Aki_Hana,where did you get this from?
I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days.

Yea, that was very good, did you write it?
Reach high, for the stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream preceeds that goal.

Aw, gee, thanks! Ok, this isn't as good as the comic, but I will continue with the next three paragraphs...

My parents died when I was really young, about when I was six. It was a closed casket funeral, the dreariness hightened by the grey weather. I wasn't allowed to see them, to say goodbye...
The next day I was sent to Japan to live with my aunt and uncle. Aunt Rosa was my mom's younger sister, a spitting image. She had long blonde locks that trailed down her back, crling slightly. Her green eyes alsways seemed to smile, and her lips in a grin.
She taught me many things, such as how to read and write, Japanese customs, and some of the history. I especially loved it when she played the shamisen (*).
Uncle Lee was a martial arts master, who trained me everyday, believing I would become something great. I attended his sessions with fellow students and soon becoame the top of my class. After, when everyone else had left, he would teach me the secret ways of the samurai.

(*)shamisen is a banjo-type instrument :D

Ok...so it's a work in progress...like I said, with a comic book and can illustrate some of these details, but I had to go back and rewrite it like this *shrugs* hope it's ok...
