Title: Never to Look Back
Season: Jungle Fury
Note: Hey all, a Jungle Fury drabble from me. I'm in the process of understanding Jarrod's past (but aren't we all?), so I wrote this one shot based on after his dismissal from the Academy. This'll be all in first person, but enjoy.
Summary: Jarrod flees the Academy not knowing what would happen next as his transformation of Dai Shi gets interesting.

They say to never look back.
This day couldn't be any worse. I was dismissed from the Academy. Why? Due to my behavior of course I was in for a big upset, but that didn't faze me.
I was infuriated, upset, more so enrage why Master Mao chose Casey over me. It just wasn't fair – wasn't fair at all. I was the best fighter out there, but they chose him? He's nothing more than a – cub.
I fled for my life after the dismissal. I never wanted to see that place again, nor did I want to see the people around me that belittled my self-esteem. I could do better, I could, but it just wasn't fair.
Leaving the Academy only meant that those three the Master chose would be doing the biddings of honor, duty, and service. However, for me, it affected me greatly. They were my family, my home, and my sense of belonging.
My parents were never around, but I had grown up with the best people, or so I thought. The Fishers raised me as their own son and their children were like my siblings, but something told me to never look back.
It was midday now. The light was quickly changing from day into night and I still would have to find a place to stay for the night. The wind rustled through the trees as I tried to seek shelter. Suddenly, a strange woman appeared. My hands shielded my eyes as I felt the dark forces encircle me.
Maybe these dark forces were what inhaled inside of me to become something. Something better, something gravely better.
"Who are you?" I asked in a frightened reply. The woman didn't say a word. She gave me a haughty smile. "What do you want from me?"
Again, no words but a slight wind gust began to pick up as she whisked me away into a cyclone, taking me into a place I would call home.
My world began to wonder into where I was or what would become of me. I only hoped something would become better.
"I brought you here Dai Shi is because you are the ruler that this world needs," the woman replied as she entrusted me with her words. I looked at her like she was a crazed woman. I raised my brow at her. "DaiShi, the world's in grave danger."
"Dai Shi, who's that? My name is Jarrod, not that Tie Dye guy." I said to myself as the woman paced herself around me.
"My name is Camille. You belong to me now and this is your home."
Home, she's got to be kidding right? This place is dark, dingy and looks creepy. There is no way this'll be my home. I tried leaving as I walked out the main doorway. As I tried to leave, the doors locked automatically.
I shook the door in frustration. There was no escape, no return of being in the real world. A sudden cloud pierced through the doorway as I coughed, fanning away the mysterious stench. As I tried to hurdle my way from it, it covered me in smoke as it engulfed me into its wrath.
A sudden urge began to strike me. I rose from the ground as my body felt indifferent. I looked at myself as I looked at the sudden attire that I was wearing. Battle armor, just what I needed.
The armor was thick like a second skin to me. It was the armor that protected everything from good, but now I was evil. Evil was only the beginning.
Everything I knew – my friends, my family, and especially myself, it was erased from my memory.
I was now a leader. The youngest leader that would destroy all that was good.
I am no longer Jarrod, but Dai Shi – warlord warrior of the mighty lion.
