|“Mokuzai, why are we back here?” The Childs voice came from behind the male nukenin, resting his head against his left shoulder. “The last place that I would want to come back to would be this place. You do have a reason for this, correct?” The child did have a point; he didn’t want to come back to this forsaken country. He spent many years here, fighting poverty and the individuals that made it hard for him growing up. Yoi didn’t care that Mokuzai was making the choice to come back to Hi No Kuni after being absent for a few months. He might have some sort of unfinished business here that he missed from escaping. “I’m just..checking up on a few things here, man. Nothing to be too concerned about, alright?” He sent a soft smile to the child on his back. If he was going to lie, he might as well do it in a believable manner, even though Yoi was getting quite the eye for spotting when Mokuzai would let a lie slip from his throat. Placing the child on the ground, the male nukenin stretched up his arms slowly, allowing his back to readjust to having the weight off his body. |
“You’re gaining some weight, Yoi. The hell have you been eating? Have you been stealing food in the towns that we enter?” He laughed while continuing to walk forward on the dirt road underneath his feet. He didn’t want to reveal his real reasoning for coming back to this country. If he was to tell Yoi straight up and bluntly while they were back here, he would probably run away or be hard to convinced other wise to stay with him. He needed to find some trace of the old man, some sort of information on this being that caused him and Yoi so many disturbances in their lives.
“Psht, I haven’t been eating more than you, you pig!” Yoi folded his arms across his chest, jutting his lip out in a pouting gesture. Secretly, he has been stealing food for the both of them when Mokuzai would finally rest his eyes. He didn’t want both of them to be starving, and Yoi can deal with some of the tiredness that came with living like a nomad. The male nukenin’s dark orbs peered forward towards the entrance of the forest, letting yet another sigh come from his lips. “You stick near me when we enter here, alright? You remember what we went through, correct? Here, we say we are Senju, we don’t go by our real last names.” Mokuzai’s hand went towards Yoi’s left shoulder, placing his digits lightly on the cloth, brushing off some dirt that remained there. “Just don’t act stupid like we did in the lightening country, we almost got caught there. Just keep your cool and follow my lead, it’ll be easy.”
It made it a whole lot easier that Yoi didn’t really have a forehead protector; he technically should have been in an academy by now, but with him traveling around the country, Mokuzai can’t find a place where the child won’t be viewed as a monster. The thought to end his life by his own hands has honestly crossed the nukenin’s mind a few times. It would be a simple route to go through, but he wouldn’t know if he could go through with it. It was one thing to kill, it wasn’t that much of a deal. But to kill someone you have bonded with, someone who you thought would change your life; that was the bigger situation going on with Mokuzai. How would he even do it? While he was sleeping? That seemed uncalled for, and seeing Yoi asleep would make the nukenin freeze in his place. There was no need for him to be thinking such thoughts like this just yet. Not while they were here on business.
Placing his fingertips on the bandages that graced his lower features, Mokuzai let out a slow sigh and hunched over while walking. “You know. My face is going to be completely rotted out by the time I find someone to heal this. I might as well invest into a mask or something. This is getting a bit too much.” He laughed whole-heartedly, holding his stomach with his right hand while cutting through the forest. Upon touching the tree to cut by, his thoughts went back to the younger nukenin that he met here months ago.
Some ice user, a Yuki if he could remember her name. It was just a brief conversation that was held between the two, but a lot of things could have happened between the months that he was away. “Ah, Yoi.” Mokuzai’s tone suddenly changed to more of a serious manner, allowing his head to turn to look down at the child. “Avoid from using your mokuton unless we are threatened. I don’t want you exposing yourself to potential shinobi here. They will track you down if they see it.” He wish he was joking when he spoke to the younger male. The shinobi here in this country were usually top notch. Becoming vicious tracking ninja that were at the top of their game and were good at what they do. The last thing they needed once again was to be chased out of a country that they just arrived in. It wasn’t the best situations to come into after traveling for long periods of times.
Entering the forest line, Mokuzai and Yoi started their trek through the dense lining of vegetation. He knew where they were once he placed his hand against the trees. “We’re near Konoha, but we don’t need to head in that direction. Never go there. At least without me.” His arms and chest started to burn from the thought of his time in there. The explosive fight he had with Satsune, the meeting with Mr.Salt and the senju from an actual branch of the clan. The information he gained there was priceless, practically useless to him. But the Satsune girl, she was different. She showed promise to him.
“How about you stay in the trees and allow me to walk in case we run into trouble? You’ll be able to run and get away with a lead.” Mokuzai grabbed the back collar of the child, tossing him upwards to grab a branch, watching him get situated in the spot that he chose. “Keep quiet until we get out of the forest.” There was no reason that both of them should get caught for letting some words or noises pierce through the forest. The great thing about being in this area? The Takigakure protector around Mokuzai’s neck was dimmed from the lack of light. As long as he remained in distance, individuals shouldn’t be able to tell the symbol with much ease.

