[Chunin Exam] Live off the Land

mission scrollShow
Early in the morning, while the predawn light colored the sky in streaks of the red spectrum, Tenjirou Shigekuni was pulled from his bed, none to softly. A sack was pulled over his head, pulling his already groggy world into darkness. He heard one, singular whisper Do it! before pressure was applied to his temple, and he swam in a sea of irreality.

When he came to, it was obvious that time had passed, though it was difficult (without sensory help) to determine how much. The drip of luke-warm water splashed his face and echoed throughout the dark structure he found himself in. The floor was rock, and it was too dark to be anything but the bowels of a cave. His head did not hurt, nor did he feel groggy at all: in fact it was as if his first experience waking was a dream, and this was his restful rejoining to the world.

In either case, the darkness gave him no clues. As he thought that, a small flicker of light bloomed and traveled down the twisted caverns toward him- illuminated the jagged cave's twists and turns. The flickering was faint at first, and appeared to grow in intensity and steadiness. A faint scratching could be heard as well.. though the acoustics in the cave system hid little from any pair of perceptive ears. The sound, unlike the light filled the room and felt like it was coming from everywhere. It was time to figure out what the hell was going on.

Waking up, Shigekuni could guess this wasn't a dream, especially since he never did have dreams this lucid. Feeling himself over in the dark, he felt his usual clothes and equipment on his body and shuddered at the thought that someone dressed him after kidnapping him. Looking up, into the darkness, he saw a light flicker in the blackness and stood up as he watched it waver this way and that as a scratching noise filled the cavern.

'Joy, I'm stuck in a black cavern with scratching noises and a single light source off a ways. What the hell, might as well check it out, not like I've got any other stuff to do right now.' Shigekuni thought to himself, wondering why he had even been kidnapped, but that brought the thought up of who would kidnap him in the first place, let alone dump him in a dark cave. Seemed a bit odd, but Shigekuni could get answers when he got out of the cave and back to Suna... assuming he was even in the same country.

Blocking further questions from his mind, Shigekuni made his way slowly and quietly toward the light source. His ears were on alert as he moved, trying to hear for any noise around him that might give away some kind of danger.

Indeed he was dressed, and as he made his way toward it, the light source seemed to grow stronger, filling the immediate area (a twist in the cavern to the left) with flickering light. The scraping sound stopped abruptly, and a short human sound filled the area. It was a half-groan, half sigh- the voice was not quite a man's but not still a child's either. Though echoing made it difficult to pinpoint where it was from with some form of enhanced hearing, it was simple to ascertain the noise was not too far off.

A simple check of his person found that his weapons and equipment were meticulously placed as well- someone must have taken great care to set this up. Almost like.. it was meant to be. How strange.

After a few seconds of silence the scraping started again, accompanied by an angry muttering voice.

Shigekuni could only assume he was going the right direction as he heard the noises made by someone, or possibly something. Moving through the dark toward the light, Shigekuni took careful and silent steps as he moved through the dark. Every time he went to take a step, he stopped his foot a little bit over the ground before delicately placing it on the ground, doing so to reduce the noise he made as he walked while also checking to make sure he didn't just fall into some random sinkhole or pit in the dark cave.

He tried to focus his hearing to see if the light source was also the source of the noise, but it was bouncing off the walls to tell for certain unless he got closer. Good thing that was his plan, moving toward the light as he kept his wits about him, his eyes scanning through the cave for any sign of.... anything that might be posing a possible threat to him, minus the spikes of earth that were probably growing from the roof of the cave. Taking a quick glance up, he tried to see the ceiling but didn't know if he could or not given how dark it was.

Facing forward, Shigekuni continued through the dark, wondering where the exit was in this place.

Moving cautiously and quetly paid off. The muttering voice became louder the closer he got- mostly curse words and self-depreciating language. Whoever it was wasn't happy. Approaching and timidly turning a corner, it all became clear: a young man, dressed much like himself, was trying whole heartedly to chip away at what looked like a caved in entrance. Light pourded in from the top of the cave in, as if it was meant to be found but not accessed at this time. The boy held a kunai, stabbing the rock in futile attempts to move it. No matter how much force he put into the blows, not even so much as a pebble fell to show progress.

