"So, how long has this been going on?" Ayatsuri leaned against the counter, arms folded on the cool, brown surface.

The flower shop owner slowly tipped her container of water over one of the potted prickly pear plants. In fact, most of the plants in her store had pricks and spikes. Maybe she thought it was clever to have these types of flowers since the shop was located in the Village Hidden in the Thorns.

"Ummm. Quite some time. About a year."

"Uh huh. So what kind of criminal activity are we talking about here? Mafia-esque? Terrorist groups? Senseless violence?"

"There is always senseless violence," she smiled dishearteningly, "but the crime is usually organized. Attacks on nearby caravans, robbery, drug dealing...it's putting this village into a huge depression. And nothing is getting better. I'll probably be out of business soon." The young woman shrugged, moving onto a small cactus.

"Have you seen any men in suits? Colored suits, weird colored suits. Perhaps yellow or powder blue?" Ayatsuri came into contact with two men in suits, and both of them admitted to being a sort of ring leader. What type of crimes these guys were running was unknown, but Suna appointed Ayatsuri responsible for getting as much information as possible. He wouldn't of had it any other way.

"Ummm." She was a very nervous-looking gal. "I haven't. One of my girlfriends did, though. It was a few days ago. A man in a yellow suit, had a cigarette in his mouth, cleaned up really well. She almost went home with him, actually."

Bleck! Ayatsuri nearly gagged. "I know him! That's the one!" His palms slammed against the counter top. "Where did she see him? Where was he?"

There was a commotion outside, but the store owner didn't seem concerned. It probably happened enough that she had learned to ignore it.

"Where your friend see the man in the yellow suit?!"

The young woman gasped, shocked by Ayatsuri's sudden change in tone. He was far more aggressive then before, slamming his hands against the counter and yelling. "Uh...it was at the bar. She paused. "Yes, yes. It was the bar!"

"Does your friend know anything else about him?"

"That's all she told me," she said, shaking her head, "they only talked for half an hour before she collapsed. She's quite the drinker." Ayatsuri believed it. You would need to be heavily intoxicated to want to go home with that sleazeball.

"Okay. I'll head down to the pub then. The Cactus Bar, is it?" The store owner nodded. "All right. Hopefully the bartenders or the frequent visitors will know more about the yellow suited scumbag."

"Um...you need to be at least eighteen to enter. The Cactus Bar is really strict about their rules."

"I'm almost fourteen. It's fine," he assured her, grin on his face. "Thank you for your help. I appreciate it."

Before Ayatsuri could get up to leave, the woman "umm"'d again. "Would you like to buy one of my plants?"

The genin hesitated, eyes looking over the potted, thorny, plants. He wanted to say "no", but...

"Damn it." The door shut behind Ayatsuri as he adjusted his arm which was wrapped around a potted Prickly Pear. It was sort of awkward to carry, and he had no idea when he'd be returning to Suna. "All right. Let's go to the bar." Raising his eyebrows at his new friend, Ayatsuri began walking, avoiding eye contact with the brutes that collected around the center of the street.

"Really, now?"

His tone hadn't changed, but his face hinted that he wasn't in the greatest of moods as his hands, both of which were gloved, came out of their respective pockets. He crossed his arms as he stared with a killing intent into the man's eyes, who swallowed in nervousness as he shook his head.

"I'm sorry kid, I can't let you in here. You aren't old enough."

The white-haired, red-eyed male looked at his glove, snapping his fingers as a spark was formed. The bouncer here probably didn't know the Hibana clan, meaning he would just think the spark was a trick, and nothing to be afraid of. Oh... oh, how unfortunately wrong for him. The kid, who was only eleven, yawned out as he snapped again, another spark showing.

He was... dressed pretty nicely, considering he was in the desert. This little village happened to be the perfect place to spend the night, since it was out of the big village- he hated that village. On top of that, he wanted to burn stuff... Suna wouldn't let him do that. Nope, not at all. Kashuo Isaku closed his mouth as he pointed his left hand at the man, closing his eyes, and forming his hands to snap again.

"Last chance, before I have fun."

The bouncer gulped again, taking a step back and reaching for the pistol at his side. Sure, it wasn't exactly a great way to fight, but few people were willing to contend with someone who had a gun to their face. Kashuo was one of those people. Letting out a sigh, he shook his head... then smiled, very fiercely. He snapped again, the spark being created this time bursting into a wave of fire that made the guy's clothes start burning, spreading to nearby things. Quickly, Kashuop threw dirt on the small fire he'd made to show what he could do, putting it out before the bouncer was burned badly, although he'd no doubt feel the pain from the heat.

