Dark clouds darkened the midday sky over Kaminari no Kuni, lightning flash and thunder cracked as though the clouds were begging to unleash the storm that was brewing inside of them. A lone boy stood motionlessp in the vast emptiness that was the valley outside of Kumogakure no Sato, his hair seemingly the only thing moving as the wind blew. A cloak held down by a rock fluttering in the gusts of wind, as the boy's hair does, five meters from where the boy stood. The boy was shirtless, and though his hair reaches to his lower back the wind blowing his hair reveal the large amount of tribal tattoos that cover his back. His arms and his chest also baring similar markings as his back, not nearly as numerous. His black pants strapped tight to his legs and topped with a white sash that bares the boy's Hitai-ate, also holds his small array of ninja tools.

The boy could have been a statue, at least at first, however in reality he was moving. His movements would not be noticed unless the person was staring at him for several minutes, as his movements were so minut and slow that his was moving less than an inch a minute. The boy had been out here training since dawn, or at least what he believed to be dawn considering the fact of the blanket of clouds that covered the sky. Jaes hates when his training is interrupted and that seemed to happen a lot at the training grounds inside the village gates, one of the reasons he searched for a more secluded location for himself to train. He found this valley a little over a week ago and has been coming here since, everyday the same routine, slow miniscule movements tightening his muscles and straining them as he preformed his uncommon practice.

A crack of thunder interrupted his thoughts as the sky finally opened up and unleashed the downpour of rain from the heavens, the boy watched as raindrop after raindrop hit his right forearm that was parallel to his head. The boy felt nothing from the rain nor anything else for that matter, the fact was that if he did not see the rain with his own eyes he would not even know it was raining. He sometimes wondered what the rain felt like, when he was still a young boy he would have given up anything to feel †something even going as far as to cut himself with his kunai just to see if he could find some part of him that could feel, but it always ended in ldisappointment. Presently the boy does not care that he can not feel, however he still wonders what it is like. The boy did not waver from the howling of the wind, the torrential downpour of rain or the crashing of the thunder, nor did he fear the lightning that soon began striking the ground around him, Jaes had come here for a reason and that was to train and not storm was goin to run him off before he had finished his set.

A storm started to brew. Thunder and lightning had cracked with the sky giving off an ominous, but loving harmony. Tomohiro found comfort within the the storm. The storms always brought a sense of stillness, peace even, that seemed to take command of his inner being. There was always a unique beauty that the storms in this land entailed. It was almost out of his ability to explain what he found within each passing storm. The warrior monk would find himself meditating often. Meditating within storm was a way he became attuned with his own spirit. It was a way to show the manifestation of his own control. The fight that was within him. A bloodlust that was quelled by his strengthening of his psyche. It was like a wolf lusting after a bright moon. There was a drawing in that would compelled him. Though, he would resist. Each day, each passing week, it died down. It would simmer to a stand still. He had yet to feel that draw of emotion for months now. Tomohiro knew that it would be foolish to act like it had subsided permanently.

The path he trod had been through a large valley. Kaminari no Kuni was known for its vast valleys that separated the mountain ranges. Though, seconded to the mountain themselves. He had been passing through as he traveled from a small village. There was hope that one of his clansmen had been staying in the village. It turned out to hold some truth. His clansman was stubborn, but he convinced him to return back to the village to help fight the growing threat of the cults. Taking down the cults influence was a prime priority for him. Tomohiro still had his responsibilities to the village. The mission his clan sent him on was necessary for the good of the people of Kumogakure and the good of his clan. Tomohiro was no fan of Hastur. The animosity that built up against the manís actions was strong. Though outside of the events of the Gokage Summit, the Lord of Thunder seemed to be silent. There wasnít much that affected Tomohiro directly that he knew of. He did wonder what the thunder god could have been planning.

As he walked through the valley, he noticed someone up ahead. He wasnít sure if they were friendly or not. Assam growled at the sight of the stranger as Tomohiro motioned with his hand for the tiger cub to calm himself. The young mammal ceased his growling abruptly. Assam was still naive to the world having been only a couple of years old. Though he knew more than most animals his age, the tiger was very intelligent. Tomohiro never thought that he would have his very own ninneko. He didnít even expect to have a companion at all. It was a strange course of events that fate had played on him. Tomohiro had a bad history when it came to animals, but mostly canines. The fact that he was able to bond with the animal was astonishing.

