Like many mornings in Kemurigakure, fog hung thick to the ground; the remnants of the land of rain. Similarly, like many mornings, Tsume Yuki could be found out and about training this way or that. This morning she was training her cardio but taking a lap around the village. Breath burst in small spurts in the chilly morning air as the young Genin huffed and puffed her way through the jogging. Her glasses were slightly fogged, a poor job at hiding the girl's blazing blue eyes. Sweat and condensation matted her shaggy silver hair to her head, "It's only been an hour and I'm already sweating this bad? I'll just have to try harder!" the girl's small but slightly coarse voice peeped out between deep breaths. She thoroughly enjoyed these early morning runs. The village was quiet for the most part and the air was cool enough to run in but not too cold as to burn her lungs, it was one of the many miracles that came with living in Kemurigakure. Another one of these miracles was simply waking up and getting to go for her jog. So many other shinobi, people, mothers, would never get that experience again. That was why she trained so hard and lived so fast. At any time it could all be taken away.

She began to throw in a jab here, a hook there, another layer of training to her run. She got lost in the rhythm, entranced by the movements. Her body just did what it knew to do while her mind wandered. What do I do against people like those twins or Jurojin? All of my weapons just bounce off their skin like they mean nothing. I know that's not true, ninja tools are the superior way to fight, why else would they exist? I just need...something to help me cut through those defenses. Wind is good at cutting through things, or lightning, but I don't have any elements like that. If I just knew how it worked, maybe I could apply it to my normal chakra? Ugh, why did I have to be born so talentless?

The sound of a second set of feet caught the young Yuki's ears, her head perking up from it's slightly lowered position. She caught sight of a figure ahead of her, but mainly the smallest glint of metal that shone with each step. It looked as if it were a forehead protector worn around the tall, white-haired figure's leg. Jogging past him, she cut her eyes down to discern if what she thought was true. Turns out, it was indeed a Kemurigakure insignia! She jogged a bit further in front of him and then turned on the spot, "I don't think I've ever seen you around, but you have a headband just like me, so that makes us both shinobi. I'm Tsume Yuki, nice to meetcha!" The girl flashed a toothy half-grin as she removed her glasses to wipe the lenses free of the fog. She was always ready to meet new people and make new friends, but deep down she was really only looking for a sparring partner. Running was well and good, but fighting, that was really a miracle.

There was no rain today, but instead there was a thick blanket of fog that filled the village. Sora took each step carefully at a steady pace, trying to match his breathing with his pace. He wasn't sure if there was actually any merit in doing so, but the exercise was fun, and there was always a possibility that it could help him in the future. Whenever there wasn't pouring rain, he loved to spend his time outside and experiment with different ways to utilize the wind and air around him. Sora could see each breathe in front of him, and as he walked, he would focus his vision on trying to make sure each breath cloud was the same size. Relatively unaware of his spatial positioning, he almost didn't notice the jogging girl approach him until she was already in front of him.

"I don't think I've ever seen you around, but you have a headband just like me, so that makes us both shinobi. I'm Tsume Yuki, nice to meetcha!"

Taken slightly aback, Sora would involuntarily raise his eyebrows and take a step backwards in shock. When did she sneak up on him? Or maybe he was the one sneaking? Eh, who was to say? Sora would tap the metal on his headband that was wrapped around his leg and glance down to it with a small smile. He would then look back up to Tsume with a warmer smile. The kunoichi wiped at her glasses as she caught her breath. It seemed that she had been training before she ran into him. There weren't many shinobi he was familiar with that wore glasses, so it intrigued Sora immediately what kind of person she was. "You're right, I don't think we've had the pleasure to meet yet. My name is Sora Uchiha, how are you this fine morning?"

