However one individual could feel the gloom lingering with him as he still continued to think about what his mother had said about her being pregnant at this age and so late after he himself was born, which was kind of surprising but what came after was his father's words on how they had previously stopped at him being their only child due to miscarriages so they where surprised and still a little doubtful when she became pregnant once again.
In actuality the well dressed Tsukino was well in the dark previously due to his parents's caution but he started to feel something was up and couldn't stop being curious about it, as such they had finally given in and told him but also made it clear they not getting their hopes up just yet but that things seemed to be going as planned so far with Katsumi taking easy at work with mission requests off the table for now which was actually what started to get the boy concerned.
Whatever the case Nishiki moved through the streets as his red kimono and flowery garb flowed behind him in full elegance in bright contrast to the dark weather and his own dark mind; thoughts on if everything would be okay still lingered as he went to go see how his mother was doing, though in a way he also wondered if he should really be caring so much and if it truly had anything to do with him and yet he knew it did for it was his family for whom he was anchored.
After a brief stroll through the village the young chuunin made it before a grand, enchanting, yet somewhat small Muramasa building that was one of many guest houses under said family of which this one was one of the few licensed for gambling and so most people that stayed where gambling patrons aiming to make big bucks on long winning streaks, though it never often worked out as such for them.
The fox's fading pink ears twitched and his tails swished in delight as he stepped through a back door as the guard rolled his eyes and let him through, still unsure about letting some kid in just because he was related to one of the lead managers but nonetheless the was nothing he could do. Once the kid was in he quickly found his mother who had found some free time for him, which seemed quite easy since it was a slow day with only a few certain customers staying in and away from the mist so that they could gamble away their money.
"Nishki" a delicate and serene voice called out "Came to see your dear mother again?" the voice trailed as a beautiful, gracious woman with vibrant pink fur stepped over to the counter to see the boy, her three tail swaying with grace and joy.
Nishiki nodded with grin and looked up as the woman reached out and ruffled her hand through his hair with utter delight.
"You know you don't have to keep checking up on me right?" she questioned rather sternly "I am fine, even if-"
"Even if you lose it again?" the boy replied with concern, cutting off what she was trying to say "What if even this work is too much?" he added
"Now now" he hushed him "You know how easy I am taking things, it will be fine" she reassured which did help calm the boy's worries just like always, though he wasn't sure why he was even so worried but maybe deep down he was happy to get a sibling after not having one all these years which was a kind of giddy thought.
After being reassured the boy then took out a cute looking packed lunch he brought so they could share it a bit later after they discussed a few other things, though as they started to get into a discussion another woman came around the corner and called out Katsumi with urgency in her voice "Umm, miss Katsumi, sorry to interrupt as I know you set some time aside for an early lunch and all that but there is some man out front asking for you" the woman explained politely, causing the elder fox to shake her head in annoyance.
"Hold on, I will be right there" the ever so graceful woman replied, motioning with her hand towards Nishiki as if to say to wait for her to come back
However Nishiki was still a little concerned and always filled with intrigue when such things arose, as such he quietly followed and took a sneaky peak through the open door to watch as a large, irate man started slamming the desk as he shouted about losing his money and how it was all the cheating manager's fault.
"You!" he screamed with a great temper "It's your fault I am on the brink of becoming one of those dirty untouchables" he called out, pointing frantically at Katsumi as she stepped out to confront him "You tricked me into wasting my money here with your false games of chance!" he continued to yell.
"Now, sir, if you-" the woman tried to get his attention and calm him down but he had no intention of stopping and in fact something very unexpected happened.
Normally it was impossible for any guests to get through with any dangerous weapons or to even pull off any dangerous jutsu due to all the measures taken at such an establishment, though for some reason, somehow, on this murky day this man suddenly pulled out an explosive kunai and chucked it at the manager causing her to go flying back and in turn causing her son to stagger away from the door in shock.
"Shut up and die!" the man yelled, grabbing the attention of the security as the stormed into the room.
Unfortunately it was a bit too late as a hidden katana then appeared from the man's mouth and he swiftly drove it through the pink haired woman's stomach, twitsing it hard, causing her throw up blood before collapsing.
"Mother!!" screamed a shrill and frightened voice from the corner as Nishiki stumbled round the corner with his right hand outreached before suddenly charging forward without thinking, though the hulking man knocked him back with a powerful kick before also stomping on the woman's head and pulling out his sword.
With the blade removed the vicious entity went for another attack before finally being stuck down by a large spear as a black fur'd fox dashed through the room and dropped down low before the man whereupon he thrust into his chest.
"Dammit!" the angry fox exclaimed in disgust at his own reaction time, perhaps still distracted by letting Nishiki into the building earlier.
As the agressor stumbled back in pain Nishiki stood back up and rushed over to Katsumi, breaking through the guard who was now focused on the attacker who was not having any of it and still prepared to fight with his life on the line. Another staff member came over and pulled back the boy who was full full of shock with tears starting to run down his cheeks.
"It will be okay, the medics will rescue her, you have to escape" the woman said as calm as she could
"B-but... But... She... Mum..." he muttered all distraught as he was rushed outside, his own eyes glimpsing his mother's closing and seemingly fading away with the young foetus inside her possibly utterly destroyed.
Whilst guards started to surround the raging man inside, the young chuunin was sat down on a step outside as the woman tried to comfort him and assure him everything would be fine and even pointed out how the guests where now being rushed out like him and how medics would be on the scene soon enough.
