The black clad puppet user of sunagakure walked through the streets with a smile on his face, and he had been for some time, life was good. He was almost finished the development of a new puppet dubbed “the mantis”, his class in the academy was going well, there hadn’t been any intruders in the village for him to worry about, and roughly a week before he met Gabriella, a travelling performer from out of town that he’d become somewhat infatuated with. So anyone could see why he had a smile on his face, it was actually the aforementioned girl that he was on his way to see at that moment. He’d been to every one of her shows that week and never left dissapointed, it always made him happy to see the smiles on the people around and the enthusiasm of the whole thing, he knew exactly when and where to go every day and today he was excited.
