Impressive, a deep voice thunders throughout my mind. You wouldn't imagine that such a small, slender woman could handle this much chakra.
The beast chained to my soul is not the only one intrigued by the Kusakage's hunger. While I was aware that her clan was capable of harnessing quite a bit, the levels she'd dove into were borderline dangerous.
I know, right?
You might have to intervene if she doesn't stop soon.
I know, I replied. I've been monitoring how much she's taken. She's fine.
Are you sure?
I imagine she's been feeding off of the Shodaime since they became involved, I reasoned to the beast. If I'm correct, she's probably used to a lot more chakra than this; you can feel him, can't you?
I can. I could see the Hachibi's face in my mind; his expression was still concerned. But even so, he is but a man, Akira. My-- our chakra is far different. It could be dangerous for the baby.
Yeah, I agreed. That is true. But, I think she's finished.
Blanche released my grip merely a second later, her eyes red and wet with tears, her body slouched before me as though she'd been delivered a crumpling blow. I closed and opened my hand several times, loosening the muscles she'd clenched so furiously. "Quite a grip," I laughed while shaking my hand. "Aside from that, I'm perfectly fine." I pause, paying more attention to the sudden red of her eyes. She was in pain, and it was more clear than ever that she'd fallen a long way -- he never would have imagined that she would allow a desire like this to run her life.
"I told you to be careful, didn't I?" Leaning forward, I hooked both hands beneath her arms and effortlessly-- but with the utmost care --plucked her from her knees, onto her feet. My gaze falls to her swollen belly. "I hope you enjoyed that, little one." Releasing her, I give the crown of her stomach a very gentle pat before taking a step back. Bold? Perhaps, but considering I'd just let her feast on me like I was some buffet, I didn't see any issue with it.
