The floating shrine moved passed the main street casting a shadow on the streets of Maruishi below. It was quite around here, all the time, rarely anyone managed to get within the hollow gateway as it floated by. It took some time for her to find a way to get in, but it wasn't actually that hard. It was more so hard to find out the true intentions of this floating graveyard. The place was empty, devoid of any life besides herself. The only other sound were the creaks and echos as the shrine shifted it's movement. It was truly hard to hear it do such, and it could very well have been in her head. Possibly, a trick her mind played as she could feel the shifts in it's movement. She looked down onto the cityscape, watching the people go about their lives. Their went her favorite bakery. Then the ice cream shop. A nice clothing store she had been to plenty. Her other favorite bakery. She watched as it all passed by slowly, the people unknowingly watched from above. This place as ancient as it was had lost it's true meaning. A meaning she learned in books that only collected dust in the library she found them in. A beacon of hope, perhaps as it was, no longer seeming to be anymore. Not that it couldn't be, but that it had become so regular that most payed it no head. It truly was a marvel to be had though. Slipping around the city, a monstrous building, suspended by an unknown chakra source that surrounded the cities. A building that lost it's glory long before she came to be.

Occasionally it would pass by those that prayed to it, but never getting close to stepping on. It still had followers, but only collected dust for the most part. The young girl could tell that this place was once important, if not from the views she had, but of the dust that collected. Human skin, powdered and snow flaking. It was everywhere, and in power. Her prints plainly visible without the need of any detective work. She had gone around the place a few times, but never deeply inside. Upon happening into this view, she stopped and just watched the city churn. How long had she been standing their? The dust on the ground displaced all around. She had fallen asleep at least twice. Once from watching a passing cloud go by, in the shape of a rabbit that even seemed to move. The other from a long gaze down below just seemed to overwhelm her.

She passed by a hill side just a moment ago, some people standing atop of it with an old woman seeming to pray. She had some children playing behind her, stopping for a moment to watch the monolith pass. She waved to them and they seemed amazed, running to watch as it floated away to get a better view.

She turned around, looking at her foot steps and then in the other direction. She should continue exploring this place. She knew it held clues to what happened to her master. Afterall, this was once the home to those known as Guardians.

The emptiness was disturbing. How such an amazing place went unused was beyond her insight. She watched as her favorite bakery passed by under toe and the people moving around frantically. Something big was happening soon, she had heard about it last week. All her free time was now spent in this floating castle, her thoughts every changing and uncertain. Big things were coming, all she knew was she was going to be apart of it, though purely as a healer of wounds. She was told luck being on her side she wouldn't have to do any fighting. Was that luck? She wasn't sure anymore. She felt her career as a medical shinobi was tiny, almost insignificant. She wasn't going anywhere quickly. Though, she was gaining lots of knowledge. She war learning plenty of amazing things. But it was her job to not be needed to use such if at all possible. It seemed right, just to her, she didn't want to have to use her skills afterall, that would mean something had gone awry, She didn't wish harm to anyone, did she?

No, no she....no. Though she did wish for..more. No! She didn't wish for harm to come to others! No, that couldn't be it. What did she want then? The young lass wasn't even sure of that herself now, thinking upon the idea and ramifications of what she was thinking. Of course not. But then what did she want? ANBU. She was working to become an ANBU agent, but with her master having vanished. And with her searching of this place, nothing had come of finding him. What was to come of her now then? Was she somewhere in the ether, no where yet existing somewhere? Unable to be precieved yet existing.

It was a detrimental thought. No less so then her other train of thought. She needed to make headway. How though would she do such? It would have to be grand, important. Something that would get the attention of those above her. Even those of her rank and below. Something awe inspiring. But what. What would allow for such a sight to be had. "How..." She would need an opening of some sort. Something that wouldn't be taken out of context. She wouldn't be one to break protocol. She always followed orders. But....

She breathed in deeply. The calming of looking down upon the city from above had a calming effect, especially at times like now. She didn't have large amounts of stress, but of that she created herself; upon herself. The kids playing, the ladies shopping, the men working. The world was moving along at it's pace. Everything from here looked serene. Any danger if it ever happened would be plainly seen from here, but it rarely ever went about. Especial during the day. She looked to the side, seeing her dismounting area coming up. Her finding on this rock had come to naught. She would just have to find her own path through the changes that had come to pass. And the changes that were to come.
