House of Cards | Blooming Spade

[ \The Meeting House | Kumonohora | The Heart of the Chiroptera/ ]
The reclusive fort housing the survivors of Kumogakure no Sato's destruction, located in the center of Chiroptera Forest whose dangers and local superstitions provide a natural barrier to the rest of the world. Nestled in the roots of one of the ancient trees, the people here are learning to survive alongside the ancient forest, the local Koumori serving to help things along. However, carefully hidden away underneath the fort the shinobi way of life continues on in the shadows in Kumonohora....

That idiot....

His ragged breaths hitched with every shudder as fresh waves of agony tore at his thoughts, amethyst eyes squinting to survey his surroundings with his pain-blurred vision.

So many clones.... Earth, considering the ones that were crumbled. If he could identify the one who was the original, and kill him, then all of the clones would crumble, too. But... how could he identify the original when they all looked the same? And there was the fire-user, too....

A slow, careful rise to his feet, a quick survey of the situation--red blood pooling, the other boy was dead. One of the many enemies--earth clone or original, he wasn't sure--kicked his burnt back and sent the genin collapsing back to the ground with a howl of pain. Salty blood filled his mouth, his tongue bitten partway through.

His back felt like it was on fire.

He was useless.

Water flowed in a great wave, turning the army of earth clones to mud and sweeping up everyone.

Bubbles formed around Saichi, Jenzhi-san, and the other boy's corpse, keeping them safe and protected in the water as electricity surged through the liquid, enough to easily knock the remaining two enemies unconscious before they, too, were trapped in bubbles.

The sudden wash of water had been a shock to Saichi, the cold water soothing his burns but also filling his lungs, leaving him coughing up water and blood once he had been saved by the bubble, back throbbing from the spasms. Amethyst eyes watched as the water-level slowly lowered until the bubbles popped, water swirling around the teen's arms and legs from his position on all fours before it sank away completely and it was just the damp ground around them.

Four figures approached, and Saichi managed to identify them from their uniforms as three members of the Police Force and a single mednin.

The mednin approached him first, her gentle hands carefully removing the remains of his shirt, revealing burned flesh and the lean muscle of his torso, sending fresh waves of pain through his body as he collapsed onto his chest with a groan, closing his eyes and gritting his teeth. Waves of healing chakra dulled the pain, but the injury remained, and a poultice and bandages were applied to the wound, the bandages wrapping around the front of his torso as well. From his new sitting position, Saichi spit out blood and opened his mouth wide to reveal his tongue, the mednin knitting the flesh back together with more chakra before leaving him to see to Jenzhi-san.

The police officers, meanwhile, had approached Jenzhi-san first.

She had lost track of time, herself, and her surroundings. Each time she hit a clone and it crumbled she felt better and worse at the same time. Her anger washed over her like a fire, burning and all consuming. Her mind went from trying to make decisive blows and keeping the clones away from Saichi to simply wanting to crush them all. Each strike of hers became stronger, more destructive. One punch sent a clone's torso crashing into another clone, taking the two of them out with ease. Soon, the burning sensation began drowning everything else out, Osen began seeing purple, and her very skin really felt on fire. Osen had grabbed two clones by the neck, and was trying to choke them until they crumbled when giant rock came hurtling at her, knocking her into a tree, and pinning her to it. As the clones began to converge on her a loud sizzling sound came from behind the rock, accompanied by steam and finally the rock melting away, leaving behind a raging she-demon. On the outside, a cloak of purple energy had taken over her, covering her body in the shape of a boar. A single tail had sprouted from behind her, waving fiercely in the air. under her the very grass began to die, burning away in an acidic melting that left the ground barren where she stepped. With a tremendous beast like roar, Osen leveled all of the clones in front of her, crumbling them into nothingness. Finally, the clone began hesitating to attack her, to which she began smiling and lashing out with her chakra enhanced speed, two chakra tusks protruding from her face and running straight through a few of them.


A large wave of water careened across their makeshift battlefield, dousing many of the flames that had gone unchecked and sweeping up all the people. Osen was washed away for a moment, swept off her feet and careening out of control until she was slowed and eventually stopped by a bubble. While she could see Saichi in one bubble, he had slipped her mind, her eyes finally focusing on the two real culprits, two bodies slumped by an electrical charge. As they floated around in bubbles on the slowly receding water, Osen managed to pop hers prematurely, leaping at the two unconscious men. Only a swift kick from one of the police officers managed to move her off the path, however he had made a sacrifice, the very material of his pants burned away and his leg red and burning. Touching her wasn't a good idea, not at all. Realizing what must be done, two officers placed their hands together, sending simultaneous streams of water and lightning at her, shocking her until she was knocked out.

They didn't want to hurt her, but she was a danger to herself and everyone around her. Her chakra cloak slowly faded away and her body structure returned to normal, though she was out like a light.

She sure would have some sort of headache in the morning.
