    Broken Record Club
    Kimiko blushes a little at her flirty movements. But doesn't say anything. She is not experienced at this. At all, and doesn't know what to say in this situation. She wished people were easy to understand, like jutsu or fuinjutsu. Yuyuyu shrugs and says
    "Ah. Very well. We'll just go find the person to book it then,"
    After asking the barmaid who is playing next and how long until they are scheduled to come on stage, Yuyuyu leads them away and whispers
    "Okay, time to go find the next band thats going to play backstage, knock them out and take their place. Which means we're on a timer, namely however long this band is still playing. Got that?"
    "Za wheh wha...?"
    Kimiko answers back a little....distracted, Yuyuyu taps her on the shoulder.
    "oh yeah, of course. backstage. knock out. limited time. What else is new?"
    " Sigh. Of course you've never been in this situation before Kimi-hime, and really staring at the barmaid? Kind of bad for an heiress, don't you think? Not supposed to play for the other team."
    "Sh-shut up! There is gene manipulation research, I'll figure something out!
    Why wouldn't there be, everyone in the Shinobi nations want to unlock the secrets of kekkei genkai after all.
    "Lets just go."
    They sneak their way backstage, find the next band to play and try to knock them from out behind, then drag them into a closet and stuff them in the unceremoniously so that disguise jutsu into them. Do they encounter any obstacles to doing this?

    Meanwhile with Jirou:
    He is arrived at the laboratory. As a fuinjutsu user and one of the few ones that isn't particularly attached to his clan quest since he cannot participate in it, he makes himself useful here, researching fuinjutsu to make the village stronger. The current big project was those cursed seal transformations. Most of the example subjects were not even humans, but rats trained to be able to activate the seals. currently there was still some dangers to these seals and thus was using the rats to figure out how minimize them for safe use for humans. sure there are some biological differences between rats and humans that needed to be accounted for when translating them from rat to human use, but that can be solved once one figures out the safe or safest seal for rats, and as with all things in science, from one can be extrapolated another thing- if one can find a safe cursed seal transformation for rats, one can do for humans. It simply the most ethical way to go about it. the alternative was using humans and he was not a mad scientist.

    Of course he still felt bad when the rats died, they were so cute and easily trained for various tricks and uses, but they weren't sapient so it was best for everyone involved. The last cursed seals had too high a mortality rate to be acceptable for human use for his standards. Lets try and adjust that to be lower shall we? the work will be long and tedious but it was worth it. He turns on the radio to the Broken Record's frequency. Their music a good way to liven up otherwise tedious work and the rats got some enjoyment too.

    Uasgi has rolled her eyes. "You just got to stop worrying on nonsense, and work on being a ninja.' she said with a groan, and pushed forward.

    In the backstage room there were four teens- "The Bye Bye Kitties".
    twin sisters from the Komoro clan, Dai and Doi, which used their ears as part of the costumes. Both wore heavy rimmed glasses and looked quite cute. and their companion Saburo, buff guy with a scar over his face, which made his kitty costume look grimmdark somewhat. And another guy, bishi-ish with purple eye and dazzling eyes.
    They were black and pink kitty outifts which were supposed to be ironic with logo https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRnaqFMc4pMhwGQUMszcRKTxR33OiKUP 52alUTGxuYux9eVmQDA


    Yuyuyu should know, that Dai and Doi both dropped the academy because of some family drama. Their friend Saburo failed on porpuse at the exams to join them. They were honestly, an annoyance for the village. They did had shinobi trainings, but they used for crime.
    Lately a citizen with talent for music has conviced them to try a musical career. Guy called Yukio.

    They were thugs, though, they were friendly unless they wanted to rob you.

    "Hello!" the twins said cheerfully.
    Saburo looked away shyly. Yukio smiled. "Greetings, fair ladies. How may we assist you."

