Welp it was Maru's day off and he believed that there was nothing really else for him to do since he didn't have to go through the struggle of training every day. So he decided to adventure into Susukino District to head to the local Sky Bar so he could drink his fill of rice wine and head to the clubs. Maru was in his more human like form, his hair a bit shorter than he kept it since he was known for having long hair. His face covered with a white painted eye mask that was similar to the kind of mask an Anbu would wear and instead of the fancy kimono he usually wears it was replaced with a suit with a coat that had white fur on the inside of it. Skipping to keep up was his masked youkai he calls Oof who wore a mask similar to it's Summoner only it was a full mask and a white kimono giving it the appearance of a child monk. Maru wanted to see if blending in with the crowd was possible since he is usually seen in his youkai form anyway, and it wasn't because of the demon hate because he didn't care about scaring people. He just didn't want to be asked to DO anything. People see a shinobi and wants to hire them off for the littlest things like babysitting or get something for them.
Maru didn't feel like doing any task for today… but boy was wearing his mask was a mistake. No sooner than later a panicked average looking lady calling names out which he assumed to be the names of some children that she may have lost. Maru paused, then slowly turned to cross the street hoping that the lady calling out wouldn't see him…. But she did. The lady approached Maru then gave him a tap on his shoulder and the masked demon turned. "Excuse me, have you seen my babies anywhere?" asked the woman, sounding frantic but Maru didn't bat an eye.
"Nope, what happened to them?" Maru asked then he cursed himself for asking that, he just wanted to go to the Sky Bar and go look at some better looking boobs than the ones he's looking at right now. But the woman continued even though the masked demon blatantly shown that he didn't care much about these missing children. "I went to the clothes store down the street here, when I left there we went and dropped my husbands sword off to be repaired with Mick and then we went to the market and got some food, when I went to the head to the gates to go to the Monastery to Raiden I noticed they weren't there." Maru looking down at his masked youkai, then placed a hand on his chin to seem like he was thinking however he just wanted to see if there was a way out of this. An idea came to his mind then looking back at the concerned woman he gave her a happy go lucky smile then told her. "Well…. I guess I'll help. That'll be 15,000 yen."
"For finding your children, shinobi don't do things for free now especially a jounin plus I'm putting my life on the line… plus if I have to fight anything for these children than it'll probably average around 30k soon… 15k up front then I'll help." He held his hand out for payment that he knew the woman wouldn't have, and from the expression on the mother's face it looked as if he was asking the impossible. "Well 15k upfront or I'm walking away." he snickered to himself. His small youkai Oof chuckled, seemingly enjoying the whole altercation especially against one from that church who worships a false god. Guess laziness would make anyone act mean especially if it's supposed to be their day off.
