The Training Begins
***Three Years Later****
“Nintai, keep close to the target.” Temshi whispered into his mouthpiece.
“Got it,” Nintai replied, “Do you see anything up ahead to corner it?”
“One second, let me transfer over to Shi, and I’ll get back to you.” Temshi whispered back.
“Hey, Shi, can you pick anything up?” Temshi asked Shi.
“Yeah, and it smells horrible.” Shi replied, in a low growl, “It’s practically in front of me.”
“Okay, Nintai, and I will come to you.” Temshi replied, “Keep it in sight.”
“Got it.” Shi replied.
Temshi switched back over to Nintai now, “Shi has the target in sight; he’s keeping a close eye, until we get there.”
“Okay, I’ll meet you there.” Nintai whispered.
Nintai sprinted through the tree branches, all the way to where Shi was located. Nintai could barely make out the target, from the shadows of the forest.
“Nintai, use the new jutsu you Uncle taught you.” Temshi told her, “Right after I use my Shadow Control Jutsu.”
“Gotcha.” Nintai replied.
“Shadow Control Jutsu!” Temshi spoke loudly, while weaving a few hand signs.
Suddenly, hundreds of dark tentacles rose from the shadows, and shot directly towards the target.
The target let an earsplitting hiss be heard, and Nintai took that as her queue.
“8 Trigram: Art of the Chakra Box!” Nintai shouted.
Two orbs formed around her hands. She launched herself at the target, and started to blast the ground, in eight different spots, each time leaving a different symbol.
“Chakra Box, form!” Nintai shouted, making the final hand sign.
Without warning to the target, the symbols turned into brilliant beams of neon blue, closing in on the target. But the target was unable to move because of Temshi. When all the beams were surrounding the target, Nintai spoke again, “Chakra Box, connect!”
The beams started to turn, and fold in on each other, until, all that was left was a perfect square, with the target inside.
“Chakra Box, complete!” Nintai spoke, releasing her hand sign.
The brilliant blue beams became a less colorful blue, and the beams let out a low buzzing noise.
“We did it!” Shi let out a howl, “We finally caught that cat!”
“And in record time as well.” Temshi laughed, giving Shi a pat on the back.
“I’m not sure how long my Chakra Box will last, so we have to hurry back to Konohamaru-Sensei, fast.” Nintai wheezed it was obvious that jutsu was new to her, and took a lot of energy from her.
Nintai walked over to the box, and picked it up, seeing an old black cat, hissing at her. “Hi kitty.” Nintai replied with a smile.
“I hate cats.” Shi huffed, as they walked back to the village, “They smell horrible.
“That’s because you’ve grown up around dogs your whole life.” Temshi laughed.
As the squad walked to the gate of the village, Konohamaru-Sensei was waiting there for them, with his arms folded.
“You caught that stupid cat I see.” Konohamaru glared at the box, holding the cat inside.
“All thanks goes to Nintai, for using her new jutsu.” Temshi gave a toothy smile.
“That’s great!” Konohamaru smiled, giving Nintai a smile, and pat on the back, now let’s go get some ramen.
After the squad dropped the cat off at the mission station, and they went to go eat so ramen, everyone went home, except for Nintai, and Konohamaru.
“Your father wanted me to talk to you.” Konohamaru told Nintai, “There’s a special jutsu he wants me to each you.”
“Really?” Nintai was confused, all the jutsu she learned was from her Uncle Neji, and sometimes her mom would teach her a few tricks.
“Yes, so be at the Training Grounds an extra hour early tomorrow morning.” Konohamaru smiled as he walked away.
“Great.” Nintai huffed, as she made her way home.
