After receiving the summons, Masami had a week to prepare for whatever obstacle she needed to climb over to finally join the ranks of Leaf’s forces. Her preparations included general improvements of herself, as much as she could, due to the mysterious nature of the events; other than that, there were few means of preparing for the unknown. Nervousness often crept inside of her heart, but she mustered her mettle, steeled her nerves and continued to train in anticipation of the day to come. It seemed she finally gathered enough prowess, and now it would be put to the test. With the possibility of getting hurt, it was a trial by fire in Fire Country. Time whirred by faster than she imagined, and even though she wasn’t sure if she prepared enough, today was the day.
Before deciding to become a shinobi, Masami wasn’t nearly as devoted to being punctual. She shed that habit in recent years and now she made her way to Forest of Death, arriving not a minute too soon. Before she could examine the figures present at the time or usher out a greeting, a huge mass of black and ferocity slammed against the ground. The impact nearly knocked her off her feet, but she stabilized herself for the time being as she attempted to get a handle on the situation. ”What in the…” the Uchiha muttered under her breath, seemingly at a loss for words. Had Kei, Asuka-sensei, and an unfamiliar figure not been in her peripheral, she may not have even noticed their presence due to the gravity of the sight before her.
It was her first time witnessing anything like this.
Mouth dry and hairs standing on end, she swallowed her pent-up saliva. He seemed familiar with the Sennin, which assuaged some of her fears but not all of them. Not at all. Steadying her breathing, she minced together a small, “I-I’m here guys, yup…” Given the commentary, Masami had no idea what to expect from this ordeal. An endless pit of anxiety gnawed at her stomach, justifiably so in this situation, but she did her best to curb it and show resolve. She hoped some insight would be shed on the topic, for her confusion was growing by the moment.
