And I'm back.
Now first things first, answering a couple of reviews:
One particular review mentioned that keeping a secret from Miya would a LOT easier than keeping it from Shikamaru... all I want to say about that is that you're right, however Naruto doesn't know exactly how smart she is so he plans on treating her like he would Shikamaru.
Someone else asked why Naruto hasn't used Kage Bunshin to gain more intel on MBI and what's happening in the city... the fact is that he HAS been using Kage Bunshin to try and collect information from MBI however he lacks the basics to understand what the scientists are talking about and with no skill in hacking he can't access the files necessary to understand what they're doing. As for what's happening in the city itself... the fact is that he simply doesn't care about the super powered aliens running about like headless chickens trying to find mates, without anyone to cover their tracks he decided that there was simply too great a risk if he got close to them.
Some other people have asked about Uzume, I'll just put her situation in points:
1) No, right now she hasn't been winged
2) No she will not be winged by Naruto, I personally consider sexuality an important part of a character, whether they be heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual and I personally don't like changing that part of them.
Lastly, I have decided on four sekirei that will end up being winged by Naruto however if you want, you can send me suggestions though whether or not I decide to go with them depends on if I feel they could work with this version of Naruto.
Now that that is out of the way, let's get on with the show.
"So, what do you plan on doing Naru-tan?" Matsu asked as she lay on the floor of Naruto's bedroom, her stomach pressing against the ground as she held her head up with the palms of her hands.
"Well… the first thing I was planning on doing was having our wedding night," he said with a toothy grin, earning a small laugh off the redhead.
"I don't think Miya-tan would be happy about that," the bespectacled alien said with a soft smile, earning a toothy grin off the blond.
"So? Miya herself admitted that we're basically married and there is nothing indecent or lewd with a married couple having fun in the bedroom," the spiky haired teen said with a beatific smile, earning a small laugh off his
Sekirei, "besides… if we're quiet enough then she'll need to be peeping to know we're doing anything."
Matsu found herself blinking in shock at the blondes statement, the mere thought of accusing Miya of peeping was along the same lines of trying to teach a Tyrannosaurus Rex not to eat people by smacking its snout… probably suicide.
"B-but accusing Miya-tan of doing something like that is suicide!" the older of the two said in shock, earning a shrug off the blond.
"Meh, I've faced scarier things than Miya-chan," and that was definitely true, the prospect of infiltrating Iwagakure for the sole purpose of killing their Kage was a hell of a lot riskier than simply accusing Miya of being a peeping pervert.
"Uzume-tan was right, you have balls of steel," the hacker said with a small giggle escaping her lips.
"Well then, are you ready to find out just how hard they are?" the devilish grin that adorned his face as he made his question made it clear he was expecting only one answer from the redhead.
"Hehe… I guess I'll just have to get ready to receive your hot, sticky, DNA," while her words may have left the impression of hesitance, the fact was that the perverted grin, chuckle and the light blush told a completely different story.
Naruto wasn't planning on disappointing the redheaded pervert.
"And what do you two think you're doing?" came a stern call as the door opened, revealing Miya with the dark aura once again surrounding her and making Matsu suddenly lose all thoughts of bedding the blond as she instead focused on escaping the slaughter that was sure to come.
"Hello Debakame(1)-chan," the ANBU said with a smile, making Miya stall for a couple of seconds before her murderous intent returned at full power as Matsu gaped at him.
"What… did… you… call… me?" the sheer anger in the purple haired aliens voice at his new name for her was clear to even the densest of people (well, except a few characters he had seen in those anime things but they were just plain stupid).
"I called you Debakame-chan because you obviously are one if you are trying to stop us already," the whiskered teen said with a smile, "after all, we weren't making any noise yet and you've already jumped in to stop us… despite the fact you yourself admitted that we're practically married and a husband and wife having intercourse in their room isn't indecent."
Miya found herself scowling as the blond basically made her out to be the pervert despite knowing full well that she was the only one in the room that wasn't one.
"Perhaps, but such acts are still prohibited in Izumo Inn," she stated with a strained smile as she tried to keep herself from bifurcating the irritating blond.
"Really?" Naruto sounded incredibly sceptical about that fact before something clicked in the back of his mind, "say… Matsu, did you know Takehito-san?"
"Leave Takehito out of this," the narrowing of Miya's eyes made it clear that she wasn't happy with the blonds line of enquiry.