Uchiha, the name carried with it a lot of things for a lot of people, for Tsume it carried jealousy. She wasn't born to any prestigious clan, gifted with any powerful kekkei genkai or even gifted with an element at all. The Uchiha clan were full of people born with all of those things. A small pang of want hit her in the gut. It wasn't that she was unhappy with her mother and father, in fact it was the farthest thing from the truth, but it would be nice to have something that made her special. Uru was an Uchiha too, and she was a prodigy. Jurojin had his steel skin, and those twins could wear each other like backpacks (still gross, still hated it) but all she had were weapons. That's why she would find a way to become the best with said weapons though. If she couldn't be born someone special, she could become someone special! It just took small steps, one after the other, that's all it took.

"I'm doing great! The air is just cool enough to run in without it hurting to breathe so that's a great day for me! What about you, Sora, how's it? Most people aren't out and about this early so I wasn't expecting to run into anyone, but that's the great thing about life. You never know what's going to happen until it does!" She laughed, her glasses flashing faintly in the dim early morning light. She reached down to her weapons pouch on her leg and from under it pulled out a small folded up rag. She began to wipe the sweat from her brow and hair, "Say, do you have any elements? Wind or lightning preferably, I'm looking for someone with either so I can learn from them."

Tsume was totally right about the moist air; it really was easier to breathe when working out! Sora would tilt his head in fascination as she continued to speak optimistically about the day. She was either an incredibly happy person, or an incredibly sad one trying to cover it up. He didn't know the girl at all and couldn't tell if the emotions were real or fake. Maybe he would be able to find out by spending some time with her? Tsume's laugh was contagious as she asked him what he was doing out here, before following it up by inquiring about his elemental prowess. With a chuckle he would respond to her first question first. "I'm out here because I also like being out in the fog. Though I think I prefer a nice sunny day instead. A little rare, but that's what makes them so nice." With a smile and then a look to the sky, Sora would answer Tsume's element question with a question of his own. "It must be your lucky day then. I use wind techniques primarily. Are those your elements? Is that why you're looking for someone with them?"

Sunny days were a rarity in the village, but as Sora said, that's what made them a miracle. She nodded her head in agreement and then pumped her fist in excitement at his next few words. "Nah, I don't have any elements but I know that Wind and Lightning make things sharper. I'm a weapons specialist but lately I keep running into people who can harden their skin and my weapons just bounce off them, really frustrating actually. I was hoping that if I ran into someone with either Wind or Lightning they could help me figure out how to make my own chakra sharper, or at least stronger. I believe that ninja tools are the strongest option for a shinobi, and I want to prove it! I just...don't know how yet." Her eyes turned downward as she finished her small speech. She did believe in what she said, and where there was a will, there was a way. At least that's how the saying went.

"Would you show me how it works, Sora? I can't make fire, shoot lightning, or move earth, but I try harder than anyone else. If I just knew a little more about how things work, I know I could figure something out. Then I could cut through those twin's rock skin and next time we fight I'll kick their buns right off their smug bodies!"

She wanted to study other elements to improve her own bukijutsu fighting style? Sora raised an eyebrow at the idea before she finished the rest of her story. The girl shared her frustration with him and elaborated on her plan to become stronger. She definitely carried seeds of doubt somewhere within her, but Sora could tell that those seeds would end up growing flowers of hope instead of despair. If he could help blossom that hope within her then he would try his best. Sora would give her a simple nod with a more serious expression on his face. If she was serious about this, then he wouldn't take her feelings lightly. "I can try to describe the basics of how wind techniques work to you, but without possessing the ability to use it, I'm not sure how it will help you. Do you have anything you want to see in particular?

A toothy half-grin spread across the girl's face as Sora agreed to help her out. She knew it didn't make much sense and would probably bear no fruit, but it couldn't hurt to ask right? She just needed a nudge in the right direction, that's all. Reaching toward her pouch again, the girl placed her small rag back from whence it came and flipped open the carrying pouch. She pulled out a kunai and flipped it, catching the blade deftly between her fingers and held the pommel of it out to the Uchiha. "Could you show me how you do Chakra Flow with wind? That's probably the only thing I can come close to replicating or at least breaking down to a simpler state that my chakra could work with." If she were being honest she wanted to see everything the other shinobi could do. It was something she wouldn't ask obviously, but perhaps after his display she would ask for a spar, to see more of Sora's wind techniques with her own eyes.