"Who the hell are you?"

Kashuo scoffed at him, pocketing his left hand and holding the right out once again. With his left hand in his pocket, he wouldn't be putting dirt on this fire, should he do it again.

"Let me in."

"Is that...?" Ayatsuri stopped in his tracks, eyes shining in the fire that the bouncer's clothes were momentarily consumed in. "Yeah. It's the bar. Looks like some kid is trying to threaten his way in." Strange, this boy really wanted entrance to the bar. Perhaps he had an important meeting with a crime boss?

Ayatsuri was all for justice, keeping people safe, your average heroic protagonist. Though his methods of bringing said justice was a bit rash and chaotic. If he saw a woman getting attacked by someone, Ayatsuri would be more likely to kill the offender than detain them.

"Hey! What do you think you're doing?" Potted plant on the ground, Ayatsuri had an unfurled scroll in his hand. "This village has enough crime, don't add on to its troubles."

"...That also works." The bouncer took a few steps back before rushing into the bar. It didn't look as if he was running to hide, but as if he was going to tell someone. But for now, Ayatusri the burning shinobi would be left undisturbed.

With a poof of white smoke, a feminine-like puppet emerged next to Ayatsuri as the boy simply let the unsealed scroll drop to the ground. Warawara shivered as Ayatsuri's left hand sprouted invisible chakra strings which attached to the puppet. For now, his other hand would be kept free.

"Come on! Don't tell me your scared of a little wood!" Warawara creaked as its jaw moved rapidly, almost as if it was mocking the boy in laughter.

The cool, battle-ready exterior was a bit of a ruse. Ayatsuri was confident, but not like he usually was. This kid wasn't just making fire, he was making...uh...burn? The puppeteer was unsure what element this was, but any sort of fire spelled trouble for a genin's puppet arsenal.

Spoiler:
Puppet Name: Warawara | [ Creepy Crawly ]
Rank: C
Range: 10 Meters
Type: Offensive
Description: Warawara has the rough outline of a woman. Or rather, feminine-like features. She has pale ivory skin due to the compressed white wood that makes up her body. Instead of having the head facing forward like a regular person's, her head is pointed slightly upward at an angle. Long, silky, black hair extends down past her shoulders. A tattered cloak and clothing exist on Warawara, all being neutral colors. The eyes are made of glass, with a grayish sort of blur for an iris.

Weapons:

  • Inside the head of Warawara are three mechanisms that will fire off senbon. The exiting points are located on the sides of her mouth and at the bottom.
  • In the forearms are six sickle-shaped blades, almost looking like scythes, with the tips coated in sleeping poison. The blades are several inches long, allowing them to retract back into Warawara's arms.
  • Within the chest region are three general toxin tags, and with a surge of chakra one of the tags will release a gaseous form of the poison. A small portion of the upper chest will open as tiny fans spin to push out the poison.
  • In both thighs of Warawara are mechanisms that allow kunai to be launched from the kneecaps which can pop off and on.
  • From the shins to Warawara's toes lies a thin metal plating, allowing for more damaging kicks.

"Hey! What do you think you're doing?"

Kashuo shot his glance to the source of the outburst, noting the scroll but not caring enough to do anything about it. His face was pretty lackluster in the emotions department, as he sighed.

"This village has enough crime, don't add on to its troubles."

"...That also works."

At least this guy was going inside. Whether or not it was for help, Kashuo didn't much care. His day was ruined by this headstrong brat anyway. Kashuo kept his left hand in his pocket as his right was at his side, handing down. He wasn't in position to snap, but didn't much need to right now. With a white smoke appearing around him, a puppet came into view as the white-haired, red-eyed boy laughed out loud, quite voraciously.

"What the hell, kid?"

"Come on! Don't tell me your scared of a little wood!"

"Kid... you'd best check yourself back into line."

As a taunt to the other boy, Kashuo Isaku snapped his middle finger and thumb to create a spark, which glistened in his eyes as he smiled. He placed his right hand in its respective pocket as well, looking forward to the man with the wooden puppet.

"I'll give you one chance to change your mind about this fight."

Wood, against fire? That wasn't remotely fair. ...wait.

"Actually, scratch that. I'll give you 10 seconds to run away."

He grinned while baring his teeth at the same time, eyes becoming cold and dark, although still red. Almost like blood.

"On second thought, 5 seconds."

