A wind flies up from the east, swirling and dancing with smoke as it

Smoking husks that were once great trees cover the scene, and
shelter a shadow as black as they from view.

Useless. They're all useless.

One would think that out of an entire village of shinobi, at least one
would be able to break the hypnosis. All it requires is strength of will.

below me have merely fulfilled their life's quest a little earlier than

Why does a child's corpse stink worse than a man's?

Most of the young population of Konoha is down there, burned black
bodies piled in heaps. The children were the ones who believed the

is terrible.

I wonder if it pierces the other's dreams.


Awyr here. It's been a while, hasn't it? I've been really sick with
something that had me sleeping 20 hours per day (and no, it's not mono).
But I'm better now, and hopefully will be writing more chapters soon!
