Don't Fear the Reaper

Post by TheLacarix » Thu Apr 09, 2020 2:47 pm

Now it was time.

Time to start a fresh, like a butterfly finally realised from its cocoon, Yoru, the Bannin of Konohagakure was a new man, the Bannin was no more. Hiding, healing and now in prime condition to make his return to the world, to put his stamp on not just the shinobi world, but the entire world.

The early evening sun cascaded across the sky, ripples of purple, reds and oranges. Yoru was silhouetted against the backdrop, stood purposefully on amount of red spider lily, his green haori over his shoulders and a large straw hat tipped over his brow. Stepping down, he moved through the fields running his fingers against the petals, they almost felt like silk, crumpling under his touch drifting to the ground below.

What was Yoru to do with his new found freedom? Get revenge on Konoha? Destroy the world with some convoluted plan? Retire as a hermit? The possibilities were endless and if the man was been honest with himself, he had no idea what his plans were. Fow now, he'd pesure Seledar's Market, a place filled with debauchery and villainy, whore houses, seedy bars and to Yoru’s knowledge a hub for bounty hunters.

Stepping into the market, it reeked of sweat, blood and lust. His eye’s darted beneath the straw hat, searching face after face desperate to find that skull once again. His eyes met with that of a woman, he quickly moved them away, but it was too late. A whore, with poorly applied makeup that was wiped across her face, a ripped kimono stepped towards him with a large smile on her face exposing what little teeth she had. The smell of cheap perfume filled Yoru’s nostrils. He slowly stepped back as she opened her mouth “Need a little company cutie?” Yoru gently shook his head and moved away.

Her fingers grasped around his bandage covered wrist, pulling him towards her “Why are you in such a rush?” Yoru pulled his arm free, he moved so gently and purposefully she didn’t even detect his arm was free from her grasp.

Seledar Market, a heaven to the sleazy, half of the goods where possibly stolen, drugs were sold nearly openly and prostitution was running rampant. This was truly a place for the wicked, a place for the lost and damned, a place for sinners. Nehan grit her teeth but not as hard as the man in her clasp, the greasy pimp was easily hoisted by his throat with a single hand, his men were scared out of their minds as they had never seen a woman perform such feat of strength. Their biggest mistake was not knowing who this white haired witch was, for they had only ever heard of Nehan with her black hair and face tattoos.

Her silver eyes gazed over at his men, her stoic expression were nearly as cold as the aura that drenched the attic they were currently standing on. None of them really knew what the white haired witch was doing here as she just barged in, moved through the dozens of men and took on their pathetic slashes as if they were giving her an acupuncture, she turned her head sideways to indicate that they shouldn't move or else they would feel the pain they have forced onto their workers. See what they didn't know was that she had been contacted to deal with this particular whorehouse as it was the leading ring, countless of women near this village had been kidnapped and forced into work, what most didn't know was that Nehan specifically dealt with revenge quests.

"Look, look, I give you anything you want, please just let me go!"

"Just like you let those women go?"

"Is this what it's all about? Well then consider them free!"

"Like I'd fall for that!" Nehan snapped his neck like a stick, turned around and tossed him onto his hardwood table, his goons watched in terror as he not only produced a disgusting crack that burst the table into shards but bounced and produced a massive hole behind Nehan. The orange light created a "holy" silhouette around her as she raised her arms. "Step forward those who want to repent for their sins, or face dire consequences." Her eyes darted back down at the cowards that faced her as she prepared for the oncoming massacre.

I really need to master how much force I use Nehan grunted, still not reaching for her scythe as she knew that these weaklings would only dull her weapon.

His hand gently placed on the back of each of the patrons in the market, searching, not entirely sure what for, a new life? Work? The woman with a skull for a face. Would this even be the right place for him to find someone like that? The legendary Bannin of Konoha wasn’t overly used to places like this, it was nothing like bustling farming markets he was used to. It seemed a sordid, a place of nothing but debauchery. Rather than the smell of fresh produce and farm animals, it reeked of blood, sex and narcotics.


Yoru’s attention was taken to the right, as rubble soared towards him, he side stepped as a man came soon after landing on a clump on the floor. A silhouette of a woman could be seen where the hole had come from, a crowd started to appear gathering around the hole all trying to get a good look.

