IC: Ryuu, Yuudai Chuunin Exams: Konoha Gates It had been a week since their team decided to enter the Chuunin exams. Nothing much happened during that week for Yuudai, because he needed to let his hand heal. He spend his time reading scrolls about different types of jutsus and even went to Konoha's library to do some research about the Chuunin exams. However he couldn't get too much information because there were restrictions he came across, but he did find out that a long time ago when the Chuunin exams took place in Konoha there was an attack. That was all he could really get because any other info was restricted and when he asked about who it was that had attacked Konoha no one answered, some even looked terrify. This had interested Yuudai, but he couldn't find out anything else so he just put the subject at the back of his head. He would ask the Hokage about it later, he would most likely answer him since he was already teaching him the Rasengan. It sometimes still surprised him that the Hokage had sort of become his teacher, he was grateful to him for teaching him. The Jounin leader for Team three, Kuuki Zurui, had gathered Team Nine, Team One and his own team at the Gate of Konoha. He would be their guide as well as the ambassador to Sunagakure. He hadn't really heard about him until he introduced himself to them that morning, but if the Hokage appointed him leader then he must be a good ninja. He asked for everyone to introduce themselves, Team One was the first up with Tochigo Akako, Hio Onikami, and Hlaalo Eno. Then was their team with Seishou introducing himself first then Karen and finally himself. Lastly, Team Three introduced themselves, he had heard that they were the best genin team among them. Hyuuga Nikorasu, Hakkai Cho, and Inuzuka Tsume with a nin-pup by the name of Tenro, whom had surprised everyone by introducing himself. It was the first time Yuudai had heard a dog talk, it was surprising to say the least... When introductions were over, Zurui made all the Genins go in to a large formation. Team One formed a line straight in the middle while Team Nine was scattered along the right side. Tsume and Tenro had the upper left side with Cho at the bottom left, while Nikorasu had the back all to himself. Zurui took the lead as they took off. -------------- Chuunin Exams: Sand Village It had taken them Three days to arrive at the Sand Vilage, this was the first time that Yuudai had travel so far from Konoha or at least that's what he thought. For some reason traveling in the desert made him feel like he had taken this path before a long time ago, it was like he had gotten deja vu. However he ignored those memories, they would only trouble him and he needed to stay in focus. When they reached Sunagakure's gates they greeted the border patrol and entered when their registrations were filled out. Yuudai was impressed by the Sand Village's unique buildings, he had never seen such styles before. It was so different from Konoha and it was probably as big as Konoha too meaning that there was probably a lot more to see. Unfortunately he would have to do some sight-seeing later because they needed to get to the Hotel that was reserved for them. After they unpacked, Zurui gave them permission to go and explore Sunagakure so all the genins went to take a good look around. Yuudai was debating whether to go with them or not, they were a big group and he wasn't use to being around so many people. Sure he had been with a lot of kids during his time in the Ninja Academy, but he always kept to himself and people didn't really try to approach him. In the end he had to go with them because even though they could go and explore it was probably best for them to stick together. Otherwise the other participants would pluck them out one by one. "Oi watch where your going will ya" Yuudai looked up, Oni had accidentally ran into a tall brown hair teen with tattoos all over his face. He was wearing all black and had a something wrapped around in white bandages on his back, he looked intimidating.
