kill Gaara but, father told me it was the only way. I was forced to agree with this no matter how much I wished Gaara life. Sasori and Deidara will be home soon and I will tease the life out of that blonde. I can't tease the puppet master because, if I were to try, he would make me clean his puppets during our whole training period.

I heard the door of the entrance bang open and I ran to it. Standing in the door way was Deidara. I raised an eyebrow at the fact Sasori wasn't there.

"What, got annoyed with Sasori's slowness in Hiruko so you left him?" I teased. He gave me a look I couldn't quite decipher and walked off.

Ok, so he doesn't want to play today. That's alright, I'll just find Hidan.

I walked into the lounge room to find Hidan then instantly walked out.

DAMN! They're at it again!

I leaned against the hallway wall and sighed.

"What's wrong with you?" an all too familiar voice came.

"Grandpa Kuzu!" I yelled and hugged him as if I barely ever see him. The stitched Nin hugged back.

"What's up kiddo?" he asked. I pushed away from him.

"Firstly Kakuzu, I'm sixteen now, you can't be calling me 'kiddo', secondly, no one wants to play with me," I counted the first one on my finger then crossed my arms and pouted for the second.

"Is that so? Sasori and Deidara back yet?" he questioned. I thought about it.

"Well, yes and no. The blonde is here, the puppet isn't," I answered. He nodded.

"I see. Come on; wanna help me count my money? Actually, forget that, I don't want you anywhere NEAR my money," the money whore stated then walked off.

I slumped on the floor in boredom.

What now? I'm so bored. I know I'll go annoy the blonde even though he doesn't want me to!

I jumped up and ran to the puppet and bombers room. I opened the door without knocking like I always do to the blonde when Sasori isn't in the room. I opened it a crack and I saw the blonde crying.

What the hell?

I closed the door and walked into the lounge room to yell a Hidan. When I got there, he and Eienni were just sitting on the couch opposite each other.

"Oy fucker," I called to Hidan. He looked up at me.

"What the fuck do you want bitch?" he asked.

"What the hell is up with everyone?" I quizzed him. He shook his head.

"Ask Kakuzu, he's the one who told us," he instructed me. I groaned and headed to Kakuzu and Hidan's room.

I slammed open the door.

"OY KAKUZU! What the hell is up with everyone?" I asked. He looked up from his money.

"Ask either Deidara or Konan. I'm not telling," he answered. I growled and headed to the blonde. I opened the door to Deidara and Sasori's room.

"What the hell is up with everyone and why won't anyone tell me?!" I yelled. He looked at me then started crying again.

Oh for crying out loud!

I turned went to father's office. I knocked on the door and I heard mum tell me to come in. I opened it and walked to her desk.

"What's up with everyone and why won't anyone tell me?" I questioned her. She furrowed her eyebrows.

"Pein!" Konan called for her husband. He came out from the ledge.

"Yes?" he responded. Konan looked over her shoulder to Pein.

"I think we ought to tell her," Konan informed. He nodded his head.

"I see. Do you want to or do you want me to?" father asked.

"Can't we both tell her?" Konan pleaded.

"Tell me what?" I questioned as I crossed my arms over my chest. They sighed.

"Sasori has DIA," Pein explained. I furrowed my eyebrows.

"W-what does that mean?" I asked.

"It means that he was killed in battle, sweetie," Konan explained. Pein turned and headed back to his ledge. I followed him out and sat next to him. He placed an arm around me and I rested my head on his shoulder. We watched the village.

"What's going to happen now?" I asked.

"Well, we got the one tailed beast and Tobi needs a partner so, Tobi will go with Deidara and Akatsuki will function normally," Pein explained. I shook my head.

"You can't just replace Sasori," I replied glumly. Father kissed my forehead.

"I want to go out for a while, can I?" I asked. He hugged me.

"Of course," he answered. I stood up and left the hide out.

This is terribleā€¦ and father doesn't even seem to care about Sasori's death.
