Italicized sentences- Thoughts


"Mom… I… I missed you so much…"

"I missed you too. Now, sleep my angel." Mom kissed my forehead.

I felt weird when my mother kissed my forehead. I started to feel sleepy. Slowly, I fell asleep. Mother patted my forehead, "I wish for you to be happy my sweet Aya. Take care." She slowly disappeared.


Chapter 2- Where am I?

I felt different, but I was still cold. The ground feels hard, but it wasn't wet either. How come I don't feel comfy like I was supposed to? When I used my left hand or moved around I could sense a lot of dirt and rocks around me. That was when I realized I was not sleeping on my bed.

"That's right… I must have slept outside here since I have no place to live… I dreamt that my mother was here talking to me. She told me that I'll get 'another chance of life'. I wonder what she means by that. Well, it doesn't matter… It was all just a dream… I wish it was real though."

I sighed, "I've better get going before Tai-sensei yells at me again for being late."

I slowly opened my eyes and blinked several times. I shifted up my right hand to cover my face, seeing that the sun rays hit my face. "Stupid sun… I hate having the sunlight over my face… What the-? Why are there so many trees around?"

I paused, "Trees!" I bolted up. I was surrounded by a forest.

"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" I screamed loudly, causing the birds to fly away from the distressing noise.

I slapped my hand to cover my mouth. I looked around; it appeared that I was no longer at the park. This must be a dream. It can't be real. All I have to do is pinch myself and I'll know that I'm dreaming. I strained my cheek with my fingers, "Ow… No… It's not a dream after all. Okay… Where am I?" I slowly got up.

I wandered around the forest. I was starting to feel a chill as I was rubbing my arms together. This place is giving me the creeps. I needed to get out of here before anything happened to me. I stopped. I realized something; how did I get here in the first place? All I remember was that I was at the park, but there's no such forest in the park or is there? God, I'm so confused! What's the meaning of this!

I heard loud noise. I jumped, surprised and turned around seeing the bush shiver… Bushes aren't supposed to shiver. I started panicking and seriously thought that it could be bad guys that would want to attack me... or maybe even kill me...

My eyes widen. It was worse… The thing that came out behind the bushes a second later was a wild boar. The wild boar was sniffing and staring at me.

I gulped, "Um… Nice piggy… Stay there… That's right, don't move… Just stay where you are… Good piggy…" I walked backwards slowly.

Continually walking backward, I might be able get out of his way. Without noticing, I realized that I had suddenly stepped a long stick.

CRACK!

The wild boar was now glaring at me. Steam was coming out through his nose, and it stomped its feet loudly.

My face turned blue, "Oh crap, this is not good!"

I bolted. The wild boar chased after me. I was exasperated and shouted, "WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN TO ME!"

I passed a bunch of trees and jumped dozens of rocks and logs. When I turned around, he was still there chasing me. I was so afraid, what would happen to me? Am I going to get killed? I hope not! I can't die a place like this! The next thing I knew, I saw the wild boar stop.

I stopped as well and looked at him, confused, "I wonder why he stopped? Has he given up? Oh well, it doesn't matter anymore! It's my chance to escape before he hunts me again. Wait a minute… How come I feel that I'm no longer on the ground? I feel like I'm floating..."

I moved around my left foot. Still I felt no ground. What the-? I looked down and saw a river. That means I'm in the air… defying gravity. Yup, defying gravity all right. Wait a minute… DEFYING GRAVITY! THAT'S FREAKING IMPOSSIBLE! Oh my god! I'm going to fall!

I screamed so loud, "AHHHHHHHHH!"

I fell into the water. Another problem arose… I can't swim! I tried to grab the rock, but I missed. I had water going through my mouth. I spit out, coughing wildly. My body couldn't take the rough current any longer and I went down deep into the water.

My eyes started seeing black, "Is this end of my life? Oh god… Mom… Help me…"


- (Third Person Point of View)-

"I decided that you guys need to train since I know that we've been on lots of mission and yet, hardly do any training. So, I want you guys to try work on your accuracy. Focus at the center target in the tree, and aim straight at it, understood?" A silvered haired man said calmly.

