I’m starting to learn things about Kou. He hates celery. He likes cats. His teasing is only superficial. Deep down… he’s nice. He’s not the Kou from back then. His voice has changed. He’s taller. But the 16 year old Kou, I know him now. And what’s causing my heart to pound is… the 16 year old Kou.
Darling… If I’m seeing you…
That means I’m going soon.
In that brief moment…
He took you sword and went out on an adventure.
He was happy, confident and overdoing it like an idiot.
But he values his family and friends.
A kind child just like you.
But he’s growing up now.
I’m sure he’ll be okay.
I love you…Sin.
Oh yeah. There's something I've gotta tell you.
Happy birthday. You've grown so much, Naruto.
"Don’t apologize… I had a lot of hard times growing up as a jinchūriki, but I never blamed you or Dad. I couldn’t understand what a parent’s love was like because you guys were never there… so I could only guess… But now I know… I live because you and Dad gave your lives for me and filled me up with love before the Nine-Tails was inside me! So here I am, happy and healthy! I’m glad I ended up being your son!”
Happy Birthday to my big hero! ❤
