Act I, Chapter VIII: Morisei's Gift

WC: 581

It was dusk, and Chi was returning from a day of sharpening her skills at the dojo. She walked into the Shinku family's grand mansion and stopped to breathe in the modern luxury. She never thought she would live in such a lovely place like this; Not as a free woman at least. She admired the magnificent architecture of the nobleman's home and didn't let the cruelty he subjugated her with to diminish that. She took a few steps in the direction of her bedroom then quickly changed. Her feet turned and her body followed as all her body parts began to head towards the lush courtyard. With what little light was left she wanted to admire the foliage just once more before she retired for the night. The moon was out already and provided just an ounce more light and the glossy leaves glistened in its glory. Chi was at peace now, but that peace would soon shatter. The former princess was lucky to have found a home here in Sunagakure, but she couldn't forget her established mission.

“Morisei, I would like to speak with you.” She said calmly to the air as she took a seat near the shining pond. Morisei didn't reply. "Morisei!" She shouted now, a bit of force was deemed necessary.

"What, what?" He replied as his form emerged lazily out of the dagger on her thigh. "I was sleeping."

"Do spirits sleep?" She chuckled and flashed him a beaming grin.

"What is with you?" Morisei took a seat next to his companion. "You seem… chipper?"

Chi didn't speak at first. She was staring at the moonlight reflected in the pond. The woman could almost make out her form, darkened by the incoming night. She continued to smile and looked at Morisei. It was strange to sit next to someone who was nothing more than a legend to her for over twenty years. He had so much knowledge to give her and yet she couldn't even retrieve his home from the clutches of a crazed poacher with delusions of grandeur. Chi started to speak but then closed her mouth, unable to find the right words. There was an uncertainty of what actions she should take next. She needed to retrieve the staff of Morisei and reclaim her ownership as her birthright. However, there was another mission that she must embark on now that she wasn't sure how to follow.

"Speak, woman."
The spirit bellowed.

"I feel as if I need to repay the Shinku family for all the help they've given me."

Morisei shook his head, "you don't have to do anything for these people."

"Klonopin saved my life, though." She insisted.

"His name is Kaen," Morisei corrected her, "and you don't owe him anything. He had reasons for what he did. He wouldn't allow you to die out in the desert."

They sat in silence for a moment. Chi was contemplating the spirit's words while Morisei was wondering how long he would have to endure this before he could get some sleep.

“Morisei,” Chi spoke and pierced their silence. “Morisei, I don't think like you. It's not merely about him saving my life. He supplied me with a home. His sister restored me, although now I'm suspecting that might have been someone else… And his son has been kind enough to permit me into his life, despite the difficulties he's facing himself.” Another silence.

"Well, I know a way we can help the littlest Shinku…"

The boy would be training hard at the academy grounds, he felt like he almost did it in a perfect method. He was always training hard so he could keep up with the class without even realizing that he was already ahead of them all.
As he came home, the first thing he did was taking a quick shower and then attend to all the small wounds he got. Most of them were scrapes or really small cuts from his own kunai. He had been practicing it into oblivion in an attempt to get a better understanding, the most abilities, and how to get the maximum of it. Even combine it with his chakra.


The young one flinched for a moment and would place the last one on his arm. "There... I think that is all of them." The only one he couldn't do on his own was the bruise on his wrist. The fact it hurt he already knew he had to take it a bit easy instead of hand standing on it. He chuckled towards himself and started to run through the home. "Chiiiiiii--!!" He shouted out once he saw her finally and jumped beside her. "Ne-ne!" He tried to seek her attention. "Morsi here? You are speaking to him? Him being a boo again for not showing himself?" He was quite used to her now, the fact when she was speaking to the air, was almost always because he didn't want to be seen."Can I ask Moshi a thing once he wants to have a chat? I want to know more about you both." He smiled bright and placed his hands behind his head. He wore casual clothing right now, three-quarter pants with pockets on the side, and a single size too big shirt. It had the text on it. 'my ninja way.' and a shuriken on it. It was one of Hato's favorite ones.