Should he take the kunai from her, she would step closer to him, her eyes fixated on the blade and ears attentive to every word he said. She had only met with her sensei once and it had been on a relatively short mission, so she hadn't had much learning from others under her belt. Her father told her some things about the basics, but he was only a Chuunin himself. That reminded her, "Say, Sora, I never asked, but are you a Genin or are you higher ranked? I'm just a Genin myself, for now! The Chuunin Exams are coming up though and you better believe I'm gonna win it!"

Chakra flow? Yeah that would be easy enough. Using his element with weapons could possibly help her if she observed how he did it. Sora would pat himself down, looking for a ninja tool on him, but found that there weren't any in his pockets. He would look sheepishly up to find that the girl had seemingly read his mind, and was already extending one for him to use. With a smile on his face, Sora would take the kunai in his hand and begin to channel chakra into it. Tsume would take a step closer to him as he did so as she asked him what rank of shinobi he was. So close! Sora's pale face would quickly turn into a bright red as he answered her question. "I'm a genin, though I won't be participating in the chuunin exams. I just graduated from the academy recently, and I'd like more experience first. More importantly though..." Sora would take a small step back from the girl. "I need a little bit more space. I wouldn't want to hurt you if something went wrong after all." This was a bit of a white lie of course. There was no danger to the kunoichi in being that close to him as he showed her the chakra flow. He had never been that close to a girl before and the experience was way to distracting.

Once he had collected his nerves, he would reapply his wind chakra to the outside of the kunai. "When applying wind chakra, the focus is to make the blade as sharp as possible. Running the currents of wind chakra up and down the blade to ensure an edge that can cut even the strongest of materials. That's how you would use it with ninja tools at least. I prefer to fight more evasively with pushes and pulls of wind instead."

When Sora took a step back, she pulled herself up from the leaning position she had found herself in. She furrowed her brow and pursed her lips for a single confused moment before chalking it up to social ineptitude. That was okay by her, you didn't need to be a butterfly to make friends. "Well that's too bad, I'll just have to win in your spot then." She was fairly certain that Wind Chakra Flow wouldn't cause her any harm in close proximity unless Sora actively willed it, but she acquiesced to his request and took on exaggeratedly large step back, grinning her trademark toothy half-grin.

When the white-haired Uchiha began to explain how his element worked when applied to weapons. He said you run currents against each other and the Yuki's brow furrowed deeper. "If you run the currents against each other...it would what, grind the weapon sharper like a whetstone, right? I wonder if I could do that without Wind? Probably not, but it's a start at least!" She snapped her fingers and threw her hand into the air, "I think I might have something! Maybe...at least an idea of an idea, but you said you like fighting evasively? That's the exact opposite of me, I'm a mid to close range fighter myself. Probably comes with the elements verse no elements situation we find ourselves in." Taking the comically large step forward again, she held out a hand waiting for Sora to return her weapon. Should he do so she would twirl the tool in her hand expertly. A flash of lenses and she asked the question that was bound to come up the moment the two shinobi crossed paths.

"I had a good workout going and don't want to lose my heat, what do you say to a spar, Sora?"

The fluctuation from self-doubt to confidence was an interesting change that Sora enjoyed in this girl. Her smile just as contagious as her laugh, when she snapped her fingers with an idea, the albino uchiha immediately wanted to hear it. Was this what they called natural charisma? Tsume proposed a sparring exercise where she would try to attack with her tools while he defended using his wind. She would once again step forward into his personal space with an outreached hand. He would extend his right hand to hold hers, but would stop halfway; realizing that she was just asking for her kunai back. Sora's face turned into a tomato. He would retract his right hand and extend his left hand that held the kunai so that she could take it from him. Once she had it, she would twirl it expertly as she took a battle pose. Sora would scratch the back of his head with a faint smile on his face. "Alright I'll do my best. But please try go easy on me. I'm really not much of a fighter." He would then take several steps backwards to increase the distance between them. With her confidence to win the chuunin exams, she must have some high combat ability. Sora took a deep breath and began to focus intently on her chakra signature; his nervous face suddenly replaced with one that was much more cool and calculating. "We can start whenever you're ready."

