In the end he knew there was nothing he could do for her. Despite all his strength, despite all his love, there was nothing he could do for her.
In the end he could only watch her, hold her safely in his arms and stroke her hair. He could only press his lips to her rapidly cooling brow and watch her with sad eyes.
He thought if he was someone different, if his life hadn't been tarnished by so much sin that he may have been able to save her, his beloved ninja. But how could hands stained with so much blood protect anyone? What right did he have now to ask the world for mercy on her when he showed none to people in the past?
In the end he couldn't save her. In the end he could only watch the blood ebb from her pale, thin body, watch her skin become paper thin. He could only hold her body close to his and whisper that he loved her over and over again.
In the end he could only watch her die.
