Re: Uzumaki Hatake Nila Saga, a Naruto Epilogue.
Lost into dream.
The clearing was bigger than it initially seemed and Nila knew she was in the right place. She could feel something pulsating from up ahead, and soon she could see it. The green fire was still burning and the light it gave of was shining in a pulsating matter. The meteor was not a big as she initially thought, or had it become smaller? She could feel energy emitting from the fires and she stopped some meters away from the stone. Looking at the meteor and the flames her head felt heavy and she noticed that even here there was no sound around. Not even the flames made any sound at all. For some reason, somehow it was very alluring, the green flames. She took a sep forward without knowing why and yawned as drowsiness filled her body. She felt as in trance as another step was made, and then another. Every step closer to the meteor and more unaware of her surroundings, the green light felt so comfortable in her mind. She drifted of into a dream.
Sasuke had been patient but something was wrong with this situation. The girl had not moved at all for some time. Just standing there and staring as if she had fallen asleep. He made a snap decision. He had to confront her. Maybe she was waiting for something but whatever it was she had clearly reached her destination.
He threw the shifting dark-blue and silver-grey cloak over his back and pulled the hood up. The cloak made him shift in and out of the environment and made it hard for people to focus on the details of his appearance. The hood concealed his face, better to be sure she couldn't describe him later.
Deeming that his concealment was suffice he jumped out from the trees and into the clearing right behind the young Kunoichi. She still didn't move. Maybe she hadn't noticed him? He took a somewhat casual stance but still keeping his defenses intact. He was not worried about this Kunoichi, but one thing he had learned about Ninjas and about Naruto in particular was that he should never underestimate surprises or opponents until he had a full understanding of them. He had learned this the hard way and was still paying for those mistakes. Anyway, he had become an expert in asserting situations and taking mesures to always have the upper hand. He approached the girl slowly.
"Oy! Konoha Shinobi!" He stopped and observed. "What are you doing out here?" She still didn't move. " Are you here for that strange meteor?" No reply. There was definitely something wrong, the girl was unresponsive. He took some steps sideways to get a better look, and activated the sharingan. The face of the girl was somewhat concealed as she seemed to be looking downwards towards the ground. He watched her chakra, it was very calm. And then he realized! She was sleeping, she was standing up and sleeping! "Naruto indeed!" he thought. Annoyed by the situation he approached her.
"Oy!!" he called a little louder. Still no response. She seemed to be heavily asleep. He scanned her appearance. She was wearing a dark cloak probably used for sneaking in the night. Over her shoulders bas a belt contraption that followed her back and chest. It was used for hanging bags, Kuenei and the sorts. By her side was the headband of Konoha. She seemed to be carrying a book or two in her light backpack and the rest of her gear was also seemingly made to be light but full of places to put small stuff. He noticed a flute sticking out from one of the pockets. He couldn't define any particular fighting style in her gear except the kuenei but she seemed to be a jack of many traits with the various objects. There was definitely something suspiciously familiar about the girl. She looked alot like Naruto, but her hair was darker with a blue nyance. But the thing that stood out the most was her eyes. Sasuke recognized the Byakugan immediately but it was still different from the one he remembered from Konoha. A mutation maybe?
"A daughter" he thought. "Maybe, she seems to be the right age for that." However it was she didn't seem to wake up. Maybe if he shook her? He stepped forward and put his hand on her shoulder.
Just like that she woke up and felt fully awake, as shaken from a weird dream. She was still standing in front of the meteor and the flames was still burning but she was alot closer now. She had no memory of how she had approached the stone. Had she fallen asleep? What was going on here!? She looked at the flames and the stone and realized something she missed before! The stone was not touching the ground! It was hovering just around half a meter above the ground. She took a step back and suddenly the stone began to move. It transcended slowly towards the ground. Nila took another step backwards. As the stone touched the ground she could feel the force surging outward from it trembling the earth and her senses. It stirred her chakra and she became dizzy. Somewhere she could feel a touch on her shoulder just as the shadow clone was released.
