I'm a wife, a mother then a kunoichi…it seems I am—I was— in that order.

Now, I'm a nin, a mother…a widow.

I can't even mourn. Not yet.

For Konoha, for my son, I have to tell myself I'm whole.

I could not break apart…when it's all over maybe. But not yet.

For all the times you consider me troublesome…this one time, Shikaku, I don't want to trouble you.

So rest well, my heart.

I will live to be old.

I will see our grandchildren.

I will see Konoha rebuild then I will join you.

I love you.

Until then.