He was shortening the time. Wood. Wood burned very nicely, as did cloth. And skin. And paper. And grass. And other things. But wood! Wood burned very nicely.

"Oh screw it-"

He pulled out his right hand and snapped his fingers as he waved it at the man, a wave of fire appearing and being sent towards them.

"Not a chance."

Ayatsuri fell silent, focusing completely on his to-be-opponent. With not a lot to go on as far as the boy's skill went, Ayatsuri had to completely analyze everything he did. Things weren't looking too good for the puppeteer, so any useful information he could pick up would greatly benefit him.

The boy created a spark by snapping his fingers. A tiny flame emerged but than immediately vanished. He did something similar with the bouncer, causing his clothes to catch fire.

With the clacking of wood, Ayatsuri guided Warawara away from the wave of flames, the puppeteer followed suit. It looked like just regular fire. Maybe Ayatsuri had been mistaken, maybe it wasn't "burn". Whatever the case, Ayatsuri was expecting to have to repair a puppet or two after the battle.

Long, black hair moved back with the rushing air as Warawara quickly approached the fiery boy head on. Opening its mouth, the puppet shot three sets of three senbon toward his middle region, totaling nine senbon.

Fingers hard at work, Ayatsuri's free hand moved up to his chest, palm facing outward, a common puppeteer stance.

"Fucking puppets."

If there was any one type of person who Kashuo hated more than anything else, it was puppeteers. They always thought they were so good, so experienced and so unbeatable... and they were always stuck-up like shit. Oh how he hated them with such a fiery, fiery burning passion...

Oh, fire.

FIRE.

Kashuo's eyes lit up like a spark when the puppet and puppeteer dodged the wave of fire suit. The wooden puppet with black hair moved forward quickly, shooting senbon towards his mid region. Keeping his other hand pocketed, the white-haired boy jumped to the side to avoid the senbon, and snapped his finger to create a small (three-inch long) shank of fire, extending from his index finger, but hid it behind his body before it was shown.

YAY, FIRE.

Kashuo slid along the ground for a few moments before staring down the wooden puppet and running around the puppet, circling it and getting closer with each step. he wasn't a blur or anything, but unless the puppeteer was looking for it, seeing a small three-inch fire shank would be nearly impossible.

He'd burn this puppet to the ground, and then move on to the puppeteer... with a slow, painful death. Maybe he'd cut him... or, he could burn him... BURN. FIRE, BURN.

The extension, made of pure Neton chakra, can sear through most metals over a long enough period of time, and in very dire situations can be used as a Fire shank in combat.

A frown formed at Ayatsuri's face. The fiery boy refused to do another katon technique. It seemed as if he was setting up for one, though. He dashed around Warawara, cutting the distance between the two of them. Possibly a silly move on the boy's part, since most puppets excelled at close range combat.

"If only I could solidify my chakra strings. This brat would be all tangled up! And then I could squeeze and restrict him! Unfortunately, that's a higher tier puppetry move." Ayatsuri was kicking himself, he spent too long on his puppets and building things and not enough time on his jutsu!

His fingers twitched as Warawara's chest popped open, two of the three general toxin tags exploded as the tiny fans began to spin, pushing the fast-moving gas further. Simultaneously, six three-inched blades emerged from Warawara's forearms. The puppet quickly lunged toward the boy's general location, hacking and slashing with its arms to hopefully land a hit on him.

The puppet... opened up? What the hell. There were explosions, and then gas appeared; instantly, Kashuo slammed his feet on the ground and jumped back as a reaction, not sure what it was that was in the gas, or if it was just plain smoke. As if that wasn't enough though, the puppet lunged at him head-on, much like he had just done. Throwing his hands together for some hand seals, hidden in the gas and making it impossible to be seen, Kashuo leaped into the air and aimed his hand at the location of the puppet, which was still following him.

The chakra buildup was getting full, quickly. Soon there'd be nothing restricting him from letting it fly. He could feel the surge of the energy going by him as his eyes glazed over, focused on the puppet. Everything else became blurry and out of focus, but the puppet's details were still there, if not more so. When the buildup became too much, Kashuo Isaku let it release, and a fire was formed in the middle of his palm, almost to the exact same size. He seemed to pull his arm back quite quickly, as if it was shot, while the fireball began moving at the puppet.

Dodging would be hard, and it'd finally catch on fire and burn to death! Mwahahaha!

"Damn it. Taking on an opponent with just a single puppet is too tough. But if I bring out two, he could potentially burn them both down. I only have three with me. I don't want to have to stop and make repairs."

