Keiko was standing just inside the village gates that led to the vast desert outside. The river was a few hundred feet away from her location at the entrance and cut through Akarigakure's interior slightly. The winds blowing in from the ocean brought in scents filled with the sea as well as dust that was kicked up from the breeze. Sandstorms are a common place here in Akarigakure, but that wasn't the worst of it. The Akuma, or so we call them, are demons from another world that are hellbent on destroying humanity. They popped up a few hundred years past and are still a major threat today.

Seeing as the coast was clear, the young Kaguya teenager ventured outwards towards the river to do a little bit of jutsu practice. The particular jutsu in question was one she was highly interested in, as it would give her a great advantage in battle should she use it correctly. She talked to one of the teachers present at the Ninja Academy about the Shunshin no Jutsu and they explained how its uses and applications were. After thanking the man, she headed back home to pack her belongings which included a backpack filled with food, notes, and emergency supplies should she get stuck out here in the desert for an extended amount of time.

The silver-haired girl had a small hideout located near the river a few kilometers west of the main village that was underneath a pile of ruins. She had renovated and remodeled the interior of the cellar/basement to fit her liking. It was her safe space inside this vast and desolate wasteland. Today however, Keiko would remain outside as the Body Flicker technique required space to work.

When she had enough space between herself and her village, Keiko would begin practicing her newly acquired technique. She formed a single seal with her left hand and projected her chakra forwards towards the river. This technique was similar to Kawarimi in which the user uses their chakra to assist in movement towards another location at a speed extremely fast it looked like teleportation. However, the Shunshin no Jutsu allowed the user to move without replacing any object in their wake. If there was nothing around to switch with, the Replacement technique is useless.

She felt herself being tugged at an even faster speed than the Kawarimi technique, her eyes barely able to comprehend and see around her as she moved. In less than a second, the Kaguya was about seven meters closer to the river than she was afterwards. The girl looked back at where she once stood and noticed nothing left behind. This technique was awesome. She continued using Shunshin towards the river, learning its practicalities with each use of the jutsu.

Once she was by the river, Keiko summoned two of her fire clones and asked if they could keep watch of the surroundings while she practiced in earnest. Keika and Kei both nodded and went opposite directions. While the 'maid' stayed behind on the southern side of the river near the original's location, Kei had used a combination of Suimen and Shunshin to cross to the other side.

Sweet moves.

What does she want to accomplish here for the Body Flicker Technique? Aside from lowering the amount of chakra used to perform this jutsu, she would want to be able to use it quickly and at a moment's notice. This would mean lessening the amount of time it takes for this jutsu to go into effect. Would she be able to? It also looked like the maximum distance for her Shunshin was about seven meters. Can she double that? There must also be other things she could improve once she gets to know the technique more.

With that initial analysis done with, Keiko began practicing the first part of her task today: granting more control over her chakra to lessen the amount needed to perform the technique. She made a single sign with her hand and focused on her destination, projecting her chakra to where she wanted to go. The girl made sure to concentrate on chakra flow she's sending out, lessening the amount she's using every single time she's performing the technique.

Kei and Keika were looking at her every once in a while, watching her zip this way and that as she did her Body Flicker movements.

Getting better at controlling her own chakra flow was something she wanted to seriously improve on, not just for specific techniques or the like, but in general. Having better chakra control meant that you could fine tune parts of daily life and live better as well. She read in a book once that having some mastery over your own chakra will allow you to sleep better, feel better, and have more energy for every day life.

Keiko held a single seal in her hands and focused chakra out of her body and into the direction she wanted to move. 'Shunshin!' The girl dashed forward with the aid of chakra and came to a stop just shy of seven meters from her starting point. She would perform the technique again, focusing on the amount she uses while molding it more efficiently to give the same output. It would take a few tries but the silver-haired girl was fairly certain that she would be successful in this within the next couple of hours.

Said couple of hours later, the Kaguya was successful at reducing the amount of chakra she used to perform Shunshin to about half her original amount. She tried going further with other techniques, but it seemed like the maximum for efficiency was half. Time for a break!

Food time~

What was on today's menu?

Not fish! Not spaghetti either! It's pizza~!

Today, earlier in the morning, the Kaguya went into her kitchen and began making pizza dough by adding flour, salt, and some yeast. She added water and olive oil and began kneading carefully and caringly, hoping to put all the ingredients together and make the dough. After it became smooth and springy, she put it aside and began warming up her oven. While it was getting ready, she cut slices of tomato, mozzarella, and sausages and pepperoni to place onto her pizza.

Once the ingredients were prepared, she began rolling out the dough until it roughly became circular in shape. An X amount of time passed. The pizza dough was laid out on a baking sheet, her toppings were prepared, and she started baking her pizza. Keiko would wait in front of the oven, occasionally peeking inside to see if it was crispy and golden.

When it was finished, she cut it into slices and packed it neatly into her pack. Back to the present, Keiko took her slice from the warmer and unwrapped the pizza she made in the morning. Because it was still in the toaster, the slice of pizza was still crispy and warm. Oh how she would enjoy this very much.

