Title: Rain. Simple.
Description: Shira, Osamu
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 05:57 AM (GMT)
Osamu tread over the war scarred land with soft steps, wary of the land torn in war. While he normally might not have ventured out her, he had heard whispers that a few ninjas he was trying to find might be here. So he moved with cloak drawn and hood up to cover his face. His right arm was hidden in his cloak and the empty dark sleeve hung empty while his right hand was gripping the handle of his rapier to draw in case of attack. More then that he wasn't just looking around, his eyes were marked with the signature eye mark of the arrengan his clan was famous for. He would disengage it if it looked like he wouldn't be needing to kill someone and he watched the flow of energy around him, waiting for signs of life.
Soon he could see the top of one of the tall building that made up this village by the waves of energy bounding around it unlike the empty air around it. He only slowly regarded it as he dropped the arrengan to confirm it. He stopped to rest himself a moment standing in the muddy half-crater, probably caused by a doton user long ago in a forgotten conflict.
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 4, 2011 06:01 AM (GMT)
ShiraHoshi wasn't in her homeland....No, not quite. She looked around herself for a moment, her nose sniffing quickly at the air. Ah-ha.... She thought to herself as she padded across the large landscape before spotting a squirrel. She growled eagerly and gave chase, soon catching it between her teeth and snapping her jaws shut, killing the rodent...squirrel, thing. She walked over to a spot under a tree and began to chew/eat the squirrel.
ShiraHoshi's pack was in Ame. Ame was their home territory. They trusted their alpha to come home to them whenever she was away. ShiraHoshi wasn't quite sure why she ventured out this far. She guessed it was just the need to explore the lands.
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 06:10 AM (GMT)
There was something new in the air. Something that hadn't been here before, something new on the winds. It wasn't a smell, it was the abscense of something not the addition of something. He felt drawn towards the place he knew something was missing. Moving with less caution then before he moved towards the area he felt was right. As he rose out of the dip in the valley he saw something that had let the skilled Jounin down. It was just a wolf enjoying a meal. Nothing strange about it. He regarded the wolf with mild interest, not much of a hunter and not much to revere canines as something of wonder. He just watched for a moment in quiet contemplation as his jet black hair remained nestled under the dark hood and his liquid build of 6' passive in stance as the green orbs watched. Semi-curious at never havign seen a live and moving wolf close up.
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 4, 2011 06:12 AM (GMT)
ShiraHoshi finished the squirrel in no time. She licked the bones clean of the meat juice. She seemed to smile, satisfied with the 'snack'. She picked herself up and looked around for a moment, before spotting Osamu. She stared at him silently, her light blue eyes piercing into his own.
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 06:20 AM (GMT)
There was something odd about this canine. He hadn't met a wolf before, but he had met plenty of normal dogs, and this one was nothing like it. It didn't even look like it regarded him with scorn, just was observing him. He spoke in an inquisitive voice, almost as if it was the standard response the wolf would expect. "Greeting.
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 4, 2011 06:24 AM (GMT)
"Evening" ShiraHoshi spoke as she looked at Osamu. Shirahoshi began to walk towards him. Each step was with careful caution, ready to get on the defense if Osamu got offensive.
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 06:32 AM (GMT)
The wolf talked back. Calmly, immediately Osamu's mind kicked into gear. Wolf talking. Ninja frogs talked. There were ninja dogs. Within the fraction of the time it took to blink he had rationalized he was talking to a ninja wolf. With a shake to knock off the dazed look he smiled and knelt to be at the same level of the wolf though his right arm was still hidden under his cloak as it had been for his entire journey. "How is the day treating you so far?"
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 4, 2011 06:36 AM (GMT)
"Well, yourself?" ShiraHoshi asked, now a few feet away from him. She sat down on her haunched, her snowy white tail curling around her small, lean body. She gazed at him curiously. Most people jumped about a foot back when she spoke. Probably because 'wolves weren't supposed to speak like humans'. ShiraHoshi scoffed at the thought.
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 06:40 AM (GMT)
Deciding that he should treat her, he was guessing the wolf was a her by voice and form, with the respect of an equal he sat cross legged on the ground his the hilt of his longsword worn on his left side poked out of the cloak as he sat but it was wrapped in cloth and he made no motion to draw it. "My day was uneventful and bland till I happened across you. I'm curious, do you know this land well?"
He could ask for information as he would another person, no big deal.
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 4, 2011 06:43 AM (GMT)
ShiraHoshi titled her head to the side for a moment. "Not well, no. This isn't my homeland. My name is ShiraHoshi Ookami. I am the clan leader to the Ookami clan. Yourself?" She asked, her tail couldn't help but wag slightly out of curiosity. It was a natural, doggish instinct of hers. She couldn't help that she was interested in learning about new people/things.
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 06:49 AM (GMT)
He rose a brow at this and had to give it some thought. He wasn't exactly sure if he wanted anyone to know who he was REALLY, but her being a wolf won him over. "I'm visiting the land so I might have less knowledge then you. I am Osamu Banin, leader of the Banin Clan in Iwagakure. Plwasure to meet you Lady Shira. What brings you out here?"
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 4, 2011 06:52 AM (GMT)
"Hunting. Trying to find more game for my pack" ShiraHoshi said as she laid down on her stomach, uncaring for the mud that was beginning to lather on her snowy-white fur. She'd likely jump in a pond later to get it cleaned off. Hopefully it won't damage my skanky kimono if I become human ShiraHoshi thought to herself with a frown.
