AT.:InuzukaTaraka:.SasuTara ~Seeking Solace~It had started as a simple mission, transporting documents to the Daiymo. Sure,they were top secret documents, but she was well suited for the mission, and so the Hokage had sent her,without a team,or a partner other than her own Ninken. The first rumble of thunder as the sky darkened was a foreboding thing, but the young ANBU captain was not to be thwarted by a little rain. However the storm intensified as she pressed on,seeming to want to make her stop.
"Tsk,we better take a break Kouiji " muttered the brunette woman as she paused on a branch, rain was falling heavily soaking her and the canine that accompanied her. The large grey and white dog wagged his tail as if in agreement, and followed as she leapt off the tree,searching for some sort of shelter. They were still in Fire Country, a few miles outside of Komohagakure, the trees of the temperate climate providing some shelter from the sudden downpour, and it wasn't long before Taraka spotted a cave, and entered,sittin
It was something she had always suppressed,but now it curled around the edges of her mind like a thick cloud,a chill of terror running from the top of her spine all the way to the end. Her eyes widened slightly,but she still found herself unable to see,to move,the scream of horror trapped in her throat.

.:GIFT:.ItaHina~Training~The sky was steadily darkening,heavy gray clouds gathering to block the sun. A rumble of thunder echoed across the forest clearing,momentarily blocking out the sounds of Kunai and Shuriken clanking against each other The two shinobi paused,the man kneeling on a branch while the woman placed her hands on her knees,panting slightly.

The man,tall and raven haired with velvet black eyes and pale skin jumped nimbly from the branch and strode calmly up to the woman.
"You are improving,Hinako-san"his voice was soft,deep,his eyes showing no expression but his lip twitching slightly. The young woman bowed,she had long navy blue hair and bright sky blue eyes.
For a moment the two stood in silence,then Itachi looked over at Hinako.
"Let's go inside....I think that's enough training for today"
"ok!" she agreed"Can we have some dango when we get back?"