As she reached out her hand to get her kunai back, Sora held out his opposite hand, as if trying to hold hers. Both of the Genin's hands retracted as blushes bloomed across both of their faces. When he extended his other hand, she hastily grabbed her weapon back before falling back into the timeline established earlier. The Uchiha didn't seem to have his heart in the spar but agreed to humor her anyway. Part of Tsume wanted to just say forget it and either just talk with her newfound companion or turn and get back to her jogging. Meeting someone's passion without any of your own was something the bespectacled girl couldn't get behind. That part of her was beat out by the more competitive side of her personality. She did want to see what the big fuss about elements was. If she could beat Wind, the element that was supposed to make weapons sharper, then surely she could make her weapons sharper than wind, that was just science.

As the Uchiha increased the distance, Tsume took a deep breath and noted the surroundings. There was a wooden fence around 15m away from them to their right, the area itself was open save for some trees and bushes that sparsely populated the area. It would be a good place for both of them to battle, plenty of open space for Sora to maneuver, but not a lot of things to hide behind either. As he turned to face her, his demeanor seemed to change. This wasn't the first time that Tsume had seen someone act differently once a fight had began, but she was not one of those people. Her body jumped into a rhythmic dance. One leg dipped backwards while the rest of the body leaned opposite and then elegantly swapped to her other leg dipping behind her. It was the ginga, the starting position of Ittei no Ugoki, Tsume's preferred fighting style. After sinking into her ready stance the girl's hands shot down to her weapons pouches and produced four kunai, two in each hand. Flashes of steel filled the air as she began to juggle the weapons, tossing them with small flicks of her wrist. The knives twirled end over end in a seamless and unending dance matched by the girl's ginga. A fight was nothing but a dance, two performers playing a game and Tsume had a reputation for winning games.

The girl took off toward Sora closing the distance relatively quickly. She wasn't going full speed as she wasn't sure what the Uchiha's reaction time would be, but as she approached she flicked two of the kunai which seemed to almost suspend in the air. She preformed a cartwheel, kicking one of the floating kunai forward as she did so. When coming up from the Au, she snapped her body forward, her back hand catching the first kunai as it flicked the one it was currently holding as the front hand met with the kicked kunai, catching it pommel out, attempting to drive it into Sora's shoulder in an overhand strike.

The kunoichi’s body began to jump side to side in a strange rhythm that Sora hadn’t seen before. Was this some type of dance? There were certainly many fighting styles that derived their origin from dance, so maybe that was her go-to way of fighting? As she side stepped back and forth, Tsume would whip out multiple kunai and toss them into the air in front of her. Sora would immediately begin forming hand seals and channeling wind chakra into his chest. The only way he would be able to combat her weapons would be to blow all of her weapons away. Once Tsume began to dash towards him, before she could begin her cartwheel maneuver, Sora would exhale a large burst of wind towards her. Although he was just blowing out of his mouth, the chakra would enfuse with the air in front of him; causing a huge torrent of air to push against Tsume’s momentum. If it was true that she didn’t have any elements, then it was possible she would simply fly backwards; helpless against the force of nature.

Too slow, I held back too much! The wind began it's approach, interrupting her own. Reaching back behind her she unraveled the slightly larger than average scroll on her back, the second of it's seals showing. In a poof of smoke a gunbai was released. The girl planted her feet mid ginga and a look of complete determination etched across her features. This was it, this was the moment she was waiting for. Wrists flicked, leaving her kunai twirling in the air as small hands reached out to catch the freed gunbai and with a sweep as fast, precise, and powerful as the young kunoichi could muster, she met the wind with her weapon. For a moment nothing happened other than her feet slightly shifting backward from the force of the Fuuton technique, but then with one final push the girl swept the attack aside. Sweat sheened on her forehead as her half-grin displayed itself in full force. "More, just like that! Hit me with everything you've got!"

