for because you just might get it”. Those were the words that raced to my mind on a breezy winter morning as I my body had an impromptu intimate meeting with the damp asphalt, my limp body rolling across the black top like a bowling ball only never to reach the pins. Just continuing to roll and roll occasionally saying hello to the beautiful lavender sky before being reintroduced to my new lover, Mr. Asphalt.

Good ole’ reliable got traded up and gave welcome to my first real motorcycle a 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 250r, it was obsidian black and smooth as glass. The sun reflected off it like glass that had just been polished which it actually had curtesy of my dad. I had never ridden a motorcycle a day in my life, so with no real concept of riding other than some videos I had watched on the almighty YouTube I straddled my iron pony and held on for dear life.

"You will return to the day that you were assigned to Team 7. When you return back in time, your chakra and Kurama's chakra will separate to the point it was 13 years ago. If you manage to avoid imprisonment and cooperate with Kurama, the two of you will never fuse into one.

Ninja Cats Review
If there is one animal that you would guess that has the most similarity to a ninja, it would be the cat. They are incredibly nimble, have some of the best balance around, and don’t make a sound while creeping about, all of which are traits they share with the every mythical ninja. Looking to do…

Naruto threw a kunai at the sound, to his annoyance, it wasn't a big bad ninja but rather nothing at all, it must of been merely the wind.
Sakura whacked Naruto on the head. "Quit scaring everyone like that!" Sakura yelled.
"I'm sorry Sakura-chan...I just thought-"

"Ok class! Today we're having a lesson outside!" Iruka was another average chūnin ninja, although he was next to the only one nice to Naruto.
As usual, Naruto stumbled I the classroom, late as always. His hair was spiked in every direction possible, in fact he still had drool seeping out of his mouth. Naruto wasn't only the worst student but worst dressed on most occasions. Wearing bright colors just to get noticied.

"Would you be mad if I flunked on purpose?"