Yoru’s gaze was brought to the man, who surprisingly was still alive… just, he was jittering on the floor obviously having a spasm as froth was pouring from his mouth on the ground below. Yoru thought it best to put him out of his misery, whipping out his kunai, he pushed it into the mans throat finishing him off.

Standing up, the new rouge shinobi stepped forwards towards the woman, gently pushing through the crowd “Excuse me.” He muttered softly, he needed to see what was happening “Excuse me.” He said more firmly, pushing a little harder as he edged towards the figure, as he got closer he realised who it was.


“Nehan.”

Nehan stepped closer to the goons who prepared to make a dire choice before she heard a very familiar and annoying voice ring through the market. See, she had done a lot to stay under the radar but at the same time she invited people who were after her to try their best, though this was clearly not the best time as she was on a very important mission to restore the balance between the wrongdoers and the unjust, Yoru's voice had cut her ears as nails did when they ran down a metal pipe.

Gritting her teeth, she ignored him for the time being as she was still focused on the foes standing in front of her, until she snapped out of her frustration and realized that she could still be attacked from the rear, though she knew that she had to keep up the facade, for if she was to be feared then she had to show both him and the thugs who was running the show and not cower in fear. Though the fact that he was a renowned Bannin didn't escape her train of thought.

This fucking guy and his timing. Nehan pulled out a kunai and tossed it at a target standing in front of her, the kunai did not pin him, rather it created what appeared to be a massive hole in his chest, though it had been tossed with enough force to break the body of the first goon yet stick to the wall behind him, showing an impressive knowledge of both force and technique.

"Aizawa, Yoru I really hope you haven't come here to try to take me home as you know what happened last time you tried that." Nehan chuckled as blood started to fill the room. Now I don't have to use my own blood to create the seal.

He gritted his teeth, as Nehan seemed to completely ignore him, did she known he was a rouge shinobi now and was at ease? This seemed unlikely, Yoru was presumed either MIA or Dead, very little people knew he was still alive. Little was perhaps an understatement, they only person now, was the woman in front of him Nehan.

He exhaled from his nostrils as a snorted a chortle of laughter as Yoru thought back on the last time Nehan and Yoru had met, she’d got the better of him that time, but he wasn’t fighting to kill. Though Yoru wasn’t that many anymore, though he wasn’t here for a fight, not this time.

“Kijo, Nehan it has being a while.”
He scratched the back of his head “Bring you home? You and I have no h-"

“BOSS!”

The voice interrupted Yoru, a thug had his hands wrapped around the brothel owner, shaking his dead body as though there was a chance to bring him back, it was long past that point. Nehan had done a number on him.

“Get over here now!” The thug yelled, a few others came running. He pointed towards Yoru and Nehan “Those two.” Yoru’s hand threw up, as though protesting his innocence, not that it would matter. The thug pulled out a tanto, charging towards Yoru thrusting at him.

Before the hug had even made step, a kunai was within Yoru’s grasp in an instant he swung the pommel up ramming it into the thugs jaw, shattering it in an instant. He screamed out in pain, clutching his jaw. Yoru lowered himself down, sweeping the thug, knocking him to the ground, who now passed out from pain. Another two thugs we’re coming towards them, one lunged at Yoru trying to hold him down while the other drew a katana, going for the back of Nehan’s head.

Nehan chuckled at the thought of getting to kill Yoru once and for all, but the slight change in his demeanor was clear as day for the veteran missing nin, his eyes lacked the "I am a hero" glow that they used to spark. I have seen those eyes before, eyes that tell of a great betrayal... Nehan wasn't sure if he was undercover or not but for the time being he didn't seem to aim to attack her.

Gritting her teeth and clenching her weapon, she would slash at the remaining goons, before they could make up their minds. Due to her overwhelming strength she didn't need to strike them as the force was strong enough to create a wind blade that sliced them in half. Though before she was able to turn around, a katana struck the back of her head, bouncing off her extremely durable skull, her eyes went black before she reached out and grabbed the confused thug.

