Summary: The years between a taijutsuist's thirtieth and fortieth birthdays are known as the "deadly decade." This is because most of them die in that time period.
Chapter Summary: When Gai's greatest desire is offered up to him freely, he cannot resist. But he is not yet fully at peace with himself or his appetites.
A/N: Gai-muse would NOT cooperate for this chapter, and then all my writing skills went 'adios!' for a while. But it's finally out, and extra-long to boot!