He muttered his anger while he worked. The noise and his voice providing decent cover for Tenjirou to act without be noticed.

Shigekuni would move quietly behind the nearest cover and watch the other person work, trying to make out what they might be saying. At this junction it was better for him to know who he was stuck in here with; a friend of a foe.

"I'm not ready for this, not ready.. I can't stay here.. I can't! Just dig your way out.. but the walls won't give, I need a shovel! Why can't I just go back home.. next year maybe next year I'll take it next year or maybe two years.. Sensei shouldn't have pushed me to this it's not fair I don't even want to be a ninja, I don't want to stay in this cave let me out.. I'm not ready for this, not ready... I can't stay here.. I can't! just dig your way out.. but the walls won't give, I need a shovel! Why can't I just go back home.. next year maybve next year I'll take it next year ormaybe two years.. Sensei shouldn't have pushed me to this it's not fair I don't even want to be a ninja, I don't want to stay in this cave let me out... I'm not ready for this.. not ready..." Hm. Something seemed strange about this set up.. Considering the intellect of the young man, a few things became apparent. Not only were the same words used but the same exact intonations, as if it wasn't just repeated, it was mirrored perfectly every time. Strange. Getting closer to the young boy Shigekuni would note the repetitious movement of the digging- it wasn't different spots, it was the same, exact spot over and over and over. Strange.

Something sure was going on here.. but what? This particular twist held enough shadows to hide an army, but nothing stirred, at least he could hear nothing over the sound of his own heart beat in his ears... how would he proceed?

Remaining hidden, Shigekuni examined where the other person was digging, then glanced up at the hole that permitted light into the cave. It had to be day time outside, which meant that if Shigekuni could find a way out soon, he might be able to get his bearings, otherwise by the position of the sun. The wall must have held some key to escape from this bizarre darkness, but the boy also seemed bizarre himself.

Repeating himself over and over, hitting the same spot but not making a dent... Perhaps this was genjutsu? If it was, Shigekuni more likely than not did not possess the skill to escape the technique, have less than stellar skills in that particular field of Jutsu.

Genjutsu: nothing strange about his chakra network, and his training would at least have taught him that much. His surroundings did not change, the only strangeness was the company Shigekuni currently kept. If the Genin crept closer, he would note a tag on the back of the robotic looking young man.. a tag made of paper that held various fuuin symbols on it. He'd have to get closer to see what the symbols said.. but that was up to him.

The young man remained locked in his loop- stabbing the wall furiously to no avail, repeating the same phrase over and over. The corridor led onward into the darkness and around a curve. What would he do?

Shigekuni noted the tag before reaching up on his back to feel if perhaps he had been given one hismelf. If so, he'd attempt to remove it before walking over to the boy quietly in order to see the fuuin paper that was on his back. If anything, he might have to talk to the boy if he couldn't figure out what was going on with the wall and the cave on his own.

There was no tag on his own back- and depending on how close he got the tag on the boy's back could be recognized as an explosive tag. With a quick calculation a tag of that strength (one tag, 3 power) was more than enough to cave in the rocks the strange boy was sitting in front of. It was a strange occurrence, truly, but perhaps this new bit of information locked in the previously gleaned bits of information for the Genin. A cave in would be disastrous at this current junction. Good thing the tag remained in tact...

Shigekuni reached out, slowly and quietly, toward the tag. He wanted to remove it from the boy quickly, before getting his attention. However the tag got there, it wasn't a good thing that it was there in the first place. Who ever put it there would hurt the other boy seriously if they detonated it.

As Shigekuni reached out for the tag, methodically ensuring he was not noticed, the strangest thing happened. A clattering sounded from what sounded like very far away. The clattering was accompanied with a curse, and the boy right before the Suna Genin winked out of existence, leaving a puff of smoke, and the tag he'd managed to grab (without detonating) in his hand.

It was a clone.