"I will make certain that you pay for that." Nehan slammed him on to the ground, making sure that his legs and lower back broke, to make sure that he couldn't leave. She used the blood from his protruding wounds to create a seal but had yet made the contact to activate it, she turned around to watch Yoru handle the thugs before she exclaimed. "If you want to fight me Yoru then this is not the right time, as I am not in the mood to leave anyone alive, especially a Konoha nin who has hunted me previously. So I advice you to leave me be." Nehan didn't turn around as she wanted to show him that she was in control of the situation, while deep inside she hoped that he truly wasn't there to fight her, as she wanted to complete the mission for the sake of cleansing this place of what she considered unholy.

The goon charged towards Yoru, swinging a blade with an obvious lack of any ability, Yoru countered in a matter of moments, withdrawing a kunai and lowering himself down beneath the strike. Swinging the kunai upwards across the ‘goon’s’ spine, as he landing in a clump on the floor, now paralysed.

Yoru’s eye glinted with a hint of enjoyment from the thrill of the battle, his gaze turned to the powerful rouge kunoichi known as Nehan, as she seemed to be dealing with the goons a little too well. It was no surprise they offered no threat to either of them.

Tilting his head as Nehan spoke he rolled his eyes as a benevolent laugh escaped from his lips “Don’t talk with such confidence Nehan, we both know you’re too slow to kill me.” Though in all honesty in close quarters like this, Yoru would likely be sliced in two in a matter of moments, he’d struggle to create the distance between the two. Though in all honesty he wasn’t looking to fight right now.

With no more of the Goons attacking Yoru he was freed up and left Nehan to her own device, leaning back on the wall she’d created a large gap in “I won’t interfere with your mission, but do be quick.” He said with a flash of a grin.

Nehan grit her teeth at the remark, he was right, she wasn't the fastest fighter but deep down she knew that her area of effect damage was too high for most ninjas to deal with, though to be honest she was somewhat glad that she didn't have to destroy the entire market as most people needed their homes; not all of them were monsters.

Her eyes darted from him over to the scared crowd before they landed upon the leaning ninja. "Why are you here, if you are not hunting me?" The witch turned her back towards Yoru before she reached for his blood with her scythe, transforming her pale face into her old tattooed face and her hair black, she had now turned into the witch that was.

The wounded goon looked on in terror as he knew that something bad was about to happen, for the sacrificial ritual was nearly complete, she had hoped to use this on the leader of the pack but forewent that strategy once he pissed her off enough to break his neck, though thanks to Yoru the goon was dead. So he would do as a sacrifice instead for he had injured Nehan.

She began to chant something in tongue before she reached for her telescoped spear then jammed it in her heart, instantly killing the paralyzed thug, while all she felt was the heavenly light douse her with extreme euphoria of having to survive such a tense blow. She could feel his soul leaving his body while hers remained intact, a pact created between her God and the ritual. "Thank you Jashin" She exclaimed before she dropped to her knees, it had been a while since she sacrificed someone and was being a bit overwhelmed, especially when her mind returned to reality for she was now being watched by countless eyes, and one particularly that started to bug her, Yoru's.

Yoru still leaning against the wall, as she asked him what he was doing if he wasn’t hunting her “Hunt? Nehan that’s very rude. I’ve never hunted you, I prefer the word tracked. You were never my pray and you know that, I just wanted a chit-chat is all.” A smirk ran across his face, knowing that he was likely annoying the woman, “And to answer your question why I’m here, it’s a market after all, I’m here for the fantastic bargains. I saw they had some lovely furs outside and I’m sure someone was selling a set of skull shaped earrings I think would suit you.”

He talked over while she performed her strange ritual, he’d heard a little about it but his knowledge of it wasn’t anything of any great extent. He watched as she fell to her knees and seemed overwhelmed.

“If you truly want to know why I’m here, it’s because I’m now free and I’m looking for work. It seemed this place might be a good place to start.” He admitted glumly, he tapped his foot on the wall of the building, Nehan seemed to of cleared house literally. There wasn't much more reason for him to be here, though perhaps should could put him on the right path to find some work. Nehan had to make a living somehow.

Nehan let the tip of her tongue click on the inside of her teeth as she did her best not to remark on his "tracked" technicality as she figured that as long as he didn't psoe a threat she wouldn't raise arms, though what followed sure made her suspicious of his activity, the kneeling woman knew that either way, she had to buy some time as her wounds had not fully healed. She pulled out the spear from her chest and slowly rose to her feet, her hair faded into white as the tattoos sunk into her pale skin, soon returning to her regular old self.