|Yuurei never really left the village before unless he was with his father, or his mother. He figured it was unnecessary to be out here if he didn't know how to survive. This was when he was still in the academy, and was learning the basics of things. Still things were different now, and he felt more comfortable with himself than before. The things he could do in the village were endless, but he wanted to get out for once, and train without any restrictions. The ninja slowly walked towards the village gate right now. He had his kit with him as he looked around his body to see if he missed anything.|
He didn't want to be unprepared for anything that could happen to him outside the village wall. He slowly approached the gate in front of him as he smiled happily. The Senju looked up to the sky as he stretched his arms out as he was walking. He took a deep breath as he closed his eyes at the same. It was good outside, and the air was fresh that he actually enjoyed it. The day was bright, and he figured nothing could go wrong today. He allowed the air to escape his lungs, and from his body as he motioned his head to look straight ahead. His eyes opened up as he could only notice how close he was to the gates now.
Yuurei looked at the guards that were at the front, and nodded at them. They only waved at him, and he figured they wouldn't bother asking why he was leaving the village. ”I'm going out on a little errand. I was given approval to do so,” he let it out anyway, so that they knew that he wasn't trying to run away. ”The name is Senju Yuurei,” he let it out as they nodded, and already knew this. He just shook his head as he was never going to figure out what these two were thinking about.
He made his way outside the village as he started to sprint away from the village, and into the forest. Yuurei decided to take a look around the area before he decided to go get what his father wanted him to get. The young boy had kept his speed at half of what he was capable of running. He was moving around the forest for about twenty minutes before he soon came to a complete stop. He looked around as he was eying the area. There were no trees at this part of the forest, and it just looked like someone cleared it out a while ago. After the moment of tension, the young Genin stood straight up and smiled.
”This is a good place,” he performed a few hand seals before he pressed his hands together. ”Mokuton: Shichūrō no Jutsu,” he said as a cherry blossom had come out from the ground. It was then that it started to grow, and changing into a wooden prison on the ground. He looked at what he had done, and smiled because he was able to do this technique without much of a problem. The red structure was a sight to see, and he just wiped his forehead as he wondered if he should do more exploring around the forest.

- Name: Mokuton: Shichūrō no Jutsu | Wood Release: Four Pillars Prison Technique
Range: Close (0m ~ 5m)
Element: Mokuton (Wood Release)
Description: Mokuton: Shichūrō no Jutsu is a ninjutsu technique used by the members of the Senju clan. This technique lets the user summon a tree around their opponent to bind them. The user changes chakra into timber under the ground and makes it grow rapidly, while forming it into a wooden prison. The size of the prison is five meters in each side, making it capable of containing multiple individuals if used in one spot. The timber itself is treated with a chakra coating, making its destruction extremely difficult. During war, it has the great ability to detain prisoners, but it can also be used as a disciplinary measure for quarreling subordinates.

The morning breeze was already cooling the landscape of the previous night. Kazuo barely managed to sleep in his tent, due to the heat in the middle of that dry summer night. Somewhere around the woods outside Konoha one could easily detect a small but sufficient tent, which was practically Kazuo's coat, a really useful gadget his father had given him as a gift for his fourteenth birthday. A number of canvases were piled up right outside the tent and the sun had just begun to send its rays on them. A couple of eyelids opened wide and revealed Kazuo’s dark green eyes as he woke up from his short sleep. "The sun isn't even up yet." His mouth whispered and before he would lie back in his tent, he heard a strange sound. Patting on the forest ground, several steps were echoing between the dense trees. He swiftly stood up, combed his messy coral hair using his fingers, fixed his dark blue jacket on his shoulders and then adjusted his grey trousers. The sound of the unidentified steps started turning distant and distorted. Well, whoever it was, I guess they probably left.
His eyes wandered around his tent and his paintings, or rather the couple of paintings that he left resting on the pile of blank canvases. A beautiful landscape full of trees and rocks was the first one he made, but he didn't particularly like how it eventually looked so he just left to the side and started drawing another one. It was one more painting of his deceased friends. His crush, Shima, and his girlfriend Haru. They were his only true friends. They were the only people that ever came close to him and also devastated his world with their unfair deaths. He painted their faces serious and blank of emotions. The young man never stopped drawing his memories with them and he chose a memory to paint depending on his mood. That night he was feeling emptiness. Kazuo shook his head and blinked twice. His hands immediately started tidying up the mess he left last night. He packed the tent’s ropes and every other tool he used to keep it on the ground, and somehow managed to fit his canvases in there as well. He put on the hooded black coat and made sure his ninja tools were all still on him before heading off towards Konoha's gates.
"It was nice spending the night here. I didn't have to hear them fight once again. I guess I’m way more welcome in the forest than in my own house… I swear I’ll move in my own apartment with the first chance I get…" The genin's words were suddenly interrupted by some sort of loud noise coming from the direction where he camped last night. He was too curious to let it go. So he turned around and started running back. He passed his camping spot and turned left, only to find the traces of the person that walked by earlier. Step to step, he kept running and as his feet met the late footsteps, he felt a breeze on his face. The light that was coming from that point was much more. He stopped moving behind a final line of trees, which was what stood between the young man and an open area.
Kazuo noticed a figure standing in the distance, and that was when Kazuo witnessed something extraordinary. The roots and base of a large tree had already emerged from the ground and the branches were now forming into elegant wings of a somehow red shade. Is that a cherry tree? How did he… Could he be one of Konoha's Senju? Kazuo held his elbow against the tree right next to him, applying pressure and allowing his under jaw to rest on his fist. What came next was the reformation of that mass of wood into a prison that emerged from the ground and covered a quite large surface. What the hell is he planning to do with that massive cage of wood? Kazuo tilted his head and indulged in his curiosity by making a step forward. From the genin's point of view he seemed like a younger male. His clothes certainly didn't look like any of Konoha's flak jackets, but he didn't seem like a threat.
Kazuo then took another step forward and emerged between two trees. He then started walking sideways, trying not to make any sound. He probably looked like a silly praying mantis moving around, tilting its head right and left to examine its prey. The rising sun rays were directed on that mysterious figure from the eastern side of the field, making it hard to see that person’s face. But there it was, a forehead protector with a leaf carved on the metal surface. Interesting. It was time to reveal himself, even though his presence should have already been detected by that person, given the fact he was a ninja. He breathed in to prepare a way of speaking and he started walking towards his fellow shinobi. "Good morning." He exclaimed and cleared his throat. "Why are you out here this early, if you don’t mind? I’m from Konoha as well, and I happened to witness your... prison technique... Sorry if I sound intrusive." He felt how awkward his introduction was and hoped that guy wouldn't mind answering his question. I seemed rather suspicious, but it could be just a training day for him.
Meanwhile, several meters behind the shinobi Kazuo had just encountered, he could barely see a couple of shadows waltzing behind the trees. But those shadows were too distorted to be identified human. "Huh? What's that now?" Kazuo's lips let out the few quiet words as he now bent his upper body and head to his right side in order to get a better view behind that large wooden cage that guy had created. "Uhm, hello there!" He shouted, curious about the origins of those shadows. Could it be even more people? What an incredible coincidence would that be?

