Flashback!Hanzou: Kill him!
DoubleFlashback!Yahiko: I have bigger dreams than that!
DoubleFlashback!Yahiko: If this screwed-up world is filled with nothing but fighting... / ...then I'll just have to become its God!!

[no text just paper]

Flashback!Nagato: *pant* // *pant* // *pant* // *pant*
Nagato: Yahiko was dead... // And so from then on, I took Yahiko's place as the leader of our organisation.
Nagato: After that, many more of my friends died in the battles to come. // Many, many more... // They just went on dying. // You fools of the Country of Fire are drunk on peace... // But those payments that you receive for your missions at your village of Konoha... those are funds for war. / Many of the people of the Country of Fire are aware of the part they are playing in war, and yet they continue to spout their sanctimonious nonsense about "peace". // The peace you people of the Great Countries enjoy is founded entirely upon the sacrifices of smaller countries like my own. // Your peace is our violence.
Nagato: Simply by living, all people cause pain to others without even realising it. // As long as people continue to exist, hatred will exist alongside them. // There is no such thing as true peace in this accursed world. // The dreams that Jiraiya-sensei spoke of were nothing more than hollow words. // ......... // Now, you have heard my story... // Let me hear your answer.

Naruto: ...You may be right about all that... / ...I think I even agree with what you're saying.
Nagato: ...I see...
Naruto: I understand you people now. // But I still can't find it in me to forgive you... / I still hate you.
Nagato: Then all that remains is to fight -
Naruto: The Ero-sennin left me this duty because he believed in me... // That's why I'm... going to try believing in what the Ero-sennin believed in. // That's my answer. // And that's why... // I'm not going... to kill you.