A second flick of the wrists and the gunbai joined the kunai in their aerial performance. Her hands deftly swapped from tool to tool, juggling the weapons without skipping a beat as her feet picked up the ginga the moment her defense had proven itself. The girl would spin to the side while shooting forward, a diagonal movement toward Sora, her foot would follow the spin and attempt to hook around the heel of the Uchiha's lead foot. If successful Tsume would pull her leg up, sweeping the front leg of her opponent out.

Wind bombarded the kunoichi as it was released from the albino uchiha's mouth and she was blown back a couple of feet. Seeming to have a solution for every attack, Tsume would pull out a giant fan to use to counteract the wind attack. Once the wind had stopped and she was able to move properly again, she would dash side to side in her ginga while juggling her weapons. It was mainly a blur before the genin's untrained eyes, but he could get the gist of her fighting style. With speed and precision, Tsume had moved directly into Sora's personal space and hooked her leg around his. She got me. He would think with a smile, before he toppled backwards. As his back hit the ground he would exhale sharply as the wind was knocked out of him. "I really don't think you have anything to worry about regarding your own fighting ability. But I can continue to indulge you. I hope this will be helpful." He would form a couple of quick hand seals before extending his hands directly towards her torso. Wind chakra would explode like a cannon and launch her into the air away from him. As she fell through the air, he would twirl his fingers and send a small tornado underneath Tsume to cushion her fall.
He would then take the time to stand back up and dust off his pants. She was strong without a doubt, but having no elemental abilities was a real negative for any shinobi of the modern era.

Foot connected against heel and Tsume lifted her knee up as hard as she could while her hand pushed against Sora's body. The Uchiha was lighter than she imagined and he fell to his back without much resistance. Her hand caught the nearest weapon before a seamless flick of her wrist suspended the tool in the air again. Eyes caught sight of the first forming of handsigns and the girl reached into her weapons pouch. As the handseal completed she would throw a smoke bomb at the dirt in one fluid motion. Sora's hands would shoot out at Tsume's own met together, a single seal forming. When the air shot through the smoke it met with not Tsume, but only her weapons, sending gunbai and kunai flying backwards. Out of the smoke a trail could be seen leading to the right as Tsume flickered back into being, landing perfectly into her ginga. Her grin was as present as it always was and she couldn't help but feel the adrenaline really kicking in now. Her bespectacled eyes followed the trail of her weapons, making sure she would be able to retrieve them after the spar.

Her opponent stood and wiped the dirt off himself. Tsume couldn't help but notice that even now Sora seemed so nonchalant about things. Did he ever take anything seriously? The girl wouldn't wait to ponder it however, instead she pulled out spools of wire from her weapons pouch and stretched out a generous length before weaving it around her fingertips. The wire ended with five loops, three meters in length in each hand. "You know, Tsume means claw, let me show you mine!" With that terrible pun out of the way, the girl dashed forward, twirling her body once before lashing out with ten chakra coated "claws" of wire fanning from right to left. She couldn't help but feel weird about the encounter. She and Sora were quite possibly the two most opposite fighters you could stick together, would they really learn much from one another? She hoped so, this was more than just a spar to her though. This was the beginning of her next small step. The first step towards the next miracle. Everything was leading up to this, she had to try her best!

So it seems you don’t just use bladed weapons huh? Sora was surprised to see the kunoichi throw a smoke bomb at him as a distraction, as he unleashed his torrent of wind. With the bomb as a diversion, she was able to escape and prepare yet another set of ninja tools. Long metal wires formed around the girl’s fingers, as claws seemed to form around her. She would reference her namesake in a pun as she charged toward him with gusto. Sora wondered if she created that technique specifically to make that statement and he would smile at the idea. Maybe he should make some sort of technique having to do with the sky? It sounded like a fun exercise, but there was no time fo that today. Once again Sora would take a deep breathe; infusing his wind chakra in with the air in his lungs. He would wait until Tsume was close and then unleash a funnel of air to blow her back once again. If she tried to dodge, he would simply continue to blow and follow her movement with his head. This gust of wind would look similar to Tsume as the one he had used previously, but would have more significant power behind it. Using a fan without any techniques behind it would most likely not be a suitable defense. Would her claws be able to reach him?