|With Yoi now in the tree, Mokuzai was able to keep calm in case they were able to run into some ninja from before. After leaving Konoha, the male nukenin was positive that he was in their bingo book by now; especially after the damage he left in the main market. Making it literally rain fire wasn’t how he planned to spend his time in the leaf, but things change, and he had to adjust his agenda accordingly. “If you get into some trouble, I’ll crack some skulls for ya, ok?” The child whispered loudly enough for Mokuzai to hear. If this was an earlier scenario, he would dismiss that thought instantly; since the scandal near Kumogakure, Mokuzai’s thinking of the child has changed. The older male was his role model with the child copying each and every movement that he was able to see. Is this how he wanted Yoi to live his life? Be on the run constantly and not give any one a chance, or trust easily? A child should be in a village with a group of friends and get picked on; not run around with some criminal.|
Mokuzai raised his arm up with his thumb extended; a simple gesture that made Yoi realize he had to be quiet from now on. Before coming into this country, the duo went over various hand gestures, from run, to fight, to stay. It was a basic tactic that most ninja of higher rank used constantly. The child kneeled down so he could get better leverage on the tree just in-case he had to move swiftly throughout the forest.
Mokuzai, on the other hand, narrowed his brown orb, keeping his white hued left vision straight. The poison from the scar underneath his bandages was starting to affect his left eye sight; causing him to gain a new blind spot. “Someone’s out here?” He kept his jaw clenched while looking in the direction that he sensed chakra from. Pinpointing their position with his sensing abilities; that was both a blessing and a curse. The nukenin could easily figure out if some shinobi were coming near him, but he could only recognize the size of their chakra, and not when they are preparing to use a jutsu. Which could be annoying if he was on alert the whole time in a country; imagine going into a field where you know there are snipers, but you can’t pinpoint the caliber of the rifle they are using. It’s exactly like that.
Quickly changing his thumb to a fist, Mokuzai cleared his throat once he felt a familiar signature come just yards away. “Senju.” He muttered underneath his breath. There was no reason for him to put on an act now. If they are about to meet ninja from Konoha, they would know what he looks like, what his real name is, and will definitely know the moment he would use his Mokuton. The signal that he gave Yoi was to keep quiet and down; just to make sure that he was keeping everything smooth and hidden. Lifting up his legs to start his trek, he made sure to watch the placement of his boots. A simple snapped twig could alert even more ninja than the two that he sensed.
"Uhm, hello there!"
“Shit. This can’t be happening right now.” The annoyance in his voice was more than apparent. It was more of a scoff once he was found from the voice that echoed towards him. He knew there was no one behind him, and Yoi was plan out of sight from being in the tree; so was Mokuzai that easy to spot? Even when the shade of the tree was covering his figure? There was no point in hiding anymore. Once you have been found, there was no way you could hide as long as someone as their eyes on you. He clenched his jaw while walking forward slowly towards the two figures. Before he could get a decent glare to the ninja in front of him five yards away, the red cherry cage looked all too familiar to him. He used the exact same jutsu to trap people in when Tenshi wiped out a village.
The memories started to come back while the old Mokuzai started to resurface. Since meeting Yoi, Mokuzai has started to become softer, worrying more about the childs protection rather than his own self. It was the first time he had a relationship with someone that was near family. Even though Yoi was technically a clone of Mokuzai, he couldn’t help but to view him as a little brother. Nearing the two males that were finally coming into view, the headband around Mokuzai’s neck gleamed in the sunlight cutting through the branches and leaves. The Takigakure symbol with the ‘X’ marked through the arrow was showing proud and confidently from the nukenin.
“Well fuck me sideways and call me sally.” He started to clap while placing his hand on the cage in front of him. “So you’re Senju as well, huh? Nice, nice. I saw this cage myself once, except it was black and the people inside of it went ‘boom’ eventually.” When talking about the explosion, he paused at the word ‘boom’ to make a scattering expression with his hands, bringing them apart pretty rapidly. “It’s a shame that those people didn’t listen to me when I told them to not touch the bars. If they did, I’m pretty sure that they would be alive right about now; still continuing to live their lives in that forsaken small village.” A brisk sigh came from his covered mouth, stretching up his arms while he moved closer to the younger ninja. “So which one of you is Senju? I don’t want to take a guess and then insult someone for bein’ wrong!”

