The faint dribbles of a basketball in the emptiness of a small neighborhood in Kazoku-cho echoed faintly as Naruto played around with it, scoring a few casual baskets with ease as if he had practiced the sport for quite sometime. Naruto never had a nack for sports that made him excel like other students, but his fancy for Basketball always struck true to him. He never wanted to complete professionally, as he never had a drive to do so. In short, it was a mere hobby to the boy.
As another 3-pointer effortlessly makes it’s way through the hoop, Naruto gave another one of his grins, mentally patting himself on the back once again. After grabbing up the ball and his backpack, he began his return back home. A rather uneventful day at school, a lukewarm reception to the newest chapter of JoJolion, and surprisingly? Little to no fights occured for him. It could’ve been possibly the dullest Tuesdays he had the pleasure of operating in, to say the least. Regardless, dull is sometimes good. No issues from the parents could make this day a little bit better…
If it weren’t for him returning way too late at night. So late that he was breaking curfew. After giving a curious glance to his watch, Naruto sighed and began to pick up his pace with his walk, leading it into a small jog.
"Yare Yare…" Naruto thought as he stuck a cigarette in his mouth, only to remember that he didn’t bring his lighter. "So much for a dull night."