    Fake Fan Plan: Go!
    Yuyuyu and Kimiko start squeeing looking at them and going
    "oh my kami! Its theeeeem! the Bye Bye kitties!"
    "We're such big fans! We know your still indie, but you play like, the BEST music , definitely deserve to be more popular!"
    "Anyone who doesn't think that are like totally hipsters who don't know anything about stuff?"
    "Because if your like, a fan, you should like totally love it when your thing is like, liked by everyone? I never get those elitists who want it like, all for themseeeelves."
    "I know right? It just doesn't make any sense gurl."
    "people like that are just jerks, never listen to them, all that talk about "selling out" is bull. musicians are people too and need to pay the bills, am I right?"
    "Totally! Can we just like get your autographs...?"
    They hold pieces of paper seemingly excited to see them, But actually this Yuyuyu and Kimiko are just genjutsu clones created by Basic Clone Jutsu while the real ones are sneaking up behind them to knock them out, as the Bye Bye Kitties eyes were turned towards this way therefore they needed some distraction to hold their attention while they tried to sneak attack them.

    Drop out of the academy are tricky to deal with. You can't be sure at what level are they, and their improve in skills come from practical exprience rather then true trainings.

    Yukio eagerly has agreed to sign an authrograph on a piece of paper, while Usagi akwardly. "Y-yeah! I also know all of your songs! You can test me!"


    Saburo were distracted, but the Dai&Doi Komoro sisters, have dissapeared, leaving black hello kitty plushies instead.
    Sure, they have ashamed the Komoro clan, but they weren't too far from being good Genins.
    Each of them learned single C ranked technique of their clan- Dai has used the Heart's Voice, squeaking, vibrating sound waves to Yuyuyu's body- making her nerval system to react as is she was ashamed. She might think she actually is.
    Doi were more brutal and send Sound Scythe at Kimiko- both sisters from the door to the stage.
    Usagi has jumped on Kimiko to push ofer of the Sound Scythe's path- which has cutted the wall, with splatter of concrete


    Yukio gasped, and walked back. 'What is going on?!'

    Yuyuyu
    Loses an action as she tenses up from the attack, feeling embarrassed out of nowhere.
    I'm so embarrassed!! Wait... why am I embarrassed?
    The first rule of genjutsu defense training was to ask yourself why you were suddenly feeling an emotion out of nowhere, during a hectic situation. One cannot truly be devoid of all emotion, but one can take a second to examine whether there was a reason behind the emotion or feeling, as genjutsu fooled with your senses and emotions and made you feel things out of nowhere to turn off your higher brain functions and make you act on instinct or impulse. Therefore the first step was always to figure out whether you had good reason to feel something, the second step was whether the reason you feel it is likely to happen or be real as sometimes the illusions use the shock to make you forget that, if both the reason and the probability of it happening were plausible, it was probably real, but genjutsu masters while rare were all about making things plausible. She puts her hands together and goes "Kai". dispelling the feeling. A technique to messes with her emotions like that was exactly the kind of genjutsu she was trained to defend against. Unfortunately, she cannot do more than that given the amount of time she has.

    Kimiko:
    She gets out of way thanks to Usagi and quickly assesses the situation: Dai and Doi were the ones actively fighting right now, Saburo was a bit slow to react, but Yukio was a civilian. Therefore while the other three were stronger, Yukio was the one to knock out first since he cannot contribute in a fight and thus the worst thing he could do to screw them over, was run and let everyone else know, thus bringing down the entire club on them, while the other three had shinobi training and thus more likely to let their pride in their own strength keep them here fighting. So she unsheathes her sword and it extends into a strong paper whip, lashing out quickly and pulling him close to her so she can knock him out with one quick strike-considering this was a ninja club, this is probably one of the luckier things that could happen to him- then gets into a stance to deal with the rest, flicking her weapon out to crack it like a whip.
    "Don't kill them. It won't look good if we do, even if they are criminals."
    They are apart of a military after all, with rules governing whether your given the permission or the requirement to kill, and society generally wants minor criminals like these thrown in jail or doing community service instead. While one should not hesitate to kill, Restraint is also a shinobi virtue. That and she remembers the man she killed last night. Despite all she was taught....she does not want to repeat the experience.

