There would be no point arguing with the Grass-nin, and so Motonubu didn’t. Regardless of who ended up being right, what mattered more was who ended up being alive. Smug little crotch kicking brat he might be, the kid could possibly be exploited and that alone gave Motonubu motivation to play along.

The adult thing to do would be to put up with it, then lie like the devil about the kid later. He attacked me first, unprovoked. Hm, did I see him partaking in the drugs as well? Perhaps, I will decide that later. Satisfied with the beginning of his story Motonubu relaxed. This wasn’t his fight anymore.

He watched with a bit of his own smug bemusement as Takeshi’s men finally pulled themselves together and looked ready to counter attack. The kid kept blabbering but the chuunin didn’t have time to be bothered by trite insults. “Quite difficult to both stand down and secure a target at the same time. I am not sure I can reconcile the two.” Desire flared him in him to just backhand the little cretin who was trying to stare him down, but again, following ones baser impulses wasn’t not a very mature way to approach shinobi work. “At any rate, I do not know who your target is. You will need to be more specific with your request for assistance.”

Something weird was happening behind him, but Motonubu found the imminent threat of a prissy Grass-nin to be worth more consideration than whatever those deadbeat thugs were doing. The warehouse had emptied out and Kubo was gone. By process of elimination the kid must want Takeshi? How bizarre for him to of attacked Motonubu then, seeing how he’d so effectively neutralized the man earlier. Children! Always thinking with their heart and getting distracted at the most inopportune times-

Another enormous clattering shook the warehouse. A big, heavy, thorny something walloped the chuunin from behind. He flew like a ragdoll and smashed through the walls of the warehouse clean to the other side. Turned out that groin shot would be the least serious injury he sustained that night.

“Stand down, meaning stop attacking me, you dolt! This is all yourfault; do you know how long I’ve been undercover? Takeshi was supposed to lead me to someone who could manifest the Druid’s Heart in its final form so we could develop a drug to counter its effects, and now Kusagakure has to settle for interrogating an ex-EKD operative. You left me no choice but to break cover when you decided to start shooting ninjutsu left and right so that your friends could escape!” He kind of just screamed after his rant, childish tantrum overtaking him. He really was turning into Gemmei.

Still, his eyes narrowed. This Motonubu, he could be lying. Sure, he hadn’t attacked Junichi, but the likelihood of him being a Sand shinobi when he was operating with a group of thugs? At least Junichi had come clean. It appeared that the man had more pressing matters, however, as Junichi watched what appeared to be a monster of some sort fling the man into a wall. Whatever strain of Druid’s Heart Takeshi’s men had taken had some kind of adverse effect: The vines, bark, and sap that grew from them seemed to merge, locking the men in a towering creature made of mokuton, with fingers that splayed into thorny vines like a cat’o’ninetails.

What in gay hell is this shit?

Well, now it was three on one, maybe two, if Motonubu wasn’t unconscious.

With no time to calculate how to proceed in regards to the sudden appearance of a monster in his territory, Junichi ran through two sets of hand seals. His hands shined a bright blue, chakra sharpened into an edge as he ducked under one of the creature’s swings, raising a hand as the viney whips passed over him, causing them to severe. The creature roared, more than likely out of irritation than pain, and rather than swing, brought its foot down on top of Junichi.

What was that thing? Gnarled, knotted, and twisted, it reminded Motonubu of an overgrown shrub more than anything human. Had those incompetent thugs somehow become this behemoth?

How reassuring. Three stooges stapled together with some mystical drug garbage were still three stooges. It was not as though their skill or intelligence had increased, after all. Now they were just all put together, three birds ripe for the killing with one stone.

His left arm fell limp and he could not move the fingers. Blood ran down his sleeve and face, and something similar to the feeling of cracked ribs pervaded the side of his body the monster struck. Right now adrenaline kept him on his feet. That would only last for a short while, then he would likely collapse under the weight of his wounds. With his good arm he put a cigarette in his mouth, and managed to light it with a single match. He chose to prowl around rather than re-engage the beast head on. Let the kid deal with his country’s strange creations for now. Motonubu had another plan.

Good old Lugnut, may he rest in peace. He never did get to use his axe on any trees. The chuunin would honor his spirit with the next best thing.

When the wood creature’s attention turned to the boy yet again Motonubu leapt from the shadows. With a hollow thunk he sunk the axe into the back(?) of the monster. The axe gave him just enough time to latch both his feet to the side of the towering tangle of twigs, then leap up and axe it a second time when it tried to pluck him off. Like tree-cimbing bullfrog Motonubu repeated this process of axe, leap, axe, leap, until finally he reached the zenith of his climb. A bushy head of leaves sat atop the monster like a green wig.

Earlier, that kid tried to shame Motonubu about gassing children. He let go of the axe, leaving it embedded in the ‘head’ of the creature as he went into his pockets to retrieve his real weapon. Imagine that, Sawamatsu no Motonubu, feeling bad about killing children! He popped the lid off his flask with his teeth and dumped the strong smelling contents atop the creature’s foliage.

This one is for free, Kusagakure.
With that he spat out his cigarette and ignited the potent liquor soaked plant matter below. The whole ‘head’ went up in flames in an instant and a hideous, tri-tone shrieking came out from deep within the wooden brambles. The chuunin leapt off from the creature. With a sharp gasp he crumbled to his knees upon landing. Did he feel any remorse about immolating three Grass citizens alive?

Monsters come in all types of shapes and sizes, eh?

In place of Junichi, there was a shattered crate. Nearby, the boy amassed as much concentration as he could. The monster stood in several levels of his territory, meaning that he could piece together an attack using its own weight. He ran the mathematics from his cover while Motonubu sprang into action, scaling it with the axe of the man he had felled previously. Lugnut appeared to have been crushed by the monster in question, but it had failed to destroy the weapon which was being so aptly used.

Taking a deep breath, Junichi finally garnered and assimilated the creature’s weight, amassing it in the territories of his Hen’iki. He kept his eyes locked on Motonubu: From his hiding place, the creature didn’t seem to notice him, far too distracted with dealing with the man scaling it. Junichi’s eyes widened as the creation went up in flames – That’s one way to handle it… – and he watched as Motonubu leapt from his placement to the safety of the ground. Exerting the creature’s weight back on itself, he essentially dropped hundreds of pounds on nothing: The wood splintered, blood splattered, and pieces of burning wood flew across the warehouse, some impaling themselves into the walls of shelves.

His eyes met the Sand ninja’s for a moment, and Junichi let his territory fade, walking over, hands glowing a bright green, a chiyute. It was the least he could do to help the man out, even if he was a colossal dickhead. Despite the protests, he inevitably finished, and returned to where the unconscious form of Takeshi was.

Whatever had happened, the two had mirroring missions that had put them in an impossible position. Both seemed to realize that, but both still had to complete what was left of theirs. Motonubu had convicts to find, and Junichi now had to deliver a target to the nearest safehouse. Grabbing Takeshi, he slipped him onto his back and gave Motonubu a subtle nod.

Then disappeared in a puff of smoke.
