  1. Well house burned down, seeing as all the people I had plots with disappeared, lost of muse and the site beginning to die (activity lowering, applications seem to take longer to be approved, most notably puppet parts seem to have just completely froze and lost of a mod/admin with lots of members), I feel burned out (Quite literally in the case of my hand) and will be checking every now and then, though probably not to thread unless directly asked to.
  2. mission

    As Kenji suspected, Kazuo wanted to question the locals instead of waiting for the bandits or shinobi to attack yet another cart, with a groan Kenji nodded and the duo begun to question everyone. One extremely long cold hour, they must've questioned nearly everyone and the locals seemed to be confused and unsure on the details, they gave multiple different accounts of what had happened, they couldn't agree on one or two shinobi, let alone if they worked as a team or fought against each other, but only a single thing everyone could agree on was the suspected location of the hideout, it was a small abandoned hut that belonged to some old man who died not long ago. With no other alternative, the pair took off to supposed location of the hut that one of the groups used, assuming it was a war between two shinobi. Regardless if there were two groups or not, one thing was clear, the hut was no longer abandoned, Kazuo had his kunai at the ready while Kenji had his hands on his katana that still rested on his waist, this time the pair were prepared and ready to deal with any nasty surprises. However they couldn't hear any sound coming inside and Kazuo decided to blow the element of surprise by knocking on the door, however no one answered it and he kicked the door open, no one appeared to be home anymore, but the gust of warm air rushing pass the pair as they entered revealed that someone was here for sure. "Who knows, maybe we'll find out if it's actually a shinobi or two, or if they're the only group left." Kenji explained as he went off to the wall on the right of the door that had a small chair and a single large bookshelf that was littered with bunch of torn paper and other miscellaneous junk, at first glance it appeared to be nothing more than a makeshift garbage can, but Kenji noticed a single note that had been slightly torn and had a few stains on it. He grabbed the note and dusted it off and begun to read it, "I did what you asked, where's our portion?" Kenji was initially confused about what the note was talking about, but he realized whoever wrote this knew about the bandits, so whoever wrote this probably tried to get some supplies from the bandits and were instead ignored after they did what was asked of them. These bandits were probably smart enough to get rid of whoever wrote this not long after, probably why no one had details of gangs, though is could be anyone's guess at this point. Deciding the note was of no use, Kenji took another note and straightened it out, the note appeared to have been crumbled and carelessly tossed here, confirming his suspicions that this was indeed a garbage can. "We will not be ignored!" There was some blood on the note too, Kenji looked around and didn't see anything that could cause the blood while it rested on the shelf, looks like whoever wrote the notes seemed to have a grudge against the group, so it played into the two shinobi fighting each other. Kenji thought about checking all the paper, but most of it looked like it was from old books and others were completely torn or drenched with an unknown liquid. "Someone doesn't like this group, that's one thing for sure." Kenji explained as he walked up to Kazuo with the two notes, "You find anything?" He asked the younger shinobi, curious if the desk held anything of use, even a single note that follows the miniature story of Kenji's own two notes he found would be good enough. Word Count: 623

  4. I'll be moving extremely shortly and probably won't be able to do anything for 2 weeks minimum, probably for the best, need time to recover from lost of muse and adjusting to work.
  5. mission