"All right! Finally, training! You better prepare, Sasuke-teme! I'm going to show Kakashi-sensei that I'm better than you!" A blonde boy pointed at raven haired boy.

"Whatever dobe. It's not like I care. No matter what, how much you try to beat me, you're still dead last, Naruto." Sasuke said coldly.

"What did you say, Sasuke-teme!" Naruto yelled.

"You heard what I said, dobe!" Sasuke glared.

Naruto and Sasuke berated each other. A pinked haired girl sighed, "This happen everyday… Why does this have to happen? If only Sasuke-kun paid more attention to me…"

"Now, now, Sakura, don't feel sad. Forget about them and continue your training. We don't know how long they're goin-" Kakashi froze as he saw something. He saw the body floating in the river. His eye widened, and in a flash, he disappeared, running towards the river.

"Kakashi-sensei! Where are you going! Wait!" Sakura followed him.

Naruto and Sasuke stopped arguing and saw Kakashi running. "Where's Kakashi-sensei going? Is he going somewhere?" Naruto asked confused.

"Why don't we find out, dobe? It's better than waiting here for him to come back." Sasuke shoved his hands into his pockets.

"Shut up! I know that! You don't need to tell me!" They both sped off.

Kakashi tried to catch up the person, but the water was too fast. He became aware that there was a waterfall coming up ahead. "Damn! If I don't hurry up, that person will fall. What am I going to do…Wait, that's right!" Kakashi lifted his head protector and revealed his sharingan.

Kakashi used his speeding jutsu. When he caught up, he jumped in, and swam swiftly. He caught the person's hand just in time before waterfall was near and managed to swim back. Suddenly he noticed that the person was a female. He lifted her out of the water, placing her down softly.

He touched her cheek, "Crap… She's not breathing. What am I going to do?" he muttered.

Kakashi knew he had no other choice but to do this. He looked around to see if there was anyone around. However there wasn't. He looked back at her and pulled his mask down. Holding her nose, he started giving her CPR. Kakashi placed his head on her chest to hear her heartbeat, but no response.

He went back and gave her more air, "Come on, don't die on me yet! Come on!"

Until…

He heard her coughing. "Thank god! She's gonna be all right. Good thing that I saved her on time." Kakashi lifted his mask back up


-Aya's POV-

I coughed water out through my mouth. "Why am I alive? I thought I was dead. Did someone save me...? Someone did... didn't they... I wonder who saved me."

I turned around. My eyes widened as I saw the silvered haired man with a mask. The thing that freaked me out the most was his red eye and scar. I screamed, jumping up, and hiding behind the nearest tree.

My body was shaking really bad because I was extremely afraid of this man. He could be either a stalker or worse… a killer. Damn it, why do I always think in that kind of way! I shouldn't even think about it either. It only makes the situation worse...

"Okay, calm down… I'm sure that man must have left already." I took a small peek but he was still there, staring at me. I hid again. I'm so scared of him! What am I going to do now?


- (Third Person Point of View)-

Kakashi raised his right eye. "Is she afraid of me? I wonder why she's afraid of me. She should thank me at least… But more mysterious, I've never seen her before. Also, what's with her clothes? I know that those kind of clothes don't even belong to any other village. Those are the weirdest clothes I have ever seen. I guess I'll ask her about it. Hmm…Well, she's not bad looking either." He examined her up and down.

Her hair was long and light green. It was tied in red bow. Her eyes were violet in color and she had pink lips that were normal is size - not too big or small. It was a perfect lip. Her skin color was kind of white and by that, he knew that she didn't go out into the sun that much. She wore a strangely designed light blue blouse and black pants.

"I guess she's all right. She may be a little different than the other women that I've ever seen."


- Back to Aya's POV-

"Sensei!" A voice called.

I snuck another small and quick look again and saw three kids run towards the silvered haired man.

"How dare you leave us behind! If you're going somewhere, then you should have told us!" A blonde boy pointed at him, glaring.

"Oh, I didn't leave you guys. I had to save someone's life, but it seems that she's all right now." The silvered haired man positioned back his head protector across his left eye.

