The Ninja Story 10"Anything yet?"
"Not a thing, football head."
Arnold gave a sigh, placing the book aside in frustration. They had spent a good portion of the afternoon at the library, searching through the books, and finding nothing about what they were looking for. Nothing. Helga even skimmed through alphabetical volumes of an Encyclopedia, but found nothing either. It was starting to become a wild goose chase for them now.
"Face it, we won't find it!" Helga groaned, slamming another book shut. "This stupid amulet probably doesn't exist in this world! But of course that doesn't make sense since it has to somehow in order for us to be HERE! Criminy!"
"We shouldn't give up yet, Helga." Arnold reasoned. "This is a small town, after all, so I guess they just don't have a lot of things. Maybe we'll find some things in the next village we come to when we get there tomorrow."
"Always looking at the bright side, Arnoldo." Helga said, rolling her eyes. "Fine. I'll bite." She looked at a clock mounted on the w
The Ninja Story 9Night soon fell, and after a day of buying some extra clothing and under garments and trying to preserve what money they did have, as well as trying to research for a while at the library before it closed, Arnold and Helga soon grabbed an early supper and headed back to the Inn to relax and soon go to bed.
Once more, they had no success of finding any leads on how to get home, or even the amulet for that matter. Arnold was optimistic, thinking they would eventually find SOMETHING, while Helga was getting to be a bit close to giving up hope, and that worried her, and Arnold too. Optimistic and hopeful as he was, he did have a pang of thinking maybe they were right, maybe they would be stuck here forever.
So that evening, after watching some TV, which was pretty interesting in this world, they decided to turn in early and get an early start tomorrow. The next day was Sunday, so they had another full day to decide whether or not they would go for taking the train on Monday morning. Hopefu
Remember The TimeTonight was the high school reunion. All the Graduating Class way back then, were well into their early thirties by now. Familiar faces, changed faces, but all of the once students of the graduating year were there.
As Deidara's eyes wandered the crowd of his former peers, his gaze fell onto one woman in particular. Someone he had not seen since he'd gotten married years ago.
That one girl who he just couldn't imagine his life without, and yet, had lived quite a few years without it.
She stood there, some yards away, in a lovely simple green dress that went to her knees, a pink sash tied in a bow around her waist, and a silk green slip jacket to go with it. Her once long brown hair was now cut shorter, lengthened to her shoulders and was simply down. All that was absent from her head was the red headband she'd worn all the time, years and years ago. Her creamy, pale skin seemed unchanged, as did the rest of her, despite that she was now 32 years old. It was evident, and yet, her face s
HA GB Hey Alice 2"All right, Pink Boy, walk with me."
"Huh? What do you mean?"
Hugo rolled his eyes and shook his head. "I mean, Harold, that I would like you to walk with me down the hall to the cafeteria. I have a little extra lunch money today, so I'll get you a Mr. Nutty Bar."
"Oh, okay!" Harold said enthusiastically, shutting his locker door and following after the blonde.
"Good, now that I have your attention, I gotta ask you something." Hugo said, and lowered his voice. "You really want to take Rhonda to the dance this Friday, don't you?"
"W-Wait, what?!" Harold's cheeks turned a bright shade of pink. "That's not true! Who told you that?!"
"That's not important, my good man." Hugo said coolly and put his hand on his shoulder. "No need to lie to me, man. I know. I know you've got a thing for the Barbie girl."
"Barbie girl?" Harold raised one side of his brow.
"Never mind. Point is, Harold, you want to go to the dance with Rhonda, but as you can see, she most likely does not."
The larger boy gave
The Ninja Story 8"Well FINALLY! We're here!"
"I can't believe we made it. Wow."
They were at the simple, quaint village archway entrance that had a wooden carved sign that read "Welcome To Norashima-Stay for a day! It'll feel like a lifetime!" in English letters, which was odd, but it wasn't out of place.
Looking ahead down the dusty road path into the village, they could see that despite how Konoha had been both modern and Asian at the same time, this one was the complete opposite. This village resembled that of a town in the Old West, almost looking like it was out of one those Clint Eastwood western movies. The only thing missing was that no one was dressed like a cowboy or any kind of Southern style. It was all modern, and yet also, work clothes. Including overalls, and hats.
People pushed carts around, horses were being ridden or pulling carriages or wagons, people carried boxes and crates around, pushing or pulling wagons. All of the buildings were Old West style, surpri