Waiting patiently for someone to walk by and attack it, this little trap would have been the end of any overeager Genin- but lacked the flawless touches of a master ninja. The trap was designed for the hasty: someone who would shoot first and ask questions later. Obviously Shigekuni wasn't such a one- one quality of a successful Chunin.

The clattering sounded once more as Shigekuni found himself alone in the small cave. The darkness beckoned to him, among the clattering and curse words words that grew more frantic-sounding by the minute.

If he chose to continue in the care, he would find two large glowing chakra-lamps illuminating a rather large circular room. In the center of that room, A young man is engaged in combat with what looks like some sort of insect. Hard to make out at this distance, but whatever it was, the young men seemed to have his hands full with it.

The sound, the clone vanishing, the free exploding tag; Shigekuni wasn't sure what the hell was going on any more than he did when he woke up, but the swearing and the clone meant that there was someone else here. Shigekuni could only hope they had answers for what was going on. Making his way through the darkness, trying to follow the sounds of fighting without rushing. The last thing Shigekuni needed was to find some deep dark hole in this cave and fall in it.

It was then that Shigekuni remembered to check for something most important and reached into his equipment pouch. Sure enough, he could feel the three short candles and the box of matches he carried with him for such situations but didn't curse himself for it. Darkness was his ally at the moment and he didn't wanna betray that temporary truce, let alone waste the light since he saw some ahead from the sounds of combat.

Peering at the source of the light, he saw lamps. His gaze did not linger on them as he looked to the boy and the bug it was fighting. Reaching behind him, Shigekuni pulled the pieces of Ikazuchi out and swiftly assembled the large mochi hammer in record time, holding it close to him as he stayed in the shadows. The last boy he saw was a clone, perhaps this was another ruse. If the actions repeated themselves, Shigekuni wouldn't rush in. If they didn't, then he'd move in to strike at the bug and question the boy.

pic of buggy bugShow
[img]http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs23/i/2008/ ... ox.jpg[img] The bug appears about medium dog sized.


It appeared that Shigekuni was not watching a ruse. The boy was fighting rather desperately for his life, and the bug appeared strong and relentless. The boy wasn't gaining ground- the bug seemed to be superior in the majority of aspects: at least to the naked eye observing. The cave seemed to vibrate with the clash of metallic weapon against armored flesh, the grunts of exertion and the skittering sound of the bug attempting to secure a meal worthy of it's size. On the other side of the large room seemed to be a path sloping upward around a corner. The walls were solid rock and naturally formed, so they had ledges and such that an experienced rock-climbing enthusiast could make short work of scaling it. There seemed to be a walkway about 15 feet up that could be accessed. In the center of the room the battle raged- neither party backing down. The hammer was assembled and the young man to Shigekuni could be fairly sure the man fighting was not an illusion as well. The time for action was now.

Explore the top pathway, help fight the bug, cross the room and check out the sloping path in the back of the room. which would he choose?

'Better to risk an ally and have options than be left completely clueless to the situation.' Shigekuni thought to himself as he gripped the hammer and slipped from the shadows. He didn't make it his aim to be silent, but he hoped the bug would be too distracted with the other boy to notice his rapid approach. Getting close to the bug, Shigekuni brought Ikazuchi above his head as he lunged up into the air, swinging down with all his might toward the bug in an attempt to crush it beneath his hammer.

Taken by surprise, the bug was completely smashed and splattered over the boy fighting it. "Aaak gross!" The boy was covered in goop, shaking himself out of it, ringing it from his long hair and brushing it from his clothes as quickly as he could. "A little warning next time ey? I got half a mind to.." Taking a second to pause and look over Shigekuni, the Genin stopped and shook his head. He was HUGE! ".. to thank you.. to thank you so much giant guy with a giant hammer..Listen I give up, ok? I totally do, you win I'll quit being a ninja as soon as we get out of this place.. ok.. just keep me away from those bugs, and don't mistake me for a nail. I'm Zaitaru. Just call me Zai. Or don't call me anything, just don't hit me!" He backed up a bit and held his hands up defensively, but in a "non combative" style rather than defending for an attack.