"You think I enjoy the sight of skulls? Please, what do you take me for? A monster?" Nehan chuckled, though to be honest she couldn't blame him for thinking that way, or hell, why most would consider her one, it wasn't as if she had been portraying the "good" side of her long enough to creep over the looming shadow that was her "evil" self.

"There we have it, the real reason as to why you haven't tried to convince me back to Konoha, or tried to attack me. What happen? Did you boys in green dissapoint you one time too many? Did you get tired of being held back? What was it that broke the camels back or are you just another undercover agent that's looking for a death wish?" See, Nehan was still buying time, once her chest wound had closed she would make sure to find out what he was after, even if she had to force it out.

Yoru continued to lean against the wall, tapping his crown of his head gently on the wall in a rhythmic pattern. He didn’t reply as she commented on his joke, simply letting a grin run across his face. He considered buying her a set back at the stall he saw, just for good measure. His smirk grew wider as he imagined her wearing them, snorting as he banished the vision away from his mind.

His casual demeanour may on the surface seem relaxed, but every muscle beneath his green haori was tensed, ready to defend or attack at any moment, within an instant. Yoru’s aloof disposition often put the most tenacious opponents at a disadvantage, though it was unlikely Nehan would be caught off guard.

He listened as she spoke, asking a variety of questions, though he was sure he’d already told her that he was looking for work but she seemed to want to dig a little deeper. Shrugging his shoulders he responded “A death wish? I don’t think I’d come to you Nehan if that’s what I was after, I’d need someone who could actually kill me.” He said with a soft, cool, calm tone. Following his soft tone, an even equally soft sigh escaped his lips “If you really must know, your dearest friend Kenji was working with Konoha.” It was likely this wasn’t knew information to her, he knew Nehan and Kenji had worked together in the past, he’d even fought the pair “If you really want to know, he made an attempt on my life. I got ambushed, I messed up. Nearly killed me, left me to rot.” He admitted glumly, there was no point hiding the truth “Whether Takeo knew or not, it doesn’t matter, because of his actions I nearly died.”

Yoru’s felt a surge of anger flood over him, the thought of getting his hands-on Takeo the man who betrayed him and wrote his death sentence. Though his demeanour showed nothing of this, keeping his exterior calm and collected as though it didn’t matter to him at all, even though most keenest of lie detectors would struggle to see past Yoru’s façade.

Nehan chuckled and shook her head, all this teasing wouldn't lead them anywhere, what she wanted to know was whether or not he had a true death wish. Because she could tell by his energy that he seemed rather lost, like the head that once stood up high was now swooping. It wasn't the way he spoke, nor was it the way he carried himself but the window to his soul, his eyes, they weren't as dim as they used to be.

Nehan spat on the ground next to her. "I'd keep his name out of your mouth." She still held honor for her deceased friend. I can't even begin to fathom what type of power could take Kenji out but if the rumors are to be true... Nehan cracked her neck and grinned. "Seems like he didn't finish, maybe next time you won't be so lucky. Maybe next time I'll hand you our precious Kage's head on a platter." Nehan chuckled as she started to walk diagonally from Yoru.

Though she kept her eyes on him, she couldn't help but to wonder why he was surrounded by such strange energy, something about him was different and it was starting to bug her.

Yoru smirked as Nehan spat on the ground, shouting out orders at Yoru declaring he shouldn’t speak Kenji’s name, he wanted to wind Nehan up even further as she suggested that she’d bring Takeo’s head onto a platter to him. “Now, now Nehan spitting, barking orders and threatening murder? Being out here so long really has made you so uncivilised.” His eyes glinted with delight Kenji-” he was slow and careful over saying the name, making it clear he showed no fear from the woman’s threats “-must of being a bad influence on you.” He tutted in a mocking fashion and shook his head as she began to walk away from him, Yoru still rested against the wall.

He sighed softly as she was heading out “Leaving already, without even offering me tea? Such an ungraceful host Nehan.” He wondered how she had coped being out here all alone for such a long time, specially without he companion Kenji and he wondered how she’d evaded being caught for so long, it was apparent to Yoru that the ANBU had being slacking and perhaps was struggling under new leadership. Either way, both Yoru and Nehan should of being hunted and tracked down by now.

