Chishiki stood upon the training grounds, he was still only an Academy Student, but he was going for the Genin status when the Exam began, but today, he would train his chakra, he would need it in battles and the usage of chakra at the Exam. Chishiki would stand on the Training grounds in a horse stance. He would stand there and focus power inside his inner core, unleashing it as blue waves in the air. The blue chakra waves in the air would fly around Chishiki, he was trying to focus a lot onto his chakra, trying to distributed it into fire. As said by his parents ''You'll know when you have matured for your sharingan, you'll know when you can perform your fire technique'' Evens still thought of his Mom's quote and began to force chakra to his hand and mouth, slowly moving his right hand in front of his mouth and began to blow aggressively and try to flow fire into the chakra, he was still thinking if he could succeed that technique, he was trying all that he could, but is was just not enough. He would react as his chakra began to feel hot and violent, it began to heat up, a flame would appear, but then it snapped, it was just his imagination ...
Nothing appeared and nothing would appear. His chakra would enhance by his willpower, but still no flames would appear. His strong willpower would then burst into a flame, but that flame was not the technique he was hoping, it was just chakra. His view of the chakra distribution was going to be easy, but when trying it in real life training, that was hard and difficult. His father had not learned him the technique of the Great Fireball technique yet, and Chishiki didn't think his father would teach him ever. Maybe Chishiki just needed to learn it by himself and 'mature' for his sharingan, it was good for him to train and experienced how th life of an Uchiha was. His chakra was growing and it exploded into a fire wave breath. And then ... it was his imagination, he didn't know any techniques, but he knew his chakra nature was fire, he had made fire before, but it was in an intense training session. Now was not intense enough for him to activate his fire abilities, and his Sharingan was not maturing yet. He just needed to succeed the Genin Exam to try to find a way to gain his Sharingan easier than train for years. Finally his chakra began to burst, and this time in real life, but then a hand was felt on the shoulder of Chishiki. It was his father, an Uchiha of the Hidden cloud.
He mentioned Chishiki to get home now, it was getting dark, and Chishiki haven't even noticed anything yet.
He then followed his father home. He looked over his shoulder, and saw a shadow like shape of a person, who could it be? As he saw the shadow getting near it was a shinobi, a girl.
The young Chishiki noticed the young Genin and another being in the shadows, but that being was not able to be sensed correctly nor identified. Though, Chishiki noticed the young Genin trying to get attention with him. Chishiki would look at his dad with his blurry brown eyes, his father would now and let him go, letting go his hand to let him walk back to train. Chishiki would then walk towards the Genin and say out loud
''Hello. My name is Chishiki Tojidofukoto Uchiha, but friends just call me Chishiki'' and he would walk towards the girl.
Stalking ... he thought while walking towards the Genin.
''I could need some help with my chakra manipulation, i'm trying to mature for my Sharingans'' he would say while smiling at the Genin, she was higher rank than him sp he would have respect for her.
Soon the Genin would notice something weird in his left hand, a skateboard, he was the only, yet, person in the village to own a skateboard, he was beginning to be good at skating with it, but he couldn't use it for attacks yet ...
The tiny girl's smile widened at his explanation before she said warmly, "Well, it's very nice to meet you, Chishiki! And lucky for you, I just so happen to know about chakra manipulation and have the fire elemental affinity. ... You do have one, right? Uchihas' usually have the fire ones, don't they?"
After offering her services to the boy, the girl's sky blue eyes drifted slightly to the strange machine in Chishiki's hand, her eyes beginning to sparkle. "That's so cool! I have never seen anything like that before! What is it?" the girl asked excitedly, bouncing up and down.
Chishiki would take the board forth and show on the underneath of the deck (the board itself) picture of a bunny (Similar to Honey Senpai's) and he would then begin to talk about the board, ignoring about the Fire Affinity.
He would show the top of the board ''That's called the nose, and that's called the tail'' he would say while pointing on the top and the bottom of the board. He would the point upon where the wheels metal was hanging, the place where the wheel bearings was attached to the deck.
''That is called the 'trucks', they make the board able to turn while riding it'' he would say and then move to the wheels and laugh.
''That is called, of course, the wheels'' he laughed again after that and than looked happily at Sachiko. His chakra Affinity was of course fire as known, and he was an Uchiha after all.
''Yeah, my chakra affinity is Fire and yeah, I AM an Uchiha afterall'' he would smile and glancing over the girl's body and gear, not noticing anything weird for any shinobi. His brown eyes flew around and tried to remember any curve and place the gear was placed, to prepare remembering people, he was training the Sharingan ability, but it was no success, he only still had his normal eyes.
