Are you going to wake-up sometime this century kid?
"I-- I'm not a kid." I thoughtlessly groaned out, my right hand reflexively reaching and gripping my chest; it throbbed -- But so did my head; and seemingly everything else. All things considered, as shock does; it did. I didn't feel this pain until now- And by gods it was agonizing.
I started to squirm and rive on the stone in volatile movements. This passed for a solid thirty or so seconds, it wasn't until this point did I realize that my mind was ailed for some time. And a quick reaction of chakra allowed me to stifle the afflicted pains in my mind.
Then there was silence, I lay back against the ground for some moments. Eyes opened and adjusting from blurred pain to focus though dampened through exhaustion. "Where am I?" I spoke, now with clearer intentions and a lack of sarcasm in my voice.
I'm not entirely sure, we are linked. When you're completely out, I am too. I just recall us last heading into the forest for some reason.
Oh, now I recall. I was heading to the deeper delves of the Ancient Forest; isolated from the village so I could ... Tamper with newfound powers in a place that I wouldn't inherently risk my life. "Or so I thought." I muttered, examining the surroundings. Only after I found myself standing after some strained efforts; even if it was an ailment on my mind that caused the pain; the muscles still spasmed violently, that sort of pain doesn't just go away. It lingers, and slows the body to a grinding halt without proper discipline and will-power.
But perhaps, that was the least of my worries. Pain fades; being lost- Well that requires time and investment. And then there's this I mused the word in my head, while my left palm was lifted to the ceiling, and level with my torso. A small fire ignited there, and illuminated what I must admit. Did not want to see for some time.
"Great... More caves." This was going to be a long day.