    Usagi
    She gotten up quickly from Kimiko, a bit embaressed.
    "Oh. finally, this stupid mission put a real test!" she place her weight on one cane, while she send the other cane to smack Saburo's face- but he his raised his arm in time to parry it- but groaned in pain from the hit, so Usagi used this, and jumping, sent the next cane at him and also pounding him.
    It seemed Saburo were out.

    "This is our show. Don't force me to cut your pretty nose off." Dai said, pulling pair of kunais. "We worked hard for this, you little snotty girls, have no right to take this from us!"



    Doi, seemed more brutal. "Don't try talk sense to them,Doi-chan. They are dogs without agency of their own." she prepared another sound schythe.

    Kimiko:
    Kimiko whips her paper-whip forward to try and wrap around one of Doi's wrist to try and pull her hands apart so she can't use her Sound Scythe jutsu again. Technically, it is possible with certain techniques and methods to use and shape chakra without hand signs using their own wills- Kimiko's own Origami-No-Tsurugi she is using right now is a good example- but doing so without proper training is like handling raw electricity without the knowledge of an electrician: your more likely to injure or kill yourself or your allies than actually do anything useful. Therefore more most ninjas use the hand signs to pre-shape the chakra, much like a programmer entering code, its technically more complicated and requires more rote memorization and book learning, but its safer than letting your concentration lapse with a chidori and getting shocked as a result. Kimiko's sword now in the form of a whip, is a similar insulating tool, much like the Seven Swords of the Mist or Fuinjutsu. Having a medium to separate you from dangerous elemental energy is generally a good idea. Chakra is quite simply, dangerous to handle in large amounts.
    Thus making sure the other side can't form hand signs is a good first move. If she succeeds, she'll then try to retract the paper whip while its still clinging to her arm so that she grapples to Doi and punch her in the face.

    Yuyuyu meanwhile charges at Dai and attacks her with her steel umbrella to try and quickly overwhelm her kunai, using it like a club in its folded up state.

    Doi, doesn't resist the the whip- she embrace it's fully amd even let herself to be dragged.
    She pull a kunai from a pocket and tried to stab the punch of Kimiko.
    "I am tired of those petty clan politics- leave us alone, or DIE!"



    Dai doesn't bother to try to handle the superior weapon, and jumped back, throwing away the kunai to release her hands for another genjutsu- now she tried to mimic the sensation of doubt.
    "why bother some low life street kids like us? Music is our only hope, and for you, it's just another grade in your fancy studies, right?"

    Usagi jumped and spinned kicking the jaw of Dai sending her to crush against the wall.
    "Baka! Who care for studies! I am going to be the ninja who will never be helpless again!"


    But all this.. mattered a little.
    The two doors of the room closed all of the sudden, and cloud of green gas started to sip from the crack that Doi has created with her previous attack.



    "Die." wishpered a voice into the heads of all the people in the room
    "Die alongside your false hopes."

    Kimiko:
    In her momentum, she can only move fist in time for her arm to block the kunai, the blade digging into her forearm and lancing pain through it as blood starts welling from it, she grits her teeth and says
    "Yeah, coming from the dropouts with cri-"
    but she sees the gas seeping through and hears the voice. That was bad.
    "Gas! Put on Masks!"
    Kimiko knows that some gases are denser than others. Based on the color, that was probably chlorine gas. Chlorine gas is denser than air, and thus accumulates at the bottom of poorly ventilated areas. Thankfully it is actually one of the less dangerous gasses out there, because its the only kind of gas that can actually be prevented from killing or incapacitating you by putting on a gas mask in reaction to seeing it. The rest are colorless, odorless and tasteless, or kill you if you come into skin contact with them, or are highly flammable, or so reactive that they eat through anything and everything around them if not properly handled. Which means the person gassing them isn't confident enough in their abilities to handle something more dangerous. Good. There were stories about one Wind affinity Jounin during the Third War who used a combination of wind element and nerve gas to end thousands of lives by simply using strong enough winds to blow invisible poisonous gas into crowds of soldiers and kill them just it touching them and directing it wherever they pleased. Had a title, "The Nerve Gas Nightmare". Thank the Kamis they weren't facing anything like that.

