Watching from the trees, Kaiosou smiled warmly as a young boy was punching away at a tree, trying with little success to dent it. It reminded him of himself as a boy, training so hard in a country to which he didn't even belong. A gentle breeze came and with that he was gone.
"Over-exertion will bring the end of even the strongest shinobi." said Kaiosou, as he appeared behind the boy. He placed a single hand on the boy's shoulder and gently moved him aside. "Try it like this" he said, placing his index finger crooked against the tree. Upon straightening his finger, the tree cracked through the center, then fell softly to the ground.
The boy looked up at him, eyes wide with a mix of fear and astonishment. This man had come out of nowhere and shown him the meaning of power. "Wha-- how did you do that!?" exclaimed the boy.
"When you've been around as long as me, controlling your strength becomes second nature." Kaiosou responded with a warm smile. With a flick of his wrist he sent the small fragments of tree bark from his finger to the ground.
"How long have you been around mister? And come to think of it, who are you? My name's Izzy!" he said with a star-struck smile, then looked down at the ground in slight embarrassment. However, when he looked up, the man was gone. At that time, a warm and gentle breeze blew his hair past his face.
