Ta-Da! I has made an appearance once again!
So there are going to be two polls going on during the story, at least for right now. One is a poll for pairings, if you think there should be any pairings at all. I'm open to any pairing and the more challenging the better. The second poll is going to be a guessing game. In every chapter that Harry's "guardian" shows up, I'll add in a new details. It is up to you to guess who it is.
So please R&R!
It was an entirely different place than he'd expected to land, that much was certain. Then again, Harry James Potter was used to different. He had been different his whole life, never really fitting in. Famous before he could walk and talk. Most people would have loved that but Harry hated it. He just wanted to be normal. A grimace appeared on the teenager's face. That was why he had left really. He wanted to get away from everything and he certainly didn't want to be the "Chosen One".
Harry was just glad that he had been able to escape. It had been a stroke of genius on his part. No one would ever think of looking in another world for him. At least not for a long while.
A small puff of smoke made Harry turn his head slightly. He sighed softly but said nothing. Maybe one person would, but this was the person who had given Harry his idea in the first place.
The fifteen-year-old regarded the person who had just appeared carefully.
"You can't convince me to change my mind." He said dully to the hooded figure. A masked face turned towards him and Harry read from her posture that she was glaring at him.
"That's it then?" She asked in a tense tone. "You're just going to abandon them to the hands of a madman?"
Green eyes flashed.
"I'm not abandoning them. I just need a break from everything. It's not exactly a cake-walk you know, being attacked all the time and having people gawp at you. I'll go back eventually. If it's truly my destiny, I'll do my part. Just not now. I'm only fifteen." He replied.
The two walked in silence before the covered woman spoke again.
"You do realize here most shinobi make their first kills well before the age of fifteen." Harry glared at her.
"I'm not a warrior. I don't want to be." He stated. "In any other case, I would have been considered a citizen. I would never have to deal with something like this."
The silence resumed.
"Promise me something?" Harry tilted his head to the side, indicating that he was listening.
"Don't get yourself killed. I'll walk you until Konohagakure but then stay within the gates. Outside of them, things get…deadly." Harry quirked an eyebrow but nodded. "Don't forget what I've told you."
"My name is Hiru Akago and I'm a civilian from the Land of Tea, wanting a new start in Konoha because my family was slaughtered by rogue nin." He replied automatically. "The less details the better and don't tick anyone off."
He was given a tiny nod in response and the two continued to walk. After a couple of hours, large walls loomed into sight. A ball of nerves immediately began to form in Harry's stomach.
"I'll check in regularly." Harry's guardian said. "If you see me around, don't act like you know me."
"Will you be returning to your duties?" The boy questioned. He was given a small nod. Harry allowed a small smile to show on his face as he was handed a key.
"Apartment next to the Akimichi barbecue, third floor, room 6. Don't let the guards scare you." Harry's smile widened as his green eyes met chocolate brown eyes.
"See you around then." He said quietly as his companion disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
Remember...R&R! Reviews are most welcome!