    So she uses her chakra to unwrap the paper from Doi's arm then Kimiko jumps upwards to the ceiling, using tree-climbing jutsu to stick her hands and feet to the ceiling.
    "Its likely chlorine! It gathers on the floor, so if you stay upwards you'll have more time before it fills up."
    Yuyuyu blows the kunai with her umbrella and follows suit, sticking to the ceiling. Kimiko always being prepared takes out a scroll and release from storage, three gas masks, giving one to Yuyu then throwing one to Usagi.
    "You, Dai, Doi! You care about Saburo and Yukio right? Get them, then get on the ceiling! You don't have much time!"
    She puts on her gas mask along with Yuyu while muttering
    "Who is doing this?"

    Dai and Doi, stopped the battle, and grabbed their friends, and jumped up, covering their faces with mere scarves. Usagi jumped as well to the ceiling. She also put a gas mask.

    now stream of water is poured into the room. The water look bright yellow in a poisonouse way.

    "That exactly, why we left the stupid clan!" Dai yelled with frusration.


    "There is no hope. Despair is the only thing a ninja will face...' they hear again the voice inside their heads. Voice filled with hatred and frustration.

    Usagi:"Hmph. Coward."







    Odayama

    "What? What is going on!?" he gasped, when the bells ringed of danger
    DJ gotten up. "This is new..."


    Odayama's eyes have widened up. This weren't meant to be THAT dangerouse! It merely were supposed to be an inflationary test! he started to run,

    Kimiko:
    Yellow liquid? she swears under her breath, thats probably nitric acid, that can burn your flesh and whatever it burns also probably emits toxic fumes. I mean it could be a toxic poisonous liquid, she wasn't ruling that out but the more common thing she knows about was nitric acid, and that burns your flesh and skin, it was a weak acid, meaning it was 3-6 Ph, but that doesn't mean anything-alkalines are dangerous to.
    So she drawst he Origami No Tsurugi once more and cuts a person-sized hole in the ceiling, letting the piece fall into the poison/acid below and says
    "Time to leave!"
    She says running on the ceiling and up into the room above or the roof, either one was good, with Yuyu following close behind, looking around, then pull out three more masks from a second scroll and giving them to Dai and doi
    "you have SECOND scroll of gas masks? Are you prepared for everything?"
    "I'm a ninja. why wouldn't I be?" Kimiko asks back.
    "Do you think letting it disperse upwards into the atmosphere will keep people safe?"
    "Hopefully. We do not want this toxic stuff getting to the rest of people here. People outside the club are probably safe, but if someone is in the build filling rooms up with chemicals, we got a dangerous criminal on our hands, someone who knows enough to gas and pour acid. the gas is no proof of jutsu, but that amount of acid is another story. to start filling up a room like that would either need a big container with a hose, or someone with a liquid containment scroll and water release techniques to direct the flow, if only for their own safety. I doubt our ninja would miss a big container of clear liquid or nitric acid-looking stuff coming into the village especially since it reacts with iron and therefore steel, thus making the usual thing you make big containers out of not viable as a method of containment."
    And even if its some yellow toxic liquid rather than an acid, venom can be absorbed through the skin to, so generally not safe to touch with your hands.
    "So, the logical conclusion is ninja. thats the most plausible explanation I can think of, and they're trying to kill us, who is the creepy-voice kun we're hearing, so.....this seems like the work of some overly dramatic missing nin terrorist. Probably went rogue, has some psychologically damaging trauma they can't stop angsting about, they're using easily spotted and made acid and gas so I doubt they have much resources. They're attacking us so.....I say we kill him before he goes really out of control and does something like threaten civvies. This guys dangerous."
    Yuyu nods and turns to Dai and Doi, extending a hand.
    "You up for teaming up to take the guy down? If you just want to escape, we won't blame you, but we could use all the help we can get. Well, if you run away you'll also be giving up the band spot to us when this is done, and do you really want that?"
    The band thing had become secondary priority to taking down the missing-nin attacking them.