"Now now, I just wanted to know if he was a nice guy," the whiskered blond asked calmly, earning a suspicious glare off the blond.
"Well, he was a kind person… unless Seo-tan was involved, then he was a monster," Matsu stated as calmly as she could manage with Miya's intent filling the room.
"So was he a romantic?" Naruto asked calmly, earning a nod off the landlady who was beginning to wonder exactly where the blond was going.
"Yes, he was one of the kindest and most romantic people I have ever met," the purple haired alien stated calmly.
"I see…" the ninja said with his hand caressing his chin and a knowing smirk gracing his lips, "so that explains it."
"What do you mean Uzumaki-kun?" the oldest in the room said with a sweet smile.
"You're a virgin," he made his conclusion sound like a fact, making Matsu gape as Miya found herself freeze in disbelief at his conclusion, "that's the reason you forbid relations in this house, because you can't stand the thought that such acts are going on under the same roof you never had sex with your husband under."
Miya for her part simply didn't know how to respond to his statement, after all, no one had ever accused her of such a thing before and it had completely caught her off guard.
Though she quickly decided on drawing her sword and placing it to the one part of his body she was certain he wouldn't want it to be placed.
"Miya-chan… if you stab me there then I won't be able to take your virginity," Naruto deadpanned towards her as he chose to ignore the sword currently pressed against his groin.
"That's the whole point," she said with a smug grin on her face at finally getting control of the situation.
"M-M-M-M-M-Miya-tan! Please don't stab him there!" Matsu started pleading for his manhood, she wanted to experience it at least a few (hundred) times before he lost it because Miya was being a prude.
"Relax Matsu-chan," the whiskered blond said with an easy grin, "it's obvious she's just Tsun-ing towards me and pretty sure she'll be all dere-dere with me!"
And with that, Miya stabbed.
"Wow Miya-chan… your aim sucks," the purple haired beauty couldn't believe it, somehow she had actually missed him… she didn't know how, she had been looking at her blade and target throughout the attempt to castrate him and she hadn't seen anything to indicate he had move at all… and she was certain she hadn't been moved either… she could only blink in shock as she found herself unable to comprehend what had happened.
Naruto however was in a completely different situation, he hadn't expected her to actually try stabbing him in the groin but a little killing intent directed at the woman had made her instincts kick in and make her avoid striking the predator that would easily tear her head off.
Of course she wouldn't understand what had happened or how she had missed but the end result was that he wouldn't have to regenerate his reproductive organs anytime soon.
Miya for her part couldn't bring herself to comprehend the strangeness of the situation, she knew she was supposed to have hit the part that made the teen a boy but she had somehow missed despite stabbing forward at near point blank range.
But he hadn't moved, she noted that her aim had indeed changed but she hadn't felt anything redirect her strike… all she remembered was a feeling she couldn't say she had ever felt before, she didn't know what it was but it had made her avoid impaling the blue eyed teen.
Matsu was a different story altogether, while she couldn't believe Miya had just missed, she had felt the intent herself and unlike Miya, she could recognise the feeling, after all, she felt it whenever she faced number zero four… she knew that for an instant, she hadn't been scared for her ashikabi… she had been scared of him.
The mere fact that such a feeling appeared in her mind, the fact her instincts told her to run as far away from him at that moment made it quite clear to her, there was definitely something wrong with the teen called Uzumaki Naruto.
"Hey… Miya-chan? Are you alright?" Naruto's voice cut through her musings as she noted that Miya seemed completely out of it, obviously trying to come to grips with the fact she had missed despite everything indicating she should've hit.
"U-uh? I… I am uncertain, perhaps I should go and see a doctor," she said with a strained smile as she tried to regain her composure.
"Oh? Am I finally getting to see your dere-dere side?" Miya had to stop herself from gritting her teeth, she wanted nothing more than to make the blond suffer for his accusations but she didn't want to see if she would miss again, the mere fact she missed once was bad enough after all.
"I am not being dere-dere," she said with obvious annoyance in her tone, "but illicit activities are forbidden in this house."
"Because you're jealous you didn't get any?" and once again Miya found her self control drop as she once again moved to stab the blond, only to once again feel that strange emotion as her body moved on its own to avoid stabbing her tenant.
"W-why? Why can't I stab you?" she asked as a cold sweat coalesced on her forehead.
"Huh? You can't stab me?" Naruto asked innocently, knowing full well why she couldn't, "maybe you just love me too much."
