夢アウェイクワイド | Dreaming Wide Awake| Prologue
Yo! So I'm going through my stories and decided to redo some of them especially this one.
Don't like tough!
One would think that peace would prosper after a great battle.
Especially after the Fourth Shinobi World War with the Akatsuki.
One would think that the people of this world would have enough fighting after this great battle.
They did not.
I was eighteen.
When the Great War began.
And it was then that I lost everything important to me.
My village, Konoha destroyed to nothing but rubble.
They fought with everything they had but….
They are all dead.
But I wouldn't give up.
They would not want me to give up.
By then I was only 26 years.
And we lost the war.
Has it truly been that long?
Since the Elemental Nations have fallen?
Since Konoha, my home, my village, has been destroyed?
Its been 14 years since i have laid my eyes on my home.
And I fear that that I am losing my memories of those who I considered precious to me,
But at the same time I remember the devastation,
The scent of burning flesh,
The taste of blood in my mouth,
The screams of innocent women and children,
The faces of my dead comrades.
The nightmares from both wars haunt me still.
Its been over 6 years since the Great War has ended.
During that time I have been wandering,
Trying to find my place in this world that I almost don't recognize.
I earn money for food, for clothes
by entertaining people with my skills, but….
I long for the scent of battle again.
Soon after traveling I enter a merchant city,
And the air changes like….
Like the time war was upon my home.
My scars ache with a dull pain as I feel this in the air but…
At the same time, fills me with excitement,
Fills with the longing that I have been waiting for after so many years.
I stumble upon a group of farmers and something about them,
Something within me changes.
Like fate wanted me to meet them.
My name is Uzumaki Namikaze Shiki, ex-shinobu of Konoha Village.
And this is my story.
