Desert Wind

A Jounin's Life

6/14/05 08:27 pm - -Two weeks-

I've been here two weeks, and not a whiff of the hag that has my son. Twelve years, it's been and now that I know he's alive... There's this inner excitement, something that's hopeful and afraid all at once...

But... It won't work. This woman, whoever she is... she's the one he knows, cares about. He'll be a genin of the Leaf now, a strong boy capable of greatness. He'll grow to make me proud, even if I never know his name. As it is now, I'd only ruin everything. Finding him, taking him... It would hurt him... Bringing him back to the sand, seeing him, caring for him, is the way I've always wanted things to be.

But right now, I would only break his heart. This place... he probably loves this place, of peace and calm. The life he's known, shattered by a bitter, bald old man coming and taking him away... it could only hurt him.

And I'm afraid to find out he's not even alive any more. How many of those genin that I termed 'worthless' could have been my son? How many times have I spilt Konoha blood, and copme close to killing the son I've wanted for so long? I could always kill without remorse, thinking of the enemy as merely the enemy... But my son is one of these people, these allies we betrayed.

PrivateCollapse )

I'll go home within a few days. He... he'll be happier without my interference. Kankurou, will you be coming with me?

I have to speak with someone, though. I have feel no remorse for the death of someone I killed during our betrayal of the Leaf, but... there is a woman... She deserves my apologies. I can only hope she can understand I followed orders. We are shinobi - Betrayal, death, these are common occurances.

Will I be forgiven? I hope so.

6/14/05 07:22 pm - OOC: Will post soon

I apologise@! I'm sorry! It's week before exams, and we're running arounfd like chickens with our heads cut off trying to get end-of-year projects done. When I'm not working, I'm sleeping. I've not posted in two weeks, however, so I will post either tonight or tomorrow, I promise, with both Iruka and Bakio.

Is there anywhere I can read what's happened without going through 2 weeks of entries? Thankyou!

5/30/05 10:45 pm - OOC: Need Kankurou

OOC:

I know I haven't posted in a long time, and I should've done this earlier, but I need to plot with aksarah (Kankurou) before I'll know what to post, exactly...

5/9/05 08:57 pm - Leaving... again.

It seems like I just reutrned home, and I'm already leaving. I'm sad to leave again, but...I fell chill with anticipation. This past year, I've seen things I'd never seen before. I learned so much about how it was... back then...

Something happened between Yanagi, Gaara, some other person, and Kankurou. I was worried, and I asked Kankurou about it (I still haven't seen Gaara, strangely. Is he avoiding me?) but he didn't tell me much. I'm afraid, after being gone for a year, I'd rather be back on the road than now, sitting in a room staring at a wall (or training) most of my day, I have no team, and I still have to get clearance from the Kazekage to return to solo missions (which would mean abandonign my team...). And I have to sort out with the Record that I am indeed alive. I will do that before I leave.

Kankurou is injured... I['m not sure if I can wait a week for him to heal, but he needs this training...

4/29/05 08:58 pm - Kankurou, Temari, Gaara... Am I no longer needed?

I talked to Kankurou last night. He told me about Temari, Gaara and himself... they're a lot stronger than I ever would have imagined...

Was I holding them back? A year ago, I would have never doubted myself as a sensei, or as a shinobi, but... Leaving, and coming back to find them so empowered. And what happened to me... was disgracing.

I will stay in this village for one more week. Then, I will go to Konohagakure on a personal mission. Kankurou has agreed to accompany me so that I can train him. as predicted, this test is coming up, and he needs all the training he can get.

My house... Any longer, and it might have been sold. I'm glad to be home. I've begin to doubt my abilities as a ninja, and as a Jounin... I am going to ask Yanagi if I may participate in the Jounin Exam, which is coming up rapidly... So that I can verify I still have what it takes.

Some may doubt my skill could deteriorate from highest Jounin in the village to chuunin's in just over a year, but my skills have been on the decline for a while.

4/24/05 05:04 pm - Healed, for the most part...

I've been released from the hospital. Nobody visited me, which was marginally dissappointing considering I've been missing a year, presumed dead, and admitted to the hospital for serious injuries. But, apparently Temari is on a major mission, as is Gaara,a dn Kankurou...

Well, Kankurou doesn't have an excuse, but I don't evenknow itf Yanagi bothered notify him, so...

I've decided to stay in Sunagakure as long as I feel nessecary, healing, training and reacquainting myself with this village (it seems so different...), then I will make my way off to Konohagakure. Yanagi did yell at me, but I have permission to go to Konohagakure, and come back for the Jounin Exam next month (Yes, I have to re-enter the shinobi ranks. It's better than being decreed a missing-nin and tortured/killed, at least...).

I just wish I was able to see Temari and Gaara before I leave...

-Baki

4/21/05 05:09 pm - Home... How sweet the sound...

I'm home.

I'm laying in a hospital bed, with nurses and doctors rushing around me, Yanagi berating me about being away so long that I was practically a missing-nin, and telling me none of my three were home. I smiled at her reference of 'my three'.

She's apparently leaving the Kazekage position, meaning the council will be taking over. Gaara is the brightest candidate, but... Will he do the thing according to the rules and force me to re-take my rank? My disappearance of just over a year, and presumed death, seems to have unfazed the three (not that I saw any of them). I know Kankurou should be trying for the KNAICE around now, and Temari and Gaara are both probably doing missions.

I hope Yanagi tells them I'm here, because they're the closest thing I have to blood reletives. There is one prevalent thought in my mind, one discovery that I made that I cannot contain. A certain precious person I've never met waits on the horizon, and I must make my way to Konohagakure to find him. I don't know what he looks like, acts like, or even if he's still alive, but... I have to know.

Once I heal, I will take supplies and go on to Konoha. Unless I have to regain my status.. but other than that, this is my top priority.

I hope either Temari, Kankurou or Gaara come. I'm sick of staring at the ceiling.