Shigekuni pulled his hammer from what remained of the bug and looked at the other boy as he talked. Swinging his hammer, Shigekuni forced the bug bits and gunk off his hammer as it splattered on the ground away from both of them. "I don't plan on hitting you unless you start attacking me. Frankly, you looked like you needed help with that." Shigekuni nudged the dead bug on the ground with his sandal to indicated what he meant by 'that' before shifting his gaze back to Zaitaru. "My name is Shigekuni. Are you a Suna shinobi? Also, I can only hope you know a way out of here, let alone why we're here."

"More importantly, do you know if any more of these things are around?" Shigekuni asked before placing the head of his hammer on the ground and leaning against the shaft like it was a walking stick. His posture was more relaxed, but mostly to get Zai to see he wasn't there to fight him. Of course, that wouldn't stop Shigekuni from pulling his hammer up in a heart beat to smash him one if he tried to attack.

"I just saw the one, man.. and I'm a Genin just like you. I just woke up here man, how'd you get down here?" The young man looked around nervously. I don't wanna die down here.. and just after I put in to be a stupid Chunin.." He pointed toward the sloping downward path, shaking his head. "I woke up down that path. I came through, set a trap, and then on the way back to investigate this room, damn bug just showed up out of nowhere!" He shrugged and tried to play it cool, tossing his short black hair with a shaky hand. "I would have beat him though.. I mean eventually." Looking upward, Zai sighed, walking toward the wall to find a foothold to start climbing.

"Yes, I just woke up in darkness here as well. Have you found possible ways out yet? And don't say 'I would have taken them already', I'm talking about possibilities not guaranteed ways out. Cause I'm betting we won't find a simple exit." Shigekuni stated before dissembling his hammer and placing it back on his belt. He followed the boy and watched him climb the wall.

Grabbing a foothold, the young man began climbing. "I'm betting up is the best way to go. I haven't found anything but this- and to be honest if I did find an exit, I'd still have to beat you to be a Chunin, so I wouldn't have taken it. But after this mess.. man forget it, I don't wanna even be a ninja anymore. I can make a living doing literally anything else that doesn't get me locked in caves with giant bugs and shit. Forget that, if this is just the lowest level.. I don't want to see what else I have to do to be relevant here." He shook his head and kept going- it was fairly apparent that he was agile, and strong by the look of his climbing. It was strange, him being so casual, and yet so skilled at the same time. He made his way up the wall with chakra tipped fingers and toes, scrambling up the wall without much a problem.

Shigekuni looked back behind him, where he'd come from before disassembling his hammer. "No better leads other than that caved in area you left the clone, so I guess we can try." Shigekuni started finding foot and hand holds before slowly following up behind the other boy, leaving space between them so they wouldn't have any problems with one slipping down into the other or the wall not supporting both of them at the same place.

The wall presented minimal problems for the two ninja, and soon they found themselves scraminbling to a ledge that seemed to expand into a walkway. It seemed most of it was carved out of the rock, suggesting, quite obviously that it was man made. The path led in two directions, one, further upward, where a small breeze stirred and beckoned the two ninja, it seemed the air wasn't quite as stale as it was on the lower level. Zai cheered quite loudly and started jogging forward. "I bet the way out is right up here! Man I'll be home in time for dinner. I wonder how I'm going to tell my parents I'm done with this stupid ninja non-sense. My mother will probably freak out more than my father will. Ugh I don't even want to think about it. Hey man hurry up!" He hadn't really been looking around, but before the path got a little to dim to see easily, Shigekuni would note a strange substance on the floor. It wasn't everywhere, mind you- at least not everywhere on the floor, but it was a pale white color, and it seemed solid. It looked a little like fresh wool, stretched tight over some rocks- clinging to the walls as well. How strange..

"Wait!" Shigekuni called out in a hiss, pointing to the floor. "For all we know we might pass through a nest of these things. And this stuff doesn't look like something that belongs in a cave unless there are spiders about. We need to move slowly and carefully. If you wanna run in front and get eaten alive instead of moving as a team then be my guest. You won't see the village again with that kind of mentality. We might be rushed to get back to the surface, but that doesn't mean we can lose our cool or get ahead of ourselves."

