Ari's mind was wondering, as he was lead up onto the tiny platform. Ari had been positioned beside his father, whom apparently was a traitor, Ari couldn't believe that, surely, he was framed. Ari was frowning, but he wasn't scared, no. His mother was crying, his face was straight, just like his dad's. Ari was a warrior, he wasn't phased by the face of death. if anything, he embraced death. He knew that he could've died at any given moment. However, that it would be by execution, by his own clan.. Well, that was a little uncalled for.
His father sighed in relief, as the Clan Chief came forward, and began reading their last-rites. "Ari. Don't be afraid." The eldest said to his son. Whom nodded. " I'm not afraid to die, Dad." He responded, trying to sound as brave as he could. His father gave out a brief chuckle. " Good. Not that it will matter."
" What do you mean, father?" Ari asked when his dad looked at him. " You're not dying today." And with that, and one wasp off his left arm, the bindings that held the Scarlet Reaper in binds was opened. How? Ari could never figure out. In one rapid movement, his father had pushed away the guard next to him, as the Chief's guards was attacking, using their Great FireBall technique, he did a few handseals, and pushed his hand into the ground.
A big dome of earth came and surrounded him and his family. He began untying his wife, and then his children. " How did you do this?" their mother asked him, crying. " Don't worry, my love. Take the children, and leave. I'm the one who committed the crimes, you shouldn't have to pay for them. " Amaruko had told his wife and his children, as he pulled them in for a hug, all of them at the same time.
" Now. Go." He told them, as the wall was about the be penetrated by the armed soldiers. With one smack of his hand, a tunnel had been formed, for them to get out into the woods, away from the battlefield. Ari waited for his sister to hop in first, as he looked at his dad, one last glance that said it all, as his father activated his Sharingan. " Take care of your mother and your sister for me."
Ari nodded, as he hopped down, looking up, waiting for his mother to come after, but she wouldn't leave her husband's side. Amaruko closed the tunnel up again, as the light faded away, Ari could hear the battle-cries. How their mother screamed in pain, and their father shouted in rage in retaliation.
The Scarlet Reaper was no more.
Ari was sulking, as his sister had pulled him through the passage.
