OOC Community of Sora no Hikari
Setting: A nice shinobi pub on the inner circle area of konoha
Details: Another year gone by and Kakashi is one year older. Feeling a kind of impending doom from his growing age he sits alone on a bar stool drinking a littte TOO much.
Rating: R for semi drunk pervert XD and language
The copy nin sighed a little as his thoughts had taken him full circle back to the fact he was borderlineing 30... it seemed all the younger kids had settled down and had families. Even Iruka had Shizune now.
A small groan came from him as he rubbed his head, I never thought of this stuff before. It was always missions and my duty to Konoha...they didn't teach us how to deal with this at the Shinobi Academy!!
He slid off his headband and let it lay on the counter while he rubbed his temples. Well what can you do...Happy Birthday you old man.
He lifted his glass and gave a kinda cheers motion before quickly slipping down his mask and draining the bottle.
Iruka was on his way home to change, fingering the large, bloodstained holes in his shirt sleeves and imagining what Shizune would say if she saw them. The first year students had become sufficient enough with shuriken to start working with the larger, heavier kunai today. Which meant he spent most of the day performing evasive maneuvers and pulling helpless kids out of the way of the flying blades. An amused laugh escaped as he shook his head, thinking that after everything he's survived in his life as a shinobi just how ironic it would be to one day die at the hands of a 7 year old who couldn't hit a 2 foot target on a post 5 yards in front of him.
Passing the one bar, he noticed a familiar shock of silver hair hiding behind the flaps as they blew in the wind. 'That's funny... it's barely afternoon. What is he...' but he suddenly remembered what day it was, and figured out what was going on. Grinning to himself, he slipped in and planted himself on the stool next to him.
"Celebrating already are we?"
The copy nin gave a start, his mind had been so drawn into its own thoughts and the effects of the alcohol had lessened his sences.
He glanced over at Iruka and scoffed a little, "Yeah...care to join me?"
Kakashi signaled for the bar keeper to bring him another bottle of sake.
He poured himself another drink, not waiting for his fellow sensei to reply.
"Today I am 29 years old...time to get started on ruining my internal organs. First on the list being my liver."
He chuckled a little then fell back into his melonchaly silence.
Chuckles with him "If you want to ruin your internal organs come be a moving target for my class. They're more then happy to put a few holes in their sensei." He points to a particularly good one on his sleeve to emphasize, showing how close it had come to going through his arm instead of just his sleeve.
"Besides, seems like your brain is already going. I thought you were 29 last year?"
"...oh shit...I'm 30!!??"
Kakashi gave an over exagerated look of mortification and anguish before slamming his head down flatly on the counter creating such a loud bang everyone turned to stare.
"Woe is me." he said sounding heartbroken, his voice muffled by the wooden counter and his usual mask.
"I can't believe I'm thirty already...what have I been doing all this time. Where did my twenties go?"
Nearly falls off his stool at the sound. "Hey, hey, easy there buddy! What do you mean by that? You've accomplished a lot! Hell, you're one of the most respected and recognized shinobi of the village!"
He watches his old friend, wondering just what's eating him so much. "Come on Kaka-baka, what's wrong? You should be enjoying today. Most of us that have seen as much action of you have never even get to see 29, let alone 30."
"You're gonna think I'm crazy."
Kakashi shook his head.
"It's weird...I never thought about it till now. Well...we have all these young kids settling down and making familes and lifes they can have after they are done being ninjas."
Kakashi sighed and rubbed his scared eye, "No matter who you are by the time you hit 50, excluding of course Tsunade, they start to put you out of the game...and once I retire from being a shinobi...well I am not going to have anything left."
The copy nin frowned, "All I have is my duty to konoha...if I lose it I won't have a purpose anymore...so I've been kinda jealous over the kids and how they all have special people and kids on the way."
Laughs to himself "So... is that it? God, you are baka..." Iruka shakes his head and slaps his friend playfully on the back.
"Kakashi, you have a lot of special people, at least a lot who consider you to be. Just because they're not blood, doesn't mean they're not family. And besides, if you'd take off that mask once in a while I'm sure half the village girls would be willing to bear your children"
Kakashi snorts and blushes a little at the comment on his children...or lack there of.
"Yeah...well. I wear it kinda to stop that kind of thing...so i guess it makes sence to take it off once and awhile."
Ponder for a minute. Sighs. "Might as well start now."
In his drunken state Kakashi shrugged and pulled down his mask, letting it hang around his neck before picking up the bottle of sake and drinking some more.