    Dai and Doi have exchanged glances. Dai hmpghed and looked away, but Doi took Yuyu's hand. "Well, I guess you aren't here to assassinate us. In this situation, it make us sisters in arms!" she giggled.
    Usagi has summoned Yojimbo- she left her crotches behind.
    "Usagi-san.. this is the second time, you have summoned me, today. What is the matter?" he has asked almost sound scolding, as he let her legs hug his neck.
    "battle." she said with a wide smile.

    the room, the group were right now, were a storage room for speakers. The yellow liquid in the room below twist into a whirlpool.


    A character sat on the biggest loudspeaker- the character wore anbu mask of heyna, with a crack between the eyes, a too long military coat, with sleeves longer then his arms. Around his neck he wore two pieces of the broken forehead protector of the sound.

    "Friendship. Putting your differences aside in front of a shared enemy. This sure does bring back memories.' the character said with what probably were supposed to be cool and mocking tone, but ended up shaken and frustrated.
    "The Generation Of Hope. Eh? Adnit that your hopes are futile, and I might let you go."

    "NEVER!" Usagi has yelled, and shoot an arrow at the character, who simply has jumped to the next giant speaker

    Kimiko:
    She stands up and look at this rogue ninja.
    "Generation of Hope huh?"
    she says
    "Seems like something adults like to say a lot these days. But I don't care for it one way or the other. I'm after a goal...far more personal. Far more ambitious. Far more intellectual. Cause see, adults have expectations of kids like us, and those expectations are not always accurate. Cause they see us from their lens. From a time that has passed. From their hopes of what the future will be like. Its flawed."
    Her mouth widens into a shark grin, her amber eyes sparking with courage underneath her gas mask.
    "So talk all you want about it, Futility-San, I don't care. Your no different than other adult forcing expectations on us. I'm not doing this to be an inspiring figure of this Hope generation or for the village, my family, or anything. I'm doing this for me. What for? Wouldn't you like to know. I don't tell my goals to terrorists."
    There were so many things he didn't know. He didn't know she already killed a man. He didn't know the tricks she had up her sleeve. He didn't know she was more than people expected of her. He clearly came in with an assumption: that all people from her generation were the same.

    Lets prove him wrong shall we?

    Usagi clearly demonstrated that just shooting at him directly will not work. So she pulls out a smoke bomb from her belt and throws it down with one hand while making a Sound Village Sign Language signal behind her back to Yuyu for "Stay Still" who in turn signs the same to others, smokescreening the entire room. so Kimiko then starts speeding around around the room trying to place as many explosive tags on giant speakers as she can before the smoke clears while using her extending paper blade to place and break pieces of it to make more, creating an environment where the more the terrorist moves, the more he risks getting near an explosive tag that she can detonate. Bad for him.

    It was a little crazy, filling a room full of big speakers with explosives over a room that has an acid whirlpool, one explosion and they could fall to their deaths but that held true for Futility-san here to, but while she controlled the detonations, Futility-San here didn't and if he was relying on mobility to evade attacks, then take away his mobility.

    "You yourself, are filled with an assumption. I actually a younger then you, by a bit.' the masked person said, with no concern of the smoke, and the tag bombs. "Beside, you are all bunch of cliches. Aren't you eager to prove your worth to mommy? Eh, princess-san?" he smirked with no happiness in his voice.

    'Ha. My help has arrived.' the masked person smirked, as Odayama slammed the door open. The masked person started to make some seals, that were undetected under his sleeves.

    Usagi pointed eight arrows, while Yojimbo has drawn his sword, and hopped from place to place.


