Windmill time.

The sense of sound. Hearing things is a great boon to a ninja's repertoire as it allows them to pick up things that their own vision might not see itself. It was training time. The silver-haired girl closed her eyes and sat down on the grass facing the windmills. To her right was the fan that was making the windmills move. Farther off in the distance, she could hear birds chirping and the wind blowing through the trees.

Keiko inhaled and exhaled slowly, concentrating on what her ears can hear. The sound of the windmills as it twirled around on plastic spools was what she could most definitely hear the most, from the number of windmills there actually were to the flapping of the wings. Even with this 'distraction', the Kaguya was intent on listening to other sources of sounds she could hear while her eyes were closed. To her right was the fan blowing wind steadily towards the windmills in front of it.

Far off in the branches of the trees, she could hear birds chirping and flapping their wings, communicating with each other in their own language. She concentrated on these birds in the distance, trying to grasp each beat of their wing and each chirp of their beak.

Keiko opened her eyes and looked over towards the trees in the distance. The birds were most definitely inside the branches of the trees, chirping and communicating with each other. However, the girl was no longer able to hear them. She was able to discern where the sounds of their wings and voices came from when her eyes were closed, but now that they were open and the jutsu effects lost, even if she could barely see them in the distance, the Kaguya could no longer hear them.

One thing she also realized was that she had to remain still while using the 'Perception technique'. She needed to be able to move while using this technique if she wanted to effectively use it during battle. There were many items in a ninja's repertoire that the common ninja has access to that can blind the senses. If she was able to use this technique to her advantage, she could continue battling and/or fighting an opponent even if one or more of her senses were down. She would begin training this particular aspect of Chikoku by closing her eyes and listening in again on the birds in the trees.

Slowly she stood up from her sitting position and noticed the slight dulling of her sense of hearing. It seemed concentration was of the upmost importance when trying to enhance a particular sense. Without wavering, Keiko focused on the chirping of the birds inside the trees. When it was very clear and distinct to her ears, she began taking a single step.

Almost immediately she felt the distinct sounds of the sparrows drown out BUT it did not go away completely. Progress. As soon as she could hear them clearly again, the Kaguya took another step forwards. This tedious exercise continued for little more than a half an hour until she was finally able to walk while hearing the birds at the same time.

The next step was to perform the technique while running; this way, she could use it while in combat to effectively catch any missing details or still sense the enemy should she be blinded or whatnot. This next part only took about ten minutes, as she already understood how to use the technique to her advantage.

The other senses of smell, and sound were equally learned at a similar pace until she was finally able to move around normally without any drop in the technique's capabilities.

The girl was about to leave before she realized she missed one: the variety of objects sitting on the right side of the field. Might as well figure out how the fingertips feel when using the technique. She closed her eyes and activated the Perception technique, slowly moving towards the objects in the distance. She had increased her sense of touch, but it still meant that she didn't know exactly where each object was. One thing to note however, she could feel the slight breeze on the tips of her fingers as well as on her exposed skin.

It was a weird sensation, as if the entire body was being touched by several millions of tiny little needles sporadically. Keiko would notice that she reached her destination when her foot collided with a ball, sending it rolling a few meters. From here, she stopped and sat down onto the grass, feeling around for the next object to get. The flower, or a pansy to be precise, was the first to be touched. It was inside a clay flower pot that was slightly damp from the morning wetness. The stem of the flower was extremely fuzzy, with thousands and thousands of tiny hairs sticking out of it.

The next object was something rather familiar to the Kaguya teenager. She uses it almost every day to eat her breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There were times when she used a spoon and fork, but it was mostly this item. The item in question was a pair of chopsticks: cold, hard, and made of metal. She figured that she didn't really need to use Chikaku any longer and opened her eyes to her surroundings.

Everything was laid out scattered around her, the ball she kicked previously was in front about nine feet away. Other than the ball, it seemed like everything here was basically 'untouched'. She took a quick sniff of the pansy next to her and smiled, noticing its sweet smell. With the technique mastered, Keiko stood up and left everything where it was and walked away back to where her home was. She was hungry and wanted to eat more food. There were still several more Basic techniques to learn, but that could all be done at another day and at another time.

Tsuiseki - Tracking

Description: By focusing only on the trail they are following, a shinobi may block out sights and sounds unrelated to their target. This in turn makes details related to the trail stand out more accurately. This can be applied to any method the user is utilizing to track a target, and does not utilize chakra.
Limitations: The user must already have a trail to follow. This limitation cannot be removed.
Drawbacks: The user may not notice hazards around them; it is not recommended to use this technique alone. This drawback may not be removed.
Cost: -

Keiko was out in the fields near Akarigakure. Next to her were two of her trusty sidekick clones, Keika and Keiku. These two were walking a few meters away from the original while keeping an eye out for any danger like Akuma or people. The Kaguya was heading towards the forest to search for a particular trail to track. There was a basic jutsu that genin were able to learn that enabled them to better keep an eye on tracks and how well they can follow them.

The girl stopped when she reached the edge of a small grove of trees near the river. She looked around at the floor in hopes of finding an animal trail.

After about ten minutes of fruitless searching, she found something rather promising. Hidden beneath a plain looking bush were small imprints dotted on the sandy dirt. Tracks from a small animal. Hopeful, she activated Tsuiseki and noticed how the track slightly popped up at her and Keiko was able to see more of where it originated and where it led.

While her clones were busy being eyes and ears for the Kaguya, she crept slowly following the small trail. Every once in a while, she lost where it was only to find it a meter away. Perhaps the animal jumped up high and crossed over a bush or a log, or etc. In any case, once ten minutes passed frolicking through the trees, she found where the trail led into. A small hole in the ground, it was partially protected and disguised by another bush that seemed to bore fruit. Why the animal chose to burrow underneath this little fruit bush was beyond Keiko's reasoning, but she felt like she was able to successfully get the tracking down.

Keiko spent another few minutes trying to search for another trail to follow but couldn't find one after a half hour. Disappointment clouded her face as she looked up at Keika the maid and Keiku.

"Well, I guess that's it for today. I can't find anything else to track."

"That's quite alright milady. I'm sure you have got this technique down pat!"

Keika gave the girl a thumbs up and a merry smile. Keiku on the other hand was looking out keeping watch. Keiko smiled and looked down at her feet. In their own ways, they always helped her out whenever she needed it, even if it inconvenienced them or they didn't particularly like it. The girl decided to later on do whatever her clones wanted to do. She didn't know terribly much about their hobbies and figured that she would spend some time with each of her personalized clones and see what they liked to do.