A wild Hato appeared, jumping next to Chi and sitting where Morisei was. His form evaporated into a cloud and floated away. He reformed with his arms crossed and made himself visible to Hato. Chi chuckled but Morisei was not amused. It wasn’t Hato’s fault he couldn’t see the spirit, though. Morisei let it slide and let out a sigh. Chi was still amused by the incident but was more curious about what kind of question the boy could have for Morisei.

“Moshi,” the woman giggled. “Moshi is a good name for you.” She said to her spirit companion.

He just rolled his eyes.

“Question?” She asked the boy, looking to him now. She waited for him to ask Morisei his question. While she waited she thought about what Morisei was saying just before the boy appeared. It was sort of auspicious that he was thinking of a way to help the littlest Shinku just before the boy arrived. He had crashed Morisei’s thought so Chi wasn’t quite sure what he meant. He assumed that the spirit would speak once the boy had asked his question.

“Listen kid,” Morisei blurted out before the kid could ask his question. “I’m not a ‘boo’, I can’t be seen unless I want to be seen. I’m not hiding from you, you weren’t here.” He seemed to have forgotten what he was talking about just moments before. Being sat on seemed to have really upset his mood.

“Morisei.” Chi demanded, giving the ancient being a stern look usually reserved for moms angry with their small children. He crossed his arms and his legs and floated in the air.

Fine,” He finally said after pouting for a moment. “Ask your question, kid. Then I have something for you.”

He was allowed to see him, and it seemed something had happened either before or regards his nickname for the ghost. But he was watching in silence as he was waiting for a turn to speak or anything. "Listen Kid" Was the first thing Moshi said and he listened. "Huh? But I didn't see you before... You can vanish and re-appear for me..." He would say in a pouty manner in return as he then would hear the name of him sounding again by Chi. Even he knew already by that look not to mess with the woman. "Well..." He would take a breath, think for a moment... and then he spews out a few of his questions. "If you could choose a superpower, what would it be? What person has given you the best advice about your life? Since you are a ghost, did you die? Or did you leave your body behind? What personal object would hurt you more if you lose?" Just a few questions, but those were ones he was curious for, one more than the other. And he knew one of them might have been a sensitive subject... So the boy quickly added. "If you want to answer those question of course... I mean... Asking about your past life and the current one can be tricky? And how did you both get to meet each other? I really want to know that one." Out of all of them, he had at least picked one he wanted to know.

The boy did sit down and waited for the answer(s).

The boy exploded as his questions began to spew out of him. They were mostly random, Morisei thought. He had to pinch the bridge of his nose and squeeze his eyes shut tightly as he listened to the rabble. Chi was amused by Morisei’s frustration and even giggled somewhat childishly. Morisei was a bit of an asshole and it brought her great pleasure to what him squirm. She had become use to Hato in the short time she’s spent with the boy so far and such actions didn’t bother her.

“Alright, I’ll answer your questions but only once so listen up. I don’t need a super power I’m a centuries old spirit that resides in another realm. I’m the only one whose advice I’ve ever taken. Of course I died, then I put part of my spirit into my weapon and became this thing in front of you. My staff, but that’s already lost so I don’t know if that counts.” He eyed Chikara for a moment with a look of blame. Chi looked away, but not out of shame. She was angry at him for blaming her for not having retrieved the staff when he was the only withholding information.

“I first met Chi as a baby when her father wielded my staff. He was a real warrior, unlike this bi—”

“Moshi!” Chikara yelled. “No more.” Morisei crossed his arms and his legs and floated in front of the two.