Keiko brought over her two clones for a quick break. While watching each other's backs, the three joyously partook in the pizza while reviewing amongst themselves how Shunshin could be achieved with better results. Aside from lowering the amount of chakra used to perform the technique, she wanted to use the technique faster than before. It seemed that after holding the handseal, she still needed to wait a few moments to move into her new location.

Keika also mentioned that she always moved in one single direction while performing the technique. Now, the Kaguya didn't really think about that this trail of thought before but now that she thought about it more and more, if she always moved in a single direction, then her opponents will be able to tell where she will be going. Keiko blinked her eyes and looked down at the pizza slice before her. If she could remove the physical tell of which direction she was going, then that would give her a slight advantage over her opponents.

Kei said that twenty feet was a decent amount of distance for traveling, but he wondered if it could have been extended as well. Keiko would do each of these tasks one by one. Starting with a quicker cast time. After finishing with the pizza, they began to resume the practice of the Shunshin technique.

Well to be more specific, Keiko resumed her practice of the Body Flicker jutsu. Kei and Keika both kept an eye out for an Akuma. The deserts of Akarigakure were unrelenting and ceaseless. The heat that bared down from the sun heated the sand below which added to the temperature of the surface. Because of the river which made plantlife flourish near the water, the temperature around the river was a lot more normal and more bearable for all kinds of life. Humans and Akuma alike.

Hence the extra eyes. Should a random Akuma come charging by, Keiko wouldn't probably be able to catch it in time.

Shunshin and Kawarimi were two movement abilities that utilized high-speed movement to perform actions. While Kawarimi needs to replace the original position with another object, Shunshin allows the user to simply move without doing anything else. This allows one to move vast amounts of distance in a relatively short time with the aid of chakra. The physical toll this might give to the body would be another matter entirely.

Keiko flipped through the seals for the Shunshin Jutsu, concentrating on moving to her destination as fast as possible. After a moment, she felt the tug once more as she moved about seven meters away. The eyes of her clones were really astute and the Kaguya was rather impressed. Doing by herself, she would have never really thought about stuff like maximum distance or the tell-tale sign of moving in a direction before actually moving. Of course, if she would see her own clones performing the technique, she would probably have been able to see what they were talking about, but studying yourself while doing it is something rarely done.

With that said, she had finished her technique. She would perform it a couple more times, tweaking it little by little until she finally got what she had wanted to do: almost instantly move the moment she wanted to.

With the amount of chakra used and the time it takes to activate Shunshin drastically lowered, the next ones on the list to complete was the range limit and her telltale sign of moving. She could be able to try to change the direction she moves when she performs Shunshin, but that seemed a bit too far out of reach, at least for the moment.

After resting for a moment, Keiko decided to continue practicing her technique. The first one she was trying to attempt was the increase of range. While it was normal for her to have an effective range of seven meters, she wanted to try to double that. Being able to traverse a greater distance compared to others, the Kaguya felt that it would help her in the long run, no matter how tiring or how long it would take to accomplish that task.

She performed the technique, crossing the span of the river in one take. Kei and Keika continued watch over her and the overall surroundings. While they continued surveillance over the area, they too kept themselves busy, performing extremely short jumps while keeping a lookout. After a while, Keiko felt drained of chakra. Constantly performing the Body Flicker technique made her exhausted and she felt like she wanted to sleep.

The sun had already begun setting in the sky and night was going to approach soon. Calling it quits for the day, Keiko headed back to the village so she could sleep for a long time.

[Open]

On her way over to her dilapidated and ruined building, Keiko periodically used her Shunshin as practice, sometimes heading straight towards the ruins while at other times heading off across the river or upwards towards a decaying tree. She found it rather interesting that she could use the Flicker movement to head in an upwards trajectory; as long as she had solid ground beneath her initially, the girl could move in any direction.

This continued for about thirty minutes straight until she finally reached her destination. Seeing her modified building in the distance, Keiko slowed down her pace and began walking. Normally the walk/run would take about an hour, but with the continued use of her Shunshin technique, she was almost able to cut down her travel time by half. Pretty cool huh?

The girl would walk the rest of the way to her secret hideout, keeping track of any people who may have followed her or were lying in wait. Seeing and sensing no one with the use of Chikaku as well, Keiko relaxed and restarted her use of the Body Flicker jutsu, using high speed movement to travel in a crooked line towards her base.

Rather than immediately going inside the ruined building to her bunker of sorts, the silver-haired teenager of sixteen used Shunshin in conjunction with Ki Nobori to hop between the trunks of the trees next to the river. Because of the sticky properties provided by the Tree Climbing, she was able to stay on and push off against the tree to speedily move between trees with the Body Flicker assistance.

Practicing good chakra control was a decent warm up for what's to come later on. Creating several new techniques since she was out in the wilds for practically an entire year, Keiko needed new survival techniques that she had to polish now that she had the chance.

"It's really been about an entire year since then."

Keiko held a single seal one more time, attempting to use her Shunshin jutsu once more. With a push of her feet against the bark of the tree, she performed her high speed technique to land right next to the ruined building. After another quick cursory check using Chikaku using all extra senses, she headed down the hidden stairway towards her underground training room.
