“Mountains in the sky you know how I feel. Birds flying high you know how I feel. It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life, and I’m feeling goooooood!” Earbuds in her ears coco did a little jig. “Yes yes yes I’m feeling good!” Coco made her laps around the village as was her morning routine. She liked to grab some fresh air to wake herself up. Plus there was nothing better than a good sweat before she went to work. Sure the entire village was a puss filled disease pit but Coco knew her secret spot. It was secret, but it was fresh.
Coco today was dressed in a bit more risqué of attire. Only two layers of clothing. Woot woot. She was totally evolving as a person. A nice silk blouse, and a simple sweater. It was kind of big leap for Coco. Because as we all know she is a very conservatie dresser. Probably because she’s just such a closed up person. But perhaps today this was such a defining time in her life that it maked that turning point in her life. She thought that it did. The time where she moved out from her normally conservative dress and move onto looking like a normal girl… No not quite yet. She still needed to do that self proving trip to The hidden leaf village for her to feel truly confident but all the training she’d been picking up on lately was really helping her get to that position mentally. And perhaps as far as skill was involved too.
Coco had been around Kumo for a while and until recently there were a lot of people to challenge her as far as skill was concerned. Now it was just genin and people who could easily kill her. She needed a nice in between and she just wasn’t getting that around here. She was going to take her jounin exams soon and she needed to make sure that she was truly read for those before she put her squad of genin in trouble. So she’d devised a plan where she was going to challenge the Chuunin of The hidden leaf village to a battle! If she beat those guys then she was sure that she was going to be able to pass her jounin exam. If those guys were worthy of being considered for Jounin then if she defeated them all then she couldn’t have possibly be over looked. Not by anyone! But before she did that she needed a little bit more training just a nudge. She was just on ther verse of being a truly excellent ninja that she could almost taste it.
There was just one more thing that she needed to work on before she committed to her adventure that she had planned. And that was alittle technique called the shadow clone jutsu. Yes yes yes. It’s very clear what you’re thinking. ‘Hey! Isn’t coco alrady the greatest clone user on the face of the planet?’ Yes she absolutely was. However even if she was already the greatest then there was nothing in the books saying that she couldn’t get any better! She might as well create more of a gap between her skills and those of the people behind her. That was what it mean to tbe the best. You’ve always got to be on top of your game on constantly innovating. Coco didn’t aim for where the hockey puck is, she goes to where it is going to be. And that’s just the simple to truth of what it mean to be the best.
Drenched in sweat and starved for air Coco stopped her running and sat down on a rock. Not far behind her came a multitude of shadow clones who she’d brought along with her. She wanted to see what it was like running in a marathon. Pretty fun, but the sense of community was missing kind of. She looked to her clones and smiled. She was so proud of them. Not proud of them specifically but proud of what she was able to do. Which was them. They were the results of her training as a ninja.
She dispelled them and went ahead and started with her training. She closed her eyes and formed an explosive clone two of the. She gave a wiry smile to her two suicide bombers. Of all the clones She made these ones were the most noble. No doubts about that. For their purpose was for nothing else than to die and they did so with no fear in their hearts. Which made them kind of a noble bunch. In coco’s own personal opinion, but there was just one thing wrong with them. “You guys take up way too much of my chakra.” She placed her hand on one of their stomachs. “That’s kind of a bother considering that you’re just walking bombs.”
“What the heck!” One of the clones shouted. “that’s so not cool. No way to talk to us!”
Coc just went about massaging her clone’s stomach. She wouldn’t have to worry about her clones belly aching for much longer. Get it belly aching? Ha! The explosion from the clone is caused by an unstable mix of chakra on the inside of their body. Hmm. Coco held her hand to her own stomach and to that of the clone. The way that coco usually made the explosion was just by cramming all of her chakra in there and just shaking it out. But she knew there was a better way. She knew what that better way was it was just about stabilizing the mixture as she put it in there. Comfortable with her estimations Coco withdrew her chakra form the clone but managed to maintain the clone in the world. Yup just as she’d theorized. All clones were the same when it came down to it. You just needed to use a little bit more style when it came to a few of them. Nice.
Just to make sure that her plan was all the same She went over to the other clone and performed the same move. Yup that clone stayed right where she was! Puuuurfect! She did a victory lap and high fived her clones. Not bad for a little morning run!
