Title: I wanna be a Rock Star
fuda_100 Challenge: Childhood
Katana practice in the Mibu household was an event in itself.
Mainly it involved trying to get Oriya to start using it as a weapon and -not- as a make-shift pretend guitar.
Up and down the hallways he would wander, strumming invisible chords that made music for his ears only.
"Mibu-kun.. get back here and use that katana properly!" His master would shout as Oriya lost him amidst screens decorated in flower embossed paper.
Oriya would just scoff and continue to lose the adult who just didn't understand. Not until later would he truly understand the meaning of tradition.
But for now, Oriya was just a kid. It was allowed.
