The sounds hade grew louder and the thickening moisture in the air was accompanied by a sea of fog. He had reached his destination. The black lake, Kurogi. Bushes and trees covered the area around the lake. Riku now understood why it was called the black lake. Standing along the beach of the lake he tried looking into it. He couldn't see a thing. The lake itself reeked of horrid smells and had somehow obtained a weird looking species of what resembled moss. It shouldn't even be called a lake. It resembled more of a swamp. Swamp Kurogi that should be its name. Stepping a step forward and lowering his head Riku tried peeking into the lake to see inside; but to no avail. At that moment he saw a little bubble appear from the surface of the water. A large fish jumped out and snapped at Riku knocking him over onto the ground. Anything could be living inside of this swamp like, black lake. Placing his hand on top of the swampy water, Riku discharged a little raiton to see if it would affect the lake and kill the creatures. Nothing happened. "Why isn't this working!" It didn't make any sense. He uses the same technique when he can't catch fish fishing, so why wasn't this working here. Oh well he just had to watch his back while in this tumultuous, black lagoon.

Riku was given the mission of coming here and searching for something dear to him. "How the hell am I supposed to see anything in all this fog!" He could only see about 10ft in front of him and on the side but anything else would have to wait until he got closer. Stepping over to one of the copious amount bushes along the sides of the lake he began digging into them searching for the item he came for. It took him 15 minutes and about 20 some odd bushes to find an item. It was a small beaten up, moldy teddy bear. His sister had the same type of teddy bear. Maybe this was what he had come for. It seemed weird though, he came all this way to find a teddy bear. It had only taken him a short time as well. He turned around to head back but paused. *This can't be it. There has to be something else* He changed directions once again and headed for another set of bushes. Hopefully he didn't have to go into the lake and deal with the creatures that lurked inside. He felt around many bushes and even looked into trees but only found small worthless and meaningless things. Watches, necklaces, small bits and pieces of what seemed to once be trinkets.

Only one bush remained and then he'd have to go into the lake. Something he had been dreading since he first arrived. As he approached the bush he heard a low growl come from it. Taking a few steps back and waited for the silhouette to show its face. Out from the bushes came two black, grey and white wolves. One female and the other male. Riku had stepped into their territory and now he was paying going to pay the price. They were both about the size of a full grown bear and circled Riku with the intent of killing him. Drinking from this water must have mutated their bodies into the beast like wolves that stood in front of him. They pounced, but Riku was prepared. He whipped out Zetsumei and slashed into both of them. The male bounced back but the female pressed on. She was the more agressive one. Riku swung his weapon striking her on the front left leg, but that wasn't even to stop her. She clawed at Riku's chest ripping open his shirt and into his flesh. It wasn't a deep scratch but one bad enough to alert Riku to not get scratched again. She went for a bite this time. Coming close to Riku's shoulder but was stopped by a grip of her throat. Riku's hand wasn't big enough to fit around the wolf's throat but he had death grip locked into place around her trachea. A small squeal left from her mouth before Riku released enough Raiton into her to kill her. Feeling the body become heavy and lifeless, he dropped her to the floor. Before he body reached the ground the male wolf was pouncing over it and Riku's hand biting him in the shoulder. They both fell onto the ground, wolf on top of Riku. The wolf's body was now like the other lifeless and heavy. Before the wolf bit into his shoulder, Riku brought his shuriken up and managed to stab the wolf in the center of its chest and mid-section. Rolling the body over and ripping the teeth from the meet of his shoulder, Riku stood up to both feet and placed the Zetsumei into its holder. He reached down into the mouths of the wolves and pulled a tooth from each one. He dragged both of the bodies into the bushes and attended to his wounds.

Now Riku was standing at the edge of the lake. He had to go in there. It was the only place that he hadn’t searched. What lurked in there, he didn’t know but he had to find the item. Taking a few steps in, he could feel the eeriness in the lake. Unknown things swam by and touched his boots, as he went in about waist and wrist deep. The lake wasn’t very deep. It only came up to about Riku’s shoulders, which dealt enough pain due to the injuries from the fight. Reaching down to search the floor, small little creatures started biting him. Small bursts of lighting was released from his hands periodically to keep the things away from him. It seemed that the only thing on the ground level of the black lake was rocks, gravel and corpses. He wasn’t ready to give up though. Feeling around for few hours he grew tired and gave up. Maybe it wasn’t meant for him to find it. Stepping out of the lake, he picked a nice spot to sit and dry. He reeked and was in need of a shower but that could wait. He sat along the edge of the lake and placed his hands behind him so he could lean and relax. Looking up he caught a glimpse of something in tree above. Scrambling to his feet he jumped up into the tree and retrieved the sparkling item. Leaping down from the branch and onto the ground he opened his closed hand to reveal what it was. It was his father’s ring. He had been deceased now for a few years. In this inside of the ring was the intials of Riku and his sister. *What is this doing all the way out here*

This was the item that he was to find. Riku knew it immediately. The ring now held deep sentimental value in his heart. He could leave now knowing he accomplished his mission. He put the wring onto his finger but it was a little to big, so he placed it into his pocket. Picking up the teddy bear he had found earlier he headed back towards the temple. He was to report into the headmaster of his findings and tell him about his mission. Looking back upon the lake before leaving Riku strung together a few hand seals and sent two bolts of lightning into the lake making a big explosion with the water.