    Doi has yelled. "No! Stop, he use one of my clan's abilities!"

    Usagi seems to lead Yojimbo right at Odayama- (she has heard Doi's yell that Odayama is the real masked person), passing by the masked person who jump and slash Yojimbo's back with hidden blade(?), he groan. Usagi turn back and shot those eight arrows- the masked person move quickly, and seems to jump right at one of the bomb tags

    About Six Years Ago:
    She is showing off the new jutsu she invented, the Ink Explosive Tag Formation Jutsu, it took her a lot of work, time and effort to make it work, but it did: she threw the paper shuriken at the target then formed the hand signs rapidly to shape the chakra she charged into it to form into an explosive seal folded within the shuriken then used the snake seal while saying
    "Release!" to make it explode as it hits the target.
    Her entire family gaped. That was a paper shuriken folded by one of her family members, and had no prior ink on it. She had just converted earth and water chakra into ink then shaped it into a complex series of finely calculated ink strokes that normally need a careful hand and patience for minutes if not hours to brush, making a paper shuriken in flight become an explosive tag in seconds then detonated it. This is insane. This is like figuring out how to just create grenades in the middle of battle out of thin air to them. The energy requirements are actually pretty low, its the fact that to be so precise in shaping and manipulating the ink like that so fast, that your memory and skill would have to be unbelievable. You'd have to be....
    "...A genius." one says breathing in awe.
    "She has to be" says another "The technique in application is simple- just making an explosive tag on the spot where there wasn't any before- but the actual work and brainpower needed to pull it off..."
    "Agreed, I don't think I could do the same, fuinjutsu isn't done fast for a reason. One minor mistake with a seal, and it doesn't work."
    "She just made a new jutsu that only someone with an incredible memory can pull off. At age six. What in kami's name will she able to do when she is an adult? There is great potential here."
    She smiles and basks in the praise, her mother even comes up to her and says
    "My daughter....I'm so proud of you. So young and your already exceeding expectations!" Yes! her mother was proud of her too! But the next words dropped a weight on her.
    "Your already proving that you'll make a great clan leader when you someday take over! Perhaps you''ll even become Otokage someday!"
    What? When did it become about that!? About those? She just wanted to improve her fighting style, to experiment, to make something enemies wouldn't expect! How did it turn into something about positions?

    In class, Four Years ago:
    Next she is in class, their academy instructor saying
    "Okay, class I'll be teaching you all how to do the first most basic technique: transformation jutsu."
    He forms the hand signs and transforms into a cute dog. Then turns back
    "Now that you saw the technique in action, as this is your first ninjutsu, I will walk you through it hand sign by hand sign-"
    "Like this?" Kimiko says flashing through the hand signs and turning into a cute dog as well, barking once or twice then turning back. The instructor is left speechless for a moment
    "Kimiko....is....is this your first time doing this technique?"
    He knew that noble ninjas had more of an education, but this?
    "Yes." she answers honestly.
    "...Incredible! Students, look a good look, for you gazing upon a shining beacon of the Generation of Hope! With genius and talent like that, who knows what great things she will do in this new era!?"
    She feels more weight press down upon her, where did that come from!?

    After School, Two Years ago:
    Her mother is having a talk with her academy instructor while she sits to the side.
    "Has she done something bad?" Mitsuko asks
    "Not all, Ishikawa-Sama, Kimiko-chan here is well-behaved in class and gets the highest grades in it. Which is what I want to talk to you about: she is so good at what she does, that I'm not sure what to teach her next. She grasps the material, the techniques, the history, more easily than anyone! I'm not sure what to do with her aside from keeping her practicing."
    "How is that something worth my time?"
    "Ishikawa-Sama, have you considered that she might needs bumping up in grades, so to speak? She is a prodigy of like that we haven't seen in years, maybe not since the Three Sound Legends. Her potential is wasted just learning at the same pace as other students. Perhaps you should talk with the Otokage about her becoming a Genin early at the very least. She has a great future ahead of her, she should be put on the fast track towards it!"
    What? Why? What does everyone see in her? All she wanted to do was learn all the jutsu she could, and study chakra.