"Amazing," the girl breathed exictedly, staring at the board in admiration for a few seconds before shaking her head. She was here to help train her new friend about elemental manipulatin for his sharigan, not stand around and stare! So, the small child's face contorted into a serious expression.
"Chishiki, thank you for showing me this board, it's really really cool. Would you like me to help you with elemental manipulation? Since our affinity's are the same, it'll be pretty easy to do. You in?" the girl released a kind grin, her sky blue eyes bright as she looked at her new Uchiha friend for an answer, noticing him staring at her, as if he was attempting to remember her appearance.
Ah, I see, the intelligent girl thought to herself, inwardly feeling a rush of pride for her friend before contemplating whether or not she should tease him for staring at her like that. The tiny girl decidedly decided to tease him, a mischievous glint in her blue eyes.
"I DO look pretty good, don't I?" Sachiko said teasingly, grinning as she suddenly positioned herself in a silly pose toward her new friend.
Sachiko watched her friend silently, inwardly cheering him on. Go, Chishiki! You can do it! Inner Sachiko cheered, causing the tiny girl to quirk a smile. I see what he's trying to do, the young girl thought to herself.
The young girl then decided to help her friend out by giving him more advice. "Chishiki," she started kindly, in a soft voice as not to break her friend's concentration,"You're doing really great! Now, if it helps, just imagine your inner fire as an urn that's tipped over and spilling out small drops of its contents until it trickles into your hand."
Afterwads training in a whole period of time, Chishiki then later got the idea from Sachiko that he could imagine an Urn with chakra in, and just tilt it to the side, dropping some chakra just some at a time, like channeling chakra forth to the arm. But as he was training he was that near of the success rate ...
He was mentally getting stronger and stronger, but when he tried to feel the fire inside the urn, but when getting a clap on his shoulder, his concentration was bursting. The urn was breaking and the chakra burst was emerged and blew up his concentration. He then felt pain in his chest, bursting the concentration and felt the pain of no concentration and looked up in the sky, noticing his dad standing there, he then noticed the weather, it was dark and stars was beginning to show up.
''Chishiki, i'm sorry if I destroyed your concentration, but we have to go home now, say good bye to your friend there'' His father would say and begin to drag him away.
Chishiki felt a tear on his cheek and felt the pain, he was so close to do it, and then it all disappeared in a second, he pulled his hand out of his fathers and looked angry at him. Sorrow was in his head now, feeling sadness of his father killing his so close goal, he now had to start from scratch again.
''I WAS SO CLOSE! WHY WOULD YOU DO SUCH A THING!?'' he would yell and begin to cry, he would run and grab his skateboard, he would then run behind Sachiko. He would stand there behind her and wait for his father to see what was wrong and calm down, Chishiki's father was a good man and loved Chishiki a lot.
''Say goodbye to your friend Chishiki, we'll get back tomorrow, i'm sorry, Chishiki'' he would say calm to Chishiki and see Chishiki dry of his tears and hug Sachiko ''See you tomorrow'' he would say and go to his father, but he still felt the pain in his chest, a feeling in his eyes was tingling. He would stare at Sachiko and smile but his eyes was changed, the first tomoe awakened ... Knowing that sorrow was still in his heart, he would still smile and hide the sorrow.
Sachiko's smile was full of pure joy as she saw her friend close to opening his chakra element, until suddenly a voice rang through the air, breaking the boy's concentration. It was his father.
The young girl was filled with rage. How dare he? Chishiki was so close! Angrily, the girl narrowed her eyes and was about to tell the guy off when suddenly her friend burst out yelling.
"I WAS SO CLOSE! WHY WOULD YOU DO SUCH A THING!?'' He then ran behind Sachiko, hiding from his father until the man came over, crying.
The young girl's sky blue eyes softened before she was hugged. Smiling gently, the young girl returned the hug tightly and said warmly, "See you tomorrow, Chishiki. Please have a good night, 'k? Also, don't worry, I KNOW you'll open your elemental affinity soon."
Now he felt pain, his father, bursting his concentration. Chishiki was still crying when leaving the training ground, sorrow was felt and pain was dealt. Chishiki would always remember when a friend cheered him up ... and then his father destroying all the joy, something made on hours, in seconds ... The pain that was dealt to Chishiki was pain that hurt his body, his heart and his inner soul. He wasn't able to think about it again without feeling pain about it ... How was he able to forget that pain his father gave him?
Afterwards the next day, his father denied him being with one of his best friends and he was hurt again, Chishiki couldn't understand why his father was suddenly getting mad. He was used to his father to be a good and friendly dad, but just out of a sudden when Sachiko appeared, he was getting all annoying and irritating, he was not the same person at that time. Chishiki's pain was growing through his body, his eyes ... turning red ... His first Tomoe on his sharingan was awakened.