"Huh? Who's that person you saved and where is she? I don't see her." The blonde boy looked around.

"She's right there," The silvered haired man pointed in the direction of the tree.

All three kids looked at where the silvered haired man was pointing at. They saw me, hiding like a little puppy.

"What's the matter with her? Why's she hiding from us?" The pinked haired girl asked.

"I have no idea. She hid as soon as she woke up." The silvered haired man scratched his head.

"She must be afraid of us." The raven hair boy answered.

"Afraid of us! Why would she be afraid of us? There's no need for her to be afraid of us! It's not like we're monsters that want to eat her! Hey, you there, come out already! We're not going to hurt you!" The blonde boy shouted at me.

I snorted. With that attitude? It sounds like you want to beat me up the minute I step out.

I shook my head. I wouldn't dare come out because I could never trust anyone in my entire life. They could be either bad guys or other. A 50 percent chance. Mm. I'd better stay away from them and not take the risk.

"Oy, please come out Miss," The silvered haired man came closer.

I gasped and turned to run, but got tripped up by the long roots. I looked up and saw he was getting closer, his hand about to touch me. I slapped his hand. "Don't touch me!" I shouted.

"Ow! You know, that really hurt. You sure have some gut to slap my hand." He rubbed his hand, his tone carrying amusement.

"Please don't hurt me! If you want money or jewelry, I don't have any! I'll give you my watch instead… but I can't give you my locket… please, just leaves me alone!" I cried as covered my head with my hands.

"Oy, hold on second! Who said that we're robbing you? We're not bad guys! We don't want your watch or anything. We wouldn't hurt you either."

"R-really? You're not here… to hurt me?" I looked up, confused.

"Hai, we promise we won't hurt you. Trust us; we're not here to harm you. Here, let me help you up." He held out his hand.

I stared at his hand and looked at him. He was smiling. Well, I wasn't sure if he was smiling, but I couldn't really tell if he was or not. I don't know if I should trust this man… Somehow, something tells me that I should. I grabbed his hand. He pulled me up and I began to walk away from the tree.

I noticed that the blonde boy was staring at me. I raised my right eyebrow, wondering why he was looking at me. He came closer and peered closely at my face. His eyes were connected to my eyes. I don't know why he was looking at me. It's kind of creepy… because no one has ever looked at me like that before. Well, maybe he never saw an ugly girl like me that's for sure. I mean, come on, who wanted to date an unattractive girl like me.

"You're pretty!" He finally answered.

"Huh?" I stared at him, puzzled. "What did he just say?" I blinked. He gave me another look.

"I said you're pretty! I never saw a pretty girl like you before and you seem like a nice lady." the blonde haired boy smiled.

"Pretty?" I fell to floor, hurting my behind. I never thought of myself pretty… mainly because everyone always told me that I was ugly. The only person told me that I was pretty was my mother. I don't usually believe her because I thought my mother said that just to make me feel better. But right now, I feel... happier. Tears streamed down my cheeks.

"Ano... are you okay, Miss? Why are you crying? Did I say something wrong to make you cry? I didn't mean to make you cry!" A blonde boy started to panic.

"No… you didn't… I… I just… I just feel happy…" I started wiping my eyes. I paused realizing something. Where am I? Maybe I should to ask them; they'll know where I am.

"Excuse me for asking a silly question, but where am I? I'm kind of lost… You see, yesterday I was at the park called Cherry Blossom. I fell asleep and the next thing I knew I ended up in the forest when I woke up. I don't even know how I got there. Then, a wild boar started chasing after me and I fell off a cliff. I got fell into the river and I thought I drowned… I don't know what happened after I woke up. Could you please tell me where I am?" I asked shyly, flushing.

They looked at each other, turned back and stared at me as they thought that I was crazy.

The silvered hair man slowly said, "Um… Are you sure you didn't get drunk last night? That could the reason why you couldn't remember anything when you had gone into the forest."

"Nani! I didn't get drunk; I'm not even old enough to drink, too!"

"Sensei, do you think she's gone insane? It could be that too, because I never heard of a park called Cherry Blossom in our village before." A pinked hair girl whispered him.

