Default Black Forest Resort

It felt weird, the rush of chakra could be felt in the air and the whole forest surrounding the shrine seemed different. It seemed like they were finally free from a large burden that had haunted them ever since they had arrived in the woods. The sound of birds began to ring through the ears of the chuunin and he looked at the two comrades that he had.

As he listened to Fuku, the feeling of optimism and pride rushed with the boy. He was ready to go into the next part of the journey, to make a name for him and make Sunagakure proud.


”I want to go to the next pat of this journey, we need to defeat this miasma and whatever other monsters are within the forest. We are destined to win this fight and we will make sure of it. Sento, what do you say old man; got another fight in you?” Sosu stated as a small smile crossed his face.

There was nothing more that Sosu wanted to do then to make it out of these woods a hero.

"Watch who you call old, kid."

Somehow Sento's mood managed to worsen as time went on. He was doing marginally better than he had been after an hour or so of rest, during which he made Sosu and Fuku watch as he cleaned and stitched the cut on his upper chest closed. In taking his shirt off to do so, his entire history was laid bare--the "justice" tattoo on his arm, the countless scars and burns dotting his entire upper torso.

"You'll be lucky to get to my age," he said, Ryuugamaru still gripped in his right hand. "Especially today."

He had to admit, watching Sosu fight was... concerning. He was enthusiastic, fearless... reckless. Stupid. Sento had watched a number of shinobi his age, all with bright visions of their futures, get snuffed out in an instant because they couldn't see what was right in front of them. It was why he refused to lead a squad back in Cloud, although he was certain Nagai wasn't going to let him get away with it for long.

Sento was, at least, encouraged by at least partially familiar jungle sounds. This wasn't like before, when he entered to nothing but deafening silence. He still wanted to know what it was that he'd killed. Sosu smashed the skull before he could even get a chance to look at it, leaving them walking into another situation blind. Again.

Hidden Sand is definitely different.

"We should continue to move," Fuku said as Sento finished his first aid session, "Though the power has been released from the last shrine, the miasma isn't gone. It is only slowed. To complete your mission, there is still another shrine you must attack. You say there was another team of shinobi handling the other shrines? In that case, I know which direction we must go next."

Fuku still seemed unconcerned with Sento's wounds, or with anything really. His expressions were plain, and he spoke in a flat tone. He watched Sento work, but now that the work was coming to an end, he started to move them in the direction they needed to go, to the next cardinal direction.

Fuku seemed to move without needing much guidance, he knew exactly where he was going even as the forest grew dark again, and the sound of animals faded yet again. It seemed they were heading back deep into the miasma.

As they traveled there was a sword stuck out of the ground, blade down. It looked like it was rather low quality, the blade chipped along the edge. Soon, there was another, and then another, before they were passing by collections of weapons big and small.

"It seems like we are getting close to the next temple," Fuku said.

Sento continued to heal himself with the bandages and Sosu was led by Fuku into the forest. It felt like the miasma began to become thick once again and to Sosu this was dangerous.

Sosu knew that the heavier the miasma, the more likely they were to the shrine or destination. Then the swords began to appear. At first there were was only one, then a few, then a dozen, and then the whole area was littered with the pieces of broken metal.

"You seem to be right, however, where is the shrine?" Sosu retorted as he looked at one of the larger blades. He had known enough to not pick any of them up.

"...pretty sure I've had nightmares that looked like this."

Sento wasn't even kidding; a barren battlefield with rusted and forgotten weaponry was, in fact, the backgrop of one of his recurring nightmares. In his dreams, though, he was unarmed, and forced to use what he found--everything kept breaking, and his faceless opponent was every bit as strong as he was. Between the miasma and his Gates usage earlier, the heavy feeling in his chest began to feel more and more like an anxiety attack.

He drew Tsugunai quietly, more as an act of self comforting than anything else. The blade seemed to respond in kind, the long, somewhat ancient looking bandage wrapped around the end coiling twice around his forearm.

"This is a graveyard, kid. If what happened earlier is any indication, this is a bigger problem than that shrine." Sento continued along behind Fuku, his expression grim. Surveying their surroundings, he could already see several problems. His own fighting style thrived in close spaces with multiple avenues of attack. This place was distressingly open and offered little opportunity for subterfuge and misdirection. The exact issue he had in his dream.

"We were 'close' when that wolf thing attacked too. I'd expect more of the same. Fuku... you may want to hang back." No sense being in harm's way if you're not gonna do anything.
Majinken rattled a bit in its sheathe as if laughing at Sento's thought.