The Nakir continued to walk forward toward the young man as he rested his wrist over the top of his Kenmei. Tomohiro wasnít sure if the lad was a member of Kumo, a traveler, or a bandit. In these times, he could have been a cultist for all he knew. Though, he didnít want to leave the individual there without knowing who he was or his intentions. If it helped protect the village, he would do what he could. The rain dropped down on him as it soaked through his clothes. His black bodysuit and his poncho were soaked through. The only that had been dry was his boats and and head. Tomohiro tipped up his leather kasa slightly to get a better look at the individual as he got closer. Assam moved down into a pouncing position as he stopped within six meters of the individual. A moment pass before he spoke. He would constantly look for any signs of an alliance to Kumogakure. The individual was young and maybe younger than him from what it looked like. The young man was also shorter than he was. Tomohiro firmly stood above him.

ďIím Nakir Tomohiro of Kumogakure no Sato, chuunin. State your business,Ē he said with a monotone voice.

The boy was at complete peace as he continued his training within the storm, though his muscles were tight and straining as he moved ever so slowly his mind began to wander back to the day he had first seen rain.

"Come outside, Hideki hurry" came the call of a young girl outside the barracks. "What is it, Jade?" The young boy would ask as he made his way through the doorway, taking a step outside and his breath was taken away from the sight, water falling from the heavens and flooding the earth. The boy looked out to see his brothers and sisters playing in the down pour, it was as if they were having fun for the first time in their life. The boy took a step out into the rain to feel the water strike against himself, but no feeling ever came. The boy could not understand it, he splashed his foot in a puddle and still felt nothing as if there was nothing different from it and a sunny day. "Come play with us, Hideki" called Jade once more. "What's the point?" The boy asked as he slumped back into the barracks.

The sound of approaching footsteps filled the boy's ear over the sound of the torrential downpour that surrounded him now. Opening his eyes the young Tsuyoi was met with the approaching silhouette of another despite the distance the boy could see that whoever the silhouette was the person was at least half a foot or more taller than himself and what looked to be an animal accompanying them. The boy sighed silently to himself as his first thought was that his training was going to be interrupted yet again, however the silhouette stopped short keeping some distance between the two of them and the boy. Jaes hoped that whoever they were would just continue walking along and leave him be. Where the unknown person and their pet stood the young boy could see them a lot more clearer than before, it was a boy close to himself in age though he couldn't tell exactly how old the boy was and his pet seemed to be a tiger cub that could not be more than a few years old judging by it's size.

Jaes did not break his stance, his eyes the only thing that moved on his body save for the microscopic movements his muscles made as he continued. When the stranger finally spoke, a flash of anger ran through the young Shinobi's body. 'The nerve of this boy thinking that he can command me' Jaes thought to himself as he continued to size the boy up, not forget about the boy's pet that looked primed to strike the moment the order was given nor the other boys hand resting on his blade. 'This boy obviously has no idea who I am.' the boy surmised 'otherwise he would not be so demanding with his words'

"I must say Tomohiro Nakir, I do not find the tone you have taken with me to be very friendly. In fact I would go as far as saying that it is rather rude, between your tone and your little beast there looking as it does I am going to say this. I owe you no explanation, I am out here alone and I am causing no trouble. Now leave me in peace." Save for the last sentence the voice of the boy showed no sign of aggression nor did he make any movement towards Tomohiro as he stayed in his stance with his muscles tight and constricted as he continued his slow movements as he spoke. Once Jaes had finished speaking he turned his head to the left looking out towards his left hand which was outstretched and slowly coming back in towards his chest. A flash of lightning would illuminate the valley casting light over the boy and the metal Hitai-ate tied to his waist that bore the symbol of Kumogakure. The boy's eyes fell onto his cloak, knowing that it was better to be safe than sorry the young Shinobi began channelling a small amount of chakra should the other boy decide to attack him. If it was a fight the boy wanted it was a fight he would get, however if the boy listened to Jaes' words and left him in peace then that would be the end of it.

Tomohiro raised an eyebrow at the strangerís response. The young man didnít seem to do anything wrong, but he also trusted the instincts of his companion. Tomohiro questioned if he should engage in combat or not. Assam didnít seem to like the guy at all. Tomohiro wasnít sure if the tiger was attempting to get him drawn into a battle or was there truly something wrong. It was rather confusing. He almost thought about just leaving him be until lightning cracked through the sky. There was a glint that he noticed coming from the other manís waistline. A Kumogakure headband showed true. Tomohiro sighed as he raised his hand for the young tiger to back down. Assam agreed hesitantly as the tiger sat while waving its tail up and down.

