Teaser Tuesday #172

Ed ecco di nuovo la rubrica settimanale Teaser Tuesday, creata dal blog Should Be Reading, che si divide in poche, semplici fasi:
1_ prendi il libro che stai leggendo
2_ apri una pagina a caso
3_ scrivi un breve brano (stando attenti a non spoilerare)
4_ scrivi titolo e autore

"Two blades affixed in their center like a cross would work better." She considered further. "Or perhaps even three. Like a star."
"Why not four?" Yoshi said with amusement. "Alas, you will never see me wieldng a cumbersome thing like that. Any effective kunai would need to be light."
In one flowing motion, he whipped a blade from its sheath and hurled it toward the same breach. "Quick."
Mariko considered the quivering handle. Yoshi had thrown it to strike the exact same place as before. It fit into the previous divot at a near-identical angle. The way the handle shook - trembled into solid motion - brought to mind Okami and his mysterious abilities.
Mariko frowned.
She did not wish to be reminded of anything she did not yet understand.
Especially something pertaining to the Wolf.
Mariko lowered into a crouch. Picked up a twig.
Began to draw.
Why not four?