However the boy's mind began to spin in turmoil as his biggest anchor seemed broken and he started to think it was also somehow his fault; maybe he was distracting her being at her work or maybe she shouldn't be at work at all like he thought and maybe he could've replaced her and other such thoughts including on if the baby would even make it even if his mum did.
"Pathetic!" rumbled a menacing voice from within, dragging its host down into the deep waters of his consciousness as the two bubbles began to swirl around each other in a chaotic whirlpool.
"You would cry over such a useless thing?" Yoshimitsu taunted as Nishiki now looked on in despair "Then again you humans and your family business, so disgraceful, us Genma have no need for such things and would gladly be rid of each other but even then are you truly going to let all this just unfold?" he went on, really laying into the jinchuuriki's feelings with a menacing hidden grin.
"If you are so upset then surely you owe it to her to rescue her yourself and take down that pitiful of a man with your own power... my power" he taunted further.
Nishiki did not know what to think but he did realise that his mother truly was the most powerful anchor he had and that he could not lose her no matter what and he felt all sorts of chaotic emotions; fear, sadness, anger, pity.
Everything seemed like so much that he couldn't help but slip and crash right into Yoshimitsu's hands as their bubble full on collided and Nishiki was thrust right at the demon with its sharp, bony claws instantly reaching out with a massive pulse of chakra that sent their minds whirling up through the water and right into the air as a chaotic storm formed all around.
"If it truly is your fault then this will be the right path to fix things, this will be all you need to save your mother and destroy the man that tried to kill her!" the genma bellowed out more causing its host's thoughts to twist and turn towards darkness.
Death completely filled Nishiki's mind as Katsumi laying on the floor surrounded in blood burned in his eyes and with it he was shaken back to reality as he slowly got up, breathing heavily in a panicked state and even pushed the woman aside as he stumbled towards the wall and tried to hold himself up with his shaking arms.
"Mo... ther... Please..." he muttered in pained short breaths before a large shroud of magenta chakra burst out of the glowing seal on his stomach and instantly shrouded his body.
"Gaaaagggghhh!" he screamed in deep pain as his body began to transform; the black rods extended, his ribs pushed out until they pierced the skin, horns pushed out the top of head almost like a crown pointing in each direction like a compass with a spike pointing up in the centre.
As these occurred the chakra tightened and darkened and his mind went into further turmoil until he suddenly heaved and staggered backwards and his body began to change even further than before; the ribs pushed even further out until they where fully exposed, then his hips and elbows grew outward and pushed right up against the skin and then a dense looking black chakra ball formed above the now larger crown of bone.
"GGGGAAAAAGGGGHH!" the monstrous jinchuurkiki screamed in despair.
Within Nishiki's turmoiling mind the bubble was fully flung from the twister and into a large area of rocky land, forming a massive crater as the bubble smashed and the pair of beings tumbled, pieces of earth flying up as lighting struck all around them and fire erupted from below.
"Hahahahahahaha! Yeeeess!" bellowed the devilish giant spirit who instantly got up and slammed down on his pathetic host with all his might forcing his power into him as their shared mind-space reverberated like it could explode at any moment until the boy was finally unconscious and the beast was in full control.
As this happened internally the external being glanced again at the guest house as another explosion rang out within, pushing more bad thoughts into him.
"M-mo... M-moth... eerrr" he quietly cried before losing consciousness
As the last parts of humanity seemed to slip away the remaining beast bucked and thrashed once more, the poor woman looking on in fright as the chakra tightened and darkened further as all his bones pushed out further and grew into a menacing, jagged look. The black ball on his head spat out 10 more smaller balls one at at time as they curved around the back like a disconnected chain.
Once all was done the whole body was occluded back dark grey chakra forming what looked very much like Yoshimitsu himself but in small human size, even the fox tails where compressed and held close to the body like thin bony whips.
"Ha... Ha... Haha... Hahahahahahaaaaaa!" bellowed a loud demonic laughter as the grey, dangerous looking being stood up straight with arms spread wide with glee.
"Stupid, pathetic child, you are now done for!" the beast then screamed in a deep thrilling manner.
With transformation complete Yoshimitsu had full control and simply needed time to husk the body that still bound it and break free of the shackles of the seal, though as the morphing had began one of the few guards that still kept an eye on Nishiki had already sprang into action and went to look for help having sensed the boy had lost control with their sensor abilities and others had also came to take action after hearing the commotion.
"Get out of my way pathetic ants!" the genma yelled as he then saw some guards come out and other shinobi already arriving on the scene.
As Yoshimitsu yelled he used a skill yet unknown to its lost host to pump chakra into the ground before shattering it apart and sending rocks flying in all directions with a kinesis he had yet to also learn, knocking one man out of the sky as he leapt towards them and slamming others into the building walls.
Yoshimitsu could feel the power coursing through him though he was still somewhat limited by the vessel he still needed a way to discard he could tell it would be enough to dispatch any of the pathetic weaklings that came for him, though the fact remained that it was not quite the full power he needed or wanted and so he needed to find a way out of Kirigakure as fast as possible before some higher ranked shinobi emerged.
The path of freedom began to open up before the genma as wind now began to swirl around his captured host's body and propelled him up into the air like a tornado, from which he quickly gathered the surroundings, though it was a bit difficult to see too far due to the mist he still began to recognise where he was thanks to being able to see through Nishiki all this time and he prepared to head northwest and simply fly over the village walls.
Though as he was trying to grasp his whereabouts there was a small lingering feeling of uncertainty, something pulling at him and distracting him from leaving if only for a brief moment; the clear signs that the boy was still inside somewhere and that his consciousness was indeed not yet fully gone and could still be brought back to the surface to combat Yoshimitsu.