Shigekuni pulled out a kunai and some shuriken, holding them at the ready in case something emerged from the shadows to snap at them. He moved cautiously and carefully forward, taking a moment to lower himself down to a knee as he kept looking around for threats. Glancing down, he pressed his kunai to the wool like substance and tried to lift it up so he could take a better look at it.

It was sticky, but smooth.. like silk. Just then, a skittering stopped Zai in his tracks and sent him back toward the other Genin. "Hey maybe you're right man let's stick together.. you having that big hammer and all, yea.. I should be behind you.. you know.. to have your back, I mean.. I'm not the best fighter and all but you know.. your back ain't gonna get attacked when I'm around.. well I mean not without me warning you... I remember I was in the Academy, and Hiruzen was just takling away and Oji was sneaking up on him, right?" A rather large spider emerged behind Zai, crawling twoard him as he made his way back to Shigekuni. Aparently Zai was oblivious to it. "So I'm like "look out fool!" but it's too late. It's the thought that counted, anyway, that's what I'm saying man I got your back. Me, yep" It was nearly close enough to strike- would Shigekuni save the man, or let the spider take him and use that opportunity to progress without hindrance?

Shigekuni watched Zai run his mouth the entire time he was walking back toward him and a spider emerged. Not hesitating, Shigekuni shifted to the side and swing his arm, releasing the shuriken he was holding toward the spider. "Quiet! You're walking through a gods damned nest of spiders and you wanna make your presence known? You're gonna leave us no choice but to run headlong into danger if you don't stop making so much noise." Shigekuni hissed while trying to keep from being as noisy as Zai was. Moving forward, the tall Genin attempted to catch up to his witless partner as he waited to see what the spider would do, kunai at the ready.

"Um.. what?" Turning and jumping almost three feet in the air, Zai drew a kunai and threw it deftly right between the spider's eyes. His movement was flawless, his aim perfect- even the way he held his body after the throw was trained: ready for defense, and reactive. But it was gone in a second- so fast Shigekuni could have imagined it. Zai stumbled as the spider died where it stood, hissing a bit for good measure.

The hiss appeared to echo through the halls- or maybe the sound they here wasn't echoing, it was simply answered by other spiders. Either way, Zai began to cower, running back up to Shigekuni. "Ok ok. So what now, I say we run, there's only one way to go, it's up, so it's gotta lead out, right? Lets just .. well lets just get the hell out of here!" The path, singular as it was, sloped upward, and appeared to open into another large chamber. The air was less.. stuffy up here, suggesting that somewhere nearby, there was some type of vent- which mean some type of exit.

Meanwhile, the hissing grew closer, and the skittering began once more. The chamber was fairly large, dark in all areas except one- firelight flickered and burned in a corner, giving shadows around it life and power. That was their only beacon of light, lest they were able to create their own. Nothing moved in that small pool of firelight, and by the outlines of rock they were able to make out, it seemed the path was clear. But for how long, was anybody's guess.

"I don't like this at all" Zai shrugged and awaited the leader's direction.

Shigekuni just stared at Zai with the most deadpan face he could muster as he wanted to slap him. He obviously had his training and was skilled enough to do it from what looked to be muscle memory before he reverted to his 'passive' self as Shigekuni was labeling it. With a soft sigh, Shigekuni just grabbed the other boy's arm and started forward at a steady pace, not bothering to worry too much about any protesting he might have made as he started along the path.

In time they came to a room with a fire in it and Shigekuni blinked as he glanced over at Zai, "Let me guess, not your handiwork?" Shigekuni put forth to the other Genin before releasing his arm and pulling a few things from his pouch. Placing a short candle in the lantern he carried with him, Shigekuni struck a match and lit it, providing more light for the pair.

Checking behind them first for more bugs, Shigekuni would then check the room to see what it looked like by using his lamp.