    Kenji sighed as he observed the scene before him, the supply cart was attacked yet again just mere days after they had just dealt with the initial gang, someone else must've attacked the cart, Kenji thought for sure Kazuo had killed the leader, the kid seemed pretty determined to punish the bandits and there's no way he would leave them alive. The cart was burned by someone capable of using at least C Rank fire jutsu, though Kenji had no interest in ninjutsu so Kazuo's guess would probably be more accurate than his own estimate. This seemed to have made something click inside the younger shinobi as he immediately asked Kenji if he remembered the leader, to which Kenji simply nodded and waited for him to continue. Kazuo explained the leader must've been fighting an rival gang capable of using fire jutsu, which is why she had oil on her during her fight with the duo, Kenji had simply guessed she used it for making fires and as a back up in case one of the shinobi guarding the cart happened to use fire jutsu, but it was clear, the pair had just tipped the favor to one side in a gang war with the village caught in the middle of it. There were multiple ways this could go down, the absolute worst would be Kenji and Kazuo being forced to handle the two gangs at the same time while in the small village trying to protect everyone, the best case being Kenji and Kazuo only having to report the gangs hideouts and letting a proper shinobi team handle them. But first the pair would have to find out more of the gangs and just exactly how powerful they would be, 4 bandits proved enough of a challenge, Kenji dreaded the thought of having to deal with more of them, especially the shinobi, an amateur trap that the pair recognize was a trap caught them off guard, imagine what professional traps by unknown shinobi could do to the pair! And the fire jutsu shinobi, one hit and the pair might as well just use the last of their quickly draining energy to dig their graves. His train of thought ended when Kazuo asked what they should do next, which was quite surprising, even Kenji had no idea what they should do next, but he quickly thought of a plan, though it had a flaw that the younger shinobi wouldn't approve of so he thought up another one as well. "Well we could always just wait it out and let one of the bandits strike another cart and trail them, though given your opinion on bandits, it's best we just ask the locals what they know, who knows, we might just get lucky." Kenji explained, ending it with a smile, though behind the smile he was dreading this whole mission, back in the freezing cold with mister nice guy supreme against enemy shinobi who could burn off their clothing and leave them to freeze. It was made worst by having to stay out in the cold traveling house to house and questioning random strangers, because Kazuo wouldn't dare risk losing more supplies to the bandits, while Kenji didn't particularly care about scarificing a cart to find them, it's only a single supply cart, they could even bait them with a false supply cart if they had the time for it, but he had a feeling the younger shinobi wouldn't be too happy with that idea, after all it would "hurt" the village.

  6. Kenji would have given up at this point, he just helped kill a doctor and a kid, that was enough pointless murder with the werewolves running around. Though he hated waiting it out because it only gave werewolves enough time to hunt everyone at a slow steady pace, however it sure as hell was better than hanging another innocent.
  7. Kenji had simply sighed as he saw the new dead body, he thought for sure it would end when Akane had died, but she was completely innocent, she just accused the wrong person for the wrong reason. "I'm with Jinpachi on this one, he seemed to know about Akane's innocence and something tells me he knows more than us... So RUE it is." Kenji said, not completely sure of himself.
  8. Bloodline Name | すべて見る(All Seeing) Possessors | Public Appearance | Those with this bloodline are born with an cataract (The lens get cloudy, resulting in blurry vision) in their right eye, but otherwise they appear to be completely normal. Abilities | God's Eye Weaknesses | Partial Blindness - The user is partially blinded in their right eye until they activate their dojutsu, while it's not active, the user has far slower reflexes than others as they simply can't identify objects quickly, forcing the user to take a guess if it's a fist or a single leaf slowly coming at them or charging into their face. The user's reflex essentially matches those of a rank below their own. Track Record - The users aren't exactly meant for straight up combat, instead they are more meant for assassinations, sabotage, information stealing and other stealth based missions, as a result the users strength isn't as good as those of equal rank, instead belonging to those of a rank below their own and also cannot specialize in taijutsu as a result of this lowered strength. Signature Detection - The user must have witness targets use their chakra in an attack to use the God's Eye to it's maximum potential, as without it the user can only be granted regular sight and it should be noted the user is also prone to forgetting chakra signatures. Essentially, the target must use their chakra in an attack (Basically almost all jutsu) to use God's Eye and if a user doesn't have a thread (It can be any thread, as long as target 1 is there, they can also take care of target 2 as long as target 2 is there as well) with their intended target within 5 threads of seeing the target use their chakra otherwise they forget their chakra signature and by extension the power to use God's Eye on that target. For example, I thread with target 1 and he uses a fireball jutsu, afterwards I go do 4 threads with other people that doesn't have target 1 in them or using any jutsu, now I have to thread with the target 1 and see them use a jutsu to maintain their chakra signature.

