The day was just like any other at the cool misty village of Konohakagure. The market was open, kids played in the tall buildings and the grounds below laughing, and people socialized. Ninja went about their daily duties and fought for their right to exist. Menial and dangerous jobs alike it hardly mattered to anyone as long as you were on your path to be the fine shinobi you were destined to be. To live, experience, fight, and understand life was the greatest beauty of the world. Be it in the woods of the fire land or the sands of the wind. Be it the rocks in the Iwakagure or the Kirikagure's waves and mists. This was what it meant to live. To understand. to BECOME the best you could have possibly ever become. That was also a part of the Will of Fire. After all how many people could truly say they were happy with their lots in life. However for the Konohakagure's newest ninja class this is what their teacher would always say, "The best life is one lived with emotion, true feelings and love, for yourself and nature and man as a whole. All because life ends does not mean it won't continue. Make your mark on the world." Mina Sensei always encouraged them to do their absolute best and leave nothing back. She was a bit eccentric but she dearly loved her students and hated if they failed. She'd personally help them and now she was seeing them off into the hands of different jonin throughout the village. The children raised in the academy were truly ready for what was to come. The world was a cruel harsh place and it was not to be trifled with but hey she can't do much now could she? The pink haired teacher smiled at her class sadly as she stood before them. "So everyone it's finally the day you graduate...I'm all so proud of you..." Mina said quietly.
Mitsuhide woke up in the morning to his mother, a medical ninja of the chunin rank, calling him down to have some breakfast before going to school. Mitsuhide groaned in annoyance of course this was the big day but WHY did it have to be so freaking early!? It was such a pain in the butt to get up everyday walk up to Mina and Hiyato Sensei and practice and practice AND PRACTICE! Nothing but practice day after day of studying and when he finally got out most of the kids were too exhausted to do much, he was always ready to do whatever however which made the situation worse. Mitsuhide got up and stretched rolling his arms around in a circular motion and took off his sleeping clothes off, which were dark green and had pictures of dogs on them which made him feel like a little boy inside, and picked up his normal clothes, and went to get a bath. There was no need to show up stinky and he liked the water it made him feel clean. Like a creek washing away the grime of the previous day's mud slide that fell into the river. Maybe he was being a bit to philosophical about it but regardless he made sure to clean every part he could and he had cleaned his clothes the day before hand. After washing off Mitsuhide grinned to himself in the mirror and knew this would be one of the last times he'd seen himself as a student and not a ninja. It was...kinda of scary and weird but he'd grow into it! He knew he would! By his grand father the first he would succeed as a ninja! But as he was staring at himself smiling his mother called again. "Gesh mom stop being so impatient I'm coming!" Mitsu said quickly as he finished dressing himself and rushed downstairs to his awaiting food. It smelled great and it turned out his mom had made some fish Sandwiches just for him! His mom gave him a big grin and nodded at him, "You look great baby just make sure you don't let Mina wash you over with good for nothings ok?" she said hugging him tightly. Mitsuhide blushed and wasn't sure if he should smile or try to push his mom away. In the end he hugged her back, "Thanks mom I love you...so very much if only dad wasn't away on a mission..." his father was a jonin with a great amount of skill and was high prized by the village he hoped he would be taking him as a student this year but he said he was not selected for a squad. That REALLY sucked in Mitsu's opinion but what could you do? All well better eat before things get cold. Mitsuhide said as he sat down to eat all he could while he and his mom chatted about training him further in his skills which he promptly said he'd train with his new crew and his sensei but his mom insisted and he obeyed...and he always obeyed because she was SCARY when she got pissed. After eating he said one more goodbye and left the house chatting with various people in the village on the way to class and he had almost arrived late. When he arrived he took his usual seat next to Sora Nara and above Shina Uchiha, the alpha bitch of the class just like the rest of the Uchiha police forces...Mitsuhide sat in his usual corner and listened to Mina speak and as usual his heart flared with respect for his teacher. Mina was such a pretty and wonderful woman and he thought of her like a long lost aunt. Then there was uncle Hiyato...
