Ninjutsu with a Potential House Visit! [Open]

This most wild location of the village is mysterious and dangerous to those unprepared for its surprising depths. Home to many hidden dojo's of great martial artists as well as the home of both the Haku and Inuzuka Clans in Cloud the Ancient Forest has been a place where many legends and stories have been located. Creatures stalk its depths, and with the additions of some medical experimentation's escaping the hospital and fleeing into the darker parts of the forest, almost anything is possible.

Ninjutsu with a Potential House Visit! [Open]

Wed Apr 17, 2019 6:15 pm

The forest was always alive. Not in the natural sort of sense but the creatures within it always had their shifts. Some only came out at night, usually the strong or the bizarre. During the day out would come the weaker, the survivors. Airi knew about the Yokai that lived within the forest, some things that were outright evil…while others more kind and just trying to live. She had even heard reports and rumors of hospital experiments that escaped. Truly bizarre beings that imagination could not even help you to grasp. This was the area that Airi often came out to now to do training. Whether it was to make sure no one was in danger, to physical training, to patrolling Airi liked to spend time in the forest. For one thing it reminded her more of where she came from, and two…it allowed her to be a bit freer than she usually was.

Today Airi was still somewhat recovering physically though she had only mild aches and pains. She was doing basic physical condition to maintain her health, but today she was going to focus on Ninjutsu. She should be working on Genjutsu but to practice she needed a target and…she just could not bring herself to do that. She started to gain a number of different jutsu under her belt but very few of them were techniques she would consider mastered. If she could not flex her physical muscles…she might as well flex her mental and spiritual ones.

Airi had with her a yellow basket for a lunch which she set down next to a nearby tree. She was wearing her traditional casual outfit, she did not feel a need to come fully quipped and should she need to equip she could always at least pull out her scroll for weapons. Now the real question was what to train. This place was the spot where she met Miki and found it empty ever since that last meeting, it was a clearing through so it offered a flat even field to do jutsu.

“I think I’ll go with…” Airi focused and placed her feet firmly on the ground. She moved through hand seals making sure to only use one hand for each…she was attempting to cast two jutsu at the same time which as she trained more and more found this to be impossible. Maybe it was just her skill level but…”Earth Element Rock Golem!” She watched as the earth began to spawn forth a Earthy dirt human about seven feet tall. As it stood before her waiting for orders she finished her other technique. “Water style Water shark Bomb!” Airi looked over at the small pool of water that would allow her to spawn a water technique of this size. Now the real question…would the rock golem win or the water shark bomb?

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Airi spent the following hour repeating these two techniques over and over again. She hoped the explosions of water were not bothering anyone. She was certain it might draw attention to anyone passing by but she wanted to do this research. What she figured was that the Rock golem won about sixty-percent of the time. It was fascinating trying to maneuver two different techniques while trying to avoid with one and hone in with the other.

After an hour or so though she figured that was enough and sat down by a tree in the noon day cloudy sky. Sure not beautiful weather but this was a lovely day if you were a Cloud Shinobi. As she saw down and popped open her food she smelled it. Homemade rice, miso, some fruit. Just a lovely light lunch.

As she glanced around she knew she would need to repair some of the moved earth around to relevel it. Though it appeared one tree had collapsed in the explosion. As she looked out she thought she saw a structure. A clan…or maybe something else. If she was near clan property that would probably not be good…maybe she would go there and apologize to whomever lived there…she needed to finish lunch though first. “Maybe, I’ll check and make sure I was not bothering anyone…” Yea that might be a smarter plan than just ignoring it and keep making loud bangs. She nodded in agreement as she put more sticky rice into her small portable bowl.

The Ancient forest was a place that Enatsu frequented. It was the place with the most life in the village, and the springs of the mountain were like full lakes brimming with life in the waters. He was in tune with this sort of environment, to be honest it always made him feel most at home in this village. The Ancient Forest's borders were finite, yet within these boundaries there was an abundance of life. You could feel it when you entered the domain, it was as if the energy around the forest was more wild but organic. It was difficult to explain to others but having an intimate connection with water and life such as he did allowed him a foreign perspective. As Enatsu walked, he'd observe the forests trying to get a grasp of his surroundings while he made notes of the forests' state.