Warawara sped toward the fire boy, bladed arms coated with sleeping poison at the ready. A sudden movement from his opponent indicated another one of his fire techniques. Ayatsuri decided he would face the fire release technique head on.

Well, not Ayatsuri, but his puppet. Third degree burns weren't on the teen's "to-do" list.

The puppet's jaw hung open, shooting another three sets of three senbon. The senbon easily shot through the fireball, which provided a bit of stealth as the young teen who launched the fireball wouldn't be able to see the senbon until they emerged from the back of the fiery orb. Being a low-level jutsu, the senbon weren't in any danger of melting.

Ayatsuri's fingers stretched and curled, Warawara charged forward and took the fireball head-on. Warawara was made of compressed wood, so it'd take a while before the wood burned enough to make the puppet useless. Maybe a minute or two.

Not stopping, Warawara released the final general toxin tag in its chest and swung its bladed forearms at the fiery boy, wildly waving them in the hopes to land a cut.

Instead of having the head facing forward like a regular person's, her head is pointed slightly upward at an angle. Long, silky, black hair extends down past her shoulders. A tattered cloak and clothing exist on Warawara, all being neutral colors. The eyes are made of glass, with a grayish sort of blur for an iris.

Weapons:

  • Inside the head of Warawara are three mechanisms that will fire off senbon. The exiting points are located on the sides of her mouth and at the bottom.
  • In the forearms are six sickle-shaped blades, almost looking like scythes, with the tips coated in sleeping poison. The blades are several inches long, allowing them to retract back into Warawara's arms.
  • Within the chest region are three general toxin tags, and with a surge of chakra one of the tags will release a gaseous form of the poison. A small portion of the upper chest will open as tiny fans spin to push out the poison.
  • In both thighs of Warawara are mechanisms that allow kunai to be launched from the kneecaps which can pop off and on.
  • From the shins to Warawara's toes lies a thin metal plating, allowing for more damaging kicks.

"You're really starting to piss me the hell off."

Kashuo's voice rang out. With his tone, irritance was obvious- what wasn't, was the fact that the three senbon which the puppet had shot from its mouth and had gone through the fireball had pierced straight into the palm of his hand.

Normally it wouldn't be a big problem, but because they had gone through the fireball and were relatively light in mass, they heated up very quickly and with the material from his glove had melded to his skin. Temporarily at least. It'd be fairy easily to pull them out, but he couldn't do it right now- not when this kid was pissing him off like so.

Besides, he had another hand.

The puppet did take the fireball straight, though, which was a good thing. At least sometime soon, it would burn to a crisp. But irritated, burning things was no longer on Kashuo's primary list- instead, kicking this guy's ass was the number one thing he had to do. The puppet's chest opened and the same gas that had been appearing for awhile now came out again, as well as the blades on its forearms swinging wildly.

The white-haired boy twisted his body in the air while it still was, and landed on the roof of the bar he was trying to get into. This would be a good opportunity to shatter the place.. but that wasn't on his agenda either- unless this kid went inside at least.

Even still, Kashuo had a few tricks up his sleeve. With the gas from the puppet, seeing this fire here would be difficult- not to mention the fact that he was still on the ground while they were on the roof. The gas immediately starting filling the area, the smoke being very dense and heading down to the ground.

His right arm hang limp at his side from the senbon in his palm while his left arm was prepared to fight the puppet head on. The smoke from his jutsu would dilute the toxic gas the puppet was releasing, but he'd moved far enough away anyway.

"I'd say you have about three minutes to kill me, or you're dead yourself. Probably less though."

He smirked as the smoke went up and down around the area, covering their location. It wouldn't last much longer, but he didn't need it to- once it was surrounding the guy enough, he'd just ignite it and boom! Bye bye annoying kid, and annoying bar.

Spoiler:
NAME| - Kemuri / Smoke
RANK| - C
RANGE| - Close/Medium
JUTSU TYPE| - Ninjutsu
ELEMENTAL AFFINITY| - Ibiton[Decay]
CLAN| - Hibana
DESCRIPTION| - One of Kashuo's less direct techniques, Kemuri creates exactly what it is named: It starts by Kashuo snapping either hand, creating a spark that catches something on fire, naturally. From there, the fire stays exactly where it is and burns up the gasses around it to make an incredibly dense smoke that is nearly impossible to see through and difficult to do anything in, as it causes anyone in it to cough. As well, the more practical use is that this smoke is primarily made of hydrogen gas, which means that another snap from Kashuo will cause the entire area covered by the smoke to completely explode in a dense fire.