Miya knew he was wrong, she knew what love felt like, she had loved Takehito after all, being with him was like being complete, it was the greatest feeling she had ever experienced… the one she was feeling when she tried to stab the blond was easily the worst feeling she had ever experienced and only appeared when she made her thrust.
It felt like she was going to die.
It felt like he was going to kill her.
And with that thought, she finally realised what it was she was feeling… she was scared of him.
Somehow he was capable of making her feel such a deep seated fear, one so great that she couldn't even bring herself to attack him… it was preposterous, the mere thought that a human was capable of making her, the strongest of the seikirei feel so insignificant that she simply couldn't stop herself from coming to the conclusion that she would die if she continued her attack.
Matsu however was simply staring as she once again felt a sense of absolute terror directed towards her ashikabi, it was simply too great and she knew from Miya's expression that she had come to the realisation of exactly what the feeling she was getting off the blond was.
But that only made things even worse, if Miya realised what she was feeling from the unassuming blond then that meant that the feeling of fear had to be so great that she actually attributed it to dying… and that meant there was something seriously wrong with her ashikabi.
"I… I have to go," and with that last statement, the normally composed landlady left the room, completely defeated by the blonds intent.
"N-Naruto-sama," Matsu started talking after a few minutes, catching the blond slightly off guard by the way she was addressing him.
"Yeah Matsu-chan?" he asked lightly despite the serious gaze that was boring into him.
"What was that?" she decided to ask straight out.
"What was what?" he asked despite knowing exactly what she was talking about.
"What was it that made me so scared of you?" she specified, earning a light grin off the teen.
"Nothing much," his response simply made her eyes narrow as she noted that he knew exactly what it was that she felt.
"Naruto-sama… please explain this to me," she asked him seriously, earning a soft smile off the blond.
"Alright then, do you know how if you're being watched you'll get this feeling that someone is watching you?" he asked her, earning a nod off the redhead, "that is because the person watching you is directing 'observational intent' towards you and you naturally pick up on that intent."
Matsu could only blink at his explanation but decided to hold off on her questions until he finished his explanation.
"Nearly every action possesses intent behind it and a person unconsciously reads that intent, Miya herself is quite adept at using murderous intent, it is what forms her mask after all," the brain type sekirei blinked in surprise at the fact her ashikabi seemed to understand exactly how Miya's mask worked but kept quiet anyway, "what you felt however was a product of self hypnosis."
"You see, I'm quite adept at hypnotising myself to take on different mindsets and that can change the type of intent I emit, normally I've hypnotised myself into the only mindset that completely neutralises any intent I may normally emit, that is actually my natural state now," the bespectacled alien could only blink at his statement about not producing any intent and almost asked a question about it but caught herself before doing so, letting him explain it to her could easily tell her exactly how that worked, "but when I change my mindset to a state where I can produce intent… well, I produce a lot of it."
Naruto finally finished his explanation with a soft smile, upon which Matsu waited for him to continue before noting that he wasn't making any attempt to further explain what he had done.
"And what sort of mindset did you put yourself into when Miya-chan attacked you?" she finally asked, hoping to find out why she felt such fear towards him.
"I will kill you."
The way he said that sentence without any hint of hesitation or change in tone made one thing clear to the second oldest sekirei… that her ashikabi was most certainly not an innocent civilian.
"Naruto-sama… are you a serial killer?" she found her heart beating quicker at the prospect of being winged by someone that killed others for self satisfaction.
"That depends on how you define serial killer," he said calmly, making her eyes go wide at the fact he didn't deny it straight off the bat.
"Someone who kills for self satisfaction," she decided to specify, earning a soft smile off the blond.
"Then I'm not a serial killer," his words made the redhead blink, "I get no satisfaction from the act of killing."
Matsu could only stare at him as she processed the fact that he had practically just admitted that he had blood on his hands, "how many people have you killed?"
Naruto for his part took a few seconds to estimate the number of people that had died because of his actions or at least those that were killed by the direct effects of his actions, given how his assassination of the Sandaime Tsuchikage had paved the way for the Yondaime who didn't share the Sandaime's caution, it could be argued that everyone who died in the fourth shinobi war died because of him.
"A couple of hundred," he immediately noticed Matsu give him a serious look before she opened her mouth and made what she thought was the obvious conclusion.
"You were raised to kill, a child soldier," Naruto had to give her props for instantly coming to that conclusion, he was pretty sure that most people in this world would assume he was some mass murdering psychopath after mentioning the sheer number of lives he had ended.
