A noble heart chap 1The wind blew rather harshly as it ushered in a chill from the north. The warmth of summer was quickly fading and winter was fast approaching as small party of dwarves moved towards home after trading with nearby humans. Somehow in the drowning howling of it all he had heard the cry and it called to him and without a word he rushed to the source of the sound. A difficult task since the wind cast the sound all around but as if pulled by an invisible force he found the origin.A noble heart chap 1 by Adrainna
The cry came from a small child, curled up in a stone crack they’d managed to crawl into.

The warmth of the water was fading and the plentiful bubbles dwindled down yet he didn’t pay any mind to that as a calloused finger ran along another mark followed by a gentle kiss.Battle Scars and Bubbles by Adrainna
A caving sigh escaped from her and a hand came to ungracefully guide his to a mark on her shoulder blades. “I was a genin my team got split up due to an ambush and I ended up one on one. It was my first kill but not before he gave me a permanent reminder.” Gai coolly traced the white mark faded by time t