  9. Name | Puppet Hands Ranking | E-X Type | Offensive Appearance | The hands are usually crafted from the same material of the main puppet's body and have multiple joints to allow the hand to function nearly exactly like a regular hand. The hand itself is usually located on the end of limbs, mainly the limbs that function as arms but can easily be placed onto other areas, such as limbs that act as legs, body, or even head for what ever reason. Material | Usually the same as material used in the puppet's body Crafter | Generic [Not directly crafted by a single person] Description | The carefully placed joints allow the hand to function as a regular hand and easily allows the user to punch and grab stuff using the puppet, the strength of the attack is equal to the ranking of the hand was made at, each rank of the hand equals the strength of a regular shinobi in that ranking, for example a D Rank puppet hand will have equal strength of a D Rank shinobi and so vice versa. The hands themselves are made to behave as a regular human's hands, with each of the fingers themselves sharing the same length 11 cm and width of 2 cm while the palms themselves have the length of 12 cm and the width of 7 cm. Jutsu | N/A [?] Status | Open
  10. I was told by Kabel that it is not the case, in fact Jinpachi even made a thread detailing this problem and making suggestions to avoid having to make simple parts (Such as hands for instance)
  11. Kenji rolled his eyes. "Tell me how does it make any sense for Dachi to go kill Drak, the guy Dachi said was actually the werewolf? All that would do is make him look suspicious, which admittedly he does, but I don't think he would be that stupid. What does actually make sense is the werewolf to go attack Drak and attempt to frame Dachi." Kenji would explain, still mighty suspicious of Akane.
  12. Kenji had decided to wake up earlier than usual, yesterday might just be the beginning of this killing spree and to no ones surprise it was indeed the only beginning. Kenji found Akane knelt over a body and inspecting it before proclaiming it's Drak and was rather quick to point their finger at Daichi. "I find it odd that you happen to be here first and immediately accused Daichi... Sounds like a pretty good frame AKANE." Kenji pointed out.

  15. Kenji had been sleeping soundly when a scream awoken him from his slumber, he immediately rushed to the source of the scream and found a small group gathered around a mutilated corpse, the group seemed to be arguing who had killed whoever that was, Kenji however wasn't entirely too sure who could've done and it was perhaps in everyone's best interest to simply not randomly accuse everyone of killing the stranger just yet. "We shouldn't be accusing random people just yet guys, worst case scenario we kill an innocent person for no reason." Kenji said, attempting to prevent everyone from randomly accusing others,
  16. mission

    Kenji was surprised the teen appeared to take offense at Kenji's comment about the bandits only attacking the cart, the teen then reveled his true driving force to Kenji in a rather lengthy rant that raised in volume as the rant continued, only afterward did the teen realize he was ranting and apologized for doing so, seeming to notice he was shouting by the end of rant by speaking in a hushed town during his apology. "Hey man, it's fine, it's good to see you so passionate about dealing with criminals." Kenji assured the teen, despite having many problems with the teens way of thinking, he could use that to his advantage later on but for now it would do him no good to directly challenge him over his motive for being a shinobi and moral code, no point in destroying a partnership over a simple difference in opinion. Kenji let out a cough and looked forward, he was unsure how much further of a walk it would be back, "How much longer till we're back?" Kenji asked, he just wanted to go home, have some tea, then sleep in his warm bed once again. The mission was a success but he didn't know how much further he could go on, sure he gained valuable information on Kazuo and some idea of skill as a shinobi, but the trade off at this moment of time didn't seem worth it, the pain, sickness and cold was making his life hell and Kenji was unsure how much more he could take.