"Specialized in assassination and demolitions," he admitted with a small smile that he was pretty sure looked sad to others.
"So that's why you can be so calm when facing Miya… you've already faced death haven't you?" it was clear to the blond that the redhead was figuring out quite a bit of his history from the small amount of information he supplied to her, not that it really mattered, since she had practically sworn lifelong allegiance to him she could be trusted with that much at least.
He wouldn't trust her with the full truth but he would trust her with enough of it to let him make use of her abilities.
"So these 'friends' you work for… how much do they know about you?" she asked him seriously, wanting to make sure she knew exactly what she was now involved in.
"Only my codename and my level of skill," he told her calmly, earning a nod of acceptance from the hacker.
"And how do they contact you?" she continued, earning a small grin from the blond.
"They don't," he could tell she found his answer rather ominous, honestly it was very ominous and so he decided to elaborate, "I have systems in place that let me know when they need something done."
"And can I assume that these systems are relatively difficult to maintain?" the glasses wearing sekirei asked him calmly, earning a nod of agreement off the blond. Despite his chakra capacity, he did have problems keeping his bunshin active and doing nothing but watching his clients all the time, sure it may have been convenient but it was anything but relaxing, "I take it I can assume that you have no difficulties as far as finance go correct?"
"I currently have somewhere in the region of twenty to twenty five billion yen," Matsu gave a curt nod before blinking a couple of times and then openly gaping at him.
"T-t-t-t-twenty to twenty five billion yen!" the sheer shock he could see on her features almost made him laugh, however he decided to add fuel to the fire instead.
"Well to be fair, about half of it came from that one job a few weeks ago," he muttered as he looked to the side, making her look at him as if she had never seen him before.
"What sort of job pays ten billion yen?!" she asked in disbelief, making him cough into his hand and look away.
"Killing the American secretary of defence," he noted with mild amusement that her eyes nearly fell out their sockets upon hearing him say that.
"Wait.. are you being serious? Or are you just screwing with me like you screw with Miya?" the redhead asked suspiciously, earning a soft smile off the blond.
"I'm being serious… though I'll admit, if I had you back then the mission would've been so much easier," the spiky haired teen told her with a smile.
"And how would it have been easier if you had me back then?" she decided to question him, earning a happy smile off the person she had just found out was one of the world's most wanted criminals.
"Because then I'd have been able to get Intel before starting the mission," the way he made his statement seem normal caught the hacker off guard, however when she finally realised exactly what he had just told her, she openly gaped at him.
"You mean to tell me… that you assassinated the American Secretary of Defence without even knowing what you were doing?" she honestly couldn't believe him, the mere thought of somebody even attempting something like that was ludicrous.
"Hey, I resent that," the blue eyed ninja said with a pout, "I knew exactly what I was doing… I just didn't necessarily know exactly where I was going… or the security I was facing."
"You're insane," she said as she removed her glasses and dragged her hand down her face.
"Clinically… yes," the super assassin admitted with a shrug, earning a small laugh off the sekirei as she shook her head and looked at him with an expression of amusement.
"You know… I think being your sekirei is going to be fun," she said with a smile.
"So… what were you inquiring about my financial status for?" he asked remembering exactly what had led them onto the topic of his ten billion yen hit.
"Ah, yes, Matsu almost forgot about that," Naruto absently noticed that she had returned to her more childish demeanour now that the subject about his jobs was over, "tomorrow can Naru-tan buy a cell phone?"
"No," he made his statement perfectly clear, he knew that cell phones were too easy to trace and he had no intention of giving himself away because of something like that.
"I'm not asking you to use it right away, after all, I intend on heavily modifying whatever model you buy before anything else," she stated with a grin on her lips.
"Heavily modify? How heavily and in what ways?" he proceeded to ask her with narrowed eyes.
"Well… the first point of call is making it unaffiliated with any single network, then there is the matter of installing a process that can hide its signal while it accesses the networks, create a unique number for the phone and remove any GPS signals it might possess," she started listing off her adjustments she was planning on performing on the mobile while Naruto simply listened and contemplated what she was saying, "well, the basic gist is that I want to make the phone untraceable."
Naruto close his eyes as he contemplated the option she was giving him, on one hand it would give him a new method of contacting his employers which could in turn make his job easier than before, however it also ran risks towards his anonymity.
