I'll Be Her
Her sparkling sapphire locks of flawless hair, wide eyes and great figure were just few of the many qualities about Dawn. I've always wanted to be a girl like her. Not being afraid to stand out and being able to own bags of confidence. She's around three years younger than me, but she's a much prettier person. She had much more freedom whilst I had all these tough missions for perform. I was training to be the best ninja as I can, while she is trying to become a top Pokemon Coordinator.
I've been interested in these sort of contests for quite a while. I've watched quite a few of them, most of the ones had Dawn in the contests. She didn't always win, but she still had that confidence, and that bravery I had always wanted to contain. I really liked the beautiful clothes she wore. Especially the pink dress; it really compliments her figure. If I could wear clothes like that, I could be able to impress Naruto.
Staring into the mirror, the reflection of a perfectly imperfect girl. My timid personality had strong contrast to Dawn's bold behavior. In my eyes, she was perfect. Her looks could cause a competition with Sakura and Ino. All I wanted to do, was to do my best and be brave, just like Dawn.
Her eyes were always full of joy, whenever I saw her.
Sometimes, I needed some time to escape. I needed some free time to myself. Hiding from the other team gave me an opportunity to to experience a little bit of freedom. My family had a high expectations, some were just too hard for me to reach. I can't blame them if they're being disappointed in me. Neji or Hanabi would make a much better heir to the clan, instead of me – weak me. I can not promise them to be an all powerful assassin, but I will give my all to be a better person – That I can promise.
“Hey!” A voice behind me called over. I turned around and saw Dawn waving at me. Why was she waving at me? I don't really know her that well. I do hope she doesn't consider me as a stalker. A funky white hat, a slick black top and a short pink skirt. If I ever wore clothes like that, my father would be furious.
“Oh hello Dawn,” I waved back in my usual high pitched voice. The timidness even lurked in my voice.
“I just wanted to say hi to you,” Dawn stated sitting next to me. That was so kind of her, another thing that I admired about her, she was kind and gentle. “I've seen you in a lot of contests, but never got the chance to talk to you. So what's your name?”
“Hinata Hyuga,” I smiled at her.
“Hinata's a nice name,” Dawn stated. The smile was still fixed on her face.
“So tell me a bit more about yourself,” she requested me. She was too nice, I couldn't say no. At the same time I was far too nervous to even say anything. I didn't really know what to say. I think Dawn could see the nerves. “No need to be nervous Hinata,” Dawn assured me, “I'm not going to bite. Stuff like where are you from? Brothers and sisters. What you do and that lot? Don't be shy!”
Dawn's right: I should not be shy.
“Well, I live in the Hidden Leaf village,” I replied keeping my eye contact. “I have one younger sister and I'm training to be a strong ninja.”
“A ninja!” Dawn asked in shock. “That sounds so cool, so I assume you have some fighting type pokemon on your team?”
“I don't have any pokemon,” I replied shaking my head. “I do usually do missions with my team for our Village,” I told her. "My world is rather different."
“Sounds awesome!” she stated with enthusiasm. “What kind of thins do you do?” she asking with waves of excitement.
“Well we use our Chakra a lot,” I told her calmed. I hoped to have given her an accurate description. “We use a lot of jitsus like shadow clone,” I remember that one because it was the one Naruto used a lot, “and there was transform...”
“TRANSFORM!” Dawn shouted out loud, “WOW could you show the transform?”
“Sure,” I replied leaping to my feet as I got myself into position. I don't think Dawn even knows what I'm talking about, but I don't want to look like a fool to her. I haven't done this jitsu in a while so it might be off a bit. “Transform Jitsu!” I cried out. A puff of smoke covered me whole. As the white smoke faded, I saw I had the same clothes clothes as Dawn was wearing. Dawn stared at me in amazement. “What do you think?” I asked closing my eyes.
“That's amazing,” she replied stepping closer to me, “I mean, you look exactly like me now. I wish I could do stuff like that!”
“You do?” I asked, rather surprised of her thoughts. I felt relieved that I managed to do the jitsu well, despite not learning that one in a while.
“Yes I do,” Dawn clasped her hands together and begged, “could you show me another one please?”
“Sure,” I stuttered forgetting to transform into my real body.
The Crystal clear lake had reflected the night sky we were under. I opened my palm so it faced the lake. My eyes glared at the gentle waves. The whirlpool formed in a rapid state lifting itself up the ground in a slow manner. Dawn continued to stare in awe. “That's so pretty,” she cried out. A heart was formed from the vicious water waves I created, Dawn closer to the aqua heart still looking amazed from the site. I concentrating too hard to even speak.
The shape of the waves increased at the point where it was over the trees in height and over the lake at height. This was the point I decided to form some control of the waves, but the screaming shattered my concentration. I noticed Dawn had fallen into the whirlpool. The waves became too strong and powerful to have a sudden stop straight away. My palm rested by my side at the sound of a huge splash. The lake was huge, the splash must have woken up nearly everyone in the forest.
I didn't mean to do it, I never meant to harm Dawn. It was my fault, I should of stopped when the waves formed a heart shape. Her yellow bag had and balls had floated over to me. I didn't have any idea what to do, I panicked and grabbed the bags and the balls as quick as I could. I placed the balls in Dawn's bag.
I never actually considered being Dawn. Aspiring to be like someone and actually being someone else are two seperate things. This was all just to show her my abilities and one freak accident had ruined it. I hope Dawn isn't dead. If she died, I would feel awful. Wait, I stopped my movements, I had Byakuran, why am I not using it? When I finally used it, I saw Dawn floating on top of the lake, being confiscated by the fish. I didn't want to cause any more damage but I wanted to save her. I knew I had to jump into the water to save her, but I froze instead.
“Hey Dawn!” a voice cried from behind me. I captured the image of a young raven haired boy staring at me.
“Where have you been Dawn?” he asked me, “we've been searching all night for you.”
“Oh,” I said I assumed this was one of the boys Dawn traveled with on her journey. I forgot his name, but it's either Ash or Brock, “I was just looking at the pretty lake Ash.”
“Well it's time to go to bed now,” Ash yawned. I guessed his name completely at random and by the looks of it, I got his name right in one go.
“Yes,” I said in a gentle manner, “we should in a minute.”
I looked into the reflection of the water and did not see the face of me, but the face of Dawn. I had her sapphire locks, I had her wide eyes and when I smiled, I had her cheery smile. I thought to myself, I've always wanted to a person like Dawn. Now, one of her closest friends has mistaken me for her, perhaps this could work; I will be Dawn.
