A/N: Hello, people! This is an idea I got. It will be updated sporadically!

I don't own Naruto.

I have no beta.

ENJOY!

CHECK ME OUT ON TUMBLR. THE LINK IS ON MY PROFILE. I FOLLOW BACK.

My first legitimate foray into 1st PERSON. I don't write this way, so hopefully it doesn't suck.


I don't know.

Maybe it's because of my face.

I have these odd marks on either cheek. They kind of look like whiskers, to me at least.

Maybe it's because of my hair.

I have bright, spiky, golden hair, that no one else in the village has. So maybe people are jealous of my hair.

Maybe it's because of my voice.

It's sort of scratchy and loud. I don't have to shout to get attention, it's just naturally projected at people. Sometimes it annoys even me.

Maybe it's because of my clothes.

I wear bright orange, but not by choice. Only one shop lets me buy clothes and they aren't that great. It was between the green jumpsuit and this orange, two-piece monstrosity, so I chose this. If I'm to be a ninja, I need to make a statement without looking completely helpless. Orange won out in the end. I know that my outfit offends some.

Maybe it's because of my existence.

I know people do not like me, for whatever reason. They whisper words in ways they know I will hear them. They don't like me. I don't like them.

'Monster', they hiss when I walk by.

Something about me makes them hate so much. It could be one of many reasons I have managed to list. Or it could be all of them at once. People would not hold back when they truly hated something or someone.

I don't know.

I don't really want to.

What if it's worse than what I think?

What if it's so strange and pointless?

Could I handle the revelation of why? Why they all hate me so much?

I don't know.

I'm lacking or possessing something.

Maybe if I succeed in being a ninja, I can gain or lose it.

Maybe if I actually apply my skills in becoming a ninja, I can actually do it.

Being strong would be nice.

No longer a target for their attacks. No longer a punching bag for them to relieve their stress and hatred on.

It would be nice.

I could do it if I try.

I've learned that I'm good at blending in when it really matters.

Yes.

I'll tell Jiji tomorrow.

I will be a ninja. That's something I can do.

Will I succeed?

I don't know.


A/N: First is done.

How was it? Let me know.

Check out my other fics.

Ja ne! :D