"Matsu," the redhead almost hitched her breath at the fact he wasn't adding the usual suffix to her name, "how certain are you that you can make the phone untraceable?"
"The chances of me failing to make it untraceable are so small they are negligible," the absolute certainty in her voice as she made her statement was what decided it for the blond.
"Alright, I'll get a phone, are there any requirements for you to make your modifications?" he asked her calmly, earning a shake of her head.
"No, there aren't requirements but it would be much easier to modify a smart phone since they can run advanced programs far more easily than older styles," she explained to him, earning another firm nod off the blond.
"Alright, then I'll pick one up tomorrow, it'll be pay as you go so I won't have to sign any sort of contract for it," he informed her calmly, earning a smile off the redhead.
"Yeah, that's fine, honestly if you get me a smart phone with a few gigs of internal storage then you won't even need a sim card," she told him, earning a raised eyebrow from the blond, "basically one of the programs I will be writing will bypass the sim and make it unnecessary."
"I see," and honestly he did, he had done a bit of research on the matter of mobile phones and the fact that the sim card could be tracked even if the phone was turned off was one of the main things that put him off buying a phone before but if Matsu could make it so that problem didn't exist then he would trust her… at least until she gave him proof that she was lying to him.
If that turned out to be the case he would kill her and everyone else in Izumo Inn himself.
He was if anything, rather thorough when he cleaned up any messes he left.
Not that he normally left any messes outside of corpses and demolished buildings.
However now it was time to focus on one question that had been bugging him ever since he winged her earlier that night.
"Matsu, what is it that makes an ashikabi an ashikabi?" he asked seriously, making her blink several times at his sudden change in questioning.
"Well that would be the ashikabi gene," she stated as if it was obvious.
"But what is the ashikabi gene?" his question seemed to make the redhead frown as she tried to figure out exactly why he was asking something like that.
"The ashikabi gene is the gene that makes an animal and sekirei genetically compatible with each other," she decided to explain, "the fact is that we sekirei came to Earth purely because there were ashikabi that were similar enough to us already here."
Naruto frowned at that statement, the ashikabi were already here before the sekirei arrived… but more importantly, "Matsu, you said 'ashikabi that were similar enough to us', what do you mean by that?"
"Well any species can develop the ashikabi gene but you can probably guess that a sekirei attempting to mate with a fruit fly simply isn't going to happen," she decided to explain to him, making his eyes widen as he finally figured out exactly what the ashikabi gene did.
"I see… so humans and sekirei are genetically incompatible normally but the ashikabi gene acts as an intermediate and allows for the two to become genetically compatible," he stated and received a nod off the redhead he had bound himself to, "but where does the winging ritual come into play?"
"The ashikabi gene isn't a standalone strand of genetic material, it is part of the ashikabi's regular genetic information," she told him calmly, "and everyone has a different genetic setup. The fact is that the reason a sekirei can only produce children for a single human is because they need their own DNA adjusted to… break apart the DNA of their ashikabi in order to gain access to the gene to act as an intermediate step."
"So they break apart the DNA of their ashikabi in order to mate with them?" seeing her nod he let out a sigh before asking another important question as far as he was concerned, "and the reason you produce wings of light is?"
"Well the sekirei's body always breaks down that part of their ashikabi's genetic structure the way that is done produces lots of energy that tends to get emitted as light… though our bodies do tend to store a certain quantity based on personal limits," she gave the explanation, earning narrowed eyes off the whiskered ANBU.
"If that's the case then kissing you should produce the same effects but also give you an extra store of power to draw from right?" he asked her after dissecting her statement.
"Yes, we call that state, Norito, where we have extra energy with which to use our psychic powers," she stated, once again earning narrowed eyes off the blond.
"Psychic powers? Are you telling me you can read minds?" he asked, he hadn't sensed her attempting to break the barriers in his mind that Inoichi had taught him, so if she could then she was a very subtle invader.
"Unfortunately no, a sekirei's psychic power is more along the lines of kinesis, though we can synchronise with our ashikabi and the other sekirei winged to them," she informed him calmly, "my own power is best described as technokinesis, the manipulation of technology… well, data anyway."
Naruto simply nodded, he had already expected as much from the fact that she had created an entire antivirus program in such a ludicrously short time, something that shouldn't be possible without a power like that.
"You don't seem particularly impressed," she stated with a downcast expression, earning a light smile off the spiky haired teen.