  17. mission

    Kenji walked in the front of the cart, the pain and cold he had basically forcing him to limp in the front, but it was his mission to secure the cart and he could rest when it was over, right now there could be some bandits still around and it was best to be prepared. The silver lining of the walk was the relative warmth on the tundra environment, still cold but compared to what Kenji went through yesterday it was practically the perfect weather, almost like he was on a paradise, well the warmth and the fact he was about to finish this mission and be back at his warm house with some tea and wrapped up in a blanket. By the time the cart had arrived, Kenji sighed in relief, nothing out of the ordinary happened during the trip and all the people were more than happy to see the arrival of it's supplies without any damage done to it unlike the previous deliveries. Kenji took quite a beating during this mission, but the bandits were dealt with and the supplies could be safety delivered on time from now on, he could sympathize with the people, bandits used to raid the supply carts during his early childhood and he spent quite a few nights with his parents in a cold dark room all covered with every blanket they owned to fight off the cold. With the mission completed, the pair begun to make their way back, it should only take a day at most, they might even make it back today, now that they didn't have to wait for the cart and the people on it, probably would've been faster if Kenji wasn't still recovering and dealing with a sickness. Suddenly, the young shinobi expressed his feelings and asked if Kenji felt the same, "Easy for you to say, you didn't get stabbed with three shurikens and froze nearly to death, seriously though, it's good we dealt with them before they moved onto more... extreme things." Kenji initially joked with the teen, a smile on his face as he did so, only for the smile to fade as he finished his sentence, he knew the teen was testing him, the reason was beyond him and only known to the teen but he knew the teen wanted to hear Kenji agreed with him, so Kenji told him what he wanted to hear. He didn't really care about justice and whatnot, the kid could be useful later on if Kenji played his cards right, it was part of the reason Kenji risked his life, that and his hatred of bandits, he couldn't kill them all and not fail the mission by himself, he gained a smirk as he thought of his plans.

    Kenji simply nodded as the teen told him they had stopped for the night in a town not too far off from the destination and that they'll leave early tomorrow since the family didn't enjoy their sudden company "Uh, sure, I could still use some sleep anyways... Have a good night Kazuo." Kenji told the teen as he laid back onto the floor, wrapping himself with the blanket and resting his head on the pillow the family must've provided him with while he was unconscious. This time as he slipped back into his dreams, they were rather peaceful, he didn't really have anything of note happen during his dream, just living his simple life in the tundra with his family, though even in his dreams he wished his family picked a warm place to live, like a nice forest near a lake, animals and fire fuel would be plentiful. By the time Kenji woke up, the sun had begun to rise and Kazuo appeared to be sleeping still, Kenji lightly shook him "Hey, come on, we should get a move on." Kenji told him in a whispered tone, trying not to wake up the family inside the house. Kenji yawned and stretched, but quickly recoiled and hunched over with a groan, stretching wasn't not the best idea since he still had the wounds from yesterday's battle, "Damn, forgot about that..." Kenji said, sneezing shortly afterwards, "Oh boy...." Kenji said with a smile, his nose a slight red and he had a slight stuffy feeling, he must've gotten sick from the cold yesterday, but at least he's alive. Word Count: 266

    Kenji looked over at Kazuo who had seemed to have just woke up from Kenji's scream, he seemed to think Kenji lost his eye, which he didn't blame him, if Kenji had to guess why someone wore an eye patch, he would guess lost of eye as well. He still looked tired and to be fair Kenji felt tried as well, nonetheless Kazuo asked if he was feeling any better. "Yeah, feeling much better, sorry for waking you man, just... A nightmare." Kenji told the sleepy teen, he briefly considered if he should reveal the cataract and scar the eye patch covered, but eventually deciding against it, he rather not put all cards on the table just yet. "So where exactly are we?" Kenji asked Kazuo, confused on how he was warm and bandaged him up when last time he was awake he was freezing and hurt out in the snow. He was confused where the cart went never mind, did they safety escort it? Was he asleep that long? No he couldn't have been sleeping that long, he would've froze or bleed out, it was at least an hour ride from the point the cart got attacked by Kenji's estimates "Where's the cart never mind?" Kenji asked the teen, deciding it was best to ask instead of wandering where it was. Word Count: 221