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 07:01 AM (GMT)
"How's the hunting coming? I personally haven't seen too much since I left the woods outside of Konoha." While she laid down, he remained sitting down, since laying down would just be ridiculous for him. Instead he remained sitting carefully examining her finding her curious and now actually wanting to see this pack, but asking now would be out of his bounds and he was enjoying the conversation.
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 4, 2011 07:04 AM (GMT)
"I've found a few small animals, but other then that, nothing too extensive" She spoke with a small frown. She gave a yawn. It had been a long run for her from Kumo, to here. ~~gah, parents nagging me to get off, sorry for shortness D:~~
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 07:17 AM (GMT)
"Troublesome, I can't offer anything of my own and the large game seems quite a distance, but you appear unrested. Perhaps I should escort you home?" He was curious of this pack she spoke of and if they were all ninja wolves such as she(still believes that she can't change human and is just a special wolf). He was intensely curious as to this but wouldn't follow her without consent.
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 4, 2011 03:29 PM (GMT)
ShiraHoshi smirked. "Perhaps it'd be easier if I were to make myself look like you humans" She held in a laugh. In the blink of an eye, there was Shira. She was standing, so she lookd down at him. She had very long, snowy-white hair and scarlet red eyes. Her nails were rather lethal looking. She was covered by a 'mini robe' as she liked to call it. It was strapless and sleeveless, and only went down to her thighs. Her legs were covered by a pair of translucent black thigh-highs that stayed up with a black garter attached to them. Not exactly your average attire but hey, ShiraHoshi wasn't exactly your most 'average' of people.
Osamu Banin - June 4, 2011 09:39 PM (GMT)
TO be honest Osamu was just about to ask about what she meant when he suddenly had a woman standing in front of him. His face was drawn into a frown which was his automatic response instead of a stunned look. But meanwhile his mind was stunned. He was tumbling over rational reasons how a wolf turned into a woman, but was currently drawing blanks. Hoping not to sound rude he asked the question he needed to ask, but his frown was still apparent. "I assume you may get asked this frequently, but you were a wolf a few seconds ago. How are you human exactly? Or is this a genjutsu?"
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 5, 2011 12:41 AM (GMT)
ShiraHoshi smiled. She was a bit surprised he didn't go totally wide eyed...or drooly, some boys got drooly whenever she shifted into her human self. "I'm kind of what you'd call a werewolf. Sort of. Except me and my clanmates can fully control whenever we are a wolf or human. We prefer to stick to our wolf self. It's a lot easier to get by" ShiraHoshi said with a pleasent enough smile as she wiped away some potential dust/must that could have gotten on her.
Osamu Banin - June 5, 2011 01:00 AM (GMT)
He didn't respond to that right away, since he at first rationalized she was joking, then his brain kicked in gear and he realized that what she said had to be true since he had NO explanation for it otherwise. So after a heavy sigh and an expression of being lost he shook his head."Though I take it calling you a werewolf would be bad then?" He looked over and examined her again thoroughly, before a light grin tugged at his lips. Finally something interesting.
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 5, 2011 01:21 AM (GMT)
"Wolf yes. Human or werewolf is a no" Shirahoshi said with a frown. She didn't like being called a human. It wasn't really what she was. Werewolf just sounded completely unorthodox. Wolf was the best way to slice it. She looked up at the sky, seeing a few clouds begin to part slightly. "I wonder how much longer until night time" She asked to no one in particular as she shifted her eyes towards Osamu again.
Osamu Banin - June 5, 2011 01:35 AM (GMT)
He gave a light chuckle at preferring to be called a wolf."I'll just stick with Shira for now." However at the remark of wondering if night was fast approaching he smiled and lowered his hood, letting out his wavy jet black hair come out, coming down his forehead to the top of his eyebrows.Not sure right away, at first glance 3 maybe 4 hours?" Deciding that since he had already told her who he was there was no reason to restrain himself and brought his hands together in a hand seal as the pupils and coloring in his eyes to be replaced by what looks like a cartwheel design with the center missing as he looked up at the sky."Arrengan...........It is much closer to 4 hours than three. If we are in a hurry, I would have you lead since you have already been in this area."
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 5, 2011 01:42 AM (GMT)
"I can lead you back to my clan lands, but I caution you...my pack hasn't been exactly treated well with humans lately. Even with myself there to protect you, my clanmates may get a bit....testy, to say the least" ShiraHoshi said with a frown. Fourish hours would be enough time to get back to her homeland being they were on the outskirts of Kumo at the moment.
Osamu Banin - June 5, 2011 01:49 AM (GMT)
"I will choose my words and actions as cautiously as I choose a blade milady. I will harm none beyond what is realistic. Thank you for offering to guide me at all." He didn't like the sound of a pack of angry wolves and that he would be walking straight in, but it felt better having someone who was on even terms with them. So that was nice.
ShiraHoshi Ookami - June 5, 2011 01:57 AM (GMT)
"['b]Very Well"[/b] ShiraHoshi said before shifting back into her white-wolf self. "Keep up" She said before running. She ran back towards her homeland, wanting to see her pack again.
~Who start next thread?~
Osamu Banin - June 5, 2011 02:05 AM (GMT)
He'd smile as she changed back into a wolf, to be honest he felt awkward taling to her as a human, it just bugged him for some reason, however as she set off he buckled his longsword in so it wouldn't swing around as he ran and sprinted after her. Leaving the hood down seeing no reason to put it up.
(You probably since you need to describe the pack home area)
