Luckily I didn't have to move the fire pots this morning since they were already in place. I still had to arrive at the Junior Training area though because of the 50 push ups which I'd probably die of exhaustion from. I followed the path, once again admiring the trees and the river before arriving. No one was there, not even Master Shiron. I brought an extra set of clothes since I'd get soaked under the waterfall. I placed them near the waterfall but, not too close that they would get wet. Here goes nothing, except maybe my health. I placed my finger in the water, it was freezing cold. How does Master Shiron not expect me to get hypothermia? I slowly submerged myself in the water. My teeth started chattering, but I had to keep going or else Master Shiron's going to beat me half to death. I got into the pushup position and started. By the time I reached 30 my arms were wobbly and the waterfall on my back added extra weight.
"Struggling huh?" A voice came from the other side of the waterfall. I didn't move.
"You try doing 50 pushups under a waterfall." I said back trying to complete another one.
"Well my name's Haruki Takahashi, and it's Sunday, what are you doing here?"
"I already told you, 50 pushups under a waterfall, and I have to jog around the bridge surrounding the Spirit Tree, and to top it all off I have to move the fire pots." I said trying to fit in my 40th pushup.
"Well just so you know I'm not the only one here there's about 5 others here that are betting on if you can or can't get to 50 pushups."
"Wow, very encouraging." I said sarcastically while struggling to do another pushup.
"You know I think doing pushups while trying to have a conversation is pretty rude."
"Yeah well having a conversation during my pushups isn't exactly polite either." I was getting annoyed and tired, but I was almost at 50.
"Arrogant yet you're nice enough to take my annoyance." I finally finished my 50 pushups and walked to the other side of the waterfall. He had black hair, brown eyes and around my height which was pretty tall. "Well you're skinny. Nice to meet you."
"I would say likewise, but I'd be lying." I took my dry clothes and headed towards my room to change. He ran up behind me.
"Hey, you know I was trying to be annoying, I had to see if you were the real deal you know?"
"Yeah, by the way where did those imaginary people go?" We both chuckled.
"I'll see ya around sometime, I might even come to do pushups with you."
"Sure I look forward to it." I opened the door to my room and started changing into dry clothes. I spotted the mp3 player Sakura gave me. I wonder what songs she put on there. I stuffed the mp3 player in my pocket and put my earbuds to my ears. I walked outside and immediately started jogging to the bridge. I started jogging to the rhythm of the song. Not a lot of people were on the bridge which was great since I had more room on the bridge. Someone tapped me on the shoulder behind me. It was Haruki. "We meet again." He said jogging alongside me.
"Was it really that easy to catch up to me?" I asked.
"Yeah pretty easy you're as slow as a snail."
"Oh yeah? Well try to catch up to me now." I ran faster.
"What a joke." He caught up to me.
"Well I'm just getting started." I once again ran faster and faster until we were both going as fast as we could go. We both looked like maniacs running over anything in our path. We ran 4 laps before Haruki stopped. "You're giving up?" I said arrogantly until I tripped over a brick and slammed into cold metal. "Ow!" I shouted before looking up and realizing I slammed into what seemed to be a giant metal vehicle designed to wedge into the bridge.
"Alright men bring him back alive." A voice came from on top of the vehicle. Several men wearing all black clothing with gray hair and black eyes jumped down and turned towards me.
"Well this was easy." One of them said. I don't know about you, but I think I'm in big trouble.
