"I...Hope..." Shinigai would say as he stood up from his bed and looked at the old man that had taken care of him for month. The man would look a bit sad as he looked toward the ground. The silence of the night adding to the silence of the room as shinigai would walk past the man. As he would stop at the steps of his home would let a tear fall from his right eye. His mind thinking of the times he spent with the man after the death of his family. Shinigai could not see a future in this village, a future that did not have his mother and father. He would continue out of the village compound and look around for a bit. He would be wearing his normal clothing but would also have a bit large backpack on. He was going to go on an adventure as a ninja that did not need a village to take care of him.
"If you can see me.... If you can hear me... I love you.. Mom...Dad..."
The boy would say as he continued down the silent road. Many eyes would catch his figure but would not stop to talk to him. His thumbs around his straps as he walked off near the gates. He knew there was someone guarding them but didn't want them to see him leaving. The winds of the night would blow the dust and the trash around as he would get closer to these gates. "What... Do i do.." he would say to himself as if he had been talking to someone... or something. Suddenly his head would begin to beat and his mind would flare as the voice from deep in would speak to him. "Flee... FLEE FROM THOSE THAT HATE YOU." His breathing would grow as he would grit his teeth and nod his head. Suddenly he would jump high into the sky and onto one of the gates looking down upon the village and at the pure and beautiful silence of the village.
"Ami... Karite... I'm sorry. If you ever see me again. I will not be the same person. I can not stay in this village.. I can not be a Moon ninja. Please allow me to save myself... because one day i will save you from the hatred of this village. From the hatred of the world... No... How can i save anyone if i couldn't even save my mother."
His eyes would begin to tear up as he began to cry. The thoughts of his Father would flash in his mind. The warm smile that his dad carried on his face. How much he was proud to call the young shinigai son. And the thoughts of his mother. His long black flowing hair and beautiful smile, and soft touch he would feel for years lost to his own hands. Hands that were forced to take the life of his own mother because she wasn't accepted. Because she was an outcast of the world. Tears falling from his face would make their way to the ground and be scattered by the impact. Suddenly the boy would close his eyes and his mind would become clear. He was to put this past behind him if he wanted to save himself. "Save... me..." He would whisper before turning away from the village and hoping to the nearest tree and back onto the path of the Kataki road. He was now 30 Meters from the Gates and would begin his journey of self discovery.