  21. mission

    As Kenji was unconscious, he had begun to dream, his dream placed Kenji back at home with his parents who were now old and needed Kenji to keep care of them, which he was happy to do and be back home living his peaceful life once more, but suddenly he remembered what had happened... Hours ago? Days ago? Wasn't he stuck by shurikens? When did he recover? More importantly, when did he return home? Wait who was keeping care of his parents? All these questions resurfaced his doubts regarding his choice on leaving home and becoming a shinobi, he missed the simple life he once had, nothing went wrong and it was peaceful. He remembered all his friends he had left when he moved to the village and wondered how they were doing, according to his parents most of them moved for various reasons, mostly lack of food or a reliable source of heat. Few of them unfortunately bit the dust by freezing to death, hunger or wild animals, he regretted not being able to attend the funerals due to being so far away and risking failure at the academy. He was constantly worried about his parents safety and health, all his old friends were probably keeping care of their family while he was out getting himself killed by nameless bandits for some teen he only knew for a day. His once cheery dream quickly became a nightmare as the doubts and regrets infected the dream, his worst fear becoming true as he watched his parents fade to dust and his old family home that was once lit by the flames of the fireplace faded into a dark and damp house, spider webs covering most of the corners of the abandoned home. He backed away in fear, confusion and shock on what had happened before his very eyes, his confusion about the injuries he sustained an unknown amount of time ago disappeared along the dream, he was too overwhelmed to handle it right now, in a futile effort, he ran back out to the outside, seeing nothing but a huge snowstorm. He can't be out here, it was too cold... He was so cold... He turned to his home, only to see an oddly familiar house, but not his own, he felt... Scared and had a urge to run from this house. With no other choice than freezing, Kenji entered the house, he knew he had seen this place before, but he couldn't quite put his finger on it... Until a familiar bandit appeared before him, "Hey kiddo, long time no seek, huh?" The bandit asked with a sadistic grin and Kenji finally realized where he was once again. Kenji was frozen in fear, how did he return? He got a kunai shot point blank into the face by his father's puppet! That was so long ago... When he was weak, he was far above him now, he was a shinobi for the water village! He'll take care of the bandit this time. He reached for a kunai, but found nothing, in fact not even his flak jacket was there anymore, it was replaced by his old clothing during his time here... He shouldn't even be able to fit them anymore... And did that guy get bigger? "Heh, don't be surprised kiddo, even if you were scared out of your mind... You can't defeat me." The bandit taunted the now young Kenji as he came closer to the kid. Scared Kenji turned to race out the door like before, only to find the door completely gone, almost as if it wasn't there in the first place, corned he turned back to face the bandit, who quickly slammed Kenji into the wall and pulled out a scalpel, raising it to Kenji's eye once more. Kenji attempted to fight back but suddenly the wall swallowed his arms and legs, seeming to secure Kenji tightly and preventing him from moving, the bandit with a quick movement jabbed the knife into his eye. Kenji woke up with a scream as he grabbed at his eye still covered by his eye patch, realizing it was just a nightmare he looked around, panting and out of breath from the whole experience, he noticed the shurikens were gone and he was in a home, Kazuo must've bought him here when he passed out. Kenji sighed as he rubbed his eyes, he was alive and well, that's all the mattered, it was only a nightmare and meant nothing, his parents were fine, his best friend assured him that they would be safe and there was no physical way for the bandit to return in nearly any shape or form, someone would need to know genjutsu to bring him back.

