Still the Same Girl (first Draft)The Abyss was tempting again tonight. Just a few steps away from Bell-mère's grave it called Nami to take a final rest, too. Let go, It whispered. You gave so much already. Nami was as weary as an old sail hanging limply in the wind. No fierce wind could fill her with joy again, it all seeped through the holes that had been torn into her.
“You're still the same girl.” Nojiko had told her. She couldn't have been more wrong. The girl that was Nami had died along with her mother as Arlong had shot her. Just when Nami had finally been ready to call Bell-mère by that name. Mother. And Nami had died again when she was forced to work for Arlong's crew. The flag that killed her mother forever stitched into her arm as an irremovable stain of sin. And then maybe a third time, as she told the other villagers and was shunned for betraying her own mother. She withheld the real reason why she did so, didn't want to share the burden. She had thought s

"Hinata... Please don't cry..." Hinata heard Kiba's words say as if he was in front of her. Hinata's eyes shot open as she saw Kiba, Akamaru and Shino standing in front of her. "Please stop crying..." Kiba said smiling.
"Kiba-kun... Shino-kun..." Hinata whispered as they started to fade. "No! Please don't go!" she yelled as she got up. "Don't leave me!"

"You have a visitor outside in the hallway." Naruto said as he toke his seat.

Three Months Later
“Hey Hinata! Come on Hinata open up!” Kiba yells, knocking on Hinata’s room door. Shino stands with his hands in his pockets as Kiba groans impatiently. “We don’t have all day Hinata! You can drool over your picture of Uzumaki later but we gotta go-“
Hianta’s door swings open, smacking Kiba in the face. “I’m sorry Kiba I was… OH I’M SO SORRY!” Kiba falls back, Akamaru licking his masters face and Shino hiding a grin behind his shirt collar.
“Ok guys. Kurenai Sensei can’t attend the mission, so its just us.” Kiba says, one hand on Akamaru as Shino and Hinata stand at attention.
“Oh joy. What’s the job today? Planting flowers for an old woman? Or maybe saving a cat from a tree, only for your dog to chase it?” Shino says dryly, making Kiba’s face red.
“Shut it wise guy! Your bugs made our last client faint cause she

She held her head as if it hurt. She turned it slowly as if doing so made her feel dizzy.The Archive - Chapter 1: Awakening2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
What had happened? This basically was the one and only thought she managed to form clearly in her mind. Everything else she tried to grasp kept vanishing behind the thick veil of fog shrouding her mind. Especially memories. Like what had happened before she lost consciousness, how she got here, and why she couldn't remember a simple darn thing. Trying to remember also made her head hurt. Nothing of her surroundings seemed even the slightest bit familiar. So why couldn't she get rid of this powerful feeling of déjà vu? She didn't tend to pass out and wake up in weird places - at least not as far as she remembered. And that was exactly the problem - because she remembered absolutely, utterly, completely and clearly NOTHING
The Archive - Chapter 12: GenjutsuIn a split second, he had pinned her wrists beside her head. Next thing she saw was red mist in a vast dark plane. “So you drew me into the same old genjutsu again. Big deal. And what now?” “Well, nothing much actually. I just let you have some time for considering what I might do with your helpless body in the meantime.” Akira considered he had been wearing nothing but a towel when he trapped her. “The hell NO! Don't you dare to!” Akira struggled with her mind.The Archive - Chapter 12: Genjutsu2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Interesting, Kakashi thought, it seemed that somehow she had learned quite some things about raising a barrier. She actually put up a rather decent fight. Her struggles would have smashed the genjutsu of a genin, and even might have given a chūnin some troubles keeping up the genjutsu. Too bad for her he was a jōnin-class ninja with a Sharingan and well honed knowledge how to use it. “I like it when you struggle.” He whispered in her ear, suddenly appea
The Archive - Chapter 11: Unfinished SentenceWhen Kakashi finally came to the archive to pick up Akira, she still was sitting on the ground, cataloguing and indexing books. “What is she doing?” Kakashi asked Izumo who just walked past him to put a book in a shelf. Kakashi was calmer now, but it wasn't a peaceful calm. More like the calm before a storm. “Oh, hey Kakashi, you are back. Akira has been quite useful to us. She helps us to sort out the archive.” Kakashi's right eyebrow shot sky high. “I hope nothing secret?” “Of course not. Why does everybody think I would show ANYTHING secret to a stranger. tz.” Izumo lamented. “Good.” With that Kakashi left Izumo standing there and walked over to Akira. Not his normal, easy stroll but more like a predator stalking his prey.The Archive - Chapter 11: Unfinished Sentence2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Akira was about half way through the book when he snatched it from her. She looked around, confused, like awakening from a dream, and it took her several seconds to realize what was going on.
The Archive - Chapter 14: Books in Her MindWhen the intervals between her sobs grew longer again, Ibiki finally said “There is one last thing I would like to know about this.” Akira raised her tear-swollen gaze at Ibiki, scared what he might ask this time. “You said you could not learn how to catalogue at first. Why?” Akira shrugged, relieved the question was relatively harmless. “I just did not know how. I never had done this before.” “So how come you were able to learn it later?” “I gave up. That's how.”The Archive - Chapter 14: Books in Her Mind2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Ibikis face wore a questioning look “explain that.” he said. “Normal brain mechanisms stop information from just flowing in unfiltered. Like a natural defence barrier saving the brain from information overload. The one genjutsu users also have to breach even if their victim is just average human. That's why I could not catalogue the book.” “But in the end, that barrier was broken?” “Not exactly. It was more like my mind lost
