The Longest Road
~Chapter 2. The message~
Temari ran. She could run fast, and the distance she had to cross would have been easy for her, if not for the message she was carrying, the message that made her stomach tight into a knot, and her heart beat unsteadily.
She reached the village's gates, and once she entered the shadow between cliffs, she took a canteen from her pouch, and sipped the water, still running. The guards watched her with confused frowns creasing their foreheads but none of them stopped her. She didn't even notice that; her legs wanted to slow down but she forced them to go until she arrived at the entrance of the Kazekage Tower. Only then she came to a halt, and told a guard she had to see the Kazekage immediately.
She didn't wait too long for the permission to enter, and she followed the guard to the office. The Godaime Kazekage was waiting for her, settled behind the desk, which was not so long ago occupied by her father. Temari's breath was still un

The Longest Road
~Chapter 1. Godaime Kazekage~
The air, still holding a bit of a night chill, started warming up quickly when the sun rose, even if the shadows were still long at this early hour. Not that Godaime Kazekage would notice the rapidly increasing heat even if he would be knocked out of his reverie. After living in a desert for 35 years he simply didn't give care to it, especially on a day like that.
Over two weeks had passed since Suna broke the peace treaty and invaded Konoha, or rather attempted to invade, only to lose completely. The Yondaime Kazekage had gone missing since then, and only a few still hoped he would return.

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim - The Prince of DragonsThe Elder Scrolls: Skyrim - The Prince of Dragons by XxGaaraloverxX
The large and foreboding castle stood atop the tallest mountain in a land called Skyrim, within the world of Tamriel.
High above the farms and towns; taller than the castled cities, a young prince sat upon his throne at the throat of the world.
This mountaintop was so vast and steep; no human could ever climb to the top, to see this castle for themselves. Most believe that it was the gods themselves that created such a mystic and beautiful castle. For no man could have built such a masterpiece.
Although the world had its share of humans and other creatures, none had the power, and the prowess of the dragons. These glorious beasts roamed the skies, their roars of ancient language filling the air, and the people’s hearts with fear and anguish.
The Throat of the World was to be called their home, for they were the only creatures with the ability to reach the mysterious castle. Their scaly skin was tough against the freezing temperatures, and their lungs were suited for the high alti

"The longest road you're going to have to walk
is from here to here. From your head to your heart.
And you can't speak to the people as a leader
unless you've made the return journey.
From the heart back to the head." Dakota proverb
The Longest Road
There were many things Rock Lee hadn't expected to see during the chuunin exam, and the boy from Sunagakure definitely was one of those things.
