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.
Neah watched as the sun set from a window and smiled. Neah watched as peope began to turn on there lights in neighboring houses as the sky grew darker and darker. He could hear the soft chirping of a grasshopper off in the distance. He silently crept through the house as he checked room to room for anything suspicious. Nothing had turned up yet so far. Maybe the theives had chickened out. Then he heard the knock at the door. Neahs face lit up with excitement knowing fully well that that this house had no representative.
Neah licked his lips in anticipation but he must keep his excitement in check. He had to Remain quiet so he could attempt and catch the thieves off guard. Neah stayed in the room he was currently in the darkness encasing the room.Neah took a few calming breaths and began to formulate a strategy in his mind. He thought to himself 'Ok neah its game time what are you gonna do about it?' The smart thing would be to pick the thieves off one by one but he wasn't sure if the thieves were gonna stick to groups. Neah opened his eyes slowly and let his eyes adjust to the darkness. He slowly and quietly began to make his way to the a wall right behind the door. He had a good side view of the hallway in front of the door but he couldn't see around the corner. Never the less neah would remain vigilant and listen to see how many bandits there were.
Neah hunched over as he finally adjusted the flowers to his liking. He slowly removed his hands from the flowers and placed them in his pockets and bowed his head and shut his eyes. The warm sun bathing him in its warm embrace as he suddenly felt something in his pocket. He ignored it for the moment and he could tell the kid was staring at him. It didn't bother neah that much he was use to it by now in fact he rather enjoyed it he was finally getting some attention and human contact. Neahs face slowly crept up into a smile as he opened his eyes.
Neah puled his hand free from one pocket and patted the top of the leather violin case. The smooth texture seemed to bring him at peace for the moment. Neah got up on one knee and sighed as he pulled the object that was poking him in his pocket. It was a small sealing scroll He twirled it in his hands debating on whether he should open it or not. Neah shrugged as he p pulled on the string and unrolled the scroll in midair and set it down in front of him. Written on it was a storage seal and with a few hand signs he slammed his hand down on the paper in the center and a large cloud of white smoke engulfed him. As the smoke slowly dissipated neahs out line began to form in the smoke along with a very large object stood in front of him.
As the smoke cleared completely in front of neah stood a beautiful white piano The sunlight bouncing off the wood snow white finish made a large glare but it was a dazzling sigh. Neah opened the piano lid and the lid that covered the keys. The strange thing about this piano was that the keys were as black as night Normally the keys on a piano were white but keys were black and the black keys that are on the piano were colored white. Neah extended his finger and placed a little it of chakra and pressed in the music wrack were there was a small hidden seal. The seal suddenly grew larger and larger and suddenly out popped a holographic image of a strange set of symbols along a white back ground. Neah read the symbols and nodded his head in understanding.
To him the symbols were easy to understand he and his father had made them long ago but to everyone else it would be confusing. Neah cracked his head to the side and turned and looked at the boy. "Yes I was playing a tune for them now I'm going to play a song I was writing but never had a chance to show my father it's a pleasure to meet you as well Ryusuke." Neah felt comforted as he felt the boys hand on his shoulder. He ran his fingers across the keys and then begun to play a sweet soothing song and out came a angelic voice as he sung the melody to the song his voice echoing throughout the graveyard and even into the village a little bit.

Neah kept his eyes closed and continued to play the violin his mind set to finishing the song. He heard the gate open and close behind him and heard foot steps coming towards him again. Neah didn't want to lose his focus as he was playing the song with his mind and most importantly his heart. He heard a voice hims him two questions as he was playing his song. Neah pretended not to hear him for the moment. Neah finished the song and got down on his knees and placed the violin back in its case along with the bow carefully. Neah remained quiet as he close dup his violin case and leaned it up against the side of his parents grave.
Neah slowly opened up his grey eyes and looked into the purple eyed red haired stranger. "Why im alone out here you ask the answer to that is I'm always alone no family no friends and I'm out here visiting my parents todays the anniversary of my fathers death." Neah looked up into the sky and basked in the warmth of the sun on his face. He let out a sigh and looked back at the kid his own age and stared at him with his sad lonely eyes. " As for who taught me my dad did he was the greatest musician of the fire country." Neah felt a tear swell into his left eye and felt it drip down his side of his cheek. He quickly wiped it away with his hand as he sat down in front of his parents grave and adjusted the flowers so they were leaning righ against the tombstone. " Who are you though and why are you here btw Names neah walker."