It had been about a week since his first training session with a veteran martial artist named Yojimbo. His body was still aching terribly from their bout, he spent three days training with the man, and those three days were hell. During that time Yojimbo wore Enatsu down physically, after that he forced the boy to use as much chakra as he could muster. This was only day one of their training, and after hours of this exhaustion, Yojimbo threw Enatsu in the forest and told him that he would have to avoid Yojimbo for the next two days while simultaneously surviving and not keeping watch of the environment. He remembered how each time he failed to catch Yojimbo he was hit with multiple Taijutsu attacks accented with Chakra Absorption. Those attacks did double the damage to Enatsu who could barely maintain his chakra at this point. Yet he was still expected to dig deeper and summon forth more of his aura in order to sense the forest around him and keep watch of the rough instructor. Just thinking of that time brought Enatsu a deep chill down his spine.

Today while not like that day had brough a new habit out of the young boy. Enatsu let a bit of chakra loose from his body, allowing it to seep from him. It wasn't chakra being mustered for an attack or even a defensive measure, there was no need to condense it to that level. This exercise was more about letting the energy seep from your body while simultaneously feeling and sustaining it. This was a great method of training for someone like Enatsu. He had an abnormally high amount of chakra but couldn't make full use of it efficiently. For larger techniques he spent way too much time gathering and molding the large chakra, so it was always easier for him to start off with a smaller technique and force it to larger proportions with a Jutsu Expansion. All that required was pouring more energy into something you formed until it was ready to burst. In this way, this small chakra sensing exercise was a way for him polish control.

After about ten minutes of this exercise, the particles in front of him almost seemed to scatter. This was more so an exercise of feeling the chakra around you, and his had encountered something not too far from him. It wasn't before long that he heard the loud cracking boom of a crash. It was almost like you could hear waves crashing against the ground, Enatsu likened the sounds to when he performed his own jutsu. The curious blue skinned boy would continue walking, and now he had adjusted himself to the sounds. Another ten minutes had passed by with Enatsu following the increasingly loud sounds of someone using Ninjutsu. He'd come to a point where he could visibly see someone beyond the tree-lines near a body of water. They had erected a golem made from stone, the very earth around her. It seemed that she was creating a dummy out of the rock, and then utilizing other jutsu to attack it. Now before he thought he could hear the sound of waves crashing, but he had yet to see her technique. She wove hand-seals together increasing the amount of chakra she was exuding, and then she released her power. The chakra she was molding attracted the water behind her acting as a catalyst for her technique, a shark was formed from water and then crashed into the golem. Enatsu was impressed, by her Water Shark Bomb jutsu. Part of him was curious about the difference in their Water jutsu, considering that was Enatsu's main talent however the idea was fleeting. as shyness set in

The genin decided not to move just yet allowing the girl time to continue her training. He wasn't sure if it was a good idea to go out there, but he wanted to see more of what she planned to do. The mysterious kunoichi had stopped using the Water Shark Bomb, Enatsu must have came at the end of her training. She took a seat instead, while brandishing a yellow basket. Next she would take out an assortment of food; rice, soup and it seemed like some different fruits. He wasn't trying to be creepy but he was just nervous, yet as time progressed he felt more increasingly weird. On top of that, there was always the possibility that she had already picked up on his presence. Who knows if she was just waiting or uncertain, all of these thoughts were building on him. The blue boy slapped his cheeks, Come on Enatsu, you're not doing anything wrong, stop being so scared and go out there!

He'd psyche himself up a bit, before breaking free from the trees. He'd take a few steps forward before calling out to her, he didn't want to just invade her space so suddenly. "Ahh, Hello out there! I saw you practicing your jutsu, it was good..." it was good? Seriously, that's the best he could come up with. The rest of his words started to get choked up behind his wall of uncertainty. He was internally dying of embarrassment. Other kids his age probably would have proudly walked up with their chest poked out boasting of their abilities or issuing challenges. This one was far from that kind of personality. To the girl before him, he would probably appear to be a bundle of nerves judging from how he approached and the distance he greeted her, and his hushed voice that he was trying to yell out with. He decided to force one more question out before giving in, "Do you know any other ones?"

