After gathering his things, Sasuke heads to the exit of Konoha. There he meets Sakura. He tells her to go home. Instead, she asks why, after all they’ve been through together, he always ignores her. Sasuke replies that she can’t understand him, but Sakura says that because she loves him, she’s willing to try to make it work. She offers to help him get revenge and accompany him. She is willing to do anything so that she can be there for him. He leaves and she threatens to scream. He thanks her and then knocks her out with a blow to the back of the head. The Sound Four greet Sasuke outside the village to escort him to Orochimaru.