  22. mission

    To Kenji's surprise his partner appeared before him and quickly disarmed and incapacitated the bandit, he was relieved to see Kazuo fine and repaying the favor Kenji had done earlier, a mixture of relief, pride and the light headiness caused the weakened shinobi to smile despite the injuries and hypothermia he was suffering. The teen then threw his jacket back to Kenji, who caught it and put it on without a second thought about the oil, he was too cold and weak to complain about it or to question where the teen had gotten another jacket from. Kenji watched the teen finish off the final bandit as he attempted to crawl away from the pair, the teen's choice of killing him was simplistic and ended the bandit's life swiftly, he stabbed the katana into the bandit's back and managed to hit his heart, the only thing the bandit could do was whimper. He was relieved even more with the bandit dead, that should be the last of them, otherwise the rest surely would've at least backed up the leader as the teen fought her or even finish off Kenji quicker instead of watching their allies fall in battle. The teen seemed to be cautious and looked around anyways, ensuring there were no more bandits to be seen anywhere, once he finished looking, he turned to Kenji and thanked him, "No problem man, it's what partners do, right?" Kenji asked the teen with a smile, attempting his best to hide the pain the shurikens and cut were causing him as he took the katana back from the teenager. "Let's get back to the cart and finish the mission." Kenji told Kazuo as he attempted to get back up, but the pain and dizziness prevented him from getting back up, instead he only managed to pick himself up to the point of being capable of resting with a single knee on the ground and hunched over with his arms planted on the ground to give himself more support, he looked up at the blue eyed teen, "Heh, looks like I'm having trouble... Maybe we should rest... I'm... so... tir...ed.." Kenji attempted to say, passing out before he could hear the teen answer, his body fell down completely to the ground, his face meeting the cold snow covered ground, the cold, blood lost and exhaustion had taken it's toll and Kenji had pass out from the combined efforts.

  23. mission

    Kenji was exhausted and freezing at this point but his own target was a single bandit that appeared weaker than himself, at least if he was at his prime and not freezing with shurikens stuck onto him. The bandit seeing this weakness he laughed at the weakened man in front of him, "What are you going to do? Glare at me to death?" The last bandit asked Kenji, clearly seeing the advantage he held over the defeat shinobi. However Kenji had a plan, though if it didn't work properly, he was guaranteed to die, but if it did work, it would be over quite easily and Kenji could go check in on his partner, though he may not be much use in his current state, he needed to ensure the teen's safety and his own jackets safety, wouldn't want the jacket to be burned as well, Kenji probably wouldn't make it much longer if he went without one for any longer. The bandit not receiving an answer grew frustrated and begun to charge at the kneeling shinobi taking out a single dagger with his left arm and raised it high as he ran, intending to stab Kenji through the head, Kenji realized it was now or never, he quickly raise both his hands and almost instantly some condensed chakra strings shot out at the charging bandit, despite having the element of surprise the bandit managed to dodge most of the strings by jumping to the right quickly, however Kenji managed to only connect two, one on the left arm and the other on the left leg. The bandit realized what Kenji had done and looked at Kenji with fear in his eyes, only to see Kenji with a smirk "Looks like you're not lucky." Kenji taunted the bandit, ready to end this battle and go see his partner he made the bandit raise his left arm and begin to drive the dagger into the bandit's body, all the while the bandit fought Kenji's control and trying to prevent the dagger from stabbing himself. However, Kenji found himself getting light headed and dizzy, his focus becoming cloudy and unable to refocus causing his control on the bandit to fade slowly. The bandit seeing this laughed, "Not dressed for the weather huh?" The bandit asked with a sadistic grin on his face and the dagger that was once being used to stab himself slowly being pulled out and pointed back at Kenji. Kenji gritted his teeth, he was so close to killing him, but he was so tired and cold, but he felt himself becoming warm once again, though he couldn't tell how he was becoming warm, nothing in the environment changed. Too weakened to do anything about the bandit raise his dagger once more and now in front of Kenji, he could only watch the bandit prepare to kill him, Kenji himself had no qualms about this, he would die on the field saving his partner, a warrior's death that even his father would be proud to hear of, though it was sad to be struck down by a mere nameless bandit instead of an rival shinobi, crime lord or anything but a simple bandit.