ďOh, I see. I apologize for the intrusion. You never know. Iíve coming across many hostile targets lately. Though, if you wouldnít mind, how about a spar. Iím curious about your abilities. You look strong. Iím always obliged to assist in other Kumo shinobi in training. We need to be strong. Donít worry, Assam wonít join in.Ē

There was slight hope that the stranger would join him. Tomohiro did seem kind of edgy today, but his voice typically always sounded that way. Fighting was something that he enjoyed doing. Maybe fighting would break some of the tension between the two. It wouldnít be anything too serious or so he told himself. Tomohiro preferred action to that of words on most occasions. He was slowly breaking out of his shell from restraining his speech. Slowly he was becoming more pacifistic as time went on, but not at the neglect of training and honing his body. Tomohiro believed that doing for others was as just as important as doing for oneself. There needed to be balanced. Though, he wondered if his opponent would agree.

Tomohiro would take his hand off his sword and spread his legs apart. He lifted his fist to chest level hoping to get a response from the stranger. It wasnít often that he fought with his bare hands. Most of his training was done with weapons. He didnít want to do a lot of damage to a fellow shinobi of his village. They were quite a distance from the village and Tomohiro didnít know any medical ninjutsu. The clan mines were the closest and he wasnít sure about bringing a stranger into them. Not only that, it was forbidden to invite outsiders into clan territory. He would need to be careful. Tomohiro knew not to underestimate his opponents. Not knowing what someone was capable of was just as dangerous as running into combat aimlessly.

Excitement welled up in his chest. A brief smile showed on his face. There was no doubt that he was prepared to fight. It was almost like an explosion that had been contained for far too long. Assam could also sense the adrenaline within his partnerís blood. The tiger shook off the excess water as he began to bound off about 10m away to give the two some room. Assam would then lie down in the grass and watch from a distance. Tomohiro was stubborn. He wouldnít back down without getting what he wanted. Though, he didnít want to resort in force. Attacking another shinobi directly could be considered a crime. He wasnít into committing criminal acts. Though, they were not in Kumogakure and the rules wouldnít apply in the wilderness.

ďHow about it? A spar for a name? Just a simple equal exchange.Ē

Jaes was more than surprised at how quickly the boy changed his tone, perhaps he was not as foolish as he looked. Then the boy made a suggestion that lit a fire within the Tsuyoi, the thrill of a spar. It had been so long since the boy was able to put his training to practice and see for himself just how he was improving physically, and though the boy did not look like much to Jaes, he knew that the real metal of a person was through their fist. This would not be an all out fight, for the simple fact that there pair of them are of the same cut, however if the boy wanted to test his metal who was Jaes to deny him.

Jaes exhaled slowly as he continued his training pulling his left arm back into his chest in a slow and meticulous manner that took several seconds, leaving an air of silence between the two boys. The silence was short lived as the other boy spoke again, a spar for a name even Jaes had to admit it did sound fair. Looking to the boy who had already taken his stance Jaes would adjust his own stance, shifting his feet so that his left leg was closest to the other boy and his right leg was placed firmly behind him bracing his body and providing his root. With a slow inhale raising his arms from his stomach to his chest as he did so before exhaling and lowering his arms back down towards his stomach and lowering his head. Jaes closed his eyes mentally preparing himself before raising his head to face his would be opponent and completed his stance with his right arm closed tightly to his chest with his palm opened and his left arm outstretched in front of him towards the boy parallel with his left leg, bent with his hand coming even with his face his fingers slightly clinched ready to make a fist or even an open palm strike depending on the opening his opponent provided.

"That sounds like a fair trade to me," Jaes said aloud though he doubted that the boy would be much of a workout it was still better for him to apply his training every now and again even if it was just a spar. Jaes had taken his sweet time with readying himself for the spar and his opponent had been ready before he had even started to get ready, and so with a nod to the other boy Jaes made the first strike.

Pushing off his left leg the young Shinobi launched himself at his opponent closing in the small gap that was between them as fast as he could, once within striking distance the boy would feint to strike Tomohiro on the left side with his right arm, however at the last second he would shift his weight on his left foot and twist his body to his own left and swing his right foot around behind him coming up on Tomohiro's right midsection with the back of his right foot.

Should the strike hit it's mark Jaes would follow it up with a downward swing of his left arm as he continued the momentum of the spin coming down across Tomohiro's right shoulder. If the spin kick was to be blocked he would shift his weight on his left foot once more and spin himself back towards his own right and try to get inside Tomohiro's guard to deliver an uppercut with his right hand.

If Tomohiro was to do something that would have stopped Jaes before he was within striking distance than the boy would evade and take up his beginning stance to await whatever Tomohiro might have in store for him.

