Day Thirty-Two: Just One More Time

"Kyo... T-Tell me something." Sakura let out as the older man helped her back to the room where Kakashi waited for her. He turned his head to look at her, eyebrow raised in careful curiosity.

"What is it, miss?" He replied after a little hesitance, obviously cringing at the thought of her asking a question that would put him in a compromising position.

"Would you... happen to know w-where the deal will take place?" The pinkette inquired, slightly out of breath. The fresh injuries she sported made it hard for her to breathe evenly, sending a new stab of pain everytime her muscles moved her ribcage.

"M-Miss, I can't-" He was cut off before he could finish by the girl he was currently supporting, the anger on her face nearly scaring the man half to death.

"Yes, you can!" Her voice boomed, filled with animosity. There was no way that the kunoichi would be allowed the cowardice of one man not only risk the mission that she had spilled so much blood over, but her life as well as her partner's. If her count was right, and she was certain that it was, today marked the beginning of their fifth week in containment. Far too long.

"Will I escape alive if I?..." Sakura grinned, the victory shooting a immense sense of relief through her. Befriending Kyo had definitely been a good plan. The man even believed that his son had been killed for nothing, when he really had given away precious information.

"Yes." It was only a half-lie, she told herself. They would help him leave this place if it didn't endanger their own lives, but going back to Konoha with the information that they had gathered was their top priority.

"It's in Wave Country, in a cave hidden underneath the bridge that they built some years back." The older man finally admitted as he let her lean against the wall so he could open the heavy metal door.

Anger spread through her as she realized what bridge he was talking about. The Great Naruto Bridge. The thought that black market deals were being completed under a place so meaningful to her raised goosebumps on her skin, almost making her tremble in anger.

"When will it be?" Kyo only shrugged as he opened the lock, fidgeting with it before he replied.

"I don't know, it was pure luck that I knew the location. I stumbled on Koroku discussing with the client, but I fled before he could notice me." Satisfied with this explanation, Sakura only nodded, disappearing in the room once he opened the door. Only one more piece of information and they were out of here.