    At home:
    Jirou returns home and Mitsuko asks him, Kimiko eating rice while she overhears.
    "Well? what did the Otokage say to my proposal?"
    "He said no, Okasan, citing that this was an age of peace, and that we no longer need to fast track geniuses like that. He said that if she has such great potential, that she should stay at her own grade to form better friendships and connections with them, as these are people her own age she will be working with her entire life. That if she is truly to be a clan leader, it would be good of her to develop her social skills so as to better lead."
    "What!? But think of what she could learn from being Genin now, getting the experience, making Chuunin or even Jounin! She could be well ahead of the curve!"
    "The Otokage won't budge on this, Okasan. And to be fair, I agree with him. she has great potential, but that won't mean anything if she can't form any connections with anyone. A village is only strong because we fight together, and great figures are great because they have made many people under them raising them upwards, supporting them until the great figure is only a face seen on top of an invisible mountain of people they stand upon. You know this."
    "Sigh, as much as pains me to say it, your right, she is lacking in her social skills. We need to start her working on that right away."
    Mitsuko turns to her as if now just noticing her presence. "Hear that? I'm sorry you couldn't get into being a Genin early, but your going to be clan leader someday! You'll have to learn more than just ninja techniques. Try making some friends at school tomorrow."
    "but...I'm bad at speaking to people....Okasan...."
    "Nonsense! Your a genius! I'm sure you'll succeed once you put your mind to it!"

    At School:
    Kimiko approaches a group of kids in her class, nervously waving and saying
    "H-Hi!"
    They turn to her and instantly frown.
    "Oh, so the high and mighty Ishikawa clan heiress finally deigns to speaks to us common kids, huh?"
    "What?" where did this come from!?
    "Don't act dumb! My dad says that noble clans only speak to use people as their puppets!"
    "Yeah, she probably just wants to rope us into doing her dirty work!"
    "Yeah go away, teachers pet!"
    "What? no! thats not it at all! I just want to be friends!"
    "Yeah, whatever we all know what noble clans do to their "friends." in the end."
    "Did you get bored of soaking up praise from adults? go back to your stupid books, nerd."
    "Why else would she ignore us for so long only to speak to us now? You never paid attention to us before, so clearly you just want something from us. Go away."
    "But...but..." when did the conversation get so out of control?
    "she can't even deny it! Look she is crying!"
    "didn't know nobles could do that!"
    "Lets beat her up for all those times she won in sparring practice! Bet she can't take us three on one while crying!"
    Her sadness turns to anger as they begin to attack. A few minutes later, the three kids are beaten up while she stands over them with only a single black eye, having won with some effort.
    "Now will you listen to me!?"
    "Huh, just like a noble to expect anyone to listen to them after beating people up."
    "Bet you think your so much better than us! screw off, we don't want to be any "friends" of you."
    "Yeah, beat it! We're telling our parents about this!"
    She breaks down crying again and runs home. Turns out beating people up is a bad way to make friends.

    At home:
    Mitsuko sees her daughters crying face and asks
    "What happened, Kimi-chan?"
    Through sobs, she told her.
    "...and....and...I failed!"
    Mitsukos face darkens and she says
    "You did not fail, those kids were clearly commoners, and they do not understand what our life is like, and thus were never going to be friends with you. The common people do not understand the sacrifices we make to protect them. They do not understand the measures we must make to ensure better future for you and everyone. We are Clan Ishikawa. We are above their petty concerns, their brutish ways and attitudes, because we are like any civilized person and they clearly weren't civilized. This is simply apart of the risks of our birth, and you must learn to take it in stride and find the ones who will appreciate your position for what it is and know their own position in turn. For you are a born winner and every winner must find their group of second placers to help them along their journey, their nakama or friends if you will. To take adversity in stride so that it never breaks you and be like iron in your convictions. I'm so proud that you were able to defeat all three of them! You did well."
    Kimiko could only think: But why, why must she be the sole winner? why can't she just be....equal?Why can't she just be who she wants to be?
    "Worry not about those children. I'll take care of them."

