Author's Note

It be the Ninja Sheep! Anyway, I own just about every character in here, and I own the story, as I made it up 8p. Anyway, please R&R, and ENJOY!

"Princess Stacey!" somebody says from far away, and I wake up to look straight into dark gray. The gray then pulls back, revealing a bright blue. I sit up, and see the ninja from the castle sitting there. Looking around, I see a small jungle behind him, and ocean all around the both of us.

"Where are we?" I ask, curling up into a ball.

He shrugs. "I just woke up and saw you laying there. I thought you were dead."

I look at him. "So you really don't where we are?"

He shakes his head, and I notice that he still has his hat.

"Don't you have like some type of ninja 6th sense or something? Like, radar? Or some super sense of smell?" I ask.

He looks at me confused. "I'm a castle guard, not a dog."

"Ninja," I correct him.

He looks at me confused again. "No, ninjas are in Japan. We're definitely not in Japan."

"Ha!" I say. "So you do know where we are! What was it? Super sense? Radar in your brain? Echolocation?"

He glares at me this time. "Once again, I'm a human. Not a bat."

"Why would you be a bat?"

"Bats have echolocation. Actually the only things in the world that do."

I stare at him blankly. He stares back. I glare.

"I'm not a complete idiot. I know that." I tell him, a little irritated.

He nods his head slowly. "Okay..." He sighs.

"I'm going to have a look around." he says, standing up.

"Wait!" I tell him. "Two things."

He stands there.

"First of all," I say, standing up and pointing to his abs. "Where the hell did you shirt go?"

He looks down, surprised. He grabs for his shirt, but just passes through air. He shrugs.

"And second of all," I say, this time looking him in the eye. "You're just gonna leave me here?"

He shrugs again. "You can come if you want." With that, he turns around and starts walking up the sand.

After a moment, I follow him.

"Where are we going?" I ask him, now walking next to him. It's now close to sunset, and the sky is starting to turn a light pink. But it's getting dark fast.

"To see how big this island is." he replies, trudging on.

"This is an island?" I ask, surprised.

He nods.

"So we're stranded?" I ask loudly, causing a movement in the trees, and a flock of bats to come flying out. I shriek, and throw myself onto Akon. He holds me tight, and hunches over slightly, protecting me from the bats. When it passes, he lets me go, but I still hold on tightly to his arm the whole way after that.

After a while, we reach the other side of the island. The ground is now a bright blue from the sky, and it's starting to get cold. I hold on more tightly to Akon, shivering. Finally, he puts his arm around me, and I cuddle up to him more. As we walk to the middle of the other side, we both let out a gasp. Right smack in the middle is a hut made of what looks like bamboo and straw. I smile, and I see the faintest of smiles on his face too. But as we gaze at the hut, thunder strikes somewhere in the distance, giving us the warining that soon, it'll be pouring rain. We both glance at each other and shrug. Letting go of me, Akon and I start running towards it.

By the time we get there, it's pouring rain. We finally reach it, but we're both soaked through. Akon pulls back the straw curtain covering the door, and we enter to find two small beds on either side of the hut, and a small bedside table between them, with a lamp on it. We both forward, and I take the left bed, Akon taking the right. He sighs, and lays down on top of the covers with his hands behind his head, looking up at the ceiling. I sit on my bed, and look out the small window carved into the straw. Luckily, it's raining the opposite way, so the rain doesn't get in through the window. After about a half hour of pouring rain, it stops, and the stars come out. Looking out the window, I realize how exhausted I am. My eyes droop, and I get under the blankets. I glance over to see that Akon has already fallen asleep. I'm tempted to go over and take his hat off, but knowing what kinds of training ninjas go through, he's probably awake. I shrug it off, and fall asleep.

A growling noise comes from the doorway of the hut, and I open my eyes lightly to see red eyes looking into the hut through the curtain. It stares intently at me, and I scream as its white fang-like teeth bare. Akon pops up, daggers out. In 2 seconds flat, he's at the door, in front of the creature. He digs one of his daggers into the flesh of the beast's side, and it yelps like a dog. After that, it runs away, and Akon turns toward me. I start crying, and he looks alarmed.

"You alright?" he asks, and I run up to him and throw my arms around him, crying into his shoulder. At first, he stumbles back a little, then wraps his arms around me. I draw comfort in his hug, and cry harder. After a while, I grow tired again, and the last thing I see is the straw curtain covering the doorway of the hut.

(Akon's POV)

Stacey falls asleep, and I pick her up and put her back into bed. I put her under the covers and make sure she's comfortable. After that, I take out my daggers and go outside. I look at the trail of blood the wolf left after I stabbed it. It leads straight into the jungle. Swallowing, I decide that the exploration of the forest would be best in the daylight, where I would have the better chance of winning against the wolf if I were to come in contact with it again. Leaving the thought of exploring the forest wallowing in my mind, I go back inside the small hut. Silently getting into my bed, I think about taking off my hat, but my eyes fall closed before I get the chance to.

Sorry about the long wait! Well, I hope you enjoyed! I hope I'll put the next chapter out sooner than this one. R&R!
