"So what to do?" Kaihen asked himself as he walked down the market streets. It was a beautifull day. No clouds, no wind, just the sun out in the wide blue sky shinning down on the village of Iwa. It was about 80 degrees outside. As Kaihen walked slowly through the market he would stop and listen to the merchants as they attempted to convince him he needed what they were selling. Not interested in buying anything he would kindly reject them with a smile and a nod. Today Kaihen was off from his duties.
Feeling a little thirsty he stopped at a small resturant which had an outside section where the customers could eat. As he entered he quickly scanned the faces in the room and walked up to the counter with a smile.
"Hello, May I get a bottle of water please?" he asked the girl who sat behind the counter. She quickly went to the back and returned with a bottle of water.
"Seems like you guys are busy today huh?" he said as he paid and looked around the place. It was a cozy place , not to big but very well decorated.
"Yea it gets like these every day the weather is nice" she replied with a smile.
Kaihen thanked her for the water and went outside of the building and sat down at one of the tables.
[At the store across the resturant from Kaihen]
"Okay I want you to hand me all the Ryo you have" said a man wearing khaki pants and a black leather shirt with chains wrapped around his stomach and chest. The chains ran all the way across his arms as well. He was wearing a black bandana wrapped across his face. On the bandana there was a picture of a skull with a kunai in its mouth.
"But sir you cant do that , this is all that I made today!" yelled out the old man who owned the store. There was noone in the store at the moment.
"listen to me if you don't hand me what I'm asking for you won't live another day!' yelled out the thieft. The old man attempted to run out the back of the store but the thieft quickly jumped over the counter and struck the man in the stomach causing him to fall to his knees gasping for air.
"Since you don't want to hand me what I ask i'll just take it by force" Yelled the thief. He beated on the old man and took all of his ryo. The old man managed to get up and run after him. They both exited the store.
The old man grabbed the thiefs arm to try to pull him back but the thief kicked him down to the ground. Kaihen took notice of the attack.
"Hey what the hell is going!" Kaihen yelled out to the thief as he stood up from his seat to walk over to him. The thief laughed and threw down a couple smoke bombs. Kaihen ran over to the old man and helped get to a seat.
"Damn it, he took all i had" the old man said as he starred at the ground. Kaihen watched the man as he spoke.
"Do you remember anything specific about the thief" asked kaihen. The old man nodded and coughed.
"Yes , on his bandana he had a skull with something in his mouth" replied the exhausted old man. Kaihen quickly recognized who the culprit was. Kaihen called for medical help ,and assured the man he was going to find the culprit.
' it is one of the bandits from the mountains' thought kaihen as he walked back to his table and grabbed his drink.
"I can't just go into the mountains by myself though" he said out loud as he thought of a plan.
