Sasuke lay in his bed caught in the midst of consciousness and unconsciousness. He was able to rest but he was still remotely aware of his surroundings. He felt the soft, cool patch resting over his left eye; the rays of chakra from Karin's careful hands seeping into his body. He breathed in and out at a steady rate. He could feel the humid air weigh down the crispy surface of his large wound down his one arm that only stopped bleeding a few days ago. But it was not such a major matter. Yes, the injury was great and deep and there were dangers of infection, but past those hazards was a gradual process of healing with healing chakra as a catalyst. However, now he was at the point that he could not gain any more rest; he was beginning to feel restless. Slowly, Sasuke opened his and winced at the bright light. He pushed himself up with unsteady motions which sent a shot of pain throughout his core.
"Ngh !" He tried to restrict the amount of noise escaping his lips. Karin leant in and placed a pillow behind his back to comfort his spine. Suigetsu and Jūgo shuffled closer.
"Looks like you've had a good amount of rest, so far," Karin noted. Sasuke looked at her, glanced at the other two then back.
"How ..." He cleared his throat, "How long have I been out?"
"A while," she said as she continued to tend to him.
"Good couple weeks, I'd say," Suigetsu added. Sasuke coughed.
"You were somewhat conscious not long after you were brought here. As you can see- or feel- your eye was examined and now you need to wear that until it heals up or at least more is done," Jūgo explained.
"Sakura says you may need drops to help clear them up," Karin furthered added. Sasuke pondered over the thought of what he missed over the last few weeks. No one of his team of his rogue days was gone but for those in Konoha, he'd no idea. Then the heavy thought struck him.
