He was already halfway out the window when the little voice broke past his ears. Kakashi had been sure that he’d been perfectly silent. This wasn’t the first time he’d dropped off supplies in the middle of the night either—every couple of months, between missions, when he could spare a thought.
Shirts, shorts and shoes during the summer, jackets and pants for the winter. Sure, Konoha’s own orphan program provided the basics.