I could hear her clearly. "Insane! How could you call me insane! I'm not insane! Really, I'm really not!"

"It sounds like she has been brainwashed. Someone must have use a jutsu on her, causing her to have memory lapses. I bet that's how she made up the story to try and make us believe her," The raven haired boy crossed his arms.

"Jutsu? Okay, I don't know what that means, but you've got it all wrong! I didn't get brainwashed and I sure didn't make it up either! Really, you've got to believe me!"

"R-right… We believe you all right, Miss. Heh, Heh, Heh… Nice joke," The blonde boy laughed nervously, rubbing his shoulder.

"This isn't a joke! Please believe me! I'm telling the trut-" The silvered man covered my mouth.

"Calm down, Miss! I think you need to relax, you must be feeling sick. Maybe we can get you some help or take you to the hospital."

I slapped his hand, "How can I calm down! I'm not sick! Please you've got to believe me…" I cried.

"Hey… Don't cry… It's not that I don't believe you. I'm just a bit surprised at your story. Your story was like… well, I don't know how to say it. Anyhow, let me introduce myself and my students. I am Hatake Kakashi. I'm their sensei. The girl on the left is Haruno Sakura," He pointed at the girl with pink hair, "The boy on the right is Uchiha Sasuke," He pointed at raven haired boy. "And finally, the boy on the middle is Uzumaki Naruto. As you can see, we're from the Village of Konoha (Leaf) …And we are ninja."

I stood there, stunned. Did he say ninja? Impossible! No way… can't be.… This has all got to be a joke. This has got be a trap. Yeah, it has to be. This is all just a set up directed by Kane. She's trying to make me like a fool again. Well, I'm not going to fall for it!

"I get it… You guys must have been hired by Kane and are trying to make me say something stupid. You wanted me to believe everything you guys said and I have no doubt that people recording us now. I see now. She's going to show the whole school. Show the school that I'm the world's dumbest person on video… Well, guess what? I'm not going to let you guys make a fool out of me!" I pointed at them, scowling.

"World's dumbest person on video? I don't know what that is, but we're not kidding. We really are ninjas!" Naruto grinned, giving me a thumbs up.

"Nice try. But I won't fall for it…" I crossed my arms.

"Why would we be kidding around when we really are ninja! Man, how dumb you think you are? Che!" Sasuke looked away.

"I'm not dumb! There's no way you guys are ninja! If you are a ninja, then prove it to me!"

Kakashi sighed and came closer to me. He stares at me, "Very well, if you really don't believe us. I'll prove it to you then. Watch closely."

"Huh?" I stared in confusion.

I watched Kakashi make weird positions with his hands as they were held together. His hands moved quickly, so quickly I couldn't see- it was hard to see them. I wonder what he is trying to do. After a few hand positions, he stopped and his eyes closed, "Kage Bunshin No Jutsu!"

There was a puff of white smoke, making the air gusty. I waved my hand around. Where does the smoke come from, anyhow? I watched as the smoke finally cleared but I still saw Kakashi in the middle.

I made a face and said, "Ano… I thought you said you were going to show me something to prove that you are a ninja.. I guess you must have used a smoke bomb. I knew you had lied."

"You really think so?" I felt a tap on my shoulder.

I jumped and I whipped around, my eyes were widening. I saw another Kakashi. I stood, mouth opened in amazement. I turned back and saw Kakashi in another place, reading some orange book called Icha Icha Paradise. I slowly went back to stare at the other Kakashi that had tapped me on my shoulder from the beginning. I looked back, forward, back, and forward until...

Oh my god! It can't be real… I started to cover my mouth.

"Oy, you okay?" Kakashi looked up from the book.

I backed away. "You're… You're a… MONSTER!" I started running like a crazy.

I was seriously freaked out. "What in the world is going on here! He used some strange magic and makes another clone of himself. What's the meaning of this! I don't understand this!"

"HEY, WATCH OUT!"

"Huh?" I curved my head around.

CRASH!

I crashed into the tree. I fell down into the dirt and my head started to make circles. Woo… dizzy... Absently, the last thing I remembered before I passed out was… "Oy, you okay? Speak to us!"

TBC
