Inahara found herself stepping into an open area covered with splotches of snow covered grass. Lanterns from nearby buildings illuminated the area but the only thing distinguishing the open field was a large boulder that sat in the middle with a decorative torch standing right next to the rock. Inahara took a quick swig of her newly obtained drink and found the effects intensifying even more. The drink was most likely not meant to be consumed so casually, but this was never something that festered Inahara. She felt like she could walk on air if she wanted to. Again, she felt that same refreshing feeling course through her veins even stronger.
“This stuff’s amazing!”
Inahara said to a complete stranger that had been walking by. She continued her stride towards the boulder, throwing herself on top of it as if she had forgotten she was a shinobi. As Inahara turned towards the sky that had slowly been transitioning into dusk, a familiar tale played through her head.
It was something along the lines of a little Senju girl who had been talented with ninjutsu and would use her techniques as if she had been turning the entire battlefield into a blank canvas waiting to be etched by her grandiose ninja arts. Instead of leaving behind grand devastation, she created new ecosystems of forestry and river systems in the wake of a fierce battle. A few of them still survived throughout the forests of Konohagakure and the Land of Fire. Inahara would have remembered more, but she wasn’t exactly an expert in Senju history. They were the longtime rivals of her clan after all. She would have to get with her old team mate if she wanted to know more of how the tale ended.
That’s when an idea struck her mind lightning. It was an idea so brilliant, so bold, so ambitious, so daring that she absolutely had to share it with the world. Or at least that’s what her drunken stupor warranted her to believe. However if she wanted people to hear her request, she would have to get their attention first.
The Uchiha would place the container of sacred liquids on the boulder and then collapse her hands into the Dog hand seal for a brief moment. She meant to keep going but the next hand seals seemingly slipped her mind. “Fuck, what am I even doing…..Oh yeah!”
Her hands would finally form into the next few seals. As she completed the technique, several yellow ovals of chakra spawned in every direction around her. Balls of fire would shoot through the ovals of chakra as if they had been transported through a portal. The multitude of fireballs would burn brightly as they suddenly each took on the forms of red ghostly apparitions.
“Alright! Let’s get this party started! “
Inahara shouted as she twirled with the gourd returning to her hands. The flaming ghouls would slowly start to ascend into the sky in a spiral fashion around the boulder. Flares danced around them elegantly in a grand display of brilliance, something Inahara would not have been able to accomplish had she not already been acquainted to practicing her techniques while intoxicated. The flames burned brightly enough for anyone remotely looking in her general direction to see. Just as the apparitions of flames reached a certain point of the sky, they would plummet towards the ground although just as they approached the surface, they would hover over snow covered grass. Just as they hovered in place, the snow melted beneath them, revealing either a moist plot of grass or the bare ground in some splotches.
The ghouls would shoot out in every direction, moving slowly yet in form as if they had been trying to haunt one another. Slowly but surely, all of the snow in the area had been completely melted, unveiling the miniature plane of grass that was hidden beneath all of the snow. With a breath of satisfaction from Inahara, the ghouls would all disperse into a small spark. Inahara had purposefully placed a smaller amount of chakra into the technique so that they wouldn’t cause any damage to the environment. She wanted to keep the list of problems she caused for Konohagakure as small as possible.
Inahara took yet another swig of the beverage known as Cactus Juice, although this time it was much smaller. This had still been enough for to feel herself further ascending into a state of tipsiness. Sheesh. I probably shouldn’t try anything flashy like that if I drink anymore. This stuff has me on my ass….
That’s when the earlier idea reentered her mind. An idea so grandiose, so exquisite, so magnificent, so striking, so monumental that she now needed to use the attention she just garnered.Luckily her next technique didn’t require much aptness at all to perform. She would poorly form the Ram hand sign, allowing her next words to suddenly project in the same fashion as in intercom in the immediate
Inahara shouted into the void of the festival using a technique that was formally meant to confuse enemies with misdirection to amplify her voice. “ If you call yourself a master of the ninja arts, step right up. I’ve got a challenge for ya’ you won’t wanna miss out on!”
Inahara’s hands fell back to her side as she held onto the gourd of Cactus Juice as if it were a baby in her lap. She was excited to see what kind of attention she may have stirred.
