Hiruzen had just arrived to where Hiroshi-sensei had told them to meet. Naturally, he was the first to arrive. Even if he lived with his brother Jiraiya, he was prone to waking up early. He wasn't no goodie-two shoe, but he had always woken up at the crack of dawn. He figured it was the two-tailed beast inside him. Matatabi was nice, a great warrior, and always polite. She would talk to him sometimes and had great conversations. I'm glad you think so highly of me, Hiruzen-san. You are the sweetest vessel I've had in a long time. She purred inside him. _ Hiroshi was late. He had been sidetracked along the way. Helping an old lady across the street who wouldn't accept picking her up slowed him down. I hope they don't do anything without me. Especially the twins. Always getting in trouble. When he arrived, he noticed only Hiruzen was there. "Hiruzen-san, your early. That is good. I hope you are ready for a days worth of training. But before we do that, I have a test for you three. But we have to wait for the others."
