sakura’s heart swells with pride when her daughter shows her some techniques she learned at the academy and demonstrates an advanced level of chakra control uncommon to people her age. sakura decides to teach her some of her own tricks, but knows she should start with the basics. this is why they find themselves deep in the forest surrounded by trees about as wide as sarada is tall.
sarada is cranky because it’s early saturday morning and she has cartoons she’d rather be watching, but sakura has to go to work in a few more hours and this is the only time they have.
“what are we doing here?” she asks after a yawn.
sakura grins and throws a kunai sarada’s way. she’s pleased with sarada catches it despite her fatigue.