|Yuurei just expelled chakra for the reason to see if he could do this technique without a problem. It worked, but something had happened. He wasn't able to pinpoint it, but there were people here who he knew he didn't invite. He shook his head because he had already used some of his chakra for something so useless. He slowly turned in the direction where he soon heard a good morning from. He noticed that this person was much older him, and he was carrying some personal stuff with him. ”This guy was camping out here?” he thought to himself as he eyed him up and down to see if he was an enemy, or a friend.|
He noticed the aura that surrounded the stranger; it was an aura similar to his own. It was not purple exactly, but it was close. It showed that he wasn't hostile, which was okay with him. It showed that he was similar to him, and that was made the tension drop. Still it wasn't the only reason as he noticed the man having a Konoha headband with him. ”Now I don't have to try to find a way to run away,” he waved at him. He heard what the man told him, and he just moved his right arm to the back of his head as he scratched it for a quick second.
”Good morning,” he paused. Well I’m running an errand for my father. But I took a detour, and decided to see if I was able to use a technique I never really used after trying to perfect it a while ago,” he explained himself as he looked at the stuff he had with him again. ”What about you? You seem to be out here pretty early as well,” he returned the question back to him. His question had not been answer though, but instead it seemed like they were not alone. He turned again as he was looking at the direction where the other Konoha ninja was looking in, and shouted in.
He figured something bad was going to happen, and it made him a bit nervous. ”I get out of the village, and I get swarm with a bunch of people. I just hope this person isn’t trouble,” he noticed someone coming out from the shadow of the trees. Yuurei couldn’t help but look at him, and to see if there was any sign of an attack coming to his direction. He did notice something besides his aura; there was the headband from another village, but there was something wrong with it. There was an X mark over the symbol of the village. He shook his head, but barely, so nobody could see it as he knew what it meant.
Then there was the dark aura around him; that just gave him an idea on what type of guy he was. It wasn’t a complete black, so it meant he wasn’t all about fighting, and killing things. That was good, but it was still minuscule since the aura gave off a bad sign. The man spoke up to the two, but his introduction was inappropriate, and not a way he figured anybody would say. He heard his words and he flinched, but not to the fact he knew he was a Senju, it was more about what he said about a time this technique was used to kill others. ”I am the Senju that made this technique. Who are you?” he spoke to him, yet kept his question simple, and at a normal tone. He didn’t want the man to get the wrong idea.

As Kazuo took a final step closer to the boy he had just met in the clearing, the fellow ninja from Konoha turned to get a look at the genin and returned the greeting. “Good morning.” The youth’s face seemed slightly confused after seeing him, but Kazuo figured out he was just curious, just like he felt when he reached the clearing. The corners of his lips began forming a soft smile as the young genin in front of him started explaining the reason he used that kind of technique in the middle of nowhere. So it was actually training time for him. Just as I thought. He thought and his eyes examined the wooden cage, which had been given a delightful tint of a red shade. “What about you? You seem to be out here pretty early as well.” The young boy asked him, but Kazuo was already wondering what those shadows actually were. Before the young man managed to even answer the question, there was the shadow. A figure entered the clearing area, walking towards the center and near the wooden cage. So who was that?
“So who’s this now?” The mysterious figure was probably a male, by the looks of whom Kazuo could only figure out that he wasn’t open, at least for the time being. As the distance between the two Konoha ninja and the man that had just arrived became shorter, Kazuo managed to notice a headband around that man’s mouth. His face was covered by a bandana, as well as his head. The man was covered in different fabrics from head to toes, with the only thing exposed being his eyes. The whole picture gave Kazuo a bad feeling about the unidentified person’s intentions. Could he be a traveler, a merchant, or maybe a refugee? No, he looks strong; he’s probably from another ninja village, but… So there it was, a piece of metal solved the mystery behind his identity. An X marked village symbol depicted that this guy was a missing ninja that had abandoned his village.
Kazuo’s teeth pressed on his under lip and his eyes narrowed, taking away the light from the green reflections. What if he’s a criminal… The man was now close enough to possibly act offensively, but in the ninja world range never mattered. At least not to those that wanted somebody dead. The man interrupted the youth’s train of thought with a set of short claps and placed his hand on the freshly made cage. He looked excited, something strange and difficult for Kazuo to understand. “Well fuck me sideways and call me sally.” What the hell does that mean? “So you’re Senju as well, huh? Nice, nice. I saw this cage myself once, except it was black and the people inside of it went ‘boom’ eventually.” The male kept talking to them, his words unraveling the mystery behind his origin. But that word that described the sound of an explosion hooked Kazuo’s breath as if he got shot in the chest. His eyes started moving hysterically up and down, trying to make sure he wasn’t preparing an attack of any sort. He kept talking, however, and it was about the same subject. His next sentence proved that he was clearly somebody that had killed a number of people in the past, after using that same wooden cage technique.
Wooden cage, a Senju that killed people just because they touched the cage… What’s going on here… Why’s he here… He started moving towards them, each step frightening Kazuo. He felt his heart’s pulse, as the blood was streaming though his neck’s vains. Then the man stretched his arms up, forcing Kazuo to keep his guard up. He was ready to use hand seals. He wouldn’t have time to salute his opponent in case he randomly attacked them. “So which one of you is Senju? I don’t want to take a guess and then insult someone for bein’ wrong!” He instead asked them which one was the creator of the cage. But why? “Could this be a conversation starter, or do you hold a grudge against the Senju Clan?” Kazuo’s breath let out several words in a serious tone of his voice. His posture didn’t reveal his fear, but his arms were already slightly bent over his lower body, ready to fire, or in that case form seals. Don’t pull the trigger Kazuo. Maybe he doesn’t want to fight you. The whole situation was increasingly making him nervous and the unknown identity of that man was such a puzzle for Kazuo that his mind kept making up scenarios about him dying in a horrible way, in the hands of a criminal. What a disgrace would that be?
Weighing the possible outcomes and considering his options, Kazuo was about to use a defensive technique, just in case. He had no idea how strong that man was. He didn’t have any information at all. His rank, his abilities, his fighting style, they were all blank sections in his notes. The only thing he knew was that his arsenal included explosions and wood. As weird as it sounded, Kazuo kept thinking about… wood. Mokuton, was it? The Ninjutsu of the Senju clan was well known among the Konoha ninja. Kazuo had heard rumors about them, masters of shape transformation, able to create wooden surfaces and grow trees in an instant. But this man could be really strong considering the fact that he was so confident. He approached them without hesitation and instantly asked them who the Senju was. He rushed things. And the friendly way would be an introduction, or at least asking why they were there. His thoughts entwined around scenarios and possibilities, when the young boy who was standing right next to him finally answered the question. “I am the Senju that made this technique. Who are you?”
Kazuo muttered something even he didn’t understand in his confusion. He briefly gave the boy a glance and then stared back at whom would potentially be their enemy. What is he thinking, giving out information that quickly? I guess I can't help it now. His ankle forced his left leg to move and take half a step back, focusing the weight of his body on his left side. Yeah, who are you? Kazuo couldn’t just leave his mind rest and his fear of dying to a complete stranger, possibly a latent criminal, eventually took over him. His hands came together to form three consecutive hand seals, the final one being the snake sign. He didn’t care if that guy was planning to make a counter-move. He had to defend himself. “Gaton; Garasu Yoroi.” His mouth barely opened, whispering the name of his armor technique. Particles of glass started shimmering around his body, swiftly covering his skin with a few layers of a transparent blue glass. This will do for sudden attacks for now. He spoke internally and slowly exhaled the heavy air that he kept in his lungs for a while. I even forgot to breathe properly. Snap out of it, baka.

