Naruto asks how Sasuke could bring himself to try to kill a fellow member of Team 7. Sasuke reminds him that he has broken those ties. Naruto tells Sasuke that he is aware of what Itachi went through at that he understands why Sasuke has done what he has, but Sasuke insists that Naruto cannot, having never had a family. Kakashi instructs Naruto and Sakura to go back to Konoha while he deals with Sasuke, but Naruto restrains him instead. Sasuke takes this opportunity to try and kill Kakashi. His Chidori is blocked by Naruto's Rasengan. Naruto states that he is glad he met Sasuke, as he could easily have turned out just like Sasuke. Sasuke points out that Naruto has only two options: kill him or die. Naruto rejects both.