Distance closed quickly as the girl twirled her claws toward her opponent. Another deep breath from Sora alarmed her for what was to come. Shit, another Wind attack. The girl spun on the spot as the wires extended from her fingers and formed a kind of barrier around her. The wind would hit the wire and the two would fight against each other for a moment. The force of it almost pushed Tsume back but she wouldn't give her ground to something as weak as an element. She had to prove herself, she had to prove that even without wind or water she could still fight. As long as she had her weapons, she had the ability to win.

As the clash would eventually end in a stalemate, Tsume would end her spin back into her ginga, left foot darting backwards before she took a hard step forward and then spun her body as hard as she could. Her heel would whip around her like a golf swing, the force of it would be felt even if Sora were to dodge. In the world of Ittei no Ugoki the Meia Lua was the king of kicks, and among it's practitioners Tsume was the queen. The power of the kick came from the centrifugal force of her body's spin. If the first should miss from a dodge the kick would dip down and then whip around again for a second attack almost instantaneously. The true power of the Meia Lua was how fluid the technique was whether it hit or missed, but that was the truth for all of Tsume's attacks. She did not possess an element, but she moved like water, had the burning passion of fire, and was as unmovable as earth. She didn't need elements, she already embodied them.

As the whirlwind erupted from the genin's mouth, he noticed with shock that the girl's claws seemed to be able to block the assault! They must have had some sort of chakra flow coursing through them. Tsume didn't stop her assault there, deciding to try getting up in Sora's personal space yet again. Why must they always get so close? He thought frantically as he swung his body backwards; just barely dodging her first kick. A wave of pressure emanated from the missed blow, but before Sora could regain his balance, a second kick collided with his ribcage. Precious air would be knocked out of Sora's lungs as he was knocked off his feet by the blow and sent flying into a nearby bush. The shrubbery cushioned the fall, but instead his pale skin was speckled with tiny scratches from the twigs. Sora would chuckle a bit, causing pain to shoot through his side. He would quickly put a hand to his ribs to comfort them as he lay in the bush, staring up at the foggy sky. "You're really strong you know? I don't think you need to worry about not being able to use an element." He would struggle for a second before sitting up with a smile, and looking at the bespectacled kunoichi. "I think you'll make a great chuunin. Kick some butt at the exams!"

The first kick missed, but like all things in life it was just a step toward the next event. The second kick managed to land and Tsume felt the solid impact of her heel into Sora's side; for a moment she wished she had held back more. The impact caused the Uchiha to soar backwards into a nearby bush, small scratches littering his frame as thorns and twigs met flesh. Tsume finished the rotation of her body and upon seeing what had happened her eyes widened, "Oh! I'm sorry!" She ran forward, digging into her weapons pouch and producing a bottle as she skid to a halt beside Sora. She popped the cap easily and shook a few pills out into her free hand before offering them to the taller Uchiha. "I have a few extra medical pills if you need them? I bought a lot in preparation for the Exams and I doubt I'll use them all."

Her attempts at help were met with praise and her usual toothy half-grin was replaced by genuine wonder. Lips parted widely in a smile ear-to-ear. "You mean that?" She asked breathlessly. Her track record hadn't been great so far, having only fought people who could harden their skin to the point of her Taijutsu and Bukijutsu not working on them so she was naturally hesitant to just accept Sora's words.