    A Few weeks later:
    She didn't see the three kids at school today. Curious she goes looking, and sees that their houses were empty. So she follows the trail until shes them and their civilian families leaving, fear on their faces as her mother, Mitsuko grins widely, her shark teeth showing as she waves goodbye to them.
    As they leave, Kimiko comes up to her mother, confused.
    "What....what is happening? why are they moving out?"
    "Oh! Kimi-chan. Those families just decided that they'd rather live in another city. Quite reasonable of them after that little incident no?"
    "You....you convinced them to do that? How?"
    Mitsuko ruffles her hair "Oh, Kimi-chan, your mother can be very persuasive when she needs to be! Especially when my darling daughter is hurt by their improper raising of their children. How rude of them to interrupt my daughters efforts at greatness by gathering friends to support her future by failing to raise theirs. Tsk tsk tsk."
    "They were afraid of you as if you.....did you use Killing Intent on them to get them to leave!?"
    Mitsuko chuckles "heh. Nothing slips past you eh? Already seeing underneath the underneath, you exceed expectations again and again. They were civvie families, would never have encountered that trick, its for the best that they're scared off, as if they would've ever made good shinobi. Which reminds me, we should start you on Killing Intent defense lessons next week, the more you build up a resistance to that early, the better."
    Kimiko doesn't know what to say, feeling only a weight fall upon her as she realizes that she can't let an incident like that happen ever again. She must be strong in the face of adversity.

    The Garden:
    Kimiko sits in the garden of the Ishikawa family, the pond being filled by the bamboo seesaw thing that every home has because it looks elegant or something, tired from the constant social facade she had to put up every day at school to keep her out of trouble. Jirou sits beside her.
    "Problems?"
    "No. No problems at all, I am strong, because I'm an Ishikawa, a shinobi and I do not feel. As weapons should."
    "I'm only your brother, Kimiko. You do not have to put a mask on for me."
    "...Okay. Truth is, I'm feeling....weighed down, pressured. Like everyone expects great things of me. Its...chaining, binding. Suffocating. I'm the heiress, a noble, a genius, I'm praised constantly for all that I do yet...it all feels too much, I don't feel as if it empowers me."
    Jirou considers this.
    "Well, you don't have to worry about that with me. I'm the clan disappointment! no paper release, just Water affinity. I know how bull it is. But some people like with kekkai genkai, or with money, or noble lineage or whatever, are just born with a greater advantage than others through no fault of their own. No matter how much I dislike it, I was born lesser than you, and my place is to support you on your path to greatness. But people are still people even when they have a greater "place", I think. That just because one is "greater", doesn't mean one is "better" than other people, you get what I mean? That your still like everyone else in that your a person with feelings that no amount of expectations or position will get or capture. You just....start closer to the top of the hill while everyone else is at the bottom, and you get a different view from that angle, y'know?"
    She raises an eyebrow
    "I THINK I get what you mean..."
    "Heh, you don't have to, just....be a good person okay? And just be yourself around me, let some of the pressure off. You spend all day being Heiress to so many people. Let yourself be you when you need it without expectations, or its going to destroy you."
    "....Thanks brother."
    For once, the weight lifts and she feels light as air.

    Finally she remembers yesterday. The ultimate expectation. A criminal taken. A man murdered. A paper blade bloodied by her hand. A death celebrated, a sword given. The realization of what the nature of what being a shinobi entails. It still gives her chills, and a weight greater than all the ones before it presses down upon her mind.

    Her face contorts into anger.
    "...If you think that is the only weight upon me, your a fool! Release!"
    She forms the snake hand sign to make the explosive tag detonate when the masked figure comes near it, not hesitating to try and kill him.