“Anyway… Chi here was wanting to do something for you as a thanks but now I’ve become aggravated and don’t want to throw out my suggestion.” He pouted, looking away from the two. He expected some kind of flattery but Chi wouldn’t do it. She could find a way to make him do what she wanted. It was quite

The was overjoyed that his questions were getting answered. But even he was wondering about what staff. In his mind, he would picture a few but couldn't see Moshirei for something that fancy. He seemed to be... less luxury than that. And thus he blurted out: "Wait... you were that fancy?" He asked him and seconds later, he heard Chi yell. Even the little one froze on his spot by that and kept shush for a little. Even though he was curious about the tension in the air, he couldn't help but only now notice, chi used the nickname he gave Morisei. His brows raised a little as that conclusion came to his mind but soon looked towards Moshi then Chi. "Wait. As a thank you for me..? But what for?" he raised his hand to scratch the back of his head. "If with being aggravated you mean me sitting on you... I am sorry for that." He would be tilting his head towards the left-hand side as he looked towards the spirit. Yet the small boy wasn't good at reading between the lines yet regards flattery. "Can I ask one more..? What did you want to suggest? Dad told me once it is bad to hold it for yourself." He would look away at those words and play with the soles of his shoes.

The boy blurted out what Morisei thought to be an obscene statement. He wasn’t sure what he meant by him being fancy, but he was somewhat flattered by it. He often thought of himself as a higher class than the mortals that surrounded him. The man had transcended death to become an immortal spirit with the ability to manipulate the small-minded humans that possessed him. He thought of himself more as a god than anything else. If it weren’t for Manahime, he’d consider himself the top dog of all the Tsukumogami spirits. Of course, this wasn’t necessarily true… He did think this, just not to Manahime’s face.

“Listen, when I was alive I did a lot of walking. Like a lot. I traveled to almost every country, even some which weren’t countries yet. I needed a walking stick and so I produced a staff which I also used to fight with. There’s nothing fancy about it.” He seemed to have been frustrated by the question, but in actuality, he was embarrassed and didn’t want to admit it. He did like the staff and thought that its ornate form was quite luxurious compared to most modern-day weapons. He wouldn’t freely admit this to anyone, though, even himself.

“I thank,” Chi responded to Hato’s next question. “Good to me, you. Help me… Adjust.” She smiled at the boy. He and his father had helped him not only by letting her live in their home but by helping her adjust to the new surroundings she found herself in. While a slave at the nobleman’s mansion she thought she’d never be a free woman again. The chains that restricted her chakra gave her no slack. If it weren’t for Naku being purchased by the nobleman and then left with her, she may never have gotten free. The goofball was sometimes good for more than just a cute little brother.

“Anyway, my suggestion was something I think would help you to become more powerful. Together, Chi and I can help you gain access to the realm which I normally reside in.” He paused for dramatic effect. “Meaning, you’d be able to summon your own spirit to use their power. "How does that sound to you little man?”

Wondering... He was honestly wondering what the other meant with the realm. Was it his own realm? And how could this ghost help him become stronger? More powerful... He would tilt his head and think about it. In his thoughts, he would imagine a few scenes. One was where the other realm would be like the stories from Alice in Wonderland, where everything was floating. He could already see it in front of him, candy floating, stuffed animals, and more. That you drank a tea kind and you shrunk, the other was to enlarge yourself. The boy got a few of the wildest ideas. Eager to see what the other realm was, but on the other hand. He was doubting it, fearing to get to his realm, he would have to be on the edge of death. That you first had to walk through a tunnel to get towards the other part, or what if you fell through the ground? Many ideas went through the young male as he started to slowly scratch his head. Doubtful to answer a solid yes, especially as Moshi never had exactly told how they were going to make him stronger. His body shuddered at the many horrors like thoughts that got to him. Slowly the boy looked up to him and started to talk. "I... don't need to die to get to your place right? If that is the case, I am good like this.. I don't want to die, not yet. I want to get stronger than my dad! I want to beat him, but I do want to get stronger. Stronger so I can defend myself and others who I care for!"
