Away from it All/ Love...

After I left Shukaku and Raijuu, I walked off. I walked for a long time. I didn't know where, I didn't know how but I just did. I past Many things like stores, resterants, and cafes but none of those thing amused me at the moment. I was too busy thinking about stuff. Stuff that bugged me. Stuff like being in the akatsuki and being in love. Both things had something in common; they were both difficult to handle. Too much hate for biju... Too much love for biju. I could take it. I need to get away from it all.

The sun was rising and I was still walking... I have been walking for a long time, I thought to myself. Then I felt a familar chakra. It was Hachi. He was a biju, therefore he was an enemy for the Akatsuki. I didn't care though. He saved me from certain death. I wanted to talk to him. He looked depressed and seemed like he didn't want to talk to anyone but I didn't care. I was going to talk to him whether he liked it or not.

"Hachimata... hey there. What's going on? You looked troubled." I approched him. He looked up at me. I took a seat right next to him.

"Yuri... you love Shukaku right?" Hachimata asked.

"Yes... yes I do Hachimata... With all my heart." I answered. What a strange question.

"Well, how do you know?" he asked another question.

"Well It's just a felling." I replied and smiled. He let out a sigh and turned away from me. "Wait. You didn't let me finish." I told him. "Well you see, Love is that first feeling you feel before all the bad stuff gets in the way. When someone loves you, the way he or she says your name is different. You know that your name is safe in her or his mouth. When you tell someone something bad about yourself and you're scared he or she won't love you anymore. But then you get surprised because not only does he or she still love you, she loves you even more. You never have to be lonely. There's always somebody to love, even if it's just a tanuki or a kitten. Love is enfinite and you'll just know when your in love." I glared into the sunrise. My eyes orange sparkled. Saying such words made me feel right. I didn't even know I had it in me.

I continued. "Just take you and Maki for instince. I never knew Maki for long but the way you wanted to protect her, make sure she was safe, and put her in great hands... don't you think that's love Hachimata?" He looked at me. I smiled. Again, I continued. "The way you care about her so much... I beleive that's what love is. I'm sure there's no REAL defintion for love. Everyone looks at love in their own way. Caring and protecting Maki that much Hachimata... I beleive that's your definition of love. In that definition of love there's only one word you should know... And that word is Maki..." Hachimata glared at me. I stood up. I hope I was help to him...

"Well I must be going now Hachimata... It saw nice seeing you again, nice to see you okay and healthy that is... I'm sure you'll do the right thing. I have other things to attend to like finding my own way. Finding my mistakes and trying to make them right again... Ja Ne for now." And just like that, I dissapeared.