• Yuurei, the fact that your character’s chakra is purple, does in no way mean that he can see the chakra auras of other people. The Chakra Aura SC merely colors your chakra, it doesn’t offer you an aura or any ability to determine how other people’s chakra looks like. Yet you mentioned that my character’s aura was similar to yours, having a purple tint, and that Mokuzai’s chakra was dark. Please refrain from doing that again in the future, considering you need to use chakra for it to be seen, and you have to own the SC for it to have a different color.

|Mokuzai wasn’t one to judge based on looks; he knew that people could be a bit different from how they carried themselves. the Konoha genin in front of him sent some sort of flame throughout his body. He had no grudge against the actual children himself, it was the symbol on their bodies. Pulling the bandana from his head, Mokuzai placed it in his right pocket of his coat, allowing his ebony hair to ruffle in the wind when small gusts came into the area. The bandages covering his lower features had a yellow hue from the medicine underneath the fabric. Turning his eyes to the younger child that said he created the wood, Mokuzai nodded for a few moments while placing his hand on the structure to his left. |
“Ah, so you’re Senju. I see, I see.” He continued to look over the cage, turning his attention back to their questions. “Mokuzai Kyuusaisha. Moku for short since it’s a handful to say.” Their facial expressions weren’t really how Mokuzai pictured them to turn out. He knew he was coming off a bit strong with his conversation starter, but how else was he going to make a point and a decent first impression to the lot of Konoha ninja. “A grudge against a clan that I’m not even technically apart of? I don’t even see how that is remotely possible. I’ve only met with one other Senju member here in Konoha. Poor me..” He rubbed the back of his neck while trying to think of the name of the child. “I seem to have forgotten his name. All I did was prove that I was Senju, and he gave me the information I needed. It’s an easy job when I can put on an act, ya know?” Mokuzai loved conversation, even if it meant staying around Konoha for a bit longer. Letting a soft breath come from his lips underneath the bandages, he started to take in the information about their physical forms.
The Senju was much younger than the male nukenin; even near Yoi’s age. The other being, looked closer to the rogues age. “As you can tell.” He coughed slightly into his hand, lifting up his headband from his neck to show the small arrow pointing down in the middle. “I’m from Takigakure. Well, not anymore, but you get the point, hm?” He stretched his arms upwards and crossed them behind his head to relax a bit more. There was no point in him trying to be stressful when the individuals in front of him were already wary. Mokuzai’s right dark orb went over to the oldest of the trio, watching his skin shine a transparent blue. “You actually think I’m goin’ to attack you guys, hm? If I wanted to, we wouldn’t be conversin’ right now, nor would I would come from the front. I could have just sent a clone to explode if I wanted to. Calm the fuck down, or you’ll piss me off.” The anger issues this teen dealt with were finally showing themselves once again after being dormant for a few months. The build-up of emotion could only be done for so long, and so much before he lost his temper. Usually causing him to explode and go on a full-scale assault.
Mokuzai clenched his jaw while looking over the two lower ranked ninja. “I wasn’t honestly expectin’ any one out this far from the village; let alone two genin. Your chakra signature, and the amount you have, gave it off the instant I sensed you.” His voice stayed monotone, keeping his emotion suppressed for the time being. Fixing the white coat on his body, the fur on the brim of the hood danced around from yet another gust from the area that formed. “You have red wood with cherry blossoms? So are you a flower boy or somethin’? It’s a little too girly for my tastes, would you like to see mine?” Mokuzai cracked his knuckles in front of his chest, taking in a deep breath while looking over the two genin with a slight smirk underneath his bandages. “Actually.” He paused, dropping the form and letting his hands come down to his hips. “If I use it, the guards will be able to tell who has been here just from the color of my Mokuton.” The thought almost never crossed his mind. He didn’t need to leave small marks of him being there. He liked not having to run around constantly for his life; not having to worry about a place where they would sleep or if they would have to stay up all night running. Yoi didn’t deserve that life, Mokuzai did.
“Before I get bored with this conversation, just let me know some information about you guys. Names, and all that. I’m not in the mood to beat it out of you, but if you truly want to push my buttons, then go right ahead.”