Don't Fear the Reaper

She stopped on her tracks, she knew that this wasn't the best place to lose her mind but she couldn't take hearing him talk about her comrade in arm anymore, especially after she had warned him. Deep down she knew that she should know better by now, that she shouldn't allow her enemies to rile her up, which was ironically one of the things Kenji had thought her but for the sake of his legacy, she knew that she couldn't let this slip, so she slowly raised her scythe towards Yoru, she didn't say a word yet and instead let the weapon speak for itself for now.

I will not let your name go in vain, I will not let your legacy tarnish and even though we didn't agree on everything, we were still companions, soldiers in arms. Nehan turned her gaze towards Yoru, she knew that he was faster than her, but what he didn't seem to understand that speed had nothing to do with the fact that he was face to face with one of the most savage lunatics on this planet. See, for Nehan, losing an arm was nothing because if worst came to worst she would replace it with a bystanders arm if Jashin so pleased, but would he be as fortunate.

Don't go there. Kenji's words rang through her head. "You are lucky that I am in a good mood, we are not friends and as long as you are not hunting me, I seek you no harm. I only want to destroy the man who neglected my peaceful journey. I am a changed woman and won't be easily provoked, I warned you not to use his name in vain and I hold to it. Don't push me, now state your business, or attempt to kill me and we shall see who's the strongest." Nehan knew that Jashin had always been on her side and she also knew that when the time was right, she would die gracefully, would this man be her death or something else? She wondered, for if he was after her then he would've attacked earlier.

Yoru’s eyes glinted as she slowly raised her scythe, within an instant a kunai was between the red headed man’s fingers, his grasp loosely gripping the sheath, holding it up near the large red bladed weapon. He wouldn’t take Nehan lightly, but he had acquired a variety of skills since they had last met, and he wasn’t the same opponent from their last bout. Before he wasn’t concerned with killing her, simply capturing and trying to bring her home peacefully, he’d become cold and uncaring now, he wouldn’t hold back like before.

“You may do as you wish Nehan, threaten me all you like but I will say whoever’s name I wish and I will say it whatever tone I wish, I will speak ill of a man who made an attempt on my life if you take offence to that, it’s your problem.” His single hazel eye glared deep into hers, there was no fear from him though he couldn’t see any in her eyes either “Though if we fought now, it would be in vain. You cannot die and I’ll let you into a little secret. Neither can I.” He wouldn’t divulge his techniques, they weren’t as apparent as Nehan’s or as effective, but death was not an option for neither of them “You’re correct, we aren’t friends, but our goals are the same. The death of Natsuki, Takeo.”

Something is definately up with the boy scout, he is usually more happy-go-lucky... Nehan couldn't put her finger on it but she knew that something was up, why wasn't he as cheerful as he used to be, why wasn't he here to bring her back to the ever so joyful Konoha? What had changed? This all started to bug the witch but she tried her best not to let her face reveal what lied within in, after all, most thought of Nehan as a buffoon hellbent on destruction, something she had been long trying to amend.

"Fine, just don't do it around me unless you want to start something that apparently won't end." Nehan chuckled and flashed her fangs, she continued to listen to Yoru speak and things seemed to escalate towards a path she had never thought him go down. She wasn't sure if she was excited or being lead blindly into a trap. Are you telling me what I think you are saying? Nehan chuckled and rested the scythe on her shoulder before she shook her head.

"Well, why didn't you say so in the first place? If we have a common goal then try to start with that the next time, that way I don't go all "I'll kill you." on you." She nervously laughed, she wasn't used to pretending to be her manic self, but figured that this was the perfect spot to interject her maddening persona. She wasn't acting all buddy buddy for no reason though as she still kept her guard up, just she didn't feel like she needed to antagonize anyone who wasn't out for her head, see, Nehan could be civil if actions required it.

His finger slipped into the pommel of the red and gold kunai, spinning it around before sheathing it within the holster around his leg. Nehan seemed to of relaxed, it seemed his comments put her at ease, at least for now. It was good to see she could at least be more rational, not swinging her blade blindly. Though he pondered if he’d of pushed her just that bit longer what would she of done?

