Sasuke listened quietly then frowned. "That light..." He sighed and shook his head. "It wouldn't be there if things were switched between us," he said calmly and kissed her lips. "If he watched his clan get slaughtered..."
Suigetsu nodded. "Somewhat. We usually just bite her to heal that way, but she's learning actual medical ninjutsu lately. Maybe we should get her a set of books? Beginner through advanced techniques?"
"those two reasons and... She has offensive, defensive and healing abilities... She was born a poisonous slug but learned to heal from katsuyu.... Unfortunately the other slugs bullied her and now... She gets very mad and upset when people treat her like a freak, like how people did Naruto.... She told me he was the first other than me and Lady Tsunade to treat her kindly.... Said that he told her she was his friend..." She explained and smiled softly. "Naruto... He has a light in him that has only gotten stronger over the years."
Kemuri nodded and thought for a moment. "she has some medical ninjutsu knowledge, right?"
"Is it so Kai had backup in case something went wrong, or he got lost?" Sasuke guessed and kissed her forehead with a small smile.
Suigetsu thought about it. "Maybe a weapon cleaning kit for Sasuke? And for Karin..." He hummed in thought. "Does she want a pet, maybe?"
"he's very sweet but I think he'll get stronger over time." She said and kissed him. "but so you want to know more about Shinsuke? Why i sent her with Kai?"
She nodded and asked. "what about Sasuke and Karin?"
Sasuke nodded a little and relaxed. "Well...hopefully that boy doesn't get lost or hurt." He kissed her lips gently and smiled softly. "What do you think of Kai?"
Suigetsu nodded and gathered a few things before he found a few relaxation CDs for Juugo. "He likes these," he explained with a smile. "It helps him sleep and stay calm."
"Naruto won't let him get hurt.... According to Shinsuke, he's gotten pretty attached to both of them." She said and kissed him. "and Shinsuke isn't like katsuyu or the other healing slugs. That's why she gets defensive when people look at her like... Well, you know how people used to look at Naruto? Or Gaara?"
"we do need more dry foods." She said and picked out a few books for Sakura and a puzzle for her sister.
Sasuke frowned. "I hope Kai is okay. He's a baby, after all. I'd feel bad if something happened to him...his mother would never forgive me, I feel..."
Suigetsu looked around and grabbed a few things he thought they might need. "Are we low on food?" he asked her and kissed her cheek.
"you're not mad still?" She asked and kissed him. "Personally i would but.... You remember how scared i used to be.... And especially on that first big mission, the one where we had to protect Tazuna and fight Zabuza and Haku?"
Kemuri nodded and smiled. "yeah."
Sasuke watched the slug rush off before he chuckled a little. "Kai doesn't seem like the type that would enjoy battle, does he?" he asked her finally. "Should I keep him out of battle, in your opinion?"
Suigetsu hugged her again and chuckled. "Can I help you?"
Shinsuke nuzzled Sakura and said. "I'm going back to Naruto."
Sakura nodded and watched her go. Shinsuke being one of the fastest slugs Sakura knew, she knew that she'd get to the blonde in no time. "She said Kai is safe with Naruto, apparently likes sleeping in his pocket."
Kemuri jumped about a foot in the air before turning to slap his arm and hugged him. "You scared the fuck out of me!" She hissed and sighed. "I was getting some supplies for us."
Sasuke looked at Shinsuke and Sakura. "Hello, slug," he greeted her a little coldly. "Back from your secret mission?" He watched them for a bit then looked at Sakura.
Suigetsu had decided to follow Kemuri and snuck up on her, hugging her from behind. "Boo!" he said and grinned.
Kemuri blinked at first but smiled nodding to him. She took the girl to the nearest village and left her near the gates. She snuck in and went to the market.
Shinsuke went to Sakura being careful and gave her a report about Naruto.
Sakura smiled at Shinsuke and nodded. "I'm glad he's okay. Thanks for keeping an eye on him." She said and paused looking over to Sasuke.
Sasuke hesitated then poked her forehead. “Thank you, Kemuri. I promise I’ll try to be better.” He smiled a little then went back to Sakura.
Yamato nodded and smiled. “Of course, Slug,” he promised her and put a protective wooden dome around Naruto and Kai.
Kemuri smiled softly and said. "It's okay, Sasuke. You saved me and my sister, for that and everything you've earned my trust and respect. I'm glad we're friends now."
"i will, i promise. You won't notice I'm gone." She said and looked at Yamato. "Keep Naruto and Kai safe for me, tree baka, okay?"
Sasuke hesitated. “Kemuri?” He paused. “I’m sorry about when we met. Can you forgive me for being an asshole to you? I’ve been in a bad place lately...”
Naruto nodded and kissed her head gently. “Be careful okay?”