|Yuurei just watched the man as he wasn’t sure what was going to happen right now. The way he was moving things, made it look like something was going to happen. That didn’t put him at ease, but made sure he was on the defense, if something were to happen. He noticed the man was looking straight at him and he just couldn’t help, but feel great tension coming from everybody that was here. The man had given his name to the two, but it didn’t ring a bell. The Senju swiftly moved his eyes around Mokuzai, wondering what the man was going to do. |
He listened to the man’s words about what he said about the Senju; he could only wonder about the person he met. ”Was it somebody I knew?” he thought to himself as the man spoke about proving himself as a Senju to the other Senju before him. He had moved back very slowly as the man had continued to speak. The slash on the village’s symbol meant he was a criminal, which meant they would have to fight him, if things turned out for the worst. He didn’t want any of that to happen, so he made sure he didn’t do anything to get the man on the offense.
Yuurei heard him speak to the ninja behind him, and he quickly looked back to see that the guy had a shade of blue going around his skin. He was actually surprised, as his blinked a few times to grasp the situation. He wasn’t sure what he had done, but it looked like he had gotten on the defense already. He looked back at Mokuzai as the man was being irrational again. This guy really was going to lose it without them even doing much to him.
”So this guy is a bit off. He seems to get mad for the littlest of stuff,” he thought to himself. He was trying to get information from analyzing him. He didn’t want to fight, but of course if he had to, then he wanted to know as much as he could about his opponent. He stepped a back for a bit as the man had let them know that he knew they were Genins, and even how he knew they were. The way he walked out of hiding just meant he was not in their league. Still he was brought back to how he proved he was a Senju.
It made him nervous, for he thought this man could truly be a real Senju. He stopped thinking about that as soon as the man taunted him on what kind of trees he made. ”So, he is a Senju,” he thought to himself as he prepared himself for the worst. Yuurei was getting ready, but the man had stopped. ”So yours is different as well,” he let it out softly. The genin wonderws what the other guy was planning on doing right now. It didn’t seem like they were going to fight unless he provoked it.
”The name is Yuurei and you already know what you really need to know about me,” he said as his hands were close to each other. He didn’t do anything, but he wondered what was going to happen with the other genin. ”What color is your Mokuton?” he asked curious what he would say. ”What is your plan?” he thought to himself.

|Mokuzai started to get a little anxious while standing there with the genin. It’s been a decent amount of time since he has been out in the open like this. Even though Yoi was near him, Mokuzai could feel himself start to slip back to his old ways of being a brute with no care. So what if one of the faces in front of him was nothing but a mere child. It didn’t stop him before he met Yoi, so why should it stop him now? With a brief sigh, Mokuzai moved back towards the cage, allowing his front side to face the large wooden cage. “You guys really are testin’ my patience, honestly. I didn’t think you two could be so vague at answerin’ some simple questions. Didn’t your parents ever teach you about makin’ some sort of friendship with people? Your friends start as strangers, yet that didn’t stop you from talkin’ to ‘em.” He did have a point, at least from where he was coming from. Mokuzai thought the parents of villages were a bunch of hypocrites. Teaching their young ones to not talk to people they don’t know but, how would they make some sort of relationship happen?|
“I felt talkative unlike my usual self, and you guys think I’m over here to kill you? Should I be insulted or should that be took in like a compliment?” He let his head fall backwards and stare towards the Senju member. He didn’t care about the other male that emitted off a blue light from his body. His quarrel was not with that clan. Slowly but surely, a laugh started to build up from the lips of Mokuzai, causing his shoulders to start to bounce from how hard he started to laugh. “You seem quiet for bein’ apart of the great leaf. Actually the both of you are bein’ way too quiet. You were conversin’ just fine before I showed up, weren’t you?” He was trying to show them both points that he was proving right. Before he even showed up, it seemed like from a distance that the two of them were holding some sort of conversation between the both of them. Mokuzai started to get a little curious from how everything was about to turn out. Would they run back to their village and start getting guards to bring back with them, or would they stand their ground as shinobi and try to see what the real world was like?
“Now for what mine looks like, do you want me to do that formally, or just go on how I was before?” He tilted his head back to look over the cage in front of him. He was trying to seem a bit more sane than usual, and he could feel himself slipping every once and while. He thought he had his temper controlled and not using it as a crutch to do something a bit drastic between the trios. He knew Yoi was watching, and even that couldn’t help him keep calm and watch his movements. Letting out a slow drawn breath from his lips, Mokuzai once again started to start his hand signs in front of his stomach, placing his left arm on the cage while turning his head back towards the Senju.
“Make sure you watch closely, hm? Mokuton: Daijurin no Jutsu.” He muttered underneath his breath while dark ebony spikes shot from his arm through the cage, piercing each and every pillar of red wood of the structure. The ash like wood kept the pieces in the air that they pierced, while the rest of them crumbled to the ground. Keeping his left arm extended, he finally dropped the limb while shakin it carefully. He didn’t want any more of the wood shards to come from his arm. “As you can tell.” He spoke softly while turning around, while at the same time, bowing towards the genin. “It’s black. But it’s not weak like charcoal, or ashes. It’s just as strong as Senju wood, but unique to myself.” He pulled down the bandages from his lower features, allowing the scent of rotten flesh to appear within the area of the trio. The scar from his left cheek to the corner of his lips dripped black ooze while his tongue graced his lower flesh to moisten the skin. “Any more questions?”

