Cleo of the Hidden Stars
Cleo was the first to arrive at the 3rd training area or at least she thought she was. She entered the training area about an hours before the meeting was supposed to take place. Air hated it when Cleo turns up to places late. Ari was pecking at her exposed feet when she was sleeping since the sun had risen. After about an hour of Ari’s pecking Cleo gave up and got dressed before heading out to the training area. She didn’t think of putting on a special outfit for her new teammates. who honestly cared if they disliked her. She certainly didn’t. Cleo had all the friends she wanted in Ari,Shadow,Ice,Raine and Atlas.
The training ground was unusually quite even if this was a meeting spot for the new teams today. Cleo had seem on many occasion of ANBU ninja training here before everyone woke up. There wasn’t even birds in the trees. “Ari, go scout out the place. Something seems off” Cleo said, her displeasure and worry would of been obvious to anyone around. Ari nodded her head before flying off to search the area.
Cleo kept walking forward hoping she would find what was making the area so quite. She was starting to think this was a bad idea but she was a real ninja now. “I could do this” Cleo kept telling herself over and over again. Cleo didn’t know how much time had pass when she came across a stand figure wearing a white mask with a red crescent moon painted on it sitting on a tree branch. The figure had really muscular arms. Cleo was starting to doubt her chances against this guy on her own. The figure seemed to be watching Cleo intensely as she got closer to him. Cleo was ready to take out some of her shuriken out. The figure jumped down from the branch like it was nothing. The figure came running forward towards Cleo, they were a lot after than she had expected. She threw a few shuriken at the the figure, they didn’t hit there mark. That wasn’t a surprise with how fast the figure was moving. The figure knocked Cleo over with a shoulder barg to the chest. Cleo landed hard and was struggling for breath. Cleo struggled to her feet. She got out a kunai from her weapons pouch. She was ready to us it as a small sword. The figure appeared to have the same idea. He lunged lunged forward, quickly sprinting towards Cleo and coming closer, then jabbing out their sword in attempt to stab Cleo , but this time Cleo’s reflex kicked in and she ducked forward, trying to cleave there legs. The figure noticed this at the last second and only got away with a small, bleeding slice to the ankle. They sprinted at Cleo again, but this time Cleo just raised my sword and the two blades clanged together, creating a rumbling echo through the forest section of the training area. The weight of their sword was dragging Cleo down, but Cleo soon recovered and pushed back hard thanks to a sudden burst of adrenaline . The figure was very strong, so Cleo jumped back and dashed off deeper into the woods to find better cover and maybe buy some time to come up with a better plan. Cleo hoped it was close to the meeting time for her team she could really use the helping fighting this figure.