Neah awoke from a nap on his couch a alarm was ringing in his head. Neah blinked a few times and yawned and looked at the clock on the wall. It was almost time for him to be on his first C rank mission. Neah stretched and got up from the couch. The house he was to report to wasn't very far from his own so he had plenty of time. Neah cracked his knuckles as he put away the shuriken and kunai away in his side bag. Neah then grabbed his Tanto and placed it in his sheath in his right side.
Neah placed his hands onto his face and patted his cheeks to get him excited and pepped up for his first ever mission. Neah walked out of his house wearing his trusts white trench coat and white dress shirt black pants and black shoes as well as a small pull over vest with buttons and his trusty red string tie. Neah looked over at the setting sun and smiled and began roof top jumping from building to building till he reached the designated house. He knocked on the door of the house and awaited the owner to answer the door. A minute went bye when the door was cracked open and a man was looking out of it at Neah. " You the ninja that's supposed to be protecting my house tonight?" the man shakily asked Neah as he looked at him. " Yes sir that's me I'm Neah Walker I will protect your house and its valuables with my life so don't worry."
The man opened the door for neah with a smile on his face and let out a sigh of relief. "You go somewhere and hide sir i'll patrol the grounds so rest easy." Neah then began to patrol the house his foot step barely making any noise as he walked around the house cautiously. Neah heard a door close and heard a click sound of a door locking. At least he knew the man would be safe for tonight.

Neah reached down into his case and pulled out his violin. He smiled as he rembered the good times he and his father had playing together. He slowly and carefully pulled it out of the case. The cold feel of the wood and the metal strings felt somewhat soothing Neah let out a sigh and put the violing into playing position as he got up onto his feet. " Hmm what to play got any requests dad, Hmmmm how about your favorite." a small guest of wind hit neah in the front of him his trench coat flapping in the breeze. " ill take that as a yes dad hehe."
Neah grabbed the bow for the violing out of the box and placed it on the center part of the violing strings. He took a few breaths and closed his eyes slowly. His father had taught him some excellent points about music. Like when your about to perform a song always clear your head and just focus on the music. Neah cleared his head and began to play a song that was joyful yet sad and soothing at the same time. His fingers ppressed against the strings keeping to the beat perfectly not missing a note at all. Neah played the song happily as if his father were standing before him.
Neah finished the song but kept his eyes closed. He was imagining his father was there in front of him talking to him and praising him about how he played the song perfectly. Neahs face changed into a smile as he listened to his father talk to him in his head. " I miss you everyday Mom and dad you have no idea not a day goes by when I don't think about you guys and what life could of been like.." Neah gulped down and chewed on a emotions and swallowed it trying to keep himself from crying.
Neah then heard the sound of foot steps and turne dhis head to the side and looked to see who it was. It was a boy about his own age and he was watching him. Neah stared at the boy back and in his eyes they showed how much pain and loneliness he was going through. He slowly turned his head back and stared at the grave. He let out a hand and patted the grave once. Neah then returned to playing the same song once again he always did like to have a audience when he played his violin after all he didn't get much critic since he was always alone.

Neah snored happiily in his bed as slept. His right leg was hangin out from the sheet and ocassionally twitching. Then neahs alamr clock woke him up. Neah slammed his hand down on the alarm clock and tossed it to the side. It was going to be one off those he had a feeling. Neah sighed and got out of bed and got a quick shower and brushed his teeth. Neah emerged form the shower a few minutes later and changed into his favorite clothes. Neah placed on his white dress shirt and black pants somewhat sadly his mind drifting off some were else. He placed his on his black button vest and grabbed his read string tie and mad a little bowtie. Finally he grabbed his white trench coat and placed it on himself along with his nice black shoes.
He walked down the stairs and made himself a piece of toast for breakfast. Neah wasn't feeling very hungrey today for today was the anniversary of his fathers death. Neah walked past a old photograph of him and his father. It was taken on the day Neah had entered the academy. His father had his hands on neahs shoulders and a proud look on his face. Neah placed his hand on the photograph and ran his hand across the glass in a loving way. He let out a sigh and grabbed his sword and head band and a small case and walked out the door slowly.
As he stepped out into the village the sky was clear and the sun was shining.He thought to himself 'Well at least its a nice day.' He walked down the street and smiled as he saw the happy people with there families. They were so lucky to have a family it made him envious. Neah stopped at a flower shop and bought some flowers for his fathers grave that he shared with neahs mother. Neah then payed for the flowers and left the shop carrying his case to the side . He soon reached the graveyard and walked around the path till he found his parents grave.
" Hey mom hey dad I miss you guys so much its so hard to believe that your really gone now dad but i know your with me in my heart." Neah placed his hand on the grave and cleared away some of the brush and weeds that obscuerred the writing on the grave. The grave read " In loving memory of Mana and Cecil walker may there love always be a shining beacon of hope to there son." neah placed his hand on the stone and patted it in a tender way as he closed his eyes. He reached over to the case and clicked it open infront of him.

