Sathmos continues on, annoyed but agreeing with the Sensei's order. He gets some distance away from a dummy and proceeds to focus his chakra into the palm of his hands, firing out a wave of flames towards the dummy direction making contact with it; causing the dummy to burn to into black ashes soon. It was somewhat intense this time and had a larger radius than before which impressed him. Watari says "Now you're truly getting the hang of it. I can tell." Sathmos grinned whilst Watari said "Let me demonstrate really quick how it will look once you've mastered this fire release technique. Watari is seen walking up to a good location to do the technique and once he's there, he quickly focuses his chakra into the palms of his hands and shoots out a wave made of fire with a massive radius. It must've been roughly about five-teen meters away. Sathmos was even thinking about moving more back or a bit because of how large of an area the fire was covering.
He had known at this point there was a lot to learn about fire releases and how to control them. Seeing a visual demonstration had always helped him learn quicker so it was a good that he was doing that for Sathmos. Visual learning is considered the best type of learning there is. That's how a great number of ninjas learn from their Sensei's and in the Ninja Academy. Though Watari and Sath were too exceptional when they were younger, both at the top of their classes so maybe that's the reason why. Who really knows. Konoha is filled with ninjas who's made their mark on history but it's like that with every other village. Watari went on to brag about how he's learned all of the fire release jutsus in one single week which seems impossible. It was truly amazing to see, the work of an advanced ninja. Sathmos just stands there listening to the old and wise ninja. Soon enough, Watari says "You know what? Let me actually tell you some quick pointers on using fire releases. When using techniques like these you want to make sure you're aiming at the right thing with great control otherwise innocent people may get into the way. Fire shows no remorse, remember that. Also, I know you won't do this but don't be foolish and end up fighting fire with fire because that doesn't work at all. In fact, most elements besides water cannot beat fire releases, they can defend but they just don't over power fire so well. It's a dominant element."
Sathmos nods, saying "I understand, Sensei." Watari ends up walking closer to Sath saying "Don't end up like my brother. He was always making bad choices when battling others. Ones that could've been easily dodged in the first place and because of that, he got killed by another ninja. The other guy out-smarted him and used strong yet quick counter-attacks every time my brother tried to lay a finger on the guy using his weakness against him. So due to that, I want you to promise me that you'll study your opponents and their fighting strategies before fighting them. It's the best way to go at it." Watari ends up taking a small break for a while to tell his pupil important things to know about combat. Their conversation was soon stopped though because Sath needed to still master the technique. This was a hard-earned attack, one that will keep an opponent away for a while for sure unless that said opponent was just really overpowered. Because other than that, there's really no way to dodge it unless they teleported, went underneath the ground or dodged the attack completely.
Sathmos starts to do the technique just once more because he was hesitant to waste any more chakra for the day. He needs enough to still protect himself if someone ever tried to hurt him throughout the day. It was quite a smart thing to think about too so of course, Watari agreed to that statement. He cared about his safety and well being as he's still pretty young and has his whole life ahead of him. Watari stands back whilst looking at Sathmos do the attack successfully once more. He waits until the fire goes away and then walks up to his pupil. Watari grabs a hold of Sath's shoulder and says "You've done it. You've mastered this attack..." Sathmos grins a bit, looking back at him. He says with pride "I knew you were the perfect Sensei to have, without you I wouldn't be able to master attacks like these." Watari and the ninja stood there chuckling for a quick second whilst he took his hand off of Sath's shoulder.
Once they were finally finished with the long and rough training, a local townsperson ran up to Watari yelling some kind of gibberish it seemed. Watari told the lady to calm down and try saying that again. The lady says loudly, "THAT MAN! HE STOLE MY FOOD!" as she pointed over to the Konoha village where you can a young man running for his dear life deeper into the village. Sath looks towards Watari and the lady, saying "Don't worry, I'll get your food back." Sathmos is seen quickly taking off into the same direction as the man went. He jumps onto a tree then leaps off it, getting some major air, so much so that he landed in the village by then. The young thief has seen up ahead not too far away trying to dodge people. It was apparent that he stole a basket of apples in which he was holding with both hands, truly slowing the man down. He was slow enough that Sathmos had eventually caught up to him and tackled the young thief down to the ground. It was quite clear that Sath didn't plan to use any jutsus on him because that'd be a waste of chakra since he wasn't even a ninja. The man had no sense of combat nor possessions of chakra so why even use it against him. That seemed pointless to do and he might badly get hurt from his attacks so it was a risky idea in general.
All Sathmos did was get in front of the thief and aimed his hand at the guy, threatening the guy to give back her apples to him or else he'll get shot with a Ninjutsu blast. The man was scared, in fear for his life so of course he gave the basket of apples to Sath and took off into the other direction. He was just another crook of the village. Sathmos ends up walking back with the basket in his hands all the way to where the lady was. She ran up to him in shock and excitement because he got her apples back. Now, Sathmos never really would do hero-type stuff but this definitely improved his cloak as a good guy for now. Others who saw him give it back to her clapped for him whilst she hugged him. It was really too much of a scene for Sath. He didn't honestly enjoy it that much. Today was quite the day though, almost like too much stuff happened already. The lady ended up walking away happily with her lunch for later while everyone else just contiued what they were doing, minding their own business. It was really a sight to see Sathmos doing something good for a change, rather than just training with an old man.
After the dramatic scene, Watari glances over at Sathmos saying "Wise choice. It's the little things like that, that counts." Sathmos nods, saying "Of course. Anything for my village, you know that." Watari replies back "Yes, Yes I do." The day seemed to be about over as the training was well more then over a while ago now. Watari told him it's about time to go home so he did so. Sathmos starts to walk home in the other direction, making his way into Konoha. While Sathmos was walking through the village, he notices the same thief from earlier shaking in fear still. He ignores him because he's just trouble.The ninja enters his house, locks it and ends up eating a bowl of noodles on his couch. He was really glad to be done with training for this technique as now he can get to training another one already. Sath knew missions were needed soon because he doesn't have enough money to keep his house. Soon, he will start really soon. After swallowing and gulping the last bite of his noodles, he says "Whew, that was good." He wiped his lips off with his hand. The day seemed to be pretty much over, what was left is tons of rest and hydration. Sathmos already knows he needs to in tip top condition whenever he trains. Even though Watari never says that to him, it's basically a requirement. You wouldn't want yourself feeling dehadryated or feeling fatigued in the midst of a fight. That wouldn't end too well at all. Sath then puts his empty bowl into a sick and starts to drink some water from a cup on the his counter table. It was from earlier but some how it was still cold because of the ice in it. After drinking the water, he put that into the sick as well and went to his bed room so he can fall sleep.
The young ninja laid down in a comfortable position so that he can go to bed, starting to shut his eyelids after some minutes. He finally fell asleep soon. The day was pretty interesting; no doubt of that. It was no wonder why he was so tired, he's been up training since eight in the morning alll the way to ten in the night. It was literally pitch dark outside to the point where the village doesn't even have their lights on anymore. If you were outside right, you'd be either confused with a thief or someone whose drunk out on the streets. That's how Konoha worked. Sathmos wouldn't think of any other place as home, heck, even most of the clan's he didn't like. Not even his own. He much prefers to be in his own clan but that was up for discussion.
