Imperfect Secrets: Dawn of Fire and Wind
Guess who is back with a new laptop and more awesome stories? Me! Well I am happy to announce that my other two stories will continue and be updated within two weeks since I have a job now. I still love all of my loyal readers and guests too. So let's get on with the story!
Disclaimer: I do not own Naruto or any of its original character's. I do however own Anatsu, Mayonaka. They were made out of me and my sister's imagination way before this story was thought of.
Anatsu is pronounced- Uh-Not-Sue
Mayonaka is pronounced- May-Oh-Naka (like the naka in Yamanaka, Ino's clan)
****No actual update I was just had to fix the Chapter label it said Chapter 2 when this is Chapter 1****
Chapter 1/ Normal POV-
She walked down the streets of Konoha with her nose in a book, her nin-kin at her side, and her hair held in a high ponytail. Her outfit, a forest green tank top with a mesh shirt over it, and a pair of black shorts that reach about mid-thigh and combat boots, blended in with the hustle and bustle of the citizens around her. Her eyes were sucking in the words on the page as she continued on her route to the Market. She didn't notice a blonde haired man walking in her way in standard jounin attire.
"Oomph." She let out a squeak as her butt hit the ground.
She began to panic when she realized that she had let go of her book, and it wasn't anywhere near her.
"Excuse me, but I think this belongs to you." A lovely tenor voice sounded in her ears.
She began to wonder if she was hearing things when her book appeared in front of her face.
The woman looked up to see a blonde haired man standing in front of her holding her book out. All she could think was. He looks like he just jumped out of one of my romance novels.
The red head took in his ocean blue eyes and his unruly blonde hair. He had a small nose and kissable lips. His sun-kissed skin made her want to touch him just to see if he was as warm as he looked.
"Are you ok?" He asked her with a hint of worry.
"Yeah I am fine just a little shocked is all. Normally I never run into someone, I'm sorry." She replied sheepishly.
"It's alright. I'm Minato Namikaze." He held his hand out for her to shake when she stood up.
Cat-like hazel eyes looked at me with curiosity. "My name is Anatsu Hyō. I am so sorry about running into."
I laughed "Like I said before it's alright I wasn't paying much attention to what I was doing myself."
She giggled and it made me feel happy that she wasn't so worried about running into me. Some children ran by playing Ninja and the sight made frown slightly.
"What's wrong Hyō-san?"
"To them we are the heroes of this village, and they want to become just like us, but they know nothing of the hardships and losses we go through for our village." She replied while toying with a charm on her bracelet.
"That is why we teach them about what it means to be a ninja if they enroll in the academy." I told her.
She smiled sweetly at me, and I could tell right away it was a fake. "Yeah but some will continue on thinking that it could never happen to them until it is too late."
"I'm sorry." I told her hoping she would smile for real this time.
She genuinely smiled at me and it felt good to know I made that smile happen.
"Thank you Namikaze-san." She replied with a lovely smile.
"What?" She replied confused.
"Minato is my name, Hyō-san. There is no need to be formal with a friend is there?" I asked her with a big grin.
She gave me a smile in return. "I guess not. Call me Anatsu, well that's what all of my friends call me anyways."
She giggled, but she was interrupted by a nudge in her back. She turned around and growled at whoever pushed her. I was surprised to hear a growl back, so I leaned over and looked to who was brave enough to growl at someone.
I was at a loss for words when I saw a panther with bright baby blue eyes and pitch black fur. It was tall, the cat's head reaching Anatsu's waist. The big cat's body was built for running and pouncing. You could see its muscles and know that this cat was dangerous yet lithe. It wasn't bulky and huge; it was slim and tall, for agility and strength.
The panther turned its starry blue eyes on me and then came over to sniff me. I stiffened and then relaxed once it tilted its head towards my hand.
"Mayonaka it's not nice to interrupt people's conversation even if you are bored." Anatsu scolded the feline with her hands on her hips.
The cat huffed and sat in front of me, as if claiming I was its new best friend for the attention I was giving it. I squatted down so I was eye level with her and smiled. The panther looked back at Anatsu and then looked at me. It stared at me and I just scratched under her chin, in return the big cat purred.
"She's beautiful, but why did you name her Mayonaka, and where did you get her?" I asked Anatsu.
"I was five when she was born, my parents Nin-kin mated and she is from their first litter. She chose me when she was able to forms a bond with humans, and she's been mine ever since. I named her Mayonaka, because her eyes are such a rare light blue for panthers that whenever I look at them they remind me of the stars." She confessed to me with a light blush on her cheeks.
"Well I can understand why now. Her eyes are very beautiful. She's the first panther I have ever seen as a nin-kin. I'm used to seeing dogs or wolves, but never a panther." I said while smiling at Mayonaka.
"My clan is the only clan that uses panthers as nin-kin. Panthers are believed to be too stubborn and independent to have as companion. Because of those characteristics they look over the fact that they are fiercely loyal and protect their family." Anatsu replied to me with a look of slight irritation at the bad name panthers have been given.
Suddenly Mayonaka got up and whined at Anatsu, while rubbing her side against her companion's hip.
"I know, but the steaks aren't going anywhere, and plus we haven't trained in a couple days from that mission and I want to make sure you healed perfectly."
"I could help you train if you like. I have to meet up with my students, in about an hour, and teach them some more things though." I told her with a smile on my face.
"That would be great, but I need to go to the market first. I'll meet you in the training grounds at-"
She smiled. "Yeah Mayonaka and I will meet you and your genin in an hour. Don't forget either."
She began to walk away with her panther at her side, but she turned around and looked me in my eyes with a small smile. "I'll see you then, Minato."
She turned back around and began to walk away. I turned around to walk to the training grounds when I heard someone shreek.
"We just met him Mayo-chan! I'm not old enough to mate with anyone yet! I still have a couple of years to go before I settle down and have kits."
I chuckled and continued on my way slowly to the training grounds.
Tell me what you think! As always please review/fav/follow and I love you all.
Special shout out to my sister DEADPrincess01 for helping me with all of this madness in my head to get me out of the funk of writer's block.
P.S. Anatsu's Character is based off of my personality. Haha I had to write something with my OC though and I wanted to try my hand in NarutoVerse.
