Neji, Rock Lee, Tenten, and Gai were at their normal training grounds, well training. It was a nice sunny day and the birds were chirping to one another about simple gossip and daily tasks, and the squirrels were chitterling and dashing about in the non proclaimed competition of who could gather the most acorns before winter.
"Gai- sensei," Tenten complained. "I'm bored of training how come they never do anything fun?"
"Training is fun!" Rock Lee exclaimed jumping up in a fighting pose.
"Why Lee! Youthfulness just oozes out of you my precious student!" Gai said happily. Tenten rolled her eyes and took a seat on a nearby stump.
"I think Tenten is right." Neji commented.
"Fine we shall have a small break, to renew our youthful energy." Gai said sitting down on a rock. Neji leaned up against a tree and closed his eyes. Lee began to pace around impatiently.
"How long is this break?" He asked. "I'm bored."
"I will entertain my youthful student!" Gai suggested.
"Like what? A fairy tale?" Neji laughed sarcastically. At this time Rock Lee's eyes grew in size and his mouth hung open slightly.
"A story!" He yelled happily." I LOVE stories! They are just so extremly youthful and amazing!" Lee ran over to Gai and sat cross-legged in front of him. Gai rubbed his chin thoughtfully.
"Ok," He said." I will tell my youthful students a tale." Lee clapped his hands excitedly
"Do you even know a story?" Tenten asked.
"Well no, Gai said which caused Lee's face to fall drastically before Gai added," But I'll make one up, about… a… princess!"
"What's the princess's name?" Lee asked.
"Um…," Gai said looking around untill his eyes rested on Neji. "Nejini, yes Nejini the princess!"
"A princess?!?" Neji yelled. "You made ME a princess!?!"
"No I made Nejini a princess. Not you. You share no characteristics what so ever," Gai said matter of factly. "Any way back to my story, Princess Nejini had long dark hair and light eyes and bandages on her left arm and leg for no apparent reason and a tan…"
"Hyuuga robe? By any chance?! You've just described me as a girl!" Neji yelled angrily. Gai left out a huffy sigh.
"Nooooo, I was going to say tan pretty princess dress." Gai said.
"Yeah tan pretty princess dress." Rock Lee repeated and then added "Tell me more!"
"Ok well Princess Nejini, NOT Neji! Lived in a big castle and one day decided to go frolicking trough the forest singing and picking purple daisies." Gai said.
"I do no such thing!" Neji imploded.
"Stop interrupting Gai- sensei's youthful story." Lee whinnied.
"Thank you Lee, as I was saying Nejini was frolicking and singing and picking flowers. Until suddenly a big giant monster thingy came!"
"A giant monster thingy? Sensei can't you be a little more creative sometimes." Tenten commented.
"Fine, then suddenly the horrible and ugly Tetenasaurus came!" Gai said.
"Ugly?" I shouldn't have said any thing." Tenten said sighing. Lee laughed and turned around. "Tenten that monster sounds just like you." Tenten attempted kick him.
"Hey, can I get back to my story now?" Gai asked. They both nodded. "Good, now the horrible and ugly Tetenasaurus roared and scared princess Nejini with her ugliness, so Nejini hid behind her flowers. Tentenasaurus began to cry, because though ugly was not that horrible. 'I'm sorry I roared.' Tentenasaurus sobbed. Princess Nejini forgave him and decided they should go on a life threatening adventure."
"Why?" Neji asked.
"Well, because… um… uh do I need a reason?" Gai said. Neji sighed. "No I don't! So I will continue. So they were walking along, and walking, and walking, and walking, and walking, and BLAM! They decided to stop for chicken and ice cream."
"Chicken and ice cream!?! That's their big life threatening adventure? This is so stupid." Neji said.
"Looks like some one is getting a little involved with this story." Gai laughed.
"I am not!" Neji said turning away.
"Well any way they stopped at the local diner but they wouldn't let Tentenasaurus in on account of being so ugly."
"Why are you so mean to Tentenasaurus? He's not THAT ugly is he?" Tenten asked.
"Yes." Gai said simply. "So Princess Nejini went in and purchased the food but she didn't have any money. Then a really big strong evil bad guy ninja person came and took Nejini away and she couldn't get away because she was so weak. No one could save princess Nejini but then, the super hero, the flying green beast came and saved her and beat up the evil bad ninja. The end."
Lee began to clap enthusiastically, Tenten rolled her eyes, and Neji just ignored them all. Gai smiled proudly. The noise of rustling leaves and voice soon filled the area. It wasn't long before team 7 was visible through the brush.
"Whatcha doing?" Naruto asked.
"Gai- sensei just told us the most amazing story." Rock Lee exclaimed.
"Cool I wanna hear."
"No!" Neji and Tenten said at the same time. Gai looked at the quizzically.
"I think it wouldn't hurt," Gai said "Ok so there was this princess Nejin…"