After knocking Sora back into the bush, Tsume seemed shocked at the result of her attack. Reaching into her bag, she ran up to the injured genin and skid to a halt in front of him. Apologizing, she handed him a couple of pills that seemed to be medicine. The way that she was acting made Sora believe that the girl might not know the limits to her potential. She hit harder and moved faster than most people he had encountered before, and she seemed to be the same age as him! His pale arm would extend out and grab a pill, as he stood to his feet. “Thank you.” He would say with a smile. Tsume looked shocked after hearing Sora’s praise and asked him if he really meant what he said. Before he could answer, Sora realized that there were only a few inches separating the two of them. She stood in front of him and the bush lay behind him. With nowhere to physically move, he would avert his gaze so that he wouldn’t be staring directly at her. “Too close!” he would murmur under his breath, as his pale complexion turned a bright rose. “Of course I mean it.” Sora took a deep breathe and would turn his pink face to meet hers. “You’ve proven to me that you can be just as strong as any other shinobi without using any elements.” Feeling a bit more at ease in front of the girl, Sora broke into a wide smile and his pink complexion began to return to normal. “And you can trust me! I’ve run into some really strong people. You definitely fit right in the list!”

Almost making out the words, it seemed that Sora again had an aversion to being close to her. Her eyes widened for a moment as she realized what it must be. She had been jogging for a while before running into him and built up a sweat, did she...did she smell? Oh no, I know I put on deodorant today, there's no way I sweat through it already! She racked her brain for a moment in an attempt to figure out away to sniff her pits without making it obvious she was doing so. Despite her best efforts she could not figure out a way, so instead, she just took a step back and smiled awkwardly.

"I really appreciate that, Sora. It's hard sometimes to stay confident about what I'll be capable of with just my fists and weapons. I won't stop trying though, and you gotta do the same yeah? You gotta go to the Exams next year so I can cheer you on!" She laughed, her slightly coarse voice lilting with each haha. She held up a finger and then ran off to collect her weapons that had been sent flying away from Sora's Wind Techniques. Meticulously, she placed them into their proper spot in her weapons pouch or sealed into her scroll before returning to the Uchiha's side, but not too close.

"Did you have any plans for the rest of the day? I was going to go get some breakfast after my workout but that spar was probably good enough."

The young kunoichi took a step back, seeming to understand Sora’s discomfort with her being in his personal space. Seeming a bit humble while she spoke, Tsume thanked the uchiha genin for his words while admitting that it was sometimes hard to stay confident. That was something that Sora could definitely agree with and he would nod as she spoke. She spoke of doing her best at the exams and even hoped that he would take part next year. It was an interesting idea, but he never really thought about being promoted or working too hard to improve himself. While it was quite obvious that Tsume had strong goals to become the best and prove her own self worth; that was simply not a spark that existed within Sora. He had trained so he could graduate and escape his father’s grasp. Now that he had gotten the slightest freedom, he was just glad that he could walk around like this. Striving for something great like being promoted was out of his league. “Maybe one day.” he would say with a chuckle and a smile. There was no need to tell this girl his life story. It was possible that he would compete, but definitely not any time soon. She then asked him if he had any plans and that she was going to get some breakfast. “I would love to join if that’s alright. It turns out sparring works up an appetite.” Sora would say with a grin.

Maybe? Maybe wasn't what she was expecting. She thought everyone had a similar drive to herself, that there was always something out there that they wanted to achieve. Sora just wanted to achieve something else, yeah, that was it! She chuckled along with him, his laugh slightly contagious at how relaxed and carefree it was. Wind fit him, she thought. It moved where it wanted to. If something got in it's way, it just moved around it. She didn't know Sora entirely, but sparring with someone was a good way to get to know them, she thought at least. She would keep her assumptions about him to herself, but she couldn't help but think; If Sora embodied his element in his personality, what did she portray? She had no elements herself, so was her personality truly all her own? She would have to think about that kind of thing later, probably when she was older and knew better. She gave the Uchiha a playful glance and ran off toward the diner, laughing.

"Race you there!"

With their spar completely finished and their stomachs rumbling, the two kemuri genin left the area to refuel. Sora hadn't planned on exerting himself like this and was excited to get some food inside him. Tsume grinned at him and began to race to the diner, challenging him to keep up. With a little sigh, Sora would smile and chase after the girl. "Wait up! I don't know where we're going!" he would say as he laughed. Tsume was definitely interesting and he enjoyed the positive energy that she exuded. It was nice to make new friends.