|Yuurei eyed the man down as he watched the man move towards his cage. He just sighed as the man started speaking to them again. He didn’t want to tell him anything because of how he was talking to them. If his approached had been different, and the tone his voice was nicer than he probably would have some answers from them. He didn’t want to talk to this guy, but not because he was a stranger, but because of his attitude and the proof that he was a criminal who had done killed people in the past. |
”This guy is plotting something right now, but what could it be? I need to prepare myself for the worst case scenario now,” he thought to himself as he looked serious right now. He heard what the man said and figured it was time to say something. ”Well you can show me anyway you would like to show me,” he said as he looked at the man as he was performing hand seals. He just stood his ground backing up a little bit. He wasn’t sure what technique he was planning on using, but he would find soon enough. That was when he heard the name of the technique and knew of it.
The Senju couldn’t do the technique, but he had seen his sister do it before. The wood that came out of his arm was all black, but he wasn’t surprised on how easy it destroyed his cage. He just looked at the pieces of his red wood that were pierced by the black ones. It was an interesting color and he honestly didn’t think there was another who had a different color and style of wood. Still, the fact that he was able to use such a jutsu meant that he was really strong.
The Genin knew that he wouldn’t be able to take him on, nor would he be able to take him on with the other Genin with him. He just heard him speak about the color of his kind of wood. ”That is an interesting color. I never saw black wood before being used by a Senju. Still, I must say it looks interesting. As for your earlier questions I could explain things for you,” he paused for a bit as he just looked at the infected area of what the man had revealed to him. That was not something he wanted to see, and well he didn’t think he would have seen that on someone’s face.
”The reason that I didn’t say anything after your arrival is because of this. The way you arrived and your way of speaking placed me on edge. It is why I cannot talk to you freely like I did with the other Genin. You asked us a question in a way anybody in this world wouldn’t want to answer. I know for a fact that you make me unease with how you say things,” he finished saying, but now he had a new question to ask the man. He wasn’t sure how the man would take how he said that, but he had to tell them the truth.
”Still, what happened to your face? And why did you leave your village?” he asked him wondering what he would say to him. It looked disgusting and honestly he could only wonder if it was getting worse. He was glad to help him, but he didn’t have any knowledge in medical ninjutsu. There was that and he was truly curious to why the man in front of him was a rogue. He couldn’t help but keep his guard up no matter what the man had said. It was just a feeling he had and knew that if he placed his guard down he would regret it.

|This whole situation wasn’t really what Mokuzai thought out to be. Most children, even shinobi, would be a bit intimidated from how he was acting. The nukenin was used to people stifling backwards from fear or curiosity; not scold him for how he talked. |”The reason that I didn’t say anything after your arrival is because of this. The way you arrived and your way of speaking placed me on edge. It is why I cannot talk to you freely like I did with the other Genin. You asked us a question in a way anybody in this world wouldn’t want to answer. I know for a fact that you make me unease with how you say things.”
“Are you..fuckin’ serious right now?” His brow shot up in an arch while he placed his hand on his hip, shifting his weight to the right side. “You’re pretty much tellin’ me to change the way I’m talkin’ or you won’t converse with me? What are you, some noble? You have a lot of grownin’ up to do then if you think you can have someone stop talkin’ from that simple little statement, kid.” If Yoi wasn’t watching him, Mokuzai would easily shut this child up the simplest way possible that he could think of. How would he be able to talk with no tongue? He would love to see the blood spurt from his lips while the Senju started to talk. A scoff came from Mokuzai’s direction once again: “You think I’m goin’ to rely that information towards you? What do I even gain from it? You need to learn to barter with a rogue before you start claimin’ to want information from me.” His tongue swiped the side of his lips, getting some of the black ooze from his scar on the tip of his flesh.
It was one thing to demand something, but another to indirectly insult him. Mokuzai had the urge to rip the emotionless face from the Senju, and place the firm skin over his injury. He could not figure out why he was getting his buttons pushed by this child. Was it just a Senju thing to have this sort of blunt personality; feeling superior over each and every person that crosses their path? Who knows? Mokuzai wasn’t even technically apart of the clan that he held a grudge against for so long. He had to restrain himself from physically acting towards the kid. Even though the Senju child wasn’t exchanging any info, it didn’t mean Mokuzai would stay quiet for too long. He loved small talk, even if he was the one doing it the most. It’s the only type of contact he has with other people besides Yoi. Even then, this information could probably get some sort of reaction out of the genin.
“You wanna know how I got this injury, hm?” He placed his hand near the scar on his cheek, closing his eyes for a brief second. “It was from my father. It happened recently, honestly. I was supposed to find secrets and weaken the defense of Konoha. I failed, and he labeled a shuriken with poison. Which as you can tell, did some tragic effects to my features. I mean, I did have a gorgeous face, and now it’s just gone to hell.” He slowly started to pull away his thumb and index finger while still pressing them against his cheek, opening his wound to show his teeth behind his scar. “It’s pretty deep, and I haven’t found an herb or method to get the poison out. The pain has completely numbed my face, and when it does get aggravated, I just get pissed off more.” He dropped his hand from his face, shrugging slightly before starting to think about the next question the genin had asked. Why was he so curious about a being that he scolded before? As the conversation went on, Mokuzai started to get a different vibe from the genin.
“I didn’t technically leave my village. They abandoned me.” His voice started to change tone to a darker, deeper volume. The rasp he hid finally showed itself in his words. “I was made in a lab, at least that’s what I’m bein’ told. I wasn’t even born into the clan. Some old bastard put some cells in me, and I was a part of 7 other beings that were tested just like me. Technically, I’m artificial. The jutsu that I have shouldn’t exist, but it does. Well, I mean I shouldn’t be able to use it, but that’s not the point. The village tossed me aside like trash and that’s when I cut my ties with that village. I wouldn’t be wearin’ this headband, honestly, but it helps me find people who know of my existence, and I track them down to get answers. After I do so, I end their breathing with the things they created. I already leveled one lab, and I’m gettin’ closer to findin’ the main one.”