Zai let himself be drug down the path and sighed loudly in protest. He kept his mouth closed though, it seemed the encounter with the spiders shot a little fear into him. Once they entered the large room, it was apparent that there were no bugs behind them, they seemed to all be pressed against, crawling up, or spinning webs alongside the walls. The pool of light Shigekuni created was like a barrier- the spiders didn't seem to want to penetrate it- some hissing and shrinking away from the light as they passed. The torch was within their grasp- and on the side of the room by the torch, a climb that looked like it led to pure, unadulterated sky. If they could make the climb unhindered, they would be home free.

Zai scratched his head. "How do we carry the torch and climb?"

As Zai asked his question, Shigekuni looked up at the whole and saw it was big enough for the two of them to leave through. "The art of tree climbing should solve that problem. Minor technique so we can just grab it and go. I'll keep watch for threats, you go on ahead." Shigekuni stated as he scanned the room for more spiders.

[Taking this over since Tsedas has tried to contact Mino but he has not replied.]

Slowly but surely, spiders were now beginning to fill the room. There were too many to count at this point as they came in waves. The duo would have to leave as soon as possible if they wished to survive the incoming danger.

"Let's go!" Zai cried as he applied the jutsu to his feet and started running up the wall. Shigekuni would have to go quickly if he wished to escape the oncoming mass of 8-legged death.

Or die trying.

Shigekuni kept a trained eye on the spiders moving into the room as Zai started to make his way up the wall. Channeling chakra through his feet, Shigekuni prepared to do the same himself as he backed toward the wall leading up to the blue sky. Turning on his heel as the spiders closed in, Shigekuni jumped up and scrambled up the wall as he got to his feet, running the rest of it as he made it out of the cave. Tossing his lantern aside, he drew several of his shuriken and kunai and kept them at the ready as he watched and waited while moving away from the hole to see if anything would come out into the light of day to attack him.

The duo would make their way out of the hole in the ground where the desert sun shone brightly on them, beating them down with heat.

They were free.

"We're free! I can go home and can quit being a ninja! YES!" Zai went on, tears pouring from his eyes.

Then the ground rumbled and a screech emitted from the hole in the ground.

The hole in the ground busted open, a 15 foot tall spider emerging from the ground with venom dripping from its maw. It screeched again as it found its prey. Two genin.

Shigekuni seemed more let down then frightened by the size of the creature as he didn't hesitate to throw all the weapons in his hands before he brought them together into a hand seal. He started to move backwards quickly as he moved through a series of hand seals as he kept his eyes glued to the giant spider. "You might wanna back up behind me, but don't run away, we haven't gotten our bearings yet." Shigekuni issued the statement like an order as he kept going through seal after seal.

Forming the last one, the Genin held his hand up like he was holding something only to have a javelin of lightning flare out from his empty grasp. Holding it, he took aim and threw it at the ground in under the spider despite the close distance. "Also, you might wanna duck and cover!" With that, Shigekuni dropped to the ground as he waited for the impending explosion that would follow.

[Chunin Exam] Live off the Land

Post by Niro » Wed Jun 24, 2015 4:10 pm

The spider just took the weapons like they were nothing and screeched again. The blinding spear of Raiton appeared in the shinobi's hand and the spider spat some spider silk at the child. The spear ripped through it but the spider had skittered away, letting the spear fall harmlessly into the dunes behind them. A cloud of dust and sand kicked up but no damage was done to the beast.

"WHAT DO WE DO!?" Zai cried as he fell to the ground and cowered in fear.

The spider screeched again before it made its way towards the two in a zig-zag motion.

"Same thing you do to any insect," Shigekuni rose to his feet as he pulled out his hammer and assembled it in no time. The spider was making it's way toward them and Shigekuni charged, "Squash it!" Leaping at the spider, Shigekuni raised his hammer high and brought it down, aiming for the beasts head, if anything, he wanted this day to be over.

The spider screeched as it charged the boys. It thought it would be strong enough to devour the two and return to its nest to grow larger and stronger.

Boy, was it wrong.

Shigekuni's hammer smashed its head into gore and the body dropped like a rock. There was no doubt that the beast was dead.

Shigekuni had shown the prowess of a chuunin.

Within an hour, a jounin from the village would come for the boys and grant Shigekuni his new title of chuunin.
