The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.
I watched the young man as he would have turned around to face me, extending out a hand in gesture to shake my own. Without much thought, my own corresponding hand reached toward his and shook it. Now that he had known the boy’s name and some of what he can do (albeit, I knew he could handle himself), I would be taking him on a mission. And, just so fortunate for him, I already had a B-rank mission upon my person which required a partner at my side—well, maybe if I wasn’t as experienced as I am now.
More so a person like him needed a partner for this task.
“Alright, Mifune. I guess I’ll be taking you upon this B-rank mission with myself. Ever been on one?”
I asked as I had retrieved a scroll from within my garbs, taking it out and unraveling it before my eyes to read over it once more. My eyes then moved from it to him, and then back to the scroll once more, and this action was repeated a few times before I just out-bursted with chuckles. I couldn’t believe the mission I was about to take the young man on. I once again had taken back into the trees, slowly getting further and further away.
My next speech would be the last before I disappeared in a burst of speed.
A strong handshake for a strong man, very fitting. This guy could prove to be a valuable asset, now it was my turn to be of value to him. Hopefully through our missions together we can form some kind of bond. I was already excited at the opportunity in front of me that I almost missed out on the one in front of me.
"A mission already?"
I shook my head up and down, and had to prevent myself from bouncing. Who says dreams don't come true?
" Let's go!"
I rushed after my new ally in a speed matching his own, and for the first time I was excited for what the future may hold.
