Prologue — Academy Days
Several sharp scratches sounded out in one of the academy's classrooms as a dark-skinned young man in typical Konoha shinobi attire finished underlining a message he had written in big bold letters on the chalkboard. His dark hair was pushed upwards in a bristly manner due to his Konoha forehead protector, and he wore his signature rounded shades over his eyes. This particular piece of chalk was worn down to a nub after his minute or two of hard work, and once he set the spent utensil down on the tray he took a step back to admire his work. "Man my handwriting's awful." It was true. Chicken scratch was putting it lightly but it served its purpose he supposed. I mean it was legible at the very least so that was a start.
That is until it was time to file reports... he was always having to re-pen things for his superiors. Always nitpicking. Such a nuisance.
Anyway, the class would seem rather rowdy to those who had never taken part in once of his lessons but the truth is it was no more chaotic than usual. Some kids laughed in the back of the room, others threw paper balls, and only the select few studious children actually took the time to read over their class scrolls or get a jump start on their homework. It was a mild chaos sure, but somewhat contained at least for now. It would seem that they were still waiting on a few final arrivals. They weren't late yet but it was coming down to the wire of start time for today. Good news was that for once he was actually prepared. Already had his big lecture planned out and everything. 'The Ins and Outs of Chakra: A Close Study' he called it. Beautiful. Such an enthralling topic and definitely not too wordy and boring for academy students. The kids were gonna love it.
Just a brief review of the Shinobi Rules and then a lot of talking accompanied by note-taking from his audience. What wasn't there to like? The chūnin turned around to face the class and examined them all from behind his rounded sunglasses. So youthful. So full of life. Nostalgia had been rearing its problematic head a lot lately and seeing all these rambunctious academy students running around only furthered that feeling. He couldn't help but remember all the hijinks he used to have when he was their age. It also reminded him of the comrades who were no longer with him. Those he had lost along the way. He hoped this new generation wouldn't have to experience the same kind of tumultuous upbringing he had. But in this Shinobi World oftentimes death was the only certain thing. That's why as much as he hated responsibility in general, he had to make sure these fledgling ninja were ready for whatever was to come. And why he worked so tirelessly on his speech! Now he just had to wait for the rest of the class to show up.
