Chapter 2 Trust
“No way!” Katsu said examining Shoji’s new Knuckle Busters. Katsu is a out going fellow. His hair is a dirty blond, his hair style is shaggy and hair covers almost all of his forehead. He wears a white jacket with a black t-shirt under it. Katsu’s pants are a navy blue and his Ninja shoes are a blue. Instead of his head his head protector is on his upper arm.
“Awesome huh?” Shoji said scratching a sign on a tree near by. “How bout’ we make a memorial of our friendship?”
“Yes, if we don’t succeed we will be remembered,” Kameko depressingly said. Kameko has long hair tied back into a pony-tail with a rubber band. It’s a silky brown, her eyes are the same color. She wears a light blue shirt with the Leaf Village sign on the back. Her pants and shoes are a navy blue.
“Don’t speak like that Kameko-chan,” Shoji snapped. “We will do it.” He mumbled. “Anyway, lets find a big tree ”
Hikaro got up and stretched. His eyes opened wide. “There ” Hikaro ran to a giant tree.
Everyone followed his lead. Hikaro, the fastest runner was about 10 yards in front of the rest. He can run at a break neck speed. He stopped completely.
“Wow, This is perfect ” Shoji exclaimed. “Alright, let’s get started ” He ran the Knuckle Buster’s sharp end down the tree. He made a four. “Sign your name!”
Kameko took a Buster and signed her name gracefully and added a smile connecting her A to her O. “Who’s next?”
Hikaro grabbed the other Knuckle Bust from Shoji, cutting his hand.
“Ow ” Shoji screamed. “Hikaro- kun ”
“Here,” Kameko took Shoji’s hand and wrapped a bandage on the cut. “All better!”
“Th- Thanks Kameko- chan ” Shoji studdered. He is tanned face showed two red spots on his cheeks.
Kameko’s silky brown hair blew in the wind. She stood firmly in front of Shoji, her cheeks a little red.
Wow, I didn’t notice how cute she is... I- I wonder if she likes me.
“Okay, um if we can finish it would be great,” Hikaro interrupted. He signed his name nicely making his H bigger than all the other letters.
Katsu carefully grabbed the Knuckle Buster from Hikaro. He signed his name in a small print making a smiley face below it. “Here Shoji- kun,” Katsu handed one of the Knuckle Busters to Hikaro.
Kameko smiled and handed the other Buster to Shoji. When their hands met they quickly pulled apart dropping the Buster on the ground. Kameko quickly bent down and dropped it into Shoji’s hand.
“Alright, my turn,” Shoji made his name like a signature fast but readable. On the other side of the four he made the word Ever. He stopped in his tracks and looked down. “I have complete trust in you guys. I know we’ll do it. We will come back to our village safely, unharmed.”
Katsu put his hand on Shoji’s shoulder. “We trust you too, captain,” Katsu comforted.
“Yes, yes we do trust you,” Kameko agreed. “We should go home, we meet at the village gate tomorrow morning ” She walked off towards the village.
“Bye Shoji- kun,” Katsu called while running.
Hikaro turned and dashed off into the trees without saying anything.
“That, Hikaro...” Shoji started. “I guess I’m in good hands.” Shoji turned and walked into the distance toward the Leaf Village glistening in the sunlight.