Tomohiro took notice of the strangers stance. As the young man in front of him took on a stance of his own and agreed to his offer. Tomohiro nodded in response to the manís words. Tomohiro would continue grinning as the stranger would charge toward him to close the distance between the two shinobi. Tomohiro watched as the shinobi went in for a strike. The stranger then shifted his weight the punch was only merely a distraction. Tomohiro would shift himself to block the strike to his midsection with his right forearm. As the hit collided, Tomohiro processed the strength used into the kick. It wasnít too bad. The stranger was competent in his actions, but Tomohiro was just faster based on the first couple of actions his opponent completed. His opponent had a lot of potential. Just based on the short amount of movements that he provided, Tomohiro could easily tell.

The Nakir would allow his opponentís attacks to make contact with him. It wasnít something he would normally do. Last time he did anything similar to this, he almost broke his arm. The basic strikes werenít enough to do him any damage, but watching the strikes reminded him of his younger brother. His younger brother was quite competent in using hand to hand combat. He also moved in a similar manner. This started to make Tomohiro feel nostalgic. Though, he wouldnít have time to dwell on it as the opponent maneuvered himself in away to strike him again. Tomohiro jumped backed a meter forming to avoid another connection. He went on to perform a one handed Tiger seal. Two sizable fireballs spiraled toward his opponent from his mouth aiming for the young manís torso.

Tomohiro would then take the time to counter his opponent. He closed the gap between them again, but with greater speed. The next thing he would do would be to send two hard jabs toward his opponentís gut with his right hand. If successful, he would jump back a meter.

Tomohiro found that this was well worth it. It had only been a brief moment, but he was already enjoyed. This was where he found the most entertainment. Trading blows with an opponent did something to the body that he couldnít explain. Pure adrenaline flowed through him. He felt like he could jump off a cliff. Though, that would be taking it a bit too far. Maybe it was fate that brought these two together. There seemed to be something that he felt within him as he took on the strike from his opponent. It was something there. The contact made it feel like he was drawn to him. Though, the purpose he felt that way was unknown. It wasnít often that he felt like this. Not many people he fought made him feel anything that connected them. To say the least, it was weird. The feeling would happen only when fought with his older brother Ishino. He wondered what the similarities would be between themselves that made him feel this way.

The first strike struck the other boy's arm, and the boy did not even flinch. Tomohiro surprised the young Tsuyoi, not only was he fast but he was tough too. Jaes couldn't help but feel that this might be an interesting fight after all, at the very least it would turn into a good workout for him. As Jaes spun in for his uppercut inside the boy's guard the boy jumped back, Jaes saw the boy make a hand sign forming two fireballs. Jaes only had one option at the point, he had to use his substitution technique. Activating it, instantly disappearing in a puff of smoke as the boy's cloak appeared to take Tomohiro's fireball attack. The jutsu transporting Jaes five meters away from where he stood appearing on top of the boulder that his cloak had been on. As he appeared his own thought was that the current down pour would keep the fireball's from burning up the entire cloak.

It was clear to Jaes that the boy had skill that could possibly even rival his own, a smile formed on his face as he jumped down from the boulder and assumed his original stance. He had entered the spar thinking this would be a hand to hand contest, however it seemed the challenge did not have the same inkling. That did not bother Jaes, it did however change his strategy. Channelling chakra into his hands, Jaes would release a wave of Raiton chakra aimed right for the chest of the boy. This wave was only a meter wide however considering the fact that it travelled at fifteen meters a second Jaes doubted the boy would have time to dodge it considering the fact that the boy was only a little over five meters from where he stood, adding in the fact that his target was soaking wet from the down pour Jaes knew that it would cause a bit of a shock to the boy. As soon as Jaes released the wave of Raiton chakra the boy would quickly form a string of four hand seals, Dragon -> Rat -> Horse -> Tiger, before reaching out with his chakra and grabbing ten of the small rocks that scattered this empty valley. In an instant Jaes' chakra molded and sharpened the rocks into sharp stone shurikens that then launched themselves at Tomohiro's upper body.

Jaes hoped that his wave of inspiration jutsu would cause enough of a buffer that the boy would not be able to defend against his tile shuriken, however whether or not the shuriken hit their marks or not did not matter the truth was that even they were meant as a distraction for the boy to use as a cover for him to close the distance on the boy. Once the shuriken launched Jaes took off, keeping himseld crouched low to the ground as he ran a quickly as he could in an attempt to use the shuriken to hide his approach. As he drew closer to the boy he would jump into the air flipping himself as well as spinning himself so that he would land on the back side of the boy facing him. As soon as he landed on the ground the boy would deliver two quick jabs to Tomohiro's back before quickly shifting himself backwards to put a small amount of distance between the two of them as he assumed his stance once again. Jaes already discovered that trying to stay close to the boy for too long would be a risk, thanks to his first attack, if he was going to beat this boy he would have to use his training to it's full extent. Only staying close for a few seconds to deliver the needed strikes before moving away from the opponent to provide the space and time he would need for a counter.