"Oh I am impressed, however the fact is that I've already witnessed you do things with a computer that you shouldn't be capable of without a power like that… so the surprise simply isn't there right now," he informed her calmly, earning a sigh off the woman.
"So Naru-tan is impressed… then will Naru-tan give Matsu her wedding night?" she asked with a perverted grin, earning a matching grin off her ashikabi.
"I was planning on anyway," and with that he moved towards the redhead, his intentions clear.

Miya couldn't stop herself from staring at the floor of Takehito's shrine as she tried to figure out what had happened to her.
Why had a human who didn't look like they were even out of puberty yet scare her so much when she attacked him? It didn't make sense no matter how hard she tried to think on it.
He should've been scared of her but he wasn't.
She remembered the first time she had seen Takehito use his mask, it had shocked her at the very least but Naruto seemed completely immune to the apparition no matter what level she put it at.
And yet he didn't even need to glare to scare her.
She didn't know how the boy could incite that complete certainty that she would die if she attacked him but it had stopped her twice… even if her mind said she would be fine, she knew that her body would attempt to keep itself active until a new sekirei queen was chosen, no matter what. That in itself was a good thing, after all, if she died then Kouten would activate and everything with traces of a sekirei tama would be deactivated… including all the descendents of the previous sekirei that landed… which would mean quite a large percentage of the human race.
The one thing that this situation made clear to her however… was that Uzumaki Naruto was probably not as nice and carefree as he made himself out to be.
Sure he had decided to start paying for Matsu's room as well, increasing her monthly income from rent from fifty thousand yen to one hundred thousand yen, which meant she wouldn't have to dig into the savings Takehito left aside for her but now she wasn't certain he wouldn't try to kill everyone in the house and given just how quiet he was… she doubted her ability to survive if he tried to end her life.
Her musings were cut short by the doorbell ringing, making her frown at the fact someone would come around this late at night.
Rising to her feet she noted that whoever was at the door was rather impatient if their constant ringing of the bell was anything to go by, so she chose to walk towards the door, stopping momentarily when she heard noises from Uzumaki Naruto's room before she decided to continue walking towards the door deciding that she didn't want to confront the blond until she had regained her full composure at the very least.
So he and Matsu would get away with it tonight.
Finally reaching the door she quickly opened it, ready to give whoever was so impatient a piece of her mind before she processed the person on the other side of the door.
Her eyes widened upon taking in the form before her, their chest reaching proportions that were inhuman, the short purple dress that stretched over her chest and the pitch black hair that was tied into a long ponytail. What really caught Miya's attention though was the redness of her eyes and the empty bottle of sake in her hands.
"Miya-chan! The woman shouted as she proceeded to glomp the lavender haired landlady.
"Kazehana? What are you doing here?" she asked in shock.
"Miya-chan!" the landlady noted that the woman was most certainly crying and despite knowing for a fact that having another beautiful woman in the house would simply make Naruto even worse… she led the woman in doors where she could look after her.

And that's all for today.
I hope everyone enjoyed this chapter, though I would like to point out something before people complain too much.
Naruto has admitted to Matsu that he works as an assassin, he never mentioned that he wasn't a normal human and what she doesn't realize yet is that he can't be called sentimental in any way, shape or form... if she betrays him then he will kill her without any second thoughts.
Miya however is at the point where all she knows is that Naruto is dangerous, she doesn't even know HOW he's dangerous, just that he is. And just to clarify, it isn't that she's weak or anything like that, the fact is that she is simply ignorant of raw killing intent. She is used to murderous intent, having grown used to it from Takehito's mask and Karasuba's bloodlust, but she's never faced raw, cold killing intent DIRECTED towards HER. If Naruto used it against her too much for too long then she would grow used to it but he's not, he's using sudden bursts of intent that she has no way to prepare herself against.
And that is what terrify's her.
Now just to be clear, the thought process of someone being hit with murderous intent is 'they're going to kill me', while the thought process of someone under the influence of killing intent is 'I'm going to die' the first is something that triggers the fight or flight response, the second is one is one that causes the target to give up all hope unless they know how to dampen it themselves.
And lastly, I've always found it strange how Minato never paid for Matsu's room after he winged her, surely since she was his responsibility he should have paid for her expenses as well? At least that's just how it feels to me.
Well, that is all for now, I hope to update this fic on the 25th of November since I want to update Ansatsu Senjutsu Tokushu Butai next week.
So Until next time...