Neah wiped a little drool out of the corner of his mouth just in time as the old man came out with his ramen. The old man sat it down infront of Neah gently and smiled " Here you kid eat up looks like youve been training hard today." Neah smiled at the old man and grabbed a pair of chopsticks. " Yeah been traiining really really hard today." Neah then bbegan to dig into his ramen happily. the taste hit his mouth and sent his taste buds into heaven. The noodles were cooked to perfection and the pork was perfect it had lots of flavor and juice in it. Neah slowly att the meal in his mouth and swallowed. He had a look on his face of pure happiness as he began to eat the ramen once again.
Neah didnt want the meal to end but sadly he was soon out of meat and broth and noodles. Neah placed the chop sticks over the bowel and patted his gut " Ahh yeah that hit the spot old man your a genious at making ramen." The old man chuckled and handed neah his bill. Neah payed the pill happily and felt some what re-energized. He gave a wave of goodbye to the old man and headed out to go and get his cuts cleaned up. After a good ten more minutes of walking neah reached home and he walked straight to the medicine cabinet and began to treat his cuts on his hands. He sighed as he finished and put the bandages away and sat down on his couch and fell over on his side and closed his eyes and fell into sleep quickly.

Neah hummed to himself as he awaited the his order to be cooked. Neah sat and drummed his fingers on the counter his mind some were else at the moemnt. Pretty soon it was going to be the anniversary of his fathers death. Neah still couldn't believe he was gone. it had seemed like yesterday his father was picking him up from the academy. He let out a low sigh a tear slowly forming up in his right eye. He quickly wiped the tear away He could smell the his lunch beign cooked and it made his mouth water even more as he waited on it to be brought out to him.
Neah sat down in the middle seat and grabbed a napkin and cleaned up the blood off his hands while he waited for the old man as he liked to call him to come and get his order. He wiped the blood onto the napkin and cleaned his hands off as best as he could. the bleeding was starting to stop slowly as he looked up and saw the old man. "Hey old man ill have the deluxe pork ramen today." The old man nodded happily and went to the kitchen and began to cook up neahs order.
Neah walked through the village heading in the direction of his favorite restaurant. He could feel the warm wet sensation running down his hands and knew his hands were bleeding. He chose to ignore it for now seeing as he was so close to the ramen stand. Neah panted as he finally reached the shop. the sweet smell of the ramen made his mouth water up in anticipation. He licked his lips happily and proceeded into the store.
Neahs fingers twitched as his muscle in his hands ached. He soon reached the village gate and began his way home. The sun was getting pretty high up now as he looked up. His stomach had given a growl of saying lunch time FEED ME. Neah patted his stomach with the palm of his hand. "Alright alright stomach I get it." Neah then begun his long walk to ichiraku ramen.
Neah sat down on the ground and went into a meditative stance and formed a hand sign. He closed his eyes as e gathered the chakra in his body and began to draw up on it and gain better control over it. Neah began to sweat as he drained a lot of his chakra trying to form it in his hands to make it visible. Neah fell on his back and lay panting on the ground. There was a slight blue aura on his hands but it quickly faded. as he looked at it. " Well that's good enough for today time to head on home." Neah slowly got back up and began to limp his way back home. Neah limped back to the village slowly a smile on his face his kncukles dripping blood onto the ground but not to much for serious blood loss. Even though he was hurt pretty bad he still had a fun time training.
Neah lay on the ground for who knows how long as he regained his strength. He slowly stood back up and stood on his two feet. ' This still isn't enough i need more training I need to get stronger I'm to weak as I am now." Neah turned towards the log and begun a long barrage of kicks and punches against the hard wood. his blood spraying onto the ropes as his fists collided with it. After a good forty minutes neah stopped attacking the log which hand many dents in it now.