Appearance notes:
SpoilerShow
Enatsu is wearing normal cloud shinobi clothes. He has on the traditional one shoulder gray vest and is wearing his headband around his left bicep. Enatsu is wearing a holster with a wooden stick at his side like a sword. The stick is in the shape of a needle, and the size of a kendo stick. He resembles the Avatar for the most part; pale blue skin, slits on his face, and beady silver eyes.

Airi was deep in thought thinking about whether or not she really wanted to go and bother whomever lived in the building. She figured it might just be rude and if she really was bothering someone they would probably come and tell her. Shinobi often were more forward and active than passive. A trait she seemed to be lacking. She was thinking about the mission with Kanagawa-san that she would be going on. She needed to be ready to really show her stuff. Kanagawa really did not know much about her and with her now lack of holy jutsu her one real connection to her was gone. She wondered if Kanagawa would not deal with her upon knowing she lost her exalted abilities. Airi needed to prove she was worthy of the time of a Jounin mentor.

As she munched on some more sticky rice she thought she heard something in the distance. Turning to look over to where she heard it she noticed…someone. It was a boy…she had a hard time guessing but he seemed young. She could also feel chakra coming off of him. Was he a Yokai…? She spent a lot of time in the forest trying to meet more demonic beings who were hopefully friendly. Her success was about fifty-fifty. This boy however did not give off the traditional malevolent feeling. His pale blue skin…she had never seen that before. He had a headband around his arm which meant he was a Kumo-shinobi. So no matter what he was he was integrating into society. Still looking that different can’t be easy…most things were ever easy for those who took up the shinobi life. He was at least a Genin which means they were similar rank or Airi was lower. She would presume he was higher until she knew for certain to be safe.

She found herself already smiling happily as she swallowed and set her food down. She got up from the floor and brushed herself off. He did not come any closer which surprised her. Was he nervous about her? She thought about what he said…he said what she did was good. Honestly…she felt like she could have done a lot better. As she looked him over he seemed capable and while he had a weapon that was not uncommon to have in the forest. She had several on her though in a scroll. As she waved towards him she called out, “I do know a few others though I would say they are my most impressive ninjutsu!” She did know a few others and to just start throwing hand seals around was scary for anyone who seemed wary.

She was trying to be inviting but maybe he was looking for confirmation to come closer. “My name is Irie Airi! You can come closer if you want to so we are not yelling!” She made her way to meet him in the middle. She placed her hands behind her back and as she got closer she tilted her head slightly. As she looked closely at him her eyes sparkled a little. “Your eye color is so pretty, they remind me of the moon on a clear night…” She seemed transfixed for a moment but then turned her head away. Silver was really pretty.

“I guess my other larger jutsu that are nin based would be some low level wood jutsu…low level fire jutsu…some decently tough lighting jutsu…OH! I know one really good shuriken technique. My Specialties though are Taijutsu and Medical Jutsu.” She listed each sort of counting on her fingers to make sure she did not miss anything. As she glanced him over he looked a little roughed up. Any medical jutsu she used would probably not help him all that much. She wondered if he himself had been training in the area. It would be silly of her not to assume so. He did seem a little tired. Hopefully he had not been attacked…though if he was he must have handled it really well.

“If you are hungry I brought food if you are interested?” She gave another deep smile and followed up with, “What sort of jutsu do you like? I know when I started I loved Piercing Tajutsu, along with water jutsu. I’ve broadened a lot but those have always held a particular liking for me.”

She figured if she could get him talking about what he liked it might ice break them more. He approached her so he must want to talk about something. Trusting a random person in the woods was traditionally a bad idea but…Airi was prone to get hurt first rather than mistrust. She knew for certain she was not going to ask why he was in the woods, unless he volunteered that. Some people had things they did not want to talk about after all.