  24. As Kenji waited for the man who was going to address the group, Oshiro walked beside Kenji and told him that she'll go for "it" and to signal her if something goes wrong, Kenji simply nodded in reply and kept waiting for the leader to reveal themselves, he wondered who was going to be the one to talk to the group, probably wouldn't be Taro himself, if Kenji had to guess it was going to be someone in a relatively high position within the gang, a lieutenant or something. A man stepped into the front of the group and faced them all, clearly being the recruiter, though Kenji couldn't determine if he was a lieutenant or any ranking, which wasn't really surprising since they were just a gang of criminals and didn't really have a dress code, at least from what Kenji could see. The man then proceeded to talk of the civilians not being cared for by the village, clearly taking advantaged of the unrest created by the posters that were seen hanging around the village lately, frankly that was expected, but what wasn't expected was the recruiter demanding to get information on everyone, such an odd requirement. He let everyone answer the two lower ranked thugs while he thought of a believable cover, he knew he couldn't reveal his actual name, but couldn't be quiet or refuse to answer, that would make him suspicious. By the time one of the teenage thugs asked for Kenji's information, he simply claimed he was Hiroshi Ame, he was homeless and had no family that he knew of, the teens seemed to buy it and moved on to the other teenagers within the group. Kenji kept waiting for the teens to finish gathering information on the rest of the teens, relieved that the ones gathering the information bought his story, though he was tempted to take that info, it would be interesting to see what type of environment causes the teens to seek a gang as well known as the Onyx Shoal, but he refused to compromise the mission for the sake of some information that he would probably never use. Once the teens finally finished gathering the information on everyone, they returned to the recruiter, "Good, now that we got that out of the way, we're going to comb through the information and confirm you're telling the truth, in the meanwhile..." The recruiter said, stepping forward and pulling out a single baggy of an unknown substance. "This is a new drug we managed to get our hands on, your job is simple, deliver it to some customers, we'll give you the list of clients you'll be delivering these to. If even a single client doesn't get what they paid for, we'll hunt you down like the dog you are." He said, two other men stepped forward, looking to be in their twenties as well. They were clearly attempting to intimidate the group, some of them were buying into it and appeared slightly panicked, Kenji however was still smoking and observing what was going on, considering if he should signal Oshiro or wait and see if they have anything other than a new drug to showcase.

  25. mission

    The bandits turned to face the man who had just struck down their ally and upon hearing him ask who was next, the pair looked at each other then back at Kenji, one jumped to Kenji's left and threw 3 shurikens at Kenji while the other charged at Kenji with his sword raised high and letting out a battle cry. Thinking quickly, Kenji knew what he was going to do, he performed yet another set of hand signs and then with a single swipe of his kunai a strong gust of wind sent the shurikens flying back at the one who threw them, he then turned his attention to the one charging and about to take a swing at Kenji, but the cold appeared to be affecting him more than he expected as his joints refused to move quickly, instead he was forced to attempt to deflect the sword with his kunai. Kenji's attempt at a deflect partially failed, the bandit's sword managed to slice open Kenji's fingers and they were bleeding pretty badly, but he couldn't tell how much the blade had cut, the adrenaline keeping him distracted from the pain for now. Kenji returned the favor and slashed at the bandit, the bandit must've not expected Kenji to return the blow as he barely tried to dodge, instead receiving a big gash diagonally across his chest. Satisfied with that wound he inflicted, Kenji turned his attention back to the one who threw the shurikens, only to be greeted with more flying at him, a mixture of delayed reflex and slower movements prevented him from dodging all. He took 3 total, one on his left shoulder, one on the left side of his abdomen and the last one managed to hit his left forearm, the pain of the 3 shurikens were enough to stun Kenji as the sword wielding bandit saw his chance and attempted to swing at Kenji yet again. Freezing, weakened and stunned, Kenji managed to barely dodged, if you can call it a dodge, the bandit was swinging his blade horizontally so he just fell to the ground on to a single knee and impaled the bandit's foot into the ground with his kunai. He pulled out another kunai and turned toward the one who struck him with the shurikens, but was greeted with another set of shurikens flying at him, however this time he managed to properly dodge, he rolled out of the way and the other bandit was unable to move out of the way, instead being killed by his own ally. With the shuriken throwing bandit being the last one standing, Kenji looked at him with a smile "Still feeling lucky?" He asked the final bandit, out of breath and freezing, but still refusing to back down and maintaining his calm behavior. Word Count: 467 Chakra Left: 75/100
