The girl made her way to Lake Biwa, a place she had happened upon when she was out on one of her night strolls one day. She instantly fell in love with the place, a secret lover of any large bodies of water. Ami enjoyed watching the sunset, with a warm cup of coffee in her hand and a cookie or two. She would literally sit there for hours until well past sun down, thinking about life. She wasn't a pessimistic person at all though. On the contrary, she was pretty happy-go-lucky, as you would call it. But there were just moments, moments like these where she wanted to be alone to ponder her life.
It was hard on her not only because she was a Hyuuga. The thoughts of the upcoming Chuunin exams also weighed on her mind, something that probably every other Genin would be worrying about too. She was not really a strong shinobi, having put more of her recent attention into meeting new people and putting her training in the back seat. She was incredibly afraid of the exams actually. She didn't know what to expect and didn't know the strength of the other shinobi in the village.
She sat by the lake, her lavender white eyes looking at the distant horizon, marveling the beauty of the glistening waters. She desperately wanted to be free, to experience what it was like to have no worries or problems. Ami closed her eyes and took a deep breath while sipping on her coffee slowly. She took in her surroundings with her senses, trying to clear her mind in the process. The Hyuuga would stay like this for a few minutes, so absorbed in her own little world that she would fail to sense that a person was approaching.
