SasoDei - In Between Madness and Life - Chapter 1Chapter 1
It was a pleasant late-summer morning in the city. Deidara's mother drove him through the town
down the empty streets, taking no turns as the GPS told her to only follow the main road. They
lived on the other side of the city and it was a long way. They had been on the road since 3 pm;
Deidara's mom was allegrophobic.
The clock on the dashboard was nearing five o'clock, but Deidara didn't feel like closing his eyes
yet. He'd used to have it so easy falling asleep at all hours, whenever he'd willed, but it all had
changed two months ago. Now he couldn't close his eyes even for a short period of time during the
night when it was dark.
The fear wasn't in his mind, it was somewhere much deeper. He couldn't shake it off, he couldn't
fall asleep in the dark to save his life. Involuntarily, his tired eyes stayed open and gazed out of the
window, taking in the passing scenery.
It was already quite light in the city center, the sun was about to rise, tinting the lower part of the

Two weeks passed by and the number of carved lines in the wooden wall grew to fourteen. Deidara
marked down every morning he woke up in the compartment just to have an imaginary connection
with the outside world by keeping track of time. Had he not had the lines, he would've believed
that 3 months had already passed.
Deidara's once vigorous body had visibly shrunk, his ribs showing and facial features having
sharpened, losing all traces of the childish roundness. His once tan, youthful and healthy face was
now pale and sick-looking, dark circles lying beneath his dim baby blue eyes. Even the sparkle in
his eyes was lost; he looked like a lifeless zombie.
He and Sasori had fallen into a pattern quite quickly. They arouse around dawn, Deidara getting
water and an apple for breakfast, before Sasori took off. Deidara was left with twelve empty hours
to occupy, until the redhead returned. He'd then be given a small amount of food and allowed to
sleep for a few hours. Around midnig

Dimly through sleep, Deidara sensed his body shaking. Uncurious about the source, he wanted to
brush the feeling off and dive back under. Turning onto his stomach, he buried his face in the
feather pillow and pulled the cover up to his ears.
But the feeling never went away. For an unknown amount of time, his shoulder was vibrating and
he suspected a person being behind it. A low indistinct mumble escaped his lips. This couldn't have
been Sebastian, now could it? Why would his servant want to wake him up? Had Father told him
to? Had they reached the land?
Last day's events came all running back to Deidara, together with a hard slap against the back of
his head. He wasn't in his compartment. In fact, his compartment didn't even exist anymore; the
remains of it were lying somewhere at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, together with Sebastian's,
his Mother-, small correction, step-mother's and step-father's bodies. Plus a whole bunch of the
Royal Navy seamen.
"Brat, get up!"

The pain of a thousand flaming nails being hammered into the back of his head woke Deidara up.
He opened his eyes, but had to cover his left one with his hand instantly. It hurt. Deidara's hand
was soon covered with the warm blood coming from his eye.
"God damn it," he muttered, sitting up slowly. His throat was sore and in flames, possibly from the
salty sea water. His entire body felt numb, except his head, which was killing him non-fatally.
Deidara felt someone take his left hand and press a wet cloth against his bleeding eye. He opened
his other, still functioning, eye and saw the same redheaded man with pale skin and dark eyes in
front of him.
The blond knew it wouldn't be wise to blurt out his first reaction, but that thought reached him
after his mouth had already opened. "Pirate," he whispered timidly, feeling stupid afterwards.
Hadn't it been dark, the redheaded man would've been able to see the blush tint the blond's
The man chuckled, turning the cloth'