|Yuurei noticed his reaction to what he had said. He was expecting to be attacked right there, but that didn’t happen. Instead, the man looked confused on what was going on here. The Genin just looked at him as he spoke up to him about growing up. He shook his head as he didn’t mean it like that, but it was too late to take it back. He shoulders dropped as he couldn’t believe this man was taking everything he said the wrong way. Still, there was nothing he could do as he just wondered what he would say to him now. |
The Senju from Konoha heard what he said, and nodded as he was taking mental notes about what he said. He was about to say something as he opened his mouth, but nothing came out. There was a reason for that, and that was the man started talking. He was going to tell him about how he had gotten that scar. This was going to be interesting indeed; this made Yuurei stay still waiting for him to start talking right now. He scratched his head as the man was trying to weaken his village’s defense. That was bad, but honestly there was nothing he could do against this man.
He had fought his sister, and he got his ass handed to him, so he figured this guy would do the same, but worse. He just nodded as he couldn’t believe that this man’s father had done this to him. The Genin bit his lip when he heard this because he didn’t think a father could do that to his son. He moved his hand forward, and was about to talk again, but the man spoke again. He was surprised about what he heard; how could a village do that to one of their own.
He didn’t say anything this time as he figured the man would elaborate more on this. He nodded as he found what the man said interesting. ”this is pretty interesting to be honest, but first,” he paused for a second. ”I wasn’t trying to insult you. I was just trying to help you with getting basic information from others, but that’s just how I feel. Still, you are right I don’t really have much information to give you. I am like you said a mere Genin,” he said to him as he just sighed.
”So, you were made in a lab? That is crazy, but at least you have the power to set things right. So, you father is the man who made you in the lab?” he asked him as he just couldn’t believe what looked to be turning into crazy and scary situation, had calmed to a normal conversation. ”I know I just met you, but it sucks to know that something like this happened to you, yet there is nothing I could do to help. You may be a criminal, but I don’t think you are that bad a person. Well probably a tad scary, but I guess you have to be that way, or you wouldn’t survive out here,” he said to the man.

|There was no reason for Mokuzai to be even answering these two. He didn’t owe them anything, not even the information that he had already spilled. “You know what?” He brought a hand to his chin, looking over the genin for a few seconds before turning his head to look over his right shoulder in the general direction that Yoi was in. “I shouldn’t even be explainin’ myself to you. You guys aren’t even that special to say hi to.” It was a pretty big waste of time for the nukenin. He was expecting some sort of fight, not just some small talk to get through the day. Especially from genin, fresh out of the academy ninja at that. The only one that held his interest was the Senju, but he didn’t even know that one’s first name. It did bother him, that he was deciding to leave the duo from before without knowing too much about them, but was it really worth it to begin with? |
”I wasn’t trying to insult you. I was just trying to help you with getting basic information from others, but that’s just how I feel. Still, you are right I don’t really have much information to give you. I am like you said a mere Genin.”
“Save that gaga shit for later. You’re just lucky I’m on a tight schedule to get through here.” Mokuzai didn’t want to listen to kids whine about how they said something. Did it bother him that he was spoken up to from a younger male? Yeah, it even almost caused him to explode out of anger. But he did wind up controlling it a bit more than he used to. “You don’t even know me and you’re already sayin’ I’m not a bad person? What the fuck are you? Some guru?” He laughed softly, foldin his arms while he turned his back to the kids. It was a risky move, considering they could gang up on him and try to take him down on the spot. He did have a backup plan, but it would cost his own life as well. A single explosive note would be enough to take them all out, as well as his own life, in case they were planning to jump him in that single moment. “I don’t wanna waste any more of my time, or your time with simple little questions or answers. It’s better if you guys go back to the village before I decide to take one of your headbands for my collection.” His head tilted to the side as he walked away, showing the rotting skin and the smirk that formed on his lips. His upper left corner lifted his cheek, allowing his white eye to form a crescent shape.
It was time to move deeper into the fire country, and he was going to make sure he didn’t leave without the answers he wanted.

|He was waiting to see if he was going to talk more about himself. He was really curious about this man, but how long would he stay here to answer his questions? This had turned from being scared, to allowing his curiosity get the better of him. He heard the man speak and his eyes widen with interest on what he was going to say. He just stood there waiting for him to speak again, and it happened. The man didn’t want to explain anything else to him. This brought his shoulders down and he sighed because he was upset. |
It was a real let down that this man felt this way, but there was nothing he could do to stop him. He looked at the man wondering what he was planning on doing. It seemed like he wasn’t in the mood to talk anymore, so he figured that he would attack them now, or just walk away from them. Yuurei wouldn’t mind the latter because then he wouldn’t have to risk his life for something so meaningless. That was when he made Yuurei flinch from the sudden use of words. The guy didn’t like what he had said about him, but he could feel that he wasn’t a bad person.
The Genin figured that he wouldn’t bring it up anymore. He was not going to argue with this man. If he did, he felt like it would probably cause a fight, and the death of him was not something he wanted today. Yuurei had watched him as he laughed and walked away from him. He didn’t do anything, nor was he planning on it. He just stood there hoping that the man would leave him and the other ninja in peace. He had something to do for his father, so he needed to continue his journey. There was nothing to do, but allow him to walk away.
The man spoke, but he was the only one talking now. Yuurei was just looking for the opportunity to make a run for it, and be on his way to doing the errand he had to finish. That was when he heard the man telling them to be on their way before he changed his mind. That was enough for him to make a move. He had made a few hands seals and he had quickly submerged into the ground and moved away from the criminal.
The Senju had made his way through the forest and back to the village. He figured that he could take another route to the road he needed to approach. There was that, and he was giving the man the opportunity to get away from where they were before he could start his traveling again. The thing that was running through his mind was the fact that the man had an infection and he was able to get it taken care of. He had met his first criminal as a ninja and in his entire life, but he was able to survive it, which was a great experience. Still, he knew that this experience was nothing compared to how it should have been.