As she made another comment he shrugged “We’re free men and women now Nehan, I’ll say what I wish and if you choose to kill me, then it’s a risk I’ll take.” He snorted in response. He eyed her up and down for a moment taking her in, the crowd of people still glaring in “Perhaps we should go somewhere more private, I have a proposition for you.” He muttered quietly.

Assuming Nehan agreed, he’d lead them through the group of people who seemed to be staring in awe, authorities would soon be on the way and it wasn’t that Yoru and Nehan couldn’t handle them, he just didn’t want the hassle. The pair slipped through an alley way and back out of the other end, heading towards an inn. The ex-bannin of Konoha placed some ryo onto the bar and bought them a room. Leading her up the stairs he opened the door and closed it behind them.

In the room there was a small single bed, a chest, a single chair and a small desk with a pitcher of water and some glasses, Yoru headed towards the desk and poured three glasses of water, one for him, one for Nehan if she wanted it and the third simply sat there. He pressed the glass to his lips and took a large gulp, gently placing it back on the desk. Pulling up his sleeve and showed her a golden ring, on his left ring finger, it had a crimson coloured jewel that dazzled in the light, with a black spider lily stamped on to it “I’ve joined an… Organisation, perhaps even founded it. It may be of interest to you.

Nehan shrugged, she knew that he was right but it still didn't mean that she wasn't someone to defend her comrades, she eyed him for a while then nodded. She knew that if he was there to set her up then major destruction would ensue. Though she chose to focus on not being paranoid, a small fault that had followed her from her rough days. one could never be too careful, even though she is near immortal; or so it seems as of yet.

"I don't mind staying out of sight neither, though be warned, if we are free and we can do what we want then we sure better hope that we don't bump heads." Nehan grinned and flashed her grills.

She followed him through the crowd and down an ally, the further they got the more anxious she became, though her outward appearance seemed rather calm. They continued into an inn, which caught Nehan by surprise, but she continued anyway. Her arm was resting on her hip, while her eyes were locked on Yoru. She was in no mood to destroy an entire village over something that could be avoided, yet ultimately knew that she could slip up and lose her mind.

Nehan watched Yoru pour three glasses, another surprise. "I didn't know there would be three of us?" Her eyes locked with the third glass then darted back towards Yorus as a grin grew on her face. I really don't want to destroy this inn. Her hands still resting on her hips, she knew that a stomp would suffice to create some distance, but a third party could easily overwhelm her if they came prepared. Her heart slowed down as she fought the urge pump up her adrenaline, luckily her mind was focused on what Yoru said and calmed down the instance his words touched her ears.

"Ah, another one of those... You know they all sell the same speech yet show no action, leaders disappear and groups go there separate ways. In fact, I probably should sacrifice them down for knowing too much." Nehan chuckled and pondered whether it was better to leave faith for them meet again or if she should hunt them down. I'll let Jashin decide.

Yoru and Nehan were alone in the room, they’d attracted very little attention as they’d moved through quite discreetly. It was apparent Nehan had worked out a third person would be arriving, but that was Yoru’s intention to give her a clue, so that she wouldn’t be caught by surprise.


A smirk ran across his face as she spoke so nonchalantly about organisations and perhaps a hint of distain, though it was no surprise to him she’d been betrayed often and a variety of groups and let her down and now she was alone. Yoru had tried for months to bring Nehan back to Konoha and now perhaps finally he could bring her into the fold of something new. Though he wasn’t sure, the rest was up to her.

He shook his arm free of his green haori, a golden ring on the end of his pinky finger was exposed “I’d like you to meet someone.” As he channelled chakra towards his finger, physically nothing was visible to the naked eye, but soon he would arrive. At least Yoru hoped.

Shio stood at the top of the ridge, looking behind him a crowd of people, around 80 bodies, was following his guidance. They trekked slowly but surely, a warrior clan many of them would be undeterred by a long journey. It’d taken quite a bit to convince them to this point. As he stood there looking back, he noticed the surge of chakra coming to the ring on his finger and sighed, ”Kesu.”, he called. The small blonde haired boy would lift from the ground quite a few meters behind Shio and float over to him quickly, landing softly in front of the child. ”I’m being called for, it appears. Continue east, I should be back shortly.”, he instructed. Kesu nodded without a word, and Shio responded to the ring, allowing it to wisk him away into thin air.
Stepping down through the portal, Shio looked around momentarily, trying to take in his surroundings. Some secluded room, he couldn’t quite tell where they were since they were inside. Looking at Yoru, he nodded before turning his attention to Nehan. Not a face he’d seen before. Looking at the woman she was….quite interesting to say the least. But, Shio was hardly one to judge. He’d developed a knack for collecting the unusual, Nehan was no different. Though perhaps too old.

Taking a step backwards now, he crossed his arms.

”A new recruit?”, he asked Yoru, seemingly not even acknowledging Nehan yet. ”You’ll be able to send me back from where you just pulled me from, right?”, the idea of having to run back to his people rather than just being dropped there was…less than ideal.

”I’m Mistaki, Shio. Charity.”, he shrugged. ”And you are?”, a simple question.

Nehan sighed and shrugged her right shoulder, she had already experienced the art of teleportation before and knew that whoever would step out of there, no matter what, would possibly be strong enough for Yoru to consider her of all people the introduce. What have you gotten yourself into Yoru? Seems like I can barely recognize that chipper ol' hero. The witch chuckled as her eyes turned towards the portal.

What is this?

A kid?
Her eyes narrowed as she continued to stare at the young boy. He can't be much younger than... A twist of thought patterns swirled around her head, she wasn't ready to face a child and was taken back. "Nehan." Her eyes changed to a darker tint, showing life signs again. She hated these moments, her head said yes this good while her body was standing prepared for the worst; though she rather not harm children.

"So, now that we are all here, let's get down to business."

Nehan grabbed a seat and began to drink from her tea, she knew that if she at least played along then she would always try to steer the fight away somehow, or maybe land some kind of deal, who knows, she tends to try to keep her mind set in stone but her body had been trained to not handle closed encounters well. Luckily she had trained her temper since the time had passed, the newness of it all got her nerves excited.

As the portal ripped open the air in front of them and the young child known as Shio stepped through it, his eyes darted to Nehan her reaction said it all she wasn’t expecting someone so young. A child almost as powerful as himself, perhaps even more so and as physically strong as Nehan. A true prodigy.

Yoru still pondered how powerful the boy could reach or had he already reached his peak? He’d only heard of beasts and gods achieving higher peaks, even Yoru had ascended past the normal limits even for a shinobi. Likely the boy would soon do the same.


The Ex-Bannin of Konohgakure nodded in response to the new recruit and tapped his finger on his eyepatch once Shio asked if he would be able to take him back, as though whatever beneath it held the secret to do just that. Yoru plunged his hand deep into his haori and pulled out a brown pouch and chucked it in the air for Shio to catch, withinside it were the rings he'd picked up from the jewlers and all had been effected with Yoru's jutsu, allowing them to be linked together.

Yoru hadn’t very little to add to the conversation now and would sit on the edge of the bed, fold his legs and let the two talk until it was time to take Shio home.

Shio frowned, scrunching his brow together as he took a seat. Taking the ring from Yoru, it would fall into his hand and then disappear up his sleeve. Shio had a habit of storing things in his sleeve and had small pockets built into the interior. Purely a matter of convenience. Looking at Nehan he couldn't help but notice she was a interesting looking woman. Her comment caught him off guard too, "lets get down to business"? Did they have any business they needed to conduct? It was purely introductory right? He sighed, scratching his chin as if he was 70 years his senior. Looking at Yoru, then back at Nehan he nodded.

"Well, business right now is purely existence.", he said with a shrug, "I'm not sure what my friend here has told you.", he gestured to Yoru, "So I suppose the business would be to ask what you know, and what you want to know? How can we help you, and how can you help us?", he said thoughtfully. Looking her up and down again, he took a cup of tea, waiting for her response while he took a sip. Shio didn't have some grand plan, this wasn't an organization meant to cause chaos and disarray across the world, or to register peace. It was a protective service for those who's life acted as a signal for danger.

"Where are you from, Nehan?", he'd interrupt her, not waiting to hear whatever thought she was making before he spoke. "Are there people after your heard? Do you live on the run?", he bombarded her with questions rather suddenly, but they were good questions to ask. Both to understand where she came from, and what should would offer, and if he should be on alert with her around him.
